"And so you know as short-lived as far as my enjoying my time on the field but Yeah it's a moment I'll never forget you. Did you get the baseball that was kind of before that became a regular routine of getting the baseball's yeah no? I I didn't get it I didn't get it Who KNOWS I I don't know it probably would stayed in the game. That's the way it was back then but I never thought about getting it either but you know Cherry Been Nice to have gotten it. What a store. You got Later on when you became manager of the Padres of course the the best player on your team at that time was Tony Gwynn. What's a story? You like to tell friends about Tony. Gwynn you know just beside you. Know is is his talent You know where he meant for me. in my purse. You're managing Tony night play together And so we became pretty. Good friends. We both live in power away. The you know at one point he. Fishing was his passion. That's that's one of mine and So we had done some bass fishing together and then we golfed and so you know we were so are pretty good. Friends played cards and so now. I'm become a manager NASLUND different. He's he's going to be one of my players But unfortunately Gino and we had that strike in ninety four and that carried in the ninety five which was my first year managing so my first year mansion. I've got replacement players and I am not comfortable doing this and Rainy Smith who hired me He helped me out and he said. Listen if you think. One of the coaches should do most of workouts You know you know. Let them do it. I get it because I didn't lose credibility Yeah with my players when this thing when that stripe is over so Tim flannery he picked me up there and he ran most of the spring training to be honest and and so when it ended Strike and we get the season going again. Tony was the one that you know really helped me. As far as saint just on the players less I know bocce. He knows the game. He knows what he's doing a help you know give me. Credibility as locker was right beside my office. Era The old Jack Murkier or qualcomm and And so you know. That's that's what I'll never forget 'cause I think there were at that time two or three players they they kinda cold for. You. 'cause you were supposedly working with these replacement players but You know he He really picked me up there. But you know there were times when we talked about As teammates yeah he. He'd go. He just knew what pitch he was going to get. He would tell you in the dugout. He's GonNa turn slider here and I'm GonNa do this with. He would do it. You know I'm GonNa hit that pie hole because you know he's GonNa he's GonNa keep throwing me away I it's just incredible at this guy could do with the bat and he made me think about him. Boches is that with all the batting titles You know that he won. It still felt like in the midst of his career. He got better because I think based on conversation you had with Ted Williams. He really learned to look for situations. Drive the ball. Oh no question and you're right it them that you know Ted. Call them out. Basically I still remember You know that evening John. Moores is house He had Ted Williams over and in fact had the first time he saw Mesa. I hear you like to fish. And he says What kind of flies are you Do you Tie The ted. I don't five if you don't fly fish but you don't fish in. I mean he just so intimidating and he was the same way with Tony about hitting and And he got on Tony about you know not hidden inside pitch and doing damage with. Because that's when you make your living you know you should be hitting the ball over to five. I five five whole Tony. You're great hitter and You know anybody can do that. But you know but you can hit the ball out of the park and you should start looking at drive that pitch and And it changed Tony and But it didn't take away his average either it just Tony Woods. He's just one of those players is great players. You know they just feel like they never have a ripe wonder it'd be better and that was Tony. He was so driven. Be The best hitter can be and he worked on that inside pitch to where became natural. They throw it in there. He he would turn on it and started hitting home runs and driving the ball and was a better hitter in And I you know he's probably looking back going. You know what it's like. What did done that earlier in my career probably would have three four three four hundred home runs. What do you remember about his relationship? Tony's relationship with Barry Bonds someone who you at the at the end of Berry's career you got to manage because it always. Those two guys had such a special relationship. It almost felt like a little bit. You know the way that you'd hear about Larry Bird and Magic Johnson and it was that way exactly like that goes through is such a tremendous respect for each other. You know what they had accomplished into game in Completely different Hitters and completely different philosophy which amazes me You know 'cause I as I I managed bury my first year and Tony was the guy you know he. He really believed that. You know the bottom hand underneath not the KNOB leading the way and Berry Woods. He talked about a top in catching the ball. He Tickets Tom. Pan On the bad. Until I aims. Amazing I look into it a bit sitters in our era and And they had different philosophies and they were different type of hitters so that played a part in that but now they just always talked hitting always got together. Talk Baseball It was EMC two of the greatest that Tremendous respect like You know bird and magic and guys like that. Tony always love to tell the story about how during batting practice one day bonds came out while the padres are taken BP and and badges riding him about his bat which you referred to you know the PEA shooter because it was so small and he said very grabbed it out of his hands during one round and then proceeded to hit about eleven straight balls is of course bury a left-handed hitter into the left-field stands in and just flip the bat away like throwing a toothpick away. Amazing Amazing Guy. Wait what he could do. you know. There were times in Neo because he knew I had Tony in spring training. Goes you know I can be what Tony does you see pie hole and he would just hit ball after ball right there in that whole I remember one time. You gotta go go. Mvp was you know hidden and triples alley there in San Francisco and And he was complaining about how deep it is. They're very you're you're you're stupid evening doing that. Why why are you doing that? This what you want to do and Berry would take it and just flip it in the Senate over the trail. Nine downright till nine. So you know you're looking guy that's all time home run leader but also had just incredible back control. It things he could do with it and in back when he He tied the record I still remember he knew clay. Hensley was gonNA throw the ball away on those sinkers away. It was in San Diego and to BP that guy was thrown BP extra two day in and my ball had a little run to it as white throat because it would be similar to Clays and sure enough you know. He played zone terminent sinker. Way might take it out to the field and he did so. I wanted there a million Madison bumgarner stories Tell me your favorite one that you like to tell people about Madison. Where my favorite Well I am positive for a second. 