"eric hosmer" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"The thing with Yelich is that he is hitting the ball very hard. He is in the 98th percentile in hard hit rate right now. So he's hitting the ball even harder than ballinger is and he's up there in average exit philosophy he's up there and max exit velocities up there in barrel rate and he is still pretty selective too. I mean, he doesn't strike out a whole lot. I guess he's striking out more, but he doesn't chase much and he still walks a lot. So I don't know like with him you would think that if it were injuries if it were the back that would manifest itself in him not hitting the ball hard but instead he seems to have gone back to his old morrowind's self with more strikeouts where he's just hitting the ball on the ground a lot and so his average launch angle is higher than it was last year, let's say, but he still hitting more than half of his batted balls on the ground and it's just hard to be an elite power hitter when you were doing that and he seemed to have corrected that. I mean, when he peaked and when he was MVP and nearly back to back MVP, it seemed that he had figured out how to hit the ball in the air a bit more often. And that's the part that confuses me, I guess, is that I could see if he just were not hitting the ball hard anymore because of physical ailments, but why would you continue to hit the ball hard and yet sort of unlearn what you've learned when it comes to not pounding the ball into the ground constantly, yandy Diaz style. So I guess that could be injury related to maybe like the knee or the back or whatever has restricted his mobility in some way that makes it hard for him to get that loft on his swing, but it's like, I guess it's a sign of optimism that he is still crushing the ball because if you could just redirect it, then he'd be all set. But that was something he struggled to do for years and years before he finally broke through and put it together for a year or two. Right, it's like, do we have the most confidence in guys ability to change? Like, which of the things is harder? And I would imagine hitting the ball hard in the first place as a harder thing to do than starting to hit it at a more optimal angle, particularly when you have hit it at an optimal angle before. So it's not as if there's no precedent for that being a component of your swing. It is just a very strange, it's a very strange thing. Like he's hitting it hard enough that I would imagine that even with the increased drag on the ball, it should be going. It will go over the fence more if it were just up in the air more than it is now. And his expected weighted on base is three 40 right now, his actual weighted on base is two 84, but three 40 as an expected rate on base. I mean, that's what it was last year too. And that is not what it was when he was 2018, 2019 when it was like a almost a hundred points higher than that. So yes, he has underperformed his bad at ball quality thus far, but his batted ball quality thus far is like a little bit above average, not superstar. Yeah, if I were a baseball player, I mean, I know that all ballplayers have to contend with this because even the guys you are incredible as they age do eventually see skill decline, like that just happens. That's part of being a human being whose body only moves in one temporal direction, right? But I'm just like too anxious of a person to be a pro ball player. I think is what we keep we keep coming to when we have these conversations, but the idea of a skill that you have previously demonstrated an ability to not only execute on, but to execute on to an MVP degree, right? It's not like he, you know, he did it okay. Like he was an MVP, you know? He was like, he was Christian Yelich, and we were like, wow, cool, yeah. And the idea that it can just leave you, potentially. I would think about it every day, and it would absolutely be to my detriment if it were me at the plate. So I hope you don't listen to the podcast Christian, I guess, is what I'm trying to say, because that feels like an intrusive thought. Yeah, well, sometimes players will have a breakthrough mechanically and then they will revert. And it's weird because you would think that, well, if they figured out how to play at that level, whether it's throwing a pitch a certain way or developing a new pitch or changing your swing or your setup at the plate or whatever it is. You'd think that you could retain that. It's one thing if you just don't have the physical skill and capacity to do it. But if you do and it was really just a matter of unlocking it by changing something about how you work physically, then you'd think that you could sustain that, but that's not always the case. I mean, sometimes players really will just peak for a year or two and it's not necessarily a fluke, but it doesn't mean that they can continue to play at that level forever or even until they really reach an advanced stage of decline physically. Sometimes it's that, yeah, you do have some nagging injury and maybe that's the case with Yelich that makes it harder to execute in that way. Sometimes it could be that teams start pitching you differently and they find a way to counteract whatever you manage to unlock there or maybe you just get into bad habits for some reason and you just forget how to do what you were doing so well or a coach changes or something else about where you're playing or how you're playing changes or something's going on in your personal life that we don't even know about. So you can't necessarily count on these things continuing, but it is confounding when you have someone like that who played at that level for a couple of seasons and obviously the brewers banked on him continuing to play at a very high level because they gave him a long-term contract to do just that. So, you know, I guess there's still some hope as long as he is still crushing the ball, then you kind of can convince yourself hope maybe he's just one adjustment away from crushing the ball in the air instead of on the ground. He's done that before. There is some precedent for him making that adjustment. So I guess there's still hope, but it's not something that he's really provided me with much more faith that he can do in the small sample that we've seen thus far this season. Yeah, it's like when in 2020 Eric Hosmer was just like putting the ball in the air and we were all like, oh wow, like maybe he finally figured it out and then he was really not very good at all last year, although I am now for the first time sort of engaging with Eric Hosmer's early 2022 line and hey, look at you, Eric. Good for you, friend. We aren't Friends. I don't dislike him necessarily. We're just not acquainted friend it was a weird thing to say, but yeah, it was like, you sit there and you're like, okay, for a 156 plate appearances, you had it sort of figured out that you had to hit the ball, even some amount in the air. Right. You know, it wasn't like he had a crazy launch angle, but some amount in the air. Like his average launch angle was like, who? Or something the year before? And then, you know, it was like 8.7 in 2020. We're like, okay, we're just gonna figure some stuff out and then he was like, no, I'd prefer not to. Yeah. Eric Hosmer has a four 57 babbit. Yeah. Sustainable. I bet.

