"On ESPN 1000 your phone calls at 3123323776. But I feel as if we have to lead with the Cubs because they lose to the Marlins today as well. Five toe one in Game one. I feel like there are more dire straits when you look at the Cubs situation than the sock situation. I feel better about the socks right now than I do the Cubs even though they're both facing the same reality tomorrow. If you lose a baseball game tomorrow, you go home for both the North Siders and the South Siders. The Sox are on the road. The Cubs are at home. The Cubs have their ace on the mound and the socks don't know who they're throwing. At this moment, they know so to me. I feel as if the Sox situation is a little bit more comfortable, even though we don't know who the starter is. Then the Cubs because this cub's lineup continues to show us they can not hit in score runs in tough situations. Once again, one run four hits today for the Chicago Cubs. You said it. You know they you went over five with runners in scoring position. You left seven on base. I mean, we talked about it last week, Chris There's two possible elimination games tomorrow one for the White Sox won for the Cubs. If you had to put your money on one team that would rebound from the losses today, it would most likely be the White Sox even With questionable starting because you saw at the end of that game. They started to rally much like you saw some reason there was some life there. Agree. Bases loaded and pray you had a chance. I like. Yes, So I mean, but you know you like it the end of the season when you saw life out of them when they put up eight runs on the Cubs and didn't just pack it and say, Well, the playoffs start so Whatever. I think that It's more likely that the White Sox will be able to rebound and get a win. But if you're the Cubs, there's nobody wanted the mound more than Yu Darvish. He's been your best picture this season has been your best picture going back to the middle of last season, but this is on the offense once again. This is on the offense. And I think this is on David Ross for keeping Kyle Hendricks in a batter too late, you know, and we talked about it yesterday with Lucas Giolito and how you can make that decision because you had a four run lead. In the Cubs situation. You probably should have pulled Hendricks a little bit earlier. I wouldn't have even been upset if he didn't come out for that inning. I've just been like, Okay, You gave us six strong. That's fine. Great job. Now we'll Goto. Now we'll trust the bullpen, and I know you have been able to trust the bullpen very much this season. But this is the playoffs and that's what they're there for. You know, we opened each baseball show with our first pitch. First of.
Pandemic playoffs: Brewers, Astros in despite losing records
"When you woke up on Sunday morning none of the eight matchups were said I. think that's kind of cool that would be like the the final day of the regular season Lebron Yeah I don't even know who we're playing. That's what it was for every single team yesterday in Major League Baseball your dodgers are going to play the brewers who got in yesterday with the first losing record granted at sixty. Games with the first losing record for a team in the history of the Major League Baseball Playoffs there were twenty nine and thirty one opening round best of three all in the same ballpark what are your thoughts and we couldn't lose I mean you know it. Likely not, but we could because his only three games all they got to do is win two of them, right? So baseball is so weird dodgers obviously you mentioned we got him at home dodger stadium. I don't think that you know I'm sure we're going to roll out Walker Bueller in Kershaw and we're going to do what we need to do to get to the next round But you could lose you know teams could lose you know the beginning of the year, the dodgers and the Yankees were pretty much the favorites to to get to the thing. In the end, but then the pandemic happened then we had to do all of the rescheduling and figure out how many games that went on for so long how many games should they play the only WanNa play this amount, the players, WanNa, play that amount it became a money issue, and now we finally have gotten to the point where October will be playoff baseball. Speaking out, let's go through a couple of interesting storylines after this round by the way, then everything is going to be played at trial sites and eventually the world series will be played at the home of the Texas Rangers and they'll wrap that no. Later than October twenty eighth, they want to avoid the second third. So homefield everybody early, and then we're going to neutral sites, Los Angeles San Diego. Texas and Houston quick thoughts the Yankees of the five seat in the AL, the five seat, the rays of the one-seat. What does the same thing with the dodgers? Right? The Yankees could they take care of business they moved their events they don't they go home whether they a one C or DHCP. It's everybody's even really to be honest with you. Everybody's even Garrett Cole. Start, for the Yankees Chain