Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Getting ready for the big weekend. Oh, indeed. Gotta love the second weekend of fantasy baseball. It's wonderful. Of course, I might say that about all twenty six weekends of the fantasy baseball season. Now, they are pretty cool. And there's a couple of games on Thursday that have been pushed to Friday because of weather. We don't want these players to play in thirty degree weather. We want them to be at their best. And obviously some of them have not been in the weather some pictures that just had no command whatsoever. Hitters striking out way too much. And maybe the weather has something to do with that. So we want on the plane weather, sunny weather, and it's supposed to be a nice weekend in the northeast, and I might. Even break out the hammock for some radio play. Listen to my Phillies. We'll see a big injury discuss. We're going to start with that. Here's the buzz. Tristan seems a little bit odd that two days after the trade Turner broken finger which came on a bunt misguided bundle tempt. We still don't have a timetable for how long it's going to be out. And maybe the national just don't know. So let's discuss the other angle to this finding stolen bases in Rhode leagues. And appoints league, you don't need steel, you can ignore them at just add up all the numbers together. So don't go picking up a line of the shields and appoints league, that's ridiculous. You don't want the Gordon points. But in a rodeo, I'm having a tough time finding stolen bases. It really. Is the shields. Greg Allen, Dr Dyson Garrett Hamson maybe of Colorado. There's not much out there. Yeah. Dyson was one of the first that I think is likely available in a large number of leaks that came to mind for me, and even there he's not an everyday player for the Diamondbacks, especially with Adam Jones performing well, initially Dyson just not getting the starts, but they are throwing them in their occasionally for defense as a pinch runner. So if you've got to go and. Fill that one category. Okay. And that's only to the rotor leagues. You gotta be happy in the points leagues that they're more options because it opens up to hitters in which case Enrica, Hernandez might be one of those out there on a number of life. I've been throwing nickhamed who's out there and a lot of leagues he's another one who could be useful in the points. Leave. I like Hamson I like the Hamson thought he's playing regularly. We both had talked a lot about his raw speed during the preseason. He's got a good plate approach, and he's playing regularly now with Daniel Murphy sidelined. Right. And we don't have a real timetable on Murphy either expected to be at least through April. So Ryan McMahon there at home the Rockies for the for the season they faced the dodgers. So they're gonna face good pitching. Although welcome Buehler's first outing was pretty bad, but orients the Sunday night game when he his PIN is wholly aureus against Chad bet, it's at least as of now and the Rockies on a hit. I keep waiting for McMahon. He's still so young. I think it'll be fine. But again between McMahon Hamson in a points league has to be McMahon because he's got power in a row league with so few players running. I think it's Hamson, and I'd agree. I think it's a little bit closer and points leagues. But I'm not as confident that McMahon is going to be in there every single day. I am for Hamson. I feel like Hanson is a better option at second base defensively for the Rockies, and I think McMahon's gonna fall into that occasionally going lefty righty with Mark Reynolds. First base. By the way, some of you know, the sound on our shows and recent episodes, but a little spotty. But we want you to know we are dressing it. Some new equipment is on the way. And we appreciate everyone's constructive feedback other injuries here your Yankees. I assumed was the everyday third baseman. Now. Should I care about that? Well, he still enough basis Willi won't hit for power. And he may even be the leadoff hitter soon. Like they can't back him fifth. What what happens with this Yankee? We're talking about the Yankees the other day, but the end to our injured, I'm not sure we were sure about. Yeah. And I think there is the very real concern that if it goes poorly he loses the season here. I mean, he's out for the year because he'll have to have some sort of procedure to fix this. He is going to work through that. So I would say that that likely a month from now we'll be talking about Andrew getting hard getting back in the lineup. But it is a great opportunity in the short term LeMay who did lead off against the lefty yesterday. And I think that could be the case against most left handers. But maybe he will hit fifth sixth against the righties. He'll play every day. He'll play third base. I've got questions personally watching. About the defense at third compared to how he was at second base. And that could have an impact on the pitchers, but it's an opportunity, and I know the home road splits with the Rockies weren't grade. He was not nearly the hitter he was on the road. But Yankee Stadium does provide them a decent little bump there. So in the daily leagues and the shallow mixed. I think you could at least slot him in there in the home games. Look for new look for news later Thursday on Jake lamb of Arizona and Saint Louis cardinals alpha and more cell zone each having MRI's on different injuries. They both look bad. I I assume they're both going on the injured list and the cardinals could play Tyler Neil or Jose Martinez. I think they would lean to O'neil here. But I don't know and Dexter Fowler is in the walk to hit or run or do anything. So and with our Zona we both love Christian Walker. I assume he would be regular first baseman, and they wouldn't mess around Wilmer Flores over there. But give me your take on these situations. So I'll address Walker I because we made the the cops previously to Hayes lar- that not necessarily where lorries today, but the way that he broke into the brewers lineup is somewhat similar to walkers. They need to be playing him regularly. Like the brewers did