I E will a three thousand hit guy certain- -Ly now a twenty eight hundred head Guy Due to a law season. I'm sure they'll adjust in their their voting and their criteria. I'd have Najan no question about it. Look when we talk about Ted Williams on his hall of fame case. You know it's always brought up that. He lost basically five seasons right in the primaries career because he served in the military Joe Dimaggio was in the same boat a lot of players in the same boat and I do think that voters will make their adjustments based on circumstances because we all know what two thousand twenty is going to be remembered for absolutely last one for today cinema grades at centigrades rates in.

It was a different experience than The years the two years I covered the oriels where it could be really difficult You know Mariano Rivera. I always been fascinated with because he was such an unusual personality. I tell friends all the time that you know. He's the same person now that he was the first time a met him when he wasn't necessarily superstar in another guy in those teams is homer Bush. Who is the kind of guy like the twenty fifth guy in the team in the ninety eighteen but homer was great to talk with because he just had an incredible memory and he spoke anecdotally? And so when you know after a lot of big events happened that year and you'd have crowded reporters going around jeeter. Who would you know? He made a practice. Derek made a practice of saying nothing I would run over two homers locker and ask him what he saw because he always had the most incredible observations and things that he saw and and it was really cool so he was one of the guys that I enjoyed interviewing.

Dodgers complete deal for Betts, Price
"Hairston junior of course former major league player world champion with the Yankees And of course the dodgers address analysts for Spectral Sports Net L. A. Jerry. Welcome to the PODCAST. How you doing very well very well? Yes on in Wednesday afternoon four o'clock eastern time. The big press conference at Dodger Stadium. Yes mookie Betts and David price coming to Los Angeles. I know you got to like train and your thoughts. I'm extremely excited. You know the dodgers the last few years. I've put themselves in position to possibly win a world series. It hasn't happened but I really believe adding guy like Mookie Betts in my opinion five baseball ballplayer all in all the major leagues. Excellent top of the order hitter. You know I think this is. He's kind of like the generations. Ricky Henderson excellent speed is they're gonNA NOT GONNA steal a hundred thirty basis because nobody does that anymore really. Nobody did that with ricky played But he gives you speed at the top power A great outfielder in right field. And you put him in the lineup with next month cody bellinger Justin Turner And so on and so forth this is arguably the best lineup and all of baseball and then add to This dodge rotation healthy David Price. Who Brings in championship type pedigree and I really believe? He's GonNa be pitching with a chip on his shoulder. I'm having something to prove the season so I'm excited for the dodgers and the city of La. Jerry dodgers needed a good right handed bat. That lineup is loaded with lefties. This bets bets is going to help that isn't he. Absolutely you know anytime you get a chance to Have the best players in all of baseball. And you're on your lineup. She'd He'd be in your lineup. It's GONNA help but you're always looking for balance and you know like you mentioned. The dodgers were heavy left handed The last two years with Jock Petersen Jason Cory seager cody bellinger Max money. There's nothing wrong with having left handed power but you WANNA kinda offset that a little bit especially with the emergence of Gavin Luxa the new Start second base going to the dodgers have. He's a left handed batter. So you WanNa make sure you balanced when you're facing writings and left these Throughout the season the playoffs so why not not get arguably the best right handed hitting outfielder outside of my trout in base going. That's looking back and Jerry. You don't look at this as as has some sort of rental you don't make a trade for guy player like Mookie Betts and not be willing to sign this guy who can be a free agent. After next year you fully the expect. The dodgers to ante up and paid has got to be a dodger for a long time. Don't you absolutely I liken this to like an Anthony Davis you you know you. Trade for Anthony Davis get him in the fold let them see. La Let him be Laker and see how great it is to be living in La very similar with mookie Betts. You get him over here here. Let them play in this ballpark. Be a dodger Every day Get accustomed to you know the lifestyle. LA which. Really second to none. Being in the bright lights of Hollywood. I I think he's going to love it here and WanNa sign back and certainly. The dodgers have the resources to sign a guy like me or about so. Hopefully he's comfortable here which I think he will be. And we'll love to play here because everybody played here including myself has a loved. But I'm not putting on that dodger. Blue Guess on inside the park a podcast is of course Jerry Hairston junior former major league player and analyst for the dodgers in their TV broadcasts The other part is MOOKIE BETTS AND PRICE COM from Boston and they're under a cloud of suspicion. They're under investigation for what went down with their ex manager. Now Alex Cora and the dodgers chargers got a bronco event they lost in the world series in two thousand eighteen to the red sox. Where do you make of that? Where Mookie Betts and David Price could possibly be implemented uh implicated and talk about that they took part in what could wind up being yet? Another cheating scandal baseball. Well you know what I've heard it. You know before the the commissioner ruled on the Astros. We'd heard rumblings for a couple of weeks. What was coming down the road and we knew it was pretty pretty bad We know that the commission she's GonNa ruin the red SOx pretty pretty quickly. That's what we're hearing And we've also heard it's not nearly as bad as the Astros so I'm kind of banking on that anytime you play a team in the world series and the Super Bowl or the or the NBA finals. You WanNa make sure both sides are on the up and up. And I'm hoping that was the case with the with the Red Sox I'm hoping Alex Cora bidding implement everything that he has with Houston in Boston but that's yet to be seen But you know now that is the guys like Bats and David Price on the fold You gotta wait and see. I'm hoping they weren't a part of it. Obviously David price being a pitcher. Sure certainly wasn't that part of it because it was on the offensive side of the ball. And I'm hoping mookie wasn't in wasn't a part of that as well so that's got to be seen Bob Open for the good in

