Closer Craig Kimbrel, Cubs finalize $43M, 3-year deal

"Big news for baseball fans. The Chicago Cubs signed relief pitcher Craig kimbrel yesterday. He was the Red Sox closer that was still on the market because he wanted a lot of money. And this is bizarre thing, the cubs were able to afford him because one of their players wives is a tramp. So Ben zobrist the hero of the World Series run back in two thousand sixteen the MVP according to divorce documents his wife, cheated on him and they're going through a nasty divorce. Benzel breast has not played baseball for the cubs in months, he's on a personal leave of absence. Meaning he is not getting paid. The cubs can keep that money because they personal leave. So what the cubs of done is take that money. That was supposed to go to Ben zobrist along with some other money, and they went out and got the best available closer on the market. So because Ben's Obama's wife cheated on him. They were able to afford to upgrade the bullpen. That's awful for so brisk. He must be going through something awful, then if he's taking a leave of absence in coming back on it, now it looks like he's not going to come back because, honestly, the cubs of giving away his money now. So it's a bizarre situation and I hate to see go out like that. He was a hero fans. He deserved to go out on better terms than that. But at the same time, I will absolutely take

"And foremost, the blame has to go on the guys that wear the uniform and play every gay offense. You were not good enough Rizzo had a very good year. Havi bias had an MVP caliber years not going to win the award. But he had a great year. But beyond that, Ben zobrist. I'll give him that one beyond that could not good enough. Russell when he was here. Not good enough. Kris Bryant injured or not not good enough. Schwarzer? Not good enough. L Morahan got off to a great start to thirty two in the second half. Not good enough. Jason Heyward while improved. Not good enough. There are a lot of things that can be fixed with this team by upgrading them offensively. But the front office has to have a better off season. And I think they would admit that to you. And I think they will admit that that they cannot go into an off season and spend a hundred twenty six on one guy that gets you one win. Whether he got injured or not the bottom line is they paid twenty six million for a guy who gave you one win. Maybe he'll be better next year. Healthy. I don't know. We'll find out you spend thirty nine million on a guy that can't find the strike zone. So all of a sudden that's one hundred sixty five million then you gave twenty two million to a closer who had been written hard put away wet by the dodgers and pitched in every game in the World Series. He went to camp with LA for a reason as a non roster minor league invitee because he couldn't stay healthy. Now, he's gonna get overworked and we're going to give him twenty two million. It's no surprise that. He got hurt. So all of a sudden, you're one hundred eighty seven million dollars in expenditures. And you don't have a whole hell of a lot to show for it. So they have to be better this off season. They did some wonderful things in season. Getting Cole hamels getting Jesse Chavez who told Marley Rivera ESPN. See this uniform, I'm wearing this was an hour after the game still in uniform see this uniform, I'm either wearing this or I'm done next year. I'm not playing this is where I wanna be and they want him back. So they'll get that done. He will be a cop. He was great. But you can't just band-aid. The moves that cost you so much money in the off season with in-season pickups and think it's going to be good enough. Daniel Murphy was okay. He was a great. He's not going to be back here. They need to go out and address second base. Whether that's going to be in half position. Whether that's going to be a combination of David Bodey, and Ben zobrist they have to fix this team while fence now, it's chili Davis going to be back. I don't know is Joe going to be back the factory even having that discussion is insane. But there is some industry speculation that he won't be back. So we'll find out but just understand something for all you man, haters out there. This guy in the postseason has gone to two World Series with the cubs in the race. He's won a World Series. He's gone to three out of four years the league championship series in the NFL. I think twice with the race to the league championship series. He went to the playoffs. Again this year. They've won ninety games every year. He's been here ninety plus three hundred eighty seven in four years. If you think it's better on the other side, it might not be maybe it will. But it might not be. Let's go to the phones James is an Elgin. He's next. Hey, Jimmy, what's up kid? How are you kid?.

