"You can have And enjoy a wonderful meal. All right time to bring in one of our favorite guests, and I appreciate him on this July, the fourth that is Mark Simon of Sports Info Solutions as you know, Mark a, Simon says. Twitter. Mark, How are you on this? July 4th. Hi. I'm good. I just finished a bowl of ice cream looking for OK? Not too much. There was a president who had too much in the 1800 somewhere and that was the end of them. So That's a good boy. Just right. Not too much ice cream. All right, let's talk a little bit of baseball on that is we do have baseball coming up. The team is working out as we As we speak here at Oracle Park, and I'm just interested with you on all the things that you guys do it. Sports info solutions. What should we expect? What kind of a season should we expect for a Brandon Belt? Mikey Stransky or someone even big like a Nolan are Renato What should the season looked like 60 games for these guys? Yes, I think you have to kind of Kasserine is kind of in your head. Where does Bay Way tried to do that? This week? We do like a static. The week's newsletter and wait touch like where the leader should be like a guy hit 20 home runs this season. That's that's really, really good. Someone who could probably do it like Alonzo, could you it? Nolan Arenado could do it. But you know more than you might get a go a guy with more than 20 but you would finger that the legal leader is going to be in that like 18 19 range. We have to kind of keep that money hits. We're so used to, like 200 hits being this this major milestone, But now I think we have to think more in terms of like 75. Uh, kind of hit total assed being a more realistic one for a 60 AM season. The thing that's really throwing me off like trying to figure out wins because you probably know it's almost like they should Chuck the wind for good this year because having a Ah you guys that it started Patrick's 34 innings getting to your question on belt. So, you looking what Brandon did the last couple of years And I guess the good thing is, there's so many things we have to take into account here. One They in theory, but they should be very fresh in a month where the bullshit fly, so you would hope that he is going to hit his fair share of home runs. But what's going on? We're gonna be we're gonna be like 678 It's not gonna be like it's gonna be weird because he's not going to hit 15 my trophy to keep in mind with him. I think the projections for him Take a lot of his minor league stuff into account, and they think that he's going to be good this year as he was last year. They think that the league is going to catch up to him. So he If he doesn't hit 10 to 12 home runs that that could be why it's just difficult like it's. It's weird when you think about how this year is gonna look compared to all the other years in 1981 to kind of base it on. But this is considerably less in 1981. Sorry for the long answer. No, it's it's a great answer, because I know the listeners. They're putting some context now to the 60 game season into some numbers. I kind of think maybe the starting pitchers and maybe the veterans guys have been around a little bit more. We'll go those five innings and we'll take you to the third time through the lineup that bugaboo of the third time through the lineup. I have a feeling the veterans were goingto pitch a little bit more than than maybe the experts think. The shooters in the year. Cole's like the star dies, I would think that that's true. But there are a lot of teams like the Giants beyond Cueto and Marja. Cody and really air You really excited for anyone to pitch more than five innings? Probably not a good number of teams that have that kind of country. He might see yours or go like nine and two in this with Ah, Lo e R A. But I think he's gonna be. I think he could be the exception. More than More than the rule. Okay. What about a team record? You know, it's 60 games. Give me a record, they'd say, OK, you know, it may not look pretty, but actually, they had a pretty good year. Yes, I'm thinking about this from get three teams in the NL East perspective because I think the good division there is clearly stacked with good but not like super good teams and Like if my team if my fillings in the brain was 33 27 after 16. I'd probably be a little bits of pointed. But if you think about it, 33 27 converts to 89 wins. Which is a good year like you would feel at the end of the year. If you if you went 33 27 repeatedly you'd be dating nine would be pretty happy with your team's year from Nigerians. Perspective like it's funny because I think the swing for them is pretty great. You could see a scenario where the Giants could win. 2021 22 but it's 60 names and you have a good number of veterans on the team is quite against too smart to get to a certain post gets up to the certain belt, and Crawford and Longoria and all those guys. Maybe they go 31 in 29. It's the Giants are 31 29. I would think it would be in there. It will be considered a 1,000,000 a year for them. Yeah, you know, each year marked a Simon says on Twitter, Mark Simon of Sports Intra solutions with us Each year I looked at the 1st 62 games and I say Well, you'd like to, you know, get to 34 35 wins. If you can you feel really good. Because then you have 100 to go. Let's say you want 50 and 50. Well, you've already banked 35. So now you're at 85. Just going 500 So I like to see that number in the thirties. If you khun get their, uh then it takes pressure off for the second half, but that's how I look at it, but I understand the percentage and it's It's a good image for us 33 27. 