"We had our number number two reliever out we had our right fielder out are left fielder out our center fielder has missed probably sixty to seventy games already may we we have had as many as twelve and and we've come up with DJ make you we've come up with G. O. or shower or shower and a few other players like that we've come up with bike track man and they these guys have done a fabulous job our show is fighting for the batting title any never have more than two twenty he was with the Cleveland Indians and seventeen in the playoffs and he was a defender but I'm not here and right now this guy has come into its own and hitting the if you can watch a walk around the clubhouse watches that stature and watch it and she has inner confidence as he performing with you know show at us hidden three thirty five to three forty I think you should close the leading the league in it it's a pretty amazing story of what he's doing we have not met a guy last year that hit two ninety seven with fifty one or fifty two doubles drove and ninety seven runs eight twenty three and twenty seven twenty eight home runs Miguel under our third baseman if it's been incredible Reggie Jackson gonna join us a hall of Famer problem one here on the sports leader I I got to ask you what you think of the game nowadays with the home runs flying out of the park your career I was forty seven with the ETS nineteen sixty nine and five hundred sixty three for your career how many would you hit now all right now I maybe twenty twenty two a year how all the rage I'm seventy three and seventy right now right this minute twenty eight seventy three could right but you know as far as the home runs you know guys I I certainly do think the balls hopped up along with that you're really only have two difficult ball parks to hit home runs and and one of those here in San Francisco and the other one is the in Detroit and other than that everything is a band box Yankee Stadium is a very small ball park they say Philadelphia smaller Cincinnati is smaller Houston is smaller and so you know that the game is been tailor made for you know home runs home runs attract excitement they attract fans I think that it's getting skewed a bit I think there's too many home runs what I've seen here it looks like I was checking this to catch just the test except do Modelo radio show on should only get a plug in I do my radio show on manta of sports section eighty two at eight o'clock in the morning and the last for just an hour but there's about thirty guys that are due to hit more than forty homers this year and there's a there's ten or twelve that are close to hitting fifty some believe I mean that that that that some books when that happens then it starts to skew the numbers and throw things out of whack for the true baseball fan people like myself and and people that follow the game for many years you included Greg no deal they hit thirty home runs up I remember you lead the league one year with thirty two I think it's seventy five so in the end the people think a Reggie Jackson I think the five hundred sixty three and a home run and you were the highest paid player chimes in the decade of the seventies I think you make more now because it's all about the three true outcomes and you struck out more than anybody but you struck back in you also walked a little bit so I I think today you would have more value but what I think a you coming up with your age teams Reggie how fundamentally sound you guys played I remember that read like you executed when you got bill Buckner third base for the seventy four World Series so it is the game last now because all everybody wants to do is launch images anybody pitch out anymore steal a base where's the game today red reverses when you played in the sixties seventies and eighties zero you know those things that you mentioned there okay gray are ours things have not with so many other says he started there for gap but you don't see it running anymore you very seldom see a really good relayed from from the outfield we don't see infield practice anymore eat this stolen bases gone and putting the ball in play a lot of time in order to advance a runner is gone because they have access well I should be and and and and launch angle and you know I don't think there's anything wrong with that as long as you recognize to keep it in proper perspective that it it's significant to put the ball in play you got a long list you got to learn to square the baseball first before your get concerned about exit velocity or launch angle I think there is a lot in the analytical side that's extremely important that you can take and give the players and players can make themselves better players there's an an ornate amount of information almost too much information I won't say there's too much information you can't download it all you can't take all of it to home plate but I shave with everything they have there's a piece of all of the data that is valuable for each and every player everything that they had it is not for every player it's the pieces that you can take off of the analytics that can improve your game you can go back and and realize and understand that analytics have been in the game for a long time meaning and analysis of the outcome or the potential and now it says the potential view of your opinion being implemented for the success of the team as Casey thanks Thangal did when he played Jenny billing insured at first base he played Elston Howard behind home plate and yogi Berra let three catchers in the game because he said gosh all three of these guys hit this picture I need to get them in the line up that's an analysis and that's an analytical projection weaver had announced the other by the name of Roenicke large that a hundred drove in a hundred and run it thirty six home runs that Gary raining he was the right hand hitter sixteen homers and drove in fifty five and John Lowenstein hit nineteen homers and drove in fifty lefty righty played every day and that combination what's that projection in the idea and understanding of a forecast of what would happen if an analytical decision that get those guys hit thirty six homers and drove in under intense thanks so it's been around before as we also say well this guy's more prepared to driving around this guy is more prepared to drive it to close a game this guy throws ninety two ninety three the other guy so ninety eight hundred at but he doesn't have the make up to be a close so I'm now going to give you an analysis of why I think I'm gonna put this player in the game and not the one that you obviously think that's an analysis and that analytical it's just that now they put numbers to it an arithmetic to it to where you can get a real forecast and what once in the last couple things I guess I I disagree with the one that's glaring for me is there's no real value in a player that drives have a lot of run they are the I is not yet a lot of credit because the they what they put in the formula is how many players get on base how much opportunity that person has all that to me has meaning but I said to the people that well let's take a look at the players and drove in more rounds and anybody in history and you can run down the top twenty top twenty five all up there and all the same and all of that hit for five hundred homers and know your names are Erin bondage mais oui and mutual Eddie Murray karez but currently really Williams Ernie banks Frank Thomas main Reggie there's a there's a whisper in your own name yeah I thought thought it out you are not yeah yeah everybody was waiting for that so I had no idea and I don't want them to the Mike drop let me let me just before we let you go we're thrilled to have one of the great tragedy Martinez Jackson joining us here you know the Asian giant's gonna play this weekend and they played last week and John and I were playing a game you know going around the the feeling sick and grace best player each position so just in the outfield if it's gonna be all bay area Oakland a San Francisco Giants out field you're in right and Willys in center who's in the left Ricky Barbero oh boy yeah I knew that because he knows the game inside and out I knew this would get a here's what I would say the I'll let you pick first and I'll take the worst one at the same time here's what I'll say eighty about