"That's that's about the toughest question you can ask, because it's posted in every single locker room. Do not gamble on baseball Assumes you walk in Do I think that he ever did anything that would interfere with his team winning a game? No. And do I think that he's got more hits than anybody in baseball. He does so, yes, he should go into Larry. I want to circle back to sort of what led off this discussion. First of all, First of all, I'd also like to say, I'm glad Ted Simmons is going in because I got traded for him so That's right for those that you don't know who don't know, Larry. Very played for the ST Louis Cardinals one year and the Milwaukee Brewers the year before that, and he was traded as part of a six man trade, including 60 Lizcano in a few other guys and in 82. The ST Louis Cardinals played the Milwaukee Brewers. Larry's too formal teams, and every time I ask you, the answer's the same, Larry have they sent to your world serious here yet I'm waiting still way back. Rollie Fingers Ted Simmons and Pete Book of It's in that deal, So there were two all of family. Always glad to see Simba make it Backed analytics. Look, you come from an era You logged 280 innings and 78 you get your team into the seven inning is 17 you eat up innings? Look, I get analytics. I honestly I do I play. I play the game a little bit, and all I'm saying is this is that I think it's a It's a guideline, not an inflexible anchor, and I think the Tampa Bay Rays proved that. I mean, some of the guys today how could they and how could void you? Hers longer? Billy Martin even managed today. And these were successful man who employed some of the same methods. They just didn't live and die by it. Well, it's just that I played for Whitey who used to do with magic markers and a ruler and pieces of paper. What two guys with two computers do today. But it's just different. It's just different. And if you're going to base everything on that and follow that formula, I think you've got to stick to it. I also think that letting results Dictate the decision. Whether it was worthy or not. Isn't really valid because you you don't know the result if they left him in any given up a home runner, too. And that might have happened just as easily. So, Yeah, they lost the game afterwards. But he made the decision based on what he'd been doing all season long. Last one, Larry, we'll let you go on, of course. Larry Sorenson, Former MLB All Star 10 Year. MLB vet joining US Later. What? What did you just make of the Blake Snell trade in general? I mean, obviously, the San Diego Padres to go get Manny Machado last offseason. Ah, couple years ago. Excuse me, they bring up Fernando Totti's He's kind of this breakout star First MLB postseason run in forever this year, and now you add a former Cy Young Award winner toe what is already a potent lineup in pitching staff. I think the Padres and the White Sox in the American League have done some amazing things. They're going to be really exciting teams to watch the Padres getting some depth. They've got a great farm system to. They've got some prospects that they still have a lot of confidence in So they're absolutely club to keep your eye on and big, big off season for them so far. Larry Soerensen 10 years later, Soren Sin Excuse me, 10 year. MLB vet MLB All Star joined us. Of course talk Blake Snell. And of course, the upcoming MLB Baseball Hall of Fame voting process.

He had Noah response to his associations with the squad. Ellen Omar, too late rest of him, his gun grabbing what he wants to do there. Um Is his radical ties his ties to communist China. His business dealings. Martha did a great job with that. Some people are a little frustrated, Martha. We'll get to all that. But she really whipped him up. Is it going to be enough to win the election? I don't know. I don't know. But it did not look good for Mark and he was squirming at the end. He dodged everything. Hey, looked like a well we'll get to that second thing. I think you need that She won, though. By good for me To say that Martha. One is a big deal. She won Second thing that I think you need to know. Is that to us D. This is this is great to USD. The board votes to pass a new hybrid plan. But they vote to delay On voting to start is they have no start date for this new plan, which involves half days for kids. Ah, and the Superintendent Gabriel Trujillo. You ready for this Shocking date? He said we should start this hybrid plan. November 12th. Hey, that's after the election. Who would ever thought that, uh there's no date no date. Teachers don't want to teach you not to USD. Third thing I think you need to know. Is that President Trump So you want there is a there was a story of the Gateway pundit. It's an interview with the A pollster who says and again, you You want to believe the ones that have Biden up 16 points Can you break says that Trump can't be comfortable can't stop. But Florida is comfortably in his possession. Can't let up. Leading in Pennsylvania. Leading in Minnesota, looking like he might take New Hampshire as well. Is that a mini Minnesota in that aspect? Ah, this person as Trump winning electorally and everything else, so we'll see. It's a big deal. You never hear that kind of stuff. So I wanted to give it to you three things I think you need to know. Now again. Um, I I I had Ah, thing to do with my son last night, so I watched the debate a little bit late. Uh, actually caught the 1st 20 minutes and had to do stuff and have dinner and I was shocked in the 1st 20 minutes like right away the first question, boom. I mean, Martha McSally literally turned it around. On Mark Kelly. And you know she was given her directive which was to Ah which which was to make him be color him, paint him as the guy. That's the Communist sympathiser, right? The chai calms sympathizer. That's that's what make him be that way. And Mark Kelly looked like a guy that didn't know how to answer that. You see, That's the thing with the truth. You just don't know how to answer it. You know