The Rise and Fall of Baseball's Hottest Young Manager
"So Buster. The Red Sox and Alex Cora mutually parted ways on Tuesday. I think that's what we're calling it. After it was revealed that Cora was an integral part in the illegal sign stealing operation in Houston in two thousand seventeen when he was the astros bench coach. MLB is currently investigating the Red Sox as well to determine whether he implemented similar signs stealing in their twenty eighteen world series winning season season and now we are all awaiting to see what his punishment will be. What was your reaction to the report of his wrongdoing and his subsequent firing well? I wasn't surprised that he wound up leaving from what I understand from talking with sources that he knew as soon soon is the astros fired. Aj hinch and they fired. Jeff Luneau their general manager that his position with the red sox wasn't tenable depressing intimate set in terms. The suspensions and at the very least Alex is going to probably get a year and if they were to stack on the extra counts for the red SOx walks in two thousand eighteen at the end of that investigation. He might even get more time than that and so I think he totally understood that they're in a position where they were going to have have to consider a change. We met with Alex yesterday and everyone went into that meeting trying to answer. The question is what was in the best interest for the Boston. Red Sox Alex was professional understanding that he had made a mistake and and so after a couple of conversations. We all mutually agreed that we needed to part ways. But we do it. Alex feels like to some degree. Sorry that he's leaving on his own terms just as someone who's known for a long time and worked with them. I certainly feel that way a year ago. I think we would talk about about. Alex is being the most powerful manager in baseball and now we don't know if he's ever going to manage the big leagues again. But you worked with him when he was at. ESPN right right right. Worked with him for four years. ESPN did shows with him was around him and then after he left. You know when I would do my work on Sunday night. Baseball all or other type reporting and you talk to him or you're around the red sox and you watched how he interacted with players boy. He ascended so quickly and I can't remember someone who probably was better suited for the position of manager and saying I can't sit here today and predict that he's ever going to manage again in the major leagues seeks buster. What did baseball say that? Alex Cora actually did in Houston that he was essentially at the center of the conversation. An that had begun with Carlos Beltran and some of the players about refining. This science stealing Alex was the one according to the report who ask ask employees to install a monitor that could be used right behind the Astros dug out by the way that monitor was located. Did No more than thirty feet where. Aj hinch their manager was standing. No more than thirty feet were. Alex was doing his work bench coach during the course of the game. So basically everybody knew it was there. Everybody I've heard stories in the last forty eight hours about how members of the Astros have reached out to people though the teams comes after the athletic came out with an initial report and tried to assure peers competitors. Hey don't it wasn't that serious that that story was overblown and then when the report came out with the details the other day there is so much anger there are friendships that are fractured. Because of how some members the Astros not only did they cheat back in two thousand seventeen but in the two months that followed the athletic report. They've been lying. Did their peers about what they were doing. Well Chorus reputation like around baseball before this news. He was known as the guy who would hold things together. During a moment of crisis he took over the national team from Puerto Rico leading in the WBZ. He showed such a great way of dealing with players connecting with people at that time the Puerto Rico national team potentially had three shortstop Havi Abayas. Hi as an Francisco Lindor Carlos Correa and among baseball nerds like myself. We were all wondering like how is. How is Alex GonNa work through those Egos you know? How is he going to convince one guy to be the third baseman who got to be shortstop and one got to be the second basement any did it? And when he was the Astros Bench coach in two thousand thousand seventeen men he made such great connections with Alex Bregman at George Springer. They loved Alex Cora the the players loved Alex other people in Baseball. Absolutely love Alex. When the Red Sox officials who put in this position where they have to fire him they talked about that how much that's regard they have for him and I think that's I has been universal leading up to this whole decision? What was he like as a player at the time he was drafted by the dodgers? He was regarded as an excellent prospect but he never really developed into the consistent offensive player that the dodgers thought he was going to be. He carved out this role through a fourteen year career of being a role player but he was smart guy and was always known like Carlos. Beltran is someone who it was really good at ascertaining what the other team was doing with it signs for decades there was an accepted form of stealing signed and that would be the runner