"They're turning over like nfl. Coaches are that to manage these young players. How do you manage the player of today. How do i manage a team of some old and some new. And and how. Do i rebuild the team and manage a team through that rebuild. He's putting together one heck of a resume salt. So you're you're right. Maybe now for the first time if a deal isn't done and you hinted at this our email last night like walkway right. They haven't gotten a deal done and he ends up. Maybe doesn't end up winning manager of the year but if actual executives in baseball look around and say okay who managed best team sticks to higher scott away from this team roster sticks around for a playoff push to three four weeks from now with thirty thirty six games to go. I mean you're you're the lights at the end of the tunnel here. You're three games back as we tape right now in the wildcard. The red sox who you're going to face this year you're going to get to see them going to see the as a couple teams that are sitting there ahead of you know by the way. You've played the as brilliantly this year. You're in their head they can't close you out. They can't knock you out finish you. And you've been like lazarus multiple times late in any and found ways to win your a team with some interesting players in pieces. It's maybe maybe you're the mets you got money. Would you throw it. Scott service. I would i absolutely would what he's done starting with the kevin mather thing and then continuing throughout this year honestly. I think it's some really tremendous tremendous management bullpen. What he's done hanging around with players through their ups and their downs marco in particular and and and giving guys every opportunity right and this is a season twenty twenty one season and it was a season of exploration right. Where we're going to explore tie. France can look like oh by the way he's turned into a gold glove caliber first baseman and his ryan davis tweeted takeaways. May which can do in baseball but where he was banged up with his wrist injury. If you've seen those numbers not they're absolutely bonkers. She's been phenomenal. phenomenal defensive. First baseman ro in the clutch gene. Right as he's come up with some of these gigantic hits in big moments. We've seen the to in the last couple of days but he did it earlier. In the year i remember. It was april even he. He came up with that big double blanket on who that was against but it was a walk off double early in the. i mean. so you've seen kind of a bit of everything from him. What a great trade that was. You've done this without evan white. You've done this without kyle lewis. You've done this what you're nick. An over forty despite some of them. I mean and that sort of the last part of this conversation that i'd i'd like to have quickly here. Which is you know. We're three quarters of the way through the season. Roughly and i think the biggest thing. I've come up with in watching. The mariners is that you have to have veterans to win and baseball. The difference between young guys and veterans in baseball might be the biggest any sport. It just it especially i mean hitters pitchers maybe a little bit different. Young guy can come up. And if he just has blazing stuff he can the catholic and you can have some early success. I think as a as a pitcher. That's not to say that no rookies are. No young players have success but in general you just see the difference like who's more talented. Some of the guys. They have on their team. Now the celtics. And some of these younger players or kyle seager mitch snider. I mean i would argue that. A county allenton wasn't the experience. Yes the as game monday night. Just perfect microcosm of that. And not the jake. Bowers is mitch. Hamburger kyle seager. But he was a young guy. That talented kind of flamed out and look at his at bat look at his at bat. Kill nick and kell. Raleigh young talented guys have shown some flashes. Changeup away gets both of them. What is due to count. What is what is that experience watching those guys in front of you. Slowing the game down being able to slow the game that to me. You're right mike. I thought about this since you texted last night to us i think slowing the game major league game baseball down enough to be able to function is the hardest in process. I dunno hockey. I don't know that well enough told her. I mean look. Experience matters every sport passive of life. Don't get me wrong. But i honestly think that being the rookies and really young players in baseball are at the biggest disadvantage close into minor league level. Either you're not even getting close to what you're seeing pitching wise at the major league you can dominate double a. And triple is we saw killing in raleigh. And those guys those guys you send those guys back to tripoli. It's like hitting off and i think while you can sort of joke and say they've done it despite the young guys which at times has been true right. The other side of it is while they're winning. These young guys are getting the experience to eventually become veterans. I mean you can't. They're going to have to go through. They're gonna have to go through it at some point. How great that. They're getting to go through it. Why because i see some of these will doesn't matter when jerry's doing steaks 'cause hannigan seger and and france are the only guys doing anything there. There's some fairness to that. They are clearly carrying the team but while they're doing that kalmyk and raleigh and fraley and whoever else you're throwing out there are getting legitimately valuable experience. So that toro toward pretty good but he's but he's also not a rookie. He's been around this game the league now for a couple of years and seen it. You're getting you're getting kalmyk. And you're getting raleigh to that point. And hopefully they turn into the kind of players they're supposed to but they can't do it without the opportunity to play in the big leagues and how nice that. It's not coming amidst loss after loss after loss. Nor are they being counted on remember. Justin smoak came in and like week two. He had to hit fourth. Because the teen could hit. You don't have to do that. That's what i hated about. Counterfeiting leadoff at the beginning. Put this guy eighth or ninth in the order and tell me stinks and let them learn. Because that's the situation he's in right now taking your daughter to college it is like there's you know you wanna make it as comfortable as possible. You love him to death. The you don't want them to go through lonely nights homesickness and everything else but guess what they have to they have to they. They've got to go through it. There's no other way around it other than to experience it and grow from it. And that's what these mariners players are doing. And then hopefully you know wonderful college environment that hayley's found herself in an a supporting cast and grow in develop you that That you know when you have grown and developed and have that experience you're all the better for it. It's funny i. I know that wasn't yours. You love your smoking six packs a day. It wasn't okay. I know i know i know. I don't mean that the idea being of being driven to college is different for me. And i was there by myself right wide. I'd like what is going on. But my buddy main. Jane decorate your dorm room. Molly did no. She didn't have pictures and mirrors and rugs and everything else no. I just got an a plane and landed in had to like find my way. Whose bizarre my buddy. Dave though his his mom literally wouldn't even drive him to the airport didn't drive he'd lives in manhattan and his mom's decide. Yeah i gotta work cab. Thinks cab.

