"grondahl" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"That's probably tim why i feel that way. Yes us you're you're still bitter. Forty three years later. Reggie jackson intentionally through his hip in the way of a fitch away of a thrown ball way more than yeahs. Monte grondahl did so. I'm gonna tell you one more time. It was a savvy move by grondahl not to get out of the way of that ball. I'm just saying the first forty five feet. He wasn't thinking great. I'm gonna get hit by this throw and everyone's going to be saved right You will be working. Espn radio today. Brewers braves down in atlanta. Where do you see that series. Well i think the braves are now in better shape. Because they're at home. And and i think the brewers have some significant offensive issue buster. The brewers didn't have a ninety. Rbi guide the entire season. This is not a good offensive team. The only way they beat you. And they'll tell you this is to overpower you. That great starting pitching and then go to devon williams not available and josh hater in the ninth inning. So they're a weakened team without williams but they're starting pitching is the only wade scored two runs in two games here and they are not a good offensive team in anderson's been pretty good lately. I expect him to win today. But fred peralta has been great bustard. They have three starting pitchers who have a with another one. No team has ever had three. Starting pitchers make twenty five or more starts in a year and all three have a whip under one so they need freddie peralta to be great today in order to get the lead back here otherwise the braves with much more thumping their lineup. I think take a very small advantage in this league but keep in mind. These teams have scored a total of six runs in two games and one for eighteen with runners in scoring position. Look for another low scoring game today. Tim the brewers remind me of an nfl team that runs the ball really really well but if somehow they got it. That nfl team got under situation where they got down by two touchdowns they would be in major trouble because they just don't have the offensive firepower to respond that an app comparison. Yes and that's how i see it. I mean they've scored. Like i said to runs came on one. Swing of the bat from rowdy to les- neck so many other times they've had some people on base and just couldn't get a man. And let's be fair or charlie morton for five innings game. One was unhittable. It's the best. I've ever seen him. Throw and max freidan game. Two was tremendous for six innings. Still can't believe they took about after eighty one pitches but this is where the braves are different than the braves team of last year. They have better starting pitching freed morton and today in anderson. That's why you can't scout the braves. 'cause they're starting pitching his good and they had two hundred thirty nine homers. I constantly get text messages for my son. The braves fan about the back end of the braves bullpen in the panic that it creates within him. Are they in a better spot now with their late inning relief or is it still feel really tentative. I it's tentative now. Will smith has had a very good year and yet one of the most one of the one very difficult ear at the same time. So buster try to follow me here since one thousand nine hundred sixty nine only four times has a relief. Pitcher faced six batters in an inning walked three of them and struck out three so he walks the bases loaded and strikes out the other three so only happened four times nineteen sixty nine and twice a does happen will smith including wants this year. That's who he is in the ninth inning. You have to expect. There's gonna be some runners on base but usually he gets out of it. I'm not sure about the seventh and eighth inning. Luke jackson great tyler. Matt six have been great. But i think there's a little bit of hesitation with canada braves. Hold the lead until will smith comes and does his high wire act. I'm not sure about the back. End of the bullpen. But it's done a pretty good job up until now we'll see if they can continue it in the playoffs. It seems inevitable. We're gonna talk about dodgers and giants later in the week game three today but alex wood of the giants pitching gets max scherzer. Tell me what you're seeing that series. Well i see a decided advantage for the dodgers in the starting pitching matchup. 'cause i expect To be great as opposed to ninety four pitches in four and a third innings and. Take them out of the game as he did in his first postseason start in the wildcard game. But to underestimate the giants at any point is a massive mistake with the way they played this year. Buster one hundred and eight games. We're still at can. They beat the dodgers. I was talking to couple their scouts yesterday. They said we want one hundred seven games until people still treated us like we finished in second place. We didn't so. I like the dodgers today in that matchup. But the other thing. Bustard the whole max. Muncie thing anyone who underestimates his value to the lineup has not been watching this entire season. So we keep saying they have depth. They do matt. Beatty cody bellinger out. Pools but missing. Max muncie is going to hurt them. I think it already has. We'll see how much hurts them. Moving forward all right. Tim thanks for doing this. Have fun with your broadcast today. Okay buster thank you talk to you soon. I.

"grondahl" Discussed on Sports Gambling Radio - By BangTheBook
"Big series for them big four-game series with the two game swings all of them to determine kind of where they stand year. Charlie morton sagan money today as i mentioned. But i like zack. Wheeler tomorrow wheeler eleventh. Ground ball percentage among qualified pitchers. I just talked about. I think gras guys are in good shape here. Big home road splits for atlanta offensively. The phillies are a top. Ten offense against lefties so gives you a little bit of a preview a look ahead to a game that will probably be on my car for tomorrow. Will you take the phillies over the braves. In that zack. Wheeler and max freed matchup yankees and the red sox here. Amazingly sunday's game is not on sunday night baseball which is a good thing. I think you've got jordan. Montgomery tenor how tonight. Garrett cole and word o rodriguez on friday jamison Nato volley saturday and domingo her mind and martine peres on sunday. Nobody wants to see that on sunday night baseball curious you what happens with the line movement in this series you know so far. We've seen red sox money tonight. I think we've probably see rodriguez money tomorrow. Garrett cole probably opens a little bit higher than he should. so we'll probably see red sox. Money saturday i know we will or on a friday. Excuse me i know. We will on saturday. When they you on the mound. We'll see over money for her mind and peres on sunday. So we've seen a lot of yankees love a lotta yankees steam in the betting market. I don't think we get that in this series here this weekend. I think the red sox take money for taking today already. I'd expect them to take money on saturday and sunday here. Not so sure. Excuse me friday and saturday. Not so sure about sunday. But on friday and saturday i do. Expect to see some red sox. Money end up hitting the board their cardinals in the reds and other series with some two games swings here wade la- block and tyler mail on friday. I think it's john woodford and luiz casteel on saturday. You'll oviedo and sunny gray on sunday. Look this is a must win series for the reds the reds half to right the ship here and everything is set up for them to do exactly that all three pitching matchups are in their favor. They've got those home splits with power. The cardinals are a bad offense in a singles offense. The cardinals do not hit for power. The reds do so with the reds at home favourite in all three games of good pitching matchups for them. I've got like a red series price here. Obviously we won't see one until tomorrow morning thinking it's in the one fifty five to one sixty ranch for cincinnati but i do all three pitching matchups for them. I don't know four. Have any line equity to bet on them in any of these three games. But i do think the stage is set for them to have a really good series. I also think that it is essential that they have to play well in these games here against saint louis. Lastly man break out the candles and the jergens put on the kenny g. Or the michael bolton or whatever other kind of smooth jazz you want because we're going to have some sensual baseball here this weekend between the white sox in the brewers these three pitching matchups are just insanity. I mean you could not ask for better pitching matchups here in this series between the brewers and the white sox and you know what man everybody loves. Home runs chicks. Dig the long ball so on and so forth. But gimme pitchers tools like what we might see in this series lucas g alito and freddie peralta on friday carlos rodin and corbin burns on saturday lance lynn and brandon woodruff on sunday. I mean it does not get any better than that for those three pitching matchups exceptional just outstanding. I mean you got four four. Cy young award candidates in the two games on saturday and sunday. I mean just absolutely incredible. Now we'll see what these totals. I think that'll be very interesting. Especially because you have a white sox offense that is really good and you've got a brewers offense. It's been really good Of late. So i'll be real interesting to see what these lines are. I don't know if i'll play anything in this series but it should be a whole lot of fun. The one thing. I think is interesting to mention here. You know limited white sox lineup. It's already missing. Grondahl and magical and robert and jimenez. Some other guys jake lamb. They don't have a d. h. In this series this series in milwaukee so the white sox who are already kind of running out limited lineup. Don't have the d. h. So you run the risk now of putting out a subpar defensive lineup because you're trying to get as many bats as possible into the order so that could be the difference there so very good series three outstanding. Pitching matchups should be a lot of fun there in beer town.