"We're all upset with what's taking place but it's kind of a fascinating story line to watch because these two guys started out as the left side of the infield for the padres of course machado playing third tattoos at shortstop and it looked like these two. We're going to be the pillars for the padres to move around moving forward right. These are the guys they were going to build around. They look to trade. Eric hosmer at the deadline to get out of that contract at first base. So that leaves these two gentlemen as the big bats in the middle and to see them going at it was certainly not what you want to see a padres fan but machado seems to be maturing seems to be understanding and working with tat tease ultimately get him to understand the situation and what they need at this particular moment but for the padres.

"Hosmer, making 150 million to be like the sixth most important guy in the Padres lineup. There is no pressure on Eric Hosmer toe ever produce more than like a couple of doubles a week, and the guy has I mean, he's playing in San Diego. He's surrounded by tap, tease Machado. All the pictures they just acquired. He has consistently have the best contract in baseball. And to me, no one is really close. So I I'm gonna counter that with one guy because I think Eric Hosmer is like the diet version of this guy because he got his championship in in, um, in Kansas City. He played in two World Series because two back to back right. He's a part of that little Ned Yost run there, which was super cool. I think obviously they lose to the Giants and beat the Mets. But I think the one guy who didn't even better might have been Albert Pool Hole stewed. Powerful has basically did the same thing. He got two huge contract. She's rookie of the year is MVP's. He's multiple time World Series champion that he takes like a 10 year deal to go to Disneyland. Nobody hears for him again. It doesn't have to do anything because my trials on the team he's like I could just kick back and kinda hit doubles their cheer me if I had 600. I'll do it in ST Louis. Like who knows, man, But Albert Pool horses got got one of the best deals go, and I think as far as big leaguers, you can't get what you can and he's still gonna get paid. That's the point like he's like, you could just pay me. I'll go home. That's fine. I'll go. Do Whatever. So he's got a good deal, you know? Well, she's got a good deal, dude.

You know that sort of thing changing the lightbulbs jumpstarting the car fixing things around the house organizing plumber, talking to the car mechanic, and so on before that my late father filled this role for me. The strange thing is that I had a very technical job in a totally male dominated field, which included things like wiring, soldiering using power tools, assembling huge sound and lighting systems, and so on. Certainly very capable of my job. The only thing I ever really needed help on was the heavy lifting or being too short to reach something from the ladder. But for reasons that Miam- still exploring I just handed the power of these mainly duties at home to these men, my whole life, my husband leaving me was a huge shock. Aside from a multitude of other things, I experienced something I had never felt before. Helplessness is an awful thing, and although I hated myself for it I found still relied on him. The first time I had a house emergency was failure of the front gate motor when it stopped working I sat on the floor in cried because I did not know what to do. Do. He would know what to do, but he was no longer there and do not want to call him then I pulled myself together and Message Group of friends within a couple of minutes. My other names and numbers of professionals I also ask some people in my street for help. And what are you know? Help arrived in the form of a kind neighbor. One morning my car would not start again. I sank into despair and cried. I needed to get somewhere. He always sort of these things out. And at that moment a dear friend messaged me and said she would come and help me in the afternoon at a commitment for the whole morning, so I called an Uber and got to where I needed to be and got a ride home. She came to help me. The next day I went in myself. Jumper cables and a trickle charger then. I got a new battery. Jumpstarting. Your car is not rocket science. I started doing more things for myself is a hard thing to transition to taking your power into your own hands, but my friend who had been divorced for several years, said to me something simple yet it was profound. She said Google it or look it up on Youtube. You can find out how to do practically everything I've pretty much rebuilt my house myself tanks to Youtube so I did after helplessness into essentially learning I've learned how to do a lot of things and I will keep on learning each time life. Throw something Emmy. I've learned how to fix all sorts of things I can take a lot of my land rover apart and fix things myself. I removed and replaced silicone in the kitchen and the shower I treated rising damp, I asked to garner road to please show me how to replace the line in my edge trimmer. Not Do it for me I replaced a life fitting. I looked up Eric Hosmer, my dishwasher and washing machine and fix the problems. I even mow. The lawn turns out is a great workout as well so bonus. And if I'm not able to do it myself, I can hire someone to do it for me. The details of such a person are available on the Internet. I joined the Automobile Association. And when my car broke down, I made one call and people arrived to sort it out for me. You can do things for yourself.

