Working @ Twitter

"Haven I'm honored twitter headquarters here in San Francisco. I'm university recruiter here. And I'm going around asking people what they love about working out twitter and I'm going to start with Mr Jordan Jackson. Hey how you doing kid. How are you so how do you like being an engineer here twitter? I'll love it actually. There's nothing rather be doing S.. Partly my one of my favorite things about being engineer. Oh my job I was Kinda like at a front desk or Pilots will come up and talk to me in requesting for me so now I could just throw my headphones and just co for like hours and just being my own little world when I was coming on during our new hire orientation. There was a man working here named Adam Bain had Adam and he had a little video and he was espousing the joys of how much bacon we serve here. That's my co tweet William William. He works in Ataur and he was just in his video with a plate of Bacon and I was like where is this fountain of Bacon and as it turns out we actually have. This cast asked iron skillet in our cafeteria that is just filled with Bacon. And it's there every day it's the Bacon skillet and it's you know. It just made me so so happy twitter's dedication to my bacon enjoyment and so I was. I was just really excited about that when I started working here. I mean obviously you know. There's like lots of fun. People but the Bacon welcome to building characters by at twitter you an inside view into launching a career in intact and how to have fun along the way. I'm your host Doodo meadow and this is our very first episode. y'All dedicated to unconventional backgrounds of tweets. That's how we call twitter employees and I'm going to bring William Jordan back to talk to us about what they did before four twitter and how they got a job here but before we do that I want to introduce you to my co host. This season hand. There's really hey what are you. Tell us what do you do too. I work in recruiting program manager. That sounds like fun. Yeah Super Fun. I was working with you and university and I just moved like a month ago. We had a great time doing university. Now I don't travel as much humans in those pointsman missing out on my travel points. So here's the thing you don't know about John before coming to twitter. He was doing something. Maybe Kinda SORTA. Let's just say different before twitter. I worked as a circus Acrobat for fourteen years which is a really long time to work in the circus. I think toward the circus aerial ropes and double tragedies mostly do you get into the you just find something on the newspaper like about one ED. I worked in film before circuits worked dancing theater and then circus last Oh holy performing career is Kinda Fun because you're a little product manager like you own. Your circus number. Is your product. Say Make this number you make the costumes. Let's get the costumes and the music. And the choreography new. Build this little number you film the Number Higher Viagra and photographers to film it for you and then you ship that video out okay. Here's my number. I could do this in your show circus or for your corporate event or for your cruise ships. Have you ever been like scared in any of your now. I don't do circus anymore after that anything that happens here. It's just like piece of Que. Did have like a job interview once and they're like so. How do you handle pressure? Well usually Julie if I mess something up like a lot of people can die so I think I'll be okay and this is what we're going to explore in today's episode. No not not the circus. But how can you make it to twitter even if your background is not necessarily in tech and the stores you're about to hear well you don't WanNa Miss. I am so stay with us if your student who wants to work at twitter are twenty twenty applications are now live. Go to t that co slash apply. That's t-that co slash apply. Where back and I'm bringing my two tweets from the top of the episode? Starting with Mister William Love. Hello William I love your last name thank you you can think my mother for letting me she per maiden name she. She fought hard for that one. So what do you do here to him. I work on our HR team. I handle a benefits and wellness for twitter so keeping people mentally we physically well. When I was in college I was a history? Major that does not translate into working in the tech industry in any way whatsoever. And when I got out I I sort of jumped into. They have sort of those entry level you know market development reps and sales development where you do a lot of cold calling very unglamorous which which is not a word and it's just not really fun engaging work and honestly my twitter story kind of by accident. I was sort of mindlessly looking for jobs at my house and I get a phone call actually from a staffing agency and they need someone to come in here and do various sort of you know. Menial filing paperwork paperwork me. My job was to sit in a closet for six seven hours a day. Just file thing. I know that closet big closet. You're used to always be in. Ah Yes love literally and metaphors so I spent a lot of time in there. I do want to let a lot of our listeners audience now that hey twitter is not only tech. We have other roles. A lot of people think that they have to have a software engineer. A coding background to work at twitter. And you really don't about a half a rolls or non integral all you have to do is determination and show that you care about this platform and then you know overtime. It's sort of evolved and I started learning a lot of things and I was rewarded for the year and a half of hard work that I put in actually being converted into a full time employee so it was very very unexpected. I've been here. Gosh three and a half years now and like if you had told me in two thousand fifteen that would be working at twitter. I honestly wouldn't have lead you as you can see. See you can come to twitter from any type of background even as a history major. Just like William did and now let's bring back Jordan Jackson and hear his story when I know. What do you do here at twitter? Most offer engineer on health and reporting team before I came in I was active duty and US Air Force served Abou- how almost six years I always wanted to make my own company like of course beyond the bay area. Everyone is obsessed with tech so I wanted to have my own company. One day Tom Kept run into this problem where I didn't have a technical co founder. I didn't have anyone to a code. And then our money to pay anyone Didn't have anyone who's like ability for you. so My solution for that was to teach myself how to cope. So that's how I landed into coding in It was something I picked up a couple of times actually I. I probably started learning how to cope. Maybe two or three times then. I like we'll come back to it And so One day hours on base and I was Speaking with one of the pilots Because that's my job in here. I helped pilots before they took off on missions and I was just talking about like I think I'll blackbirds actually. And then he he randomly just say like go on no one to buy groceries and I was like Oh really. Can you introduce me to this person. So it was really like Randall. which is how I met John Longtime ago and over? The course of I want to say Maybe a year to eighteen months like we just like a really great relationship. While I was still active duty still learn how to code and by the end of my list. Many constantly like on her like getting out Air Force Like the Communist twitter Jordan ended up landing and interview for an internship by constantly communicating with his contact here twitter and guys and another episode. We're going to talk about what it takes to now that interview but I wanted to point out that Jordan basically got connected to twitter through one of our biard. JEEZ twitter blackbirds water.

