"It's like thirty minutes after the game is over. Lawler this check this out did that. Who even look that up. I well absolutely you know. Let's this just in. i think there's too many stats in baseball. Maybe a- steamy. They're breaking down and they buck martinez is trying too hard. By the way i agree homerun call. You just heard there like come on out of here mr blades. Mr baseball get outta hair ball. And every says i just what are you doing well although stevie when i got into sports radio right that someone to me up saying you know that that color commentators or play by play guys are still still supposed to be neutral. Okay for for even for their own team right which you know. They're they're supposed to supposed to lay down a little bit and not be so one-sided right but but then that's why like gordie wilson right and and so eventually. It's kind of kind of natural that if you're the traveling college commentator with the team you're doing the your your color karma data for whatever team you know case the blue jays right buck martinez who played for the jays by the way right. So i'd like to go. He started he started doing it. When the when the guy would hit a dinger looking like a dinger you know he started with get outta hair ball. Get outta here up but get outta here right. He's not supposed to do that. But i like but now he's a you know easy buck. I don't mind a bit of favouritism. It always depends on the kind of broadcast. You've got going. Is it national or is it regional and in the case of the blue jays. It's the same thing you know. There's only one team canada so all the national games are also regional. And so i don't mind a bit of favoritism in there and also don't mind you know a guy like jack edwards. The boston bruins play by play guy. He's as homer as they come. But if you're doing a national broadcast that clearly is taking in a multitude of different teams. There's there's audience members during for one team and the other audience members of cheering for another. I think there is where you gotta keep some level of balance but the regional stuff which this includes. I don't have a big problem with it. It's more than it just more of the trying too hard when triple a. baseball games. I couldn't have been more bland. Just because i was too worried about. You know this is a this is a sacred thing. It's like he shoots. He scores in albrough run. Call if it's if it's if it's trite or is if it's just over the top it will sound moronic and i. I wouldn't call what. I heard there from buck martinez moronic or anything like that. But it just feels smacks of a guy trying too hard. Yeah they're the guy here. Does the oilers what it really should be. Steve associated with know the seasons winding down the regular season and the team's about to make the playoffs right..

"Just as good or better. Let's turn now to everything that's been happening in spring training and the couple of notes and things that we know people care about the number one thing and news. I alluded to earlier with the games being broadcast. We found out yesterday via rob longley of the toronto sun that the blue jays are going to broadcast exactly zero games throughout the entire season on the radio. They are broadcasting games on the radio but not with the radio team. They're rolling instead with a simulcast of dan. Schulman and buck martinez. Who are going to be of course on tv. They're also going to be carrying that broadcast. Just the audio of it. On the radio. This upset a lot of people myself included. We had already seen questionable decisions about broadcasting During spring training when the blue jay said they wouldn't be producing any of their own broadcast. Of course they ended up producing three Sports and that's going to carry ten in total seven of them are going to be produced by other teams three them produced by sports net. Right up at the end of spring training again. A lot of people upset by this. You spend one hundred and eighty million dollars to put the best product you can on the field and then you you know you pull the cheap card and the expenses card. When it's i dunno generous estimate a million dollars for the blue jays to put up a broadcast. You have the product on the field. The fans wanna watch it. Why why cheapo when you're almost there. You're almost the finish line. It's i don't understand the decision. I think it's alienating a lot of fans at exactly the time when you have to bring them under the tent and some people say well. No one listened on radio anymore. Tv is where the future lies. And maybe that's true but people do listen on radio. It might not be a sizeable proportion of fans but people do listen on radio and your major league team and to become the only team in the majors to not have a dedicated radio broadcast ads..

