"don alvarez" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Made the playoffs in four of the last 6 seasons, and they haven't had a losing record in a full season since 2016. But last season was tumultuous, with Milwaukee and first place in midseason, the brewers traded closer Josh hader, a very unpopular move among the other players. The brewers played under 500 the rest of the season and closed with an 86 and 76 record just missing the playoffs. David stern stepped down as head of baseball operations and was replaced by Matt Arnold. Newcomers. Milwaukee traded for William Contreras, a good hitting catcher who the brewers believe can improve on defense. In Milwaukee's had a lot of success in helping catchers become better framers. The brewer signed wade Miley for rotation depth and former Marlin Brian Anderson for lineup help. The X Factor the brewers operate in a small market with a modest payroll. And so their front office is constantly trying to balance the effort to contend with managing asset value, which is why they traded hater right in the middle of the pennant race last year. This season, the brewers may face similar decisions with Corbin burns, who has a two point 6 two ERA over the last three seasons, and shortstop Willie Adams. Both will be eligible for free agency after the 2024 season. And if the brewers want to get maximum value for either player, the peak time to deal them might be in July of 2023. The brewers demonstrated with the hater deal, they will be aggressive. Fault lines. The brewers will have strong pitching, presumably, with burns, Brandon Woodruff, Freddie Peralta and Devin Williams leading their pitching staff. The off season roster turnover might have the greatest impact on the run production and defense. Hunter Renfro, cold and Wong were dealt away during the winter in the brewers will need Contreras and Anderson to pitch in with the offense right away. The baseball tonight podcast wind projection. Forecast is for the brewers to win 87.2 games. Hambo says 84. I think ambo is right. I've got 84 with some mid season sell offs. Burns in a domus might be two of the most coveted players at the deadline. Jumping into the numbers. This is him Bo knows on baseball tonight. Paul McKinney's researcher at ESPN, a content guru for get up. The voice and my Greenberg's ear, the co author of the new book, got your number and on this show him, we always have to call you the forgotten one. How are you? I am so great. I am the I am the unsung, right? I'm the unmarked grave on the baseball tonight podcast, but I am a relish in my role in responsibility on the show, and even so I keep coming back every single week for more. All right, well, and that's your title from now on. You're the forgotten one. We're not going to worry about job titles or anything like that. And they tell you right now, you and I are about an hour and a half away from a radio appearance, and I am going to completely obliterate my Greenberg in this exchange that we're going to have coming up. I'm just going to give you a preview ahead of time, okay? Okay, well, that's great. Just so you know, he has a really, really good and expensive lawyer. Whatever you say. For me, right now that I'm like, it sets off some PSD. That's for sure. Or PTSD. Right. Let's go through three numbers of playing that you are playing before the opening day bell. Yes, I'm going to start with the Dodgers. I'm going to play the over 94 and a half wins buster. It is my belief that reports of their demise have been greatly exaggerated. Might they miss Trey Turner? Of course. As the Padres made up considerable ground in the division with a full year of Juan Soto and Xander Bogart, of course, for sure. Let's keep in mind the baseline here last year was a 111 wins with their run differential of a 115 win team. They were even better than their record. Over the last three years, their ERA plus one 51 40 and one 46 buster. Those are the three best individual team seasons. Over the last 100 years. All three in a row. They have figured out their pitching. They have got it down to a science. My second. This one's going to be a player prop. I've got your Don Alvarez at 9 to one. The lead to major leagues in RBI. I nerded out here a little bit much to your surprise, I'm sure. I looked at every active player, I took their career RBI totals and I calculated their 162 game averages. Number three on that list is Fernando tatis. Number two is Pete Alonso. And number one at a 124 RBI per 162 games is your Don Alvarez. That's a stacked lineup. There aren't really any good lefties in that division to contend with.
