That's just the third complete game of his career with a guy that came into the game with a record of 89 87. 88 87 before tonight. That's his 89th win career Jari of 4.18, but the fact that it's just third complete game. I think that's it. You're just not expecting him to go this deep into a game. Oh, man, Crafty southpaw mode. Now, what was it? It was it Wade. Miley was this like, three years ago in the playoffs, Right? Like, didn't he start a game? Um Oh, and didn't he started game and they took him out after like, five pictures. Blocky? That was Yeah, yeah. Yeah, they want they took him out because they wanted to start him in Game six or game. Something like our game Seven. I forget like the plan was right, right. We're going to start him and the Dodgers thinking they get their lineup walked the leadoff guy and they pulled him. Yeah, And then he winds up actually pitching the what were they the next game or something like and you know, he didn't even go the five innings right? Because they did it because the Dodgers are loading up their lineup and so okay, we're gonna take him out and then pitch him in Game six. And suddenly now the Dodgers have, you know, run a deficit because you know they don't have the right picture and I remember that happening, like you know, what did he say? Started two games in a row. I don't know anybody's ever done that. Nobody ever started two straight games in a playoff series before. Yeah, I think it was Game five on the road day off Game six at home, and both starts combined. Did not met five innings on tonight. He throws nine a no hitter, huh? On, I want to say the last time. Not that it's gonna happen because we you know, we're in the seventh inning and the game is nothing. 1990. I think you're right. 99. Right. It was Dave Stewart and Fernando Valenzuela, right. Dave Stewart threw a no hitter early and then Fernando Valenzuela final game of the night threw a no hitter rights. We had two no hitters on the same day. Mm. Somethingto watch out for here on Fox Sports Radio and the A's now have the lead over the Rays one to nothing in the seventh inning, so Germania has a no hitter. 73 pitches going to the top of the eighth inning. He will at least have the lead. Keep it right here. We've got everything you need on Fox Sports radio. We could have double no Inter's going on. Are they still really a big deal? If we get double the hitter? Sure are no. Inter. Still real. Yes. There are always gonna be a big deal. We have that coming up next. You finish it game. Nobody pitches a complete gay.

Cleveland Indians suffer wild-card nightmare in 12-3 loss to New York Yankees
"The game last night, Yankees, and Indians and incredible match basis. You had seen Bieber the guy who's been the best pitcher on the planet this. Year versus Garrett Cole the Best Pitcher on the planet last year we thought they were going to be very few runs well, that didn't turn out to be the case, the gigantic right hand hitter leaning out over the plate from the stretch. The pitch is swaying in a high fly ball into right center field Ed's deep racing back to shields at the wall, and that ball is gone homerun Aaron judge and a quick strike for the New York Yankees they jump out in front on Bieber to nothing. Yet Dj Lemay Hugh had singled and then Aaron Judge Rip Day Homerun four pitches into the game. The Yankees at a two old lead on Bieber. Any never recovered this is what happened in the top of the fifth any gleyber Torres at the plate swing a high fly ball into left center field deep on run Naylor back to the wall looking up and that ball is God. In his Outta here it just snuck out off the top of the wall out gleyber Torres with a two run homer. And a Yankees keep slugging away they lead it seven to two. That call from OBI, the Great Obi Dave, O'Brien on ESPN radio the Yankees go on to win twelve to two in game on Garrett Cole was fantastic. He had thirteen strikeouts. No walks. He's a second Yankee pitcher with ten plus strikeouts in the team's first game of the postseason hall of. FAMER. Red. Roughing at ten strikeouts in Game One, the nineteen thirty, two world series against the cubs and with thirteen strikeouts walks Cole also match Tom seaver game one of the Nineteen seventy-three and LCS for the most strikeouts in a postseason appearance without issuing. A. Walk the AKC's four homers in this game tied for the second most in a playoff game. In franchise history, they had five homers in game four of the nineteen twenty eight world series against the cardinals. So when you can match numbers going back to the world series from Nineteen thirty two and nineteen twenty eight says a lot about how much yankees dominated in Game One Garrett Cole talked about his first postseason start with the Yankees. Now there was a lot of fun I mean it was a really complete team day my thought that. The middle innings when. They scored we responded with. Sizeable lead which. I thought was kind of allow them Try Not allow them to get some momentum through news dunes and. We keep on defense become elite runners lean offers off. The bags which was kept a pitch count down and we swap bats really well, and I joined myself so a nice that. You also talked about setting the tone. We need to set the tone for the series and You, know. I'm obviously very painful ambled gable to take the ball in this position So to be able to deliver feels really good and and obviously with my son area thrown felt pretty good too so. Yeah I would say I would say it definitely. was definitely a special night. But especially this year, we allow more baseball to to win so honestly celebrate to get stuff and and And showered off and come back to Marlin through all during the sixty game season Bieber did not allow more than three runs in any starting in this game he allowed seventy talked about his struggles after the game Yes. I felt. Extremely prepared coming into the start just like every other start, the season and. Fell behind first hitter and and that I obviously didn't go as planned. I felt like overall looking back at the outing. Objectively. Just, wasn't as aggressive as I wish I would have been with my ob- speeds of in the zone and maybe some fastballs in and just challenging these guys a little bit more. I felt like I fell behind quite a bit and forced myself into some bad situations and so bad counts, and then you know all that on top of not having my stuff and making mistakes. Amounted to what came out of tonight so No excuses was. It was. Not. The the I start that. We wanted to get out. With and Me personally as well but we got two more games and and cookies go out there and do thing tomorrow and hopefully I'll get the ball back as soon as possible in these three series right away elimination games later today Carlos. Carrasco? Shame. Bieber just referenced the right there cookie versus Masahiro Tanaka
Giants need win, help to reach playoffs after loss to Padres
"There were 7 18 7 wins 18 losses against teams that were over 500. If you look at all the playoff teams there, eight wins 20 losses. How far can these Giants go? If they do get into the playoffs? And what are your thoughts against his three game Dodgers series? The first round if and when they get to l. A on Wednesday? Well, I don't know if anybody would pick the Giants to win that. I don't think it's it just it's just not not a reasonable way to think. I mean, the Dodgers were the best team in baseball there 25 games over 500 there one through nine with power hitters. They've got Kirsch on and bueller lined up. They got a bunch of right handed pitchers, you know, adjust in May and Johnson against the Giants, right handers. Stacks up really kind of comically. One sided, however, Marty, it's baseball, right? I mean, what's the point of serious when the first one, but if they be Kershaw behind behind God's man, I mean, you know, that's that's the great thing. They go in your record book? Look up. 1951 look of 1962. Yeah, and this is a you're going to write it. I hope it's Giants Dodgers. You'll write a great story that you will write an amazing story. About about how these teams have played before and how the Giants were written off before to the very last pitch, and they ended up winning and winning penance by doing it. So my feeling is Bruce. You got a lot of lefties. The Dodgers a lefty oriented. We've seen what Kershaw was done before. It's a baseball game. That's all it is. Anything can happen. Yeah, three runs in the first inning off. Kershaw is like, whoa, what's going on here? And all of a sudden, people say, Gee, we didn't see that coming. Yeah, and it's very I wouldn't say it's unique to baseball. But you know if you get an NFL Matchup kind of the best in the worst. He had a pretty good idea how it's going to come out or an MBA. The Lakers are playing a team that's you know, they can't win a game to save their life. If you had a fair idea, but the baseball and we've seen it so many times. You can just knock you on your own your song on your seat her off your seat. What's What is it? Something like that happens. It's the shock. That's it. Come on the Mets and the Orioles 1969. How about that? Yeah, the miracle Mets. They weren't supposed to get there. They weren't supposed to beat the Braves, then Henry Aaron, and they did. And then next next thing, you know, they win the whole thing. And you know Cleon Jones and Tommy and me and Tom Seaver and all of a sudden the team that have been so unbelievably bad. It's like, Wow, these guys are really good, and it turned out they They were very good for the for the next several years, But that was that was a miraculously kind of thing that you know it goes back to the miracle Braves, you know, back in 1919 14. That's correct, George Stone, the miracle Braves. Yeah. So The history of baseball. It's filled with great stuff like this and completely improbable development. So we will watch with great anticipation.
