One of his teammates, a captain on that team. It's been in the front and Bennett the back end 31 in there and 97 3 and two on Kim, and I'm sure Dan's able to you know, over time help. Players like Alex Reyes sort of make the transition in terms of mentality and tell the difference between a starter and closer and how you go about things. Right hander rocking into a set position now kicks and fires and he misses low ball four and he has walked the leadoff man, so that's 18 walks in 20 innings. Given up and again that you love the arm on you love this stuff, and you love the fact that he's gotten all the saves. But your margin for air is so much smaller when you're giving up about a walk for in it. Maybe that's his comfort zone. You get somebody on base. All right, distracts him a little bit. Doesn't think too much and then executing. Which is it means just that, er, a 0.45 doesn't seem like it's sustainable with all the you know the rate of free passes issued, but he gets it done.

Tuo low again, and it bounces away from Molina. But he hustles after it about 15 ft to his left, and Kim will not risk it, so he's still at first, But it is three and oh, Now on and really Thank you for the Cardinals. Now, with walk at issued 25. There's three games. Syriza's that ties the most. They've given up in a three game series since 1900. There's a generous strike on the inside corner three and one or they would have set a record They don't want to set. Padres five, Cardinals three Runner at first, nobody out bottom a snap throw to first and diving back in his Kim, looking ahead to the top of the ninth inning.

One of those huge kangaroo hops, office seed or a railing or something, and some lucky fan caught it on the second balance the easy banks Now time requested by and really, it's a play.

Yes, he did. Runner was going on the play and is in there safely on a very awkward looking slide. By Kim Feet first wound up lying flat on his back, and he's rubbing his left knee now, and he's a little bit shaken up. That was not a good look and slide out of second base when he does steal the base, trying to look at a replay here and see what happened. First of all, nasty backhanded picked by Molina. Come up and have a shot at camp. That could have easily gotten the backstop. Use left foot might have stuck on the bag. Little bit. Maybe. Yeah, I think it seemed that way they have. It's all right. Yeah. Brian O'Grady over one, and he'll take a fast ball low. One ball one strike so Kim in scoring position with one out of the bottom of the eighth. The potteries already up 5 to 3. Grady struck out back in the sixth inning. We have. The bench has been getting used a lot, even by national League standards. In the last couple of nights, Watto in a slow curve bounces in blocked by Molina to another. Any pitches in the dirt. Getting outta your Molina's blocked in his life. There's no telling, you know, I'm gonna say like that 10,000 number you know, it's like that, huh? Out liars, Right? Get out 10,000 hours, 10,000 balls! The dirt. You know, I'm going to say a good Gillian to Ocean for a strike Two and one buddy way were talking between innings. Our friends on the TV side had a shot of Molina in the dugout after his last at bat in the top half of the inning. And I mean, he's locked in right deep in thought locked in brooding a little bit. Maybe that He made it out that his team is in jeopardy of getting swept. But you can see it's easy to see. He cares as much about winning now, as he did when he broke in as a kid way back when, Yeah, I just mean special player. Third of A nice, successful line of catchers and his family from Benji Molina. Jose Molina on Yadi. You know the best of the three and all were very good. 21 fastball. Just down and away Ball three on if you had a hall of Fame vote doesn't get your vote. Yeah, he does. Yeah, I'm with you. Why don't we focus so much right? Because offenses like the name of the game and you want to see you know, short stops and catchers that not only play great defense, but they hit bombs, you know, and I O P s and all that stuff, But Reyes walks another fastball Low ball four second walk. He gives up so 1st and 2nd 1 out with Padres up 53 Bottom eight. Gets tougher to put a number on defense, although I guess it can't be done. Reasonably well. But you know, one of the dominant defensive players at any position over the last 20 years is top of the order Tread Grisham..