89 wins, You could consider yourself in the playoff mix. That's pretty good. Hey, it is July 4th and George Steinbrenner's birthday and, of course, the one of the most famous no hitters. Dave Righetti pitched one on July 4th against the Red Sox, and I guess it's most famous for the last out of striking out Wade bugs. Yeah. Dave Righetti young pitcher at the time, very impressive in terms throughout his career, And I think those giants listeners would for not allowing homeruns which translated over to his work is pitching Coach. Certainly with the Giants. Hey allowed. Hey! He had Years in which here l like in his rookie year, he lived like one like 100 innings. The timorous that that was that strike out going back to the to the no hitter under 32 pitches, So he was at the The end of that line, I think in terms of pitches, and they said that the last pitch in particular was memorable because they thought for sure that onto into the pods will be expecting something else. Him a slider. You complete it really weak swing that way Bob took for strike Great, Good Red Sox lineup that you're facing that Taylor, a couple of guys robbing bad years, Boggs, Jim Rice and Dwight Evans to Hall of Famers and another. Very good puts Tony Armas. It's an impressive no hitter on certainly made more memorable by the day on which it was fabulous in the last picture of Dave Righetti, who we love getting Wade Boggs is that's that's the one that I'll remember forever. One other thing that we talked with mark about, and there's always part of a baseball history item that we love to throw at you.

"Lose Bill there you no good. Now finish up. You just said something about finishing up with Larry. Yeah, it was really just Larry Doby jumping into that game and playing regularly and a young player 17 years old. I got drafted and, ah Ended up going the world work. I think there's one or two and and this the perception of him coming back and playing professional baseball and one of the very good second baseman Larry was a very good player. Yeah. Amazing. So I'm glad we could touch on that. All right, Joe Maddon today said, you know this is going to be weird. But believe me, I think we're going to go back to Maura fundamental baseball. I can't believe it until I see it to tell you the truth because you've been analysing it on Comcast and I can be our for a few years now. But Joe man says no, We're going to go back to steal in some bases, Bunting and fundamental baseball. Do you believe it? No, I don't because I thought that era was over. But again, you know, he might be bringing shot back up just to put in other people's minds. And you always do that in the media. You bring that up. Okay? Is are they gonna But in this situation Hit run. We haven't seen that in years. I would love to sit back in the game. I think that's a big part of the game. We talked about that awful. The weeks we talked with run all the different things that have changed different errors of baseball when we played compared to how they are now, and I would love to see the bunch sacrifice bunt coming over. But I think all three of us touched on that because the designated hitter now is in the lineup everyday. So again. What do you have in that designated hitters and power? Is it a batting average? We'll see what part of the order the Giants will put their D H in and and see if that all comes back in in trend transition from when we played, But I just don't see it happening, Marty. Until they do it, I'll be in belief. Yeah, Me too. Ah, And I think you bring up a great point about the D h being there. It just changes the game. You don't have to play for a run unless it was the top of the ninth. Their bottom of the ninth. And you know you want to get that guy into scoring position, But even then they don't like to give up out. They did. They just don't like to do it. So yeah, we'll see. We'll see where all that goes. That that is a part of baseball. Why was Joe Madden was right, But let's see what what he says. And what he actually does when it comes to the game. Hey, we celebrate their July 4th, and it's the no hitter that they've Righetti through. And you know we're getting so well and that you were actually pitching in the big leagues and in 84 hey on July 4th, and then no hit the Red Sox and at last out of Wade Boggs, Wait. Bugs come on. One of the great contact hitters of all time misses the third strike by about three feet. A great slider from her Getty. You