The Latest: Kershaw, Dodgers take Game 1 over Rays
"Vast fox sports radio networking glad you have chosen to spend A couple minutes with us and there is no debate. There is no debate where we begin this night, a radio the fall classic surfing the Blue Wave Cowabunga Dod's the Fall Classic, starting in a neutral site. Kind of on Tuesday night with Joe Buck every night, you get ajob of game and John Smalls calling the game on Fox. Did you watch? Maybe not will see that I don't imagine the ratings will be very good for this Thegame was lopsided in there's one team that has a fan base and another one that doesn't a national fan base for the Dodgers. Put on a pyrotechnics show. It was like the Fourth of July. Boom Bang Bam! The Dodger offense When Cody Bellenger Mookie Betts hit homeruns Clayton Kershaw mowing down Tampa haters like it was an April started Dodger Stadium on by the time The damage he'd done. Ella ended up spit roasting the raise 8 to 3 and Game one of the 2020 World Series for the Dodgers Get a leg up on the best of seven series now three wings away. From their first championship as a franchise since 1988 When Ronald Reagan was the president, Tommy Lasorda was waddling in the dugout and Kurt Gibson got wanted bat and hit a home run and is at all time legend because of that, as a Dodger, So let us discuss the question. What are your big takeaways? From Game one of the World Series, a domination situation for the Dodgers. So I've got the white whale hand grenades and Smurfs and we will tie all these things together. Now we talk about the World Series. Game one. You start with us. Accounts on Lee is just one game. It doesn't matter that much in the big picture. It's only one game. However. I'm going to disagree with that statement because the feeling that one gets watching Game one of the World Series from the Dodgers side of things. It's like hitting a two team parlay. It doesn't seem like a one win situation. Night, so don't undersell the importance of a game one win for Los Angeles and I'll tell you why. Because the Dodgers winning a Clayton Kershaw playoffs start As easy as a B C. 123. Is not something that happens very often, right. You feel like you dodged a bullet when you win a Kershaw game in the playoffs in a big play off game, Kershaw has been the dog with fleas in the postseason. And while many of my colleagues on television like to downplay Clayton Kershaw's missteps on radio, we don't do that We don't his World Series resume coming in. I would have him in the bread line. If that was his resume. What into an E? R. A of over five he had pitched in 26 2 3rd innings given up 16 earned runs. Over four starts in five games. But on this night, it reminded and voice in my head. It was Dick Stockton, who told me years ago stats tell you what has happened. They don't tell you what's going to happen. And that was a vintage regular season type of Kershaw performance. And you see that in a big play off game as often as you see a white whale swimming around the ocean, right? Clayton Kershaw got 38 swings. 19. Mrs. He had a whiff rate of 50%. Now the stat geeks tell us that that is the highest Of Clayton Kershaw's career, whether it be the postseason or the regular season that half the time it was S O matter, Miss. That is what's known as flexing your muscles, and it wasn't just Kershaw. Cody Bellenger, Mookie Betts. Max Muncy all had big days. The conga line kept moving. You keep pressure on your opponent 10 hits, they got seven walks. The Dodgers drew seven walks and, more importantly than that. They actually hit when they had runners in scoring position. They batted 3 57 on this day with runners in scoring position. They were five out of 14 follow the ways and is a key. You follow the wisdom often, American legend Will Rogers You never get a second chance to make a first impression. The Dodgers they made their first impression. Now you've got to back that up. You have backed that up in Game two in Game three, but you only played one game and the Dodgers the more talented team they didn't play down to their competition. They played like they were the superior opponent in this matchup. We certainly hope that continues were slightly biased on this now. Part B. If you would like to knit pick That's one of these. We get paid to do hear on the radio. Always to pick apart things in micro analyze. Dave Roberts fell back into some old analytical principles. We were hoping that his gut feeling managerial move. The other night would continue. It did not in this game, managing Clayton Kershaw. For Dave Roberts is like juggling hand grenades. One wrong move one wrong move and your head gets blown off. And I understand partially what Roberts is thinking. Because when I'm watching Clayton Kershaw, I'm thinking, OK, Here's where it all falls apart goes to hell right here, right. This is going to be the inning. It all goes to crap. In a playoff situation. But on this night Kershaw he was dealing He'd only thrown 78 pitches. Through six innings. And ah, very effective there. The Rays hitters were completely flummoxed against Kershaw as we gave you some of the numbers there of 50% with weight, and despite the Dodgers having a huge advantage there up eight tow one. They, Roberts Arbitrarily said. That's it. We're going to take you out of the game. I'd rather take you out of half inning. Too early, then a half inning too late. So that brought in Dillon Florio, who wasn't good and then and then Roberts panic because the Rays attempted the pin shit G may enjoy And so Roberts ran out of the dog and I got to make a change. I

