"Follow me on twitter. At patrick underscored kenny. Excuse me At underscore patrick kenny. All one word. And i think we have a pretty good show for you guys today If i do say so myself so first off we're gonna be talking about. Obviously some are our regular news updates so we have Obviously the mets didn't sign kumar rocker before the deadline. And we'll talk a little bit more about that but after a right after we finish talking about that the rest of this first segment is going to be about the rookies of the year. We're going to kind of see like who we think is probably going to win that award. If they continue on the path of they're on and then who might just fall short and also who is to turn it around if if they wanna win that after that we're gonna be talking about some status updates and if we have a little bit more time we'll we'll go through a few standings updates as well and then after that we're going to be talking about interest zucchini. And then if we have time right at the end will react to the mlb power rankings and see where your favorite team might end up but we might end up saving that one until the next episode depending on how long we take with ichiro so with that being said let's get started talking about kuma rocker so the new york meant didn't sign the right hander. At who was the tenth overall pick in the amateur draft before last sunday's five. pm eastern signing deadline. This is clearly not the alco made. Hope for in wish kumar. Nothing but success. Moving forward acting max. General manager zach zach scott said in a statement quote. We are excited about the players and we have signed look forward to watching them develop in contribute to the organization in the years to come rocker. Whose twenty one. Whose dominance at vanderbilt made him the most well known college player. Perhaps in a decade an agreeable. I had a me had an agreement in place to sign for six million after he slipped down the boards earlier this month but the deal fell apart following his physical examination as the nets expressed concern over the health of rockers. Armed sources said rockers. Agent scott boras said in a statement that his client is healthy quote. Kumar rocker is healthy. According to independent medical review by multiple prominent baseball orthopedic surgeons immediately upon conclusion of his collegiate season. He an mri on both shoulders and elbow. When compared with his joining eighteen and alrigh- medical experts found no significant change. Kamar requires no medical attention and will continue to pitch in the regular course as he prepares to begin his professional career. Said boris so the mets then receive the eleventh big in the twenty twenty two draft as compensation for not signing kumar rocker. Unfortunately that's pretty bad. Typically a team has to offer a flare forty percent of his slotted bonus. The tent pick slot is four. Is excuse me the tenth. Big is worth four point. Seven four million dollars to recap a compensation pig for an unsigned player. Because rocker was selected for the league's pre-draft alright program and did not participate however the rules allow the mets to forego offer and still receive the pick players expected to be drafted high often skipped program which allows every all thirty teams to have access to that player's medical information by not signing rock by not signing rocker. The mets find themselves with eight hundred and seventy eight thousand eight hundred dollars. Unspent from their nine point zero two million dollar pool. Most teams expect the pulled up by five percent allowed without being penalized which pushed the mets unspent. Money to more than one point three million dollars had they signed other players under their slot value with the rest reserved for rocker. A rockers expected six million dollar bonus. Rocker was the only player drafted by the mets this year to not be signed but after this. Let's talk about the rookie of the year. The has the there couple really. Good guys You have guys like tyler stevenson for the red. You have guys lake Trevor rogers and gestures and home for the marlins you have ryan weather's for the padres out in the nfl out in the al. And you have guys like german mercedes. Casey mayes manual claws out key luis garcia. All these garcia. You have a lot of guys is that we can talk about especially like there. There are just so many players right now and they and the lawyer they young. This is a very very fun year to have watched. All of these players. This is this is a year baseball. I'm not allowed to you. So let's just start out in the nfl. So guy is in a rut and he definitely could turn it around and if he were to turn around he probably would end up a winning the it would take. It would take a long shot for this guy to win. The nl mvp nl rookie of the year award. And that's jazz choosing home junior. So she's home. Strikeout issues really have resurfaced in a major way to cool the enthusiasm over his really hot start. He's only he's only batting two twenty two with getting on base at a clip of two eighty five. And then he's only slugging at three eighty one percent with a thirty one percent strikeout rate in his last thirty one games and he's fallen to ninth among all rookies with a seven sixty seven opie s. Right now ekiden finitely. Turn that around. That's not something that we we really expect. I mean just home is gonna strike out a lot. That i would expect him to start putting the ball more employees especially with a manager. Like don mattingly who obviously is a very was a very very good contact hitter in his day so i think that maybe i think that with mattingly there and having having children home with the marlins. I think that it's actually probably a really fit. Forges and homeless. Stop getting strikeouts. A couple of guys. That just missed the cut. Kind of our guys like dylan. Carlson of the cardinals and pavin smith of the diamondbacks now buffalo's outfielders have slowed down considerably but remain among the nfl's best rookies with smith. Leading all rookies with seventy seven hits and carlson. Right behind him with seventy six but both of fallen out of this op. Three an among rookies in opie s but aren't far behind one hot streak away from climbing right back into the top tier of the rookie of the year. Contenders some guys. That are on the rise. Our guys like tyler. Stevenson and ryan weather's tyler stevenson. Obviously the catcher of the reds and ryan weather's a left-handed pitcher for the padres was stevenson. And weather's have less playing time than most of the top contenders but with both of these rookies excelled at their approach accelerate their opportunities seasons in as a seven ninety eight opie s in his the highest among all qualified rookies albeit in fifty to one hundred less or fewer at bats than the other top contenders whereas weather owns a to sixty three. Era albeit in thirty viewer plus innings than some of the other..