'cause I can't tell my favorites bear hunting trip. I swear to secrecy on that. And hopefully he'll let me tell it when when day but On the baseball side my favorite of course two thousand fourteen and Incredible run that And that he had personally You know between the wildcard game and of course what he did in game seven but it was after game five. Just shut up the royals and I had switched it a little bit because I just felt like we had to go and Kansas City up against down a game so because I was taking some heat for not pitching them in Game. Four and then Starting game seven and but Abolhassan start game four against their fifth starter. I wanted mom. Garner Pitkin chills. Anyway short ends up He shuts out Shuts out the royals. And you. You know now. We're going to Kansas City where three to work game away from you. Know being a world series champions and and Guys are you know they're to pack. 'cause WE GOTTA GO TO KC GUMS in my office. He goes you know. I just WanNa tell you if you want to win this thing you're GonNa put me out there you're GonNa start me and it's a start you win. He goes after his day off. He met game six. It's I'm not starting one day's rest. He goes on to win this thing anyway. We're starting game sits six. We wouldn't say Save Them for game seven in the pen you know. He'd be the guy that we go to as a long guy in And I said WELL NEAL I. We haven't set you know. Set to pitch in game seven right now. It's Hudson and he and Hoodie. Were very close. They really became Not just good teammates but very good friends and he looked at me so now. Now you gotTa Start Hardy I. I want him to start his gang. But you have me ready. You want to win this thing. Of course you know what happened there. So it's as Just the guy that had his maniacal focus on winning the world series when he was going to hold back on its feelings no he pits twice as many innings more than twice as many innings than any other pitcher in that postseason on any team and yet I think he told me one point that after you guys win game seven It is one of the most amazing postseason in baseball history. He finally acknowledged that he was tired. Yeah yeah he owned to well. Of course everybody was because emotionally. You're tired mentally. I mean it's just you talking about every pitch every play on the line and And of course with him you know we. It's not like we gave cushioning pitching with one run lead and of course what happened in the ninth inning You know with the two hour triple when he still has to get one more out because I could see a warming up but I I all I remember when he came in after the seventy eighth inning. I wasn't a look at them because I didn't want to look me and say I am because he you know he was our horse in about so well but Yeah he he finally owned up to it. But you know what I I'll say to me. It's the greatest pitching performance and postseason Because you know it hasn't been that long since we've had had you know we've had two extra games a wildcard and an extra postseason games. No-one's pitch at pitches many endings. Jake peavy is a great storyteller and he told me a great story about Bumgarner new that I've never asked you about and I want to But I I want to check it. Check it out with you He said that the the reason why you want two thousand fourteen the world series. He said there was a moment in the dugout. You guys are playing the dodgers late in the season. He's losing his act cranky toodle one and his spot in the lineup is coming up in the eighth inning and according to Jake he said you know you go. You basically let them know you're going to pinch hit for him. And he's lobbying he wants to bat because he loves to hit. He's down Iran. It's a big game against the dodgers and you're saying this is according to Jake. You're saying I know I know and then Madison. After hearing that a couple of times goes you a talking to me like you know and then you let him hit that. Stake story what What do you remember about that close? I mean it was close You're probably embellish that just a hair but that's J. Cuts. You know what it was a situation where he was her best and I thought he He earned that right to hit. But originally I was not gonNa let him hit Because I want to look after them too. I mean it worked hard but he was one of our biggest threats and And that's what I I I remember that really Made up my mind but you know what this go bomb because he he deserved it and he was one of our best threats he was one of our best clutch hitters. I'm telling you this guy. When you need a big hit or even a homerun. Somehow he came through for you impact. I my kid all the time now because you know he's not not the hitter he was because he's trying to see how far but that time he he knew how to sit on the pitch and So anyway yeah he yeah he was. We're going back at it back at each other a little bit. But I had made up my mind a he's GonNa hit and I told rags out in I said he's GonNa hit but I'm GonNa have some fun with this. Tell me your favorite first time you laid eyes on Lintz come and whether or not it was there any party. You is You know somebody who's been in baseball longtime wondering if that was gonna work that unusual delivery well. I bus started first time. I saw two thousand seven which was my first year San Francisco. I still remember Spring training I mean it. Was you know a lot different You know because I had some years in San Diego. The giants were team that we had to be and that was after the first meeting. That you have with your team and So yeah I'm heading out to the field. I'm with Dave Righetti and And they've goes rags goes. Hey by the way there's your number one.

