"AP's sports and Mike Reeves, it was a frantic finish at the Indianapolis 500, our Tom McKay reports. Josef Newgarden used a one lap shootout to grab the lead from 2022 champ Marcus Ericsson to win the Indy 500. You know, I wasn't looking to take anyone else out of the race, but I was going to put my car on the line to win. And I was either going to win the race or I was going to end up in the wall.

Major League Baseball the rays win a wild one over the Dodgers in Tampa Bay, correspondent Steve Carney provides the details. The Tampa Bay Rays used a 7th inning RBI ground out by wander Franco to break a ten ten tie and defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11 to ten.

The Yankees used a 7 run third inning to defeat the Padres ten to 7, Aaron judge and Harrison Bader hit home runs to support winning pitcher Garrett Cole, who is now 6 and zero. This was a good team win today for sure. I mean, being able to kind of subdue them through the middle innings and keep the momentum.

Madrigal's two-run single lifts Cubs over Marlins 4-2
"Nick madrigal's two run 8th ending single was the game winning blow as the cubs defeated the Marlins four to two. I think any kid growing up dreams of, you know, those situations, you know, and trying to help the team win the last couple of innings and yeah, I mean, I definitely want to be the guy in those situations. Miguel Amaya added a pinch hit RBI single for his first big league hit giving the cubs some insurance, Keegan Thompson and relief picked up the victory, he improves the two and two as the cubs have taken the first two games in this series, and they've also moved one game back over 500.

"AP sports I'm time Miriam. It was a marathon day of sports on Monday, starting with a morning Major League Baseball game, and ending with two late night overtime games in the Stanley Cup playoffs. In between the NBA played two game twos in its opening round series in Philadelphia the 76ers maximized home court advantage defeating the next 96 84 as tyrese maxi led a defense that held the nest for just 35 second half points while scoring 33 himself. We were able to get started time we started when we needed them. Consecutive stops in a row, which led to fast breaks, led to easy buckets. Out west, the kings were beaming again, lighting up the warriors one 14 one O 6 as the air and Fox scored 24 to put Steve Kerr's defending champions in danger of becoming ex champions. We know we have to play better. But we will play better. We're these guys are champions. You saw what they did. It was a good playoff night for kings as the NHL's Los Angeles kings came from behind to stun the oilers four to three in game one on Alex I have follows overtime gold. It took two overtimes for the wild to beat the stars in Ryan Hartman's goal. The bruins said in NHL regular season record for victories and Boston started the postseason with a three one victory over the Panthers. Brad marchand scored what turned out to be the game winner. It's always good to start the first game with a win, but we have an accomplished anything yet.

MLB teams extend beer sales after pitch clock shortens games
"Thanks to the pitch clock, the action is moving much faster at Major League Baseball games, but it also means a little less time for fans to enjoy a frosty adult beverage. To combat that time crunch at least four teams, the Arizona Diamondbacks, Texas Rangers, Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers have extended alcohol sales through the 8th inning this season. Others, like the Miami Marlins and New York mets still have 7th inning cutoffs, but haven't ruled out making changes. Teams historically have stopped selling alcohol after the 7th inning.

"AP's sports on Tom maryam. Now that the college basketball season has ended, all hoops attention is focused on the NBA, as the pros wind down their regular season. A big final week Eastern Conference match up in Philadelphia as the 76ers kept alive their chance of edging the Celtics for the number two seed with a one O three one O one victory thanks to 52 points by Joel embiid, the third time he's hit the half century mark this season for Doc Rivers team. The man just scored half our points in the NBA game. And I'm biased, but the MVP race is over. The Bucs now have a magic number of ones that clinch the top spot in the east, as Giannis had a triple double and a one 41 28 victory over the wizards for coach Mike budenholzer. We just kind of go about our business. There's, you know, rarely is there a special message or anything. The heat hawks and raptors all one key games while the nets lost as those teams battle to avoid the playing games in the east next week. Out west the warriors and Lakers also had important victories as they look to avoid the west play in games. Baseball, the defending national league champion Phillies became the last team to win a game this season, topping the Yankees four to one, as Kyle schwarber built in the 200th home run of his career. Cool thing, definitely definitely definitely a cool thing, but happy about the win.

"marlins" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Lastly, just following up on John Angelo doing a rare address to the media and fumbling it. John Henry of the Red Sox, who we mentioned because he is on the new economic reform committee. He sort of did the same thing, except he's not making himself available to the press in person. He just conducted some email interviews with a couple of outlets, including the athletic, and he tried to argue that the fans are getting it all wrong and the Red Sox really do spend, which of course they do relative to some teams, and that they haven't cheaped out, but they also won't spend Steve Cohen money. Maybe the most amusing part was where he protested too much about being booed, Jen McCaffrey, who was conducting the Q&A said the booing at winter weekend was hard to ignore. Did you recognize that that level of frustration existed from some of the fan base and does it motivate you to do anything differently and Henry responded again via email so he had time to construct this response. There is a false narrative surrounding the club. It really took hold in 2022. There were even false reports of booing at Fenway Park during the winter classic. I think those factors and losing Xander de San Diego were the biggest factors. Those are the fans he would believe are the least likely to try to shout us down, but it happened. Did anyone report the standing ovation at the end, so there he was talking about the winter weekend event where Red Sox brass got booed and the booze were then edited out of the nest and rebroadcast, but the winter classic hockey game at Fenway Park it was widely reported that Henry was booed. I saw a video of some heckling. I didn't see a video of the booing, but I believe that it happened given how many people reported it, and he's saying those were false reports, which is kind of amusing because last month, when the Red Sox signed Raphael Devers to their extension and held a press conference, which Henry was not at team chairman Tom Werner was, and he rejected the idea that the booing was what prompted the red sacks to sign Devers because there's negotiations were already in progress, but he didn't deny that the booing occurred, and he even said, by the way, owners get booed, and that's part of the deal. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. So maybe Werner should talk to Henry about the booing. I don't think owners are dissembling or blundering any more than they ever did, but I think fans and media members have gotten more skeptical and more likely to interrogate them and hold them to account, which could be why some of them have all but stopped talking to the press and the public, which in the cases of Angeles and Henry might not be a bad idea. Also, Ken Rosenthal wrote a column about Corbyn burns and arbitration. It's a broader look at the way arbitration went down this winter, which was not in the favor of the players. They won 6 cases and lost 13, which is the worst they've done in a normal arbitration year in about a decade and Ken ran through the reasons why, but it sounds like this is contributing further to tensions between players and owners that could again come to a head after the CBA expires. There is some sentiment in favor of doing away with the arbitration system and replacing it with some sort of set system where players would get paid automatically based on stats, which was something that was floated during the recent round of bargaining and seems like something that the players will not go for, although Bo Bichette, who recently avoided arbitration and a hearing by signing an extension with the Blue Jays that bought out his remaining arbiters. He called arbitration and incredibly flawed process, one that isn't very good for the game and he added there's no reason to pit owners and executives against players just no reason. Well, maybe there's a better way to do it, but on the whole, I think arbitration has helped players and the reason to pit owners and executives against players in some way at least is that it's your typical labor versus management relationship owners and executives want to pay players less. Players want to make more. It's inherently adversarial to some degree. But your relationship with this podcast is not adversarial. In fact, it could be the opposite of that.

