"Will be different in Georgetown and non existent Howard this year, the Big East, announcing that fall sports will only play conference games in 2020 and the MEAC has cancelled all fall sports Baseball. The Nationals Post one of the better starting rotations in the majors, and the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Last night when Stephen Strasbourg pitched the interest Squad game, Max Scherzer, Patrick Corbin and Anibal Sanchez got together in a socially distant wayto watch. Manager Davey Martinez. Those guys, they're all pretty close, you know, starting pitchers, so every time Strasbourg Max throws our orbit, essentially, those guys are going to sit up there and watch each other pitch. They like it. They washed. They learn and they teach. You know if they see something one guy's doing that they can help they talk. They talk amongst each other. And try to make themselves better.
"max scherzer" Discussed on Players with Lindsay Czarniak
"Hey guys. I'm Lindsay's Arctic and this is players conversations with athletes artists entertainers about their interest in sports and vice versa. And what they've learned along the way this is part two of the Washington nationals journey to the world series win through the eyes of star Pitcher Max Scherzer and those close to him as I was covering the story and is the team continued to fight adversity and beat the odds. Sherzad kept referencing. His wife Erika so in this episode. You're going to get a closer look at who Erica. Sherzer is and how she factored into that world series win without even realizing it the night. The nationals won the world series. She talked to me on the field after and shared what I found was fascinating insight into how the wives role is just as vital as a position on the field. I think it's easy for them to give up hope at times when my who thinks get frustrating and struggle and we can see it from an outside point of view. And that's why I think I was telling you the other night like we have to be that support system and we have to be the one that absorbs everything for them and just keeps going and keeps them going and one of our closest friends that also baseball. I says you have to be cheerleader. You have to be there for them and just keep on going and keep him going. And that's what we try to do back at hard. I mean it's hard but that's why I'm here for like I love the heck out of him. I'm going to do anything for him. Let me give you a little context on Max and Erica. And I'M GONNA start with Erica because when you first meet her. She's striking. She's super tall. She's beautiful but beyond that. What hits you immediately as how warm she is. How are tickets? She is and besides being a great mom supporter for Max. She's also doing a ton of work in the community and elsewhere maximum. Erica met the first week of college her freshman year at the University of Missouri where she played softball when one of her teammates introduce them. Eric told me it was his smile. That grabbed her attention. I in fact he was really romantic. I love thinking about that juxtaposition from the Max we see with his intensity on the mound. What intrigued me about the two of them as a couple is both were athletes stellar athletes and from growing up to college to the pros. Erica told me they both came close to winning titles including when Max's Detroit Tigers lost the world series to the giants in two thousand twelve but neither had ever won a championship so this run meant something special and their bond is something fierce. We begin where we left off the morning of game five of the World Series Max. Sherzer that night starter. He was in so much pain he could barely move. Erica was just starting your day taking care of her two little girls and Max was about to change everything and it was awful. I knew we'd done some treatment in game four Tried to get ready for game five to get ready and I went to bed at night thinking I was All right let's hope that treatment works and wake up and you know hopefully I feel good him and we we just go Remember Waking Up and I could just feel in my trap that no. It went backwards. That were the arm right now. I came. Turn my head I'm mike hobbling up stairs and stuff so I knew I was in a really bad spot. You know where you try and make a star in its game five of the World Series and I've done crazy things and you know maybe there's a way to pitch through it and as I continue to you know. Try address myself because even dress myself so it was just You know it was just a real bad spot. Realizing that There's just no way I'm going to make it Not with not with this type of pain. There's no way you can. You can fight this type of pain. I mean I can't lift my arm. How am I gonNA throw a ball with the girls and everything and he walked down the stairs and couldn't even move? All he could do was walk. He couldn't do anything else and I could just see the look in his face so I drop everything and go to him and it just it was just that feeling of knowing what is at stake and this is bad and so I just. Maybe it's the the mom in me but I just went into that lake that mom mode. Okay you're going to be okay. We're into this. We have to this. I we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA showered. We're going to address. We're going to do this Texas Person I've got this. I'll text these people say you just went into that. That mode of here's what we have to do. And I'm taking over this and it just I don't know it. It was awful and now a good moment but then as I got closer to park like yeah it's timeless job. Ross. No HE'S GONNA. Start so some a text message out like hey I know you guys who kind of knew I was not a good spot and you know I was talking to Joe Throughout the play offs and just different things that he was working on and he was saying this whole time to get a moment. Hey pitching game too and he and he actually looked really good and so You know for me I I knew I knew. At the moment I was not better job. Ross I saw what he had done. There was no way I could do this. That it's his turn to take the ball and text messages. Say get ready. You know you're going to have it to Joe. Roth told me when he got that text message from Max Sherzer that he was obviously concerned for his teammate. He was shocked but he did say there was a sense of adrenaline. That kicked in with the news that he could end up being the guy to pitch game five. He said he didn't really believe it would happen. Though until within the hour he got a phone call from national's management saying you are GonNa be the one. Meanwhile the nationals were in the midst of calling an impromptu press conference to announce the news. Everyone was shocked to hear. If you all know Max obviously pitcher with a broken nose he's been hurt before he's gone through things and when he comes in and says that he's hurt this bad he's hurt and I can tell you now that he's he's very upset. He wants to be out there with his teammates But hopefully we can get him back here for either game six or seven. I'm disappointed as I possibly can. And beyond that pitched I mean that's game five of the World Series I. I've pitched through so much crap in my career. That would be easy to pitch at this point. This is literally impossible to do anything with. Nobody knew what to think. There was a sense of shock inside that Media Room. As thirty to forty members of the media listened to that news and as we all walk back out onto the field. I remember thinking. Did that really just happen? And what's going to happen next? I was there covering that. Game for. Nbc in Washington. I had seen my former ESPN colleague. Tim Kurkin there on the field just prior to that press conference in Iran to Tim. Because I wanted to find out what were his thoughts. A guy who's covered major league baseball for forty years his thoughts on what we just saw. Hap what is your take on what we saw happen tonight. What magazine before this drug just goes to show you how difficult it is to play? Major League baseball if you're injured and he is really injured. Mark Sharon told us he's had that exact thing and it takes a good three days to get better and he said in the meantime. You can't do anything you can't shave. You can't move your head nothing all you WanNa do is just lie down and stay still. I think he's GonNa Pitch Game Seven if there is a game seven now. Obviously a lot has to happen before then and he's going to have to recover but knowing Max Scherzer. There's any chance he can pitch he's going to pitch. Did you think he was going to be able to play? I kept asking him. What did the doctor say and he said they told him he would be ready in forty eight hours that he just needed the shot to kick in and so I said just trust. The doctors trust the process and I mean he seemed.