with Aguilar. They need to get aggressive with this because he is a player who put a great numbers and AAA and so far so good in the majors. Maybe he's not just this Quadra blade type. And I think it's a good ballpark. First power. Even with the humid or so definitely on board there for the cardinals. I'm a little unsure how that is going to play out the thing with Martinez for me is just they find it a contract they want to audition, I'm here because maybe down the road. He's a trade candidate to an American League team. So I think there's going to be a lot of mix and match. I think you've got gotta wait and see if you can stash one of these guys on a deep bench. Go ahead O'Neill. Great power upside. I'd say Martinez is more batting average driven. Briefly on some hitters to watch over the past week. And to watch this week and Padres outfield hunter Renfro a multi home run game on Tuesday. They still have too many guys friendship Cordeiro is playing and will go they did play. Well Myers and center when they said, they wouldn't I slowly Myers. The only one you have to roster in team standard. But I would rank race over Renfro at this point. You agree. I do agree with that. Yes. And at least so far the lineups are supporting that racists been believe raises played a five the seven games so far Renfro. I think it's you might have also had five I think it's four out of the seven. If you need a middle infielder with Turner, and it doesn't have to be a guy who steals basis. Just get a guy was power, and you can make up the steals in July. Maybe Brandon Lau Tampa Bay going in for some power. There are some new walkers is middle infield eligible. I bet he gets like fifteen home runs for Miami. And then gets traded somewhere else. I think there's more power options out there big power. But enough power that you can pick up speaking of power you on Moncada as a hidden every game. Superpower, three walks restrike. That's what I I noticed. He can't be great players striking out to one hundred times. But he doesn't look like the same hitter. Or is it just feasting on Cleveland's bullpen so far. What do you make a Moncada if anything, oh, we're gonna knock every part of Cleveland? That's not the rotation. I I agree with you on that Moncada. You know, what's really interesting about this and said it comes on the heels of what was an extraordinary spring training slash three. Fifty six four sixty nine six forty two during spring training eleven walk sixteen ks in the sixty four trips to the plate. So it's not like this is just a one week blip. Maybe he has made a little bit of an improvement there. Maybe getting a different look going over to third base is helping them as well. It helps certainly fantasy with the position flexibility here. But I like the fact that he got moved and this had no impact on his hitting a lot of times you see players struggled to adapt. So. I'm willing to buy in here. And by the way for those asking and you do every year ten games mid season eligibility, Mark on catis and five games at third. He needs us five more random Grischuk two home run game. He's hitting row over the past week and also got paid a long term extension, which seemed a little bit odd. I mean, I understand Ozzy obvious is getting on for extension. And some of these other guys Brandon Lau like Scott King reveal grit six in between. We kind of think this is what he is. He's not gonna get any better. But is still like a twenty five Homer God. Which is maybe good enough. It is. And you know, so far he's been a little bit more patient. The walks are starting to come if that develops a little bit. If he bumps up, even the on-base percentage just a little bit. Let's say he gets up to three fifteen three twenty that is going to boost its value by a good amount. So I mean, it's a good ballpark for him. I like the fact that I'm making the commitment to him as a regular player. That's kind of the first time he's really gotten that term opportunity to do. So I'm often asked how do you know when you start to believe in a starting pitcher that you didn't believe in March and the answer is I don't know I need to see more I need to see probably three or four outings. But you know, people are asking about Matt shoemaker who's pitching great Jordan's airman who looks revitalize David has even I know that right there. But you know, these. Guys that are being added leads Chris panic, and holy oriented different. He's guys young. It's a hard. They should be really good match. Shoemaker? I mean, maybe this year's Trevor Williams, but I'm just not really buying. How do you know Tristan? You win your lease. How do you know Wayne actually pick up guys like shoemaker in Zimmerman when when others don't know? Well, one thing is that sometimes your roster forces you into taking some chances, and you simply throw a dart on the wrong around the right guy. If you've got injuries, and you can move guys off to your injured spot or you have players who are struggling or on the sidelines. None of the rotation. You can cut them at a couple of these players. And maybe you just hit the right? Dr for me, though, it's if something has changed now and shoemakers case what's catching my eye is control. So far, pretty good. Keeping the ball down the ground ball rates over fifty percent. We're looking at less than two per nine his walk rate. Now, it's an incredibly small sample. I understand that. But it's a, plus I in fact, just. To throw another name in there. Eric, and I talked about Freddie, parole the other day, and I was very dismissive about him. And then I went to looked and I saw that he's bumped up his fastball velocity near near two miles per hour. These are things I'm writing down as I track guys. Maybe I'd throw it. Dr today, they sit on my bench. I see how they go over the first four to six starts of the season. But these are improvements, and those are the ones that should be catching your eye. We'll be back with more fantasy focus baseball on ESPN radio alongside tristen cock graft. I'm Eric caravel. Anyone who has ever needed self storage knows what a hassle it can be you have to rent borrow track?.
