He's no fantasy focus baseball podcast here, your hosts Tristan cockroach and Eric era bell. It's true. This is fantasy focus baseball for Monday June ten thousand nineteen. He is indeed week winter Tristan. I am mover driver. Eric joining us today, the versatile kospi, perhaps a bit on edge about a certain basketball game tonight. As well as touro watchdog, Tom carpet, who sits quietly in the corner, editing judging on today's show and Astros prospect, gets the call a former Astros pitcher finds work more injuries Makamba meals, close a carousel later on mirrored hashbrowns everybody had a nice week interest in how you doing doing well, beautiful weekend, at least in the northeast it was, I think it was the most places. How about you? All's well, you might think we talked about this before the show. But we don't get the I wanna know though. It's this is the most important more than any of the news. Did you get some quality hammock time? I did. I did. I, I out the havoc for the about, you need to have some quality him time there. You know, I did. And you know what I did like Uniprix sheet this? So I, I sometimes I can't watch baseball team play because the announcers, just so terrible, including like my favorite player as a kid, who's just not a good announcer. And so, I listened to the radio, I put the radio on and all my hammock, and it's sunny and everything is well nice. And in the bullpen comes in and they lose but it was a day. So you came in and relief for your own team. I kind of know you might as well pitch for them and six now you don't do this, because your team has, like, twelve good, right, hand relievers and a former left us. Hey my team disconcerting week so we could we could rant on and on. About a team that's playing out their best players and still gonna win hundred games. That's not a good road trip period. I can't believe that people are talking about yesterday is there's a key win. No, come on. That was a bad road trip. It was, but it's you run the gave your team found a way to win that all to game. I team found a way to lose the game. I mean I can't say my teams make the playoffs Phillies, your team is making the playoffs. I don't think that your team is in any worse position to make the playoffs than minus my God. That's digital thing. That's divisional everything statement. And you know it I I think both teams are making it, but because the brain has picked up a starting pitcher just part of our news that we're getting to now does. Talking about the Astros prospect. I. So what I 'cause I don't think much thousands statistically. I'll be honest, like, we'll get to that. But you ought to have raise, I think, is a monster. Like if you said to me, your Alvarez, or like Illinois Jimenez, the rest of the season, I'd have to think about it and fled. Like you put all three of those American League sluggers now. I don't think Alvarez is going to get like pure it, where he only gets to three weeks. And then they demoted again, that's my new ver- for testing your being foolish, demoted after love it. Okay. That up on the fly, but I do think though, Alvarez could be like a fifteen Homer, guy in three months who got three hundred looks awesome. Yeah. And that's honest with you. I think that might be setting a low bar based on the slugging percentage, adding the miners, what was it over seven hundred. Well, I mean they're using the ridiculous baseball. Aaa two said that you have reser Ila, you'd have to think about it. We hit a couple of homers this weekend, like, flicking, the wrist looks like a future. Forty home. Run guy. I see where you're going with it. And there's reason. Optimism here. But there's always fantasy the need to pump the brakes, a little bit on the young prospects because a large number of them do struggle, and it's completely unpredictable. And Vlad had a really rough. I what was it ten games or so Vlad, ee Loy Alvarez? I can't believe average is not on our most added list that that's gotta be within I think it's the proximity to win. His call up was, this is the thing that grabs me about the Elvis, the timing for the call up is that this was, so obviously a super to move, and we don't see those these days, they're all about trying to gain that extra year of control. This was clearly a super two thing. So when you and I talked about Alvarez a month ago, and we're trying to determine whether he'd come up Tucker at nothing to do with forty man roster and to do it super to arbitration. And by the way, you can complain all you want about not you, particularly, but there's the rules. The players allowed these rules. That was in the bargaining. It'll be changing. It will be changing like change. They don't have to do that. They don't matter did not have to call him up two months ago. When he was ready. It's up to them. So, you know, complain all your one about the delay in Vlad. And, and this and Huron, being the moment, again, that could be for money reasons to this is this is a business. I don't care how much money owners have. This is a loud. So they're allowed anyway, you're have as I top fifty the rest of the year. You don't go that idea. I want to I'm saying that the realist here, you know, trying to trying to build a basic set of projection based on not just the tripling numbers and hitting friendly league says he's probably more likely to fall out of that group. I probably will rank them in my top fifty. I think there is reason to get on board. I, I'd have to think you too. I think he should be tough fifty outfitters. Let's talk briefly brave now signing after our last show, which is Thursday. We're a Monday Thursday show for as long as they let us, you know, not a big strike out guy, but going into National League should add some strikeouts, because the pitchers just don't make contact. I assume pitches in about a week, maybe. Two and he's not replacing anybody. You're already rostering, but kind of like his upside is the top fifty star the rest of the season. I don't think he is. I think he might be just based on who's in that forty five to fifty group. But I agree with you. That the at least his his past history, he doesn't miss Bazzi relies on ground balls and minimizing hard contact. That's something that's gonna play more to matchups than regular fantasy play. So, yeah, I'll throw fifty five the number. And I do think it's going to be two to three turns in the minors before he gets called up. Yeah. I would agree with that. I feel like this would be an opportunity. I the name game because people are excited about gyco. Maybe they shouldn't be. Yeah. Everybody wants to your name game highly holy Diddley do what of Dili of a pickle digitally. Do lead slander daily wall. The Dili of a pickle say, leisurely. Let the Elliott a pickle, the draw and kill the Bill the light to deliever pickle come to do whatever, you know, that's the kill your of a pickle, dilly, dally your way into another thing a name for you. I'm certain of staff row, stat dog stat kids hamster of sat white statal vicious. Mrs of Steph was wrong with you a little game of trash Christon here. