"Tweets already buster bleacher tweets for a mundy ahead of the postseason. Pk steinberg wrote in over the weekend. And he said an interesting photoshop of you me and a couple of bleacher. Twitter's jeremy tear meany t. jones and pk and it's it's titled ensch wink. It is our faces over the 'n sync album cover And he basically says he says thanks for a great regular season meet in swing and ensign cover band a hashtag man behind featuring buster taylor jeremy jones and pk bus or do you feel slighted that he made me justin timberlake in this graphic. I i lead the bleacher. Tweet segment but i always think of you as the jt of this. Podcast is that reference. I totally get it. You are the You're the bottle for pk. And whether or not his bleacher tweets or read on air so you can understand why he gave you credit. I and you know what that said. I'm gonna break off as solo act as soon as this. Podcast is over fair enough. Let's go to brian role at brian. Baseball five. Brian writes in new. Cba pending of course. But do you think robbery and marcus. Semi-in resign with toronto. They seem like integral parts to that team. I don't think simeon will sign with the blue jays. Look i just have too much around the edges about how he wants play shortstop and how he preferred to be in the west coast. I have not heard that markets directly. Maybe that's That's not online. But i'm hearing that from a lot of different people i do think they'll re-sign robbie ray pay what it takes because he was so good for them this year absolutely. Let's go to our guy. Reggie deal at baseball deal are irradiated high buster when evaluating the twenty twenty one performance of teams. The following clearly seem due for manager changes. If not more. Padres and mets and in my view. Perhaps the phillies do agree. Are you surprised. The rangers orioles an diamondback. Stay the course. I'm not surprised. Phillies will stay the course. It looks like joe girardi i. I know there's some speculation philadelphia. I think the wind up keeping him. We'll say they're obviously going to be changed with the padres. In the matt's a sh- the rangers now not surprise based on stuff. I've heard not surprised about the orioles that we've talked to the podcast. It's not about brandon. Hide the struggles. In recent years is not about any players on the team. the diamondbacks. It was a little bit of surprise because they let go a lot of coaches in season or they made some coaching changes in season that usually signals as we saw with the pot grays that the manager might be hanging on the edge whether or not to be replaced. The orioles have made the manager position obsolete for the moment. Paul fran much. Paul friends at paul france rates. And how do you know when the issues with the bolton are due to the pitching versus the way. The bull is being managed. Yeah it's a great question And it's funny because you. Oh aaron boone. At got a lot of scrutiny over the weekend for some his managerial decisions and then on sunday there wasn't a peep about his managerial decisions. And their way he uses parade of relievers. Because it worked out. I mean usually tailored he'd agree with everything is seen through the prism of whether you win or lose. Lose your idiot if you win. You're the greatest ever I do think in terms of bullpen decisions. A key factor is how often you use these guys. You have to have managers who are disciplined in terms of holding back and not overusing relievers especially early in the year and i know they're evaluators other teams absolutely believed that that was a problem with the padres that they relied on their bullpen. The same guy is heavily early in the year in by the end of the year. They all kind of fell apart. Let's go to cody. Cody the matthews rates in whoa. I've waited patiently for a week but still no answer. Buster casually dropped thoughts. That mike trout will be playing left field next year and a podcast last week. What is the rationale here that trout as he gets older as we saw with torii hunter when trod came on They'll eventually move him to corner spot. And the merger brandon marsh as an excellent defensive center. fielder I think makes that more likely that it's going to happen sooner rather than later. So next year in spring training we hear from joel madden or maybe during the off season at that What they're gonna do with trout. That would not surprise me at all and mike. Trout is a lot like barry bonds in that there's so many elements to his game that you know mung the best ever throwing is not one of those skills that he has throwing as the weakest of all skills last one for the regular season matt at kayaking. Smith rates in buster taylor. Thanks for taking us through another great season. You guys are awesome. Do you have a favorite moment or stat from the season that you'd like to talk about today man. I'm just going to use this opportunity. Say thanks to everybody who listens and thanks the bleacher. Twitter's i love doing this particular segment every day You know getting feedback talking about what you guys want to talk about. So i i'll throw it back you Mad as we go forward this week send in a stat that you want us to talk about Because you guys all did that so well. During the course of this year i love that buster. I agree with your sentiments there. Thanks for everyone who writes in each and every day we love the listeners. We could not do this without you. So keep sending them. In as the postseason progresses hashtag bleacher tweets on twitter. Please follow rating. Review this podcast..

"So there is a different dynamic. And i understand that but like rimmer says zoellick's ridiculous musings about Newton hit every stereotype that black quarterbacks face. They're not serious not smart. they're unfocused. I my question to reamer who will not join us. Blue join us and according to a makarenko. That's because he's a what did you plus hosts. Yeah okay yeah. He's he's really not he. He has a job. He doesn't want to lose his job. Do you think that people just go get another job. If you're alex reading can wait tables and make more money career. He's a writer anyway. I'm gonna. i'm defending that far. But not defend this all right. Hey questioned for your reamer the guts to sit here and answer for me. But now you're protecting your phoney-baloney job. According to him so he's watching practice he thinks a newton's distracted he thinks the music and the dancing is part of it. Is he supposed to say. I can't say that because someone took a dump and bill russell's how sixty years ago I can't say that because you know the boston. Red sox had racist General manager and they invited all the white players to the to winter haven but not the black players. I can't say that because you know. There's an road named after tom yawkey in boston. And you know we don't want to deal without again. Talk to them bringing up. He mentions adam jones who we pretty sure lied. It least we have never heard any proof that Actually mentions torii hunter torii hunter. It was the most ridiculous story of all time. He said that he was at fenway. A group of kids chanted the n. word in a group of parents cheered them applauded them. Obviously it's one hundred percent made up jesse. Small let story has more credibility than this but people like alex and not just alex. You know all kinds of them. I'm sure if the globe ever gets around to this still start. Mentioning torii hunter and adam jones. Make people who make stuff up. He's mentioned kyrie here too. It's the racist raving again. Kyrie so superfan celtics superfan with a a believe kevin garnett jersey. Who spends all his money just to go to games and cheer on. His team is team of a bunch of black players. He's racist because he threw water bottle at kyrie irving who's the beast dick in the league. Everyone admits he as kyrie irving. And that's supposed to be about race just because irving says it was. Why do people fall in to that trump. Why did they allow that. If easy thing for him to write it's easy because you'll get twitter twitter applause from it. Well that's why. I think he's a coward for writing. This is that he just wanted to use this to to to talk about boston. Being a racist city again. He wanted to do that It's zolak from western. Pennsylvania zolak played me. Nfl played for the patriots. He sees something he comments on it. He's supposed to think about. Oh the long history of you know bussing and south boston. And and for that reason not supposed to criticize cam newton. It's just so bizarre people fall in line with this ridiculous deadspin narrative of you know it's boston we can't do that. We can't criticize the black guy. Even though he sucked last year he was terrible last year. And but we're supposed to protect him you know. He wears funny hats and gives people funny nicknames. And he's a good teammate. he's a good guy. He's a lousy quarterback. So lex job is to point that out and one of the things he observed was. He doesn't appear particularly focused. This by the way was coming off a cova. Da on suspension sideline because of kobe restrictions. Got the wrong guy to test. And he's unvaccinated because we know that he s we're mask maybe that's maybe the media will turn on him for that. Not for dancing. Can you do that. Can you criticize a guy. For being unvaccinated. What there are a lot more black people or unvaccinated than white but also like was doing making a comparison if he didn't do that there's a. There's a quarterback competition in zolak. Isn't making a comparison between the tour to quarterbacks. Then he's not doing anything like what is he going to talk about talking about. I mean and and so he supposed to see that. See a distracted quarterback see guy. Who's you know not getting the job done. He's not making good throws he looks. Unfocused says you know you should probably stop dancing and start focusing on football. And that's racist honest to god so if it was like if he said it was jon bon jovi or whatever country music and he didn't mention the word wrap with epi okay. I think i think he would say yes. Which is ridiculous good and and again it's just these people go. Why did he have to go there. But i'm sorry. It's his job in We do. We really have to go there again. No you don't have to go there again. You could say yes he either. You can say yes. He is distracted or no. He's not you wanna criticize. Oh fine save. Newton is not distracted. Newton this helps him when he dances and sings. That's the way some guys do it. That's how they get ready to play you. Don't say oh he's black. You can't say that it's absurd. I'm glad the wolves didn't get there. The pound of flesh zoellick gave the phone apology and survived. There was on the game last night. I soon he'll be back on the job today and going forward because he did nothing wrong with the apology. Though i didn't even hear it did you. I heard it. But i couldn't grab because i heard it this morning on the reality of the situation. They say you have to apologize and you can go back to work if you don't have to suspend you. That's what happened. I mean at some point. We're going to start pushing back against this. I that's what we did for the last twenty minutes. I mean someone who is in the crosshairs he needs to stand up and say like we can't defend him there and we'll push kid rock member kid. Rock was on tape colin people f slur and he said you wanna poll good luck you never get in it and there are others but general leader position do that you know. I love that people. Like i was on with adam corolla and he's talking about how we have to stand up the cancel culture. I told the story of why. I could cancel all we have to stand up to cancer. Culture it's easy for adam corolla to say he's he's never been in real hot water. He's never is bosses..

