We ask him if they've got some promote the floors George Dallas. I have been fortunate enough to be well into the family over or two sports. And obviously you're privy to their style their light dial pop culture everything intertwined between eight. It day it's. It's a different what you at a particular a lot of things that are all in sports network but typically the podcast as cold starting aren't we liked Joseph dropping soon FaceBook as well. That'll be for a two week. But yeah ideas we're having real peaceful conversation just like we're out today. But it filtered it's on cut edit the first in the comes to your life dual screen saying it looked about it. At the biggest thing that involvement of the sand based on what was our eyes army came to our show so it direct that it talked into the starting nine. On Twitter broke while. All of these things are brought up and we ash all of that up out over the course of an hour or so you Mercury. The deputy editor spoke to feel like you're gonna Qatar and on abort the app support in the backyard republic happened on capitol pure. We're gonna chop up baseball out of the dark don't. Yeah it's a bomber arrested 10 in the morning on inside the bigs this is why we have degree Dallas Braden when this is frequently. As possible diversity Heidi Dallas Dallas that was enough or does there always is always meant. Amare right were atmosphere to debate about it's counts in pitchers. What are you come out on. Why so many pitchers haven't Tommy John surgery in why people are losing their mind when a manager. Lee's a pitcher rain. You know around a hundred pitches or more when we used to see that back in the day Dallas all the time this is a serious burn my saddle Dallas did people think guys armed you're gonna fall off that a 101 pitches back in the old days. When when there were four man rotation. Guys were thrown 13840. Pitches and never went on the DL I'm disgusted with the way we baby young arms I'm curious to find out what your thought is on. First and foremost want to look physically we're bigger. Longer than we ever been as human being. So the old were using or bigger that what war. Our our. Orthopedic weary and barely able and work well that we now can apply it to these spot 200. I don't know that outage struck. Potentially life are at. Indicate bigger stronger than we've ever been yet. Trial there and I'll vote does it work while dot org Portland beat them. And he talked about. If you're going to. Restricted or are happening in. Google wants to be out beast. And I feel like you're going to be able to read it could be beast but I would. End. You warm up and you used at that point by. And and it market. They're we're gonna happen. I'd Wear it they're not distract the body work out who is on the other. It goes the pitched about it is we are all. Out. Are. We wouldn't work in between. That level. And at. That I've worked very cold Lee. Which stores in out legend and now a unit at recent work pocket. About what to. I. And I meet. Record. Goat Stew. For. Yeah and and you got guys what's what's the most innings you've ever thrown into spring training in Dallas seven. Are probably yeah. That's enough to stretch a bitch you guys don't even go that deep anymore I don't remember last time houses spring training game where someone went seven. And the idea is Sri traded for pitcher nowadays what we're doing the opted out meeting that. Rest periods in between the apple we need to do or ready to handle or don't you know take a look at eighteen to beat. Well actually Obama now started to go so strong burst into strictly by Lisa and be able to repeat things like. So what about option down. We're getting on our resting getting arm resting stimulating the seven and the work it's likely that all of these App Store. Dallas what do you make a sunny grace couple starts in pinstripes and a lot of Yankee fans. What do you know wanted no hitters but I'm like Ahmad EU new orchard didn't and Sonny was OK to me. Thought I would agree I mean. I think you can see why. All of the dog and lack of why allow it a guy like rate at work. Which question mark in out rotation just about it goes out. So obviously that it was them. To try to do. Like they're positioning and now it looks like just. Keep that water and it Celtic and sport bigger now IQ. Yeah expectation what York and it. Getting. Every right. The starter Berry Berry good talent not to tell yet I don't know if you are there. But that are. Open a few quick like New York Yankees it could move hours. Do like we talked about that what we got in return or what is to search. Like chance that we understand. That you have now the eight year. A world leader but he fight a war or pitch deeper into the. The bush years out of Dallas Braden former days starting pitcher is legend really the perfect game on Mother's Day problem for me the most. I don't know emotional meaningful turf for game that I did that my lifetime is just to cool and damp cool story and now that Dallas is not pitching anymore. He's basically ripping all the pitchers out their race somebody said their Dallas. About Sonny gray not being an elite guy I got into an argument there out there good natured argument was somebody who said Sonny gray is not an ace. I civil war what role was in with the Oakland a.'s use various and he says well that doesn't mean he's in case it just means the a's didn't have