"Seven pitches that first man e faces here in Game seven, another two to Hernandez. It's the senator. That home run was tremendous. It was freaking majestic, an unbelievable, singular moment. But the entire at bat was a tour de force coming off the bench ice cold, working an eight pitch at bad and then tying that came like that is legendary. A truly iconic L a Dodger moment and you can talk all the jockey junk you want about the Dodgers payroll or about how they're loaded with MVP candidates like bets and Cody Bellenger. But they're also loaded with guys like Hernandez. Somebody played for two other MLB teams before he got to L. A. Justin Turner was with two other big league teams before Ella Max Muncy was flat out released by the A's before they sign a minor league deal with the Dodgers or heated And those guys are every bit as important to this team as bets and Ballenger. Of course, they're talented his hell. Everybody knows that, but they're also tough is hell. And not everybody knew that or believe that. In fact, when they fell behind three games to one, everybody believed that they were the opposite of tough. They thought they were chokers. They thought they had no grit. They thought they didn't have any clutch gene that they were made of all the wrong stuff that they were soft. Except they had a little something right? They had a little something for all the haters. They had everything I just mentioned, And then they had this in the bottom of the seventh.

We'd never really established this. I don't think. Oh, at 15 Got it will break it. 15. You're just wondering this as our bus is walking down the hall. What? This isn't on the air air, our dirty laundry and lack of organizational skill on here, All right. We gotta get into this story about the New York Post and the e mails that they have been publishing. York Post has published A for two days now. A story about Hunter Biden. The first one was about a laptop that contained emails. I'm sorry, both of more about the laptop that contain emails. It's just they broke it down. Yesterday's big story was how Hunter Biden was going to introduce a Ukranian businessman to then vice President Joe Biden. Today's happened to be with Hunter Biden trying to cash in on his family name with the Chinese. There's a couple of problems with this number one in October. Surprise. This is not Hunter bite in his shady asked and answered. We know that Hunter Biden has had issues with drugs and shady involvements for a long time, or he did for a long time. And we know that Number two. The other issue is the chain of custody at every trial. When there is a piece of evidence you have to put on. You have to put on evidence that that the chain of custody, you know if there was a gun God that is driving me and saying, I have to turn so the chain of custody if if you have a gun that's going to be entered into evidence into this trial. You have to be able to prove where it came from who had it in their hands at what point at every 20.0.3 point. And this laptop has a chain of custody issue. Yeah, so this the basics of it. At least according to the New York Post. Hunter, Biden or somebody who appears to be Hunter. Biden drops off Hunter Biden's laptop MAC book. At an apple repair facility or it's Ah private repair facility, But the guy specializes in Mac books. He told somebody else. Later, he was the top genius at one of the genius bar's at an apple store boy, and there were I think three computers is what he said. Only one of them was reparative, and he went through when he repaired it. And while he couldn't get Hunter Biden, whoever it was that dropped it off to come back and pick it up. He eventually contacted the FBI because he had gone through and seeing some information in there about Hunter Biden about charisma about the Ukraine deal, and all of this was going on. Well. That this is part of the issue. There are questions about why he searched through the laptop in the first place, although we know and he has said as much that he is a He is a Republican and vote Republican. So Mack, Johnny John Paul Mac Isaac is the guy's name. From this point. It turns out that before turning over the gear, the owner of this a repair shop made a copy of the hard drive, turning it over to the FBI. He made a copy of the hard drive and then gave a copy of the hard drive to Rudy Giuliani's lawyer, Robert Costello. Now somewhere in there, Steve Bannon apparently had custody of this thing at one point, or at least knew of it. So when the New York Post publishes this story, there are already questions about Wait a minute. Wait a minute. If if they've had this thing for a while, Number one. Why didn't they come forward with it? And other outside of the obvious waiting for the October surprise thing, but second Why is it there's a couple of questions that I have had about this number one is. Why are the e mails So vague. You could argue? Well, the hunter Biden knew he couldn't immediately name his father. He couldn't say. My dad is the vice president of the United States and I can set up a meeting with you if the price is right. But the other question is.