"Lindberg of the wringer joined by meg rally of graphs who just finished her chat with grass readers. And now we'll be chatting with be hello mic so i wanted to express my sympathy for blue jays fans for a second before we get to emails and the stat last because as fans and the bluejays are having a pretty tantalizing offseason but also an agonizing offseason like the ratio of rumors to done deals has to be higher for the blue jays than any other team that i was thinking of this wednesday because the blue jays signed their president and ceo mark shapiro to a five year extension. And they're reasons to be pleased about that. I'm sure but that's not really the move. That blue jays fans have been wanting and waiting and hoping for the team to make they want some big star free agent. And the jay's got the offseason started when they resigned robbie ray to a one year deal but that's it that is the only major league move they've made so far and of course there's plenty of time for them to make a major move or to still because as we were saying yesterday there many attractive free agents still unsigned but bluejays came into this winter with pretty high expectations which they set themselves like back in november ross atkins their. Gm said much like last year when we were active and to categorize it as aggressive is relatively fair. We will do that again this year and continued doing it until we are in a position where we're contending year in and year out and then in december shapiro reaffirmed that and he said there's uncertainty in the budget but not as it pertains to major-league payroll. He said whether it's four very good players or two elite players quote. I'm a hundred percent confident. We will get better so they probably still well but the clock is ticking. And i don't know if you've noticed but the blue jays have been connected to just about every player who has signed or traded and every player. Who is not yet signed. But we'll be at some point. I was just browsing the. Mlb trade rumors bluejays tag and you have to click like more posts like ten times to get to the beginning of the obvious and even though they haven't really done anything so just kinda running down the list that. I hope i'm not missing anything here. But the bluejays have been rumored to be talking to the cubs about a kris bryant trade. They've been one of the most. Active teams in expressing interest in george springer. That's been going on for eight years now and it's been like six or seven weeks since they were reported to have quote progressed beyond just talking with finger. Whatever that means. Generally i did it. I didn't expect this time. Maybe it means they made some sort of offer say connected to dj with mayhew supposedly. They're super interested in him. They've been connected to trevor. Bauer whom they met with were said to be meeting with what else they were. Reportedly the runner up in the francisco endure sweepstakes so supposedly they made a ceiling player offered deal but it was players who were on the whole less major league ready than the players the mets offered and so they didn't get endore what else they were interested in hendrix whom we talked about yesterday signed with the white sox hendrix is a former j. and he lives near the team's training camp in florida still so just last week. It was reported that he visited their complex which seemed like it might be the prelude to a deal but it wasn't as it turned out they made an offer to sugano the great japanese starter. Who decided to stay in japan. They also made an offer to hassan. Kim before san diego signed him and supposedly they made him a five year offer so they were really neck and neck in the running for both of those players with the padres they also reportedly offered kevin gassman forty million dollars ish the oath before he accepted san francisco's qualifying offer. So they've been in everyone and if you're a boot as fan you must have just been getting like alerts said push notifications system. i'll offseason. it's like right it's happening. We're getting this guy and then time after time after time they've come in second or third or just missed out on those players and so yellow mayhew still out there and bauer springer's still out there and i would guess that they would get at least one of those guys but thus far it's been sort of a lucy charlie brown football situation for them. Yeah it's shocking if only because there hasn't been that much activity and so them to be you know so often left at the altar is terrible. I'm not gonna further that but for them to so often lose out and seemingly by just a smidge is surprising because it doesn't seem like there's been that much to lose out on. I think that ultimately a team that is motivated to improve through free agency is likely to get what it wants because it can spent it can just spend and they seem committed to doing that and there are still as you've noted a number of very good free agents on the market who fit roster needs on their part yet does have to be extremely frustrating for fans and for members of the bluejays front office. Who i'm sure sitting there going. We're trying to do the thing that everyone says we should be doing. We're trying to do it. Just let us pray. Yeah like it has to be encouraging that they are trying to do this or at least that it's reported that they are because there have been previous winters when they weren't and they weren't really may be in the position to make that big push and then last winter they got hunching view and it seemed like they would continue to do that. They're trying it really. Seems like they're trying but it takes more than just the team being willing to sign a player being interested in player it also takes out getting all the other teams that are trying to sign trade for that player. Takes convincing that player to come to your team so easier said than done even if you are actually trying to do it. So i don't know for the sake of bluejays fans. I hope that they get one of their targets. At least just 'cause that's an exciting young team and they've got a lot of players who were really fun to watch and obviously it's a competitive division and they need to keep pace or catch up with those other teams so yeah hopefully one of these days. One of these dominoes that false will be going to the blue jays. Well and i think also takes free agents being willing not only to come to your team but to come to your team right now and i think that when much of the market is still pretty tepid and frozen. It's it's unsurprising that that things would take a little. While even for the teams that are keen to be active because fewer free agent. And you're sitting there with your your agent an agent agent camera And you're trying to sort out where you're going to sign. You wanna have a complete sense of what your options are. And i imagine that that isn't sort of fully realized for a lot of guys right now because the market has been so slow. So i i hope that their patients is rewarded. Because you said that is a that is a good fun team. And i think that there are a lot of pieces that are really compelling and we've said for a long time that you know what you what you need around that young core are some some good role players and a couple more marquee stars and it feels like they're pretty close to being in a position to you know really make a make a statement even if they have to play in buffalo yen which seems likely. Maybe that's the problem. I think that might be part of the problem..

