Recounting the Yankees' Most Excruciating Losses
"How many times can you name the yankees How many games can you recall where they had a lead. In the ninth at fenway park recently recent history and lost only recent history. You got this one last night. Three one pretty bad very bad. Twenty seventeen year old is chapman walked the bases-loaded and blew a one run lead and they eventually got walked up. Andrew benintendi remember that very clearly 2016. They blew like a four nothing lead in its anarchist start and hanley. Ramirez walked off with a three run home. Run to dead center field. That happened two thousand eighteen. The three run lead in the ninth mcginlay do it with the throwing error the it and then eventually they got walked off. Of course they did. I mean that's four since two thousand sixteen fairly confident. That's not all of them didn't happen last year. There were no fans. Gary sanchez actually came back. In the ninth against the red sox. That was nice It's at least one a year. It's a kind of lost that should maybe occur in this rivalry once every five or six years
Trey Mancini's Struggle and Strength
"Sedan baseball fans. Probably know trae mancini as this really good power hitter on a not so good team but can you give us a quick snapshot of his career before he broke out under the scene in major league baseball. Yeah he was never thought to be the guy so he had to keep working every single level to prove himself. He started out in high school in florida. was when a really good team there but he was the first baseman he was right handed hitter and so he didn't get a whole lot of looks. His name and number is up at his high school. You own the big placard but the numbers wrong. It's actually number eighteen instead of number sixteen which is number there. That's kind of almost indicative of the things that he is going through that he's always been kind there but there's always been a player on his team or something and he's always been kinda overshadowed basically. He went from rung to rung to wrong in the minor league. Ladder finally made his debut in september of twenty sixteen and basically exploded those first few games that one in the air left-center field has dave sadegh first major league at his mom beth getting your round the basis faster than anyone this year. Who is in a home run and then in two thousand seventeen was fantastic and ended up being third-place rookie of the year behind. Aaron judge andrew benintendi in the american league. And just how good was he during the twenty nineteen season. Oh he was by far the best player. Understand you thirty five home runs. You really broke out. Towering fly ball left center field. Hit hard by trae man's cd way back in the wall. Hey goodbye homerun. He should have been there all star but when your team is bad as your only get one all star pick and john means was having a good season for the orioles as well so they went with a picture instead of manzini but he was absolutely breakout. Star back goes that god does get on the board. O est back cd hot getting four point seven five million so a huge jump and he is poised to be one of the better younger players in the american league so heading into the twenty twenty season. It sounds like his baseball career really his life. Were just in a great place. Oh yeah it was going exceptionally well for him in pretty much every aspect of his life including he started dating a woman who had been one of the on field reporters for the orioles. Forget this you home runs for infield heads for you. What's on the difference maker up to this point last year honesty. If you'd sarah perlman she's now works for nbc sports. She had left the orioles in july. What does it mean to close out. Games like doesn't get the w. carnival. Not exactly how he drew it up towards the end there but and that was going really well at the beginning of a new relationship he just become a millionaire for the first time. Everything was going perfect for him. Going into two thousand twenty and dan walk us through what happened in march of twenty twenty so like all baseball players. They get their annual physical when they get to the spring training camp and he did his regular physical bloodwork everything else and then around march. I the athletic trainer came to him and said. Hey your blood's a little wonky like your iron levels are pretty much low you all the way throughout and basically you saying you know. I don't want to scare you. But i think you're having some sort of internal bleed that's causing. It could be stomach older. It could be healy activities. Or you know there. An can't that I remember them. Asking if i had a family history of colon cancer and i said yeah my dad had obviously they did some more tests and they decided you know what we need to get your co nas copy. Because things don't look right. They had the colonoscopy and they told me found a major mass in his colon
Boston Red Sox trade Benintendi to Kansas City Royals in three-team deal that includes New York Mets
"We did have a A trade godown wasn't a blockbuster. But i think certainly noteworthy is that. The red sox have been shopping. Andrew benintendi for quite a while. Now and i didn't understand why this guy was a top ten pick by the red sox not that long ago but here are the details in this three way trade between boston. The mets and kansas city. The red sox receive outfielder slash d. H. franci cordeiro Right handed pitcher josh win. Chaussee three players to be named later one from the mets to from the royals. The royals get outfielder. Andrew benintendi and the mets received outfielder khalil. ali now benintendi. As soon as he showed up last year he got hurt and he was offered a year. He only played like two weeks and batted one. Oh three he had a strained ribcage but coming into last season he was a career. Two seventy seven hitter and averages about eighteen home runs a game and he's due to make six point six million this year in his second. Rv'er so he has Another year. Sorry i know he has another two years after that. So i argue but the royals will now put benintendi in left field every day because if you think about with mary field i guess he's an outfielder our second baseman so a combination of him. Edward olive arison. Michael eight taylor. But the red sox for their part we'll get cordeiro which is a mix of alex dugo number. How highly regarded wasn't a dodger system. Hunter renfrow talked about yesterday as blooms gonna take a chance on him and that park but cordeiro as to thirty six hitter and he strikes out thirty five percent of his trips to the plate
Boston Red Sox Take A Closer Look At Corey Kluber