"Dozo with Sunday it baseball's Jessica and does and Jess Wow that game last night was insane that's the kind of name I got to tell you do the post-game work and you go back to the hotel and you're staring at the walls in the hotel room wide awake because you have so much his rental in and I was what about you because eventually I did go back to sleep but you had to get up like three hours later to get up this morning yeah it was up at five and then you write everything and I know now I have such an appreciation for writers because I like to give all of because I know that everyone that I'm working with this morning didn't watch the game and so I basically the right everything that I feel like we're the highlights of things I want to get into all the stuff I need them to look up graphics Oh that's put me up until one two in the morning and the I'm upset if I walk into work and getting ready to go so I'm a morning person it's been the nights that like that's why I'm so excited about this game six because I'll tell you what there's been a couple of games this world series where I'm like fighting sleep in the sixth seventh innings. I've only got a few hours this one I mean buster there were times I was jumping on my bed in my hotel room liking the TV Blake I'm sure my neighbors the hotel do not appreciate I'm like come on the world series game six you should be watching it was it was a nutty gate for the most part we'll put it this way in the first five games the world series there was one lead change last night we had two plus all the craziness for that game distinguish itself from the rest of the world series and I've got a laundry list of stuff to get tune we'll get into all of what happened last night but let's start with this I thought you know Dave Martinez what an emotional night like he goes absolutely nuts during the course of the game we're in the seventh inning stretch and he looked down the field and all of a sudden I see Dave Martinez being restrained by one of his coaches and he's going after the umpires he winds up getting a in our life by the Japan and their life go ahead the one who's restoring him he's gotTa winds up being rejected first manager in twenty three years to be objected from a world he's game and then after the game you get knuckleheads like me going in there and ask you know the right questions about how he felt in that moment and what did you think about the call I Dave Martinez handled it perfectly because he's like you know what I don't WanNa get any that I don't want to talk about that and he said it respectfully he said I I understand but you know what it's all about game seven in so many words and that's exactly what I thought he should have done in that moment considering what the outcome was there was no reason for him to relive all the details game unless they lose like I feel like and not that you want to relive it anyway and you WanNa take the high road but there was a moment there and this is for the people who weren't watching the game live but when you're watching it live during the entire time empires had the headsets on that that the showing trae Turner in the out just the emotions completely I mean honestly watching the broadcast they were bleeping out every other word was coming out of that dugout because it was so much emotion it felt like that something we're gonNA WE'RE GONNA be talking about this moment for years because in that moment it felt like the nationals are gonNA lose this game and this is why it's GonNa be because of this so I think Dave Martinez would have been a completely different person had anthony rendon day income and hit that home run I think then he would have been a lot more but when you win the game and it's like why go back in blow up that entire call a hundred percent and that's what I thought was really smart by him to not go back and relive that because they won the game and they force game seven and game seven will be started by Max Scherzer who chess on Sunday comes walking stiffly into the interview room in front of reporters he When he was answering questions he wasn't turning his neck he was sitting in his wheelchair and turning the whole swivel chair to talk to reporters and he was so down he gets a cortisone shot which pitchers talk about is being such essentially a miracle drug and then yesterday when we walk into the Ballpark here in Houston he's in catching the outfield and goes to Intel's Day Martinez I'm ready to go and you get the feeling that this could be something that could fire or at the players I asked David about that before the game yesterday about you know whether or not the players might rally around this any mentioned that time when Max fouled the ball off he was on face broke his nose and the next day Texan picture instead I'm good to go and he started that day with the black is Dave said that got the players fired up I gotta believe tonight there'll be so much adrenaline Max on the mound especially because I mean from that press conference buster and and for those of us that know him he was devastated Leanne devastated on Sunday that he could not help his team and I felt like it worked in the reverse like he could not hide the emotion of how much he felt like he was leading his team down and because of that and not because that's the sole reason they lost by any means at all but I felt like the team reacted to his devastation and not just him not pitching the overall vibe that he was giving like I feel awful that I can't pitch in game that I'm supposed to I think it works in the reverse for game seven because he is battled on everything he can the cortisone shot I think my only concern was shirt tonight is we've seen in his starts in this postseason him go one hundred ten and plus pitches how much length can't he give this team now the good thing is you know Daniel Hudson Sean deal those two pitchers you can use anybody pretty much out of the bullpen and there is more options for Dave Martinez out of the bullpen but what we've seen is they need length from these starters how much length can shares her bring your stuff was just flat from the get-go the guys more pitches than anybody in baseball this year over four thousand he just he just didn't have it and I think it was because he he's tired at the end of a long year and right that's the question about Max tonight on the other side we're GonNa see Zach ranking who's also looked tiredness postseason and I would assume that he's he followed