"They have started to begin, you know getting interest in getting support from the fans, you know, obviously because the results of you know, let's say this year they made the playoffs, you know, they were above five hundred, you know, you can see Thursday. People are starting to buy into what they're trying to do. And if you were leaving if you were pretty much ruining all of that now, you know, what was the point of this past four years during this rebuild? It's just doesn't make sense to me and I think Mark's your power will be back and it's only a certain you know number. It's only going to take you know, who knows when it'll be but it'll definitely be at some point in the future as the World Series is almost done as we approach the 2021 offseason. Yeah, I hundred percent agree. I don't think he should go anywhere if he down the line expresses that he wants to leave then you know, we can't really argue with that. But I would like to see him stay until either this core that the Blue Jays have is they start to come to the end of their career kind of like Alex anthopoulos. He left with a very aged very older old core, but overall, I think one thing we all have to take into consideration and this is more towards the people that were not fond of chaperone Atkins is that dead? They came into pretty much a mess of an organization. They had a depleted farm system an old core as we saw what happened in after 2016. They they were not good until the the younger players and the minor-league deals started to pile up really help the team, but they have built what looks like to be one of the next dynasties in the league and I think I can honestly stand behind that. I think they are going to be a very good team Joe Buck. I was watching the game 3 of the World Series last night. He was raving about the team for some weird reason. I prefer to listen to Fox broadcast over Buck Martinez and Matt vasgersian, but he had a lot of great things to say about them and you know, the recognition that the people that are educated in this house kind of field are giving the team shows that these guys know what they're doing, you know, you can look at some of the things like the bo bichette drafting that was in 2016 when they took over Napier Sportz Aston Martin, you know, they've drafted well they've done what the team needed even you know, the ReUse signing they got they got an ace they needed an ace they got maced and you know one thing they've been very common about this offseason is that the Blue Jays are going to have the resources to add to the team and you know, this shows they have a plan and that's why I kind of want to see them stay here until this kind of the end of this era of Blue Jays baseball because they, you know, I'm I'm going to assume they have multiple years mapped out for this team and I think that they said they know what they want and I think just throwing a guy into the into this position would kind of I don't I don't know if it would confuse them but, you know, just getting a brand new perspective on a team that has been a work-in-progress for the past three or four years. I think wouldn't necessarily be the best decision. But yeah, like I said, I I've been a fan of him since day one. I know a lot of people hated him hated him. Rose Atkins because you know, there were the immediate results for the team but baseball just takes time and they they took the hate but they knew what they were doing and I I really don't have many bad things to say about them..

"So that's why this 60 Game season really turned some jobs around and it really in my opinion did convince the front office at their time is now or it's just starting to compete but just because that's starting to compete. It doesn't mean you go over the top in terms of if you want to sign somebody or track someone but I do trust Atkinson Chicago when it comes to that so whatever they decide I should be fine with, you know, if it should be fine with depending on how you know significant it is often. I see them being very cautious having a cautious approach this winter and even maybe going into the deadline next summer, but that's even farther away than what's happening in the next coming months. To be completely honest, I don't know how much of a move that are held how drastic of a move the management is going to make right now because I thought you look at some of the prospects that they still have coming up. Obviously Alejandro Kirk was you know as Buck Martinez said, what was it the The Legend Continues or something that was definitely interesting but they still have guys like Austin Martin and Jordan Gross fans who are not even in the majors yet. So I I feel like they might wait a little bit for those guys to see what they're able to do because I mean if they you know, they just want to go out and get say a third baseman type guy. Will they have a guy that is like likely going to take over a third base or somewhere in the infield. So, I mean, I feel like I've said this all throughout the summer. I feel like this offseason going to be very quiet for the Blue Jays unless they sign internally and what I mean internally, I mean take their their upcoming free agents or guys with options and extend them or dead. Keep them around for next year because I feel like this still might be a an offseason of or the sorry, not this offseason, but the the plan for next season is to still see what they have and what they can work with off. I think you Embrace and you mentioned taijuan Walker. I think he is a must an absolute must because the rotation obviously hundred years going to be their their number one starter mate Pearson's likely going to start well pretty much as a guarantee barring any injuries, but aside from that you have a lot of guys that are competing for spots. So, you know, I would prefer to not have the majority of the rotation in question. We're going into next season and I think our lockers good he had thought of one an area of one when he was with the Blue Jays which he was, you know, he he definitely proved that he can be back next season and I think this will definitely it'll be interesting to see how they handle it. But also I want to see guys like Anthony Pascal come back. He's a free agent. He struggled in his last few outings, but I think the back end of the bullpen off, you know could use them. Obviously the lease has a club option definitely needs to be exercised. That's also I think I must especially with Ken Giles essentially out for next season and obviously is a free agent. I mean they would have had to deal with that anyways, if he was going to be playing but overall, like I said, I think this is going to be more of a we'll see what we have and type of offseason and you know the guys that they can in sign that they've they've got to start see on their roster last year will probably be kept around if they're going to buy I think it'll be minimum. It'll be we'll have to wait till next next summer in the trade deadline see what they want to do, you know if there if it's kind of like the 2015 Blue Jays where they had the pieces to make a playoff run or make a you know, they add kind of reinforcements. I'm not saying they're going to go out and get like a David Price type guy, but maybe that's when they start to say. Okay, we need to get guys to help us now because you know, we're ahead of schedule. But you know at the same time we gotta win with this roster we can prove that we can win but overall. I think it's just going to be you know, very quiet offseason. I think it'll be quiet offseason in baseball. You know, I don't think we're going to see a ton of trade. I mean the free agents are most likely going to get you know that are dead. That people want are going to probably be signed but I don't think we're going to see a ton of big moves just because of how weird this season was and you know, the uncertainty of well, maybe a good team here won't be good next year. So it might not make sense for a team to you know, go out and really reinforce that team because I mean anything like we said anything happened sixty Games season, but it'll just be in Georgia see what they do and I think overall it's just going to be pretty quiet, you know, see what we got and next year if we still you know, we still have a good roster then will then will you know will run with that. Yeah, I agree with you I think wage like you mentioned just to state in baseball right now the fact that so many teams lost out on so much revenue is certainly going to play a big role in whether teams actually give out and get home big names. I think in considering when the Blue Jays are going to buy when they're going to get that as Ross Atkins called the super high impact player..