"marlins" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Yeah, Yuri, I've seen him, I got CM pitch, I think, three times total over the last two years, and each time I watched him, I was blown away. I mean, when you walk in, he's 19 years old. He doesn't turn 20 until I think April 15th, I believe it's his birthday. And he was solid and double-A last year. He's 6 8, 220 pounds, one of the few guys who I've seen who when standing next to saint Alcantara makes sandy Alcantara looks small. And he has a similar repertoire to sandy. He has fastball hits the upper 90s. He has a change up that I believe I saw once the sky reports yeah, I believe it was like a 50 or 60% swing in this right with the change up last year pitching all the entire season in double-A. He has a slider that he's working on that he's trying to tighten up a little bit and he has a curveball and he has a curve ball that's been a good breaking pitch for him as well. So he has a four pitch mix. He's not even 20 years old yet and he's looking like he'll get to the big league at some point this year. He wants to be in the big leagues for opening day. I just with the way that they're with the options they have in terms of their starting pitching, I don't see that happening, but I feel like at some point down the road this season we're going to see Yuri Perez make his debut. And yeah, he's from the way the way I best like describing sandy Alcantara when I talked with him the other day and asked him what it's like watching Yuri a 19. Sandy goes, I was nowhere near this level when I was 19. I was in high a, I was a decent prospect. I was throwing hard, but I wasn't throwing like that. I wasn't throwing the way that he's doing it. I wasn't as mature with understanding my pitch mix and what I need to do with which batters at which time as Yuri is now. And then now with Yuri basically being understanding and saying to take him under his weighing, you're seeing the dynamic of Yuri now understanding what he has to do between starts to be ready and be more mature on that front to be ready to go when his name is called. So to wrap up, what would constitute a successful season for the Marlins in 2023 at the peak league level and beyond? I would say for 2023 and it's going back to what they've been trying to say every year and they've been unsuccessful either they need to be competitive. I don't necessarily think they need to make the playoffs this year. I feel like they need to be in the hunt because I mean you look at this the division. They could get 85 wins have their first winning record in a full season and goodness knows how long and still finished fourth because of just how stack the mets, the Phillies and the braves are. But if they're able to be in that 500 cups cost hopefully above it and say, look, we're here and with the way the roster set up basically every main guy they have, whether it's guys who they have been working with for years or guys they acquired this off season. Basically all of their main guys are under control beyond this year. So if they're able to show what they're able to do this year and be in the fight and then continue the build on the group that they've already assembled, that basically gives them that stepping stone that they were hoping to have earlier in the brute Sherman ownership era and finally show the optimism whether it happens that's obviously still to be determined, whether jazz worked on center helps and that helps them, that's to be determined, but they have the pieces there. If a few things, if a few dominoes fall in their direction, they have the potential to finally start turning the corner. It's just a matter of turning that potential into the actual results. Well, you can find out whether they succeed in doing that by following Jordan's coverage all season long at the Miami Herald. You can also find George McPherson on Twitter at J McPherson 1126. Jordan, thanks again. Thanks so much, Ben. Thanks so much, Meg, always great chatting with you both. All right, I'm going to give you a pass blast here. It's just me. We recorded early this week, so we didn't yet have the past blast from our past past consultant when I was recording with Meg. This past blast comes from 1971 and from David Lewis and architectural historian and baseball researcher based in Boston and we're back to the late eccentric X a's owner Charlie Finley. This time, David writes, Finley is arguing balls and strikes. He's moved on from gold bases at this point. In 1971, Charlie Finley once again brought a proposed rule change to Major League Baseball on March 16th, 1971, Finley's Oakland a's played Cleveland in a spring training game featuring the experimental rule, a count with three balls and three strikes. The plan clearly did not go well as a UPI article reporting on the story ran with the headline, baseball's experiment doomed for oblivion, Finley hoped that the new count would speed the game up, but in practice the rule had the exact opposite effect, leading to an increased number of walks in what was referred to as tedious games of pitch and catch. During the trial run, the two teams produced 23 total walks in a game one ten to 7 by Cleveland as another failed attempt at baseball's long history of trying to speed up the game thinly abandoned this idea shortly thereafter. We get this sort of question or suggestion sometimes too, just changing the number of balls or strikes. And there might be better ways you could do it. But I prefer to try to fix things within the current system of four balls and three strikes in finlay, of course, supported a pitch clock too, so he was ahead of his time in trying to speed things along. Also, I have a second pass blast for you here. This is one I came up with and really I probably should have done it in episode 1970, but it's still applies to 1971. One of the members of our Facebook group recently posted a thread and said the MLB logo before the 1969 batter logo that is still in use today.
"marlins" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"And I knew that the again, for me, it's just a matter of him getting to work with Nelson ire junior that first season when they acquired him in the startling Marte trade in 2021. The Marlins knew that that stretch that he was with them to close out the season probably wasn't going to be pretty, but they wanted him to make all of his starts with the Marlins after that trade up at the big league level. So Mel Seymour's junior could get a close eye on him throughout those entire two months. So that way they could have an off season plan and they could have been communicating and working throughout those two months compared to say let him go the triple-A be a starter the full-time and then start everything fresh in 2022. And I feel like it worked out. I mean, he went from a 6 four four ERA in the 12 star teammate after getting acquired in 2021 at the trade deadline to a three three two last year in the 18 star team aid strikeouts were off walks were down and he started to figure everything out with his secondary pitches. That was, again, he needed those secondary pitches to work in order to have his fastball playback as fastball guy. It really hard in 2021. He improved on his metrics with that pitch because of the slider and the change up and being able to use those pitches to better sequence his fastball. As for Trevor Rogers, it was really rough to watch him last year and emotionally it hit him really hard mid season. I think it was the game against when he was at the reds where I think it was like a third or four consecutive that outing. And he was just like, I don't know what's going wrong. I don't know what I can do. Every time I try to fix something, it just seems like I can get this thing to work and then something I was working well completely regressed. And he spent a lot of introspection this off season, he's feels more comfortable now when we talked with him earlier this week when at the start of camp, he came in looking in better shape he went to a facility in Tampa to get basically an overall diagnosis of his body of where his strengths and weaknesses are in, found out that there are things going on with his hip that potentially was impacting his pitching. So he's been working on that for the last month and a half or so. He's actually trying to add a two seam to go into his repertoire as well to go with the forcing fastball, the change up which has been one of the top pages to end the slide or that he began developing last year. So he's trying to add a fourth pitch to his mix as well too. Also not be as recognizable or as easy to decipher with his pitches and the sequencing because when the slider didn't work last year, he was basically a fastball change of starter, which you have two pitch in the big leagues. We all know how that's going to work out. So if he's able to get a third quality pitch, whether it's the two seam or the slider to work this year, I feel like that will help him with the confidence and being able to be better on the mound in terms of how we attack hitlers. I want to talk about two injured guys, one of whom you've already brought up, which is max Meyer to see sort of what the anticipated timeline for a potential 2023 return would be for him from Tommy John, and then also asked where sixto Sanchez is in his recovery. He obviously had a number of injuries over the last couple of years that have kept him off the mounding games. Where is he at in a potential rehab and what might we see from him in 2023? Yeah, so max Meyer just started playing catch about a couple of weeks ago. He's had three or four different sessions where he's like tossing nothing major but it's very unlikely I would think that he would be pitching into the big league level in 2023. I'm trying to just going off the timeline from last year when Jake either another one of their top prospects, he had Tommy he ended up having Tommy John surgery and happened about he underwent about the same time the max Meyer did. And he ended up throwing off the mound, I think it was on backfields about a month or two with a month or two left in the minor league season. The Marlins are going to be cautious with max Meyer, they still feel like he's one of their top guys, whether it is in the rotation or as a potential weight in and guy as a lady in reliever. They're still figuring out exactly where he fits, but they know that he is one of their top guys, especially again, fastball hits upper 90s, the slider is a very good swing in this pitch. So they want to make sure that he is completely ready when they bring him back. And with 6 O Sanchez, he's already thrown about a half dozen bullpens over the course of the last couple weeks before getting too Jupiter for spring training. He's dropped about 45 pounds, which he hopes will help lessen the burden on his shoulder, which has been the main issue for him these last two years between, again, since we haven't seen him in an actual game, excluding a couple spring training games since the playoffs that playoff series against the braves in 2020. So from what pitching coach mills died by junior told me at the start of camp that they anticipate 6 dough being back pitching in games, obviously I would, at some point this year, obviously my obviously started the minor league level to make sure he's built up. He's confident and that there are no hiccups, no setbacks with him, but they are envisioning him at some point making it back to back to the mound. Hopefully with a big league club and if he's able to make it so they could potentially be a very important X Factor for this team, because again, it just adds yet another talented arm to this to this team. They're working in as a starter to prep him to be a starter, but they have had conversations with him, him similar to what their thought process with max Meyer, he could potentially be a late inning guy, they could try to move him to closer if they feel like his arm can rebound fast enough to be able to pitch the back to back days in the shorter doses. That's still another thing. They have to watch because they were doing all their prep work within the last two years on a starter's routine as starters rotation and he was still having hiccups with that with having the time off between his work sessions. So they have, again, they're going to be cautious with him, but they are optimistic that he will be able to get to get back on the mountain at some point this season. And speaking of pitchers who may arrive at some point this season, you just wrote a story about Yuri Perez and his being mentored by San die contra, so get us hyped for yori's arrival whenever that may be.

