"So the top team in terms of playoff odds increased since we last. Spoke the San Francisco giants riding a seven game winning streak right now they're up thirty three percentage points the Marlins who we kinda count it out maybe or it seemed like there run it. This was kind of flagging. They are twenty four percentage points since last week the cardinals are not only playing games but winning some of them and improving their playoff odds by twenty percentage points or twenty one since last year last week and the padres are up fifteen percent to a near. Loch at this point, the padres are about as close to assure thing they're eighteen and thirteen their playoff odds up to ninety four percent. I just want to say I, never stopped believing in the MARLINS. The marlins are in a weird spot because I I don't think any team is a powerhouse. The braves are the best, but they also have Max free to no other good starters at the moment. So I think the MARLINS are probably Not Going to stay in second place but it's not like they're just going to get hammered by the rest of the teams in that division. Interesting team here to me is the giants the biggest riser because. Now, they would be in the one eight matchup versus the dodgers and the dodgers. This year have an eighteen and five record against every other team and they're four and four verse the giants and I think maybe the most surprising onfield. Development this year for me has been the giants offense, which is incredible and I don't understand how. This is not for the yeah Mike Stamps, keep it. Even I look at these players now and I just don't understand how they have a top ten offense and runs per game. That's not even counting for ballpark adjustments and they're being carried by these anonymous hitters. It's very much like out of insulin move out of the thousand twelve giants playbook when they were led by guys like cody Ross and Andres, Torres and all those. cast-offs and I think the giants are one of the most fun in in the sport. Now, Bouwman has talked about how much fun they are. Watch brandon belt is hitting everything. So I, guess he's an accomplished player, but it's it's weird team but a team that is getting results. Joey Bart's up in the majors now. Yeah I did not expect the giants to be this good and I didn't expect them to be the fun I. Think the giants in the last couple of years have not only been not so good but have kind of been Anti Fund. I mean there just hasn't been a lot to really enjoy and other than kind of like the the remaining world champions in their twilight years, which has been sort of depressing in some. Ways but this team, all of a sudden is a lot of fun to watch and the fact that they came out of a series with the giants up as the the biggest risers for the week did not see that coming not sure if I see it continuing but I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Yeah. We'll see how they do if they can keep this up without being able to beat up on the dodgers all time. Teams they have a little harder time with. All right So we're just about any time so I will let you guys go. Thank Yous.

"They're down to eighteen point. Eight percent is to make the playoffs at all their essentially out of any other racer out of the division race and they're looking like longshots now for anything at thirteen and eighteen. So yeah they kind of just kicked the bucket basically about institute Zelin Merrill L. E. AN scratching Merrill, Kelly from a star because shoulder. Discomfort nothing really going their way. Yeah. So the the rest of the teams that were down big this week, the reds were down twenty six percentage points the nationals who wa Stephen Strasburg for the season down seventeen point three percentage points the rangers down thirteen point seven and the angels finding new ways to get on this losers list week. After week, they were down eleven point four percentage points and are now in single digits there five percent chits is to make the playoffs and even that seems optimistic at ten and twenty two. So that's maybe not surprising given their poor record but the nationals defending champions Losing Strasbourg their horse. Are In some trouble now I'm surprised the angels had that far to fall I know. I think the really strange part about the standings is not just the rollercoaster ride that teams like the diamondbacks have been on but the fact that in the National League in particular, the teams are bunched. So closely together that you can see these wide swings and still dream on a swing back in the right direction. The trade deadline is Monday I wrote about this for the site today it's unclear whether teams should want to trade players when they have such a close shot to make the playoffs the reds. Their odds fell twenty six percentage points over the last week they currently ranked fourteenth in the entire National