anybody better so. Do you Rico wait case with a leaked or are they shoot different things depending on what you're station is with a particular club your arm. Yeah I mean look beyond it. The analytical get beat war please doctor actually it. Depending on lobster it players. So that indicate right there no matter which route look like it don't matter what it's course yet and frankly. In Oakland at times you could be in shallow meeting there. Yet to what you're dealing with and kick a guy like myself. Actually made an opening east or at a time by wind died and eight I you know we pitcher. But to. I'll tell migrant cute about it as well but I think yeah it is it to be self aware to understand. What you are Matt. If it didn't do your job and know your role but the differences. He's not captures. Rate yeah he's been he's not even John Webster. He's he's not a tree area. And it didn't seem like he was going to be that guy. Oh absolutely apps kitty I mean I'm out there and eighty. Pepper pitches in a postseason start he just give article slider that you are due out stuff like that end. Now they're talking about health but he rate hasn't really necessarily. Take him. It because he is eight keeper and a lot of people give them the benefit of the doubt and say he's a keeper at this point I can't I have to say. Searching because if you haven't figured out a major comparable. To this point sports page that you insert your constantly battling that occurred between trying to. Better and try to get comfortable and I think he's trying to you'd come. Dallas last night in the nation's capital we soft freak accident where Bryce Harper. And I'm wondering do you think this week we're gonna see baseball it I know this sounds ludicrous did criticize may be beat for fur to not have been somebody to have the base is dry when I've been watching baseball forty years. And these guys have played in monsoons. What was your take. On that that incident a kid baseball I did anything different to prevent. I don't know anything that we haven't placed right now on GDP or write that site from. At TV. They always worked or didn't take it out there and how law back in between any data that are out there. But their plan when it's raining which is why that's not and that's not even feasible right I mean they play right through these greens. Wonder what is it is it is it out or Al corporate. Backed off on meet their peace discussions about protocol movie or does. It were a triple by two but mostly due to lay out all gonna change. Right harper split. Quarterback. In implement whether or something to happen we're talking about it I'd actually net. 300 ordered a billion dollars in the next contract year and we're going to be OK well on the plastic bag out there. No doubt no doubt been crunching numbers and torching gipper material since about 11 o'clock out. They're trying to figure it. Out. And so if it's some guy just got called up from AAA and nobody knows his name. Name on you gets hurt then there's not the outcries Richardson. Absolutely not know why period Tripoli typically back story you. Are that that our production of the top might have but I hear. Did you absolutely not but. I mean we got to Tom Brady on it at all right he can't hit ticket happy rep on a quarterback got released silk. Didn't change the land speed changes wouldn't patent Olympic Games in sports stark. So I have a question for you it's very case specific we have really touched on the a's or the giants so far and we're an hour and ten minutes into the show. Pretty obvious why we haven't gone they're just ahead you're. It's not the greatest story line and we try to keep things positive on this and there's always a ton of positive things going on in Major League Baseball which is. What the show's about some people think it should be and a show or an a's and giants show it's not it's a baseball shall to big league show. But I am gonna ask you and a specific question that now lost seven of eleven. And if you would have asked me two weeks ago what I thought of the a's season in general. I would say it's been a success in my mind now that's not reflected in the standings the reason I say it's a success is because. They have committed publicly for the first time in my lifetime has certainly the first time since Billy being. Was there has been the head guy there they've publicly said were rebuilding now it's to some people you would several days been rebuilding every year for ten years. That's a flippant and too easy way to say it. They're publicly. Hopping to rebuilding and where that is the backdrop. I see young players being given a shot and being identified as part of the solution or not part of the solution so. There's a direction and wins losses don't matter so much to me. More what more matters to me is seeing OK this guy he's a keeper this guy's a keeper this guy might not be that guy is. How do you feel about it because now a seven out of eleven losses as they're piling up on thank him. OK maybe I'm not feeling as positive about days does that is that weird. You know what kind of contradict yourself there are told need to let that spiel is beans spell it. Right from I don't know. Tell what are right we understand that. At which level the view or form an opportunity to lower the level. We got along with that comes growing pains come these peaks and valleys that they don't end jacket. Sri