"But no, it's it's it's different. But again, something that we have to go through but you know I'll I'll say this too says. When you see the number of employees they? Ticket takers as the concession people and all the people in the bay area that people who work at the Coliseum also working San Francisco. So those people work our everyday six straight months for their entire. Their entire income, and now that's been shut down I feel so badly for him and your handed baseball back no fans in the stands you know that that's different different difficulty Someone said a matter of fact popular the other day actually can be our call with them, which is a shock because normally that that doesn't happen but Greg mentioned that same thing you said, you know how your dinner. You like the beat out on the field talking in the phone whatever. But you know something we have to deal with and. You know I think a lot of cases something like this. You try to go on your past experience. Things that that you kind of draw from the past and you know the game is still between the white lines and still basically baseball thrown into a hitter and you hope to catch it and you know there's a lot of pressure involved especially postseason I. think that's the most important thing that people have to understand that he is not regular season the astros to under five hundred and they won the first game in their undefeated so far postseason. So you throw all those things out the window you experience and you and you take what you learned maybe. From other times, it can help you in certain situations, and that's where it really comes in and plays a big part in the success in October one, her well Ray Fosse.

"We'll be back with more with Markelle Simeon in just a few moments. Everybody Joe Garagiola here. On the chronicle senior political writer and host of it's all political. Not only do I talk to all the presidential candidates and leaders like Gavin newsom and Nancy Pelosi but I talked to insiders and experts and smart people. But what's going to happen next in national and state politics on my podcast. We talk like real people not like a bunch of dorks. Blue Blazers from Washington. Dc So remember whether political junkie or low information voter. It's all political. Since you're the player up what kind of concerns we. Were you hearing there obviously a lot of things that the union in? Mlb still need to figure out things about like service. Time in the event of a shortened season Status of free agents. And you know even maybe expanded rosters once. There's returned to play things like that are you. Are you hearing from players? That have either concerns or questions about things like that. Yeah there's a lot of issues known. Nobody really prepared for pandemic so a lot of people are within. Mlb are union or trying to speed up this process to get everybody's you know rights taken care of whether it is a shortened season even know season. You know the Olympics. Just just cancel or postpone for a year. We don't know what I'm GONNA do. I'm sure they want to keep it open to try and get as many games as we can once. It's safe to do because the main thing for everybody involved as you know the health and safety of the players and the fans so whatever that takes will do but there's a lot of issues to knock out whether it's service time you know that's a big one. I'm sure for me. I mean being a free agent at the end of this year. You know. It's a concern for everybody to get their own class. Yeah you're in a really unusual situation. Anyone that's a free agent at the end of the season is anyway. But you're one of the Obviously premier guys who might be going out onto the open market so I mean this is a worldwide crisis. Nobody's looking at it in an individual lens but when you do look at this season this is an important season for you. We've talked a little bit before about the possibility of an extension with the as you've you're very open to do so obviously love the organization. You're from the bay area. Love Your Teammates. The coaches and the fans. And we've talked about that but I you know whether Games are played or not. This season really could have a huge impact on you and your future. Yeah I mean for me the only thing I can do is keep myself in shape and make sure that I'm at the top of my game. You know we're finished last year and You know anything that you know cells that we might start a season. I JUST WANNA be ready in every play on our team. Has that attitude to where we we still want to win a world series. This year it's possible shorten season whatever the circumstances are Lee. We feel like we saw a shot. And it's just a different year so we've got talent and we've got guys who are working as hard as they can to keep their themselves in shape and that's all we can do the tough time. Yeah you guys go in. I think some places were even saying. Potentially they felt like you might be the division favorites. Obviously you guys made the playoffs. Two years on a road. Ninety nine ninety seven wins seasons two years in a row And coming back looking possibly stronger with the rotation you have very few Position