"Buy? You got a car? I want to tell you Your neighbours is not going to give you value because I didn't call you. You called me so I know you want to sell it right? But an entire world. I mean, they don't have to say hail indoors on the market. The empire will everyone know so indoors on the mark. I'm not goingto. I'm gonna look at the same time. The Indians and the Indians played this game last year unless you give us your ever we want. We're not gonna deal. They may do that. Would you be absolutely stupid? And no one's going to give you what you want, because I know you're trying to sell, I think, And I'm just throwing this out there because I know the Dodgers minor league system better than others. I think the doctors would be willing to have Gavin Lux and Tony Gonsouland and a third player to get wind or sea and we've had this discussion. We've had this talk. I'm not Because I don't know what Gavin looks could end up being It doesn't matter. But it does not. But because I know how good Lindores I know that I can put secret. Third, I can resign. Justin Turner, put him in first input Maximum. See it Second off certain. I have a great infield of Turner months even door. And Seger and I have two former ale MBPs early Zombie candids inland, Oren Metz. True If I wasn't as good as I already am, If I needed something to put me over the top Okay, but I'm not. I don't. I'm tired of teams and teams do this all the time, and it pisses me off to no end. They win a championship. And generally speaking, they don't. But they don't put the pedal to the metal anymore. They go. They ease off they go. Hey, we won. I think more reason to put your pedal to metal More reason to show your dominance, but window is only so big. The Cubs didn't do that. The Cubs didn't add really anybody After they won the championship. They thought they were going in the World Series the next three or four years. They haven't been back since 2016. But the Dodgers are in a unique situation where I can't I I need to make my pitching better. I don't need my position Players better I, but I don't think they have the money. They say you know what? I can still make my pitching, But I could go out and sign forever. Bauer. That doesn't have anything to do with Linda or I know, But my thing is, I don't need to get rid of Lux to make myself better to win to win the World Series. I'm already there. But I'm already there. But I want to make myself so much better than know that nobody has a chance. But not only that. But I want to stop another team. I want to stop. The Braves were going out and getting Francis Golan Door or the Yankees from going in because you put Linda on the Yankees off. Suddenly, Yankees are better than we are. Look what the Yankees pitching is. I'm not worried about the Yankees again like you couldn't beat the race like the Dodgers Yankees have the money to go out and get Trevor Bauer. They did They have the money to go out and get Marcus Stroman if that's who they want, But the Yankees couldn't beat the Rays. I'm not worried about the game, but what I'm saying is they're going to make that improvement there as well. I need to keep as much as I want man door. I also need to keep him away. He's going to go to a team like the Angels. I'm fine with that, because he's not gonna be the guy who actually put Angels over the top. See, I'm not I don't. I only worry about my team and myself. I'm not worried about you getting him because that's what the Clippers did and look what I got to him the lip. The Clippers went out and got Reggie Jackson and Marcus Morris and all those guys To keep them away from the Lakers without underwear. Everyone I knew that's where they got marquees Morris. They did it to keep him away from Lakers, But you didn't make yourself better. You're worried about what the Lakers were doing. That's what they're doing. Also, by the way, now with John Rhonda, would I get to the embassy to to kind of tie each other Titans together? Nothing is just going to be a strange off season. No matter how you look at it in every sport, it's It's gonna be O n ba free agency and draft that with time is going to be out. It's going to exciting And the funny thing is, is it sounds ridiculous. It's November 2nd. I mean, the season has ended, like three weeks ago, but The draft is window November 18 18 and then the season, maybe starting in less than a month, which means training camps have to start one a week. Everything they'll start probably beginning of December. They always want eight weeks. They want to give you eight weeks to let you know we're starting the season and give you without her having weeks. That's what they wear already beyond. There were seven weeks until December 20. That's why they put the date out there to say, Hey, this where we're going to start. I really think it's going to start in January. Unless they go. The problem is they start in January. They're going to say we'll start in January. It's gonna be a 50 game season. Nobody wants a 50 goes over. Don't go six sixties of 60 minutes. They've already floated the 50 game season idea that no one wants it..

"Oh, an interesting Look at numbers with Castellani. You get this pitch in tow Lux outside to Oh, no. Lefties have only a dozen hits off of him this year. In Nearly 60 a bat. So you're talking around a 200 batting average. They have five homers. And four other extra base hits. So Nine of the 12 hits have been extra base it swing and a miss by Lux, and it's two on one Which again Gets back to the conversation, but black and I had on buddies show About command because I guarantee you. Most of those extra base hits were On breaking pitches, and there's another breaking ball. That's going to go to the second deck by Gavin Lux, and it's for nothing. Dodgers No. We talked about the last five games at Coors Field. The offense that hadn't come around the starting pitching had certainly held up its in. But Castellani obviously struggling early tonight, in particular this second inning with that. Second two run homer. Tough, Tio learn on the job in the big leagues. They're not going to cut you any slack and When you Have allowed 11 homers in less than 36 innings of pitching your You're not executing the way you think you're capable certainly, And your team wants you to accomplish. Gavin Lux was over his last 14. Before that home run. Swinging at the first pitch, popping it up behind home plate. Austin Barnes the catcher, but it goes behind the screen for a strike. Or want Barnes. He checked his swing, and the count evens one on one. Swing and a foul out of play. Well retired the Dodgers in order in the first inning, but Max Muncy. With a leadoff walk in His second inning. Two homers in a double have accounted for the four runs ball in the dirt to win, too. And the home runs. We're not just got their home runs, they were tattooed..

