"I think we can trust the samples at this point in the eye test, I think Nolan are not as impressed me even more than Christian walker in the fields. I think I can safely say. So I'm just like grappling with his defense. His underlying defensive metrics. Yeah. Oh my God, at 30, a third base, you know? He used to 15 DRS. He's got 16 outs above average when you convert that into runs. It's 12 is use your one 50 as 11.1. Yeah. I mean, I heard it was hitting 303 65 57. So that's like almost a one 60 WRC plus. No slouch. He's been bad at the plate. Yeah, so really, it's hard to separate the two. Like, yeah. I don't know, man. Paul Goldschmidt has two more stolen bases, so I think that that's going to be what it comes down to, Ben. Might just be those two extra bags he swiped. If the season were to end today, which would be weird 'cause they still have a bunch of games to play. Goldschmidt's got a three 82 babbitt right now, which again, like you don't necessarily have to discount that or the expected stats, which has somewhat over performed quite significantly actually. So if you think that is a little flukey, then I guess you could hold that against him. There are some people who will say, oh, this is retrospective. It doesn't matter. He got the hits. Yeah. I think there's still something to be said for whether what you did the underlying performance deserved that kind of result. Like, if you're just looking for a tie breaker, which you are, in this case, because they were literally tied wise and during the day and they're on the same team and everything. So it's hard to differentiate between them. And I haven't done a deep dive into their candidacy, obviously. There's not going to be a big difference in terms of quality of opponents faced or anything. That would be weird if you put oh no, I think I've read something very wrong with my analysis. Yeah. And I haven't really looked into the clutch Ness. I guess it looks like they've both been a clutch, if you use the fan graphs clutch definition, which is just relative to their extremely high, it doesn't mean much, but yeah, it's so preferential and when you have you're having a year like it actually strikes me as somewhat reasonable that they would be on clutch relative to themselves because of themselves is really themselves is really great. Yeah, so I don't know how you choose between them. I guess you don't because it's August 25th. So you don't actually have to. You can wait more than a month and see who finishes strong. So that's one reason why we haven't talked about this until now because there's no pressing reason to talk about it until the season is actually just about to be over. Right. And neither of us is voting in this award, I assume. I do not expect to be. I am not voting in this award. I am an awards voter I found out. Oh. Interesting. I am not yet again. Yeah, so I'm going to have to, can I say? We can't talk about what I can't talk about my vote before they're announced. Right. No, you can not but you can say that you have one. Yeah. I found out that I have an NL rookie of the year vote. Okay. It's only my second vote. Since I joined the BBW, which I'm very fancy. Yeah. Well, you can choose between some graves, probably. Looked at the leaderboard. There's a lot of doubling up in some of these award races. You're right about that where it's like, wow. These good teams have good players filled with love. Some dynamic duos here. Yeah. Today I had the following experience. I had the following, it's like a mic squared experience. So I went on vacation on Friday. And I didn't do a lot of baseball watching while I was on vacation bank because I was trying to not be working. Sure. And so I totally missed my trout coming back. From being hurt. So that was sure a pleasant surprise when I looked up yesterday and I was like, hey, did you know that that's my trope? And then today, I had the angels and raised game on before we started recording. And for a guy who has had all of entering today, he had had 50 big league played appearances in this season, I think he's added four more today. I have said that player X is a what now? About Mike Ford more than any other player in baseball this year. Did you know that Mike Ford's on the angels now, bud? I did. I didn't know that he had just been added to them. Because he has been with three other teams. Yes. Yes. Not really hit for any of them. No, he has not had on the angels now. The weird and wonderful and terrible thing about the angels is that when they pick you up, it seems like you are bad and clean up that day. Even if they just picked you up off the metaphorical scrap heap, essentially, the discard pile from other big league teams, somehow you are slotted in at the cleanup. He did go to for four. So good for Mike fort, but yeah, good for my Ford. That's not the mic that you want. Bed and clean up in that lineup ideally. Right, and now sitting here, I realize that mostly this is a continuation of the angels season long plot to just profoundly confuse us about who is on their roster by doubling up on names or having names that are quite similar. So I hope that Mike Ford does well, but if, you know, in the off season he manages to end up somewhere that doesn't also employ Mike drought. That might be less confusing to some of us, particularly if we go on vacation. Yeah. Okay. Well, it's a pleasant surprise. Oh yeah. He's back because it's often been an unpleasant surprise that he has been absent. Yeah. All right, let's finish with a little step last barrage here. If I saw something again as I will be asked and then the teaser takes you to discuss it at length and lies it pour us in a minute. Is to dance.

