"Welcome back in like a little bulls because they're actually playing today isn't over Those days you got the White Sox, Cubs, Blackhawks and Bulls all playing As the Blackhawks have their first of their penultimate game. I was like using that word because I didn't know what it meant for the longest time. They're penultimate game, which means the next the last. Thanks for that. Yes, they played Dallas tonight at six. The Bulls are in Detroit at seven o'clock, the White Sox and Kansas City of 1 10. We got the game for you here at ESPN 1000 pregame, beginning with Jeff Miller at 12 30, the Cubs. Hosting Pittsburgh weather permitting at 1 20 on the marquee network, then Hawks play tomorrow and then the Sox Cubs in Bulls are all off. So it's one of those days where everybody's playing, and so we'll talk a little bit of bulls basketball. They got some things going on and joke. Ali had an interesting angle. It is column today in the Sun Times. But Lucas Giolito goes for the white sacks today and she Lido has struggled a little bit the Saxon not done really well and some of his outings this year they haven't given up a lot of run support, either. Even cats was on the pregame show the other day. And, um, talking about working with Giolito and some of the things she's trying to get done. I done a lot of stuff digging in between his last outing and what's going on, and I had our guys run some numbers, so I wanted to show him where he was That and one like you take out the Boston game. He's been throwing the ball exceptionally well and then to what could be doing better with right now. Compared to where this stuff was the last year location wise, there's some thoughts from improvement. I pointed that out to him. That's something that he worked really Dylan Julian's bullpen yesterday. It was really good, so we have some stuff that we're working on behind the scenes, but he's throwing the ball well. One game is not defined what he's done so far this year. Now there was a game of two outings ago where It appeared LaRussa left middle over too long. And after the game Jeez, ladles gas. He said. Yeah, I was out of you know, I was out of whatever, um He said. It would've been nice if LaRussa knew that he didn't apparently. And so do you. Tell him or just the manager. Come and say, how are you? Well, LaRussa said. I should have that's on me. Then he goes. I should have seen that he was out of gas. And I didn't And But if you're the picture, there's nothing you can always say. Listen, Come on out. I'm done, You know, Let him know. Yes, that you're pitching coach. No. Let someone let your textured Wall Street Fred. You could let him know It's not a pride thing Don't don't worry about, you know, coming out, and that's it. That's a good point to the catcher. Should you know Collins or whoever? I don't remember who it was that but but that's part of the catcher's job. Sure, you know, to know how how they're doing Once he sees it, he could just tell the guy so. Hey, I don't don't blame that's not all that LaRussa literacy took the blame for that, and a lot of people then said all along, he screwed up again. Okay. You can play that game if you wanted to. But Jill leaders gotta let him know what it's funny because we got a guy leave Lucas Giolito. He can go 11, 10, 1 15, And in that game, he went 114 pitches I think he threw And the weird part was he gave up a hit that they were that losing At 1 10, and then they left him in to throw away. Four more pitches is like, okay, you could have pulled him at that point. You saw that He was out of out of gas. At that point, the leads to go on. You're not keeping him in to get a victory, or anything s Oh, that was a little bizarre. But I'm eager to see today's outing because the Royals have lost seven in a row. And I'm listening to the pre game yesterday and Jeff Miller of the pre game and then when the game started with Conner McKnight And DJ. They're also talking that sometimes playing a team that's lost seven in a role. Is more difficult than playing team that's gonna winning streak because in baseball, you're bound to win a game. Okay, You've dropped seven in a row. It's do. Yeah, My dad would always say there do you know, and when the teams won six or seven and roll They're do. They're due for a loss. Okay, The Cubs have won five straight. They're playing Pittsburgh again. Today. You expect that comes to get a victory. Kyle Hendricks on the hill. But you don't know it goes that way. You know, not many teams win. Have huge, long winning streaks. That's why you know it. Zilong season you're gonna have, you know, absent flows throughout the whole thing. So I'm eager to see how Julietta does today because They could use a nice outing from him today, and then they get tomorrow off and then a huge then he got Minnesota coming in, and Minnesota is struggling right now. Minnesota good to see their tweet while 12 and 20 and they've got injuries there, center fielder Byron Buxton went out. So he's hurt. So you know, take advantage when you can you had starting Friday was 13 straight games against the Royals and the Twins. Hey, time to make a you know, get Hey, time to make a I see what she says. I didn't do it on purpose s O. The White Sox right now or five games over 518 and 13. And other half game had a Cleveland Kansas City's 2.5 back after their hot start. The Twins are 6.5 back in Detroit. It's way the heck down there, and that's you know, they come to get to play Cleveland and Detroit. After they wrap up their series today, so but watching cheerleader today will be interesting. I like to see grand. I'll hit the ball a little bit after four walks. I know he got a bases on base percentage. Just keep going up up up. That's a nice thing, But yeah, getting look if the pictures are there He's got a He's got to start hitting. We need him. Yeah. Are you believe right now? I mean, we're doing pretty well. But you know, people are going to get hot and cold. Sure, so we need everybody. Now to the Forbes thing I was going to talk about if you want to jump in. Still talk baseball jump in. We're gonna talk some bulls in a little bit. Forbes came out with their top 50 world's most valuable franchises. They do this, like every year they come up with and for the 60 year in a row. I think it is the Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable franchise not just in the U. S in the world in the world, I thought I thought some of the soccer franchises worm or valuable than the Cowboys. The Cowboys are worth because that's our international sports. I mean, everybody appreciates football. I think you know many out of this country, but they play only in the states. Okay, so this is the Forbes top 50. The Cowboys and number 1 55.7. Billion is what their their franchises and but Jerry Jones can't afford to hire any help. Yes, he wants to do everything but you know what you just said, is what I would have thought. You know, soccer international all this kind of stuff. Out of the.

