"american league west" Discussed on The MLB Show
"Some of the money, Bruce was never going to be in their long-term plants. Anyway, you're remember when they were what thirteen and two and people during people were wondering if they keep the supper, they going to continue with their plans to reload, and definitely, they are now twenty five in thirty eight they're in last place in the American League West, and I think it's pretty clear that they're hot start will not interfere with any long term plans that might have had. No, I we I think we call that one pretty correctly at the time, we had Meg on the show and she said, well, let's talk about this now before before it goes away. And it did pretty rapidly. So, yeah, this is, is certainly a big name. But at this point, this is your member. Jason Jami guy signed every off season by one team in and moved around traded every July, Jim Thome, e the same thing for a couple of years is maybe not that quality of, of. Career, but I think a similar role that you would expect Jay Bruce, ply. I mean it's his third time in the last four seasons that he's moved mid season. So as pretty impressive pattern, he's collecting he's collecting a lot. You see in the world man, you know, there's, there's something to be said for that. I think, you know, one thing that I always found interesting about the life cycle of a professional athlete is those those athletes who may be Jay Bruce, as at this guy because he's been traded so many times, but there is an opportunity like experience a lot of different things. If you're just sort of bouncing around at the end of your career, you know, like, if you're the, the aging soccer player goes and plays in China for a year and then comes to MLS and goes to the Middle East or something like that. I think there's something attractive about that. If you're wired that way. Apply for a personality. So Philadelphia as far afield as China in the Middle East, you, you could make that argument. It's it's that far field for somebody. All right. Let's move onto you want to talk about the Texas Rangers. I want to talk a little bit about the Colorado Rockies easer teams that have sort of moved into they moved from also ran status to slightly less also ran like you could see them maybe not closing down the teams. They're chasing because the dodgers and Astros have been so good. But there they're edging their way back in their respective wildcard races. Yeah. And I think these teams have a lot of similarities in my mind in terms of how they're constructed. They are pretty much led by their offense in an offensively oriented ballpark, but they're starting pitching outside the top two has been abysmal for both teams in Colorado, you have her mom Marquez who's built on his hot run at the end of last season. John gray has pretty much bounced back from last year, but beyond them the. The Rockies rotation has taken giant all freely went from went from fourth and Cy Young voting to era of seven. How did this happen? Yeah. He was demoted. And then in Texas, you have kind of similar orientation. My good to say the name say the name. Lance lynn. Yes. I know this is funny because Michael does not necessarily believe in fep he is more of Iraq. He is more of an era guy. But Lance Lynn his era, is four point five, which is not great. His fifth is three point one seven. And if you look at fan, graphs pitching war, which is based on fifth. Lance Lynn is the sixth most valuable pitcher in baseball this year sandwiched between Marquez and hinge in Rio. So Lance Lynn has been incredible Mike minor has been quietly. One of the better pitchers in baseball for a year and a half now. But also, they have nobody beyond those two, either I can't really see Texas, especially keeping this up, Joey Gallo is out for a bit now after injuring, I think, is oblique over the weekend, which is a bummer because he's been a terror this season. So I can definitely see Texas falling out as soon as we talk about them. But right now, they're in the second wildcard spot, and that's a pretty impressive starts talking about them while they're there. Exactly a team that I think nobody really assumed would compete especially in that division..
