"Like just like remember. Remember what the goal is at all times. No matter what i was doing. There was only one goal. You know when you said you are one goal in and it started at such an early age. What do you think drove you to just be so singularly minded about a goal was that we watched baseball so much did that have an influence or was it something else that going on. I think it challenged my brain. There was a whole lot going on. I think to a much deeper level than than other sports. The main thing that attracted me was the complexity and the competition ultimately. I just wanted to compete. I wanted to once. We started getting like like winning and losing was with everything it was. I had to win. I wanna do everything i did. I despised losing and baseball offer. That on every game has a winner. You lose and there was nothing you know. There's nothing better than going out and winning a baseball game. There's nothing worse than going at losing it. And the beauty of those of them is the the winning makes you want some more and the losing makes you never want to experience that again. So you gotta make sure you lose anymore. It's interesting you would say that. I remembered quite a few years ago. I was listening to an interview. Joe montana and joe montana says your highest level athletes are not driven by the desire to win. They're driven by the hatred of losing. Does that resonate with you at all. Yeah it's for sure both no doubt. I don't think it's much earth the healthiest way to go about it. Maybe four before. I used to probably hate to lose more than i. Love a women and think apple to make sure that we're sticking with the positive things it's definitely a healthier way to live. Do not hate to lose that. That extreme level there's got to be negative on you emotionally doesn't it. Yeah just when you when you play so many games in so many days. You can't let something like that phase your for for a second because you gotta show up and be ready to go the next day. That is the truth of baseball. That many people understand but if they're not avid sports they really don't understand it. You know you play a one hundred sixty two game season and then how many games and in spring training another twenty five to thirty games.

"It's definitely something that i try and look back on as often as possible. I guess humble myself was that my goal is always to make it to the big leagues. And now that. I've made it. I need to remind myself spent along with the hard work. I need to be able to enjoy myself and enjoy the ride of you. Know the thing that i worked so hard for my whole life just to just to be an experience and it is It was well worth all the hard work because just the experience of being in the big leagues just in the small period of time i've been there is is an experience that it's tough to put into words. What do you look forward to most as a player on a baseball team is the plane is at the clubhouse is it. The strategy is at the watching film. You know all the preparation is it the beers after the game. What do you look forward to every single one of those every single day. They're all the highlight of my day. When i'm doing all all those things you said. I promise you. I got a smile on my face while. I'm doing all those so whether it's in the film room i got a smile on my face. 'cause that's where that's where i do my work and that's where i do all my digging that I think is something that can set you really against somebody else in a in a good way. How much time before a game do you spend in the film room. The film room on day one of the theories is a longtime luckily over the course of my career. I've figured out how to kind of speed the process up a little bit used to be upwards of three hours now. It's probably about an hour and a half on day one of the series and then probably about forty five minutes to an hour on the other days. And what are you looking for. Are you looking for everything about the other team or are you looking at your team as well. I ideally have been given a bunch of information already from the advance scouting team. Bill even have the specific video to show all the numbers. Are there for me. Which used to not be used to kind of have to look up a lot of the numbers but instead the numbers are given to me. And i then try and go find the detail so the numbers say. This guy is not hitting sliders right now. I wanna know why because some people say numbers don't lie numbers absolutely lie baseball because a guy could see. Let's say the last ten sliders he's seen he's over ten some like..

Those three words are tattooed on the inside of Dietrich's left wrist in along with the numbers nineteen thirty five hyphen two thousand thirteen his Grandpa's birth and death dates, and of course, RIP and Dietrich told Jim day of Fox Sports Ohio late last night.

He's only batting two hundred but Dietrich has five home runs to go with thirteen RBI's in it. If you were up late last night man, you saw seven reds pitchers combined on a four hitter and former university of Dayton pitcher Craig Stayman, he took the loss for the Padres. Stamen could have easily been the winner if not for a bonehead play by his teammate in the tenth inning. Ian Kinzler the second baseman for the Padres. He ripped a one out double to left center in the bottom of the tenth inning only to get caught stealing. Jared. You saw him take off for third Hughes to a you swore as nailing Kinzler at third base in Austin hedges grounded out to end the tenth in that came before Derek Dietrich's fireworks things got a little shaky in the bottom of the eleventh inning.