"You know some. Follow their sport, but they're not you know that's hockey fans for example, but. I think in the end. Really good athlete just like a really good doctor lawyer or teacher or what have you. enjoys a little form of entertainment and and the athlete who's playing also enjoys their sport and other sports as a form of relaxation. And they can see. Who's got an angle if you're on every night like we were. And who? WHO has an ax to grind and who doesn't over time right? So I think through the screen, we not only me but a lot of the folks that are network earned the trust of those playing the Games. I, really feel out in my heart. That that, we understood not out of you know, run off tackle. But respected what they did. And They foul up like we do on the air as you pointed out in the fairway. That's fine. I think they understood. That we respected how good they were, what they were trying to do wasn't genuflecting, but it was just be fair. And I think that. Shines through the set again, we had the pulpit every night that was unusual. About forty seconds left and I, know this is a difficult question. But as you think back over your career, all that you've seen is there any one particular moment that's engraved Chris Berman's mind? Well. I mean there are many obviously I'll go to one. that was I was fortunate enough to be the voice along with Buck Martinez and and in the stadium when CAL ripken. Broke Lou GEHRIG's. Unreachable Star you know two, thousand, one, hundred, thirty games played consecutively. And that was September Sixth Nineteen Ninety five is a lot more to it than that. We have a short time, but if you want to say one thing. That was more than sports. It was more than baseball. It was like America. Somebody, packing his or her lunch every day and going to work yes it's baseball. It's not the coal mine. But reporting into work everyday doing the best he or she can and then and then never calling in sick and just doing it even when you didn't feel great and. That night I still get goosebumps thinking about it I wanNA. Thank you Chris for your friendship but it's been a long friendship and one I respect and I admire and I appreciate the time take care my friend and let's get together if you come through San Francisco. I look forward to a thanks Ron always a pleasure being with you Chris Berman again, Chris one of the founding fathers of ESPN he has been an anchor for Sports Senator Center on. ESPN.