"american league west" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Up into Rondo the raptors with a two point lead late in the first quarter in game two of the NBA finals time to shift gears talk a little baseball and joining me on the program right now. He covers major league baseball for the southern California news group JP horn straight. Joining me on CBS sports radio JP pushy eight, you're making time for, for a few minutes, talk, some baseball, I'm looking here right now the Marlins and the Padres delay. Twenty eight minutes by bees. Have you ever heard of the game being delayed by insects before? Been a little while. I thought he sat today. Padres had to be like ten years ago that one was a fifty two minute delay. So it seems like major league baseball pays the play initiatives. They're working. Yeah. I've always wondered why more players don't go to San Diego because it's such a beautiful city to do anything in let alone play baseball, but I guess, maybe if I was going to get attacked by bees, once or twice a season that would make me think twice about it. I guess probably to probably probably so, so I'm actually based out of Houston JP. And I'm just curious how many of the all stars on the Astros need to get injured before the American League West can start making up some ground on these guys. Oh boy, that's a really good question. If you saw the score out of Seattle today, but the Mariners certainly are going anywhere fast. That's quite a bit of the age of this year. I don't think they're quite as good as that final score indicated the it had a pretty good streak. Canada. Well they play angels earlier this week. But they've been up down the Rangers are for real, but you know pleasant surprises there. But there's no team nearly as the Astros in the American League West, it's really fight for second place and we see with the Astros got each of the last three years, they're really just picking up where they left off. I think you have to be impressed consistency. And I think you have to be oppressed office really committing to that nucleus because remember that wasn't a team to spend a lot of money for quite a bit of time during that rebuild. They stopped with their core during the growing pains when they were young they're sticking with him now and they're a little bit better and cost a little bit more. So just a neutral deliver. That's that's good to see a award. It's fan base for that. No doubt in for those you don't know the as the as they could cut into the gap this weekend. But the Astros swept them, you know, clind, so the lead up to up to ten and a half in the American League West P horns, joining me on CBS sports radio talking a little MLB union, interesting article JP. Something we're very familiar with your in Houston because George Springer although he's on the injured list right now his been a power hitting leadoff hitter for the Astros through this period of dominance, going back to before they were winning World Series. He was a leadoff hitter in a lot of people here in Houston kinda role. There is a little bit about it through the years and watching and put a power numbers. But the surgeon power number's major league baseball and more teams now sort of following that trend of going away from the traditional lineup and leadoff hitter to more kind of frontloading the lineup to get your best hitters near the top that being a big deal in terms of impacting these offense numbers take us through some of the things that you found out in putting that piece together and how much. Why did it take major league baseball so long to kind of figure out? Hey, the more we get our better hitters near the top of the line of the runs. We might score. Profound of an idea when you put it that way. Does it? When I push that topic, I had to thoughts in mind, I was sort of when and how did this idea take root in the second was how much does it really matter? Like, how much does it actually affect? The home run totals, which I really primarily discussed in the context of physical properties in the baseball for good reason. Things on both of those, the idea around and I talked to Walt Weiss the former manager of said that kind of pressured him to put Choi to whiskey as you lead off hitter. This is you know five years ago until the whiskey was one of the best hitters in baseball. Like that idea wanted to give the lineup but gradually over the last two years. I think you've seen for offices. Start to get the upper hand on that managers. They hadn't got along with it. I saw the dodgers that same week that, that article came out, they had jock Petersen. Daddy, I get it eighteen today. Belgium, batting second, twenty first run earlier, I think yesterday. So this is really being in your dorm, and as far as the second question, how much is it impacting, the home run rate? The answer is more than ever, but still not a lot. What you find is that when you sort of it out, you can in twenty seventeen let's go back there. That was the record year for home runs. Major league baseball and what you've found is that just by virtue of how managers set their lineup. We've built in, I wanna say about sixty some odd home over the course of the season, and, and it's gonna be almost double that this year. So, you know, get it's not maybe that much in the grand scheme of six thousand plus Hct leaving the ballpark. But, you know it makes you difference in. Huge difference I found you brought up at won't. I'm glad you brought up the wall Weiss, quote from the p shroud. Really good piece by the way, and I, I laughed at that just because it was still indicative of sort of that old school mentality leadoff hitter has to be a speed guy. And then the three four and five hitters need to be power guys, just sort of that old school way of thinking, generally speaking, not just through the findings of your article, but just as someone who observes major league baseball everyday where would you say we're at right now, in terms of managers being sort of instinct, with I feel like front offices are more progressive in their thinking, maybe than the manager's down on the field are where would you say we all right now overall in