"Five eighty five. Slugging percentage was the three hole hitter that provided a threat and that already scary lineup in was basically the reason they were able to get over the hump that year. Some other guys are honorable mention. I mean the red sox getting david roberts in two thousand and four of course he went on to swipe that bag in the postseason. The blue jays acquired david price in twenty fourteen. He helped them to a post-season run. The phillies getting cliff. Lee from the indians in two thousand and nine to get back to the world series the cubs acquiring rick sutcliffe from the indians in eighty. Four the diamondbacks get curt schilling from the phillies. In two thousand. You have the angels getting mark to share from the braves and the cardinals getting mark maguire from the athletics. All of those guys had fantastic. Runs down the stretch.

"With a four eighty nine on base percentage and a seven forty three slugging percentage the o. p. s. there is one point two three two absolutely locked it. He hit seventeen home. Runs and had fifty. Three rb went in one hundred games for boston. He had twenty home runs and sixty eight so almost topping his numbers there and half a season. I mean october. He was just as good. He reached base at a ridiculous six. Sixty seven clip. He had four home runs against just a few pitchers who actually pitched to him and ultimately fell to the phillies in the nfc. Yes but man was manny ramirez good for the dodgers and no eight. After he was traded. There he came back in nine once again but no eight. During his time he was absolutely lights out. The next one is fred mcgriff. The braves acquired him in nineteen ninety three. They traded vince more. Donnie elliott and melvin names to the padres firm griff. They were in second place in the nfl. West eight games back before ultimately winning the national league west by one game and they lost to the phillies. That year in the nfl is well but in. Nineteen ninety-three is time in atlanta mma griffith three ten on base percentage. Three ninety two slugging. Six twelve he had nineteen home runs fifty five. Rbi's which was more than his time in san diego that year. He was good in the playoffs as well and just fantastic for atlanta of course re-signing there and moving on but after that trade. He was excellent coming down the stretch. Another one by the astros carlos beltran they acquired beltran. The as got octavio dough. Tell the royal scott mark. Mike wooden john buck back in two thousand and four. The astros went from fifth place in the national league. Central seven games back saint louis and ultimately won the. Nfl wildcard that year by one game. They did lose in the postseason in the nfc to the cardinals but it was at no fought of beltran who during his time in houston to fifty eight but he had twenty. Three home runs and fifty three. Rbi's three sixty eight on base five fifty nine slugging percentage the two thousand and four postseason. He had clutch hitting hitting with runners in scoring position. He hit four home. Runs in the nfl ds that year to reach the nlc. He hit a home. Run in each of the four games in the in the nfl. Cbs before. Losing to the cardinals. I mean eight home runs in the postseason that year. He was absolutely fantastic and locked in at number four. I have lou brock of the st louis cardinals. The cardinals traded ernie brogue. Leo doug clemens and bobby shantz to the cubs for brock jack spring and paul toth. This was in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. They were in eighth place in the national league and after the trade they won the national league by one game and went on to win the world series lou brock sixty four after the trade to saint louis c. Hit three forty eight had a three eighty seven. On base percentage of five twenty. Seven slugging percentage. He hit twelve home. Runs had forty four r. b. is he only had two home runs and fourteen. Rbi's for the cubs. Before that. i mean they got the best of both worlds came back won the pennant and ultimately went on to beat the mickey mantle lead yankees in the world series and of course brock ended up in saint louis for the next fifteen years of his career so he certainly turned out long-term but short term is well going from eight games back in the national league to winning the world series next i have. Cc's abacha to the brewers. The brewers traded matt laporta zach jackson rob bryson and michael branly to the indians for c. Sobat the up. The brewers went from third place in the national league central four games back of the chicago cubs to ultimately winning the national league card. By one game they did lose in the nfl ds that year to the phillies so two thousand and eight manny ramirez to the dodgers and see sebastian to the brewers. Both of them were fantastic but neither of them could end the phillies. That year sobat made seventeen starts for the brewers after the trade going eleven two with a one six five era. He threw seven complete games. During those seventeen starts. He had three shutouts in one hundred and thirty innings only allowing six home runs. He had twenty five walks to one hundred twenty eight strikeouts and what makes it even. More impressive is his urine in cleveland that year and eighteen starts. He was six and eight with a three eight three year so he was absolutely a difference maker. He propelled him to the post season basically by himself. Seven complete games. Three of them shutouts. He finished in the top six. Both cy young as well. As mvp voting that year he ultimately did lose his start to the phillies in the postseason. Of course to walk to brett myers and then the home run by shane. Victorino that's forever etched in. My memory