"tom seaver" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"And they used to talk about making money together. They would have kind of semi annual meetings or phone calls, how much of the Yankees offer you. How much did the Giants offer you? And they were trying to push the amount of money and they were too high to play players in baseball at a certain time. So they had that kind of that had that relationship. And then after they both retired, money was a big issue for both of them. And they both became spokespeople greeters at two different casinos. Right. And they both got banned from baseball because of it. And they got back in the baseball together. So there was a whole thread that started with their beginnings as young guys, how they interacted with each other in New York. And then later. But that was a thread that got lost because these sort of, I would say what happened is that the first day I sat was Willie. He kept using a phrase called take care of. He said this about 6 times. He said, piper Davis, my first manager with the Birmingham black barons took care of me. Yeah. When I got to New York, Leo durocher took care of me. And then when it kind of switched when he went to San Francisco, I took care of Orlando Citadel. I took care of Bobby bonds. So I realized that this idea of mentorship and to some degree fathers and sons plus even symbolic thousand sons of real fathers and sons was a real threat in his life. Going from his time when his father took him on a baseball field when he was 5 years old, all the way through his relationship with Barry Bonds now. And so that became a big thematic link I think that made it hopefully took it off the field just being a Wikipedia page of Willie and gave it some thematic substance. And so the Mickey story and a couple of other threads that kind of, once I kind of narrowed in on that, those other threads kind of got lost because they weren't as resonant quite honestly. Sure. Did you get the sense that he was motivated to participate because he wanted to set the record straight about certain things or emphasize certain things that had been deemphasized about his story or was it more of just, hey, I like talking baseball and telling stories. So if you want to come talk to me, I'm happy to do it. Well, you know, it's interesting. I never got a straight answer from him, actually, about why he finally decided to do it because he's been approached for decades. Since he retired, you know, he died at 42. And he's 90, where we met first time he was 90. And he's never agreed to do a authorized sitting down interview, like having cameras in his house, telling his friends to talk to us. He just had never done that. I do think there's something about legacy. I actually think this is just my guess. But I think that the Jordan last dance had a big effect, I think, on a lot of the major athletes. I think that's one reason magic Johnson just did his thing. I think a lot of them Brady just did something Jared dieter. I think something about that, Jordan thing, mini series made people a lot of these iconic players go like, I need to put my thing down and let people know and have my chance at the plate, so to speak. So I think that that somehow in the air, you know, that sense of these guys wanting to tell their story. So I think that played a role. And I do think that he acknowledges that he's getting older, really older, and he's the oldest living Hall of Famer. Yeah. And the other thing that happened during the years in the pandemic was a lot of people I would have interviewed for this Doc died. Hank Aaron, who he was obviously a peer of and Friends. Tom Seaver with the mets who he actually really had a close relationship with when he played for the mets. He used to call Tom Seaver's spanky as spanking our gang. Joe Morgan, who he was one of the people he really mentored very profoundly. And there's a bunch of other bob Gibson. I mean, some of the greatest players of the 60, 70s era, died right either just before the pandemic started or during the pandemic. And so there was a certain urgency, I think, on his part to get my words down. Yeah, I think that was one of the things that I really appreciated it, not that the documentary doesn't present him as complicated and nuanced, but so often in the last couple of years, it has felt like we've kind of lost our opportunity collectively as people who care about baseball to recognize and celebrate these guys while they're still alive and around to enjoy it or so often writing obituaries and retrospectives on careers rather than getting to hear from them directly and personally. So that was one of the things that really struck me is what a treasure it is to get to hear from him directly on his own life at a time when we can all have a conversation about him while he's still here, you know? Oh, absolutely. I mean, you know, at 21 of the reasons I really wanted Reggie. I just want to read you first intellectually because Reggie, I know he had played in the Bay Area and obviously with the Yankees. So he had this New York Bay Area connection. And had become a celebrity in New York. Obviously in a different era. But I saw Reggie when Hank Aaron died, Reggie gave I was a very impressive eulogy speech about Hank. And I felt like, well, if he knows Hank like that, he was no Willy. And actually his relationship was Willie was much stronger. They became very close after we retired. So Reggie was fantastic. I have to tell you a story though. So when I was a 2019 20 year old black newspaper intern in New York, I worked for the sports editor. And it was during the time of the Reggie was Yankees. And Reggie was always some controversy with Billy Martin back then. And they sent me up to Yankee Stadium to get a quote from Reggie. I grew up in Brooklyn with San Diego based on Willie Randolph. And I said, will it really, will you take me over to meet Reggie Jackson? I don't know him. And he goes, no, man, I think