Interviewing @ Twitter

"I feel like we all have to confess our twitter story. I I showed up to my interview on the wrong day. Oh my God wade the interview that day. No they told me Ma'am your interviews. Tomorrow I showed up the day before the day before it was the day before. But I guess that's shows just how eager lying how much you wanted to Joe Julie Spin. Yeah Crooner Hi there. Welcome to build and characters by twitter. You an inside view into launching a career in tag and how to have fun along the way. I'm your host Julia. Romeo and a University of recruiter here at twitter today. We'll be talking about interviewing. It's highly likely you'll be as the question. Why do you want to work at twitter as my guests? Who told me the worst answers? They've gone to this question. Here's my co host Don Julich. I think a pretty bad answer is like oh I just went to work at a big Tech Company. Oh well I mean you can work at Google to their bigger than we are. Macrae told me help you interview somewhere else then. Definitely not a good answer. I think that the worst answer. This is a net as senior software engineer. Here at twitter. You could possibly give is oh I wanNA censor so and so or not. I hear that solicited as well. Hey Do you have a question for me? Use the HASHTAG building characters on twitter. And don't forget to follow us at twitter you okay. Let's talk about the technical interview what it looks like what it feels like and how to get ready. If you're interested in a non engineering role hold on tight will get to you in a moment and you might learn a thing or two from the section. Now let's welcome our guests for this episode. My name is Susan and I am a software engineer. Twitter I work in an area called client configuration Katie Hawks. I'm in the Program Manager for Twitter University. Which IS EDUCATION FOR ENGINEERS? So we deal with on boarding engineers when they first start in. The ongoing technical trainings. My name is Louis and I am on the engineering recruiting team. I know the also do something really fun. You also with a little bit out there right. I am one of the CO chairs of twitter. Ls here on the West Coast. Okay when I see technical interview going on here twitter. I will often see students. Interacting with their interviewer writing code on a wide board. That honestly looks like hieroglyphs to me so wanted to hear from Susan. What is actually happening in there? It will be structured part explaining something you already know about. We WanNa hear you communicate your technical knowledge and also part show us your ability to write some code so you'll be asked to write a little bit of code for us and we will then walk through what it is. You wrote that we can understand your intentions and understand your ability to analyze what you just provided. Okay so the first interview the first five minutes what what's supposed to happen than the next forty five minutes and lastly the forty-five minutes behavioral interview here at Twitter. We actually let you either type on a laptop or if you're having a video conference interview you'll be asked to connect to a web browser and we'll send you a link and what we will do is watch you take your answers to technical coating question. He was example. Coding question like a ballpark like what's a coding question. Like it's fine to practice with something. Simple like swap two variables. I know that sounds super easy and something that you probably have already mastered. But it's nerve wracking to open up a web browser knowing that somebody is going to watch every keystroke that you make if you say. Hey I know Java make sure that you got some basics you have some algorithms down where you can just type them out cold through your fingers like swapping two variables a good thing to look up before you come to a technical interview. In my opinion is something known as insertion sort insertion sort is a really common algorithm that as an engineer. I have used professionally. Probably almost every single company I've ever worked at look up. Insertion SORT and in your favourite language code up insertion sort and practice that until it just flows from your fingers. That's solid advice. Right there review your data structures review your simple algorithms such as the searches in sorts. Take a look at your data. Structures like lists linked lists Hash tables and understand simple operations and the run. Time OR BIG O. Costs of those operations as well as the runtime and big. Oh cost of those algorithms and yes. It's great if you right perfect code but let me tell you a secret. There is no software engineer. That always writes perfect code straight. This is shocking. If you're Kotas no bugs in it. I doubt you wrote it. Inclusion lives a twitter. We host interactive onsite events for historically underrepresented students and computer science. Learn more at T. DOT com slash diversity matters? That's T- that CO SLASH DIVERSITY MATTERS. Alright Future tweets interns. Do you know what the best interviewees having common don't feel stumped feel ready if you feel challenged by the question candidates that strongly embraced the challenge and Feel Eager. Even they can admit. Wow I'm a little afraid of this question but if still dive right in and give it a shot that's going to show a resiliency and positive attitude so you landon interview with twitter when you nervous and then you make a mistake then. What here are some tips hint? It's okay to make mistake. If you catch yourself making an error. Our job is to make sure you understand in a collaborative environment. Making the stakes is okay. If you see your problem please go ahead and fix it. You've got plenty time because it's beautiful to see someone catch themselves and then given the opportunity to correct their mistake as the interviewee you're sitting in a room for a few hours and people are coming and going and talking to you so it's kind of like it's your office and putting yourself in the head space of like this. Is My office like that. Helps me feel confident. And when people come in stand up I shake their hand. I greet them if I need a break. I asked for on say hey can I have five minutes like in some water kind of switches that power dynamic in a way that makes you feel less like you're on trial and everybody is here to see if you're going to get something wrong but instead of having a conversation these people are coming to speak with you and you're asking them questions as well. It's okay to be excited. You should be excited. We cannot wait to meet you but please be mindful. Body language matters. It's okay to be excited. I would be mindful of the ways that physically manifest so things like rocking in your chair. Tapping the table. I'm somebody who fidgets little bit when I have that. Nervous energy or excitement. So whenever I'm interviewing I always put a pen in my hand. Usually because I'm taking notes while I'm being interviewed but it helps me to. Just keep my hands still and not fidget. Okay future troops and turns if you're nervous during the interview. Try this. It's magic I don't know if you watch family feud but you always have that one person that buzzes the Buzzer to early and gives an answer. That's completely different from the question was asking. That happens in real life as well right. You're so eager to respond that mentally. You're not even listening to it's being asked. Silence is not a bad thing in an interview. Take the question in. Ask clarifying questions at least here at Twitter. We have paired interviews for example. And that's for reason we WANNA simulate that collaborative environment. We want to really show you what it would be like to work here so known ever feel like you're there on your own responding to an interview bring your interviews with you. Bring them along for the journey. Show them how you're thinking and if you're nervous don't feel bad saying that you are nervous right. Show them again that vulnerability interviewing it's not an easy thing and I think we all understand that so when I noticed that the candidate seems to be in this excitable state the first question I asked him is. Are you nervous and you know? They're like nervous excited all that I asked them to put a number on it and then I say okay. Imagine that coming down and as I say these things I tell them look. I'm here to seek out a collaborator and a team mate. I WanNa see the best in you. I as your interviewer. I'm rooting for you. I want you to do your absolute finest work here. Because I'd like to see what it's like for us to see each other every day. Hey we want to hear from you doing the Combo by tweeting at US using HASHTAG building characters and follow. Us atwitter you. I think one thing that a lot of people do they prepare is work solo on things. They think okay. I need to understand this programming language and these problems so they just you know heads down do it at their laptop but that isn't the environment you will be in in an interview. So if you're short on time or preparing for any interview I say. Trying like simulate the environment of the interview. If it's going to be a phone interview ask a friend. Call you and ask you those questions. I would add a couple of things here one. We're not saving lives at twitter so obviously it depends on your situation but if someone tells you that you need to come in the next day for an interview feel free to push feel free to explain why that's not ideal for you how you're not being set up for success and I think it gives you an indicator again of ultimately the company culture and what we're really after. I think you have to be your size advocate for ultimately your success and the second thing I would say is leverage recruiters. Were here for a reason and really rely on them to to give you the preparation. You need for interviewers. We've learned so much today. From what a technical interview looks like to actual coating tips. Now it's time to hear our recruiters questions so I think my favorite question happens during the behavioral portion of the interview. And it's really on some reflection and self awareness. How would your manager describe your biggest areas of improvement? And how would your manager described your biggest weaknesses changing that question? From how would you describe it to Howard? Your manager describe that helps bring that other perspective outside perspective and show whether or not that candidate has us off awareness and understands how they can continue to grow in their deductible or whether they don't and I think that's a really big indicator for success at twitter and really it's a big indicator for being able to succeed in an accelerator career. I like to ask questions that. Give me an indicator of what the person values and what drives them so. I ask things like what's an accomplishment. You're really proud of sometimes. I can really interesting stories out of it. And I didn't know that they were like a national champion in some kind of sport but I find that out in that moment and I also like to ask what what gets your bed in the morning. What lights you up. And then conversely. What's the kind of things you avoid a little bit? And that gives me an insight into what does person will enjoy working on and if that aligns with what the what the work. I will be giving them on the team. I always usually ask what their long and short term goals are. Is this next step in your career working with me. Is that GonNa get you closer to your goal like if goals to be master. Not You probably shouldn't do this job like this is probably not a great job for you to make sure that. I'm hiring them for the right role and this is going to help them get to their long term goals. Create your own hired this amazing once again. It's time for my favorite part of the podcast today. We're talking to someone who smashed their interview and got an internship. Here is the turn of date. My name is Brennan Bar and the town experience intern this summer. He's actually my my minty Alyssa's GonNa say so. Tell me anything funding. You did hear twitter this summer. Tons of fun stuff mateen. The town experienced team is kind of the people who really innovate what it means to recruit new talent here at twitter Really audited are processes. We've had just so many cool projects over the summer. I can't really talk about too much. Because it's mostly some internal hiring things but it really has been a pleasure to be able to. Kinda like just brag about all the cool stuff from my team gets to do. Brennan was working on some internal comms stuff for me and he wrote some stuff that one of the higher up exact sent out so we thought that was pretty cool. He ghost wrote something for someone really high up. Ooh email from some really high that ask so I thought it was pretty cool. So tell me now. What's your favorite snack twitter? Oh I have to say the dried mangos have won my heart this summer to know anything that you learn here twitter. They GonNa take with you for the rest of your life. Well to take a page of John's book his Macho. This summer has been without data. Everyone's an expert so hungry somebody but It really is make sure you have dated a backup everything you say that you can even more confident when you're presenting to people.