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. All went bad. Are you singing that we're having an intervention? You know what it'd never fails to make me smile and laugh, and we all need more laughter in our lives. I believe I do you know, smiling, good thing, laughing's good thing. We need more hammocks. I was thinking about adding one of my yard yesterday. No one of my house in your way you have one in your home. My new house. It's outside. We're hammocks goer in your house catcher to the trees. Or is it a free standing free, standing room really have one in our backyards? I'd make for a tough hammock situation. Yeah. We zoo trees, the free standing, maybe you could care less. I don't know. Could I think it's? Yeah, I wasn't I look, we discuss this. That's the only thing we did discuss before, we didn't plan that out, the we get grammatical stuff I could care less. And I'm like, that's technically not what you mean does not making my top fifty. Let me I'm looking at your ranking silver, Andrew Heaney, and John lesser. You have fifty and fifty one no way. I would take over either them and lesser maybe trending in the wrong direction heating going up, but like they strike people out, and they have a track record and they're not learning a new league and no, but you agree. I agree. They do need to be behind those two there, their cases I can make for that Haney injuries. Lester, the decline in the second half last year, but he has put up some premium numbers, the other thing, too, is after this miss time, we do have to consider the possibility that kaikal is not his typical self. It did happen guys last season, more than considered that the J habits sixty one, I'd have them higher. I take over Kyko. Yeah. And Happel probably move into that range of LeicesteR, and Haney. And I agree that he should be head of all using left easier. Joe Casey, definitely I would take him. So I don't think he's going to be in your top sixty. Who else here's and have to be a lefty like sunny gray looked fine on Sunday. I was watching I was listening, he's pitching well, and somehow that read staff is just not giving up home runs. I would take gray. Chris archer? Still a strikeout guy said fatty, arraign whip on a good rank comp not stuff. They're completely different rating left. He case not case, but I think that, that's a good value based comp. Steven Steven Matt seventy six I would take maths over Quaco hundred thought a you know, we've talked Matt's Hutton, et, nausea on the show and you're saying that, but like mats and Pablo pays if he removed their one bad start. And I know you can't it all counts, but they've been fine this year. If you just remove the ten run games, I'm sorry in advance, I hate that approach. I do too. But it tells me look, you never have a bad day. Of course you do. I've seen your bad days. You've heard my bad day. Every Monday Thursday hear him. But the point is like they had a bad game was allowed ten runs in a game and massive and get out, get getting out against philli the rest of their seasons are erased like three even like that tells me okay that maybe they had a bellyache maybe they're argued with their wife. I don't know that they had a bad game. I am bad days and my performance reflects it. I'll give you three guys on that. I know I put them ahead of. Okay. Let's hear that. All right. As I blank. Marcus Stroman are yes. Sure strong. Pretty decent year but he seventy nine that's not even like someone. You have to roster. They're, they're people like Stroman. Apparently, I'm not one of them report Selo, and Frankie. Mantell. Frankie month as can everybody out. Why don't you like? Well, there's two reasons. One is the fact that the, of the best schedule for pitchers coming up in the other is that he's going to face innings cap and that's gonna find another question. I'm very shocked that people aren't talking about this Kevin Guzman's been anointed the guy bumped from the rotation. Why good? Why terrible? I get it now. But does this signing not signal to you that the Mike sarokin max, freed innings caps are going to play a part? Yes. I do think Mike sarokin on the Chris paddock timetable. I will give you that Rocha's probably not pitching. But if they're in first place in September, and I think they might be like, how can you not like saroka just getting a deal stint any day right off around the all star break? They'll be funny business. That's my they'll be funny business. But, like, I'd really have the funny business around paddock and saroka that Kevin gauze Missouri is six fifteen. They should Pavetti him and put him in the minors for month. Sure. Like maybe that'll visit maybe that'll fix. I do think is good stuff at times. He can. Give you productive month or two and more to a major league team into a fantasy team. But I do think that this signals the Braves are going to that. Let's shuffling around like the Padres have been doing. Sure fantasy focus baseball where we make players name verbs. They're gonna prevent him. There's only one person it's five cast. It's done that so far. We've made names, adjectives, I've done that you choose choose. Now, we are going to read something from seatgeek.

It's just a couple of weeks ago to meet me at a baseball game, and then he ate a Turkey. What was it called a big Turkey stiff wing thing, you know? Anyway, it was very good.

