"It's going to be a tough home stand in the way it's gonna shape up as a four game series here with Milwaukee now, don't forget. On Wednesday, rosters expand. Not very much. It's not to 40 man like we used to see. In September, you get to go to 28 Man rosters, and the one thing that's different now is the triple A schedule is extended through September. So it used to be like if you call the guy up in September, and he did it in mid September, and the the Triple A team is out of the postseason for Triple A playoffs. He might not have been playing for a couple of weeks. I remember Kevin Franzen telling me a story about that, where he said he was sitting Remember what year this was, he said. You know the season it ended and he was, you know, kind of at home or hanging out down in the South Bay and got a call from Bobby Evans and said, Hey, man, Grab your stuff. Come on, down to word to Southern California. Meet us in San Diego. We may need to activate you tomorrow and he said, Yeah, that's fine. But I haven't been like facing live pitching been hitting off a tee or taking some BP or whatever, but you're out there and you're trying to get your work and you do this for six months consecutively from the start of spring training up through the end of your regular season. He's like, Yeah, it's tough to get activated after not getting any game action and not getting any bigger. Game action for a period of time. So the difference here is you're not going to see players who have just been kind of kind of sitting around waiting to see if they get called up. You're also only going to see a max of to get activated. So Gabe Kapler did announce his rotation for this Brewers series. They're going to open it up with Johnny Cueto today against Corbyn Burn. You're going to get Brandon Woodruff against Alex would on Tuesday night tomorrow, both of these games six 41st pitch at 6 45 1st pitch right here can be are one Oh 45. And 6 80. Then Wednesday, we'll see what happens how they get creative with expanding the roster who they bring up to You could go with three catchers. I guess we'll see what happens as far as keeping Buster healthy. Curt Casali. Obviously, I don't know. Joey Bark just got activated last.

"But what really comes back to her Joe Madness, then in the 10th inning, and you know, 11 game. He's got the bases loaded. Zach Littles in the game for the Giants, he brings up his backup catcher, Max Stassi. Now this is something that gets a little dicey here and generally when a team runs out of catchers. It's not because they have used their backup catcher as a pinch hitter. Oftentimes it's because you're starting catcher gets hurt. You got to go to your backup catcher. I mean, I see this game yesterday or bad news Got to throw outfielder Starting pitchers out in the outfield. If there's Griffin canning in left field at one point, he's got to go to a Tyler Ward. His left fielder, who has never caught a big league game in his life after a Kurt Suzuki injury, has to put him in the squad in a high leverage situation in an extra inning ball game. A guy who has never caught at the big league level, however, is overnight. Dave looked up. He did spend some time in the minor leagues. Were you say he was he was catching the high West. I say you get popped. My high desert is where Davis saying he was catching Tyler Ward. So anyway, this reminds me very much, And I think this is the Angels version of the July 7 2000 and seven game Giants in the age where the Giants run out of catchers and Bruce Bochy's first season. Pedro Feliz has to come in from third base as the emergency catcher Randy Wind goes from right field to third base and the Noah Lowry trucks out to right field. For a third of an inning Now they didn't have to get through as long as a game as the Angels did hear. The Angels had no end in sight, Really right? I mean, you get the runner on second next regime an opportunity to win every time you step up to bed in extra innings, however, the Giants sort of sort of ripped this thing out of their hands. They let things get out of out of hand. Really, and there are some I mean, I don't even know again. There's so many moments in this game. We can go to the play at the plate that almost ends it for the Giants after Brandon Belt exits with an injury chopper to to first base Darren Rough comes up with it throws home, Buster Posey swipes a tag immediately. The runners called safe game should be over. Giant should lose the ball game. Uh, not so fast game Capital challenges. That was a tense moment. I was not positive that play was going to get overturned. Just because we've seen so many close plays. Get Either missed or or play stands. But the empire has got this one right at least back in New York. They look at this one. And the swipe tag was okay from Buster and the Giants. Get out of the inning. I tried to make notes of everything that went down to this game. A seven run 13th for the Giants. It was 1 to 1. By the way, going into the 12th inning. Brandon Belt gets injured, running to third base. He sort of pulls up lame. The ball goes through. Anthony Rendon is legs. Brandon Belt tries to come home. The ball squirts away. But Rendon gets it. They throw him out and then belt sort of collapsed to a heap. It looks like maybe a need Injury. You're saying they're going to take a look at it, but it doesn't look like it's going to be something super serious. And I know uh, you know, giant stands who were upset about LaMonte Wade getting sent out in my talk men staying up We're sort of, uh, I guess they felt like they were right. You know, Far away three. Yesterday's Ballgame first five at bats for talk Man, five strikeouts and he hits a home run in extras. But when I see belt go down, I'm thinking boy that that's sort of the door opening for Lamont. Wait. If Brandon Belt were to go down with an injury again for an extended period of time, that would land him on the I L Lamar, wait, maybe comes back to help you in the outfield. And as you're left handed, first baseman just something we're floating out there. It sort of makes you think about the depth. This organization in the depth of this team. So so many things to talk about in this one, but again reminds me so much of that July I said July 7th July 9th 2000 and seven giants in the eighties, when the Giants ran out of catchers had to use an emergency catcher. You just don't see games like this very often, but again. This is all because of of Joe Maddon deciding he needed to use his backup catcher, and I think it was his last bench player as a pinch hitter. With the bases loaded. It was Max Stassi in the think it was in the 10th inning. He comes in to pinch hit for his closer Risala glaciers. Bases are loaded. One out next as he was ahead, 31 and exactly tell gets into Chase. Two balls that would have been ball for would have won the ballgame. Angels would have won it in the 10th. If Stassi just takes one of those 22 balls from Zach would tell very similar. Now. It went down in the 10th inning or in the ninth inning, I should say for the Giants of the July 9th a seven game Giants get the bases loaded with one away, Ray Durham. Pops out to second base after going down No. One and then our guy Kevin Frandsen strikes out on three pitches. Kevin Franzen in that moment had come in as a pinch hitter. He would have been the emergency catcher for Bruce Bochy. That day. He had been catching bullpens, but they used them as a as an emergency pinch, not emergency as a pinch hitter. They did not score the run to win the ball game in the ninth, and so they go to the 10th there at a catcher's And and Bruce Bochy has got to got to bring in after Elia's or Alfonso gets injured. Benjamin Lena had already been pulled. He's got to go to Pedro Feliz, similar to Tyler Ward have to come in yesterday after Kurt Suzuki injury, he catches one off the face mask and goes into the concussion protocol. Joe Maddon was, like all positive after the game to post games like Oh, yeah. So proud of the guys, This is the type of game we need to win. We gotta, you know, not make mistakes against teams like this. And you know the fact that it stayed as close as it did when Joe Maddon is running the pictures up there in the 12th inning. He had two pictures taken back to the 12th. And they still almost one that got really, really dicey for a minute with that play at the plate with Buster. So anyway, all stuff we're going to pull apart. We'll get to the reaction we'll hear from Game capital. We'll hear from Stephen Duggar. What a couple of nice moments also from my talk New boy. He was staring down. 1/6 strikeout over six with six strikeouts would have been a major league record in this game also can make note. Alex Dickerson becomes the first player Uh, first player in major league history for ex player ever to face Shohei Otani and get three hits off of him in a single ball game. That's sort of a crazy note from yesterday. Dave Fleming has to leave the ball game day forming on the broadcast yesterday, and he ends up dipping out of the game because it had gone for so long that they have to go to We have the audio of that. What? What we Why do we play that for you On the other side? Why don't you clean that up? We'll play it on the other side anyway. Dave Fleming is in the middle of the broadcast, and the game was going so long. You think you know, Well, game ends in 10 innings now with a runner on second. Not so fast because 13 innings and, uh and Fleming's going to leave because he had to do a broadcast last night on ESPN, And so John Miller and J T Snow who are on the T V, so I'd have to explain. Hey, we're gonna We're going to go simulcast here. So what you heard on TV is what you were getting on the radio, John Miller explained on the broadcasting. He had to switch to radio mode. It's a different type of broadcast..

