But that's okay that's -- the dealer's room. I like it. I thought maybe we were at Caesars palace in Las Vegas or something -- -- with soreness. In -- -- gambling here. Just remember -- your eights and your aces. -- -- and unless you wanna double down and gone on aces which is not that bad either while with -- you. But I don't gamble. -- okay well I guess that's where that discussion ends so five out save over the weekend I thought maybe you were a little sore. You know after that sort of outing so I brought you some gaps. Is what I do with my kids when they're sore. I brought in a little Teddy bear it's melting this ice thing all over the floor.

Scared to fail so are you still want to go -- also little slap us it's no questions asked her but he also noble and no light also sacked and they've done it.

Ball came right out of the -- -- I guests. Wrong with my glove and at any rate in the chin neck area. Who threw it. Not just an excellent gardener -- and unions. So I know who it is and analyze the standard now so light in June when you ask me. Really good teacher asking the question and answers. Because it's actually always better when it comes out of your mouth instead of mine. That's disgusting never sit down again. The answer dude that's what I'm talking about I -- That's -- -- -- how do you feel we don't have to incriminate anybody heroes on first it was you know fix it like -- -- in the throat. Dignity. Should in my opinion my RX -- animal and land down -- resting. Can't believe. And yes I always ISO against degrees or any situations though. And honestly in the ground -- Has gone. Mentally a little breather you have to stick a hole -- -- harder it's not. Gonna just slot well it's my. -- -- good so you would have been okay to go Saturday. Truly fun but I -- loses.

It -- has since switched a camera on me I'm no I did not hear that okay well here we go let's let's give Brian and a look at. What do you think. I don't know let's look at German Shepherd. I did I can't tell what the hair. I guess it is yes whatever it is strictly Ortiz. As he's -- Maria Wakefield. -- I I guess it looks like down the first base line to me maybe not. Yes a blanket. Very locally. So can we dress up dobbs like that like it we -- dubs his hair to look like you. She lightly shouldn't actually dobbs what do you say -- rigors. -- Corner. But he but he should do. -- Get a little La -- I can't wait till we get the calls from Peta on this one. Peters well I don't really -- think that it's ruled a B I don't like the look although I think the dog. Was 08. -- It was what. That's what we're that it. It timeout. Or. Who does -- work. Right then that's just mean -- ruin people's careers right there -- Up up all right listen I've got you before with like these could scantily clad lady in in the shot behind me. That was. The that was mind numbing. Don't do that. -- do -- -- don't blades. I about a you know how you felt when he got hit in the throat on Saturday. Yeah -- feel terrible yet I think I need dramatic right now. -- Did you don't think that. Into -- got CCC. He knows who is huge -- All right that's enough how long and even planning that that's what I wanna know how long have you been doing that. Seriously. I. Planning for -- committed. And respond to since the peninsula. -- a year seriously if you keep snapping your fingers I think somebody else might appear. Don't think that should happen and your lone. Like an animal in this article that here please send this down the line to Bryant so he could see it this is what I saw literally like two minutes ago. And it's why -- so stunned. We'll look at the background. -- now. What does that. The machine. The machine at Boise or is it cousin of the deal -- he lives next door isn't -- much. I mean where's the red ball. I don't know I'm not -- today eighty just comes over for sugar once in awhile and we don't months -- -- didn't sugar. You don't call him -- do. Not -- -- referred to him does him. As him okay. Well I tell -- -- for -- you know here at the cheap seats why not -- little -- -- really go after that that's a but the wonderful question. Com what do we do this. -- let let's read some viewer emails. So could perhaps save us. This spring I -- change the because you do have a big fan club which apparently has grown by one since I last saw you. This one is from Joe in Summers Montana who writes that Chris first. Gotta say I love the show especially the segments of Brian Wilson I'm a lifelong Giants fan originally from Pacifica California. I live in Montana announcer I don't get to catch -- game very often. I wrote because I wanted to send a warm fuzzy to Brian and say thank you for asking you to take on the Dodgers flight in the background at last week's show. I was thinking the same thing when the show started what were you thinking -- there come on Chris. So I changed it up a little bit as you can -- It -- he's known little girl in Boston it was. -- plant. I met notes. Okay -- hear your 50% correct because what was next to a. -- Right. Thank you work this one from -- Fremont who writes I love your conversations with Brian Wilson and -- my warm fuzzy for that