That's promo code F E for ten dollars off your first purchase. Why is the name escapes me like Turkey had clearly a deep fried Turkey, had a big Turkey wing? What is it called? It was a Turkey fried Oreo. Okay. Karen. Cavs cell. Way Davis is back. So Scott Goldberg is really good. Is now a setup man. Way Davis is fine. I don't have my top ten closers, pretty close. You know, getting thirty saves if he stays healthy. Look Jackson blew the yesterday. But there's no sign anyone else in Atlanta's bullpen getting save and they're not getting Kimble. Now, I think Jackson saving thirty thirty games a season. Tristen does not. You don't have, you know, I could get on board with import after three days, the last time we talked about what was on board. So I do you're on board on Thursday. We play that back. I think you were like he's bad. He's gonna lose the job to I don't know Kevin Gaza. The problem is I do think to Tucson has the stuff to overtake him. I prefer, I prefer his Ross stuff too. And by the way, that's not who they're using as setup guy. They're using nukem Anthony sports act primarily. There isn't competition right now. Greg Holland has run saving five weeks. That's just unbelievable to me. And it's not like he lost the job. They're setup core is particularly problematic. And this is the most unluckiest thing you can have a Jit closer. It's working for your for your team. And it's not working for the Diamondbacks. Now granted little different. Overall structure taking the bullpen out of the equation, but still gonna remind team. I have them in several leagues. And I feel like I made a good call. He's back. He's of bridge is what I mean. Your complete lack of bridge, and they have complete like a bridge. I can't I benched in wherever I could one save and five weeks three the other one, by the way, who's getting surprisingly chances Felipe Vasquez. Yes. Similar reasons. Kennedy's bad Baltimore's bad. But like zone is a five hundred team Pittsburgh's same thing. This is ridiculous like a weird season for closer, first of all, very, very little turnover. All right. So, like I have a league in which I need to have to relief pitcher spots. And I- Greg Holland in one of them, and he's doing nothing. I might as well use Matt Barnes, or, or a good setup man once say, invive weeks and finally this week, I've just put starting pitchers in my release spots. Martine Peres's in there. I can't remember what the other guy is. I'm like, I'm tired of this. I lose saves literally every week because of Holland and the second spot has been like a Boston reliever at times Tampa Bay reliever times Leclerc who I drafted. It's I'm tired of deal with this, this too many teams. It's a third of the league Tristan. It's not getting saved chances for their guys. And the other is that in including some of the third, you mentioned almost a half is doing some sort of closer by committee approach. I think this should be a Combi you this well have to take a look at this because now the last compare this the recent seasons. A third teams are just not giving their closer save chances. I will. Yeah. I notice it's myself because I was trying to make the anti-oil 's comment in the closer chart today. And I couldn't do it because the Orioles were not down at the very bottom in terms of generating overall team chances the season which I found very odd. You'll look at their total number of saves down near the bottom, but not the opportunities in the ninth innings of the traditional ones. I would bet the listeners of the show would dispute that there's been a lot of turnover though. But I think you're right. Because at the top tier. They've been pretty rock-solid. They have kimbrel investors might be disappointed because they're not giving a lot of chances to their clothes. I think they will. I think that's going to correct itself a little bit. But I see what I see your point. Yeah. All right. There's two pencil and ask you about quickly. Yes, I want to ask you about the Marlins. And I wanna ask you about the Mariners what to do with those two. You know you could say that surge aroma lost the role yesterday getting getting pounded for four runs in the ninth inning. But I don't see who they're going to give it to. And I don't see Romo getting traded because nobody's dumb enough to trade for Sergio Romo so he's gonna get fifteen more saints. He's gonna end up with more than twenty six I think, and I agree that I don't think that this is an imminent change. But he hasn't pitched all that effectively lately. And if the Marlins are pressed into making a change over the next week or two based on more poor performance, Nick Anderson has become an interesting pitcher. I guess he has. But like I don't agree with your point. He just got let Sunday he wasn't pitching poorly. He had a good may sort of Jerome. He didn't. He had an alright may he did not have great may good enough for the team with five games. And that's why I think they're going to keep them in there. I think that there's too much is being made that he's lost the job based on that one game. I don't agree with that notion. But which, well as a lot of talk about hundred stricken coming back and getting the role, but who cares like Elliot's has gotten so few safe chances because the? Loses three out of every four games. Now, like I one of you hundred on the way I do like Michael Gibbons, Baltimore just or Kansas City's in Kennedy's clearly, they're closer but he's getting to save chances a month. Like what's the point dealing with these teams teams there's a lot of buzz about trying to add Strickland? I think this is the desperation angle for safe. So you're throwing away a lot of your fat because he has an injury history history of inconsistency. No save chances for the Mariners this entire month. Yeah. That's not a fluke. They're bad. Let's do the combo meals are good. Christian yelich on Thursday, man that MVP race between yelich and Cody Bellinger is going to be kind of interesting like their vote just having months or seasons. Friday, was Josh Redican Fernandez junior. Now I would've lost my vampire league match up five five if I had been allowed to activate to tease on Monday from the injured list and put them in my lineup for here. I wanna loss five ended up losing, six four, but man that angers me