This is the golden state media concepts baseball. Podcast mr hello and welcome in new another edition of the gsm. See podcast brought to you by the g. m. c. podcast network. I'm your host kevin mahalick. It's thursday november nineteenth. I appreciate you guys listening in. We are officially one week away from the thanksgiving holiday. Hopefully everybody out. There is getting ready. Got their ingredients their recipes ready to go there cooking books. Whatever it is but hopefully everybody stay in safe and has plans to do so. I know things are getting crazy. Here in the northeast corona virus regulations or recommendations are popping up all over the place since we've now had an increase in cases and the kids are now back to learning. Virtually no longer in school. Daycares are still open. It's crazy here. And i know wherever you're listening. Things continue to evolve thinks continued to change almost on a day to day basis so with the holiday coming up. Please do your best to stay safe. Stay healthy while still getting together and enjoying yourselves and being thankful for everything that we have here in twenty twenty even though it's been a tough year. I'm sure there's still a lot for you. And i to be thankful for out there so we got a great show lined up for you here today right at the top. We're gonna talk theo epstein the chicago cubs. What does this mean moving forward well then transition into some recent surgeries that some big name guys have received here in the past week. Cody bellinger mike. Clemenger both going under the knife. What's that mean for. Twenty twenty one. Does this change any of our expectations predictions. What's the deal with that. And then we'll kind of wrap up today's episode getting into franscisco lindores trade conversation. I'll give you guys my my thoughts on where he's going to end up and possibly for what and then we'll touch on free agent chatter here in the fourth and final segment. So come on in with us here. We're gonna jump right in now once again. Thanks for listening to the mcc baseball. Podcast but theo epstein steps down as president of baseball operations for the cubbies he was there for the last nine seasons. He had one year remaining on his contract but decided this winter would be the ideal time to step down and a lot of people throughout baseball. And i myself. I talked to you guys about it on previous podcasts. That this offseason certainly made sense. In the timing of the franchise the team and just the direction that everything is headed so first off shoutout to theo epstein and amazing career in chicago over the course nine years. They made three national league championship series appearances. They have the one world series title and twenty sixteen. This of course ended a one hundred plus year drought and epstein coming over from the red sox where he ended that eighty six year drought. So epstein certainly issue in for hall of fame ending two of the three longest droughts in world series history. In a matter of i don't know twelve years is pretty insane to certainly think about. But what do i mean in regards to that. This offseason the timing for theo to step down just made sense compared to next year. Well this is because the cubbies have a ton of roster decisions to make both this off season and next off season and theo alluded to this in his press conference when he was talking about. What's next why the timing is right now. In the long short of it is john. Lester is a free agent. Kris bryant has one year left. Havi air bias. Has one year left. Anthony rizzo kyle schwarzer. They are all going to be free agents after the twenty twenty one season in all entering the final season of arbitration eligibility. So with this being said and all of these guys making really good on there's going to have to be decisions made on the future of these players and you would certainly look to start that rebuild process or that long term extension process this offseason compared to next offseason when each person would be testing free agency. And because of this basically. Theo is doing right by the cubbies. And saying hey. I'm not going to extend hobby air. By as you know. Four years eighty million dollars and then walk out the door in six months and say hey hopefully plays well or i'm not going to be negotiating because i'll just give him what he wants and i'm not going to be here to deal with the fallout or the repercussions. So you certainly have to respect theo. And his outlook and kind of understanding of business practice in what is best for the organization. So who is going to be making these decisions though. Who's taken over for. Theo epstein and that is a gentleman by the name of jed hoyer who is currently the general manager of the chicago cup. So he will be promoted to the president of baseball operations title. But jed has been with theo epstein for seventeen out of the last nineteen seasons. There were two years. The with jed was actually in san diego between the time of the red sox and the cubbies for theo. But for a guy to learn under theo epstein for seventeen at an eighteen years. When at least three world series championships. There can't be a better guy to take over and run your ball club. But again jed hoyer is going to be making the decisions on these guys and not theo epstein. Because theo's essentially going to step away. So what is next for theo epstein. Of course here myself you guys know. I'm in the greater philadelphia area. So everybody is going absolutely bananas trying to get the hill epstein in here as our president of baseball operations i mean twitter is full of blank check. Give him ownership. Give him whatever he wants to get him here in philadelphia. And personally i would love theo epstein to be the president of baseball ops for the phillies. I think it's a fantastic higher. If they're able to get him here. Like i mentioned the sixers recently having success now the phillies if they're able to bring in a name like theo epstein and the local sports market would just explode with enthusiasm. But here's the problem with connecting those dots and theo epstein sent out a letter a memo and email. Whatever you wanna call it To kind of friends and compadres within the baseball world and along short of it basically said that You know he will not be working in a ballpark this summer for the first time in thirty years so mentally right now. He's ready to count at checkout ready to recharge and take a break now. It doesn't say that. Hey i'm done i'm retiring. I'm riding into the sunset. I mean the guy is an even fifty years old so he certainly understands that this is it for the rest of his career but he just doesn't know what's next and his communication through the media and something that i found fascinating was just self awareness and self reflection where he stated basically what let me see. I wanna make sure. I get the quote right for you. He spoke about how he has best at building transforming and then shrimping and not so much at maintaining excellence or maintaining greatness. So again he's able to look in the mirror and kind of look at saying. Hey i like a rebuilding project. Starting something from the ground up more so than possibly coming into a l. a. dodgers or new york yankees where the machine just kind of churns and you're not trying to take it off the tracks. You're just trying to keep it going as quickly as possible. As opposed to the two potential opportunities that we have right now which are the philadelphia phillies and the new york mets. So the fact that the mets and the phillies where they are currently in their process of rebuilding not only with the team on the field but the minor league organizations the minor league depth the prospects that draft prospects how much they use analytics compared to old school scouting where everybody falls on that pendulum. There's a lot to be recreated here with the phillies and mets so. I don't think theo epstein is going to jump into something next week. Of course reports are in philadelphia that they are going to reach out to him. They are going to see if he is interested in. If i'm theo epstein. I'm having a conversation. So that's where i think. Fans out there of the mets of the phillies. If you see over the next week to two weeks that. Theo is taken a meeting. And he's talking with ownership. Don't immediately assume that a contract is going to be had and a decision will be made. Because i do think he is set and taking a summer off. I know you've seen it with coaches in the past. You've seen it with front. Ocoee front office executives they just need to recharge kinda get away and you know you don't think about it right now but still in the middle of a pandemic here so for a gentleman and his family to completely uproots move location kind of tried to establish life in any sort of normalcy. Just adds to the issues right now. I mean we see it in football free agents. Yes that's not a problem because again. That's only for a few weeks a month through the end of the year. This would obviously be a five seven nine year commitment type of move and again. Are you really going to have theo be like. Hey guys were moving to philadelphia right now when the kids can't be in school or anything like that so it'll be fascinating to kind of see how the health and safety affects potentially any move going forward but the phillies there in need of direction. They really don't you know within the entire organization. They've recently transitioned from old school to new school. But how far they flip going back and forth. And then the new york. Mets steve cohen of course new ownership willing to spend top dollar looking at top