"Do you adapt to this at all because it seems to me the market is pricing saves at least in terms of the we're looking at in that draft. They are pricing saves more heavily than I'm willing to do it. I'd rather pay for the top tier and ignore these their pricing saves higher because there aren't more than fifteen guys you can count on its why Kodiak I'd like him. But I need thirty saves. I think he can do that. So. So I look at when I look at other sites ADP or even ours for that matter, I take it kind of seriously. But only AJ said I can wait a couple more rounds. If I know nobody's taking hunter Renfro away in a fifteen team expert league. Like when we're in now weaker just went I can't even wait on. Was that what you? That was me. And I got a nasty comment. More about it. Do I need to. So he's dancing between Stanley criticize. And this is a row by five league. But I like the guy. Yeah. No, I do too. So I guess over the next couple of weeks. I'm learning more that maybe I had learned about like stats and second half the season injury potential. Maybe this injuries and healing as well playing time like for Winker could be a factor there as well. The only other thing I might I might take a look at us. If there's been a major overhaul of coaching staff, and perhaps like, you know, Joey Gallo now got a new new hitting coach and Louis RT's like, you know. Gee, see him more. You know, hitting the ball the other way versus trying to pull the that's a good one chili Davis. Yes. I've seen numerous tweets from people saying, I don't think he's a good hitting coach with that concern, you it might if I if I see a distinct difference of protest the plate in spring training is spring training. People try things they might reject it out of hand by the time. The season starts when accounts like my salaries online, I'm going to try that anymore. But certainly those situations where I might pay close attention and might wiggle my stats little bit. Our next year. We'll talk about players to watch in spring training. And like, you said different approaches best shape of our lives. Disguise. Never ran before's got eight stolen bases and spring training that could matter so shape of my life. So that's good.

"And if they did work out things might have been different, right? And you're also not spending an extra twenty million on Cole hamels. Yeah. If the pitchers that you brought in last year work out for you. So yeah, I get it. They didn't have the greatest offseason last year dos. It's going to hurt them in this off season. And it may hurt them in the following offseason. As they make up for the mistakes of last year. If everything works out this year, Fred you said a couple of minutes ago that they should be the best team in the with their pitching staff. They're pitching staff. I think is very very good. And again, we're expecting you Darvish Darvish and not what we saw last year. Yeah. And the the point that I would make is is that good enough because I agree. Yeah. They should win the division. But they got pretty close to winning the division lashed ninety five that there was another team that beat them the brewers and then you had to play the wild card game. And that's where you also the Rockies. So it's not it's not just getting to the dance. Right. A cub fan is thinking this a championship window. So can you advance in the playoffs? And that's something where I go back to seasons. You got to the NFL CS. You didn't have enough to beat the dodgers. Right. And your bullpen wasn't good enough. And the way the dodgers beat you in that series. You're often soon show up either that's two seasons ago. I'm not just saying that this one wildcard loss is the end of the world. It seems to me that even though you are at that plateau being a really really really really good team with ninety five wins. I don't know if that's good enough to win another World Series. Or is it just all about locking baseball. And as long as you get there. Yeah. Maybe figure it out. And maybe you don't and last year was just a year that you don't. And maybe this year you do. It's funny that you mentioned that those words because we'll talk more football to throughout the course to the show, but you know, in football, they always say just get to the playoffs and anything can happen. And this is going to be the sixth year in a row that either a one or two seat goes to the Super Bowl from both the AFC NFC. So it's not just get to the post season in in the NFL in baseball. Sometimes it's a little different. There are wildcard teams that actually get to the World Series that does happen. But there's also less teams in the playoffs shared baseball than there are in football one other thing want to get to in callers hanging there. Three one two three three two three seven seven six. Theo talking about the offensive collapse in the second half of last season. After having offensive urgency or. Being completely unsatisfied with how our offense performed in the second half is the state of our office. I'm right there with you. We we we we are. We are disturbed by what happened in the second half. It was completely unacceptable. And I'm every bit as upset about it. Now, I can't believe it. I still can't believe it happened. Everybody was upset. Now is I was adapted and it's unacceptable to fix it. So. We that process. Started the day after the season it continues to this day. I, you know, we haven't acquired