standing at second base and figuring out what the catcher signs were there with a lien or with the placement of a hand on a knee they could could convey to the hitter. What the next pitch was? And that's the reputation that he developed early on so he was signed stealing back that he was good. Good at picking up on Pitch Tipping. I'm sure as smart as Alex is. As much experience he had in baseball. He was tremendous. It picked up signs when leading off at second base and potentially relaying back to the hitter so despite that science stealing ability outscore score never really broke through as a player he retired in two thousand eleven as a career to forty three hitter but in twenty sixteen buster he returns to the Big Leagues Leagues as the Astros Bench Coach now Houston is known as extremely progressive forward thinking organization. How much were analytic Atlantic's and video? Apart of course coaching methods it was a lot in terms of what he was responsible for with defensive positioning. I've had conversations with Alex when we would talk about an infielder. Who may be wasn't that good and didn't have that much range and Alex would give me awake and say he'll be fine? We'll put them in the right place. That's part of what he excelled at when he was with the Astros putting a guy in the right spot to make a play a now the Astros under Jeff Luneau always had a rule that reporters could not talk to coaches. They're only organization baseball. That I know of that made that rule. I think in part because they wanted to protect their information. They didn't want the coaches talking about what they were doing. But I think Alex like Brent Strom their pitching coach. Aj hinch. They got a lot of information. A lot of feedback from the front office that they wound up using the culture in the organization has come under a lot of scrutiny really for months now. The commissioner statements singled out. Do you think Cora felt built enabled. Perhaps by the Astros focus on winning at all costs absolutely when you look back at the history of the Astros after Jeff Luneau took over. Boy does this seem inevitable. 'cause I mean they SP- have absolutely skirted right at the edge of of competitive propriety. All the way through when you think about what happened when Jeff took over the team. Not only did they tank. They tanked in a way that no one had ever seen before in baseball. You know in one year I think it was two thousand thousand thirteen. They cut their payroll down to the point. Where only one player on the team at the end of the year was making over a million dollars? One player I know what the commissioner said about the word tanking but I can tell you privately so many executives at that time. We're going to see what they're doing. They are absolutely they're not even pretending to. I have a representative major league product. It was clear from their actions. Then that so long as you wound up winning and you got the number one pick and and you pick Carlos Correa or you wind up with Alex Bregman. That would justify what they did. That same sort of mentality was in play during the stealing stuff
The 2019 Stories That Changed Sports: Baseball
"After some of the concerns in two thousand seventeen that had nothing to do with the Astros actually Major League Baseball did institute new concerted guidelines about electronic signs dealing right. This happened actually before the eighteenth postseason and then really was implemented for nineteen and baseball said in statement. It released to us that there are complaints from from a lot of teams about a lot of other teams and they were hearing all kinds of stuff so they took it upon themselves to require a few different things. One was in eighth second. delay all feeds in the Ballpark so the team could not look at what was going on. Live and decode immediately in that real time sense also. There were additional personnel L. stationed in video rooms major league baseball officials so that if teams were engaged in Shenanigan those mlb people could see that firsthand and even in dugouts in the postseason or personnel. He'll be so they did take some measures and yet there is still a feeling among many in the sport this stuff goes goes on. And what's what's the astor's reaction been to this. They came out with a statement essentially saying that they're going to conduct an investigation in conjunction in with MLB and basically go forward that way now. What they said was regarding the story posted by the athletic? The Astros Organization has begun begun investigation in cooperation. With Major League Baseball. It would not be appropriate to comment further on the matter at this time. Their General Manager Jeff Luneau spoke to reporters and said Dad essentially that but he also said that he doesn't believe there. Two thousand seventeen world series titles should be tarnished reason. We won the world series and twenty seventeen. This was able to Ben Alex Bregman just a lot of great players and they do things the right way and organization. That's what we aspire to do as well and you know as you mentioned sign. Stealing has been part of baseball for a century and even electron examine stealing while against the rules has been suspected from other teams. I didn't have an Evan and I didn't have enough to report which teams were doing. Exactly what but this is not simply astros issue now how far and how extensive it goes which other