Five one era post all-star break us three with a two point five seven iranian stats. He's one with a one point two ninety i._r._a. Specifically against the rangers. I like him over harada. Rondo is <hes> post all-star. Ah break wanted to with the seven point two zero era. He's slipping grea twenty two innings pitched. He's given up sixteen earned as well talk. Great stats bats. Hey you good sets. Thanks buddy homework homework best bet you know i hate this because i hate taking overs. I know i haven't hit it over on a full game all year. Well buckle up because that's all you got three fucking over shit shit so fucking looking buckle up for today. Okay i got the giants and nats over nine. K let that sink in there for or you go giants nats over nine. The reason why i am taking this ca- the reason why i am taking this joe ross is on the mound on for the nets. He's got an eight year a i mean. He's started in the pen this year and he's started his last three games but he's giving up runs so i'm not a big joe ross guy <hes> sean anderson for the giants a seven point seven e._r._a. In july so not great there either and then san francisco in the nets are six and seventh respectively versus right handed pitching so you've got to top ten clubs against right handed pitching against to write pictures that are struggling <hes> gimme gimme the overnight and i can giants and that's a good number tone. It is a good note and the open your eyes a little bit. I'm not looking at it over to you know yeah. I mean i don't like to listen. I don't like the overs but when the stats steer me in that direction. I'm not getting those either you gotta stick with the science stick even water water on that one giant spots a half irs five at all tow. It did feel free to fucking tow the shadow that but i'm telling you the over nine put it in. I don't feel like i don't feel good about what else what else you got buddy. I got something here for the second game of that double header. Okay eh day. Indians have announced their starter but i love the ranger than lance lynn getting plus a half at plus one fifteen gene. I five k. value is incredible lance lynn the last time he didn't go six innings was april twenty third. He's been incredible. The guy has been the one of the most consistent pitchers in the league all year and i love that value there. Hey we're gonna throw it in for you buddy. How's that make you feel isn't okay second game of a doubleheader to battle tired. Okay <hes> talk what else you got. <hes> we got a lanta minnesota taking atlanta that one money line max freed starts with the for the braves he's twelve and four with a four point zero seventy i._r._a. This season he seven one with a four point four yara on the road post all-star break three zero with a two point seven six era and that's going to be a theme in my picks starting to focus on who's playing well after the break. Oh yea about what you've done for me. Lately correct martine whereas post all-star break owen one with a six point zero zero. Let's go. Let's give the advantage though maxine. I'll take an atlanta in this one. Yeah i mean there's i like that one. Yeah there's no reason to look at <hes> what they done before the show i mean but it can can be deceiving some of us look overall yar a and if that really hot <hes> you know first half of the season but they like fucking eight-year ray and you know you're just looking at the three point nine four overall. You gotta look into it. No relates her heart rate now to put a number on that barrios last night and he's he's been almost unhittable for the twins all right my next pick you already know it's an over. What game is it going to be. It's going to be seattle seattle and san diego padres over nine and a half. Oh let me tell you why tell me why joey lucchessi fucking great name by the way hoyer should be gangster mr fucking. He is gangster. He has six july six year in august and his one start kuchis going on the mound for for the mariners he had a seventy or in june sixty or july thirteenth e._r._a. In his one start an august and then same as the giants nats that was worse right handed pitching this game these two teams respectively sixth and seventh versus lefthanded pitching so got to top top ten teams right against left handed pitching <hes> both pitchers left-handers both pitchers struggling so once again pattern developed. We're going over in that right fifteen the in fifteen earned in his last fifteen. That's for q choose well out something to think about <hes> guppy what else you got buddy. I was towing the water on that. One padres. I five at minus forty just because i like lucozzi a little bit more took over towing it. I got one more got phillies diamondbacks k- <hes> it's nothing to get vargas. He's decent in in his first start with the phillies. He was all right but zac galen going for the d backs his last ask three. He's gone seventeen and a third with three earned. Twenty six got a two point seven to your a and the first five at minus one twenty five. I love that number. I mean in kabul stamping gaylon. One point eight five aces all-star break in vargas being lefty. Guess what the bax eat lefties for breakfast eighth best testing team in the league since i left us on the same page my last over as cubs over ten no game in the series so far has gone under eleven so something to think about their oakland is fifth versus lefthanded pitching jose jose cantata. He's got a five point five six e._r._a. In july has been okay. He's been okay but the the oakland a.'s hot versus lefthanded pitching so that's what i'm thinking thinking about their homer bailey since he's gone over the hasn't been great seven point three to your in july cubs bats are obviously not terrible so i'm taking the over are in the third and final game of that series see if we get three overs in a row there all right. Do you have anything to say about it. I liked that okay. You're the over. I'm with you man. I'm not the over over. I'm the first year on the over more than any ways the over the first five the first five five guy now. Don't don't try to steal it from us. I don't try to don't do that. Okay todd you've anymore. I do have one more. The white sox money line at detroit. Ivanova starts for socks. He's been turning things around it a shitty season but in these last past three starts he has a zero point nine yard. All that's pretty good yeah yeah so i look for him to have a big game. Continue <hes> you know stretch this into two four fucking epoch starts and the lefty tyler alexander starting for the tigers. He's been great at home. If you look at one point two nine era it's only over seven innings. All i know is that the white sox have very well against left-handed their seventh and league since july first in that stat so i look for the offense every day for the socks. I mean look for nobody to have a particularly good day on the mom bad day for detroit. I don't see anybody losing in two times in a row to the tigers <hes> no. I don't think that happens very often at probably never if ever so no. I like that pick. I like all of our picks looking good what we do here every day. Is we put all of our pixel new parlay. We caught our cup of coffee day parlay because if you're spending five dollars on a cup of coffee you might as well spend five dollars parlay that's going to it's going to be some money might as well i mean people who've played the cup of coffee a day parlay this year so far they're up. They are <hes> they're up dollars and that's what we do here on this podcast. We just try to get you up dollars.

"This is June thirtieth and this is the Bruins beat on Social Media And welcome back to the Bruins beat on US media. My Name Is Marinov Ski and we are one day away from July, which is absolutely wild, which means we're also that much closer to playoff hockey which we don't ever say. Except in this year.

In a while also has fun catching up with him. I was next to him for most of the playoffs last year asked specifically through the entire cup run so. It was nice to get job.

We talked about sort of what if a player decides, they just don't Wanna come back for health reasons or other reasons, potential hub cities which are supposed to drop this week if they have not already recording on Monday, so maybe drops Monday night, I don't know. And then we get into a fun conversation on. Who on the bruins currently would be in of fame? and. It's a lot less than people think.

I got youth thought that your phone malfunction near Audio Valve function the will be the PAS was so long. You probably checked your phone Oh. My God, but any rate. Here's my conversation. With Kelvin. Matt Calman Matt. What's up? How's it going? You didn't know how to. Find Me Free agents or I don't usually identify in okay I usually identify in the intro that I do but Yeah, how have you been? Or mostly. Long walks and. Follow twitter. Sealed. The nonsense is everywhere, but the long walks kinda everybody right now I feel like the first month or quarantine. That was all I did was walks. Walk through the woods and I got bored of IT I can do this trail. Board but if It was like a way to replace driving to listen to podcasts and keep up on that, but then even that got boring so. Yeah. It's funny I do now. Led to Amherst a few times. I listen to podcasts driving up there, but. A lot of my podcasting listening comes when I play Xbox. A place of NHL. Put headphones in just I'm I'm listening to podcast three hours So you walk in, listen to podcasts. You're not listen to anything at all now now. Yeah, listen to podcasts, maybe a little music in You know a couple of errands every week. Maybe go to the grocery store once every other week and take out. Starting a bad thing. What podcast you listen to? Mostly Marc, Maron Gilbert Godfrey a baseball tonight hockey central. Thirty one awesome course of like that. Yeah I've I've been less and less on the sports end of it lately. I'm actually a I listen to Joe. Rogan I'll course. I like I think it's interesting lot to different perspectives on now listen to sports, ones you catch up on stuff, but yeah, so where can people find your work right now, or are you completely free agent? Free agent except for a little bit work I do for Forbes Dot Com. You know obviously tweet that stuff out, but right now. What happens, too? Is that my I can only write a certain. Number of stories a month for them so after be judicious in what I decided. I'm going to write about what can write about and then it's always a panic toward the end of the month. It's like often writes up now and something happens in the last three days of the month. Will I be screwed or A lot more stresses should be for something. That doesn't pay that much in the. is so relaxed, but. At least every once in a while, it's it's hard to I. Don't know about you. Sit down the right now when you're right once every ten days. It's a lot harder to which your thoughts together in. Keeping organizers so. It is and I think that's a big thing with with there being no. Real like big news at least in the bruins world, which is the one thing I write about? There's no, we're not at Games. There's no right now. Usually it's chew. We're records on June twenty-ninth. Diving into free agency and you know where's Tori crew assigned? And that's not even happening now you know. Little tidbits on Kovin, who who doesn't and there's not there's not a lot to opine about. It's funny though the Patriots. They got Cam Newton. We were. Patriots beat writers. We'd have a gold mine of things to talk about to write about ruins I mean patriots writers have had a lot to write about most of the the Patriots capita. Everybody going right, so it's true they have so we'll get into a little bit brew and stuff. So, it's funny Bruce Cassidy talked. Monday morning so recorded on Monday for the listeners. We won't say today because you'll be confused. We'll say Monday morning and he was asked about. If players have shown any hesitations in doing in jumping right back into playing right and he said nobody is of yet hopefully nobody going forward. I think the players WanNa. Get back training camp and see what it's GonNa. Look like so far so good on our end with everyone in the organization on that, and then someone asked about what if a player was what, if a player kingdom, and said he didn't WanNa play. Interesting answering said we try to get to the root. Is it a health issue or something deeper in there If that's the way they felt I don't know how we stop them. It's that simple I. think it's the players right to work in a safe environment. And I think that's true. Someone comes to him and says look. I don't WanNA play. Because of health resent welcome to play because I want see my family for three months right I mean. What can you say to that Do you think this will ever pop up with this team. Well, I mean I think two things have happened today that on Monday like you said that kind of just reading about before we got on his call at four o'clock on Monday is first of MLB. You have three players. That are opting out already. Just like you're talking about, they just decided. They're not gonNA play. There's no. Serious reason for them. They're not sick. They're not. compromised, but they just don't see the risk being worthy Ryan Zimmerman and Joe Ross from Washington, and likely from Arizona so that's just the start of the mammal be players. We don't know who else is gonNA. Come out in the next couple of days in the second thing was anti. Joe Put out that report that of the people that are reported phrase to. Face to face three whichever one it is now, yeah. They. What six percent of tested positive so far? kind of high I mean. I guess you're always for two percent. Infection rate in success kind of highest seems and. I think when it comes to it. We know the hockey players. They've been taught forever to play regardless of what's happening whether it's Patrice Bergeron in his class longer. Chara is demolished. Face in. You know you talk about all these things, but then you see some of these guys here. Kevin. Be Exa the former defenceman. He's on several podcasts and shows and talked about players. He's talked to that say. They are kind of Leery of flame as opposed to when they would, they would play or whatever injury. This is a little different for them so. it's tough to you can't say now. What's it going to be in three weeks? And that's why they've waited so long. Right to the name. These subsidies cities is that they don't. Everything's changing on the ground every day, and plus you have to get the facts as opposed to the lies that are coming out of certain places that are trying to downplay everything to benefit them politically, so it's GonNa be a hard thing in Any player would be within his rights. When are you preparing? Brings up escrow. Eight nine miss. Wait a missed the point dude. but an opposite it also to show that he doesn't understand what escrow is, but nonetheless. you know the financial ramifications are one thing the health reasons or another, and you couldn't really blame anyone especially guys. That have young children that I babies, and of course the most important. What is the wives? And it's funny. You hit on a really important point. Is that hockey players don't? They they fight through these things typically factory injuries, not usually if you have to face up pandemic, but in this case all signs point to they do fight through it. And that's why I feel like. If there's any league that does make this return, it's the NHL and it's these players. There's like no I don't feel like there's not I feel like there's not going to be a lot of players who do say I. Don't WanNa play. Because of health reasons, there wasn't interesting. The NBA and JR reported on this on June twenty second. Was that the Troll Blazers Trevor Reza was opting out of the NBA restart because of a visitation things with his son. He had a one month visitation window with his young son to with him. It was something over. A says tr- ARESO starters involved in a custody case over his twelve year old son in the mother's decision to grant court ordered one month visitation period during the League's quarantine of teams in Orlando. Florida letter reasons that uses parenting responsibilities over competing with the blazers now. I don't know if that's going to happen in the NHL, but there's also why. Saying these you know Y, Y you leaving the family for four months or family members saying. Somebody talking about what if my kids get sick while I'm out with you. Know I'm worried. What does your wife gets sick while you're out and no one's there to take care of the kids so exactly. That's the other part of it in just You know it's going to. Keep talking about all I'm sure the legal. Keep US safe in. All these things, but when you think about how. In the first place it took the NBA so long to shut down in the first place in the NHL basically reacted to that. right. Up until. The night before there were games right, they were thinking too much about protecting anybody so and the fact is you try to protect everyone, but it's not a it's not. It's never going to be perfect, and especially I mean I i. don't even understand how these guys are going to stay in this bubble, any of the sports, but you know. Of course we're talking about hockey right now and where you don't have any of that, you know. Get away from the rink kind of life. Not even just not even for bonding, but just for your own mental capacity. You're just going to go in and play. You're going to sit in a hotel room or in our hotel restaurant in these safe places and. It's it's kind of daunting I think the guy's really quite understand what it's GonNa. Be especially. You're not GonNa have the stories much of the training staff there the? The things to all these different machines, they have all the type of treatments they get it. It's going to be. And two for two months. At least you know if you're if you're going to be I don't even say the two teams that are going to the file. The teams that are going to Rowan's. That might be a harder thing than just then getting. If if there's a rash of infection, just living your life like that is going to be. A heck of a thing will now for these teams that are in the play in rounds. There's two reasons to lose number one is. is to. Not Be there anymore and number two is potential. Get the first overall pick in the draft. I mean. That was the whole crazy thing. We really can't discuss with Bruins, because the Bruins have no chance getting the first overall pick. It probably traded within a few years. anyways, but you know when you think about that aspect of get a you know like we like mass. We need to get away from doing already. Jacques doing other things and engine walks, and I'm younger granted I, have xbox which is amazing, but that is not going to all of my time. It gets boring after also I. Mean they're going to have this extra group of players with them, right? I mean I'm not sure what the king that? What do they ever put out the final number how many extras they're going to have? Cassidy set about twenty to twenty thirty skaters today. Believe that's what he said. Right so that's only like. Eight or nine extra in at least two of them are going to be goalies right so. Think about the Bruins played Ottawa. Lost Five defenseman. Right off the top, so yeah, that happens to you like. Where are you getting players from? That's that's on Michael. LYLES and Stepney Akron speed dial. Exactly I mean you know from day one when they talked about resuming and this is especially true for baseball. And Hockey as well, but I think baseball was at the forefront of the beginning. 'cause everyone expected baseball. The first back is how many how many players is enough to have. When a you have. Players at are going to get. You'RE GONNA have probably more injuries than normally right just polls in strains from guys being out so long and then going into playoff, instead of having a real training camp I mean no matter what you say you can really be. It's not you're not gonNA. Have that five months of playing before you play the play. So, that's GonNa cost, and then just. Are you not going to be able to replace players that stink? Because you're going to have to think twice about like okay. This guy might be. Terrible, but he's better than the guy who hasn't played in. Three extra weeks. That has played a game. What happens with the perfection line dries up. Has they turn it up performance like they did in the Stanley Cup I mean. Maybe you're counting on the nickel to be young guy, just jumping there with all his youthful enthusiasm against. y'All that enthusiasm. It'll be interesting to see what what shaped. Some of these guys are in I. Mean we all I think the first thing we all thought of when they went out with all G.. What's GonNa? Look like when he comes back alright so. Or nicorette Jimmy her neck. Yeah, whichever achievement of you know whatever? Yeah, well. There have quarantining together in their their family's farm. I believe. So there, you know. We talked to them. A month a month ago, he looked fine. Release his face so. You know. Who knows. His face is fine. Not to pick on him, but I mean the fact. Is that the guys? Did it have the right? It's not even a thing where you're going to pick up somebody for being lazy or anything. The guys I mean we heard so many guys. They didn't have the equipment at home and it was sold out when they tried to order. Because everyone was doing the same thing right see. What's funny? Though is I mean I'm not a hockey player, but I'll put myself down as someone who's gotten in better shape since quarantine started I tell consistently in Berkeley and. Gone Down to the basement done a bunch of. Prison push-up workouts. No. But I've lost you a little bit of the beer belly and Kinda shed some some extra weight. Even really have much to begin with, but hey I'm a better shape. Why the hell can't these guys be now? But I mean it is true. They don't have the equipment and they usually do have all this equipment. They have people working with them so. We're giving the after the doubt there. You mentioned hub cities very important. A lot of people thought it would be Vancouver and somebody in couvert dropped out last week and we do not want that here so now. It feels like there's there's five that they're talking about. Chicago L. A.. Toronto Vegas and Edmonton the lead. The latest report basically says Toronto in Vegas or are done deals, but so so that's what I think I think Toronto in Vegas should be if not if not vegas than Edmonton. Toronto basically seem like the most equipped to handle it I still don't know how they're not gonNa like if you're coaching in Vegas. How do you not want to go? Down the streets to the casinos order the nightclubs well. The nightclubs are open, but the or maybe they are in Vegas I don't know but. Like? Are these are these tier or these areas able to actually. Keep these guys contained like how do because the NBA's talked about having video games there and movie screenings because all Disney stuff. Nhl GonNa do have like country. Singers perform I mean I i. don't know what they're GONNA do. What they're GONNA do to. Amuse. Them, I, guess. At. The very least that I'm thinking about this, allow just when you're talking about is like with Vegas at least I mean y. you can't go out necessarily to the restaurants there's. So many amazing restaurants that they could get takeout from so that might be a boost to the business, and it's also be some varieties, Louis that aspect of it I guess I mean. How much these guys eat, you know non obviously. Charles. They're going to have wheat, germ or whatever but. Some of the guys are like the real food. So. That might be one benefit. Then I. Guess you know beyond that. If they're in the hotels. Maybe they can close the pools the pull off. Just I haven't for the players. They can slam a little bit. It's going to be a hundred and twenty degrees, but. You know they have. Air conditioned bungalows and stuff, so they can do that. I mean I. Guess There's enough. Waste entertain guys in the casinos in keeping the public out. You can even even have the some of the tables be open for the guys to Campbell, a little bit down. Who has the biggest cannonball? The cool exactly I know Gary Batman's opinion would be to have gambling, but he's the one who put a team in. VEGAS IS GONNA. Let them have GIG as a hub city Toronto on the other hand. I mean I guess it's of the restaurants, so the same but. It's maybe not as A. Exciting, just the hotels are maybe more than not resorts like the ones in Vegas. Let's a little different than. I guess guys can go get private tour of the hall of fame. TORONTO'S GONNA? Give up the Bruins the. Room Motel six on. Let them exactly what. Everyone's GonNa. Know where they're staying. They're going to be getting nonstop. Emergency calls fire alarms. Everyone's going to torture the Bruins. Yeah, because they're going to finally Toronto's playing a little bit into the summer. It's the first for them. But that is good point and you wonder if they're gonNA release where these guys at people find out. If they call, there's only gonNA. Go along with that. They can use so. It'll be easy to our down, yeah. I wonder what they do with the maple leafs. Like, they're just going to be in their own homes. They're gonNA. You're saying now that originally. They said that maybe they were going to have the team not played. It's an it's hub. Think maybe more when they were doing for with the to hogs and the fact, the way things are going to hell in some places. They're just letting them. Take stay in their home. It doesn't. It's not like damage of advantage I mean. There's fans so. The only benefit is if they actually did say something and let let them use their locker room. which is stupid that is. Also that! Hey, you know what benefit if Toronto loses you. How great the jokes be that! They lost with the playoffs in their own city. That would be yeah tremendous. We don't know where they're going to play the final, so maybe they'll play the final there in the in Toronto finally. Get to see the Stanley Cup, except when it comes to visit Damien out so it could for them outright could for them, so you mentioned the hall of fame, and I want to get into this. Okay, because obviously, the hall of fame is come up marrying hosts. McGill former Bruin for a year almost a year and a half, but he chose the wrong place. Shrum. Kim Got in. Begs the question that we ask all the time. Who are the current hall of famers on this Bruins team and to me, Matt Calvin. Yeah, there's two maybe three and potentially for so the definite subversion Chara. Everybody's everyone agrees on that, but then here's the. Maybe here's a potentially. Maybe rask right. They are weird about goalies. and. You have to ask the question with Brad Marshawn, is he? You know if he continues on this pace. He's controversial, but. Definitely, you know with the numbers. He put up this year last year. Does that for you know a few right out more years? I think he's guy gets in guy who does not get into David Krejci Dave. Creatures Not Hall of Famer the stuff by David Krejci being a hall of fame nonsense. But, who would you pick who your guys yeah? I mean it's way early, but obviously posture knocks on the track I mean if that's your way, he scores. Any if he if he stays healthy, can have in veteran S. career is not going to challenge these record. The way of education is but. These up there like you said Birger on definitely is, there is first ballot is very hoses first ballots in Bertram by far is US Donald Trump clearly is a first ballot I mean. The guy is just He's a groundbreaking player that you'll never see the type of player baby again in our lifetimes to have to be that size, and have that agility in all the strength and everything that he's accomplished and the Martian thing. You're right I mean you see some of these goalscorers. If if he can rack up a few more forty years, or you know I guess now that he's more of a playmaker, maybe some. Sixty seven the assist years If especially if they win the compass second time, he'll be a factor but There are some things holding back because he didn't really start hitting stride goals going wise until he's older you look at guys like John Leclair, keep chuck. Ngoni the guy whoever wants to keep bringing up I. Don't know I think the only people that don't think. Alexander will gillies a hall of Famer or people that are on the hall of Fame Committee. I don't know I haven't read enough. I haven't read any arguments against him so. You know it's. It's clearly hard for wings and is hard like you said for goalies to harass clearly. Are Legal tender for more than a decade is an original six franchise. You know the they're all time. Leading Games played wins. He was he's. is He still the all time? Leader in Saint Percentage Check. He's up there in the top three or five. Two trips to the finals already. But You know so maybe if you look at it right now. The the hall of fame goalies right now. Probably Ham in price I don't know maybe put Crawford and quick in there as well. quick was a little too short and Crawford's I felt like has. Too Short of a prime. He wants to cops though and I don't know what they judge always on because to me. Why is it Curtis Joseph in the Hall of fame? Why isn't Tommaso Hall of fame? The goal is really get short shrift there I. IT doesn't make a lot of sense since they never have any transparency. Never explain themselves. We don't know what what they're lacking, but They've opened I. Mean I'm not one of these ones against Kevin Low in the hall of fame, I mean people who covered Kevin Lau and saw him on a regular basis. Say That even if he wasn't an elite hall of fame talent that he was, he was such a huge contributor on off the ice to six cup winners. That is no problem with him. Being there, I mean and it's so hard to quantify these defensive defenseman. But they've opened themselves up a little bit different can of worms here where you're not gonna see guys that have won the Cup six times, but they're going to be equal or better at him. Being a state defense spending, they're going to have to determine which ones go in the hall of fame. That's that's the only issue with me with him. Going into me and it's going to it that relates to the goal is to make us out. We don't know how they're judging goalies. And the thing is I. Mean I. Think once if Raskin can get that cup as a starter I think. A guy who gets in if he gets the copies but. Again. You can't really I mean I hate people that based on just on that just a championships I mean? And that's part of the problem part of the prompt to maybe with the Kevin, lowe thing, not nothing personal can symbol. Like how much could should you benefit from being on a team that won the cup. Six. Times five times with the at the with I've been playing with. How many other hall of Famers were on those teams? And the thing is with the hall of fame, like I'm a huge championship guy and judging people off that, but when it comes to hall of fame, like the regular season means almost more in a sense because that was the majority of your your your playing time exactly. But it shouldn't keep a guy out if the rest of his team was. Not too great. And it's the same struggle and got right in The other thing is you mentioned Chara. Was it you last year. Who said that you thought Charles was better now than he was in when his norris trophy. Year. Didn't you say something about the fact that I mean the dental Chari in two thousand. Eight two thousand like thirteen is just. Unbelievable I mean. Is is definitely you know it's amazing to see how he's? How well suited? He is forty three now for the game the way it's played in how much ridiculously? Faster is i. don't even necessarily say it's better It's faster, but not I mean those that Nour's years in other years where he didn't win. The Nour's because they were just writing alleged from every time. You can't compare I. It was just unbelievable the way he was those years in and the copier, but especially. On, he was just unbelievable that year I mean. Look at a defenseman. He had around him on that team just watching. The. Fenway winter. Classic last night in watching. They had a defense pair Derek Morris and Matt Conway Oh my God. It's kind of a cloud. Show out there. That was just in. January of that year by the time they got to the playoffs. You Know Mars has gone. So then you look at the year before that with you know Farris who wasn't really ferris yet because he couldn't stay on the line on his blown up his groins every other day and Aaron Ward was kind of down on his last legs in. The late Steve Door was playing some forward to playing some diesel that that the core was even worse than the ten. The ten one in Erie was carried them to the game seven the second round, he was just phenomenal, but the member remember what an offensive player! He was I mean. He played on the power play, and no one could stop his shot and he. He hardly ever used the slapshot and. Could put up some points so. That was. was, was trying I mean if he quit. Let's say he retired through at forty. He was hall of Fame Automatically Yeah. You know anything now is gravy and then Matt. Hun Wick was also powerplay quarterback back then which I watched for highlights now and I'm like what the Hell is he doing? Also Dennis Wideman was on those. wideman was on P P one. And he was, he was the lead guy now. MPP TO BERGE ON. Mars were the points in the. Will, also I remember Towards. The twenty thirteen years the sword, the middled cloud was using him in front of the net. was using chart in front of the net here digging in corners and stuff. They were begging to do that for years, and then he finally did it in work. You know enough I think actually. In Two thousand eleven. Didn't he do it in two thousand eleven? Call that is remember the twenty thirteen when he's in front of the net screen, diver is wrong that. But. Yeah, no, I, mean he it is incredible, and the office of side of him was also extremely good. It's funny to see the watching those old games even in two thousand ten years ago. How much the NHL game has changed like look at how the game is played, now verse then, and it's just so different. You know it's just so much more skill based more crisp now back then it was more you know. Dump and chase. Speed wasn't as big of a thing so. It is gonNA game has house. It's just not as physical at all. I mean now. It's not some of the things they used to do it like you said even just five ten years ago. It's Kinda crazy that I mean you hope that? It keeps people interest. It's hard. Yeah, no, it's. The Bruins near tough guy type mentality these days, but anyways. Thank you for joining us. So people can read you over Forbes and then I think you get picked up once. Hockey or once things start up again. hopefully and then people can listen to you more on here. 'cause no more. No, more escape pod, so you'll. You'll work your way into one of the recurring. Bruins beat now, but anyways. Thank you for joining in. Me I'm Evan. Baranovsky uber speechless for some great rest of your week.

Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin

36:57 min | 1 year ago

Greg Ambrosius

"It's time to eat. Four sit down and get ready to consume an abundance of fantasy football knowledge from Ross, Tucker and Joe Dolan me now. On the fantasy, feast and podcast. Yeah, let's eat. Maybe it is the fantasy feast eating podcast presented by fantasy points dot com just use the glorious code feast all capital Letters. You can go against me and Joe in our July best ball. Ten draft I'm just about coming up on my tenth round pick year and our June best ball. Ten draft I'm Ross Tucker former NFL offensive Lineman, five teams seven years bunch of podcasts booger. McFarland Andrew Brandt were awesome on the Ross Tucker Football podcast this week yesterday we actually. Actually talked a little bit about betting on Golf I. Just Bet for the biggest bet on the Shambo. That's that's my only rule forbidding on golf and we talked about what Cam Newton means for the new. England Patriots Season Win total on the even money podcasts, but I must admit I am not the star of this show. That is Joe Dolan at F. G.. Underscore Dolan. He is the man owner everything surveyor editor, whatever fantasy points dot com code feast. That's the key and speaking of fancy points. DOT, com. Code Feast. We've got Joe Two more winners are I two winners for the July best ball ten draft Kevin Her, who is relentless now eighty sign up a fancy points dot com code feast. He's emailed me like four times with Amazon purchases, other things, relentless and Sean Davis. He's in his well now. He's fancy. Points Dot Com code feast, but he had a story. That overwhelmed me, and so he's in his well, so we're going to have four more episodes in the month of July, which means every? Episode here we will announce two new winners for our July Best Ball, ten draft and remember in August. That's the big daddy of them all. That's the Rose Bowl you up. That's the season long lead. You can enter to being against me and Joe. Joke morning. Good afternoon. Whatever happy to have you. It's morning. Still here. Ross the same with you. I don't know when people are going to be watching this, but it's good. It's good to be with you. You might notice that throughout the next couple of weeks. The the room behind me is going to get gradually emptier because I moved to South Carolina in weeks. You and I probably should have to have a talk about that Ross because my schedule might be a little thrown off, but but I will always have time for drafting I will I will absolutely guarantee you that or my phone I, as a matter of fact. Deck in our in our current best ball ten, which has been a room full of sharks, as I might imagine, I'm not getting really any good values, but but it's been a lot of fun, and and certainly it'll be fun for up for our listeners to to join and compete against us. It's the best. The mock draft is dead Ross. The fantasy mock draft is dead. They're useless. You have to play ball. I cannot wait next week. We'll go over our June draft, and you can tell me where I went wrong where you went wrong. Because that is real life experience in the decisions that all of our listeners are making right now, and we'll be making in August I don't use this word. loosely. I. Think I used it for John Hanson. And I'M GONNA. Use It for today's guest. Joe and that is Greg Ambrosia at Greg Ambrosius on twitter mentioned earlier, you said Joe you can see us now. We have our own youtube page. YouTube dot com slash Ross Tucker, NFL and Intern Casey does a great job of posting the clips to our twitter and instagram at Ross Tucker pod and I'm glad we have intern Casey because Greg and brochures. A is a living legend in the fantasy industry and be his background is awesome. I have actual NFL game balls. That like I got. I am helmets Joe has fantasy points, and these all swag out, and yet here we got a guy coming on as a guest Greg Ambrosius at Greg Ambrosia on twitter, and he's got a clay us fat head, and a packers, fat head right over each of his shoulders. Greg Dot is legit. My friend Aaron Rodgers had had his right here to my right as well so the whole office is geared to this I mean. Mean I've lived my whole life here in Wisconsin, sixty years and people are like. Why do you still live? There is because I have an umbilical cord attached to Lambofield Dad bought season tickets in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty eight, so they've been in our family for what's that sixty two years and it's now under my name element. Dad's passed away, but the packers are embedded in our soul. I bleed green and gold. It's everything to me. So I got to say two things just off of that. Greg first of all and I've said this before I'll say it again. I love the state of Wisconsin like. If I didn't live in Pennsylvania, I'd probably live in Wisconsin, let's start with the fact that how much they care about the badgers and packers which I love Ben. Let's get to their food groups okay beer. Ice Cream Braatz cheese is like these are my people, and they happen to be the nicest people the history of the world. It's crazy like I went to Madison one time. Greg was walking up and down state. Street I me like every other restaurant or store is an ice cream or a beer place, and then you get to the Student Union Joe on campus and Joseph, Penn State Guy. I Love Penn State Joe, but the Student Union at Wisconsin is on the water, and they sell beer and brought stare I would've gone to class exactly zero times my whole time in Wisconsin, if I'd been a badger while I'll say one thing. I asked you if you've ever been to Lambofield and you. You said not so. I'm going to have to take a guess I. Think Someday because experience at Lambofield is so fantastic. It was built right in the middle of the city, so there's homes all the way around Lambeau field, so you park in the backyard of people's homes. Yes, there is a parking lot there, but it only holds about twenty thousand people right now and so you're always parking and people's backyard. Everybody's tailgating together. It's such an experience, and then you can't get out after the game because the traffic is too much, so your refi you do it all over again. You stay for another two hours, so it's. It's a twelve hour day when you go to a packer game. I've never been lambofield. You know I don't know if you're. Going to I've never been I've never even been to Wisconsin. So this is, this is actually sounding really appealing, because frankly to me, places and things sound really fun right now. Sound really appealing a so. I need to get out to lamb boats. Some point Joe Ross made it sound in Wisconsin in the summer and the fall in. He hasn't been here in December January. Bad here. The only place I'd want to be in Wisconsin in December. January is lambeau because I feel like I would get the experience, but I really hate snow I. Hate it like I've lived in Pennsylvania New Jersey. My entire life to South Carolina and a couple of weeks, and if I never see another snowflake I'll, I'll be happy like I. Really Hate Snow so starmer sounds good in Wisconsin. You can have it in December, January. Though I'll tell you the best game ever at Lambofield is two thousand seven playoff game against Seattle. Seattle it was a game. They WANNA at home and it started snowing thirty two degrees, and it started snowing right before the start of the game, and it was just comfortable warm, and it was snowing. You felt like you're in a snow globe and far was fantastic that game. I think we want forty five to fourteen than lost to the giants the next week when the was below zero and Tom Coughlin's face got all frostbite, but that Seattle game it was like watching it in a snow globe was just heaven it was. So we're GONNA. Get into your thirty one years in fantasy industry, which is insane. Greg, and we're also GONNA get your best ball tips, and your high stakes tips momentarily, but you gotTA. Tell me I. I just got to ask you this. He signed his contract this week. It's four years fully guaranteed I. Need to know as a packers fan, your thoughts on them taking Jordan love in the first round draft I have to be honest with the is watching it that night and I went right into the bathroom. I thought I was going to throw up. I mean I am a packers fan. Through and through and I'll trust the management here. I think Goudie knows what he's Doin', but it's too early. I mean he signed for four more years. He wants to play at least forty, two forty three is gonNA be like Brady's not going to be able to walk away from it. It's like far. He kept saying he was going to retire. He couldn't walk away from it this. This is what they do and I thought it was too early. I mean this team isn't one player away from winning it all, but they haven't. We went to the NFC championship game, certainly a wide receiver, certainly linebacker Patrick Queen I thought if they were gonNA move up I. Mean Patrick, Queen, what about a perfect linebacker for them? I think it was premature now that being said. There are certain bloggers who really breakdown the tape, and if you watch some the love from two thousand, eighteen he makes throws light Patrick Mahomes. I hate to say that, but really some weird angles throw a strong arm than two thousand nineteen made really bad decisions is just very very bad interceptions. So I do think good is thanking less than a week ago from far to Rogers the law for forty five years, bears have gone through forty five quarterbacks and forty five years. This would be a great transition. Rogers is a play emotionally and he could take this the wrong way. He could take it the right way, but he could take it the wrong way to and. That's what I'm worried about, but. I didn't like the pick I really don't but I spoke for fifteen years from now talking about it and I'm wrong. So Greg. You now work for sports hub games network, right and I imagine you're going to give tips. Both for best ball and high stakes and Greg is the guy that gets us all hooked up with the free entries. Four best ball tends the ones that you guys are going to fancy points. Dot Com, using the code fees to try to enter Greg's one. That sets all that up. Up So. He's the man with the plan so I. Guess The question I is what is sports hub games network, and how are you both the best ball and a high stakes expert, or at least able to give tips on both? Yeah, that's a great question I mean. I started high stakes in two thousand and four I was working with a company called crazy publications, but here's what's happened, Ross. The government's gotten involved where they want to license everybody. And why do they want a license? Everybody because they saw fan Doolan draftkings taking every single ad on ESPN, two, thousand, sixteen, and the legislators, sitting home, or like holy cow. We're not getting any of that money. And they felt that every fantasy game operator was fan, Doolan draft kings, and they could take some money from them, so they started passing laws that we couldn't allow certain residents like Pennsylvania and New York unless we got licensed in those states now. We're not doing anything illegal or Being a legitimate company there's a federal law called you Ouija that was passed in two thousand and six, and you have to guarantee the prize as you have to do a whole lot of things we are following that, but all these states are now some money, grab and so game operators like my fantasy league dot com. They're called MFL tens dot com. You remember that this company was running them, but they had to get licensed in eighteen different states and a ten dollar product where you make five dollars on each league wasn't economical, and so they felt that they couldn't go any more. Our company was started in two thousand, seventeen by a guy by the name of Rob Fifty and he's in the hall famous as well. He's been in the industry since ninety four ninety five, and he felt it was time to put all pay to play games. Fantasy Games under one umbrella. You get one licensed, and now you do the high stakes you do. The best ball towns do season long. You do all of this, so we're kind of in a buying mode. Ross were trying to combine a lot of pay to play fantasy games under one umbrella so that we have to pay one stupid state license for all of our companies. Came about. God it okay that that makes sense. Joe Got something yet. Greg Still I wanNA bring it into the modern day here. You're obviously talking about the laws, but. Obviously we have stumped going on in this country right now. You might have heard about it. And the fantasy industry it's a it's a big time business. It's a customer service business, entertainment business, and our industry is completely. On these games being played, so could you talk about some of the challenges that you've had and I know this is a fantasy football podcast up, but with with the baseball contests at the MDC. with with the NFC. What are some of the the meetings in the contingencies in decisions that you've had made in the car in the current climate? Yeah, that's a good question. Joe and we run the national fancy. Baseball Championship is a high stakes baseball. We've done since two thousand four between all our high stakes. We've. We've given away over fifty four million dollars since two thousand, four and baseball. We are really the only game in town. We have a fantastic am a fifteen team league format. It's very difficult, and our guys are just so committed over the last sixteen years in baseball, going away twenty five million dollars, and we were having a record year. I mean site we fifteen thousand teams signed up in high stakes, and we were going to New York City to host the live events in Manhattan right across the street from Madison. Square Garden. Flew there March twelfth? They had the big. East tournament. It a halftime of one of the Games, and it was like apocalyptic people were just running everywhere to get taxis. Everything was being shut down. We had to shut down contests the day before the live events. We had contests at the Balaj you Las Vegas. We had to cancel them. We've canceled all of our contests that already had drafted because it's a sixty game season right now. It's just not fair. And we refunded three and a half million dollars, because we didn't think it was fair for the customers to play sixty game sees it when they felt they're gonNA play one hundred sixty two game season, so we are now revenue games and trying to get new revenue, but. It could be lethal for us. It really good right now. Football is red hot. We have never had sign ups like we have Right now in best ball tens on the national. Fantasy Football Championship. GonNa blow everything out. A, we could end up refunding everybody and what people don't realize. We have credit card fees. We still pay the licensing. They still charge us that. We have ten people working on this product full-time. We have salaries so. It's scary. It is very very scary for our whole industry and content could go under games could go under. It's scary right now, but we're moving forward and hoping that. Open our country and our government gets a little smarter. Greg well said. I shudder to think what could happen to a lot of different industries quite frankly media otherwise. We're no football, season. It's scary. The good news is on some level right now. At least there are some sporting events out there. There's NASCAR golf yesterday on the money podcast. We talked about betting on golf and you can do it.

You're not supposed to buy beer until you're twenty one There are some states now where you can buy. We don't believable I can do ten minutes on the disclaimer voice. Joe! I want to get back into fantasy I wanNA. Talk Great, you Kinda I'm kind of intrigued by the high stakes thing now. So, explain to me, the high stakes thing and what your tips are for people that are listening that might have that kind of disposable income. Yeah. Our high stakes is unbelievable I. Mean we started in two thousand and four, twelve hundred and fifty dollar entry fee and I just thought as joe is back at that time, a lot of companies are going with free. They wanted the names. They WANNA customers than he would sell advertising online or whatever, but there were starting to be a trend where people were tired of their locally. Because it came down to trading, some guy would make some weird trade in your local league. Your body would win the title that way and you're like. I'm sick of this you know, and so I started the national, Fancy Baseball Championship as a pay contest twelve hundred and And fifty dollar entry fee, but it was all live. You had to come to Las Vegas draft live. We did some in Chicago draft live. York draft live. We held simultaneous events, and the first year was a great idea. Hundred Thousand Dollar Grand Prize but people were skeptical, and we did not sell out, and I'm not kidding I never been more stressed in my life at work for a company that was an employee owned company, so not only was our company losing money, but people who I work with our employees. We're going to lose money on this. My wife worked there, so she was going to lose money on this thing, but we guaranteed the BREIDA's. Radio event. The contest was fantastic. In the next year. We sold it out. Every year since then we've sold out that contest and we've added more and more now. We've got a lot of online championships three hundred and fifty dollar entry fee when two hundred thousand dollars in football national fantasy football championship. Has Live events at the Bellagio in Las Vegas where at Manhattan at the Stewart, hotel and we have many different national contests. Two Hundred Thousand Dollar Grand Prize. Two Hundred Thousand Dollar Grand Prize one hundred thousand dollar Grand Prize, eighty thousand dollar grand price, so a lot of different formats, ten teams twelve team fourteen team. It's while Joe knows it's just wild and again fifteen twenty thousand teams one of our desk. The Platinum Twenty Thousand Dollar Entry Fee twelve teams under seventy thousand. Dollar League pride. Some people have more discretionary income than we do, but there are people out there who love the game have a little more income. Have confidence in themselves. They can put twenty down to win. One hundred, seventy thousand, and that's where this market is going right now and We have people from lawyers doctors to just normal people who just love to play. We have customers with their DADS. They bring their sons their contests. They're sitting there at their nine year old. They let him announce the picks it's. It's a fabulous. Greg, how do we win? How do we win one of the tips? Like what? What are the keys in the best ball draft? Well I'll give you the best ball if I knew the keys, the high-stakes I'd be on the other side of the table I'd be winning over there. Instead of running it I can't compete with our guys Joe knows these guys are serious and subscribe in a fantasy points dot com. They've been filing John. Hansen forever. That's what they. They do and so I can't get your point, sir, that's all as a fantastic game and there's different strategies for that best ball draft you set back and the computer picks ramp optimal lineup every year every week. So you have to take guys like maybe Sean Jackson. Who isn't a great player in starting every week, but he could go off one week and then get your zero the next week. Well, that's good. That's what you want, right? You know McCall. Is One of these guys I think can go off? I always liked Tariq Hill because he could go off one week, but then he doesn't have a lot of consistent points. Dominate Sirius. XM show yesterday. Who would you take? Will Your Jones or Tyreek hill both want right next to each other and season-long drafts? I'd take Khalil in season long every week. He just seems to get five six seven catches. You'll get your fifteen to twenty five points, but tyree could give thirty point game a forty point game. That's the type of strategy that Jews in best ball. That's different from season long Greg one of the things that NFC players have to navigate in some of your contests is the third round reversal and. People who aren't familiar with the I think A. Player people have been in the industry like I have for a while. are very familiar with the concept and where it came from, but third round reversal in your big time contests. Could you explain what that means to to the listeners who might just be hearing about the NFC in your contests? Third round reversal is for the customers of balances out all twelve draft picks so if you play fantasy football in two, thousand, five in two, thousand and six, you know that if you look at the number one pick, you took Ladainian Tomlinson. You were winning. Plain simple he was that dominant, and before him priest Holmes was like that Marshall Faulk was like that. It was the luck of the draw almost as much as anything else. And if you've got the first bit, you were GonNa. Do very well. And so we. We, were running a fourteen team contests at that point, and if you got picked thirteen or fourteen as soon as draft spots came up I got a phone call saying I'm done. I can't win. You can't win from thirteen and fourteen, so we're like. How can we balance the cell? So we had heard about third round reversal on we instituted in two thousand and seven. Basically what it does is go wonder fourteen in round one fourteen to one in round two and back to fourteen fourteen to one in round three. Over the last thirteen years, the number of league champions in our fourteen team and we use it in our twelve team, as well is consistent. It'll be three from this spot three, three, four two. It's unbelievable how that is bound stout, and we use it in basketball as well because there was a time when Lebron was the number one in our other guys, it balances out so twelve team league one to twelve twelve to one twelve to one then serpentine from that point on, and it really balances out every draft spot. That's interesting. I did not know a lot about that Greg. I'm glad Joe Asked you. That jaw got a question for you. While we're on with Greg, and that is, why are you not dominating these high stakes leaks? You know as much as anyone. The money up Joe and cash. Shane well I I first and foremost I'm actually doing a high stakes leagues a bunch of them this year I had a beat Joe Dolan. Last year with the NFC was with fantasy, free agents and also. I've been doing I've been doing the cut line I've been also doing the best ball championships and I think greg. Probably closer to the season will be getting involved in some of the some of the season, long kind of formats that have full waivers and setting your lineups and all that stuff, but. Ross I just got a fully admit like some of the high stakes. Guys in Greg knows this you can know as much as anybody about fantasy, but the high stakes guys, you have to be able to be willing a to execute what might be considered a ludicrous strategy, great and be very. Very confident in doing so and you have to not be able to be afraid to go against the grain, and you know one of the things that I used to really hate doing. When I get done with draft is posting I like to be transparent Rossio. See me I'll post. Best Ball results on my twitter all the time and One of the things you have to be able to withstand if you do that is everybody's GonNa. Tell your team sucks like you could have saquon Barkley George kiddle. Prime Jerry, rice, and and and Lamar Jackson on your team and somebody will tell you you're team sucks on twitter. And then you know, sometimes, people will say stuff like no. Those receivers are weak and you look at it. You're like yet. They kind of are, but you have to be confident in your strategy, and you have to be able to be competent. Saying look I know. My team looks different after a draft, but there's a reason I did this. There was a method to my madness, and I think the high stakes fires in Greg. You know this well. They're able to get over the mental block of executing a strategy, and maybe they can't put it into words perfectly. And maybe they're not interested in putting it into words the way I am. That's you know. I talk a lot I write a lot. That's what I do, but maybe they're not interested in that. They just WANNA play. I'm sure you see a lot of off-the-wall strategies. I'm sure zero R B was was popular in NFC formats before it ever made it to the mainstream. What can you tell us about that? In terms of in terms of both successful I stick slice. Sean Siegel. Who did that are event? Where he went us? First, four or five picks were all wide receivers at that point, it was tough for that three down back to be on many teams and PR was getting wide receivers at twenty, two twenty two points per game and running backs were really at sixteen to eighteen, so he loaded up with four wide receivers, and he does dominate in fact, not only do win are. Are Hundred and fifty thousand Grand Prize. At that time he took second as well he had multiple teams, and he just killed, and he was on road visit. He still is, and he talks about it, but at that time the wide receivers p P. are people just weren't catching on? They were getting three to four or five more points than the running backs at that point, so he loaded up again he gave. Here's the. The thing with high stakes you mentioned, Joe they're confident. These guys are gamblers. They're not afraid to take a chance on an injured guy who might come back or a second year wide receiver. Who they think is gonNA. Break out this year. I draft baseball on the buddy of mine named John Giles who's in our hall of fame I can't stand drafting with them or an auction. I Hate I hate every second of it. It and people know it because he takes chances all the time that I just can't do I'm more conservative as the draft or I really am. These guys are not afraid to bump guys up two rounds from their ADP, and they do that and when you say when you get to the live events throughout ADP's these guys are GonNa. Get the guys that they think are going to break out this year now greg. Follow up Ross. Civil last year in the NFC for sure, I think robust are be probably actually because there are so few major running back injury. The waiver wire was as barren all years. It's been just kind of the ebb and flow of fantasy. But one other thing that what you were talking about kind of stands out to me and I'm not really sure. This. This can apply to county. Just your season-long Leagues where you're playing twenty five bucks with your buddies, but. Is there any utility to finishing six in an NFC league? Like. Does anybody give you credit for that like it, so you're what you're basically saying is your players. The best players are not afraid to finish twelfth. Because they think that means they're. They have a better shot to finish I. They're not afraid to swing for the fences. Because occasionally they'll hit a home run correct, so we do keep lifetime standings, which is important to our guys. They WANNA finish. You know lifetime standings once. You've done in sixteen seventeen years. They don't worry about finishing last. They are taking their chances because they are going to try to win at all I. Mean Not only I in their league. They're hitting a home run for the overall titles that's playing for. We'll greg most importantly. We want to thank you for coming on the show. Your email and your background and you I mean you have been. A pioneer in the industry, which is why I said you are a legend, we are all very appreciative of the best ball. Tends I'm either going to take Robbie, Anderson or Shod Para me with my next big I really like Robin. Here's number shot. Perriman more than anybody out there I don't know I don't care I do so. I'm doing it I'm like I'm high stakes Bro. I'm like hi I'm going for the guys that other people don't Greg. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks for having me, and all that means that complement is I'm old. I've been around. Forty years, this industry is and I've been in thirty. One years I'm blessed them lucky and go back all. Thank you much. There is Greg Ambrosius. Make sure you check him out on twitter at Greg Ambrosius. What an awesome! Guy Joe and like I mean it must be for some for you. You must like whether it's John Hansen and brochures. You must love to like hear. These guys stories from back in the day like overtime. Oh, absolutely a lot of times. I'll Jon Hansen because I remember growing up watching football and and when I I was. I was born eighty six. So you know I grew up in the era of NFL prime time, and just like where these guys? We didn't have the access that we have. We didn't have red zone channel and we didn't. We didn't get the CDs guys play every week. So the highlights were were all we had, and I love talking to John Hansen about old days in fantasy. Oh, how good was Emmett? Smith, and how really good was jerry rice and some of the old calls they made but I love I love when Greg comes on, either the Sirius Xm radio show or or or the podcast. Because aren't the do much actually. Actually I can listen to them. Talk and Greg's great source on ADP as well like I love having them on a and talking to him about some of the recent trends because high stakes guys, they're ahead of the curve when it comes to the trend, so It's a good way to look we use. We use that at fantasy points. We use the NFC ADP because we think it's the best source of four ADP because you know. These are guys who are putting up real money, and they're the ones who should be moving the market so I love hearing him talk about eighty p because he starts to really understand Understand like what the trends are coming. Matter of fact, one thing I'm going to have to ask them here over email is. What's he seeing on Cam? Newton because I in his NFC contact because that was one of the big moves that happen this past weekend, so he's a great resource on all that stuff as well. I'm glad you brought that up, Joe. Before we we end today, show I. WanNa get your thoughts on Cam Newton at this point as as a fantasy. Layer. So I actually just took him as my second quarterback. Believe it or not Ross in an NFC best all draft champions for twenty five. Thousand Dollar Prize I took him as my second quarterbacks. I think two rounds after I took Josh Allen and then I handcuffed him with. Jared stood him because. Look I find it hard to believe that the Patriots are actually GonNa Sign Cam Newton, and then go with jared sin, but they paid cam nothing, if cans not healthy. If he doesn't take to the offense, they can just get rid of them. so I- handcuffed Jarret Stidham, but you have to acknowledge it raises the ceiling of the Patriot offense and the thing, I really like what it does is I think it helps the backfield big time. James White has been kind of a guy slipping through the cracks. We know you can catch sixty seventy eighty balls a year, but you wonder. Oh, God without. Tom Brady, what's going to happen well? Cam Newton is different player than Tom Brady. It goes without saying, but he's had years. Recent years were thrown the ball to Christian. McCaffrey he was very productive doing that so I think it opens up for James White I. Do not doubt at all that Josh mcdaniels and Bill Belichick have looked at the ravens offense, and although Cam Newton at this stage of his career, Lamar Jackson far different players especially obviously cam size. Size and running styles different than Lamar Jackson. I don't doubt some of that designed run. Stuff is going to find its way into the Patriots offense, so I'm very interested late in my draft adding Damian Harris the second year player out of Alabama who played only ten snaps last year, but he was a third round pick Andoni. Michelle's coming off yet. More knee problems and foot surgery this off season, so I'm really interested in adding him. I think it raises the ceiling for for Julian. Edelman and a raised ceiling for a big body receiver like Nikiel Harry Siasi the rookie tight end and one guy that I don't want people to ignore. Not Saying draft him in the Tenth Eleventh Twelfth around I, took him in like the twenty eighth round in best ball draft champions, but they have one receiver on their roster. Who can run in his name is demure bird He was with the Arizona Cardinals last year. Apparently, he's been A. he impressed them with its speed, and in whatever they'd seen from him in meetings Sochi can run and that can help with Cam Newton a big arm quarterback so I think it raises the ceiling of the entire offense and I like it because it adds more players to a player pool. I'm willing to draft. Kind of out on the Patriots in general. I love it. Very well said Joe. That's type of analysis. You get at fantasy points you use the code feast all caps you get all Joe's knowledge. You get Greg Cosell. Who will be on tomorrow's Ross? Tucker football, podcast, talking coincidentally or not about the quarterback run game quarterback centric run game, and you get to try to go against me and Joe in our next best ball.

Stras Delivers Again; Trent is Back

"You want it you need it it's what everyone's talking about the Kevin Sheehan show now here's Kevin the Crawford boxes and the nationals the ball game five to two here in the seventh inning that's how you respond to what happened yeah what happened hi fly ball left field setting brantley back onto the warning track at the wall looking up but it has gone down puts it into the has become a along with Rigaud in particular the best post-season clutch performer in DC sports history period I mean game seven and we have a game seven because Stephen Strasburg more than anything else had one of the all time great DC happened and by the way could is it possible that we will have a seven game series without one home win last night here clutch performances and by the way let me just say this upfront and I'm trying not to be overly reactionary not to to speak in hyperbole tonight the ultimate in sports is a game seven and the ultimate the ultimate is a game seven title this'll be the fourth time that will very active redskins day and by the way just a very redskins day overall yesterday so we will get to that as well but we have that's what you have in Stephen Strasburg now who has pitched four elimination do or Die Games and won all four of them in the postseason and in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight and then coming up big and winning on the Road One oh five to ninety nine for Washington's only NBA title that's the list and another little tip tidbit fun fact no Intel Aaron in the three major sports that play seven game series NBA Nhl major you and gross exaggeration. But I've lived here my entire life and I have some perspective on this I think I think Stephen Strasburg tonight was a brilliant performance one that will go down all time for him I don't know if it matches the game at Wrigley because statistically the line wasn't as good in game for a title was nineteen seventy eight and I remember this one the bullets on the road in Seattle in the seventh and deciding game of the NBA finals. I have had what happened last night and that is the road team winning for a sixth consecutive time incredible tonight twelve strikeouts no earned runs in that one but I think after the first inning last night his performance was incredible and we learned a lot about that first inning which we will into there's so much to get into from that game I did want to start with a couple of objects tidbits if you will gino that tonight seventh and decide engage in the world series against the pirates at Forbes field and lost that game all right nine to seven by the way iron I was looking up late last night that nine two seven game seven in nineteen twenty five to the pirates was played in two hours and thirty one minutes Aaron is here no guest today we're doing all nats and then we're going to do some Redskins B.'s yesterday leading into game six last night it was a would it be a seven game without a home winter it could be we're GONNA preview the game but we had a lot to talk about in terms of a recap of game six I quick mention twelve innings you remember that one everybody Griffith Stadium Nineteen twenty four the following year the next year in one thousand nine twenty five this senators went to a seventh and deciding play a seventh game freight championship right one thousand nine hundred twenty four the Senators with Walter Johnson one game seven of the world series over the New York giants four to three in League baseball there have been since they started doing this one thousand four hundred sixty seven game series in those three sports none of them we have an APP now if you'd like to download our APP and listen to us that way you can do that The the APP store on your iphone or the Google store engaged for a world championship will be just the fourth time in DC sports history that any of its major pro sports teams will participate and you just didn't have and by the way that's a Lotta runs units a lot of offense of a lot of at bats two hours and thirty one minutes then the other seventh in decide seven strikeouts with the two earned runs coming in the first inning which by the way he told everybody afterwards he was tipping his pitches I had Ray Knight on the show earlier that a fastball was not coming so they knew they could eliminate the fast ball when they saw him working his hand in his glove to get he did it again you know he pitched last night into the ninth inning and a game six down three three games to two any allowed two earned runs five hits up in his glove ready for either the change up or the curve and that extra time spent in his glove was a tip Eh. There's just a lot to go through but I'M GONNA start with my five takeaways and Aaron you jump in whenever you want my number one takeaway from last night at Strasbourg we're on your android race and review us on that APP that will help a lot and if you have any issues with it just tweet me at Kevin Sheehan DC I to me On the Radio Show Ray Knight Essentially said what he was doing is that when he wasn't throwing a fastball he was getting his the right grip to throw the curve or changeup and that was the tip apparently Strasbourg and he said he's been guilty of doing this in the past not intentionally obviously and at the end of the first inning Palmetto heart the pitching coach said took him aside and said you're tipping your pitches and then after that back and watch that first inning tipping or no tipping he was two dead center in the strike zone he was missing yeah he missed a little bit too Rothberg went to shuffling his hand in his glove and so on every pitch so that there was no tip now interestingly tonight points when a fastball was coming they smacked it springer doubled to deep left you know on the first pitch fastball Bregman homered off of it it to the left it would have been another home run so Strasbourg ended up after that first inning where he was tipping pitches and by the way I would also add because I want later the most underrated moment but argued the yes the single most important moment was the bottom of the fifth inning runners on second and third one out without a fastball and then Gurriel hit a first pitch fastball that nearly went out of the park or I went to the deepest part of the warning track if it had been a little bit I early to ground into the shift to end the inning I totally agree with you that fifth inning was the crucial portion of the game and it was the last skies in their line-up it is a chance for Houston to break the game open in the fifth inning right you have at that point it is a we've mentioned that a few times meantime you know what was really fascinating about this Strasbourg start last night was all of the bullpen activity that's not an exaggeration he's the first pitcher to ever win five games with no losses in the postseason I ever he's got the second best this out what they were waiting for last night is they were waiting for a fastball and when he was in there getting a grip for the curve of change up they knew a fastball was coming and Ra for any starting pitcher that's at least five starts minimum in the history of the live ball era behind Sandy Koufax or an analogous to his sixth inning in game two now the fifth inning rettig gets on with a single which by the way shocker in this series plus he was behind in the count get ALTOONA ALTOONA and he strikes out on three pitches huge and by the way the third pitch strikeout pitch the swing and Miss Pitch the bullpen and I kept tweeting last night Aaron Davey big boys got it you pitch him until he's frigging arm falls off it's a three two game because in the previous top half of the inning that was when eaten when deep in Soda went deep and so you get springer to double what what are you looking at his pitch count is low he's kill in these these guys they got no answer for him you know and even when it out who knows but when Sherzer got up in the bullpen I think there was a I think everybody was completely shocked what is Max William and got through a couple of really key portions I say key portions with everything that happens later and we will get to every get a little bit of a threat you know Bregman beat out that throw by Rendong a in the sixth inning by the way there is great defense behind Strasbourg the entire all right so red Exxon and then springer did it again a double off a Strasbourg rettig it's held up at third and you got to runners on and nobody out tonight Rendong was great Turner was Great Cabrera was great they all had great players all night long but Bregman gets on the sixth gets on in the sixth three straight outs cheers are doing up in the bullpen. Here's your starter tomorrow night first of all secondly why is anybody up in the bullpen anybody who've and Brantley do up out to he gets strikeout swing and then he got Brantley de groundout that was the game right there no doubt about it it was very similar uh-huh Corbin Hudson and then sure Zor which we will get to in a moment because I think I figured out why Sherzer was up but anyway you know Corbin's up and is a curve ball that breaks so hard it ends up in the dirt now to jumps out of his out of his out of his pants trying to swing at that thing then he gets brand oh okay so thank God they got two runs in the top of the seventh in Strasbourg had a no stress low stress seventh-inning in fact it was an eleven then Max Scherzer which was the stunner of the night easy seventh for Strasbourg eleven pitches one-two-three easy breezy inning with Shergar up in h. seventh-inning followed by a five pitch eighth inning are they one two three five pitch eighth inning that was another that was another exam you know in that spot all right and then comes the two key gets of the night one out excuse me too key gets tonight it's too and Brantley two of the most dangerous in Strasbourg pitches a complete game which would have only been his third complete game of his career I think you're probably right there relation that he was ma- he was going to be used for if they got to it he would not elaborate on I was having this conversation with Ray Knight and with Mark Zuckerberg and earlier well I think of in recent games a couple out to in particular impatient at the plate you would've thought they would've tried to get lost you know to ground balls that were close to double plays than a strike out of Korea to end it and meantime you've got you've got pictures up corden Hudson and and I think I figured it out I said earlier in the show in both of them agreed agreed with me it was really simple it was in the seventh inning ninth by the way in my personal opinion I don't think he gets yanked if it's five to two I think the fact that they got two more runs in the top of the ninth on the Liam then potentially Bregman Sing Strasbourg in the seventh and a three two game with runner or two on and I think that's what it was I would not have been in favor of that at all ast meaningful threat for Houston in the game and it was snuffed out by the guy who's become the best big game pitcher in the sport okay whatever path you want to this moment but it is funny you know looking at this performance this is the performance going back to two thousand ten there you know while they rip that in the seventh they were thinking you know it could be a three two lead and it's the bottom of the order and if somebody gets on in the bottom of the his which is one of the reasons he is so great yet the whole bringing it back to the shutdown in two thousand twelve before the postseason Brendan to run RBI double I think that the seven to two made it so that they just said whether it was Davy managing from the clubhouse Strasbourg was going out there with potentially a three two lead because you didn't know that when when Sherzer was up in the seventh ended the six beginning of the seventh you didn't know he was ashraful it was you know you heard it in the post game interview I think it was Rosenthal he tried to somehow bring it back to the two thousand twelve shutdown and and it's proper rest up the everything needed to be perfect for this guy but all this guy has done is in every elimination game for this franchise in Elimination Games and now five in this postseason alone the first pitcher to ever do it I think when I said yesterday that I liked it angered bats altuve eight three pitches than he grounded out it was one PITCHESR Brantley one pitch two Bregman inning over then you know Strasbourg comes out and here in a moment but it is interesting the Justin verlander now Owen six in the world series and by the way last night five innings three earned runs on five hits walked three but I start this is what we were expecting yeah except a much deeper array of pitches he's got four go to he's gone out and pitched phenomenally phenomenally well or you had game five in Wrigley two years ago you had him out of the bullpen in a wildcard game this after you know whether it's cheering us or rettig then we may come with shirts or to face the top of the order that we don't want springer out to and brand we struck out three you know some people I think we're wondering why he got pulled weighed just giving up the two home runs and the lead you know in the in the fifth to eaten in Soda Watch now maybe the narrative on him all along was wrong but we know that there were days where it was too cold or he hadn't gotten the through chip hale whatever it was at that point they decided all right you're going to face the right hander in Gary L. and then we're going to bring doolittle into get Alvarez but I think if it had been five to Erin ear you had him in game five against the dodgers pitcher great this year he has been awesome four no look the transformation the evolution of this guy's in terms of his mental toughness has been fascinating five preceding losses weren't terrible starts he's owing six in the world series and last night he wasn't great and the the but you know he had settled in from that first-inning but he only had three strikeouts which was tell it's the fewest strikeouts he's had an a game all year long no chance you would have given bligh answers to that post game but the fact that he felt comfortable enough to go out and just offer the fact that came out and said that is incredible and now as it turned out not a real issue unless something happens tonight and we come back and say oh no doolittle shouldn't have pitched to those matters but it was that people have been trying to do during this run and haven't quite been able to do because really there is no direct correlation there it's it's hard to say you know you can make the nats and it was simply for this reason I just thought Strasbourg without pitch ver- lander and he did in the game came down to a lot more than just that which we're GonNa get you after each start he would give you very basic answers he wouldn't delve into things but this season he's really started to own that he started accept it you know it's tough so I honestly I would have kept him out there anyways no matter what the situation I thought he deserved it if nothing else and obviously he was still looking good to add to his legacy Louisa Lock Hall of Famer he's achieved almost everything they didn't even the sport you know but Justin verlander in this world series even though some of those overpowering dude even though he's a big dude at six four you know and he's got a presence on the mound but just this ice water in his veins opponent the opposing pitcher completely outpitched him he he devil it wasn't just that he was he was missing pitches you is hanging pitches he was not looking good early there's something about his his way of doing it that I really enjoy like he has turned himself totally around in terms of the an hinch came hinch came in in the sixth and brought into for lander out and that was it for him and the opportunity for Justin verlander I just love Stephen Strasburg and and I'm I'm serious about this if you think about the all time clutch postseason performers in DC sports history did settled down in the second third innings a little bit but there were a lot of where he was just missing wasn't looking good going back to what you were saying about Strasbourg one of the more fascinating things not just I'm dancing in the dugout after that home run there is a time really before this year there is no way he would have offered up about the tip of the pitches it wouldn't have happened communities for big game performance you know when Ovechkin 's playoff statistics were never as bad as sort of the perception of him not getting it done but who is become as a pitcher but also who's become off the field has been so fascinating this season he was always one of those guys going into really coming into this season who means you know Sherzer is a is a great pitcher he is a phenomenal you know he's a lock hall of Fame Pitcher in the future there's people perceive him but but in terms of his pitching you know he's just gotten better he's added more pitches he is smarter he isn't he's not just this listen I wouldn't say standoffish with the media wasn't like Anthony Rendell shy he was devil he didn't really relish the spotlight he didn't love the negative to do interviews he's at the top of the list with John Riggins he is I mean the caps had nothing but jokers for years I know they won the Stanley Cup and they had a lot of think of the teams in town and who my favorite player is Tommy said to me the other day in the pocket you really like Strasbourg and I'm like yeah I do he can go one hundred and twenty-five if you need him tonight because his next pitching performance is GonNa be in the spring although maybe it could be tonight I was GonNa say who knows one of those things where it's been overall transformation for them from top to bottom I love him I love Stephen Strasburg team he's right now I'm just trying to the eastern conference back then they're the defending champions the scores tied with twenty seconds to go in the game they get in the huddle and it's a famous story the if you go back and you look at all the game sevens that they lost he wasn't great and a lot of those games sevens didn't come through in a lot of those game sevens wizards Bobby Dandridge was a massive postseason clutch performer I'm had one of the all-time clutch performances in a seventh and deciding game of the Eastern Conference finals against it's not discount that at a a you know in in terms of his first ending up performance after that he went seven and a third allowed three hits no earned runs and was br a calm in a cerebral approach and an ice water in his veins kind of competitiveness that isn't outward he pitched a gem any outpitched Justin verlander and he's a big reason why the nats are gonNA play for a world title tonight there were other Ariggo had the all time postseason run but we may be seeing number two if not a one day and that is what Strasberg's San Antonio in nineteen seventy nine so clutch that Dick Motta who is the coach at the time Erin they're in a seventh and deciding game against the spurs were Bobby Dandridge got to a spot little twelve footer baseline buried it they were onto the NBA finals he was a super clutch ice water in his veins performer. You kidding me game six in the world series and he goes three for four with a home run and five RBI's in the home run retold by everybody that was in that Huddle Dick Motta says nothing for the first minute fifty of the time out and then with ten seconds left to go before the horns gonNA sound and they're going to here here's your verdict and he goes deep to run shot and it's five to two by the way pay him now he it's a blank check will suck if he ends up somewhere else as by the way potentially the defending champion next year here's his night though because it was a huge night and I'm came after the Trade Turner Controversy with you know all hell breaking loose around him and he basically said enough let me end this debate right reasons though reason number two is Anthony Rendon three for four a home run five rb is are you most of the time we've seen it a couple of times we saw it in the sixth inning of game two when he didn't get the call on that could have gotten out of that inning I think against Korea the third inning ten pitchers bat against overlander where he fell off five fastballs before finally drawing a walk that wasn't just about the home run first inning he goes into the gap on this shift against the shift with an RBI single to get him up one to nothing in the top of the first rigaud obviously you know Rigaud put it on me I'm going to carry it to the Super Bowl and he did Strasberg's five zero in this postseason he is four no now in elimination games as a starting pitcher for the Washington nationals and last night in the world series down three games to two adver landers pitch count up and ultimately really was part and parcel to ver- lander getting pulled after the fifth with ninety three pitches that was an incredible at back out there they just said he just said to the entire team he said just get it to bobby and bobby just went for us that was the play and I think Fox did a terrible job in the in the seventh inning during that controversy but Rendong takes Harris's second pitch deep it didn't total that the fifth inning which was his only out in the entire game he just missed the Verte Lander slider and flew out to right then in the seventh three different pitchers cutter curve fastball and his walk against Verlinden and the third was epic he's so good he's GonNa cash vp and it's it's been incredible to watch he is any any does it with such cool and calm in a heartbeat and a that is still in flight he becomes the youngest player in world series history to have three home runs in the world series and by the way prior to that after all the controversy the trae Turner play which we will get to Davies been tossed by the way nobody really knows what the hell just happened because in part and I'm going to get to this so did you hear what Sherzer told Zuckerman and others after the game I didn't hear what she said about Sherzer Sherzer said there was a specific city going back to when he was drafted I did that for Strasbourg that's exactly what these precision hitter who can put the ball exactly where he wanted. This was really the disciplined Scott. Boris has to be just thrilled about the results this post-season red Donan Strauss in Strasbourg just pay him because it watch night for Rangoon by the way on defense to he was outstanding all night long and his three hits and last night's game and this is why he so valuable three one fastball the one that the pitch that made it three in one that Verlinden was upset about that looked like it may have caught that top part erase what had just happened because if Turner were on base it would have been a three run shot in the lead would have been six to not five to two but what a shot would doing and maybe it would then he ran and won soda or doing too we'll get to them in a moment but Strasbourg really you know the the the bullets slash you're welcome if you're showing a highlight video of WHO's Anthony Randolph and you're showing as a hitter you're showing them this game and it was you know as you said you could be going somewhere else in the world series and so big please let it be here Rendong is sort of the second big takeaway from the game last night you got anything to add to rent down I mean we'll get into in great detail today what a game six and we have a game seven that was Dave Jaguar on the call for nationals radio I'm here aim six have to have it he's facing Justin verlander any didn't just deliver he hit a three one blast off a Burland is one Sodo I'm the home run that gave the nets the lead in the fifth was what we've seen throughout the postseason a pressure situation it's a two game it's the fifth inning game the next god-knows-how-long every young fan is going to love one Soto and he I heard a comparison yesterday that I think is dead on he's own was you know exactly who he's been being able to just force that ball going back to the first thing that just kind of pushed that ball through the shit if they're that's exactly what again and I know you could sense that Verne Verne ver- landers like you don't tell me what that is young buck he gave that huge shuffle in the bog l. let's get flashing a smile you'd rather I think that even the old old school people would rather see that than see Bregman get hitting the ear hole which is what the other response would have been there you were talking mm Jesse you know you know who was not happy about Bregman with Strasbourg not happy to he called it tired and Davey wasn't And then he hit that bomb and then by the way he carried his back down to I like Bregman did with his bottom of the first home run which was Bush league new outside veteran like he's a guy you've got as a very young age you're going to see develop and a guy who brought a different type of energy to the team than we had in before and who's also who just happens to be quite possibly the best player on the team as well and clearly yes he's got that superstar them right now pulse rate that is you know less than forty five I was gonna say like what what what Paul what heart rate he he's just he's a robot out there the third takeaway from last night the strike zone it was close so goes nope that's a ball basically looked right at at at at cheer notes and back at Verlinden no that's a ball but whatever I don't really have much with it not a well it is now old school baseball whatever it's it's not especially when you're you just by the way that was a seven pitch at bat but here's what I thought was one of the real important at bats of the game we talked about Strasberg's key get on to a and Brantley how how Strasberg's Farnell favorite guy and maybe your favorite guy and DC sports right now I think it's one set of wants soda is going to be the new face of DC sports I saw Bregman do it and it was just Kinda cool so I thought I would do takeaway number four Adam Eaton okay that is a huge homerun happy about it. Aj hinch was not happy about it either instead that he was GonNa talk to Bregman afterwards but I loved Sodas answer as to why he did it so said and I'm paraphrasing on the headset you think this play is under review and that's essentially the way they described it well guess what a judgment call is not a reviewable play they didn't tell us that until the bottom of the seventh that's a big mess in the moments but back to the former if you're John smoltz and I actually liked smoltz I think he's pretty all of the shenanigans that happened after the play were completely confusing in the moment for probably ninety percent of the audience and again Adam Eaton has been sensational in this world series lastly you know is the Turner play and so much waffling and that seventh inning and they appeared to be confused which they were and then by the way when we come back from the commercial who has to run out to catch a dribbler that goes left or right he has to have a clear throwing lane to the first flying off but the bottom line is it's a judgment call and it's not reviewable and it's also not a call that you can protest a game over and us is it the right call or the wrong call they never did all right buck in smoltz there explaining it they never mentioned that it wasn't a reviewable first of all let me start with this when you are a big time analyst on a big game John Smoltz you gotTa make a call on that you got to tell me in the moment there are a couple of things but the bottom line is it is a judgment call the judgment by the home unpire said to me this morning he said look here's the bottom line it's a terrible rule because the only reason that the rule is in place is for a catcher good I think you learn a lot you when you're in a spot like that and you got a controversial play you gotta tell us did they get it right or get it wrong and there was way in that top in when it happened in the seventh inning which is a big miss a big miss because when you see the umpires over there you can spend as much time as you'd like on it I spent probably too much time on it this morning here's the bottom line okay in this is what was frustrating Jason any other player third base shortstop second base is going to have the clear lane to throw to the pitcher which the third baseman had any made a bad throw appeal play so you gotta work your way back left-handers no problem you can start in foul territory and stay there on your sprint rain night there was that there was runner interference by Trai Turner and there's no doubt that when you watch the play Turner spends ninety five percent of his sprint to I they buried the lead Dedi had been thrown out during the commercial we didn't get that for a minute and a half or two minutes and what we got initially was hey by the space well left of the line now any right hander and I played baseball okay so I actually played through high. JV Baseball in high school if you're right hander and you hit a shot to the left part of the Infield it takes you into the hey this is not a reviewable call we should've gotten that in the moment and when they came back and said he's out we thought it had been replayed so the and eaten homers in the fifth to tie the game that was massive but just how `Bout Atta meeting in this world series he's now seven of twenty-one with bottom line was that there was according to Joe Torry afterwards there was an understanding before this world series started that the man the rule correctly not the call but the rule which is what Davey asked for he got they came back and they signaled he's out managers could ask in a judgment call situation for them to look at it on replay to make sure that they interpreted which is why there ended up being contact with the glove and Gurria lost the glove which by the way he's what really I think got Holbrook's attention is that the glove came okay which made you believe in the moment they in reviewed it right and that the call on the field was up held but really what they were doing four R. B. Highs and two home runs in the game last night he was one for two with that home run and rbi he walked any got hit by a pitch got thrown out and I'll get to that in a moment but ultimately you know it's a judgment call not protest able not reviewable it's was they were interpreting the rule because Davey asked him to interpret the rule it was a judgment call Davey Nuit and David and lost his mind again obviously it was a terrible and yes by the extreme letter of the law they have the right to call that however that's a play in law and when I say you I don't mean you I mean the general population that that it was correct but it was not the correct call it was not a call that Umpires ever lifetime I've seen a thousand times maybe more and I don't think I've ever seen that call made its call they can make but you don't do it it's like the neighborhood play at second base yes sometimes you don't technically touch second but you just give it to him anyways you don't make that call you don't make that call there you can say all you want about by the letter of the one hundred percents you go back from third to second you know on on the on the bad throw yes set allowed him to answer base but they didn't throw the ball the second right again no anyway they come back and they they they give you the you know he's out as if they've just upheld the mauling on the on the field you gotta give us something so Davey gets tossed which was the other aspect of this and you know if you take it chronologically he gets hated situation in that everybody needed time. If I've been calling the game I am not a you know a deep into the rule book guy you know now empires to check on their interpretation of the rules which is what Davey asked for and got so then after you know in your five minute delay which by the way they're apparently you know the Korea pitch before his two run homer when Joe Ross had him struck out right I think it just built up and by the way I loved it because to me and I felt it in the moment I felt that this was not just about that call but it was about this over five games and he lost it and personally I'm sitting there and I was on twitter last night I don't get the reaction of your bad rule there in by the way Aaron here's the other thing about that rule why does Gomez have to go back to I that yeah that's the other completely lobby on second base yes I'm wondering what additional thing happened to set them off for the second time chip hails out there trying to hold them back Davey lost his mind you the interpretation of the rule not the call itself but this was again Tory said managers were told that in the case of judgement calls they can ask them ever make yeah no I'm not saying they got it right I'm just saying that it's a judgment call would be reviewed and couldn't couldn't protest a game over by the Ken Rosenthal were outstanding Verduci in particular with very good because he had the whole thing figured out at that point and look I understand that it was accomplished you know pitch by pitch you knew exactly would Dave Martinez was going through in that spot he was he had he had had it with the bad calls he's got that upset and got tossed out to me that is the reaction more often than not of noncompetitive people right if you are living this series Sunday night mentioned that yesterday so I loved it he got tossed by the way almost everybody will tell you that he's managing that game from in you know trying to get the injury information or get an explanation on a controversy or call but I I thought that if you're calling a game and you're the key analyst and there's a contract through the first five games and he wasn't GonNa let his team gets screwed in game six and by the way I think you should have done that in the rogue lace at bat on back I mean I haven't seen that from Dave Martinez but anyway it was an incredible game there were other portions of it very upset by the call at first at the beginning of the whole sequence gets very upset and then he gets them to go review what's the point of Doug our reporters what's the point sideline reporters and stuff we saw what they can do in this case yeah in that particular case that's true and you know in football it's always with with baseball I I wouldn't have had really much of a clue or much of an instinct football and basketball much more but still in a small she gotta give something there awesome communication issues and by the way during that delay did you see trae Turner in the Dugout Oh my God screaming there's Tori the go ask him he's right there series that the frustration of robe lace being punched out in game five on a clear ball that was outside and high and he should have been on first base to the I think that's it I think that's basically it on the game I'm now we get to tonight we get to tonight and we get you know obviously Max Scherzer with the quarter zone what else did I have just looking through my notes the defense behind Strauss was great it to me raw place in particular is struggling a lot I thought we might get mad atoms to pinch hit for him in the ninth When it was still and so more likely than not I would guess we're gonNA see Max Scherzer healthy tonight you know that cortisone effect can can be days side the bowels of that club's okay he's he's making the calls they got TV's down there they got cable but anyway I my to clear up SCIATICA clear up a disk herniation pain nerve pain and also I've had that in my hand and in my elbow be yes you call you gotta weigh in at some point you gotta look at it for ways to Sunday and then you've got to say you know what they got it wrong or they got it right which isn't what happened but I agree with you Virginia Verduci when they came back the review which is what I'm thinking and I think most of you are thinking Davey knew that it wasn't that but then went off again and service for small businesses you know if you are making multiple trips or you've got people making multiple trips to the post office every day and it's costing please do it Mike Goldsmith is one of the better surgeons one of the better orthopedic guys in town and he's done my lower back operation twice the other thing real quick about Smoltz I agree with you small struck the ball that actually the people who I thought did a really good job if anyone did a good job I thought Verduci Rosengard Uchi happened with the redskins right after we make a prediction on this game right after I tell you about stamps dot com art stamps dot com is the