"seaver" Discussed on The Sports Reporters
"He puts to rest the great lie of Schwartz that your greatness in is measured in how many championships he puts a light to that. He is a mythic legendary baseball figure anyone exactly one world series against the Baltimore Orioles in October of nineteen, sixty nine and some of the pictures you will see today we'll be him in the Canyon of Heroes in the aftermath of that victory and. Good Way to remember Tom Seaver when he was young as any today nuff. Said on all right now listen. I want to start with the second game that we saw last night Robert Okay may find one which was which was gripping and you know even bad sports events can be quite memorable and this one was because Bob we saw we saw four teams try to kick away games last night. Okay. But the big one is is game seven. Robert in the last seven minutes of game seven. A grand total of two points was produced. By. James. Harden. Chris Paul, and Russell Westbrook a layup my harden with three thirty nine left. Let me let me say that again Bob. Russell Westbrook, Gut zipped in the fourth quarter of the biggest game. I don't know what kind what is physical state is okay. Robert from the time. It was three, ninety, nine, ninety, nine with nearly four minutes left. Do you know what? The score was the rest of the way five, two, three, five, three for the Houston Rockets and and? When the best player on the court against door. Okay. It tells you God bless them for the way he played last night. I will wrap this little soliloquy up by saying this the rockets eight beaten the La Lakers I. don't see how no I do say this about the rockets. Okay. Sees that if they had a best of thirty one, I think it would have wound up sixteen fifteen. I mean, that's so. That ended in in this kind of chaos. Is Interesting subplot it wasn't pretty wasn't great basketball wasn't great play basketball but. You. Know it was dramatic Oh my God and come out. Did you qualify call the time out? Did you think he called? Yes. But should it have been recognized well. Yeah I. IT depends on. You know there was so close to the end of the. I. That's one time where we're going to talk about reps I. It's so close Mike? Is Not a right or wrong I thought he did. Yes but I mean it's not. It's not. I'm not hanging anybody on that one though I'm going to hang referees on. The floor over you will get to the other game but Bob. It's been a while since I've seen you know the REC league play we we tried to throw the ball off a hard and I have to say. A couple of things about harden Mr Ryan one it's not like he put to rest any of the thoughts people have about him not being big Game James Okay. That is one but he made a hell of a block when his team needed him to make a hell of a block and he made a couple of other great place. Yeah. He sure data was a great block and then with the acrobatics he have eluded the you attempt. To bomb which was. I'd hope. Ball. Went through his legs. He was artie artfully dodged because if it does go off him out of bouncing and get the ball back there. Okay Yeah. It was a great block and I'm thinking now this morning I'm going over because I've been railing about the stupidity of people continually fouling point shooters in this in this. Tournament and and. And he could he he ran the risk of doing that except that he he was he executed flawlessly. He completely deflected all ball not hint of. And you're right. But other than that I'm thinking the whole fourth quarter. The hardens legacy. You know once again is is GonNa be tarnished yet another I won't say no show a coming up very small in that game and his certainly his contributions one for nine on threes and he makes the big defensive player. Bob. Here's the thing that really surprised because I i. You know we we we are big billy Donovan. Fans. Okay. And and stuff happens on the court and I have to say that the rockets in the last two minutes defended great but Robert, there was one panic. Possession after another for the thunder I, mean that. inbounds play. What did he think was going to happen when he threw the ball to Stephen Adams twenty five feet back to the basket and funny thing is before that mark, Jackson was right when they lined up the first time and couldn't get the ball and bounce all he had to do with Straw the ball towards the basket nobody Adams was between the defense and that basket all he had to do was lob pass and Adams would have dunk the ball and they'd still be playing there were Quite a few examples in the last two nights brain farts on of great. About panicked possessions. Bob The. US How about how about? Well, we're GONNA get Jimmy Butler turnover in a corner among many things that we're gonNA talk about in that game. But yeah. Yeah. Mighty issue show what are they could've they should have done that. But about Bob, listening to the announces last night and and and. All, the stuff they made Chris Paul. He's this is his moment. This is his time when when they made it sound like he was Michael Jordan when and I'll tell you what is big as anything that happened down the stretch. He short armed about a twelve foot jump shot. Made all the difference for his tape remember that yeah. Well, he's Nin- they had adopted him as A. that. was theme and you know he he's been on insists presently association and you know and you know yeah. It was an interesting series was an. Attorney interesting you love or hate him. I know how anybody could be neutral in Iraq it's and it's always hardens around eight bobby. Here's the thing about Paul and again he's he's had bad luck. He said injury problems but look at all the dragons he could have slade last night. Okay. His former team who? Sent Him. They like Russell Westbrook better again and and wait. Can I point out again? Russell Westbrook was over the fourth quarter last night. Okay. So he coulda taken down the rockets he could have changed. His own, the the legend of Chris, Paul who has never quite gotten there. Okay and and he started out fast in the fourth quarter Bob I think two three pointers early in the corner they can't eight points early in the quarter and then down the stretch even though he had the ball of his and he made some bad decisions, he couldn't make a shot and for all of the game seven Chris. Well okay. Where was he down the stretch? Yeah. It's all true. It's all true in this part of the whole package. All ended up both night's. Game. To drama but boy. There was a lot of a lot of head scratching stuff going on. Okay, let's look at. Ryan's good for the stat likes the stat sheets. Okay Harden four fifteen. Wait for it Ryan one for one for nine from three points. and ends up with Seventeen Points Westbrook nine for twenty okay twenty points. Do you know who the high scorers were for the Rockets Covington, and Gordon coming to the. Series, he did have a good series. He did have good series and I actually think as a basketball fan. Ryan the basketball fan in us. It's better that the rockets rather than the thunder move on. Do you not? Agree with that I. Mean I think I don't think the rockets are GonNa win, but I, think it has a chance to be. A more entertaining series and Was I said the rockets are are interesting. As I said, they're there to meet a polarizing I mean I. Don't know how you can be neutral harden I hate watching them place most annoying great talent ever for me but Yeah I guess. So you're right. That it is. That everybody would have preferred I don't want to sound like I'm picking on. Paul. But I kind of have a little bit. Okay. He had. He did have a triple double last night. Okay. Big Game. Game Seven. Chris do you know how many basket- teammate in the game five five baskets? Okay. He made. Five two pointers and he eight, five, ten, he made three three-pointers. No He may five baskets in the game bobby And Again I I don't see them getting united. I don't see them moving closer to a championship and for the Rockets Robert. The Great Sports Question Now. When okay. If not now when and they're going to try to beat the Lakers with small and I don't think they can do it and I don't think they have any aunt Lebron I don't think they have any answer for a day. No I don't think not nuclear. We know answer there. No I think that'll be a five game it's or so and it was fun. It was fun even know. It was game seven. So even if the quality of play, you know there was a lot of clown floppy drama stuff..