"Gonna grab some at noon Delight. My motto has always been when it's right. It's right. Why wait until the middle of a cold dark? I was I was thinking of you this weekend, because, uh, Anchorman was on. I think it was on TBS or TNT or one of those things, And it was the exact This is the exact scene right when I turned it on. Are you serious? Yeah. I mean, literally if they had just gone on the office and they went What is it like Ron? You know, love, And then they broke down in the song I was like, Are you kidding? Like literally within 10 seconds of me turning it on. I'm like, Wow, that's so good. So I I watched that scene. Watch a couple more minutes and I flipped it back to sports because there was a lot going on. Uh, we're gonna talk to Frannie in a minute. But speak to something going on South Korea's opted against playing for Team USA that, according to Sam's, and Anthony Slater of the athletic, so no curry. For the Olympic. Yeah, it's interesting Dream Odds. N. James Harden's in Who else? It's hardened so far. Harden Durant, Booker Draymond out of bio, Beale, Lillard and Tatum. Those are guys who have said they're going to play. Yeah, um Rick Welts stood up at a press conference this morning. I don't know if he talked about that, and that's the staff decision. Um, I would venture to guess that, uh, just the uncertainty about, uh, he's ending with him physically or Basketball related. I think he just doesn't maybe feel it's the right time to go to, uh To Japan. And, uh, but this is something he has been looking For in his life. I mean, um so we're going to compete. The 2020 Olympiad. Olympic Games will be in 2021. So three years from now, he'll be 37. I still think he may have a chance. To, uh To do it, but Yeah, I I I Yeah. Knowing how well rounded of a person he is, in all regard, it's not just about him. You know, I kind of thought maybe he would make this decision, but this would be his last chance to be an Olympian. I would think. What's he going to be? 30 of 37? 37 37? I think he'd still make it. Oh, yes. I mean, he would easily be a great I mean, what the with the short international line the three ball for him. That's there all layups out to mid court. For him. That's a joke. Yeah. Yeah, you could. You know, he still may have a chance. Yeah. Is there any reason if they said anything is the why, Um, I don't know yet. Why is that going to do it? I just saw a tweet on it, so I'll see if anything else is happening, but I was thinking more brain of pain. I was talking to a buddy of mine this weekend. And, you know from people saying No. You know, you don't want them to go or, you know, put too much stress on it. I mean, they go internationally. I don't know if steps going to do it for endorsement deals. You know the team that good of the names that I just read. I mean, you're not going to be playing many minutes. You know in any of the guys 90 minutes. I mean, you're not. You're not playing much and they work out more than that. So it's really not a question of Whether it's going to put, you know, strain on a guy generally isn't But like you said, maybe he just doesn't feel comfortable over there. Whatever the reason will be. I'm sure that in years past when you were playing, you know in the finals. Yeah, you know, he didn't want him going and coming back for a short office. That's not the case. He's hardly played much. So they went out. Didn't make the playoffs this year, even though you know we were in a May Think it's who knows. I'm not checked with the Warriors reach out to Brandon Pain. I would think this is strictly uh, he's not comfortable going to Asia. And for you know, maybe he just doesn't feel it's the right time to be a part of the Olympics by Steve Kerr is on the staff. It's Gregg Popovich. Obviously so. I'm sure he'll shed his thoughts on this in the coming hours. As to why, because this is a big decision for Dutch just himself. But all of his fans worldwide Alright, the Giants just got done. Taking two of three from the Phillies will talk to her good friend Kevin Franzen radio for the affiliates about it coming up next and just big picture. All of baseball do it coming up pop in London, the SportsCenter. Did you know you can listen to Papa in London? Your Google home? Smart speaker. Just say play KNBR.

We're actually we're recording this on Thursday morning, February 11th and carry just told me actually, during the break there. He's about to jump on a plane. Go down to Scottsdale. Did you think you'd be flying to Arizona? Did eh so I made it? I actually made a critical mistake, Adam. And this is when you were planning spring training. It was initially in January, and it was OK. Everything is going to start on time. So I buy my flight for you know the weekend before pitchers and catchers you're supposed to report because when pitchers and catchers report Writers get access to the ballpark. We get in there. We're all set to go. And then you find out that maybe they push spring training back and I'm thinking, Oh, maybe I'll have to push my flight back. I don't really have a hotel yet, So we'll figure this out that I find out that okay. It's all starting on time. But writers actually aren't let in for an extra week this year. So the first day that I can be at Scottsdale Stadium isn't until February, 22nd. For the Giants. First team workout Today is February 11. So I am going down there. I might just come back. I might come back after the weekend, and we will see, you know, may can't spend enough time in Scottsdale and so well so well. See, I don't have my hotel reservation starting. So, as you know, I went to Arizona State living off a few friends couches for the week. And reporting on baseball from the Scottsdale area is kind of my story right now. It sounds to me like this is not this is not a work trip. It sounds to me like you're cursing down may have a few people know this is a work trip. This is the work during grinding away When you get there I will be. I will be. I got a ton of interview scheduled. All I needed just borrow a friend's wife.

So far by the way, can I Can I just make a statement quickly here, and that's the 76 or 77 Win team is the most frustrating team in baseball toe like the 2000. No. Can I offer you like a 2008 San Francisco giants like You mean my favorite San Francisco giants of all time or, you know, come on Jorge Castillo and third base and s. So it was when Benji Molina was hitting his prime. Yeah, big money in little money, And I want to say problem may have come up the next year, you know, nine Partner. Yes. Yes, I think so. He may have been end of 2008 and had too many at bats to win Rookie of the year in 2009, because he would have been that guy that year. Can I offer you like a Ryan rolling? Or maybe making a appearance? By the way? That was Brian Bo Cock? The starting shortstop that might have been the year of the Brian Bo Cock was the starting shortstop Because Kevin Franzen gets hurt in spring training. Omar Vizquel was hurt in spring training. And so they go to the single A short stop at But you know what came out of that 0 18 in my memory. 08 No. Nine Was big for pieces that led to the bullpen run for the World championships. Sergio Romo. They had to find a gift beyond sports leader Daytona International Speedway, where the motor racing network has live coverage of the Daytona 500 Jeff struggle alongside Alex Hayden. By the way, our next update will come into top of the hour, eight o'clock eastern Well, there's no rain right now. Alex Hayden. That's the good news. Now The bad news is we've got what appears to be one more cell that we have to work through. Yeah, we do, but it continues to break up over central Florida. Hoping it breaks up enough where it's not a deluge type of down for maybe just a Sprinkle or two, But we're making pretty good progress right now, with the Toyota Tundra track drying team out there trying to get this race track and shape so we could hopefully hopefully go back racing. And those Tundras that you talk about have been out there for a while, so will again hold out hope. If we can get through this one last little deal here Who knows?