Chris sale to that big contract. They say that the Yankees owner Red Sox this year. They're winning four times and is that really the reason that Dave Dombrowski out. I'm sorry I can't can't buy it. There's gotta be more than that. There's gotta be some other story. We'll wait a break and develop and to lose to the surface office. It can't be because the red sox are having a bad year and because of the Yankees have dominated them. The Red Sox ran away with the world series a year ago. Do you remember what they did to the Yankees to the Astros to the dodgers. Yes yes Dave Dombrowski out in Boston but I can't believe it has anything to do with baseball number two on on Monday night at Fenway Park in Boston. Red Sox fans were delighted when former Red sox slugger David Ortiz throughout the ceremonial first pitch before the Yankees Red Sox game fans were surprised to see him him the forty three year old Ortiz was released from the hospital in July and he's rehabilitating at home when you talk about what this guy's been or what's his first major appearance since the shooting and which he was shot back in his home of the Dominican Republic back in June what a great site what a great scene three time world series when winner known affectionately as big PAPI was met with a thunderous ovation from the fans it was great to see an when Ortiz told the fans quote first of all.

Wherever you listen to podcasts here comes the big interview listen and learn food so good now joining the podcast former Major League outfielder one of my favorites Bernard Gilkey who of course played eight for the cardinals the match the diamondbacks Red Sox and the Atlanta Braves for Nar was happening. What's going on. Oh my friend how you doing man doing great great great to catch up with you. What is Bernard Gilkey doing now. People WanNa know wow how well actually. I'm on the road just coming back from plan and the Golf Tournament in Chicago. I had the pleasure of Olympia feel so and so I'm trying to learn the game of golf a little bit and also still apply to the cardinals organization and I am a cardinal core coach and we do like mentor in the minor leagues all right well. Let's talk about the cardinals who are atop the NFL Central and you know that's a tough division with Milwaukee key and with the cubs of course tell me about the car knows why are they in First Place Bernard well. I think persistence they they stuck with it. You know they had a rough start well. They really got off to a really good start and they fell into you know a little a little sloppy a little slow start there you know but I think they stuck to their guns. You know and they believe in themselves and and they just just kept being persistent the locker room saying like it turned around really well. They seemed like a really tight grew tight knit. It Group of guys right. Now and management is doing well and evolvement the plan. That's what it takes that they are at. It's going to be a tight race. Use some good team is not gonNa make the playoffs when you think about as I brought up the cubs and the brewers Bernard of course you are from Saint Louis and I don't think this is you you being a homer but I've said this and you played in some great town. You played in New York. You played in Boston you. He played in Atlanta but I think the Saint Louis fans and I think say Lewis has the best baseball fans in the country. I always said that what do you think about Saint Louis and the crowds well. It is outstanding you know you you. You must look at it. They always come out. They support no matter data. What and you know once you look at different fan base in different cities and you see how the single crowd even how receptive they are to the the the baseball player in general even visitors they come out and they recognize and very knowledgeable about the game and how it should be played and they are just one hundred percent saying Louis Cardinals fans but they are great baseball fans in general none no doubt about it. I've always said that and like I said there's so many great towns put the something about Saint Louis and all that red when I used to go to cover games it was amazing. talk about the home runs in baseball are you. Do you like it. Don't like it too many ships well. What do you like about baseball right now. What don't you like about baseball. You Know Baseball is fun right now. I do believe you know even with the whole Lonzo Johnson and the numbers. These guys are putting up I think the Homerun makes it fun. The shift makes it very interesting. I think the shift it really makes the player become wall player not just a one dimensional player pool hitter you know to this. You have to use the whole field you know so it. It takes a hit from hitter's perspective. They have to use the whole field so it makes them even though they they hit a lot all to be exciting baseball player. You have to use opposite field base. You know still some vases Jason. Make things happen. I think baseball side right now another thing that makes it exciting and is all of the players news and their sons plane and made in the major leagues can you can you get over like how many players we just saw. Vlad Guerrero junior right. He's up with Toronto. we've seen a number of other players all of a sudden start to play in the major leagues. Why do you think that is and why there are so many players now