"Head. I didn't even think about that. Oh my goodness. Thanks for that. I was so sore, but I'm repeat in my head sits that answer, but I gotta try to put that out of my head and ask about the rest of the outfield picture. We talked about jazz, but I wanted to ask about the other guys because Brian de la Cruz, I think, has been kind of a popular breakout pick by some people this spring, so make the case maybe if you agree with that possibility and then the other guys out there, you know, it's solar. It's Jesus Sanchez. It's a Garcia, I guess the layers more of it the H at this point, but those guys were kind of the core of the disappointing Marlins bats last year. So what are the expectations for possible bounce backs from that trio? Yeah, so obviously over C is in as of right now as penciled in for right. Jazz's pencil infra center, Jorge soler, primarily, it looks like he's going to be the DH. They want to try to keep him as healthy as possible. Again, he and jazz both went down about the same time last year. I think it was a day or two apart from each other in late June. And they're offense went from being about middle of the road at that point across all of them. They'll be which with that starting pitching staff that they had, that's really what they needed. And it went from middle of the road, averaged about four and a half runs a game to averaging. I think it was 2.2 or 2.3 runs per game over the final three months of the season, which went from being good enough for the starting pitching staff to being dead last in baseball over the final stretch without jazz and solar. So if they can keep so layer healthy, they can keep jazz healthy, those are the two ideals. Left field, Brian day la Cruz, I would agree. I've been high on him since he made his debut when the Marlins acquired him from Houston in the Amy Garcia trade back in 2021. I liked his makeup. Again, he was back to ball skills. He had the look that those two months that he was up there in 2021. You saw he regressed a good bit in 2022 and then came back strong at the very end. I believe I remember correctly, he led the Marlins in home runs from the time he got called back up toward at the end of the season through the end of the season. It's just a matter of how can he put that together over the course of a full season. And maybe it's him platooning with Jesus Sanchez. Again, dela Cruz is a righty, Jesus Sanchez is a lefty. They have their bench spots they need to fill. They need to figure that out. And if both of them are more profile for the corner outfield, then center. So if they're at the more defensively comfortable position and potentially in a platoon spot, that could help both him and Jesus Sanchez sort of become those guys at the Marlins were hoping they could be with, again, they both have. They both have power. They both have contact in their swings and they will be playing in a more defensively correct position for them if they're in if they're in left compared to the two of them playing senator like they did last year, which was basically out of necessity when the Marlins didn't acquire center field in the off season before 2021. So right now I would think de la Cruz probably is a slight edge on Jesus Sanchez if it's one over the other, but right now I think the platoon is probably going to be the most logical fit for the Marlins there. When I looked back at our top prospect list for Miami last year, you won't be surprised to know that a lot of the top slots are occupied by pitchers. We can talk about some of them in a minute, but when you think about the guys who went down with injury last year, some of their attempts to reinforce the lineup this year among the position players they have in the miners, are there any who strike you as likely to play a big league role at some point this year? Yeah, I would say it's two guys who they acquired in this off season Jacob and I are who they got from the Dodgers and the Miguel Rojas trade and Xavier Edwards who they got from the rays in addition to JT Charlotte back in November. Those two were both in triple-A last year. Amaya is defensively looking like he can hold his own at shortstop, Edwards is a little bit more play some second place, some short play some third. He can move around and fill one of those infield spots. Those would be the top two that I'm keeping my eye on and then also in the infield Jordan Grosjean who they got in the trade with the Blue Jays at the trade deadline for Anthony bass and Zach pop. He debuted last year played play I think it was about two weeks in the final two weeks of the season was all a third base. He would likely stay at third base if he came up. And those would be the three in terms of infielders, outfield, I think they have enough options between the guys who they have if one of the corner outfielders goes down if let's just say obviously Garcia gets hurt, they can move one of dela Cruz or saints just to right field solar could play left field if needed. And then Peyton burdick I think will be the first call from the minor leagues and then Gerard turned out to be on right after him. So they have a little bit more depth there. All of those guys with the exception of a Mayan Edwards have played the big league level. So the Marlins have an understanding of what they can do, what their strengths, what their weaknesses are, granted, it was all small sample size about. I think none of them have more than two months, but it was enough for them to start working with them this off season two, try to get them ready for if they have those scenarios where they need it. Talk about two starting pitchers who went in different directions in 2022. Another popular breakout pick this year is Jesus luzardo, but I think you could argue that he already broke out, certainly relative to his 2021. It's just a question of durability with him as it always is. So he was the good news, the bad news last season was Trevor Rogers, who regressed hard from his breakout in 2021. So give us the outlook for each of those guys is one going to head up the other head out or can they both be successful? Yeah, I think again, Jesus lazaro is the one that outside of Samuel Connor is the one I'm keeping my eye on the most out of the Marlins current projected rotation just if you have a lefty like him again 120 strikeouts in a hundred and a third innings last year made 18 starts obviously missed a lot of time early with that, I believe it was the forearm injury. He missed about two months there, but once he came back, he just, every time he was on the mound, he looked good.

"As for qua do, that was in addition to basically, from my perspective was get a veteran guy to be in your rotation and allow them the flexibility to use some of their starting pitching depth that they had to acquire more hitters than they obviously did that by shortly after acquiring signing qua do cherry Pablo Lopez to Minnesota for Luis arrives. So that that move was more of a add someone so you're not fully losing your rotation you have your MLB ready starters and being able to have some more flexibility to go from a strength in order to acquire to improve on the improve on the weakness. And that move obviously requires the shift that was mentioned of gestures on junior moving to center field. I'm curious sort of what the communication was with his own ahead of that decision and what your sense is of how excited he is to play out there and what the club's expectations are for him. Yeah, so from all three angles of it from jazz Chisholm junior himself to manage your skip Schumacher and general manager came in, the general consensus was jazz came up to them shortly after the new year when the Marlins had made very minimal moves and said to them, look, if you need me to go in the center field, so we can get other guys who can fill spots in the infield. I'll do it. Whatever it takes for the team to win, I'll do it. So jazz approached them before they signed the guru and before they acquired a rise and said, if these moves make sense to improve us, let's do it. I'll go out to center field. I'll start prepping now and he started working with first base coach outfielder coach John Jay right from the jump after the calendar flipped January. And they're optimistic about what he can do out there. Obviously, from just the pure athlete side, he has the tools and the potential and the talent to do it. But in the same vein, he's never played in the outfield before in a professional setting. So it'll be interesting to see the adjustments, especially for a guy like jazz, a guy who has the flair and has the affinity for wanting the big plays to see how he balances when a ball is going towards a warning track, what he tries to do when it comes to the quote unquote robbing a home run or how he balances a ball that's that falls in ahead of him, how much does he dive? How much is he left to ball sit in front of him, let it settle for a single. And also just the health component of it because again, he's coming off of knee surgery and a stress fracture in his lower back. He's had hamstring issues. So to see how he's working to make sure he can stay healthy while learning a new position while trying to be the basically the top hither on this team, it's a lot of fact there are a lot of factors that he has to deal with and work with an adjust to the spraying. So that's going to be one of the main storylines that we follow all throughout camp and throughout the season. Yeah, it's really a big season for him. We talked about him being the MLB the show, cover model, maybe somewhat surprisingly, but sort of banking on him becoming a bigger star, maybe. And he certainly could, and he took a huge step forward offensively last season before he got hurt, of course. But right, now he has to handle the position switch and it seems like he has the physical attributes of someone who could succeed at this conversion, but it's always kind of a risk to take your franchise cornerstone on the position player side or player you're hoping will be at least and then have him make a mid career transition that not that many players make and then coming off of injury as well. So is there sort of any expectation for what he'll be working on offensively or is it just trying to consolidate the gains that he made last year and could he be an extension candidate? Yeah, I think it's more of the consolidation just when he was on the field and when he was healthy, what he was doing on offense worked. So if that isn't broken, why try to fix it, the emphasis right now is seeing how quickly he can adjust and get ready for center field. And work on that as much as you can without letting the offensive production drop in terms of an extension candidate. The Marlins haven't discussed anything on that front yet. And what I think they're trying to do is, I think they want to see him for a full season to see what if he can play a full season and again, only played 60 games last year. Only play, I think it was about 90 something the year before. If he can put together a full year and show what he can do, then I think a discussions will start and also remember, he still pre arbitration. He has under team patrol for four more years, so they do have time on that front before they have to really start worrying about it. I mean, sandy Alcantara, they started with him right after his first or the off season that he was going into arbitration. So that could be a pattern that they follow, see what, see what they have, and then go through everything. And then, again, I think the showing his health is going to be the main factor that determines when and how quickly they decide if they're going to offer him an extension. You brought up a contra, it feels silly to ask, what can a guy who was the unanimous young winner and posted an ERA in a fit below three due to improve what might we expect from him? But what might we expect from him this year? Because, you know, it wasn't like he was an unknown good pitcher from the year before, but he really did take a step forward in 2022. Correct, yeah, the main thing on the sandy Alcantara front is dealing with face runners last year he, if I have the numbers correctly, 24 of the 28 potential base dealers against him last year were successful in stealing bases.