com handles it all with ease simply use your computer to print official US postage we really don't get too many of them but yesterday with the trade deadline and with all of the Redskins News we had essentially you know an afternoon full of so there you go you know this has been implied this has been discussed this has been debated we have known got thrown out in that spot you know I understand you're upset but you got you got you keep your cool there it's the world series it's it's not right that Dave Martine running back related and it was the report from less carpenter yesterday of the post about Dwayne Haskins sure how many of you caught this or not but he was a very interesting report from less carpenter the quote of his offense Bill Callahan's version of the offense we've known this for a while which is why essentially he's pretty much the only rookie started first game on Sunday. Here's the money quote from the story quote multiple people with knowledge of Haskins development a year when the post office is extra busy with people sending gifts and cards et Cetera. That's why you need stamps dot com anything you can do at the post office you can do at St he is what the story is in by the way could he start on Sunday yes case keenum remains in concussion protocol and can't play there's a possibility that Dwayne haskins could skins news and reports and reactions and by the way social media going nuts and redskin nation and then quiets down just in time for game six and then a quarterback that hasn't played football this year or hasn't started a game it seems like pretty much anybody that's had opportunities or by the way another one's going to start this about haskins yet we haven't seen play we haven't seen him coached well okay I was not a fan of haskins coming out in the draft said Haskins is struggling to learn the teams plays and they express surprise that he doesn't know them yet story on Dwayne Haskins in the post which is titled Dwayne Haskins could start on Sunday but questions remain about how ready he is it's really about how ready four hours a day seven days a week for any letter any package any class of male anywhere you want to send it wants your mail is ready you just hand it to your mail carrier or drop it off in a male more ready but I wasn't sure about him I did like Ryan Finley in particular Andrew Lock those are the guys like by the way the redskins football people I know me he was not a first round guy you know that was a contrarian view but to me I watched every single Ohio state game had no idea whether or not the Red Sea remember I think it was two thousand twelve we kept hearing about Ryan Zimmerman getting this cortisone shots like that was a big thing to the season he started off really slowly ticky started it's no doubt now right that he was overdrafted I think that that ship has sailed in terms of that debate he was overdrafted okay he when you which is more a pro style system at NC state but anyway here's the the bottom line with this he may have been the wrong pick I know I love Sean doolittle he's just saying man we get chip Hale in the weight room debut was tossing around like he was trying to get one shoe in Jacksonville we've known that there's been a bit of an issue some of you by the way in a sent this to me and said well you were right about Haskins I am not right did you see Ryan Finley is going to start an angles this weekend but we've seen rookie quarterback's all over the globe all over the league this year starting including guys like sixth rounders like Gardner but here's the thing with this story with all of the conversation about Dwayne Haskins this is a coaching issue too because he season and you're hearing things that he's a long term project he's got a long way to go you overdrafted period and we know starts up all starts up altogether again so I wanna start with something that is not trade deadline or Trent Williams to a future of nowhere you have to figure out a way to get him on the field in coach them up and get him comfortable again I've used this example a million times knowing what kind of offense will work that he's comfortable with he got him comfortable he's got an arm he's got feel for the in the pocket he's got size you've got to create situation for Haskins where he can get on the field and you can do that as a head coach is an organisation if you make it a priority least one person that really liked drew lock and I know of at least one person in their organization that really thought Ryan Finley had a chance to be good quarterback as well coming out of that system you have a shitty team one in seven and case keenum is the guy playing in front of you and you can't get on the field and your but he's a long term project you know and we need people that we can draft that can help us now because oh by the way we're close we're close wile Dwayne Haskins was struggling to learn the place to call the plays to get comfortable in the team's offense J. Gruden's I know it's not apples to apples with what the redskins her with what I would ask the Redskins to do but he he looked at a couple of pictures clap three times in through fifty touchdowns which they should be at one seven and having drafted him at number fifteen and with case keenum and Colt McCoy had of him right to pads to nowhere first or second which is what I think by the way the redskins football people thought they thought you know he's a good talent he's got some big time upside coach they got to create a situation where isn't so complex because you know who else had problems with this offense last year Alex Smith and he's been I would have a chance to draft him and I just said there are other guys I like more to me in Cuyler Murray was incredibly intriguing to me Daniel Jones let's get to the redskins news of yesterday because there was a lot of it it was really one of those days Aaron you know in sports in the city we don't get a lot of them the Truth Matters Hey coaching issue as it is a player issue all right is it possible that they totally blew it with this draft choice absolutely is in that season I think you're limited to how many of those you can get during the course of a year I think it's limited but I don't know if it's six feel like we were hearing about them getting one hi state he had exceptional skill position talent I understand that I understand through a lot of passes sideways and backwards but that's Urban Meyer coaching you know I tweeted out yesterday Erin number seventeen go deep everybody else do your best to get open onto break Avi that you know according to various reports that there were several teams that didn't have any better than a third round great on him and a lot of teams probably felt he was more like mentors in the organization and this is the concern I have they don't have them he would have been much better off going to another team with smart I don't get this at all and by the way these reports coming out typical redskins right you know quotes anonymous multiple people not that hard right this is not rocket science I understand it's more complex and more complicated than most of us know Cooley had the best idea lot of people need to learn differently a lot of people need to be taught how to be a professional you know that takes leadership it and we know from Jay Gruden's offense a lot of people say it's way too long in verbiage it's way too complicated simplify it is two games but once we got this you know five to two I think they were just thinking about his defense in particular it's throwing hot on every play that you're going to throw the ball on what does that mean that means that it's a one reveal you know the pressure's coming from and you throw it to the knowledge of Haskins Development said Haskins his struggling to learn the teams plays and they expressed surprise that he doesn't know them yet you know this is the stuff that is it is in my view it's more likely than not that they did blow it with this draft choice but you're not going to know it until you coach in the league forever he wasn't comfortable with it get him comfortable in get him on the field this is as much to his level until you give him a chance to get on the field comfortable because right now he can't even call the play other people that could have really given him a chance anyway that's enough about him how about the rest of the stuff that happened yesterday first named just Cleveland and that was problematic because for the redskins it meant less leverage in trying to Trent Williams there were more teams interested race they've already proved US wrong with their performances against Minnesota in San Francisco I mean laugh as hard as you want right now but that's what they think bad for him I've heard he's a good kid alright maybe he just needs to learn how to learn the the bottom line is they were in better position to make a really good deal for their team when more than one team was interested and he with the Laremy Tunsil trade when New England you know had Isaiah win who was injured and was struggling and they were looking for a left tackle Denver this shared goals is a disaster when they still potentially thought they were going to have a season Cleveland before they lost New England to fall the two and five you tell him not to worry about reading defenses not worry about calling out Mike's or shifting or changing protections you put them in the shotgun and again it goes back to my sense that they believe they're on the verge of proving everybody wrong here in the second half of the season Tae really do they think in many but one of those years I just googled Ryan Zimmerman cortisone shot and he had a third one in June so this this twenty one Adrian Peterson they didn't trade anybody that's going to be a free agent next year that they don't have signed they didn't trade anybody okay and I told you yesterday that my gut feel was that nothing was going to happen the Trent Williams Trade situation here over the last forty eight hours first of all I learned that the market for Trent Williams became true to me because I do believe that this smugness this arrogance that Bruce L. and the organization carries themselves with is on a trade for months and now nobody wants to bail them out close quote that when I read that yesterday that rung so earlier in the season and even before the season then there were over the last week the time to pounce on something was when Houston hadn't solved their problem folate start with this they didn't make any traits intrigue Trent Williams they didn't trade Josh Norman they didn't Trade Ryan Kerrigan they didn't trade they're really really upset they didn't get the result that they didn't get the win in both of those games they felt like they earned it they felt like they were really close now I learned something about hot receiver and that's all you have to do and on the other possession on the other plays from the shotgun you hand the ball to number twenty six offputting to everybody in the league and so when you combine as I've said before arrogance smugness with simple small-minded mindedness your Saturday the quote the one quote that stands out talking with league sources on possible Trent Williams move the redskins wouldn't take calls Ashley that's an oversimplification some of you were thinking that that that's really what I thought they should do the point is they've got to simplify it they got a code you don't know what you're going to get at that point remember this is a team that scored three runs in three games over the weekend at home and it's two one you're not sure what you're going to get from them Oh call me we're not trading Trent Williams you know it's not happening and then you get to the point where you realize Oh shit just not gonna make a put yourself into a position to make good deals you know when when the people are calling in you're essentially saying over the last couple of weeks it's just been Cleveland there was also something else about this and this one came from J. P. Finley Finley JP tweeted out yet we could really use something back for Trent Williams he really doesn't ever want to play for us well you know you've limited your marketplace first of all and then you've blown them off so many times in now all the sudden they don't want to bail you out okay makes sense to me now did they totally miss out on a Trent Williams blocked buster deals bad guy in this situation I am not discounting that as a possibility all I'm saying is that at some point you gotta think about winning games and this was not a revenge it doesn't help them win games but it makes them feel better now I'm GonNa say this as I've said many times I doing like he's been wronged which he may have been the organization may have been wronged by Trent Williams Trent Williams really may have been the total order this Trent Williams situation you know this is the way they operate this is bruce to a T. right this is you know again him it's not what Bruce thanks obviously but remember this he's going to be a year older next year and potentially hill only have one year left why they did not want to let him get away with getting traded and moving onto another place in getting a new deal you know they may have total justification greedy fool felt good to them you know leaking information on what a drunk Scott McClellan was made them feel justified for firing him and that's it it was this helping you win games and it hasn't helped them win games it makes them feel better just like low balling kirk cousins and implying that he was a it was true we haven't heard directly from you we've heard from your surrogates and if it's not true that's a real low road travel to talk about and disparity really even care you know they wanted to bleed Trent they wanted to make him tap out and crawl back they wanted to stick it to him wjr their medical and training staffs and by the way this is a team that stuck by you when you kept getting suspended for weed so raft I just don't think it's as big of a market as there was between say August an early October of this year but I don't think Bruce in Dan Act or if they are open to trading him teams get desperate right before the season starts early in the season or even sometimes right before the trade deadline on his contract that's not as attractive is to on there's more on that I'm going to get to that in a moment but is he still talented yes he'll be thirty two yes precedent set setting situation there were opportunities to deal him for some really good compensation and to bleed him More likely than not there will be a market for Trent Williams between January and you know next April before the I do understand the team's position on this but as I've said to you many times in the past it's Tommy's favourite line how much is the juice worth the squeeze in I think they're going to stick it to some more too I'm GonNa have that news here in a moment this is what they get off on all right feeling like they were wronged by somebody and then getting you absolutely understand why they are pissed off and I think it's totally justifiable why they are so angry and I believe that Trent Williams in his agent really messed up big time now why did he come back yesterday you know when he missed training camp or when he missed the the mini camp and I I mean I was calling for him to be traded last January but I said you know this may work out in the team's favor for the way they feel and by the way Trent Williams you had two years left on your deal you left your team high and dry and you left your team high and dry for something that we don't and make him crawl back to feel better about your position on this doesn't help you win games now there's more to this all right a lot more to this because came back yesterday because if he came back after yesterday he would have had to have been reinstated by the team to be on the fifty Lee because he wants to make sure that his contract you know basically gets credited for in learned about this situation so we put out this story yesterday about the Trent Williams thing and he said you know Trent Lincoln's reported back in essential fruit season and and he needed to be back by week ten for that to happen but in this particular case because he hadn't reported yet the team needed dreams attract to the seahawks in nineteen ninety nine and the seahawks argued that if he missed one regular season game his contract should what they call the baseline in some ways for the for future rulings florio wrote the ruling has since been interpreted for another year for a full year well Galloway ultimately won that grievance however that became sort of eight games on the active roster the redskins can use this roster exemption for up to three weeks toll for a full year right that's the term that we heard a lot yesterday essentially meaning that it gets you know brought over to the next year that it doesn't the this story Joey Galloway in Nineteen Ninety nine there was a grievance filed by as giving players under contract the ability to be on the roster for only eight regular season games to avoid tolling of the contract if at the Games that he missed during the whole out he's not getting credit for that season that if he had two years left on his deal now he's still got two years left on his deal because he held out so joey statement he needed to be back before week nine in this particular spot which is why he showed up yesterday but there was there's a a a wrinkle in Joey Galloway versus the seahawks situation in nineteen ninety nine Joey Galloway ultimately was a holdout and under Khan players on the roster for fewer than eight regular season games the team would have a potentially stronger argument for the tolling and he writes Williams rejoins washed prior to week nine so there are eight games left on the schedule so he should be good for six games on one of these lists to get credit nineteen with eight games left in the regular season if Washington takes advantage of the ability to use a roster exemption for Williams he'll end up with fewer than or the CBA a player needs six regular season games either on the fifty three man roster were one but I've been told that the redskins feel very strongly that Trent Williams really needed to avoid this opportunity from self to be in last week because right if they do that then Trent Williams isn't on the roster for eight weeks there's more to this though and this is where Trent Williams and his agent the reserve lists all right the injured reserve list or the PUP list to get credit for season six games which would tell you that Trent Williams needed her or one of the reserve lists which means his contract would not accrue it would not toll all right or would toll the US this exempt list to put him on there for three games which means that he will not have enough games on the fifty three man roster okay so what we have left we have nine left I eight left so if he's on the list for three games that leaves five that he could be on the fifty three man roster three man roster the injured reserve of the PUP list but profootballtalk put out a story for you actually put this story out and I did a little research and talked to a few people and I want everybody to know what in a week later if they use the three week exemption hill only get credit potentially for five games and that means the redskins would be in position to win excuse me it would toll to the next year and that means the redskins would have two years left on the Trent deal now it would get argued there'd be a grievance filed more likely than not for the season but then we go back to the exempt list opportunity that Floreal wrote about and this is what I have heard that the redskins are going they handled yesterday in an absolute irresponsible way with respect to the trade deadline I think they are detached from reality there's a delusional asks Alaoui held out for eight Games in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine seahawks filed a grievance saying hey he was under contract if he misses one game that contracts should toll back to their management team that is just unbelievable for to think grown adults in that business could be that far removed from what you've been in last week with nine games left and they use the three game exemption he would still get per the CBA this six games but since he came yes but I here's the thing you know I wanna make sure I'm really clear on this because I hate the way the Redskins do business I think had a team that trades form ultimately is gonNA understand they're going to have to give them a new deal and by the way at thirty two it's GonNa be harder for him to get this new which makes it harder on the redskins which is understand that yes I did understand that for the most part there's something I do I'm a little curious about as far as the two one yes logic says that obviously if he has two years you I'm all for the team doing that you know that to me would be good business now the better business move would have been to trade him already be in by what week ten so that he would have the final six games on the fifty three man roster now he came in right after week eight in multiple spots that they were asking for picks and Denzel Ward from Cleveland. Yeah for those of you not following Cleveland Denzel Ward the reality is there's a lack of self awareness in that organization that is mind boggling with that said specific to this Trent Williams thing if there really is it's an issue with their medical and training staff shame on him okay he two years

Nats Rolling & The Cousins Game

"You want it you need it it's what everyone's talking about the Kevin Sheehan show now here's Kevin you're listening into the sports fix Samis on the phone from Houston errands here I'm here after the nats one twelve to three last night to take a tune in nothing I they came back by the way with Bregman who's really struggled in this series and struggled defensively last night hitting a two run homer off a Strasbourg changes home they lose game one in the nets you know I it was one of those games in which you know they could chalk up Garett wasn't as good as he's usually sixth-inning to get out of that situation a dangerous situation was really that the most tents the most dramatic portion of the night by the way I by the Way Fox last night with the broadcast was phenomenal it seemed like every inning they had a tidbit about something that was a I about the redskins game Thank you but you know what actually a lot of people care about the Redskins game that's the truth of the matter but I right now personally three parts the pitcher part which was ver- lander versus Strasbourg both started off slowly and then both pitched grape Strasbourg sid yeah they definitely that's a really good way to describe it they were the hundred seven game winner the heavy favorite pull that liked the program the show for me you know sending sending me tweets now if you spend one second on the redskins tomorrow nobody cares care less much less about that than the baseball which was I described it on radio today Tommy Tell me what you think of this is a game that essentially had three collapsed I mean again the Astros I thought and I was wrong were were the team that that seem to like just the group that had been there before and they had their two best pitchers including arguably the best pitcher in the sport in the moment anyway going in the first two games in broke them down and you saw an astros team that while they they weren't having fun days they were consumed by by their own failure homerun in the seventh and they just ran away and hid from a great astros team but a game that really was so good through the end of the six then we had a chance to get to sure we never did it's just one game but then you're back at it in first of all ren don't put the nats out two nothing in the we're a historic accomplishment that the Nazis were in the midst of but one of the things that popped up is that's the first change of Homerun Strasberg's given thinning and I thought we were headed towards you know seventh eighth ninth inning drama until what they did to divert lander and the bullpen in the seventh and eighth that's so you had the pictures and then I said you had the sixth-inning Strasbourg getting through it and then the last part was the avalanche that started with the Suzuki back in the professionalism of what they do and the national just seem to be riding on this wave of having fun well what you saw eighty mile per hour curve ball with two runners on and stuck it right in there and totally froze tucker and I was like man Strasbourg yeah it really was like a heavyweight matchup between two great fighters for you know th the first six innings or at least five of the first is one great clutch pitcher he really was after the first inning last night and and what's He has supreme on and then the back half of the show we will talk about Redskins Vikings Tonight Tommy you know and you you get this too but I probably get more than you I get I mean you had opportunities for him to really buckle he looked spent pitch count was above one hundred you know he got behind Alvarez and then they intend confidence in his ability to throw three or four pits is differently I mean I remember when he started working on his changeup years John Situation there was some debate about that well that debate is gone at this point his change up is one of the best pitchers in all I was shocked I thought for sure that Corbin was going to be available if they needed him in a tight game last night and when Rodney got up in the sixth inning and then Tommy Strasbourg in this six. This is exactly what we've talked about you know now in this post-season in the narrative that has changed on him since August his changeups have been unhittable in Breguet and then you've got this back and forth game with a couple of threats here and there and that was the opposite you saw he saw national team that was you know methodical in their at back a against the Astros in the two to pitch and he doesn't get rattled but he yelled at the I mean he got really animated and then he gets created a pop out and gets Tucker on a curve ball a remote possibility the Joe Ross could spark game four but were you shocked at Rodney was the first one up I wasn't shocked just because they have shown a little bit of faith Rosberg still out there I was like Oh my God now he got in an eight two game so a much different situation by the time he came in but he he talked about how Strasbourg has his ability now to throw so many different pitchers and keep hitters like just just totally off base three to curve ball and that was a jump out of your seat moment like I was talking to rain night about it this morning and I said to him I'm like you know who at three two throws in of his stuff after the first innings Sherzer was behind behind in almost every count but somehow got out of five innings with just two earned runs on Strasbourg exciting's and and that it's just it's deteriorated into this this slugfest and the Asos Oh and there was some pushback on it as to whether or not the the motion for to change up with ultimately re aggravate his Tommy Ah in that situation maybe maybe there was a sense that if the game was broken open at that point you know the Astros broke open the game but homerun defensively he's been so good oh absolutely absolutely tremendous you know even Strasbourg had actually walked in which was the right thing for Davey to do and then Korea he's got two pitches that looked like strike three absolutely looked like strike three the one and two yeah it was it was just like sure Zor had that grind it out didn't have his best stuff it was different last night to Strasbourg did have quote about the nationals that he said in the postseason in the past they've seem to run into a buzz saw in the other team postseason like they are this postseason they always seem to struggle with their with their hitting in previous Playoff appearances even though they had he was the only one up so I guess that would have happened I still have a hard time believing that Davie would have done that I just can't I just can't see him doing that he came in with a six run lead after they broke it open in the seventh with Suzuki's Homerun and by the way what an underrated two games he's played I mean even before that baseball right now and Zouqi talked about last night Kurt Suzuki who who you know what was the guy who serves a drink for the nationals last night well yeah I think it's I think it's really interesting the whole discussion about you know Houston being a team that doesn't send out scouts and manager Davey Martinez you know this is I know this has been reduced in some ways to old school versus new school the Astros with their analytics computers he had a little trouble in the last time out so it wasn't shock did send me I was at nationals park and everyone around me got very nervous when they saw that yeah I mean that everybody is running into and he's right they they are just that I mean eight straight postseason wins ties the all time record is likely going to be the pitcher and a two game in the bottom of the seventh that's remarkably frightening at is and I'm not you know I mean I mean we've heard yesterday that it was very possible the corden would be available again last night in by the way if Corbin and pitch last night a mark Zuckerman said that there was even so I wanted to read it to you that I I read the early this morning that I thought was really interesting because they're in the seventh after Suzuki goes D I think he's a big stones pitcher throwing that curve to get Korea out or to get Tucker out there to end this six that was just an unbelievable unbelievable pitch strikeouts are up year after year after year and the national since spring training have preached don't strike out and that's that's that's served Mendes lineups and great hitting I think it's the personality of this team the veteran backup this team and and and an answer you know led by Mike Rizzo's scout scout you know every time I look at the nats in their shifted over in somebody hits a ground ball right into the shift and I think I already mentioned this but that was a change up like Strasbourg I I love his stones like it's just the opposite of what we the offense of you know big inning that that that starts to to end the game basically how `Bout Rodney up is the first guy in the bullpen in a two game after the first year and they both settled down and they both were really really good but that sixth-inning by the way I gotta ask you before we get to the seventh and and doesn't more likely than not win the game I mean Houston's got enough firepower they're going to face Fernando Rodney in the bottom of the seventh and I thought it was interesting like it's like everything is going their way you know in this postseason like they're like Rodney didn't have to enter the game in a two two or three two game or even four two the nationals hate to strike out they they don't like to do it this is why they're so successful with two strikes I mean they constantly they wanna put the ball in play is in that Strasberg's thrown so many curve balls over the last couple of years versus what he threw early on in more change by the way that that that Bregman home run well I don't necessarily agree with them I think this Zouqi homerun changed everything in the game by itself it would not have won the game but just like the Zimmerman he's going to walk they're talking about robe lace for me he said that's the play of the game closed quote it did like there is some there is some data and some analytics being used here to to make decisions in the game and somebody pointed out to me you know there's a real homerun you know the the night before it sort of opened up the floodgates for the rest of the offense it's certainly almost as much as he walked this year and Adam Eaton said that that was the most important at bat of the night and I'm GonNa find the quote here you know they they literally are I mean they've got all these cylinders pumping I at the same time and I always thought that maybe not all the postseason teams they've had in the past but I think most of them had the capability of doing the same thing but just fell short for one reason they never hit the said it's very difficult to hit after a solo home run especially in a big game sometimes you want to do too much you WanNa hit another homer that type of deal keep the in him and I did think that they would they wouldn't use rainy again they showed more faith in rainy but I didn't think they would pitch rainy back tobacco especially after for a three two lead you get robe lace up in row blaze doesn't walk you know he hasn't been a patient hitter he's only walked thirty five times all year he's gotten hit by pitch knock verlinden out I don't know ver- lander was going to stay in past rollerblades anyway but you know the Suzuki homer by itself professional hitters Kendrick in Cabrera with runners on and Kendrick hits that shot two bregman which he couldn't handle the call the debase it I think that's right although even that no not that I mean that's pretty frightening on the other hand when Robbie came in you know the Astros couldn't do anything with them even when the score was you know eight Sukey homerun was the key moment moments for the for the game I think that's that's really what what what changed everything for the nationals offense moving forward and that's not the trend in the game the Trenton the game is you know strikeouts are worth the chance to drive the ball you know over the front I mean let's go back to what you mentioned the Sodo intentional walk that was unbelievable they actually have I mean two of their four postseason team went on to win the world series so Strasbourg said maybe this year we're the buzzsaw without an intentional walk that's crazy crazy goes against it goes against you know they're very grain of of eight inch managing ended up a minute ago Gimme a second here he said he said that place here's the here's the quote by the way roadblocks in that the guy is a tough out it was an awesome game I would ask you a couple of things in follow up number one wait wait a minute wait a minute let's not intentionally no hitter I know I couldn't believe when I saw that I'm like how can you go one hundred and sixty two games bat he looked at strike three I mean there was a pitch that was right down the middle that I could not believe was not called strike three with the two and to count but anyway I'm eating said the following he stretch the lead out and it was a great at bat too because that guy when he's down in the county just battles he'll strike out a bunch when nobody's on but when people are on a Lotta guys afterwards were saying you know that's a play Bregman can make it's like a fifty fifty play and then I loved Cabrera last night like I think you said on Tuesday that that Eaton honed in on that at bat that robos walking the got the rest of the inning jumpstarted was the key moment in the game I didn't think of it that way in the moment intentionally walked somebody in the entire season and postseason today crazy crazy twenty this is a twenty year old kid yeah but it would have been different situation had he entered the game in a two or a three two games Aaron Aaron were you shocked like I'm giving you all of these tidbits and I'm fine with Joe Buck in in smoltz I think they do a good job but a lot of these historic numbers that were poppy ed coming out of Saint Louis and they didn't have the firepower really to win four out of the next five games what do you think about the Astros do you think Oh we both I think felt in after the two games in Saint Louis that the series was for all intents and purposes over CAS Saint Louis just didn't they looked this is loaded after a Soto intentional walk again just like you didn't game five against the dodgers and he hit it hard hit it in there and Bregman got the glove on it and that scored another run in the IT nationals with their ski we would rely more heavily on scouting but in a way that's accurate because they talk about this after the game I said this that you expected dosier to get the start at second well that was only because that was only because I expected a pitching matchup between fresher I mean they've got the we've been here before we we know how to win and postseason you know basically resumes really capable of beating the nationals in Ford the next five games I've had the over in the first two games it was totally the contrarian play with the pitching matchups Cabrera got the to win and then Zimmerman it was it was great but yes there were there were things the Fox broadcast was excellent last night and with I face open I mean if he had pitched a soda that would've been insane in that but yeah and you know Kendrick comes up with the bay over the weekend but I don't see this as a clean sweep I would think that the Nadal's nationals are gonNA have to battle the next two in particular with Sanchez and with Corbin historic in terms of the number of games in a row the number of road games and they were within three down three one in the eighth inning against Josh Hater Baseball at this year a team that won the world series two years ago I don't think they're going to I don't think they're gonNA fold up under the in third and so does behind them and it's like the one guy that you're you know you think you can't get out you actually get him out in springer made a really good down three one in game five to the dodgers and Dave Roberts leaves Kershaw in there you know it's such a fine line in sports not just baseball we we see the DR team there I don't think they anyone expected Suzuki to put that kind of wood on on the ball like like like he did so I still think that it was it was on thirty favorite and I think the world will be on the nets to win that game but yeah I don't think they're dead either I would be surprised if they don't win at least a game or two who's WHO's become the star postseason and the most feared hitter and the nationals lineup he turns twenty one tomorrow for Games up about what the nationals had done and what they've been doing in the postseason we're really interesting I'm GonNa get to those in a moment but that was an unbelie I was a jaw dropper that they had franchise is being just ripped apart by everybody you know despite the run to get into the post season they were facing the best closer in the sport down three one and all time yeah yeah but you know but Tommy a historic sweep or even if they win five I mean the run that they've had is all ready got it done with a broken bat bloop single a hit by pitch and a hit by soda which was awesome but it also was a was an error on on the right behind them so I I I I don't think they're done and I'd real wary about celebrating a little bit too early because there's you think about this like okay they made a really nice run but they lost in the playoffs again and are the learners gonNA lose Ren Dome because they lose him than the yeah I I absolutely I absolutely think that I mean if if it's a sweep then we're talking about one of the historic postseason teams of all time yeah I expected him to start game right and that's why he was in there you know he was in there for that professional to run RBI single when you had to have it had somebody asked though that in the after the game last night and his answer was have you watched Soto into Syria right yeah we'll context is everything I don I still shiver when I think of that fifth inning against the Chicago cubs in in in in two thousand seventeen Do things all the time where you look back and you're like wow it was almost over before it started and if it ended in that wildcard game against Milwaukee the home run in the seventh eighth and ninth inning of a world series game really I didn't know that I I was shocked by like I was like really makes it can happen or for the next five I mean there there I mean we're talking about you know arguably the best regular season teams it was three to two rogue swap Turner walked you know then they used eaten to sack bunt those guys over Ren don't I was listening to Hinch in the post game show lasted Sir and Roberts should have never left Kershaw in there to face Soto after rendering homered never so lot of different things that you need it's it's it's seems like it would have happened but Suzuki and the seventh eaten in the eighth and then Taylor in the night first time one team has had a home run in each the seventh eighth and ninth innings of a World Series in the lineup and they've got professional older guys like Cabrera and Kendrick in Zimmerman in the Zouqi Suzuki became the oldest player you know they've been buzzsaw it in the past and now they're now they're buzz sawing people and they've been on the back end in the wrong end of all of the brakes and this night that they're running on MLB network and it was really funny he said you know that seventh-inning the one you got rendong coming up and you got Turner in Robe Lace on second well Yeah I mean everything they seem to do right now seems to work for them but you know when you look at their town you can fielder on that same play and that's how they were to being eliminated and we would have spent a lot of the week following talking about Sherzer in the decision to picture I'm that I was stunned at the to hear that last night was the first time in world series history that a team has we understand it and and and explain it because I mean the their lineup from top to bottom a full I mean there's no game crazy it was it's awesome you're right it's a great lineup healthy you know and it's got stars with Ren Donen Soda Great Well Look first base was open for random too and they didn't walk came to get this Soto they weren't allowed to do that all right Eh postseason they're getting everyone to go their way yes they have seen more than their share breaks go against them in the postseason I mean there's there's ear to hit a go ahead home run in a world series game in the seventh inning or later at thirty six years old that was another one I mean out in that lineup no no there isn't there isn't an you know even like guys Michael Taylor gets into the act that was another one eight to to keep robe lace at third and and not allow them to tag up and score they walked Soto and then you had backed about back with what you know you guys referred to as onto Ino Aaron in this series now I love the Astros on Friday night they're favored in game they are favored and game three there are minus one twenty five minutes aries lead it was such a good game through six innings so compelling so tight and then they blew it open in the seventh we've got that that's what we're going to spend the first half of this show words or and and call and in that but I I look it game to knowing Cabrera's numbers against a Berlin dead they're dead look at the the nationals have won eight straight games the Houston Astros can win four straight games for usually he was like a fourteen or fifteen home runs a year guy over the course of a full season and again Hey listen he had seventeen home runs this year in less than three hundred out that I mean his his power has emerged in the past couple of years for him historic fashion the nine run victory winning by by twelve threes the most lopsided win by a road team since twenty eleven in the world our world series where the Yankee one I think all three of their games by tremendously wide margin and and every game the pirates one is the bumgarner comes out of the bullpen series so then here here's more you'll love this stuff the nets nineteen sixty world series against Pittsburgh correct me if I'm wrong that's the Mazeroski world series right yes it is that was bizarre what happened to him tonight. So when you're mandates respect for that Guy Yeah all right so here are some of the incredible statistics fourteen royals the white sox and the Oh four red sox for the longest winning streak in a single postseason that's where the nets are right now with eight straight combined in the first two games to score seventeen runs it's the third most by any road team in the first two games of a world series ever it's the most that a team has scored on the road and the first two games in the world series since the Yankees scored twenty in the first two games of the in in in accomplishment came out of that game first of all the nets have now one eight straight games in the postseason that ties the Russian in that clubhouse especially during those tough times Suzuki's name comes up every single time is one of the emotional leaders on that team was razor thin but yes it was a matter out the home run and and the walk off home run in game seven was the sixties Ryan Zimmerman was talking about last night he was on with I forget where I saw Ryan late early this morning actually that game was a four hour plus game and by the way series and was the was only the fourth time Tommy since the division era started in one thousand nine hundred sixty sixty nine that a team won a world series what about him and he said you know he was here in two thousand twelve and he was a great teammate then and he's a great teammate now everybody loves him in respects him and it was so good to see that Houston if he didn't and Suzuki you know made a great bro to to get them out but Zimmerman said about Zouqi he said he just said he just smiled when he was Diane in the sixty two world series yeah all right so let me continue with some of this stuff because it's amazing they're not just up to nothing they're doing it in you forget so many things when a game I had that much to it and I was just looking through my notes how bad altuva trying to steal third in the bottom of the first it would have been a bigger inning potentially that one right yeah offer out Terry who came back and sixty two and I think won the Cy Young Twenty three wins and then beat these games by world series game by at least nine runs on the road only the eighty two brewers in ninety six braves pulled that off all right stress Burg's postseason era is one point three four we knew this before but I'm just thrown into the mix second only to Sandy Koufax for starters that have gotten at least you just starting with the dodgers until those teams went on to win the world series I'll pray right so starts in the postseason that's amazing it really is and that's going to be the lead if he's in the hall of fame was his postseason career at this point as well it's very reminiscent of Kirk showing I'm Randy Johnson seat thousand one Arizona diamondbacks This whole roster is reminiscent of that right now that was a team that Rizzo was the director of scouting. Ron and I don't think it's a coincidence that this team is built in a lot of ways like that diamondback team was all right here the other quick quickly you know the two nothing series lead eighty five percent seventy he's the last team that didn't the Yankees lost the first two in ninety six to the braves and won that series the eighty six mets lost the first could be yeah I mean that you know in a way and Rizzo Microsoft the general manager talked about this it and you've mentioned this yeah because they want I was thinking for second wait a minute did they win game four you get four royal the Royal Faucet giants in two thousand fourteen exactly due to the Red Sox and won that series and the eighty five royals lost the first two to the cardinals at home and won that series so out of eighty four teams have gone on to win in the current two three two format but when you've won the first two games on the road twenty two out of the last twenty-five have won the world series there you go there they they would appear based on the facts and figures to be in pretty good shape but there's a long way to go I actually liked the Astros in game three I'm going to be there by the way series but yeah I mean those that was that was a tremendous series for the Yankees absolutely off Ralph Terry right to get that one right I think you might have it think we've had this conversation before but care for whatever reason really enjoyed the caps run in the Stanley Cup as well she got into that but she was not watching last I think Ryan's coming back from Penn state he's GonNa come back to the game and I think Corbin my middle son is GonNa come with me as well my oldest son I think is out of town this weekend so I think it'll be the three okay now yeah I did I I don't know that she really cares much it's funny you and I both talked about this before yet I haven't seen him yet but game one off the charts a twenty three point one rating Tommy which is incredible it's the highest rated game nights she couldn't have cared less maybe maybe I can convince her to go of course I friends of mine that would say seriously you're going to take your wife and she couldn't care less my wife couldn't care less about sports couldn't care less about sports again except except he surprises me sometimes see what happens all right I wanted to get to the redskins but there are a couple of other things did you see I have not seen the ratings for last a seventh and deciding game might do something around forty plus it's just a bigger market opportunity for baseball we're seeing that and I think we're gonNA see so you know like errands looking at me like errands like you're not going to take me you're gonNA take her come on so anyway we'll see early in the world series and when you get to close out games or crucial you know three two or a game seven you're GonNa see Thirties and maybe people get this is why I've argued that no matter how much the redskins think they have the safety that of the fact that arguably a bigger number for last night I of course I said this on the podcast yesterday I think are on the show and you got people that are saying you're so dismissed cup run in Chinatown he goes I know you love to trash the cat caps but let's be fair here first of all it's outside versus mostly inside it's thousand five hundred people at Nats Park last night was considerably less than what the cap had between those inside and outside the arena when they were making their Stanley I tell you that I got a ticket or not I think he's at yeah okay so I'm excited about you know I'm going to take I'm going to take at least eight Oct. with temperatures by the way last night in the forties verses forties in low fifties versus the middle of June I mean get a grip watch the nationals in the world series but she can't stay up late she gets stay awake long enough to watch a baseball game yeah that's funny because I so maybe we'll go if she wants to go she doesn't really like going to sporting events but if you explain to her that this isn't a sporting event did I did go to a sports bar with some friends to watch you know the first two days of the NCAA tournament but I'm not gonNA stay there for the Maryland game I need to be by myself or with money like it's not close and we're gonNA see that because you're going to see a television number in the thirties here in the next few games I agree I Zhen rating that's like five times that of the Stanley Cup finals I found the tweet that I wanted to read it was from this dude pat and this Guy Kevin Guy this guy I don't you're talking about whatever I mean we we get the same people a lot of times but he said she and the fourteen I agree with with all that and what's interesting by the way you cannot anoc caps it's not they had a great run in a cool this shows this shows how how how difficult it is to interpret TV ratings today and how I think they're eventually really soon I mean you know so of course the nationals are going to have more interest because there's more interested in baseball the world series you know does a telephone six rating which was still really good in the second highest rating for the nats ever but I put out the tweet when they did the fourteen point six I said you're going to see twenties I disagree with you it's still significant majority of people that consume a sporting event they do they do so through television all of the my small my small group of people that I like watching games with I don't want to be with the dudes that have the jerseys on their own name on the back of the Yeah I noticed that nationally I think game one of the world series the ratings were lower than they've been before almost historically lower but it's night are they out yet earned for for last night skiing not that I've seen yet usually they come out either not out in that's history the highest before that was game five against the cardinals in two thousand twelve game for the close out game against the cardinals only did like a fourteen points fault because they have bigger numbers we'll have that same then hockey we'll have that same phenomenon going whether it's a national or whatever Houston series are GonNa be down compared to red sox dodgers last year or Astros dodgers the year before that or was cubs Indians the year before that I think it was it was so you've had big big market baseball cities involved in the world series the capitals I don't it's not about the capital's baseball's got a bigger audience period if you don't you're stupid you know so I know that this is what it's NFL football I mean there there there's the NFL factor that's always going to protect them from falling too far and where the wizards are in the same position that the nets are in right now to do a fair ca comparable but the nets right now are the clear number two in town and here's the confusion of of what happened in game one with the national broadcast it's one of the lowest they ever had but it was the highest rate Azizi and care about getting hammered and and you know and trying to get lucky setting like that but anyway no like she actually sat at home and watch some of the Stanley Cup Game I remember Mr Hockey game in her life and she's watched some of that it was disappointing from an attendant standpoint Cetera I'm so glad that they've made this run because it really does validate everything they've been doing the net of it is is that baseball has the real I think basketball does too but you know that that's I don't think we're GonNa see that you know for a while now they are a perennial contender you know this is sustained success this is the fifth year in the postseason for the mended leading up to these this post-season the four major disappointments especially the three game five losses at home but they are doing something right down on their Mike Rizzo has done something right he's figured it out and he's created and built a perennial contender you know they're in the hunt being into the game and not missing pitches and not missing the commentating and and I don't like to be bothered when I'm watching a big game days you'll never match those numbers when you had reactions ABC CBS and NBC. You're never going to have that option but the numbers for the nets is team in the last eight years and they're going in there in the world series and they may win it this year but it's not like they just got here you know we we've obviously Dr for last night personally I feel this way I don't I'm not a guy that's going to go to Nats Park and watch the game I like watching the game I like the TV show in the United States at night right so how do you what does that mean Oh you're comparing it to back when you didn't have all these options so these are big markets yes but in terms of identity the teams are not big market identity team fair enough that's exactly what it is yes the dodgers and the Red Sox are big you know I say that in knowing that there's this fine line right of not getting through the Milwaukee Wildcard game and a lot of things changing potentially yes I love that I you know the results sharp we've always known it you know he is he knows what he's doing Iran's the national laws are in the Astros or not baseball or sports brands at this point but I'll tell you what you know the the the most impressive thing one hundred bucks leading up to that game late you're not going to be able to get into the park for the world series for less than a thousand dollars but go ahead can tap no not at this point you know if they had not gotten through Josh later in the wildcard game but that doesn't change the fact that that was their fifth postseason appearance in eight seasons AH will be one of the most difficult tickets to get we've had in this town in a long long time and as you pointed out maybe the most important sporting event ever to be played in this city every year you can't say that yes they are about I think a lot of teams I I think they're the third winningest franchise in baseball in since and they have to end it in game five wouldn't be that displeased they'd love the revenue from all three home games Oh yeah they have you gotta go out the window in terms of measurement I think the only people pay attention some right now our our Madison Avenue and you know as we've sat here for years talked about the bad culture and the bad ownership and the bad management of the football team in town and we had an NFC championship games and you've had Stanley Cup Finals Games in an NBA championship series game but it's the world series it has sustained remarkably did Matt Williams after did they did they have a winning record after the year they lost it after the year they lost to the giants even though I think the nats are GonNa win the series you can go to mybookie dot ag if you WanNa bet football you WanNa bet baseball basketball now the NBA season started the wizards open. Thanks I mean they they they have not had a losing season since two thousand eleven so you're right they have built something that in this day and age eight thousand twelve and three years that they didn't make the playoffs they they had winning seasons it's not like they wanted attain and lost like ninety or one hundred up last night Bradley beal by the way got ejected with a minute to go in the game I didn't see one second of that last night but if you've been looking for a place to bet my yeah no no I totally agree with that I totally agree I people could say oh walk in the ratings are the lowest they've ever been and you could say yeah but more people watch he's and now you've got to Houston in Washington but anyway but I want to point out are you know when you talk about big market business they have fast payouts they've got great lines they are fair you're going to be able to play in any way you WANNA play go to my bookie dot ag today US aimed postseason revenue for every owner in every sport is cash right in their pocket so I'm sure they are elated to host this man Pipe Promo Code Kevin DC they'll double your first deposit you play you win you get paid all right let's get to tonight it's a good thing that there's no yes and they're playing at least to this weekend I bet I bet you that the learners deep down if the Astros win say on Saturday which by the way there's rain in the forecast I'll do that shortly I usually don't do that with Tommy because we usually do it on the Friday show but we'll do it with Tommy here today but if not for the nationals as my Promo Code Kevin DC CAVEAT NBC and my bookie will double your first deposit that's my bookie dot ag and of course secondly they're going to face kurt cousins in the gains any by the way did you guys hear Callahan the other day enunciate Kirk in the world series this probably gets people who haven't been paying attention to the redskins season to perk up a little bit first of all there's no football to compete with it it's the only game tonight respond tonight and there couldn't be baseball tonight because Fox has the world series and Fox has Thursday night football so that's why you're not getting baseball to conflict with the football tonight and the of being able to route four kirk cousins who I've been rooting for since the day he left here now I have been I mean I had royal clearance than any other program on TV of course it's the same with the NFL it's the same with basketball I mean the pre cabled what the nationals have accomplished and I'm so glad by the way that they didn't get eliminated in the wildcard game and lose Ren dawn and have you know a coming off a year Refu- who thought he would be a good quarterback coming out of Michigan state in fact Tommy when we used to do that thing you heard it here first on the sports fix I predicted remember I predict postseason game all right quick word about my bookie dot ag if you WanNa bet the Astros on Friday night which I think is going to be the right side it's like all right so exciting times in Friday night's GonNa be quite the scene and it in quite the he put that on the end so everybody could hear it and it was really interesting Kirk little bit ball tonight is redskins at Vikings where the Vikings are sixteen and a half point favorites in the game. I'm GONNA do a Redskins win if didn't twenty eleven that cousins was going to be the future starting quarterback in the redskins when he was still at Michigan State but anyway I always felt like he seemed like a good fit for Mike Shanahan or would be he's just a really smart capable. NFL quarterback who if you have the right coaching staff and good then he can really look average to less than average but yeah. I am rooting for him and the Vikings sorry people find that distasteful so you I'm not rooting for the Redskins to win this game I don't think there's any benefit in them winning games the rest of the way and I get the added benefit you know all oh man bills taking some shots at J. and that may have been shot at Bruce a little bit but anyway I I'm not GonNa Bullshit eighteen they would have won a lot more games because they were pretty damned good offensively they certainly capable enough offensively is he a great quarterback no I never said he was a lot of that has to do with identity more than actual market size because you've been is the fifth largest market and Washington it's like six or seven six the Redskins to win the game but understand this and I'm just being honest part of it is that I want to be right you know I was among Tommy knows this I was among the I I don't know that the learners have always had the same faith that people like you've had him you know a real baseball people but they know what they're doing and again Suzuki is one of the strongest clubhouse presences on the team every conversation you hear about the nationals when they've had been rooting for him I'm still rooting for him you know now if the redskins were five and two no I'd want the Redskins to win the game and I'd want maybe cousins to to look good but I'd like a winning quarterback yes in wing you know you win in the NFL for a lot of reasons if the redskins had had a better defense in two thousand sixteen and twenty and I loved what Shanahan said about him and thought about him and I would say even privately that this guy is going to be a big time players around him he will torch you and if you don't you can rattle the shit out of him and really make them look you know subpar but we've yeah I think they want eighty three games that year okay I know they have not had a losing season last year with Davy they want eighty two games there ways to consume this stuff is a fraction of television right now it may occur but the measurement is is applaud measurement percents whatever it is I think it's five it was fifth out of eight right because they were did they weren't in it in thirteen fifteen and eighteen I think that's what it's your problem not mine I can't stand people people want to fight it distasteful that you're you're hoping the Redskins lose people fight it in quarterback in the league I took a guess I got it right I mean I've already been proven right he's been a starting quarterback in a productive one in the NFL as around his strength with good pieces around him he can be really really good in produce at a high level and if you don't then you know and you get to them seen enough now from his career no that if he's got you know a good offensive guy in basically designing an offense and in calling what I'd like to see him continued to evolve into a much better quarterback than he's been is he a great like a a winning quarterback okay dot ag will take good care of you you you got you there's a lot of research to be done I've done the research for you my book Dot AG is one of the biggest in one of the best in the and wagon just like the Nets are benefiting from the bandwagon effect to you know do you know that you could get into game four against the cardinals for less than morten tasteful that you're rooting for colonel of course but you know I'm not I'm not about to be disingenuous people know that I'm rooting for him but I was rooting for the Redskins to lose the dolphins game I wanted the dolphins to make that two point conversion so I they've they've approached the last few weeks and appear on the on the there's other N._F._L. I'm I'm more interested in the other games tonight it's a standalone and we'll see what happens I have a good day almost like taken aback at how critical they are it's much more of an indication that it's much more than just your record you know the fact that it's mob mentality because nobody respects the redskins in nobody likes the redskins there are teams that have just as bad or even worse away at some point and turn it around nobody believes that about the redskins nobody and you know what's interesting is that you know when people are openly I'm critical of somebody to the point where you're you think the team itself the players itself or likable I do actually I I really do like and Bruce's continuing the organization's stance is just so petty and so small minded in my view yeah I don't like my organization work there are several players you know I don't know John Well but I've had multiple conversations with Jon Allen I really like Jon Allen Now I am a redskin fan at heart I will I cannot wait for the day that they are actually legit a legitimate NFL franchise in operating like one people that are a little bit more attached to reality we have a we understand that there's no path out of this that's obvious that spot now they'll probably fuck it up anyway I mean they're already fucking up the Trent Williams situation did you see the latest news on that that Cleveland's now Cleveland's now look it'd be reboot mode right now and this is going to be a very valuable draft to have the number one number two or number three pick in it and I want them to end up in occurred but they have people in the organization that the rest of the League respects and like and therefore they actually hope or believe that those teams will get out of there around the League media types other league people you know former players to take shots at the redskins and I said this the other day and I forget if I said it to you so I'll say it again so kyle took shots at them and everybody's been taking shots at the redskins you know publicly there's no there's no hesitation Tommy for people being at other NFC teams a guy like nate solder as a possible trade target this Guy Dorsey keeps calling bruce saying we'll give you basically anything you want you've been a failure it's that those people don't respect you and furthermore don't like you and they don't care because they're there owns this team and even worse has Bruce L. and running it they're not going anywhere they're not I mean they are going to continue to be unless you know and I've said this before unless they stumble onto to the next Peyton manning like the Earth's as did and maybe Dwayne Haskins that guy but as long as Dan Snyder that failure will bring about saying no I don't I don't this is the state we're in a lot of us and I think by the way I am exaggerating there I don't know exactly what you're saying Jones was on with me this morning saying that the Redskins Absolutely could get a I like a third from Cleveland for Trent Williams Eh the laughing stock of the League and it's gotten I forget if you and I talked about this the other day but Ryan night is is a first rate guy you know what I like case keenum had a chance to have a conversation with over the summer briefly I liked casey its size how bad it is on the outside I think some of them are surprised still with the contempt and we're playing meaningful games again but tonight let me ask tonight I'm from Minnesota Yeah you have any hope about Josh Norman but the Landon Collins running his mouth all summer about the giants drove me nuts but I think I think that that everybody had for this is organization the players I mean yeah so you know when you when you were saying that I was like him yes Chris Thompson is a first rate guy yet there are I think they are a likable group of player do they get credit for drafting and acquiring players that are likable how do you how do you reconcile the you know the ineptitude the incompetence in which Dan and Bruce run this organization and then say you know what though I really you know some of the guys I mean they've had a lot of guys that have come into the organization run their mouth and they've got a coach they did this summer and Rob Ryan and they've had those before but yeah they do they have they have higher quality people as players then maybe they have in the past I mean I'm just thinking about the top of my head you know Sean Jackson Chris Baker they hate the redskins and it's a shame I feel sorry for these players to be part of the organization and I'm I'm still not sure most of them realize and Dr Lying Oregon Moses has gotten to be annoying yes so likable group but everybody yeah I haven't thought about it that way I mean like you know you almost have to separate the two I mean but I mean I think I like I'm not crazy liked their employees I like I really liked their players should make it easier to swallow but it doesn't that's what I want but anyway and I went to Wayne Haskins to play if Dwayne haskins restarting tonight I'd really be hoping that he looked in he'd really well I would anyway by the way Tommy I think they're I think they're going to play well defensively tonight they stop the run all right and make Minnesota by the way one dimensional and they put it on Kirk rooting for him against Miami or New England or last week against the forty niners either I want them to have the number one pick in the draft and turn it in to like three ones and a two or anymore because he had the choice they they essentially you know what I'm going to go back to that right now because I'm going to take this opportunity I didn't do it on the show today yeah I do like Kirk I'm rooting for Kirk had been rooting for kirk cousins I like Kirk cousins you know he's a quality guy which by the way is one of the reasons he isn't he you know I've heard this narrative over the last couple of years that Kirk didn't want to be here so go to hell see a later and the people of just essentially told them to f. off and they don't care about him because he screwed the organization that is so off by Dell's alright that's not what happened here he was never actually given a reasonable chance to stay here contractually it was so under the market it was thirty five to forty million dollars under his projected market value his event yeah it really should but it just doesn't you know like I like Jordan Reed I like Vernon Davis Yeah listen close

