Dodgers Out-Slug Padres to Win High-Scoring Affair
"A stunning finish on the double play off the bat of the former dodger manny. Machado as the dodgers hold on at pet, go to win seven six, they win the series as well over the Padres, two games to one John Shea Jim Russell back with you here on the wrap up show, we said the padres lead baseball by the way and runs per game last. Last segment. They entered the day third in runs per game at five, and a half runs per game on the season and against scored six runs here today. So they've been very, very good offensively. But again, with the loss, they fall to seven and six on the season. Let's hear from the manager who was jacked for the first time in his career. Here's Jay Taylor game. Yeah, it's always good to see. You know the guys continue to battle and. You. Know we've we. Kind of felt that you know inside the. In the DUGOUT when we've been down never really feel like we're out of it and you know get get the heart of the order up and chance to you know always be in the game and. You know look at the end Mandy you know squared a ball up to to left field and and They made a hell of a play I. Mean it was A. Had to be you know a perfect throw and it was a perfect one hop throw and a intact. So but dancer question Yeah. It's. It's good to see him battling back and chip away and. You know we. You know we we came up short. Your first managerial ejection tonight. That's something that had been building up over the course of the game with Margaret Mature, as more of a spur of the moment reaction to that dish. Now. It's a, it's not built up minutes. Look. I think manny thought the ball was down I. thought it was down and. You know it either I go with me and he goes I'm guessing. So it's simple as up. Your thoughts on how? To. Handle. I thought you know Came in You know we were looking for a little softer landing but. The NFL west, there's there's no soft landing especially with the dodgers and. looking for a spark and. He gave up to ground balls got through and and then obviously Peterson clicking man you know. Peterson Click a couple balls tonight. You know and. But but I was impressed with how he went back out in the second inning and. I thought that was good and it's always nice to kind of You know finish on a on a higher note, and hopefully he gets some confidence and you know continues to go forth. Interesting admission there from JAS Tingler. We were hoping for a softer landing for Luiz Patino. Remember we heard yesterday literally yesterday when he was called up, he would not initially be pitching and high leverage spots. He makes his Major League debut, not not with the lead, but trailing four too. So you could argue the leverage component of it, but Jim again, he went left left right left with the VP that a left-wing cory seager who's read hide Jock Peterson three homers in the series including the homerun again. Again Against Patino and again, you're going to have to get him at one point or another. If you call them up, there's a reason you call it Emma but Jeez in the history of big league debuts, can it be much more difficult for Patina than the inning he had to deal with there could not have been more difficult. You're facing an MVP facing the guys at thirty six bombs last year who was notorious for being i. mean you saw in the home run Derby last year he. Is. Ball's. Chris Taylor their professional hitter. It's not an, there's no easy ways to face the dodgers especially in a four two game. You put him in there hopefully to have Jason, Taylor said this thing and there by the way it's four nothing before with two outs, TAT tease homers. So all of a sudden the dynamic of the game has changed it's chain, but but seniors already ready like you've already said he's GonNa Pitch the sixth, right? Like you wonder again at four nothing there you go. Down seven nothing whatever. But at fourteen like well, I'm back in the game and you don't want him to get up and then sit down again and I'm sure that's the reason why they put them in the game like look he's already ready. Maybe. It might be not the best time to put him in. But look, we just hit a two run bomb to to get us going hopefully and putting a guy in there where he is one of if not the top prospect on this in this organization, hopefully, we can get another spark on this guy route that is
The Brewers are working on contract extension with Christian Yelich that could exceed $200 million
"Christian Yelich might be the next superstar in sports to put pen to paper on a massive contract the brewers India which are closing in on what is being reported as a nine year two hundred fifteen million dollar contract now if you're like me when you first hear that nine years and two hundred fifteen million for Christian Yelich who was the MVP two seasons ago any runner up for the most valuable player award last year when he got hurt and missed a month you're probably thinking to fifteen does not seem like enough and I would tend to agree with you about that he is taking a dramatic discount to sign this extension which is basically seven years a hundred ninety million in new money when you just saw it the rain don't who hadn't been in the top two in MVP voting over the last two years in the National League get seven years and two hundred forty five million to go to the angels in free agency when you've seen our unato in Colorado no one or not get a massive two hundred and thirty plus million dollar contract over eight seasons and here we're talking about new money seven and one ninety for a guy who might be the best player in the National League the deal was first reported today by the athletics some of the details of trickled out of come from ESPN's Jeff Passan he's got this basically yellowish would play the next two seasons starting this year on his current contract so he's scheduled to make I was about to say only how funny is that only twelve and a half million in two thousand twenty and then fourteen million next year but you know I laughed at that as far as the production B. provides and and the elite performance is gonna provide Daddy's shopping in the bargain bin that's finding one of your favorite movies in the five dollar DVD been at your favorite electronics store so the extension for that seventy one ninety would basically kick in for the brewers in two thousand twenty two and go through two thousand twenty eight and there be a mutual option in the final year in twenty twenty nine but you go back two seasons ago when Yelich won the M. V. P. he established himself after leaving Miami where he was an excellent hater and a lot of folks felt like maybe he would win a batting title at some point but didn't get a lot of help we did have a lot of production and protection rather to go along with his production there just weren't players around him as good as him to help him out as they were going to getting rid of all their pieces Giancarlo Stanton Marcello's owner he was the last guy standing so we got to go to Milwaukee and give it a try there and immediately flourished completely took off and became one of the greats in the sport and for my money right now this moment Christian Yelich of the brewers is the most underrated player in baseball which might sound ludicrous considering that he wanted MVP award is finished in the top two twice in two years but I still think when we have conversations in this industry about who the best baseball players are Mike trout's name comes out of everyone's mouth first then you get some of the bigger names that maybe don't even belong in that conversation right now based on performance like Bryce Harper Manny Machado those types but who is the second best player in the sport yeah which might be the answer Cody Bellinger won the MVP award with the Dodgers last year is in that vicinity I'd say there's a a four player tier behind trout vying for the number two seed in the sport with the yellow shoes twenty eight Ballenger who's only twenty four just barely starting to think about Mookie Betts becks is now twenty seven went from Boston to LA this offseason in a deal that took forever to consummate and Alex Bregman the twenty five year old villain now with the Astros who is so much better four in the wake of finding out that Houston Bregman has cheated over the last couple of seasons at least dating back to seventeen and some of eighteen that they've admitted to Bregman the MVP of the American League last year in my opinion ended up not finishing right behind trout and I kind of quantify things as non trout division because he should just get the award every year so I kind of say well other than trap who was the MVP this year you're competing against a legend the likes of which is going to go down as maybe the best players ever lived or one of them no one of the mount Rushmore baseball stars essentially and a guy that you'll meet people listening right now we're not gonna see another player like him probably in our
