"With Paul and bikinis coming up and just drives me crazy where we are, Sarah, with the voting. What do you mean, what drives you crazy about it? All of the shifting standards for what it means to be a Hall of Famer, which I don't think is good. I think we're guessing more and more, you know, every year we have the votes and the logic pretzel that the writers go through in making their choices. I don't understand, you know, Paul himbo and I are going to dive into that. And talk about where the fault lines are and there are many. It's like every year they just add more fault lines. And today, as you reference Taylor, we're also going to be talking about a couple of general talking with a couple of general managers who are taking their shot, which I love. You know, we talk a lot about on the podcast about tanking teams, front offices, designing failure. Well, today we'll be talking with Kim ang, the general manager of the Marlins who's using the resources she has to try to contend in one of baseball's toughest divisions and also Perry menacing, the general manager of the angels who's done a great job turning over the pitching staff there. Speaking of Kim earlier in the last week, she completed a trade with the Minnesota Twins acquiring all star Luis arise who is great at making contact. He's a good offensive player. Pablo Lopez goes to the twins. Angel's owner Artie Moreno announced earlier this week that he's no longer exploring a sale of the angels, we're going to talk to Perry about that and about what that means for him and we're going to be talking about Shohei Ohtani and where they stand in the contract negotiations. The Kansas City Royals agreed to terms with the role this Chapman on a one year deal $3.75 million. Some news about Mike Clevenger, the pitcher who signed a contract this off season with Chicago White Sox is under investigation by Major League Baseball for violating MLB's domestic violence policy. The league's investigation stems from allegations made by a woman, a Libya fine stead who accused the pitcher of physical and emotional abuse toward his three children and their two mothers herself included, Feinstein has been in touch with MLB, investigators since last summer, according to the athletic, but mentioned her allegations in a series of Instagram stories on Tuesday.

He said that the scooter came back in fine shape. And as we talked about at the top of the show, Scott Roland elected to the baseball Hall of Fame.

"Right there is why Tampa did admittedly we are not the strongest trivia. I can't remember. We got no chance dude. We couldn't come up with we got too many conversations going on at once. We couldn't come up with who, yeah, we're not great tribute team. So, you know, with that, with those categories, we're never going to win trivia because we don't know college too many we don't know college football. We really don't know what TV. I'm a go on Wikipedia and do some preparation. You're just going to go to Wikipedia dot com. Yeah, I'm going to go sports like me, where are you going to go to Wikipedia? I'm going to go to final fours. I'm going to go, there's a list of all the teams that were in there. No, but it's not always that. I know he'll be like, all right, name this player based off of his path through his career, and it'll be like box, raptors, Knicks, nets. And then these guys are and it could be any time period. Justin Jones. And you're like, what the fuck? Oh, a guy must have played here and then he went there and then he went to this college and I don't have any of that. I don't know any of that. Well, are you good at pop culture, TV movies? Yeah. But sports, especially college sports were just lacking. We're the only team in the dozen that just gives up on like four categories. Well, my thing is that I've been so deep in golf for so long that I've been so focused on golf that I just want to have that much mental energy for all the different sports, whereas if I wasn't so focused on one sport, I think I would be much more like dad. I was the biggest sports fan in the world until 2013, and up until 2013, I got it. 20 14 to 2022. I'm Barron. That's when I started at barstool. That's when I was focusing on work as opposed to like sports every day. So my brain with that time period is mush. See, I used to know, as a kid, I knew everything about the NHL. I knew every player I could tell you the top 6 defenseman and probably the top 12 forwards on every team in the NHL when I was probably from like 8 years old until when I was like 16 or something. And then since then, I just genuinely don't. I don't watch that much random sports, I watch something at football, watch Monday Night Football, but like I'm very rarely sitting around just watching sports and that's how you miss all of that, like just plugging into your brain. Video games used to help me with that. I hope every single sports video game growing up, so then you know every single stadium name every single player every single coach every single jewelry franchise mode. I knew the stats going in because they would flash this guy had this many goals a year before. My dad used to be like, how is this 11 year old? No, like, the right Fielder on the Kansas City Royals. And I'd be like, oh, she's like, I won't be the show. I just play every single day.