baseball in terms of managers kind of embracing the new way of thinking both across lineup assembly as well as use of pitching staff. Let's think about it this way to the front office holds a very distinct advantage in that the general manager, choose of miniatures manager, just shoes general managers. So if the general manager wants to put somebody in that managers, who will embrace a more progressive idea, and who will be open to change if the data the office is sending a lot of dollars then power to, to gain some advantage with put that guy, the manager, that were than anything is what you're seeing so much that the managers are evolving, in their thoughts as, as more progressive minded, general managers, come in. They're bringing new more progressive minded managers with you know there's a reason why she's probably the bench coach. Manager Violeta bridge. Bride snicker told me he likes the I'll be able to give him a one, and I would I would also push back somewhat out told me this very progressive general manager in Atlanta, that, you know, we might be seeing a different trend if there were more traditional, you know, speed I hitters in major league baseball, the matter is, it's not like he got Ricky Henderson Coleman. And Kenny Lofton just lying around in organizations just waiting to called up. Guys, really are far between so it could be that, that tread will change if we get more of those pets players. But right now read driven game and a lot of those guys are laid off GT horn covers MLB for the southern California news group before let you go JP, too big names out there on the free agent market that this. Is a significant week for them because the MLB draft will be in the books this week, and they don't have to worry about their whoever signs them have any draft compensation Dallas and Craig kimbrel. If you were a betting man, where would you guess that each of these guys winds up? Oh boy. Well. I think we look at the age and you look at some of this steps that they've made it tree agency. Trevor he'll that Harvey who really haven't been productive in the rotation. Getting Cody Alex really hasn't been closer that they envisioned. I think that that could be good fit for either kimbrel or Dallas Tikal, and the only question there, whether they outsource the money to spend to compete with some other teams that, that, that would help certainly the Mets could use either pitcher, the New York Yankees would probably go out and spend on either pitcher giving their resources. There's three teams right there all the Phillies bullpen not do so, well, just a few minutes to go here in Los Angeles fit for timbale. You know, I it's really a Chea question I think going to come down to the money and who has the best for guys you probably want to win. Veteran pitchers. And, you know, we'll see where that goes, it'll be interesting to see where they both led it went because I know a lot of teams are prepping for the draft which obviously begins tomorrow. Yeah. Real quick, because we got about forty five seconds with respect to both of those guys. We know the probably not going to get the money they were originally seeking otherwise they would be on teams right now. What kind of deals do you think they're gonna get in terms of length or these guys who were just hired guns for the rest of this year, and they go back into free agency next year? Do you think they wind up with multi year deals? I think they wind up with multi your deals. I don't think they I you know, agents are generally more competent sitting too, so I don't think that you would hold out for lesser. I don't see that happening. Remember to a huge reason that their market was suppressed, because they were tied to drag it, cost and sation. It'd be the case of midnight eastern time tonight. So I if they're. Total dollar value. Outlay doesn't go down that much because really drastic station that I was holding a lot of general manager staff. Yeah, no doubt, especially the closer the draft guide. For sure. JP horn. Stra MLB reporter for the southern California news group JP, enjoy the conversation and keep up the great work in. We'll do it again down the road. You got a good stuff JP. Thanks for thanks for coming on the mix in a little baseball as the NBA finals go on in the background thirty to twenty eight. Last I looked the, the rafters leading the warriors to the raptors still still grinding away, getting it done right now with the Golden State Warriors, who had boogie cousins in the starting lineup. He was out there for I don't know how many minutes he was out there for, but only played eight minutes in game one so they're basically just redistributing what paltry minutes cousins can give them. They're gonna need huge games. They're gonna need huge games. Out of Klay Thompson, Steph curry, Draymond green has been much better. At least from my glances down at my phone as I stream it here in the studio. He's been better this game. And he wasn't game one. I know in a triple double in game one. But it was the worst triple double that we've ever seen in NBA history, eight five, two, four, CBS, man. That's three hours in one.
Major League Baseball Preview: It's Opening Day 2019
"Opening day, and I cannot wait Madsen Yanks get everything started at one on five. I realize Harrison I was just looking over the schedule before the Mets and the and the Yanks are the only to apply at one zero five tomorrow one a Yankee actually one Mets for one zero five and then the other games will follow throughout to go around major league baseball right now, we welcome. And Scott Miller who's a national baseball columnist for Bleacher report scout amongst other things Scott happy opening day. I mean, this is this is a great grey day for baseball fans everywhere. A big slate of exciting action all across major league baseball. It is happy opening day to you as well. And yeah, it's it seems like it can't get here. Quick enough. I always say, you know, baseball more than any other sport has brings with it something that is unique that nothing else can say that simply as opening day equates. To the promise of summer, the promise of the last day of school is very close. It's