ever talk to Dave about that game or your thoughts about Righetti and and the no hitter? I have many times and he said he was this on that day. You know if you look, he said, it was really humid in New York that day. You could see it in his uniform. You know the socks all dirty from the perspiration. That he had and you could just see the uniform color of the jersey and you could always see the humidity when you see those Midwest Games East Coast Games in July July 4th is one of those days. Human is hell in New York, but Boy. Did he throw a gem? You know, I kind of looked it up a little bit of we're talking here. Nine innings for walks. Nine. K's the only face 29 hitters and I looked at the box score and Wade Boggs over four. Jerry Remy over four. Dwight Evans. Over three Jerry Jim Rice was over one. He walked generalized Rice twice. But that lion was pretty good. The rest ox threw at him. And, of course, all the right hander's against Righetti being the lefty, but he was on fire that day. He had that nasty slider, and that was one big pitch. He got a lot of people out on or gonna roll over on it, so You know, I always tip my hat to great days. And there's no doubt July 4th is David Getty's No hitter for the Yankees? Yeah, always remember George Steinbrenner's birthday is a big deal and Righetti They always say around July 4th people start calling Remember? Whoa! Oh told us that when we talked about forgetting that he was one of our spotlight coach is one of those things Where things Marty here. That was the first no hitter since Don Larsen's no hitter Perfect game in 1956. I was just looking at that. That's a long ways. When you think about it, Don Larson in the World Series of 56 forget he came back, and that's very similar. How Jonathan Sanchez when he pitches first no hitter. Yeah. Yeah, It's a mate. You know, it's funny. I was seeing what I see. The other day, I think was the last grand Slam by giant pitcher Mean Mishima. Remember, we did the show and Shawn Estes member. We did something about that. And you had to go back seriously, like 1948 or so something ridiculous for the last giant pitcher to hit a grand Slam. So yeah, so we're getting that break the streak for the New York Yankees. And getting the no hitter. A couple of things one, Sir Margie yesterday and I'm interested in your reaction to this said Hey, there will be fans. The young it was better. No other way to say it. You know there will be fans of the games. The owners want it and the owners could care less. You know they're safe. We're not blah, blah. You know that kind of stuff. Would you think there's no doubt he was bitter. I'm sure you're going to hear a lot more out of players Association, as well as some of the players from different teams who we really haven't heard A lot of the players speak up yet. That was really the 1st 1 and I thought he was right to the point. He's like, you know, we're going against the owners. The owners have the money. They're going to get their money. They will allow fans in this ballpark sooner later and they're gonna have the closet. If you guess Corona virus at the ballpark that's on your back. And I think players are looking up to their You know, of course, Marty, you and I will have our cut outs up there. I got one also from K. B. R. So maybe we'll be sitting together up in the stands. Marty with our cutouts. Yeah, but I thought that's his closest I want to get I have no desire to go a ballpark. Lardy. I have no desire now, you know, and but, you know, Look, you're going to do a post game and I'm going to do a pre game and we will watch the game. And, you know, you know for you. I guess we'll hear the rap. You know, John and those guys will do it and you know they do a great job of summarizing the game. But you've got to do a post game show and not be at the ball park. That's a challenge for you. It will be no doubt about it. And you know you've done many times where you are today, and we are doing the postgame watch again, too, And I just see a lot of different things in the game, just like we all do, and and I'm anxious to hear the fans. I'm anxious to get those Collins at the end and hear what their thoughts are because they're going to be watching the games on TV is we do so It's going to be interesting to hear how they think of the game, too..