Brought to you by western and southern financial group helping to make Cincinnati the best place to live work and enjoy life and for the reds. It's right hander Luis castio against lefthander. Eric lower of the Padres castio has a one in one record, and he's armed with a microscopic one point four six earned run average allowing nine hits and four runs in twenty four in two-thirds innings striking out thirty two. Now, some Walser starting to pile up for castio who issued five of them in Monday's five inning, no decision. But is changed up is still filthy in. It's made him a force to be reckoned with for opposing hitters this season watering incredible change up the weeks castio has and men with this reds lineup tonight. Now unveil that later man, they're going to need. A solid pitching performance tonight from Louise castio and Eric lower. He's a lefty he's two and two on the season with a four point nine one ERA lower. He fell victim to some tough luck is last time out is he allow three runs in five innings against Zona. Now, the Twenty-three-year-old lefty he made two starts against the reds last season. And he gave up just one run on seven hits of the reds MandA bats at some point have to absolutely come alive.

"And he was career below four hundred and still is so twenty seven teams looking like the outline. But I thought maybe we could see some improvement in Barnhart spat. He did add a few homers, but he did have one hundred more plate appearances too. So he went from seven to ten there. And he was a little bit of a sneaky speed option, contributing four stolen bases in seventeen. I was hoping for another three to five maybe even six if he got you know, if it was commensurate with the playing time that he was going to get but he went over four so he tried a little bit. But it didn't work. He did get. Fifty runs Forty-six rabies. So all in all he was still fine talk talk about an art was, and I think he'll continue to be fine this year in Cincinnati. I think that lineup is actually pretty decent. It was last year to right. So I'm not really saying anything special there. It's going I should say continue to be decent. And I'm still intrigued by he doesn't cost anything of merit to pick two eighty four for your c two is not bad. And I'm willing to play that Kirk Kirk Caselli's behind him really more of a bat at catcher said par barn. Hearts the defensive stalwart there. He will likely be batting eighth. Not a great spot. I can't see a lot of potential to move up. But you just kind of take it, and you get that volume. If I get back up to the two seventy area with the batting average and get the five hundred twenty two plate appearances or four hundred sixty at bats. I guess at bats are what matter for batting everybody get that high volume again, even if it's more of a two sixty to sixty five and. Ten homers three to five steals. I'll take it all day from Tucker Barnhart. So I think he's pretty solid. I'll be interested in him as a c two next up is Austin hedges who I mentioned briefly when talking about he and he's going to be the starter. Again. He's got the defensive reputation and skills reputation makes it sound like he doesn't uphold it he's got the defense that's unlock and his powers really starting to unlock the last two years with eighteen and fourteen homers, respectively, and he throws a little sneaky speed four and three stolen bases. Each of the last two years, again, these are these are small numbers, I freely admit that on the speed, but you're getting them over the guys with the zeros, and if hedges kind of forces his way into saying he gets the five hundred twenty two point appearances. Now, you aren't talking five six maybe seven stolen bases and those incremental three to four can really be the difference between three four. Four maybe even five points in your standings. Because of how tight steals our. I used the mixed labor in one of the comments on that piece. You can go look for it. Just go under. If you can't find it easily just go under JT Romo tos profile. It'll be the first piece most recently written a by about him called looking for speed and all the wrong places. You can go scroll down to the comments, and I talked about why why I found this valuable because of the tightness of stolen base categories, and I use comparison of labor mixed last year versus the way it looked in twenty fourteen in the differences in speed in how those small those small extra SP's over your competition can really be game changing maybe not necessarily on their own intangible with getting incremental speed elsewhere too. But that was kind of the jump off for that. So go ahead and take a look at that. If you care, but Austin hedges, he's a little bit Zunino ish though. And I will point that out because I don't. Want to be a hypocrite say, you know, forget Zunino, but then go get hedges because they're damn near the same really bad batting average power playing time defense. And so I would like to see him improves average. Although to thirty one is still better than what ones do last year to two. Tool one. Excuse me. So you're talking about a thirty point difference. They're still so I'd still prefer hedges particularly coming cheaper hedges at two nineties. Nino at two sixty gave me the two round discount, and I'll take hedges the same the same type of player..

