"So essentially that kind of confirmed what I was thinking that in general, the more accurate the empire, the more their calls conform to the rule book strike zone, the better offense is when those empires are behind the plate. So that might suggest that if we go full on toward accuracy and we have robot ups, then there would indeed be a boost to offense. So that supports what I was thinking and I guess if you want more contact and more scoring, et cetera, I guess that's another argument in favor of robot ups. I have expressed some reservations about the fact that, you know, if you have robot arms, then you get rid of the tendency for the zone to expand and contract, depending on the count, which a lot of people I think look at as a benefit that it's unfair that it's inconsistent, but as I've noted, it does give a leg up to the disadvantaged party. So if the pitchers behind in the count, they get a leg up, if the hitter is behind an account, they get a leg up. And so you would have more non competitive plate appearances essentially where you would not kind of give a boost to the party that is currently in the hole. So I think that might be bad, but on the whole, I think, offense would increase slightly if they were to just implement the robot zone immediately like right now. Now all of this, the big caveat is that when and if they do, impose some sort of automatic strike zone, they may very well change the contours of it, right? Because you wouldn't want some pitches that are technically strikes, like maybe some curve that just dips down and catches the very bottom of the strike zone, but basically no one thinks it's a strike and no one would call it a strike. So they will probably make some tweaks and they have made some tweaks in the miners to change the dimension. So if they change the dimension significantly, then really all bets are off because they could decide to make it more offense friendly or less Athens friendly. But all else being equal, I think the predictability of it would help hitters and I think these results are some evidence to kind of corroborate that as best we can without actually seeing it in action. Yeah. Is that a benefit for you, I guess, I guess many people would consider it to be, but I don't know. I guess I like the idea of just having more contact, however, that is, I don't think this is like the most efficient way to do it that would not be the reason to do it. It might just be a nice little perk on top if you already want that system just for consistency's sake. I guess I really do wonder, this is sort of related to my question about how much do we notice strikeouts? How much do we notice the missing balls in play? How much do we notice the home runs? I wonder how good a sense the average fan has of like what the zone really does, right? Like how people calling the zone impacts the game in particular counts in particular circumstances. I think they think they want one thing. They definitely want something, but I don't know if they're going to get what they want. Like what they actually think they're going to get, you know? Oh yeah, there could be all kinds of consequences. You just might not like in practice what you think you'd like in theory. Yeah, 'cause they were like gonna get so mad at those curve balls that clip the zone. You can guess so I'm mad about it. Yeah. Yeah. And I will say that the connection between how accurate the umps are and how pitcher or hit her friendly they are. It's not so strong that being very accurate means you're definitely hit her friendly and vice versa. In fact, it varies quite a bit. So in this two season regular season sample, there was a three way tie for most accurate ump between our boy John lipka, our other boy pat hoberg, and also Jeremy re hack, who I mentioned the other day too. The official of the effectively wild podcast. Our boys, that's how I always refer to them, you know? Like, that's my, that's my boy Patrick. A lot of abuse. There should be four vampires. I'm not look, Ben. You know me, I feel bad that they get Buddha as much as they do. I don't know that I am as close to like getting a Jersey. You know, Ben, Ben. You know what this means? What? Okay, so next year you will be, you'll be in this magic zone of Halloween, right? You will want to do Halloween because of Sloan, but Sloan will still be too little to express a preference for a costume. Yeah. And so like, you could be an umpire, you could be pat hoberg, and she could be the strike zone, then you could just hold her. It would be adorable, or you could get if she's not into costumes, you could get a onesie with a picture frame on it and draw a baseball in the middle. She could be pitch framing. We're gonna work on it. We have a whole year to workshop us, but this idea is awake. Yeah, we're gonna get there though. Anyway, those three were tied with a 95.2% accuracy rate. And in terms of whether they were offense friendly or not, all over the map, basically. Just lipka, very accurate umpire and was the 9th most hitter friendly of the 76 who at least 40 games re hack also same accuracy rate. He was the 48th most hitter friendly of the 76. And then pat hoberg, same accuracy rate, he was 70th. Out of 76. So Ho Berg, at least in this sample, was pretty picture friendly, lipka pretty hindered friendly, even with the same overall accuracy rate. So there's going to be some variation obviously because it depends on who's pitching when those empires happen to be played and who's catching and all of that. And hopefully that all kind of comes out in the wash when you look at the full sample, but it might not for an individual umpire even over multiple seasons. Anyway, there's not that big a gap in the accuracy rates in general. It goes from 95 something to like 92 or something. So that's probably why even bigger gap doesn't appear in the offensive statistics is that there's not that huge a gap in the accuracy rates. That's improved over time. If you did this on a game level, if you looked at the umpire accuracy on a game level and then matched that up with the offense on a game level, maybe you'd get an even stronger single there. So if anyone wants to do that, or perhaps I will do it in a future step less, but that might be even more telling. Anyway, thought that was interesting. And lastly, I will give you the past blast. This is, of course, episode 1924, and thus this past blast comes from 1924, and from Jacob renke, Sabres director of editorial content and chair of the black Sox scandal research committee, and he headlines this 1924, the razzing fan. This is very topical. Philly's third baseman Alec bohm came under fire earlier this season when he grumbled about the hometown fans booing him at Citizens Bank park. He interrupts you. Sure. I'm gonna interrupt you and by extension Joe Davis, who gave what I imagine was also a sanitized version of this story. And I think that there should be a special exemption from potential fines for swearing on the air to tell the story. Because he didn't express what I was supposed to say. I hate this place. Yes, he did. And it was great. It was great. And Philly's fins for David. Yes. She was like, that was too much. Yeah, right. He was like, you know, it was a tough moment, and I didn't mean it and emotions got the best of me, and it was frustrating time. And they gave him an ovation and all seems to be forgiven. So that's great. He apologized, and that's that. Anyway, continuing, but Philadelphia fans earn their reputation for blunt honesty a long time ago, back in 1924, they were called out publicly for their rowdy behavior, according to this article that appeared in Collier's eye on June 7th. The razzing fan must go. Banned Johnson, president of the American League thinks the leader of ill natured booing in the stands should be ejected. This enthusiast not only begins to swing others to his way of thinking, but is annoying to the fans who wish to sit peaceably and enjoy the game. Philadelphia is the worst city in the league in this practice, mister Johnson says, and he believes the continual criticism of the players is largely responsible for the poor showing of the team. He holds the fans are justified in a certain amount of criticism, but he deplores the noisy, ill bred type who hurls insults from the stands, believing he is immune from responsibility, and Jacob concludes Philadelphia, of course, had not one, but two terrible teams to boo in 1924, the Phillies last 96 games with the lowest scoring offense

