Cleveland Indians suffer wild-card nightmare in 12-3 loss to New York Yankees
"The game last night, Yankees, and Indians and incredible match basis. You had seen Bieber the guy who's been the best pitcher on the planet this. Year versus Garrett Cole the Best Pitcher on the planet last year we thought they were going to be very few runs well, that didn't turn out to be the case, the gigantic right hand hitter leaning out over the plate from the stretch. The pitch is swaying in a high fly ball into right center field Ed's deep racing back to shields at the wall, and that ball is gone homerun Aaron judge and a quick strike for the New York Yankees they jump out in front on Bieber to nothing. Yet Dj Lemay Hugh had singled and then Aaron Judge Rip Day Homerun four pitches into the game. The Yankees at a two old lead on Bieber. Any never recovered this is what happened in the top of the fifth any gleyber Torres at the plate swing a high fly ball into left center field deep on run Naylor back to the wall looking up and that ball is God. In his Outta here it just snuck out off the top of the wall out gleyber Torres with a two run homer. And a Yankees keep slugging away they lead it seven to two. That call from OBI, the Great Obi Dave, O'Brien on ESPN radio the Yankees go on to win twelve to two in game on Garrett Cole was fantastic. He had thirteen strikeouts. No walks. He's a second Yankee pitcher with ten plus strikeouts in the team's first game of the postseason hall of. FAMER. Red. Roughing at ten strikeouts in Game One, the nineteen thirty, two world series against the cubs and with thirteen strikeouts walks Cole also match Tom seaver game one of the Nineteen seventy-three and LCS for the most strikeouts in a postseason appearance without issuing. A. Walk the AKC's four homers in this game tied for the second most in a playoff game. In franchise history, they had five homers in game four of the nineteen twenty eight world series against the cardinals. So when you can match numbers going back to the world series from Nineteen thirty two and nineteen twenty eight says a lot about how much yankees dominated in Game One Garrett Cole talked about his first postseason start with the Yankees. Now there was a lot of fun I mean it was a really complete team day my thought that. The middle innings when. They scored we responded with. Sizeable lead which. I thought was kind of allow them Try Not allow them to get some momentum through news dunes and. We keep on defense become elite runners lean offers off. The bags which was kept a pitch count down and we swap bats really well, and I joined myself so a nice that. You also talked about setting the tone. We need to set the tone for the series and You, know. I'm obviously very painful ambled gable to take the ball in this position So to be able to deliver feels really good and and obviously with my son area thrown felt pretty good too so. Yeah I would say I would say it definitely. was definitely a special night. But especially this year, we allow more baseball to to win so honestly celebrate to get stuff and and And showered off and come back to Marlin through all during the sixty game season Bieber did not allow more than three runs in any starting in this game he allowed seventy talked about his struggles after the game Yes. I felt. Extremely prepared coming into the start just like every other start, the season and. Fell behind first hitter and and that I obviously didn't go as planned. I felt like overall looking back at the outing. Objectively. Just, wasn't as aggressive as I wish I would have been with my ob- speeds of in the zone and maybe some fastballs in and just challenging these guys a little bit more. I felt like I fell behind quite a bit and forced myself into some bad situations and so bad counts, and then you know all that on top of not having my stuff and making mistakes. Amounted to what came out of tonight so No excuses was. It was. Not. The the I start that. We wanted to get out. With and Me personally as well but we got two more games and and cookies go out there and do thing tomorrow and hopefully I'll get the ball back as soon as possible in these three series right away elimination games later today Carlos. Carrasco? Shame. Bieber just referenced the right there cookie versus Masahiro Tanaka