teams that. I don't know exactly for sure but teams have accused each other of this going to two thousand seventeen. The Yankees and red sox had the apple-watching viewed as entering the digital age with the Yankees accusing the socks of using an apple. Watch to help steal and relay their catchers hand signals the the red sox ultimately refined by Major League baseball for US an Apple Watch in illicit way and that is the last time a team has been penalized for this kind and of conduct the Yankees were fine to at that time but for another kind of thing and last year in the playoffs there was the situation with the Indians in the Astros where the astros were kind of engaging counter surveillance. The reigning World Series Champs are accused of possibly having a mole next to the Indian's dugout. The man in question was removed several times. Thanks for taking pictures and texting and now the Indian cried foul and it never really got anywhere but it was a big incident at the time so this has been going on yes and the Astros Dome of it not there are other teams are suspected that you've heard everything from the man in center field with the white shirt short somehow And using some high technology to do that to a camera in Centerfield with an ipad attached with the hi pad breaking down pitchers grips to determine whether he is tipping and then that information being conveyed all kinds lines of talk all kinds of suspicion. It's tough tougher baseball. Prove as one person pointed out in the article in part because if you come forward and accused the team well maybe your own hands dirty. And that's the problem right. Can you just tell us in two thousand seventeen from the people that you talk to you. How open this wise is at the Astros that people were talking about doing this openly in within the team the team elephant was can't say for sure because I wasn't there wasn't in it but but as you reported it was certainly discussed internally disgust among players among different personnel in uniform? It was a topic because it was being important. It's just the most being employed you talk to a manager and he basically said that this was an issue that permeates the whole league and that the League has done a poor job of policing policing this so in the course of this investigation. I'm not asking you to speculate on the League will do. But what could come out of this investigation. I'm I'm not sure we know that the red sox were find in two thousand seventeen for the Apple Watch so I imagine if they found that the astros committed wrongdoing. That baseball could issue. You find to them.

"alex bregman" Discussed on Pardon My Take
"It was loud and Seattle tonight. Wasn't it was loud. They all talk about that a lot out there. It was very loud a lot of costly delay the delay of game penalties but everyone's talking about the refs about the rap. I I want to jump right into that that call on Clay Matthews hitting Russell Wilson first first of all you should be allowed to hit Russell Wilson in the head because of the NATO bubbles y'all concussion water. He's immune to head to head. It's very clearly shoulder to shoulder on them. That's a reputation in call and also it helps being short so big. Come up for US five ten and a half guys because your head is right there at a normal person shoulder level yeah put his reputation call for Clay Matthews. That's right yeah. I mean that's not dirty. He nobody got it last year. He landed on Kirk cousins to apologize right right which actually in retrospect perspect- like we should have we should have been thanking him for like landing on Kirk cousins the Vikings should have been thanking him and asked him to do it more offering some sense into all right so the game we're on a streak boys to for to it two in a row great Thursday night football games. That was a great game. Even if you WANNA talk about the rest which is fine tighten it was exciting thrilling back and forth. It looks like the seahawks were going to have an all-time choke job with the hey. Let's run like Oklahoma state offense and try to pitch the ball on third and to win. Carson is running for four and a half yards a carry. They got cute with it. At the end of the game they also had at the end of the first half where they missed field goal. Let the rams score touchdown which felt like a momentum swing but the whole game was romantic swings and it was awesome. It was great and it was Pete. Carroll is in rare form tonight. I don't know if you noticed this new thing that PK told us but when he straightened up and down the sidelines you know chopping on that gum. He's doing a thing where he just stares down at the ground in front of him yeah yeah he's so focused. He doesn't care what's going on. He just needs to know the situation will play the he'll call the playoff that he's not looking at the field not looking at his guys. He's just looking at the blade of grass in in front of he's just had yeah. He has it all right there. He just locked in. I also noticed something tonight about the Seattle crowd which was very very loud. I I actually think that Greg Miss Because it was so loud the sound wave yes now. What if it what if a stadium told fans on one side just on the left side of the stadium. Am You guys all blow out at the same time you guys all Fart on the left side of the field all the word there'd be enough air to push feel yes as a physicists yes. Let's try and Cincinnati