I'm gonna try to explain it. Best i can. Is this like stump in the kronenbourg crash since or know. Why are you looking at me like that. That is i think that is the buffalo bills tailgate. So this this is how it is was explained to me by somebody else. You put a nail or multiple nails partway into a stump. And you try to hammer them in by flipping a hammer in the air catching it by the handle and swinging all in one motion and this is also a drinking game in some way shape tree. That's what i think when. I'm throwing hammers. A lumber field is my first quarter. I am told that. Penn state penn state fans bring their own stumps and look to play this game.

"May well be that there have been more immaculate innings truly thrown than the ones that we have on record In fact the term immaculate inning itself is relatively new with the first reference in the media not really happening until the two thousands. I looked up a Read it discussion on the origin of the term and they settled on probably some blogger in two thousand six. That's a direct quote as the most likely corner of the phrase immaculate inning when kenley jansen through an immaculate inning in twenty seventeen. He didn't even know that that was the thing they had to explain it to me. He said i've been pitching seven or eight years. And i just don't know what that is but now i know and it's awesome. We're also we're also sort of living in the golden era of immaculate innings through the end of the two thousand nine season only sixty two known immaculate innings had ever been thrown which means forty two of the one hundred and four. That i've ever been thrown have happened in just the last decade plus and twenty five of the one hundred and four so about a quarter of them have taken place just since the start of the two thousand seventeen season at the time espionage and seth rosenthal called two thousand seventeen the year of the immaculate inning and that was true there were eight immaculate innings that year which broke the old record of seven which had been set just a few hours earlier in twenty fourteen the record before that was five in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight which didn't even fully included florida. Marlins pitcher hey sue sanchez's near double immaculate inning when he struck out three atlanta braves but on ten pitches in the second inning of a game. And then did the real deal. Three more strikeouts on nine pitches in the following inning so he could have had back to back immaculate innings instead he only had one but twenty nine thousand nine. You could have also called that the year of the immaculate inning because that season also saw eight immaculate innings tying the record sales was the fourth. We've seen twenty twenty one so far but it was made more historic by the fact that it was the third of his career. He also did it twice as part of that barrage of immaculate innings from two thousand nineteen sale join sandy colfax as the only pitcher ever to throw three immaculate innings in a career colfax. Did it for the first time in one thousand nine hundred sixty two. Then he did it again in nineteen sixty three and then he did it again in one thousand nine sixty four so he threw immaculate innings one per year in three straight seasons of course colfax was known as the left arm of god for a reason after that. Nineteen sixty four immaculate inning. He was personally responsible for three of the fifteen or twenty percent of all the immaculate innings had ever been thrown to that point in history and for three of the seven that had happened since nineteen twenty nine because no immaculate innings happen at all between one thousand nine hundred and nine hundred fifty to sail for his part is only responsible for a little bit less than three percent of all the immaculate innings. That have ever happened to date though. Colfax did admittedly have a bit of a head start on him chronologically. Speaking with sale back in the fold the red sox have a much needed extra weapon in their arsenal to try to stave off a late season collapse and make the playoffs but his teammates have to try to be immaculate as well. If you exclude those three starts by sale..

"Okay? You can't immediately come at me with the defense when you had Steve Nash out here but yeah defense would be a little bit of an issue even though he did work his ass off on that end and I think he's a little bit underrated. Even though his athleticism is left for wanting I just thing is the is the beer diet gonna stay over the summer. Are we still drinking all the beer over the summer or is that now? Hey yeah that's another thing. You smokin sings in the locker room at halftime and being around guys who are doing that would not impact him as much and also medical science has advanced so his back injuries would presumably be fixed and he'd have a much more longer career which is wonderful. This is actually now picturing Janas when he came in his physique was more bird like you know when you honestly like seventeen or eighteen kind of more just like random guy off the street physique now. I'm picturing bird on the Jaanus diet of like five years straight up just like muscle editions. Can you picture like two hundred forty five pound Jack? Version of Larry. Bird is just in the gym twelve hours a day. Doing the Lebron. Instagram lives from the gym at six thirty in the morning. Hey guys I'm just racking stuffy singing along to his favorite country songs. Can you picture this version of bird or not? You mean a guy who didn't spend his off seasons instead pathing driveways around French Lick Indiana. Yeah I could him. Jack would just be the best player in the history of basketball without a doubt. It's like no argument there. The I mean the primary reason I had this is just the three point shooting and what I think. He was robbed of being able to do in a narrow where that thing that three point shooting was not like it or not A. I want to say it wasn't acceptable. But it wasn't