"You will see is this season goes on. I'm almost sure Jim because we saw it in the spring. We're actually seeing it. Early on in the season, some good plate discipline. In the spring it led to walks. In the regular season. It has lead to longer at bats, but not necessarily the walks. Right? And so it's perhaps a little anxious Nous on the 32. He's taken some pitches for called third strikes. He is going to have, I think really a rock solid walk rate as he learns this league Nico good room at the plate swinging in a foul on the play as they ride up in the strike zone. Those were saying the Yankees got Thai own from Pittsburgh coming back from a second Tommy John surgery. Not many folks have done that he missed all of last year. Pitch just seven games in 2019. And they told him to jump the sinker right and use the four seam fastball where Up in this job. That's right. That's right. So his his profile has changed. Nico Good room lines one foul into the screen down the right field line. A guy who has been A ground ball pitcher. I mean the story. The similarity of the Kolar are really Kind of striking. So far, not only four star No, but this is a ground ball pitcher didn't give up many fly balls, and now he is a guy doesn't get a lot of ground balls. It's only four starts in 17 innings. There's a definite change in his better ball profile. The 02 instead of quick throw over to first. You know, using that four seam fastball up more balls of being hit in the air. It may have saved his career. I'm just making that simple change that you said Cole made and you know, he's the prime example of how to succeed with that type of Ah field for pitching. He's cut his walks. He's a premium strike tour and bump the strikeouts. That's exact what you're trying to do with that change curb although that's a good take by Nico Good room that curve balls already been vexing for. Some tigers hitters, But Jim, There's a kill but do with a six pitch trip to the plate. He was one of the only batters and that double header to have a long at bat. Against Dylan cease in Game two, and he is the only one to get to even a two ball count today. 12 swinging a miss It just you could just predict it's not even that hard and predicting his easy It's just like you could almost call it out and say You know what's coming? Yeah, you know that this next pitch is going to be After a pitch of breaking ball down. Fastball above the strike zone. Really Castrol struck out on a fastball up swinging scope struck out on a fastball up swinging. Candelario struck out on a fastball up swinging. And good room. Same thing. Four batters. Ball struck out swinging on the same pitch. Would say it's right at the top of the strike zone, but most are just above the strike zone and they're unable To lay on. You just can't catch up with him, and they're tardy with the swings. He's a Grayson Greiner. No scores second inning. Race in five for 25 start with a home run. Sanchez setting up blowing away down on the right knee curveball strike on the inside corner for a called strike to Grayson. Greiner. You've got a good jacker. God, he really does. He has been easy. Jamison Tie own has been easy at times in his career to run on. Do certainly can steal a base. Draw another throw, but it's a pretty short, cautious lead. Right now for him over at first base. Adored second shades up the middle, but not a full shift. On Grayson Greiner. Another throw to first to drive but due back lead getting a little bit bigger over there. No, they have to do something to shake up this office hit and run running hit. I know something. Put him in the house. There's two outs. But what the heck? Try anything? Sanchez throws out runners at about a 20% clip the last few years. Do doesn't go. Greiner takes Slaughter at the outside edge down in a way for a called strike. Perfect pitch. Perfect pitch, Jimmy, please. How's he going to go up with the fastball? Hey, You feel like you can just write it down already? Yes. I'm going to lay off. That's the question. Hi target the 02 fastball way above the target, But that's when the few times he's missed. At the top of the strike zone. Waste pits. That's right. Every tigers batter except Grossman has either been behind in the count when you put the ball in play like Miguel or his face, two to strike count. Premium strike. Joni's filling up the strike zone right now, with four quality pitches, Grindr waiting on a 12 in a scoreless game second, ending the pitch swinging in a foul straight back, But do was off with the pit. I love it. We absolutely do something, something, man. Yes. It's so aggravating. Think.