"They were already sixteen games back in late jude and they were going nowhere very very fast but they were thirty eight and a half games out of the senate race less than a month and a half later and they would end the season fifty four and a half games back a full forty games behind the next worst team now. That is a terrible team. And we've talked about some more terrible teams but good teams can happen in small baggies. And that's what we're gonna talk about right here about the little world series in specifically. We're going to be talking about team. Ohio now the reason that i wanna talk about ohio specifically then obviously. I'm from ohio and it made that very clear. And but but the biggest reason is that. Ohio and south dakota for that matter. I've never worn literally world series. And they're playing each other. I'm recording this on saturday. So they're gonna be playing each other later today. i'm gonna finish. This episode are probably updated later in the later in the episode. and then i will And then i will give a preview on what i think will happen in the finale of literally world series that kind of thing but ohio's never one and they are absolutely the underdogs so just going from what they did in the great lakes region. They performed very very well in the great lakes region. Even though they lost to kentucky in the opening game two to one they then when all three games in the elimination bracket including an impressive twelve. Nothing victory of of illinois to clinch a playoff spot in the league world series and clinch a championship match-up against michigan in the great lakes finale. Now that marks the eleventh little league team to come out of the state of ohio to make the tournament and it's the first time since twenty ten it was also this also marks the fifth time that the west side. little league out of hilliard. Ohio has made the team or made the literally grilled series and that twenty. Ten team also happened to come out of that. Same little league now. They did lose to michigan in the great lakes championship but then ohio one game two of the tournament. Against one of the number one seeds in tennessee. They then got trounced in a nine to nothing. Routing california in their second game of the little league world series moving them to the loser's bracket ohio pennsylvania. Excuse me louisiana to stay alive in the elimination bracket by score of eight to two. Then they played new hampshire in one by just the skin of their teeth in a four three victory to get a chance against of redemption against california. Now i'll absolutely made the most of their opportunity there and won a four to two hard-fought battle against the west coast powerhouse to make them the little league world or to get them to the literally world series. Tom seaver final. Against south dakota and if ohio beat south dakota it could set up a rematch of the great lakes tournament. Final between ohio and michigan michigan won the great lakes game by score of nine to one now. Very good news for ohio. Is that south. Dakota as gavin. Weird kid is is not available to pitch. He threw too many pitches in his last game. Aid eight was. I mean he. He threw a gem. He threw a no hitter against them. And in fact he threw eighty three pitches which means because it was his last game he earned because of his last game. He will be eligible for the championship. Should south dakota move on now. South dakota real. It has a great team. And there's an gathered. Where is definitely one of the reasons that this south dakota team is in this tom. Seaver final or the semi-final for the little league world series but to south dakota team is very very very good. This year. It they they really are they. Actually i mean they're three it. Oh in the little league world series. But i mean they're season stats or pretty good to like li like they have They have three guys that are hit. Forty guys actually hitting above three hundred right now and one of them is hitting four twenty. Nine noah quincy he has he's he's doing a great job gavin where is also hitting two eighty. Six in years are on the on the year so far in this tournament. At least this is a very very good team. It is not a team and ohio can take late lightly but ohio is definitely an underdog eight. They won their first game and will literally world series and extra innings and because the score was zero zero against tennessee. As each team began the eighth inning with a runner on second base now. South dakota did advance behind gavin worse. Second no hitter of the literally world series but ohio has some good pitchers to ohio. Pitcher cooper odin snag to grounders off to hold off the tennessee offense an error by tennessee. First baseman gave gave ohio to score from third to end. The game and ohio went out only to be shut out by california and fall into the loser's bracket where they then won three straight games like a said to keep its spot in the literally world series. Like i eight to to win over louisiana. Then the west side little league slip past new hampshire by just a run and then got revenge on california be laid on the second time by score afforded to now starting out Starting outlets this is just the betting odds because people are horrible and they bet on all kinds of games but ohio was plus five thousand to win the literally world series now michigan versus hawaii in the other semi-final as i believe it's the hank aaron finals. What they're calling it. Michigan versus a hawaii is a fantastic game as well. Michigan was plus five hundred opening. The tournament in hawaii was the favourite to win all now. Ohio did be tennessee which was the third favourite. They were plus three fifty to win but ohio is absolutely doing a great job. Now kevin coomer has been coaching literally for twenty seven years. And according to an article written in butler county ohio's journal news coomer spent a over a decade alongside former coach. Tim niche together and they won the state title and various different literally eggs at different age levels in twenty fifteen boomer suffered a heart attack while in painesville ohio which is incredibly ironic for the state title game which he which his team was which is team ended up winning actually but nonetheless. He was able to recover in coach the team in that. Same post-season in ohio is also getting a major support because if ohioans it's next two games it will be the first team from the state to win the literally growth series and naturally the team has garnered a lot of support from from this area and the first obviously was some from ohio may.

