"You know, I mean, I like Kodak. I mean, a codex a really impressive rapper. Well, I also think there's a weird thing his sort of taken hold in the past couple of years of looking through credits. And I feel like it happened with Drake's element, it's happened a few times where someone would find like an R. Kelly credit or a insert problematic musician. And I feel like it's a very weird and odd thing to kind of normalize. And I feel like Kodak by clearly has a career. He clearly has an audience and it's not going to be, I don't know, just inhibit in and of itself being on the record doesn't seem like a grievous thing. And it also kind of like the sensibility I got was like being in the church pews and like the bad kid is like on the pulpit like doing a performance and you know all the stuff they did but like now they're a church. It didn't feel like it was like promoting Kodak black and it's probably things he's done specifically because the record makes a point to talk about treating black women better. He says this stuff repeatedly is drilling this foam and he's got this guy who just last year pleaded to a crazy case. And I don't know if maybe that's just kind of like a performance of imperfection or whatever like a delivery artistic decision to be like while I want to push this message I also have to consider people who are not all the way along in their journey on this. I mean, he does have the Jesus crown on. Yes. It's ironic, but also is it? He's leading by example. It's like the, it's like the Julius Caesar refusing the crowd kind of thing. Everybody knows what you mean to people and regardless of what title you want to put on it. It's always going to be what it is. I think that he's trying to redirect something that there's no control over people who are always going to look up to him. Even in this prickly and I would say often confrontational record, it's being lifted up by a lot of people, it's just one of the greatest things that's happened this year. So really what damage was done to that people look up to him and hang on every word, sort of situation, you know? We're talking about Jesus, which brings me to the last topic. That I really want to talk about. Did not make an appearance on this album, so that's how you know it was in a classic. Okay. The ones that he appears on are the classics and the Jesus was too busy on the NF record to show up in the Kendrick record. Okay, okay. So here's the question that I have for each of you. No, because some of this stuff could be lecrae, like a couple of times. Yes. Absolutely. 100%. Like you told me that there was like maverick city music like studio musicians, like in the background, I would not be surprised also. You know? It may take some respect on kids cave. He's a better rapper than a crank. No, listen, lecrae is a talented individual who puts a lot of effort into those records. It is just that there is sometimes when the subject, like that, I'm not going to push it, it's a half dog. Then it's okay. I believe that we all can believe in all acknowledge that we can not the didacticism of some of this stuff and just not at it. And then keep walking by. And we're going to compare the principal. He's going to hold the cradle so. Yes. Totally fair. But is he going to hold Kanye? Now, this is the question I have. And I'm hoping we'll all have different answers to it, but we'll see. Where in the Kanye arc is Kendrick right now? Wow. I feel like he's further along than Kanye's. Like, you think you've post donned a two? Yes. This is a better DOM to two. This is the fatherhood fears and trying to throw the audience record, which is what yeezus wants for Kanye. Okay, so you're saying postdoc to two Jeff, you're saying yeezus, Craig. What do you think? The verses are finished. Their songs on this one, they're inspired songs on this one. I kind of don't agree with the question. I feel like they should be like, where is he at in the Drake arc? Oh. I feel like his beef with Drake honestly messes up. If Kendrick and Drake would have stayed cool. No. No. What universe or Kendrick and Drake? What are they arguing? No, I know but literally what contender could just. This is the thing. Kanye and Drake have things to argue about Kendrick and Kanye have things to argue about. I struggle to know what Kendrick and Drake truly have done. And it was like this subtle thing that I'm sure they're probably Friends. You have professional frost with people who are good at what they do and also so were you and you just don't like each other. I have a lot. There's a lot of people like that. That's normal. Yeah. But is it real? But like, I don't know, man, these are adults. Like, I'm an adult, like I let that go ten, 15 years ago. Everybody has that one person, they just simply would never talk to in their industry, and that's just what that is. Also, like, just everyone wants to claim the greatest and there can't be two at the same time. The catalysts don't match up though like Drake is like a micro inside my head record kind of guy and Kendrick is everything outside of my brain. Yeah. And even on the therapy record, even we could go through the catalog like, okay, Kendrick do have some joints, like he has radio hits. It's on this record counts contrary