"To the Mariners for Kevin padlo, cash to the Mariners for Mike Ford, cash to the Phillies for Corey Oswald, Mike Ford to the Mariners for cash, yes, you read that right, Mike Ford dealt again. Rio de band to the Astros for Michael papierski and Alex blandino in cash to the Mariners for Stuart Fairchild, obviously none of these trades is more than a minor move, only the ban one received even a little bit of attention, mostly because diban was more of a fan favorite than an impact player, still this streak of being involved in 6 consecutive trades seemed notable to me. I would suspect that a team being involved in something like three trades in a row is relatively common because teams often make corresponding moves. However, I could not tell you if being involved in 6 consecutive trades is something that happens once or twice a decade or a rarity. My question, what is the record for consecutive trades that have all involved the same team and how common is this streak of 6? And as far as Ryan Nelson was able to determine, this is unprecedented. This is never happened, actually. So it is very rare. The previous record was four trades. Which has happened 11 times. I will put a list of those instances online, but 6 has never happened. And I was wondering if these happened on the same days as other trades, how would you determine whether they were chronologically consecutive and Ryan said that was irrelevant because for all of the longest streaks they were the only trades on those respective days. So even if we could account for the time of day, it wouldn't return any longer streaks. So yeah, this was an unprecedented bit of busy dealing with a lot of inconsequential trades. I guess consequential for the players involved. Yeah. Other than Mike Ford. Maybe, but yes, a little furry of 6 trades by one team uninterrupted by other trades. That seemingly has never happened before, so I don't have a whole lot to say about it other than, yeah, that was weird. We were not deceiving yourself Nathaniel, that was as strange as it seemed. And I guess it makes sense that Jerry de poto would be involved in at least some of any time you have any type of record trade activity. It's a safe bet that cherry is going to be involved in some of it. Yeah, Jerry or agent. They would have led my leader board. Yes, that's the only strange thing that there was an NL west team and Jerry depot involved. And it was not the Padres. The other end of this house. All right, and then in that same genre of simple answers to complicated questions, this was a question from Zach, who noted that a way teams went 11 and four that is road teams went 11 and four on Friday, I believe this was, and he asked in the effectively wild Discord group, anyone know of an easy way to look up times when something like that has happened. I'm assuming it's not particularly notable, but would be nice to know. And indeed, Ryan looked this up, and he found only once in history did road teams go undefeated on a day with ten plus games. That was July 30th, 1890 when road teams went 12 an hour, so that was a singular occurrence away teams road teams went 15 and 9 on May 30th, 1914, that is the most away wins or road wins in one day. Wow. 14 and two happened on June 21st, 1964, 14 and three happened on July 26th, 1964, same year, and June 28th, 2014. Now home teams went 15 O on August 11th, 2015. So you would expect that if either side was going to go 15 to no, it would be home teams which have home shield advantage. That's the only 15 and O in either direction or I guess the only better than 12 O in either direction. And fellow Patreon supporters Xander noted he was calculating the odds of this happening. He said home teams win 54% of the time, roughly, the odds of 15 and O, assuming each game is a 54% weighted coin flip, roughly one in 10,000 in reality, the odds may be longer than that because the chance of getting successful outcomes on two 54% inches or better than getting the same results on one 64% chance and one 44% chance, unless the home team is on that particular day we're just disproportionately better teams than their opponents anyway. He estimated just based on that basic math that this should happen one in 10,000 trials. Well, Ryan noted there have been thus far 9800 days with ten plus games. Wow. So that is right on. It's basically one in 10,000 odds and just about one in 10,000 occurrences. So that's kind of cool. Yeah. Works out that way. And last question, this is from Jason, who said, in yesterday's Yankees versus Orioles game, Josh Donaldson and Anthony Rizzo hit back to back home runs in the top of the 9th inning. This was the Yankees MLB leading fourth back to back home run and Anthony Rizzo has been a part of all four. I was wondering whether this is some kind of record, what player has hit the most back to back homers in a single season is Rizzo on pace to beat this record, has a player ever been part of every one of their teams back to back homers in a single season would love to know if any of this is significant. So answers to those questions again from Ryan, whom you can follow on Twitter at RS Nelson 23. Here are all the stats on back to back homers. So the record for most back to back homers in a season, and this is counting total homers, not pairs or triplets of homers, but just all of the homers that were part of back to backs was 35 for the 1996 Mariners, so the 1996 Mariners, they hit back to back homers 16 times and back to back to back homers once so that was a total of 35. Then after that, you had the 2016 Orioles with 34, the 2019 braves with 32, the 96 Orioles 32, 1977 Red Sox 31, 2000 White Sox and cardinals with 31, 2001 rockies with 30, 1964 twins 30 and 2001 rangers 30. So lots of high home run years there. Of course, you have 2019..