is a phillies fan. But oh my goodness i. It was just electric to watch. C c sabathia down the stretch the last two here. I have our ricky henderson being acquired by the athletics. The as traded greg dayrit eric plunk in lewis. Pola nia to the yankees for ricky henderson. This happened in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine the as were in first place up by two games but ultimately won the al west by seven games and went on to win the world series. So ricky henderson and eighty nine for the as he hit two ninety four had a four twenty five on base percentage four thirty eight slugging percentage but he stole fifty two bags in eighty five games. He also had seventy walks to only thirty nine strikeouts. Nine home runs thirty. Five rb is in sixty five games for the yankees only twenty five steals. He was sitting to forty seven. He had three home runs. Twenty two. rbi's so he was. He was perfect as their leadoff hitter. Turned into the best leadoff hitter in baseball as it was over for the rest of the league. Fifty two steals in eighty five games after a four twenty five on base percentage man. He he was just a menace on the base fast for oakland. And then the last one. I have here is david justice to the yankees in the year. Two thousand the yankees traded ricky. La- day jake. Westbrook zach day to the indians for david justice. They were in second place in the american league east. Three games back of toronto. They ultimately won the american league east by two and a half games and went on to win. The world series in two thousand injustice was a huge part of that for his time in new york. He hit three zero five three ninety one on base five eighty five. Slugging percentage twenty home runs sixty. Rbi in just seventy eight games. This was up from a to sixty five average with cleveland. So he was unbelievable. The yankees needed some left-handed pop in their lineup. And justice was just the guy to do it again. That twenty home runs sixty. Rbi's in seventy eight games and insane..

"And somehow was runner up in the mvp that year. Then there's also nineteen thousand nine hundred forty one ted williams yet. Another runner-up chalk. This up to joe dimaggio's fifty six game hitting streak but how does a guy who at four zero six batting average five thirty three on base seven thirty five slugging not win. The mvp williams led and war runs homers. Times on base. Dimaggio did lead in total bases. Rbi an extra base hits but my goodness what a year that is. Nineteen forty one. You had a guy hit four hundred and you had the other guy have a fifty six game hit streak and both of them in the same lake in nineteen thirty five. You had arche vaughan of the pittsburgh pirates get dutt. He never won an mvp. The hall of fame third baseman for the pirates. Back in one thousand nine hundred thirty five hit three eighty five. An on base percentage of four ninety one slugging of six. Oh seven he was eighth and runs tenth and hit seven total bases tenth in doubles ten triples eighth and sixth rb is and i don't think he even finished near the top when it comes to the mvp voting. Let's see he finished third that year for mvp just absolutely astonishing the years. These guys are having nine hundred thirty four. You have lou. Gehrig of the yankees. In addition to leading the league with triple slash radio led the league in war total basis home runs. rbi's he was third and runs. Second in hits ninth in double second in walks and he finished fifth in the mvp. Oh mvp voting and nineteen thirty four. He had forty nine home. Runs one hundred sixty six ice. I mean come on this just absurd going back in the day here and finally the last guy to do it lead the league in the triple slash and not win the mvp in one thousand nine hundred thirty three chuck klein of the philadelphia phillies. He was the. Mvp runner-up to pitcher. Carl hubbell who had a one six two point nine eight whip now. These are the pre cy young days so it made sense but klein lead position. Players in war hits doubles home runs. Total bases was second in runs and my goodness just looking at his year in nineteen thirty three twenty eight home runs. One hundred and twenty rb is of one point. Zero two five and again finished runner up because didn't have a cy young award that year. So vlad guerrero junior. He's in some fantastic company. When you listen to those names. In the years they had an ultimately fallen short of the mvp award in the american league but just briefly touching on the other awards. Where the odd stand here now in the national league for mvp. Fernando tat tease. Junior remains your favorite at minus two fifty in second place. Bryce harper at plus three eighty behind him freddy freeman at plus nine fifty. So it certainly looks like tat teases award but bryce harper's odds continue to increase and then looking at the cy young awards in the american league. Garrett cole still the favourite at minus one thirty three bobby ray closing in all the way down to plus one sixty to win the award and then the most up for grabs award. We have right now. Is the national league. Cy young walker bueller plus one sixty eight corbin burns after throwing eight no hit innings plus one seventy three and then max scherzer all the way down to plus two twenty eight after what he's done for. La so three horse race now in the national league. And certainly tossup coming down the stretch here in september but that'll do it for the third segments of the mcc baseball podcast brought to you by gmc. Podcast network will step aside here now for one last word from one of our sponsors one of our sisters shows but when we come back we're talking trade deadline acquisitions who were some of the best of all time.