"Ball. And no Dr Aaron waiting out the beep straightaway fastball. Better deal clock Marvelous Marvin for baseball marvelous moments for Atlanta and the state of Georgia. What marvelous moment for the country in the world a black man is getting a standing ovation in the deep south or breaking a record of all time. Baseball idle added a great moment for all of us and particularly for him rearm. Yup that's right the anniversary the day when Hank Aaron Broke Babe. Ruth's all time home. Run Records April Eighth Nineteen seventy four. It happening Atlanta Taylor. I was ten years old and you know I told you. I grew up on a dairy farm. So I'd get up early. Four thirty five o'clock to go to the barn every day and I fell asleep before that took place but my mom wonderful late mom who really was the one who got me interested in baseball because she bought me a book on Sandy Koufax when I was eight years old. She left me a note on the kitchen table the morning after and she described it how what happened and Hank Aaron broke babe. Ruth's record and she just had one sentence and it said. The crowd cheered and I always think of finding that. Note the morning after and being so excited about About what Hank Aaron did. That's so funny. I you know as soon as you said like you fell asleep and that you're you started saying your mom in my first thought was what my parents would do is pop in a videotape and record something on TV and that just wasn't an option back in the day no and we didn't even have television. She listened to we. We had nothing but radio until I finally overpowered by parents wanted his fifteen and got to watch some got to watch the world series on television. Wow Different Times speaking of legends. Today we're going to be talking with former giants manager. Bruce Bocce Future Hall of Famer. He's got tons of stories and a strong feeling about whether he wants to manage again and stories about. Pete Rose Tony Gwynn. Buster Posey's ten. Let's go Madison Bumgarner Paul Hembekides will join us. Because he's got stuff on Bruce Bochy in the aftermath of reports that Major League Baseball on the Players Association have been discussing a plan to begin to play in Arizona in May Major League Baseball issued a statement which went along these lines. Mlb has been actively considering numerous contingency plans that would allow play to commence once the public health situation has improved to the point that it is safe to do so while we have discussed the idea of staging games at one location as one potential option. We've not settled on that option or developed a detailed plan while we continue to interact on a regular basis with governmental and public health officials. We've not sought or received approval of any plan from federal state or local officials or the players association before we get to coach in. Have you talked to Hembo about the quote Unquote Arizona Plan? Check out the latest episode of the Bill Barnwell. Show Barnwell is joined first by Todd. Mcshay as the to discuss the process of scouting quarterbacks than Bill Connolly joins Barnwell to breakdown. Joe Burroughs writes from transfer quarterback to the likely first overall pick. Fight it where we get your podcast jumping into the numbers. Valuating millions of leases data in league playing the avs Cincinnati by do bites. This is Hembo knows. Hembo is palling bikinis a researcher at ESPN D- He is a on the show. Get up he tells us he's the head Honcho. We've not been able to confirm that Hembo I can tell you. There are a lot of theories around baseball yesterday that That that story about the potential games being played in Arizona in very specific sites having bio dome type situation with fifteen hundred members of teams basically locked down to play a bunch of games. There are a lot of theories around the sport yesterday that that was a trial balloon and I think it fell flat. What'd you think I I get the same sense not dissimilar to the trial balloon. It floated just a few weeks ago prior regarding the new playoff format in some sense but to stick to the point. Here buster. I I would say when I read the headline. Mlb plans for May start in Arizona. I guess my first sort of Cynical reaction was or the also going to announce that they're releasing a vaccine because sure because short of that. I don't know how on Earth could happen then. I read the piece and after reading the piece. I think the way I would best describe. Their plan is way overly ambitious. I think that's how I would describe it to be clear. I like the thinking I like. The fact that they're willing to think creatively and outside the box and radically differently because these are unprecedented times. And we know that. But when you boil all the variables together it seems extraordinarily unlikely to me that they could pull anything close to this together. So those are I was supposed to be a fourth generation pharmacists. Okay until you gotTa Diene Chemistry. I talked to my dad yesterday about this. He said he's a scientist at Astra Zeneca. He was fooled by the plant. He he describes me as irresponsible. He thinks it is unfathomable to think that people could be playing baseball as early as next month. His best guess is late in the summer. Which is I think more in line to what you know the rest of us are hearing and to to to put it as clearly as I could and chatting with him in in reading some other Science on the matter what would have to happen. Essentially as everyone would need to be tested in order to get this improved like all everybody. Fifteen hundred people like you said which would be close to impossible given the current testing Climate and then those people would not be exposed to anything and to be able to control the behavior of fifteen hundred human beings over the course of four and a half months. I think is is next to impossible. I I would agree with you. You Know I. I wrote a column on Sunday about how I