nearly what it is today. Of course. I mean if you had Larry Bird who is widely regarded as one of the better pure shooters in the history of the sport if he was allowed to take seven eight nine a game. I mean statistically and just his impact in a more spaced out game in the half court given his ability to pass. It's just it's mind blowing what he would be able to accomplish my God. Did you ever play capture the flag when you were kid I did? I love that game so you know when you go across the line all of a sudden you go from your safety zone to the other team side and if they tag you you're done so your stress level goes from like zero to three hundred immediate lane. It's like Oh my God I'm on the other side that's how NBA players in the early. Nineteen eighties treated the three point line if they went behind that three point arc. It's like Oh this is like four and territory. What do we do like? They didn't even know how to react. And I mentioned that. Because I was actually watching your Guy Larry and the Celtics play against Jordan in the In the playoffs the game that Jordan had sixty three and it's fascinating. First of all birds hand was screwed up so wasn't shooting that well but even like the commentators when he did attempt to three pointer it was like the the world was on fire. It's like down three point attempt by Larry Bird Insect. Well Yeah. He's an incredible shooter and he's about to win the three point contest at a few years. Chill-out it's okay. He can take. It may maybe should be taking ten more of these. It would make a lot more sense in this offense running right now so it was just a different time and place and I think a lot of the the great shooters from the eighty s and even like the early in in mid nineties. It would be pretty cool to see like Dan Marley right in an MBA modern MBA. How many how many threes does he get up? Those kinds of guys for sure are awesome. Answers I'm not trying to compare damn morally burke by the way I'm just saying anyone who could shoot the rock for their time period coming to the modern. Mba would be fun to watch. My heart skipped a beat when you started to compare those two but recovered. Don't worry if you ever WanNa title as the boss bench you'd be saying he should be in the hall aright. We got one final question here for Mathis. He writes as a long time listener. I want to express my appreciation gratitude to Michael for doing an absolutely tremendous job on the PODCASTS. I agree Michael. You're young now in it He continues to say it's been a pleasure to listen. It's helping me and many others in providing a welcome diversion in these demanding times that we live in it feels like news and social media are over flooding my mind with constant cove in nineteen news and I feel the need for some positive escapism. So I'm glad you guys are still talking about basketball thank you. We're glad to do a mathis. It's providing the same thing for us. He goes on to say. Here's my question with the rise of platforms like Youtube Net flicks online media and the decline of traditional print media. Hey Mathis come on now. Print media still holding it down. Washington Post Dot com slash sports. He continues. There are a lot of people on the Internet. Who are planning to K- reacting to highlights talking about basketball in general and somebody find are very knowledgeable not everyone but I'd like to know if you to watch have ever watched. Nba youtubers what you think of them. And how a sports coverage has changed for you over the last twenty years whether it's interaction with players speed of providing the newspapers with new material style of writing new requirements for your job etc. So he's got kind of a two part question are you into the NBA. Youtube seen in terms of guys who are breaking down Games on Youtube. And what have you noticed? Are the biggest changes about the job or the industry over last ten or twenty years? I hope I don't offend anyone here but I didn't even know that that was a thing people just I what is what is an MBA youtuber. I maybe I'm showing my age here but then did you. Are you aware of this subculture? You don't subscribe to my channel seriously. We've been podcast together for months and I can't even get a few players on my Youtube Channel I it's a. It's a disparate community. Michael I mean there's like I'm sure you've seen bebop breakdown right. We're he'll do Coach Nick will will kind of RECAP GAMES. Or He'll show you certain to play types You can also get X. knows analysis and there are certain people who almost provide like a level of commentary to game action. Almost as they're playing of course there's other guys who are doing video games. I live streaming video games on there and people watch that I wouldn't necessarily paint it with one particular brush. I just think there's a lot of general MBA content on Youtube. There's other people who will almost do like what your colleague does. Seth Rosenthal where it's like you pick a topic and you just use Youtube to explain it rather than writing the article right so you know. Maybe it's a famous game from the past. Maybe some Quirky thing that happened twenty five years ago and you're just kind of telling the story is you're talking to a camera you know spicing and graphics and video here and there. I take it. You don't care at all so great question from us. Glad I I want to. Yeah real quick. I want to shed a seth for everything. He does also be history. Which is incredible. I didn't even like really conflate the two when I was thinking about NBA and Youtube. Because when I watched youtube it's more like for highlights and just old playoff games and that sort of thing like I don't really go there to hear people's opinions on things That's just me but at school of people do that. Yeah I also am not spinning a ton of time on Youtube for MBA content if people kind of make the transition from Youtube to the more general media or if they're a general media member who winds up putting content onto