And what are your thoughts against his three game Dodgers series? The first round if and when they get to l. A on Wednesday? Well, I don't know if anybody would pick the Giants to win that. I don't think it's it just it's just not not a reasonable way to think. I mean, the Dodgers were the best team in baseball there 25 games over 500 there one through nine with power hitters. They've got Kirsch on and bueller lined up. They got a bunch of right handed pitchers, you know, adjust in May and Johnson against the Giants, right handers. Stacks up really kind of comically. One sided, however, Marty, it's baseball, right? I mean, what's the point of serious when the first one, but if they be Kershaw behind behind God's man, I mean, you know, that's that's the great thing. They go in your record book? Look up. 1951 look of 1962. Yeah, and this is a you're going to write it. I hope it's Giants Dodgers. You'll write a great story that you will write an amazing story. About about how these teams have played before and how the Giants were written off before to the very last pitch, and they ended up winning and winning penance by doing it. So my feeling is Bruce. You got a lot of lefties. The Dodgers a lefty oriented. We've seen what Kershaw was done before. It's a baseball game. That's all it is. Anything can happen. Yeah, three runs in the first inning off. Kershaw is like, whoa, what's going on here? And all of a sudden, people say, Gee, we didn't see that coming. Yeah, and it's very I wouldn't say it's unique to baseball. But you know if you get an NFL Matchup kind of the best in the worst. He had a pretty good idea how it's going to come out or an MBA. The Lakers are playing a team that's you know, they can't win a game to save their life. If you had a fair idea, but the baseball and we've seen it so many times. You can just knock you on your own your song on your seat her off your seat. What's What is it? Something like that happens. It's the shock. That's it. Come on the Mets and the Orioles 1969. How about that? Yeah, the miracle Mets. They weren't supposed to get there. They weren't supposed to beat the Braves, then Henry Aaron, and they did. And then next next thing, you know, they win the whole thing. And you know Cleon Jones and Tommy and me and Tom Seaver and all of a sudden the team that have been so unbelievably bad. It's like, Wow, these guys are really good, and it turned out they They were very good for the for the next several years, But that was that was a miraculously kind of thing that you know it goes back to the miracle Braves, you know, back in 1919 14. That's correct, George Stone, the miracle Braves. Yeah. So The history of baseball. It's filled with great stuff like this and completely improbable development. So we will watch with great anticipation.

I mean, you know, how many people call him at home, but Hank ended up giving everything that hall of fame from his career donating it to us and that set of that set forth emotion for Tom Seaver to follow suit, which was great because Seaver grew up itemizing, Hank Aaron and then the two of them. Lead to each euro, more modern guy who just retired also pledging his entire collection to Cooperstown. So, you know, not only sank the greatest, but he feels that his career belongs to the public. And when Hank speaks people, listen as evidenced by Tom Seaver, and each euro Suzuki, tell me what your internal reaction was when he said those words to you that you know, what I want to get all my stuff to you guys. Oh, my knees buckled. I mean, he had always been generous to us. You know, we had so many things of his in Cooperstown. But you know, it just I think that was about one of the few times that my knees really really shape or shaking and buckling, and you know, because of his generosity we were able to you know, have him be the centerpiece for gallery of records one for the books, and it also means that we can loan some of his stuff out to other places. You know, for instance, when his mom passed away about ten years ago in mobile, Alabama, where there are as you know, BUSTER five hall of famers for mobile. Not to mention them jelly roll. Morton degree piano player. But. We ended up helping the mobile bears. Move Hank's childhood home on the back of a truck over to the ballpark and help them turn that into a living history museum. So they entrusting us with his collection. It allows us to tell his story, and so many other places Willie Mays which got for me and Willie Mays. Well, one of the one of the fun fun things for Willie for me was I asked him about the great stickball photo that we all know of of him playing up in up in Washington heights. When he was with the giants and getting the be with Willie. I it it it really struck home. And I I asked him about that picture, and he told me that he used to play, you know, he used to play stickball up there that the the kids would come through Roxette as apartment window to get them to come out and play the giants had a night game. He plays stickball before the game..