He leaves the Padres with a two ninety one batting average thirty one runs thirty four runs batted in. Philadelphia is at San Diego tonight. Seven PM Pacific start Eric hosmer is my guest Erik. It's good to have you back on. How are you? Good. Good. Good. It's been awhile. Eric, great talking to you. Listen, you dropped a couple of tough ones in Miami. And now you've got coming in tonight. So how eager to get back to the park at that taste out of your mouth as quickly as you can. Yeah, yeah. We're definitely going to get back you know Cup series. Betsy one of the first one dropping the next two so we understand we got a good team coming in. We gotta pick it up a little bit. So I think I was really gonna get back and get back to work here. 'cause Murray joining us. All right. So you're in your second season with the Padres. So how is life for you with that team? And how do you like America's finest city? It's all about here. What the way out here far off one of the best setups, you can have beautiful ballpark. The weather's obviously really good for your body, and it's really fun to play out here every day. But I it's been fun to grow guys last year were making their debuts in the big leagues. And now, some of these guys for mill raises, and the Chris paddock guys are making a name of themselves in the league. So it's fun to see how far we've come in the year. And. You know, I tell you what it, it's been a big, big client guys, look good. Eric hosmer. Joining us a lot of young guys. You mentioned look to you, as an example, you've been on a tear lately, but your teammate, one hundred reference Renfro, said that since my thought was really interesting. Eric, he said to the union Tribune that when you were not hitting his well at the start of the season, quote, it was kind of cool to watch them struggle. You got to see what he does when he does struggle to watch him put in the work. No, it's going to come back and not panic. Even if he is struggling, you would never know it. He's always high energies, a lot of fun to be around in, quote to me. That's really high praise of you as a leader. How do you make sure that if you're not hitting the way you wanna be hitting? You still bring into the park every single day as a leader and as a teammate. Yeah. You know this game baseball getting get on your mentally with the hundred six game season. You just gotta you really just gotta tell yourself at the start of the season that you trust your work for one hundred sixty two games. And you know, there's going to be, you know, there's going to be down but you really gotta stay level headed. He's gotta be the same guy and you got to be a good teammate and play hard every single day. And that's been tally. I have, and you know that the war between the work, I put in the season, the work, I put it in spring, and the day to day routine I trust that, you know, over the long haul, it'll end up working out, but to hear that phrase from a teammate, especially means a lot. And, you know, the guys are the same way, there's a couple of guys that didn't start out the way they want to as well. And have turned it around and continue to do the same thing I'd done every day the field. Eric hosmer. Joining us now United talked in the past about how big a part you weren't changing culture in Kansas City and building. An expectation of winning the results might not have shown up on the scoreboard, the way would've liked last year. But did you start to see some changes from a culture? Standpoint. Yeah, you definitely at this point. We're at now this year. We have a lot of guys that we plan on being here for a while at the big league level. Now, I think it's different that way, these guys have confidence, you guys aren't scared. They give you everything they have. And, and that's the biggest thing I think there's no fear in and guys game they go out play with confidence. And, and that's what you know, everybody tries to continue to reach in the in the locker room there to go out there and be yourself and and have competent to what we do. And you know, obviously, they quit the academic Manny helped a lot that really brought allow swag, our team and definitely different field this year compared to last year. Cosmo joining us. What about that? I mean you made the decision you come in, if we have time, I'll double back to that. But you mentioned Manny Machado when the team goes out and they signed him before the start of the season. What was your personal reaction to that news? Then what kind of a message does that send the entire clubhouse? That's exactly it, it just changes the message changes the feel around the, the whole organization. I think when you bring in a guy like Manny Machado. There's, there's nothing about your club that says development