Listen: Dodgers, CBS, Braves discussed on CBS Sports Radio
"On C. B. S. sports radio here's John King Katie. that's very self explanatory junkie cage shows CBS sports radio. still can't believe a team in college football could've been down thirty two points in the third quarter and came back and won. but chip Kelly's bad enough to win that game and bad enough seventeen down thirty two points in the third quarter evidently. I the Major League Baseball season is over next Sunday. for gosh sakes half of these teams have been toe tag for a month and a half we've got a very top every Major League Baseball season and joining us now call Glazer from baseball America joining us here on the John Kincaid show on CBS sports radio tile all these we get a the twins still one hundred we can have the Braves still went a hundred the Dodgers will win a hundred so we're going that were already going to have the Dodgers the Astors the Yankees are already there I mean this is good for baseball. I mean there's no question there's I've become a huge separation between the top and the bottom I don't think anyone ever going to complain when you have some great teams playing some great baseball I think maybe the problem is you look at the other end of the standings and there's a very real chance Major League Baseball gonna have to one hundred and ten Los teams and for one hundred loss teams which have both high the record that does it happen once each really sends baseball expanded back in nineteen sixty nine went up potter's next both came and so I think that there's definitely probably you know some course correction it needs to happen so that you don't have teams that are so so good and teams so so bad there's got to be some meeting in the middle of the guaranteed at that I mean if the if the roles lose one more game there the hundred loss clubs here already gonna have for their which isn't to me is truly incredible it's it's it's shocking it's almost as incredible as the fact that the nationals will be better than last year the Mets will be better than last year the Phillies will be better than last year in the win column. the Braves are already improved by six games off of the ninety win season I'm shocked because I expected all those teams to be better but I expected a pennant race in the National League east and the Braves have just once again swap the competition. one of the things the Braves did was they were really really good about being active about fixing their team during the season I mean that bald head was an absolute mess your back and may and see what it was they were aggressive they brought up as like two key to solid Jacob well with a a broad and Jerry Blevins dampness wars act that the deadline they moving go go get aggressively get Chris Martin and mark the lancet Shane Greene I think you have to give the Braves credit here they came in with a really really good team I've ever present are angry about their all season this signing Josh Donaldson was a bad thing when he saw a really good player just need to get healthy but give the Brits credit for aggressively upgrading their team and the weak point in their of their team earlier during season I should say I think almost better than any other team in baseball I think they're better position in the post season for it not just didn't do it to win a division I think this is a real World Series contender there's one team in the NL black mark off the Dodgers if the Braves they have a good ball kind of the doctors don't okay does that mean though that they will have a distinct advantage over the cardinals because that's a team playing really good ball even though there are very mediocre road team. and I'm glad you brought that up you looked at cardinal one up one three nine even though a lot of guys haven't had the kind of season do you want they're still dangerous and you know even if it's not the national with their pitching staff in the National League is is really good this year the playoff field obviously it's not set yet but the teams we know that are going to be in there's a path for all of them to get to the World Series and we know the Astros as long as they make are gonna be favored over all of them but not completely crazy to suggest one of the two those teams can dock Beyonce was office things break away tell me about the Astros why are they so complete because we got asters too with a hundred one wins we got a Dodger team in nineteen ninety Yankee team was one oh one why would it seems like everybody that I hear tells we always the Astors there there the pre there the favorites if not in some people's minds the prohibitive favorites. Justin Verlander Gerrit Cole that great key and by the way the best offense of any of those teams you just a day. I mean that that does the trick and look there there is a weak point there where you know the fourth starter spot it is an issue and once you get to like an ALCS there's gonna be prohibitive a little bit and World Series specially if you get to a long series and the bullpen has its flaws there's there's no question this is not like the perfect team top to bottom but when you have three starters like that and all things like that you're gonna be favored you know almost every game you play and up the cards the Astros for the team they build both you know through home grown development and trade it's a the Dodgers we do you think they were a little bit bored this year because some point you know they're they're gonna get their hundredth win here but it seems at times there's almost been a little bit of sleep walking. I think a special last few weeks they said that they kind of admitted as much but right now they're just kinda do we think to see what works in the post season I've actually up the Dodgers Rockies game a couple nights ago Kelly Jensen blue another save but you know the way they were putting guys to display on the field is basically a else throw stuff against the wall so you can work from maybe it might be something I want to do the post season I mean there are full. what works mode in the hopefully you know be able to you know bring it back up called the star of the postseason we've done this before number two years ago they had a really bad slob and early September people were freaking out but if you look out at their kind of playing the JV team then about a week before the season they called started back in there ready to go and and made it to the twenty seventeen vaulters. tell me about the more disappointing season the red Sox to the Phillies. I think probably the Phillies you know the red Sox is disappointing but again I I I think the expectations were a little crazy because we see the rear teams who who have these great deep World Series rods it just takes a quarter pitching I mean that's what you have to do the World Series is you know user pictures to the extreme it's not a huge shock that David price server Costello and lot of that staff had took a step backwards and again it was worth it it was absolutely worth of the red Sox did the right thing Chris sale road there as well and you knew that the rated Yankees were going to be a force to be reckoned with the Phillies I think it's his appointment just because they did so much this offseason before five team which allowed with you before the season we talked about it yeah you know we have baseball America's stupid concert place in the big thing was we don't know if Gabe Kapler is going to be better than he was and there she wasn't. spoiler alert he wasn't a lot of our practice management happening you know it's three times in September he didn't have a reliever warming up. three times in his second season in September he didn't have the proper arm warm enough I can't get over it. yeah and that's and again you know we we talk so much about you know you bring it all the free agents but so often we see that you that with the office even doesn't actually win during season and and they're saying like you know the manager and you know you can't predict predict injuries but I I think you wanted to see. dear to all the managerial side and it didn't happen to the point necessary to overtake the team like you know the Braves and the NASA that's why again I remember talking before the season said I think you have to give it to the Braves because you know Brian stickers a good manager everyone else about division you didn't really know that yet and and you know I think of so that definitely helped the Braves throughout the course season I can't wait for the post season again here on this been waiting for for like six weeks settle Kyle look forward to what following your coverage cal Glazer from baseball America thanks for time that about. my pleasure anytime John he joined us on here on the jockey cage show on CBS sports radio look really looking for the baseball post season because honestly the baseball seasons dragging to me in a terrible way. it's just drag of the finish line hopefully they'll be great drama the month of October answer you like to travel all over the country right I mean you're you're you're a guy likes to jump on a plane find a good air fare and jump on a plane and traveling go see someplace you've got that wanderlust nap you enjoy traveling Schepper you like that. like to travel our part time in radio you think I can afford to travel right now I think you just fell perfectly into this you don't even know what I was going to talk about and you fell perfectly into it you can't afford to be able to travel as much as you want to write get a forty travel period okay guess what what if I told you that in the future you will be able to thirty for thirty what if I told you yeah what if I told you that have you seen what Colombian airlines is doing at the piano what they want me to stand the entire flight they are they actually took all they're gonna have to planes to start. they've taken out all the seats. on a plane. they're gonna put up. like of like railings. there are strongly secure it into the ground I'm not buying it you have a strap that you put around you. see you can't fall. and on ninety minute flights are less you're gonna be on the option of buying it to get on a plane where you stand. where you stand up. and they're gonna be able to fit many more people on the planes are great so you have me at that squeeze more more people in these other guys now what what if I told you. that the average flight they're projecting now."
