Sixty Games, Five, Last Year discussed on GSMC Baseball Podcast


I mean when. I was reading that article and i remember when i was doing this episode a couple of weeks ago and i was talking about the different issues that the rockies have had as an internal organization thinking about all of the talent that they've had or they could have had at one point or another on their team at the same time. Dj lemay hugh nolan aeronautical. Choi tula whiskey trevor story. That's a really good infield real. I mean i know. I don't know what she would do with the shortstop situation but those are all four really good players that all play at a very very high level. You could've traded for jt real utah. But you didn't want to do that. And as a result and not mentioned they have no pitching. They've literally no pitching. And i think there's there's more issues internally than they even know and i think it is kind of an a an oblivious nece that the owner and the gm both have. And i think that eventually something's gonna have to kick an overdrive for them and they're going to have to be able to figure something out because if not you know they're gonna start slowly deteriorating as a team and even going back to last year i mean. They came out really hot. They were one of the best teams in baseball. And then all of a sudden it was some switched has got turned off and they went back to square one one of the worst teams in baseball. The plummeted from first to last in a matter of days really and it was kind of wild and puzzling to see how bad they went from. In how how quickly. It was too so as a result. I really don't have much faith but the rockies this year but all in all knows what these teams will do. And i think that a lot of people are again. Just speculating. what's going to happen with this with cove. It and that could definitely play a pay. Play a big factor in things especially with teams that are going to be in division races. A guy gets it hasn't been vaccinated. He's out for a week. And that six seven games where you could drop five of six or dropped four of six and you can find yourself in first place one day and then all of a sudden the end of the week in second place trailing by a game. So that's going to be a big thing to you. Know some of these teams that i just mentioned. They could capitalize on teams. That are ahead of them in their rightful divisions getting cove it and having outbreaks and having issues along those lines so they could capitalize on that. I don't know if that'll be necessarily the case this year. Because it's not sixty games. It's one hundred and sixty two and teams like the marlins who were in the playoffs last year but barely made it in. I don't think that's going to happen. And i would say maybe a team that's on the outside looking in of the top ten worst teams that i just ran through. Being number eleven would be the reds. I'm kind of little skeptical of the reds right. Now i don't really know what to think of that and there are same kind of situation. They made the playoffs last year but by the skin of their teeth. And i don't think that's going to be the case this year. And even with the brewers as brewers fan quite frankly i mean it was embarrassing to see them go into the playoffs with a losing record. It just should not be acceptable. Should not be allowed at all and so as a result. I definitely think that there could be some of these teams that i just mentioned that maybe wind up making a little bit but for the most part. I don't think it's going to happen. I think that a lot of these teams are going to struggle. And they're going to really really struggle and as a result it's going to be a long season for some teams but as always folks..