Solano now playing short is right there to field it, and he throws to first Max Muncy on one pitch retired by Rogers one away, And if you needed any evidence of Giants faith in Tyler Rogers and not just To get right handers.

The pitch to bets is a slider low ball too. The M V P for last year, Cody Bellenger is out on deck. Giantsbullpen is quiet at the moment. We could see Tyler Rogers close some games. We could see him start some games to one that swings and rips one of the left field base hit pickers and hustles over to cut it off. He bets with his speed a turn around first, but he'll stop there. Okey bets as his first base hit Dodgers uniform and he wants to save the ball. He's asked Giants too, given the baseball so you can save it. This guy has accomplished a lot in his big league career, but he wants the souvenir of his first Dodgers hit. That pitch from Rogers just Too high.

"It as an entire picture puts trout in the inner inner sanctum of baseball players through his age twenty seven season. It's just insane. It keeps getting better every year. There's something he does better than the than the year before so without being said. Where could you possibly acidly see continued growth because i think we're starting to venture now that we're getting 'cause. Is it fair to say. Do you think we're we're in the middle of his prime. Yeah okay i would i would say we're probably on the on the doorstep of his primary your prime years or what twenty seven to thirty thirty two maybe three. I think it skewing younger than that with the way baseball has gone over the last. I would say look for my child. He's been in the league since us. What eighteen nineteen years old eighteen gene. I'm gonna say twenty. I venture to say twenty three years old. I think we i think we reasonably have to consider that the last three seasons 2017 to the president or maybe even twenty sixteen like this is his prime i his prime may extend for another five years sure but like i am and that's what i'm getting at is say within this prime where jay where do you see continued progress because we're we're. We're the slug we're talking about. I mean because if there's going to be a getting stronger he's sacrificed i parts of his game offensively to enhance parts of his game pensively right to my point he's not running but as him not running in an effort to preserve serve his body to hit the long ball like i don't know that those to correlate at all he's not running to stay healthy and he's not running again to your point because the sacrifice of ninety ninety feet for an out without scoring. That's just not something. Teams are willing to do i would i would love to see the first third numbers for for trout because i feel like those have to be excellent giving his given his speed but he's probably going to have the u._s. Stolen bags this year that he's had probably since twenty fifteen <hes> but yeah i mean when you when to the question about what what's going to continue to improve. It's definitely the power and it's not even necessarily home runs wins <hes> because he's already had a forty homer season and that was four fucking five years ago in twenty fifteen at forty. One home runs <hes> but the slug doug continues to go up every single year. <hes> the on base is something that is going to be <hes>. I mean it's it's not it's. It's crazy to consider that looking at he won the m._v._p. Unanimously in two thousand fourteen mike trout put up those numbers this season people would be like what the fuck is wrong with my trout yeah. I'm not even kidding. Two thousand fourteen like that's the other apart. That's so impressive about him. Is that the year he won the m._v._p. Unanimously he struck out one hundred and eighty four times and walked eighty three times okay so far this season he struck out eighty seven times and walked eighty five times like the guy who won the ant the m._v._p. Unanimously was incredibly flawed compared to he mike trout. That's currently playing baseball league strikeouts that year yeah it's in the league struck out more times than mike shot the year that he won a unanimous m._v._p. <hes> and it's it's crazy that this guy i if you were to ask like dallas you probably know the answer to this question but just fan how how many pieces my trout one ooh..