feed only one half of the state of your sideline. More than ten thousand people know there'll be some people there shoutout Cincinnati for maybe going to the game when the when the bengals are horrific but the Seattle crowd leads the League I think ten years running in and fans wearing receiver gloves every time they show the crowd there's at least four or five fans clapping and receiver gloves and there there is some special place in heaven for the NFL fan that shows up to a game in receivers gloves in the small chance they get some TV time and they can put them together and it makes the logo they also they also have a lot of fans that are dressed up with like a mask on like a bird mask are full whole face paint that aren't sitting in the low rose about like the upper decks. There's a guy that's wearing like a full eagle costume. There has no chance of being on net has never even seen Seena television yet were he doesn't own a house. He doesn't have electricity. He lives in a tent next to I five and he goes to the Games every Sunday during the season wearing a full Falcon Elkin on his face right and I love that I love the Seattle crowd. It's loud I know they pump in crowd noise there. That's a fact we've confirmed that boots on the ground but I say Seattle should be allowed a lot to do it. Yeah I agree I agree. They should definitely be a lot of pumping the noise. I have a question for you. PF T I have an answer okay. This is a narrative thing that's going to be. Guingona on a pre narrative has the NFL caught up with Sean mcvay no okay. I think the correct way to approach this narrative is did bill belichick. Break Sean McVeigh's brain okay. We're not doing to your pod the book the books right now. There's blueprint out there. This is copycat. The League and the Seattle Defense held the rams to twenty nine points the week before the bucks held them to forty points. The defensive has have caught up to Shawn Nicole brain all right so a weird way. I think there's a little bit of panic for the Rams and how they've played their last two games but this game to me Short Week Division opponent on the road. You lose by one. It's not obviously you never WANNA lose but I feel like it was a nice answer from what happened on Sunday against the box and they got a few games coming up. They have the forty niners at home at the Falcons into Bengals at home. They should win all three of them. It's not time to push the panic button yet no way you'll it'll be biomedicine is across the road. The panic button is up in Marina del. Rey and right now. You're on the four ten and you're down in Temecula Thomas Rush Hour. You're not getting Oh. It's rush hour so you're not getting to that panic button for a long time. I do think that it's absurd that Sean mcvay ever misses on a challenge and he had a really bad one. Yes he had a really bad one in the end zone. I think it was woods right. Yup Woods and he clearly didn't get his knee down didn't get his feet down. If you have photographic memory like like Sean mcvay your eyes should just be able to glaze over like a pre cog right and just access that memory in your head. No no we're not. We're not doing that flag. The only other thing I had on this game and I joked about at the start but it does feel like the seahawks have that Mo jo back you know what I mean. They have changed over their entire defense from Bobby Wagner still there but most of their defense has changed over from the Super Bowl team but it feels like they've retooled. They lose Doug Baldwin Tyler. Lockett is the new Doug Baldwin. This fucking Guy Mississippi is actually Disley Zane yet d'isly is insane insane. Luke Wilson caught a ball will luke. Wilson got boys on a two game winning streak. Luke Wilson got the boys out to game winning streak de que metcalf is awesome so I yeah add this. The seahawks fierce person they're back. Chris Carson is really really good as first reported by us. I mean look how many guys were naming on the seahawks clearly there that's right. I think we if you sat me down right now. I I think we just got we could easily get to eleven so Yang right off the bat on Clowney boom done. He's recovered fumbles on his own. He's he's making his own team. Fumble balls that they picked up after he forced a fumble on the other team yes which he is playing like a maniac the jerseys tonight. I some were saying Candy Ass yes. No I say no. They're the color of a poison Arrow frog. You know not to go near him. As a human being goes very at home does at home. They're awesome. They're like VICI- their visual. As Es Amar Yeah they give my eyes goosebumps. It also is like no I I know I know it's not the same. I noticed that the same states but like I always just think you know Pacific northwest the the seahawks the Oregon ducks they can just wear wear weird uniforms absolutely when you get up to that corner of the country you're weird uniform corner. Oh Yeah Michigan State Michigan she can say can they wear no no weird beautiful those type of uniform yeah yeah but those are stupid. Jailer is different. Baylor's like Baylor's Taylor's entire brand is we're. GonNa wear the highlighter uniform correct so the organ of the South in Michigan. It's like you're. You're exotic. Colored Michigan should should be gray yeah maybe a light gray yeah neon gray up in Michigan and that's that's the best that you like the field at eastern Michigan. Yes yeah exactly. That's the