"All right we're back and it's time to talk about the Miami Marlins with the beat writer for the Miami Marlins and the Miami Herald Jordan McPherson. Hello Jordan. Hello bang hello made great to be with you guys again. How's everything been on your end? Oh, pretty good for the last two years. Since we had you had to talk about the marbles last time, probably. So yeah, hard to sub up at a sentence, but okay, so I wanted to ask if you could settle a question for us. We wondered when the Marlins hired skip Schumacher to be their new manager. His name is skip, or at least that's what everyone calls him. And often you call a manager skip, even if he's not named skip. So how does one refer to skip Schumacher or address skip shoe boxer? Is it just skip? It has been just skipping it, honestly, it makes it a lot easier to know that that's been the nickname that he has and now it fits the role. So it's been made of a very easy transition on that front. Okay, we were wondering, because some types of you give someone a nickname, you use their baseball nickname or whatever, but in his case, it's just so happens that it's the same name, so I guess you can't call him Jared. Jared Michael Schumacher would be the real name, apparently. But I don't know what anyone called him Jared last since we're on the subject. Tell us a little bit about your early impressions of Schumacher and why the Marlins decided that he would be the guy and how the addition of Schumacher and a new coaching staff might change things from the Mattingly era. Yeah, very impressed with my first the first week up here with skip Schumacher and just the few interactions I've had with him from his hiring to what we saw when we got to talk with him when our meetings too. Now with seeing him on the field for a week with players, he brings a lot of energy. He has a winning pedigree, obviously someone who was career was primarily through the cardinal system, understands the winning culture. He won the World Series as a player, and he was one of those guys who wasn't the big name when he was on his roster. He was the one of a bench guy, a starter, but not the big name, obviously, played with Yadier Molina, played with Alan Moore. He was a guy. And he understands what it takes to have to work to succeed at the big league level and he's trying to instill that type of mindset into the Marlins Clubhouse. He's been very high energy, very positive eyes, which first week spring training is always very positive. Positive optimistic outlook, but he's just, it brings a new sense and a new just a new aura around the Clubhouse and around the organization, especially after having, again, Don nailing was the longest ten year manager of Martin's history was here for 7 years. And they just, they wanted to go in a new direction, bring someone in who could just bring a spark and so far it seems like skip is bringing that. Now it's just a matter of seeing how will that happens and how it translates once camp is over once games begin and how he and his staff are able to work with this slightly retooled roster to try to get the Marlins to be competitive in a very competitive and at least. Yeah, I wanted to ask you about that before we get into any of the individual moves or additions that they made this off season, which is, how do they understand themselves within the context of their division? Because you're right, it is an incredibly competitive division. They came into the soft season needing a lot of offense having strong pitching. They have more offense. They have slightly less strong pitching now. So I think we can talk about some of those individual moves, but where do they view themselves in their competitive cycle right now? Yeah, they understand that the NL east is the NL east. Obviously, three teams that made the playoffs last year two teams with a hunter wins and then the team that didn't get to the hundred win mark may all the way to the World Series and all three of those teams are still the top three teams of the division, but the Marlins are also in the mindset of they know that they need to be more competitive. They need to try to find ways to contend which for them starts with their pitching. Obviously they can have another strong gear from the rotation and have more steady offense and find ways for their key guys to stay healthy. They feel like they can be an dark horse team in the NL east and the moves that they made were for more than just this year. Basically every person who they acquired throughout this off season is under contract or under team control for more than one year. So even if they don't make the full jump and are able to leap over any of those top three teams, they still have all of the pieces for 2024 some for 2025 and 2026. So they are going to be able to use this as a true building block to try to get as much established this year and then also find ways to improve on it as the years progress. So let's talk about some of the moves they made at the moment made some trades. We will talk about those, but as for the free agent market, they were not very successful in the free agent market last off season. Their additions didn't do great for the most part. And they didn't really go big game hunting. This winter, there was a lot of money spent a lot of big free agent signed to big deals and for the marrow ends when it comes to major league contracts for free agents. It's just gene Segura and Johnny cueto, so if you want to talk to us about those additions, interested in hearing why they added those two, but also whether they were in on anyone else that you know of, whether they considered spending more money than they actually did, which I guess is kind of the perennial question when it comes to the Marlins. Yeah, so with gene Segura, he was he in a digital Luis rise and we're going to talk about him later. The emphasis for them was to add contact tailors to balance out their lying up a little bit more last year when they signed horizon layering off sale Garcia there that was to add power to line up and obviously that did not manifest in the way that the Marlins wanted. Obviously Garcia had a down year horizon layer was mired by injuries, but was on a 30 home run pace by the time he got hurt at the end of June. They were hoping that Segura and arise they would balance out line up that if healthy has a contact power guy in just Chisholm junior who can do a little bit of everything. Those two guys have contact guys, table sirs toward the top of the line up and then hope that horror solar and obstacle Garcia are able to rebound and Gary Cooper is able to be a fixture in the middle of their lineup as well. Obviously the ballpark they have that they play 81 games in every year. It's not hither friendly. So if they're able to get guys who are able to be more doubles guys, more gap to gap guys who can get on base and then have RBI producers drive them in and let those guys who get on base user speed to get in the scoring position after getting on base, that was sort of the mindset there.

"Yeah, the two, the two most likely names, aside from terrain, are both outfielders and their guys that have been on the radar for a little bit, sell free lick and Joey Weimar to guys who could not be more opposite in terms of the way they look, the way they play, you know, self free lick is about 5 ten left handed contact hitter. He's exactly, in my opinion, the kind of guy that the brewers need in their lineup, a guy who just figures out a way to get on base, scrapper, his time goes along. I think he'll develop a little bit more power. He's a guy who can play across the outfield and he's not going to hurt you. Then you have weemer who is this big strapping 6 5, 220 pound guy who can run like the wind has a cannon for an arm, you know, kind of a prototype right Fielder. And a guy who, if everything goes right and hit 35 homers in a year, a lot of early on in his professional career, there were a lot of comps between him and him and hunter Pence, both in physical stature and looks and just kind of the way they play the game. I think he's a little bit farther off than free lick is. I think free lick will be depending on how the outfield shakes out. I think Bruce fans will see free like in the first couple months of the season, and it's incredible the rise that he had in the minors last year. I mean, he started in high a and he was in the discussion by the end of the year of getting a call up. Kind of unusual, of course. So those are the two guys that really pop to the forefront in my mind as guys that could make an impact in camp on the pitching side. You've got a couple of relievers Abner urban who definitely needs more seasoning, but he's a guy who gets triple digits with his fastball that always will interest people and interesting teams. And then there's a little bit less heralded right hander by the end of cam Robinson who led all the minor leagues and saves last year with 25 his velocity is picked up, you know, he's got a good change of pace as well and a guy who got himself on the radar. He's also on the 40 man, which is which makes a difference too in terms of how quickly teams will call a guy up and how easy it is for them to do it. So that's two guys on the pitching side that I would mention as well. But this year may be more than any other in recent memory, the brewers will be impacted by a number of their higher ceiling, bigger name prospects. So in closing, how should the brewers or how do the brewers define a successful season for themselves in 2023 and for the fans who, as you noted, are in some cases dissatisfied with the way things have been going, what would it take to get popular opinion back on the brewer's side? As currently constructed, I think it would definitely be a major disappointment if they fail to make the playoffs again. I think wild card spot is the absolute basement of what they should be shooting for. I think a central division title is certainly within their grasp. It looks right now. It's like it's between the brewers and the Cardinals with much improved cubs team. Probably having a little bit of saying that as well. So from a fan's perspective, of course, you know, they should be in the World Series every year. We know that's not realistic, but this is an ownership group and this was bandied about after the hater Trey last year and it's almost become a kind of a rallying cry for frustrated fans that this is an ownership group that wants continual continual bites of the Apple as far as the postseason goes. This is an ownership group that does not want to go