"The ESPN radio network, or I'd be filling in for Colin Cowherd or Mike Tirico or Dan Patrick loved talking to Buck Martinez for Major League baseball catcher Current Toronto Bridget Bluejays broadcaster and he joins us Now on the J K Show, Buck. It's good to hear from you again. How are you doing, buddy? John and doing well, How are you doing really well, and Buck. I gotta tell you, I'm dying for baseball. I just There's you know, we've been talking for so many months about sports being back and I swear I can smell it. I can smell we're 19 days away, I guess right now from what should be opening day. How do you feel about the restart of baseball in the plan? You know what? First of all I gotta say, you brought back great memories talking about Bobby Cox. I was fortunate to play farm in Toronto, of course, before he left and went to Atlanta. But He's a great He's a great man, and I stared and I stared a statue. When I park my car on Sonia. I'm staring right at it. But as far as the planet baseball unlike you, and so many baseball fans were all very anxious to get the game back on the field, But No, we're still a ways away from that. We've got to get these players through. Ah, spring training summer camp, if you will. Healthy and you know, each day we have another player make the announcement that he's not going to participate. David Price, the most recent And of course, you know, in Atlanta, Freddie Freeman City. He's Been tested positive and you know, players are going to get it. And it's just a matter of how disciplined each particular team is. Says to how healthy they can stay. And the Toronto Blue Jays are in a unique situation because they have to cross the Canadian border. Of course. And they hope to do that this evening. Buying from Tampa up Tio Toronto's hopefully everything will go well. They're working out today and dunaden and then they will travel North. When you When you think of the the stories, I'm gonna hear it when one what was at 1.1 point something percent 2% of the 3000. Some tests came up positive. And then you realize that the majority of the people who even tested positive race symptomatic does that make you does that make you feel pretty confident because This is what I guess. Every American workplace that has stayed open has been dealing with for months. Yes, you know what's really interesting is We have Ah group of athletes solve across the board, professional athletes that are dramatically focused and Their goal oriented. Their time schedules are terrific, and they're very disciplined in their preparations for each individual sport, and they have all been given the instructions in the protocol of how you stay healthy and I would hate to be that one night it strays off campus and bring the virus into your courthouse. So I think they're the teams generally going to be pretty good about this. And I think with the blue Jay situation they're going to be Basically quarantined at Rogers Centre. They're going to stay in the hotel inside the building. They'll never have Occasion to leave. They're going to be dead in the hotel. They're gonna work out in the hotel in the ballpark, and they have four different clubhouses so they certainly can Utilized social distancing in and regard and they will work out. Yesterday, Ross Atkins talked about that a normal spring training day is 3 to 4 hours long. While these spring training days they're going to be 12 hours long. Going to have different ships. Different coaches on do you know they're just going to keep shifting in the players keep it the exposure at a minimum so that will help avoid any kind of outbreak. Fucked is the 60 player pool. You think given advantage to certain organizations around baseball that they're just deeper there just smarter and I know a guy you know very well. Alex Anthopoulos running the Braves, He's got a locked and loaded minor league system. I wonder how these managers are going to use these players that they're going to have access to in a 60 game season. Do you just roll the dice with your best players from the major league level? Or do you try to get a look at some of your best prospects and get them in there trying to make sure everybody's rest? Did and up to speed on. I think this has got a chance to be one of the most interesting seasons if you will, but we've seen in a number of years because of just what you said. If you have a young player Days, double a triple a player, but he's marvelously skilled like Pasha. You bring him up to play center field for a few days and then and he can win you a game or two. That's going to be very valuable and you know this is going to be a sprint. I think we're going to see teams have a different type of different style of play. Trying to score first trying to score as many runs as possible hit men running a little more aggressive. Remember, all of the teams have been off this lengthy period of time, and their defense isn't going to be a scheme isn't normally would be So I would put pressure on the defense by running using guys that can hit ground, You know, departure from the norm of baseball in the 2000 Chains. I would go to a different style baseball right out of the chute, especially when you have young athletes like the Blue Jays and the Braves. Okay, tell Mae would you do you think in a 60 game season with this kind of flexibility and these kind of demands Are you better off having the old school manager or the new school manager? Ah, that's a great question. You know nobody's moral school than I am. But there are so many great aspects of the analytical departments. Now that really complemented old school. Like what? Brian there in Atlanta. He's certainly old school, but he had Teo. Open up his mind and then utilize some of the information. I think if you Khun blend those two, you have the best of both worlds and obviously with Takuya and al bees and the speed they have and the Wants and you could do a lot of things you can catch. I think you can catch teams. Black put it if you go back and play the eighties and nineties style baseball we saw in the major leagues with that. I am so looking forward to baseball. Bucky got me fired up for it. And when you do get to come to truest park, I'm gonna hunt you down. My studio is right next door, and I'm gonna buy a adult beverage that that would be terrific. John Anderson, take care man. Blue Jays broadcaster Buck Martinez joining us here on the John Kincaid show on CBS Sports Radio, one.

"And last night was a perfect example from what I've heard drove in driving in just how dominant he can be when he's right? Yeah. No question in Josh Donaldson after the game was talking about the great composure that he has on the mound, and he's going to become an important part of this rotation as we move forward.

Swung on a high five all left centerfield Laureano back going back to the track it right to the wall the ball carries. And he. The ball goes all the way back to first base. He throws it over the bag.