So do yourself a favor and type that into the search barda. Check those out but here in segment number three. We're talking about the awards a little bit right. We did the roberto clemente award segment. One and two. Well now. we're talking about the season awards. Mvp cy young mvp awards in the american league. This one is still pretty much settled. I mean as of september twelfth so a few days ago shohei ohtani remained at minus six thousand so the clear clear clear clear. Clear cut favorite to win the award with vlad guerrero junior at plus one thousand. Five hundred fifty. But vlad junior is having just an absolutely monster of a season. I mean obviously the reasons behind. It is because shohei is avenue once in a lifetime type of season. He's one of the best haters in the league. While also having an all star caliber year on the mound he stole in twenty-three base is so i don't get me wrong. I mean shohei certainly deserves the award. But just looking at vlad guerrero where he stands in some of these categories offensively any other season. This guy would be the clear-cut mvp in the american league. I mean just listen to these categories here when it comes to rankings in the american league. He's first in hits. I in runts. I in home runs third in rbi. I in total basis. I in batting. Average first in on base percentage i in slugging percentage i in oh p. Ps i ps plus. I in times on base third in walks in fourth in extra base hits goodness how many times can i say i within the last two minutes just unbelievable so this guy thinking is he. The best is he having the best season of all time not to win the mvp award and it was a bit of a struggle and how to kind of defined the best offensive season and now win the mvp. But one easy way. I was able to kind of break down. Some of the statistics was to look at players who led their league. And what is called the triple slash right. The average obt and slugging. What you see on television. Oh hitting three oh seven on base four twenty five oh p s are slugging percentage six sixty six right or whatever it is on on the screen when you see them always one for two tonight they show that triple slash for every hitter so i wanted to look at some guys who finished i i and i in the triple slash but did not win the mvp award that season and it only happened about. I don't know seven or eight times in one time. A ted williams. I guess did it a lot right or one guy i should say. Did it a lot back in the day so starting out numerically. Right in regards to years most recent to most ancient here moving forward it happened in two thousand and nineteen for christian yelich in the milwaukee brewers. There's a bit of a caveat when it comes to the reason why yelich may not have won the mvp award during this season and that is because he had a broken kneecap in september. He ended up finishing second for the award that year. But of course had some absurd stats that season and playing one hundred thirty games. He had a three twenty nine batting average. Four twenty nine on base percentage. Six seventy one. Slugging percentage forty four home runs ninety seven or b. Is he had thirty. Stolen bases eighty walks to one hundred and eighteen strikeouts. He was an all star. Silver slugger and my goodness. He ended the tie he ended in the top. Ten hits and runs in rb is he was fourth in home runs seventh in total bases and my goodness. That's just a fantastic year and it was unfortunate circumstance where he got injured late in the year which ultimately cost him winning that award and since twenty nineteen you have to go all the way back to the year two thousand so for nineteen years. Being i in the triple slash did did equate to winning. Mvp right it didn't happen again there for nineteen years so in two thousand for todd. Helton was the next time that this took place. And these are pre- humidor numbers for chorus field. Helton hit three. Seventy two had a four sixty three on base percentage and a six ninety eight slugging percentage of one point one six to.

I do enjoy talking about these guys and all the great things that they're doing here in the community so actually what i'm gonna do is. I'm going to discuss the national league here in segment number two. I know we talked. Vlad guerrero junior in segment two. But i'll probably push that to segment number three here. As i think this is good quality content and information and these guys deserve a shoutout for what they're doing out there.

Don't get recognized for the work. They do off the field. And that's where i thought about just running through these giving you guys the names on ultimately who was nominated but i figured i'll take the time and discuss what these guys are actually doing in the community because a lot of times people think oh those are dumb jock so or baseball players who aren't giving back or horrible people. Well there's a lot of good guys in the game of baseball. There's a lot of nice individuals out there who are more than willing to give back to the community. Give their time. Give some money. Give their efforts to bettering the community there in or bettering the environment of somebody who who's not as well off as others so it certainly deserves the time for me to go through and list all of these guys and discuss what they're doing in the communities and ultimately give them some props here for one show out of the year to talk a little bit off the field and not go through all the stuff with baseball that's happening but we'll get to that at the tail end of the episode but i just think these guys deserve for their nominations and the reasons why they're nominated to be discussed here on this podcast today.