guy. He's gorgeous hilarious has a great sense of style I even like his -- and I normally don't like that hairstyle on any dude. Any chance for a date with that guy who could play Xbox-360. Games did you destroy me Guitar Hero or was -- rock band but he likes to play I can't remember. And I could school of at halo of it just might be the most awesome date in the history of dates and on the same page -- him he's actually two days older than me. Oh mark fourteenth. School me -- well. But I am allowed to what was it -- later yes -- it -- and yes. Well let's makings of 100 and not that we're slash night. So -- could be like blind date we could follow you with a camera. That's that's a whole ownership. Now. Okay would you be interested in hanging out when Amy can we make this happen can you not been on the -- -- and that's very fair. -- -- Sorry about it. All right there is one to a semi serious topic in the world of baseball I'd like to get too because I think you have an area of expertise. Stephen strasburg out for the year because if Tommy John. Love you are one of the ultimate success stories a lot of people don't know but after you were drafted out of LSU you had Tommy John immediately right. Yeah so is he gonna have to learn to pitch differently or can he come back and do the same things he's been doing. On the grid iron and it is big leagues and and had surgery it sounds a little different when you're. I'd surgery your cheer in college and get drafted mom is you still have to be on her road to get there but. You know he's there he's their number one guys they're gonna take it slow they're gonna take it properly and make sure he does everything you DE needs you to come back. -- loose and in his she's there Aso. A little agendas listen Lara set and intends on what doctor doesn't what's what's his biggest challenge. I'd say. Whether it Arnie wants to do in our -- navigator. -- -- -- Is it really painful and it is it is a rehab the killer Warriors at mariner. Swear in the whole time and do it all matters it. When your weak Al east the earlier you massaging. Where you got your -- Arsenal usually. Cheered in here. Depends on where -- -- is ligament and tendon from I don't -- my right arm and a woman laughs so you have to besides the error. The stitches last not -- and then he would go through. All your shoulder exercises because you Shula you know we can you gotta do. Biceps triceps in the -- -- -- your core work in your lower house and you're you're there. Dallas is pretty much every day for two months Bagwell hopefully for baseball he's obviously great for the game so hopefully he'll be back in twelve to eighteen months. You guys in the mean times are right in the thick of the playoff race as we're talking your -- games back -- the Padres in the NL west. Your game -- have back to the Phillies in the wild card chase. Do you ever look at the scoreboard during a game. Me personally not. Obviously you know the team chase -- now San Diego let if you start hoping thirteen to do not. And you lost focus on what you need to do your cells -- always been taught you know you wanna beat somebody yeah to beat him straight up. We -- seven games against these guys were just enough to step up play a little baseball. You know they they've beaten us seven times I don't see it done. Being out of the question is why maybe we can do the same thing so we can. Maybe -- between three or four games at the most in the just play good baseball heads up -- you know will be able to win it. Outright is simple answer -- teams loose and then you win claimed the team's. -- school and one quick question before trivia. Is the bearded part of the let's start the playoff mentality today or did you just wanna change it up. It was basically a road trip and I didn't bring a race here so I got on slams and clean up the next first started the -- in. Like you know -- Any units and 42 degrees and August series and in not. Francisco also Bruschi keep -- who happens. -- I like it the next. The ladies in the control room like to clean shaven but I think you -- tougher ladies in the control room. Pistols Selig -- -- way. That's how this goes because unlucky highness and I didn't see. That. They urge you today agree. So that's fair enough. I body ready for trivia asks. About you actually got to hit during Sunday's game -- rare hitting appearance because he worked up the eighth in the night. So I wanna know who has the most career hits out of all the Giants relief pitchers. And how many -- Mean he's not active. Well and excited he's -- -- all he did see practice. Yeah. Fine you wanna go that way I will rephrase your honor. Out of all the active pitchers on your 25 man roster who has the most career hits of the Giants relievers and how many. Giants relievers seeing. Chris Ray came from the American League during half sells anything. The National League firm solid nine years ten years here arm. Will get Sosa Ramirez came in early pitched both leagues. Gosh I have to say I don't wanna see this and don't wanna be right but I think it is. You may be -- and it -- how many. I hate saying he gone off. Yeah we'll give it -- -- Jeremy FL with