Supposed to be your choice. The padres now visit the arizona diamondbacks tonight through the weekend. The d-box have the worst record in all of baseball. So how about a four-game sweep right.

Portrait of athletic may writing on the bag of keep them in pages of nine so everyone could see nine guys at once like these are my seattle boys. All these guys are from chicago.

A and t to join the university's golf team if he gets cleared by the end. Cw and why not. He went directly to the nba out of high school.

"Now everyone just refers to the magic. Says if we always have so wainwright himself said i didn't look at my pitch count all day. I knew it was low. But i didn't want it in my mind. I thought i had a chance at a maddox. But i did want to think about it. I just wanted to execute pitches so catechal that even players are citing and aiming the maddox. I wonder if it being named after a player makes it more likely that it's going to sort of permeate visit. You can associate with like a long distinguished career on a guy who's done cool stuff and so maybe a or it's a surgery. Everyone gets that way too i. It's interesting that he was conscious of it as a as a potential sort of achievement in the course of his start i was watching corbin burns just like car through the cubs yesterday and i don't remember which of the broadcast i put on. So 'cause i switched at one point so you'll have to forgive me there but at one point on the broadcast. Maybe this was. The brewers broadcast one of the commentators. Said you know we don't know if the guys in the dugout are aware of the record or not. But i was like i think that people in the in the brewers dugout last night. We're probably like corbin burns's thrown a hell of a family. Even if they aren't putting it in terms of a particular number of consecutive strikeouts or or what have you. I'm sure that they were cognizant of the fact that he was doing something pretty cool and special but it is interesting to sort of think about which ones of those guys become conscious of cognizant of mid start and then arcane to sort of put aside because they're worried it's going to psych them out or something so yeah yeah. The burn start was the other one was going to mention because he was. Yeah he didn't throw a maddix only went eight innings but he did it in ninety nine pitches and he struck out fifteen and of course he struck out ten consecutive batters. Ya and granted. He is going against the depleted cubs. So that's maybe not quite like going up against the pirates but at this point it's pretty close and therefore he tied the record set by tom. Seaver in nineteen seventy and matched by aaron noah. Just this year which really. In retrospect it's even more impressive. Tom seaver did that in. Nineteen seventy when strikeouts weren't nearly as common as they are today so the fact that it's happened three times baseball history and two times in twenty twenty one in not even a full season. That's not really coincidence. The only previous to fifteen strikeouts starts in eater more inning outing in fewer than a hundred pitches were garrett cole in two thousand nine hundred and jacob degrom just this year in april against the marlins so again the speaking of sign of the times. This is emblematic of the air but yet burns. What great and all ten of those consecutive strikeouts were swinging. If you wanna if you wanna assigned some extra value to that dominance so yeah that brewers top the rotations pretty special so he has thrown. Let's see his Thirty-five fewer innings. Right than zack. Wheeler has the same. has accumulated the same amount of war by by our version of war is a much better fit. So maybe are cy young race. Maybe not maybe burns gonna keep pushing there. What do you think in a An appropriate delta from an innings pitched perspective. He could. He could kind of work with before cy young voters should be like this basically. This is good enough. Yeah same break. 'cause he's also been really excellent on inning printing basis to so like maybe not quite from but like not that far so yet. It's not even like us. A bulk versus he kind of thing. I mean it is but it's also like he's been fantastic too. So i think i mean it sounds like the earliest that could possibly come back as maybe like first week of september or something and that's assuming that his latest her is clean and maybe he has steps a rehab stint so it seems like by that point he's just gonna be what forty innings behind bahrain's maybe more than that and even further behind wheeler-dealer i who's leading the majors and innings pitched so i think that is probably too much to make up and especially the fact that is not gonna come close to qualifying for the yarra title. Which you know you don't have to to be eligible for awards voting. But the fact that he's not even going to sniff that and he's going to be well behind the innings leaders. i think that ship has sailed. Yeah but i will be very interested to see how you know. Obviously we have some time left so the the difference there there might prove to be a broader difference. But i still wonder whether you know. I guess it's burns and wheeler at this point. How many how. Many i'm gonna ask i'm gonna ask a rude question. Ben okay. how many starts stood burns lose when he was on the colfax injured bust. Hell i don't know guess can have been more than one or two but but it might have probably somoza yup. Yup i mean. His fifth izzo may like a quarter of a run higher than groups. The gap is a little bit bigger but the peripherals not that far apart yep ditch and the sierra yeah some very good pitching and also just wanted to mention some good hitting that has happened lately because in recent effectively wild tradition. We talked about someone who is not hitting and then he immediately started hitting which is kinda cool if we have that power. It's the opposite of the sports. Illustrated cover jinx. Where you talk about someone who's doing well and then they slumped and they regress swell. It works the other way around to so it worked with the price harper early in the season when he went on a tear after we talked about him not being talked about and then had happened with joey. Votto and lately. It seems to have happened with cody bellinger. So in our trade deadline recap pod. We talked about tax that the dodgers lineup bolstered by trae turner. Like the worst hitter in that lineup. Apart from the pitcher on any given day might be cody. Bellinger two thousand nineteen mvp winner. Who was batting eighth. And kinda lost and since that episode. Now it's only eight games as we record here on wednesday evening but he has hit credibly. Well he hit three thirty three three seventy five eight hundred slugging eight hundred with a two oh nine. Wrc plus and he has four homers in his last three games..