"And educated guess would be that he heard them talk about, you know, his ERA over the last 6 weeks was 6.75 or he struggled down the stretch against the cubs and the pirates. He did not pitch particularly well against kind of the lesser lights in the division. You know, so I don't think there's any way possible that any team could have any kind of validity or that argument would hold any water that he was, you know, he was the reason for holding them back from the postseason. I do know that Corbin burns has a pretty good pulse on kind of where the franchise is in the fans eyes since the hater trade and that's to say not in a really good place. You know, you start with the unpopular trade of Josh hater to the Padres, which was looked at as almost exclusively a cost cutting move by the fans. And then you move into the off season and you've got the brewers really barely spending any money in the free Asian, market, bringing on wade Miley, Brian Anderson, really the two, the two only notable additions. For not much money and then you come into camp and the storyline coming into camp was the brewers are seeking hundreds of millions of dollars of public tax money now to help upgrade the ballpark and then so you've got the fan base pretty riled up as it is. And then you throw this into this charm into the water and the sharks certainly attack. So it burns knew what he was doing. I think it was very calculated. You know, he knew the sentiment would be behind him and it certainly was. Based on all the social media that I read, you know, fans are really irate with this organization and a particular the owner, which is amazing to me as somebody who grew up in Milwaukee and Wisconsin in the 80s and 90s, remembering all the loss seasons where the brewers had no money and spent nothing and just spun their wheels and were really bad missing the playoffs for the first time in 5 years last year like they did. It said sent the fans kind of into a tailspin and it was an ugly finish to the season, but I think the fans kind of need to gain a little perspective as to as to what they're dealing with with the brewers which has been a small market team that has punched above its weight class and no small part due to Mark adana's willingness to spend beyond a small market team's means, so we'll see where it goes from here. If the brewers get off to a good start, they started 32 and 18 last season and best 50 games start in team history and it was all rainbows and sunshine, maybe another start like that this season will help kind of put some of that ill will to rest. I want to talk about burns as a pitcher and some of those moves you mentioned, but I think before we do any of that, we should probably focus on one of the other names in your last answer, which is Matt Arnold. I think a lot of people were surprised at the end of October last year when David stern's announced he was stepping away and was taking on an advisory role but wouldn't be serving as the president of baseball ops anymore. What change has that sort of made in the front office? What have you observed about the early part of the Matt Arnold era that we might see informed decisions that the team makes going forward? I think by and large Matt Arnold has followed the same path, I think that David stern's would have followed if he remained in that role, meaning heavy emphasis on analytics, you know, listening to their baseball apps people, you know, making moves that aren't necessarily going to excite a lot of people in a lot of areas. They have a very specific prototype for what they're looking for in pictures, for instance, and they love ground ball guys. So they spent the winter picking up guys that induce those both in the bullpen and lengthening out their starting pitching depth. So from that perspective, not much has changed. As far as kind of the way Matt Arnold approaches the job, he's definitely more visible. I think a little bit a little bit more comfortable in the public eye, David stern's was, I wouldn't call him reclusive, but was not visible around that much, was not available to us as much as Martin met Arnold has been, and, you know, it's not to say that it's not been a transition for the brewers or for Matt, you know, going from being Robin to stern's Batman for all those years here, you know, that allowed him to kind of fly under the radar. So to speak, but now that he is the man and he's sitting in the chair and, you know, he's the one who's getting the phone call, the phone calls from Mark adana, you know, it's certainly it's been a change for him, but as far as the way he deals with us and our accessibility to him and him doing his best to explain why the team is doing what it's doing, he's been great in that regard and it's been nice to kind of let that relationship blossom between media and Mac, because he really is a good guy.

