"What the real world is, like, Go ahead and do it. But the problem is is when they get slapped in the face and let's just say in the travel ball world you face some kid throwing 73 11 you level and you know it is throwing the ball of the nasty hook and impression. Kids back inside. You gotta show him what that 73 is gonna look like. Right. That's how you prepare the child for the road. So that's been my philosophy. Um, I would say that, you know, sure. I imagine some other parents Um, educators or somebody else might argue with the way I've gone about doing it, but so maybe wrong again. Well, let me ask you this because my my oldest is this first season to play your pitch. Would have been last year. But obviously that didn't happen because well, pandemic on. I would like for him to learn that not every pitch is going to come from the machine or it's going to be grooved. It's not gonna be comfortable, so I'm I'm in agreement with your methods. Here's the problem. I can't hump it up there to 73 anymore. So can I bring my kid up to you? And then you can throw baseballs at him because I physically incapable of doing it and also It absolves me of any. Let's just say no Blood's on my hands so I could come back to my wife and say I didn't do it. Eric Burns did it. Talk to him. Yeah. Got gun, right? I could do that for you. But the problem is just when it comes to baseballs, and you know, throwing him to the DPD, kids everything. So we just got back from attorney in San Diego and we stay. Detroit lost his house. And it doesn't matter if you get this six set up for the cage and everything. And all throw tennis balls all day to the kids, right Like I mean, I'm talking. We call it TV, Cheddar cheese and again, you know, I think I've told you guys that story, but that's how I learned how to play the game of baseball. And then you know, the my neighbor would come over and he would throw the ball. He's the best picture of little baby 12 balls hard you can use like five years older than me. No chance, and eventually a certain tension up to it. So you know, I For whatever reason, I thought I'm like, You know what? It works for me? I'm I will try. My kids are doing it. Of course, much of swings and misses and Whatever else and then eventually search talents him off. And pretty soon you know, he was swearing him up now, every now and again, though, and and just even happened when he was, say five years old. We really started doing this. Of the ball's going to get away from me and it may or may not, You know, square him up in in the dome. So it's a tennis ball, though, so it's not that I don't think you know it's heavy enough to do any permanent damage out. You could do the tennis balls for an extended period of time. And still you know what I'm doing? I'm literally I've offered to throw tennis balls, too. Big leaguers, Brandon Belt and Jason Castor was actually the one I offered it to. Jason Castro, East Big Guy lives up by Ah Caetano and I told them belts in the in the same area and they're not obvious. These guys aren't aren't there full time. So I'm like, Yo, man during quarantine. I'm like I'm going out to throw to my kids. So if you want to get belt and whatever else that, like, let's do this, and I'm not kidding. When I say that it would. It would serve them well, like I would have no problem. Getting 46 ft. Away from him and throwing the ball is as hard as I can. And it basically simulating, you know, I mean, if you look at the actual times and everything, you know 90 MPH fast ball so that that that that all said, you know, with with With the part of balls. It could begin to get a little dangerous, and that's where I smoked my kid the other day, and I'm a little more hesitant to throw the hard balls when I'm throwing hard to other kids. Now, if it's my own kid day, that's right. The blood of the on my hands. But you know, I'm a again a little a little slow to to say yes with the hardball Cheddar cheese as opposed to the tennis ball. Cheddar cheese have to slip you 100. Then we can negotiate from there. Done a guy I got your odd e mean I can still I can still throw 90. I'm just 10 ft away. So you know you just you just keep moving. Closer simulation, right? Exactly. You know what? Something funny. I Look, I'm not. I'm just going to say this because it just happened. S o. Last. That was right when I smoke, my kid that was right before San Diego and he's nine and we're going out. We went played this year 11 you tournament in San Diego. And you know it. Yeah, he did. He did. He did find it all weekend, The voice battle the battle their tails off. This and that. I mean, it was. I can't believe that the games that we got into it was just like, almost like you can't. You can't make this stuff up like that, You know to two games in a row was You know, basically had to load the bases runaround. Serve winning run. You know, our pets player on the mound, you know, strikes the kid out all the drama in the world you could possibly think of every single one. The games we just played and what I told the boys I'm like, I'm like, Look, you know when you go through this stuff You know what this is doing? It's Harding. Them. It is it is. You know, the one kid Jackson climber, by the way, is there named the freaking studs from Fresno and Jax? Was on the mound. Two games in a row where we had to load the bases up, right runner on third, which is the winning run, and then bring the I'd like you to do the five infielders bring him in. Take the two outfielders basically pulled pulled them all the way in and you got eight guys staring at us a hitter like it's intimidating, and there was no other kids. That I would rather have on the mound and that I've ever coached. Then this kid Jack and and he went out there and absolutely ball of almost got out of it both times. Both times he was on the wrong end. Obviously, as a kid like this emotional to these kids, man, right, I get it. There's a lot going on. And you know, as you're developing, 12 year old and then you know, here we are. You know, Coach I put him into this situation. Because the one team was already got the third and so you walk into you put him in this really, really tough situation. What to come out of that, either. Which way? It doesn't matter, Man. Win or lose what we got. There was an experience that I just met with him for the rest of his life was like The more you go in there don't pressure packed sort of situations. And once again, the technology's going across all of life. But you, especially a baseball like that's how you get prepared to come up with the Chidi antic moments with 50,000 people in the stands of millions of watch on TV, new experience them. And so there's no. You know, it's a I've seen all sorts of kind of travel things. Now it's your teams and blow out other teams all the time. And, you know, it seems that get blown out all the time and what you want to do whatever you could do in anything. Try toe. Try to put your kid or ourselves even In competitive situations where those air the experiences that will stick with these kids. Wherever we go. We want tournaments without even like, you know, literally rolling there with a cup of coffee and a cigarette. You know, Like, like a case there is no water maker. Yeah, exactly. 21 Way. One of the Arizona like that. It And typically, it doesn't happen this way. But we did way had we had a freaking squad, but it was it was. It was easy. The boys think anything out of it. Nothing. And then yet we don't We go to something like this this weekend and, ironically We all four games were decided in the last game. One. The one that ended up in our favor that we won was against this team from Arizona. The Summerton met that ended up winning the entire tournament and we were the only team. To act out of 10 teams to beat the summer two Met in the top of that we beat their kids. They call him Loco. Who throws 73 MPH with a nasty hook. So what was the one team that we happen to get the victory against and then we had some battles with these other teams that we just came out on the wrong end? But again, I would rather take.

