As such, it's no surprise that the team has a long list of players whose numbers have been retired in their honor.The Yankees currently have 20 retired numbers. The most famous retired numbers belong to some of the greatest players in team history, including Babe Ruth (3), Lou Gehrig (4), Joe DiMaggio (5), and Mickey Mantle (7). More recent players to have their numbers retired by the Yankees include Derek Jeter (2) and Mariano Rivera (42).But what about players who may have had successful careers with the Yankees, but not what many would call "All-Time Greats"? Some candidates in this realm include Jorge Posada (20), Paul O'Neill (21), Andy Pettitte (46), and Bernie Williams (51), all of whom played critical roles in the team's World Series championships from 1996-2009.Yankee TriviaWho is the Yankee hitter with the 5th most strikeouts in franchise history?AJ is on special assignment and I will be joined by my Dad, the Podcast Padre, during these dark Winter months.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/chasefor28.

Welcome to January 7th, 2023 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate delicious imports and wobbly heads.  In the mid 16th century Nagasaki, Japan was a closed-port to most of the world, but the Portuguese were allowed to bring in Catholicism and with it, a food that they made during lent. The name tempura actually comes from the Latin quattuor anni tempora or Days of Ember when no red meat was eaten. The origins of these fritters likely came from Indian pakora, but the Japanese love for fresh foods put a lighter spin on the dish. As strange as it sounds, Japan had no tradition of frying food before this time. Today, tempura is a fundamental culinary technique that we celebrate on National Tempura Day.  Bobbleheads have been around since the 18th Century. They were brought to Europe from China, where they were known as temple nodders or nodding head figures. But the bobbleheads we treasure today, first became popular in the 1960s. That's when sports teams began depicting their mascots and famous players like Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame Museum houses the world's largest collection and if you happen to be in Milwaukee you can drop in to see the exhibits. You could even celebrate with a custom made figure of yourself as long as you don't let it go to your head on National Bobblehead Day.  I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day!  Learn more about your ad choices.

EPISODE 86: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:44) SPECIAL COMMENT: Three weeks ago - so quietly it has barely been noticed - the government declassified the 31-page "memorandum for the record" of the 9/11 Commission's 2004 interview with President George W. Bush (2:20) In it, Bush's words are beyond damning - they are confessional. They confirm his dereliction of duty, his culpability, his malfeasance, in the months before 9/11. Bush lied (5:38) about the August 6 President's Daily Briefing (6:58) Bush lied about the only threats being "overseas" (7:53) Bush lied about Al-Qaeda cells in the U.S. (8:23) Bush lied about aircraft as missiles (8:57) Bush lied about being warned about domestic threats (9:30) Bush lied about George Tenet never warning him (10:00) Bush lied about never being told how Al-Qaeda would attack (14:28) Sadly the 9/11 Commissioners never asked Bush about the allegation that he rushed through the August 6 2001 PDB because he wanted to go fishing and told the briefer "All right, you've covered your ass now." That's unfortunate because ALL Bush did in his interview with the Commissioners was try to cover HIS ass. For more than 20 years he's succeeded, but after the declassification of this memorandum, history will conclude two things: Osama Bin Laden attacked America - no one else. And George W. Bush made sure that America was unprepared - no one else. B-Block (19:29) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: Lucky in California (20:21) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: McCarthy promises a committee to investigate the 1/6 Committee - IF he can get elected; and after promising no layoffs, CNN's Chris Licht lays off hundreds (22:26) IN SPORTS: How IS Pele?