"When they signed him. I mean, Obviously they were taking a chance because he hadn't pitched in this country. But in a year deal for $25 million, not bad, and they they had him is kind of a five inning. Pitcher. Check swing. Did he go? Yes, he did. Appeal down the first. Grayson Greiner strike one The twins have let him work deeper into games. Memory took the no hitter into the ninth and since Milwaukee starts ago. And they traded for him. They had four years left swinging a tap. Fowley was a solid pitcher for the Dodgers. I guess they were looking for maybe a little bit more, but his big improvements this year has always been a strikeout pitcher. He's cut his walks sharply. Hey, and much improved against lefties, too consistent picture. This is a heck of an edition and a heck of a trade. For the Minnesota Twins. They needed pitching. Going to the count of grace and grinder. The pitch slider loan away one ball two strikes. It's very similar mechanics. Deliveries for Japanese pitchers Stand square to home plate the step back arms go up. Pause the turn. Lift the leg in just a slight pause, and then the drive to home plate, the 12 Slider way they're not all the same. But there are many similarities. Most of the Japanese pictures we have seen I've ever seen in the little League World Series. Same thing. Hello? Two balls, two strikes and Grayson Greiner, the pitch swinging a minister. He just stuck with that slider knew we'd get him eventually, and he was right. What pitch?.

"Of the wall. Oh, my goodness! Backto back fly balls. Driven by the wind, both with catches by outfielders at the top of the wall to take a home run away Jake Cave with a superb play another high fly ball riding the wind. He timed it just right would have been out. Wow. You're right there on that ball. You get it up there It is just gone. Good swing for Cameron Maybin. You didn't used to be able to do that. Get the ball in the year to talk advantage of a wind today. I like I like his approach to hitting now. Grayson Greiner. Step to the plate in a tutu game.

"Now, you thought the Pittsburgh bullpen would been busy sometimes, but no. You would never thought the Tiger Book Boy how things changed in this game of baseball, 64 game. So we worried about it what Pittsburgh's offense might do after waking up against Tigers pitching yesterday with 17 runs scored. The Tigers went from 12 to second. In run scoring in the American League about that, and that's what happens early in the year. But with the 13 runs allowed, they fell to 14 in runs allowed per game. I have to talk about per game because everybody's played a different number of games strike on the outside corner, Adam Frazier at the plate. Raiser's over to two for six in the game last night. That's another good swing right here. The good short stroke left side. He had the big home run in the ninth inning tied the game at 12. Upright. Relax Stance. Knees slightly flags. The upper body upright is it talks about high over the left shoulder swings in tips to change of foul down the first baseline quickly, no balls and two strikes 64 game. Big run of the stranded third, and it's tough to strand Dyson at third. He'll find some way to get home when he's over at third base with all that speed, Frazer runs well, doesn't ground into many double plays. Theo to slider in the dirt blocked by Grayson Greiner. Behind the Left handed batter, Adam Fraser, one ball and two strikes. Fourth inning, 64 Tigers. It was six nothing.