"If they were unable to sign any of the others they could shift more money to this young man xavier kasereka and signed him instead but the cardinals were able to get all their guys on board Including the first. Pick the right hander. Michael mcgreevy the second. Pick a high schooler. Joshua by as an outfielder and abayas has has already begun to play in the florida complex league. That's the rookie level league. Jupiter almost all the other players Including the competitive balance number. Seventy pick overall ryan holgate and outfielder from arizona. All those players the majority of them have suited up with class a palm beach. So they're playing at a pretty high level for first year players and as a result of this and then a number. I think it's about eight or nine of the players including mcgreevy haven't yet been activated because the cardinals have all these young men in jupiter. They're assessing you know. How many innings eight. Through how many plate appearances how many innings they played in the field this spring for their high school or college teams and they're sort of bringing them into action slowly and another byproduct of that is given their only so many seats on the roster's A number of other players who had been in the system and if for three four years have been given their release as these new players. Come in so there's been a wholesale change at at palm beach with. I think it's a dozen new players to have joined that roster in the last week. And like i said given you know they've lost fourteen in a row. Getting some fresh blood in isn't a bad thing in terms of comparing that to other teams brian. And and getting their draft pick signed are the cardinals at the forefront of this or is this kind of commonplace now with the lack of picks in the draft that most teams get all their guys in or at least the majority of a man. Yeah most of them do another some high profile. Mrs for example. The mets i. I picked kumar rocker from vanderbilt. Sixth overall pick a guy that any organization would love to have for whatever reason the mets got cross ways with rockers representatives regarding money and you know they they were unable to come to an agreement and while the mets get another pick next year to compensate you lose an important year of development with a with a good young player so the cardinals have always done a good job in discussing with the players. Their families their representatives. You know what it's gonna take money wise about to get them to sign because teens don't wanna waste good picks they wanna make sure that once they make the commitment to a young man. They're going to get his name on a contract and the cardinals traditionally have done a very good job of getting their players. Sign about matthew liberty for and nolan gorman last night gorman a home run liberty for when i think four and a third a lot of folks and i can understand why they are curious whether or not these guys would get a call up this season. My personal feeling is that that will not happen. Especially with the minor league season being pushed back and it coincides with the major league season What's your gut on those two in where they're at right..

"Okay then don't pick him right. Yeah right at that point. that's on you. You picked a guy who wouldn't submit medicals. You took the risk. But i just don't think there can be any standard where a guy you can say. I'm offering knew nothing. And if you don't take it sorry you can't do anything this just think. That's a terrible realistic. So and i don't. I whatever happened. Well no because as ryan said teams wouldn't do that because you're just wasting your pig so i understand like major league. Baseball probably never thought this would happen. They never thought a team would pick guy than not signing stuck with the mets. Not making any stuck with nothing. The mets have lost their rights to him and he can't go signing and saying that that's the bad i can't go you can't go. They're holding hostage so basically he can enter the draft again next year but like until then he can't do could go back to college but that shouldn't matter like he doesn't have to go back to college right although i think you should. Because he just could not believe. When i read that that that was a rule now there are people who say well matt they have to retain their rights or else teams players would just say i'm not signed with the orioles. I'm signing with the yankees. That's why the rules should be that you if you're kumar rocker and there's a slotted amount of money and you don't take it then that's on you. Yeah so but they didn't offer me anything match now. My least favorite team major league baseball you think they would have signed him and paid for the medical procedures whatever needed to get his arm fixed and then bring him up you slowly after that. Keep him either way. Just doesn't seem fair richard. What's up rich. Hey a couple..