Three Reasons The Trent Saga Is Important

"You want it. You need it. It's what everyone's talking about. The kevin sheehan show now. Here's kevin all right. I'm here aaron is here. This shows presented today by stamps dot com. It's going to be quick <hes> today. <hes> we bailed on yesterday at the last minute because tommy wasn't feeling feeling. Well and i just said you know what will wait for him to come in on thursday. I'll do something tomorrow so we bailed and i told you guys i appreciate the feedback by the way some some of you saying. I'm canceling my subscription well. There's nothing to cancel. We want you to subscribe but you're not paying for it so don't worry about it on that front <hes> but thank thank you for for caring so much but we did. We did mention and i'm going to mention again between now and labor day weekend. We are going to take a couple of days aww of the podcast even though i am doing the three hour radio show every morning on nine hundred again if you didn't know that tune in for that too in fact i'm going to play back part of an interview that i had this morning with albert breer. <hes> on the radio show <hes> couple of things to get started with first of all <hes> the nats <hes> one again huge win for them. <hes> they've now won three in a row after those real painful losses against the mets on friday night and saturday night and how joe ross now joe ross just set <hes> the season record for the most consecutive innings pitched without giving us a one seventeen and a third innings before he finally gave up a run yesterday the only gave up one last night <hes> in a in a game in which he went into the seventh inning. I mean it really is amazing. We were talking about possibly trade star a few weeks ago and if they make the playoffs it's going to be a big contribution is from joe roth and eric feddie. I know and think about this like even if sherzer is back right <hes> if sh- well no you've got your four started with with sherzer back but here's not back or if somebody isn't ready to go in the postseason in a best of seven series you could easily well look you could see sure zor pitcher wildcard game and and then you get to a day off and then three that's the way the best five for strong goes i believe is that you get to that day and they would you too and then the final game at home right so more likely than not you wouldn't ever get to your fifth starter demand that particular situation nor would you really in a best of seven either <hes> but assures assures not there they would have a a decision potentially in a best of seven between ross confetti against the dodgers if they got there. It's amazing to see joe ross the the big thing for it and and something that you know you kind of have to look at the real closely at the advanced numbers like his velocity is way up especially on that two seam fastball. Do you remember i said had this to zuckerman on the podcast. Joe ross started a game <hes> a few weeks ago and it didn't turn out well results wise and i'm going to go back and find exactly game that i'm talking about. It was the game that he pitched against the braves all right. It was a game that he pitched against the braves on the road and he gave up ended up giving up two runs in the first <hes> but then battled through an almost in got into the sixth inning in that game and i remember saying to zukerman. I'm like you know what i thought he pitched well. I mean you know from a casual observer standpoint. I wasn't really into that game. I had not seen ross pitch a ton in previous games. He had a terrible outing in his last game. Before the one. I'm talking about <hes> but zuckerman said yeah <hes> he talked to david martinez and martinez was actually very encouraged with ross's start there then he came back and got shelled against the dodgers and then since then three incredible incredible starts three wins in three starts against arizona the giants and cincinnati he's given up a total of nine hits and one earned earned run. That's it right now. In the month of august. He's got a zero point. Five zero yara that's ziara and he's literally lowered lowered his e._r._a. From nine point eight five to start the month to five point nine one in three starts. There's something about him and i mentioned in this to you. I think he looks very calm and confident. I know he doesn't always get the results but i liked joe ross and i'm happy that he's doing this because i think he's much better as a starter then coming out of the bullpen. I'm at least that's the way it soon appeared to me in recent years so they can finish off the sweep this afternoon against cincinnati natty which would be really good atlanta one against the mets huge series there said the nats are still six back but their game clear now of saint louis for the for the first wildcard and their nine games above five hundred which correct me if i'm wrong. I think this is the best they've been. I think they were nine games above five hundred a few weeks ago and now they're back to that <hes> with a chance to get ten games above five hundred. I said this morning on the radio. Show we are now in the midst of a good season. They're they're now now. Having a good season there nine games above five hundred one hundred nineteen in into this right now right so twenty three games left not twenty three forty three games left <hes> in the season <hes> and they've got a chance to turn this into a really good season. You know it would be exciting to be in that. One game wild card. They haven't played played that be more exciting. If they came back and won the division you know in had a first round series with the cubs instead of or the cardinals instead of having to go go to l._a. And play the dodgers in a in a first round series if they were to win the wild card you bring up that one game wild card and you know we've obviously in this sound been through game five game sessions and other sports and we know that nauseating. I can't even imagine what a one game playoff with the best starters teams on the mound so dramatic. How about this is a possibility unless you're gonna tell me that they've changed this and that there's some sort of tiebreaking procedures but it's possible with this backlog in this race right now that you could end up having teams three or four teams tied for the wild card and ended ended up with a plan to the wildcard plan. I mean you can have that on like a mundane day. How about this. You have a tie for the end up in a tie for that and then you play the right and then you play the wildcard or at that point then you're tied for the wife of art in you're playing somebody to to get into the wild card. I i'm assuming that at some point you could have one of those crazy. Two or three day sets to figure out the finally team we had that. I feel like a few but i'm wondering did they. I mean look this up. Did they actually build in some tiebreaking. I i don't think so. I don't think they did because before they had it where they could decide the division based on tiebreaker because you could just go to the wildcard but now that the division verse wildcard actually means something. Thank you gotta play it out yeah here here. I'm actually interested in the salutes two way tie for the division or wildcard one game tiebreakers lakers are played between teams tied for a division championship or a league's second wildcard berth. These games are to be played. The day after the season is scheduled edged end homefield advantage is determined using the rules listed below which would be some sort of head to head winning percentage okay so and then there's a bunch of <hes> tiebreakers after that from the implementation of the wild card in nineteen ninety four through the end of the two thousand eleven season a different rules in place. These two teams tied for a division did not play tiebreaker if their records were better than all non division winners basically if both teams made the way off anyway exact starting in two thousand twelve they they were. It's all you have to play a nation games right funny. What about the second wildcard. What if there's a i mean if there's multiple yeah it's just you you gotta play birth. That's what it's for exactly okay so we could have a lot of drama both by the way both leagues this year look at the standings in both of these leagues in the american league right now. You've got to essentially runaway winners in the yankees in the astros <hes> but then you know you've got a a division race between minnesota and cleveland. That's virtually tied at this point and then you're wildcards. You've got tampa you know cleveland oakland and still i guess yes theoretically you still have well you get the minnesota cleveland lose division loser then you've got to oakland then you've got tampa and i guess you still have boston but they've really fallen back here. <hes> recently and then in the national league you've got the braves nats phillies and mets all in contention for <hes> you know the nets phillies phillies mets for a wild card in the central. Whoever doesn't win it. They're going to be two teams in the race for the wild card and then right now. The diamondbacks earn a little bit of a roll their the two games a bit bub-bubba five hundred. They're still not so. It'll be exciting <hes> i actually have watched a lot of the nats here recently and in flipping around on the m._l._b. Be network to see some games especially the mets recently. It's been fun to watch them <hes> but some exciting things <hes> down the stretch here <hes> for the home team and hopefully the crowd. It'll show up only twenty two thousand. I think the other night for that first game against cincinnati. I don't know what it was last night. Do you know what the i don't know what the crowd is off. The top attendance was last night. <hes> it was only twenty two for the game back and then last night they have it at the bottom of the box score here online thirty thousand last night thirty thousand one on thirty not that last night for the reds and afternoon start today to finish up the series then they get the brewers. I think after that at home the brewers were hot now. They're not <hes> but anyway <hes> baseball really heating up here. Okay <hes> a couple of things number. One is this. I'm thrilled ruled that maryland's bringing back their scripted turps helmets from the eighties <hes> i actually texted back and forth with loxley yesterday. I told him this is unbelievably. Blue said kevin we gotta get back to our roots and i said that's what you're doing. This is exciting to a lot of people my age. That's when i was at marilyn was during the bobby ross years from from eighty two to eighty seven eighty six actually his first four years at maryland. He was thirty four and fourteen with three a._c._c. championships. The uniforms ormes changed with bobby ross right. He was the one that brought in the uniform change. In nineteen eighty two <hes> boomer esiason was the quarterback it was red and white bottoms at home it was white and white on the road most of the time although they did do white and red pants on the road occasionally and they had the script turps red helmets was red helmets with script turps in white and they're gonna bring back that uniform for homecoming this year. Did you see what the homecoming yes yeah. I got a little problem with the. I do too but so what the homecoming game is november second against michigan. That's not a homecoming coming game that they'll be favored to win more likely than not two weeks prior. They have a home game against the indiana. That's middle of october. Wind homecoming is supposed to be i. I don't get the i don't. I don't either doesn't make any sense to me. Why homecoming would be against michigan and to your point you know <hes> well. Sometimes it's only in november but anyway <hes>. I am really excited about mike loxley i and the reason i'm excited about him more so than dirk in or more so than ed ed soul <hes> is that you know the the he knows what maryland football can be and i'm not saying that it's on durkan didn't have some sense of the history of the program but if you go back maryland in the last forty years his essentially had to winning periods and that's it it was bobby ross it's in the eighties and then ralph region in the early. Two thousands ralph was there for ten years went to seven bowl games. One five of them had an incredible start from a two thousand one through two thousand four where he won actually in his first three years i think he won thirty three games something like that in his first three years. The averaged over ten ten wins a year and you're talking about fresian a guy that really understood what maryland football could be <hes> loxley was on region staff. Loxley grew up going byrd stadium and watching the bobby ross teams. He was a teenager during those years went to the games grew up in d._c. Was a big maryland football fan and i and i i love the fact that he remembers all those players boomer assize and frank reich stand gelbaugh maryland was quarterback you in the eighties <hes> they had great running backs ax alvin blount willie joyner neil pedantic they had receivers greg hill they had big time defensive players like key to covington and chuck asset and i'm. I'm missing a lot of them but it was a great era. It was the a._c._c. and there was no florida state in the a._c._c. When bobby ross was making thing is run <hes> but maryland football was you know. Ross had a couple of top ten teams. The nine thousand nine hundred eighty five team came back is the preseason number one team team in the country in sport magazine. Now i think in the a._p. And the u._p._i. At the time i think they were ranked sixth and seventh respectively they opened up with penn state lost at home and game in which they fumbled like three times in the second half <hes> but there were memorable games obviously the game in the orange bowl and the thirty one. Nothing come come back against miami bernie kosar quarterbacking that team for twenty some years. It was the largest comeback in made in college football history with frank reich leading it. I just have a lot of memories and i have a lot of every you know every so often. I get excited about the prospect. Maryland football could get back back to where it was in the eighties with ross and in the early two thousands with ralph. That's what i think its potential is. It's in the big ten now. I don't know if they're pretension action. Potential is greater or less than what it used to be but it used to be that you could win nine ten games and play new year's day bowl you you know and and and be a consistent eight win or more a program and be in bowl games. Could you compete for a national championship under bobby ross and and ralph region will ross did it at georgia tech after he left maryland. You know he had maryland in the top ten. A couple of times is a really good football team but they were probably a step depth below if not to from national championship caliber <hes> but still it was a you know football which always took a backseat to basketball ask ball <hes> basketball will always be number one at maryland but football there for a period of time you know was a borderline top twenty five football program in the country country so it has the potential for that look at the recruiting area lock sleaze tapping into that he all of his relationships. He's beloved in this community by pipe parents and football coaches and people in the football community especially. I'm excited to watch maryland football and watched mike loxley build it <hes>. We're going to get him on the radio. This show will probably get him on the podcast once or twice during the course of the season as well but good for them to go back to a a uniform look that really reminds some of us us of what maryland football can be. I mean i know kevin plank built. You know put together all those uniform combos. I can't stand all that stuff can't stand the flag helmet helmet. I don't like all of the different uniform combos give me red and white or white on the road and that in that script turps helmet which always always stood out to was a cool looking helmet. Do you think it is now. You're much younger. Obviously i like no. I do love the turps helmet and it's and they still had the turps of and i feel like like as late as when i was there yeah ralph ralph had so i i always liked the churchill. I do love the flag helmet. Though i really do love the uniforms i can do without the fly down with love yeah all right anyway all right. I want to get to a conversation about trent williams since yesterday or since monday especially especially for for podcast purposes because we didn't have a podcast yesterday there've been a number of reports adam schefter reported. The redskins have been contacted by multiple teams but the redskins aren't budging. I had adam schefter on the radio show yesterday. He said look as of now. They're not going to trade him a j._p. Finley came out yesterday said multiple teams have expressed repressed interest. One of those teams is the patriots others include at least two other a._f._c. teams. Jason lockenfora tweeted out from c._b._s. Sports yesterday that it's only a matter of time before trump williams straighted and then this morning the e._s._p._n. Dot com reporter that covers. The dolphins reported that the dolphins have reached. How about trump williams. There's one other report that i said that could tie into this. John mcclain who covers the houston texans was saying that the texans are going to be looking for a left tackle and there possibly shopping around you to j._v. cloudy as part of their attorney so let me guess let me two things real quickly and then i want to get to the crux of of what i had planned to talk about today okay number one schefter believes that the redskins could get a i plus many used a couple of cops. <hes> the gary zimmerman trade back in nineteen ninety four from from minnesota to denver <hes> brought a first second and sixth jason peters was a first second and fifth or sixth also <hes> i believe in two two thousand nine duane brown basically brought back a second and third <hes> for houston seattle got a brown and a fifth rounder so you're talking about recent recent deals and you know my good friend goldie pointed out that you know it's hard to use a lot of these past deals because it's always about circumstance and always about context text and he's right to a certain degree although it's not always about that i've had enough conversations with people like charlie casserly and bobby beth over the years to know that when they start thinking trade they're looking for a comparible trade to to gauge value. They're looking for an analogous trade so in this particular situation whether it's the team approaching the redskins or the redskins talking about it you know inside the building at ashbourne they're looking at deals like jason peters deal or the dwayne brown deal the circumstance and the context is different. I entrust me. The redskins have leveraged because multiple teams are interested and somebody may get desperate here. Is we approach the season that's part of the context and circumstances well. I personally have said all along. I think they can get a i. I think they might be able to get a i plus plus. I don't think they'll get any less than a second third and a conditional and i would be looking to trade him now. You mentioned david clowney. You threw him him into the conversation. I do not think the red skins want jud avian cloudy. I also think that houston might require more than just trent williams for cloudy clowney. Tony is younger and he is clearly a top five havoc wreaking defensive player in this league. He's also a bit of a problem. He also wants a new contract racked. He's also only got a year left on his deal tripp scott to it may be a straight up player trade if they talked about it personally if i were houston. I'd want a tad more than just trent williams at thirty one years old but i don't think the redskins are gonna make that trade for this reason. The redskins are not a team that piles up on areas of strength like the giants did with pass rushers and defensive lineman. They're you know in you know basically from two thousand seven through two thousand twelve <hes> and they believe the strength at their football team is jon allen doron pain ryan kerrigan ryanair anderson and hopefully montanez sweat so i don't see them adding a player that they're gonna have to pay big money to next year <hes> versus getting a i in a fourth back from someone else or houston so i i think the clowning thing thing won't happen. That's my i don't know anything. That's my my gut feel on that. I do think if the red skins play this right they can absolutely us what i believe have to be a legitimate leverage. Some of you have tweeted me saying they don't have any leverage guys thirty one years old. He's been suspended in the past and he doesn't wanna play for them. You guys are wrong once as you get multiple teams that are looking for a player of his caliber at a position that is very difficult in the league to fill with a player of his caliber. You've got leverage. They don't have to do anything number one number two <hes> is that again. He's he's really good at a position that is very hard to fill and three. You've got many teams many teams that are going to be interested in a player like trent williams the redskins. It's going to have a lot of leverage especially if a team loses a key player here over the next month or two and they get desperate. I i really believe that <hes> anyway right <hes> so i had albert breer on the show today and before i get to that <hes> i was going to respond real quickly. I did this on radio for those that have heard it. I'll go quickly for those. Who haven't you'll get the gist of why i wanna lead into this albert breer conversation <hes> and why i want to continue with the trent williams conversation listen. I got a tweet from stephen. He said enough about trent williams kevin. I want to hear about the guys that are going to play for this team. Not the ones who don't and my answer to stephen is this you should care about trillions situation. It's very important to this franchise right now and to the future of this franchise. It's not more important than in the development of joint haskins. It's not more important than you know. If this year hopefully is the last year of the bruce allin era but pretty much more important than anything nothing else right now first of all his holdout so far is another reason for many including players coaches around the league and perhaps even players. Here's in their own locker room to think that this franchise continues to be dysfunctional dumb dishonest stupid stubborn auburn. You know these are the things that are going through. The minds of the rest of the league is they watched this trent williams situation from afar and it may be going through the minds of players in that locker room whether it's true in this instance or not perception is reality and the perception is that the redskins have fucked this up just like they fuck everything else up. That's the perception right now. Personally i really would love to get to the truth on this one but i don't really know what it is. I actually believe in my my gut that while the organization is totally stuck on stupid in this dysfunctional my gut is is that this situation has a ton one of nuance to it a ton of it and that more likely than not this could be as much on williams as it as it is on the redskins if not more if not more more now. It doesn't change the fact that most think that this is a red skins. You know gone wrong situation again. It's the redskins being the redskins again and and that continuing narrative is hurtful to the organization in hurts their chances to attract a future high quality general manager it hurts their chances to attract a future high-quality coach it it it i think it has been hurting their ability to attract really league good players through free agency. We went through this before. Landon collins is here for one reason more than any other and that he wanted to be sean taylor. It was his dream to be sean taylor in washington. The discussion of trent williams shouldn't end also and and doesn't need to end and it should continue because it's important want to look at this team without him especially with a rookie quarterback that needs him. Adrian peterson said you know he's uncomfortable that he's not as calm that all the quarterbacks. They need a left tackle. We saw what happened to doron christian last week. It was just a preseason game. They're gonna chip. They're going to bring a tight end over. They're going to help against a really good pass rusher on that left side you know if if they've got donald penn out there and he can't handle it but my god teams impacted by his absence and then lastly this is an interesting situation to continue to talk about because it's going to be another evaluation point for bruce allin. How does this thing get resolved. Does it get resolved with a trade and if it does did they get a good deal. Did they settle for too little did they. They screw it up. Did they come rosters for players. Instead of acquire picks. The team needs to handle this right. The team needs it's to get this right. It would certainly appear at this point as if trent williams. They never played for the redskins anymore and he's not they should be trying to trade him. They can totally take the public stance that they aren't going to trade him and that's the right public stance to take you don't wanna look desperate. You wanna be patient on this thing. This may go right into ended the regular season but they need to handle this one right because if they don't handle the trade part right or the this doesn't get resolved and in a way in which people view the team favorably like hey you know what they made up pretty well. They got a first and a fourth versus what they only got a third nece conditional seventh or they got a third and a player. We've never heard of you know. This is very interesting to watch play out from from my standpoint. It is <hes> i i asked the following question <hes> on the phone lines today on the radio show it i would you prefer that they trade him and get a first right now or would you prefer that somehow. This miraculously works works out. They forgive forget. It's coon by between trent williams in the organization and he's back suited up for philadelphia. I want the first round pick. That's what i want. I want to build for the future. Trent williams. Mrs games trent williams has been suspended twice. The redskins have been loyal to him in the past asked when he wasn't necessarily reliable with the back-to-back suspensions. I personally want to move on from trump. Williams and i like trent and i think he's an outstanding outstanding player <hes> but i think the teams done a lot. I think the team's been loyal to him <hes> but this situation has gotten out of control and i'm ready to move forward. I was ready to move forward award before this at the end of last season now as it relates to what's going on here. I had albert breer <hes> from monday morning quarterback on the radio. Oh show <hes> this morning and thought it was. I thought he said something. That was really interesting. It caught my eye because caught my ear <hes> because he he mentioned another injury jury here. I asked him basically. What do you know about the trent williams situation. How does this get resolved. Listen to this exchange between albert breer and myself off. I'm busy said trent may still be exploring his legal options. You know the situation ultimately turned out to be benign fine how i'm just curious. I don't think it's just that though once was there i would just tell her that i. I don't think it's just the the cancer scare. There's some more stuff there and i you know look i mean. I think that there's that that piece of it like you know. It's just the i hesitate to kill the redskins over this because there's natural distrust right <hes> medical staff and players. There's all over the league right like that's a common thing players like a lot of times. Don't think that team's medical staff have their best interest in mind <hes> that you know there's there's no obvious reason for dicey pushed out their push through things <hes> you know that may not be good for their long-term well-being and so it's all over the n._f._l. But i don't think it's just a cancer scare. I think there was it was just one event. I don't think we'd be here. I just think get sort of a string of different thing that have come together to put everybody in this situation and it'll be interesting to see where it goes next boy. I'd like to follow up on some of that stuff. We gotta run. We gotta we gotta break right now that we gotta get to but that is interesting because if it's beyond just the cancer scare what what was the other event you know when you say exploring legal options that almost implies aglet hit hit it was uh-huh i again like these things are pretty common but a lotta times it can be one one thing and then the next thing and then the next thing and before you know well it <hes> you know you're adding. You're adding one to the next the next you know look player in the players by the time it could be. Well you know this. I sort of straw breath back but there was also the lesson that i think this is one of those all right that was really interesting to because he brought up something that. I don't think that most of you considered. I'm didn't anyway maybe you did and that is that it's more of a ah then just the cancer scare the benign tumor because the conversation started off with him saying that he believes that trent williams you know in his in his people are still bill considering legal action action which to me means they think the redskins were somehow negligent with some sort of medical issue which led me to you know the whole cancer scare the growth on his scalp and it turned out to be benign and i asked him you know ultimately. It was a benign tumor. Why would they be considering legal options and that's when he got into a lot of this other stuff and he mentioned the shoulder and look trent williams has had a hell of a lot a hell of a lot of injuries right over the years a lot of injuries over the years ears and so i just googled shoulder and trent williams because i was trying to pinpoint when this was trillions remember also had a bottle broken can over his head in honolulu during that trip to the pro bowl. You know four or five six years ago whenever that was but the first thing that popped up was interesting and i think this is what a albert brewer was referring to on thanksgiving day last year. The redskins played the cowboys. If you recall it was the first game after alex smith got hurt in the houston gain. They're six and four. It was a huge thanksgiving day. Game redskins lost the game thirty one twenty three and trent williams was back in the lineup after missing during the previous three games following thumb surgery now. That isn't the shoulder get to the shoulder in a moment first of all. Let me just mention like i can't remember that much from last year. Last year was an utterly forgettable season after alex smith's horrific injury and the six and three we start. It's like the rest of it that final month and a half was painful and forgettable but anyway i went back and i read this story from the post written by korean copeland on the day after the game day after thanksgiving game. <hes> trillions made his return thursday after missing the last three games following thumb surgery but he left eighteen eighteen t stadium in an ambulance now when i read that i'm like i sort of remember this but why sir read the rest of it the six time pro bowler left the thirty one twenty-three loss to the cowboys for one play and then returned the following series after he fell to the ground awkwardly in happened to braces fall with with the injured hand which was in a cast. He played the rest of the game coach. Jay gruden didn't mention williams is injured during his post game press conference that could pissed <hes> williams off and a team spokesman later said he left in the ambulance for precautionary reasons the team said he got hit in the chest on the play that he got shaken up and then there was also the mention of the the of a shoulder of bruce shoulder later on in the story as it relates to trent williams so he's coming off three games following anthem surgery. He leaves a._t. Stadium stadium in an ambulance. He's got a short sore shoulder. He felt felt felt to the ground awkwardly braced just as fall with his injured hand. <hes> had a chest got hit in the chest. Had a bruce shoulder in the game and williams doesn't even mentioned i mean <hes> gruden doesn't even mention him during his post game. Press conference is injured. This may be another piece to all of this. I don't know if it's the a major piece to it or not and it could be another shoulder injury from another period of time. That was the first thing that popped up that the shoulder shoulder from the cowboy game now he's had a he had a minor procedure on his right knee early in the season last year last last year in september he went. He underwent a minor procedure on his knee right. After the new orleans game uh-huh which was the bye week i think and it was reported that it was a minor surgery nothing to be overly concerned about but this guy had a lot of injuries in maybe ultimately he doesn't like the way a a lot of 'em because it sounded like albert breer was building up and said it was he said quote it was a string of events <hes> and he said that the cancer if it was a one off off event that we wouldn't be here right now so it sounds like it sounds like trent williams had a bunch of issues that he for whatever reason doesn't trust the team's medical training staff combination of both in the way these things were handled but anyway i thought it was interesting that breer mentioned that if it were just the cancer we wouldn't be here and that there were other things including a shoulder and then you go back and you read about the cowboy boy game and you can find all the other injuries from last year man. He's been injured a lot and then of course my good friend doc walker who cracks me up this time of year because all he wants to talk about is you know the last four spots on the roster and who's battling for those last four spots and ends up spending thirty minutes a day on players that don't even make the roster i love him though and i'm saying that with tongue firmly and cheek because he is my favorite police said today. He said i'm listening to she. In this morning morning talk about trent williams in all of his injuries. He's totally devaluing trent for any team listening and i'm like wow that's a compliment that other n._f._l. Teams might be interested interested but i guarantee you that somebody if they were listening at the park. This morning is like god. Damn it will. They tell chan to stop talking about how injured injured he's been. We're trying to get a first for this guy but anyway. I don't know i don't know any of the reasons. I don't know how it's going to play out the the conversations that i had that i shared with everybody here. On the podcast two weeks ago is that this was about trent williams having this growth two years years ago and the team not communicating the seriousness of it and the irony of his ultimately it turned out not to be serious like it turned out to be benign. He's okay the scare while it was must have been terrifying turned out to be you know unnecessary in terms of of the the of the growth on his head being benign not malignant and he's going to be okay. I i know i've i've heard some things that he's got a big old scar on his head and he's not happy about that. <hes> <hes> but somehow some way the urgency of it wasn't communicated to him <hes> but again like i think about this and i think about all the health care that's available to these guys whether it's through teams or through their own <hes> you know access and some of this should be on him but again. We just don't know all the details. I mean we're going round and around on this thing. That's why personally. I love him to trade him. I would have done it before i heard about all of this a love for the redskins to get back a i in a fourth breath right now i'd run with that and you start to build for the future because really it's going to be more about twenty twenty one and beyond who's who's running the organization and who's coaching the team etc one last thing before we leave you for the day <hes> jay gruden and said yesterday the colt mccoy still not one hundred percent you know and there's the possibility he won't play in the preseason game thursday night and then he waffled with j. p. finley questioning being him on who would start if colt doesn't go sounds like case i want dwayne haskins to get first team. Reps against the bengals of colt mccoy's not playing if we're not going to go the traditional hey the projected starter is going to get a quarter or a couple of series and then case keenum who's really in legit competition with colt is going to get the rest of the quarter and maybe some of the second and then we'll get dwayne if colts not playing i want dwayne haskins to take first team reps. He doesn't let's start the game you could go one series with case one series with dwayne one series with case one series with dwayne and then ever all the starters sit and maybe dwayne continues after that with with the backups so he can get more reps but i wanna see him with the ones i think they need to take advantage of these opportunities to see how much progress he has really made and i know they learn a lot from that in practice but these competitive environments i liked some of the stuff i saw last week from dwayne haskins. I thought he looked looked like he was up to the occasion. I thought he looked competitive. You know i thought he bounced back from a couple of bad plays well. I wanna see more of that but i want to see it with the ones against the bangle ones. I'd like to see that. I don't know about you guys. <hes> i get the sense that he's far behind case in colt <hes> it would be hey great to see what that looks like with the ones on the field because if colt really is banged up and can't go that is interesting man you know the we're talking about you. You know a long period of time. I know he's taking reps in practice but they don't want him out on the field darius guy same thing guys apparently hasn't been cleared the playing a game. It's been over a year percents he tours a._c._l. Against the patriots now it's been like a year and a week <hes> anyway ajay did say that starters are going to get more work doc <hes> on on thursday night which is good news all right <hes>.

I mean we've been doing a franchise focus series up at the website and We're just previewing every player. There is the preview every team. There is to preview it. It's been a lot of work. Been doing a ton of podcast. Obviously here and then and then elsewhere it is. I mean the off season is over no more off-season for dolan don't want is busy I it's draft season now. Ross were were still in that like couple week period before people start to remember that fantasy football exists at least the casuals the the the water cooler type of people. We are still a couple of weeks away from that. But i would start to think that our listenership is going to go up here in the next couple of weeks that would be a roth. I guess that's fact like ghana's guarantee we are two weeks away from. I think twenty eight of the thirty two teams having their first practice. Exactly two weeks from today so get excited now. Don't get excited for that. Get excited for today's guest. I mean we brought in the big guns for two weeks before. Nfl training camps. Open jason moore who you all can and should follow on social at jason f. f. l. one of the top ten most accurate fantasy analysts three years running and of course co host of the award. Winning fantasy footballers podcast. You can check those guys out. They i was doing an amazing job even his background. I mean we got joe with a ceiling fan and a flyers banner in the bag even used the ceiling fan. Ross because it makes it look like my hat spin on this podcast. I am sweaty guy. They're like i would do it anyway. It you're you're in south. Carolina makes it look like you're spending dude balls south carolina. Oh it's terrible. And i'm in what they call them down here the bonus room and it's above the garage so of course. That's the hottest part of the house. So yeah but the sacrifices i make for this podcast. Now i gotta i gotta get jays interior designer down here to help me out here. Maybe if we have a little success playing fantasy this year. I'll be able to re overhaul this and get myself a nice fancy background but this i come as i am. Ross i'm coming the per cobain's dude. That's what i do. That's what i do on this podcast. Got it jason. Thanks for coming on the show man. Yeah happy to be here. This is actually the best time of To join a podcast. Because right now you've got people that are going to win the leagues at an a couple weeks. You get the casualties coming in Who are there just a little late. They're always a little late to the party. And the people listening right now. Those are the ones that are like. Oh i get the extra info that they don't get they go on to win the lease to really good point. I'm curious before we can say what we've been doing. The last couple of weeks is having analysts like yourself. Come on and tell us some of the guys. They're higher on and lower on then the consensus or where they're going and some baseball draft's which i love because doesn't really make sense to just talk about what everybody agrees on right. Like what what what's interesting and what drives value for me and our listeners. Is the people you disagree with where they're being drafted right now so I love it. It's perfect timing. I have one question before we dive into the players though. How thank for you jason. Or how much does it make a difference to you that we will have. Preseason games will have reporters at training camp. Does that get you excited. Defeat that gives you an edge or did you think maybe you had edge last year when there wasn't preseason games and we didn't really get very good reporting from training camps. You know as much as we wanna fluff up the information that we're watching foreign in preseason games. I don't believe it really changed things one way or the other inside You know it because we had better information earlier. We didn't need the preseason. We got an edge or because we're getting pre what matters to me is just that it's normal. It's a you know every the expectation for everyone in the world now is we have football this year whereas last year without the preseason I think a lot of the the casual leagues the The work leagues those types of things. That just didn't happen last year because there was so much going on and then i mean they're not even playing per season we don't know is is the ball to get kicked off on time and now it's like this is just this is just another. Nfl season. so. I think the excitement and the joy is raised. The edge is really any different. Well said let's dive into some of your guys that you're higher on and lower on. This is interesting. Because usually i let the guests and then joe jumps in and i might not have an opinion. Maybe i do. I have an opinion on the first guy. So let me hear why. You're higher on amari cooper than others. Yeah amari cooper is my wide receiver eight this year. I i think he is screaming value right now because he's dropping outside of those first couple of rounds where you can load up on running backs and then grab a you know in the fourth round a guy that i think is going to be wide receiver. One first of all you've got offense obviously The dallas cowboys i think. Are that great fantasy team where you know they're gonna throw the ball a lot you don't believe they're gonna have great Defensive put up a lot of points with daqing toe. You know you saw. Unfortunately for two short period of time. Last year i was on pace for seven thousand dollars or something Asinine because of the setup of the cowboys And what's happened. Obviously ceedee lamb. Cd lamb has come to town my favorite prospect last year. He looked great. And so now. Everyone wants the new hotness and usually and fantasy. That's where i find an advantage. Is that the new. Hotness is not mutually exclusive of the vet also being awesome but people tend to want to be more on cd lamb than amari cooper. So i i love cooper's value this year so you only point i'll make here. Is he had ankle surgery after the season. And it's it's like still bothering him. He's not going to be ready for the start of camp. Might go on and i. i just doesn't sound good to me and j. He might end up being fine and this might be overblown but they usually try to downplay it when it's especially star players injury i've got my i've got my look. I don't provide much value on the show jay. Okay that's my former player radar. Antennas up like you know a guy having ankle surgery in january not being ready for training camp in august having irritated something pop up a little bit a little bit wondering what's going on there. Joe well i mean. That's the thing that needs to be monitored. Here is just the ankle. Because as jay mentioned the new hotness ceedee lamb he is routinely getting drafted ahead of amari. Cooper like dot is not something like oh. I can't believe i was in this draft. Cb lamb went ahead of amari cooper. That's a fact. Now like ceedee lamb. I'm looking at Some nfc best ball ten data wide receiver twelve over the last three weeks to wide receiver. Sixteen for amari. Cooper cooper status has to be watched in training camp and the preseason. These are two good things when you have somebody with questions with injuries. Like mark cooper because. This is a super symbiotic relationship. He and dak prescott feed off of one another in his career dak prescott averages three hundred and seven point five passing yards per game in games with amari cooper he averages two hundred and fourteen point nine passing yards per game in in games without amari cooper and amari cooper averages sixteen point six fantasy points per game with dak prescott and twelve point nine fantasy points per game with any other quarterback so both of these guys should be happy the other ones back but a little bit surprising right. Now that i feel a little bit better about prescott status than i do about cooper status heading into heading into training camp that it's something again rossi said we're two weeks away. The cowboys are actually one of the first teams to report. Because they're playing in the hall of fame game so we're going to keep a very close eye on amari cooper but overall if he's out there and practicing just at some point i don't need them out there the first week i don't even need them out there the second week but he gets ramped up in august and it's like well he could have played in the preseason we chose not to. I'm gonna be okay. Drafting amari cooper. Because this guy over the first five games of the season last year with that prescott in the lineup heat significantly out targeted any cowboy receiver. He had fifty two targets from prescott a thirty seven cd lambs number. Now that doesn't mean ceedee. Lamb hasn't progressing gotten better. But i agree with jason. This is a guy where you can get some value here. It is important to check on the status of that health. But on the flip side that helps might pushes. Adp down and if he turns out being fine by midway through august it's going to be a value. Pack all right so jay. Let's get to the bengals because you've got a couple bangles on your list. You've got joe mixing your higher on but jomar chase your lower on so let's talk bengals and you can talk both those guys at the same time. Yeah yeah so. I i like the bengals offense to a degree. I think that there is value to be had there for fantasy. You look at joe. Mixon what he did before. Going down injury last year Once they got together you know weeks. Three four five six he. He ended up being really great. Now you've got giovanni bernard gone and while giovanni bernard was not like this great player that Was just stealing everything. Away from joe mixon. He was he was on the field. He was you know he was getting targets. And now i feel like he joe. Mixon has no choice but to be true belco in there. Just aren't that many of them out there. Because of the injuries of the past joe mixing his dicey. I mean joe mixon is a common bust candidate. Because we've seen it before Because he's been injured before. And so i think that you know when i look at the. Adp he's going Versus the guaranteed workload. He's going to have to have There's there's no way that if he plays a full season he doesn't out produce his value. And this is a guy that we've seen do it. It's not like we haven't seen him be a top ten fantasy running back already The office of line should be improved. Joe burrow for the whole season and to start the season joe burrow is probably going to be you know when it comes to his legs and mobility and you know maybe he gets off to a slow start. You're going to rely on the running game more. So i like the value of nixon. My on our show i am. You know the other two guys are just madly in love. March as as the world is I find myself always having to fight against that And really it's not that i believe to march as bad by any means He's great talent obviously is reason he was picked number five overall. He's played You know all already with this quarterback and everything looks great. The problem i have is. I have been in drafts. Where he's going in the fifth round where people are taking him as a as a locked and loaded guarantee and he could very well in his rookie season for a slow start. You know borough coming back from injury. He could very well be the third in targets. I actually have him personally. Projected to be the third in targets on this team. Now there's there's plenty for him. Aj green had one hundred four targets. Last year did nothing with the might expect he. He can do more. But when i look at the wide receivers the rookie wide receivers. And i can get devante smith late for free And you say okay. What's the percentage chance. The devante smith or jamarcus scores more fantasy points this year. Even if you believe it's tamar chase like i it's it's a very close call Just based on you know the the market share that devante smith is going to have with you. Know other wide receivers. They're of note And the round disparity is is one of these guys. I'm getting for free in one of these guys. I have to give up a really good veteran known commodity at wide receiver. In in those in those rounds joe yet will joke. I and former muscle joe. Mixon what i'm gonna do. Here's i'm gonna pull out. I'm going to pull a noel gallagher. I'm gonna stand on the shoulders of giants for for this one. And i'm going to use our guy. Scott barrett at fantasy points has a fantastic stack hold ex. Fb expected fantasy points. So joe mixing in his six starts first and foremost if you're buying joe mixing you're buying a discount here because the fantasy community hates joe. Mixon does not like him at all. Oh burn me in the past. He's been injured. You know he's been terrible. The last couple of years and i understand that you know but maybe i was on the flipside but anecdotally twenty. Nineteen thousand nine joe. Mixon was a league winner down the stretch if you managed to weather the storm early in the campaign and then in twenty twenty. Check this out in oryx in six starts. He had twenty opportunities twenty opportunities nineteen opportunities thirty one opportunities thirty two opportunities and twenty one opportunities at a note that's attempts plus target so that is massive uses last year. He was the rb eleven fantasy points per game but by expected fantasy points. You had nineteen point two over that span. It was second behind his christian. Mccaffrey in dalvin cook last year. So there is a massive role and that was even with giovanni bernard intoe so. I am buying joe mixing in the second round It's an easy. Pick for me. If i need a running back as a matter of fact i'm a little word. I have too much of joe mixing at this point. I'm starting to diversify in some of my best ball drafts. Taken najji harris take up. Take a step on digs or calvin ridley to to get into the wide receivers. Darren waller to get into the tight end position. Because i have so much joe mixon cost because i think the opportunity is going to be there. I do want to push back a little bit. Under as only because i do think he's really good borrowing once again from scott. Scott barrett's expected fantasy points metric. Ag green is leaving behind one hundred and four targets. He averaged seven point. Zero fantasy points per game on those hundred and four targets but his expected fantasy points. Twelve point one that was by far the biggest negative differential differential differential in the entire nfl. Ross you and i have talked multiple times on this podcast about how gone awful. Aj green was last year. The numbers bear it out and even if jomar cheese just gets average production and gets that hundred and four targets he would have averaged twelve point one fantasy points per game which ranked him roughly wide receiver forty last year. I think he's better than that. Obviously the bengals due to they took number five overall his. Adp is wide receiver twenty-five the reason i think he's not super appealing at that price is because i think the bengals are gonna miss the ball around and it's not necessarily the devante smith relationship that i'm looking at but i go down like twenty four to basically two full rounds in eighty and tyler boyd. Sitting there and tyler boyd team is the seventh and eighth round pick and this is somebody who with joe burrow last year burrows. Eleven starts tyler. Boyd averaged sixteen point two fantasy points per game that would have been the wide receiver fourteen over the full season. He's being drafted the watterson for thirty six right now. So i mean there is a massive value here. I i'll take all the bengals receivers. I'm cool with them but the guy. I'm going to end up the most with tyler boyd. Because he is so freaking cheap right now and this guy who has produced at an elite level. Joe burrow accord. Let let me ask you real quick. joe Who do you think's scores more fantasy points. This year tee higgins demarcates chase. And i'm gonna tell you. I'm looking at my projections right now. Why twenty four and wide receiver twenty six. So there is a serious edge. There have very difficult. Time separating those two. But i'm going to go with chase just because i love the prospect profile but again you know you're looking at t higgins. If hayes was in in town t higgins would be a third pick. I mean what with eighty green vacating those targets. So there's value there as well. I mean i like this team in general for fantasy. But when i'd like team this much i generally gravitate towards the cheapest option which is going to be tyler boyd j. I don't know what kind of thoughts you have on e higgins vis-a-vis tomorrow as i'm interested in europe we've got on our show between us Me and the other two guys. They're on the chase. Item on the higgins side. I think the ball's gonna be spread around pretty evenly. It's gonna i think they're all going to have a little bit of value. I agree with you. You take cheapest option. I think the reason why march is so exciting and is the first one off. The board is because of the unknown that like oh what if. He is an odell beckham rookie year sensation. And just comes out and you know i don't. I don't think you see a pathway. For for for tyler. Boyd or even higgins to be some top ten wide receiver Whereas people see that with chase. But i mean is the guy who didn't play football last year And is coming in these still a rookie. so i figure this season two three years down the road. I think this'll be march offense. I just don't think happens. Rookie season. y- i. I kind of lean towards you. Jason missing a whole year. We'll see that that's a lot of time to have missed. And we'll see what that offense line and with. Joe put this way. If i was on linked in jobs right now and i was hiring. I don't know if i'm loving. Jomar chases resume as much with sitting out a whole year. And i'm tyler boyd guy. I've always been tyler boyd guy. It does feel like people never really give him the credit he deserves. Maybe we should all hire people. Like tyler boyd unlinked in jobs because they will help you hire the right person for your role. Did you know every week. Nearly forty million job-seekers visit lincoln. Post your first job for free. Lincoln dot com slash feast that's linked in dot com slash. Feast to post your first job for free terms and conditions apply. Thank goodness by the way for lincoln because my front page story. We just hired somebody We would not have been able to do it without lincoln. It is hard to hire people right. Now let's get to. Let's get to a guy. I think our guest week didn't like him either he. He lives like a mile from where. I'm sitting right now. Why do you not like chase. Edmonds and you're at arizona cardinals guy right j yes sir. I am here in the valley chase. Edmonds is someone that. I think he's talented. He's electric. he's not who they want to be their primary running back like they just don't they don't want him to handle the load They don't want him to be their goal. Line guy and cliff kingsbury coach. I know he was supposed to be an is touted as such. But you know he's really. I don't think that he is as good as he's supposed to be You look. I believe a chase edmonds in his career has one carry inside the five They brought in james conner and he's going to be the guy with the new upgraded. You know rodney hudson at center rushing the ball inside the five up through the middle. And so barring an injury to james conner which granted is Known to happen from time to time I don't think chase edmonds is going to be what a lot of people are drafted him to be. Which is some sensational running back. Who ends up with the seventy five percent of the market there. I think he is flat out the backup back. He'll be on the field a lot. He'll catch some balls which is valuable for fantasy but again this is a running back. That's going like in the fifth round. And when i look at Someone that i i. Just don't believe he's going to get the utilization that fantasy managers are hoping he gets the wide receivers in rounds. You know in round five and round six. they're just astronomically better than a crap shoot hopeful upside running back In chase edmonds. I'd rather take james conner late in the draft and get you know eighty five percent of what you got from kenyan drake last year but kenyan drake was back in the first round. Pick not an eighth ninth tenth round pick. So here's the thing with connor. I think zero are being are going to be all over. James conner this year because nobody wants james conner. James conner is a ninth tenth round. Pick you know. He's he's had a lot of problems with injuries in his career. But again this is like when we're talking the marci argument kenyan drake leaving behind two hundred sixty four touches. Not as a lot and chase edmonds has never had hundred carries in a season. Now do i think chase edmonds is going to top that number this year. I do Just because i think they chose edmonds over drake They brought in connor on the cheap. I think edmonds is going to get a bigger role than he's ever had The one thing about edmonds. Though that i can't get now normally i would be on the board with with saying we always talk ourselves into these ascending runners. There's a big role common and we ended up over drafting them. I have started to see chase. Edmonds slip into the sixth round with regularity. And i don't really have a problem with that adp. Now that's where i'm bid. Drafting guys wide receivers like tight ends. I think he can dabble in the mark. Andrews doubt scattered there. We're talking you can get a jalen hurts. Justin herbert russell wilson in that range. Quarterbacks are kind of fruitful there and then of course wide receivers are super superbeet so chase edmonds landed in what. Jj zacharias has kinda dubbed the rb dead zone. A where he in like. Mike davis and myles gaskin or coming off the board. I don't know if that prices that ridiculous though like last year chase edmonds was a top thirty six weekly running back eleven times eight of those times. He was a top twenty four running back his car. Eighty or be twenty eight so in half of his games he was he was a top twenty four running back and he's currently out coming off the board. Rb twenty eight now. The problem was and this this would be. The big argument is of those eight games in which he finished as the top twenty. Four p p are running back only two of them came as the top twelve running back so this is a guy who had much more of a floor then. He did a ceiling. The question now becomes the chase edmonds asenjo place where he has a massive ceiling. I don't necessarily think so. I don't think jason. Thanks so either. But i'm not really sure. He's being priced at his dealing. I think is price is very fair right now. it's not somebody. I've gone out of my way to target. But he is going to catch the ball. Connor does have injury problems. I don't have a problem with somebody saying they prefer connor. But this isn't like the big gap between running backs Whether shouldn't be as big as we've seen in years past so i'm a little less a little less likely to say chase. Edmonds is a bad pick than i am to say Say i think he's just fair. Pick given the caveats check him out on social media at jason f. f. l. obviously he's got the great the fancy footballers dot com. Pansy footballers. Podcast so good to have you on jason's been a couple years. Thank you so much we really appreciate.

I'm do that for you all right. Let's go ahead and go beyond the boxer here to start things off down the lines. Give you a couple of picks for tonight's action and then preview the weekend and the head so let's go beyond the box store with a look at this red sox and indian series lotta questionable decisions for the indians in this series some extremely extremely ill advised sacrifice bonds. Some questionable pitching changes from terry francona. The red sox had thirty three at bats. The runners position in this series series indians only had twenty one. This is a tired indians ballclub right now. You're they kinda. Rode the wave of taking three out of four from minnesota getting that went win on monday against boston the walk off win with the carlos santana homerun after that they showed some fighting game to give them credit for that they got buried early on in in that game but this kind of dot on wednesday and this is an indian team that has had one scheduled off day since the all star break. They got an extra off-day with the rain out against texas at home but then played a double header and then played the four games against the twins so physically and emotionally drained ballclub right now to make a big run in june july to get back into the race and then now here in august. You'll play teams like the angels the astros the rangers the the twins the red sox now they take on the yankees and the mets. We're going to stay in the same hotel playing in the bronx and in queens seven seven games over the next eight days they do have monday off but a very unique situation remains baseball. You spend three or four days of the city and you move on for the indians here eight days in a row really nine days in a row in the same hotel there in new york so that's a real big challenge. I'm jay real different kind of setup for them here this week playing against the yankees and the mets so this is an indian team. I'd be very worried about here over the next seven games tmz their gas a little bit. They need a chance to catch their collective breath when they get back home. After this set a series of new york they play the royals so maybe that's a spot for them to catch a little bit of a breather gives some guys some days off stuff like that but keep a very very close eye on the indians here over the next week as far the red sox go you know they're still gonna hit pitching still a question mark over all. They're not a playoff team. They're not going to make the postseason this year so obviously they're a little bit of a tough team to gauge is right now because they just don't have the same level of incentive that they usually do what i really want to look at. Here is the indians and just how emotionally and physically draining this team is they've got eight or nine relievers in the bullpen at any given time and yet they still wind up having a tired bullpen so you know we'll see how they do here at yankee stadium william in a series. I'll talk about a little bit later on in the show speaking of the a._l. Central the minnesota twins with their series with the milwaukee brewers as the teams traded bullpen disasters astor's in the two interleague games here ryan harper and then josh ater on tuesday so twins blow a lead hater gives it right back to them twins win that game then on wednesday sergio robo he blows the save brewers pickup that win with a three run shot in the eighth inning what the brewers had a lot of chances the runner in scoring position early on in that game yesterday couldn't get the big hits instead. The twins were busy hitting. Solo home runs off of gio gonzalez. The twins are kind of in a similar boat to the indians in that. They've played a lot of close emotional games. They felt that pressure of the indians catching up to them in the division that eventually passing them on monday for sole possession of first place by half a game now the twins back in first place a half game but still you know the twins are not accustomed into being in this position and really ironically enough neither of unions because unions have really dominated this division over the last three years to the point where they haven't had head to play meaningful baseball in the month of august the twins playing meaningful baseball in august now for the first time in a while as well so kind of watched them a little bit here to do they do have a much easier assignment. They go down to texas and take on the rangers who are not playing very good baseball right now so easier spot for the twins but again both the indians and the twins playing a lot of important games here of late. Maybe we get some down from both of those teams here. In the near future. The national swept the reds red's tremor power blasted in game three of that series which i had stuck with my fate of power. I guess i got scared off by his performance against the cubs in his previous start gave up nine runs in four and a third only struck out for the nationals here in this series fourteen for twenty three with a runner and squirm and they were ten for fourteen eighteen in the finale yesterday as they banged out seventeen runs. The nationals bullpen did make game one interesting. They had a big lead kind of gave it back. Hug on for the victory. Couple nice wins on tuesday and wednesday. The nationals look strong again. You'll want soto is okay. Everything came back fine with the the reviews his leg injury as drew cabrera swing and good sticks and they picked him up with a nine eighty p._s. And a limited sample size nationals look good and the reds really don't you know the bullpen has gotten a lot better or the rotation. Excuse me has gotten a lot better under west johnson they have the twenty ninth ranked think fifth in terms of bullpens in the second half. They've also had some issues in the e._r._a. Department with their bullpen as well so that's been a a problem and the starting staff what well they've been better. There are a lot of guys in that starting staff that do have substantial platoon splits with they're pretty good against righties and really struggle <hes> against lefties. There are limited team right now. I mentioned that they were the highest team and second half batting average on balls in play so the offense could probably regress a little bit as well. The reds are in a tough spot right now back to seven games under five hundred and i'm just not sure they'll get over the hump the rest of the way but again the twin or the nationals excuse me looking very very very strong here. In this series the rangers took the first two from the new york madison my brave second-half just season win total bat looking very strong right now dallas kyko getting through six yesterday figuring out the third time through the order penalty a big deal for them because once again this atlanta bullpen even though they've won two games here so far in this three game set shane green gives up runs chris martin mark melanson giving up runs green with a decent inning and last night's escape but again struggling in game one. This bullpen is still a mess. They just can't get is comfortable out there. Maybe they have to start putting green and melanson some lower leverage situations elevating guys like nukem back up into some higher leverage roles luke jackson same thing for him. They're trying to figure this whole thing out. Brian snickers vickers trying to put it all together but fortunately for the braves. They've won the first two games here in this series and as you look at this one for the mets. I think the mets have had their. They're fun. I think they got back into the race. You commend them for that. I think they're going to kinda hit a little bit of a wall here now and one of the big reasons. Why is the injury to geoff. Mcneil led the team in f for versatile players played three different positions for pretty good sample sizes of innings so far this year and he's been one of their better defenders overall for all eight. Three ninety two weighted on base average top fifteen in major league baseball. I know some guys yesterday. We're on the braves probably because again again keep in mind that when guys are in and out of the lineup their numbers reflect that because they've got models that spit out expected runs and things of that sort based on the lineup that's out there well without mcneil the mets going with that ahmed rosario in the leadoff spot. He's got like a three nineteen on base percentage. That's a mistake from manager. Mickey callaway neal's a big loss offensively for them. He's the table center the guy that gets on in front of pedal on so this is a problem for them going forward. I'm fading the mets here today. I'm backing julio tehran tonight against the mets and and marcus stroman but i think the mets have had their fun. I think they're big regression. Get it like they're a team that you wanna look to fade while this mcneil injury is happening and mcneil a guy with a long injury history throughout his career as well so hopefully this sam string doesn't linger for his sake but this could be something that does last a while for the mets. We're quickly thing to point out here from the phillies and cubs series. The cubs are the only three runs in this series shut down by jason vargas in game one aaron noah twirls gem in game two. They were down very big very early in that game so they kind of punt in a little bit <hes> in game two but still only scoring one run their off of noah and the phillies bullpen jose cantata struggle struggle fourteen in game one for the cubs. They wasted that start then they get shot down by noah. We'll see what they do today against drew smiley but this cubs team you once again and really this has been the story for the central in general so much inconsistency just. I don't know what i'm getting from the cubs day in and day out. I'm just not sure offensive offensive. They've got so much personnel. The pitching staff is talented but also pretty inconsistent kind of a jekyll and hyde pitching staff there for chicago. They're hard team to back because you just don't know what you're going to get day in and day out from this team. You know too much talent to be struggling to put teams away in the n._f._l. Central here but you know we look at these two games and we kind of understand the reasons why all right something. I want to talk about here today and i'll tie this all together at the end best lineups against what i considered to be elite velocity of ninety five plus miles per hour. This is looking at results per baseball savant per stat cast data on pitches his off ninety five plus miles per hour the dodgers the best lineup in baseball at four zero nine. That's woven a four nine mobile weighted on base average yankees at three. He's seventy eight twins three sixty nine. How about this one. The anaheim angels three fifty six so the angels are very good job against elite velocity file file that one away in the back of your mind cardinals three fifty one against elite velocity they hit literally nothing else other than fastballs but they hit velocity pretty well a three fifty one woah in that split and they do face louise casio here this weekend so maybe that's something where you wanna look at eighteen total over a game over i five over something like that but you know the dodgers yankees and twins not a big surprise at all the angels and cardinals hitting velocity does surprise me a little bit as far as the rest of the top ten goes to mariners at three fifty one frames at three fifty nationals three forty seven the mets three forty six and the padres padres at three thirty nine so the padres a team that does swing and miss a lot but they swing a mess a lot on off speed pitches and breaking balls. They will hit fastballs. They will hit high-velocity fastballs as they ranked tenth in wilbur in that department so again best lineups against elite velocity pitches of ninety five plus miles per hour dodgers yankees twins angels cardinals or the top five mariners braves nationals mets padres six through ten the bottom five white sox blue jays marlins reds and detroit tigers the best lineups on elite velocity of ninety five plus plus miles per hour from right handed pitchers only got ninety five plus mph pitches from right handed pitchers dodgers at four zero seven yankees three seventy five twins three sixty four the angels make another appearance three sixty four and this is particularly interesting because because they've got a fairly right handed heavy lineup they do have shohei otani but beyond that a lot of right handed sticks. They're relying on to do some damage and of course that it has been the case. They're a top ten offense against righties. <hes> not so good against lefties then the nationals at three fifty four the bottom five four of these will not surprise you the white sox at two fifty seven blue jays to sixty reds to eighty seven marlins to ninety seven again had elite velocity ninety five plus mph pitches from right handed hurlers the bottom four white sox blue jays reds and marlins the team that ranks twenty six in weighted on base average against pitches of ninety five plus miles per hour from right handed pitchers the houston houston astros at three o seven how about that and elite lineup no doubt about it from a talent standpoint simply elite they are twenty six in weighted on base average against right handed pitchers on pitches of ninety five plus miles per hour and this is a very right handed heavy astros lineup so that is part of the equation here and a lot of the guys the astros other right handed batters against right handed pitchers take kind of a right center opposite field type of approach. It's harder to drive the ball that way so this does kind of make some sense here in that a lot of times you hit for power by pulling the baseball. The astros do like to go to right center and right field a lot of their right handed. Bats do like like to do that again. This also speaks to how right handed heavy that astros lineup is this is particularly relevant. If the astros run into the indians in the playoffs playoffs now. Do i think the indians hit the astros pitching staff. Hell no not at all but we could see a lot of low scoring games against clemenger against bieber. <hes> you know obviously for the rest of the rotation. They don't throw his heart begins clever and beaver. I'd be looking for some unders in those types of matchup so keep this in mind with the astros sure when they faced guys with a league velocity from the right side they are not a good lineup at all since definitely worth considering here as as we go forward best line against elite velocity of ninety five plus from left handed pitchers. These are extremely small sample sizes here so take this substantial grain of salt. There's very very small the cardinals and the best in baseball four seventy eight but only thirty eight results there so remember i mentioned the cardinals were fifth if in wilbur on elite velocity but their name a four seventy eight war against left handed pitchers in thirty eight results so let's skews the numbers a little bit. It's a very small part of the sample size but against righties. They're probably not a top five team as we just talked about their. Probably you know seventh or eighth something like that so keep that in mind. This is a small sample size but it's probably enough to skew the data just a little bit dodgers at four forty five once again. Only only thirty eight results there the mariners three ninety five with sixty results twins three ninety three with ninety five results the yankees at three ninety one with a hundred and thirty five results one of the biggest the biggest sample size off results against elite velocity ninety five plus from left handed pitchers so that one's probably big enough to have a little bit of to it so the yankees very good against elite velocity from left handed pitchers the teams that are not the pirates to fourteen sixty eight results marlins thirty five and fifty two results giants to forty five eighty seven results tigers to forty six six and fifty two results the as to sixty six with forty two results so sample size much much smaller here the primary take away the yankees are very very good against lefties and the giants aren't what they big well. They fairly decent sample size there of eighty-seven results in play now something else i wanted to look at your your team weighted on base average against left handed sliders and curve balls pretty good sample sizes here so these are numbers you wanna keep in mind might again team weighted on base average against left handed sliders and curve balls the astros number one at three eighty six so they don't hit high velocity ossie from righties but they hit virtually everything else in particular hitting lefties very well with sliders and curb balls so we get a left handed pitcher against them that likes to the throw a lotta sliders and curve balls probably not going to have a lot of success in that particular match up diamond backs three sixty four the as three forty three how about these last two the tigers at three twenty nine and the rangers at three twenty three so the tigers and the rangers fairing pretty well against left handed breaking stuff off with those sliders and curve balls the bottom five here again these are pretty decent sample sizes overall the reds at two thirty five royals to thirty seven and giants to forty four mets to forty eight and how about this one the chicago cubs at two forty nine so the cubs not hitting lefties well this season in terms of sliders and curve balls so something for you to factor into the equation and i'll tell us together here in in a couple of minutes finally team against right handed sliders and curve balls red sox three thirty seven yankees three fourteen astros three return dodgers three. Oh six indians three oh five the bottom five here and he's a very big sample sizes padres to forty nine royal oils to forty nine mariners fifty one as two fifty six reds to fifty six so the as don't hit sliders and curve balls well l. from right handed pitchers. This makes sense. They're very right. Handed heavy light up padres right handed heavy lineup royals their best sitters sitters are right handed mariners right handed heavy lineup to a degree. What are their best hitter are right handed so what i think all of this means to me is that this may be my strategy next year instead of digging deep into the sabermetrics instead of looking at things for me regression analysis standpoint standpoint. I may just look deeper into the match. Ups based on pitch types play a lot of i five. You're regression analysis. I it's too finicky nikki and you know i'm starting my wife last night about the tough baseball season that i've had and look i'm picking it about a fifty percent clip which isn't very good especially junior playing favorites which is why i'm down such a decent amount for the season but she asked me why you know what's what's not working. What's not playing laying out the way that i would expect it to and as i started thinking about it in talking through it with her look when you talk about regression analysis right guys got a three thirty e._r._a. In a five ten fifteen okay in line for negative aggression you know it. I know the betting market knows it but keep in mind ride that when you talk about negative progression three earned runs over six innings is a four fifty e._r._a. Is that a bad start. It's not great but it's not bad. I mean it's called a quality start for a reason right well. That's going to be negative regression with a three thirty e._r._a. And a five tenths dip any <music> game line within your over three thirty is negative aggression so in that respect. Maybe i'm barking up the wrong tree. You'll a lot of these things used to work and maybe some of these things are priced into the line as some of these things are taken out <noise>. Excuse me by the overnight line movements that are there but i think it's just finicky. I think the expectation of aggression is fine but the degree korea regression is completely unknown so this year because things haven't worked out the way they used to. I've been a challenge myself into looking at things is a little bit differently and it's too late in the season for me to do it now with football season coming up with all the planning that goes into that and all the additional work that goes into that. It's it's too hard for me to pull a complete one eighty now but i think this will be a thing next year. I think i will look a lot more into matchups based on pitch type and success zest on particular pitch types based on pitcher handedness because you know i think that regression analysis degrees of aggression are too hard to pinpoint so all of this stuff team logo against right handed sliders and curve balls t. mobile against high-velocity all the numbers i just i gave you. I think that's my plan for next year and it will require some more infrastructure. It will require. You know doing some similar research. Maybe putting together more spreadsheets stuff like that but i think this is going to be a better plan of attack looked back lineups when they're going up against their strengths or look to back pitchers when they're going up against lineups don't succeed in certain types of ways because all this data is out there i would. I like to think that smart organizations and the majority of them are smart now when it comes to analysing the numbers. I think it's smart. Organizations are going to look at these types of splits wits and tell their pitchers. Hey look you know you're facing the padres. You're right handed typically your fifty percent fastball guy. We want you to be a forty percent fastball guy or thirty five percents fastball guy in this start attack them with sliders and curve balls and that should be the plan of attack heck. That should be what teams do so. Maybe that's the trick here. Maybe it's to think like you're doing a scouting report. Maybe it's two-point you put yourself in the mind of that team of that pitching coach of that battery of how we're going to attack these hitters you know if you're facing the astros and and you throw ninety seven throw fastballs men pump fastballs at that lineup. Maybe that's the way to have success when it comes to betting baseball so i think maybe i need to take more cerebral approach in terms of looking specifically at the match up at the personnel and trying to figure out how these pictures going to attack these teams. I think that's exactly what they're looking at. I think that's the way that i need to look at things as well so this will be a learning curve for next year but this is what i'm going to look at on a game by game basis. Regression analysis helps i. The expectation of regression is a good starting point but i need to piggyback that. I need to add more data to it. I did do a little bit more again. Well yet from a matchup chop. Standpoint is going to be my plan of attack going for next year so as i mentioned in my picks and tips piece today i gave a lot of consideration yesterday to shutting down the article. We're digging a deep hole. It's not good for me. It's not good for the site and it's obviously not good for my readers either. I'd like to incorporate some more of this stuff. I will be looking more at these notes running for baseball savant queries as time permits. We got with baseball season coming up. It's hard to make this complete. One one hundred eighty degree change so what i'll probably end up doing is look at these teams that are really good at this. Look at these things that are really bad at this. You know based on the match up. That's coming up and just have lists. Have spreadsheets have things that are out there that i could access very very quickly. They make it find someone to help me scrape this and do it from an automated standpoint but i think that's the plan going forward is to do more of a match up analysis m._l._b. Handicap looking looking at strengths looking at weaknesses and expecting these teams that should be smart enough to interpret the data to do what needs to be done and then hope that the pitchers execute properly so it's going to be a complete change for me. It's going to be something completely brand new. I think it's still going to give me an agile agile there in the market because i don't think a lot of people are going to be doing it in this manner but that's my plan for next year and i'm gonna try to incorporate some more of this the rest of the way but this is kind of an epiphany tiffany. It's kind of a come to joe boo or come to jesus baseball jesus moment here where i need to change and that's what i'm going to look to do here for the rest of this season and the upcoming season as well aren't so down the line to take a look at some moments that have happened dating back to tuesday here well some joe ross money hit the board for the nationals <hes> again there matchup against the reds joe ross getting a little bit of a bump now out there in the baseball community pretty throwing his curveball more. He's had good success good results with it as the nationals made that usage change jeff zimmerman tweeted about it others tweeted about it see a fan graphs bumps sometimes from that it was after ross assert will see if he takes the money here in his next start which i believe comes on sunday. If not monday sunday saw some marlins money on jordan yamamoto against dustin may that wound up being a loser there in that one that gallon took heavy money flipped into a favorite at chorus field yes jeff hoffman and colorado rockies saw fayed of you say kukuchi and the mariners that was against the tigers and matthew boyd gucci and the mariners a winner in that one boy knocked around again coochie much better this year against non a._l. West teams like night night and day better a huge difference there <hes> so that was something that's kind of stood out to me. A little bit didn't do the article on tuesday. <hes> maybe that would have been a play that i would have. We've had going against matt boyd there with you coochie but in any event keep that in mind for kukuchi starts against non division teams the rest of the way heavy jack flaherty money hit the board before the cardinals against the royals and glenn sparkman not a big surprise there heavy astros money on zach granny against the chicago white sox that one <hes> what's what's again not a big surprise wednesday we saw some heavy robbie ray money against kyle freeland fade freely that chorus field diamondbacks bullpen winds blowing that one for everybody that was on the arizona side saw some stephen strasburg money last night against trevor bauer that was clearly the correct side of the nationals rolled to a seventeen to seven victory clayton kershaw money drove him up into a three dollar favorite role against the marlins and the as our hernandez yesterday not a big surprised there and that one getting seeing these big favorites take money very very often here get big favorites very profitable major league baseball over the last several years sausa- sean reid foley money for the blue jays gets colby allard and the rangers at one did not work out as the rangers victory in that one wade miley ali pumped up into more than a favorite for the astros gets ross detweiler and the white sox that was one rare instance where a big favourite lost as the white sox came away with that victory there in the plus two sixty ish range heavy mark gonzales money against edwin jackson and the tigers yesterday that did not work tigers came away with a victory there in that one over the mariners and left-hander marco gonzalez thursday not a ton going on here as of yet seen some yu darvish money kind of leak into the market against the phillies andrew smiley sauce marcus stroman and mets money early on. I disagree with it. I'm on the brains tonight. In the minus twenty ranch julio tehran's been very very good this year and also the mets without jeff mcneil. I really worry about them. Offensively don't love stroman with the mets in in that poor defense so give me the braves tonight as one of my place some heavy alex young money on the diamondbacks the giants and derek rodriguez. I'm on the i five five and that one i have no interest in back in the diamondbacks bullpen one in the first five online but ahead at the article and the show going. I'm sure the first five or online is out there now. I talked about minus one fifty five for the money line in the article. I run line. Maybe a little bit better to reduce the juice. I do like alex young and i don't like their rigas in that matchup otherwise pretty quiet thursday out there in the betting market. Thus far are bunch of serious talk about here as we head on into the weekend we start with the indians and the yankees 'em put code chad green and the first one errands volume master here up to knock on the second. One zach police act james paxton on saturday. Hey mike lemon juice d. c. Samatha on sunday the indians little bit tired with that schedule you gotta fly ball guy in getting the start here tonight that that concerns me quite a bit and then command guys with maybe a lower margin for error in errands delay anzac police on friday and saturday. I do like tanaka a little bit on friday night with a splitter. The indians have not hit changeups well all year long so like tanaka a little bit against volley there on friday of course we'll see what what that price looks like in that one the astros in the as you got anibal sanchez mike fires tonight got a piece of that one check out my tips and my picks and tip spy's overpaying overpaying the book dot com to find out what that play is berliner and roark on friday to determine at chris bassett on saturday zak cranky brett anderson on sunday europe kohl on the shelf for the time being but the astros integrate position to give him some time. Let him he'll up. There's a tough series for the as though sanchez ver- lander grinky all great off speed stuff from the right hand side berliner with elite velocity as well. This is a tough match-up for oakland. I would not be surprised is if the astros take three out of four and a minimum in this series so we'll see if there are two prohibitive for price standpoint but i do like the astros in several all of these games here in this series cardinals and the reds michael walker sonny grade tonight and wainwright lewis castio tomorrow miles nicholas anthony these funny on saturday jack flirty alex would on sunday cardinals giving three right handed pitchers in the first three games that can shut down there right head right handed heavy lineup. They get a lefty on sunday alex would jack flaherty has been great of late. That'll be overnight line mover there on the cardinals on sunday with flair taking money against the left in alex wood so maybe get out in front of that one is what i would recommend miles. Nicholas has been better of late so we'll see the reds. <hes> coming off of that sweep against the nationals didn't play particularly well. Let's see what they do against the cardinals here in this series brewers and the nationals adrian hauser patrick corbin on friday jordan lyles animal sanchez saturday chase anderson eric feddie on sunday jason anderson. It's been great here of late. I may look to play milwaukee on sunday day. We'll see how much bullpen usage they have. In the first two games of this series wiles versus sanchez pretty intriguing not a whole lot here on friday night <music> but getting we'll see what sunday sets up looking like for that series dodgers into braves and man. We got some good series here this weekend on my mic saroka friday eight hundred mike fulton every saturday dust and may max freed on sunday shame on major league baseball because on sunday night baseball the cubs and the pirates. Nobody wants to see that as far as this series goes. You know a big spot here for mike fulton avenue. Obviously we'll see how he does against a very good lineup kent on my eight. I has struggled here of late. Dustin man max free looks like under game on sunday. Perhaps dodgers forty games over five hundred now heading into thursday's thursday's action finally the padres and the phillies chris panic vince velazquez friday denison limit zach f. one saturday joey lucchese justin vargas on sunday sunday padres getting a lefty on sunday so that's a decent spot for them. We'll do casey on the bump for them. They don't limit steam probably comes on saturday. The padres do to avoid aaron nola wonder if the i five is a good look on i five under excuse me on friday night with paddock and velazquez velazquez pitching a little bit better here of late right handed heavy padres lineup. He's terrible against lefties. Maybe the first five under consideration here for friday lots of stuff on today's show adamant banged the book dot com via email to sign up for the notes for the program. I think i sent out mondays. If i didn't i will do that with <hes> the notes for today's show but again talked about a lot of stuff great weekend baseball and also some food for thought on how i'm going to change my personal handicapping you have see with christian pena on friday betters fox and kyle hunter on monday brian blessing ralph michaels on tuesday will figure out the rest of the schedule as it closer to the return of the daily shows of banged the book radio out there for me.

Aj hinch was weighing the decision to start someone who had like sixty five innings in the outfield during the year is Garrett Cole the nationals and when Joe Ross got through the first inning and it was a huge cheer in the Ballpark in Washington because they knew that he was stepping in and it's all jammed up thankfully and from doctors says as long as I have motors no none this coming down my arms or anything you don't actually a whole muscles that surround your neck just completely locked up in spasm and so for me it became impossible to do any menial tasks whatsoever if we if we go to game seven Max game seven so with all that is the backdrop Joe Ross stepped in to take Shire's place on the mound in game five on ESPN radio to the Astros won on Saturday evening the series to all turning into a essentially a best of three moving forward and we looked so much to the the Left Center for Alvarez and the move for the Astros pays off his very first at bat has he hits a line drive the left side urgency basis He was the underdog going into this game in the second inning he faced your Don Alvarez who his starting this game was an uncertain the white zone voting and loaded up passengers only no parking in the white zone chilly at a baggage claim it is I take this and my hotel in Washington DC and I'll be making my way to Houston but I will be in a baggage claim later in the day at Hobby appears and he just stood up and he took the homerun off his belly dropped his pick that up and he saved the beer's what do you think wow that is meant that should be call that home run. I don't know if you're watching television but fans stood up as Alvarez is ball carried over the fence and he had a beverage in each hand I believe they were Chops Chevron the oil one and a fly ball hits a deep left field this one is deep and it is gone that is a Grand Slam Caro- two run homer in an early to nothing lead for Houston in Troy now you can expect absolutely respect the choices of the fan charisma going back Moore resnick John and it's gone hits out to left center field hinder aching ball hit high in the Air D. to laugh field and it's gone about ten rose d. back into the seats Carlos Korea has Centerfield Day game today was gained five Joe Ross on the mound really that was the end of hope for the nationals in this game the nationals dugout through that whole commercial break that followed they were screaming Atlanta especially after Ryan Zimmerman walked victor row bliss was at the plate and on that last pitch to Zimmerman his well Garrett Cole and his catcher first row of seats and the nationals or on the board it is four to one so for nationals fans in the ballpark there was hope on ESPN's top place that's impressive it was impressive top of the fourth inning Joe Ross was still on the mound and this happened to me the old the nationals dugout has exploded and Lance Barksdale the home plate umpire but the inning is over in double the Astros lead it is now Ford Dan Schulman with that call on ESPN radio joining us here in a bit Garrett Cole was on the and there is no doubt about this one George Springer with a two run shot to left and a little more insurance for the Astros now leading seven to one Barksdale from their dugout in the top of the night denning George Springer provided the coup de Gras and the three one on the way fastball crank took deep left field on for Houston and he was outstanding caring shutout ball into the bottom of the seventh inning chew and a fastball hits deep left center field deal with any seriously any long term damage here it's just a you on the sensory pinching the nerve and neck in the trash does win again they come to Washington down two games to none and they just mother the nationals three nights in a row and singular it goes Zimmerman three to strike free tall and now raw blaze can't believe it he thought it was high now Denardo and Cole coming off the it doesn't matter how many games you lose unless you lose for you always got shot unless you've lost four and and so that's what we believe in these games yeah I mean I think we responded well we had a challenge that we needed to me and we did the world series about trying to collect four wins I thought I executed really well tonight made a lot of good pitches I think we counted three mistakes and then get away with two of them and got away with one marteen Maldonado they thought that it should have been a strike three they didn't get it this is what happened with robots with three balls and two strikes whole sets the whole one win away from the World Series Championship Dan without reference. Of course Chris Singleton is broadcast partner so right after that final hour well paid off here's the to one and a swing and a fly ball to deep left center off the end of the bad gone a line drive home run spoke with Garrett Cole Guys Lose Games wanted to the world series you come to Washington you win all three Guanzhou score them nineteen to three senior team he's especially in a series against a quality team like the nets so we're not gonNA take anything for granted it is nice to go home you know I don't really WanNa talk about a second game I'd like to wrap this up as soon as possible and and we've got Justin verlander on the mound and that brings a lot of confidence to our clubhouse but there guys pretty good too so we're going to have to bring our best after a long flight we have a day off tomorrow we'll be ready to play on Tuesday but our but our confidence levels were going home to play in front of the one of the best crowds and Burland against Stephen Strasburg Astros Manager Aj hinch declared what he wants in game six we know how quickly things can turn where momentum can shift in you know a little bit of a cushion and somebody fresh gonNA come in and pick this up because that's what postseason baseball is all about so focused on keep making quality PICCI's and we just try to keep the same process that we've been keeping all year you know just keep one foot in front of the next answer the bell did you feel about how you executed tonight neck take informed hours I can really helps aside independence being alleviated or alleviate the pain from that neck nerve and then you know just live on the corners all night making a lot of quality pitches kept pressure on on my thought attention at seven o'clock this is one hundred miles per hour fulltime tencent I mean our bullpens been pretty lockdown wasn't going to give into Zimmerman wasn't going to get into robots there knowing that we had easier than that but Thanksgiving is right around the corner and if you're hosting things can get stressful butcher box can help this holiday season new customers You know these these next two games are are going to be tough thanks thank you Carlos Correa talked about the Astros Getting Swagger Wien it is a box of one hundred percent grass fed beef free range organic chicken heritage breed pork and more ship free right to your door it