"Curtain ten percent of your first month so i mean amazingly in the i don't want scott like to get fired or suspend not at all not not not i'm glad in the crafts clearly are fine with these doing the game. I think tonight Good and life goes on and he said something stupid and he owns it and life goes on as it should But again the old double standard. If i said this jerry said this the boston globe have op-eds the be writing about this for and as agreed the one thing i grew my friend. Chris curtis who clearly felt the same way. Curtis did a pretty good job now. Curtis was kind of in the end davis right. This idea that will brady. We'll bring you the best player. Ever so i usually throw the brady thing so curtis kind of fall and curtis kind of into the you know. I'm a white cannot really understand though that bullshit but Where he was right as the globe literally. Chad finn ab- i saw His tweeted one syllable. Somebody asked if he knew about it. He said yes he is. He's renewing isn't tweet ending. i know of. He's tweet a baseball card story. He wrote like twelve times over the weekend. So he's he's been around he's a media critic and a guy from ninety five. Did this and again ninety five in bed with go. Ninety eight five you know is has has a great relationship with the globe So you're not going to see that. You're the op-eds from rene graham shirley leong at the globe or any of these people calling from either. Be fire cabin. The pastor this sort of negative culture thing da da. Nope none of that. It's embarrassing for media critic. It's fucking beyond embarrassing for me to cook. Not even right right which you're right. He shouldn't be fighting in the thing is he's a topic because this is sort of liberal guy who always does this stuff jerry. Something like this happens where he would clearly. He wouldn't believe it. But you clearly save your jerry. Here's racism same thing happens. And he doesn't write a fucking word about the toxicity. Sports radio in the masculine white privilege. And this and that none of it. Dead fucking silence. Tweeting about tops. Ninety six like you might as well be fucking. Tj hubbard is the fucking beating. I mean it's unbelievable. Unbelievable cars embarrassing. I it's fucking embarrassing. Well he the weird thing is that He more than you'd be different. I also feel. He probably doesn't think zoa can't should be fired so he won't right that they're not allowed to say. Hey guys this one is not that bad. It's not a racist. They're not allowed to do that. Don't they stay out of it completely. And he's a media. It's this twitter bio i believe. He's the media critic for the sports media kirk for the boston globe. A huge media figure in the city was part of a story that went national like absolute national blew up one guy wrote about outre-mer who i thought rosa is a friend of i thought ruin embarrassing call or is it the old fashioned same. And he said this thing. We're just in this. Courtesy kept saying and jermaine wiggins apart. It just brings back the old you know now you have to have this conversation again. And we don't the and johnston didn't happen the toy hundred thing torii hunter weeks adam jones like fucking beacon of truth. We're all chanting ten. Kids were chanting in their parents are cheering them on. I mean it's a fucking live guy gets on the lie. Greg show show. Jerry wiggins is on and danielle was like. I don't know why people want proof idea they sitting him. It's a fucking embarrassing. So now i was. Did she thinks happened bill. Russell sixty years ago fucking they right. People use the n. Word in boston. Yup using tulsa. I ha- tacoma yup. All over the place. You bet so to me. This doesn't make things. The the the guy from pennsylvania was on the field of practice. It said something has nothing to do with the history of racism in boston. It's a fucking reach. Its and then people like these. Same people like alex. I'd just don't wanna talk about the same. Yes you do. You're happy when this stuff happens. Cut the fucking shit. You're happy when this happens. And you know. I like alex but you know you. You've never come on here. He's a fucking afraid to come here because he's a corporate stooge boy he's a little corporate fucking entercom pussy says a friend saying i like alex arion isn't he loves the show. I love alex. He'll tell you he's corporate ties for all his sort of waving his arms and doing his thing he sitting here saying you know he's trying to pretend the torii hunter thing happened. Like your fucking and you say that. Again torii hunter's claim was ten. I believe ten. Kids were chanting the n. Word fenway park and people in the stands in their parents were cheering them on nodding funding stupidest fucking bullshit. Ever heard my life. it's i the frustrating part is just how much of a reflects it's become now like there's no passion bided now. It's not like fuck scott zolak. Let's get him fired. It's like you hear cliff newly. It's racist and then i'm sorry then we just move on is gone mike. I get ninety five credit. They handle the very well now. It's gone. I mean look it it sticks to him now of course when he tweets something always have before people savior racist but second. I really matter. I searched just his last name to see what people were saying. And it's like people that obviously don't know who is would. Oh scott zolak think about this so it's like that now you've put that reputation on a guy who's never shown of racist bone in his body that i know you know go on graber but i'm just i read that massacre fucking suspending. This bullshit again like you're the one that's continuous narrative. Not not us like not you guys write these stories. You guys talk about adam. Jones like it happened or torii hunter. Like it happened to your. Somebody's experience in one. Thousand nine hundred seventy eight. Like i don't know i i. You know nor does alex nor scott zolak chat finn. Chris curtis nobody fucking knows. I was just going to say nobody really of value winning on scott zolak over the weekend. Oh no huge name. No because everyone likes him in ninety five is protected. Like that's how it works. That a comment. If we're being on it doesn't matter. I know this is the most. That's that's relevant. That does you know we were. We were killed killed for coal racist. Because we didn't think that somebody called somebody. The n word right like that. It was in locally fifty times bigger than yeah but even that i can at least see how they can twist it into. Oh you're saying like black people are lying about their experience or something. I don't think to black people have lied about jones. I'm plenty of hurt. I'm saying it's an easy twist to be like. Oh i carry everything which is a fan of refund. I get the fuck we doing. And that's more sensational because it involves the n. Word where this is like. Hey turn down your music. It's fucking ridiculous that it even became a thing. I the guy said optically..

"That was good. That was very good. Voices key does a very good still white banker voice. that was very subtle voice. Oh hey you're back in town more. yeah i'm just. I'm just driving the streets of the fall. Five freeway i actually. I actually was Downtown i'm gonna be doing my show from the la pc this week. And i was doing some sound check stuff. And i was driving from from down there. Solid check to make sure everything is okay at three in the morning On monday in so mab an attorney into seventeen says you know figure out. Let's see what they they're talking about his force before head over to how little park casino later on this evening And i haven't listened to to people that. I loved me. But i but i won't smack ramona but i'm gonna smack you upside your head ireland. Okay tell me why. Defend scott zolak in. Tell me it's got zolak is in the right. He's underwrite making those rap comm comments wearing. I know he's in the wrong. No he loses job. I don't care about all the council coach or whatever that stuff that does not mean we. I've had the fortune enough to be on the east coast over the last year. Pay very close attention to the new england patriots and the whole east coast more works. I understand what boston is understand. What the seniors. And i understand what certain individuals are who tried to play it up I watch scott zolak in the booth in the first game. The took the field in how he was jumping for joy and screaming on every single throat. It makes it seem like. Oh my god only almost has just trying to create this drama. Why scott zolak seventy saying. I have no idea but i do know it is coded language and it. It is saying something. It's like if not jones plan metallica or one of those groups. Would we be saying that when we say we say he should. He should know he shouldn't have said it he was wrong. Was and i'll let you tell me if you agree that we live in a culture now where everybody's going to go for this job. They're going to call his head. And i think that when if you commit a crime or if you're harassing women or if you're doing something illegal you gotta pay the consequences for that but i think zolak policy is i think he made he made a stupid observation. That makes no sense cam. Newton used to play music. he made asks of itself. Right is what he did. And i i told him and i told somebody day memorial in in ireland. Yeah when i see you. We don't have a side conversation conversation. I'm going to in to check minos in his business when i see him personally. You're not gonna see him. Because i'm going to go to a couple of patriot games. I just wanna know. Were you thinking man. Because my joe's arrived music to you do understand that right. Yeah and camac mounted on it earlier in the year and cam newton has always had a fun time at practice. Everybody's personalities is different. No one person's to see so. I just want so what i heard you guys talking about it. Let's get to my guy in my girl. I can't have out there. Universe naked and not really really really focused. Didn't know what it is by the way. Hey jolts start jorges play the short version of zolak said because a lot of people are out probably out there driving around and this is what what he called in about. A scott zolak was making an observation. He was asked the question. What could the patriots due to make cam newton life a little easier. And here's what zolak said. I turn off the rap music first of all because i get distracting for cam here inbetween. Every dancing i did dizzy. Greasy into the herald tweeting about that as he took the field between drills. You're saying he makes it through these still crack. You could hear faintly background here. And he went on to say that. Mac jones a lab. But i hear you. Yeah he went on to say. The mac jones appears all business and cam is paying too much attention in the music. And he's out there dancing. Use the right word key. Momo used it earlier it's coded it's very racially coded and he shouldn't have said it because it's a bad look and you talked about the history of boston. This is something that we had. Torii hunter the show one morning when you and i were working together and tory said he had it put in his contract that he can never be traded to boston because he it was tangible to him that would he felt when he was in that city in the outfield that that there were racial overtones that he didn't want or his family to deal with so so zolak. Better apologize and if he doesn't key i think the i think the roofs gonna cave in on him but i don't think he should be fired. No i don't think. I don't think you should be fired. He didn't it was coded winning. Which first of all. He didn't blatantly. Say anything that would make me. I know what he's saying but it wasn't enough for him to lose his job over and i'll be the first to say if it was egregious enough in the lose his job. Yeah he should apologize and maybe go further to explain exactly what he was trying to very. Because i'm i. I i don't get how you are in the locker room for me is that you were a backup quarterback in the national football league in play with. I'm assuming a majority of american minorities on your teams that listen to pop culture top lap. Be on the field and in the locker room for you to say that. But i also know that he is pulling for mac jones to be the starter which isn't going to happen. No matter body came news starter known about a holiday screen. How they kick. Joe cam newton screws it up. He's shorter period yet key. You know what. I when. I when i see it. It's like it's every stereotype and every bit of coded language and so what you said about him. Rooting for mac. I mean it's so it's like how people used to root for tibo and it was like okay. I see what's happening here. It's not you know we can all but there's a there's a part of me that says this is why i don't really like cancel culture. Either i feel like talking about it out loud and calling out. Doesn't that do doesn't that do more. For changing this type of stuff and educating guys like zolak than just firing them does now all of us around the world to me. I always think like okay. It's like he's taking a lot of heat right now and whatever part of him. That had no idea of how. How stereotypical an offensive. That that type of description he was giving was like he. He should understand it now and if he doesn't then now we have a problem. But if you don't understand it if he didn't understand it before this you should understand now he understood it. I just don't think david them because that's what they do.

