"Kyle schwarber being very diplomatic, Taylor, about what happened in the game last night when he met with the reporters. There was a lot of off the record conversation about Jesus. Is anything going to happen when a home plate umpire has a game that was that rough and the metrics showed that he missed a lot of calls last night. But here's the frustrating part is that there doesn't seem to be any ramifications when you get a game like that from an umpire. Yeah, it's pretty amazing that that was sort of the universal consensus is like, well this sucks and it's probably gonna happen again and nothing will come of this because that's the way Major League Baseball operates. And when you look at the NFL or the NBA, he would be taken off he'd be suspended or he would be demoted in sort of their referee rankings. There are repercussions for blowing calls in other leagues and it's kind of amazing that for baseball they have not adopted that system yet. No, for years, it's funny when you hear people complain about Joe west and things that happen on the field. My response was, well, no one ever does anything about it. And that's what's going to happen here in this case. No question about it. All right, twins, White Sox, on Sunday, went to extra innings. The White Sox had a lead, Byron buxton at the plate. Three balls one strike in the tenth and the pitch of swinging a drive. The field of deep. Twins win. Twins win. The Minnesota Twins. Who else? Byron buxton game winner and the twins sweep.

"That is the downside of watching a young, hard throwing pitcher who's doing things that I'd love to just sit back and watch the show and say, yeah, wow, look at this player pumping in those fastballs, how high can the radar gun readings go, but there's always just some element in the back of my mind where it's like, oh no. I don't want to look at what happens next. I'm watching through my fingers. 'cause I don't want to see. And so when one of these players gets pulled, whether it's Kershaw, who is throwing 90 or less or sasaki or greed and who's throwing a hundred or more. I mean, when they are removed early from the game, it's like I'm not mad. I'm just disappointed because I do understand why this is happening. But it would be nice if we could say that pulling them preemptively or earlier than they would have been pulled in the past kept them safe. Now the best we can say is it doesn't endanger them further, right? You're just constantly having this balance between, well, throwing more pitches is going to hurt them, but also throwing fewer pitches really, really hard is going to hurt them. And so hopefully we can offset the damage of the latter with the former by just having an earlier hook, but you just never know. Anyway, I don't want to be the wet blanket with every young heart throwing pitcher. It's just the track record, health wise, not the most encouraging. Yeah, and sometimes it's fine, right? Yeah. Sometimes it's fine, but because we don't know, when it will stop being fine, you always do have that bit of nervousness. It's sort of makes things thrilling, but you're sitting there being like, I'd like to enjoy watching you play baseball for months and years. And you know, it's not as if all guys who throw hard sort of raise a similar level of alarm, right? Like if you have a guy who has very clean and repeatable mechanics like you might look at it and feel differently about it than you would with a guy who has a lot of violence in his delivery and what have you, but thinking that there's like a clear and obvious bright line with those things is probably a fool's errand. So it does always operate in the back of your mind as like, is this the one where he feels the pop? Right, and green in his two starts, I mean, he struck out 13 and ten to the third innings. He's walked only two. That's very promising, but he's allowed three homers, so he hasn't been untouchable or unheard of. When it gets to the point where you are, that's where degrom was, or where sasaki seems to be right now. That's kind of where the cost benefit calculus comes up in my mind where it's like, well, if you're literally perfect, like if no one could hit you, if you're challenging bob Gibson's record or you have 52 consecutive batteries without anyone hitting you, then can you dial it down a little bit and save yourself and still be really effective and I know that's a hard thing. I mean, it's easy for me to say and it's harder for someone to do it mechanically and also to make that mindset adjustment where it's like, yeah, I can throw a 101, but instead I will throw 98, you know, you're trying to do the best you can at all times and you're trying to make the most money you can so I get it. I get why you're all out and for all I know they are taking a little off and they could throw a little harder than they are even. But that's the point where it becomes a question to me where it's like if you've reached this level of untouchability, then it's like, well long term does it maybe behoove you to be slightly less untouchable, but also not go under the knife at some point and who knows they could get hurt even if they did that. So it's hardly a foolproof plan. Yeah, you know, to enjoy a picture is simply to be cognizant of the fact that you are enjoying a thing that no one should do. No one should do it. Just like no one should catch. The fact that we play baseball at all is pretty wild. Well, protect hunter green protect sasaki. I want to see them keep pitching. I want to see the perfection streak continue. And speaking of injuries, we had a couple of close calls with Byron buxton and Mike Trout. I lumped together in my mind because they're both center fielders and because they have been over some period of several seasons. Now the most productive players in the game on a rate basis when they are on the field. And also I want them together because it's far too often they have not been on the field even more so in buxton's case. And so it looked bad. Buxton heard his knee and he slid into second and he was like pounding the ground and he knew immediately that something was wrong and he was escorted off the field that was like, oh no, here we go again and he was off to a pretty good start. Fortunately, no structural damage in the MRI sure sounds like he will be back any day now, trout was hit by a pitch. Fortunately, I guess it was a breaking ball. There was no damage detected there long term either. And he is day to day and should be back soon as well. So it looks like crisis averted with both of these guys, but man, we came close again just a couple of weeks into the season. High on the list of players that we all just want to stay healthy. We just want to see what they can do. Don't put this fear into us, you know? It's one thing for my chat to have intestinal distress. I mean, that's not great either. But you hope that doesn't keep it out for a full season, although who knows? Like he strained a cat and it kept him out for months and months so I don't want to take anything for granted at this point. But I am relieved that they both seem to be okay, but it was scary there for a minute and it's never not scary with those two at this point. Well it feels like the sort of scary it feels like is a little bit different because you know with buxton we just we have this sense this obvious and well earned sense that like we just want to see the one clean year, right? We want to see the one year where he is able to stay healthy having put all of this stuff together. And of course the unspoken thing with that is that we're never satisfied with just one year. We walk all of the years, but we got to start with one before we can get greedy, right? You need to have the first thing before you can ask for more. So, you know, that's the sort of character that that longing and trepidation takes when he seems dinged up and then with trout, I think, you know, it's a really hard, it's really hard to sit there and say, I'm not satisfied with the character of Mike Trout's career, the path that it has taken right, like if he retired today, he'd just be a Hall of Famer. He just be a Hall of Fame player. But I think that wanting the declined to be smoother and sort of on his own terms and have the opportunity to sort of adjust and adapt and see what the best baseball player any of us have watched play baseball can do if he is fully healthy and is and is confronting sort of the natural aging process. Like I want to see what is, I don't know, what is 36 year old Mike Trout look like 'cause it might just not be very good but maybe he figures something out and he adjusts and he unlocks something and the version of it we get is obviously not going to be a center Fielder anymore but he throughout the course of his career has been so keen to identify a weakness and adjust to it and try to overcome it and sort of remove from the ledger anything that might hold him back from posting 9 and ten more seasons and so like age comes for all of us. Like we are all slowly moving toward death or whatever, but if anyone's going to keep that dragon at bay for a while, it's probably going to be Mike Trout. So I want him to stay healthy to see would you be surprised if like 37 year old Mike Trout is like in a corner or mostly DHA but still posting a one 50 WRC plus..

