EPISODE 78: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) SPECIAL COMMENT: 12 Republicans join the Democrats to give the codification of Marriage Equality a filibuster-proof majority. The Respect for Marriage Act will be law by Christmas (2:37) It seems so obvious; it is in fact breathtaking. 14 years ago a Democratic candidate could be elected POTUS without endorsing same-sex marriage. 26 years ago a Democratic president could sign legislation defining marriage as only between a man and a woman (4:02) And 14 years and exactly one week ago, I could startle viewers, my bosses, and some liberals by decrying the passage of Prop 8 in California - which TOOK AWAY Marriage Equality awarded by the courts - in a Special Comment called "A Question of Love" (12:15) This is how far we have come: Two months later I was approached by Sir Ian McKellan who said that the fact that I was able to incorporate those opinions into an American cable newscast meant "some of my hope for the future is restored." Today, with the path to codified Marriage Equality assured, some of MY hope for the future is restored. B-Block (17:48) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: Penny, in Missouri (18:50) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: Mike Pence defies Congress (and logic), now it's Stu Varney trashing Trump (to Trump's daughter-in-law), and a Democrat beats a Faux Democrat in LA (20:22) IN SPORTS: Two unanimous Cy Young Winners for the first time since Bob Gibson's 1.12 ERA and Denny McLain's 31 wins, Virginia cancels its football game, Kyrie coming back - but why? (23:11) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Laura Ingraham continuing to try to make the fabricated Pelosi Conspiracy Theory happen and Chris Licht drowning at CNN, compete with the executives of MSNBC, NBC News, and NBC. After getting fricasseed for firing Tiffany Cross to appease fascists like Tucker Carlson, they knew what to do: Trash her anonymously in The New York Post. C-Block (32:21) THINGS I PROMISED NOT TO TELL: 30 years ago today, the Colorado Rockies and then-Florida Marlins were born in the baseball expansion draft which I anchored on ESPN. The draft followed one of the weirdest you're-gonna-die-on-THAT-hill things I ever witnessed in sports broadcasting. But most importantly: I can now confess that to get the scoop as to who would be the first pick, I did a terrible, terrible thing ;-)See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Great Coaches: Leadership & Life

Our Great Coach on this episode is Baseball Coach Jon Deeble. Jon represented Australia as a Baseball pitcher at the 1988 Olympics. He transitioned into coaching in 1994 in America as a minor league manager and hitting coach with the Florida Marlins and Boston Red Sox. In 2000 he became the Head Coach of the Australian team eventually leading them to the silver medal at the 2004 Olympics. Then in 2011 he led the team to 5th place at the World Baseball classic, the country's highest ever placing. He became the first Australian to coach in the Majors when he became Boston's first-base coach in 2005. And from 2002 to 2016 he was the Head Scout for the Boston Red Sox in the Pacific Rim. In 2016 he joined the Los Angeles Dodgers' in the same role. Jon was born with a mitt in his hand, thanks to both parents representing Australia at baseball. The sport has taken him all over the world, and allowed him to cross paths with some of the biggest names in baseball. He is passionate about developing young talent; and global enough in his perspective, to know that you have to treat people as individuals if you want to help them succeed. He is honest about his shortcomings as a coach and at the same time proud of his teams achievements, and the role that culture and leadership played in delivering them. The other key parts of the interview were: His use of player psychological profiling to allow him to find the best way to communicate with individuals. How he encourages his teams to focus on the execution of their particular role in service of the greater goal of perfect execution for the team. Hs views on self-doubt, and how has a coach he knows there can be a problem when he expects more from someone than they expect from themselves. And how the great coaches are honest, are excellent communicators and not afraid to make hard decisions. This was a wonderful conversation, and I hope you enjoy it as much as Jim and I did.

Wow.What an incredible story.I am so honoured to have had Beau on the show to tell his story of a heart-wrenching childhood into a heavily addicted adulthood into a 5+ year story of sobriety and redemption. This episode is absolutely riveting. It is a must-listen. Beau's bio:"Beau Payne started out as a promising MLB prospect drafted by the Florida Marlins but his life and career were derailed due to childhood trauma, abuse, drugs and alcohol. Beau battled a longtime addiction to benzodiazepines, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, alcohol and more. His addictions led him to homelessness on the streets, detox clinics, rehabs and many years in jails and prisons. Since his last use, Beau finally surrendered to his disease and was able to get the help he needed to start his journey of redemption. He has been clean and sober since 2016 and his number one passion in life is to stay clean and sober and pass on his story to others in hopes that they don't have to travel the path he travelled and become the recovery miracle that is out there waiting for them."Find Beau

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The 2006 Mets came within a two runs of winning the National League pennant and making it to the World Series for the first time since 2000. The 2007 Mets came within a game of making the postseason. In 2008, history repeated itself, as the team was eliminated from postseason play on their last day of the regular season by the Florida Marlins for the second straight year. With Jose Reyes and David Wright emerging as budding stars, a third homegrown phenom would have made all the difference, and that was exactly what Brian Cole was expected to be.

"So about 10 years behind bars over my life. Due to that poison, poor decision making, things like that. Chris, I was a major league baseball draft pick as a kid. I was drafted by the Florida. Marlins offered a contract by the Milwaukee brewers. I was a big national prospect back in the day and drugs, alcohol surgeries, and a lot of mental health kind of shot that down the drain." Must listen! Beau Payne started life as a promising professional baseball player drafted by the Florida Marlins. Numbing years of trauma, his life got derailed by alcohol, drugs, and prison stints.

We talk about the Austin Meadows deal. I get into why the Rays did this, and why they are likely better for making this trade. I talk about why Meadows would have been an upgrade for the Guardians but not as much as most people think. We talk about why he would not have been an ideal outfielder and why I think Steven Kwan could outperform him.  We discussed the other trade that occurred that was one that I think might have been more helpful for the Cleveland Guardians. Ohio kid Tanner Scott and former Guardians farmhand were traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the Florida Marlins. I talk about why this trade will likely have a greater return than the Meadows deal. We talk a bit about the college pitching class, and who is shining in a class that might not see a player taken in the first 20 picks. After that, we focus on Ivan Melendez “The Hispanic Titanic” as he is known. The University of Texas first baseman has some obvious knocks, but when you look at the data he is one of the safest hitters in this class and putting up numbers that video games would be jealous of.  Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Geoff and Brooke both attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where Geoff was a scholarship pitcher.

Geoff spent six seasons playing baseball in the minor leagues, advancing as high as AAA before a shoulder injury forced his retirement in the early 2000s.After retiring from baseball, Geoff and his wife Brooke started a small marketing firm in their living room. The company experienced tremendous success which allowed Geoff and Brooke to sell the business and move on to multiple other entrepreneurial ventures. Geoff most recently served as the CEO of a health technology startup.Geoff's faith inspired him to a life of leadership and prompted his upstart run for political office. He was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2012. During his time in office he authored several important pieces of legislation. These include HB 749-The Cargo Theft Act, HB152-Michael's Law and most recently SB258- the Rural Hospital Tax Credit.Geoff and Brooke are married and have three sons: Parker (17), Bayler (13), and Ryder (9).