EPISODE 80: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:43) 1st SPECIAL COMMENT Is America free? Or are we slaves to the mob rule of Republican gun owners? These Americans - just out for a Saturday night in a place in Colorado Springs that they considered their "haven," just like the children were in Uvalde and just like the shoppers in Buffalo, were killed - directly or stochastically - by Republicans.(5:40) We always ignore the darkest, truest part of the equation of gun violence: there are people in this country who WANT this to keep happening. It is why more children die by gunfire every year than do on-duty cops or active military. And the Republican Party has prostituted itself to these people. (9:10) The 2nd Amendment is a lie; there are 103 words related to money or ownership in the Constitution as amended and none of them are in 2A; (13:41) Right now the President could make enormous inroads into the availability of the guns with which Republicans hunt minorities and children, just by Executive Orders. He must make them, and more over he must lead us in the truth: once again, in Colorado Springs, REPUBLICANS MURDERED AMERICANS. B-Block (18:51) 2nd SPECIAL COMMENT: If you were Attorney General and you were trying to run out the clock on prosecuting an ex-president and make sure it was the clock that got the blame - and not you - you'd do exactly what Merrick Garland did in appointing a Special Counsel nearly two years after the crime (22:08) There are seven major rationalizations for Garland's act. I'll let them by refuted by Neal Katyal, William Barr, Jill Wine-Banks, Bradley Moss, Matthew Miller, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Samuel Alito - and Robert Mueller.

EPISODE 70: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) SPECIAL COMMENT: It goes without saying Trump should not merely already be under indictment - he should be under 24/7 guard in a SuperMax Prison. But he's not. So we have to view last night's leak about the Department of Justice considering a Special Trump Counsel as "good news." (2:45) CNN's report says the Special Counsel would be appointed as soon as Trump officially declares he's running (he came close last night at one of his Cult Rallies) (3:53) CNN also reported something strange: that DOJ has hired two high-priced prosecutors in advance, just in case they do decide to prosecute. Are you kidding? Who does this? You don't hire guys away from Law Firm Partnerships 'just in case' (5:55) Plus CNN discovered one of the hirings because the guy UPDATED HIS LINKED-IN PROFILE! (8:23) In actual stuff that's happened, CREW, which got a New Mexico County Commissioner removed from office for insurrection based on the 14th Amendment, says it will sue to get Trump similarly barred from serving (11:00) All of which leads me to invoke 19th Century British Prime Minister William E.

This Day in Baseball - The Daily Rewind

Frank Robinson was the first black manager when the Cleveland Indians hired him, but there was another black player who managed before Robbie . . . .     On November 4, 1948  Jake Powell, 39, former big league baseball star, shot himself to death in Washington police headquarters late today while being questioned on bad check charges. Powell had been picked up at the Union Station the complaint of a local hotel where he had been staying the past three days. After Powell was taken to the check and fraud division of local police headquarters and during the questioning police said he asked permission to leave the room for several minutes. Police said he stepped outside the door pulled out a 25-caliber revolver and shot himself once in the chest and once in the right temple.  With him when he was taken into custody was a woman who identified herself as Josephine Amder, of Deland, Fla. she told police she and Powell had planned to be married during the day, but later changed their plans. But Mrs. Elizabeth Powell, to whom the ballplayer had been married several years, said she was still his wife and as far as she was concerned there had been no separation. On November 4, 1889 — After a formal meeting of representatives from all National League chapters, the Brotherhood issues a “Manifesto” in which it claims that “players have been bought, sold and exchanged as though they were sheep instead of American citizens.” This bold statement constitutes a declaration of war between the Brotherhood and major league officials which will soon explode into the formation of the Players League.   