"That is. Amazing numbers considering it has to log about one hundred innings to get considered for this. He's a six foot three. Big. Pitcher off the mound. Why not try boosting up what you know is a concern as well. He's going to be a pitcher for the future. Let's see what he has. You can live with the guys but maybe you'd WanNa bring them up and throw them out of the bullpen a little bit right away. That's fine as well to that doesn't bother me as long as we start getting him a little experience because that back end, the bullpen take a pretty big hit with Kirby. Yates. Being out for extended time pomeranz being out for extended time. Let's get these pitching prospects up here and do something to help the team out a little bit. And then the other guy that I am just feeling a little bad for. Because we probably assume that he was GONNA up. Quite, some time ago but the dodgers offerings kind has just really really good. The number one dodgers prospect number two overall. Little shortstop second baseman. Gavin Lux. Just try to find a way on their onto the roster he's dominated in the minors. Youngest player ever to pinch. Homerun is big. League postseason at Twenty nineteen. Some fun moments there a lot of people probably thought he was going to be rookie of the year this year running away with it in the National League. He hadn't arrival summer camp. There's still some undisclosed reasons as to why he didn't make the big league roster. It it's not hitting. It's not his hitting ability. He's got power he's got speed he can make impact on a club. And he's just going to give you more production. There's more to the story that we necessarily don't know. Why he's not getting his chances in the bigs but. It's hard to question the dodgers at this moment because. They're one of the best teams in baseball. Not a lot of things are going wrong for them. Right now is they're twenty and eight. Of scored one, hundred, fifty, six runs nine at one in their last ten. Do they need him? No, they don't need him. They have ninety nine percent chance of making the playoffs right now going the rest of the season. But. It's a guy that. You don't WanNa waste him away forever. Gavin. Lux. Wondering if we're GONNA see him come up so that's our nine guys receive all these rookies coming. We've seen a lot of great look rookie production Louis Roberts went good guy. Lewis has been good. We've seen Dustin may for the daughters there's been some dominant great rookies. Guys that I think that could be coming up sometime soon, and unfortunately, they may not be in the rookie of the year race now that we're getting close to halfway through the season but still. Got A lot of names to players that can still come up and contribute, and I'm just surprised on how much we've seen from rookie. So that's going be it for the last segment here on the GMC baseball podcasts on your. Colin Manley. PODCAST on Sunday and Wednesday I want to thank you guys so much for listening needs a great deal, and if you could subscribe to the podcast leave Nice review, you have no idea how much that means to us here back from fans get any type of feedback that we can maybe even ideas or thoughts on things going forward hated you love my power rankings or would you change something?

"R A Giants will counter with Johnny Cueto is almost a year away from return from Tommy John Surgery. Giants will be without Buster Posey all year and without Brandon Belt in Evan Longoria to start And Gabe Kapler, by the way, was the Dodgers director of player development in before he was the manager of the Giants, and the A's will go on Friday, Frankie Montas against the Angels Andrew Heaney. Get their season started. Net Bloody joins us next on the sports later now backto Tolbert Kruger and Brooks baby on KNBR, 1045 and 6 80 sports leader The opening date, everybody Larry Krueger with you on a Thursday, Tolbert doing some golfing up in Tahoe rods hanging with family little summer vacation. Marty Laurie's going to join us at four o'clock four on I should have forgot to mention Farhaan. Will join us at five and Ned Coletti is with us. Former Dodgersgeneral manager Former Giants assistant general manager doing some bang up media work in Southern California teaching at pepper dine A man who is very, very busy and he's with us on the human guests line to talk opening day. Hey, Ned. Hey, Larry, In a tradition, you know? Oh, man, you know, it's good to hear your voice. I we were talking about opening day memories. One of the ones that came up, Ned. Was 2002. And that you were there for that. You would just sign Barry Bonds to that five year, $90 million contract. And he's up there hit two home runs David Bell, it went deep. Laban went eight that day, and the Giants crushed Kevin Brown and the Dodgers 9 to 2. What are your memories of it? I remember sitting with Brian and sit together, watching that game and thinking we had a chance to have a special team that year, and as it turned out, we did not quite a specialist to tend to 12 to 14. But very special group and that was David Bell. I think that was his only year with the Giants, but really Akiba former force and, of course, Berry coming up that historic earlier before. It was always good to open against the Dodgers. You know it was. Ah, let's get started right here with the team. Me. We always seem to be chasing pair wise, but For a long time dominated and sealed Well, let's talk about the Dodgers. They are in some ways. Consider the class of baseball right now. They haven't won a World Series title since I graduated High school in 1988 but they are projected to win the most games this year. They're incredibly deep. Uh, this young kid Gavin Lux, who's a superstar in the making at second base, you know, wasn't 100% of beginning a camp And instead, they said, you know what? Go back more seasoning and will turn Second over to Chris Taylor and Munsey and Kiki Hernandez Howard that how do you see the Dodgers coming into this year? It seems like that they're in a full world, Siri's or bust type mode. I agree. They obviously everybody got almost to the end of spring training 1.0 and then took four months away, and when they came back, they came back and tremendous condition. Both mentally and physically for the task in hand. Um I don't know when people say this all the time in sports. I can't remember past. Well, I can't remember the last team that had as much depth. As this group. Does, Gavin lectures used as you properly build a future great and a MLB player sent down to the secondary can't the other day They get three guys that can play second base, and, uh and a lot of them would play course were screaming when its teeth a Kris Taylor match. Munson former. They just got so much death, and then you add the D H to the national, which I don't know what tune that is better prepared for the B itch. Then they are, I think gave Rod which every day one of his challenges as the manager was OK. Who do I sit today? Well, the PH gives him four