Talk about actual baseball.
Yankees angels -- let's start with the -- We think this is gonna die and it doesn't go -- I'd be stunned.
-- it goes six.
Basics that would not be surprised yeah I think the Yankees take it in -- and I said earlier I don't know that much about the angels I've seen them play and I know they beat the crap out of Boston finally because they matched well with -- but I just don't think.
Imagine that well being with -- you -- with the Yankees big -- I think the Yankees and we were talking about this before went on.
What I mean -- -- phils fan and we said this even if you don't like baseball you look good team like the pills and he said they care about each other.
There there's a lot of -- turmoil of the -- team cohesion.
They have each -- back and I think the Yankees are becoming that team I really.
See them you know it's like it's like -- there wasn't even a -- You know that that show that noose around his neck onkyo was gone even -- game one entity had these they had a rod gets a hit but don't you agree -- -- the Yankees are that team.
Like the Philly Philly Glock were hanging together by mess up -- pick me up.
Run I think they -- -- until that thing like I I laid a number on somebody asked me during the season about a rod and I said he makes too much money.
For what he contributes to winning.
And I was talking about the playoff games and and you know for a -- that makes that kind of money and what he was contributing to winning with all these other teams he played -- including the Yankees.
And and this year I'm.
They -- I'm sorry I mean I was wrong he's playing like the guy that you know he's earned his money.
To share -- made it made the load a little less for him and he's he's responded behind that.
Nick Swisher that.
Kenyan the only -- dropped ten ball in right field and -- you know when he looks like I haven't more money Alabama -- -- and so -- -- -- -- against the you know that that you go.
They're having fun with this and you know baseball was meant to be -- that way you keep the Phillies play that way they look a lot lighter -- yankees had this humanity that you already -- and I agree but these are making it no one thought on the payroll let me see fifty years people -- we'll look at their money normally says.
Well look at the money this team doesn't look like that that we call -- corporate.
The corporate kind of structure although I love the teams that we had -- I was.
And -- PR -- all those teams and I love those guys and you know we have Paul O'Neill and Bernie and what was wrong with those guys but this is your basic.
You know that little frat house -- in your face type thing in.
You know they've got something very special going that set and runs it runs -- this before the show we're talking he -- the four best teams aren't.
The four best injury you can make case for the cardinals but but but I -- I believe that the four best teams.
And I think -- your -- do believe saying it's the four best records in baseball though I think for them and still the Yankees have something special I told Brian Cashman back in June.
After -- game might you've got something special going here and set I think you're right.
But you know the angels do -- The angels are a little bit on mission -- that the tragic loss of -- ignored the first week of the season that that is that's -- that's a team.
That's -- team there and do all the right things that are played defense they're not gonna make the mistakes that I mean.
We you can make the case that after three games Minnesota could have been up two games to one.
Absolutely okay that is -- everyone jumps right off they keep anyway and then they -- they ran themselves out of basically.
Out of the playoffs the angels aren't gonna -- that mistake.
What I what I think of you but don't match up well I'm not sure that the angels have the picture especially -- Yankee Stadium that's gonna get that line about.
And I don't see -- recording 27 outs at Yankee Stadium and an -- Before the Yankees have more runs and they go I just don't see it -- -- I think this is going to be if you think one thing a side note almost decide that they have a great owner.
-- a great manager they just love Mike associated with the players this is you have to years they just keep playing for this guy.
The best manager in baseball in the post season Joseph Torre might function.
Yeah nothing against Joseph Girardi used to get right jobless but he pitches he's in his third season as a as a Major League -- And number two and man oh man I bet you other guys got the -- ring don't worry about in his glaze over and then we find this -- -- -- hasn't -- Anyway -- -- think the best through negligence and all the best for him that I did things about a simple easy to -- I felt like -- was maybe -- This day it does keep it in the American League so is everywhere you -- the -- six or seven.
I have predicament.
They signed by the okay.
Two things in the American League before we move on by the way do you feel as an and they get it right move.
Pitching CC sabathia possibly three times.
-- -- It was the fact that -- CC sabathia -- I mean look at what the big guy is a money pitcher.