Ricky enters Ricky Henderson after Babe Ruth Lou Gehrig mantle Mays error and Bobbi Clementi Hornsby Wagner that's a bad eight nine carries you start to struggle when you mention Ricky or very I think very is that guy it's just that he has the PT's over is that but Ricky Henderson it is one of the I always thought he was one of the top ten twelve no worse than fifteen greatest players in the history of baseball I guess name ten or twelve guys and after that you may say Ken Griffey junior you could say maybe bond but now you start argue even with those guys for what Ricky did he say that the third or fourth guy and feels I think is Tim Raines with six hundred eighty or ninety Ricky Henderson is six hundred more homers and a guy more stolen bases and the guys that the fact that credible that is what we should do John is put Ricky and laugh moved very to write an average G. G. H. are you cool with us I'll take that yeah yeah I feel when your young guy you could play center as well read your treasure welcome back now here's what I'm going to shoot it if any of those guys that you mention any of your you were everybody here needed to get a home run hit in the World Series who you gonna pick Mr access over thanks I appreciate they had on your show and and brag on me when I leave well the call yeah thank you my friend all right it was great he asked and answers you decide who really want it all run and then he just walked the walk you know when he struck out about a strike out again there was nobody more captivating to watch taken at bad the rich young demo go back and look at the seventy seven World Series it was it was incredible the credit well called it was just it was incredible really incredible game six he also had a home run off and it was don Sutton at the end of game five at Dodger Stadium yeah and he swung the bat the only swung the bat three times that night when you get the three homers so we have four consecutive swings in that World Series hit a home run on every single one what did he hit a ball completely out of Tiger Stadium in an all star game I got on the line out of the like the like child the transformer seventy one all star game I go into Tiger Stadium to do a game the original Tiger Stadium earning her well the kana Sir and we go into the booth and he's watching me and I look up at the light tower and I look at the light tower right down the right field line in a little shakes his head he gets very off the hard sell not that well on that one it was not right sadder they said no way you at that light towers he had light tower power it's awesome I think you hit the the transformers something of their as Kurt Guarisco I recall resigned when Reggie live yeah he's he's amazing fiat Roland that's what I want to hear it is running on their own I reset all the a big stores we got the supposed to come out by the hour him played some of the sound including Jerry Jones will try to get that in there for you as well great gases that we'll recap as well nice job I have P. the crew today traffic.
"ricky henderson" Discussed on WEEI
"One of the coolest things. The sport has maybe next to stealing home. It is the coolest thing because there is this moment where the ball. There's so many different ways it inside the park home run. Right. One, you can get him through some errors. But most of it is the ball is down the line. It gets trapped. They can't get it out. You kind of got some wheels. You're at second third. Why not go home and see? And you add all these cool little elements to it. And when you see it, because it's so rare, it's neat kind of dig it. You kind of put it up there with the triple play. Yeah. Right. The triple triple plays a great to have certain circumstances in order for a triple play for me inside the park home run always seems to happen when the ball Corrine. In a weird way. Fielder is usually thinking it's gonna bounce one way. And then it bounces past him. And then nobody's there to get it. Maybe like down the right field line. Let's say the center fielder fielders just to he still in pursuit. He's not quite there yet. And it just gets lost. But to me, like the way the Red Sox centerfield is positioned, always feel like if you had that ball, just. Right. And hit that inside part of that centerfield that kind of jets out if you hit that, just right. It's going to rock it all the way. The wall. I think you might be right. Yeah, that's probably the way. Yeah. Running always has to be a fast got to. Yeah. I mean, I just feel like it's just watching the guy Ron and getting the signals to just keep running. He's walking back to the dugout. Yeah. Grabber noxious. It's three hundred and sixty feet man. That's a long way to run. Chugging. What did I see the other day baseball related something like an on this date something to do with Ricky Henderson? I think it was the fact that he had like it was maybe last week, he had gotten his fiftieth stolen base. Oh, was that where Ricky said, I'm the greatest today? All time. I don't know if it's it was fifty at it was before the midway point even happened had fifty the year. You went out to get one hundred twenty three or something. Ridiculous. Ricky was great. And it just made me think that, that's a lost art. That is a lost art. We're not going to find someone that gets even close to one hundred basis anymore. Those with Ricky Henderson man, he really knew how to do it really had. He made it into like you said an art form. He had everything down. He knew where he knew he was fast, but he had hit the timing perfect. He could still all sorts of basis anytime he was on. He was going to steal a base, you still couldn't stop them like you knew steel, and you still couldn't stop them. He was he was incredible. I always liked Ricky Henderson because one of the things about his career is that he felt like he played with every major league baseball team in America. Rickie did Ricky played a lot of baseball, but I think in his late forties of mid forties, or something. He's still playing minor league ball can San Diego. You're right. Yeah. He was always trying to continue to find a way to play baseball, the my favorite thing about him because it was a fad in the early to mid nineties of referring yourself into third person. Yes. That going through his entire life. He was great. He probably still sit there. Yeah. Fixing greatest of all time, Rick. Was that story about John Olerud true about he told John John positive? I think it is. But somebody told me it wasn't, and I believe that the story goes, John was on first base, which John and he wore a batting helmet on the field. And eat Ricky told him I played with the guy in with the Mets that wore a batting helmet on the field. And John Lord said, I was that individual. And somebody said that, that was an urban legend, but I don't want to believe that. So I'm I think I'm always going to believe that, that was true till the dad die. Yeah, I'm gonna believe that Tila die. Because that's a cool story. And that opin amazes, Ricky Henderson. And I think that's awesome. And so, I don't wanna believe that that's not true. Ricky Henderson played which didn't know that. His on. He had so many teammates, he can't keep up with everybody you played with right? Keep up with every single person. All right. Lebron James knows every single person that has ever been on. He's ever been on a roster within the NBA. Like a guy who's never never played on the Cavaliers in his early days, just or do you think NBA team is just too close? Okay, if you had to take a guess how many teams would you say you played for Ricky Henderson a