"R and BI. I mean, what is season? He put together. But this team isn't just Julio, right? They have some real power with eugenia Suarez who might hit you near the Mendoza line, but will give you 30 homers and Cal Raleigh have big dumper. Not only had that big Homer, this is a guy who's giving you power at a catching position where many teams have zero power, looking at the Yankees as one example of that. But this is a team that the lineup is good enough to beat you and the starting pitching is now up there toward the top of the class of the American League. It wasn't the case before the trade deadline, but going to get Luis Castillo at the deadline and then signing him long term, put him with Robbie ray, Logan Gilbert, George Kirby. This is a team that has the starting pitching now to get it done. And we've seen in short series, anything can happen, and I think this team, while it doesn't have the best lineup here and I wouldn't take their lineup over what you're going to get on the other side in Toronto in a short series, it's so much of it is about the starting pitching. And I think they have enough now to keep it really razor's margin between them. Now, as for the Blue Jays, they narrowly missed out on the postseason last year. And before this year, Vladimir Guerrero, junior used a movie analogy to tell us what to expect. I think what we did what we did last year was a trailer. Now you guys want to see the movie. What do Vlad junior and the Blue Jays need to have happen to make this movie exciting and make a playoff run? Extend the analogy. They don't even have a regular season to have been a Montage pretty much. That's all leading all leading up to this. I mean, the real dramatic moment they had was the firing of their manager halfway through the season when they were still a winning team. And they have put things together in the sense that this was arguably the best lineup pretty good argument. You can make best lineup on paper coming into the season. You don't want to face a team that starts off George Springer Bo Bichette Vlad wrote junior, I mean, this team can hit. They still can and they didn't really show it consistently until the second half of the season. And so I think what needs to happen here is for them to be able to figure out their starting pitching situation. And to have Kevin gausman, who's been really good, Alec mino has been incredible. I wouldn't want to take this man on. He is every bit of where they list a 6 6 two 85. So big boy throwing gas. He's a lot of fun. Another guy who will be in the Zion. The lower Zion conversation deservingly so. But who's their number three is Jose berrios? Berrios has been underwhelming, disappointing, especially this season, but he has a good track record. So I think the pitching is going to be the bigger question because I think they're going to hit. Putting on your prediction hat once again, who do you have winning between the Mariners and the Jays? Give me the J's. I think the bats are going to carry them enough to where even if they don't know exactly what's happening with the game three starter. They may not even get there. So the Mariners certainly can stay in this one. It's going to be, I think, a great pitching matchup and at that point who can crack who and I'm just trusting that Toronto line up more than I do the Mariners, I think this one is going to come down to. Now the winner of this one gets as their reward, a matchup with last year's World Series runner up, the Astros. They're the number one seed in the American League, one 106 games. Tell us about Houston's attack. And are they the clear cut most dangerous team in the American League deal? Yeah, yeah, clear cut. No, I really think it is. This is a team that probably deserved more to be spoken about more on the glowing terms we reserved for the Dodgers these days. They are there every season. You may have strong feelings about how they got to this place, having won a World Series a few years ago, but with a team they have today, they are for my money the best rotation in baseball. Justin Verlander is healthy. He's going to win Cy Young framer Valdez deserves more respect in the baseball world. Lance mccullers just came back the back end of the season. You have Louis Garcia, Christian Javier, Jose arki. I would trust any of those guys to start a postseason game and they're going to be there for. This is a team that is going to frustrate a lot of people this fall and they're going to sit around and wait for who they have coming, but yes, I think clear cut favorite at this point. Coming up, the playoff picture and predictions in the national league. And can anyone topple the mighty LA Dodgers? Shantaram is the new original series from Apple TV plus.

Okay, Stephen, now we'll head over to the national league and we've got another team that ended a long play after out the Phillies in the postseason for the first time since 2011 up against the Cardinals who won the NL central. So first Philadelphia, they were third in their own division, but does this strike you as a team that could make some noise? Oh yeah, I mean, they may be the noisiest team there is as far as fall off the bat. This team can hit this team was constructed to hit and hit extremely well and hopefully figure out the rest of it. And this is the season that you may recall way back in the memory bank started off with Alec bohm. Their third baseman, you know, giving a bit of an FU to the crowd after they bronze cheered him. He made a couple of errors and then he made a routine play and they Bronx cheered him and he didn't appreciate that. Like ball made three errors and in the course of the three hours the fans were really getting on him at citizen bank park to the point where he murmured to one of his teammates DD Gregorius about how he didn't appreciate the fans booing and that he just wanted out in a clean version out of Philadelphia. I believe in hate this place. It's Dede.

"Homered in their first game with their new teams and resume gallo or bright back in the race until his bryant with his co. giant soul. I think we. I think this is shaping up to be a very exciting down the stretch pennant race. Remember we only had a sixty game season last year in the playoffs. Were expanded in twenty twenty one. So it's going to get dicey I want to take a quick look at some of the teams that participated in the trade deadline. And what it actually. What did it do to their odds now. I mentioned last week. I was very fond of with the blue jays. Did they are not if the today. They're not in the playoffs but they are creeping up towards potential wildcard spot and they added jose berrios a great starting pitcher in two closers. Brad handy left-hander in walking soria right hander. The blue jays were only twenty two to one prior to the trade deadline and for reasons. I don't know now. Twenty seven to one to win the world series. There's probably some value there because as they closed down the stretch while you're holding a ticket for twenty seven to one that may turn into a forest fire if they don't make the playoffs you can hedge back against that by fading the blue jays and you know listen loss teams get in there all the time prior to the dodgers breaking the mold last year in the last eleven years prior to that no team better than ten to one odds and actually got the world series in one. This feels like it could be one of those wide open years. I just mentioned the giants. The ad kris bryant. There's still nine to one and boy. Did they pull out a wacky game in milwaukee tonight terrible. Beat if you had the under the total was believe eight and a half to two one heading into the ninth game ended nine six and extra innings for the giants on top. Got to keep an eye on them. The chicago white sox to me are becoming a major story. In when you look at the pitching they added you pair craig kimball with liam hendriks gives them the best back in bullpen. And the game the also outta gentleman named caesar hernandes. He's a veteran. he's a second baseman. He brings depth steadiness their second baseman l. Him and he has a groin injury. He suffered just days before returning after returning from the season long injured list. If he can't go you've got another player right now. The white sox are prime disoriented the playoffs. Obviously barring something. I can't foresee like the sixty four phillies with jean-marc. I don't think the white sox are going to be on the outside looking in their seventy one to win the world series. The athletics he dude every year. They don't mess around. They got sterling marty from the marlins and they gave up a pitcher that you've probably never heard of his lazardo for the rental yang gomez josh harrison from washington. And the i am telling you. It's going to be an absolute fistfight in a phone booth. As far as the american league and which teams are going to end up in the wild card again..