It -- but he didn't draw from Milwaukee from Milwaukee last year what -- completely distorted what's the story -- well when you don't have a fourth starter this story we're going -- -- when -- -- -- I talked to -- two year last few years and I hope they're talking about the job -- as a starter he does a great woman the wife is -- -- -- -- hundred and -- you could do that you could win the series that -- look at the world.
No you couldn't you -- did -- is exactly it absolutely that good.
But yet he hasn't done -- they warned them that.
Don't throw like that when you don't you start you you know you're an entirely different mentality.
When you start your statements some moment timing and try to use all your pitches all the time from the get go and you're trying to start the game in a way that you you know they -- you may -- change the next time through the lineup so you're not the same pitcher.
When you come out of the -- he comes out of the pen with his gas and he comes they get -- please don't throw strikes.
I'm wanting to -- tell me that this news coming out of -- -- 91.
Last week and is that a guy did you seriously hurt -- because you can't throw 9697.
For four and that's yeah that's.
This mentality that rapid -- one -- Brett -- was was a starter for the Phillies got hurt came back when independent great depend though like all right well we got laid selectively bringing -- his starter -- struggled.
Because he's in the first inning throwing 95 miles and I'd like how -- I gonna do that support them by the time you get the clown music turned off you don't get three runs down gone into the second.
-- did you know that number and and then at MPH number is always relative to its relative to how you locate how you move.
-- kind of movement are you getting on your pitches right and we grow you know that's a relative number we all get excited about 95.
There's 95 guys I see in Tripoli -- can't get you out I look.
I've never met Joba Chamberlain would just by listening and they're being nobody.
-- know if I see him surviving because after.
And did a lot of username.
Yeah you know and believe me he's he's incredible what -- Appeared together I don't know I think you get me ten days ago so I guess -- -- any Canadian he wasn't kidding.
If you read between the lines -- the fact that Joseph Girardi pulled me in before the Boston game at the single most extreme I'm telling you we you're auditioning here for the post season.
Get a good game is Boston and bomb against the royals -- a sitting them.
Well I don't know if they say when considering you for the first seven game series.
Last year as a fan.
With very little baseball expertise.
I'm not the general manager -- never will be I really said wow they have found the heir apparent.
To Mariano Rivera you got your perfect setup guy and in two years just like in 96 Rivera's setup Rivera who was a starter in 95.
With the setup man for -- and then became the closer I -- it's the perfect transition because everybody's always saying -- -- is -- to be much different.
When they don't have Mariano Rivera and I thought here's the perfect right out their belief was he starting -- is far more valuable.
-- -- -- I don't believe from where I said that it translated -- and Joba stuff as a relief pitcher translated to being a starter.
And I think they saw when you close the book -- When we know why they have yeah all right.
They're idiots what they did the Joba Chamberlain and don't get me wrong again I'm not an MRSA well -- three -- but what's being in which in spite of what they did you said we all agreed that's a human -- and we talked about business and -- seven during -- game you can do.
When you care I mean you have to groom a closer like mad Cindy tried to make -- a closer.
Can't do that out of the blue you have to be that eighth inning setup -- look at Duane ward Tom -- -- -- on doing with the National League.
To the Red Sox rebuild or just reload and we did they -- tear down this is something needs to be done over there are they just have so much -- just.
Wasn't there you.
Well they have a lot of talent but they've also got -- age I mean David Ortiz Jason Varitek.
They've got some decisions to make I would make sure -- -- -- Jason.
-- locked up today.
I think that's a key.
And then you've got decisions to make but I think.
If they stay healthier so they're starting pitching is solid battle mountain -- this isn't solid and we'll talker and he's just.
-- -- and I don't think there's anyone in baseball who didn't love watching him blow that game.
Could he would be typical -- that you don't Mariano Rivera said the other day not think he just got to acquiesce to have a bond yes yes yes yes yes and -- and you even read of all the Mets beating every time he doesn't say they still Papelbon in the dugout and he's not.
Hurting pristine he's angry -- we should never does it -- you that you keep touching.
Sagan -- and obviously you.
-- -- get around them realize the answer to this question is.
