"Online in real time. All that's there for you, because rocket can Baseball chatter. That's what we need, and we got the right guy for you. Yeah, we got the right guy We got on MLB and he's an insider stuff ever Joins us? Says he often does talk little baseball. Mr Everett has the Friday night so far. The Friday night. This good man, It's good to hear from you. Yeah, well, it's nice to have a little reunited, and it feels so nice. Yeah, there you go on. We have a little baseball talk about. We got a little baseball pizzas and her peaches and herb. Um, Yeah, We got baseball because we've got baseball. Everyone's a little nervous. I think three strikes. You're out Marlins cardinals. If we get one more does the baseball adage. Hold up? Where are you right now? In your thoughts about What would happen if another team went through the Marlin Cardinal debacle. I don't think it would go that route. I don't think they would shut it down. I do think that there's gonna be a lot of double headers, and I think there's you know, a very truncated schedule. No, just for the record. I was against it from the start. I think that I worry about all non isolated, non bubble sports, You know? I mean, I worry about them. I'm very hopeful for the NFL. Although Doctor. Doctor. I don't know how it happens. But okay, let's give him a chance to see him. Try. This was hodgepodge because You know, the players are going wherever the hell they want, doing whatever they want, seeing whoever they want, and the only time they're respecting the protocols are when they're actually in the clubhouse or in the tunnel. But if you've noticed if you've watched the game what players are sitting in the tented area behind the dugout, nobody those dugouts are completely filled. So there's none of that. The first baseman Don't wear mask there, spitting all over the place. And when you hit home runs most of the time you're getting high five. And so if you go to the ballpark, and you test negative doesn't mean you don't have it. And you're Not social distancing from anybody. You're all over your teammates. So if there's one case, there's a good at sex. That's the fear and that's my fear for the NFL. That's certainly college but you know, college is different and the circumstances for the baseball situation Is just I don't know how to stop it, because even if players are not going to clubs and not going out, not partying, and not on tinder if they're not doing all that Are they totally isolated? Not really. No, absolutely not. And it is. I mean, I think that your common sense legitimate concern is everyone's and you didn't want them to not do anything you want to try. Because because not trying is is just is just that and it doesn't give you any opportunity. But let me let me put a caveat on that. I did not want this season to start what I wanted. What? Because I'm worried about the long term viability of the sport. And I didn't think this hodgepodge year was that essential. I thought, you know if you think about it. Baseball started a week before the N B A in the NHL. If we didn't have the baseball season, we've survived because I hear sports updates, impact? No, this is a ton of stuff in them. So we have sports back the problem that I thought Was the collective bargaining agreement that expires at the end of next year. And what I would have done in the NHL stole my thunder, because what the NHL has been doing this whole this whole time. Not only seeing a big old screw you to the America by moving their bubbles from Pittsburgh, Columbus in Vegas. Toronto in Edmonton, But they have four years of labor peace extended on two more years so they will have labor peace till 2027. And baseball. If you thought people were mad when they were fighting over the coded plan, just wait till we get everything back and you have a chance for full stadiums and there's a wa lock at our strike. So what I thought they should have done was just bag this season blaming on Cove it yes, people would have been mad, but they wouldn't have been mad with dumb PR that those two sides did. And then just locked themselves in a room quarantine for 14 days and don't come out until you have a labor deal, and they could have done that. And they didn't know you're absolutely right. And I think probably You knew it now, But I think in retrospect, you'll be proven right about that. I was just talking earlier about the sham of the postseason that they put together and throughout on Ah You know, Friday afternoon news dump. That was that was because the networks were willing to pay them extra cash. And remember, the owner's lied through their teeth when they said they were all broke, and I'm sorry, I didn't mean to cut you off. The the owner came out. And you know the Cubs owner and the Cardinals owner with the two most egregious when they were saying, We're hemorrhaging money, I was like, Well, let's look at your books You want to see 2019 2018 27 26. You want to go back? And you know you have a slush fund. Use it, And that was that was my argument and what I wanted the labor deal to reflect was the philosophy changes. You know what's the value of a starting pitcher? How have we changed how we take in the metric of defense out of how we evaluate players like those are things? The players and owners have to figure out and they didn't Now they're going to cry even more poverty because there's a least 10 teams that are losing money because you're playing. And that's just going to make the negotiation even worse. Yeah, You're right about that, because of the not the lack of fans, etcetera. Never all the insular income that having people moving around brings in the ballpark so that there's no question about that. And The other, You know, agree. Just think about it is that could come back to bite him is what we've seen the NHL early on with some of these upsets. Probably not great for the league to not have Pittsburgh and and Edmund 10 if they don't come back against Chicago tonight, and Nashville, not in the postseason anymore before it even gets started with these short thing, Whatever. You know what if the one seeds in this Don't be two out of three, you get home field, But there's no fans advantage here. Yeah. What if what if the Dodgers of the Yankees and a couple they lose in those two out of three's And they finished first or second, and now you just got a bunch of teams going at each other. And people didn't believe in the season anyway..