"What did you see they should because looking at the replay? What I'm seeing Ben zobrist back in there safely. Now is it going to be enough evidence for them to overturn it? That's the problem. Has that he's called out? So it has to be there and convincing for them. To overturn that call. They looked like zobrist, I'm with you got the palm of his hand on the corner of the bag before he in desma, the first baseman came down with a check out of on the right shoulder blade. Ben zobrist, but it did look like it was a little bit late. And here's the the funny part of this because the decisions being made elsewhere zobrist in Desmond or just having a nice amical amicable conversation over at first base right now because it's out of their hands. Yeah. You might. Sobers might ask. Hey to give me I was in there known as a theatre probably in there. To. To convicting if you will or with a lot of conviction. Just because see what happens you mean in situations like this. Hey, you gotta be good. And you gotta be lucky and the Rockies it looks like based on the replay. If it the call stands, then they're pretty lucky in that one Mark Wagner. The first base umpire who made the call called zobrist out a Bill Miller the second base on who's the crew chief tonight they've got the headsets on on the third base side of the field is they are awaiting the ruling from the replay command center in New York Matorral Al Kyle free because of now what is becoming somewhat of a lengthy delay. He's taken two or three warm up tosses to try to stay loose. The headsets are coming off. And he is safe. For the call is overturned, and it does look like that is the correct call. But a minute and a half delays Zober still at first two down here in the bottom of the first Rockies lead the cubs wanted nothing. And now once again, here's your bias. Now, the crowds really feisty. They're really riled up. Now after that, call got overturned. Freeland sets Sobers the lead. Pitch bias swing and a foul off on. Well, they'd be excited. If has got a knock or homerun in any situation, but especially after that coffee and overturn if he goes adhere.

Controllers catches Mike Montgomery is pitching in Addison Russell at shortstop batting nine. So I see they they benched or they're punishing Bryant for not going home with the throw last night. So they put him in the outfield. Well, he wasn't he outfield to start yesterday. Don't let that change narrative or make sure that Jesse finds out that they've punished Bryant I move.