It was one of the most remarkable New York baseball events of all time. But people forget he was forty that day he was forty and he had enough arm and guile and. Maybe Jim Palmer is in the conversation with someone who is an intelligent a pitcher seaver was. glomming and Maddox and those guys but no one was ever more. Intelligent about about the craft no. Not at all and also speaking of craft we have to touch upon the fact that he is a model for many pitchers for the the model of the ultimate power pitcher. His his motion, his lower body Dr Dirty right name. Yeah. The the fact that his power came from from his his thighs in his ass and his arm was the last. Link in the whole procedure and it put he put less strain. His mechanics was so perfect as a power pitcher. He put less strain on his arm shoulder and elbow than anybody else and and you know he was like the antithesis of the called the Chris Sale slingshot thing as you see where it's gotten Chris Sale. And? It, and to this day, he's a model and in his time, he was the envy of all these other players who just said, that's the way to do it but I just can't get it done the way he did it just to put them in perspective for our younger. Listeners. On a couple of things, a sixty one career shutouts. Now the world is so different. It's you darling story about by the way he was visited a dot devastated erupting you really quickly he visits Seger's house and he pulls out a drawer and that's the one was sixty one. Baseball's in it. Darling said WHAT ARE THOSE Are Those are the shout sorta shut out sixty, one, shutout I career era to point eight six anything under three is is obviously notable and it all added up to the respect he had an in our fraternity Mike. Voters for the hall of fame that for years and years, he had the highest tally in hundred, ninety eight. He's one of many. Don't get. Don't get me started on that. Could do the whole week on. Ninety eight point eight, four percent outdone eventually by Ken Griffey and course by Marian Rivera anyway. He -specially with special and it was so sad. Obviously, it's always sad when someone you know don't anybody contracts certain. Diseases. Of Dementia but when it's particularly poignant when it's a person of towering intellect and and you know what they were like in their prime. Dean Smith comes to mind, and there's others we can cite and Tom Seaver filler and. He gave us by you know that's the thing stripped of the memories that he gave us, and again, I'm not trying to describe myself. is an intimate friend of my my pal billy madden. His finishing a great book about seaver. He was quite close to him. He did a TV documentary on but I knew I mean there were so many memories came flooding back last night Bobby seaver in front of his locker doing crosswords I don't know if he's still doing he. Times. Said sacks, yeah pen. And the high pitched laugh and Kim throwing out the first pitch. Before the two thousand, thirteen, all star game at at city field. When Matt Harvey started that game and he was going to be the you know the new seaver. We know what's happened to him and when he was done that night and I walked with from the field and took the elevator up and we went back up to the sweet level together. We were just talking about with the moment have been like I said to him. It looked like a strike to me and he laughed that laugh and said, your eyes are as bad as my arm. Okay and and I just asked him what it was like and he said my world. Was the sixty feet six inches between the mound and home plate. Title of the book that in his prime that he was co authored with. How I would pitch to Babe Ruth. The book Yeah. No and he thought about things like that. He was a great thinker. He was so much fun I. Mean it was so much fun when he and Scooter Resume Not Games on television because you saw the fun side of Tom You saw the even the goofy side of Tom and then you know he was supposed was supposed to go out to Napa Valley and live out his day in the vineyard that he started. That he was so proud of and that he loved so much and then we found out afterwards, the people had been starting to see the signs of mental decline as early as two, thousand, Ten and two thousand eleven and I. Frankly you know now that I think back on our conversation at the All star Game I could see them but you know Bob I looked this up last night I don't know why it got caught in my head. Colfax went Brooklyn Kid went to California and became incredibly famous and gifted and all that they're okay. SEAVER grew up in California and came to the other side of the country Colfax left the stage. After the nineteen, Sixty Sixty S. seaver shows up at Shea Stadium in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven season, and right hander left-hander all the geography it was like a torch had been passed because Bob and nobody will ever match I. Don't think those four years the that sat. Okay. But seaver three, hundred eleven wins three Cy Youngs Okay Hall of fame nearly a unanimous first ballot, the sixty one shutouts he pitched in two world series. And I, think he lost he lose game six or seven in seventy three to the as. I, forget what how the rotation fell that year but it but again, and even at the end at the very end in after the eighty six season. He tried one more comeback with the mets. He didn't pitch in a game in one, thousand, nine, hundred seven and just realized that you know he was not going to go out there and look like Mountain Rivera in requiem for heavyweight and. Yeah. It was it was quite a moment last night when we found out, he was passed even though if you knew anything about his physical and mental decline, no-one was shocked onto knows it was no no, not at all, but it's always jarring and. He, he was special I. Mean it was. An and again. Bob. Before we move onto the NBA okay. Let me just say this about. Tom and remind everybody that we are once again quite.

It was ten years after the dodgers and the giants had left Brooklyn and the Polo grounds for California and. For years. I've said he didn't make the pain of that. Go Away For New York baseball fans but seaver was the first guy who made it hurt a little less. Oh, he was a transcended figur- and the thing was that in addition to the prowess on the mound, he was a compelling personality captivated the media with this whitten intelligence all but one cigarette one major. Media person didn't quite get.