more win adamy nationals outfielder talked about the teams villain mentality when they hit the road will it it doesn't it doesn't go close I mean I think we played really good baseball the last few days and we're just going to keep our same process we're here playing game six of the world series so we're GONNA fight we're GONNA finish this thing before we laid off Dan Schulman one of the best aspects of butcher boxes how can longlines and crowded aisles at the grocery store and like their beef chicken salmon pork and scallops you know the Turkey you'll be serving from butcher box was humanely raised Khameini didn't get a call to Zimmerman three two and then got a call the next three to you guys are one win away from winning the world series but how considering how this series is gone how close is it yeah we got three months to to rest and then show up against string training so let's get our swagger back let's play let's play with passion let's play like we wanted and came with steak at came with chicken and of course it came with Bacon because I love Bacon that's my favorite my son's favourite is the steak and every time we get a box Turkey plus twenty dollars off your first box that's butcher box dot com slash bt and for a free Thanksgiving Turkey plus twenty dollars off your first box it's the way it's meant to be with no added hormones or antibiotics ever loved the meat I get from butcher box the last box I got came with hamburgers and the Ballpark last night Dennis screen listen but they are who we thought they work and we let him off the Hook L. and swept them in a big series I think we kind of had a little chip on our shoulder Kinda gone in there and wanted to kind of prove something so you know hopefully again we're going back to their butcher box dot com slash btm has been calling play by play during the world series for ESPN radio and the first thing he asked for takes stress out of your schedule this holiday season son Ed butcher box dot com slash BBN today and get a free Thanksgiving the last three games we really play like we won the championship and we gotTa Win One more game in game six in Houston on Tuesday night it'll be justice we're we're looking to do that again here's nationals manager Dave Martinez we had our backs against the wall all year long nobody thought we could we're going to be here riches it feels like a regular game these are serious serious of the season we need to play like it we need to to give everything we got and then in off this here's our we're going to be exhausted interest doesn't get the credit he deserves and I guess when your name is Joe Smith they think you're you're just another guy named Joe Smith but you know they're really good down in the bullpen and even though they don't have in Washington Alex Bregman it wasn't quite as long as I think is earlier trip around the base was twenty eight point seven seconds but he knew that home run was hit with that we we definitely playing in front of home fans but I I don't know I think we played the villain pretty well as well I think you know if I have a lot of conversations and when we went to Chicago who we think he is and what they got out of her Keady in game four was great and you know that bullpens really good it just doesn't get a lot of attention because we'll hit that would be the Houston Astros at this point yes they are who we thought they were it's very appropriate to come to Washington to outscore them nine Ryan Slam on Saturday and Carlos last night pointing up the stands EZE rounding the bases they absolutely walked all over Washington whereas can get you or the catchers can get you it's it's one of the best lineups that we've ever seen one through eight internationally park one through nine in an American League Park Bob houses and you heard the words but they didn't really feel like they were genuine like there was really belief behind them I don't I can't think of one player on the he said to Jose Altuve Jose we need to get our swag back we need to go back to having fun and pointing and doing all that and man we saw some of that and these three games in themselves and you know and I've been together and we both been in the clubhouse together and how many times did you hear them say before game three hey all we gotta do is take two eighteen to three A. and let's start with the three like to only allow the nationals to score one run in every game just so impressive Garrett Cole is in total domination by the Houston Astros in games three four and five in Washington the middle of this world series and I was thinking about this on our drive home from of a lefty Aj hinch has a lot of options and You know when you look at their lineup you know springer can get you or correa can get you or Bregman can get you were last night in team who doesn't feel confident to and you know what like they haven't been at their best Tampa Bay took him to the limit and they didn't hit very much against the Yankees but they're still a and you're right the this is the team that won one hundred seven games this year and I love it Carlos Correa told reporters after the game he told him that when they were flying from Houston to Washington Janki teams I covered how that experienced by the third year became weaponized like that became a real thing for them but there was no panic in any situation because they've been through every enough that with everything they've been through here they are still on the brink of another world series championship they're just a great team yeah and and I you know I was I think back to the I remembered something that happened before the game yesterday tell the story about George Springer when you walked into the Club House yesterday so you and I it's kind of a long narrow hallway they did and and what I was impressed about and you and I've been around the Astros a lot in recent years and we know they've been champions before and we know how good they are is they're unwavering belief limits area to the media and he turns around and comes out said George and he goes yeah and I said what are you doing like looking for some good Mojo by wearing brand New Jersey and he just went yup the other clubhouse when we walked into the nationals place I was trying to think back this last night I can't remember a pre-game announcement that was three let's just get it back to our place or hey we've won four out of five a lot this year and it didn't feel hollow like there are times when you and I have said and managers offices have been before game six tomorrow night and you know what Bregman fell back and had an offer for maybe he's wearing Springer Jersey in the clubhouse but it's it's an interesting group and Bradley's and interesting there's the food room where the players go on one side of the visiting clubhouse and then the main area of the clubhouses and we're kind of waiting in the hall we're GonNa go talking with Aj hinch and a few minutes and springer walks postseason scenario and they always held that confidence and you see the same thing the Astra's now you talked about the personality as you were talking I wanted you to in addition to the group because he's the quietest man in the room but the impact that he's had on springer has been extensive and I love that you know springer's got enough kind of little boy in him that solemn moment when he told us and you know again he said listen Joe Rogers pitched well in game three and he made some good starts down the stretch and yes all of that is valid or shocking than one we got from day Martinez were into his office and we're told and this was about four hundred five we're told the Dave is going to tell us something but we're and kept on walking and that's exactly what he was doing and he loves Bradley Looks Up to branly and two for three with a home run and I'll bet you anything that he's wearing a brand New Jersey into the food room and you can't help but notice firstly he's you know he's in a Jersey like three hours before the game and it's a brand New Jersey so he gets his food and I don't want to bug them that's awesome but it wasn't Max Scherzer and and truthfully the way they Garrett Cole pitched maybe it wouldn't have mattered right maybe Houston wins the game anyways but it's just such a shame you know you're like me we re for the story we root for the good game and part of the story was coal insurer and it's just too bad from a team level from a story level but most need the momentum can change in the short series it's certainly not ll possibility that Stephen Strasburg could outpitched Justin verlander right we saw that already in this world series and I still worry about the last three or six or nine outs or will they need to bridge the gap to get to do little and Hudson and Hudson Yeah and if you're sitting with the nationals now I guess you have to hope that the cortisone takes effect because it would be something and Aj hinch talked about this after last night's game back in DC on the way here from the plane I was studying to him hopefully we need to get our swagger back that we were getting hands and we're not even get hyped up I mean we're we're we're scoring ron he can put on another players Jersey and think that's GonNa help them like that's a fun part of this Astra's deem as well Oh unbelievable it was a very different experience pre-game in that she has ever pitched and he wasn't able to do it and all you can hope for is that he's able to come back in some role in a game six or maybe a game set game five that was an absolute stunner and look you know Dave Martinez he's a positive guy he tried to put the best face forty spinning it ahead and talking confidence about injury this year and overcame a broken nose this year and has pitched out of the bullpen and the play offs this would have been the big start of his career the most important game in to walk into the room with a single sheet of paper that has been very large Font Garrett Cole is the best pitcher on the planet are you interested he was out there a long time in game five that's one thing that would concern me if I were nationals fanny through more pitches in that game then he's thrown in any game this season and it was in a game when they were losing I'm too and if you had that moment and if that quarters on works on Sherzer what a Willis Reed moment right that we would have in a game not allowed to repeat it or tweet it or tell anybody about it because in official announcement is GonNa Come twenty-five minutes later that masters would not be able to start in having to get one last shot at it you know getting out rooting for either team but to see one of the games great stars in great competitor is not able to perform disappointing and it felt like Hudson was out there a long time it was completely out of gas now they've got an off day to day but will he be at one hundred percent effectiveness in a game six if they need them and you know how important and they've gotta hit they've got to get more than a run or to offer lander and and they're capable of that but they've got to get a little bit of a margin for air because Hudson has been so Strasberg's gotTa be good but not only does he have to be good he's gotTa get deep into the game like you can't be five innings of battling good it's gotta be seven innings of good they need it and they may need to hold some not wholesome guys back but they need to have some guys who as fresh as can be if they're going to win a game seven and you've heard the stories that's not necessarily with Garrett Cole I don't think this off season thinking I'd nice checked every box right yes I think he just needs devolve on a personal level for Max Scherzer who is you know even better than I do has been one of the great competitors in the sport over the last decade plus and overcame back and and he's remarkable he really is you know to do this in the on an American League team to to Face D. H. all the time during the season as he has wchs every the competitiveness he checks every single box in game one was a blip the only that he's had in the last five months assures her you know who knows right this could go as you know a thousand different ways and it's not beyond the realm of pills P- possibility Stephen Strasburg could outpitched Justin verlander but it happens every year it seems like once or twice during the world series and you understand him nationals fans are frustrated because clearly that last pitch Jio Ross I thought that was punch on the Chin for the team what do you think oh there there there's no doubt about it it was the word that comes to mind is solemn like it was eighty five million dollars a year two hundred forty five million dollars he's going to blow that David price record out of the water considering how well he's pitched and considering that the first number it's to a game seven I think air coal sitting down on the bullpen right or walking down there after the sixth inning or something like that you don't WanNa take anything to chance and what if the world series but it hasn't had that epic moment in a game it hasn't had the walk off for the ninth inning comeback or something like that maybe we're destined to get it late in the game seven who knows John Middleton the owner of the Phillies Garrett Cole is GonNa do so well this winter I kind of settled in my mind I think he's GonNa get seven years about one Scott Boras takes his clients into free agency he puts together these books right these stats in these notes about the players almost to sell the players ended in game seven in the ninth inning with coal insures around the mountain in some sort of you know it's high gamer a crazy situation may this series has been very interesting trying to compile a robot umpire or anything like that you saw the video I'm sure of the All Star game where they were the player was kicked out for doing it is something else and just watching it's the pitch mix and it's the command and it's the late movement and it's the power you're right he checked and it feels like there have been four or five six you know fairly agree GIS MRS each and every game I I'm still not yet on board with with you know the all I'm not quite ready to go there yet I think more testing needs to be done more improvement needs to be done but that having been said there there has been some inconsistent then if Max Scherzer able to take the ball for for the nationals and even if he couldn't take it as a starter you know it could be a Sanchez to according to in his age is a two teams that will invest in them you know what was kind of unfortunate though it last night was I hated all the conversation around the strike zone today about how in the world series of managers are always considered to be geniuses or idiots in last night when he made the decision to put your Don Alvarez I'm a factor man that's why he's making the big dollars and I'm playing straddle Matic Baseball Dan that was a great decision exactly and listen he'll make and the member of the game before when we were I we wasn't arguing he was just upset the the human empire kicked him out because he was unhappy that the robot empire punched him out curb all that looked like it was low but obviously according to the road was crazy like you're putting a d. h. out in left field the one of the biggest games of the year and he cited the fact that gear Kohl's more of a strike out guy and maybe wouldn't be as much no nobody can expect perfection but I think we have a right to expect a little bit better than we've seen in a couple of the games or the world series I was joking with Aj hinch use the exact word that he said but he was like eighty what are you doing yeah Blah Blah Blah and so aj firstly he doesn't miss anything as you know buster like he doesn't miss it or actually before yesterday's game before game five we were talking about game four and he really kind of jokingly made fun of himself for taking out or Keady and I can't agency there have been some Mrs in the World Series and last night like the nationals were angry last night really really angry and and you can understand why and and lineup and he was still uncertain about it when we met with him about five fifteen whether or not he was gonNA follow through and play Alvarez in the outfield but he makes the decision to put him in I gotTa tell you we forget that because of the wound up a seven to one game but if that had been called correctly they bring the tying run to the plate in the eighth inning and who knows what might have happened it it it sure it bothers me but I'm part of the plate also there's a delay like there's just like that you know quarter second maybe half second delay when the robot umpires in place before you see the strike call I mean and you know that already Merano the owner of the angels has been watching the World Series and frothing and Hal Steinbrenner the owner of the Yankees has been watching and frothing and the turn to roll bliss was a ball I hate coming down to that what about you yeah I do as well and if it's both four they bring the tying run to the plate in the eighth inning and then to be as great as he was in the playoffs again other than game one of the world series he's sensational he's he's in his prime and you talk about a moment like if if delayed once again for your thirteen purposes please listen to the baggage claim Martin Baseball Tonight podcast with Bossier only doing this and it's great like he totally tells us what he's thinking he's never defensive as at all he's really smart and I think also though but he doesn't he doesn't trick and when we ask them a question and we're so lucky to have this kind of access before the world series well we asked him a question before the game he says okay here's what I'm thinking these are the three reasons the and dot com slash pod center baseball tonight the PODCAST apps some some humanity in there in AJ hinch some and hopefully the you know the front office in above has acquired some or at least a little perspective in the aftermath of this I'm really curious if on Tuesday or Wednesday for that matter that the Astros win the world series what the post game ceremony will be like well on Fox because you know a lot of this stuff more often than not he knows what he's doing all right let's put a bow on the Astros PR disaster over the last week Stephanie Epstein reporter feel like either internally or from Major League baseball like there needs to be a little more disciplined here this was this was a horrendous week but also for Major League Baseball with his big signature event his his actions have been terrible and he's been such a phenomenal Jeff Llanos presence in that because in the past you'd always have the general manager talk but he's been an absolute disaster not only for the Astros in the last it's this left and right they really did and they heard a lot of people they try to discredited reporter and I hope they learn from this you know they've always retracting that infamous Monday statement that denied her report on former assistant general manager Brandon Todman yelling at her and other female reporters in the letter I think there could have been a little more meat on the bone and even this one it was very short very to the point but I this was a positive move but I still feel wrote we were wrong and I am sorry that we initially question your professionalism we retract the statement and I assure you that the Houston Astros will learn from this experience Dan God I hope the Major League Baseball Fox or a major league baseball on ESPN they'll have a conversation about that what that will look like on the victory stage I'm really curious about nine say oh sorry I was Gonna play you but they switch pitchers and now I'm going to take you out and he didn't have the heart to do that to your Don Alvarez and that's not out of the analyst so this came too late but they did it and I'm glad that they moved it forward yes this was a step in the right direction it was so you know h as right you can be a genius one day and you can be bombed the next day in the court of public opinion but he's he's GonNa be viewed as a as a smart guy relation it it'll be taught in schools of like marketing and public relations like as how not to handle things going forward because you know they they met no other choice right now and and that's what it feels like with the Astros had this been the first statement from Houston on day one then that would have been a positive thing thing that makes it a little bit easier is in Houston so at least it's not like there would be thousands and thousands of people booing in yelling at the time the world series only apologizing because you got caught like you should have apologized right away because you should have known this was wrong you're you're only doing this because you really have no it to us if you'll remember he said Yeah Garrett Cole strikes a lot of guys and they're mostly right handed batters and I don't think they'll be able to pull them but then he said at the end but also can you go up to interview does you know is a very analytical clinical kinda cold organization it's all about the facts it's all about winning bottom line it's all about winning but again you've gotta have handbook that's out of the human handbook and you know what getting him some at bats in game five probably will make him a little bit better of a hitter in game six rather than sitting for so many days so microphone in that moment does that make sense I am as well and I wonder if those conversations have been had or will be had in the next twenty four hours internally or not I think one the manager for the team they are where they are because decisions he made in building a baseball team but in the last week it's been such a mess I'm kind of curious to see if he's given for sports illustrated on Sunday tweeted a letter from astros owner Jim Crane in the letter krantz saying that he is apologizing gap seen on behalf of the astronauts station that's you know something that we may find out if they win the world series it feels like it would be unprecedented to me if they were to exclude a member of promise way too late and after way too many missteps and you know it's Kinda like when your kids do something and like is apparent here saying to them okay but you're on a member of the management or ownership team of the organization that wins the world series but These are complicated times we live in his you know and I I will see theis presented that's a disastrous pr disaster for them but you're right I wonder if rob Manfred and his people and Fox and they're people in the Astros if they've had that Congress see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be jumping into the numbers valuating millions of leases I wrote a column on Sunday talking about what I think is an extraordinary challenge in front of him because he's walking into a front office it with a group of people he's never worked home yeah that's that's bookie you know what's really scaring missing out on Geico for help with homeowners and renters insurance gyco makes it easy to sink but doc great you're not sticking around the bar is just getting started a week call today in with before and he has this unbelievably accelerated timetable under which has to make these really difficult decisions Houston travel safe travels to my friends I'm pretty sure I might be hunt what makes you say that the furniture is levitating on the ghost oh great okay we got a couple of two before we get to your list today I'm bloom will be introduced as new baseball ops for the Boston Red Sox all the while not knowing if any of those guys are going to be able to contribute much in in two thousand twenty as you move forward because of all their injury histories and I feel like and I actually had rose Ann Ambos Paulin keys Honcho on the show get up he tells us he's the head Honcho Himba how you doing this morning gentlemen how is everything now garner the beginning of the greatest postseason run by any pitcher in the modern era Madison Bumgarner who dominates him wildcard game they get knocked out and the next year that if you get one of them wrong three years down the road and might end up costing your job down the line I will say this I think he like you said is a brilliant executive but it was looked at Detroit to see how tough it is to recover from a Dave Dombrowski to time as general manager he did a wonderful job building winners in both locations but the Oh seasons in two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen when the regular season ended I thought the pirates were the best team in the National League but in fourteen they run into Madison general managers say this to me recently that you know you may not want to be the general manager of the Red Sox now you might want to be the guy who follows this general manager that's they run into Jake Arrieta at the back end of the greatest second half of any pitcher in history of baseball they get knocked out in the wild card game again We saw the Kansas city royals yeah he's going to be bloodied hi MS is I think he's terrific front office executive for nothing great things but let's face it whoever has his job it's ago the Neal Huntington out is general manager of the pirates I look back at his time now with Pittsburgh and you think boy what could have been like they were gotta be bloodied by the really difficult decision that's fair to say that the decisions are extremely challenging you mentioned five or six of them and you can't even afford to get one of those wrong those are all such big decisions they're not to trade bats what do you do jd Martinez de just right out these three contracts the veteran pitchers David Price and Chris Sale and Nathan Bloom is going to use in Boston but the media and the expectations of the fan base makes that place really challenging obviously having the financial resources is a benefit but fan base has been really unhappy there so I understand why the incoming president would want to make a change at general manager what he thinks so do I. V. Those two games both were in Pittsburgh that also comes with the curse in in the accelerated time lint and all the challenging decisions like you mentioned I'm bloom thirty six years old and news broke a few minutes the Andrew Freedman another guy that came from Tampa has done in in Los Angeles office he's not he's not want to world series there but enjoyed enormous success and I think that's probably the model that a free agent or before reached free agency and then of course the Chris Archer trade which at the moment that went down people other teams texting me essentially saying so many I wonder ads Cincinnati by two hundred five this is Hembo win the world series there the one where the rings they got to have the parade the pirates on the other hand a small market team they didn't have the parade and let's face it the last two years at that time in both of those seasons with the way they were using defensive shifting the way that they were they were you know measuring their their pitch framing they're so far ahead of their time the book hundred percent all right let's get your notes the first about Lance Barksdale who strike zone was a real topic of contention on the field in the seventh inning the wake if you will that that he left Detroit made it so challenging for them to rebuild now that they're still the very beginning of that even though he and he's been fired from his next job so we saw how the wild card format the wild game ended up dooming them in both in both of those instances because like you said that you could have made a very reasonable argument they were the best team in the national in Houston favor further Barksdale called five strikes on pitches that our model gave less than a twenty five percent chance of being called a strike for context on that number defined by a lot more ugliness and the last two seasons than anything else with with the cubs on you know sort of ascending during that time in the cardinals now have have done so and even the reds now they've really been sustain that because of how fast the game speeds up and unfortunately the division has gotten so much better around them and this is just an opportunity for that organization to hit the restart button because this year is that two years they traded Andrew mccutchen the most popular player in the franchise they traded Garrett Cole to the Houston Astros because they know that coal wasn't GonNa signed with them there's games dating to last year the longest streak of its kind in the history of the fall classic routines had won six consecutive games three times previously in the world series further the I five aims of this series have been decided by twenty six runs that is tied for the second largest run differential through five games in world series history only the nineteen sixty series between the pirates words what are the pirates doing and now todd glass now and you know the other parts of that most of those guys like card games sort of proved to be their undoing but those two trades in particular will really sort of be the nail in the coffin from the Huntington dot time in that position even though I think it should be remembered for a lot more good things than bad and if you're wearing it to hide thinning hair you may not have to anymore you may not know this but sixty six percent of men lose their hair by age thirty five sixty six percents the Yankees produced a more lopsided result in games one through five and Garrett Cole was absolutely dominant last night as I was talking about with Dan Schulman he is last night he had a day to forget behind the play or have some numbers to put behind it he missed four calls on to strike counts most by any umpire in a game this postseason three of those is the third largest gap of its kind in the modern era Randy Johnson was plus three forty in two thousand one in Sandy Koufax was plus three thirty five in one thousand nine hundred sixty five in forty nine innings but that number is even more staggering when accounting for his walk avoidance Cole has struck out three hundred fourteen more batters van he's walked me to forty five I talked about that with Dan seven years thirty five million dollars a year what do you think I was gonna say eight for two eighty I'm taking the over only four of those were called in Games one through four of the series combined and you've got a couple of world series auditees the road team has won seven consecutive world baseball sort of chronicles that and I thought it was a really good read and showing just how far ahead of their time they were in the advanced nature of their front office but at the other you know it's so challenging loss and you don't have to take snake oil pills or gas station counter supplements because hymns offers prescription solutions backed by science no more waiting that sounds pieces in Tampa and Garrett Cole has since struck out like six hundred batters and they got really you know fifty cents on the dollar for them so I would agree with that as well not only the begin with because of some challenges that they have and they don't spend any money that's not going to change anytime soon so if you're a pirate spends is you have to buck up for the next few seasons pardon the Pun the last which today right now while supplies last see website for full details and safety information this would cost hundreds of dollars if you went to the doctor or hair loss skin care and other wellness supplements for men thanks to Science Baldness can be optional hymns connects you with real doctors and medical great solutions to treat why two guys turned a weird solutions do nothing when they can turn to medicine and science the solution for hymns dot com a one stop shop wow okay he's GonNa get paid like no pitcher ever had and semi those numbers because as always I'll steal them when I go on checked every box goes into free agency including the playoffs buster gear Cole has recorded three hundred seventy three strikeouts this season in two ballpark people waving red towels the Red Sea parted and there come the nationals as they have for weeks now in their navy blue alternate unit warms and it certainly seemed a little bit I don't necessarily say it's off brand because navy blue is in the mix but in their big moment on the biggest stage at the biggest time in there review and prescribe you what you need and then the products will be shipped directly to your door order now my listeners get a triumph of hymns for just five dollars world series you're GonNa wear your classic uniform well as we all know players are superstitious and the nationals have been on a roll himse go to four hymns dot com slash buster that's F. O. R. H. I. M. S. dot com slash buster for him dot com slash lapped and I understand why this is a time for fresh clean start but there's GonNa be some really dreary days ahead for a fan base that yearning for a winner and that's that's already a group that's really packed out stadiums roams or awkward in person doctor visits and you can save hours by going to forums dot com so easy just answer a few questions a doctor the red which seems a little bit appropriate considering what the national has been wearing yes absolutely and buster and choice we kind of fear into cap talk mm sane at Liberty Zane who says the uniform team wears has absolutely no impact on if a team wins right butts can agree it was a bad idea I gotta tell you at the world series this weekend we've talked how you did the Washington nationals logo I went to the team store and I got to franchise history to come out in anything other than read just to look a little weird to me so I mean how that doesn't happen very often rhyming typically get to the area come alive their their team in the world series for the first time in franchise history and it's a sea of red everyone on that platform and in those trains wearing red get out to the I did take note of the fact however thinking historically as we always do the first alternate uniforms ever worn in a world series actually after they lost game three if they would change back but I think given how players are because like hey they got through the wildcard game they got and they stick by it so they've been doing it the whole playoff so I figured they're going to continue doing so even though they shouldn't today turn bad ass black uniforms with giant N. A. Y. so there's a long tradition of this yeah I gotta say and I was thinking about that different nationals world series caps in your honor and I was very proud and I told people that I was waiting in line with some of the fans were there and they're like are you nationals fan I'm like do do they decide to throw something off do you have to stick with this the whole while through and you know every once in a while you'll see club do this we're here for this world series I was down there in the district and I I have to say I took metro out to the ballpark was a great thing to see this nats to wear blue again after losing two straight yeah and he makes a good point and I really do wonder and this is a player question for when the time is right you know at what point I don't think there's any turning back now regardless of the results that we're witnessing today you actually bleacher tweet along those lines we did yeah ship gamesmanship is a very critical piece of this puzzle as well exactly all right let's get to this week's quiz well here we go. This team was the McGraw's black-clad New York giants in the first game of the nineteen o five fall classic the Second World Series in modern history the giants come out in these what I would through the first round they beat the dodgers right and then they absolute trust the cardinals in those in those uniforms there's no chance of where anything other than it was it see the twenty fifteen royals or d the twenty eleven cardinals most recent team to wear a White Jersey while clinching thanks litter boys before we get to this week's cap talk with Todd Radim let's talk about that baseball cap many of our listeners may be wearing right now listening to this podcast you say wow you're now you're confused me a little bit and now I'm beginning to doubt my thing but you know what I'm going to go with my initial instincts and that would generally responsible for this kind of thing so we'll we'll see what happens I do want to note the fact that the Astros also have navy blue alternate uniforms and there was some conjecture nope I'm getting these caps because one of my best friends designed this logo right here so he got the allred nationals cap and then I got the blues there was some conjecture that the astros were going to get out there and they're alternate blue uniforms therefore forcing the nets to wear gray Washington road uniforms did not happen games and they're out there in the navy blue uniform which great bodily I mean they really they're very very classy but but everything is dictated by luck and prior to game one of the world series home team gets to choose the their uniform the road team has to follow suit with something that's properly contrasting and I have the trick answer I'm curious to see if troy has it I have a gut instinct on this call what are you got the final quiz of the year a trick question up since Josh went out the door but go ahead troy I mean for some reason I'm just picturing the royal storming the field in their white but I'm not that confident they just turned it on turn on the jets hosmer coming around third at Citi field in New York so there you go see here's here tide here's what I had in my mind and I don't know why todd would trick us I yeah he doesn't need to consider although we've been better than Josh like clearly the performance has been steps I recent one to wear a White Jersey while clinching the final game of the world series was it a the two thousand thirteen red sox was it be the twenty twelve giants final out of the World Series Twenty Thirteen Red Sox twenty twelve giants twenty fifteen royals twenty eleven cardinals this feels like a trick question I think I'm todd thanks as always for this quiz in all year you do such a great job and we get such great feedback every time you're on everyone loves your stories your integrity the whole thing busted that's the kind of company he's keeping obviously it's too soon to do this but if you had to throw a number into mid air as to what you think will be the clinching number two Garrett Cole this off season what number would you get tradition of this and a very long season that's about to come to an end all right I had an opportunity to go up in a blazing glory but instead I'm a loser again see the San Francisco giants in two thousand twelve todd you're both losers why appropriately enough in those navy uniforms on Tuesday what do you think I mean I think they're going to at this point what they've been doing I you know we all know as you said baseball players are superstitious and I appreciate it my friend buster and troy thank you so much and just very briefly I want to give a special shout to your guest hosts during the season Tim Baseball but we had a long time to do that and most of all a thank you to all of our listeners who I love hearing from them on twitter love meeting people you never knowledge afterward he didn't really know if they'd be able to turn around but he just figured he'd say it so he could come steinbrenner down sure enough the games three four five in Atlanta and twenty sixteen in their Royal Blue Alz also not exactly what people probably envisioned for one hundred eight years or whatever it was so anyway long question here from Jason Emeco Jason Meco some guys have extreme high velocity while having mechanics where they drastically short on the ball Garrett Cole and Lucas well I think in what will actually happen to probably two very different things and as we all know also You know the the starting pitchers I know where people are GonNa say hello so thank you let's have a great conclusion of this world series and a great offseason tweets I plus our final he is a seat of eroneous nature leading my because I knew that the red sox had one at home I since bringing in a team to DC the learner family have famously only kept managers for two to three years including Matt Williams Dusty Baker during the winning years does this embarrassed the twenty thirteen Boston Red Sox who won the world series at home first time since nineteen eighteen and troy just think about the two thousand fifteen royals remember and we're thought it was kind of a trick question because in my mind I had the giants wearing their home whites in Detroit and that was there was a seed back there that clearly one game six to win the world series that's what it feels like could happen here in game six on Tuesday now it's certainly wild here we go at Kayaking Smith Bust men in the world series at home few of the learners to not extend Martinez no I don't think so and yeah they got blown out and these three games outscored ninety Jack I don't know what this means yeah that's what I don't WanNa hear it he's trying to pronounce names but what Martha wants no is what's up with this homefield curse in the postseason yes the three but it's no shame to lose to the astros the Astros airy monster team a legacy team day Martinez done a good job I think he's totally safe stor chief executive of a weekly cuisine draft cards work can be seen on ball all across America all around the world and tie learn everyone does things differently the final one this morning from Amy Shelvin and Amy Arshavin buster and troy is this the worst world series umpiring or have there been others that are just bent others have been just as bad and I can remember specific situations where stuff popped up and interject

We just keep battling - 4.19

"Well dot on the road sports gambling. Podcast coming out of the backfield corporate offices i am tell dix very told was i did policy for that. But we're going to beat us here. Yes sir Mid mid-tier jazeera c. J. okay for mid psych. I thought you left. Maybe hammered don. I had a pretty solid week. And how about you. Fifty fifty fifty fifty saturday forty baseball stomach. Sunday for forty was tough baseball. It was good. Your i set you up for fucking failure on friday. Because i told you to look up. What you're forty record was. And i told you to put it out and when you do that you know that you're fucking you're playing with fire with fire and you are tempting. The forty gods. It started off to saturday and we were down in the other two games. I was like all this scott. Let did you battle. Yes of saturday was four and two. It was sunday so are the arsenal game. Like the v. a. r. to sewer that to start the day and then it just went sideways from like real baptist. Blew two leads like it was just ugly. Did you guys have a win. On the yeah. Did i submitted my first. Rollover and i lost all but one of those bets bill. That's why you're not of the show. Let's fuck and keep it that way. Almost over ten might be worrisome. Bill keep trying over ten. I mean we might have to cash in on. This obviously had good thursday. Good friday and saturday as i don't know how i feel about this pixel five and three. We battled sunday on the seventh day. We rested guy did nothing. I took yesterday off. I needed today to clear the gambling brain. Sometimes you need that. Sometimes you need that. I didn't even look at the folk ins the board. See how. I would've done. All i know is i did watch baseball last night. In fucking karl hendricks got absolutely blessed. The first i think he gave up more home runs last night than he had than he did. All last year. I mean gave up four in the first. That's what i met somebody to give up. And they were fucking they were. They were well. They were unafraid freeman. Who was freeway. Do gone yeah I would be a terrible host. If i didn't ask gumby how he felt about the super league and his team wherever pool potentially leave in the ep l. Duwamish dive into what it is or does that matter No if you don't know about the super league airs twelve teams already fifteen potentially who were trying to create their own cop basically on bags. This has nothing to do. This is nothing to do with the team. The players the coaches this is all the fucking owners. It's an absolute they interviewed clot before the game today. And he he the the players and coaches know nothing about it so don't like they played leads today and people are coming at them like gary neville gary neville and rio ferdinand who. I've hated my whole life because they're man. United legends came out against manchester united. Like this doesn't happen in soccer. Like he summed it up perfectly. Call them bottle merchants. Like that's exactly right like it's isn't liverpool. This isn't man united. This isn't chelsea. This isn't taught this. This isn't man city john. Henry this is the glazers. It's roman abramovich. It's whoever owned man city. It's cranky it's daniel levy like they're the only ones to blame for this and it's like a kick them out of the ep l. Bucket i would. There's nothing to play for if they're playing in the epl and they don't need to come top four to make the champions league. There's no fucking point i agree. It sowed it's disgusting arsenal furloughed. People who worked for their club. And now they're doing this tottenham reso- to the government for help and now they're doing this all. This is a money. Grab your can't people will say while the teams want to play for their national team like anybody who plays for england wants to fuck and bring it home like it's been so long like i don't think there's enough if it was all about money players would would have signed in china years ago to play there because they have the most money. This can't hey can happen. You can't like leads in liverpool play are playing right now and i do not give a shit and i can't tell you the last time that i ever did not care about liverpool game. Happy since i was boiling. His your board. Yeah the beauty of footage me is like you can't tank because you'll get relegated and like yeah. Man city's got a huge lead at the top of the table. Or whatever but they're still battling to be in the top four so that you can make the champions like when you get when you get promoted to the english premier league it is a fucking sell like teams in the fa cup like you see like crawley town who is second division this year. They play if they play a game at tottenham that can fund their team for fucking years and years. You just and you did this. Imagine if that there is fans right now in the state. That's why they did this now. Because there's no there was fans they would fucking burn these places doubt like this is i. Don't i mean you say that funds teams. The big ten did to the max year like canceling all their games again. Ammon shit like that. It's all fucked up to italy as it doesn't go through and you'll never recover from this. No well not us to go. So you have klopp. Who brought liverpool back like hadn't won a league title in thirty years and they're fucking owners didn't tell him they didn't tell him the players didn't know no they couldn't tell anyone who had a fucking who was other than the owners. Because would guy out. Like i don't think the players play i don't. I don't think there's enough money to make this happen. I really don't. I can't see it. I mean because then now it puts a bad position for the players. The new the new champions league idea that came out was incredible. Did see the lake. That's setup is unbelievable thirty six teams and it's like a leak like that's fucking awesome gets worked i wanted to give you. It's tough. it's tough. It is i mean you you. I mean liverpool lake. Gary neville said you'll never see man united and liverpool come together. I didn't think i'd ever see in my lifetime. Liverpool's motto is. You'll never walk alone and this is what you're fucking doing like these teams came from nothing. Manchester it was nothing before sir. Alex and man city was nothing before this oil money came in like the taught. Six now is not like the top. Six years ago was fucking darby county. A- like west like arsenal tottenham and liverpool are are barely in the top six in england. Right now i don't. I wouldn't say arsenal or todd number. Top thirty teams in the league or in the world sort this year. No like stupid. I'm with you biden. Thing is we're all everyone's everyone's on the same page on this for the owners All right let's get baseball. Do you have your baseball winners for. Yeah i got tired today. Game had already happened Socks and the socks white in the red red sox won eleven to four. I had the red sox i five. I liked them because I can't remember we'll do. A volley was pitching but they were also mice. Wanna four short for me and there number one Hitting team versus ryan pitchers delete does. Era on the road was not as great. He'll hat audio today. The red sox obviously lost her. But i got the red sox there. You didn't have anything on early. No you try and stay away from bed in. The socks can but giolito as those games man and patriots day wasn't going a fucking against the socks of audio had ten ks tweeted earlier there and i only said the socks like when i say socks. I'm talking about the red sox. I'll say white sox talk about the white sox. There's only one socks sacks seven. Oh five san francisco at philadelphia. Kevin gallen versus chase anderson. I wanted to maybe lean gausman here. i didn't like it though is expected as a anderson's areas up phillies a better hitting team. But i'm staying away from this one. I'll take the phillies plus a half tony. Oh they're getting plus half yeah. Giants are averaging league. Worst one point four seven runs per i five. They're actually i think. Thirteen twelve of one of the i live under. No i said the other day Chase anderson he's decent and the phillies are seven and two at home. What's the juice on that. Plus one thirty four sought terrible. I mean the phillies. I would lean that then for sure. I'm not sold on gospel. yeah i hear. I'm not particularly sold on anderson. But he does have a good track record against the giants. Saint louis at washington seventy-five jack flaherty of versus joe. Ross i do have a pick your i've taken nationals. I five plus a half It's minus one thirty verse cards. Saint louis has not been good versus right handed pitching their number twenty six this season a number twenty seven in the league in the last seven days as far as versus writing in pitching nationals. Other on the other hand our top ten in both versus right handed pitching Joe ross is not giving up a run in eleven innings. This season jack flaherty has a four point eight seven expected era so if i could get the nationals plus five sorry plus a half i five thirty. I'm going to do that in this game. You got anything for this. I'm going the other way. Tony i love. I love flirty. I think he's very very good. And the nationals are two six and five in their first five so oh that's not good. I expect joe ross to come back to earth. Here's a question point. Here's the question had no agree. I'm worried about the. I am worried about that. I mean the cardinals are not great. I five either Question that normally gets asked to us. I've been having hard time. Finding i five trans you have a site tra- yeah odd shark shark has oh i just stumbled across it. Actually shark has all your first five trends. I just fucking found that out too and there was another one. I was looking at some nanna. Let excel tweeted out. But yeah so. Cardinals cardinals are averaging two point. Eight seven runs per i five nationals. One point nine two. I mean i just like i just. I liked him. I love getting a half to just think joe ross. At some point he's got to get got here tampa bay at kansas city. Kansas city is off to their best. Start since they won the world series of two thousand fifteen josh fleming and danny duffy. I was looking to take kansas city in this spot. When i started looking at it i was like oh. I kind of like kansas city here. They are minus one or two money. Line razor mice one sixteen line so kansas city is technically the dog here and they are let me see. I five if they're getting a half or not i five. Kansas city is getting half minds. One fifty four Then i started looking at the pitching matchups. Danny duffy if i remember has the has a good era. If i remember flynn make sure. I'm saying this correctly yet. His era is point. Seven five duffner. Yeah but is expected. Er as is almost five. Gave up eight. Hits last game only gave up one run that was fucking robbie ray yesterday for the blue jays that guy dance with fire all fucking get. I any head second and third nobody. He gave up no runs in the first five and he had two guys on base. Every the yanks fuck instinctive. i mean. But for because of the expected the r. a. I stayed away. But if i had to lean here i would go royals plus the half But i'm going to stay away you on this one. Yeah i would lean that way with only don't I don't tampa bay is not played. Well against the yanks. But so i'm in a situation. Here cohe ara. Hara is on the mound for the rangers rookie at los angeles angels Dylan bundy's on the mound for the angels and fucking. I loved after as i looked at everything i love. The angels A let's see here. Danger number one versus right hand pitching in the last week and number three overall for the season texas number twenty five in the last seven days And not good for the season. Either dylan bundy is a two point one five. Era larry bundy all of a sudden. Get good ice in. An ira has six point five seven so like oh i was like oh i love the angels here and then i went and look and i wanted to take the first five good luck the first five for the angels of if you taking this like if you wanted anything that resembled any sort of value their minds to sixty on the first money line and then the run line their minds one and a half which you know i am not taking a month one and a half. I five run so i did some searching on sports book and i could get the angels to be leading after the fourth inning at minus one. Thirty four so i jumped on that. I don't know i i mean it's one inning difference one at bat but i'm gonna roll the dice here. I'm taking the angels to lead after the fourth inning. For point one thirty four anything there. No thank you. I figured angel. Or sorry dodgers at the mariners. Another huge line here dusted may versus justice. Sheffield yeah i mean he got. He didn't have a great outing his last time. So the dodgers minus two hundred here. You got anything here. i'm not taking. I'm the dodgers. I mean they're tough to bet on or against because there's so much juice good for the for the padres getting one. Yes that was a great. Because if dave sweatman there was kershaw's out of his fucking mind by the way if he thinks that guy swung the bat late to hit his catcher. While lankan stupid so yeah that was a great series of not taking anything in that game tonight Jacob i guess if you get a chance. Thank you And then the last game of the night ten ten pm wall. So the dodgers started ten ten to milwaukee at san diego brainer would drift joe moscow. Pretty good match fucking do ultimately both have two point two five expected. Er as woodruff the only starting pitcher who hasn't given up dinger this year. He's been fucking unbelievable. I wrote him last week. Kim in the cubs doing an under My thing here is musk grove is he had his bad start after his citing. Musk's back i looked at the under arena half. I think surprising those down to three six and a half the first five under is three and a half juice to minus one forty which was a little too much for me. So i i was looking at potentially taking the dog. Here in the brewers plus five or i five plus a half minus one. Twenty two just. Because i think it's going to be a good pitching matchup. San diego has better line up but there. There may be a bit of a setback or a lull after the big little hangovers dodgers. So the brewers. I five plus half. I'll go moscow. I five okay. Yeah that makes sense. I like the padres. i think. Maybe they'll go the other way. They'll ride that big list either. Hey there's not a bad bet here. I don't think whatever way you go on this game. I think we gotta guest today because we said we fucking would and i will never let you guys down baby toe the betting analyst for nessin and fox sports nothing yeah lesson host of host of chicken dinner. He told me just to call them. A- sammy p But i'm not going to disrespect them and try to say his last name. It sam patio. Bill which i and i think i can. Nail that waga dodd sanded home. Most little close. You added a couple extra syllables. But it's alright dick's hey you're chicago guy right yeah i was. I enjoy the socks versus sox thing. I'm in a weird place. Because i'm a white sox fan working for the home of the red sox and i have to pick this series with integrity and i can't like openly pick against the red sox because my boss will hang me out the window and whatever so i decided to get you and went i five under game under. It was over in the first. Well we were talking about fucking volleys. Been unbelievable this year and then giolito normally good but he'll throw fucking stinker out every once in a while. So i was on the energy to so no one's gonna no one's gonna blame. Their problem is when you lose in boston. And you pick you pick against the boston teams. The vitriol goes up a notch. You know you could pick on the socks for the bruins of the patriots and if you lose it's like all right we're already mad. We already hate these teams anyways. A lot of the boston fans but when you pick against boston you know the slings and arrows. Come from all rectal especially on fucking patriots. Day do that at your own Your own fucking not me policy. It's my own fault your by the way before we do anything else. The first time. I came across tone digs. I was working at visa in las vegas and my brother goes. You made it on digs timeline. Unlike okay well. What did i do. You like getting pulled over by the feds or something like that. And i was telling the story on that show on a friday morning. You were getting pulled over by the cops as i was hosting in the video you put up. I'm talking in the background of it on the ear. Oh got pulled over speeding talking book you. I remember that now. Because i remember fucking taking a picture of my rear view mirror and i think i tagged todman. Komo's in that fucking. I look back and then visa was on the radio. So yeah yeah. I remember that. I had no idea that you're with them that i went out there for a year and a half. It was wild. That was when brent musburger was still wholesome monday through friday. They've had a couple of different alterations variations of their lineup. But i work every single day. I mean you guys live fun. Factory were places is fucking wild. Try going to work every day past the blackjack table pass the slots. Pass all that shit on the way to to talk about betting. You're hearing the bells and whistles literally everywhere. You go our studios in the middle of a casino. It's i mean it's still. Is i into the middle circle now you you poor timing on your part Yeah i'd have a hard time not putting five on black every time. I walked past did you. Did you like living in vegas though. I didn't like it. Because i didn't make much money of the totem pole there so making like thirty seven dollars a week by the worst was be would be when you'd have friends that would come into town and when i'm twenty seven twenty eight. I'm still sort of climbing that broadcasting ladder and my friends are sir denis or whatever and they're loaded and motor and croutons for dinner and water drink and shit. It's hard to live there when you don't make any money but the hardest parts when you're going on dates and you have no money or when all the boys come to town and all the boys got money Hold on one second. I'm just reading the trat. The chat real quick mitt. Did you spell Analyst royal problem with my brother told me by the way he said. Don't trust mitt shouting report for all you guys. And he's he's listened everyday. The pod pat you guys and he says don't trust mitt. Well i wouldn't anyways but it's good life lesson too. So what are you. What are you are you bet. Nba you bet. Mlb now the football season what do like to bet the most. I love baseball. But i'm getting my teeth kicked in in this game and i've had a lot of i five i love i five and i've been doing it for about seven eight years now starting to get a lot more popular But i've head. I five unders where it's one to one after four and then it's six to one after five and you're like the grim reaper of gambling keeps you alive. Those are the worst losses. Were you're right and then you have the victory. Rip out of your talents. So i played a lot of i five baseball. But i've been on the wrong side of a lot of those but hockey's actually been my best sport all year. Oh really like the wild tonight. But i like to do the regulation in the exotics even love. I periods overs renders. But i took the wild and regulation plus one hundred They're on the road in arizona. I think minnesota's gonna win the game. But i love the minimize juice and you talked earlier about price shopping. I like to turn those minuses in the pluses while they're minus one forty on the money line but in regulation. It's a sixty minute. Bet they have to win it in regulation but i turned that minus one forty in a plus one hundred. Yeah it was so you can talking about early because the angels. I went with the fourth inning. Bet but there was another bet said. We'll the home team. Bat in the ninth inning. Which is very similar to angels money line and the angels money line was like minds to sixty. But will they baton. The ninth inning was like minus one fifty something like that. So it's basically the same fucking bet but you're getting the juice is one hundred points different. Yeah sometimes they fall asleep in the back room of the trading room. Like i know that for a fact like somebody who sent the wrong button and you can sort of scout them earn points. This happened. I was at the golden nugget when they found out that rather than make all the prices minus one fifteen or minus one twenty five or thirty five all. The one somehow turned into twos. So if you're looking for the right dog instead of getting plus one five or plus one hundred or whatever you're getting plus one ninety plus two hundred and if the right underdog hit. I mean you made more than a dollar back on your money. So that does actually happen. I mean there's a lot of algorithms and a lot of automated stuff but sometimes a lot of these things go in by hand. People just hit the wrong button. Do anything else in the nhl. No i do. Actually i will. I will say this. I have the bruins to win the stanley cup at twenty at eighteen and at fourteen and i don't know how many people are aware ever since the trade deadline four now so this isn't a play tonight because they don't play again till tomorrow and they'll be a big favorite against buffalo buffalo gallows but you'll look you're looking at boston. You can still shop around and find them like sixteen to one to win the stanley cup. They don't even have to win the cup for you to make money right if they get through that first series against washington. That's likely the matchup they'll get into the second round. They'll probably be favored against whoever they face if they can win the east. You're talking about a price that you'll have in your pocket at sixteen to one at that point they'll probably be six or seven to one and then from there you can hedge or get creative digs. They haven't had their goalie pretty much out the season. I took her ask. It's played sixteen games. They've been without to defend for the last two months. They've been hobbled they've been banged up but they make a couple of moves at bring taylor hall they trade for mike riley czars. Good fourth line got. This team. plays very good defense and rascals in between the pipes. That's going to be a tough team. Is they get better over. The course of a series. It's tough to beat them. Four on a seven. I like it and for those of you. Who don't know what a hedge is if you take the bruins to win the cop. They make it all all the way to the finals. And you have at sixteen to one then you could put a little bit of money on their opponent from the western conference in the final so that you know that you are making a profit and that's edging had find yourself a good hedge calculator matt. It gets difficult. So what do you like. Do you like anything. That i m beaten. I do like the cardinals. I'll break the tie on this five. I think gump's on the birds birds to love flaherty at this price. I'm all about right team right price. You rarely get jack flaherty around minus one ten now. Sometimes it's too good to be true in the guy could give up four runs in the first part of the game right. It's a revolver. I do like that. Bet at that price and i was looking at woodruff strikeouts over potentially and the price on him. I mean usually when you get woodrow on the hill for the crew. He's minus one thirty one. Forty one fifty. You can get the brewers tonight plus one forty five. If you shop around i know must go through no hitter and i think that still entrenched in the lack of a lot of people's minds. I like the kind of fade. The guy that through the perfect or the known open the next month. Usually you get good value. Betting against those guys and the price goes up on your side. So i took a poke at plus one forty five on the walkie. Yeah it took a man. I took milwaukee to as dog. Just because they were the dog in this matchup of the good pitching matchups any other futures. Or anything i was looking at a couple al east teams like the yankees right now. Who by the way are the worst team the wager on in baseball yup minus ten and a half units you blindly bet the yanks every start. You're already down ten. And a half units which is almost impossible considering they played fifteen games. That's wild math and that's bad math but there are a couple teams. You like toronto or tampa. The red sox hotstar the yankees. Slow start created good value value in quotations on tampa and toronto shop around there you can find tampa at like plus five fifty. You can find toronto at five the one this is the win the division i mean this thing is still tight. It's early. it's april if you don't believe in the red sox and you hate the yankees. You could get pretty good value. I was trying to go back and forth between tampa toronto. I'm still sort of torn. But that's what i would look at because you take advantage of the red sox strong start you take advantage of the yankees being awful. Do you think the red sox start is like sustainable. Or do we think they're going to fade a bit. I said gone by set up there live by june. First they can be in it till yet because when it gets to june one on the calendar. That's ideally when they get chris sale back at that point in time. You have sale of all the in iran. That's a pretty good one. Two three assuming everybody stays healthy an offensive line. You knew they were going score. Some runs the biggest issue for me was the defense in the bullpen. And the bullpens been okay. I don't know that i like matt. Barnes a lot in the ninth inning in a pressure cooker situation like in september or october f- As far as winning games and winning two out of three like meatloaf always said two out of three ain't bad. They've been very good because they hit the shit out of the baseball and ice had one analyst telling me this is a a national baseball analyst. He said something like this. All of baseball is busy playing with calculators and the red sox have guys that mash like they just hit the baseball on base. they don't strike out a lot. I don't think the under is ever safe in a red sox game so they have the offense that can keep them in games and they're not in games are still good enough to churn butter and cut those leads on their good live betting team to there've been a couple of their winds where down three two one four two one and the fifth or sixth inning. And then you look up in the eighth and they're up seven four you could have been them five or six to one live. So that's a team. I think will never be dead in most nights. Sam we were era just is i. Don't that guy man like you just. There's always something happening with them. You know what i mean. Yeah he's like the carlos roa donna. Boston red iconic road on for years. He was always hurt. He was always out of shape. You know he could never stay on the hill for four or five straight starts. It's very similar with iran. There's always something i remember. He didn't he break his foot covering first base a couple of years when he when he first came to boston his first three starts he literally just through gas and gave up no runs and everyone was like holy shit. 'cause they got him for andrew miller from the orioles and ever since then it's like man he just you just can't stay healthy for a whole year. Speaking of road on are we can find lightning in a bottle though with guys like you know. I don't think anybody in the world would answer trivia question correctly the most profitable pitcher in major league baseball right now. You guys know who it is. Maybe it might be now. Volley volley not chad cool from the pittsburgh pittsburgh pirates. He's up already four units. Because when you think about the pirates. They're priced very lowly every single day. There are three in one when he starts. But he's cash for you at plus one eighty plus one ninety and plus to ten dollars in four stars. You're already up for eight. And if he wins two more starts at plus money like he's gonna make you money no matter what this year that's wild. I think that it's a right hander. Obscure right hander. On the pittsburgh pirates all teams That's the most profitable guy it's cool number. One sa- volley from cleveland. And then kyle gibson are the three most profitable guys in the game right now. That was that was the best when grandkids was on the bax because every game he would be plus a half. I five because they stunk so bad. Hey guy fucking dane dunning to. Did you have to bring them. We have to go their rates. Still before we let you out of here. How do you feel because the white sox were one of the favorites going in season. How do you feel about them right now. I don't know if larussa is going to be awake that much longer. Like did you ever catch him like eighth inning west coast game. They don't they don't come to him on the white sox brooklyn eighty because he's he's asleep yep the bullpen management's been bad the defense has been really questionable and they don't have a lot of deaths we saw. That goes down. Torn pack anderson miss some time. They're they're playing guys shouldn't play on every other day and i think the depth on that team isn't as great as people thought there still good enough to win the division and that bullpens very good with aaron bomber liam hendriks. The rotation should be fine. But i need my manager awake in the seventh and eighth inning when the games too much to ask for you if you go against larussa on the internet you will get timing. I i've buried them and so he's the best coach of all. I know he's a great coach. I get it just doesn't need to coach anymore saying we don't know how he's gonna make it to october. It's gonna happen. I'm grateful i'm hopeful. I have my doubts when aj was out there too. Right i mean. Hey sam we. We can't thank you enough for coming on. Go fall sam at sp. Shoot on the twitter machine Also find him on nessin fox sports any hosts a podcast chicken dinner. We can't thank you enough about thanks for coming on thanks. Y'all hamdan hammered. It gets it gets it good. Hey good information. A fucking pirates. Do johnny cool. Jad goal was have little fucking respect it. I mean not a surprise. The buck arlene. Bru brubaker is a fucking weapon. He's good like good good. Hey they'd fucking guy who's he's on the rangers where you get traded from must've always in that lance lynn. Trade must have been hurt too. That's going to hurt the bank account. He's awesome why we'll take lance lynn. I five every time all right. So we got our mlb which was mine was nationals. I five plus a half minus one. Thirty eight i of cards I have the angels leading after the fourth mine is one thirty four versus texas. And i think. I got a tweet that they took that down. So you're welcome. And then the brewers. I five plus a half minus one twenty two our mind. What are you got got got phillies. Plus a half. I five cardinals. I five money line in padres. I five money line. Beautiful man to do an f. Css weakened playoff start next week. One and to north dakota state. David blewett the playoff start next week or is that this weekend. i saw the the graphic. I thought playoffs starting this upcoming and Let's take a look quickly at the nba slate for tonight I didn't take goddamn news is going to happen. I didn't take one fucking pick on friday. That i gave out and they believe they would five now so good. It's only that was gonna happen for the good of the show. I'm not gonna take any of these tonight either. So you're welcome listeners. Your fucking welcome mid you got anything for tonight as we go through schedule just so i know y'all a couple of plays for night Cleveland detroit I would lean towards the pistons Getting points at home. I believe they're getting three at home. Yeah plus three against the cavs. I guess technically the cavs are still fighting for ten spot. They're in the east to try to get in the play or whatever. But i i like as far as the trends are concerned. I liked the pistons here tonight. You got anything on that one. Yeah four the reason that you just said the cavs are fighting for that last spot. That kind of the mickey mouse playoff spot. I'm taking the cavs minus three. I think detroit is a very bad team. They are so the cavs. I've learned 'cause this is bit me the asks and it's bit gummy in the ass to. I think a couple of times like when you think as a gambler like this team has to win. They're playing for playoff spot versus a team. That doesn't have anything play for that. That does that is not the case in gambling. That is not the case lot of times. It does not work out that way. let's see here the bulls celtics. I like i like the celtics when they're coming in hot. I believe they're seven one since. Paul pierce Went live on. I g oh yeah So i like the celtics here minus the six is what i saw. Old six has moved six and a half. it's fine. It's whatever i actually. I love this play as well boston. I think They're definitely going to cover the six. I would even put it up to like eight. Oh applause line eliminate the eli i love with makers back Golden state plus nine against the sixers in philadelphia. I'm going to stay away from that. One yes big. Stay away from me as well. Philadelphia's playing good and actually golden state has been playing super good lately they i would lean towards golden state on death was very hot or has been very hot but it depends on if he gets any any sort of help. thunder thunder. I r. o. Ten and their last ten. It could be worse than that. I'm not positive. I know they are the worst team in the nba. Right now that's why they're getting twelve and a half points versus the wizards at home over under two thirty two I think they're gonna take the wizards here. The wiz really. It's a big twelve a big line. I think it's bad but the thunder. Take sorry the wizards and the thirty two give it to me. All right. Bet on the wizards at your own risk by trust me. You're betting against leaning towards the pistons and the wizards is not something. I wanted to do all this monday. I promise you that mitt Rockets at the heat though on his six and a half of was stay away from me for their that. I was going to take the heat on this one. I like to eat on this one. I think they're they're due for a nice little bounceback sons are at the bucks and sons are getting threes. There fucking injury concerns in that game. I think they're getting three because at the box. Sound of anybody out. If you're gonna give me the sons is a dog off of a loss. Especially i'm gonna take the suns you can plug in. Take it to the bank with the sons for that for me And then let's see here. We have the spurs and pacers. I got nothing there you i. Two thirty seems very high to me. I liked the under in this matchup. Pacers played some good defense turner's backs bonuses back there all playing. It'd be a good game I don't know who's going to win but under our is a bonus definitely play From what i read. He was off the injury report. Okay because i thought i saw something earlier that he may still be on it but that could be me yes. Bonus turner questionable as of three pm. But it could have changed since then steph curry questionable to that might be a reason. Why the to jimmy. Butler is questionable for the heat. Ben simmons questionable for the sixers kemba is questionable for Celtics marcus smart rudy gobert. It's probably that way to list Quite a quite. They're powerless may Grizz at now get someone. Stay away from this line seven. I don't know if you've got anything. They're meant now. I'm staying away from this one as well. I still can't bet on this nuggets team. I don't really know how they play without jamal. Murray and then the jazz at the lakers of the kentucky either one of those teams either can't touch the jazz right now with donovan mitchell out and you have no idea what's going to happen with these lakers. Their most inconsistent team without lebron eighty or Ada believes backpacks years back. Braxton he will not be playing tonight though so it doesn't really matter. Yeah i know Let's see here. You got any I know it's a tough subject. But do you have any early. Actually thinking that i will not bet on those teams that are in that smart fucking. Yeah take a stand. Yeah i don't who will. We're not betting on any of the twelve teams. That are fucking. I'll bet against them are sold. Do you have anything early in the week or no. We got wednesday. We got a full slate across Laliga english premier league and siri tomorrow. Or let's do Tomorrow okay we'll do this tomorrow. Gulbis forty pitts. Forty picks coming tomorrow for wednesday Nhl shall we covered I think we're on l. Through the normal through tears years in their of well. Let's fuck and see. Create a fucking dinger in here jazz. The win by eleven. Plus points for the lakers plus two hundred stay away from all we do have a dingus. Prop what are you got. I don't like it one soto to hit a home run vs versus cardinals who flirty. What's it adds. That'd be like plus four plus five twenty. I'll ask you this question one more time my friend do you like dinger's did i take the nets. Do you like money like all those things ended. I also take the nets at plus five hundred. I mean not skinny one. So you gotta survive you have to sprinkle electric dodgers to win and nine. Plus total runs scored versus the mariners. Plus twenty so. The dodgers are huge favorites to win so they went sandiego last night to seattle. That's not that for. They're huge fans to win. Fucking sheffield so you think. I'm not saying that part. Oh you think the way the law will no but if lose team ten sixty feis shots fuck in johnny shafi over under is eight and a half. I mean plus two hundred. What happens if you just. Let's see if you parlay the money. Line few parlay the money line in the over. Its plus one sixty two. So you're getting that boosted bus two hundred dollars or thirteen three either. Very good as this is. What it's going to be all your. They're very good. The fucking the horses that they try out every night. I mean kershaw's dealing do. I thought he was dead. Just fucking trot. I mean oh you need someone fucking bauer like this guy is considered. There's an ep l. Odds boost four plus total goals scored and chelsea and brighton. Tomorrow no tomorrow. Three four four bus goals goals. Yeah stay away from it. Take fucking plus three hundred. Plus three fifty. No bleeding or do brandon plays pretty tight game. Think we might have a Maybe an old friend on tomorrow so believe you guys. Are that old friend. An old friend of hayward them maybe draft One of our favorites. Do the cut me. Who's golf it now. Nobody had stewart cink so sink still win. I don't know.