And then I thought no that wasn't the greatest double play over. I think the greatest double play ever for baseball. How about buck Martinez with a double plan? I know you know, that one well, of course, book book Martinez, tag, two guys out at the plate at the same time and broke his leg in the process. That's the game. Is that the play the play? Well, I saw I saw Bo Jackson catch a fly ball in left field. Wait. I got it wrong. I can't go there because I can't remember if I've got it. Right. But yesterday BUSTER was that was absurd Laureano did yesterday. I off to take the Homer away. We can't forget how high that sense is in Oakland. So he has to go way up to catch it. Then even though it's not recommended the throw he made from the warning drag airmailed I base in the air by mile and then the key number in. There is to as you said eight to two four that the catcher doing the right thing. There is backing up that play that was as bizarre as bizarre double play as you'll get. But not as good as buck Martinez, breaking his leg and tagging out two guys at once. And if I remember correctly, what happened was is that buck got run over on a collision at home plate the way. The game used to be played. He got run over at home plate but held onto the ball and tag that guy out, and he's lying there on the ground writhing, his leg shattered, another runners coming forward any tags him out as well. That's what happened right? Yes. That's exactly what happened. So he didn't just break his leg on the play. He broke his leg on the first leg. Pardon the pun of the play. Meaning the second tag didn't break his leg. The first hag broke his leg. And the second hour was made by catcher making a tag while. He just got his leg broken. That's what made that as amazing. Double plays. You'll ever see. I was watching that game for the Yankees on Saturday. And when you see Aaron judge take that swing and immediately grim issue. Like, oh my gosh. Like, you can't believe that he's coming off the field and some of his teammates told reporters after the game. I think it was Brett Gardner said. His first thought was Aaron judge never comes out of games. He's never heard any saw when Aaron got to first base. He turned and shouted an expletive which you don't ever see from him either. He came off the field..

"Observations are going to be in ten minutes. They're very popular funny. You should stick around for them. Ten minutes from now, we will get all of stugatz observations from along five days off. So there will be plenty of observing being done by Stu gods. But Mike Ryan has asked me, and I don't know why we've decided to do this today. But this is where I have stumbled. He is asked me what I am trying to do with these names, Tommy Tucker. Ville and Ken wizened huts. Good question. And it is a good question. Your responses just been more. That's correct. And it seems to be the wrong response. It seems to be an incorrect way to go about it. How ever this is what I'm trying to do much. Like, we said, the teddy Bridgewater. Sounds like a children's book about a stuffed animal saving a town from flood. We came up with a whole list of of characters like Kevin Quackenbush. The Padres pitcher who sounded like a duck who comes out of the weeds. It just the right time to help. Teddy saved. The town peekaboo street was the name of a road. The teddy Bridgewater uses to look for dry land. And his children's book catfish hunter the mystical guide who teaches and looks over. Teddy Bridgewater as saves the town Muffin McGraw, the mayor who enlists teddy Bridgewater for help pins. The achievement rubbed ribbon on his chest in front of the townspeople. After he saves the day. I leave it alone. That's what I want to do. I want a tub Ville. And I wanna in hunt steamed toy train. Rain situation. I get the tub Ville port now. What are you trying to do wizened hut though? Is that the bathroom on the vote wasn't hut? It's also not as. I think we should just keep calling him wizened, HUD, at this point. Yes. Sure. Now, he's a Pirker joint. What are the rules? Wiz. That sounds like a porta potty company to me. That's what I'm saying. Yeah. So long way to go to knock get fined. So you want to build out the boat characters stuff the train Smith has to be somewhere around the Smith. Conductor one is Smith's job. What is Tommy spent doing weight, it's a boat. Now. I don't know why God's keeps making an a boat. I'm not sure he asked me during the break. What are you trying to do with the boat? I just realized that that was a question from five minutes ago. And he was asking about the train is really confused about one of trying to do. But I don't think any of you are in a better position than he is on this. I feel like all of you are a bit lost. I've got the wizened hut. Protecting us from lightning. Like an invention a hut. Go under like on a golf course over the boat. I feel like you're doing a whiz in hut. Porta potty situation just because on -tario Smith running back for the Vikings years ago. Got caught with a wisdom. Nater a whiz Nater which was masking his urine with a Latin beige fake peanuts Christmas too young to know that reference stuff extending him so much credit. The why isn't that why you guys are doing wizened hut as the as the porta potty situation with sounds like PP? That's right. That's why it was called the whiz Nater. That's correct. Very good. Excellent work. Chris you're always right on it and eloquent son of a writer. But what are we doing? Why is there a boat? At a hot. That's protecting us from lightning. That's what I'm asking you to do fill out the story the way that you did the teddy Bridgewater story when you told me the Bubby Brister was the fat little hedgehog teddy always stops to ask for directions. But buck Martinez, the wise old deer who helps teddy with a with his bridge in order to save is heard from the flood. But that's up..

