"Rangoon's cramps Zack. Hello I'm excited to finally have some some time to rest away from the playoffs. Yeah I I have not had his restful a weekend as I would like because my cat kept waking me up all his trying to sleep in because he wants food every four hours but anyway You might notice the absence of Ben Lindberg Band. In accordance with baseball tradition edition has opted out of this podcast so he will not be You will not be joining us today. But that's fine because that gives Zaka me more room to talk about The Apple TV plus series for all mankind and Breakdown some immediate post World Series News. Because there have there have been Zach news a plural. Now the the the thing you ever see the orchestra for the king and I when I was in In High School. And there's a line where the king says yes. There are news news so anyway. Let's we're just GONNA go straight down a listed I've created in shared with you. We're GONNA do some quick quick news reactions. Then we'RE GONNA breakdown free agency. So the first thing up is set of managerial hires. And let's just lightning round these What are your thoughts on Mike Metheny to Kansas Kansas City? I admit I sorry to royals fans but I laughed when I saw this news because it seemed so fitting that team with maybe a history history of being somewhat backwards in terms of analytics adoption Would hire a manager with the same reputation but I think actually more seriously a manager. A who oversaw a clubhouse in Saint Louis which got a lot of feedback about allowing things like bullying rookies. That have fortunately finally mostly been phased out of baseball these days and It's not a great thing in Kansas City. Team that is bringing in a lot of young players have a manager who has in the past allowed such an environment to flourish yet. That's my big thing that I got on really give a damn about his bullpen management. Because it doesn't matter a ton and it won't so royal seem for the next few years the clubhouse stuff from the envy's rain in Saint Louis like he's eat like if he were if I were hiring a manager he you would need to prove to me that he's learnt what he's learned from that because that would be borderline disqualify idiot and even then like there are dozens of other qualified candidates. Who I I? Don't have something like that on their track record but at the same time this team's GonNa suffer in the next few years. He probably was hired to be fired when the royals are starting to get good and they disappoint for the first time so like this. I hate to just wave off a franchise that was in the world series of won the world series within the past five years. But at this just feels like a everybody joked about it happening and then it happened and we're all GONNA forget about it until until firemen for years so that's with that Speaking of laughingstock franchises and Participants in the two thousand fifteen world series the mets fired Mickey callaway and of hard Carlos. Beltran this one. I actually do quite interesting interesting. This is the opposite reaction to the metheny one for me. I love this higher because Beltran has been a player of interest or a retired player of interest for other front offices before I think he interviewed for the Yankees job. Ultimately went to Aaron Boone and the obvious connection is Beltran's famous strike strikeout to end the two thousand six and I'll see but he was an awesome player for the mets for many years and he seems like he has all of the qualities from even when he was veteran player. That point as he's going to be a future manager and maybe it came a little early than expected by teams are no longer afraid to hire recent players and Beltran seems as good a fit as any player of that caliber can be. Yeah I would want somebody I said there are two misgivings died that I would have about Beltran. One is the the lack of high level bigly coaching or Or minor league managerial experience that he is essentially in that Aaron Bhutan. And you know I arbutus. It's been a pretty good manager. So that's not that it's not automatically disqualifying. The other thing is this goes back to like when Ted Williams was managing that like great player sometimes get frustrated as coaching. This is throughout sports have frustrated coaching players. Who aren't as good as as they were? But you know everything I know about Carlos Beltran it is a human being is Yet that he is smart and easy. Oh easy to talk to you and has just that universal respect in the other thing we make a big deal about whenever a white guy speaks Spanish the importance of being bilingual and managing in managing a bigly clubhouse you know Beltran obviously had sat as well and for some reason Puerto Rican Dominican latin-american us. American managers don't You know they don't get Credit for for be for being able to communicate with everybody in the clubhouse which I think is is a near Automatic qualification for for modern manager. So like my big thing is like what is he. Want with this mets job. Because that's a it's a tricky job. Mickey callaway prove maybe he made it a little more difficult than it had to be but I see he might not be successful but I don't think it's going to be his fault. There's just so much more chaos with that job than than with most so I I wish him well. I am certainly a big fan of Carlos Beltran. I hope he does well in this job. Or after this. Go South in his next one Joe Girardi the Phillies I as affiliates. Fan I kinda wanted dusty Baker but I you know just watching. Gabe Kaplan the past. Couple of years I was. I wanted someone a little more boring with just like a little more base level competence and I think Girardi has the capacity to you. He has the GRAVITAS. The experience While also being open to To what Beltran I think it was about the term in his introductory press conference was calling information impure and communicating that while the player. So I think that the phillies might have gone. I be automatic over correction to the experienced hand. But it's experience hands go. I think they got a good one. I was a yankees fan for large portions sounds