Philadelphia Phillies beat New York Yankees 11-7 at home to open twin bill

"The Yankees allowing eleven runs illusion, the opener, the double header with the phillies yesterday, and then they ran into Aaron Nola. In the NIGHTCAP, he gave them all sorts of trouble, but eventually, they got into the Philadelphia both another three to pitch to talk. Line. In the right field, that survey? That's GonNa find the gap. Stanton will score. Harper gets back in talk man stops at second. So a rig double for Mike Talk in the Yankees take a two one lead, ricky. Ricardo. seventh-inning call here on the fan I will say one of the things I like about the no fans is getting to hear the dugout. Big Hits. It sounds like you're at a high school game in central New Jersey on a Wednesday afternoon. He's guys are getting all pumped up there on the bench on the balls, put in play, and you can hear some of that on the broadcast or shallow with an RBI single. He was two for three and the bullpen closed out a three one victories. They split the twin bull, the twin bill rather at Citizens Bank I. Seven inning experience for Aaron. Boone Company? What did he think about? About the first one was too short, and then this one was just right. Make sense considering they dropped the opener before the seventh inning rally Nola struck out twelve over six innings. But the Yankee pitchers kept them in the game as well. Jonathan Isaac. Open, he got seven outs followed by Avalon. Green Auto Vino in Britain the latter earning his fifth save Luke void homered in the second. His Fourth of the season reading in all situations doesn't matter who's pitching what game where we're at at homer. Here on the West Coast. It's anytime. It doesn't matter Ohio three. Oh. Oh, to whatever you know guys can always do damage. We're looking to do damage competition about every situation there the savages in the box Gary Sanchez not so much right now over to two more strikeouts, the batting average down to seventy four, and then rubbing salt in the moon, he gets drilled in the elbows.

"Nice job by the energy. Also far yeah. That's fair, But that's about as fair as you could get. Because I have a long way to go. The end stuff. I don't even you know, I can't even I just I almost just want the place to start because I'm It's such a strange league anyway, where we know the team with the best players almost always wins. We know the top seeds are really the best teams and They generally proved that in the postseason and you can look it up if they say so. Just sort of want to get to it a little bit and get their healthy. It's hard to get back into the day to day of the regular season. Um I don't know why I just sort of is for me. Ah, maybe this week because I've had noticed because of the tropical storm, but I've had a hard time assimilating back into NBA regular season play. And the important summit and look, I see it all the time. And I want to say this about baseball before we go too long, and we're going to talk to Um Mike coming up in That's right step. We're having stuff every one. A top of the hour from Our MLB insider stuff worked all over the place in the in the game of baseball. Ah! Yankee sat judge and somebody else? Yes, Long May you maybe both on the same day and lost by one run yesterday. There is no no. Zero Incentive right now to finish first. You know, we're just watching this. NHL playoffs and all these upsets in three out of five. These will be two out of three's With a good pitcher against you in Game one. If you don't win Game one. You've gotta win both games. I don't care who you are. You're gonna win two games in a row. At home with no fans is not exactly a great advantage. Hold thing is a sham, and it's a It's one of the great shams of all time. It was a Friday afternoon news dump. Where they announced Oh, by the way. I'm going to let 16 teams in and we're going to Playing two out of three. And the top four seeds will Play at home for all of those games. Oh, by the way, there's no fans. And that will be enough advantage for them. Man. I mean, What a sham and I would love I would love for this. The backfire on them. So that they were in a position where Some of the poorer teams advanced and some of the real big market teams. Were eliminated so they would never try to pull this on us again. Our really hope. That that happens in a way to dissuade them from ever doing this again. This just dumb. I mean, when you're going to play 162 game season, and that's what they want to play. You cannot. Then. Give home field advantage and make it seem like that's enough. That's enough of a reward for winning. For having the best record in baseball or the best record in your league. One team will have won. The other team will have both. We'll have the best record their league and in baseball. And they will still have to play a two out of three against an eight seed and the on ly advantage they'll have is flying at home. And who knows how healthy they'll be, then? So my point is a lot of these major league teams have figured this out. The last thing the Yankees need to do is finish first. I mean, there is no upside to finishing first. It is. It is a pat on the back. And where'd you finish again? It is. It is gone before you can even save a writ. You know, it's ah, It's three licks to the center of the Tootsie roll pop for that, So I hope that this is a one time pandemic thing, and I do understand the mindset of people. That if you let them do this once Now they're going to put a runner on second base for all the games in the 10th inning, right? I even after this season ends, they're going to use the pandemic as an excuse, and then That will be that I understand that fear I do. And time will tell if it comes true. But I sure hope that they don't do this one thing..