"Toronto. I'm going to start off. And i'm going to give you all the credit for a basically breaking the national story or should i say debunking a national story but i We are sitting here in kenner in my basement. This is classical wayne's world stuff in the basement it's been captured in the basement and you're worried about You know there might be a water running upstairs ruin your mom's gonna come down like lanes world. It saves past your bedtime. But we'll we're winging it we're doing. Our best. khurana failed miserably. To set up. The livestream will be no livestream but it will be a podcast. And that's what's important and it will sound good because you promised me if we if we sat like on each other's laps i got like one leg over your leg prefer less close. And that's as what. I what i can only get so critical of you because i'm dead serious about this. The the biggest story at least in sports and culture and Podcasting doc radio yesterday was from course field in denver on sunday. When lewis brinson the marlins batter was up to the plate and a boring it was the ninth inning. Actually boring game lifeless game. The crowd had no energy. No noise and one guy sitting behind home plate started yelling to the mascot. Now we all know he. Now he was saying dinger dinger's the name of the mascot which is like a dinosaur or something. I try that's important. That's important. I try sarah tops and it was somewhat debatable. Sunday night into monday and then koran did this and i wouldn't give you credit except was so nice and tight and short. If this were ten minutes long no one would watched it. They would have been like. I don't care i'll take your word for it. I didn't say what but except you. You you you Edited it down to forty seconds where you can see the fan. You hear him yell. Obviously we heard him yesterday. Everybody heard him in. It was kind of one of those road shot tests. Or what was that word that everyone says e the lowest role laurel or not gandhi gandhi laurel and it was oh and they had the color of the dress blue or brown and those kinds of things. It was evolving into that where it was debatable. You know did he say the n. Word and we had people. Just i pointed out yesterday. It was bad news tough news for the typical race. Hustlers in the media. That wanted so badly for this to be the n. Word that's how they roll anytime. There's a story. Like fenway torii. Hunter made up a story about the the fans or the news in rusty wallace has Or whatever his name is garage just wanted so badly to be real. As i've said many times turtle boys says it other the the the Supply of racism near come near to match these. The the demand. The demand far outweighs the supply of racism america. They wanted so badly. They want that narrative they they were over anxious in this case to say ooh that fan was n word but we thought it was a little strange yesterday when we started recording and said there would have been a reaction. You can see the the you know the the crowd. Nobody actually head quiet. Not i mean it was weirdly quiet again. it was. It was a boring game. People were either vote hung over it because they drank old game or they were leaving or they were falling asleep. Whatever was zero reaction to the guy yelling. The word which is why i concluded a couldn't have been the n. word but you don't need my opinion you had Proof because carrano focused on the guy. He's got great seats he's got a rockies jersey. He's an older guy and someone asked this question on twitter to me. And i didn't know the answer. What's worse the fact that he was yellen the n. word affect that. He was actually calling out the name of a mascot which is more pathetic for a grown man. I think the n. Word would be. You're probably right a little worse. But his a grown man. And i guess he had kids. I didn't see the kids or grandkids or something. He looks like he's my age and he's yelling dinger ding or trying to get the attention of a mascot which is kind of pathetic for that aid. But it's definitive in his. It's not debatable. After looking at the the the edits you made you can literally see him way yell and then wave looking directly at the mascot. It's not debatable. It's again disappointing. If you're mike freeman from usa today who wrote about this and said what you hear in this clip is dependent on your life experience and it's stupid and even worse and i heard the lewis brinson. Who sounds really smart and thoughtful and he does what he says. This is kind of silly. He wants to change the name of the mascot. That's what he said maybe they should change the name of the first of all. The named dinger is better. I mean i don't like it. As i pointed out to force upon you forced upon me played editor at sports illustrated see if it were some local haiku high school paper and they liked the word dinger but this was sports illustrated and they liked it was only one editor and he liked dinger and round-tripper and all that he didn't like the basic home run and i would argue just i'd like the word home on the words i don't need i don't want dinner. It's stupid anyway. So i'm okay. If you bandit honestly if you ban the dinger but it's dumb it's a it's a typical mascot name. They hit a lot of home runs in colorado. They named their mascot who's a dinosaur after a homerun nickname. So it did the dinosaur dinger. Wally the green monster just a dumb nickname and grown men are debating whether they should change the name of of a mascot to. I don't know to avoid having this against for kids. I mean it's not true off anyway. It's just a that. That's the thing that this is for children.

"Maybe to him that he thought this was normal but to me and the other women that he did this to it was not normal it was not welcomed and it was certainly not consensual. You know the the level of just brazenness and all it takes be sixty three and think this beautiful thirty year old or twenty five year old or whatever so many to think that they would have interested in. You know. I mean i realize the cuomo's are just a narcissists. We've seen both of them in action. But i mean i did. He often close the deal with these young beautiful. Young women mean i. He's the love. Garvey single looking to mingle said chris cuomo but the idea. You're sixty three and your. Everyone admits you creepy. You're disgusting and this beautiful young girl would want you. I guess. I guess kim credit for confidence because he made them moves and he probably think in one of two things could happen. She could resist me. There's no big deal. I'll walk away or she could give me what i want. And no one's ever going to press charges. Because i'm andrew cuomo powerful him i'm intimidating and it's just it's great to see and fall from grace. I don't think you'll end up in prison. You know with rv weinstein or bill cosby But it's good to see you know the veneer through the veil stripped away we get to see the real scumbag cuomo but We'll we'll keep you updated on that one it's not going away and We'll keep you updated on the scandal out of course field him in in denver. i'm gonna say my guy matt carrano pretty much debunked the n. Word narrative. I don't think that's gonna take off now. I think people like maybe it will who knows how people ran with jesse small let for a couple of days even though it was the most ridiculous hoax of all time people believed torii hunter even though he was completely making it up so maybe people run with the the n word narrative in denver. But we will see. We'll follow that too. But i have a whole bunch more but we'll save it for tomorrow. Is that right with you. Sounds good to me. Yes sounds good to you. That's all that matters all right. Thanks to dc. You and jake. Thanks everybody for for listening and watching and commenting. We have a lot of comments. I didn't really read too many them.

"I said. now let's think about it guys. This guy was right. There are too many diggers at the ball game. But i don't want obviously relitigate. Adam jones torii hunter. We all know that you know we are way. This validates my point. But adam jones quickly re-litigating for years ago is that there was immediately video and it was immediately people saying no. He said that. Like if adam jones somebody yelled at the been video with this is all over the place. I whatever it's just a dumb. I mean this is so silly and it's gonna be you know it'll be a big story today but i think it'll float away. I think it could be wrong. I didn't see. I didn't see you guys referenced. In any of the articles. I saw the adam jones situation referenced in article about this but i didn't see like boston. Sports radio doubted that happened. It'd be the only one with the balls to say. Because i'm not an employee here but is it any coincidence that barstool pops up in colorado and all of a sudden screaming the bowl games mutton question. I mean this guy. I assumed some talk to this guy. Today i would think i don't know i don't do we ever hear from these people that you'd never get their side of the story. I don't think what do you mean by that. The you know you know talking about. I don't make it all fuss at the game. I feel always compel women team. I just loved screaming at lucky favorite yell at him and my kids are like dad. What are you doing like. I can't help but the guy is stress doing flipped. He's got a basketball look at the acrobats. The harry those are the real athletes harry. Don't don't worry about the about yawns. Look at lucky this guy. that's you can learn from. it must be. Let's be realistic. Not everybody's make the nba. Everybody can be a mascot. If only for one day. I love that. We're also gonna have an investigation. Where like worst case scenario be like. Yeah he did it. And i guess we just go back to our lives. I mean sam. Kennedy told me that he didn't believe adam jones when we got we talked about it like during the whole thing. We trying to get kind of calm down. He's like. I don't believe it either but we need to do this and i was like well. Why like. why did they say like on air. Like i'm not even sure if it happened or something like that. Yeah i mean you know. And like i said the torii hunter one. I think torii hunter's story was in the greg hill. People just like let it go. When he was on there was that ten kids would ever jumping up and down screaming the word in people in the stands cheering and laughing. That's just like it's just so it's so dominant so may made up know. I gotta show nessin until john. Henry stephens. That we can't we can't do it true. She's i don't know so we'll see what happens with that. With what else is going on you guys. Well i heard the same. I got the same award to you. Did your friend. Gary tanguay brought you up this morning. By the way. I i guess i guess they were talking about a list that the the most miserable people most miserable jobs in radio hosts was up there like the craziest radio. Host asked to use any doubt. I've never. I don't think i've ever met normal. Person hosts radio show amount of normal person is. Who's a normal person that we all know we deal with. You know jim. Murray seems like a fairly normal guy. Yeah that's true. I don't know him that well but that's true. He seems pretty. Well adjusted i think. Yeah maybe yeah. Maybe he's in but you know a big thing as mornings like it's such a you know. I think that now six. Am you've got to be. It's not like you're going to do a you know a job at six. Am you have to be on and going and it screws up your whole life. I don't think. I just don't think it's bill meant for for normal people which is anyone in entertainment to want the attention that you have to crave like the only reason you become a podcast or comedian or actor waste so people say how much they like you you need to quench that thirst. I guess you can't be a good one. That'd be normal right. I think you could probably just go into your job. You know all the jobs go. I don't know who knows so. I heard i don't know i don't know what he said. Yeah i'd say on the on the crazy scale. I'd give radio the nagyova. Tv buyer smidge. There you have is the biggest cycle tan. I had to deal with radio wise. Hold on hold on. Hold on hold on hold on. Who's that who's that that is Spouse okay recent support gary. Wow i'm trying to think now. Who is charles lockwood era. No i never met him. Guy was not no no no no. He's still alive right. yeah he's out in hawaii. He's gonna out there but he was sick for a while.