in baseball and their DADS ADS are pudge. Rodriguez son is a pitcher I could go on and on and on about how many players why do you think that is tat tease juniors another guy why does shields right we could go on and on. August the list. Why is that I think we came up and in era where the kids like the teams I played on the kids were always allowed to be around the ballpark so these kids they were groomed from from birth in the ballpark you know so they they got so accustomed to being around and then they fall in love with the passion the game you know and and they get a head start they get to see major league players. They get to see how the game really at its best at its highest level how it's played and you know they gotta Cincinnati at an early age I think they could just really real golf and organizations. They accepted that they they invited that they they let him in. The clubhouses and the kids are up in the clubhouse. Yeah I think that's been good for baseball. when you see like a cody bellinger what kind of player he is and you know remember. His Dad was a utility. You play bellinger when you see a guy like that. What do you think a cody bellinger big time home. Run hit the dodgers and and these star. He is outstanding ball so he's fun to watch. you know my dad movie. We used to sit down and watch baseball if I if he was here today he would see a baseball player like cody bellinger and he would say that man is dangerous. Injures Nazi is Dangerous Dangerous Baseball player offensively defensively strong on so he's always making something happen happen for the good of the team alright. His name is Bernard Gilkey of course Saint Louis born and bred and wound up playing playing for his hometown Saint Louis Cardinals Bernard great catching up with you man. Thank you so much rob. It's always a pleasure anytime. I'll be here before you all right. Stay well. It's time for the pocket protector central the analytic numbers. You need to know well. It may be F S One's Anthony masterson is his name. BS analytics is his game. What you got forced Anthony I Robert. One of the beauty of baseball is that no park is the same in hockey basketball or football. There are rules and make the playing field the same but not so the national pastime that individuality can certainly certainly skew stats that with three hundred ten foot fly ball in your Yankee Stadium Rob the home run and every every other park. It's usually a fly out now..
"byron buxton" Discussed on The MLB Show
"Well, let me just tell you that I am known locally possibly nationally as a Byron Buxton Bobo in every year. I say this is gonna be the it happens. And then every year it doesn't. So of course, I'm gonna say this is somewhat real in. It's going to happen. And then maybe three months from now, you can just add it to the list of seasons. I've been wrong about buying Buxton. But it's gonna I mean, you write that called every year in sooner or later, it's gonna it's gonna turn out to be right? Just he announced his retirement, and I print out all the columns, and I just have some sort of ceremonial burning of them in my backyard or something, but there there are changes in his approach that's been true to extent in pastures to. But he is there's a lot less sort of movement mechanically in his swing and the some of the stuff that we just talked about on the pitching side with. Twins are really trying to get away from kind of what was known as the twins way. For for longtime initially in the minors in in the majors when he was first up. It was hit the ball on the ground and run you gotta work on your bunting. You gotta go. The other way all the stuff. People have heard and read about the twins over the last thirty years. And now, the they're basically saying just because you're fast doesn't mean that you have to be a guy who is all on base percentage of no slugging, and they're also encouraging him. And basically the whole lineup has taken this approach but Byron Buxton, especially as he struggles when he's behind in the count because he's not great. I don't think at recognizing the difference between sliders and fastballs any chases a lot outside zone. So they basically said to him if someone throws you a good fastball early take a rip at it in his first and second pitch of play two branches. Swing rate is you know, skyrocketed from past years, and I'm sure pitches will make an adjustment to that. But you know, he's already had. He's like right up there close. Through his career, high in doubles already all the exit velocity rates are really good for him. Like, he's just hitting the ball, very hard. I still I think I'm past the point where I dream of him being sort of a prototypical leadoff guy getting on base in in stealing sixty bases. He to me is more of maybe like a Adam Jones type of approach where if you hit two eighty five with thirty homers. Nobody really cares if you draw thirty walks or sixty walks, and then obviously the the defense has been remained spectacular. And he's not like a Billy Hamilton Esq on the basis because he sort of picks his spots a lot more. But I think as of now he has the best stolen base percentage in the history of baseball. He's one of those guys, obviously, he's won a part of like the five or six fastest players in baseball. But he's he's always had like a good. You think it chase utley held that record for for a long time?.