"grondahl" Discussed on Against All Odds with Cousin Sal
"Jen. Jen's saying and brian you know i was a girardi guy. I you're i don't get it that you're right. They just wanted a nice guy who can play. Nice nice with these with these players. It's just yet has all right. So how are you like oakland to make the playoffs. But as a wildcard team again harry. He's not giving us great odds here minus one sixty four. Yeah but oakland still twelve games over five hundred. Only three and a half back in the west Matt tattoo fantastic season. He leads the team in Average home runs with twenty. Three are b is fifty nine pitching chris bassett again another great season. Ten and two averaging nine ks per nine innings urban and manera also been excellent starters and they've made the playoffs. Oakland has actually three years on the road. Sign up for brian. I should've gone to you. You are now picking answer team eight games out you like. The red sox won a division. Yeah like them to win the division even though this this race is closed with the rate. It's hard to imagine the in. Stay at the top when your best starter is rich hill. It's amazing that you know right. Now he is their best star but the red sox starting pitching hasn't been great but the bullpens been decent in that lineup. Is you know top three or four and baseball but my thing is you know the red sox are gonna make few moves here to distance themselves from the raise in. It's unlikely for the raise unless they're bringing up somebody from the minor leagues that you know that they're going to make any type of any type of big moves there so again. I think they're starting. I don't know when i look at that him. I know they find ways to do it every year but just richhill for some reason. Stare me in the face as their best starter. Just a overcome the red sox all right jim. What else you got. I think I like carlos ran for the aol. Cy young or we let you do. Yeah and here's why. I think that degrading well. I shouldn't talk about. Let's just talk about carlos redone garrett cole. His spin rates are off. They are if you go down and look at the game feed. He's one of the people who has been affected by this spider tack. Whatever museum have to blow extends in june he stunk. Now he did dial in and face the astros but i also think that he knew how to pitch the astor's and there was a lot more on the line there and he was just really focusing knows how to pitch at minute maid which is pitchers kark believe it or not. Even though the astor's all this offense so i really think garrett cole down the stretch. He has a higher era than carlos. Redone and he has a lower strikeout percentage curls don striking out batters thirty six percent of the time. Kohl's down to thirty three percent. Now i just don't think he's going to have the edge and also usually this voting goes to a team that makes the postseason white sox going. They've still got yet get back illinois. Is the waste robert. Their pitching staff has been spectacular. And plus it's a great story. So i'm kinda rooting for carlos redundant husky one hundred. It's a lot more fun than garrett cole. Well here's the thing. And i had done to two to one odds. And there's a nice record. One seventy percent of his at seven three to thirty one tied for second in strikeouts had g alito for the white sox to have the most strikeouts in the beginning you that was one of my bus picks but if you just go by the stats is so garrett call it really is and i know i get. Most of this was before everything turned around. But if you go wins above replacement if no ego all these categories all the major categories. It's caracol so you're betting on him to fall apart or jan said for the spin rate to really come into play and you know what we saw a you know aside from the astros game the other day The last two months at a coal is what you're thinking. So that's basically what you're betting on down I will say what else do. We have also brian. She brought up the white socks. You like them to win the al. Yeah i liked him to win. A l i i like them. That was one of my picks. I think they're over under wednesday at the start of the year. But it's even with the crazy i mean. Jeez they've had so many injuries but even with the crazy amount of injuries there's still a top heading team in baseball. They pretty much don't have to worry about the division so they can look to get healthy before the postseason like jenn was saying they get robert back at some point but that's probably later in the year jimenez. We'll be back grondahl back to that. Lineup is going to be crazy. Get come the playoff time. And then plus you have you have one of the better pitch starting pitching staffs in baseball to lend rodong and then even yeah gio lido. Even though his numbers aren't what they have been. I mean as a number three starter right now. That's that's still really good. Yeah absolutely and well. let's finish it off barley kid. Let's go now go. Nl mvp going against my guide. Degrom That's it. Because i went against garrett cole. That's why you jones at all. I just don't think guy was going to win thirteen games. She's gonna get. Mvp safe for this hill could still. Maybe i love. I love thirteen well right. Maybe my being generous. When i say thirteen this by the way he writes out the game to graham sits out the game where you could potentially get some run support. Finally for god's sakes play the all star game. Do you agree with that. Mean for him to be the. Mvp favourite could've pitcher. I have no problem with them. Winning fourteen games and winning the cy young i think with other numbers is going to put up absolutely. But how will you be the. Why would you be the mvp with like. Say fourteen wins. Max like maybe he gets fifteen up to fifteen. I'm sure he's going to miss a starter to. He's going to come out early some games so i'm going to go with tatty. At plus one fifteen is on pace for What you would say is is going to be very close to a forty forty season which we use to rave about right if somebody was forty home runs forty stolen bases playing a premier position on top notch team. And he's becoming the face of baseball at plus one fifteen. I'm writing with him all day for. Mvp jump on him now before those odds changed. Jan you're shaking your head again. I hate to be so agreeable. But i have been down here for the same reasons i think. Degrom is a lot for the ailsa. Cy young absolutely no what. We know that much about baseball. Y'all just exhilarating for the nl. Cy young. There's no question about that. And i but i don't think that the writers are necessarily gonna vote for him to win. Mvp because everything he just said i mean taty says the face of baseball. They want to spread it around. We still have a whole second half offense to watch and we don't need to give to awards to one guy is fantastic as jacob. Degrom is and he is. He's the best pitcher in baseball much better than garrick. No question about it. But todd seizes the pay here for me. He has twenty eight homers and seven seventy four game..