that's the swaggie is that it should get looks like Pleasantville. When you watch eastern Michigan Game. He really plays some tricks theorize. Does it's like Schindler's list. When there's that one girl that's wearing the red yeah? That's Pleasantville the village much nicer much. We don't have to talk La- about Troy Aikman real quick yes. He didn't cuss. He's concussed permanently. He uses the term when he talks about Goth. He goes him. Jerry Golf time little shot at Tony Romo. Maybe that also if you take a shot every time he he says Heckuva during a game you're going to end up sounding like Al Michaels by the end of it because you will be fucking hammer well in troy is getting a little bit older older in this happens to broadcasters. It feels like their dialect. Just gets you know gets shrinks as the years go along. I mean I we all remember Phil Simms at the end like it was four words. Yes so I'm not I'm not saying he. I liked Troy Joe. I think that's a great booth but it's going to happen. It happens to all of us. That's why I only talked about Jesus and Hitler his strength so much you hear what he said about Cooper Dad. Oh he likes shamed right. He said he doesn't remember cowboys. Boys back in one thousand nine hundred ninety one cup. I've forgotten all about the La Times. I didn't even know that Craig was Cooper's. Dad The perfect perfect. He definitely owes some some money off of like a card game and I don't even remember that guy. No different never never heard of that guy before we should quickly before we get to the preview of the NFL weekend. Talk a little little playoff baseball the ball PFC's well full full. Let's talk baseball. Tommy lasorda is still alive yup the dodgers here's our wagon. We knew there were wagging the nats the game ended in the seventh or whatever it was when they put in Fernando Rodney because that is the human you know what's it's the opposite of the Human Victory Cigar. It's just the white flag yeah just throwing the towel and when you put Fernando Rodney and I cannot believe he's still in Mlb but yeah the dodgers are awesome awesome and they still have Clayton Kershaw tomorrow yeah well that that could be because we got playoff kershaw. That's why I'm not worried about it game. One as nate pointed out the capitals lost every game one that they played on their way to winning a Stanley Cup so that means that the snow that means how many five game series you know what they play. You know what that means. It can be done yeah. It can be done not giving up hope just yet Fernando Rodney Dot. He did look awesome..

It didn't register in my head when they show the clip of me throwing the fastball, and I blow it by Alex bregman, Dallas. Brayden is in the background said, I'd say kit like he's trying to hype up. Alex bregman who is the number three offense player in major league baseball against his thirty year old washed up blogger co host, like bregman of pep talk. I, I wanna take this time to I. Swings missing. Like what's sometimes you just fall back into old habits. Jared. Despite, you know, you, you see big leaguer. You're like I. This is this, the team, I'm supposed to be on. This is what I'm supposed to be. Cheerful. I got sidetracked sidetracked. I have all out of all the ridiculous thing that happened in that video subtly. That is the most ridiculous thing. I think after rewatching it out to go. I mean I what preposterous stance to take. Got him if I remember correctly, you know, not that you needed to pep talk. But before we walked out, I'm like you. You fucking. Are you kidding me? Got this this, this is no sweat off your nuts right now. You are about to dice up a fucking big leaguer. You got. I feel like I was having that kind that same kind of talk with you right before he showed up. The problem is he showed up. And like I said, just kind of fall back into oh, I guess I'm rooting for bregman the the ball where am I right? What's going on? I kind of blocked out for a little bit. And then came to right. At the point of contact that fateful swing. And. It's one of those things where I know you're not a wrestling fan, but one of the promo packages that they did for undertaker versus Shawn Michaels to or no. Yeah, either undertake. I think it was triple, h undertaker versus triple, h the second one, the undertaker the year before he beat Shawn Michaels, triple h. But he couldn't walk out of the ring that had to like wheel is asked up the ramp on a gurney. Right. Yes. And then they the next year he challenged triple h to a rematch because he's like I didn't beat you good enough. So he just sees watching the replays. He's watching the replays, and he starts cutting his hair off with the straight razor all this. And that's kind of what I did last night watching that video, I was just watching the I had my mic cursor on the point of contact in Iowa. Just click it bang. Click Bank click at Bank. And I watched I watched breath. Gmund hit that ball, a good one hundred fifty times, so there is going to be a rematch someday. And when there is I guarantee you he does not make contact. I guarantee you that of a is this remeasure down in a phone booth because I feel I feel like like. that might be the only place. I would imagine that this rematch could take place in Cleveland on. He'll be there. I got I got no doubt. He'll be there. So, so their civil j j either fuck you better be there better. Be there J. Are you going to be? Yeah.