Anyway. SEAVER Yeah, he was A. Great, combination of talent and personality and you're right. Obviously I know you're right the mets thing. With people it's just a historical look back to people who weren't around and know what what the mets saga was from from the original Cain anybody here play this game sixty, two to forty and one hundred and twenty mets to the surprising not not anticipate, which is always a great story. Best Stories in sports in terms of teams are when they come out of nowhere or when they come in and they surprise you when you weren't looking for anything and in that certainly. The mets that year 'cause right up until. September. It was all about the cubs and and then met some wind up being the story but seaver hit interesting might as much as we you of course, we always associated him with the mets. It is interesting to note that is only no hitter came with the reds his three hundred game was a six hit complete game for the White Sox and he actually contributed significantly to the eighty six red sox quest but. Always remember, to cement. And they his greatest game was not a no hitter that was the near perfect game against the cubs at Jimmy qualls broke up with a double. In the ninth inning and and again, you cannot properly frame. What he meant at that time, what October of sixty nine men I made, it even became a funny line and God where George Burns says, he doesn't do miracles anymore. He's last miracle was the. Mets and you know and he was part of that. That magical time in in. In New York. Sports Namus jets one and you know come along and seventy the knicks come along and win championships so but.

A young was the most powerful calmest in New York at that time and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, and one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven, Bob. I joy I joined the Daily News and got calm and and I. I didn't want to take an opposite position of Mr Young, but I couldn't believe what he was doing to Tom Sieber McKay, and so. Even though seaver. was was quite open and he was great to talk to, and I wrote columns defending Tom, seaver and young was not just a columnist at that time. He was the nominal sports editor and he called me in and he said the following to me. Okay. He said I'm not going to get into a pissing contest with a member of my own staff and I said Mr Young I call them young I said I have a com-. You have a com- I. Thought I could write. He said, no, that's not the way it's going to work, and then I told Jimmy Breslin would hit said any march me through the city room into the Office of Mike O'Neill, the editor and O.`Neil said He told you that and I said Yeah and O'Neal looked across his desk. So we didn't even have this conversation, but you right whatever the F you want to. Okay and that was the end of that. This is one of the things that. Young wrote about seaver Tom to Wick Spelled A. T. E. W. W. I. Fica to make fun of them is a hounding griping morale breaking clubhouse lawyer poisoning the team. Okay. and. This was essentially the man who had. Built this franchise around anyway, he gets traded to the reds been what still in his prime in what was called the midnight massacre pitched his no hitter. You're right for the reds and Bob. I was at Yankee Stadium in August of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five when seaver in that goofy. White, sox uniform with the stripes, the horizontal stripes on it. Okay.

Of all time top seaver struck out ten batters in a row that is still a major league record and they were the last ten hitters of the game showing how strong he was at the end Greenie I was twelve years old when he pitched the mets to the world championship in nineteen, sixty nine it was absolutely breathtaking to watch a pitcher who threw that hard with that kind of precision and the way he threw that back news to drag against the ground.

"Tom seaver and the miracle mets reminded America that anything can happen in sports by Sean Gregory. Sports fans learn basic lesson at an early age. Almost anything can happen on the field after all the nineteen sixty nine New York mets, the miracle mets won the world series. Hall of Fame Pitcher Tom seaver whose death at age seventy-five following complications from Lewy Body Dementia and cove nineteen announced Wednesday was the unquestioned star of that much remember team seaver was nicknamed the franchise. On the first of his three Cy young awards with the mets in nineteen, sixty nine, the mets were ten games behind the Chicago cubs on August fourteenth. But went thirty eight and eleven the rest of the way after August Fifth Sieber did not lose a game for the rest of the season. The mats and expansion franchise to New York City after its to National League teams, the dodgers and the giants switched coasts were a joke before seaver arrived in nineteen, sixty, seven and one rookie of year honors. Can't anybody here play this game manager Casey Stengel uttered while managing the inaugural sixty, two squad, which finished forty and one twenty. The mets never had a winning record before nineteen, sixty, nine thanks to Tom Terrific. They were honored with ticker tape parade that October. For a generation of Americans seaver and the sixty nine mets showcased. What's possible in sports? Supremely confident and unafraid to speak his mind seaver knew he had sway seaver who grew up in Fresno California and attended the University of Southern California said before the mets faced the Baltimore Orioles in the nineteen sixty nine world series that if the mets won, he was going to buy an ad in a newspaper saying if the mets can win the world series, then we can get out of Vietnam. I think it's perfectly ridiculous what we're doing about the Vietnam situation seaver said it's absurd. On the mound seaver studied has. And the habits of his opponents with the scientists I he famously dragged his right knee on the mound when unleashing a fastball. As seaver fans are well aware wrote sports illustrated when he gets a dirt smudge on the right knee of his pants, it means a sharp. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy against the San Diego padres he struck out ten straight batters in a game. No pitcher has done. So sense the mets reached another improbable world series in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three, the team finished the regular season with just an eighty to seventy nine record but still wants division but lost to the Oakland A.'s in game seven. Seabrook elected another cy young that season and a third in nineteen seventy five. But after a feud with mets management and New York sports columnist. Dick. Young who wrote that zebras wife was jealous of Nolan Ryan's wife since Ryan was making more money seaver demanded a trade and today's struggling sports media environment. The notion of a local journalist running a star out of town seems absurd and nineteen seventy seven seaver was dealt to the Cincinnati reds to other mets players were also moved to other teams. seaver gave a tearful press conference. It was dubbed the midnight massacre. Without seaver, the mets entered a late seventies, early eighties Malays, he returned to the team in Nineteen ninety-three and made a memorable opening day. Start at Shea Stadium after finishing his pregame warmups seaver walked from the bullpen to the dugout as a packed house roared welcoming him home. The. Mets won that day. But finished last again. They failed to protect seaver that off season and a free agent compensation pool thinking no team would take a thirty nine year old the Chicago White Sox selected him shocking and saddening both seaver and the mets. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, five, seaver one has three hundred game and a white SOx uniform at Yankee Stadium no less. It was a cruel twist for mets fans convinced. seaver should have accomplished this milestone in Queens with their team. Losing seaver however opened opportunities for New York's promising young pitchers of that era and nineteen, eighty six the mets won the world series. They haven't won the title sense. Baseball Historian, Bill James Godfather of baseball analytics defined the nineteen seventies as the Tom seaver era in two thousand, nineteen article about pitchers of that time seaver was just that God he's sixth on the all time strikeout list finishing three, thousand, six, hundred, forty strikeouts over his twenty seasons he made more than two hundred hitters for nine straight seasons from nineteen sixty, eight through nineteen seventy six says last full season for the mets before the midnight massacre.