Six innings six shot with seven ks inning. Six shots seven punch. That feels like a good feels like they needed. They needed it man. They need it like. You're not gonna get the cc effort like gimme the ball ten minutes after just through the last pitch of the other game. I just completed like you did for the brewers. And you're not going to get that at a burrito. Now they're not asking for that how to brioche right now but to get that the sixth inning showpiece like. That's gotta be a huge huge relief for that lineup. Like those guys were thinking. Now we ride this offense that we're able to create the stuff that we're able to generate here. The shit's gonna matter. It's not going to be in vain. We're gonna start making some your boys. I would love for that performance to incite that friendly competition. We see happen sometimes between starting rotations. Were guys just say. Oh that that's sixth-inning show. That was cute. Note i got seventy two thirds dialed up. let's go yeah. I think There's one other thing we need to on. And that's joey bottle. Who still barry green hat. Let's go streaking. How many in a row corruption in a row. Nine over that streak. The reds won five of those seven games. Joey votto and that seven-game stretch had an opie s pushing two thousand eight his his his opie s was the year that the cubs won the world series before two thousand sixteen and not to mention like. I believe at the beginning of that stretch. Maybe it was a little earlier. Like veto pump to jacks and then after the game was trying to fuck immerse was running. Well he said that but didn't him he was he was running like a baseball camp. Right there is. I think he would stroman both like not at the same camp. But stroh like went out and shoved like eight innings dominant and then after the game was pitching at a baseball camp putting on a camp. Yeah for you. Auto is like following. Bp kids and like doing kids yeah. He homered on july twentieth..

I don't think you should be allowed in if you're wearing a y you're speaking to someone who will make for twenty years if you're wearing a helmet with horns and you've got a dead baby on your shoulder and all this stuff out dead baby to baby with an eye patch. Yeah it's dead baby on your show. That should not be allotted so fi stadium. This is a classic joint. It's coming we're bringing chains were were bringing cecchi. We're bringing everybody. You've got chucky. Unfortunately yeah now. Twenty nine coming up next for you john. I've got some some new news about both the dodgers and the angels. You're not gonna like the angels news that's coming up next for you mason and ireland ten. Espn a little update from david singer. Bob my birdie. He says it was a one hundred thirty seven yard. Par three i remember. I hit an eight iron. And i want way right. So what did you hit it in with. I hit it in with a fifty six wedge. Now fifty six agree. Yeah okay gosh you some strokes got it got it in the air i still. I cannot wait till. I hit a green in regulation. I'm i will be so excited. I can actually hit a green on the par-three it. So i've got a little dodgers and angel stuff here so starwood with this. The dodgers are in on a guy named jose berrios and so are the padres. Both teams are in on. He's going to be really popular on the trade market. He ranks ninth in major league baseball with one. Hundred twenty one. Who's he played for now with the twins he's got a three forty eight era and a twenty five percent strikeout rate so it is but he's a guy that is pre arbitration. The twins are still going to try to move. So it's gonna be it's gonna be all the usual here. Are the guys that the here. The teams dodgers are competing with for every single. One of these pitchers yankees red sox. Giants padres astros phillies there. The teams that are expire. You're leaving big one out. Who's that the mets have a blank checkbook. The mets are gonna get in on all these deals. And they're they're that. Steve cohen the hedge fund guy there. The mets are going to be what i don't understand is the angels need pitching more than anybody every time a pitcher comes up. Why aren't the angels in on it. Here's a thing they're out of it this year. They have no chance that came out of the all star break when foreign went four and six so they fall onto eleven games back in the american league west and the angels are now considering becoming sellers. They have three pitchers that teams are interested in. There's alex cobb whose thrown really well in fifteen starts this year and he's very affordable there's andrew heaney who teams are interested in and for some reason they had him near the top of the rotation and then ratio ag- laziest who's They're closer is also probably the second best arm available after craig kimbrel so. The angels are likely to be sellers when we get to the deadline. Although here's the thing with the angels they desperately need starting pitching and what they really need is a number one starter. Just haven't had one for the past few years so i would give up anything. The nationals asked for to bring insures and then signed him for the next two years when going to have trout. Otani jared walsh all these great offensive bats and saving trout. No tiny in the playoffs. But you don't even have anybody close you're saying by unsure or even out completely out of koranic for this to get him for because he says scott. Boris says he won't agree to waive his no trade clause unless there's an extension involved so if the angels went out and signed shirt sir to an extension. There's our number one starter for next year. Now they're in it but mace number. One starters are really hard to get you know. The dodgers had a handful of them this year so they made it look easy but if let me ask it so let me ask you something. Though the angels again jon morosi reporting they are potentially going to be sellers there. Five and a half out of second wildcard. Yeah they've got Four teams in front of him. But they're going to get my truck back. If you had somebody like max scherzer the rotation. Don't you think you're gonna fighting chance to get to the wildcard one hundred percent. And here's the real thing if there's a window on everything and joel madden's really smart. Yeah i don't know if this perryman nissen the new. Gm the guy that came from atlanta is one of these guys. That's going to sit on. Its hands and gopher some long play here but who. You've got shohei otani in his prime. You've got mike trout in his prime journeyed. Walsh and david fletcher. Have come out of nowhere and it'd really good players this year. Yep you have no pitching. That's why you took twenty pitchers in the draft but trout in otani. Don't have time to wait for those guys. You took in the draft to develop if you could get a guy like sure. He's an absolute game changer. For the angels. I it just makes so much sense to me. I don't but but every report i read is that it's it's looking like the mets. It's looking like the dodgers. It's looking like the padres it's looking like the giants nobody needs a number one starter more than the angels nobody and like lou the dodgers for example all right right now walker bueller could be a number one starter on any other team. My dad and i'm going to start around. The dodgers clayton kershaw is a number one starter and has been going to the hall of fame. Yup if julio rius was on the angels he'd be their best starter he lesser. Who are is one of the best pitchers in the league. Right if like even trevor bauer. Even though i don't think he's going to be available or dustin may when he gets healthy to go to the angels they would immediately slide into that number one starter role. That's how desperate the angels are number one starter and yet every time. A big name comes up like this. We never hear them. I don't get it Here's the other story. I wanted to get to which i think is fascinating as the mike di giovanni report. I think i'm saying his name right. Mike the times forever really good. Riser reported over the weekend. The two people with knowledge of the dodger clubhouse stein namic say a majority of players do not want. Trevor bauer back under any circumstances under any circumstances. So even if he's cleared of everything would you. would you want him back. Not if you're knowing that players don't want him back no but what he may need if he gets exonerated because mesa if he gets convicted of what. He's being accused all right now right now. There are no charges. So i shouldn't even say it that he's being investigated. If if these charges turn out to be in like if he's charged with something and he turns out to be guilty. He's going to be in jail. He's going to be able to pitch for anybody. But i if the dodgers players have already given up on him. The dodgers are too good of a team in their world contender every year. They you should just train them. You won't get fair value but you you should trade him. I don't know if anybody will take them. Though john asks making forty million dollars right not anybody can take in boise in a forty million again next year in baseball. You see that scene in moneyball. Where dave justice geico says. Well you're paying me seventeen million dollars so you must've wanted me and being says david i'm not paying you that the yankees are paying half your salary. That's how much they don't want you. The dodgers would have to pay some of that salary. Yeah i just don't know who's who's in on trevor bauer. I mean he's just an ass right but he's entitled to due process sure and if you take the what tells me a lot is those players went back no matter what if you take his off the field incident. Well let me just ask you. Do you think he's turned his last pitches. A major leaguer. I don't know not as a major league. He's thrown his last pitches dodger. So someone's going to take a chance on him. Yeah somebody y hope. The dodgers hug either the cubs and the yankees and other people have shown that they'll they'll take guys with baggage. Do you think the dodgers can void his contract..