"There is more activity coming out of boston as well. They are rumored to be interested in several free agents and buster olney. espn's buster only reported that quote. The red sox have talked a ton of possibilities are preparing for a series of moves before the start of spring training and quote so move. Benintendi isn't the only move. That's on the mind for the red sox There's a couple of other names here. That have been linked right hander. Jayco dharavi starting pitcher. He he's up and down when it comes to his career. He was in minnesota for some time then down to texas but professional arm to come in and give them quality innings veteran relief pitcher. Alex colom formerly of the white sox in his point eight. Era from twenty twenty now. There are some concerns when you dive in a bit. Deeper into sabermetrics there is a dip in velocity and hard hit contact has increased. But you know it is a results oriented. Sport and alex colom was still fantastic for a the white sox this past summer. You have former cy. Young winner corey kluber pitching for teams on wednesday january thirteenth. So you guys may know how that workout went by the time. You're listening to this He's gonna throw about twenty five thirty pitches and it seems to be about two thirds of major league. Baseball teams will be in attendance. So the main goal is to show teams. He's healthy show. Teams that velocity is still there because he's basically missed. The entirety of the last two seasons with multiple injuries forearm torn right Throwing muscle a lot of different things going on with kluber but he could be a perfect. You know bowe bilo free agent option for not only boston but a couple of other different teams out there and the last guy the red sox have been tagged to is actually outfielder yasuko week. You know puig's been in and out of baseball and could find himself as a cheap option out there in the outfield for boston and a lot of people don't like i actually don't mind him. I liked the energy place with. I like the passion that he brings to the yard ultimately he's probably not the performer. He once was but he'll give you a professional at bats. Play hard for you. And i do think that people in boston would certainly like

"He rips apart Farm systems poured Detroit is still a Barren Wasteland up there still a Barren Wasteland and this is what was going to happen. And I mean, so you brought up. In fact, there's one guy who I I worry cuz he's always been good but not great. But he's having a really good season this year and he's making a splash on social media and I'm a fan of him because he talks a lot of crap, but I am genuinely concerned that the Red Sox are going to go out this offseason and throw in overpriced amount of money at Trevor Bauer. I don't I don't think he's going to keep up what he's been doing. Yeah, I don't love Trevor Bauer. But again, you look around you're like, okay. Well if you don't look Trevor Bauer, what do you want? What do you want to do what he wants to guess you do it. Do you want him to go get three more Martine Perez's you know what? I mean? Don't get a guy who's going to have any outray between 5 and 6 maybe win 10 games in a regular thousand. Do you want three of those guys order to have something like Trevor Bauer who is a quality picture. He's also, you know throwing media standpoint. He's going to mix it up so he's good for business in that regard as well, you know, oh it into it for sure. Yeah, you know, so so why not I don't you love that idea. But sometimes you have to look around and say well it's the best available maybe go ahead and sign them. I'm not totally against it. Right and and especially when you look at the offense as a whole cuz and we talked about at the start of Season. Okay, if there's going to be one if the Red Sox are going to win games cuz it's 60 Game season Anything Can Happen. The Reds win games going to have be like thirteen to 2:13 to 12. The pitching isn't good. But the offense is really good really hasn't panned out that way especially when you have guys like Andrew benintendi who just aren't producing that the way that even close to what you anticipated the way that they would produce so the offense I don't think you have to do too too much too..

"So if you guys want to throw him out, maybe I considered the top of my dome, but he's going to be a free agent and twenty twenty four. So you have control for as long as review or a little bit longer we'll be on this team. That's a real plus when Pearson gets healthy, you have that already that's pretty good. I. Think if you're going to ask the prospects for Cleveland's pitchers, just throw everything at chamber. Okay Yeah more or you know they're down on xactly sack and he was looking pretty damn good that we've had a police. TORONTO. So there you go out. And maybe the price won't be so high and. I honestly with the Cleveland Connection, they wouldn't shock me that those conversations are taking place just because a know that farm system in I. Know It's been a few years but still allows guys they're they're Cleveland's they had something to do with. So many drafts Johnson's then true. Yeah. Now you're out wrong and you know just want to touch on the red sox again i. absolutely still think that there's GonNa be some trade of veterans off the Red Sox roster the only untouchable in my mind on the Red Sox and three guys right now Denver's. Pogue Arts and Vertigo just because they got him or David Price McKee back beyond that if you get really crazy. JD MARTINEZ ANYBODY I Heavy contract. But I can see jd Martinez being moved or Andrew Benintendi because I think they're growing very frustrated Benintendi and Benintendi still have control I. Know He's been absolute crap this year but I mean I know the outfield that we thought was going to be a point that needed addressing looking damn good right now for the Blue Jays with brick Banou Randall Grischuk and the Oscar and Lord escorial. Hell at Andrew Benintendi before it's outfielder at rotated there from time to time. So I think the red sox could be pillaged, and if you're not the only other area I would add is the bullpen. You can never have enough bullpen help and you're in the playoffs. Then I know our full of staff who knows what the rosters will be. COMPLA- off time. Looking some royals and in Kennedy would be a nice armed add at the back end of the bullpen. He's got starter stuff wasn't damn good starter for a little while and either pretty damn good reliever too. So I'm going to be looking up royals for Kennedy as well. novelist. Lists. He wasn't Anthopoulos trump. Speaking of the Royal Trump Rosenthal Zeman frigging most talked about guys in major, League baseball trades so far. So maybe everybody's overlooking Kennedy. Maybe Brennan you are right. We don't get an arm the starting rotation and is a nice way to solidify the actual rotation by freeing up a spot. For K. or whoever to come out of the bullpen and going to the rotation, and it's still have that same level of talent and they're the same Louis Ambulatory Hawkins..