and I tried to active Nelson Cruz a league and I was like a minute late. Because what was the move was? You're getting demoted like men. I and I lost that league six four. It would've been if I five tie which would have mattered there. Anyway. It's on me too. There was. No, I remember you and I were texting about this, because this may with a believe it was a different player in another league, the inability to activate it, and that's the rules of the in the well is in some cases, there's some leagues worth five minutes. It's not like to the minute of the game. If the game starts four zero five lakhs of four o'clock, I write Riley lacking first day first game not of your team not like of the whole league. But, but even in that situation there was nothing you could do with the hero activation. So then the question becomes, do you allow players on the teams that aren't playing at that time in the first game do you allow them to know? There's the weekly versus daily debate as well for weekly because it's less work, and I'm not twenty five anymore, but I don't wanna be up at midnight picnic players and, you know, I like you and I have an no league I knew a couple of days in advance, sometimes, you know, if that means I miss out JD Martinez mistakes tire weekend, if I miss out on that then so be it. But, like I tried to get him out for the double. Header when I figured out he was he was out. I couldn't but the guy was going to put into nothing although we in Desmond finally stores first base, so. Brief economies any interest here is the V active in all leagues cost anything there. I love that you're just declared Taty must start. He has to be, of course. You don't agree. No, I I'm on board. I've just a little surprised that it's so automatic. Well, I don't know why I mean he's good. I'm with I think that the Padres are very different offense with him as their leadoff man. They've been using Greg Garcia, and I want the guy who can go deep. I'm not gonna take walks. I want, I want the guy who can go. I'm leading off is just ridiculous managers are still making some of the most idiotic moves have ever seen their bullpens with their lineups with their way Rosser. Maybe that's a GM but, you know, guys at ninety five pitches. He has to come out of the game for the next after the next batter. Why some pitchers go one ten some interest only go ninety every different wise one hundred pitches half to be when the bear comes out and removed from a game. And you're in a week where we had an awful lot of complete games. And by the way, I'm watching that Yanni cheer knows game against the Red Sox where he went eight deep. Wow. I love that. But, like there were couple managers, let their pitchers go to, like, I think one hundred fifteen pitches like Jason Vargas. Girl hundred fifteen bitches it could probably through one hundred forty it'd be fine for his next outing. But Brad peacock can't so, like every pitcher different. So the way Aaron knows removed from Sunday's game look, if they don't win that division. It's a new manager next year. I'm just saying like the pitch can't argument, okay? I understand protecting your pitchers, and one hundred pitchers as what we've just asylum because. It's a nice round number but for air. No, it might be one hundred seven or maybe ninety seven I don't know. I just stuff too. Yeah. Why chair knows because I love the Chico. I like he's the guy cheer. No some Morton Perez of the to relief pitcher starting pitcher eligible I have in my lineup and league. And I fall into place in that league for some reason, mainly because of Matt carpenter and half my offense doesn't hit, and then also because I blow saves every week anyway. But on start bulk is, is what I'm talking you win, vampire. No slaughtered. I, I ended up losing six Forbes closed, but like the guy didn't have a starting pitcher. And he didn't understand why I didn't have relievers active. And my thought was why would I'm gonna lose saves anyway? And actually did win whip. I add all starting pitchers, and he had zero and I one whip so there you go. Didn't help any what do I was talking about before. Oh my blog today. It's a bit of a Downer, but like Giovanna is on pace for thirty five RBI. I love this topic. You know what that's is saddest number that makes me sad because I would win. I think the league where I have oughta win if I just had a normal hit, or even last year's auto, if I'd last year's motto, I'd be up fifteen points in this league, but I really can't believe he got worse, and they're going to be people out there say at his age, you should have no thirty five arm. The I come on too long for the last year really down one hundred points. He's he he's, he's choking up on the bat. Like he's Larry Bowa from eighteen seventy five or Chris Spier, Tim Foli, these little shortstops, you couldn't hit Chris Speyrer. I mean, it's I anyway, so anyway, I picked out other other numbers per for hitters. That's sad me like either, most of because I'm relying on this player and they're not doing what I thought they would. I thought body go twenty eighty he's gonna go ten thirty five. The end. Desmond finally stole base on Sunday or Saturday against math and only because it was on a three two pitch and Brennan. Roger struck out. Only reason, Desmond finally, first base the season there's some unbelievable numbers. I don't wanna give them away because column like Jeff McNeil like east, like eight basis last year and a third of the season I thought he's gonna steal twelve to fifteen. He's over four Jose Ramirez, the fantasy boss of the year. But if you add his home runs steals and runs last year he had one hundred eighty three of them in a hundred fifty seven games. You know what those numbers at two right now? Oh boy. It's barely went bottles. Paces for our anyway. I don't want to give away the Jose Ramirez, look at you wanna drop Jose Ramirez. I like I wouldn't. Because at least it's gonna steal twenty thirty basis. But if you wanna drop vodka when a mixed league p my guest, honestly, I need a lot of guys, the pickup for Joey Votto. It's what, what are you getting for them? How we kind of his coming off the power and candy, Rick Howard Kenner CRA, Joey Votto on advocating, okay, but, but I'm going back to your Ramirez comment. I mean it's very different