"byron buxton" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"All right. So if he were on pace to hit seventy four at the all star break, and he got, you know, July eighth off then that that would not be to you. That wouldn't be weird. I don't think so. No, but close. All right. So August, I for home runs got it. All right. Byron Buxton is on pace. Currently as a hitter always is at this point in the year break all time doubles record. And he is also had a day off to win. Does the doubles record chicken does if he got the fourth the last day of the season off, and he was right on right on the line to hit sixty seven doubles with that be a big deal. I mean, the doubles records doesn't excite me very much. It doesn't have nearly the lesser of the home run record. So I'm going to say like, yeah. Like last week of the season less less second half of September. Although maybe if you're a playoff team, and you have your spot sealed up, and and you just. Wanna give guys arrest before the playoffs start? Then maybe you get a an exemption from this. But yeah, I'll say like soup timber fifteenth is when people might object to that. All right. And then last won the all time record for single season war at baseball. References fourteen point one might trout is again as he was last year. And as I think maybe at this point in the year before on pace to to be better than that. He's on pace for fourteen point three despite missing three games already. Which is crazy. Yeah. Think about that. For a second. He has missed more than ten percent of his team's games. We are more than what we're we're like almost a fifth of the way through the season. And he's still on pace despite that to have the all-time highest war just fun facts all around, but this is a slightly different question. So war is obviously a measure of value of total value. It is not a measure of how many home runs you hit. But of how valuable you are and. If a team decides to give might trout a day off for rest, they're doing that. Because they think that has had a maximize value on their team. They think that him having that rest will keep him fresher over the long haul will lessen his risk of injury will perhaps be good for getting another guy into the lineups. That guy doesn't get rusty. Obviously the decision that a manager makes to sit might trout is a rational one based on maximizing the value of the team's entire roster in the team's entire performance. So while giving Christian yelich a day off can only literally only keep him from from adding to his home runs a day off for my trout could be or theoretically in the manager's opinion is actually increasing his value in an abstract way. So should if might trout is in. Pursuit of the all time war record. Would it actually be hypocritical for me to complain about him getting a day off? Well, I mean, first of I guess you could make the case that Christian yelich would be more likely to hit two homers. Stay I don't think you wouldn't have obviously, obviously, the I think it's it's it would just absolutely shocked me if you could prove giving Christian yelich a day off increases his chances of breaking all time homeowners third than that. Yes. There's a little bit of a benefit and keeping afresh. But I would I just do not think that it it could possibly outlet, right? There have been studies on the effect of day off after a bunch of non days off. And there does seem to be some benefit there. But not so much that you would expect like an extra Homer. So right. I think I don't know. It'd be very curious to see how much people care about the single season record. Because of course, the single season where record changes which. Kind of an awkward fact, I wrote a little change again. Right. I wrote about that earlier this year wars is always changing which makes it hard to use as like a milestone chase kind of metric because of that. And also because like, you can't see it change necessarily like you can't you know, you know, when someone hits the record breaking Homer..

"That's redundant. There's skiing and waterskiing. Am I right about this? Yes, have Tim have the players ever told the manager and coaches, they're having a players only meeting just to get them out of there because they bother them. I think they feel like a more effective meeting is done when they're no manager, and no coaches around 'cause and that's usually on TV that aren't so great. But I always think the best meeting when everyone in uniform, they're players will disagree and say, we can be a little bit more honest. If the manager and coaches aren't in here those Brett Brown looked like a guy selling his backyard Tiki bar on Craigslist. Does doors Burke looked like the divorce court judge who peers it you over her glasses with disdain as your soon to be ex wife describes what you do for a living. Huby Brown looked like the Butler who arrives one minute after the front door. Mysteriously opens on a haunted mansion. Poor. You he looks like that not as much as I game and looks like that. But he looks like that so great no painted area. That you're on with Tim Kirk and Zach go head eight that from Stu falls hear just wondering if Byron Buxton was at the plate newer on second who would get home. I. Wrong. I'm sorry. I got distracted by reduction were what he's on second base. If you're on your on second base, and he's on for and he has to go all the way around to home plate, and you just have to get from second to home plate who wins that race. Okay. I have done the time trials on this. Because they told me at war. No, Dave Flemming that Billy Hamill get beat me from home plate with me starting at second. I did this by myself. A pathetic key two year old man went to a baseball field and ran from second home. And there is no chance that Byron Buxton could beat me, and I can't run anymore. And I'm terrible. But I can run from second home before. Byron Buxton beats me. I think the bigger question is can Byron Buxton beat Mr. freeze and he should race him in the all star game. No, Billy Beata. Billy beat a freeze, and we need to set this up now even up I mean, even up. Because I know Mr. freeze is a sprinter. But I'm telling you Byron Buxton is a sprinter. Also. And I think that would be tremendous race at the also wait a minute..