"Which is that usually if you're on track to give up 5 homers or 700 runs, you don't get to stay in the game because it's the World Series. You get yanked. And so this was just a slow hook, I think, given the circumstances, given the stakes, et cetera. So you hope that dusty would learn from that and use his great weapon of this incredibly deep pitching staff, which is all we talked about coming into the series, and got to give credit to the Phillies bullpen, which is stepped up. I mean, the Astros bullpen has also been very good. It's not like the Astros bullpen has blown up the only problem is that it hasn't been given the opportunity to pitch enough potentially. But really, I think both bullpens now at Joshi and had this stat in his newsletter, the starters have allowed 23 runs in 30 innings combined. The relievers have allowed two runs in 24 innings, so the bullpens have been lights out, which was expected for the Astros, and a little less so for the Phillies, but the Phillies bullpen, this postseason, 2.45 ERA in 55 innings. Now, I know this Phillies bullpen is better than a lot of past Philly's bullpens, but it's not necessarily the one you would appoint it to and said, yeah, this bullpen is gonna be nails all October, but we've seen this before, like sometimes a team has a great bullpen month, and that can propel you to a title. And it's not necessarily the team that you expected. I mean, we talk about how bullpens can be unpredictable over the course of a full regular season. So over the course of a single postseason, all bets are off and really anything can happen. And so the Phillies bullpen has really stepped up as did Suarez. Suarez was really great too. She was excellent. And he just looked, I mean, I know that this might be kind of squishy or whatever, but boy, he just looks so calm out there, you know? He's so reassuring when it's going well. Slow heart pizza. Slow heartbeat exactly. Right. Like he is, you know, if you as a scout are trying to help people understand what that term means like Suarez is the guy to point you. He just looks so even keeled he's so. And then after he had this big smile and I was just like, yeah, dude, you pitched a great game. You got all this run support you all love each other. It's so it's nice. Yep, so this may have changed by the time people are listening to this, but as we speak. It could be disparage the Phillies. You really between extremes here. But right now everything is coming up Phillies between The Rain out, which benefited them more and led to some more advantageous starting pitcher matchups and rested bullpens and then winning the game and then winning this game without having to use El Dorado or Dominguez or Robertson or effluent so you're going into these next games with a very rested back of the bullpen and home field advantage is negated now over the rest of this series. So things are looking good. It's far from over and I would imagine that this series will go back to Houston certainly, the odds are in favor of that. Nothing would surprise me. Nothing surprises me in any pussy and serious. I have lost the capacity for surprise when it comes to postseason baseball, which does that mean I've lost the capacity for fun and enjoyment and delight. I can still have those things. So mccullers tipping, right? A lot of the conversation was about tipping. So we've had sticky stuff controversies in this postseason now we've got a pitch tipping one and you gotta have your pitch tipping in October conversation that always seems to surface at some point. So there were a few pieces of evidence I suppose here. I made a the fact that mccullers got rocked. Yeah. And then Bryce Harper somewhat suggestively talking to Alec bohm. Seeming to give him some sort of tip after his Homer and prior to bohm's Homer. And so people started to talk about that and then of course you get the frame by frame breakdowns and the gifts in the screenshots and my default position when it comes to pitch tipping. I believe in its existence. I'm not saying it's Bigfoot or anything. Get tipped. Skeptical in any individual case and I guess skeptical about the magnitude of it. Look, I'm sure there have been times where someone was very obviously tipping and the team picked up on it. They just rocked him because of that. But I would imagine that it's not always so obvious. Not always so easy to go from picking up on pitch dipping to capitalizing on the pitch dipping, much like sign stealing. We know that even when you know what's coming, that doesn't necessarily mean you can hit it and also it can be kind of distracting sometimes if you're trying to pay attention to the banging of a trash can or some sort of pattern that the pitcher is supposedly exhibiting and meanwhile you're trying to react to the actual pitch. So it maybe gets you out of your routine a little, so there were people who were absolutely convinced that McCarthy was tipping and people were talking about leg lifts and patriot Martinez said there was no doubt in his mind that mccullers was tipping. Hey, he knows a lot about pitching, you know? Sure. I'll link to his analysis and he was talking about how McCarthy was lifting the glove above his head higher uncertain pitch types than others, et cetera, et cetera. I don't know. Like mccullers denied it. He said, he wasn't tipping. I don't know whether that's evidence either way. Do you think if you're a winter colors, like you might be lined up to pitch again in game 7, would it be better for that to have been the product of tipping? Like, would you feel better about yourself if you realize, okay, I was tipping. That's why they were knocking me all over the park because I was very obviously giving something away here or would you well feel embarrassed that you a veteran pitcher of veteran postseason pitcher, which maybe was a factor in baker's mind too, that color has so much postseason experience and even World Series experience. So would you feel shame that you allowed yourself to give away what you were doing so easily? Or would you feel better about it because it's like, okay, it was tipping along. And if I could just correct the tipping, then I'll be golden next time. Well, I mean, I don't know that I'd feel shame. It's not a moral failing. I think that I would certainly feel better if it were tipping. I don't know that I would say it was tipping though. Like I don't know that I, you know, if you're playing 5 dimensional chess or whatever, with the Phillies. And I think that we should entertain the possibility that the chilies are a little tricksters and that there was no tipping. The I mean like Harper really did look like he was sitting on that pitch and not just because it got through him right down the dick and he hit it really far.