"At number, Twelve Philadelphia Phillies I have them there now seventeen and fifteen on the year. They are two games over five hundred for the first time in a long time. That's exactly true. But it sure feels like it as affiliates fan but they're starting rotation the last two nights going against the The Washington nationals facing Patrick Corbin and Max Scherzer will zack wheeler dealer Aaron Nola when sixteen scoreless innings or fifteen scoreless innings. I think it is. It is just a man. It is fun to watch those two guys at the top the bottom end of the rotation trying to figure things out that Geffen was good arrietta bad Spencer Howard starting to put it together but they made multiple editions in the bullpen. Their entire bullpen has overturned from the worst bullpen in. Baseball, they added four guys via the trade and then you get two guys won via call once coming back from the COVID nineteen list who hasn't played all year. So they're going to have six new guys available in that bullpen, and then a couple of holdovers from last year, and you're going to see upwards of eight guys who weren't getting the baseball for this team in the bullpen in the month of August who now will be in September and they could potentially make a run because if you get those top two again in that rotation, best five, you're getting three starts from wheeler and Nola Yeah I mean I'm I'm looking forward to that I certainly am
"seaver" Discussed on GSMC Baseball Podcast
"Let's do some quick math here. Two ninety divided by thirty six. That's about eight innings a start. That's unbelievable. Who What I can't even imagine somebody average in above six and a half seven when it comes to current baseball being right at eight. Oh my goodness eighteen games finished eighteen complete games three shutouts cy young award than the next year like I said Eleven and eleven three twenty. Well, he got upset. Again that offseason because he came back bounced back and went twenty, two and nine in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five with a two point, three era in two, hundred, eighty innings. So the same amount of starts ten less innings, another cy young and MVP, I finished ninth as well. The highest ever finished in the MVP voting that year was another year on the CY young his third year in the Major Leagues Nine Thousand Nine Hundred Sixty nine Tom Seaver went twenty, five and seven. Where they two to one day and two, hundred, seventy, three innings see was first in the CY young second in the MVP voting. Let's see who finished behind in the MVP that year it was Willie mccovey but by only twenty two points so. Very close finish they're both had eleven first place votes, but mccovey just out outweighed him across the board. Let's see mccovey hit three twenty with forty five homers and one hundred, twenty six. Rbi so reasonable to see how he outlasted Tom Seaver but man what a year for Tom. So let's see that's the most wins in a year twenty, five, twenty, two, twenty, one, twenty, one, and twenty. He does have a career three hundred and eleven victories as he is part of that three hundred wind club that we're not sure anybody will ever get to once again his best e r a year was the year of Nineteen seventy-one as a twenty, six year old he at one point seven six. Era In thirty five games that was the only year under too. But he had fifteen years for an era under three here. Fascinating. All spread out through the late Seventies. There's even one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one for Cincinnati. Here we had two, two, five, four. He was Mr Durable. Average in thirty, five, thirty, six starts per year complete games he had twenty, one in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy one and then there are other years. Nineteen nineteen eighteen eighteen eighteen. There are guys who don't even start eighteen games a year now in today's game in today's rotation, and even if you do, it's thirty. Okay. So you miss half the year at thirty six starts he had a complete game in twenty one of them that's almost two thirds. Twenty, four would be exactly two thirds. So it's it's insane. That's fifty five percent of games. He's finishing anyway nine, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, seven. So call it fifty percent games I mean that's three four years where five six, six years where Tom seaver starting and half the time he's finishing the game I mean that's just unheard of in today's world again, two, hundred, ninety innings twice in his career, nineteen, seventy and nineteen seventy-three then he had a two, eighty, six to. Eighty. So definitely didn't have issues there. strikeout highs. Let's see two, eighty, nine and nineteen seventy one to eighty three in one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy to fifty one to forty, nine to forty three. So four years above to forty very impressive for Tom seaver and just fascinating to Kinda follow his career but he did end up moving on from the new. York mets he played six years in Cincinnati he went seventy five and forty six with a three one eight. So he was definitely just as effective in. Cincinnati. For his time there after he moved on from the New York mets, he was in Cincinnati from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven, through nineteen, eighty two, and then at the age of thirty seventy went back to the New York mets in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty three had a solid year for them then moved on to the Chicago White Sox. Let's see here for a total of three years thirty, three and twenty eight for the White Sox and then five. And seven for the Boston Red Sox one year at the age of forty one only a three point eight, zero era in sixteen starts. So certainly, not embarrassing himself as a forty one year there near twenty in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty six. Oh, my goodness just too impressive impressive stats from Tom, seaver and looking at some of his top moments here. Number one is the imperfect game. He was perfect through eight innings but had his only perfect opportunity. Broke it up in the ninth back in nineteen. Sixty. Nine. Just a bitter disappointment first career. Wall-to-wall dominance let's see his fourth start in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, he struck out nineteen, which was tied for that, and the the record for a single game he was untouchables the game went on, he struck out the last ten batters of the padres that he faced. So clearly when stronger as things things moved along there. Let's see earned his three hundredth win in New York in the Bronx in Nineteen eighty-five he did. So as a member of the White Sox, not the. But it was still in the Bronx. So that's impressive and then let's see. Oh, here's here's a good one. We can wrap up this first segment in kind of communicating Tom seaver throat. This is Tommy lasorda Scouting report for a twenty year old pitcher who six, foot, one, eighty, five by the name of Tom Seaver, his throwing seventy-three with life on his fastball his curves sixty three could improve with right instructions attitudes good. Aggressiveness is good. He is a prospect physical description. Let's see well, built with good actions. So again, this is handwritten from nineteen, sixty five here..

T-Mobile CEO boasts he's got more 5G capacity than rivals Verizon and AT&T
"Today we bring you part two of a three part interview with T. Mobile CEO Mike Seaver for we talk about its progress with five G.. which bit let's talk about five G. topic that's near, and dear to my heart. I WanNa get a sense. Of what the status is of your five year, roll out so far well, we're way of schedule. And and that's impart thanks to your good government, who accidentally gave us an extra year plan this merger? gave us a little extra time, and we've taken advantage of it and come out of the gates. Really running right now we have mid band, five G., using two and a half gigahertz spectrum, running in five of the largest cities in the country. NEW YORK LA CHICAGO HOUSTON. Philadelphia I mean that's that's fantastic. In just one hundred days were up and running, and the speed were seeing average speeds. When you've got both low and mid band in place of north of three hundred megabits per second ten times faster than four G. L. T. already in the first moments of this five G. Revolution that we're building so now now get this open signal just came out with a report and said that t mobile customers who have five g equipment are getting five G. now twenty three percent of the time. And the percent of time they're getting five G. on horizon. Zero point four percent of the time. And it just shows the difference in our strategies. Verizon's been out breathlessly talking about five G. for over two years while today as we sit here zero four point, four percent of their customers are attaching to it. Whereas it's twenty three percent best in the world as far as we know, at T. mobile more than twice the level of at and T. who a year later is pursuing. What was the standalone t mobile plan essentially at and T. has now doing what standalone t mobile was doing last year, which is rolling out low band and just there a year behind?