"For details. Roberts the midday live from city field as we sit here about forty minutes away from the Mets home opener. They are taking on the Washington nationals. The Yankees are taking part of the Baltimore Orioles. Home opener later this afternoon. You'll hear the game on the station is James Paxton will make his second start as a Yankee as they try to cool off the red hot. You can't stop them. Both to more Orioles did lose yesterday, but therefore into their off to a surprisingly good start eight seven. Seven three three seven sixty six sixty six the number. Let's go to Mark in Newark, New Jersey. Hey, Mark, Mark. How are you? Good morning, fellas. I gotta go up about my beloved New York Mets and jets one one point of the point out yet, by the way that official non I'm not going there. Joe you want to go. I'm going to go. I would love it. Mitch, man. I couldn't wait for baseball season. Gotta say is. Hey, cool. Okay. Cool. I think that the Mets gotta do. Just like the jets did make that move that seems to be the right move. Did we lose him? So I think we lost him. I hope the move is the right move for the jets Levy on bell. We'll we'll see how we also I'm afraid of kaikal. I'm telling you. Not had a spring training and the track record over the last few years of starting pitchers that sign late and this is particularly 'cause we've already started the season. It's not good. You know, it's not a really good track record in. So if you sign him, let's say it's a three year deal. Right. I doubt it would be. But let's say got him on a throw. You're right. I get it sing. Yeah. Hopefully contributes this year, but you got him next year. He got him the year after it's a good long-term investment. But if it's a one year deal he's got to perform, and I'm worried he's not gonna perform. I don't think you just look at the back of his baseball card or look at his success against the Yankees. Look at a success in the playoffs and say, oh, it's a no brainer. I think we are in such short of territory now where it's April, and he hasn't signed that it would scare me that doesn't mean I have come on. Did sign. I don't think he'd be you know, pitching like right away. It will be a while before we would seem it'd be a while. But then when we see him what is he here? Well, Tony implant, we've probably is not happening. So probably not Tony's imports Saint Lucy. Tony our you could see good to see Dom Smith tuna could you a couple years ago when they first four them up. Kevin wong? Tried to make a power arrived of him. He was there for quarters season and hit nine over here. One nine eight. Yep. Yup. And everything that's that's great. Tony. Smith was never really a power. In the minor leagues. And. Colonial thing. Let Dombi Dom. Yeah. Let him go the other way, and that's going to kind of help them. Evolve. Chili Davis so far with the approach it. He's got with this team. I gotta like what you're saying there. You know, probably the story I heard in spring training. Mat Matlock, which rookie year in seventy two way before your time. Evan who? John NAT lack, of course. Yes. Seventy one he made us start. I thought ever against the reds Concepcion. Hit a Homer something. I any shut him out the rest of the game pinch forum like in the eighth in and and they took the lead. So now he's in the locker room, and he the winning pitcher if they hold the lead and Mets reliever came in and beluga game. Not surprising. But surprisingly, it was Tom Seaver. As a relief pitcher. I don't remember that the game before the all-star game. Yes. You know what? Now that you say I didn't they and if I'm not mistaken didn't they use coups been in that game too? I'm not sure for the people who became c relieved in that game. I'm gonna find that out. We're talking about seventy one people may thirty seventy one here instead of doing thirty five right now seventy one was Matt lacks first year, but that wasn't his rookie season because he only made seven seventy two. Seventy two seventy two in the yet. All right. Seventy one. All right. I'll find out and I don't know about that. Because seventy two was his first full year and anyone fifteen at ten at year. But I remember that right before the all star break, and I'm not one hundred percent, sure. Two year. Ev I believe Matt lack Kouzmin end Seaver all pitched in that game. Well, here's the I've got the three of them. Okay. You nailed it. First of all Seaver came out blue at the ninth inning starting pitcher was John Matlock that day tug McGraw in and got one out. And then Seaver came in not only was it the last game before the all-star break. I think it was a double header. I think it was the second game of a doubleheader. It was July eleventh my birthday nineteen seventy one. Okay. What's