"mccullers" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"Old fashioned pitching duel boilers game to watch. I'll bet it was especially when you're pitchers going that good you don't have to do much except won't sit back and enjoy but You know obviously they ask a lotta lance mccullers as you would a good starting pitching and a good starting pitcher dusty baker on Mccullers and what. They asked him why he's getting one. Have any real kits innings like he had in the past. You know caused them to to have an early exit and You know you know we had a little discussion for the game and you know like we needed him to you know get the bullpen often on to see how they're peddlers was already games exactly but i asked for exactly what we need it. We separate bullpen kind of back in in pretty good shape tomorrow series and you know he was daily striking out and other places you know it was a double play that they you know Turn that double play arm. Strength is right man. That's that's one thing. You could never doubt in that situation but the eighth inning comes up. Here's what dusty. Baker had to say about that. You know set that kind of walk late innings. They always come back onto. I was torn between pincher for for lally. Who's on such a great job. And that like you know. Hey potential basic stealing threat. Come up that night. He gets on set in there and You know that was. That was great. You know talk by real well before that you know that a single to right you know. They're trying to make it to the toll play and you know he's he's gaming onto right then bradley. Capped it off but you know that was a that was a big deal walked that molly got started before we get to dusty baker set. On kyle tucker. He also about the temptation to give mccullers applete Complete game tonight had had to make a decision but no tenting for pitches at eight and strumming. I talked to him and say man now time since her home especially for presley. Because that's what you do. And so we want to send him out in the nineteen gave us everything he had and more but like i said you know i asked him for the game that i didn't wanna see anybody that presley fortunate for us. He got to win a runs in the eighth. Gotta have great pitching to win a lot of game but you also have to ask some clutch good hitting and kyle tucker seems to be rolled in the last couple of games and dusty baker kyle. Tucker man he was hit the ball. Hard hitting you know. like a was. Just hoping that he'd get up can state because he was on. I ninety eight now to. Hopefully he can continue to prosper. Guys still has. I don't know seventy eight seven hundred. Twenty reason twenty yards. So he's you know he's one of our key you know roy produces especially in it and that hope you never you. Don't wanna be on. I ninety eight you. Just don't you don't wanna be on. I ninety eight but you ought to. You wanna swing the lumber and es starting to at least last couple games heat up a little bit even though he's been hitting the ball fairly hard throughout the will the star of the show obviously was lance mccullers. Under a hundred pitches struck out ten lance mccullers on what was a pretty good day. Let's pretty close game to this. Except that i feel like my back singer was better today and i really do feel that. There's a couple of good ones tampa. But today i felt moved it around and everything so today was a good day. Great job mall the big clean air by carlos. Carlos got to be one of the best. The best in the business. Getting up all across the batman especially on those plays so that was huge and offense grinding all day against another good pitcher and they come in come together and putting up a great great as i think we all have a pretty good idea and feeling a windward locked into whatever it is. We're doing early in whether it's work. Just get that feel that. Hey things are rolling today. Well last night he felt pretty locked into lance mccullers. Yeah you get locked in. Just get locked in. you know. I've been searching through film. And just everything trying to figure out the the some of the location issues Whenever kind of come and go. And i think i may have found something this week and we lamented. I felt good today. you know such obviously things changed. But it's nice to. Have you know the conference in my teammate semi truck when when you get locked in zones you just roll with it. Seems like when you're going good In a game and kind of feeling it and you have more of those performances guys met great double-play you get a clutch base at the right up. Oh taco you get a big run. I mean those are the nights when there wasn't a lot to dislike. I understand that. You know korea struggling plate but i do like when if you're struggling in one party game it doesn't affect the other part and in turn double plays and you heard and talk about getting the ball across the diamond is so there may be no stronger arm at that position How tucker coming up big when guys like when bregman wasn't playing career wasn't hitting brantley brantley. I mean it's it's those nights seem now. They don't come as often as you'd like. Offer any team just. They don't happen very often where everything seems to go well As far as ground balls and and you feel numb been getting a clutch hit here and there. It's the those are hard to come by the other teams getting paid to and you're facing a really dynamic athlete last night and otani and it was. You got to have a little help when you're even when you're pitching that wealth is more than likely they're going to put the ball in play. At some point the astros had a really really good all around game. And you know they're gonna hit better at times. But i'll take those where you get three or four clutch at a great pitching performance as opposed four or five home runs and you are in a battle and you may wind nine to eight. A last night's was cleaner and and better at least optically for me. Yeah just makes you feel like that's something that they've needed him. Having mccullers be this kind of guy like i know that we i think we're we go through the different levels of evaluation of him. He's been really solid this year like he hasn't been really horrific anymore. Just hasn't been great great all the time. It's been the walks more than anything else in to see him. Go out there and do that last night. Like he's having a very good season he continues on this track. Guess what he's going to make the all star team is going to make life easier for the astros and he's going to like. Hey that contract extension. That was a good idea. Validate what he got paid. Some guys don't some guys get paid and then you know they go to hell in a handbasket and he is. He's really really good when he's not putting people on base and Last night perfect example. Like you said to get out in front of the count and the now they're chasing you the whole time and you're throwing your pitches and he's got. He's got such a good arsenal of pitches and what he's located. It's he's a really tough guy to hit and he had to be feeling like you said he was locked in. But every now and then you gotta get some help from your friends in this gotta be a clutch hit whether it's a three run homer here another homer there to put a team up or make a great play defensively. It's a those are important. And you're also common when you're not when everybody in the lineups not raking so it was really really good clutch performance by lance mccullers in that baseball club last night and much needed as a hidden tonight and do have bullpen available as dusty had mentioned and ryan presley did his thing again last night. Is sports talk seven ninety. We'll have the big one next astros. take care of last night. Heavy t was in the house didn't help and he only got two dogs.

