Angelo Cataldi: Pete Rose, Keith Hernandez ‘Made Complete Asses Of Themselves’

“He’s got his own problems. He’s going to St. Louis to be honored and he was suspended for a year for copious use of cocaine.”

A pair of recent media missteps by Pete Rose and Keith Hernandez caught the attention of WIP’s Angelo Cataldi.

“We always love to tell people that ‘Man, back in the day those guys were so much smarter and classier’ and all this stuff. And now we’ve got two guys from the era of the 1970s and 80s who made complete asses out of themselves.

“Every once in awhile they bring somebody into the booth. They know before they put him in the booth with the regular announcer whether the guy’s a smacked ass, don’t they? Do you have any idea what NBC Sports was thinking? Because we all give way more credit to previous generations for being way better representatives of humanity.”

Cataldi then played a clip of Rose at a press conference being asked about his past sexual encounters with a woman who claims she was 14 during the acts with Rose, who contends she was 16. Rose told the reporter “it was 55 years ago, babe”.

“Hold on, we have to stop there. Sorry to cut this short, we’re putting him in the booth in front of a live mic for an inning,” Cataldi joked. “He was so bad in the inning, when NBC Sports Philadelphia did the replay, there was no sixth inning. They just removed the entire inning. These old time guys, they’re way overrated.”

Cataldi, who recently joined the Phillies radio booth for an inning, then turned his attention to SNY’s Keith Hernandez, who recently said he didn’t want to do games in Philadelphia any longer due to the Phillies lack of fundamentals and defense.

“This jackass comes out and talks about how he doesn’t wanna do the Phillies games because they don’t play the game the right way?”

Jon Jastremski, who was a guest on the show and also works at SNY, told Cataldi “that was just Keith being Keith”.

“Keith being Keith is fine, but it’s not like he had a pure record of his own as a player,” Cataldi argued as his volume began to rise. “Don’t be doing that stuff about players doing things the right way with your past. He’s got his own problems. He’s going to St. Louis to be honored and he was suspended for a year for copious use of cocaine. Jon Jastremski! Don’t be putting the higher ground when you’re Keith Hernandez when you’ve got your own problems!”

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
