"Tweets already buster bleacher tweets for a Tuesday, Andrew Campbell at real camp drew rights and hey buster, putting aside the trash cans and buzzers. Do you think that the Astros continued success in October gives life to the tanking strategy, not every team has deep pockets like the Yankees or Dodgers, and it still seems easier to tank than do whatever the rays are doing over there. Yeah, Andrew I've said on the podcast many times, look under the current rules, tanking is a, I mean, it's a strategy that absolutely has been demonstrated to work. You can do it. And if you're an owner of a team, you win either way. If you tank and get first round picks or top picks, like the asters have maybe you win a World Series. And if you tank and you don't win and you don't get those picks, guess what? You still win because you make a crap load of money. Taylor, I'm curious, just wanted to follow up. You see what I'm saying about what Chris Bassett said, okay, Chris Bassett has his perspective. I'm not saying he's wrong. I don't know what's right and what's wrong, but for every Chris Bassett there is, we've had dozens of major leaguers who've come out and said the other way, would they feel like what the answers did was above and beyond. Forget the media. Forget what idiots like me think. It's pretty clear that there are a lot of players. It felt like the asteroids were wrong. Yeah, and I feel like this is some revisionist history on his part to try and cover himself a little bit and be like, hey, I wasn't. I didn't rat my teammates out. Everyone was doing it. Not that I think he's a rat or anything, but I think that yeah, just a little bit of coverage on his part. I think I lean into your camp because you're right. We had the superstars of the game coming out and admonishing in the clearest possible terms of what the Astros did. Yeah, not one or two or three or ten,.

"Had seen them launching balls for most of the postseason and then the same thing with Garcia being able to have the he had extra villa that day that the last game that he threw. So he had a little extra something behind it. It seemed like he made an adjustment with his knees that was hurt. In the last start, credit to Brent strom being able to help him make that adjustment to be able to use his legs better, but I look at what they were able to do and pitching is just as contagious as hitting. So you look at the guys in the bullpen and the other starter saying, okay, this is what those guys have done to make an adjustment. We're gonna have to do the same thing, take it into the next series and facing the braves, which is a great lineup itself. I asked him perching yesterday to give me a comp for your Don Alvarez because I said to him, I said, you know, just with that approach he had against Chris sale the way he took the ball the opposite way. He said, you know, he's very kind of like Freddie Freeman like and then all fields approach. Tim thought more, David Ortiz, Willie mccovey. For you, who does he remind you of? Yeah, my dad showed me a lot of Willie mccovey was one of his favorite players. So I have to agree with the Willie mccovey because of the height right, but then also the ability to go the other way extremely well and just take his base hits. But when a pitcher makes a mistake, he knows how to make you pay. And the guy is extremely patient. We don't normally see power hitters. That patient at the plate. So to be able to see that has been extremely impressive. And then also the clutch hit. That's another aspect of what he's been able to do. All right, there's so many great storylines in this World Series. Tell me what's your favorite is among the Snickers. You've got the dad and his son hitting coach the Astros. You've got Freddie Freeman in a World Series for the first time in his long career. You got Charlie Morton pitching in this series. You've got the Astros players. Clearly, although yesterday they were talking about, no, we're only focused on winning four games. We're not worried about trying to reestablish our legacy. We know that that's got to be in the back of their minds. You've got dusty baker. What's a favorite storyline for you in this World Series? I think a favorite storyline for me in this World Series is two things. The