"Is that something worth keeping an eye on this year? I don't think so, because I think that the good thing about Jake is that every every pitcher who's ever pitched has a preference of four catchers. Because you developed a relationship with people that sometimes goes beyond the pitcher catcher relationship. I know that when I first started playing for the best It was a young catcher that I really liked the mind. Leagues became really huge friends, and that was part of why I like to catch me. But I think Jake is one of those guys that you put a backstop back there, and he'll figure out a way to do it. So I wouldn't really worry about him too much. Everyone has a preference. But I don't know about you. But if I was pitching, I would like Wilson Ramos the bead behind the play because that means maybe a runner, too. Rob When you look at Seska this year have the expectations. Given the early returns have they gone out of whack? About what cess pit is? Khun B this year and that med line up I think so. You know, I'm not on that hyper building machine. I think you know what, what they're saying and what they feel. I think they have entitled to every opinion about that. The most important thing. I think that it's great that it feels like he's ready to go assess. It feels like he's gonna have a big year. I think that's half the battle When you're a guy coming back, wasn't played for a couple of years. But luckily my job is to assess How you play and you know that has started yet. So you know, I think it's goingto be this if he comes back and represents anything close. To the second half of 2015. Gonna be one of the greatest comeback stories I think I will ever see and capable at least and you know if he ends up being just a solid part of that line up I think it makes them a really lock for the postseason. And if he doesn't because of the injuries because of the time off, I applaud his efforts in getting back on the field. But again, I think all of us should just wait and see how he plays. Yeah. Ron Darling, is our guest Iran in terms of Michael Conforto. You know, I'm seeing a lot of, you know, predictions feel saying who's gonna be the Mets EVP this year and seeing some of those things, and a lot of people are saying Michael Conforto, and I think it's because people believe that he has this other gear. You know, he's probably got to be seeing some of these big contracts there. Give put around realize that you know if he looks like one of those guys, he's coming up on a contract. You're pretty fast, you know? What do you hope to see from Conforto right out of the gate. Um, his ability to do some damage against left handed. Starting pitching would be one. You know, there were times last year, We hit seventh and line up against left handed starting pitching. To me that that's almost a slap in the face to a guy like Michael Conforto. You should be a better hitter, a cz faras in the line up against left handed pitching, and I know he will be. I really like Michael. I like his talent. Work ethic all of those things. Sometimes it just takes guys a little longer to figure out some part of their game. I believe he has another gear. Also, like most folks, Remember his numbers last year were awfully good. Um, and expecting him to have another gear might mean you know, in 162 game season. You know, a 35 to 4110 to 120 R B I season. You know, I could see that happening for him. But you never know. I was talking to a friend of mine. You know, I'm from Massachusetts. And he was complaining to me about Andrew Bennett nd he goes. Why does an Andrew Bennett nd one of the stars of the game and I didn't have any answers for him? But I guess some Mets fans on DH when you're watching Michael Conforto, you feel like he should be like Benintendi Ah, Star of the game, year in and year out, And maybe this is the start. Ron, do you get concerned? We're chat with Ron, Darling Metz and Braves tomorrow afternoon could see all the action on s and why Rod you get concerned about this team defensively? Ah, and whether or not they're going to be games this year on which they look very sloppy defensively. I don't think you know they're not going to be an upper echelon Defensive team. We know that we've watched the last couple of seasons. You know, emphasise really wasn't On the defensive side of the baseball. So now they're kind of reaping. Ah, those bad seeds that that being said, I know they're putting a lot more emphasis on defense this year. I know you can't ask the guys to work any harder on defense than they have. But it's not going to be. You know, they're not. They're not in upper echelon defensive team, so they're gonna have Ah. Their times, but they don't catch the baseball or turned to like you think they should. That being said, Um, they are a flogging line up. Like I said earlier. I've never seen a lot of like there's since 2006. As far as complete and that is right, and Reyes Delgado and Beltran and Valentin I could go on and on, and they have depth, also with JD Davis and Tom Smith, who might not see a lot of playing time, so I feel like they're flogging. Is going to overcome any defensive weakness still have you know Ron with that being said in just a couple more for you. And thanks so much for being our guest today, about where Ahmed Rosario, you know, he did start to make some significant strides in the second half of last season. What's the expectation for him? Because I think that Mets fans right now are kind of hoping for the best, realizing that he's still very young but are not sold at Rosario. Well, maybe not in the slugging department. But if you watch baseball closely, the Oakland Athletics last year had a shortstop markets Simeon, who became an All star in an M V P kind of candidates. I'm not saying Rosario is going to go that far, but I think we talked about Conforto having another level. Certainly Rosario has another level. Also, just a tremendous athlete that you feel is just kind of learning the position of shortstop and if he ever taps in and gets it and uses that great athleticism You're gonna see on unbelievable player got great power that still not fully tapped yet, And it's going to hit for a high average with speed. I think he's a wonderful player. And you know, we spend a lot of time where I spend a lot of time listening to people Tell me how Rosario is going to be replaced. I think in a couple of years he'll be irreplaceable. Ronnie last one for me would be this year, You know, we'll see if baseball the playoffs are expanded by before first pitch tonight between the Yankees and the Nats insures air and cold, but 60 games. It's not 1 62 will see exactly what the post season It looks like. If they're those two sides are able to reach an accord. How would you view a champion this year? Um You know what? I I look at it this way. I think the country has been through and going through so much, Uh, baseball is coming back and just trying to fill some kind of niche. For some fans. And I think when all is said and done in 25 years from now, when they look at whoever one they're going to stay, boy, what a difficult year that wass and thank God we had a little ball toe watch late in the summer. I think that's how it's going to be viewed. And you know, historians will maybe view it differently. Astra. People might view it differently, but I'm just honestly happy that baseball's back. I think most people feel that way. I'll be happy when they crown a champion. I live in a place where there's a confluence of of Red Sox, Yankee and Mets fans and as I've been out today, just doing some stuff getting my son of birthday present facts..

"Right and the fact that he has the track record where I'm counting on all upside and I can't make that argument. Not Get the Red Sox appoint here though this next one craig again in the exact same mall Is the one that we do with shortstop lot? Amir grow junior against Rafael Devers. Both very similar players divers came in In two thousand seventeen and hit ten home runs as a two eighty four average and a three thirty eight Oh. Bp Next season struggled divers in four hundred fifty at bats. Twenty one home runs sixty six rabies a to forty average and a two ninety eight. Oh bp but then devers took off at thirty. Three home runs a hundred and fifty three eleven batting average and a three sixty one ob lottery grow junior after year. One fifty home runs fifty nine. Rbi a two seventy two batting average and a three thirty three OBIE P. Now I think Craig Vladimir Guerrero junior could take the step that devasted from two thousand eighteen to twenty nineteen. That was Denver's third season I think wad junior can take a extremely similar step going into season number two which would in turn theoretically could be Roger at midseason. Don't you think right now? I if I'm looking at these two just excited or being both fan bases because Dahmer's is what I think. The that Vladimir Guerrero junior is going to be as early as this year. And I don't see that being a problem with what we've been seeing in our off-season footage already especially in our new blues. He's in his best. Shame so it's far as it goes. I am literally barely pencilling. Rafael Devers is a win on this one. Because I don't think the C. I. Raviol- Denver's what we saw last year. That's his ceiling. He added Berry Spurt.