I'm starting to put this all together. These guys are going to be in trouble and it looks like that. It was that way I can see what next that fight was exactly what we expected. Yada fight you again. Jobe Stevens I mean. Look he got taken out but that God is no dude. No retreat. No surrender with that. You're going forward and Jerry. I think of Jersey us.

You'd see all the fame if I hadn't applause about night hit it. I think George is one of the best to ever fought. I mean he's just any such a Class Act and knowing George I do. He's such a nice guy.

"mccullers" Discussed on UFC Unfiltered with Jim Norton and Matt Serra
"It's hard for dom at that point. Say of course. He's as well as part of the game and that but you know that's that's part of the fight game when when they usually step into the break it up. You're not unanswered questions on answered shots hurt. He looked to me and again I. You know a big dominant cruise fan. So I did want to see him take more punishment than they had to take. It was rough. And what do you think about Triple C. walking away. I don't believe it. You don't want it when he was saying about him believe it. I don't believe in a moment. You know a tactic maybe to make some more cash but my thing is I don't know man. He said well he walked away from wrestling. He was done and I don't know I mean what else does. The Guy Really got approved to be honest nothing is the UFC. This is a much bigger thing than wrestling. And this is his career and he's thirty three and not only did he just win. He beat one of the greats of all time without really taking any damage he took no damage at all. So there's no way a guy I don't believe the emotion behind it. It was not emotional at least from what I was watching. I don't know Henry my Jimmy is. It would have been a little bit more of an emotional moment. You know what would have been. No way cheered. So it's kind of like crickets okay. I'm walking away from the game. There's nothing going on. So it's Kinda of weird because I don't think we've really seen that before you know what I mean because usually when people even the gloves INARA saying they're done Man It is funny ties with Joe in there all right they take go to announce the winner ladies and gentlemen. I think he's fucking around at some point with that. It's not just the whole thing is just something to get used to. But Yeah didn't bother me at all but I think it would have been a warble moment. If there was a crowd you might be right. Yeah maybe I'm not thinking I'm not considering that Maybe we can wait for our first two guests to discuss now. Who's on I? I don't know who's on first if it's all wall Paris were did. I mentioned Ryan Span. Who DEFEATED SAM? Sam D. We found him. I'm looking for a fight. Dana white looking for a fight. It's available in Youtube. It's a fun show Jimmy. It sure is a million. It's easy every time. Yeah but yeah I was watching. This guy looks familiar. Like Oh shit. That's where we we found that so he looked great man and say lb dude. What about that head? Nam Choke that Ryan Span had on on and how we from standing. I've seen that before. I thought he was going out when that was going on it was sick. You said also you see the was like a hawk movie going like. GimMe show me your okay so you Sam out. He was already read turning redder and like smiling. Like a psychopath. It was it was a moment and when he got out of that and I was like Holy Shit Man. I was worried about spans homes and I thought I thought I would see him. I'll be was going to sleep with a smile on his face. Visit they luke. Galeb awesome price wasn't the he wasn't the fight you know and I like how he doesn't get discouraged Nico price when things aren't going his way and he's he's still in there putting a foot in your face and and then having a flurry where he's all but I'll tell you the scent they he. He's a killer man. He's a guy that's that's that's that's a very very dangerous striker and he's got such night and he's got such crisp technique. You know what I mean working with Youth. I loved it. Yeah and it was a doctor stoppage because of the I. Right yes yeah. Bryce Mitchell defeated Charles Rosa. We both had on the card. And I'll tell you something. Wow Yeah I taught. It'd be more competitive and I'm not shitting on Charles first of all create firearm obstacles. Great fighter and a lot of other fighters were and weathering any of those storms. That's right he was in from a very first of all holy Shit. He was in bed position to a tight submission to getting out of a tight submission. True a bad position. And that was the story of the fight. Yep He was dominating positionally and then when when he would try to. Charles Rosen try to scramble Alpha Braves Mitchell Price Mitchell would sink on head knob joke. Oh my goodness. How many twists their attempts are there? How many twister attempts Janet? It was guy he's GonNa get another. He's going to get another one. If not in his upcoming fights we will see my prediction. We'll see more than one in the next year of him. Getting I swear to God he's GonNa get Jimmy Trolls Rosa. Got Out of some. I mean I'm telling you. Eight hundred ten is but eight out of ten are tap into that or getting caught in that twister or any one of them he was. I'm telling you this is the deal. Jimmy homage man you know through through. I love watching Jujitsu Brazilian Jujitsu in combat in a UFC us. I I can watch the sub grappling tournaments. But I but I. It was my interest. I like it when if you lose a position or you lose a sub. It makes a difference with you. Mayo right now face now you know what I mean. Provincial that fight clean look good and it was like dude somewhat somebody. Thirty Twenty