"Let's go to because it's different and you focus on I think desks desks the deal because you don't see it a lot. You don't see the ball come out of Aleppo into San as a quarterback I. Think you look at it Oh man look at it. It's different. So let me appreciate it a little more than you would with the right in. Yeah I know our in our producer Marcus probably not happy. Didn't mention Wade boggs when it came to the left handed their scrub. Gerald Strawberry Yeah I. think Gerald Strawberry Swing was prettier than Wade Boggs swing Wade boggs a little more of an average guy but average hitter. But I like straws swing now marks chiming in with will Clark will the thrill had a nice shit and I swing as well? We can left handed swings all day long all day all day all I can relate to that Steve Mariucci. Surly knows into quarterbacks better than anybody because he Costa Hall of Famer in. Steve. Young. So I had a chance to catch up with him and talk to him about the left handed quarterback in the differences between coaching right hand and elephant. Coach you mentioned something that I don't think many people understand challenges are differences between coaching. You're right handed quarterback. For and then coaching the left and the quarterback when you're the head coach and deflate caller was different about coaching into quarterback. Yeah. That's I I don't know if I've been blessed or cursed with lefties around me. Okay I don't know. My wife left handed my mom left handed. My daughters left handed my brothers left-handed everybody's left handed I thought there'd be fifty percent of rural left right hand doesn't that make sense? And it quarterbacks we haven't had a guy in the league play left handed quarterback in years. It's like. World Left. He's going Ed Steve Young and then add mark Brunell over there in Green Bay when we together and it is a challenge in fact one, one, one year after. The season was over I told Steve I. said, listen I want you to work on going right handed this off season. Okay. So I don't have to I don't have to every play over just for you and your backup is left handed like like Brunell was okay. You remember when far was starting and then we to backups tidy up. and Mark Brunell loved them both I mean love these guys and and we couldn't decide who should be the backup and who should be the third guy who's who's inactive. So what we did alternated. Just. To keep them both happy we alternated that messes you up because when you're on the goal line, you don't run past new corner quarterback one way, and then you gotta practice the other way for further left-handers you do spread right option sprint left option you gotta flip your play action and movements, and that's a third of your package maybe more and..