Battles going on in camp again. Nobody's looking at this from an individual sort of Lens right now or not even really thinking about baseball in the big picture but should there be shortened season. How well do you think you guys might set up for that particularly with the rotation you have a knowing their say double lots of double headers or fewer days off? You guys. Also have Chris Basset when you look at your starting five. Potentially the very good and you have Chris- Bassett will definitely have the talent in the arm. The depth you know it's GonNa be interesting. Everything is hypothetical right now. So if there's a half three months whatever whatever the season length is you know. We like our chances. This is different. You know you gotta get up to a better start out. Assume with the with the shortened season in the past. We've had slow starts. I don't think there's any room for error there. You gotta come out to a better start. Take one day at a time. Obviously yeah it's funny. A mailbag. I did last week. An Ace fan said the as are always so good in the second half. This one's being sort of more like a final three months of the season kind of scenario. How does that? How does that affect you guys? You guys love the second half maybe can rather than looking at it as the start of the season you can look at it as the second half of the season. Yeah I mean. It's just the I think in the past it's been the what our rotation has been at the beginning of the year. Compared to the end the year that we were coming into this year I felt like we had a rotation that looked like our second half rotation at the end last year. So yeah let's isn't a good spot Of course we lost we lost homer and Tanner and Brett Anderson Book. The young guys are coming up and they look pretty good. This spring of course puck can get himself healthy. And you know there's benefits to the season being cut in half or whatever it may be but it's also tough because we're not working. We're not playing. Nobody's working effort and in Japan and Korea. They're they're playing some games. None of them a regular season it but they're playing games. Empty stadiums is. Could you see that is a potential option? I definitely think so. I think it'd be good for every baseball community. Build a turn something on TV. Even though we don't have fans in the stands they'd be able to watch this. This huge need for sports right now. There's a lot of games on there. Were Old Games on TV. And a lot of people insert tune into those. But if you have some games that are live the you can watch on. Tv they'll do a number of our you know our community. Yeah I think that would be a you know. Certainly as a way to kind of get things at least up and running. Initially that makes sense. It'll be weird for you guys. I'm sure are playing in a in an empty stadium but You know it looks like it. I know people here that are watching the Korean league right now. Playing practice games because they're so desperate for baseball. I think that's a good idea. And if we can we have to start that way they'll be beneficial for sure agree now. This also seems like potentially you know a time for if if teams want to do something like contract extensions. It could be a good time to potentially delve into something like that. Do you hear anything about you. Know possible talks or do you think this is more something that would probably be addressed once he once. There's more clarity on a season. Well I haven't heard anything about anybody discussing extensions. The only thing I've noticed is this roster moves where they're letting guys go unfortunately successor is. Nobody's playing right now but seems are doing what they have to do to keep yourself financially. Stable I guess I'm not a GM. Owner I don't know what the date of all that is why we're not playing but in terms of guys getting extensions. I haven't heard anything or seen anything about that. Yeah I it's good to see the. Mlb is taking some steps to At least provide some measure of pay for minor leaguers. It looks like because that was obviously a massive concern in the wake of all the shutdowns and then a lot of teams are also making sure that they're paying their during game workers who are out of work now too so At least some steps taken to help some of the people that are are really in immediate need. It looks like have you been paying attention to any of that kind of stuff. Yeah I mean everybody's in a tough spot right now of course financially if you're not able to work that able to earn your paycheck and you still have bills and a mortgage. What do you do right So companies organizations doing. I'm sure they're doing the best they can provide for. People still have bills. And that's that's important absolutely. Well Marcus thank you so much for joining us on as plus today so glad you and your family are being really careful about social distancing so important for absolutely everybody right now and It's really nice to talk to you. Please keep up the good work and stay in shape and we'll be talking to you about actual real baseball hopefully sooner than later thanks again to Marcus Simeon for joining us.