fact that the Houston Astros kind of have a chance to show everybody okay, this isn't going to be attained World Series. This isn't going to be attained opportunity for us to win. We're going to show you that we can do it with quote unquote without cheating and without an advantage. So I think there's one aspect that I'm excited to see there and another being the fact that Atlanta gets the chance to be on a big stage right now. I think about the All-Star Game and how it was supposed to be in Atlanta. We were supposed to have that week there to honor Hank Aaron, but we didn't have that because it moved to Denver. So I think of now the city gets to have that stage right now an amazing opportunity for them to highlight whatever they want to highlight if they can highlight Hank Aaron, some of their past players, whatever it may be, but just having this city get an opportunity to be on a stage at the highest realm of baseball right now. I think that's a great, as far as a little substitution that we can do for the All-Star Game. What's your perception of why players respond so strongly to dusty baker? I think the fact that dusty, he's been in this game for a long period of time, right? He's done it for so long. He's been able to really navigate the ins and outs of baseball, but at the same time he hasn't gotten his goal of winning a World Series. So I think that's like the focus of knowing, okay, if I play for a guy like this, he's still motivated by so much. And the way he's able to relate to young players and older players better in players. He's done a great job of navigating that. And that was something that he was always getting a knock for. It's not being able to relate to the younger players. So I think he's proven people wrong in that sense. But then also proven, okay, I know how to deal with the new school of analytics, but then also deal with my own thought and knowing how to make moves in the middle of the game. Yep, having a feel for players for sure. I want to ask you about this. Chris Bassett, of course, all star pitcher for the Oakland athletics. It was on the Chris rose show the other day, and he was talking about the science scheme stealing scandal and according to Chris Bassett, this was an issue much broader than what has been portrayed. Give a listen. Well, no, I just think it was a point in the sport where the entire sport knew what was going on. So it was like, well, Houston's doing this, so we got to do this to try to keep up with them. And instead of someone stepping up, and I don't mean a player instead of the MLB or whoever it may be, they knew what was going on and said, no one stepped up. Everyone let it happen and unfortunately it escalated into something so big that John boy and tricking the Internet had to basically tattle on all the people and be like, they literally basically had to shove the proof in the MLB's face before they did anything, which is always it's always the case with the MLB. The MLB never is ahead of a story. They're always chasing the story behind and trying to cover up everything with the steroids. And that's how it's always been unfortunately. Now, it's interesting. I wrote a column back in 2017 when the Red Sox and Yankee said their Apple watch situation saying that rob Manfred needed to step up and lay down the law and make it very clear. Look, if you use electronics to steal science, then you're going to be in jeopardy being kicked out of the sport. And I've always thought that that was a mistake. The rob made and I agree with Chris Bassett on this, but it's very interesting because he sort of cast it as this being a sport wide issue. And what I would say to Chris, I'd love to have him in a room with all the players. All of your guys peers who came out in the spring of 2020 after the suspensions were rendered and criticized the Astros and said, look, what they did was above and beyond. Look, it was Clayton Kershaw, CC bathia, Mike Trout, players who weren't even involved in this, who weren't playing against the Astros in big games. So many people came out and criticized them. So, you know, I'm getting mentions on Twitter where you get Astros fans say, hey, what about this? Chris Bassett said this was that this was something that every team did..