Toronto another huge game centimeters of days when he talked about no good travel budget I mean didn't even involve the giants but that wasn't very very memorable day of New York baseball but I I'm sure you saw the media coverage was when the Mets traded for Stroman religion what the hell what they think they're going to win with with what kind of a deal is this and all of a sudden you know they keep saying the guard to keep Wheeler they've got to go wrong they've got a deck of a four man rotation there and they got maps and they're winning and this time this played out time early for out in the in the in wild card yeah it's the whole loss column thing you know you get more losses for the cubs and the cardinals the Phillies and all these teams and the teams that are at fifty six fifty seven losses the they're still there if they don't have that separation yeah I mean there there's no maybe the always a lot of teams ahead of him but with the way they patch it ourself once it was going to snap out of Islamic thirties maybe pass him in the rookie of the year at least in my mind that you know well fonts always use I gave her sixty four or something he'll snap out of it and start over again and you know Jeff McNeil at a ball into the river in pitch for yesterday there there okay I mean there it's it's perfectly York last week they were joking today and I was champion confetti is a great and then at the back page of the the post that when Cashman didn't make any trades the headline was a walking deadline and they had a zombie like Kashmir well I think that was a that was good **** I mean the the X. really did nude you need to do something because they really don't have any any pitcher that they can count on your mind as a young guy who knows he's never catch in the post season everybody else has some issues and they didn't they didn't do it I mean they're just lucky that that the red Sox for some reason Marty or are just really not to just really not good this guy there you have got the World Series hang over we've seen it yeah the ABA's or have four or five games on Boston yeah it's a bad hang over I don't I don't they might they might somehow sneak into the wall covered it's very doubtful to me I mean you got with Cleveland and you know it Minnesota is is a factor there if for some reason Cleveland takes the lead in that division Minnesota's a frightening team so yeah I don't see Boston there now I agree with you on that you know those funny we talk about the back page of the post then all the cartoons in the headlines do we need that here I know we have the bad reporter who I love that guy in the chronicle I love seeing that stuff but do we need something like that in the sports section of cards it may be will it mall and that we need a cartoonist I'd love to have a cartoonist again because you have to be good yeah there there there are there's been a lot of people take a stab at that and you know course Willem Willard mall and was was great maybe get some of those New Yorker cartoonist you know and it and have somebody else but the baseball context to it but it's it's a fabulous thing when it works because it's it's always like this or like mad magazine is right on the money with a little touch of sarcasm and send the faces are like in the old big pony of the faces on the wall everybody's facial features were exaggerated and hilarious way and it's really good fun when it works I think I'd be great I really do that's a great idea yeah I think I'd be terrific The New Yorker thing I'm not sure you have an elephant talking to a porpoise get off the rails there if there are any real you know you have to try to figure out what the animals and saying to each other you know which is always to do yeah well it Mullen Amadi was another one there been great hello yeah well we have bill Gallo actually alley every good yeah yeah that would yeah I'd love to see it I I think it would be interesting yeah we can pull that off here why not there's got to be talented people in the bay area yeah I would think so all right will Smith let's talk about him for second last night watching the ninth inning this is not Marianna Rivera this is not a chance in this is not Chapman this is a guy who comes out and pitches and he had a maybe is best any ever last night you talk about how that slider works against left hand hitters in the courses at its best and you know it's low and away and kind of a strike maybe ninety maybe Kelly opera with two strikes but on the right hand hitters that page when it it it starts out looking like a striking at once winds up down around your ankles you know it is wow I think he struck out story with that I'm not sure who it was but I mean that's that's a great pitch to both sides of the play which is not everybody can get away with that I mean you think about it a hobby or Lopez I know he was frustrated to come out of games at times is his left ear left the stuff was unbelievable but they didn't always let him go too far against right handed hitters it's a pretty good argument is he was a kind of a picture to it with the Smith without a doubt is if you don't you don't take him out because the right and here is coming up that's for sure now I mean for him and I just pull my scorecard out for a second but strikes at I. N. at a looking they had the black man okay you get a little nervous any strike story out there you go yeah and the great pitch man are not against them the little head so now its first and second it's a one run game and Murphy's up to you know he's a three yeah a great hitter and he freezes anything any swings of supplements five feet outside and this is like a Wade Boggs discipline guy that was it yeah it's amazing I mean the the giants keeping will Smith was so important I mean they're not going to win the whole thing but you know he's going to keep them in it if they keep playing good ball keeping the games because he's going to keep a minute because they're they're not going to be in the night so when you win one run games yeah the only way you do it I was talking to well about this a little earlier Sparky Lyle was he that kind of pitcher member the slider great slider use use us for awhile he was he was a quirky idea to be a couple breaking balls he he he had a great variety and he was a really tough kind of tobacco spitting guy his left ear left the stuff was a metal marker in in in a similar way yeah they were getting more of a hard thrower was no yeah what we're getting at the heat yeah and that was the beauty of him because he could be he had a world class that small and great breaking pitch and you know he was amazing to me that a guy who was that good as a starter we noticed the red Sox in the fourth of July and then he becomes an elite reliever you know small said that but I mean that's really rare for one missing before we go Sam Dyson's on the DL you know he gave the twins I thought to tremendous outing yeah with cheese reporter I feel bad for him to get to bed at a canal bicep tendonitis cities on the I also no blow back to the giants though and then you wonder I don't recall I think his last start it looked like he looked pretty much like Dyson is last are with the giants in the I mean I think he was damaged goods I mean who knows the human army of them has a mind of its own in the morning the story I got a feeling yeah I'd be all right for a great conversation nice to talk to you this morning as always have a good Sunday okay already starting next week all right that's good done as Bruce Jenkins of the chronicle more coming up right after this talking baseball.

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.