three. Yeah. -- -- honest AM Angel and innocents are done about since really not. So it bothers you that he has more hits than you. But it is -- is being bothers me that he has more hits zero. A do you now my. -- stints on video I don't have your batting stance. But if I remember. Mean can you show us what it looks like. -- video. Control room. -- sorry we don't we don't have that now sorry we don't have the video but if I remember correctly it's your very operate -- like this. They are you not. -- close -- then what are you should only help me -- known as the -- couch. Comfortably. What did you have to -- show me. Think machine wants to annually money. That is -- but think of how that would entertain America if they saw that guy. Doing your batting stance just think of how much you would help this country the machine is still here I didn't see them. Can you call out for real quickly. Hold -- let me try machine. Machinery here. -- I'm an earlier talking in the presidency yeah. RA. Well minute the next RBC's the machine tell he's got some real followers here on the cheap seats pretty sure we'll own. And doubt Al talk too soon -- right buddy -- This was an interesting discussion. Yes yes absolutely we accomplished a lot yeah we did. My -- might therapy bills going to be through the roof this week. Solid. My body. Take care here. Right I think a and again need -- 22 timeout after that are you. I guess -- if you guys wanna guess exactly who that was in the background. The machine why don't you follow my Twitter account Chris underscore Rose fourteen and let me know that way I got to shake this out of my head move out. Are right -- congratulations to the kids from Hawaii whose run at the Little League World Series came up just a bit shy when he lost to Japan over the weekend. In the meantime let's get to know just how good the stars of today work when they were only mighty mites. That's slowly moment first game all stars and -- twelve. Threw one hitter hasn't changed our -- I think I was like twelve. -- -- games at home run it like this red lobster I think this has like 430 years on my my grandfather was sick and I told my mom that I did. To make him feel better and I hit a home run -- around first base then turn around point in my -- she cried. My brother who is he's to work a lot he wasn't able to come on -- playing. -- When I'm on the bases this call my guys jumping. Out of the crowd and just to a movie because those that's pretty cool it's. -- -- Grand Slam and then a two run home run in the same game and my second when I had my dad goes running downhill to get the ball and that's karma for us. I remember getting -- go really really early in the morning and planet not a classic games. We don't do that now with -- those are those are pretty funny it's a mutual friends and he just had a fun time baseball. Palmer -- eight years old mom going to the World Series. And a lot of guys who have played with -- -- -- someone good friends today so let's doesn't lasting memory from. Housing Levy is allows that based alone and I've never had a Grand Slam before. And now I'm and they got thrown -- -- behind it feels like a gift from god and and I hated need to win out -- and I could not believe I forgot to run. Around the bases. I love all those stories -- they're just big kids at heart are right it is true it's not right now. Not for one of our guests but for me I get tested by the batting stance guru -- right NASCAR what do you have for me this time so. And ninety's and then he does that like yes. But he put together a year no one to -- are where he would go down. And then up. Man that's a little bit like this. I should tiger do it's. Coach anonymity ever thought about turning and looking at the pitcher like that because these so called around. Item baffled. All the way up right. I mean -- It worked for the timeframe I would guess Jose Cruz. Rubber pact with the Astros right right guys are with me on that one. Mickey more DB I've no idea cargo ahead. Who is. Craig Counsell. Beautiful. Natalie do you make me look like an idiot on the web. You have to take my heart out and stop on it has -- courts. Scored the winning run for the Marlins in the World Series in 997 against my beloved Cleveland Indians. And up about that as we moved up. They're. -- our final guest is actually the perfect guy you want close in this program. After all coming into this week he led the NL in -- with 37. He's the undisputed leader baseball's best bullpen which helped San Diego building healthy lead in the NL west. He is back again on the cheap seats that of course the two time All-Star closer to Padres. He spell -- -- LR yeah. Don't pretty did you know about here in Arizona and -- have to wake up -- Texas schools on doing pretty good. -- -- -- -- If you've got four kids right. Yes -- yes so. We're taping right now it is is it 10 AM in Phoenix I was get confused it's 9 AM local time in LA what time -- visit. It's 9 o'clock OK all right -- wired to sleep and and -- -- must be like the rest of the ball players a wake up at like noon. I'm when I'm at home in San Diego I've pretty much my kids' -- nearly 630 every day even