"We're all upset with what's taking place but it's kind of a fascinating story line to watch because these two guys started out as the left side of the infield for the padres of course machado playing third tattoos at shortstop and it looked like these two. We're going to be the pillars for the padres to move around moving forward right. These are the guys they were going to build around. They look to trade. Eric hosmer at the deadline to get out of that contract at first base. So that leaves these two gentlemen as the big bats in the middle and to see them going at it was certainly not what you want to see a padres fan but machado seems to be maturing seems to be understanding and working with tat tease ultimately get him to understand the situation and what they need at this particular moment but for the padres. The collapse continued. And this team is going to miss. The post season is it due to injuries is it due to performance. Is it due to the clubhouse. Whatever it may be. It's certainly not the outcome that they had anticipated out. There in san diego in the year started and you can understand why frustrations are starting to boil over both inside that clubhouse in outside for that fan base but that was one of the biggest stories of the weekend when you had machado and tetechies going at it for everybody to see and if you haven't yet check out that video it's pretty entertaining but that'll do it for segment number. Three here of the gsm see baseball. Podcast brought to you. By the mc podcast network. I'm your host kevin. Mahalick will step aside here one last time for a word from one of our sponsors one of our sisters shows but when we come back we're going to continue our talk around major league baseball. What we think about these postseason races. What other storylines took place stick around. We're gonna talk about it right after this want to.

"I'm your host kevin. Mahalick appreciate you guys tuning in. It is thursday. August twenty six. Hopefully you guys are having a fantastic week. So far out there we are cruising right along almost still the month of september about five weeks left here in the regular season and these wildcard races are heating up the divisional races. A few of them have certainly been determined. A couple of other seemed to be coming down the stretch. It's going to take the full one sixty to ultimately decide some seeding for the postseason dam. Even if you're in a division where it pretty much has been determined such as the white sox or the brewers. You're still fighting for that home. Field advantage in the postseason so every team still has something to play for here is the calendar is about to flip over to september. And we're coming around the final turn of the regular season but we got a great show lined up for you guys here today. A lot to talk about in the first couple of segments. We're going to get into some news. Some notes stories reports everything going on across major league baseball and then in the final thirty minutes or so the last two segments. mlb dot com released their updated prospect rankings or the minor league rankings. And we're going to break those down. I'm gonna let you guys know where they have. Everybody ranked so you'll know if your team is in a good position moving forward or if they're the future doesn't look very brights like my philadelphia. Phillies here locally. I mean my goodness but we'll get to that at the end of today's show in the second half for the final two segments hearing segment number. One we're going to start out with an incredible story and for those of you listening out there. If you've never heard of ray caldwell you would be in the same boat that i was as of about twenty four hours ago but he. Espn ran a story. About ray caldwell that dates back to august twenty fourth nineteen nineteen. They ran this on august. Twenty fourth a few days ago here in twenty twenty one so one hundred and two years later but ray caldwell the mlb pitcher who survived a lightning strike and stayed in to finish the game Yeah that's right. He was struck by lightning on the mound stayed in and still got the final out. So what happened that day. Well let's go in our time machine back to nineteen nineteen where ray caldwell was pitching for the cleveland team for the first time on august. Twenty four th one thousand nine hundred nineteen and ray caldwell who five years earlier back in one thousand nine hundred. Fourteen had been regarded as a transcendent talent. Perhaps one of the greatest pitchers ever before a drinking problem moved him to the outskirts of baseball. But cleveland player-manager trees speaker was in a push for the playoffs and he wanted to give caldwell another chance and it looked like a great move because on august twenty fourth nineteen nineteen caldwell was absolutely dealing for cleveland. Players called cod well slim. He went by the nickname slim because of his six to one hundred and ninety pound frame and now he leveraged every ounce of it to produce an above average fastball with an elite curve ball but his most devastating pitch his out pitch was one of baseball's best spitballs. Now this pitch was still legal back in one thousand nine hundred nineteen and caldwell had incredible command of it and especially on august twenty four th against the philadelphia athletics as he held the as for four hits and a walk through eight innings but as the ninth-inning started it started out as a clear day but the cloud started to roll in fast off of lake erie and cleveland's players who had grown accustomed to the lake defect weather took their positions open to grind out a quick three more outs before the skies really opened up so called welwyn out to the mount. He got too easy infield pop-ups to open up the ninth inning. So with only one more out to go all of a sudden a storm fully opened upon the field and just as called was getting set. A flash from the sky exploded down in the middle of the field. It is said that. Shortstop ray chapman fell to serbs of electrcity. Go down his leg and the violence of the lightning strike caused players to die for the ground. Cleveland catcher steve. O'neill said he took off his mask and threw it as far as he could as he didn't want any bolts to attract towards him but five seconds after the bolt hit the ground. Everybody looked around in the indians players. Were okay but their newest teammate. Not so much. Caldwell laid on his back arms spread wide open out cold on the mound as the lightning strike had hit him directly so as the players cold. Well the first man who touches him leaped in the air saying he had been zapped by called wells prone body so everybody took a step back just stared at him called wells. Chest is smoldering where the bolt burned it. Everyone was terrified to touch him. And all of them thought is rate caldwell dead so fast forward about five minutes right when they were ready to pronounce him dead. The thirty one year old pitcher starts groaning and crawls back to his knees then his feet. The teammates rejoiced but still everybody kept their distance from a guy who's just just on fire. They offered a walk him off the field as he heads to the hospital. But caldwell said quote. I have one more out to get. He's insistent enough that eventually. The manager speaker walks back to center field and lets him stay on the mound to try to finish the complete game. Caldwell looks at chapman says me. The dang ball turn towards home plate. Umpires brick owens and billy evans remained flanked around the mound for a minute as the players got back to their position as shortstop jumping. Joe dugan digs in at the plate waiting for the to signal play ball and as they do the first pitch caldwell groups in dunkin grounds out to third baseman. Willie gardner who makes the play cleanly throws him out at first and there. It is way called route survives. A lightning strike in just finished a complete game to win the most important game of his life. So evan evans said to the media that day we all feel the tingle of the electric-shock running through our system particularly our legs caldwell was short and sweet with the media afterwards saying it felt like somebody came up with a board and hit me on the top of the head and knocked me down but my goodness gracious. Could you imagine pitching and being struck by lightning. That makes me think to my days growing up playing baseball in no. I wasn't struck by lightning but it was the year two thousand just outside of dallas fort worth when i was playing some little league ball down there and all of a sudden pitching. I was on the mound and you could feel a cold wind. Come flying in. The sky turned slightly green. And then all of a sudden the tornado. Alarms went off. So everybody scatters from the field trying to find their parents going into the bathrooms. I was with my mom at the time because my dad was traveling for work. We decided to get in the car. In head home there was softball size. Hail coming down so we had to pull over a couple of different times i. We went into a sonic fast food restaurant. If you guys have ever been to a sonic you know they have the overhangs that allowed us to get out of the softball size hail to not shatter our windshield or shatter. Any of the other windows in the car another time we stopped at an office depot which was a very structural. I was twelve years old at the time. Eleven years old whether it was nine hundred ninety nine or two thousand. I can't remember exactly. But i had my baseball helmet on and then finally we made it back to the house. You guys can search it.