Two undefeated bubble teams. Let's check that one out in the regular season. The way we were doing that we were doing that for the scrimmages. I was watching that Like we were still excited. What did you What did you make of it? All the overs early because I talk to you about this and how I thought the shooting would be off because it's an empty arena. I did not. I did not foresee them. Putting up curtains or drapes or whatever you want to say, which was a really good idea. I mean, it makes it feel like it enclosed space, and it makes your depth perception more normal. It's not going to be off. I didn't realize that wasn't something even considered. I decided to be a normal little arena and they'd be tough to shoot. But Boy these totals. It's a It's almost tempting to take unders now because they make them so high, but it seems like every game Each team has 1/4 where they put up 38 37. I mean the shooting's been Been much better than I could have anticipated. It's amazing, right. It's so much fun and the players have said like The shooting is better because of the death perception because of the way that the court is constructed, and because they're sort of that 40 50 Rosa fan and though I do think you're seeing that, and I think you're also seeing like These games were getting out of control based on who's playing and sort of very big runs and coaches deciding pretty quickly if they're already sort of been good position, whether or not I'm gonna have their players stick around.

Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter: COVID-19 Outbreak Happened Because Players ‘Let Their Guard Down’

"The cardinals of the latest team to suffer a corona virus outbreak resulting in their four game series in Detroit being postponed the I. of course, was the Marlins. Here's Derek jeeter their man in charge describing how his players behaved before all this happened. Oil. Down to on this particular trip was. Guys were around each other got relaxed in. Let Their guard down. There were getting together in groups. They weren't wear masks as as they should have been warned social distancing of the entire traveling party is responsible for not following. The Protocols has instructed that that includes staffs, players. Everyone is seen seen the impact. They've seen their teammates, you'd sick. As I bring the Jeff Passan and Jessica does in Jeeter did go on to say, I think this is important that he had seen as we all have people suggesting that when they were in Atlanta, maybe the guys went out to bars and clubs and all of that strongly refuted that notion he was saying, yes, they got lax in some of their protocols, but it wasn't like they were out there doing things that were like super erase. I just thought that was important to get in. That said Jeff, what does the League's response to the Marlins, and now the cardinals outbreaks tell us about what we should expect for the remainder of this season. Greenie tells us that Major. League Baseball is saying damn the torpedoes full speed ahead, we are going to play through outbreaks and we saw that with the marlins and we're seeing that now with the cardinals, seven players on the cardinals have covid nineteen six staff members as well. Those thirteen people have been sent back to Saint Louis Right now is the cardinals trying to figure out what exactly they are going to do. They played only five games, this season Greeny, and yet the fact that they're missing potentially at least another four games possibly another week of games on top of that. MLB says, okay. This is this is reality if we want to put a baseball season on traveling around the country in two thousand twenty and it is a reality that they are embracing in full because at this point, if there's going to be baseball Greenie they really don't have another choice Jessica. What do you think? I think that honestly, this is something that's going. We're going to see it again in another team I hate saying that, but you get one player and that's what jumps out to me. So much is now seen it with two teams in a week or one player has it, and then the next thing you know you blink and overnight five, six, seven players get it, and I think even talking with, Mike, Chill, the cardinals manager everyone realizing how quickly this can spread and that's something i. feel.