So there's a lot there. You know, when people talk about that he's one of the potential faces of the game. I don't think there's any question. Alex bregman special in a lot of ways. And you know, this you time covering baseball that there's always that concern, you know. Well, this guy be able to handle the off. Field stuff. Will he be able to balance things Alex's?

"This is for me. I wanted to know is it do you want to be the guy? Do you want to be the guy on this team? You want to be the face of this franchise because right now, I don't know. I it's sort of debatable who face the franchise is you could even include Justin Burley into that conversation beyond just position players. I want to know is this the year, regardless of whether he wants to be or not is this the guy is this the year that Alex bregman who statistically was the best player on the Astros in twenty eighteen is this the year that he establishes himself, as you know, that guy's pretty damn good back is pretty damn good. But I'm great like, I m the guy that when you look at the MVP award for a one hundred plus win Houston Astros team that sure we can we can look at all these great seasons that everyone has compiled but mine will stand out undoubtedly as the best who's the MVP candidate from that team. Alex bregman? I for sure think that when we finished the twenty nineteen season 'cause it was the same last year. He finished fifth. We will see a top three because you know, Mike trout's gonna be in there somewhere. Mookie betts. We don't know. I mean, he's twenty sixteen. Runner up twenty seventeen not really in the picture twenty eighteen he wins it. So as far as consistency. Goes you know, that you're going to have Mike show in that top three Davis met chatman these guys out in Oakland that you got to pay attention to medals and starts spray the ball field. We'll get to that team will pass pass for it now. But when you start thinking about top to tie, I agree. I agree with all of that. And let's be real. He's already got a jump start on the rest of the league on the rest of baseball jeered. He's got a walk. He's got to RBI's. And he's got a Homer. He's swinging it pretty well. And your Yara is through the fucking roof. That's actually, not true at all. Well, you have one I don't. Sorry. My one thing or I guess is. I think it some point in time. Max Tassie going is going to make an impact. I will. I truly truly want to believe that I really and truly do a very just detailed something to look out for. But look out for max Tassie making an impact he does amazing work with the pitching staff talking to some of those guys. And then obviously once the Astros re-signed kaikal. That's that's something to look out for is that that rotation is again ridiculous. I tweeted it when they went out and got their lefty Wade Miley. They got their lefty. It was Wade Miley. Now, you're gonna bring kaikal into that missile. No, it's definitely it's happening. It's happening. Will you brought you brought up my one thing to watch Wade Miley? Okay. There you go because I'm also very interested in the bregman will hear won't he ascension. But Miley is my guy. I think like there's every reason to believe that like with the way that the Astros bring in these pictures, and generally speaking, they don't all become stars. But generally, it seems like they can make a tweak here or add a pitch here and things happen like they develop pitchers at the major league level seemingly better than other organizations not necessarily the brewers. But I think that getting Wade Miley in that situation in in a with an organization that has worked with Dallas kaikal and believe there's some similarities there in terms of what they could be able to do. You and then you combo that with the changes that you already saw from Wade Miley last year that led to his kind of mini breakout. Only eighty innings but two point five seventy RA yet as best Phipps since twenty twelve. So there's underlying support for the season any changes sequence or his pitch arsenal. Yeah. Like he went out any added like a massive amount of cutter usage..