"I we're live. we are live all right. Can you guys hear me okay. Loud and clear. Great davis so nervous. It's unbelievable what's the credible is. I'm in this hotel that's It's nice but it's old warehouse. They converted into a hotel space. Great room but it is so echoey. Look how high the ceilings incredibly high. So i'm gonna have. I assume echo the entire time so yeah. You don't sound fantastic. you don't sound now. No okay okay. Well i mean so. I said dave texted me some stupid thing this morning. I don't know whether it was what was that. It was to test the speed of your internet. Yeah so. I don't even know what it means. So i do that to david. David i called. Jesus was that good or bad. Or i don't know i don't care it's amazing how much you care if it's remarkably good. Actually where you are. You just sound like shit. 'cause you're using an iphone. Okay so i sound terrible. Not terrible but not fantastic. Hopefully when we download it. I think it's just for the life. It's not hopefully when we download some different. It sounds fine and people will complain okay. So two things two stories. I want to get to Before we get to some other stuff Number one I they gave me a truck for rental and it is great. I have decided a truck guy by a truck. I might drive a truck home. I love this truck so driving the truck route. Where i do now is like yesterday. I had some gum which usually too much put the gum in here was driving the truck and pretended i was packing house spitting. It's like it's like a fantasy come true so yesterday i one thing i did learn though driving around. You should do if you do have to. Fucking trucks are terrible with gas so filling up the gas yesterday and a guy is kind of looking at me like whatever And i only pay attention filling up. The guy comes around from the other side slowly. This is true slowly pulls up to roll the window down and says to me I don't want to bother you. But i also hate warthogs girlfriend. Now that's stunning. What state were you in when this happened either state. That has that much. I said we said we all do. And what what puts that on your mind like you're out doing god knows what he's folly but i was. I was here to investigate one case. But it's kinda spilled into another one now. Because i think somebody in this iowa area is cousins with the guy in colorado at the rockies game so i yeah i gotta take i mean i gotta take this guy down investigations now. Well i mean he's been yelling a mascot for years right i mean not even at mascots well at mascots for them to like acknowledge him. I guess you know it was a really cool thing. That's what he should be under investigation for. I'm not sure what is now. Look obviously any. That's what he was doing. I mean i've seen it like. There's no there's no way again way. This guy is screaming and were allowed to the baseball game. Colorado doesn't mean that again. I been doing this now for four years. It doesn't mean that people say that or think that but just like with adam jones. That didn't happen torii hunter which was even more absurd. This idea that ten children were chanting it in parents were cheering on. This guy was screaming at a mascot. For which i agree he should be banned from major league baseball parks for life for that. I got no problem. It does seem the idea that no one reacted if he is hilarious. Why can't people laugh at that shit where it's like. That would be funny if he was screaming at that volume and everyone just went on with their business true. It'd be like i think he tweeted. Be less embarrassing. Wake i don't but now the times is writing about it. But i i actually have a feeling. This is not gonna stick like adam. Jones did ironically. All we wanted was audio true fathom jones. We never got it like this audio and the explanation. There's no way i saw. They're launching an investigation by. They should spend their time and resources. It's good the find a guy who they know exactly who. He is said exactly what they know he said. I think that's a good way to spend the major league baseball teams time. I hope they find really personal details about his life so that we can. You know harass him. I think that'd be good. It's you know a evidently ba. I'm sure it'll ban them so it's a if it's the guy that you know did they're focusing on. I think this guy is a longtime season ticket holder. They said like you know you could see. It's him and look if it's wrong. It turns out some racist saying the n. Word than you know. i'm. I'm all for kicking the guy out but you see the video the guy clearly is pointing for. There's nothing there's a long war bunch of people are excited. And i've never really even as a kid never really understood the appeal mascots. I've always felt that were very strange. Really got it but this mascots name is dinger course. Colorado is get the finnair's all the home runs Her jerry's podcast. This morning while i was running and jerry macaroni thought the the the Mascots was digger. Which would be a little that would be tricky digger which i thought well chronic correct it but you're saying yet digger..

"Dinger. So he's looking at that stupid dinosaur. Yeah and there's a longer so i it's hard to hear but there's a longer piece of audio where you hear other people in the crowd saying the same thing saying just quieter it wouldn't have worked for For for playing on the show event too quiet. But i think. I think it's pretty pretty clear what's going on. Also shout out to you. Have a big fan richard. I won't docs him. Who sent me this last night and said hey you're probably gonna talk about this on the show tomorrow but take a look at this video and you know what i don't know what the e there's one of two things will happen today on sports talk radio for. Espn for everyone out. They're reacting to this. They're either going to run with the n. Word thing or they going to ignore then. They're not going to say. Listen everybody overreacted. It is not the n. word is yelling at them. mascot there's i mean it's kind of a sleepy late inning situation where there's not a lot of buzz not a lot of noise in the crowd in again. It sounds like the n word but just like with adam jones. Just like with torii hunter. Where is the reaction from. The appalled offended fans because there would be thousands of them. If you i mean. That's that's pretty loud in ballpark. Oh yeah point. They would be thousands of people turning yelling pointing. It just didn't happen. And i assume that like you said other people actually saying dinger that it was pretty obvious that they were trying to get a reaction out of the of the mascot. But let you see how it all. I'm sure will play out but But i think it's important to note like maybe it makes sense to like wait a little bit before before reacting online You know in a in a very negative way and calling for someone's head. why not. Just wait a little bit and see you know. See what comes to pass first Before we won't do that. I mean it's especially me. I don't do it on twitter. I initially heard a red then hurt. You know read read about it and then played it and i was like wow. I didn't see the dinger. He was this reaction. I mean as a whole bunch of media. People initially immediately reacting disgusting. It is and the one guy tweets at me and says now. You can't pretended happen as i laid out many times. The torii hunter didn't happen. I'm not pretending. I'm stating definitively that it didn't happen and you can't do that. Torii hunter went on a mile radio station and someone asked him. Why can't people just believe you tori. Why do they have to doubt you. Ask that question on the air when a guy was clearly lying about the very fans that these people depend on people to the fans the listeners who pay their salary. They're calling him. They're calling them racist based on. This guy's absolutely silly story that he made up So tweeter wants snow. The only reason opining on this tweeter said the reason. I'm opining is i can't deny at this time because there's proof and then later come all people who like you kinda studied the tape and played it back and forth and said wait a second. It's much more likely these just heckling the mascot late at a boring baseball game We gotta but i think also we got a buddy in the chat saying hasn't rap music completely desensitized. That word no. I listened to a ton of rap music. I love rap music as a musician. And no like if i heard that at a sporting event i would be appalled and shocked. No one. I have no friends who use that word. No one uses that word. I mean hunter biden new service. People use it and you know what happens to their lives get destroyed wargin wallin the country guy drunken like two in the morning with his buddy used it in a affectionate way too. His buddy like Like an you know trying to be cool like rapper with the at the end and he was completely cancelled by so many people in the industry. You know ords taken away. Contracts torn up a because he used that word it is it is it. If it's a wrap it's okay. But if it's a a a white guy talking about a black guy like a black baseball player. It would be a huge deal. The rockies would be apologizing every day from month and they'd be making donations and it would just be a huge huge deal but unfortunately Mike dolan to all the usual race. Hustlers all the max. Kellerman is out there My buddy alex reamer. Sorry pierre apparently once again it did not happen and you know what. That's a good thing that should be a sign that You know this this. There is not that kind of overt racism in out there and and they're more people who would who frown upon it. Who were outraged by it. But it's not a good thing because they love those stores. They love that narrative that oh the evil you know racist is still lurking. And he's going to ballparks and he's yelling at black players. Didn't i'm gonna say definitively. I don't know if you would agree that it didn't happen. I think it looks. I'm about ninety ten percent. It didn't happen. Give you that ninety ten percent and maybe if they come up with another angle or another hoarding and you hear someone. I'm always listening for someone to say what yell or boo point and it doesn't happen so once again. It's just hard to believe that a guy would do that. And nobody would point him out. They would have him. Excuse me beyond him. And you know ten seconds to be pointing and yelling and they'd be taken them escorting them out in ten seconds. Yeah we'll see. I mean the marlins marlins released a statement to believe they did. I believe they reacted to it as well. But we will We'll see what happens this. You know this day after. That's generally when the outrage machine kicks in but We got a bunch of other stuff to get to speaking about rage. I want to get to the chicago story because it. Just it's the most infuriating damn news story. I've read in a long long time. But i let me do shane. We'll get to the chicago thing and they'll tell you about the prisoner the prisoner in washington. Who killed his bunk mate..