I think it's a win. Now attitude it shows you that ownership in the front office is doing what they can to for us to win. So you now it becomes on the guys in the locker room and on the field to go out there and produce. So I think it really did it brought a swag, our team. But at the same time, urge that, you know, we're in the thing, and we gotta go out there and compete ready to win every single day. Now, sanding Padre, Eric hosmer, my guest, and then a further extension of that you and Machado, had dinner with team executive chairman, Ron Fowler to let him know among are things that you wanted for Nanto junior on the roster. Coming back from injury at this moment, but at twenty what did you see in the let you know that he was ready to be a part of that big league club? Todd. Todd is a guy that, you know, he's everything he does whether it's on baseball fitter off. The baseball field is going to be the best that whatever he does. It's amazing to see how talented at such a young age and tools wise. I don't think you know, I think a lot of guys in that clubhouse. We, we haven't seen a guy that young have those good tools that he has. But the biggest thing is that has been tally. And you know the way he approaches the game. He when he's in the clubhouse, he's just another guy and even off until you don't think he's twenty years old. He's he's really mature for days. And you know, you can see medically how good he handles just everything that's thrown out of life. He's obviously a top prospect, and had a lot of attention come his way. But the way he handled his business and say the, the first month the season he was leading our club. And you can tell he was he was leading in every aspect of the way. So special young talent that San Diego's really lucky to have for a long time talking to Eric hosmer, Eric, I'm kind of curious. It's, it's a process you understand this. This and you know it's not something that's going to happen overnight or even in your first year there. But at the same time you're used to winning you've always one as manager any green saw it. He felt like maybe you actually even putting too much pressure on yourself. And you were putting the weight of the entire world on your back to try to get the team to win because you want it so badly. Was there anything to that? What was that experience? Like last year. Whenever you're losing order, whatever you're not when you're, you're gonna try harder. You don't enjoy your time when you're losing. That's for sure. So trying to find any way possible to get out of it. Trying to find a way to get the guys out of it and just never happened. But, you know, I think that's what the beauty of our club, this year is, you know, these guys all have that same untalented where losing, not okay for these guys. And, you know, at least a bad taste in their mouth, like you said dropping the series against Miami. You know, I know these guys will be fired up get in. They're ready to work today. And I think that's motivating thing. And that's what makes it fun to go into work everyday. Because you know you know you're playing with twenty four. The guys have that same talent as you so nasty about one more young. I let you go race another player. You've been really high on what is he showing you this year, especially with sixteen home runs? He has already man. I tell you what this guy's got some of the most amazing power. I've seen of. I've gotten to be a on the world baseball. Classic with guys like Stanton. And some of these guys that have like our power, and, you know, there's about five of those guys that are just in a different class when it comes to power in the league and where you guys hit ball stadium and Fram and Renfro as well are in that class. And you know, definitely be cool to see if not both those guys at least one of those guys head over to Cleveland and do that homerun derby, because I tell you what. I know we're on the west coast games a little later. But if the world conceded, guys, hit some baseball, they'd be amazed at how far they can hit a baseball, and it'd be it'd be some fun to see these guys derby light tower power is one of my favorite hitting to ninety one nine home runs thirty four runs batted in on the season leads the team in a number of offense categories in the pod phase back at it tonight at home against Philadelphia. Eric had been too long. It's great to have you back then. I appreciate it so much. I agree. Always great talking to you guys talking Iraq day. Good luck. Eric hosmer. Joining us good. It's awesome Padres baseball. And he's really nice year and the young guys obviously looked to him. He's a World Series champion it world baseball classics champion, and all star a four time gold glove winner, a silver slugger, and that's like.