you there's no spin you could. He never denied. Any of the statements that bed, Martha said about him and his ties to radical groups, the gun grabbing group going out there and supporting and fundraising for the squad. Bernie Sanders supporting him all that stuff. Hey, He never denied any of that. And he looked dazed. It's like when a heavyweight you know what kind of boxing match where you have see fighting going on When you know, one of the one of the fighters gets days and looks days gets punched, and it just kind of looks like they're out of it the entire time. That was Mark Kelly. I did not know Martha had a dinner. People were frustrated because at one point The moderators. Who is this guy? Ted Simon's from Arizona. Arrival rises the PBS of there in Phoenix. This guy is a complete total hit job. I mean, just some dumb questions. Are you proud of the work? With president shall be proud of that he proud of this. You proud of it. What does that have to do with anything right now? It was a total setup. He's trying to just do anything he can to divide the possible Trump supporters for Martha and the never Trumpers for Martha. That's what the goal was. So I mean, the moderator was totally working. For Mark Kelly. Not one question, by the way, because people were saying the moderators. Okay, There's some decent follow up's not one question. About the project Veritas video, You can make it up. It's literally video of a Mark Kelly supporter working on with an organization mission for Arizona to get Kelly elected. That, said Kelly. Mark Kelly is is lying to voters. About his ideas for gun control because he doesn't want to lose Republican and independent voters. Not one. Hey, What do you say about that? Person says you're not. You're not being truthful. You're not coming out forcefully enough. About your views on gun control. Not one question about that. But the dopey guy, Ted Simon's is his name. Ah, hard core lefty that he is. And you know, I don't mind you being a hard core lefty, But I do mind the fact that you you hide behind this idea that you're an objective journalist. When nobody is an objective journalist. It doesn't work that way. You can't be objective. It's impossible. Your gut tells you to believe certain things and and give you the judgment to ask certain questions based on how you feel, so there's no way you could ever be that way. That's it, So it gets a crock. Right? It's a crock. I mean, I'll give you an example of if you missed it the first question. That Ted Simon's asked Ryan keep number 73 really quick and it will get everything is Hey, Mark Kelly lied about what happened or don't Cueto. But this is what Martha was up against. And she didn't like his ex. Pronouncing. Simon's Yeah, uh, Ted's not Ted Simmons, Ted Simon's Ted Simmons with a baseball playing for the Braves. Different guy. Said Simon's with one m. He goes by Ted Simon's. Of course he's an elitist lib jerk 73. Listen to the question. Ah, and it's not an objective question. Here we go. Listen to this senator. The president's recent covert 19 diagnosis calls into question the way the administration in general and the president in particular of handled the Corona virus pandemic he's been recording is purposely downplaying covert, 19 said.

"Derek jeter. Larry Walker will be inducted into the baseball hall of fame. JEETER was one vote. Shy that unanimous selection. Ted Simmons Simmons seriously and former Brad Penny got a vote. No he didn't Brad Penny got a vote horse. I think Ted Sentences in though Ted Simmons and former Players Association leader Marvin Miller also be inducted through the modern era committee. How many committees do they have? I'd put Brad Penny the hall of fame just for the conversation. I had with him before. Pitching against the Yankees in the world series in which his entire staff was telling him quit trying to throw. Oh Ninety eight quit. China's throw ninety eight and then I asked him. What are you going to do? And he's like throw ninety

"The winter meetings have begun there in the middle of it right now. There has been some movement which is good but from a cardinal perspective Great Great Movement because it means Ted Simmons has been elected to baseball's hall of fame. And it looks like the committee got this one right. At least in my opinion you know there were a number of very good candidates for the hall of fame. In fact my you is that all the guys you know that were up Hella. Good case there. That's why there can't fame but realistically I I don't know Jay voters get three or five picks but you know they go through a discussion where they of course look at stats and then the. The members of the committee discussed the merits of the various candidates. And we're talking about people who understand baseball very well. I mean former players like George Brett for example members of the media. And so you know. It isn't something that people took very lightly lightly and this time around tip Simmons who is one vote short of the twelve of sixteen thirty needed. This time got in and of course Marvin Miller the most influential chill the most influential union leader arguably in the history of sports finally got in and that was another one that was overdue. But you know great for cardinals fans to see Timothy. Let's go in the hall of fame and and the interviews. Hopefully everybody went to your site to To See you know he was very very candid about you know what baseball was meant to his career in the hall of fame would mean to him and it's just delightful to see Ted Simmons get in and you can tell how much it means to him. It means so much to him in I thought his response when I asked him. If you don't get in what would it mean to you. And he was very introspective and very respectful of the process. But now that he's in he doesn't have to answer. I answer that question anymore and you could just see in the interviews last twenty four hours. Brian how relieved he is. I mean you see. It's just a a weight lifted off his shoulders and