"grondahl" Discussed on FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball
"Young gomez he left with an injury. Any worry about young gums. Who's been very usable. Catch her in. Like i said a season with not very many usable catches. Yeah you know. I don't i don't know how much of an update we have on gums. But if he's out for any extended period of time for you know if you've had him and he's he's been a a real boon like there's been a few of those catchers late round catchers yet. Audi molina omar narvaez. Yon gums. That were kind of going around pick. You know two fifty to three hundred. Maybe even a little later in some leagues that have really paid off. I think the challenge. That's going to be facing a lot of folks is we've got the grondahl injury you've got the pose injury you've got. The gums injury all happening around the same time and so there might be some competition this weekend. For some of those halfway decent catchers and so the question is going to be do pony up a little bit in fab to get one of those guys If they're even available like if anybody who's who's decent is available on that catcher or you just kind of you know. Throw those one dollar bids in there and hope that you get a guy who happens to get you know a few starts that week It's gonna be it's gonna be tough for a lot of folks so hopefully combs isn't out for an extended period of time about eight years. I think that's gonna pose a lot of challenges. It sounds like a left. Oblique strain is what i'm seeing now got placed on the i l. today so that that's probably four to six weeks right is do you have in every league. Then because i mean that's half that could be half the remaining season. Yeah i think with gomez definitely with with grondahl. It's it's something that i'm struggling with. I have a bunch of ground all in a variety of different places. And it's like they're saying five weeks right now which puts us kind of middle of august. So that's still potentially six weeks of production. You could get from him at the same time. We know with injuries. It's normally on the further end of that Of of the Prognosis you know in so if it if it ends up being sick seven and you're talking about only having a month and then you're talking about having to readjust to getting back in the swing of things it's not a minor injury like an oblique strain or an or a knee and tearing a knee tendon. So i i'm i'm leaning towards dropping grondahl in my leagues right now. A lot of it. I think will depend on what the waiver wire. Looks like but I think it's the same with domes even more so i think you have to move on. If if that's what. It looks like four to six weeks. Then i think you gotta move on at this point as you're going to be it's it's tough to have if you're limited like an f. e. c. two seven guys and especially with cross spects coming up and with the trade deadline and all of these things. You really want to have some flexibility with that roster right now so you probably have to move on from those guys. Yeah i agree. In in what i had said when paul and i talked about grand all last week was that i would likely move on and I in if i had him in. Which i don't i don't personally have him your because i wasn't paying up catcher That being said I would wait until after the all star break right because we're talking about you're not gonna have games for four days this week so or neck or this upcoming week so there's no sense in dropping someone for three game. See if we get more information. Maybe there's an update a you know a guy like john gums. They say it's an oblique. But maybe it's just a little like you know like with ozzy where they're trying to give them time off them reston and then he'll be back You know maybe mid next week or something like that but Yeah i think. I would try to wait and see what happens because you also see people kind of do we are drop sometimes and maybe a better catcher comes onto the margin. You wanna waste assets Necessarily so i if it's me on spending a dollar on a catcher just for the weekend next week and then i'm going to kind of reassess you know. Nc what's on the waiver. Wire the phone carlos correa he. It's the covert l apparently It's the they've gone health and safety protocols. I think we all know what that means. This point Hopefully this is just a close contact. Type thing. not serious We're talking about korea but any concerns with this. You know. I haven't heard any additional information. These things can be one day things right. It could be a close contact sometimes even just having cove it like symptoms. They'll put them on the on the safety protocols so it's really hard to know at this point. I think you know again. It's carlos correa. So you're probably gonna you're sticking with him and you just gotta hope that it's only you know three three games next week that he's gonna miss and then he'll be back or you know he could be back for by the end of the all star break so and he also talked about. I know he's missing the all star. Break the all star game because he wants to spend more time with his wife. His wife is pregnant They're expecting a child soon. So i i'd be. I'd be surprised it was anything to to lengthy. Yeah i can deliberate unmortgaged talk more about him in the first half euros because he has been a nice little surprise this year though i don't know how surprised we should have been right at carlos. Correa dude has been great in the vast let's Let's start with these first. I i don't think there's anybody more surprising than adults garcia this year. Because i'll be quite honest. I didn't know who does garcia was coming into the year. I doubt most people had any idea Who adores garcia was But he's been fantastic. It's been uneven. If you go and look like his month on splits it to forty two in april.
"grondahl" Discussed on Yanks Go Yard: A New York Yankees podcast
"I love all star economic cited. jason dominquez. I'm much more excited for that. That i am for whatever the astros are doing to us. against us or to us over the weekend Jason mingas the futures game very exciting. He's barely played professional. Baseball is eighteen That'll be cool. Louise medina's going to i believe From not mistaken. Let me look that up right now. I'll move on with my own podcast and talk about other things in the all star festivities. This is going to be great. Homerun derby by the way no yankees in it. And you don't you don't need to take your turn your attention to that fully Also i saw talking. Jake bring up a great point white. Concentrating earth isn't the homerun derby on saturday in the all star game on sunday. I dunno enjoy the monday derby in the tuesday. All star game Everybody's favorite days to watch baseball. Get in front of your t i. I love the my favorite activities in general growing up. I'm like an all star game. Historian i'm also a freak so you don't have to be an all star game historian but i am and i. I've long loved it. And i don't really know why it's on tuesdays louise medina and the futures game too Got that nasty. Hook some of the best stuff in the minors Trust me on sunday. You're gonna wanna watch that. 'cause you're definitely not gonna wanna watch as astros. You don't absolutely have to. I recommend you not Medine is going to be a sick watch. Dominguez better play in that game. If he doesn't start the managers know what he's doing. The futures game is usually a coming out party for these guys but like in a major way for dominguez. He's got like one. I think he's got one professional hit. It's shame he's walked in like half or more of his plate appearances he's played like four or five games at the lowest level of the minor leagues. A lot of people got their hopes up when the yankees eliminated their short season team in staten island. That's gone and so was pulaski in the league. And are there's nowhere to bury dominguez. Now he's gonna start at low a. Tampa or maybe high hudson valley and there was like an even in eroneous report about that but no these in like the lowest lowest lowest lowest level so this will be not only. He's coming out party on a national stage but like one of his first. Ten professional games will be the future game. Good luck dude. That'll be very fun to watch. So i'll be tuning and then of course to the game. I i wanna see. Aaron judge guy probably could use a statement his homer off max scherzer in the two thousand eighteen game is one of those certified moments you remember on still holding out hope. The gary sanchez makes the team. I think he deserves it Yazmin grondahl is out. Mike zeno is the only backup catcher on the roster. And i guess you need more than one backup catcher and the all star game but if everyone's dropping out any way it'd be nice to bring gary sanchez along. Who is definitely had. The kind of all star bounceback season. That deserves rewarding. At least ceremonially..

