I can't walk this guy. We'll see if he can throw a strike here. He does not want to walk. David freeze. Now. The pitch there's a strike on inside corner Freeze took a step toward first base, and that was a generous goal. George Kissel always used to say whatever you get.

Get something that comes out over the plate here pitched inside for strike One will throw from the belt brings it into David Freeze, a swing and a ground ball of the third baseman out of second last two innings.

"Back into our cardinal classic rewind pregame shows we get set for game seven of the nineteen eighty two World Series the cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers you know the cardinals were led by an incredible manager the hall of Famer Whitey Herzog and what impact what he had and continues to have on the game here why he in his own words and his style of managing well basically I don't think I did a lot of things different I was in that situation and after failing miserably in Texas and I'm far before my first year was up by the I stepped into a wonderful situation in Kansas city with a good young team a good defensive off from and a big ball park in the people think we just sort of plan our running game of St Los if you'll check the phone I have five years of anesthetic we used to steal two hundred basis years there and we have over four par them ahead St Louis but the big thing about so what I contributed to the game was that the you know Oprah was planned running game Charlie Finley had her Washington and some of those guys that just fence around and so forth but basically when I come to save us they were levels are twelve home runs every year in the twelve team league in the ballpark was tremendously big three eighty five of the gaps or fifty the center about three fifty down the line so I changed the whole concept of what happened the way we try to play baseball because I we couldn't hit a home run and in the wake of the lies the bar the other team in our ballpark so I just kind of went with speed that which is the one thing in baseball you can use on both sides of the ball I mean you can use it on offense you can use it on defense so that's the way we put the ball club together and then every year we start out trying to break right Maris's record as a team and some years we did I think most years we've been there like and I when we won the World Series I think going to that we have his sixty seven home runs as an example while walking with his two hundred twenty one or twenty eight like but we could play pretty well because fundamentally we've played some baseball and defensively we could really cut off the ball in the gap what incredible manager the hall of Famer Whitey Herzog in nineteen eighty two World Series champion that I'd seen eighty five manager of the year and what he had some pretty fun weapons to deploy including Bruce Souter Anglesey Bruce at the tail end of this game game seven of the nineteen eighty two World Series but how about the closer the hall of Famers sat down with Tom Ackerman a few years ago to talk about not just nineteen eighty two is legacy but also what he likes and still take from the game today the quarterback you know goose Gossage and Rollie fingers and you know get to call the Indian cuisine very there was a you know a lot of difference but it was really you know when the game got into the seventh inning that was our territory you know when we get a we saw what we had a lead you know after seven innings so we were going to win that game and and you know we're going to going to jail and you know why he would use me there are a lot of times for six seven eight outs and would worry about tomorrow the next day and and get a today was more important six seven or eight ounce I love it and you know I love seeing the two inning save it's rare but sometimes you'll see that call Jonathan Papelbon to get the call in the eighth inning often for the red Sox and some closers get it it's exciting not that the ninth inning isn't but things have changed over the years what what has changed mostly burst well but I don't know it just seems like you know before a lot of times the starting pitcher was handed it straight off to the closer and but now that it seems like the the it's scripted you know this guy pitches the seventh this guy did you see a distracted just the ninth and the starter you give me six innings and everybody's happy and and you know it it seems to work for a lot of teams yeah I don't know if I was managing the day of the awful tough to me not you know if I got a guy on second base the the time run in the eighth inning and I got the other team's number three four hitter coming up and I got one out and I got to get these two guys out there be awful hard for me not to bring my clothes are in in the eighth inning it's still holds true today doesn't it you just have to have an established closer to win in this game absolutely I mean that's where the whole game is displayed it's you know it's the whole strategy the burning of the double switches the you know steal a base or we're taking extra bases you know goal is to get the lead the hand off you can get there is full time guys first we're going to see in the next few years I would imagine the retirement of Mariana Rivera who knows how long he's going to go but you just Marvel at a player like that don't you just being able to do it so well for so long yeah he's been he's been special and he's you know he's basically what I was was the one pitch pitcher you know his was best for my was splitting but you know he's been so amazing that you talk to hitters our voices all I wanted to pass by one it's better he does a fastball every pitch they know what's coming they know about where it's going to be and yet they still can't hit it and that's how special pitch he has and and how durable yes he did when he was set up for John wetland you know a lot of times he would pitch the seventh and the eighth and hand the ball to whether because of nine Deming and you know you were saying that Prabandhak committee tonight then so merry although even at his age now you come in in the playoffs and the you know the world surgeon pitchers last two innings yeah he well and you know I I still I see the splitter and it's out there you introduce it to the game really in the closed position the split fingered fastball do you see it off and I see it here in there I guess most famously John Smoltz smoke you know down there to let you know he would deal with some you know I think probably the the best one that I saw you know that my was Jack Morris you'll have a great one when he was pitching for the twins here Jack really had a good one and we don't want to order fifty some games and you know I think one day he'll get his chance to to go to Cooperstown yeah Jack Morris what a great pitcher he was right some of the younger guys Dan Haren use that split fingered fastball quite often as well how about the cardinals and you know we're talking about early in the year that they were able to acquire a closer in the off season they're going to have to go back and forth and try to figure out whether it was J. Samatar Chris Perez and here comes Ryan frankly this comes in close games are more regularly he's got the great leaders got great stuff obviously you know and then and get a closer that you have to have that but a lot of it is just to make up the mental part of it to be able to handle when you have a a game when everybody gets a vote to you and you don't do the job you know are you able to come back the next day to go out there with the same confidence and so party scene but you know he hasn't had to Medicare days but you know he's been able to bounce back when he has a little bit a rough time and he's done a great job for a couple of hall of Famers help get us ready for game seven the nineteen eighty two World Series outside there right now is we are gonna be treated to a great evening of baseball I'm Chris ready.