"He stole berry talking trout. Chow chow trout's never driven in over one hundred ten runs. I don't know no no he's scored one hundred and twenty five runs out so he's he hit is the for he's the i player to hit. Thirty home runs steel forty five bases and score one hundred twenty five runs essy's. That's false. That's never got mike trout's never done that. Thirty home runs forty five and scored one hundred twenty five yeah. He's didn't twenty twelve thirty homers. Forty-nine steals on and twenty nine runs led the league in runs and bags yeah i was i was looking. I was looking at twenty sixteen where he had thirty bags twenty-nine jacks but my my point was he's. He's done that one time. Barry bonds did that. Five times very also also had a forty forty season and barry bonds played elite level defense so my trump's what elite level left field defense compared to something like league average centerfield defense if you've got an elite defender out in left field. That's a pretty cool thing. Sorry that that you put my trout in centerfield. Put them in field or not that okay so my trump played centerfield. Wh what do you want me to be angry. Barry bond gold glove field monistic on people because they displaced mike trout for peter orcas. I i know and trust me. That was the beginning of all right. Mike trout back to centerfield old but here's the thing you're basically just gonna play two feet off of the fucking warning track because we don't want you dive in for shit and we don't want you running into the wall because we just want you hitting the baseball also why you'll never see mike trout. I dunno might try to still thirty bags again yeah. They don't want him. They don't want him sliding sliding headfirst in the second base. They don't walk trout doing a lot of things that a superstar player does on a baseball field if we're just being fucking real all right just just seriously seriously. Let's not i mean he's not taking anybody. I mean if anything that's just a reflection of the fact that people are more uh responsible and valuing their franchise assets than they were at the time of barry bonds like div. The value added of a stolen base isn't worth the risk in a lot of these cases based on the way. The game is played today and based on how the officer run today. We're talking about two different. Two completely different eras again where a guy a guy moving from first to second was valuable based on the way to the game was being played when when barry bonds was playing baseball so what did barry bonds do he put himself in his team in the best possible position more times than not when he was on first base if he didn't hit the fucker out of the park and did that on a regular basis. They are telling mike trout. Don't do that so i'm. I'm not knocking might trout necessarily for not doing it because he's had the chains put on the cuffs. Put on them doing know that they're telling them that because i still have north north of twenty bags last year we know it we know it. That's how do we know it though i mean if he has been conversations about it they talked if there's been articles written about it what the same in the same article about the defensive alignment for my trout not wanting him to play shallow so that he's not worried about diving for a ball and he's taking taking away the extra base hits and giving himself an opportunity to get to the wall and elevate above as opposed to running into. That's why you goes through my trout's highlight reel. You'll see more catches either at the wall or above the wall really than i think you'll see him laying out in flint forward and that's by <unk> designed the i think we all know what berry went on to do in his mid to late thirties but if you're looking strictly at the ah the clip that might trout.

"I think it floated for a little bit bobbed. Yeah i think it was i think it was in there for a little bit so <hes> let's let's catch up with our old friend max muncie and what he's been up to recently all right to time guests max muncie first time by yourself and i reached out to you about a month ago being mike. We need to get you by yourself. No more walker bueller taking your shine. This is max months. He's time right now so when we talked to you down spring like the demo one thing that i took away from that interview with you is that you had an attitude. You had a way that you carried yourself that you'd have to say it but i knew that your guy that's very confident in your abilities <hes> twenty eight right as right twenty eight years old and then here you are. You're all star season. Is that something that you know after forget forget about the playoffs forget about the world series going into your offseason your workouts. What were your main goals. You set for yourself. And how many of them have you achieved to this point. The biggest thing was to be consistent kind of prove everyone that it wasn't a fluke. <hes> i hope so me and hopefully i keep saying attitude attitude and keep it going and i keep working hard but the biggest thing was just you know my main goal is pleased that prove that it wasn't a fluke everybody in <hes> <hes> stars like maturing. That's still my main goal and then on the top team win and do whatever i can help him win. So i mean you look around. There's dodgers team. This is a team that has all-stars everywhere. What do you care about standing out or is it just like i want to help the team win. Here's what i wanna do. Did you have goals that. You set for yourself at least from. I wanna hit x. amount of doubles. I want to reach this amount on homers. Thirty home runs going to be pretty nice. Are you close in an already. Would you thirty five last year thirty five five last year. And what do you got twenty three the at twenty three last night. I mean your pace to hit. Forty forty be pretty awesome. I'm just worried about thirty is far as i'm concerned as a follow up thirty pretty sweet but really it's mainly just helping the team win. <hes> you know like i said i do have an attitude about myself but at same time i don't always like being in the spotlight. Yeah i like being in the shadow a little bit still being cody bellinger on your team. It's like the shadow right now turned twenty four yesterday. He's already got thirty jack's. It's i mean watching him. It must be take. It's like playing with ken griffey. Yeah the old end sixty four games <hes> no i. It's just it's crazy. What he's doing you know anytime. I do a media interview. It's you tell me about cody bellinger over there. You know but uh-huh like when someone says that to you they're like hey..