"eric hosmer" Discussed on The MLB Show
"The price of the jersey will remain what the teams think you're willing to pay for it. And they'll just pocket the difference. If they can get you to pay the same price while paying players less. And I think that message is starting to get out there more, and I think having this tipping point three years in advance to the end of the CBI gives the players a lot of a lot of up room to hone their public relations message to set money aside for a strike fund and really get organized. And I think they're taking advantage of that opportunity. It's been very encouraging to see shocking. I do see kind of a group of players within the union really starting to speak out. And you know, there's more and more last off season. It was just I think like Eric hosmer in kenley Jansen Justin Upton straight up admitting. He didn't want anything to do with free agency. Just because it was going to be horrible ended up being so much more pressure than I think any of us at any idea. It's good to see that. There are so many more. I can I can barely keep track of all the players talking about it this spring, which was different like, I can list them. Also the Astros pitching staff alone. There's like a I mean, I mentioned Q and Justin Burland or but Garrett Cole. I mean, he was the pirates union rep before he got traded. He's been vocal about this stuff. Saying, you know, we saw James Tyrone who took over for coal at the top of the rotation ended as the pirates union wrapped like the the nominal union. Organizers guys like McEwen and coal in town are actually they're acting like they're acting like actual union organizers now one of the things that's very encouraging to me you mentioned. Ver- lenders being very vocal, even though he's already been paid in other players who have already been paid or being vocal. That's a huge change from some of the original downfalls of the of the union back in the eighties. When like Bob Boone and Paul Molitor went around talking to other players talking directly with blood Seelig kind of undermining what Marvin Miller, Gene Orza in the rest of them were trying to do and getting in a fight about it saying like, well, this is our union in since you know, there are more veterans than there are Priore guys who don't wanna be VR guys much longer. So forget, you know, forget those guys like we already get paid. Why should we strike for for this amount of time to fight for this thing that doesn't matter to me anymore of of course, I'm Bob moon got caught up in collusion by after that partially because of the rally he had within the union to change their direction. That's a whole nother story. So it's good to see guys like for Landers in hosmer right after he got signed last year still bringing all of this up. Because the union has been missing the solidarity in that was the real change for the owners is once they were organized, you know, behind bud Seelig in a never showed any cracks that was kind of the beginning of the end in the players really need to get back to that point. I mean, you were talking about the eighties this happened as recently as last CBA back in twenty sixteen where the players wanted stuff. Like better hotel accommodations in an extra seat on the spring training bus in the owners said I mean, it probably wasn't this tit for tat. But like those of the concessions at the players got and the concessions, the owner sky was okay. Have it hard cap on international spending. Yeah. The perception that these were like one to one trades was definitely unfair. But the fact that those were the things the players were concerned about instead of like the dismantling of free agency. You know that is worth criticizing, and they certainly been awoken to the issue now in seem to realize like, oh arbitrations gonna be worthless..
"eric hosmer" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Say in some elements at superior, so I don't know what the trigger was I do not want to say this only comes down the money. I know that we were aggressive, and I know our offer was extremely competitive. And I know I'm standing disappointed in it and get it done in Chicago continuing to stew over the missed opportunity. Now, many Machado will be a draw in San Diego. Bob Nightingale from USA today earlier on ESPN radio. So maybe he shows more that. Large Hispanic community in San Diego. So I think more people will come watch him because of his heritage everything else. Maybe do more. Backflips and stuff like that is like you see stuff like that you bring more people to see I think, you know, I think the Cincinnati Reds are going to get an uptick and sales because y'all wig same reason exciting to watch how strange was it that we have the contract with Manny Machado. And yet we're not talking about the Yankees Red Sox. Dodgers or cubs were the team that signed a guy like that for that kind of money. Yeah. Much harder to get that kind of money. Deep voice for hitting. The youngest were never interesting. Never you haven't even talked to digital Machado since November. Dodgers never showed any interest. So you're right. I mean, it's good for baseball at least in a small market team team as being accused of that trying to win and just rebuild a goes and get together like that you kind of spread around the star power, hopefully, but their sake, he's not lost. What people forget about right? Small-market also by they have not had a winning season since two thousand and ten this team has been irrelevant and major league baseball. So I give them credit for going out to Eric hosmer not too long ago and manning Machado this time around but realistically if they don't have a winning season in another three to four years. What is that gonna do to them when it comes to Manny Machado? Well, yeah. That'd be very interesting to see what happens, then, you know. Then then you trade is Murphy traded Machado firms system. Some people to get sick firm system. Simply you got to produce. Level. I think they think that they should be competitive here in two thousand twenty. You know, maybe be at least a five hundred team this year. But they gotta start showing some signs. Real people. You very tired of Washington. Gino matter. You know, what star players? For now. It looks like they will have Manny Machado and Eric hosmer who a year ago landed an eight year deal with the Padres for a hundred and forty four million all we can say.