more. That's the book. How's position players? And today they asked us to put together 30 man roster. You put down 35 names in a heartbeat. And now you got a tux struggle trying to get down to 30 there, sometimes at 25 they struggle getting 30 but from the opposite direction. I think the team is built to win, but it's the best team in the National League. Winter is the best team in baseball, and that last week about God will tell us that on paper, the Dodgers probably should easily win their eighth straight National League Western Division title. But Ned, these games are played on paper, and I was just looking at this The other day. If you go back to his recently is 2018 just a couple seasons ago, and you looked at the Dodgers. They were still loaded, Maybe not quite as deep as they are now, but they still had a huge talent base and they went 30 and 30 in the 1st 60 games in 2018 so As much a cz we'd like to say, You know, this is the way it's going to go mixing the pandemic and all the new regulations and the D H and the three batter minimum rule and all the changes that were going to see this year. On then maybe even inject a little bit of pressure. If you don't get off to the start. You want anything could really happen here, huh? Well. I can't disagree completely with you, but but I don't see that happening to this group. As I watched pitching throughout the league the way they grind out of bets. The games are too long for the opposing pitching staff most of the night. They cannot make consistently not just throw strikes, which, for some young pitchers is a struggle. But the throw effective strikes and and I just I just don't see this team. Getting off to a 30 30 start to 60 games. That year. They were coming out of the World Series appearance that I had taken the seven games with Houston. I think any team that does that. I think they do have a little bit of a letdown the next season because they look ahead and they see six straight months, 162 dams and then realize that their history is really going to be written the last couple days of September week of September and the month of October. When you look at this a 16 game home stretch, which is one of those today the National League that every teen fashion West, you get five teams tied thirst in theory today when a 60 game sprint to the finish I don't see them getting off to a cup starts. I see them dominant As I looked through that schedule. I don't know how many times are really going to get beat. That's the way it is one and then they won't have David Price. But and and what's the deal with the kid? The lefty Maia's? He not. Is he not starting the year because I mean his stuff. I saw him just in an inter squad game to the day's thrown 99 miles an hour. He's dirty. He's going to be an excellent pitch Any picture? What? Last year? He is right handed. He could pitch out of the pen or start. They've got enough depth to give him a chance to continue to work on delivery was a little bit inconsistent release point Bring in a squad games and during the 31 exhibition of parents that he had a little bit inconsistent with his release, pointing with swatted that's gotta get tightened up a bit, but they've got they've got time to do it, and I think that he is nasty. He is almost like a A little bit of there's a little bit of Walker viewer. Dustin, May we got a little bit of a great tomb has got a little bit of edge to him, and he got up a mean fastball, and I'm really very slider. So Just a matter of time before you got him in the next pan later began, perhaps because he's got the courage to do that also. Ah, rotation. What do you think it's going to take? You've been with both organizations. What's it going to take for the Giants are a rich team, the Giants have they own their ballpark outright. It mints money. They have this Mission Rock project going south of the ballpark. It's one of the biggest real estate deals in the history of the city of San Francisco. I mean, the Giants ownership group is enormously wealthy as wealthy is almost any on DH. And so what is it going to take from the Giants perspective in your mind to get to the point where they are running neck and neck with the Dodgers? Because they should they should have. It really should be a baseball. Question because the finances I don't want to say they're a push, but the Giants have money. You know what? It's a great point. And I was there back in the candlestick days and back in the back, then was called Paco Park. I spent 11 years in the city five at Candlestick and then six at the new place. It was a new place, so I've seen the evolution of it and you know, it's it's really cool to hear what you say about another mission Rock product. Project and what that means to the city in the organization. I've seen them grow on become magnificent, and it's in its grandeur, and its success is in a lot of ways. Now..

"Here's your host met parole. All right, one of the things we thought might happen with the bubble restart for the MBA injuries. The Memphis Grizzlies has just announced. Justise Winslow. Has fell. He did. He fell during practice today during on inter squad scrimmage and A medical evaluation revealed a hip injury that will cause him to miss the rest of the season. Now Winslow is expected to make a full recovery, but That's another player. We saw Marvin badly. The third Injuries, but I believe it was yesterday and he's being evaluated for whether he'll be able to play. So that's bad news for Memphis. I mean, obviously, he'll be back come December, when the MBA re starts up again for the 2122 season, but Naturally unfortunate for the Memphis Grizzlies. Ah, Winslow out now for the rest of the bubble, And so injuries are gonna happen in sports, right? But there was a concern that there would be a lot of them. Given the fact that players are just getting back into contact and getting back into working out consistently and getting back into playing in BA basketball. I don't think there's been a rash of injuries, but we have seen a couple of him now pop up. Not during the bubble practice is getting ready for what will happen here on July, the 30th in July 31st when the MBA comes back a little over a week from now we get fully rolling here. With the With the MBA. Gavin Lux, No one is telling me this question. Gavin Lux, and you may have better I did not. But Gavin Lux was a guy who you could bet on for the National League Rookie of the year. He was one of the odds on favorites to win it. He did not make the opening day roster, and he's been option to quote the minor leagues. There are no minor leaks. So where is he going? Like I want to know where it is. Gavin Lux go. Does he go home to play like, you know, and will be the show on Xbox. Like where do you go? If you get up if you're out off the 40 man roster If you don't make the team, you weren't part of the 60 man roster, right? I mean, I gotta ask Bobby Sylvester this from betting pros and fantasy prose coming up. Maybe he hasn't answered. I.