There's some ups and downs than that where I think that Vladimir Guerrero Juniors Bat is going to carry him around wherever the hell he wants to go so right now like I said on paper on barely given Raphael divers the win on this one over Vlad I agree chalk it up to the red sox but I barely I think we will revisit. At midseason both the verse bogaerts endeavors. Were slide and take a more convincing. Argument for Vlad will be made then Bow and bogaerts battle. But it'll be close so two points for the Red Sox. They're on that side of the diamond. There you go three more Craig. Three more left field right now. Penpal into Laura's guerrilla junior three hundred fourteen at bats only had forty or sorry twenty home runs fifty. Rbi to seventy seven average and a three twenty seven ob in five hundred. Forty one at Bath Andrew Benintendi. It's thirteen home. Runs with sixty. Rbi to sixty six batting average at three forty three. O B P very similar looking players when you look at stolen bases average an OB P for the most part I think Florida's brings us some more power than Benintendi does but where you leading here right now. I think they're the same player. I do like the upside. I seen alerts correal's junior especially knowing what his brother has done over the last few years trash cans inside love it. I love that red so now more junior over Andrew Benintendi and I think that's just because I haven't seen what I thought I would see from Andrew Benintendi after watching them in the minor leagues as much as I did. I agree I remember how much Red Sox fans were. Hyping up Andrew Benintendi to be this next superstar and it just kinda happened. He's a solid player. I would one hundred percent take Andrew Benintendi on this James Roster but Yeah I don't think he'd lived up to what people have thought he was going to be led to believe that he was going to be the next superstar in a red sox uniform and watching him play in the minor leagues. I was not questioning that at all. Run so all of a sudden to see him just kind of be. I'm going to say a good of very good outfielder. He is not a superstar. And.

Well the fans here in London, they are getting the taste of what we get on most Sunday night. Very extended.

Hitchcock's coming out to break up the meeting on the mound, Yankees lead at six one and again nobody out here in the bottom of this. They Red Sox home game. So they gave up two of their home games against the Yankees Fenway park. Calisthenics taking place out there. The Yankee bullpen some arm swinging some legs the game. Some hoodies being taken off. You think great school. They still use the phrase calisthenics. I think a lot of times they didn't even have any more kids, these kids. So all I long to problem all loaded up for Benintendi Tanaka kicks fires swinging a foul back to the screen at. It's nothing in one Benintendi. So here's a good one and talking to Benintendi today, the clubhouse the foul territory. Former outfielder do occur outfielder. That's one of the things that you notice I come to new ballpark. How long is my run from the dugout to my position Kinney with the Red Sox on the first base side Benintendi in left field? He's got a hike. Adia a one swaying, it a foul off the end of the bat towards the Yankee dugout now nothing to yet, he's playing the shift gregorious just to the right of second base. It is buddies, INTERPOL Gerns, having a chat, that goes glorious Torres and voi- on the right side. A steamy day here by London standards. I of around ninety. And up time call. Benintendi to seventy seven does have seven homers. L tied goal. Can stance on that left side for Benintendi. Deborah's third Bogart's at second Martinez.

"Really good at calling the game. You don't see a lot of the Red Sox pitcher shake off when he puts his fingers down zone is using Swihart more in the outfield. First pitch to Andrew Benintendi. It's not the first thing he connected solidly, but well fouled on the left field line. Struck out in the first inning. I four. Jeffy rodriguez. Me slight delay as the ball person retrieved that fell ball that bounced back onto the field. And now we're ready to go. A one makes him dance at Benintendi feet. It's one in one, here's a stat you didn't need. But his kind of interesting than ten hitting three sixty eight with two outs. About two outs in the first inning as not, not too well. All right. One in one. Take a strike on the outside corner, threats X do need to get him going in that has been a problem. And you wonder if Alex Cora at some point doesn't flop, that's and Benintendi and put the order back the waking had it Rodriguez again at one and two fouled into the stands by Benintendi. But I think what's complicated matters is the development of diverse. Who's now become the number three oh hitter. So when you look at balance Benintendi, left than vets, right? Endeavors, left Martinez. Right. And I think they're really liked that balance at the top of the line. Plus, the general post World Series funk that everybody gets the century. There has not been repeat World Series winner Fitch at one and two long fly. Ball deep, right? Field wealth out. This team certainly is capable of repeating. I think they're hardest job is going to be trying to catch the Yankees in the raise. But you get into October, we all know anything can happen, this Red Sox team certainly capable of repeating another one too coming from Rodriguez Benintendi, here, it is swung.

All right back to this game, we're going to see now, Jeffrey broddrick as the main pay off the Cleveland Indians, in the ongoing trade. With Washington last year first pitch to Benintendi is a strike. How is this possible? Andrew Benintendi three for thirty eight in the first inning, Jim. And a lot of people wondering why the Red Sox. Don't change the line and put bets in the leadoff spot, a one fitches fouled and its own to lash Mookie Betts was the leadoff it over Boston. They won the world championship in the off season. Outscores said he wanted to move. Beck's to the two spot. One and a half some traffic when he's in front. The only problem is Benintendi is not provided the traffic for bed. So it hasn't quite worked yet. Here's the two from Rodriguez swung. This made quick work of Andrew Benintendi, who's now three for thirty nine in the first inning. Yeah. Made quick work in the curveball is how he put them away balls as best secondary.