The Sleeper and the Bust Episode: 727 News and 2020 Outlooks

"<music> hello awkward grabbing seven twenty-seven on the sleeper in the bus. It's wednesday august fourteenth. I'm your host. I'm joined by justin mason justin. What's going on dude. It is so oh hot right now. Oh my god fan yourself with that. You want in the draft kings game yeah did. Let's go man who who did it for foia. Who was it a team effort or was there to that really. It was really a team effort one. I mean i think i won by like forty something points in our contest. It was a little bit tighter in the towers. My giannella made kind of run. I ended up winning that one too is so i won the period as well which gets something in a tournament. Tell me you did. I did not d._f._s. Wanna one yeah it. I should've i honestly i had i when i set up when i stood up my <hes> my lines for earlier in the day you know us kind of a dummy lineup. It's got some of the players and ideas of kind of what i wanna build and then typically you know about an hour or so before log all make sure you guys are in the lineup move things around things like that. <hes> and i wish i had run at least one contest with the original lineup because it even better oh no is way the worse i'd like matt boyd instead of jack flaherty everybody but two guys score double digits for you yeah it was it was really a team effort and it was you know i mean obviously yankees. Stack against you know means in the orioles is always a good idea. I faded colorado in colorado which you've heard a lot of people tennis the gotten at ten seven with l._a. Pittsburgh that's that's really what did it. I would say that that that effort with bell frazier and otani was was really where it was that yet trout as well but he's actually on your underperformance as was gleyber torres to your most expensive guys great job there though well done. I like that you had joe ross since it's on on the topic. There wasn't gonna bring them up but you pick joe ross. You're obviously familiar with what he's doing and light his chances to to do something there last night i joe ross was a prospect i. I've always loved tights. It's an fell right for joe joe. I i did not pay him any mind this year. I was like you gotta show something and we talk about players like that where it's like until you shows something. I'm not in and i might lose you to a waiver wire. I don't care but now he's showing something you'll get his last three starts for joe roff basically his august thus far at arizona at san francisco and then yesterday against a quality cincinnati team. He's allowed just wondering run in eighteen innings now he does have eleven strikeouts nine walks but <hes> this three innings sample. He is throwing watched <hes>. I watched the san francisco start for joe ross. Is he somebody that you're picking picking up and hanging onto right now. I don't know that i'm hanging onto him but he's definitely someone i am. I'm kind of looking at the schedule and going knowing okay. Is he usable in in the near future. He's not a guy that i necessarily want to run out there against elite competition but <hes> i mean if if you had seen kind of this san francisco and cincinnati to step you probably you probably would've wanted to use him. I mean these are two offenses. That aren't necessarily firing on all cylinders so i used him yesterday largely because he was home versus it's an any and <hes> he was extremely cheap in d._f._s. And i think that kind of the the <hes> the things you want to target. Is you know he was extremely cheap. People out to load up on bats. <hes> you know in pair them with clarity so. I don't know that i'm holding onto him anywhere. I don't know where his next start is because to pittsburgh and then the cubs home to miami gotta go pittsburgh. You're gonna to use them against cincinnati at home. You're you're going to pittsburgh like terrible. They rise up every once in a while like any team does but you're not afraid of pittsburgh in fact dylan peter's tonight. Tonight is an interesting spot start their dreadful against lefties not joe ross a but i think the point stands and you know at the cubs will be tough <hes> <hes> but miami after that so joe ross you might want to just be putting them on your bench as opposed to letting i'm get dangled back out. There on the waiver wire be dominates at pittsburgh. There is a scenario where i would start at chicago. I will say that joe ross <hes>. It's not that's right now for me. Though the upside just so limited i mean these last three starts where he's been very very good. He's only had three three strikeouts but i think a lot of that right. Now is joe ross looking to survive and doing so he's still getting swinging strikes not really going for the strike outs i think as he settles we could see a little bit more of the strikeout upside because he does have an eleven percent inswinging strike rate so anyway. That's just where i'm at right now with with. Joe ross is definitely something to pick up in stream to your point for the app is for sure. Maybe not for the chicago but then home against miami to cap off the month. You would definitely want to get back on that little tangent there. We got a lot of news and notes today so we're gonna we're gonna cover that kind to get your outlook on some of these guys whether it's going forward for the rest of this season or into twenty twenty because of some injuries then a few performances that have been going off and i want to get your thoughts on where they're at ah especially their twenty twenty outlook. Let's start with some unfortunate bad news for pittsburgh. This came on. Nobody i mean shouldn't we start with like the big good news as a pitcher going to arizona arizona yeah yeah. I was gonna talk about that at the end of it. That's fast. I just figured we start off on a high note and then i'll be at we. Did you one relax. How many high notes do you need today. I need all the high notes clearly clearly but yeah you're gonna to be there. It's going to be awesome. I'm really excited to be honest it's going to it's going to be a lot of fun and i mean just the people that are going. It's going to be even better this year than it has gets better every year it really does. We talk this event. They don't pay us. You know it's not anything like that. We call it. You know we talk it up because joey lobby. It's been a great and i'm really excited that you're going to be there. I will say that the the lunchroom mean with you on the outside was one of the funniest things i've ever seen life. <hes> did you see the the first burst first birthday version of that. No i didn't <hes> games to me. Yeah off off to send you the one that <hes>. Ah after i announced that i was going to be going there was a kind of a response mean. You're gonna miss the first birthday but like the i. I don't think i feel like a crappy dad and everything at the same time she's not gonna know missing it no chance and then honestly <music> honestly. It'll become like probably a funny thing dad. You're going to get my birthday this year like you did when i was one you know that's that's kind of a funny jab that <hes> that you guys has can have because you know danielle is gonna bring up so that'll be funny job all weekend. Oh well yeah that's one hundred percent on the weekend this year but i'm talking like when she's twelve and the day before her third no way she lets this go ever know nor nor should she so it'd be great a great. I mean fodder for the future. Let's get back into this news james anton down with tommy john outta nowhere really i did my ideal top thirty podcast casts yesterday and i talked about a group of honorable mentions ty did not make the top thirty but he was in the next twenty honorable mentions thinking that it's going to be an off offseason of rest and rehab coming back from from the strain that he had nope full-scale tommy john out twenty twenty and it's really tough now to to be all that bullish on jameson on. It's just it's one thing after another and i it really sucks because this is a career. That's being cut a short that i think really could have been special big town. Fan loved him coming into the year. You only had fourteen era in his first seven stars but i was not deterred at all my my i love about what he could do was still very high. Even with the strike outs underwhelming little bit thirty in thirty seven and a third innings the way was throwing was strong but then the flex restraint right right elbow flex restraint turned into tommy john and like i said out twenty twenty in dynasty. We're yet now with with jamison. Take the pennies on the dollar or you. Just ride it out and put. I'm on the stash i mean i'm always about taking pennies on the dollar especially if i know that twenty twenty is in going to be profitable for me anyway so there may be a league or to where i go and acquire a tie on that being you'll pay. You'll pay the pennies on the dollar. Sure sure why not okay yeah. No no that's fine. I misunderstood you would take it and start selling off your shares. It depends on i mean i don't know if i would sell off my shares shares unless i was in a league. That didn't have a lot of i._l. Slots every game you. This is is probably too hot right now because we can still dream on it but i feel like in two weeks. It could be more reasonable than say like aristidies keno. I'm trying to think of somebody who is like that flashing flashing the pan though that somebody just say you know what you can have this guy right. Now is kind of out of nowhere think ryan goines is too low and aristide is too high but you get the vibe. I'm trying go for here. I don't know that i would necessarily i don't believe in kenya so why would you take talk men for tie on. Would you trade trade. Talk in a dynasty league talk for tyron okay and so then you were trained aquino too. Okay okay well. That's where you're at then. There's not much else to i'd say right. Now about a massive bummer struck me. I know where i was talking yesterday actually kind of getting excited like oh yeah. We'll be twenty twenty back on the train and then boom t._j. Jake arrieta elbow. I l out for the year. It looks like terrible anyway <hes> hm this doesn't really move the needle as far as like oh no fantasy teams are are toast. It does cost them some innings. Though right i mean when we started talking about n._f._c. Versus real life it's one of those things where he was still eating innings and while he was not particularly fantasy viable with four sixty four year eight and a one forty seven whip jake arrieta i mean that's that's grinding out like just worse than a quality start and every time out that's useful for a real life team so now they have to go replace a place that but what is your outlook on gariana going forward because i was a thousand percent out this year and yanking me back in next year. That's for sure so so. Where are you right now with an elbow injury. That's likely to cost him the rest of the season yeah hours right there with ya. I'm i'm out obviously for this year. I think you can you. I used to drop him in just about every format. I know i say full-scale draw now only here for hanna yeah so i'm <music>. I'm gonna stay out next year. The price is going to be nothing so if you wanna take a shot on it. I just think you can get <hes> you know sixto extols sanchez or something like that probably in the same spots yes by back in and some of the prospects who didn't pan out this year like hey seuss lazardo force whitley lately that's the drought trains and so why even why even take the area at a shot because it's going to be safer yeah and those prospects come up and ella say they're more of like this year's jake arrieta but they have the upside to be like good jake arrieta if we're really if we're keeping in the scope of them versus area so i'm with you full l. pass it does put zach f. one back in rotation i believe in he's flashes this year but obviously was poor enough to get kicked out. Where do you stand with zach kathleen as a mixed league pickup is funny because last year we were looking at those underlying numbers going man. There's some room for growth here but he can't keep the ball in the ard ard yup and this shocked to learn that on june nineteenth after his quality start at washington zach f. one had a two eighty three e._r._a. Day june nineteenth. Do you know what it's like far and half right yeah it's four forty nine so you put an eight and one in the subsequent thirty two and a third innings there and guess what he gave up ten homer so there's your there's your segue segue back into what you were saying about keeping the ball in the yard and that's i mean that's brutal so is that your biggest concern here and why you might not be interested in yeah. That's my big concern. I mean i like the stuff but if you can't keep the ball ard philadelphia he's he's gonna have problems that being said is giving up only one home run in his last four outings so that's a bit encouraging though it's not like they face the giants twice yet and then tripped arizona with the humidor and then the white sox on exact scary and it's like five innings so i feel you on that zach one the thing of it is he's going to look like an oasis waste out there on the waiver wire because even with the four forty nine e._r._a. It's still one hundred eighteen innings ninety nine strikeouts that you're gonna see that it's going to be enticing. Let me just kind of give you. The schedule set up here a little bit san diego this weekend at miami the following again. They only have a five day schedule so we actually next week so he actually goes set a saturday here for flat. I really really just decided that. I'm actually going to go pick my one fastest finger league. I'm gonna now because why the heck not take that shot. I mean if he can if he can get through san diego will he should have no problem getting through miami so yeah why not take the shot up side there yeah yeah. Just you know hopefully you don't get burnt and there's always that opportunity was going for the afrin can do i will say it could be a two and and jump off situation now because it winds up mets at cincy atlanta boston so it gets a lot tougher there zac f. one would have to prove even the san diego miami starts improve as much as you can't to starts that he is commanding the ball well enough to keep it in the yard or else. It could be held pace. I say get zack f for this saturday the next saturday and then consider moving on unless we see something that really look like that first half of the season. Let's talk about robbie ray. He loved his start today with a little bit of a back situation. Back expands should be anything too crazy only two innings in colorado. Is this almost a blessing in disguise being slightly tongue in cheek but also somewhat series of course field yeah we we don't miss a game. This is the one you wanted to you know and it's back spasms. He should be all right so it's not i'm not wishing for injury or routing being on it. I'm just saying like a couple of weeks there anyway. Let me just go ahead and get out of this one. I'd already given up a run to walks on a hit <hes> so yeah kind of the long ball anyway. I'm just saying i'm just so with robbie ray. I did want to talk a little bit about his his twenty twenty outlook here because let me ask you something real. Quick and get your thoughts. Where do you think is on among starting pitchers on the razz ballplayer raider. I bet you he's twenty sixth really good at this today. What was the other thing you guess f. One ziara twenty eighth very well done there and that impresses me i did. I wouldn't have said that high. I think because it's it's it's a bland offering outside of the strikeouts but the strike outs it's strong with robbie ray and the simple fact is something that we've hammered home repeatedly in the last year plus plus you don't need to the top of the scale of innings to rate well on these either so you take a three ninety nine one hundred and eighty five strikeouts in one one hundred forty innings and ten wins and boom. You're twenty eighth among starting pitchers. That's where robbie ray has any always costs fair market value. There was that one bid after after the sub three e. r. a. where he was pushed up and that was that was an issue because it was very clear that he was not anywhere near it eighty ninety or a guy i am but since then last last season's draft price i think upcoming season's draft price twenty twenty. I think robbie ray will be someone worth buying lying. Just you kind of know what you're getting right. Yeah i think if as long as he keeps the ball in the yard and doesn't walk the entire yard and while while for walks per nine isn't necessarily thing we aspire to for him. That's keeping people off the base paths yeah because it was five last year earn it really ballooned robberies whip to one thirty five and then all of a sudden you start to undercut the positives that he's doing with a passable e._r._a. In the elite each strikeout rate so <hes> yeah the bax shouldn't be anything too bad business as usual. You almost caught a break there to be quite honest though because he wasn't chorus field on the sean the only only three pitchers that have a higher k per nine than robbie ray in at least one hundred and forty innings so far this year chris sale garrett cole justin austin versus number yup they go and that's that's how you're twenty six are twenty-eight despite you know solid but unspectacular era a mediocre whip at one twenty nine for robbie ray all right showman ira gonna be back after one more triple a rehab start it hasn't rained in the minors with the results particularly because of hits and homers but the underlying skills and twenty four and a third innings with thirty five strikeouts in eight eight walks. We somewhat encouraging here <hes> he has split his time between high and triple a. and got blitzed in tripoli. Those are excuse me in high. Hey those were the early starts. He was not going long eight and a third of the three starts and it was really bad in the sixteen aaa innings. It hasn't been bad outside of the four homers giving up so he gets yeah his home. Park of oakland for shaman is going to be a hell of a lot better than anything in las vegas or the has to offer. Are you jumping on the mnay train before he comes up or is it a wait and see approach. Do we know what his schedule is. Potentially let me just go over the general schedule for them and kind of eyeball it because it's hard to know exactly what he's going to come back so so let me get that here for oakland. <hes> let's see and by the way i think as cels ardoz also working his way back so the two of them could be coming in tandem here so let's just start with next week. It's a new york for three. Don't want that the yankees but another two pack against the giants okay yeah that would be nice yup and then a four pack against case he he comes back in that six day range and that plausible considering ninety seven his final rehab start art from august fourth through august twenty nine. I think one of the encouraging th there's two encouraging things for me one that he's gone in his last two starts he's gone six innings and then five and two thirds when was that last one from his last one was it's eight thirteen at kansas city yesterday okay so <hes> he's gotten strikeouts in those two starts as well eight strikeouts in that six existing stretch and ten strikeouts yesterday versus kansas city's triple eighteen so he's he's staying in the game deep deep enough to get out to get a quality start and <hes> getting strikeouts. I think that kind of lends well to him having success at the major league level especially getting a pitch in oakland <hes> which is a nice little pitchers haven. I think i would kind of grab him especially in fifteen leagues even if it's just a stream in for a starter too yeah even if it's just to see what with the san francisco or k._c. If chamonix depending on when he comes back if everything it goes well with the last rehab that'd be great. If it gets pushed all the way to the end of the month the new york that's a different story but then it's home for six against the angels and the tigers and even the angels have some difficult parts in their lineup. I still wouldn't be as afraid of starting there <hes> and then of course if it's detroit then it's all systems go so keep an eye on an idea i agree. I think particularly if you're pitching starved and you're already turning over iraq. You're looking to get eflin right now. You go get maniaci ahead had a time anything either like the nice thing. I if if you're running low on fab or you're trying to conserve for the last six weeks you shouldn't have to to break your budget and don't like two three dollars because if somebody else wants to overpay let them because guys like keno he did go and a lot of leagues but there were some wigs were he. He's going he was going and he was the hottest thing going right now. Aquino was talk men and they were going at reasonable prices so sean. Minaya should be a sub sub five dollar bet therefore particularly. You're buying ahead of time. Alex dickerson is going to be activated after an oblique situation with the giants pablo sandoval all goes to the i. l. to take his place <hes> they basically trade spots. There dickerson was absolutely electric for the ninety eight plate appearances that he put up before this. I l stint six six homers. Three triples ten doubles three eighty six four forty nine seven seventy three bungie numbers bottom line he was kicking but can you come back and carry on on in mid eight hundred's opiates because he's not going to keep at twelve twenty. Nobody thinks is gonna do that. Can you <hes> but but can you keep can keep something in the mid eight hundred's with some punch because that's what he is is. A power guy fawkes dickerson. What do you think i don't think so well. I just i that's the giants fan. Folks coming at you at the honesty. Yeah i think he can be a an interesting adding player in maybe kind of league average in your fifteen team leagues but i don't expect him to be anything. Worth fawning over the park accepts too much power that lineups just absolutely atrocious awesome oh sarah i was trying to finish your sentence. I i we're not quite as in tune is we. We will be after spending a weekend together in arizona hell but it's yeah. I think you probably have admist hot streak. If you didn't pick up before again i'm talking like i don't know i think i think he can keep a mid eighteen hundreds what i do like that he comes off the gets the game today at home against oakland which then they go on the road getting shut out okay so <hes> if he's in that one than than homer bailey's cutting them up <hes> but this is alex nickerson we're talking with the with the pronouns there but beyond beyond that once they go on a on a away stand a road trip. I should say in a way stand cool life. Do i'm going to quit. I quit the podcast here. Charlotte take over in a way stand band sick brain functioning <hes> anyway he didn't play into a stickers that did not play in today's game but that so he's going to be there for the rhody at arizona at the cubs so i say pick them up if you need a little punch if it is like mid low eight hundred with some power and you can afford potential batting average hit. I think that's what you're really protecting against their as you mentioned the park always difficult particularly for a left handed guy so i'm not saying anything near the hot streak that we saw you know he hit six six homers in ninety eight plate appearances. What's he gonna get the rest of the year like two hundred point. Yeah i was gonna say about four or five. I keep going to repeat that but maybe in double the playing time yeah. I just think there is enough dickerson. I was gonna say. I just don't think there's enough upside to warrant <hes> the downside that's fair. We'll see we'll see how it goes and of course needs needs vary obviously when you're need offense vince. You're not hoping to go to san francisco to look for it. There was some intrigued with him. Though during that hahtrick that's dickerson moving on jeff. Mcneil hits the l. with with a hamstring situation. I don't like calling every injury of situations that i'm just an injury <hes> again. My brain does not work today. I guess i'm just so excited to see you on october that i. I can't talk straight but i've faded him a little bit this year. It was the one thing i will say. I did like it when it came to people wanting to prop up joey wendell. I was like well gimme jeff mcneil. I thought they were the same player gimme jeff mcneil as far as that goes so i had a little love for when it came to that debate but overall. I can't say that i was i was really trying to get jeff mcneil beyond that and he's really impressed. He's actually used a super happy. Bouncy fund ball clip along with the great average. We knew the average was going to be there but he's three thirty to four. Hundred five twenty nine with fifteen yaks even thrown informs on basis granted. It's been nine opportunities but jeff. Neil's been pretty nice assuming this injury is not something that hamstring is should fine. What do you think of the multi altea positional eligible jeff mcneil for next year in two thousand twenty. I kind of feel like he is early career justin turner war ooh where he's just getting that first power does this year but then even more that i mean that fits the it's the average plays multiple people positions yup. I work for like you're doing kind of a weird thing here. Because justin turner was as well now he didn't really break out with them but that that that gives us like an extra link. At least he could do it with the mets whereas turner left and then broke out so i'm going to be very interested especially. I'm not one of those this guy's at prioritizes average but he's third in the race for the n._f._l. Batting title right now. He's not what i really don't think that even if he comes back and he's fine. Let's say it comes back in two weeks continues on his trajectory of doing well. I don't think jeff mcneil's prices going going to soar. It's gonna go up from last year but i don't think it's going to be agreed just to where you're like. Oh i can't pay that and if you get cheaper batting average like you said you don't prioritize it usually because it's too expensive. I think that's why you usually fade. I mean this is not perfect analog because it was it was on memorial morial day and we've had plenty of excellence from mcneil sense then but he only went to fifty seven knows drafts and he was already doing well in fact. I kind of look exactly exactly where he was around that time his slosh well he was on the i l. at the time but he was hitting three thirty one four eighteen four sixty one macneil was so you know he's been better since particularly with the power but what even if he seventy picks from that to fifty seven seven a._d._p. You're talking <hes>. I have no problem taking him at that. At that level of around one eighty one seventy the guy is so for home runs a three hundred batting average yeah at the top of lineup even even if it's not a great one we'll see what the mets do in the off season and everything anything awful lineup no no yeah i'm on jeffrey neil. It's a bummer. They got hurt here but just ride it out. Bring him back. He converted me. That's another point in in the conference chamberlain by the way too quick trivia questions ones about mcneil because i'm looking kind of underneath nisa hood a little bit. I'm a bit concerned. Like what do you think is swing percentages what you said you're a big concern because obviously i would've said had not because he's such a good batting average guy low strikeouts fourteen percent clip yeah i would've said swing would be like i don't know fifteen percent or something. It's forty one. What is contact is just amazing play coverage. I mean he's got a seventy percent okay so he's making a ton of contact outside when he swing outside so he's like you know he's kind kind of wadi. Ask here as far as like as far as that obviously not the full profile here but that it really is he could be striking out only fourteen fourteen percent clip but swinging outside of the zone that much you know that's reminiscent of a <hes> well not the strike outweigh the that's the thing anytime i find a calm it kind of breaks down because the guys don't don't swing that much. It's forty percent on the swing right. Actually no this is this one does work. It's kinda reminiscent of like an eddie rosario and he swings a lot and doesn't have a lot of patients. You didn't take walk but he makes contact outside of the zone and if they can do damage on it. I'm all for it so you know i'm here for this with jeff mcneil to like i was saying good call by mcneil and talk me whenever i heard their name all year out. Chairman is what i would think of and he runs with both the talk one took awhile but <hes> big ups to him so hold on before you move on <hes>. That was a piece of trivia one. There's two there's two mcneil is third in the n._f._l. Batting title race christian yelich is to who's not who's leading the n._l. Batting title racer <hes> uh-huh. Josh bell nope his teammate though kevin newman no. I'm brian ronald yeah. I think i meant to say reynolds. When i said numan truthfully to reynolds has thirteen home runs is hitting three thirty eight. Oh my one didn't he only recently qualified to maybe he wasn't leading a while because he wasn't yet qualified fine yeah so it's going to be an i mean he. He's got a little bit of a lead on <hes> on christianity to going going to be interesting race down the stretch. If ryan reynolds when you know brian reynolds will look pretty good at the toppling of san francisco lineup. They could use a guy like really interested to see where in those are jerk thing to say really interested to see where he goes like in the too early mock drafts yup because that's another cheap batting average i think i don't think people are going to overspend on a guy like brian. Reynolds and i'm here to pick it up. I think i think guys like mcneil neill and reynolds and the aforementioned newman who's hitting three oh to a few other guys out there that do this kind of thing they could. Maybe help you use big when you are or maybe even lean into more of your no batting average thing earlier in the draft or even later at the ends of the draft but then in the middle you you pat it with these these guys here so that if you don't get a joey gallo hitting sixty five or whatever you're getting protected by these buddies brian reynolds types 'cause. I don't think hans john's or l. Bertos who is worth in the american league batting tyler is absurd or louis arise in in minnesota whose like basically kind of a willens as to d._o. But not as big of a cult favorite because he's not a portly guy who also plays catcher somehow ronald a kunia. I have not heard of that guy so don't really know anything about him late by the way. I don't really have anywhere but i fully support him going. In the first round. I wonder how much victory the people who took him in the first. That got crapped on our doing. They've got to be loving. I think more deka at the yeah yeah. I get a <music> virtually daily reminder that i took a altoona they over kunia by calling weather wax in our main event qualifier fire sorry. I wasn't trying to roast you there i didn't i didn't realize he he just he owned a pretty close to daily reminder. You know he sends me. I remember it was like a thing that modique took him fourth in arizona like <hes> look at him overreacting to the hot finish that he had maybe he i should've gone earlier. Let's be honest. Maybe he should've gone ahead of knowing aired auto in that draft as well but a kuni is amazing derailment there. Let's get over to garcia speaking speaking of batting average another guy who sitting pretty well but he's gonna hit the i l. right. Now i believe with an oblique yes least favorite injury so that stinks <hes> hit seventy eight nine thirty average and you had a few years ago but still happened. The pop seventeen homers sneaky nine stolen bases for missile garcia. Eh as far as the oblique goes that's right. That's my concern cutting him shower leagues. I'm cutting them in all formats except for only take. You can't do it but yeah it's. It's a huge bummer because he's putting up that milky peak milk caroline with ray com isn't like super sexy but it's super valuable as you're like number four outfielder yup. It's a it's a glue piece that look at the end of the year and it was worth like twenty two dollars in your damp. I got him for three dollars or whatever the case may be so great comp there. I agree with you mixers. I think gotta move on oblique so the worst a._l. Hold on impre y'all moncada going out on a cab for the white sox. We haven't heard much from him or tim anderson really they haven't been really in the spotlight lately but they're both continuing their break out. Seasons moncada has a three zero one three fifty eight five thirty thirty-five slash with twenty homers seven steals now. He's only played ninety seven games so far so when he returns he'll probably finish with what <hes> round one hundred and twenty five ish games by the time he gets back from this hamstring strain. Where does moncada's value i next year because he didn't quite complete the breakout but the bottom line is going to look good unless he he sputters to the finish line. Yeah it'd be interesting to see what he does rest the way he he's become more aggressive this year fire which is obviously a he's made a concerted effort to be nor aggressive at the plate and i think it's working obviously he's walking get his lowest rate in the major leagues but i mean he's added this power this batting average has i mean that's obviously going to come down. I think think he's probably more of a two sixty two seventy hitter. I just have no idea where the industry's going to put him in terms of like a._d._p. Ian ranks next year remember where he went in the too early <hes> last year. Excuse me not too early in the <hes>. What's it called. Oh i'm sure he went way way higher than we got because that was when that was when he and anderson were getting all of their buzz so he went fifty. Excuse me anderson went fifty sixth. Moncada went sixty. I do you think he improves upon or acts to that goes up higher or or kind of stays where he is from cada. I think he's going to kind of stay where he is which isn't barring like september right. Yeah i mean if he goes is often september. All bets are off top third. He's only twenty four years old. Yeah i mean that's the thing with moncada here. You know those that were kind of writing it off and i had my doubts for sure because the batting average with the strike outs that was my biggest concern i thought power speech scher but is it going to be with the two-thirty average. It's going to be painful same with tim. Anderson had some concerns with him but i like i'm okay with inkata's changed here because it's not like as walk rates nothing. It's it's still eight percent. He'll still take a walk on you. If you're going to throw all around him he striking out last two hundred twenty eight percent clip after thirty three percent for two years so i like moncada aw i would take him as a top seventy guy. I got to see how he finishes before. I can really move much higher than that though yeah. I think that's fair to aces looking looking like things are going to be better. Garrett cole was scratched with a hamstring but he is feeling better still unknown if it's going to be an eye ouston but then a groin excuse accuse me growing growing growing growing growing for garrett cole but then the ron boy the back muscle for max scherzer. He says he's ready to return with these two guys <hes>. I guess guess what i'm really looking for is not so much about their outlook here because obviously once they're back. You're putting them in your line up. You need them but for next year. Where do you have sherzer in coal because i did my top thirty. Yesterday i had shares her to coal four with the one caveat that kohl resigns in houston he would be my number one. Wow oh. I don't know i'm saying like that is like some hot. Take or something or i'm taking back. My i have no problem. It's just everything that they've done because you look at the top of the heap right. Now is very lender sherzer degrom for me. They're all bit older so gimme the younger guy who's doing the same thing but if he leaves houston i got to have a little bit more trepidation an kinda keeping more in the four five six range depending on how cole bueller sale finish out doc where where do you stand with and co for next year probably one for me okay so maybe the coles one for me just because we finally have seen a little kind of chink in the armor of of of yasser max is human believe it or not weird right. He's had a few deal. I l stints this year so beat himself up with the bun <hes> first rounders right and a fifteen teamer yeah yeah probably i would think so right and sure <hes> even sale and you're in some leagues i think candy. I don't think all six are going to be first rounders unders but i think those are your first round pitchers. I think if you're if you're moving up for me my next three are bieber club insurance josh. I think if you're moving them up to the first round. You're trying a little bit too hard i think. Are you going to take a pitcher in the first round next year. I think that becomes the the the more important question because they may be going in the first round but that it doesn't mean we're taking him there correct and i would take cole if he was there around like a ten pick if i'd picked ten. I don't think there's any chances her her car especially if he goes back to houston zero chance so i think the bottom line answering your question without caveats probably not is he a for robin cole a first rounder founder if he goes to new york probably even more so for some people because of the yankee tax. Your question is more. Should he be and i'll say yes still i think he's still should be but i will say. That's the exact kind of landing spot that would push me down a little bit. You know how feel about guys with their first year of a giant deal in a new spot. There has been some research on it to blake murphy to s._p. For me where you found that they are a bit worse. Some of that is the normal regression of coming off of a big this season to even earn the type of contract that you have but i just like a year settling not everyone peels back. Patrick corbin's been excellent. He's he's also been the third dog on the team. Cole would be going there to be the guy and he's second dog to overland right now which i'm not making any comments on saying he can't be top dog. I'm saying there's pressure at that and we don't know how a guy deals with it. So if code does go somewhere like new york or boston went crazy one of the big market teams where he has to be top dog i would i would pull back as far as drafting him for twenty twenty. I wanna see the adjustment year. He's never pitched in houston. John sorry in in new york against the say. I i really think he has since just the ninety seven degrees in my office go to sleep get off my back but <hes> yeah so he was just garrett. Cole was <hes> after by them and then decided go to u._c._l._a. So the fact he's never pitched. He might do it in the playoffs and then we'll get to see what's what i believe. He's he's an absolute stud. I love him but i really just hope be stays in houston and he'll be my number. One guy <hes> speaking of potential first rounders for nicotine's junior back injury aiming for friday returned nothing too crazy there so that's why we're not so focused focused on the injury and more looking ahead. I think i did ask you this already but i forgot the answer so i'll just be honest about it when we were talking some twenty twenty two stuff is totti's a first round for next year. He's going to be close. I mean he's going to be in a lot of first round. He might have first round a._d._p. V._p. It's more of whether or not just in mason he gets there. It's gonna be very very close for me. I i know the batting average is is going to tail off. I don't think anybody's expecting him to hit three hundred next year but it doesn't have to crater either because if he improves the strike because he's twenty he can't drink yet. He hasn't had a chance to go crack open a beer pop open baseball's baseball savant and realized that he needs to maybe swing less. I i mean you can do that without the beer but you need the beer to vertically. That's just how it works science science right there so until you can legally do that we have. We have to give a chance to at least improve on his own here so again. I think he's going to track very close to a first around eighty p. I won't be afraid to do it. I don't know that i currently have him as a top fifteen. If i'm just eyeballing it he's damn close like you said. Don't i know it's a a little bit of a cop out that we're just saying he's he's close instead of committing one way or the other but he's he's excellent fernando. Tateishi juniors absolutely excellent the bat who was a <hes> very very low on him coming. They don't ever bring that up online no now but the bats arrest season projections haven't finishing with thirty thirty one twenty season gross there now the highest by the way the bats now the highest and you know listen. I buy like derek. I talk with them. I understand and his process you know acting like he goes in and says. I hate from entities junior. Let me push down his numbers as opposed to talking about him with his system and actually having a human conversation with senators being a dildo about it <hes> i like that the system moves though and when it does get new information particularly on rookies now he's out in front so he might start behind with some of these but he wants to see. What's what are the bat you know the system system does but then when you put in the information of three hundred and seventy two major league plate appearances of excellence now the bats like yeah. This guy is good. We just didn't know yet because because he had fifty billion percent strike coury yeah. I mean the more projects to some guests to see a player. They're going to have better and more accurate information. I mean i. I like derek a lot too. I think he's one of the nicest people in the industry. <hes> and i've always enjoyed hanging out with him. When i've had the opportunity so <hes> i think he gets unfairly treated win. His system is down on a player. It's it's the same it's the same type of person like like bill ripken on m._l._b. The investors in that points out every time the shift doesn't work. Nobody's saying it's a hundred a percent. I think that derek himself understands that it's light on rookies and something needs to be done about that because the game has changed. He got he got he. When the bat had just twelve twelve homers projected for jordan alvarez you know and he has seventeen in forty eight games but now he's on he's in. He's the high man again to eighty. I five average is the highest ten homers are the highest one forty two of the highest so i don't think it's just like oh. I was wrong here. Let me overreact the other way again. I think it's the data i think the bat moves becker than other systems and i i liked that. I liked that they take the system in and they're ready to say okay we now. I'll see something about this guy. In the majors we can put that into the mix and give him a more stable projection. Yeah is he a first. I ran for you tease yeah. It's really close man. That's speed. I mean here's the thing okay well. What do you think totti's juniors batting average is is actually going to be here. Let's say he has eight between okay. If you're saying eighty than i have to because i can't one side of my mouth take trae turner earn the first round but not for nato totti's junior and i know that he hasn't put up quite of the same stolen base rate of turner yet but he's also put up more power so if you're just adding homers plus as bs it's right there and i do think turner still a first rounder so at that point if you're giving me a two eighty i was gonna say give me nia to seventy to eighty then yes. I am taking totti's junior in the first round because i think they're going to be better next year too. I think they are they're going to build on this year and we don't have dundalk conversation about whether they should have had tattoos and pat again but they're going to continue you know they're trying to open their window right now. They thought they opened it this year but even better next. I hear it's so hard because we just had a cautionary tale in that ronaldo. Kunia guy who i know it's just couldn't just couldn't didn't live up to the hype and what he did the previous year again yeah. I you know you talk about a kunia. I t's and that kind of class of player he he can not only build a rookie season but but greatly improve upon padres team's only gonna get better around him. Yep yep absolutely so well. That's been a news. He's here carlos carrasco. Obviously battling leukemia gonna face live batters fantastic news. I can't wait to see him get back. I really hope he gets back <hes> in in his able to pitch at points this year. Maybe pitching the playoffs for them. Let's assume he does all right. Let's assume <unk> has a rehab comes back decent september number quality you know he's himself for september in the playoffs at that point. Where would you rank carrasco because right now. I took kind of the easy way out of this. I'm just gonna park them in the honorable mentions. I gotta see what's going on. The gooky. Mia situation is the only concern right now. I don't care about fantasy until that's done but if we get clean bill of health and everything goes well. Where do you rank gresko next year as a pitcher. He's gonna be outside of my top twenty five okay <hes> enlighten thirty no probably not. I'd have to really sit down and kind of spot with this. I mean probably between thirty five and forty okay. Don't get me wrong. I hope he comes back. He's one of my favorite pitchers to watch. I was early in on the hype for for crass. Go that being said we're not talking about a guy who's had very good track record of health to begin with and we're gonna talk about guy who's going to be coming off a cancer treatments mints and chemotherapy and radiation or whatever they're doing for the leukemia and asking him to come back in a season a season after he's. He's only thrown sixty five innings and be an ace for us. I just think that's a really tall order in a lot to ask out of a guy. I'll be really interested to see where he goes. In drafts. Yeah i think so much of it is going to depend on this finish that he has in how healthy he is battling leukemia two then we can decide decide where carlos carrasco goes because if he does look like carlos carrasco that we know i think it will be top twenty five if he's more of a muted situation and has to miss time i'm again because maybe fatigue sets sets in that. I think people were really peel back and we'll have to see what happens for for twenty twenty but hoping for the best with with them great pitcher seem all all reports suggest great guy as well just hoping that everything comes through with regards to the to the leukemia four are carl's crafts go. Let's talk about a few performances now and some more twenty twenty outlooks actually is an before. It's like my favorite thing. I don't know why but right <hes> when i go on somebody's baseball reference page happens to be their birthday this aaron deputy evidence is so fun for me. I don't know i'm lame. I this is the stuff i enjoy. It's josh expels birthday. <hes> so happy. Birthday is twenty seventh birthday. Do you know that even with the big wall that he had he still leads baseball with ninety arabise and he was he was trashed for a little minute there nothing you know. I don't want to overstate it but he was. He was in his slump which he was bound to hear me he had. I'd like a five million okay so he was basically came out of the all star break and i'm sure i'm sure the homerun derby ruins you clowns sounds. Were just salivating over themselves about how how i was right. He had a one eighty to ninety six to forty six with no homers in his i seventy one plate appearances out of the all-star break for josh bell and took them through july thirty first in nine august games three forty four four forty seven seven thousand one with four homers including those four homers coming in the last three games a two one in one. He is electric again now again again. Let's keep them on like a normal trajectory. Let's say he finishes with a nine sixty. Five p. s. like forty one homers bunch bunch of a bunch of a bunch of runs. Where's josh bell next year who i think he's probably going to go in the second round amount. I don't know that i will be willing to necessarily take him there because of performance our first base or what visit because you coming into the year i loved him but i especially love this value and there's just no trillion that his value value is so low that i forgot him on the first base preview if you'll remember so we had to bring them up in a special segment and we were positive but we did not see this. Oh it was mostly league ariel cohen. He went off yeah he he. He identified him as the top bargain. If seasons if alex gets mcneil area gets that kind of situation i don't know maybe i shouldn't be so worried that he's going to take biggest back in power it just it just so hard to see him hit forty here after he hit twelve so i know what was so annoying that he had twelve after twenty six homers because he played you know even forty fewer plate appearances that does not cover fourteen fewer homers for josh bell so it was very frustrating and he's pacing for forty four now. It is his age twenty seven season. It is the all age twenty seven break. Raise your hand if you've been in fantasy long enough to remember when that was at the thing that's been blown out of the water by age curves now. I just figured if we're going to talk about the the homerun run derby effect to might as well twenty seven things so we have a breakdown of the verduci effect look great. That's yeah so second round. I think you're right. I am willing to take him there depending on how my first round goes what my what my team plan is. I'm open to this because bell makes good contact takes. This is walks <hes>. We saw flashes of the power before. I don't think it's just ball related of course that helps him. I think he is taking advantage of it but a switch hitter with this kind of power even even in a park that suppresses it going actually age it will be twenty seven because he just turned twenty seven today the cutoffs july first. I'm going going to be in on it. Next year is twenty-seven this is technically. We haven't even gotten the power jump yet. Have we fifty six homers homer next. Get ready for it all right here we go. Who would you rather have josh bell or freddy freeman. You know i kind of knew you were going to say that and i really hate because that's very difficult. I think i have to go freeman because bell wants to be freeman and freemuth already there here with several years of this excellence. He's only going to be thirty which is not. I'm not scared of a thirty year old. That team is silly a kunis getting a lot of the hype very deservedly but don't look now at at what are always is doing. He's at two ninety nine fifty four five zero five with what he's been doing. Your favorite guy dancy swanson still been positive josh donaldson speaking good and i think austin riley will be fine in the long term. He was overly electric. When he first came. He's been completely awful. Sent then and now on the i l. he's going to be somewhere in the middle next. I think he'll be like a what one fifteen one twenty ninety five range opium plus w._r._c. plus kind of guy next year with power so it's gonna be a good law. Do you know by the way he's going to get a second this year but it's only his second one one hundred rabi season for freeman. Wow which is why you have to be careful overly using our to mentor a guy because if you would say that he's bad had because of that for any reason teams has been bad exactly. Would you rather have josh bell or peter lonzo. I have come around on the poor but i'm gonna go bell on that. One okay the josh you. He doesn't look like a polar bear. Josh bear <hes> josh beckett spell or one soto hole that one that one's tough they go about it a little bit differently but i think the net value is very similar. I think i give the batting average stability. If i'm doing a project i'm gonna go soeda a little bit more and he has that chip and speed this year ten home or ten steals in tries had five last year in one hundred seven sixteen games so we knew that soto could could give you a little bit out of a chip in there and he's going to be twenty one next year. I love bella. Bama goes soto there yeah. I'm just surprised is that that soda has ten stolen bases. I think he had four of them in a game so that elms ten for eleven though it's not like the jeff mcneil contribution asian which is four for nine or even diverse is like nine for seventeen so really still forming. He didn't miss remembering numbering that so yeah. He's all once based games. That's just been chipping in little by little throughout the season just quietly doing doing his wants to. He's not a guy that speed necessarily either so i don't know smartvestor any basis with smart based learning and want sort of showing that so no shade on bell but i'm going to go soto their buy buy buy an inch and i'm probably have them very close to each other in composite ranking for sure. Let's move on here. Let's go and jose ramirez. Obviously we've talked about a lot this year but for once not once i guess we have recently though to or finally talking about in very positively and he couldn't be hotter right. Now i mean he absolutely looks like the guy who was drafted number three overall by so many folks he's clicking. I swear i watch a lot of indians games because they've been playing like like minnesota in boston and so i like to watch you know teams that are a both playoff caliber going ahead when i'm not watching the tigers and and so he's going off now and it's not just like a short little run here. We're talking about forty four games. One hundred eighty seven point parents for jose ramirez with a three twenty three fifty the eight six fifty one line twelve homers which is a forty five homer pace for where he's at seven steals which would be paid to twenty-six over a full season ramirez mirror looks like he's figured things out again with his power and that was really what was missing batting average too but the power was was absent it was gone and now he's back up to seventeen homers already. Is there a way that jose ramirez rallies enough to where you'd take them in the first round next year. That's that's the class <unk>. We're gonna be here yup man. I think i don't i don't. I don't think that's possible. I guess it is his as right. Now is twenty five thirty thirty five just with the bad to forty seven average but at twenty five thirty five if that's what he finishes at two fifty-five batting outing average if totti's is a potential first rounder house jose ramirez not if he ventured strong exactly. We're doing these challenges to ourself. Hey yeah you're right. If this talent pro does occur first round we really are right because there's so many interesting bats right now too and then it goes back to is your question about the pictures in the first round. Maybe you do dig because they're so. You're going to get such an brilliant second round hitter. Maybe you do go with garrett cole at pick. You know oh six because when you come all the way back you're still going to be choosing between one soto and josh bell for your first hitter or a ramirez. I'd even father you don't have. That's what i wanna on a c. Two i almost don't want to draft him because i wanna see what the market does without me taking him. That's a that's a good point and then that's always a really good strategy for or your first few mark drives is don't. Don't be the guy like in the office. Some guys really interested to see what the market does. Is it too early mugs. I think alive times industry guys wanna set the high pick on a guy. I've been guilty. I've absolutely been guilty but it's actually better to let someone else. Do it. Kinda wanna see where we had a few years ago when i did it. I was in every single mock draft and i took startling martin in like three of the four mocks we did and they totally totally ruined his a._d._p. Because i was the one taking him yeah that's is so duly influence. That never really got a vibe of what the market wanted on him so but it's it's one of those things where it's taught me. It's like okay. Mock drafts are about seeing where other people are valuing things not wear. Necessarily you are so you can write down. Who you you would've taken but sometimes it's better especially with. These guys like ramirez to see where he's gonna fall. I mean right now. In the second half so far he's got ten homerun six stolen bases hidden three twenty three forty six six eighty cheese the six because if he's not if jose ramirez is not hitting a double one. I look up and see him. It's a it's a homer. It's an extra base hit yeah. I'm telling you he's lacing things left and right every time i will you wanna talk about just being a pure hitter. <hes> his contact percentage in the second half is ninety percent. He's zone zone. Contact percentage is ninety six point eight percent if you throw the ball in his own jose ramirez is going to hit it and somehow went over for today so whoever that picture was. Let's get him a cy young because he stopped. He's not funny because if it was i'm going to have yeah we we haven't had a long silence in a while so i'm glad we raise stopping dead in my tracks. Johnny whole staff game bryan bryan johnson marcus marcus walden darwin's hernandez josh taylor nathan evolved who actually got the dub andrew cash ner brandon workman and so they pitched a hell of of a game bieber pitched on by the two runs and he gave up those alone would have been enough because they only scored one but then nick goody got bullets a little bit so it's a five one loss but anyway jose ramirez is okay. Let's let's assume that he won't get a first-round a._d._p. Barring just like literally keeping his second half pays for the rest of the year because then bottom line i would be too good <hes> let's say he does finish kind of like with the elite counting stats but but a two fifty average and so you a._d._p.'s around the second round does he become a target for ramirez then somebody who like i gotta get him at pick twenty to twenty. Let's call. I mean you have to use only gonna be twenty seven next last year and we just discussed about the twenty seven year power. It's guaranteed for performance to yeah. I'm going to be back in if if he's going in the second round and i think they're going to be people especially. The beauty is people starting to perform right. Now is <hes> it's hidden in football yeah. The football guys aren't around so though i think there's also been a little bit of <hes> in recent years of almost it's like a backlash and a._d._p. To that only because we guys like a mongoose type off so i in terms of a._d._p. Coming into next season. I almost wonder if it's football guys going back through the second half numbers to see what they missed and now we need to. I let me talk about this. Yeah don't and then you know. Hey don't let this be hidden. This guy was amazing in the second half. Let's get his a._d._p. A._d._p. Backup instead of letting letting people sleep on him and ramirez could be that guy because remember what happened with moncey. He started taking off around august. He he became kind of you. Know chic guy that a group of people were in on and then he just kept too damn good to where nobody nobody was hidden hidden on mondesi even if you are big time football guy who just asked out on your leagues in august because he had to start focusing on football you still knew that modesty was just too legit because he went off and had a second round a._d._p. For crying out loud so that could happen. I do wonder where this the guy will go. He hit six he had six hit yesterday including four doubles and it wasn't an extra inning game. It was just a run of the the mill nine inning game was ten dammit either way <hes> still amazing six for six with four doubles for rafael devers excellent work on him. He now has the m._l._b. Most hits and one hundred and fifty eight the m._l._b. high in doubles at forty three three a._l. High of ninety three rabies and m._l._b. high of eight caught stealing as i mentioned earlier eight for sixteen is his as his stolen base but they let the twenty two year old rafael devers keep running every once in a while. I'll take the chickens because mostly still don't use nets deal so i don't care i'll l. As long as they keep giving them like a yellow light to to get those japan's i'm here for but let's focus on the power output and the big breakout here for rafael devers this this this is chocolate for best shape of his life because that was a big story about how he cut wait. He felt he was carrying too heavy last year and he slimmed down down and he looks like the guy who was a mega project talk to me about raphael denver's in his twenty twenty outlook. I wonder if i think we were we're seeing the beginning. Just it's the tip of the iceberg in terms of his breakout like i think i think there is a forty home run potential in his bat. I was just about to say i. I think there are multiple thirty thirty. Five one hundred seasons basically like a j._d. Martinez at on the infield right now and they'll probably move forward. I eventually but that's the kind kind of that's the kind of impact bat. I'm looking at here with j._d. Himself which will keep their runs in rb is boosted. I mean i think theoretically i mean wins. Moorlands lind's contract of next year. I think it could be as early as next year. You think they'll probably keep him yeah. They'll probably keep deep dover's there at least one more season but i think they've got a couple of guys in the minor leagues who are third baseman that are interesting and like nick nor cut cut <hes> so but i think he's probably a season or two away. <hes> yeah i just i think he is is. I think we're gonna be talking about him. In the same vein that we're talking about josh bell and then go go on soda <hes> yeah in one soda so we're talking about a guy who is probably going to be a fourth round pick going into next year. That should deliver top two round talent or i oh i think i think the arezzo jona and maybe the too early mocks. He sits around for third but then by draft season. He's going to be a fringe second. Rounder under rafael devers is so that's where i see it going and i'm willing to pack. It's a it's a high freight for what it is but this was this was heralded prospect as well. I do believe in in pedigree and and guys panning out to where they are didn't wanna freak out when he had a mediocre year last year twenty one year old holding his own. I know it wasn't great right but he held his own for four hundred ninety appearances. I saw no reason not to buy in then you learn about the way you feel even more confident that there's a tangible change to things too and rafael devers has been excellent so i agree somewhere in that second fourth-round range depending on your league and all that but i would any of those prices right now last guy. I wanna talk about yuli gurriel. He was a late addition to this because the more frequent homers now unlike all these other amazing guys have been talking about. He's not some young up and coming back. He's he's a thirty five year old first baseman who was supposed to be going back to something we talked about earlier that late batting average type he doesn't cost too much. You know we kind of reminded me of his is pre free 2017. Excuse me pre twenty eighteen david peralta where you weren't seeing a whole bunch of power but you're getting that batting average with the little contribution of power but then all the wind hit thirty homers last year and now gary l. has become like he's taking the same trajectory but coming into the air pre two thousand eighteen politics now it seems to just be like regular old david peralta and by the way i'll mention david birthday. I just went on his page and i just saw it on on his on his birthday happy birthday. This is a big day for for baseball players. Apparently clearly it's also giovanni goggles his birthday. You might as well get all the guys who are active right now. It's just those dylan covy but anyway yuli gurriel heels birthdays six nine it it is he shares my mom's birthday. Mom understands the greatness of her birthday. I not know abbott in two thousand five homers now for yuli gurriel. How could i is there any way. I could have gotten to believe that that was going to be his home. Run output this year. What what would you incentivize. Eh told me we're playing with bouncy balls this year. I would have been like all right sure why not i mean that's all this is playing one hundred eighty nine games for some jason yeah. We're we're. We're we're playing in playing with balls that just are not fair to pitchers and so that's my my biggest issue with a guy like your yell is what happens when they're if they fix the ball extra because what we saw when this happened in two thousand seventeen was that in two thousand eighteen they came out with a more regular ball and so i would really expect them to do the same coming coming into two thousand and twenty. Here's one reason i think you're protected from that. Though with gergo specifically he's old fantasy market hates old guys. This is being thirty six will mitigate the hype of what's going to be like thirty thirty three homer summer or higher. Even perhaps like thirty three home run season the fact he's gonna be thirty six next year will mitigate that if he's around pick what if i give you pick one eighty or later where you angry then i'd be totally down for that just because he offered batting average in exactly because he just this goes back extra batting average these days it goes back to hit you know quote unquote just hitting two nine with fifteen homers and that's only one hundred thirty nine in one hundred thirty six games. That's kind of his pace in seventeen and eighteen if he does one hundred fifty games. You're talking like to ninety and twenty so south s._p._n. Player ater for first base this year. Give us some info. I'm sure that's what cody bellinger obviously number one freddy eddie freeman number two and then it goes all over the place de la mayhew is the third player he does grow and you could almost make a case depending on how your team structure is that you might be better off using digital may ask. I carlos santanas v. I love l. Yuli gurriel is six. Danny santana's seven. Oh my god that's crazy. Dude and gurriella reality probably going to move up a spot from two homers say you might leapfrog santana. That's an whereas lonzo. He's gotta be top ken eighth and then rizzo manzini who claim any. I wrote about him. In the i think the rodeo ride up recently and it just putting together a quietly excellent season here he really is and i got imagine hundred christian walker they start to pop maxson san jose abreu and dosier walker hosmer is fifteenth gross. You don't get the paul goldschmidt until seventeen. Reese hoskins is twenty. I did you did you skip gallo or has fallen that allo aloe is twenty seconds. That's a bummer man he was going to that breakout was awesome thirty. I damn joey motto thirtieth sucks. I mean such a bummer dude year boy dell com- brera <hes> is forty third who would ever draft him. You have to be so stupid to do that. Oh wait i did so first base got better on the fly but similar to like catcher but obviously a little bit more name value. It was different fifty ninth see we knew it. That's why we said faded. We told you you take a year to pan out sure but like hey man we don't have the timetable on everything speaking about taking too long to pan out a right above <hes> matt carpenter your boy jake bowers desperately bring. We're having a good show yeah. I know it's just i feel like we started on such a high note talking about my win in the f. as in <hes> in megan just i needed to crush you. That's rude rude absolutely well. I'm bringing up again that you foolishly didn't put your beasley lineup into three dollars thing where you could have won a couple hundred dollars and all your daughter a gift or something that you're going to skip out on her birthday and let's be honest. You're gonna skip out more because this could be a yearly thing if they move this. If that timing coming lines up because i know colette hasn't seen a halloween from one of his kids and i don't know how long you've only been two birthdays in like like a little on twitter there you go mrs halloween with both keys and the daughter's birthday so you both you're both going to be never met mrs colette ah but i can tell you my wife will castrate me if the if i missed too many birthday yearly especially once they you know this man done type of situation unless they moved the you've got you've got an i._b._m. L._b._j. Move it back to where it was for crying out loud. I don't even understand why they would it makes the playoffs. It makes absolutely no sense. I don't wanna get into it. I'll get fired up plus. Get ready for trivia but great showed they great job with your lineup yesterday so excited that we're going to be hanging out and just two months now almost two months to the day to be quite honest. It's right around this middle of the month time here so that's going to be excellent. Do you want to do a twenty twenty draft soon where we do the first maybe two or three eight rounds. I think that would be interesting thing to do with a guest. I fully agree with that. Uh we we should get someone. We have on the show before. I have some folks in mind we shall talk via text all right. Let's do that. I have a whining charlotte ready to eat. You gotta get ready for trivia just she has been on the show charlotte. You're always show you're not you can't drought. She says she has some good picks but she can't be on. We'll have a guest for that. We will be back early next week talk.

Key diplomats are providing inside information to Congress

"Everyone I'm David Chalian the CNN political director this is the daily DC impeached and watch every weeknight we're giving updates and analysis into this fast moving impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump in a few minutes we'll be talking to CNN legal at least I personally started asking why this Ukraine money had been held up and repeated emails to the National Security Council Eiser in a real way and suggested that Bolton essentially went ballistic after hearing about what was going on with Ukraine so Security Council a lawyer or or was it the intelligence community either way he told her to go and talk to a lawyer and he's of information that we're learning today from what she said behind closed doors a relate to the EU ambassador Sunlen this hotel year the the dismissal of John Bolton did the I don't think we know whether or not how much the president new of John Bolton's antenna up on this issue but come in and essentially say nothing to see here or whether he's actually going to come in with some detailed information that I need so thank you for doing this week there's been some reporting today I guess we're still learning drip drip drip a bit more of what field the hill a big donor to Donald Trump who was basically part of the Rudy Giuliani side shown diplomacy with Ukraine suggesting that story of the week and probably the most important thing she did is she brought in the name of John Bolton the former national security this season infighter why wouldn't John Bolton himself go and blow the whistle on this it's well known that he didn't have that great relation she makes she saw him as a potential national security threat yeah potential national security but it's also important say the big question I think is oh the story so one question is why didn't John Bolton do this himself you know this guy is a firebrand he's puck nation ship with President so maybe he's just trying to save his job or maybe there was a question of loyalty or maybe he didn't think he'd be believed in wanted somebody else but I couldn't get an answer from them I they told me what they thought it wasn't but they couldn't say what it was but right around that time one of the things that's been under whether the SUNLAND IS GONNA turn out to be an adverse witness if you will to the House of Representatives investigators or whether he's going to I it was not that long after that Bolton was dismissed well there were some curious things around August twenty ninth or so when up so didn't he if are called he ordered her to go talk to count -solutely he ordered her to go talk to council at the Yeah I've been asking and I haven't seen reporting on this yet so this is a little more speculative but I just wonder if this may have been part rain and Rudy Giuliani suggesting it was or likening it to a drug deal and suggesting Giuliani is a bomb who's going to blow us all is to be investigated further potentially damaging to the administration is he John Dean R. G. Gordon Right but Fiona Hill obviously is the things that were coming out of their suggested he was all concerned about China and influence in Ukraine and was warning Ukraine I guess the only White House employees former white has met his action National Security Council who's actually testified so far gone up and talk to investigators and the afforded about this is that John Bolton was over in Ukraine and he was having conversations with some of the leadership there and the articles and tweets and Ah to tread lightly in the relationship with China so a lot of us came away thinking well maybe this is a China thing I'd like to hear more about whether that was a cover story or whether that was really just John Bolton being John Bolton but these are the questions that could asked if they ever subpoenaed him and bring him in yeah I agree with you the big question this week is going to be what kind of witnesses sunland is he does he just remain a trump royalist or do we learn that even if he didn't have a concern to raising alarms do we learn from his story oppressor Murray Shimon Peres that the federal investigation into Rudy Giuliani the southern district of New York looking into the former mayor by the way the former head there's actually a counter intelligence piece of this probe which that is a whole new area of investigation that was sure is so the longer a counter Intel investigation goes on the more important it becomes to the government so and this has been going on for the southern district of York when he was US attorney so the really only loves opera and this is sort of operatic in its nature right now but a little more truth of what was going on here then we then we have to date I want to mention this new reporting that just came out in the last few minutes before we started recording this podcast from our colleagues and the thing about counterintelligence investigations number one Evan Perez reporting is that this had been going on for months I think they've been reporting that the government's looking into had been looking into Giuliani's business dealings for at least six months it seems like so there's while it's a it's a tantalizing piece of information but it doesn't seem to help Giuliani or his client the president definitely more to learn there and I do think every day we're learning that Rudy Giuliani is a bit more potentially exposed legally which is also perhaps why he's I am fascinated by the confluence of the Syria story and the president's Remember to create an ad like this one visit pure winning dot com slash. CNN appeared from being the president's top spokesperson on this matter I do have one more question for you joe out of the White House today aw yeah or his other clients Ukrainians who obviously were indicted but they love Me Gore seventy but yes impeachment with the million dollar question is important to say that impeachment is not it's a political process and it's also illegal process when you're talking to folks on the hill is is there any concern among Republicans that they are so not wanting to rally around the president right now because of Syria that that could impact you know what is who is president trump going to get to defend him if he keeps burning his bridges with people like that impeachment now fighting with the president going back and forth on this issue of Syria and he feels passionately about it just like a lot of other Republicans and She decided no I don't need to hold this vote she's on the record saying I could hold it I have the votes for it can you see any reason not to hold the boat well I think the reason opposition to many in his own party about his action to pull out those troops of northern Syria with this story going on right now as well because at impeachment inquiry and in Nixon and Clinton the House committees adopted identical sets of rules which are and she's got some potentially vulnerable members the folks who are in districts that trump won and I think she'd rather not have those folks on the record and he's sooner than they have to the second reason is that once you actually have the vote saying you're doing an impeachment inquiry the next thing the White House is going to be talking about is the rules for conducting the Impeachment Watch I'm David Jerry Jones is still with me and we're excited to welcome impeachment specialist our new colleagues C. N. N. legal analyst Ross garber thanks for being here Ross I'm happy to be here I wanted to ask you about this issue that cropped up again in the House of Representatives yesterday this notion of whether or not the house should hold an actor will vote on a formalizing the impeachment inquiry right Nancy Pelosi announced that they were moving ahead with formal inquiry Republicans seized upon this on other issues it another thing that just cannot help him yeah I can't stress enough what a significant break I don't think we've seen a break with his own party like we are over this series cross-examine witnesses had the right to call witnesses had the right to present evidence and there was sort of a general agreement between the majority and the minority that they'd coordinate coverage begins October twenty second five thirty one to welcome back to the daily DC take the time that the president needs a united front among Republicans. I mean today at the press covers the way he's now fighting Lindsey Graham I get that it's a separate issue but I'm just wonder but the politics is still very important and when you have Lindsey Graham who seems to be one of the president's biggest supporters up there who is also one of the impeachment managers during the Clinton keep on calling witnesses so that is going to be the next field for debate we're going to hear it one way or the other but Pelosi knows once there's a vote that the dawn of the new NBA season brings many anticipated debuts Rafer seasons go and a new era in La Opening night twenty nineteen presented by auto trader issue and just at the wrong wrong moment for Joe Stay right there we've got plenty more to talk about CNN legal analyst Ross garber is going to join the conversation right after this quick break all they can do is watch TV and talked to reporters to try to figure out it's a bad situation for them I think yeah very a legitimate bipartisan result and so I think the White House you know actually could make a convincing case let's go back let's go back to the Nixon rules table is an option but you know other members of the Judiciary Committee I can't be involved in this testimony can't even in thinking that it's better to not hold a vote probably two reasons one is it forces her members to go on the record and say something about impeachment the highlight some of the differences talking about Yes yes so the president's lawyers in both of those situations had the right to cross examine witnesses have the right to talking point that she has not held a vote the way that we saw in the last two impeachment processes in the country and I guess I look we haven't had very many impeachments in this country we've had pretty much one successful presidential impeachment effort I think people perceive that the there's no requirement in the constitution for this but last night it seemed like Nancy Pelosi was going to go there and then all of a sudden it's the plug was pulled and the situation for them and you know I'm a little bit surprised that their messaging hasn't been sort of more directed to that I read the White House counsel's letter excecutive privilege how does that work in impeachment does he really have that and then there's the question of the so-called crime fraud exception you know just because I'm a lawyer doesn't mean that this podcast is now privileged because I am here of the privilege is it covers conversations between lawyers and their clients about legal advice that are intended to be confidential that's what the privilege covers so it's going to be I'm not still by the way I mean talking to people over at the White House the idea that they don't know what's going on behind closed doors they're not getting a read out they don't have White House counsel there it was it was combative but I think it was mostly focused not even mostly focused almost entirely focused on the trump base it wasn't written but the last one autzen effort was totally politicized that the Clinton effort was totally politicized the Nixon effort actually was a legitimate effort and it wound up with very different from the current rules that they're they're operating under and so I think that's what's going on is she knows that the debate is going to move to the rules and under the Nixon and Clinton rules be there so right now yeah there's there's no discussion of giving the president's lawyers any rights to do anything at these hearings or even attend them yeah that's what's driving it it turned out longer and are you saying the house rules the way that they're conducting the impeachment inquiry right now that is not on the table as an option yes not only is that on this is an issue where I think the White House so far is losing an opportunity to actually make their case to the American people on on just the basic SA- fairness getting to question Ken Starr after he testified before the House Judiciary Committee I think for thirty minutes is what the no longer than that I think he was initially given to specialize in impeachment. I like sometimes people call me arguably the nation's leading impeachment among I don't know of any other events in American history represented Governor Rolling in Connecticut and one and then Mark Sanford the governor then if South Carolina had an issue and so I wanted to representing him in counsel's office is not the president's personal lawyer that that they are a lawyer for the White House and for basically views potentially whether attorney client privilege covers activities because there's a split in the circuits about that question and the Supreme Court hasn't decided I know he's a good reminder that the White House privilege at the White House but attorney client privilege and executive because a lot of the news that we saw with the White House counsel's office directly into up against the ropes now saying he he is protected by attorney client privilege work product privilege his impeachment proceedings and then governor Robert Bentley of Alabama Hadn issue and they were looking around all right I've done two so I guess I guess we're stuck with garber represented since the last sentence was about privilege yeah yeah but I you know if you get the last sentence but it wasn't written in a tone that was going to convince anybody and let's look at how they did it and adopt those the the thing I do ask you about is this privileged business because we've got Rudy Giuliani the president's personal lawyer are you interested in learning how great companies grow the download the MARCECA podcast barten- big issue for Rudy Giuliani about whether his activities with and on behalf of the president with an on behalf of these two other dudes that he was working with were those actually we have his own personal wine of his own personal take if you will that matters in the scheme of things great we'll be looking for podcast tells the stories of real world marketers who use technology to generate growth and achieve business and career success from advertising to software as a service data getting brands authentically integrated the content performs better TV advertising typical life span of an article about twenty four to thirty six adverse witness or is this a person's GonNa come in and tell them what he knows and it actually really matters or is he going to be defending the president or does he him and then last year I represented Governor Governor Eric Writings in Missouri in his impeachment so but when you went to law school you're like I wanna do Joe Ross thank you for joining me on the daily DC Impeachment Watch and thanks to our listeners.

Two Aces In A Hole

"I the fantasy z. Focus baseball podcast here your hosts tristan cock roth and eric caravel. It's true welcome to fantasy focus baseball. It's a beautiful monday morning august nineteen th two thousand nineteen he is tristan. I'm eric rica fosters. Our producer and tom carpenters or editorial watchdog on today's fine show and he's hurts his elbow. The homerun rates getting where hand multiple closer situations change. Everyone delivers a combo meal and of course has always mirrored hashbrowns trista. Did you have makamba meal this weekend. I know you did come on. I actually did of most excellent burger and fries. I don't think it was called a combo meal on the menu but it was <hes> quite good quality. Let's pretend let's pretend there was a compromise. Yeah that is other than what. I was gonna say when you got me thinking milli vanilli for a second. Why would i get you thinking that no comment. He said some magic milli vanilli title words a couple of minutes ago. Let's get under the burgers and combo meals what you're talking about but i guess you don't wanna talk about it. We'll do a show. No one talks meal. Even ileana podcast got on. You've mentioned the more times. I don't even know they're the people who faked their music right i. I don't know what you know that that incident with finale took place right across the street from e._s._p._n. Spion here at lake compounds. No that's an actual fact kid outta here day performed in bristol connecticut lay cop outs. Yes the head their lip synching issue that took place right at compounds. Oh my high school thank you tom. I the new notes from now on yeah. I don't mean this in a bad way but that's the most important thing you've ever delivered on the show. I'll take that because it's pretty amazing. That's credible. Yes i learned learn something new today and normally on a podcast trista. I don't think i do but today. I've learned something new and incredible tricky. You didn't know that either. That's incredible news idea. It was that his all and bucolic connecticut anyway. Here's the buzz mind is blown alone now all right so my lead story in the blog today and you know maybe i'm making more out of it than i should because 'cause i don't see it as a headline anywhere on the site but chris sale is visiting dr james andrews for a second opinion on his injured left elbow today and when when pitchers go to visit the good doctor you know they don't like split a. b. l. t. i mean th th the most of the time tommy john surgery as a result right. They split. They get a combo meal very clearly or that. I think this is a big story since chris sale the top three fantasy pitcher and not only would it be lost for the rest of this season but for those denison formats. He won't pitch next year if they do ligament replacement surgery so am i missing something is not a big deal or war. Being realistic like we're gonna find out later today is this his world is changing. Yes i am afraid if we will yeah i. It's it's not good news. It's not good to hear that it is a coat second opinion. I didn't like the fact that that sale himself had the coat of that's way over my head when it was was asked about whether he was concerned about the second opinion so history this is ominous and it's just because of the requires the major surgery we we all fear by by the next year to that's devastating for a guy who is considered a universal top three overall fantasy starting pitcher for easily a half decade at this point. Yeah i mean preeminent strikeout pitcher. I mean he should be. I wouldn't drop them yet. If you have the ability to drop them by man i i title expecting to pitch the rest of the season at at the best anyway i mean there's always a chance down. The stretch but it's got to be asked is the reason this is not a big story as we're being gentle on the defending were defending world champions. We don't wanna point out that this could be a devastating result for that has nothing to do with data. I i think the the the point is that the red sox have not mentioned the words tommy john surgery in any of their releases as a possibility or anything else so like they're just trying to hold off on this bad. News is where most of the time you know but like even then like david robertson at his tommy john surgery we in find out for three days so you know why is that secretive. He had surgeries never going to pitch again for the phillies. I don't get that either but sometimes it's not certain that's the ultimate resolve and david robertson's case it was is that that got mentioned upfront. I i don't know i think we're we're quibbling over the words here but we're gonna find that something pretty quickly to to me what what struck me. Is that the red sox. Exportation isn't a really rough spot at this stage. There is not much left in there. No i agree with that. I mean poor sales going to face the phillies phillies and that could go either way. I don't know i mean native all these in the in the rotation. Now i listed a bunch of i listed strikeout pitchers in my blog today and i'm sure you're i'm going to read that where you know run. Prevention is an issue for some of them and you have to look at the schedule and see where they're pitching but all these guys over the past thirty days are among the top thirty in strikeouts that would be reynaldo lopez of the white sox the nelson lameta shut down the phillies dealer night ryan yarbrough the tampa lefty jacob junius anthony sclafani aaron sanchez. We finally got lit up his third outing and chris basset now. I'm not saying you want these guys but like one of my leagues. I really need strikeouts to the point. I might even activate exact davies because he's more than a reliever although not really doing that just for the volume just to be era strikeouts weight well. It's too starts. That's why yeah just to be clear right white. I mean at the point is if you need strikeouts. These guys are getting them. Don't cut sale yet until you know for sure but we're going to know for sure soon enough all right moving on. There's other stories here. Other injuries corey kluber that was ominous left in the first inning. What was that an oblique specify what the injury was or why would they do that because it's like a hockey player upper body injury. Don't tell anybody what's wrong corey kluber as if he's going to be facing a team this week abdominal tighten abdominal honest with us and tell us what it is people bull now kluber might have a rehab. We meal wasn't feeling so good. Afterwards you understand you get abdominal tightness. After eating bad come and have you ever had a bad combo meal. And what do you think of a combo all these things. Everybody's had a bad combo meal at some point in their life. You've gone to a place and gotten a bad combo meal. At some point. Ed had mcdonald's in literally fifteen years. I actually haven't in just about the same amount of time fifteen years with small children. I'm calling no on that. All my kids of of i don't know i don't like it there too. They want wendy's right now. Actually my son loves never that's where he got attached attached cheeseburger he he got really really into cheeseburgers from eating at wendy's attached to a cheeseburger physically. It's right over here we problem. We're part of his buddies that she's attack all right. Where were we corey kluber in kluber corey kluber actual news news and analysis that he still rosser eighty eight percent of leagues. I mean most fantasy managers in e._s._p._n. Leagues have the patience to deal with a situation like this where a guy misses four months you got her on. May i still rosser eighty percent. Keep them rostered. It might be fine. It might be fun yeah. It might be kind of thing where bumps them back a week because remember he was he was on track to return. I believe it would be this friday. I mean they could've put them on saturday's game. Whatever but it was going to be this week so maybe it's next week but maybe it's september a week. After for this guy was one of the most added pitchers now. I'm telling you to drop them. Dustin may which breaks my heart and a couple of weeks because i really need like six innings like once or twice a week aac he came into the game against atlanta yesterday and gave up a grand slam into the ronaldo kunia replacement for actually not technically replacement but still you know ortega really he. He was the replacement in said game for duval k. me. I can't rostrum anymore. Reliever now. Let's stinks y- ah yeah but the hesitation for me is just who's the five those five for the and the whole idea of julio arias now on suspension attention being worked up as a starter for down the road. Who's the five. I'm not mentioning that guy's name anymore but yes as going to the bullpen where that that's where declined to use them in the playoffs. I guess stripling could be the guy next week but tripling. They've already declared stripping liver stripling reliever by the way they've now hedged on the rich hill talk about going to bullpen. I don't know where they're going. Now anyway. Dump dumped us. The may dump joey votto. He's official in a terrible season. Even appoints league move on don't pick up u._c. Kukuchi goes to its shutout. It was his first win two months. The acuna situation no worries whatsoever. He tried to steal base right up to he's on his way to forty forty. I think he's motivated. Go forty forty and by the way nobody's ever going fifty homer thirty steal christian yelich. She's gonna do that. We're gonna. We're gonna have like eight guys. Fifty home runs tres. Yelich is going to be one of them and he's going s._e._o. Thirty basis. We're not even talking about him. As a top pick next year be trout. Makunyane now in maybe not not order is yellow. Three is bellinger like bets. Wow this numbers are crazy. Numbers are pretty crazy thing is. I still can't believe that there's a very slim chance anyone could get to sixty home runs. They can a year like this with these stats <hes> yeah that's tough but i mean like all started it. Don't get it. I mean fifty use. That's a lot fiftieth loud yeah what else nelson cruz comes back. Today on mocatta comes back this week. Although it might be later in the week the homers three rookies have three home games just in the past week unbelievable. Oh and how about the rookie who's putting coming up the all sorts of rendering x number of games in the beginning of his career aristidies aquino. The note here says when we break the all time home run record. I mean give me say red stardom in right field next season. I'm being serious here kind of give. I'll give you a full time role batting v six hundred days. How many home runs aquino keno hit next week next year next week. Fifty eight hundred eighty one home runs i i i think it's thirty eh let enough lines yeah like if the baseball is identical next year now yeah i ah we rank your nevarez. We're almost going to have to rank aristidas aquino in the top in the retina right around the top fifth. Come on no come aquino's not the prospect. That elver is is. Is that matter anymore yeah. I think what does that matter if he's hitting homers every day and now they're getting a book on. This is not shane spencer either. I think it's peaks and valleys with a guy like this. I think it's a little bit less ethic. Either oliver is i mean probably have like an atom duval to twenty street coming up but i don't know i look at it this way. I think we are both confident in the ability of alvarez that he's going to have a tremendous career going forward. There's little doubt that he's going to have a steep floor. Aquino still has the possibility that when people figure them out and they test them with different bitches breaking stuff that he does the floor just falls out with think that would happen. The other rookies were alvarez and mike. Thank you strip ski. Who yeah who looks like and here's the thing i like a lot of these people who are posting it but please stop posting how many games aimed to college stransky to hit. This many home runs versus. Mike is tricky cars. I was not playing with a happy fun baseball and one of the years like shrimp ski like it. It was all pitchers sixty eight. I just you can't compare even what happened last year to what's happening this year. That's part of the reason. I don't like this is that you know peter lonzo. I don't know what he would have done. Last year would have ended up thirty two home runs. It's gonna fifty two this year. It's ruining the tradition of the game and the numbers because you're right. Nobody's going to sixty eh but still like this is just weird. You can't compare alonzo to darrell strawberry rookie season at all because they're not totally different. Eras totally different different way of using pitching staffs totally different ballparks. Oh yeah pitching friendly ballparks and you know that i love to talk about these historical facts and how players are doing an x number of games and the fact of the matter is nowadays. It's so easy gary sanchez. We mentioned res hoskins. Aaron judge had a point where he was like this now. We've got a keno doing it. It's just you look at the leaderboard. They're all players lately but the way since you mentioned the three homer games we're to two instances away right now on august nineteenth of major league baseball breaking the record for three homer games season two. They need to more three homer games the whole rest of the year to tie the record set in two thousand one and i'll say to you again. You said this in the last show so you probably. I haven't changed her mind but this has to affect the way we rank the way we draft next season. It's just a different game. Now i mean i would take acer too but man. I don't have enough power our in any of my leagues and even leagues winning and the reason is because power has changed and it's a big deal. I still feel all the way that i did the other day. You have to evaluate how you're going to fill this category because if you just take the lazy approach and assume that baseball was the way it was two to three years go even you're going to be left behind but i do still think that the value of the home run relative to league average is still within range of the past couple of years this from our friends at seek you ever feel like ticketing websites excites make getting to the event difficult on purpose it is as if they are so big they can get away with not caring about the customer experience so what if their sights knowing and doesn't doesn't have the events you want.

We didn't even play the music. I know there was there was nary a combo meal but we play the music. I don't think we did. I don't think we did today. We have twelve combo meals to discuss. How fat as i get the homers but the steals i mean we have catchers doing this so i'm just gonna go through the list and some some name you wanna talk about because otherwise it'd be an hour cody bellinger bryce harper yep mark semyon christian yelich ryan braun wants wants soto matt beady. Tom murphy the catcher oscar mercado starling morte who has six now season only el-ajez more with ten shinshu shoot shoot did it and tommy edmund future hall of famer outta combo meal as well. Is there anyone here who would like to discuss. Bring any babies yet another another of dodgers guys that they've squeezed production out of you've never heard of the edmund. I love that i wrote on friday. How ed was in the middle of a big cold streak and then he has a great weekend and thanks for three days making my writing stale <hes>. I had thought that matt carpenter was going to come back and take over that role. I guess not so much. I think we're cotto. Auto is probably the most interesting actionable fantasy option here yet. He has impressed me this year what he has done at times. Tom murphy is definitely impressed. Me there are nine catchers with a really league positive player raider ranking real muto james mccain grondahl vasquez contrary us narvaez garber gary sanchez and wilson rama's and then a big drop drop-off and tom murphy could end up the top ten catcher so could carson kelly roberto perez travis dr no catcher got deep in the last three months just and it really did get deep. It was bad june deep. Now deep makes it sound like you're excited. I am excited because we're pres- my hit twenty five home runs and nobody wants him. You never i liked him. You ripped him every time mentioned him. He's going to twenty. Five home runs travel store. No rejuvinated carson kelly totally legit like a top ten. Guy seattle has two top fifteen catchers. I mean we'll smith. I'm going to rank will smith next year like my number five catcher the dodgers catcher. I'm telling you catcher got deep since may an <hes>. I'll tell you that if they played other positions and we didn't have catcher in this league. None of them would be rostered. Oh i'll agree with that but that's why excitement fight me the word here. I absolutely see your point. You're right there have been a lot of nobody's who've come into the catcher poll and if given value where it's supporting that don't pay a doc. Gosh darn diddly thing for catch here. Don't don't curse on this show tristan. This is a family friendly. Show did lead to italy. I mean you can't even say hey you know the band. That did something wrong. They com- pickle if i said it we don't talk about bad people either all right. Let's move von now. It's the closer carousel carrousel. Well sean doolittle not be worth much in my simply next season doodle. Wow that changed quickly. Yes it. Did you know the league. I'm talking about where i had to keep doing a little because i foolishly cut hooray. Solaar are too early so yeah. He's going to be unusable at seven home runs in his last ten appearances the national society where we can't use them anymore so let's make up an injury and put him on the disabled list so they it did. Who's the closer for washington now. <hes> it's probably a combination between guys. Daniel hudson fernando rodney would be the first two that stand out to me and do you view you them better or worse. Let's say the jose jimenez line or joe him in players dora balls closers in fairness the joe him and his line to me is i don't need to adam. I am if i need saves but you can get some does hudson pass that in no way davis past that so now. They're on the road all week way. I've never seen anything like this. Even i've you even from a chorus pitcher. I have never seen a relief pitcher was split slate home. Road splits. Let's wade davis has and if my computer will comply. I will pull them up or you up for and it's not even beyond a wall here this. I'll tell you this. I'll go before i go. Tavis watson's pitched okay for watching god. This is unbelievable. Wade davis has ten point nine seven era in home games and a two point one one whip on road road zero point six three era one point two six whip so now. Why wouldn't you use way davis this week for all road games you would i considering during the the lack of depth at the closer position. Yes i suppose olbia league where i need to throw away davis in there but i don't feel very good about it. Well <music> out if he hasn't been on the road yet. I actually feel okay about it but like i wouldn't add them in a league. Were without a shore where i can't like bench him right the following week when they're at home right so i'm just saying mark. Lanson looks to be atlanta's closer now. Clearly he's back on track and field comfy there. Do you know who would you rather roster. Astra milan-san or wade davis lanston lanson is not going to have to deal with the week at cars where you just can't trust them one. I don't trust me milan-san at all but no i don't either but you know i've got carlos martinez than a league and he's the he wants to give up a run every game. Yeah i feel a little bit with carlos martinez for i. I do think there will be opportunities. I do for him. Let's take a look at the schedule here because that's what you're looking for opportunities for pitchers. You might not be thinking about monday. Slate slate not a full one e._s._p._n. Plus in the last game of the day has that gallon at home against colorado. That gown looks like a decent stream or this week or at least for the first day. I don't know who the second one's against but he's the guy that got from miami. Colorado does not hit on the road at all. They close well way. Davis closes well but they don't hit it all ready to be scared. You're nobody nobody gonna tell me. That guy was a bad pick. No you wanted to know the second start. It is ad milwaukee well that doesn't sound great no but i like where you're going with the colorado game and in volume chasing which you do have to do a lot more these days i roll the dice davies so you take down over zach davies. Is this week i would yeah. That doesn't help me very much now. It probably does here's to pitch well of late. Wellbeing not the greatest word joe ross one and i think three consecutive but man his walks up it's to every game he's at pittsburgh. They barely scored a run this week this weekend. I mean pittsburgh has their offense has been ugly since the all-star break. I consider that an opportunity especially. If you consider that the pittsburgh ballpark here <hes> gives them a little bit of a bump tommy you handling the baseball blog today. I am not well. Tell whoever is the add a run to pittsburgh. Not scoring enough runs this weekend 'cause i. I wrote before kimbro gap dot homerun craig kimbrel looks terrible. Tristan looks terrible gave no. It's not one game months all right terrible. I we know but there was the injury in between these since he came back. It's been one game but to your point. Kimbrell has a little bit like that was like here starling. He didn't over the fence and he did. Did that was a lot of fun that little league stuff. I really enjoyed that kids enjoyed it it was that was great all right so you rip jazz davies. Joe ross joe rogers yvonne. I'm not this week yeah you know no. There's been gravely yeah and the forecaster loves him and i had to dig into this to figure it out because at minnesota matchup of is scary to me the other one is a home game against texas texas grading as a favourable matchup especially when you're the one hosting them i i think i'd go ross if it's the one day here but i'm going nova confidently as the to start option tuesday on e._s._p._n. You can catch the yankees at oakland could be a playoff preview. They're coming armand vermont and homer bailey. You do not want homer bailey. What else happens on tuesday gio gonzalez and michael walker on e._s._p._n. Plus e._s._p._n. Pluses just awesome mm. Check it out. That's milwaukee at the cardinals counter controls at cincinnati and need cal quantrill pitch well so bieber is pitching and and knowle's so knows at fenway and shane bieber's at the mets against stephen matt's because you won your vampire to ask you which take take beaver and that feeling bias there. I mean don't we like beaver over nolan now. Though in general obviously the schedule looks better. I cleveland yeah. I wanna talk myself into nola for the remainder of the year but i feel pretty good about where bieber is in cleveland. What their schedules looking like the fact they play in that division. I think there there is a path for bieber to continue being affected top ten fantasy starter in definitely at claimed him. He's a two star pitcher this week and a lot of that had to do with i it's another week. I have the win if i lose this week. I'm done sober. I won my lead to. I'll take clayton kershaw <hes> joyce although i could have freddy freeman but my office is pretty stacked. I had like three times as many r._b._i. Nomads at this guy you start thinking about the balance of the roster laughs. There's only how many weeks are left to for the plows humour all right wednesday chris patrick did not look good against the phillies on friday. He's against louis castille in cincinnati. Maybe packs tired and they could shut down whenever they want at this point <hes> and just do whatever it we've got up to one hundred and fifteen innings. I don't think they're going to be breezing past one fifty the projected the pace is one fifty one. They might yeah you're right. They might shut them down soon it is p._s._e. Has the vastly underrated mike fires against the probably overrated j. hap- late night on wednesday. It's been plus as jacob braga's pack and walker bueller. <hes> <hes> bueller top top ten starting pitcher burland pitching that day yu darvish. I'm sorry you you're great. You're not walking anybody. Have that anyone else eight hundred houser at saint louis houses pissed well. Give him credit. He looks good. You're not buying or you are he. He's on that list of streamers. The match of calls and this is a significant ballpark swing. I i could get on board with fair enough and anyone else here of note that we need to discuss g. league. Oh you already rostered. John gray areas jon snow at arizona. We'll we'll mention just because i mean we'll have another show at this point. Thursday is the max scherzer projected return date you activating debating minimum weekly yes in vampire and i said it's imperative. I win you activating nelson cruz. Yes based on the info i'm. I'm a little bit worried about how he how he's gonna hit initially but i will go ahead and take the chancellor activating mocatta. No though i do believe if chicago had a pretty decent hitting let me grab that <hes> chicago's minnesota yes it is. It is a pretty favorable hitting great. I can make the case for them. All all right. That's the first half of our show coming up now some music and hash browns and all right check out with <hes> hash browns are listed here and then. I'll just ignore some of them. Go to my phone and check out some more and surprise me with questions. I've never heard of them. Look before looking can't handle it by now. Oh the day before the s._a._t.'s always so much study do zach rights. Which three of these five do you like like most for the next three seasons a lot of players here but you should be looking at it just like me cranky saroka cottrell marseille whitmire afield and max kepler assume zach is an keeper league here and these guys are all pretty keeper aren't they and there's nobody where immediately really going by ray up. No nobody nobody like that and do you have a good instincts for up. That's number one. I don't i don't have a number one. I gotta gotta say it's cranky. I i understand he's thirty five now thirty six but he's in houston like you see. Can you see cranky like winning twenty next year. I could look for landers doing because of that offense behind him. Giving up forty home runs and win. How many games i guess i could. Let's see him do the lender is really made the case for cranky being a guy to invest in next year rankings in my top greg might be my top ten for fifteen and four with a two eighty one array and he's allowed thirty. One home runs so i i think cranky can not with the strikeout total but i'm i'm gonna probably my top ten stars next year anyway seasons though so look at it this way worried i mean age. It's thirty five so we're looking at thirty six to thirty thirty eight eight thirty six and thirty eight seasons. Only two of them are locked in houston. I i would have a tough time taking sirocco vague ranking. I really would in a keeper. I understand that rocha's twenty one but it's one season hasn't given up any home runs. That doesn't seem sustainable talk to me. I mean i think mike sirocco great and i haven't been my top twenty and to keep her in a dynasty league for starting pitchers and he might be my top twenty anyway for next year but he's not cranky not seen k- rate so sarokin currently at one hundred and forty four innings no chance of getting anywhere near two hundred which means the two hundred might be a question next year and that makes a big difference because i think we lock in grandkids for two hundred two hundred two hundred. I'm taking ranking first year and i'm taking an you're not a cattle morte fan. So why would you say like wouldn't he. Now whip mirror fueled his his age does scare me because the stolen bases while i'm gonna. I'm gonna take w- it out and i'm going to take i hate taking keeping pitchers as though right this is. The kepler is not gonna hit for average basis. This is not an easy question. I think in actually sarokin morte for me. That's that's probably what it would be and then you just have to good starting pitchers. Could you do that again. There's no to me. There isn't a clear number one in this list so the three. I am tempted to put kepler at the top of this list. I worked for me. I've got i've got them in a very narrow margin from one to five here and i feel like it might go kepler grinky. I don't know how cutler he's a guy who we can. We can't hit better than two fifty does not one for six six and stolen bases this year. His runs are all tied where he hits in the order. I like max cutler but in this era a thirty i mean even a forty home run guy. Who does nothing else us can't take him over guys. Still basis or martin plays middle infield so no. I might what are you. The two pictures of martin what i would like to ask about kepler is why are we why have we decided that he's locked into this level of batting average the batted ball distribution the quality of contact that he has the a._g. Has and the contact rate itself are very good numbers what if kepler a guy who could push himself up into the two seventies even just to take a conservative outlook doc. I suppose that is possible. I would not dismiss that i would say to you. The fact that he's hitting lefties world is season is a great sign ups against lefties rory's so there's something about what kepler has done this year that does capture my attention from keeper angle and i agree with you. I could make i argue. He belongs five here but i also have this feeling like my gut says he's one right. This is this is tough. This is one of those ones where it's like. You're gonna cut one guy. You're going to feel terrible that you mentioned murphy told old i look at murrayfield stats and i i agree with exactly where you're going the argument against merrill field but at the same feel like it's crazy to let them go so very deliver mark then all right so what's your three kepler grinky and mirror field. That's totally different to analysts look at same situation uh-huh but i think the the compelling cases can be made for each henry writes. How do you navigate streaky. Pitcher like trevor howard started every week and hope for the best or are there specific vic types of matchups to avoid for him. How do you solve a problem too for pow. Were his last do not look very good. I i always or was this two outings. You'll let me make sure i get. I don't wanna be wrong knows his last adding where he got pounded by washington good bad and like that inning like he not. I don't fell apart and i was going to hit somebody money now. I mean like that was like seven running or something. Wasn't it our eight and pitches to yeah. He's got the lower barometric today. The what would you say the lower bauer matchup lower versus power. I understand by the third time you say okay. Are you worried about ah yeah. <hes> still in your top twenty yeah i don't feel great about that but on the raw ability i think key warrants a spot there and they will treat him like an ace work load. Wow so that's important to me. At this stage power. I'm scared bauer bieber rest of the way a. and dignity bieber. Oh it's probably bieber for both man. We love him fast yeah. No i agree. I i mean. I knew it'd be good mayhem. I'm everywhere but i didn't know he'd be this good. You're saying this like this is a surprise to you and me. I remember sitting right next to you at shane. Bieber spring training kind of like this is the guy there's yeah but i mean we still didn't ranked as a top twenty starting pitcher if we knew he was going to be like this were to route twenty five to thirty like karl hendricks range right i didn't yeah i think he's got this. We didn't think the stuff had the natural swing admissibility that he's shown this year. That's a huge growth. I've got to put him in my top ten. He and grinker top ten starting pitchers next year.