the volume of players that we typically do I can tell you that this front office the individually we've worked. Every bit as hard if not harder than me out of every previous AUSSIE. We've been doing things to try to fix. This is a process that starts with honesty. And it was plenty of honesty, you know, for me in that press conference, and and with our players, exit interviews. To accountability. And you have to acknowledge your role in what went wrong, and I certainly knowledge my role in what went wrong. Key decision, but didn't turn out immediately. The way we wanted them to contributed to us getting where we weren't every member of the organization including the players. Of course, the coaches in front office all of us played some all in in falling. So far short of the results that we wanted out of that offense at the second half. And then after you're honest accountable, then you have to make adjustments and in that process is the hard part, and that's been going on all with every single of our players had a meeting and has been making fundamental whether swing approach to their conditioning like our guys are harder at work than than they've ever been not as simple as saying, oh, they're gonna take a duck. But you have to the league is to our guys. There's a significant amount of growth that happens we need to learn from what happened last year. But do I think it's going to happen? Absolutely. I think it's gonna happen. Do you think we'll think contrary is going to be the hitter that he was in the second half of last year? Here's an example. Of course, not. But he needed to be honest about what happened to be accountable you need to make adjustments. And and this group of players has done three things in the last partner is is what lies ahead is third is that you have to show up and execute with urgency. Not wait for your talent, the manifest not assume will be good because we're the cubs and not let the season develop and see where you are applying these adjustment with her. Hey, what he does sound pretty aggravated? I'll tell you. Yeah. He does sound pretty aggravated. He used Addison accountable and adjustments. And I worry what a lot of players are gonna make adjustments at the same time. I'm worried that you know, in spring training will mean something because of these guys are all making adjustments to swings. And hopefully, it's just there to strike approach because I think that was awful last year. And that's I think the one thing with the hitting coach leaving chili Davis. And there was more on that with reports out of New York saying that basically he was chased away by Kris Bryant and. Anthony rizzo. How about that? Yeah. And obviously the cubs came out and denied that Joe Joe Madden denied it too. But then he also said that chili Davis is a tremendous hitting coach. Yeah. Just not I guess for this team. You know, what's interesting about listening to THEO strong comments and props Awad on Soviet for the interview because feel meant business. Yeah. In that interview. Jed Hoyer yesterday. Did you hear him with cap? I did he seemed to have a bit of a different approach to that. Same type of question. He seemed to be more measured and kind of pointed to the fact that you know, for most of the season they were second in runs scored. Right. Offense was pretty damn good last year. Was it a freak thing that at the end of the season? The by the bats went quiet. Absolutely. But you know, we we are pretty good. And then later, you're THEO THEO is pissed is he is it's fascinating. Because I think you could go down both avenue. News, right. Like, you can look at it as a complete failure of a season or you could take the measured approach of look at all the data in for the most part. Yes. Some guys had a dip. But in many points of the season, they were actually pretty successful. Yeah. I thought they were they were pretty successful the, but that the last month and a half they score runs. No. And that's what cost them. That's what led them to have to play in a wildcard game. And not win the division. Three one two three three two three seven seven six. Let's go on out the lake view on hunter hunter, you're on ESPN thousand what's going on. Hey, what's up, basically, I don't really buy the whole analogy about, you know, just having eaten your whole steak dinner, Ruth, Chris. And then you're like dessert, we can't have it a terrible analogy a car. You don't want to change the motor. Yeah. I get that. But you need an oil change. I mean. Seven thousand miles there. Oil change need to change the personnel. We need a second basement. Russell is gonna be suspended. You know, decent amount of the year. Yeah. And that's one of the reasons I appreciate the call hunter. That's one of the reasons. I was a little surprised they didn't go after DJ LeMay Hewitt. I know that names come up a lot with me and Murph on Saturdays because we liked him. When he was here. The first time before they made they made that trade, but DJ LeMay who signed for nine million a year two years nine million per it's like there was no money for him. You didn't that kind of money? I mean, did you did you not hear the cubs media blitz? The last pay the singers Gallagher way that much over the course of you know, how the season or something. I nine million sound like much, especially if they're they would move a guy here or there because otherwise right now. You know, who's your second