86 years later . . . .   On November 4, 1976 — The first mass-market free agent re-entry draft is held at the New York Plaza Hotel. Among those available are Reggie Jackson, Willie McCovey, Joe Rudi, Don Gullett, Gene Tenace, Nate Colbert, Rollie Fingers, Don Baylor, and Bobby Grich. McCovey and Colbert are the only two players not selected, but McCovey will catch on with the Giants in spring training and have a banner year at his old first base position. Jackson will go onto star for the New York Yankees and win two World Championships. Fingers will have several excellent seasons for the Padres and Brewers including winning an MVP and Cy Young award. Baylor will go to win an MVP award.     On November 4, 1959 — – Ernie Banks wins his second National League MVP Award in a row on the strength of his 45 home runs and 143 RBI for the Chicago Cubs. Eddie Mathews finishes second.   What really made 1959 special for Ernie was his defense, his 3.5 Dwar is the highest of his career, he will be rewarded with a gold glove in 1960, but he was much better in 1959.       Fun fact from 1955 to 1960 his 248 home runs were more than anyone else in the majors, including Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron. His 5 Grand slams in a single season is still tied for the single season record in the NL. And was the MLB record until 1987.   On November 4, 2001, the Arizona Diamondbacks win their first World Series championship. Down a run to the Yankees in the ninth, the D-Backs rally against New York closer Mariano Rivera, winning on a single by Luis Gonzalez, 3-2. Tony Wolmack had tied the game 2 batters earlier, doubling down the right-field line. It was the first time since 1985, two twenty-game winners start Game 7 of the World Series when Yankee right-hander Roger Clemens (20-3) faces Curt Schilling (22-6) of the Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark in Arizona. Sixteen years ago, Bret Saberhagen (20-6) of the Royals squared off against Cardinal hurler John Tudor (21-8) in the Fall Classic finale at Kauffman Stadium.   The four-year-old Diamondbacks, the youngest franchise to win a Fall Classic, end New York's string of three consecutive World Championships. Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling share the Series MVP honors. The Arizona pitchers are the first multiple winners since the Los Angeles Dodgers trio of Ron Cey, Pedro Guerrero and Steve Yeager shared the award in the 1981 World Series. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network will vote this game the 9th greatest game of the past fifty years. It was the first time since 1985, two twenty-game winners start Game 7 of the World Series when Yankee right-hander Roger Clemens (20-3) faces Curt Schilling (22-6) of the Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark in Arizona. Sixteen years ago, Bret Saberhagen (20-6) of the Royals squared off against Cardinal hurler John Tudor (21-8) in the Fall Classic finale at Kauffman Stadium.     Birthday boy Dick Groat Born: November 4, 1930, Wilkinsburg, PA The acknowledged leader of the Pirates, Groat was a good-hitting shortstop with great range. He helped Pittsburgh to the World Series title in 1960, and after being dealt to St. Louis, played for their World Championship team in 1964. At Duke Univeristy, Groat was an All-American baskertball player who spurned offers to make professional basketball his career. In 1960 he was named National League Most Valuable Player, when he won the batting title.   Best Season, 1960 groat staved off challengers to win the batting title with a .325 mark. He excelled at Forbes Field: batting .363 at home and .290 in road games. A singles hitters, Groat had just 32 extra-base hits, one of the lowest marks by an MVP winner, but he was sure-handed in the field, as usual. As he did much of his career, Groat hit well against southpaws: .376 in 178 at-bats. After he slumped in July, Groat responded by hitting .373 in August and .344 in September/October. On September 6, a Lew Burdette pitch broke Groat's wrist, sidelining the shortstop for nearly four weeks. He returned the last weekend of the year and played in the World Series.