by Garrett Cole I talked to Garyk before game six and asked him about how his ability with game seven was something he was handling because of the flight on the day last turn it had a similar situation where normally I would pen on day two but since we were flying I decided to it settled in DC and throw my pen on day three which for this week sets up pretty much the same exact way and I felt really good last week on day three so I'm just taking the same routine did last week to prepare for the bullpen as I'm doing this week to prepare for possibly having to pitch game seven yes I think he's GonNa wind up pitching like innings four through six tonight what do you think yeah I think so I think this is something that you definitely see and I think just for the royalva nats I mean to be able to get to that grinky you know the point that they want to be able to do they're going to have to do it early and once they do that knowing what is looming in the bullpen and that's one thing opposite of the nationals is the astros have so many guys that they can go to and Garrett Cole who has been the ultimate throw down the hammer are you know for the scene the one point I have to make with Garrett Cole and I know we've seen it so much but the last time he has pitched in relief you go back to his freshman year at us Cla I went and looked at this against the ant eaters gave up a winning run I mean this is like I know it's liked onion cheek like it's been how long since he was a little frothy with the Bruins this is something that I do think fans that now we've seen it time and time again from Randy Johnson no Madison Bumgarner these star pitchers come out of the bullpen it's not as easy is it looks folks he's talking about it being similar to bullpen game he's never done it really he's never done it as a professional he's never done it with the Astros this is something that I think you definitely look for especially early on if he's coming in mid inning what what is he doing where's his heart rate because it's definitely different than than coming in just as the starter all right let's dig into game six last night we'll start with this golf clap or Stephen Strasburg watching that last night just reminded me of how I felt during the two thousand fourteen postseason watching Madison bumgarner where he seemed so in control where even when there were runners on base pitching backwards coming back and counts by throwing off speed pitches he was just absolutely composed and in the end despite the fact that Max Sherzer got up at one point in the sixth inning there Stephen Strasburg still out on the mound in the ninth inning what a performance the fifth five no yeah this amazing to me again Jose Altuva and I remember in the moment I sent this note to our producer in the moment I was like I don't know what's GonNa Happen in this game but to me this is the stories this isn't even the game like that fifth inning at bat it to Jose Altuve to me was the series why I mean you have a pitcher or a hitter up to bat similar to the Anthony Rendon in the first inning where all you really gotta do is put the bomb play take one of those breaking balls fine whole get to the grass score some runs and respond and felt like to all the guys in that order that's what he does I mean that guy can hit anything and Stephen Strasburg you'll get three pitches he started on what the

Dodgers post game analysis
"Sort it's just normal baseball that's normal baseball things running but here in these two cases with the managers it seems like they purposefully chose to go with their gut they chose to make these moves that were really unconventional that you would never do the regular season and that there was no structural benefit or structural reason about the postseason that you would do it and yet they did they a- We actually saw both of these managers change their behavior because of the situation and so the notion of shocking coming up the clutch for players which I don't have a hard time with seems like those may be loaded words and maybe not the right words the most accurate or specific words but the the the sort of idea behind them seems to be what caused those moves that managers that managers than elves actually do get affected by the situation and make moves for no other reason than the stakes are high in they're going with their gut in leads them to weird places and I wonder if that's a way of thinking about Dave Robertson Joe Kelley leaving Joe Kelley enemy there was it felt like there was just a lot of gut work going on there yes and by the way leaving him for for how he Kendrick which was obviously freight adding it seemed like a crazy move in a lot of ways and it worked out really really really really badly but maybe then you would so say that he got sort of roped into sticking with Joe Kelly is now he's thinking about getting the ground ball and Joe Kelly's the better ground ball pitcher and there were maybe not would solutions there but then he kept on Joe Kellyanne so at some point along the way it feels like Dave Roberts just made a move because the postseason there's something about the postseason that was maybe clouding his decision making or or causing him to to think like what this is this is too important I want to go against my instincts and so he went with his instincts and now is the disaster was yeah and I'm looking at kid Rosenthal's article today which is titled Dave Roberts Meet Grady Little but I am also looking at a report from for Hey Castio of Los Angeles times who says that Dave Roberts will remain the dodgers manager in twenty twenty according to a couple of sources so that is the seemed to just about everyone it looks like he's going to be back he has a lot of lives it's tough for Roberts because a friend of mine dodger Fan Texas may saying like He likes Dave Roberts in the regular season but he makes crazy pitching moves in the postseason and every manager makes crazy pitching moves postseason like they all do it they all have to do it they also choose to do it they all have crazy pitching moves and the we remember the ones that don't work out which is kind of like a banal thing and to say but with Dave Roberts by managing deep into the postseason every year he has to make even more he has to just keep making easy pitching moves because that's the nature of the postseason until one doesn't work out and then like fat tends to end the season for him and so he gets remembered for them I don't know if you if