"On the player side too, but it's really a pot of gold that is enticing for ownership. So yeah, I do wonder if they keep expanding the playoff field whether there will be just a greater recognition that the playoffs are a separate entity from the New York season. If you're letting in half the teams or just about, then maybe the belief now that the postseason actually anoints the best team in baseball or means anything really other than you had the best hottest month and that it's not sort of a discrete stand-alone tournament. I mean, I think there's a lot of understanding of that already, but if you were to let tons of teams in and lower caliber teams get their entry into the tournament and inevitably will win at some point, then maybe that will paradoxically make people appreciate the regular season more or at least recognize that winning the regular season means something and those records count even if you don't actually end up winning in October. So maybe. And I don't mind that, really, like if you just say, hey, we have two separate seasons in a way, you know? The ricker season is its own thing, and that tells you more about the actual talent of the teams, but the playoffs are just fun. And everyone likes March Madness, and this is baseball, March Madness, and it doesn't necessarily overturn the results of the regular season, but it's just a separate thing that you get a ticket to if you do well for 6 months. I think there is so much inertia around October being one like baseball capital B baseball memories get made that it's going to be hard to ever convince people of that even with a sort of shift in the structure, but yeah, I think that in our corner of the Internet, I think there is an increasing understanding and recognition that the randomness at play there doesn't, it tells you something about what happened in those games, but it isn't going to tell you more about the quality of the teams involved than the 162 games that preceded it. Migrate fear Ben is this. They expand the playoff field. And then the Seattle Mariners make the playoffs and they make it in one of these, you know, these new spots, these spots that wouldn't have existed. And then we have to talk about it for the rest of our lives. So that's what I worry about. You know, like people should remember, I went to grad school and worked in nonprofits, so I acknowledge the importance of discourse, but my exhaustion with it comes honestly. Well, people were sitting twins, GM Levine, the other day at the Byron buxton press conference when he said we believe this is a championship caliber team, which when you look at the twins pitching staff, you sort of skeptical of that, but I championship caliber team in a world with 14 team playoffs. I mean, you don't have to have as good a team to get in there and championship caliber team could be any team that qualifies for the playoffs because if you do that, you can win a championship. So the bar is low. Yeah. You did not ask me for my qualifications, so I did not feel required to offer it. All right, so we are going to save our next stove league recap for next week, so I hope everyone is streaming and catching up and we will do episodes 9 through 12 next time. Just going to do maybe a couple emails here. We also have a meter major leaguer and a stat blast to end on. But here's a question from Nathaniel, who says, in light of Wanda Franco's contract, let's pretend the rays, instead of signing him, accidentally cut wonder, and he is a free agent at age 20. Oops, that would be a big mistake. There are multiple wonders, so that's true. They're not all on the raise though. Yes. My question is, what would his value be if he were magically a free agent today? I assume it's going to be a lot more than he actually signed for, and at first I thought about how lopsided it is toward the team, but I suppose they did invest a lot in his development, but does that justify the difference? And I would say that you could just about double what he got and maybe you could put a more precise number on it. I don't know. I'm sure we could figure it out. We could run the zips and get the projections. But he got 11 years one 82 guaranteed. And I'd say you could just about double the part and that is about what he would get if you were on the open market. Because a lot of those years in the 11 or at least the last what 5 or whatever would be free agent years. So he is kind of getting paid for some free agent level earnings, of course, with the caveat that those years or several years away. And so there's some uncertainty and risk built in there. But he stood to make very, very little for the next three years and not a ton for the next 6 years or so. And we're saying, no, he just gets to get his full value on the open market immediately. And because of who he is and how great he was as soon as he hit the ground essentially in the majors, people would pay him as if he were a present superstar. Basically, I think he might not be at his peak, but he is already a really great player. So I would say that he is immediately in the 30 ish million range, if not more than that right now. And of course, if he is able to go to any team as opposed to just negotiating with the rays, then you have the winners curse that enters into things and the high bidder gets to get him and some teams will like him more than other teams..