"Two good innings. He too real good innings. And then they hit a blooper, a Homer, and then I couldn't get anybody loose. I mean, you know, it was my decision. Dusty was asked about Bryce Harper, a player he managed in Washington, helping teammates out with tendencies. Here's give a listen. TV cameras caught Bryce passing on a lot of info to his fellow hitters over there. Someone who managed him for a few years and he's obviously a pretty smart player. Does that not surprise you much, just whether it was tendencies or whatever he was seeing. I mean, you know, he's a very astute baseball player, very stupid person. And that's what teammates do. That's a good hitters do. They pass on whatever information that they can that they can find and see. Whether he passed on the information, you know, to actually help him, but that's between him and his teammates. But no, that unsurprised me at all. That's what guys are supposed to do. Alec bohm was asked what Harper told him. What did Harper tell you? Nothing? Boom was asked about sharing information with teammates. Yeah, I mean, look, up and down the lineup, we got guys are known as some of the best hitters in our game. So I'd be foolish not to talk to them and see what they're seeing and see what they've got. So these guys have also been around. 5, 6, 7 years longer than I have. So they've seen these guys throughout their careers and they've seen different things. So I think just picking at that and then them being willing to share and trying to set the rest of us up for success. Taylor, what else you got?

"We can make a push in the second half. Saw a lot of Bronco defensive players take to social media to express their disappointment that Bradley Chubb is gone. It sure seems to me like if I'm in that locker room, the message is clear. We've waved the white flag on this season. So am I right or wrong about that? If you're a player in that locker room, how are you to respond? What's the message being received by that locker room? I don't know about waving the white flag. I mean, I don't know. I don't know that that's exactly the message. I understand you lost your friend. Right? I hope it's a wake-up call because ultimately it's your fault. I mean, you guys eat, it's the defensive player's fault? It's a football team's fault. I know, but I'm referencing the I don't care about the message specifically to those defects that are carrying the smell. I'm not asking about the message of the defensive. The message your football team is you guys have underperformed, coaching staff and players. I mean, we can all sit there. This is the problem with this is the problem with some of the issues with the Broncos over the last few years. The division between offense and defense that's been that's clearly been there, but that's a problem. And the fact that you get pissy about moving Bradley Chubb, when? Play better sacrifice for one another. Don't talk about it, be about it. Don't be talking about how great you are and you're doing lunges in the airplane when. When more games, it's pretty simple. So these are the things that football teams do as a football business when football players don't reach their potential. It's pretty simple. Next on the morning brew. The bit swung on, hits him.

The Phillies put on a rocking, what's their place, citizens, citizens, bank park, or whatever it is, they're in Philly. Apparently it got so loud there at that game twice the crowd registered as a seismic event. Yeah, they are. They had 5 home runs. They tie the World Series record and they slammed the Astros 7 nothing. I think that for most people is like most people still harbor a lot of resentment toward the Houston astronauts all the Phillies are America's team right now. There's no doubt. Vast majority of Americans rooting for the Phillies. That's a great plus I love Philly fan. I mean, they are a vitriolic sword, but I love them. Good for them. No, this is a likeable Philly's team.

Well, in a season in which not much happened, he was definitely one of The Shining spots. And you're absolutely right. At the end of April. Excuse me, at the end of May. He was hitting zero 78. Zero 78. He didn't get over 200 until the middle of May. And he ended up hitting

We looked at what we tried to do with William and it didn't work. We didn't find the fit that we were hoping to find. When we were looking for a guy that had a specific skill set that could understand the match coverages and play the magic coverages, the way we do with everybody else. And he struggled with it because he really is a man coverage type guy. So along the lines during our evaluation process, we were wrong. Yeah, and it was an expensive mistake.