Bieber for the Indians in for all the money they paid Garrett Cole Shane Beavers had a better year he has in when you look at it, there are no fans in the stands. So there's no home field advantage for anybody you know what's great about not having fans the Houston Astros. Left right. Everywhere they go. They are the sick see the astros have made it in baseball's big off season, they should just get blinked. Every time people bring up the Astros are frown just cheated just blatant just cheat to win. They're taking on the Minnesota twins keys, dodgers will take on the brewers the padres in the playoffs for the first time in fourteen years will take on the Saint Louis Cardinals and the much maligned and I know it's a sixty game season. How about the Miami Marlins under? Derek. Jeter, for everything that they have gone through there and they'll get the Chicago cubs. Yeah. They they. They deserve to being I'm happy for I'm happy for Jeeter because when he? Blew everything up and traded. Call Stan and everybody was like Oh they just care about the money. They're completely trash in the organization, and now they're in the playoffs and they take on. Chicago like you said, one

"When healthy is a big emphasis because the guy's not healthy ever wasn't healthy before he wasn't held it before the contract. We gave them a lot of money. He's not healthy African. He's literally not even healthy right now. Like as as I'm talking in this world, he's not healthy. He might not even pitch. But. The thing is like I can't tell if we have no depth or a lot of depth because there's so many people on this on this list that I'm looking I right now for the bullpen that can be a closer Steve seasick, she she shack didn't he didn't have like forty saves for the Marlins one year. He was a part of that gauntlet at the Marlins advertiser where it was. What was Ziegler? Stuck in rider Barrick law. It was just ridiculous. They are just so many people so many moving parts there. Yeah. So like, he's done it before Ken slur. He was a all-star four was administered as a closer. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And then Edwards and stroke. Both showed it in two thousand sixteen do in two thousand sixteen Edwards was top-five arm out of the bullpen in baseball. He was the man. And then last year he fell off Strope like sometimes looks like he's super Lockton at times looks like he's so rattled in the in the late innings, and then Tyler Chow would do what whatever I hate that guy random areas a name that you'll see in and out Dylan may polls comes up and down from AAA Dwayne underway up and down from AAA. These are guys that like can't do it. But just don't if that makes sense does. And you know last question is if I put you on the spot on a lie detector is this team going to win the division in how many games do you think they're going to win? Yes. And yes, they are gonna win this division. Coda? Had them one in eighty games. Yeah. They hadn't being last. Yeah. They had they had the reds. But I think they had him last in the central. They had the reds went in like eighty four games. Reds made good moves joy vodka was maybe my favorite Noncovic in baseball. The brewers. Good team. We're don't we this guys? How do the brewers continue this without starting pitching? Everyone's like, yeah. It's good starting pitching. They may have been top last year. Can you name their starting pitching rotation? Dude. Whenever I asked that in Milwaukee. It's got Jimmy Nelson. His toddler Anderson, chilling Anderson. Sorry wrong. Chase Anderson wrong Anderson. It sounds like you've got twenty five years into the show. Yeah. That's honestly, what it sounds like. It's just like a terrible name generator. And then like a guy can throw like ninety four. But they both like and Mike miss is playing second base. So there's negative war. Yes. He is. Today. They can't they're not the ones I'm worried about in the central though, I'm worried about your favorite, you know, rival, basically that's not across town in Saint Louis. God you're scared. I know you text me your like should I be scared? I was like you should be scared. Yeah. All in all sports. My least favorite team in the whole world is is the Saint Louis cardinals. And then other than joy vodka, my favorite non cub in all of baseball was Paul Goldschmidt. And now they're in other basically married in that my heart sank the cardinals have away to find stupid names like the brewers have. And they bring up like fat Matt Adams who and then Matt carpenters, obviously, a really good player. But he wasn't supposed to be like these guys aren't supposed to be good baseball players. These guys look like. They work at like chasing. And they come up and hit twenty five home runs, and they'll have a pitcher come out of nowhere to. I'm of all teams. I am scared of the cardinals. I really am. I think the cubs win ninety two ninety three games next year. I don't know what that means for the central because I don't know what the cardinals do last year they have stack lineup and they sucked for the I seventy five percent of the season..