"Downtown Seattle northwest news radio news time is 6 O 6 I want to take a closer look at a story that I think is a lot bigger than perhaps the headline suggests the contract ratification votes began today for more than 25,000 grocery store workers across western Washington This is significant because these contracts include historic pay increases My colleague John Lucien joins me here in the studio which John what do you know Well Brian we're talking about two contracts here but the Fred Meyer deal stands out because parent company Kroger is notoriously stingy not what you'd call employee friendly But Kroger is making major concessions We're talking about pay increases for employees across the board and for some workers that's going to be life-changing Union rep will Peterson is a cashier at the Fred Meyer and Everett We feel like we've been taken for granted for so long And now in this contract we feel like we're being validated and recognized the importance of what we contribute Those pay increases also come with pay equity jobs that historically paid less are going to pay more in some cases a lot more I can tell you as a past year working on the front line during the height of the pandemic it's been difficult to get support we've needed The horror stories have made headlines grocery store workers who became homeless sold their Plaza at blood plasma at blood banks and turned to food stamps because Brian they could not make a living working at Kroger owned Fred Meyer And I don't mean to pick out this particular company but we've all heard the stories of the record profits these grocery chains brought in during the pandemic with so many people ordering their groceries online and yet there was no equity until now Well you know it's interesting as you hear these kinds of stories from people who worked at Starbucks And other companies that saw huge business business increases And the workers had to shoulder the extra work you know preparing an order for pickup is much more labor intensive In some cases some of these workers are going to see a 7 to $8 an hour increase in pay over the three year term of this contract agreement We were talking about this earlier and you told me that during the last deal they had set up these safety committees there at the store And it was something that they really couldn't pull off with because of the pandemic rules but now that they're going to be able to take a bite out of those safety concerns You know as I was talking to someone at the united food and commercial workers union they perked up a little bit when that subject came up Yeah there wasn't much they could do because they were an uncharted territory but now with these safety committees they can do all sorts of stuff It could have to do with mass It could have to do with lighting and parking lots because employees have to leave at the end of the night In some cases well all those parking lots are probably dark and in some cases more so than others And that's a safety concern Well it's good to hear that these grocery workers are going to be taking care of John lobert Thank you for your insight this afternoon You betcha It is 6 O 8

"That's when you start to see it's like you with the nuggets sometimes when you see starter go down. You don't feel it as much the starting lineup. Because you know you like your sixth seventh eighth man coming in you start to feel it when the benches on there because now you got your knife. Tenth man in for the broncos. That's kind of that similar spot in when they're in the three four in the nickel situation. You might not feel it as much. But it's going to be when they're in that dime because the idea when they were in the diamonds like man you've got the best collective for cornerback in the game but with darby being out. You know it's kyle fuller patrick's for tan and it's bryce callahan and the nickel who's in the diamond. That's you know. what is that look like. Mike ford carry vincent. Those are. it's just you can't just go all right. Well they'll be fine next man up. Well justin stern ed. You really excited see him. Take the next step in the middle.

It's not always just the next man in the starting lineup. It starts to show up on the the backup side to and so. That's where if you're looking at this game this weekend. You're foolish not to at least consider all the injuries that the broncos have already had in this young season but that aside obviously we know that's gonna be a big one teddy bridgewater lot of pressure on him this weekend three games..

You know somebody is added behind who they have left which sam darnold on. Pj walker so yes pj walker from the other league. I think the xfl came right Is now backing up. Sam darnold who not too many gonna make students season as the starter so. Pj might have a chance. But at least he'll you know they're trying to get somebody to add for the practice practice squad but the biggest move was releasing a joey. Sly carolina was so confident in the kicker coming into camp that no competition was created his struggles force a trade with the giants last week. Four ryan's naito So the panthers will enter the season with a kicker who has no attempts in a regular season game. It's a very risky situation. Linebacker joe josh minds. Wide receiver omar bayless running back spencer brown anymore. All join that party of people who had to pack up Season ending injuries. Include a long snapper.