"eric hosmer" Discussed on FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball
"It's gonna especially your daily foreheads because it's going to be super beneficial for you in season. Yeah. You're going to push them around. Anyway. All right. Let's move onto the next group. I call it the flawed starner's. I see how Ian Desmond Miguel Cabrera my boy, Eric hosmer. Nobody's boy and Yuli gurriel who we already discussed it third base. So we're not really going to get too deep on him. He's kind of that late. Batting average decent guy. Early. Would rather have my corner? Let's start with e five, and you know, I was a little bit surprised to see like just now when we were talking about him, and I went to his page. I was a little bit surprised to see his numbers because I think the perception is that he completely fell off last year. And that's not reading the half. Well, but he always seems to have a bunk months, and it's usually early to and that that's that's an economic staple. But he still went thirty two one zero seven and he did that missing twenty games compared to twenty seventeen. So. Yeah, the batting average went down to fifty to forty six and it's slowly been trickling down to seventy seven to sixty three to fifty eight to forty six, but you're still got your thirty one hundred despite having to give back the time to injury. So I'm wondering what's all the fuss about, you know, him completely falling off if you think you can get healthy again this year, and I know that that's a concern too. Because older, and we automatically assume that Bruce D H, so he's going to play more. I. Oh, that's interesting. But I think Bruce should play. I. Why wouldn't they just have Bruce planet? He's the younger more spry guy spray. So spry the adjective, you only used for super old people. I would assume that because Jay BRUCE'S injury history has been lately, you're bad last few years. So I I would assume that he would get more time at h they'll probably I mean, they could split it. Fifty fifty just give shirt eating your both halftime players in terms of the field. I think this. I think he's going to be fine. I think he should have no problem repeating the numbers that we've seen from him over the course of the last five years, which is Edwin. Yeah. Being Loda high thirty home runs and a two sixty average in a lots of runs driven in. And you know, he he's just consistent and the park context doesn't really change as much as you might think going from from progressive to Safeco because they're actually quite similar for righties. Now, if you're a lefty, it'd be it'd be a bigger difference because progressive is quite friendly to lefties and then safe coz, more neutral to hurting them. But for for the right handers. It's pretty neutral at both parks. I that shouldn't be a major deal. Do we still get one hundred again, do we get our fourth straight or fifth straight one hundred RBI season and seven out of eight and nine. Ninety eight RBI season lymphocyte one hundred twenty eight one I don't think he's going to be on this team super long..
"eric hosmer" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"As always my pleasure house two thousand nine hundred nineteen treating yourself bar. It's been phenomenal. I have not had a drink the entire year. Ooh, I have not had a drink in an entire year. So far. Well, one of my New Year's resolutions. And after three weeks, it's working. Well, he got nineteen or twenty days in are you gonna go three sixty five. No. Okay. That was my New Year's. I accomplish that. Watching your NFL today. You Cowboys aren't in it. But somehow you'll mustard through. Do want to start with the hot stove stop. Now. I'm hearing there could be two Manny Machado mystery teams. This is part of what you do you're tied into all these teams, you know, all the general managers shoot. You impressed me when you text somebody and get him on his show, twenty minutes later, are there actually mystery teams out there you buying any of this? I'm not buying any of it. And I apologize because I know it would be great for the entertainment of the sport. If we could sit there and say, guess what the injuries are in it or guess what the Yankees are going to swoop in last minute and get him. But I really don't believe that. And I've done as good a job as I think you possibly can do staying with the pulse of all thirty teams. I believe Manny Machado will end up either with the White Sox or the Phillies. I'm not sure anybody is in this thing at a level could persuade him to go any other place. And that's kind of how I view it. Now does that mean that there's no chance? Mystery team, of course, not if all of a sudden we wake up tomorrow morning and Aeronautica was traded to the Yankees. And we hear Machado was signed a long term deal with the Rockies taking the money to they're not a wooden. Would it be completely a surprise and a shock? Yeah. But could it happen? Sure. But I think if if nothing changes between now and Ballantine's day, I think you'll see Machado wearing a white sock hat or affiliates at okay, if it comes down to those two, and they seem to be the teams that are the most aggressive pursuing him. Is there a favorite between those two is an east coast guy dizzy evaluate who's got the better town on the roster right now and give them a chance to win a championship. Or is it all going to come down to who's going years who's gonna most dollars MOS most dollars? I really do Jody, Malcolm. And I think look I think the dollars with fame. I think Philadelphia would have the edge because they're closer to winning. I think Philadelphia would have the edge because of the ballpark. So I think that I would mean that way if they were the same. I'm kind of thinking the Jeff passan's report was accurate Jeff passing of ESPN reporting that the White Sox at eight years on the table. He didn't report the. The amount. But there was a report in Chicago that he had two hundred and fifty million for eight years, which makes sense. I also think there'll be a lot of opt in and opt out clauses that could make the eight years