"Usage is, but there's just always going to be that concern with the tournament that takes place at this time of year and there isn't really a better time of year, you know, like if you were to do it after the season, a lot of players wouldn't participate then either there's no great time to do it because players were always worried and teams will always be worried that the guys are going to get hurt and there's always a risk anytime you're playing you could get hurt. Yeah or you know the other option is the teams just aren't patriotic, you know. Yeah. I'm a rebel roaster. I'm a rapper. I mean, you see people say that. Like Jerry Manuel, who is the bench coach for the U.S. team, said in a Ken Rosenthal piece a few weeks ago, I thought people would break their necks to play for their country. Go to the other countries and they're begging to play and that's not necessarily true. I don't think they have issues recruiting pitchers too, but again. And for the same reasons, right? It's the same as entities being like, hey now. Yeah. It is funny that teams seem to be not that they want to be clear. To be clear, not that they want their eyes to get hurt when they're pitching for them. But there is sort of a seeming acceptance of the risk when it is in service of the club, but when it comes to other entities, they're like, no, there's no thank you. No, thank you. Right. Yeah, 'cause if you get hurt in your own team's camp, then I guess it's well, what are we going to do? Injuries are inevitable. But if you get hurt in a pitching in the WBC, then your team and your team's fans are always going to think, well, would that have happened if they hadn't been there? And so even though you're going to get some number of injuries regardless, if it happens there, then there's always the what if and you kind of regret or you might have regrets and it's sort of silly, but inevitable. So really, it's other tips there. I mentioned Luis Castillo from ber Valdez is another one for the Dominican Republic who at one point was slated to pitch for them and then ultimately didn't. And with valdes and with Castillo, like sometimes, it's framed as like a mutual decision. The team and the player kind of came to this decision together. And so you always wonder how is the team leaning on the player not to participate, right? And they'll be tells the teams like we want players to participate. It's for the good of the tournament and the sport, but you kind of wonder what gets said like they can't say you can't play in less, I guess you were on the 60 men IL, maybe the previous season, but you kind of wonder and players like they've got money at stake and contracts and walk years and everything. And so you can totally understand why players wouldn't participate. I'm definitely not knocking anyone who doesn't. It's slightly saps my enthusiasm for the tournament, I guess, when good players don't play, particularly good pictures. I just, you know, it's such a, it's such a strange job, Ben pitching. You know, 'cause like, you gotta do it at least some to avoid getting hurt. But if you do it too much, you know, it can really backfire on you. So what a difficult what a difficult needle to thread. Yes, it can be quite hazardous to your health and breaking news. Yeah. Right, and it seems like the strategy more and more is just like pitch less pitched fewer innings and that'll help and ultimately it doesn't really help some guys, but that other guys, yeah, maybe they don't pitch enough or maybe they're pitching fewer innings, but they're all max effort innings and maybe that's just as bad for you if not worse. So conundrum. Yeah, we'll do a WBC preview of some sort, I think before the tournament starts and so I don't want to dampen anyone's enthusiasm because there's still a lot to be excited about. Yeah. I'm looking forward to it. But I think the absence of elite pitching on a lot of teams, that just makes me more psyched for team Japan because the Japanese team pitching is so good. Especially the starting rotation where you have Otani and Darvish and then you have sasaki and Yamamoto. I mean, this might be like, this might be like the four best pictures in the tournament. I don't know. I'd have to survey all the other rosters, which I haven't that carefully. But I might take any of those four guys over any of the American pitchers. So that is just a amazing group. Yeah, that is nasty. I'm looking forward to seeing those kids. And I guess we should say bullpens probably matter a lot too when it comes to a tournament like this. Starters aren't stretched out at this point anyway and you don't care as much about innings and durability. So there's some good bullpen arms on the American team and other rosters too. So that makes up for it somewhat. But it's tough. Everyone's protective of their pitching and pitchers are protective of themselves and I wish there were some way that they could all feel confident about participating, but I think this is inevitable and understandable. Yeah, yeah. So we have a preview pod for you all today. We're going to talk about Christian Yelich's two teams, I guess. I always try to come up with some way to yeah, what a nice little unifying theme. Yeah, there's not always a neat little theme, but we're going to talk about the Milwaukee Brewers and then we're going to talk about the Miami Marlins, so talking to Todd Rosie aka about the brewers, and Jordan McPherson about the marwan's in just a moment. There have been some finance updates and you want to talk, talk finances for a moment. Sure, but before we do that, I remembered the other thing that I wanted to talk to you about. Oh, sure. Okay.
"marlins" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"I make rally a fangraphs and I am joined as always by Ben limburg of the ringer and how are you? Not bad, how are you? I'm not bad, you know? You know what's kind of bad? The U.S. rotation for the WPC? Yeah, how about that? Have you looked at this starting staff lately? It's not the greatest. It has lost some notable arms of late. It certainly has, yeah, the most recent being Clayton Kershaw, who was disappointed not to be on this team Nestor Cortes also dropped out due to injury. So now you have this 6 man rotation on the American WBC team, Adam Wainwright, Brady singer lancelin, Merrill Kelly, miles Michaelis, and Kyle Freeland. Yeah. Not the greatest group. And I guess that's really nothing new because often it's trouble to get pictures to pitch and WBC. I mean, I guess the ace for the American team last time around was Marcus stroman, right? So it's just often tough to get the top arms to participate, but I was curious to see just how this U.S. WBC rotation would stack up to just individual team rotations in terms of projections for 2023. Obviously the WBC team doesn't have to play a full season, so it's sort of a silly exercise, but if the U.S. WBC team were just a regular major league team, their rotation would be 11th. Just compared to just the other teams. That's just looking at the top 6 pitchers on every team's starting pitcher, depth chart. So it would go Yankees rangers, mets brewers, Phillies, braves, raised Padres, angels, Dodgers, and then the American WBC team followed closely by the Giants, the Blue Jays and the asters. So it's just, it's not the best. I think Brady singer has the best projection via the fan. Step charts of any starting pitcher on the American WBC team and Brady singer, I believe, has the 30th best starting pitcher projection of any pitcher. So that means that there are 29 starting pitchers with better projections and most of them are American. In fact, there are 24, I believe, American born pitchers, starting pitchers with better projections than Brady singer, who is, again, the best projected pitcher on this WBC roster. So the pitchers who have better projections who are not on this team, de Grom, burns, rodan, nola, Cole, Wheeler, Scherzer, Bieber, Verlander, Woodruff, mcclanahan, gausman, freed strider, cease, web, musgrove, Snell, Kershaw, la dolo, glass now, cab gallon and green. A lot of good pictures there, but none of them have the U.S. WBC roster. And you know, like a number of them in the cactus league, right? Who could just go down the way to chase for the early going and then hop on a flight to Florida after. So, you know, yeah. It's not the best. No, the hitters. On Team USA. Wonderful. Amazing. Yeah. But yeah, the pitching does leave a little something to be desired, but I have we talked about the hitting Ben. You know? Also, I would also just say that if Michael Bowman were on this podcast, he would fight you for besmirching his beloved landslide. We've had that fight before. It's a real love. It's true. It's true. Yeah. And it's not just the U.S. team that has this issue recruited pitchers because you look at the rotations for a lot of the other teams too, and they're not super strong. I mean, the Dominican roster is totally stacked too with position players, but the starting pitchers, you know, it's not deep, really, right? You've got sandy Alcantara who we're about to talk about and Christian Javier, but then it's like Rwanda Contreras and Johnny cueto, who were also about to talk about a teammate of sandia contrast, right? So it's tough. I mean, it's with the American team like there are a lot of pictures like Logan Webb, who expressed interest in being on the team at a certain point, but then ended up not being on it. And that's also the case with the other countries teams, you know? Like Luis Castillo and other pitchers who at one point seemed like they might be interested, but then ultimately are not participating. And there are various reasons for that with Kershaw, evidently, and some others also it's an insurance issue. Yeah, there's an LA times piece about this that I will link to if you're interested in the ins and outs of insurance, but according to this piece, the insurance coverage protects teams from having to pay a player for time missed because of an injury stemming from the tournament if an injury is determined to have happened in the WBC, then the team is reimbursed for the time the player misses. Participants are required to undergo entrance and exit physicals to help clean injury information. And so with a pitcher like Kershaw, who has had some chronic injury issues, they just couldn't get coverage, and I guess the Dodgers wouldn't just wave this. Miguel Cabrera ran into the same issue, but the tigers were just like, eh, he can go play. It's fine. But the toucher. So not so sanguine about Kershaw, I guess. And so there's this concern about injury risk in the WBC. And I don't know that there's great evidence for the fact that it makes you more likely to get hurt. I studied this back in 2017. I wrote an article about it and didn't really find any compelling evidence to that point that players who had participated in the WBC had suffered greater injury rates and there is another story at the same time that the wash U sports analytics group did that maybe found some slight effects, but nothing glaring and MLB for its part insists that there's nothing to it according to the LA times, MLB has compiled injury data from the first four WBC iterations, according to a league official, the data aren't publicly available, but the official maintained there is no correlation between being hurt and playing in the WBC. It's also an MLB's best interest to say that without sharing the data. But it's not totally clear that you go pitch in the WBC or more likely to get hurt because of course you can get hurt in spring training too, the idea is basically that maybe if you're just more into this tournament and you're throwing more max effort and you're not fully ramped up yet and it's a little more intense and perhaps high pressure than a spring training game and so you might be more likely to let it fly and hurt yourself and also you're away from your team's training staff and all of that and so perhaps you could be used in a certain way although I think the WBC managers are pretty careful to stick to whatever the prescribed
"marlins" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"You so much We appreciate that The business of sports that is what Michael Barr does for us among his many duties Michael Barr joins us on our Bloomberg interactive broker studio here some pretty sizable news out of Miami Michael Derek Jeter stepping down as CEO of the Miami Marlins and selling his minority stake I did not see that coming No not at all My father had a saying when he would see a broken lamp in the living room what in the world happened here And that's what is going on I'm reading the statement This is from Jeter Today I am announcing that the Miami Marlins and I are officially ending our relationship I will no longer serve as CEO nor as shareholder in the club We had a division 5 years ago to turn the Marlins franchise around and as CEO I have been proud to put my name and reputation on the line to make our plan reality Now there's also a statement from the chairman and prince Malone from Bruce Sherman He had his own statement about the relationship the Miami Marlins and Derek Jeter announced today that they have agreed to officially end the relationship The Marlins think Derek for his many contributions and wish him luck in the future Now that's the nice talk I'm just wondering if something went down and people were mad Yeah it just from Jeter statement it kind of seems like a falling out with management I'm sure we'll learn more in the days ahead But I also wonder just off the top of my head is just related to the work stoppage was there maybe a different strategy as it relates to that I'm not sure Again we'll learn more as the days go on Yeah I wondered them you come to the negotiations if they don't want to have a deadline by the end of tonight they're going to start canceling games in the regular season starting in close with the March 31st opener So this is a mess This is a mess Major League Baseball It just doesn't look good I'm sorry The optics look terrible for Major League Baseball The players everybody involved and now you've got this news here on this important day for Major League Baseball coming out of the Miami Marlins So we'll get some more reporting on that throughout the day Michael Barr thank you so much for your quick take there on that news Right now let's switch over to the markets The market outlook lots of bricks in that wall of worry Now we have to include geopolitical risk and the markets are trying to digest that We have markets a mixed today off the bottoms But again investors are trying to get a sense of how they price this out Let's check in with Brett Ewing chief market strategist for first Franklin financial services Brett thanks so much for joining us here What are you telling your clients here over the last 5 days Well first thanks for having me on today Yes there has been a lot of turmoil A lot of concern out there in the recent weeks with the volatility in the markets and certainly our clients are talking to us and wanting to insight and what we're trying to convey to them is we are still put the fed as one of the biggest risk into the markets for 2022 And we're also guiding them to look a little out past these geopolitical risks And you can go back over the last 80 years and really look at every geopolitical event and it's really a short run phenomenal in the market meaning that the average rolldown is around about 4.5% with a recovery rate around 42 days So an event like that we're trying to look past that and look out over the next 18 months really And so what we're doing here is positioning we're taking advantage of this volatility and specifically looking at the small and mid cap sectors So talk us a little bit about I mean you said that you want to look past the geopolitical tensions but isn't there a commodity read through that then kind of hits essentially the American recovery story Is that perhaps worth making a bigger deal of over the fed Well I think the commodity spikes that we're seeing right here are most likely going to be short lived I think that when we look at the oil markets right here of course it's all multiyear highs Again we think it's closer to the peak than most people realize as a matter of fact last week we actually sold a lot of our oil stocks into the strength and we just feel there's on a relative basis there's a lot better asset classes that have just been decimated whether it's growth tech or other small mid cap stocks out there So we feel there's better places to park that capital going forward All right let's talk about tech because a lot of folks have the last 12 months as the rotation trait has worked so well They've been kind of rotating out of some of those big tech names Now you get some folks saying hey I like tech I need the tech that actually makes money As opposed to some of the more high flying revenue growth stories How do you think about tech and allocating capital there Yeah absolutely I mean look 2022 is going to be a stock picker's year There's a lot of great technology companies that have it's the baby with the bathwater syndrome here just been thrown out and decimated here in the short run But we're taking advantage of that I think there's a lot of great opportunities within tech There's a lot of tech companies out there that have wonderful moats around their business model And those are the areas that I would be advising people to take advantage of Talk to us a little bit about perhaps the value rotation And I think a lot of people started off 2022 thinking was going to be kind of a continuation of what we started off in 2021 And yet it doesn't seem like that strong conviction essentially for the value at the start of the year has really persisted in the last 6 weeks or so Do you think it can really revive itself I think there's certainly a few areas within value that I would continue to look at I do think that the areas that I feel have a lot of upside is more of an asset class story within the small and mid cap Stocks the valuation on those asset classes is the spread between large cap and small mid cap right here Is the widest dating back 20 years You have to go back to 2001 typically the small mid cap Areas of the market are you know there are four P is well above the large cap Right And right now it's quite the opposite All right Brett thanks so much for joining us.
AJ Remembers Jeremy and Jason Giambi
"Former Major League Baseball player Jeremy giambi dies, suicide, probably accidental, they're not saying, I don't think they said, but he was a big partier. His brother Jason giambi, who was a Yankee for us and did well for us for a number of years, was he Yankee. And he was famous for party, and I'll tell you how I knew not only Jason, but his brother as well were parties. Me and Joey were out one night at scores, the famous strip club in Manhattan. This is, I think the I think it was 2000 on the Yankees were against the Tampa. I'm gonna get this wrong. They were playing them on the model. It's Florida Marlins in the World Series. And we need a Jason John me to play. It was one of the last years of his career, maybe no, he was traded. One of the last years he started to break down legs were going, things were happening. Big guy, steroid user, the whole thing. And wasn't in a starting lineup, which was terrifying because he had a big bat. We needed his bat. Didn't want to lose this series, which we went on to lose. And he didn't play this one game. And we need him to pinch hit. It was a perfect time to pin chip with men on base and he didn't go out there. And the other thing that ties us with the brother who died, he's part of the most probably the most famous play defensive player in Yankee history where I forget who bad at hit a ball in the gap during the playoffs, Yankees against Oakland and I'm going to say Paul O'Neill was in right field. He gets the ball off the wall, throws a bomb, a bullet down the first base line, the first face, and fakes that he's catching it. Derek Jeter was not supposed to be anywhere near the first baseline since he's a shortstop. Gita runs to the first baseline, many of you sports fans know the play. Catches the ball in a hop. Takes his right hand and underhanded backwood to the catcher Jorge Posada as Jeremy giambi is close to stepping on home plate, persona backhands and happens to hit the back calf of giambi's leg before his toe touches home plate. Yankees keep the one nothing lead, go on to win the series. The most famous defensive play in Yankee history, I think, in my opinion. And Jeremy zombie unfortunately was the guy checked out.