basement? Is it Ben zobrist? Is it going to happen? Daniel the scowl. So I mean, who's who's played second base for you. When the season starts. I mean, listen, I asked the question today on capping company, and it's a question. I've asked to you many Friday nights throughout the fall. And even in the summer I end of last year, we were told there was money. Yeah. For free agents and spending for this team because they were making their printing money right up at Wrigley field with the new hotels Zachary the new club. What is it nineteen fourteen? Isn't that the name of their club in there all the executives and everyone in the suites at Wrigley field all the renovations? Everything going on up there the summer concert series, everything that takes place Gallagher way as you just daily six concerts. Yeah. They make enough money doesn't Billy Joel play every other weekend when they're on the road all of this. We were told right? So I asked the question today is it out of the realm of possibilities. You said zero to one hundred of the percentile of the realm of possibility that THEO that Tom Ricketts in jed Hoyer over the last three days have just kind of lied about not having money. And maybe there is something store to the side in case Abe rice Harper does become available at the price that works for them. I'm not saying they're going to go out and be outbid everyone else. But if there is the possibility that the number of Bryce Harper's looking for isn't there? And then they come back to the cubs in this. All right. Will you guys do five years for one hundred fifty mill right, whatever the case may be? Whatever that is thirty thirty year, which is more than anybody's averaging right now. What percentage would you say that that's complete BS in that? That's crazy talk. Or would you say, you know, maybe there's like a five percent chance now cap Boyle today, like told me immediately, no way, they have no money. Absolutely no zero percent. All right, fine. I'm just asking. Fans think the same thing that I wonder if they're just leading us on because they don't want everyone else to know that they have something set aside. Yeah. Well, you know, what we could ask Jesse that jesse's working hearted over at the cub convention. He will join us. We come back three one two three three two three seven seven six Jesse. You'll join us. We got Sam Matsen from pro football focus coming up at eight o'clock. We'll play a little bit more of the field before we're out of here. We're here til nine.

"Chili Davis and move quickly to hire the suddenly available. Anthony, I oppose because his boss Jeff Bannister out in Texas allowed him the opportunity to look around and came back to the organization that he had once worked in as the minor league hitting instructor and that leads us to our guy Jesse Rogers here on ESPN one thousand okay, Jesse you heard raise we've heard THEO. And he didn't know if he was gonna make coaching changes. And now we've seen chili Davis. Make some comments to Gordon whitmire. I thought an interesting interview where are you on all this? And who it redeems is that John Malian who it takes a shot at that? Theo Joe where is it? Yeah. Let's let's take a step back. And just say, you know, I don't know of anyone really has the answer. I certainly don't and it's obvious jet in THEO are searching themselves, this is sort of a new age of baseball. We're in. I think we see that the launch angle as the strike outs. The home runs all that stuff. I mean, I think we're we're trying to figure it out. I'm not paid to do it. You're not paid to do it. They are. And I give them credit. Their actions are admitting their mistakes in a sense. You know, what I mean three hitting coaches in three years where contending teams means. There's some confusion there, obviously. And the results show that I think the firing I think what they did show to mistakes. Firing maley was a mistake in hiring Chile was a mistake. And Chile did what he was supposed to do. We've said I've said this to you over and over and over again, some blame falls in the players. There's no doubt. And I talked to Chile on Friday for for a long time in the parking lot at Miller park. It was going into the NFL CS. Playoffs any any any said similar things? But you you have to understand this is from Chile's perspective, and I'm not even saying he's right or wrong. But of course, he doesn't believe the players. Listen to knock the word. He kept using with with me as we just didn't mesh wasn't meshing with the players because of of you know, the the sort of back and forth. This is there's a team of sluggers that they were trying to turn into sort of different heaters. More more more well rounded hitters, which is a good idea. But it's pretty hard in this day and age to change the dynamic of your offense when you've drafted a type of hitter. So that's my conclusion about this whole thing. Chili Davis would have been perfect for the two thousand fifteen royals. They were not a home run hitting team. They were a hit the ball hit hit behind the ball. Go. The opposite way kinda hitting team Chile would have been perfect for them Chile was the wrong fit here that's obvious now, and it kind of became obvious even as the season went along just looking at the results they were getting those opposite field. It's but they weren't getting enough of them. And they certainly wouldn't weren't hitting enough home runs to win