getting closer. And who doesn't like the thought of summer vacation and whatever else and thought of war nights at the ballpark. Yeah. I mean, there's a lot of things that go into the other thing I would add to that. Scott would be the fact that you know, you have it there for you pretty much every night for the next six months, it's different than opening night and football way opening week, whatever it is. And then it goes away for a few days. And then it's once a week baseball. Once it starts, it is six months of basically there for you every single night. And that's what I love about it. Yeah. No question. I mean, I I know, you know, even you know going back as a kid growing up in Michigan. I grew up about thirty miles south of Detroit so back then I followed the Tigers. And, you know, just, you know, your kid, and you can't you know, you don't have your driver's license yet or anything. Thing every night the summertime you had a friend. You had you had your Tigers. In my case on TV. College. I had a great summer job at a state park in Michigan. Yeah. During my summers off in college and state park, quite often. I would be a permit but without front as cars came in. I take their money, you know, the three bucks or whatever cost command and a state park was over near lake eerie and not only were you outside in the summer. But I had a radio in that booth and I worked at three thirty to eleven thirty shift and listen to music up until about seven or seven thirty. And then I click over to hurry. You know him and Paul Carey telling me all about whatever was going on with the Tigers at night. And you're right. It every night every day there there there's something that just build slowly. And slowly, you know, like a great book read a chapter, maybe grabs you, then the next one. And then you go on and what the Mets in particular. And you're right. I mean, that's that's the beauty of what the Mets in particular. You get excited early on because the Mets own opening day. Matter of fact, they've won thirty seven of the west forty nine last year. They started started twelve and to Scott and everybody at least around here. At least myself I was excited about this ball club in and then they went into the tank naturally. So that book got pretty bad in a hurry. You look at this meds ballclub in the National League east in particular. Where do you rank the Mets right now in the NFL is heading in opening day? You know, I it not deduct a question. But is that's what's gonna be fascinating about the summers. I think anywhere from first to fourth. I mean, you know, depending on health depending on the way things go, I mean, you know, the National League east more than any division of the game. You had teams trying to better themselves trying to to to you know, deliver that knockout punch in the wintertime with trades and free agent signings. Dom, you know, I mean the nationals I think everybody talks about them losing Bryce Harper. And the funny thing there is I think a lot of people are kind of dismissing the nationals because hey, they lost Bryce Harper. That kid want. Soto is great Victor rollerblades is coming out. They're going to be good Phillies made their moves Atlanta won the division last year. You know, I like what the Mets did. I think they they they they made some smart moves. You know, obviously you start with the pitching. Graham, and how about the ground versus shirts or the mile. I mean talk about a great opening day matchup but him center, Dr Wheeler. I like getting Edward D as I mean, people Robertson knows the bigger name. I, of course, still and people say, oh, can I was going back to New York? But Edwin d as the this kid was as good a closer was in a game last year for Seattle. That's a great addition. You know? Behind the plate. You know? Wilson ramos. I think there's some promise, and it's gonna take health and has gonna take some, you know, smart play and Conforto needs to continue to improve. But you know, like, I said without doc in the question. I mean, I thanks go. Well, I think they're gonna content put it that way. I think you'll see a fourteen horse race down into the last into August and September and how about the National League overall. We don't need to go into the specifics of each division here. But you mentioned Al the National League east can be in the brave yet through the defending champs and natural good even without harbor Phillies. Clearly better their lineup on paper looks loaded Mets made some improvements. So those four teams should be battling there. I mean, you look at the rest of the National League. How do you feel the central is gonna plan everybody? I know loves the cubs this year people high in the cardinals brewers are pretty darn good. You're talking now we just went over to divisions in there are seven teams potentially to be the playoffs even with the reds improving. I still don't think that they're realistic realistic. To be playoff team. And then in the west I mean, yeah. At least have two or three teams fighting for the postseason. So Scott when you look at it, how do you see the wildcard plan out? I mean, you could give me the divisions. I but in the National League the Walker is going to be intriguing. Yeah. It is. Because you're you're right. I mean, you know, the cubs ninety five or more games. I think for four years in a row at you know, they they have a really good team. You know, the one team I'm keeping an eye on. I I'm not so sure about no walkie. I mean on paper, they look really good. But they're one team that kind of disrespect starting pitchers. I mean, they're they're success last year aside from the smart moves to get Renzo Kane and Christian yelich their success. Was that bullpen was phenomenal. Josh Hader is back and going to be really good. But you know, Jeremy Jeffress has a sore shoulder. Corey knievel sore elbow to start the year. Those were two guys that played a big role in that broke in the bullpen. So my question with the brewers. I think for them to repeat last year. They've got to have the bullpen pitch. Every bit as good as it did last year. And I'm not sure both sides are so volatile. I'm not sure if they're going to be able