Danny Burke, your host here on rush hour. Thank you for being with us. Excited to bring on our next guest, Ryan rothstein, he is host of the Philadelphia city cast, and you can follow him on Twitter at wise rye. We were talking with Ryan last week. I know he was elated because he's Billy's were doing great and they're still looking like they could be in a favorable spot tonight and then we're coming off the eagles preseason and man, we got a lot to talk about with the ride so happy to have you on is always pal, but let's get into that Philly's game tonight. So yeah, maybe a favorable game tonight and this series 'cause you're taking on the reds and Philadelphia is up to minus one 77 with cinder guard taking the bump. Are we feeling about this spot tonight? It feels like a nice and nice bounce back type of a game and a series coming off that the series against the New York mets in New York where you drop two of three, the Phillies bat, standing, you talk about in a rhythm, really since beginning of July. I mean, we can really go back to June 1st, but this Phillies offense has been on fire and then they go up to New York and they get the likes of sharzer. They get the likes of de Grom. And I think they get a little bit hashtag humbled in that weekend series against the New York mets, the NL east, division leading Matt, so offense cooled off a little bit, but now they're going up against Mike miner who's been not great. I think I'm putting that very nicely this season 6.24 ERA. This is a get right game for the fills and guys like Hoskins, Alec bohm, and of course JT Rio Muto, who's been hitting the ball really well. So yeah, no, like he's suddenly minor, not really been the most efficient pitcher up to this point. Like, I mean, hey, it's baseball. It's a game of ebbs and flows over such a long season. Maybe that kind of tough series this past weekend for the Phillies is a good reset, like you said, getting humbled a little bit, but should be a good one out there and Cincinnati for the Phillies. Again, minus one 77 is what they're laying in a higher total of about 9 right there in the thick of it for the wild card spot. Ryan, I want to ask you now about the eagles, of course. And before we get into some of these props and stuff, was there anything in your mind to take away from their pre season effort against the jets? Anything notable or you kind of just like, all right, week one of the preseason, it is what it is. Let's just keep moving on until we get to the start of the regular season. Yeah, exactly that part of what you had to say, Danny. Listen, I'm all for the fans getting excited over Jalen hurts in the eagles. Losing to the jets in the preseason. I mean, that's awesome. Okay. Jalen had 5 check downs out of his 6 completions going 6 for 6 for 80 yards and a touchdown against the New York Jets who are basically like my high school JV team. So fans can get excited on Twitter and Instagram, but the reality of it is I'm not taking squat away from any of these pre season games. I think we're all really excited and happy for football to get back, especially in the later part of the summer. We're excited to bet on football, the preseason games roll around the Hall of Fame game rolls around, then your team's preseason games get underway and you're like, oh yeah, to take something that will hill our good friend from the New York City cast and contributor for Visa right here. He tweeted something out that I couldn't agree with more. He said, you know, we all love betting on these pre season games until we lose these bets and we feel like an idiot and, you know, that's how I feel about not just betting the preseason here, but trying to take anything away from any of these games. I'm not going to look at Jalen hurts going 6 for 6 against the jets and now, you know, hammer the eagles to win the division at plus one 65 because of that or the eagles to make the playoffs. Yes, minus one 67 because of that. That's just not something I'm going to do. So wake me up when August ends. Wake me up when it's week one against the Detroit Lions. As far as assessing what the eagles have at quarterback, Danny. Brian, you realize we've already set up the Super Bowl banners after the bears just won their first pre season game, right? I don't understand anything you're saying. We're all just incredibly ecstatic here in Chicago. You're telling me we shouldn't be running to the counter and taking what happened in week one with the bears. Come on, this may be all we have, buddy. Well, you know, for the bears fans, yeah. You know, you got to take your wins when you get them because you don't get them very often. Very true. That is the unfortunate fact of probably what's going to happen this year. Well, hey, right. At least you do have some expectations this season. Not only for the overall scope of your team. But like you said, with Jalen hurts, I mean, so be a pre seasons preseason. But when we look at it for the actual regular season where things start to matter, I just kind of want to dish out some of these player props with you. And even if you don't want to bet them didn't bet them, whatever. I kind of just want to pick your brain and get your leans on them, passing yards for Jalen hurts 3600 and a half or passing touchdowns at 22 and a half, which one do you think you'd have a little bit more conviction with for a play? Yeah, it's a great question. You look at 3600 and a half and you feel like that's a good play. And I would probably agree. I would say that is a good play, but that is not something I'm betting, and then you threw in the passing touchdowns total at 22 and a half. If I have to look at a better bet type of scenario or look at it either or scenario, certainly we could play both. We can stay away from both. But just for the sake of this conversation, I'm going to lean with the passing touchdowns at 22 and a half, a little bit more confidently from the betting perspective, of course. That's what we do. Then the 3600. I feel like he can get 400, 500 more passing yards, but something that scares me. There's a few things that scare me. One is can this guy stay healthy? He's not injury prone. He's still very early in his career, but he did miss a game last season. This is a kid that, like, listen, everyone wants to talk about Jalen hurts and his evolving pocket presence. He's played his whole entire life a certain style a certain way. So I hope he improves. I'm not saying he can't, but this kid is still going to run out of the pocket. He's still going to use his athleticism and just pure instincts because that's how he's been playing his whole life. All well and good, can he stay healthy through 17 games? So that's a concern on total passing yards. And now you have AJ Brown in the mix, this offense is getting better. Devonta Smith in year two, I think Dallas Goddard's prime for a big year. So very long winded answer, Danny. I stay away from the total passing yards, and I look at the over 22 and a half passing touchdowns. Okay, you mentioned Devante Smith and Dallas Goddard. So Devante smith's receiving yards prop 8 50 and a half goddards at 700 and a half. I correct me if I'm wrong, I feel like you got some betting interest in these from