during the summer. Maybe they'll obviously -- seventh so if I go on the road and wake up at eight or nine nights sleep and it to me. So what do you do the rest of the day your your ball game you don't get to the yard until like one or two I'm guessing so now what's. You know -- city -- walk around downtown indeed. They go to fitness center maybe. Go grow -- deal with one of the coaches or something you know because they're usually but. It's not -- yeah I'm not a normal ball where I guess I don't say penciled in. Okay well let's go over this the itinerary in Phoenix since it's a thousand degrees. It's like being on the sun out there you're not gonna walk around town right. Now know walking around talent -- probably did there's an early movies there's movie theater -- by the hotel August in movies it starts at 10301040. An accident or go to the ballpark or. It's my guy just sit around watching law and order today just -- relaxing. Are you huge law and order -- is. I am obsessed with law and order had to -- seen every one ever. I'm not obsessed within but I. I do enjoy it you know I I like the whole suspense what's gonna happen and who did what I I enjoy that. Okay so do you like the old cast like with the with Lenny brisk go out there -- You know and remember when Christopher and off the guy who played big on sex in the city yet but do you do -- old school with a -- to go new school. I like the old staff at school. I'm not released under the new guys it. Soon -- Originally dual school -- okay cool. But -- to talk a little baseball. I I read in the San Diego papers where he said listen everybody don't panic. At the time -- taping you guys have lost four straight just got swept by Philadelphia and everything obviously. Continue to feel -- sense because you do have some young guys in their clubhouse a little bit that maybe some guys are on edge getting into September. No way you know -- Philly the first your game the first game in extra innings -- a nail -- back and forth. I'm putting guys on base and then now on Saturday game pretty much was a really close game and so the very and we just didn't score runs and then. The Sunday game kind of got away from us a little bit. Not you -- but it. With young guys ever intent didn't -- they're not you know trigger now what should we do we haven't called the team meeting -- any -- they're not. Same we needed she meeting we're doing anything. You know we've we all chalked it up instead. -- last quarter of the first time all year that's one that's amazing. Soon we lost I in team in the standings so we're still five games. I think if we're gonna lose four games thousand times do it so you know we shared we have played well in Arizona this year. And we wanted to redeem ourselves -- I think this is a good place for us to common. Redeem ourselves and -- last game against Arizona and they kind of looked up on us eleven to five so. We're legendary you know us to get to them this time. Plus there's no need to worry because of course we know what the Padres bullpen. The force is always with you. And those people that don't know you guys travel would be very interesting character out of the bullpen every day can you tell us a little bit about your -- We'll actually let you know -- everybody -- the average guys there's Bryan went right there is one who started dividend. Here wasn't -- he came back properly usually you give up team backpackers some like that's -- guys. While we decided to go to the forest you know if you go to and down because I actually saw I was pretty go back I guess also gym -- an early in the year in. I picked it up and I had -- for about a month -- in just waiting for somebody do some. You know student and now Brian web we James Tampa. And he's completely forgot the whole candy bags so I pulled out you what do you start awareness and then now there's a couple people said when we hung -- not. -- -- months or -- Washington game and we hung them up and somebody said. They are looks they just hung yoga and and -- why -- guys goes yeah. This energized -- -- have a chance against horrible and it just examine that and mentioned bock has showed up. And now and -- we have other stories characters what in the waiting for September rookies so. Yeah it has got a bit like our rally monkey and get cheated senate are so what's your favorite character from Star Wars. You know here -- -- be you know Laura console. Oddly enough I had my wife dress up as Francis -- a one time a second a weird. Not -- -- that's actually an inside joke between near next no it's not yet it is he got their constant last year. You didn't wear it did you now didn't it. Does that really is that's it that's a tough visual for me right now you wearing the old. Princess -- ear flaps although I gotta say is on this it September with the sandy obliges him -- -- -- all the rookies in a dress up in Columbia on W Wanda. Look for when Maria and endurance so I mean it. Are we gonna stick with the star -- genre are we going to. Bring us out. It's just it's a possibility but I also will say we're gonna branch out and I I don't think he doesn't ever seen this before so. -- were excited