"marlins" Discussed on Yanks Go Yard: A New York Yankees podcast
"Great there's seven games out of first in the razor now lead him. They've kicked the red sox one and a half games back now after that. Sweep it at the trump so and you got to look at how these other teams upgraded the deadline. The raise in the socks did not upgrade nearly as Significantly as the yankees. Did i know the raise did get nelson cruz. Which we viewed as kind of a nightmare scenario but the race have some pitching problems. They didn't they didn't upgrade. They upgrade their rotation. Glass now is is out for the season now. After tommy john became official Bay traded richhill I know they have some younger guys. That are getting the job done. But guess what those guys are going to be able to get their innings. Count up as september rose along and as the postseason comes by. The red sox are begging on chris. Sale coming back and being an ase. I guess what they guessed. They think he's gonna be he's gonna be throwing complete game shutouts off tommy john surgery and then he is. He is yeah they could use a couple more of those. Yeah i mean the rest of the rotations of four yards guys so guys. I'm not saying the yankees still have not proven much to me. They still seem to be a mediocre media a team who can fight for wildcard spot and doesn't really blow you away with any of their Kind of Play on the field is not blown me away this year yet. the offense. I know the pitching has been good. But there's also been such bizarre blow ups with the pitching staff that it kind of brings everything else back down to earth. Fifty six forty eight certainly solid for a team of this caliber and the expectations heaped upon them. It's not good enough. But look the schedules. Tailor-made you got the ocean in the mariners. This week the mariners are obviously no slouch. Those are probably the worst team in baseball. You have to. You have to sweep the orioles now and i. It's just simply what needs to happen. I you gotta be down in the inferior teams. You got lucky. Because the i guess we thought the raise the red sox you beat up on each other the raise actually just shit out of the reds new. That did not happen. Yes oh look that they have to take care of business against these bad teams in. This was the first indication that they i guess are up for the challenge in some capacity but we need to see more convincing wins. We need to not be put into high levered situations in the eighth inning against the miami marlins for two days in a row And they they need to just make sure that they're staying on track. I like like i said before. I like the energy resorting bring into the dugout. He's chatted with people. I like the embrace. You had with gary kind of brings another element alongside rookie. Who's who's out of the dugout. The first person out of the dugout to celebrate anything. So i think this will be the shift in what the yankees need culturally. I think that's the biggest thing and if they can play more relaxed the offense will come. The bullpen will not be walking on eggshells every time they come out To be put in a higher pressure situation and things will be fine. But i need to see more consistent i'd need to see a more consistent. Stretch over what's been going on not sold on anything yet. August is here and a lot a lot. there's a lot of opportunities for the yankees to take advantage. And this is when they need to do it to turn the tables and shift the momentum in their favour. I love it. I love our team. I'm so tired of. I love our team. I mean no..

I couldn't i honestly could not enjoy the sleep. Guy sorry I want everybody to be happy. I want everybody to feel All the good vibes and everything but it was a sweep against the miami marlins They they could have easily lost. All three of these games The starting pitching was okay. the offense was not good The bullpen was solid. Probably did what it should have gone. I'm not sold on anything yet. If we didn't acquire anthony rizzo at the trade deadline. Probably would have been a sweep in the other direction I am feeling good with the three. Wins don't get me wrong Where what are we staring at fifty-six in forty eight now i'm love matt red sox there yet it is. Yeah you gotta get yet. Once we get ten games over five hundred ten to twelve games over five hundred feeling good and they can maintain a little bit of something but guys.