of journeys tender and I think he's a good manager. He's not the best in the League but he is. Certainly I think above replacement level if we have a way to come up with warm wins above replacement manager. He has averaged ninety wins ear and his Major League career. He won the manager of the year award in his lone year in Florida before being fired what he was the the only person ever to win manager of the Earth with a losing record. And it's just a funny footnote. But you could. I'd say well it's easy to win ninety games the INCAS payroll but the phillies probably should have the Yankees payroll and after this off season if they make another big signing or two very well May and I I think Yankees fans by the end especially gave Giardi a lot of grief for being fairly inflexible with his decision making. He always went by what his binder said he should do. But his binder generally incorporated information in a in a smart way and I think the phillies could use an even hand as you were saying long after Kappler and I also think like. I don't think he was doing a terrible job at the end of his Yankees tenure But I'm also a big believer. We're in the fact that sometimes you just need to change that. That like you know he was there for close to ten years and Tani Nears was it full ten years Zo. Any professional relationship that lasts that long has sometimes. Just Gimme to shake up the message. And that's not an indictment of the players or the Organization of the or the manager And so I I think this is a good situation for him. He is a a steady hand For for a team that I think really needs one Speaking of experienced hands a Joe Oh baton this was I think as obvious telegraphed is the Mike Athenee move. He's go into a Los Angeles. I guess it's just the wos Angeles angels I keep wanting in To call the Los Angeles of Anaheim even though they haven't actually been that I wrote a pretty extensive column about this when the hiring happened. But I'm curious if you have anything to add to that I agree. People should read her column because the angels are an organization at a crossroads both on and off the Field Bay have Mike Trout but haven't made the playoffs playoffs and a half decade and need a manager who can help them get there but in addition to that they are under an investigation. After the tragic death Taylor skaggs which seems to have had organizational involvement possibly some sort of drug cover up and Madden hasn't dealt with this kind of issue before but when he spoke at basically Eddie press conference after Addison Russell's suspension for for violating the League's domestic violence policy. It left a lot to be desired. And I think as you pointed out in your piece. That's a big concern given that here's another for example of something that won't WanNa talk about. But you kind of have to if this is if if you are the public facing angels employees now yeah and it's not to say that he can't learn from that experience or that the that changing or changing the organization won't really force him to reevaluate. Wait the way he dealt with that and it's also somewhat different conversation so I think from an onfield perspective. Obviously the long standing angel ties is a you know. He was a coach player for some thirty years in in that organization having him come back was It's an obvious feel-good story. He's another guy who I think the message in the fact that the message got stale at the end of his cubs. Tenure doesn't mean the message is bad and has a change of scenery for will work well for him But Yeah it's the the field stuff which is frankly more important than the baseball right now. for that for that angels team so you know. I hope he handles it well. UH-HUH I he's given us reason to doubt so you know I. I hope every year I hope that that higher turns out. But you know I think it's it is at the same time a slam dunk and also something to worry about. So we'll see how that goes JAS Tingler Another first time manager from the Texas Rangers Organization Organization will take over for Eddie. Green in San Diego You know I didn't really get a good feel for Andy. Green is a manager but this is a a padres team did last year. I think it was a free hit after they signed Machado in free agency and they had some pitcher injuries But Fernando. TT's coming up as a rookie Francisco here coming up his rookie. Maybe they they're still a year away or they were still a year away. Now I think twenty twenty. They're going to be expected to contend. Tingler seems fairly well regarded so we'll see how that goes yet. The interesting thing about him. I think that he has both a coaching coaching and front office background but he also has experience working in player development and one of the issues seemed with green. was that a lot of the padres. Prospects did not got advance and improve like you might have expected them to players like Manny Margot who have kind of stalled at the major league level and given San Diego's future right now is in either triple A. are making their first Introduction to the bigs it makes sense that they would want a manager with that kind of experience but more broadly speaking. I don't know much about Jason Tingler in particular but it's interesting that this off season it isn't like a couple recent off seasons where like every team that wanted a manager. Senator would hire a very specific kind of candidate. It seems like this winter we have former players hired US first time managers..