T-Mobile CEO on fighting the scourge of robocalls
"Mobile's event was all about fighting scan and robocalls. We've got CEO Mike Seaver to talk about it. Rod Chang, and this is your daily charge. Carrier, events are generally when you attack. The big annoyances are wireless service. So what are you addressing with today's news? We call them pain points and we've done this sixteen times before. Can you believe that and we're taking on today? One of the biggest pain points ever in this industry, which is Robo calls and scams, an unwanted calls and I'll tell you what this this is huge. This is the number one complaint to the FCC Can you believe about eleven? percent of calls on our traffic were blocked by our technology just last week. I mean this massive fifty. Eight Billion Robo calls were placed last year in two thousand nineteen. That's eighteen hundred. A second and people are being robbed. robbed the these are crimes. They're being talked out of their money. Ten billion dollars estimated lost last year from this and it's getting worse. I mean this is just awful, but this is the way criminals are. They're preying on people during this pandemic because we've got fears, people are losing jobs. They're looking for jobs. They're interested in their stimulus checks and other things and criminals are preying on all that, and so it's gone up and up and up through the pandemic, and it just has to stop, so we're launching this major initiative today that we hope like the rest of our own carrier moves in the past, the rest of the industry follow suit, and we can really make progress against. Essentially these criminal elements that want to steal from tens of millions of people, and so let's let's dive into it Scam Shield. What is it? What? What are some of these other programs that you are offering today? Well, it's a comprehensive left to right solution. Because one of the things we've learned is that it's this issue is too big and too complicated to solve with any one thing. At the centerpiece of it is scam, idea and scam block our breakthrough technologies that are network driven. Hey, I driven to identify calls and block them, and we're making them better already just in the last three years. We've blocked. We've blocked or identified a scam, likely twenty five billion calls, and so we've got a head start on this, but the thing about it is. This has gotta be. Be Thrust into the public consciousness and people need to start participating in order for us to take it to the next level. You ever get those calls those scams, and then you go into your phone and you block them on your phone. The truth is that doesn't do much good now with the Scam Shield. You'll be able to go into our APP and with one touch block. Block that call or essentially report it to us, because it's not just the ten digits they called with. Because as you know, they randomized those they call with new numbers every time that tells us to investigate the source of that call, and so with the feedback loop from tens of millions of customers using scam shield, our AI driven network technologies will get better and better and better. Better at identifying and blocking these calls for you and already we're thirty percent better than anybody else in the industry. So this is just taking it all to the next level, so let me let me stop you there just just to get some clarification because I know some of the stuff the other carries off horizon. You know. Todd touted the fact that they've stopped six billion calls. Fundamentally you all use a similar system that's one that's mandated by the FCC to be rolled out by the end of next year or sometime next year. So what is different about this? In what what? What is new exactly in terms of some of these I know some of these services like the caller ID feature had been offered in the past. So what is new? What is different from the rest of the industry? Well, let's first talk about scam. ID and scan block. What's different is that ours is network based, and it's for everyone on the network literally. Literally speaking, and so it doesn't rely on a certain rate plan or or APP or having something installed or paying for a feature, which is exactly what verizon offers which is seven dollars and ninety nine cents. A month seven nine hundred dollars a year just about in order on their most popular plans in order to get the best levels of protection. Protection which aren't as as much as we're offering today for free, and and honestly as an industry. We need to do better than that. We you know this is. This is an issue that the carriers are helping to bring to customers. I mean their own networks are bringing you these scams and yet they're profiting from technology. That might be proposed to stop their. Their own technology for bringing you these scams that's crazy and so part of what we do with on carrier moves as we call out industry practices, sometimes practices that we've participated in the past and said look, this is a pain point, and it's gotTa Stop So these technologies at T. mobile or not just better because they're network based and don't rely on Hap. But they're free, and we're not going to charge them. Including as you mentioned caller ID, which is now free, t mobile. And as you mentioned being made better, that industry standard technology talked about stir shaken is basically a pool database of being able to see not only the name of a caller which is important if you have caller ID, which is free now, but that it's a verified mobile user and not a call center, or a robot calling you, and that's really important information for you in order to know, you can safely answer the phone.

Producer Shima Oliaee on Making Dolly Partons America
"Hello and welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discussed their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury today? I speak with Shima Oli. Who together with Radio Lab Founder Jad Abu Murad produced the award winning show Dolly Parton America. And when I say award-winning, it's kind of personal for me. You see Dolly Parton. America beat out the show. You're listening to right now for the title of Discover Pods Best New podcast of two thousand nineteen. I guess I should also mention that there show just won a peabody award, and sadly inside podcasting wasn't in the running for that one. Regardless the fact that podcast I produced was in the running with a show about Dolly. Parton will always put a smile on my face when I was nine I idolized. Does I spent hours staring at her glossy album covers imagining what it would be like to be glamorous singer. And while that dream come true, it was still an incredible thrill for me to talk to Shema about this show. In case you haven't listened to the series yet. I want to play you a clip. This is from an episode called dixie disappearance in which Jad and she might take a look at some of the contradictions behind Dolly's iconic, persona. The episode centers around a wildly popular tourist event called Don. DIXIE STAMPEDE! It's a Rodeo style dinner theater, in which the civil war is acted out as quote, friendly competition. The word slavery isn't mentioned at any point during the show. In this club Shema and One through the experience of attending the event. Okay so basically! Warn you walk into the, arena. It's huge I wouldn't say it's a football field I would say it's like an Olympic size pool like with arena seats all around. It's like going to the Rodeo. Basically. It's like going to the Rodeo. It's like a ton of der- in the center of this massive oval. How many seats wasn't again? It was one thousand. Dolly Parton. And the whole conceit of this situation. Besides eating a tremendous amount of food, I mean a full chicken and pork line and some soup that has a lot of cream and a biscuit. It was a lot of food decides that. Blue quickly. find out your competition a friendly competition between neighbors. Five folks. Are. For. The whole arena is split in half on one side. You've got the north wind on the other side. And, the announcer who rides in on this horse on his steed. They just. He encourages each side to jeer at the other. Side fireworks. He asked you to kind of jeer at them. And then he goes to the South side and he tells us outside. Northern. Third. Foul smelling. Slobber all gas. Good here, way out of a wet paper bag there. Before we get started. You may hear a few names that you don't recognize. There's Aisha Harris who wrote a critical profile of the stampede after which Dolly removed the word Dixie from the events name. By the way we have put a link to that story in our show notes for this episode. There is also Dolly's nephew. Brian seaver as a kid Brian was talented break dancer, who sometimes performed onstage with Dolly he gives Shima and Jad a tour of Dolly's child home. In Tennessee's smokey mountains, Sarah's marsh is list. Who wrote a book about Dolly? Parton and University of Tennessee, Professor Lynn Sakho taught a class called Dolly Parton America, which is where the series got its name. Okay, let's jump into the interview. We kick things off with Shima revealing how she and Jad prepared for an introductory conversation with Dolly Parton. He comes up to me. This is this is actually kind of