"Every friday morning subscribed to total. Sf wherever you. Listen to podcasts. I'm really against the idea that moebius floated about moving the mount bath and it changes the nature of the game for me. But i do. I do get concerned. Now when we see the exit philosophies The game now between the maple bats and how hard pitchers throw you know you can see velocities off the bat sometimes over one hundred ten miles an hour. Chris bassett is a great fielding pitcher he could not get his glove up at times and it was. I mean that was one hundred miles an hour with the bat and he tried. I mean you could see like both hands went up yet and it just snuck through the two hands and cut him around the face and it's yeah there was just nothing you can do. So yeah it was. It was extremely scary and he was down for a long time and it was super quiet in that stadium. Obviously a we couldn't i. It was really hard to tell him. You could see the you know. The the towel that they were holding to his face was bloody but you couldn't see the extent of the injuries. Because they kept the towel over his face and he had his hands to his face the whole time. Really the scariest thing. 'cause you know you see. It happened in the moment. And he goes down and you're not really sure what's going on there. But it's really reactions at teammates. Sean murphy was the first guy to reach.

"You're bored not actually not. I think this will give us a nice discount like last year. He pitched the cy young level but we knew that he's never seen them. Maybe that kind of work before. The dodgers always treated him with kid gloves and he threw a ton of slider so there were there worries but i was actually invested this year because i thought where he was going it was possibly worth it He has this. He has a reputation for being so injury. Prominent six years. He's only been on the i l. four times in hasn't even been lengthy for any of them. None of them have been arm injuries. Obviously this is an arm injury. So we're gonna want to know more information with how serious this is. Rocco daily said that it looks like it could be a lengthy thing. The twins have you know are not competing so he probably won't be back so Cheating answer is i need to know more and see how serious this is. Because i don't think he. I am still going to keep them on my board if this isn't too bad because i think some people in their mind have him of as just horribly. You know unhealthy pitcher were in reality. He's never actually had arm trouble before. So i just i need to know more but i think i'm not as worried as like maybe the ash person jason. What about your your you worried about this short term long term. i'm with matt. You gotta get some more data to see where things are they gonna shut them down for. The rest of the other reason did let him go out. This look at this. This has been the same thing. At least the mets are still trying to hold onto some playoff hopes with degrom and similar injury. That's now had out now. What six weeks. And we don't know and he may not pitch again. The season amis nine team has just died on the vine that was in first place. Losing kershaw and degrom is just. I'm so depressed but anyhow getting back to my you know when we look at it though. It's this'll be three times in five. Seasons year has been over four and said his high water mark for his workload was his rookie season here on the state side but since then one thirty four one twenty five hundred fifty. Four one six now This year And discounting last year. Even if you were to extrapolate what he could have done last year it would have been about one fifty five one sixty so once one fifty five hundred. Sixty is a new one eighty. The way baseball is played right now. But we're still talking about a guy who's got a era over four in three of the last five seasons with it and so he he's a number one on that team but in reality he has like a sp low s. p. three in my book and not somebody i want to even the news where it come out good on this not somebody that i want to go out there and be like always low. Sp to now. Do you think he'll drop to like like we're frankie. Montage issue is going this year. Do you think he'll go to that area the driver. That's where i'd be interested. But do you think that he his name. Do you think he'll still get pushed up higher than that. Assuming everything is like okay issues that you think you'll be you think you'll be drafted a lot earlier. Lower on thoughts coming into the season. People were still up there on him coming into the season even though he hit shown the volatility. It gets back to something. We'll talk about a little bit later. Where some people have a like the pitching ninja tax. Or you see video. Like oh my god. Look at the potential of this this pitch. This could be amazing right. F in a in a vacuum guys could look awesome but on a whole there are there are awards. There have to be over comment with montage. Splitter was incredible and it was spun. if you're on the front end of that montage train but you go back and look at some of the preseason data where he was going He was a top sixty pitcher. He went as high as one on one. Eighty p of one sixty four during draft season And you look at your try to look back at where some of the other names of the thing is the way kitchen is falling. Apart this year i'm scrolling down the list. Trying to look for guys you may have missed out on because you chase montas and quite frankly. He didn't miss out on much. I mean there's so many other these are he's he's out he's hurt he's done on the didn't so at the end of the day it was kind of like he was appropriately placed based on where he's being drafted only because so much behind them. Except maybe i tyler molly. That's one guy who has outperformed montage. But he was the next guy on the list. It's not like you missed out on much or that guy tiny epic you pronounce his last name. He went one round after after. Frankie mom i think that's the only reason i picked montage level the draft because right after the patrick corbin area where i figure it's one of these like where people take these name guys that had helium at some point and they'll bunch up together in the middle before people start taking sleepers and start taking shots on these guys that's kind of. Why identified that area. Well there's chris bassett Chris bassett's Thirty picks after that was a that was a miss. If you took the upside like vat you watch the two guys pitch like getting montage. He throws harder. He's got the great splitter. I'll take them all day long over bassett and that's why there was the basset hound group this year. As or like okay fine bulldogs take guys sitting down there. That's been pitching well since. August of two thousand nineteen and unfortunately until his last outing Has been really good. This year was like it was Wasn't like he wasn't good in his last outing. You just didn't get a chance to finish it. He's doing good in his recovery. I mean huge. Bummer for inefficiencies. In that way a mobile he can make it back at some point for the playoffs. But he's probably i. yeah. I'm with you guys on around with madame made. I think he's gonna come at a a a nice little discount coming into two thousand twenty two if he's going outside of that top one fifty one seventy five area I'll be getting lots lots of shares the guy. I don't think by any stretch that he is done. I mean obviously with wait for the. Va injury news to clearing. If he doesn't again this season That could make him extremely cheap coming into next season because people would see the bad performance but also have had been injured a this season so all right Let's let's move on to the next set of news upfront francisco lynn door and havi bias or returning from the i l. This is special for matt. is a mets fan. How excited you about these returning. What can we expect from wrestled away. And what are you thinking about for them in terms of their value for next season as far as rest of the way. I don't know. I mean. Linda were really started to kind of pick it up. But this you know this derailed all possible momentum and with him coming off an oblique and the mets by the time he comes back..