there was some way of counting up all crazy pitching moves that every postseason manager does has to do controversial moves debatable moves in seeing whether Roberts makes I dunno more crazy moves or that a greater percentage failure workout or something but yeah I mean he's made a bunch of crazy moves that that worked too so I'm not surprised that he's coming back I thought he would come back but I guess at this point I wouldn't have been surprised either way yeah will what you were saying about questions sir whatever we want to call it that is one way that people define it it's not that you've perform so much better in these situations than you do usually it's just that you don't let those situations disrupt you and get you away from whatever you normally do so I guess that would be a case of a manager instead of making the move he might make in May not that you would want to handle your bullpen the way that you do in a typical regular season game either it's like a hybrid of the two sort of where you do want to be ultra aggressive in that situation and go with your best players for as long as possible but that's not really what he right so I don't know what that was but maybe it was a one time only event last thing when matches are was running out of the bullpen celebrate the final out you guys mentioned that great giftable image of matches or running out of the bullpen to celebrate the final and Scher runs like ten steps in the turns around and is like looking to see anybody's behind him did you have a moment thinking about the time that Max Scherzer celebrated a walk off too early out of it was it was a walk off he thought it was a walk it was yeah yeah and the fact that the bats Max I wondered whether Max got eight steps out and thought wait a minute was how many outs were there or what is are we in but that's

"Allow with us right now is is EMMA LB Major League baseball analyst insider extraordinaire the great one himself the one and only Kirk Chin who will be in attendance for tonight's Oakland a's Tampa Bay rays one game divisional playoff game. What's going on man? How are you how's everything I'm great Stephen? Even a I'm at a playoff game. It's a winner. Take all situation on October the second this is pretty good stuff. You really really liked this one game stuff don't you. You really liked him. Well what I think it does Stephen Obviously it brings a game seven half. Let's fear to the beginning of October that that game last night was a really good game but it was even better because the poor brewers had to go home after losing and granted. It's really unfair that one of these teams tonight both worked on ninety five or more games going to have to go home after one but it does bring increased integrity to the regular killer season. It makes those hundred sixty two games so important so you don't have to play in this game but the fact that the loser goes home home makes it. It has a level even high. I gotTA admit him. I'm very shocked by that position that you take because you are one of the most fair minded people I've ever known on and to go to a hundred and sixty two game season and it to come down told one game. It's it almost seems grew. It really does well. It is cruel stephen a but this is a cool sport and I was not in favor of this but here is the option if we were gonNA play a best best of three. Let's say and you are the New York Yankees. Let's say you want your division and you get to host the next round and we have ties leading into the wild card situation and then you play best of three it's possible the Yankees can win a hundred and ten game name say in a season and then take eight days off before they play a playoff game. That isn't fair you need to you need to really welcome the teams teams that won their division and put them in the best possible spot but if you make them wait a week before they get to play. I don't think that's fair. Wow Turkey right here with steven a radio. ESPN news fair enough. That game was something special last night at least the last couple of innings of soda to to to to Gino's keynote hit it to right field identify Grisham to commit that era. I gotTa tell you it was great to see how electric atmosphere was. How much did baseball Paul need particularly when we have just heard reports come down to how attendance drop but so like a six year low or something like that right well baseball can use all the health can get right now? It's still for me at least the greatest game and yet things are starting to slip a little bit and big game like that starting out like that in a city. That's like the biggest game the nationals of one well biggest game. A team in Washington is one baseball nineteen thirty three for goodness sake. That's what made it so good. That's why that celebration was so good and I'll crom tonight. Stephen Ain't no matter what happens this is gonna be a great night for baseball 'cause weighty. Did you see the Oakland Coliseum tonight with fifty thousand people in your they don't have the most fans in the world but the fans they have our rate and they are loud and it should be a tremendous atmosphere so this is a great jump start to the postseason in baseball last night in Washington and no matter what happens tonight tonight tonight in Oakland who you have when you look at tonight's game just evaluate this this match up to me between the as and Tampa Bay talk to me about you know who's looking good in mismatch in what well I like both teams. I'm GONNA pick I like it matters. I'M GONNA pick the as because they're at home. I'M GONNA pick the as Ashok MNAYA WHO's four no with a one twenty-one year as it's coming off the list has been great. Their bullpen is pretty darn good and they can just ask Mash Stephen a more than any team in the history of the Oakland A.'s in the franchise so they can really pounded but they're going up against Charlie Morton who was one of the best pitchers in the game this year. I saw his last start against your Yankees Steven A. and he he threw six scoreless. Let's see was completely dominant and if you throws like that he's GonNa win tonight. That's how good he was so this is a toss up game. I'll just take the as 'cause they gotta pick. Somebody and I'll take 'cause they're at home. You brought up my Yankee so let's get right to it because you know that's what I really really care about. Tim Kirk Okay. I'm very concerned earn. I am not concerned about the Minnesota twins even donate three hundred and seven