"Just a matter of keep sticking to our principles. Good bad speech. Well blake defense and turn the page. That's the most important thing. Don't get caught up on all the high or all the talk. whatever. I always said that In this city it gets loud. You know it gets loud outside our walls and my job as a manager is to keep the noise outside the clubhouse and stay the course and so far. We've been doing that job. You'll try to even the series with the race tonight. You got two things really working to your favorite. Let's start with this on the mound. That's nathan of oldie. What what a great arm to have for you tonight. In this in this situation one and We got him in eighteen and everybody knows the story right and he's getting better he's healthy. He's made some adjustments Nutrition wise workout wise. And he's been able to pose every five days which is very important. You know the stuff you know. Good fastball good. break split Throwing a lot of strikes in this team. That is very aggressive. We've been facing them. Since strength training we play them a lot in spring training and now during the season. Obviously we're gonna play them. A lot is a good baseball team. They're defending american league. Champions can also we know that they're good but a blend that we have made and hopefully can go deep into the game. Let's second thing working for you tonight. To is rough hield diverse and alex. He's so much fun to watch. Every time i've seen him at the plate this year. his lips are moving the whole time. Can you share with me. Whatever that conversation is that he's having with his bat himself for whatever it is he working in his whatever. It is what i mean. This is started early in the season but the last few weeks i think people have noticed and is actually a conversation. I never asked him what he said. Sometimes it's an english sometimes in spanish sometimes its bangladesh too so I just leave it at that. He's been amazing for us One thing that people don't realize or forget about that he's only twenty four and we talk about the teas. We talk about laddy. We talk about soda all those young players. And because rafi got to. The billy bigwigs in seventeen because he has a world series ring and he led the big lixin extra-base hits in nineteen. They think twenty seven. No no no. He's twenty four and still learning how to play the game. He says that his Looking more like you did. Two seasons ago is because you're back in the dugout. What's your reaction to that. Hopefully when he signs that big contract whatever he gives me five percent of it if he feels our. I'm happy that he says that you know. There's a kid that. I really appreciate not only on the field but off the feel he's been amazing is one of those that he such a good person. Which is the most important thing. We connect the rightaway traveling to the michigan. He will travel toward. Rico we'll make sure we stay in touch in the off season somebody that is very important not only for our president but also for the future in a. He's become a superstar I'm glad he says that. I feel the same way about him. Bleacher tweets all ready. Timmy bleacher tweets for a mundy. We have A loaded slate of tweets. Here let's go to andrew desalvo desalvo. Shen andrew writes in. What is kumar rocker likely to do. Now that the mets didn't sign him can the mets trade. his rights in someone else can sign him if no. Why wouldn't that be allowed. Seems to punish the player if a frugal overly cautious team drafts and a lot of people. Want answers about this kumar rocker situation. What do you think buster. What he'd think jim. Excuse me. well this is a very thorny situation and it's not an equitable situation kumar. Rocker is being punished here. And he can. No you cannot trade his rights. He has reentered the drafts next year. Which certainly could happen. But he's going to have to probably go play independent ball somewhere all and that. That just doesn't seem right for him to be able to re enter the draft. He thinks they can't sign him. They should be allowed trade his rights to someone who does want to sign him and it's simply not fair to the clare buster ni- talked about this quite a bit smarter next. We have john you'll at j. bill. Nineteen john writes in. If nick magical is healthy plane as well as he was before. The injury is craig kimbrel. Still on the white sox That's a really good question. Nick miracles a good little player as we know he puts the ball in play. He puts the bad on the ball last year. Thirty five hits thirty two singles. He's the guy who really tried to get a hit not hit a home run you went. I believe it was one hundred and six. Seventy six pitches this year without a swing and miss. That's who he is and yes if he hadn't gotten heard it would still be the everyday second baseman for the white sox. Craig kimbrel likely would not be on the white sox but they're going to start next year the cubs with madrigal at second nico ordered shortstop. And you could do a whole lot worse than those two guys who have tremendous baseball. Iq's in the middle infield and both of them are intent on. Put the ball in play so when the cubs start over next year. It's going to be an interesting look in the middle infield. Then i kinda like it with those two guys next up. We have my i don irvine at don irvine don rights and after gutting the nationals. How much time does mike. Rizzo have to put.

