"Steve when you had your piff Unie about Michael. That led you to write that. How aware were most people of the movements that he had made? Was there a lot of buzz around him? At that point in the season because banning average was around two hundred. And that's what people look at first right. If you saw that he was hitting one ninety eight you would think you would think he's a failure right. There are stories of other major leaguers who had terrible minor league seasons but clearly. They were showing talent in the team stuck weather. And maybe the case with Michael Jordan. So what happened next for hidden and his baseball career. What happened next was he went to the Arizona. Fall League which is a higher level baseball. Even the southern league any to fifty five. He was clearly tracking towards at least a promotion to triple A. And maybe a call up to Chicago in nineteen ninety five but has it happened. Baseball was in a work stoppage. For the first time in American history a union is about to go on strike even though its members make an average salary of a million dollars apiece and Michael didn't want any part of that. This labor crisis has the potential matching severity and longevity. The players walk out of eighteen ninety which lasted a full year. So when the strike hit Michael didn't even consider crossing the picket line to get his chance. No he was A. He was a player wrap himself. He was not about to go against the grain there so he decided to give up baseball. Tito Francona Mike Barnett. Maintain to this day. He could've made the major leagues. What about you do you think he would have made it and how good could have bit? I? I think he could have made the major leagues. I'm not sure he would have been a starting outfielder. You know I look. At the current landscape of baseball Michael Jordan would have been alike. Michael Taylor nationals outfielder. Michael Taylor a Grand Slam home. Run Fast and very grateful and has a little pop. Goes Taylor Paul's in left field? And he will score to one for the running wild nationals to see because of that strike and the timing of it all Michael went back to basketball and well. The rest is history agency and play out on the stance about you know his first full season back the Bulls set a record for the most wins in NBA history. They won the title ear. Spoiler alert the next two seasons after that as well when he initially retired in one. Thousand Nine Three. You mentioned. He did it in part largely. He was burned out. How did that season in baseball affect his mindset for coming back to the NBA? Did he get what he needed out of? It definitely definitely.

Probably won't get in, but he's going to have his regular season candidacy, which is you guys accurately noted falls, well short of the standards. It'll get a boost from some of this stuff, probably not enough. But, you know who really knows about the hall of fame anymore? When people like Jack Morris and Harold, Baines get in. It's just really hard. If John Lester finds himself on a committee, fifteen or twenty years from now where the, the committee's made up of a THEO Epstein, and Joe Madden question.

Have you ever heard the song lose yourself by Eminem? Yeah. I did what happens one moment. Yeah. You get one moment you're gonna capture just let it slip. I did. No, I captured it it was a forty six hop. Dribbler off the bat of Margaret Simeone hit the tarp and rolled to me and stopped directly at my feet. Charging. All right. He's going to say charge it.

Speaking of getting crushed who did who did book there, give up that bomb to where he knew immediately, right off the bat that it was gone, who was a righty. It was the catcher Peres. Oh, yes. That's it was. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes, yeah. He was in tanks and that World Series. He I feel like he's do that hits. What like ten home runs a year. But like hit bombs when they are gone. He's He's a hard a time. he's a he. I told my friend that there is nothing mooring site exciting in sports than a grand slam. And he said, game winning shot in basketball is more exciting incorrect. Please explain to him. How stupid he is. Thanks, boys. Love the podcast, all our fucking fantastic. That's a good way to get your question. Go ahead yet. So did he say? Walk off home run compared to buzzer beater. Just oh he he did not. Do he did not say that? I do think that's an important distinction because for as much as I love baseball. There's no way you can convince me that a regular grand slam. And like the fourth inning is more exciting than a game winning shot. It's yet. No, it's not as exciting, but I think also like the element of a grand slam anytime. The bases are loaded. You're like who's who's on day everyone? No, there's no other situation in baseball where everyone is thinking homerun, regardless of who's at the plate. The basis are loaded your mmediately thinking France pation breach. These two. And then when you get the pay off your like because game winning shot in basketball, we've got a strong idea of who's going to take that shot. Yeah. We know when it's going to happen because the clock is fucking telling us for baseball like Jared said, you've got the bags juiced and your -ticipant eating the entire at bat pitch. You're hanging on and it doesn't matter if it's GIO Urszula he of tin career homers stepping to the plate for the first time this season. Because you just never know. You just never know those fucking baseball's got more hop in their hind legs in kangaroo these days. So you just never know. And then you add in the element of walk-off game winner. Not even close. I would agree walk off grand slam over buzzer beater, ten times out of ten all day all day every day. I just don't know..