How one call us beltran's to find player. He's got just go. Look them up folks yet. Kois beltran is remembered for one thing on his shoulder. then one thing with them. Is there another player. I think think about this. Is there another player that you can think of even remotely that it was that good that is remembered almost solely for one negative thing mickey on that. He's better player in mickey owen. I'll tell you now. Okay before one more thought i spit ball. Power burns's mark it's not that easily dismissed. He got all of them swinging on third strikes. I don't care if they're the cubs. Okay at some point. You put a ground ball and to play something. Ten straight strikeouts is pretty damn as and then. Tom seaver anti zebra. We are baseball when when there's more strikeouts than hits now and but still congratulations football one. Let's just want to touch very briefly on the national league east because that no great teams there but this is going to be an interesting last. Six weeks with the phillies. The mets and the braves the the the braves did not go away. They did not pack up after kunia got hurt and and here they are. And it's it's effectively mitchell bob. It's effectively a three way type. I right now. One loss one separation and losses all so. No no. that's going to be fine. It's the competition is what it's all about. And that sense whether whatever the records are whether they're teams are fighting the two teams of one hundred games or three teams fighting to win ninety. It's going to be a question for mr album. As i remind everybody that were started. Which very nicely sponsored supported.

"Is he in quarantine right. We don't know even the details of his specific case. You know if he has it and he's sick you know. Does he lose anything. I don't know but you have garrett. Cole you're all in your your your starting him. I think every start. I'm still estimating when he gets back. He's the number one pitcher and fantasy. I just think he's got that kind of talent. It is up for grabs though that spot. I think they're playing a guys who make a claim for the number one spot. One of them was amazing yesterday. You know this. He tied a major league record. Corbin burns's who i'm talking about. Fifteen strikeouts no walks. He went eight innings in that game. He was amazing. And the record i'm talking about. Is he tied the mark for consecutive strikeouts in a game with tanny tied. The tom seaver an hour. Nola record all actually said that. I think earlier this year burns just been great. I mean i have a hard time just because a workload throwing him into that number one spot. But i'm a really big fan of corden burns have been of him and brandon would referral while i wanna give them that number one right next to the ranking name. Yea any ten strikeouts in a row. They were all swinging. Fourteen of the fifteen were swinging like. I don't need to tell you about his stuff. It's it's as good as anybody in baseball. Yes i think. He's at one hundred and twenty-one innings this year so he's only going to get up to about one sixty but again. There's so few starting pitchers that are carrying a big workload this year. That yeah that puts them right up there in whether it's number one in fantasy year number one in the cy young race you know you know. Woodruff is not a surprise right. He's the guy. I had as a sleeper cy. Young guy going into this year a little more of a track record burns. We like okay. He was terrible in two thousand nineteen great. In that short season we probably projected you know obviously better than two thousand nineteen when the area was eight something. But i didn't expect this but then you see him. Pitch and stuff is lethal. This guy is going to be fantasy ace for many years to come if he stays healthy. Yeah i think he will. I think for me the question is just. How high is that ceiling. I mean if he could start throwing two hundred innings and if not twenty twenty two twenty twenty three he have a chance of being the best pitcher in fantasy. Baseball is he currently the best guy to have in dynasty leagues. He makes a claim for it. I mean what was a guy who i really liked in the preseason eleventh in my rankings i wish i could go back and put him fifth because i think would revisit that guy that ever you want five five five five five yes burns the guy who jumps ahead and it's the one you want in two years. That's that's what's exciting to me. Because he he remembered. The scots loved him when he debuted. Yeah the thing you know. He has that for arsenal pitches. Obviously he added the cutter last year. That's become sort of his defacto fastball. The interesting thing about long-term is the brewers have basically used six man rotation this year. I looked this up the other day. I'm pretty sure woodruff in burns each made just one start all year on four days. Rest so it's worked so loud now. Is this just a result of they don't want to ramp up the innings after cove. It or has it worked so well that this is now the way. The brewers are gonna use these guys next year which means high level of production but fewer innings. If they're only starting every you know six days so that's that might be the one thing that prevents him from being top three fantasy pitcher overall taking it a step further i. I'm curious your opinion on this. Do you think baseball's going more towards the six man rotation that the brewers have used all year or do you think that this is more a case of the shortened year last year and worrying excessively about workloads. You think we go back the other direction or do you think this is all here to stay. Yeah i don't know so good question. And when i pop in every now and then on these managers zoom calls and early in the year they were all just kind of like. We don't really know what we're gonna do other than almost everybody was conservative to start the year but a lot of teams have remained conservative. Like the brewers right. I don't.