"On KNB are six eight sports leader. Carrie, Crowley, always a pretty good little guest young guy here going to be little guest. Okay. Well, I would say all right. Carrie, Crowley guest. He's a good great. Guess he's a big physical display had nothing with Fisk even lately dominion. I don't even know what he looks like I'm saying he's a young guy getting started. All right. You call mini me or something. I what I meant by. There's a guy every time wants to say about height guy says I'm five seven I'm sick of you say nice little. Nothing new his height. I'm saying he's doing this. You were five seven I'm six that was his shortest guy on my team. I was dunked on your six two which is quite a bit taller than the average merkin male. What's the average American male? He's probably about five five ten shrimp. Right. You happy with this ten. We are so lucky to get the great veteran. Carrie Crowley on here. It'd be at the bottom of the hour you like that better. And we'll talk a little bit about who the giants can actually get to improve. Crap that you're about to throw. Larry's mad because I brought in and I don't I won't say his name. But a guy who's an expert in baseball, and he just basically kicked Larry keep our thing going in the nets by and my thing is totally. It's a stunt which is not even true. But go ahead. Oh, he did. He not say it's hard to grasp. And once he inexpert becau-, go ahead. Why are you an hour? I'm not an expert, but I did grow around major league baseball my entire life. I've been in big league club houses, I've talked the game of baseball. I like to tell people that very bonds actually taught me outta hit. Exact skill taught me how to field, and I couldn't make it to the pull your lips away from his thank you. It is funny when you left somebody when you give somebody enough rope. They'll hang themselves. He basically just discredited his point because he basically said that berry taught him how to hit as a kid. So obviously, he's got a bias. He's got an internal bias. No. I just basically prove my point those guys taught me the greatest in the game. How to play baseball. I still didn't even sniff pro ball of the college player. But that tells you the greatness of very than how you, but my point is Gary's about to say bring very backing you said, yeah. Way to go. And now we're finding out that you're one of guys. Well, whatever it is. Well Anderson on here is look at me. And I'm looking at can't even look Larry because it's such a great handle the truth. Is that it's a stunt. And it's all taken from John Shays article in the chronicle. Go to get through this. This isn't a guy. Limping around a great e hit out hit everybody in the cage balls refine over the fence when more time always called you the ultimate star effort. But this really is the. I don't I don't want to spend time with him. I just want to have during a season like this. Once again, you bring him in as a pinch hitter. All right. And you tell me if I'm KNB are if I'm NBC sports bay area. If I'm triple play show. All I'm saying is if you have very wants to talk about okay, all second us at the yard the other day. Why not the say, hey, kid? He was even better Willie Mercedes. Oh, willy can't do it f p what age is it that you can do it. When you stand in the cage, and it's it's a little tough to hit. I'm just saying I think you're totally disrespecting how difficult it is. In the present play major league baseball Barry Bonds last played in two thousand and seven is. I right. Yeah. He's been twelve years well years, and he's been cycling because he's lean. And he he knows got AB suddenly he can step in against. Against kenley Jansen and drive the baseball. We're friends. Let me go to an expert. I would he do expert. I think you'd hit around two fifty to seventy seventy to eighty ten minutes ago. No, I said to fifty two to seventy. Sports. But as a pinch hitter. And I think he could do really well just because he's literally the greatest of all time. I gotta stay right here for you just to town. Why don't we get Wade Boggs, isn't Wade Boggs still alive? Well, no, they're not in good berries in great shape. If he sent me a new ballpark rides his. He lives at Ventura. Right. Yeah. And he to keep in shape. He's left the people that he loves he loves his community, but he moved to enter to stay in good shape. Correct. As in fantastic shape. Of course, he has continued. He's never leave this as his home. This is home crab. Absolutely heard a good deal at a house bonds. I've watched more of them than anybody. But come on. I watch it come out. What about this question? Even really on. My saw that Sarah. You didn't see him at Sarah Arizona's state I used to commute yet. What I'm saying? Just haven't been to sundown. Used to broadcast. Did you know that I didn't know Michael's when he was a student at Zona state was their play by play man. That's good. No. I didn't realize how Michaels went to ASU. Yes. Yes. Yes. You got to keep up here. Zoom zooming who married. Oh. You had to read that was very good. But let me just ask you just forget. Make it a spectacle. Why can't this be sports center tale? Guess is a fricken. We're looking at MAC Williamson bombs last night at AAA. Maybe it's time to give old MAC a call. Give him a call. Bring them all up. I'm just telling him to this side of the causeway. Thank you, John, Hank. Take him on a helicopter. If we do of them, we call it can say, it's the wind from the helicopter. Let me talk to the expert. How many more people would listen watch. And maybe. You go to a gay it's spectacle. I'll bet you think a lot of people would. Five. A thousand that doesn't sound like a lot. But I'll bet you five hundred to a thousand more pizza franchise. They don't