"So you know with that comes confidence you know once you're confident hitter and you know if you score baseball up that you're going to have some results so that's comes hand in hand. You know a lot of times in Nashville. A lot of these guys with square up baseball exactly the way we wanted and it wouldn't go anywhere and it would be. They'd be frustrating. Only so much I can say good swing happened. I'm still out. There's only so much you can do because at some point you want to see results and last year plan in Vegas with the new baseball in the ballpark and those guys are squaring off those same baseball's and they were getting results now and then. They gave a lot of confidence when they stepped into the box. At all I have to do a just put us all swing and hit the ball hard couple of hitters from that team said the fact that they as a team started the season just really hot. Everybody was kind of coming out of the gate. And and there's a little bit of I guess hitting the contagious. Is that something that you resonates with you that you agree with one hundred percent? I mean we came out of the box in that first series of Al Paso just the bats and and everybody that seem special. I mean is is as talented as a group from one nine that I've had in my years of coaching. I mean I've had the good teams with the Olson's and the penders and the Chapman's and stuff. But I mean one through nine. This team was a solid as as can get. I mean we guys on the bench that were hitting three hundred so I mean it's one of those things that they push each other team. They worked they they were competitive against the other teams and with each other so they were always trying to outdo each other and it was. It was a good team to have and some veterans on that team. Some young guys. They made some some big adjustments and it was really fun to watch is so one guy who put a pretty impressive numbers was it was set brown He's I think thirty seven home runs. I see but that power wasn't entirely impressive. He hit thirty in a year at at Stockton. I think it was fourteen the year before midland. But that's a tough place. They hit especially as a left. Handed hitter Where did you see them? Maybe make some some progress last year and and Where where did that? Kind of power jump conformity. Well he's always had the power you know. That's something that that he possesses but now he opened up. The field had had a little bit of an approach change. We kinda worked on some things more does mindset a little bit of his swing and being able to drive Balsa left Centerfield and once he had the confidence of being able to use the whole field cleaned up his approach and now he just he he was able to just to have an approach. Stick with it knowing that he can hit a ball. Anywhere out of the Ballpark Another thing was just cleaning up his mind. Said he's the guy that works extremely hard. He's really really lives and dies. Used to live and die by every at bat and just really being able to calm him down and simplify things for him And he's one of those guys extremely hard worker. He wants to take as many swim as candidate. Dan You root for those guys because he buses. But he's a great teammate And those things just it. It all came together and click from last year. Which was fun to see him and I was having a great spring and and we'll see yeah he's off to a hot start this spring. I think he leads the team in our RBI's right now with eight But it was bad over four hundred you know going into yesterday what What does he carried over? From last season to this you can see and and how do you think his his power could translate to the To the majors it'll it'll translate to the big leagues talking to him last year when you got up to the big leagues you know. His only focus was to have good. At-bats you know and he had really good at-bats and then I think towards the end. He started you know he wouldn't admit to you but I think he started seeing that he had no home runs and maybe towards the end was really trying to get that one on the board. So it's you know typical of a young player He came up. He was just having good bats and he was hitting doubles and singles and having key pinch shits and stuff like that in an outstanding job and show that he can be hitter but there's power behind there and once he settles in and gets comfortable in the big leagues. You'll see those power. Number's shut up. Sky Bolton who had a fairly productive year last year. Where did you see him? Maybe make some strides well. It is extremely talented. He's one of those guys that has a ton of tools Switch hitter can run through as some power He's one of those guys consistently working on his swing. Last year really worked on his right handed swing even into the spring this year. Which looks really good is one of those guys that just you know He. He can drive the ball out of the ballpark but he can get you basically instill a couple of basis and it's fun to watch when everything's clicking with him. He's one of the most exciting players around Dustin Fowler Another guy he's he's had some tie you look like he was going to be. Maybe the center fielder future here for a little bit. And that he's not fighting to get a rollback Had A little bit of slow spring but a couple of days ago I came through the bases-loaded double which as I said of the spring which probably felt good. But what what How did you assess him last year in? How's he look this way in? And he had to make some adjustments on. There are some things that we needed to work up and clean up with his swing and and he did a great job with it and he was all in bought into it. So it's one of those things where he kinda worked into something last year and had some really good results with it. His strikeout numbers did go up at his home. Run numbers did go and his walks up so it's one of those things that he's such a talented player. One of those talented