Bryce Harper has no regrets entering Year 2 with Phillies: 'Just so happy to be here'
"Mind a calendar year after Philadelphia made so many big moves Bryce Harper ended up there they were the focus of much of the offseason storyline I guess last year you couldn't go anywhere Scott without people saying what do you think Miller Machado Harper Machado are gonna end up now the Phillies seemingly after a disappointing year managerial change finer the radar a bit is is that fair to say still an incredible amount of talent secure for Bryce Harper but I find them kind of intriguing in a division that's just loaded loaded loaded loaded yeah I mean that that that east is going to be very interesting I mean I was at Matt's camp I think the day before I was in Jupiter perhaps it was either the day before I saw the cardinals or the day after I mean the Mets rotation I've got like six or seven starters buying for five spots you know it's not just a gram center guard but it's strong man and I mean even Rick Porcello who has a sigh young on his resume and or sell and and and Michael Walker and you know I mean it pieces could fall together well there you know Atlanta is done really well the last couple years and yeah I mean in clear water today you know a ton of optimism I mean you know you would think you know Bryce Harper is kind of on the Manny Machado program both of them had such chaotic offseasons a year ago that you know you would think with everything calmed down yeah baby our world in his second year have a have or even you know better year last year or so so some of these numbers you know we were pretty good but others by his standards warrant I'm talking to him today yeah the biggest thing disappointed in him as he finished with a less than a hundred walks in he said there's no way I should ever have less than our walk so yeah that suggested that he would you know he was kind of maybe a little too eager not as patient last year but you think of our comes back big thing with them is that somebody injuries last year you don't have a conscience back yes I don't know if he's gonna be ready for the start of the season but he should be ready shortly there after yeah Koch and you know they were her last year with with this many you know knee injury Arianna was hurt hello while last year the young couple their relievers war the LG but if I get a little bit of good good lot of hell yeah JT real Miro's probably that is gonna catchers there is in the game right now and yeah you put him in Bryce Harper yeah add a DD Gregorius from the Yankees he'll play shortstop and she's a girl bounce over to sac and there's there's a lot to like about this team you know I heard all of the bounce back year but they added yeah nation as well Yolanda talent we will get over that side this you were there last year and holy cow you just you know look at and what they have on paper all of the guys they can throw at you during the spring so these games when you see you know twenty five thirty guys it's it's remarkable so that that division is going to be some to see and I don't know make maybe the nationals team that actually won the World Series maybe they're fine under the radar as well because of everything so maybe some you know sleeping giants in the NL east from a storyline standpoint yeah exactly I mean you're right I will talk about the bats in the Phillies and and yeah all the national there yeah and by the way there already we're dealing like the forgotten team looks like you're right could you imagine he's going to beat them last year and then this all came out and they were sharing a complex is all that would be so bad that it would be first of all you're right just in the west Palm Beach it would be really awkward at that complex second of all for baseball I mean thank god I didn't wait a second time in three years last year that would be it would be even worse than it is right now Scott Miller from bleacher report Turner sports big league
NBA trade deadline: Winners, losers and teams in between
"Flurry of trades in the NBA a blockbuster in baseball mortar common colds to memorialize Kobe Bryant and highly visible way joined by ESPN's Howard Bryant good morning hours good morning Scott how are you I'm fine thanks is awesome aggressive deals in the NBA trade at the trade deadline who do you rack up as the winners and losers well and I'm not sure about the winners and losers of the trade deadline but certainly the winners and losers right now of the first half of the season you've got a look at the Lakers in the west and and the Milwaukee Bucks I think they are head and shoulders above everybody else how could you hold on for a moment our you know head yes government for you almost got me for a second there's got yeah Milwaukee is terrific and and they're great they're holding on the crushed Philadelphia the other night I thought coming into the season it was gonna be Philadelphia Milwaukee Los Angeles and Los Angeles Lakers and the clippers but I'm not too sure about the other two yet but we've got a long way to go I think trade deadline wise I think Miami Heat got much much better they got on great good dollar they made a very good deal with Memphis I think that Philadelphia tried to shore up of making a deal with with the warriors and de Angelo Russell going to Minnesota who knows what that's gonna do maybe there's a late run there but the bottom line is coming forward right now I still think that you've got two teams in this league disappointed the Boston Celtics didn't do anything but I think it's the box and the Lakers right now an official memorial for Kobe Bryant's been set for February twenty fourth they've been calls to make his image a permanent part of the game you even rent a Poland that did I did I read a little Twitter poll this morning which was soundly rejected to replace Kobe Bryant is Jerry west to is the logo of the NBA with cut him a cell away from the silhouette of your request yes absolutely and it would have been fitting in some ways because Jerry west was the the man behind making sure Kobe Bryant ended up with the Lakers making that draft day trade with the Charlotte Hornets and I I understand add on one on one level the need or they want to want to memorialize Kobe I also understand that the NBA has been around since nineteen forty seven and maybe it's time to create a new logo Jerry west has been there fifty years since nineteen sixty nine however I do think that if you're going to think about and I'm a new logo or and a modern logo it's probably got to be Michael Jordan right or but I got an arm and a leg yeah but I also understand the desire right now for people to feel that something should be done for Kobe Bryant after after all that happened Boston Red Sox LA Dodgers Minnesota Twins switching sports agreed to a three team trade Tuesday that's been perhaps delay it has been delayed because of some medical records Mookie Betts has what they call a generational player MVP Golden Gloves traded to the Dodgers are the red Sox making the worst roster decision since they sold Babe Ruth's contract well if you red Sox fans are very happy about it especially because it's a generational player Mookie Betts is a beloved player two years ago he wins the M. B. P. and they won the World Series you're looking at a guy that fans just adore and it's a very cynical move in some ways but it also may very well be a huge business deal for them because number one we know that super star players now at this level after Manny Machado deal after the Bryce Harper deal your it in and now the the Gerrit Cole deal you're looking at three hundred and fifty four hundred million dollars to sign a player and if Mookie Betts didn't want to play with the red Sox will find out over the next several weeks and months if that was the case then of course they had to move them but on the other hand if that's not the case the red Sox are a super power they can sign whoever they want they've got money it's looking like a cynical deal we will see I'm good at and by the way I got as you know your cubs aren't far behind because you've got a guy like Chris Brian who's another cornerstone player and what does that mean for the cubs keep these players and the fans love him yeah thank you very much ESPN's Howard Bryant thanks so much no my pleasure