between Votto, that's a little different. All right. What are we doing? Now are we gotta talk about the schedule for the next couple of days because otherwise who will in today's scheduled everything's at night, ESPN plus tenor? Anderson of Oakland real sure who that is against Charlie Morton. Jason is pitcher you wouldn't use Jason Vargas at Yankee Stadium, but he has pitched well for those in all these, I'm just saying, watch out for the weather in New York, and Philadelphia and Boston, it is raining. Sandy out can tear. At home against Saint Louis to start week tried to Adam in tout mixed. I got outbid because I'm cheap bit in numbers there. But sandy Qatar, it's not a lot of strikeouts. That's the thing. I get like there's a difference between him and Pablo Lopez al-qatar does restrict anybody out? Cow's note about where he decides to pick and choose the starts. He wants to the last three starts not against the national twenty two innings nine it's one earned run my job, professional number under over here. You know what though he was on my list of the to start values out there and a lot of leagues. So, yeah. Yeah. I would agree with that. Also decent chance at the W here because he's facing Walker and Saint Louis with their rotation in the state that it's in with the injuries. You know they're struggling a bit. They're asking too much of their bullpen Tuesday on ESPN plus Trevor Howard home against the other team now Bowers e array of a past like month or so over four he's walking people like sometimes like I look at a player, and I said, I've got a trade that guy way now because then a week it will be too late, but we look at that for Bauer. I feel like if you were going to trade him and reap the rewards of where he was being valued in the preseason or early may say you're already behind the curve. I'm gonna stick with our Bauer versus James Paxson rest of the season. Barrier. I worried the packs another deals or I'll stint at some point packs, and faces that we learn ESPN on Tuesday, anything else of interest on Tuesday, still bunch of undecideds. To navigate you still deal with that Juncker. No. Like if you had him in a mix you still having him. He had a game or two. They're one of the ones I watched. He was pretty decent. Which one was the cardinals game had pretty good command in that game. But otherwise it's been a mess. That's another guy who I'm probably ranking the same ballpark, as Keiko, which means I'm lukewarm two star for Peter Lambert, the Colorado rookie look great Wrigley field now. It's a rematch at cores I did not bid on him and he went he went for only a dollar an NL labor, and I'm a little embarrassed. I don't have any room for him. I have anybody to drop for I would've made a trade with you this week for LeicesteR but Lambert, like, are you buying? Here's this guy who's going to be safe or is that just is debut was good. I think just as debut was good, and that might have been partially the product. I mean, a lot of the debut or have have kind of an advantage there. The other is just the scouting report, but lack of knowledge but two cores games. I really don't want any part, he's got cups, who's the second one. The second one is the Padres, which is good matchup. Why though that's probably the price to pay what price to play in labor because you have to lock the player in for the long haul Turkey leg. That's what I was looking for what you are serious about that. I just forgot. What it was called guy. Like I think something wrong. I might be concussed. No, I'm serious. Like I couldn't remember what that word was. I'm forgetting words all the time. I wanna call Kyle cell before the show. And I can't remember that this fried cookies reshare talk. Like I can't remember Sunday. That's the word you were condescending if I have to come up with the word for which I was, and I'm no longer. Wednesday, briefly pianist brand Woodruff is a big strike out guy like there's cleven jer cops here for the strikeouts. And like a high Eric from like two or three years ago has that for a cop on Woodruff. I like that was it. I think it was twenty sixteen. He led all of minor league baseball in case. So, yeah, it's, it's not like this brand new. Yeah, he gives stuff up, but he's it's not some more like either. But like that's a lot of strikeouts. Brennan, I don't think people realize how many he's at Houston against Burland hate that they meant him up to that matchup your want, and I actually would have hitting because he's a really good hitter. Do you know what do you know what happened here when they switched him they took him out of AT and T park and dropped them into mid park against the Astros. Well that that's bad. I mean you can't well, you can ask for more but yeah, at cores cow, Cointreau, San Fran, you want that I have Cointreau in labor and hoping for good stuff there. I know he's going back to the monitors in a week or whatever the one last thing. Wanted to make for you. This is based on wins Spencer Turnbull and Madison. Bumgarner based on wins. You realize bunglers three wins and turned doesn't win at all because the trait but look at their other numbers like I almost traded Bumgarner in that league. And I was getting something I needed power but he's not winning ten games unless he gets traded. Bumgarner had more complaints about theoretical black wins yesterday. You lease it in throwing them. I thought for sure. Next time he's going to throw it. I've watched that replay four times. And I'm like, well he's not. But where was the bad flip or the taking your time, don't know why you're getting mad at don't give up a home or into it's not the over the months. The Hornets is great. But look the winning I cared about their is don't hit him with a pitch the next time up any each other next week. That's what it was gonna go now next week in LA. I hope not get suspended. I hope not with these throw a baseball a projectile ninety miles per hour and Twitter lit up with, like what's wrong with me? Like when I said that, really what's wrong with me? You want somebody throwing at your head. How can I just? I don't get it. When you go deep off Iranian, by the way, I was happy to see that. Yeah. He deserved that, that, that annoyed. That was I remember last year, actually was. AJ show. And I remember I was ranting