"The one three five with the strikeouts per nine still pretty good north of ten <hes> but the minnesota soda twins have been trying to fight off. I don't want i think surging is probably too strong of a word but a scratching and clawing away cleveland indian team they've been fighting them off for a few months now so when you go out and try and bolster your bullpen you go out and get some help and sam dyson immediately goes goes on the injured list kind of <hes>. It's a little deflating. Its lowest lady yeah. It's brutal because i mean you've got. You've got guys like like rogers. Augers are down there trying to trying to do the best that they can. They get reinforcements. Sam dyson was having a great year. Dyson was throwing the ball very well for the giants and closer and now i mean look i think these kind of things the one thing that i think we're doing when we're talking about. This kind of stuff is where subconsciously forgetting the point that you made earlier today when i was talking shit about your red sox. There's there's still a lot of meat on this bone. Still two months left in the season. We're just starting to creep into the middle of august here so there's time for guys to to figure things out there cyber guys to go on runs. It just sucks because you figure that you've you know targeted a guy that can i don't know if it's put you over the hump but can really kind of stabilize what you've got going on in the back into the bullpen and then this happens fourteen earned runs in fifty one innings pitched with the giants six earned runs in two thirds of innings pitched with the twins his e._r._a. Jump from two six seven two three four eight just for that those two outings mall now. We have an explanation for it also you. You had a little nugget. Was that you that tweeted shane green statistic. Oh yeah yeah. That's assume that was a tough one. I was watching that last night as it happened <hes> and not to say that like you could could see it coming but like not specifically that night but there's no question that shane greens peripheral stats didn't quite match up with his his glossy e._r._a. He he had five earned runs allowed in thirty eight innings pitched with the tigers. He's allowed four earned runs in two innings pitched with the bridge so i mean i i don't. I don't thanks so much that he's having a fluky year but the the lack of strikeouts is was alarming too well. There's there's a difference between saying that a guy isn't going to continue throwing a low onesie are a and saying that he's like everybody's still thinks he's useful and will be an asset to the bridge bullpen for sure yeah. I'm not worried about shangri moving forward. I think <hes> i think he'll fit in just fine. <hes> aaron hicks goes on the injured list. I feel like i feel like pretty much. Every starting position player for the yankees has made at least one trip to the injured list this year and if they haven't gone on the injured list they've at least had some sort of injury injury that perhaps meredith it and then they toughed it out anyway. <hes> it doesn't matter i mean i i said this when gary sanchez went on the i l. <hes>. I've said it would pretty much a luke voight. Having to you know with a sports hernia it doesn't matter the yankees are just going to keep chugging along. They're going to score a billion runs.

"He wants to wear today. That's fucking dangerous man. That's why we're going to have this conversation a lot. Come the offseason but if i'm garrett cole i'm i'm fucking signing. Whatever the astros has asked me you you. You tell me what the number is and i'm fucking stan here so so what's it what's interesting is i think the houston astros could conceivably and i've talked about this a a lot when the n._b._a. Super team stuff starts rolling out. I had always brought up the possibility of and this was fuck. This was ten years ago when i was talking about this. Could you imagine if a kershaw a bumgarner an area all got together back then and we're like hey you know what are y'all down to. Just take a fucking pay cut and go one two three and see what we can do in a market. That's got an offense like what if baseball players started to do shit like that but what if the houston it's an astros became such a desirable landing spot that to your point a garrett cole would look at maybe i don't know jay. What did i say one hundred fifty mil easy. He's probably getting so. I would say he might be faced with that but maybe he jay. Please speak up here time. Let's say a legitimate jealous ed. That's getting a thirty five million dollars contract this. I don't know where you're coming from breaded chicken tutors but that houston astros are gonna become that desirable landing spot and i think you're going to start to see look look what burland or has done and showed is a like recapturing of his youth and i think guys who have who have the ability to maximize their stuff but haven't seemingly been able to unlock you are going to look at the houston astros as that landing spot ought to get them back to where they want to be and the financial compensation won't be something we'll