"From wear for the moment. Yeah. I mean, that's a perfect segue to the outfield because you have a very good and bad problem. You have a lot of good players, but not a lot of positions for them. But I think what feels is looking at is probably what every superstitious fan, including myself will say as soon as you trade, you know, say Russell in Bodey Brian's going out with a year long injury or Russell's going out. I mean by is going out your lung injury. And then it's baseball. It's everything interest sports karma's how things work is never bad. They'd have depth. And when guys are on team control or minimum salary like a devils or bend attending for the Red Sox or Blake Snell for you know, the. For Tampa Bay. For example, you want hold onto those guys. And I think that's what maybe stopping them, but the infield crowded the outfield is probably even more crowded. You have Jason Heyward whose contract is going nowhere. He's only twenty nine years old, which is why. Because I think he's eighty five the I feel like he's been league forever. But after his first disastrous year cubs fans have to get over that since then has been worth the money, not twenty five million dollars a year, basically. But is he worth two seventy plus Gogol defense to sixty batter. Yes, that's a very good valuable thing in the lineup. So he's helping call Schwab ever really can't play the outfield. But as you know, Joe Madden is shown he doesn't care about throwing a pitcher in left field. If it means getting certain guys out there. He does not value left field as the -fensive part at all maybe even negative. He could care less. So that Schwab or spot a guy that is taking over the outfield by storm in could be the NL central by store. Is Albert Maura. He's unbelievable. And we talked earlier about how this team goes through. It's almost everybody just has a bad month or two randomly throughout the season. And then they explode backup. You talked about it before the show. If I'll Maura can keep it going. He plays five star defense. He's got great speed. He can he can any contact all the time if he can stay consistent, and maybe add a little pop. A we looking at like a legitimate four five tool player, Alvin or Maura is awesome. He's like everything that you just said and more when he's on. He is like in the outfield Heacon. Honestly, I have yet to see a ball or I'm like, oh l'amour can't get there. He covers ground. Sometimes that just blows my mind. He's made several top ten plays. He's made. Several like diving catches in in the gaps that may be ten fifteen players in all baseball can can maybe get to. And I think it's it's sort of what I was saying earlier how he's in a spot where if he if you go like two or three games, we don't offer you're looking over your shoulder. Like, oh now and bench. Now now has got me. Now, I'm moving over to right field where I hate it. I think he just needs spot. That's like, hey, dude. This is your from everything that I've seen. He's like he's like his characteristics in his his demeanor is he's he's like a leader talented guy. He was the leader on on all of his young USA teams coming through the minors and college everything I've ever seen his personality is like a leader. Watch me like, I'm gonna talk talk. I'm going to walk the walk Washington, author and do it. And I think his personality type does not help the situation where he's constantly thinking like dude if I if I drop a ball if I make a bad throw make. Like if I go over four three case for an I I'm not playing tomorrow, that's not going to help them. That's why I want half shift outta here. Give more a little more breathing room. And I think if he has a breakout year it's going to be another Baya's type ever. He just takes the league. You got you like seeing guys like that, especially I'm pretty sure he was one of the os. I pay cts if not Dios first pick. I think I think he was. Yeah..

"But he like, I think he was even like left off off the shredder for it'll be network top ten third baseman. And a lot of a lot of cubs writers and cubs reporters are saying the he's he's got like he's just Matt like when people ask about them last year. Like, hey, what happened last year? How do you feel about this year? He kind of has a chip on his shoulder like journalists thing to say, but he like it's crazy that people forget how good this guy actually is. There's a big elephant room and his. James Addison, Russell. The cubs are no stranger to domestic violence in their players. They had roles Chapman who they traded for. They trade. One of the best players in baseball at the time. Prospect wise for him who is going to be a very good baseball player for while. They've Addison Russell was a very good shortstop. When playing only twenty five years old three years of team control left only making three point four million this year suspended for a while the Mesic abuse does he fit into this team? If he doesn't fit into this team. I I would assume you trade him for starting pitching, either prospect or depth. What do you think I have been so anti Russell since the beginning of last season? Like, even even back. There was like a little time that I had like a blog, and I wrote this huge article on why to trade Addison Russell after like twenty sixteen. There has been rumbling since like since he came up pre 2016 sixteen World Series. This guy's a scumbag. This guy is the way. Worst. He has like two or three different kids with two or three different women. He's constantly seen out at at nightclubs at two three four in the morning in in Chicago when they have a day game the next day. There's like this guy on on Twitter. I forgot his name. But every time he spotted Russell in a nightclub or has like seen tweets about it. He tracks Russell's day game stats for the next day. And Russell bats like like under one hundred. He's so bad. The dude is not taking the serious. He so naturally Townsend. Baseball wise, he fits into this team. Perfect. I think he's like one of the most perfect shortstops in like in baseball when it comes to like build and skill set and feeling and hitting the the man but perfect dude, exactly. But it's not it's real life sucks. Get them off my team. Honestly right now, just cut him. I don't care if you go somewhere and like wins the World Series because he's a huge like keep of apart. I wouldn't even be mad. I just don't want them on our. Team. Texas do that all the time. Yeah. Texas would take him you know, happily with a smile on his face. I agree. I think he needs to be moved on from this team. I think the cubs needed to get away from that whole like y'all get these guys second chances. But I think that they're gonna try and raise his stock. I think he plays the cubs this year at some point if he's decent someone gets hurt. He gets moved for whatever feels not an idiot. He's not going to give them away for free. And the way baseball is now on the way sports are now you literally can get away with murder and still play all in all we know is not a great guy. But he helps the baseball team, and he will help this organization either by getting traded for somebody or playing I just don't know which what yet moving to a happier topic. You've another utility guy absorbs two point, oh, David Bodey. He's a bigger, dude. But he's at like as all hell where did you see him this year? He I think he's gonna get sixty seventy games this year. He's he like he has his zobrist. He's not as good. He's he's not like a smart savvy veteran, but he has. Moments. He was huge for the cubs last year. I think he I doubt his his wars this high. But he was a reason that the cubs won like three or four games last year include that grand slam do that grand slam. I didn't see live. But it's awesome. I bet it was man. It was great. Didn't that was helmet..