"Can't blame him for that San Diego isn't such a bad place either. Although most Miami ends don't like to go west of the Everglades. Right. You too have taken this highly respected man who we've quoted many times and turned him into an internet joke. Have you not? No, we have not you're right. We have not you have not turned him in. He's just tweeting a lot he gets along. Gets a little bit of frustrated that he keeps tweeting a bunch of crap. Yeah. And so every time Heyman tweets in the next three hours. You'll hear this sound from Michael welcome back. Mike, by the way. And that means John Hayman is tweeting. That's actually funny. Johnny. No, I was gonna say a on bocce. I don't want to say had no choice, but pretty darn close to it. If you have one year left on a contract, and you got a brand new guy coming in with you talk. He would dimension how he manages with his gut so much if indeed he wasn't trying to just slightly get in there that this may not be for me this new setup and a one year deal to have all the players. And obviously the media wondering, hey is this it or what happened? Oh, we've lost five in a row is this the end for bocce nobody wants to go through a year like that. And if you're pretty Sal. Baseball's just gotten so big. And so popular that it's in the old days. He could have just rolled with this all year answered a couple of. Hayman is tweet. This time he says, so I got at least one contract prediction. Right. Yes. Exactly. Right. And it was an old article. He wrote I guess he nailed the Machado. China. John hayman. One right human side of Hemant. Hey, if if these are gonna come fast and furious. I liked it. If Brian Sabin was still the guy that boats had to answer to a who knows? Maybe you know, he'd stay. We got a new guy in there. You gotta fool around with a with a guy twenty five years younger than you with all types of different ideas. And there's nothing wrong with nothing. The believe me the reason that far Hans there is because the giants have cash and only cash, and that's the problem and they haven't been good for two and a half years right now. Because all they have is cash ownership group has done a phenomenal job boat. She has done a phenomenal job the front office in the last few years has failed. They have failed. They've done a bad job. The farm system isn't producing the signings have not been good. There's lots of contracts that everybody in baseball would view as bad deals. So that's that's kind of why far Hans here in. It's not an foreign some evil genius either. He's a pretty nice guy is just a different way of doing things change people change industries change. It's now a game run by channel managers and not as much by managers. And all you gotta do is look at the salaries social make six Madden made six this last year made six. Kona made four Showalter made for Joost made three point seven everybody else in the World Series, Alex Cora at eight hundred thousand with the Red Sox. Look at all the Kappler eight hundred thousand you know, you mentioned core. Eight hundred thousand Dave Martinez, new manager in Washington, Dave robbery. And he made the world Steve Roberts two straight World Series a million dollars. Kevin cash. One of the bright young managers in the game right now in Tampa one point one million dollars a year. So that it's a shift in the way the game is the power brokers are now the GM's. Yeah. I just think it's perfect. The whole deal was perfect. I have you heard anybody say, oh, man. That's too bad or back it now. Everybody realizes he had a great Rodney won three titles. They have one in two and a half years. He got a new guy in charge. And I just think this is a good clean way to do it. Well, you know, it's funny to Boccioni ways one of the he might be the best manager ever. I mean, he's definitely one of the best managers I've ever seen. The only reason I would hesitate. You can't say as the best ever with a sub five hundred record. You can because I think you can because he managed in situations. I mean was if the giants if the giants are sub five hundred this year, and I'm Bruce Bochy. No, no. So it's not. So the rhetoric she can't it's like saying some guy is the best home run hitter of all time. And he's only got okay. Here's how I define. Game seven of the World Series. And you can have any manager in the dugout in the history of the game. Are you to go with who are you gonna go with you? Bruce Bochy is almost took re. I mean. Manage the ninety eight Padres the World Series if they didn't run into maybe the greatest team of our lifetime. He may have one that anyone three with the giants and three tries. So I if I asked you I mean to me that's how I define the best manager in the game is who would I want in a game seven of the World Series? And it's being played this year that you can have any manager in history. We go with this is the list. I compile go ahead. Billy Martin Bruce Bochy, sparky Anderson, Tony LaRussa, Whitey Herzog. Dick Williams show, Tori. I'm partial to some of the giants guys like Roger. But Dallas green there's others as fans may say Baumel, I think if who would you say if I said best manager of all time, we going well. And I mean this with all due respect. I don't wanna have to think and break it down like Billy Martin put up with him. I would say Larue greatest managers ever and fired after three years all the time. I'm not saying he was just one game. We're talking about game seven of the