Make if you adjustment -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Bill James baseball baseball abstract they're they're brainpower in terms of finding guys and using that higher order stats to.
-- evaluate and make their decisions they're going to be fine with that you know -- they've gotten locked into some older -- thing.
And you know in this day of a multi year contract.
You usually have to go through it a period where you where you've allowed yourself to get old and you still have these contracts.
And you got to play amount a little bit and I then and then a minor league system is gonna start spitting out some guys and injured severely reducing fields week -- -- There's -- story today from Peter Gammons saying that everyone in baseball knows.
Then Jeff Wilpon is the real gentleman here that team has twelve womanizer doesn't job he -- -- is making decisions and can deal with that is that what you've heard right now.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Wal-Mart and all organized the general manager of the Mets Jeff Wilpon didn't go out.
And trade Ryan Church for for Jeff Francoeur he's not making those decisions and in my opinion is -- making.
Big decisions that they don't want might -- I'd I'd like to get back Frankie Rodriguez or look yes he's.
He's the final thing I -- you know you can go ahead and do that.
But I believe that all Mormon I.
-- -- And -- I don't I always heard that that Omar was the guy that that was that was getting between Jeff Wilpon and those kinds of baseball decisions that was the way I understood.
That -- came in the door now.
You know what goes on in in the room I'm not privy to that and and and I -- and I don't hear that I'm I'm around the team enough I don't hear that.
You know you know obviously Jeff Wilpon has plenty assay and aiming -- -- -- the guys here is the only as the guy and you know they're looking hard now when when the perfect storm of injuries.
Whatever you were going to be as a team this year nobody half as as experienced that kind injury thing.
But you have to look at that and then you have to look at what are the other things we're gonna do with this organization.
To start making what I think need to be better decisions with the young talent.
And and and development development and I really developing -- -- Players and -- -- the point one thing that I have learned.
And I was with on the inside of Major League Baseball.
For seventeen years -- you with him in particular group that we as outsiders and I'm now an outsider.
We have no idea.
What goes on.
We would we well we would have -- -- right that was doing well I'm not what.
Even the beat reporters have no idea what is really going on with the team because we hear it came a daily basis and -- And your GM is on the phone seven times with the owner.
They might have screaming matches -- I had this they might be you know we just don't really know what goes on with the team.
Gotcha all right now let's go to desert of the nationally we found the pictures -- -- -- good work to have -- there.
So this is run -- go to -- and run that would be your signature that's for -- I knew that that's what's driving it.
Apparently they can read these old signature I should say everybody looks like a dog yeah inside your ball that day you know that is the cats that he thinks that world championship -- put that Dwight Clark bastards still live in my right now that they can -- -- -- a little more.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm glad everybody has seen the game the time with them and say well you know we're up on the Orioles two games to one.
It's game four.
We have a one not the lead in the ninth inning Frank Robinson.
Boot pal back to back singles no one out.
Runners at first and third one out and Brooks Robinson -- my heroes up.
You know and he bangs he -- -- -- sinking line drive to right center field and I'd just break in that.
You know that sort of hot immediate.
Focus your -- in a World Series when everything is just so crystal clear in your.
You're wired in a way that you you can't be you know in a regular season.
I just make a break tomorrow right now I'm thinking I'm behind the curve on this one you know phenomenon and I took my line and I'm -- and it with a and I think in this is gonna find mother earth before finds my glove you remember thinking that you're not gonna get.
-- and I'm not going to be there and I just said well we got to lay around and I laid out and hit you can see the ball in this -- -- look at that right in my wedding which is the safest place for.
-- in the webbing that club had some snag at the Rawlings.
And and it has some snagged -- it okay and and it when it got my web violent.
Well man you just made one hell putt.
Am now yeah.
Now I are you hoping that they thought like you -- thing.
What the empire don't see you know it just.
Brilliant archive about you know this the -- -- you know they they missed some things and we didn't have really played an appeal to them in the right.
But I caught not I'm moving ahead and I do this whole spinning thing and I come up and I make a pretty decent throw to home plate and I always wondered.