prospects. This theo go into the city of new york and try to compete with the yankees in that market and that media group in that fan base with his new money that would be available to him or does he go to the phillies. I don't see any of those happening this summer. What i think could happen this summer is he would get some sort of you know opportunity within the league office where he wouldn't have to go in every day he wouldn't have to be pressed and just kind of an adviser type of person who would be involved with labor negotiations and the talks. That will be taking place between now and the start of the twenty twenty one season. I think theo could be a great. You know m- mediators probably the word to use their middleman that type of thing. So that's another potential option for him. And then lastly something that. I've read or looked at here that you know the more i thought about is something that i think is going to happen and this is where i'm putting my money. It's probably a long shot right now. But i think the team's going to get involved in an expansion team. I think major league baseball with the corona virus with the economic losses of the pandemic is going to look to expand as soon as possible once a vaccine in any sort of normalization resets itself. And i think the team basically leading the expansion team fits directly into his conversation about building transforming and triumphing it also basically gives him no floor or no. Hey if you fail your failure type of thing and its expansion team. I mean if they do anything but fail. That's what people have expected so potentially team moving forward in the city of nashville is where rumors are starting to happen out west portland and discussions there as well so i think location have a big to do. But we've heard dave dombrowski could be involved in an expansion team and david. Theo know each other well. So i think that there is an outside shot in more there than meets the eye as theo potentially going to an expansion team moving forward. But jed hoyer like. We said he's got this to make with the chicago cubbies. This is why. Theo step down at this time john lester currently a free agent and then the some of brian by warrior all in the last year of arbitration all will be free agents after twenty twenty one and then communication around the league is saying that you darvish and kyle hendricks could be available via trade as well so they are in full blown. Repoed and the question is how many of those five guys are back. Next year and i do think john lester return cy. I think he gets two year deal. You know maybe twenty five thirty million dollars ten to fifteen a year. He's on the back nine of his career. And i think he takes a paycheck with the team that he's been with just to continue marching forward. You then have kris bryant to man. He's one that i would look to get rid of. But you're going to be selling so low on his price based on his performance in twenty twenty and his past performances that the conversation becomes was it just a down year and he's going to bounce back or is this the new trajectory in the new outlook for kris bryant moving forward so if he bounces back as anywhere near the mvp that he was in the past. What you're gonna get form on. The trade market isn't going to be worth that sort of value. But if this six hundred is what you're looking at moving forward you got to move on from this guy here sooner than later. The next one is obviously by as. I don't think there's a ton of chances that he moves this off season with the free agent market simmons gregorious simeon a couple of other guys available. And then of course the big fish francisco. Lynn door on the trade market and rumored not to be back in cleveland next year. Which will touch on here in future segments but with that many available options in free agency and on the market. I don't think by as would get you any value. Returning anthony. Rizzo you just picked up his option. So i think he will be back and then it comes down to Schwartzberg out in the outfield. Who i believe is the piece to move on from if you can. But there are options available out there. Jack petersen a couple other free agents that are very similar style of players so again. I don't think the value for warburg will be extremely high but i don't think you can bring everybody back out of the seven names. I mentioned i think you gotta make some sort of a move kyle. Schwarzer to me is the easy one to move on from next on the list be kris bryant and then really i think rizzo and buy as we'll be back no matter what in twenty twenty one but those are decisions. Those are trades that will be made by jed hoyer moving forward and not three ot epstein has once again. He has decided to step down here. As president of baseball operations for the cubbies so phillies fans want him. Mets fans want him. But i think he ends up in the league office and then possibly with an expansion team in a year or two once. We get on the other side of this. So hopefully it's affiliates. Give him ownership stake. Give him anything he wants. That's me as a fan talking. But i just don't think it's going to happen here. So that'll wrap things up for the first segments of the mc baseball podcast brought to you by the gs. Podcast network will pause now for a word from one of our sponsors and one of our sister shows but when we come back we'll get into some injury conversation colliding journ bellinger recently having surgery.

Wherever you're listening to this we really appreciate it but jumping back in here diving right into segment number two. We're talking about the recent injuries that have taken place across major league baseball. A couple of big names have undergone surgery recently and the first one to discuss of course is mike clubbing. Jer of the san diego padres and it was announced on the same day. That clemenger agreed to a two year. Eleven and a half million dollar contract with the san diego padres and with that same announcement. They announced that he would miss the entire twenty twenty one season due to tommy john surgery. And let's see clemenger made four point one million dollars this past year or would have of course it was pro rated over the course of sixty games but he had two years of arbitration remaining. And that's basically what the padres bought out for a total of eleven and a half million. Which i think is kind of right on points with where he would have been this past year this upcoming year he would been probably around that six or seven mark and then the following season right around the same due to missing the year with an injury so Maybe they got a couple of million dollar discount on clubbing jerry. But overall if you're mike you're not upset with eleven and a half million dollars. Come in your way over the next two seasons and they were able to set up his contract that he'll make about three to four million dollars next year and the following season make that seven to eight million dollars with a couple of escalators based on number of starts so this could very easily become a two year. Twelve million dollar agreement with clubbing during the padres but This is the second time that climbing is going to be going under for. Tommy john surgery. He missed all of twenty twelve back when he was in the minor leagues with this injury. So the second time it's happening for this individual that's never a good sign but honestly as we get further out and these are becoming more and more common. We are learning that. There is a bit of a shelf life when it comes to tommy john surgery and competitive innings and remaining in baseball. If you know you get it on the tail end of your career like verlander or some of those those other guys when you get into retirement. Obviously everything is fine. But if you're continuing to pitch at a high level We're looking at Seven ten twelve fifteen years with these surgeries before they have to go in there again. So hopefully everything goes well for my clubbing. Jer- i'm going to miss watching him. Pitch and twenty twenty one. The guy is full of energy out there. He's a ton of fun to watch but unfortunately for padres fans they're going to be looking in a different direction for the top of their rotation next year. You know that parlays into kind of the follow up conversation is you know. Where do the padres go from here. Of course they made those deals at the deadline to try to make a push not only this past year but in the next couple of seasons but now with the loss of clubbing jury. You know has a hole at the top of their rotation and you know yes they will have the nelson lament zach davies. Chris paddock as the one. Two three heading into twenty twenty one and they do have a number of young arms within the organization already They could look to start. Mackenzie gore although he could use some seasoning potentially in the minor leagues. You have ryan. Weather's joey lou. Chessy adrian morgan Of a couple other internal candidates that could potentially fill this role. But of course glenn scherr was looked at us. Potentially being the ace being the number one or number two at the top of this rotation. And if you're gonna fill that with a weather's or a gore the drop their from a number one to a number five is certainly something that you were not anticipating as a padres fan. So where does that leave you heading into free agency. Of course the top arm on the market is trevor. Bauer and i don't think with his price range and with the future outlook of the padres. That's an avenue that they're going to be involved in. I mean we've all heard the names for trevor bauer. We'll get into that in our fourth and final segment a