Four. I believe it was. It was such a beautiful display of Jujitsu. I chose Rosa. Who's a very good jiu? Jitsu black belt. I mean look what he did look just took many Bermuda's Bermuda's ground guy and more bottle. Here's particularly price Mitchell's on hold with them. Not Up in here was I. Don't think there was one moment that fight as good as Charles rose to is that he was actually ahead. There was one decision he made. I don't know if it was in the second or third where he seemed like he was having a little success standing and then he just got too close. I didn't know why he did that. I I. He made one weird decision. Maybe they can spur of the moment to fight me to say watching it but I thought he got. He should've tried to stay away a little longer. And he let himself get wrapped up. Listen his fight. Iq will grow will gain He will gain he will take a Costa back. Hopefully take a whole bunch of owed from this sure when when I see a guy who has a good team like Algebra has a great team when he fought Bryan. Caraway went to guard with a guillotine. It costs them that round. Possibly the fight you understand in a very close fight so because what happens is like if you used. The tactic is with that in class If you don't get it it doesn't really you know you keep going guilty later but the thing is in a five minute five minute rounds and you're fighting an a situation like this at an Ma fight you. The position could end the fight around and chew on bottom. And that's not what you want. You know what I'm saying so you really have to know when it's like Verdoux when he fought Came Velazquez Cave last shot in deep and he had his neck. It's like when he knew he knew going down this stopping. So unless you feel like you I had guys like this thousand eight four in training hundreds of times thousand times. I know this had to go to sleep. I got them right where I want him but he would get him around the neck and when he'd go to guard he was when go down. He wasn't achieving guard. He get a lot of times half guard. So you don't have the same leverage on it so now yeah you might have his neck but you lower have not where it should be an a guy who knows before like Bryce Mitchell is just not going to get tapped right now. You've gotta savage on top of you. Who knows the ground game? And he's making you pay for. It seem to like for dooming Ola Nick. I thought he went for a couple of times. He was going for a couple of jokes but all nick was so good and so strong and he did such a good job defensively Against the bigger as of seventeen pounds. This is my thoughts on that older first of all. Holy Shit I could've with high school. Both guys the forty do I believe. We're Verdun forty two. I know the guy is all. The Nick is all only. Let me tell you something. First of all he looked in great shape. He looked in better shape than usual list and think. Verdun looked worse shape than usual. He looks soft around the middle and he looked a little flabby. I mean he's never got a super ripped but he didn't and I think I don't know if he had enough respect for Nick. I don't know what kind of anime Matthews do. And maybe he's thinking. All Right Walt Harris. Who's going to be on soon smoked Olympic in the last fight? What I did won't Harris Will Mitra Jitsu. You know what I mean and maybe it was going play with this guy standing up. Yeah I had no time to. Wasn't that like literally within a week. You've taken the story. I think the same day. Oh the day before Al was really clips. Yeah but it just shows you. How any look like a beast? Then you know what I mean. Especially when it's destruction of all look pretty good last night a couple of shadow but I feel Verdun. We're talking about that fight. I think Verdoux went in there thinking. He could do whatever he wants until he found out he couldn't do whatever he wants then plan. B. which should have been played a is to make it a grappling match. He's on a different level. She Gypsy wise than Olympic. The problem is you get an exhausted. I know what belt he is. But let's just say this you couldn't exhausted blackbelt going with a purple belt. Who's not as exhausted. You're going to see a big difference but I'm just saying in class and whatnot so you get down. Verdoux crapped out. I wasn't going whether it was the strikes that Olympic landed which landed some decent ones or just the Zaidi of saying all right. This is not what I expected standing up. Now it's the him getting Zaidi from not landing what he wanted to end the not going his way by twenty one of the bigger Jitsu match. He was dominating them but he looked already weathered he will go already. Whether he had a better shot of going and doing a flying he get on his back and starting from there would have got a reversal. He would have been on top if he was gonNA talk with that. Komura almost finished over neck from more at Verdun on Yes yeah Oh God yeah that was closed. Yes he had well all it had to go to back to. He had to give up the mouth. You had to give up being top back on getting broken off. And he did it so he knew enough. He was not on the same level in Jujitsu as do totally levels. Jimmy you have you seen but when you're so exhausted will you can't keep the back when you have both hoax in disguise. Turtle this is get. Keep US somebody if you weathered so. He's just like screw this. I'm just going to get back up. He was not he. I'm telling you I think we're doom look pretty bad. The worst I've ever seen them and Olympic had. Hey you know he should be. You should be happy with his performance. Because you're right matt who's in better shape than normal. He looked smaller than normal and doom had that two year layoff and maybe maybe he lost weight on purpose..