Blockbuster deal: Red Sox agree to trade Mookie Betts, David Price to Dodgers
"So the dodgers Red Sox have agreed to a blockbuster deal two thousand eighteen. Al Mvp Mookie. Betts and pitcher. David price have been traded to Los Angeles. Is it monkey the second best player in baseball. My crazy I thought it was Mike. Troughton mookie Betts might not now in the three-team team deal the dodgers. Since outfield Alex Vertigo to Boston and Kenza Majeida to the twins and the Red Sox also receive pitching prospects bruised doc from Minnesota clearly. Obviously a money thing for Boston it has they WanNa get below the luxury tax threshold price as a three year. Ninety six nine dollar deal and mookie designed a Deal as well okay. Okay I got a taste of first of all dodgers are very well run and in the dodgers do not spend. They're very smart. They spend a lot more than they do. They have a ton. The dodgers have great farm system and everybody they bring up works like everybody so they spend a lot of money on research and development development. They have passed. They passed on Harper. They passed on Zach grinky they passed on somebody else. That was expensive. Manny Machado. That didn't go all in on him. So for the dodgers to go in on McKee bets. It tells you he's a he's a day. One changed the franchise talents superstar or star. Yes he is the second best player in the sport. I don't know what his war consecutive gold glove last year. Obviously when AOL. MVP and she says. How are the red sox struggling struggling with money? I don't get it. I thought it was the Yankees made the most money because they have the necessary they have a regional network. That's a cash cow so yankees make the most money. Isn't it like dodgers Red Sox.

NBA Draft: Odds Say Sixers Won't Trade Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid
"Now what a great way to end Tuesday night as you had the NBA draft lottery as a Sixers fan here in Philadelphia. The draft lottery has been the highlight of a season forget the off season. It's been the season for a long time. I didn't come. Joel Embiid incomes. Ben Simmons incomes Marquel. Who? Oh, yeah. Forgot about him for a second there. The collars, Bryan Colangelo. Cherry Colangelo in town the draft lottery. Symbolizes what's bad the nightmare though. The worst of sports you're stuck down. They're not necessarily in purgatory. But if you can't flip things and turn things around and take advantage of where you are. You're going to be stuck down there. So for me, and I know a lot of other people outside of New York City. It was a great highlight. And you know, maybe even outside of Manhattan because I'm sure a lot of Mets fans in Brooklyn. And. Staten Island and Long Island. We're looking and thinking my Knicks fan alkyl or cousin or brother mom. I can't wait to go back and give it to them that they thought they had I on in their hands. And then the Knight's capped off as you just heard with the splash brothers back. In fact, and I don't know what people thought was going to happen. Because far too often what you have something in front of you. And I deal with this constantly when I talk in tweet about game of thrones, which we'll get to not specifically. But it brought up a question that I throw out on Twitter Chander show for a question of the night ten minutes from now, but think about this. Kevin Durant goes out, you know, he's out game one game two of the season series. So immediately there is this shift like man Golden State's in trouble Golden State's not the same team. It's going to take a lot for Golden State to hold off Portland who comes in with that backward. Hungary and healthy. But in fact, a lot of people for for different reasons. I'm sure have turned their back on Steph curry it's got to the point where outside of that explosion that we saw that thirty three point explosion in the second half to close out game. Six people were actually going on social media and having this conversation about how I saw and it wasn't some random egg account with thirty three followers in Arkansas. This was legit conversation going back and forth about Steph curry never really that. Great in the postseason and other guys carrying him. All of a sudden legacy is at question. And I thought to myself this is what happens when you don't have LeBron James in the postseason when you don't have a default guy that you can go to and say, oh, yeah. Legacy impacted by every little decision or every little thing that's done. Instead you needed to find somebody else with Kevin Durant out. I guess the default guy was. Steph curry, so maybe you thought that Portland could come in and steal a game. And maybe thought that Golden State just didn't quite feel right? Just didn't quite look right against the clippers or there was something about them against Houston. And now minus Durant their prime for being beat in. What are these two games? Well, they came out, and as you heard at the moment in which Steph curry knocks down six three pointer or the night. This thing was not in question and usual suspects step up imagine that Steph curry Klay Thompson Draymond green with another great defensive effort throughout. So what were you looking for for a team that played I think everybody on their bench? I think every single person that suited up played for the Golden State Warriors, which as we know it's been a stark contrast in years prior where there's like two or three guys off the bench and a t run. But I think what happened is you start to look. And maybe it's subconsciously. I don't know. But you start to look for reasons and you start to look for cracks and you start to look for wear and pinpoint the exact moment in which the Golden State Warriors are falling apart. And I know odds makers out there will play off your emotions they will play off your emotions more so than your brain and way, more so than your wallet, your wallet's an afterthought if they can get your heart if they can get you betting with your heart more, so than your brain you've lost. It doesn't matter how much juice your pay. It doesn't matter. What you're bringing back. It doesn't matter. What your percentages on what you're bringing in the moment that you're locked in betting with your heart. It's over and I see that happening in Phillies constantly odds. Go up with the Sixers odds go up with Carson Wentz odds, go up with Bryce Harper where will he land? Manny Machado will be a filly by week's end minus one thousand people just put money right away. Oh, take my money because it's Philly and people bet with their heart. And I know it's not just here because those casinos are not existing in Atlantic City and mainly in Las Vegas simply because of a bunch of idiots in Philadelphia betting with
Dodgers Set Opening Day Record With 8 Home Runs

Top seven Mariners. Ten four lead on Boston. This game available on the ESPN app and seen on ESPN dodger set an opening day record with eight home runs in their win over the Diamondbacks. Talk about a first impression for Robertson Cano with the Mets the one one away swinging a fly ball well center. Going back road was way back onto the track. Robertson cano. I ipad as.