"But I thought that was too high site cut it back to forty seven. But let me see what it was. It was straight up. Fifty dang should've stuck with it. Although fifty three was too high. So I was wrong there. But yeah, you know, had a fifty fifty game hit streak, which is very cool. It does speak to his contact and hit tool even though I mean streak is inherently something. That's that's fluky. It's not. You know, overwhelmingly skills-based, but he does have a hit tool that is going to drive his success in the majors for for instance, coming here, there's a lot of walks, but doesn't strike out. A lot has really been in the teens throughout his minor league career. That's why the thirty one percent even in the small sample in the majors last year was a little bit jarring because that's just not that's just not his game. But a major a hell of a lot tougher. So we'll see how Mahia adjusts it be kind of lives in that seventeen. Eighteen percent range with strikeout rate. He should be able to track to sixty five average right off the top. And then we'll kind of see where the power's at in the major league level. He did hit three homers in that small sample, and maybe he was selling out for power a little bit at the expense of. His swing and miss so Mahia now it is a little interesting out in San Diego. Whether or not me he is going to get full run because Mr. Austin hedges still thing. So are they going to? Are they going to give Mahia? The basic fulltime job, or is hedge is going to be there in may. He is going to have to fit in. Now, it looked like Cleveland wasn't really going to use Mahia as a full-time catcher. If he had stayed there. They seem to be looking at at kinda bouncing him around the field. Let me see if he did any of that with. With the Padres. Yeah. In fact, he's ten games was that. Whereas that catcher, he only played twenty games with them. So what was at ten catcher? A was it a bunch of pinch hit appearances to for Mia? I think so so I think half of his appearances last year where pinch hit. They didn't put him anywhere else. Though. He did have one D H game for each team. Cleveland in San Diego, obviously interleague game for San Diego. But we didn't see any of the outfield stuff that we had seen. I've leave in the minors is was games in the minors. Twenty nine games in the outfield. Eleven at third base and four hundred and thirty behind the dish for Mahia. So. Obvious like he's nowhere near Austin hedges behind the dish. Most guys aren't that's not necessarily a ding on Mahia in comparison to hedges. But. Is just not catching defenses not as main thing. But the outfield is also cluttered out there in San Diego. So playing time might be a bit of an issue..

"Chance at Serena's at twenty five to ninety eighty overs Anita o'day twenty five to three picks earlier than that. So that's where I looked at my balanced. But I think Narvaez Diaz are the two guys that intrigued me most down in this tier as guys that are being overlooked in by ADP. I'm with you on a nerve as Diaz is an interesting guy for me as well. Awesome. Barnes is interesting because of how late he's going and grand all being gone that being said before I invest in him at all I'm waiting to see if the dodgers trade for all Muto. So he kind of goes in that for instance, he category where I go. I'm not touching this one. And for that matter Austin hedges, I'm waiting to see San Diego trades Mahia. That means real move just playing everyday over hedges had to begin with. You're playing every day. I mean, he's he's over nine hundred plate appearances under to ten batting average. But what you're gonna get a lot of the times in kind of this category. To me again. I'm looking at looking at some other upside guys there in Nevada Diaz Reno's even survey a him than the Barnhart. Savelli I want for all definitely Barnhart guy keener kinda print pronounce this one. He's interesting because of the fact they'll move him around the infield. And so while I'm never going to likely play him at second base or third base. The fact that he's actually going to play those positions on occasion, just means more plate appearances from my catcher too. And that's really where his value comes in. Because he's got three positions on drafting catcher second base third base. Which was sweet what he has no power. He's got a decent hitch can steal some basis. So you're looking at a guy who should cancer hit for damage for catcher. And then you've got a guy with some upside of ten of ten seals. That's catcher eligible, but that's it. I mean, the run production ended of itself is not going to be there. So you're it's a two category catcher in two categories. You don't expect catcher? So that's right. I I see his value there. But agree here. I had last year. It was somebody that I got Intel. I think I reserved him. Absolutely. We're gonna walk because using this catcher in that played out that plate of was a free catcher off the bench. But I not. Of this group at always a treaty one right now. But I also were interested in the as our Vyas for gigs later. That is going to do it for this episode doing Mason quick and dirty unless there is there. A guy left off the list by chance that you might be interested in the only because he's the very last guy thought I had to look like a PT through Christian Vasquez. I mean, Red Sox piddling, whatever. But you look at you look at you expect the stats. He left a bunch on the table forty five points, batting average forty or points a weighted on base average the expecting the contact the quality of the context says he was better than the awful. This was last year. So of you looking if you're a twelve team mixed league you have to roster to catchers at your one of these guys him spending a dollar onto guys. He's more throwing the dollar to see what else is there to to that way. If you're at AL only league, obviously, you're have to spend a dollar on somebody like this. But there's there's enough left in the tank based on the quality of the contact to intrigue me. We're talking tool seven actual to fifty two expected. Batting average to forty expected weighted on base to the two eighty four of the two forty twenty four wait, obey savage is still garbage. But that that difference at batting average. If you're averagely is intriguing enough to wonder what can happen, you're so that's that's a catcher to dart throw in a if you're if you're fifty fifteen team or twelve fifteen you have to draft to catchers, there's a dollar target. If you're at AOL at you have to there's dollar target. Yeah. I agree with you..

