"They wouldn't be able to get in anyways, be like, I don't know who, you know, it's almost like if you're because you're not gonna be high enough on, you know, because the masters does have their criteria of top 50 and whatever it is. If you're not top 50 in the world, you didn't finish top ten in the FedExCup or whatever because you clearly didn't even play. You didn't win a PGA Tour event the last year because you don't play on the PGA Tour. Then you don't qualify anyway. So it's gonna be fucking tricky. I think that these guys are for now signing up to not ever play on the PGA Tour again and to not play in the masters and potentially the PGA Championship going forward, but I also think, I mean, they're going to file. It sounds like they're going to file Liv's going to file a lawsuit this week. Against PGA Tour. And against, you know, official world golf ranking situation that they're convinced, I think the live is convinced that their players are going to be able to play in the FedExCup playoffs, which I mean, that's gotten so real that that belief that Davis loved the third just came out and said, I was just looking like if the lift golfers are allowed to play on the PGA Tour again, we are going to boycott the president. It's got we're not going to play the president's cup. To the point yeah, he was like, we just want and then if we're forced to throw even allowed to play, by the way, he was like, by the FTC in Washington, he just kind of made these like crazy kind of like claims at it. We're just not going to play the president's call. He said, it was one of the crazy press conferences of all 5. Yeah, it's unbelievable. I mean, that's insane. I mean, how much of the world would burn? If Olivia won the FedEx, and then just won all that money. And then just goes back to live and just continues to win that money. Like, I don't know how the PGA Tour players accept that. This guy's making all the documents. All the dollars we have available for the whole game, the whole sport, like the old Tom Morris sport, he just won it all. He won all the time. Everybody else just has to live out sponsorship dollars. It's like you just can't win anything. Up to this point, I've been a PGA Tour guy, unlike Frankie and not a live guy, but I would say if that happened, I'm rooting for that to happen more than anything. I mean, the chaos from that. Nobody golf would just elevate into the stratosphere. Everybody would. The storyline guy told you great. I felt the same thing when COVID started. I told you guys this, like, a long time ago, like that first week, you're like, wow, businesses are closing. You're like, holy shit. This is fucking different. This is where were you moment? At this point, we haven't gotten to the point where when COVID was like, holy shit, this is gonna be two years. Like, this is the worst thing that's ever happened in our lifetime. People are dying. This is insane. I haven't felt that with Liv yet. It hasn't ruined golf for me yet. I'm still at the point where things are really interesting. I haven't felt affected that it's ruined the game for me yet. So yeah, if there's a lawsuit and we start seeing Roger Clemens type like, if they're at like the hell, like arguing. Rafael palmero, like fucking wagging their finger and that's gonna be fucking insane.

"Thank you very much for that. I had a front row seat for that. How you doing? Because I owned Carmelo Martinez. And when that ball was hit, and I'm watching it go towards bragging. I'm going, oh my God, if that goes over the beds, this is gonna get ugly. And you know, he reached up, he grabbed it and the rest is history, but I'm in the bullpen warming up and you know the bullpens where they were. Yes. They're right next to reveal. So, you know, having to sit there and watch that close and know that loot didn't bring me in to face Carmelo, that that made my heart sake a little bit, but I knew Randy after he got that out. He was fine. Yes. And indeed, they were and we know what happened in the 1990 World Series. I can't wait to see you again down the road soon sometimes soon either in Connecticut or if you come back this way to this neck of the Woods after the Bengals complete their remarkable playoff run. I'm going to tell you right now I'm not going to lie, govern the Bengals right now is something special, dibs. You really appreciate being in the city of Cincinnati, seeing how it's come alive for really, I know they went through great times in the last couple of decades, but didn't want to play off game. This is akin to what you guys went through in 1990. It's very, very similar. It is a special city to win in and I'm very happy for those fans. They've been starving for some football greatness and hopefully they can keep it going. That is rob dibble, the one and only rob devil, you can hear him three to 7 every afternoon, drive time on the rob double show on 97 9 ESPN and Hartford. You know, they have an antenna as he mentioned in southern Massachusetts so you can Springfield, right? You can hear them there. Yes. Greenfield. Just want to make sure I got it right..