"If you're just joining us. We talked about the latest with Major League. Baseball and the Corona Virus Update their plans on twenty twenty Not much has changed since last week but A few recent tidbits worthy of discussion. And now in this segment. We're going to give you guys an update on. Mlb The players league the video game mlb the show one individual from every team representing themselves in a round robin style followed by playoff format. All thirty teams. It was a lot of fun honestly. I I wasn't sure going into this. How much excitement or energy would be put into this adventure? If it'd be worthy of watching you basically took place over the entire month of April gave us a glimpse into baseball. Allowed us to talk a little bit of baseball during these trying times. When you know we're we're grasping at anything here just to get you know something back to discuss and something back on the diamond. But the end of the regular season it found that the top eight were indeed. Blake's now Joey Gallo Bogus Shet Jeff McNeil. Dwight Smith Junior was fist number. Six Lucas G Alito number. Seven happened number eight Gavin Lux and then six through eight were all nineteen and ten which was one game better than canal in May at Eighteen and eleven to make the playoffs and they were ranked based on I believe run differential. It was run scored followed by runs allowed so it wasn't run differential. Excuse me it was run scored and runs allowed was the tiebreaker there but It basically made Gavin looks the eighth seed. He went up against Blake's now he put up a good fight Gavin Lux was a good ballplayer and had success early on but then as other players continued to improve and there were a lot of players that got better throughout the entire month. I play twenty nine games of anything. And you're going to be better in game twenty nine than you were in game two well. That was clearly evident as we see. Somebody makes a run a little bit later here but when it came to Snell in Lux Lux wasn't as good as making those adjustments and carrying on play but gave. Snell a run for his money. These were best to add three game once now. One three two two game two. Snell one five to four for a two. Nothing series win and advancing into the semi-finals next step. We had number two Joey. Gallo against number seven Ian Hap and this was our first surprise. I talked about a potential upset last episode the old twelve five thirteen to four game. Well it looked like Joey. Gallo was on his way with a three two victory in game one however Ian Happ came back in game two with a four to three victory which ultimately led to a deciding game three in which he got out to an early start ended up winning the game seven. Nothing and you could see. Joey was very upset at the time. He was trying to maintain composure up for everybody watching on national television but he was genuinely pissed he was not abby with what happened there and being ousted in the first round after going twenty three and six during the regular season he gets beat twice in the best two out of three next step we had two or three seed. Boba Shet against the sixth seed Lucas G Alito from the Chicago White Sox and another upset in round one Let's see game one Gio Lido one. Three two two Bobishenko came back with a one. Nothing victory to force a game three and then the upset in game three G Alito Five Bobishenko three and G Alito He. He was one of those individuals who was tied at one thousand nine and ten. But you could clearly see improved from his first Games until the end and that's why he was able to to beat. Boba shed who clearly again being a younger contestant plays. Mlb The shell on a regular basis so g Alito Bounce back and was able to advance in the first round your last quarter-final matchup was between Jeff. Mcneil of the New York. Mets Dwight Smith Junior of the Baltimore Orioles Smith Junior. Certainly one of the more entertaining individuals especially when playing with himself and he found himself having a lot of success when he was playing. And that's where it was fun watching. Somebody play video game and hitting home runs and being like. Oh Yeah. That's actually. It was fun but McNeill. The four CD was able to take care of business in a few low scoring games. He won game one three two two and then game two three two one. So that pitching staff for the mets really comes through and help him advance to the semifinals but in regards to the playoffs in the format here. They did not recede between the quarter finals and the semi finals depending on which sport it is. You follow the one through eight. I believe it was hockey for awhile would receipt and then you would play based on the higher seed The flyers as the seven eight rebel to get home ice during one of the playoff runs. Well this was more of a bracket formation to wear number one blake's now matched up against number four Jeff McNeil instead of number seven Ian Hap and then on the other side of the bracket number six versus number seven g Alito versus HAP-. So a little bit of a top heavy matchup when it came to the semifinals. And you knew at least a six seed was ultimately going to make a run and be Cinderella to make it all the way to the final so in the first semifinal match up lakes now versus Jeff McNeil Game One. It was the surprise. Mcneil four to one. That was the surprise of the tournament up until this point. I know he's had upsets over there but snell really running through is his opponents at this point wasn't sure if anybody was going to be able to beat him well snell apparently got upset and refocused inbetween matchups because that mets pitching that had given up two runs one one and one run. They got walloped. The next couple of game splits now came back one eight two zero him game two and then seven zero in game three so Mcneil puts up a four spot in game one and then can't get on the board in Games two and three with Snell in that pitching staff and Tampa Bay and really the depth of the rotation showed out there and Games two and three and holding McNeil. Scoreless really didn't stand a chance so blake Snell the one seat advances to the finals again. He had a regular season of twenty four and five and then being four and one up until this point that makes him twenty eight and six on the year. We go over to the other semi-finals where was to Cinderella's where they were going to find out which one fit into the shoe that was going to make it to the finals. Let's see we had in HAP and Lucas G Alito game. One G Lido was on top eight to four hitters matchup their in game one then it was followed up by pitchers duel in game. Two one to nothing win by Ian Hap and both of these guys again in nineteen and ten in the regular season both won the first round in three games going again to a decisive game. Three here in the semi finals where Alito ultimately pulled it out three to one the pitching depth Chicago was able to come through and hold hap- to only one run in game. Three after one run was enough in Game Two G. Lido was able to make the adjustments offensively and get back into the winners circle so that led us to a finals. Matchup number one blake's now versus number six Lucas G Alito. Jalil again being one of those guys who early on struggled a Blake. Snell hammered Emma earlier in the regular season. These two actually played the test match up before this entire tournament as well so this was their fifth or sixth and seventh times playing against each other. They had a little bit of familiarity to themselves and watching this one today on Sunday may third. This really wasn't that close from the start game one. It was five to one blake's now but he put up a three spot in the first inning and these are only three inning games so a quick start is extra crucial. Goes up three dollars and wins the game. Five to one then in game two G. Lido was able to bounce back. Throw the ball a little bit better but Blake. Snell still found a way to win three two two at home in Tampa Bay winning both of those home games then they go on the road and the pitching depth. The socks. Just. Don't have the starters to run with. Tampa Bay and Blake. Snell won the series three two zero. This was a best of five in the championship series and it was a three nothing. Sweep for Blake's now as he won game three six to nothing so snell finishes seven and one in the playoffs. His overall record is thirty. One in six clearly impressive clearly plays the show in his free time and he was also very entertaining. So shout out to Blake's now for not only be good at real baseball being good at video game baseball and then also being entertaining along the way. Because if you're going to be one of the guys we have to watch you might as well have to keep us entertained. Shout out to all the guys who participated in this even the guys at the bottom of the list who were very good and got beat around it was. It was a nice little break from baseball. And a nice behind the scenes peek into a lot of these guys kinda lives and personalities and things like that so shout out the baseball for another successful event. Hopefully they can continue that into the onfield product in twenty twenty but that wraps up the second segment here of the MCC baseball podcast brought to you by the MC podcast network.