would probably they don't. So it's like how Procter which you may be too young guys they're trying to get yet and yet they got what it would be to help rock of construction that's what at all. Regatta starting out that we are right about we got guys in the ball that we're trying to lightweight like trying to promote or. And reestablish himself as a back end of the ball pin option. The easiest quarter mile an hour in the game. Today is closer of the future Dallas. I I I don't see how is that he is intrinsic himself daily and for meat. What you can start to work. Barack work from global him. That's or shaping things up are concerned you're pretty good spot because now you got the stopper it's about our building which to get to a but he'll wait the public come double like being two of revamp he's he's come out and put in extra via remand to the blue collar span. And out here that it said. I'm tired by manager he had not been able where next year I'm tired of take my kids do it and then not been elected. Player because they're all. What music you know what they have it I'm tired of it too and things need to change and that. Important thing that span need to take all of this year got that victory tonight. Every fan had been looking for insult former Russian mr. cute so that brought this to shake it to commit publicly. Took the change that they had been clamoring for computers but the talent that's in the pipeline right now. The talent they. Forward to putting into this new ballpark and not what what about as well it's one thing all the biggest. Beautiful most sharp angle on the block it's another thing to not a single piece of merger reported. And that's exactly what you'll when he tried to do. The try to figure out where what is beautiful home and try to figure out the best way to put the best in merger in it so we come and sit out a cuter beat the band. Or site. The bush years out of Dallas Braden you can follow him on Twitter and please do to great follow Dallas Braden 209 of course is 209 is an homage to his hometown. The Stockton California Dallas summer put out word to the audience. I hit us on the Penske auto sales doc Comtex line 95795. Dallas is going to be Wear this for another ten minutes or so if you've got a question specifically for him. Shoot it to us we'll forwarded on to Dallas in May be no answer right here on air for you and Al Gore's got a question of his own now Dallas you know Oakland has love for you and I'm sure you have love for the town. In regard to that new home that a's fans are waiting for the announcement to come do you have a preference where you would like in new ballpark to be since you experienced army and Oakland. Our. The community could it pit problem a ball park village type atmosphere and I doubt serve. In her role as special about two organization. And I have the opportunity to allow a couple days ago and sort of attitude with the band really talked to Dan and invite you to peel the date. I doubt most important is. It didn't say it now there's a comprehensive. Or that was an at all. At Oakland ball or dot com. And it can take it out there by forty minute potentially finish as they well what I tell ban on matches. You're not just being asked via a newspaper or cool or you don't hate to think about which like. They want to work in court and I'll talk to everything from the material is she kidding. To the direction between could be due item they really want to. The communities. Fingerprints all over it and I I I don't know that. I mean for me the ball park village it await ago I talked about you what they've done with it market route to keep that they've done. At Wrigley Wrigley deal and an art he witnessed and experienced all those burst into. And just the patent and the like on on the sands. You walk those areas on its open with being it to citing its energetic and ONEOK would have to offer now. At the city I'd been a lot of people talk about. Quote the fans coming in and really getting a feel for why we are here and I got what the fans want they want. People coming here to know that little but he openly baseball community that surrounds them or them and it's like you depletion. Dallas and we've been told about multiple sites that the a's are considering. The one and it's is it Laney college that's one that yes okay so that's kind of the the leader in the clubhouse so to speak that's what I'm hearing anyway. Edgar a lot of people would like a ballpark at the waterfront almost like doing yard to AT&T and whatever you know name the a.'s new yard. Bruce Jenkins who's my sports driving idol I probably learned how to to write from reading him when I was a young man. Now he's kind of a colleague of mine but he wrote a column for the Simpson's co chronicle this morning. That as usual I'm I'm right there with him. And the headline is coliseum site right choice for a's park I think that site right now it's a bad rap because sitting on that site. Is the Oakland coliseum which we all agree is untenable. Going into the future but. In a couple of years we're gonna have the raiders gone we're gonna have the lawyers over and severance Cisco. In the days hash tag rooted in Oakland the only team left you've got this massive parcel of land why not raise everything just Terrell down. And then you can build that ballpark village that you mentioned you can get. The most intimate ballpark I think DA is