it's like now i. There really is nothing more that I need to do to solidify my baseball life. If you're Ted Simmons and you know it's not a thing that you like to talk about it I'm certainly I don't WanNa Be Incense folks to think I'm insensitive but you know you wanna see guys stand up and get the honor while they're still with us while they appreciate it. Nice felt so bad for Ron fail for example EXAC- basement who unfortunately wasn't voted into the hall of fame until he left us and I just felt cheated so that you know I'm sure wherever ever speech. Ted Simmons is GonNa give in Cooperstown at the end of June is going to be fantastic in terms of the the cardinals hall of fame and Ted was already a member of that. I'm really really curious about your thoughts because well there's there's a bunch of things that come to mind that that now that Ted is in the hall of fame but I I started thinking Keith Hernandez is it being a major league hall of Famer and I think it's going to happen. He's got to be in the cardinals hall of fame at some point. But where do you stand on Keith on both of those the cardinals hall of fame and a and major leagues all Major League Baseball Fame. Yes I was just talking to somebody about that date because Keith Hernandez is one of those guys. Who hasn't yet made the veterans ballots? Now you know they'll be a great opportunity next time because Marvin Miller and Simmons won't be on it but but among the you know the Veterans Committee mid-east hasn't even got onto the list for consideration. So it's going to be some time for. Tornadoes may cooperstown to Carnegie Hall of fame. And again you know. I'm I'm probably older other than the average fan so I remember Hernandez Ted Simmons playing very well. And you know they're I. I have never seen in my lifetime. A Better Defensive First Baseman than Keith Intern and is and the bat. The numbers speak for themselves. Now you know of course. He got traded under the best circumstances to the New York mets and some younger people who who. Maybe didn't start to follow baseball until the mid eighties saw him. As a you know the leader of the the pond scum right the team. The cardinals was biggest rival. But you you look at those ten years at Keith Hernandez deliver the Saint Louis Cardinals. And you know you'd find a very hard time picking the nothing against the other candidates but you know I really I really hope voting in in in twenty twenty I I do too and I. I've asked Keith. I sit there. You a met or a cardinal and then he always says let me look around and he says I'm really cardinal. I'm a cardinal at heart. He grew up a cardinal. He met Stan the man when he was a young kid. Growing up in the San Francisco area and his dad introduced deuce to stand from playing pro ball and he considers himself having learned the game and the cardinal system and like you. I'm a little bit older. I can't believe I'm saying saying that but I am a little bit older remember watching Keith. Hernandez he was unbelievable defensive first baseman. And I'm in agreement with you. In my opinion I've I've said this on the air. He is the greatest defensive first baseman. I've ever seen and it's not even close. How good he is? And that's what fans if there are any phase out here. You're listening you know. Maybe the wintertime's a good time to pick up a good book while there's not baseball on every night to watch on TV There's came out about a year ago year and a half ago called. I'm Keith Hernandez in his autobiography. And you know he you know he includes the rough edges to because he was a wild guy when he was young. Like some of us an a now you. Of course Dan no not at all but you know he tells the story and it's basically history growing up in history becoming a cardinal. Yeah you know the most interesting but the you you know the bounty. The story is his time as a cardinal that made him a baseball player in a man. And if you weren't impressed with Keith Hernandez core after you read that book. There's no way you couldn't be absolutely I couldn't agree more. Brian Walton is our guest. The Cardinal Nation Dot Com winter meetings going on right now what happens from the Minor League perspective. There's a lot of business that people don't understand With the winter meetings because they're looking at Stephen Strasburg signing or what's the latest with player X Y and Z on the major Agia League level but man there is a ton of minor league business that happens at the winter meetings. It's really at the ground. The ground floor level. If you look at that you know the people milling around the lobbies of the of the hotels where these meetings are being held. And this time there if Elton Bayfront that there are many any job seekers young people who are have their resumes Clugston. They're left handed the right and ready to shake hands with. He can meet as they're trying to find jobs in the game and of course we're a lot of people got started was in the minor leagues you know getting a job You know with a with a minor league affiliate working your way up to eventually giving me truly job this year. Of course there's a little bit different flavor because there's sort of two camps of the of the one hundred sixty minor league teams there's the teams that Have Future and then there's the list of forty two franchises that have been targeted for virtual extinction. And so you know those those though the minor league teams are meeting. They're trying to make sure that they keep it united front even though you know roughly a quarter of the minor leagues are are under serious threat to AETNA longer exist in their kirk for. So you know this is a big deal. Yeah this is a huge. I've heard from so many people and I. I did a speaking engagement in Springfield Missouri. The other night with of course the double A. Team being based there was for the university. But you know there. There is a I I always say it's a fabric of the community that team and springfields Greenfield's not going anywhere but there's other teams