Shortstop at but you know what came out of that? Oh, a team and in my memory, 08. No. Nine was big for pieces that led to the bullpen run for the World Championships. Sergio Romo. They had to find Guillermo Mota was a guy They brought over in, like, Oh, wait or 09. Danny Santana was around. So serious mottoes is your remember. You're remembering some guy's better than how about how about Alex Hinshaw? That's a lefty. That's a guy who I loved him. So I had that bugs Bunny curveball anyway, dude, lots of questions around this team who's gonna be the closer Whose baton against Who? In which line up to you. You came up with syriza of kind of like mailbag questions right about about what we should be focused on for this year. Yeah, I've been focused on this writing for the Bay Area News group this week. Bunch of different giants topics that were thrown out there to fans getting their reaction and I want to ask you some of the most burning ones and, of course. The most important place to start when Farhaan Side, he said that the biggest offseason acquisition for the Giants was not actually any players that they've signed or traded for, but his Buster Posey That leads to the question. What can the Giants realistically expect from Buster Posey after he will go 550 days between starts if he starts on opening day for San Francisco. See, this is Ah, That's probably the biggest question period and not so much so, like. I don't even think that's the biggest question like like relevant to success for the Giants, But I do think, if poses good or opposes the Posey. We were used to seeing for so many years. Obviously, the Giants are in a much better situation. I think the better question is like What are they looking for? Like you can have your expectations for like we need him to to put up these numbers. But what does he need to do to help this team be successful. He's gonna play Gold Glove defense. It's just what he does behind the plate. I don't know how much run he's gonna get it First. There's a lot of right handed bats. There's there's no reason for Buster Posey's to pick up the first base and spent this year. No reason whatsoever. So the question I have is, Does he end up in a situation like we're watching Warrior basketball right now? Second warrior reference of the pot by the way today, Steph Curry looks like he's more fresh than we've ever seen. And Draymond Green looks pretty good, too. He had a four game scratch over the last week or so. Re and 50 assist his legs Look good. I think there's something to be said about guys in the N B, A who play year after your deep into the playoffs, putting a lot of extra miles on those legs. The same can be said about Buster Posey in the postseason. For that stretch of years, he comes up in 09 sure, at the end within 2010 in May deep into the postseason, when the World Series 12 the exact same thing, 14 the same thing, 16 the same thing into the playoffs. All of those times. I think you said this last week outside of the Grand Slam off from that way toast. There's not a whole lot of offensive Colin cards for Buster Posey in the playoffs, So it's all about how he handles the staff how he handles the defense that he calls pitches and maybe unrivaled by anybody in the game today, outside of Yadi Molina in ST Louis Buster is the best catcher of this generation. So for me, it's about where he's hitting in the lineup. What are your expectations for the offensive production? So I don't know if he's gonna be like Is it gonna be Steph Curry fresh because he's had this time off, or is he gonna be that hip is just is just still not what it used to be. You know what I mean? I'm really Yeah, I'm really fascinated because I believe it was. Nick Hundley, who said back in 2017 when he was first playing with the Giants came into spring training and said after Hundley had played it course field in Colorado that if Buster Posey was a Colorado rocky, he would win the batting title every year. He is that type of a hitter. He is that type of knowledge plate discipline. Ability to go the other way work with what pictures are giving him and he just wasn't healthy enough in 2017 2018 2019 to really do much damage And now that he will have this year and a half off in between serious baseball competition that's putting stress on his body. Will he return to that level? Where you know he is a 300 hitter? He is a 3 10 guy. We know he's not gonna hit 20 home runs. That's just not happening. He probably won't play enough to hit 20 home runs. Will he catch 100 games? Well, it only be 81 games. How quickly will Joey Bart working the next I'm really fascinated. See all of us, and I think we're gonna learn. Ah, whole lot. In spring training about what Buster Posey is capable of just based solely on where he is in line up how often he's playing. If they've got him going back to backs. It'll be interesting to see Adam. I want to move on to pressing question Number two, and that is speaking of the lineup. Speaking of where Buster Posey's hitting. I do believe it'll be much lower this year than it was under Bruce Bochy is the Giants lineup better? Against right handed pitchers or left handed pitchers. Keep this in mind against righties. You'll see Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt, Tommy Lost Ella Alex Dickerson. Maybe new trade acquisition. Lamont weighed against lefties. It'll be Donovan Solano, Donnie Barrels. Wilmer Flores, Darren Rough, Austin Slater and Marie She. O D. Bon..

"Headlines. Now back to Tolbert, Kruger and Brooks Baby on KNBR, 1045 and 68 sports leader. I know that voice nine years in the big, illustrious career can be are not calling games for the Philadelphia Phillies. Franny Kevin Franzen. What's up, Freddie? Um and I don't know. I don't know what the guys here's the deal tomorrow. You're gonna have the birds coming in. They literally backed in this thing like a Everyone was trying to avoid the Dodgers. I feel like happen if you're you're you're the brewer's You get your your butts kicked for three days. And you basically go into that Cardinal game going help. You have no chance, guys. You got to get like we'll sweep out of the rays over the Phillies, and you've got to get the last two from the Padres over the Giants. And then the Giants got robbed, raped and You know, that's where we're at. You know, I'm I'm so fired up for eight games tomorrow or whatever. That's pretty cool. It's like March Madness. Awesome. Yeah, No, it's it's insane. I am The 80 day is really kicking in trying to figure out which game I want to go to. So I doing Well, I'm just a little bit. You know, a little pressure right now in tow where I wanted to go, and yeah, it's good to be on. How was it from a broadcasting standpoint? This year, was it? No, no, no, no, no. Keep going. We'll call in the calling the games, you know on the monitor off off the monitor was on the challenging Because you're at the you know. Production. The producers. Whoever the truck is wherever you are, you're there dispense, So it's like In Tampa. Help of this were like a second and a half off from contact like when they switched it. And so you have a fly ball to deep Centre field. What you thought was off the bat, and here's the other parts. You have dome right? No one in there, so it's loud as hell and you're like, boom. You're thinking. Oh, there's a deep shot on the guys running in on the ball and center field. You're like this is not good. It was challenging. It was fun, though, because it made you You know, you had to think of, you know. Get your homework. Um, you couldn't get away like that guy in the eye like the guy in Bull Durham. That was just like hitting, too. He's a voice, so I did crack. We do really, So we didn't so that's another part with radio. You have, you know you're again. All these things going on, and we were so delayed like not every game was like sync up force, and so Scott, France key in the play by play, guys, just let's go play by play. Guys in general are so impressive or what they did. Was there just like delaying it, And they're like CNN. They knew it was happening because you could have, like all nine that was live, but it was like like these guys were fuzzy. So you had no idea you could