I hear you just got paid they can rain in a G she more can't go he lost entropy be waving around the crowd gone Beyoncé's track energy on her new album renaissance is missing something. The portion of the 2003 R&B dance hit milkshake that was in the song originally. After musician kelis complained that she was not properly credited as a songwriter on the album, Beyoncé removed that portion of the song. This situation is a warning to emerging artists who could find themselves locked out of lucrative royalties if they don't secure the credit for their contributions up front. My guest is Robert clarida, who heads the intellectual property practice at reitler careless and rosenblatt. So Beyoncé did credit kelis, who was 24 when the song debuted nearly two decades ago as the performer and Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo as the songwriters. What does an artist who wants to use someone else's work in their song have to do? What kind of permissions do they have to get? What kind of royalties do they have to pay? Typically the way that works is and there's really two different kinds of copyrights involved here. There's the copyright in the song and then there's the copyright in the recording of the song. And those are two different things. Sometimes they're owned by the same person. Sometimes they're not. Frequently, they're not. The record label will often own the copyright in the sound recording and the songwriter will own the copyright in the song. My understanding in the case of the energy track is that it was not a sample of the sound recording. It was Beyoncé actually singing the melody. It wasn't a recording of kelis voice singing it. So if that's the case, then it would only be the songwriter that would have to be approached about that. And typically in a situation like that, where a small piece of a song is used called an interpolation is the term that's often used in the industry now. There will be some kind of a fractional percentage paid from the revenues of that song the person who owns the piece that was interpolated will get some small percentage of the royalties. Generated by the song. But it's a negotiated thing. It's not like standard price. It's all how popular was the first record, how big is the second record? What kind of bargaining power does everybody have? It doesn't seem like Beyoncé did anything wrong here. I mean, I can certainly imagine that if song on the police record was credited to Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo and they'd say to Beyoncé, sure, you can use it if I were on Beyoncé's team, I would say, okay, we've got the writers permission here. We're fine, and they would put the credit on the record accordingly. I mean, if there is some kind of backstory that the credits on the police track were not accurate, how is Bianca going to know that? I mean, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo presumably would know that if that were the case. But Beyoncé wouldn't know that necessarily. So I'm not sure that Beyoncé did anything. Wrong here other than taking somebody's word for something and to the extent that someone on her team had looked up the credits on the police record, they would have seen those two names on it and they would have had no reason to think there was a red flag there about anything. Kelis said she took part in the writing, it was supposed to be 33, 33, 33. Do young artists have to get a lawyer to make sure their rights are protected when they're involved in projects like this? They need to have someone with some industry experience, whether it's a manager or a lawyer, the actual title doesn't much matter, but it has to be somebody with some industry experience who can know sort of what the pitfalls are. And that's often not the case, particularly when artists are first starting out. I'm not familiar with police's career. I don't know how many records she had made previously. Maybe she had a lot of experience in the industry, but it seems in that case that if she did participate in the writing of the song and it was her understanding that it would be one third splits all around, there should have been a piece of paper somewhere and someone representing her should have made sure that there was a piece of paper somewhere that set that out that that's what the splits would be. Oftentimes, that's handled in a very kind of quick and dirty way with what they call a split sheet at the recording session. Somebody will just memorialize what the splits are for

"And I know that it has hurt probably like tremendous lost a bunch of homers that new fence, deeper fence, higher fence, et cetera, I would like to see just what the net gainer wasp there has been if we could figure that out. Maybe analysis has been done. And I haven't come across it yet. But yeah, it's been fun to see them be not good, but better. So congratulate Orioles fans who have stuck it out and are now just starting to reap the rewards and don't be deflated and discouraged if they do take a slight step back here. In the next month or so, whether win loss wise or trade deadline wise because hopefully that will just be a last bump before they take another leap forward. Yeah, I think that we can say with a reasonable degree of confidence that this time it will be in service of winning quite soon. As opposed to prior years when you could not say that. Just a couple other observations before we finish with the past blast first, don't have to dwell on it, I guess, because what else is there new to say at this point? But the Phillies anti vax contingent, which is not new for that franchise, but relative to other teams this year, they are losing more prominent players than most they have. When they are going to Toronto to play the Blue Jays. So they have lost Alec bohm, who I guess they lost anyway to yet another finger injury. That TV had a rash of those. When it happened, have we gotten a definitive diagnosis on it yet? I've seen one. He was sliding, and he came up and he's like, it's broken. You could see him mouthing. It's broken. And I was like, oh, and then they showed the replay. And anytime you get an injury replay, you're like, is this gonna be gross, and then you're like, oh yeah, that was gross, then yeah. I think you're right that that is broken. So I don't know if we know that for sure, but it seemed like it was. Yep, yep. But in addition to him, it is also Aaron nola. It's JT real Muto. It's Kyle Gibson. I believe Gibson does have some medical condition. He has cited that he is on some medication for ulcerative colitis that could be playing a part in his decision to be unvaccinated, but real Muto came out and made pretty clear what his decision is, which is he said he consulted with doctors he knew and decided that he did not need the vaccine. He said it's an extremely unfortunate situation, obviously my teammates know how I feel about them and how bad I want to be out there with them but it's unfortunate I'm not able to make the trip he will lose more than a quarter of a $1 million and he said I'm not going to let Canada tell me what I do and don't put in my body for a little bit of money. It's just not worth it. Look, not a shock that there are people in MLB clubhouses who are thinking this way. I did see that Kyle schwarber, home run Derby participant. He said, there's no Clubhouse resentment about the players who are not going to Toronto. He said, we have each other's backs. There isn't one hard feeling just because we're headed to Toronto doesn't mean someone's being a bad teammate because they didn't get it. Which, like, literally doesn't mean that though. Yeah. Does it pretty much mean that? I don't want to deny Kyle schwarber, his emotional reality, because he gets to he gets to think what he thinks about it. And maybe he doesn't even feel that way. He's just saying that because you have to share a Clubhouse with these players one way or another and it's a long season and just in the interest of diplomacy. I mean, he might very well mean that, but you might also just say that if you didn't fully meet it. Yeah, all of that could be true, but I am going to respectfully disagree with that. I guess the question that I always have when this stuff happens is and I have this question for AL teams and I certainly have it for nationally teams. Like, what if the blue cheese won the pennant? Yeah? You know? What if they make the playoffs? Right. They're barely clinging to that spot. Right. And if you're on the Phillies, first of all, you know, who knows where you'll be in October. Just generally.