That's less than two weeks away. Each euro the swan song. For each euro in Japan to Seattle manners. That's coming up real soon. And let's just let's just revisit the spikes up to a really quick. Tons of interviews as we mentioned tons of video content coming perhaps you noticed that. I challenged Alex bregman to alive aby at Astros camp. Did you see my tweet Dallas was busy delivering a baby girl. So I don't know if you saw this tweet, but we did the math. We quids on the second floor is a math whiz. We had them calculate what the perceived velocity is for the pitch that Alex bregman put on the moon. What do you think it was Dallas? I don't know I'm guessing like if like I'm gonna say we were probably somewhere between like. Like thirty eight feet away. Maybe maybe forty feet like I don't know how close like I was just kind of talking shit when I was walking these steps off. But I would say we're roughly in that zone. So I would say I don't know like like a hunt one hundred fifteen hundred twenty miles an hour somewhere in there. Yeah. So what we did was we calculate it the pitch that bregman hit to the moon, which if you haven't seen that video go check it out. It's on the blog page. Dallas is I don't think Dallas has like Dallas tweeted going to Starbucks, and then he'll just include the video of like he'll just tweets shit that has nothing to do with the home run and just put the video in there. Anyway. So it was an eighty two mile an hour fastball from those civilised city. It was eighty two mile an hour fastball. We estimated forty two feet. So based on sixty feet six inches it. It was a perceived velocity of a hundred seventeen point eight five miles an hour. That's what he saw. That's why I was like this is a math genius on the second floor of barstool. You say, right. He used to work for NASA. So at least we at least that background. Jabel in your rate is Jared that makes him a genius. Yes, we had them. Do it. Do the math a hundred and seventy Alex bregman squared up a one hundred eighteen mile an hour fastball. The major league quivalent where the fuck up and in like if you go back and slow it down. This was not a right down the dick fastball. This was a Lohan away outside corner at the knees. And it was he was almost like out in front. I mean, it's amazing. It's amazing that he got to it. But he got to it. Yeah. I there's no like I told you this. What did you things had to happen? What things -absolutely had to happen? You needed to go up there? And just I mean Jimmy Gimmie three four just by him. Maybe fell one off. And sit down that would have been sexual. I didn't happen. It didn't happen. But what else could have happened was exactly what happened you working AB there some strike zone controversy, and then and then oh my God. Why the culmination of everything I mean, I wouldn't be surprised, and I don't know there's been rumblings there's been rumblings that should bregman. Go deep in Boston. There could be a a special homerun celebration. I dunno. I dunno. Like, I don't know what maybe maybe someone is crossing home plate somewhere in section..

"Now by speaking Astros, third baseman, Alex bregman, Alex, thanks for joining us. Mantilla mobile is bringing back home runs for hurricane recovery, five thousand bucks for every home run hit in the playoffs. Plus one dollar for every post on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag HR for HR they pick the right guy to rep this Alex. What makes this 'cause close to you buddy? Well, last year we saw firsthand here in Houston with the hurricane and everyone that was affected, and we saw how we were able to kind of raise the city up when it was going through some tough times. So since then for about the last year partner of t. mobile and team Rubicon and able to try to help out in any way we can with with hurricane relief. And t mobile is done on believable job with home, runs for hurricane relief. And hopefully this year we can hit some home runs and raise more money to help these families that were affected. Well, obviously you've gone hot and help that. 'cause in Ben helping the cause for the Astros throughout the month of October, what's really been the key for you? Well, I think I think just really being on being on this team with the the great teammates that I have been able to pick out to as brain craze brain. And you know when when when this offense gets role in you wanna keep up and it's fun. And hopefully while I know for a fact that we're back back to full strength now everyone's healthy and it's going to be a fun run. Hopefully eleven more wins to are are back to back World Series championships fall in the AL MVP conversation. I don't know as actually the first time I've been asked that trying on on on record, so I don't know, depends on depends on what you look at. Definitely say Mookie Betts, believable year, Mike trout, an unbelievable year. So somewhere in there with those two. Well, I think we should just lobby for you. I mean, it's tumble of you, Alex, the humility. I, I want to get back to something. You mentioned though. When you talked about this, 'cause for you and what Houston sort of went through last year. It caught the nation's attention with you guys going through that run when Houston was going