just see a movement. But the patients that they had was insane. So the other day we had no sound like nothing. And Scott was getting like a little thrown off its that were watching the TV and I had. I found two bats in their and I just started walking away like trying to get the perfect timing. We had. I think any and a half of doing it and then I had the 11 that was broken. Guy got shattered it and I just exploded the bat. It was amazing. So So where you guys watch a movie You'd see at the end of the credit after they get past the main people in director and stuff. A show like the key grip in the best boy ever see Foley artist? You ever see that guy and wonder what a Foley artist is? Well, that's the person that that does sound effects or kind of enhancing the sound effect. You have been a Foley artist is what you were doing your smacking it together, so you should probably check in with Sag AFTRA there. Yeah, extra juice from you. Absolutely. After getting pay cuts and stuff. Yeah, Hell, yeah, I'm in. Granny Franny, you You know, it's weird this baseball years so weird because, you know, normally, you know their fans to go. Hi, I'm a national exams are and maybe they don't. They don't pay attention to the American League were off their American League fan and they don't watch Ng N L ball. This year. It was like West Central East, right. So if you like, I know the West and I know the NL West. I just don't know Jack about the East Worth a central because I haven't seen any of those teams. You probably saw a ton of the East. So that being said, What do you think of those two clubs? You got the Marlins against the Cubs in the Marlins, humanity could might get manager of the year votes because of the job. He's their number one. They have 195 different transactions on the year. Me and the Braves and the Braves. Absolutely rake. You know they they've scored six runs a game in September, going up against a red team that hit to 12. As a team, but they had all kinds of long balls and they get great, great pitching. So who's who's more likely to pull the upset? Who's more likely to advance? You know you like the Braves against the Reds, where their favorite or do you like the You like the Marlins to pull the upset against the Cubbies? Very heavy question right there. So a couple of things I had earlier today I would've gone Marlon's over Cubs. The Cubs decided that they're going to go Hendricks and I'm like I want to change my because I believe in the guy that the control guy with a lot of movement. In Game one, especially with the power behind them right in Darvish and all that stuff, the Marlins They might struggle against the Cubs. They might and then again, But you got to see the pitching staff that the Marlins have in a few of us were talking about it early in the year. Not going like, Oh, yeah, the Marlins going to roll over The Marlins are good, like the offensively they're not gonna while you at all. Okay, they'll give up some, like really quick. A bat's some weeks off contact quite often. But you talk about power in the in the starting staff Guys that have control different looks in the pen..

"Our guy friend Kevin France is going to join next hour. I do want to go a little bit deeper into something we discussed. Off of the top, and we discussed it at length last night when Mauricio Chibana was the hero for the Giants last night. Came on the show as well. He hit the big home run, and I put out on Twitter something that was that was simply meant to kind of celebrate the moment and also calm everybody down. Because earlier in the series Kevin Pilar hit a home run. He's out a couple of nice moments. Dan and I think that Kevin was was kind of a comfort blanket for Giants fans last year, you know, he's a big leaguer. They started out the year by putting a bunch of minor leaguers in the outfield. And part of the Giants. Being caught with their pants down at the beginning of last year was that they they had been trying to get Kevin Pillar for weeks and thought they would get him and then It was delayed and it lasted into the season a little bit and they weren't quite ready. So they got Kevin a few games into the season and he had over 20 home runs, which Giants had been making a habit of not doing in recent years, is a Willy Mac Award winner. And he has highlight reel plays in center field. All of these things are good things. Kevin Pillar's very good baseball player. By the same token, what the Giants, I think very clearly learned, is two things with regard to Pilar on the future. Pilar did not fit on two fronts, eh? He would have been a one year veteran. Therefore, Kevin Pilar resigning would've been about Winning this year, which is so fascinating to me how many people Have said while the Giants really messed up. By not signing Kevin Pilar are often the same people who say or giants are winning this year. So like Why would they? Why would they do that? Why would they? Why would they think that? Why would they entertained the idea of trading prospects that doesn't make any sense. Same people. It's like they're arguing against themselves. If you don't believe that the Giants could win it this year, and nobody does. If you don't believe that. Then there's zero point in resigning Kevin Pilar because Kevin would have been a one year guy. He would have been there to make the team better this year, and he would have gotten in the way of younger outfielders who needed innings. Who, by the way, have all ended up looking really good, And that's that's 0.2 on when I say all of them ended up looking really good. Sure, there were tires kicked early in the season. They wanted to see what was going on with Jalen Davis. Joe McCarthy ended up out there a little bit. Stephen Dugger ended up out there that has not gone well. Yazz Ha's Dickerson has Slater has rough has On DH. You know Du Bon has. So that's what you needed to learn. If you have Kevin, you're not learning that and it would have been wildly wildly counter productive. So I am still I'm fending off people text line Twitter everywhere, saying the Giants or 28 28. Plotters on this team. They're dirt there definitely better and then they'd be in the playoffs. Well, you spent the start of this year, saying Why should the Giants sell out to make the playoffs? They probably won't make it. And even if they do, they're not one in the World Series. Like Larry Kruger at the deadline, and Larry, I hope you're listening. Um Larry said at the deadline. You know? First of all, he wanted the Giants Tio doom or just in in theory. Be more active, but by the same token thie idea of the giant's going for it. In other words, let's go for it. I heard experts all over the place Larry included, and they're right. Say it would be ridiculous for the giant's toe mortgage things down the road. In an effort to win this year. Larry was a big proponent, for instance of trading Kevin Gausman now explain to me anybody who wanted the Giants to trade Kevin Gausman. But signed Kevin Pilar, You're having an argument with yourself. You don't need another person. You need a mirror. Rule of this trade, Kevin Gausman Whoa! Hold on a second. Trading. Kevin Gausman means we're not going for it this year. Side income. Pilar means we're going for it this year. So if you're on the wagon of let's resign puller, but trade Gausman to the Yankees. I, um I'm not sure what to tell you. You're you're having an argument with yourself. So I hope you don't carry carry detail that really well, I thought Kevin's a wonderful baseball player and made no sense for the Giants. These things are equally true at the exact same time, that's kind of where I'm coming from at all about. So Soundgarden right around the corner. Kevin Franzen is coming up in a little bit. Can't wait to talk to Frannie, who let's be honest is probably routine is blood off against Giants right now. The former giant, the former host on the sports leader probably wrote my crazy against the Giants because the Phillies and Giants they are They are polar opposites right now, in terms of of where all of this is going, so we'll get to that later on in the hour, But right now, here we go with Choose your fated. Eight Brandon Belt, Gabe Kapler, Terrel Owens on.