little bit more when we touch on free agency. But i don't see the padres being in the bauer sweepstakes so the next tier that you're looking at is kind of that more reasonably priced here such as tajon walker or jayco or even a mike minor potentially coming off a down year looking at that free agency pool at the top of the list. You know i could see them being in on the walker sweepstakes potentially onoda rizzi. I don't think they're going to go long. Term once again with any of these contracts to tie themselves into anything but with that being said when you look at the payroll for twenty twenty. If it was a regular season the opening day payroll was one hundred and fifty one million for the padres and as of right now for twenty twenty one. They currently have one hundred thirty. Three million portrayed to everybody on the team so they have eighteen million less tied up in contracts this year as opposed to last year and of course quite a bit of room until the luxury tax kicks in so they do have money if they are looking to spend it and if that's the avenue they looked to go. The potential other solution could be the trade market. I mean you're looking at Names that we've discussed such as lance lynn from the rangers or a trevor williams joe. Musk grove from the heart from the pirates. Excuse me potentially blake. Snell is out there or collars carrasco for the indian so the starting market there are people available but having just given up assets to bring in mike clemenger and a few other individuals at the trade deadline you know how many prospects with the padres be willing to give up to kind of fill that hole. It almost becomes a two for one this year. We're making two different trades only for one pitcher on your return on investment and then you begin your full bang for your buck until the twenty twenty two season when of course climbing jers able to come back and at that point he would be one year away from free agency so he kinda begins to be looked at like a rental almost in that aspect so the padres are in a tough spot. I think they go middle tier free agency market. I don't anticipate them giving up additional aspect. That's or additional prospects in regards to a trade for a lance lynn. Or somebody along those lines. So i certainly see them in the Charlie morton sweepstakes the tajon walker and the jayco derision conversation to try to fill the hole left by mike. Clemenger but Cody bellinger was the other player to undergo surgery over the past couple of days in this one is different than clubbing jerry. Because this was cody. Bellinger's right shoulder and he actually separated it celebrating his game. Seven and lcs home run so he hit a home run rounded the bases came back and was celebrating with kiki hernandez and they went for the forearm bash. In apparently cody went a little too strong and his shoulder popped out of place so he underwent surgery over the past couple of days. He's looking at a week rehab. So we're looking at two to three months here. And of course that aligns with Spring training early word out of dodgers camp is that they anticipate him being ready to go when it comes to spring training so belly. Journalists is non throwing shoulder so that is a positive if you are a dodgers fan but the injuries certainly hindered bellinger's performance in the world series He was only three for twenty two with one home. Run and three. Rbi's he had four r. b. is in the divisional round. I believe it was five. Rb is in the nfl cbs. So you saw his performance dip in the world series and the injury to his shoulder was certainly a big explanation as to why that took place but no lingering concerns into twenty twenty one so this is a bit of a different conversation than the one we had about mike jer. I don't anticipate any subsequent or follow up moves in regards to reaction to this injury. I believe they just rehab him and try to get him healthy as possible to come back and be back to that. Mvp caliber that. He was a couple of years ago because overall twenty twenty was a bit of a down year. for cody. bellinger house so he will look to bounce back here very shortly. But cody bellinger's injury got me thinking and just a bit of an outside of the box couple of minutes here wrapping up segment number two. I wanted to look at other major league baseball players who have injured themselves celebrating because the first one that comes to mind obviously is within the nfl and martin gramatica showing my age years. A millennial in my thirties but gramatica celebrated a field goal for the cardinals. Back in the day jumped up and down celebrated and tore his acl when he landed and basically that ended all field goal celebrations or are big time celebrations in the nfl. So i thought to myself. Has this ever happened in baseball. Are we looking at any circumstances. Are instances where somebody is injured themselves. You know celebrating similarly to bellinger. And i was able to find five names over the past ten. Fifteen years are so in different circumstances that injured themselves. So i wrote down the list here and of course number one everybody remembers. I can't believe it was ten eleven years ago now at this point but starting out at number five we have ramon ramirez not a lot of people. Remember this name with the new york mets back. In the day he actually pulled a hamstring jumping out in celebrating from the dugout when johan santana threw the first no hitter in mets history. So this is actually a common theme here. It seems to be when pitchers throw a no hitter. Perfect game people jump out sprint out of the dugout and celebration and unfortunately ramon ramirez his manager even said he didn't even get to the dog pile he didn't even jump on the. It was before that when the hamstring popped in cost him a A couple of months in that unfortunate situation so similarly to that one. Let's see here chris. Congressman of the miami. Marlins back in the day injured his knee. He had to miss about a month because he was celebrating a walk off home. Run so another instance where he was coming out of the dugout celebrating with the guys at home plate got caught up in a bit of a tussle ultimately injured his knee to where he had to miss some time moving forward but these top three or are the ones that i remembered. Most those last couple of names not big names. So i didn't remember those instances but number three back in two thousand twelve. Aubrey huff injured his knee when he was celebrating matt canes perfect game so similarly to ramon ramirez huff coming out of the dugout at the end of the game trying to get to the mound mob matt cain and he twisted his knee goddess. Foot going over. The railing fell awkwardly and had to miss some time due to an injured knee and ultimately aubrey huff after. That was Really never the same player in kind of an unfortunate circumstance led to his knee injury. There number two this one man i i. I can't believe this one. This one's a really outside of the box. In two thousand and six on hell guthman injured derrek lee by giving him neck spasms after hitting him too hard in the head following a walk off home. Run and again. This takes me back to my football days. Where i remember a couple of times we had a running back through the whole he got hit. He had a bit of a concussion and it was a long run so our center came down to pick them up and smack him on the top of the head. You know nice runway to go not knowing. Of course that is was feeling a little funky at the time and didn't need to be padded so essentially same situation here derek lee. It's a walk off home run. He's rounding the bases from third heading home and he's getting mobbed by his teammates and this was back when people used to rough each other up i. I never really understood that fad of the walk off. It started as a celebration. And then it evolved into basically a beatdown of the guy who won the game. You know they'd rip is jersey. Punch him throw stuff. On and essentially this led to a neck spasm injured neck with derek liaison held guzman came out in too hard ultimately forcing him to miss some time. So the the most popular one the one that everybody remembers here. A number one on the list was in twenty ten when kendra rallies hit a walk off grand slam for the la angels rounding the bases. He came into home plate. Did the high jump came down with both feet and broke his leg up on landing on home plate so kendrick morales around juvenile and then the moment he lands hey just collapses down and is unable to walk miss the remainder of the season of course but a broken leg for kendra morale's so it's happened a handful of times out there where players have injured themselves celebrating now. None of these other five circumstances were in the postseason. This is the first time. I think on record. Where we've had somebody injure themselves in the playoffs via the celebration and like we said bellinger was able to remain for the world series but certainly did not perform up to the level of his satisfaction. So bellinger wrapping this up here. We'll be good to go for twenty twenty one. He'll be back for spring training so nothing to worry about for you dodgers fans out there but conversely the padres they take a big loss to the top of that rotation with the news of mike. Clever jer having to go under undergo. Tommy john surgery for the second time and Eight years here so it'll be interesting to see how the padres react. What they're move is now here in free agency. Or if they make a trade or even stand pat and go with some internal resources to fill that hole but That'll do it here for the second segments of the mc baseball podcast brought to you by gsm.