"alec bohm" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"So the first video we saw of him this year, what jumped out to me immediately was, I think he's in a lot better shape than he was when he left the angels last year. What about you? Do you agree or am I off base there? That could be it. I will say that Albert has a history of always showing up in really good shape. He always shows up a lot more slim and I think he's always been somebody to put on a little bit more weight as the season goes on. But look, this off season, everybody wondered if he was going to keep playing. He played in winter ball in the Dominican Republic. He stayed in the mineral republic for a while, training. He was ready. He figured that designated here was going to come in the national league and there might be additional opportunities there. He's not just some guy who they picked up off his couch. He's been training all off season, and you know with Albert, he's going to be professional about it. He's going to be ready to play. He's ready for them. No doubt. So two nights ago, Alec bohm of the Philadelphia Phillies made three throwing errors in three innings and got when he made a play. There was a sarcastic cheer from the Phillies fans. And there was a camera locked in a bohm's face and you could see that he said in reading his lips, I hate this effin place. That caught fire and social media. He was asked about it after the game and Alex bohm completely owned it, acknowledged that he said it, you know, talked about the fans. He said, I know they want me to win, and I'm paraphrasing. Well, this was the reaction last night when bohm was introduced for his first blade appearance in Philadelphia. We never got a dad. This is a pretty amazing city. So they absolutely were roaring in their standing ovation form. Allen, I love this. I thought this was a really cool moment. What'd you think? So did I, it actually really caught me off guard. I didn't expect it because a lot of people would cheer him. Because he owned it. Well, and you know that marketplace better than me. But a lot of the narrative coming off that night when he had those errors and he said what he said on the field was he's never going to be able to live that down in Philadelphia. It doesn't matter what he says. It's going to be a long season for him. Who knows if his career in Philadelphia is over, but I do think that it just sort of validated why people have this sort of weird love hate relationship with that market. I think those fans are different from any fans in the country probably a good ways and bad ways. And I think one of the great ways showed up the other day, which is that he said something awful about the city that would have really struck a nerve with that fan base, but being accountable the way he was, no matter what he said, people appreciated it. And I love to see it because at the end of the day, this is a young kid and I've talked to players before about just sort of going through these laws in a game where you just keep making errors and it seems as if you want to just sort of big the biggest hole possible and hide under it. And I can't imagine what Alec was going through that night. And this is going to help him. And this is ultimately going to help the Phillies. The fact that they were able to put it past them and give them a cheer, a big cheer, this could sort of help his confidence in that market moving forward. And I would not be so bold as to say, yes, the relationship is repaired. It is going to be great going forward because I both know it's going to come down to whether or not he has more moments when he's making mistakes and the scouting report on I'm talking with evaluators is he's as a ton of work to do defensively in a lot of questions about whether or not he can play that position long term. All right, the Dodgers coming into spring training is it feels like every spring training were viewed as on paper, the best team in baseball. What are you seeing in them so far? Well, I think I don't know if there's any evidence that they're not the best team in baseball yet. I think that sample size is small, but I will say, if you're going to nitpick and I don't know if this is going to cost them the division, the big concern that evaluators had about their team going in was they're starting pitching and just sort of the depth of their starting pitching. I think it's obvious that that lineup is going to be great. I think that bullpen is going around and to form because they have a lot of great depth and they could sustain any sort of underperformance. The rotation was a concern for a lot of people, particularly three through 5 because you weren't sure if playing Kershaw's left elbow is going to hold up and then there were questions about Andrew heaney and Tyler Anderson and Tony Gonzalez. Thereafter, the big red flag so far has been Julio urias, who was going to be one of their most relied upon starting pitchers. Their number two guy would walk through his velocity specifically being down. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and that it's early in the season. This stuff happens sometimes he did lose weight over the off season and just speaking of scouts sometimes pictures sort of, there's an adjustment period pitching with new weight, right? And I don't know if that's showing up for Julio. That's something to watch. The other person to watch Cody Bellinger obviously their lineup is deep enough that he doesn't need to be MVP Cody Bellinger. But he's been really struggling with some timing issues in his approach and it's going to be interesting to see if he could figure that out and keep tinkering with his batting stance. Again, Dave Roberts likes to use a certain phrase a lot, which is a high class problems. The Dodgers still have high class problems because they have an inordinate amount of depth and they have great talent. But those two things right now, who you were specifically Cody ballinger, those are showing up at the very least just sort of things to watch with them. Other than that, I think they're going to be dominant. There's no doubt. This Sunday Night, we've got the Atlanta Braves playing in San Diego against the Padres, San Diego had tumultuous spring training because right away we learned that Fernando Tatís Jr. was hurt and he's not going to be available. It sounds like to play until the first week of June, just watching them where they are now and sort of what's going on. The word that comes to mind for me is instability because it feels like they're all these moving parts all the time because they make a thousand trades, you know, you don't know how Eric Hosmer's feeling about being named in 50 trade rumors. You don't know how will Myers feels about being named in 50 trade rumors. You know, you don't really know exactly what Fernando tatis, junior is going to be when he comes back, you know, defensively, which is playing an important position in shortstop. They're moving guys around. What are you seeing in the Padres? Yeah, just to go back to that point that you made about the instability. I've been thinking this ever since they first acquired Adam Frazier on July 26th, which was that the Padres seemed to have one more move in him, right? At that point it was just sort of free up a little bit of the redundancies on the position player side. And they never made that move. And going into opening day this year, people keep saying executives from other teams, scouts, baseball writers, have another move in them. They need to supplement their offense somehow Fernando Tatís Jr..