The smartest way to hire next up is john has the value of elite pitcher spike the season due to so many hitters singling offering similar stat lines. I think yes a little bit but how many elite pitchers are there is burley is greedy. Now we would say ver- lander is kershaw probably has gotten back to being elite scherzer's elite <hes> degrom of course yep after that right yeah garrett cole i mean lead is a word. We can't just throw around is your elite is charlie morton elite right right there the the knocks on them our age slash injury concerns. Do we have a right to knock players at the stage. My thought what on this question is does it make ver- lander insurers or definite first round picks next year because if there's very few guys you can count on for months or numbers even with their age and injury concerns. I mean doesn't that make their value better in comparison in context with others yeah. I think that the the guys who deliver are you volume. The true aces certainly now are worth the premium but the problem i have with making that case rankings angle and we just did this on the show on thursday say that i think we feel too good about the top twelve to fifteen hitters which you genuinely take one of them one of these pitchers ahead of one of those. I don't know if i could could either. I don't know i think that there's there's a compelling case to be made but the guts telling us it's not right. I i don't know. I don't think i'm going to rank. A pitcher in my top. Ten is too many hitters like can't take verlinde over devers. I can't do it freddie. Freeman like i can't do that so i feel like next year. My strategy will be no top five starters to in the top fifteen like i'll end up getting like because nobody wants that or morton and nola because knows overall numbers might not look the way people think so. I'll get to top fifteen fifteen pictures to anchor my staff and those to be only pictures. I've taken like the first ten rounds yeah but i don't think i'll reach for the graham or early under you know i just won't it's almost as if we're gonna wanna find and this is not the skill slash age part we want to be in the the group that finds the twenty twenty shane bieber the guy who was i'm always in that group yeah right the s p thirty who's going to deliver u. S. p. five numbers. I think that the goal will be to get to those if you can and i i do that. Well and you do too like we find. These pitchers like i. I was in on lewis kathy you most i was in on bieber. I did well there air. I invested in lance. Lynn real early season when you thought i was nuts are absolutely correct. There and i did think you're nuts and i say a lot of money madison bumgarner and n._f._l. Labor and most people thought i was nuts and you know what he's almost been worth it. He's number twenty well. Actually he is almost top twenty starting pitcher this season on our player raider yeah yeah and he's number twenty. Three and people are complaining about him like he's doing exactly what we wanted. We didn't expect to be a top fifteen star number twenty three. Actually it's better than that because of the closers liam hendriks honest lists so he's twenty two now. He's moving as we speak. I mean guys. I was wrong about two. Let's not sugarcoat dat hat. I got random woman labor because i knew he was going to be a strike out guy and there's another brewers starter who i also got somewhere else and he hasn't been not peralta but the name escapes aged right now. I'll look at a researcher. There's a brewers. There were two hours corden burns core. I invested highly in woodruff and burns year across multiple leagues. Now burns got demoted to the the bullpen and then he couldn't pitch well woofers great lot of strikeouts. I would rather do that and try to pick out the next water rodriguez in the middle rounds and we should probably talk about who that guy is at some point with marta rodrigue now. We don't have enough time to do it on today's show me. That's a blog. Tom just like who who's the next guy that's always twenty twenty s beaver and on september. I like it. The nelson lynette is one of those guys came smith one of those guys although he's already doing it didn't nelson lament. Why don't we make up the nelson lament. I think i think he makes himself in two hundred strikeout guy next year so i think there are critics and they question the pitch which selection itself but lament has really limited now if you count this year and the one before surgery he is greatly exceeded expectations. Yes he looks good. He looked fantastic affiliate on saturday. I have no question marks about him anymore. I don't i'm not gonna twenty next year but when i ranked like like number thirty two don't laugh. That's a lot of strikeouts. I just want to see a make like another. Twelve to fifteen more starts the rest of this year with some really good numbers. I can't imagine any selfish selfish way. Why would want that but you know oh yeah. You got them to a league if he di had bad sim weekend i i mean not just do little giving up three homers to lefties. He's unusable not simply else well bauer. He ain't help bill. You've kluber. I've kluber uh aw rasco. I have casco too. I have entrance c._r._t. And now he's done yeah we should say with the cresco news being that he's going to be a reliever now right the the indian want him back in the league. It's pretty valuable. I can use them as a long man yeah. If i have enough starts swing man for me a couple of years ago why point is like if carlos else carrasco is destined may now you gotta drop them. You've waited months for carlos carrasco but if he's going to be in the bullpen. You can't keep them anymore. Lows and i just in my keeper. League had two teams these trade <hes> with carlos go being the primary returned to the non contender that actually a pretty smart acquisition right now. If you were out of the race you can probably get him. Eh low price and trade. If you're an identity format and of course karadzic was not young but we're gonna finish up in the bullpen and next year. I'm going to rank harass. Go like like my gut tells me eighteen starters and may like twenty six <hes>. I love them. Both you wanna get them early now before your trade deadline in an online past and e._s._p._n. Lease and your league in my not right. I mean you guys are going to want next year. Correct like in the dynasty when i'm dennis loves to keep whatever whatever ours is august thirty first and a lot of leagues like that to do eveline deadline. I tried to make a trade and one of the expert leagues. I'll tell you offline what i i can't get over it. I when guys like i say it on the street. Okay the music stop but we need more questions. Uh-huh yeah just i basically he wrote an email something. I was like no like he said. I have to rob you. You're in first place. I i can't oh wow yes. I'll even show it to you. Read has a question michael. Brantley is on pace for more than one hundred thirty five games for the sixth time in eight seasons needless to say make make the trade. The town is obvious where we rank in twenty twenty <hes>. Do we still view michael brownlee as brittle now. No i think think that coupling this year with last. I think that that's a good answer to the question. I think we we probably don't rank top ten outfielder. I don't think he's quite up to that level especially if you consider some of the individuals in it but i think top twenty i think that's fair. You know he's average enough power to matter right. I mean i i. I think that's all fair stuff yeah next question brian. Are we out of the woods with darvish being massive risk. This is like one of the craziest as you staffs of the season for me. You darvish has not walked nary a hitter in his past four outings and has how many strikeouts is that thirty six strikeouts and no walks in his last four starts and this has been a theme for a while now in fact over the last two months six rox seventy seven strikeouts else. I'd have to be nuts to not recommend yu darvish at this point top twenty star next year. Isn't he back. He's gotta be the way that he has pitching currently and has been for quite quite some time. Yes making the unquestioned top twenty by the way the other one too. He's shown a good amount of durability this year. That is another big plus for him. Working into next season it's night and day what his look in may versus august was night and day is not going deep into games most of the time right but that is monstrous walk rate has gone. We don't care about out how many home runs it gives up anymore. Two thousand six hundred twenty five stars who cares twenty-five starts is the key to me. Even though i mean how many people would have had an over under that was beneath that i definitely had the under. I was not on board that he's fantastic. He could get to thirty with a really any trouble aaron. What are your expectations for otani next season if they just let him hit. Don't you have to rank them as like a top twenty hit or maybe that's yes yes. Why can't you do that tristan because we know he can still based. Why wouldn't oh tiny we six hundred plate appearances end up with thirty thirty five home runs and twenty steals now that seems aggressive but he has only three hundred forty nine p._a. Right now is sixteen home runs and ten steals. You give them a full season. That's like a thirty five home or twenty steel guy who batting two ninety nine he's at about three hundred bats so if we gave him four twenty five five or so that would be twenty twenty two twenty three range probably steal maybe thirty-five aggressive no but i'm trying to determine where he will be in the player raider if we were to a project to a full season bradley. He's stealing bases now. He's not scoring any runs his. I'm just saying well bradley three thirty five that makes a little difference otani hitting ninety nine. He would be in the top hundred on the player raider. I believe with that. I don't know if he'd be in the top fifty fifty though he might pitch next year they probably will use. What do you think happens with that next season. I feel like almost hoping they don't let them pitch anymore and they just let him hit every day behind trout and you bet them clean up or third. I really think he could be a thirty five homer hundred r._b._i. Twenty steel guy who that's three hundred injured and then use them on occasion in relief like to get a key out to close out a game. Just don't let me start. I don't want that to be ruined. That's how how i would use them. I don't think the angels will probably make him a two-way guy. Yeah i think they will too. I like your design for the best use of him. I do think that you could squeeze the most value doing this but i think the angels will go in the direction of making a starter and i'll tell you i have this feeling. He's going to throw at least one hundred innings. They're going to be excellent innings and he's going to be awesome on both sides. I i'm starting to feel like he's a top twenty five player for next year i i won't draft him that way. Uh my guts telling me. I think he's i think at the end of the year. Next year is the top twenty five to a player. I do agree. Well pitching scares me. I mean it was upside. The the problem is the way they're going to use them going to bake in some risk. That's gonna make a lot of people uncomfortable at whereas a._d._p. Is upside. The upside is monstrous. We're done for today. Thank you so much for listening to our little show. We'll continue throughout the rest of the baseball regular season check out our partners colleagues friends and with the fantasy focus football because they're they are daily.

Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin

20:21 min | 11 months ago

Week 2 (Part 2)

"It's time to eat. Four sit down and get ready to consume in abundance of fantasy football knowledge from Ross, Tucker and Joe Dolan mood now. On the fantasy feast eight and podcast. Yeah. Let's eat. Maybe it is the fantasy feast eaten podcasts presented today by Q. L. Dot Com listen. Another. Ball game tonight Bengals browns week to starts to night. So take advantage of their best bets algorithm just like the best bets on the even money podcast and look at all the data they have for week two men that we actually have some data from this season plus they're all over the NBA NHL MLB. If you're into that, you can get the Beck ul APP on your phone or you can head over to Q. L. Dot Com and enter Code Ross Twenty to get twenty percent. Off Your first payment, this is show that so nice we do it. Twice I'm Ross Tucker former NFL offensive lineman five, seven years at Ross. Tuckerman fell on all the different social media platforms please follow. especially if you like press box food, we got a new youtube page youtubecom slash Ross Tucker NFL nothing else. It's cool to see the highlight clips from the various shows that you might not get a chance to listen to or watch rat Ross Tucker pod on twitter and instagram. He's Joe Dolan. As about to say former NFL offensive lineman definitely not he's just Joe Dolan Fun, Guy Underscore Dolan F G underscore Dolan. Faster of all, he oversees at fantasy points, dot com. We do the show twice a week during the season the early show that came out yesterday that's a beast because that's all be one o'clock games, the Thursday night, or then this show is sort of the desert the Cherry on top the late games and Monday night football late games slate starts with Washington at Arizona and I'm telling. You, Joe I know they won and I know they won by ten I. Also, Washington is still not a good football team and not a very good team to have a lot of fancy guys on yet well, first and foremost. I, do want to say this. No I. Am not a former NFL player however have you has your name ever been chanted by the student section at Beaver Stadium. No. So when I covered the Penn State football team for the daily Collegian back when I was in college. I'm six two. So I'm tall. My Buddy. Who is in the student section managed to convince the people around him that I was a three star tight end recruit. And he's like, let's get him to come to Penn State. So he goes Dole inch and I was just covering the team for for for the for the paper. So the student section wants did jam name. At. I love that story. Manage to do. Love always said I was A. Three star tight end recruit. That's what I was but anyway. The reason I'm telling that story now is because you are one hundred percent right the team is not a good fantasy team. There are two guys you could consider here. Antonio gives him was a disappointment in week one you are holding him but you are not starting. To guys to look at number one, you're playing Taryn corn. Okay. I mentioned on yesterday's podcasts that Washington scored twenty seven points but on every drive where they scored a point started in Philly territory so that this offense was not good in week number one you're you're you're holding Gibson. You're starting tearing mccarn somebody to look at though to maybe pick up week number. In deeper league or look at for the future tied for second in tight end targets in week. One was Logan Thomas, the former quarterback. Yeah I noticed that I, mean is he has. Not yet, but he had a targets and somebody's gotta catch the football here. I wouldn't. Think there is a chance as a lower low low low low end version of Darren Waller this year. Dude looking in Arizona I mean first of all Kyle Murray. So Darn Fun to watch run around secondly even I didn't think the Andre Hopkins would be that much of a beast right away for them it for Arizona to be at its best Kyle Murray needs to run more and that's what he did because I think hidden and all that, and there was a great rushing performance Rossi. He averaged under six yards per pass attempt he threw for just two hundred, thirty yards on forty attempts and he has got to move because he is not a pocket passer he. Has. Armed talent. He has a big time arm, but he is so small they have got to get him on the move and that's exactly what they did. I enjoyed seeing that you're absolutely playing Murray. You're absolutely playing the Andre Hopkins Oh by the way they have got him on the move to because this Washington Defensive Front will feast and you are playing Kenyan drake but there's really only three guys you could consider applying for him at this stage Christian Kirk one catch for zero yards on five targets. He has been a major disappointment the last two years who. Next up we got the chiefs and the chargers pretty disappointed in the chargers offensively in Cincinnati Joe I just don't think tyler. tyrod Taylor's very good and that that's the that's the biggest problem here when you're when you're talking about that and it really hurt. It really hurt the Keenan Allen who had four catches on eight targets he tried to get Mike? Williams killed Mike. Williams is coming into this game with an injured shoulder tyrod thrown hospital balls. The entire game also network has one tall. Meanwhile Anthony Lynn comes out and says it after the game, we don't win this game without Josh L. The rookie running back. So I think they are going to have a back you'll rotation but if you have Keenan Allen Hunter Henry and neck lower. The one thing you have to keep in mind is they're going to have to throw the football this week they're playing Kansas City. They're not playing the rookie quarterback and Joe Borough playing Patrick, mahomes they're going to have to throw it a little bit more. So I'd put Keenan Allen in your lineup don't panic yet or Austin Eker it's probably not the best week to use Joshua. Kelly. Maybe you use tyrod Taylor for DFS I don't think he's very good but I think they're they're not going to have a choice, but that's all this week. On the other side, the chiefs anything stand out to you. I mean obviously Houston playing to safety. Look a lot of teams might do that Andy Reid, showing the patients to just run them out of it and just keep giving the ball do my first round pick and the Feast Redraft League Clyde Edward Allaire. He's awesome. Rb One, Patrick Mahomes. qb One. Travis Kelsey Iwon tyreek Hill wide receiver one mean. Those four guys are obviously consideration. I on the lower end maybe if Kansas City wins this gain relatively easily maybe consider plugging in Daryl Williams. Anybody else I think maybe you can consider Sammy Watkins but I think a lot of people were disappointed with the usage of of Miekel. In Week one at one target just not somebody you could consider using at this stage Kansas City's a great fantasy team, but they're also an easy fantasy team because most of the guys that you have on your roster from Kansas City or belong in your lineup y'all I was Gonna ask you your thoughts on Sammy Watkins the markets Robinson and somebody's deeper leagues will Robinson had a couple of drops including the one in the end zone which I thought was a good play by the defender. Still I'm wondering if Hardman gets a little bit more work this week but if I'm playing a secondary receive from Kansas City, it is Sammy Watkins this week. Let's move along then to Baltimore and Houston. I. Thought Cleveland might be able to slow down Baltimore a little bit all of training camp prepping for Lamar Jackson and what they do joe it didn't happen. It didn't happen at all Baltimore could have scored even more points Patrick Ricard fumbled down near the goal line I mean and I thought Cleveland had a pretty good D. Line Lamar and the Raven still carved them up. So the browns have the excuse me the ravens had three main players. You consider you play Lamar Jackson every week you play mark. Andrews. Every Week and you play Hollywood Brown who was awesome. We want you play those three guys every week I think we're going to have to start looking at the backfield a little bit. Mark Ingram has ten carries and does nothing with them however. People were like Oh is this J. Dobbins Backfield I'm not sure and the reason I'm not sure is they have they this was not a competitive game against Cleveland, Mark Ingram could be getting veteran a veteran time off because they're like, well, hell we're blowing the team out get jk in there I wanna see what he can do. I still consider both Ingram and Jacob Dobbins. Flex plays at the running back position until we get a little bit more clarity, it would this team I think this game against Houston is going to be more competitive than Cleveland. Gave them last week but Ingram Dobbins I. still think we need a little bit more time with this before we decide which of these guys is truly going to be the league. that. Touchdown catch by mark and he's really good. He's really good army. Pick if you made that pack I mean he's just it. He's the guy. Lamar Jackson looks for in the Red Zone. On the other side Houston Texans I. I. Must Admit, Joe, I thought David Johnson looked light years better than he did lash I. Don't know he's back to Arizona David Johnson but he got the piano office back and he looked pretty good I. I agree. he had over one hundred yards from scrimmage and and it was an efficient hundred yards from scrimmage because he did not only fourteen touches. So you do that on fourteen touches you gotta be impressed with what he did on. He's got to be in your lineup as an rb to to Shawn Watson Look it's a tough match-up, but you gotta play him I mean you drafted him he is at home so you have to play the Shawn Watson I'm in on Willfuller. Ten catch, ten targets, eight receptions, but it is a much tougher matchup that he had last week against Kansas City. I'm probably ignoring the rest of the wide receivers here though really disappointing debut from Brandin cooks I know he was dinged up to for twenty on five targets Randall Cobb just two for twenty three. I was disappointed in the rest of those receivers. This is really a three-man fantasy team right now and there are three guys you'd need probably need to play every week to Shawn, Watson David Johnson and will fuller David Johnson especially with Duke Johnson dinged up with an ankle injury.

Joe Is Cam Newton a League winner. Potentially and I mean, the fact of the matter is he carried the ball fifteen times he scored two touchdowns and they got nothing. I mean they're going to have to run the ball and Cam is going to have to be the capitalist like those receivers are just terrible. It's they need somebody to step up on the outside eventually but now I mean. The only guy I even feel halfway decent about lying for the Patriots as Cam Newton up probably James White to. Four man back you'll rotation with Sony Michelle. Birkhead. Jj Taylor N. white white got dinged up. The Harry had five catches for thirty nine yards on six targets. So he's kind of maybe an end of bench guy. And of course, of course, you have jolyon element there as well. So he he's a wide receiver three but man, this is a nasty ugly fantasy team. I think the only real main beneficiary is Cam Newton and his rushing ability. It was clear that Josh mcdaniels was having a lot of fun calling design runs for Cam. Newton. So, let's see what happens with this team going forward but I think Sony Michelle and James Wider like rb threes I think edmonds a wide receiver three and Cam Newton is a guy. You could consider starting every week with seventy five rushing yards in week number one. On. The other side Seattle Joe Ross near Russell Wilson just play the game of his life I. Mean it happened I mean is it? Is it official? Are they? Are they letting US cook? So I thought this was really fascinating. because. Seattle Seattle's winning this game from the get go. Seattle was up fourteen to three by the end of the first quarter. So normally when you see that you're like, okay, this is p Carol. He's going to not go into a shell, but they're going to run the ball and play conservative the rest of the way. They had twenty rush attempts as a team. Three of them by Russell Wilson. I went back and looked. In every single game. that. The seahawks have won by double digits in Carols Eleven seasons as the head coach there. This was the fewest rush attempts. They had a game twenty. They've never had fewer so they truly did let Ross Cook. Now maybe that was matchup Atlanta is abominable through the Air New England is better decay. Metcalf has a harbour matchup. He's GonNa get Stefan, digs a stefan. Gilmore. This week. But just keep that in mind in a game the seahawks won by thirteen points Chris Carson had only six carries he played under fifty percents of the snaps and Russell Wilson threw thirty five matches. So that was you wish rush attempts by the seahawks in a double digit or excuse me in a to score win. So nine points or greater, the fewest rush attempts the seahawks have had in nine point or greater win in the entire Carr-. While that's interesting. And yet Chris Carving out the to receiving touchdown. Yes he did. So if you were to tell me going into this game, Chris Carson's going to have six carries I'm like a word trouble. Of course, he he sets records he tied a career high in catches. He set a career high in receiving yards and obviously set a career high in receiving touchdowns he came into this game with. Only three career receiving touchdowns, left it with five. So I don't know how much you can expect that but I did point out in one of my columns that fantasy points last week that Joe Fan, who's covered the seahawks a number of years of their for NBC sports northwest did anticipate a more even split in this backfield carson played only forty five percent of the snaps in week one. Okay, that's a good nugget Monday night football. It's the new. Orleans Saints at the Las Vegas readers the saints going to be without Michael Thomas Joe. Ankle sprain who do I feel good about playing here for the Saints Jared Cook by the way, I think be facto number one receiver but it is high time you look at your league and see what tastes some hills eligibility is and I mean I can't believe I'm saying this tastes I'm hill the first target of the season for the New Orleans, saints he's GonNa play more with no Michael Thomas I, think you a manual sanders even though he played viewer snacks and ran fewer routes than trae Kwan Smith. So Trey quant Smith somebody to look he's never really put it together but somebody to look out on the lower end I really think this is Alvin Kamera's team right now though. Breeze did not a great to me in week one. Against the Raiders Young Secondary, maybe you give them a shot. Obviously, the stadium in Vegas is into I believe it's indoor. Veterans One of those retractable situations. Maybe. You consider him this week but I don't love him. A any. I mean not a great info for drew brees last week. So this offense for me, it's Kinda of. Cook, and that's about it right now, Emmanuel Sanders I'd probably throw in a lineup right now. Maybe look at Trae Kwan Smith in a lower level league, but they don't have great depth that receiver I think tastes them ill is gonNA play not looking great for drew brees. So, if he's a running back or he's a tight, you're putting taste and Helen. Thank you. I think he's somebody who can be considered as tight end. I think he'll get past attempts I. think he'll get targets. I, think he'll get Russia attempts I. Think New Orleans, I think Sean. Payton is going to game plan for the fact that he doesn't have Michael Thomas and think that's going to involve tastes hill. While, very interesting, the raiders on the other side I thought it was impressive performance by their line and they're gonNA get Carolina's defense. In President Boris was where the offensive line and they moved the ball Hallelujah. Josh Shaka's got six targets the three touchdowns great. The six targets are better because the six targets are more sustainable. Josh Jacobs a hammer rb one right. Now, all we've been asking for him to get more involved in the passing game. Get Get Josh, take all of your lineups down waller led the team with eight targets of the saints up touchdown OJ. Howard last week Darren Waller's in your lineups. Henry rugs is probably a wide receiver three at this stage I was impressed with him. He did leave the game for a little bit of time. Now, I was disappointed in Brian Edwards only gaining one target and I think Derek Carr a stream -able quarterback this week. The new. Orleans. Defense is pretty good. The guys I feel really good about in this game are Jacobs Waller everybody else you should make a decision on. Got It? Yeah. I mean I thought that was a great signed for Josh Wonderful. Beast wonderful wonderful sign for for Josh. Jacobs. I mean I to maybe five most talented backs in the entire the entire league. I think one of the five most talented fantasy analyst Joe Serve. Dolan. Joseph? Dolan. I love that story and all the students looked at you and yeah, let's three-star. Maybe to star, they might have thought I can't believe this guy's three star but A.

Silva he his dad to the cutest little girl and the CO founder of established the run DOT com. The one and only Evan Silva our buddy. Evan always great to talk with you. Thanks for coming on the show. Hey thanks for having me guys. I think this is my first time back since we went our separate ways. But you guys crush. It had awesome first year I listened a lot and you guys pumped out great information and you know. Thank you as as a loyal listener because it made me smarter every week. Wow I praise that will get you everywhere. Thank you Evan. Appreciate that well. I'm going to return the favor right now because you were and this is like objective. This is not subjective objectively. The number one ranked mock draft her in the world last year. And you've been among the top five. I believe over the last five years so I guess. Let's start with that Evan. Before we get into specific thoughts that you have for this year What do you attribute the success to and I guess why do you do it like why do you put so much time into it and do it just for fun to do or just to be a part of the contest Take us through your process in reasoning. Yeah why always wanted to be good and I was terrible for a while and I would do. I would try different methods like I would do my own. You know top top fifty board and then I would try to do you know. What do I think that team should do? You know and I would try a bunch of different ways I would The beat writers always do their own mock drafts. And I'd try to look at you know what what was the beat writers projecting and you know that never worked in you know so finally I was like I really do. Want to get good at this and You know we started on the fantasy feast during the offseason to have some level of interesting content. We started bringing on our shows guys. That had shown they were good that they were accurate. Mock drafters and you know. We had several of them on and we talk about what their processes were in. So I tried to pick their brains and just from being rota world for a really long time because the foundation of that website. Is there player? News blurbs you know what you're doing is you're what national am beat. Writers are reporting in so I try to cultivate that and I tried to figure out you know why. Why was Bob? Mcginn so good at Predicting predicting the draft like he would year-over-year be really good. Why was Mike mayock better than everyone at that? And then now General Jeremiah has really emerged as the best mainstream mock. Drafter studying their mock drafts and just kind of using all all those different information sources to better myself and and finally I was able to get myself to a a position where I became decent. No again Boeing's actually good at predicting the draft. That's one of the things that makes the draft show. Great I mean I I compared almost to like the NC double A. Tournament in terms of predictability and surprise factor and. I think that that's going to be even accentuated this year because there really aren't that many a drought pre-draft rumors coming out there aren't that many pre-draft reports coming out because you know it's cousy executives are not out on the produce trail and not talking as much. They were no. Nfl owners meetings and the big talk really. This year at the combine was not necessarily about the players as much as it was about the CBA. So I think that this year in terms of predicting the You know mocking the draft is going to be the most difficult that you know of that. I've ever seen and I think there's GonNa be a lot of surprises and I think that people that are saying like. Oh that will never happen like they have no idea what they're talking about and I think my mock draft is GonNa be terrible this year and then I think it's fascinating that you're talking about. There's not a whole lot of inside information coming out but I do. WanNa bring up something today and this relates to your mock draft on establish the run DOT com. It's up and Evan. I believe everybody can read that right now. Yeah Yeah Yeah okay. Good so I want to bring this up. Because we're going to talk about a specific player. I'm reading tweets here from the Miami media. This one's just from Berry Jackson. I'm not calling him out or anything like that. I'm just saying what he reported and Berry Jackson said this today. We're talking on Thursday. The ninth of April spoke to two more. Nfl personnel people who have been in the League along time and he points out with no horse in this race so not dolphins related people but he covers the dolphins for the Miami Herald. And he says he. These people insist to quote in top. Ten is simply too risky. Whether fins believe it or not the notion of giving valuable assets to trade for to a seems increasingly a logical. And I'M NOT GONNA call you out for what you've done in your mock draft. But I've seen that next from Berry Jackson who writes for the Miami Herald but I've seen multiple. Dolphins beat writers over the past week plus kind of start to in a way. Soften the blow for Dolphin fans who have wanted to all throughout this process and I think that's notable because in your mock draft Joe Borough go number one overall. I don't think that's controversial. It all at this point and then you have Washington taking chase young too but at number three that originally the Detroit lions spot you up the chargers trading up to draft to a and I think that's fascinating because it's it's looking more and more likely that the dolphins are turning their heads away from two and I think it's really interesting that you decided the chargers the team that are GonNa make the splash move and trade up forum. What was your rationale behind that? Yes I can tell you from experience that. Berry Jackson is one of the absolute best beat reporters. He's almost like he's one of the absolute best. And you know he goes really really deep any research every angle and you know. He was always wanted to the his column He. He did it so perfectly for us at Rota world because he would just have like nuggets you know throughout his column and you know he didn't necessarily right no big articles with big long paragraphs you just he gives you like one hitters and And he's he's got a great track record of accuracy so I absolutely do not dismiss anything that he says also from the same paper Armando Salgueiro has a little bit more quietly and a little bit less directly although he's gotten pretty direct recently He's been saying that. The dolphins like Justin Herbert better than to For a long time For maybe even months and also Mike Lombardi. Who I know has been on. Ross's show Before the Ross Tiger football podcast He has a stated that he thinks that Herbert might go ahead of two. So look you know kind of Crazy Times that we're living in the actual world like you know teams are unable to get the medical access to to that they normally would. There have been reports that have come out about his injury history and his you know people who have got Medical report on him from the combine. The results weren't weren't great. So could we see a slide down the board from two? I mean that's something that we've we've got to start considering to be a possibility. This mock draft. I wrote like really a week ago. But I'm willing to absolutely change. The craft in order to account for new information and I don't think that this is minced misinformation. It makes a lot of sense logically that teams when they can't examine a A player at their own team facility with their own doctors would have in. Its at such a critical position They might have some pause when when they're when they're when they're on the board and they're considering to of because of his injury issues yeah. I think that's well said Evan. One last question at least from my perspective before we get into some of the rookie prospects you like and don't would be. Do you feel like the mock draft. Exercise helps you per either fantasy football or perhaps betting on the totals for these guys you can bet if the guys at twelve and a half if he goes over under does it serve other purposes or is it just about the mock draft itself when you're a mock draft. You have to examine a lot of different factors have to examine team needs. You have to examine the history of that team or that. Jammer that terrent front office. And what have they done to that point? In the off season you know what has been their off-season strategy who else is left on the board Do they have a history of trading upper trading down so yeah I mean I think that you know it can be a very instructive exercise. Just from the writer himself or herself to do to conduct a mock draft. Because it's just it requires you to put in. Some effort is put together a decent looking mock draft with decent explanations behind each pick and each moves and then I think that that also can be instructive for the reader. Absolutely so I mean mock drafts. Kind of get like you know. They're kind of laughed off. And They Kinda don't get you know The best name but I think that you know a good mock draft absolutely Has its utility and shoot especially in a time like usually leading up to the draft. You know there's not a ton of great information out. The free agency has really ground to a hall and it's just it. It gives us something to talk about. Evansville let's get into some of the specific positions by the way. Just go to establish the Ron and check out Evans. Mock draft if you WANNA go through. We're not going to go through every pick as a matter of fact this fantasy. Podcast that we're going to focus on the skill position Guys Evan. In addition to the quarterbacks which you said you know we're getting a little bit of information that might make you change that but everybody knows here that the the cream of the crop of this draft is the wide receiver position and going through your mock draft. You have seven of them going in the first round you only a first round. Mock you at seven wide receivers going in the first round and interestingly enough and we've been hearing more and more that this could happen you actually have henry rugs as the first wide receiver off the board and to me. It makes sense. I know his production wasn't where you'd like to see it in college. But you're talking about a team in Alabama. That ran the ball very well. He had to compete for targets with Jerry. Judy and Devante Smith and a bunch of other guys. There were Alabama's just completely loaded with skill position talent. But you have rugs going off the board and don't want to compare this too much to Darius Hayward Bay ten years ago but the raiders are the ones who pull the trigger. They go get their speed guy. What did you see from Henry Rugs when you watched him? And what makes him really appealing fantasy asset especially ends up with somebody like Jon? Gruden and the raiders and from a volume standpoint. You know. He didn't get nearly as many targets in receptions as Jerry. Judy did And I'd love Jerry Judy but Henry Rugs I think at the very worst is going to be a guy who changes coverage because of his speed and I also thought they one thing that stood out about him was how physical he was. He's not like a finesse. Deep threat sort of player. He's absolutely willing to go in there and mix it up. I think pro football focus actually has him as their number one overall wide receiver and we started to hear a lot of kind of buzz about Henry. Rugs being number one Drafted wide receiver in this class last week so mocking him. There was kind of a reactionary. Move to that but I think it makes a lot of sense when you look at the raiders They don't have that right now. Tyrone Williams I think is a solid number two you know outside the numbers receiver. Darren Waller had an excellent season as the low average depth of target tight end. He really wasn't making a lot of his plays downfield but he fit perfectly with their car. In Hunter. Renfro had really underrated season as a slot. Receiver what they don't have is that you know second third level player that not only tilt coverage what makes plays downfield and Derek Carr has been a guy that has been accurate when he has gone downfield but he has not gone down. Co very much Not at a high frequency and I think you have to add that element into the raiders. Offense see if Derek Carr can do something with it because I'm not sure that you get the full evaluation of Derek Carr and at some point the rain at some point very soon the raiders are going to have to make a decision on Derek Carr And I think you have to see him with that Henry Rugs type of player before you can. You can make that decision with full like with with the full at like being able to make that decision with all the information available. Evan before I ask you about other receivers that stood out to you either positively or negatively. I know Joe feels very strongly about what under you should be wearing while you're at home during this quarantine. Go ahead Joe Ross. I haven't put on a pair of normal pants in a couple of weeks. I probably should do that. I should try to get a to get into some sort of routine I've been sleeping in and honestly one of the big reasons I've been sleeping in Ross is because I'm damn comfortable look. We've spent a lot of time at home. Hopefully we're not spending too much time at home in the in the near future. Things are changing each and every day but all we know is the current situation. We're in and we're sitting at home with nothing to do and that means a comfortable wardrobe of lounge wearing underwear now. They've been my best friend.

I know you've done a lot of work on the receivers and so I'll just ask you one guy that you really like perhaps more than others do and maybe the opposite one guy that you're not as high on as other people appear to be at receiver. I think a brandon I am. I saying that right. Joe You are indeed having. It's Kinda where you put the accent you I or I you. I think it's I S. It sounds like that you know that sound that. Dufy makes are you. Yeah you know when he gets when goofy gets launched in a in a cartoon. Anyway I'M GONNA I should probably myself after that I thought that he you know and someone a presented. This comparison to me. He just remind me a lot of Chris Godwin and he's built exactly like Chris Godwin. I think he moves a lot like Chris. God when he is so freaking good after the catch you know. Caught everything when I watched him. Here's a guy that came from Juku. Originally I believe and then he was kind of overshadowed by Nikiel Harry at Arizona State and then he exploded in his final season. One thing that we used to talk about a lot on the fantasy feast was wide receivers and really any skill position players. That had a lot of success. on special teams as kickoff in. Punt. Returners which you did because it was indicative of a player that was really good with the ball in his hands. You know t y Hilton. Odell Beckham even Dez. Bryant was an incredible return man at Oklahoma state. You know the list goes on and on an ICU. Was Incredible Return Man at Arizona State. He's got a bigger radius than you would think for a guy who's a quote unquote only six foot two. Oh Five. Because he's got a almost thirty four inch arms which is like left tackle links and I think that that shows up when you watch him play as well The thing is that he just had this core muscle surgery. And so I think that that you know just any kind of medical alarm right now worries me about mocking him in the first draft from in the first round but so I probably will will pull him out of next time but man. I'll tell you what when I watched him. I was like wow. This guy needs to be considered right on the first and second round fringe. Adam Kaplan and Daniel Jeremiah have talked about how he had a chance to go in the first round But I I do think that this core muscle surgery that he just had. I don't even know the extent of it but I think it's just it's just enough to keep him out of the first time especially at such deep position but I I really really like is game. Oh and then A guy that I might be lower on then consensus I think the more that I've watched t higgins and Jalen Rieger. I think that they both of those guys are of difficult to evaluate jalen. Rieger kind of a smaller burner. Who did not test as well is. He sort of like was expected and forecasted to do. He's a great athlete. But in terms of straight-line speed he wasn't quite as fast as expected And then a t higgins who also was not as fast as expected at his pro day when you watch him play. I mean he's a big long vertical threat. Sort of like a poor man's Martavis Bryant or like a discount Martavis Bryant and and he has become a a difficult guy to evaluate because I know that he was really highly thought of in College But I think he might end up being a second or third round. Pick as opposed to a first rounder. That he was maybe kind of considered to be a when all this started. And then we can talk about the reasons for this for about one hundred hours and too many hours of already been spent on it. But you have no running backs going in the first round of your mock draft up established the RON DOT com. However we know how important the running back -sition is for fantasy football and for sure you spent a lot of time watching an analyzing them who are some of your favorites in the class Maybe one high end guy one sleeper. And maybe one guy that you don't think is as good as maybe the consensus things. Yeah well first of all. I think it's a really good actual draft you know. I think it's a really good Tommy class. I think that it's an incredible obviously wide receiver class. You know. I think that six wide receiver wide receivers are probably going to go into. I found at least five. Maybe six maybe even seven You know so. I think that it's it's drift or really really good draft and so. That is one reason that I don't have any running backs in the first round of my mock draft and the two guys that are inconsideration for that would be Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin But I think that we as like fantasy analysts and I think the matches up really well analytically. I think we're a little bit higher than the. Nfl is on Johnson. Taylor right now and I think that we're a little lower than the. Nfl is on the Andrea swift and Andrea Swift. You know he might be a guy who I mean I can see him being a guy that comes in and just really tears it up in fantasy because he is a really good receiving back and he's good enough as just like a traditional ball carrier and that's what he did at Georgia. He was like a really a a pro style running back You know he was a guy that outperformed the competition. Yeah he was he was just extremely competitive backfield's at Georgia and he was always you know like at the at the top of of that backfield in terms of efficiency and you add in that that passing game value and men and if you add in some some pretty good draft capital which assures that he's GonNa get a lot of opportunity early on. He's a guy who could come and absolutely Fantasy and really run laps around Jonathan Taylor who is a guy that looks great from a workhorse projection. But his passing game value has big big question marks and if he can't catch the ball I mean I read on established around. We did a podcast. The other day was Mike Renner of PF college and he noted that Jonathan Taylor had eight drops among fifty Among fifty targets during his career at Wisconsin. That's still a small sample size but man. That's that's not a good number eight drops on fifty targets in your career. He only had one season where he was even halfway. Productive from receiving standpoint of but de'andre swift is a guy that I think that You know I'm really really excited about entering the league lower end guy that I like is key Sean Vaughan out of Vanderbilt He looked like a guy to me. That to break tackles who was big enough in that to fifteen range and that could really excel in the passing game and was highly highly efficient right around six and a half yards per. Carry running against SCC defenses and running behind the vanderbilt offense of line so I think that a lot lot of things to like about Sean Vaughan. One guy that I kind of went back and forth on was JK DOBBINS. Because he's a guy that really made his mark from getting being able to handle tone volume and excelling with it and he was good enough. I think as a receiver I think. He had seventy one receptions in three seasons at Ohio state but he was not a guy like made plays from the slot or outside or anything like that. And I think the Andrea Swift can be a guy like that and then if you look at. Jk Dobbins how he's built and his game as sort of like an interior grinder. He's only two hundred nine pounds and he did not test before the draft so he was a guy that I kinda keep going back and forth on and I'm probably just GONNA let wherever. He lands his landing spot dictate how much. I liked him from fantasy and real life going forward standpoint evidence always good to have you on the show. It's always good to hear your voice. I feel like we could do like a five hour. Show about your thoughts on these prospects. I could ask you about tight end. But it doesn't seem like a very tight end you fell in love with is there. No I mean I there guys that I try to I want to. I WANT TO LIKE ITEM. Trautmann from Dayton and the Albert guy from Missouri. I mean Joe. Can you pronounce his last name? A coup Buna. Are you serious? I've been working on that. A coup dude. He's like that guy goes in the in the Vitali category for me were big by ties. Big that tight end is Albert. Oh Alberto is that dude's near well.

Joe Thank you for coming on it is an absolute pleasure, and as long as I followed you raw and Joe I know it doesn't matter what time it is. There's so much energy and passion on this show here today and I'm excited that your first episode on Youtube I think your listeners are going to get a tree. So before giving it in the year background Dan because it's really interesting for a fantasy football player. Joey might have touched on this last week. Is it fair to say. That dynasty and baseball are basically the opposite so beach other like best ball is the least involved you do the draft you're done. It's over and you see what happens during the season dynasty is like the exact opposite truly is like a year round endeavor. Is that fair Joe Yeah, and even even if your team stinks right so because if your team stinks dynasty that gives you all the more incentive. To, keep grinding, and you know sometimes it just redraft league. You start to lock out the teams who aren't GonNa make the playoffs from doing transactions, and you know to prevent collusion and all that stuff, and to make sure the teams to have a chance to win. Really are the teams that are pursuing. The players, the right players on the waiver wire and stuff like that in dynasty. If you're sitting there at and eight, and you know you're not going anywhere, will now it's time to unload you're you're better? Players? Go get more draft picks. Go get younger players to trade them to the wind now team, so it is the opposite in that man. If your team stinks, you might even be more active in the dynasty league than you would be. If you you're team was six. Or seven Brie and look into win a championship. Is that kind of how look at it and is that why you're such a dynasty? Love her. Do you feel like it's more? Similar to like real football in the sense that. Every years not a new year like you gotTa have some carryover from the year before with your roster and you really building something. I love building whether it was when I was a football coach, or you know owning a semi pro football team. I love that roster management building a roster. Only one think about being to eight Joe, so you know hopefully I never have to grind like that, but it is a grinded as a management You have to be organized. You gotta stay on top. Top of things and it's year round, and that's why I enjoy about it, too. You know here. We are during a pandemic, I still have football. You know yes, the Best Balls Fund I do my share best balls, but I love mansion that dynasty team in the offseason keep a knowledgeable keep ahead of the game and I think it gives me an advantage. So you should by the way if you like dynasty football, I know a lot of you. Do you absolutely need to follow them on twitter at dynasty, theory, F F and listen to or watch? Dan Show. It's on Monday nights right then. Monday nights nine o'clock were live on Youtube, and then we're on every online platform regular podcast. We released it the next day on Tuesday. Yeah, so you're absolutely should check that out. He also is a gigantic cowboys fan. I'm loving the dichotomy right now because we have on the one hand. Joe Dolan really is affiliate Guy Likes Phillies sports loves Roy Halladay and the flyers and the eagles. Hand. You Got Dan. Who's got this Dak Prescott fat had behind him. He's in his suite cowboys chair. He's got a cowboy shirt on they you have me who actually played for the cowboys, but grew up eagles fan, and is the Eagles TV analyst, so we've got like a straight battle here going right now. Yeah I mean NFC east across the board I just know giants representation here I don't think that Ross where you ever with the giants I know you've played for thirty eight teams, but worry ever with the giants now the giants of the NFC East Team I have no, no connection to. Not to. Or whatever it's interesting though Joe, I met Dan. This is important. For some. I met Dan. Was One of my other businesses. Go big recruiting for high school athletes because they couldn't me if I'm wrong. You were the recruiting coordinator I. Know You still work at Lackawanna? College, but you're the recruiting coordinator. Right? Yeah, as part of recruiting and coaching the running backs at the time I, think it was two, thousand, six, two, thousand, seven, Ross, and You know I think for your listeners that just shows a pays to be good people and follow your passion. 'cause it connected me what you and here we are many years later. Yeah now dynasty theory is part of the Ross Tucker podcast network, but so Dan has a background in recruiting as a coach as a player and Lackawanna I duNno, Joe. How familiar you are jost from up in the eastern area. Right Joe Yeah I'm from the Valley and. Just a just to throw out there. My brother-in-law is a coach. The offensive coordinator at Moravian College in Bethlehem so he my brother-in-law coach the tight ends for a year or two at Villanova, He was then the he was then the quarterbacks coach up at up at. Mercy, Hurston Eerie and now he's He's coaching. He's the offense coordinator. Moravian College so a lot of Pennsylvania connect. He was actually Ross. a quarterback at Lasalle College, high school and in the Philadelphia area, so he so we. We have Pennsylvania. Football got on lockdown here and then Lackawanna Joe I. Don't know how familiar you are the listeners, but they have like twenty guys. Go D one every year. Not White played there the former number seven overall pick in the draft for the bears. I don't who else went there Dan that people might know. Brother Xeres a linebacker for the chargers right now. He's competing for a starting job with them. Mark Lewinsky's the right guard for the colts. He just signed a new contract. He's doing excellent there in Indianapolis. We got prospects all over the place. Right now we got Dijon Warren. WHO's got scholarship offers from about twenty five different institutions probably selling them short. They are Alabama Georgia. Penn state we have a bunch of kids at Penn state right now and we been high, and it's a great experience. When I started there, Ross. I really learned what work ethic in film study is I. Can't tell you how much film I did. Get the opportunity to watch. Watch in Kinda like your boy. Greg cosell analytics, guys, fantasy football, and there's film guys I love watching the NFL film and I learned a lot like want college to help me do so well. That was going to be my question right, so you're really a dynasty fantasy football. You've been emailing me last couple of years about how much you love it. You listen to the fantasy fees and everything like that. So most of your decision making is it fair to say comes from Your coaching background, and actually studying in watching the players. So then like how much time do you spend watching the rookies? So you know who to draft? Yeah it rookies has been like the next evolution for me. You know it starts on football Sunday I've got three TV's on I got the ipad on a separate screen. I picked the players I wanNA watch each week during the week I'll watch the subscription to the NFL access I'm watching you know things. I might have missed. There are certain players I wanna see, and then it's trying to keep up with college football, and then when the season's over you know absorbent, as much college football as I, can't it to catch up with the rookie class, and it's you know, believe believing in my eyes and a combination out of much knowledge. Knowledge as I could soak in listening into the analytics, guys follow in your show Ross with an incredible amount of great guests. You have you've always had your thumb on. I think a lot of the best talent in the industry The word Joe's doing over there at fantasy points with the Dream Team of staff. He's put together there and I'm not blowing smoke with that, but that's part of my strategy. I have no shame in my game. When we're on the dynasty theory podcast we, we give credit where it's due. You know because we see how hard people in the industry grinding so I. Try to combine my film study with. A select group analysts that I follow religiously and just Kinda Combine Nuno, the analytics with the film study, and you learn the market value and apply at the dynasty football all right so I think most listeners know what dynasty football is you know I think. I mean guessing it's fair to say Jomon. Ask You about this is fair to say. Everybody knows redraft is. What percentage of people jody you think know what best ball is. What percentage you think, know what dynasty if Well if you were to say to the typical fantasy football player, are you in a redraft league? I think the average fantasy player would say I'm Min of Fantasy League? I don't know if they'd know that term specifically. I would say. Oh, God. Twenty percent of people who play fantasy football. What best ball is an I'd probably put the same percentage of people to at least know what it is on on a dynasty link, which is different of course than a redraft keeper, League which which a Lotta people are familiar with where you can keep two or three players or one player, or whatever in that a dynasty league is like the. NFL you carry most of your roster over to the next to the next year. So Dan. Let's dive into it then with some of your. Roster Strategies for people that are in a dynasty or want to learn more about it. What is your sort of? Do you have like a core philosophy when it comes to your team? Yeah most. Certainly you know and I'm a little bit newer to the podcast circuit in the industry, but I'm far from new from fantasy. Football had been playing since I. was you know in the ninety s? Back when they didn't. Have you know the fancy software that does the stats Fria Joe Ross getting that USA Today or whatever that newspaper publications I think you know. Greg Embryos had back in the day and I would do the stats by hand for my league, and people would win wonder why I always would finish first or second I had such an edge doing adding up the stats and. I started doing keepers and redrafts, and then dynasties like potato chips. You know you can't just have one. And I take that coaching mentality and build a great team around me. I'm lucky to have you know John Bauer Mitchell source and over there at dynasty theory they got about no word of lie, one hundred plus dynasty teams between the two of them, their wives have got to be saints all right, and it started with me getting in one dynasty league, and I became friends with Mitch and he's GonNa. Get you up to five or six and then five or six now. I'm about twenty dynasty teams and. It starts with all that knowledge I talk to you guys about in our listeners. Sometimes they get intimidated by dynasties God's a lot of work. It's a lot of time, but utilize my time wisely I got about two acres of land, so I'm on the line more taken in about three or four Ross Tucker shows a couple Dole. Fantasy points shows. Absorbent all in I'm listening when I'm in the car. I'm in the shower. Driving at the gym. The podcasts are always on I think our listeners have got to be on twitter. If you're not on twitter, you're missing out because it's like a cult, their fantasy football knowledge, and then he should be subscribing to some lists I've got less than you could subscribe to mind. That are for just some of the best in the Biz when I want to just you know, eliminate the clutter and just get certain analytical takes, and I've got some larger groups. And then I'm doing my film study like I said in the I've got a good gauge for market value from there I love tears. I think organization is very big piece of this I. Love Joe Pippi in the black book. He does a good job of this of rank and tears by value. So when I'm drafting I'm looking to hey, you know if I have a mid late first. First Round Pick and do I take Travis Kelsey your George Biddle, that's GonNa. Give me a big advantage over fade and tight end, versus maybe taken a hopkins or a Julio and I could fade wide receiver a little more than still be pretty strong at the position, so I love draft in tears and trying to create an advantage throughout the draft by grabbing guys higher in the tears. Now, there's not one-size-fits-all biasi format. There's GonNa. Be Some people that listened that lake trading their first and second round picks. Adding draft capital and loading up in the fourth fifth sixth seventh rounds. That's not my style. I like to win now and still build a young roster. I like the train. My draft capital because a lot of those rookies don't always pan out and I have very confident. Might trading ability where fighting get a guy? I'm going to trade from somewhere along the line. There's going to be an impatient owner. That's going to give up on somebody and I'M GONNA. Get Him. So I try to get an advantage in year one go to win now. Trade some draft capital. Get a two three hundred point advantage by building my roster early. But then as I build my tears my rankings, I'm targeting. Those guys based on all the information I've taken in young have upside could break out, so maybe you. Don't have it all in year one by an attractive roster and you're too so I felt a little bit short i. still have guys I could trade. I'M GONNA be strong year to and I've done really well. I think I dynasties. Kind of supported Christmas, the dynasty winnings. You know last year. I was cruising. You know I think up till about week. fifteen was a little bad to me, so I had a lot of second and third place finishes, but profited, and it paid for Christmas and then. Then I do some DFS that pays the bills, but I try to draft young. I tried to anchor my team a running back. Ross I, think especially now this Belco. Running backs are very rare. WanNa. Make sure I got at least one. I like to have two good running backs, if I can to get an advantage at that position, and then in Dynasty I. Try to make sure I also like Super Flex format, so I like to have two quarterbacks anchored by at least one study very often this. This guy I do some shares of Mahomes Russell Wilson Deshaun Watson Young Superstar quarterbacks, and then my roster always has at least one superstar, so this off-season evaluated my twenty rosters. There were one or two that I wasn't really happy. The direction they were going in, so I had a super superstar that I could trade get a lot of draft capital still find another good player to replace him, and I kept those rosters strong, so that's a little bit of what I'm doing Ross. Just keeping on top of. Of the knowledge I think the last thing I'd say. Is You I? Stay really organized with my charts. I try to get one mentor even each year last year I spent the year working with Nelson Soza is like a redraft shark. You need some other business and he. He had a little service. They are and I just sponged knowledge from a year and plied something to my game of do the same thing this off season. Learn from someone else and apply it to what I'm doing enough fantasy football. Dan I love it. That was a very thorough and perfect explanation of kind of how you go about it. I want to get your thoughts on some specific players for this year, because that really transcends any of the different fantasy formats, but i. I hope you already have the draft.

They'll try to talk you through it, but I'm probably just going to be talking. About what picks I actually had Webb Simpson to win the tournament last week, so that was very nice. Much did you win? Over thousand bucks I mean just because of some of the offers that draft Kansas presented. This is not this is not part of the read by the way like draftkings had a great couple of offers, so if you combine the fact that I made the bet with the fact that I got three dollars for every stroke that Webb Simpson was under par, which was twenty, two under par, and then also that I got an odds boost on an American to win the tournament yet. I clear cleared a four figures for like for like twenty five dollars worth of actual, so that is amazing because I'm moving. I'm moving to South Carolina soon so I have to get by the way draftkings get on that. Get somebody in. Get Lobbyists in South Carolina a Philistine state when it comes to when it comes to sports betting Trust me when I tell you. They've got somebody on. It everywhere, yeah! My added Yeah. They're working on it. Just make sure you use the code Ross. If you're in a state, that's legal right now. All right. Dan, let's get into a couple of specific players, so whether it's redrafts or I just I'm in a fantasy football league Joe said or dynasty or best ball. GimMe Gimme. One Guy, give me one or two guys that you are really high on and you're. You're looking at a lot in your different leagues. A good point here for dynasty. Strategy Ross when you get these tips in it, and that's what I do. When I listened to the Ross Tucker show or fancy points, Joe or you guys are collaborating on the fantasy feast soon as I. Get that inside tip, I'm going through my twenty twenty dynasty leagues, and seeing where I could trade or acquire them. You know it's hot. Quick News in your stay aggressive in a couple of guys, I like one. I heard on fantasy points, reichheld Armstead You know when you hear that insight. That team is very high and organizations high on a player, and you know they want to move a guy like Leonard Fournette and I love Leonard, Fournette, because as you know my shameless plug. I got to play basketball with a few months ago, but if I wanna both Gimme. Leny Gimme right cal like lenny ends up going now. I got two good running backs on my team so. So you know at an ADP of to twenty eight late in a draft armstead's a nice guy to get I by the way, and you didn't hear that on fantasy points forget enough fantasy points. Okay. That was last week on the fantasy. Fees podcast as Joe and I, talked about my stellar best ball draft where I got it right Keller Reich well I. don't even know I always call them Reich well they are. Brought the fifteenth round or something deny Joe I got. Gray you did. It was an awesome pick and he's a guy. I've drafted a ton of so yeah I mean it's just it just makes sense. You know that the Jaguars tried to trade muntarbhorn and you know he's been suspended by the team for conduct detrimental to the team. At at a point, you know each sat injuries. What am I missing here? Why is Leonard Fournette a third round pick? And why is Reichel Armstead? A fifteen sixteen, th round pick I? Mean that just. Drafting him. Just make sense. Maybe he's not there back in the future. You know maybe you have to keep in mind. The colts tried to colts. Not Try to they did. They traded in front of them to draft Jonathan Taylor, so we know that the colts were at least scared that the Jaguars draft on at the Taylor but they did it. The Jaguars didn't get him. Reichel armstead could have an opportunity. I mean he is like. I'm not even sure it's fair to call them handcuffs because I. Think he could have legitimate opportunity this year. The there's just so much upside for that level of pick I I. Don't know if hype is getting out of Control in dynasty, but it's still really hasn't gotten there redraft so. He's going like seven eight rounds after Alexander Madison which no Madison showed more last year. delvin cookies holding out I. Understand all that, but I wonder if there's a similar level of upside there. You have another Guy Dan. You guys were locked and loaded for your show pal. Another guy like his drew lock. You know a little bit more of a popular name, but still being going a little late one fifty ADP. They're We had woody page on dynasty theory. If there's an episode you WanNa Watch is the one with woody he's. Drinking. Tequila and going off the camera and tell us some great stories about Michael Jordan. We talked about drew lock with them, and he's been covering Denver for thirty years and just being around the team. He's like he's got it factor. And I believe what he there you know. He eats his off. The Judy GonNa Denver before. The draft even happened in Denver. You know they're telling you what they're doing. They are invested in drew lock. They establish so many offensive weapons around him. You Know Sutton's back. They bring in Melvin Gordon. Jerry Judy gets drafted. Hamblur, it's a very talented offense, so I have high hopes about a young quarterback drew lock this year for Dynasty. When it comes to drew lock. You know it's a different. It's a different thing that John always doing like he is tried ever since losing peyton manning to retirement he's tried to. band-aid the quarterback position bringing in case keenum a bringing Joe Flacco to be fair. He did rap Paxton Lynch. It was a horrific bus, but he did try to get that quarterback of the future but this year we did the right thing. Do I know the drew lock is good. No, he was the second round. Pick for a reason and I mean that both on the positive and the negative. There's a reason drew lock wasn't a first round pick in the NFL draft, but there's also a reason. He wasn't a fifth round pick in the NFL draft and I think he showed more of those positive traits, but we got this five. Five Games it was a small sample. He didn't drop back to throw all that many times, but we saw a lot of positives and I. Think John Elway made the right call surrounding with talent. Bring in Judy, bringing Ham or bringing Gordon they drought drafted Ochoa Bonham the tight end to go with no fan. They have a lot of tight end. They have a lot of weapons. They're Andrew Oxen Athlete. He's Got Kinda Cutler. Ish Quality to yeah I would buy right now. He's getting a little bit a hype because of the weapons around him, but I'd I'd invest in a young quarterback like that G and Dan I'm looking at your. Notes you sent me about guys that you like? Irv Smith Ian Thomas Tyler higby Gerald Everett you get a lot of tight ends. Bro, you're a lot younger ends that you like, and you know in a season. Where if you're not getting to me the big three there of Kelsey kittle I'm very high Mark Andrews number three, but if I'm not getting them depending on how those first couple rounds were Faden. Faden and everyone who has one or two strategy getting the big guns, or you're fading and they're the guys I'm targeting a very high and tight ends this year. I think Herb Smith. Super, young talent I think he's going to be us like a receiver from what I'm listening to. You may be the number two option in Minnesota Ian Thomas. He flashed on. On film for me last year he definitely pass the eye test and you know he's replacing alleged in Greg Olson where things are going to do well in Seattle or talking dynasty here I, really like the and Thomas and then higby Gerald. Everett. They both look good on film to me. You know I mean. Hagi was awesome last year and it kind of. Of goes with Jacksonville strategy where you know Joe was talking about for net and Armstead. You know that he likes. There's two running backs. They're so. I'M GONNA. Draft them. Both Everett's a free agent after the season. Then hopefully, my dynasty roster has to starting tight ends next year, so I'm playing for this year, but also help myself a year from now. Joe Does, it. Make you like I'm curious when Dan called it the big three. And it's Kelsey kittle, and Andrews and he's other than those three. Do you think he's correct. That hurts. If you don't get one of the top three, you fade everybody else or is this. His Eagles hate as a cowboys fan who saw his completely healthy more talented team choke last year against the Eagle. This is his cowboys hate spewing from Dan Lamantia. I don't I. Don't know about that. because. There is some rationale to I mean Erz is getting older, so there's there's two sides of the same coin with Earth's. He was never a guy who kind of one with explosive athleticism. The way that the way that Kelsey kiddle Andrews can do. So the question is. Does somebody like Zakar fade away earlier because he didn't have the next level, athleticism or To bring up a Dallas Cowboy. Does he hang around and produce deep into his career like Jason witten because of the ways he wins as a route, runner and move in the chain, so I agree with Andrews's number three for for dynasty, and by the way it's, it's not just speculating Oh Zach ertz getting older because Travis Kelsey as well. It's the fact that the eagles have a really good number. Two tight end in Dallas. So there's both of those things if I can get it. For cheaper I have seen him falling downdraft, or it's not just in dynasty, but in redraft that I'm going to buy in, but I've typically employed the same strategy more so in best ball than dynasty this year. If I didn't get kindle, kittle, Kelsey or Andrews on kind of waiting, and I'm going to get two or three of those later around tight ends. I'm really on Herb Smith I'm in on Ej. Hopkinson this year Hayden hearst. Guys I'm, GonNa I'M GONNA build with those guys as opposed to drafting Hunter Henry Oren, Evan Ingram or a higby in the middle rounds because I really liked the way my teens look if I go early tight end or late tight end I. Don't love how they look. If I go in the middle, Ross, you and I talked about that on our best ball podcasts where I took evidence Ingram I. believe in the seventh round and I thought it was an stake. If I could do it again, I drafted a wide. Wide Receiver there. Joe As as the official here I'm using my challenge flag on Ross here all right that that dig of the you know the eagles cowboys game last late last year. The clapper's gun roses is a new season a new era in Dallas football and you know on the theory show Ross Tucker was a guest and gave us some great insight as he covers the eagles on how high they are in. Dallas got her. So I think there's going to be going elsewhere. The Big Three I gave them. Joe Do I do I get to win that challenge I think that was a cheap dig on on last season, which is over, and he forgot about the great insight. He gave his on dynasty theory. Well. I think you're right about the dynasty, though, but the cowboys should be embarrassed. They lost that game weather. Case. Frankly it was the eagles practice squad. Ted All their dudes and they lost the Elsa Carson Wentz and the broad street backups. It was unbelievable. But that's another story for another day. Make sure you check out Dan on social media at F- F coach Dan also his show dynasty theory at dynasty theory, F F two great show part of our network, and you can tell how passionate Dan is about it.