home runs this year. I just think they're allergic to prosperity whenever their face against the New York Yankees the Houston Houston Astros are an entirely different matter with Verlaine with Cole Whitt Cranky. I don't see anybody beating. These guys. Talk to me about my yankees prospects. The this postseason Tim Kirk well first off. Do not look pass the twins. Even though I'm with you I believe will win. This series do not look past the team that can swing it like that. Team can second I think the Astros are the best team not just in the American league but in both leagues and I'm not sure how any team to navigate through those friends for you guys in the rotation especially coal and Burland at the top and I'm also going to tell you it's even a there or is hope that the Yankees can win the world series that make you really happy a bunch of things have to happen of course after mash like they always do the bullpen has to be great great like it always has been but Luis Severino comes back and give them five dominant innings. Can we've seen him do and if James Paxton this good he's one ten starts in a row. If Tanaka can give them one really good start or a few really good starts I think they are good enough to win the world series with the team that they have now but I still have them as the third best team in baseball go in behind the Astros and the dodge transitioned to the Los Los Angeles dodgers. They've got to face these Washington nationals in the LDS. How do you see that matchup handicap that for me well? I liked the dodgers in that matchup with the understanding understanding that if Max Scherzer can return to being the great Max Scherzer which he has not been since he came off the injured list is not he wasn't that guy last night. He wasn't that Guy September. If he returns to the best he's ever been with him. In Strasbourg Patrick Corbin they can give the dodgers a really really hard time with with that starting rotation and that lineup is very potent these days. I just think the dodgers are more complete team. They hit the ball out of the Ballpark ballpark with anybody. Three stars in the rotation are really good. My key question with 'em is is their back end to the bullpen as good as it needs to be Kenley Kenley Jansen get the people out. He needs to get out if he can't. They're not going to win the world series. How wants faiths the dodgers fans having jetson? I know I don't have much. I like the guy personally early but I I I don't. I don't trust him. I don't trust them a big spots. I think he can be hit. Talk to me about him. For a second yeah his is down his cuddled. It doesn't have the same movement to better tad in the past and that gives fans of pause. They do have some other health back there there but I really thought they'd go get more help at the trade deadline and they didn't so they're gonNA hope starting pitching and power is going to carry them and they're hoping pinged Kenley Jansen his best but I seen him much much better than he's been this year. What should we make about the fact that you've got high payrolls dodgers Yankees you know old? I don't know the order in which is the highest payroll. You would know that at this particular juncture but I must ask you Tampa Bay is in the postseason obviously lowest payroll in major league baseball well. I do believe I know that I mean how do you explain the fact that teams like the as in the Tampa Bay rays notoriously alot payrolls manage to get this fall and sometimes further dentist with the highest payrolls talked about that for a quick second as a protest. Why baseball is so great even a is that Lebron doesn't touch it on every possession? Kevin Durant doesn't touch it on every possession it is so much more of a eighteen game in its own way because you could lose a superstar and still be really good you have to draft and develop properly like the as and the rays done you have to play the game in a better manner because you can't afford to make a mistake because you know either in free agency or trade because it could set that you back with a raise did they. They got Austin Meadows and tyler glass now in a deal for Chris Archer Saint the whole team now they've ninety games two years in a row they they are really good but they're really 'cause they play the game even a defense base running better than most teams do instead of just sitting back saying well. We're GONNA hit a three run at home this morning so we don't have to do all the other things so. Let's get all of this out of the way right. Now Tim Cook while you're here with me. Yankees twins you. Have you have one in that series. I've got the Yankees over the twin yes with the warning. I say it again. Don't underestimate a team that hit over three hundred homers with the as as you picked as over the race tonight which means there as will go up against Houston obviously you pick in Houston to win that series assuming it comes down to that and the LDS correct yeah yeah but no cakewalk they're not against the as but I have the astros advancing against the how formidable on the Atlanta braves not mean I mean I mean at least in these parts. We talked enough about them. How good is this Atlanta braves team well? If Ronald Kunia junior and Freddy Freeman are completely healthy and they they want to finish the season they are the biggest threat to the dodgers in the National League for me. They're lying is absolutely relentless and with some of the pitching moves they made young and Old Dallas Cycle and the upgrades in their bullpen. I like that team. I don't like it as much as I like the dodgers but they can beat the dodgers with the team. They have right now so the nationals brightest moment was last night because you don't see them beating the dodgers correct I don't because they're going to start on the road. They've already use sure they're they've already Strasbourg people. They can get them back in time. I just don't think they held it too. I was worried shows a look tied at the floor four. Oh five in his last night I mean fifteen and won his last pitch and fit then it was I think it was at seventy seven pitches and he looked absolutely gassed. What does that about yeah? He's he's he's been hurt for portions of the year and he's had a little trouble getting that rhythm back in September and now in October and he is so max effort for on every single pitch when everything isn't working properly even he can get in trouble because almost nobody's better than him.

