"Is. Toni Bernette who's picked up? From texas. He's he's starting out on the injured list as well. And then been avoiding for a long time. But Addison Russell will be on the restricted list to start the season. So there's that. Yeah. Yeah. That's a very unfortunate situation. And yeah. Most plans they're saying yes cubs fans. Are are are most are not happy that he's even on the team. I've just try not to think about it too much. I mean, I'm I don't know that he'll stick around. I don't know that he can you know, it's it was just you know, what what he did was was horrible. And this is spent as is appropriate. But it's you know, what I've been seeing in on Twitter and other podcast is to see he's sort of unmentionable member of the cubs are for now. And I think most people are just hoping he'll just go away. And I guess we'll see what happens right? It's a shame because he's got he's a talented ballplayer. But things like this. If killed more than. A few football careers, and they should. Oh, yeah. They should. Yeah. So, yeah, it's, you know, the this is it's a family sport. You know, it's America's pastime and stuff. And as just, you know, the these players, you know, whether liked it or not whether they're prepared to be or not are are often looked up to enroll model so just can ignore when when that kind of stuff happens off the field. So that's that's all I'm gonna get into it at this point. That's that's plenty. I think we wanna keep the opening day episode. Nice and fun. But yeah, we had avoided it for six and a half episodes. Yeah. So there it is. But I, you know, just one last thing I wanted to mention actually probably should've mentioned other segment, but I just wanted to mention about Nico Horner drafted there were his he was their first pick last year two thousand eighteen he had an incredible spring training. He he's. He's very young. He's got some work to do yet on the lower levels. But he's going to be that's a name to watch out for he in seventeen at bats this spring. Unbelievable. Four seventy one batting average one point six. Oh, nine P S just just small salable. But that's yeah. That's sure small sample. But really, I mean incredible. He's only twenty one years old. Just I got a mentioned nego Horner because fern lotta. Let of cubs fans are excited about that. I think as we go through the year, we'll touch on some of the minor league players a little bit more. I haven't even talked about guys like Casten era or Luca Sager. Some of the other night names coming up we've been so focused on the the big league clubs because quite frankly, these are two of the best in the National League. We wanna talk a lot about them. There is some interesting for both clubs. So it's something that we will think when we'll mention the, you know, once the minor league season gets going to you know, as things happen down there. We'll we'll certainly mention and keep an eye on who's who's hot down there. Because you know, I think with both Madden and council the way they manage and the way just the way the how long the season is. And how pans out you there's gonna be some motion back and forth a little bit there. And you know, we want to be us. We don't want to just be surprised by name. We don't know when they come up. Instead be like, okay. Yep. That makes sense. We wanna keep. Yeah. We want to keep her listener. Informed on that stuff. You'll see names like Zac Brown starting at some point in the regular season for the brewers for sure. Yeah. We'll we'll always be touching a little bit surface stuff on what's going on in the miners who might be the options if somebody should go down another thing. I just wanted to touch onto creek counsel. Basically said he's not going to set a specific closer in light of Jefferson Canadian being out. Obviously, you're Josh hater usage is going to push back in ending or two which could be good news for the cubs since he normally dominates him in the sixth seventh. And then when you get gems Canabal, oh just saying, but he'll be doing though except Rizzo. What the one home run? Okay. Well, Hugh, haters, human omega. But anyway, it's going to be closer by committee. And that's kind of where we're at on that stuff, and I'm fine with that. I think there's a lot of great arms Taylor Williams never gets enough credit. He's going to be interesting to watch Jacob. Burns can bring the heat junior garra is a closer would be interesting. Lot of ground balls. I don't know. We'll see what happens. It's going to be. It's going to be such a fun start to the season. I can't wait. Yeah. Yeah. I guess one. I while we're about getting predictions here. Right. Yeah. I was gonna say that pretty much brings us into predictions. So I well, I just wanted to mention one thing really quick. I just got a mentioned David Bodey. And I'm seeing he's on a on the projected lineup for opening day against Texas. So I think that's pretty exciting. He's he's another one that will probably see a lot more of this this season as well. I he's in there. You know, certainly there's a designated hitter. So that's probably a plays a role heart and got in their buzzer. Yes. Starting in Texas. I forgot about that. Yeah. But yeah, you know, three games in Texas. Yes. Yes. Sorry. I'm that's so mean, but anyway. Yeah. Anyways. Just mentioning that. And and so probably going to see how moral lead leading off most of the time and then by Bryant Rizzo Byas, which which you know, we talked about two three four that's looking to be the projected to three four for opening day and probably much much of the season. Depending on you know, I think well Amora and zobrist my zobrist might see some time leading off if it's you know, right handed starter with Elmore off, it's a left-hander things like that. Anyway, just mentioned David Bodey is another piece in there. You know, he had that epic game winning grand slam walk off grand slam last year. So that was awesome. But yeah, let's get to some predictions. Yeah. Let's do it. So we're looking at series one again, we're kind of focused on. Focusing in on our cubs Bruce series, obviously, that's the theme of the podcast. So you've got one to open with today or do you want me to do mine for? Yeah. I do I got a fun one. It's time to get a little hot and sweaty.