"Time to separate what is true from what is total, Bs on fact, or fiction Here's Adam the bull I welcome. Back Adam the bull with you on CBS sports radio factor fiction in a minute but the facts are that folk Gruden Jon Gruden at. Vogue Gruden, FAU x. underscore Gruden had. Had the tweet of the day just now he says the reports are. True man Khalil Mack been traded to the bears in exchange for an actual bear he. Will play defensive end for, us and we'll go. By the name Rupert raider nation please give Rupert a, warm welcome That's. Funny For more Hijinks. Here's Anthony my producer. Factor fiction both start with some baseball. Shall we so some, of that, you know, very well Ben zobrist the hunt for the NFL, batting title but believes that there are other statistics that are more meaningful than. Batting average, of course I'd like to finish higher than I ever have in that category is over. Said Thursday, but honestly I think that batting average is an. Outdated stat I think we need to get rid of it at, some point the other stats we have or more telling about how your offense of season that has been among the statistics overs believe should be weighed more heavily or batting average with runners in scoring position on base percentage and slugging percentage factor of. Fiction bowl batting average is an outdated stat It's it's three quarters. Of a fact I mean I. Still what it's still has value but it, is outdated yes that's a fact but put the. Ben zobrist, the saying that I love Ben zobrist love him but he saying it like nobody else is saying that everybody that, covers maybe, a lot of players aren't but. Most of the smart baseball people that are covering the game already. Saying that. Like when I look. At players now I don't really look. At batting average I, mean I, like I, didn't even I'm a cubs fan and I didn't, realize Benz over fourth in the National League in batting that's how little I. And I'm, a you know Anthony I'm a diehard fan but I didn't realize he's fourth batting because. I don't, really look at batting average very often I knew. He was doing well I knew he was having a good season, but I didn't know he's fourth in batting average but yeah I always look at PS like that to me is know which is for those who don't know his on base you know silver springs upon base and slugging they said slugging to write. That he's as logging or no Zobrist he mentioned, batting average with runners in scoring position on base percentage and yes looking percent yeah so on base percentage, plus slugging percentages Opie s that's really the stat I know on the cubs broadcasts. And a lot of broadcast they now, put the guy slash line there or. Maybe just, the I look at the opioid I think that's a better picture of how well a players doing that being said I. Still think batting averages a little value, it's not, like, wins like I can't, even believe I hate when people mentioned wins for a pitcher like I don't I completely don't. Ever look at wins I don't. Care pitcher wins are one hundred percent useless, stat if you judge pitchers based on wins you're. Clueless if, you vote if you vote for the Cy Young based on wins you are clueless should lose you vote so Marlins, park bull, may become a livelier place next. Season the attendance challenge franchise will invite fans to bring musical Instruments bells whistles and flags to a designated, section of Marlins park in twenty nineteen the move is. A way for Marlins fan to show pride in their native countries. Celebrate south, Florida's cultural, diversity. And get loud according to the team, website back your fiction the Marlins is latest plans will beef, up, attendance in twenty nineteen that's, a fact it will not significantly but yeah will I mean listen they're desperate right the team. Stinks jeeter who was never did anything wrong as a player as this point out. That anything right as an owner they're a. Mess they even when, they were good they didn't have a good fan base it's a lame lame, sports town especially. For baseball but I can't blame them. Because the the. The owners of that team such a terrible. Job they whenever they've had any success, they've never. Maintained it they've, always blown teams up so you gotta do whatever it, takes you got to be creative Oakland's. Been creative in ways and trying to get people. To the. Ballpark and now they have the team is playing well But will, significantly increase no but, yeah I think it will increase a little you know if you, look, at, if you watch like winter league baseball Venezuelan league Dominican league stuff. Like that that stuff's going on in the stands they're playing music take a party atmosphere and I think that's cool I do I think if I were. There for nine. Innings I'd probably eventually get annoyed by it but generally like watching. It on TV if I'm only watching, for a, couple. Of innings I, find it fun? I love the atmosphere in Latin America for baseball the players play with a lot of passion energy I think that's good for, the game I. Think the celebrating and all that, stuff is great for the game so. I'm in favor, yeah I think, it'll help a, little I don't know how much I don't, know if it's gonna be a noticeable difference but. It definitely won't hurt I don't, think moving over to. The NFL you had mentioned. This earlier Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Agreeing on a four year. Extension that will make these star quarterback the highest paid player NFL history, and keep him under contract until he is forty Rogers has repeatedly expressed his desire to play both into his forties and finish his career, with the Packers fact, or fiction ride juries will finish his career in Green Bay Yeah I mean it's always possible that something happens to the end like with Peyton Manning like with Joe Montana Brett Farr we've, seen it, but, I would, think at this point with this extension that that Aaron Rodgers days to, the end the being Unless we have a situation where yeah he's, thirty eight and, they draft. Somebody late but I I would bet yes I'd say fact he's he stays, his whole career in Green Bay Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones they plan to fix football and involve shortening. The preseason schedule by two games but he wants an eighteen game. Regular season Jones believes the, preseason is more unsafe than, the regular season I can make the case that we have an uptick. In concussions in the preseason Jones says if you look. At it I would contend there would be less exposure factor fiction, in eighteen game regular season would be safer for the players that's fiction that's the stupidest thing I, ever heard Jerry Jones as. Usual is lost in the, soup he's a great businessman, but when it comes to football he's clueless that's why since Jimmy Johnson's. Influence let the Cowboys they've been a disaster and the. Most overrated franchise in all of sports Jerry Jones is. Cloud shell but that being said I selfishly liked the idea of eighteen. Regular season games because I want more regular. Season football and I hate the season but. It certainly doesn't make it safer, stupid thing I ever heard, in my life I? Don't know how you. Could possibly make that. Argument makes no sense and, I love, what he like Jerry. Jones we've, got to, fix football like? Football's broken it's, like when, when knuckleheads. Say let's make America great again what was American break America's pretty great place make. A great, again, what stupid thing to say fix football stupid thing to. Say I mean come on what are you gonna. Fix football listen era, little things you got to tweet, football's the. Most popular sport in America that was talking about I mean yeah there are things that can be tweaked along the way But It hardly needs. Fixing it still gets kills in the. Ratings, generally you, know it was due for a little bit of a, dip but come on, this those serious fixing that needs to happen with. Football that's. Crazy Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason light said he cannot, guarantee James Winston movie, the team starting quarterback wants a three game suspension. Is over Appearing on WFL ATV during. The team's preseason finale Thursday night light disclosed the team disclosed a team could consider benching Winston if his replacement at. Presses in his absence I don't think it's. Fair to.