"jason castro" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac
"This is a guy that we lost Kirby Yates at the beginning of year. And that was a struggle the bullpen struggled along with that injury wage and he was a component that just added to it. It's a really good mix. They have drew pomerantz in front of him. They also have Emilio Pagan. They have some other options that are out of the bullpen has been probably right at because of the trading deadline. I think AJ preller and his staff went out there in fortified it I think Rosenthal is dead. The reason why you know Mark you were in baseball for such a long time and you stay in the game number one cuz you can play or you have a role in your role is to come off the bench and hit but bigger picture off you're a good guy and you fit into various teams good teams bad teams in different teams. And when you make a lot of Trades, sometimes that can work. Sometimes it can't and your team went for broke is it worked out to where those guys meshed with the guys that were already there? Yeah. I already told you about Rosenthal on the reason why that's worked cuz he's just, you know fit in he's a pro. I think he found it by being in st. Louis and quite frankly knowing that you had to go out there and and and just mesh take the ball when you have to and compete with everyone's going to say Mike Clevenger, even though that injury factors in front of it, but Mike Clevenger was one of those ads that everyone got excited about because they needed to fortify their their rotation. And but I'll tell you this Danny and this is the shock of the whole year. They went out and acquired two catchers Austin Nola and Jason Castro and you know how that that is very difficult to do get up to speed know what your pitching staff does especially with the extended rosters. You have so many pictures to worry about and Austin Nola has been the primary guy named Jason Castro who came over from the Angels is another guy. That's a backup. That's left-handed bat. But both of them are are Pros Pros they came in and did a fabulous job catching number one and then started offensively contributing as well. So that whole position got changed and changed for the better and that's kind of a shocking aspect because at the trading deadline, you don't expect them to revamp the whole catching staff and that's what they did and it's worked in terms of not having fans at the Ballpark. That's one thing but it looks like because the team has been from the outside looking end game. Haven't had a chance to see the east or West we're dealing with the central but it just looks like the city of San Diego has embraced this team. I mean the fans are just so excited about the Pod. Is that the right way to look at it? Yeah, and you know what? I think Saint Louis fans understand that they're they have that certain expectation, right and it should be because it's a it's a pure baseball town. It's been fourteen years Danny that the Padres have not been in the playoffs and it really hasn't been closed in years past. So these fans are crazed about it. I think they're looking for that month that reason to just get away from the everyday life at times and the Padres have done that they're excited. I go back to Fernando tatis jr..

