Epic night of regular season baseball on Wednesday to finish out the regular season joining us now as a Major League Baseball legend Fred McGriff.
Five time all star World Series champions -- 493.
Career home runs men if you only had seven more could never thought about that at all.
All right with the club argued to come back you still look like you could with the close of that regular season the Red Sox blowing a nine game lead.
The Braves blowing an eight and a half game lead how -- the postseason possibly top what we saw in the last couple of days.
And weeks as compared top of that that this past wins it was unbelievable baseball's in the best baseball.
I've seen in a long time but.
The rays are so hot right now they may be -- carried on through it and win a world championship in just surprise everybody I think the Yankees may look back and say.
Man -- -- beat them all win tonight.
They may be sit at home when we're -- -- have to play the Red Sox and so.
Now some say it's the best I thought it was the worst baseball editor cinema Red Sox fan so it hurt and I was gonna ask you about the biggest surprise you see coming is that what -- you think.
Is the biggest potential surprise here that Tampa Bay could par lay all this momentum all the way to the World Series could we see another small team like Milwaukee -- the table.
I believe so because the rays have a -- itself dissimilar to the Philadelphia Phillies.
And that they do is just get some timely hit and -- come out of the blue shopping yesterday hit a couple home runs so they just.
Our robust so you gotta be careful haven't seen it Diamondbacks play a lot this year but for them to win ninety games they haven't had -- to have -- -- pick -- staff also are -- He wants to know about his Phillies you say the Yankees will go to the World Series against the Phillies can anyone beat Halladay.
-- Walt this is ridiculous can anyone beat this thing.
On Paper no but that's -- you gotta go Lott played a game so we shall see.
What happens they have -- ought to have a great team almost all starter position.
Ryan powers and these are our great players.
Time will tell.
You do have the Phillies over the Yankees in the World Series -- that's your prediction on record no question okay.
I -- -- story developing.
Over the course of the season and -- in recent years that Major League Baseball is actually examining.
Banning chewing tobacco which goes back to the very beginning a baseball.
I've played and it was -- in high school it goes all the way up through the ranks minor leagues are now banning chewing tobacco.
Colleges are banning it should Major League Baseball.
Kicked tobacco out of the game.
But they've I tried it my first generic about Travis got off sick to report might forget is bound to think they should just ban and I think more -- should educate.
Have -- more commercials and so forth just let the young kids know and even the current players know.
-- that -- that chew and tobacco have phone you're you know cancer and some everything else and just.
Really stick to still -- put a stop to the steroids of some I think that's more room.
Bigger issue you know sure.
Banning tobacco will be tough but you got some gas and still superstitious.
That is still plan now -- if you take.
You know school to back away from me to thank all the sudden this guy may start -- and He made the consider this a mental thing you know it would baseball players -- -- -- like by car.
Up on the line and.
They got to put -- you -- former Spartan way.
Just ask Nomar Garciaparra if you wanna run superstition that this is the most superstitious game.
On the plan and I never thought Obama from that perspective they have to collectively bargain that would players ever give away chewing tobacco though.
They were try harder fight it there nice to see young guys like Stephen Strasburg saying look -- gonna set an example I'm not gonna do -- I'm not going to be like everyone else I wanna set an example but.
I agree got to be up to the players and there's a nice shot.
Are some -- if your opponent but don't you don't forget that you know you're -- dugout and guys should tobacco he's trying to -- on issue -- area.
I don't think they did just running at six hoarding is -- time Fred McGriff five time all star thanks for your perspective play.
