"Name even mentioned brain. Podcasts like that's part of the reason why we do the major leaguers second says. Yeah like they're guys who just don't get mentioned but those are often not prominent players. Who maybe even aren't having a good year and they're just very but like i don't know if you set a cutoff of like three war or two wars something like an average year. Maybe like four words. Maybe like a all-star type season like what percentage of players do we cover at some point and in the past that the end of the year. We've done an episode or two where we just kind of go team by team and talk about something that we missed with that season and readers will submit story lines or season's just weird wacky things that happened that we didn't touch on in the podcast and obviously a lot of our listeners. Don't listen to every single episode of effectively wild for shame but they may not know if we have mentioned a certain player at some point. But that was the idea. Basically 'cause you know just like as. I'm looking at leaderboards occasionally. I will see someone who i just did. Not know was having a good year or didn't know us have that good a year and i figured we could single some of those guys out see. I felt confident that i understood the exercise. And then one of the guys. I put on my list was literally salvador perez for like ten minutes. So we'll see if we hadn't really before that. So i can still pick 'em can't i can't tie sure that would be a good example because i mean he's probably come up at some point i talked about the homerun derby a little bit. But we hadn't dwelt on him downlink dwellers to up on all right. I don't know do you wanna go. I should i just take salvador. Yes i mean. I guess we don't have much more to say about. I don't wanna you go. I i i want to calibrate. 'cause there are two things that are going to happen here. One of two there. We have one of two pass ahead of us or at least ahead of me so i did a little prep for this. Obviously because you can't just sit there on the leaderboard melia that guy. Although i mean i might so i did some prep. I was like. I have my list. I have a list here. And we're gonna do one of two things. You're going to say your first pick and i'm gonna feel really good about my list or you're gonna say your first pick and i'm going to have to go off board and we'll see which we get say. I think probably the level of fame and name awareness of our players will vary from pick pick some of my picks like they're fairly prominent players but just had sort of escaped my notice or we haven't talked for whatever reason so some people will be like. Yeah of course that guy. Seven to good and others will be like. I've never heard of that guy. Hopefully we'll find the happy medium here. I don't think i picked any all-stars. I kind of forget who was an all star. Who wasn't worried. I don't. I'm not a reliable memory bank for that. Sorry okay well. My first pick is is kind of a cheat. Actually because it's more of a position than a single player. It's like a group of guys who have collectively played a position on a team and have done pretty well. Okay and most my picks here will probably be on not as great teams just because we tend to talk about the teams more so it's more likely to have overlooked players not so good teams but this actually is a very good team. Astros center fielders. Okay astros center. Fielders has been very productive this year and that came as a surprise to me because coming into this year i think that was seen as sort of their weak spot. Maybe even their colegio. Because george springer left and they didn't really replace him with anyone prominent they just kind of kept mile straw around and there was a lot of doubt about whether i'll straw could hit in the major leagues. And then they traded miles trot at midseason but both straw and the players through have replaced him or split time with him. They've all been good and astor center. Fielders as a unit have produced three point. Nine were this year which actually ranks fourth among all centerfield units in. Mlb this year. And you know you could look at the top of that list and cedric. Mullets is at the top. The orioles have had the most productive center fielders. The sheer didn't see that coming but we have talked about cedric. Marlins maybe not enough this year but he has come up but the astros center fielders mile straw. Chaz mccormick shake myers. They heard the three guys who have produced almost all of that playing time. And they've all been good and that surprises me. Mouse draw was expected to be good at defense and he was very good at defense and he's been like a three one player this year and he has hit even better since they traded him to cleveland at the deadline and i was sort of surprised that they traded him to cleveland. Because it's like who's going to replace him well. Apparently chaz mccormick and jake myers and they have both been really good this year. Chess mccormick has a wealth. Only a one zero seven. Opiates plus but you know with the said defense and and base running in all of that and so he has of like you know more than a a wins worth of value in two hundred fifty. Five plate appearances. And then jake myers. He has been good to. He has won twenty. Opiates plus about one hundred plate appearances and those guys combined have. I mean they've outperformed. George springer has not been. It's been ursus. yeah right. So it's weird how that works out. And they've also got four games from cal tucker in centerfield and i don't want to steal one of your picks of cal tucker was going to be one of your picks but i thought about making kyle tucker a pick of mine before i came up with this unit of center fielders. 'cause kentucky's been great and he has actually been the astros best hitter this year. It has not been bregman or Or even korea or your don alvarez or anyone it's been cal tucker and he has mostly played right field but he has been graydon. And i didn't really recognize how great he has been with. Like a one forty nine debussy. Plus that lineup is not a young lineup. But he's twenty. Four alvarez is twenty four like they're two of the younger members there and he has totally blossomed and he was obviously a top prospect but there was some doubt about him because his initial call up did not go well at all and then it seemed like maybe they weren't fully trusting him with the starting job a few years ago but he is turned around and turned into the type of player that they hoped he would be okay. I think that's a good pick on. Its own and it also makes me feel better about the i compiled so it's a really excellent. I'm going to take with my first. Pick omar narvaez. Yeah 'cause you know we've been having a good little year so you know he. He doesn't show up if you're looking at the graphs leaderboard spycatcher. He's not gonna show up on qualified. Lists only has three hundred ninety one plate appearances. So he's below the qualified threshold but he's he has also three and a half one season going for him he has a one thirteen. Wrc plus. but i think the most. I continue to be fascinated by guys like omar narvaez who granted like. I'm sure there's a little bit of noise in the data but who have like really wild swings between times in their careers were they have been just atrociously bad pitch framers and then times the in our crews were..