to the critical thrust saying otherwise this stuff that wants to be seen among the other rappers that are out right now, I think. Okay, can I propose something? What if this is 8 O 8s? Damn is graduation. The kind of like big ambitious, like I'm here, I'm present. I can make records of this scale that are going to cross over and touch everybody. And this is what happens when your life falls apart and you realize that when you thought you were at the top, you actually have collapsed fully, and there's nothing underneath you, except the mountain that you climb, that got kicked out from under you. To me, that's how this scans, and then that makes me want to do this. Is he really had a cataclysmic thing? Well, based on the snippets of information. You know, it's like, he got found out, we don't know the extent of it. We don't know the cost. We don't know. Also, there's like a heel loots to sex addiction kind of. And I thought that was important. Yeah. Well, the paper record. Mostly talked about texting in my feel like. First of all, it's the podcast of record and the rules are different. But that makes me wonder, is there on the back end of this a fantasy, like a kind of like fully formed like, okay, I shook off this whatever, now I'm gonna come back with a fully orchestrated Magnum Opus that, yes, I put together this kind of piecemeal half emotional record with some strange and potentially unacceptable bars, but I'm gonna come back with like the full LA symphony orchestra Pink Floyd the wall massive record after this. I go back and forth between not knowing what to expect and feeling like this was really settling a lot of things that the next one is going to go on a crazy direction. But that could be just the stuff that you tell yourself when somebody has made the record that isn't necessarily the one that you want. Yeah. Hit the highs, then I needed it to as often as I've expected to from that artist. And maybe feeling like, oh, he's going to go crazy the next time is copium, maybe he really is trying to push things around and change up the art. Can I ask just like a meta criticism question? Because it's something that was really on my mind as I was writing the review. Because we'll do critic picks sometimes for really impressive records. And I was like, I don't think I'm going to give this a critics big, but I was like, I'm so used to and Steven, your review is the first pitcher to review of a Kendrick record since section 80. That was not best new music. I was sort of wondering like, am I going to be out on a limb here being like, this is an imperfect Kendrick record. But it turns out that everybody felt that way, or almost everybody seemed to feel that way. Was it, was it at all strange to watch that happen in kind of real time? Because I feel like critical discourse sometimes can be blunted and dull, especially about stars of a certain caliber with a certain expectation. And I was like wondering kind of like looking at other people's papers a little bit like, okay, is anybody going to also say this? Or am I going to be floating down here alone? And then it turned out we all kind of could have just, you know, more or less filed one review because we all mostly thought similar things. I mean, I don't have any heroes. That's right. That's right. I'd say it louder. Say it with your chest. Say it with your chest. I listened to the music that I respond to the music. You know, I did have high expectations, but they expectations didn't make the music. I wasn't in the studio. This is just like be hoping it's good. If it's mid, it's mid, you know? Yeah, like I didn't come in thinking I wanted anything, but I was like, yo, what if we could hear Kendrick talk about XYZ? And he wanted to talk about fast and angry tweets. Sometimes, you know, you have to go through that stuff. And there's a lot of people who are in their hard headed area who were in there on rejecting the thing that everybody wants me to do era and we're getting a lot of head ass records because people are pushing back at. They're the public perception of themselves in ways that shouldn't matter to them. I get it, but come on. It's been 5 years now. Let's get past this. It's not just happening inside the confines of the Kentucky record and I feel like that we're talking about cancel culture and all that stuff and like deliberate transgression stuff inside the Kendrick record and music, this area is so tainted with that mindset that it's even got into like that. I don't know where do people stop worrying about whoever is not trying to hear what they say. In pitch the whole record pitched the whole show pitched the whole special, whatever the thing that you're making is to the people who want to hear it, you know? It does make me wonder that energy that, oh, they're not ready for this conversation or I try to have this conversation and they don't want it. Is that kind of like a proxy discourse for, hey, I tried something and for the first time, it's kind of not hitting. So it couldn't possibly be not hitting because it's bad or because it's unappealing. It must be not hitting because of what I'm talking about, and because they don't want me to talk about it. Sometimes when you hear Kendrick or like Dave Chappelle or