"Atkins i'm sure. Every team is looking at craig fumble right now so the cups of a lot of leverage in terms of what they're going to give up on them they're going to try and get a little bit more than usual from other teams. That depends so desperate. Teams are going to get and that goes back to the point of the front office would ross atkins cave or would ross atkins fold and give them more. Probably not i. I doubt it because of what they have done so far. Unless i could be wrong. It definitely gonna. It can go either way. But for craig kimbrel and fifty seventy area like you guys mentioned a whip zero point six six. This guy has been dominant all year and Besides of his two years with the cubs before this year. I don't really look too much just because obviously two thousand nineteen was when he was signed it almost july and i guess you jumped right into things. You didn't really have a lot of time to get going. Twenty twenty one twenty twenty. So i don't really look at his first. Two years with the cubs is a much of a concern and going back to his boss and san diego even atlanta those dominant numbers in their consistent. Forty six saves forty two saves each year. He said You know saves at least over thirty thirty and over. So it's definitely good to see and he would be a good piece of this bullpen. If you move on ramana down maybe a setup man in the eighth inning. It's a good one two punch and even Somebody in the seventh inning. Like maybe trevor richards or even adam cimber. It's a really good one-two-three punch that could potentially be on the rise. And of course. You can't richard rodriguez as well. We talked about him last week. The problem with him too is. He's going to be expensive just because he's under team. Control until twenty twenty four so he has arbitration next starting next year and then going up to twenty twenty four. He's gonna cost as well so basically with these relievers if the jays wanted to go after people of this high-calibre You know it's gonna be expensive it just it's going to. The question is how expensive. It's going to be and i. I don't really think it matters between rodriguez and kimbrough. They're both going to be very expensive there. So there's so many other names barrios. Jose berrios that also maybe circulate back towards the jays says the the twins get closer trade online. I'm sure they're going to be I don't think they've really announced anything yet..

"I think you know the guys that we have seen them rumored to be involved with besides the guys they've already acquired on. We gotta rumor earlier today that the cubs are selling harassment. Danny saying that blue jays are in on. Craig kimbrel that someone. They've talked about that someone they've interest in he's obviously of what the blue jays needs a reliever. He is one of the best in the game. He's been doing it for years and years and years Some people argue. He's going to be in the hall of fame. Who knows but that doesn't matter for the blue jays. He's a really good reliever another guy. That doesn't really fit the bill. The blue jays need but apparently they could be interested in an Take it with a grain of salt. Because from john hayman but i'm nelson cruz designated hitter for the twins. Apparently he could be a target for the blue jays. Who knows how you know truth worthy that is how accurate it is but again nelson cruz. Craig kimbrel two guys that we've seen we haven't seen the blue jays on starters besides that one mention of jose berrios from jon morosi months ago. So i'm skeptical that the blue jays will add a starter unless it is someone who's under team control for awhile i if it's a trade and other trade with the marlins say a lot of great young pitching prospects and and pitchers that are already in the majors under team control for a while I'm skeptical that the blue jays go out and do much besides that. What do you guys make of a star with the nelson cruz. Rumor because it is kind of off the wall and a lot of people have not been happy with it. Because i mean you look at bluejays offense. It is one of the best offenses and major league baseball. That is not the weakness of this team yet. Nelson cruz would only improve that. He doesn't even prove feeling because he's a d. h. But you know forty.

"The two teams that don't win the division to be the wild card and awfully good team is going to be out after one game this postseason if that plays out, Buster What do you see in terms of the three teams that the Giants Dodgers and Padres as what they could potentially do before the deadline to try to strengthen what already is very good rosters for each of the three Yeah, We mentioned the Mets and how the Mets have demonstrated. Look, they're going to be aggressive. I think the same thing is true for the Padres. They are all in on this season, right? And so if we get to the deadline, and there's something available that they feel like, can be difference making. I think they'll move. I tell you what the Giants have been the sleeping giants and they are the sleeping giant in his trademark it because they have all these expiring contracts of guys who are part of that. That the championship run last year for Brandon Crawford last year for Brandon Belt, only one more year for Buster Posey. So they have a ton of payroll flexibility moving forward, and if they want to flex that muscle, that opportunity is going to be there for them. You know, they've done a great job of finding pieces and getting some of those veterans back. But day to me are really dangerous team. And while the Dodgers historically have been the most aggressive team in baseball to trade deadline trading for you, Darvish one year trading for Manny Machado another year You do wonder, uh, if they'll the fact that they won the World Series last year is going to affect their aggressiveness. You know, feeling like, Look, you know, we've gotten it done. We've already got the highest payroll in baseball. Do we really need to step up? Um, I do would say that's about the Dodgers. I think even without Trevor Bauer They're good enough to win. You know, they have enough depth. And let's face it that we're asking questions about Trevor Bauer and what he would be on the mound moving forward anyway, without the sticky stuff because since the crackdowns happened, he just hasn't been nearly as effective. Last one Buster, who is the one player that come the middle of July to the end of July that will we will be talking about the most player or pitcher who will be in the most demand come the trade deadline. Craig Kimbrel, the Cubs closer, I think, you know, you know, it's interesting. There's very specific markets and limited markets for position players. Everybody can use a reliever and a team. I'm watching most closely with Craig Kimbrel, the Boston Red Sox Had him before Alex Cora had him before the Red Sox have been excellent with their bullpen. They've been the surprise team in baseball this year. No question about it. And if they want to go for the jugular, adding Kimball when he's throwing so well, uh, would absolutely be a great edition, but I'm sure that they're going to have competition for him. When the dust settles, and we look at all the Cubs trades that they make the most return. I think they're going to get on for any player is going to be Kimbrel because not only is under contract but this year, but he's got a club option for next year, and I'm sure that would be attractive for anybody get a one year obligation on a really effective reliever. Oscar as usual Awesome insight. Thanks so much for the time. I appreciate it, Chris. Good to talk with you to buster. Only our ESPN MLB insider bringing us the straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk Wireless. No contract. No compromise. Interesting. The Kimbrel He believes will be the one that is most. In demand come the trade deadline. Another name that you think would be there, too, is Jose Berrios of the Twins as well? Well over the weekend, we found out who are NBA final matchup. Will feature and it will be the Phoenix Suns. Who of course got there last week. And the Milwaukee Bucks, who wrapped it up in six over the Atlanta Hawks this past weekend is Trae Young came back but did not have nearly enough. And you know the books are so interesting because they enter this as heavy underdog, considering that Everybody seems to assume they will not have Yannis for at least part of this series. If not the majority of it in the series, the box open up As a underdog of minus 1 80. William Hill, Caesar's sports book. I think that is entirely entirely fair. I've been completely It's hard to say this Completely underwhelmed by the Milwaukee Bucks this offseason, then, in particular, with the honest because think about this, we are talking about a two time M V p That now seemingly, is Compared more to Chris Middleton that as his teammate who was a decent number two coming into the postseason. But somebody that clearly the Bucks would rather have the ball in his hands when it matters, the most for he and through holiday. Not that Yannis has played poorly. Hasn't played poorly. But what is clear is that Yanis Only has a certain set of skills that are not going to really translate beyond being a player who wants to be multifaceted. He's not a great shooter by any stretch, They begged him to shoot from the outside. He's not not a good free throw shooter and I think in this post season Even when he's been on the floor. That's been a big theme that yes, he is capable of going up and putting out 35 if he is the right match up inside. But will there be enough for him? To be able to do otherwise. Will everybody else be able to pick up the slack? They have been.