Usually i mean you're waiting for the end of a game and that kind of we illuminated on boy remember that play it. Go back to james harrison of the steelers with that touchdown at the end of the first half in the super bowl. Imagine if that was at the end of the super bowl if that was the final play the super bowl would there be any play that would compare to what james harrison did but he did it at the end of the first half and it was still incredible and larry fitzgerald almost tracks down james harrison. But i i still think malcolm butler that's the greatest defensive play given what was at stake when it happened. And if you're if you're the patriots. Tom brady's face on the sidelines. He knows he's resigned to losing the super bowl he would never admit it. But what are you a yard out two yards out you got marshawn lynch and bella check basically said we want you to throw the ball where we went we want to present a defense that says go ahead and throw the ball. Don't risk running it and then not scoring and then have time run out and the fact that he told malcolm butler this is what's going to happen and when it happens you go for the ball you go this angle and to me greatest player i ever saw yes. There's this video on youtube. It's about ten minutes long as cut together of all these highlights of a group of twenty thirty seahawks fans watching the game.

When we saw each other in the press box that Riverfront Stadium, we knew it was going to be Armageddon. John Girardi, author retired from The Cincinnati Enquirer. But always, Mr Baseball. How are you, sir? Great. I can't recall the guy's name, but somebody said the R B I record for a single game. I think they beat Jim Bottomley is records something of former Red future Hall of Famer, but, yeah, it was crazy. Every night. We're down there. Check. It was never a normal night. I don't know why it is something about the DNI. A of you and I get together just created fireworks. And I think we were there The night off. Eric Davis is cycle. If I remember correctly, No, no, no question about it was really one of the highlight games that ever seen because Frank Robinson had one of those in the very fact that Eric was able to pull that off. I mean, he was the type of player that way would say. He's going to do this, and he sure as heck did, But it was still so exciting to watch out that night. No doubt, no doubt. And John when you hear the words, Hank Aaron, Man, what are some You can't talk about him without Hyperbole. I mean his records when he retired, he had the record for records held. I mean, the guy was just amazing. Yeah. I mean, he think why I know it's number one all time until the basis, But the incredible thing is he's 722 total bases ahead of the number two guy. Was staying usual and that's two or three Good seasons. So you know so many great numbers with him. Chick One of my favorites is number one and runs an RB eyes. He's really a good base runner. Much better base stealers and people gave him credit for On when he went into the Hall of Fame in 82 with Frank Robinson. My gosh, she got 97 20% of owning the only guy that beat that in baseball history until that time was Ty Cobb. And, of course, Tom Seaver and other great to passed on last year, he cooked them all before Griffey Junior took the top spot, but My gosh, Everything he did was great. The longevity that consistency and my favorite thing with about him was in that game. That career tying home run since today. We're Marty made the call in his first year is a Reds broadcaster. So a lot of fun memories of Henry the one thing that I am proud to say that I didn't get to talk to Henry that much. But for some reason, I was able to get ahold of him. When when Marge Schott was up to her, you know, terrible racist comments back against the 92. Henry Henry Aaron was the first guy to call for his call for her suspension. And sure enough, I mean that story. That time I wrote it. Was kind of buried in the back of the paper. But by the time he came out of Henry's mouth, and it was getting around the country, it became a top story. So Henry was the type of guy that even we may have been eclipsed by Willie Mays in terms of the showmanship and the flamboyant to me. I mean, you could make a great case chick that this guy's the greatest baseball player of all time. You certainly can. And man he did it with gosh, just with with grace and dignity, and just there's a nobility about the guy. That, uh, man I can think of like Mohammed. We hand on a Hank Aaron. Wow, The list is the list is pretty short. It's It's interesting. I think Cincinnati fans would appreciate this is that The only difference really, between Frank Robinson and Henry years his longevity. Henry had a longer career. But if you look at their 162 game averages, they're right. They're right about the same so and when you think about it, I thought picture today. Clemente Aaron. Amazing. I can't. I can't imagine a better All Star all field in that and then you throw in Billy Williams and Frank Robinson me. No wonder Vada Pinson made so few all Star teams. He's playing against those guys. It's It was incredible era and of every mall. You could make a great case that Henry was number one no doubt and the ties that he had with Cincinnati and the Reds. Just amazing his debut against the radar in a game that Joe knocks all one in six and a third innings of relief 98. Three months before I was even born back in 54, then his 3/1000 hit at Crosley, the first home run hit in Riverfront Stadium, and 7 14. Cincy. It's incredible legacy that he left. I know he loved hitting. You know it. Crosley Field in particular that first game he played here and 54. You mentioned Knoxy. I think Knox he mighta hit Andy Pafko on a pitch. He got away and Henry Held that against Joe. Even though the pitch was not intentional. It shook up every little bit of his debut in American League, a National league. He sees a guy carted off on a stretcher, so There wasn't any love lost between he and Knoxy. But Certainly for connection to a city, uh, outside of Atlanta and Milwaukee. How would argue this was that's hitting ballpark, and, uh, Owns his greatest achievements, and you've only got to look at 7 14 to realize that no doubt about that. And how about 3771 hits? You take away his 755 homers and that's still 3016, which would last 29th all time. There's a whole chamber without the home runs. Yeah, I mean, that's the thing about him. He just happened to hit 7 55 balls out of the ballpark. But he was in everything hard and And that's what I like to bawling. His doubles total is incredible. And I think it was through five lifetime hitter maybe higher than that. So you know again, like Frank Robinson, just a great pure hitter. Hit the ball hard, almost all the time. And 7 35 just happened to get out of the ballpark, But yeah, he He was the kind of guy e think, he said this one time. Maybe the Lonnie wheels a great late since in a sports writer. I think he told Lonnie If I had to buy a ticket for one game I.