to match what they did last year. So, you know, that's why I'm watch wants Milwaukee. Cincinnati. Please is gonna hit like a zillion home runs in that ballpark. He's probably gonna drive the rats crazy with some of his antics. They'll be fine. Say Lewis is gonna be good doubt. Dodgers everybody talks about Clayton Kershaw unavailable for opening day because he's opening on the injured list, but they're pretty deep. And I think they still are the favorites in the National League West Colorado's right there. Again, you talk about all the teams that are contenders. I'm not sure. But I tell you what for the first time in ten or fifteen years, the Padres have become relevant. Manny machado. It's gonna be fascinating to see what he does especially after playing the villain, and I told her and I was shocked. You know, the Padres went the opposite way of what most teams do keep the kids in the minors to buy an extra year of service time delay free agency. They call up their kid Fernando taste junior is going to be the opening day lineup playing shortstop tomorrow as well. Next Chato and he's juniors right there next to Blad. Gratitude here is one of the best prospects of the game. So you know, everywhere you look a lot to be excited for we're talking about Scott Miller national baseball columnist for Bleacher report. Yeah. And that's Scott. Normally I feel like you could read the predictions from everybody in America that writes these predictions. Are you looking at it yourself? It's hard to pick against the teams who are consistently. They're hard to knock off the cobs hard to knock off the nationals. The dodgers, then maybe you take one or two different teams making the playoffs this year in the National League in particular when you look at it going into the year. Maybe I'm wrong. Greg me, if I am I see more parody than ever before you can make a scenario as we just mentioned a bunch of different teams. I wouldn't be shocked if any of those different scenarios happens where you can have three to four teams in each division competing for playoff spots. Yeah. I think that's true. I think that's that's healthy for baseball. Because I, you know, look we're coming off a season where attendance dropped about four percent last year and seventeen of thirty teams saw tennis declines. And there are various reasons for that. You know baseball will tell you a big part of the reason is the April and may weather last year in the east and midwest was really bad, cold, rainy and fans just didn't want to come out. I'm sure that's a contributing factor last year. Was the first year in baseball history. Whenever more strikeouts than hits. I think the way the games being played right now is a contributing factor to attendants declining. But the third contributing factor in my opinion, is you know, we've reached that stage. You know, we were tanking is kind of gotten away from that a little bit this year. But if you want to say tanking or rebuilding clubs have realized the middle's the worst place to be if we can't win we need to strip things down and rebuild. And I think too many teams in the last couple of years have have done that. And so what you've gotten is is, you know, fans in number of cities losing interest in the game because their local team is trying so hard it's basically stripping down rebuilding. So the fans are like, well, what's there to be excited about what you just said in the National League to that last point? I think finally in the National League at least you're right as you look. Around. You don't see, you know, a third of the league or more rebuilding. You see teams that they think they can win in that are giving their fans reason to hope and that is not the case. Of course in the American League's we transition narrow let's start with the American League east. Let me ask you this way. More concerned with the Yankees injuries slash starting rotation or the Red Sox bullpen heading into the year. Yeah. It's Baltar concerns. I you know, I I pick the Red Sox to win the division last year. And I'm leaning that way this year because I respect that Red Sox rotation. Chris sale, David price report, Selo and company. And also, I think the Red Sox where I like him last year, and I still sort of do that lineup. I think there are back at more strikeouts than hits in the game. There are fewer strikeouts. In the Red Sox lineup there. It's a nice mix of power in contact hitters on base guys guys that can put the ball in play. Whereas, you know, as we know the Yankees lineup is really exciting. But at Tanah homers, and and you guys are going to strike out a bunch. So that's sad. I would give the edge the Red Sox, but they didn't bring Craig kimbrel back Joe Kelley was under rated and that bullpen last year. He was a free agent went to sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers. So. So the Red Sox bullpen is a work in progress. I tell you what. There's a chance that bullpen could make Alex Cora. Look not so smart after they made him look really smart in his debut season. As manager last year, you give the raise any chance to make ninety games for goodness sake or ago. Yeah. I think so I mean, you know, look Blake's now, you know, part of the fun. This year is is is is is it is every year is finding out. You know, what our guys gonna certain guy's gonna do for an encore Blake Snell is one of those. I mean Cy Young winner last year phenomenal. But the baseball history is stacked with all kinds of you know, one hit wonders guys that were great one year. And then they they did repeat the m-. The thing about baseball. It makes it so difficult is, you know, the the Mark of a great player is consistency over a number of seasons. You know, when you turn a guys baseball card over, you know, the statistic line. Doesn't jump out at you from one year. But rather over five six seven years is pretty consistent. And that's what Blake's now is going to have to build this year. He's got to build on what he started last year. And that's gonna be interesting. I liked the addition of Charlie Morton, former Houston Astro into the rotation in Tampa Bay that's going to help. They got some good things going on Tampa Bay.