"And I am big fans of both those dudes big pens. I mean Byron talking about a book, and platinum glove, folks, platinum level defender in Byron Buxton, you put that together. You can appreciate Jared. Good. Not -scuse me that would that would be disrespectful. You can appreciate eat elite level defense in centerfield specifically with a bat that at times has left a little more to be desired. I think the same can at least be said for Byron Buxton. So I got a just something something from him. And maybe the addition of guys like Marlin of guys like scope of guys like Nelly help these kids out. I'm excited for Byron Buxton to make this season preview every year until two thousand twenty five. My guy was also max Kepler. Actually, I'm away. I'm optimistic about a breakout for him. Actually, if you look at a lot of the underlying factors about his exit velocity his ball trajectory, all that's his keta walk rate. All of that suggests he should have had a much better season than he did in terms of keta walk rate growth, he may be fourth largest improvement in all of baseball last year, his exit velocity elite elite stuff like Anthony, Rizzo type bad exit velocity. I think max Kepler is a guy will we're going to look back midway through this year or at the end of next year and be like, whoa. That contract extension. He signed is a real bargain for the twins. I'm picking two guys. Sorry about it. Nelson Cruz not what he does in the field. What he does off of it. So I was kind of poking around at twins camp. This is Dallas had a fly home for for baby number two. And we kind of had some time Nelson Cruz, by the way that interview will be airing at some point was really interesting to talk to him about you know, when you talk to a guy that leads the majors in home runs over X amount of years. You wanna talk to that guy about what he does on the field what he doesn't box, but I was more interested because he's in the latter stage of his career, you know, you get signed to come over to this. Minnesota Twins team. I'm sure they're asking you to do specific things to help out the guys around you. I mean, obviously, there takes a lot of preparation both physically and mentally to come into a season in mash forty homers when you're thirty eight years old, but what can you do for some of these younger guys? And without naming names. This was not from Nelson Cruz. This from one of the other guys it was kicking around. It was like, you know, Nellie comes in here, and immediately it's like one of the guy's missus workout in Nellie was all over them. Like that stuff matters. When you have these players that you believe in and maybe they're not putting in one hundred percent effort, preparing for one hundred sixty two games. You have a guy come in like Nelson Cruz, Ben around the block, and he sees one guy skipped his workout one day, and he's all over that asked and their brand new teammates have have to have guys like that. So I love to hear stuff like that about Nellie already having impact in spring training. But the guy that I'm looking at Jose barrios. This was when I think I think one of the questions that I asked Nelson Cruz was like who's got like some of the nastiest shit that you've seen in this league. And he started listening lifting off some guys. And I was like, yeah. One of the guys is is in that clubhouse right there and. Yeah. I think he's another dude that untapped potential. We've yet to see his best season. And when he puts it all together, you go back and look at the highlight reels when he's on virtually unhittable. But it's a matter of putting it all together. Is this the year that he does it? I don't know. I hope it is. Because when he's going he's one of the most fun pitchers in this league to watch. The White Sox Saux the White Sox question, Mark. I'll do the honors. Okay. Guys asked. Sure. Carlos rodin..