"And yelich isn't much older than him. And yelich ding near won a triple crown last year too. I don't expect the triple crown type level every year. What you're saying to me is by was close to that to other than the batting average was low. I I don't know how you can expect more out of him is there room for girls. Sure, I suppose I mean if he's going to turn into a hall of fame caliber guy, which isn't impossible. Well, I mean better than last year seems push. Yelich? I'm not necessarily saying better than has to come down. Okay. Continue sarah. I'm not necessarily saying better than last year. I'm just saying I think similar around the same slightly better slightly worse. But in that same kinda area I in if if he can improve his on-base percentage than than definitely better. I mean, he isn't a bad batting average. I'm okay with two ninety. It's more the strikeouts. That's something, you know. And I know I know he's interviews. He said, you know, that's he's well aware that something that that he's working on. So he's he's trying to get the patience and the mentality to not get overly aggressive and chase stuff that he knows. He can't hit that you know, his weak spots. You know that pitchers are continued to try to explain but even as much as they try to exploit him last year. He still hit two ninety. But yeah, if if he was we'll see what happens. Exactly we will. And it's going to be a good time. So in the end, you seriously gonna tell me that you think the cubs have the better lineup. I think the brewers obviously have the better lineup. Now, you can argue some things about you know, they're talking about moose stock us at second base. Which is interesting to say, the least, and it's something we're gonna get into much more later in spring as things shakeout show or moussaka second. How much does it really hurt? You these two managers though, they're both tinkerers they both like toy with the lineup. They're going to be doing a lot of double switching and the bench that these two clubs have our deep. Where's I I'm projecting? Something like a Kanye bronze Shaw granddaughter moussaka see type lineup. What are you projecting for the cubs? Because I want to hear your concept on wear. The cubs are actually better than the brews in that lineup. As far as do. We want to go by spot buy spot in the order, maybe not necessarily. I'm just I'm just wondering I think the brewers have well Bryan potentially the best lineup in nationally Ryan Rizzo by as two three four. Okay. I wanna focus through three. Let's look at two three four that those are fairly that's fairly likely, and let's talk about two three four Bryant Rizzo Byas. And and who who did you say you're projecting to three or four for the brewers? I'm probably looking at yelich bronze Shaw, but Bron can be flipped with Eddie Laar in the five hole. So it could be something like yelich egg Yarsha. Yeah. We think we know. We may. I mean shock could that's fine there that? Yeah. It's not going to be. I mean, Bryant and Rizzo are likely going to be right in there by as it's hard to say. I mean, it may depend on who's who the starting pitcher is and things like that. So that's understandable. But just a narrow it to who are your three horses. Well, that's gonna be probably yelich Aguilar. And you know, could be moussaka sun one day, Sean, another I think the horse that you're forget. Well, no, you focus that the two three four and really this. Bruise lineup starts at the one whole. That's the problem. You're you guys are very iffy. On your leadoff, Lorenzo Cain is what kicks this off. Okay. Well, that's fair. Okay. So one through four you're talking Kane at one, which certainly you know, does something to that lineup. I'd agree. Yeah. The yeah. I mean when you've got yellow in the two hole covered with either Braun or yard depending on who's hot. And then probably a lefty in the forest Bod if you're against right handed pitcher. Yeah. So I would say normally something like Cain yelich Braun and Shaw makes sense Brun only play one hundred games though. So let's go Kane yelich Aguilera Shaw. Okay. Because really eg is gonna play a lot more games than Broncos. Okay. Well, I mean, I have to say Kane. I mean, you probably got the one spot in the Burs lineup as a little better than the cubs. Just because it's kind of a question, Mark. I mean, some projections of saying Benz over I think it's going to vary significantly. I mean Rizzo led off a number of game last