kid. That can has extremely extremely good hand eye. Coordination can put the ball player. But it's just shrink in the strike zone and being able to control the zone again. But he's a really good player Is One of those guys that can I can see. You know playing playing all three outfield positions. Because he's a very good athlete. Comprising property. Fifteen twenty home runs a year so Is this about him? Getting a consistent opportunity to play and continue working on those things that we're working with him with the swing but he's I liked what he did last year Another guy that had some pretty impressive. Power Number's less was sheldon noisy. Who's competing for the second base job? Here where did you see from him? And and do those power numbers potentially translate over to the majors. Shannon's he's extremely talented hitter He's the guy that shoots a single to right field it can drive. You bought a right Centerfield and if you make a mistake is GonNa hit you. So he's one of those guys that has got the complete package I'd say he's probably twenty home. Run Guy with a high average. I puts the ball in play. He's made strides since our year Nashville. Where the first half sitting coastal one ninety and we had to make a pretty good Adjustment with him as far as swing mechanics and I think the second half of the season in Nashville. He hit like three twenty in the year in two sixty so he just carried on that adjustment to last year continued to hit the ball. Hard and dry balls in the gap and he was rewarded with him last year. But he's very talented Did that adjustment have it all to do with With looking more toward hitting the field toward right center was that always something that was part of his game. That was always something. That's part of his game. He just had a real high leg kick and which got him down it and he's a little bit late so we had just come that thing down. But that's what's so good about him is. His approach is a big part of the field and he doesn't really shy away from it and last year. I mean he had extremely. He upped his totals. Lower to strikeout totals. I mean he's one of those guys that can put the ball in play But he's a talented hitter. That's got some power. I can see him. Hitting forty doubles and hitting twenty home runs Jona himes guy switch hitting catcher. He's competing for the backup job. He spent a little bit of time at Triple A. and put up Some pretty impressive numbers compared to at having not had very super high average in previous minor league seasons What does he offer kind of as a switch hitter as a taller guy behind the plate? I think he kind of surprised everybody last year. You know he got off to Jesus starting midland then. We needed them and triple A. And he came up all he did was hit You know has made some adjustments such a tall guy talented receiver taunts catcher. It never really put it together at the plate and then last year something. Click for You know not so much that what I did I tommy average in midland. Put Him on pretty good plan. And then we kind of touched on some things when you got to triple eight but pretty much for the most most of the season last year we left them alone and he just had a very very good season that gave him a little bit of confidence confidence knowing that he can. You know he has a chance to to to play this game a long time. And he's he's a talented kid does he? is one side of the plate for him stronger than the other Don't necessarily he gives you good at-bats from both sides I think is more and more of his powers from the left side but other than that. It's pretty consistent from both sides of the plate Franklin Baretta get. He's been in the system for a little while and and this is kind of a key sees it is he's competing for a second base job to you. How did he look last year? Last year was good. He got off to a slow start. I think he was a little disappointed by probably being sent down after Japan. So you know. He had made some adjustments in the off season that were beneficial to him so we had to get him back to what he did the year before we kinda changed his setup But once he got going like in. Mahan June it was Franklin Baretta all over again. That guy's uber talented You know he needs to take advantage of the situation because we all know what he can do when he's writing. I think him knowing now that this is his opportunity as and he could be able to take the job and be able to settle and get some everyday playing time and he settles in his makes he makes his D. This lineup even more dangerous with what he can do. Eric Martin's how does Eric Martin's the hidden cost breakdown? Eric Barnes a former hitter. Wow well the guy that. Put The ball in play a lot. You know I try to stay middle of the field I didn't really try to hit for home. Run so I try to stay in the gaps and hit doubles and triples and stuff like that high obey savage and you know put the ball plan would give you a good bad. Is there anything I mean? Having played for a long time and and I'm sure worked with several different. Hitting coaches is there anything that you kind of prioritize take from guys that you learn from worked with that you now try to apply in the womb learning from everybody every single day you know We're lucky enough to have ta Stevenson back and organization. So I'm always talk with him you know. But she's been fantastic. Michael Been Amazing. So I've been fortunate you know to be around some really good baseball people so I just take tidbits of everybody's information and just listen to learn and and I'm constantly trying to learn from these guys and learn from the players and and so I can apply stuff to other guys really nothing specific because I'm always willing to take it as much information as I can. Decipher it and be able to to give it back to somebody. There may need something of that time. Everything's left rejoining us. And plus you got anytime.