need gimmicks. What do they need? Now. Eddie MAC Williamson. Do things onto trade one of these nineteen thousand relievers for for somebody who's actually majorly Cowburn outfielder was something more than resembles pop. How twenty jacks Sanchez rolls in and makes the park. Look like, you know, nothing is looks like Crocker Amazon. Bring suddenly the giants are there. And it's like, oh my goodness. They might as well be at Yellowstone National Park. It might can't hit it out of there to save their life. Wake up in their Mike is booking for Fitz and Brooks, Mike, would you be interested in seeing bonds? Let's still fired up about Kuch from last night. Mike depress today. Go ahead FA. So I got running Larry, and you I think you guys forget how many pitches Barry Bonds actually saw per game. He was basically already pinch hitter. He gets one. He has one to hit a home run. And I got this stuff. Yesterday for you. Barry Bonds in his twenty two years. Six hundred sixty eight intentional walks. The entire franchise of the Tampa Bay rays are sitting at five hundred ninety eight right now too much crap. Now, all right. Can't digest. All I'm knowing. I don't wanna hear about your stats here. What I'm just telling you, Mike, even you and you're depressed state. If Barry Bonds came to the plate, would you wanna watch it would you wanna listen to it? Would you want to buy a ticket my coal? It's Mike colour. Would you rather watch Barry Bonds hit then a guy who's trying to watch Gordie Howe team? Oh Meyer may probably. So he's so would you wouldn't you wanna see chemo Meyer s team? Would you would you be interested to see bonds once again? Get up there and hit as a fifty two year old now it's twelve years since he played I fifty five right? I mean, come on. Where's the where's the respect for the for how difficult the game actually is? But he can do it. Let's go to an expert. He could do it. Right. And no stats. He could do it. I think he can have competitive things. One of the greatest time. I'm just saying right now, the the first of all think about what he just said he could have competitive at bats. It's one of the greatest of all time Willie Mays is one of the greatest of all time. But he's in his eighties in blind to all right? Yeah. Willies is is not a cataracts in his eyes. But I'm going to be hurt last. Now, my point is when it's over it's over it's over that. I fully agree. Come on. Instead of filibustering on yesteryears superstars. How 'bout go? Find the next Barry Bonds like the dodgers did with Cody Bellinger. I mean watching LA hit the ball of the yard last night. I mean, come on ten runs. I mean, they're putting they should pour tie block, by the way, it's called up from triple a boat. She pulls Pomeranz after four despite the fact, he's only giving up three runs. I guess that's analytics, right. He goes to tie block tie block. Keep up seven earnings as Murph would say in three and a third that would emerge says earnings Ernie's him. All right. Let me just finish this by about what forget your bonds talk. What about Williamson is it time to amac? Williams already been up and down four times, the guys I think everybody would agree. The guys got other humble swim team picked him up. I know because he had a terrible spring. But he's got a complicated swings. One of those hot or cold guys. He's got the to- tap and nine different little things that he's got. Get aligned but now he's hot. Now. He's swinging the last week. He's got a bunch of jacks. Why not call them up saving get hot for ten days? And maybe not run into the bullpen mound. And let's see if maybe he could get fit. I'll bet you as you. Why? Not. Yeah. This right. Why del all I'm saying is this game's ending. You're you're hitting to fourteen is a team, which is in some ways arguing what you're arguing for which is anything should be considered. Exactly. But not that. And I'm not sitting here saying, oh, my bonds wouldn't do it. He too smart, but F P, and I I'm I'm hitching my wagon to an expert. It was football. I hit you with you. If it's baseball junior. In fact, let's wins the next guy. We're going to go out by the batting cage. I just wanna grab my crotch fit. Can we go out whenever you want? Gary seven five sizzler, you're dead wrong. Just be wrong. Seven seven five. I gotta be it'd be dead. You're dead wrong. Bonds would dominate right now. I wouldn't seven seven five dominate. Okay. What where's seven seven five? Or you know, that there must be Uranus. All right. We'll get carried on this crazy talk. Some some, you know, the same old stuff about this guy that guy, but I will ask him about when when the team is very good. And you got a guy who never officially retired. I'm just saying it would be juicy. I could feel it would be spectacle. What watch if somebody lit themselves on fire at home plate tonight as well. It doesn't mean it's sport, it's spectacle. Well, I'll tell you what I'm for sport. I'm a sports fan. I'm not a speck. Okay. Let's light up. Bam. Bam. You know? And one-stoke VR.