seventy one? It was the second game of a doubleheader. And that's when Seaver came out of the bullpen blew it. They lost five to three in Cincinnati. Who's been pitching game to know the first game of the doubleheader. No, he didn't always worse game of the doubleheader Nolan. Ryan started and got bombed and they lost. But in the second game of the doubleheader Tom Seaver out of the bullpen in Cincinnati and blew the game for John Matlock? So that's a good job. I told him I was very good. Very and the dump Smith thing, I always thought this Dom Smith when you look at his minor league numbers was never a power hitter. And he played in Vegas where? Inflated. And for some reason, I don't know why that was like this belief that Dom Smith was a power hitter. You're the same thing right Ernie. And we would what joke with each other. Power hitter. Who thinks he's a power hitter? And so maybe that was a part of his struggles that they brought them up here and said Eichel pull everything Changle hit home runs. Dom success in the minor leagues was hitting well over three hundred I'll give you some of these numbers twenty seventeen in Vegas hundred and fourteen games. Listen to these numbers three thirty sixteen home, runs seventy six RBI's and one hundred and fifteen games. Decent pot power. The fact is he three thirty. Yup. The year before that in Binghamton three. Oh, two three sixty seven on bass, fourteen home runs Ninety-one RBI's one hundred thirty games. That's not a power hitter. That's a good hitter. And maybe that's what Dom is. But what I really want to see is his chance to play. And I think it's tough. If that's going to happen on this team with pita, Lonzo, I think the only way it happens is if they stick him in the outfield, and I think he's a good athlete. So with more experience in the outfield. I think he's only gonna get better and better with that opportunity. Indeed. But it's a fair. Point that the the philosophy changes benefited guys, maybe it's going to benefit Dom Smith. Maybe more than anybody else. Maybe so far so good. Our he's in Brooklyn. Ari? Our you. Hey, guys. How're you doing good? Yeah. I wanna get the Mets the quick Evan for you. You know, my my Scott Rolen rains on tomorrow. No. We we mentioned that a couple of times. Yeah. So look look looking for that. I'd rather hear you interview him. But okay. What can you do? I trust me. I'm actually rather. Mike get to him. Yeah. Exactly. Okay. I know everyone's thinking they started level one last year. So comparing to this show, I think that the big differences that. Last year. They didn't have a good team. They just happened to get. It was very flukey the eleven one star. But this year, they actually have you know, they actually have a very good team. So the fact they're starting hot is much different than last year because the team is it much less fluky my point where we'll another thing with his team. And I keep pointing this out. This is a lot younger team than that. That started the season last year. You know, you had Frazier there you had cesspit is there yet guys like that? And I understand you got Robbie can here. He's an older guy. I get that. But this team is young different feel to this team in last year's team. I do agree. But I think it's easy now not for you. But far less caller to say, oh that was fluky at eleven and one did you really think tonight thought, hey, maybe they have going, right? But you're spot on with your point. Here are the facts, why don't we check it on the Mets opening day lineup year ago? Good. Brandon Nimmo same thing leading. Here are the two Sixers you'll win assessment is Jay Bruce. Jay Bruce forgot about him as drubel Cabrera Hugo Todd. Frazier. Adrian Gonzala yet team then you had Kevin lucky catching great, and I'm Ed Rosario at shortstop, which is still right? So outside of Nimmo and Rosario Lukoil replaced who it is a younger team. No question. But when they're eleven and one I think all of us very thought that we thought they were on their way. No doubt about right now, very special moment here at city field because that reef or reef is being handed to the manager of the New York. Mets Mickey Callaway the festivities. How he roses out on the field? I see that. He's beginning me announcements. And Mickey is getting that world-famous opening day wreath or wreath which what is it ref- with a t h wreath. Somebody is that somebody down in the field with a green Darrell strawberry status. Correct. You wanted to why was the St. Patty's day. That's right. It may be game used because they used to wear that. I know. Yeah. How he's beginning. The opening ceremonies where he's gonna announced the nationals. They're all gonna get booed. And then the mental be announced, rather, soon- Richardson, Manhattan. Hi, richard. How