League and record, and they're only two and a half games back of a playoff spot it takes one good serious on their back in it, and then you can dream on advancing pretty far in the playoffs with the rotation of gray and Castio and Bauer. So the reds problem is their offense which has scored I think twenty seventh they rank in baseball over the last few games they have. Been Shut out and then scored two runs to runs into runs, which is why they've fallen in the playoff odds because they've just lost a bunch of games in a row without scoring any runs but I could see a team like that I could see a team like the nationals having one good series and bouncing right back whereas the AL is just a completely different story where seven teams are basically locked into a playoff spot and there's only one one birth remaining. Yes. Anyone buying the nationals there eleven. Sixteen, they have about a one four chance of making the playoffs. Now, they have one of the tougher strengths of schedule remaining and they don't have Strasbourg. So anyone seeing a another comeback from a slow start which they pulled off last season. Yeah. I think it would all have to depend on. It would hinge on one. I think they're pitching death is I is maybe a little bit better than I would have expected going into the season. So they've got that going for them sodas playing the way is. The rest of the National League like. It's exactly what what Zach said that you need. That if this was the American league where there were actually more than two or three good teams we would we could write them off completely but I think the rest of the national. League's in a state that I don't trust anybody that the answer chasing enough to write them off completely. But. I'll tell you what if they make the playoffs from here You might as well parlay that with want so to winning the VP because it's GonNa take something special from him. Yeah. One team that I think really is making progress in that tougher Al Pennant race is the Toronto Blue Jays who were plus eighteen and a half. They were a team that I really written off They've Lost Boba shed they've Lost Neat Pearson at least for the time being they're seven and three in their last ten they're back five hundred they're back even Ron deferential I really want this I'll just be completely honest. I really want this team to make the playoffs I really want to watch them. Up against the the best in the American League unseat him be rewarded for some the town that they brought up. It's a fun team to watch. So I hope that I don't know that they're good but I hope that they're good. Yeah I agree and they're bright around the closest to a coin flip of any team right now they have fifty-six percent chance to make the playoffs according to fan graphs the only teams closer to fifty fifty believe it or not are the mets and the Phillies who have. Not had as good leverage is hundred percent that is exactly what I would have expected. Okay. Well, the Blue Jays are at five hundred and I agree with you, they are really entertaining and of course, Pearson was supposed to be sort of a savior for that rotation and that didn't really work out he came up and what impressive at times but struggled and then got hurt. So that's a a loss for them but the offenses really exciting and fun, and if they could just get more out of ladd who. Sort of keeps slipping down the rankings of exciting young blue jays hitters have been think of what we thought. He was going to be a year ago or at the beginning of the twenty nineteen season and look at what he has actually been, and it seems like you might have to make some changes because he stills kind of pounding the ball into the ground constantly. So if he could figure that out, that would be a big boost to them. But with you on them as an entertaining team, I'll give you the other big risers this week..

The white sox now that they're hitting four home runs a game they need to get no hit from their pitchers but that certainly helps yeah, he looked really great. He got thirty whiffs Abe leave which was I think the second most in a no hitter since nineteen ninety, no-one Ryan had thirty one in his last no hitter, which is pretty impressive in which he probably through like one hundred, nine, hundred. and. A lot of people pointed out that the opposition here was not the strategist and this was kind of a truly terrible pirates lineup that I think had a to twenty nine batting average coming into the game. There are a lot of guys who had seasonal averages under two hundred in that lineup. But Gee, we'd always obviously really good. So it's not as if he could only do this against a poor lineup, it's just that when you're talking about the difference between zero hits being historic and one hit just be Ho. Great Start obviously that helps but he's religion is. Rolling my eyes hat and he has