NBA official died Mr. bond fake, grandma nightmare inches back. Look at fancy pants deal for here camps, Dorton, a limo. Joe ross. And of course, the captain of the tweet of the week army and his fair lady. Mr mrs. Now, why do we start with tweeted the week this week? Wow. That's because Thursday, November eighth around ten six PM eastern are very elite Ellis goes and wins himself tweet of the week with this tweet at Leila's tweets. This might be mellows best game for the thunder. But we still. Bad boy. Four and a half grand. Wow. Well, I mean mellow was awful. No. I mean, it wasn't like I had to really think too hot about that this week there. The rockets playing the thunder on TNT first game of the doubleheader. He goes one for eleven. Which is amazing. He didn't actually hit a shy in the ball. Never went through the hoop for mellow on Thursday night. He got there was a goaltending. Call underlines Noel on a layup. So you count that field goal. So one of eleven, but this was my way to get into this. For one to hopefully, not have to hear the real. We don't. Decide that later, but to to get into this game because I think it's a fair spot to start because the rockets they put up the cranium and wrong. Those the worst offensive performance of the season from all teams eighty point eighty points is the lowest this year. Well, the tests certainly said it was yes. Statistically, maybe not. But pretty close to it. Just awful they looked they lacked energy. They lacked effort it they got that lead early in the second quarter. I think they were up by one point. I'm pretty much from there, then the thunder just walked away with it. And the ruckus didn't have any real resistance at any point. Look, no, Eric, Gordon. I got that in for but hardens playing Chris Paul's playing Capello's playing no Westbrook on the other side of things and the thunder are playing well at seven straight now. But what did you take away from this stinker here from the rockets, and is it, you know, should you start panicking about this team being and six after ten games, I wouldn't panic. But as soon as they have an injury with Erik Gordon any injury, really tiny their key guys. They're they're so thin. They don't seem to. Find a different way to play when their offenses and going all that. Well, they're the isolation kings and James earning. Chris Paul didn't have their third guy in air cord into play isolation with them. And then James harden. Chris Paul aren't getting it going, and they just seem to be like, okay, no passes step back shoot and not really taking it to the hoop enough. And they don't have enough guys that can play isolation basketball around them that are healthy they desperately need air corden because otherwise they're relying on Carmelo Anthony a little, you know, PJ Tucker and guys that you've never heard of. And that's it. They're just they're just really thin, and they have to have other guys healthy, and they haven't been into it this entire season. I don't think they got three wins against bad east Eastern Conference teams by single digits. And it seemed like maybe they've sort of figured things out at least if you can get some wins. Maybe you can get rolling kind of get back to plan as hard as you were last year. They haven't been so far five free throws combined for James harden, Chris mall. That's crazy. Yeah. A quarter basically for James harden. He should be getting five every single quarter. I don't know. They just don't seem to have the same desire to win as they did last season. I think they're probably going to walk all over teams. Maybe after going toe to toe with the warriors for five games taken them to seven games. They're just not into it. They're playing like they wanna championship last year. And they didn't. Guys. Either hardener Chris Paul to really take it on their shoulders up on their shoulders to to win a game. And Chris Paul was trying yesterday. He was doing some things. But not enough and heart and definitely wasn't doing enough defensively. Chris Paul wasn't really no last night. You got blown by which is rare to see you. Which is rare to see Chris and people started when I don't know maybe age is catching up with this guy, spend, pretty bad so far this. Yeah. And the Senator played a great game. I got to give a great defensive game. Obviously. I mean, the rockets were missing shots, and they didn't have that sort of fight to them. But that's a big part of it was the thunder. Paul George was everywhere. Six steals in this. They got contributions across the board. They're just a great defensive team. They have been for the most part last couple of years. So that makes sense. But this is now this I saw this tweet going around think it was Tim Bontemps, but Houston has been held under ninety points. Three times in ten games this year matching their total from the previous two seasons. Two seasons combined. This is a team that has no problem scoring. It's always whether they can have an above average defense to pair with it. And right now, they're struggling on both sides of the ball and not to provide excuses for them. But kind of like the Cavs last year where we saw various iterations of their teams throughout the year, a lot of trades. A lot of injuries. They've already had a few rations other team. And it is a bit of an excuse that James harden was that with a hamstring injury. Or Gordon is now Chris Paul with the suspension a lot of backup guys out as well. And then a and Brandon Knight, it isn't excuse, but combined with the fact that they're thin. They haven't been able to get it going because they're so desperate. They rely so much on those two guards. And yeah, they haven't got it going whatsoever in four and six I don't think you can panic at this point. When does when does Darryl MAURICE start to panic? That's what I'm curious about. Because he's not if they continue to struggle. He's the last GM in the league that just sits there and goes, all right? Let's just keep running with it. He will do something. Well, he's he will try. He's already trying has tried to get how did Jimmy Butler there, and he's probably still trying to work something out. But that room a tooth off it up full first round picks. So you know, he's probably what if it comes back to. Well, the the wolves want rotation players show we want, Gordon and Tucker. Yeah. I mean, I think more would be reluctant to give up. Both of those goes. I think he knows how important it'd be great to get Jimmy. But how important Tucker is to have any chance to warriors? There's no way trade Tucker mean he would he would give up Gordon and pick some show Gordon still provides that Spock off that off the bench, which they are missing so far this season. So you know, he's gonna but the thing is with mellow as well, I mean, not to pile on mellow. He too much, but. Well, if he's not scoring he doesn't defend it, doesn't it doesn't create. He doesn't he's a negative player. He doesn't he doesn't even move the ball and try to get in and contest rebounds or anything. Like, he's basically like I'm shooting. If I get the ball, and that's it. That's all I'm giving you. So if he doesn't play like he did against the nets that other night where he hit a bunch of the show. Twenty eight points. You're right. He gives you nothing nothing else. No. And that's the big concern because he dantonio have had some tension in the past. And Dan, Tony kinda has the play. Yeah. Does the anto? There's no way dantonio has. I mean this short as well. So he's you know, he needs him on the God when he's out there. It's like he just I mean, he's just awful right now. Well last night, he was just that was one of the worst. This is nothing new where teams just go. They find him. And they go at him because he's not going to put much a fight. Definitely. But I mean, you also have to think James Ennis hasn't done anything for this team works be at least in a reason I replacement defensively and he hasn't been so and he's he's mellow can score. Sometimes I mean, obviously like not last night, but he's had some double digit games to me though. It's it only comes down to Chris Paul. And James harden. Chris Paul has been bad. I think it's worth starting to worry if he's actually going to get it back to. Al- NBA level because I don't really see it. I mean, he's under forty percent from the field under thirty percent from three just doesn't look like he's got the pot again. Remember, he was Chris Paul like was against the nets when they held the little players only huddle and they were down big fourteen in the first half to the nets. And they needed a win. It was like one of those we got to get a win here. And he played great decades, and sort of did have a bit of a Chris, Paul Tico. But otherwise, I'm with you. He's looks slow. They've got to get basically fifty points and twenty assists from James harden. Chris Paul and that just hasn't been the case yet. And if those guys aren't taking care of most of your offense, where's it gonna come from if mellows going one for eleven Eric Gordon, and that's otherwise you look up and down the roster. No, they don't have anybody. They're playing Gary Clark and Hartenstein and literally his name. And. And you know, they played Mark Michael Carter Williams for awhile. And he has not good. Brandin Knight is her James, basically every every every key guy has been injured at some point other than Melo because he's still plays. Thunders? Oh, again, seven in a row now. That's after they started the season. Great for that is great. I think it makes it I like that it makes the less a little more interesting to them sort of getting back up into the, you know, not the top of the top. But at least upper echelons some sort of the west that feels like it at least. And they got their next four games against bad teams to bottom. Third of the league. They could run off some more winter in a row, they could get the streak up to ten I think quite easily if they take care of business. I have had a fairly soft schedule to this point for their wins. This team really really seems to like each other though too. I know we were getting the Roskam on TNT crazy. Remember seeing that or the game's going let's go to a two bucks just to see Russel rating, and it was actually sort of entertaining to. But I do I mean they do seem to like really get along go to bat for each other. They had the summer house hype party summer hype house party, whatever it was. And then obviously Paul George had a great time decided to sign back then they had that unfinished business on winning a playoff series. They're all in together pretty much everybody back. That's a big thing. They have the continuity. They ditched mellow. Maybe that's a huge part of why they're chemistry is so good. They look like they know their roles they're playing defense. And that's what they have to do. Good game from the sun to their again. The first game of TNT. The second game bucks shocked shocked a lot of people at least the bucks nap. The warriors eight game winning streak with a one thirty four to one eleven blowout victory in the oracle. So this one's in Golden State. The honest, did you honest things twenty four points. Boards and just like twenty six minutes. Got a lot of help though. From some of his guys Eric Bledsoe is at the best Derek. Let's game that we've seen in a long time in in a bucks uniform. Yeah. Maybe maybe ever maybe ever. Okay. I think sure you're impressed with it yourself from Milwaukee. Yeah, they're nine and two. And you'd think you know, just sort of looking at them that maybe has taken an another step in exploded. But really he's the same guy shooting the same amount of shots as last year's actually scoring a little bit less because there's three balls not not doing too, well, but they have a system and you watch them play and everybody's contributing and the ice is just excited to be a part of a team. That's goes five out and has a lot of shooters and a lot of scores, and it's just a new system implemented and same guys. And everything is fine. He's giving it on the defensive end. I find they're they're very invigorated. They've got him in John Henson Henson blog. You Durant a weekly up from Durant? And then. Yeah, you honest him as well. I think it's just the system employed just makes got everybody energetic. The funny thing is the bucks actually had their worst three not of the season. Which is which is what they've been doing all season long, but eighty four points in the pint. Yeah, most had this as and by bat twenty and. And you could just tell Draymond green wasn't they whether or not they were tacking because it wasn't they owe. Because the three point shot wasn't a probably a little bit of both. But, you know, Kvant looney Jordan bell and whoever else was there in the in the middle there for the for the warriors just doesn't have that same presence that Draymond green has Draymond supplying. There's no way they they know. How important that guy? Cont offense for that matter. Yeah. I I looked I looked it up actually because I looked like a different team up there. So I wondered how bad the warriors have been without Draymond green to prove my point last year without Draymond green. The warriors were ten and two. The year before that they were five and one. Pretty good. It did look like a different team. They're ten into who cares about this game for them. Better than they were last year at this point, they're fresher. They're fine. Here's why you might care. We're waiting to find out how severe it is. But Steph curry he goes, Steph curry goes down in this when he goes to the locker room with a leg injury there in the third quarter. He didn't return he he tweaked it. There was a new play in transition from the bucks, and he jumped and he seemed to sort of tweak it before he even landed. I think when when he jumped he may be stranded or whatever happened, but it's a left a doctor strain, and he's going to have his MRI exam today. Now from what you were hearing from the guys last night after the game. It didn't like Durant saying he seems like fi like he seems fine. You know, you don't know until they obviously take a look at it. But. Could away he was playing and how important he is to that team as well. I mean, this could be bad news. We hope it isn't. And you don't you hope? He's out if he misses anything as a couple of games, and that's it. But yeah, it was a great performance on the books, and you're right, no dream on. But I'd like to say though, about the whole thing they were getting waxed. When Steph game was over, and that's probably contributed to him like not coming back. Ninety eight to bring him back for this one. But it it was one of those ones sort of pulled away, and you could tell it was something was uncomfortable for him. But the locker room didn't seem to be overly concerned by it. I saw some bucks fan sort of worrying though in the comments over today. I thought this was interesting. So I forget who specifically to wrote this in the comment section, but they said books blow at the seventy Sixers on national TV but steps goes for fifty plus so the bucks don't get any headlines books. Crushed the raptors. But clay sets the NBA record for three. So the bucks don't get any headlines books. Destroy the warriors and the oracle but stuff gets hurt. So that's the lead story in the bucks won't get any headlines. Bad locked down with the bucks bucks. I mean are the bucks getting enough attention from the national media right now with the record being fantastic. And and picking up quality wins. I mean, these are good winds, obviously against seventy Sixers and Rapson and the warriors. They get enough love. I think so we talking bad and quite a bit. Yeah. Know, we're talking definitely how they have Chinese style. From the the Jason Kidd joke Bronte season, they want all that fun to watch. Now. I mean, there's a ton of threes. They just come down and just stop firing away. But you feel that they are trying to maximize Janas impact on the offensive end. Even though he's numbers as test mentioned kind of with I were lost season. It's still incredible still amazing twenty six thirteen six. You see? Feels like so many tons of game where he just has that open line where he can go inside and just sort of believes white pasta. He feels at times unstoppable. It's and there's been a lot of talk now with the way they're playing. I know you guys have seen this. I'm sure like on Twitter and articles about like should when you approach the bucks. Should you? Try like the whole Steve Nash approach and make Janas just flat out score. And like let him just try and go for his fifty and takeaway, everybody else, basically, the Nash like strategy at times, it was like, you know, he wants to pass he wants to get everybody going and they got much shooters around him. So make Steve the score. Can you do? Yes. I think so because there's. Because he's almost a foot taller than. Yeah. Yeah. I'm just going through guys. He doesn't have a shot. He really doesn't have a shot at this point. And he's shooting twenty five percent from three whatever it is something bad, but he just bullies through guys works either because he can get to the lot. Like, he he is a star you warrants. A lot of calls is strong as an ox so easy. You can take that you can initiate the contact and take the fell and he's a great free throw shooter. So like they were in Bodas quicken this one, right? The the bucks were it's like different strategies. It's not naturally have been doing that. I get the idea though of takeaway, Robin. Takeaway Middleton, you know, take away all these shooters. Maybe it is your best chance, but they're all capable dudes. I mean, they're all capable scores. I think you know, but deserves credit you can kind of see this year modern MBA coaches on Nick nurse in Toronto coach, bud. No more guys who can't really score all that much. Just try and spread it out with five guys as much fossil. And if you have to have one dunker, that's fine. But not too. There's. What you need you need to spread the floor as much as possible. And he's got it's got a bit of the hawks vibe. I think from the boot Knowles days, it's not just says going for thirty five and other guys scoring. It's Millsap Horford. Carol Korver Teague everybody can score when you have a system. Other guys. They're going to seed Pat Coniston had fifteen last night. Right. They had five guys in double figures. They wanna game without Janas playing because everybody has something to do. You. Don't just stand there and wait for something to happen like with what was happening with Jason Kidd and their space out there, and they say shoot a three man. We don't care. Yeah. Your coach has your back before the gave something you just we're talking to their tasks Steve Kerr talked about how successful buttonholes are is excuse me was with the hawks and like getting them to sixty wins. But he pointed out the one key difference now with booed, Holsworthy bucks. Is he has a superstar? That is true. Yeah. That that's the glaring thing to me. It's as much as I enjoyed watching those sixty one hawks teams, and they were great, and I like horror. Yeah. They're all great players. But they are not superstars they are. Not yet Jaanus. I thought it was funny had that FOSS break last night. And he basically took off the dunk it from just inside the three point line. He came up a little bit short. Yeah. But it was ended up missing. For a second thought if eighth throws down. This is going to be the greatest we've ever seen. Klay beliefs, but he picked it because it's like what you do in junior. Sometimes when you get that fast break your saw it and you take off to do. Yeah. He was taking this too. Is he cannot throw this down and he didn't. But man looked awesome. For that. Second thought he was going to do it did this game because it was a you know, a TNT game and national game. He had a good performance and Korea did it, and he is worse. Gaming injury came into play. Did did you honest to you sort of overtake the MVP latter right now number one at the top. Is there someone else that you have above him? Or would it be the Greek freak number one right now ten or eleven games in? Where would you have them? I don't know curry had his worst game in the warriors lost house curry and still not the MVP. There's so many ways to talk about it. I just think that curry being as good as he has been to start the season. He's still number one for me. But it's up for grabs. It seems like every week. We're like this guy's the leader. This guy is the leader. And that's how it is at the beginning of the season. Whoever puts together the best week is the leader in the clubhouse. So maybe it is Janas. We'll see what he does this weekend. They win a ton of game. So I think it's going to be him. Jaanus really do. Yeah. Unless unless as you guys have said before curry does some insane fifty fifty ninety type thing with thirty points per game. Which I I mean, even its greatest he is is probably unlikely or or if you continues to get pub like Tom Habash rose article regarding him as the new Michael Jordan, the voters say, maybe we haven't given him enough respect. Maybe he is on another level that we haven't really quite seen and giving them credit for and you know. Yeah. And he says to win a lot of games. It's totally true sodas, Anthony Davis. Unfortunately, their team is lost. Because he's been hurt. Really? So yeah. Missing games for the rats. We're going to win it though. He's played great. But he's not gonna gnashed. Okay. Let's move onto probably the game of the night. It was the Celtics sons it went to overtime. I think the ringer nailed this with their headline this morning. I saw Kyrie Irving saved Boston from a sports talk radio meltdown. Is that not true? I mean, kyri uncle drew goes for eighteen of his season-high thirty nine in the fourth quarter and overtime. Boston was down twenty two points. And they won by seven in the end they shot forty percent. And they still want the trail double digits for basically a really good chunk of the second half. That's great. The Celtics are struggling and they're seven and four in Cairo save them, and they saved them. Yeah. For sure. But the it no matter what happened in that game. They don't look, right. They look really odd. They don't look like Tatum doesn't look like the guy who's taking the next step. John Brown, doesn't you know Hayward? Obviously does not look like himself, but they're surviving. I'm not so worried. I don't know. Yeah. Fed a little bit bad for the Suns last night. Because I thought for a young team. There was a couple of Kohl's not blaming the referees at all. But there was a couple of calls that maybe they would have gotten if they're a better team. I think a young team that struggles sometimes doesn't get those whistle book ahead of a three point opportunity where I think I think it was Cari sort of wacky went out of bounds thought that was a fad that in. Coal. And then there's another one later on as well that I thought book should have gotten a coal foreign he didn't. But then the Suns offense did just let a stagnate at the end with just needed to just get one or two more baskets, and they couldn't stop. But again, that's the young team doesn't know how to close out a game. That's right. And and that's what you thought. That's what you thought up twenty thought this is going to be that because win of the season. But that would have been a nice win for that. But then he comes back, and I mean, he's awesome to watch. When it gets John. Oh, no doubt. I know everyone that listens to this podcast Nozomi big Devon Booker fan. I do like them love this game. I think he is a star in the making. But he was atrocious down the stretch. He was and he hit shots. Yeah. But on the other side, he was a train wreck. You know, Jalen Brown. They were up twelve with like three minutes ago some crazy shots and kudos to him. But there was like that fast-break opportu. Jaylen Brown Booker was back, and he lets them wall. He almost got out of his way. I think he's trying to half ass take charge. But he put no effort into it. And he just like mandatory defense out of his way. Let them score like them wrap them up. But what's the harm in this year? Like you're giving away two points here in a game. That's you know, it's getting tight. So he has that then he has the turnover. Fifteen seconds left. You know, he tries to go left on Jaylen Brown kyri. Great defense dug in left his guy popped it out. They go the other way Booker did hustle back in the end. It didn't matter. Celtics still score. Jalen, I guess ended up scoring one. And then the one that everyone is talking about we can get into the sun's decision. Not to foul up three five or six seconds left. Marcus Morris gets the ball with his back to the basket his bags to the basket and booker's this guy. He's on them. I mean cost you cough says after the game that the plan was to fell why wrap them up there. I don't know you have to foul there. Curry's on fire. Marcus Morris is great three point shooter and has been playing really well, these are the two guys involved. Joe great shot, and it was a great play. But come on. You don't think you should all right? I just like watching the play. Goes back to what we just said about a young team. Yeah. Pooh, poohing it. Hopefully, that's the thing. Bookable learn from that he'll watch the typing. All right. This guy. He I got a family. A family. That's l they do Lun. You're getting paid big bucks. Time to play little. Again like that. I get it sometimes like whether or not you should fell up three or you shouldn't because like you can you can get a little risky with it. Because maybe the guy starts to shoot fouling, we'll know shooting with a guy has his back to the basket like Morris did in this play that is you just you just go behind him and wrap them up. Put him the line play the free throw game. You're a great shooter. The ball's probably come to you Booker. You're gonna get chance to redeem yourself because you did miss one. Then go up there and knock down to more. And you're gonna win this game fans. What a love to boo Morris. Playing his way. Very upset about leaving. They would've loved to boom. You're gonna miss one of those. He was happy. When you get that three was talking to look like talking to the crowd. Yeah. But I mean, that's the thing the sons they got a new coach they got, you know, young plays inexperienced. No, no team that just that really the avalanche came. And I just couldn't resist it at all. Part of that whole game. That was interesting to Terry Rozier playing in this game for the Celtics and his name has been linked as a possibility as a guy that the Suns are interested in trading for we talked a little bit about it on yesterday's television show, the the idea of whether or not like what's going on with the Celtics is Danny Ainge because he walked back these rumors from Shams, obviously, Sean excuse me at the saying, you know, seven teams are interested Interros here. And we get home. We get that Dineage comes out like a couple hours later saying, no, that's not the case. Record. No one's interested in them. I would've liked I loved the terriers here on the sons. I think he'd be a great little punch with a guy like Booker little defense being nice to get a little tenacity because Isaiah cannons not cutting it as your guys down, Kyrie Irving live for myself. Yeah. Choices are like him and Jamal Crawford. It's tough. Yeah. Terry rozier. It would be nice there for sure. But I mean, I'm sure they would be worried about taking the ball. Devon, Booker hands. I don't know. It doesn't seem like rosier can exist in Boston pass this season. So I wonder if they try and train him now because he's got a tiny contract. Yeah. So they can't get a lot of players back for him. But he's going to be important in the postseason if they're trying to make a run to the finals rosier was incredible in the postseason last year had like six straight twenty point games or something like that. You just trade him for picks. Oh, that's a tough choice for a day. Then he that is it's because it's your right? How important will he be? He's insurance for kyri a guy that does get injured. Definitely as we saw. You played great in the playoffs. Yeah. First things first AT and T just bought our company. Maybe we can scour Danny ages phone history. Privacy violations. Probably is he AT and T customer. Don't know Terry gross here would be good there. Yeah. I think people either on the one side that he needs a point guard beside him or he is the next James harden endeavour, right? So maybe needs the ball in his hands. He Terry needs the bars Hanson quite a bit. I if you're like when he's out there. So it's it's an maybe they can make it offensively alone though, different than Patrick Beverley. Right. He needs a Terry. He needs a terror right beside him. And yet he's as traits that he's got three million dollars contract. So it's it's nothing. So what do you trading them for you know, they got a couple of little little guys. They're on Phoenix that maybe can snag as backup point guards for your future and Elliott Kobo. Dante Melton loved that names. Want to say it and have on your Celtics roster. I think you've got to do at trade tear. He's not going to be there. It's highly highly highly unlikely unless they're scared of Kyrie's injury history or something they may secure him. But they got so they're paying too many guys. They're paying Hayward and Horford max Steel's kyri over twenty. And then you get a backup guy and Marcus smart that's already just signed in tens of millions of bucks. So just do it. I think unless rosier is. You know, hurting the locker room because he's pouting or he wants more time. And and by all accounts, he is not. I mean, he he was at he addressed this before shootaround before last night's game. You said I go from starting in the playoffs to coming off the bench. I'm pretty sure it's not easy for nobody. But I'm not complaining. And if you know me, I would never be the one complain about it. He's not complaining if he was then I see why you might want to try and move him. You're probably not resigning him because he's going to get. I don't know. What's he gonna get fifteen sixteen million at least at least maybe twenty. Maybe. Yeah. So yeah. Ship though, I. She is rocking the boat. Then maybe. Yeah. Then you look to move him. But if he is fine with his role and coach Stevens can convince them that, you know, you're an important piece. And we've got to find you minutes here and there and as the season's goes on maybe you do rescue here. And there to like, I don't know that's tough. That's a tough. We that was we joked about it. But this one wanna Stevens. Gelin geologists this year was to juggle all these talented players find the mo- minutes make keep them. Oh, happy. So let struggling a little bit. Yeah. All those really talented guys. But I don't know. I'd give them more than eleven games because Brad Stevens should figure it out. But yeah, they they're not great. They're not great bad this week, the New York Times Mark Stein reported that the NBA and the players union have agreed to televise the all-star draft in late January shadow to Rachel Nichols. She did it. She did it last year the NBA as we all know they debuted the all star draft where the top two vote getters. They picked the pick the teams from a pool of all stars. So we had curry and LeBron now we didn't see it. It was just sort of announced. But then LeBron soon afterwards saying that was so much fun. We should televise this. So and it did. D, of course, was to try and make the all star game. A little more interesting by mixing up two conferences didn't work. Yes. It came down to. I think he did it come down to Durant and LeBron guarding Steph curry on the last play. Yep. Now worked you guys we're into it. Definitely more fun. But Espy nations goes face, Tom Zillur. He wants to take this one step further. So we're televising it. Okay. We don't know exactly when we're gonna televise it this something you guys debated in crossfire, whether or not it will be like a week or two before which will likely be the case on twenty nine through the thirtieth of January is what the reporters report is. So it's weeks prior. People would like you would like to just do the draft right there. And then right there on the floor on the floor. Exactly, exactly. Which would be cool. But Zillur has a whole other thing he wants jerseys on the floor. No, no, okay. Keep on a table. Grime you in there on the ground. We used to do her kids box box number numbers for small guys. Big numbers. Let's go box paintings. But Zillur here's what he wants to do. And I'll just quote him here because he read this yesterday putting all of the all stars into a pool to avoid east versus west battles is necessary for the draft format, obviously. But the NBA really ought to abandon conference alignment when selecting all stars in the first place. So instead of voters fans players in the media, picking five east and five west starters and coaches, picking seven eastern seven west reserves as you just be one big pool voters should pick ten starters coaches should pick fourteen reserves who cares about the conferences? What's getting at here is we don't need the perfect twelve and twelve east twelve west it can be twenty, you know, less than than do the math and figure out how many left from these. What do you think about that? Is that too extreme though? It's not I think that's right. I think that's the probably the next step in the NBA. We'll take maybe not this season. But I think in coming is they probably will. Because I think if you look at how many all star in the Western Conference this year who've been tried at all saw into whatever there's a lot more than there are in the Eastern Conference. You're going to get a couple of guys who perhaps under? Serving in the east get in Gaza and the west deserving, but if there's a if there's a cap on the west they won't get insurance an exhibition game as it is. We we've gotten rid of the conferences actually playing the game yet because we're doing the dress. It doesn't mess. So who cares? I wanna see the stars. Yes. You're gonna miss CNN Joma glor- out there. I think you're like he shouldn't be in the game. Maybe reason. Okay. Once one time. Jeff teague. Script positions as well. Then just have just go best twenty. Yes. Because today's NBA game you're getting close enough you could do that. And and again, I think it should be just the most deserving players. And if that means his nineteen God's, okay, that's nineteen guts that won't be. But you know, because they think they should bring centreback centers. But they'll get in. Anyway, I mean Beato getting Durant Durant Davis. We'll get in who else. Have we got Yokich Yokich? He's I mean. I think if you take ways games up to the he's probably getting in anyway. So I think it will still reward the players regardless of position myself. Okay, tasks you love it. I love it. Chasse? You love it. I love it. Yeah. Yeah. Next the next step. I mean, it make sense, right? Yeah. And people were I know you were tweeting about the whole like let's just draft the teams right before the game. You're getting some pushback, right? Like, the idea of like, how would it work logistics is that what people are upset about like jerseys? This this this game is about personality people love this game because you see people's faces in players emotions, and that's how they sell this game. And so why wouldn't you wanna see every single player be drafted? Right. If you do it into it. If you do two week before there's no way you're going to have more than the two guys in a studio doing it. Right. I want to see all twenty four guys. And it's understandable. Why they're not doing it. Because guys will be peeved and pissed off and guys feelings beans will come into play the NHL has done it. Yep. And the NBA should do it as well. And yes, they can do it in our before you can print a LeBron jersey in black and Brown jersey turns. Do that. And listen speeds for sqi was was who got very upset with enough variance. He's he brought up a point that guys like or people who buy merchandise liked to have the authentic jersey. So in the weeks prior if you know LeBron is going to be on team black like he was last year, then you can buy a black jersey. But it's not it's no longer east and west. So I don't to me just sell both of them either the black jersey or the wagers I think for every guy that says every person who buys a jersey that says, I don't know what jersey they're gonna play in. So I'm not going to buy you get another person that says, oh, I like it. Yeah. I think that's not really an issue to me. And he brought up the the the problem with selling it in arena. And that they wouldn't have what do you? What do you put James on the back of both of them? Yeah. That's what I think. That's what I don't know. Some some people are traditionalist some people want to see east and West End. And actually, I he brought up the point that that's what people want because that's who he talks to on a daily basis. So. He knows more than us in terms of merchandise Louis, but you know, I'm not in the marketing department, but I think that's exactly what you do. You take a focus group, and you figure it out. And I think worldwide I think you'd sell just as many, I agree with you. Especially now that it's not east west thing. It's different. Yeah. Now, it's it's just the color and their own logo. Lebron teams. Did you see that on the there's a black one with a Cavs or a white one with right? Yeah. And a kid say stay Steph or LeBron on jersey at all. No, it was just a jersey of a cool color. The thing. Why we need two weeks in advance. So that we can get that far. We got last year of the full worry is with our old doing something. Cool. Then clay was just off to the side. Doing something weird. We need those photos back, man. That was a great moment. I mean. Yeah. That is the the one plus or positive for the drafting advances. Just like, oh, which team is better. I mean, we get a little bit of that. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. You lose that. If you don't if you do it the day Friday kick off all star weekend with a nice draft. Everybody sticks around. What exactly do it? You could even do it the night before you do it at the guy's Saturday night. Number one. They're all there is. They're all there is it is they're all gonna be acting cool fits. No. Lathered up get him angry where they the feistiest right before game for an exhibition game on Sunday after the party. On Saturday when they got their sunglasses on or they're going to react. They don't care. The want to show off their fits the lawns. Get have the world. And what they're wearing. Yeah. No. I think that's great. I like to I met I'm fine with the Friday to Saturday. They're all there for Saturday. That's why I wouldn't say they're all there. I mean, I think you could get them there. You get you get. So maybe that's what you got stick. Let's no hash day start passionate about this. I think we do he's wearing it all starts for crying out loud ninety two all star game. How would that one? Go. Yeah. That was great. That was. Last-second switch to a wrench. Do man. Red shoes and blue shoes got the matching shoes. Yeah. You need to wear matching shoes. I mean, people are serious about their jerseys. Not mock tour skis point, it's a fair point people are serious about their jerseys. They are it's true. It's true. I'm not wearing. Have you seen anyone? Early. How is Larry? Luke gonna text me to say, can you get me a Paul Millsap all starter? Here's the problem with this. If you're so serious about having that jersey, then buy it when we know what team is on. What are you going to have it to weeks and advanced a rock around for everyone show off how much LeBron this really gotta have that jersey? They'll make the jersey the day over the it'd be for sale the night of the game. Go. Shipping. These days you'll get it. Right. And what you don't see all star jerseys. I won't around much. No, you don't after the occasion. Maybe it'd music festival in the summer. But. Games. Not again. It's pretty rare. It is. Yeah. Yeah. Let's let's get to worst of the week. Ladies and gentlemen, the worst. Five nominees ready to discuss I one is an annual worse of the week nominee. It's becoming biannual though. Usually it's around March madness time. But now the person who makes the argument that this NCWA team can beat this NBA team. So the best NC double a team can always beat the worst NBA team usually in March. But this year it came to fruition here in November. Paul Pierce was probably the most popular person to say it said that Duke would be the Cleveland Cavaliers right now. You might be right. Yes. We've built this. This could be true. That being said, he's probably right. No. I think that Cleveland would crush them for sure they weren't. The last time. This was a huge thing was when Charlotte was terrible and Kentucky had the guys who became the number one and two draft picks. Anthony Davis M K G, and they would have got crushed by the Bob cats who what won eleven today. They came up with the and seven and what city. Sit. Shortened season, right? Lowest winning percentage of all time. It also came up with the ten eleven Kentucky wildcat rotation. You know, and they're rolling Karl Anthony towns and all those dudes. Yeah. Yeah, they didn't even win the net. They didn't even win the net. NCWA champions. Yeah. That's right. And neither Marcus cousins Kentucky team when they had five first round draft picks. They would never happen. It would never happen. No, okay. Okay. Who went everybody gets? Who who went top three this year? Do you? Andre Eytan Bagley bag of beans and don't Josh. Number three. Okay. So would those three guys together right now just put them together say they don't get the practice. And then you've got to obviously fill out the roster with whoever. Would they be the Cavs right now? Would you would they be favored to the calf? Now, here's what I'm getting at college basketball expert by any means, but and trae you'd probably speak to this better than I could these three guys on their team on Duke in Williamson in RJ Barrett. And it was the third guy. Reddish people are saying that could be one two three in the draft. Right. Like free NBA, ready guys. Okay. I know. I think the problem is the team they are on in Duke. I I don't know what their four through ten guys are like, I'm sure they're not that great. Maybe they are. But that's going to be the problem of beating the Cavs. But those are three NBA guys. They have one NBA ready. Scien- Williamson is largest, man. He's a man's body. That's the difference. Like, they got us. What against each other Zion will be the second heaviest player in the league when he comes into the league next year. He's got guns. He's got a thick Jek frame. But the other guys are skinny and they have to play now forty eight minutes against NBA team that is playing hard the entire time. Yeah. Not just running up and down maybe planning like Cleveland cavalier. Kevin love think about him at UCLA when he was a fatso excuse excuse me. Kevin love, but he's a big boy, he was overweight. Now, he's he's felt they've learned. I just brought it wouldn't be playing in. This is pathetic game. He's. Next one stink. It is think. It's ridiculous. Second one here. The Washington Wizards. We can move on the third one Jimmy Butler. Ooh, we can hang. We gotta talk with you about the real thing. What are we doing to hang banner? We should just hanging now. First of the year. But it up. Yeah. Stu it turns it around in the second season. Putting the wolves on the other side. And guys he let Thais Jones his teammate borrow his plane to go see Duke because Tyson was going to see price move. Now. Did he let them borrows playing ties Jones was supposed to go with Jimmy Butler? Together and Jimmy too busy can't go size. But you can take my plane. Well, that's very rented. Anyways. Well, I did want to bring real quick because he was waving the white towel literally. When he was playing the Golden State Warriors. He was on the bench, and there are a bunch of warriors fans waving white towels. And so he picked up in waved it now, what do you think that signified is that him just cheering for the opposing team or am I waiting the white towel? Listen, I don't wanna play for the Minnesota Timberwolves anymore or he wasn't thinking about any. Meaning he was just picking it up and waving. I think he's just silly Jimmy and look at me funny. What about when you start casting? I. Yeah. Okay. That's all I wanted. What about when he was playing with his hand in his pants fascinating. Those fascinating. I saw I saw one possession. What is going on? And then I saw that he cut his hand and just kind of had his hand in his pants. Maybe stop the bleeding because he cut his hand. They went over to try and stop the bleeding. I guess they of failed at that. Because he kept playing and it was still bleeding. So he was he was playing offensive and defensive. Within one down these pants. Thanksgiving, you know. Chill and the wizards. We can just quickly quick gloss over, but it's becoming almost impressive. They're two and eight they lost by nineteen to Dallas. And then lost at home by twenty three two. Okay. See and then they squeezed in a New York knick win here. The last week gave without eight. I don't know. It's amazing. That's that's all I don't think there's really much the head to head. We're having between the wolves. And the wizards really? Who's gonna who's going to run away with it? You say the wolves or head right now. What if they try to get back on traffic trade them for each other Walter Butler that would be perfect? Oh, wow. Awesome. Right fourth nominee. Let's get your take on Kyrie Irving. And when he threw the ball into the stands he was very angry at Jamal Murray who just scored forty eight points shot clock is off joe-marie decides, you know, what last possession. It's going to fire it up and try and hit fifty kyri didn't like that grab the ball Celtics lost. And he tossed that ball into the stands. Because he kept talking about it afterwards. And I'm sure he was asked about it. Yeah. So, you know, no fault. They him for answering questions. But it just seemed like the story didn't I know? It did go on for a little while we talked about it on Tuesdays drop much more to add. We'll see that's not new show new. Not a droplet Houston should be listening. I was gonna say McCullough goes for forty the other night. Did you see the end of the game? Oh, yeah. All whole lot different than Jamal Murray. Going for his fifty trying to get to fifty a little bit different. It was a shot clock. I get that day. Just ran out the clock. Right. Right. It's just so funny. We'd like just pick and choose which ones get us all anger. So and I don't care. I'm not getting angry at McCall him. I'm not angry at at at Murray. Especially when you're in front of your home floor on your home court. I love it. You're putting on a show for these people that say, no, I can't be and you don't have a guy throws the ball is awesome. Kick him the game ball. It's so funny. The reasoning for why he was mad was stupid. But throwing the ball. Exactly. Right. It's a lot better than what you know, like get into a fake fight with or pushes. You know, it's really expensive for him twenty five thousand. Yeah. I got a parking ticket for twenty five dollars once and I was pissed off at that again twenty five grand for throwing the ball park park near Piedmont park, some festival on and I couldn't get into the normal pocking. That's like a really misnamed. And then I just I just found this one place and does fine. But has I came out there for an hour. And I came back in the lady was writing up the ticket. You're trying to say here moving did. You just like, I don't know. Trying to say you can't really you can't really talk of it should've took the meter and threw it into the crowd. Don't do that to me rip this. Okay. So kyri. Yeah. Twenty five thousand that's that's a lot. And it's a point zero zero one of his salary. I'm not sure you to. 'cause I wish that in moments like that there could be like a guy that pops up like Kyrie's got the ball in his hand. He's cockpit back pop. So he's like twenty five thousand dollars. And then he's got like make the decision. It's like, you know, what? And then he doesn't. I'd be great see them decision real time. Or somebody tracking the ball. Like did somebody catch it? Yeah. I'm sure they tracked it down and Jamal Mary probably has it now. But. I got to know a lot of people don't know this. But the government puts a chip tracker and every NBA ball. Yep. I'm not supposed to tell you that. Oh, so they got it back. They know where it is a lot of people want that chip tracker for the goaltending rule. Right. It's like. It's like. Soccer. Yeah. That right there. Going to give you the goaltending real. But then they're going to be following you go it's a give and take them ball came back. It went into the Canadian Basketball Hall of fame. Most points tied most points ever for a Canadian. I know he said that on the other a new. Last one v one here, it's not a real nominee. It's a bunch of visual worst of the week nominees.

You're right. Like in the making. I'm talking about Donovan. Yeah. Yeah. I I agree. Yeah. Because I like Alexander, but he was eleventh. Yeah. I think that's still steel rain yet. It's not quite if you think he's going to be an all type player, you know, down the line. I mean. I mean. Composed. He's got he's got that. He's adjusted to the NBA pace. I think he doesn't rush.

That's fine. Let me let me stay there. Let me jump in because miles purchase at number twelve I'm sticking with the sticking with miles. Get him in the dunk contest. He's also a good basketball player. He's not just a dunker. He can shoot the three boys and establish himself as a pretty good three ball shooter. He's he's really athletic. Will he be much more than that? I think so I think he's decent willy being all NBA player. Okay. Okay. Okay. Just you got a little bit of a deeper cut. Kevin her to the Atlanta Hawks baby. Don't hurt me. I don't know. I think he'll play for probably a decade is the nineteenth pick. He can shoot the ball. And he moves better than I would've thought he he's trying to go by red Mamba, though, hair's not that read these six six seven six. Yeah. And eventually hill end up on a team that is just going to say man, just run off screens and catch shoot just watch. Kyle Korver tapes for the rest of your life. He's solid to deep cuts as well.

Rick flair a duo, the Andersons and a rising stud like Tully Blanchard mind says grizzly shark is LeBron is the star Damon McCullum as the deal and Luca Dutch as the rising star. All right.

Oh, be crazy. The life out of out of town isn't backwards. Keep your Email. That's coming in your tweets coming. Hashtag starters on Twitter. The starter is that NBA dot com through Email, Matt let's get a quick complaint in here. Resolve this come through it without anger. I think we can do this quickly. So last year, I introduce everyone of the condescending high five do you remember that? Yes. It's when you know someone under under the guise of goodwill. Tries to assert their dominance over you. By for you, an unwanted high walk by usually. Yeah. Usually at drunk, bro. You're like, I'm just getaway. So I'd like to introduce you now to the wave of false generosity. So this is where you're walking down the street. You come to a crosswalk. Let's say you take a step into the cross, which is your legal, right? That's why the crosswalk is there. Someone starts the car that has stopped. Let's say there's a stop sign. There has stopped. You take a step into the intersection? They move forward. They realize you're in the intersection, and they they give you this wave like. Come on. You know? Okay. Yeah. You go you go yuko, and you're like. No don't pretend that you're you're giving me this generous time to cross the street when it is my right across the street. Right. Right. So I would prefer if I don't know what I prefer. They do nothing. I guess back up on the rules of the road the rules of the road. How about you know, the face like if you did like a? Made a mistake. That me that's on me. I wanted that's on me. Okay. So you today. I was I mean, I notice it's a lot. But today, I was walking through the parking garage. It's in my apartment building. And I was walking past the gate. So I was in the garage. Someone was coming into the garage. There's the gate the gate was closed. I took a step to walk past the gate open. And they charged out like like, it's lemoyne's. I think that's a reference. Wow. Okay. Check with green. And then the person sees me in the middle of the, you know, quote, unquote, intersection or whatever they stop. And then they gave me the okay, you know, you can go. So hold on hold on you weren't in a crosswalk. But I'm where else am I supposed to go? That's the garage. I mean, what are we supposed to stop there for the rest of my life? Get a tiny car to drive from your normal car to the door. You can never not be in a car in a garage. We rule. All right. So just don't give the way the false generosity. Give me the my bad. Yup. Of compliance. That happens though, you slow walk. It you gotta you gotta ten your time on that crosswalk. Make him really. I lock eyes stared out. I just hate when you get into the like the game of chicken of like you've stopped because you saw the car is about to pull out. So you stop you don't wanna get hit by a car, but they stop and think. Okay. Well, no, you should go. And you're like, no, no. You just go because you're halfway out. And you get like this like, no, you knew goes go you go you walking. Yeah. I know people should be what I don't want to go there halfway through the cross then. And now, it's just makes more sense for you to move your car. Let's go you know, what I'm saying? Yeah. If they're blocking me, and I want him walk more, and I want to walk behind or in front of them. Yeah. That's true. I mean. Yeah. Yeah. But we're talking about Crosswalks where the sign is only on the ground. Right. It's only painted on the ground, and maybe a little sign, which is at like belt level. It's not those overhanging Crosswalks, right? Like any big lights? Not. It's everywhere. Test in our fine country of Canada every single crosswalk. I believe has overhanging signing like you can see I wouldn't say everyone. Well, that's why I think it's I think it's way different here because of the crosswalk. It's literally just a painted line and a little teeny sign. That's like they've tried five trying to at least in Atlanta, you're right to put in more like flashing lights a crosswalk. I pressed a button, I'm walking here. There's no respect for the walk. There's no respect for the specs for the Walker at right by my house, this, you know, the intersection I'm talking about. There's a crosswalk. It's a four-way stop. So the cars have to stop. There's a. Stop the and one out of every two times I'm walking across that crosswalk. Someone. Someone new. That's one of those weird four way stops because it's like, it's not they're not the streets. Don't match up at the corner. You know, what I mean the two streets. Do not it's like. It's like got a veer. In fact, all four stops are like on a different plane, if that makes any sense in forty chestnut this cross all right? Good complaint. No problems with that. One JD ready to fire. The punt gun chairs. I got a lot of requests for NBA TV shows. I think we've done this before. But who cares like us one from jobber ninety nine Cameron growing pain? Who's the AD show? Well, you could be anything. Okay. Any NBA TV shows like this one from Nome Schiller breaking Batty. That's a good one. Okay. Good time to get in now and start watching servic depot. Oh, what about who's the Terrence Ross? Very nice. Who? Daniel. Has such bimbos are full house. Been starters family Tyson Chandler, go. Here we owe camera and you growing pains Dirk no wings ski. Shaquille Beverly Hills nine or two and O'Neill. Ralph as in raw health Samson. The show. Family barriers. I think it would read better. When I was gonna say from Daniel DeLores, the good pacer. You want to do another tweet. Top that. No, I didn't think so. Or four thousand likes well, four and a half, correct? Have you ever been tempted to give yourself tweet of the week? Thank the army would not people have Frank. You people have said that give you sell toys lake fitting. Tell me. When she say. Do you have to win worse at the week as well that same weekend? All right. Well, then let's go right to rapid fire. Earlier this week. We saw one trailblazer fan destroy another in a savage game of battle orbs. The two guys went knocked the ball the knocker ball. One guy's helmet went flying. He's currently in the concussion protocol. But should return to action soon. What in Reno contest? Could you win JD? Well, I can't be anything to do with basketball, obviously. But Cleveland, I saw have hungry hungry. Hippos thing. Hungry hungry hippos. I want to be one of those hip. Yeah. I think that'd be great at it. Big guy. Just crash into everybody. Killing Matt I'm pretty confident I could win the baby race. Babies. They're not taking the best babies and the babies are not even going in a straight line. They get easily distracted. I think could wait. I think I could win when you have to go out sometimes for a free throw a three point on then go and do the half court shot. I think I could do it one Sean not just like women Vegas, but full of us miss. If one of us is. Yeah. All right. Dumber to camps. Interim coach Larry drew got some attention this week for a unique sideline whistling technique. Hold on a second. I forgot his unique technique. Yep. It is check the Texans. Like this. Wow. Calling him Larry Bird, so guys. Look your best animal intimidation imitation eighty well. It's it's also a bird. It's a chicken here goes. Lear. Thank you. Okay. I'll do mine. You tell me what this is. Leila could vary. No, no, farting zebra. The two pot. Okay. You have to identify these sound. As the world. Fish. Oh fish. Why buddy? Brody makes this then it's a dripping tap into a water bottle like Luckett. A dog spa ball. Dripping. And then you have to get these. Dog drinking not what? Like that. Was that is that ASMAR? That was weird. Fingers pioneer. Alexa. Greenfield was back in the news this week after Madison Square Garden planted around the sidelines. So that she could Paul her classic dipping chicken into a soda bit. Mat you love this. Tell me what's the dumbest thing you could be famous for JD. I mean, it's got to be anal. Retentive miss. I mean, how many years have we worked together in the same office? Have you ever heard me? I know I said yesterday JD the day you fun day. I retired. I think I could be famous for the hashtag sleeping in my Cup challenge. So this is where I brought in a Cup from a solo Cup or really any work mind. But that Cup on a table while you're seated and then try to. A little bit. Then you place your as much of your face as possible in the Cup. You want to apply a fair amount of pressure. So I'm going to do that. Now. He's got his head down. Okay. In the Cup. Then you go this. Sleep in. I'm in. And that's how you sleeping in my country. Because to bury your head in a Cup while seated hashtag it sleeping on my Cup challenge. And I will see it sleeping in my Cup challenge. I love it that is less than dipping chicken fingers. Send us your best sleeping. Anything very solid related people. Tweet me all the time. Like, I've got a very solid, but they potty or a wedding or this or that anytime anyone says, very solid. They send me a photo of it. Thumbs up or something like that. So I think that's what's going to be now me for the rest of my life. You thought trademarking very solid. Good because I already did. All right. That's right. The player that is hopefully another classic addition of the drop you tell us though, tell us on Twitter hash day, the starters tell us on apple if you subscribe to the show on apple podcasts.

Twenty fifteen so. I've got this down to an art science with instagram. I need to talk to you off. Line because I- instagram's like my worst one. I got into late. I don't really know what I'm doing. So maybe my fantasy question will be instagram tips. I can help you out. But again the algorithm changes in I was one of the first adapters. It gets harder harder to build on a platform. The older get so I could still share a few tips on basically some Hashtag advice and stuff like that love it. Joe Highly encouraged by the way for you guys to check me out. I was on Joe's show earlier in the week again. It's at the fantasy football counselor DOT com. We talked about running backs really from an offensive line perspective. Joe Hit me up on a bunch and then I I went from there. Joe I might. I might go with Joseph Robert for you. Is that cool? That's cool all right because we gotta Joe Doing and Joseph Robert or the counselor or whatever and what we're doing is we're talking about lessons learned from the twenty nine thousand nine hundred season that everybody needs to remember right down take notes and have top of mind going into next year when you're drafting now is when you separate the men from the boys from fantasy football perspective and so many hit you up joe you and I were texting Joseph Robert Counselor and not Joe Dolan to goofball and I'm kidding I'm kidding I loved you but everybody knows how much I love judo so anyway you and I were texting just about some of the lessons you learned one of one. One of them is to wait on wide receivers which is interesting. Tell US why well listen. The whole strategy. This year was going. Robust are be and as you see guys. There's more and more committees coming out every single year in the coaches keep using this running back by committee strategy which we as fantasy owners absolutely hate so my whole strategy. This year was kind of wait and get me canny. Golladay and he was going around is. Adp was in the fourth round. So that's what I did. I got golladay. One was a couple of wide receivers later on guys a courtroom Sutton and it turns out they did well now if you look at some of the guys who were drafted in the first round guys like Davante Adams Finish Twenty second amongst wide receivers and you see guys like Odell who I warned you about three years in a row with Odell be careful I go. I know injuries. Play a part of this and stuff like that but sometimes I just feel. It's most of the time. Actually I feel that. It's very important to go robust rb early on which we'll talk about later. That's another point. I want to get on yet definitely wait on wide receiver. There's a ton adept at wide receiver. And there's just way more way more valid like volume at wide receiver more and more of them to go around Hijo. It's Joe how're you doing? Nice to meet. Nice to meet you on here. I'm sure you're well aware just like me. Whenever you're in a public place being named Joe is not the best thing in the world like you hear your name getting yelled fourteen different directions and most of the time. It's nobody who is trying to talk to you. But I'm I want to kind of follow up on what you were just saying because I think it's interesting and we. What one thing. We don't want to do here when we're when we're falling into fantasy analysis and lessons learned and all that we definitely don't WanNa fall into the gambler's fallacy and Gambler's Fallacy of course being that well if tales come up five times in a row that means heads is do we don't we don't WanNa fall into that because although things even out over time. That doesn't necessarily predict anything for one outcome. But I did notice this season and this goes back to your your robust running back. The kind of approach. This was this is my eleventh year in the fantasy industry and this was the single worst year in my opinion and I think this is pretty much verifiable. This was the single worst year for running backs off the waiver. Wire like if you look at the top thirty P. P. R. Running BACK FINISHERS. The first one who really didn't have an ADP or really didn't have an ADP. That was registrable on that list and total points is rain moster all the way down at rb. Twenty six. My question to you is do you think. That's a trend. That's going to continue going forward where these running backs who come off. The waiver wire really aren't as or as available as they've been in past and if that isn't the case do you think that might Maybe hurt your strategy a little bit. Yeah I mean there's always running back emerging one of the strategies. I've always implemented as go on and get those rookie. Running backs could break out. Now I've hidden. I've swung and missed a few times but I usually get it pretty much every year. I struck out on raw John's last year this year. I'm David Montgomery. I kind of went higher on his. Adp You're always looking for these guys to break out. So I have a strategy called the cutty system and it's called consistency upside derby depth. In Youth I try to draft players that fit that criteria. Are they consistent from years before do they have upside? How younger they saw. It's just a formula and you gotTa Balance Your roster with these players. So yeah I mean guys like remastered could start getting sniped a little bit earlier and drafts and maybe that strategy of trying to get these sleepers and essential breakouts could get a little bit. Messed up with people becoming more consciously aware of this process but yeah mean there's no guarantee that the top five finishes in this. You're going to finish top five again. That's kind of what I've always lived on. I never caught like you know the mainstream consensus always copy and paste. That's one thing I'm against and Yeah I mean Rahim monsters could be popping up every single year another thought you had Joseph Robert The counselor. The fantasy football counts. That's what people WANNA go check out anyway so the fantasy football counselor is to that. There's no copy past copy and paste rankings that things change meaning just because of how guys finish last year. The people that go into next year thinking like those should be the rankings are misguided NYGARD with that well. This is what I've kind of been changing the game. Essentially I'm I'm very hard headed. I'm stubborn and I've been kind of a bit of the outlier for this. Because I've been trying to set new trends right and the thing I go is get harped on is like oh how could you put that guy so high and your? Adp How could you? You're crazy. How del out of your top ten. You're nuts counselor. Screw you get. Outta here and I'm getting a lot of heat from the industry but I don't care because I'm trendsetter and I have the lion mentality and I go in there and I'm a little aggressive but the thing is sometimes I win or lose but I was balanced my Rostro at the end of those. At the end of the day I went. I went a lot of my colleagues. I don't want them all. No one's perfect a lot of the subjective but I do a lot of winning so again. It's just this mentality this kind of an old school mentality like Ok. These top finishers. Okay now we gotta draft them again in the top ten again. Because they've finished on top. It never works out like that and I'm just trying to get the industry to switch their mindset and be a little more open minded and not be so strict and so like I got a draft. Odell in the first round or I got to drive this guy because he finished first so. That's kind of one thing. I'm getting a lot of resistance from from from fans in the industries because I'm really trying to set this trend that you gotta keep an open mind you really want Joe to to focus on these a robust. Rb's keeping an open mind. And I think one of the players who are the industry was keeping an open mind on this past season was David Johnson. And you know He. He was her. The offense was terrible in two thousand eighteen. Under Steve Wilks and Mike McCoy and whoever the hell else they I call them plays. They're Byron left. Which was there and I think. A lot of people gave him the benefit of the doubt. They said hey look bad offense. We know what he can do Cliff kings varies coming in. They're going to have a rookie quarterback they're going to improve all across the board and then David Johnson did end up. Being one of the biggest bus and fantasy football. My question to you is deep key. Fit the quote unquote robust our B Strategy that you have because he certainly fit mine I thought he was going to. I thought he was going to break out. Or or re break out in the new offense and he ended up really hurting me. How do you how do you avoid potential? Landmines like that and was David Johnson. A landmine that you really ran into. Yeah I mean I kind of when I'm wrong. I try to hold myself accountable for everything I say and this was a guy I actually had I overall and this is what I'm getting a lot of heat from from my fans and they're really came down on me hard this year. Not I'll take it. You Know David Johnson was a guy. I mean. Twenty Sixteen Amazing Year twenty overall touchdowns. I met him at his house. Who's endorsing one of my brands? Years ago when I came up with a frame prior to podcast and it was like a fantasy league price. I kinda got rid of that brand but yeah met him. He's got amazing. Work Ethic he's dealt with haters is entire life. He's overcome that adversity. I mean just a typical all American athlete is phenomenal. And I thought he'd come out and have a great year so I was drafted because he was because I was doing a lot. I do a lot of mock drafts and he was always coming off at least around fifty six right so I kept going second or third or fourth. I was always grabbing David. Johnson I was calm bowling him with Derrick Henry. I was one of the guys that had David. Derrick Henry higher than a lot of people can us all out of the off season stuff and I saw his desperation. He had to win right. He had to do something this year. Sars Combo Him with him David Johnson and that was going Derrick Kennedy and I was going with like a Josh Jacobs and the third so I always had myself backed up but yeah I I fell in the trap with David Johnson and I gotta say this was completely unforseeable and you can see me. Get an angry here because I'm extremely passionate about fantasy football and when I see a workhorse running back like David Johnson get benched for and I know he looked a little sluggish. Sometimes I get it but he was just basically pushed to the side and said Hey. Let's bring in Kenyan drake a guy who's had years to wow us and we weren't wowed by him in Miami. Let's bring him stardom over our starter. I've never seen anything like this that I can remember. I don't know about you guys. Yeah it's interesting. I will say this you know. I saw run counselor against the box where I I was very concerned for David. I'm a big fan of his. I've talked to him multiple times. I also any. Fcs Guy that becomes a star. I root for Joe. Dolan feels the same way we root for running backs to get paid because we just know how hard the position is. How hard is to get paid? It is interesting to note that today. Steve Crime said we will not cutting David. Johnson is not an option because of the dead money and what it would do their cap. So I'll be curious to see what happens there. I will say this though in my experience. New Regimes New coaching staffs really. Don't care about what the guy did before. And that's why I think Kingsbury was willing to move on to Kenyan drake as quickly as he did. He just doesn't they don't have really any loyalty. And you said earlier in the show live by robust running back and I and I wanted you to expand upon that as to what you mean by that. I think there's just a lot of volatility at that position. And this is the position where we're quarterbacks kind of what you see for the most part is what you get. You've seen guys with consistent numbers throughout the years guys putting up those numbers and you see that every single year the trends was running back. So there's a lot more injuries. A lot of more volatility committees happen. And you're not getting that consistency. I mean you get it with a couple of players but it's very volatile and I always want to get myself backed up. I'm obsessed with getting a running back. That's going to get volume. I look at that so when I go into my data here and I have this little analytics to I. I look at attempts I want. I'm obsessed with volume so as soon as I get a running back. Who's got a touch on this ordered from him. I will throw stuff at my TV if my fantasy team is on the line. So I WANNA make sure I- Combo it with like get that top five workhorse running backs and then get a guy like a deer cutting for this past year. I'm using example. GotTa who's kind of in the league experienced and they could have that upsides and then I always get myself two or three rookies. That are a position to succeed this past year. Guy Like Josh Jacobs and then get a key like I like to have three to five running backs on my team because I wanNA optimize that position my position with the guy that's going to get the full volume. That is something that I'm very very particular about in my fantasy team. We'll just if you just mentioned also you don't copy pace the leaderboards from the previous year. I feel like that self evident but still I think a lot of people do fall into that trap. So if you're looking at these quote unquote robust. Rb's and you'RE GONNA look at Christian McCaffrey. And you'RE GONNA look at Saquon Barkley and you're going to look at Ezekiel Elliott and Alvin Cook. And the guys who finished towards the top of the board this year but in order to really be successful in twenty twenty you need to find the guys who are the next robust. Rb's and I know we're just sitting here in February and there is plenty of time to break this down but best drafts are starting up already. Who are the guys who are already in the league that you think could be taking that step towards becoming the first round picks of the future? I love that question. There's a couple of guys that I'm looking at right now. I've got my list here in front of you. That's a great question. I'm going to name some names here and you guys could pave the way in here now. These guys again. It's toll hit or miss but I think you're going to get him for value and you combine them in the robust RB strategy. But I'm looking here. I'm seeing if he gets volume. If that's a huge huge F is miles sanders. Sanders has that upside came alive. Near the end of the season we collaborate on this. If you want a David Montgomery if nagy pulls his head out of his ass and says hey man this guy is going to be my three down Workhorse running back. They improve the old line as me and Ross were talking about I think is all I needs to get improved. Scrap to Rico and I'm a lot of people like the guy can't even catch a by pass catching running back. Catch a damn ball. You Know David Montgomery. Is Your Guy. Believe an Josh Jacobs and other guy. No he did well this year. I think you could definitely step up his upcoming season other guys. I mean Devon Single Terry we got to see. I don't know if he's fits the prototypical running back position to be that workhorse. Running back but if they believe with Enam. That's another guy If Damian Williams not a guy I was not high on this past year he could step up this season again if they believe in him and make him that three down running back for another guy position if Belvin gets shipped off if he is the main guy. The don't bring anyone else. And so those are a couple of names maybe even drake as well but anyone of these guys could be a top four running back next year and follow up potentially here gain Williams. I think Rawson I are probably going to be talking about him all off season. Because the fascinating thing about Damian Williams was if you were down on him in twenty nine hundred and it sounds like you were yes you it kind of paid off. However towards the end of the season he was back to being the League winner. He was at the end of twenty eighteen. So what I see from Damian Williams is really interesting because we are asking the same exact questions about him heading into twenty twenty that we were asking heading into twenty nineteen because he's somebody who had a fantastic close to the season. He had a great playoff run but he didn't put it together for the whole season and now and this is a question I have for you. Do you think the chiefs are just not sold on him at all. Or are they gonNA come into two thousand twenty and say you know what we made a mistake going out and signing with Shawn McCoy? We should've rolled with this guy from the start. He's so fascinating because the analysis in my opinion is exactly the same as it was last year. I'm not sold on. Damian was being the full true horse workhorse running back he sucked in Miami. And I think that's basically is on Miami. You'd never got the opportunity and it was Miami and a lot of running back to do well there in the past couple of years but one thing that turns me off about him is he doesn't really run up the middle. He doesn't get a lot of rushing yards. That's what he gets. A little pitcher to the outside runs the outside catches a few balls and he's shown a little bit of sign of injury here. Can you handle a full workload and again all avid saying? I may have said this before but years to me and I'm not wowed he had like again four years or three to four years did nothing comes in now and I think he's a product again of that offense Rosina we're talking about setting. It's the offense. It's making him as good as he is. And that's I think what it is. I think they definitely need to add depth at that position. I Darwin Thompson was a guy I thought would have got more opportunity. He didn't I know he's a little small. Maybe the pass protection sucks there. But I'm not sold on him again but the ceiling is there if he's the main guy they don't bring anyone else in is we're we're buying into you. There's definitely a ceiling there but again. Very one dimensional. Do the outside pitch. And that's all I'm seeing. I'm not excited. You know what I'm not excited about. Joseph Robert People that don't wear nice underwear.

I WANNA feast on your next lesson. Fantasy Football Councilor Joseph Robert and that is to wait on quarterback. Now we all know this. We all say this. We all hear this all the time. I guess my question is if you're in a league with a bunch of people that know what they're doing and everybody's waiting. When is it value to get mahomes or does Shawn Watson or I know? Lamar Jackson is probably his own animal. Right okay I want to make this clear on this waiting on the quarterback. Now you don't WanNa wait too long. One thing that I've always lived by is anchoring saying I kind of say in my sixty round draft solution. Is You got to anchor your team with an ace quarterback and as we said before you know with quarterbacks a trans are a little easier to spot you can kind of see you know couple years before that. This guy did well this year this year that year. So I like to anchor my team with a quarterback. How fast can I get that quarterback? That's something I get a feel from during during mock drafts. Now I want to clarify. You can wait but I'm saying do not overpay. Hey now I did not pay for pantyhose in the Third Round. I was too busy. Drafting my third running back at that point. So you gotta find that sweet spot to get that ACE quarterback but get them at the right time without overpaying. Ideally like to get my quarterback in and around the fifth round and. I'm still going to get myself an anchor myself with a guy that's going to perform a Russell Wilson a guy that I can get get it. Put Me up around twenty points. Every game almost guaranteed. I hate volatile quarterbacks. I hate guys give me like five points one game and forty the next. I'm trying to find the most consistent guy quarterback I can plug in each week and one more rule of thumb adhere it. A two quarterback league always tried to get a third quarterback on the bench. Because I've been screwed into quarterback leagues because if you're starting to quarterbacks and your quarterback gets injured nor the quarterback to get and a one quarterback league always get a backup quarterback another thing that I've lived by to cover myself if not only if the for by weeks but if the quarterback you have this around doesn't perform there's a there's a whole lot of knowledge. I just Kinda shut up you guys on my strategy for quarterbacks. Well here's here's another question that that that people are going to have people are going to say. Look Lamar Jackson. I want my fantasy championship because of him. Why shouldn't I draft him in the first or the second round? Well you always have to go back to pointing out the people that will yeah. Lamar Jackson obviously first foremost he was the NFL MVP. Not Trying to take anything away from them He. He put up massive numbers but the point is he was available in the eighth ninth and tenth rounds of fantasy football drafts so it he helped you win championships while by extension. So did the players that you picked earlier where maybe you would have picked Lamar Jackson in two thousand twenty so the question now becomes much like the running back question that I asked you which quarterback who may be disappointed or have it broken out yet in two thousand nineteen are going to be available in the eighth ninth and tenth rounds like Lamar Jackson was in two thousand nineteen. Like Patrick. Mahomes wasn't twenty eighteen. Who might jump to the top of that Board in two thousand twenty another great question here? And we're we could talk about Lamar Jackson. Why he may decline the season number one he had a cinderella a year and I just would not invest. I'm going to go in the first or second round. But that's a side tangent here to answer your question. There's a couple of quarterbacks could emerge and really start shining and get to the top five top ten and I know column. Adp is going to be a little bit higher this year because we see the outside by Keiler is a guy and other guy could be. Daniel Jones Gardner. Men's shoe but again. A lot is predicate on these guys getting weapons around. I'm really high on Josh Allen. Going into the season I think he needs a good receiver. But also gotta look at some of the rookie quarterbacks coming in now not excited about rookie quarterbacks coming in but if they're put into the right situation maybe there could be a rookie quarterback look at but. I don't decide that until after the draft. How can how everything falls into place? In how the depth chart settle but again just to answer that question it could be. That's a tough one. Maybe Daniel Jones if that aligns improved but right now. I'm not too excited about anybody. I'm still anchoring myself with a quarterback and maybe getting Jones later on. I like it all right. The last one we have for you is coaches now. I think one of them's probably Kingsbury. Because you're not happy about the David Johnson thing. I get it any other. Coach is that you dislike so much that it would affect your draft status of certain players man. I just had a lot of stock and David Johnson David Montgomery so this may be a little bit biased towards my players but nagy and Kingsbury are not people. I WANNA see on the street I have. I have a word Saito to those guys. I tell him to pull their head out of their asses again. David Johnson. I think he's he's that top five running back. He's got that talent. He's built like a prototypical running back he catches Iran's yes he's not as explosive as drake and I get that Kingsbury wants to make that offense as he wants to filter out all the guys that weren't part of his system and I get it but it just sucks man what he did to David Johnson again. No respect no integrity there. It really pissed me off and then Nagy as well bring in Cohen on second down and just do some crazy plays where they could have ran the ball and just not because again montgomery can catch the ball he can catch the ball better than than to Rico. And he's built better than to recall and he can break tackles recall he can run up the middle to recall the recall in there. Why don't you play your better running back? It's like having a Lamborghini in your inner parking lot and you're driving. The you know the the old Chevy I mean. Come on Man. Pull your head out of your ass. So those are two coaches that need a piece of my mind for fantasy. One more thing that I should go on the flip side to get to get Europe blood pressure down before we end the show. Some who are some of the coaches we know about. Sean Payton Andy Reid. Who some of the coaches that you actually like investing in for fantasy. Maybe some guys who aren't as obvious you know what when it comes to coach the I do like read and stuff like that. But I don't really care about coaches all I care about his fantasy production and that's the bottom line. Now I do appreciate what Garrett did with Zeke and just to kind of put a summary on this is I like coaches that believe in their workhorse running backs that give that opportunity. I believe I see the town. I believe in them. And I'M NOT GONNA put in some guy who has underperformed for years ahead of my starter. I like the guys again. Garrett did a good job with Zeke. He's a good example of that. Let's go with that. Let's go with that. I think that's my favorite coach. I like it. I like it Jason Garrett Princeton Guy There you go Joseph Robert Oh you want to check out his show. Fantasy football counselor. You want to check him out on instagram. Because he's going to tell me how to get some more instagram people. Where're you from by the way? Joe I'm actually from the Northeast as you say so. I've actually born and raised in the Toronto area but I usually hang out in the Buffalo New York area so that's pretty much my location so hover between Buffalo area and Toronto. Yeah I could tell you I could tell you were Canadian. That's why I was asking. When you said northeast I was gonNA say like Nova Scotia Cow. How far northeast?

GSMC Baseball Podcast Episode 214: Mookie gets PAID, Whats up with the Jays, MLB Power Rankings and Preseason Awards

"The. Golden State concepts baseball PODCASTS. We cover everything majorly from sprint tree. The World Series got your favorite club cover from new. York to Boston to La. vix Is the Golden State media concepts baseball podcast? IS A. All right, thank you for tuning in to the G. S. MCC. Baseball podcast brought to you by the G. S. M. C. podcast network. I am your host Evan Worley happy Friday to all of you. I hope you're enjoying the start of your weekend. I won't really be able to do anything this upcoming weekend because of finishing up packing my apartment, getting ready for the move down to Dallas Texas by the end of next week. So all I'm going to be doing is packing my apartment watching baseball and recording this podcast so. That's my weekend. I hope yours is a little bit more a little bit more exciting, but. It's going to be more exciting because baseball's back. We have basketball back. We have hockey on the way sports or back, and that's all that matters people but. I am recording this. On Thursday at one PM. Central Time So. I have not seen. The night's games yet. I've not seen the opening games between Cole, ensure Zor but. I'm sure they were incredible. You got sure Zor. You got coal. You Got Kershaw and Cueto. Can you, ask for. What a great opening day for Baseball! What a great opening day for all of us going back looking on the scrimmages in everything the dodgers looked. You know as as unstoppable as always scrimmages. Just dismantling the D backs and the. Angels. I'm sure we all expect them to do the same thing throughout the season. I expect I expect around forty wins. I was saying around forty winds from the dodgers more than forty at least I would say. Gimme about forty four wins especially. Since they showed. Some, Rather good bullpen pieces. I'M NOT GONNA lie knocking to lie to you. I don't really like Jose Arenas that much, but you know. Maybe they can put them back. Put Him back in the bullpen and throw in this rookie pitcher bruiser Grad rural that they got from the twins in the Majeida and rich healed rich hill deal. MINNESOTA. What are you guys doing like? This guy had ninety nine mile an hour fastball with a ton of movement in addition to. A wipeout slider. Like, this is like elite stuff to go along with his elite name. What you? Why would you give that up? Yeah, he had some arm troubles in the past. A lot of people have arm troubles in the past like Tommy. John is seemed like everybody gets Tommy John after a couple of seasons. You throw over one hundred miles an hour with wiccan movement on it like you're going to get Tommy. John's sooner or later like that's just how the game goes now. Like you can't just give up on that type of guy that that's a franchise guy. That's number one guy. If Jose Barrios If Jose various figures out how to knock you up six runs after one hundred pitches You know he could. He could stay the number one and. Number two, but. That's just how it goes now brought Grad role. Is a potential number one with. A team that he could end up being number. Three. That's just that's just not even fair and then. You know you look at A. They also got blake training. Everybody knows blake trying. It's going to be really great coming out of the bullpen and he just. He looked like he was right back to. Write back to form You know. One thing that also was great about this is. The upcoming prospects again. I'm a huge fan of seeing. The are common upcoming prospects excel, and if you're anything like me and this is going to be a great season. You know. The dodgers have so many prospects as so many good players that the. Leader, the favorite for rookie of the year Gavin Lux didn't even make the starting lineup. Look the starting opening day, roster Davin Lux's not even on it, and he is the favorite for the NFL rookie year. On now I will get into who my favorite for rookie of the year is going to be later in the show. That's going to be around our fourth segment, but. That's crazy to think about. Like, they're just they're. They're just that stacked and they brought up another couple of guys. Who just seamlessly fit in and they're going to. It's going to be the the dodgers always have like two or three random prospects that just come up and spark this. Insane win streak. Just hitting walk off. tators left and right and. You know this year. Even though it's only sixty games, it does not look any different. Man another thing that's great about this baseball season is I. Get that The NBA's backs were. This change a little bit, but the ratings on baseball were up like. So, so so much, I don't have the actual numbers in front of me, but everything that I've been reading is that we're so starving for sports that. People who don't care about baseball are into baseball now, and it's amazing to see that I'm so stoked about hearing. Like, so many more people actually care of obeys ball now, and it's really fun to see and you know this is going to be a very exciting season as I've been saying for the past few weeks. You know. Market Yeah, so that's GONNA. Be Fun to see how that goes. some other random news Marcus stroman is going to be out for the start of the season with a muscle tear in his calf. That's giant blow. That is a giant below for the mets now. The mets! They had their first two starters were going to be degrom and Stroman at in their backs. Three were were they were looking a little shaky at the end of the the end of the rotation. So now, you know they don't have syndergaard. They don't have marcus stroman like their head of their pack is Jacob degrom, but now it's you know Stephen Matt's Michael Walker. Don't know. I. Don't know if that's going to be able to hold up. They're able to. If they're able to keep up in the NFC, east, whilst Romans gone, they have solid chance of getting back into the race, but if they fall off to a slow lead. Or Slow Star it is going to be. It's going to be hard for them to make up. It's going to be. It's GonNa. Be Interesting to say the least. You're going to have to keep an eye on the mets during the start at the. Another thing is. You know. I, actually kind of feel like. I want to buy one of these cardboard cutouts want to buy one of these cardboard cutouts and I WANNA put myself. Doing some like dress. Crazy. Dress. Like? Liberace Kinda and putting myself behind the tarps in the outfield. So just so the these these TV cameras are going to be like men. WHO's this guy who paid for them? And then they zoom in. And it's just me looking dumb out in right field behind the tarps. and. Seeing what these guys have to say I want to see if they can make this funny I just want to see. Oh, the MLB would. would react you know. Maybe get a little action bubble of the mouse and man. It's lonely out here or something I don't know. I think that'd be pretty funny. Let me know if guys aren't thinking. Let me, let me know if you guys think it's funny idea on twitter. Just tag the GSFC baseball show and be like. Hey, you need to do that or that is the dumbest idea I've ever heard either way I mean. Hey, it's something to do if you got the money like. Might as well spend too and I'm like a Sunday night game I think that'd be hilarious. So! Let's get into the biggest news. I would say of the last few days. mookie Betts got. APPEA- A. I. D.. Paid. And it is an insane contract. It's a twelve year three hundred sixty five million dollar extension, and it will total to thirteen years three, hundred and ninety two million. My goodness, that is a ridiculous contract I'm never ever ever been a fan of paying somebody thirty eight years and older, thirty million dollars, a season and I. Don't think ever works out unless you're you know Berry bonds and well. We all know what he was doing at the time. So I'm not a really big fan. I know that MU I. I. Know the Buki Smart. And I can already guests. How he structured this deal he is going to once. He hits around thirty, six, thirty seven, and he gets towards the end of his career he is going to. What I. What is that term? You know he's going to delay the payments and he's GonNa Bobby Bonilla it. Because now if you think about it, Say, he takes. Let's say thirteen million for three hundred thirteen years three, hundred, ninety, two quick math here, let's see what is the average annual value on that three ninety-two divided thirteen. That's thirty million thirty million a year, so say in the last three years of his deal. He you know just sends it back. Just goes like all right last three years. You Know I. Have All this money saved up. My other investments can live off you know. Let's Bobby Bonilla. This and you know take about two to three million dollars a year starting, you know. Five years from now, so he would end up. Ninety million by the age of. Pushes it back five years? That's forty five. Ninety million at forty five at if he takes three year for the rest for the rest of the duration of the contract for the money that he got paid. That dude's getting paid three million dollars a year by the dodgers until he is seventy five years old. That is. Re. will is but. It's smart. Do Your thing Mookie I'm all for the F- like I'm all for the players. Just sticking it to the owners and being like. Hey, you're. I know great, but you're going to pay me until around seventy five years old. Who would not want that? You know you. Put out the numbers on the field. You do all this stuff. You Save Your money correctly while you have all this money three. I mean that's almost a half billion dollars. With all the other investments your a billionaire by the time you're fifty like that's. That's insane to think about and. It's crazy to see that the. Baseball players like the players. Sooner or later, you know by the time in like twenty twenty five years from now. Players are going to own teams, and they're just going to need a group of like three guys. Because have such big contracts like if you would've told anybody that ten years ago fifteen years ago. You would be crazy. People would look at you dumb. An ownership group of two teams of two players. Cave, probably by a team by now. They I don't I don't think anybody would believe you. I wouldn't believe you. I would never think that the money was going to be like that. So I mean, that's. That's insane, but I mean for dodger fans. You got to think about that like. You really want your team. Paying a guy for thirty years after he retired I. Mean Look at it this way. Prince fielder is only thirty six. He's a highest paid slugger this year. Like what if movie bets were to go down with an injury? You Know God forbid, but if he goes down with the injury at the age of thirty four. You're paying for six more years. At and so six years one hundred, eighty million. And if he pushes that off, it gets paid forever you get about. Four years five years MOOKIE BETTS! Six years. I don't know I don't know I. Don't like that I personally don't like the ideal. I think that it's. Like too much money, but I'm thinking owner. If I was a player, he's worth every single frigging penny especially if he can bring that ever elusive title back to Los Angeles if he can bring the title back to Los Angeles for the first time since the eighties. He's worth it. Pay Him. His kids are eighty years old. Do that. That seems perfect. But if he doesn't, this is going to be a huge huge huge flop for the dodgers. And it's going to be pretty sad. Already so I am going to take a quick break, and I will be right back to speak on the Toronto Blue Jays stadium situation. This is getting more and more messy by the moment. I will be right back. This is your ultimate staffer for everything sports, the golden state media, concepts or podcast should I say more from the NFL Melby. The NBA to M Eh. It's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports podcast listen. All right everybody we are back. We just jumped right into the MOOKIE. Do and let's move onto the next developing story, which seems to be a lot weirder. Expected the Toronto Blue Jays like we said like we broke last week. You know they won't be able to play their home games in Toronto this year. Because the Canadian Canada's government doesn't think it's safe for the players, it'd be traveling back and forth from the United States. You know with the coronavirus pandemic. They've they've done a pretty good job of flattening the curve and they WANNA keep it that way. Can't blame them for that at all and. With the United States we've been. Kinda hit the hardest. We're yeah. We have some places that are still going back into phase one lockdown and we don't know there's still a ton of question marks about what's happening So. It was thought that. They were GONNA go to. You know the teams trink Spring Training Facility in? Done in Florida which you know they're. They're still thinking about doing. They still have a chance of playing there but it is. A complete hotspot for the virus which could potentially. Cause problems for their teams. and. You know it's. I think they don't want to do with more because it's. It's more of a travel. Like when they play. They're more. They're more north. They don't really have to travel that far. You only really had to go south for you. Know the braves and the the braves in the Marlins like that's pretty much. The braves marlins rays. And everything else like it's just straight up north so the majority of their games they would have to travel a whole lot to play those games, and you know amongst being in the center of a hot spot. That's I. Don't think that's what they wanNA. Do and they want to. You know find a spot. That's more north they said that they are still looking into sale field in Buffalo New York home their AAA affiliate, but they said before that there you know the facilities aren't good enough. To support their decision because you know with pandemic. They want. They want more space between the lockers and you know the. The facilities there keep you know it's very tight quarters, so it's not looking like it's going to be Buffalo. It might because they're saying that they're going to make the luxury boxes more More you know. Turn those into locker rooms, but Even with that like you would probably I'm. Completely guessing, but I figured you would have to put probably two to three players in a luxury suite I don't know how big the luxury suites are for AAA affiliated team. I've never been to a AAA game, but I'm sure that it. It probably isn't going to help them at all with with You know the the safety regulations. Who knows, that is still an option. They were thinking about going to PNC park. The home of the Pittsburgh Pirates but the state of Pennsylvania. said that said. No they're like. No, we're not. We're not bringing people in. They said that you know we're not going to bring outsiders into the state. We don't want to you know. We. Don't want you know outsiders to affect our people. and. May Wire. People hate on the J. so much like you just gotTa let the guys play. I don't think that it's that I mean me personally I. Get I get their reasoning. Truly do, but I just don't understand. You know these guys are getting tested like. Daily. Life if They're making it so that. These guys are the safest everybody you know. If you catch the corona, Var obviously. With we only really have basketball and soccer and soccer's doing great basketball's doing great, but they're all playing in one little area. They're playing in a bubble. These guys are still traveling all over the world, so we'll. We'll have to see how that goes, but. I. Mean here's what. Here's what Rachel Wien said. The State Secretary of Health to add travelers to the region for any reason including four professional sports, events, risks, residents, visitors and members of bowl teams. We know that this is we know that virus does not discriminate, and we can even make professional athletes very sick. We are committed to protecting the health and well-being of Pennsylvania's. Yeah Yeah, you know you can't. You can't argue with that. You can't argue with that at all, but what my thing is is it's like these guys aren't tourists. Go to the hotel. They stay in the hotel. They get room. You know room service dropped off outside their rooms, and then they go to the field. Go play. Sports Berko played baseball, and then they come back to their hotel rooms. To get checked again to see you know all this kind of stuff so. I mean I truly understand where they're coming from? But still that's kind of I. Don't know I feel like that's Kinda shaky response. But you know it's hey, it's their decision ultimately. We will see you know it's. It is nice to see. That, they aren't giving into the temptation of money. Because you know, they could like the Pittsburgh. Pirates can make a lot of revenue from. Tarp sponsors and you know people buying the cutouts like you know if the Toronto Blue Jays game in the morning, and the pirates are at home also and have a game at night. You know that's double. The AD revenue. That's double. Double the. Double the cardboard cutouts because I'm sure that the Pittsburgh pirates are gonna be taking some of that I mean they can't just I. Don't think they're just lending it out there. You know they're stadiums just to take zero percent cut. I, feel you know they're going to get a little bit of that, so it's nice to see. That you know they aren't really just. Say Hey. You know we're going to take the money regardless so. You got like everybody in pens like Pittsburgh. Buyer beware, you know it's. It's nice that they're sticking by their morals. YOU KNOW TORONTO? They begin the season in Tampa Bay. On Friday and their first home game is going to be July twenty nine against the defending champion. Washington nationals they're you know they're still? Word is that they might you know. Be The home team. In the other team stadium like they might have one hundred percent road games this year, and you know just put on the White Jersey. Put on the home team uniform even though they're in. Washington which. which would be really weird? I don't know if I would. I don't know if I would you know? If I would like that. I mean I get if it's like one hundred percent road games, but I mean if you're going to be playing in a row, teams stadium, anyways. Might as well just consider it a road game, I mean. If, there's no fans. There's no real like home field advantage in so why would playing in Buffalo? Mean like. Oh. Yeah, you have to wear a Home Jersey. You're in Buffalo. Like might as well just be like. Hey, like these guys have. Major League venues. They have like they have the space they have you know everything that's needed for. You know player safety. Might as well just go in there and just let them. Let them. Use it and just say like hey. I get. This is a game, but you know we're just. We're just GONNA. Go play this home i. think that's the best way to do it because it will actually. I mean it's a lot. It's A. A ton of wearing of wear and tear. On the Toronto, on the Blue Jays, but I mean. It saves the other teams. From from. Hampton to pick up travel to to this new area. You know having to do all this other stuff. It will save you know the majority of the teams, and you just have to do a little bit more accommodating for the Blue Jays. I don't see how that could. That code or you know would be that big of an issue. You know. Like I said they could. They could go back to Florida and they do have a time to do that, but. That's just so much. Traveling I got so much traveling if they're able to go. Maybe I. Don't know why they wouldn't try and like split with the mets. Why, not try and you know just dive into city field and be like. Hey, whenever you guys aren't using it can. Can we use it for our home games because? There's two cities right there where they won't have to travel very far like like travel at all. You know they play their games in New York. They're going to have. Two teams that they don't even have to travel for for the Yankees and the mets because they're going to have to play him. anyways Philadelphia's only. A two hour drive away. That's not that big of a deal. You Know Boston's. What about three hours out of New York? I've never been there, but I mean. It's not something for. Baltimore's not that far away like you're smack DAB in the center. And, it would have. All the accommodations it wouldn't you wouldn't have to. Change out like luxury suites and all that for. For. Locker rooms and stuff like that. I mean I just I just feel like. Why wouldn't you try and plant yourself in the middle of new? York inside of a Major League clubhouse. Buffalo just seems a little bit out of the way I just. Don't I just don't know I? Just don't see I mean. Even then if you wanna go even lower like why not go to Baltimore. I mean Baltimore needs the money anyways like they're not getting. Stands because they're not playing great baseball I mean. Try and be like hey, if we can use camden yards. When you aren't using it. We'll give you twenty five thirty percent of the revenues that we make from the tarps and the cardboard cutouts, and you know, get people in because people are GonNa Watch the Blue Jays. By they are incredibly fun team. I don't know if anybody watched the Blue Jays red sox over the weekend, but you know you had. vladi junior hit that. All the way to Freak in Europe. But he's Samak that hanging curveball. And then you know you have Boba. Shit making incredible place at shortstop. It's like. People are people are diving in? They are watching the Toronto Blue Jays, and you know if you get these guys to Baltimore. And say here's some extra revenues. Just let us. Borrow the fuel for a little bit. I. Don't see a problem with any of that. I think that is a hell of an idea and you know I just think that. You know why not? An you know what's what's the worst could happen. It works for Baltimore. They get some more money. It works for the Blue Jays. They don't have to travel as much. You know they can go out and do. Whatever they want. You know they it saves. It saves the wear and tear on the young guys. It keeps is probably GONNA. Keep them a lot healthier. Throughout the season, so we as fans are going to be able to see the young guys play a lot more because you know. There's GonNa be a lot less wear and tear. It's going to be allies Croghan. They're going to perform better. I think it's a win. Win For Baseball I. Think IT'S A win. Win for the Blue Jays on a thing as a win win for the oriels. Let's get. The Toronto Blue Jays. In to Camden yards MLB do the right thing already I will be taking another quick break and we'll be right back talking about bleacher report's. Top Ten in the power rankings. This was weird. I don't know if I agree with. Pretty much any of this, but I will go into that in a second, but for now I will be right back.