"There is a trend toward more Merwin kansallis in the majors and every team wants one and yet at the same time not m- seemed to want that one the brand name. So I don't know whether that is because people just don't believe in Marin kansallis bat, potentially. Obviously he didn't hit as well last year as he did the before or whether it's just because people think that that skill set is more fungible more replaceable that you don't have to go out and get the guy who already plays a bunch of positions when you can just convert someone you already have in hand and say well played one position last year. But what's? Stop you from playing three or four this year NFL only because the twins had someone who could play every position. And they went out and sign someone else and said just my plea to the twins. You have Byron Buxton he signed Nelson Cruz even have Ronald Torrijos, even though he probably won't make the roster just promote acidy. Oh, and you can be the team of baseball Twitter. Make it happen. You can do it. Right. And the less bit of late breaking news here is that we'd IRS has signed a minor league deal with cardinals could be in line for the backup job to yet. Your Molina, which I think over the past decade, or so has probably been one of the least desirable jobs or most thankless jobs in baseball or from another perspective. Maybe just the easiest job because you don't have to play very much. I think that the saga of poor Tony Cruz who was Molina's backup for years and just never got into games because Molina never kicks off he has since gone elsewhere. But now that we'd IRS maybe. The guy to replace him. And we'd IRS is I think seen as a disappointing player, generally. But kind of a fascinating career. And I think maybe a guy who was kind of a victim of just a statistical mistake almost because a lot of the hype for weaders. And and there was a big scouting component to he was someone scouts like a lot. But a lot of the hype was built up because baseball prospectus projected him as like the second coming of Johnny bench or something. And as I recall a lot of that was based on just a mistake that came from translating his minor league stats in an incorrect ways that made his minor league numbers. Look even more impressive than they word. And so when you translated that into major league stats, it looked like he was ready to win an MVP award as a rookie and that didn't happen, but he's had a pretty decent career if he hadn't come with that kind of prospect luster in so I sort of feel bad for him. That that happened. And that he's had what by some measures is kind of an accomplished career. I mean, he's been in the big leagues for decades. He's been deformed all star games, rightly or wrongly. He's won a couple of Gold Gloves. That is a success in some circles. And yet he is regarded I think as a disappointing player in the last decade air Molina has qualified for the batting title nine out of ten times. It was really hard to do for a catcher. No other actor has done it more than six times in that span. So enjoyer what like thirty starts Matt weaders? Sorry. All right. So we will take a quick break and back with raise preview followed by a patriots don't mind. This law. Three. Has gone. It's too late to your kids. So I'm going so. Too long. All right.

"You know, I'm not as excited about taking the Desmond as top forty guy with the risk. Maybe goes I've been torched by Ian, Desmond in the past. But I think when I looking at Bradley sixty three I I think he's top fifty outfielder as what top fifty to them up from its forty spots in his ADP right now, which is not unattainable. We've got like Byron Buxton. I'm tired of that. I don't wanna do buyer. Buck sitting it. I can't do it again. And he is going forty spots a head of of of Jackie, Bradley, jR, y'all could probably see him to finish my outfield ranks which will have probably in the next week or so he's gonna be around my top fifty like, I all have him above. I don't know. Actually, I don't think you'll be my top fifty. But I think he'll just be outside of it. So he'll he'll probably be top sixty Fermi, which I think is fair. I just can't put them above guys like Austin meadows. Brandon Nimmo or Harrison Badir. Quite yet. Buckton shouldn't be in the top fifty either. So yeah, he is that people can't get over that one. It's the upside it's the upside play. You know, it's not so much that he's in the top forty nine or forty ninth which puts him at one ninety one. Is it? Somebody took him one thirty four. You know, and then people will beat that as drops go on. Yeah. Somebody will now. All right L Burtel Monday. See go ahead. Oh, man, where do I start with him? So I think I talked about I think we've talked about when we did the recording November that I said he was I think we were asked it. I pitched if he was like next Turner. I said why can't he be the next, Tim Anderson? Zoya looked at it. That's a career response. And it got a lot of. But you when when I look at it. It's just the there's a lot of cops. I mean when you look at Anderson his second season, the may just re percent walk rate twenty seven percents strikeout rate mandis he was four percent. Twenty seven percent Monte swum through more pitches. Eighteen percent swing strike rate versus fourteen I think a lot of people some recency buys cubs in the play because people look at hey acopia at Albee's look what they did at their age..

