"And maybe there's a little bit too much thinking about what you did the last pitch, and all that kind of stuff where it's like, now with the pitch clock, you just got to move on very quickly. You don't really have time to go over what you just did. You got to move on, throw your next pitch. And so there's some optimism with him this season that that's going to help him just kind of like lock in, throw his pitches, not thinking about the last one, think about the next one. Just go, go, go. So yeah, and then he's been working on some two new braking pitches. One's kind of a, he calls it a curveball, but it's more like a slurve, and then there's another breaking ball that's kind of more like a cutter like pitch. So I think, again, not to repeat myself, but for kikuchi, it's all about kind of fastball command two. And slightly different than brio, whereas brioche, it's like just getting in better spots in the zone. Kochi has got to start with Getty it in the zone, and then getting it in good spots as well. And then if there should prove to be an issue there, the Blue Jays do have a couple of really intriguing pitching prospects. I think one of them is really rocketed up our rankings here at fingers and has garnered great attention has been Ricky tieman. Do you think that Blue Jays fans might see him at some point this year and if not who amongst that sort of triple-A upper minor set? Do you think would be next in line to take starts at the big league level? Yeah, Ricky Titan has been like the name of camp. He's kind of been the guy that understandably so. I mean, he's got great stuff. He's a young dynamic player and you know, I think pitching prospects in general kind of capture the imagination for a lot of fans. And so I think it's possible we see him. I would be surprised if it happened before the second half. I think it's more of a second half type of thing. I mean, we have to remember, he's only 20 years old. Last year was his first pro season, and he climbed three levels and got all the way to double-A. So he has not pitched above double-A. I guess the decision now for the Blue Jays was even like, do you start them at double-A, very, very briefly, maybe, and then move them up to triple-A or do you just start them at triple-A? I'm sure we'll get an answer to that soon. But yeah, I would think a second half sort of debut for him would be, I don't know, I want to say likely, but I'll say possible for sure. It depends on the health too. Like if they're BJ's guy member in 2021, now it's a different situation because Alec minimum was old or he was a college pitcher. And all that. But the Blue Jays were in a situation where they needed a starter and they call him up and he I think he only had like four or 5 starts in triple-A at that point. And he had a great debut and he's not looked back since he's been, you know, he's been solid basically since his debut. It's kind of remarkable, honestly. The strides that manoa has made, but back to your question, would you have Mitch white who's maybe a guy that doesn't get mentioned? And he hasn't been with them a long time. He obviously came last year in the trade deadline, but he's kind of like the new raw stripling maybe where he could start the season. I mean, I know he's a little bit behind because he was dealing with a shoulder impingement. But in theory, when he's sort of ready to go, and when he's healthy, he can be a swing man for them. He can pitch out of the bullpen and be there long guy. He can also slide into the rotation. He could be used in like a piggyback sort of situation. So if you, you know, we're just trying to get, I don't know, four innings out of kikuchi or two ties to the order from kikuchi and then he brought in like a guy like Mitch white to pitch a couple innings and then you go to the rest of your bullpen. So Mitch white's a guy that could be called a bond, the Blue Jays have Zach Thompson, they got from a trade with the pirates. So he's another guy that's like, could be, I don't know that 6, 7th type of starter that you call upon. There's drew hutchison lasts from the past for the Blue Jays. He's been pitching making starts in camp, and I think he'll probably be one of those veteran spots start guy, so like when they need when they need someone, he might be called upon to. And then the bullpen was sort of middle of the pack last season for the full season, at least, according to fan grass war, which was an improvement over the previous year when it was a weakness and it's mostly the same group of guys that was there at the end of last season with the exception of Eric Swanson, who came over from Seattle and the Tasker Hernandez trade and then potentially Chad green and his ultra complicated contract. So what are the expectations for the relievers this season? Yeah, I mean, I think it's probably I see the bullpen is pretty similar to last year as well. I think that the way the Blue Jays are built, like it's probably still a team that's gonna be relying on offense. And again, like the defense, I think the thing with our bullpen is that there still is probably a lot of, there's still enough, I guess, pitching to contact in there, there's more swing and miss than there was last year with Eric Swanson. Obviously, maybe eventually Chad green. And some other guys mixed in, but I think with the outfield defense, they're gonna have maybe they're a little bit more comfortable with their bullpen, improving that defense. But yeah, I mean, I kind of see them similar. It's hard to know with bull puns. You look at last year and it's like, well, the Mariners and they're all the same guys, but it's like they could have a completely different season with their bullpen. You never know. So I think the Blue Jays have some really solid pieces there. I think Jordan one was really blossomed into an excellent closer. He's very reliable. Jimmy Garcia, who's looked really good in camp. I think he's leaving for the WBC here and he's looked good. I think Eric Swanson will actually be a good ad for the Blue Jays. I think it's a different look. I guess that's the one thing about the Blue Jays bullpen that I don't know if it's totally unique to them, but one of the things they've talked about is how they have different looks so you have like a side arm or like, you have a guy like Trevor Richards who's got like a change up that he uses mazes like they're lefty, sinker baller.

