"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

"Listening to the National League championship series on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. We go to the bottom of the third inning here. Rebel walkie, Dan shoulder. Chris single to this game seven of the NFL CS of the dodgers have a two to one lead or the brewers Christian yelich children to the bottom of the first reveal walkie, Cody Bellinger, two run Homer in the top of the second for the dodgers. You'll be seen is out of the game. Josh Hader, just pitched the top of the third three up with a couple of strikeouts. Walker? Bueller on the mound for the dodgers has Lorenzo Cain. Leads off the bottom half of the inning. And he'll take the first pitch high ball one. He Hernandez stays of the game at second base after pinch hitting for Jack Petersen. Chris Taylor moves from second to left. Cain yelich Braun. For the brewers here. Bottom three and the pitch fastball. That's a little bit low. So he just just I am just slow at it's two balls. No strikes looking out to the dodger Pentagon. Nobody throwing should they be really. But this is game seven. But there are a couple of guys waving their arms around doing some stretching some twists just gotta stay loose that you O'Kane show spot post the back-back really taking all the way and he takes a strike to and one again among those in the dodger bullpen tonight Clayton Kershaw who went seven innings it gained five three days ago, the two one and there's a Suada base hit a right field. PK Hernandez was moving to his right up the middle on the pitch of the ball shot. Right by his left into right field. A single for Kane. Well, I mean there was anticipation there by KiKi Hernandez thinking that as the ball was going through the zone, then he was going to be hit. But Lorenzo Cain. You'll he's got a different kind of swing and sometimes he inside out to the ball Savell bed. Had I don't want say the wreck site spin. But it had some good sites been fade and pretty sharp by be curious to hear from KiKi what he soft the back because it had some strange action leaving the band. So now Christian yelich who electrified the crowd with a line drive home run to right in the first city. Cain with speed. I in the first pitch swing and a ground ball weekly hit too short, but Chato will step on second hand throat. A I in time to get yelich by step and just like that a big double-play turned by the dodgers. That was interesting as the ball kind of bouncing on the mound and hit the mound, and then instead of continuing to take Pop's it just sort of scooted towards Machado which enabled the ball. Got there. A little bit quicker. You don't normally double up Christian yelich? Let's the balls hit pretty hard. That was a hit that hard. But they got a fortunate palm off the dirt around the mound and it got to Machado quicker. You know, interesting Machado who's got long strides reached out with his left leg as far as he could. But didn't get his foot on top of the bag. Kind of just nudge the outside of his foot barely up against the side of the base before making the throw the brewers had a look at it in their video Ruben decide if they wanted to challenge they waited off eventually but a very good play by Machado. Chest did enough to get his foot up against the side of the bag. So that's a big double play. And here's Ryan Braun who takes a called strike. One of those kind of in between plays. If you're a shortstop deandre handed to the second basement or take it yourself. Machado made the right play and a good play and had plenty of arm to get yellow. Ron grounded out back in the first two one dodgers now bottom of the third. The one on the way a swing a foul or two. Mueller still up there as high as ninety nine miles an hour with that fast. Marquette. It's a rookie. You mentioned that last start for him in game. Three seven innings gave up four runs and three of those coming late, but very very dominant. And I know we give six innings three runs. Quality star is here's the O two up in. Activity now with a dodger man, it's a left-hander not Clayton Kershaw. Alex. Wood has started to throw. Down on the basis anti bulish doing well leading to one another. We has given up four hits two-thirds just got a double play goal wanted to on Braun. Lines at works in a breaking ball down at a way to give Kershaw or maybe we should say when I saw consider the game. Obviously extremely unlikely you'd have to get hot fast coming to the middle of an inning in a situation. Alex wood is the guy who can do that. He is. We're just both a starter. And a reliever Kershaw would be much more likely to get a clean it. Ju balls two strikes on wrong. Pitch all the way in a fastball. Swung on and missed another one at ninety nine and that'll be that for the brewers though runs it. Nobody left were at the end of three Hibbard game seven with the dodgers leading to two one.