"Fantastic and joined his always by ben lindberg of the ring ben. How're houria endured. Well i'm kind of confused by this offseason. Don't really understand free agency this year in some ways it's been what we feared or expected in another ways it really hasn't this is prompted by the latest signing one of the highest profile signings. We've seen so far. The white sox signed closer liam hendriks to a contract that it's kinda hard to define really it's sort of a strangely structured contract. Yeah i guess it's most accurate to say. It's a three year fifty four million dollar deal but there is a club option for the fourth year. And so the way it works is that there's a a club option and a buyout. That are both worth fifty million dollars for that fourth year and so he's guaranteed to get the full fifty four million because if they decline then he still gets it and if they pick it up he still gets it and so you would think well. Why would they not pick it up. Why would they want to pay him for nothing less. He's i dunno hurt or completely terrible three years from now or something but there is a reason. I guess because of the way it's structured some of that money is deferred over a ten year period. So the real present day value of the contract is a little lower than fifty four million so they might save some money if they were to not pick up that option and then have to pay him over a long period instead of that year. It's weird but basically fifty four million dollars and that's not really what expected liam hendriks to get now. I'm not gonna say it's unfathomable because he's been the best reliever in baseball over the last couple of years. But i would say it's above expectations and that's been a pattern this year. So we've seen two things happen. We've seen one thing which is a not a lot of activity. It's been slow. Not a lot of the top agents have signed and yet the free agents who have signed seemed to be getting more than people expected for the most part. And i don't know how to square those two things like as just looking at the nfc trade rumors ranking of the top fifty free agents and right now only fourteen of those fifty have signed. Two of those were marcus. Stroman and kevin guzman. Who accepted that. The qualifying offers one of those was hassan. Kim so of the eleven free agents on that list domestic free agents on that list who have signed ten have gotten more than an ob trade rumors projected and in many cases by much more. I think the only exception is greg holland. Who signed to a low dollar deal with the royals. But otherwise it's been all guys exceeding those estimates and that's just one less. I think if you look at craig. Edwards ranking at famed graphs. There's a similar pattern there thinker really anti ranking. Probably so. I know we talked about this. Before when james mcken signed an and he exceeded estimates by considerable margin but now you have hendrix who mlb trade rumors and think also craig had at three years and thirty million he easily exceeded that can easily exceeded cam got a little less than he was projected to get. It's harder to project the player like that coming over from the cape. Yo but you know. Charlie morton mike. Minor who got two years in eighteen was projected for one in six carlos. Santana got two years and seventeen point five was projected for one in six and we could keep going down. The list drew smiley one. Eleven was projected for one in five. So i don't know what to make of that. The estimates just too low. Were we overestimating how bad this offseason would be. Because then how do you square that with the fact that really the pace of signings has been extremely slow. Yeah it's a tricky one to sort out. Because the estimates that we had at fair graphs going into the to the off season and i think this is true across the board when the industry tries to prognosticate in this way. Like we're obviously building in a about what the environment's can be like and so on the one hand you're excited when deals exceed those numbers. When one of the assumptions you have is that the market will be slow and that guys will not find contracts that are necessarily commensurate with their talent. But i think they're still remains the question of whether these contracts and i don't know that hendrix is necessarily the best example of this but if these contracts are in a vacuum good rate if they are actually representative of the market value of the player. Now it wasn't that long ago that drew pomeranz signed a deal for four years and sixty million dollars and i think is the equal of him in terms of talent. So it's it's better. But i don't know if it's necessarily good but it is nice to see that we are avoiding sort of a a worst case scenario when it comes to the market but like you said we also haven't seen a ton of signings i do wonder if with hendrix off the board. If this is going to start moving some of the other also good but less good relievers who are still hanging out there and sort of where the gating factors for each segment of the market are going to end up being but yeah it's a it's a tricky one because if you just showed me the terms i would think oh well. This looks pretty normal. In some cases this is even more than i would expect for that player to get and yet we know that a lot of the top names on the board are still there and they'll get signed somewhere in the next couple of months. When would assume and we've seen flurries of activity late in recent winters..