Yes a little bit of no in two thousand eighteen. He played in AA AND AAA. He hit the cover off the ball in double a hit. Three fourteen hit four forty on base percentages. Oh P S was over a thousand. They moved him up about halfway through the year two AAA where he still performed. Well but the average wasn't as high as it wasn't aa but his triple A. numbers in his big league. Numbers are eerily similar. Listen to this here. Nineteen in the bigs eighteen and triple A. Average to sixty two sixty on base percentage three fifty eight three fifty five. Slugging percentage five eighty five five eighty three for her no. Ps of nine forty one and nine forty one. So for the last year and a half. He's to sixty header with a three fifty five on base percentage in it Oh. Bp of nine forty one pretty insane now he hit a total of thirty. Six home runs across twenty eighteen. That number went up to fifty three last year. Which was a rookie record? One hundred and twenty rb is which is why he ran away with it. But I'm just saying that You know we didn't see these power. Number's being there. But we did see their performance in the miners. We did get a little bit of a glimpse into the future that we should have saw this common at least a little bit from Petah Lonzo sell transitioning into some of the names here for twenty twenty and what we can see or expect to see at the top of the list. I gave you guys a top three then. I have a value pick in a long shot. Pick to talk about who I think could potentially take home. The award starting out at the top is one of the overall top prospects in baseball. And that's Gavin Lux who is a second Baseman for? The dodgers has pencilled in to be the full time starter. This year going back to last season he hit three ninety two in AAA in forty nine games so he didn't just do it for a couple of weeks that's upwards of about two months fifty games in sixty days about two months hitting three ninety. Two is very impressive. Yes he doesn't have the power numbers I talked about it. He plays second base so he's a little bit more of the scrap doubles hitter. Gap Guy Doubles triples speed prospect. He's the number. Two overall prospect in baseball depending on which outlet. You're looking at which scouting service you're communicating with the one drawback that I do see on Gavin is. He did get a taste in the majors. Last year. He played in twenty three games in the big league level and only hit two forty in those games now. Three Ninety two to two forty is a big big dip. And I don't know if Gavin was putting a little bit too much pressure on himself. If he was trying to perform at that high of a level he knew. The dodgers wanted him for a little bit of a spark. He wasn't gonNA play every day and it just I think a little bit too much pressure on himself was the reason there and I think now. Hey second base is your job. This team's going to win. One hundred games were loaded with MVP's scattered throughout the roster all stars all throughout the roster. Just play your game hit the baseball. Don't try to do too much so I think we're GONNA see a little bit closer to that. Three Ninety two effort to forty effort we saw at the big league level. But next up I have Mackenzie Gore left handed pitcher for the San Diego padres. He's he's penciled in I. You know now that the season is shortened. I would believe or I would assume that he's going to be up and be ready for when they start to get to go. There was talks that he could start and AAA but a big left-handed pitcher averages ninety three to ninety five on his fastball. So doesn't overpower you or blow you away with speed but ninety five able to locate over one hundred right down the middle. I'll take any day of the week. He's got four plus pitches all of them. Curveball slider changeup fastball. I believe it is is the repertoire for the four of them all plus. It's just if the padres make a push this year if their offense with two TS Haas Mer Machado. If they can put it together he can make a little bit of a run. I think Mackenzie is going to be there at the end of the year and the conversation next up I have Carter boom third baseman for the Washington nationals third base nationals. That's right Anthony. Rundown moves onto the LA angels. That means Carter is going to move right in last year at three. Oh three in AAA if he continues to play a solid third base for Washington. And if he gives you anything close to it. Anthony ran down. Gave you last year if he ends up in the middle of that lineup with one? Soto making a push you're gonNA say. Hey No wonder they didn't pay rent. Don't all this money they got this kid kai boom? Who can come in here and perform? I'M NOT GONNA say up to that level but close to that level for certainly a fraction of the price and that's that would be worthy of rookie of the year conversation. So NEXT UP MY VALUE. Pick a little bit further down if you're looking at the sports books wherever you're at out there. If it's legal do your thing. It is here so I continued to bring it up in passing Dylan. Carlson Saint Louis. He's outfielder probably going to play left field for them he was more of a high school. Phenom strictly a left handed hitter now. Came out as a switch hitter out of high school. Tried it a few years early on here in the minor leagues sin and they seem to stick him now on the left side where he started defined his groove last year at the high levels in the minor leagues so a full off season of dedicating to strictly left handed hitting another year of confidence. In that side of the plate. I think could lead to a nice year for dental and but my long shot. I'm not sure they may not be a best bet. That's why it's a long shot. Is Joey Bart The catcher out of Georgia tech number two overall pick a few years back. He's with San Francisco. He's going to take over for Buster Posey now. I know Posey's behind the dish supposed to be behind the dish now but if this Joey Bark kid comes in hitting the cover off the ball you can move posey down the first base sooner than later and now you're having a conversation here about Bart behind the plate if this giants team isn't at the bottom of the NFL west. He's going to be a big reason. Why all these done is hit throughout the minor league level. So you assume that's going to continue