games. So yes, I think they've corrected a mistake. They made no is I is I oppose see, you know, the exact same guy. John mealy, obviously, not for two different human beings. But their philosophies are similar so you until Seo's speaks publicly. We don't know exactly what he was thinking. But it's pretty obvious. They're gonna go back to letting the hitters be who they are while trying to tweak here and there. I mean, there's no doubt two years ago. Guys. There were twenty eighth bringing them in home from third with less than two outs. Nobody liked that. They were twentieth. This past season. That's a little bit better. So you wanna you wanna continue to be better in that area? But not change who you are reciters. And I think that's what's going on here. In the last thing, I've talked a lot of people in the game. I'm talking former players talking hitting instructors that work with current players. Now even cubs players, and I'm not getting the same answer even twice. You know, what I mean, I'm getting ten different answers from ten people. And I think you know, in talking to John mealy couple of years ago before he left the bottom line is the game has changed where you have to hit over that shift instead of through it. And if you worry so much about hitting against it. You're gonna end up with the season. The club said you might have some opposite field hits the other way. But you're not gonna have the run total you want consistently. Well, Jessica as you kind of touched on a few things there. That's what kind of had me curious so much and ask you now is hitting coach, or at least chilies role was come in here and make these guys more all around hitters. You talked about the team full sluggers. These are professionals have been doing it for a long time. I kind of think about like in my sport and basketball, if somebody grabbed Klay Thompson or Kawhi Leonard said, hey, you're shot you're making them. But let's go ahead. Let's try tinker with that thing. And let's try and make your stroke better. That's gonna be hard to doodo professional. He's been doing it for so long. So how much can these guys truly by in and how much impact can set hitting coach truly have one of the things in moneyball the book from years ago? That was just a great book was that on bass guys are are are are drafted. They're not made. Once you get them. They are they are they they come up through high school as guys that understand the strikes on you can't turn happy by is into an on base guy. And that's obvious. The best year of his life. He still didn't have a great on-base percentage. I think it's the same thing. Here is what you're saying Kyle Schwab for the most he's a slugger any Andy's an on base guy, but via walk. He's not this punching Judy guy that's gonna go the other way Kris Bryant is they slugger at the end of the day. He is he and his dad perfected the launch angle thing. Well, before anybody at the majors was talking about it. So yes, I think and here's the other aspect because the shifts because of the velocity and all the good pitching out of the bullpen. These days. You you may not be able to do three or four things. Really? Well, maybe you can only do one or two takes shorter. For example, hit the ball the park and have such a good. I that when they try to put you away you take your walks. You know what I mean? So yes, I think I think they tried to take her. This is on Joe as much as anyone tried to take her too much with guys they drafted that. We're good at doing one thing and not the other. And maybe that's just what you have to do is be as good as you can't be head to the playoffs. And if you have a playoff like sixteen you win the World Series. Do you ever play off like seventeen you don't? And that's the roll the dice at the playoffs are all about. But at least fifteen sixteen seventeen you gave yourself a better chance than the offense. We saw at the end of eighteen talking to Jesse Rogers on ESPN one thousand with Jordan cornet. I'm David Caplan. Okay. So is this point back? We got six hitting coaches in eight seasons when next year commences is this a blowback on. Feeling jed is the last handful. All I'm Joe, Matt. How would you characterize because for an organization that prides itself on stability sustained success? Six hitting coaches in eight years isn't a good look. Yeah. I'd probably put this back on THEO. Now, I'm more speculating than know exactly every details. Like, you know, what I'm saying here. But still in talking to probably I feel like really is invested in hitting as much as like he really for guy that didn't play really knows his stuff like he famously Sasha Warburg, I'm video, and, you know, call dollar scouts off. This is our guy. So maybe you know, because he's so invested in that he he he sees the nuance changes that need to be made over the years. Yeah. I I if you guys know what I'm saying like, that's his thing. I think I feel like in talking to him. So those first couple years, I mean, I don't even think they cared. They just had warm bodies there. I mean, rob deer was hitting coach for this team under. Theo. So, but but once they got good, I think mainly was the right guy for the guys they drafted. They drafted sluggers in is they slugger at the end of the day Schwarzer, Brian mainly was look what mainly did with Addison. Russell. I mean, Russell we didn't know what he was when he came up necessarily any brought the power