Tele friend sheriff's with one of your buddies out there. Click that share button. Send this video or this podcast out. No video here yet. But send the podcast out to one of your buddies say. Hey check this out. Kevin's playing word association. What word would you put to your favorite ball ballclub out there worth where they currently stand here as. We're almost through the month of august. So twenty twenty one coming around the home stretch right the final turn for you horse fans out there so it's going to be a lot of fun here with both wildcard races heating up and a few teams getting hot out there. So we'll do this across the standings here as well starting out in the american league here for segment number three looking at the american league east and going from the basement up right the baltimore orioles like we talked about losers of eighteen straight games. My goodness gracious what What can you say if you're a baltimore fan out there. They've lost eighteen in a row. They'll now face the angels at home here as again. They're trying to catch those toward one. Thousand nine hundred sixty one philadelphia phillies for the record twenty three consecutive single season losses. But the word. I'm putting for the orioles is it's a waiting game. So it's a word or a phrase right. It's going to be a couple of words for those of you already saying. hey man. that's more than one word. It's going to be a short phrase. Alright so it's a waiting game right. The orioles are poised for their third one hundred loss season in the last four years. They've shown very little indication that they're ready to turn the corner and starts really contending. But adly rush mond and grayson rodriguez or finally knocking on the door of the big league level two of the top prospects within the organization in cedric mullins. Really looks like an emerging star. So he's really the only guy currently at the big league level that you could put a lynch pin in and say hey it looks like rebuilding maybe coming to an end. We got cedric molins. And all star out there in centerfield next on the list and fourth place. You have the toronto blue jay sixty four and fifty eight three and seven in their last ten games so it's been a tough stretch including losing four out of their last five. They lost two out of three to tigers over the weekend and things don't get any easier when the white sox come to town so for the blue jays. I have close but no cigar again. They've improved this year. Things are looking better there in toronto and the the expanded postseason in twenty twenty. Got them into the playoffs with a thirty two. And twenty eight record after three previous straight losing seasons in their remaining relevant once again a handful of games out in the wild garp headlined by vlad guerrero junior boba shit and upstart pitching staff bargain signing of robbie ray but they still may be a year away from true contention so i would say close but no cigar to all of those blue jay fans out there hoping to make the playoffs this year in third place now is the boston. Red sox seven games out of first place. They are five and five in their last ten. So they've kind of righted. The ship a sweep against the yankees are being swept by the yankees. Really drop them down in the standings and man my sane for them is danger will robinson because things have now. Look good there in boston. They had a half game lead in the american league east. On july thirtieth. This was the same day where the front office traded for kyle schwarzer and a pair of middle relievers but that has quickly evaporated to seven games and they are trending in the wrong direction. So danger will robinson for all you red sox fans next in second place you have the new york yankees man talk about hot ballclub right now new york nine and one in their last ten winners of nine straight to get to seventy two and fifty two on the season swept red sox followed that up by sweeping the twins with their fourth game on sunday being postponed due to the hurricane here in the northeast and now they travel to atlanta to face off against the braves one of the hottest teams in the national league so yankees brave certainly one of the best match ups here early on in the week but for the yankees i have the quote it is alive right to quote franken stein. He is back are rejuvenated. Reinvigorated whichever synonym you wanna use. But they are alive and my goodness gracious since adding joey gallo. Anthony rizzo starter andrew. Heaney i mean this team has certainly turned around. And they got the best record in the american league here in august and our right firmly in that playoff talk now but still in first place the tampa bay race seven and three in their last ten so as hot as new. York's ben only able to game two games. In the american league east in the raise at seventy seven and forty eight now have a short series against the phillies here. Another team that scuffling early on here in august and continuing through august but for tampa bay. It's unconventional greatness further race. I mean charlie. Morton moves on blake. Snell moves on tyler glass now now on the injured list so ryan. Yarborough is the only pitcher on the staff is thrown more than one hundred innings. The team starters ranked twenty eighth in the majors in innings pitched so it's very unique. Approach down there in tampa bay to building a staff but once again top. Ten in the majors team. Era it's all coming together and it's working for the tampa bay race transitioning announced the american league central in the basement and the central. You have the minnesota twins losers of three straight fifty. Four and seventy overall as they were swept by the yankees. They'll now face off against the red sox as life doesn't get any easier for minnesota. And i have them at a crossroads bone thugs and harmony. Reach.

