welcome back to the kron 4 morning news... every morning at 7:45 we talk sports with gary radnich. and in case you missed it here's the gary's world rewind.
9:46 am
with a throw up to the plate. and rizzo is out at the plate.">(mark) good morning gary. everyone is freaking out about this collision at the plate, but i didn't think it was that bad. gary says we've seen this before with buster posey. that was six seasons ago already when scott cousins ran into him at home plate. gary says to his credit he bounced back. after what happened to posey they had this rule about runners running into catchers... but they still can. gary says they finessed the rule. the one last night wasn't as bad as the buster posey collision, but that is what
9:47 am
created rule number 7.13, the buster posey rule. (mark) lets talk about the giants. they are 26-46... 20 games out of first place. that is a complete opposite record from the first place rockies who are 46-26. it has been a pretty brutal season so far. gary says it is their worst and most disappointing season since 1985 when they lost 100 games. he says they still have 3 months of the agony. i looked up their stats compared to last season, the giants didn't get to 46 losses until august 3rd last year. so they are six weeks ahead of schedule. gary says they have given us three
9:48 am
championships this decade so he thinks they deserve a pass. but there are the fans who say if they are going to pay to go to the games, the team better entertain them. gary says we can just give them this one year. he's tired of the fans complaining, but he understands it. (mark) and what happened to the a's? they are also in last place right now at 31-39. they are only 15.5 games out of first place. yonder alonso is having a great season at first, for a
9:49 am
brief flash he was leading the all star voting for first place. but he has dropped down the list. gary says the a's had just come off a four game sweep of the yankees... but despite that and it being summer vacation, they only managed to get 10-thousand fans at the game last night. i like going to a's games at the coliseum. gary says they have done everything to try to make the games entertaining with the new gm being a promoter. they do pretty well on the weekend, but it's hard during the week. gary says the fans are tired of all the good players getting traded. (mark) i hate talk about a dodger, but cody bellinger is killing
9:50 am
it. he just broke the record with 21 home runs in his first 50 games. gary says the dodgers have a lot of young talent. bellinger is leading the national league with home runs, and he wasn't even brought up to the major leagues until 20 games in. his dad played for the yankees and the angels and his brother just got drafted by the padres. gary says they have a good thing going down there, and the giants fans just have to suck it up. gary says he read a stat about arizona, colorado, and the dodgers, and since 1969 there have never been three teams this close after fathers day. they are all within a game of each other. gary says people are
9:51 am
starting to pick on the announcers now because the giants are doing so bad. (mark) the big headline that is standing out that might freak people out for no reason... kevin durant opting out of the second year of his contract. durant will opt out and take less money so curry can get his payday, and they can try to keep iggy. gary says he
9:52 am
would like to see iguodala get offered 20 million. gary says as long as they keep durant, curry, thompson, and draymond, the rest of the stuff is just filling it in. he says he has a hunch that iggy's agent is just trying to negotiate more money from the warriors. (mark) speaking of agents. we have dell curry and his agent to thank for steph curry not being a minnesota timberwolf. former minnesota gm was just interviewed and that year in the draft in 2009 the t- wolves had the 5th and 6th pick for point guards and they were going to pick steph curry. but dell curry told his agent, who is also curry's agent, to tell the timberwolves that steph doesn't want to play there. gary says he knew curry wanted to go to the knicks,
9:53 am
but didn't know minnesota was in the mix. he says who knew curry was even going to be half this good, so that's a great story. (mark) another great story... do not break up with your girlfriend this way. it happened at the a's game saturday night. you can text and put stuff up on the a's message board. it says melissa, i am breaking up with you. there is now a new hashtag that says "pray for melissa". gary says he doesn't want to figure it out on t-v... but what was the guy thinking? not a very who are these people?