into nine ten and a a player to get out of the deal. I think they'll be creative enough. I think that's going to be difficult for Philadelphia the match in on Harper as well that being said, I feel like Philadelphia is to get Harper warmer Chato. I don't think they're going to get both. But I think they can get one of the two. So I kind of find the drama fascinating. Because Bryce Harper. I think right now it's between Philadelphia and Washington, and it would be interesting because the went back to Washington, I think it would help Machado to have have both Philadelphian the White Sox bidding but apart to sign with Philidelphia, then I think it would take his leverage away from the White Sox. So I'm kind of enjoying the Scott Boras who represents Harper Dan Lozano represents Machado kinda sidebar drama and all these negotiations. Jimbo near with us on CBS sports radio. I agree with that moving to Harper. If he doesn't get what he wants. And you just said sometime about Valentine's Day Machado slash heartburn. This is gonna drag into February whenever it gets done last year. I think you and I were doing a show together. As a matter of fact when Scott bars finally got JD Martinez done. It was a week before they ever got around avenue breads coverage, but everyone knew that he had signed with the Red Sox after the fact he had explanations as to why it was still a good deal for JD Martinez. Even though it came in at much less than what most of us speculated during the off season. He added the opt outs and the like Scott played the we didn't do badly card if Harper takes a lesser deal than what was expected ten years upwards of thirty five per are. We going to get the same kind of spin. We heard last year with the Martinez deal or we're gonna get the avenging agent vitriol and m. Is colluding against major league baseball players. What are you going to get the latter? But he is going to get the ten years three hundred ten three hundred and twenty million because he's got it on the table from Washington. So we know we're going to get that here. I don't know. How far the Phillies are gonna go. But I think if the Phillies are going to beat Washington they're going to have to go ten three fifty. I think if it's close he goes back to Washington. Now, the interesting part is not going to get what he wants. Because what he wanted was Yankees cubs or dodgers. The Yankees have made them. No offers. The cubs have made him. No offers to date doesn't mean he can't change. The dodgers have made an offer. But it was for very short term deal with a record-breaking average annual value deal. They offered more money than any singular player has ever gotten. But it's a short term deal. And I just don't think Harper as any interest in doing a short term deal like that. When he's sitting there in free agency at age twenty six so again, I I. I think it's gonna get exactly what we thought he was going to get I for the when I wrote for the athletic. I predicted projected ten years three twenty. I think I'm gonna hit it pretty close in terms of Machado. I had predicted ten years three ten I think I'm going to be a little bit high on that. He may get he may end up at nine to seventy at this point. So I I may be a little bit high on him but ballpark they're gonna get what we all thought. They were going to get people just upset because there's not a lot of times a lot not a lot of teams bidding which I'd be upset too. It makes no sense to me Jody neck, and they're upset about the date that they haven't signed. I don't know why they are because JD Martinez signed a February twenty six last year. Eric hosmer signed on February eighteen last year and five years ago tomorrow, max Scherzer signed with Washington. So this is just normal behavior for Scott Boris is top free agents. But I think it is kind of embarrassing that we're watching the angels spend thirty four million. This year on Trevor K hill. Matt Harvey Johnson mcroy Justin bore and Cody Allen, but they won't spend thirty four million a year on Manny Machado, like I would trade all five of those guys for Machado. And then to try to convince Trump to sit to stay a year from now if you're sitting there with Machado and up in trout and Tommy that's a pretty good foursome to a core to wanna stay. So, you know, I just don't get some of these teams San Francisco in a complete rebuild you get a chance to get a twenty six year old Harper it takes you three years to rebuild. You still got Bryce Harper sitting there, and you're just it doesn't make sense to me that more teams aren't playing Jody. But it is what it is. I know a lot of owners in GM's and presidents are blaming it on their analytics department and yet every time I reach out to department of a club. And I've done it with four teams. And I say, well, how do you guys project Harper and Machado ages thirty three thirty four thirty five the back end the ten year deals, and they all say they recommended to the baseball people to sign up. They're all for it. And and and so it's interesting how everyone's trying to blame their analysts and yet no one's going to bring forward the truth at the analysts are saying that the ten years on twenty six year old players is actually a very smart good play through thirty five. And they're saying it's a better play than all these teams that wanna give five years to Thirty-one-year-old Jim Boden from Sirius XM's MLB channel the athletic and CBS H Q our guest here on CBS sports radio. I'd latest hot rumor is that things are heating up between a j Pollock and the dodgers. And now that one I'm having trouble understanding and figuring. They only want to go short term with Harper. Big. B but only short term. What are they trying to sign Pollock for like, six months? If you don't wanna go. Harper house, you're gonna guy like AJ Pollock. Yeah. So eight politics been their target all along and their reasoning all along and this goes back to when I was with him at the winter meetings in Vegas their position back. Then why would we go ten years on Harper when we can get Pollock for four years? And I guess