"Boston. sports talk. radio will hire him. i mean they. We've said it. Many many times but the boston red sox no ownership in professional. Sports has done more to disparage their own fans. The boston red sox no one does less to defend their own fans their own pink customers in the bus red sox anytime opposing player makes up a story about how he was attacked by vicious racists. The most recent one would be torii hunter last year. Who said a group of kids stood up at fenway dern a game and chafed at the end word and the parents cheered them. Obviously completely mess made up. I mean jussie. Smollet was embarrassed. This so it was so transparently a fabricated lied about So it wasn't a big deal you just dismiss him as liar instead. The red sox apologize long history of racism and they dump all over their own fans the people who defend the fans which is what i did in a former partner kirkman and did when when adam jones made up a story about someone yelling the n word. We defended the fans the city and that somehow was racist. If you don't believe guys who make up stories about racist hecklers racist. And actually i remember like in initially like you were just questioning. If if this happened is that there should be evidence. Everybody's got cell phones. Did any other fans report. This would have been around. Because if i know that if i if you were in the stands and something like that happen we would be shocked and appalled right so weird so shocking to hear we would say something. My old friend. Alex roemer when sat in that section. Like the next game and he wanted to believe it. A liberal always want to believe the worst in people. They want to believe that. The ballpark is full of clansman yelling racist things and only rooting for white guys. You know like the kid the nba. The celtics came through the bottle water bottle at at kyrie. Irving he's got a celtics jersey of kevin garnett or whatever. He's spending a lot of money to be at celtics games. A huge celtics fan and they want you to believe he's this vile racist and i asked. How does that work you spending your day every day and night for a bunch of black guys and yet you hate black. It doesn't make any sense but it doesn't matter. The narrative was there for the taking for the alex rumors. Or whoever max kellerman djamil hills no racist boston. We just ask questions. If adam jones telling the truth how come no one heard it. He was accusing the guy yelling. It from at least fifty feet away surrounded by people And nobody heard it. No witnesses again. If torii hunter by the way we're telling the truth hundred people hundreds of people would point out the kids absolute security. They'd be escorted out. It'd be banned from the stadium. It's it's ridiculous to think that you could yell that were in front of a bunch of other fans and nobody says a word. Nobody points you out. It's you know what it's a lie is what it is. Torii hunter made it up because he doesn't like boston fans but that's obvious everyone knows he made it up but they don't wanna question him because if they do they'll be accused of being racist themselves. It's kind of a crazy thing but that's how it works yesterday. When this broke immediately. I get the people on twitter saying. Isn't that proof. Finally get your proof and initially because of the reaction. I'm seeing i'm going. Wow i guess do sounds yes. Sounds pretty damning. Yeah and if you read further and listen to other people people who were there. It seems like he wasn't not have been yelling. That might not have been the n. Word it would be the name of the rockies mascot do i have that correct yeah. Diggers is his name with a d. digger is the rockies mascot. What is he's a big harry. Whatever character do you have a picture of digger. What does digger look like I'd have to pull it up. Hold on that's okay. And here's why and again i'll be accused of. You just can't believe people. He's way it's much more likely that this heckler was your fan was yelling digger because nobody says a word. I mean again. It doesn't matter boston or denver. Or wherever if someone's yelling that word at a player that person is going to be confronted by other fans. Oh they're not figure. I apologize dinger dinger dinger because he's dinosaurs triceratops. He's got two horns thing and like a beak. It's very strange dinger. Paul paul dinger so when you consider this blade again we'll ask if he's yelling dinger or the n. Word and again if he's only word this immediately going to be someone going shot up. Or what's wrong with you you asshole that gonna. It's gonna get ugly. That's that's a fact. I don't care what city it's and this is america in twenty twenty. One people don't stand for other people yelling that word. It's absurd to even imagine. It will hear. I think today again on sports. Talk radio and espn around the horn of one of these shows. Some you'll hear people running with this as if it's gospel they will say yes. Listen to that. This is awfully they should michael bond. I believe said when A boston fan was accusing when they were accusing a boston. Fan yelling the word said they should take away draft picks. I think it was michael. Wilpon it was An espn personality takeaway draft picks from the team because a a and it was a very obviously very shaky accusation. There's no proof. Thought they should take away draft picks from the team. That's nuts it was or somebody else said that they should like take away. Home games or something they. They went crazy with this. When torii hunter and or adam jones set with the with the outrage the the cranked up outrage inc and just accused boston of every ugly thing and went back to bill russell and busing. And you name it. That won't happen because it's denver and we realized that you know. Only boston has has a history of race in racism. But i think it's all going to fall apart when you listen again and again it's not clear whether it's what is it. Dinger dinger like hitting a home run or the end word. I'll get your dinger's yeah ever tell you. When i was at sports illustrated that was an editor who used to want to use. Other words and homerun. If you said he hit a home run he would change to dinner. Really what. I hate dinger. I hate that word. It's so silly. I mean if i wanted to call it a danger i would call it at dinner and change it to round tripper and you go. I just wanted to be home on. Can it just be home. Run anyway. Play it again. Tell me which is more likely that he's saying dinger or saying the n. Word and keep in mind. There's nobody else nobody else shouting anything when this guy allegedly uses a racial slur at a player in the middle of a pack ballpark..

"That's an old school way of looking at it, like I always laugh at like I read a book one time, and it was probably a kid's biography on Shoeless Joe Jackson. Nice, the 1919 Black Sox scandal, of course, and he was a guy who Children's book about cheating. By the way I didn't cover the 1919 Black Sox scandal in this book was more about him and his bat Black, Betsy and his his really that he was kind of illiterate could not read didn't sign his own autograph a lot of the time, by the way, his bat black See was rumored to have been dyed black. It was a brown wood bat rumored to have been dyed black by chewing tobacco spit that he used to spit out and then soaked his bat in it, By the way, How about getting through like a whole career with one bat? Yeah, You know, that's my bad. I just take it home with me and bring it back to the yard. That's my best got a lot of hits in it. It's kind of like when you see those old videos are like I think in the movie eight men out there's guys like running back in from the outfield, and they're like leaving their gloves out in center. Fidel Just come pick it up when I When I come back out, happy felt to come. Play defense anyway. Shoeless Joe used to like he thought it helped his hitters. I he would stand in his bedroom or in his in his hotel or in his apartment. Wherever they were on the road. He would light a candle. In his room, which, by the way they probably had to like for light reasons. Uh, probably probably places they stayed and went didn't all have electricity? Yeah, he's lighting candles, and he would cover one eye and he would stare at the flame for like, a half hour. Then he switch eyes. Anyone again helps my vision for what I hit. This is just some ridiculous old school way of thinking that if I watch the flame flicker my hitting I is gonna be good kind of tough to argue. A guy who's one of the greatest hitters average wise of all time. What would Shoeless Joe think of the card? She was sure these guys put in an hour. It feels like I can't. I can't even read. I'm not going to check out a card in left field, dude. So this guy, he would do other things, too. Like to strengthen his arms. He would just hold his bat out straight from his body for like, 10 minutes. I'm going to try the other arm. But to me, that's a Buster Posey. I mean, obviously not as ridiculous but to look up and see. All right. I got a 11 count on this guy. Did we just blow a fastball by him? Was he really late? Is he choking up on the bat? You go off speed now, Do we come in on the hands? Did he get stung on that and shake his hand off? Maybe we want to come right back in with the pitch like that. To me, That is is intuitive baseball. That is not the you know, we talk about the brainy action that the Harvard educated people who have come into the game, and it's not spreadsheet based. It's not spreadsheet baseball, and there's something to be said about the between the ears element of the game. Yeah, no, I love that. I don't have anything to add here because you said that really well. I'm stoked. I'm a huge all Star game guy. I'm a huge home run. So that's an interesting take. Is it? Do you think people don't in general like Major League Baseball's All star? Yeah, I think in general, it's kind of one of those events that people watch because it's the only sporting event of the year on that day, and in an otherwise say That wasn't the reason I love it. I just said, I'm an All Star game. I've never thought the product is that cool, and for years the American League has dominated the nationally which always bothered me for some reason, even though I have no skin in this game, I have nothing to Care about, but it always bothered me that the l would emerge with the wind. I'm with you. Yeah. So, uh, it does surprise me a little bit that you're a big all Star game guy, because I didn't. I didn't see anyone being a big All Star game person in general. You know what's funny is I I never Let me let me pull back for a minute. I always hated the This one counts. The making The All Star game. Decide who gets home field in the World Series is the stupidest thing ever unless it's 2000 and 12 and you're the San Francisco Giants. And you basically with the All Star Game for your team, and then sweep the Detroit Tigers. I was all in on the, uh, really managed for that one counting. It was. It was a total That that game doesn't And in a tie If Torii Hunter doesn't rob Barry Bonds, right, the 11th inning, I think they had to just scrap the game, and everyone's like, dude, just let him use a picture again. And they're like, Nah, we're going to call this thing that I think they gave up the the inaugural All Star Game MVP or named after Ted Williams or whatever it was, and the game is called the tie. It was just terrible sort of over correct the following year, they said, Well, we're going to give this meaning, like you've taken too much meaning away from it by adding meaning to it. It's stupid. It's pointless, especially when every team has a representative and half the teams are out of it. At this point anyway. What do you do? That actually is my favorite. All Star tradition is every team having a representative because when we were in Arizona over the weekend, there were a lot of D'backs media members in the press box. Keep in mind. The D backs media contingent is very small to begin with, because who's covering that team, But they were talking about who's this team's All star like they have no choice is it's like the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Baltimore Orioles For years, you would end up with a random middle reliever who was having against It's for a long time. Just like dude. There's like one guy on every team. I always felt bad when, like the Kansas City Royals would run like some reliever out there, who then doesn't get into the game. You know you can't use them. You want just got a 33 for the royal. But I've always appreciated as as a fan of baseball and as a fan of like the Warriors as a kid. I hated it forever. The Warriors.