We four for the box what are they going to stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick I mean come on I mean, that's that's crazy I listen I guess you could.

"Batting average homers RBI steals points. Leagues are added up differently. Carpenters always been a big Walker. We've Netto door and Corey Dickerson or not. I mean, Dickerson is walking less than once per week. This season and is k. rate is cut in half. So how do you value when you're looking at slumping players? Do you look at the walks as a matter that much to you or you just like basically on track record, like is ever carpenter. It's interesting because like obviously, one of the key stats you look for in terms of hitters is so walk to strikeout ratio. And you know if you're looking at people who are not rostered and fifty percents leagues, there's five guys out there right now who I'm gonna read an article on, you know, you really need to be paying attention and they happen to be fairly hot of late Ben zobrist Jesse Winker Jason Heyward Denard span max coupla. These five guys who just the walk to strikeout ratio is really aren't good in the top twenty in the league, and they're under own because of that. They're going to have more value in points leagues. So you know, I'm not scared away by guy like Capela who's bet in like, you know, to twenty for the season, there's bound to be some sort of improvement in points leagues because of the ratio. And you know if you're dealing the runner league obviously than the batting average matters and you've got to get a look at it differently than a big fan of Jesse. Whe- inkers for a few seasons now he plays fantasy football. Did you know? I did not know. You know, he was hitting the eighth month which is going. Yeah. The reason I was interested is because he was a Walker, he knew what pitch swing out in the minor leagues you could tell. And I thought there was enough power for like twenty home runs, and I still think there is right away. But yeah, what's my Winker? Oh, so it was at the futures game a couple years ago and Winker grabbed me. I was interviewing somebody else. Maybe it was Josh bell and weaker grabbed me and said, the Buffalo Bills are going to win the Super Bowl this year. And I'm like, yeah, I don't think so. And I knew it was. And then we started talking fantasy football, and then we forgot that it was a baseball game. Anyway. I like Winker he's he's from buffalo. Let's get to some other stuff here. All right, let's get to your team because that's a mess. And there actually is fantasy relevant news here. They traded the Mets traded URI's familiar to Oakland over the weekend for pretty much nothing and familiar. Got the win on Sunday, but it's clearly not the closer Blake trial and having a fantastic season. One would presume Robert Salman. We'll be the savior of Mets games with few they have. But the big story to me other than the function is you want assessment as I think it's fifty. Fifty doesn't even play another game this season and his long term outlook for dynasty purposes. I think is clouded here because of the hill problems. Our colleagues defined your bell wrote an excellent story DSP. And about this. What's your take here? I'm kind of being serious now with s but as I mean, obviously we could go on for hours about the mess. That is this team has franchise assessment as like on this. Not sure he's gonna play. No. And this is always been since he's been with the Mets anyway. This is kind of been the thing. You know, he shows up for a little bit and then he's on the DL or or he's not on the deal, which is even worse is that you know, gets banged up. He's that day to day and you know the front office communication with the dugout clearly is not there. It hadn't been there. I mean, when they're when I was mister met running around on the field, I knew more about team than Bobby Valentine didn't simply because I was listening back of house when they weren't talking to him. I would just hearing or with the some of the guys offing, but it's just the communication lines are are not there if Calloway didn't even know that this was was hurt. There's issues here..