Puerto rico shortly after takeoff back on new year's eve in one thousand nine hundred seventy to his reputation as a selfless humanitarian became that of legends. And of course. Roberto was an absolute stud on the baseball fields. But he is more so known for his acts of kindness and what he did for others off the field. I mean first off on the field. Clemente was the first player from latin. America inducted into the national baseball hall of fame during his eighteen year career with the pirates. Clemente was a two time world series champion. Twelve time gold glove award winner in right field. Fifteen time all star. He was the nineteen sixty six national league. Mvp and he was also the first latin american player to reach the three thousand hit mark. Because i mean this guy was just an absolute stud looking at his career. His career batting average of three seventeen he had two hundred and forty career home runs. One thousand three hundred five rb is he was just an absolute menace. He won that. Mvp award like. I said in sixty six but he finished third in the voting in sixty seven four in the voting in one thousand nine hundred sixty one fifth in mvp voting in nineteen seventy one so from nineteen sixty through nineteen seventy two. He was an all star for eleven to twelve years. I mean this guy was just an absolute menace out there for the pirates in play in his entire eighteen career. Eighteen year career in pittsburgh absolute joy to watch his high for batting average in nineteen sixty. One was three fifty one. Oh we hit three fifty seven in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven. I was wrong. There was this career high so reverts l. on the field. Obviously an absolute stud but known even more so for what he did off the field. I mean this guy. He dealt with racism back in in his time as he arrived in the major leagues in nineteen fifty. Five only eight years. After jackie robinson became the first black player in the history of american and national leagues and he arrived nine years before president lyndon johnson signed the civil rights act into law. So it's only fitting. That clemente made his debut against robinson in the brooklyn dodgers as they continued racial equality struggles from then on moving forward of course because clemente was afro. Latino of dissent he was subject to the jim. Crow laws notably in fort myers florida where the pirates held spring training. So like the other black players of his eric lamented was not allowed to stay at the same hotel or shale share meals with his teammates at restaurants and yet legalized segregation was foreign. Diclemente because he had grown up in a much more integrated society in puerto rico. He said quote back in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. My mother and father never taught me to hate anyone or to dislike anyone because of their race or color. We never talked about that and quote so clemente. Of course he was big inequality he dealt with racism. Just like jackie robinson but he continued to give back to the community and be a figure a hero. Almost for that of puerto rico and latino descent again just his humanitarian efforts that he gave back to everybody up until his final act. Like i mentioned in nineteen seventy two when that plane went down just after takeoff when he was headed to nicaragua clemente was only thirty. Eight years old at the time of his fatal plane accident so he didn't even live a full life. And my goodness just an absolute shame as one of the best overall humans in the history of the game of baseball his life was cut short but baseball has since named september fifteenth. National roberto clemente day. They have allowed a handful of players to wear the number. Twenty one in honor of roberto clemente. It seems like quite a few more each year are giving the okay to where the twenty one and that's certainly fitting and i certainly appreciate dad watching the phillies tonight. It was andrew mccutchen for the fight and fills rocking the number. Twenty one. but there's also the roberto clemente award that has been given out every year and there is one nominee per ballclub and this year. There were eighteen first time nominees. The roberto clemente award annually recognizes the major league baseball player. Who best represents the game through extraordinary character community involvement philanthropy and positive contributions both on and off the field and because of this it is one of the most prestigious awards across major league baseball and is not directly tied to performance on the field. So this is a big deal to get nominated But obviously an even bigger deal to have to win the award. So september fifteenth roberto clemente day. Also correlates with the first day of hispanic heritage month. It is a nice touch for major league baseball to coincide. Those two events on september fifteenth. So who the nominees across major league baseball. Well we'll start out in the american league east for the blue jays as boba shit. It's his first ever nomination. He was nominated for the work. He's done both in toronto.

And the and the way he played the game, you'd see the highlights of him hitting and throwing guys out from the wall and the outfield wall. Time after time. He was a great talent.