fun. He comes up to me. He has a book he like goes into the cabinet behind. My desk gets out a piece of yellow paper painted around up a tape. Sit around the outside of the book and he's like this top secret, but I needed to read this and then. I, need you to prepare me for a conversation with the person now as you know, I've already been researching and doing other things for his talk and other and other ideas that we're kind of cooking up for other series, and so he tells me it's Dolly, and you know so I read. This book is covered in yellow fluorescent paper. Which I think was unnecessary I don't. Don't think anyone cares so I read it I. Write all the questions, and are you writing questions like? Are you knowing okay? We're GONNA do this. Do you have any premise for the show yet? We're like what kinds of questions are you writing down? Just questions pop into your head as you're reading it or this was a very yeah. This is a very moment so this. This is just the introductory conversation. So I also think we just needed to have an introductory conversation you know before you even touch certain things and we were both green, which is the beauty of kind of a jazz reporting is? He's okay with like not knowing anything when he begins which I think. adds to kind of the journey. You go on when you start telling. Telling the story, so the listener is going on the same ride you on which is very, I think emotionally fulfilling so we didn't really know when we started we. We knew enough basics and I brought to him everything I found really interesting. The passages I had compelled questions. We go way went over them edited and he went to interview Dolly and he comes back. I listened to the tape. And you hear this in the third episode of the series where she's like even GonNa. Get a question in because ninety minutes goes by. After his first question, and she just does the Dalai magic

"Seven sixty six sixty six. Sad news talk Seaver fraud. Yesterday is just family announced. He was retiring from public life because he's suffering from dementia now, so I'm forty six and to say that I did to send them I saw the primary receiver would not be accurate. I really jumped into baseball probably what I was about nine years old right around one thousand nine hundred eighty one or so, and so that's when I started to get a true sense of him. And how good he was. And he was fantastic. I think it was an eighty one or eighty two for the reds fourteen into something like that. And when he came back to the Mets and eighty three I was beyond excited. I was very, and I know everybody was obviously after the disastrous trade stupid is that was back in seventy seven with the reds. Listen, I knew plenty about Pat Zachary, but I didn't know about duck fled. But I didn't know enough about Seaver is met from before that as a kid, but knew that he was obviously one of the greats in areas he's coming back. Now his time that year Mets were just starting to come around. Traded for teeth midseason. They got brought strawberry up that year rule nine and fourteen but he had a three five, but a couple of things I do remember is that beginning of that year that the first half of that season. He was still a sharpest could be and what really is remarkable about how he was able to be affective as he was was the leg drive and his legs were like tree trunks absolute tree trunks. And that's where he got all his power from to throw the ball ninety five ninety six miles an hour. And throwing it up in the Zona. Never forget. I remember Keith. I think when he was still at the car does not mistaken was Sears three thousand strikeout and a fastball up at his is that I just remember Kif waving at kinda. Shaking his head to walking away. Like, how do you even remotely try to hit that pitch show? That's one thing. I remember it wasn't. He was decent in Eighty-three was prime. But he's still knew how to pitch and he was still pretty good. Sieber was not easy. It was not an easy guy. A little bit on the difficult front with fan sometimes with with people in general because he knew he was Tom Seaver. And he knew how good he was. And he understood that and but he didn't try to like, I wouldn't use the word. He wasn't a jerk or anything like that. He was you interviewed him though. Right. I did once he was he was. He just had that edgy about him. But you could tell it was the edge of being Tom Seaver because that's what he had to pitch with. That was his mentality of having to pitch with that edge of I am better than you. And I'm gonna shove this clear up your keys dry like it was an F you every time he went on to the mound and had an amazing amazing edge, but did go and interview one time in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight ish ninety nine whatever year it was did Nolan. Ryan got an a hall of fame because I had a friend who's doing some games in Texas for the Rangers. And s we could get some sound bytes for Seaver on Ryan. Right. And I'd heard singing Sieber in interviews, and such an always let you know. He was Tom Seaver, but he spoke so reverentially about Nolan Ryan. It really struck me. And the other thing that struck me as he is one of those guys where you are standing in front of him, and you can't help but say, that's Tom. Yeah. Like, he he's still carried that. Yeah. That presence about him as a broadcaster out to shave for it as a fan. I went to Tom Seaver day in the eighties when they Ritz retired his number, and I just remember it being great because he's behind home plate. He didn't say very much a, Mike. And he said, I don't know any other way to thank you. Then to do what I would naturally do any ran out to the mound. And he took a bow in each direction. I just thought it was it was really cool. I think I still have the poster from Thomson. Yeah. It's funny to be a Mets fan and be my age because I've got nothing no memory of Seaver in the time that I actually like got to know him, quote unquote is a fan as their prod casting, which is is crazy considering just how unbelievable he was. But what I think he's done for the Mets and for the fan base was he to have someone like him who pitched for the Mets and really like establish an identity for the Mets. That was not anyone here. Play this game called them. The franchise call the franchisee will always be the franchise. I think that that is something that even if you didn't get a chance to watch him. You just knew that your team has that history. And that's something I think Mets fans whether you're by eight so you're thirty five in never saw or even if you're twenty-five or young cousins who are thirteen and fourteen you know, I think that you always understand like, hey, I can be proud of the history of my organization because Tom Seaver was the one who started and created this identity for the Mets, and he was someone who who lived it and someone who like really the spirit two of New York, which is, you know, he's not a New Yorker obvious from California. The really like has that that that spirit? And and so you feel attached to him even though you have you have no attachment people. My age are way more tach to like David Wright. And it's it's. It's really sad. And this is the part. I think that his family is one hundred percent doing the right thing. I know a lot of people have you deal with this. You know, people are listening people are us, you know, you deal with this. And it is the better thing for the family to remove someone like that from the public spotlight, and he hasn't been out there to begin with. You know, here's Larry I someone like him who did carry himself cry that kind of pride. Exactly. And I think you always talk about how like athletes die twice because you retire. And then, you know, this is a weird. This is a weird situation. And so I think people who have the memories of Tom Seaver like I think he would want you to have the memory of him with the dirt on his knee bleep you going nine innings only giving up one run or two runs. I mean, he probably should have had another Cy Young award. I think he got hosed one year because like people on the ballot decided to writers decided not to turn in ballots because they were protesting Pete Rose being banned from baseball and like he should have won another one. But all that aside his career stands alone. I mean, it's so distinguished, and I'm glad that we'll take our memories of him now exceeds married members of him, then it and take them into the future. Not gives fans something to be proud of like you said you talk about somebody who before king Griffey before. Mariano Rivera had the highest percentage of votes that sold you rather. You liked his attitude or not you'll the respect daddy. Daddy, garner date. My grandmother's been dealt with dementia for probably about five or six years. It's tough because it's good days and his bad days and days when she know who I am in today's she doesn't now I remember being in Baltimore and being around John Mackey and him being out in the public guide. You know, that was his wife decision to have him up there. But it was kind of sad to see. It was a real real live type of reality. Check of sometimes with the consequences can be of plants such violent game. And my grandmother. She never