Hour 1: The Yankees dropped game 1 in Houston and struck out 17 times. Matt Carpenter and Josh Donaldson should not be in the lineup right now. And two innings of Clarke Schmidt in relief didn't make sense. Jerry starts with play by play sound from last night's Yankees loss to the Astros. We heard from Aaron Boone, Aaron Judge and Justin Verlander. The Phillies/Padres game featured Nola vs Nola as brothers faced off. It reminds Gio of A League of Their Own. The Knicks lost their season opener to the Grizzlies. Boomer wonders why we don't seem to have quality control at WFAN. That is supposed to be Dov's job. TNF tonight is Cardinals/Saints and Deandre Hopkins returns from suspension. Mike Tomlin will not confirm or deny a locker room scuffle between Mitch Trubisky and Dionte Johnson. Tua blacked out from his concussion during the game. Russell Wilson says he heals quickly because of wolverine blood. In the final segment of the hour, we take calls from Yankees fans. We wonder why Clarke Schmidt was sent out there for a second inning of relief.  Hour 2: Boomer says if the Yankees win it will be in 7 games, if the Astros win it will be in 6 or less. We take calls from angry Yankees fans talking about their anemic playoff offense. The callers don't seem to like Josh Donaldson. A caller says this is ‘one big combination of anger and hatred'. Jerry returns for an update with audio from last night's Yankees loss to the Astros. Suzyn Waldman has a funny response to Pena's HR. The Yankees struck out 17 times last night. Harrison Bader hit another playoff HR in the loss. The Padres scored six unanswered runs over the Phillies. The Knicks and Nets both lost their season openers last night. The Arizona Cardinals get Deandre Hopkins back for tonight's game against the Saints. Mike Tomlin wants winners. Tua talks about his concussion against the Bengals. In the final segment of the hour, should the Yankees be pitching Gerrit Cole tonight since it's a game they clearly need? We talked about how we would fill out the Yankees lineup for tonight. Boomer wonders if we will see Clarke Schmidt again in this series.  Hour 3: The Yankees couldn't even get a fly ball to score a run last night. 17 strikeouts by the Yankees was maddening. We took calls from frustrated Yankees fans who are not happy with Boone for playing Carpenter and Donaldson. Jerry returns for an update and Boomer says Jerry's upset because nobody is editing audio for him. Boomer says there is no quality control here. We have audio from John & Suzyn from last night's Yankees loss to the Astros. Matt Carpenter struck out 4 times and tells us what Verlander did well. The Knicks lost their season opener to the Grizzlies. The Nets lost as well. Jerry has audio of Steph Curry screaming at home as he watches his buddy Damion Lee of the Suns. In the final segment of the hour, Boomer says there's no Yankee juice right now.  Hour 4: With the Yankees striking out 17 times last night, Boomer wonders what the record is in a playoff game.

Hour 1: The NL East title is still alive for the Mets as the Braves lost to the Marlins last night. The Mets were rained out and will have a doubleheader today, although today's weather looks terrible as well. Boomer broke down Zach Wilson's plays yesterday when he went on Monday Morning Quarterback on the CBS Sports Network. He came away impressed. We also talked about Daniel Jones' high ankle sprain. Jerry is here for his first update but first we talked about Aaron Judge being stuck at 61 and everybody keeps breaking in to cover his at bats. Luis Severino had a no hitter through seven innings but was pulled because he is returning from an injury. Boomer thinks the Yankees did the right thing in pulling Severino as he is good to go for the playoffs. The Mets are still alive as the Braves lost to the Marlins. The 49'ers beat the Rams last night 24-9 and Matthew Stafford was sacked seven times. Someone ran on the field with a pink smoke bomb. Brian Daboll was asked about Daniel Jones' injury. Tyreek Hill chose the Dolphins over the Jets because of state taxes. In the final segment of the hour, there was no Aaron Judge HR and there was no no-hitter because the Yankees pulled Luis Severino after seven innings. Gio wants to get it over with and wants somebody to groove a pitch to Judge.  