"fernando tt" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"The at that stage aging vows far exterior stain only lows. What's really welcome to the show. Welcome to the show welcome to show John. Welcome to the show. Welcome to the show. Maybe you were in the show with TV. Show and right days here for the show and look. We got a lot to get to today. I'm gonNA tell. You my most the team. I'm watching the closest right. Now is these pennant races are going down. We'll talk about some of the chances that are evolving and the various races. Martinez is a hard issue. We'll talk about Joe Med Status Luis Severino Making Start for the Yankees today but I still Steve McKenna we help French Roy. He's kind of in the friend zone okay and without getting into too many specific. Can you give him some thoughts on how to handle a situation like that troy. I'm good at baseball. I mean I'm not oprah come on. I'd like to help out all I could say. Be True to yourself your your advice. You're much more conservative. You're the football coaches. Putting on fourth in Jordan to life is sure go for Roy. That's what I'll say all right. Let's get to the baseball. I asked Troy doing the opening segment about what team he's enjoys always watching now a team that he sort of adopting since his rangers are a mess and have had a tough year. I don't care who wins. I don't care loses but the team that I'm watching the most I right now the brewers I love what's in the brewers right now after Christian Yelich his injury Dave everyone's not everyone but a lot of people probably we thought okay that's it for them and they've been playing well since he went down and if you look at their schedule relatives some of the other contenders they have a real shot and here's the thing too and I saw this during the broadcast last night during their victory over the padres. That's a team. That's GONNA draw close to three million million people again this year. It's such a great fan base. It's a fun team to watch. They play with a lot of doozy Azam. I find myself every day down the stretch. Now I'm getting. I'm glad you mentioned the fans because I'm sure I've written this. I don't know this year but last year I think the brewers by far have the most underrated fan base year in one of the smallest markets in the major leagues like you said enthusiastic they pack it in you know so credit to the fans but obviously credit to the team for how they've played since. Yelich went down I think what five and one or six one one since he got injured I know they're nine one and their past and and yeah we'd written him off but there there and that schedule all losing teams arrested the wake couple more against the padres in the pirates reds and Rockies they have a shot at that not only the wildcard but maybe even the the division Asian title. What a story that would be of course? They've never won a world series so yeah if you're if you're teams out of it. The brewers are a good team to get behind so for the record troy because in the opening segment you pick the brewers the team that you're watching. I'm right there with Dave's right there with you. Were with you on. The baseball. Side works with you on the personal side on your friend zone issue okay. You should just know that you've been supported by your guys. Thank you fellows. I really really appreciate the support all right speaking of Christian Galaxy spoke with reporters yesterday eight for the first time since suffering season ending injury given listen. She's sometimes it's doesn't go in your favorite happening session. The first time broken anything in my life live for actually have like a real injury so that's new kinda sucks in that aspect but is pro sports. You know injuries happen. It's is going to happen. Unfortunately yeah just the timing of this very unfortunate and sucks. That seems to be one of those things that's just not fair at at the moment and trust me. I had my pity parties at night at the stadium and felt terrible was kind of just down dumps in the next day after leaving estate after shower clothes back on get going. It's all just being positive in China to get back and I haven't spent any time of you know Y me why. This is says that happened. I can't I have no way to change it now. So it's just about getting better and getting back out there and trust wish I could have an impact on this race or you know if we make the flower participate Nash Just Not GonNa Happen so there's no point to wind down and Dave when Yelich went down. I assumed okay that's it yellow is not going to win the National League. Mvp Award but then I saw cody bellinger at city field over the weekend man he's kind of a mess right now a he's really struggling at the plate we had the Sunday night game and it was clear that he was confused. He's trying to get to this high fastball that he keeps getting beat with by opposing pitchers you could tell from the the nature of the swings that he was guessing and guessing badly. He's numbers are are are kind of drifting downward yelich according to fan graphs leads all nationally players in ward seven point seven but the guy who might wind up winning the thing and I even a week we can go. I think he was GONNA win. Anthony Ren Dona the nationals who just keeps on putting up numbers one hundred thirteen Ron's one hundred nineteen. RBI's now tied with Bellenger Jour- for wins above replacement. What do you got for me on the National League MVP Race Yeah. There's no doubt if momentum you know is a consideration ran. Don't hasn't Belgium. Hold your does it in fact if you go bellinger month by month. It's a straight downward slope. He had fourteen home runs by the end of April. He's been very good all season but yes absolutely dominant. You know that first month so random he's been hot. He's been consistent all year now. The nationals they gotta make the playoffs because suddenly that position is in jeopardy but wren donors in that position to have a couple of signature games these last two weeks to to help the nats secure wildcard spot and yeah that could push him over the top. I think him and bellinger one and even yellowish might get some first place votes. It probably finishes third in the end yeah and you know what from the dodgers perspective. They're probably thinking who cares about the stupid. MVP Ward we're trying to win a world series and we talked about the adjustments that cody bellinger affected in the offseason. He was very diligent. He was very invested. You still continue here great. Thanks dodgers people about how he's trying to work through his slide. The man he's got two weeks before the postseason begins and he is at that point GonNa face a whole bunch of elite pitchers ears and he he was really struggling