"Pretty much single handedly on vlad for the most part with some nice supporting pieces of speeches from simeon and and others who are in that lineup. So yeah it's it's it's vlad team right now. I know the last few years we've gone back and forth to bowl. And i think we're back on vlad. That's not a bad problem to have no look you tossed out names. You're right. siemian has been on a tear. lord is starting to heat up. He's starting to connect tae oskar has been like. He has his moments but still he's been consistently good. He hasn't fallen off in last year wasn't a fluke hasn't fallen off to vote when he's on he's on. This team is solid and we still don't have spring in the mixed. Think about it. Like i know they. They just dropped six in a row. I get it it's going to happen. Those happened yeah and look. You're not even if if we're in playoff contention in september. You're not even going to remember these games unless they really do cost us. Remember these games. I just look. You've got to be confident. With what vlad he's doing because you're right. He is leading this team to how he's carrying himself. He is an example. The players at hotter. Carry yourself because eight. He's having fun. That's the thing he looks like. Just a kid having fun playing baseball and you're beer league softball. I know it's not a kid. He looks like he's just not even going to work. You can tell. He loves what he's doing and he's having fun doing it and again. I am so impressed with the defense. At first the way he's picking balls out of the dirt the short hop throws by bo. Just picking them up no problem making those. I think there was a throw them and he got his foot just on the bag in the race series to get them out. If i'm not mistaking sure if that was a rowdy but still he bentley's laid out for yes first base and completely sold out and still somehow managed to keep us. It's been very impressive. The vertical reach the he like. This is what happens when you lose forty two pounds. Yes i'm not gonna lie. He's not looking like he's too far behind like justin smoak or something like that. Blue jays for defensive first baseman. I and you know. There's no reason that if he continues on this kind of a cliff that people shouldn't be thinking about him for possible gold glove performance. You tell me right now. Who's do any american league. And the american league who has been quintessential first baseman. That has been doing anything better than he has been. It's hard to name somebody. I i agree. He looks like a natural first baseman. That's the thing it fits. Yes he it's like forrest gregg belgium and you're all of a sudden finding field. Speaking of you didn't play a bad for his base was brother. Julie's doing nothing but first base runs in the family. There you go. This is just a taste of what we're getting in vlad and you know if he does put up..

"And line drive in the center of a said that's gonna score leaders as long is gonna have a least a double, and now the throat a third not in time, Colts and Wong ends up Tripling in the left center field and the ST Louis Cardinals lead three Nothing in the second inning against limb bloom in the Brewers. So, Greg did you do like a deep dive on all of our highlights Finding any Kolten Wong highlight that was available so I had to siphon through, however. As Doug from bearable, alluded to. It's not that hard to fight cold water highlights. They Cardinals play the Brewers that was against Josh Limbo. He's like the only guy who he's not just the only cardinal. He's like the only guy in the history of mankind. As far as this past season goes that had any success against against Devin Williams to Yeah, I'm gonna try to find something where he's up against Williams. If not, there's again plenty of long Island to choose from. I'm gonna go defensively. Next segment, So keep that mind. Oh, okay. We're looking for Alicia. We just break right now. So we can hear that suit that Yeah, I kid I kid. Let's get to a couple text messages. If you want to get in here, you could do so on the AC unit Mortgage talking text line. 85561616 28 5561616 20. Mike Colorado. I am very excited Cult along is a brewer last season, had a couple big hits and plays against Milwaukee and over the recent years as I recall it, so we just referenced Hey, said. I think he hits better and I hate cause it Miller Park. It's not Mel and then he put sand I am famine, the parentheses. Nice job, Mike. So what happens with testing hero? What about curious? Can you play third Cy? Do you think Justin here goes to first base? I absolutely do. I would be shocked. I would be absolutely shocked if he goes anywhere but first base because you just can't do it. Colton Wong doesn't play. Any position, But second, I don't think you're going to ask Holt along to go over and like play third base. That's just not going to happen. He's a Gold Glove second baseman. He's won two gold gloves at second base. You're not gonna ask testing here or to go play third base. He's got that arm. You don't want him making that long throw Just in terms of him Surviving the If you don't know he had he had an army issue they dealt with in college. In fact, his last year at college he on Lee was a designated hitter. He only hit he never played in the field because he's got a knish. You that could go bad in the moment. If it goes bad, he's gonna need surgery. So There is some benefit to him being over at