really need to go small what is ballpark like to have a Max capacity of I don't know 30000. The most strike. So make you really intimate setting in and around that. You can have shot you can have restaurants you can have residences. Apartments. May I just think it's a perfect solution but people are letting. The current coliseum. In its reputation affect that site's reputation. I I totally understand and I agree. The first you know right is. Steer whatever brokered a little. He's not a bit that she's not a bit that the right and a lot. And you don't American people and shaped it into something. I totally agree more that negative connotation attached to a park to urge people to this morning with that site. Some of these you know double issues parking issues on. Now your site. It they are the only child. In the full there and the work. On it dug itself to becoming a sort that that really I think for the opportunity to do. I chuck. Or. Well with the commute itself. I'd been locally. I talk to a small business owners as well when I walk around the city and they were even party to the idea that it could be realistic opportunity and I. I try to wait out for them. A match on Saturday or Sunday we got a 1 o'clock after all gave it your shops open at 8 AM. Out that the special chalk board. You pedal now the work because folks walking from their hotel books or don't ballpark because. Then pay and the business. You don't have right now what you're about to hear talk. We won't have this opportunity because you're gonna be scrambling. Getting coffee eating response and getting donuts for everybody come to replace. Egypt's see you know. Start to see dollars. You know and you can even get excited about it and I mean I'd putt putt at a local copy sharper probably 2030 minutes. Answering questions that I really didn't answer or would try to just. Tried to really do these people these. Supporters rallied around the idea of being the heartbeat. Of this do. Village if you will and I think that's what we pay attention to is the surrounding community while the flight had to call you. Winds itself to a lot of extravagant things a lot of all options I think part of the city is is where can be your work should be to help the community. On levels well say Dallas. I've been beaten is drumming you played the game so I got asked you. Let's see league was inducted into Cooperstown and I just want askew was that a shock because the shock to me. Yes yep I think the shock but. Realistically. What an unexpected. Though. And I think if you know. I think if you look at but track record he's done little thing but their little Lotta things that people have questioned about there's been you know. An entire era that is. Being attempted to be eradicated from our history books he oversaw. And I don't understand how the man oh so called aero point himself on the streets and yet the men who helped. Basically put him on plateau. Will not be acknowledged or haven't been up to this. I love. I love that Dallas is exactly what I thought and I if you know before I put my thoughts out on the air I if I try to put myself in the shoes of somebody who thinks the exact opposite of me and how'd I have this conversation when that person and try to convince them. But is is that oversimplifying. To say all right he's beat you want the guy who oversaw that Eric and I can agree with you more look Cooperstown is a museum of baseball history. History is the key word here. It's everything in includes everything. You can't just pretend an air didn't happen. Now Cooperstown is not doing that before they work by not allowing Barry Bonds or Roger Clemens. Or any of the so called stars of the steroid era into the hall of fame well now you've let the the biggest star so to speak to guy who oversight and now you've got to let bonds and you've got that Clemens and because you've given your tacit approval to that era and now you've chosen not to ignore that certain part of baseball history in my oversimplifying things. Not at all this is exactly I mean it is where a lot of people. A lot of people fall and I mean. Got a whole payment you don't have it too eager all. So what is it your all it opened to door to petition. Order a whole Bieber is well you hear people talk about the character of some individuals that are in the air and if the popularity contest or humanitarian. Museum. How people would be Indy. Won't help him think it's not a doubt I'll talk about talking about a man diluted performer dock it over a decade. Or in a sport that we love so neat so appear. An apple or value just steelers' number perform. Not whether you could keep it light indicating one all after the game ball park that means we're out here and and it can it happen guy who oversaw this and what what he punishment and and in that nature and we're gonna hit it. Yeah he's at all community everybody Eagles don't. It Dallas we run out of time and you've given us a time that we're so appreciative of it it's the dog days of August we've got another couple weeks of August. At their risk of having you come in and stealing both of our jobs might you be open to doing some time in studio where this one of these weekend coming up if you're in town. An apartment round you'd never say never one thing I'd do it bigger. Daddy should we. All congratulations man that's awesome. Yet there thought got up on our baby girl on the way and