Thank goodness I was pulling it that way because I just kinda threw it where I was -- his gun and you know you're hearing this here in this wonderful space you know that that that you know.
I've worked with videos -- I was a bad outfielder when I first came -- the big -- -- you know Shea Stadium is a very -- stadium.
Lot of fly balls and line drives never come out of the seat so it's a tough background for young outfielder tonight.
I messed them up every way you can mess in my.
I think that I have any of those coming on the end of his -- what he hit me one line drives and ground balls from about a 150 feet away and these are all those balls and that -- zone read.
And you read them off the fungal that you read that ball off the bat and that's the first decision you make as an outfielder -- the ball.
Qaeda envision how much gonna catch this ball we'll have that situation and make them via videos wore me out so that yes yes greatest player I ever made.
I'm thrilled to death to be 65 in this thing is still mentioned you know as World Series catches go and and and but it was the result of all that work that I put into -- run that we get this you know if you go to.
NY daily news.com.
Forward slash catch.
Think you know don't.
Don't forget about it until we get -- and they'll just read my daily news.com forward slash catch yet that these you know you can go to nice catch and run at gmail.com.
Would have given what did you make it a surprise.
I think that it couldn't possibly the -- okay and they go around that thank you but I hear about one of the ball you botched that none of -- to have the ball everywhere you possibly.
Go into the -- I have a glow in the hit a matter of fact you -- -- strange thing about the glove is.
I was never do Adler.
I'm a big art fan always happen.
Impressionists -- I went to Paris and I got immersed in art and architecture I came back and I started like -- stuff.
I just started drawing stuff.
And and and I did it about a year and it culminated with one night I'm sitting out -- the -- counter where we dinner and I threw my glove up on the -- there and I took out my little pencil and took me about three nights I drew this glove.
And I went after.
-- -- I drew this glove I didn't draw flies when I was you know.
Growing up but a couple years ago I drew this glove and it's a pretty good rendering them and I was like.
Well let's just talent.
And I stop -- hit that that -- -- -- -- I don't think so.
No I think they would take it but why do you wanna take it put in the basement somewhat of -- technically -- I Cooperstown -- it was -- the hall of fame somewhere where people can find it again.
And I -- it somewhere where they got enough room for.
All of Asian candidates they just at a strip club right up front and that's not gonna help you I think -- how serious injury -- itself -- -- like okay the -- Cooperstown is if it's it's it's about the fact that baseball lied for years about.
Where baseball came from.
Cooperstown and and and Abner Doubleday never happen no connection its routers from England and and where was Abner Doubleday he was a union officer at fort Sumpter when PG Tebow regard.
First shot from the simple plan -- 'cause I'm in the balance you pick it up from here people don't know.
Maybe I'm glad I -- made no -- battery you go to college football -- is moving from South Bend, Indiana.
To Atlanta oh really but I would say right now the real baseball there's a leader who presented that was -- -- -- -- -- the email Papelbon acts like Rivera when he was young.
Locals is getting angry at a loss her very -- out of the system fifty years ago is everywhere you never know that's not whoever that is an -- but waited -- Hey way to defend your Boston closer.
My -- -- -- in this weekend.
Yeah so angry and -- -- that I hurt my back helping the other day that fell off the ball long.
They have run it's a question.
At this what the lord Jesus you're you're -- -- local stations in New York.
I worked at WCBS.
When I came off the ball diamond or what you know I I had an opportunity to come in and do local news and it -- I ended up doing twenty years of local television here -- there most.
Unions that she's so good it was a lot of people would just say this guy no idea that you weren't playing because.
You -- -- instant transition -- keeps touchdown run it wasn't.
So he -- a storm so we get some type of power from the miracle Mets who said that well this the the fact that -- yeah that's -- that's one of the reasons let's talk about our agenda next Saturday it's going to be hard to go to Matt.
-- from that messes this in this series is going seven the angels of motivation -- made no art no ways but.
But 32 stringers crazy speed on the bases they have puncher chance I would enjoy a dodger Yankee matchup though -- the series -- -- Then you'll have to get Yankee Stadium Friday or Saturday will play or Sunday if you.
Weather permitting with a with a win OK -- that would let us.
