Cowboy, you're one of my favs! And, I heard you talk to Regan that day. I remember him on the Cubs., etc. My grandmother lived in west-central Indiana and didn't own a TV set. So, when we went to visit her, I would listen to the games on WGN in my father's car. Of course, they were always day games from Wrigley. Phil is a great guest for Ron and others. He threw a great spitter, too.

Thanks for the love,JPG 1954 !!!! Regan was mediocre with the Tigers,but learned the spitter during the '65 offseason,when he was traded to the Dodgers for Dick Tracewski. In a '68 game, Regan slid into second and was called out and some slippery elm tablets escaped his uniform,but somehow Regan wasn't ejected because he told the umps he didn't know how they got into his uniform !!!!!

Hey Cowboy, I'd love to hear you ask Phil Regan about Leo Durocher. I bet he could talk an hour about Leo the Lip!

JGP1954,EVERY older baseball player, executive or fan would love to hear one hour's-H**L,ONE DAY'S-conversation about Leo Ernest Durocher,who in '69,reamed out his ace (and my cousin) Fergie Jenkins for a frivolous reason .(Perhaps Leo didn't care for Canadian lads ;two years later,Fergie became the only black North American-born hurler to pitch 30 complete games in a season for Durocher.) Leo's favourite player of all time,"The Say Hey Octagenarian," Willie Mays,turns 88 Monday,the same age to which his father,Willie Mays,Sr. lived.)

Ron’s utter disinterest in the new podcast of his so-called friend, Denny McLain, as expressed in today’s show, reinforces the fact that his interest in the outside world only extends to the tip of his nose.

I know he's very bitter and washed up but why he still won't accept the fact that others are doing new and exciting things is just stupidity. He supresses any talent he's had working with him recently also and refuses to let them spread their wings.

313sports,Cameron is nearing a half-century (next July 1) on the air.It's time he retired for new,more-exciting blood .

Retire to what, Cowboy? And it's not like he's occupying valuable air space, as he's buying time on what's effectively the graveyard shift.

JGP1954,Ron says he isn't that conservative ,which makes me think he's run out of stations which will let him buy time to spew his fantasies and hatred of today's athlete . ( When he's finally off the air,his 70ish,80ish and even 90ish buddies will get more more air time .)

Ron detests Trump, but it seems that's more of a personal, rather than, political judgment. He does, though, routinely side with ownership over professional athletes, so he may be right at home at the Patriot.

Mono,Ron comes from an era during which most fans supported management over players, and in fact,his jock "buddies" who are his guests are usually pro-management and envious of the modern athlete's salaries and power .(Save the NFL,where all but the top one percent are treated as admittedly munificent serfs by the owners,GMs and coaches .)

I did not listen to the show this past weekend for I was out of town. This show has gotten to the point where it's only worth listening to if Alex is producing, otherwise it is literally a train wreck. His disdain for others that he has worked with who have better success without him shows how selfish he really is.