"It lacks the belief that this guy was one of the best that ever played. And Roger Clemens real quick. Why it does it diminish. I mean, obviously, this is a Red Sox beat podcast. And Roger Clemens, you can make the case for Pedro Martinez, but Roger Clemens over a longer period of time, the greatest Red Sox picture ever. And I include Babe Ruth and that discussion, I just think that Roger Clemens, what he did in a Red Sox uniform, I don't think we'll ever see again. And remember, it's not just what he's doing the day he pitches the days he doesn't pitch. He's helping the other pitchers. He's talking to them and you're going over line ups. You know, he's helping the catchers call games. You know, there's so many little things that can be missed. That's what baseball is. Baseball is sharing of information. I used to always joke about it. It's like, you know, when you see a hitter come back from the play, he's like a little ant. He goes over there in tennis meat. You know, what's this guy throwing? You know, they tell each other little tidbits of information. So roger was a living encyclopedia while he played. So he was helping all the other pictures on the staff, helping the catchers, helping the defenders, you know, so roger is not just pitching, you know, roger is a player coach. And so from the time he was young to time he developed and established himself in Toronto developed a fork ball became one of the most dominant pitchers again, one another side young in Houston, I think he was 40 or 41, you know, no amount of drug taking is going to make you that special. I don't care what anybody says. There's a lot of football players in their Hall of Fame that you steroids throughout their careers. I liken it more to, you know, how am I going to get on the field? How do I get back on the field? So I can do what I'm the best at. And, you know, when I look at a lot of the guys in football that did it, it destroyed their lives personally. So many guys have died early, wrestlers that have died early. These guys, they gave up the unknown for the love of the game. Not some of it was greed, some of it was other stuff that I can't speak for them. But watching that guy do his thing for 24 years, the day he said he was not going to play anymore. I was sad because I respected how well he approached his job and how well he did his job. All right, our day smash factory dot.

"Put something next to it, say, hey, listen, from this date to this date, believe to have done this. That's tough, that's up to the Hall of Fame. That's their museum. You know, the writers are just the people that are supposed to be promoting the Hall of Fame. They're not supposed to be keeping people out of the Hall of Fame. That's the problem I have with the vote today. It needs to be changed. Baseball didn't lose today, the great bands did, not having a generation and not having generational players like Clemens and bonds in cooperstown is a joke, said and tweeted one rob devil yesterday afternoon after the news that in your smiling and laughing and hope I did it justice reading it after the news that Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens on their tenth shot at the Hall of Fame did not get in. Dibs, that's why have you on? Because let me stop you Mike. Let me stop you. Go ahead. So all of those memories that my favorite thing when I go back to Cincinnati is when someone says, you made these memories for me in my family. That is the best compliment that I've ever gotten. So all of the memories that help build ESPN and Fox and TBS and everybody else at MLB dot com. All of the memories, all of the history that was made during whatever dates or whatever you're just going to try to make it seem like it didn't happen. And that's what I mean by that tweet. It's not just clemons and bonds. I mean, those are the guys the top tier Hall of Fame guys that to me, it's not shocking that they're not getting in, but there's a lot of other guys. Raphael palmero look at his statistics. Unbelievably unquestionably one of the greatest hitters I ever had to face. Not in the Hall of Fame. Many Ramirez to me. Best right handed hitter for 20 years that ever played this game, not in the Hall of Fame, not even close. Got less percentage of votes than a rod. So that, to me, it's far more deep than just a couple of guys. There's a lot of guys that were in this Mitchell report that were in the balco book, the game of shadows that were in Jose canseco's book. There's a lot of these guys that were never tested positive and certainly were told it was okay while they were playing that to me that that bothers me the most. You know, to not have them in there to explain the history from 19 85 to 2015, to me, I mean, you know, that's the part of history you can't erase. You faced Barry Bonds obviously, and you faced him in the 1990 national league championship series when you were MVP. What made him unlike any hitter you've ever faced? First of all, bat speed, best basket I've ever faced, you know, and whether it was Tony Gwynn or George Brad or anybody like that. They had amazing eyesight, I think and hand eye coordination..