"Of a run guy on second. Nobody out get the guy over the next guy ground ball shortstop run scores or you're up one nothing now guy winds up on third less than two outs or no out and the next three guy strike out. They can't make contact. We see we see it all the time. These are parts of the game. When you're watching as a fan frustrate you because. Yeah, I played the game. I've played the game. And when a guy gets on third you need to find a way to make contact a hard ground ball to the middle of the field drives in Iran. But these guys are with the launch angle when it hit a two run Homer over the hurt. And lineup tracking out. And it is bad for broadcasters to so it's bad for watching your fan. It's terrible to watch. If you're broadcast. Thanks for three and a half hour games. Are you know, I to tell you that change the subject a little bit because we have a kid on our team came up. I think he's I think he's turning twenty seven this year is name is Luke boy, and he came up like terrific, and he's been in the minor leagues longtime up and down, and he's a little older and iron. I was telling him about about you and all the years of Pawtucket, and you got your chance because Carney, Lansford broke something a leg or whatever. And I said and Wade Boggs this remember this. And I said, and this is Wade Boggs, and where is he right now. And Luke said really and he's in the hall of fame. So it's not too late. You know? So it's not too late. Well, it's it's, but it's amazing. How you know everybody thinks that if you're twenty two you're upping your full developed. You didn't get to the majors for years after that. I was twenty three when I got through the big lake I spent five and a half. And a half years in the minor leagues. And and I was well seasoned by the time I got here. Sure, nobody gets five and a half years in the minors anymore. You can hit a ball five hundred feet. You're in the big leagues right now. And you made your stuff one of the best third baseman in the game defensively. Wade. Come along. And then of course, you wanted to go with the axe. So how many balls did didn't Frank Nelson and hit ground balls to you? Also now. Pesky work read me a little bit spring training. But. Yeah. Johnny was there every day at three o'clock in heavy ground balls. And then once I went over to New York Clete Boyer changed my whole more or less chance of getting ready for the field. A ground ball so cleanly work with me a lot of third on those backfield's and everything and lowering my base and getting lower and consequently ninety four ninety five wound up gold love, so. Indeed the way you talk about the togetherness of the Yankees. When you came in the other veterans joined you did you sense that about this year's Red Sox team from a distance together? They were they were to watch. Absolutely. They go. They're very methodical. They're very professional, and everyone you can you can sort of see the wheels turning in their head as far as what they're trying to accomplish when they get up to the plate. And and they do play the game the.

"So that could be an interesting you got some interesting calls the neck. Yeah. There's going to be, you know, hopefully, hopefully, we're entirely healthy. And we're going to have you know, a guy or two on the bench. That's pretty much in everyday player. And is probably you know, it's it's it's gonna be a tough call. But but one that hopefully, we'll be able to utilize in a profound way with versatility throughout the postseason. Yeah. But remember those Yankee teams that one had Tim Raines, Darrell strawberry. You know, chili Davis. Guys, Cecil Fielder guys like that on the bench. Wade boggs. I mean, those guys off the bench with deadly. No question. And and hopefully, we'll have you know, we'll have some of that. And we'll have some guys that are, you know, give us some defensive versatility. If we need to get defensive at some point in the game. Maybe have a key pinch hit in a tough. You know righty on right ear lefty on lefty match up. You know, those are all things that we hope to have if if we get entirely healthy by the end of the year. Does it has you know, I always thinking the season. And there comes a time with the dog days are over the Heat's over and all of a sudden, you know, guys start to get a little refreshed, it feels cooler, and you're supposed to think about fall have you made that turn yet as your team made that turn yet September. Yeah. I think we we have started to make that turn. And you know, we we went through a stretch there where we had, you know, so many games in a row, and we had some doubleheaders in there. And when you talk about those dog days where it's where it is hot where you worry about guys running. Down a little bit. You do see the weather starting to turn a little bit. And hopefully, we'll be able to take advantage of a couple of these off days to kind of keep guys fresh and hopefully turn in a really strong finish. Thanks very much. We'll chat next week. Thank you very much. Appreciate all, right. Thanks. Bye. Aaron lot interesting stuff with the Yankees. Lot of stuff. That's still very much up in the air. Now. Again, we're heading towards Oakland and Oakland's going to push them. See the tough parts of the Yankees. Is this Yankees? Played a Red Sox to last couple of games of the season. There's no way those and let's not talk division title. Okay. The Yankees a nine out with seventeen to play. So let's forget that. So the the Red Sox will not have any in the play for. But the Red Sox might love the idea knocking the Yankees having to make the go play in Oakland. Oakland right now two games behind. That's it. The Oakland closes with the angels. The Yankee close with the Red Sox the Red Sox play spoiler. While the Yankees might have to put the penalty metal those last couple of games just to keep the games from being in Oakland. Now, not putting Houston in the equation, first of all because Houston has gotten red hot there. Now three and a half up on the as and they've gotten. I mean, they've been the last ten days they had lost. And then there was one game. And like ten games they've been on fire. You know, they had the bad stretch. They were banged up. They've been on fire of late. So, you know, that's you send I don't think it's going to catch Houston's one ten of eleven and they want get this afternoon. So I think from that standpoint, you don't even I'm not even thinking about. No. That was last night. I thought they played their games at it. They didn't play. But they've won like ten of eleven games. They're three and a half up. Think of Oakland Oakland, San playing really good baseball. They have a break in the schedule. Because the Yankees have September the Red Sox. They have success with the as they each played a raise. Oakland's going to keep pressing pressing to get that home field in the wild card that to behind right now the Yankees might have to play right to the last day to secure wildcard game at Yankee Stadium while the Red Sox can coast and really tweak them and give them a hard time. So it's going to see how they play that. Also who pitches? Now, they can go to the bullpen very early. But they're gonna start somebody in that game. Like, I said, I think right now Tanaka get the Smalls of over half unless Severino turns it back on haven't seen that happen yet back after this. You bought a truck for a reason to haul your stuff, but to keep your stuff secure get a weather guard defender series truck box at the Home Depot..