"Mean, this is this is Grayson Greiner, just seven at bats. He's still looking for his first hit of the year swings and drives one foul down the left field line. No balls and two strikes. News going, Grayson Greiner first base hit then. And then you know you break the ice. You feel lot better, sometimes hard to get that first hit. Candelaria owes homerun 437 feet Grown. 404 Cabrera down the line 3 51 and Good room 3 75 The pitch was springing a foul straight. Magda, who he had a rip at a fastball in her half of the plate. He's He's getting a lot of the plate with his pitches in, there's not a lot of late movement started in the rotation Last year, he pitched for both the Cubs in San Francisco, but he got hit hard and Really became a situational lefty. He can shut down lefties, but he cannot show down. Writings did not last year, at least or two years before and we're seeing it here today, the Tigers loaded their lineup. There's a throw to first is going to get away from Evan's Victor Reyes will cruise down to second base. He was diving back head first, so it didn't have time to get over to third. That'll be throwing your on Derek Holland. It's all coming apart for him to put raise its second base. Save your on the Pittsburgh Pirates bench right about now you got to say you've got to be kidding me. That's an error on the first pass materials. He just boxed the ball. He jabbed at it. Hit off the thumb of the glove. Perfect Pick off Throw a Ron Evans. Quite a move to almost had Ray is leading the wrong way. Now, Greiner swings in tips. A slider foul down the third baseline five. Nothing, Tiger. Is in the first on the strength of four home runs, something we have never seen before. Four home runs the 1st 5 batters of the game in the last two especially were just crushed My Cronin candle Auriol Candy, really smoked that baby on the hardest hit ball of the 1st 6 batters was demerits out about that. Crying takes a fastball high in terms of exit velocity off the bat. The marriage line out to sooner was the hardest hit ball He's got through the 1st 6 matters. Home run single homerun homerun homerun Cabrera grown Candelario, after good room started the game with a home run Grindr, waiting on a one to Holland checks raise at second one's twice hanging slider, middle of the plate and grinder swings and taps it. Fouled on the third base line. He's havinsome. He's havinsome decent swings. Just not getting a good part of the bat on the ball needs to break through with something..

"That is guys very windy and rainy in downtown Detroit. Well, it is baseball. Hopefully, we will get baseball in this afternoon. Hello again, everyone. We're getting ready to try and wrap up this three game set with the angels, very soggy forecast for the afternoon. And indeed the hope is that somehow we can dodge the raindrops long enough to get an official game in this. It's just one of those tricky situations, Jim because the angels only come in once as everybody knows. And they already have a makeup game in Chicago and make them come to one city for one day well out of their way, going home to Los Angeles. It's asking a lot. And that's there's a lot of pressure on the Tigers to to try to get this game in today. So we could be we could be waiting a long time. We really could be. But you gotta be fair.

