But the bad news Justin Verlander done for this season, likely done for next season and maybe done as a Houston Astros. So the expectations have been adjusted. The Three. Plus your run of World Series or bust officially comes to an end adjustments are expectations should be adjusted. We're going to talk to the great Adam Selena Sports radio 16 dot com in a sec. Up there at the juice box. But before we do, let's hear from Dusty Baker Dusty Baker talking about his Astros three to win tonight over the D'backs Dusty, Where would you guys be this year without Michael Brantley? Well, I mean, sure, we wouldn't be where we are. I mean, you need You know those kind of guys, especially in this guy's professional hitter? He's a professional person, You know, he's just try the leader of the team and you know he's very common, his demeanor and you know you could talk to him about anything, and he keeps saying You know, attitudes and voice inflection, and what you know is a fierce competitors. He's kind of quiet at times, and there he is. You know fun. Levin got a time. So I mean, Michael Brantley's You know, one of the The guys have been around among the shares. I've been around. I've been her house was Christian Vieri pretty much close to those limits. 77 pictures after not starting well, well, he and started 12 days. You know, he had a number of D counts. His breaking ball wasn't real sharp and won all the left hander's ahead over there. We we got as much out of him, you know, as we did the score. Was was still close. We want to keep the clothes and then we went to a very first priorities who had thrown in awhile. His velocity of figure would play good against against their left handers. He's actually been better against left handers and right handers. They pose a problem with all the left enters that they have. And then we turned it over to James Railly and, Ah Indiana, You know, that was the best we've seen. Firstly in awhile, sharks good velocity, You know, good location, and there's overall good game. We still left some. You know some runners out there, but we scored just enoughto. How difficult is that double play that Brantley execute, Especially that throw while he's still running out on that whole? Well, you know, I asked him. Was he a rollout? Left handed quarterback. He told me no play football, but he played basketball and that was a very athletic move and You know, I mean, that doesn't surprise me. I mean, you know, he's a outstanding at play now is a great play. Skipper, you know so much of building Momenta Masefield, Do you get the feeling that this team's best baseball is a hair? Well, certainly, you know, we just want to be there, you know, to get our best baseball. I mean, under number, 100. 62 game season. You wouldn't be that worried about Jose because you figure he had another, you know, three fronted, you know babies to go. And so you know the reason why Kaiser. You know, concerned and press a little bit is because of the shortened season. So yeah, our best baseball is, you know, is ahead of us were trying to get our bullpen together. You know, try to put guys in a role where there are most likely should feed. You know, our offense is better than has been, You know, then, and we've been Plan. So, uh, yeah, we do feel are best baseball the head. We'll just have to you don't be there to, you know, to execute. I was like, how the air and you know, maybe you're Katie these last couple of starts. How important is this? When you try to figure out what your role is going to be for those guys in the playoffs and the rotation and especially with Verlander out a clear spot now open Well, you know, I mean, we're we're We're talking about it, son. But you know, our main concern is trying to get there, you know, And then and then and then wants to get there. Then we'll talk about it and and try to go out there with the best. You know, people possible. Anything else? Okay, I just think is Dusty Baker on the post game show is talkto Adams. Elena. Sports Radio 16 dot com. Now, Adam, obviously the biggest news of the day, we'll get into the game. In a second, but that's obviously that's that's the second story that we're dealing with. Right now. The end of world Siri's or bust expectations is what I'm calling it for the Astros. Is that a fair statement by me today Yeah, but I think that was always Are you saying now for this season? I mean, I think, obviously, Yeah. Saying I was I was basically just saying officially next season. Well, yeah. This year I I never felt like Verlander was coming back. And even if he did, I didn't expect a lot from him. But I'm talking even like a ce faras next year. Like just the slim hope that maybe you know you would have Javy back out there. Yeah, but I thought that was probably always going to be the case. I mean, you just look at all the free agent that they have coming up. There just aren't a lot of guys behind them, especially with the outfielders. So I kind of thought that was that This was really the last year of the window. That's really what it seemed to be shaping up to be. And then you look it. The free agent that they were going tohave after next season. It really felt like that even more. So, Yeah, I think that's very fair to say that. I think that was probably what the expectation was even coming into this season. I wonder what the snowball effect of the Verlander Injury is because you mentioned the free agents and the free agents. Obviously, the entire outfield. You got Brantly. You got Springer. That's going to be the big one. And you got Josh Reddick. I don't know if Jim Crane was going to write those checks or not, but I do kind of feel that if you're not gonna have a Cy Young award winning pitcher and you're going to be paying him like a Cy Young Award winning ace pitcher to not play To me. That's got to come into account when you're thinking about writing checks for 31 year old, I think George Springer turned 31 today. 31 year old out feelers in George Springer and 33 year olds like Michael Brantley. For sure. 100%, especially when you're in the middle of a pandemic, and you haven't been ableto have fan at your games for the entire season, and no one knows if he'll be able to have fans at your games next season, So I certainly think that comes into play. Um And then you're also just kind of trying to factor in. Well, OK now after next season, Zack Greinke's free agent in Carlos Correa, the free agent colors of creation, so the free agents keep coming up, and there are other guys that are gonna have to get paid. And if you want to, I don't want to throw money away. But it kind of it's really tough. It's a really tough question that they have to answer. And if you're Jim Crane I don't know if you want to admit that this thing is over at this point, but it kind of feels that way their off season. No question just got a whole lot more complicated. And if that's the actually way that I could say it is that they're off you and got much more complicated than I think that I thought it was going to be And I would think the other snowball effect talking atom splitting a sports radio 16 dot com. I think the other snowball effect is From a perspective of a Michael Brantley, who's never won a World Series. He's gonna have other teams and you've mentioned this..