done as much liked. Plan for future I believe it could be in her hand morbidity. So way you're gonna put your child headed inside debates. Are higher spec. A Dallas thank you so much for your time and you are the absolute best have a great rest your Sunday. Are. Taking these. And that cat is Israel that come about Israel he does not there's no filter for him and the great thing is most guys when they don't have a filter. That's gonna end up hurting them. Dallas speaks his mind went on partly like when's the last time Dallas was embroiled in controversy they're the one time and it was a rod thing. In A-Rod was at fault for like he did break one of baseball's unwritten rules in Dallas called amount for because. Rod was the big dog in Dallas was not at that station. A lot of people sided with A-Rod if you're paying attention. What Dallas his point was if you knew baseball and he knew Alex had broken one of the rules. But I mean. I wanna get him in studio like if we can get a whole show at Dallas we might not get a word in edgewise and we both refinement and went. I'm just I'm still stuck on this blood give me and announce its ideas I've never seen a man so bad it is jobs. In the public perception was the same. Everybody was on the same page. And he gets rewarded with their showman and he vulgar rude to say he wasn't bad at his job set ever was one of our guests earlier we and he says he was great at his job now granted Seth Everett. As a relationship on its league baseball but. We can get into that further now are you aware. When you go to a ball park in Houston and in a concession line. Somebody has been behind that counter on the other. Checking to see if what you're eating as healthy and up to code or just flat out dangerous. Do you know where the Oakland coliseum and AT&T. Park ranked. If you were ranking the safety of the food that you will very soon I'm Michael Irvin he's Joseph Johnson Irving guru inside to big gun five point seven again. I should young nick out of bush. Welcome back inside to big time Michael Irvin staring across the studio it Darryl Johnson together we are herbs and guru. We may as well just tip the audience off now this show is all about baseball and said bigs every Sunday from nine to noon more often than not if the jays are playing in another time zone. Inside the bigs as next week we have a four hour inside the bigs like. Next Sunday evening like now this as a bit late night but the reason I bring it up is because look doer and I love working with each other it's no secret that there is an open time slot here. At 95 cent in the game and we're shameless about it out throw our hat into the ring. Why look at the schedule guru and I sent out a tweet on Friday. And it's for anything days and they got us working together six times that my friend is hash tag good for ball can you handle me. There's no arms and when I think of proving that I can communion mean. You can't handle the truth scientist at the Nuba. AAA 9579257. Is the number you wanna call if you wanna join the conversation. Somebody has done that just now and thank you. Penske auto sales are complex on 95795. Let's go right out to the phones. We got to eleven steel reserve what's happening to eleven. Not technical difficulties. Live radio dot eleventh Joseph Castellano thanks for listening longtime Bay Area member of the media. He's done live radio tuned his advice to me when stuff like this happens. Is to just laugh. And so we did that we have to eleven steel reserve now. Look to eleven how are you welcomed into debates. There are common in. Order Gartner. On it and not. Most of them. Aren't on bonds are important that's been in the ball. And what they're doing this whole human. Rated new equipment. Mean you'll make a point. Didn't coordinate. And I'm in California art form right well where were Obama may have been the momenta. How well does that answer though his answer was it didn't mean anything. I'd like that bode well Rick. And I want. There. All of that. Anomaly and an article a while well and I hope you will be here. Apartment. You'd expect a close look at that. Now you make great points and LT. As you've heard Leno was preaching unity there were all the same race buddy stole the show and that many rocket. The mood at that caught. Our added. Together community first. And vote and mark yet on where you want. You guys even extra hours I don't know because I appreciate that phone call to eleven still reserved. Let's go out to Troy in Oakland what's a Troy your own into the bigs with the urging guru. What that Eminem and look group I got to try to a couple of quick takes India suggestion for you doubt the product and it. Beat it who. I'm not you know like nick and but it can be written article are you. There old Honda. Well my Gunner Elena are being groomed so the other cheek I give below. Under the under the outcome indignant. But anyway on board acted my two takes come out and advocate and advocate for that awful long prime minister and things I haven't noticed and anybody suggest about which it. Maybe that outlook on injuries sustained over the years. Which are jammed fingers and can't root and broke an ankle maybe issues station shrink the right. Of the base bag just down a little bit so that the players we now I'll keep hand won't won't be so and when he did it five. Or stretch or make India and also for the future I wanna