first base because it will limit the amount of throws. But right now, the short throw from second is about all you want from from testing hero I get third base is a question and I, Luisa Arias absolutely can play third base. We talked into Robertson last week. Maybe they still make a move. That's the If you want to look at a like a positional area right now, where they're still the biggest question Mark. It's clearly third base and They have candidates on the roster, and I think it's worth mentioning, like We do the thing I baseball fans do this, and I'm not trying. If you do this, I'm not trying to put you down. I'm just saying it's not the way the Brewers do things because I do the same thing as well. You here first basement you go. I can hit 30 home runs getting drive in 100. Yeah. You think middle infielder Okay, can that get on base could be at the top of the order. Can he hit for average way designate different types of production at the plate based upon the position in which they play and you know, you got third baseman. You want a guy that's got a little bit of power right? That That's generally what you think That's not how the Brewers think. The Brewers don't think that way. The Brewers think that we need X amount of production. And we don't care how it is divvied out. Maybe you got a second basement hits a few more home runs. But you got a third baseman that it's a few less like that's the That's the example. They don't. They don't say. Okay, we got to fill this position with a guy who does this because he plays that position. They say. We have to feel the team that can produce X amount of this. This this and this and they go from there. That was part of the conversation last year, and look, we don't have to relitigate last year's off season. Last year's off season was not a big success. Ah, lot of the players that they brought in did not work out last year when there was a Justin Smoak whether wasn't Erik Sogard like those guys did not perform. To the level in which the organization expected them to perform. But specifically with like an Erik Sogard, who going into the year looked like he was going to be a guy who was gonna Who knows he was competing for, like an everyday third basement kind of job. Well, can you put in Erik Sogard a third when he doesn't hit the home runs when he doesn't produce the way you wanna produce from a from a normal third basement, and the Brewers would tell you That doesn't matter as long as the entire team the entire roster when you put it into a pot, and you poured out the whatever you're pouring out, has enough production across the board, so We consider that that the long answer Mike to come. Louise areas play over a third. He can We don't think of it like we have just conventional baseball people don't really think of him as fitting the hitting profile of a third basement, But I think the Brewers will tell you that doesn't matter as much to them as it might matter to other organizations. 85561616 28 5561616 23 yanking on mortgage talk and text line You can tweet in as well at Matt Paulie on air as we continue to discuss..
Milwaukee Brewers designate Smoak for assignment, add Vogelbach
"To play first base for the Brewers moving forward. I think we got indication based off. The comments made by David Stern's Tio Tom had recorded the Journal Sentinel earlier today, but we don't know for sure. Now, when the Brewers that designated for assignment Justin Smoak, and at the same time bring in another first baseman, and Daniel Vogel back, I think it's there's a logical thing that says, OK, smoke out Vogel Bach in he's going to be the guy over at first base. I don't think it's gonna work out that way. Because just based off the comments that Stern's made earlier today, it really sounds like Jed Jerko is going to be the guy who's going to be given the first opportunity to play first base a lot. Not There's going to be the every day guy, but he's might be the closest thing that the Brewers have to it, and Jerko is mainly face left handers. This year. There has been There's a good chance that you listening to this right now might be kind of throwing your hands up in the air going Finally, because I could tell you just seeing what I see on Social media. There have been a lot of people that have been calling for Jerko to play more often. In fact, it kind of goes back to a bigger question, and we've discussed this before on Brewer's extra innings. When you've got historical data. And then you've got, like right now Data. How do you How do you juggle those two things against each other? And that's why Jerko has played so much against left handed starters because from you look at what he's done over the course of his career. A and he he has done has been very successful against lefties not as successful against righties now this year that hasn't held up he hasn't been given is many opportunities against right handers. But he said, Okay, success against right handers this year and he's been okay against ah, against lefties as well. And that's that's kind of where where it's been at for this year. Now he's going to be given an opportunity to face righties and lefties. That's going to be his job. I would think again. I'm just kind of reading between the lines and seeing what David Stern said earlier today. It really feels like Jed Jerko is going to be given that first opportunity to be the guy who plays first base a lot. It's a