might and I think it would be a shame to see those teams would not exist anymore. I bet you feel the same way I do and again again. You know I'm biased. I'M A minor league guy at heart but I mean you look at a facility like the Medical Field Ronald Park in State College Which is owned by Penn State University crispy and that you know the state is the state of Pennsylvania? Put fourteen million dollars in to making that that beautiful baseball park possible that shared by I can State University and the State College spikes and if that team goes away you know that home vestment is down the drain plus fans in Pennsylvania. have to decide to drive three. We hours to Pittsburgh or four hours to Philadelphia because Minor League baseball as we know it including an lawyers court where he makes a big deal about the home of the war. The League World Series then concluded williamsport on the list of teams to go as well. So you know fans I think Major League baseball is so focused on that the bottom line spreadsheet treat making money that they're losing sight of the importance of Minor League Baseball took develop new fans forty one million people went to minor league games last year. That's an important lifeline. Ice Line for for baseball as a whole business and I think it was. I think it was but feeling who said Hey. Baseball has a responsibility. It's not just. The business has responsibility to the people and I feel like the guys in charge now have lost sight of that. I agree with you wholeheartedly. AH lease what's coming out of the The the winter meetings concerning minor leagues may get the attention of the casual fan. Is that. There's the elimination of testing marijuana in in the minor leagues. What are your thoughts on that? And how do you think that that will will play out. Is is the season and seasons. Go forward it's important understand that for whatever reason baseball did not keep the details of their drug plans in sync between the majors and the minors. The Major League baseball players haven't been tested for marijuana for for years. And but for whatever reason they kept those stricter rules for the minor leaguers that were out of sync and it just didn't make any sense especially in today's world with you know the decriminalization of marijuana in you know now most states in the country to take a young man and say hey. You're oh you're GONNA have to sit out for fifty games because you used a recreational drug which the laws of our country are saying is okay to use so you know. It's great at their making this change. It's overdue unfortunately some players have been hurt now again. I'm not making excuses for the guys who got caught because they knew the rules and they decided to flop him but yeah you know it's a good thing overall but it's sort of like you know why did it take so long traffic ticket. Everything in line. I'm going to wrap it up with this Brian. You read between the the tea leaves a little bit and it looks like the cardinals are gonNA walk away from Marcello sooner that would be my guest and that means that they would explore or I'm sure whether it is reciting Marcel or another player outfielder. It's there but as it pertains to dealing Carlson at some point. We're going to see him. Barring Injury in two thousand twenty my question to you would be. Do you think we're going to see him at the beginning of the season does he break camp out of spring training.

"You've you've done the scouting How much enjoyment d get out of that and still watching the game and we'll get into how it's played but just just still being involved in the game of baseball and keeping your hand in it? I'm very lucky The game has changed as as you touched upon just a moment ago considerably but if you WANNA stay in this game or if you're able to been able to stay in like I have over the last thirty five forty years you have to be adaptable particularly in the last twenty years for sure because with the analytics today a day you have to understand and learn that language. And if you don't you won't be in today. Our game is predicated on the analytics. And if you don't understand that and if you can't adapt to it you'll be out. Is it good or is it bad for the game. I think it's changed the game. It's changed the game. I'm profoundly there are aspects of it. That are very very very good. I mean people complain about the shifts. The shift is not a new concept the differences today the shift is applied based on the statistics that exist on a players at bats and if he has a trend where seventy eight percent of every ground ball hits so the you know the right field side second base to play third Baseman at their base. And so that's what we're looking at today for just about everyone it'll change back you think so. I'm absolutely sure it'll change back but it's GonNa take a while. Does it have to change because guys. Let's say at high school. College could start to trickle down there to that they make the adjustment so then by the time they get to pro ball they know how to deal with the shift yes and they will have to go back to learning how to manipulate the bath head so that when I want hit the ball over there I have to get that bad angle in position so the ball when it does make contact with a bat will go over there in today's game over the last fifteen twenty years we have what's referred to swing plane which is essentially smooth smooth slightly up which generates the fly ball consistently and that's related to the ground ball in that if you hit a ground ball today you're gonNA we'll be out yeah because the trend is going to tell the opposition where to put those fielders so when you write up a report is it more an analytical report or what you're seeing for or your club and you're scouting or you you're taking the old school look of being that bird dog and saying that guy can play that guy can't play this is where you pitch him those kind of things everybody knows today that it's both It's a subjective analysis and the object of yeah quantify. Subjective