Bob Costas and Al Michaels talk with Chick Hernandez-7/7
Thu, 7 Jul 2011|
She is in Washington dot com. I know Bob Costas and Al Michaels they are normally see not NBC broadcasting Sunday Night Football -- you know with the lockout. Well apparently they have some time on the -- so tomorrow. You can find them in the -- that the Mets and Giants game in San Francisco that's for tonight. Now they -- check. Both these guys obviously are no stranger to the play by play -- so. It will be strange -- working together for this ball game. I think that's the ball. -- -- I've known each other forever we've worked together in other settings but never actually called the game together. And Al was a great baseball -- through the years but hasn't had a chance because of where the network rights wound up as a chance to do baseball on TV since 1995 and I've been doing games for the past couple years on the baseball network. Just because I love baseball on its place to do the game so I said Al about a year ago what we try to get -- you first schedules work out and we can call a game together just for the fun of us and us. We're doing tomorrow night but I was a little nervous when Bob brought the big -- it's been quite a while on. You know I get good thinking about blow it will be the Mets in the giants' order good at playing pool and play on Jones and -- had good years. And then I had -- of -- get into the 21 century and take a look at who was playing but it's you know it's been a lot of fun for me besides. -- fell away from baseball when you don't do you know follow it nearly as closely as when you're covering did so for me over the past the couple months on this game was tough coming up. Lot of fun I just sort of watching a lot of base. On a really very much back into it. Certainly you guys know the game of baseball here in town with -- Washington Nationals. I think it's a strange goings -- -- rhythm and leaving after winning eleven of twelve and got a young man in Bryce Harper who seems to be the future of this franchise what's your view on them. Holding Bryce Harper down there in double A ball he's obviously had some issues -- on the -- to the pitcher's stuff like that but what's your -- Bryce Harper right now in in the days. Over the doing the right thing that. Got to do the right thing that they took a cautious approach with Stephen Strasburg and remember Strasburg. What's a bit more advanced because He had gone through. Awful collegiate career at San Diego State and even then they brought him along relatively. Slowly and that's the plan with harper and they have a chance to have a very good team. -- Stephen Strasburg back gets the Tommy John surgery -- Bryce Harper on the horizon with Ryan Zimmerman and other players they have other guys on their pitching staff that can be effective. They have a chance to have a good team and there's no point in rushing things. I know you guys that you have work tomorrow night which is good considering the NFL lockout is still in effect. Here in Seattle Washington Redskins do some strange things as well. And I didn't. Not treated so nicely by the Washington Redskins this past season where do you see him ending up but in fact He plays again it's. Great question you guys are probably closer to it you see it on a day to day basis right now. I don't know the answer to that question right now I mean there's a lot of things that will take place once they are able to. Get back to free agency. To trades just signing people and all of that so I don't know what cards the Redskins are probably holding right now. I would. I would tend to think that you know Donovan is close to the end of his career in the middle of the beginning of his career certainly. And that if the right quarterback was able to be signed or traded for by the Washington Redskins. That would be the guy who would be coming into -- CSN Washington dot com.