"Is going to leg it out to second base is. Blackman plays the ball back in second double of the night for Jason Castro. You talked about it before? Kidding is contagious. When a bunch of guys were hitting. It just seems like everybody is doing it. And when you have a bunch of guys not hitting It's the same result and we're seeing between these two teams. The difference is an offensive confidence right now. So the home run in the double surrendered to start the seventh Seal 12 5 Padres lead and here's jerks and pro far switch hitter stays batting Left handed. One for three tonight with Castro its second pitch in for a strike. Has interesting Jack in that Dodger steer Siri's You got the feeling after that first game, you know, maybe The Iraqis would continue to scuffle in L A, but they were able to turn things around it. It paid off with a couple of wins. You could see the confidence grow through those final two games. Balls and a strike to pro far A pitch from Santos in the dirt one and one. Then you get the kind of performance that day Nelson lament turned in last night, and it can make you start to search again as the hitter and we've seen Maura that Rocky's have seven hits tonight, but So far, swings and lines it over shortstop up the middle, and that's going to go all the way to the wall in left center.

"Why not? The aforementioned Jason Castro's only at three percent Christian. Vasquez is at thirty four percent is in Vasquez, doing what, what we can reasonably expect out of out of Posey to eighty seven seven and twenty two homers and runs. He's just like Posey. Worries matching his runs in homers, except his are better. I mean now in fairness, people have moved on from Posey's at sixty six percent in in those rows ball leagues. And let me see where he is in. Any SPN leaks them pulled up seventy two. So, you know people are moving away. But that's still both of those are still too high. I think it's got to be sub sixty right now. I'd rather have Vasquez. I'd rather have Narvaez he's not as widely available. So that one's a little bit more of a pipe dream. I think I'd rather ride out the McCann hotness. I'll tell you what, here's one Jonathan Lukoil sitting seventeenth. He's got he's got a seven twenty six percent roster rate. Let me see what he's been up to lately, because I remember he was killing it for a while. And I was like, oh now you decide to turn it on. I carried your carcass for years. Okay. He's coming back to earth, quite a bit. He's got a to thirty two average. He was he was totally good average for a minute. As recently as may eighth. He was help as recently as may twenty fourth. He was at two seventy three. So that's his high watermark over the last over the last few weeks. But since then it's got all my God. Absolutely dreadful one eighteen cents. Then that's really because I was gonna say I was surprised to see who that low. He had to have been in a colossal slump, and he is so okay, maybe you hold Posey over him. But there's other guys out there. I just don't think you need to blindly hold Posey because of the name value. That's all I'm saying. And for the record he is twenty third on the play Rainer here..

It's nice three-game series with the two American League leaders we knew there would be plenty of souvenirs of home runs. Evident Carnasciali would deliver the first ball into the stance. And I between the Mariners and the twins. And it was a gem. There is a top of the third goodbye. Baseball three Ron shot. The Mariners were on the board. First twins would answer in the fourth, they cut to lead the one just a two run Homer by Jonathan shoop. And then get this next. Batter up. Jason Castro says goodbye baseball to that.