dust. And like the Mets pitcher gave up a couple of homers. And then through at the next guy Desmond doing that after tenure Murphy. How did you not get suspended for that suspension? Twenty games. I just don't get it. So he's going to get hurt. Anyway, up next has Ron's nobody gets hurt. There are you big fed up with clothes that don't fit. Here's a tip head to d- XL, anyone can make a bigger shirt, but DSL makes closed that actually fit. It's all they do want to know their secret. Okay. They've spent years developing their own sizing patterns to make sure it's a comfortable fit every time and every size and good luck finding that anywhere else. So head to excel dot com and check out a store near you. Excel big and tall built for you DSL dot com. You better not throw at me. I couldn't throw fast enough to hurt you just like Twitter like the worst place. But like how are people? It's the worst like they just they. What that it's okay to throw it hitters like push back off the plate. Don't him the head, but like hit him in the back or in there. But, like no baseball going ninety five miles per hour. You can't do that not to mention you're hitting somebody for doing their job. Well. I just don't get that next month by the way home enough. A lefty having another amazing season mazing but pretty good. Yeah. Like almost crying named Brett regression to last year. And he's still the same player, which Sommese like nobody even knew who next month. He was a year ago, but he wasn't like some prospectors rookie basically flamed out, like, who is this year's months that just came from nowhere like to put up HAMAs, Stella? All right. That's that'll work. Very similar circumstance too. And by the way, a city that I hear is pretty close to months. I think yes, the same, that's what it was. I got you're gonna make fun of me now. Very nice. Crossed. I'll buy Turkey like I don't want it. All right. Baseball game. I'm like, oh my God. Like, what are you? The, the bulls one was better. That was the Philly. We'll go to a game. Okay. Not today. No. It's going to rain, a list, Stella is a good convert last year's Muncie. Although actually, although those gonna hit twenty five home runs member a month ago and he thought thought I was crazy. He's gonna hit twenty five home runs. The metrics didn't support it and they still don't put. He's doing it and all I can go back to is that, that ballpark by lowering the line in right field has made a huge difference. Reassess your metrics tristen because people who just hit fly balls like that. And don't hit grounders and know which pitchers swing like yellow is doing yell at stall, high Graham ball rate, but he also hitting home runs his home run a fly ball should not be sustainable, but I think at this point, we can say it is I don't think Homer to fly ball rate is sustainable over on. Although not at those levels yelled agree with drive home runs. You only yell at forty five home runs a year. Well, I mean, considering how many as in the tank already this is the thing for me. It's all about what comes I don't care about. Okay. So, so you don't think yellow has another eight homerun month or several of them? I think he does have another. He's probably going to get to your number. I don't think that's absurd. I think that looking at a sixty Homer season is getting absurd. I have a FOX at my window, what the heck is going on. Fox a FOX just walked up to my window of my office. Looking at you guys. Looking at each other's guy. Contact for like a split second. I don't know. Is that a jinx I can't be good? The doorbell thing didn't go off. Shocks not at my front door. Mr. go to the front door. I want to hear the answer the door during this joke. Wow. All right. I can tell them we're wasting time what questions. I'm good like that. Wants you to compare contrast de condescending. That's clearly showing off because you know the word now. Want you to compare and contrast DD with two TS thrust of the year. Ooh, wow. That's a peeling. Wow. They both need to be rostered in every league. They do. I'm surprised not more popular, I just have the playing aren't paying attention, but DVD's gonna hit fifteen home runs in the second half of the season. And teast is going to be even better and it's still basis and score runs leading off. I would say, t's because of the basis, but I probably if I thought was playing the entire season ranked them in the fifth or sixth round. Now I would have to a head about. Ahead of the fifth or sixth. Yeah. The Steelers in next year's draft for nets going before the fifth round is. Yeah. Why so saddened by that he's no? It's, it's shortstop is just such an awesome position that I'm thinking about where he'd rank among the shortstop care about that. I'm telling you take into Korea. I loved to tease, okay? Career missing his thirty games a year doesn't feel any bases. Bregman immediately Zander, Bogart's comes to mind versus to be close for me. Right. And that's and Bogart's is probably going to get a third fourth round ranking, so not by me, I would say more you're putting them probably v. I probably had them this. He doesn't still basis, and you never know where he's gonna hit the lineup but, but Bogart's because he doesn't steal basis brings this back to DD versus not. I agree with you just because of the steals, and because Tateishi is probably gonna steal, what twelve to fifteen more basis, you d versus Bogart's is a pretty decent. Comparison I love DD swing for Yankee Stadium. He's from that Curtis Granderson school of, let's try to go for pole power. Put the ball in more home runs the rest of the season. Dear bogart's. I, I agree. And bogus rostered never league. So why should D DD will probably be competitive for the home run lead at the position? I agree. I love and he's gonna play every day. They're not sitting him once or twice a week to rest them. Right. So. Well, they might initially but I think after the all-star break, he's locked in guy, they meet key Anki here key, there in first place out, everybody. We'll give me key. He's a key Yankee. I think man DD over Bogart's. I didn't think we'd get there but we just got. But see this is the thing center Bogart's batting average. I think it's a little more locked in the DVD's that, that does make up a good amount of the