"Loved his finish his career in detroit. So i don't think that's likely Winds haven't shown any expectations to move. Peninsula will to left tackle. I know a lot of people are concerned about taking an offense of declan. The top tend changing his position and and rightfully. So i mean it. It's it's a risk. But vanessa will played right tackle in high school so it's not a completely born position to him and and so far it seems like he's adjusting. Pretty okay with with your offensive line of the lions have in the last like set of years like like back. Even almost like seventy years had really good success with drafting offensive lineman both ones that stay with the team and even ones that leave the team in our starting elsewhere. There's a whole bunch of live just around the league that were drafted by the lions Starting in the nfl is that is that coaches. is that someone in the organization. That really has a great. I for for lineman. Is there any reason why the lions are having such success with with offensive line it. I mean it's a good question. I would say it was one thing that bob quinn was pretty pretty darn good at he. He has a especially in the draft. He has a pretty good reputation of who drafted graham glasgow's one of those examples of guy who in around anymore but it's still pretty much thriving in the league but you know they're offensive line. Coach has been around just for a couple years. Obviously there's a new gm In town now. So we'll see how penny sewell works out. But i guess. I'd say i would just testament to to bob gwynn and and the one maybe the one thing he did pretty well while he was here In the past six years or so unfortunately never really all came together on the field lines obviously haven't had a good run game really since barry sanders with around and staffer beat up pretty much the entire twelve years that he was here so it seemed like he was just about. You know the the pieces were coming together. But for whatever reason they just never came together at once to just completely veer off track. Your jeffrey did your wife brea during laughing. I saw something happened. offs oscar. Did you just get a beverage. It's usually something alcoholic. I'm guessing some tonight so I'll maybe we'll leave it at that. It's some it's black. T. honey lemon and what a ski. Because i have knocked down my throat. Okay back to your scheduled content jeremy for this game of course Obviously every team the preseason has their own position battles Us being steeler fans not known those depth spots of course in the lions what should be. We'd be looking out for the detroit side of the ball. Whose kinda going head. yeah that's a good question i mean. There's there's a lot since you know. This is a team that that changed basically over half of the roster in the past few months or so so there's really a lot of new things moving pieces here i would say. The wide receiving core is something that i think. They're still trying to figure out. I think tyrone williams is going to be there number one but obviously this is a team that lost really everyone in the water core. This offseason lav marvin jones. They lost gaudy lost. Danny amendola they lost williams like jamal should say so it. It's a clean slate. It's literally none of the guys basically from last year returning outside of quinta safest who's probably a depth player. But you got you got a. I mean you got tiroler williams number one and everything else is up for grabs. Listen as i said. I would say most likely the starting nickel or i should say the starting slot receiver is a montereau saint brown. And he's a guy that you're gonna have a lot of fun watching 'cause he is an intense player. He's been kind of lighten up camp And and i imagine he'll play a good chunk in the first quarter to then outside that. Like i said like rashad. Perriman is a guy who's been around the legal out already and hasn't really made an impression yet. This will probably be his first opportunity to play in the preseason safest as i mentioned a a amid round pick last year. Then it's just kind of a bunch of unknowns to be honest and so we'll see what plays out there. And then i would say on the defensive side of the ball. It's cornerback it the lines are trying to figure out you know what they have there. I think the two starters are kind of locked in jeff okuda and amani or warrior. Two guys that are recent draft picks but haven't really proven at this level yet so They're going to have to show up in the preseason to to really build some confidence then again beyond that a lot of questions to do a third round. Pick this year And then and they've done a lot of shuffling since then so they just moved to a safety to to quarter. They moved to a nickel. Quarter the outside so in. Mike ford so You know if you're really interested in the lines. Look like in the in the second half. There's going to be a lot of kind of untested guys. They're on the outside corners so it might be an opportunity for some of your your depth wide receivers to kind of pop off there and maybe the third and fourth quarters jumping off really really quick. I gotta call them jeremy on his ability to Spout these names just an roster names detroit. It's so good for you. I'm glad the steelers don't have this This name thing but the pronunciation pronunciation guide is your friend there. It's to be fun watching people. Try and call this preseason game because the land but you you mentioned that turnover on the roster and the biggest one has to be at the quarterback position What are the thoughts right. Now on jared goffin matthew stafford being swapped. Well i think most people agreed at the time that it was basically as good of a deal as the lines could have gotten. I mean two first round picks in a third round pick is is quite a haul. We don't see the sort of thing happen very often and win the lions. Can you know part with a guy who by all means. Maybe maybe the best quarterback in franchise history in an amicable way. Considering how things broke apart with barry sanders and calvin johnson charlie patch. Maybe a little bit of just to see them. Kinda partways in in a mutual way that that worked out for both sides That was kind of a relief. Now getting jared goff in return is definitely a part that the thing that kinda splits. The lions fan base in half. I think a lot of people wanting no part of him and would have rather than see them. Go and use a draft pick on a rookie quarterback or go get someone else and you know early. Reports in camper are up and down It's an adjustment. First of all. Like i think i think. Sometimes you expect jared goff to do all the things that matthew stafford did. And he's just not that quarterback he's gonna succeed in different ways and the offense is gonna look a lot different. They aren't gonna take as many shots. Under jared goff third. They're going to do a lot of underneath things and and they really have a receiving core..