"Learn I guess, you're right. So maybe poll pen. Yeah. Yep. Just get more bullpen to go with Strope and Edwards. Maybe. Zack. So okay. So hap- we're in on. Let's go to the next one Byron Saxton. Pronounce that. Right. To this for me. This is still one of those where I say that the price has gone down enough because he's still going like one ninety six and he's going right ahead of someone. I love Ramon Laureano who actually cuts a similar provide doesn't have quite the blinding speed of Buxton. But he's an elite defender who's going to get his playing time that way and has some pop and speed. So you cut back a little bit of the speed. But added more pop for Lorenzo. I'd rather have him ten on ten times. But what do you think of Byron Buxton? My thoughts are pretty well known that I'm just I gotta see I'm willing to be wrong. If something if if the breakout happens in front of my face, but as it stands now, I'm just not taking this guy. It's hard because I think if you're talking about upside there's very few players going is late as him. That's got his kind of upside the chance he ever gets that upside is minimal and look at the names going around him. He's going on right now is the fiftieth outfielder off the board but forty six Austin meadows. I know lot of I'm not super psyched about Fran Ray as Fran Miller is is gotten a lot of hype people some people in the industry, really like him going forty eighth my boy, Billy Hamilton when forty ninth. Kyle Tucker who we talked about on the last podcast. I did go and fifty fourth. There's Chris Taylor. Go right there. I know again, another guy I'm not psyched about, but I know other people in the industry are Jesse Winker going fifty seven I just think he's not going low enough like this on saying this is still prospect named pedigree holding Byron Buxton's value. Now guy we talked about on the last one of this the last post Manuel Margot to fifty me Margot and fifty point draft spots in hap- going right below Margot too. So. I can't do. And it's over rated. It's ridiculous. I mean, much there's not much price attached. And if he does pop like even if he has a good two weeks, you're going to be able to flip him for so much because is every league there is a Christmas and every day Christmas in every league who will want Byron Buxton and people want him to succeed. So yeah, he's one thirty four. Oh my God. Dude. Don't feel there's going around that are David ender CR taste, even Scottie that that part where we're talking about where mccutchen should be going. And it's like. Come on, man. And I know he's gonna be twenty five. It's like it's not over. But if you're still holding out the original ceiling hopes for Byron Buxton that you had a couple years ago. I would you really ceiling is for Byron bugs. And because I think the for me the ceiling is startling Marta. Like if he actually got the ceiling that he has now. I still think it's good DJ Upton. The best of BJ Upton. Because I think I think with Martin the batting averages too high for that. I think is probably the best of Upton was like. A couple of pop though twenty thirty but he only had two forty-three in to forty six in those seasons. Buxton could have that pop. So may okay. Maybe you give them a little bit more average. And then take away a few of the homers. But I still think it's more in that level. I can't I can't even say that the upside the true like wow, everything's really doing right charts. They're not like great on the average on the triple slash for him. But they're projecting him to get five hundred twenty five plate appearances. Well, I mean, they got like come on. If they're not gonna play. What are you doing? He's not gonna figure it out in triple get less. You're no, I know. And that's that's why he's mad. And apparently, he's still mad about that. And we didn't get called up in September. Some. Doing if you're not getting the five hundred plate appearances. There's no way he's only stealing sixteen or seventeen bags. Well, they have for three hundred. Just a he had twenty nine stolen bases in two thousand seventeen in final Evan. Yeah. And you only had three fourteen on base percentage speeds impeccable..

"Any combination of bregman Altoona a bregman Correa. An immediate, it's really falls over the crowd for not having Mookie Betts, JD nine. I am not like I'm not. They very well could be, but if there is going to be a pair that is better than them, it's going to be SU. Two bregman Korea, certainly viable answer. Yeah, not the right one, but a viable. Dallas, the twinkie the twinkies me yell, snow and Byron Buxton will combined for at least two all star games between the two of them as members of the twins organization if twin. Okay. Yeah. Let me think of. So no could stay at a jail and Buxton can stay on the field. I see this happening because Sonoko could be, could he? He's thirty home run guy. No, maybe even a forty day. I dare even flirt with forty. I mean the thing they have working in their advantages that every team is Representative of the all star game. So they could kind of default into one each right and satisfy the best. And here's my thing. Byron Buxton is a fucking platinum defender. All right, platinum level defender. So if he goes the way of an angel tn Simmons then now we're talking the guy putting together a well rounded game that could very easily see him see multiple all star nods. So if you continues to play elite level defense and is able to. Piece it together offense ably and give out to seventy five to seventy two seventy five season with some some better run production. Yeah, for sure. I think it's I think Byron Buxton in the way the twins of handled him could could do it. You can do an entire podcast on that. Really interested to see what happens to this supposedly next generation of twins players. Jared, the royals royals