The latest across major league baseball and sunday night was the twenty twenty one little league classic. It took place between the cleveland indians. In the la angels and first off the uniforms they were pretty sweet right so the angels. They wore uniform that said west basically being from the region that they would be located in if they were to take place in the little league world series. And then you head. Cleveland which had great lakes across the chest. I thought that was pretty cool. So they didn't wear their actual game. Uniforms didn't wear their actual team. Cities names whatever it was. They were the regents. Like they were part of the little league world series which i thought was a nice touch and very fitting there in williamsport pennsylvania so the pitching matchup jose suarez went for the a the angels cow could trill went for the indians in. The indians pulled out the victory by a score of three to nothing so the angels unfortunately did not get on the board. They kept otani in the yard but speaking of otani how cool would it have been to be a little league ball player there in williamsport. Pa there were reports pictures. Were mike. trout's otani were interacting with all the different teams there and in the little league world series you also have the united states brackets and then the international bracket so. I'm sure kids from all over the world we're excited to meet otani and droughts and get autograph signed and be introduced to the legends across the board one guy trout. Sure fire hall of famer and otani the most electric guy in baseball today. That's just got to be an absolutely awesome feeling for those kids to be able to meet those guys so this was the fourth literally classic that took place. There's been one every year since two thousand seventeen of course with the exception of twenty twenty due to the global pandemic that took place bowman fields is where it took place in williamsport holds just over twenty five hundred fans so very exclusive event. Where all the different kids from all the different teams. Get to go. And then just a handful of actual fans or general public get to attend the event which certainly makes it that much cooler for your team to make it to the little league world series so the first one in twenty seventeen the pirates beat the cardinals in two thousand eighteen. The mets tap the phillies in twenty nineteen. We had the cubs over the pirates. And then last year's classic was supposed to be red sox orioles that did not take place so this year they obviously had the angels and indians filling in there but like i said zero runs scored for otani so the indians able to basically hang on for three to nothing win which has to feel good. If you're an indians fan out there so speaking of the little league world series just briefly and update where we had here in the. Us team out of hawaii has gone to and owen their first two games so there are advancing through the winners bracket on one side. And on the other side you have california who has won their first. Two games so michigan texas will play to see who faces hawaii in the winters brackets and on the other side. You have oregon and south dakota facing off to see who will face california other teams. That are still alive. You have new jersey. you also have washington in nebraska hanging alive in the losers brackets. Louisiana and ohio. Going to face off against each other. New hampshire is waiting to see who they will play in the losers bracket so unfortunately at this point connecticut. Florida tennessee in pennsylvania. Have all been eliminated. But i'll keep you guys posted on what's going on there across the board at the little league world series. We won't get into as much detail like we did in the college game but always fun to pay attention there for the kids to see how they're doing and how things are coming along. So who's going to play in the twenty twenty two little league classic. It has been reported that it will be the red sox in the orioles facing off in twenty twenty two so the red sox in the orioles the orioles like i said we're supposed to take part in twenty twenty but also getting boston involve will be pretty cool for the kids and for the national media to pay attention to this game here so that'll be a fun next year with al. Least matchup taken place. There and williamsport pennsylvania so jumping around now across major league baseball looking at some injuries. Let's dive in here. If you're a new york mets fan you got gotta lock going on on the injury train. Havi air bias. He was activated from the injured list on sunday. So good news there for mets fans but linda. You're a right oblique. Strain needs a little bit. More time the mets do intend to activate him at some point this week so those two guys are going to be back in the lineup. Shortly and then on the pitching staff jacob degrom. He's in a holding pattern in his rehab. He will not throw a baseball. he will have another. Mri on august twenty seventh so it looks like he may be done for the year. Because even with the mm-hmm. I guess if that comes back clean it's gonna take two weeks to get him potentially ramp back up three weeks. You're looking at maybe one to two weeks left of him in the regular season with the mets sinking fast It's going to be difficult to try to rush back here at any point and maybe just keep him sidelined healthy hopefully for twenty twenty. Two noah syndergaard coming off a tommy. John surgery is scheduled to throw at least one more live batting practice session this week before. He heads out on rehab assignment. So time's running out on both of those guys to get back here in the twenty twenty one season and that may be a bit short shortsighted you darvish for the padres. He threw a bullpen session on friday and another one on sunday. His first two cents. He exited his start on august twelfth with lower back tightness so it looks like he could be slated to the return to the rotation this week potentially in time to make a nice start against the dodgers coming up this week. And what's now a big game for san diego speaking of the dodgers. mookie betts. He will participate in a simulated game on dodger stadium here on monday. He ran the basis swung in the cage. Shag fly balls over the weekend against the mets on sunday before the game. So he's looking to progress to be back here shortly and then clayton kershaw. He's throwing from one hundred and twenty feet at high velocity coming off a left forearm inflammation. He could throw a bullpen session. Here coming up this week as he works to get back into the rotation for the new york yankees geo your shell up left hamstring strain. He was set on his rehab assignment to double a. Somerset on sunday. So he's progressing to be back here. In the coming days luis severino had an mri eye on his right shoulder that revealed no structural damage. But he has been shut down from throwing through at least the weekend. He's coming off a tommy john surgery but was scratched from a rehab start after feeling some tightness in his shoulder but good news the. Mri came back and did not show anything serious. Glacier tour has had a left thumb strain he fielded..