Had, uh, may's play to the more hitter friendly ballpark E the Polo grounds with a huge center field when he came to Candlestick and the prevailing when you knocked down the right hand to pull hitter, so he had a It opened up his stance to hit the ball out to center and right center is amazing Hitter to go up like that and still had 6 60 so But, yeah, I mean and Scully He said so many great, iconic moments that he's called in his career. But you gotta understand. He's the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers. There. That home run record was set by an Atlanta brave and I know at the moment it's supersedes. The color of the jerseys and the team you're working for, but got his call was great. Milos was more about the significance and he nailed it. There's a new home run king of all time, and it's Henry Aaron, but for Scali to get into the racial Tension and you know, and nobody says marvelous the way Vinnie says. Marvelous and it was just such a In the event, Scully's finest moment, and he's had so many the co fellas and it was called a co faxes.

I was going through that hell that he had to go through. It was almost, you know, taboo topic to even talk about what he was going through for most of mainstream America, but for Scully to bring that up, and to have the enlightenment of it During a Dodger broadcast was just incredible. So what a loss. What loss has been a hard year plus losing all these baseball hall of Famers. But today Not just the baseball world, the sports world. I think the world world because of the significance. Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier and 47 But in 74 when Hank Aaron, you know past Babe Ruth, that that was a huge, momentous moment in this country. You're right. And you know there are There many great sports figures, but I don't know. I think there's a handful that when they pass away as a sportsman, you just stop and he's one of them. Willy will be one of them. I mean, there's just that's you know, Kobe last year was one of them. It's just When when these kind of things happen, no matter what the agent in Kobe was far too young, obviously, But no matter what the age, it's jarring as a fan, you know, toe lose these kind of icons. Like this morning when I saw it. It was like, Whoa! I mean, you stop all death. Most deaths are Very tragic. But, man, When you see something like this, it's like you stopped for me to go. Wow. Hank Aaron. That's what I had this morning. I mean, there's some people. You think they're gonna live forever. But you know, they're not. And they are gonna live forever. Henry Aaron, you know, playing right field for the Atlanta Braves is gonna live forever in my mind. You know, it's just It's never gonna go away. They're never going to die. You know Tom Seaver without dropping, driving his knee on the mound. Tom Seaver's never gonna die in my mind. It's like great musicians. You know, they transcend time, their work and their body of work. And that's so great with you, too. But you never saw Hank Aaron play. You can go watch a lot of games. Get the MLB at bad at they have classic games up and I'm sure they'll have more today. Very bonds just sent out a tweet. A very nice thought on on Hank Aaron rest in peace. Hank Aaron, a true baseball legend, and then a couple of paragraphs on him and No for us in the Bay Area. It resonates because it was bonds, who broke His mortal record of 7 55 when he pushed it out. And, uh, He didn't remember. Aaron did not come around, you know? Like Lou Brock traveled with the A's and Ricky broke his record. And the whole Bud Seelig divide and when, when Berry hit the home run to tie him 75th 7 55 in San Diego. But stealing was at that game in the way but still exploring to this seat and was obviously in anguish. Because he was tight with Aaron, and he had it. You know, he had his own fingerprints on on that air of baseball that tainted by bond's legacy for some But remember, they had great moments on the diamond vision. And the last one, they say, because it was all you always wonder. Would you know what Aaron show up and what he'd be there when you meet him at home plate? You know how How would you do that? And There was a very powerful about a minute video tribute from Hank Aaron to Barry Bonds when all right after types. Great call the number 7 56 off of Mike, Basic basic. Classic T o to break the record, and I know that one meant a lot to bury Bond. So very did Send out a personal treat today and they on the passing of Hank Aaron. And that's the one thing in fact that I just saw Tom House who, of course, caught the ball. Hey, tweets out, Hank Aaron changed my life. The greatest greatest moment ever. I got to be a part of catching 7 15 That moment bonded us forever..