know you got that about the MLB constructed. George shortstop their first that it looks like this. Source it's got you got two point tourism let's address the first one and then. It's Conyers said to tailor a military finished. But let's talk about based first what do you think of I agree with you. I didn't do change in the composition of the based. Could probably help now rather. The height rather than lower the height how about you changed material member back we are kids. It PE in grade school. You have that cloth bag all right it was tied down there is a little more give to it it was lower than the typical base you see in the big leagues now days. Maybe that will help out that old B hard if it's that cloth material that we played with kids. Then you're gonna run into a soggy base if you insist on playing through light sprinkles but I I think. You're absolutely thinking in the right direction and as Dallas Braden said because it was Bryce Harper and not just some guy who just got called up from AAA. They're already thinking about it on park avenue Palo how can we make sure. The biggest stars in our game don't get taken out by something as simple as the base. So now try to give me your pitcher suggestion. Okay I'm look at that it did a door in Kapalua to get it to. I think about not only despite laws are important are a lot of our players that can be a comment on that could be reached. Our ticket can have a good contribution to the sport and we shouldn't think about that help out folks back to the pitcher. Was MLB sent that are able on to it's it's become such. Big enough and human construct. A pitch in that department prevents the blisters not of these pages and in place to kind of keep a market. And I do agree which you've got. On that now Tom did you look at hard to count on it won't kill him Olympic arms stronger but the ML BMR database and they should be looked at Mara. Take a look at that trashed our problem and actually the mop in a lot of buildup some of that it's a mental. Note about that. All right thank you Troy appreciated Dario any thoughts on the glove suggesting. I'm not doing the gloves now and baseball's been around forever. And how many incidents have we had just in regard to Bryce Harper or bag being a problem where they would look at it like of all our years in baseball. When was it Bryce Harper dairy bonds are Tony Gwynn hammer her with debased so I don't think we're gonna see anything but I think from the public. Persona. Dell's say still looking into the net it's come it took us a staple like a mushroom bag. With the email be logo on on a field DE direct area but the glove side guy just I don't I don't I don't dig down would. I love Detroit's Troy sounds like a younger man and you and I are sung to him are being missed warnings of course I have no idea he could be 65 and I'm completely wrong but. I'm telling you this is a cause and I've been on for a long time mentioned Alan Jaeger. The guy who basically has been trying to get baseball. Not find religion but rediscover religion when it applies to pitchers and let's stop baiting the armed let them go. Another benefit that you would have a letting guys go deep is here's what makes it really easy for a manager to pull a guy as he gets close to the under dark. As soon as there's traffic on the basis. Because we have specialists in the bullpen we're paying big dollars to work specifically in this situation. I'm gonna kill two birds with one stone on and get my starter who I'm dating his arm out and no one's gonna question me because it's a situation or paying pitcher beat. Get us out of that's why I'm going to I'm not paving the arm I'm going to a guy that we pay a lot of good money though it's not a bad spots finance. Sometimes it is but I'm saying they can cover themselves by saying our. But here's why. I think they should be allowed to go look wouldn't you like you're starting pitcher. OK if your first off if you're starting pitcher you're better than every guy in your ballpark right got a I mean check. Bottom line if you are a reliever. The first time the first time I got moved into the bullpen was USF so the highest level of baseball I've ever played right division one. They moved me to the ball toss my freshman year. And the first thing that came across my mind is like. I'm no longer one of the best pitchers on my team if I'm in the bullpen and not the rotation. However deep my rotation is in college it's usually three yet to get over that though I had to get over quick. And and I did I was thankful just for the opportunity to pitch division want but it was a bloated by ego because I thought okay. I'm not the closer which means I'm not the best reliever and I'm not a starter which means I'm not on the best three pitchers on the team so at best. I'm the fifth best pitcher on this team it's a blow to the ego. Yours it's a long winded way of getting to the point of wouldn't you like your starter know how to get himself out of jams Lleyton again and I opened them up mentally. Yeah but I guess with the media. The social media sports and I mean. People there are so many people lined up to second gear issue now did dad is almost. EEE you know baseball has become a game of its not my fault sport task it's not my fault I did the high percentage staying and the high percentage thing is to bring in a guy who is not as good as the guy that's on the bump