"Yeah and i wonder if the defensive stuff is playing a role in the offensive stuff now right because the yankees feel he can be a shortstop. We've seen him at second. We would all agree better secondary's shortstop and they put themselves in a tough spot there because of their the rest of their infield situation so he also trades talk man. That talked has not been great for san francisco. He's had some moments but he played defense for the defensive player for them he brought in door. You know he's not like he's sitting around not doing anything. He's tried to do it as best. He can much like he has done over the past couple of years. You don't wanna be brought in our shelhah brought in talk in that year. He brought up. mike ford. I mean there are a lot of things that he has done over the years. That actually have worked out for him. But now asking guys like frazier and you're asking guys like labor torres just the baseball players that we project you to be and we'd be fine but that's not the case and same thing would stan. I'm not saying that stands in a 'nigma is what he is. He's a two week superstar and a two week no show and it makes the numbers. Look good at end of the year and they're not when you watch him every day. I would agree halfway point coming after this. Four game series with the angels. Shohei ohtani friends come to town.

"Three runs eight eight strikeouts but he did run into some patrol issues in that inning and gets him with a bull homer in fourth and then the yankees take the lead from their keer maar tire credit to the bullpen. And this one. Though peralta lawai green chapman and sets combined i six shutout innings extra tip of the cap and sessa who came into the tenth and eleventh with a runner on second. Just got out of it. No problem one-two-three lychees been. I talked about him in spring. And no one really you guys. That no really idea who was this guy's been nails now. He doesn't give hard hits. He's a he's like he's top one percent in Hard hit rate in holy. I think that maybe i mean tuesday was a big situation but for the most part i feel like he doesn't come in in the big situation. So maybe we don't pay as much attention to him where we don't put them in with like that elisa agreeing chapman trio back into the bullpen. But whenever he pitches he delivers. I trust lucas. Lewke a lot. Yeah the name we didn't. That's why we didn't. I don't know how nobody knew who he was either until he was in spring training. Know he the tommy tommy moe you did know like hobbs new movie. Was it well. When i brought him up in spring training like this guy look fucking got still following his career for the past six no. It's actually he didn't pitch in six years. He was out of baseball for six years. And right now. He's got a two three six zero his less sixteen third innings get. Somebody is zero zero runts bills one forty batting average one eighty three on base. One fifty eight slugging. He's he's been fucking good And no bed or obviously and you did mentioned. They haven't been using him like the highest leverage situations. They don't use them also in like nine. Nothing games like usually somewhere in the middle there but that was big time And he started the year. A little slow i think is i like five appearances. He given up runs in every single one of them and then since then nothing so hats off to him. He was big on tuesday. And yeah. that's what i was going to say. Also i know you mentioned him. But i'm going to give credit to louise sesa. Louisa might just be a pretty good reliever. I know i feel like shit on him through the years. But if you look back now twenty nineteen four point one all right not great but not terrible. Three point three two. We are a last year sub three. Ira so far this year. It's eight two after two credit words do lewis essays. He's pretty good. Always sabih like he would always be inconsistent. We he knew he has good stuff in his changeups. Good news just like an this year is is shown everything being consistent which is nice. He's still not like in the top five of guys. Like i want to see out there but i'm not gonna totally turn the tv off. Successes pitch i think. That's that's a problem and he probably deserves better than that. But i still have. Ptsd from so. I keep my distance when he comes in but yeah he was really good on tuesday. Looks like a pussy guy. He doesn't have an intimidating. Look on the mount lowe. He does it all he looks yet. He looks not confident and stuff. He's off the mouth. I feel like but credited. Era can't can't really complain about that also on tuesday. Could frazier made a nother. Incredible play in the outfield diving. Kelly knows how he caught that ball. So i believe i saw that. It actually was a probability of nine. I thought we're okay. That's what i thought you were talking about. And i was gonna say we really describing. That is amazing. Catch of it had a ninety five percent catch probability but he does clinton frazier in the outfield. Is like when you're a kid in your backyard and you're trying to make the diving catchers and trying to make web gems or like i'll leave secondly or something like hey dad really far over there so i can make a diving catch like. That's frazier in the outfield