We believe in each other through and through and, you know, we just, we play hearts at the end. However, the ball goes that day, whether we win or leaves, as long as we play hard, I feel like good things are gonna happen.

"And I feel like a force is present in my life that I'm powerless to stop, and it is the very strange aesthetic preferences of two baseball nerds. I actually thought you were referring to Corbin Burns, who gave up one of the two homers that Jordan hit, because I was going to bring up that Burns has not really looked like himself this season, which is kind of concerning. But yeah, I guess Hopi Milner was the one we snubbed initially because we talked about Hopi Harris and Hopi Milner, who spells Hopi a different way, but a valid way. But a Hopi way. Probably the more uncommon way, not that any Hopi spelling is particularly common these days, but we did makeup. We did a makeup Milner mentioned and noted that Hopi Harris is not the only Hopi in baseball these days. So yeah, we're very pro -Hobi and nice to know that disparities in offensive performance, no obstacle to platonic love. I assume it's platonic love, but still finds a physical manifestation. So long may they smooch. Yeah, because you imagine if anyone is going to give Martina a little kiss, it's going to be one of the pitchers, right? Providing run support. Well, but famously, he is well regarded by that staff, which is part of why he persists in having a regular role, despite the offensive performance. But yeah, I think it's quite nice that actually one of the smoochers would be a fellow hitter, you know, just a little kiss. Yeah, right. Jordán is the one who's providing run support, which probably also endears him to Astros pitchers. I'm sure it endears him to everyone on the Astros. I'm sure that they are all, and some of them might be sitting there going like, how do I ask for a little kiss? Right. Yeah, we've talked so much about post -home run rituals this year and home run celebrations in a dugout. And this is just between two members of the team, as far as I know. It's not a coordinated, orchestrated, choreographed kind of celebration, but it could spread, right? This could become the Astros thing, although it's sort of more special if it's just the two of them, really. So I encourage any Astro who wants to take part to do so. Anyway, this was an important moment. And another important moment, although a sadder one, I suppose, is that Michael Bauman's prediction did belatedly finally kind of come true. So his prediction in our preseason bold predictions pod that an animal would die on the field during a game. I think he's specified that an animal would kill another animal. And I suppose that a human is an animal also. And that happened. So we talked about a close call, which was fatal to a bird, but did not quite satisfy the conditions of Michael's prediction the other day, because while warming up, Zach Gallin killed a bird just to throw in the outfield with a curveball. But it was not during a game. No. And killed makes it sound as if he had intent. Yeah, no. It's not premeditated. It's not a fit of anger. I realize that there are ways of killing without intent. But killing makes it sound like he was like, screw that bird, which it doesn't seem like that. But it had the same effect. It was bird slaughter, basically. It was bird slaughter. Poor bird. And we had another instance of bird slaughter that occurred during a game. Because Will Brennan of the Cleveland Guardians, he grounded a ball to third, and it bounced off a bird. It bounced off a bird. It was just sitting there in the baseline, basically, or maybe a little inn, and was minding its own bird business. Bird business. And then was struck by a ball, and hopefully, like the bird that was struck by Zach Gallin's curveball, knew nothing about this. Right, yeah. Everything went dark, and we hoped the bird didn't suffer. It was sort of unceremoniously shoveled off the field, which I guess that's how you have to handle it. And Will Brennan, he did appear to react in a ruthless way in his face. In a gleeful way. Yeah, I couldn't tell. I think it was a like, ee, kind of way. I don't know if it was gleeful. No. I will say that I briefly was prepared to engage in a conspiracy theory about this, Ben. Because when you first watch the video, you see the ball make its way to the outfield. And then they cut back to the infield, and there's the bird. It's a dead bird on the ground, right? Yeah. And you can see people start to react. And so then I was like, very briefly, I was like, the bird was already dead. You know, it was a dead bird. Yes. Somehow had been missed by the grounds crew. Dead bird. Already dead, meaning who knows how it died, meaning Bauman gets no points, right? But then the camera pans back further to show Brennan at first base, and you're like, oh, he killed that bird. Yes, yes. No denying it. That is the face of a man who has recently engaged in bird slaughter. And it's a dead bird, you know? And everyone involved is like making a face like, you know what it is? It's a dead bird. That's what their face says. He did tweet an apology after the game. To the bird? He said, I truly am sorry, at PETA and bird enthusiasts, he added PETA. He did not actually apologize to the bird or to the bird's loved ones or anything. The bird doesn't have the capacity to make his mentions weird for a couple of days, but some of those other entities you've named perhaps do. That bird may have had a family for all we know. And Will Brennan did not directly apologize to the bird, but did apologize to PETA and bird enthusiasts and said an unfortunate sacrifice. I mean, the person, you know, the person who really looks delighted by this whole thing, as I'm watching the video back again, is Gabriel Arias, who's just like got this face like... You know, he's got a... face. But yeah, I like how he's trying to get out ahead of the potential ramifications of his bird slaughter. It's a funny thing because it's like on the one hand, you would think the birds on the bird app would be able to like read the tweets, but also they're birds. You know, they can't read Ben famously. They can't read. If they're crows, they can recognize people and be very smart and collect little shiny stuff. So I don't... I'm not here to impugn birds. Birds are great. I am the daughter of two wingspan enthusiasts. Uh -huh. Well, Brennan apologized to them. Yeah, I need the wingspan people to keep doing expansions of different kinds of birds because such a reliable gift to the moms, you know, it's like, well, here are new birds. I saw a really cool crane in my neighborhood a little while ago and I took a picture of it and sent it to my mom because she likes birds. Her response, nine point bird, you know, so she's really into wingspan. Wingspan is great. Everyone should, you know, if you like birds and also games, like that one's one to check out. But yeah, they keep doing expansions. You get all kinds of new birds and it's great because man, Ben, they let people name birds the craziest stuff. Birds have such names. So anyway, here we are.