"tom seaver" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM

"Hear and Hank Aaron interview, But Hank has just passed away at the age. Of 86. He joined us this past April, and we thought that instead of talking about him about we go back when we talked to him, so in about 20 minutes from now. We will bring this to you The last interview that we did, and that's many interviews over the course of my career with one of my idols. Thank Erin who passed away the age of 86 last five months. Some of baseball's all time greats. Ass away. Tom Seaver, Lou Brock, Joe Morgan, Bob Gibson, Don Sutton. And now And Karen will get phone calls as well. 8773 d p show. Email address. TP A damn. Patrick dot com Twitter Handle at DP Show BIG football Weekend We don't have an updated status report on Patrick Mahomes, but I would probably exhale. If I'm a can city chiefs you got a lot of reps in practice and probably will be medically cleared out of concussion protocol at some point today. Now we're more than two days away, so it's plenty of time he's still able to get in his reps. That's what I wondered about during the week. If he was going to be hampered in how much time he would get with the first team offense. Here's something to keep in mind in the regular season. Nobody allowed more completions, too tight ends than the Buffalo Bills did. Travis Kelsey is coming off a record setting year. Just something to file away when we look at that offense, and if you go, I'll be damned. Travis. Kelsey is open all the time. Now. Not that Buffalo is going to go. You know what? We just can't cover a tight end. We'll let him have his catches. They're going to do their best to try to stop Travis Kelsey Easier said than done. But Buffalo surrendered more catches, two tight ends this year than any NFL team and one of the amazing things about the NFL's how closely match these teams are. The lines are hovering around a field goal for both of these games this weekend. And you never know. I always feel like there's one close game. And then there's a blow out so many times of funny bounce a mist past changes, everything and legacies are defined by the thinnest of margins. When you think about Tom Brady He won six Super Bowls. Look how close he was to winning other Super Bowls. Look how close he was to losing Super Bowls. It's a fine line. Because he could have beaten the Eagles. Marie could have beaten the Giants. But then you look back on some of these friendly bounces or Adam Venit Terry with clutch field goals you had you know the tuck game. When that should have been a fumble. They shouldn't even gotten to the Super Bowl. But this is how legacies are built by the thinnest of margins, and I go back to Patrick Mahomes. We're all ready to say it will be one of the great quarterbacks of all time. Go back to the regular season when we thought he dislocated his name go back to the postseason when he was behind against the Texans behind against the Titans. They ended up winning those games in the Super Bowl. He's down 14th quarter. Six minutes to go. Jimmy Garoppolo completes the pass. San Francisco is gonna win that game. Chris Jones knocks it down the slightest of margins there. So you have Patrick Mahomes, Josh Alan going toe to toe. And then, of course, you have Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, a trip to the Super Bowl. Hangs in the balance. I said to Todd, there's a couple people I'd love to hear if they were able to speak about Hank Aaron, the former commissioner, Bud Ceiling, who was a lifelong dear front of Hank Aaron's And also Bob Bucher. I thought that those would be too great people to have to talk about Hank Aaron. And then I said to Fritzi, you know what See if Johnny bench would join us. Because it feels like Johnny's a member of the show. And you know, he also was there he faced on sudden. But, Hank, you know what? Hank Aaron hit 7 14. He was in Cincinnati. And Jack. Billing him was the picture, and I believe Johnny was behind home plate for that home. Run that Hank it and then he goes to Atlanta and then hit the home run off Al Downing 7 15 year Upon a couple years ago, the topic of changing sports names came up and I'm different baseball teams. There's an article written about it. And the Great Atlanta Brave Dale Murphy tweeted out, always felt that hammering Hank had the hammer was one of the coolest nicknames ever at the Atlanta Braves ever consider a name change make it the Atlanta Hammers who As one of the better ideas. If that situation we came to pass I've heard in a while. Yeah. Yeah, I wondered about it, and I think Johnny was behind the plate when when Hank hit that, But I remember that Hank was going to sit out. Then Buoy kun, the commissioner said, No. You're playing in the game. Because Hank wanted to set the record in Atlanta. And so Hank played and then hit the home. Run off, Jack. Billing him. 8773 d P. Show. Email address. TP A damn. Patrick dot com Twitter Handle at DP Show Robin, New Orleans. Hey, Rob. Thanks for joining us. Hey, Danny, I I sure also don't want toe bring down the mood or anything, but I grew up outside of Atlanta and, um Henry Aaron was my first sports hero and actually got to see him play and Fulton County Stadium and I have had many disagreements with people over the years about who the greatest hitter that ever wasps. Itwas and a lot of them were from Boston, and I said Henry Aaron. Henry and look it up, and I've always appreciated the fact that you championed him. Um So thank you, Danny. And Ah, Sad day, but go hammers. Yeah, um Aye. There's nothing dramatic about him. No, he he lacked flair. But that's not who he was. But he was. You know, in that group with Mickey Mantle on Willie Mays. You can't be any more flamboyant than those guys were the way they played. Hank just went about his business. Hank never hit 50 home runs in a season. Yeah. But back then, if you hit 30 35, you are power hitter. And if you look at the effortless swing of Hank Aaron now there was the launch angle. There was no, you know, you know he was a 300 hitter for his career. Hank had this ability to flip his wrist. He just flicked his wrist. And somehow somebody at that size could hit the ball that far and hit 750 home runs. Let's bring in the hall of Famer Johnny Bench, You went toe to toe. I'm sure with Hank quite a few times and I don't know when you got the news, Johnny, But if I'm bringing it to you now I apologize, But I thought you'd be a good person toe have on Well, actually Dan alive. I've got all of a sudden flood of text and Henry and with you, no eyes that are crying and it's and I said, No, Don't tell me this. I mean, I'm just absolutely worn out from This is our ninth personally, years and with them the years time and you know what Don Sutton and Lasorda and I mean Dies, Hang out with in Palm Springs and then I thought, Man, this is just getting too much and then on and I just sent a picture to Fritzi and I hope we can pull it up..