understand. This sort of reflexive push for sports leads to get back and we saw after nine eleven how it came back and it was. It was so healing for for New York and for folks around the country to the distraction of baseball and other sports which is something the White House really wanted and the White House right now. You'd probably want that. But there's one enormous difference between the stituation after nine eleven the situation. Now you made reference to it. You can't tell the players that you can keep them safe. You can't tell players you know that you're going to protect them and I tweeted out over the weekend that if I were a player by first question would be about this bio dome idea. Are The owners? GonNa be in there to our donors going to be in in in with us and taking the same risks short of that I wouldn't entertain it also say this quickly. The there are two things that weren't mentioned that piece that I think the first thing they said suggest after I read it. One one about the minor leaguers right. They weren't made mention of once. We just GONNA as other careers in the seasons at the very least of all these minor league just a wash and secondly major league baseball would have to make spitting punishable by fine like this. That is one of the one of the ways in which is most easily transmitted. Imagine watching baseball game without spinning. That's another that's another sort of a caveat to this that I thought was interesting and probably worth bringing up when we finally end up having this conversation in more. I give me some reflections on alkaline. The hall of Famer but more than that and you. You saw the reaction after. He passed away to what a great person he was. Yeah Alcohol Caitlin was One of the good guys. He was my grandfather's favorite player. My grandfather rooted for the Detroit. Tigers grew up in North West Ohio and so I got to hear lots of stories about alkaline and and revered is probably the best way to put it like. He's he's one of very He's a he's a rare breed one of very few people whose asked anonymous with the city for whom he played as anyone in any sport and it was so refreshing to see the outpouring of of love for my. I read an extraordinary Open the Detroit. Free press with extremely an enormous detail and it is you know. We talked about alkaline as a player just last week because Jim Kaat spoke so highly of him as a player. On Your podcast. But there's a few things that really Stuck out to me about alkaline. Buster's the player first of all was honestly remember him as being prodigious to sign a contract that they after you graduate high school and then appear a week later in the game is a pretty extraordinary thing he remains to this day. The youngest player to ever win about about title and I think the the best story that I read. That really speaks to who he was as a person was in nineteen sixty eight. He missed as you recall a lot of time with an injury and the Tigers went up in the world series that year and he volunteered to take himself out of the lineup despite being their best player and instead they played on four hundred and the world series and was bigger reason why they wanted anybody. But that's the kind of person he was. He was Unselfish to a fault on those he never wanted to. Mvp He he's a person who I think he was very much overlooked In some sense in an base in in the in the scope of time period baseball because there was dominated by the Yankees but a tremendous person a great player and it was nice. It sort of has his to see his moment in a more time this week. It was sad but it was. It was refreshing. Yeah it was one of those reactions. Though is absolutely universal that people really liked him and respected him for the type of person that he was. We're going to be hearing from Bruce Bochy and his second. What was your biggest takeaway from the interview? Which we we sent you a sneak preview of it and he was talking about Tony. Gwynn the Tis. Tony Gwynn stuff was extraordinary and I have to admit that I didn't ever study Tony. Gwynn's career in in in the sense sort of broke it down to before and after. He embraced hitting for power. But I was overwhelmed with the number that I saw. And you'll hear Bruce Bocce an interview talk about this so in the final eighteen career. That's ages thirty four. Through forty one he talks in a five hundred slugging percentage. That's the exact same. Slugging percentage as Fred. Mcgriff did during that time just for some context number fourteen percent higher than it was early in his rear went theoretically he would have been hitting for more power and to provide a little bit more perspective on on what that is it a player of that age or or older thirty four older the higher slugging percentage and Ken Griffey Junior Mel Ott Reggie Jackson Willie mccovey posted and the seasons. And as you'll hear Bruce Bocce say he did it without sacrificing power buster during that time. Twenty Gwin batted three fifty six only up for a higher batting average twenty when after the age of thirty three as you said. He got better with age when he gets truly embrace it for a little bit. More power and spitting on the baseball. And I'M GONNA I'm GonNa Bring this up and I didn't tell you this coming. There's one swing that I vividly remember. Vividly remember illustrating this point. Buster the game one of the Nineteen Ninety. Eight world. Series threw a fastball. His fist and Tony Gwynn sputtered around a hit off the third deck and got. It was a rocket I if I felt like I hit the deck. Like three seconds that. That is a swing. That best illustrates the hitter. That twenty Gwin became. And obviously as you'll hear that There was Ted Williams in some sense that inspired him to do it. Yeah boats tells that story about being in the same room with Tony Gwynn. Ted went my goodness. I can't imagine how much I if you ask for. Charity auction having someplace how much money would generate..