difference. Head. Ahead. I think it's close actually. And by the way, has only number nine among shortstop season player, Aitor house. He fish. Fish man Martinez. Thirty five. Home runs number ten Swanson do hit thirty five minutes. Number eleven batting averages steals play way too much of a role like in this player. But okay, what's next chip wants to know how you're projecting Victor row bliss and keeper leagues. What is his overall ceiling? A lot of people unhappy with victory want to drop them. And, you know, I thought as numbers we're little bit different like is batting average is lower than I expected. And I don't know why does steal more basis. But he's still like even if this is an old Ian Desmond season. Like he's got nine homers and nine steals after sixty two games he's gonna go twenty twenty he made that only fifty doing it and but he's also scored a bunch of runs, like he could end up with eighty runs scored and at twenty twenty season. Batting two fifty that's better than what was going to do this year, I think robots is a top forty outfielder and fantasy. I would not drop him. That's too many as too much power and speed. I'm disappointed in his approach at the plate. I thought he'd walk more. That's not a good. Walk rain at all. It's got to be like five percent. I thought it'd be closer to ten percent is twenty seven percent. He's only gonna get better. I'm telling you victory was a future star and fantasy at some point in his future. And it's obviously not this year is twenty five forty guy who best to seventy five I love Rover, Laura Bush, but I would not drop them this year. I'd agree. I think there's a lot of, of Dennis potential in him. But the metrics, especially the stat cash ones don't create a mile to answer the people who wanna know why dentistry, a Nario is ridiculous things. I think it's partly because game of thrones. I wanna talk like they do. That's all trying to be cute. I'm not trying to be kind of sending like our producer here. I'm just saying the record. I wasn't the condescending one. How would they say condescending on that show? Can the sending condensing capacity I can do? His his K rates nearly double odors, and AAA robos. Yeah. Oh, double. He looks overwhelms. He know what he's looking like this is not a good cop because the other guy didn't hit for power or run. He the last couple of weeks. He's looked to me, like Kingery did last year where these aren't even competitive at bats. Right. And Kingery just went on for four months like that. I hope doesn't do that. Every game is over four two strikeouts. I think he could be awesome. I think he's going to turn it around really soon. I like the combo you're going because that reminds about the lengthy adjustment that some prospects take the majors. But that the raw talent is putting forth useful fantasy numbers right now. And it wasn't for Kingery speaks volumes about as long-term talent and carries a twenty twenty two although they don't run enough from steel twenty but they're getting creative. I like I like that. They're using a more always day center fielder. Who are you gonna play there? They have to play center field. But like Roma Quinn. Going to come back soon, and Haley's not that he'll be back in a couple of weeks. I, I would leave Kingery loan. The problem is Michael Franco, is just after the first couple of weeks. He's done. He's done. But, but at least then, you know, you have the safety net of dropping him into third base everyday if you had to write I would like to see hey, you know, Hayes Lee is Hayes Lee is a guy. He's cakes he would hit two eighty every year with twelve home runs and seventy five ribs. If you just left him alone, about six, or seven out of as a nice left handed swing he hit the opposite field. He's not going to strike out a ton. The walk a little, I think, as the next more cakes. How about that comp? I like that in on base percentage comp. He's not going to twenty runs doesn't still basis. But I'm a scale of one to ten how proud of you that comp. More proud than Moby. See that you figured out your way, but I do think I'm good cop car very good. Very few strengths in this show. But one of them I'm just saying thrown language, you're up there here up there. You know what you shouldn't hate any way you do. I'm just saying like. Getting obvious here. You don't even be so obvious.

And everybody's rainbows and unicorn Rosen unicorns, I got everything I need right here. I'm happy here. Trysted. I'm already he's been a little negative today. On it. I don't know if you know. Basketball game. He's somebody's never been Toronto before. But he's a raptor. A little too wrapped up in his final right now. Yeah. Fine college. Or study time we got a game seven in hockey on Wednesday. Nothing better than game seven any sport. That'd be the first hockey game. I watch this year, but I will tune in for every, so I watched last night. I loved it. I, I wanted to say was to win. Boston's one enough things get the blues have never one is up game sevens. Awesome. Unbelievable. I wanna see one in basketball too. I don't know. See I wanna see that push because I'd be crazy Toronto game seven I'd like it. There was a game. Seven ended very well. You don't there that takes that shot one hundred times it goes in what ten less than one. Came in less than one went in once I'm saying it's under one percent chance, still, you still make it once in a while. Whatever. Two more questions here other than who you want to win tonight. We got Greg. He's in shallow keeper league wants stand Earl two long term. Wow. To it should have been back like two weeks ago when I was in Houston. He was like data day for coming off the injured list and settled for an injury and Stanton Stanton, plus judge is one of my sad stats of the season. Their games played in home runs combined the same meta home runs as vodka and vodka has half the homeroom teacher that I younger. Stanton Earl two. They probably stand. No. That's probably too. You are good six months, roughly six months. I'll take out to a would you? Yeah. People seem to forget that before last year. Stand couldn't stay healthy someone whose fault, somebody threw Adam, but I. To in the future is probably stealing twenty bases the year, but I still feel like to for the rest of the season given three