"I think we're getting a pretty clear picture that most of these pictures were probably finding some way to get a better grip on the ball, and we're going to see some natural drops. We're seeing offense go up a little bit. We're seeing pictures suddenly not strike guys out. I mean, Jose Berrios didn't strike out of battery yesterday, but I mean, then strike out about that's your bed. Your best telltale sign the strikeouts are the things that raised the alarm. So the strikeouts should be something that you look at. As much as runs. Yeah, like, what's the drop like I got? Yeah. We as the strikeouts coming back down in this period of time. If the hits equal the amount of strikeouts are hits above the amount of strikeouts. That's what you have. I know we can't you not. You know, you're not supposed to look at one data point, you know so like, no, no, no, but it's one that can indicate and with with a series of other data points, like one can maybe draw conclusions. I shouldn't like single out the White Sox game from yesterday because It is. It's like this one data, but But like to what? Your Hussein, look at. How many balls were in play yesterday? Look at Jose Berrios, not striking anybody. Giolito. I love him. And I'm not trying to be a jerk. But like he had one strikeout in his last start. I mean, there could be something here where we're seeing the effects where these pictures just aren't As comfortable or they've got to work through it. They've got to get used to it, and they're not generating what they were generating as recently as one month ago because we're seeing things kind of balance out a little bit in the early data in a game of split second timing. Where she centimeters dare I say millimeters make the difference between the ball being out of the park and the ball just being a fly ball to center field. You know, in that game, we take that amount of spin rate you take it off, become more hittable. Walls don't do crazy things in the last you know the last quarter. Yeah, Yes, yes, It means something. It means something Even though it's only 96. On average. It still means something. No, That's absolutely means a hell of a lot because it's not just the fact that it's the fastball. It's a combination. We've talked about this a lot. The fastball, slider, the four seam fastball slider combination. They spend the lethal to a lot of good hitters like they cannot. Account for both been weaponized, right? Like you said, they weaponized you can you know there's this, You know, tunneling with the release point of a picture. You have good hitters who can follow off? Good fastballs and keep themselves alive and counts and spit on good sliders, knowing that they connect if they can, you know, react to a fastball, but it's the elevated RPMs that makes it damn near impossible to try and Come back both right? Yeah, that's where it gets hard. You know, it was like and I was winning. Schwarber has gone on an absurd here absurd since the June 3rd memo. Someone like a month he had. Look, go look at the month of June that shorter, just someone like Joey Gallo. He's been out of his mind since these and that's what I'm watching for is look at all the good hitters where all of a sudden are becoming good hitters again Over the last two or three weeks. I do want to track what happens to the strikeout rate..

"So as i said i would look to fade guys with decreases on their fastballs. That have limited arsenals. I would look to fade guys that you noticed some pretty big spin rate declines from. That weren't very good pitchers or aren't very good pitchers. If you're still a very good pitcher you still have a good chance of being a very good pitcher but if you're not a very good pitcher and you've got decent because of this spin rate decrease under some unscrupulous means or something like that. Well then maybe that's something you want to take a little bit more of a look at so a lot of stuff here with all of this spin rate discussion and these different types of things. I am going to run through here and talk some pictures dating back to thursday that have had spin rate decreases. But i need to put a lot of context to this on. Today's show so i will be doing that. And it's a big reason. Why i'm not doing the down. The line segment just to make sure. I elaborate a lot more on this especially because this is the week where major league baseball is allegedly going to crack down quite a bit. So with that on thursday dylan cease again. The spin rates were down a little bit. Did have some velocity upticks however. This start was in houston. I'm gonna talk about that. Keep that in mind. I'm gonna talk about that here in a few minutes time. Shohei ohtani a guy with some pretty big spin rate decreases in his last start also velocity some concerns there but otani a guy that you know again you wanna keep a very eye on for some of those injury indicators and all of that also thursday rich hill with some big spin rate decreases for the race and richhill somebody who popped up on the On the radar because he talked about how and they'll be didn't do enough to protect pitchers with this whole thing going on well that seemed kind of suggestive. That richhill was probably using substances upset. That the mlb didn't back up. There is that we did see everything. Dropped him although his velocity was down as well and of course you worry about the injury indicators with richhill with all of the things that he has in his background friday brad hand down once again. Nick witrh grin for the indians Down from their bullpen. Karen shack is still down. Nick sandline is still down all of that other unions bullpen does have some concerns in terms of some of those spin rate guys. The pirates bullpen. As well sam howard down yet again. Kyle crick same thing for him so guys. In the indians pen the pirates pen the braves bullpen. the red sox bullpen. Talked about these bullpens. A lot those are bullpens that concern me quite a bit but trying to pick on some of those teams looking at some full game overs and stuff like that. James cappelli for oakland down quite a bit going to yankee stadium and something. It's been kind of a challenge here. I think with some of these pictures. Is you know accounting for the environmental differences for example gallup ralian. You know he goes from oakland. Where it's you know that sort of that marine air that marine layer. You know the thing that we saw at the us open. I know san diego much further south than oakland but you of get some different conditions along the water. Then you get in say the bronx then you get in a lot of these different ballparks. So that's been kinda difficult here trying to cut through the noise looking at pitcher spin rates on a day-by-day basis and with that in mind. Jose burritos for the twins of velocity decrease for him as the twins. play against seattle. And i've noticed that a lot of starting pitchers and specifically road starting pitchers have gone to ballparks with humidors and have seen decreases velocity and spin. So i've seen this a lot in texas and in seattle and in houston and we saw a ton in arizona with the dodgers. This past weekend here so something is happening in these. Ballparks with the humidors. And i don't know if it's a slightly heavier baseball. I don't know if because of the increased storage in the humidor if he i don't know i don't know what is happening here. Somebody much smarter than me. Some of the background in physics would probably be able to explain this to me. I don't know if the humidor balls are slicker or something like that. But we're noticing. At least i've noticed here. That in texas and seattle and houston and some of these retractable roof stadiums. That have these humidors. That visiting pitchers are seeing pretty big spin rate decreases. And i don't know if this is substance usage related. I don't know if it's environmentally related. I don't know. But what i know is now i have to kind of draw a line through these because we're seeing a lot of them kinda pop up here and i think that they're also sort of skewing the analysis of the foreign substance. Crackdown where we're seeing a lot of people talking about you. Know these big spin rate drops and the drop. Cross the league and all of that to me. It looks as though we're getting increased noise from those retractable roof stadiums. That have the humidors. So those are things again. I said you really want to apply context to it's all you just want to look and say well. Jose berrios had a spin rate. Drop up got to feed him now no because that might not happen in his next. Start not pitching with that humidor baseball. So that's something i've been trying to look at. Here's something i actually found this morning and nelson. We're going to look at a lot closer. If i can just to sort of see if this is creating this extra element of noise. And that's the hard part about these spin rate decreases is that there's so much noise there's so much context it has to be applied to each one of these starts. You know because you've got that strong relationship between velocity and span if a guy's velocity is down a little bit to spin rates are going to be down to be throwing harder. The spin rates might be up. You know it's a very slippery slope here and it's something that just adds another layer of difficulty to betting on baseball and i talked about this on one of the previous shows. Here baseball is. It's not a fun game right now. With with where everything is with your players going up against each other with hitters being upset about these substances and how far pitchers have taken it but then their teammates are doing the same things and you know you got the labor stoppage. It's