The two one swinging tap fouls since that all star year in two thousand thirteen the bad has not been very productive for Jason Castro was kind of funny, that JD Martinez looked at his swing. He made in Houston said, okay. You've made some changes. I wanna know what changes you made. JD goes in this direction, which is up in Jayson Castro went in the other way, and the, the twin signed him, knowing that he, he was a defense. I catch, right?

"And you could say that about a number of their pitchers and part of their bullpen, and so on the so that's all really good the things that are kind of like mind blowing are the catchers, they're catchers. So one thing is that they're catchers, have I mentioned, I tweeted this the other day. But no team other than other than the brewers in right field. No team in baseball had gotten more home runs out of any position than the twins catchers. And it's you know, it's Jason Castro and Mitch Garber Williams asked to do so like that. That was not supposed to happen at all. And it probably won't continue to maybe it will Castro in and Garber really have been just hitting the ball super super super hard realistically, and then you've got catchers of a one sixty three plus has a group right now. Yeah. That's like a Mike Piazza season. So yeah, and then you've got Longo is might be the favourite for the AOL MVP right now in as much as there is one at the end of may. He's more or less tied with trout for the lead. The league lead in war and plunk owes young and has been good in the past and didn't come out of nowhere by any means. But, you know, come on, that this is not it, this is not what you expected. Maybe this is real in the same way that other players have gotten extremely good as their careers developed. But this was totally unexpected. And if you were planning this season, this would not have been what you would have expected to carry the twins. Martine Peres, of course is. And, and then they're closer is wildly wildly wildly outperforming his fifth, which is if you're going to outperform, your fifth, it'd be great to have your closer to it that, that works really well for like lever situations. But maybe a thing that you're not sure can keep up. But then otherwise, you know, odor easies gonna gonna regress but, like everything else, kind of looks like okay like oh, yeah. This is this is the good Jonathan scope. We didn't know if they get the good, one of the bad one, they got the good one. This is the good, max Kepler. We didn't know and they got the good one, and there's a lot here that kind of makes sense it's sort of hard to figure out, what has changed besides everybody playing a lot better. So if you start thinking about well, what makes the twins different than everybody else other than scoring more runs? One thing is that they have the highest fly ball rate in baseball as hitters. But then if you look at the teams just behind them they're all bad teams. So. That's part of why this is working. But that's no promise of it working. They have the they have the highest swing rate at pitches inside the strike zone, but they're sort of more average on pitches outside the strike zone, which is perfect like that seems real seems like a real indication of success like being aggressive at strikes and having some control of the strike zone at pitches, that aren't is a really good model for scoring runs. They're throwing a lot more strikes this year as pitchers like a ton more than they did last year..

"They also would have the option of flipping him in the trademark it kinda like doing what the Yankees did with the role chaplain. Exactly where you flip them in the trademark, and you get a couple of prospects. And then you go after her main free agency I was looking at this yesterday. If you compare the first seven starts of is in two thousand fifteen when that was the aerobically prime Bumgarner, they're almost identical to what he's done in. His first seven starts this year. Forty three thirds innings his ex pip almost identical three point five ninety two thousand fifteen three point six three and two thousand nineteen. I think he's got a lot of mileage left in that tank Karl, no doubt, no doubt. And I think, you know, look your premise of being in a different city in on a team that scoring runs where there is a little fire. I mean that wheelhouse. I'm not denying that or suggesting. Yeah, he wouldn't be able to thrive in that. The the dude is as big a competitor is I've seriously as I think we can say we've covered over the course of our careers when it comes to big games postseason head down. What's my job? I'm going to go. Do it. And if I have to slay a dragon, I'm going to slay a dragon. You know, you can you can throw me right into game of thrones. Like we did four and he's not guy. There's not a lot not a lot of complaining. So yeah, I get the idea of different environment heat, and he would bring a ton of electricity. But again, he he is so symbolic and Representative of that that city like could you see Bruce bocce managing somewhere else or or has is he a giant, and we're kind of done here. Yeah. Buster Posey's same way. Right. I it would it would hurt him a little bit. It'd be it'd be like seeing Cal ripkin move to another team during his Backley. And so I yeah. And it might be as they say that they just flipped them in trade. And then bring it back in about Bumgarner and sign him after the season. Alright. A few more quick ones before you go. I felt like that the series the twins had against the Astros. That was a statement series to me Mark are tweeted at us will you please check. My math the twins. Magic number is one hundred and thirty one I didn't take the time to do that Karl, but I will buy into the idea that this week felt like an important series for that team. Well, isn't it funny? That all you know, I wouldn't say all of a sudden, but we've kind of been in love with Jose burritos we were with in Puerto Rico. We we kind of knew what he was capable of. And we see it come through against the Houston Astros Jonathan scope and Jason Castro both are kind of cast off from their organizations and now and now are contributing in a big way. And here we are having this conversation about a team who was picked to be competitive. But. Certainly not get off to the start. They've gotten off to taking free or four from the Astros on their way to New York with another manager who has very little if any experience as a manager..