Tell me where my power rankings fell flat. Eight five five two one two four CBS want to hear from you. Start in danville, California, Dan and danville. What's up, brother? You're on CBS sports radio. What's up? Thanks for taking my phone. Call. Shortchanging the as three team right in the power rankings from the National League central and you're not even giving the as one spot. I mean, they're breathing down the neigh- the Yankees next for the top wildcard spot. And they're still not out of it. Take the American League West. I mean, you you gotta give them a little bit more or less than that bad. Dan. I can't disagree with you. Here's what I'm gonna do. Here's do Dan just for you. I am going to give you I'm going to reassess myself. I'm gonna I'm gonna give myself a grade. Here's what I think about me right now because at that point you made cell. Yeah. Sell come on you're better than that. And to I'm going to retroactively do something. I'm like time travel bear. Hey, Tom gets. We're doing it. Now. No three way tie number five of the power rankings cards, and as you can't amend the power rankings amended baby west coast called in. What do you mean? I can't imagine that they're my power, right? It is your show. But I just feel like once that segment it goes to break, you know. Yeah. Yankee. They're out. They're out down. Dan, make some good points. The as a played really good baseball. They've won eight to ten they've won six in a row. They're playing really the problem is the difficulty for me and putting the team in the power rankings from the wildcard side and just bear with me for a second. Because I know that the cardinals and the brewers are kind of, you know, push back against this. Is it such a coin flip the reason I walk in Saint Louis in there's they had the second and third best record in the National League. It actually sort of game to game with Atlanta. And and they're tied. Right. So it's like a I had to pick one. Technically, Dan, I should probably go with the Yankees over Oakland. Because the Yankees had the one game lead in that wildcard spot, technically. But I love call. I I like being called out eight five five two one two four CBS the phone number it, then this is my see I'm on. And I'm not even trying to hate on baseball. And I'll talk to JIMBO about this in a minute. But one of my issues of the sport is right now there are about six or seven markets that matter in the country, right? If you're a baseball fan take Tom Di Benedetto on the board, social producer producer underscored Tom on Twitter where Mets at and the Mets are not a very good baseball team. I know it he knows everybody knows it. But they do have the most dynamic pitcher in the game. A guy in Jacob degrom who's a stud. There's a conversation about whether or not he's going to win the Cy Young award any other sport. Right. You're putting up those LeBron James is and this would never have to play a bad career. Russell westbrook. This. She sort of did happen is. Doing a triple double every single week. Let's say it wasn't on a plane bound team even the National Football League. If you had a guy who was trying to rush for twenty five hundred yards for the first time in the history, the NFL even if his team was about to win four games. You would watch those games. I make a point. Well, my favorite things to do. Come December on league path in the NBA is to watch bad basketball teams, not because I'm attracted a bad basketball teams. But because they always have the most interesting players on the floor, the interesting young guys Janas onto the of for years ago, Milwaukee I'm really interested in the Andrea eight and this year. I don't think I don't think Phoenix. It'd be that good. I mean, Tom, I know you watch Mets games. But you're not under any sort of allusion delusion that the Mets are relevant even though they have a guy that's a start this year. No. I mean, that's a problem for the sport. Yeah. I would totally agree. And they have two guys that are actually relevant every time they pitch and the team is still not relevant who's the other one. No. Oh, yeah. Actually my fantasy team. But I also tuned out of that. I love baseball. And I watch more not. On the cubs fan. Right. I watch more. And I actually I say I'm not a dodgers fan. But I spent so many years around it and talk about every day and be important of that fan base and going to spring training that I want them to win. I watch LA dodgers games. A lot of cubs games. I would say I watch a lot more non teams I root for games in most the average sports fan like most watched their team. I don't think I've seen to ground pitch in. I certainly haven't seen a pitch since June. I just have a watch Mets game. I was just thinking I'm so guilty of how many of his starts. I missed this summer, and I am a Mets fan, but you know. It's just that kind of season a miserable thing to turn on for anybody a Mets fan or certainly anybody else. Why would anyone else put on the Mets even to watch the ground? It's even even when the cubs are watching a lot of times. I'll be like what doesn't happen. Very often. They're going to win that game. I'm gonna watch the dodgers game. I'm more interested in like dodgers Rockies or whatever's going on it's bad for the sport. I think it's a problem. Eight five five two one two four CBS is the phone number here on the show on this Thursday. We will. Of course, keep you updated on ravens Bengals that game. Just under way looks like Joe flacco Inco are going to start with the ball. I'll say this about tonight's game. As it gets going. It's a pick a more or less. I think the wind Marta moved into move to minus one. Did it move to Baltimore minus one? I got him as a pick em I part of the so there's two reasons I like Baltimore tonight. And I say this with the caveat, very few of us know anything about the National Football League at this point other than the really obvious things. We know Buffalo's bad we know the Vikings and the eagles and the patriots are good, but on the margins and wherever the surprise is kind of wait for us. It takes a while for the NFL to usually reveal itself. Yeah. Baltimore's mine is one today. However, however, Marvin Lewis is still the head coach of a team that has not won a playoff game ever in his career. He is the second longest tenured coach in the National Football League after Bill Belichick sixteen years guys ever wanna playoff game doing regular season games. I can't put my money on that kind of a guy and to flacco actually has some receivers for the first time in a long time as disposal, and I was gonna ask Stuart about this. I know Michael Crabtree. Something like eighty two years old, but he didn't look bad in that last game, and Amari Cooper, man. He looks like I know that Gruden through one of the bus would you right now just for this season in a vacuum. Would you trade? Would you give up Mark Cuban have Michael Crabtree back for Justice season yet? Doesn't know burying go back in time. Have Mark Uber year from now this season. Yeah. Right now, Microsoft us a better receiver. I don't know what's going on with Cooper. I mean, he had such a good year or a couple years ago. But the last year in this first game, which is a disaster, Stu, I I wanna I wanna go to your coach John and I want to hear because like the thing about Gruden that. I that I respect right. It's like you lose things go badly your car throw three interceptions in a head coach for whom the game passing by with throws got onto the bus a head coach who who's lost his edge, and is living off charm. But no substance will be like, oh, Amara Guber was open. You know, a head coach who styles himself a quarterback guru. But actually is just a group promoting himself in ruining a team collects way too much money would throw that lead into the bus. And I'm sure so you're really happy. Then and said, this is what Jon Gruden did Amari head at one cashier at one call back. We went to on three or four other times. Ball didn't go there. We had more first downs in the second half had more time a possess. Russian, perhaps, we would've seen more Cooper. But you look at the film. We had them. Open wide open deep. We didn't go there. He was open a couple of times. And for whatever reason we didn't go that route. Ooh. Snap. I should have listened to that before. That's that's the exact opposite of what I said is the worst. What is Gruden doing? All right. If you want.