whatever, like griping about someone like this, like sometimes I'm just like maybe the material's not hitting. It doesn't have to do with these other kind of like big picture thematic cancel ideas. Maybe it's isolating in their branches in their mansions in their beaches and listening to the people who are telling them they agree with them and yeah, they're just everyone is everyone's head is just so far up their own they're like, it's really exquisite to watch every single person go through this. Every famous rapper from a surgeon. It's Elon Musk telling people he's going to vote Republican now. It's just like it's everywhere and it's like annoying and like I'm very tired of just that whole thread. You can't even call it a thread. It's the whole rope to what you're talking about, John, with a lot of the records that have come out at least in the past two years. I think we're really getting a sense of who these people are in the context of not having a world around them to just adore them or whatever. So we were all listening to celebrities in the pandemic, where it's like, you know what? Why can't I say what I want? Why can't I say it? It's like these guys are actually just like rich jerks. But wait, wait, wait, wait, but there's been some slappers that have come out during the pandemic from the same rich jerk slappers, rich jerks. No, that's my new Spotify. If I catch my constantly updated Spotify playlist. This whole Kendrick record was like, how funny would it be if he just got yeet on one track? The raft that has blown up most recently, I feel like is so much closer to where people are. And I think you're hearing a lot of these kind of former stars of the genre start to feel a bit threatened. It's like, does Kendrick have a lot? At this point. But here's the thing, that is true and that's been, I'd say that's been happening since 2010, but the Earl sweatshirt album also very insular, but really interesting, from really this year's sick. That's also in a very heady space in this space of the Vince record. It's possible to be inside your head and also make records, like people are doing it. Oh, for sure. I think those are two good examples of people who aren't going to be Drake or Kanye. Right, but also vintage someone, Vince is someone who also has a less imposed upon moral presentation than Kendra. He's Vince has more latitude. I always feel to navigate. Then Kendrick seems to have. Oh, yeah, sure. But he came ready to wrap though. I feel like I at least respect that. Well, guys, again, it's a joy to talk Kendrick with three people who will never lose touch. Steven, Jeff Craig. Steven are they cussing you for the pitchfork review? Yeah, I have my mucin filters very established. I caught three days of smoke for pimple butterfly. So like, just know that it'll always happen, it's not necessarily just about you. They hate whoever is in the seat. I appreciate that. I mean, can confirm. That's our show.

"And they hypothesis? It proved true. Yes, they found that there was a difference in a few hundred locations around the genome that made identical twins different from fraternal twins and from singletons. So something on top of the genes was acting as a memory of splitting. As if they were sort of a signature in the epigenetics of identical twins. Yes. Yes, and they in their own study. They actually had the idea. Oh, could we do a signature test of identical twins? And they showed through some clever mathematics that within their sample that you could roughly estimate where someone was identical or fraternal or not. We still don't know if this epigenetic signature of identical twins is a cause or a consequence of the exploiting event. But these are the questions that researchers are now beginning to ask. And this test they've created, it wouldn't just apply to twins. Because it's possible that anyone could have been an identical twin at some point in their development. We think that up to 9 tenths of twin pregnancies in 9 out of ten cases, one of the twins disappears in early development. This is so called vanishing twin syndrome. Yes, it's called vanishing twin syndrome. And it's difficult to actually put a figure, but the best estimate at the moment is this happens in 9 out of ten twin pregnancies identical to improves, which means for every twin Bond, there's another 9 singletons out there that never knew they were a twin. So people like me who used to have dreams that there was another me in the bed line beside him when I was in childhood I used to have this recurring dream. I could test yeah, I could test this idea that maybe it was all just weird dreams or maybe I had a distant memory that I shared the room with a twin. So if I took such a test and if it was proven to work, then I could test that my own hypothesis that I was after conception, I was part of an identical twin. And I think it would be academically interesting to just know how many vanished co twins there are out there. While Jeff Craig says that tests like this one which involve multiple genes are never a 100% accurate. He thinks that a test of decent quality could be available to the public within 5 to ten years. And it's not just personal or academic interest at stake here. It could be some medical