"Really got going as a sort of a startling scary morning yesterday reminiscent of the of the Rudy Go bare night. Remember when that happened? The NBA shut down. Of course you remember when it happened. Close down the entire country when it happened, But n BA game started getting cancelled, started getting pulled from the slate. We started getting reports of positive tests and then just like that we were shut down no sports until they return just recently, but after the Marlins positive test from over the weekend And we heard about the sort of alarming number yesterday 11 people on the traveling party. 11 players in two coaches on the traveling party for the Marlins. Testing positive for covert 19. It was it was startling, and I think we all got a little bit concerned. About whether or not we'd be able to finish the season anyway. Good morning to you happy Tuesday to you, Adam coping with you in the leadoff spot as we are every weekday morning, 5 to 6 AM, And actually, of all those highlights that they've played their coming in. I taught a lot of baseball yesterday, I decided once once I heard all this was going down, I was like we may not have much more of this looks. Let ze overindulgence make sure we get in as much as we can be A CZ got us going yesterday's You're the Mark Canha backflip in season the they beat the Angels yesterday. Three. Nothing Mike Trout End That volume kind of got host on I was I was texting Kevin Franzen yesterday who's on a fastball at the top of the strike zone, where he's the time run down three. Nothing in the top of the ninth and Covad 19 stuff when you are not allowed to jaw or two or get into it with an umpire. Nothing changes your outcome of being called out on strikes to end a ball game. But he you know my tribe turns around, wants to run his mouth a little bit, But he remembers as he starts to talk trash or or or bitch and moan to the umpire that he's got to get off the field. He's not allowed to get new his face without a mask on and Some might truck had a walking away from the umpire with his mask off. Obviously, he's not wearing one of these. I've seen a handful of players actually does a mask. It's a whole production. Exactly. Ah, lot of players go out and play or take their at bats without a mask. I saw Kris Bryant of the Cubs yesterday did that. When he took it and bat was not wearing them, asking what he drew the walk and got to first base and he's standing next to the first baseman and the the first base coach and the umpire over there was the mask on which you know seems like a pretty good system for me. I know he's standing up there next to a catcher and an umpire who are wearing masks, but it's a plan. It's something to do. Right. Well, you know, Major League baseball is going to stand by what they believed was the correct thing to do. They're going to say this, and we said this yesterday we didn't have really any time to cover this in the leadoff spot because this news Came out really right at the end of the show, right as we were getting going on the can be our morning show with Murph and Max. So we spent a lot of time talking about it yesterday. Really just kind of Palms up a little bit concerned about about what could happen. Who knows how this is gonna play out and I want to get excited for tonight. I want to be stoked that we get more Giants Baseball. Jeff So Marge Zach Davies doubted Oracle Park and opportunity to play a game in the giant's home ballpark. Ah, a chance to jump over 500. About that Guthrie and to Teo to start the season against the Padres team That's pretty good Padres team that has got a stacked top of the order and middle of the order. Self San Diego exactly share the same sentiment. Ron Burgundy, but but far is the health and safety stuff goes. Major League Baseball and Rob Manford spoke last night. We're going to run through it, and I know it's not the it's not the most exciting thing. Tio listen to rob Man for talking and toe the company line. But we've got to hear this stuff because he is the commissioner of the league, and he gave a few ambiguous statements as to what halting the season what it would take to halt the season or what it would take to pause the season. Now. We heard yesterday that the owners and Manfred were in a a Monday meeting and It's funny. I've never heard about these Monday meetings. Apparently they happen all the time. Apparently, this is a weekly thing that goes on which I mean not totally surprising, but he was asked And this report came out yesterday afternoon. If the owners and of him, you know, Major League baseball had discussed, potentially causing the season or what, what they would have to do because of all these positive tests. Manfred says. No, no, we didn't talk about it. It's not really something that was discussed. I'm going. Look, I'd buy if you're going to tell me you guys have a Monday meeting every week. That's fine Staff meetings, department meetings company Being just that happens. It's fun. That stuff happens all the time. And I will buy the air doing the zoo meetings with thes. These 30 owners, especially Mohr, adamantly now and maybe more Maura punctually now than you've done in the past because of what the circumstances are. But don't tell me that your agenda yesterday was not inclusive of the the Miami Marlins. Ah, testing positive. I saw a great tweet last night right before I went to bed because you know the lessons back tournament is running fine right now Down in down in Orlando, the MBA bubble is going they're going to kick their season off, Not really above. It's not really a bubble. It's true. They didn't drop a bubble or a big dome on top of it. They just sort of locked in there, but the MBA is going to play their games on Thursday there reporting no positive test. The MLS has reported eight consecutive rounds of testing their most recent one from test given on the 20 Fourth and 25th. So three and four days ago, 884 tests zero positive. So it's there's a system here. The bubble appears to be working for everyone who is playing in a bubble. You know, NFL on N B and Major League Baseball need Take note. Now the NFL is not gonna do this thing. There's no way and I don't know that the NFL could even do it if they wanted to. You have to do multiple bubble cities, probably by division. But I was talking to sash about it last night, and she was asking me that. Do you think baseball is going to try to go toe a bubble? Now? It's it's too late. Now. They can't decide to do this now. And Manfred address that last night as to why they stopped and part of the reason baseball, I think was unable to do the bubble and we all are asking it now. Well, why didn't you do the bubble? It's easy to point that finger now. I think part of it was that they put themselves into such a tight window of time to get this season, and they were very clear that they wanted to make sure this season was not going to run into November and into December. Really? Not even that deep into October, I think was the hope because of this, this second wave and now that we're seeing, you know, the United States, is it Over 1000 Covad deaths reported deaths for multiple consecutive days Now on, we're seeing countries that have not..

"On the Phillies and you know they're just excited to be outside playing. Um, there's certain things in certain aspects. I think we've all talked about it right now. Studying the hand, you know, the high five. The handshakes, whatever There's certain things aspects of games. That as an athlete, it's like, can't you get it? It's like, oh, man, and so it's taking. Sometimes there's anxiety about that. Um, so yeah, I think being exactly part of the biggest the biggest hurdle, I think for a lot of these guys. And it's that that anxiety encompasses a lot. Understandably, so Kevin, France and our good friend and yours joining us here in the Tolbert, Kruger and Brooks show from an actual baseball game. Play standpoint. Once it gets going, let's just say we get 5 10 games into the 60 game season. Do you think the baseball is going to look like baseball just without fans, or do you think Because of you know, if the ball goes around the horn or it's been touched by another player. You can't use it or some of the other. Virus related changes that are mandated. Do you think the actual game itself on the field is going to look different? Not in a major way, but maybe in a small enough to Wei Wei toe where it may make a difference down the road. I don't think so. Based on the fact that like on TV, you don't see them throwing around the art Rarely do when they pull that back shot from center field. Sometimes you'll see it going around. But other than that, no, I I don't. I don't because, uh, the Indians were the first ones that put it out What it sounds like You know, with the artificial crowd in there, the noise and it sounded good. Um, I don't think the play I just the more I've seen some of our scrimmages that we've had the last days on that, you know, like a zoom feet or Twitter feed whatever it was. The game plays great. You know, and I think we've talked out of the gulf, right. We've seen golfers. We've seen the guys that are not like the elite like the lower level, guys. There's that extra. There's extra pressure with fans take the stand away. And it's just the pressure of yourself against you in the golf ball in the