New York Yankees 'got to get rolling,' says Aaron Boone, as wild-card lead shrinks to 1 game
"The New York Yankees what the apex and AVI? Low shrinking into mediocrity. So to their lead over the anabolics, and you know from this now two games with the Yankees having the wild card tiebreaker and what both teams winning three games apiece go to Entra vision. And that's where the Yankees have the comfortable lead with this tiebreaker because it has to do with entered vision and the ANC are better with inside the American League stab much better by about six games. Then the anabolics in the American League West, but better to be to up, really. And they were really it's three even though you're a standings with the wildcard is gonna say the two but better to be to up which is really three up with the tiebreaker in their favor, then three down with a tiebreaker. And they're a favor so says as a matter of fact here Ye here you. We don't you know, how Luigia the Yankees will no doubt. They're are not going to let it get away. They will be October third at the planes next store in the Bronx, and they will be hosting. But now it's getting a little bit too close for
"american league west" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Been with me a, long time. Long time so I guess it's good that he has confidence and he's a little bit of a. School manager, I mean the way the game's going The. Way the game is going you know, for seven innings does it. Mean what, it should definitely what it used to wear the, gave is going it's just it's a whole different world you could hear that in his voice but he knows Madison Barbara I mean who. Else would know other. Than they starting pitcher especially a guy who prides himself on going as deep into the game is, humanly can or inhumanly can and being dominant, on the mount you always want, that you absolutely always want that if. You had, four Madison Bumgarner if you had three Madison Bumgarner Madison Bumgarner, type guys, who can eat up innings and that's still is very important but it's not the most important thing you know the giants. Have not had a complete game, all year long not one and it was a really, good chance. You're seeing as we're getting into September last month of the season at the giants you're going to. Have a, guy throw a complete game The. San Francisco Giants don't throw a complete game it the way the game is changing and it goes back to the question I asked, earlier in, the show your, giants fan you love your squad you have certain feelings about the aids whether it's indifference. Are cute story or if you just. For whatever reason out hate them you, cannot do not simply cannot. Deny at, the way the as play baseball is entertaining first, and foremost and it seems to win their game and a half out of I in the American League West in the American League they're. In the wild card. Hunt it's work but everyone Jackson who's no great shakes when four and a couple other leave and, that was good enough but their bullpen and, their offense took over the giants, bullpen this is a good as good. As the, as I'd have to look at it statistically but you'll take, giants bullpen, and its current state you'll take the giants bullpen and feel good about that you'll take Bruce bocce managing their bullpen and. Feel real good about it because, of his track record But they're hitting listen last night you win you win that's great one nothing fine it's not fun It's just. Not fun and. The way the game is. Played out not to, say that Madison Bumgarner is valuable get rid of that's not where I'm going but my point is, is that your ability to score, runs along with having a strong, bullpen that. Now in. Today's baseball whether, you like. It or not That is a recipe, for regular season. Success and possibly being able. To get into the, postseason I don't know if the as with their lack of starting pitching out with fake that would, be problematic but as we know As you know giants fans starting pitching his great but your bullpen is, where you drive the. Nail into the coffin What are you doing offensively offensively in the regular season you gotta be able to score. To get yourself in a position to where you can use that bullpen to where you can't use your managers brain so where you can have a starter like Madison Bumgarner ain't maybe he does give you that one game where. You need seven strong innings because, the bullpen is either in a, state of flux or it is in a bind what have you But it's a game where you have to be offensive minded and if the giants played like the as the plane. Currently right now Starting pitching but a bullpen and, she won't know smoke from, an offense it's either? Going, to keep you, in games or just flat out when you went giants fan if they played that way would you like it yeah you'd like it Can. You be winning.