Major League Baseball Preview: It's Opening Day 2019
"Opening day, and I cannot wait Madsen Yanks get everything started at one on five. I realize Harrison I was just looking over the schedule before the Mets and the and the Yanks are the only to apply at one zero five tomorrow one a Yankee actually one Mets for one zero five and then the other games will follow throughout to go around major league baseball right now, we welcome. And Scott Miller who's a national baseball columnist for Bleacher report scout amongst other things Scott happy opening day. I mean, this is this is a great grey day for baseball fans everywhere. A big slate of exciting action all across major league baseball. It is happy opening day to you as well. And yeah, it's it seems like it can't get here. Quick enough. I always say, you know, baseball more than any other sport has brings with it something that is unique that nothing else can say that simply as opening day equates. To the promise of summer, the promise of the last day of school is very close. It's getting closer. And who doesn't like the thought of summer vacation and whatever else and thought of war nights at the ballpark. Yeah. I mean, there's a lot of things that go into the other thing I would add to that. Scott would be the fact that you know, you have it there for you pretty much every night for the next six months, it's different than opening night and football way opening week, whatever it is. And then it goes away for a few days. And then it's once a week baseball. Once it starts, it is six months of basically there for you every single night. And that's what I love about it. Yeah. No question. I mean, I I know, you know, even you know going back as a kid growing up in Michigan. I grew up about thirty miles south of Detroit so back then I followed the Tigers. And, you know, just, you know, your kid, and you can't you know, you don't have your driver's license yet or anything. Thing every night the summertime you had a friend. You had you had your Tigers. In my case on TV. College. I had a great summer job at a state park in Michigan. Yeah. During my summers off in college and state park, quite often. I would be a permit but without front as cars came in. I take their money, you know, the three bucks or whatever cost command and a state park was over near lake eerie and not only were you outside in the summer. But I had a radio in that booth and I worked at three thirty to eleven thirty shift and listen to music up until about seven or seven thirty. And then I click over to hurry. You know him and Paul Carey telling me all about whatever was going on with the Tigers at night. And you're right. It every night every day there there there's something that just build slowly. And slowly, you know, like a great book read a chapter, maybe grabs you, then the next one. And then you go on and what the Mets in particular. And you're right. I mean, that's that's the beauty of what the Mets in particular. You get excited early on because the Mets own opening day. Matter of fact, they've won thirty seven of the west forty nine last year. They started started twelve and to Scott and everybody at least around here. At least myself I was excited about this ball club in and then they went into the tank naturally. So that book got pretty bad in a hurry. You look at this meds ballclub in the National League east in particular. Where do you rank the Mets right now in the NFL is heading in opening day? You know, I it not deduct a question. But is that's what's gonna be fascinating about the summers. I think anywhere from first to fourth. I mean, you know, depending on health depending on the way things go, I mean, you know, the National League east more than any division of the game. You had teams trying to better themselves trying to to to you know, deliver that knockout punch in the wintertime with trades and free agent signings. Dom, you know, I mean the nationals I think everybody talks about them losing Bryce Harper. And the funny thing there is I think a lot of people are kind of dismissing the nationals because hey, they lost Bryce Harper. That kid want. Soto is great Victor rollerblades is coming out. They're going to be good Phillies made their moves Atlanta won the division last year. You know, I like what the Mets did. I think they they they they made some smart moves. You know, obviously you start with the pitching. Graham, and how about the ground versus shirts or the mile. I mean talk about a great opening day matchup but him center, Dr Wheeler. I like getting Edward D as I mean, people Robertson knows the bigger name. I, of course, still and people say, oh, can I was going back to New York? But Edwin d as the this kid was as good a closer was in a game last year for Seattle. That's a great addition. You know? Behind the plate. You know? Wilson ramos. I think there's some promise, and it's gonna take health and has gonna take some, you know, smart play and Conforto needs to continue to improve. But you know, like, I said without doc in the question. I mean, I thanks go. Well, I think they're gonna content put it that way. I think you'll see a fourteen horse race down into the last into August and September and how about the National League overall. We don't need to go into the specifics of each division here. But you mentioned Al the National League east can be in the brave yet through the defending champs and natural good even without harbor Phillies. Clearly better their lineup on paper looks loaded Mets made some improvements. So those four teams should be battling there. I mean, you look at the rest of the National League. How do you feel the central is gonna plan everybody? I know loves the cubs this year people high in the cardinals brewers are pretty darn good. You're talking now we just went over to divisions in there are seven teams potentially to be the playoffs even with the reds improving. I still don't think that they're realistic realistic. To be playoff team. And then in the west I mean, yeah. At least have two or three teams fighting for the postseason. So Scott when you look at it, how do you see the wildcard plan out? I mean, you could give me the divisions. I but in the National League the Walker is going to be intriguing. Yeah. It is. Because you're you're right. I mean, you know, the cubs ninety five or more games. I think for four years in a row at you know, they they have a really good team. You know, the one team I'm keeping an eye on. I I'm not so sure about no walkie. I mean on paper, they look really good. But they're one team that kind of disrespect starting pitchers. I mean, they're they're success last year aside from the smart moves to get Renzo Kane and Christian yelich their success. Was that bullpen was phenomenal. Josh Hader is back and going to be really good. But you know, Jeremy Jeffress has a sore shoulder. Corey knievel sore elbow to start the year. Those were two guys that played a big role in that broke in the bullpen. So my question with the brewers. I think for them to repeat last year. They've got to have the bullpen pitch. Every bit as good as it did last year. And I'm not sure both sides are so volatile. I'm not sure if they're going to be able to match what they did last year. So, you know, that's why I'm watch wants Milwaukee. Cincinnati. Please is gonna hit like a zillion home runs in that ballpark. He's probably gonna drive the rats crazy with some of his antics. They'll be fine. Say Lewis is gonna be good doubt. Dodgers everybody talks about Clayton Kershaw unavailable for opening day because he's opening on the injured list, but they're pretty deep. And I think they still are the favorites in the National League West Colorado's right there. Again, you talk about all the teams that are contenders. I'm not sure. But I tell you what for the first time in ten or fifteen years, the Padres have become relevant. Manny machado. It's gonna be fascinating to see what he does