He didn't look, like a superstar Tim sound like a superstar but man what a guy remember they came right down to the wire he. And will Clark for the batting title one yeah just edge will out by either a point or, a percentage point you know I would have I would. Say if you said to me greatest hitter I've ever seen I promise I didn't see some of these guys. As you said in his sixties and fifties and before that. I'll probably say Tony Gwynn Wade Boggs as far as his greatest, pure hitter I've ever seen and maybe George Brenton there was. Well but I would say crew but I. Mean The other guy didn't. Hit with power Gwynne Gwynn he'd upper tank. In nineteen ninety eight World Series power did he? Ever hit. More than twenty home runs maybe not that's I'm just, saying that when you go greatest hitters I still think you've. Got to? Put, the power in there. You know. Well I'm greatest pure. Hitter. I'll take I'll take Tony Gwynn okay It's, about hitting the ball. Hard I'll. Take bonds and Babe. Ruth Yeah, just I mean obviously you know Jack what's that obviously not obviously you don't know very much why the argument, bonds and we were talking about. The deal with you always underdog. You always root for the, underdog Bonds. And, Ruth listen I can't help you the kind of guy roots for the IRS in an income tax scandal trust. Me I don't root for the Living in California too but the the deal about Papa possibly being a, looks like he's being replaced by. Brent Musburger on the boomers Sizon is in Westwood One jumped out at me. Because the guy we talked with. Last, week Bruce was BRUCE'S last name Gilbert you were there at half hourly ahead of me to. Get in. With them just a barrier Bury me Bruce Gilbert, runs Westwood one's. Broadcast boomers size is no longer do the Monday night games so that's tough.

A point guard did you know that Tony Gwynn got drafted by the clippers and the Padres I didn't know. He we got drafted I knew he was pretty good basketball player after by the San Diego, clippers yeah and he can look. Up and see if he ever hit twenty home runs but but anyway and. The deal again I hate to keep bringing this up but I think I think it's the most interesting. Deal of the day is at Brent Musburger gonna do the raider games Larry I just I it's, at eighty years. Of radio on the radio I think that and yet that will get you. A, lot of national attention but boy does that do anything for you with the, with the tried, and true raider fan It's a slap in the face you, know you're replacing a guy who's in the prime of his career who's damn good with a guy who's I guess one. Of, the new faces, of Las Vegas but a guy was long the. Tooth and and you know as hasn't done what was the last time Brent. Musburger did, NFL games on the radio as he ever done NFL games on the radio football Funny how you remember talking about But, he did baseball on CBS radio but I'm talking about football.