"Must growth can't get past the fifth inning. Darvish has been terrific. Weathers is not the same pitch tree was earlier in the year before he had the arm injury. They need a starting pitcher, and they're going to probably go out and I think they know it because they've got a good offense. And they've got the most exciting player in the league and Totti's Machado and the money is on the line. I think he'll he'll come through, but they're going to need a couple of starting pitchers, so I think the Giants are in decent shape. I really do when you look at the competition. And I think that's the focus of what I'm going to say this weekend. What I'm going to say heading into the break and after the break, let's see what the rest of the league can do. And then let's react to that. It's so funny with the Padres You mentioned the meeting. Some starters. That's got to be frustrating for their front office. They've made trades for three starters over the last season. They went and got Mike Clevinger. Then he misses this entire season. They trade for Blake Snell. He hasn't been as advertised, at least to this point. And then as you mentioned you, Darvish, who's been fantastic, but they thought they were also Said. I think they thought they had their rotation. They have their lineup, and it shows you what the 60 game season didn't show us. It's a war of attrition. It's a marathon. It's not a sprint, so they've got an uphill battle in the second half, But I can't let you go. Marty without talking would have an All Star game. It's one of my favorite events every year. I'm a baseball junkie, You know that I love baseball history, but the All Star Game for me. I love that It's on the stage of its own. It's on a Tuesday night where nothing else is going on in the sports world. Except for the All Star game. It's just always been one of the special nights for me your all Star game memories. Your thoughts about the All Star game. I think number one for me is that the fact that it doesn't count that it doesn't determine home field of the World Series is a wind from here on out, But what do you think about the All Star game when when it comes to mind? Well, it's still fun. The baseball All Star game is the only All Star game that is actually a competition. So I think you start from that and you just love to see And I know they're going to have these sterile uniforms. This year, the first All Star game in 1933. The National League did the same thing. It only lasted one year, and then they started wearing the uniforms of the individual teams. But the introductions are fun. The matchups are kind of fun. It's just a good evening. It's a feel good evening for baseball. And you're going to get to see the stars of baseball on the field in a game that's actually a game. It's not the NFL Pro Bowl with no blitzing. It's not the NBA with, you know, just dunk after dunk after dunk, it's an actual baseball game. And they have fun with it. So I think it's terrific. My memories of the All Star game really saw a lot that I've read about. Uh, you know the Carl Hubbell striking five out in a row, Right? Right in 1934, You know if Ruth and Garrigan, Fox and Simmons and Cronin, Fernando and Gooden in San Francisco in 1984, striking out six in a row between them. Willie Mays taking over the All Star game, and as Willie is totally before Austin would come up to him and say will help me with the lineup, and Willie would say, All right, I'm first Erin, Second Clementi's third and do what else? Whatever you want for the rest. I don't care. It doesn't matter. And that, you know, and that's the way they approached it each euro with his explosive, you know, speech right to the American League. He's the last guy to talk. Uh and he would say, if they national league you know something like that, and they'd go nuts and running out of the clubhouse. The league presidents used to come in and, you know, make arguments. And you know, the All Star game is just, uh It has so many injuries in it, Uh, Ted Williams fracturing an elbow in 1950. You had dizzy Dean getting hit on the on the toe by a line drive in the late thirties. That Effectively ended his career You've got so many Fosse and Pete Rose is one that comes to the rose A very good absolutely. Ray was going to be one of the great young catchers in the American League until Till Pete Rose separated his shoulders. So you have you know you have such a good history. Late inning home runs by Stan Museo Red shadings. You know the first African American players to play in the All Star Game in 1949 with Big Don Newcombe and Jackie and Campanella in Brooklyn. What that must have been like that day to be part of that to see that. You know you could go back Tony Perez hitting the home run in the 15th inning in Anaheim. Bo Jackson hitting the home run off Rick Russia, 1989 while Ronald Reagan was on the air with Vin Scully. You had that to to fall back on. There's just so many that go back and forth. The bonds getting robbed is Torii Hunter. I think the home run. I think that was the year of the Thai, wasn't it? That's the Milwaukee you know, and he lifts him up and you know and goes up. You have John Kruk and Randy Johnson. Yeah, reminded me of, you know, Norm cash going up there with a table leg trying to hit Bob Gibson. You know that sort of thing. So it has so many moments that other sports don't have. Yeah, I challenge anyone to give me highlight moment of an NBA All Star game or an NFL game, But with baseball, we can take every one of these games and go back and find some highlight moments and There are issues now The ground doesn't want to go. Caray is not going. This was a big deal. Hank Greenberg wasn't played one year Joe McCarthy didn't play him and he said, You know, I'm not coming and he said, I'm going to say goodbye to the Oster game didn't show up the next year. Bob Feller didn't want to pitch a couple of years and there were big issues and around the country and basically you've got to play. That's what a big deal it was, and we're going to see a lot of players now opting out of the game, so To answer your question. It's really a great question because there's just so much should we love about baseball, and it goes back to the first home run. Ever hit in 1933 by Babe Ruth. Of course. Who else would The All Star game was put together because of the Chicago world's fair that they wanted to make a big deal about it. The owners didn't want it. They were afraid of injury. They said. Gee, if we do this in Chicago, other cities are going to want it. There's been elections of how players are elected in the fifties, the Cincinnati Reds sent in a billion votes. You know a million votes for their whole team, and they all made the team to start and Warren jealous, said No, I'm sorry. We can't do that. And they put the regular you know, National League team out there so There's so many great stories about the All Star game that.

I'm Dave are Brewster Despite the loss last night, it was a big night for Joey Votto, who collected career R B number 1000. And he did it by hitting a home run in the bottom of the third. He met with the media earlier today and was asked if he remembered R B I number one. Mm, First one was the home run off of John Mayne. In my rookie year. And seven or my, my initial call up. And, um, that was cool. You know, I was I was in a kind of a grumpy frame of mind because I felt like I should have been in the league years before that, you know, I remember as an 18 year old in the Gulf Coast League. Um Hitting well and like Starting to figure out how to hit professionally and one of the coaches. Bobby Williams. Say, What are your goals and I said to be in the major leagues next year, and he was like No, seriously. What are your goals and in my head? I was like Oh, no, dude, I really I'll figure this out really quickly. Um, obviously, that didn't happen, but not terribly long. After that. I felt like I was ready offensively. And, um, you know, at first base defensively, I was fine. I had a reputation for not being, um, very good. But my early career numbers showed otherwise. I was I was a good defender, Um So I was grumpy when I first came up, so I wasn't in a very good mood When I, uh got to my first start by. It was like it's about darn time so And now I'm just I'm very happy to be here. Joey, If you're just looking at your number's the home run milestone this year in the RV milestone, it puts you up there with reds, who are in the Hall of Fame, the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Do you ever allow yourself to think about that? What that might be like if that could happen for you of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. I spend most of my time thinking about I I mean, Whether I'm making a minimum or or or a big number, salary wise, I've spent all my time thinking about or most of my time thinking about How can I be competitive? As long as I have an opportunity to to play and so I would really like, you know, I was. I've been very fortunate to see some Clearly, excellent players play well to the very, very ended their career. Um Where they opted not to play anymore. You know, I'm talking about Adrian Beltre talking about Torii Hunter I'm talking about, Um, you know, David Ortiz. These are players that decided, you know. Chipper Jones. I've had enough. Derek Jeter. That's good, you know? And, um Those are the those are the players. I admire the most. Because I know that one day I won't be good enough to play baseball anymore. But As long as I have an opportunity to I want to keep fighting and I look up to those players, among others. And try to emulate that, and that's what gives me the greatest. Um, joy, and that is my current challenge. Some.