Max Scherzer I'm pretty sure as does this game started. Let me just get in front of me there in the middle of the second shows already been in this game. Right. He started the game with a broken nose. You talk about a pitcher. That's tough max Scherzer through two innings so four one strikeout. Sure, she's been great all the talk about whether or not he could possibly be traded while he's pitching with a broken nose tonight. So a lot of respect to Mexico. Don't say baseball, players aren't tough. Be honest with me if you would have broken Yunos yesterday, would you be today? We would we be doing the show right now? probably channel michaud chance i wouldn't be here if i broke my nose yesterday you look at his face i mean i mean he literally he he's left eye is just in dented in all black it looks like i mean what it looks like it looks like a black hole over his blue eye and he's got the multi is he's got one blue eye one greenish i but i mean he's even more intimidating now than he was when he had the two multicolor is i mean tweet out a picture on the show account our insurance jake meltzer at jake azman show if you wanna see what we're talking about with next year's face i mean the tweets in themselves with people coming up with different masks and stuff that he was going to be wearing i saw someone photoshop them on what lebron were a couple years rallied so a lot of respect to max shire's for going out there and breaking his nose yesterday and then taken the

That's a some some good competition. Right there. Gives you a lot of hope going into him going in the keys gives a lot of Yankees fans. Hope they can maybe this can be that as we need or that. I am award. Widow we need. I don't think the ink is are done either. I think they'll go after a pitcher though, if I had to Yankees are never done the off season. I think that they don't get Machado. And I think they don't get Harper either. But I do think they could get a go at Corbin. He's the potentially the top free agent pitcher, Dallas kaikal is a free agent. Like, there are other guys that may not be as big names, but could bolster their starting rotation. So. It will be interesting to see kind of where they go from here. Only the only way up for the Yankees at the moment. And again, four point six million is what they're paying Paxton. So they didn't give up they didn't acquire somebody who's eating up a ton of payroll. So it still allows them the flexibility to go out and buy one of these free did get lucky with the the money. He has. Right, right. Is he he could be worth so much more. Absolutely. Absolutely. Okay. Other than that the Oakland as they acquired right handed pitcher, Tanner Anderson from the pirates. For a player to be named later. Sounds like I don't know if that really moves the needle at all he made he was wanna know last year in six outings. So. Who knows but the one win, no losses. The as are always making these types of moves. It feels like something that may look like, it's inconsequential. And it turns out to be a big.
"max scherzer" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Neighborhoods. NPR tonight continue with Kevin Francis. Rabbit up the eleven o'clock hour here on kmby are tonight just wanna hit a couple of the headlines with you before we get to our rampage interview. And we're also gonna replay actually replacing a kickoff the midnight hour. Fred Warner was on with Murph and MAC was earlier this morning. Yes. Just ahead of the forty Niners in charges will replay that for you. And then at twelve thirty Quinton rampage Jackson just ahead of his bout with Vanderlei Silva, the Saturday SAP Bela Tor, get massage and ROY McDonald for the middleweight strapper can wait to be out there. But something happened yesterday. We didn't get to. I know you like talking about this guy. I like watching this guy play for sure. But it's only happened seventeen times since nineteen hundred and that was a pitcher reaching three hundred strikeouts in the season. Got that marked yesterday. Unbelievable. He we were talking about Clayton Kershaw so much on this show. And how great he is. But max Scherzer, absolutely. If you're going to put him any ranking has to be second of this generation, right? Max Scherzer has been lights out for a while. And I'm happy that he got his three hundred strike out of the season. He's been incredible to watch so far, and there's a chance that we may be putting him above Clayton. See that's where I wanted to get crazy part is both of had very similar postseasons to. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Tigers in the in the fails. One has pitching a World Series. No, actually, take back clinker go, boom. Anyway, what I was gonna say is max Scherzer is unbelievable. And we talk about I I know I talk about my trout a lot as far as each year finding something to get better at and he does get better at and max Scherzer is the pitcher side of that he comes in spring training every year. There's something better. Whether it's a slider. Whether it's this change of others is first pitch strike ratio. The guy's incredible. Three hundred punch outs and looked. Yes. More and more guys are striking out. But this pitching, you know, he's the anomaly now he's he's averaging well over twenty seven batters a game, which is incredible. I just think it's interesting because you just mentioned that the of the game with everybody striking out with this record hold up or. Whoa. Hold up and have as much value going forward as we see the game changing. I just I wonder because guy like max Scherzer should gives should get all the accolades. He's been incredible. Like, I said to watch but the weight of baseball records, especially now with everybody striking out. I'm just wondering three hundred strikeouts. Isn't that big of a deal because you know, you look like? Like six strikeouts or six three hundred strikeouts seasons. Randy Johnson Nolan. Ryan did it. It's incredible. I just don't think we talk enough about the accolades and baseball, and that's definitely one of them. When Kershaw did it in fifteen year. Let me let me scroll through and see the executives truly was to ninety nine. Ooh. That was after the hit were you? We weren't three hundred though. No. I wanted to be why didn't they would've sold memorabilia, and then what had your name attached with the whole time the three hundred strike out of the season struck out. Kevin franson. Yeah. Is it rare though to see a guy like that with that kind of mentality coming in spring training like a MAC? Sure, Jim, right. If he's he's one of my favorites as far as a as a teammate of his in spring training wants, but just competitors. Someone that you you watch from afar, and you just amazed every time, and especially if he doesn't have his best stuff. The Nola sherzer game that had in August. When I was on the call for the Phillies was special. He had nothing. He didn't have anything and he found a way to get through basically seven innings. He gave up the two run Homer to dual Harare. But it was one of those days where you're going. This is why he's the elite of the elite when you have nothing and you make some turning. But I mean like what he had. Better than what most when you turn it into chicken salad as many times as he does it. It's insane. I really think about the Thursday night football game tomorrow. Vikings Rams LA. I'm actually. I mean, that's not.