"hassan kim" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Combine that with the closeness of the projections. You need a decimal point to separate the two teams in the standings. And i don't think it's a stretch to say that this is the best divisional race zips has ever projected going on two decades of prognostications or at least i guess the the top two teams in division so i maybe under sold this if anything i figured okay. The padres have definitely narrowed the gap year. They've brought it to the point. Where if things go right for them things. Go wrong for the dodgers. They could definitely you conceivably catch them but according to the true talent projections right now and dens playing time assumptions. It might be even closer than that one of the great joys of being an assigning editor is that you get to bother people to answer questions for you. They really keen to know. So i went to dan. I was like dan we should. You should redo the padres projection. Gestion please please do that. Because i really wanna know how close it is. And he's like what if i just redid the whole. Nfl west. and i was like. Oh dan that's why you're the best so Yeah it's it's a very exciting thing in the midst of you know an offseason that has been slow and plotting. And that has dan notes a number of teams that have basically announced their fan bases. Like the baseball you're gonna watch next. Year is going to be worse than the baseball. You watched last year to see a team. That's like no we. We see the world the reigning world series champ that consensus best team in baseball. And we we wanna take a run at them and to be as you noted. There's a lot left to be done. And the dodgers are now in the position of being able to respond to what san diego has done. And there's always the lingering looming threat of injury and all sorts of stuff but for them to go into the early part of the new year. Saying no we're we're neck and neck is is just very exciting so i can't wait to see how it plays out i know. Yeah and this relies in part on a very rosy projection for hassan. Kim yes the projection that zips has regenerated for a player from the b o and he's projected as basically a four player per year for the next several seasons would make him an absolute bargain if that turns out to be the case for what they're paying him and would make be questioned whether wasn't more interest in him. And you know with a player coming over from any other league. There's always going to be a little less that we know and and it's harder to translate the stats but there have been more players coming from their recently. So there's more for the system to go on and it really likes kevin. Why wouldn't it based on his numbers and his youth and all of that. But that's even better than i was expecting so if you think that's a little too optimistic and that there might be more growing pains than maybe you can push them down. Push the padres down a little bit but the projections for blake snell and yu darvish seem quite conservative. Sips has the as three wind players basically because pretty low innings estimates. The point is. It's really close. So i am pretty hyped for that race this year. And it's not just this year either. Because dan notes in his post most of the padres core contributors are under their control through at least twenty twenty three and because a lot of their players are young and still in their pre arbitration years. They still have room to maneuver financially. They're more than fifty million dollars a year from the first luxury tax threshold this year. So it just goes to show what you can accomplish if you are willing to be aggressive especially while lots of other teams are not being aggressive at all. You can make major waves and of course. The dodgers are set up really well long-term to yeah it's gonna be really exciting and cash and you have good broadcast booths between the two of them. All speaking of good broadcast booth says going to bring to cause friend of the show. Shabby has a new job or or has added a job to his staple of jobs and he is going to be the new cubs play by play man replacing len kasper on tv. And teaming up with jim shays and men. Chicago is just hogging all the great broadcasters. At this point. I've been to have. We already talked about having jason eddie and len kasper calling games for the same team now. You have boob replacing casper which like there aren't many broadcasters who i would say you could lose lend casper and not lose a whole lot but going from casper tabuk those her to really great broadcasters. The cubs fence will be happy with so been talking about the cubs losing players and personnel. So far this winter at least now they have actually added someone and added someone could so congrats to boo and congrats to cubs fan. Who get to listen to and it seems like from the press release. he's still going to have some involvement with espn so he will not be leaving the national stage either. I don't know if he'll be calling as many games. I guess it would be hard to do that because he was the sunday night. Baseball radio voice and also wednesday night. Baseball person for espn. But he's still going to be doing. Some of that and bouc has called games for a team before i think he was the marlins radio play by play man years ago and i think he was he was also with atlanta for a few years on tv so this is not new for him necessarily. But it's maybe a higher profile local and if people are not already aware of how good burgas i they will be now. I was thinking about whether a local broadcasting gig or a national broadcasting gig leads to more appreciation for a.