Hour 2: Boomer has a Mickey Mantle replica jersey he bought in the 1980's and brings it to the studio. Gio says when someone cuts him off, he gives them the high beam flash. We talked about aggressive drivers and what to do when you are around them. We took calls on how to combat road rage drivers. Jerry returns for an update but first we talk about Elton John being a Braves fan and Boomer tells us he met him once. He was also invited to  his house but he didn't go. Luis Severino had a no hitter through seven but was pulled because he was coming off an injury. Jerry plays a clip from the Yankees locker room and there's a rap song blasting with unfortunate lyrics. The 49'ers beat the Rams on MNF. Jerry has audio of Peyton Manning calling a 49'ers play and it seems way too complicated. In the final segment of the hour, we look at the weather forecast and wonder how the Mets are going to get these final games in. We also talked about a fishing tournament scandal out of Ohio. Fishermen stuffed weights into the fish to make it heavier for the weigh in. Should we be hoping for a double header rainout today for the Mets?  Hour 3: It's going to be interesting to see what MLB will do with the Mets if the double header gets rained out today and the Braves lose. A caller brings up Knicks Head Coach Tom Thibodeau's new haircut. What happens to sports bettors and over/unders for the season if the Mets don't play the full 162 games? It's not looking good for Starling Marte to return to the Mets anytime soon. Jerry returns for an update and starts with Luis Severino having a no hitter through seven before he was pulled because he is returning from an injury. Albert Pujols hit HR #703. The 49'ers beat the Rams on MNF. A fan ran on the field with a pink smoke bomb and he was tackled by a Rams player. Could Davis Webb be the starter on Sunday for the Giants? Tyreek Hill has fun with the media. Coach Mike Leach has marriage advice for a sideline reporter. The Nets played a preseason game last night and Ben Simmons actually played in the game. Kareem Abdul-Jabar took a shot at Kyrie on social media. In the final segment of the hour, the Cardinals fan who caught HR #703 would not give it back.  Hour 4: Boomer is impressed by the 49'ers defense as they beat the Rams last night on MNF. Boomer thinks the Eagles could go to the Super Bowl but they will need home field advantage in the playoffs. We go through the teams that we believe could win the Super Bowl right now. Chiefs, Chargers, Bengal and Bills in the AFC. In the NFC it's Green Bay, Tampa Bay, L.A. Rams and the Eagles. Will Wink Martindale blitz Aaron Rodgers this weekend in London? We play win/loss for the next few Giants games. Boomer has the Giants going 2-11 the rest of the way. He thinks their offense is not very good. Boomer has the Jets going 7-6 the rest of the way. Jerry returns for his final update of the day and starts with the Yankees beating the Rangers with Luis Severino throwing seven no hit innings before he was pulled. Where will Judge wind up next year and where will deGrom wind up? The 49'ers beat the Rams on MNF and a fan ran on the field with a pink smoke bomb in support of animal rights. Brian Daboll is asked about Daniel Jones' injury and he is very hesitant with his response. Tyreek Hill chose the Dolphins over the Jets because of state taxes. In the final segment of the show, we talk about the weather forecast for the Mets and the risk of injury. Who would win in fights between WFAN staffers that are Mets fans vs Yankees fans?

Wensberg. (Founders #263)[9:40] Reading this book is like having a one-sided conversation with one of the greatest entrepreneurs to ever live who just speaks directly to you and tells you, “Hey this is my philosophy on company building.”[12:40] His main idea is that business exists for one reason and one reason only —to provide service for other people.[12:50] Everything I do is serving my true end — which is to make a product that makes other people's lives better.[13:47] A sale is proof of utility.[15:00] The sense of accomplishment from overcoming difficulty is satisfying in a way that a life of leisure and ease will never be.[16:00] I think Amazon's culture is largely based on one thing. It's not based on 14. It's based on customer obsession. That is what Bezos would die on the hill for.  —Invest Like The Best: Ravi Gupta[20:04] Later Bezos recalled speaking at an all-hands meeting called to address the assault by Barnes & Noble. “Look, you should wake up worried, terrified every morning,” he told his employees. “But don't be worried about our competitors because they`re never going to send us any money anyway. Let's be worried about our customers and stay heads-down focused.” — The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon by Brad Stone (Founders #179)[20:40] Henry Fords philosophy: Get rid of waste, increase efficiency through thinking and technology, drop your prices and make more money with less profit per car, watch your costs religiously, when needed bring that business process in house, and always focus on service.[21:15] Money comes naturally as the result of service.  —Henry Ford[21:56] Churchill by Paul Johnson. (Founders #225)[22:10] Churchill tells his son “Your idle and lazy life is very offensive to me. You appear to be leading a perfectly useless existence.”