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

Giants need win, help to reach playoffs after loss to Padres

"There were 7 18 7 wins 18 losses against teams that were over 500. If you look at all the playoff teams there, eight wins 20 losses. How far can these Giants go? If they do get into the playoffs? 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.

Why Tom Seaver Is The Greatest Met Ever

"People perhaps too young to have seen it and to have lived through it. How would you put into words what Tom Seaver meant to baseball and particularly in New York in the late sixties and the seventies? Well. He's the greatest met ever and there is not a close second. He's for me one of the ten greatest pitchers of all time when you look at his wins, his era and his strikeouts, the only pitcher in history that can match those numbers is Walter Johnson whose regularly considered the greatest. Of all time top seaver struck out ten batters in a row that is still a major league record and they were the last ten hitters of the game showing how strong he was at the end Greenie I was twelve years old when he pitched the mets to the world championship in nineteen, sixty nine it was absolutely breathtaking to watch a pitcher who threw that hard with that kind of precision and the way he threw that back news to drag against the ground. He was so big and he was so strong. He was Tom Terrific in every way he was he was like a superhero in my youth. I grew up in New York and I wasn't met Fan, but you couldn't not not only admire him but you're almost all of him. He became almost mythical figure you can. We talk about that a little bit not not just how great pitcher he was the numbers tell you that story but just what he meant in an even larger sense than that, how would you put that into words? Well he was so much a celebrity in New York because he was so smart he was. So worldly, he did the New York Times Crossword puzzle every day and apparently nobody did it better than he did and he never took himself too seriously Dick Schaap told this great story one night that Dick arranged a party out with a bunch of people, a bunch of writers and a bunch of celebrities. And among the celebrities were Muhammad, Ali and Tom Seaver and through the night went along alley. Brilliant Mad. But not a great baseball fan whispered to Tom seaver which newspaper do you work for Anti seaver like burst out in laughter that's how great he was at understanding his place and everything he said that what he retired, he wanted to become an artist, but he wasn't good enough to be an artist.