major league baseball. I wanna say twelve you'd be really close thirteen thirteen. That's a lot of baseball now say, thirteen but obviously. That's less than half. The teams. With the times that actually might be what was his last year in the majors last year, two thousand three okay so sorry, well, 'cause I'm thinking with the Diamondbacks and the raise arrival in teams are a major league baseball thirty. So there's thirty teams. So with their rival in ninety eight kinda say thirteen was close to half the teams baseball. Those probably don't count know he did play with the as four times four seven times. But each time he went back to the different team. Yeah, that's true. You can't expect Ricky Henderson, every single person played with that he edges. Nineteen seventy nine and left in two thousand three it's too many teams like you could go to Henderson and go. Hey man, I was on the Expos team with you. I don't know if you've played for the Expos on the Expos team of you in eighty seven he probably go really okay? Great. That's awesome. And again, I mean, there's another one, first ballot hall of Famer, but ninety four point eight percent. Yeah. Yeah. How do you. How do you why don't what does Rick Anderson, why wouldn't you vote? He has four major league records today, rear stolen bases. Career runs career leadoff home runs. Remember later on. It is career of sudden, he just started jacket home runs left to right. Yeah. Leadoff hitter and then one hundred thirty stolen bases in a single season which will never be touched. Now, never be touched never be touched. That's he, he was great leader used to hit leadoff home runs. News. It's the best the best. He talked himself in the third person. Could you hate Ricky Henderson? Said, Ricky said, Ricky fed Ricky, and Nevertheless, I was just bring it up. An inside the park home run was pretty pretty awesome. House David Ortiz doing any latest on the rumors about him evident affair with the drug lords wife stories getting crazy. Yeah. I've all I all I know now he's safely had a second surgery in Boston. Yeah. I saw cartoon that said, David Ortiz in a hospital bed that's said after fourteen years with the Red Sox. I'm not ready to no, I'm not going to join the angels, which is kinda cool. But we all eventually joined the angels. There's no unless you want to join the group, but we all eventually joined the angels, so glad I'm glad he's still kicking around kind of a neat little little little cartoon. But I'm a little worried for David Ortiz. I said this yesterday, and now there's more and more. This drug Lord story. That's popping out. I'm a little nervous. For David Ortiz. I hope that in, in America, he's got more people around him that will have his back, but it's a little scary. So this seems to be more and more. I know they got a second suspect now. Great good Lord. Yeah. It's going to come out in a TV movie or something. That's what I'm kind of wondering about like the more the more it has momentum. Like the story gets more and more, there's more information coming out, it builds up steam and the more we find out about this, the more we're going to be like, oh, no. This is kind of it has the element of the TMZ world were kind of all tracked into like there's a little bit more of the story. It's got a little bit more. But at the same time you're cautious about that information because it's scary and really dangerous and the ramifications are really bad, right? Like we all kind of tracked into the CD side of things. And that's why gossip magazine sell so well. But in this case, the more information that, you know, if this story is true, and it builds and you get more and more information on it, you almost really start to fear for David Ortiz, because the, the tentacles can reach anywhere. Like anywhere at any time, and I don't wanna hear that somebody was successful getting David Ortiz, like three weeks from now some hoping by being in America, he's more or less surrounding himself with people, where that kind of stuff may not happen. So but I read I read a piece in the New York Post with the Yankees and Mets they brought it up and some Dominican players for both teams said they've been told by their parents never to go back to that country. It's so dangerous do not go back. Well, there's also reports I think it's the Dominican where vacationers just randomly been dying. That's true. That's another problem that yeah they had the Dominican. No, it is. Because they're they've had a very bad PR like the last few weeks as a country. So it's just a scary time for a tease. It really is stay away. It really is. Yeah. Espy nation radio Espy, again on Twitter at Tony radio. At Ron Culver, and that's Ron with two ends this nation. Am. Power hour with Jay gasping. I believe they actually had to go to instant replay horse racing interference in horse racing. The horse even know did something wrong. That'd be my biggest question. I can't believe the horse racing people what I would have done is just had a log review, not changed anything, but then you still have some saying they had all the fall and then you can have that to do something for the first time in a hundred and forty five years. But that never happened. Now you might be saying, Jake and probably didn't have replay back in eighteen forty eight whatever year the survey starting Jose. What's Twenty-nine probably? Why are you saying probably they definitely did? Maybe they don't know. Technology. They, they did a ventures and gain. They went back in time.

"With Ricky Henderson. No, I'll tell you one thing about Ricky Henderson. It's he gets a bad rap. He really does. Because when you play against them, you know, he kind of does stuff that Urculo bit. You know, he snapped the ball down catches it. And you know, he's got the antics when he hits a home run and all that stuff. But I'll tell you what I was teammates Ricky, I absolutely loved him. He was Kuwait. He's a super person, you know, he's a the very much family guy. And I just really like Ricky Henderson. You got to be something really admired a lot. So all those things those those those kind of like opinions, you have somebody that's across the field that they don't know. No. Yeah. Yeah. You don't know. Rivers that with that. Did you play with Mickey rivers know? Mickey was busy was a little bit for me. Okay. But Dion Sanders played with Dion Sanders. And and you know, all the stuff about time time, and whatever Dion Sanders was one of the most like guys on our team because you get away from the lights and all that stuff. He was just a regular, dude. And so down to earth and everybody loved them. So you get those notions of what people are like, and you know, until you get to know him a bit. And that happens it happens in all sports when you look at the opposing team, and and you know, somebody's trying to to swag and all this other stuff who's that guy guys that I played against that. I thought we're terrible. I didn't know anything about him though. Baseball my opinion of them as a baseball player, which is wrong because I really did know them. I think all players do that. Don't you think Steve players make that I sure sure do? And sometimes it's a sometimes it's a protective mechanism to try to maybe insulate yourself or to get an edge on the opposition to try to not like the opposition to try to give you some fuel to go out beat the guys. But when you really when you really break it down, and all of a sudden, you meet them, you have this guy is a great guy. And he the game where he plays already works hard. You know, and you know, you you come away with