"To know exactly what what are the next five years going to look like. And and I think that the, you know, the easy assumption is like, always going to hang on to all of them. And, and yes, of course, like, that's the whole point of all these guys, but I don't think that, I don't think it's that cut and dry for him. I do think that he, there is a sense of, you know, players are assets and so, so I and, and if they are, or if by the time, he's almost ready. If Mayors in Triple-A and whatever three years, and they're right on the verge and they've got some guy out there that they can get. I mean, who knows if at that point time is going to be in a point where he goes. All right. Nope, now this is when I go right, this is what I'm going to go for it and we make that move. I just think he talks a lot about wave after wave after wave after wave. So as much as you know, that this kids eighteen years old and what four years away, maybe best case scenario from the big leagues, but he likes that, I mean he took Nick York last year Theory, he's got a he's got his middle in Southfield for 20-25 sitting the lower levels of the system and he I think he likes that wave aspect of it that they those guys might hit at just the right time when he needs a couple of cheap high end position players. But they might not they might they might come at a time when he needs a trade ship and and and I just think we don't know yet what a we don't know exactly what this long-term vision of Heinz is. So I think it makes sense, though, we're seeing is we're seeing though the way he's arranging the chessboard, right? He's he is giving himself their pieces here. There are pieces here, there. Other pieces here and he's got it setup, kind of you can see him you know that the benintendi trade he got those the three players would be named later..

"Need your take. Oh yeah, no, it's certainly not a need-based thing. I mean, they they I think it's just looking at this time. At this, he may be the most talented kid in the draft and there's some risk with every high school kid. They felt like they'd spend a lot of time with him. They sort of they they really noticed him when he was a sophomore. So they've been kind of on him for three years but yeah, for sure, if they, if they wanted to hit for need here it would have been. I think rocker would have made some sense. Just get a good college arm, but you also don't need to make take advantage of draft in this High. When else are they going to pick number 4 in the draft. And this is, and, and Marcelo, mayor is a tot, he is a number 4 in the draft Talent, right? I mean, now there's a Chris with all these guys. He is a he's the guy. This guy could be really Elite and and I just think that's a hard thing to pass up with it's in there. Yeah. And I don't have a problem with it as much, but it's just going to raise the eyebrows of some who say that, you know, the any team that wants to compete for a World Series is going to need young controllable. Upper echelon job. Pitching talent and that's why to me especially given time blooms reputation of developing Elite young pitching. He's very familiar with Vanderbilt. Obviously in the talent that He had down in Tampa Bay, not taking rocker at this point, just raised my eyebrows a little bit. That's yeah. Sure. And and and it just seemed to that the industry kind of began to Value him a little bit differently long as we I mean he was the standout guy and then kind of had an uneven season and that that does seem to change, you know, the way it does seem to have changed their calculation, right? It wasn't, it obviously was not only he fell to what.

"And that online, your online Sportsbook experts. All right, back with Chad Jennings covering the Red Sox for the athletic Tanner Houck. What is his deal? When can we see him pitching for the Red Sox? Yeah, I think as early as Thursday I mean it could be I think right after the break they can bring him up to play one role or another but it's dead. Now, he's pitched. I think he's pitched. Okay, down there his last start, wasn't that good and AAA, but he obviously, was I think they saw him as an important part of this team, whether he made the team or not. I mean you know earlier on it during spring training somebody brought up that the the Rays years ago when Chris Archer had this he he came up late in the year pitched really well and then to make the opening day roster. But he made like 20 starts for that team on a team, where they're five man, rotation stayed relatively healthy and he's still got twenty starts. I think that was probably a plan for Tanner was something like that. He wasn't going to make the team, but he was going to be up enough to make a difference and then he wound up getting hurt. So I I think we're going to see him pitch quite a bit, because I think they know they've got a, they've got some work load issues here. They've got to make sure you have don't kind of fall apart. So, you know, whether that's him coming up, two spots Starkweather? That's him. Coming up to be kind of a, a three-inning guy out of the bullpen. I think there's a role for for Tanner out going to walk half, and we may see a play out sooner than later. So I've had John saydak. Talented TV play-by-play announcer for the Cincinnati. Reds for Valley Sports Ohio last week, and he came on last week, and he has made the point time and time again. What's going to be? Fascinating to him watching how managers manage their pitching rotations and innings in the second half. Season coming off the 60 game covet season of twenty twenty and to me what you just said, pretty much speaks to that, right? Oh yeah. I mean, look. I mean, these guys have the, the Red Sox top, five, starters have made every start since mid-april right. That is, that's remarkable..

