Tim Raines, Kevin Gausman, Alvin Davis discussed on CBS Sports Radio
I lean towards it being lengthier because we just don't know these things, and they have not historically been getting settled very quickly. There's no reason that that MLB should raise through it. I would Kaltschmitt. Yeah. All right, moving on. Now. Let's talk about hitters of the hitters. The first half was on Monday's show, or Tony and Vlad picture of the first half. You know, Jacob, the ground is number one guy for points leagues and on the player Raider Kevin Gausman was like 1/15 round Pick Freddy Peralta is up there. Chris Bass is having a great season. I just have a tough time going against the ground for this, even though he was a first round pick and arguably the first picture taken at the moment, every draft do you agree with that? He's putting up historic numbers. I wouldn't fight. Beyond that. I will pick Kevin Gausman just based on you know, and you've said this many times. It's the value relative to cost. On Draft day. It was a large divide between these two players. That's the only reason I personally pick Gausman, but I think it's clearly one of those, too, By the way. Zack Wheeler for a very big year exact. Wheeler has had an exceptional year. They don't think he's getting enough. Kudos for well last night might have cost him a start in the All Star game. So the Graham is not going to go to Denver for the All Star game. He wants to, and and he he shouldn't. He should be focusing on the Mets, frankly. Maybe Taiwan. Walker will be the replacement. And then Wheeler started last night at Wrigley Field in his defense again, let them down and his manager, probably so, but we did have a great first half of the season and I like to see him in the in the Australian. When I was growing up. I used to love the All Star game because I would see my player. Remember, we couldn't watch every game. Okay? The only the only chance we have is like Monday night baseball on ABC, TBS of the Atlanta team, and then I would watch the Phillies. W G N You can get the Cubs get the Cubs? Um but, you know, like in the office like it was cool, like I would watch Schmitty every day, Carlton, but in the All Star game I could see Oh, that's a guy I've never seen before. You know, there's Alvin Davis or, you know, just an example. Like Or, like Bob Horner, you know, like he didn't get to see everybody. And you never got to see like you were nailed guys. The Yankee I was in. No, I didn't get to see American League players. Yeah, I like watching back then the eighties who I love the Ulster game just to watch Tim Raines play. Yeah. Yeah, because you didn't get to see the Montreal players as the New York Yankees fan that just wasn't going to happen. The only time is if you watch some of those Mets games when they came to town. I didn't even know where Seattle was growing up, and then, like they have a baseball game and Toronto as a baseball team, and I'm like, Oh, I want to see their players and then I don't remember how sad I was saying Bruce barked in an all Star game, But maybe he was there, you know, said that help build your fan ship now. Seattle being your new team, right? Well that end and baseball cards. I mean baseball cards was the other way. It was like seeing like Mariner. But then you know, like here comes Bruce Box is an all star at 79 or whatever. And then that was the game. Dave Parker throw are wasting time that my name is kingdom. I have to give you the random question, though Oldest stick of top space ball game you've eaten I mean, I've never had one. You've never eaten any of the comment of the packs. Really? I've never actually chewed a piece of gum in my life. Wow. Oh, I see. I haven't in a long time I gave up come well over that, probably two decades ago, but very yes. Never had come that I've never had come out of the pack never had gum in any form. I never had coffee in any form. I've never had coffee so that that doesn't strike me as the weirdest of things, but The God. Thank you. I've I enjoyed. I've had gum. I don't do it regularly. I don't had. Yeah. Never had coffee. I've had baseball cards ruined by a piece of gum. Oh, that the last. That's why they took it out. I hate that. I wish they would put it back in. That was part of the fun of the packs. Really lightweight. Um, oldest gun like I not Not told a good friend of mine. We were opening these up about a year ago. 1988 tops and he ate the gum. And I warned him not to in advance he older than I am. Yeah, That's a problem. That seems so advise 32. It was no. It's 31 year old gum. He ate it, he said. It was dreadful. And it was dreadful and idiot. Shocking. All right. That's a I looked.