"The second game of the doubleheader at Fenway park. When Ron Gardenhire used seven relievers to get the last twelve outs, Shane green closing out. The always seems to do. It's been a collapse for the Tigers bullpen and really the entire staff a bunch of the right of the mound. Buck farmer will feel though right by mail, man. I think he was thinking about a play at the play. It was a safety. Squeeze Cordell is coming home. But it was bunted hard enough. If he feels the play at the plate, but he looked up the ball. God by everybody, safer run in three one Chicago. That's exactly what happened. You could see him getting his feet in position to make the throw home just took his eyes off at trying to you know, out of the corner of his eye looking for Greiner. And just missed it. Err on the pitcher buck farmer, sacrifice credited to Leary. Go see him. He does get an RBI. But that would have been a sure out at home plate if he feels a Clinton. Now ground ball hit back to the mound fielded by former down to beckon one related. I him Anderson erased that's a good play by buck farmer reaching quickly to his right on back in on a soft tapper a one four three double play over two third goes Yohmor Sanchez. That's a big big run for Chicago. Buck farmer couldn't quite believe it when he missed, but he just peaked a little bit ready for a plate the plate. Got the ground ball that he needed just better too late. Going into game three in Boston. The Tigers starters. We're second in the American League in era. Intentional walk to a break with first base open. Why not it just kills Tigers pitching six hits and the two games in this series? So the intention walkie trots down to first since game three in Boston. Again going into that game. Second in the American League in the IRA team area. Three twenty three. Relievers were second in the American League. In the area starters were second in the American League in ERA, and then the last three days in twenty five innings of work. The Tigers gave up thirty runs on forty three hits. It was rather. Stunning. Three-game stretch seventeen walks Dan with the forty three hits in thirty innings. That's why yesterday might have come at the right time. Tiger hope me. We've seen a lot of good performances up until the last three days in the last three games. James McCann swings and fouls. Ninety four mile an hour fastball straight back to the screen big big run on a day when the Tigers offense has been silenced off a lot of good swings. Consistent at bats over the last eight games after nothing through seventeen games, but credit rhino Lopez. One heck of a start today with the power arm. Righty on writing this matchup. The strike one fastball. Dismisses inside when ball. One strike Tigers have to hits today was the bloop. Double in the first inning for Castanos. Grayson Greiner this sharp single that was back in the second inning. Only three baserunners since the second all on walks. Money Rodriguez shades toward the whole short Beckham shades up the middle of the outfield straight up on McCain, the one one swings and misses you wave at a slider down in a way. Over three today. The socks hottest hitters recrinching has been put in that cleanup spot and the two games in this series. Anyway. That's a first slider. That bucks thrown this this in like to see that that slide rather than the changeups to the to the right handed hitters one too fast bowling just because the movement on the change of coming in. And sometimes you can leave it on that inner half yet. I you know, it's not that you never can throw it. I just think it just sets up better to get right? Handers out with the breaking ball. Three run seven hits for the White Sox. One run to his for the Tigers. Each team has made an error the to swinging tap foul could live fastball from buck farmer. Couple of scores to update on the general RV scoreboard from one eight hundred call Sam studios nationally, five one Philadelphia over Miami. That's the Tigers are heading after an off day tomorrow two games and Philadelphia Tuesday Wednesday Mets five to over Milwaukee. Stephen Matt's at his third win of the year. Seven five Colorado leads Atlanta that was a top of the eighth inning in Atlanta as the LB's with two home runs in that game for the Atlanta Braves. Six six Washington in San Diego during in the bottom of the inning in our nation's capital. Mccain wedding. This'll be the six pitch of the at bat slider in the dirt. Good block again by gracing grinder, dropping down to his knees keeps the ball out to the right. Mccain has been a pretty aggressive hitter in his time in the major leagues drawn four walks early this year, but if this pitches closes he should be swinging. Minnesota's about to sweep Baltimore. They've played very well this weekend back to back games for Minnesota. That offense has suddenly become one of the best in the American League. Led by Polanco and resort. Oh, five home runs. Friday. Five home runs yesterday. Minnesota four one lead today in the eighth inning on the two home runs though. So it's an off day for the offense. The three to pitch. Swing and miss good fastball. Lohan away, McCann strikes out. And earned run. Even though the air probably.

"The upset. Welcome. To painting corners, your weekly Bod gas or all things baseball. Now. Here are your host Austin Hartsfield, and Dave Witkowski. We're gonna start at the catcher position. Definitely not Grayson Grigny is definitely Grayson Greiner. What I saw an article in bless you boys that said that Ron Gardenhire in December said they would probably be the Sar starter kinda give me the profile on him. And what the future is like behind him. And is there hope for the catching position in the future? Yeah. I mean, I think overall there is some hope for the catching position Grayson Greiner probably represents like a future backup though. I don't even remember exactly what round gracing Greiner or or as we like to call third. Sorry. I got it in front of you. Oh, yeah. Gray song Greiner was let's take it in. So. Yeah. You know, he was never really looked at like the guy who was going to come up and be necessarily starting catcher. And didn't really, you know profile like that in the upper minors. You know, he can hit a bit. You know, he looked like your prototypical. This guy is gonna get overpowered by major league pitching. But probably can can be serviceable and is pretty decent defensively. So there's not a whole lot to be excited about. And I think a lot of us were a little bit surprised that the Tigers seem kind of dead set on giving them the job this year. But most of us really really had come to just just loathe having James McCann as our starting catcher for for many reasons. And so everyone was kind of okay moving on. But but yet, you know, Greiner, really. Probably should be a backup to the air. Incumbent who is going to be Jake Rogers who the Tigers got back from the Astros in the Justin Verlander deal in between those two places. The Tigers have kind of stockpiled a lot of guys who are twenty nine to thirty one or a little older. You know, they've got John Hicks who has never really been a starting player in the major leagues, but can can at least fake it behind the plate. And as a decent bet for a catcher, and they picked up like catcher Sanchez and Bobby Wilson, you know, big time fans of the sport. Will remember those guys because they've you know, they've been around quite a bit. Neither one of them is really a major league caliber catcher at this point. But the Tigers did get those two guys for depth. And so potentially, you know, one of those to come up and kinda spell things if Hicks just really can't get the job done behind the plate. But. Yeah. Overall in that that's kind of a bleak picture, and we're all really waiting for for Jake riders who, you know, baseball prospectus has their, you know. Basically their values that they would you you know, and their statistics that they would do for the major league level. They haven't for the minor leagues. And Jake Rogers was like six war player last year at Erie at the AA level and most and most of that is defense, you know, just about everybody. I've talked to will tell you the Jake Rogers is the best catcher the desk catcher in the entire minor leagues right now. And so the tires do have that coming the questions just kind of revolve around like is he going to have enough bat, and he's kinda got like this high leg kick. He looks a little bit like Mike Napoli at the plate. He's kind of you know, kind of take some hacks and has a distinct uppercut swing, and you know, the Tigers being the organization that they are. They don't like uppercut swing..