can this Guy Ron can heathrow. Does he hit does he hit with power. Does he have the ability to manipulate the bat hit for for a high average. Does he have a high on base percentage. What's his ops? All of these are part of the mix today which when when you evaluate a player today what is runs. What's his RBI's what's his home run production? What's his stolen base? What's his war? And years ago no one knew what war was all about wins above replacement and that is the telling stat today. No question what's your war and and that's what you pay for when you watch the game. I'm assuming you're still a fan of the game. I am taking away the the scouting aspect of it in front office aspect of it and playing aspect of it. Are you concerned about the game. As a fan in the length of the Games in that a lot of times. It's just a result of of a walk strikeout and a home run. I concerned about that. Yes yes but baseball is forever evolving. Yeah people don't get in a hurry. Okay they'll change back it always did. It always has always will but right now. We're in a cycle where the home run is king and frankly the home run is always been king it just didn't happen as often. ballparks bigger the players weren't as physically physically capable of hitting home runs as they are today. The swing plane has created a leverage perspective that generates more homers but people might get to the point. Where so you know if we could just get that ball pushed over with at third base player that third baseman is vacated? Did get a run right now and when the game well. That's not so emphasized right now because the most efficient way to score a run in major league baseball the homer and so it's changed our game we might change back with you being a great catcher and in my mind to hall of Fame Catcher. You Watch chatty Molina. You've seen him his whole career fans I've done just about every one of his games and I'm watching one of the great players I've ever seen put on a cardinal uniform. You are and can you feel the same way. Don't use a hall of fame player. Who No question about this You know my shortest version with Yati. I'll say it again. Yadi has the ability. It'd be the hitting instructor pitching coach manager Catcher. He has the ability to all those just things. What's extraordinary about him is he could do them all same time? And when you think about that. I'm not exaggerating. He might not be willing to do it but if for some reason that became necessary he could do it you think so. Absolutely do he could hit. He's he's he's become a great hitter. He's become a run producer. He's now learned with power. I mean you know. His whole offensive approach is significant today as opposed to when he first came he understands the pitching inside out. I mean when he goes to the mound to stop play and everybody comes to the mound. I mean it's because he is the pitching coach and he is out there reflecting the managers. Intent can't and the pitching coach is intent and he makes it plain to everyone when he gets out there and then he goes back and is then catcher again and it's very likely early in the next half inning. He's leading off and his APP to homer. Yeah so you're looking at an extraordinary extraordinary player. One I've never seen in my life defensively. Like what is it about his defense. It makes him different than others. Well he's certainly carries. You know the the ability to throw which is always. The first prerequisite bench had a great arm. I had a very strong arm. People like this and Yada has that kind of arm comparably but he runs the game Like no other catcher. I've ever seen I recognize what he does because the things he does occasionally I remember doing myself off and I say this is intentional. You don't see this often and so when I see it it thrills drills me the thing that's extraordinary about him. He can literally take young pitchers which is what he does and he forces them to pitch above their skill set or ability so if he's out there and it's three and one on the batter and the lead runs at third base. Okay and there's one out he's not gonNA give that guy a fastball. I don't care how good that pitcher's fastball is. He's going to demand or insist that he throws something off-speed either a slider three one for strike or change up through and one for strike and get back into the camp but he will never latte ladder young pitcher ever. Just give up and say okay. I'm giving in Yadi won't let that happen. It's how he runs. That's the game. It's how he makes really special pitchers out of ordinary ones and I mean a good pitcher if they if he catches I mean that good pitcher pitches to Yati. He's GonNa he got a chance of being a great pitcher and just a fairly short manner our time Yati makes them do things that they don't think they can do interesting. I'll wrap it up with a couple of questions. What are you most proud of in your career as you reflect on your baseball life? What are you most proud of? Well I don't know what I'm most as proud of because it's been such a long career and so many wonderful things have happened to me. I got to play in the world series. I played in the seventh seven-game I hit a world series home. Run all the things that everyone dreams about as a little boy. And in some instances today a little girl thinks about. I won't play in the seventh game. I WANNA play in the world series I go. I had all those dreams as a kid and I got to do all all those things so I don't know what I'm most proudest of other than to say I'm really happy to have been able to begin in my life in this industry and eventually end my life. Hopefully still in it at this point in time I couldn't be happier. Sure I guess e- or more proud that I've been able to laugh this. There'd been lots of changes lots of things I've seen that a remarkable. I guess I'm proudest more than anything else to have been able to spend that time. My Conversation with Ted Simmons continues in just a moment and we'll get into whether or not he believes he should.