"Maybe I mean it's it. When you trade Mookie Betts you're going to get this reputation quickly but I think that he I don't know that he's as As anti build and try to win right now as it seems, I think he's probably willing to do that and he has enough as there's enough depth in the farm system. Now and he's kind of facing probably a 40-man crunch, this offseason probably needs to make some sort of move and you know, you know, give up some pieces and and do try to try to sort of fortify things here. But yeah, I'm with you I just don't see him right now, thinking about this is the time I think that there may come a time when he's ready to do that. There may come a time when he feels like okay. We're you know he like he even talked about the vet straight from the my talked him in spring training, he talked about that. Dodgers were able to do the trade for vets because they've done these other things and then they can make that sort of all in trade. And so I do wonder if he's going to build to the point where he'll feel like he can make that kind of move interesting. And yeah, because I'm and that's and I think that's clearly who he's modeling this after he's trying to be the Dodgers. And so there may come a time. But I think that right now he's he he has a job. Vision for the way he wants this to work. And, and really the first half of this season has been a little bit of proof-of-concept, right? That he can, he can have a long-term vision and still keep a contending viable. Good team on the field while still maintaining his priority of something more sustainable. Speaking with Chad Jennings doing an outstanding job, covering the Red Sox for the athletic, be sure to check him out of there and on his Twitter page, Chad Jennings 22. I want to come back to that point about building the organization to a level where the Dodgers are. Now, I want to come back to that later when we took the MLB draft. That's a little bit of a teaser, as we say, in the business and in the podcasting streaming business. But for now, I want to go take a look at what you're working on right now. Chad for the recap of the first half. Some things that have surprised you one way or another and what are some of the things that stick out the most in that feature that you are working on for the dog? Sonic. Yeah. Just you know kind of trying to think about why, why are they better than we thought? You know, I mean I mean and I think when it starts I think just with their star players have played like stars. I mean that that is a big JD Martinez coming back to himself sander, Devers even you know Verdugo hasn't been as consistent. But just those are particularly those three guys in the middle. I mean that's just a difference, right? And then when you add to that, that this felt like a team. As we've talked about, they they don't have an ace that came into the season without a closer, but they do have an All-Star starting pitcher off and Barnes has been. So they even though that felt like something they didn't have, right, that they didn't have really high-end pitching, either in the rotation or in the bulletin, but they've gotten that. I mean, they've, they've gotten higher performances in both spots. And I think that's made a difference too. There's something to be said too.

"Is and Josh Taylor. Oh yeah. I mean, he's yeah he's been awesome. I mean that, that run was incredible. Um, you know, and and but also that run came after, I mean brutal month of April, right? I mean even terrible. And so, I think that that adds to in a little bit where like it's it's just guys, we haven't necessarily seen do this enough to feel real real comfortable right now. To me, I don't think we should be relying a lot on Chris Sale. He, you, we expect him to be back right off Late. July early August right? Yes, he's going to be on track. He's already thrown rehab starts, correct, but he's been throwing some games and stuff. His first three of them I think is this week, but yeah, there you go. He's going to start throwing in rehab outings. Get him back. Lets Say by writer actually ironically right around the trade deadline. And not, let's say, and let's say, he gives you ten starts over the final two months of the season. Is that fair maybe 8 to 8 to 10? Yeah, something like that. And you know, he's young lady that when, if he's on and he's giving you five to six out Innings every night and they're eighty percent of what he was. I think that's the best you could Hope For Paws. Yeah. Oh no, yeah, I completely agree with you. I don't think that you can look at him and expect him to be, you know, Sai Young. You know, perennial Scion candidates. I Young Chris Sale but I think he could be. I think that's the biggest boost. They're going to get in the rotation, right. I just don't see them going out and trying to find some errors or I just don't think it's going to happen. So so I think I'm going to have to you need, need a volunteer to keep pitching like this which is maybe not the dominant Ace type guy, but he's been very good. If you got to get Iran to figure something out and and be more consistent than than get some version of sale. And if you can run those three guys in the playoffs, then now you're may be talking about something..