"And I know this, it's not actually connected to Major League Baseball. No, it's not. And that's why when I glad you brought this up because when people say that he's banned from Major League Baseball, well, that has nothing to do with a national baseball Hall of Fame that's not officially connected with Major League Baseball, putting him in their hall has nothing to do with it whatsoever. Again, comes down to a ridiculous archaic, if I can say arcane, morality clause. And if you want to tell the story of baseball, professional baseball, which obviously Major League Baseball is maybe 95% of that, what have you. Then go ahead and include a description of their entire career good and bad and let it be and be done with this stupid hypocritical approach of not allowing certain players in and allowing other players in when the whole group of them have done something unsavory toward the sport. Let me just bring this up and I know people will be like, well, what does this have to do with the performance and drugs? What if Justin Verlander one day is up for the Hall of Fame? Are we going to bring up 2017 what they did with the Astros? Because that's where the egregious that's ever hit this game. Yet their World Series stands. They enjoy wearing these rings around a lot of them are really arrogant in the way that they talk about it. Like we did nothing wrong. So I kind of correlate that to some of these performance enhancing drug guys. They're fine. The records are still standing, which infuriates me. You know, you had a commissioner that could have balanced the book, so to speak. And didn't. And at the same time, now you're going to have Justin Verlander up for the Hall of Fame, one of his greatest years traded in the middle of that year. If they don't get Verlander, they don't win that championship. I truly believe that. And so now he's going to be he's going to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, yet they probably won't even bring that up. They'll be like, just like, you know what? To me, you can't throw history under the rug. You can't hide it. And, you know, having played in the era of and it's not just the steroids. It's not just the aged the amphetamines were worse. Worse. Trust me when I say this. And to make it seem like that didn't even happen. That to me just shows you the people don't know what they're talking about. So if you want the complete history, all of the and the amphetamines go back to the 40s and 50s. Absolutely. Even Hank Aaron acknowledged this when he was kind of rust his soul when he was alive. He acknowledged the fact that everybody was doing them. Yeah. And so for guys to be more focused, more alert, being able to run faster and work out and do whatever they're doing, you know, the use of a drug, you know, to me, it's like, just stop. Like, you just said, you know, stop put the morality, put the right people in there that belong in there because it still is a very difficult Hall of Fame to get into. You know, I'm still bitter about Ron Santo. He was putting posthumously. Buck O'Neal put in posthumously. There's a bunch of other guys that deserve to be in the whole thing. Listen, we haven't talked about mania Ramirez yet. We haven't talked about Gary Sheffield, Jimmy Ron and a rod shilling, all these guys belong to be in the Hall of Fame, but if you want to.

"Afternoon drive. It's Hartford and New Haven, Connecticut and the signal comes out of Springfield, so people in southern Massachusetts can hear the show as well. Awesome. All right, let's get to the less savory part of this podcast. The ramp part. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens belong in the Hall of Fame. To me, if you want to solve this ridiculousness of the morality clause, which I thought Jason stark had a great point, you know, baseball writers don't serve as great morality police. I'm paraphrasing, but that's what he wrote this week. Of the athletic. And I think he's dead on. The way you solve this in my estimation. As a professional baseball writers of America writer, way you solve it is by letting them in, voting them in on their merits, and then on their plaque, indicating what pretenses they were voted in under what happened in their career, tell the whole story on their plaque and let people judge for themselves. What kind of character they had, good, bad, and indifferent. What do you think? Well, I mean there's this it's so deep a discussion. But, you know, part of seeing bud ceiling in the Hall of Fame, Joe Torrey Bobby Cox Sony la Russa who managed guys that you steroids or performance enhancing drugs. I talked about this on my show yesterday. They didn't outlaw amphetamines Mike till 2008. Performs enhancing drugs to me amphetamines were far more rampant than steroids. And I played in the era. Yes. And I know you said this before. Right. Yeah. To have a commissioner in the Hall of Fame and these managers in the Hall of Fame that all benefited from these players is hypocritical. My wife and I had this discussion because she's a huge Red Sox fan and she grew up watching the era that I played in. She made a great point..

"But what are your feelings on Pete Rose and whether or not he should be or not included in the Hall of Fame. Well, uh, the thing I love Pete, with very bonds and Roger Clemens different reasons, but the same thing in very in Roger's case, um, you can throw Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa in there is well Um, whether you have the concrete evidence, there's enough empirical evidence that they did something against the game. You know they did something to gain an advantage in the game. And you should pay the penalty for that if Pete had just bet on baseball As Joe citizen, and especially in light of all the betting we can do now, I probably would say teach should be in. But the fact that Pete was betting while serving as the manager of the Reds. I think that has to exclude him because you just can't have somebody inside the game with the ability, perhaps to manipulate the outcome. Being allowed to gamble. Yeah, it's it's a tough one. I was told by Ah long time baseball. Uh, guy, uh, that that is still writing for baseball. He thinks Pete Rose will Get eventually inducted into the Hall of Fame, but it will be posthumously. Yeah, I've heard I've heard the same thing. And I think that's kind of one of the things that you know in that little bit of, uh, acrimony between the baseball writers and now the Veterans Committee and Pete That, um, you know whether it's petty or not, Yeah, they'll put him in because his numbers obviously deserve its inclusion. Same with bonds. But and Clemens, for that matter, too, But But I don't think they're going to put them in while they could quote. Enjoy it, Unquote if you will. Yep. Jack. Thanks for the time. I look forward T hear you, Mike together coming up here quickly, but in the meantime, enjoy it and we'll talk soon. Sounds great day. Thank you. All right. Michael's later. Yeah, we'll see you soon.

