The Kevin Calabro Show: Live from Sahalee Country Club

Jul 29, 2010, 4:37 PM | Updated: Apr 4, 2011, 7:55 pm

We’re live today from a sun-soaked Sahalee Country Club for the first round of the U.S. Senior Open. Bruce Vaughan from Kansas is the leader in the clubhouse at 4-under par, while Fred Couples finished his round four shots off the pace at even par. After his round, Vaughan caught up with Bill Swartz and “The Go-2-Guy” Jim Moore.

On the challenges that Sahalee poses:
You gotta curve it on a lot of these holes. You gotta cut it off the tee or hook it off the tee, and then same thing with the next shot into the greens. It’s a very tough golf course, and coming from Carnoustie last week where there’s not a tree on the place hardly, it’s different.

On his opening round 4-under 66:
Today was an exception I would have been tickled to just shoot even par today. I made a few putts, that you’re not always gonna make and got it up and down a couple times early. It was a great round.

With the trade deadline less than 48 hours away, ESPN baseball analyst Buster Olney joined the show to talk about the Astros trading Roy Oswalt to the Phillies and what other major moves we might see before the deadline.

On how the Phillies did in the trade for Roy Oswalt:
People around baseball I talked to after the deal was announced were asking the question, wow, if Houston was really willing to kick in about half of Oswalt’s salary, about $11 million of the $23 million owed to him for 2010-11, … Why in the world didn’t they tell us that? We would have been interested. So I think the Phillies did pretty well based on the evaluations of people from other teams, they love the deal for the Phillies.

On whether the Mariners would ever consider trading Ichiro:
There’s no question in a vacuum that would make sense. But we know how important he is to the franchise, we know his relationship with Mariners ownership, so it’s one of those you think about, and it’s just not going to happen.