"Know how he's done it but you know he's going to be a popular kind of replacement Austin barnes place regularly enough. he's you know somewhat decent the the cubs just signed torino's To a one year deal because all of their catchers outside of wilson contracts richard. Yeah so he. He'll get some playing but like yeah. I mean it's it's pretty gross. Jake rogers i mentioned eric. Rogers like the starting catcher hospitals in. But they can also play in the outfield. And that's why they have that. You know tom murphy and wrens. I know Either or has been available in a lot of leagues. So there's there's there's some names it's not going to be great. But i will say this. You didn't lose batting average so taking one of these batting average slugs is not the end of the world. Because it's not like he was grondahl. Was doing anything for you you know. Yeah so i definitely think like okay. I can get somebody who's hitting to eleven and that's actually an improvement over what what grondahl was doing but with the jimenez rehab going to be out. Probably spend most of the the rehab down there. What is your expectation from him. When he comes back. I mean my guess is that you know. They're going to be kind of careful with them. He is a huge piece of their futures. So i don't think they're going to bring it back if he's not ready to go. I kind of expect him to be eli when he comes back in. So if those of you who have stashed him on your i els Good for you. Because i think what you're going to get a nice little. Infusion it's alan about the league's raise available what are you. What are you putting in there. I think you should have grabbed him a few weeks ago when you could have gotten for a few bucks easy to say now. Yeah it's not easy to stash a guy like that in the nfc format by the way they took them off the board in my mind. He was off the wall before the draft in my main event. So i guess he'll come back out when he's when when he always officially back. Should i save for that. I might if you don't need anything like in particular right now. You've got a really strong team. You're in first place. And you're you're really looking at the overall or yoyo saying if i have those things if will know if you do and i know you are in that situation in your main so yeah i think i would probably try to save a fair amount of my money to kind of go really strong on a guy like yayoi for the further. You know final stretch. I'm fifth and cash and there's some quality a lot of the people that have more money are in the mix. It's not it's not the guys at the very bottom including robbed. epa tro. he's sitting there with a few more bucks than me and He's in fifth and so i wonder if he'll be looking at him. You know hittings not my biggest need but it's eli freaking jimenez. Yes you're not gonna get a talent like this off the waiver. Wire i mean it's it's really vidal brouhaha and then this and i think that's going to be your main town source off. Wanted to side with team to right and if you need the speed or if you need the power or and if you need the infusion of talent right now or you can wait upwards or if you need an infielder versus outfielder right. 'cause route brouhaha lay second so You know that may just figure team construct better. But i do think he's someone if can pick them up now you need to go pick them up and just try to stash them for the next few weeks or if you you have to wait until he's actually up then yeah you can save a little bit of foul is available in my teaching. Fbi league doesn't surprise me and it's it's interesting. sitting right. There is eighty one percent roster. He's two percent started. So you need to find. Who's starting him kick that person out of tgi beans. They clearly have not changed their lineup. That's my that's my guess. I'm out here raton on fools. I'm sorry but Fixture lineups anyway. Let's move on. We are in a little bit of a time budget here rowdy till has traded to milwaukee and everyone did the obvious but still funny sometimes. An obvious joke is still very funny. the spiderman meam with him in vogel bach very easy but excellent. I still laughed. Very heartily Because that's basically what he is right he. He's basically filling in for vocal bach. Who's hurt and he is vocal. Bach right yeah. And i think this might be a little bit of a long term. Play too with the idea that the h. will be here in twenty twenty two. Yeah so i mean this whole now help for this year at all a little bit. Yeah connected right. Manfred gets drunk at the all star game. You know what nationally needs the age man man. I'm sorry you know listen. We took away spider tak. We're gonna do a trade okay. We can keep the spider attack but you can end the that's cool. It's cool yes the second half of the i love to lead coming into the air. Those strikeout gains last year. I thought had some viability to them. Not that he was going to maintain a sixteen percent strikeout rate but he was at twenty eight percent before that and i thought he could be closer to the sixteen than the twenty eight. I thought somewhere in the low twenties would be great with his power profile. Takes you know takes a few walks. Nothing crazy but i thought we could see a breakout from him. This year and it not come to fruition. He did the strikeouts actually did go where i thought. Twenty two percent fine but he has a one twenty five. I so in sixty three. Wrc plus Do you see a surge here nonetheless. They're going to actually play him and my thought was they. Were making the trade so they could send casting here back down to the minors. That hasn't happened quite yet. You know it might have been though 'cause since that little league burst. We got from cousin here when he first came up. He's been a tragedy in weird. Who could have seen that. Yeah who surprise possibly could have seen that besides everybody so. Yeah i want to be good but my goodness i do think we could see Till as fairmont playing time here moving forward is especially if they do make a move gives me the also jas peterson. Starting second base with. Hey relax he had homerun off the ground yesterday. Oh no joe hall actually. Well no joke though. He's actually out of his mind right now..