because they can't roll out the same cast of characters next year it's a Hey everything's gonna be fine don't worry we know it's not the case and I mentioned at shortstop and somebody wanted to know why I was not including Jose Iglesias in that particular conversation because in four hundred and twenty eight at bats Iglesias is hitting two ninety fours on base percentage is three twenty three and he's played well defensively one out there but my answer to that is he's making two point five million dollars is a free agent after this season and when you put up numbers like he's put up even if you wanted to do something preemptively to keep from here it's virtually impossible because it's his first crack in free agency and I go I see this is going to let it play out that's just the way it works now could the Reds make a run at him in free agency try and re Saddam well what else is out there what else is out there and what about Freddy Galvis in this conversation Freddy Galvis has been found money for them it's a short sample size it's only sixty five at bats here in Cincinnati but he's heading to ninety two is getting on base over thirty percent of the time again I think back to a year ago when there was a large and vocal group that wanted scooter genet signed to a multi year deal for years in excess of forty million dollars and I said wait a minute wait a minute don't need to do that for a midfielder and secondly do we really know all your scooter chat is worth that money we now know he was not as the giants just released scooter genet this week Iglesias is that a good year here but will he stay here Willie preemptively do a deal here before his his chance at free agency arrives in my answer to that is not probable not probable and all it's a big day in Major League

"And I expect that, they'd explore, you know, all those possibilities as they emerge, and probably the most intriguing possibility would be if the Astros are the team to make a deal with the Cleveland Indians for Trevor power because of all the history that you have there. Do you. I mean look we saw last year. Jeff did not shy away from adding Roberto as soon a- it at time when no other teams were willing to take them on. Would he actually think consider adding Trevor Bowers too much there? I don't know that can interesting one. You know, I think that at least consider it right? I mean he's back good of a picture, and actually Brent Strom. The actress pitching coach is known Bauer for a long time back from their days at the Texas baseball ranch. So be an interesting possibility if, if it was viable there might there might be too much there in the in the back of background. But I don't know that that's an interesting hypothetical. All right. Forty five seconds left eye earlier in the year when I was around the dodgers, it's clear that team has a big chip on a shoulder losing the World Series two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen and there is a lot of motivation in that clubhouse. What's your sense of that with the Astros after they weren't able to go back to back last year? Yeah. I think even last year it was still there. You know, I think part of it is they, they have a bunch of guys who weren't on that twenty seven team who were core parts of this team like Garrett Cole and Michael Brantley those guys have never won World Series. So I think that, that helps kind of keep that fire going, and these and these players also just, you know, they they've felt that sensation. Once they, they wanna win again last year. I think it was the injuries just mounted on them, and they they their offense regressed they, they didn't have the same offense at that your before, but this year, especially if they add a another starter trade deadline, I think they seem they seem plenty hungry to get back there. Well, as you know, Jake is you get asked the same question. I do who do you root for. I always say roof for interesting stories, and the most interesting outcome at the trade deadline would be Trevor Bauer to the Astros. That's what I'm rooting for. I don't know about you.

For five mornings. He either goes somewhere in the AL east, Boston and New York will sign him one of the two Texas. The angels the angels. Wouldn't overpay him. I don't think because they have other stupid ideas. Ranger by the way. Yeah. If they give them a boatload of money. Teams in the that could use them the soul the the front runners, obviously Boston where he just was New York is definitely front runner. I think some dark horses in that would be Seattle who would pay them. They could use them. The White Sox another guy I that they would love to have to kind of bridge the gap to kopech in for g Lido and those other guys to get ready in the National League for him. It's the least I think he goes to one of the east teams though, I think either goes Boston, New York or he goes, Atlanta, Washington silly that one of those five teams, I know it's not like a very good like idea that, but I can tell you is money's going to be around four sixty four seventy four for sixty and World Series of EP St. Pierce.