almost inevitable now. It's a challenge. It makes it very hard to handicap the game and so know. I'm just trying to do everything i can do. Apply context and sort of analyze and read through these things but it is very difficult and now adding this extra wrinkle here of the humidor. At least from what i'm seeing. What the recent returns on the data. It's very frustrating. It's very hard to try. To pinpoint a lot of different things corbin burns's finneran decreased but again pitching in colorado. So not as extreme as his previous start at home but down in colorado. So you know. Just another one of the wrinkles. Jose urania decreased velocity and spin for the tigers. Second straight start. This has happened. I don't think he's healthy. He did have an i l. stint earlier this season. I don't think he's really healthy. But at the same time. Alex cobb with decreased velocity and spin. And we're seeing this a lot here at angel stadium where we're seeing a lot of decreased velocity and decreased spin so i don't know if this is calibration with the system. I don't know if this a tracking issue. I don't know if it's an environmental thing. I know but it's getting very frustrating. To look through these spin rate things as well and sort of half to apply all of these different layers. All these different caveats to looking at all of this stuff like for example. Trevor bauer his. Four seam fastball spin rate down three hundred and twenty one. Rpm in his friday start against the diamondbacks. He's still through seven. Shutout innings struck out eight. Walk three but that was another one there with chase field and that's one that kind of got me thinking okay. Something is up here with the humidor and with spin rates. And honestly i feel like i remember seeing something about this in april earlier on when i was kinda tracking spin rates to look for injuries. All of that so again. Just another layer you say kukuchi big drops for him on friday. Another layer with that retractable roof. And humidor so what. I'm seeing here. Is that if you can't use some of these grip agents spin rates velocity. We'll be down in places with humidors so this is probably going to increase offense in some of these bad pictures parks. We've seen seattle actually be much better off pensively of late at home. Maybe we see in texas ally on the under tonight so hopefully it doesn't happen tonight but i do think that may be kind of a byproduct of this crackdown on substances. Is that in these humidor stadiums. I think that we may see it. Increase in offense. We saw a lot of runs. Scored that dodgers diamondbacks series. At least on sunday. I of the section pretty good in the month of june. The pitching staffs been really bad. So i think there's that i think playing overs in retractable roof. Stadiums may end up being angle that we can make some money on so that would be. Houston that would be seattle. That would be texas. it'd be arizona. I believe marlins park is.

"Some guy might sneak something in 34 weeks from now, But Darvish tonight definitely going to be watching that game after the Cubs and And and Indians play, because, yes, I think you're right. Those guys with great spin rates. Let's keep an eye on them. Well, that White Sox team was lives against the Astros. That is, uh, injury street on ineptitude Avenue That was on the cross streets that I saw. That was, anyway, the Astros want to win. They were able to win. So, Jesse, would you say that this is an anomaly? Or do you believe the injuries are catching up offensively? I think the latter is true. I do. I think it's anomaly in terms of the starting staff like I'm not worried about the whites exportation. They got beat up a little bit. A few of them were do let's face it. Guys aren't going to go through the season with 13 E R a cease and Lynn I'm talking about, so I'm not worried about the rotation, but yes, I think it caught up with them. I've said since January, this team is short a left handed back. When they signed eating. I wasn't thrilled. You got off to a decent start. Came down to Earth. Now he's hurt. I still think they need left handed. Help Jake Lamb did it A homer yesterday, Moncada came back at a couple hits. But for the season this team is hitting to the lefties are getting to 17. 2 17. Now they're O. P s is better because Grandal walks like there will be piano But big deal. You need some more damage from the left side. I mean, if the Cubs were to sell, Jack Peterson would look so good there. How about Schwarber Five home runs the last couple of days like There's some names that should be available out there from the left side. That's my big takeaway that when you have these tough writings, and then Novell does picture when you have these tough righties, you need to run into a couple ones. And they weren't able really to do that other than Jake Lamb over the weekend. I think they did get up. Little exposed offensively. Now, Look, this is a sweep in New York. This is a sweep in Houston. I've said like it's good. They need to play these games. But next time, you know, they need to start winning some of these on the road to get ready for October, But this this was a buck kicking. Tony Lewis has said as much afterwards. Hey, you know what? You know why baseball will never die. Happen. And Jesse? You know why? Because of the infusion of young talent. We're going to see wander Franco up here pretty soon here for the for the race number one prospect in the game. How good is that? Jesse like that, and I've been watching some of the College World series seeing Al Leiter's kid Jack, lighter from the right side. This is why baseball will never die because you always see what's next. I love the young talent 25. You're coming into the game, and it's It's getting younger. And it's coming in quicker, more and more, starting to Andrew Miller, the Cardinals last week he's on the executive board. They've got this big Ciba coming up. And I give him credit. He's an older player. The picture Andrew Miller, He's They are going to fight for younger players to get paid quicker, like if you have If you're the working here, like Brian in 16, you don't just get a couple $100,000 raised right. You should be able to make a little bit more money. Before you get to free agency six years later, So actually, a lot of these veterans are going to fight for the young players to get paid quicker. And the big thing is, they're going to fight about that service manipulation time. So if you're ready to come out to make the team out of spring training, you actually make it Instead of being held down, So it's a good observation. J. Hood young players. The game has gone so much younger, and they think if they pay the young players a little bit more, there's still will be some dollars for the veteran players. It's just like They're trying to come up with the right formula where the 33 year old isn't pushed out of the game. Yet the 22 year old does get paid a little bit sooner. Before we let you go in terms of trades, Rick Hahn said last week. Yes, we're looking and we absolutely will be aggressive. Tony came out, said I completely trust the front office. I do think they'll add on How long does jet let this just kind of linger out there? Oh, he'll go through the All Star break like this. There's no doubt so he's not gonna even try and add a competent, decent arm And I'm not talking about Cole Hamels, who's thrown in his alley. Right. You talk about masters if you can get them. Yes. No, he will. But Jose Berrios. Yeah, I don't think anybody's right barriers. I don't think anybody maybe the twins would be ready to trade July 1st. I just don't know if he can pull it off. Before July. Let's put it that way. That's his his brother in law. Make the call, right. You don't know what you don't know where you're going to be. In mid July, you could stand. I think he's got to let it let it play out a little bit longer. But also there's other teams, calling the twins for barriers to let's not forget, but that guy's controllable you've got another year. We tried this. It f in Chicago. Are we trying to win or not? Well, until they mean when they traded garbage. They weren't until they got the first place. You know, more recently, they weren't so now that maybe they are I mean, I'm just saying camp. It's not that easy. Other teams are calling for burials as well. And those teams might Be more desperate. They don't have a world series in their 27. I'm talking over Jesse. He's trying to explain. Just get your book out there and let him explain. My beak wants Jose Berea. Okay, But Jesse is given an explanation. You're interrupting its June. What other big trades? Have you heard in June? It just doesn't happen. Because there's no other first place team that has his crappy rotation. There's plenty that want. Look at the White Sox. There's plenty that need him. There's plenty that needs starting pitching. I'm just saying, Let's get to July That's trading season. So I think it goes towards the All Star break before something biggest pulled and then from there to the end of the month. That's when the action happens. Find how it normally happens by Jesse I don't like your answer. Have a wonderful day. But I do love you. I'm sorry, Jesse. Have a great day, man. He hung up, say he's bad. Say, why did you do that? Let me Do you go? Do you go burials? Arborio says you're it's Maria's He says Burials. Well, it's very, uh okay. Great costumes, is it? You know you, jen. As a geisha. Well, okay. Is that Juan Soto? Or or they're so told Jesse brought to you by the pride stores. 15 Chicago area locations experience the Pride stores. Hey, Ben Simmons, Bulls fans. Yeah, That's next. Barrios. This is calf and.