"It's the wrong guy right now. Wrong guy right now restaurant guy right now roy no no no wrong guy that is so obnoxious over and over again and by the way the security. If you're just listening watching. He looks kind of happy. He doesn't look scared at all. And the security guy tries to take his phone and he just pushes him away he is a just a punk. Let's be honest. he's a punk and again you. And i both think he's drunk but he was a sober enough to you. Know make a ticket. You know the the words and hold up his phone. Livestream it and the word. You just joe. You just chose to say articulate. That video i mean he is mangled drunk jerry. He's mangled trump surprised if he woke up the next morning. I'm not saying he did. He didn't black out but it's easier than we think has it. He's celebrated. I mean you got that other video. That's getting out with his buddies when you you know when you have to start takes this. I'm sorry but he thinks this so far not not today when he's arraigned but he thinks this is pretty cool at this point. He thinks the game's over. I did what i did. They're going to drag me out. I'm going to get cheered. And i'm gonna be famous or infamous. He doesn't think in any real trouble. He reminds me in more than one way of the january six insurrectionists who are taking selfies and having a good time and putting their feet on nancy pelosi's desk they didn't think they were in that much trouble thought they were whatever trespassing. Maybe that the cops would kick them out and now some in solitary confinement four or five months and some of them go to prison including the guy who put his feet on pelosi's desk he's facing seven years in prison and it's all political they're all just persecuting them and make an example out of them. What do you think happens today to call buckley in court. Do you think they say oh. He's a first time offender. He's a college student. He's done some charity work as turtle boy has shown his frat is done some work for environmental causes in the climate change guy and climate with ao. And you're you're queer. You're great you're in good position he's fine. They're going to go and you know what else is a bad. Look when we see this video and people haven't seen it turtle boy has it all as always he's got the video of this and he's got the video of him getting out of jail and celebrating each just seems like it the the the ultimate you know frat boy masol drunk punk today for one for first of all for one. He's a college kid. College kids do shit like this every weekend. I did shit like this every weekend. I did some broke the espn game day bust and stole all those stupid home. Depot sign helmets from week course o or whatever and kirby went back to a party and handed him out to people all right at nut. I i did so you dumb things when you're drunk that's what you do. You do dumb things when you're does barstool know about this year criminal. I'm an old man. I was back in the day. I didn't think i went and had a. We had a good time. I was like thank you very much confessing. Now i don. I've done my share of stupid thing. I tried to get laid off that story that night and enough work. I've done my share of dumb stupid young college. You're drunk things too. But again when the cops show up when i know i'm getting a lug i change. I know i i. It's like a cop know confront shoe or something you say yes sir no sir. I've taught my son the same thing you don't mess with the cops because they can mess with you and they are here. He's facing felony charges. When the buckeye spin on trae young in new york i just new york is lawless wild west now anyway but they. They asked trae young if he wanted to press charges and he said no. I don't think anyone's asking career. Would you like the press charges. He probably would say. Yes but They're not leaving up to him. We will see we will see if he gets the january tree today. I have a feeling he's going to and he's going to get like thirty days and five fine and everyone is going to say good after seeing that video. The turtle boy posted that the way he celebrated the arrest people will not have zero. He could get five years in prison and people will have no sympathy form. That's the state we are in the like. You and i will have no sympathy for whatever he gets because we think at the end of the day there's repercussions to being drunk idiot right. You got to know that if that's if that's why he's paying a price. I'm all good. The people you're talking about are happy because he's a racist right like that's that's the only reason it's a story. It's not a story because he threw a water bottle is amazing amazing. You watch how these things work there will be. There's some mention of racism. Obviously some cut from kyrie irving and from stephen a. on this in a year two years five years. It'll be your member that racist fan with garnet jersey. It will just be an accepted part of boston sorted history. There's no evidence of racism and again we talked about this yesterday and it's still a good question you spend to go to a game. You spend a lot of money right. You gotta you gotta buy a ticket. He had good seats. I know he's young but somehow we get the money. Get the ticket. You buy beers that ten eleven bucks each hell the water's what's the water. Seven fifty two year limit though by the way to bear women at the garden. With all game you this ways around that you should know that better than anyone. That is trump. You're so you invest in this you by the jersey. Which is what one hundred something bucks. Ab- garnett you're obviously a huge celtics fan of huge. nba fan. Can you be a huge nba fan and raving racist. I mean what you're doing is cheering every night. You watch cheering for young black guys. You know i mean. It just seems like a contradiction. A paradox for someone to be a racist and a huge nba fan. I don't know it. It seems strange. But there's no evidence. I also love kellerman reported yesterday. I don't love these people always go back to. It was all over. Tv kyrie said that there's underlying racism. Do you think like this kid called. Luckily who's on snapchat. Twenty four seven a day in college right now is thinking about kyrie. Irving and underlying racism. Kyrie irving is a piece of shit who lied to his face. instead he'd resigned. What the celtics. He disrespected the fan base so he got drunk. He had a good time and he threw a water bottle. And and you know what the kid has right. cari is a dick and everyone knows it. Lt missed noticed teammates. Now not everyone knows it and they know i mean. He's he's smart enough to know injecting. Racism was going to work in his favor because he doesn't like boston doesn't like the celtics. He stopped on the logo to prove it and he knows by checking race. He makes matters worse for the for the enemy. It's simple as that but there's no evidence that cold i mean. You didn't turtle boy didn't go on his facebook page and find a slot. Stickers wasn't like looking at route north from jio book. It wasn't wearing a hoodie a hooded klan robe. Nothing like that. Of course nothing like that. And it just made up to advance the stereotype. The michael change Torii hunter stereotype. That it doesn't apply it just doesn't apply as far as we know now called buckley's a drunk obnoxious college kip. There's no evidence that he did because of race. I mean if if kyrie irving were white and were obnoxious. And we're a whole. I'm pretty sure boston would hate him. Just the same..

"Said doctoring the baseball became a slippery slope. That sum was accepting on cold days were really hot ones for grip. So pictures knew where the ball was going. The hitters were okay with it, so they didn't get killed. You know, they don't want the ball to get away, so they're like it. Look, if it makes your grip batter and your don't beat us, it's cool. But now all of a sudden with the rpm thing, and now they're measuring Rpm's. So they can. They could see it analytically. Exactly The huge difference it makes. So can I get a little rosin like, isn't the rosin bag behind the mounds? Right? Right. I need that. Can I live in a little rosin? You probably should not be able to doctor a baseball. You should. I mean, I think we're getting to that point. I'm with you, You know, before you take these other drastic steps of moving the rubber six inches back, lowering the mound again doing all these big pillow bases. How about we just say, hey, pictures You don't get to doctor the baseball with any stick of how many guys are done, What percentage of guys air doctoring the baseball these days. I think that's a million dollar questions. What Rizzo last He's gonna be on tomorrow, maybe whole address it more. But Rizzo was on with Captain Hoody that always talking about it. 9 30 tomorrow for Rizzo on Captain Jay Hood. I mean, that's Using an illegal substance to change the flight of a baseball is cheating. Yep. 3323776. I want to play this problem. Captain J. Hud and Chuck are find surprised me today. Chuck Gare. Fine is always pro White Sox even when they're not playing well, Chuck's going to tell you they are going to start to play well, even when the manager doesn't manage. Well, who even tell you, eh? It's OK. They're going to bounce back level block. Chuck's always pro socks. I love Chuck. I love the trucks on our show. He does a good job on NBC Sports Chicago, But Chuck is a very pro White Sox guy. Very pro white socks. To say so, Homer. Just say it. Like, what is the wrong with the world? I'm gonna insinuate the homer. I'm going to say he has some home a rich tendencies, okay? That everything's good in sacks land all the time. Ricky Regnery is patching a playoff game and Chuck's leg. Hey, hey, Sylvie. It's tough in those playoff games. All right. Ricky is doing the best he can shut. Word shared. All right. Come on, Chuck. I've been taxing with Chuck also because I told them I was going to go after him. But this is the part. I want to go after him about that. Make it any better that you've alerted him that you're going to go after it is why I thought for sure he'd be like I'm not scared of anything. But Jack today I chuck, I'm gonna come after you Just wanna let you know about coming out here about Well, you know, we call 23 premeditation about 4 23 stab you right in the back. Ready for it. Okay. E love, John. S So here's Chuck talking about Adam the upcoming schedule against the really struggling twins. I don't know if you guys have checked it out lately. The twin stink and you have a chance to bury them early. So Chuck talked about that. Listen, I'm with you. The Minnesota Twins have damaged part of my soul in my lifetime, So I know what I know what you're thinking. I know what White Sox fans are thinking. You think I'm going to be Confidence. Or even any sort of have any sort of. I'm not definite overconfident. Do you think I'm confident with the 12 and 20, Minnesota twins coming to town against the White Sox team? That's red hot. I have zero confidence because the twins have damaged my soul. So let's see what happened. I would love for the White Sox to make a freaking statement and say, You know what? The Royals. You were in first place. We kicked you and then you got you fell down. We kicked you again and again. Twins. You're eight games under come to town. I'm gonna kick you. I'm gonna kick you in the mouth. And then when you're about to get up, I'm not kicking them out again like that's what I want to see from the White Sox. They have not been able to do this for the twins. And I don't know, ever. I mean, they won the blackout game, but like Boy there has this is this is not an equal competition in my lifetime. So let's see what happens here. I'm not confident all this because of the past. Let's change the president in the future and turn this whole thing around. Starting this week. Another sound like a homer to me. That's the point. As an NBC Sports Chicago host. I'm gonna bring up another guy. They're at NBC Sports Chicago Chuck. If you're scared, go buy a damn dog. This team is different. You need to hear this from a Cubs fan. Chuck Gare find went on the radio, and he said that he's got zero confidence against the 12 and 20, Minnesota twins or 13 and 20. Minnesota twins. You have never built a team in your lifetime that is built to last. The light sacks would get lucky they'd win for a year, and they would never have a window opening. This is a team that is built for this moment that is built for this year. And you're scared you because of your past feelings. I told this to Cubs fans in 2015 after the Cardinals beat us in the middle of the year that the cardinal fans were tweeting me. And they said Sam all Cubs Sylvie, the Cardinals will always have your number, and I told those people to stick it because I knew what was coming because even though I had been through hell is a Cubs fan, I understood the team that was being built and any Sox fan right now who's running? From the Peronnas. Who, Chuck? Nah. Block is going to get me on the Minnesota Twins. Curveball. Fuck! It's coming back from the dead. He's gonna get Torii Hunter. He's gonna crime. The wall. Who? Frank Violet's gonna make sweet music. Get over the eighties in the nineties in the 2000. This is a team right now. Even without a lawyer, even without Robert, they are pitching that How out of the ball they go from Giolito Deline took Eichel to Rhodin, Who's a Cy Young winner to cease And then they've got kopeck for good measure. Take that in a spot start and you're scared. Take that chump of the Minnesota twins because you got your feelings her Back in 2007. I mean, give me a break. Glad you guys All Sox fans. I thought the Sox fandom was tougher than this. Fear the twins these twins? I told the Cardinal fans that they were gonna They were gonna loosen them. Naturally, You're measurably tougher than everybody. That's not true. I am not on weaker than most people. I think there's two Oh, hold on. We've got a caller on line. 12 line, 12 Go ahead. Yeah, This is Chuck are fine calling from the jewel parking lot. Did you know that Dr. Did you need someone to hold your hand while you will You call us here to die? Wow. Today, get in the damn glad and was gonna come out and make your nightmares come true. Oh, no. Uh, okay. Okay. Explain myself. I thought it was pretty clear in the clip that you ran right there. That? Yeah. The stocks should knock the crap out of his twins team. I believe they can. I believe they should. The issue that I'm having is They have yet to show this to me in? I don't know. I looked back eight years. You've got to go home. You got some scars, just letting you have crap teams in the last eight years Chock Exactly exactly. But even still, even still the twins at times heads and crab teams, and this actually goes back Even before that this goes back to like old four. Goes back into the nineties. This is this a thing. It's a thing that Sox fans have with the twins. It's a thing we had the blackout game that help matters for about a decade from me and the Twins. Now. Now, when the twins are a wounded animal coming to town, they should just kick them and kick them and beat the snot out of them. But until they do it until they do it Just like I think this is a lesson three games in May, and then they play them again for three games in May. So in the grand scheme of things for the players, it's not a big deal. For fans and for a sportscaster like myself. I want blood, and that's what I'm hoping for. Are you gonna be twisted up for every sweat twins and socks match up this year, Chuck? Yeah, yeah. Yes. Maybe not everyone, this 33 games and the next one's like, that's what I want. I want the White Sox because they've been on the receiving end of this for years, and even when they're not good, like when the White Sox Good. Sometimes the twins even beat him then and so I just want This is what I feel like I want the stocks and by the way, I'm not..