"Everybody, it's drags. And this week on Red Sox beat. I welcome the outstanding Chad Jennings covering, all things Red Sox for the athletic. You can and should be following him on Twitter off-chance Jennings. 22. That's all one word. And both numbers together. Chad, Jennings to to how you doing. Chad there are checks. How are you? I it's funny. It's funny, every time it's just brings up that that Twitter handle, I know nothing about jersey numbers. I am like among my friends on the beat. I mean I I can't tell you the most, the most famous uniform numbers in the history of sports and I've been a sports nut since I was a kid. And for some reason I've always so that's just my wife's favorite number. It really has no other connection to anything. I just went to, I definitely am into uniform numbers and am MBA fan. Grew up a sixer fan and my favorite player was not dr. J it wasn't Mo Cheeks. Wasn't Moses Malone. It was Andrew Toney. The Ragin Cajun The Boston Strangler of birth. Celtics fans. Remember him very, very well back in the day. But number 22 was my favorite number in high school. Warrant when I played basketball all because of Andrew Toney, and that is my life, a little history lesson in my personal life on who I was as a awkward, High School athlete. Now, we're on to the subject at hand, the 2021 Red Sox. There's so much Chad to break down here in this, this episode. I'm really glad I have you on, because a lot of ways we can go, we'll go with the obvious. First of all, how the Red Sox are fifty-five and thirty-six at the All-Star break, but they go in stumbling a little bit Losers of four of six, going into the brake and two of four. And I mean, two of three at home at Fenway over the weekend to the Philippines who were just, you know, a middling team of 44 and 40 fourteen. They looked a little flat over the weekend now. Oh, yeah, for sure. I mean, they could have swept that series. I mean, the second game, will end up being a blowout, but that was one bad inning. I mean, they, they could have, and probably should have won all three..

"Yeah no you're right talk to me about. It's usually for years. You and i would have this conversation in the reds traffic of the top five and so the names that i would ask you about where names that most people knew. Because that's what happens when you're when your team is drafting near the top. Here mill. the pack right so at seventeen overall. There's not that one name to focus on so give me like three four. Maybe five names that reds fans should start to get used to talking about between now and sunday. Though the thing. I've heard the most is college pitcher and that's a very common thing to hear for team drafting in that area. One of the names is ranked cusak pitcher out of wake forest. Who has done of the best stuff in the entire draft class. A six foot six hundred thirty five pound right hander. Who had the seventy fastball on the twenty eighty scouting scale I curve ball. That can get plus questions about how he can command it and a lot of people think he's going to be a reliever long-term but i think that's the name that would be really interesting to land there. I on the safer side more of the. If you're comparing cusak two hundred green the nikola would be the jordan. I picture that has an already plus plus change and absolute Fall out of the sky type of pitch that's going to give hitters trouble. Throws everything for strikes doesn't have an elite fastball. But a guy you can see moving quickly through the system That the name that i wouldn't be surprised Gutter huddling is an interesting name. If he gets to that point this guy was probably going to be a top five pick but unfortunately suffered an injury. But when he's on his best he was right. Below that jack lighter and kumar rocker quality Four pitches bats and he throws all of them for strike. So i would say those three guys would be the names to keep an eye on and then what other a kind of kinda sorta local guy or closer to Same bachmann out of miami of ohio. A guy who If he was going to a different school probably be a locked for a top five. Pick as two elite pitches in his fastball and slider in his starting to throw his change for strikes kind of the the big bigger version of maximizing last year's class who was the third overall. Pick so names like that. I think are going to be the names that are associated with cincinnati. Going forward of of those if you're a reds fan or if you're if you're if you're drafting on behalf of the reds and all of those guys are available which who knows if that'd be the case. Is there one that you would have your eyes on more than the others. i think bachmann. I think that that would be the guy that i would have the most interesting just because i think that collegiate arm. He's the one that offers the most upside. And there's a decent floor here too like if he can't contain his delivery well enough and if the command doesn't improve a little bit certainly has the control the start but the command is different than control. That would be the armed. That i'd be interested in because if the worst came to worst you could make him a lights out reliever but there. Is that chance that if everything max is out for him that's the top of the rotation starter i would put Cusak probably third Our second in that list Hoaglund surge just because of the injury risk. And then i would say that which would be forced..