World Series. I would say Larue, I I would make easy step and say the third winningest manager of all time, Tony LaRussa. Okay. Okay. That's not bad. But I I just that's it. He has one more in the modern era than anybody dead to me if you gotta start breaking down too much. Well, sometimes you over think it just like who's the greatest hitter of all time. Well, what about I'd say, Ted Williams? You know last guy to hit four hundred. That's all okay. I mean everybody, and that's the thing. There's no right or wrong answer to this. Bobby Cox is another one. I mean, Tony wrestles a better manager than sparky Anderson. Big red machine led the big red machine and then took the Tigers to the World Series. That's it down and say look at the talent that sparky Anderson had. Members LaRussa won the titles with guys who were pumped up on steroids. But he also went to in Saint Louis. Yeah. Mike mcguire. Maguire was there. Yeah. Yeah. So I mean, I'm not trying to denigrate LaRussa, there's no dick old as fans will probably say, dick Williams. Who on the third one there for that was the Chuck Tanner was dark Alvin dark excuse me. You're right. Yeah. To dick Williams one for Alvin dark. So that's, but I mean that to me is how you that's how I decide who who great manager is who would I want in October. And I just think Bruce Bochy when you watch the way he managed in October the tone that he set. I mean, the the as teams that Russa had were awesome teams. Now, he did win one with the cardinals when they were not very good. I think they're working eighty three win team in the regular season or something like that. They were not they were not that great. But look at the teams with bocce one with. I mean seriously. I mean, the twenty ten giants the twenty twelve giants in two thousand fourteen giants were not, you know, one of those teams had travesty. She cow was starting in left field for crying out loud. I just think when I when I look at the the tone that boat she set in October. How confident he was how calm he was the way he handled the bullpen the way he. Handled game seven on the road. He out managed net Joost in Kansas City with way, he brought in Bumgarner and the way he managed that game. How aggressive the giants were early in that game. I I'll I'll take Bruce Bruce. I don't wanna be negative on a day. Like this. Obviously, he's he just announced his retirement. I'm just saying for the sake of the argument. I could just come back and say as great as he was he did let's say what goes sixteen or seventeen games over five hundred this year end his career with a losing record. But he managed the Padres a long long time, isn't that loyalty and that loyalty, and then you can't once again, you you can't you're not going to blame for the giants. Not being good this year. If the giants are sub five hundred so how do you stick that to me? You don't they were over five hundred and had winning seasons. We may not even have seen far hunt. You know, if you wanna get that for what's that? Well, okay. Let's say if he had won the last or had winning records. Last two and a half years. They probably wouldn't have a new general manager, saving probably and and evidence still be there if my grandma had this and she'd be my grandpa grandpa. Thank you. I mean, what kind of point is that? I mean. Losing records. But he's not the general manager. Now, you're having to think too much. I mean, it just you look at the record. How do we know? But how do we say you got to think? No. But you know, what I'm saying? How do we judge people that go in the hall of fame by the numbers? Here's the thing. People could say, well, how about some people say manager of the year award. But that's kinda faulty because it's based on a premise of this is what we think you are. And if you overachieved what we think you are then we're going to make the manager. The you know, we're gonna check Joe Torry didn't win a lot of manager of the year wards, but he won the World Series rings. Yeah. I don't know show me somebody else that won three titles and five you well by the time gets construed by people. I'm Gary was ripping bocce not at all. I'm just talking about all of fame. Let's get a hang on. We'll get to you after Andrew Baguley. We've got extra bags coming in here will break down. Of course, the big news of the mornings at Machado's going to San Diego leaving Harper wide open.

You're I mean, he's like a traffic cop and he's like three or four batters ahead of what's taking place on the field. You know, it's gold for my story. Because now we see why this guys, you know. Right. So the story runs we we did a three part series. And you know, they gave me as much time as I wanted because we had so much great stuff. So one part of it was a lengthy interview with widey it was mostly about leadership and managing and his philosophy of of how to treat players, and and how to make sure the twenty fifth guy on the team is ready to go when you need him because he's the guy that doesn't get any attention. The superstars they get too much attention. And he, you know, so he was gave a lot of really thoughtful answers. And then the third piece was it was just basically a net sound piece of that game that we had the wireless on him. And so. This is eighty three so fast forward to about two thousand ten.

I wanted to get a comment from Whitey. So I called him up, and he goes, well, I'm running a bunch of areas today. I'll just stop by the station.