my argument back is well, you'll Pollock ages thirty one to thirty five I'd rather have Harper twenty six to thirty five. So I don't get it Pollock is going to get a mccutchen. Michael Brantley type of deal somewhere in there range wise, do you know that he's played a hundred and twenty games once in his entire seven year career, you know, over the last three years, he's never played on the twenty games. And we're going to sit there, and I look I understand the fit you can put him in centerfield move Bellinger. Right. Play Purdue going left Pollock gives you right back to put in between all the lefties. I get it. He doesn't play a lot. So you can put to 'em. I know the dodgers. Put down. Look, I understand what they're doing. I just disagree with it. I can Rosenthal the athletic reporting today that they're close with yellow send jock Peterson to Chicago that allow for do go to go take Peterson spot, and then you can find politics play center, you can put Bellinger and right with Muncie at Pratt fine. If that's what you wanted to your the dodgers you ever want a World Series since nineteen eighty eight. And you really don't wanna go get Bryce Arbor like it. It's just it's just don't defied to me, man. Don't quite understand either. I let's talk about a couple guys are signed one of which you could be dealt in the next twenty four forty eight hours, but I both dealing with the New York Yankees under the raiders signing DJ LeMay, you know, one and you're very good at this your buddies Rosenthal and Joel Sherman and Heyman and everybody else. No one had DJ LeMay you talking to the Yankees until about twenty two hours before the deal with I and all of a sudden he was signed to a two year deal with the Yankees. I say. Real good signing for the Yankees. I think it's a good fit for the Yankees. I think the Machado thing was always a long shot to begin with despite Machado's desire to be a Yankee. I worked out for the Bronx bombers, quite well, how did they keep it? So well under wraps. I I don't know how they kept it under wraps. I think it's certainly a lot of people thought they would go get Machado. And if they got Machado than he would play till DD comes back towards its second Machado short into her third when they signed to Lewinsky who can't play anymore..

"But I can't just connect two dots. But we look at the Padres right now. And the Piedras have good up and coming roster a better roster than they had last season. And the one thing they're really missing right now is quality third basement. They don't have that will Myers going back to the field cetera. I can't play first base because of Eric hosmer. You know, who would look really really good Nepad as uniform now in for the future who would really help and into line with their supposed contention window was Manny Machado. Now. I assume again, the Piedras owner could probably afford Manny Machado, just flat out, regardless. But if not for the presence of Eric hosmer, you would assume the Padres couldn't would be an actual player from any Machado, even though right now, we've been giving no indication that that's actually true. So leaving aside. The fact that the president air caused didn't actually make the Padres better last season that was just bad statistic. Ix what what would you say to the argument that you do have to worry at least a little bit about money because the presence of air Cosma has prevented Padres fans from getting involved in the sweepstakes for of really really good peak era Mankato well, first of all if that is your argument as you head pathetically Padres owner, then one could easily then equally advocate and say, well, you knew he was going to be a free agent near you knew they had this giant free agent class. And maybe you thought air cosmic it would be a foreign player this year in that would help. But you know, some lack of foresight might be accused of you for not thinking ahead to the fact that Manny Machado and Bryce Harper were rather publicly going to be free agency here, the other argument is that if you know, if you're going to set a budget, you have to be able to prove it, you can't just say, oh, well, we can only spend this much because there's no we have no reason to believe it, even if it sounds reasonable and certainly Ha's Mer versus Machado is an extreme case of nine digit salaries, but. You still you still have to show some evidence that you couldn't just do both. Because really what is coming down to his the teams that are willing to to pay or the ones that are going to talent we made fun of Mike Illitch in the Tigers for years in it turns out that they were the only heros, right? Yeah. I mean, it's kind of a confusing thing to know how to write about or talk about because we're not saying that team should be run. Like, a charity. I mean, it's it's nice. If it were just for everyone's benefit and all the owner cared about was just making all the people in that city happy and didn't care about money or prophets at all. But that's you know, it's a business, and we understand that. And it's great if you can get an owner who's willing to lose money on baseball team because he has tons of money from other stuff, and how much money do you need in life. But there are not unlimited number of that type of person. It's just how do you know when the team is actually endanger. Of not making a profit or losing money. It's really hard. And they know that we don't know. And so they can pretty much say anything, and we know that sometimes they say misleading things because there's just no way to to call them on it. So it's a really tough thing. And it's especially frustrating because it's baseball, and we know everything about everything, and we know all the stats even better than we used to. And as you're pointing out we know all the salaries, we do not know that other half of the equation. So it's really hard to know how to treat it. So you're you're the director of editorial content at baseball perspectives. I believe it says on the masthead. So what would you want a typical transaction alyssa's to look like these days?.