"All right hour. Two unfolding. We are flying tonight. I was really good converse. Ain't nobody like flying off the handle jumping off the defense in the world is over joy about who's washed up and finished. I think there is clear and obvious concern in justification for those feelings, but I really enjoyed the conversation about Joey, and it's not I enjoyed the conversation. I don't enjoy the topic. If that makes sense because I'm a big Joey Votto guy for years. I think it would be fair to say I've been labelled a Joey Votto apologised, I find it to be a very uncomfortable conversation difficult conversation to have because watching him now is difficult to watch. There's that from a performance standpoint. And then there's the monetary side of all this and how it impacts the reds going forward. If he's not near the level. He has been in previous years when this team in this market is still on the hook for one hundred twenty five million. To Joey Votto for at least four more years after this season. Are I want to add to the conversation in this hour? We'll grab the calls on hold. But I want to add this because I just think this is one of the coolest things I've ever heard. And I don't think we spend enough time appreciating and talking about the bigger picture of this of what I'm about to lay out tonight in Fenway park. In a matter of minutes. A pitcher for the Seattle. Mariners is going to step to the mound named Eric Swanson. At a hitter for the Boston Red Sox is gonna dig into the batter's box named Andrew Benintendi. Eric Swanson pitched at Marymount high school. Andrew Benintendi played at Madeira high school. Both schools in the Cincinnati hills league too small, Cincinnati suburbs. What three four miles apart? Seven years ago yesterday they faced each other in the Ohio high school baseball playoffs. Seven years later. They will face each other at historic Fenway park. I just can't get enough stuff. Like this. I got an Email from Michael Hanley one of the assistant coaches in the Marriott baseball team this week with this information. He said, hey, just a heads up in. Also sent me some stuff that Andrew Benintendi, dad has written for a piece in the Boston Globe this week about this. And I just find it fascinating -ly cool that something like this happening. If you go back to may ninth two thousand twelve the Madero Mustangs are coming off a state championship defeat in two thousand eleven they were looking to make another run in the Ohio division three Turney in the second game of the state tournament Madera faces Mary Marymount Mustangs vs warriors. Andrew Benintendi, Erik Swanson. I two times up Eric Swanson struck-out, Andrew Benintendi. Late in the game. Benintendi hits a solo home run. Madeira eventually wins the game to nothing and advances after the twenty let's see Eric went to the junior college ranks out high school after twenty fourteen he got drafted by the Rangers in the eighth round. And that in the in two thousand sixteen the Yankees traded Carlos BELTRAN to the Rangers in exchange for three guys including Erik Swanson, and Eric stayed with the Yankees until he was traded to Seattle late last year and the deal for James Paxton and Eric got called up for the first time couple of weeks ago got his first major league win last Sunday against Cleveland, six shutout innings. He gave up one hit. You know, what Andrew Benintendi is done. Here. Young rising star in the game rookie of the year. You name it. And tonight that games. First pitch is is now underway when they go to the Bob or the first inning. I just is. I'm describing it again. I just I just get so outstanding that Erik Swanson is going to climb out of the dugout steps in Fenway park toe. The rubber look in for a sign in Andrew Benintendi is going to step into the batter's box and seven years ago yesterday they were doing it in an Ohio high school baseball state tournament game representing high schools three four miles away for each other. I don't think we spend nearly enough time appreciating the talent that has come through Cincinnati greater Cincinnati northern Kentucky when it comes to major league baseball. I was thinking about this today at lunch, and we were working on our list. If if we had a list of the ten greatest Cincinnati greater Cincinnati northern Kentucky high school players that went on to play in the major leagues. I mean realize just some of the names on this list and some that may not make the top ten alternately. But I mean, you could do a list of fifty sixty seventy of guys who played around here that made it to the major leagues. In fact, I wouldn't mind entertaining, maybe for a segment, if you if you have someone in mind that you watched made specifically if you've got a match up you watched I don't know that I don't know that there would be a whole lot of occurrences of future pro facing off against future pro in a game around greater Cincinnati Kentucky. But if you remember watching somebody. He play around here over the years that went on to play in the majors. I entertain a call at five one three seven four nine seven thousand one eight hundred the big one pound seven hundred on AT and T if you have a story, I mean, I think it would be reasonable to say if we were thinking of number one on the list, it would be Ken Griffey junior. I think probably are list would included in no particular order you go Ken Griffey junior. You'd have Pete Rose. You'd have Barry Larkin. You'd have Dave Pirker who would have to be on that list you'd have. You'd have Dave Justice on that list from Covington. You'd have buddy bell on that. I mean, just thinking just off the top of my head think of those names. I just gave you Ken Griffey junior. Pete Rose berry Larkin. Dave Parker buddy Bill and Dave Justice. And that's just scratching the surface. From around here. I would love to know the last time this is like for stats Inc. Or the Elias sports sports bureau. I'd like to know the last time not specifically here anywhere that two player squared off against each other. I'm looking pitcher hitter in a high school game and then faced each other in a major league game. I'm sure it's happened. I'd just like to know the last time it happened. And the combination of players that that had happened with. I cannot think Michael Hanley enough for sending me that Email this week. I've been excited all week to talk about this tonight. And of all things it's happening. I wish it was on TV up on the up on the monitor here. I wanna see because I would imagine there's got to be like a grid on each of the guys. I mean, can you imagine seven years almost to the day? Gotta have a grid on their face. I mean, you'd think I would imagine they talked before the game. I would imagine both fan the Swanson family and the Benintendi families are at the game tonight audited. Unbelievable scenario unfolding I love stuff like that. We'll take some calls.