"don alvarez" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Name even mentioned brain. Podcasts like that's part of the reason why we do the major leaguers second says. Yeah like they're guys who just don't get mentioned but those are often not prominent players. Who maybe even aren't having a good year and they're just very but like i don't know if you set a cutoff of like three war or two wars something like an average year. Maybe like four words. Maybe like a all-star type season like what percentage of players do we cover at some point and in the past that the end of the year. We've done an episode or two where we just kind of go team by team and talk about something that we missed with that season and readers will submit story lines or season's just weird wacky things that happened that we didn't touch on in the podcast and obviously a lot of our listeners. Don't listen to every single episode of effectively wild for shame but they may not know if we have mentioned a certain player at some point. But that was the idea. Basically 'cause you know just like as. I'm looking at leaderboards occasionally. I will see someone who i just did. Not know was having a good year or didn't know us have that good a year and i figured we could single some of those guys out see. I felt confident that i understood the exercise. And then one of the guys. I put on my list was literally salvador perez for like ten minutes. So we'll see if we hadn't really before that. So i can still pick 'em can't i can't tie sure that would be a good example because i mean he's probably come up at some point i talked about the homerun derby a little bit. But we hadn't dwelt on him downlink dwellers to up on all right. I don't know do you wanna go. I should i just take salvador. Yes i mean. I guess we don't have much more to say about. I don't wanna you go. I i i want to calibrate. 'cause there are two things that are going to happen here. One of two there. We have one of two pass ahead of us or at least ahead of me so i did a little prep for this. Obviously because you can't just sit there on the leaderboard melia that guy. Although i mean i might so i did some prep. I was like. I have my list. I have a list here. And we're gonna do one of two things. You're going to say your first pick and i'm gonna feel really good about my list or you're gonna say your first pick and i'm going to have to go off board and we'll see which we get say. I think probably the level of fame and name awareness of our players will vary from pick pick some of my picks like they're fairly prominent players but just had sort of escaped my notice or we haven't talked for whatever reason so some people will be like. Yeah of course that guy. Seven to good and others will be like. I've never heard of that guy. Hopefully we'll find the happy medium here. I don't think i picked any all-stars. I kind of forget who was an all star. Who wasn't worried. I don't. I'm not a reliable memory bank for that. Sorry okay well. My first pick is is kind of a cheat. Actually because it's more of a position than a single player. It's like a group of guys who have collectively played a position on a team and have done pretty well. Okay and most my picks here will probably be on not as great teams just because we tend to talk about the teams more so it's more likely to have overlooked players not so good teams but this actually is a very good team. Astros center fielders. Okay astros center. Fielders has been very productive this year and that came as a surprise to me because coming into this year i think that was seen as sort of their weak spot. Maybe even their colegio. Because george springer left and they didn't really replace him with anyone prominent they just kind of kept mile straw around and there was a lot of doubt about whether i'll straw could hit in the major leagues. And then they traded miles trot at midseason but both straw and the players through have replaced him or split time with him. They've all been good and astor center. Fielders as a unit have produced three point. Nine were this year which actually ranks fourth among all centerfield units in. Mlb this year. And you know you could look at the top of that list and cedric. Mullets is at the top. The orioles have had the most productive center fielders. The sheer didn't see that coming but we have talked about cedric. Marlins maybe not enough this year but he has come up but the astros center fielders mile straw. Chaz mccormick shake myers. They heard the three guys who have produced almost all of that playing time. And they've all been good and that surprises me. Mouse draw was expected to be good at defense and he was very good at defense and he's been like a three one player this year and he has hit even better since they traded him to cleveland at the deadline and i was sort of surprised that they traded him to cleveland. Because it's like who's going to replace him well. Apparently chaz mccormick and jake myers and they have both been really good this year. Chess mccormick has a wealth. Only a one zero seven. Opiates plus but you know with the said defense and and base running in all of that and so he has of like you know more than a a wins worth of value in two hundred fifty. Five plate appearances. And then jake myers. He has been good to. He has won twenty. Opiates plus about one hundred plate appearances and those guys combined have. I mean they've outperformed. George springer has not been. It's been ursus. yeah right. So it's weird how that works out. And they've also got four games from cal tucker in centerfield and i don't want to steal one of your picks of cal tucker was going to be one of your picks but i thought about making kyle tucker a pick of mine before i came up with this unit of center fielders. 'cause kentucky's been great and he has actually been the astros best hitter this year. It has not been bregman or Or even korea or your don alvarez or anyone it's been cal tucker and he has mostly played right field but he has been graydon. And i didn't really recognize how great he has been with. Like a one forty nine debussy. Plus that lineup is not a young lineup. But he's twenty. Four alvarez is twenty four like they're two of the younger members there and he has totally blossomed and he was obviously a top prospect but there was some doubt about him because his initial call up did not go well at all and then it seemed like maybe they weren't fully trusting him with the starting job a few years ago but he is turned around and turned into the type of player that they hoped he would be okay. I think that's a good pick on. Its own and it also makes me feel better about the i compiled so it's a really excellent. I'm going to take with my first. Pick omar narvaez. Yeah 'cause you know we've been having a good little year so you know he. He doesn't show up if you're looking at the graphs leaderboard spycatcher. He's not gonna show up on qualified. Lists only has three hundred ninety one plate appearances. So he's below the qualified threshold but he's he has also three and a half one season going for him he has a one thirteen. Wrc plus. but i think the most. I continue to be fascinated by guys like omar narvaez who granted like. I'm sure there's a little bit of noise in the data but who have like really wild swings between times in their careers were they have been just atrociously bad pitch framers and then times the in our crews were..