"max scherzer" Discussed on WEEI
"Radio network on the call our play of the day. Max Scherzer reaches three hundred. It's I know that's a difficult number to reach. I don't know why. I just assumed he had done it before eleven years in the league to eighty four was the highest he'd ever done three times a Cy Young award winner. You look at MLB record. How about this? He tied a major league baseball record for two hundred and fifty strikeouts in five consecutive seasons. He is tied for the major league baseball record for strikeouts in a nine in the game. He is pitched two no hitters twice at et. Al strikeout leader three times a wins leader, I told you about the Cy Young award as well six times in all star. But oddly enough just a hundred and fifty nine wins. We'll get to that in just a second. Max Scherzer what it meant to get that three hundred. Yeah, it was undermined with enough enough. Guys, talking about know understand what the milestone is definitely want to do it here at home. Defense. Unbelievable support. I mean when they're going crazy. He gives you an extra journal and boost, and I just want to go out there and accomplish that. And it was amazing feeling the fans behind you in the respect that they give so respect love it two thousand four hundred forty nine strikeouts. I think on his career right now. So he'll he'll probably assuming that he has twenty five hundred. So we need two more seasons to fifty should be able to do that. He's gonna end up with probably thirty if he stays healthy. Between thirty three and thirty six hundred strikeouts. If he stays healthy should end up in the vicinity of. Let's add one fifty nine two hundred maybe one hundred more winds now never seen any. Gentlemen back there in Culver city Garrett. Brett, you're my baseball guys. First ballot hall of Famer, right? Like, I know that his his Windsor a little bit low as of now with one fifty nine but first ballot hall of Famer right you, and I've talked about this before the the era of the three hundred pitcher is dead. Yup. I think two hundred is the new three hundred. Okay. So yes, I ballot. And so my theory on this always is it works the best with baseball. I think because of all the different positions was there. A period of like five years that you were one of the two or three best players at your position. Like clearly the best player at your position for a period of at least five years, and that's like undeniable that actually you can go six years right for six years. Max Scherzer has been one of the five best pitchers in baseball is that fair, and that's my exact criteria for hall of fame. Okay. Like, I say I say between five and ten if you're the best top five year position for five to ten years. Yes. And next has been you're correct. He's so good. Am. I I want to see if I have the right numbers updated on his on his career wins really fast. Pulling this up yet is one fifty nine. So that was updated hundred fifty nine wins twenty four two thousand four hundred forty nine strikeouts and a three point two two career era era. So. Where we project forward for strikeouts for him. What do you do you think if he pitches five more years right and between two hundred and two fifty per year? That's another thousand ends up around thirty five hundred that would put him in the vicinity of he'd be ahead of Greg. Greg Maddux is three thousand three hundred seventy one and he would be somewhere between Walter Johnson. Gaylord Perry, Don Sutton, and Tom Seaver. I think he pushes four thousand. I think to fifty five years not out of the question for him. I guess that's true. Like, even if he's not pitching great. He's still striking people out, right? So if he gets five more years of two fifty I'm terrible at math. That's five hundred fifteen hundred I don't know fifteen hundred. No five times four would be two thousand twelve fifty. Wasn't it? I I don't know. Do we have calculator anybody ever calculator? This is terrible really good radio going on right now. So to twelve is twelve fifty times five would be twelve fifty to fifty times two is five hundred double that thousand and then add another two fifty that were if he did that he would end up with three thousand six hundred ninety nine he would be to strike outs shy of tying Burt bly Levin at number five all time. Yeah. Yeah. Numbers are great. And I feel like you almost gets lost in the shuffle. I do I don't I don't know. A lot of like non diehard baseball fans that when they think of baseball think of sherzer, I think they think of Kershaw if the thinking of a pitcher..

"John pant Michael Fulmer going at it today. Cardinals. And Tigers redbirds try and pick up a victory in the midst of a two game losing streak, but despite that losing streak still holding onto that bottom wildcard spot. They're a game better than the dodgers two games better than the Diamondbacks. Three and a half better than the Phillies. But they sit below the Milwaukee Brewers by two and a half games. Now two game losing streak out of the cardinal still hold onto that wildcard spot. Well, it's our sounds of the National League from yesterday, and as you can tell a lot of helping hands around the NFL max over the head of the wind. Here's the pitch swing and a massive struck him out at max Scherzer is done it again his tenth strike out of the game. Pausing the one one Swain along straight straightaway center that goes to the warning track. Delivery. And that one is hip the Sutter indeed. Pitch is hit the right field mile. Here's. Touch of all time for Charlie Blackmon tied runs on based on the tenth inning five. Three braves. The pitch. Swing and a ground ball back up the metal diving stop by Swanson coming to the plate tried to score. And he will be out. The win this contest five to four Bill. Thankfully, the Washington. Nationals sweep the cubs, and they're doubleheader as you heard the Diamondbacks losing an extra innings to the Atlanta Braves dodgers losing to the Rockies and the Mets beating the Phillies all puts the cardinals still in that wildcard spot in the National League are Bayer farm report checks in on two teams still in post season action today, it's a double header for the Memphis redbirds one victory which their game. One of the double header starts at two oh five today will send the Memphis redbirds to the next round. And if they lose the first game. Well, then they go to that second game of the doubleheader. And also you have the Peoria chiefs in the second round of their m I d semifinals. They're already up one and on Cedar Rapids game two for the today at four o'clock.