especially after playing the villain, and I told her and I was shocked. You know, the Padres went the opposite way of what most teams do keep the kids in the minors to buy an extra year of service time delay free agency. They call up their kid Fernando taste junior is going to be the opening day lineup playing shortstop tomorrow as well. Next Chato and he's juniors right there next to Blad. Gratitude here is one of the best prospects of the game. So you know, everywhere you look a lot to be excited for we're talking about Scott Miller national baseball columnist for Bleacher report. Yeah. And that's Scott. Normally I feel like you could read the predictions from everybody in America that writes these predictions. Are you looking at it yourself? It's hard to pick against the teams who are consistently. They're hard to knock off the cobs hard to knock off the nationals. The dodgers, then maybe you take one or two different teams making the playoffs this year in the National League in particular when you look at it going into the year. Maybe I'm wrong. Greg me, if I am I see more parody than ever before you can make a scenario as we just mentioned a bunch of different teams. I wouldn't be shocked if any of those different scenarios happens where you can have three to four teams in each division competing for playoff spots. Yeah. I think that's true. I think that's that's healthy for baseball. Because I, you know, look we're coming off a season where attendance dropped about four percent last year and seventeen of thirty teams saw tennis declines. And there are various reasons for that. You know baseball will tell you a big part of the reason is the April and may weather last year in the east and midwest was really bad, cold, rainy and fans just didn't want to come out. I'm sure that's a contributing factor last year. Was the first year in baseball history. Whenever more strikeouts than hits. I think the way the games being played right now is a contributing factor to attendants declining. But the third contributing factor in my opinion, is you know, we've reached that stage. You know, we were tanking is kind of gotten away from that a little bit this year. But if you want to say tanking or rebuilding clubs have realized the middle's the worst place to be if we can't win we need to strip things down and rebuild. And I think too many teams in the last couple of years have have done that. And so what you've gotten is is, you know, fans in number of cities losing interest in the game because their local team is trying so hard it's basically stripping down rebuilding. So the fans are like, well, what's there to be excited about what you just said in the National League to that last point? I think finally in the National League at least you're right as you look. Around. You don't see, you know, a third of the league or more rebuilding. You see teams that they think they can win in that are giving their fans reason to hope and that is not the case. Of course in the American League's we transition narrow let's start with the American League east. Let me ask you this way. More concerned with the Yankees injuries slash starting rotation or the Red Sox bullpen heading into the year. Yeah. It's Baltar concerns. I you know, I I pick the Red Sox to win the division last year. And I'm leaning that way this year because I respect that Red Sox rotation. Chris sale, David price report, Selo and company. And also, I think the Red Sox where I like him last year, and I still sort of do that lineup. I think there are back at more strikeouts than hits in the game. There are fewer strikeouts. In the Red Sox lineup there. It's a nice mix of power in contact hitters on base guys guys that can put the ball in play. Whereas, you know, as we know the Yankees lineup is really exciting. But at Tanah homers, and and you guys are going to strike out a bunch. So that's sad. I would give the edge the Red Sox, but they didn't bring Craig kimbrel back Joe Kelley was under rated and that bullpen last year. He was a free agent went to sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers. So. So the Red Sox bullpen is a work in progress. I tell you what. There's a chance that bullpen could make Alex Cora. Look not so smart after they made him look really smart in his debut season. As manager last year, you give the raise any chance to make ninety games for goodness sake or ago. Yeah. I think so I mean, you know, look Blake's now, you know, part of the fun. This year is is is is is it is every year is finding out. You know, what our guys gonna certain guy's gonna do for an encore Blake Snell is one of those. I mean Cy Young winner last year phenomenal. But the baseball history is stacked with all kinds of you know, one hit wonders guys that were great one year. And then they they did repeat the m-. The thing about baseball. It makes it so difficult is, you know, the the Mark of a great player is consistency over a number of seasons. You know, when you turn a guys baseball card over, you know, the statistic line. Doesn't jump out at you from one year. But rather over five six seven years is pretty consistent. And that's what Blake's now is going to have to build this year. He's got to build on what he started last year. And that's gonna be interesting. I liked the addition of Charlie Morton, former Houston Astro into the rotation in Tampa Bay that's going to help. They got some good things going on Tampa Bay.

They can go watch the games and the whole family can be together on the south side. I don't know. Anyway. So you get the White Sox. The Yankees the Phillies were involved as well dodgers, maybe whatnot. Anyway. So he met with the White Sox on Monday. Met with the Yankees here on Wednesday. And I saw some pictures. I'm not so sure how I. I feel about this, Sean. Put up the big image on the jumbo screen of Manny Machado. Do they still call it a jumbo screen? The jumbotron. I don't think. So anyway, it's kind of like a aid is abandoned, you know, the brand I guess, I guess right? Kleenex is a type of tissue. Have you seen? Manny Machado sister looks nothing like him. Anyway. So good not mentioned. It's not gonna get into Manny Machado is family dynamics here yazmin Nunez. Yes. Yeah. Has she look very good, beautiful blonde hair. Yeah. Anyway.

"And that was a big believer that the laziness lack of hustle was greatly overrated. I never thought Robinson can always Lacey. What I thought was. He was so smooth defensively at second base. He played the game with such ease. It looked that way. I don't get to watch Manny Machado every single day. None of us do unless you're an Oriole fan or you're a dodger fan for a few months. I don't know if it's exactly the same. Here's what I know about Manny Machado. He's a really really really good baseball player. And the problem I have with arguing against signing. Manny Machado is how can you possibly try to argue against signing? A really really good baseball player a guy. That's really good. It's simplistic stuff. Not splitting the atom here. Manny Machado is awesome at baseball. Does it create questions about how you handle the infield? When Didi Gregorios comes back it does. And there's a lot of ways you can work it. But he's really really good, and the lack of hustle stuff, and the Johnny hustle stuff. When you really think about it? It kinda only matters to us. It does it really matter to his teammates for the most part and proper because have you heard teammates, ripping Manny Machado. I haven't heard that. I've heard that he's a really good teammate heard the same thing about Robinson canot. So isn't it just something that angers fans and media members does and if he's hitting thirty eight home runs and driving in one hundred and twenty runs and helping the Yankees win a world championship next year? What does it mean? Quick break. We'll come back with your calls. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six. What does building a better Bank?

