I was driving home yesterday, as I enjoy doing, listening to the MLB channel on XM, as I enjoy doing when they talk about baseball but Casey Stern was gone so I didn't have to sit through 30 minutes of "Lincessant" basketball chatter. (Run on much?)
Mike Ferrin was sitting in for CS and Jim Bowden was there as always. They were discussing 6 teams and who had the best manager and GM. Bowden wanted no part of naming one or two of the best GM's and said they were all good. Ferrin coaxed him into talking more about each. One of the teams was San Francisco. One of them made a valid point that Sabean had a World Series winner and drafted and developed their pitching staff blah blah blah. (I'm sorry. All I can think about when I think of Sabean is trading Nathan and Liriano for one season of AJ.) Then, I'm not sure which one said it, but he mentioned getting Dick Tidrow as part of the front office as an attribute to Brian Sabean.

just had a Dick Tidrow reference on inside pitch on xm. Just sayin'.
@MichiganGoat @BleacherNation @KatieKatCubs
they were talking about how great each teams GM was and mentioned DT as part of SF's FO. In reply to MichiganGoat Brett Taylor
@BleacherNation @MichiganGoat @shawnohare1 @katiekatcubs
Know what show it was on? The context?
@BleacherNation @MichiganGoat @katiekatcubs
it was on Inside Pitch at about 4:45 pm CST In reply to Brett Taylor
Dick Tidrow reference earlier today has bleachernation.com
all in a tizzy.
didn't see the Tidrow thing, but we talked about that Garza stuff.
not sure of the story, but somehow, DT has taken on a mythic Bill Braske, Chuck Norris quality on that site. In reply to Mike Ferrin
So when he is mentioned outside the site we all go nuts like Stratofanatics at Lenny Dykstra's mention of SOM in the 86 NLCS
he kinda has that quality in the game too. Tidrow is totally ninja."

I love it! I'd love to get him on, but he doesn't do any media. Amazing pitching guru. And an 80
if you could just let him know he has cult status at bleachernation that would be awesome! Thanks Mike. In reply to Mike Ferrin
Sooooooo that was exciting!!!