"ted simmons" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac

"Ted Simmons and Ozzie Smith and we're hoping to say to baseball all famers is well but I want this to be kind of of a wide ranging interview with you ted. Because for so many people in Saint Louis you played in an era in which the club just couldn't get over the Hump but yet you were in in many ways the face of the team at that time. So let's start with just going into the cardinals hall of fame and putting you back into the prominence of being out front center with the Cardinal Fans. What does that mean for you to go and your family to go in the Cardinal Hall of fame? Well it was a wonderful experience. That day was a celebration that you know ranks in one's one's life. I can remember being asked the question. What does that feel like for you and I said you know? Recently I watched Mickelson. Go into to the Augusta Masters Tournament and win it and then put on the green jacket and I said you know I. I don't don't know what that feels like. It must have been very very special for Mickelson to put on jacket. I don't know what that feels like but I can assure you there's one thing For sure and that is Nicholson does know what it feels like. Put this redwood on and I perceive it as comparable really special thing thing to have happened. And a great great franchise organization that is this is as historic as it could possibly be and be part. All that put on. That red jacket is real special. What is it like when you still put it on now? Any do it multiple times throughout the year opening day. The hall of fame ceremony. Those kind of things. What's it like every time you put put on all its special because they don't let you take it home right there fragile? Go out to eat and get mustard. After the days over there Yank get off and they put it back and stored away. So it's not like you're living with it So when you put it back on it's like for the first time again almost every time you're at other places do you consider yourself a cardinal through and through now of course of course I mean I was born in bread. I was picked number one tenth overall enroll in the country. Nine hundred. Sixty seven I remember Tim. Macabre was a catcher at the time and they had Recently you know been to the world series and had great teams at that time. Sixty four sixty seven sixty eight. They were the heat so as I are so born and Bred Cardinal I've always felt that way and I see myself as such when you get to the organization and then you made it to the big leagues at such a young age. Where they're guys that you look back now and say man that guy was such a mentor for me and just getting me to the big leagues? Your your talents GonNa get you there. But there's those that teach you how to be a big leaguer to who who were those guys well. I was so young at the time I came up and I was you know in September knbr first time I was nineteen years old because my Shannon had gotten ill and Tori had just come to play third base when Shannon got sick and that spring training they had to improvise was scheduled to go back to AAA which I did but when it became clear Mike had the initial stages of the Friday the kidney and he had to literally retire from baseball at that time Torrey went back from catching to third base. Yes and then I came up from AAA to play every day as the catcher wasn't ready. I was certainly way too young but after for a while when you get mentor by People macarbre Tori Catch people like Gibson Carleton You grow up really quickly. They literally show you how the game is played how the game is pitched what the expectations are. What the paces and the expectation is that you AH daft quickly which because I was athletic I was able to do and over time? I found myself established at the major league level. Do you remember that first. Time Catching Bob and what was like three. I don't remember the first time Because I was I was having difficulty. Colty frankly I'd never seen a guide pitch at that pace with such great stuff and so trying just to get the finger style now and coordinated Throughout the course of the game was was a task for me finally Gibson came to me and said look I only throw to pitcher's IOS fastball. slider you put down whatever you want. If I'm shaking go to the other one. So if I put the helm fastball shaking his head I knew the pitch was going to be slider hider. In that way I wasn't disrupting his pace. He could go into his wind up. You get into his program and check the sign. If it wasn't twenty one indeed shakers head and I go to the other. I know it was coming. We knew it wasn't the first time I you know I caught him but I would say it's it's how I adapted over the course of the first ten times. How did you make it? Through the heat of the summer you would play one hundred fifty plus games at Busch Stadium and the turf. was there at at that point. Time after moving out of sportsman's how did you manage to play and keep physically fit and just through the rigors of a season I was looking at your numbers Ted. The one thing that people don't look at is longevity that you played with the amount of games you played and he did it in the heat of the summer in Saint Louis on the turf. How were you able to do that? Well I came up young young and that helps. It helps an awful lot. I mean I played six years in the major leagues and I was twenty five years old. Most people don't get to the Major Leagues Tiller Twenty Twenty five years old so having done that and become acclimated to it. One Saint Louis Heat and humidity turf. I would point out I. I had one advantage that brock didn't brock was left field standing on the turf. At least I was at home plate and that was dirt so unless I was on the base paths I wasn't standing ending on it but the fact that I was young and the fact that I wanted to succeed drive you and what I also realized that Early Age that if I wanted to play at the measure level stay playing every day was the trick and two I learned. Also that didn't really really matter how I felt only mattered. What I did there were days? I felt awful and did great. There were days I felt great and it awful awful and so I made a the disassociation of how I felt really quickly because as I say some days I fell terrible. Hit Two homers. Yeah baseball days. I feel great and struck out three times so you have to separate. That hasn't isn't got anything to do with what you feel only matters what you do. I know when