"The air goes how, would, you have been in today's game would hitting coaches saying Alex no ground balls no ground, balls, Alex balmy. Air you had homerun power Alex. How does not screw with your, head It would have been really bad for me I'm glad I wasn't in. That area I mean I came up where? Hitting line to line, in, hitting lot neck, neck Highline drives, is the way. To go and watching, players. Through Wade Boggs Don Mattingly George Brad List was on and on about how you become, the best, possible, Ted, Williams I think that's a problem. In in things if you hit the ball hard you can't catch a train is? This. Going to go by you no matter where you're at where you're at yeah let me ask you. About this hockey. Basketball and football officials. In rules dictate you can't stand there you can't. Stand there can't stand there I think baseball's should get, rid of the shift I don't think it's good. For hitters or the game and, I, don't think there's anything wrong with it I would fully support baseball saying listen a. Shortstop can't be? On the right side of the? Second until the balls. Hit what are you what's your take on defensive shifts. I don't like it I just think they need to leave. The game alone I think you need to go out. And do within browse he's done and Jeff Luna's down down in in Houston in Brian Cashman you get players that can hit line to line if you play man-to-man defense in basketball than you. Should adjust and be play in an NC. Double a. that you adjust that I don't think you need to do that I think the game is being taught the. Wrong way I think the, conundrum that baseball's and while. The Ivy league you know very smart for an office that are advocating get the? Ball. In the air which increases strikeouts which decreases contact all the right things you need to do to. Win in order. To win a championship. You've got to put the ball in play you. Gotta make productive outs to the two examples I can, tell you Justin Turner and Daniel Murphy yeah Mookie. Betts is another one who who, can, play and play well in October because at the end of the day say whatever. You want about? Launch angles and home runs is? Gonna come down to. This great pitching good defense and timely hitting and the. Question is can you get a can you capitalize on a. Leadoff double or a leadoff walk is an offense most. Offices dancers now Bryce Harper sending to fourteen but got twenty three Jackson over fifty RBI are you bothered by his numbers do you want his average to be higher or production and home runs. An RBI or strong are you okay if. You manage them what would you say with his average Ironically has been a. Very tough first half of Bryce Harper on a two two, reasons number, one you mentioned the to fourteen batting average but I can get over that because he's a, world class athlete but he's taken enormous enormous inside the game Colin with his reputation and what I mean. By that is he is pissing off so. Many people with not running to first base and. They keeps showing these replays over and over and. Yes, he's done it like that for eight years and is that Washington nationals fall just as much as his perhaps but, here's the problem and I've been here twice when you're a free agent and people are talking about three hundred four hundred five. Hundred million dollars for, one player and you're? Not running down I base everything is highlighted on a year like this year. So that's something to watch he's dug himself a big hole statistically and reputation of being very. Interesting to see what happens Bryce? Harper in the second half by the way the Yankees have all sorts of young talent I? Mean all through, the infield all through, the outfield Manny Machado is out there You're on Carlos Stanton the veteran here's my concern is there a danger in your. Opinion bringing in another guy from another culture to, this wonderful young group of energized players who. Have tight relationships would you pass on Machado despite his talent. If you're the Yankees First of. All I would call and here's why if I have Magic Johnson I'm not gonna go out and get Thomas and John..

A great catcher, in that? Northern California scene was he and I talked baseball with him at the Super Bowl and he told me about all the posters that he had up on his wall baseball players then were they You weren't you were, not born But, I think. He loved Mattingly yeah Never like Wade Boggs I think he had like four or. Five Manley with the I, black? Mattingly was that left? Hand glove right. Is it a gamer it. Look good he had nice, show stash he's one thousand garage mustache not everybody. Can. Rock a mustache like Donny baseball yeah if you could if we had an, open draft right now and, I said you could have Mookie Betts Bryce Harper Shohei Ohtani Mookie Betts right. Now he's almost sitting three sixty period he's figure something out that team. Has figured somehow we don't talk about I'm not just saying this as as a. As a as a red sock groupie we don't talk enough about. That club because you look, at, them they're just kind of like okay JD Martinez is. Probably the greatest hitter this game seen the last two years is still you've got released a couple of years back with. The Astros Mookie Betts. At three sixty it doesn't make sense it's almost like we don't talk, enough about Jose Ramirez and Francisco door but yet, you put judge, Stanton's number up there I? Would say who do you want. Your Well we. Got one that's six. Foot nine we have a six foot five guy go check those numbers, out who would you rather have the combination of. Lyndon Ramirez over, over the edge and Stanton Why. Check, the number all around shortstop that's gonna. Hit forty home runs and, Linda worries. About this big now wonderful. Wonderful I mean extra-base hits and then you look at Jose Ramirez got thirty home runs I think if you saw them walk in right, now you'd say okay Jose That we wouldn't even, say hi. Jose we don't know the stars, in you, know some of these guys that are on the. Periphery that's part of the problem with the. Game is it us or is it the game that we don't know them as much as we? Want, no I just think we hype up who we want to hype up isn't that isn't that the? Case and then that, media like, I I could sit here and promote whoever I want to. Promote put you on a, stage make everybody know who you, are? Right it's kind of like we can market whoever we, want but don't you think you need a hook now like Harper has hook with his look. Mook he's got a great first name he's Shohei is is a novelty us, well it's it's remarkable the games in a great, place. Though I disagree with some of the stuff that you hear about, all you, know, blah, blah blah the games in a great, place east coast and west. Coast there's a. Difference I'm, sorry you're in bed for Mike. Trout's third at bat, period end of, story Mike trout on the east, coast all the writers are going to sleep after the half of the game angel's.