"Here are your host Austin Hartsfield, and Dave quit cow scheme. Start with a catching situation. You have probably the best defensive catcher in baseball. You fi- Joe Mauer is gone for now. Forever L as I don't know. Why said lucky died or something? But Joe Bauer had he's gonna be in the organization. So he's kind of you know, numbers numbers hang forever of intially. But Jason Castro has been this team scheduled for a while coming up the Tournus. So what is what is the situation? Looking like you said it's as defense first and foremost than and I mean when Derek fell the Thad LeVine came in to take over the organization after Terry Ryan was let go there I signing. It was an early signing. Maybe even by thanksgiving was Jason Castro a couple years ago, a three year twenty four million dollar deal with that. It was all about his metrics is pitched framing the stories of his leadership and things like that. A pretty good first year with the twins both defensively. He actually put up numbers that were as best offensive numbers in like four years. So I mean, he he's got the ability to be a pretty solid player. I mean to me it's all about the defense. What you get with with the bat from him as just a bonus. And you know, he missed pretty much all of last year. He only played eighteen nineteen games. And as much as the numbers may not show it in terms of offense, or whatever I think his absence really affected the pitching staff to some degree. But again, we'll find out more this year should be healthy behind him. We're talking about Mitch Garber guy the tag concussion problems. What what is it look like with garbage Garba going to be a catcher this year? Are they gonna try to move around or is the health issues? Just no problem at this point because he has healthy right now, he is healthy right now he was able to return last year in September from the concussion and get some at bats. He's had a full healthy off-season. So as of right now as we head into pitchers and catchers reporting later this week, he's healthy. He's ready to go. And if Seoul he's he's going to be the backup and probably play quite a bit. Because with him. You do get the offense. You do have a guy that hits for can't hit for average. Does take good bats. And does have some power. And I think he does have the versatility play a little bit of first base. He played, you know, a few hands full of our handfuls, you guys left to tell me. What is correct but in left field the year before, but you know, really, he's he's a catcher slash DAT slash third-string. First basement. So, you know, he's he's pretty solid. But I know the twins fan base is most excited about lotto or to Williams asked to deal who, you know, came up last year a couple of times he played all over the diamond including left field center field third. Base second base. And then a little bit of catching at the end. His inability to take a walk or strikeout is really pretty amazing and he hit three fifty five with some power in a short small sample into last year. So twins fans. Love him. He does have versatility could be an opening day guy. Probably more of a guy. That's their third catcher who will be in Rochester as and be able to call up as needed one of my favorite articles, actually that I've read in a very long time was actually on twins daily, obviously inside the Iran. Nick, Nelson had an article called is Mitch Garber style. Koetter I didn't realize all the hell that he'd been through behind the play..