implications, too. We know that some developmental disorders such as cerebral palsy. Higher risk of cerebral palsy if you're a twin. So in the future, if there's a reliable test for identical twinning, it could be something that's done at birth to tell whether you're at higher risk for a condition like cell palsy. And finally, doctor Craig knew this question of the splitting that's at the core of what makes and creates identical twins. Do you think there will be more research into this area? Is there at least a current of interest that will mean it's something that researchers continue to look at? Yes, I've been part of discussions on this, and it is the researchers ask scratching their heads and they're taking input from different researchers and so what should we do next? What's our next plan? And so definitely there's definitely a momentum now. And as it's been published, there will be other twin researchers around the world with their own ideas. I guess everyone like everyone likes a good mystery. It's great to have a long-standing mystery slowly unraveled. All right, ready, got your broadcast voice on. No, but I'm gonna try. All right. So nervous. Our thanks go to Jeff Craig, Professor of epigenetics and cell biology at deakin university school of medicine. Jif's also the deputy director of twins research Australia. You can follow him on Twitter at doctor chromo. Jeff and twins research Australia are always looking for twins interested in joining upcoming twin studies. You can find out more at twins dot org.

"Prove that. I'm Elizabeth coalesce and I am an identical twin. I'm also a mirror twin. And that's what we're talking about today on science fiction with Jeff Craig, he's a Professor of epigenetics that they can university and he's a twin researcher. And Jeff tells me that the rate of identical twinning sits at around one in 250 births. And it's more or less consistent around the world. For fraternal twins, that rate varies widely. From one in 200 births right up to one in every 20 births in some parts of the world. And in recent years, researchers have learned a huge amount about the biological origins of fraternal twins. This has been, I think some of the more exciting research that's come through about 5 years ago. There was some research came from genetic studies comparing families with higher proportions of fraternal twins. And what came out of that are genes associated with fertility? And fertility hormones. So what it comes down to is that some women are more likely to produce two eggs at the same time. Instead of one egg every month, not all the time, but more than average. And there's a number of factors that can influence this and some even think that diet in some African countries like, you know, it's been proposed that high diet in yams in South African countries may be an environmental component that may increase fertility and ovulating two eggs. And so there's been some evidence to back that up that yes fraternal twins often run in families for that reason. But whether identical twinning is a heritable trait. That's proving a much harder question to answer. Though it's not stopping some from trying. Well, we first off, I think we know that it is very rare to find clusters of identical twins and by clusters, I mean extended families with at least say three to four pairs of identical tunes in the family, but really it is rare. And the genetics that we talking about probably is not something that occurs very commonly. And Jeff, I hear that there is a twin hunter. Now, he's interested in whether there are unique families around the world where this is happening. What does he get up to? Yes, the researcher's name is Bruno riverside. He's a developmental biologist. He tries to understand what happens very early on when we develop. He looks at animal studies and he also looks for remote communities, which have a much higher incidence of identical twins. Which would imply that that particular community have some genes that code for something that affects early development and causes splitting. And so he's still on that long quest and I think he's found two remote communities. Well, he does this goes in. I guess permission to collect cheeks swabs, and then reads sequences to genome and looks very carefully to see what the differences are between these communities and everyone else. And he's got clues so far but it really hasn't come out and said, yes, I found I found the gene. There's never ever one gene for anything, but I found a gene that contributes to twinning. So it's ongoing research, but I think I love the idea of having the license licensed for sure the world looking for remote communities. I've always wanted an excuse to do that. Professional twin hunter. Yeah, I like it. Yeah. He's always on the lookout. He said, you know, that criteria of at least three or four pairs of identical twins he said you'll fly out and take 6 swabs if he finds more families like that. So far, I haven't found any two twins research Australia. But you never know there may be out there. Another statement that I'd heard all my life as an identical twin was that my sister and I were a complete DNA match. So I asked Jeff about this and he tells me that our understanding of that too has