"Had in common with our next team, Texas is good base running team, speedy, lots of stolen bases, and this might be another thing you get a clear picture on once camp really gets going. But do you think that they will be aggressive in taking advantage of some of the new rules, whether it be bigger bases or the pick off attempt rule? Are they in a good position to push the envelope with the personnel that they have? Yeah, for sure. I mean, they were that team last year before these types of things were implemented. So I think this can only work in their favor. They have guys that have speed. They have Jimenez straw and Quan are the three fast guys, but then you have José Ramírez, who might not be the same sprint speed wise, but is one of the most intelligent base runners in the majors, and it figures out the perfect balance of being aggressive in the safest way possible. So I think it's going to be something that especially for those four guys can only work in Cleveland's favor. And so if you have in guys running all over the place, I mean, last year you saw how often they went first to third. It just seems like base stealing is going to be up, obviously, across the league. But I think specifically for the guardians, they have really the target audience for this. I know that, you know, the guardians once again have enviable depth in their farm system. They have a couple of guys toward the top who seem like they're going to be impact big leaguers, but I'm curious, you know, as they go through the year and potentially have to address, you know, whether it's funding another starter or just the usual attrition you get on the big league roster. Are there guys beyond sort of the top of that system, the espinos, the nailers, the rocio's, the other Logan Allen, who are viewed as sort of will not move, don't even think about asking for them and trade prospects or their other guys who you get the sense they're particularly high on. The biggest thing with Cleveland is that they never say that anyone is untouchable. Everyone is able to have a conversation. Now, other guys, some guys would cost, just way too much that any team would ever give up and that to Cleveland is untouchable, but they listen to every single thing, which is why they are nonstop working, which is why their front office has figured out ways to get crafty and some of these trades that they've been able to make that have turned out when people maybe weren't expecting it to turn out that way. I would say that as close as you get to untouchable, it seems like Gavin Williams and Daniel espino have to be the two that you just want to get to the big leagues you want to see them here. But the big question mark for me is is a guy like Brian rocio untouchable because of all the middle infielders that they have. Right. They at least got rid of Owen Miller, which was part of that process, and I don't say that as a slight to Owen Miller. I say that as they have too many middle infielders who are ready for the big leagues that have no home. And so you have Tyler Freeman Gabriel Arias and Brian rocio right now who could all be in the middle infield, but then you also have Ahmed Rosario on Andre cheminis there and neither of them really ever get days off. So how does this all work? How long can you just keep burying these guys? So my biggest question is, do they just keep hanging on to all these guys or will those be moved? So I think that that's just an area that they have of just too many guys in one spot, but because of their lack of catching depths, I think bone nailers definitely untouchable. Yeah, you'd think the combination of very young major league roster and also stacked farm system would suggest that there might be some moves to be made there. And they just, they're not doing it yet. So we're like, okay. When that guardians spread off, has made trades so that they've often made some very wise ones. So they've also done a good job of developing players internally. And I wanted to ask about just really it's kind of incredible continuity in that guardian's front office, you know, going from Hart to Antony to churn off and Shapiro in there too. I mean, it's sort of the same chain of front office people, even though there's been a lot of turnover on the roster. So it seems like that stability, I guess you only have stability of things are working out well, but it seems like that stability is probably something of an institutional advantage too. Yeah, I mean, I think it only can be. And it seems like the chemistry within the front office is really just unlike anything that anyone's really ever heard of. And the way that they work so closely with Terry Francona, I mean, Tito tries to tell us all the time. You guys don't understand. This doesn't happen anywhere else. The way that they're so open with me, the way that we're all involved, the way that we over communicate. It's just, I think, that the vibe, the chemistry, everything that they have within this front office, just plays dividends into why they're so successful and why they can figure things out because they can, they're also close, they know what they're all thinking, they can read each other's minds. I'm sure at this point because they've been around each other for so long. And they figure everything out and they are able to find the small things that other people maybe don't see and that's why some of these trades end up working out and Tito says that every time you ask, if he was with any other team, he probably would be done by now, but he just loves these guys so much. Loves this front office, this organization so much that he's like, I'm not going anywhere else. This is where I am until I'm done. Yeah, I wanted to ask you about Tito and sort of where he is career wise and maybe he doesn't want to be done, but is there a thought to sort of a known sunset because he's obviously had some health issues some of them quite serious over the last couple of years that have kept him away from the team. So what's his state of mind right now? If you would have asked me this last year, the year before, I would have predicted that he would have been done in the very near future. I mean, he was in rough shape. 2020 was brutal. He was in the ICU for a stint, he was really just not well. He thought it would be better in 2021 really wasn't. I mean, it was okay, but he then he still had to step away at the end of July, had hip surgery, had foot surgery on the staph infection that he had. There were so many things and he just wasn't really, he wasn't enjoying the game as much.