leaderboard. You don't have that. You know the one guy We've all had that one guy that's chirping away that you know of all the people are really that guys, I can hear him, you know, and golfers have to deal with that. We're seeing those guys. Start to pick it up. I mean, the level of play with golfers. I think I can go over to baseball players. You're gonna see a lot of, you know, young guys, I think we're in pretty good. I do. I think more than maybe teams are taking chances with some of those enterprises bring him up to the left. Pressurized situation, even though they're look again, there is pressure, but it's just that When you add the third deck is one thing When you add the third deck with people, that's another. That's a hole. That's a that's a whole new level. And now you're not doing that You're taking one step away from them. And so that Am I help out interesting. Kevin Franzen on human guests on Kev. Let's talk Extras. I would imagine. Giant's going put Billy Hamilton if they have him on the roster on second base in extra innings, and And take their chances. You know, from with that. What do you think of it? You're looking at a filly club that has a lot of power. I can't think of who that guy would be for you guys. But what do you think of you puts play manager for a second. You have Billy Hamilton. You're Kappler. What do you want to do in the extra innings? You try to get him to third. You wanted to steal third. You want bumped him over and take your chances. What you got? I mean, it all depends how you mean my next doctor's up. If Esther's up, I might give him a chance to go to 1/3. I could also let him know. We know Buster can handle that. He might just you know, it went behind the guy on you have, Mister. Now you got, you know Runner. Third lesson lesson too. And You know, maybe whoever has the item you're open for a fly ball. There you go. I do like it. The extra inning or just having Billy Hamilton? Well, no, no. The extra innings. For this year. Yeah, absolutely. For just moving forward. Hell, no. But this year, I understand I get it. You know, I trust me. I get it. I also think that if they're going to stop these games after 12 then why not place to talk? That's the other part, but I I understand what they're trying to do. It's a safety thing. People got to get that whole thing down. It's fine. I'm all for getting these guys off field when they have to. You know, that's it's that's a thing, also in a 60 game season. We've seen 15 inning games. We've seen what they just They just decimated bullpen and you see guys going down and you see more action. You Noah's faras like guys coming from the pod from the other party coming in, and you don't have to think I doubt it. I don't know. It's crazy to think that we're actually this is a smart move this year. I'm a traditionalist. I usually would say hell, no on all of it, but I get it this year. I think you're making a team. You gotta think, 26 1st and then go to the 30 And the reason why I say that is, like, really, how many extra together you you plan on playing, you know. That's it. That's the big thing. So if you're carrying Billy Hamilton Is he one of your best 26? I think so. Based on a defense like there's your, There's your extra outfielder that it's going to run down everything. If anything, But if we're thinking, just as like, the extra any guy, I mean, you know in trust me, we have that with Roman Quinn, The Roman quick play. Uh, Quinn. It's south of hell. But like I'm sorry. Can you hold on to him and, you know, hopefully in a tent we can utilize like you still gotta play the game, you know, and then go from there..

these are all players I'm not saying that like maybe it was not the need at the time but also Carson once is basically played one full season I mean he's but you don't want to say he's injury prone

but my god these people are crazy out here they're like does your you know your are you to go in there and you're like oh god hello so yeah it's it's they needed a eagles need a sports season and and

years ago yes yes I mean there was also an dollars every year Hey and they trade on that you know we're fortunate to do that but in in this case they get a guy that they're gonna pay I think I've six and you know six and a half million over the next few years like yeah that's huge that's huge there isn't there is awesome he's an awesome player he succeeded into place it is a great do it exactly like no one will ever forget that postgame interview he did after two S. updated won the title yep and he was just like this is amazing we just wanted to was awesome and I'm happy for him and everyone's like wow I was just I mean I was floored by that yeah I I don't even know if I was floored because I feel like I've heard so many good stories prior to that but I think it was that like in the moment you're going okay this guy's gonna loses a sum is stupid and then he does it and you're going old god you're awesome yes all for the best on that but I would just say like it's you know everyone everyone has has the greatest draft on earth from the each franchise here I I've I've now experiences the worst draft of all time because of just that one pick wow the you might as well just do it this is every April in Philly so buckle up especially if the fairly large right gosh it was the best whatever I do is I thought that the best one ever and I hope that there are certain pieces of it they keep because Hey there's nothing exciting about watching a player in a suit go shake Roger Goodell's hand I'd much rather watch them with their federal hug yeah yeah right bro Hauger CD lab jacket is falling out of his girlfriend's hats or whatever like all all of it was way more intriguing and I even thought and I don't know how you do this because they're going to go back to war rooms but one of the most fun things about all this was watching all the coaches in their own environment and what we got out of that Belichick's dog whatever was happening with rape all all this stuff yeah the real thing was weird but the Belichick one I thought okay so the dog was awesome that was just phenomenal but the you know people are kind of giving him like a little crap for you know all look at you know Bella check set up here it's like you guys realize that this the first time you sat at that table like there is no I feel like there is never home if you're going to ever this is the first time that he's lived his decorum he's probably going like you know do is I I if he's married I don't know is he married remarried whatever he's got a girlfriend and he's got a friend yeah he's gonna go looking or going like we need to any changes up here okay a moving on game who know next nine years ago so he got in there and he found and he found some spots on the kitchen wall and started screaming no days off throughout and he won't like that my wife my wife even says you guys yeah that's the pictures because as a yeah yeah check out these numbers yeah there's no chance he picked out that table he was like huh huh yeah I mean there's certain things I love the aspect of families but I mean like you and I are family guys but we're also dog people like yes really like all the dogs are involved in this like this is all grass is like this is a is what you thought this is what this is what needed to happen so yeah I'm I'm all in I totally all at I do wonder if you're hearing the same sort of buzz that that I'm hearing on on all the baseball stuff what well last week in June and maybe after a month of wherever they're all going to be at and I would not believe this two weeks ago the friendly it sounds like they're planning on not only play baseball but playing in everybody's home parks this year Vienna yeah I don't know what to think about it I I've had I mean you think about this all day yeah I've been I I because look the minute I I I've mentioned you before was I love baseball morning love it I'm just sick and tired of all these like you know different ideas and plans give me the real thing I want to talk about what the real plan is when that is until then like I don't I don't want to like you will I'm not saying you and I right now our waste our time talking about it but like it I mean it's a good to have these like you know these these Dotson and go okay so you know the logistical stuff do you as a Philly I would have in in the ten teams that are involved there is a city that has two teams that happens to be the number one you know place on on earth there or at least in America you know for the the the cover nineteen that's New York out there also that's a little bit of the you know I don't know how they do that I think they're talking about like you know playing a lot more games neutral site for them maybe I don't know but I'll tell you this the the the ten team regions I like it I love it it's an idea the reason why I don't love it completely is the fact that it is an absolute devastating blow to any team that's in the east you talk about rotations for days that are in this in the east but that's a good thing because then we'd be talking about rotations again and you know who has what and you have the you know the Mets and the Yankees and if the Phillies have a good you know good to have not really good rotation but then the nationals you know pretty good the Braves pretty good but I mean there that is a.