"So what are we when I say Either not understood or misunderstood. I'd never heard of steroids until one thousand nine hundred eighty eight with the Olympics and so So there was there was a naive a tape there as well but I think what in in cases where we suspected it. We approached it the way we had approached other drug abuse at the time at in previous which was basically try to urge someone to go to a doctor. Appeal to a moral Again in a general sense that I suspect possession Canseco of using steroids. Yes I did That I suspect McGuire. No I didn't should. I have yet probably so but I think the difference in this is that it's it's it's a top down thing which is is very different. I asked about this story thing too. I was covering covered the rangers in the mid nineties and the night obviously was covering the and I remember talking to a couple of as players in the late nineties early. Two thousands about the issue before testing was instituted. And break before the Belco thing and the two guys who I would say on the as are most potentially Suspected at that time and one of them kind of get who usually answered every question and was very gregarious and accessible and he said Oh look at the time I got to go hit. I hear somebody calling my name. I've got to go and the other one looked me in the eye and gave me ten minute explanation of how people using steroids cheating him in and out of his money and Blah Blah Blah and. I think you'll be not surprised to hear that. Both of them were In the BELCO case and wound up having to testify so There's only so much I think as an executive or as a reporter any anybody you know. We don't have speed power. We don't have lie detectors we can't do any sort of illegal searches So I'm not. I'm not saying that's okay. I think would have been great if MLB had instituted testing earlier when it first became a problem but again then then you're also dealing with the union so it didn't really become a possibility until Mlb decided to participate in the Olympics in nineteen in the two thousand Olympics and the testing really started as a result of of Participation in the Olympics and before that the Pan Am games to to Qualify and so there was one of those well. We're going to do this. I think from MLB but more broadly from the Union was confidential etc etc. But that's royal it started. I think yeah I mean obviously that was also a stain on baseball and and unfortunate but Eventually at least was addressed to think. We're going to have concerns about this issue for a long time as we're dealing with technology now You as we discussed you're kind of involved in the At the with the as on the field product. What do you think the season following to ninety seven when seasons to wild card appearances and with a team that for an ace team has had very little turnover coming into this season? Well really good team last year and I think we have a chance to be better this year particularly with the starting pitching. I remember last year. Billy Sang. Let's just hold on until we get those guys back and see what happens. Say at the deadline And we didn't get off to a great start This year I think we have a chance to be as good at. The beginning of the season has We we often have been at the end of the season. These young pitchers. I don't think get quite as much credit. As as they should. Nationally Puck Lazardo Just the whole group You know Chris Bassett. This is a pretty deep group and You know if they perform the potential. They're young but I think by the end of the season we could have. We could have one of the top handful rotations in the game. I think that you might be right there and I look forward to maybe talking to you about down the Line Sandy Alderson.

"I've said this a lot this off season to a lot of people Chris Bass. It was an amazing person. An amazing competitor last year. He really turned a corner. When last off season we talked about his role? And I basically said you know we said we don't know what it is. You got to be a pitcher you gotta come in with the mindset and one time Last season he called me and said just pitched me whenever I don't care what my role is and I think he turned the corner then and and if you look at Chris Bassett use. I use a team player. He wants to win games. He doesn't share what his role is. I know early in his career. You know you always WanNa start because you think starting glamorous spot in on the team and maybe you struggled a little bit in that role but I think last year when he finally said I'll do whatever and that's probably where he's going going to be at this year we're gonNA come into camp. We're going to give him his innings. We're not just going to make him one inning reliever you know you know I want him to be in the rotate. I want all the guys that we're working as starters to be in the rotation and whatever pans out pans out satellite death or if you even if you want to be a sixth right yeah we can do a lot of different things him and Dan Mangan or both options. So you know from a selfish standpoint. I want them to be good because I want to keep him and Bassett imaginative shown flashes of being really really good. So that's the goal Bassett. Also if there's a you know an idea of May maybe limiting Lazardo pucks innings as necessary. You know coming off of injury years ago but pucks coming back from his second year after. Tommy John Obviously the the the shoulder thing last year facet could wind up really being kind of a guy who helps out in that respect too. I'm assuming he's like five. Would that hybrid club. You know so you just kind of be ready for every situation you might see them go long when they pit we might five and dive somebody and then Bassett finishes out the game. I mean there's a lot of options in in in scenarios that we can do with these guys and that's what versatility brings if you have that versatility you can help us And that's important real quick the state of your bullpen. How do you see things? It's mostly intact you at TJ McFarland. I suspect the team's probably GonNa look for maybe some veteran guys on non-roster deals and We've got some kids potentially and maybe even maintenace potentially a guy who could work in the bullpen How do you see things? Sarah why I think one. We got a lot of strike. Throwers and you love strike throws because now you can depend on all those guys to come in ballgames in situations wins and throw strikes so if we go out and look for somebody else that would be great too but I'm very happy with the state of our bullpen. You know you got petite. WHO's the Tiran down there soria? Those guys got rubber arms. Liam Hendriks had a rubber arm last year wanting to pitch as often as possible and then they came into their own own. And I think you know as a whole on. Our pitching staff gets a little bit underrated. But you don't make the playoffs two years in a row Having a bad pitching staff so we might not be you know elite per se but these guys they compete their butts off in the battle. And that's what's important to me. Well the next time we talk Scott we will well We'll discuss the three batter minimum rule but for now we'll let you go.