"tony gwynn" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"All right. He has promised. We're going to get to spend a few minutes with Tony Gwynn junior. Tony had had an outstanding career around major league. Baseball was a good outfielder. Now, he's working on the Padre broadcast. And of course, his dad is is Mr. Padre, the lake wait great. Tony gwynn. Hello, tony. Tony doing today. John gray. I is it safe to say there hasn't been this much excitement around San Diego with the signing of Machado until your dad almost hit four hundred. I think that would be putting it very lightly. This place was absolutely buzzing yesterday. I mean, we have down here from two three to seven. We were talking taking phone calls literally from twelve o'clock throughout the entire segment of our show. So it was a huge day in this way. Fans are extremely happy. You know, what I was gonna say. Did you get anybody that called in because we have giant fans here that will say, well, no, it's too much money or let's build for the future. Whatever the hell, you get anybody that complained nobody not one person complaint, and the funny thing about it was prior to the signing. Your prior to the Padres evening being mentioned in the Harper Machado sweepstakes. There was a lot of that that sentiment that you know, we should stay stay. The course, you know, with the young guys let them come up and as soon as that should that. That deal went through and people were. We lost him. Machado. We're talking to Tony Gwynn junior on the guest line is a great follow on Twitter at Tony Gwynn junior. Tony, you know, I think your father was the greatest hitter. I I've ever seen right there with Wade Boggs. I mean, those two guys were just unbelievable. But I just listening to you a couple of these answers, you sound an awful lot. Like pops to do people. Tell you that. Yeah. I pretty much daily especially when I'm at the stadium. So I tell people I I can't I can't really control it, nor do I really want you on that. Well, hey, you know, this is an incredible addition for the Padres. He was a lot of people are looking at this going. You know, this doesn't make any sense, especially because a lot of the northeast media are disappointed that Machado's not a not playing in another part of the country. He's way out here on the west coast. But I think what people are sleeping on is that Logan white and AJ prelature have put together one of the best farm systems in the game and the the Fernando Totti's June. Seniors and orient. And so so many of these young players are coming to the big leagues MacKenzie gore and other young pitchers two years from now the Padres could really really be exciting. But you think? Oh without question. I think people know Logan light, but Logan white put together those all those dodger prospects that you're seeing at the big league level that logo. And he's been able to put together some tremendous draft classes, emanate, April or have really done a fantastic job with the farm system. And you starting to see some of those guys come up. Tony out. All right. Guys with me for just a second there. But go ahead. A little better. Now. I was saying that you know, frame mill res- tremendous second half as year hundred rental tremendous. They can have last year you're going to need to see those guys take a step forward. But without question Padres have have put themselves in a position to where they can they can make some noise come by twenty twenty twenty twenty one. All right. Let me ask you this situation. That giant fans are going through here. Giants projected down until you guys sign Machado down there. They were the Padres, of course, near the basement how much of this in your estimation was done just to help sell tickets. And yes, the team's going to be better. But a move designed to just say, hey, we gotta get up off the deck. No matter what it costs. Dammit. Let's see get Machado or Harper for the fans. I mean when you spend three hundred million reportedly, that's that's gotta factor in a little bit right box office is what I like to call it. And I just think it was a combination of a few things I think the west in general is is not going to be as strong as we've seen in the past. I think the dodgers have taken a step back. I think the dares on damage is definitely taken a step back. The giants will probably be I'm assuming were they were last year around there. It's an agent roster. But you know, so the goal with that part alone along with the fact that this is a once in every wet fifteen years that you'll get a free agent that is twenty six years of age and at the top of the top of his game. If the Padres weren't playing well next year guess what you'll be twenty seven twenty eight to following year. You still got five or six prime years of Manny Machado, even if it doesn't happen this next year because he's got a five year out in his favor. If I'm not mistaken, correct? That's been reported. He has what would you tell if you were running the giants, and they say we only want to sign five year deal. I don't wanna be on the hook for ten years in you know, in case Harper just is good. But you know, they're not beating down the doors to to see a five hundred team even with him. What would you tell them right now if they didn't want to extend past five years old? Oh, I would tell them that probably ended up with Bryce Harper. I I assume that much because based on you know, reporting out there. He's got some deals out there that. Great. Name in the right money. So if that's the case, I think you're kinda you might be eliminating yourself from a white accent once every fifteen year type free agent that could do some damage for a very long. We're talking to Tony Gwynn junior on the gas line. Poggioli Padre signed Manny Machado yesterday. Surprising. A lot of people in baseball. I will say this. I like the way prowlers building this team. I mean, you're going to spend big dollars. Don't spend it on pitching spended on develop pitching and