"Think go top twenty. But i like must grove outfielder. I mean i don't know. I mean i never say well. Maybe you can get this outfit or that outperform because all dependent on what somebody else wants to do. Maybe you can get brian reynolds for. Maybe you can enjoy gala form. I don't know what the other manager lee would or would not do. I won't be pushing at least for brian reynolds for forum. Right and brian reynolds right now. The number ten outfielder for the season. But we don't rank them that way. We probably wearing top thirty so that might be fair. Maybe jared walsh's fair. Your home runs not much else if you want to start and so i got him in an ill only league and i'm trying to move him and i'm not getting a lot of takers a mixed league though. I might shoot as high as gone for t- oscar hernandez and you mentioned reynolds as well. I like the walls price point. Maybe alex for dogo could be in that. Same general ballpark. That tier of nana lead feelers. But right beneath. I love this as like fifty players in the all star game in. Jared wall has to make a diving catch in left field position. He's literally never played before. Jared watts has never played feel anywhere and he played left field in the all star game because they have so many players and they still can't get it right and how they maneuver them all around anyway next except this burner. He's got an ob he wants to know if you prefer fam- or mullins the rest of the way can't believe that's even a question of eight. Cedric has been so good and when you look at his numbers. There's nothing wrong with them. It's all legit right. I mean even the pack sixteen home ruins of sixteen stolen bases. He's he's taken walks. He's not being overpowered. And he's he's a lefty who is doing great against lefties three hundred against lefties some pop so it all looks legit to me so gimme cedric marlins. I know that's that's i. We witnessed that three months ago. But how many damn. He plays a lot but he's had durability issues. In the past and padres have lots of centric. Moans is gonna lead off every day for the rest of the season for his team. Tommy fam- plays what an eighty percent of the time because he misses. He's been playing almost every day for a couple of months though. If we're gonna talk about otani durability we have to mention fam- yes glamour game. That's the thing it's not a. I'm not sure how to characterize it with fam. It's not only the injury but it's also a level of inconsistency that i can't explain. He is kind of jackie bradley. Jr. in its boston red sox as he be awesome for chunks of time and then just completely useless for fantasy and i think that's what Shifts this for me. Laws fan is very good on base percentage leagues. But i'm with you moen's has to be a top fifty player and dress for twenty twenty two doesn't he could end up with an end up for twenty five homers twenty five steals a five category monster top fifty for twenty twenty two with. I know you're thinking eric. It's a little bit fast. Cedric mullins is the number to outfielder for the season behind. Only a koonya. Kunis gone so like i'll take a kuni over moments in an absolute second even with the you you wrote this year but next year. Yes yeah. But i'm saying why are we going to rank said moen's like if you rank kyle tucker number thirty next year. Why wouldn't you moans number thirty. See what i'm getting at here. Like a very good prospect. You took a little bit longer. I mean if we're going to rank ranier roseline number fifty. Why wouldn't we mullins ahead of that. Moses doing better he runs because because when it comes to a year transitioning into the next you may have to make corrections on some of the fluky outcomes and one of them is his home runs are largely fluky has homer. Fly ball rate is way a character for his entire professional career. It's the only thing that i don't like about mullins year. So i'm gonna project next year. That moans steals thirty bases and best to eighty but his fifteen home runs even though he's got sixteen at this year's all-star break. I'll take the under on the homers. But i like your sixteen home runs right now and you don't even think he's going to sixteen all year. But you didn't hear what i said but i'll take the under. I don't feel completely committed today about a rather see of the goes. But i won't be surprised to see thirteen fourteen. I think i'm all in aesthetic moans. Being left handed starting march next year. We're in iraq martin number thirty why are we ranking civic mall. And that's that's key. And by the way i actually think he has a better approach. Martin that feels the points leagues. I like that show with no name. Game for kris bryant. The rest of the way. God i don't give you that guy to you know don't he's the number six third baseman on the player writer for the season. He's having a good season and but he's kind of being like cold under and cubs morass. Will i mean like right. I mean he has a hit lately. They've been losing a lot. He's he's a good player. You might be overrated for fantasy purposes. Though i really going to trade him. I view brian. Now i will be shocked to seventy guy who has twenty five home runs. Knox in ninety every year doesn't run good player very versatile and you were capable of better as well and if he lands in a good situation the upside is that's the custody janos midseason trade finish the downside is. He's maybe barely a top fifteen third baseman. I mean i think you'd have to look at our rankings for where we rank brian as a good name like we could play a name game but in this situation right i mean like i don't wanna get too cute with it either. I mean we both rank. Brian seventy five. I'm pretty sure. I rank them a little bit better than that. But like like you rank him. A brand lau bregman cory seager so obviously you would take those guys over him. So i don't know how we would play a name. Your unless actively changed but your bryant right next to mitch haniger. Okay it makes sense to me. Our guys trade candidates craig candidates. That's about it still basis. They're fine. Yeah and there's probably more safety in the injury department. I think even accounting for brian's history than there is for haniger. Yeah yeah. I actually have them at third base right ahead of al shelhah and your shell to me seems like the if you want to lock in those stats that you just gave us and be safe about it. You'd rather have her show. But do you wanna take the chance that. Brian has one of those great final two months and carries your fantasy team. It's possible you're right. I hadn't thought about that. This could be a nick. Has the second half for him. Like a cobb. I if he gets traded because you could see bright being motivated by being in a pen race and and play in the heck out of left field for the yankees and the final two months. I could see that look what. He's the braves left fielder. I e could good lineup spot. If he lands are opportunities right now with the kuna out. I wonder why any team would go forward right now. Other than the first place team like why would philadelphia. They'll have any prospects as it is and atlanta's not exactly deep some starting pitching in the minors but the late under five hundred. They're going to really go for it right now. I understand you need outfielders. But why didn't you sign out of meat. Like at least he's a proving. I like. I'm a little surprised that they didn't get him. I just didn't get to him. I.