But i'm on stack year predict. I love it. I love it. And i'm with you baby. Get your damn guns up people next. We got the wolf pack. Nc state taking on razorbacks. What do you got nazi. So this one is a little okay so basically the ncaa tournament odds came out. The barstool sportsbook at opened were is plus seven to win it which i thought was great value at the time you know. Arkansas ran through that you see. They've got they've only lost eleven games or something. Like forty six eleven. Kevin cops for arkansas is having the best year ever seen from a closer even better than houston street in texas back. Dang damn well it a with like eleven or twelve and a point seventy or a. His slider is the mariana revere. Clutter of college baseball. Nobody can they put him in there doer dot nebraska pushing the brains in the regional and they played a do or die final. They put hot. Cnn breaking third inning down to enough to any pitched seven scoreless out the old debts they could. They put him on his sec week. It's he pitches three to four innings on fridays and sundays. Got rubber arm. He's the college baseball pitcher of the year. Arkansas got five guys. Double digit homers incredibly deep. They got a good as richard wick lender if there is a weakness on arkansas. It's the death in the starting rotation shaky you see a lot of games or they're down to three nothing three one after five innings and the comeback. A lot late of this crowds been onboard bomb stadiums. But i will say this. Nc state is no freaking joke. They started out one. Eight and acc play and rallied all the way back to finish second in the regular season. Then they get second in the conference journey and then they roll through the russian with yana. Regional defending louisiana tech one twenty to ten and their two games. And you look at it and state. They've got to really get outfielders. Let johnny butler and three eighty dollars. Twelve homers center taller mcdonagh. In that. you wanna fifteen hummers. Y'all know baseball is a funny sport. You get confidence minimum going together damn near anything's possible. So it's he states plus two one win this regional. I'm not necessarily taking that. But i don't think arkansas just the all time walk. People think it's estates hot and for people that did better arkansas win at all. It's these states fifty to one. Right now i would put a tiny. Rnc state is like an insurance thing. Say something crazy app. It's just a little back her just a little backer little support just a little roman swipe right there. Mitzi to maybe extend the life on that day dave portnoy's interact with twitter about college baseball. He bets in arkansas at all too. So arkansas good late arkansas. To win at all and i liked it when it was plus seven fifty but got bet down to sixty one and five to one before the games went off and now it's plus one eighty and the value. You can't be anybody. Plus eighty baseball on our craze. Baseball postseason has so if you got arkansas early at plus some fifty good for you all the value. Wait on now next. We've got ole miss and the wildcats that's going down. That's down in arizona and for ole miss arizona. What do we need to see out of these two clubs for them to make a push to find themselves into this run in omaha so arizona has the best. I think the best hitting team in college baseball. They've got seven guys in three thirty. Your heart who jacob bury their freshman's the best he's a. Da three before fifteen bombs. They're all fits is phenomenal. They've got a good home field. That desert air. These are going to be the lane. Gangs the only supra-regional a west of central time zones. This is the freaks out at night late night. While ole miss has an excellent hitting team to lead the sec. And batting average omits all mrs pak the witness the line arizona's one twenty seven plus one or two so kind of feels that could go either way. Onus has an asymmetric doug casey who's phenomenal. he's tended to the to twenty five all right lefty the path. The win is you have to when he pitches and you got one to one the other game sixteen thirteen a homeless a good closer a good as pitching that is kind of lacking bond those guys arizona scored on on arizona's pitching does not blow me away. They got some solid guys but not spectacular. So i expect to just get freaky wild in the desert. I think ole miss has shot expecting to casey to pitch game to saturday. So you gotta steal one. Friday or sunday. I think things going three and going to be really wild. And it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know my first year covering bar stolen all onus getting there just being mean i can't even imagine something better it would be it would be electric. We'll give you the numbers midst. Human the numbers. I need to know where to put this money out. Because the way you're talking right now. I feel like there might be some value in an old miss may. I don't know own this as such a bad history. And he's super regional as they got through two thousand fourteen to change should. That's they've they've done one. I mean this might yank twenty one years done a phenomenal job but only one of its routes. I'm staying away on. Well let me ask you this regionals.

A new book called Baseball's Leading Lady. F. A Manly and the Rise and Fall of the Negro Leagues. Author Andrea Williams tells the remarkable story of F A Manly, the owner and co manager of the Newark Eagles, a team she cultivated into a powerhouse. She also explores manly civil rights activism and the history of American baseball. Andrea Welcome to all of it. Hi. How are you? Good. So let's start with the fact that you are not only a baseball fan, you have worked professionally around the sport. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum know when you first heard about the life and learned about the career of F A manly What jumped out at you? What leapt out at you about her career. Yeah, I think the first thing was just that she had done. It was really just what she was able to accomplish in the thirties and forties. I started working active you them in the summer of 2004. I had just graduated with the sport management degree and By myself, working in a front office on myself, ultimately becoming a general manager of a major league baseball team. I wanted to work at a small market club and, you know, I had my own Moneyball aspirations. But at the time there was no one you know you mentioned in the intro Kim and what? Just becoming the first last year And so, you know, I would always say that. You know, I wanted to be the first but I really thought that Kim would beat me. Um And I don't know. I mean, I do know why it took so long One, but yes, see, Seen F um and what she accomplished back then was was really eye opening because a We didn't really know about it. You know, I just got my job at the museum and Up. Kendrick, who is the president now was giving me a cooler and, you know, I saw her picture in the corner and started asking questions and researching and reading and doing all the things and, Yeah, it was. It was remarkable because she had been owners, um, female owner his team before that they're you know, have been owners and Major League baseball and in the Negro leagues, but she Didn't just only team husband. She really handle the day to day did all the player contracts and negotiations or the equipment and manage the books and did all of the things that a general manager does. And she gave it back there. Open the book with a scene for the 1946 Negro World, Syriza and F Family's team. The North Eagles play and beat the Kansas City Monarchs. Why was this such a pivotal moment in her career and in baseball history? Yeah, it was. It was pivotal because of me. I'm sure I don't think she had. Why? No, she didn't have any. You know, she wasn't a little girl thinking of owning and operating a professional baseball team one day, but everything that she did. She did it to the degree. So if she's in based on now she wants to live. No, it matter that she, you know, Matter of fact celibate like she. She's been struggling. All this part 200 steam, You know, having having a professional team hard anyway, But doing it in black baseball was that much harder. You know, Budgets were tight, You know, they didn't. They didn't have their own stadium, very few black owners on their own stadium, so they were giving up. Hefty portion of gate receipts every single game to the white teams that they rented stadium space from so everything was always such a struggle. And so it was finally like, yes, this is this is what it was all for. It also missed it. Now, when you're the top team, right gate receipts go up because now people want to come see the best of the best to play in that team. Hurt. Here We really go goes on it. Larry Doby, who became the first black player in the American League following Jackie, who was first in the nationally he was on that team, one of efforts players Oh, yeah, It is a big deal. You know, Now that we see that, um Major League Baseball is element you know, has elevated the status of the peace Negro League players. You know that All of those guys were doing it on a professional level, and they were champions. My guess is Andrea Williams. They've her book is baseball's leading lady F A manly and the rise and fall of the Negro leaves. So in a little back background on efforts was born in Philadelphia, 18 97, and if you Google her her heritage has been debated for some time. Of and you write in your book that, according to US census records, her mother had at least some black heritage. And she and her mom and her half siblings lived his black Americans. She finds out later that her father Is white as the result of a relationship or affair, I guess how did she live in the world? And what impact did this have on the way she became involved in baseball and worked and lived in baseball. Yeah, As for definitely, um, you know, she took advantage of her fair complexion when she could when she needed to know she didn't interview later in life and talked about how you know if she was traveling alone, she would say in a white hotel or either the white only restaurant. Um, but I think that really that privilege is what enabled her to come back to Negro League baseball and say to it is boardroom in the In the conference is for the Negro National League. When she's surrounded by all of these black men and saying, OK, this is what we need to do..
