"Right. Or when they have good ballparks, right? I mean Matt Olsen Ivy met Olsen similar. Let me pull up the names here and say who I say, like, like I recommended him in a Thursday, free agent blog recently and said, well, he could do pretty much what this guy can do CJ krone Vogel Bach or. Yandi D as crystal Walker. They're all kind of similar just kind of depends on the schedule, you can stream first base, if you want to actually. Iheart Matt Olsen. This is this is Adam Dunn's prime. I think coming, I think that's what the career is gonna look like more or less value now than it did. When Adam Dunn was doing less. But, but remember that in the especially the sabre metrically inclined leagues in the points leaks. Adam Adam Dunn the last player to be leading the league in home runs to get traded at that time. Wow. That, okay. Now, Edwin is next. Add winner prime done who has more value done winning traded. What's amazing about Edwin like he's obviously not gonna win a batting title base. But in home runs, RBI and runs scored. He's on pace to shatter all his career highs. And I don't see that stopping. He's never scored one hundred runs before and even be about six or seven for the Yankees. Like look who's batting behind him like other teams, cleanup hitters tours indeedy like oh, how many teams with DD touristy batting third and fourth about an eighth and ninth now for the aunties next week? And I argue watching him he hasn't had all that extraordinary season. I haven't been that wowed by what he's done, which tells you a lot about the home run environment nowadays. Yeah. I mean basically he's doing in line what he's been doing in the past. But now the different baseball helping him anyway. Anyway, going one for this rapid fire thing. Jesse Winker just turns twenty six August in Dennis deform, keeping her, cutting, I didn't expect this. I did think. Winker would would go pass twenty home runs. But I thought for sure he would bat for like two eighty because of his plate discipline..

"Whole lot just kinda served out there for a hit two hits last night, two stolen bases a hip tonight, and a stolen base three to reds lead one out into the top of the six when the rains came we believe although I'm looking at not that I'm a radio. Not that I'm meteorologist. But what I'm looking at is a big gigantic green blob over Cincinnati and surrounding parts and then outside of the green blob is a big giant blue blob around it now, I believe, on the scale of. On the scale of house significant. I believe green is more significant than blue. Yes. So the green is moving through from two to the east, I guess from what I'm looking at south east on.

When you think of Ichiro's career you think hits and steals, but don't forget about his incredible arm
"You've heard Ichiro reported his he's going to retire after this game today that they're playing this morning in Japan. Now, he has three thousand hits I did some research. Thirty two players have three thousand hits twenty-seven have five hundred home runs. If you're a player, which which feet would you rather achieve five hundred home runs or three thousand hits in today's game. Five hundred home runs. Three thousand hits is nice. But I don't know if people really look at that is that's an incredible it is an incredible feat. I don't know of today's baseball generation looks at that and says boy he had ten consecutive seasons of two hundred hits or more along with Pete Rose. You also stole five hundred basis. I don't think that we look at though, they're not glamour numbers anymore stolen, bases hits. And it used to be. But now, I think it would be home runs. If I could have five hundred home runs as opposed to three thousand hits today twenty years ago. I'm taking the three thousand hits factor in sabermetrics with that opinion because obviously on base percentage has become in some people's mind more important than batting average. You remind me of sabermetrics, I never think of sabermetrics the game. I mean, I don't know if it changed it in a good way. I think there's so many stance with baseball that you're you're you're drunk with stats. You drowned in those stats homerun, very simple. There's nothing to factor in with that. It's just you hit a home run. What if back in the day, they decided to walk counts for a hit which would have been very reasonable. Measure, in fact, probably more reasonable than not counting for. I don't know why they decided not if they did that then you would look at Adam Dunn is I'm sorry. The former White Sox slugger as as valuables in each row. It was just a random decision statistically, not to count walks. Yeah. I mean, you count points for free throws on base percentage. I know that that's a big deal. But it makes you well you keep saying Adam Dunn. One of the great players because I look at on base percentage. I just think a guy who strikes out one hundred eighty times to two hundred times in a season. You're not even putting the ball into play. How can that guy? Be that valuable. Okay. He walks hits home runs or strikes out. That's not somebody. I wanted my lineup. Yeah. Paulie? He didn't really have a great base percentage. No. He did. He did not walk a lot. We do. We ran the numbers a little bit each came into the league at twenty seven. And he was he won MVP as a rookie and rookie of the year. If he would come in just two seasons earlier at twenty-five with how good he was you could tack on another almost five hundred hits he'd be sixth all-time he'd be over thirty five hundred hits. If he just came in at age twenty five twenty seven. Yeah. Now, he's a great player didn't win. Anything was baseball. You can be selfish in a team sport. Because it's you at the plate. Now, there are other mitigating factors in there. But still you go to the plate. It's just you. And he's playing in right field. He was very good outfielder. Great arm. I don't know how many Gold Gloves, but he won a few Gold Gloves out there, but three thousand hits five hundred stolen bases in first. Ballot hall of Famer he came into the league with the Seattle. Mariners magin if he would've came into the league with the New York Yankees with how he came out of the gate. Oh, one through nine. He was through two thousand ten all star every year top twenty MVP every year. Imagine if you did all that with the Yankees where he'd be looked at