That's what the problem was. No no no no. Well listen I listen. I was so impressed when I saw him. You know laying laying down those little sledgehammers and he's a short guy and he was throwing with bad intentions. I go this is awesome. I'm a genius. I know it. Yeah and then it reminds me of like if one of our fighters off myself in between rounds. Longo would be back in you. Let him back in the fight. Yeah that's what I would he. Ah and by the way we're going to talk about some corner. Work is going to talk about going to work here. Everything Right I. I'll tell you back to La Mama was saying that's what he would say in a fight like like that where you're so clearly winning and then you let this guy back then. That's what he did he for whatever reason if they might be a good reason he broke his. Co. Uk Bert Fico since the hurt business. You're going be hurt. He led him back in and he never got started to get heated. Never seen a of what happened in that first round. You never see anything again. So it's like and even to the point is I'm Greg Hardy. Nothing oven I don't expect you to be you know Gordon Ryan on the floor. But that doesn't if you see decastro was core. Doesn't look like he'd have a tremendous guard so when he was laying on his back. I know how I am on my back when I'm thirty pounds. Maybe it's not so late on the floor on his standup dude. You'RE NOT GONNA get a very ib very shocked. If you went in and got fucking looked why do you jump on him? Settled go to beat the shit out of him. Here's what I think less Greg. Hardy's lack of confidence on the floor. He showed first of all that guy was on the floor. My guess is to Castro's on the floor because he was probably hurt and it took the pressure office toast. He probably wanted to. I'm guessing he wanted to stay down. There and hardy might have taken that as this guy has got something I don't know about because what's me down here. That to me is the lack of confidence on at that point. He was having his way standing up. So I can understand but I don't know that. Raise the little. You might be right but Jimmy how I'll tell you right now. I did not move from. I was on my couch from six thirty till midnight having moment right and you know what I did not miss what audience I miss. What he said. Oh I might prefer it. I know that sounds crazy then. First of all nobody's getting influenced by people. Booing people standing not happening right. You can hear the quarterback during around you hear them like here everything I I enjoyed it. I was totally I was. I was not taking my eyes off the screen. I was listening to hearing what the quarterback would say. And it doesn't it doesn't hurt that. Joe Rogan getting. You'll call me a Jon. Anik were fucking great. I enjoy those guys. They were great. Let's go dude. He was a listen. I don't know if I was just Jonesing for a fight but the whole fight card was fucking good really good. It lived up to it man. It was an interesting experience but it I did not feel anything was taken away by not having an audience there. I think that of all the sports because you have see you focused in on the cage on the fighters black behind you could see in the crowd is there but it's so easy to focus on two guys fighting. That wrestling needs an audience because they played to the audience. Baseball every shot has the fucking crowd in it football. The crowd is very apparent. I there's something about two guys fighting in a room at black around them that this works do and as long as you have seen needs to be without an audience they will be fine without an audience a with a crowd a little better just because it's fun to watch the cheering Bruce Buffer. But it did do. It didn't ruin anything for me. These fights were what an amazing card. And we'RE GONNA. We're GONNA do a little preview for the card on Wednesday also. Obviously we don't talk anymore about the like who cares that I picked cater. It doesn't matter you package later. Also yeah I know you pick them closer than I did. Because you know it's funny when you hear me. Pick them. I go stoppage in third-round second I and I stopped looking around. You know I did not listen. You can gave that away. Let's call it. Yeah he he's GonNa pick himself tomorrow. I mean 'cause that these things are going to go wrong in a fight you know. Nobody's going to give a shit what you try to point out. I heard Tony Ferguson. Had a broken orbital some shit like that. I mean we confirm it but that's what I was reading. You know I mean Dude I mean let's fight the on well top and we also got the baseball guys coming on when we got their podcast. I actually don't know the baseball guys. But they they like main doing a podcast. They're coming on later. We go more in depth than all the fights when they call. Also some house of the walkout podcast. The hosts host of glass walkout. It's called the walkout. Listen where do you WANNA start with this? Well we could talk about the fight in real time if you want it all. But he blitz. Blitzkrieg fucking Rosen Strike and. I wonder if that leg kick had to do it. Francis got kicked and I wonder because Josh Rosen striking kick and I wonder if he felt that leg kick and just thought fuck this. I'm not going to stand here and get let this guy beat my legs up. I don't think he gave his show. I think I think he went in there. Throwing just I mean bombs. I mean anything that connects. You could be technically a better striker and hit the guy five times to his one. His one will decapitate you. That's the problem here. So and I'll tell he's so explosive. Where even guys that are at school so with the grappling Curtis Pleads Chain Velazquez? They can't even get a hold of them because just I mean he touches them. They're going flying fly it. I mean this guy is just signed by and first of all. What a Sweetheart. Back lovely psycho. He's a lovely guy he's a you would never think see my wife. Doesn't she always? How is he when you talk to him as he copy not at all the opposite? Just WanNa give them a hug. You know about the way Jimmy. I can't wait to hug you. Man I miss you. I miss you too. This whole social distancing thing. You better get over that quick. When I see you pal I will I will and I believe I'm not even a mention that I said first round and you sit second and like when we hug when we think I'm going to do go. I picked so who go by second round saw. Who gives a shit about that? The best is Jimmy. I put on my instagram to pick sliced on. I'm doing it. Wow it's as if you picked A. He's like wow Some people that are just chiming in like the like the you got you first of all you destroyed me in it. So they did a both are pigs and like man. You should listen to your body and all the time and I'm just like you before me. So yeah let's let's that race. The the PODCAST. No no everybody knows and they should hear it from you. Break Down your the former champions should here for me Holy Shit. Can I pick him well? Crews I don't know about I kind of agree with this stoppage. I think he recovered quickly but he looked really heard for eleven and unanswered shots and his arms were out to the side. I know he was just trying to scramble and get up but he looked very hurt to me. It's rough with that now. I know that Keith Peterson. I don't know if I told you with the guy grew up around me rubber. And he's an honest good guy. I mean he's not in any kind of spotlight or any kind of controversy. I believe he went to break it up when he was still on the floor and as stepping inge cruises coming up. So it's like I understand but he made the decision to stop it already. You know what I mean so anything in hindsight saying Yeah but look. He's getting up already. Made the decision to come in. So he's coming in and he's getting resolved. I understand both sides points. Yeah Amen Even Joe Rogan at the end was like you know that was I'm paraphrasing. But he's like you know. What do you think about the love and unanswered shots type of thing you know I did? That's that's part of the game. You know go likes him so you could tell Joe is trying to you. Know he knew that Don was really hurt just lost and he was trying to be too aggressive with it and it's hard..