"alec bohm" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"So there's a lot of other MLB action we could discuss. I guess we could touch on the Phillies come from behind victory over the mets on Monday because was that what prompted you to tweet about being a fan of the NL east and just how demanding and mentally taxing that seems at times like this was what we thought the Phillies were going to be. Coming into this year. This fulfilled all the expectations. It's like this team is going to hit and this team is going to give back a lot of runs on defense and they did both in this game. I guess technically the three errors that Alec Bo made maybe did not lead directly to runs, but Alec bohm did indeed make three errors and also reach base 5 times in a game the Phillies came back to win against the mets 5 four. Alec bohm speaking of viral tweets, he was also caught saying that he was not a huge fan of the playing for the Phillies experience more or less people were able to read his lips as he said I effing hate this place and he did subsequently apologize after the game. Philly's fans famously forgetting, so I'm sure that they will all give him a pass on that. But rough day for him and rough day for the Phillies that turned into a fun day for the Philly. So yeah, you know, we're only a few days into the season, but this is pretty much par for the course. I'm pleased to satisfied with my Phillies watching experience so far. Yeah, so I'll say a couple of things here. The first of which is thank goodness they won that game because the other one would have had a much harder time. I mean, we've all had a hard day at work, right? We all sat there and thought to ourselves hated here. Even when you really like your job, you have days like that because it's your life, and work is work. So sometimes it manifests in less pleasant ways. I would like to point out that when the Phillies made their signings and I said, I had no notes. I did acknowledge that for Philly fans. This would probably be a very taxing experience, but that for the rest of us, it would be delightful. And so far, as you mentioned, they've really, you know, they've held true to my prediction. J jaffe is going to write about the Phillies defense for us, not in a way that puts any significance or meaning into a week's worth of defensive metrics because don't ever do that. Just don't ever do that. But you know, I think that wieners do sometimes watch the games and you don't need you don't need easy art to tell you that this isn't going great. But as I said to him, the unstoppable force has met the immovable object when it comes to the Met's met sing and the Phillies defense. I don't know which of them it is. I thought you were talking about the Shawn Murphy clip. Goodness. What about? No, so this isn't going great for them in some ways, but it's going well in others because they are, as you said, scoring runs even as they give them up. But I do worry for the stress level of all of the fans of the NL east. And when I tweeted about that, there was a braves fan who responded to me with a picture of the World Series ring, and look, you get to be sassy when you were a fan of the defending champs, but I've seen the way that some of those games have been closed out in recent days, and I think that you are inviting disaster, courting it as you will when you have had the stressful experience of both Janssen and Smith. So just everybody try to calm down, engage in breathing, exercises, maybe especially Alec Baldwin perhaps could use change of scenery that could mean any number of things for him, I suppose, but this is what happens when you assemble a team of DHS and then you're like, hey, go play the field anyway. You know, it's going to result in some taxing days at work. But even your worst days at work can result in in winds, that's a reality of working too. Yeah, and that game, the 5 reached pace, three error game. It doesn't happen a whole lot. And our friend Michael bauman put out a call on Twitter asking for precedent for that. How many times has it happened? And effectively wowed frequent stat blast consultant, Ryan Nelson, doing some freelancing here, stat blasting for others, he answered Michael and found that it has happened 14 times since 1900, but not since 1993. Move on was the last to have done it, which I guess checks out. Move on did it on April 29th, 1993. He had three errors at first base and also reached base 6 times, actually. So this does not happen a lot. It's been almost 30 years, and it hadn't happened since 1970 before then. So yeah, you know, we're talking twice in half a century or not even actually. So the Phillies already making history with this kind of game. It has happened most often with short stops, 5 times with third basement. I guess that makes sense. And I just look forward to what other feats of unprecedented defense and offense combined the Phillies will treat us to. This season. Yeah, and you know, it's like we got the Phillies being themselves. We got the mets being themselves within the mets being themselves. We got them being further themselves because poor Taiwan walker had shoulder bursitis and is going to go on the ten day injured list. So we're all just, you know, we can only ever be ourselves. Some of us are doomed or blessed to become our parents, but even that's just us being ourselves except older. So we alluded to the pirates in O'Neill Cruz earlier and it hasn't been a banner week for them and just for owners in general. They've not covered themselves in glory. They often do. But in the annals of nutting this week, we got an in depth report from the Pittsburgh post gazette, which took them years and public records requests and litigation from the pirates objecting to this information being revealed. So kudos to them for sticking with this investigation. But they came out with some numbers that basically seemed to show that the pirates MLB payroll costs over the past a good while. This was a report by Mark belko of the post gazette. The pirates payrolls at the major league level have basically been covered by their ticket and concession sales. So this stuff just has to be disclosed, has to be