They all these studs and Jomon is there, and I feel like he's just there in Chicago. And I feel people kind of get an over his like his kind of thing. What do you think about you'll manage Gago the media there? Do they love him anymore? They over it are they like all right, man. Like, stop drinking wine the press conference stop talking about this cool shit. You do like where's the normal glasses like figure it out yet? The definitely are starting to turn on them. It's it's people hate him. But you're seeing a lot more articles here. And there are a lot more tweets in income Twitter like like from fans being like do what's this guy doing and then they like pick apart some of his moves you can obviously go back to two thousand sixteen World Series. And there's like five six seven or eight different times where you're just like Joe, man. You're just over thinking everything you don't he over thinks making breakfast in the morning. This guy really does. He like, he's the kind of guy that Syria you'll you'll like poke and eggs, and then he will extract the yoke from it. And then he'll shake up the the white in the egg. And then mixed the egg yolk and the together to make like scrambled eggs and just just the throat away to eat to go get like. Legal. Exactly. Yeah. He's like, oh, I hate eggs. Bam. Yeah. That's why I don't. That's why I don't like Madden. And I don't like all the the nonsense that people be like, oh, he's like a young guy whisper, not really just let's see a young guys do whatever they want seventy eight years old. Yeah. Like like, my whole thing on Ben's overseas. I think that he's overrated. He's a very consistent player player. But people like Morville him like he's a must need like he is the guy the that's why I don't like zobrist because he is a very consistent. He backs to seventy five every year pretty much minus last year in the before we bad really loan really high. Very nice guy. There's lots of the community. That's not my thing. It's just everyone makes them seem like he's like Mookie Betts since like, oh, he plays everywhere in bets all the soften. He doesn't do that stuff. The two of them together kind of broken the like the era of specialization almost if you think about it in the kind of go hand in hand that was the guy in Tampa that. Vicky guy. Yeah. It's his it's his backup plan. It was like having. I'm trying to think of who John Farrell just like would not let go of when Joe Kelley sucked now just ninety Barnes and Mattie Barnes. He just switched off with them. And Aaron Boone just constantly rolling out. Gary Sanchez, basically, even when he was batting like point nine five..