youtube. I'm more likely to see it. I Guess Mathis I'm locked in pretty much to the circle of news breakers in the NBA leading analysts of NBA coverage from a ridden perspective The major NBA podcasts. I'm certainly consuming those on a regular basis and then if there are video breakdowns or highlight packages that people share on social media particularly twitter. But now also instagram as well like. I'm likely to come across those. I would say that other sources still to me are kind of quote. Unquote periphery. But I realized that there's lots of people who watch on those on those networks and so if you're finding stuff you like like keep keep you on with it to me would just be kind of a lower priority in my overall consumption diet and I would actually encourage people you know once the NBA starts backup is like really think about where you're getting all that stuff from because the number of incredible just pure print writers or guys who are writing stories for digital outlets like the athletic The beat writers that local newspapers etc is excellent the NBA has a very very deep roster. Those kinds of guys. I mean you've got fifty Men and women probably at least who are I would read like an a at their job in terms of providing that stuff and so much of what we're consuming now. It's like the poll quote. They could turned into an instagram graphic. Right or it might be something that gets pulled out onto hoops hype and I think for me. The most rewarding thing has been just kind of especially over the last couple of years. I've been forcing myself. Go back and read the source material right like not necessarily every single game every single game right but if if the local newspaper writer or somebody from the athletic is put together a good feature on a key player. Who's breaking out or a rookie or something like that. Read those and try to be super diligent about it because otherwise You're selling yourself short. And you're just sort of skimming along the surface rather than diving in more deeply And that's really where I find that I learned the most As a consumer I would say that actually has changed to answer his second question from the last ten or twenty years. The proliferation of media is what I noticed to be the biggest difference when I first started in two thousand seven granted I was in a small market but there was hardly anybody in the locker room. And if you look at the Blazers Locker media beat coverage now compared to then it's significantly larger and if you look at the size of the the beat media teams around like the Celtics or the Lakers or now even the clippers. They've just swelled to the point where it's very very difficult to get anything exclusive. It's very difficult you know in some situations for guys to even conduct their post game press conferences. Now some guys have to do a press conference rather than scrum after every single game. So that's one of the very biggest changes and I think in some cases that's been good because it's creating more opportunities for young writers to sneak into the industry and to their name and get themselves into larger outlets and I would actually say probably Michael and myself are both examples of that. I think in some cases it's bad because there are people there who are you know for lack of a better phrase cloud chasing like they're not necessarily trying to become full-time writers they're trying to even be personalities or they're just trying to go viral or whatever else and in some cases. I think that could be a distraction and make the coverage and You know the the end product of those interviews of lower quality or more difficult to to take place so there's pros and cons but those are some of the changes I've seen Michael. You have anything to add. No I mean this is a really fascinating and I think helpful question. It's also really difficult. One to kind of wrap your arms around. I think you did a really good job in answering it and I would agree with a lot of the things that you just said. I mean I've been doing this for less time than you have ben but I've also noticed that locker rooms are a little denser now than they were when I started and that's speaks to all the different outlets that are Correctly and a lot of cases getting press credentials and having opportunities to speak with players and coaches. And ask questions I would say the number one thing for me is just how how it forces you to Or motivate you to think of original and unique ideas because I think a lot of this industry is is steeped in group think unfortunately and so a lot of people are writing the same things on any given day and so if you can find a super unique original idea and you can reported out. I think you are adding to the conversation and sometimes you aren't even adding to the conversation. Sometimes you're just creating your own conversation after the side. That is is worthwhile and worth having so. I don't even know if I answered the question but those are just kind of some of my thoughts about it. I mean to give just to real quick examples like last year. I wrote a story for sports illustrated actually About just how different head coaches across the NBA used their timeouts and timeout strategy? And which ones call the most and which ones call the fewest and I ended up interviewing almost every head coach in the NBA. For that story. And I mean no one was really asking for that but I think it was beneficial For for myself selfishly just learning about it. Because it's something that has always interested me but I hope it was informed readers about why coaches call timeouts when they do and what's going through their head and then another one. That's kind of a lot. Let me put that into context and Mathis is what I'm saying. That is the title the story if you're a hardcore baseball fan or you're a basketball fan. Who who's really trying to learn even more that you should be diving into because there's always going to be the story out there Lebron versus Jordan..