"I'm like. I think the average is gonna come now for sure. I don't think there's any way could sustain a to ninety batting average. Think he's probably more like two forty five to fifty but considering the league average is like two thirty six can click. that's actually a-plus. He'll still be generating positively. There should also probably hit on a forty one percent homer to fly ball rate slightly. Almost one of every five is leaving. I don't know that that can continue in fact. I'm certain that it cannot. I mean for a full season. The top guys can be in the twenties. I think even maybe some earnings. I'm gonna look it up from from twenty nine thousand nine our last full season but yeah i see some thirties here at the very top and thirty three percent by yelich thirty one percent by nelson cruz and piano lonzo back in two thousand nineteen so forty percent is it's just not happening so this leads to the next question. Are you selling in trade leagues because you can get a mint. Fifty homers five steals to ninety one average twenty six years old selling I mean i would definitely dangle him out there. I i wonder how much you can actually get for him I think there'll be a lot of people are scott gold of the breakout. And so yeah. I mean i kind of see what's out there You know. I mean the biggest issue with tyler. Neil in the past i mean outside of you know kind of just the the. The profile of striking out too much is been playing time. But he's got that locked in now. So i think it's reasonable to expect that he's going to keep some level of this up polygamy some of the rest of the season projections have him for twenty more home runs. You'd that's huge. So like twenty and five the rest of the way thirty five ten season i mean. Even the batting average is that they have the low end is to thirty nine. Which as you pointed out would be around. League average like is not good but it would not is not gonna kill you especially if you're getting hundred numbers in six steals which steamer has projected in. He has like the perfect kinda swing for this. New ball is what we're seeing is Hitters put loft onto to try to get it out our fallen short but it's the it's the hitters. That are kind of kind of doing this. Line drives with power. That are getting home. Run so i. i do think it's possible. He hits you know another eighteen. Plus bombs rests. The lay would combine huge power. So i mean i would want a really good deal come in from it even even if the even if the batting average drops off like you're still going to get a good amount of power and you know and enough speed or another missile basis to really It's really matters. So when did you take. You take Tyler molly think that's fair the djing they need hitting kind of a kinda marriage there. I was thinking like maybe an offer for free. I was one find a way to bring him up. i think he's on. The list is no maybe not no. I wanna find a way to bring him up anyway. That's great because you were big scoop them up on the cheap when everybody was jumping off understandably you decided to take that risk based on the finger thinking okay. They're talking that it's not full season. Let me take them at their word. And so you got some cheap cheap cheap summer. One forty seven era in his three starts here. I kind of have him in the molly range. In fact i have them just four spots apart. So i'm with you there. I think that that's in line with it too. That's the kind of pitcher in the guys in between them. Are chris bassett. Robbie ray and jose berrios one of whom we're gonna talk about later d. Find all five of those guys would be something that you would be entertaining for. O'neill yeah i think so. I don't know if you can get all those guys. But i would definitely kind of the ranger be shop type and obviously you have to find the right fit if people have those pictures in their offense is fine. They're not going to be wanting to make that move. But surely you can find a pitcher in that general vicinity. Maybe a max free. That's a little bit more of a bilello now anderson angle. Get that four your timer. O.'neil offense is cooking you. Can you can afford to get rid of player like that. Because that's a big loss fifteen five but if you desperately need pitching. I think you can go out and do that. I really like o.'neil. I do think there'll be some come down from this. But i think it's still gonna end up being a really strong season. I'm believing in a breakout overall. Low sorry to random you go. I'm pressing the button. Jeez what's going on to video that. I opened like four days ago. And then you don't click on the tabs so it hasn't loaded yet and then i closed one another tab and that was the next one so it's like well jeez the crap out of me sorry anyway can leave it in. That's where we're at on tonio. Let's go to a couple of other pieces hitting news here before we get into a bunch of pictures. That's cameron was called up for the tigers. And i'm a little bit excited about. It is just because i wanna see. I just want him to get some time to see if there's anything here. He came up last year and a was very bad. It was fifty nine point appearances. But it was ugly ugly ugly twenty-six. Wrc pause. oh guess when he had a thirty two percent strikeout rate and three percent. Now he didn't have the other skills of tyler neo but that plate profile can can give you in the minors this year. Cameron is kind of crushing at triple a. He has a three thirty eight. Four hundred five fifty eight line with two homers and three deals but it's three steals on six tries so he's running but it doesn't exactly know what's going on with that going to be thrust thrust into duty for the tigers generate any deep league interest for you das- cameron in a little bit. You know we're we're talking ale only or deeper mixed leagues Is there is power and speed in the profile. I don't know how much power really shows in a kind of question lake. How much playing time. They're gonna get them. They'll beat us. Think yeah. I think he's going to go in for derek hill. Roster resource hasn't updated yet going to the i l. so i think it's just the strengths there. I'm exams gonna play center. Yes i mean. I think yet in in a deeper league i take a shot Especially also anti fast where he's going to be just extremely cheap here for the next week or so at as he gets his first action you know probably be men scores on fan duel draftkings and stuff self care. I think he's he's definitely interesting and he was hot in aaa had at a slower. Start season i think he had an injury But i mean hitting three thirty eight four hundred five fifty eight with two. Iran's three stolen bases in his first eighteen games. Yeah i mean this interest especially with the pedigree i mean. He's mike cameron son for those of you. Who were were little bit older and in remember my cameron. So i'm a little interested. But i don't know that i don't know how much of it is going to translate yet to the majors. He really struggled in africa around. I'm just helping to see something as a tigers fan. And that's why cameron fan. Frankly i liked mike cameron so i hope i hope it sun can deliver. It'd be fun if he can fit in piece here. They jacoby jones. And like i said derek hill got hurt. They can get rid of missouri anytime soon. I'll go for a grossman cameron by do outfield with derek hill fitting in when he gets back just to see what's up like four guys that are actually well. Grossman isn't young. But he's signed and he's playing well but then the other three guys would be young. Let's actually see what's going on here like i know. Zara is extensively young ish. But he's just not good at baseball and that's a key factor when you're playing. Baseball is to be good at no more. It's just like why does not meet it because go look at. His numbers is a forty eight. Wrc plus okay. I've waited on that guy for years in texas Jumped off last year. Thankfully didn't do anything. I was like okay. you know..