Night Football. which is always Obviously. It gets the attention of the nation. But I was the first time ever the NFL on a professional game in Las Vegas with the home team calling itself. Off Vegas. I picked my raiders semi raiders have been a fan, my whole life and. Continue to be. To lose but they actually. I can't remember the last time I can say that the raiders outcoached good coach I thought that. Sean Payton. Was a little bit outcoached at certain times, which is weird to think about. Drew brees I counted five drops from his receivers. But the raiders have a couple of guys. Who are excellent on their offense? One of them is Josh Jacobs I I can't remember. Anyone since Marcus Allen who really runs the ball that hard and gained so much positive yardage for guy who's really not that big. So He's a star and then waller who we found out last year was A. Star tight end as well. And in a league where they're much more. High Profile. Tight ends deservedly like Travis Calcio George Kendall. and. There are guys that make tons of money like Austin Hooper. That if you look at their and waller and what he's been able to do the last year or two games I, mean he really? is fantastic. And so the raiders won that game and they are now To Anno- for the first time since I don't know a long time. And the the New Orleans Saints. This is the thing for me. I need to see the stuff with my own eyes unless I have some sort of inside information. And I had no. Inside information to say that the. Saints were now not as good as the raiders. On the night you never know what's going to happen but it's sort of like people ask me Rick why didn't you pick the as to win the division which they congratulations my Oakland is one the American league. It's because Houston had dominated for so many years that it wasn't enough for me to say, well, you know they had. Garbage can gate. So now they're going to have to They're gonNA have to take a step back like now. Still. MANIACI and fires a couple youngsters like this SORTA UNPACK and ended up not even pitching. And it was still Hendrix as A. Closer I think it's hilarious. There's an article and as beat writer saying that. Maybe, Hendrix should be considered for the CY young and the MVP is one blown save on opening night. Out. Like he's getting to the CY young over Shane Bieber. I mean it's just first of all. I'm not against closers getting the. Cy. Young. But YOU'RE GONNA have to give me fifty. Even a sixty games schedule. and. That's only if that every starter stinks like the best starter in the League has a four twenty six. And maybe I would do it. But I'll get back to the raider game. In the second let's go to Chris who is out in Oakland what's going on Chris? Hey. Rick, thanks for taking my call. Man Show is always good morning. What's up buddy nothing? Hey, just you know I know you're talking to the raiders and just how many of these Oakland guys just can't watch it man just didn't watch yesterday and watched one play NFL. You know that's the election I guess most of my friends are sticking with the raiders are just watching it but anyway depressing but a reason I, called was You know we do have one team that is from Oakland that's in the playoffs and I wanted to get your take on who you think the A lot. On the other show that people talk about you know through the star is going to be but I don't know. Do you need Bass it's GonNa Start, and Who You? Guys would start. In the in the I I. Yeah I mean I think they're probably it depends. Of course, how it all shakes out the the good news for the as is that they have. A chance now to get the rotation like they like it. The pitcher with lowest era as you just mentioned of courses Chris Bassett, but he always seems to get a little bit of a Shirk you know like He. He'll probably he's probably expecting to get moved to the bullpen for the playoffs. It just seems like they do that which is. In placer miners not going to start Lusa while miners nightmare to me I just had that complete game. But I think that guy's you shouldn't even be in the big but I would imagine this Sarajevo and montages are in the mix with Maniaci and fires and bombing listen they're all there. But Yeah I think MANIACI is not going to get the love. Because of. I don't know it's weird because of course, he started the wildcard. Game. but I mean Bass citizen pitching too well. To to ignore, but I think they would probably..