"And I get it. It is a special place, but how protective some of these writers are in some of these voters are and how it needs to be a standard more of just on the field. You have to be a good guy. Or you had to do things the clean way that I don't get. I'm not saying you should look at Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens. Maybe the same way. You look at a Babe Ruth. Or maybe the same way you look at a Hank Aaron or you look at a Sandy Koufax or Nolan Ryan. Whoever it may be. We know that Barry Bonds cheated. We know that Roger Clemens cheated. But what's the goal of the Hall of Fame? The goal. The Hall of Fame, in my opinion is to put the greatest players of all time in the Hall of Fame. And I can't tell the story of baseball without Roger Clemens. And without Barry Bonds, I'm not saying you gotta celebrate them. I'm not saying you gotta love them. I'm not saying that you have to be happy that they're in the Hall of fame. But it is without a doubt in my mind that they should be Hall of Famers. We're talking about a guy. And Roger Corman's clean or not, and we know he wasn't clean, had seven Cy Young awards. He won the world serious twice. He won the Triple Crown twice. He led the M O B and wins four tons. He went to the All Star Game 11 Tons. Barry Bonds, 17 and 11 VPs was a 14 time All Star. But the NL in home runs twice batting champion twice. There's still two the all time great players I've ever seen. Now, you could say Zack. They didn't do it clean. Absolutely. They didn't do it clean for their entire career. They did not do it the right way to tell that story. That's part of the story, but to admit them from the Hall of Fame, I just I'm not on board with it. Can't get behind keeping these guys out of the whole thing. Because if you ask me a 15 20 years from now It was some of the greatest baseball players that you've ever seen, even with 15 20 more years going. Is anyone gonna pass? We're not too many people are gonna pass what Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens did so baseball for a while. I had no problem with what was going on. So now we're going to just pretend At this era didn't exist, and we're gonna human erase history. That I'm not on board with. Put him in, tell their story. Tell their history. I hate though the process of the Hall of Fame and I think the vote should be more diversified. I really I think you should be diversified. Let's get it out of the hands of just writers. They could continue to have the majority the vote, but let's open this up to guys that are living in the Hall of Fame. Let's open this up. Also the team broadcasters, you're telling me Vince Scully? Doesn't get a vote. Come on. And even events. Scully may vote for a Dodger, too. That shouldn't be in. That's not going to get that guy in over the top. What the agenda is definitely come into effect here. Because someone doesn't like a guy because someone didn't talk to him. Or you have voters that think they're a whole lot more important than than they are. And they have to play morale, police and all because this guy cheated. We can't put him in. Because this guy Says ridiculous things. I'm not excusing what Curt Schilling said. I'll be abundantly clear on that for the 19 time when I brought this up in the segment, but because he had Just crazy things that he said an awful things that he said. Oh, you know, we can't put him the whole thing. It doesn't take away. In my opinion from the stats, you may think of Curt Schilling differently. You may think of Barry Bonds differently. You may think of Roger Clemens differently, but still when we talk about their history, we say that all three a great baseball players The waiting has been going on long enough. It's time to put them in. And I don't like how Curt Schilling went about it yesterday. And I don't think they should take him off the ballot continue to go through the process, but the process does need to change. This is not something I've been saying recently. I said this for a while. Said it for a while. Make the minimum 12 some years. It's tough to keep it a 10. I think that's 100%. So if you need to do but something you could consider and also Hall of Fame players get a vote. Team broadcasters get a vote because how many guys have uncovered baseball for a while, they still get votes. Fact they told Dan Lebatard to get out of town when he let the fans vote. On his ballot. His belt was actually pretty damn good. Baseball, too. I understand what you're protective the Hall of Fame, but the standards are too ridiculous. You like Pudge? In one punch Did stakes are its only God knows But we can't put Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens in There's no consistency and I'll be consistent here. Not only should Clemens not only should bonds get in, I put Sosa and I put Maguire and and you know what There's one more to appease all Pete Rose. He rose cheated..