I think it's just right right before the season comes out or right as the season started, I should say GonNa in this tomorrow, Wall hop into the preseason awards. Favorites I'm going to go through the. MVP's. Cy Youngs and rookie of the year awards Those are the ones that are you know the most prominent in sports? This sport I should say so I'm just going to be breaking down those three. No need to go for silver slugger gold gloves. That's going to take way too long, but before we do all that. I'm going to be breaking down the bleacher. report's top ten in the power rankings You know I don't really expect a lot from bleacher report and they never really give me enough to change my mind. So a lot of a lot of stuff, I don't really agree with and there's some things that I don't really agree with on this list, and let's get right. Excuse me into it so. At number ten we have the Philadelphia phillies. Now. The Philadelphia Phillies. I. Don't put them at number ten because you don't know how they are going to act. With a new coach Joe, Girardi. They didn't really pan out last year granted. They did have a ton of injuries. You know their starting rotation got a little got a little injured in a down year from Aaron Nola You know they got. They got injured in the back into the Bullpen David Robertson did not pan how very well and then he got hurt. But you know they did have a year GEL. You know. They got JT Mutoko. They got you know for another year. They got bryce Harper for another year. Andrew mccutchen back like they got a ton of guys that are ready to go out and play. Can they put it all together? Maybe Joe. Girardi is guy. That's ready to you know. Grab this team by the horns. And push them to where they need to be. But we don't really know that yet. I would put them lower on the list. Mainly because there are too many question marks surrounding the t the team, there are too many question marks, and you know, I don't think. I don't think you. Can you know just blow past all? These question marks just think like Oh you know they'll just they'll. They'll figure it out. You. Don't know if they're going to figure it out. They were one of the you know. They were pushing to be the favorites to take. The last year ended up third. Like. I don't really know. They might have been so five hundred. They might have been fourth. I'm not really sure. I didn't check that, but you know I don't really think that they're the team to be betting on output them lower on the list at number nine. Another team I don't agree with because they need to be much higher. It is the Oakland Athletics. How? How do you pick this team to be? There the Ninth Best Team in baseball the ninth. No, no, no, no, no sir you know they have. They have great pitching. I've spoke on this the last two episodes. A love the Oakland A.'s. They're built to be great. They have. Amazing Pitching They have amazing defense. They always have a sneaky offense. top-five waited runs, created plus the past three seasons. And the easiest schedule in the game what? What am I missing? What, what are the? Were you seeing that I'm not seeing that? You're putting Oakland the ninth best team like if you're putting. Fill if you're putting the phillies at ten due to potential. How, Howard House Oakland nine. Just based off potential alone. They should be like sixth, maybe even top five. That's that's ridiculous that kind of make that. That's your attending I mean. Yeah, they lost. They lost Aj puck. I'll give him that. But they're still incredibly deep pitching wise. I mean barring a catastrophic injury I don't like. I don't see this team winning less than forty games. This team is going to be amazing. They're the team. They are the team to beat in the Al West. I'm putting that out there right now. They are the team to beat their winning. The Al West upset at the past couple episodes. I will say it again. If you have a chance to go bet. On a team that's going to take the west. Throw it down. For the Oakland A.'s moving on. The Saint Louis Cardinals. Understand this based on. Just. The soft schedule. You know they got tiny young pitching always do. And other coming off at AOL or the NFL CS appearance. I actually think that could be a little low. You know they're. They're fool of young talent. Their full veteran talent. They have one of the best young pitchers in the game and flaherty. Carlos Martinez looks to be playing very very well. And you know you know they have somebody coming like you know. They have some sort of prospect just chilling in the minors ready to come up and take the game by storm. You know it's you know it's going to happen. When's it going to happen? WHO'S GOING TO BE? I mean. I mean if miles. Nicolas takes a step forward. And they have somebody coming up. The. That's not fair. I think that I think that these guys are a little low I think that you can move them up maybe a wrong. I would say maybe a spotter to. But here? Number Eight. I. Don't know I think that's a little. Too Low I think you could definitely place him. Ahead of our next team Our next team is Minnesota the Minnesota twins now. I've lived in Minnesota the past two years and you know. I've said this before I'll say it again. I don't think they have the pitching to get them over the Hump Jose. Barrios is a great pitcher, but Rocco Ball. Deli needs to understand that he only has about five innings in them. Once, this guy gets around one hundred pitches. It's it's done for him. Maybe he can make the leap. Who knows I know last year it was the round the hundred pitch mark. You know. It went awol, and that's not something that the you know that the twins can handle especially you know they yeah. They can't up my data and they got rich hill but KANTA. My Ada can only do so much. He's a decent bullpen PC's nothing over the top. He's not a guy who's GonNa, put you in a front runner to take you know. Take the world series richhill. He s some good games, but he's really boom bust at any moment so I mean. Yeah the Minnesota twins. They have a hotline up. But you know pitching wise. I think it's all I think it's all a facade. I just don't. I don't take them as a legitimate threat at all. Whatsoever I would have rated them. Probably I WANNA rated him probably nine. Nine hundred good spot because they're gonNA take. They're going to play very well in the central this year. I see them ending first or second in the Al Central, which should put them around. You know with the soft schedule around I would say an eight or nine ranking. Yeah I don't I, don't I? Don't see him I. Don't see him being seven I. Don't know. Yeah, no definitely not next up. We have the Washington nationals now. They did lose men don't. They lost Joe Ross. So that takes a little bit of a hit. They lost. Ryan Zimmerman, so yeah, they got. They got some bats. They got some bats that you know. Big Bats that are gonna need to be filled. But you know when you have the pitching Corbin, shirts or Strasbourg. ANABOL- Sanchez. And you know they have Austin. you know Austin Vases you know I think is. A good legitimate contender for the five hole in the rotation We'll see how he does. It's a big spot to fill Joe. Ross is definitely no slouch. We'll see how he handles the the new role, but you know I. think that this is a good slot forum you know until. We see you, you know. Take on some pretty big names I. think you know you gotta give respect where respect is due the defending world series champions putting them at six, you know. That's not something that happens you know all the time. I think for them to be a viable contender I think Carter key boom. He's have a really really big year I think wants Soto needs to take a leap and go from around that to seventy to eighty. Batting average and bump that up to around three hundred I feel like he needs to. You know. Get on base a little bit more. Steal some bases, but. You know so far so good. You know you still got. Out there we'll see what the nets can do see if they can you know? Fend off some teams and you know maybe be. Who knows maybe they could get hot at the right time. I mean they did it last year might as well. Give him a shot to do with this year. So. You know I think I think that's sixth is a is a really good spot now at number five. We have everybody's favorite villains. Houston Astros. Yeah. You know they. They did lose Garrett Cole, but you know they still have Zach grinky back. With Justin verlander. And they have great bullpen. You know the lineup is super stacked with talent. Barring. Guys getting hurt because they're getting thrown at I mean. Bregman springer and Vay all got hit by the by the Kansas City royals pitcher so. Who knows maybe one of these guys could throw pitch and just get him in the right spot and knock them out. I I'm not for the injuries I don't think throwing it. People intentionally is good especially around the head and neck area. Keep it below the neck. Somebody's livelihood guys. Like I'm all for dotting somebody. Right between the numbers. Just give them a little well like. Hey, you messed up. Don't do it again. But when you get the head and neck like that's that's way way way too much. Way Too much so who knows maybe you know a guy could be. He could be aiming for you. Know the center of the back. And you know. Let it slip Miss. Location and you know hit somebody on the hand and break a finger. They that's their out for very long time probably with the shortened season that could be done for the year and you know you lose a couple of your big guys like that. You know it could go down You know they still have. I don't think that they're going to go to actually intentionally knock these guys out of the season. But. That's definitely something to look out for with the Houston Astros Yameen. They are powerful team. They do have the reputation. They've been a great team the past four seasons. And you know there's? Some there always someone you're gonNA. Have to be paying attention to as long as they have this roster that. Pitching rotation and the bullpen there there's. Justifiable that there in the fifth spot. I guarantee you. Things will change after the start of the season, but as of right now it's a good spot for him. At number four on the list. Is My Atlanta Braves. That's right, guys the Atlanta braves are number four on the list. You know a Kunia. Albee's? SAROKA freed breemen the core five going in the year. That is amazing. That is a great core. Five right there and they had some major holes in the bullpen. Set Seth Ashamed Green Sorry Will Smith another year milan-san. Added Cole Hamels Kyle. Right looks like he could be the guy to take the fifth spot in the starting rotation. Looking amazing on the mound? and. You know of a and water gets can get some ABC's and Austin Riley can ever realized that he should swing it every single fastball. Austin Riley I've a major bone to pick with you. The amount of fastballs. Right down Broadway that you could hit at one hundred ten miles an hour out of the ballpark with ease that you are watching is. Making me WANNA RIP my hair out. Swing swing in a fastball, you are the opinion. Amee of what Patriots Sarana was in Major League to. Just, avoid all breaking pitches. You were not good at that last year. Avoid breaking pitches if they are look like they're in the zone, just do whatever you can to follow him off until someone makes a mistake throwing you a fastball and you send that thing over the wall. That's all we ask from you. Just drill fastballs. Baby you know work on hitting and change up. You know you don't have to be Tony Gwynn this year. Just shooting like. Having, a three hundred plus batting average versus Greg Maddux. You know we're not expecting you to come out and be. The next Chipper Jones? We just know you're the next toy gloss. Just take fastballs and barrel them over the wall. Play defense at third. That's all you gotta do. Man The braves! Fans love you. Take it from me. They love you. You're the future. You Got Forty Bob's chilling at the hard corner. You're Beijing just swing at fastballs. That's all you need to do. Swing and hit the fastballs. It's all care about. All I care about so moving on from Austin Riley. Yeah Watch out I can't say this any more than I need to, but watch out for the Braves Watch out for the braves. I know they're gonNA. Break my heart I know they're gonNA. Play very well throughout the regular season. They're going to get to the first round of the playoffs and they're going to blow it. But I can't wait for that to happen, because it's been a very long time since one of my teams disappointed me and you know I kind of need that I need that yearly disappointment in my life and I can't wait to get back now. Number three moving on. We have the Tampa Bay rays now the rays. Have a really favorable schedule. As we all know, the rotation that looks, it's going to be a major handful to even the best teams in the game. And a lineup that's proved last year that there are nothing to scoff at. You know have them placed actually have them placed above our next team because of the schedule, but I think one thing that's GonNa you know, hinder from their success is going to be the amount of travel. They have since they're the only team in Florida. If, you know the Blue Jays. Ten you know if they if they stay up north. Preferably Baltimore. are able to do that. Then really the shortest distance that they have is to an interleague opponent which is going to be the braves. And I will maybe the Marlins Man I. Forgot about the Marlins in the last one. Oh boy, that's not good and they're frigging franchise anyway, but you know. It's. The travel. I don't like the travel situation because you're going to. They're going to be playing most of their games. Inside their own division and everybody's going to be up north. So the traveling is probably lead to a lot of wear and tear. You know we'll see. We'll see how that works out for Tampa. But you know. Let's keep an eye on that. I actually have them ranked a little low. I would put them at number two, but. At number two. We have the New York Yankees now. The Yankees are going to be the Yankees, they have been the Yankees and they will forever be the Yankees. They have a culture there and. With Brian Cashman he's. Surprisingly altered the culture. While keeping it the same more they would, they would go for the biggest contracts and say there is not. An like we have all the money in the world, we print money. In New York because we are the Yankees where the Bronx bombers, we are the face of sports. 'cause I mean they kind of are. They are the most profitable franchise in baseball and one of if I'm not mistaken of the top three franchises in the entire world. Most profitable brands! So normally they would go and just spend all the money on these all these. Marquee free agents would say still Kinda, do, but then Brian Cashman has just changed the whole dynamic and brought in an entire farm system. That is. Loaded with talent. Loaded loaded loaded with talent like I saw video on instagram today of this guy. Jason Dominguez is seventeen years old. The dude looks like Aaron Donald. or accusing me he's seventeen years old in the Yankees. You know in the Yankees Minor League system. And this guy looks. Absolutely. Jacked. He'll get defensive lineman. Just dropping nukes. From the left side at Yankee Stadium where it's three, oh five to right field or whatever it is. What is it like three thirteen fourteen? A short porch and this guy. A watch I'll bury. Your records going down. This guy has a full season under his belt. This do looks like he can hit five hundred homers a year. It's ridiculous, so they have that level of even coming up to where if Luke, foyt wants them bigger deal and wants to go somewhere else. You know something like that. Those it'd be like we got this. Guy Jason Dominquez. or seventeen and he's huge. Imagine four years where he actually becomes a full grown man. Dude's GonNa be insane so. Watch out for that. The the Yankees have unlimited resources. In the minor leagues they have unlimited resources in the bullpen. They have unlimited resources pitching and they have. Just one of the most complete lineups in the game. I mean. The only reason I would put them the only reason I would put them in number. Three is because of the schedule on September is going to be murderers row. But after September second look for them to probably be number one. Maybe I would say one be with our next team, but Yeah, that's that's the Yankees Yankees You can't really. You can't really argue with it, but I'm going to argue with it because that's what makes sports fun now, number one. The only really want. There's no no one's surprise of course going to be the dodgers. Seventeen Games this season against teams with winning records from last year, so expect absolute dominance out of Los Angeles. They just locked up. Top three. Are, I would say top three for me, but some people will probably argue top five player in the game. mookie Betts for the next twelve years of his career pretty much his entire career. She's going to be twenty eight October. So the guy's GonNa play until he's forty years old. You know. They have one of the best minor leagues in Baseball. They're just going to absolutely walk through the regular season, and but who knows Lou in the postseason this year. You know if they're. Able to you know make a big step of Kenley Jansen able to settle down from the struggles from last year. Blake trainings a good bullpen piece you know, maybe they stick to a three man, maybe a four man rotation and try to beef up that bullpen. They have the offense to do it. We know that we've known that for very long time, but. are they going to have the pitching to be able to back it up is is Dave Roberts going to actually make the right decisions regarding the bullpen to keep them in a position to be to excel throughout the season? That's a big question. Mark I'm kind of hoping that they make the world series and I'm really hoping that the Yanks make the world series because. Who Doesn't love that I use the word rivalry loosely me and my friends back home and argue the dodgers and Yankees is really a rivalry 'cause they never really play each other. I mean I don't. When was the last time they played each other on the world series like the? Sixties. Eighties maybe I don't even think they did it in the eighties. The Yankees weren't a dry spell in the eighties, so the sixties. Haven't really played a significant meaningful game since the sixties and you still call it a rivalry I'm not really sure, but I mean the rebirth of an old rivalry just to you know. You know just to make a laugh out of the game. Who knows too weird year? Let's let's bring back a rivalry I'm all four rivalries bad blood in sports as well we need. Let's go yanks. Let's go dodgers. Alright, everybody! That was my take on the power rankings I will be right back with my predictions for the MLB awards season. Want to know the latest in soccer. The listen to the golden state media concepts. Soccer podcast MLS the world the Premier League we've got you covered the latest update the hottest matches news on the League's top players. It's the golden state media concepts soccer podcasts. got. Listen. Or everybody would like to thank you for reaching the final segment and stay with me. I, really appreciate it so now. We are going to dive in to. The The MLB preseason awards, so this is how I do preseason awards for any sport now. I get that. The favorites favorites our favorites for a reason, but it's not fun. If you just pick the favorites say like. Mike Trout is the favourite to win Ale. Mvp He always is, and it's the safest picked to win. M. L. MVP, because the best player in the Al But one thing that we've all known is that you know MVP? Fatigue happens like yeah, we know my trout is the best player in baseball we. He's the unanimous MVP every season, but we're not gonNA give. No one's going to give Mike Trout ten straight MVP award. Like just not this is not going to happen. Someone's GonNa come in. They're going to surprise the League in put a team that was kind of on the bubble for the playoffs and you know. Push them right into. You know the front play like you know the front of the. So. What I do is I'm GONNA. Tell you who the favourite is odds wise? This is from odds. Shark Dot Com I took the odds from there, and then I'm going to give you my pick on. Who's going to be the MVP of the season so starting off in the American league MVP race. Obviously, it's Mike Trout. No one needs to really say anything. Everybody knows my trust best player in the game. Doesn't really matter but. Here I am going to give my pick for AOL MVP to Francisco Lindor. I, love Mr Smile so so so much. He's probably my favorite player. Outside of the Braves Organization to watch I watch so many Indians, games just because Francisco Lindor is in my is the most exciting player in the game I feel like it's the most marketable player in the game. He has the he has. The hair like Beckham does in the NFL. He's always smiling. He always has fun and he has about he's going to get around to ninety average thirty homers, and if he plays a whole season between eighty to one, hundred or be is at the shortstop position where that you know isn't entirely common. It's getting more common up until this point but back. Ten years ago. You weren't expecting to get that from a shortstop unless you was troy to Lewinsky or you know a little bit earlier, maybe Nomar Garciaparra and then before that it was Alex Rodriguez. Maybe Miguel Tejada would flirt with it every now and then, but he never really I don't think he really ever got to that point. So. Francisco Lynn Door actually both my MVP's are. shortstops just realized that, but we'll get to the a second I, think Francisco Lindor is going to be the key piece to A. Borderline playoff team. And if the Cleveland Indians are able to get hot. And Push to the play offs. Get past the twins if they have a slow start, or maybe you know the youthfulness of the Chicago, White, Sox have them fizzled down just a little bit and miss out on the playoffs. I feel like for instance. Golden Door is going to be primed for the AL MVP award. We'll see how that turns out now moving onto the NL. mookie Betts. Is Number One. He is plus two eighty five obvious choice you know he was. The Best Player in the Al both besides not named Mike Trout. I should say that Then he moved to the no makes them immediately makes him a favorite to win the MVP or the NL MVP so I'm not surprised there. It seems like it's going to be a very you know. It's a very tight race. Actually, there's I think there's four players that are you know under plus thousand? Cody bellinger, who was the MVP last year's fifth? He goes mookie Betts. Ronald a Kunia Christian Yelich Juan Soto, then cody bellinger, which surprised me. I expected some you know expected something a little different Outta them, but. Maybe bellinger to be a little higher because he won and Avi EP last year, but my pick. This year is actually Ferdinando Totti's junior. I think I. Truly truly truly think that the padres are going to be in contention for the playoffs, and if they do make it to the playoffs. He is the most exciting player on the team. You know he was. He was looking like an MVP candidate before he got hurt last year I think that I. think that Fernando. Totti's junior. He's around seven I think in the rankings I think that if the if he has a big year and the padres or able to get hot and make it to the postseason. Why for not junior could could could come in and sneak. The the NL MVP away from any of those guys I would definitely you know. I've thought about Christian. Yelich but everything that of you know, read and everything that I've seen. He's starting off a little slow I don't like to go back to back. I don't I don't really like back to back years on. Vp I think. Kinda rarely happens and. so. And you know a Kunia. Akune is going to have his ups and downs for the year. He's you know he's GonNa, be great, but I don't think they'll give him the MVP award especially last year when he was forty forty. Three steals away from forty, forty bad, almost three hundred. I mean he was ended up. Fourth I think in the. Third or fourth, so I don't know I, don't I? Don't see them given to them. Mookie, Betts I think there's going to be an adjustment period for him in Los. Angeles I don't think he's GonNa. Play well as he did when he was in Boston. I think it'll take him about a year maybe next year. He's He's going to be a viable option, but this year I don't really think so. And then Juan Soto Want Soto. I don't think integrate position to win the MVP award because they lost so much in the lineup. by It's who you WANNA throw to. Ren d-o-n, no all right. We'll take our chances with Juan, Soto 'cause I mean. He's kind of boomer bus, so he got a lot more. Will pitches especially sandwiched between you know Ren Donen Ryan Zimmerman both those guys are gone, so it's now. It's basically who who are GONNA pitch to. Or like a thirty five year old how he Kendrick. Or you know a a a rookie card or keyboard like it's. There's a lot less protection in the lineup forum, so we'll see we'll see how it goes. I don't think he's GonNa end the season that will, so that is why I have Fernando Totti's junior taking the NL MVP award now I'm going to move onto the cy young award the favorite. Is Garrett Cole Garrett Cole is obviously going to be the favourite. But? For the I I. Honestly think he's going to win this I. do think he's GonNa win this, but for the sake of this to be a contrarian like I always am. My pick is going to be Shane Bieber. He's fresh off an all star MVP. He's got a ten point. Nine K per nine of three point three two. V Any is a two hundred plus inning pitcher. That's something you're not going to see very much of anymore. PITCHER's throwing two hundred plus innings. That's I think that's going to be a real rarity. I think chain. BIEBER IS GONNA. Come in, and he's going to set. You know he's going to set. The tone is going to be him. It's GonNa be Clovinger, and it's going to be Carlos, Carrasco, and they're going to be you know the front guys. That are going to try and push the Indians into the playoffs and I was like you know if the Indians do make the playoffs and he has a shutout year. Are a lights out year I should say. Wash out for him to take the CY young award. He is second in the odd, so it's not like I'm going on on that crazy of Elim, but he's not number one, so that's why I am able to pick Shane Bieber now moving onto the NFL favorite. We have Jacob degrom. He has a lot more to deal with now that Marcus Stroman is out, he may not you know he may not. Do so hot this year the mets might not do so hot, and if the mets don't make playoffs I. Don't think that he's GonNa win the Cy Young. They did that. Happen a couple of years ago, but I don't think they'll give it to him again especially if my pick does very well which he is expected to do. My pick is Jack flirty of the Saint Louis Cardinals. The man has a sub one whip which I think is. That's my favorites. Data look for for pitchers is whip I think it's. Undervalued, especially in the you know the advanced metrics age with something that you know I've been looking at ever since I was younger and I think it's a very good I think it's a very good way to you know. Really Kinda. Summarize a Pitcher, season and soap one is. Amazing to me at least His ten point six K per nine. He had a two point seven five era in a three point four flat VIP. The Dude, he's just. He's just a polar. And all videos I've seen granted. They're instagram videos. All highlights and. Lowlights, but you know he has nasty. Wipe out stuff. He looks amazing on the mound. He looks like an incredible player. I can't wait to watch. The car knows this year and I think if you know if you WANNA, go out on a limb and pick a dark horse to win the Cy Young Award might as well go Jack Flaherty. They were just like you know when I mentioned earlier during the power rankings they were. In the NFC S. Know and. They'RE GONNA have. The offense GONNA compete there have the bullpen to close games to get him winds because winds. You know even though it's not as important as it was back in the day. Winds are still important to win the Cy Young Award so I think the Jack. flair is going to be able to put up the stats. I think that the Saint Louis Cardinals are going to put themselves into a position to get back into the playoffs and maybe win the NFL Central and if that's the case, watch out, Jack Flaherty is I'm is my pick for the. Award. Last. But. Not least we're moving onto the rookie of the year award. bummed out. I was Yoda in shadow Yoda for that. To see that the AL favorite was Lewis Robert. Really bummed. And guess what I'm going to completely contradict myself because I'm picking Lewis Robert. He is the favourite. He is my favorite rookie this year. I don't care what anybody says. I, had him last year on my fantasy team, because I was waiting for him to get called up. Never did really bummed. Have a bone to pick with you Jerry REINSDORF. Why did you not bring my man up last year? He coulda done incredible things for you last year and blew it, but now he's doing incredible things for this year, so I am excited I am fully on the bandwagon I will not jump off that Bandwagon Lewis. Robert is going to win the Ale rookie of the year award. Bet It. collected. Love it. Next up. Lastly, we are going to the NFL favorite now the no favorite concrete me. It kind of threw me off for a little bit because the NFL. Favorite is actually Gavin, Lux. He didn't even make the starting like the opening day roster for the dodgers. And he's going to win rookie of the year now. Thank you so. My pick. is going to be Brendan Rodgers. Of the Colorado rockies now the Colorado rockies. Have a hole to fill. At second base. I think Brennan Rogers GonNa fit in well so. You know we're. Let's go down list of players Saint Louis. Saint Louis Good enough is known for having good rookies, but none of them have ever been very stellar. So Man I. Forget who that was. Actually who is the number to do to ought shirk? Let's check it out little. Let's see to reduce with me here. The. The Year. moby twenty twenty. By all right, so let's bring this up. Let's talk about this in an were Odd Shark Odd Shark Shark Hot Shark. Let's go history actually. Go show will history. Bam. Yesterday forty nine items. Let's go. Rookie year Bam odd shark. Let's get it over. Okay so. Going down. Yes, okay, Dylan Carlson is who I'm thinking of. Thanks for sticking with me with that bad radio, anyways. Yet Dylan Carlson is number two on the list and yeah, you know the the cardinals do they have? They have good rookies every year, but they never really stand out except for poodles in two thousand one so i. don't really see them as. You know I don't see him as a legitimate threat. They haven't outfield. That's filled with. You know talented athletes. They have a first baseman. You know they have Paul Goldschmidt and they even have you know not carpenter to back him up, so I don't see him getting the real. A B.'s actually put them in a good position to do. you know to win the rookie of the year? You know Carter key boom has a chance, but he needs to have an when he needs to have a great offensive year to do it. I don't see you know. I don't I. Don't see him if he just has a good defensive season and put so par offense numbers I. Don't see him winning I. Really don't I don't see him taking the. Rookie of the year award. Nan I also don't see a pitcher doing it like the pitchers on the list are. Let's see we have Mitch Keller. Mackenzie Gore Dustin may like I just don't. I, just don't see pitchers winning I, really do I really really don't. But. You know who knows, they could prove me wrong, but to me. I just don't see it. So that is why I have Brennan. Rogers. You know the rockies fat some sex. That success with Infield prospects making a splash on the scene. And you know, so. I see I. See Rogers to do the same you know. He has really good contact abilities. Good powers got a powerful arm and I think he's GonNa fit well with the infield. Nolan Erno made a splash when he made it on the scene. Trevor Story made a splash when he made it on the scene. Like those are the last two big prospects that they have and they've all you know. Both of them have hit really well, so I feel like with those two backing him up and you know showing him the ropes. I feel like he could really i. feel like you really make an impact on the field for the Colorado rockies. So that is why taking him as my nl rookie of the year in that, everybody is our show.

"He's what about how it was the other name of that quarterback you guys had the seventies landry. Good one bill maher scott. Mitchell was probably your first good one for a long while. Yeah chop long. There was another guy a camera chuck long. I know he was a first round. Nothing was pretty good for. Billy sam's back in with gary danielson. Yeah gary danielson. I wasn't a huge fan of his. Quite honestly yeah he. He made a good name in in the media broadcast more of a broadcaster. Yeah he's a good. Yeah he he he was kind of a journeyman anyway. Yeah he kind of slipped in a little bit later. I just remember the playoff game. Against the niners were monte clark prayed and eddie murray missed the film handle That was just gary danielson and billy sims team and then hey the last drive it was all set up perfectly and then you you just You just took the air out of the room right there. And then i. I remember a previous year. Detroit lusted dallas five zero. They once the not to bring miserable. What what's the worst for you. The most memorable worst most disappointing lions loss. I think the jinx still on. When tom dempsey made that sixty three yard field goal from that day forward it hasn't been very rosy tom dempsey had half a foot and he what say sixty three yards and it was outdoors in tulane stadium in new orleans. And when you're these misery stories you remember details because you don't have any good things kinda just sail through. But he did the old straight on super kick but he had murray he had half a foot and they designed to shoot. It was literally like a a pay. You know you think about disabled people in sports are successful. i mean he was. He was one of the first. I can even think of. Oh you got to take your head off to that bad. of course it's absolutely. Yeah but he. I guess if you had to put like that you'd have to kick it sort of pat summerall style like that Yeah you remember. Fred cox from minnesota has a funny shoe.

The only sports talk show that features a rhode scholar. But he ain't here today now. Back to rick tittle tittle. What is going on great to have you with us. Those wrap up these teams here with these non tenure decisions have to do the biggest story in baseball when it comes to non tenders minnesota twins who will not tender eddie. Sorry sorry i was going to make about ten million ann arbor this guy. Ninety six home runs last four years. That's top thirty in baseball. The problem is he doesn't do anything else doesn't get on base. Can't run is defense is a liability. Twins have alex cure olov who is. Mlb ready remember. They thought so much care off that his major league debut was game to wildcard series. So he's just going to step in and that money that they're gonna save is going to go towards pitching happens. They're the mets. The mets have thirteen arbitration layers. Right now and you could say maybe only one or two is on the fence. I mean i would think year mo- heredia the outfielder. They don't need him. What about steven mats mats. I mean this guy was their top prospect. It'd be thought he'd be the as he'd be as good as degrom and syndergaard rejected to make little over five mil next year. But he allowed thirty three runs in thirty innings. And he's a guy who averages thirty starts a year you could say. He's the only guy in the mets that you can rely upon on whom you can rely. But i think with new york and the money they have. It would be stupid to cut him loose across the east river there. You got gary sanchez. Actually i should say up in the bronx not going to manhattan up in the bronx. They're still on long island. Technically gary sanchez. Talk about a bargain at five. And a half mil but there were some people who thought gary sanchez was the worst player in baseball last year. Worst player in baseball. But here's the thing. He wasn't the worst player in baseball. And the yankees. Don't have a lot of depth behind the plate. He's only twenty seven years old a year ago. He was an all star. Hit thirty four home runs so first of all. You're the yankees. You don't non tender guy five and a half million. How much you pay at your dinners stupid. So with the as their non tender candidates were pinder and camp. They've signed both of those guys. The fills velazquez for a million are days. You watch vince velazquez. It's and you wonder how anyone could have ever gotten a hit off them and then you wonder how he got a rookie ball. Talk about a feast or famine guy but still last two years with the er a over five. You could be a guy actor. Nearest had a seven million dollar option. And that's already been declined right there. So maybe the phillies trying. Save a little dasche there to the pirates. They don't have. I mean look they. They're so young. Maybe their biggest non tender guy colin moran play. I does he play outfield. he wouldn't even make two million in our so. I mean thing about moran is you could say he was their best hitter until they called up to bryan hayes. But it's berg has younger players who need at first base like josh bell or third base. Like hey are left field by brian reynolds. That's where moran plays so. I dunno bell backward. That had adam frazier but that's a decision for them. Cardinals don't have anybody. I mean coleman wong at a twelve and a half million dollar option which i thought was reasonable for what he brings air decline that they don't have any non tender candidate other than a guy named john brennan via a right handed pitcher. Who's gonna make eight hundred k the padres tommy. Fam- eight million projected non tendering him would have been unthinkable even after this down season and sam got stabbed and an altercation in october and it was called catastrophic injuries that will cause significant economic damage. And he's on the road to recovery apparently but that's One of those things where it's a really sad story. I'm getting stabbed at a the way. He sued the strip club in which he was stabbed. He was apparently trapped in the club. And that the employees didn't even call the cops. It's it's an ugly story the The giants last offseason signed anderson one day literally one day after he was non tendered by the rockies and he turned in okay season after coming back from From knee surgery. But he's gonna make maybe about four million and do they want to gamble on that. Other guys they could let go daniel robertson. They acquired league former as us back and raise player for got as well. I'm sure a lot of giants fans would like to drive. Trevor got to the airport to the cal. Train station was closer than cal. Trans lackluster mariners. Catcher tom murphy. Who cares. But i mean if you think about like j p crawford arbitration eligible. He's coming back. He won the gold glove at short. Mitch haniger got. Mvp votes was an all star. They're going to be tendered contracts. We know that even though the guy always gets floated and trade talks for some reason or another arrays with ji mon choi he still only make about a million and a half. They've already cut hunter. Renfrow a trade didn't really well. I mean at times it worked out but in the long run no that was for four million dollar option. We know that money might be a little tight down there as it always is. They walked away from charlie. Morton's option is now with the bravo's on fifteen mill rangers any santana a utility guy. Twenty eight home runs and twenty nine thousand nine this last year. He at one forty five. I don't know they think maybe income back at a lower salary guys. They'll keep around joey gallo. Isaiah kinda falesa rafael montero. They'll definitely keep those guys around blue jays. Travis shaw or and a half mil. They took a one year flyer on him. Didn't really work out. They're not trying to get guys. Like george springer and other big time candidates Up there in toronto see and they talked about making some splashes and then with the The nats who are no longer world series. Champion joe ross. Former bishop outta high school round. Pick of san diego probably let him walk. Even though i mean what's he gonna make a million and a half an arm the other guys. I have a feeling we'll get tender though it'd be want soto and trai turner the thing about joe ross. Is he opted out last year and he was ineffective the year before that anyway. So he's going to be. Non tendered By the way the mets did make a splash. Yesterday in free agency brought in reliever. Trevor may from the twins on a two year deal worth about fifteen million dollars to help bolster that bullpen. Thirty one years old at three eight. Six thirty eight ks and twenty three and a third twenty four games for the twins reared and more than half of their games. seventh best reliever in baseball last year. So you know. He didn't have a set role with the twin bullpen. He was set setup guy. He was the closer but ever since he came back from. Tommy john a couple of years ago. He's been very very good. And the mets could use some bullpen. Help remember they had any are close to five last year on. The kansas wasn't good. You're familiar somehow. Still in the league even edwin diaz was not the guy. We thought the mets last year. I think about it many games that we play last year. Sixty twenty seven blown saves this new guy steven cohen. He's come in. He gave marcus stroman qualifying offer Robinson cano is out maybe. His career is over now at this pd suspension being for the whole year. But this is the first sign that the new ownership is like. It's not the old mets. We're gonna actually impede and we're going to be good again. We'll see a little hot stove.

Because i'm so good looking you must be crazy. Used a d. o. g. And if you was my man. I would have been kicked you out of my house by now. This is what had happened. this gracious. That is really something else. You know that all right. Hey hey hey kids guess what used to be with your boy that i could tell you. Every single player on the united states. Men's national team i could. I could go down the lineup. And in and out upside down all around. And i got to a state of such disgust that i wanna say. Stop paying attention completely but for a good year immediately deleted any email that came from the u. triplets just was like nam. Good i don't wanna hear it and so now i'm so out of the loop on our young talent but then again i kind of feel like everyone is out of the lou. Now let me explain what that means. And i mean everybody. First of all gregg berhalter as our head coach. Gregg berhalter was a former defender united states. Men's national team e should not be our head coach. No american should be our head coach. I don't care if it's landon donovan or clint dempsey or a c. Killer i just. I don't want a former usa player. It's just the hubris of thinking. We know what we're doing because we still don't we still don't we thought we did. But we don't let me tell you why. I think everybody else doesn't know these guys. I'm just gonna read you. The players that berhalter just selected this week to plan our next international goalkeepers cj dos santos with benfica. He's never been capped. I like the fact that he's went. Benthic so i never heard of him. David with rail salt lake never been capped. Ill mead with dc united seven caps all three of those guys defenders holy on araujo. La galaxy no caps never heard of him heil dunkin new york red bulls no caps never heard of him marco far fong orland timbers no caps never heard of him maria pineda chicago fire no caps never heard of him mark mckenzie philadelphia union one cap never heard of him sam vines colorado rapids one cap never heard of him and you get erin along with the new york red bulls seventeen caps three goals. I remember the name. Walker zimmerman with nashville. I remember him as well. So so far goalkeepers. And the defensemen i heard of two midfielders brenden aaronson philadelphia union. One cap never heard of him. Frankie amaya fc cincinnati no caps never heard of him colorado rapids midfielder cole bassett never been capped. Also never heard of him commit filters calendar costa. I've heard of him sebastian. Legit him so far. Four guys now. Let's get to the strikers. I'll know la toronto. Fc no caps never heard of him at frying alvarez l. a. galaxy no caps. Never heard of him. Daryl dyke orlando city. No caps never heard of him. Chris mueller orlando city. No caps never heard of them. Your game a high of itch chicago fire. Five cabs never heard of him and paul arriola boob jokes thirty three caps. I've heard of him. I've heard of five guys now. I understand that when you get a team together like this for a noncompetitive game which is basically means friendly or what. They also call on europe as a full international that. You're not going to be calling a lot of guys from overseas. You're going to give a lot of young guys their chance and this always happens when you have friendlies that happened during the season you're usually not going to call guys over from south america africa europe. What have you but still. I have only heard of five guys really. Four one guy rings a bell. But how many debutantes do you want to have. Is that a good or a bad thing. How many guys have never represented the united states at senior level. One two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve guys so i do understand. You need to blood. These guys. dominic say their campaigns here. Who's going on. Yeah just said a lot of the guys are based in europe. Right as i said these guys are not gonna pull christian. Pulisic out of the chelsea tottenham game. Because they're gonna play antigua or whatever which they shouldn't but also remember. After the united states had qualified for the world cup in south korea japan. They played a warm up game against china at the oakland coliseum. And i got a chance to interview. Brian mcbride after the game. And then there was a press conference with bruce arena and the head coach and he actually came out from behind the podium. Like challenge me or something. Is this weird thing. Because they had Brought in Tony meola and they had these younger guys. One of them was tim. Howard and i said why didn't you apply one of the younger goalies. And he goes. Who do you think. Who do you think our goal is going to be at the world cup. I said friedel. And keller he goes right. So what do you care if i play meal in a friendly. You give a young guy a chance telling me almost one hundred years old and it was kinda don all right so i need to get with it and the country needs to get with it. And they're twelve debutants. Let's go to the phone lines at one. Eight hundred seventy. Let's go to chris in oakland. What's up chris. Ricca think social taking my call again another great show and i just i was what you just talked about the soccer team. You follow tottenham. I don't follow any soccer. you know i. I'm not a cultured enough as you. I did see. I've been to her. I saw medica game and that was passionate man. So i've seen it and i can get it and i think that you're just hop you just said i think that americans were How do you say we're not Romantic like when you think of like you know people from europe or south america. Whatever about soccer. But i mean when you start talking about this made me reminder of the nineteen eighty hockey game and i was eight years all the time i remember. It was on tape delay. I remember that. But i remember watching the game and i i couldn't name you. You know half those guys now. And i've seen miracle bunch of times but that concept of team with a bunch of nobody's coming together i mean that's like hollywood that's americana man so i if i'm this coach i i. The the gentleman said that was the former back or midfielder was midfield or defence halter. Yeah yeah okay. Great colonel are halter. That was on. zero's that that is. here's little for my time but anyway Yeah i do. I could just see how the coach is gonna try to spin that as like. Hey you know we got a bunch of guys and we give him a shot. you know. maybe we'll take it and hit lightning in a bottle and you know it happened in the nineteen eighty olympic team but remember what happened in eighty four and eighty eight and you know pretty much most teams to get an h. l. players that the team was loudly. So i guess. I agree with you You know but i. You know and i but i defer to your judgment as a as a true soccer fan but you know i. I'm gonna fairweather soccer guys. I'll watch you obviously every olympics. You watch it world cup. Watch it But i i've never been to advise stadium. I've you know. And like i said i've seen achieve s game down hard but i don't know all right. Hey chris good stuff man thanks for chiming in appreciate it out there and oakland. That must have been fun. I went to achieve game one time and they played club. Santos which is pilates club in brazil they played. At and t. Park and the whole time across when g. t. is that's what i always think of. Jeeva is seen a lot of clubs over the years coming through Yeah i mean listen. What he said is right But the united states you know obviously not trying to win this game at all costs when you have twelve debutants. Because they're not going to sit on the bench. A lot of those guys are gonna play and it's good this. It's really what it's for the thing that it's not so much that they're youngsters. It's the fact that i'd never heard of them. So i question how much of it is because i stopped following it. And how much of. It are these guys stinking and i think what it is is the mls has expanded so much and is so watered down. That is so lame and every year they add a new team. And i bet you were going to get up to forty teams pretty soon seriously. Forty teams and the quality of play is so barnyard. It's just acworth words. You will can't trap pass. And i feel bad saying that because i do really really like the earthquakes and i love ice stadium. You should really get down there chris. I remember talking about john lund. He wanted to go down just for the bar at has the world's biggest outdoor bar. It's got the coolest statics of Throwing in Let's see dominic says. It's definitely not just you. I recommend recognize more names than you are seriously some random guys on there and look it would be nice if all our young guys went overseas. Like donovan. did it by leverkusen twice before you got homesick. And then eventually everton. Or like brian. Mcbride at a press northbound before ever tinners You had john. O'brien went to the i ex school. You had giovane karofsky who grew up with that generation of the nedal brothers. Nicky butt and david beckham at old trafford. In fact he led that youth team in scoring. Alex ferguson flew down to lancaster gate. Try to get him to come. But he couldn't get a work pass because european union says you had to start seventy five percent of your full internationals to get a working pass. And he was too young so he didn't get a permit a work permanent. I should say that You know why. Do you think christian pulisic gameplay play overseas. It's because his His father being croatian he's got a croatian passport But the other thing is christian. Realistic is one of those emails from her she. Pa he's just one in a million talent and you know he's the best player we've ever put out as far as what he's accomplished at his age. Thinking about those places like carney new jersey or as we would say here currently carney new jersey. Which had tab ramos. And john harkes and only meal and they just kept pumping out a lot of talent that uva team which arena was good at a claudio reyna and those guys are just mentioned coming through even fremont california dominant career and you had a john oil These little pockets that would produce some good players. But i just think it's so why do you think the premier league has twenty teams and not forty teams thirty because they want every game to be competitive and even the bottom team the united. You take your eye off the ball for second and you will lose. Because they want some semblance of parody and that league the mls. I like it. I'm glad we have it but it's just expanding like the universe. The milky way league. I retired. We'll take a quick break. Come on back.

Eighty five million dollar max contract extension. He is locked up through twenty twenty three that means his eighteenth. Nineteenth and twentieth seasons will be with the lakers remember prior to signing the extension. James had two years remaining on the four year. One hundred and fifty. Three million dollar deal with the lakers so said we can repeat. I mean stats simple. We absolutely can first of all it all starts with health.

You're listening to wrestling observer. Live with bryan alvarez and mike semper. Vv on the sports byline broadcasting network. The show bryan alvarez here wrestling observer. Live of mike zimmer. Bb also wrestling observer. That calm and it was just gonna sound like a plug for the members area after. Pat patterson passed away. But i mean if you want hear about pat. Patterson i mean no one's gonna top dave tonight on observer radio so i'm going to say a bunch of stuff here but i expect i don't know what to expect on the show here tonight like he may go for three straight hours off to figure out how to get it up on the website. But if you've ever listened to dave talk about. His childhood in pro wrestling. Having his childhood in pro wrestling was all about growing up and going to the cow palace in san francisco and have patterson and obviously i mean he could talk for probably about ten hours just about pat patterson in san francisco but quite frankly if you think about the life of pat patterson what had patterson not do. He did everything wrestler all over the world. If you're my age forty five or younger. I mean what you probably remember is pat patterson and gerald brisco working as stooges. Which if you think about all of the things that he did as a character during his career. I mean quite frankly would rank very very low but if you actually go back and watch it. The greatest him. They were the greatest in that role. As vincent van stooges pat was in his mid fifties at the time and every now and then they would actually get in the ring. And they in the ring and paddles like outworking everybody on the roster. But of course at that time you know. He's old and vince. mcmahon's mine. so hey she's going to be pat. Patterson place stooge be a geek but man. That guy could still work and getting in there. I don't know if he could still work at seventy nine. But i would bet that if you put him in the ring for angle a couple years ago. He's still throw better punches. Anybody on the roster. He probably still bump better than half the people on the roster a fantastic worker. He went all over the world. And how many times on this show. If i talked about peanut size brains hadrosaurs writing stupid storylines in pro wrestling. Let me tell you who wasn't in that camp. That patterson guy was a genius if you watched stuff that the greatest stuff that w we ever did in terms of of i guess popularity. I mean they've had their great matches here and there but watch the late nineties early. Two thousand stuff and watch these finishes state of the art at the time and you know. Now they're still doing these finishes twenty years later. I mean pat patterson he designed half of these great finishes that you saw. Maybe even more than that. I mean he was a tremendous mind. He helped everybody. i mean. go up on twitter today. And look at the twitter timeline of everybody from like roman reigns and and the rock all of these these like everybody all of this praise. For what a great wrestling mind. Pat patterson was came up with the idea for the royal rumble which she can say whatever he wants about the royal rumble nowadays. But if you go back and look at some of these royal rumbles. Nobody really talks about. It's great royal rumbles but that nineteen ninety royal rumble that was setting up hulk hogan and warrior at the skydome. We went back and watch that rumble. That rumble was awesome. That was an awesome. Royal rumble allegedly the first-ever intercontinental champion. Everybody knows the story about that. There was no tournament but he was the first international champion. How you go back further than that you go to today. I mean pat. Patterson was a. He was still working with me. He was still working as a consultant. He loved at ecksteen. And quite frankly if you if you watch so many things like a loaded headbutt gimmick and annexed team. I bet you anything that came from pat. Patterson he did the same gimmick early seventies. So you could go through all of these different ideas. These great ideas i mean. Pat was therefore everything If you wanna read dave's bio on the front page that's totally free co up. There's a gigantic bio it's probably a drop in the bucket with dave could actually write about pat patterson but big time wrestling. He worked in the pacific northwest san francisco championship wrestling from florida. The awa new japan w. e. and then of course besides just the in ring. It was everything behind the scenes as well with patterson so as far as a guy that did everything that you could do. I mean he refereed. He was an agent. He was a hall of fame wrestler. Everything was probably one half of the greatest tag team of the seventies. I mean as far as the guy who did everything and was like i mean we always used to say about shawn michaels like this guy did everything and he was great at everything you could put the guy in the rings. Referee could put the guy in the ring as a wrestler. You could have the guy train wrestlers you can have them do goofy commentary. I mean he was great at everything. Patterson he was great at everything for a lot longer than shawn. Michaels was so it. Alzheimer at absolute alzheimer at mike. Any thoughts on the life of pat patterson. He was almost great right away you know. He started wrestling thing when he was like seventeen or eighteen. Search wrestling in montreal. In the late fifties comes to boston in one thousand nine hundred. Sixty two hits. Tony santos up the boston promoter. When he went to montreal he knew no english knowingly at all basically you know me you book me santos game cards at all right here. You go and and he ends up making the connection. He goes to boston knows. No english whatsoever goes to a restaurant every day orders hamburger steak. Because that's what he knew. He knew emperor steak so he would order that every day and he slowly learned english and probably the actually the coolest thing that happened to to him. There was he met louis doned era who he was with for decades his his very close friend that and that's one of the biggest things with his with patterson's book. That's the best part about patterson's book because you know there were a lot of he talks about it. There were gay wrestlers that he met you know right away in boston. That took him out and that's where he met louis. And that's the best. Part of that book is him talking about his relationship with louis don garrison about in the wrestling business for a long time. He goes been needled about a polk data and all the jokes that were made on. wwf tv. But that's really the best part about that. Book is his relationship with him but he leaves boston. He goes to washington and oregon and he immediately is a star there and by the time a couple years later goes to san francisco. He's already major star and he goes and works for one of the greatest minds For as rough of a personalities. Roy shire was. He was a brilliant booker. He was a great finish guy. You know he's part of that. Tree with eddie graham and bill watts and all those guys. I mean just incredible. And he's not only working for one of the great minds in the wrestling business. He teams with ray stevens one of the greatest workers of all time to to become one of the greatest tag teams of all time so the education that he got at such a young age and he was such a good worker when he came to san francisco and i know dave is going to talk about that a lot. I obviously being a lot younger. Pick him up more in his. Wwf days that sargent slaughter bootcamp match which is up on the network for may of nineteen eighty-one is incredible. Another thing that pat patterson did that. You know people talk about him. Being the first intercontinental champion beats for the north american title diaz had already lost mid south. But they're gonna establish his intercontinental title the great fictitious tournament in rio de janeiro. The shirt that paterson would proudly wear when he was a stooge. I ever icy champion. Rio de janeiro on the back. But if you're the wrestling in the garden book i actually had to go to this thing to see if i was remembering correctly. That pat patterson. There's a formula madison square garden. And you had three matches. That was the bruno deal. You you end up with a disqualification in the first one a double count out in the second one. Then you have the big blow off match. Usually it's going to be some sort of stipulation match. Patterson in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine and bob backlit went four and i know it may not sound like a big deal now to anybody listening but that was a big deal then all four crowds. I believe were over. Eighteen thousand the the big blow opted the biggest number at the end and that was a big deal and the work that he did there right up until nineteen eighty-three where they actually did a deal with ivan. Kolev eighty three very interesting year to watch. Wwf but patterson's only thirty nine years old or four years old at that time it's amazing. And obviously he did all the stuff passed it. He what he did with the rumble and all that stuff is legendary. And sure we're gonna get into it more after the break just a r.i.p godspeed. Pat patterson a true professional wrestling. Legend says written that patterson the legend first ever international champion first openly gay wrestler creator of the royal rumble. Wrestling would look dramatically different today if it was not for pat huge loss more after the break wrestling observer live.

For since i lived in the second decade of roy moore's wrestling at the cow palace. Today we lost its greatest star today. We lost my hero. And with that. The words of hank renner once again and forever. United states heavyweight champion pat patterson yours in wrestling dante. If you want to send us text message today you are welcome to do so for two five seven. Eight zero seven five. Six six is the number and his forty five seven. Eight zero seven five. Six six person says taking pat patterson off the royal rumble. Booking panel was a huge mistake. I mean listen. I would not for one second when when this thing started going off the rails in the fall of twenty eighteen and nothing made sense and they think becky supposed to be a he'll because she turns on charlet after charlotte. It's just a horrible person to it. That was the beginning of the end. By the way. I mean if they would have decided. You know what. Vince is gonna take a break. And pat patterson is going to be in charge. Like i realized that patterson was even older than vince. And sometimes when you see things one way man. I would not hesitate for one second to put that guy in charge of booking and get vince out of there because that guy at least had a logical professional wrestling booking mind more so like vince got very lucky. But can i'm watching the invasion of two thousand one right now. What in the hell's going on. It's a disaster. That was twenty years ago. And i still heard good things about pat patterson up until this very day so not happening but man well. Pat patterson had a lot of other ideas to fall back on. You know he went and worked for eddie. Graham we talked about working with Roy shire for all those years you know he was around eight minds and you know something would tell me that he would fall back more on logical pro wrestling things and have them lay them out and have them make sense because they're tried and true as opposed to again vincent as his angry snow globe that he shakes up where he just continues to spin ideas around and recycles ones. That have never worked before and and will never work again but mail. They'll they'll definitely work this time. Sure they will events. I'll get into this other thing that people have been texting me about later. I off rip pat patterson a true legend and one of the greatest of all time and then the follow up question here is about the show tonight winners coming where in fact it is very cold tonight. Apparently it is going to be in the low. Forty s in jacksonville. Tonight is wondering how that's gonna affect the wrestlers. Well i mean. I can't answer that question. Because i i've never worked outside and forty degree weather probably sucks. I mean yard. The reality is like wants to get warmed up. It's going to suck a lot less but you gotta get warmed up before going out there and i don't know what they're gonna do in terms of what's going to be surrounding the ring. Are they gonna get some heat lamps up there. I mean how cold is it been previous tapings. They're the same building they've been in like the entire year. I mean have. We had a forty degree day. We had a fifty degree day. Is this the first time we've been in the forties. I don't have any answers to these questions. So i can try to find out something. But that's all. Here's what i want you to find out for me because i know. Nfl teams. Have you know those bubbles that you know are essentially like inflatable bubble domes. Why find out if they have one of those for the jacksonville jaguars and if the they can actually start utilizing that because that may be the way to go is to get out of the taylor amphitheater and go into a flat surface a field or something like that. It may not be aesthetically pleasing. But when you're in the forties or maybe hell heaven forbid you drop down into the thirties one hundred and there's a frost that's gonna suck on tv this person. Here's says no matter. How old patterson was his mind for the wrestling. Business was a sharp is ever a perfect example. Is seth rollins cashing during the brock and roman main event of wrestlemania. Five years ago brilliant finish apparently laid out by pat. He will be sorely missed. That was great. I mean we've talked about this a million times and you can disagree all you want. And i'm sure some people will the usual suspects but the reality is wrestling booking. It's not that complicated. And there was a there was a period and in fact it was right around when when it was right around the fall of twenty eighteen when everything went off the rails every day on this show i read an old a parable. It's written two thousand years ago and it was all just the most basic logical storytelling. I read them every day. Some people appreciated them. Some people thought it was stupid and they didn't get it well. I can't help you if you're stupid and you don't get it okay. Baby faces heels sons daughters logical. Storytelling anger redemption. I mean this stuff is timeless and you have a clue and you could put together some stories and you know book where like the story. The television demon done being written for that week until five o'clock every time tweet out something like that. I have people go well. It doesn't matter. At least they got it on the air. What are you so mad about like to. Hello yeah the fact that you're not getting the show written until the very it doesn't matter if it's no case show at the end of the day you've got no long-term storytelling. You've got no plan just throwing stuff at the wall. Maybe some people like it. But you're not telling stories and it's infuriating to me whenever i hear well we're telling stories we're telling stories you know you're not telling stories what you're doing is just like a bunch of stuff is happening. It ordered to tell stories. There must be forward thinking. There must be like a plan. There must be like reasons that things happen to play. What's going to happen at the end of the story. I mean hello sopa brian. What are you gonna lead. Storytelling telling what you need is long-term stories that makes sense with timeless themes you want some timeless themes will go read some of those parables that i wrote about go. Go read a story from two thousand years ago from fifteen hundred years ago from five hundred years ago from two hundred years ago. I mean the classics for a reason. Like you could tell those stories and they'll make sense in five thousand years if we're still here on this planet and some guy comes along and he's got some new way of telling stories and they don't make sense and there's no justification for characters do and the good guys do bad things. The bad guys do good things i mean. If you're competent yes. You can write an anti hero if you're competent. You can have a good person who does bad things. But there's a reason for it. This is not competence when you look at me storytelling. They're not telling stories. They're doing a bunch of crap they throw at the wall. Some of it gets over. Some of it doesn't but in general. It's bad storytelling seth ron's on behalf of them. Hasn't he said on more than one occasion. he's not the only one fans. Don't have the patience for long term. They do get out of your seth. You don't believe that you can't confront me as you believe that it's rich coming from a company that doesn't give long-term storytelling. In fact they go in the complete opposite direction and then are like amazed or offended like you actually have some like linear thought to what has taken place before like this. Lana character and how these characters devolve in how they just said the press of a button. Switch it just shows itself the numbers of atrophied to the point where they are and it just it is what it is especially near. Says it Seth thing they said he's an idiot or something like that. Listen seth is not an idiot. Okay what is it's two things. Seth is a guy who believes especially when he was like the main push guy when roman reigns was out. He believed that he was the guy responsible for defending the company. And unfortunately when you have a guy who feels. He's responsible for defending the company and he can't help himself but say stuff about it. That's the most important part. Actually you end up with a smart guy really stupid things. that's it like. That's the end of the story. He's not a dumb guy no but he says it's dumb things because he's for whatever reason decided that i've got to defend this company and i can't help myself but talk about it in tweet about it and you come off like an idiot to stop. He still a first rounder ethic. And he's still going to be missing the time that he's as bad as the character has been times in the stories have been at times. You know very happy for him but you know. The show does miss seth rollins. And that's you when he gets back and full full again. Hopefully they get away from the angle that he has been working in this old messiah thing or at least you know. Give him something to latch onto here. That's a little bit better than what they've done because it still has never felt is as good as it's felt knees on the way out now with it and it just the whole thing with murphy and everything else. I'd like to see th seth rollins get back to what he was characterized. Whatever it is good or bad. You know before this sam from quebec here says i just learned about the passing of patterson someone who is not straight and a wrestling fan and a wrestler. The saddens me a lot. I russell for thirteen years at knowing that he was gay was the best thing for me. Spur says i truly believe pat. Patterson could have booked better show than vince. Yeah guaranteed i mean. Did you without question without question. Anything was is what he provided to vince to. It's not just about. It's just how he interacted with wrestlers. And just all of that sort of stuff. Because vince deserves some credit for when things are humming. Good i mean it's not. He's done all awful workers entire life but you know part of that package part of that brain. Trust that he had when it was working at its best. They put on some incredible. Tv person ears comparing roman reigns in south rollins. And i don't know how to say this without getting people mad. But i mean what i can tell. You is as a pure company guy. Roman reigns is more of a pure company guide. And seth rollins okay. Now you have to believe that if you don't want to but i'm telling you but of the to the guy that comes up is the pure company schill set because one of these guys opened his mouth and says a bunch of stupid stuff and the other guy just quietly lives life in a moment observer. Life at twenty eight. I'd struggled with opiate and meth addiction for twelve years. I didn't said things that the sober me never would have done.

W would still do a show if it's no during a live. Broadcast faded has show. There was sideways rain so there would be nothing cooler. At least visually. Winter is coming with snow falling. Yeah but. I don't think it's going to snow tonight. Slipping around now. No no bad person. Here says brian show you were totally barren corbin and granny was totally mysterious family. Yeah that's most of those segments actually pushing all my buttons interfering dude. Okay listen if i get one carbon. Nobody feels bad for you. Either if i get one more text about this. Wcw allegedly coming back. Oh come on. Everybody stop please. I mean where's the thing that i got. You already ready to vote. Let's see death. Wcw rebooted right so this is the letter that these people. I'm not gonna read the whole letter because like but it's part of the letter it says here let let's just let's just think for two seconds. Everybody what you insure. Fans of the upcoming. Ww reboot that we do. In fact have rights to the original property however world wrestling entertainment told us that we can have only fifty percent of the original wcw meaning that we can have the rights to some of the logos pay per views merchandise and character. Names would well the bro. He's here it should see you get stevie ray how how do they. How do they determine this can only the the wcw properties do you think ww would let them have sold out like what. What's the worst of wcw the navy they can give him. The fat chick thriller. mike awesome. Gimmick i mean what what would what would be for the new rebooted half ass fifty percent. Nobody's burying the lead here. I mean what how hello. People come on critical thinking. Oh come on. How many times told you guys don't believe anything you read on the internet and you know what i'll say it again. Dude don't blindly believe anything on the observer site either. Go check it out for yourself. Now i'll say with the observer site like if we write a story. Pat patterson passes away. I mean yeah you can go look it or whatever but i mean it's a wrestling website. It's a bunch of wrestling stories. Okay what about stuff that actually affects like your health. Your well being your your your whatever your finances i mean dude. You a little bit of research. Don't do it on the whole article. Something come on help me here. Everybody helped me help. All of you read read books. Newspapers things that actually matter okay. Patterson's passing. it's crazy to think all the legends from the attitude era. Vignette that allegedly made vince. Cryer now gone. It said that. Wwe could never do a vignette like this again nowadays because they would do it. In reverse and have their main roster stars put over the legends roster stars put over the legends. Not sure what he's talking about. But i mean it is. I was just thinking about this the other day. So this is how messed up. Everything is so. Wwe remember when they had that thing get these specials on peacock. Look at all these big stars and you look at it every frigging stars from twenty years ago like we got. We got an opportunity to put these specials up on peacock on. Wbz superstars the eight one special about anybody. That's been star in the last decade. All people from the attitude era. Okay so then it comes out. Well we're gonna do a bunch of special. Debbie twenty four documentaries and is keith lee. Live morgan like dude it. They've been here keith. Lee has been here for three months on the main roster and live morgan's being here for a few years and they've done zilch with her. So what situation. You're in where well if you wanna do a documentary where. We actually talk about people accomplishing things. You can only do it for people that were here twenty years ago and then if you try to do a documentary about somebody from today. It's like nobody's done anything. I guess you could do. Maybe a roman reigns recessed rollins or something like that but pickings are slim. It's just a sad state of affairs depresses me person here. Says the general opinion of things like botch mania. Seems like lighthearted fun. But i can imagine some people leslie. Aided how do you feel about it. I feel like i'm in the intro right talking minus five stars. Yes do if. I did some goofy botch a match and it got put on watch many. Who cares enough. Your show botches have made it up there. Have they sometimes in simpson's for me. Well i mean if it reminds you of any songs from your past. Whatever doesn't bother me. I like matthew my first rumble i attended was in philadelphia twenty eighteen the night prior to the event about a dozen of us fans routed the bar with pat finlay and some other officials pad was so nice and so kind he talked and told stories way into the early morning hours. I don't believe he ever medicine ranger rest in power a lot of those here today. Did you ever hear pet sing. My way was fantastic. At that song. He closed out every karaoke session. At the word i heard today was the reason he close it out wasn't because it was just pat patterson and had a respect we finished with pat patterson but nobody could follow pat so he was the main event every time sauce. Awesome person year. Says with tony kahn. Mentioning a possible overrun on dynamite. Tonight you see moxie versus omega going to a draw and if so how would you feel about him. I would feel totally fine withdraw. I know some have said. I would feel ripped off but it's like so you're getting one hour with mclean omega and it goes to the sixty minute time limit on his show. That's absolutely free and you're gonna feel ripped off. Well you can't please everybody. I would be fine with it. Is the wrestling good. The wrestling's good tenants. Good shut up and they're going to give you more. You know just i this idea that a draw you know steal something from you especially on a free show especially with the fact that you will have a book their royal title and how they booked most of what they've done they've had even though you may not love it or not but they have been goals in mind they have things set up and i just. I don't know the people that have complained about what. If there's a draw feeling ripped off. I don't know what to tell you. Maybe you're just not wrestling. Fans i dunno. Well say this. Because i know i'm sure i'll hear from the usual gebrselassie's what about that. Time that there was drawn ironman match and you were so mad. Well if i may. Let's think critically here for a moment. W has done a draw. Maybe two and every time they've done a draw what happened. Well it was a draw and so we moved on with the show w. e. has been doing ironman matches forever. And what has happened. When a debbie ironman matches gone to a draw. well there's always sudden-death so if you promote an iron man match on television and you start at the top of the hour like incompetent and you go sixty minutes and like it's a draw right on the show off the air and and by the way how many times do we see an overrun on an xt countless so. You promised me something that in the past. I've always got a winner and you screwed me. They w does draw it ends. Its draw and they end well historically. That's what they always do. I'm getting what has always been advertised for an aide w draw one one and we move on. It was totally different in annex t. I have always gotten a finnish for an iron man match. They have always had overrun. If the match goes long this one time the match ends of the top of the hour and we don't have a winner and we don't have an overrun and we just don't get what was advertise. Yeah totally different situation. Why do i have to explain to people because they have peanut rains. Punch stegosaur. I must this show and look. It's not like you can't with matches have some sort of angle. I mean to me. This was like the thing with the different situation with briefcase in neutral. You go once. Okay now you did it once fine because you've established this match for a long time with an iron man match lake at least come up with some reasons that all of a sudden you'll be going off the air or will end in the drawer. We don't have the time. It wasn't any of that sort of stuff. There was no explanation for it. There was no nothing. And i just again. It's a different to me. That's apples and oranges with a sixty minute draw. There are a half hour. Draws don't work because the wrestling isn't good. You know it all depends on how great the matches. And i have faith in those guys to go sixteen minutes and be able to be great throughout the whole thing and also to turn it on at the end and if they happen to draw that's fine and if they had looked the only thing that doesn't make sense to me right now zalmay winning. I think it just is not. I know some people think it. It's it's essential needs to happen right now. But i think it's more essential than max mosley needs to hold onto it and keep chugging along here with this run and there's ways that you can beat omega where he's not gonna lose anything he's not going to drop back down to the you know. Oh my god. What's happening with kenny. Omega era people. That are way to worry. Kenny omega his destroying his image or destroying his career. Because he doesn't have the aid of your title or because he's been teamed with page. I mean some of the the complaining. Over how mega has placed himself in. That company is bizarre to me. For what do you mean. Pat was the main event so he should have been karaoke. I like saturday. Night's main event depends on the show. Buddy saturday night's main event. And actually if you watch. Saturday night's main event my friend. And if you follow us on the brain of any show on sundays this pattern changes like in the early saturday made events hogan did in fact go on. I now our period where the main events usually the middle of the show and then they've got some bolshevik mansion the main event that goes one minute and sucks but things have changed bora zubkov duty.

That might have something to do with it. Get out of here. Is one thirty nine today versus. I love how tony kahn. Immediately seeing how. John silver was getting decided to give him more screen time which results in getting even more over. I'm not even going to point out how it would be. If he were in another company and was told to short towel stuff getting over. You imagine the gimmicks that he would have given for john silver. You know he'd be long.

Alvarez and mike zimmer vehicles on the sports byline broadcasting network right alvarez here wrestling observer live mexican wrestling observer dot com. This person says what am i. Most favorite moments with pat. Patterson was him. Gerald brisco would to take on the mean street posse and they tried to tell the posse there in suits and they can't wrestle but the posse members shove them and then patent gerald whip their asses such a great moment. God bless his family during this difficult time them did. All i know is when you think about the career. Pat patterson it almost feels like can't believe we're talking about when he was one of the stooges but it was so good like when you look back at the attitude era. I mean there was some awful wrestling. There was some terrible characters. There was a lot of people that died due to horrible circumstances but the one thing about the attitude era was the comedy was next level. The stuff with vince. And patterson and brisco. And vincent austin and vincent austin and angle and it's just the greatest and it reminded me as i mentioned on the show last night about that deal where like the rock was super over and they kept beating him but he was still over and sort of like for the next twenty years. They've just been beaten all the baby faces and of course there's never been another rock and so it hurts everybody else but they haven't learned that lesson to same thing with the comedy. All of this comedy got so big because of the people doing the comedy the angels. And the vince is and the aston's and the patterson's of the briscoes they were so good at it and for twenty years they've been writing stupid comedy and some people can get some people can make it worth a lot of them can't and unfortunately were suffering through it to this day.