"I wanna go with fat Chris because he'd beat everyone in a race Guinea, pigs scoot as for what was the first question. I don't you're on with Tim Kirch. Go ahead. Chris. When players call a players only meeting. Do they call it a players only meeting or just call it a meeting? I think it's a players only meeting differentiate from a meeting called by the manager. They have a team meeting is almost always run by the managers players only just clarifies it. But I get the redundancy thing bothers me to me it's a t and it's t- if you order tea it's implied implied that it's hot. So you either order t- or ice T. You don't go snow skiing. 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 because and that's usually teams that aren't so great. But I always think the best meeting went everyone in uniform their players will disagree and say, we can be a little bit more honest.

"An impressive peak of his career more than an impressive peak. But he's not a hall of Famer yet, and he shouldn't be a hall of Famer yet dizzy dean has the fewest wins of any starting pitcher ever to go into the hall of fame. And, you know, kluber got a long way to get to even dizzy dean. This is what you have to do is a starting pitcher is you have to go out there. And if you're two thousand inning short, I'm not so sure about that. Plus, you know, the Tim Linda comes of. The world would then say we'll look at my five year peak. I should be hall of Famer also, but it's it's career value. Not just peak value. There are a lot of guys who belong in based on peak, but career is even more important to me, how long do you do it? How good are you for long periods of time people people penalized for longevity. I happen to give extra credit points for being good enough to be in a rotation for fifteen years some guys for twenty years that stuff matters. So according kluber is not a hall of Famer yet, but the on the path have -solutely, but he needs he needs several or really good years to get there. Now you and I are wrong about so many things, but I gotta give you credit. You're right about Byron Buxton when he told us in spring training that he seems set up for a good year. This was the play that he made yesterday that got everybody in baseball talking to reach a fielder's choice. First time of a drive to center Buxton going back still going back. He's at the long way.