"ABC's real beautiful cups in bay that's already unless for. But I am really not interested in twenty runs out sitting there could hit the ball hard. That's fine. When there's site gap in between the twenty eight one ninety five. In. That's the problem for me. I'm one of those guys that I liked to punt batting average. But I wanna point batting average with someone who's got a really high offensive ceiling. So like Joey Gallo like I don't wanna punt batting average with my catcher one necessarily a really what I want for my catcher one in my catcher, too is a guy that isn't going to hurt me. And I think willing to kissed you is one of those guys who's not going to hurt you. He he missed a lot of last year with a suspension PD suspension of but the White Sox have made moves to kind of give him free rein in this in this offense. I think he could hit twenty home runs with a decent average. And that's going to be a much improved offense, especially once they signed one of the Macharia harbor and then bring up Illinois Jimenez. I like to say a lot instead late last year is trash this year's tragedy. When you miss after sees, you gotta come back. There's some problem is willing to take a chance on at one of the things. I would comment about cine know if he's ever going to turn it around. This is going to be the place to do it. I mean, we're talking about a poll hitter in division loaded with parks favorable hitters at if it's gonna be if there's a year for for him to do it. You would think this would be the one. So that's where glimmer of hope that said, I'm going to waikele let somebody else take that chance and see where that goes. But if he's gonna ever shut me up the hotline guy, really good. This is going to be the year to do it because the Fenway and Baltimore especially with Baltimore's pitching. At Toronto those are places that he should be able to do very well. Yeah. As far as franscisco me. He goes, I'm really waiting on. I think he is a fine value. This Europe surprised he hasn't actually gone more gotten more expensive. I've been on the record as a guy who dislikes Francis going. He'll long-term that being said he's got catcher eligibility. Now. I think if he stays in San Diego, he's going to lose that catcher eligibility at some point. And I think if he goes anywhere, you could lose catcher eligibility at some point. He's been talked as a potential return or part of return for a real Muto going to San Diego. If that happens Mahela ends up in Miami. I want nothing to do with him. Correct. Correct. I agree in the city was tough fed took you'd have to move around because you're not going to you're not gonna. You're not gonna put Austin hedges minimalized him it networks value as defense and the occasional solo shot 'cause you thought about doing to can hit now. There's no, Yup. Though. Austin hedges does have a little bit of pop he rarely makes contact. But when he does he hits it hard. Before it was five years ago. We were at the futures game. A few game day fell rising stars. And it was farro behind one plate in hedges behind the other..