spend it on. Hosmer's Bennett on Machado. These guys are relatively safe compared to any pitcher just because they were position players who have linked, you know, they're to play ten years, but I can ask because I'm looking at this roster behind the plate. You know, you guys traded the reliever for Mahia the young catcher from the Indian is a tremendous hitter. He's a switch hitter. Because also of Austin hedges, who's a pretty damn good catcher is Mahia gonna wind up playing third base. Or do you think prowler oughta outfielders on this roster? Of note, maybe six major league caliber outfielders. Do you think Keller's got a spring training trade coming Tony this spring where he he starts kind of changing this roster around even more than he already has? I think there's going to be something happens by the end of spring training. I mean, you have six major league outfielder stood only three positions out there. You certainly not going to carry six on the big league roster. So my guess is that don't make a trade at some point. Oh, it's gonna be think spring training is going to determine you know, who's who's the odd-man-out for from that standpoint? There's still some Spanish word the Padres can improve for this season. I find it hard to believe that they were gonna go completely young with their rotation. Because some of those guys close enough, you know, they're they're going to be on innings limits. So it's gonna be tough to get through a hundred sixty two with the young staff that they have I from third from the third base standpoint that that's I believe it'll be Manny Machado eventually this season. 'cause I think to tease won't be in the minor leagues very long if at all. And if that's the case that is going to be your shortstop. And I think Machado be basement that was an incredible parade by the way, they did Padres. Got talk tease junior. People don't know for big game James shields. It was a tremendous deal a deal. Recon the GM of the White Sox ruse to this day. I could ask you the last year, and we joked about this with some of the guys at fan fest. Tony we're talking to Tony Gwynn junior on the line will Myers was complaining openly are playing four night while he was streaming about Andy green. And of course, it was since he was streaming. It got public and he had apologized, and there's been trade. Rumors surrounding Myers has they kissed and made up here. They move as Myers stone the trade bloc. What's going to happen with Myers coming out of that? Or is that is that all, you know, by we'll let bygones be bygones, I think they were able to kind of patch it up at the end of last year. You know, it happened at the end of the year. So, you know, time apart will kind of allow some of that stuff that hill everything that I know they plan on we'll Meyers being there leftfielder this year. And I did. And I personally think that the Manny Machado citing helps. Nobody more than than we'll Meyer. Well Mars can now be allowed to kind of slide in the background. Just go out and play baseball. No longer has to face the guy answering questions he can lead that now air Gaza. Many silently he can just go play ball, which I think when he's able to do that just think back to the last year he went to the all star game. I mean, he had just enough to know that lineup Matt camp in that lineup and he was able to flourish and make his first all star game. He stays healthy. I expect him to have a big ears for the bottom this year. Again, go back to a fit here with Harper in the bay area. Always hero San Diego is it's it's a tough place for sports because there's so many other things to do people. Just don't sit down sit home and watch your or listen to baseball or or other sports. I'm just curious. Did you have you noticed or heard of a bump in ticket sales? Just within the last day. I heard a little bit of a rumblings about it yesterday. When I got to the studio for the raiders some folks we're talking about out of Padres ticket sales have gone up. But here's the thing. Considering you know, how poorly they play the parties have done. Well, in attendance. Considering that. So I can only imagine based on everything we heard yesterday from call phone calls. There's gonna be nothing. But more people come into these games this year for the Padre and more people watching and listening to him that follow suit. Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. Listen, I. Oh is box office. And from the time the Padres were mentioned meeting within the second time, you can kind of feel the fans getting antsy about it. Now being that I've been here by tire life. I I was a little pessimistic about it at first. But once the numbers leaked out on Sunday, my thought process change 'cause there hadn't been any number leakage at least in the Padres standpoint at any point during the season. So at that point, I kind of felt like it was real. And based off of what we heard the people we heard from yesterday. This was a tremendous gift for the Padre now seriously. It's a good good thing in San Diego for sure, by the way, my favorite restaurant connected to a ballpark has to be Oscars Mexican seafood in the left field where at Petco that I think they got a couple of them right there. That is one of the best that is one of the best restaurants. I've ever seen connected to have you frequented Oscars. Mexican. Seafood at all freedom with it every time, I'm at the state in which is why I gained so much weight there. That must be a good feeling. It is good stuff to go through life. And who do you love more than your mother and your father, and to know that almost one hundred percent of the people in the world. Love your dad. Yeah. Yeah. It is pretty cool. I to fill it every day. I'm at Petco park. And and it's it's a blessing. I it's it's it's hard to you know, really explain to people. But it's certainly something my mom, and I my sister cherish anytime. The MLB network shows the hour on Mr. Padre. I mean. Yeah. I would encourage anybody to go back..