So do me a favor and check those out while you leave a rating review for us here at the baseball podcast jumping into segment number. Three here we're talking about francisco. Lynn door i know everybody out. There has heard that he is on the market. He will not be back with the cleveland indians for twenty twenty one he is projected to land just about twenty one million dollars in the final year of arbitration before he hits the market and Basically cleveland's come out and said we don't wanna pay him twenty one million and we're not going to give him a long term extension so come at us with your best offers knowing that potentially this could be a rental situation similarly to mookie betts last offseason essentially are especially if linda doesn't end up in the market to which he is looking for. I know bets being in. La that's obviously market one one a and major league baseball so when you get traded there with the Finances and the resources they have. You're looking to sign long term. And that's something that. I think lynn door will be looking at as well here with potential destinations but We've heard upwards of ten teams. You know across baseball here in regards to reaching out within the industry. Who's here in what what's going on and nobody really knows i mean. Of course you hear the standard names. The big market teams yankees dodgers angels. mets phillies. Then you have some people like the the reds or the braves even the blue jays being mentioned as a possible destination for lindores. So i have about eight or nine teams here on run down potential deals. That could be offered furlan door. I know of course there are a ton of prospects one through thirty and based on what they're looking for what they need. Each team is going to have different offers but just aren't surface level ultimately what could potentially offered furlan door here moving forward. And we'll start out with the new york yankees. A huge name is available. You have to go right to new york. You have to go right to la and figure out if they have the resources can they get it done. Would they be willing to give it up. Just for a rental and honestly with the yankees. Of course they would get lynn door. But you're looking at potentially giving up an outfielder you know. The indians need somebody in the outfield to come in and play right away for them. So a lot of these deals are going to include a major league ready outfielder as well as a couple of prospects to kind of offset you know. Now as well as the future for cleveland so from new york side of things. You're probably looking at moving. Clint frazier and then heading into the prospects. Contraire as peraza a couple of other different options available out there as well. Miguel angie har- louis skill alberta. You are all names in the top prospect list that we've heard potential suitors. Albert bray is the yankees twelfth rated prospect Handed pitcher luis gil is their rated prospect. So you're probably looking at a couple of top fifteen prospects internally plus a major league ready contributor to start the conversation here with the cleveland indians so the yankees have the goods i. It's just a matter of ultimately who would make the move here. And if you're getting frazier or and you are two of the biggest shifts at the yankees. Have i think this is a conversation that ultimately could continue. If you're a yankees fan so next up. We have the la dodgers as a potential destination. And of course depending on what l. as willing to give up some people have them talking about joe i agree or edwin rio s- potentially catcher kia burt ruiz involved in the deal. You know and honestly. I don't know if that's going to get it. I think you're looking at somebody. Like dustin may at the top of that prospect list. Tony gosselin i think the in the ends are going to have to get somebody who can come in and contribute right away this year but obviously still be under a solid contractor arbitration. Because they're not gonna look to pay somebody top dollar when they're giving up lynn door for the same reason so i think you're looking at dustin may potentially cody thomas from the outfield prospects. Mad badie is a prospect. Greg in rio would be prospect. So it's just a matter of how high on that prospect list l. a. is looking to go and if the indians think that the likes of dustin may would be more of a return than an andrew hard and day Clint frazier from the new york. Yankees side of things. So how high is l. a. Willing to go because on the surface level of those two i think the yankees have a bit more depth than a few more candidates for the indians to kind of go through when it comes to the prospect pool and what the team would be willing to give up so the top two are obviously the the dodgers and the conversation. But then you get to kind of that next level you know. You're looking now in the in the northeast. Here with the new york. Mets philadelphia phillies. So both of these teams are potentially looking to make a big splash in free agency. Jt rio mutoko. George springer trevor bauer or linked to these squads moving forward so of course you have to throw francisco lynn door into that conversation and again. It's just a matter of what could potentially be offered. You know from new york mets perspective. I think you'd start with outfield first. Baseman dominic smith. Once again the indians looking for people ready to contribute right now. Dominic smith coming off a very nice twenty. Twenty season would come in and fit that mold right away. Then you get into the prospect mold potentially short stopera. I'm ed rosario. Relief pitcher franklin colom. You know you're also looking at a shortstop andrei him that's know and then you get into recent draft pick signing this past first rounder pete. Crowe armstrong top outfield highschool pick. He he slots in as the mets number five pick. So if you're going with armstrong you could probably keep dominic smith out of the trade concept or a a riley gill gilliam. Who's the twenty fifth best prospect as a relief pitcher. So you're gonna have to give up either. Dominic smith or jeff mcneil plus some top end talent and with armstrong. Being so far away from big-league contributions could potentially see a few other names involved in. When you get to that top prospect level you start to get into four five. Six player deals as opposed to a one for two or one for three type of deal. You get into that too for four style of action moving forward. But i let's see when you're looking at the philadelphia phillies. Philadelphia are clamoring for them to put together a nice offer for francisco lynn door shortstop is a position of need for the phillies pairing lynn door with bryce harper alongside the top end of the rotation with nola wheeler howard. And that's where the conversation starts right because our the phillies willing to include somebody like alec bomb or spencer howard in the conversation and alec bomb is a non starter. A no go. He's the third baseman first basement of the future for the phillies. But potentially right hander. Spencer howard who is the twenty eighth overall prospect in baseball and certainly the phillies number. One or number two would be of interest for cleveland and having recently traded clemenger. They traded bauer two years ago. They're certainly looking to add people into that. Rotation in that pitching staff moving forward but again the phillies really. Don't have any. you know. Big league level arm. So potentially you could throw in the likes of roman quinn out in centerfield somebody who could come in and play right away. Adam hastily recently atop a picture. The phillies has kind of shown himself to be a fourth outfielder. Needs more at bats so he could be an option for the indians. But i think they're looking at potentially a bomb howard or a bryson stott who was a recent first round pick for the phillies a shortstop at a unlv. He's a major league baseball as eighty two overall prospect so he's a top five phillies prospect for sure so few throw adam hastily. Bryson stott you know. Mix in a francisco morales or another relief pitcher. The conversation is there for the indians and phillies to start having some trade dialogue. It's just a matter of what price are the phillies no longer willing to pay out bomb in howard and at that point you're going to have to put in start early and another top prospect arm to even have the conversation. Continue to the point. Where i think deal could be made. So we have the The yankees dodgers the phillies and mets. I believe are the top four options. But now you're starting to look into that second tier and a name. We always hear or you know people in the market loved it. Here is the cincinnati reds. People are saying that lindores could stay in state probably wouldn't even have to trade or changes driver's license if that were the option so what could the reds give up in a potential deal. I mean again. Infielder outfielder nick sensible a recent first round pick. The indians would love somebody like that they also have right handed pitcher hunter green who they could potentially dangle and hundred green was a top five pick a few years back high-velocity right handed pitcher just have some control issues. Some health issues is he's looking to get going but again green number two overall. He's said tommy. John already in his big league career in sensors atop ten prospect. So those two right. There is where the conversation starts and those two would be better than anybody else. I've read in regards to prospect combination so central. I would have to go if you could potentially