"Your balls will thank you Bumblebee Tuna. Well as a guy that gets to watch all play all the time That has been an astros fan. His whole life that grew up in. Houston I just just so not. Just you feel like you know but everybody on the team should know like y'all made the whole city so proud and it was so much fun to watch everybody play and this is not just let this this most recent season for years now and it's been it's been a pleasure so I hope nobody is going into the offseason with their head down to low in the city of Houston really embrace us as as a team. I think like you said embrace like all sports to see the support that that we've gotten just on even during the regular seasons like on daily basis has been has been really cool so I don't think anyone's going down With you know going down I definitely think logo disappointed and then wanted to give the the city and the fans that that moment care. We'll work for it again. Yeah no no and I mean I think that's the good part of it for me personally. I know you'll aren't done so wasn't this is the end. It was more like there are teams built that way there are some teams biller. It's it's you get this after. This season like the entire team will get dismantled in your like loops back at you know stage one though those times maybe the the disappointment it it lasts longer. Yeah I think for us will roll. Roll that calendar over the rockets are going to do their thing. Texans playing really well so We're in a good spot. What is Amway goes by the city in an organization feels good? I got a haircut Before coming in today because great because by comparison first of all you were hat. which did IT'S A? It's a fly hat but I'm disappointed because by comparison I would've looked like a homeless vagrant. Your hair stays pristine I I got I got yesterday. Got The beard shape. How often do you think chopped during the season when I'm actually pitching? Probably one Sir Max. Br to starts so every give more oven days okay. That's actually. Yeah during the off season like now I try to push that that like twelve to fourteen day mark but it starts getting Laura okay. I got like I went like four months and I was like Lance is coming in. I can't this is. He's got fly hair. I can't fucking fucking live and cut the top like the back. It's like the top of my hair's just pushed back in my hat for a long time like the beard and the the shapes got happen. Pretty Pretty Pretty Pretty Pretty. Yeah yeah pretty pretty frequently. Let's talk about the Rehab that you went that you had Tommy John Surgery on your right elbow last December last November November of Guy You spent all of two thousand nineteen in Rehab which you literally completed to two days ago. Yep Today's go first of all what is what's the finish line there. How do you know it's over done? Well it's over because I get to go home and go to the field anymore and keep rehabbing tells you that like who moved the team. The team you know it's it's everyone is my surgeon and the team mm-hmm and myself and how I'm feeling because you know typically if I was re if I would have had surgery in July I would still be in for like another month of Rehab technically but that month four to five weeks would be just pitching in games. Okay and getting ready for to come back to the big league games it would be like Rehab Games We're GONNA we used that time spring training. There's no reason for it. I was games right now to play winter ball somewhere And we felt like that my body is in is in a spot where spring training will be plenty for me to get ready for the twenty twenty season and then also I have a little bit of an off season because typically when guys had the surgery surgery your Rehab for twelve thirteen months. You go to your Rehab Games. He roar into the season. You keep pitching so Jesus. I've unique opportunity to still get a little bit of downtime. Nice bounce back and then you know put in the full year. Would it look like okay during the process of this year when you're going and doing the actual actual is that like physical therapy every day every day for real everyday so I had surgery On on November six twenty eighteen eighteen and I had to stay there for two days flew back to Houston was in Houston one day in the next doused rehab so four days after surgery. Start my rehab. My Rehab was literally my first holidays. Rehab was just trying to touch my fingers to each other like this right so so that's why I couldn't even do. I don't think people realize the intensity of that type of Rehab and how slow the builders so like you've been putting up these incredible videos view you got. You're getting your pitches back right. Yeah you put up the one yesterday of hitting all three and it just it. I almost achieved direction watching video. That's always been such. It's a fascinating thing to me. You get hurt you have the surgery and then nobody gives a fuck fan wise until you're back. Yeah Right. Nobody's asking house. Of course I ask because I care and but most people are not like Lantana coming in November. That's the only reason But no it's like it's not a thing that people keep in mind the the consideration. How much work you have to put in and how much it is unenjoyable now. That is not fun work. Yeah no it's not I mean I. Have you know I had stretches. I had days where you know you. I'm not going to give up. But there's definitely there's definitely go these flows where you are. Are you know maybe a little depressed you you feel like a little bit of an outsider. Feel you know I kind of walking this journey alone Brian. Dom is hard to show to the ballpark some days. It's hard to show up. been get your work in and you know what the whole teams out there. Doing the think you're there from one o'clock in the afternoon you have to get their their earliest to make sure your rehab done on and then you're rehabbing from one to five or so and then you you have to watch the game from seven to eleven so I mean there are long. Days is in the summer long hard depress days. But you know all in all I I had a great support system in my wife's here in the corner and You know I had people bowl people holding me up and pulled me up checking on me and making sure that everything was going well so that support went a long way and the team was doing well which had to have helped a little bit. I mean it would have been. I feel like it's more teams. Have no because the atmosphere still is still lively. You know what I mean like you. You go to work every every day and people are still happy. Team sucks and you're going through this and everyone just miserable eclectic palling over it you know but we're going to get back to this bunch of losers. Yeah right so it keeps motivate a man like you guys go out there and be successful. And you're like man. I I wanNA feel that again. I'm going to be part of that. So it keeps go for sure at what point during the playoff run this season because it might have been earlier but I noticed during the playoff run you decided like we'll fuck it if I can't play I'm going to do what I I can to make. This is exciting for the fans as possible. And you