MLB commissioner confident league will get through season

"What happened with the Marlins in Philadelphia was just a reminder of how fragile this season is. So here we are. Three games in there's a crisis in Major League Baseball is trying to stage a season in the middle of an escalating prices. We both agree. If it expands, you've got to stop in a country that obviously hasn't been able to corral Corona virus. Any little. One thing consent this season spiraling. It doesn't look good. But MLB commissioner Rob Manfred telling our Karl Ravech there is no reason to quit. Now we are playing, he said. The players need to be better. And I am not a quitter. In general. Manford confident his sport can get through the regular season and postseason without being stopped because he also cautions that there's a chance that not every team might play all 60 games as winning percentage could be used. To determine playoff teams. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless buster, only ESPN MLB Insider on Darien, Mel, There was really discouragement, you know, after what happened the Marlins last weekend Jeff Passan reporting about the frank conversation between Rob Manfred and Tony Clark. That happened yesterday. And then the news this morning that more cardinals tested positive the dominoes keep falling in the wrong direction. I just did, SportsCenter said. You know if Major League Baseball is a boxer, they just keep taking body blows. And it's some point. Yeah, it's just going to become too much. You think Keith Overman just report a little while ago that MLB is reached out to their broadcast partners and basically told him you need to prepare alternate programming for the week ahead, So yeah, very discouraging, and I got to tell you there's there's a lot of frustration at the team level with people feeling like that, while for the most part There are a lot of players trying to make it work front office is trying to make it work that in some cases that behavior just did not change in a way that was going to best protect all the players. They thought it was a Hail Mary All along, you know the thought was is that there could be some positive tests. And if there was that there could be some isolation. But for example, the major league Baseball testing has been every other day. Well, what happens if a player is infected? The day after he gets tested, and then he's around his teammates. The lag in the test results, which Sean do little. The national spoke to right off the bat where there was concerned that you know with the results just don't come back fast enough to do the isolation in the contact tracing that would be necessary to hold it down Those air reasons why, at the outset of this thing, there was a lot of skepticism that they could actually make it

"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?