be a hill that they die on if they think that yet. I've got a potential for the postseason. I've got a potential to write myself and right my career and resurrected. The astros are just an organization station with big huge opener. They're turning their own products into viable options and resources to utilize in the major league market. Nobody else is doing that. Nobody has the capacity to do that. At this point in time aside from maybe the dodgers and maybe a couple of other clubs but like i said last time ma'am the astros are playing fucking chess and everybody else is just now opening up the checkerboard going so you just jump over and then they're just now figuring it out. Yeah i think i've been i've been covering the red sox for fourteen seasons now and <hes> obviously recently i enjoy when they make the playoffs and make a run like last year is probably the most fun i'll ever have watching baseball entire life but i also there is something to enjoy where if and when they fall out of it and i can just sit back and sort of just watch everything else without a rooting interest i what were those two words you used you used us to where did he used them back to back but i feel like they don't belong together and definitely not in this instance here here. He's going us. We said if you said win if i think there's a foregone conclusion win. I think may have just happened but maybe that's me disagree. <hes> there's still two months left in in a lot of things can happen. They still have ten ten of their next thirteen against we'll get some bullpen wait. No that's not gonna happen. I mean the bullpens not the problem instead of the rotation anyways <hes> problems ninety nine of them. I am going to very much enjoy watching the houston astros do their thing in october. <hes> i'm going to enjoy watching them absolutely manhandle the oakland a.'s if and when they match matchup against each other that is the oakland a.'s on your radar you went from division lose to a team just trying to hold water and make an effort to get into the postseason. That's weird that the oakland a.'s are so high on your radar like you go from. I don't think i'm just saying you know i. I'm rooting for the oakland a.'s because is <hes> it's more fun to.

"Fucking better yeah based on based on what he's capable of what is clearly capable of what oh continue to be. I don't i'm i'm not necessarily asking like. Who do you think will take their team to the next level. I'm saying which player will perform the best after after the trade like which which player when you look at that guy put up the best numbers after being traded i mean i think it's tough not to roll with zag rinky. <hes> i really like that's the guy that i'm definitely pretty interested to see. I think it's got to be. I think you know if we are are factoring in impact on team in addition to just player performance. Stroman has to be right at the top of the list. I mean like what are you telling me. Are you telling me that they have a completely different like like i the vibes obviously a guy that starts once every five days can't can't make total impact on a team. That's just in cruise control right now but i also think that the mindset in the vibe around the mets has completely changed since they went out and just say hey we're we're going out and getting the guy like the guy that everyone is all the contenders that they want to shore up their their rotations right now. How about we go get that guy and then they i mean well like what what kind of feel like. You're kind of waffling. Though here on impact like are we talking overall cultural impact production as well or are we talking about a move that was made regarding an effort to get your team to the post season and in that realm who's going to perform because i understand and where you're going when you say acquiring marcus stroman for the new york mets is a big deal on multiple levels because there are only three what are they three like three out of the wild card yeah three four out of the wild card that's attainable in their mind and dave reinforced one of the one of the best rotations on paper. Should they perform <hes> so i totally get where you're coming from in that regard but are like are the new york mets going to be making noise the way that the astros pros are making noise. You know so so that's kind of like so now. I'm i guess on a different level. That's what i'm looking at zach looking grinky getting to a team with offense pins. I'm looking at getting to a team who has just a different level of under you mean to tell me that the video you saw a ver lander and grinky chopping it up pitching one. Oh one i know the cameras catch it but was probably poking justin bieber landers throat with his heart on that's helped bucket erect greenie. He was to get into the dugout and have those kind of conversations with those kinds of people and you pair that with the information. He's a smart fucking dude. This dude has cerebral as they come so you're you're. I mean you're just you're giving a superhero superhero powers more. You're you're letting him like select which kind of cape.