"It's the worst like the Burston even go to the World Series. There were just closer than the cubs did. So I don't get why I get all this shit. But it sucks like ninety five wins is a great season. But literally not even playing a series is so salty, it's such a salty taste. So you'll miss is a little weird because we have the looming problem shortstop that is asinine Russell. So let's talk about the guy. That played second base last year. And then we'll kind of work around it. How beer by is probably had one of the best seasons by cub in the last. What do we want to say ten years? If you take Chris Bryan that. Yes. Yeah. If you take if you take Brian out he probably had the best cub season since like, Derek Derek Lyng Sosa to have a second baseman slash shortstop. Blaster hit thirty four home runs is almost unprecedented. You have to go around the league and find guys like that. You're a shortstop and center field being the positions that you can you know, sacrifice defense because you need that you need to have a defensive presence that each tier of the of the of the field, basically heavier by his might be the best second baseman in baseball. If we take out who they'll to my opinion, what is going on with him. And can he better he cut down on the on the strikeouts? He he's a great base runner, obviously, stole home. He makes amazing flashy plays again like concerto. It's not cockiness. It's just so much confidence that when he does a little bit of in. They're whatever dude when you when you are playing second or third. Dive in the hall, make a diving play get up throat, a I in while you're doing all that you. Will be cocky, I don't care, man. You know what? I mean, it is cockiness, but that's okay. He's backing up like, it's the conflicts line. But it's bregman is exactly pregnant can do whatever he wants. Because he he he doesn't like he can sure he can yell scream in your face. But he's batting three hundred and making Gogol plays. Like, Erin havi does the same thing. And he finally backed up with his back considering the only downside of the kid was yet. It's great. But he's going back to forty. But now he's bat in two eighty three hundred. So the whole conversation changes. He's still he's still bites at at some of those sliders, and there's you can always tell like once again there, isn't that bad. Oh, two one two and an everybody in the park. Everybody watching on TV knows a sliders coming in by still chases it if you can if you can recognize that earlier and followed offer or hold off on doing in. He'll go from two seventy to eighty two to ninety three hundred kind of guy. And and if he has another year like last year, then people are. Going to say he's like a top fifteen player in baseball top ten player in baseball. Should he be fun for being completely honest? I love him. Yeah. He's. Tease way better than that other bumming guys go ahead. Just do it. Just rip it just bends over socks baseball. Can we can we agree to that? He's Jones alleged Joe Madden. He's a man to man. Thank you. Joe madden. Joel Madden coached himself, and you guys out of a World Series. At a rain delay saved you. Sure. Yeah. I listen. I love the cubs like for people that don't know the cubs. My second favorite team family in Chicago. It's a whole thing. And granted bends over set a great year last year played hundred and forty games batted over three hundred was its reward player, very good here. But he's a very tricky player. He never batted over to set to seventy five to eighty before that and people talk about him like he's like the the you need 'em. Like all you need a guy bends over on because he plays. We'll positions in the playoffs. He kinda shines. And that's where it is. But I don't like bends over. It's my thing. Joe Madden is not a good manager. It's all smoking mirrors bringing bear cub to the, you know, spring training getting the guys loosey goosey. He did the same thing in Tampa..

"Hell all all very handsome as well. A guy that's very the opposite of contrast. When it comes to consistency is one of my favorite players in baseball. All former Red Sox. Great by great. I mean when he was sixteen he was signed, but Anthony Rizzo at first base gives you pretty much what you're gonna get every single year, which is all star level first baseman. He's always going to get you one hundred RBI is he's always gonna be around to eighty. He's always gonna hit thirty or thirty or more doubles. And he's always gonna hit twenty to thirty home runs. I mean you. Can't ask for much more and on top of that one of the best contracts in baseball. I don't think he's ever made over fifty million dollars. He makes like eleven or twelve this year than he is to club options left at fourteen million each and he's only twenty nine years old sue gut him in his prime of his age and the prime when the team what's it like having a guy there that you never have to worry about you literally never have to worry about this guy ever. I don't I don't think he's ever had a hot or he may have in the past few years. He has not had a hot April or may and every single year people freak out. She'll be like you said the guy's gonna give you two eighty thirty one hundred every year. No matter what he has. He has a gold glove. Now. He makes the flashy fall ball plays all the time. He loves jumping up on the tar hanging out by the by the brick. He's a great defender. He loves that guy. He loves he loves that area. I love this guy. He did. He's he's the man is there. Anybody in sports not like not just baseball in. Sports that deserves a captain like titled more than him, but doesn't have it. Oh, he's one of those guys that deserves to see I mean, just even him in the World Series run talking to David Ross just he's so animated, but he's so honest and open, and he he just relaxed and he has a good time. He, but he doesn't get too high doesn't get too low. He's excited, but he doesn't he doesn't annoy people he's not super negative. He's he's he's he knows when to play cards, and he's just such a great guy to on top of it team. That is full of kids. He's also a kid, but he's twenty nine years old. He's not he's not the twenty five year old rookie sensation young guy anymore. I mean, he's kind of the leader of the kids if you will between Cottrell heiress and Brian and buyers and all them because they're all younger than him. Yeah. He's like he's like the old brother out there. Like, yeah. He is. He's the older brother. Cousin? Yeah. Yeah. And like dude every even everything down to. Him choking up with two strikes. That's the kind of stuff that you just like I eat that for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love when when players do like like there has been like science be like. Oh, yeah. That does nothing. And then some science says, oh, it does everything. I don't care. It just shows like he will do anything to win. He's the guy that you want up in October to just get your like a bloop single up or Pokemon through like infield. That's that's that's playing in stuff like that. He's he's the guy that I want. So before we go like any further and talk about all the other positions because there's so many more positions to talk about. Can we talk about the absolute collapse at the end of the season? God. Yes. Yes. We can't basically I say that the nobody is out of Chicago. We are life name when five from Rockford, Illinois. That's about an hour hour and a half west of of Chicago. And then that's my hometown. But I live in..