but the go to is. He's fresh moves so he'll he'll get out of the mess as opposed to let these guys do what they did in the past. Work he gets stronger the same time get out of the jam. Who were not violated one of the cardinals and what number where you US several quake. When numbered and are aware via if 33 was available I had that one year. My first year when I got their 33 is taking so or 35 which is one or two income the unions at the convention. It's not exactly while Laura. And fight a blue words 351 point. The first number would be the first number that I ever war is a baseball player that I myself was fourteen provided. Now my mystery early. Johnny ray the pirate petition basement pirates he had Afro. I got a doozy for you with the pirates why was the pirates against Marty parts and really start July had a paper route I got a little friction and thousands of my room. With the transistor radios a birthday gift and it was in 1979 World Series so. There real quick notes posts ahead for the break here pretty soon. You're getting on me yesterday. For saying them fan of both teams are in the Bay Area. You greater share and our uniter ship on the token. I just wanted to make sure you and your cowboys fan and that's why jump all over it like I do a good job analyzing these teams because I'm objective look at. You know you're not necessarily supposed to be objective on sports talk radio exposed hot. Like this that needs objective I'm not you know I don't. I don't have any friends I just called legacy and I got to. His new route I am herbs we promised we broke one of our rules you're always supposed to pay off the tees. The last tees I tease you it was a good idea ballpark food and maybe I'm subconsciously. Trying to stay away from it because it's nasty. Trust me it's nasty sick with a summer she's too route inside of eggs and five points in the. I 95 and say. All things technical difficulties it's easy to pin them all on young man. But it's not his fault and he's doing good he's making good this is meta tags are bringing us back. Who still beats like it is only this time around and I just want one popular the last time acts need to hop on the air on. You kind of expected here and hop on the air. To that Dickey got a voice for radio my friend. Kim currency technical did not go I says the as a face for TV while an act. Old are young nick tore me to Emmitt Smith member Tony too young man downstairs the the dormant and he's twenty years. A common friend passed him call my opponent what's his name. Mac. Not valued added. I got a guy that good of a they are right ticket Tony I think really on. So ballpark food right Ugoh. You're gonna basically entering into a contract of trust. When you step up to the concession stand right or go to a restaurant especially if it's one of the nicest yards in the big leagues like. AT&T park on the street and instant star rookie. When I heard that the ball park it's food safety had been ranked. Top to bottom and ice is legit naturally I assumed. Because. The reputation that AT&T park does is one of the jewels of Major League Baseball Mitt Saturday here ranked right near the top right true it's right it's in the middle. So I was wrong in that respect when I thought of Oakland I thought OK it's really old yard. It's got a terrible reputation. I'm guessing that patch at the bottom of the rankings. At this that was second to last so that means it means well it's similar to you know used to run nursing homes for earlier right. Now I'm trying to get back in media full time he'll treat you. You know stationed on herbs during enter. You should there can do it twice twice thank you pigs you'll isn't. So. The coliseum what it means is once a year to Health Department comes in and they do this in nursing homes that do this and a lot of businesses. And they come in and inspect everything in they have their book of codes in the inspectors look at every little thing. Are you up to code here are you cooking things at the right temperature you washing things at the rate temperature I mean it's it's. Is it remarkable how detailed they get right. It didn't surprise me here that the policy it disappoints me but it doesn't surprise me because my guess would be if they had more updated facilities. Then they would score better on these inspections. Throw you couldn't not to me a check I don't care where you Linux what still you're using. What what odd couple silver dish where what do what have you if you have a clean and you care about it you are clearly don't get it done I don't care what middle class look you know how to get clean in this is disturbing. Did you say because of that age of the coliseum that had something to time these was not a. I'm saying I assumed that was one of the reasons I was trying to give the benefit that like if you had a spanking new yard. I would like to think that because of that your better equipped. To be locked in in terms of health go to your right here. Yeah it comes down it's totaled pride and pride right. Professional pride I'm not saying the a's don't have it when it come to their food but. It does kind of make you wonder why I'm glad to hear that they're doing it sends a lot just wonder what winning in two. The ranking well here's. ABC and take you to Tommy call by the way has been our producer. You did hole I mean I let them down ten or sheets at the Gaza by crazies so the