out in them. And I think that if mainly it stayed, and maybe I oppose you'll take over we would've seen guys gradually get better at the end of the day, though. I don't mind the idea of instilling what Chile brought to the table. But maybe it just can't do it. Like like, you know, just can't turn that switch. It has to be just a little bit here. And there in situations with two strikes that kind of thing. So and I said this I think Saturday the Murph chilies way of doing things might be outdated and even Chile is going through a little soul searching here about all this why he's an affable great guy. Cap been around him at least a little bit. He's a very nice guy is so I don't think they connected professionally. I don't think there was any personal problems. But they didn't connect professionally and even chilies wondering why did it happen in Boston? Why did it happen with the cubs? And I think because the game has changed in players have changed. Greg walker? Former hitting coach got out of the business because of because of this. But he was the head of the game. Chilly might be next. So I think John Mealey's in the Anthony I postseason for now are the present. I don't know if they're the future because things are always changing, but they are the president right now. And you do give up something when you have those guys preaching launch angle. But at the end of the day, we've already seen it back to back. You're you you have more success one way than the other. So that's my take before we let you go. What's the next coaching move that happens or is the staff set? Well, Brandon height has now interviewed with three teams. I actually texted with him. And he's thrilled that even got looks Toronto. I'm sorry. Minnesota texas. In the angels. Unsure if he's going to get any of them, if he doesn't then I think there's a little bit more of a status quo. But I have not heard for sure that Jim hickeys back. Mike Brasilia's back. We're talking about some of the key guys. Now, if there's some ancillary, changes, whatever, but. Mike. Pitching Butterfield's going to be back. Now is he definitely the third base. Coach. I don't know for sure, but he'll be back because they love what he did with the infield. They love what he did with the infield defense. So he's going to be back. I I assume it third base. But I don't know that for sure once you start rearranging the deck chairs, you don't know. But it's hide goes. Then you start speculating about David Ross, and you know, all sorts of fun stuff can happen there. So it's still in flux does not going to speak publicly from what I'm told until they announced those those coaching changes, which makes sense he could address them all at once. And then go from there. So I really want to hear from feel about the whole mainly Davis. I oppose same thing here. It's pretty obvious. What happened, but I kinda wanna hear it out of his mouth either. We made a mistake or whatever the case may be and what do you expect the future is a kind of picking up from seventeen and just moving for trying to go back to tell those guys. Hey, go back to who you are and go from there because I think that's what the message is going to be be who you are. And just let's be a little bit better with two strikes and a man on third things like that. So what's a file thing? I want to tell you about is the last thing I want to talk about is the playoffs. Real quick. There's great pitching in the National League. I said this all year in the division. And you're seeing it again as I was watching the pregame show last night. I mean they were talking about Walker. Bueller? Like he was sandy co for the right handed. Sandy koufax. Nobody mentioned just seen. Nobody all for those guys picked the dodgers win last night this division and the brewers especially they have. Have some great pitching. So my final thought is let's not overreact. Also ninety five win team fourth in the league and run scored granted second half terrible. But fourth overall, one sixty two tells you more about your team than anything. So I don't think you should overreact. Yes. Bringing Machado or Harper. But don't go nuts. You change the hitting coach bring a good hitter. Get these guys back to who they are. And it's not like this team completely needs an overall cap. I know we talked about it last week. So it just reminds me watching a guy like she's seen. There is good pitching in this division. You can't overreact. When you win ninety five games. Then Shiraz Raymond is leading the front office going to Texas. That's from cubs insider and Evan Albans sought. Yeah. He had a different role with the cubs this year. He was I guess it's still an assistant GM, but he wasn't in the same role. He was in strategic planning. So I think this is probably obviously a step up from there. And you know, we'll see what they do to replace him. So yes this off season is just getting going. They're not done with with internal changes. And then obviously, there's going to be personnel changes when we get closer to the GM meetings winter meetings and all that. Man have a good day. Okay. Guys, take care of fast time out and then the NBA season begins tonight some of our predictions. I'm just leaning on black because I don't know the league like that guy. Does he watches everything? My best time of the year is March is tonight. Like I like opening day. He likes tonight, I'm with him. You guys are both wrong..