about it like it something to to look forward to do you wear -- penitentiary. T shirts to bed. Is it like on a little -- for you now. Actually I have a couple times and I don't know why does troubled times does a really comfortable shirts. You know they're always there around the locker might have so many and that's why I brought him home. But I'm. Not aware is an ideal time but it wouldn't it be pretty nice my wife did did you have what -- wicket on the road trip. I'm no I don't it was ashes Leicester or or at -- so I am wondering now. Now laundry okay you must feel tremendous pride though with what's going on what the bullpen because -- -- you look at the numbers flat out across the board. It's the best in baseball and people say that now it's a six inning game against the Padres because 789. It goes you know greater -- Adams and bell and it's over I mean that must be tremendously uplifting do you. Walsh for me personally it is because in 2000 and not Ortiz doesn't name our bullpen really wasn't as good as it was no set when I first -- the Padres and you know and nine. I got the closer role and I'm. Base it was a leader down there. And one of my goals list maker Bolton one of the best around you know like it was back in seven and in target -- tradition. The bullpen is always been really good. And this year me and Mike Adams got together during spring training we talked all the guys surgeon Darren balls are pitching -- and -- aren't there rocker so. And now guess Geathers and where this is the reason we're gonna win games and lose games does this bullpen right here. And we had every spring training guys there even if they're not here right now and we all start buying into and believe and and be counted. Tight knit family so when guys who come up only after don't want just come out for two days. It was likes he's been there all year you know -- no reason outsider. You know our our theory down there is throw strikes keep the ball down pass on indulging Scott. Now that's -- announced it short and simple and we have we do we do that really nice. Well you guys have been rule in the NL west pretty much since day one this season. You know the beginning of the year you actually -- Pacific the first episode of the cheap seats and we talked about the possibility that you could get dealt during the season. Maybe Adrian Gonzales as well. Well here you come trade deadline your pick it up a kick up hairball stars in Miguel Tejada and Ryan -- week. I mean you're looking around -- same point everybody start to believe that we can be world champions right. Yeah acting and a clubhouse we all certainly -- believed we can win the whole thing early on. I think it was like April may and then June and then I dig that up front office started believing we can win the whole thing. They went out -- -- went on got to somehow. With John and Brian I -- down. I really believe that we're all the front office. The players the coaches everybody really starts believing that we can do this we can -- all we can win the hole the even know. We're not the best offensive team. The best out pitchers out there we don't consider ourselves the best pitchers because this season our season isn't over yet. You know we still know we ever -- truth you know we won all five our starters have balls all our until didn't digits wins. So. You know every day -- just gone day by day and general work -- hard but we had a a good organization and game coaching staff and players that we don't believe in the one thing that we can win at all. I have a friend before -- get out of here remember it's it's trivia time it's a little while since he played and that once again I ask a question that pertains to you so you -- set. Aren't ready right Heath Bell you have 37. Of the team's 38 saves this year. Who earned the other one and against which team -- -- earn it. It's down do you little -- -- against the Florida Marlins and that's awesome -- five -- up here. Nice -- solid yet it was back on June 27. I think you should work like eighteen straight days -- they decide to give you want off is that right. I dig I had three years -- games stray and it and that time I was still -- when it's on thirty pitches and innings so that you media outlets like Gunderson gave. You know they sit down and I said okay all right this. As always we appreciate the time is law and order stolen TV right now actually showed enough on -- -- there -- wanted to know what episode it was. On. Not a Dennis and not a beautiful sister and it was sister knows who's -- -- in the it was a sister always works out that way doesn't tests CEOs get his yards get stuck looking at the ugly sister. Do you use the beasts they can't leaders -- my friend will talk you down alive thanks as always go back to bed. I'd take him. I'd say that's gonna do it for today on this episode of the cheap seats remember you can always follow me on Twitter it is Chris underscore Rose fourteen and send us your mass email to a rhythm especially during the Brian Wilson segments. It's the cheap seats at foxsports.com. Speaking of our good -- one last look at what happened on today show. Please. I'll see -- next.