and credit to him. He does catch most of them. That is such a good your designate throat over there. So that wasn't hard enough. Clint frazier like that was too easy of a catholic. I wanna die for that one. That is how. Clint frazier plays the outfield. I want to say though. Did you think that was a ninety five percent catch that what. Maybe he just had the worst job ever. And that's probably why but it wasn't anywhere for a long time and it's not like he had to. He didn't have to dive wasn't like he had to dive to catch up a granted kind of dived in a weird way where he caught the ball so far to the left of him and his body was so right. It was such a weird. I still like when the guy makes contact. I forget exactly was it. Wendell might have been wendell. It was lefty and off the bat. You're like oh we're getting great. Then they pan the right field and you see that clinched so far away from the ball. Doors sprinting nowhere near the ball. You like oh base. It came over like they're just gonna take lead here. We won't score game over. And all when clint makes the catch i generally didn't think it was still in his glove clinton. You just mentioned that. But i that whole play. It was just very confusing in my small brain. I couldn't i couldn't process it's the life of me. And then yeah. And clint walks off to end on tuesday and yet how it fucking much-needed victory and cool celebration to at home. Play where he does like the jump on the jump shot which they were like calling for. Maybe it's a thing they're going to doing. Judge makes actually sneaky. Nice one handicapped with the helmet on people like notice that her cared for it but made a nice one catch and they went nuts. The sad part though right after the game are pal. Mike ford optioned to aaa. He went over three three strikes and the game is a one thirty three batting average. Talk last last podcast.

"Triple play. Where do you rank that as far as exciting plays in baseball like i feel like inside the park home. Run triple play those those two. Because they're so rare that are triple play. You don't even you don't see coming. It takes the same amount of time really as a double play. So there's not as much anticipation in it. There's not a build up for a triple play like you'd never thinking it before the before the before it happens. No joke about it. Like a triple play would be nice. Exactly you're saying jasser screwed just talking shit. Whatever it's not like. You actually think anything like that's going to happen. The ball has to be perfectly hit and it was it was perfectly it was hit the perfectly to rochelle so that he made that turn and then turn it second like you got to have some mustard on that ball to and and there was mustered on apple. I mean the the fact that They turned it beautiful. Stretch by voight. It was gorgeous. It's exciting when it happens. It's exciting ship because when you're seeing it you're not expecting everybody is fired up. I mean the the cheese grin on chapman. After that thing happened like probably the ba- i it looked like it was the best thing he's ever seen in his entire life. So yeah inside. The park home runs there but just like exciting place. I don't know man a guy. I scoring from first base on a on a double late game. Okay but because this is he gonna do it as you are. They sending him. They're sending and there's a plate the plate. Let me let me say plays at the plate up or no longer thing. Because you can't block the plate you could still. It's still thing because it's still exciting because it still. It can last exciting now. It's this guy over anymore. Having you can't pull a pete rose anymore and that's what made it extra exciting. I'd say an extra exciting. I'd say home home robberies like really good homerun robberies where the guys like in the air well over the fence robs a homerun. Maybe if it's late in the game and it's an preserves the lead inside the parkers We're talking about when the yankees fan tries to block the the robbed run. Because that's what happened today. Wait what what are you talking. Frazier went off for the ball. It was at the age it was a it was a it made it a four three game. I think that homerun did and yankee fan in the front row caught the ball. He was behind the fence. But like right there. Frazier was the. They showed the replied. The angle was great but he had a chance at it. It was other going to glance off the end of his glove. Flop out of it or he was gonna catch. It was close enough where he was. It looked like he had a chance full disclosure. The game was on the ipad. And what i was doing at that point in the game was we were trying to see. Harrison would go in the pool. He didn't there you go. Clint frazier got got Got robbed robbing home run. I thought you meant there was a ball. Gio hit the game that went off the very top of the wall and a fan almost reached over and grabbed. It pulled the jeffrey mayor. But things a pissed missile. I when taken it's domino. This was this was all high. Fly ball it. Would you know it's an out in many places and it scraped just on top of the wall and dude caught. He wasn't looking. He wasn't paying attention. He was trying to catch the ball eye on the ball. Not nothing nothing. No awareness