"Like, he's the guy that if you want like a a a Red Sox type turnover where you have one core win a few. And then now a new Corwin a few. He's the guy that has to stay long term. Get I one hundred percent agree. When like we said, we think he's obviously one of the best players in baseball and one of the best catchers in baseball. What is there something that he can get better? I mean, obviously catchers aren't going to be spectacular hitters unless you're a once in a generation player. Like Mara was for a couple years BUSTER Posey as well. What can he do better this year that he didn't do? Well, not not well, but didn't do as well last year. I guess one stay healthy. But to again, it's going to be a a repeat kind of episode a lot of people on this team. Have this problem? He just goes through a three or four weeks stretch where he bats like one ten one twenty and like an an and like the way that mad seems to play around with lineups. But he doesn't do as much as people thing if you have like four or five or six guy, you're not gonna go any any lower in the lineup. So if you have that like three or four weeks stretch where you just can't hit anything and you're still staying at five six like it's it's gonna catch. To the team. And that's and that's what he did last year. It was kind of a down year. Even though wasn't the all-star starter last year. Yes. The catcher team was though. That's a good point. Yeah. It helps being the dubs. Yeah. It really does. It's great cow what integrate franchise it's great again. Again, we should say. Yes. Exactly. But yeah, dude. Like, he's he's just like he's just like really streaky. And if he can consistently just just stay out of those slumps and not just like rake, but just not go over fifteen over twenty. His defense is awesome. He has a really quick throw to first cubs. Loved thrown a first and okay, honestly, guys. Let me ask you this. What what's a cooler? All a catcher picking somebody off at first base. That is such a cool feeling watch. Throw to first base. Yeah. Right. We see San Leone snap down. All the time. The first base. It's exciting plate the heads up play. It just makes you think as a runner it has different elements, especially when you have a guy like John lawsuit. Blue Jit doesn't know how to throw to first base. Exactly. But yet it seems like insurance loves doing that. And like the whole team gets pumped that's outside. It's other than like a clutch homerun or a Ravi home body with the grand slam. Yeah. That was great watch that life. I did not watch that alive. It's a it's a sore subject in my life. But we'll. That that he makes it so he's just so cool about it. Like, I. Great smile. Handsome, son of a bitch gray baseball player. I'm so happy. We have them. Well, you got a lot. There's some very similar about the calls where all their rookie seemed to come up and make a big moment and they come up like mid years. So you had contrary issue had boy you had Rizzo you had Kris Bryant even when he came over four that day. But you know, he came up and obviously Ozzy played really well Russell bias flashes..

Look like for them. Awesome. Why don't we go over catcher? Because I need talk about my boy, I you do love Anthony Rizzo. But that's not who my. That's my guy. We're talking about whistle control is a guy that if like we discussed prior if DAT room. It'll didn't exist would probably have an argument for the best catcher in baseball along with guys. Like BUSTER Posey if we're talking about offensively and defensively what is the impact with him. And what is the future in the distant future? Obviously. Because Wilson is the age that he is love love. Love wasn't chairs everything you ever hear out of cubs Twitter cubs riders and like from the actual cubs players that he is. He is the easy going and works hard shows his source has a leadership through hard work kinda guy. Like, he's like a glue. He's a staple in the clubhouse and on top of all that. He's really good at playing the sport of baseball. Like what else could you honestly, ask out of a catcher he like he's the whole classic controls. The pitching staff manages the game. All that. But he does it with like he's so cool. He's just so confident and I love him. Honestly, say this a lot with it's just a bunch of cool. Guys. They're all confident they smile, but they all they're all. So good baseball, contrary is the man I'd say he's like one of the three guys in this core that you need to get signed long-term..