I told you I'm not apologizing for be wrong about things, but I'm never gonna say. Hey was right about that. Because I might be wrong. Anyway, all I'm telling you is when he took his shirt off. It was ridiculous. How ripped he was any completely different body type than the one that I saw last year, but more important than that BUSTER. He was angry this spring. I had such fun loving conversation with him the previous spring about football. And how hard baseball was. And there was none of that this spring. It was like I'm not talking about anything funny because I'm he didn't say it. But he was angry about the way he'd been treated. He was angry by the twins not calling up in September. And I just sense. This guy is angry enough to go show, everyone I'm going back to the way that I used to play baseball. And I'm going to go back to my old swing and that's what I've.

"And I was on the road wires show this morning saying, you know, what I like that move a lot. And I don't think y'all either of y'all have your season like hinged upon it. I think a lot of people will say that. That's kinda easy thing to say. Well, your season depends on severing. No, it doesn't it could be a great windfall for you to get an ace for five months. But if he's just kinda solid for the five months or maybe even your time. And it's four months. I don't think that's a problem because you have to Graham Snell and Chapman out front as your three pitchers. Let's be honest. Even if he misses the entire season, it's Leah. It's not going to be the reason I lose. This league because with Hurrell and snow into Graham at the top. I have a ton of starting pitching already. What Luis Severino is again on the overall at this point because got the top two if he comes in. He's five months of Luis Severino. Then I'm giving myself a potential chance to win the overall prize, which is what you wanna do in a league like this. I think I can survive without him in my league it just in general. I think I've got a legitimate shot to win my league. No prob. You know, obviously, there's other really great players in this league and some other really great teams. But I think I put together a team that should compete for the league this bet. And then the one of the bets later is a bet on if these guys come back, then I've got three guys who would have been top ten starting pitchers going into the draft. Add Severino been healthy on my roster. Your next Quinn tent quintet has a lot of overall work to to that that could really strike big. When you go Byron Buxton Garrett Hamson, Austin meadows, Danny Janssen, Jimmy Nelson. That's that's a nice little five pack there. I don't think the eleventh round for Buxton's to agree. Just even I'm not a huge Buxton guy looking at how agonized agonized over Byron Buxton who'd you consider with him. Well, I got to the end of the tenth around. We took the break. I looked at my team. And I go the only guys who are going to steal anything for me on this team or Rubio door and Tommy fan. Yeah. Standard ideal. Nothing cruises stealing anything does not stealing anything. So I looked around in a lot of the big stolen base guys had gone. And so I was debating between Buxton Garrett ham. In and then Billy Hamilton gross in. I just I really debated. I talked to you talked to a number of other guys, I think like four my friends fancy benefit staff members watching in everybody recommended me, go a different direction, and I ended up going with your recommendation, which was boxed in the right way. I think I did especially because Hamson ends up falling to me in the next round. Exactly. That makes it so much that you were considering him in that eleven town and you got him in the twelfth. Anyway, you know, Buxton if he'd just just do what you did in seventeen sixteen homers twenty nine steals. Fifty three fourteen four thirteen line on a great line. But if you can just get those numbers that can be massive now Ryan McMahon's having a great spring as is Garrett Hamson, they're both. They're both fighting it out and Hamson had a little little Nick there. But I think he's bass. He news ID there was a report in during that draft that he was playing that day in left field. So that's one of the reasons I was more comfortable taking him as opposed to taking Hamilton Hamilton. I know you like pretty much pencil in like, forty stolen bases. I didn't wanna ruin the average base that I had gotten in dollars zero. Why I mean that doesn't bother me because I mean, I had you know, Cruz and of auto and instant and already for me was a matter of I didn't wanna spoil already had a guy in door who could it to fifty adore could hit two twenty for sure. And while I'm hoping to spike the two fifty. It's unlike a lot of in Buxton as well like, you know, you just don't you don't wanna crater your average in a league like this because you can't punt..