reported. The post gazette obtained these records and found that basically the pirates have covered their spending on major league players just with ticket sales and sales inside the ballpark, which means that all of that extra revenue that they're getting, the revenue sharing and all of the national broadcasting money and the ban payments and all the rest, that is just seemingly going into pirates owner's pockets. That is basically the conclusion here. I think the pirates disputed the numbers or at least the characterization and said something about how MLB payroll is not the only expense that a team incurs and that they have to pay coaches and minor leaguers and so forth. Yes, okay, sure, there are other expenses and your front office and everything. But that kind of pales in comparison to what you're spending on the big league team. And in the pirates case, that's not a lot. Only Oakland is spending less on its MLP payroll right now and this just kind of confirms what we all thought, what we all sort of knew and rob means wrote about this and broke it down further at baseball perspective. So I will link to both of those reports..
"alec bohm" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Went with the Phillies and immediately felt like I had made a huge mistake and I just feel like it's tough when you're giving up that many runs and I know it's a high strikeout era and there are fewer balls in play and so that helps. But when you already have the worst offensive team in the majors and then you add Castellanos and schwarber to it and you're just totally doubling down like it's like a silent killer almost. I mean it may not be silent in the Phillies case because there may be a lot of bloopers and very obvious mistakes and defensive miscues, but often when a team surprises it's because they have a really good defense and you just didn't realize it like the Cardinals generally do and I think the opposite can be true too where you know intellectually this team has a terrible defense but look at all those bets and look at all those arms and you can kind of overlook the defense, but it really does just like wear away at you. It's like high blood pressure weakening your arteries or something like you just don't know until you have a heart attack. That's bleak but that's kind of the way I think of this roster. And also on the subject of high blood pressure, they did make efforts to improve the bullpen, but this was a really, really bad bullpen last year too. And Cory, can you both help that Brad hand should help that? It could potentially help it quite a bit, but I feel like there are still enough questions around this bullpen that we might get the high blood pressure affects their at times, like they haven't completely made over the bullpen. And so it just adding to the overall effect of this isn't like meltdown territory. It's just has clear things that are going to drive fans absolutely up the wall. Right. Yeah. And they have, I think, the fourth highest expected payroll now, according to raster research, so they're just trying to sort of spend through it. It's like someone trying to tweet through a scandal or something. It's just like, let's just pour more money on the problem and great. All for it. Wish more teams would do it. But they are still trying to spend their way out of this strange roster construction. And this is just kind of what Dave dembrowski does at this stage of his career. And I've said it before, it sort of his superpower is just convincing ownership to loosen the purse strings. He seems to be more capable of doing that than just about any executive, so that's valuable. It seems simple to say, just come in and trade your prospects for good veterans or sign good free agents. Well, if anyone could do that, but you have to convince ownership to do that. It's just, by the time he leaves this organization, will it be a wasteland with lots of long-term commitments and no farm system and not a ton to show for it? That's the question because they've had such success so far when it comes to their big moves like Harper and Wheeler and real Muto and the problem has been not developing or acquiring complementary players to put around them. So will that run of success in free agency continue with schwarber and Castellanos? You look at their core and it is strong. Like you could say this is kind of a championship caliber core if you take their 5 or 6 best players, but I don't know that there's enough depth there. It's not going to be a great team. It's just what would be good enough to get past the 80 to 82 win range where they just have been stuck ever since they came out the other end of this rebuild. I mean, if they managed to make some playoff appearances, I think that it will probably be viewed as fine because right now we're thinking of them as the team that couldn't make the rebuild process work, right? Like that is sort of the accusation that has been leveled against the Phillies and it's been a fair one because it's not anything. We should if the Mariners make the postseason this year, the Phillies are their postseason drought is like creeping up there. It is not short. So, you know, if they manage to make a little run like that, then I don't know. Is it exactly what Philly's fans would have wanted? No, I'm sure they want a World Series, but if postseason appearance would probably be a good step. All right, well, any breakout picks catch your eye as their next ranger Suarez somewhere in this restaurant. I feel like this one is kind of perhaps low hanging fruit, but we had last year Alec bohm really struggled at the plate, but still hit the ball really hard. 75 WRC plus, which was a big step back from what he did in 2020, but he also, you know, his average exit velocity is like 89th percentile, so perfect fit for the roster and that, of course, the glove is, but I think at the plate, I think he can perhaps tap into enough there to just be a perfect fit, and help them help them rake while just not doing anything to speak up on the field. Yeah, there are all these bones and kingery is in moniac hanging around here who like, if one of them could click, that would really help quite a lot..