"To you by gsm podcast network. I'm your host. Kevin mahalick appreciate you guys. Listening in hopefully are weeks off to a fantastic. Start here if you're listening to this monday on your commute home or tuesday on your way to work over lunch whenever it is. I appreciate you guys tuning in as we continue to grind here during the major league baseball season. One hundred sixty two games and things are ever changing. We've seen that when it comes to the national league. Mvp race bryce harper going from a long shot to the second favorite in just a matter of two weeks. So that's where you you gotta constantly try to stay one step ahead of the market but now on the american league side of things not as much to discuss when it comes to potential winners of the awards and is anybody surprised by. What's going on out there. I mean if you're looking at some of the websites when it comes to the odds and tracking the odds. There's really only two guys that are having this conversation. And it's shohei otani in vlad guerrero junior now you do have to go back to june twenty eighth where shohei otani was plus one. Oh two in vlad. Guerrero was plus one hundred so these guys were neck and neck at the end of june when it came to odds about potentially winning the award but fast forward now to august eighth and shohei otani is now minus seven fifty. So i believe that. If you've been one hundred dollars you'd win twenty five bucks on a bet for shohei otani. In vlad guerrero junior is up to plus six hundred so in a matter of a month and a half year again things have changed from even to now potentially one of the most lopsided races in major league baseball history when it comes to the odds in these awards now who else is on the list again. I don't want to give you guys just the top two and discuss them. We're going to kind of run through the top ten here and we'll go down from ten to one kind of top of the list to the bottom now. A ton of guys are at plus ten thousand which is best for tenth on the list. You have last year's mvp. jose abrego. You bogus shet byron. Buxton nelson cruz. Mike trout jordan alvarez. Jan carlos stan but three of the guys so i think at the top of the list who potentially would have the best shot at maybe getting hot here down the stretch and potentially win the award but again you have to look at the teams as well and jose ramirez for the cleveland. Indians is one of those guys that is always in the mvp conversation. He's always at the top of the list. He's been good not great so far this season he didn't to fifty five on the year. He's got twenty four home runs sixty six. Rbi's thirteen stolen bases. He has picked things up over the past seven games where he's hitting two eighty six with a couple of home runs and four. Rbi's but the cleveland indians overall is team being a number of games back in the american league and now under five hundred. I think that leads to you know uphill treading when it comes to him potentially getting back into the conversation so some of the other guys on the list. I think may have a better shot at plus ten thousand. The first one is aaron. Judge of the new york yankees. We all know what's going on in new york. The yankees are getting hot and pushing their way back into the wild card conversation trying to get back into that american league east race and aaron judge. Just having a fantastic year. He's sitting in to seventy six twenty. Three home runs fifty two. Rbi is the only problem is he hasn't been. He hasn't been getting hot here recently. He's only hitting two. Oh seven in his last seven games only two twenty four in his last fifteen games so even though the yankees are getting hot. Aaron judge hasn't been the reason why offensively which is why i still think he's very much on the outside looking in when it comes to the awards another guy at plus ten thousand and the last guy at plus ten thousand we're going to talk about his jd..

"I'm your host kevin mahalick. It is monday. August ninth appreciates you guys listening in. Hopefully you had a fantastic weekend there myself. I had some fun. Friday nights went to a triple a baseball game. The philadelphia phillies affiliate. The lehigh valley iron picks saw the first in person baseball game. Or second. yeah go onto an orioles. Astros game earlier this year so i minor league game. I attended in person here and a couple of years and it was a heck of a ballgame had to leave a little bit early due to my three and a half year. Old daughter had to get her home for bedtime and timely fashion. But it was a heck of a ballgame with the iron pigs winning in extra innings grand slam hit by both teams so very entertaining. Nice to get back out to the ballpark enjoy. Some minor league action all the festivities that come with minor league baseball such as all the different mascots all the different events so certainly a fun time. And if you guys haven't been out to a minor league baseball game in quite some time do yourself a favor and go out right. If you google closest minor league team to yourself. You'll realize you'll have some fun. It's different than a major league atmosphere. Where entertainment and the crowd certainly more at the forefront in between innings during innings. Friday night was ghostbusters night. So they had a bunch of ghosts. Ago busters A lot of people dressed up in costumes. it was just a great atmosphere and a ton of fun saturday. Then got out for around a golf at a good time out there. Whacking the ball around shot. Eighty one so. I had myself a nice out in finally figuring out my irons i was able to hit some greens in regulation. So it's a dime for me to hit. The pro tour is basically. What i'm getting at here but hopefully you guys had a great weekend out there as well. The weather's fantastic had ourselves a fall like weekend weather here in the mid eighties jumping back up to the nineties this week. So summer isn't going anywhere just yet but ultimately still enjoying things while we can about a month or so here away from the unofficial end of summer in labor day coming down the stretch of the major league baseball season. But we got a great episode lined up for you guys here today and unfortunately here in segment number one. We're going to do something. I haven't had to do in quite some time. And that's discuss a former major league player who has passed away. Jr richard unfortunately passed away at the age of seventy one here in the past week. So we're going to discuss his career and it is certainly one of the more fascinating careers. And i'm ashamed to say i didn't know who. Jr richard was but after doing some research looking into his career. Certainly fascinating what he was able to accomplish. Back in the nineteen seventies for the houston. Astros as he is an astro hall of famer. But not a major league baseball hall of famer but After reading about him it certainly seems like he would have been had. Not an unfortunate event ended his career which will talk about in more detail. Then insignia number. Two we're going to get into some nationally geese conversation. I haven't really done this. Since i've been host to the podcast and that's talk about my philadelphia phillies in great detail but for the first time in about ten years they've won eight straight games so i think it's time for me to spend some time on him. Give them some props give him..

"Kim role servicer bryant trevor story but some other guys i think could still be moved. Ian kennedy of the rangers the veteran reliever at five nine. Era some potential landing spots for him or the blue jays in the dodgers. The dodgers are interested in kimbro but can't Close that particular deal. I think they can move on and turn their attention to ian kennedy. Who would certainly be a nice consolation prize. You have daniel hudson of the nationals and other relief pitcher he could be part of the fire sale. He's allowed just one earned. Run in eight appearances this month. So he's been very good here in july. He's got a postseason track record. He can fill a variety of late inning roles. He's only old a little bit more than two million this season even though he will be a free agent potential landing spots again dodgers blue jays even the phillies could certainly be interested. You have michael pineda. The twins right handed starter. He's their biggest asset. Besides barrio donaldson. Who don't seem to be moving here anywhere so who could be in on pineda. Blue jays the phillies. The mariners were rumored to be interested but after adding anderson. I think it would take them step down. And then you have. Richard rodriguez relief pitcher for the pirates. No one's more coveted than relief pitching so add this guy to the list. Plus he's got two more years of team control now. His spin rates have declined since the sticky substance ban so that could make teams a little bit apprehensive and giving up as much as they would have. Potentially a month ago same lists their blue jays. Dodgers phillies The astros were on the list but since they made their moves Take them off. And then lastly here. Jonathan shoop of tigers first baseman second baseman scott. Seventeen home runs a seven. Ninety-nine he's on a good contract he's old less than two million this season. he's going to be a free agent but some landing spots potentially for him or the white sox the red sox the mariners but a ton of names. We're going to hear rumors on here over the next twenty four to forty eight hours and quite a few names that i think are ultimately going to be relocated before the end of the trade deadline at the end of this week here but that does it for today's episode.