were doing going above and beyond out of your way to hook people up with t the pegged in the back and the urinal the Yankee stadium hooked hooked him up with tickets The kid who got memed to death because he was the Career Surrender Cobra on TV and then they kept going back to that same kid over and over which which like hilariously on twitter like I think his brother listen to my show and like I was tweeting about that kid so then his he started tweeting his brother who's going viral. And then by the end of the day it was. That kid was fucking every. What made you decide? Like I'm GonNa try to do some stuff the fans and make this make this fun for them since I can't play I don't know I mean I I feel like dudes don't do that. You should be commended for real. Yeah I don't know I felt like you know the like the dude in the the urinal or the guy that was walking up the stairs and you know it was getting unlike beer and beer per autumn and getting spit on their this. They're trying to up their team. You know what I mean. And then the other kid was just like a sea of Yankees fans and every time the camera cut it to him he was like cheer. Cheer his ass off for our team so my these are like Houston people to like. They flew up there. Yes not cheap. The God hotels they bought tickets to the game and like their experience is being ruined. And I've had experiences in New York. You know when I pitched and I've had things said to me and beer. I'm the player so there should be more hatred or meat in. There should be just why you hate on that guy for where he was born early roles for Yeah I'm like you know what I'm going to reach out to these people. Try to try to make it right. Now get him get him to the world series and just show the fans that you know that that that we care and that that I care will though was That was a wise move your you. You're very a good at showing appreciation back to the fans who is showing appreciation to you which is very. It's an incredibly important part of sports. But it's also something that's like really tough to juggle an example being like obviously in his post-game Presser after game seven hundred Garrett Cole went an awkward route. I'll just say that an awkward route for the way that he handled the question that wearing the Boris cap doing everything that he did was awkward. It just made it. It was like it was kind of a shocking move for fans fans that the game ended. We're all heartbroken still and then you're like Oh man what the fuck. But it's like you have to. I understand that that's a balance right like as a as a professional athlete you have to weigh maintaining your brain and you're standing with the fans but at the same time you're attempting to build like your personal personal value in. This is your career at the end of the day. It's your livelihood. Yeah so if I like I'll give you just straight up like my honest truth was that I was obviously pissed off like most of the fans were people were upset that was like as Astros Fan. You're like Fuck Garrett Cole but then I given a couple of days to think about it look I get that. It's not as simple as it seems seems for me right. So how do you balance that like. Because you have to take care of you right. I mean at the end of the day you're Lance mccullers. Junior man this is your life you have a family. You're about to have your first this child like it's about you but you're also part of a team and you have to sort of like I mean how do you that would be the most challenging thing for me. I think if I was you I think I think you know. I think it is hard for fans to understand. I think there's something fans went through last year with Dallas as well. I mean you know no. There's no Kaikal Douse Cairo. Yeah there was no City with no no. No no no no Kaikal you know we we as athletes you know even if we only know one teams like Taos new one team his whole his whole six seven years here was the astros did amazing things in an astros legend. Yeah he is and he didn't want to leave the Astros Astros. There's there was no want in him leaving. It's just how it goes. Sometimes I think fans have a hard time understanding. You're recognizing kind of the business side. Because they're not in it and I get it because even even me being in the business side. I still sometimes have a hard time recognizing that it's thing as a fan who lives somewhere in and go so so hard for their team most the time. That's the only team you're going to know as the only people you're going to cheer for your it's more about the logo than it is as the player sometimes and so. It's just a fine line that you have to walk as a player because like you want to represent the city you WanNa represent the organization which can't get lost in the fact that like you also have represent yourself not saying that there are better ways to handle it then other ways and there are some things that you know happen that were disappointing but but You know at the end of the day. I don't think anyone is really making decisions. Trying to like. Throw big middle finger up like the organization or or the fans. It may a happened in the moment because sometimes things are sticky and they happen. Quick sure but It's a hard. It's a hard balance to to walk but at least while I'm still under contract back for for two more seasons you know I'm Gonna I'm GonNa make sure I always try to represent Houston in the in the best way. Will you do a fantastic job. I but I just like I felt.

"I don't care get someone from the af they'll be the same as LT wall because they can just stay on the sideline in street clothes, and here we go. Everyone's been waiting to hear about this. And that's Daniel mccullers. He somehow. Dave, go ahead. Stay now. I'm kidding. Honestly. I like I like big, Dan. I I wish he should be much alike about him. Now, that's the problem is he doesn't have the killer mentality that you have to be on the defensive line. So he's he had his best season so far this year. But it's still it's still not enough. But they do need somebody that can fill in at nose guard just in case. So believe it or not as much as I think he should go to going to have to replace him. If they sign all the while they have the replacement. I did all all actually log any snaps at nose guard. I don't know you're asking the wrong person for that. He's capable that. I have some step counts and stuff to do with and formation stuff that we could talk about with how much you even need a nose. I guess sorry. It should be a nose tackle. But yeah, he is capable. I mean, honestly LT Walton I would bring back Walton before mccullers because Walton could go to go at knows if you through that is true, Brian. Let's say you that's exactly what I was going to say go. Yes, go go. Go far only play knows if they're right now. I think they need most tackles that could play defensive tackle not nose tackles that are only stuck at the ones about Stevens is predicated on having at least some lateral speed. They can be I don't know move down the line of scrimmage. He can't do that. He stands straight up with his gigantic body and just flails his arms around like a zombie..