whitt Mary field squad shut out. That interview coming up momentary. The royals will win at least one postseason series in the next decade series that does not include a wildcard game win. Yes, I think yes, I believe in Dayton Moore, and if there's going to be if there's going to be a rebuild, there's nothing worse than being team that is just stuck somewhere in the middle. Just mediocre and you're not getting those high draft picks another that the that the MLB draft is is a sure thing. But I, I've seen Dayton Moore build a championship team from scratch before if you give him a decade to do it. Again, I believe that he will be able to assume that he's still there in a decade which is, you know. Yeah, it's a fucking large. If you've got a question, do you think Dayton Moore burned all of his Beatles Rick. Good point way to tie in pop culture news, you're, it has no idea what we're talking about. I don't know. Cover of the New York Post today was beat the meals, and it was about Paul McCartney talking about how he and John Lennon used to like masturbate in the same room or something. Very strange. I didn't read the article, so we'll see. But what doesn't seem like very date Morrish thing. What. His mind blowed. They did what? Yeah, I'll that, but Floyd never did that. Yeah, fucking Pink Floyd with narrative. Something like that record in the same room. Oh, Roger. Ruddy wide. So you're going with? Yes. Yes, they will wanna postseason series in the next decade. Yes, Dallas, the Tigers gal Cabrera will receive at least ninety five percent of the vote when he's inducted into the baseball hall of fame. Yeah, I'm gonna say yeah, we're talking about five hundred homers I mean, could he good EJ I know this falls under your albatross category. Could he. Good. He hit six hundred. I know that's like a thirty year average plus probably from here on out, but he's got to be healthy and he's done playing hurt. So if he's done playing hurt and we're gonna get a healthy Mckee back. I don't know. Maybe we see six hundred it. We don't see six hundred see five hundred plus which is all guaranteed my opinion. Yeah, he's a triple crown guy. I think there's going to be some some romance involved there. But I also do think that there might be some individuals who hold onto some of the some of the faults that occurred in his younger years character stuff..

I'm over it until you show me something. All right. Let's see. We have any other last one here at bottom line lex. And I believe this is this is with regards to handicapping. Baseball bedding, Casey, a Baltimore, earn investors, providence timber and Boston womb. That's interesting. So he's thinking that they might be worth playing on those two teams. You know, Baltimore specifically, I don't know what Casey's up to them that might have prompted him to put this, but Baltimore lately has been hitting the ball pretty well. I think they were top ten offense over the last thirty days by woah. In fact, let me check that again. Let me see. They were the last time I checked it which was a few days ago so they might have they might have even if they're top fifteen. I mean this Baltimore talking about they were a doormat here. Oh, not not top ten. How about top one? They're tied with the Rangers speaking of another doormat by record. At least those two teams just total over the last thirty days. They're tied at one binded margin to at three fifty, seven, and then the cardinals and Red Sox are both tied at three forty, six. That's incredible. I mean, that's that's why, let's see who's doing it for the Orioles. I mean, obviously the whole team right. You got well part of this. It's kind of funny because he left, but he left him a nice little parting gift, nine games from Donaldson scope. He gave them to twenty-six WRC plus in this period seven homers in those nine games. But Adam Jones is on fire in our Nunez has a one twenty-five WRC pause, Austin wins to three Tim Beckham and trae Monsignor both at one thirty VR's been great. Cedric Mullins twenty four plate appearances, but a one ninety. Six Joey Rickard Mark Trumble. I mean, the only guys that aren't performing. Above average and it's still an improvement for Chris Davis. He's at ninety nine WRC pause and helping his season Mark of forty. Nine. Oh my God. Oh my off. He didn't have those thirty days of ninety cheese. So yeah, even though it's still below average, it's it's a major improvement for Chris Davis has been. And then the other ones Caleb Joseph, he's at seventy, but otherwise everybody else performing well there. That's that's incredible. The Rangers make make a little bit more sense because I think they've got more town personally. They got rid door. Joey gal, I always Andrews jerks and pro far agent BELTRAN Shinsu and actually chew in bell. Trae aren't even part of the major surge. They're there. They both been about average. In fact, Belcher has been a little bit below. He's got an eighty seven WRC pause, but owed or one Ninety-six. Gallo 165 Andrews pro far Drena's kinder, Falesa all in the one twenty four to one forty, four range. So that's really impressive. But as far as Casey is their offense going or does he like they're pitching? I'm kind of curious on that one. Because they're only sitting eighteenth and Wilbur the last the last month. So I don't know as far as the Red Sox being not profitable. I wonder if he's concerned that they're gonna be playing the AL east and they're going to have big numbers. I think this was based on a sports betting thing too because he said investors in them, maybe just means in their players to, I don't know, but that's interesting. Lacks bottomline, lex. I'll be keeping an eye on especially on the Casey aspect of it because that's, that's definitely the surprising part there are. That's going to wrap it up for the sixth installment of call your shot.