"By the gsm. See podcasts network. i'm your host kevin mahalick. We got a fantastic show up for you guys here today but i. Hopefully you guys had a great weekend out. There had some fun. Whatever it is you were doing this weekend. I myself took things a little bit. Easy spent some time with my daughter. My parents had a good time kind of catching up recharging enjoying ourselves here in the middle of summer enjoyed time at the park outside. Doing some yard work all that. Good stuff that comes with summertime but it was a lot of fun to get out there so for you guys enjoyed yourself as well but we got a ton of things to talk about here within the baseball podcast. I mean of course we had ourselves a name change. The cleveland baseball team. I guess he he'll shall not be named the cleveland. Baseball team has rebranded and found themselves in new name that was quite controversial. According to the interim well when that controversial but mixed reviews. I guess you could say based on the feedback for the choice of the new team name. So we're gonna get into all of that type of stuff. It went down what the new name is breakdown for. You guys out there. Which i'm sure you're aware of the new name change but we'll go behind the scenes here just a little bit in talking about ultimately what's going on then we're going to get into some stuff on the field if you no hitters. Were flirted with this weekend. So we'll discuss those opportunities talk about them a little bit then in segment number two. We'll discuss. We had to trades. Take place so far coming up on the trade deadline. Of course you guys are aware of that. You've been listening to the podcast but we had to trades actually go down and then ultimately in segment three. I'll give you guys some predictions for this week. On who else. I think will move where they're going to end up in all of those particular types of conversations which are certainly a lot of fun and then finally sang number four. Getting you up to date on the standings after the weekend. Who had a good week last week where we add any major changes and of course up to date with all the stats leaders across the individual statistics here but jumping right into segment number one.

"Ahead of the july thirty first deadline martin and his representatives have discussed looking for a three or four year. Deal that pay around fifty million dollars. So the marlins were about twenty million underactive under asking price. Martin is gonna be a free agent after the season. Of course he would be the top center fielder available to eighty six this year across two hundred forty play played appearances. He's always been a productive player. Very good again for the fish and a lot of teams are interested in starling martini. Now that they're here hearing that he could potentially be on the market. I mean the list is wrong. Right you got the yankees braves phillies raise reds blue jays. Mariners brewers red sox all of those teams have received below average production at the center field position and recently a report came out that John hayman of mlb network said that the phillies yankees and astros are all interested. In the miami marlins outfielder who seems likely to be traded so startling marty certainly a name we could add to the room sphere out here of guys potentially being on the move and martin the phillies makes a ton of sense just as a phillies fan. Perfect fit for this ballclub but the yankees looking to make a push. The astros could use a bat. So it's certainly going to be a bit of an arms race when it comes to potentially add in star lamar tek another report out. There says that the twins have not yet indicated to other teams that they are willing to trade players under contract beyond twenty twenty one. Espn buster olney. Basically said the only guys up for up forbid right now or nelson cruz. Michael pineda and handsome robe lace now. They there were rumors. Again that byron buxton could have been on the market but as of this report. They're basically saying hey. The twins aren't ready to go full rebuild mode yet. They're kinda writing this off as a fluke year and they think they're going to be better than this next season. So jose barea styler duffy. Kenta eight up byron buxton or under team control. People have talked about them being moved. But it looks like that's not going to be the focus here over the next two weeks as of right now in minnesota of course things can change if you get blown away by a trade offer now just looking to move on. From pending free agents there for the twins and then lastly the athletics focusing on bullpen help. The athletic sat in the second wildcard spot as of now three and a half games behind the astros but they're looking to add to the bullpen. Upgrades i it's it's. It's been tough out there to say the least for the naef athletics trevor. Rosenthal started the air on the injured list with shoulder problems. Recently had season ending hip surgery signed him to a one year. Eleven million dollar deal and he won't pitch this year. Jake diekmann lou trevino. I've done late inning duty. But it's been a revolving door out there for the as so the as likely to have interest in ian kennedy jolie. Rodriguez richard rodriguez potentially craig kimbrel. But if you're in as fan out there look for them to add a bullpen piece here over the coming days and weeks as we lead up to the deadline but that'll do it for segment number one of the mc baseball podcast brought to you by the gsm podcast network. I'm your host kevin. Mahalick will step aside here now for word from one of our spots in our sister show but when we come back we're gonna talk minor leagues. I'm gonna talk farm systems we did.