completely different opinion of. So that was a good lesson for me when I went to different teams. I got the players. Yeah. Vita, you know, you talk you talk to Ricky all time vita, and I think that has a lot to do with if you when you first see Ricky Henderson play all the little things he does with the gloves and all the little antics does. And when he goes up to the plate. But I tell you what. Talk about leadoff hitter. He was probably the best leadoff hitter in a game. And he's a saw the off to feel as you saying Bill I've gotten to know of a bit. And I I know his mom, but he's just a regular guy but come Showtime on the field. He's all in. I wish I could play with nine. Vicky Henderson eight make a comeback could be rookie. Henry I don't think just maybe not. I've seen you run before. Yes. So Steve before we let you go. You had a question. You said you wanted to fire at vita. I want you to give them a good question here stumbled. Hey, let me get a question by. Okay, vita. I watched you growing up. You know when you're with oklaho-. Gee, I mean unbelievable. I just I I love watching you pitch tiger stadium. I mean, some of the games that were televised. D I think you pitching the all star game at tiger stadium. Yes. I did. I mean, it wasn't even close in the question. I wanted to ask you because you are so damn dominant. Is you know, the judge machines back then were different than they are. Now, I think they've made sure the they calculate the speed differently. Now, I think some people said that Nolan Ryan really two hundred seven or eight because everybody knows by what did you really throw? I mean, you have to be dwindling to the hundreds no. I think I was like ninety nine to five hundred sixty with a little movement on it, though gets a jump. I know that. But, but no, I think I think if they calculate that you definitely be in the hundreds. Okay. Say that. But you probably set me up because you probably hit three six. I don't think we we face each other. But maybe once or twice because you are with the giants then right? Yeah. Absolutely. Seven eight. Yes. And then he was there and early eighty f-. Okay. I got you. Okay. Look that up. Definitely tell vita that you're like two or three offense. Steve sax. Used to love watching you pitch. And his you know, it was it was the big thing. Then that you know, whenever you pitch. It was just a complete dominance you love to pick up on the strikes on. Right. And I wanted to one of the questions I wanted to ask you is how many curve balls in a game which you throw. I don't remember you still a lot Kirpal house about set it if I did face. Yup. Of another three occur. But they would make me feel curve, bows, man, he was on gas. Get to scene was moved the ball inside to write a run the ball on the hands. And I threw a another to same that tail away from righty. So that was my equalize it. But yeah, I probably through. I average probably hundred twenty pitches per game with the strike outs and stuff, you know, but probably five ten per game. You know, that's what I thought. One hundred twenty invited. You would you think that the coddling of players today? The fact that they don't let these guys go over one hundred pitches rarely do they let some guys do. But very rarely you think that hurts our healthy guys because these injuries are still climbing good evidence that hurts because I'm not shift. The guys get a chance to build up of strip by not throwing you know and just injuries now. And they've cut back on the I mean, they cut a gal at one hundred fifty whether he has a perfect game. No hitter. What? But you have the same amount of injuries than rotator cuffs. I even know what that was for Tommy John is the dating back in our day was rotator. Tommy, john. Can I ask you one more question? Yes, sir..
"ricky henderson" Discussed on The Starters
"Yeah. I mean, that's great. Does it but the bucks at twenty eight games over five hundred that has to come into play. You can't just look at a team and go while the, you know, five ten games. I've Yana says the box plying si-, well, he's doing on the defensive end as well stealing half blocking off the fifty percent. So you would have the Greek freak still number one. And then it's a little bit a toss up. Joe Johns doing obviously incredible. He doesn't have the defense that pull Georgia's. But he's just willing his team to win every night putting up these ridiculous numbers. But I really don't think it's that closer rice the MVP. I think is on us. And then the other two guys are off to the outside of us. You know knock on wood coming out with an injury and not playing for the final. Twenty games or so you think he's running away with this win sixty Milwaukee. And nobody else think the Houston climbing sitting a win sixty that has to be a pretty big factor because he so good. I think this is the year where winning is going to come back into the equation a little bit because it seems to have been sort of down the pecking order of voters list, I guess you would say requirements the last couple years with the Westbrook thing going on. I think it's going to be part of it. Because these guys are so close you need to split hairs a little bit trae or next one. Our next headline from yahu sports. Russell Westbrook breaks Wilt Chamberlain. Fifty one year old record with ten straight. Double. Yeah. It is news. I thought we had a rule here. If you break, Michael Jordan record or Wilt Chamberlain record than. Yeah. It is news worthy. Ten straight. Triple doubles. You can roll your eyes at the trip, and it's sometimes guys chasing them. And so on. I mean, that's happened for a long time back, Jason Kidd. I get all that. But still to fill up box where like that to have an impact on a game. Like Westbrook has shot at great. But he's doing everything else and his numbers are through the roof. He's the triple double king. He actually reminds me sort of he's the he's the. Westbrook. Triple doubles, Ricky Henderson sort of was to me to like stolen bases. But with power as well, and it's just them. And they're in a league of their raw Ricky's. The all time later leadoff homers too. He's had some power, exactly. And then he had all the stolen basis. But Westbrook is I mean, what triple record doesn't. He have really this is the only one left like the total in NBA history. Where did he's gonna get you think? He'll get my knees. These sorts of things I think are important to Russ he likes them. He goes off to them. And he gets them. Again. Look, we talk about stat suffering. He starts off. There's no question about it. But that's fun. Everyone's done it. That's happened throughout the league forever. Everyone knows what everyone wants to get those triple doubles and look at the box or the end of it. So it shouldn't discredit take away from that. He still goes at and get some every night because they are good that one and one when he gets in these last. I mean, they help him win but pretending that he doesn't sometimes chase rebound. All that extra cyst is silly because he does. But that's that's that's just the way the game is last night. You are in scored more than thirty points for the thirtieth consecutive game. And that Russell Westbrook happen on the same night. And I thought to myself which one we talked about on the job which ones harder to do. And this might sound dumb. But I think it's Russell Westbrook hands down triple double. Yeah. In ten consecutive games over James harden. I think there's a handful of guys. You're Durant harden. That could do thirty consecutive sounds dumb saying thirty consecutive thirty plus point games..

