"Question that I have. Is it the same person in the mask? Every time these interacting with this kid to the mascot folk after inform one another, here is how to do ball sunstone. He loves us. It's very sweet. We have to maintain this relationship because it's adorable and also if you don't, it will make a tiny child. I hope so. If they were rotating, I hope no one was out of the loop because if there were one day where the blooper of that day did not know. It would be devastating relationship. Oh, and he just gave stone the cold shoulder. I guess it's a mascot's job generally to interact with toddlers, so like hopefully you would wave at him or whatever regardless of this. Long-standing relationship here, but still. Well, I would imagine that, you know, players, kids are around to varying degrees certainly, but like they're their kids are around the club on a fairly regular basis. And so I would think that the mascot performers. What does the mascot? He inhabitants. Inhabitants sounds so haunted. What are you doing? Inhabitants makes them the haunted objects that they are, which may be this bad too. Actors cast members, maybe it's a Disney thing. Mascot cast members, but I would imagine that if that is your gig that you come to know the players families because, yes, they interact with them regularly and your default mode as you said if you're a mascot is probably to be like, I will be nice to this child. I'm kind of impressed with this kid because you said that too is like prime mascot time. And I think that for a percentage of the child a population that that is true, but I think that for many two year olds, they look at these giant things and they're like, this is terrifying get away from me. Yeah. So it could be a clown situation. Right, yeah. People used to love clowns and now they don't anymore. Maybe it's because they are also weirdly. Anyway, you're worried about manoa and Ryu. I'm worried about what happens at all recent Atlanta. I mean, I'm so happy that Adam Duvall was traded to the braves now, not just because he got to win a World Series and his season turned around, and he really helped them, but just because stone got to meet blooper, I know that they have tendered a contract to Adam Duvall. He is under team control for 2022. And I just hope that either he stays there long term or I guess stone at some point will age out of his infatuation with blooper. I hope that happens before Adam deval departs not after. Maybe it will be the motivating factor for his departure, perhaps he will try to instigate a trade because his son will say, I am in love with Lucille, the seal, the giant seal, also why it doesn't matter. Yeah, or do follow could be envious of the fact that blooper is now more of a father figure to stone than Adam actually is, or I don't know, it seems like it's a great relationship. It seems like it's bringing joy at least to one party, hopefully both ways. Yeah. I think if you're stuck inside the mascot outfit, it's not the best assignment, but I think if you could bring joy to toddlers the way that blooper has brought joy to stone, it's got to be a perk. Yeah. I mean, you're sitting there and you're like, this one being does not view me as a terrifying haunted object. So makes the whole day worthwhile. All right, the Cardinals. Now this might be something we talked about in some way, but I don't think we really noted the average age of the rebuilt cardinal's rotation in the second half of the season. The rotation that helped carry them to the playoffs and to their 17 game winning streak was so old. So this was gonna make me feel old by saying these words. I mean, most of them are even older than we are. So that's how old they are. I mean, you had Adam Wainwright fronting this rotation 40 year old Adam Wainwright. And then you had J hat who was added midseason. He's 38. John Lester was added midseason 37, wade Leblanc, 36, and then the young in this group was Huang Yang Kim, who is 32 and he was the young gun. So you had an entirely mid 30s. I mean, the average age of this rotation is what like 30 or 6 or 37 or so. Older than me. Yeah, exactly. So this is unusual, I think. And they weren't great. I guess they were good enough clearly. The Cardinals did well during this time. Now, in the second half of the season, cardinals starters had the lowest strikeout rate of any team in the majors. They had a 6.5 strikeout per 9 during that time. But they made it work one way or another and they had the 5th lowest ERA and like a middle of the pack war so they were using their defense. We can put it that way. But not flamethrowers, not missing a ton of bats, but just ancient rotation that was actually good for the Cardinals and really paid off for them. So good for them. Always nice to see you old by baseball standards players succeed. Hold by baseball player. I mean, those are social people who they're not old by normal human standards, but they are. They're not children either. But yeah, that's not so bad. It's not so bad. 36.6 average age. All right, sticking with the NL central, the cubs. We talked about some cub stories and some surprising seasons that they had. And I don't remember whether we mentioned this, maybe we alluded to it briefly, but in August, there was a romaine romaine brother, battery, Andrew romaine pitched to Austin, romaine, which does not happen a whole lot..