"Pieces are basically hit pieces. The hall of fame ballot. That's not a hippies the who should be in the hall of fame. And I'm right about all that stuff. Sure. You are. I am the ballots anyway, Derek jeeter next year. Who wouldn't vote for jeeter? All I know is this the only reason that guy's getting one hundred percent of the vote is because people out there are cowards internet bullied, if they don't the only reason he's gonna get unanimous vote is because he played in New York. And he and he played in Kansas City. He's a no name no names have three thousand hits he has three thousand singles doubles. But he you're right. He probably would not be unanimous though. I've actually Jason had a great pizza at the athletic, which of course, Bill rights for as well about the how everyone thinks the same. Now. I mean, Jason wrote a piece he thinks part of it is because of the transparency of voting there's never been a string of years where so many guys get ninety percent or more one also stuff like like Ryan spiders, dumb where he he's effectively got Tim Raines in the hall of fame campaigning. He's the campaign that stuff like that's why I think a Braise going to get in. I don't think Bob raise a hall of Famer. But like his numbers are of Tony Gwynn summers. And Tony was I bound hall of Famer I think I'll put it this way body of Brady will get a lot more votes next year, then he would have gotten if the same same numbers appear in about a decade ago. And also like have changed the hall of fame voting is kind of boring now because you can look at a players war. And determined all the arguments. Well, it's Bobby Bryant. He's got a sixty war, which is it's not quite up to hall of fame standards. But it's pretty darn close. It's it's it's closer than you think the player himself was gay just smashed the bell. I just I just saw gave Kappler smashing the bell at the Sixers game.

Sometimes there's a ball outside. So the cat is to panic. In the hall of fame and deservedly. So who's a Tony Gwynn be hitter? Fastball inside I guess when Gwen came along. And you would have said Tony Grandy kinda reminds me a little bit of rock Karoon. For me. When was the Karoo is the hardest to defend you just didn't know where to plan. So you end up playing straight away. Three two pitches. Popped up found out play off to the left. Karoo sometimes he would bug his manager. I remember when Bill Rigby delayed Bill Wrigley was the twins manager. And charisma has come up with two down in the basement empty, and he'd he'd want. And cruise thing with hey, we have a couple of power guys. It's good to get on base. Rickie did not like it. Three to pitch ground ball the first right to to carpenter.

Michigan state for that high flying wide open split out Pac twelve not so much with the game's tonight. Let's get back out to the guest hotline right now and our good friend. Brian Oxman joins us once again, Brian. What's up? Sorry to interrupt you with your beautiful musical going on tonight. Well, Jim Nelson told me that it's a one game suspension for the first man card violation three games for the second. One more one more the common, they put the bracelets on me. And I do the perp walk because it's a lifetime ban. Well, you know, a permanent revocation I've only given out I think to permanent revocations man card revocations in my career, lots of violations only to revocations. I'm I'm blocking for for it. Well, Bryan, a sad story and one of the greatest hitters in the history of major league baseball was Tony Gwynn. And also a great guy with my pleasure to interview a couple of times and couldn't have been a nicer guy. Many went on to be a college baseball cards, but throughout his college and major league career he was used to chew tobacco and wind up killing him, you wind up with mouth cancer, and he wound up dying from it. And now his family is suing the tobacco company claiming that he became hopelessly addicted to the tobacco and they're blaming them. Now is this a good case is this a winnable case for the Gwynne family. Without a doubt. And they are going to get a big settlement. We don't know how much the settlement is four. But in two thousand ten there was a settlement were the tobacco companies paid five million dollars to a North Carolina man who said that he had used tobacco for some thirty years as exactly what Gwynn has done here. This guy died at forty two win when he passed away was fifty four and what happens he started using it thirty years before he died. We didn't know about the danger of the school and the Copenhagen where you put a little Scotia between you're cheating your gum as the commercial said. Well, it gives your mouth cancer. That's what happened to the North Carolina guy. Tony, Gwynn dot salivary gland cancer, and the experts say it's from the tobacco, and he had no choice, but to keep using it. 'cause he was addicted his family's gonna get some good payout here. So the tobacco companies defense be well, nobody forced him to take it. He took it on his own free. Well, and you know, that that's the that's what happens may say. It's not our fault that he has his own free will and he didn't have to take this product. That is exactly what they say. Nobody's done to his head. He wanted to use it he could've stopped. If he wanted to this comes from Al Tura group, which is the main tobacco company, which is the owner of US tobacco smokeless tobacco. And Philip Morris. Really gets the outgrowth of Philip Morris. They changed their name to alter they have pervaded this kind of defense for years. And it hasn't worked the juries simply do not allow it. And the reason they don't allow it is that there's all these memos from high place executives in Philip Morris, which says we need to increase the amount of nicotine in our products because it addicts the user, oh my goodness. When the jury hears these memos read, they get furious day, but just get furious and the tobacco companies lied for years and said, there's no there's no medical evidence that the that that tobacco causes. Cancer. Correct. Correct. And the jury also here's this cop and bull story, which the tobacco