"Potentially help you win vitucci leagues. There's going to be years where he is completed useful problem is it to be really hard to predict those years and every time he goes on these hot one of these hot streaks with their be at the end of the season spring training. Everybody's going to overpay for the next year. We're seeing the start of that right now. And the overpay Billy Hamilton or Byron Buxton got Billy. Would be anywhere near my team. Even if he was one hundred six cheaper, and I don't even like Buxton. I'm brother Bill. Billy Hamilton is going above him. That's disgusting. Although I should go. I have all my good care. Terrible. Terrible. True. Changed in the majors. Last year is not true that billions arguments that that people are making right now that will lease Buxton's elite defense will keep them on the field. It didn't last year last year like this with you just and the twit want to win the royals don't care about winning. It all Billy Hamilton is going to play every day for the royals to win at no play. Byron Buxton, though, not Jake Kate you've but. Because he was so offense they had to send him down to the minors. But there's no question if he's garbage if the guy who won fifty again, it's a win for everybody says bucks, and it's going to suck. I don't think that's in question here bombs out. It doesn't matter what good defense. He's gonna play. You're not gonna stay on the field. That's not the question. What's? Of that happening, again, not not very high at all. And I agree. I completely agree. You're also say there's no argument. Also, if bucks is going up at like. Pollock and Michael Brantley. The. Tell you let me tell you. I just did a quick run of online championship drafts since March first, and is that's where he is going in. Let me get let me get right now. It's one thirty pick one thirty. And so that's that's still two rounds lower than Pollick at one four. But he's creeping and his men pick is Billy Amilton. And he is he is. And I'm not here to make the case that you know, we've gotta take out all that type of stuff. But but my problem before was who the guys that are that they're going below him that you're putting your head through a wall because you missed out on obvious one hundred Renfro Cal, Schwartzberg sucks. No, take the I think the reasoning behind taking Buxton is better than the reasoning behind taking Billy Hamilton. Because if you're taking Billy Hamilton, you're expecting a certain amount of steals from him. And I'm not sure you're going to get them with him hitting night in one of the worst lineups in baseball. When you take Buxton you're hoping for setup for some upside, you probably won't get that either. But at least you can plan to replace him with someone else later, there's no replacing Billy Hamilton. You're not gonna get forty steals at the bottom of the draft because if someone can steal forty bases. They are drafted very very high. So I don't want either of these losers on my team, but I would. Buxton? Yeah. I would too. I I totally agree with with all of that. They're now I wanna see where bucks. 'cause here's the thing. He doesn't have to be out the rest of spring. But if he continues to do, well, then that price is going to go higher, and he's gonna be the Delano to shield. Creeps into the one hundred top one hundred and then all of a sudden not I'm not in. I'm not really an on them right now. But between that and Billy Hamilton. I am all right. Let's move onto the next one here. This is another power speed combo..