"Ever seen a group of fans this more just like all all of this summer's hit a home run well that's weird I'm sorry I was on Instagram I I mean that's that's the result of his odd there's there's only just a wee bit of reaction but the funny part of the video and you can hear his voice I mean he's legit mad he is sitting back in his chair furious I thought he would have been comforted by it because if there was any act that confirms that Kevin Franzen should be retired that was it he does not have infielder hands anymore once upon a time he did he doesn't anymore once upon a time I used to be able to hit a lot of three pointers now the basketball feels like a medicine ball in my hands it's called turning forty cabin out of debt out of bed so anyway that was as good time as good so I promised him when he said it was you cross me last night I'm like no I had no idea this happened but when I saw the look the Mister don't worry we'll crush you tonight so we did I listen to the mark whether show on KNBR six city San Francisco okay as the average D. to San Matteo V. sports later let's get back to your calls how about Jeffrey in Petaluma Jeffrey you're on these boards later high what's the goods do hello yeah are you there yeah okay I'm sorry I turn the radio down but good move yes you're on the phone if you worked on the phone then we would be having a really hard time hearing you yeah alright now he's not there you are we lost thank you Jeffrey which which I think the car by that was god making fun of us please go ahead the baseball season it's what what on September first coming back I don't think we're going to make the plan but I don't know why not your everyone general with every three game winner living street I mean we need to get sure but I mean we just well for the most part the back end of our relief so that we Kerry grounded in June and I think that's probably a good pairing he knows what he's doing it seems all of your work on the Dodgers roster we just got to chill out and enjoy the ride twenty ten I don't know if anyone remembers we didn't we didn't get the playoffs and talk a lot John just the overall reaction is just ludicrous that's all yeah Jeffrey thank you for the call you are so quintessentially bay area believe me that's a compliment I'm I'm with you you don't find sports fans in a lot of cities that do that have fun but but I think that's the prevailing thought here it's certainly mine because your other option is to be ticked off our ride no clue what that's ever gotten anybody so yeah I understand watching Brandon belt hit it can be frustrating I got it so does he by the way he totally yeah that's it so he's frustrated to Brandon Crawford most of the season has been frustrating to watch Joe panic was frustrating to watch and then suddenly you emotionally felt tied to a woman felt bad that he was sent packing by the way the Mets are going to sign him tomorrow if you haven't heard and so in many ways maybe that'll make some of us feel better I he's a New Yorker he's back home he's got a job it's going to be a major league deal so that's that's pretty cool too but yeah that's the same conversation I had with my twelve year old on the way out of the game last night or a couple nights ago he's like well that's it they're you know they're going on there wildcard gone season over I'm like but you know maybe probably but then again a five game winning streak could start tomorrow and maybe it just did I don't know you know nobody thought June July was gonna happen so who knows what the second of August as far as to Clinton San Jose next up on these boards later hi Clint what's going on tonight hello yes grant what's up Hey Hey I love your show thanks for taking my call thank you I'd like to add to something you said earlier about each day each game we have to be in that moment and what this season well like all baseball season you've got to take the first game is as important as the last year you gotta be resilient as a team and that's what they're showing this year then I'm kind of proud of it and looking forward to tomorrow's game no I don't have much of it is saying that but thank you again for your great show okay thank you claimed pre shave that I'll let me share and I won't say who and I won't say what team in a recent conversation I had here at the ballpark with a visiting member of the media and I asked him I said Hey how's how's your day going how's life yeah he says man they did the gig is good he goes but not really enjoying this team I will share with you that team has a better record than the giant steel and I said now why is that is basically insinuates that the team I just coasts they close is like the only a lot of talent but they honored she he's sort of question their heart and I thought to myself well that's the opposite of the giants the giants are talent deficient in in many areas we get that by they've been resilient they've been at many times this year the only ones who believe that they were any good and then they over achieve and dots heart I wonder I wonder which kind of TV rather rude for would you rather they had a lot of talent but they just slightly under achieved or would you rather they're a little short on talent and they over achieved it and I'm not asking that question to to to lead you to the answer I truly wonder what you think because it's entertainment we all want to see the most talented players but we also want to see players who show some grit and and show some effort and and come back repeatedly when they're down that's just those the kinds of human beings were attracted to odd and that's the giants that's the giants this year they they hit the ball better in the seventh eighth and ninth than they do in any any other ratings you know at times they can seem pulseless and and then pull fall the sudden they have some amazing comeback other speaks highly of them for sure anyway cambiar Ingraham Berkley Abu are we talking about tonight and rail all the world's a stage so we have to give it up for Leo Madison Bumgarner you know me in those leos Andrea we we we've we've had our our struggles through the years for sure but I will also say that you you predicted a very strong finish to the year for all from that bomb yeah he's thirty it's etcetera turn increased ambition cycle of new beginnings and you know on YouTube is different but an international audience got to see what we do you know take for granted more not take for granted but what we're used to I mean he was just great seven innings one hit any reached base three times yeah so is the first starting pitcher since nineteen twenty have a hidden two walks while allowing one hit or fewer so have you been on the Elias sports bureau dot com or something well you know what I too much Twitter and stats a little too much Virgo but great interview with yes I mean he's always inspiring as well and you know I'm feeling really positive and I'm going to a Grateful Dead night tomorrow will be the games so thinking good thoughts and know that that was really inspiring I thought it was an excellent game and there's just a lot of hope for the future thank you so much I'll tell you something about what address speaks about there when she says increased ambition Bumgarner was really ticked after his start in Denver and without going into details he stated he put in a lot of extra effort and time and work in between these two starts the one in Denver and the one that he had tonight on what was he found you know who knows but he said that in Denver it just wasn't able to put the ball where you wanted to tonight obviously he was in he said the amount of effort that you that he put in between these two stars because that's it's not sustainable in other words he wear myself out if you did that every time but he said you know you can get away with it every once in awhile in other words it angered him at such a level that he just works himself into a one hitter that I believe is what's called increased ambition there you go who knows because usually all about that I have a Peter in redwood city Hey Peter what's going on tonight no not too much whose first make a comment on what you said about Bumgarner yeah I think that's just common sense anytime you have a look at him losing enter first name and home of the series generally repressed picture will win that's pretty much yeah because of the targets has if you look at stats and stuff like that well I mean I gender generally your Best Picture way Peter Peter hang on let me respond that real quick because if you're gonna do stats I mean generally your best pitcher will win it the if he's your best pitcher your are generally here will just where and when he pitches that's that's what number one aces do let me tell you what the team is losing but his eyes are losing streak you look at teams like Pittsburgh remember losing one they get their best pitcher the patch generally that pressure will stop losing streak I don't know I'm I'm quite glad glad Paul mariner one and eventually stemmed vision of course the guys you had a year to get stronger I'll advise twenty nine going to thirty had increased ambitious goal so you don't need to stars now you're back you're not well but they don't they don't hurt either they they never heard of the stars never heard well it's N. as far as like you know they're being tied to a team at all at I look at a like this you know and I'm I'm Chicago troops but I look at it like this if you are struck terror when you look at sports and you should never look and it's like people say my team it's not your team if an athlete sees on the street they don't care about you if you're out work today to care if you get a raise or not so you have to look at it as sports is as you watch it you'll enjoy it but don't take it personal don't care if they win or lose enjoy it and say Hey they don't care about me if they see me on the street why should I give a damn water per person well Peter hang on first off here's one thing that I've never tried to do and Peter I I get where you're coming from and and thanks so much and especially you know come in for it you know you come from Chicago and and you know you want to talk about generalities a well in general as Chicago sports fan in a San Francisco sports fans are going to look at things a little bit differently we we we don't grow up in the same environment in terms of sports but here here's what I would say I tried for the most part not to tell other people how to enjoy their sports if you want to freak out and scream and yell and do I mean Hey who am I to stop you if you want to be super Zen about it great you can you can do that too but it sounds like you're almost insinuating Hey you shouldn't care all because they don't care about you well then what the hell are we doing here I mean you care because you do this is actually one of the centerpieces of the sports documentarian you umbrella that Gotham Chopra has started I've talked a lot about it because he's a friend and he did this Steph curry Facebook what series that just came out and a and a lot of his stuff is called the religion of sports and therefore why sports matters and sports matters for a bunch of reasons err err you know too long of a list for us to go through about why sports matters and why we care about them I mean.