"manny machado" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Let's not waste any time best for last after almost three hours. Colin apparently hasn't gotten to the point yet. Quit holding out on us coward it's the best for less alright series tied at two went thirteen innings last night. Cody Bellinger who didn't start was off to a one for twenty to start in the series got plugged in the eighth, and then in the thirteenth drove in Manny, Machado and Tom Verduci FOX, baseball analyst is joining us. Okay, let's start with Manny Machado. I said this earlier, Tom sports has a his. History of agitators, Rodman lamb, beer, Richard Sherman, Josh Norman, they are poking the ribs get in your head. I could argue Manny Machado. Nobody was at risk physically. He was a troll last night. They called a troll on the internet. He's getting into Milwaukee's head. He's had a tremendous series. I'm not. I've seen this my whole life in sports, but my guess is Milwaukee, doesn't see it that way. You talked to Christian yelich. What did he say? Well, he had no problem calling out Manny Machado calling that a dirty play by a dirty player and Khan. I think the reason he was so bothered by was because you had Aggie lar the first basement in a vulnerable position, and they saw that as a play by a channel that was not necessary and was reckless. So yeah, I mean, listen, Manny, of course, it's a good word to use a troll in this case on the field, at least because he's in middle of so many storms. You begin to believe that maybe he is the storm. Well, here's the thing. My favorite baseball player of all time was George Brett, but if you Google his career, he missed twenty-five thirty games a year. Machado doesn't miss any. He plays every day. He doesn't always run hard to I, but he's wildly productive. He's one of the five stars in the sports. And I gotta be honest, I, it's, I grew up with our Bosque, Mickey rivers, all sorts of Mark Federick Ricky Henderson, quirky guys, Machado's got an ego. Oh, I think he's I would. I mean, listen, the cubs were the Yankees are going to go after him, right? Like this isn't going to dissuade teams from going after Machado right. No, I don't think so. Listen, I think what you're talking about is the guy who shows his frustrations on the field in ways that really probably are not professional, not running a ball out the play at first base last night that will not dissuade people from giving this guy, three hundred million dollars plus because of the talent and the ability. In fact, you saw that in the thirteenth inning. His read on first base on that ball in the dirt was incredible, gets the second base and has a great score from second base on the winning base hit. So talent is going to win. He's twenty six years old. Listen, I do think there's going to be some teams out there. This will give them pause. They will have to do a little more homework into the character. When you turn over that much money to a player, you want to feel good about what you're doing that that investment is a good one. So I think it will give some teams pause, but the bottom line talking about money is a bottom line, right? Not sure that's gonna change all that much because what happened just last night into. Interesting game for the dodgers kershaw's a first ballot hall of Famer, but has had some well documented postseason struggles, Dave Roberts in the analytic era where managers make lesson, have less leverage will probably get blamed. That's the way it works. If this talented roster doesn't win, could it? Could this be Dave Roberts last game, the manager of the dodgers Clayton Kershaw dodger career, not be as long lasting as we thought. I mean, I think this game today, if the dodgers lose it's one of the biggest dodger games in five, six years. What's your takeaway Kirsch on robbers. It seems like we've been in a situation so many times with Kirsch getting the ball where you say it's a big game. He's gotta come through. Just go back to last year game five of the World Series complete clunker with that series tied. So yes, this could be his last start..

"I'm doing well how are you good manny machado was traded for five players only one of them had ever been in the big leagues so there's a lot of hope and potential involved there and he was a rental there are some other names that are being kicked around it seems like the price tag is even higher for but they're players with years of control lack before they can ever had free agency you're at what i just said about that's an important part in facet of trades and now teams look at them in like our teams undervaluing or overvaluing years of control under valuating or over a valuating what a guy could do in a rental position even if he's going to be a free agent at the end of the year I think every single team. Undervalues the value, of a rental like Manny Machado. Type because teams today especially are so, afraid of giving up their prospects every team. Falls in love, with their prospects? And, I? Think sometimes lose sight of the. Fact of why you develop these prospects and so you get. Eventually win with them or acquire better players for them and I give the dodgers. About of credit every single year at the trade deadline. They go forward hard last year is you Darvish this, year's Manny Machado native made a big trade deadline deal every year since Andrew Friedman. And firearms eighty took over that front. Office and it's so that it will work. It will work for the dodgers everything they immediately became probably the favorites in the National League because they acquired Manny Machado and you know winning a World Series is hard. The opportunities don't come around so often and I applaud team that sees those opportunities Do on the same page, there and oh by the way Machado has been. Very good since he got all he's done, is it since he put on dodger uniform so so far so good in renting him do you believe that's the way it's going to shake out that he. Will do is two and a half months and helped the dodgers a make the. Playoffs be make the playoffs and get back to the World Series. See when the world trade could be any of the above but it's gotta start with making the playoffs and then go their separate ways during the off. Season or do you think they got him and even though they know his contracts expire and he's not going to sign. Prior to the, end of the year today believe. They've got a big time shot that, this gives them an advantage in re-signing Machado I wouldn't, predict that he ends up with Los Angeles and long term I don't think it's impossible You know he ends, up spending a couple of months they are maybe they win. The pennant maybe they win and championship and he's, sitting any enjoys it and he wants to stay I know the. Dodgers sort of team, has constituted doesn't really seem to have long-term. Place for Manny Machado right now but for Manny Machado you find a way to make it work and. I think the dodgers would find a way, to make it work at Machado wanted to stay there so I think if you're a dodger. Fan your hope is win a lot of games, over the, next couple, of months and make Manny Machado won a. Stay there for the next six seven. Years Jared diamond national baseball writer for the Wall Street Journal our guest. Here on.