And then I got to a point that in high school, I was getting away with that stuff, but it in grammar school, and then I got to a point where she knew that I was just, you know, playing, and I wanted to watch the game and they let me stay home to watch it, Which was which was great. Luckily for me on the little guy still still in kindergarten, So he'll be in the crib tomorrow. First pitch one. Oh, five for my Yankees, but obviously baseball. All across the board. I can't wait to watch it all season. I had my fantasy baseball draft this past weekend. There's a lot of great stories, antique. We're joined by a gentleman now, hoo boy. He could go get it in center field, Man. Five All Stars, nine Gold gloves. Couple of silver sluggers. Well could hit it. I want to bury the lead. 12 12 years with the Twins half a decade with the Angels couple of years and Motown's You in Motown went to the post season eight times talking about Tori Hunter is with us now to help us transition into the season. Tory taken Tierney. How you doing, buddy? What's happening? Niki Tierney. What's up, man? Thanks for having me. Yeah, it's an absolute pleasure, but I love watching you do your craft. You were just Ah, great outfielder. Great players we know and one of the good guys for the game, So it's an honor to have you back on the show. It's been a long time, but it's good to have you back. I don't know if you heard me yet. You're welcome. I don't know if you heard me Torrey talking about when I was a kid. I would pretend I was sick and I get to stay home. I'd watch the Mets too. But I did it to watch my Yankees. Not every professional athlete grows up watching the game where you were you a fervent baseball fan is a kid like what was your first baseball memory? Take us back to a young Torii Hunter before he became a name that everybody knew. Man. Um, well, when I was a kid, I was my mom she taught out of the town. She was a teacher, and now I will go to school and then after school, I will go to my grandparent's house who were down the street from the school I was going to and I didn't play baseball or anything. And I was about nine years old. My granddad actually made me sit on the couch with my backpack on my back and the Cubs, you know, they played all day games and the Cubs in the seventh inning, six innings. And there was a guy by the name Andre Dawson. Parole. Jerry Crowe was dripping all of his jersey. Yeah, and I'll have the same thing. I had a girl as well on my granddaddy. I could never understand what he was saying. He always I told you who and sit on the couch. That's all that hurt. That's hysterical. Watch the Cubs and and I grew to become a Cubs fan and And Beth How? In the plan the game of baseball watching $100 in 1988 49 home runs and get the M V. P. So Yeah, he started. He was awesome. The Haughey's ahold of favorite play for the Expos. Obviously great outfield back in the day, Tim Raines, etcetera. Let me ask you this. The I? You just said something that really caught my attention. You said you were about nine or so when you hadn't played when, when you grant that, thankfully because he made you a lot of money by by city behind on that couch by the way. So, too May and we've got a lot of parents listen to the show Baseball season's just starting nine years old to me, Not that it's too late, but baseball's a skill that you gotta learn early. I mean, there's a lot of kids to start playing football late that pop Stephen basketball that store playing late that pop track and field that pop but baseball. It's a learned skill you didn't feel May be overwhelmed is the wrong word. But how long did it take you to actually learn how to hit Because nine. Everybody's playing by the age of nine. That's into baseball by that point. Yeah, I mean, I was a football guy started playing football when I was spied on by played up at five. So we didn't have travel baseball or anything like that..

"torii hunter" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network

"Hey welcome back to the show and there are open lines. If you'd like to participate at one eight hundred eight seven eight play well as we were kind of talking about. Yesterday we had a feeling. At least i did that. there would be no new members in the hall of fame. Each twenty twenty one hall of fame class was just gonna be veterans committee guys and i said that even though curt schilling was trending up and he had gotten to seventy percent last year. I said that With the whole trump thing and the storming of the capital by a bunch of eighth grade dropout crackers that probably people were going to hold that against him. And what is it got to do anything. Well people connect everything. Nowadays everything and so schilling ended up the highest vote getter seventy one point one percent sixteen votes shy and schilling says take my name off the list more about that in a second. Take my name after this but hurdler but hurdler last time. We didn't have anybody brand new two thousand thirteen although eight guys on that list. Who didn't get in eventually got him. But that was the thing about bonds clemens and chilling. This was their element ballot. They get one more bonds and clemens were almost exactly the same amount of people Sixty one point six percent for clemens sixty one point eight percent for bonds bonds got one more vote than clements so we know for a fact two hundred and forty seven voters both like him both like that and One more like spots. I mean somebody voted for bonds. Didn't vote for clements which is weird. scott rowland made a big jump up to fifty two point nine percent or more of these cal we talked about him and block garcia his ex wife Talked about the abuse that he gave her and then he denies that he was out. Forty nine point one Other people getting over the forty threshold. Billy wagner todd helton gary sheffield andrea jones thirty three percent. Jeff kent thirty two But for the new guys on the list. Tim hudson barely made it at five point. Two percent you've got twenty one votes bobby radio and torii hunter getting back to curt schilling. They remember harry carson. Who when he didn't get the hall of fame on his first dry. he said. take me off about. I don't wanna be in your stupid hall of fame anyway blah blah blah crying crying. The next year he got. And he got the most rambling family ling stumbling. Bumbling fleet flukes fumbles manageable speech. I've ever seen a ever as a hot senate troy aikman who was in their class at sit there and stare into the sun for forty five minutes while harry carson just rambled. I don't wanna be your down hall of fame. Then he gets and by the way he knows script it was. Just oh yeah and this this. This guy was great but that guy was races and this guy was cool and that guy was an ass. Anyway hey in you can give speech but Curt schilling says. I will not participate in the final year of voting. I am requesting to be removed from the ballot all defer to the veterans committee and men whose opinions actually matter and who are in a position to actually judge a player. I don't think i'm a hall of famer is often stated but if former players think i am then all except that with honor about that well for eight years kurt Should say nine years kurd you did defer to people whose opinions quote unquote. Don't matter to people who can't judge you as a player. This is just more of the borish horse. Horses asks snus that we get from him so You know. As i said he went up one percent. You know But you know schilling has out. Ever forget what mitch williams came in and chilling. Put the towel over his head. He wouldn't watch. Because he thought mitch williams was going to blow the game for and ruined when to show your teammate. Like that. That was the first time. I thought i really a jerk but remember he was on. Espn and he got fired because tweeted A derogatory gauge. Oh and then he got suspended From espn when he compared muslims. To nazis I mean look on the field. Can you question him. I think you can bonds and clemens. You can't question but schilling said as he continues quote. I can say at this point. I am mentally done. I know math. And i know trends. And i know. I will not attain the seventy five percent threshold for induction as i've stated over the past years to those i've spoken with in my heart. I am at peace. Nothing zero none of the claims being made by any of the writers hold merit whatever mind is as a player will be the truth and one i earned for better or worse the game has made it. Clear does not want me back and that's fine. The game owes me exactly nothing. It gave a billion times than took it all forever. Be deeply in debt to it so we can take a look and i will at Next year's ballot because there's gonna be some controversial guy a rod We'll probably be lumped in with clemens in bonds. Even though he was standing next to joe biden why was he ignored because his girlfriend would singing forgot her name. Big papi the guy who said people who take right should be taken out in maimed and then he got popped for it. And then you get some guys like jimmy rollins and ryan howard. Speaking of the fills Marcus shera one of the hugest horses asses. People threw a party when he left is respective teams. And a guy who some of you will say. Come on really him. I think he's deserving. And that's tim let's say rick. I thought you were very harsh judge. I am but two time cy young award winner multiple no hitters multiple world series Yeah the all star game in yankee stadium. Did he picked the wrong night to party. He did apparently taken out of his hotel room on a gurney because he partied so hard then the excuse was he's he's not feeling well. How always love that. There was a story. I can't say the guy's name is told me in confidence but there was a story about a guy at spring training one time. Who had back spasms. And i know for a fact that guy that got into a fight and he got picked up and slammed on the sidewalk in scottsdale. That was that was his back. Spasms so i mean y- but still big time timmy. Jim I think i would give. I don't think he's getting in first ballot. And i don't think i.