"Sorry in a west. You never know what's going to happen. You really don't. Teams can go on, runs, teams can tank the as are in it still. I mean, it's not over. I know we're going to talk about some of the traded line stuff that's definitely going to be on the show next week as we get closer and closer to the trade deadline. We have some trade report later in the show, but this is the outlook for the American League West. I think the Astros me just fine. Take should take the west. It's gonna come down to whether the Mariners or the as will be the team to get the wildcard, not the angels. I don't need to rip on the angels anymore. I know that but the the the as or the Mariners really in the American League, the entire American League when it comes to who's basically in the pl- play that wildcard game on the road because I mean, you know, you're not gonna get the whole. I doubt that's going to change whether it's going to be Red Sox. They're gonna be the home team. Of that of that game. So as you're going to Boston or New York, or the reds or the marriage will go to Boston or New York remains to be seen, that's and that's really the only thing that we have to really decide in the American League right now because the Indians are winning their division, they Astras are winning their division and then either the Red Sox, the are gonna win their division you could. I mean, what is it? Five teams make it? And then you have the one the plane games to get down to four. And we really have. We have six teams. It's sixteen in the National League. It's like nine teams or maybe even ten teams. We'll do that actual should start doing that right now about ten minutes. In this segment, I wanna go over the National League. So in the west, there's still four teams in dodgers have now gotten into first place, but the giants are only four back and then you have the Bax and the in the Rockies in between them as well less. I mean, I do half game back in and or a game and a half back. And the Rockies are three bag or something like that. So it's come down to head head put with what those with those four teams. They all beat up on each other Rockies beat up on the Diamondbacks back on the Rockies dodgers beat up on the on the Rockies Diamondbacks giants the best they can to stay in contention. Just the giants to beat up on beat up on anybody to seem to maybe still couple minutes here and there, and then maybe a series here and there as well because they, I mean, they play ball at home, the giants when you play at eighteen parks, it'll be tough for you. They play really well at home. They just increase their wins on the road for sure, because I don't even think they're one of the three teams in the National League haven't even one, two haven't won three road games. I don't think so. You have to or third? Sorry, three rooms twenty road games this year. I'm so definitely something they want to right the ship when it comes to it, the dodgers they got Machado. Do you have the pitching though? It always comes down to pitching giants, have a lot of options. They got Madison learners back. They're going to have Cueto comeback. There. They have some really interesting young players who they are still in the rotation with Andrew Suarez and Pudge Rodriguez kid Derek Enriquez's. It's been playing very well in very well for the giants. And then you have. Som Arja who just got put back on the table trying to so many injury problems as they have seen in the last few years, how to deal with a bunch of injuries. But you know it's has to with keeping it going and keep in it. In perspective and things like that and keeping keeping the nose to the grindstone. I think this division, if any division was going to be decided by the trade deadline, have a lot of implications and the trade deadline this year..

"You have a lot of teams with major league baseball right now they're just in various states of rebuilding mode and that's really important for you when you look at the world series futures market take houston for example houston's plus five fifty but houston plays in a pretty strong american league west the angels are made some very good moves us offseason seattle still have some players texas isn't completely barron oakland's not a great team and you know they'll probably look to move off some of their pieces in parts as we go along here because you know they know that they're up against it in the american league west but taking houston plus five fifty when they're going to have a dogfight possibly to win this division it's not really a great play there's a there's a whole wanna plus ev plus expected value upside in that type of play on the other hand you'll give it to like the indians here who are plus seven fifty and you'll full disclosure is everybody of the show knows i am a cleveland indians fan but think about it with the end each they have won this challenge you're in the american league central that's the minnesota twins and i don't know how much of a challenger they are right now they made some very good offseason moves both in the front office in on the field but can they go out there and and you know top indians for this division either force unions into that wildcard game or they'd have to burn corey kleuver or you know maybe dini is even lose that wildcard game i doubt it you know the indians despite having a very quiet offseason still third in terms of projected wins based on the fan graphs fan grabs depth chart projections so this is still a very good team and it's also a team with a very high likelihood of winning the division and that's the same thing with the chicago cubs you'll to me i think the milwaukee brewers are the biggest test for the chicago cubs this year maybe st louis i think sit lewis is still a solid team but you'll got there in the futures market both of those squads right now plus two thousand bet online other brewers a little bit lower their forty two one out there at five dives other cardinals.