"grondahl" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Yeah don't laser focus on framing the way that we have but i'm pretty confident that if you were to give me that test trying to remember if i ever did that in an article or sam did or someone did. I'm usually the first to say that. Although i went to scout school i'm the furthest thing from a scout but when it comes to framing i think if i took a test like that i would do pretty well. I hope someone wants to send it to me. I'll i'll take it but just having written about it and talked to players about it so much done of this week in catcher framing series episcopal perspectives. For awhile i've watched so many framing gifts. That i think i could recognize it pretty well. Now i understand. That's probably a a niche skill. I think that you would not you think that like our listeners. If they have doubts pick it up more quickly than they imagine because when most people are watching you know. They're watching an at bat from the center field. Camera there watching the hitter more than they're watching the catcher and so part of it is as you said just focusing your attention in a different spot and then you will really be like. Wow that guys good or wow no is not an yeah. I think that you start to pick up on the the nuances pretty quickly and the nice thing is that it's just so many pitches or gain so you get a lot of reps really really fast if you wanna if you wanna try to hone in on sort of who's good and who's bad and if you're trying to do that in you're interested like i would start in a simple way and just look at the leaderboards who is actually a good framer and watch them specifically and see kind of what they do and go back to the leaderboard and find a bad framer so that you have something to compare and contrast you. It's like you know if you were if you're going to a game and you're sitting behind home plate and you were like trying to put grades on fast on breaking balls and you'd never seen a good one before. How could you do that so go watch a good name first and then watch you know the people who are gonna catch for the white sox from now on and you'll kind of get a sense of just come back soon. Yes money grondahl. Yeah that's that's how framing techniques have circulated around the majors even having talked to some catcher zoo cave emulate this guy who's good at framing. Maybe he goes down to one knee or whatever it is. I will borrow that technique. So i saw some quotes from stasi in otani in madden saying nice things how they worked together and how he called a game so i hope that that becomes the routine. Not that i have anything against kurt suzuki as person i'm sure he's a nice guy but Yeah i'd rather be watching stasi with otani is i'm hanging on. Every pitch and a tiny threw two pitches that i think were slower than sixty eight miles per hour. He through a couple slow curves his to slowest pitches of the season. Sixty seven point seven and sixty seven point eight and he had one sequence where it was like. Sixty eight mph curveball. Ninety eight mile per hour fastball packed. Back it makes for a beautiful pitch overlay gift. So i'd recommend that people check that out. So i just want to end with a quick step last year related to something that happened this week doodles awesome based so jake. Arrieta had his second straight disaster. Adding for the cubs wasn't.
"grondahl" Discussed on FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball
"Eighty one games. Three hundred thirty seven plate appearances for brian reynolds. He's out of his mind right now. He's been excellent and they've actually formulated a decent little top of that lineup. There between reynolds frazier and and brian hayes. Who i know you. You liked as well so he did at least get one pirate okay. So they ain't got two of the three pieces that have been killing it but all three of them have been really good and you mentioned gambles catching fire for them. They picked him up off the scrap heap. So they're not a good lineup. They're not scaring any way shape or form not even with the destruction that they put out yesterday but they do have a few guys that are cooking and reynolds is one of them. I guess we're. I'm really curious what you think you can do. The rest of the year seeking keep up a lot of what he's doing. I don't know that he's gonna hit for another fifteen home runs or anything. But i think you get add in eight to ten and hit close to three hundred rests away which makes him insanely valuable especially even even though like the pirates lineup sucks and it's probably going to get worse that trade deadline because they need to move frazier the season he's having and then they might even consider moving. Reynolds reynolds is twenty six. He's not going to be part of the next great pirates team So like they could consider moving him and just getting like a hall. They'd have to get yes. Something like super elite. No because he. He's not eligible free agency until twenty twenty six. Yeah so that team control is is very valuable for somebody like him. So but i mean he will be aren't eligible for the first time next season you know they don't like paying anybody so i ki- could be a guy that you know like maybe atlanta or chicago. Socks would be interested in reynolds. Got into a high quality lineup. That would be nuts. Even a team like the yankees would. Yeah probably love to have him. Considering hicks you know Is been injured. They've been running out guys like brett gardner and stuff like that so they have a they have a history of trading their pirates pirates yankees now organizationally not necessarily what this pirates for an office that we started on. Oh yeah that's right. That's right this past offseason so i don't know maybe there's something there but If reynolds or frazier got out of there. I think their stock obviously goes up. Because they're they're run scoring runs driven in has a great chance to improve. So i just wanted to shine a light on reynolds man. He's been a top ten outfielder. Where do you think he finishes the in terms of outfield. Probably talk thirty thirty okay. Let's say top twenty. Five was the range i was going to ask. You can hold. I think so too i think so too. I think he. I think the power is going to taper down a little bit but for the most part i think he's i think he's legit and i. I've been enjoying what he's been doing. Switch hitting and killing it. So shouts out to brian reynolds. Let's play a little holder. Fold here before we get out and let's talk about our excuse me or skipping hollander. Fold this week or this this episode to talk our free agent pickups that we keyed in on this week and i'll start with mine and i was big on gavin sheets man. I ended up over paying a little bit. Because i really wanted to ensure i got him and you know sometimes when you make a ban on somebody and you end up being way over the next one you can be comforted fronted by looking at the rest of the nfc leagues and seeing. Okay if i been like a bunch of other leagues. I would have needed to go this high in mine. I didn't have to. So i ended up paying what of that. Pay fifty one for him and got. I'm getting the number fifty. One for gavin sheets in the main and the backup was seven but then there were a few leagues. Where i wouldn't have even gotten him for that and then a handful of others with backup bids that were much more in line with that so i just happened to get a little unlucky but i don't regret it i really don't i want to ensure i got him and i'll tell you why i think this guy could be really nice here gavin sheets. Obviously he's got the blood lineage. I i like blood lineage. You know it's not something that. I base my entire team around like the blue jays but i do. I do think it's something that that is notable. But i love the skills that this guy has. He doesn't strike out a lot for somebody with such power now for the most part it's been raw power. They call it five o'clock power. The the batting practice he can crush it. He starting to bring it in the game. Power though a one eighty ice oh and aaa this year off to a really fast. Start in the majors with a three sixty i so i don't expect that to continue. But what i like is because he makes so much contact even if the power is fully there and he does maybe round out to somewhere in the the one seventy to one ninety eyeso- range it could be with a good batting average and in a great lineup in chicago. And they've only been putting him in in the to spot a bunch like they're already entrusting him to a pretty high but now moncada's back so he's going to. He's going to dip back down with moncada's injury but i liked that they entrusted him with that for a weekend. Set will probably end up adding their six especially with grondahl injury. Now or maybe fourth wise brian goodwin banning fourth. I don't know. But i like gavin sheets man and first base outfield. So we got. We got that infield outfield capability. I felt i feel like he's somebody who can be a contributor to the rest of the year on this white sox team so i went out and got him in a bunch of leagues. Yeah i don't have a problem with it. I think it's more of a short term play. Because like i said i think the white sox will be a team. That's in on a number free agents or or trade candidates but my counter to that would be they have multiple spots to turtle. I don't think it takes sheets out. Sap they got. Brian brian goodwin. It'll be like a rotation of all the guys who've been playing regularly like the sharpie. She's a little bit of sheets. A little bit of brian. Goodwin some billy hamilton. Some ataman goal. You know While they rotate guys in utilize worked as way back re Roberts working his way back as well so they both likely to make it back this year. I think they are. I think eli before robert. But i think they're both doing baseball activities to believe. Now.