"Blow, and welcome to the ringer. MLB show. My name is Michael Bowman and I'm a staff writer at the ringer joining me today is ringer staff writers that cram say hello, Zack howdy. and Ringer staff writer and certified Williams asked to do Hater Ben, Mr Schalck, Lindbergh Salo Ben Hello Guys. We have baseball this week. SAURAV. For the time being I guess So this is. What I think was was actually a really exciting first couple of days of action has been. I we should have dominated in the in the news by the fact that we have a coronavirus outbreak on the Miami marlins that didn't take long Zach. No and I think it's not the best omen for the rest of the season. As you say, we have baseball for now and we will talk I'm sure at length about whether the baseball should continue. But even if it does, I, think the fact that we lasted all of three days of the season before there was an outbreak is not a great omen for how the rest of the next three months might go. You'd in this age of a very heavy handed. heavy-handed. Omens. This is. This is up there is you know. I Ran, I said I actually don't disagree with them that we were GonNa get positive tests at some point just as such was the the nature of the model for the season, but even A ritual pessimist like myself. I'd I'd imagine it would be the severe this quickly. Yeah. An of trying to spin this positive way possible, and they've essentially said, well, this isn't surprising. We expected this to happen which in a way. Really, if you expect there to be outbreaks big enough to take out a team at one time, then maybe you shouldn't have even preceded with the season. In the first place. I almost feel more charitable towards them. If they had convinced themselves that this wouldn't happen that they could stop this. So evidently, they were banking on this happening and still went ahead with it, and the question is, can they prevent it in the future dodgers president? Stan Kasten came out in sort of spun this as a learning experience and hey, it happened. Happened early, and now we can learn from this and prevent it from happening again. But I think there's a lot of uncertainty about whether the fact that this came. So early means that, okay. We got this out of the way, and now we can revamp by protocols and we can change our behavior and we can prevent it from happening again or just wealth. It took a few. Few days for this to happen, and it's going to keep happening until every other team has caught the coronavirus and is baby temporarily resistant to it. So I think really it comes down to. Well, how did they get it and we don't know right now how this outbreak started, and in a way we might never know whether it was something to do with the players not. Not. Adhering. To the protocols or just the fact that there's coronavirus everywhere and the marlins are playing a hotspot although they weren't in one when they contracted the in fact, we don't know that this is part of the problem for not. Yeah. We usually period. So long right. They hadn't yet come home to play and they had tested negative throughout summer camp, but again, yes, we don't. Don't know exactly when this happened or how this happened and you can't. No, you can't completely prevent any possible vector for this. So if they're looking at it saying, well, we're serious now about these protocols, you know we were high fiving before, but now we're really not going to high five which by the way, it seems like people are still kind of congregating in thing but if If the only plan is like okay. Now, we'll actually stick to the measures that we were supposed to be sticking before that doesn't seem all that encouraging, and it seems like there's likely hood that this could keep happening and look how disruptive it's been. We have one team that has to take this whole week off, and if anything maybe to be responsible should probably be taking even. Even longer off, and then that signed that sort of side tracks, a handful of other teams because their opponents can't play or they have to reschedule other teams so that they can keep playing some in the interim, and again, that's just with one team having a big outbreak. So if you have multiple teams with clusters at the same time I'm not sure how you could continue. Because ben seems to have taken the fact that I emailed him a rundown for today's show as an invitation to read the entire rundown. Right off the top we're going to backtrack a little bit sorta. Take this point by point. Then get into those issues because if Ben, what you raised about did they expect this what? What does this mean going forward? What did they learn? Did they actually learn anything these are. There are almost no other issues which considering some of the other stuff that crack cropped up this weekend like I don't like saying that without if they don't solve this problem than nothing else really matters. So let's go through a quick time on will sort of take these the effects point-by-point. So marlins braves played an exhibition game last Wednesday before the season started tyler flowers and Travis Star. No. The braves too. Catchers were yanked from the lineup showing symptoms of for opening day by condolences to to ban on tyler flowers getting sick and by Sunday after the Marlins have play two games against the phillies. Four marlins players test positive including Jose Rainha. The scheduled starting pitcher they scratch those flyers on Sunday and decide to quarantine those players in a hotel Philadelphia by Tuesday as a numbers continue to roll in that number's up to fifteen players plus two others in the traveling party as of recording late Wednesday morning we don't have any more information about further test numbers from the Marlins or or from the phillies.