year. So. So it's really hard to say. But but yeah, just while you tried to cut the one spot out. I get it. I mean, I kind of see the I can kind of understand the philosophy of the leadoff, maybe not necessarily. Maybe being as important as the game used to be played the past remember leadoff hitter. Always was agree with that. Yeah. I mean, you always had someone with a lot of stolen bases high. Batting average high on base percentage, you know, so. Obviously, that's a little little different. But but yeah. I don't know. Well, I'd I'd say the brewers win the one spot. Kane is an awesome person to have their high on base percentage. Pretty good OB p to not VP but Opie s as well yelich in the two hole versus Bryant in the two hole. Regression the mean for normal performance from Bryant puts them pretty pretty level. But some pretty arguably. So I mean yelich found is power grew last year veasley coming from Marlins park Miller park makes a difference. But he's a young player developing power. Bryant is already a little more advanced on the power side. Yeah. Let's like he's tweaking some things as see tweaks and things it's odd season. And obviously I mentioned last last episode, you know, about his launch angle. Was was it changed something with the shoulder injury something he there, and he's he's spent a lot of time on that. So it's gonna be interesting. Apparently, I've said some some interviews and things like he's he's got his power stroke back. So that's gonna make a big difference in my book. I still give yelich edge because we know he's improving. He doesn't have an injury history. That's my opinion on it. You'd probably arguably disagree or say that could be about even the three hole sh you know, Aguilar versus Rizzo. I probably give you a little bit of the edge on resumed. Okay. Okay. His I don't know if you have his numbers up or not I can try and get egg LARs numbers up. We've got last season. You know, he was hot as heck to start the year last year didn't finish his hot. But he came back around in the playoffs the postseason. He was pretty solid. There are some moments that weren't so great, but thirty five bombs. To seventy four batting average three fifty two on base percentage. So that put him with an obese which is on base plus slugging for those of you that aren't aware eight ninety and I think that's one of the most important numbers in baseball. I think it gets overlooked when you're trying to talk about the potential explosiveness of a lineup. I think Opie s is really kind of where it's at for numbers. But we've talked you'll look at Rizzo. Yeah. We've talked a lot about Opie s you know, Rizzo last year he had he did have a little slump at one point. So last year was just I you know, in some ways touch below normal. That's why Madden slaughtermen the one spot in the lineup there for bed because for some reason that seems to take Rizzo out of his slump. I don't know why. But I something. Yeah. I don't know what that is kind of your Joe Madden magic. I guess but his his opiates numbers. He was eight forty six last year. Eight ninety nine the year before nine twenty eight. In two thousand sixteen when they won the World Series shirt. You know, he's usually kinda to ninety ish batting average or so he did only hit twenty five home runs last year. Whereas the previous four years he had over thirty home runs. He's usually good for around one hundred to one hundred ten RBI's every season. So so he started his decline is what you're saying. I wouldn't say decline. I mean, he's twenty eight years old. That's not. Oh, I'm kidding. It'd be twenty nine this year. He's he's. Yeah. So right and on the opposite side of that you'll ours been a late bloomer last year was by far is best season as his first really full season as a starter. He didn't even start the first month of the year. Remember themes was getting most of the starts. So that thirty five home run. Mark could be even better. He hits for good average. What if what you're saying about he was an MVP candidate? First half. What you're saying about bias and his potential for improvement. I think there's room for Jesus to improve as well. Yeah. Then cases could be a real player. I think I'll give you the edge with Rizzo just based on history. And you know, if you wanna talk defense, maybe a little bit too. Although Aguilera's cat lake at times. But yeah. Yeah. Those if can, you know, hey, sues hits that to seventy Mark. With forty home runs. I'm golden