"kansas city royals" Discussed on Big Time Baseball
"Well, let's go ahead and take a look at the exact opposite of what we loved on the NL side and everything we hated on the AL side. Astros are back in the World Series, they went 7 and O, I can't stand them. I don't know how Philly's gonna beat them, but I've said it before already this October. But here's the thing, there is one bad omen right now. And I'm gonna keep saying it is many times as I can. So it actually becomes a thing. There's only two teams in the history of playoff baseball in the wild card era that have gone 7 and O into the World Series. 2007 rockies? 2014 Kansas City Royals. What do they have in common? They both got their asses knocked down the World Series. And they all lost. Yeah. That might be the thinnest of strands that you're hanging on. Begging with that one. You know what the funny thing is that for me, it's hard to continue to hate them because of dusty. You know what I'm saying? Like, and quite frankly, there are a bunch of new faces that weren't necessarily a part of. I know some of them are still there, but nevertheless. It doesn't specifically. Is dusty is kind of puts a shiny, a shiny coat over the Astros for me. Yeah. He does. He really does. He really does. Dusty might be one of, I mean, if there is a major league manager Mount Rushmore, dusty baker, there is a legit argument that you can put dusty baker on that Mount Rushmore. The guy's taking multiple teams to the World Series he's led. A half dozen teams to the playoffs, but the one thing that's alluded in his entire career as a manager is that World Series ring. And I want him to have it more than anyone in the world. I just don't want it to happen. H on it. This might be his best shot though. I know. You know, it might be as lonely shot. It very well could end up with an H on. I mean, listen, here's the thing about the Astros. If I'm being honest, if that coming into this year, this would be the year we saw the Astros take a step back. And I don't know if I have ever been this wrong about something, because not only have they not taken a step back. You could argue this is one of the strongest astral teams. Maybe other than that 20 was 17, 2017. That was a killer team, right? This is probably the best version of ASTRO's since then. And it's mainly, it's mainly it's different this time because they are a lot deeper from a pitching standpoint. And I think they've ever been. And they're run right now. That 2017 pitching staff couldn't hold this pitching staff's jock on its best day. Like, let's just go through it. We got a game one. We're gonna be seeing Wheeler taking on Verlander. Thank you, injected at being my base. Here is a fun fact though. Verlander is currently the ASTRO's worst picture by far. Their entire bullpen has given up what a total of three earned runs this October. They're every starter has thrown a good quality start in every single from brave Valdez has been unhittable. Luis Garcia has been un hittable. Mccullers, it's one after another after another, this team feels unbeatable. Well, to this point, they literally have been unbeatable. And listen, it's going to take something like the magic that the Phillies have in order to beat the Astros because even if we put the pitching aside, we go on the offensive side of the thing of the ball.

"kansas city royals" Discussed on Frank Michael Smith Show
"Like we need to have people batting three 50 and 400, like the Ted Williams is. So I'm saying, juice up their bats, give them a little bit of bigger bats, and turbocharge the batter. Turbocharged the bats, like maybe not quartz fats necessarily, but increase the barrel width or something. So I want like the worst hitters on teams to be batting like 300. There are the kind of skinny barrels. I mean, yeah, it's supposed to be hard. Like baseball's a really hard sport. There might not be a single harder thing. I don't know if every barrel is actually, I think some bats are have like slightly different like the way the way it builds up to the barrels. I don't know what the exact requirements are. Either way, I was thinking that just putting more pressure on the pitchers, making them pitch even faster. Not in speed wise in terms of increasing their pitch count clock and then give them a little bit of bigger bats. It may be short in the game up a little bit, or shorten the season. I think I don't think that's the problem. The game, Emma games are not that long. You're right, we're just humans are naturally becoming worse and worth their attention. NFL games are way longer. Yeah, and there's way more in this way. Football games the longest. People love college football. It's very true. I just think that in my head when I was coming up with these ideas, I was like, gotta come up with something. And in on that idea, though, that is just bigger bats, like when you're outside playing. I don't know if the bigger bats is a buy, but there should be something there should be an added entertainment. A middle ground between the Savannah bananas in the Kansas City Royals, because to put it to put it bluntly, the Kansas City Royals in the baseball the pirates is just boring. As someone who played baseball growing up, I want to see them do something to the game that doesn't take away from the integrity. It needs to be a little bit more drama. Yeah, like I said, they might need to bring Garrett murawski into play let's play first base. That guy is the king of drama from that HBO show. Local Pittsburgh legend. Did you see that? Did you see the Tommy Pham slap? With jock? No, I did. I saw the clip about jaw getting interviewed. I didn't see the physicals lab. That's the biggest baseball story of the season. Yeah, that's shameful, that that's the biggest story. But I love Jacques Peterson. I didn't realize Jacques was such an idiot. Yeah, he's a complete idiot, but he's like he's an arid and he hits the ball to the moon. But he's actually a really good guy. He's a really big heart too. Great player, but he's such a stereotypical meathead. Yeah. He makes no sense. I mean, it's not like quite my cup of tea, but I mean, this drama is actually good. Like the baseball needs more stuff like that. Yes. You're right. And the fact that that's the biggest story that they've been able to put out for the last couple of weeks is just shows you the lack of drama and more slaps, more fantasy football. Maybe the winner of each game gets to just like peg one.