"School of business. This is wanna lend Sylviane ESPN one thousand sorry. I'm not done. Has lots of work to do. So he's far from done. But it does look like the cubs. Have their new hitting coach fired chili Davis last week? Not a huge surprise, especially. When you're president says, our offense bro- broke. Let's pick it up really quick. And then we'll get back to bears with a Jesse Rogers on the news. Hi, jesse. Good afternoon, fellas. How we doing we're doing? Well. So who's the new cubs hitting coach? Anthony, I oppose is his name. Former Chicago Cubs. Minor league hitting coordinator from two thousand thirteen to two thousand fifteen I mentioned his name several times last Friday at the anniversary show. So not a surprise on this end, but it is a complete vindication. If that's the right word for John mealy, the hitting coach that was fired a year ago. This guy, basically is a not basically he is a mainly disciple. The whole launch angle fad while I oppose she's going to pick up on that after sort of chili Davis got away from it. I mean, he studied under mainly for about seven years. He joined mealy with the Marlins, then he followed me lead to the cubs mainly with a Cup for one day. People don't know this as a hitting coordinator, then went to the Astros. To be their hitting coach. That's when I oppose see took over the minor league hitting coach for the bear for the cubs. Then mainly comes back, and then I oppose he goes to the Rangers. Anyway, they've been connected for years. So to me, it's a complete vindication. We'll see what the what the the brass says. But this is the guy that's gonna lead them moving forward. I would assume in sort of a back to the future type of thing in terms of their hitting instruction and their their their program going forward. Let's go back to what we weren't fifteen sixteen and seventeen although I'm sure they're going to augment that that kind of conversation and rhetoric, but you know, chili Davis was good at one thing getting them to go the other way, but it did not produce enough runs. And at the end of the day, really quite Jesse. Is there has there been any one hundred percent confirmation that Jin Hanky will be back next year? It's the pitching coach. No there, isn't that? I I think there will be more movement on on on the coaching staff. I'm not gonna just say him. I don't know who that's going to be. We have not a high at a hundred. Percent confirmation of any one back. I've heard enough sort of rumors out there about Hickey about Zillow about even Butterfield situation. It's all up in the air. Don't have any confirmation about anybody back or anybody else that's gone feeling. They put this thing out there because it was the the chili Davis stuff was going to leak was on the verge of leaking. Anyway, sylvie. And so they they handle that one separately. But nothing else has been on the verge of leaking. That's just kind of my feeling on what went down. I keep your ear to the ground jazz. Thank you. Anthony, I oppose is the new cubs hitting coach a guy who's been in the organization before mainly with the Phillies now. This hour brought to you by hooters stop by hooters this football season to.

"Is this chili Davis hitting coach for the cubs has been relieved of his duties he has been fired by the cubs. And you think about the numbers that we talked about them earlier with this cubs team this team in forty games with one or no runs scored and forty games this season. Theo Epstein a couple of days ago talking about how he believed that the offense was broken. So in the second half, we had we had fifty games in which we scored two or more runs in our record in those games. When we got the two or more was thirty seven and thirteen. Thirty seven and thirteen when you got to two or more runs. So it was just a. The indicators in the second half where not where we want to be. We we were. Among the worst in the league at the ball out of the ballpark. Power was right that way down or walk rate was dramatically down. Or PS was down runs. Scored were down. We hit more ground balls in the second half than any other team by a huge margin. And you know, our goal is dateline drives and five balls out of the ballpark, but hit line drives. And we we hit forty nine point five or so ground ball rate in the next closest team was at forty seven percent. Yeah. So we were just something happened in our offense in the second half. Where we stop walking. We stopped hitting home runs. We stopped sitting in the ball in the air, and we stopped being productive and scoring. Not being able to get to two runs. Yeah. That many times in the second half is really unacceptable, and you know, it really it. It tells the story a little bit of the end of our season two we had those three games Saturday. Monday. And Tuesday were look if we win one of those games, we're still playing and each of those games we scored one run with a handful of heads. So that was the scene last week talking about this Chicago Cubs, and they're hitting woes as you listen to been one thousand ESPN app, we turn to Jesse Rogers who covers the cubs four ESPN dot com.