"Series. No. A lot of people wanna see that the networks the networks fish want to see that. I however do not I want to see the Milwaukee Brewers in the World Series parody here for the first time since Harvey wall bangers was eighty two. Yeah. I believe so the Harvey webbing seem was the eighty two team. And yeah, I would love to sing. I would love to see Milwaukee. More. So because I just I'm a fan of the cats that are on their team, obviously. Right. We hit the dodgers. But they have such a good squad, of course Kershaw in the World Series. You're not going to lose with that. I mean, he might. But you're not as a fan. The brewers though. Just so much intriguing talent Cain yelich Braun who I mean? Unbelievable story with Ryan Braun, really. And you know, that will get highlighted classic are frady's boy Erik Kratz who was on with me and Cavaco last week. So there's a lot of guys I think that are you can root for your giants fan looking at those brewers squad. But to be honest with you face. I'm not mad at the Red Sox either. I love Mookie Betts I love watching the police are catching right field. Homerun the other one. God the one that here's the fan and interfere. Here's the thing. And Cavs said this the other night, and I agree with them. Every single year you go into the baseball season might trust the best player, but this year. Specifically, Mookie Betts. I would say Mookie Betts was the best player in all of baseball. And it was just it was phenomenal to watch him and the Red Sox get a their their record as far as winds go. But listen, I don't think anyone can interfere. With Mookie Betts getting the MVP this year for the I think, it's outstanding. I think it's bar. None. He's the AL MVP. Yeah. No doubt about it. Right. Right. Was it three forty six. Batting average six four slugging who know movies world, Mookie Betts is out of this world. And we're in an era of baseball. That's just so fantastic. To watch some people don't think so though with all the strike outs. And I mean, obviously, there's a lot of home runs. But a lot of strikeouts as well. People. Don't like that in the bullpen and right? The other day with Wade Miley being pulled after five pitches. Some people don't like that. But you know, what I was asking you this question, and I want to get you a rapid fire here in a couple of seconds by when is the point that we as fans have to catch up with the game. I know we want to sit in bitch about the rules. And especially when it comes to the NFL this year. Oh, my God pass roughing the passer all the pass rush is going to be the you can't hit the quarterback. And now you're starting to see defensive linemen and defensive players when they're going after the quarterback over the ball because you get a strip sack fumble turnover. All with one play rather than wrapping around laying on top of a quarterback and getting a flag that is going to cost her team. So we're seeing an evolution. And not only football. We're seeing and baseball. Of course, the strike outs. We mentioned that with all the analytics, and we're seeing in the NBA as well with the game going much small from my question is with the in the leagues are going to change. The sport is going to change at what point do we in this position catch up with the games to stop complaining because. 'cause we're not going to change it. We could sit here and bitch and piss and moan on Sundays at all. I don't like the rules of the NFL is driving. It's not the NFL growth with. No, it's not it's not the NFL to the nineties. It absolutely is Reggie wise. Not laying on quarterbacks. There's no there's no it's not like that. At all the NBA the nineties is not like that anymore. It's different. It's all different. But it's not bad. It's still a wonderful product, especially the NBA, which I love dearly, the NBA my favorite over football baseball based on their progression. How they market their players. That's key for me. I have an opportunity now as a fan to really get attached to a certain player and more. So than baseball and football me, personally, I root obviously, the warriors some from San Leandro, I grew up watching it. But I found myself rooting for more players in the NBA than any other sport. I love Westbrook. I love onto the combo. I love Joel Embiid and the Sixers there's so many personal guys. And it's because the way they market those guys they let them just be what does it in this year in the NBA? They're letting them wear letting the boys wear whatever coach shoes they want right. And I wonder how that is going to work out as well. Because don't you think the shoe money's gonna start rolling in? If you see this or that cat was some fresh kicks. I gotta have that. I got a cop those right now. What's the new shoes? Westbrook swearing. Yes. I want those the shoe money's already in. But it'll be it'll be rolling in that advantage faster pace. But again, it's just one example of how fast the NBA is growing and expanding. And it's a brilliant beautiful thing. I love the NBA so much. I really do. No. I absolutely agree. I wish I was baseball. The NFL would do the same thing and market their players the way, the NBA does I don't know how you would do it. I don't have an answer for that aren't even have a basic outline on how you would do that. But still it's I think that's what's catapulting that league in front of everybody else. We'll get to your rapid fire at the end the hour. Sorry, I was just yapping. I mean, all good, bro. Although I do dig this music bed prime, right? Real funky data coming up next from Bleacher report is also the editor of NBA math. That's a real thing. But way on Twitter Denver valley's going to hop on. We're not only going to talk about the warriors. But I just want to get his thoughts on what's going on in the league. Because we talk about the gap between the words and the west and the rest of the Western Conference, and how large that is obviously going to Iraq and with the jazz right now jazz up by four thirty six thirty to ten and a half to go in the second. But I want to talk to him about the rest of the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference as well. Because now the LeBron's with LA how things shake up over there. We're gonna talk about Toronto in the finals Brad Stevens, and the Celtics are they building a dynasty and Boston. We'll talk to Dan for belly coming up next came here tonight right here on the.