"Gsm. see podcast network. I'm hosts kevin mahalick appreciate you guys tuning in so some history was made out there on the diamonds in the past couple of days. More than shohei ohtani breaking the record for most home runs in the season by japanese-born player. We had chad green of the new york yankees complete in immaculate inning. This past week. And what's an immaculate inning. Well it's three strike outs in the inning on just nine pitches. So green became the third immaculate inning. So far during the twenty twenty one season honestly. This has happened a bit more than i thought it would. Over the course of major league baseball. I mean there's been a ton of them but recently i wanted to discuss with you guys. You know the more recent ones that have taken place. Chad green was the second one for the yankees. So far this season this one happened on july. Fourth against the mets chad. Green against michael. Conforto jeff mcneil and jonathan vr. Who went down with three strikeouts on nine pitches. Michael king was able to complete this for the yankees back on june fourth against the red sox. I remember talking to you guys vow. This was the first one ever in the yankees. Red sox rivalry that took place. You had hunter renfro. Marlin gonzales and christian vasquez go down in that particular inning but we also had one by kyle finnegan of the nationals. On may fifth twenty twenty one against the atlanta braves austin riley. Dance be swanson. And william contraire s where the victims and that particular inning now in immaculate inning only happened to once in the twenty twenty season now this season was only sixty games along so obviously a lot less of an opportunity but three so far this year and about eighty two games as a lot more than one in just sixty but zac. Police acted it on september. Eighteenth twenty twenty against the tigers jorges. Hey bonifazio nico good german austin roe. Mine went down for the tigers in twenty nineteen. This happened quite often. Actually there were ton back. In twenty nineteen the most recent one was will harris of the astros in september against the angels. You had chris martin of the braves in september against the phillies cesar hernandez jay. Bruce logan morrison went down in that particular inning kevin gaza and completed one when he was with the cincinnati reds the ninth inning against the cardinals. Yaro muna's dexter fowler. And tommy edmund. You had stephen strasburg in twenty nineteen against the marlins. Chris sale for the red sox in june of twenty nineteen against the royals. You also had chris sale do it in may eighth of twenty nineteen so chris sale did it twice back during the twenty nineteen season. This time it was against the orioles thomas Known for the blue jays in april of twenty nineteen against the race. And then josh. Hater of the brewers did it in twenty nineteen of the cardinals so very common back in twenty nineteen. It only happened four times in twenty eighteen zach. Ross cup for the dodgers germain marquee for the rockies max scherzer for the nationals kevin guzman with the orioles at this particular time also did it. So he's done in multiple times in his career so the immaculate inning happens more often than you would think dating all the way back to eighteen eighty nine. It happened once in eighty nine once in nineteen hundred two once in nineteen fourteen once in nineteen twenty one twenty three twenty four twice in twenty eight not again until three fifty six fifty nine sixty two so it certainly becoming more common in today's game than it was back in the day but there's a list of them out there online if you wanna see ultimately who has them for your squad and checking out but chad green. The most recent one with three strikeouts nine pitches having himselves in immaculate inning to make history for the yankees just jumping around news notes for major league baseball here mets ace jacob degrom says he will skip the all star game. He said quote. I've thought about it and obviously being named to an all star team is a great honor. But i'm just going to take that time and enjoy with my family. Whether i pitched sunday or not and get healthy for the second half. It was kind of up in the air. Whether or not i go and then thinking about it. I think it's best for me and this team for me to not go and throw and rest for the second half and quote to gram of course leads the war here for twenty twenty one with a one point zero eight. Era leads the majors with one hundred. Forty six strikeouts despite only throw in ninety two innings. So again he's been very good for the mets he's dealt with some injuries and he's going to sit it out and just take time to get healthy. So who's going to replace degrom for the all star game. I talked to you guys. About some snubs earlier you got peralta potentially sherzer potentially a couple of other guys bueller and walker could potentially start so ultimately i think max scherzer is going to get the nod over freddie peralta and end up making his eighth consecutive all star appearance here during the twenty twenty one season. But now i wanted to talk to you guys about some rookie. Who have been hot here over the past couple of weeks. Some names you guys may not have heard of or heard about just quite yet but who are starting to make a name for themselves and i is alex minoa a right handed pitcher for the blue jays. He's there number five ranked overall prospect number ninety on major league. Baseball's top one hundred. He's only made two starts so far but he's been absolutely dominant. He hasn't allowed in earned. Run in either of those outings over the course of thirteen innings. He's also struck out sixteen and also walked three so again he struck out ten tampa bay rays in a club record seven in a row at one point. He didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning. And that particular outing. He was eleventh overall. Pick in twenty nineteen and man. He has been so good through these first two starts and his curve ball is one of the filthiest pitches in all of baseball already. If you guys haven't seen pitching in. John twitter just type in his name. And you're going to see some filthy swing and misses against his breaking ball and i think he's a name. We're going to be here in for quite some time as he's only scratching the surface of his potential there in toronto. Y'all hoes. Oh have eric hoss catcher outfielder for the tigers now again they're rebuilding so there's going to be a lot opportunities in this guy is a little bit atypical. Righties at twenty eight year old rookie. He hit three twenty three over the past. Nine games for the tigers with four home runs. He had two of them last saturday and a six. Rbi performance against the white sox and this leads all rookies over the past. Two weeks is o. P. s. has gone from eight..