Course the Sixers season we'll open. Up without Kawhi Leonard of course we all found this out this week is all of the big stars are supposed to come to Philadelphia. Work out so well so we'll get into all that, is three question Thursday which I have to remember if. I can do it it's. Been a long time we've had one of these I've is filling in for Afternoons a little while, I was on vacation for a week we had a. Lot of Phillies games but. Here it is the three question Thursday on a Thursday And we have Phillies tickets it's. More night's games give away so that's all coming up and, a lot, of fun to do tonight over the next three hours I want to. Start with this I want to start with the week. That has been the I guess the stain or, annoyance or frustration that has formed? Here in. This city over to quote a phrase from Brett Brown star hunting I wish I. Could do the accent like Brett but you know what, I mean star hunting Brett Brown would say that is not gone the way it looks like it could it might maybe you feel, like it should the Sixers do not land Kawhi Leonard the. Phillies do not land Manny Machado as he goes to the dodgers dodgers actually coming here. Next week which should be a fascinating little subplot, to this whole thing and what I have felt both on the air and on social media really just anyone I talked to this about the whole situation with let's take the Phillies to. Start us off because that's the more, pressing one I think in the moment, because that one look Maybe more realistic earlier this week I. Certainly thought it did I was. Told that did it went the other way but the feeling that I've gotten more than anything else is just negatively and anger and. Frustration at these teams one or both not finishing the deal, not bringing, in the star that everyone at here and I sit here now thinking. About all this picket about where these teams are and. That's not the feeling I have is it disappointing, that Kawhi Leonard is not going? To be. A sixth of this year that the idea of the Sixers competing for an NBA. Title this year has taken a big hit of course, it is disappointing of course it is is the idea that Manny Machado is not here for the stretch run does it take the, Phillies chances to win the NFL's down a pack yeah of. Course does he would have made them a better team is take their chances to go. On a magical run down a little bit yeah, of course it does because he's a great player he would have made a better team but it doesn't destroy the Sixers future It doesn't destroy the Phillies future if? Anything it actually might help the Phillies future because they have to surrender? Prospects, for a. Rental..

"Wanted to ask you about okay with Manny Machado in the fold if I gave you the dodgers are the field in. The, National League. That might be too, much but they're in first place now they add Machado I mean they're they're heavy. Favorites correct yes I I don't know we don't. We don't know Manny Machado over here we've just been, studying? His stats all day very good this year she with. The odds. Are. But I'm going to guess the dodgers are now the team to beat in the National League sure, but. Did everything, it's. All loaded in the American League so who who's the big challenge, here now by getting him and you know Diamondbacks were involved in this and the Phillies. Were involved in this. You take so you're getting Machado, the dodgers get Machado and you're making. Sure that your competition the nationally doesn't get him so it's a win win for LA yes mclovin, dekalb's actually have the best. Record I guess that's. That has, to, be the main, competition? Right The Cowboys and. The. Brewers are the only teams at more. Wins than the dodgers right now but what you have, Machado In amazing nobody talked about Manny Machado until he was, there is the possibility was going to be traded and then. You know it feels like we're talking about Manny Machado. Now and we hadn't talked about him in a long long time. Now he was one. Of, those guys where you go you, got include, Machado in. There and the conversation a best way don't forget about Machado, well the fact that he's a shortstop you know Segers out so you gotta shortstop here putting up those kinds of numbers and that's what, he wanted to stay at shortstop because you look at those. Numbers differently than you do? If you move into third base any any wants to be. Viewed as is a shortstop here but how old is Machado see twenty six twenty seven just. Turned twenty six twenty six What are. Is what what's his contract situation what are the dodgers inheriting, here and I think they gave up they gave up young talent that they didn't give up anybody who's currently on the roster I don't, think did they polling no no it's all high end prospects. They said some of their? Top ten prospects he makes sixteen million a year that's good Earliest free agency two. Thousand nineteen Okay so? He's, got this year next year no it looks like he's a. True, free rental for, six months okay true free agent. But he's friends with mad camp that was a cool moment last night where Kemp. Gets the dissection base. Any take he's got a phone they're taking a selfie with Machado, at second base and their friends and it, just felt like You're going I. Was told this yesterday.

"A little against form by doing what he did and i don't want to speak for manny machado 'cause i don't know him a little bit but i'll say that in baseball league would there's no cap you can spend as much as you want it's just penalties for going above and beyond a luxury tax number yeah manny machado wants to get the bidding rolling and put together and maybe maybe the largest contract in the history of baseball type deal mardi from west chester up on the fan mardi yes good morning jody i like to give my take on the manny machado situation yes i'm like a lotta yankee fan i'm scratching my head obviously a terrific plant but he's definitely not a priority at this point i want to mention something that i read in the daily news this morning indicates that the phillies we'll report it to be making a serious push for as of yesterday now obviously you spent a lot of time in philadelphia do you have any insight into this el al i've an opinion i think the reports are accurate that the phillies are interested in him a lot of the philadelphia hierarchy the president the general manager came through baltimore on their way to philadelphia so they are quite familiar with manny from back two days when he first joining orioles as a matter of fact and they like the player allied so it makes sense and they have a need at shortstop they're playing a kid out of position at shortstop right now scotty kingsley who shouldn't be playing mary she says the second baseman more than anything else but she's aaron hernandez is having a very good year second so they don't wanna move him so even putting machado they're who's a below average defender they still would probably be upgrading defensively kingery is also below average and kingery could become their jackofalltrades guys in play all over the place and still get three out of six starts a week i think that it would make a lot of sense for the phillies to pursue machado even if it's just in a rental fashion yeah i certainly hope that they continue to show interest but question frankly the prospects that the yankees might have to try to get machado i'd definitely rather stay invest until a starting pitcher no question right and as i said earlier and it bears repeating i knows a little specialized last year but it does happen from time to time not i can never happens or once in a blue moon like last year berlin and became available in august they finally got the deal done august the last day of august right before him being ineligible to play in a postseason as a matter of fact the eleventh hour on the august thirty first deadline and there may be a pitcher that shakes out that you weren't banking on being available but have you spent your capital your best prospects to get your hands on manny machado you might not be able to pull up deal for that or arm in august right excellent points all he listen always a pleasure talking to you have a great weekend mardi my pleasure thank you time for at least one more here ben from it up on the fan then hey joey thanks for taking my call a long time with her i just had i just heard earlier a little piece with a swinging and he he made an awesome point about going forward with the potential for wildcard playoffs my opinion i don't think avenue fan and i don't miss i don't think the yankees are going to win the division but i don't even know that it matters because they're gonna wind up playing either boston or houston one way or the other and going forward and so the bottom line here is yes the yankees pitching no the yankees don't need manny machado or bryce harper who i load because of his personality a won't fit on this team and they need a pitcher her mom unfortunately is not playing out and why is gone now in my grammy's obviously gone i don't trust some gray and i don't think anybody else stress tanaka and cc is pitching on one leg so clearly they need pitching right and here's here's the issue and if you want to up to me and go jody it's exactly what happened last year and it didn't keep the yankees for winning in the playoffs.