get hundred green if you're not willing to give up hundred green if you're the reds you're looking at shortstop jose garcia to fill the shortstop void. He's six rated prospect for the reds or outfielder austin hendrick. Who's atop prospect on major league baseball's pool and it could get interesting from there so if the reds throw in hunter green i think that could make them the team to beat along with the nixon. So it's just a matter of if they'd be willing to put in all of that prospect and if that's what they're looking for here moving forward that would be certainly very very interesting so another team we're hearing is the la angels. The team out in la could put together an offer this one. I'm not sure as of the the level of everybody else we've discussed you know. They don't really have the depth in the prospect pool. But they're certainly looking to go for it here so i believe they could be an option. I mean brandon marsh jeremiah jackson at the top of the list followed by pitchers garrett stallings as an option for them to fill out that bullpen. There and cleveland so the angels. I don't think have the immunization to be able to hang with the big boys here when it comes to potential offers and then a few outside candidates three of them here that i've heard but haven't really looked into exactly what they'd have to give up but The blue jays suitor looking to get that super infield there with the other prospects shet vlad junior and everybody so they'd have to give up l. out in the outfield once again. And then you're looking at Alejandro kirk behind the dish. Their number six rated prospect. Kevin smith potentially up for a deal. But i don't think that would be enough to sway the indians to trade him just across the river there and keep him in state. Another team is the st louis cardinals. The cardinals are certainly going to be in on the conversation They would have to give up. Let's see tommy edman. Infielder outfielder big level harrison batter. And then you get to their their prospects johanna daviel potentially on hell run down but men that would certainly be a tough sell and the last team here. I've seen on the list. But i don't anticipate any true. Conversation is the atlanta braves. Potentially trying to make a move to get over the hump the team. That's won the nfl. The last three five and looking into the future the next three to five years staring at the dodgers and padres look into at another superstar to the mix to potentially again get over that hump and win the national league up. The yankees. dodgers of course are going to be in the conversation until until indoor is dealt. But i do like the mets phillies. I believe they have the most ambition to possibly get a deal done. But i do see the cincinnati reds as having the most ammunition and the most willingness to part with their prospects in potentially getting a deal so i would look at the reds is getting value out there on the gambling market for the trade market but ultimately i think that the new york mets should be the leader in the clubhouse. Everything that steve cohen has been communicating. Everything that he's been saying is that he's going to spend money. He's going to be pushing the envelope and in an off season where everybody's looking at economic pushback trying to cut pennies wherever they can to have an owner come in and essentially say the opposite. You know. hey we're going to spend we're going to go for it. I love this team. I love this city. You have to put them in the driver's seat for any of these big time. Free agents and trade pieces so that's a good transition here this real pause wrap it up segment number three because we're going to get into the latest free agency signings and then conversation around the big boys if there's any updates news notes and what's happening around the league sell we'll step aside here one last time for a word from one of our sponsors and one of our sister shows but we come back. We'll wrap things up today. Talking about mlb free agency who signed already and who's gonna go where stick around everyone. We'll be right back. Want to know the latest and soccer. That listened to the golden state media concepts soccer podcast from. Mls is the world of the premier league. We've got you covered the latest. Update the hottest matches and news on the league's top players. It's the golden state media concept soccer. Podcasts listen thanks again for listening and welcome back to the fourth and final segments of the mcc baseball podcast brought to you by the mc podcast network. We've had a great show for you today. Started out talking about theo epstein. What's next for him. After his decision to step down from the chicago cubs president of baseball operations. He had a salad nine year. Run with chicago three trips to the nfc s in of course ending that drought in two thousand sixteen. So jed hoyer takes over for him. He'll have some big decisions to make chris bryan. Baya's anthony rizzo and schwab all up here for arbitration slash free agency in a year. What do they do with those guys. And then what's next for theo. Who knows i think he ends up in the league office and then with an expansion team in the next couple of years thinking outside the box but within talked about mike. Clubbing cody bellinger. The latest on their injury and surgery with levinger having to undergo. Tommy john and missed the twenty twenty one season and then just last segment. I talked to you guys about potential trade candidates for francisco. Lynn door what the teams would have to give up and ultimately where they end up and that brings us here to the fourth and final segments. Where we're talking about free agency. A couple of guys have signed not too many out there and none of the big fish. But i did want to keep you guys updated on everything that's going on and it looks like there have been about ten players who have signed contracts for the twenty twenty one season already starting out with kevin gaas men and marcus stroman who accepted their one year. Eighteen point nine million dollar qualifying offer like we talked about last episode. So those guys are locked in here but a handful of others have signed. The mariners resigned starting pitcher kendall grave men for a one year. One point two five million dollar deal so he'll be back with the mariners next year as well. Josh harrison resigned as a second baseman with the nationals. He signed on a one year. One million dollar deal harrison was with the phillies in previous years has now latched on. What the nationals. And is looking to get one more year in washington moving forward. You have jose peraza who side a minor league deal with the mets. After his time in boston robbie ray signed a deal to return to the blue jays. After he was traded to toronto he signed a one year. Eight million dollar deal. So he'll be back in toronto next year and their rotation malik smith. He signed a minor league deal with the new york. Mets speedy centerfielder. Recently of the seattle mariners will now be with the mets next season on a minor league. Deal and we'll look to make that team and then the last couple of signings. The atlanta braves resigned. Josh tomlin a relief pitcher to a one year one million dollar deal and then they were busy. Adding a veteran to the rotation with cole hamels no longer under contract and he battled a bunch of injuries. Last year they left handed veteran in the rotation. Well atlanta clearly thought that they needed that same type of ingredient. They went out inside drew smiley. Formerly of the san francisco giants he was with the philadelphia phillies the year prior to that. But he signed a one year eleven million dollar deal with the atlanta braves and this This surprise me this number of eleven million dollars because everything we've heard from the market. Is that the top end. Talent is going to get their money but that second tier mid level low level. Free agent isn't going to see the dollars that they have seen in the past. Well i would've put through smiley firmly in that category. I would have put him as somebody get in two three four million dollars as a fill into the rotation after the rest of free agency kinda filters itself out and man eleven million dollars. I know it's one year in atlanta. They really want that left. Handed veteran pitcher in the rotation to help out with these kids. But fifteen years for coal or fifteen million for one year cole. Hamels last year and now drew smiley for one year. I just think that is a stretch for atlanta. Now it's a one year contract so no harm no foul. They're not tied into anything in the future. But again eleven million drew smiley if you're currently sitting on the free agent market as a player you're certainly us in that contract as leverage for yourself in what you're looking for here in the market moving forward and let's talk about the top free agents now wrapping things up here of the final ten minutes or so. There's a lot of mid level to your free agents. And i don't want to canada project or predict what they would get because based off like i said drew smiley. I'm going to be way off on those types of predictions or conversation. So let's jump into kind of like the top ten guys here going down the list in any order really. I mean you guys know the top five or so out there and then after that you know it certainly up for debate or conversation into which direction you're looking to go but The top guy on the list. We'll start out on the mound. Trevor bauer everybody knows the cy young award winner one seven three era this year. He only allowed five point. One hits per