are you? I go edit. You know, Joe you said the worst day was today to see the trade metro lousy. It was sped the Holcombe around the whole mix that time sixty seventy five around eighty one was bad. So but really really went down. They went into like a five six tailspin. Back on my worst, twenty four hours with the Mets ever. Let's go back. Toby told the seven nine hundred seventy three when we had a tweet to game lead again, and we lost two games back to back. Twenty four hours stat was bad. That was game six to catfish. Matlock started game several Georgetown shooter started that game. I try should've started game seven. Seven. Get to sell. Get bombed Seaver pitched welling game six loss to catfish. Right. And Matlock gave it up actually we met. Let Gabe home runs in that game to Reggie Jackson with the camping to. Five years ago. Approximately today opening day Shea Stadium. I'm nine years old. Here's the work. We lived in. I'm walking home from school PS one sixty six on thirty third street in a story. I'm going home. And there was a borough on thirty between thirty second and thirty third on Broadway. And I walk in. I'm nine years old. And I'm watching I guess against taxes I stayed for maybe two treat that if they chased me out matching that nowadays walking home from school watching the game in a power and then going back home now. I could happen in two thousand eighteen today. That's not that's not added. A realm. The same thing would happen. You'd be there for banners, by the way. Joe? I know you're very politically, correct. What was Fisher's nicknamed the Fatman? Oh my God. Say that I know fat check fish disabled list anymore. I I know I've been vision finally agreeing could not say, you know, it is what it is. Yeah. Lynn is in Manhattan island, man. How are you? I'm fine. As usual. Great show. A couple of questions I'd not a question statement. If the Yankees will now look at the Mets and what they're doing at the plate because of Kirk flood. They'll understand situation baseball. I don't care about two hundred seventy home runs. They're praying beautiful old guard baseball more power to than my question to you is with Ronnie, darling. Probably a couple of weeks away from us at this point. He's going to continue. I mean, I know about the book and all that. But he not going to continue with their. Why are you still on doing the game doing the game taste probably couple boots away from us? They knew that they he's not doing this. And why anymore? No. I mean, he released a statement this morning that basically said he's not going to talk about the whole, right, right? Right. It is what it is going to move on. Because that story is had so much legs Lenny's doing every show in America away. In a weird way. I don't think Lenny wants if he really believes in. It's true that he never said what Ron darling claim, obviously don't want to be you don't want. Something said about you. That isn't true, obviously, we start there. But he has to love the fact that Lenny Dykstra in the news now everywhere. Two years. Definitely is..

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

And that was Saturday because as we talked about he was in our living rooms for thirty years, or so, and you know, you still may be so I'm not going to talk past tense the best attitude, right, right? And now just like Noam Laden was just saying in in the top of the hour. News report hall of fame pitcher, Tom Seaver suffering from dementia, not make any more public appearances retiring from public life of just share something on them, real quick. 'cause I you know, this this speaks for itself. And certainly, you know, he's seventy four years old nine hundred sixty nine a long time ago when the Mets won the World Series is remember my grandmother, and I'm young this was like seventy seven right. So six years old just give away my age and the Mets traded Seaver because they couldn't come to terms on a salary. He wasn't really asking for terribly a lot and he pitched them to two World Series of one one one three Cy youngs. Which is a good thing. And I just remember her the biggest Mets fan the world just angry for weeks grandmother, angry at grandma Gallagher huge met fan, and she died right before they want an eighty six to see that. But I mean, Tom Seaver in this town is royalty. And and for this to happen and get this news, you you just hate to hear that. It's just so sad. And it just makes us realize it we're all getting older Tom Seaver suffering from dementia and he's in his seventies. Because look so young, you know, it's it's a crazy thing. So that's that Tom Seaver will not make any more public appearances again suffering from dementia. His family announced today so release moving onto.