"Of the big pieces of news to come out of the weekend we were just talking manny machado and the possible destinations for the allstar oriel he's likely not to resign in baltimore if he would become a free agent and so the franchise knows what it has to do that gotta get something for him this is a not an unfamiliar situation for baseball teams nba teams all kinds of stuff we run into this all the time if if you take your chances like the oklahoma city thunder dead in bringing a guy who's about to hit the end of his contract and yet is expressed desire to play somewhere else it's a risk and in the case of machado sure the orioles could hope that they would convince him to stick around but it major league baseball i mean the the money that he can be offered and the guaranteed years that he could other teams could put on that contract i mean maybe he's tired of lose into i can understand why he would want to go to a team that would be a little more regular in the postseason no lingering neuron and the right now there are seven teams have offers on the table more that are interested that will be a big story once we get to the end of july you know what someone's going to have to send me a text if could use guys just promise me and maybe machado gets traded while i'm in cuba actually it may end up being news in cuba because they're big time baseball fans just over the weekend i was facebook messaging back and forth because this is how they communicate most of the time i was facebook messaging back and forth with one of my friends in cuba his name is camilo last year i took him a red sox hat because he loves the red sox i have no idea why i think a lot of it has to do with some of the central american players that have ended up with the red sox but also caribbean players like david ortiz for instance and pedro martinez hi pedro and so he loves to follow players from central america as well as from the caribbean but for whatever reason he's a red sox fan so last year i took him a red sox cap and there's a picture of us actually all my twitter of the two of us posing together a him in my red sox cap that i left there and so he was he was back and forth in his spanish like very rapid i'm practicing my spanish he's supposed to be practicing his english but instead he was just like firing off all of these messages about the red sox don't speak spanish and how they need to go pick up jose abrego at the trade deadline so yeah just on and on and on like all of his ideas about the red sox and how the best team in baseball and this could be their year and la la la and i didn't have the heart to remind him they just won a world series in two thousand thirteen it really hasn't been that long but he was happy so let them go anyway i have really no idea what the point of that was oh the i probably would find out the news about manny machado getting traded in cuba even before i would get your text messages but someone needs is going to need to make a list of the major sports stories the week have in cuba okay can you guys do that we can do that producer chris that's going to be your job because is it doesn't watch sports i mean he doesn't say anything because he knows it's true it's after hours on cbs sports radio and on facebook yeah just twelve days away from my third consecutive summers spending week in havana and i'm already bracing myself for the heat and the humidity la so major league baseball named its all star rosters it's this weird formula don't get upset if you don't understand it it's a little bit like what nascar does every single year and changing its championship and it's race for the play offs here's what you need to know most.

"Manny machado sweepstakes because of the money they they have available the prospects they have they have to pay and the need they have the phillies all right there but everything i'm hearing is that the phillies are they're not limping in but they're certainly not being as aggressive with their offers as the dodgers but those two teams have the most obvious need and also are amongst the teams with the most dollars available to spend going forward and also have the prospect capital to make this happen again the brewers when the pain a tremendous price for a rental because i don't see machado going back there the braves i don't think it's a super pressing need for the comes i don't think it's a pressing need for the indians it's make sure to fortify the bullpen starting rotation is loaded i don't know that they can keep him in cleveland longterm from a dollar standpoint i'm not convinced they have the prospect capital either to get it done and i guess the other team the look at is the diamond backs and i'm not even sure i see the diamondbacks farm system i'm not as familiar with as some of these other teams so i don't know that they have the prospect capital to get it done but all indications are they've been very very aggressive in their offer and air offer stacks up pretty darn well with that of the dodgers the phillies and may even be ahead of the phillies but you could see the obvious need for the diamondbacks they don't hit very well and they pitch great and really verron tire lineup to great degrees all about paul goldschmidt so in all reality they have the need the money you know they don't quite have the pockets that the dodgers do but in a situation like this and i don't know that you could keep manny in the desert but you could see they could plug mannini either shortstop is an upgrade over nickhamed or i think it'd be it even better fit at third base is upgrade over jacob over jake lion but they certainly could use the help and desperately need a nother bat they pitch their rear end zone so pitching is an issue there wanted a few teams that doesn't have to go into this trade deadline sweepstakes and try and get on which is a relief because it looks like the market for starting pitcher arms is crazy in the relief pitcher market is also going to get crazy by the deadline you know what the nationals and royals did aside for kelvin herrera trade the brad hand market the left these that the giants have if they decide to sell the marlins a narrow ray of of relievers as we said the padres have other relievers beyond brad hand i think the market the reds i think the market for relievers is going to get crazy especially as that starter market gets crazy and kim say you know what i'm just not paying that price now you'll get bidding wars for for relief pitchers and so the diamondbacks don't have to do any shopping for arms but they definitely need another back in a wide open american wide open national league and manny machado could be that the risk you run with arizona is are your rental there you bring him intel you'll find a way to bring them back to la he goes to philadelphia find a way to bring them back to philadelphia you know some of the other big market teams but you know arizona it's not a huge market team it's not one of those destinations and i'm not really sure that if you trade a lot of prospect capital for him that manny machado becomes anything more than a rental for the diamondbacks again that could be the case with any of these teams because it's clear he's going to he's going to test free agency and maybe in the three months that he's with you falls in love with your organization and we are but you know i look at the phillies then i look at the dodgers and i say well these are chiefs clearly with the resources and a good chance at keeping machado i look at teams like diamondbacks and the brewers i say indians even not so much fun typo around the mcaddo of trade sweepstakes and how the market setting up for him neck and it was just kind.