"I think you could go we love yelich a year ago. Oh. We did we love we had them in the third round. Okay. I'm just I'm saying what changed he had a chase Headley second half. I'm not saying it's chase Headley. But he had he had that kind of a second half. And now he's a top ten player. I just I can't do it. And I haven't close Kyle. You're saying that again, I think it's possible. Benintendi, catches them this year. I two I actually do too. I really do tristen again yelich yelich my lead. My do not draft list. If you have to spend the eighth pick to get him. I can't do it on raw talent. I don't find that completely inconceivable. But all of the numbers right now suggest that that's crazy talk that Benintendi is better than this year. They don't because we you know, he's going to drop ten home runs off that. Well, that's what Ted Benintendi doing. I'd say, yeah, it's very likely. He would but in that ballpark. It gives them the best chance at a high Homer to fly ball rate. So I mean, there's going to be regression, but he's a regression down to twenty eight homers or regression down to twenty two homers such a huge difference here. So according to ESPN's projections. We have yellow projected for twenty five home runs and Benintendi for seventeen. If I told you those projections for true, except that Benintendi got ten more homers, which is incredibly feasible for modern baseball. Like, that's I think that's where this is more conceivable is that it projectable outcome for yelich is mid twenties, and it's a reasonable outcome. But maybe not projectable for Benintendi. Now, what makes you say that adding ten homers to Benintendi is that projectable? No, no, no. That's what I mean. It's unpredictable it's feasible within. But what makes it feasible because he's the player, and it he's in major league baseball where the ball goes over the fence a lot. Okay. But now working against him is that he's in a much worse ballpark situation for left handed power than Chris geologists. Right. I'm saying, yeah. I'm saying it's within like eightieth or eighty percents. I'll in the middle. Like, I'm not saying that it's it's likely. I'm just saying that would you be absolutely shocked if Andrew Benintendi hit twenty eight home runs. No, okay. That's kind of what I'm saying. I don't think it's I don't think it's a high prominent I wouldn't get off on for it. I wouldn't draft report for I want to see him get. I mean, it's the same problem. He went back to the ground ball ways. Like he was going the wrong direction. They're like I was saying needs to go in the right direction. They both have got to improve.

"But usually it waits 'til like pitchers catchers report or like midway through spring training. When the beat writers have to rate something, and they don't know what. Because nothing is actually happening. So then you get the stories about people are counting us out. And you never know if every possible thing breaks, right? And also things that we can't even -ticipant right now. And every other team gets hurt and plays poorly. Well, we could sneak up on some people. Anyway, you can find that for every team every year. It's a it's a new year why not be optimistic about your team when you go to spring training. And your team is together. All the kids all the veterans of. You're just doing like interest squad stuff and you're seeing guys batting practice. You guys throw bullpens as a player, you must think. Like, oh, yeah. We got a lot of talent. We're going to do it. We got a lot of these players. It's some of the best players in the world. And they are by like the best thousand players. In the world. But the problem is when you go play a game against the Red Sox in like may. And you see your pilot crap royals team going up against like, Mookie Betts and JD Martinez in Chris sale and Zander Bogart's and all the other Andrew Benintendi, and then all the other pitchers in the hitters. It were Nunez it his game used bats. Although understand he's down one from his previous collection. I don't know how you then. So where where you are. Now, the royals are about as far away from playing a good team as you can be like they've all the memories from last year, our gone, they faded into a fog and the always remember good things remembered things as being better than the work. Yeah. Fifteen and thirteen September. That's right. Yeah. Great way to finish. But they're also it's just the new year. The holidays are over your good mood, and you're not even thinking about how things look for the next season. But holy crap. Are the royals going to be bad? They're going to be a bad team. They're gonna get destroyed unless I dunno seven seven players breakout and have all-star caliber seasons, then they might be in the thick of the wild countries. They got some weapons get some potential out there. All right. What what would a team have to be like, what would what would the players have to be in a roster for seven to be like, actually? No, we don't have potential. What does that? Where is what is potential? Yeah. Everyone has potential, but if you were a player, would you look at things this way because this is how you approach hockey, right? You're a hockey fan, and you don't look at hockey projections, an advanced hockey sets, you just want to appreciate it as a fan and not know too much. If you were a player, if you just suddenly had the talent to be a player, and yet, you were still you, and you had all your knowledge, would you just stop looking at stats and stop looking at projections, which you want to be able to convince yourself that hey, we got a couple of guys that they could break out. Or would you just be sitting there in the clubhouse thinking we're projected for sixty three wins this year? I think you have to you have to convince yourself. I mean, you should have some understanding of how your team is perceived. Whether you're in the highest you're the middle tier at the lowest here, but you can't I don't think you can go into a season just thinking like what does it even matter? What I do because just the wrong way to be motivated, you have to think that you're working towards somebody. Because Widmaier field is going to have five and a half months of acknowledging that is royalty terrible. At least give him the first two or three weeks of being like, maybe we won't.

He's no longer out there. He was signed by the Rockies to a new miners contract. Does not include an invitation to spring training. That's a it's a scary sign. But yeah, okay.

World Series expert picks: Will Red Sox or Dodgers win it all?