changed in recent years. Research into genetic difference in twins has been we're being drip fed that the last ten years in the genetic era. But only when we've been able to sequence all 3 billion base pairs of our genetics as the result being coming through. And a big study last year found that the average identical twin pair, it's actually different in about probably 15 locations in the genome. That's out of 3 billion, you say? Yeah, out of 3 billion. It's not a lot. And that can be anywhere between zero differences and a few hundred differences. Now the big question is where those are much of our genome is either Joan Carr antiques depending on your academic point of view. There's very little that actually codes for anything. However, it would be great for such a study to focus on identical twins and say, well, where are these 15 genetic differences? Are there any examples where researchers had found that it did code for something and led researchers in an interesting direction? Yeah, I think in that case, there was a single genetic change that was in a coding region, important region of the gene, and it was in a gene that was known to cause epilepsy in singleton. So yes, in this case, a one genetic mistake in a known epilepsy gene was shown to cause epilepsy in one twin of a pair. But despite all these recent discoveries, there remains a core mystery at the center of twin research that continues to confound science. It's probably the most fundamental question when it comes to identical twins. Just how and why? Does a fertilized egg split into? I find the very idea of the splitting process to be quite miraculous. Yes, and it is the only it's so miraculous that the only other mammal to have identical twins is the 9 banded armadillo. They actually have identical quads and octuplets. Nobody knows why we have this affiliation with armadillo with ambiguities, but it is actually quite rare in the mammalian world. But no one's ever seen a human twin split. But then late last year, a team in the Netherlands made an incredible discovery about identical twins. It had been a desert of research for many years, and just any clue to the formation of high technical twins was breakthrough. It was an international study. Didn't look at genetics, but they looked at epigenetics, basically these other dimmer switches that act on top of the genes to turn them off and on or up and down. And they compared epigenetics from about 3000 twins, some of which were identical others fraternal and they also included some singleton in there. So they were saying, what is this molecular event that makes identical twins special? The researchers hypothesized that the splitting event, which leads to identical twins. It could be embedded in the body's cellular memory. Every time a cell divides, the splitting would be remembered. So to speak. Not in the DNA sequence itself, but is a series of epigenetic chemical markers along the genome..

"Unique. We were 6 when we first attended an in person clinic for the twin study. We traveled to a grand old medical building on the fringes of Melbourne's CBD. I remember huge staircase and the polished floors, and being told that we were going to have a cheek swab taken. Oh, yes, I remember being very scared that the cheeks what was gonna hurt and then the anti climax when it was a cheeks woven. It was totally fine. It was like vaguely uncomfortable for a millisecond. Jen and I were part of a study being run by the university of Adelaide, looking at the jeans, teeth, and faces of Australian twins. The shake swap was taken for a zygosity test to confirm whether we were fraternal or identical. For total twins, the result of two eggs being fertilized by two separate sperm. For tonal twins share about the same amount of DNA a single born siblings, or singletons, as they're known in the twin research world. Identical tweens are the result of a single fertilized egg, but splits to create two embryos, so their genetic profile is a much closer match. Jen and I were never dressed the same, and we were always placed in separate classes at school, but beside our closest family and friends, just about everyone else struggled to tell us apart. And a few months after that cheek swap around the time we turned 7. The results came here. Despite what our mother had been told when we were born. Jen and I were identical. As a gossip story, turns out it's actually quite a common one among tweens. It's something researcher Jeff Craig first encountered about ten years ago at a twins festival in Melbourne. Yes, you heard me. That's absolutely a thing. And at this festival, Japanese team were offering free zygosity tests. We put an advertisement just one week before the festival on the twins research Australia website. We think, oh, and that got a handful. And we opened the doors after we set up a culture race course. And there was like a tsunami of parents and they're pushes just queuing up a big air to find out the truth. Jeff Craig is a Professor of epigenetics and cell biology at deakin university school of medicine. He's also the deputy director of twins research Australia. And Jeff was surprised at what they discovered next. Up to one third of those twins were either misinformed or just simply