"Don't care what's. Going, on Longtime? No talk yeah really. What's happening. How the. Bears looking we ready we're ready a nine. Win season is what I'm predicting even though you didn't you. Say, ten last whatever we're not no I said. Nine. And seven the whole time nine Okay all. Right So did you hear any of our? Jed Hoyer conversation I. Actually did not I missed. With the kids so tell me so they are definitely going add pitching one hundred percent and he refused to rule out adding on. A big, name, he said look we're going to be involved, in every discussion but my takeaway is depth starter. And bullpen arm do you think they go beyond that? Looking. Towards going okay if we don't, have Darvish there can we win a World Series without adding? Another elite arm and that is the question that they're probably debating over the. Next, few weeks I, I think. That's that's it that's it right there, in a nutshell that's the. Most important thing can we win it all without you Darvish pitching at. An elite, level I mean I think the answer is yes because any great team can overcome usually can. Overcome one player now it's harder to overcome a starting pitcher or maybe a closer. That you'd go. That. Goes down All right you can, overcome outfielder you. Can overcome an you know that's. Easier to overcome, so it's a tough question I wrote about the ground today I think it's. Going to happen of course not because you always err? On the side of. Caution because those deals don't. Usually happen other although trade traded for a while this Chapman has traded for Jose cantata so we've seen them do some big ones. This is, even, bigger because he's the best picture in the, league basically along with Andy is two years left. But to answer questions yeah I I do think it'll? Be. That I mean even though THEO, said look even though we invested so much in our shouting? Rotation we're in the position we're in we would invest more I don't actually. Think, they will not, not at. The highest level like you said a, back end depths Carter plus. Reliever at some point enough is enough right how mu- how much can. You invest, in one area the team go look at it they'll examine it don't make all those phone. Calls we talked about look if they don't make all the phone calls last year. They don't get Jose can on right if they think there's no chance we, they'd get them. They would never you know what. I mean right. You make every you make every possible call what if the. Mets for example David Bodey is the next David right you know who knows maybe they is the next I don't know. Pick pick Ben zobrist and. Then they they think so much of Azoulay even though we start you just don't know until, you make that phone call and that's why we. Could probably, go over the names they're not looking at that that'd be a shorter list because every non contending team and basically every pitcher on those. Teams that's all the names they would be looking, at you know obviously, the ones, that make sense more to. Them? Or a lefty reliever and then any kind of starter. As we as we talked about so I don't think the big. Deal will happen but. Just because they you know that's the that's easier answer right I didn't think they'd go get cozy consign last year I think it was you and I. Both agreed minute seems. Untouchable and then he wasn't so that's kinda how I look, at it in. Terms of a. Guy that we have not? Talked. About that I think could have value in. A train I'm not, advocating now Wanna see them. Give him up but I think he could be a piece of a trade because he's a starter almost not every but almost every team that you'd be. Trading with Victor Kartini Yeah that's a good point someone tweeted at. Me the, Mets need of a catcher a, switch hitting catcher good defensive skills growing offensively I don't. Think that's. A bad call. Then you then you roll the. Dice would Jiminez in the playoffs I mean think about it down the stretch, your season banks and Chris Jiminez or the backup catcher in general you've got bigger you would go, out and try you would go out and get our veterans Sure that's fine..

"Day games used to be the regularity of the regulars don't work growing up when they installed lights it did not become as obviously as customary as when there was no lights i mean it used to be exclusively day game so that is no longer the case in chicago with the cubs now they do play night game so it's day games at home that ben zobrist is wearing the black spikes i can understand the adjustment now major league baseball and make the argument to this is that is that if they don't go if they pull back on the rule is that guys might show up and start wearing neon justice right it's off the charts distracting to pitcher the pitcher or distracting we're we're just does not look part and parcel where every everybody's cleats are are completely and utterly different i mean what's special about the all star game is usually guys have special allstar cleats right where whether it be all white whether it be black whether it be beyond whatever it might be there's a little different variety and they allow guys on that game because if back to what it should be which is an exhibition allow guys to be able to express themselves must be young.