They released their voting results on Tuesday, and there would be no instruments for the first time in the baseball Hall of Fame since 2013 now one guy did vote for those three guys. He is Bob Nightingale does a great job Now is the Hall of Fame Voter, of course, but it's a USA Today. Sports Major League Baseball calmness He is here, thanks to the Goodyear Hotline. Bob. A lot of people did not join you. But Curt Schilling was one that made the most noise saying You know what I got close, But I'm not going to get in. It's because of my political views. And yes, I'm paraphrasing. What are your thoughts on some, not voting him in or void for Curt Schilling because of the political things that he has leaned towards in the last 3 to 4 years. Widely that I just spoke of use, but just you know what a hatred out there? Um you like things, he said. I mean, Maria Rivera, the was his biggest Trump supporter. As any athlete, he was unanimous pick. So it wasn't just, you know, Pope of you just you know, I think, you know, spearing stuff from hatred involved things like that. And he was the only guy in the balance the handle, you know? Added chances here and he shouldn't you should have got it without Twitter of these A slam dunk again in now, you know, he said he doesn't want to be considered in the war. You know, I think he might be done. That last part for people who don't know card, Schilling has said. Remove me from the ballot for next year when you saw that, and he's that close because he probably gets in to Cooperstown next year. If he's on the ballot. What was your reaction? Well, wasn't that surprised in in the sense where And he should have gone in this year and they had over 7% last year. He should have easily got in over. You know, 80%, maybe 85%. So I don't think he gets in, You know, no matter what, Even if you didn't say that. Even if he stays off Twitter next year, So maybe it's a chance. But he is going to double down and keep on using Twitter and everything else. So I don't think he was going to get in. And I really don't I think there's only chance to get in is really stay off social media and the miners will say we'll get you we're gonna put you in any way. How much of that is right wrong. Or maybe it is indifferent. I don't know. But, Freddie Now we're talking about this in a pre show meeting. What is Twitter? What is your political views have to do with how you played the game. It really doesn't mean it's just I think just a hatred involved everything else. Senator supporting your the insurrection that the White House and things like that, But he didn't do that as a player. That's why I voted for him. It wasn't you know Twitter was around. He was doing that stuff You wanted about it and tore up the clubhouse. Dad didn't happen, so that's why he got my vote. Because it's happening in this career of his life. You know what? Whatever it is, he's doing it and then and then affect him as a player, So that's right. Voted for the guy. Bob Nightingale, USA Today Sports Major League Baseball Kanis and also Baseball Hall of Fame voter joining us here in Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio, the ESPN APP and XM Channel 80. Even Curt Schilling put out there on Twitter, saying, I'm being lumped in with two guys who violated the game on paraphrase when it comes to steroids, meaning Barry Bonds and also Roger Clemens, and that's why he said that you should just take my name off the ballot because I'm tired of that guilt by association. He's not the first guy that has gone through something of your guilt by association. Certain virus didn't get along certain players certain players and get on other players. But yet those guys got into the baseball Hall of Fame. Let's say for argument's sake and play along with Bob. If he does get the majority of the vote next year. What is a liar? Kirsten is going to say my bad. I was just kidding. This is a great honor. Oh, I think you would say that. I think people of that gun Oh, my God. If he gets an inductive, the Hall of Famer like the Hall of Fame what's again, said Defection ceremony. I think you were stuck straight to baseball. I think you have been a homo buddy honor. And I still believe the same thing. If he gets in, you know, he'd be humbled by it and everything else, you know, but I think at some point these guys say he really wants in. And then when you said, stay up social media, no controversy. I don't think it's a chance. Otherwise, I think you will say You know what? Since nobody got in this year, my balance crowded bunch of guys put up with 10 guys. Oh, don't take him up about just so they could squeeze somebody else in Bob, you have some hard liners like your old friend Randy Galloway is a mentor. Mind who are not going to vote for, as he calls on the roid guys. Um, you did explain when you talk to some of your fellow All of fame voters that divide when it comes to Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds. I mean, there's so many, you know, so many guys are voters, men and women were just against the whole steroid use. You know, I understand with a common from but how can you not vote for bombs and planning your vote for guys? Were strongly suspected their likeness with strong suspicions. Okay, they're talking about Mike yacht surge of Bagwell or blood. Rodriguez. You know, it's like, why aren't we living in two best guys of that early era? I'm going to the cleaners, players who haven't lent I'm not in so they've always had my ballot. My vote on the ballot, but the data you're eligible the first two days I check off every year. So I think it's a joke. They're not in the Hall of fame. You know why we penalize these guys were letting everybody else in, you know. Are we really going toe? You guys gonna vote for Alex Rodriguez? And in David Ortiz next year is still not both for Bonds and Clemens. It doesn't access to me, by the way, I'm going to miss that. Bob 90, a USA Today Sports Major League baseball comments on Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio and XM Channel 80. That's the whole Hypocrisy with this whole thing, Because let's say you're voted. That was never gonna vote for Barry Bonds. Never gonna vote for Roger Clemens. And in this case, never gonna vote for Curt Schilling. But then what? If that happens, Bob?