"And you know I mean if people. Don't like it and they'll say something. And. Maybe things, will change but. I just kind of chill out and you know be ready for whatever it does because it's going. To change the game changes, they talk about like Honda strike zone we I mean. We got replaced now we got some sort of shot clock going on all these things that you thought would happen and now we had. Two so I'm just going to be ready for whatever comes we always talk about the dog days of the summer in the major league baseball season. Bet that really goes on and on and on but you guys are about to embark on an August where you play like? Twenty twenty, two hundred twenty three days or twenty three hundred twenty four is it something that you guys are really aware of. Right now or is that just not. Eating anything you even think about We're aware but everything you just know man when when things happen throughout the schedule with, weather and whatnot just gotta wear it just like everybody else and I feel like our team or our coaching staff go he does. Or his ability trying to make sure. Rested. Enough could be able to. Finish all in the second half and he understands that the real thing is not all day for. Guys are playing that many, games in a row regardless and you know they got. Off their body or whatever but it is what it is and we just gotta have a good mindset on it and keep that perspective. In Angola got Jason when when we people compliment you and they say look how hard he's worked look at the year he's having right now and. Then people want to say hey how much is chili Davis helped with that you tireless worker truly never understand like how much Blame or credit a hitting, coach, so tell us yeah I don't I don't? Think helping any of the blames. Gone any coast This is The back of my, baseball card it's not, the his. You know so the end of the day it's not gonna know show up all of this guy had a bad year with remember that no bad hitting coach. You head Because I came to look at the past, two years we've we've put up a lot of. Runs throughout ABC's inner NFC three years in a row so to me that speaks volumes of success and failure for for a team wise and far what I, have, going on what I need to get out individually taught me but what I will say, about chili and Don is like they both knew coming into this year. Before I knew no matter wouldn't be returning, with us that no, I need. To get back to being myself and and not thinking too much being athletic using my hands and and getting back to the strength of what guy I mean Just like a lot of guys and any guy you, talked, about hitting this it has to go through struggles for like majority of them are going, to say I need to get back to what I was doing what. May successful Cotillard just definitely complimented that this year and I'm gonna be honest I feel, like maybe would have done the same thing but when, you talk about I. Like the best thing I I can do with Phileas just, take advantage of the fact that. He played nineteen seasons in the big leagues switch hitter he's, got a lot of input and a. Lot of things a. Lot of food for thought..

"There's definitely a change in approach that the cubs are going through right now some hitters more drastic than others cash workers really change things he's kinda changes hands he's changed his launch angle whereas he's not going for the huge launch angle that we saw a lot of the data reveal in his first couple years in the bigs kost warbirds been a better player for it fan graphs wrote a story over the weekend about kris bryant turning into a little bit more of a contact hitter and how it's not necessarily a bad thing because his own coverage and his discipline especially in the bottom of the zone has been so much better this year he hit a monster home run last night too and he actually did a segment within the game with a rod talking about launching on things like that but boston right now is experiencing just a tremendous surge in offense in the first month of the season so in within without chili davis so last year boston it's hard to do this because i'm taking a full season's worth of data for just like six weeks five or six weeks you know boston was six then runs fifteen i think what shocked everybody in home runs just one point zero four home runs per game this year their second and runs fifth in home runs and they're hitting one point three five home runs per game they're also i hope yes they were eleventh in ps last year so boston's enjoying a renaissance offensively and a lot of that has to do with mukhi bats i mean one guy the kind of months he's had can skew the numbers in a smaller data sample obviously the cubs were fifth in runs last year i'm sorry they were second and runs last year their fifth so far this year this is the big drop in the home runs in the last year the cubs were thirteen home runs with one point three eight home runs per game this year they're tenth with one point zero three home runs per game they're walk away down and they're on his way down as a result they were first on base last year eighth this year there were thirty no ps last year fourth because they're still slugging.