I'm doing great excellent. You know, it's funny this week. I heard I don't know if you heard this. But. Greg Williams who to me. Why don't really work in Cleveland locally in the week? And I have no desire for Greg Williams to remain the long-term coach Gregg Williams. I think he's about as old school is old school gets and he referred to some advanced analytics this week. And I almost was brought to tears Sam because well, I think I think that all sports need to have a good balance between old school scouting and new school analytics you'll so many old school football guys are so hesitant look where we are in baseball. Now. Right. The sport is completely run. Everybody has an analytics department in basketball and football is dragging their feet a little bit more in some organizations, but the here an old school coach like Greg Williams referred to some advanced analytics. That was that was wild for me to hear it must have. I don't know if you heard it. But it probably would've made you happy. If you did. Yeah. I think you're right football is behind baseball. And how that kind of stuff is gone, but everybody understands that it can help you how you present it to all of these people know, so head coaches are often the last guy to get on board. But it's because you need to present it to them in in the right away. Now, there's a ton of ways that say the PS database can help is those guys. But if you come to them initially where you know, something they don't wanna hear they're not going to buy. But if you immediately show them something, you know, a fancy pretty grasp the chosen exactly what they've been saying for years, suddenly they're all on board. So I think a lot of teams the league you're just starting to sort of see this time where the analytics guys or people that have been using the stuff within the Bill. Building for years are finally starting to figure out how to present it to coaches added presented to general manager is and you know, the guys bad again in front of the media. And that's when you're starting to see this filter out. I think it's been used a lot within the building for years already. But now we're starting to see those guys use it on a daily basis and get the headline stuff sent to them in a way that they're they're much more comfortable with gesturing at an and actually taking it on board. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analysts Sam. Baker Mayfield has had a tremendous season. As a rookie as put up some big old school numbers if you will. But when when you went from a pro football, focus perspective when you guys run the numbers on what he's done. How would how does he great out compared to some other rookie quarterback's of the past? Yeah. I think you do need to go to quarterbacks with a pass because he hadn't shoulders above any other rookie season right now. He's a top ten grade quarterback in the NFL. He's tense overall. Just one physician behind Russell Wilson. So you're already talking about it really really well graded player right off the five. And obviously pro football focus was very high invade your Mayfield coming out were the guy is the winter by for him saying that he was the best prospect in this draft in it really wasn't close to the next guy. I think so far. That's that is being born out. We have seen better performances in the past rookies. I think that twenty twelve season was a pretty incredible year for rookie performances. Obviously it didn't last because RG three in particular had a phenomenal season that year, and then tours and really hasn't been the same player since. But you know, Baker Mayfield is looking as good as we've seen any rookie quarterback. Look probably dating by twenty twelve season. We're seeing some really impressive play from him. And I think his play generally has been better than even the statistics suggest because you had one of the highest rates in the NFL right five and drop rates. And unlike most of the times when a receiver drops the ball, it's an incomplete passes. It's not doing that much damage to your passer rating, or whatever but Baker mayfield's have multiple assets that have been hit his receivers and my hands and ended up as interceptions. So those are taking a sledgehammer to operating over the course of the season. It's ninety three. Point four right now. And this is a season where passing is exploded operating ninety three point four is nice great at the moment. But it's his performance has been way better than that. We're talking with Sam Monson lead analyst pro football, focus Sam, let's talk about another rookie and that saquon Barkley who probably be battling Baker Mayfield for rookie of the year. From an offensive standpoint. There's been other good rookie running back but saquon Barkley make over two thousand total yards this season. How does he compare to Todd Gurley Leonard four nets and some of the other big rookie seasons from running backs? Yeah. I mean saquon Barkley just moved into first edition CFS running back rankings. He's the the number one guy right now through the through part of the season. He's been incredible. He's been everything that everybody who was championing him saying he would be coming out. I think he's been better than we thought. He might be there. The idea that he was a perfect running back prospect that don't think really holds up work holes in his game in particular. This tendency to to be a bit. Reggie Bush in terms of wanting to balance everything outside to look for that clay, but he's gotten a lot better in his first year at not doing that at taking ugly yards when they're there. And that's all there to be had. And it's still maximizing goes explosive plays getting huge games. Those are there. So he has been fantastic. I think again he's been as good as any rookie running back the receipt for a number of years. Really? He's I guess he's played as well. As Alvin Kamara did last year as a rookie on he's done more fulltime base. So he already has you know, two hundred more snaps than Kamara managed all last season playing that same kind of rate is Amari Cooper. Has memorial Cooper's play been much better. Or is just a the players around him made him much better. I think it's a bit of both, you know, playing wide receiver it so difficult to play. Well, if the ball isn't coming in your direction off the ball is coming in your direction in attachable manner. Having you can do about it. There's only so much fancy route running against air. You can do if the ball isn't coming your way. So I think we're seeing Amari Cooper was always a quality route runaround player that would get consistently open. And now we're seeing what happens when you target that guy. He's still a very good player and I play put up big numbers. And obviously, that's that's meaning that his greatest better because he's being given the ball and that talent is being maximized. So you know, I think that that was always there that that talent that play was always inherited his game. Even in Oakland. The raiders just weren't making use of it. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analyst. Sam. I know you guys today had an article about projecting Cuyler Murray's pro potential. I'm curious because obviously he's a top ten pick and major league baseball. He's giving compared to Ricky Henderson. He signed a four and a half million dollar bonus. There would have to give it back obviously at a even a better year than Baker Mayfield did this past year in college, which is hard to believe. But obviously, you know, people make a thing about the thing about Baker mayfield's hike, which I thought was over rated. But obviously calamari isn't even close those big as as Baker Mayfield. A what is his potential d do you think he could be a good NFL quarterback? I think he could be, you know, you're right people that the highest the big question Mark because people did make an issue out of Baker Mayfield. Tighter on Baker Mayfield is short for an NFL quarterback. But not, you know, it's not unprecedented. We've seen quarterbacks Baker Mayfield type successful in the past. They're not obviously, not as many as there are as you know, six with three quarterbacks, but those guys have existed and they've been good in the past. I don't I don't know that we've ever seen quarterback that is Kyla Murray's Hite house significant success at the end up, right? You know, he is going to be when we get the official number on him. If it ever gets that far he's going to be significantly shorter than even a guy like Russell Wilson. And you would be in legitimately uncharted territory. When it comes to that. Now, if you're going to do that, you have to be there has to be something else to say, well, okay. That's not going to be a problem because of this and his grading has been incredible. His is great this season at Oklahoma has been basically everything is as as good. As Baker mayfield's grade had been on that was the best we've ever seen from a quarterback, right? The best seasons we've ever seen at college with one of his own. So he has a level of the best play. We've ever seen coming out of college from a college quarterback. And we've been doing this going back to two thousand fourteen but we've seen some pretty good quarterbacks over that's fine. You know, we went back, and we also graded James Winstons freshman seasons. We have got Carson Wentz you got Jared Goff. We've got right. And they got all these guys and Carl Amari stacks up to those guys. Sorry.