nine that best in the major leagues as well. So i see going to sign a one year deal and try to get paid next year when the pandemic you know rights itself in the money seems to be back where it is but you know honestly based on his age. I think he's looking at that kind of bridge deal. You know. i don't see the five million dollar yu darvish or excuse me the five year yu darvish or five year tanaka deal. That pitchers have been signing here over the past couple of years. I certainly don't see the garrett cole seven year deal. But i do see of that jake arrietta three year contract conversation certainly being hat and when you're looking at value it's anywhere from twenty five to thirty million dollars a year. Get up to possibly thirty five here over the next couple of years. So where does bauer put himself. I think he certainly looking at trying to get one hundred million dollars but if you look at that three year pact. That's really on the high end of what you're looking at getting. I think you're gonna look right around three years ninety million dollars potentially a fourth year option gets him up to you. Know one fifteen one twenty four times thirty type of conversation starter mounted go twenty five thirty thirty five and that's where you're looking at ninety million dollars over the course of three years. Now who's going to give him that type of money. I don't believe it will be the phillies. I know the dodgers and again the yankees. All the top guys will be in the conversation but again based on everything. We're hearing based on everything i'm reading. I think the new york. Mets are going to be at the top of the list. Because even after marcus stroman accepts his qualifying offer. That's only a one year commitment. So i don't think the the price tag over the course of two to three to four years will hinder steve cohen's aggressiveness and trying to go. After the top guy so does he go after lynn door. And bauer know that's a conversation. I'm not so sure. But i think just due to monetary concerns. You're looking at trevor bauer. Being the leader for the new york. Mets and again if they don't wanna trade and give up assets for lynn door and they're only giving up twenty five million bucks this year two. Trevor bauer the way. The contract is structured. They could be in conversation with these next two guys. I'm in the next to the top. Two bats on the market. Everybody as disgust is jt. Real mutel he's the the best catcher in baseball of course over the last three years. He's i in war. I made back to back all star teams and eighteen and nineteen. I had a really good offensive year. Here in twenty twenty in a shortened season throughout a major league high. Almost forty seven percent of base stealers. But you know offensively behind the dish and to be the best defensive catcher in baseball really kind of puts you in that standard level of outfield production and this is where a position in value from position. Become a conversation when offering. Jt rio mute so a contract because if you're paying him for his offense than you could spend that money more effectively elsewhere. Because if you're looking at george springer and real mutual offensively compared i believe. It's an edge to george springer now if you look at the entirety of the game calling the game. Genie pitching staff throwing out. Baserunners security behind the dish increases real mute value. Now now how much does it do that right. What is it potential. Deal that he's looking at and he's looking to try to get to that twenty five thirty million dollar a year. Let's see twenty. Three million per year was the salary held by joe mauer words of twenty five a year. I believe real mutya would jump on that to set the record for catching positions contracts. If you're looking at twenty five a year the conversation then becomes four five or six years and this is where the bidding more may start. Because i think you're going to have multiple teams in for jt. Rio mutoko at four years. One hundred million dollars. So do you get to five years. One twenty five to six in one fifty is that where teams are willing to go and then you know based on age in decline and t make makeup. Is this really the best avenue. If you're the philadelphia phillies. Are you really going to lock yourself in for five years for catcher behind the dish. I'm not so sure. And there are a couple of other options out there. I know wilson ramos for the mets. They're looking to upgrade over him. You got Gary sanchez on standing ground with the yankees. The yankees spin on jt. Real mutel person. Only once again. I think the new york. Mets should be seen as the leader in the clubhouse. I think they'd be willing to go to that five six year. Mark and that hundred and fifty million dollar kind of threshold. So i'd be looking at five years one forty for jd. If you're the mets six years one fifty if you want to limit you know the average annual value but still give him that top dollar which is what happened to kind of The bryce harper situation they added years to lower the yearly cost but certainly are now tied into the player even further. So if real mute does go into the mets bowers go into the mets. That leaves francisco lynn door. I think once again the reds or the outside leader there but next step we got george springer. And where does george springer end up. I certainly have the phillies directly in the conversation for george springer especially if they miss out on jt real. Till i think springer's looking for that twenty to twenty five million dollars a year as well. He'll be looking at four to five years. So you're looking at five one twenty five as kind of the baseline for springer him being an outfielder of course less wear and tear on the body and you know only thirty one years old. He certainly young enough to wear five years Doesn't seem to be like that will be out of You his career decline so to speak so five hundred twenty five five and one thirty. I think the phillies are the leader in the clubhouse for him but also hearing that the white sox could be involved and potentially the blue jays could be out there looking for some upgrades if they potentially make a move for lynn door and move on from some outfield help. They could replenish that by transition. In right to george springer and not having a lot of downtime so rounding out the next couple of free agents let's see. Dj lemay hugh. Where does he end up. He's looking at probably about twenty million a year. Three to four years for dj. Does he look at three at sixty year. Four at eighty. I think you're looking at closer to that. Four at eighty mark nelson. Who's paying the mayhew. I think his best fit is back with the yankees but if they make some moves. I some bigger fish i think. Of course the domino's continued to fall and we see him leave. New york next on the list is marcelo. I think he's right there in that conversation as well. He was right at that. Eighteen million dollar mark next year. He's looking for a raise. So you're looking at twenty to twenty five frozen so you're looking at three in seventy three and seventy five frozen yeah. I don't know if you want to go to that fourth year. But i think if you're the braves and what you saw offensively him in that lineup from the right side really could be a difference maker and i think you're looking to pull the trigger if you're the braves and bring back osuna next up on the list. Charlie morton is recent option was declined by the raise. He had a four seven. Four era in nine starts was obviously much better in the playoffs. So he'll be looking to go year to year. Let's see the. The race are rumored to be offering eight to twelve down from that fifteen but i think he could get fifteen to twenty from a lotta different contenders out there. On the market. I think the phillies would be interested. The yankees dodgers like. I said the race trying to bring him back that cardinals. Anybody who's in playoff consideration. Looking to add a veteran with the playoff pedigree of charlie martin is certainly going to be in conversation here so round and things out nelson cruz Looks like he'll be back with minnesota. They've been communicating back and forth justin turner. He looks to be back in la but if not he could potentially end up in washington a lot of people have made that connection and then the top relief pitcher liam hendriks. He had a fantastic year last year. One seven eighty ra. So it'll be in high demand a lot of people looking for relief help to phillies. But the dodgers name to To look at here as a potential move. I don't think they make any huge choices this off season so bringing him in on a short term deal i think could work but Lastly we have hung song. Kim who's coming over from korea. He's twenty five years old. He's been with the key womb heroes to ninety four over the last seven years one hundred and thirty three homers hundred and thirty four steals so does a little bit of everything offensively speed power and You know it is a heavy shortstop market here for free agency but adding kim to the mix you know he's looking at possibly getting you know eight ten million plus a posting fee so four years forty five million four years forty million for kim and a lot of those guys tend. End up on the west coast. So let's go. I don't know seattle. la san francisco. Somebody out there. I believe will add kim and add some pop into speed to their offense for twenty twenty one. So where do you guys think everybody ends up. Let me know in the comments here. Leva while you're rating in reviewing the podcast put your thoughts. Words lemay hugo bauer rio mute.