months he would bat three ten with some power. Maybe not run. I do worry a bit about what the injuries have done well to over the last year and a half, but I think that his skill set is less likely to steeply downturn. I think Stanton's got the danger of that, not imminent, but. For stanton. Don't you think it's gonna fall off a cliff? Yeah. He's not going to age Nelson Cruz. He's gonna aids like Miguel Cabrera pools. And you know it boy, the except for longer home runs, but, like he has a season in his future, where he plays like one hundred ten games, and doesn't get on base, but he might thirty homers. I would I don't think he's a good keeper at all. I don't either as a good keeper to be honest. I still think they've got a decent amount of time to contribute to, but, you know, for the season like they don't even need judge or Stanton or Severino until, like August that the visit, I know raise fans Red Sox fans, I the Enke's are a playoff team. And I think they can win the division with what they have. And if you're them, like I don't why wouldn't rush anybody back? I'm almost surprised came back soon. DVD's been pushing a comeback for a month, now, I'm surprised wasn't just sat for three months to see if his arm felt better July. They wanted to do that. And I'm not sure quite why they brought him back when they did. I know dis dis been felt like he could come back a month ago. He was even saying they interviews. Pre-game. Detail a mayor's doing this out, of course he showed no interest in doing like this on road games, and now look at them, it's also a good park from but yeah, you'd think the skill set doesn't play the Anki stadium which really amps up the power and that's not as game anyway. I think the woman who does regress pretty noticeably. Okay. That's, that's not positive. And what else we got last one here Marcus is the price of the lack of downgrading as he LB's in the ranks this year. Can't hit right? Handed pitching can you explain why he why you are still confident obi's? He's not that good. He's not that good. And even a Swanson wasn't doing this. They would have had moved more cakes and number two, they can't that is the second lineup because he's not that good. A lot of the power last came in the first one month or two and second half is terrible. And he's not even stealing basis, which is a voluntary act. You know, like I watch Albee's playing like he just gives away. So many advance, he's not a strikeout guy. He's walking fine. He's not batting eighth so it's a legit walk rate like I'm surprised he's not doing more. But you're right wrote that like he's an automatic against Rhianna pitching. Yeah. The split is a real problem. So terrible. I'm trying to dig up his past calendar year numbers because I remember it was about wasn't about now where he started cooling down. Yeah. Mean it was like a month or six weeks and sixty to sixty seven three nine thousand four nineteen. Okay. So we call it a little later than this last year. I should read a blog on just like over the past calendar year. Look, some of these numbers, you wouldn't believe like people overrate players Albee's is one of the ten players being most overrated because of what he started out at last year. I look at his numbers over the past one, sixty two he's shouldn't even be rostered in mixed league. I and I gave him more regression than the average in my ranks in the preseason and it wasn't enough. So this a good question, and I will address this in my ranks next time, I'm not calling you out. I'm just saying. Like people look at him and say, oh, I have to have him, he's my starting second baseman, and you're disappointed by the numbers, but maybe it shouldn't be. And this is like, obviously, Jose Ramirez is a different plane here. Okay. But what he did in the final two months last season. Nope. Took seriously. I wish I hadn't ranked them in my first round. I'm not sure I rank top five but like I really wish I'd taken. This is numbers for the final two months. More serious. I thought maybe risked hurt he'll be fine. This year, the parents Peter legit. Everything looked legit last year for Jose Ramirez and next year. He's going around Ted. And there were people who saw this and did downgrade. I'm in the industry, and I'm sorry, that I don't remember the specifics. I wish I in a more they something well done that, that happens. I think Albee's is a decent baseball player here. I don't think he can turn this around. Yeah, but what's, what's this ceiling now? See, I felt like Albee's was of fifteen home or at best kind of guy, and my hope was he could get back up to twenty steals and give you a good on base percentage. I know beyond that, I mean, this is a game of adjustments pitchers adjusted the him, and he has an adjusted back Danes Swanson justed after a terrible two seasons really at the plate. And he's a smart number two hitter. Anyway. That is all on. Mondays baseball tonight, podcast BUSTER, and Tim, Kirk Jin discussed the latest with David Ortiz. The war of words between Muncie and Madison Bumgarner on a whole lot more. Find the show wherever you get your podcast and we do hope that big Papi gets better after terrible. Incidents. Anyway. Good luck to David Ortiz. I'm sure he'll be okay. It sounds like he's going to be okay. Any final thoughts from uterus off? I'll give you a geeky stat if you like really. Yeah. Thank you. You like. X WNBA. Yeah. For people who aren't familiar with this expected wall by this is what these data does to tell you what they should have been expected to do based on the quality of contacting where they hit fecta bliss to eighty seven in this category. That is two hundred and fiftieth place out of three hundred eighteen and, you know, he's only five points better than joy vodka. I'll look we're auto as well. Your favorite, Greg Garcia, Joey Votto is at three eighteen. Awful twenty one points ahead of awful awful, get-well-soon Matana. We're not going to discuss any more on that are done for today's show. Thank you so much for listening. And I think we'll be back on Thursday, and hopefully Kyle and a little bit of a better mood and not so full of hate and condescension. But we'll see. We'll see what happens. That's offer today for Tommy for Kyle for tristen America have an awesome day. Darkness.

Coming up next