"Even though these outings in general are less interesting all the time because there's so much more common Kratz like Alex blandino who pitched for the reds recently showed off a pretty good knuckleball. So again, we are considering talking to position player about how they develop. Good knuckles, but it seems like Kratz has one, longtime backup catcher. I have podcast with him before, I believe, or at least interviewed him before for articles, and he's kind of a smart guy. He is evidently developed knuckleball on the side too. It's not the best time for knuckle balls in general, because who do you have you have Stephen, right? I guess, is kind of carrying on the knuckleball legacy right now, except that he was suspended earlier in the season under the domestic violence policy. And so he is now not so Ruutel anymore. And then I guess you've got Mickey Janice is a thirty year old knuckleballer and AA for the Mets, but just not a lot of knuckleball prospects around these days in RA Dicky's absence. I don't think Dickey ever officially retired, and he was actually pretty good last year, but he's not pitching and probably won't pitch. So I don't know who the next great knuckleball hope is, but guys like blandino and. Kratz just seem to have knuckle balls in their back pockets. And because of the way that position players are being used to pitch more often than ever. They're actually getting a chance to show off those pitches. So that was one of the outings. The other one Perez was notable because he threw a forty eight, mph pitch. This is perhaps one of these slowest pitches on record. He hit Austin Barnes actually was a forty, seven mile per hour pitch, I think. And he hit us and Barnes in the back and Austin Barnes asked what this felt like said it doesn't feel like much. Listener. Matthew emailed us to ask what malpractice pitch would we be able to be hit by and not be in excruciating pain. Haikus forty-seven is one. It's I don't know how high you'd have to go before. Both of us would break down and cry kinda depends where we're hit right. There are certain areas where I could withstand greater velocity than than others, but I think I can take fifty fifty. Nothing fifties out nothing but fifty slows down to about forty three, but dammit gets you. I think maybe forty four. That's not. That's like, I don't know what's? What's the velocity of punch. I've never been. No, I've never. Have you ever been? Have you ever been in any sort of physical conflict? I have not been punched. I have never been punched. I I hope that means not very punishable either that or it means I'm a coward who is avoiding fights all the time. I don't know what it means, but I'm pretty non-confrontational. So I've, I've never really been even close to being punched. Okay. Yeah. No, I grew up with an older brother, so I've been in. On. I don't think I've ever been possible since. Since I've had like family skirmish type, things are like kindergarten brawls, but not like actual punch. Right. Okay. So I think we could both take fifty in. Let's got us like maybe right on the back of the elbow or like in, you know, the look. If it's the face, there's no philosophy where it's good to get hit by a pitch baseball rate. Yeah, phase bad. Yeah, I broke my nose getting hit by a, not even a pitch. It wasn't even a pitch. We were just playing catch in the park. I was in eighth grade and a ball bounce stuff at tree root and took a funny hop. It hit me in the nose broke it, and that was bad. It wasn't the most painful thing to break if you're going to break apart of your body, but it was a lot of blood. So if you get hit in the wrong place, almost doesn't matter how hard policy going. It can be pretty bad. I guess we just answered one for Email show another fun thing about position players pitching that recently, the cubs lost to the cardinals badly in that game. Dubs used, not one, not two, but three position players picked that was timeless Stella. Victor, Carey, teeny Indian hap-. They became the first team since the nineteen seventy nine rivers to use three position players to pitch in a game brewers used Sal Bando, Jim Gantner and buck Martinez. But this is something we're starting to see a little more of its teams using multiple position players in a game that there have been think four such instances already this season..

"Boasts says my favorite pitching line in history came out of a game where lens sakata put on the catchers gear for the first and only time in his career and it was because he had no experience behind the plate that tippi martinez got to set a record on the mound and then sakata hit a walkout threerun homer so this is from a nineteen 83 orioles blue jays game i'm sure many people already know what game um referencing but many people don't i'm just gonna play a quick clip of a much younger buck martinez talking about the scheme that is on youtube in one game we had three runners are far i base in the same inning there was the runnerup just couldn't wait to get the second base because he knew we could steal with levy sakata beyond the quake but fate pitcher was to be martina saint picked him off for the first out the second run iran i believe it was david collins john sullivan was the first base coach he walked over he says us new got one out that'll get picked off hitting it was rows would be a big fell collins for the second out of sean got odds rally garnered i'm the better and solar walks over again insist okay i got to us he can't get picked off now concerned are in through where refers both fall further thrown around there for the mets so there were three pickoffs in that inning so lynn sakata who was the second baseman in that game moved to catcher because there had been a bunch of pinchhitters earlier in the game into they used at the bench and it was the ten thinning and for whatever reason they ran out of players and had to shift a bunch of guys around and so.