"It's like finding. It's like finding Wilson good Dreyer's is an anomaly you see guys like Joe Mauer who have great careers behind the plate. And also at at the dish. You don't find that? You don't find that? At all BUSTER Posey. I mean, all these guys wind up transitioning into first baseman at the end of the careers. But if you if you had to go through all of the catchers in baseball, you can probably name one two that are going to get hit gonna hit three hundred every year. I mean, if you if you want to say, too, I think me he has that ability in it's a whole lot harder to teach somebody to hit than it is to teach somebody to call a game to frame pitches to do anything defensively any has the arm in the foundation to do it. It's kind of just like. Molding him like Klay defensively. So that he can be JT Rudo or even better. Yes. No. I totally agree with in a totally. So your point he has that offensive ability that -fensive firepower. But there are some question marks to with it. He's extremely aggressive with his swing with zip Roach will barrel up pitches constantly, but there's that fear that wants pitchers figure out that he's gonna just swing at anything that he's just not going to get strikes and the offense of ability is just not going to be what needs to be. So there there's a ceiling of a victim Martinez type player with him. Of course, is he going to be able to tame that that remains to be seen. But Austin hedges is someone that you have to see on an everyday basis to really appreciate he's not gonna kill you with his offense of issues. He's learned to become less of a of a slump type of player. He's been a little more consistent with his at bats at times last season. He was. Really solid offensively. So I don't think it was ever going to be a two seventy to eighty type hitter. But if he can hit two fifty to sixty and twenty bombs for you and provide goal gold glove calendar defense than I can definitely see the. The want of having them on your team. He's also homegrown Padre, which is very valuable for this team right now who's just had issues with keeping players and having them establish b- or be established at the major league level. So. In a perfect world. I would love to keep both of them. And and have them share at bats. Perhaps give me he has some some some shots in the outfield or or I or at a D H when when they go to American League ballpark, but. Left to wait. And see..

"All right, James. We are going to dive right on in. We're gonna talk about the Senate who Padres system through and through. We're going to check all the nooks and crannies we're gonna start at the catcher position. There's kind of like a little divide when it comes to the main catcher position about see what these fans will want. You have Francisco Mahia who is part of one of my favorite trades and all baseball in the past couple years. You get Francisco Mahia four Brad hand. This team wasn't gonna use Brad hand you turn it into the number one catching prospect in baseball. Then you also have Austin hedges who is going to be a good catcher is a good catcher at this point. And there seems to be two camps the Mahia camp and in the hedges camp kind of explain that. And why that is the way it is. Yeah. You know, the Senate will Padres definitely have more questions than answers right now. And that's a common theme throughout the whole roster. You're correct. As far as the two camps are concerned, the two players complimented each other really, well, we have the you have Austin hedges who's a defensive minded catcher right handed hitter knows the system. Really well knows the pitchers really wells has built a relationship with a lot of the pitchers, and then you have Francisco Mahia the twenty three year old going to be twenty four year old. Switch hitting offensive minded catcher. You know? The defense is a concern with me here. I saw him small glimpses last year at the major league admits go in San Diego. And there are some definite concerns with his framing ability is pitch calling ability the receiving ability. But he is definitely has one of the best arms in all of baseball right now and think Andy green made mention of that last season. So the Padres have. Have questions. So I I don't know. I don't have answers for you. I've seen hedges rumored in in numerous trade proposals. I haven't seen the recently since the thought rumors have died down for the Mets. So it looks like they're probably leaning towards keeping the he end in building around him. Anything can happen with this team. I don't I don't even think the front office really knows what what they're gonna do. It all depends on what can offer they have. Or where they go or parties are pretty flexible in that regard. They seem to have different avenues to to go down. And depending on which way a trade goes, or which way acquisition goes the they'll kind of just to that. So we'll have to wait and see. So behind those two that the catch in depth is amazing on a minor. So I know you, and I kinda briefly win over that before we started. But. Any questions or anybody? You wanna talk about in particular from the minor league perspectives for sketches a concern real quick on Mahia here, though, we when we talk about catchers, right? The thing that's really lacking in this league. Catchers that hit. Yes. It's very very hard to find..