"Up the baseball savant game. Feed on our start touring forward was a big week in the big leagues boost. Four is it fair and now from. Mlb bro dot com. Here's jr gamble. The scrappy san francisco giants have surged past the glitz and glam dodgers and the new breed padres in the nfl west standings given a division three teams. That could legitimately win a world series. Jr is it fao or fair to say that the nfl. Wes is the best division in baseball. That is a foul. it's still the american league east. it's a dogfight in that division. I get it the padres of the fancy new toy with techies junior company. And they're exciting and media. Can't stop talking about how to junior compares with the all time greats like hank aaron and babe ruth at this juncture of his young career. But we get it when new girl comes into the school the head. Cheerleader isn't the most sort after anymore but she's still a one. Let's not forget. She just not getting the same attention. The american league east remains the only division in baseball with four of the five teams. Have records over five hundred. Nobody's a slouching division and even the last place orioles the only team in the division with a losing record their tough out after the three california teams in the national league west. There's a significant drop goal to the arizona diamondbacks colorado rockies who. Let's be honest folks. They're just both god awful right now and once. They start unloading veterans later in the season. The basically be automatic ws for anybody that plays them especially the three powerhouse teams within their division. So i'll say the best divisional race in baseball. Yes it's in the top heavy. Nfl west but the best division in baseball remains the american league east with the yankees are in fourth place. The red sox blue jays and lashes. Al champion raise obviously will underrated entering the season. The beast division remains the least as it's been for some decades now give or take a few seasons take out papers. It's time for trash. Talk twitter with your chance to trash anyone or anything in major league. Baseball are this week's trash comes from at the smack and he tweeted me. This are nuff already with aaron. Boone and the yankees. I can't watch my team. The yankees need to make a move boon or the gm cashman need to go. The bronx deserves better. I'm tired of watching this and quote that came from j. d. at the smack on twitter. And if you want your tweet. Read on trash talking. Hit me up on twitter at rob parker f s won't when rob was a newspaper columnist. He lived by this motto. If i'm writing i'm rippin. Let's bring in a writer of broadcaster older new right now. Let's woke amid craig. Calcaterra formerly of nbc sports but during his own thing these days he has a daily newsletter called cup of coffee. And we're gonna talk baseball with craig. Craig thanks welcome to the podcast. Thanks for having me on no doubt of so many different things to talk about couple teams pepper. You about and find out. Let's start in the al and tampa bay rays. Who just i mean. They've traded blake's now. Everybody thought they do the towel. And they went to the world series a year ago and here we are in june and there in first place game and a half ahead of the red sox going into wednesday can they sustain this or they really this good. They are really good. And that's the thing about the raise. He mentioned them getting rid of lakes. Now you mentioned they got rid of charlie morton. It doesn't matter what the raise their the epitome of the next man up kind of team in baseball. You don't see that baseball very often year about that football basketball but the are definitely that way The depth of that team is absolutely incredible. tyler glasnost future cy. Young winner as the starter. So they're not gonna miss flakes now. richhill forty one years old. They're getting a new level out of him this year And then the real. The real power of this team is the bullpen. They are always five or six guys. Eat in five or six guys who are better than the top two on half the teams in baseball and this year for the first time in a long time. They're getting a lot of offense to getting a lot of power. They're they're They're getting on base at probably the best clip in the league. If not the best. They're definitely up near the top solid team. Probably the strongest team top to bottom in the american league this move to the al central. We all know the white sox. They survived that little storm with tony. Larussa mercedes and the clubhouse not feeling that great about larussa calling out the young player. But i wanna talk about the minnesota twins and what has happened to them. Byron buxton is coming back for them but when he went out they went straight down to the bottom. They're in last place in the al central even below two detroit tigers who are rebuilding. What happened there craig. Just a complete across the board failure. you know. The starting pitching did not come through j half as been a disaster. Matt shoemaker has been an even bigger disaster. Those were a couple of guys that really needs to step up. I there as jose berrios. He's he's good but he's not where they need him to be right now. The bullpen has been terrible. They've also been extraordinarily on walkie their record in extra inning games. I don't have it off the top of my head but it's like really really bad. I think one one extra inning game out of like eight or nine. They lost a lot of one. Run games if anything has gone wrong for this team. It has and like you mentioned buxton. He is distraught. Stirs the drink there and losing him for so long Makes this lineup. so much. Easier to pitch to a huge problem for them They're going to be a seller at the deadline at this point. I don't think they're going to be able to dig out of this hole. You're going to see someone like nelson cruz on the market and just it could be a retrench ear lot of talents. They're going to be fine again next year. Probably but i think they dug themselves to people. I'll guess is craig calcaterra from the cup of coffee daily newsletter. Let's go to the national league and the nfl east. I don't know how to metro mentoring first place but they are. I guess it's all pitching twenty nine and twenty four coming into wednesday Do they have enough offense. Will they be able to survive this. I know the pitching has been outstanding. You know the worst thing that happened to them was in that first month beginning of may when they lost all those guys the injuries they lost conforto. He's still going obviously but they have lost Pete alonso for a while they're still out jeff mcneil And francisco lindores has played well at all and they're still in first place. I think that's the thing that's going to tell me that. They have staying power. They took a big hit and they did it at the right time. They did it when the braves weren't doing anything The nationals are clearly not the team. we thought they'd be the phillies have been a mass in a lotta ways A good time for the mets to get hurt. I think if anything they're going to be stronger lindores not going to be a below average hitter all year. You not two hundred to twelve hit or whatever. He's doing right now. That is going to be sustainable. He's gonna do better he's gonna tear Conforto is gonna come back. And he's gonna be alright pete alonso can say about him he. He's been fantastic but he has another year over what he's doing now. I think the mets are pretty formidable. And and look. Let's let's not undersell. I don't believe in you know in all the the good juju bad juju and and all that stuff that's around the team but getting a new owner getting a new mindset getting a new front office. It's a big deal for this team. I think the the defeatism that you often see with the mets. That is the other shoe gonna drop..