Felix Hernandez of Seattle Mariners to bullpen amid struggles
"Team that I'm just fascinated by right now as Seattle Mariners. They began a huge series of for them against the Astros on Thursday night. That's a weekend series for game set, and but coming into that, they had lost seven of their last nine Felix Hernandez is kind of pitching his way out of the rotation, which is such a bummer. 'cause they're finally kind of in the mix for Tober essentially, and he's just not really a productive part of that at all. What do you make the Mariners here moving forward? They'll get Robertson Cano back soon. But boy, they gotta start kicking into gear here because the as just blown right by them. Well, if the as wins keep winning every night the, they don't have to worry about it. But. We're gonna find out soon. I would think they play the Astros seven times in the next fourteen days six times than thirteen days they they have sixteen game stretch. Now they've just started against Astros as the dodgers Diamondbacks. So you find out the pitching has just not been good, James Paxton back from the DL that gives them that gives them a chance to win every night. But like you said, king Felix is just not the game Felix of all Mark Marco Gonzalez been roughed up a couple of time. Bottom line is pitching terrible in even if canot comes back and just hits the ground running, that'll help them. Certainly that'll help them. But you know, you're look at that Oakland rotation. If you just match them up side by side, the names you'd say probably a rub, but Brad Anderson's been fabulous. Chris Bassett's been good for the as in Jackson's, found new life. So right now it looks like Oakland's going to the playoffs in Seattle's, not, but you know, it's all right there in front of. Them and I'm sure that's what's got service in staff is preaching

"Lineup like jose ramirez we've been tremendous frankie lend or michael brantley set a great comeback year this year strengths but i think we'll still focus on trying to plug some of those holes and obviously the most obvious is adn ballpen help you can find that right yeah i mean i i think the biggest help that we can get his andrew being himself and we're hopeful that he'll be there but certainly that's an area where we are looking for more stability and consistency for sure who's been the surprising play a few this year on your team if you've had one i don't know that i necessarily say surprising because i think we've seen a lot of potential in these guys but we had a great young pitcher shane bieber fly through our system this year when we had some injuries in our rotation tonight as a matter of fact right yeah he is that's right and he's a guy who's just draft at two years ago i mean literally flew through the system within low a ball last year to start the year and we brought him up this year he's been a real bright spot for us and hopefully kind of spark plug guy that can can keep us going and built a consistency for gimme a little report on him as to what we're going to see tonight hopefully he'll go deep into the game he is an extreme strikes are exceptional command he's got a really good slider as well he is continuing to refine his secondary pitches and i think you'll probably see some of that as he gets more comfortable with the major league level with it but he is just his command is absolutely exceptional exceptional he can spot both corners will pitch into guys can dot down in a way to anybody he's he's been a real bright spot for absolutely it was oakland mike how about offensively i guess brantley being healthy it's been a positive thing right him coming back bouncing back the way has exactly i mean he is and for a guy who worked so hard to get back from injuries it's such a great story he is by far the leader in our clubhouse he's been with us for six or seven years on our major league team now so he's kind of that the guy who has been at the center of everything in our clubhouse over the past few years but unfortunately because of the injury wasn't necessarily putting up the onfield production that he was capable of doing this year he slotted right back in you knew that if he was healthy he would put up that type of production it's been awesome to see that especially with a couple of young guys like ramirez and lindores surrounding him in the lineup what are you expecting do you think this will be a abnormally busy normal what what what kind of late july are we looking for this year what are we expecting you think it'll be business as usual olympian abnormally busy one with some teams you know looking there a lot of haves and have nots obviously so we looking at more action than usual you think it'll be just about what we expect come to expect that's a good question you hate to speculate especially coming off of the off season that we had this year it was a unique and strange offseason it was predicted i do think you're seeing that bleed over into the trade deadline so obviously there have not been a lot of deals that have happened yet and i do think that because you've got that he's you call it the hasn't have not it's leading to a little bit of sort of that calm before the storm or lower teams procrastinating a little bit until we get closer to the deadline i still think you're gonna see a flurry of the alter the deadline but i could see it potentially being a little bit different than previous years can you give me a different set of fans can you give me anything that you see in the yankees and the red sox that separates them i can't give you too much on that i think you've.