through so much for this year. Obviously, you know that the reasons he bias of that, it just it's not as prevalent in everyone's mind. So how do you sort of recapture that level of emotion going into this playoff often hotel you? One thing. We one hundred and three games this year. So we were able to secure home-field home field advantage for the first round and. I promise you when when when the guy's not clubhouse feel the electricity of our fans in the stands on on game one when Verlinden takes on kluber, I think I think we're well. We'll feel right back at home where where we, where we feel very comfortable in the postseason and in that atmosphere and we'll, we'll remember Houston strong for sure. Seeing teams that when the World Series one year sort of have the the World Series hangover the next year you guys you one hundred and three games, but you still had to sort of got it out and fight it out with Oakland. There was the points in August where you guys had that ten game stretch. We lost eight including two of three to Oakland during that time. What did you guys learn about yourselves at the team. I'll tell you this team. We we. We did have a World Series hangover. We we only one hundred three games. I think we're capable of winning one hundred twenty one hundred twenty five to be honest with you. If with that's how that's how confident we are in in in this team when we're pulse strength and well, two, they went down. Correa went down, Springer went down and and we we managed to win a hundred and three games. So the Oakland Athletics, they had a, they had a magical run at a division title, but they they got, they got a tough one with the Yankees coming up. So I think I think our division is is ours for the fertile for the future. And I think we're gonna. We're gonna own LS for awhile.

"alex bregman" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Alex bregman, of course, also responsible for another walk off win where he reached on an error to the catcher, Jonathan Luke road, threw the ball away down the line. So expressman two of his five most valuable plays the season have been just complete defensive catastrophes. Absolutely. No reason for them to. Have happened, and I was thinking about this now out of the race, what is going to win the VP? I don't have a vote for the MVP 'cause I think Mukhi bets more reasonable case to win the award. But if you were to talk about Alex bregman as the American League MVP one argument would be that, well, he has been his numbers reflected that he has been clutch the season. He's been respond. He's big. He's started plays that wound up being clutch for his team, but like if you have this pop up this ridiculous. Is there anything more symbolic than Eric hosmer? The Padres biggest investment that they're ever gonna make for as long as it's starting and it's not all his fault, and sometimes you just lose the ball. It's fine. I don't hold this against her too much, but just stand there in the ball drops. I think it was behind him and bregman wins the game. And then everyone it's like the answer should have come out of the dugout and just circled Eric hosmer because he is really the player who's responsible for that walk off win. But yeah. What do you, what do you do for value? They're like if you're talking about the MVP and that's a walk off win. That's. Half of one win. Basically the Redmond's ball in play gave the Astros in that circumstance. What do you do with that much credit? You give to experiment for out, right? Yeah. I don't know. Sam tweeted the other day that bregman has made the less out of game three times this year. And he has four walk-offs which I don't have check how rare or impressive that is, but somewhat impressive. And yeah, that play. I don't know. I mean, if you were going by like expected weighted on base of Alex bregman bet at ball, it would be extremely low putt. In that case, that's what happened and have we even talked about hosmer this year like we haven't even mentioned him really, and it's funny because he signed this eight year contract, one of the biggest free agents and he had a supper placement level season according to fan graphs, and that is so not notable that we haven't talked about. It was like, of course, I mean, did anyone expected to be good that really. Like, I mean, we thought he might be decent, but no one thought he was actually good even though the Padres did. And so the fact that he's been below league average hitter not for the first time and that he's been a supper placement level player, not for the first time, not shocking, I guess disappointing because there were some hope at least that he had found a slightly new level of last year, but no, not at all. So yeah, not anything. And you know, it's been easier to work as one air Cosma hasn't been like Chris Davis level bed and also the Padres haven't been anywhere close to the race. I would just hasn't really mattered that much. But yeah, in the early stages of becoming a disaster, like cosmos, forgotten how to be a good player. And I was kind of doing that, like I guess, like odd year, magic kind of thing, lick reverse San Francisco Giants where he's just gone from replacement level, the good to replacement level. Good doesn't make any sense.