"grondahl" Discussed on Starting9

I don't know that it's long enough to be in podcast form. But i believe we put that on the youtube page as well right. Yeah and that would mean that. I like that like i would have to sustain some sort of level of conversation with hubs. Point can't do that can't do that. To check out the youtube page monte grondahl interview coming up and also So we had a little discussion the other day about how we were going to handle this. Because when we went to the all star game in twenty nineteen and cleveland dallas. And i were down the field. We got a bunch of content before the game and then we went to the game. We kinda just watch the game. We saw the beads fulfills prophecy. That we put in place here on the starting nine podcast breakfast with beads. We spoke it into existence. Him winning the mvp. But i think what we're going to win the mvp correct. I think what we're gonna do this time around. Is our watch party slash i. I don't think we're going to do a live podcast. They will be a mike setups. I think we'll probably do like a qna for a little bit with the fans it'll be interactive will absent giveaways and when i was talking to you about the Like the first half recap and stuff.

Well dallas and i. We're not going to go to the game. We wanna hang out with you guys. So we're going to do a little Watch party slash podcast brothers bar which is right near chorus field. And i'll come on. Because i figured the game watching the game and jour-jour kinda like lately this out watching the game around fans at the bar.

We're gonna be throwing some debts down like there's going to be a it's gonna be a great time in the establishment. Five want to be at the homerun derby the we'll be at the dirty. We'll be at the derby. I wanna put my life on the line that there'd be no doubt chorus field. Those things are fucking raining from the sky But yeah i mean to to to the point about when we went to the all star game. I mean you're you're sitting in your seats. And i mean we. We were way up there time. So it's like you're you're You're pretty much designated to the same crowd and those people they may or may not be starting nine people we go to. We go to a bar where we're inviting our folks out. I mean that's going to be a rowdy crowd. We're going to be surrounded by the grounds crew and So head on down and down of course field for the all star game come chilled us. Brothers bar eight. Pm for the whole game will be there.

You know is that what happens. You and i ended up talking. We have this long extended conversation. These exchanges this banter. And then you end up jumping in the shower. Such yourself up thinking to your boy deep hollow. It does happen sometime. My best thinking happens in the shower about me is that we're i mean. Sometimes you come up. Sometimes you come up there for sure about business ideas for things we can do for starting nine but that's one of them. That's one of them's this. Watch party at brothers bar and we're gonna head over there on our scooters and we will have our all star game attire ready to go. I can't wait so that means that we're going to have to.

"grondahl" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Just checking in on some of the latest headlines from the White Sox some of the big issues going on a tweet from Darryl Van Scow in of The Sun Times, who's in Detroit, covering the White Sox right now is got the latest And Yasmani Grandal. This is about an hour ago. Tony LaRussa should talk with reporters soon for his pre game press conference, but last night yes, Mani Grandal. Really in the month of June has been the guy for the White Sox offense. There have been contributors elsewhere. No doubt about it being big hits in other places, for sure. Yes, Monty Grandal has been that guy for the White Sox. He has been every bit Of what he hoped he could be. What sucks fans thought he could be with projections thought he could be in the month of June and now into July. Last night. He left the game after an R B I single and scoring from first on a Brian Goodwin triple. With a calf issue. Uh, probably a strain. I don't know for sure there was further testing going on. Caravan Scout of the Sun Times Tweeted an hour ago. The Grandal's on the field, testing the calf running around a little bit, which he says Darrell says it's likely a good sign. And I agree with Daryl. If he weren't running, that would be a bad thing. He is running. That's a plus. He's not in the lineup today. In fact, Tony LaRussa last night in the postgame Mentioned right off the bat that there would be no more baseball for Yasmani Grandal this weekend against the Tigers. Discretion being the better part of valor there, of course. So in the lineup today, Tim Anderson, it's short leading off Gavin Sheets. At first, Jose Bray was Somehow been convinced the D H. Andrew Vaughn is in left. They are E. Garcia isn't right. Jake Burgers at third. 789 or Billy Hamilton in center field. Zach Collins catching Danny Mandic at second base. Sebby Zavala. Triple A on the 40 Man roster has been removed from the lineup last night in Charlotte, and that was to protect him and bring him to Detroit. If a roster move is necessary. If yes, Monte Grondahl needs to hit the injured list. The White Sox will obviously need a second catcher. That guy is going to be savvy Zavala if that roster move needs to be made. We'll let you know when we know, but that's obviously a big piece of conversation. As it regards the White Sox at this point of the season. Still what I think is absolutely wild. Has been the last three weeks of offense for the Chicago White Sox. From June 13th through the 19th. You're the run totals. In seven games. They scored four than to than three. Than eight. Then two, then one than three. 3.29 runs per game. And in that week of baseball, they played all seven days. There are three and four From the 20th to the 26th two weeks ago. Remember the tone of White Sox weekly two weeks ago, right in the middle of a sweep against the Houston Astros sweep at the hands of the Houston Astros to be more accurate. You're the run totals 234327. 21 runs 3.5 runs per game. The White Sox for two and four that In this week. Fewer games, no doubt about it, but we still got to play this afternoon's game to even come close and there's been an off day but in four games Seven runs 13 runs. Eight runs twice nine runs per game. On foreign oil. Have won their last five. It's just wild. How quickly things turn around and There's a bunch of factors attached to it. It's not just A couple of big sticks have come around for the White Sox Tim Anderson. You know, there's still a little bit of a scuffle here in the last few weeks. Same with Jose Brave you Wan Moncada has been you don't hurt again and won't play this weekend against Tigers. Also seeing some larger trends and forces in major league baseball that are Dropping the spin rate in total from pitches. We've talked a lot about the ban of the sticky stuff. How much that matters. How much that provides extra production from offenses all across baseball still up for debate. We need to see a little bit more. I think a couple more weeks before we really figure out what kind of effect that's had. On offenses, but it looks Like things are ticking up league wide. Also getting hot. Getting real warm. That helps offenses. It just does. I mean, that's you know, we've we've proven that over time. Better weather hot weather specifically. Helps offenses. All of this has kind of come at a time where The White Sox could have, you know, Let's be honestly they needed some of those external forces to kind of act on their club and maybe raise some offense that's helped. It was Definitely more interesting and absolutely more fun to talk about. Is the fact that Each one of the guys. The White Sox have called up. Sheets Burger von to a certain degree, and I know it's not quite the same category. Mended, have Contributed In big ways. Let's not just limited to the bats. Brian Burke has been really good out of the bullpen for the White Sox. Since his being reactivated from Tommy John surgery. Give it up like three hits. Hasn't given up.