"The other thing is is he playing against like normal teams or the Edmund in clones playing player clone bryce Harper clones the trout clothes the Otani clones that brings us to part two which is if you had to fill a whole team's roster with one player like the Lebron argument in basketball who would it be and I guess why yes so there is a time an in space where like every time Noah syndergaard or Madison bumgarner would hit a home run people would say this and it was like the most universally personally acknowledged like the Madison Bumgarner team Madison bumgarner would be a team of x number of other players and it was like the most universally acknowledged baseball accepted baseball thing that was so wrong because you don't just have to be able to pitch in hit you have to be able to catch any after able play shortstop and so so the only the only person that I can think of is in the major leagues right now who is done all those things and also hit at an elite level is buster. Posey who was a shortstop until like a sophomore or junior year Florida state where he was also briefly the closer like. I don't think he'd be a good Major League pitcher but I think I would trust you. You know he'd probably be in the top ten percent position players in terms of pitching on he was also an excellent defensive catcher and in his prime could help that any position listen elsewhere on the field and you know. I don't know if he's passed. It's possible he stole the answer but if he's you know he's getting up there in age. Well God he's almost exactly to the day the same age I am so the fact that he's getting old is is a real bad for me but I guess writers writer's age better than catchers. He's he's past his prime and so. I don't know if he's still the answer. I think you assume that whoever this is this gets you you get to those. Three clones have an off season to learn how to catch you. Don't necessarily have to pick a catcher in which case. Shohei ohtani feels feels like an obvious. Answer is the dancer. Yeah I think Andrew Jackson Simmons is the dark horse for this. I think he would adapt catching better than Otani. I think you're up the middle defense defense or I guess your defense everywhere would be so good that it wouldn't matter if pitcher Anderson Simmons who was ninety seven off the mound in college let Awada Balls get an apply but I also think like picking Otani Sorta doesn't feel like it's within the spirit of the question no so yeah I I. I think it's possible that the answer is still buster Posey. Maybe the answer somebody like. I was GONNA say like you could try. Jd Davis but like maybe you could teach to catch but you definitely couldn't teach them to play shortstop. so maybe that's the maybe Ramon Morio you know. Jd Davis is a tough one. I was actually getting ready to say Raimondo despite hype a little bit he can. I mean he's hit over. A hundred multiple multiple throws from now field. I think he could probably hit mid to upper nineties from the mount if he had an off season to kind of get that that arm motion correct so yeah he he's about toys either yeah I I don't. I don't know like the you know there are other guys like our mookie betts just like not just such a good athlete but like so so so athletic in that Andrew Hilton Simmons like Body Control Way that I'm certain you could teach him to do almost anything but like absent essentially as in a record as a college pitcher I if we're choosing. I hesitate to if we're just choosing a Tuesday outfielder you can teach to do anything and the answer would be Mike. Trout though I think pitcher by track gives up a lot of runs and I think catcher my trout. Let's up a lot of passed balls well. I don't know I feel like if if he has an entire off season. He's pretty athletic. He's squatty enough to get down. There was the last whose last Major League shortstop whose neck was wider than his head. That's the big thing with Mike Trout and honestly this is a big thing with Otani and that's why like I don't think that I just might be kind of like a little big ungainly and I know the straight line speeds great but I have a hard time managing him catching her playing shortstop and the same for trout. I can see Chapman and Aaron auto catching so maybe they're not bad answers yeah. That's not a and you know I just don't have any of them like all of these guys have pitched at some point in their in their lives but you know. I don't know you know like I know what J. D. Davis was a pitcher in college. You know and I don't I don't have that Kinda date on on those players yeah all right well. That's about all we have have time for that. I think and then some so all right well. It's good to well. I guess I hear your voice every week but it's good to to let the listener to Your Voice Bobby. It's good to be here.

"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..

"So it is my distinct pleasure to reunite with my dear friend. Ben Lindberg who is joining me too with news. You've got exciting and unexpected news from the world of interleague play. That's right. I don't know how many of the listeners were watching the pirates royals game on Monday. I can assure you. I was not watching fire tourists. Studied there. I can understand why no one would have been, but history was made when the pirates defeated the royals and clinched a winning record for the National League in interleague play against the American League this year for the first time in fifteen years, two thousand three was the last time that the NFL actually one in interleague play. That was a long time ago. That was the year moneyball came out that was a time when people were still doing nineteen, eighteen chance at Red Sox games. A lot has changed since then. Yeah. Have we changed as you know society for the better for the worst. It's and three. I think this is what you really wanna talk about. Right? Yeah. I don't know that the NFL finally getting back on top has coincided with an improvement society at large, but it is something to celebrate. I guess if you're an fan, I don't know if people fans of leagues anymore. This something simple for we get into to like, actually, what we want to talk about the you bring up. An interesting point has I feel like that used to be the. Because you and I are sort of the last generation that remembers life before interleague play numb, and there was and not only life before interleague play, but life before the before time when you could see every baseball game. Yeah, you wanted to write out. You just essentially guy your local team or you got your local team plus either the Braves at a cups. Right? And so like I saw the there was a while when when we got the occasional Yankees game on TV, but it was most, you know, most of what I saw on TV was Phillies and Braves, and. That really, you know, up until interleague play, and certainly before ESPN before the proliferation proliferation of ESPN and MLB dot TV really did, or pure perspective is a fan. The of these leagues were distinct entities I think about I might have talked about this before, but there are times when I talked to Meg rally who's who grew up a Seattle Mariners fan and he or she. And I had similar fan upbringings, but her being a fan of a west coast American League team in my being a fan of nationally east coast team, like there's almost no overlap in baseball that we saw up until like two thousand to two thousand three. And it was a separate species me MRs player to be totally. Yeah. I mean, it made the all star game meeting something. It made the World Series meeting something other than just to the fins of the respective teams. I mean, it was kind of cool to have league rivalries, I think. And at this point, there's no distinction between the leagues other than the d. h.. Which is maybe one reason why people get so upset about the d. h. or not having the agents cut of the only thing that actually separates anymore. So if we get to a point where expansion comes along and we talk about realignment, I wonder whether there's even enough kind of institutional loyalty to the idea of AL and NL to preserve that anymore or whether it will just go to a straight up geographic mix. You're remember when the leads us to have their own offices are remember on the eve of of interleague play in was ninety six ninety seven when whichever you they started. I was watching a a FOX game in an on a part of their their pre-game package. They did. They had Nolan Ryan and Willie Mays and someone went up to them and ask them to sign as each assign a baseball. And Nolan Ryan said, wait, this is a nationally ball willy willy may said, wait, this is an American League ball. I'm not signing this and they swabbed him and like that was twenty years ago. That's just feels the baseball landscape is. So I ran out. Is so new compared to to, you know, you think of the NBA was always a single entity thing, or the NHL or in other competitive leagues. It's so weird to to think that those lines are you know, you're right. The the d. h. is really sort of the last the last line..