"hassan kim" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"But is kind of a bummer right. Nobody wants to get excited about payroll flexibility in atlanta. They wanna get excited about charlie morton and potentially marcelo zuma's. So maybe they should just. They should do that. Be excited about their sport. And then we don't have to have a salary cap or floor and maybe we can skip the confetti altogether. Well i think that also the those. Nba stars are vastly underpaid compared to their value. Yes that's true you know. So they don't need to talk about you know austerity or whatever because know. They're only paying the best players in the game. You know somewhere between thirty and fifty million dollars or whatever it is. i mean. i don't know what you know. Like patrick mahomes whatever deal he designed. It's he's he's more important to the chiefs then. Garrett cole is to the yankees. I can tell you that but patrick mahomes is making less i think than than garrett cole is so especially in guaranteed money. I can't remember exactly what mahomes his contract is. But you get the idea that that those guys are underpaid compared to what their value is you know. That's that's the setup that they've created an baseball hasn't really given in to the owners respect while we have you to together. I wanted to ask you about hassan. Kim who is really intriguing. Free agent who is now available. I think he is being posted on wednesday and as of thanksgiving morning teams will be free to negotiate with him during the thirty eight posting window. And craig you ranked him eighth on your top fifty free agents list and eric. You wrote the player about kim. And i am very eager to see how his skills and performance translate because looking at the stat line. He's a pretty fun and exciting player. He just turned twenty five last month. He's a shortstop and third baseman. Who's been playing in. K b o. And he's coming off his best year yet with a nine twenty one. Ps he hit thirty homers. He stole twenty three bases. He walked more than he struck out. So i like the the numbers. He is not a big guy. What do we know about his physical skills and how they might translate from kipp iota. Mlb i guess where he could potentially be fit. Because we've talked a bunch about good shortstops available via free agency or the trade market and this is another one right so let me start with the caveat right which is that the gap between creon pitching and. Mlb pitching pretty sizable. That the good pitchers in and you can go to the leaderboard on fan graphs and see their names from pro ball over here in america who typically plateaued at double in aaa or were very very injured and had intermittent big time like row wall contra and so whether he can make that leap. We just won't totally know until we see it. But if we're looking at physical skills you can absolutely play shortstop plus plus arm plus runner. He's had a couple dozen steals and homers annually over the last couple of years. he has legit. like above average pull-power all field monster all power. But the bad super-quick. He'll he will turn on and yank out my estimation like eighteen. Twenty you maybe. Twenty two bombs a year over here. The bat does translate while playing a pretty good shortstop and making an impact on the bases. His numbers are better than if you're looking at the guys who got spit out went to keio and came back and played pretty well in mlb. I stretch like eric. Themes his numbers are are better from like a strikeout rate perspective. He is not as with prone in korea as themes and some of the other. Darren rough type guys. Who went over to korean and came back. So that's a good sign. I think for him and that key roster. I watched a lot of during the course of the summer. Because they had kim who was known at the beginning of the year wants to be posted they would eventually signed addison. Russell they have junk who lee. Who's like a twenty three year. Old outfielder who i think will eventually be a better big leaguer than kim. So they're they're officers pretty talented and i really like him a whole lot. And that as the youngest asian available and one of the few shortstops is a guy who could make an impact on both sides of the ball. That yeah i think craig ranked them correctly and craig. We've seen a few guys from your list get signed but mostly on one year deals you know smiley in borton robbie ray that type of player. At what point do you think we might start to see some serious movement with the guys toward the top of the list muto springer and bauer and others of that ilk or are you thinking that this is going to wait until the eve of opening day or or spring training. You know when maybe we know that there will be at spring training and when it will be in what the circumstances of the season will be like. Should we expect any real significant activity. You know before the end of the year or do you think this will probably stretch on. I mean. I think it'll probably take take a while. You know. i think that. After the top guys i it certainly seems like the starting pitching market will pick up you know but at the top of of the market. There's only one guy is trevor bauer. So it's hard to to gauge. Exactly what he is going to want or choose free agency. And then i think the rea- mutola springer it's possible we see something happened with them after the non tender deadline. But i think it's more likely that we see teams than players waiting until there's a little bit more certainty about what type of of revenue that that teams are be are going to be bringing in. You know that. Said if the mets decide you know they went to start making some moves. Then they're going to get the market moving and it's possible that happens. Of course they also don't have a general manager so you know i think that there's there's a few things that they're waiting on. You know just to add to the notes. On on kim hughes he was a very hard guide ranked because you noted his his projections would make him the top guy and free agency. Because the the years that you're getting from getting from springer enron Are in their thirties. They're likely as good as there are ever going to be a right now. Whereas kim there's some projection. Where if he's you know somewhere close to a a three and a half four when player now that he should maintain that throughout the rest of his twenties. But like eric said you know. There's there's some question marks about exactly how how hill he'll be able to play given given the level of competition so i just sort of sort of hedged my bets. I guess a little bit on where where to put him You know and and just moved him a little bit down the list behind a guys that have had more a track record but you know in terms of upside in terms of getting the most performance. He's probably the the the best bet would be a good fit for a high variance teams sort of trying to come out of a rebuilt our baby one year. Out of the rebuild. Something like that where you need things to go right to sort of stay in contention. Free agents aren't the only thing that we rank at fan graphs and so i guess we'll close by asking you eric. We're about to start on our prospect list process. And it's going to be an unusual one for you so i wonder if you could give our listeners. A preview of some of the challenges that you've had to think through and make decisions on as you embark on this season. Okay yeah so it's three or four. Fold in some respects is easier. I can just learned anything else about this guy. This year really couldn't so Not to do anything there but in other respects it is hard because a lot of times the way i look at players is if you can see the tip of the iceberg..