once. He hits the big leagues but the guy beat his Gavin locks for the dodgers. He's the heavy heavy favourite in the clubhouse. Like I hit three ninety two and AAA only two forty in the bigs but people are willing to look over that thinking. They're going to get the guy doubles triples almost hitting four hundred and AAA. So Gavin. Looks is the the safest bad out there and Dylan Carlson? Mackenzie Gore Joey Bart a few other value picks and long shots but Gavin. Lux is the guy to beat in the clubhouse for NFL rookie of the year in twenty twenty. Well we'll see if it's a little bit closer than last year. Where like I said. Pete Alonzo was one shy of a unanimous selection but their APPs up third segment here of the GSM see baseball podcast brought to you by the MC podcast network. We're GONNA pause for one of a brief word. One of our sister shows here within the PODCAST NETWORK. And when we come back. We're going to talk about the other leg.

"Do you think about the dodgers roster? They already have the reigning Mvp with cody. Bellinger they also have the former. Mvp AND CY young winner with Clayton Kershaw. So how all of these. Big noted players sort of fit together on one roster. They fit together like a lovely twenty six piece puzzle. And and that's the beauty of what the dodgers have done. They have constructed a roster. That really doesn't have. I'm not gonNA say any but doesn't have clearly visible flaws in that particularly goes for the everyday lineup. I mean you can put any number of players that any number of positions you can cody bellinger and Centerfield. One day playing first base. The next day. Compla- Max Muncie at first base and we can shift them over to second where. Oh by the way Gavin Lux whose top-five prospect and all baseball is GONNA play as well but if he's not there and if there's a left on the mound you can put key Gate Hernandez in their second base and he absolutely destroys lefthanded pitching. He also can play left field. Maybe a little bit of Centerfield but you've got AJ pollock and left field to you. Know if there's a right hander. Anyone Output Jack Petersen in there he crushes right handed pitching in. You've got cory seager. Shortstop Justin Turner Third. Will Smith is going to be a star behind the plate in bets guy in right field. You're talking about an incredible group of talent. But you're also talking about an incredible payroll that just was able to recklessly go. Add mookie betts because they wanted to when you look at a team like the orioles this year spending what forty five million dollars on their entire payroll and the dodgers are spending close to two hundred twenty. I mean it's just that level of imbalance as the rich seemingly get richer. Is that good for baseball. Yeah it's not great. It's not great but that's what happens when you have an UNCAPPED SYSTEM. That's also what happens when you're in a sport where money doesn't necessarily equal success if the dodgers just went out spending money like literally that's all they did. We've seen that before. We saw that with the New York Yankees throughout the two thousand. Ten's didn't work and and I think the Yankees really change their mindset and started understand what the dodgers have long understood. Which is you cannot be successful doing what you do. If you're not developing players from within if you're not counter-balancing those larger salaries with minimum salaries from players that you have developed whether it's via the draft or international free agency. You have to have a balance of those two and when you see the number of players that the dodgers have developed it shows just how great their farm system really has been for everything that we've talked about the greatness of the when you look at the National League across the board when teams should the dodgers the most worried about no one. I mean. Look when you have a system in which there is a five game series. You should be afraid of everyone but over the course of one hundred sixty two game season. There's nobody who's going to challenge the dodgers. There's just not I mean the Arizona diamondbacks Jason a really good team. They're probably going to be double digits behind the dodgers in the National League West. Even if you go out east let's look at the defending world series champions The Washington nationals. Good the really. Good the got Max Shurer. They've got Stephen Strasburg. And Patrick Corbin Audible Sanchez in the rotation. They beat the dodgers last year. Even though they didn't have as much talent. That's the trouble with going as far in on. Mookie Betts as the dodgers. Did I absolutely think it was the right move? I absolutely think that it was at the right time but in the end when we look back on the two thousand twenty season there is a possibility and not an insignificant possibility either that the dodgers lose in the division series like they did last year and at that point with bet steel. Be Worth it. I mean the answers gotta be no right. Well let me counter that though I mean the answer is no anytime you acquire player. Sure I understand world series or bust but the dodgers are making money. Anyway they WANNA look at it so they're putting themselves in the best chance to try and win a World Series Championship. Is it as simple for the organization as World Series or bust? Yes I think it is at this point I think. The dodgers judge their seasons where they are right now with the talent. They have based on whether they have a gold ring encrusted with diamonds. That they're giving out on opening day the next year or whether they don't I think it is that binary and certainly you can take positives out of a season which you don't win a world series and have good feelings about the things that you achieve that accomplished but if you were to give truth serum to everybody in that organization. I think everyone would say we. WanNa win and we want to win. Now if you had to decide to to come in with an educated opinion and you're risking my house on it not yours my house on our friendship and it's dodgers of the field to win it all this year. Who who you take it. I'm GonNa take your question and twisted a little. If you had one team to choose to win the world series this year. Who WOULD IT BE? My answer would be the Los Angeles dodgers..