"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.

"Mike socia maybe just because socia has been sort of this controversial figure for advanced analytics guys before about how the angels were using otani the the reason otani is hurt is because he's a pitcher and pitchers get hurt because pitching his bad for the human arm he throws fast if you've ever like paused an image or or seen a pitcher mid throw and seen what it's doing to his elbow it's a wonder that anyone survives pitching without getting hurt he's not getting hurt because he's he's pitching and hitting the hitting is not making him any different than the hundreds of pitchers who have gotten tommy john over the last few years who don't hit and it's not because they're mismanaging his workload either i saw an mlb network segment the other day about how the angels were pushing them too hard into starts he was only starting once a week and even in those starts he was averaging for the full season eighty nine pitches per start that's not a lot he had only gone over one hundred pitches twice his maximum was one hundred ten and he looked dominant in those games you know he would come back out for seventh inning after having six scoreless innings at eighty five pitches and now they're second guessing of maybe they shouldn't have sent him back out for that seventh inning because it you know added more pitches to his workload if otani is going to be the the major league asset you want him to be you're not gonna take him out after eighty five pitches in scoreless innings that's kind of foolish to think and even with workloads being diminished across the sport the angels did not cause this pitching in general causes and if we want people to be pitchers in wow us and entertain us with all the amazing things they can do with touching one hundred miles an hour throwing these magnificent sliders and splitters this is a risk we have to take and it sucks and we're both very sad about that but that's kind of sad to say but it's not unexpected we expect kind of the same thing about noah syndergaard jacob degrom and all.

"Plying centerfield now everything that you would guess about him as a baseball player everything you guess about him from watching him play football that's the kind of player he is he's a freak athlete he's got a little bit of powers got tons of speed but he opted out of the draft he didn't take i believe he skipped the mandatory drug tests which is one of the few ways that you can actually pull your name off the board you don't declare the for the mlb draft but and he went to am and played a little bit there but not that much transfer to oklahoma were supposed to take over for baker mayfield played a little bit of football did not play baseball yes no no baseball at am he played a little bit of baseball during his redshirt year last spring and was very good got about fifty plate appearances somewhere about sixty played princes and hit one twenty two went to the cape cod league where which is the top summer league for college prospects hit one seventy there in sixteen games and came out and played outfield pretty pretty much every day for oklahoma this year and was pretty good hit to ninety six three ninety eight five fifty six in a pretty good but not awesome league which is incredible because he for hitter development and this is why when i thought i thought he was done as baseball player when he didn't play a am because those couple years of wraps like you can take years off as a pitcher and come back but just the development that you miss by taking those couple years off is just it's so hard to replace and so it's frankly will bit surprising you did that while at oklahoma but i think that proves that the baseball skills are in there a little bit so he's an intriguing prospect as kind of a risky if he's risky for college position player but he's got upside because of that i flat us in the talents still in there he just has a lot of ground to make makeup in terms of developing that he should.