"The win and extras but even early on starting in the first inning of that ballgame kumar. Rocker just did not look like himself. And that seemed to be kind of a trend throughout this college world series. I know vanderbilt managed to get the win there. Even though that wasn't kumar rockers doing he pitched friday against nc state. The problem is that was basically. Nc states jv squad and he looked dominant again. But that's that goes back to what i mentioned earlier that if kumar rockers playing against a team that he is just a lot better than he truly does look like one of the. Most elite pitchers you've ever seen in college baseball if he's playing against a lineup that has talent that has elite level talent on the offensive side. The ball kumar rocker at times looks a little more mediocre than you would expect so he dominated against an nc state lineup that was closer to their jv squad and then wednesday night he came out and kinda got roughed up against mississippi state Now all of this was not kuma rockets fault. Vanderbilt's defense led him down a little bit way too many errors throughout the college world series for vanderbilt. They committed three more wednesday night which brought their total to thirteen for the college world series. Foreign away the most from any team in this year's college world series defense wins championships and defense did not come to play for vanderbilt Recall back in game. Three rocker had a easy ground ball. Hit back to him that he spun and tried to start a double play to get out of the inning. I can't remember what inning it was in. And instead you basically just short arm the ball and senate out into center field that kept the inning alive. Mississippi state got hitting after that and added another runner to things like that. The defense has to help. And i understand that one was on rocker himself. But just all in all the defense for vanderbilt in this college world series. They were not there Up to this point vanderbilt had kind of been living on their bats. Because the defense wasn't there i mean against arizona in the opener you were in a situation. You got taken to twelve innings. I think it was before you one seven six or something like that Then after that you got beat by nc state one nothing. You're you're bats. Didn't show up. Jack lighter had a phenomenal performance in that one only gave up one run on a home run. But you're bats didn't show up and you lose one nothing then. They managed to write the script just a little bit. They flipped it. And then you got lucky against nc state the nc state basically jv squad you manage to beat them and then you didn't have to beat them again because the game ended up being basically a forfeit a no contest vanderbilt advances and then we saw what happened in the college world series finals. That's all there really is to say about vanderbilt in this college world series final and in this college world series as a whole jack lighter did his job phenomenally well. he pitched in two games. He gave up one run in the first in the first outing that he had and he gave up. I believe it was two in the second one. You went one and one. Because you're bats didn't show up in the first one that you only gave up a home run Kumar rocker looked a little off throughout this entire college world series. The vanderbilt defense looked a little off throughout all of this college world series. Those are the keys to vanderbilt. That's the reason. Mississippi state is the national champions. Now that is not to take away from what mississippi state did at all by any means what will bed nor did in this year's college world series is just phenomenal Go back to the opening round where bednarz pitched against texas and mississippi state. One that when. I believe it was two one and bed nor only gave up one run Against the number two national seat. That's good stuff from a guy who's been shaky at times bed nor has the stuff but the problem is his consistency has not always been there. That's the reason. His draft stock was a kind of up in the air. Coming into the college world series. Well in your opening round that you pitched against texas. You did what you did. You looked phenomenal. And i think that got the eyes of some scouts out there that helped draft stock a lot and then in game three winner. Take all of the college world series final. Going up against kumar. Rocker will bed. Nar through six innings. No hit ball with no runs. And i believe to walks potentially and he wanted to go more but chris limos. It was actually pretty funny. Bednarz in the dugout was trying to talk. La- mona's into letting him go back out for another inning and you could read the bonuses lips and he was like. I don't wanna hear it that. Basically your future is more important than pitching another inning. Here in omaha will bed nor did his job extremely well. If you're mississippi state fan you deserve to send a thank you to that guy because that guy is the reason y'all or national champions first national championship in mississippi state history the History of their university at least for a team sport perspective so phenomenal stuff will bed nar rightfully so one. The most outstanding player from this year's college world series. And like i said. I just went through what he did. It's quite obviously deserved so phenomenal stuff congrats to mississippi state for just being the best team in omaha this year yeah. They didn't go into undefeated it but all in all they were d- most balanced the best team that you saw in omaha.