"Did it i don't know who sam palaces so i don't know who might have maybe we can get ron gardenhire on the podcast rickett grayson greiner back on here so i don't know it's a highly appropriate ringtone though and probably someone is already doing a post somewhere that what every miniatures ringtone should be if not free post idea there you go so i also wanted to mention i don't know whether you this but there was a high school game that someone tweeted us about this morning it was a high school game in connecticut and wouldn't have known about it except for this tweeter named matt and evidently there's a tournament the sec tournament and there were rounds just being pushed back via rain over and over again i guess more than once and the north haven and amity baseball teams were sick of not being able to play they had a quarterfinal matchup and so what they did is they played rock paper scissors instead of baseball to settle this quarterfinal matchup they gathered around home plate there's a picture of the entire teams just huddled around home plate and they played rock paper scissors it took eleven rounds to settle and the indians beat the spartans five four i don't even no which one is which but there were two draws i guess we're two players pick and saving thing so it was five four in eleven rounds and i don't believe this is an official result is not officially sanctioned but there was a game story about it at gametime connecticut dot com that treats it as if it was an actual matchup and has like a box score or a play log at the end i guess where it chronicles what each player picked in each round and final round was a paper versus scissors and that was that and i just wonder whether this would give rub manfred any ideas about possibly settling extra inning games and whether this is actually any worse than having the extra runner start at second base in the tenth inning so who got credit for the win i wouldn't was well let's see yeah okay it says.

"Low end welcome to episode twelve fifteen of actively wild wildaid as podcast ben grabs presented by our patriot supporters i am ben lindberg of the ringer joined by jeff sullivan of graphs low pillow we have kind of whacky one today i guess you could say so let me explain how this came about and what's happening here is kind of highconcept podcast but remember when we had sam on week ago and in the course of conversation i mentioned that there are a lot of baseball players these days bo pens are big it's hard to keep track of all the new players so i suggested that it would be a good idea for someone out there to keep track of each new player who debuts and write about it somewhere in that would be valuable service so some listeners have already taken me up on that suggestion and there is now a newsletter called this week in baseball debuts that is organized by effectively weld listeners it's at tiny letter dot com slash this week in baseball views i have signed up ready i will provide it link on the show page if you'd like to sign up the content will also be posted on bench to the pen our sister site so anyway this is happening now and because of this happening i know about a player who made his debut this week and i got an email from one of the listeners who's working on this simon gutierrez and he pointed out that the tigers have a new catcher grayson greiner who made his debut on sunday and got his first hit against just seven favorite jacob junus and he is a six six catcher which stood out to me you don't see a lot of six catchers so i wanted to have grayson on the show and we are talking to grayson later in this episode but i also got the idea to talk to the other six catchers in baseball history so there are only two i am not counting the one who played in the eighteen eighty four union association anton foul couldn't get him on the phone now he was not available for one thing but also the eighteen.