"grondahl" Discussed on The Steve Matthes Show on RacerX
"We talk the scenes right surrogate they were Mike grondahl was. I think he was more less meant to be and this is on his terms. I think he just wanted to be silent. Partner think he was not wanting to get involved in day to day operations kinda just on bigger picture. I had interact with mike but not as much right so yeah concealed. The goes part of a political skill of race team of a sports team. Whatever it is managing up and making sure that your bosses are happy. And they're thinking big picture through because you're you're working on a on a micro level day to day at the shop mechanics suspension guys and honda. Yeah a lot of that is a lane that you're gonna stay in but still it's got to be. Sometimes you gotta be like okay. I got a. I got a handle on this stuff. You know so. Yeah all the the crazy thing that i don't. I don't know that you know your average viewer of supercross race or whatever truly understands that you know you look at someone successful in the two fifty close today that was kinda put in motion. Obviously you know they've been training old life coming up through the ranks but if they're successful with a particular team on a particular platform bike. That plan was pretty much put in motion. You know four or five years earlier and so you've got a whole orchestration with like okay. This guy's probably gonna point out or this guy's gonna reach a certain age move to a four fifty and we don't want to be left with a hole so we want to have incoming talent but you kind of too many young coming talent or you're gonna have like four images in sports for two of them. So why invest in the two guys. If you're just gonna give them off to another team so yeah there's a lot to behind the scenes. Oh absolutely ziggy and jeff. Were you know putting a lot of thought into that in. And sometimes i was involved in some of those stations. How tough did the carbureted to the f. One had the too big of a carburetor on it and bog like crazy. Make your life or did you just toss that rating put a smaller one on we start with a small cobb for the most part I think i drove dan. Rear crazy. yeah we had good communication and he was a great test rider out. And so i constantly we kept with the smaller cobb for the most part right and every now and then i would bring the big cobb out with like some sort of new significant rain. Afloat ball or a really off the charts jetting or something or we did a lot of the. I remember wiring remember wiring the cam and everything and then having a zero zero step diaphragm on the bottom. Oh my god kibi. I i remember that you pioneered a lot of this right..

The pitch from Cole is a fastball ground of the right side and threw in a base hit alluded route Dead, Oh, door who was shaded up the middle and a Brady you grounds went into right field and a leadoff single to start the White Sox second per year meet Mercedes. That two seam fastball least it had that action to it. Moving from left to right. It was starting out on the outside corner, and they just came over towards a little bit of a bit too much. But a bre you I love the approach there. They know Gerrit Cole is tough. They know it's going to be hard to score runs off of him. And here you have a power hitter that decides in a no account. I'm gonna shorten up and go the other way. Get somebody on base. Try to get something going offensively. The set. Cole checks first shortly for Bre you and call nails.

"grondahl" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"I heart radio goes one on one with Carlos Santana to discuss help. Passion contributes to Santana's longevity by the grace of God. You know, we have not less passion fire, Asai said before. For some reason, a lot of musicians are age. They reduce yourself to embers. You know, And somehow we go into the room and you hear Tornado fire? No, I mean like white heat, So I love that the passion in the willing to play that note with the intensity of that if you die getting that note Then guys start to die. You don't get it, you know, And it sounds like that because you can't get a sound like that. Unless you're willing to put all of it in it, too. To the point of like, if you get a stroke by getting it, then get the stroke. No and go the collective sound of each musician. When we play like that people gonna feel it. Keep listening to I heart radio firm or Santana and all your favorite artists. Mm. 7 21 700 WLW. It's you Create sports talk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet. Let's let's kind of split the segment clean up the Reds, adding some Bangles and Let me give you and I don't have my sheet. I'm gonna join Votto sheet. It's at home. But just for argument's sake, since most people simply point when they point to Votto will point to his home runs the 0.0.0.0.2 home runs or RB ice. They won't look at O P s are on base percentage or anything like that. Joey Votto in Ah Played 60 last year and Joey played See Joy played 55 games in a hitting 11 home runs. So projection of about 33 home runs over 162 games, But Joey hit as many home runs last year is Anthony Rizzo, as many as Trevor Story. As many home runs is J t real Moto. Eyes many home runs as Louis Robert of the White Sox. He hit more home runs than Francisco Oakland or drove in more runs than Francisco Odland or hit a hit for a higher batting average. Then Francisco Linda or had a higher on base that I realized they play different positions, but I'm just looking for a little context to Joey Votto season being awful in so many people's minds. When they don't actually look to see how it compares to everybody else in in baseball last year, it is what he is. He's 37. He's under contract for 25 million this year. 25 million the next year, 25 million the year after that, and then if they want to buy him out, which they will it'll cost him seven million to buy him out after that. Joey Votto is O. P s was 800 last year. That is better than Christian Yelich. Cody Bellenger. Nick Castano's a U N e u Suarez. He has money, grondahl. I can keep going down the list of guys who Anthony Rizzo Francisco Indoor Miguel Cabrera, Nolan a Renato Joey Vados O. P s was higher than Nolan Aaron Otto's last year. Just it just bugs me when people don't have context, what they're saying about Votto, and it makes me come off sounding like I'm an apologist for bottle and I probably am, But I just gave you fax. They're not even opinions. I'm not going. I'm not even arguing the debate of it beyond just what his numbers were last season. Just look at his numbers. Carlos Dunlap was on CBS radio last week and said something that caused Meteo make note of it and say, all right, I gotta find that cause I'd like to play and get some fans reaction. Here's Carlos on CBS radio last week when asked about This situation here in Cincinnati. Do you think Zach Taylor and then also Lou? Do you think they're building something in Cincinnati for the future? I can't answer that question. I don't have that experience. I just know that they're committed to whatever their vision is. And it is clear that you know. I was not one of those pieces and you know, it seems like a J. And Gino's time is coming, too. So I guess it's a changing of the guard they want. They want new faces. And you know they are the face, so that is what it is. At this point. I just control what I can, and that's Who I am what I do and how I play Carlos Dunlap last week, CBS Sports Radio using that term changing of the guard a red been baby today Find Bangles beat writer for ESPN dot com.