"Here's the season ending injury. Didn't he did he rip ACL or something? Let me look. Yes. Surgery to pair torn meniscus in right knee. So that's not ACL. But that's a severe injury that. That's basically a lost season for Jason Castro last year. But they're bringing him back. He will be the starter. That one should probably be a little bit of a fifty five forty five though as well. Right. Because of what Garver was able to do I don't know Garvers profile behind the dish. If anyone knows that off hand, and they could tweet me at spore to let me know if he's somebody's the bat. I guy can he handle his own back there because I know Castro has a good reputation behind the dish is so then I'll keep him into into some playing time. Garver could also snake some time at first base though and sap some of CJ Krones playing time although cronies coming off a great season. So unless he flops. It won't be too much. But anyway. I think Castro. Super deeply, right? All these guys. I don't think I need the caveat that we're talking deep league here except for maybe one of the remaining guys a little bit of a shallow or league consideration. But they're all deeply, okay, but Castro, you know, he's been a solid like ninety ninety three WRC plus the last two seasons that he played. He was dreadful last year in his small sample before the injury. Double digit Homer guy. Eighteen fourteen eleven eleven ten the batting. Average can be pretty brutal though, it's been in those in those double digit homers seasons. It was two seventy six that was the all-star season with the Astros. But then to twenty two to eleven to ten and then pop back up to two forty two in two thousand seventeen. So yeah, I I would prefer Garver as well. Even as a backup. I prefer him to Castro. Okay. The next duo here. You know, I was ready. I was ready to dive back in on one of my favorite picks from last year, Austin, barns. But the trade of of Russell Martin curbs that so Martin is going for eighty three Barnes is going way ahead at three fifty five. Neither is particularly appealing to the fantasy community right now. Barnes flopped, though.

"Condolences to mariners fans who didn't need more bad news they were already long shots mean they've had a good record thus fire but of played pretty much like a five hundred team and kinda needed everything to go right to hang in the races and i know they're barely out of both races right now but losing canot makes it difficult for them to stay in this is still possible but it was unlikely before it's more unlikely now and if they did somehow manage to make the playoffs connote would not be able to play so not that the mariners needed any more bad news or things going against them after the decades long streak of not making the playoffs but they have one more thing stacked against them sorry mariner spins gordon becca metaphor twelve obt and aaa so maybe this is the year thirty one years old respect us to bring them all in sure all right let's move on his brett lawrie still in baseball bull we could talk i've wondered about that actually yeah okay so i have something that's kind of exciting it's also got a bad side to it but i think it's exciting i think you'll be excited maybe thought about this maybe you haven't jayson castro has undergone niece urge that's bad that's bad for jason castro's bet to the twins supposed to be afforded sixweek procedure but this morning it is a season ender he hadn't been meniscus damage jason castro's gone so the twins starting catcher now will be mitch garber twins back now we'll be bobby wilson hanging out and aaa williams s to do and yes there now as i presume the third string catcher with the twins the only guy standing in his way for majorly job bobby wilson.

"Too low thirties you know think that's what he was being drafted as he's now four for forty eight inning oh eighty three with that first homer is back to old punishable face logan morrison or or is he going to is he going to have a run i mean i think he's going to have a run he's not gonna hit under one hundred and what about the power i think i i think power is going to be there i think i just i think the average is going to be just atrocious and we're talking about like maybe worse than this last two years maybe more like to twenty six so chris carter up hand chris carter he i mean he's he's swinging outside his own more swing strike rates up it's not going to be a pretty profile but i think he's a guy who will still hit another twenty five home runs and in probably more as long as the twins don't start sitting them the question becomes how long will the twins put up with us they've got other they've got other you know black holes offensively included you know specially byron buxton right now in that lineup can they afford to keep running out there so i think the power's gonna come back is this guy bilo on no i don't i don't think i would it's it's interesting you say that about bucks because with him out they can almost afford it more because then everyone but jason castro and logan morrison is is average or well well above even ryan lemaire the replacement right now for byron buxton's hitting out of his shoes so if you look up and down the lineup on on baseball reference of the regulars you just see castro in lome but at buxton there then you got three dead weights and you're right.
