"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.

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.