"As far as he's the only guy in this entire thing that does one thing he does win. These other guys are versatile guys. The dodgers are a team built on versatility. And we've seen him play a little first base here and there didn't look super great however you know what one thing he does do really well hit clutch home runs. Yes he he does yeah he. He's one of their better play for him. JT and Muncie. Those are the guys that show up. I'd last name is Gavin Lux. This is the opposite of course eager for mcavan Luxa. I knew as a super highly regarded prospect. I know Andrew Freedman has had a really good track record all name. ABS- Is Baseball. And if they I think he's going to be good odds are he's going to be pretty good right. Let me stop right there. Oh this goes back to the what might be versus. What is it? I don't know what it is it. Might it be good. It might not we. How many how many dozens hundreds of baseball players have we seen? This is a guy who misses. Wile prospects are suspect until proven otherwise. Otherwise yes this is true. Yes so if we can flip Gavin until like a pitching option one hundred percent to be doing. I'm in I don't know I really Ohio Ohio and yet I got to see what it looks like. I but the pitcher Nolan with George the rub on that is though if you see what it looks like. It's they don't think it's GONNA be bad. I don't either but you none of us know I mean it's hard to see a guy with that kind of trajectory through the minor league system. That's going to be bad like. There's not a lot of precedent for it. I have a name. I'm for you. Brandon would right here. In southern California Brandon would tore up every level of baseball. He was ever anywhere. Triple A.. Get the ball. Oughta these big lakes. Right Douse McPherson another angel. Who Tore up every level of the Minor Leagues Billy? It it happens we remember Kevin Maas. Yeah Kevin Replacement for Don Mattingley came in and hit like thirty. Something home runs at first year and I don't think it's thirty the rest of the way they did happens a lot. Yeah it happens but man I even. I thought he's moments in the big leagues last year. I thought were pretty good. Really really good moments. My only fear is that he might be the best option to flip and get a really good arm right and I still believe we need a definitive number two. I know you said we can put Kershaw's to. I don't want to put someone there. I want someone to be there respectful. Yes hope the Sodano show is next. We'll see you tomorrow morning from Riviera..

He's as a multi time all-star here these three guys You take any of those games since two thousand fifteen In terms of wins above replacement. mookie betts is number two nol aeronautical is number four and Francisco lindores number five so they are three great players all on and I got you actually.

I was having this conversation with somebody today about the dodgers and you know september call ups are literally right around the corner and gavin lux who who is their best minor league prospect is just the best minor league baseball player there is this season he's <hes> middle infielder and and he can really play pretty much anywhere on the diamond on the infield second short he can play third. I guess if you needed to <hes> but he's a middle infielder and and i was like this should be easy. Come up you know who gives some guys break right. He'll get some at bats playing a couple of games. You know maybe if he likes it up. Maybe sticks around on the postseason roster who the hell knows right and this person pushed back on me and a buddy of mine and it was like but d you wanna take away at bats from chris taylor and keith hernandez. You get ready for the postseason. I'm like you know. I feel like those guys at this stretch and demarco. You've covered baseball for years <music> as well. I know you know this.

I was hoping you wouldn't figure that out. I mean it's it's actually to be honest. I really bad example. I was really because it's terrible. It's really just come right back in time because i thought of the whole in my own theory theory over the course of action poker like poker yeah you would have lost that i will poke a hole in andy's theory here except i knew i was wrong but the point being it's like it'd be one thing if you knew that felipe vasquez was gonna give you you you know i really demonstrably better chance of winning. You know twenty percent thirty percent like acquiring yo. Oh a great n._b._a. Player halfway through the season. You know they got jimmy butler. In philadelphia that change their odds considerably baseball's not like that. I mean one guy at at best gives you a climbing. You can make the argument hanging onto that prospect because i can't change anyway because no because gavin lux gives you ten years of that because and also to a a position player gives you much more value than a left handed. Reliever does know left and leaving not necessarily in this year. There's a better chance or at least there's certainly an equal chance because we don't know how what if any impact gavin locks is gonna happen this postal. He's not gonna have any impact on this basket. The question is the difference between vasquez and whoever the kenley jansen has been pitching the vasquez on that roster right. I mean the way we've been questioning kenley jansen for questioning in part heart because he's just not bulletproof anymore. Flav astles envelope review no but he's been doing good invulnerable. I mean like this is really worry about him. He's been vulnerable in the playoffs in the past and it is right in party believes vulnerable when he was good but this stuff matters i agree this stuff matters and if you're thinking about the right now gavin looks you right could be a big part of the dodgers for the next ten years but you have no idea if you're going to get a championship with gavin looks anyway and if you certainly don't know that he's not e certainly know that he's not going to play a role in this year's potential for the world series. That's what i'm talking about like. Nothing absolutely <music> absolutely zero percent. They have a lot of prospects and they're not good. They're in but they're incredible at finding prospects and we know this because they found cody bellinger's orange found walker by the way has has his forty first homerun. We we know how good they are at this like so just find another guy five ear kind of minimizing how easy just go find another injures a little bit gavin locks dodgers dismissive. They are good added your question and we we we don't know how good a major league player gavin locks has yet. We like sort of compare them against like cody bellinger again and brian.