"Good morning to everybody Kruger with you soon hopefully be joined by the great Kevin Franzen who I believe is making his way in here but happy Tuesday to you happy July ninth home run derby last night man was phenomenal you know my kid was into it so I taped it and I and I started watching it of the prelims and I fell asleep I gotta be honest watching John Peterson and Bragman watching you know bell in the **** you junior and just the first round Vlady taking down Chapman I'm kind of dozing because I could see how long the how long and arduous the the home run derby was going to be but then I awake in for Jack Peterson and Vlady Guerrero in round two and it was it was great how many was a terrific show just the drama going back and forth that's a fun event it really is it's a fun event and you know some people compared to the dunk contest I think the dunk contest is probably a little bit more played out then home run derby maybe it was because they had some youth in the in the deal yesterday you get Vlady get hit an all rookie final with Pete Alonso but I just felt like you know home run derby in past years I thought it was a little tired was little played out but last night was a great show it really was a great show and where to go you know I mean flat if you missed it Vlady Guerrero goes twenty nine bombs in round one against Chapman and easily moves on to the second round then he gets to the second round and in three different tie breakers he Alice John Peterson forty thirty nine and at that point he kind of saw the handwriting on the wall that may be Vlad was gonna tire himself out and sure enough he did he retired himself out basically put it all out there for the for the for the first two rounds and he didn't have very much in the final round still put together twenty two home runs which is not bad Peter Alonso the New York Mets morning for any steals the steel home run derby twenty three twenty two a battle of rookies and I thought it was just cool just Alonzo just a fun spirit as well in the end is what Brays cousin or brother in law are whatever was pitching to a relative and Alonso gets the win and it was big because Alonso make two million million Bucks Freddie along only makes five hundred and fifty five thousand for his for his salary because that I guess is the major league minimum and he makes a million Bucks last night and then he gives a hundred thousand dollars to to you know charities of his choice and it was just cool it was it was a cool night for Major League Baseball to kinda flex a little bit with some of its young town yeah I know is special it was a special hold the whole thing was was right I I still think two minute rounds or what they need to have instead of four instead of four and then you get the four maybe in the final round but the first two rounds in the two minutes so they're not when he gets the final these guys are crushed that's the biggest thing these guys are crushed did you see Peterson's line I feel sorry for Guerrero he's got to keep hitting the fact that effective laddie if which is just taking gangster hacks in the final round after what he had done already I mean that that's being twenty years old how much is this going to interesting to me how much a BP how many rounds of B. P. G. take two guys take pre game or is it just a very game to game do you bag out do you suppose I mean most guys now or not even taking BP because they're hitting in gaming man between at batsman no they're they're not even taking the V. they're they're doing everything indoors there are you're doing everything underneath but is that B. P. underneath yeah yeah I mean well it's their routine whatever the routine maybe like Bryce Harper has this he's had this deal since probably two thousand and twelve and so it's two thousand twelve there if he he's had the same routine just like you know don't don't give me that but if you have any does everything indoors and the the only thing that he changed in the every peers was he didn't take on field batting practice because he was tired of hitting homers he was tired of being a show everyone was wanting him to put on a show right and so then he was getting out of his element as the only thing you change but Freddie Freeman I'll take VP once maybe every two home stance however you personally when your plan did you wanna take BP every day you take BP that is hi sweetie three times ever got tired I don't know I just never got tired never played so you would you rather take P. P. at five o'clock or would you rather skip B. P. at five o'clock in hit you know between at bats downstairs get ready for your next at bat this seems like now they have that ability they all but no one really does that nobody goes downstairs and hits between at bats I mean you might hear in there but does that if a guy so on a hundred you don't think guys go down there and try to see the high nineties at least now that nobody goes hits between between at bats maybe the DH says but now I'm I'm telling you there's work I don't know I don't even know how to say it like that as I said just kind of baffling me right now going between a massive hit well you have the capability if you want you got to get a why would you want to do it you had a kid you got the game going on you want to see the picture gone all I know if you're trying to get in this whole thing but well that's if you're in the game but if you're not a game like for you and show you have a routine now you can go in and you'll hit but you'll do it you know it for me I would go and sit in a in a sauna for like ten minutes in the third inning if the if the team had it because you get a natural swat going did you go run then you go to a a and you keep this whole thing up because you got a time it out to when there's the possibility of you're gonna be pinch hitting right after you got out that one of but you you're not in line how soon before you know how close to your ad bad do you want to be taken swings is it do you guys wanna take swings hours before a pensioner yeah you're coming off the bench you're not the only eyes different every day I'd like there's guys I knew they were great considers that would hit maybe in like a third inning and then just go chill out there engine weight and they just grab that and go myself I like my routine of of being like being hot being sweaty then going to stretch run hit go out watch the game and if I had a feeling there's gonna I I would take like five swings right before maybe like ten minutes before if there is that you know there you can't time anything out it was a we it's weird to have the derby in that Vlady it buddy junior at ninety one jacks I believe thirty more I think than maybe anybody's ever hit in a home run derby and he still doesn't get the wind so but it but again like what people want to do is great and senior and I were talking about last night like if he had his normal BP guy along the ones that I mean you're you're talking ninety one homers from him his BP guy in the semis against wrong the canoe junior was Wrobel it's an Oconee is guy killed him and you kind of saw him get he kinda through like a little hissy fit to he kind of he gave away last two swings his use I saw that because the guy was any kept on pointing like he wanted on the the base he wanted on the white line he wanted on the white line of the right handed batters box so you can imagine the inside white line right next on play that's where he was pointing kept pointing there you want a little bit off the plate a guy could not hit he kept on going like middle way and I was going out fell pull the file for use in some the left hand I was what I was going to get into what it would look very there was amazing what people want to do is great too because he did hit a lot of balls right center the last fall the though the walk off into the top of the trees if you've never been a progressive feel that is an absolute tank but what Ronald the Kunu junior dead and to see his spray chart what is I I I mean I I I I don't think we got robbed we got to see you know some great young talent it's B. P. again it's B. P. but the line the line the beauty of Raleigh can you junior is the line the line ability for him to smoke balls he was I I feel like if you go by in today's game especially in in his home run derby is usually get two points for going to write you know Oppel if you get two points for that Homer or they should put like extra money extra money for you know the T. mobile what whatever the assistance was that they were doing last night they res six hundred forty seven thousand dollars for if you go on both you get double and that I'm I mean it was it was special what we saw from occurring you junior and Alonso it benefited from Vlad doing what he did but again we got to see a twenty year old Alonso as bad as the man he's got power to all fields everything everything he hits is just I is he like his random shots go out in the end to get it and goes out yeah I know he is is a Big Boy he is a boy I stood next to him and I and I really felt I don't even know how you feel like he's an offense of linemen in your like the your map your your memory right you you look at memory to next to a glance she and you're going to call that was like me standing next to him like he did.