no hit stuff as they say against any in any given day. Yeah. I'm I'm not that sympathetic to the bad lineup. So it doesn't count argument. This is still a major league lineup even campaigner Pittsburgh Cards. Accounts, you know there's a story mind going up tomorrow in fact that in which I referenced the Best Pitch Game I've ever seen and the victims in in that game are the twenty thirteen astros. So clearly, I don't believe. The the point is this is still a major league lineup. It still counts still there's still that little room for error as I think the last out of the game illustrate because I was absolutely tagged right off the Bat I thought that that was going to. Fall until the camera turned around and saw angle standing right there. So you're. Still Luigia Leo who was. In later, this pacing around the Dugout like a Kid who had to pee with so much nervous energy I'm really glad that for everybody involved that that they got that done. All. Right. So that brings us to what we'll see if Lucas leader shows up in this next segment this was Zach's idea to do. midseason award. So all three of US put in mock ballots, three players so not expansive as normal MVP or Siona ballot would be Zach did all the math because he's the only one we trust to do all the math and and so here are midseason awards. I just want to say first of all, I can't believe the season's like. Far enough into it, we're doing these by. where it what forty eight percent I think of scheduled games and not every game will be played presumably. So we really are just right at the halfway mark. Yeah and It leads to some strange considerations like I'm not sure how you approached your ballots but for something like the MVP erases didn't really look at war like I would at the end of a normal season because I just don't trust the defensive data within a month. So I think it's hard to. It's hard to know first of all, how to distinguish between players where at the top of the League, it's like one guy has one point, nine war and one guy has one point seven were and that's not much of a difference anyway. But especially when you take into account all the small sample. The the small sample issues with the data we have so far I think it made for more difficult selection process than I. Typically have at the end of the season just gotTa go with your gut, the eye test. For that, that's just one of many reasons why this was such a weird exercise. I mean this is a Lou Bob had a some ridiculous defensive war over twenty games or however much he played and The other thing is obviously not all these players to play the same number of game. So Paul Goldschmidt up there in a lot of the the rate hidden categories, but he's only the cardinals only played like eleven or twelve games however many they have. So it's It's hard to judge that against a player who's played twenty eight or thirty or somebody like Bryce Harper whose missed a few games but is still up there in some of these heading category. So let's start with VP and I'm just GONNA. Go around the Horn Totti's i. t's Totti's I. Yes. No? No. Okay. MOOKIE BETTS I and again it's the difference assists small Zach you wrote about how were was just not going to be helpful for awards and distinguishing between players before the season started and I think the difference between Bets and Something, like point two wins roughly but bets was my preseason pick. So maybe I'm biased toward having that be proved correct. But also he's just been really excellent and you know he's Scott Eleven homers. He's got speed. He has his usual defense and yet we may not trust defensive stats small samples but we know what will you bet is as a defender and as far as I've seen, he has continued to be that. So I trust that evaluation and really there roughly interchangeable and at least I made it not unanimous. So we have a second name to talk about but Totti's was second on my list. Yes. So if you look at the consensus or the collection of our votes, the three of us and wonderful producer Bobby, we have Totti's first place bet second-place Bryce Harper third and others receiving votes were Yastrzembsky from the giants and Soto from the nationals. And this is a great example make of what you were talking about because I think on a per plate appearance basis Soto has been the best player in the National League so far. Has By far the best rate line I think he just hasn't played enough. So I put him third on my listen I could easily see him sending to I by the end of the year, but he's had basically half as many at bats as players like bets and Totti's so I think you guys didn't even put him on your ballot. And that was exactly the reason why it wouldn't. Like? Exactly. Like you said, it wouldn't surprise be at all. If he comes comes here in the second half and wins, this thing comes out to be the clear MVP just. When I I am sort.