"mccullers" Discussed on FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball
"But I often talk about flirty as being the new Lance mccullers just because he has his incredible breaking ball. And then the third pitches not really there. Now, we'll say the biggest benefit for flair to is that his forcing actually was a very effective pitch last year sinker. Terrible mccullers never really had that dominant of a fastball over any period of time at the same time. They both have these bad walk rates near ten percent for flair and really low as INC's per start flared. He's was around five point five. Dive right there. That's so frustrating. So frustrating as a starter where you want you want your guy to go in exhibit that thirty percent que refers long as possible and that one eleven whip well, they're not going into or through the sixth inning. Then you just not going to get as many as you need faces many boundaries as you want. So the fact that everything was very beneficial for flared who's also to fifty seven Bab and near eighty percent left on base rate. They don't necessarily buy into that makes me think his three fifty seven Sierra is a little bit closer and right there. Maybe like one twenty whip. That's not a top twenty starter to me, especially when he's not going six plus innings per start. Exactly. So it's a so hopefully, he developed a third pitch maybe curveball. Maybe forcing is legit is just not enough for me to take the jump right now. Yeah. You love the cider on flair. And he does have a strong. Four seamer. But that's really always working with right now. There was a little bit of a home run issue as well. He was able to overcome because he just didn't really allow a lot of hits you had a one ninety eight average against and so those homes were a lot of solos. They don't really hurt you that much. But you look at the the whip and the strikeout rate at one eleven and thirty percent, respectively, and you still see at three thirty four yard. It's almost like he should have been better with those two metrics. But that's because the home runs were still there, and they kept that e are a little bit higher than maybe it should have been when you normally see that kind of dominance. Also, the walk up a little bit at ten percent. So I just could see a little bit of a sophomore backside not so much a slump or a complete fall off. But if Jack Flaherty went out and put up a three eighty five one twenty eight whip with all those strikeouts. Would you really be that surprised? Yeah. Now, not so it wouldn't ruin your wouldn't ruin your season either. But it would be something that dang I paid top twenty for that. And I was kinda hoping for something more. All right moving into the next group here. Still top thirty the next ten anybody stand out to you. Once you start to go twenty one in beyond I okay, I'm trying to remember exactly the person I'll say in the twenty to thirty. I'm pretty okay with this. If anything I like, the prices on these specific okay race and Wheeler. Like, seventy eight David price. And Wheeler is great. I'm not a big fan of Bumgarner at twenty two. But I understand it..
"mccullers" Discussed on Starting9
"Usually what happens right after I don't know if this is the case with Lance and the Astros. But usually you you start to medicate in an effort to alleviate pain in alleviate discomfort. So when that happens and all speak from guy all speak from experience before I would get my shot to go out and be able to pitch in play catch. My arm felt like absolute dog shit. And now before I went out and started my routine after getting my shot. Well, I was able to pitch in a big league baseball game. So that tells. You the difference between? I mean, it takes quite literally a half hour maybe for that to kick in. And you're good to go. You're game ready. And I'm not talking illegal shots. I'm talking legal team administered good to go. So that could be another reason why Lance by sawn uptick in Balazs. It was just one start. It was foreign ings in August. So there you go four innings let it fucking eat. And maybe that's win he blows. And you're like, okay. Well, that's why he was throwing that hard because he finally hit a breaking point. I would make sense that would make sense that was some your way task do already. That's right. It's what we do. You have Lance mccullers will be lost for the twenty nineteen season. On fortunately for the Houston Astros. Then we move onto the Yankees who are bringing back CCC Sobat the two we talk about garner coming back. I think we did in the last one, right? Oh, yeah. He was part of the the fifteen or sixteen names ran. Yes. Kind of like a little bit of a footnote. But that's about where he's at at this point, though. Yeah, that's fair. He's but thirty five cease about the coming back on a one year deal with the New York Yankees to nobody's surprise. I've felt like he was either going to pull a surprise tyrant or come back on a one year deal with the I I know that he said I wanna come back for one more. But I feel like that's kind of been the narrative with C C for the last two years where by the end of the season, he has to be like, hey, I wanna go one more. So anytime, you're at that point in your career, people are expecting retirement, and he wants to come back for one more can't blame him either. It's he wants to be part of something special over there. And I'll say this I usually would like to see athletes, but the toughest part about this is one you never know when your time is the right time. I mean, frankly, you would have to you would have to be you know, the ladder like wins. The right CC wins the World Series next year. That's probably a good time. To get on that horse and ride off into the sunset. But even been that doesn't always do it for guys. And so while I would like to see athletes be able to be in a position to pick. When they leave the game how they leave the game under. That's very rare opportunity. I'm okay with C. Just because of his attitude is grizzly nece his. His stewardship away. He has passed the game along teammate. He's been two guys. Whether it's in Cleveland in Milwaukee, like the the stint in Milwaukee, I will always go back to refer to as if you ever wanna blueprint on what it means to be a bad ass on the mound like in crunch. What it means to say give me the fucking ball and get outta my way you just referred to that period of time that stretch perceive. So for a guy who's kind of been that dude in the game of baseball. I'm okay with him trying to pitch until he literally has to kick the ball up there with his only working right leg as a limb..