Where of course the commodores and they have to get through their super-regional but very likely with kumar rocker. Jack ladder end up in omaha. We'll see i have Texas tech to start things off against stanford and we're looking forward to that because this is as the future of major league baseball and these guys will someday participate in home. Run derbies and they're being judged on spin rates and all that stuff right now. Well you know it's fun for me when vanderbilt flakes. That's the one place they in the minnesota. Vikings are console to set aside. The you know the neutral reporter activity do i was doing a vanderbilt game and going what what was up for that. Call i apologize. I'm waiting for that. Very nice head. Sara langton podcast. Yesterday we talked about our great for the home. Run derby you are the host of the derby coverage So i want you to take a shot at this bleacher tweet To start with this. From jacob sarah via who basically chastised yesterday after he gave the great eight that i have for the derby. Because i didn't have your don alvarez in my group so karl i want you to chime in here. Here's the eighth that i came up with number one. Pete alonso defending champion guide. Love's the event is made clear that he'll do the event as long as anybody invites him. You absolutely have to have him there. Shohei ohtani although. I fully acknowledged sarah trade with me that we don't think that You know tiny necessarily would do that. You know maybe the angels and say look you might back off but we love for him to be there. Fernando tatis junior Would it would be so much fun to have them. In the event ladimir guerrero junior one of the Main front runners at this point for the america league. mvp award ronald a kuni. Junior wants soda of the washington nationals. because i didn't put jesse winker in a a twitter poll earlier this week got reds fans all over me. So i'm putting jesse winker and my age just so i can get past cincinnati at some point in my number. Eight was ryan mcmahon the events in colorado. And i'd love to see iraqi in the event. And if you want you know. Pick that apart. Yeah i think. I'd love all juniors so i would bad fernando tatis junior and i would like to see for the sake of colorado as you said Nolan auto in it. I think that would be a a wonderful twist given. Obviously he's no longer there but I'd love to see him join. so i i would. I would add those to to go with alonzo. who's gutted. Defend vlad has to be in it So i think i think i would. I'd like to get those to win and look I do agree with otani in both cases He he he he needs to be in it and be. He won't be in it because he pitches now see just d. aged play the field wasn't a pitcher but the beauty and the reason we want otani in it is because he is a pitcher so Yeah i he he would probably be at the top of my list of of wants but i understand but i doubt that that's who the event needs. You know trump's not doing it because he's hurt you could always you'd always love to have a stanton or judge just giving colorado and how far the ball will travel. But i love your list. I want the juniors in it. i want fernando. I want glad. I want ronald. I agree with you on soda. I think soda would put a show on you know. I think he would be he would be sort of a guy that that a embraces it. But there's so much more than just watching him in homers. He would be a sideshow with his with his dancing with his antics. Which is intensity. So i would. Just i would add. I'd had fernando texas junior. And then i'd love to see nolan aaron auto do it. I love your idea of our nato. In fact i think if you had that group of seven if you had alonso otani tattoos junior junior kuni. Junior soto in nolan are not. Oh that would be as as as exciting field as we've ever seen for me. you know. I think you know doing this. You know ten fifteen years or whatever Doing the home run derby. That would be awesome. Yeah lewis on it. Well what do you think about your don alvarez Yeah you know to me your alvarez. I i i had this conversation with Somebody i think about the nba dunk competition and the home run derby and to me you know when we were growing up in order for the slam dunk competition to be great Dr j. needed to at dominique wilkins spud webb needed. To begin with. And then it kind changed and you recognize. Well y- because anybody can dunk and in the home run derby for the most part anybody hit home runs. Your don alvarez is unbelievable hitter but don alvarez to me falls into a category You know joey gallo of rafael devers. There's just a lot of guys can do. What alvarez does now. If i'm astro fan it's like the all star game. I wanna see my guy in it. I understand Look you could astro guy last year. Criticizing george springer. It would've made sense to me. You know the the guys that we named separate themselves because of their personality because of their flair because of their Size because of how far they hit the ball alvarez the boxes but he checks the same boxes to me a lot of other guys do the unique part of of the otani and the juniors separate him. But if you're don alvarez unit we don't lose. I can tell you that we win if he's willing to do it. We're great with him because he'll hit some blasts in colorado and he's part of a really impressive houston offense. They blew their lead against the red sox last night. But they They effectively demonstrate. I think in that series it right now that the better team than the red sox along the way alex. Cora said that they've got the best offense in baseball there. Number one runs through three hundred thirty six. They have the lowest strikeout rate at twenty one point eight percent their number one in waited runs created plus. And carl not close there at a one twenty one with a you know the mid mid line being one hundred the white sox are second at one twelve so a huge gap between the astros and white sox first and second degree with alex said right now. The astros had the best offense of baseball. I think the astros buster said this. Two weeks ago on baseball tonight sending out content they will be ranked number one of the power rankings within the next two weeks. I i think there is good a team. Yeah i do. I think there as good a team and this was we did the astros when valez came back or td was pitching great. You realize like my god. These guys haven't been there Brantley was out. Alvarez was hurt yeah. I think. I think they're a. I think there is competitive. A team in the american league as there is. And i do think at one point they'll be atop the power rankings. The other category the astros lead baseball in is foul balls You don't strike them out they are. They are exactly what the red sox when they were. Winning world series were They grind every at bat their athletic enough they can steal basis at the bottom. They have speed They can pitch. You know you know. The i i and they go out and get a bullpen piece. Yeah i think they're i think they could absolutely Represent the american league in the world series on all in all in on the astros. Since it occurred to me when you really do a little deeper look into them bay. How banged up..