"Club because I am Susan Waldman along with one of the radio voices of the Oakland is that is our friend his Petronio and I've been talking to your manager and we're talking about how this team always kind of picks up steam as the trading deadline is figured out and you figure out how the bottom of the roster gets taken off and how to improve she is this year any different than last year last year you had a greater bullpen not as much starting pitching this year it looks like the opposite I think that's true and I think when you look at the eighties names in the rotation Mike fires and Brett Anderson Homer Bailey in terror or Chris Bassett they don't if you're not inside these clubhouse you don't necessarily know those names but they could do to perform well we saw that last night with Brad his first win against the Yankees the bullpen has been inconsistent the one thing that's been a constant been great defense especially in the corners of first and third market segments about sending sure stop there waiting for remote Laurie I don't get back in center I think that's the main path days of taken you know let's let's talk a little bit about the defense because I remember the day that Ron Washington was riding to work with Marcus and me and and I I really got to give this guy credit I mean he let him break it down and start again and he's really turned into a for me a short stop didn't even know which glove two years didn't know how to use for his feet or nooses hands basically from day one he went to work and that's the great thing about Marcus he has this might set in this work ethic that it's it's really second to none and he was out there literally every day working on getting better and we see you know what has happened the kid that committed thirty five errors to the kid that's the gold glove finalist last year is the same kids same temperament and the places got incredible he is an MVP type Canada for the S. know what's amazing is that you know he when he played baseball school and then he was with another team before I came to you how do you get to this level and be that kind of defense of liability wise I think people look at him initially and I think people when he was acquired by the ETS as a utility type player athletic player that could play all the positions when he played against the age of the white Sox in three games you played second short and third and that's what I think a lot of people thought even maybe put him out of left field getting away from the infield because of always getting in trouble too close to the action obviously all those things have changed okay Homer Bailey you talk about the names the Yankees know who they are hi Janna Roarke and Brett Anderson last night to look spectacular the difference between Homer Bailey I know is that split but what else has he done this year that's turned him into a picture not just to throw out what women really see a whole lot of them so it's kind of hard for us to understand who the Homer Bailey was day in and day out all those years with Cincinnati beginning of the season with Kansas city but I think you get into this club house there's a secret sauce not afraid of contact because the defense like you mention this but is a very important to him it's fast ball ninety three ninety five so it's definitely plays he said too bad starts for the years one in Chicago directly and one against the Astros in Houston aside from that he's been pretty solid that's what these are hoping for today been so great to see you have a good Saturday night New York on actually do that thank you Susan we'll be right back with more of the Nissan pregame show on the WFAN Yankees radio network your.

as a player and came up with a nice light up so I started off at ten thirty we have Matt Williams coming on board with us of course one of the big players with the giants had a great career with the giants now is the third base coach with the Oakland a's been there a couple years and then we have Rick Rodriguez and Rick Rodriguez you say was Rick Rodriguez really touched a little bit what the

friend of bald fight and I we speak to him very much throughout the years a hitting coach with the Mets and he kind of took a swing and said quit trying to hit home runs a loop the ball I want to use your hands and make contact and sure enough he's right in that second hole and he's doing real well hidden over three hundred for the mat so that second life we always talk about and yeah panic doing real well and a change of scenery is sometimes the best thing that can happen to a professional player I think so too and I think that is a key point when players do leave you the thing Kay I'm

play second base we got there could know us right right and then a Robinson Cano blew out his hamstring like the day after the giants carpet and Joe really so I mean even even on the New York Post I

Felix Hernandez of Seattle Mariners to bullpen amid struggles

"Team that I'm just fascinated by right now as Seattle Mariners. They began a huge series of for them against the Astros on Thursday night. That's a weekend series for game set, and but coming into that, they had lost seven of their last nine Felix Hernandez is kind of pitching his way out of the rotation, which is such a bummer. 'cause they're finally kind of in the mix for Tober essentially, and he's just not really a productive part of that at all. What do you make the Mariners here moving forward? They'll get Robertson Cano back soon. But boy, they gotta start kicking into gear here because the as just blown right by them. Well, if the as wins keep winning every night the, they don't have to worry about it. But. We're gonna find out soon. I would think they play the Astros seven times in the next fourteen days six times than thirteen days they they have sixteen game stretch. Now they've just started against Astros as the dodgers Diamondbacks. So you find out the pitching has just not been good, James Paxton back from the DL that gives them that gives them a chance to win every night. But like you said, king Felix is just not the game Felix of all Mark Marco Gonzalez been roughed up a couple of time. Bottom line is pitching terrible in even if canot comes back and just hits the ground running, that'll help them. Certainly that'll help them. But you know, you're look at that Oakland rotation. If you just match them up side by side, the names you'd say probably a rub, but Brad Anderson's been fabulous. Chris Bassett's been good for the as in Jackson's, found new life. So right now it looks like Oakland's going to the playoffs in Seattle's, not, but you know, it's all right there in front of. Them and I'm sure that's what's got service in staff is preaching