played a sport. This is just something that we really haven't figured out. You know, rather is dementia. Alzheimer's, whatever you wanna call it is this a difficult thing to deal with and we're still trying to figure it out. But this is something that everybody can really you can really understand because it affects so many different families, and so many different people within. I think is good because he just wants to be at his vineyard. And that's one thing. Sometimes you hold on a certain memories and he wanted to Gartner's his vendor. And I think that's a great thing. So I feel all the people that his wife trust and family. Trust can come to him. Think about this for a second just to really define his greatness. Talking about bitch and nine innings complete games. Tom Seaver for the first eleven years of his career. Was in double figures in complete games every year. I mean, he nine. Seven times he threw more than two hundred and seventy innings. I mean, that's ridiculous ridiculous. And look we all know now's a lot different and never gonna get near that. But even then that's workhorse, and the other thing I will say as as a as a young kid growing up rushing home that first day that opening day and Eighty-three when he came back because. And I just went back and looked at the box score. And remembered this it was Seaver and Carlton Steve Carlton for the Phillies at shea Mets won the game to nothing. Pete Rose was playing first base for the Phillies at that point. And of course, Phillies went on that year and had a terrific season. But that was that Eighty-three season was kind of the start the other thing that was not right. That was tough. I just remember thinking God. And you see that. On the Red Sox in eighty six. I know he wasn't on the postseason roster is injured. I. But but he was he was there and game six of before they come back to the dugout and their Seaver and Clements next to each other. You don't want to see the Mets lose the World Series with Tom Seaver celebrating. With the Red Sox anyway, eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six let's get a couple of calls in on it. Real quick. Stephen Harrington park is up next on the fan. What's going on? Great. Are you guys are great? I gotta tell you. I listen to you every day you make my drive on the salesman. I drive all day. And I listen to all three of you. Appreciate that. I just wanted to say one thing I feel bad and him. I know what it's all about. But. He was he was two hundred percent. What you said he could not be the nicest person at time. It could be growing later if he could definitely be gruff. I had an incident with him, and I was very respectful of them. I took my ten year old at the time. This is twenty years ago to a met game. And you remember the diamond club. Yep. Yep. To go eat, and as we were getting on the elevator. They had his uniform trained on the wall number forty one. And my son who is nine at the time turns who was that. That was Tom Seaver shoot a form. Probably one of the greatest pitchers that ever pitched in the game. And I turn around and who's standing there, but Tom Seaver, and I called them. And I said, I think it's the game in July. They pitch perfect game. And Jimmy equals broke it up. And I couldn't go, and I gave him to a friend. You know, what he said he turned to my nine year old son and said, I hope you grow up not to be stupid as your father. Backward. A little cash that would that's that's funny. He was gruff though. He was he could be gruff. Instance, I don't really think so, but I also feel like that. A guy that needed that that? That's just who he was. And that's how he pitched. I think it was just a little like a different because I know guys can be how they again guys can be like that today. I don't know. I felt like there was something that was more permissive. Alec. You'd have to be a good guy back. Not not that. It wasn't a good guy. He was after social media friendly and perfect cameras athletes. I feel like sometimes have to be perfect all the time. No, it wasn't like that. At that point. I mean, it's it's very different like Thurman Munson wasn't winning any Mr. kinesiology awards. Right. He was a fantastic player. He was so incredibly influential. That's Yankee teams, it's like people. I feel like started talking about personalities of guys much later the seventies and early eighties. I don't think that was such a story. Charles Barkley type years similar. Yeah. Role models supposed to be nice all this stuff. Our expectations of athletes have changed a lot in terms of the personal stuff. Allen Atlantic City quickly out. What's up, buddy? Hey, guys, doing just a fast thing about the Tom Seaver? I actually that that game in nineteen eighty three when he came back. Yeah. I actually work to go there. I was by myself. I'm glad I went. I would hope you guys can look I wish I had a dollar for every time the Tom Seaver pitched against Steve calm. And I bet you if you look this.

"I can't believe I gotta do this two nights in a row. Lease will last night. We had to break. The news came on about twenty minutes before her twenty minutes before we got on the air that extra back had stage four cancer, right? Right. And that was Saturday because as we talked about he was in our living rooms for thirty years, or so, and you know, you still may be so I'm not going to talk past tense the best attitude, right, right? And now just like Noam Laden was just saying in in the top of the hour. News report hall of fame pitcher, Tom Seaver suffering from dementia, not make any more public appearances retiring from public life of just share something on them, real quick. 'cause I you know, this this speaks for itself. And certainly, you know, he's seventy four years old nine hundred sixty nine a long time ago when the Mets won the World Series is remember my grandmother, and I'm young this was like seventy seven right. So six years old just give away my age and the Mets traded Seaver because they couldn't come to terms on a salary. He wasn't really asking for terribly a lot and he pitched them to two World Series of one one one three Cy youngs. Which is a good thing. And I just remember her the biggest Mets fan the world just angry for weeks grandmother, angry at grandma Gallagher huge met fan, and she died right before they want an eighty six to see that. But I mean, Tom Seaver in this town is royalty. And and for this to happen and get this news, you you just hate to hear that. It's just so sad. And it just makes us realize it we're all getting older Tom Seaver suffering from dementia and he's in his seventies. Because look so young, you know, it's it's a crazy thing. So that's that Tom Seaver will not make any more public appearances again suffering from dementia. His family announced today so release moving onto. More breaking news the house just passed a resolution. Regarding hate anti-hate measure, pretty easy to vote for when you think about it gets me too. We're all against Tate passed the measure. It broadly condemns anti-semitism. Yeah. I would think we'd all be against that that other forms of hatred on Thursday. After remarks by Representative Ilan, Omar she's a freshman. First woman congressman woman from don't even know what it's like political correct to say any more from Minnesota. She's like the number two behind Alexandria, Cossio Cortez in terms of people that are getting a lot of press despite being in office for basically, two months this and this kind of bad press. I mean, well, not hey, she's been getting all kind of great press eater. But she's been getting the bad press because of these expressions of intolerance and hate, yes. When you say that, you know, it's all about the Benjamins in regards to Israel. I've a feeling a couple of Jewish folks will take that events. Yes. Right. So it's amazing. And and what this is doing to the Democrats. I it's just incredible that they came into an office in terms of the house Nancy Pelosi. She's a new speaker, and they won forty seats in the midterms and you could call maybe not a Blue Wave, but a mini Blue Wave. Yeah. They have all of them in the world -solutely, this is going badly for them. I don't know how else to put it because there's a power struggle right now and all the energy and all about momentum is behind the AOC side of the party as opposed to Nancy Pelosi who doesn't seem to be able to control though, everything that's happening in terms of like, for instance, like the new green deal how does that get out into the public domain where no one even really bothered to like edited CEOs? He just threw a draft and against the wall. And that was the unwilling to work thing. For example, it Pelosi saw beforehand, right? Exactly. Instead of what you're gonna pay people are willing to work relating to work air travel. We're going to go all high speed rail. We're going to retrofit every building and apartment in the country is gonna cost not billions. On a draft. It should never have gotten out there. And retracted that doesn't make those mistakes. You could disagree with Pelosi from an ideological perspective. Yeah. But that she she's very efficient. That's the only way I can put it. So all those things happen, by the way since we bought it up..