"ricky henderson" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"So after after some some games, he's taking them out there and showing them some tips that had again, a lead and how to get a jump at how to steal and there's actually even a moment where the other team comes over. And he starts coaching them in the coaches to like, you know, what it's the independently. Like, it's fine. We'll we'll coach the team as well. And then we talked to all the players who were like that was really cool that Ricky was showing us on this. Stuffy does. But we couldn't do that. You know, it's not like that was useful information because he's Ricky Henderson the word just like some some sleds. And so it was just a this really fascinating moment in time. Yeah. It's like his stories. You heard when Ted Williams was trying to teach hitters at hand. Right. And I'll still when I think back at his numbers. The most runs in baseball history. The most stolen bases in baseball history it cetera et cetera. Twenty-eight people involved for it for the hall of fame. What's going on there? I don't know. But that's the interesting thing here is that there was a moment. I don't know. If you remember that's pretty gosh. What what year was it when toe he Ricky Henderson bounced around a lot of teams is in towards the end of his career. And he ended up on the San Diego Padres in the bigs at one point along with Tony Gwynn. And there was basically a retirement game for the two of them. And it was Tony Gwynn's going to be Tony Gwynn's last game. Ricky Henderson end up getting his three thousand hit in that game. But the hall of fame sent representatives to the game and had a ceremony before the game. That was basically lies. Hey, guys. Here's your here's your red carpet to Cooperstown. Let's ride off into the sunset together. What a wonderful story. Tony. Kind of takes that path. I think a lot of players what am Ricky says. No that's not for me. And he ends up playing seasons. All the way down to the independently. But that's the really fascinating question to me is like everyone, and we have tape of it at the time people like Ricky, what are you doing? Just wait out the clock. Wait, you're six years, you'll get into the hall of fame. It's what people do it's perfect. And for some reason Ricky Henderson was just like now that's not submit. Because he loved baseball so much, right? Where can folks find these podcasts? So our full season is out now. In addition to our first, you know, few seasons of people haven't heard the archives. They can go back. You can just go to thirty for thirty podcasts dot com. It's in the ESPN app. I'm basically anywhere wherever you're listening to this podcast..

"Ricky played until he was forty six and he had all these records, and then could've walked away as we've been describing with all these records under his belt, and then he just kept playing, and I think we showed. And I think we've all come to understand that there there wasn't that. We shouldn't think of that as sad or kind of like, oh this guy. Can't let go, you know, they're real reasons that he felt like he wanted to play and he loved the game and so forth. But it almost also circled around to so much of the Ricky Henderson legend is about the records. And so in a weird way the playing for that long. It's just another thing that you can add to all the hits all the stolen bases. Oh. And by the way, he played age forty six so it's almost like burnishes his legend as opposed to eat into it. That's an interesting way to look at that. Because one of the thought exercises. I did as we were doing this project was what do I really think of Ricki Henderson's legacy? That was a question I asked myself over and over in terms of his baseball career and to me. It was that it was that. He is a baseball lifer. And that's not a term you normally used for people who aren't in the big leagues their whole lives. But that is affected. What I came to at the end of this. And maybe it was mainly as a player, you still don't hear him talk a lot. Even though he's whip the Oakland A's is not like he's necessarily very he's not one of these out there guys. Like Magic Johnson went the Lakers kind of people or anything like that. You know? I mean to me Ricky Henderson is a baseball lifer. And this is high compliment as you can pay to any ballplayer. There is one of the thing that we kind of we're not planning, but we just actually noticed probably pretty late in the process. It's the two of the stories from this season the first story and the last story we're actually about players who were teammates together on Oakland as in the in the mid eighties during their heyday, Jose Canseco and Ricky Henderson, and then both of the stories we tell about them are in two thousand five at the exact same time. And in two thousand five Jose Canseco is writing this book. Use that it's like bringing burning baseball down to the ground for all these petty and weird reasons as we show in the documentary and Ricky Henderson is quietly or not so quietly plugging away still playing baseball for the chain Diego surf dogs. And so I don't know if you. I don't know how we tie those two together. But I don't know what it says about these two players at the same point in the career in the kind of choices and path that they ended up at these two incredibly different places. I can tell you exactly what it says Ricky Henderson cared about baseball hose it can Saco cared about money. If you look at everything that Jose Canseco did after he was blackballed from the game it all came down. So the fact that he couldn't make a living. I'm not saying that's not a thing to be concerned about I'm just saying that that was primarily his motivation. You see him trying to box people for cash and celebrity, you know, events and so forth. That's his business. I'm not judging what his desire was but Jose Canseco could've found himself back in the game. I honestly believe if he so chose instead he chose to burn it down. Because thought he was unfairly cut out of what could have been a far more lucrative career. Yeah. Ricky Henderson just continue to play baseball right at the lowest levels that to me is that if it's in terms of who those guys are so we're going to start to wrap up here. But. Do you have any thoughts of move talked about this a little bit? But does this feel like it got you thinking just about letting go and the end of careers. I mean, I feel like a lot of thirty for thirty or about that. I think of the Rick layer one even a totally different world..