"Georgia colleges online graduate business program, Dale dos. And Allen Johnson. Now, guys, you are also talking about the cohort and the kind of educational osmosis. If you will that you were experiencing learning from each other in the group, you guys became not only friends, but comrades in the program working together. Phone calls early in the morning talking. And now from what I've understood off the air when you were explaining that, you often you guys often draw upon each other now after graduation post program, asking questions, business, advice, etc. Can you explain the cohort and the importance of that in this cohort going into the cohort? I looked around and Dale in our obviously by far the oldest people, Nicole ward. So that kind of had a natural attraction and becoming the. Not only partners in this venture. But also in France, you know, outside of that and have remained friends, but I looked around the cohort and all these young people. And I was like the surprising thing is what can I learn from this young female in in the cohort. And man, I was blown away. I mean, these kids are shark. They're really sharp, and I learned a lot from from the cohort the younger people in the cohort, you know, as much as I did for from from Dale. So it was a great experience in working in the different teams working different people from different industries age groups different backgrounds, real learning experience. And it was great. And I was impressed with the the younger classmates. A lot of them were dealing with family conflicts, and scheduling, and and young families and things that I had used as excuses to put off my babies born. Years in the cohort. I think you're right. And you know, I put I put my education off for a while. And you know, here we were surrounded by people who were plowing right through and they were dealing with the distractions of life in in going forward with it. So that was impressive to me. I I felt an obligation as someone who was older within the cohort to to make sure to that you know, that we were sharing our experiences. And and like you said we learned a lot from people of all ages in the court. I think it was it was that virtual classroom. The one thing you mask earlier about, you know, the differences of what we expect it with technology and learning environment that that was one of the things that did surprise me quite a bit as the as the class unfolded was there was a lot more collaboration versus independent learning. So let's talk about how this experience has enhanced your careers going forward. Well, you know, I have always had a goal of of teaching in college. I didn't want to teach school and I've had that opportunity. I haven't haven't reacted to it or done it yet had the opportunity to to teach a a couple of classes just haven't done it yet. But also wanna do business consulting in the consulting world in the industry in master's degrees. Pretty much required. And it is obviously required to teach on the college level. So that was kind of Monto main focuses are two main reasons for going into the program, and it's allowed me to do some things today that that I never would have been able to do I would have been doing, you know, the same thing I've been doing for years, and that was managing logistics and supply chain organizations would go back to the point on a mine Volvo, it was it was a personal goal of mine and not that I just checked off one of my goals. But it was something that I hunger to do and wanted to do. Very very very badly and was able to get it done. But from an experienced imported definitely enhanced the way, I approach my work. It gave me a great deal more. It allowed me to think differently as I approached the business each on on a daily basis. It allowed me to sort of step back and see the business in a much more strategic way. Once again, we're so often dealing with details. Details details on our daily basis in our work. It allowed me to step back and see things a lot more strategic for me. It allowed me to think more outside the box. You do the same thing every day. And you don't get a different perspective. How things can work being in a cohort Goto the masters program. It has taught me now to rely on other resources for information as I come into a project in things like that. So the the the value to me also has been that in this dispatch of resource to have in a different way that I think about things, and you were mentioning earlier, and I brought it back up about the connections that you made and how you can apply those connections in the business world today. Right. And you know, we were talking about earlier Dale is a expert in international logistics of done it before. But he knows ten times more than I do. So if I've got something that comes up in my world about international, logistics. The phone. Call dale. Recently had a situation where I needed some advice related to transportation and transportation tracking. And I went out to Alan texted him and say, hey, let's talk. And so, you know, we you you learn you learn that there's people within the program that you can call on that you can get.