I the way the market shaped up this year. Was it made it really difficult for the handful of elite elite championship contender level teams to do something. It was GONNA cost them more than they were prepared to give you look at what the dodgers eh the deadline the last few years everybody they gave up. They were willing to give up. They didn't give up bellinger for Hamels that one year or Bueller for whoever whoever the flavor of the moment was that time or cory seager you know years back. They always gave up guys that they felt that they could you know do without and by the way nothing's really come back to haunt them. Know exactly the only one that you could say has has burned them as the Josh Fields Your Dan Alvarez deal with the Astros and at the time nobody paid any attention to either side of that trait so they gave away a lot and they haven't been burned yet yet so they've made the right decisions on who to give up this year if they were going to do the kind of trade that you and you know certain columnists for big newspapers. Would I love you know call for them to make it was gonNA cost them. Gavin Lux Dustin They Will Smith or cable release or more than one of those and they just decided added that it was not worth it and by by the way I think I speak for John here where we said there's no way you should give up. Gavin locks especially not the way he's <hes> <hes> he's destroying AAA. There's no way you give up will Smith. He's already the everyday catcher Dustin. May I've not seen pitch tomorrow night. He's GonNa Pitch to understanding <hes> keeper Ruis. I've not seen play except for a limited time in spring training and I thought giving up one of those guys for Felipe Vasquez. Maybe rees made sense but not multiple of those guys indefinitely not Gavin locks yeah and the deal was not going to get made on those terms is that the pirates writs from every indication we're asking for two of the four they wanted one of the catcher's either. Smith Ruiz and then Dustin may or Gavin Lux it was not going to get done which is one of them and other parts so you know if they walked away that that was just too much.

"Some prospects they want Gavin Lux middle infielder dodgers. Don't want to give him up the dodgers have been linked to Edwin D as as he traded the joke Michael Give us a Baltimore is still on this givens right. I thought it was business. I don't get it. I can give him. He's a brother to never trust and there's there's this question this question just with the dodgers. Of how confident are you heading getting into this deadline. Like how much do you think has to be done and really at what price are the dodger front. Office is known for being very careful airfoil very meticulous very pragmatic about how they go about doing this the way they value prospects and they're good at evaluating them but it's three years. You're looking to get three straight years into the world series. You're looking to win this year. Well here's the question. Do you believe they can get to the world series without making any changes dancers yes yes. Do you believe that they can win the world series without making any changes. The answer is yes. Do you believe that Lux is worth the risk risk. That is a question we can't answer and we can't answer because we don't know much about him. Besides what we read we're not. We haven't been taking the gains we we don't know if he's going to pan out. We do know there's been chatter about calling him up and we do know that he is so coveted that he reportedly is holding up this trae from happy in the first place. Ask as I would just we I reflect back to just my own thought pattern you know three years ago when there was an opportunity to mitigate Chris Assail who I think is you know especially at that time which just a absolutely dominant pitcher trading cody bellinger who had never seen for three years later cody imbalances M._v._p.. Candidate and Chris Sale is you know the cell has Mohsen it. Yeah I mean what what I think is really interesting too like when you mentioned Gavin Lux and like you I will be the first to admit I have barely seen the kid at all like I don't really know what to make of him other than the fact that the dodgers really covered him but then when when you think about the long term picture with Gavin locks he plays the same position as Cory seager and I know in theory you could get a second..

Insiders he says the pirates dodgers talks about Felipe Vasquez. If you don't awfully Vasquez's left handed reliever closer currently bogged down in part because the pirates want number one prospect from the dodgers Gavin Lux and the dodgers want to keep him so Vasquez's cost control he doesn't make a lot of money and controls contract for a couple of years is awesome. He's filthy but I'm not giving up the best prospect in the farm on the farm an everyday player for reliever. I'm just I'm not doing that. I could see it. I if you're going to do it. You don't do it over a rental. You don't do for Zach Wheeler from the mets to get an extra starter e. It's the very least it's got to be someone who's familiar roster over the next two or three or four years he would be Vasquez but yeah I I have an enormous amount of faith in who the dodgers keep and who they decide is not worth this sort of trade and I'm also deeply cynical about the value of trade deadline deals I just I don't think they ever you really have the impact that you're looking for and they're great for winning the headline great for winning the week and making you feel good about the team and all this other stuff but they rarely have the impact in the playoffs that you're looking for and meanwhile to give up two or three prospects who are important your everyday play and this and that whatever look at how think about how much different the dodgers would be if they traded seger or bellinger or will smith or Bueller or any of these other guys that are filling up this roster it matters and so I just I'm I'm always skeptical. I too bad guy to have on the air by for Wednesday. Yeah I've done that I I want. I want to get excited by and I wanted to help because I want the dodgers to win a world series. Just people need to be careful. You need understand ninety. Whatever percent of the time these traits do not have the impact that you're looking for yeah? No I agreed read now. Here's the thing I am a guy who normally believes that prospects in baseball are suspect until proven otherwise Oh yeah I I'm a believer in that show I do think though that you draw the line at certain guys like I think that there is a the thing where you know Gavlak tearing up the minor leagues and he plays midland fields shortstop slash second basement like those are particularly second base is a position of needs soon yes. They don't really have a guy. It's one of the few positions missions on the field where you can't look at it and say well that Verdoux goes and outfielders you me there awhile yeah bellinger. You got see her you. You've got dudes around will Smith yet at Catcher Ruis if they hold onto him you just it's people talking about prospects vexing young players and this and that you want veterans you want all these other things the reason these guys are it's not just of their cost controlled or that. They're cheaper or whatever that's not their primary value right there better it's because they're usually better play twenty twenty four year. Old Guy is usually better than the thirty four year old guys and so you don't WanNa have to be chasing older players through free agency because you've given up all your prospects. Your team won't be as good. It's not a question.