companies pervaded for years and years, they have made these awards to people who can prove that they were in fact, addicted to tobacco and that they had no choice Tony Gwynn's family as saying exactly that he tried to stop. But I can tell you that addiction is pretty bad. I mean to sugar and the carbohydrates. I don't care how many people tell me don't do. It. Don't do it. I still do it. Dave. And I can imagine what Tony Gwynn went through. But you go to Malibu colony Brian Oxman, all those beautiful beats houses all up and down the beach, and Malibu, and you see lots of MBA players. They're beautiful women. They're beautiful woman. There. You got yourself a deal. Maybe I'll go maybe I'll kick this habit. Yeah. I wish I could find one who owns one of those homes would take me in Brian Oxman. But so far no goal. But Kevin Garnett's one of the guys who owns one of those beautiful, man. Down there. And now he's suing his wealth manager a guy by the name of Charles banks the fourth from Atlanta. He says the guy stole. Are you waiting for this seventy seven million dollars from Kevin Garnett? Wow. Holy macro. Look, I never saw an athlete who didn't get their clock cleaned when they turn their money over to their talents into their wealth managers. They're just begging for seventy seven million dollars. Now, what happened here is that this Charles Bank pled guilty, and it has been sentenced to four years in federal prison for bilking San Antonio stark, Kim Dunkin out of millions of dollars, but why stop at Tim Dunkin? Let's do it to Kevin Barnett. Well, the guy's pretty much broke. Now, so suing him doesn't really make much sense. So he's suing Michael wartime and the walking CPA firm, which is the cows. And he says there were supposed to be the watchdog watching over this. They were supposed to warn him. But no, no, they didn't say anything that they had knowledge of this. They knew about it, and they checked their mouth shut, you know, how many times do we hear this over the years, Brian and athletes have to get smarter about this and two guys who have been very smarter Shaquille O'Neal and rob gronkowski of the patriots. And both of them say they've never spent one dime of any paycheck since they've been professional athletes. They live off the endorsements. They put the paycheck in the Bank. And they don't have any financial advisers of h I put the money in the Bank. That's it. Boy, we hear so many sad stories about these guys get money stolen from them. They they put too much trust in these guys mind, they signed power of attorney over to them. And then they get robbed every time. Yup. Without a doubt. And I've seen it happen. So many times. The accounting nightmare that the Italians do what they do is. They find themselves a shell corporation where they hire the corporation for management advising for advertising and the money goes out to that show corporation, which is really their their brother-in-law. You can't tell if you're the athlete. What's happened here? All this money has gone out for promotion for you. And you don't even know that your pocket is being picked. So these guys are smart. They know how to do it. They literally passed the book around, and you can learn how to build an athlete in a second. And that athlete just doesn't have the slightest clue say, you know, buy a nice house you've earned it with your great career. If you're an athlete. Buy a nice car take care of your family you other than that. Brian don't make any money in the Bank. Don't put make ready investment. Just put every paycheck in the Bank. You'll be set for life with. Tens of millions of dollars. Yup. I mean, he's got a guy named Michael Kendra? Who was a linebacker the Cleveland Browns? She just pled guilty to insider trading. This is the exact thing that we're talking about. He said I met a dog from Harvard. He seems to be really good. He was from Goldman Sachs when he told me he could make some money. So I gave him ten thousand dollars, and he gave me insider trading chips where I made one point seven million dollars. Well, that's really pretty good return on your money. The only trouble is he got busted by the Securities Exchange Commission, and he is just pled guilty to insider trading, and they said Michael kendricks on the Cleveland Browns is looking at twenty five years in jail. What do you think? The odds him doing jail time are. Not likely not likely after a member. Martha Stewart was charged with the same thing. She did for obstruction of Justice. Her sentence was a year and a half. I would suspect that this guy is an aside. Profile probably looking at twelve months, he probably will get paroled out about eight months. So yeah, he's going to do a little time. But it's not gonna be this monstrous twenty five years now. And he was cut by the Cleveland Browns. Do you think let's say he does a year in jail. He's still young enough. Do you think he can know he'll get a contract with it with an NFL team? And he can get past really don't think antibody gonna touch him. Once you're convicted. I mean, the real sentence here. It's it's it's not so much here. But he might spend in jail or the eight months the real booby prize that he's gonna get is nobody in the NFL is going to touch him. I mean, if you take a need nobody wants to touch you? Apparently if you take bribes or insider trading. I don't think anybody in the NFL. And even think about Michael Vick did a couple of years in jail and was signed in back in the NFL for for for the dog fighting scandal. That's true. But he was abusive to dogs. I mean, Donald Trump is abusive to dogs he called autumn Orosa a dog. I mean, you know, so what did something of this away some things out away? And the answer is that nobody really was back to upset. The pita was upset at Michael Vick. But the ordinary population still wanted to see him. And that's why Bryan I I wanna talk to you about diamond gate in the next next segment. All poor. Man and his money as soon as they're afraid the great Brian Oxman, how for another segment sports in the courts, the taste with your NBC sports radio. Your NBC sports radio update starts now.