"Already buster bleacher tweets for a Monday. First up we have Alistair hay at dice con writing in with the braves appearing to break camp with Contreras and stridor. Are they going with their best guys, no service manipulation to it seems. He adds on the side what other teams are opening with their best, can't wait for opening day. Most teams are. I think a lot of teams don't try to manipulate service time. We talked last week about the Kansas City Royals, Bobby with junior is going to start the season with their team. I think Detroit, you know, if not for the injury the other day to Riley green, I think they absolutely would have started this season with him, but he's got a broken foot after failing a ball of his foot. He's going to be out a while. You know, I think that the number of teams and in fact Oakland, you know, I've had this conversation with Billy Beane in past years where he doesn't worry about holding a guy in the minor leagues in extra two weeks in order to delay his free agency. He believes in getting players to the big leagues, but there are teams that do that, no doubt. Next up we've got mister jakey RS at mister Jay KRS writes in ellipses John Fisher's pockets. I don't agree that this is just retooling time where do you think the extra revenue sharing money is going to end up? In his pockets. And I think there's no doubt if you're clear. Yeah, if you're a front office, we talked about this in the past. You're Oakland this year. You're the pirates. You're the Orioles. You can sell it to your ownership that, you know what? We're going to cut our payroll the bone. You're going to make a lot of money and hopefully we hit on our draft picks, but no matter what happens with the draft picks, no matter how we develop, you're going to make a lot of money. So it's not a bad option. And as we've talked about repeatedly under the current rules, it's absolutely a viable strategy and it's up to Major League Baseball and the Players Association to have enough collaboration and cooperation to retool the entire system and quite frankly, you know, while that's on the ownership and I've talked for years about how I think the owners shouldn't want this, it also requires engagement and that's where the player association has to, moving forward, the in constant conversation generating ideas, thoughts, how do we change this system, and I would not be surprised if that happens before the next labor agreement. Buster, what about this? What if John Fisher goes out there and is like, listen guys, I'm feeling a little bit broke at the moment. I need to, I can't go out to dinner is often and we're gonna have to tank for a couple of years to afford a new stadium. Like what if he just says like, hey, I don't have any money like we got a tank, we'll retool the team and we'll build a new stadium, but we're gonna suck for a while. Is that too much, honestly? Yeah. You can't say it out loud. It's why, in fact, you know, and I've noticed this prominent couple of prominent writers who worked under Major League Baseball umbrella would not use the word tanking because they know that if you go out and admit publicly and use that word tanking, boy, if you opened your open up yourself some class action suits from like season ticket holders. Wait a second. We thought we were trying to buy tickets to watch games of a team that's competing, and now we have the owner coming out and saying, we're not even trying to compete. That is not a slope. You'll see any owner of step on too. All right. That makes sense. Yeah. Oh yeah, totally. Of course they're not gonna say anything like that. So John Fisher, no more DoorDash from.