"He was in the Milwaukee system. They had Colorado Springs at the time. And I swear just trashed his confidence and got absolutely obliterated their found some things. I know you had that like eight innings of perfect game last year. That's not what I'm basing this off. This is going back to him as a prospect. But with Casey he should get plenty of time. That's a pretty solid little pick their Dylan sees could be nice four and a half month type guy for for e-e-e-e-no four four and a half month type of guy, but obviously has to wait on that kind of five at that time guy your boyfriend Baretto and Richie Martin a rule five guy for Baltimore and Mike, Michael Herman CO point time. We'll be tough in LA with with the outfield, but he plays be the show. So he's automatic could have been a fly on the wall in the room. When e-e-e-e-no brought his name. His pick just to hear him stumble through that we both said her Maceo like we grew up with that. We we spend a lot of time in Texas allies on how to pronounce that name Hermoso. About he probably has a German pronunciation, that's why he says Christian yelich. He's wears it's it's the some German Allen related question of who do you like better cheesy or potato and I'm only asking because I'm looking at trade offer. So that are the same price prevents five dollars more. Cassie because of the five dollars to get a tiebreaker. But with the Homer proviso like I have to say Panetta. I don't think you can really go wrong. Get don't get me wrong on that. I picked against Pavetti, but I am fan, but at the five dollar difference. That's what's leaning me. This was the one where I made the trade for Harper. So I have this even more expensive Nado sitting there and trying to get something for him as somebody offered me CRT, which is great for no b p league steals, and he's and he's in a very good price. And then I tried to squeeze a little more juice out of it and one in the Casey, and he's asking for pathetic matern, and I'm still probably just gonna take it. No, no, Casey. And I like the cutter too. I can't I cannot keep our Aaron auto. That's ninety five dollars. You're not getting the extra juice. If you give the pitcher back give a lesser pitcher. I I've already tried. All right. This is nothing. Maybe tastes need to really nice in an OB. But all right back back to the labor Ellen somebody that you abide that you liked and one that you weren't so keen on. Yeah. I when we're looking at outfield the and sort of clowning on the Byron Buxton pick right below that. He took Domingo's Santana for fifteen which in a world where it looks like Randall Grischuk is going for thirteen seems to me like a pretty good value. I like Santana, and I'm worried that his prices going to start to skyrocket as draft season heads and people realize that he was a top one hundred pig clashed year. And now it has full-scale playing time in Seattle. And so I want I want them drafts to happen now to get in and get some Santana shares before it's too late. Because we talked about. And he went he went a little bit earlier in my TJ FBI than I would've liked it. Probably for the same reason. They like sport, you know, sports got him on the radar now, better better, go ahead and swoop. So that's a good call out. What about one that you weren't? So so hot on. Well, and this is also may be biased because of my fundamentalist hatred of the Yankees. But I don't love Luke wait for twelve dollars. I just don't small sample myself. I'm nervous on him as well. Twelve dollars is not end of the world. You can't kill them. But when I see yonder Lonzo go for seven exact just not sure there's a five dollar difference per absentee Hannah for sixteen. I would move or seventeen. Yeah..

"Well, you and I have better plate discipline. The problem here is going to ninth as he should the twin twins. I have a good deep lineup. Now. They've really done some nice things. Yep. Assuming Keppler insa no hit and cruised as healthy. I mean, we don't wanna get too much into this. My point is why not take a chance on Buxton in the middle rounds. You haven't been around nineteen wanna to take a chance on a guy with huge upside who just had a. A bad year. Maybe just can't stay healthy ever. But if he were to play one hundred and thirty games and bat to fifty with fifteen homers and thirty steals. That's a bargain. Oh, yeah. He'd be. I mean, it'd be a huge bargain, and I already did that did that two years ago. He did. Yeah. And it's an absolutely fair point. And I want to embrace that upside I'm a very big Byron Buxton fan. You know, I've got a couple of shares of them. I was just having a huge debate. My keeper league about him more. I have them at a minimum salary, and I'm thrilled with that. And then I had somebody question. Why would I keep him because of all the the issues I'm trying not to ignore that are negatives with Byron Buxton? I mean, he's missed a lot of time. He's at injuries and the larger part of the career has been negative. It's a shame is shame lightning round. Josh harrison. The Tigers new care someone you would consider in the late rounds or no he'll play a lot. That helps the big impact for me was just Nikko gooderham being bounced back to you Tilleke that's going to also by the way have an impact at the age on guys like John Hicks catcher Elhage. Double cetera. The recovery for Cory Seager. Buster Posey positives. Negatives, anything you've seen that? I rank Seger four worse than you and not only because of the injury problems. But also, I I don't think a middle. Infielder hitting twenty three home runs and knocking in seventy is that big a deal anymore might have is a bigger deal two years ago when he did it, but your thoughts on Seagrams Posey Segers was more of a positive development poses was a little more negative just because this is pushing back the his spring debut.

"A little more rather than just trying to blow up by batters. So if he can, you know, get a little better pinpoint control with that fastball. I think that's what gets them to that that site young level. It does feel like he's going through an ever Lucien of thought. I don't have the article in front of me. But I read a piece where he talked about how in recent years. He's thrown a lot of two seam. Fastballs probably to get the movement that you refer to but he feels like this year he wants to establish his four seam or a lot more. We've seen a lot of pitchers in in the last couple of years begin to pitch in the upper half of the strike zone. Maybe Sean Doolittle reliever from the nationals is the best example that maybe that's the weapon that Syndergaard feels like that he hasn't fully. We used and we saw a couple of examples that yesterday where he's beating some of the asteroid hitter's up in the upper part of the strike zone. So he'll be fun to watch this year. No question about it. And I'm hoping that Byron Buxton will be fun to watch. He certainly add himself a day on Monday. Give a listen. You definitely wonder what his emotion levels. Here's a pitch to Buxton who trails one. Hi, this is hit pretty well out by the wall, and it's gone for to run over. Carrying that wind is blowing that way, and he got one high and heath to laugh wiring FOX in his having a day with five RBI. Fiber RBI three hits he's five for five. So foreign spring training. You look, I think you would I would agree spring training results or basically meaningless but Buxton coming off is incredibly frustrating two thousand eighteen season went into the winter with a plan put on some weight gain some strength, and it feels like when you look at his history that he is a momentum type guy in other words when he starts to slumpy might get into his own head. And so while the numbers himselves don't mean anything the fact that he's off to a good start and gets early positive reinforcement from his work. I think that can only be a good thing.