"grondahl" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"And what did you notice from in the last two years off offensively, because I know he was a miserable in Detroit and then the last two years have been much better at the plate. Like what's one a couple of big things you've noticed? It's been different while his hands are more quiet at the plate than they were before, and he it's weird because I thought that there might be a chance that he'd stay on the South side, but with the offer that the Mets game and there's no way The White Sox were going to pay for both Grondahl and for McCann Tioga both be catchers, but he's been good at keeping his hands quiet and being and more of an attack mode. At the plate, but behind the plate. Like what? You're getting inside the clubhouse with him. What you're getting behind the plate The way he calls, I'll give you a perfect example. What I'm talking about Anthony. This year, Lucas Giolito threw a no hitter, right. He's one of the couple no hitters that was thrown this season. He shook off McCann once. Not you. Yeah. I mean, that's that's the type of confidence that he instills in starting pitchers. So between that you're right about the Met's getting better up the middle. I think that they have put themselves in a great position if they can get George Springer In there. The nationally East to me is a fascinating place that it is a division that is going to be ultra competitive, and I think a lot of fun. To watch it's super wild cards Sunday. On CBS Sports radio, and there's also a national championship game that's.
Trump sticks with his threat to impose tariffs on Mexico
"Now donald trump is sticking with his threat of imposing a five percent time on mexico next week and tweet the u._s. president haitao to senate my not leader chuck schumer fisa jesting he's bluffing at the same time the mexican leader andress manuel lopez overdue has been more optimistic expressing hope that a compromise can be found well famo- own the booth trade story pretty bags u._s. politics editor kathleen hunter joins us this morning when he gets to speak to you kathleen the the mexican saying that hopeful the president note say much and the pay set down three tenths of one percent this morning i think maybe part of the optimism on mexico side comes from what we're seeing on capitol hill there's been a very strong push from republican lawmakers on capitol hill to try to essentially use legislative legislative vehicle to thwart trump's plans to impose these tariffs on mexico given that this is coming from the republican controlled senate obviously from trump's own party i think that indicates that you know whether or not whether trump likes it or not there could be the u._s. can be putting the brakes on these tariffs yeah but at the same time the president dismissing of the grand grondahl policy descend over mexico tariffs as food so how do you see this vulva catholic well i think you know trump is not necessarily known for his nose counting skills when it comes to you know figuring out where the votes are in capitol hill's yeah that's not i mean it's not as strong suit and so i think that somebody's i'm not surprised that he is pushing back on that but i don't know that that necessarily means if the votes aren't there we're seeing pretty widespread republicans support and i would imagine number of democrats if not all of them would side with the republicans they wouldn't even need that many republicans okay osa of course many fronts in the trade when it comes to china they've hit a small fine own foods joint venture in china and also move about iran us exports as the u._s. oversee concerned about this the more issues now between china and the u._s. definitely and i think one sort of upcoming event to watch over the weekend whether steven mnuchin in japan at the at the twenty with the whether he sits down with his chinese scattered counterpart and if there is any kind of official or you know on the sideline sort of meeting that could lay the groundwork for a broader deal when trump and g are expected to sit down later this month at the g twenty leaders summit and so i think that's what to watch next certainly it's getting more and more dicey as base go by it's surprising to see elizabeth warren in agreement with president trump on the donor kathleen is i think this is one of these instances where we almost kind of see the left the far the fringes of the left in the fringes of the right those extremes kind of kind of mean in the middle meeting around the other side or something and so that is a bit unusual but i think it's one of these issues where they're both kind of being consistent with their their framework and they're you know kind of prism of looking at monetary policy and so i think that that's in somebody's not surprising but a bit unusual yes yeah indeed says she's talked about calling for the dollah to be actively managed basically and she is she is a democrat candidate soy candidate for the democratic party but she is one of she's one of a big failed although this is quite an eye catching policies an absolutely and i think what we're seeing from folks like elizabeth warren who are in the democratic field but now consists of closest dozen candidate is really an attempt to distinguish themselves from the other candidates on so i think that that could be part of what's going on here in terms of at least the timing of this

His Conforto that all changes here yelich goes deep and the brewers lead at five zero one he is now tied for the most home runs before may first in major league history that is his fourteenth Dinger of the year in the fifth inning is the brewers.

Robert gazelle machine comes on to pitch I battery faces. Hey, Seuss Aguilar. He strikes out. But then Ben gambled. Doubles Lorenzo Cain lined up to the second hour of the day intentionally walked Christian yelich to get to Mike loose dacas. Basell brings home the pitch and Mushtaq is ground. Paul left side that's gonna get through into left field. Gambles around thirty is gonna try to score. No throw coming and move stock is drives in another. It's six to one brewers. Brandon Woodruff would be done after five innings. He gives up just one run on six hits junior. Garrett comes into pitch in the sixth inning throws a scoreless. Six brewers would get into a little bit of trouble though in the seventh inning. Alex Wilson comes onto pitch ipad or he faces. I'm Ed Rosario Rozario for two and hope for five the series. It's one torch right-center long run, Lorenzo Cain. Over as head. And this one is going to be gone all run for a metro sorrow and the Mets at around at sixty two next hitter. Travis d'arno pitch from Wilson ride in the left field line is headed for the corner. It's a fair ball off the wall gamble gets too quickly. Fires into second base. Here's at the tag is in time. They got Dr no not perfect draw from Ben Gammel. Yeah. They get them at second that ends up being a huge play, especially when you consider how the rest of this ending would go down. Dominic. Smith comes up as a pinch hitter. He would walk and that would end the day for Alex Wilson. Alex Claudio comes in would give up a base hit Jeff mcgeough or there's also a throwing error on the play next hitter. After that as pita Lonzo. Here's the pitch. Fly ball field. Gambled back. This ball is gone. He Alonzo homerun. Number nine and just like that. It's a one run game. Yes. Six five.

Greece. Kamilia comes into pitch for the Mets per battery phases. Ben gamble. He walks Lorenzo Cain. Then gets Basit runners on at the corners for Christian yelich on yelich pitch chopper. First base side. It is a fair ball gambles coming home. He's gonna score yelich beats the Piat. I it's an infield single.