and that team looks so different to me to the point that during our broadcast the other night I know Alex Rodriguez. My colleague colleague disagreed with me but there is a situation where the mets pitched around cody bellinger and I was like would you really is there. I mean right now with as poorly he is. He's playing. Would you necessarily have to do that. I suppose that's probably an issue. That's going to hang over the dodgers. We go in October well. No there's no doubt in watching dodger games recently here you know they're broadcasters bringing up okay. What's on the table for the chargers last two weeks. Well get Belgium going nine. Hopefully get Kenley Jansen red hot head into the playoffs get review and Kershaw going. They struggled there last starts. Were very good so that was a good sign. They you gotta get Max Muncie going after his little else did Justin Turner as out with what little ankle injury right now so is dominant they've been there's all these little mini questions hanging over the dodgers but I'm with you. I think the biggest one aside from Janssen is bellinger because he has has been so good. He's been their best player all season. They need him to get hot for the playoffs. Yeah and he plays defense tremendous base runner dino. Evil was the dodgers third base coaches telling me over the weekend how good he is it that but you do wonder if he carries a slump in October how much it'll be in his head because because because of struggles in two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen so that's that's something to watch and also to watch the nationally playoff chances. We referenced it with the brewers. It was interesting. David is looking at fan graphs this morning. They've got the nationals the ninety one point eight percent to make the postseason. They got the cardinals at eighty eight point. H seven percent the cubs at seventy six point seven percent the brewers at thirty nine point eight percents according to the numbers the national still in good shape. I gotTa Tell Valium starting to get concerned because I think it was a week ago. I was like Oh nationals are in. You know what things are. There frank a little bit. The cardinals have two more games against Saint Louis in Saint Louis then Miami three than Philly for four in Cleveland for three and it's not trending in the right direction. No it doesn't feel like a ninety one point eight percent probability. Does you know the game that really kind of open it up. I thought was over the weekend then when Max Scherzer face Mike Saroka and Saroka nailed it he'd shut the nationals down Sherzai once again kind of a whole on effort he he just hasn't been one hundred percent Max Scherzer since he came off the I l. so that's not a guaranteed w e Kinda feel like it should be yeah I would not put it at ninety percent with the brewers schedule and somehow the brewers are GonNa get in or at least force a tie or something maybe we get that chaotic four way tie for the NFL Central and then the wildcard that would be fun. I know that's one of the questions you can answer later later on in the show but yeah it's GonNa be fun last two weeks here watching that game with the padres playing last night when we get to this this time of year. There's some teams that just look like they're done like. They packed it. In fact I was talking with a mets player the other day about this he's been on these teams and he talked about how yes some years on some sometimes it can get ugly and September guys are like we can't stand each other. We just can't wait for the season in a we want to go home. I don't know if the padres are like that. I'm not around that. I couldn't speak to do that with any authority. I can't say they're playing a lot of energy. based on what I saw last night the pirates I think we can say like are not in this particular met player. They told him coaching the podcast yesterday when the pirates took the lead on Sunday this player was like the pirates had the LE-. Let's see how long that lasts very skeptical and immediately in the bottom third the pirates gave it up the man the brewers facing some teams that are kind of kind of moving along and meanwhile all your pop is getting. I know they've been we have like something living around in our yard the last few nights bob cat or a coyote. I Dunno there was some droppings and I had to pick up yesterday anyway yet. No the pirates are not in a good place right now. The padres I mean really early the second half is has been pretty awful without the just the different team without Fernando. TT's junior seau yeah. I know we always say there's no such staying momentum and baseball but the brewers have did the brewers win their final eight of the regular season last year to force that yet I with the cubs so so this is a team. I know totally different season but they've done this before. That's gotta be in the back of their minds and that has to help them. You do wish search for the sake for the nationals that they have good days head for the sake of Dave Martinez or manage. Everyone in the hospital had a heart procedure. I'm sure at some point during your time around baseball oh you've been around. Dave who's one of the most positive people in the sport like I remember asking him earlier this year about all of the early season speculation about whether or not he would get fired and I said today we said I was doing the same thing day like i. I wonder if viewing at fire and he's looked a net wasn't thinking about it like him. He positive positive guy and so you know best wishes out today. Martinez moving forward no absolutely and you know and I know he hasn't been given a lot of credit you know but they were twenty. See four and thirty three at the end of May. You know one thousand nine hundred thirty one a few days before that so give him some props for helping the nationals right the ship and you know. Let's hopefully he gets back on the field here. Before the end of the season. I had an evaluator say to me over the weekend that he shocked that. There's is not more being made day to day about Joe Madden status..