the Pitcher is gonNA throw a fastball. Right down the middle of the plate And I never know when he's going to paint the black all day on me so all I can do is go out there and deal with you know what I get when you look back. I always said this and growing up here I loved watching you and those teams and I always felt you close. And then I think about man if they didn't Trade Carlton Obviously and Jerry Royce You're talking about one of the elite teams in the Seventies. Do you feel the same way that you would have been that good. If those guys stay well if those guys had stayed it certainly would have changed our about club considerably. Then you know Al might've might've been able to save a few more games and may not have to pitch seventh eighth and ninth together sheriff. So it changes amick a lot when people like Carlton or Royce leave a roster but You know it's still you know. Hindsight is twenty twenty you so you can look back and dream and hope and wish things were different but you can only do what you can do and you know in. In those those days I mean Cincinnati had really good team here so to Pittsburgh yeah and to overtake either. One of those two to become nationally champions would have been you. You know tough enough. No matter what. The constitution of your team was. Who was the guy that we get in the box? And you're putting down the signs and it didn't matter who was on the mound but you're like man going to get this guy out star Joel or bench. Those kind of players have of Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. That you're talking about who's that guy that in that era that you thought. Wow this is. It's GonNa be a tough one tonight. Well you know it depends on what you know you're concerned about. If you're concerned about the Homerun Star Joel Bench. These guys foster are these key Perez. These guys were real issues. You were worried about the long ball home run but if you're concerned about a base hit one base hit in in a crucial situation with the lead run at second base you know or third base if the you know the the run scores the game is over toughest guy you no well covers two guys I ever you know was you know. Felt that way about Rusty Staub. If Rusty decided he going to strike out. You couldn't strike them out. I mean it wasn't a matter him sitting up there trying to follow ball off he was sit up there and putting a bad on you. That every at-bat every swing was like critical and okay. I got him set up this unit. have roughly suffer anything because he hits right smack Mac on a nose or followed off and make you start over rusty staub. was that kind of hitter for one guy. Best hitter I ever saw Played played against with George Brett Really George rat race toughest dot in all of baseball. And if he'd have played in a ballpark were reasonable homerun. He'd hit five five hundred. Mohamed is saying and you're GONNA say Pete Rose No no George. Brett was the best fighter I ever saw. Is that right absolutely I mean. Hit three eighty eight now bad. And as I say in a ballpark that until they change those dimensions at Kaufman yet Antonio he played where you had to homer and you know I think had four or five hundred doubles because he kept one hop on that wall. If he'd have been a normal park does been homers was tough when you were traded away. I I know a lot of fans have. I've been curious about this and they want me to ask you about it so I will. How tough was it when you were traded away in the situation with wate and just the different things that were going on with the organization in yourself at that time well well anytime you're traded especially for the first time it's always difficult? Okay but you know so much has been made about that trade and the feelings that were attached attached speculate about I've known Whitey for a long long time. Yeah and at the time. Why do you night talked specifically about that trade because frankly I was ten and five meaning I had ten years in the majors and could o- tr- okay the trade so all I needed to know was that's what the goal and objective was? I also wanted to know who was in the deal and when it was clear to me and why they made it plain. That fingers was in that deal along with Kebich and myself. I knew Milwaukee had at that time and they had dynamite baseball team particularly offensive. Now if the three of us the names I just mentioned went to Milwaukee's Club topnotch closer major league hall of fame mm calibre and a cy young eventual winner in Buchnevich. Plus myself they didn't have an solid everyday catcher. I knew the Milwaukee was going to be better better and it's going to be very competitive so when the time came. And why do you and I talked through what the goals and objectives were and what that trade specifically would be. I was in a position to say okay and as I say. People have speculated about the dynamic that Ted Simmons Whitey Herzog have had over the last thirty five or forty years however many years it's been now I let it I just let it go and pretty much wide. He does too because we know what will happen. And we know how it evolved and I don't hold any animal animosity over and I don't think he does either. No I I find a great when you guys come to the hall of fame to embrace. It's a hug how you knew. And it's you know people need to know that too. I hope they come to known and accepted. Because it's true. Why did he was a great great manager of people ask me? Who's the best manager you had? I was only with them for the one year but clearly the best strategist no one could out bullpen him. Nobody could it out. You know design him because he literally took a ball club and said okay. We're going to speed and defense you to death. And he did and and he designed like the clube hadn't Kansas City which will also a turf team in a ballpark identical same dimensions. Same configuration. And and he knew that if you've got a ground ball or two hopper into the gap that was gonna be a triple and he said if I put speeding and defenders in that outfield. I feel I can cut it off and either keep it to a single or double. He came to Saint Louis designed the club the same way we know the names and we know who they are and where they played and that's essentially what he did in Kansas City and he knew what he was doing when he brought that concept here for fans at your scout still in the game of baseball with the Atlanta braves as you made your life in baseball so now you're post playing career G.