"But what's really concerning is just who's on the team right now, it's just not a strong rotation yet. They've just been. I. Mean, even a mets just been absolutely beating them up and it's it's not just the star rotation like they've been sort of up and down offensively, and they struggled to to get into to Michael, Waka and. It's I. Just I just have a hard time particularly considering the razor playing. Well, bluejays are playing well at. That's a straw. That's an uphill climb even with six teams in the playoffs. Yeah. I think it's pretty revealing that when I was speaking off the cuff earlier about the teams that would be best suited to sneak into the seven and eight spots in the AL, I listened teams like the Blue Jays and white sox. The White Sox have not been off to a good start. They have pitching problems of. Of their own, but I could see them turning it around a lot easier than the red sox who given the state of the rotation are basically going to be starting every game down two or three, two, two zero. Just because those pitchers I mean I think the red sox rotation search only through five games right now, but they've accumulative era of seven point, four five and that's not where you want to be. Well, if they're you know, they're not GONNA be competitive this year, they got a trade Jackie Bradley. Before they lose him to free agency for nothing that appears to be the logic for all their. All Star outfielder. So. Right. Here's a one team that I am optimistic about Towards the end from now, until the end of the season, and that is this ringer MLB crew Thanks fell for for joining me. We're coming up on an hour. So I think it's it's time to wrap things up. That'll do it for this week's addition, the MLB show. Thanks to Bennett, Zach?

"Has the right about every move is is good for the person who's on mlb trade rumors that underscores this we get to yes that's the closest we get to what you were describing where we had i you know like eight or nine people writing at the same time covering different angles yes yeah that's a lot of fun and and that it's it could happen more now the you have this single trade deadline and everything has to be done by july thirty first i think that could make things more exciting but be off season is i think when you want more of that excitement when you want to try to get at least a little bit of the juice the dmv is generating here and if you're not gonna get it with twitter drama hen guys having public beef then it'd be nice if you could get it west moves being made in the winter meetings actually being a time way apps are made as opposed to just a time when moves are discussed and then people talk about the luxury tax and you know whether they can actually afford it and maybe we'll just wait until february or will promote a prospect who doesn't make any money and will sign some guy in will use these new would advance developmental techniques it's the bacon better i mean i think all of these factors are leading to less emphasis on free agents except when you get these big bryce harper manny machado type free agent which is rare in mlb sort of squandered that from it attention getting respective this past last winter they they have to they took a slam dunk like needle moving positive story in just and turn it into a negative referendum on urges they turned it into a referendum on on the state of competitiveness in the game right date came back back against the end you know you brought this up this is the reason right the the the reason is the major league baseball doesn't have a salary cap and he nb eight guys and looking at the way free agency works in both leagues you would think the exact opposite is in a there is a you know most mbh teams because there's a salary for most mb eighteens they'll spend the cat in the they'll figure out creative ways to get around it because it's a soft soft cap and philippe worried about the luxury tax but this doesn't get it in the way of the golden state warriors paying for superstars ted you know they'll pay the luxury tax if that ends in five finals bersin around that even like the the worst hedge fund de vampire campari owners in in the sport for the most part they they're willing to spend a win and major league owners realized that it's more profitable to spend a hundred million dollars on payroll fern eighty five win team then it is just spent a hundred eighty million dollars on payroll four ninety one team yeah we talked about that calculus yeah and i am sorry that like that i'm i'm fucking preaching again i this is not fun i wish everybody would just try to win but that's unfortunately fortunately not the world we're living in this you know we could we we couldn't have this like we couldn't have bnb eight that year just the structure of the league the max contracts that makes a difference in terms of you know and just like the the the a culture of nbc players have more agency than the major league players do just because of the the structure of the game and you know maybe there is something to baseball players get their individual lives in a beat out of the amid at a young gauge end but all of this like the reason there are no free agents because everybody's signing under market a contract and stuff like this is all other piece it state winning still matters in basketball and it does it to a large extent from ownership level which is where you know that commitment to winning from ownership level is what moves the needle and free agency that just doesn't exist in baseball anymore players wanna win front office people wanna win coaches wanna and owners i think they'd like to win if they could but it's not it's not priority one it's not errative because they're making a lot.