It broadly condemns anti-semitism. Yeah. I would think we'd all be against that that other forms of hatred on Thursday. After remarks by Representative Ilan, Omar she's a freshman. First woman congressman woman from don't even know what it's like political correct to say any more from Minnesota. She's like the number two behind Alexandria, Cossio Cortez in terms of people that are getting a lot of press despite being in office for basically, two months this and this kind of bad press. I mean, well, not hey, she's been getting all kind of great press eater. But she's been getting the bad press because of these expressions of intolerance and hate, yes. When you say that, you know, it's all about the Benjamins in regards to Israel. I've a feeling a couple of Jewish folks will take that events. Yes. Right. So it's amazing. And and what this is doing to the Democrats. I it's just incredible that they came into an office in terms of the house Nancy Pelosi. She's a new speaker, and they won forty seats in the midterms and you could call maybe not a Blue Wave, but a mini Blue Wave. Yeah. They have all of them in the world -solutely, this is going badly for them. I don't know how else to put it because there's a power struggle right now and all the energy and all about momentum is behind the AOC side of the party as opposed to Nancy Pelosi who doesn't seem to be able to control though, everything that's happening in terms of like, for instance, like the new green deal how does that get out into the public domain where no one even really bothered to like edited CEOs? He just threw a draft and against the wall. And that was the unwilling to work thing. For example, it Pelosi saw beforehand, right? Exactly. Instead of what you're gonna pay people are willing to work relating to work air travel. We're going to go all high speed rail. We're going to retrofit every building and apartment in the country is gonna cost not billions. On a draft. It should never have gotten out there. And retracted that doesn't make those mistakes. You could disagree with Pelosi from an ideological perspective. Yeah. But that she she's very efficient. That's the only way I can put it. So all those things happen, by the way since we bought it up..

"I mean, you you talk about the clubhouse in what attitudes are and things of that nature player that could once have been described as the next Tom Seaver a modern day, Tom Seaver in Matt Harvey as we all know finally parted ways with them. The Mets and vice versa. What do you tell perspective employers about Matt Harvey and his mental state readiness to compete in try and get back to that status of being the next Tom Seaver, Scott? Well, the the the fact that you've done it is huge in in these processes because you know, it exists. You're not you're not advocating something may happen. You've known it has happened. And so consequently with Mads case it was really about as physicality has. You know, he put his career on the line after Tommy John surgery, and and and for the betterment of team certainly won't be on doctor's recommendations with the number of innings Eddie through and the result of that was another injury where he had to have. Drastic outlet surgery and that surgery which encumbers nerves it's it just takes time player to get his command back and certainly the last half of the season. That's command came back when he got traded over to Cincinnati. You're really saw him get back to ninety six ninety seven miles an hour velocity. And but the key thing is is that the consistency with his command going forward was ever improved. And so illustrating that and getting back physically was I think he watermark for for Matt. And for owners. No. And the fact that if he has that kind of capacity physically, I think everyone knows mentally what he can do because he's already illustrated that. If healthy he can be number one for a team and take it to the places that most owners desire north Scott before I let you go. I do want to give you the the floor here on my show of subject you, and I have discussed off air, and that is the shift in major league baseball, and how you feel it is particularly biased against one particular type of hitter. And I give you the floor on your thoughts on the shift and major league baseball, Scott pours. But thanks rich. This is we've now are able to get the front row of Dodger Stadium. Pure bright, bright happy about it. I might I might add that I ever seen. I've never seen. Anyone who is behind the mic eat as many hotdogs in a game. If you're, you know, Scott those dodger, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know how you lay off them Scotto be honest. I mean, well, it it's a brand cranky. I was so impressed that it distracted me from the game credit. No, I it's a numbers thing with the shift, and that is that because of first base you can literally put four men on the, you know, the right side of the infield. And you can say that a left hand hitter. Who particularly power hitters who make their living driving a baseball hitting it hard because the goal of baseball always is if you hit the ball hard. You should be rewarded, and and that's that's the hardest thing to do sport. We wanna hit a ninety five hour fastball hard. And so these these men who have power are used to and train to hip propounder. And that's what gets into the big leagues and gives them an elite value and they want home runs. They want power. And so they're taught to to basically pull the baseball and and develop a power swint. So when they get to the. Big leagues. You always hear the everyone say we'll go the other way do the things they need to do. Well, the answer is to go the other way that means that you're going to have more likely than not a lot of pitches that have to be on the outside part of the plate that it has to be in the middle part of the plate..