"His career already and he'd be on pace to break his career high that he set back in twenty eighteen. He's the only guy in the major leagues with more than twenty this season. He doesn't strike out. He's only strike out twelve point seven percent of the time. Ten percentage points lower than the league average. he's walking seven percent of the time on base percentage of three thirty seven. Eight home runs in eighty three games this year which certainly makes him one of the best offensive weapons so far for kansas city. This year you'll on mon kedah. Third baseman for the white sox. I mean yes. Numbers are particularly flashy. But it's two point. Seven war is the highest among qualified position players to miss the all star game this year and it's higher than a considerable number of starters. I mean man. He's trimmed his career his strikeout rate to a career low at twenty five point eight percent. He's got his highest average jetta to eighty career-best four zero three on base percentage. And i mean gosh for the white sox. He's one of their best offensive players. So it's certainly interesting to see him being kept off this list. You have freddie peralta. Starting pitcher the brewers. I mean yes the national league. This year is ridiculously deep with pitching. So it certainly made sense. One of the top starters was gonna be left out from the rotation and the brewers already have two guys from their rotation being represented in the all star game but peralta is one of the best even though he's milwaukee's number three his two point. Two three era is seventh lowest in the national league among qualified starters. His hundred and twenty nine strikeouts his fourth most and so far only jacob degrom is holding opposing hitters to a lower batting average. Peralta is at one thirty two so far this season he's got walk rate of only eleven point five percent his home run rate nine point seven percent so again i mean you go with the top two guys from milwaukee one one guy certainly going to be left out but peralta any other year would absolutely be representing his team in the all star game. Y'all have max scherzer. Another starting pitcher from the national league. He's he spent a seven straight all star appearances. This breaks in impressive streak dating back to twenty thirteen and in twenty twenty one. He's been very good again. I mean he's averaging more than twelve strikeouts per nine innings. He's brought his walk rate down to two walks per nine innings. That's the third lowest of his thirteen year career. More impressively ziara is at two point one zero which a guy with three cy. Young awards is certainly very impressive. That would be his lowest mark ever for his career. He's gonna be thirty eight here soon and for a guy having the lowest dra of his career at the age of thirty eight again. That's somebody who should be on the all star team but just the depth in the national league. Pitching side of things made it extremely difficult for these guys to get on the squad. And then. Lastly i have justin turner of the dodgers. I mean again. The dodgers thir- absolutely loaded right. They got a bunch of guys who can make strong case clayton. Kershaw was left off the team. Kenley jansen was left off the team this year but turner who's only got one all star appearance in his career just seems like a guy. Who's this good. Should have more all star appearances than that. I mean again. Among qualified players only mon- kedah's as a higher war among position players mccain was at two point seven turner's at two point six. He's been a force offensively hitting two ninety five thirteen home runs. He only has fifty seven. Strikeouts to thirty nine walks. He's got a forty four point. Two hard hit rates which is the best of his career is average. Exit velocity is ninety one miles an hour so he certainly had an all star first half for the dodgers but the depth in the national league again. Leave some guys out when it comes to the mid summer classic. So let me know who you guys think should have made the all star team that maybe i left off this list. Who is the biggest snub that you guys ad that i leave anybody out but wrapping up all our all star segment here and segment number two talking about the homerun derby we now know who the final eight contestants are we have. We know all eight of them here when it comes to the derby we of course new shohei ohtani. We talked about him in great detail and segment number one. You also have pita lonzo who was listed we talked about trae manzini matt olsen of the oakland. Athletics was the last ones we know. But the final four. we're also recently released. We have trevor story of the colorado rockies. Sin how much longer are we going to say of the colorado rockies. He's one of the biggest rumored participants in the trade deadline coming up and we'll discuss that in a little more detail here in our fourth and final segment but the final three guys one soto of the washington nationals super excited to see one sodo in the homerun derby. I mean that guy's natural power is absolutely going to be on display when it comes to being in denver and being above sea level and just watching the ball fly. You also have. Salvador perez of the kansas city royals peres just continues to make all star team after all star team. And he's got some pop offensively so it's certainly going to be fun to watch. And then the last participation guy we got here is joey gallo. He announced he's got twenty. Twenty one home run. So far this season and it will be the eighth and final contestant so from the left side at the plate shohei ohtani matt olsen. One sotto joey gallo. I mean if you're getting tickets to this event you may want to get some in the third deck out there in right field and if you're in left field pita lonzo trevor. Sewri salvador perez trae manzini. It's an even split. Lefty righty here. So it's certainly going to be a ton of fun to watch. And i mean i don't know the bracket yet that ultimately who's going up against two but it's tough to bet again shohei otani and juan soto even with pita lonzo being a previous champion of the event. So let me know in the comments. So you guys think's going to win the events ultimately i just. I'm i'm excited about these guys. I think this is going to be a fun. One to watch. And there's gonna be a ton of home runs being hit in this derby so you're gonna wanna tune in and watch that at the beginning of next week but that'll do it here for segment number.

Here on sunday nights. We found out the starters a few days ago. And that's where we'll start out this segment looking at the catching position in the american league. Your starter is salvador perez. It'll be his sixth. All star game starts and he continues to get better. I mean gosh. This guy is played nearly a thousand games behind the plate and he's hitting better than he ever has throughout the rest of his career so certainly fitting that he starts in the american league behind the dish on the national league. We have buster posey for his fifth. All star game start. He opted not to play in the twenty twenty season but certainly looks like the time you put in a way off. The field is certainly paying. Its dividends right. He sitting three thirty this year with twelve home runs which is many home runs as he had in twenty eighteen and twenty nine thousand nine combined. So buster posey's certainly been very good at first base. You have vlad guerrero junior. Making his first all star game start. This is right where people expected him to be. He was the youngest player. Ever to lead major league. Baseball and all star voting. He's tied for second in baseball with twenty. Six home runs very deserving of getting the start and the national league have freddy freeman making his third starts in the all star. Game the rany. Nfl mvp as pick things up right. He started slow this year but now he's up to seventeen home runs and he's been very good and will now start for the national league at first base at second base. Marcus simeon for the blue jays. Making his first all star game start. He hit a leadoff home. Run over the past couple of days. He's got twenty. Home runs red hot after winning as american league player of the month award so very deserving there for the blue jays to have the right side of the infield starting the all star game and adam frazier is making his first start for the national league again. We talked about him Potentially being up for trade at the deadline will get into that more here and segment number. Three but frazier hidden three twenty seven. This year has been very good for the pittsburgh pirates at third base raphael. Dever's for the red sox making his first all star game start. Dever says twenty home runs this year and leads the major leagues in. Rbi's so he has certainly fitting there for the american league and then nolan era nado for the national league makes his fourth all star game. Start aaron nado. He's returned to his. Rbi machine form. He's got fifty two rbi's and he was able to outlast kris bryant to become the starter there at third for the national league. Zander bogart starts at shortstop. His second all star game. Start there for the red sox so an all blue jays right side of the infield and all red sox left side of the infield kinda fascinating that the american league east will have all four all star starting spots in the infield and then we have fernando tat tease junior his first start there in the national league. Of course one of the most electric is in all of baseball. Certainly fitting that. He'll get that starting. Not there in the all star game for the outfield. You have mike trout his seventh all-star game starts of course he will be on the injured list so he will be replaced but he was recognized by the fans to get his seven. Start there in the american league. You have aaron judge. Making his third all star game start. Judge has eighteen home runs and again he is very good. So the yankees bene- a disappointment but judge has been good this year and then task oh hernandez for the blue jays. Making his first all star game starts. He's probably the most surprising. American league starter. He barely beat out some of the other guys on the list but he sitting three. Oh to eleven home runs forty seven. Rbi so very deserving to be making the mid summer classic. The national league starting outfield consists of ronald mukunu. Junior his second all star game start. He has just been a model of consistency. He's on pace Well on his way to a thirty thirty year perhaps even a forty forty campaign so he's been very good there for atlanta. You have nick. Castellanos in jesse winkler winker making their first. All star game starts for the reds to round out the outfield. They're so castellanos one of the game's best hitters. He's got a three forty six average which leads major league baseball. He's also got the most hits with one hundred and two most doubles with twenty seven and his battery made out there winker..