didn't know about their own identity whether identical African. So that's quite a lot. So not alone in being late to find that out. Yes, there's many many twins. I think our oldest twins who found out were in their 80s. Oh wow. And so we realized that there were myths going around such as if twins each had their own placenta, there must be fraternal, and we now know that it's not necessarily that way. One third of identical twins also have their own placenta. The remaining two thirds share a placenta. And I guess one of the other myths was that identical twins must be identical in every way. Including personalities teeth, et cetera, and that's not the case identical twins can be physically and behaviorally different as well. I think those were the main two myths. The study of twins has a long and at times checkered history. So Francis galton a distant cousin of Darwin was among the first to recognize the research potential of twins. A prominent figure of Victorian science, his work in the late 19th century used twins to explore the influences of heredity and environment, paving the way for the debate over nature and nurture. Into the genetic era, researchers continued to work with twins. As a kind of naturally occurring experiment. The first kind of research was asking whether a condition was more influenced by genes or environment. And even though now, we know it's always genes and environment. The knowledge genetics and knowledge of environment has been important. For example, it was suspected that smoking increased the risk of bone fracture. Researchers knew there were many things that could influence the risk of bone fracture. So in an earlier Australian twin study, they started recruiting identical twin pairs, where over a period of years, one of the twins smoked, and the other didn't. And so that particular type of model same genetics for definite environment was very informative in this case. It said there was a causative link between smoking and bone density and therefore they could conclude that smoking lower bone density is more likely to lead to osteoporosis and fractures. Because they took that genetic component away and looked only at that environment. Even before Jen and I had received our zygosity test result. We'd been contributing to our twin study in another way. By collecting our baby teeth, we were each given a small jar, clear plastic with a yellow lead, the kind used to take pathology samples. And inside was a little slip of paper, showing two neat semicircles of teeth, sketched in a line drawing. And do you remember collecting our teeth for this study? I do remember evening the taste and now I look back on it because you keep your teeth for the tooth fairy anyway. I think I just thought that this strange little container with the yellow lid was was just an extension. It was like a little tooth vault. Any time either of us lost a tooth, we were asked to store it in a little tooth Volt, and to write the date that it had fallen out next to the corresponding tooth on the diagram. By the way, we asked the two theory to please respect science and leave the coins, but also leave the teeth. We did this over a series of years, collecting, dating, storing teeth away. And soon, a pattern emerged. Not long before finding out, I can remember, you know, losing yet another baby tooth. And us losing those teeth within a day of each other. And they're happening on opposite sides of our mouth. There was these kind of breadcrumbs that we are linked in some quite extraordinary way. And this kept happening. Our teeth following the same eerie pattern over and again. Jen would lose a tooth on the right side of her mouth, and somewhere between a day and two weeks later, I would lose the same tooth, but on the left side of my mouth. And as we started learning to write in developing our fine motor skills, other signals became clear. Jen was predominantly left handed, where I almost always worked on the right. And somewhere in those data collecting years, we would hold this likely had meaning. Jen and I were mirror twins. When we look in the mirror and a single tip, well, we, when I look at the mirror, we see ourselves. We can identify that's my left side. That's the mirror of it. Well, with twins, it's like the mirror is not there in twins are looking at each other. And there's a lot of physical features such as birthmarks and hair walls, et cetera. And even internally, there's been some with the organ positions, et cetera. So it's kind of an experiment for twins to do if they haven't done that to see how similar are on the opposite sides. Science doesn't know who very much about Mira twins. Identifying them is actually quite subjective. There's no official diagnostic criteria. And for this reason, Miro twins have often been seen as a messy group in terms of research. Because myriad traits aren't consistent across twin peers, reproducible research is difficult, ordering on the impossible. We really don't know much about it at all. We know it happens in around one in four identical twins. And everything else is guesswork, we assume it's because when they identical twins split is maybe just after the time where the genes that determine left and right start being switched on, but we.