"kansas city royals" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"A lot, a lot more to David Ortiz's story and why he is to me a slam dunk for cooperstown in 2022. The number one moment in my mind and I think it sticks out in the minds of a lot of Boston Red Sox fans, especially in the city of Boston, was what he did on April 20th, 2013, when first responders and the Watertown police department were being recognized for how they handled the two day shutdown after the Boston city excuse me after the Boston Marathon bombing back on April 13th. And I think what he was able to do and the way he was able to galvanize not just Red Sox fans, but the city of Boston, this is our effing city. And for him to say, and obviously he did not say epping, he actually said the word. We'll keep it family friendly here. This is our effing city. To me, that defines David Ortiz. And that is saying something considering he's the best clutch hitter in the history of Major League Baseball. That's not hyperbole. That's just the way it is. Anybody who watched his 18 year career starting with the twins back in the early 2000s and ending in 2016 with the Red Sox knows that he is the greatest clutch hitter they've ever seen. But the way he galvanized people, I already brought up the moment he galvanized the Red Sox and the dug out in St. Louis and game four of the 2013 World Series. But earlier in that season on April 20th, 2013, David Ortiz was a lot about a lot more than just baseball on that day. And the way galvanized the city, I keep using that word, but I think it's the perfect word for him. Really stuck out in the fans and endeared him to not only Red Sox fans and not only baseball fans, but endeared him to anybody who really felt that Boston had been attacked and you think you're going to make us cower screw off. And that was the perfect time, the perfect moment. David Ortiz against the Kansas City Royals before that game. And even the royals stood up on the edge of their dugout in awe of what the man was doing. Yeah, I mean, he just captured the tone of the moment so perfectly. And you know, you know you kind of got it right when the FCC came out and the FCCs are pretty stingy organization. They really don't let a lot slide and they were like, that's fine. He's good. We're not gonna find anybody for that. So yeah, I have the shirt. This is our all of that. It was a defining moment for the city. You know, forget a defining moment for the Red Sox. You talk about what a big moment it was. Here we are talking about the guy who, like you said, the greatest clutch hitter of all time who, you know, played a huge part in ending the curse. One of the biggest grand slams and.

I didn't have anything to do with it. I waited seven years jump across canyon. I'm surprised though.

Antone brings heat in push for Cincinnati Reds' rotation
"Reds played tonight and three hours against the kansas city. Royals perhaps not with these same amount of excitement as the night before her. Green and nikola delo pitched tj anton in relief last night against the dodgers and again that ended with a four four tie. I will admit to you. I get the purpose behind the rule that a team on defense can roll the inning over and basically ended prematurely as a fan. That's not much fun. Tony larussa has said as much. Tony larussa and i are on the same page about anything. That's saying something but above and beyond the outcome of the game which obviously doesn't matter. Tj antone pitch last night and he was phenomenal two innings. His fastball was ninety. Seven ninety eight ninety nine killer slider filthy curve five strikeouts two innings gave up. Just a hit. This is a guy who was a bit of a revelation. Last year made his major league debut with the reds early in the season started. Four games came in and relief and nine others and did a really really nice job. Here's david bell on what he liked from. Tj last night looks very lockton. Yeah maybe could've been the best basketball. I've seen include. Let's santa law so good last year. But his fastball of really good is everyone which means it just locked in a totally kind of grown accustomed to tj being very focused and determined so even those beverly in the spring doesn't surprise me at perching david bell last night talking about t j anto. I don't wanna make too much out of one. Spring training outing the didn't count. There is a lot of foolishness and doing that. But he is a part of a mix of guys who will ultimately answer one of the critical questions about the reds this spring. Which is who's gonna make up the back into the rotation right and even if he doesn't end up as a starter he could be a valuable member of a bullpen. that said goodbye to two quality. Relievers this offseason and rice laziest and archie bradley. But what role will tj antone bien after a good two thousand twenty. Here he is and what role he would like to be. Yeah i wanna start but wherever those. Tv's all right. Good short concise. It's the right answer. You don't get the sense just listening to that that he's going to be upset if he's not a starting pitcher but that is what he's been for most of his professional career one hundred and eleven appearances in the minor leagues one hundred and nine as a starter with different levels of success. I don't think there was anything about just looking. At his minor league statistical profile that would have suggested that he would emerge last. Year is valuable arm but he was. Era to eighty again pitched started four games when needed member wade. Miley had to miss some time. Sonny gray mr starr disc- he came out of the bullpen. Nine times and did a nice job. He'd really did a nice job last year. So now the question is does he factor into the mix a little bit more in the race to be the last starter.