"Teams after I saw every one of them playing person Red Sox Astros, Yankees, Indians brewers dodgers and that order. I absolutely think the Boston Red Sox have a better club that the dodgers. And I think they'll win this in six or seven I agree on the six and seven. I don't see us going to sweep like so many people do and part of it is there's not a lot of experience on both sides against you know, the top tier pitching Manny Machado in. Brian dozer have seen Chris sale at ninety seven ninety two and done some damage against them. And the same thing goes with Clayton Kershaw JD Martinez being in the, you know, the front of the order in owning Kershaw relatively in in eleven at bats. Do you sense that the key to the series is the field period? And who could feel out the other team quicker? Well, I think that's part of it. But in a short series in for me in any any series. It's about the pitching in. I am concerned about Chris sale. I'm not as concerned anymore. As much as I was about Kershaw. He's got the Kershaw. Although he's more of a craftsman. Now, you've got three lefties going for the dodgers you got to in the rotation going for the Red Sox. I'll take my chances with the right handed hitting Boston Red Sox against those three lefties. I think that could be a big big advantage when you are looking at a JD Martinez in the middle of the order, Mookie Betts, Bogaerts Nunez, those guys that hit from the right side. I think they're going to do some damage in Fenway. I think it's gonna be a different game in LA. You know, I I worry about them pitching to die like, Cody Bellinger. For example. I think he had to keep the ball up on him. He's an uppercut swinger. You put the ball down. You may never see it again. I think these are pretty quick pitchers at I think the way they pitched the opposition is going. Is going to determine who winces, and that's not a genius comment. Are they it's all about the pitching, no doubt? And I think the way that the the Red Sox has set it up where they have Chris sale going game one David price game two, and then the unknown so ripper Selo and Nathanael have all the will be coming out of the pen in the first game or two depending on what goes on in. Do you sense it they're they're protecting themselves from a a short start from occur sailing game one? Right. I think that's exactly what they're doing. I don't think I would even though they did it all year long. I don't think I would pick up these back to back. I think they are doing it. Look, I think Alex Cora was the manager of the year. He and bo-, you know, bowl mill with the athletics. I don't say anything that guy does. But sale, you know, just coming back from the hospital probably lost a couple pounds said he couldn't afford to lose place at the game of his life. Can he do twice in a row? I think that can that's why I think the Red Sox are a little bit better team at this point of the year much better during the season. But you know, you gotta give credit for the dodgers. They scrapped themselves back into this. They one and I give him credit. I just don't think I think they're going to get get up managed. I think Alex Cora and the Red Sox front office is gonna do the job. A former staffer the Astros and Mariners currently with clubhouse corner dot com is kind enough to join us here. Cambio tonight. Drew harvard. Kevin Franson, we are previewing Dame one of the World Series tomorrow night at Fenway Red Sox dodgers Clayton Kershaw. Chris sale. We've been talking about the pitching birdie. I do want to get more into the offense on both of these teams. We're talking about a dodger team who set their franchise record two hundred and thirty four home runs this year. And then he had the Red Sox knocked around. The Astros was twenty nine runs in five games. Jackie Bradley, jR, driving and nine in the AFC. Yes. So tell me about the offense for both of these teams. And really who do you think has the biggest advantage? But I still think it's the Red Sox the wildcard for me could be mad Kemp he won't be starting at D H. They have to of course, and us mad count in their order in the middle of the order behind Machado and in front of Brian dosier. They're using dosier as well. It's mad Kemp that kind of scares me on the Red Sox. He's the great unknown. He can hit the gaps. He can hit the ball over the played as well rested. He had a terrific first-half tailed off in the second half. He's the guy that when you put put all the chips down now Matt Kemp may pick him up. So he's a guy that scares me in the line. David freezes quietly under the radar. They have some weapons. No question. We all know what Justin Turner can do we've seen. What Chris Taylor can do. This is a very very good club. You've got a pitch to bell. And you're like I said they've got to keep the ball up. The bed is is make them swing at it. Get away from the uppercut swing. Yes. Of course is dangerous. But on the other side of the ball, Mookie Betts. You know, Mookie Betts when I saw him first off in the Arizona fall league. He was playing second base. He was far enough of the best athlete in the air that year. This guy makes things happen. Then he's followed by Benintendi. And granted he's a left-handed hitter. But he can smack the ball, and how do you pitch to JD? So I think these are very well balanced teams. But I think pitching and Fenway is going to be a little bit too much for the dodgers. And I think they're going to lose at Fenway, maybe two games. And then we'll see what happens from there. Yeah. I think it's huge. If you know, especially the the Red Sox hold serve then they can play around a little bit not play around. But having Mookie come in and not really be afraid of like he's going to cost us. Oh, no. Because when he was there this year and even in the past that you could play. Yes. So much range. We all know that. No question about it holiday. Would you like to pick up a Nathan? The scrapping. You know? How would you like to have a number three starter name Nathan Valdez control the ball a hundred miles an hour who the dodgers had at one point. And now he may win a game against you. I mean, there's so many corks to this when you can get a guy like a ball deep during the season as your number three starter. You know, I just love it. I love it for both teams Verney who's your who's the guy you worry about more at the back end. Is it kenley or kimbrel kimbrel against this team? By the way, one for thirty one guys that are on the in the lineup for the dodgers won for thirty one against him. Well, I would never ever say a bad word about kenley Jansen. Is on his game right now. He scares me. But the Red Sox may put these away before its time believe me, and if they can then kenley Jansen if they can't then kenley Jansen is to be reckoned with the guy is still great. I feel sorry for what he's dealing with. And I think he's gritty gutsy, but you know, kimbrough's no slouch either both. These bullpens are really really strong. These are these are two good teams. I don't think they're the best two teams. I think these are two good teams. What's your thoughts on Manny Machado? And just the way he's been pretty demoss postseason. I am old school my friends. It made me sick to my stomach to see what he did it at first base. Tasers secular. It makes me sick to my stomach to see him going into second day slake that and I think the thing that made me the sickest is when you say hustling is not my Cup of tea on a scout, my friends and the first thing that we fill in. There's three things can this guy play is he better than what we have. And number three. Can you play for us? And for me on my form. No he cannot play for us. There are teams that would love to have him though. Run to him. That's fine. You put that guy in the mid west or in some cities, you put them in San Francisco and watching my hustle watch. What happens for me? It's a way over the top. I didn't like it. I don't like it. And I think it's going to hurt him. I I. I think the one team that everyone talked about is the Phillies in him going to I'm calling because out here. He he killed. Yeah. Try this or New York or any other big market that he's projected to go. What do you think is agents said the reaction of his agent when he read those comments, please. You just saw it. You saw him hustle. You saw last game. He played hustling kept his mouth shut. But you know, what damage is done. He is not the type of guy that I think is gonna win you the pennant. I like us a scrapper much more. Yeah. You can knock the fence down. But you know, it's not all about him. You give me a Justin Turner any day of the week. I'll take that Bernie. I think I'm sorry. Go ahead. Why don't you finish your thought? Go ahead. I think in general this dodgers team is a little bit over the over the top for me. I think pointing to your muscles rounding, you know, your home run your home run trots a bit over the top for me. I was just curious on how fast that switch is flipped when you see a guy like minimum Chato acting this way because we see a pro sports, Bernie talent will usually Trump everything else. Yes it well. And that's why I said there are teams that are going to run to them they wanna badly and again for the clubs that I was with with the Houston Astros with the Seattle Mariners. I don't think we would have taken that type of demonstrative behavior. But the game has changed and you either love it or or get out of it and don't pay any attention. I happen to love it. But I don't have to like what I see from some players believe me ninety nine percent of these guys are much different. They're wonderful guys. And all it takes one guy to show off like that. And give other people a bad name. I didn't like it. I guess that clear. Hey, we got you a prediction with the Red Sox in either six or seven but tomorrow night who is your guy is it sale is occurs show. Or is it somebody else? No Kershaw gets game one. I think Kershaw is pitching very well. I worry about sale I worry about about the hospital the stomach. I don't know if he's less weight. I haven't seen him.