"Deadline role long. And our number one. Just go through this. We should not let a frustrated yet. Pitched well five good. any sixty. Some pitches led a distraction of how pissed he is and maybe not maybe probably had a better a better way to voice it so it didn't sound selfish but i love competitive fire. I'll take a fighter over a a meek and submissive pitcher who's afraid to either fail or afraid to get after. I just think that there's times when you place it and there's a time and i've said it for years i'm not i'm not a out loud laundry guy. Take care of that behind closed doors and scream and yell all you want. But that's called sports but you don't want it to come off to your teammates your manager selfish but dusty great witness but such a great come from behind win and this is what you go to the podium with. I mean just and that's honestly why would send him home. My thing is. I'm not gonna let you derail this team because you're choosing to be self. The question is though in what you're saying rail. Yeah i was gonna say he's not powerful enough to derail the team and he's not he's not in a position to distracts. No that's what it is. it's like anything else. You just don't want to come to the ballpark today. And the first thing you talk about on a day game is a game that you don't wanna you don't wanna were. Hey man. what about what jacob. Well j. competitive. I can already hear the answer right but it's just let's listen. You pitched five innings. I know you want more. And i also think he's thinking in his mind ota rizzi postseason in his mind. Like they're only gonna go pitching much for this team. Just you have to be aware of the situation. This is a speed bump folks. This isn't some big amount in this gonna disrupt them. There's gotta be there's enough leadership on the team to where this will not faster. And if it festers jayco too risky guess. What the hill. They wilson of ethics. That's exactly right now. one time. Listen one time. I i completely understand what people are frustrated But you don't want it to turn into a if it happens two or three times in the door dusty office last night and go in there and yellow and ryan and let him let him in front of the camera right. Say these things. it's not. Hey go in there to grown estimates and dusty. Sit your ass down. We'll work this out and in five days be prepared to pitch again and if he if you're good we'll see last night analytics. Third time around. Let me explain it to you fix that and make it. We'll talk about a sixth adding averaged the lineup. First time one ninety nine second time to thirty five third time. Three nine o'clock. I'm usually on the players side but you know what pick and choose the spots and when necessary in a loss the frustration may amounted. He gets wrapped around and says i only gave up two hits the fifth inning. I should have come out for the six. I get it but you know what frustration. There's just a time at a place to air. It and i'm not sure that was the time especially when you've had five innings to take when people say count to ten before you say something stupid. He had five innings to say. You know what. I'll go into see dusty. I don't need to make this a big deal because he pitched pretty well for five minutes enough to get them a win right now or at least to get them in position to win and they go on and win robert. What's up man. How you doing good morning. Good morning guys. i'm over here. Gassner and their hostile football players going at it. I think spring branch high school and that makes me tired. I get up early. Let's a lot of teams now. You know real quick robert all over. I think chip. Kelly was one of the originals started that they started practicing like oregon like before class five because they felt the energy and all that research they done analyze the stuff that they were doing all that stuff before class. They were getting their prac- so some believing that not only for the heat but at their best because they're thinking and then why can they haven't had lunch in the afternoon so not a bad gig man. What's on your mind robert. Yeah well i was gonna say You know i had we done that. Had we practice in the morning and not afternoon. We'd probably we may not know into my senior year. I don't know i think I was talking with a friend last night during the after After tucker slapped the ball in the right sold i believe in. I don't know if you drove somebody in. But i mean i've seen we. We got a team man. We got a lineup and he said well you know i'm a little. I'm a little disappointed with what now. What now he said. This team seems a little block. He said you got all this great leadership. And i agree with him. You got brantley brantley usually tucker your on. I love the type of leadership the the top of players they are. They just go to the plate. They don't they're not raw. Rog is quiet guys but it almost seems like. Are we missing a springer trigger guy. That just gets them pumped up and i thought bregman may add that when he came back. He's a he's kind of a raw raw guy but it just seems like a lot of times they just are missing something. And it's like so didn't odor rizzi thing happens and it's like maybe something. These guys can rally around and get a little fire in their belly. I don't know. That's that's all. I have and i'll hang up and listen appreciate you guys. Thank you appreciate it robert. I personally don't feel that way. I personally feel like sparks talked about yesterday. Their they're board. yeah. I really where they've been. How many years in now for the core group of this. Since i mean for a lot of them since two thousand fifteen. It's been the same story every year and it doesn't make it okay. No doesn't make it okay. I think that they are so into a routine of when they get to this time of the year they are going to. The poster was a challenge. There's there's not if they were a game back in the division. I think you'd see a less boredom. I'll either sent the season because all the sense of urgency and they missed george springer. There's no right now. There's no denying his energy. But i don't think it's an interesting and maybe odor that it who knows you never know. But i'll if they're bored with with with the lead they have. I'm okay with an anti-us get to you before break real quick but what's on your mind stats gotten on. Our team is horrific because i think they jimmy garcia. Yeah what what do you think. mc would've. I don't know they're they're okay. They're probably right in line with where he'd been. He's got a year to three forty seventy when he's with miami. He has three seventy five year with the astros. Just seems like he gets a lot of runs. I maybe it's just every time. I'm checking the boxer or watching the game. I just have no confidence in that guy. I don't know what it is i. Just he's given up runs a total of three of his fourteen outings. Yeah and that ain't bad. But i mean i guess just looks bad when he pitched one inning europe run any. Let me ask you this in. The big picture are you. Are you really worried about his impact right now. Now what is what happened when you got all these pictures and and lord knows we can always winning. You have what you had last night. You got the cooke baker going. Well i got guys. I out four or five guys. Don't want anything so isn't that bring him out from the sixth. Yeah that's and that's a good thing to handy to have that ability that you have some players you can count on there so many good things too like i. i'm not overly worried about. I mean i know you bring him in. He brought him over and trade deadline. But i i think that i. I don't think he's going to be the difference in whether their world series champ or not if that no he's he's a solid guy in the fifth or sixth then. No question gives you the inning. The pitch from being problem. I think the problem.

This is not an actual disaster or something that was inevitable, and that makes the Venezuelan health crisis. She says even more disturbing Jason Bobi, an NPR news.