Jonathan scope would be a better to hitter he'd be a more reasonable fit there or have all. But like he wouldn't be there yet, it's a resort area. Why isn't resort you hitting for you got him into in Nelson Kruglov, nobody walks. I forgot this is the team were nobody walks. The I'd go Polanco resort yo cruise krone Kepler Sonoko scope Castro. Let the pitcher bat instead of letting Byron Buxton bat. That's what I do. Actually. No, no. You know, what forget the pitcher fan of the day and everything we've just like a fan. Not games to we'll pick some. Out of the road the road stands there. Like, I like the way you think this is a team. Oh my God. Yeah. That's right before they signed Nelson Cruz. They did not have a single regular projected to hit a or to have a on base percentage of three forty or higher. That's mainly because to knows batting average had just because that because he walks he walks, so okay. Kepler the to here's the thing. Koran krone isn't going to be any lower than five I would imagine..

"byron buxton" Discussed on Starting9

"Over three thousand plate appearances. So like that fine wine. We referenced earlier he he continues to get better. He's actually sustaining this type of performance over this long-haul. Now sure this might be where we start to see some of that deterioration. But for the Minnesota Twins on short term here. I love it lasts five years. Like you said the two hundred three home runs that averages to a forty one homers hundred four rabies twenty five doubles over the last five seasons. And the biggest thing is the biggest thing. Yeah. Minnesota last year about this. Fifteen Jackson a six eighty two PS out of the D H slot. That was good for twenty nine in all of baseball, besting only the Detroit types designated, no hitter. Oh. So let's go let's go. Do you guys think the twins are capable of making any legitimate noise, either in the central or the wild card? Yeah. I it's it's not I'd like to see them at a starter. I feel like that. They could definitely use the facelift there, but the lineup. Yeah. I mean, there's gonna be a lot of talk about that landing in the bullpen. Yeah. You get a bounce back outing or abouts back your ODA Rizzi. Berrios continues to make strides who else they got. I mean, listen, listen, let's me more of Gibson. The that's this is not inspiring. I think the dry this Nelson Cruz, but as a quick aside about the twins. I think we all know that their ultimate trajectory really comes down to what they get out of Byron Buxton into a lesser extent. Me snow because both of those guys basically had lost twenty eighteen seasons. And they both have very distinct flaws issues, whatever that they still need to work out. But Buxton in particular has shown such a base level. Like if you're defenses that good you just need to hit a certain amount, and you can be like a. Yeah. About what we had this conversation with Jackie Bradley, jR, doing crops a oh hit two fifty Roman centerfield as long as you fucking one. Yeah. And so like Buxton's the same same dude might the thing. And I have no insight on this question. Because obviously, I've never been in a clubhouse in nor do I even know how this would work. But the thing I'm most interested to see if either, incidentally, or intentionally Nelson Cruz has any sort of impact on snow. Yes. I feel like that's definitely something that could happen especially because when I was reading about always there was this one dickhead that wanted to bring up the PD stuff when Nelson Cruz because he signed with the twins because when he left Seattle, obviously, they loved him in Seattle. He produced there. He was a great personality there. So all the beat guys and the fans had nothing, but great things to say about Nelson Cruz, then there is one dickhead they wanted to go. Yeah. Everyone's saying all these great things. Well, what about the PD suspension? Like, okay. But he's still. A guy that out works everyone like he's going in there, and he's busting his ass. And I think that that that rubs off on on the younger players everyone. So I'll tell you to the yard at book and twelve thirty corrobos, and you wanna know who I am on the way up to the office..