MLB -- Boston Red Sox keep Houston Astros within their reach
"Is way out of trouble. Shabby. The legend do worked on ESPN radio and the game last night with Jessica Minoza with that call in the bottom of the first inning, the Red Sox struck, I recommend Grasset or swang in a live Dr, bass it out of the right center field. Cut it off as Rettig bet. Surround third. He's into score the Red Sox two batters in Leded wanted nothing. You could tell the Gary cole- was struggling for his secondary stuff and Rafael Devers took advantage to two on the way swing ground basically to left via Benintendi scores Bogart. So stop it. Third as federalis holds them up. It's an RBI single Deckers the other way. And it's too dummy. David price in the Red Sox had a quick to nothing lead, but in the top of the second inning, the Astros counter-attacked. Swing a line drive, fair ball inside the first base line into scores Correa Maldonado on his heels Springer into second. Just like that. The Astros have tied it up to to a soft line drive that just hung in the air and hung in the air and Pierce diving wasn't able to reach it in the top of the third. The Astros took the lead, here's a three to swing and a high fly ball left field that will back there on its way dawn over the monster Marwick Gonzales, a two run blast. The Astros have a four, two lead. After the game, Garrett, Cole would talk about what happened next is maybe being the pivot point because he did not have shutdown inning and the bottom of the third inning. After the Astor's took the lead, this is what happened. Jackie Bradley Jr. the plate bowl turns down the rubber now to one. Swing and a high fly ball towards the left field corner Gonzales swords Alon that was off the lobster into score Bogart's Pierce autists heels here comes Denver's Bradley's into second Genesee Bradley Jr. clears the bases, Red Sox by Iran Boston on top five four is that was high up onto the monster just inside the poll state of the park. It was still five, four in the bottom of the seventh inning. Lance mccullers junior was on the mound behind the plate Martine Maldonado and look Lance mccullers union as one of the best breaking balls in baseball in Maldonado acknowledged that what happened in the bottom of the seventh inning, which was repeated problems. Catching baseball may have been because his unfamiliarity with that great curl ball mccullers give lesson. Now it's left up to Bogart with bets at third to down the pitch outside off the global Maldonado. Haney Red Sox have an insurance run that one was up at a way Maldonado couldn't keep it in front and Mukhi bets, grants home six, four, Boston Rick came out of the Red Sox bullpen to throw the top of the eighth inning attacking headers and then Mookie Betts applied the coup gras in the bottom of the eighth inning. One live base hit out of the right field. That's with the knocked Evers around. Third, he's to score bet slides into second. It's an RV I double Mookie delivers than it seven to four in the top of the night. Then Craig kimbrel emerged from the Boston Doug ad. And you remember what happened at the end of the Anki series. He struggled to find home plate and there was some anxiety in the stands at Fenway park as Kimball started at night inning, and the Astros began to rally on swang in a ball ham left field towards the monster, and that's high off the monster. Now to Vail take the turn will hang on at first. He kinda limps back in there. That's an RBI single off the monster. And now it's seven, five next to the plate, Alex bregman who was red hot at the end of the regular season, the Red Sox staff, it made it clear decision not to pitch to him six walks in the firm. Two-game series. Plus he was hit by a pitch in another plate appearance in this case, Kimbrell had to throw them, and this is what happened regmunt back in a way to get a one, the pitch swing and a high fly ball, left field Benintendi near the wall and makes the catch, and that is the ballgame. Just the base of the green monster hold it in and kimbrel by the skin of his teeth to close it out and the Red Sox. Hang onto what it in the Astros clubhouse after the game bregman was asked about whether or not he thought he got it. He said, no, if I got it, it would have been out in the street. Mookie Betts was on the field after the game, and I caught up with them. We did great. No, yet out. We've proven that we've been in both games. Everyone was second one and we'll just continue to play are going into Houston. When asked you about a couple of pitchers, David price, you know the scrutiny that's been on early game, keeps you guys right there. You guys win a game. He starts. Yeah. I mean, he's a great pitcher, you know, no matter what people say goes out. He are thirty million dollars a year. For reason he showed about record cells work out of the bullpen. He's, you know, he's done great. Starting out of the bullpen anywhere you put up. You know, he's got. And compete Fisher. AJ Hinch. The Astros manager talked about Mukhi bets ignited from the very beginning of the game. I mean, this place energy of this place when he comes up too bad is is really electrifying. So when you try to minimize much as you can in front of them, we didn't do a great job of that today. But from the the first bat- on, he kind of set the tone from the very beginning. So it's why he's very much MVP candidate. AJ was asked also about looking bad's, going around the bases in that seventh inning to make the score six, two, four at that time, give a lesson the insurance from this word and the seven Makiko around the basis how unusual to see that with with its. He went around the basis that have to put a ball and play in on. That's those are tough in this in this type of series is tightly CEPA games. It's a long characteristic. I mean, obviously, mccullers abroad mccullers ended try to keep it a one run game with the way that this series can go. And it's almost like a Tiger Balm for me. So last to a couple of nasty breaking ball, just look like, you know, Martinez lost it in the people in center field or just got a little bit got a little bit lax back. There had a little tough time and Mukhi went around the bases. I walk and then no-ball plane is of scorn before this series began AJ Hinch raved about Mukhi bets in his impact on the Red Sox. And Alex Cora was asked about Hinch comments on mochi and his play. Give lesson. Listen. A game AJ called Mukhi ticking time bomb, and he kind of went off tonight. Do you think it was more himself tonight? You said you wanted to get on the air did a couple of times? Yeah, Jesus Margai they went to Stanford.