MLB -- Boston Red Sox keep Houston Astros within their reach
"Is way out of trouble. Shabby. The legend do worked on ESPN radio and the game last night with Jessica Minoza with that call in the bottom of the first inning, the Red Sox struck, I recommend Grasset or swang in a live Dr, bass it out of the right center field. Cut it off as Rettig bet. Surround third. He's into score the Red Sox two batters in Leded wanted nothing. You could tell the Gary cole- was struggling for his secondary stuff and Rafael Devers took advantage to two on the way swing ground basically to left via Benintendi scores Bogart. So stop it. Third as federalis holds them up. It's an RBI single Deckers the other way. And it's too dummy. David price in the Red Sox had a quick to nothing lead, but in the top of the second inning, the Astros counter-attacked. Swing a line drive, fair ball inside the first base line into scores Correa Maldonado on his heels Springer into second. Just like that. The Astros have tied it up to to a soft line drive that just hung in the air and hung in the air and Pierce diving wasn't able to reach it in the top of the third. The Astros took the lead, here's a three to swing and a high fly ball left field that will back there on its way dawn over the monster Marwick Gonzales, a two run blast. The Astros have a four, two lead. After the game, Garrett, Cole would talk about what happened next is maybe being the pivot point because he did not have shutdown inning and the bottom of the third inning. After the Astor's took the lead, this is what happened. Jackie Bradley Jr. the plate bowl turns down the rubber now to one. Swing and a high fly ball towards the left field corner Gonzales swords Alon that was off the lobster into score Bogart's Pierce autists heels here comes Denver's Bradley's into second Genesee Bradley Jr. clears the bases, Red Sox by Iran Boston on top five four is that was high up onto the monster just inside the poll state of the park. It was still five, four in the bottom of the seventh inning. Lance mccullers junior was on the mound behind the plate Martine Maldonado and look Lance mccullers union as one of the best breaking balls in baseball in Maldonado acknowledged that what happened in the bottom of the seventh inning, which was repeated problems. Catching baseball may have been because his unfamiliarity with that great curl ball mccullers give lesson. Now it's left up to Bogart with bets at third to down the pitch outside off the global Maldonado. Haney Red Sox have an insurance run that one was up at a way Maldonado couldn't keep it in front and Mukhi bets, grants home six, four, Boston Rick came out of the Red Sox bullpen to throw the top of the eighth inning attacking headers and then Mookie Betts applied the coup gras in the bottom of the eighth inning. One live base hit out of the right field. That's with the knocked Evers around. Third, he's to score bet slides into second. It's an RV I double Mookie delivers than it seven to four in the top of the night. Then Craig kimbrel emerged from the Boston Doug ad. And you remember what happened at the end of the Anki series. He struggled to find home plate and there was some anxiety in the stands at Fenway park as Kimball started at night inning, and the Astros began to rally on swang in a ball ham left field towards the monster, and that's high off the monster. Now to Vail take the turn will hang on at first. He kinda limps back in there. That's an RBI single off the monster. And now it's seven, five next to the plate, Alex bregman who was red hot at the end of the regular season, the Red Sox staff, it made it clear decision not to pitch to him six walks in the firm. Two-game series. Plus he was hit by a pitch in another plate appearance in this case, Kimbrell had to throw them, and this is what happened regmunt back in a way to get a one, the pitch swing and a high fly ball, left field Benintendi near the wall and makes the catch, and that is the ballgame. Just the base of the green monster hold it in and kimbrel by the skin of his teeth to close it out and the Red Sox. Hang onto what it in the Astros clubhouse after the game bregman was asked about whether or not he thought he got it. He said, no, if I got it, it would have been out in the street. Mookie Betts was on the field after the game, and I caught up with them. We did great. No, yet out. We've proven that we've been in both games. Everyone was second one and we'll just continue to play are going into Houston. When asked you about a couple of pitchers, David price, you know the scrutiny that's been on early game, keeps you guys right there. You guys win a game. He starts. Yeah. I mean, he's a great pitcher, you know, no matter what people say goes out. He are thirty million dollars a year. For reason he showed about record cells work out of the bullpen. He's, you know, he's done great. Starting out of the bullpen anywhere you put up. You know, he's got. And compete Fisher. AJ Hinch. The Astros manager talked about Mukhi bets ignited from the very beginning of the game. I mean, this place energy of this place when he comes up too bad is is really electrifying. So when you try to minimize much as you can in front of them, we didn't do a great job of that today. But from the the first bat- on, he kind of set the tone from the very beginning. So it's why he's very much MVP candidate. AJ was asked also about looking bad's, going around the bases in that seventh inning to make the score six, two, four at that time, give a lesson the insurance from this word and the seven Makiko around the basis how unusual to see that with with its. He went around the basis that have to put a ball and play in on. That's those are tough in this in this type of series is tightly CEPA games. It's a long characteristic. I mean, obviously, mccullers abroad mccullers ended try to keep it a one run game with the way that this series can go. And it's almost like a Tiger Balm for me. So last to a couple of nasty breaking ball, just look like, you know, Martinez lost it in the people in center field or just got a little bit got a little bit lax back. There had a little tough time and Mukhi went around the bases. I walk and then no-ball plane is of scorn before this series began AJ Hinch raved about Mukhi bets in his impact on the Red Sox. And Alex Cora was asked about Hinch comments on mochi and his play. Give lesson. Listen. A game AJ called Mukhi ticking time bomb, and he kind of went off tonight. Do you think it was more himself tonight? You said you wanted to get on the air did a couple of times? Yeah, Jesus Margai they went to Stanford.