"That's something crazy and unbelievable. But i told myself and told jose berrios. Hey if he throws me a cutter inside. I hit it to left field. If he throws me the sinker middle in. I might hit to the middle. If somebody comes in i might hit it upo. Sino almost nailed those predictions as hard as he nailed those baseballs i think he maybe got the sequence of which pitches he was gonna hit out and where he was gonna hit them out slightly wrong. I think he got some of them right. Some not so right but still apparently he had predicted that he was gonna have three homer game so suddenly. I'm thinking okay. This is Miguel snow ability. And i was trying to look for other predictions that he had made to see if they had all come true and i found one that did not actually come true so his ability to predict baseball events is somewhat limited. I found this story in the star tribune from. I think it's late january twenty fourteen and this was before had made his major league debut and only played sixty seven games above class a but he said that he intended to play for the twins at the major league level. That season right away. He thought he was going to make the team out of spring training and his expectations. For how many home runs he was going to hit. It says when it was pointed out that his home rentals have jumped from twenty and twenty seven to twenty eight in two thousand twelve and two thirty five last year so didn't need an interpreter to explain what's next i'll hit forty five this year. More games he said maybe fifty five you never know. And he also said that he'd have hundred twenty walks. Maybe one hundred fifty confident guy well as it turns out about a month after that story was published in that prediction was made. He hurt his elbow and he had tommy john surgery and he did not play policies so that would quite come true but i guess maybe just that he has confidence in himself and so he predicts that he'll hit forty five homers or. He'll hit three in one game or he will turn a triple play just seemingly at every opportunity. So i'm gonna chalk this up to just being a prolific prognosticator more so than oppression prognosticator. I think that that's a fair assessment. And it's like. I said last time you know when you're a professional athlete. I think that you are under tremendous pressure all of the time. It's very hard job. And so i think that if you have to boost your confidence by saying i'm gonna do it and you find that sort of self affirmation to be either useful or motivating then more power to you know. I'm not going to hold people accountable for their predictions being right unless they're constructing a projection system for me. Yeah this is more media. Criticism may be than player criticism yet. Feel free to predict whatever you want if gives you confidence booster or it's fun but if it's going to be reported after the facts that you predicted those things then i need more complete accounting to know how often you were predicting these things how often you're actually correct. Just one more bit of banter. Jesse winker is on a pretty incredible role right now. Yeah he hit. Three home runs on sunday for the second time this season i think he is the twenty first player to have multiple three homer games in the same season. It's happened twenty five times. Sammy sosa did it. Three times in a single season the others are all two times and of course it has happened more often of late with the homerun rates. Being are so this is not quite as uncommon occurrence as it it would have been. We were just talking about galvano hitting three homers in a game. No wonder he is predicting that in these days of high homerun rates but winker has done it already. This year at duval did it last year. Who get nelson cruz. Debate in two thousand nineteen. Mookie betts did it in two thousand eighteen end twenty sixteen so it happened fairly frequently but winker is just an unbelievable tear just all season now. He has the highest. Wrc plus anyone other than letting your and vladimir guerrero is basically leading the league in everything now. The messianic bat is here. it's been wonderful to watch. But right behind him is jesse winker with a one eight. Wrc plus just behind vlad's one ninety five. He's batting three fifty four twelve six sixty five yup in fifty games in three hundred twenty one plate appearances us one homer behind vlad for the major league lead and he's basically like surpassed his previous single season highs in everything at this point. Of course he hasn't really played a a full healthy season. He's topped out at one hundred. Thirteen games three hundred. Eighty four plate appearances in previous seasons. And he's always been a pretty good hitter yankees a career one thirty seven. Wrc plus guy and was well above average coming into the year but just hadn't been healthy hadn't been in the lineup all the time and he someone who tends to get platoon to allot 'cause historically he hasn't hit lefties very well by men. He is mashing in. Bring this up. Not just to note that he has mashing but also because we are recording on tuesday. A few hours before winker plays the brewers and starting for the brewers is adrian. Hauser whom winker has absolutely owned in their past match ups and this is like one of the the more had head better versus pitcher ownership lines. I think going right now. He is faced houser thirteen times and he has a twenty three eighty five opie s in those thirteen plate appearances. He has homered five times. He's gotten eight hits and he's struck out a couple times. But that's your six fifteen six fifteen seventeen sixty nine slash line. So we don't know yet what he will do against hauser on tuesday. Perhaps i will update at the end of the episode but good times ahead at least based on that admittedly small sample track record that i don't really put any stock in but still it doesn't seem like jesse winker needs any help to hit these days. I have two thoughts about this. The first directly related to hauser. Is that while we know. That would use a thirteen plate appearances. The we know that that doesn't mean anything right or it doesn't necessarily mean anything right. It's thirteen pleaded grins. You can't say instinct where you kick conclude conclude anything based on that. I suspect though. I have a suspicion that head to head matchup. Statistics are one of the stats. That players believed the most in. I would like to assert that. I think that it is probably the sort of thing that both of these guys are painfully aware of. Even if on some of i don't i actually don't know anything about either of their sort of propensity to engage with statistics zoe to understand the game. So i don't know if if they would look at that and like intellectually. Be aware that it doesn't really say anything definitive but like emotionally. Be kind of either gleeful at the prospect or trepidation about facing you know each other so i don't know if that's the dynamic that is at play for one or both of them but i suspect that in general players are very keenly aware of who has gotten them and who they've got right in the past and that they perhaps put more stock in it than is useful and i don't blame them because i think it is difficult to intellectualize away from feelings and if you have had a guy hit a bunch of home runs off of you for instance. You're going to be conscious of that every single time. Because it makes you grumpy negate the ball and you mash it around while he's running the bases and so. I think that that is my first assertion. The second is more of a question. I'm curious if this phenomenon exists for you. I think the jesse winker is great example of this. I think the jesse winker part of this is as you say that he is tuned in so you see him less often than you might. Otherwise but i think that he is a player who's poor defensive. Reputation has perhaps impacted my understanding of his game in toto because you are correct to say that like smartly platoon. Sure but in the right situation has been a good hitter over the course of his career rate in in a year when the reds offense last year was just really not very good at all he was. He was certainly a bright spot. Radio one.

A strong at the bath. Column me and taylor rogers so the twins will be tough. The white sox will be tough. I think the indians will still be tough they. They are also arguably or definitely in baseball shane bieber. He's lights out the door which is going to hurt but they also brought in eddie rosario over from the twins to get jose ramirez some protection. So don't john out cleveland. I think the royals will soar some runs. I don't like their pitching and that's about it for the division. Forget tiger they're going to be horrible. Is the west. Finally after years in years of predicting the los angeles angels of anaheim going to do some things. I'm predicting that the laws angeles angels are gonna do some things and mama shohei otani. I'm telling you. Mvp right now. Why because they're gonna have him bits and they're gonna have him get hit record the angels here. Here's the thing i see. What that for the angels in my opinion to get past the astros or the as we'll need show a tiny to do what you're saying. I mean he's going to have to win eighteen games and he's going to have to hit like an all star if he does that. Hey i would like to see it..