"I think we all said that let you know which i definitely think that i was probably out in front of that. I know i was on the oakland as broadcast before we actually recorded our podcast. I dropped the two ts freeze on the world and then i re purposed it here on our podcast so i was the one who told you i was wondering told everybody be excited about getting the hall of famers at grinky that's cool. That's great what aired sanchez about is is about to turn into ye be scared be afraid be very very very afraid and that's exactly what you've got. I don't know if you saw all this little excerpt from an interview that garrett cole did and he talked about the very first meeting he had with the houston astros brain braintrust when he rolled into town and they sat him down in a conference room and spent about an hour with tape and heat maps and a litany of information and garrett cole walked out of there and said that is easily the most informed and i have ever been regarding my own career regarding my stuff. It took me six years to be told that might curve ball was is my best fucking weapon six fucking years. It took me. I show up here and they tell me it's pretty much. All you're gonna throw foresee. We're up. We're going to turn you into a punch out machine ready. Let's go now aaron. Sanchez has that and what is that that's tutelage and technology like i told you the two ts tutelage and technology algae results in a fucking no hitter combined no hitter and they wouldn't added multi. I mean come on. I'm not excited about where the astros are at. I'm not excited about how the fucking future looks. It's going to be fun to watch because it's a consistent measuring stick for you like where you're at where you're at right now. Where were you last week. Where are you going to be out in the next two weeks. You play the astros. You're gonna fuck it. Find out real quick. I have to take take one's a question. <hes> i take is <hes> the combined. No hitter shouldn't count as a no hitter was that i think if you come out of the game you can get no hit but i don't think it should count as a no hitter. I think you like it has to be one guy. I think that the combined no hitters just like a cool. It's like the site. They literally got no hits yeah. I'm saying like the team got no hit but it's not a no hitter makes sense. I feel like the two i understand the distinction you're trying to make but i think we all mentally devalue it anyway win win. The words combined. No hitter set set like it doesn't do it for me it doesn't it doesn't take on my balls at all. I feel like it's very <hes> there's no stimulation there for me <hes> and then the question that i have for both of you curious to see if dallas sticks aaron sanchez. Who do you think will be the most impactful player that was moved at the deadline and i don't know that that's aaron sanchez because aaron sanchez like are the astros who they are without him yes did they just get a whole lot..

"We've got <hes> i wanna say. There's probably let me five five teams. Maybe i think five five. I'm gonna take a look here yet. You know what i i was. I was kind of looking the contending wildcard teams essentially what cleveland tampa oakland <hes> <hes> i think that's probably i guess you throw minnesota in there because allert things shake out between they've been a division leader the whole year. I don't think that they belong in that that conversation real so yeah. I think it's it's essentially it's a three-horse race between cleveland tampa bay and the oakland a.'s and if i'm not mistaken i think all of these competing teams have won five straight fucking ball games not when you combine all the teams i just mentioned and the streets there. It's it's not it's not great. It's not a it's not a clear cut path to success for anyone club. I think it's gonna be interesting because the oakland a.'s and the tampa bay rays both kind of have <hes>. I don't wanna i don't wanna call them. Unconventional approaches but cleveland's got a pretty firm rotation the oakland a.'s have solidified their rotation about as much as you can solidify rotation considering the moves they made so they're geared up and they look like they're poised to make a push standard going down for the raise. That's not great. That's tough <hes> think about how good the raise would be. If blake snell snell were the last year version of himself and of glass now stayed healthy i mean they would do you think that the legitimately speaking do you think the tampa bay rays would be contending for our division title. I don't know about the division if you have you have twenty eighteen blake snell and glass now continues the way that he was before he got hurt. That's a that's a division contending team. I don't i'm not saying they would influence a cy young like you can't just count for like back to back cy young performances so this injured nope. We're dealing completely hypothetical. You pluck twenty eighteen blake snell okay and you put him in two thousand nineteen glass now stays healthy and continues to pitch the way that he was pitching before he got hurt. Where are the raise in the standings. I still don't know if they're competing for a division but i think i mean they're clearly at least one of the segment and do his right now. So i mean there are probably out where they're at. Maybe not quite the gap between the two between them and the leader but i still still don't because then you would have to look if it's a hypothetical hypothetically speaking none of the yankees get hurt and hypothetically speaking they could very well. I'll be shitting on the performance that this yankee team has put forward which is kind of crazy to think about because you've had everybody that plays for the yankees or in the organization nations has got an opportunity at the big league level has come through has done their job in one way or another so i know what you're saying and i appreciate what a science performance from blake snell could probably mean to a club right now and what a a trending glass could could prove or could provide. I feel like we're so far removed from glass now's d._l. Stint or alston <hes> we've kind of lost or we don't fully appreciate tampa still being right there in the thick of it without two of what could be too as they don't really have that and there's there's are still at where they're at like. I think it's very impressive what tampa has been able to do this year. Which is why kevin cashier manager of the year when it's all said and done we'll see what happens there <hes> but that's it's it's crazy but now it's gonna be fun watching oakland china to get into that wildcard game again because there's no fucking chance the as are going to be winning the division <hes> that's not against my ashtros. That's how that works but <hes> <hes>. I would just like to take some time to congratulate myself on essentially calling aaron sanchez start telling you what what you were going to get..