"Call instead forty five year old Ricky Henderson got on the phone with his agent, Jeff Borris and said, what can you do to keep me in the game as an agent, I have never been bashful to tell a guy. It's time to take off your jersey if a guy can no longer compete at a major league level, I will be the first guy to tell him. I think the time has come for you now to get on with the rest of your life. But with Ricky even though when he got into his forties. I never felt that way about him. Look like his body was chiseled out of granite. Baseball. At least the way Ricky Henderson pleaded for as long as he pleaded is hard on the body. And the guy was a shoe in for the hall of fame. Everyone wondered what he was doing why he kept going, but his teammates learned retirement was a word that did not go over well with Ricky Dave Stewart was a teammate on the Oakland A's in the nineties at the time that I decided I was going to retire nineteen ninety-five. He was is mad at me about retiring as anybody could have imagined. And I got it. I mean, he's a close friend one of my best friends, and he was very very disappointed in me and didn't speak to me for a few days. And his thought was that you know, you love the game. And he asked me on. I said, yeah. Love baseball very much, and I enjoy playing it. But I don't enjoy playing it like on planet. He told me that that that wasn't a part of the plan. And he thought that I was premature in making a decision that I was making to retire. And I told him he's not in my shoes. Paul Abbott was a pitcher who played with Ricky when they were both with the Seattle Mariners. Then remember him watching the hall of fame ceremony on TV sitting there with them lower in the cafeteria or the kitchen eating lunch and him. Speaking up saying, you know, I don't want to be there. Like, what should I don't want to be there? What are you talking about goes? Because on there. I'm not here that means he was done playing. He didn't want to be done playing. He wanted to play forever..

We saw, from him last year that he did starting caliber first baseman but I don't think you'd start him, over the antenna it shame that stuck out. There, in left field because he's he's the first, basement national I belong but I. Think you'll, see this team if they do make the playoffs play around with that, lineup maybe Hoskins at first base a little bit yeah maybe. See move your nipple Williams Harare Queen and then Out there around in the the, outfield and then you know. You mentioned, Nola and you kind of get a weird case for the National League Cy Young this year I, think that as far as as far as. My, vote with your which I don't have one. Of course Today Grahn because he's been the best pitcher in the National League but as far as most. Valuable player there really isn't a standout. Matt. Carpenter sort. Of taking a taking a leading position players, of late but you know AVI buyers there as well but Aaron Nola you really can make a strong argument that he has been the most valuable player for any one team that's your definition of most valuable player right thank you. Have to look at our Nola revolt there and it could be one, of the strangest thing where, you see Jake degrom take young award Erin cola somehow Yeah I mean I'm not, gonna say he's going to win the MVP but I. Wouldn't. Be surprised to see in. Top three. Yeah, get some votes for sure and yeah well when you think about what defines an MVP and we go through, this every year when the awards come out? What does, it mean to, be an MVP for me it's you know you take away that. Particular player in plug in a random player? You know how big is the drop off where would the team be without said player. And you take knoll out of that rotation and. That's still going, to. Be a good squad. But you're right man he's been Mr. everything and. I mean the ERA. Two point, two four you know the whip I mean he's got it. All man and one hundred, sixty ks already Prevette has been pretty good with the strike outs the. One. Loss. Dole hasn't, been there but man you got some earlier is down, there in in Philly mad so the future's bright Ryan. Hey, let me ask you this. I I. Saw, on Twitter tweeting about John Ola rude and here in the bay area the Ricky Henderson John Olerud story has, been told a million times I used to? Have a, guy, that had, that issue for those that haven't heard it Ricky Henderson in Toronto. When when John Olerud went up to him?

"And no one can tell me now the game is more exciting than it's ever been no one could tell me that the game is not more exciting than it's ever been ricky henderson baseball was certainly much more exciting than what we have today and i'm aggie fan and i'm enjoying this yankee team and and so much about it but don't for a minute thank that this brand of no runners on base strikeouts are accepted and no one cares how many times you strike out i mean that's not you know that's not as exciting look what creates excitement is motion and if you don't have runners on base you don't have motion and what you really want is motion you want the opportunity to go from i the third from second home for a play at the plate on a steel whether he'll make it or not you want action no baserunners does not provide action like i don't like the nhl as much anymore but people can argue with me that there's plenty of action and there is so it's a good argument i can't really win that i can give you my opinion but i can't i can't win you over if you like the way hockey is played now versus the way it used to be played because there are there is plenty of action and there is plenty of opportunity goalies are better the athleticism is better the rink is the same size can have that argument another night but in baseball the lack of base runners and the number of pitching changes is not a more entertaining game but don't don't mistake that for me criticizing teams for using the shift of course you should use the shift it's legal it stops the other team from scoring it's irresponsible to not loot us the shift as long as it's legal but i don't think it's better for us as fans paulie parsippany next on the fan hey thanks for taking my call him on my way back from the stadium at the game tonight and i wanna talk about why it would be the biggest mistake to take grace hopper to the yankees these are the new york yankees and they operate a certain way and i for one would rather have them fail without an alex rodriguez type and win with one so i don't want someone who's gonna come.

"A different player and i don't have his on base percentage with me at the top of my head but i doubt very much cesspit assist has the same kind of on base percentage of a four twenty two the judges point about the yankees is that there's going to be no hit run those double steal i yeah i don't think so i really don't think so just going gonna turn the lineup it's going to be like another version of golf and hey if it wasn't games three fifty two on base last yes that's a seventy point difference that's a lot i don't under i don't understand you golf reference how's it going to be like golf because it's gonna be no like hidden behind the runner there's gonna be no like bunch true there is no hidden behind the runner and golf you got me there look i don't think it has i don't think my point was i don't think the yankees are going to be doing hit and run or stealing basis no matter who's hitting leadoff unless you're gonna bring ricky henderson back and i'm sure he would if you'd ask them but unless you're going to bring ricky henderson back i don't think there's stealing basis i really don't now listen in tie game in the eighth inning and they can pitch pinch run wade or something or wade's on first god is on i or ellsbury somebody's there in a big spot where you wanna stolen base they'll try it but for the most part day to day inning to gain the game they are not going to risk a lotta outs on the base path now the power and this lineup they're just not and they shouldn't outs are valuable outsor valuable and you don't do like see this is how i get into a lot of arguments for people especially like mons monzo for example brian monzo who's a big fantasy baseball player like people get off on stolen bases i don't they don't they don't do much for me i'll be honest with you i care about.