"Yes, can go to hell. I love him. He's. That was a good idea. I love that, man. I don't care. What idiom saying. Oh, great guy. Good stuff. Better questions. Yeah, let's do it. Nail them. Between Nola Shire's her and Graham who gets the Cy Young this year and who will be the most Irving rate actually winning a word? I know we sort of touched on this, but I'm going to you have to answer this right now who is going to actually win. Sherzer leads in case for nine total strikeouts whip. You leads in the in the stallion categories. As I say in the domination stations, matcher it is max Scherzer Jacob degrom, very deserving. It is not him. It is max Scherzer max Scherzer wins the Cy Young. It is max sherzer is my winner. I think I think I'm going to go a Dallas here. I think Sirs her, and this is also sort of projecting with these guys are going to do in September. So at that also in mind, I'm going to go with sherzer, but I think there's a part of me that feels like it's it's the grump here like he may be should win it again because I was like, yeah, we'll talk about this a week or two because I haven't really, really crunched the numbers the up to date numbers the last time that I looked which was out no, maybe like a month or so ago. It was sure no doubt. But now obviously, I, I saw some staffers. Like seventeen of the twenty four starts or whatever it was that that degrom is made all been against teams that are five hundred better like that should count for something. So, yeah, I think the the gap between the two are tightening, but I would still give it to sherzer. I think the Graham will win. I'm fascinated to see what sort of support Nola gets because like a lot of his case is built on the idea that he has prevented runs despite playing in front of like a uniquely bad defense behind him and not just not just that the Phillies defenses bad, but that it has been even worse than normally is when Nola is pitching. I think that's perhaps a little too nuanced of a case, quote, unquote for the for him to get enough of the vote to overcome those two guys. I do think the grams shiny ERA may win out overall, but I think this could be one of the most tightly voted tightly contested Cy Young races that we've had an either league and quite some time. This is specifically for Dallas. The interview with your boy bones, body Crosby had me thinking, what is the difference in preparation? You would take either on game date ra- leading up to it studying different hitters, such in the minors. Compared to the majors. Well, when I was in the minor leagues, we did not have the technology that baseball has today. It was what you could you could, and I'm not joking. You could like in my minor league experience to a minor league experience of the fifties sixties seventies, and that's not joking. That's pitching coaches and folks of yesteryear telling me, wow, you guys are still doing the same shit. We were doing back then we didn't have radar guns, so that was the big difference. You just didn't have the information at hand either. So it was up to your pitching coach at the time to do the legwork and maybe get some scouting reports from folks around the league. Your advanced outing department might have that information, but it wasn't something when I was in the minor leagues that was being accessed by everybody. So I was an individual who did pay attention to certain numbers, like walk rates, first pitch swing rates. First pitch swing rates with runners in scoring position less than two outs. A lot of that kind of stuff. So in the minor leagues, you are here to do your job. You're here to make sure you understand how to fix yourself out on the mound. In a game scenario, it's about honing and refining your strength learning how to identify weaknesses. When you get to the big leagues, the bottom line, it's about winning fucking ballgames and the preparation, you better prepare for that just like the SAT or or fucking ACT or whatever.

"The mound the mets after win that's the bottom line so and i like last night at city field you go into that game realizing the mets better win and you wanted to see jacob degrom pick up where he left off before you had the injury and he did i mean remember in the game he left early he had pitched four brilliant innings before the mets had pulled him because of that swing and the injury that he suffered then he makes the start last weekend against the phillies we pitches the one inning throws the forty five pitches so i think to reassure you that jacob degrom is back you need it to see last night and he was utterly brilliant not only is he striking out the world but what i loved is when calloway sent them out to pitch the seventh inning his pitch count was already around ninety he gives up a leadoff double right out of the gate to daniel calcio who's had a tremendous year he had own warming up but i really thought that he was going to go right the gazelle man but he let his as pitch through it and he threw five or six pitches to get the next three outs a groundout a strikeout a pop up he fights through the seventh inning and he puts together a cy young caliber pitching line seven innings one run thirteen strikeouts zero walks and now i think as a met fan at least when it comes to the graham you could take a nice deep breath that he made it through that injury and right now if max scherzer didn't exist shake the grandma would have a great shot being young contender the problem is max scherzer as max scherzer and he's pitching today so if you're keeping an eye on the hakin jacob degrom win a cy young sweepstakes you're probably need the dodgers to put a couple of couple of runs on the board against mad max as far as the medoff concern here is the.