"It sounds like you have some thoughts on him. Two thousand fourteen. He let's see his one hundred sixty two game average twenty six homers ninety RBI's betting ever to sixty eight slowing four seventy five his eighteen now. He played mainly for the as right? He did. But here's the thing. He has six gold glows. So out of his numbers. You can't just look at him from an offensive point of view. He was defence guide. He was a silver SOGA word winter once in six time gold glove winner. But that's basically it that's basically his career. I'm not saying he gets in. It's going to be extremely difficult for him to get in. I just say that because I wonder how much they're going to value his defensive prowess. I think it's six go glove in over ten year career. I'm gonna say now. How about? Adam done. This one's interesting. Power hitter to till he dies. I saw him one time I'm going to tell you a an antidote right here, personal antidote. This dude in San Francisco. Hit a baseball that I've I've never seen. Somebody hit a ball further or harder in my entire life. He hit into McCovey cove. In right field into the water splash. Here's some of the longest home runs in history. And I was sitting on the wall. I was sitting on the right field wall. You know, the big wall go that thing went way over like it went way over the foul pole. It was so I remember looking up Jeff looking literally up and watching it sail over my head. And then when my net couldn't go backwards any further I turned around and the ball was still traveling. And I saw it hit the water. And I was like, are you kidding me? I had never seen it ball hit. You were impressed. Oh, yeah. In fact, I remember the buzz that it created when he hit like I remember like after it hit the water like everyone to spend like, whoa. 'cause no one was cheering because he's on the other team. But it was like. Like, did you see that? Yeah. Well, that wasn't saying Adam Dunn, though, let's go back to him was when we were just time all star. I mean, let's go back to his numbers to time all star. A man who strict out about about two hundred times a year. He went over two hundred just once, but he was very close number of times as average is one hundred ninety three he hands up one ninety three batting average his average amount of strikeouts. Oh. He was definitely in the one seventies. One eighty one nineties a bunch of times strikeouts. That guy did hit four hundred sixty two home runs eleven hundred sixty RBI's. Heck she stole six sixty three bases. Which is weird. Think about he walked to pitch. So as betting to thirty seven his slugging four ninety. What do you say about Adam Dunn? He's purely a power hitter not a contact hitter. Not a defensive player. I mean, you're literally going off a pure power numbers. If you put him in. Is under sixty.

"They would be moving their defenders around, so I'm not sure babba would change that much now. It would, of course go up just because there's so much more space. And if you hit a ball over guy said, then you're going to have probably triple or or a home run inside the park right there. But the players are still going to be like, you're still going to have the same number of hits on the infield. You're gonna have a similar number of hits like within the outfielders range because it's not like you're, you're making the defender, stationary, traditional positioning. So I, I think the I love responses that, yeah, this would reduce three true considerably as you just incentivize power, but. Then I think that there would be at least some teams who would go in the other direction. Yeah. All right. Questioned from Mike a question. Hit me tonight. Looking at the MLB leaderboards you'll Chris Davis is currently hitting an abysmal one seventy three with hundred sixty eight strikeouts. This was a while ago. So those numbers are no longer up to date. Now Chris Davis is hitting one seventy five with one hundred seventy eight strikeouts that's. So the question is has anyone with at least one hundred to one hundred fifty at bats ever had more strikeouts than their batting average in nineteen Ninety-one. Rub dear hit one seventy nine with one hundred seventy five strikeouts could crush be having a historic season. So Chris Davis is doing this rate. He has now four hundred forty five at bats, and he has more strikeouts hundred seventy eight strikeouts hundred seventy five batting average and there are two guys who have done this and to have done it in more at bats than Chris Davis and probably not surprise who these two guys are. It's Adam Dunn of course it's Adam Dunn in two thousand twelve at done head five hundred thirty nine at bats, and he struck out two hundred twenty two times while betting to four. And then of course there was Mark Reynolds in two. Thousand ten who had four hundred ninety nine at bats and struck out two hundred eleven times.