"You just go out and and pay good players what they're worth and those good players will usually come through for you. I think that's going to end up being a smart place that teams can can invest in you know, Lance Lynn is certainly that kind of player. I think if he ends up on the as then you, and I might have to go off and start another podcast just about the Oakland A's and and landslide enhance. Over to somebody else. Look forward to it. Yeah. All right. Bryce harper. Who is the number one free agent on the MLB trade rumors board. Why don't you go? I I I went a little off aboard with us. So Bryce Harper. I think is I would put him as a second messed fridge and in this class if I were running a team everyone else neutral, I would pick Machado ahead of him. They're basically the same age. They're you know, Harper might be a slightly better hitter. But I think Machado's defensive value really dwarfs what Harper can bring on that side. And if you look at Harper's career he had that MVP season where he was by trout's equal. But he hasn't lived up to like anywhere close to that any other season. I think is still very good. He's still very young which is why he's going to get a huge contract. But he's not the slam dunk free agent. He looked you know, just a year or two ago. I think from the teams that are interested in him. They might not have the budget for it at this point because they were like trying to trade away pieces just. To afford Cole hamels as option, but I think Harper would fit well with the cubs to give them another really powerful middle of the order bat with Bryant and Rizzo and Baya's I think for a lot of last season even some of the year before the cubs seemed one player short. And while a lot of that might be with pitching. I think Harper obviously would help out any team. And while the budget might be an issue like come on the cubs. You're printing hundreds of millions of dollars every year you can afford Bryce Harper. And it'll be okay..

"He inspires such confidence that the fielders are just on their game behind him. Whatever it is you're never going to really eliminate every possible comp. Locating factors. So you have to do the best you can. And I think we're kind of in this in between space right now where we know that we can do better than this because we have stat cast. We have the angle and the bedded ball of the angle and the speed of every bad at ball. And in theory, we should be able to build that into if not a perfect defensive system, at least one that is a much closer approximation of perfect than the zone based ones that we've been using from, you know, a decade ago up until now. And right now we haven't gotten to the point yet where those systems are fully implemented yet. And so we know there's something better, but we are still making do with something worse because it's what we've had. That's exactly where I wanted to go. And that the last big media maybe their odds and ends. We can pick up after this, but this is the last big point I wanted to make. I think we're, we're at a point where the framework of zone based offensive, defensive metrics is obsolete. It just doesn't first of all up and. Until stack Castrilli. There is a robust public sabermetrics movement where a lot of the cutting edge research was done at places like baseball perspectives or by freelancers or people with no affiliation whatsoever. Because all of the data was publicly available either in box scores were on tape, like what baseball info solutions did. And I don't know if this is still what they do, but I have friends who work there and this is how it works. Then they split the field up into a certain number of zones. And for every batted ball, they've tracked where the the zone where the veal or made the play and what kind of play was something like eighty one different types of good or bad play, and they fed all that into it. That was the data that they collected and it's essentially just the eye tests codified and you can't do that anymore. Because when all you needed was tape or all you needed was box score data, I then anybody could do it given enough time and commitment and resources. Now you need the. Actual stat, casts, you need actual tracking data, and we don't all have access to that. And it's just been this along with a lot of the a lot of the, the minds your Tom Tango's, a one of the biggest example examples of this. A lot of the biggest minds in public sabermetrics have gone to work for teams of the league. So not only a little bit of brain drain, but we don't have access to the state of the art data. The teams are using and the way that major league baseball and MLB a. m. our packaging, this the stuff you see from stack cast like it's fun, but they're making they're making trivia not making science, you know, like the catch, probably they're all sorts of of ways that the state is getting used and packaged, and you know to to illustrate how a cool looking play, you know, how difficult was his play actually to make it, it's it's made in anecdotes. And yeah, plural of anecdote is not data, and so they've taken the approach of rolling. It out in bits and pieces. I think which from an entertainment and spectator and marketing perspective make sense. But at times can be frustrating because you kind of want them to just dump the finished product on you and say, we've accounted for everything, and here's what everyone's were. I'd honestly settle for not even the finished product. I'd settle for the data. I mean that's or that. And that's, that's the difference between. So if you look at it as the difference between saber, you know, baseball is commerce. Baseball is a television program. Essentially, it's an entertainment product. It's a for profit major league baseball, a four profit entertainment company, and.