"Sports desk. Here's Brian Deane. The Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Astros tend to eight down in Houston last night. Christian yelich did hit his twenty fifth home run of the season in the law seem to teams back out again tonight. Our coverage on WTMJ starts at six thirty five. To fly ball, down the right field line. Drifting back is ready? And it's. Yes. Mardi gras doll, three run Homer and just like that it's ten eight up being cosmetic blessed by Granville, Bruce, losing ten eight. In Houston last night. Joining us live radio play by Cleveland. Jeff levering in Houston. Good morning, sir. How are you? I'm Greg, good morning, everybody. Well, they call them fastball. Ready for a reason Freddie Peralta through what about ninety percent? Fastballs. When he's on the mound, and West End it didn't work out so well for in. Previous study looked on the hit -able Caen stay in the rotation like this. Well, I think he can the brewers had so much confidence in him going into the season that, that he was in the starting rotation at the beginning of the season, didn't go out and try and signed starting pitcher like a wave mile era, Dallas hike or anything like that. They stuck with Freddie Peralta, and he shows flashes and Craig counsel talked about in the pre game show yesterday about how his highs are so high. But you kind of have to remember that he's only twenty three years old. He hasn't had full season in the big leagues yet there's going to be. Simpson growing pains with freight Peralta in the consistency is just not there yet. He had some good opportunities to get out yesterday. Just made a couple of bad pitches with two strikes, the for pretty Peralta. You know he didn't start throwing his curveball until spring training of last year either. So he hasn't really had secondary pitches entire career. He can still get onto this fastball. And it just wasn't working out for him last night in the two run homers. There were four of them last night, but Houston really hurt the brewers Jeff Craig was a little non-committal after last night's game about Freddie, even making his next start on this eight-game road trip who else might be in the mix. If Craig does decide to go a different direction. Yuli. She's seen is in line to come off the injured list in San Diego. So that's a possibility for sure. I also wouldn't be surprised as, as the brewers move towards the all star break your few weeks away from that there. This is a stretch where you only have one off day after this off day. That's coming up tomorrow before the bluish play against the giants. There's only one more off day until the all star break. So I, I also wouldn't be surprised to see Craig counsel. Go to six man rotation just to give these guys a little extra rest. You've got your seniors coming back. Gio Gonzalez is a little bit further behind, but that's another guy that's a possibility. So in the short term, I think she seemed might take his start if, if it's not gonna be Freddie parole. But if anything you might give an extra day arrest throw, she's seen back in the rotation and Freddie gets another opportunity once brewers get back on the stand. We're live with Jeff levering then the brewers radio network, Peru's three sixty end WTMJ producer, Nick, as the question why? No Braun at D H yesterday. It was claims. It was more left handed hitters Tonga. I asked to Craig counsel about that before the game yesterday to he wanted to get left handers in there against Brad peacock, because of his slider slide is really good against right handed hitters, and you saw that last night to we're all the left he's had good days against peacock, but the other guys struggle for right handed hitters. So that was the thinking behind be wanted to get Ben gamble in the lineup. Also, you get an extra day arrest. Ryan braun. So I know there's too often as this week, but Ryan Braun state healthy all season long, and now he's got a big test, Justin Burland, or he'll be in there today. So that was the thinking behind not having Bryant available yesterday. And starting lineup Jeff I wanted to ask you about Burland or it's always exciting to see a guy of his caliber ilk. Throw even if it's your team who excites you maybe currently in major league baseball outside of Orlando that you get excited going to the ballpark, saying, yeah, I get see that guy pitch today, max Scherzer is right there at the top of my list, he's competitive, you never know what you're going to get when you see max yours or any free, she out too, because he has his to his eyes are two different colors, too. So if you're hitter and you're looking at his eyes, I mean, that was scare me. First and foremost, honestly, through different color is blue and one is Brown. He has ever do that before, though. Oh, yeah. It's creepy. They've got a big sign in Washington DC, which has the two different colored eyes to a big billboard. When you strike somebody out the blue won a flash red really kinda creepy, but cheers her, here's a guy that, that every time he shows up any pitches. You think good things are going to happen for Landers in that same department. Stephen Strasburg to an extent Chris sale. I mean, those are just guys that are rattling off the top of my mind that I would want to come to the ballpark and see just because they're so electric, what might I Google. Search is going to be when I get off the show this morning. Mick going on right now. I'm in the moment. All right. Bruce radio announcer.