"And you'll see Ted and Ozzy onstage with myself before that for a special price point of the ticket you can see a QA privately with cardinals. Manager Mike Shelled when when you think of Ted Simmons. It's an amazing story in baseball. That is still going today. Is He's a scout for the Atlanta. Braves made his Major League debut at the age of nineteen in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty eight. You want consistency assistance. He had that two thousand four hundred. Seventy two hits over twenty. One years hit two eighty-seven versus right handed pitching to eighty one verse lefthanded pitching and he totaled more walks than strikeouts against both about durability he played in at least one hundred fifty games for seven consecutive seasons on the heat and turf a Bush stadium to in nineteen seventy five. He caught one hundred fifty four games and at the time he set the single season record for hits as a catcher with one eighty eight. That was later broken by Jason Kendall the hall of fame. We're going to get into that. And he has some very very interesting thoughts on that and we'll know more on December eighth whether or not he gets into the hall of fame he should be in the hall of fame. At the time of his retirement. He had four hundred and eighty three devils which was the most by any catcher in the hall of fame and held the National Italy record for home runs by a switch hitting catcher to eighty five average eighteen points higher than Johnny Bench's. He batted three hundred six times. He reached twenty homers five five times as a cardinal six times of the cardinals he was an all star twice in the American League. And as far as cardinal switch hitters about this hundred seventy two home runs and nearly thousand. RBI's that's why he's in the cardinals fame. That's why he should be in baseball's hall of fame. He'll be part of the National Pigeons Cancer Society coming up in January. We hope that you'll be a part of it as well get a ticket at the NC dot org sit back and relax a great conversation conversation so many topics covered from what he's doing now as a scout being GM playing for the Saint. Louis Cardinals and what the Cardinals Hall of fame and what Baseball's hall all of.

"I mean, I you felt like we're gonna win this thing. And we know we're going to win it and very fortunate enough. You know, we're will come through. Garret Anderson had a big bases-loaded double that scored three to put us up for two one. And you know are back in the bullpen was very good. Yeah. So we close it out and win it. So it was very exciting. Yeah. So the thing that, you know, we had this banquet last night with you and Ray Lankford and Ted Simmons onstage, and you were telling some of the story of how you went from the angels to the cardinals. And I had forgotten about that. But so if I'm not mistaken, so we talk in two thousand five they were talking about the it was actually December of two thousand four years after the four season. And this is when the I guess the roulette happened so ignorant -tory was playing in Saint Louis. That's right Orlando Cabrera was playing in Boston Boston just won the World Series. Edgar ends up going to Boston, which leaves Orlando open. And legitimately. So the angels. There was not many errors. They thought they could upgrade. But they definitely thought they could upgrade at shortstop. And so they go and get Orlando Cabrera, which ends up non tendering me. So all set and like, I'm on the market and legitimately within three days. I am signing a three year deal was actually the most ever non tender deal in the history of the game with the Saint Louis cardinals. Was thrilled to death. Couple days later, you know, now it's a little after Christmas now so going to a party at my my wife's uncle's house. And he brings over the phone me. And he's like, hey, got someone special that wants to welcome you to Saint Louis, and I was like, okay. And I picked up the phone, and it was actually Ozzie Smith, and it was just pretty surreal. But it just shows you what type of family the cardinals are. And how you know what I mean from day one. They opened me with they welcomed me with open arms allows you say you recall the conversation. We'll just basically be yourself. Yes. You know? I just want to welcome. You're coming to one of the greatest cities to play the game. And just be yourself. You know, and because as everyone knows you mean, he's always will be the shortstop that anyone ever thinks that when it comes to Saint Louis cardinal baseball. And even even Tony from day. One called me up and told me when they signed me was the sense of the best thing about Saint Louis in the team. We have we don't need you to do anything else except. Tbe you like if you just be you. You'll be perfect. And that that was good to hear knows good to hear you know, that I didn't have to try to do stuff that you know, my skill set would not allow. Yeah. When you have pools at men's role and Larry Walker was there. Reggie sanders. Mark law. Yeah. You know, what I mean legitimate Yati was just you know, his first full year. Right. First full year to this day. I'll say that is the best club. I've ever played on and to get back to a little bit of what we were talking about before like after winning game six and no to like, no, we're gonna win game seven, you know. And when we beat Houston when our hits the massive home run to to to bring it back to Bush for game six, I promise you. I had the same exact feeling, and you know, what? I mean like, oh my gosh. The only reason why this happened is that we're going to win. And now we're going to go back to the World Series and stuff like that. And when we lost. Oh my gosh. Like your us done just on. And it wasn't even much of a game royals while Dell Dell and and like it was it was just just amazing..