Let's get you guys up to date on what happened on the field over past week or so across major league baseball starting out with some homerun derby news. We already know shohei. Otani will be taking place in the home run derby but we did get some other updates on some additional contestants. It was reported that defending champion. Pete alonzo we'll be taking place in the derby. He mentioned that he had so much fun. Last time being a winner of the derby back in two thousand nineteen last time it was held that why not do it again and again he was my guy for the mets. I wanna see take place. He crushes baseball. So he's going to be a ton of fun to watch out there in colorado from the right side taking on the left handed hitting otani. That's going to be a ton of fun to watch. We also had some news on. Who will not be participating. Vlad guerrero junior. Who was runner-up to pete lonzo and his right up there this year for the home run lead overall in baseball. He is not going to be taking participation. he is focusing on maintaining health. Kind of rejuvenating re-energizing himself during the course of the all star break. But we did hear that trae man manzini will be taken place and this is just a fantastic story for trae mancini. Of course he missed the entire twenty twenty season after being diagnosed with stage. Three colon cancer. He returned this year after undergoing surgery to treat the cancer chemotherapy and ultimately he is worthy of consideration. He is at the top of the list. Among baseball's best in maximum exit velocity so. He has hit the ball hard so far this year. He's followed up a breakout. Twenty nineteen season to sixty with fourteen home runs fifty two. Rbi's so we know three out of the guys. Trae mancini pete alonso. Shohei otani but another gentleman said he's not going to participate. Is fernando tatis junior and this is a shame of course because he is one of the best young talents across all of major league baseball but again wants to take time to focus on himself during this break but he he had a little homerun derby of his own during that actual major league action. This past week. He hit his first three home. Run game in a match up against the diamondbacks at petco park. He went downtown three different times and it only took him four innings to complete this feat. I mean he went yard in the first inning. The second and the fourth inning during what ultimately wasn't eleven to five victory over the diamondbacks. He mentioned since he was a kid. This one was on his bucket. Bucket list gladly. He did that here today and he is just electric right. I mean the crowd out there and san diego. It was unbelievable to watch. He ended up going four for five on the night and three home runs in the match up. So it's unfortunate. We're not gonna see him in the derby but he had himself a little bit of a derby against the diamondbacks petco park going downtown. Three times and ultimately one game and the padres. They've stayed hot here as the squat. In general over the past couple of days They swept the dodgers for the first time since two thousand and thirteen now of course over the past ten years or so. The padres f. one games. They've won series against the dodgers but had not completed a three-game sweep over the dodgers and almost nine years and manny. Machado was a big reason. Why with one out. Two men aboard in the top of the ninth inning. Our pool said a missile right at machado but he was able to turn the double play for a game ending double play. You also hit a first inning home. Run in monday series opener last week which set the tone. He hit another first inning blast on wednesday which is his fifth home. Run against the dodgers in two hours. Fifth home run against trevor bauer and twenty five career at bats so he owns trevor bauer. He had himself a heck of a series. And the dodgers man. It was a ton of fun to watch right. Petco park was absolutely rocking outside of the world series. That's the most energy i've ever played in since joe must grove won a championship back with houston and twenty seventeen. Anytime these dodgers fans get going are fan. Silence them and drown them out so it was special to have a full crowd again. In one hundred percent capacity said must grow up petco park and again just fun to watch those types of matchups with of course two of the best teams across all of major league baseball going at it out there on the west coast. One else happened out there on the diamond. Well a knuckleball pitcher for the baltimore orioles gets his first shot at the big leagues at thirty three years. Old janice finally got his first big league moment. He's the third oldest rookie in orioles history and he tossed the final three and a third innings in the series finale against the astros ultimately it was a thirteen. Nothing loss for the oriels at camden yards but was genesis first trip to the big lakes. He was drafted in the forty fourth round in two thousand ten so it took eleven years for janice to make it to the show. He spent time with the raise. The mets he also played an independent league see played overseas before signing with the orioles. Free agency and twenty twenty. Obviously it's been an absolute grind for janice to get to the show here but finally had his opportunity and he took advantage of it. He tossed a scoreless fifth inning. Struck out yard and alvarez ultimately on that nasty knuckleball if you guys haven't seen the highlight of that clear man. It is crazy to watch but he throws a harder knuckleball right. He's kind of around eighty miles an hour. Which is really unheard of. Because i believe the rpm's on knuckleball right everybody's talking about two thousand plus when it comes to fast bubble. I think his was at like one hundred and forty like it was literally in the one hundred's ultimately on rotations getting to home plate. Knuckleballer is typically. Aren't giving a great shot to make it to the major leagues said. They're kind of thought of as an afterthought almost a joke within baseball circles. But we've seen people have success. Of course he know. Tim wakefield one of the most famous knuckleballer center in recent memory. You also have our dickie. Who had success. I believe won a cy young award as a knuckleballer so mickey janice gets his first shot in the show at age thirty three eleven years after being drafted and you have to give a guy like that a shoutout who's continued to grind and.
