Yankees, Oakland, Miami Marlins discussed on GSMC Baseball Podcast
Don't again I know I keep saying whatever it might be there something in the water I, don't know. If it's something that they're eating I have no idea but they're playing with an attitude of, Hey, we don't have a whole lot to lose and you know what? They really don't. Because when you think about it, they're young team they don't have a ton of star power. He's Zeigler has been a really big bright spot for them this year though And it's you know it's interesting to watch teams like the MARLINS kind of come out of nowhere you know and and that's I think what the beauty of baseball is that you have teams like the Marlins that. You know seemingly seem You know knock threatening. They don't really seem that they're not a glamorous looking team like the Yankees or the dodgers, but they're getting done and I that they're proving a lot of people wrong and they've they've added some pretty good players in the season like I mentioned Agla was a big pickup for instance, goes for Valley I know he's getting old but again, it's that veteran leadership that they're always looking for and I think that if you know if they continue to build, they continue to improve Brian Anderson he's a he's a he's a good bright spot for them. Also, he's only getting to forty five. This year but four homers, fourteen RBI's eight, ninety three. So pretty solid power numbers of him has not been hitting the last seven games. The only batting one, ninety, two from the plate with four, twenty, three slugging percentage. So his power numbers are down a little bit but don't let that fool you again, there's a lot of time left to play in the season I know that we're just about the halfway point still we have thirty or so games left in the season to to go on very freeman did not hit well, the plate one for four Marcello sooner only went one for three A. Little, bit of a struggle for Atlanta. But they were still able to come out on top getting that one run in the ninth top ninth inning. That was really the difference maker go ahead Run for them to come out on top over the Miami Marlins so good one for the braves. And the next game Tampa Bay and and Toronto That's actually a game that got suspended through four innings because of rain. So they're going to have to make that up on the raise out ahead of the Blue Jays. One nothing. And you know again. When you factor in the pandemic and then sometimes you do have mother nature coming in and doing her thing. Now you've got yourself you know an even bigger twisty because now you have even more games aren't going to have to be cancelled in going to have to make up more games But again, it's not that many. It's only one it a rain delay or was a rain out. So not a huge deal but again, one nothing right now in that one to bottom four game. So you know it probably be picked up eventually not quite a win, but I'm sure that will be resumed at. Some point or another next game athletics giants another you know West Division or a West west coast rivalry between the as and the giants at athletics continuing to dominate coming out on top fifty or seventy six, they moved to fifteen in six on the year giants continue to struggle though they're eight and fourteen and Oakland really did a nice job at sporting out their offense. They usually do you know to runs in the third a run in the six and then four runs in the ninth and San Francisco I mean they put up three runs both the fourth and the seventh? So there they they were. Up On top of the Oakland going into that ninth inning six to three and they blew the lead and they gave up four runs in the ninth. So I mean that's that's a really good sign. If you're Oakland not only are you dominating to start games are also able to put yourself out of holds that you might dig yourself and that is that there's nothing better than you. You know your back's against the wall you're going into the ninth inning and you've got three outs to do whatever you possibly can, and you're able to come out on top and you put up not only one runner to. Runs. But you put up four runs in that ninth inning. That's very hard to do you know usually at that point in the game, you're not seeing big four or five spots in endings and especially in that ninth ending. So good stuff out of the Oakland A.'s no question Mike? Scrim ski having you know another big day had himself a homerun he's hitting well for the giants he's really been a very promising player for them and really kind of I don't want to see the focal point because you know Donovan Solano has also been a a big piece for them but don't count out Mike's Krimsky. Of Pop in his Bat, he's twenty nine. He did come up a little bit later in his career. But sometimes when guys get called up later on in their career, they might wind up playing further into their thirties because they've got a little bit more experience the they've got a little bit more Like I said you know. Experience. But wherewithal end just kind of awareness as a player and a lot more smarts as as an athlete as well. Somebody that has been season's been around the block, a couple of times and being able to have somebody like that. That's always a great great thing. Especially for this giants team that does have a lot of young guys on their team for the most part. So Solano and you give really been holding down for San Francisco. But they're gonNA obviously need a little bit more help you know they can't just do it to people So seventy six in that final. Oakland. Continuing to dominate this year next one. Really the greatest rivalry in baseball opinion yankees red. SOx. Yankees. Coming out on top eleven to five and this was a nice back and forth game Yankees scored to the bottom of the first. Boston scored three in the top thirty Yankees answered with two in the bottom of the fourth and they put up seven runs between the sixth and seventh inning four in the bottom six three in the bottom seven..