"Those $10,000, which was, you know a ton of money, particularly for a player from Latin America at that time, so They try. They put him up in Montreal, which was that in those years in the early fifties, was the Triple a affiliate for the Dodgers, and that's where Jackie Robinson played in the mid forties. And so Clemente was really raw at that point, but it was clear that He had a ton of talent. They didn't have any rules that the diner didn't have any room for him on the big club, so they put him in Montreal, and they were hoping that his play would not attract Attention so he would be so he wouldn't be eligible so that no one would pick him up in the rule five drops. So his season in 1950 for Montreal was it was okay. It was pretty raw. He only he only hit against left handed pitching at that point that he was being platoon a lot. In the outfield and was frustrated. It was far from home Far Bill. There's a huge difference between Montreal and San Juan, Puerto Rico. In many ways, so What happened was In the winter of 54. He went back and played in the winter leagues in Puerto Rico, and he hit like 38 that year, the on ly player who had a higher batting average that winter. Clement. It was Willie Mays on so so when the rule five draft came along in December of 54, he was picked up by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Ondas, it happens. Pittsburgh Pirates at that point there last place team and they were run by Branch Rickey. The same man who had brought Jackie Robinson is a big leaves with the Dodgers in the forties. So Ricky I struck a blow for integration by signing romantic, and he also stuck it to the Dodgers for forcing him out a few years earlier, And then the rest was history. Clemente instead of Being in the minor leagues with the Dodgers was called up to the Pirates in 1955. And he played it all 1972 and obviously the rest of history. Well, when we look at Roberto Clemente is final numbers. They just fall right off the table. I mean, they're just been outstanding in National League VP a world Siri's most valuable player. 15 times an All Star four time batting champ. This is the one that I always remember him as a 12 time Gold Glove winner and in right field and most likely, probably the best right arm and in the outfield that I've ever seen. And he was just so dramatic, a za player and a defensive side he would go after. I mean, he had good speed. It was a job. There's agility or let go on. Left. Going right was unbelievable. When you look at this career of Roberto Clemente, of course, 3000 hits Add that in there when you look at this guy and you look at his career and you look at him as a Hall of Famer what stands out to you immediately. Well, it is You know he was the prototype 52 player. I mean, he wasn't necessarily a power hitter, but he could hit for power. Hit for average. You ran the bases really? Well, he was as you said, 12, times old lover. Get an unbelievable arm that runners in the National League new not to challenge on He was a fierce competitors on so hee hee wass. I think the reason that he's so revered in Latin America is he was the first generation of Latin American players who really broke through in a big way on did happen in the fifties now. People don't know this. But there are Latin American players who played before Jackie Robinson going back to the beginning of the 20th century. But it really wasn't Until Clemente implemented era that that that these guys began to be reached superstar level, and so Clemente was the first real Superstar from Latin America. Who said one M V. P was a perennial All Star and really had the respect of the great players of that era. Hank Aaron, Willie Mays. All those guys Really revered Clemente for what he did on the field, and then he's also remember greatly for what he did off the field. We're speaking to Marcus Britain from the Sacramento Bee this morning, talking about Roberto Clemente and one of the things he was, he was a humanitarian. He really worried about the Latin player in the African American player. And he really brought that to the point of even talking to the pirates and saying, Hey, we need to fix this. One of the stories I read were the players of color couldn't come off of the bus that the white athlete had to bring their food to them and and different aspects that he was getting so upset about. And he wanted to make the change. He stood up and really made the pirates do this. Tell me your thoughts on those things Well, so that's exactly right. Because, you know, I wrote a book about the history of Latin players on DH. And in the early nineties, when I was doing my reporting for it, I talked to a lot of the players of that era and most guys from Latin America then They just wanted. They wanted to establish themselves in the big leagues and So it was a tough time to be a dark skinned person in the states, particularly if you were playing In the minor leagues in the South. And and so Clemente was was, uh, one of the first guys to really speak out about it. And then when he achieved success In the big leagues. He, um, he used his stature. To speak out and talk frankly about the conditions that AA lot of his fellow Latin players were having to endure, making their way up to the big leagues, and he challenged The media at that time about the way that they way that they described the Latin players in the newspapers and the kind of characters that they threw off them. And he He insisted on being treated with respect with the respect that he had earned on the field and was very out, spoken about that during this time, and he also carried deeply about his community. And as we all know, He died. Ah, New Year's Eve. It was on a plane and they were rushing food supplies to Nicaragua. They just had a massive earthquake and you know his body was never recovered on DH in Puerto Rico. That you know that time the day that and he is eyes revered in their statues of him all over the island. I visited the boys town that he started for for kids. They're in San Juan, where they learn how to play baseball and focus on their educations and So his legacy lives on on, and it's only grown over the years. Mark. It's Marty. Laurie wants to jump in. Say hello and talk to you for a second. Marcos. Good morning. How are you? The morning? Good morning. Yeah, I thought a couple of things one. The Pirates always tried to pass Clementi off his Bobby Clemente. Got a text from tug McGraw's brother..