questions houses data compiled. Health inspection records Republican most health departments have online databases some mean this child. Municipalities however. Either leave out key details in the report failed to provide a public database altogether. Additional documents had to be requested from 13 of the local government in which the league operates. Next question is this an assessment of the stadium food safety right now. This is important. Not necessarily these numbers are look at a stadium food safety conditions during a single inspection most recent one. On any given day violation numbers could be higher or lower individual concession stands since she stadium has dozens of food entities. These numbers offer an assessment of a ballpark. Overall my first question is Tommy did you write this yourself. Ours is copy and paste because young Tommy call is an up and coming writer. Love him to death for that and I'm calling the writers write. Tommy did you write this yourself. During prison work if you did Arlen that they can't hear these guys back there. Are mastering now. And you're talking are not in my camera that people can't the people OK okay so. It's this too much information your route do you want to notice. If it's public record but did you bomb in the top tier and I do look at a bomb in the bottom half where. The green in golf finished hill though and this is scary wanna know all of the stuff that's going around in regard to people getting sick. And things we take for granted I I I just don't think that this was done as thoroughly. Is I hope we're making it out to be because it's scary is hailed the unfortunate thing as bills owed your dishwasher without you know this this spells out it was you get inspected once a year so. And there if they're anything like in the nursing home industry today are. Pop inspections you don't know they're coming off the profit at any time right and that's the way it should be done right you know and some getting prepared for an. Inspection obviously that have everything buttoned up you would like to think anyway so what this says is. On either one day or a week which is in nursing home to the inspection last about a week. It's so what you're saying is this on. Out of 365. Days if this is a wonder to recruit inspection if I were talking about a very fine night. Amount of time. To your being judged so maybe had a bad day. And as a result you were down in the bottom when on average over the other 360. Days of the year. You're pretty buttoned down. Your very health conscious and if the inspection and come alive or is earlier in depth right at the inspection come forties earlier you'd be at the top of the rankings so. It is a very small sample size with using a phrase that DA's gonna brought into the baseball lexicon. I don't know it's not gonna stop me from buying food at the coliseum and I'm there's gonna stop you. On in the press box and it's right in the hot dogs and calls him what's your what's your Mac's coming hot dogs and you no I don't I don't do for now though. You know there on I'll be talked. I don't care edges them do research and trying to eat better and they loaded on the thing but it. Once they're done them on Google gave me around that repeats and bring in we had a cat in the press box who worked for small paper in Sacramento are forget the guy's name and I probably wouldn't. Say it on air. But we noticed about halfway through the season that this cat had a fresh dog in front of him like all the time and so we started counting hot dogs. You didn't name and bust the hot dogs on the hot dog count how much a man had eight had duty anywhere in one game. And veteran team put the dogs out and telling us the other big turnout. Yeah well I wasn't trim Boca so when that we know why Friday 888. Dogs in like a four innings brand was the guy this hot dogs Abbas what's the name Kobayashi. Why now Kobayashi I don't have Maya could lose a guy Joey chestnut Joey send us an October I'll she opted thrown right business. We even doll looks. Why don't you can't counted every dog herbs you're that guy yeah it was just me it was all the be riders because look at. CA and yelled lane it's not it's out of stadium food. It's being a B writer is a very provincial thing right if you were a beat writer in Susan's lesser. Bless her heart is at that I mean she police is this right. If you were a beat writer. You rank ahead of every other member of the media who is at that game that day. At least in your mind because I'm here every damn day OK I'm putting up with good moods and bad about good stories in bad story so I'm with Susan in that respect. But the reason she's one of the best is too she polices that like crazy but everything. Anyway anything that's out of the ordinary from what to beat people. Have experienced they will notice in the oval track. When you see a cat with eight dogs in front of him before earnings Spaniard gonna notice I. He was doing when he and his acute say you know what else I've noticed that we have not even gotten through before ball bad for ball we have not even started coaching groups. We only have an hour after the show so let's call good football bat for ball killers troops and anything else you would like is to discuss my name is Michael Irvin. I emerged he is Darryl Johnson he's there this is into the bigs. It's a mess today but damn it's fun many types and again.