"Had with it pitchers have all kinds of grips that impart all kinds of spin on balls, their sliders and spinners screw balls and all of these things and hitters have to try and recognize them. And anticipate how they might break. Can they tell from the spin on the seems what's coming at them? Sometimes a slider. For example. A lot of hitters will say they look for the red dot in the way, the balls red seems are sort of coming together. And if it's a big sort of dot the size of a quarter that is what they call a cement mixer, and has just sort of spinning there, obviously, and it's not going to do much. But then again, you guys like Matt Williams who played a longtime for the giants and Arizona Diamondbacks and some other teams. Said he took seven thousand at bats in the big leagues. He said he'd never saw the dot on a slider. He's like, I think it's a myth. I'm just saying I never saw it. So you know, a pitcher who could throw a slider without a dot for anybody guy. Like Brad lidge for the Phillies had a big advantage because hitters just didn't know what they were looking at. But yes, some pitches have tailed tailspin. I talked to Wade Boggs about I looked at his stats. I said how were you able to hit split finger fastball pitchers? So well, and he said, well, I could see the ball tumble. I could pick up the the action on the ball. And I could tell when it was going to tumble and based on where he was throwing it. I knew it was going to end up. But I said, well, how'd you do this why at twenty twelve vision? So when my vision when my vision got a little worse and it went back to twenty twenty. I couldn't see the Tombo and I struggled just like everyone else. I'm like. Okay. Well, if you're if you have Wade Boggs is hitting skills to begin with and you have twenty twenty vision, then maybe you can see the tumble on a split finger fastball. But for the rest of your mortals, it's going to be tricky talk a little bit about the state of the game in twenty nineteen. Pace of play is a big thing these days. I mean, it just seems that games take forever. Are they slower what are the rules that that are being imposed to try and move the game along well, mainly their their cosmetic? They got rid of the intentional walk at least the aspect of having to go through with throwing the pitches. If you want to intentionally walk a guy, you just they fired his waves and down I but most games don't even feature an intentional walk. So that's not going to do much. They shaved five seconds off of commercial breaks. Again. It's not much that you're going to notice they tried to regulate how many mound visits, you can take not necessarily just the pitching coach. But even fielder coming over and talking about mound of it was six last year and now five but most of those things really don't affect the pacing of the game. The biggest factor is that there are so many strikeouts now and that pitchers need obviously three pitches to strike out a batter, and there's probably going to be a ball or two in their foul ball.

"No, his brain knows how to do it. He's Michael Jordan. But he may not know it and be able to explain it like someone who really stinks shooting free throws. You may say that makes no sense. No, no. It makes perfect sense. Perfect sense. It's why my buddy Wade Boggs. Well, Wade Boggs one of the semi buddy. I don't know wait. But I find him on Twitter because I love Wade Boggs. But Wade Boggs was not blessed with a bunch of tremendous physical skills. You never lot of power. He wasn't a big muscular guy. Wade Boggs had a learn Pete Rose to how to learn how to hit. So we had to learn all the little tricks all the little nuances all the little things develop his hand eye coordination because it didn't come natural. Like it does the some other athletes athletes on I'm not suggesting Jordan Jordan's, a brilliant guys one of the greatest businessman ever to come out of professional sports. It's just in the name. We all know don't take it personal format attacking join. I love it. But you get what I'm saying. Like Jordan was genetically is just amazing. The guy was born with the ability to jump. Mean he could dunk from the free throw heart that is you ever see how far away the free throw line is. It may not be as easy for genetically gifted people to be able to explain to others. That's the difference. When you're sixteen years old. You haven't taken those lumps. You've got to fail a little bit. You gotta strike out a lot you have to miss a few free. Throws you know, and Joe's, right. That's the difference between knowledge knowing sixteen year olds can have a lot of knowledge gosh, some of them are super smart based on the emails like it. But the knowing part just chronologically based on your lack of skills in the workforce. Because you haven't been there is just not there yet. I'm sorry. I don't mean to break the bad news, but good point jump. Glad you brought that up. Excellent. Ed mcmahon. You are sometimes even I forget my own material. Thank you, finally the electoral college. This is an obvious one. The Democrats want the presidential race to become a referendum on the New York, your California. Basically, they want to they want New York and California to run the whole country. The electoral college was designed to diffuse that the tyranny of the majority you don't want to wolves and sheep voting for what's for dinner. It's been used the thousand times say stupid, people speaking cliches, but that's why I try not to use them seriously. But that's a good one. And it just makes a lot of sense. The tyranny of the majority is very real the founders never wanted a popular vote. They didn't want people in population centers where it with wasn't California. Obviously, it wasn't no California at the time. But they didn't want population centers to be able to dictate to the rest of the country how their specific policies and their states. We're going to work because their policies. In their state were very unique to their states. You don't want Wisconsin cheese farmers being dictated to how the cheese market should run by New York stockbroker..

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.

They were they were to watch. Absolutely. They go. They're very methodical.

And and they do play the game the.