[23:45] 3 part series on the founder of General Motors Billy Durant and Alfred Sloan:Billy Durant Creator of General Motors: The Story of the Flamboyant Genius Who Helped Lead America into the Automobile Age by Lawrence Gustin. (Founders #120)Billy, Alfred, and General Motors: The Story of Two Unique Men, A Legendary Company, and a Remarkable Time in American History by William Pelfrey. (Founders #121)My Years with General Motors by Alfred Sloan. (Founders #122)[24:16] Henry Ford's ONE idea that was different from every other automobile manufacturer:He was determined to concentrate on the low end of the market, where he believed that high volume would drive costs down and at the same time feed even more demand for the product. It was a fundamental difference in philosophy.  — Billy, Alfred, and General Motors: The Story of Two Unique Men, A Legendary Company, and a Remarkable Time in American History by William Pelfrey. (Founders #121)[25:50] There must be a better way of doing that. And so through a thousand processes.[27:59] The only way to truly understand what you're doing is to do it for a long time and focus on it.[28:30] It's unbelievable how much you don't know about the game that you've been playing all your life. — Mickey Mantle[32:25] One idea at a time is about as much as anyone can handle.[35:45] Picking up horse shit used to be a job.[37:30] That is the way with wise people — they are so wise and practical that they always know to a dot just why something cannot be done; they always know the limitations. That is why I never employ an expert in full bloom. If ever I wanted to kill opposition by unfair means I would endow the opposition with experts. They would have so much good advice that I could be sure they would do little work.[38:20] I cannot say that it was hard work. No work with interest is ever hard.[40:45] None of this works unless you bet on yourself. And usually you are not in the best position when you have to make this decision.[49:59] The most beautiful things in the world are those from which all excess weight has been eliminated.[50:15] Rick Rubin: In the Studio by Jake Brown. (Founders #245)[54:10] I can entirely sympathize with the desire to quit a life of activity and retire to a life of ease. I have never felt the urge myself.[55:30] I don't wanna make a low quality cheap product. I wanna make a high quality cheap product. To do that he's literally got to invent the ability to mass produce cars —which did not exist before Henry Ford.[56:00] A principle rather than an individual is at work. And that the principle is so simple that it seems mysterious.[56:25] He says if we can save 10 steps a day for each of the 12,000 employees that I have, you will save 50 miles of wasted motion and misspent energy every day. The way Ford's brain works is very similar to the way Rockefeller's brain works. — Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller by Ron Chernow. (Founders #248)[58:25] What a line! : No one ever considers himself expert if he really knows his job. A man who knows a job sees so much more to be done than he has done, that he is always pressing forward and never gives up an instant of thought to how good and how efficient he is. Thinking always ahead, thinking always of trying to do more, brings a state of mind in which nothing is impossible.[59:10] I refuse to recognize that there are impossibilities. I cannot discover that any one knows enough about anything on this earth definitely to say what is and what is not possible.[59:30] Not a single operation is ever considered as being done in the best or cheapest way in our company.[1:01:05] Continuous improvement makes your business likely to survive economic downturns.[1:05:27] “The definition of business is problems." His philosophy came down to a simple fact of business life: success lies not in the elimination of problems but in the art of creative, profitable problem solving. The best companies are those that distinguish themselves by solving problems most effectively. — Setting the Table: The Transforming Power of Hospitality in Business by Danny Meyer. (Founders #20)[1:06:38] The best companies are those that distinguish themselves by solving problems most effectively.[1:06:53] That is the point that Henry Ford is making. You should thank your stars for the problem that you're having because once you solve it, you will now have better problem solving abilities. And therefore it's likely over time, that your company becomes more successful as a result of you being forced into this very difficult position to actually grow and acquire these new skills, because business is problems.[1:08:45] Lucas unapologetically invested in what he believed in the most: himself. —George Lucas: A Life by Brian Jay Jones.