of what's happening with the plano awareness of frazier is yankee fan. Catches definitely impedes the catch as a yankee fan close to the wall and the other teams heading. You gotta know that first of all right field especially there's a monster playing right field and if there's not there's okay. It's clint frazier this time. But still those are catchable balls. You gotta you gotta let the guy play. I almost feel they do have these signs. Do not interfere with the ball in play but instead of those signs to explain like no the situation back the fuck up when the other team is headed exactly possible that rightfielder king catch it. That's a good thing for your team. You don think about. Who's who's at bat. Okay if if the yankees are about. This is what you do. It's like it's like one of those flow charts if this is literally you're supposed to react to the play. Not think while the balls in the air to make sure you're mentally prepared for what's going to happen so that you don't have that extra that extra time to think about it. Well the fans are less apart of that the on field action than ever because of the nets all around the foul territory. So you right field. There's no excuse there no but you can't have a A bar what's his name bartman. Yeah it was not. You can't yeah. I think so bartman. Yeah that doesn't sound right cubs thousand three.

"Good since that first week but people like him. He's a fan favourite already. He's like this year's. I don't even know he's like he's the supervisor of of two thousand twenty one spring training he can play a couple infield spots. Dj lem who obviously can play the infield spot so if he needs to shift over to third base he can do that but i just think this gio thing is very interesting with how they can construct a roster. I agree i think it changes it. Changes the game. Look we we had this as a side note with them talking about geo potentially playing short and you know one of the reasons why i think it was brought up earlier. You know even before spring training. I don't think it was before spring training. We we find it but you know he's played over there when When the shift is on as well so he's got experienced citing over there. He's just a glove in the in the first place And i think they're confident with him. You know not really giving up too much the range. Maybe but we're talking to labor. Range is not that much. I was gonna say does geo have that much worse range at shortstop thing than gleyber. Well no i think that your range also will get knocked a little bit from instincts not playing not getting the rep stop playing the position as much like getting a good read off the off the bat from short to third short. He's just he doesn't have the reps there to have that that that same instinct as a any other shortstop. I think that's just played there more more often. And more times i mean. Do you think the yankees will actually do this. Though i do. I think they will do it. I i think they're looking for an option. Where if there's a ball hit. I dunno seven feet one way seven feet the other way if the ball is hit and it's within range to get a glove on it. He he would be just fine making making a play and i think i don't doubt i don't doubt that i just i don't know if they i hope because tyler wade only does he play defense at shortstop. That's his role on the team if he makes the team but i don't know if they're ready to give that up yet i don't know if they they believe in them what they're testing enough yet to say. We don't need tyler. Wait on this roster. I'll believe it when i see it. Look i think you know. I've been i've made these The argument for other way for for a long time just as far as the way that he can fit under this roster and it's very much a role player position. That just doesn't come into play that often early in the season. I think you know a tyler wade for the the other things that the defense the the running basis. The flexibility on that side could come into play later in the season as of bench guy. That has a very specific role within a game. That's what he is. He's the last guy in the bench that gives you some flexibility on defense. Gives you some flexibility on the base path. That's what he is. maybe he can lay down. Who knows my point is. He's not an everyday player. He doesn't need to be an everyday player during the regular season. If he can be. I don't know how many how many options he has left trying to look at it but he's got to be coming up on them to be honest. Who you're talking about tyler wade. He's a yeah he's got a beginning. I don't know but that's a factor and if he's in the minor leagues getting everyday reps at shortstop like that's probably a good thing honestly for the new york yankees as a whole for when he needs to come up if he if he ends up coming up late in the season helping in a smaller capacity like that would be a positive thing for him. I think they're gonna have four four bench spots twenty six man. Roster thirteen pitchers thirteen bench players in less. They're carrying an extra bench spot to start the season. I just don't see that happening. But so there's eight. Guys i think are in contention for those four spots higgins. He's a lot he's the backup catcher so i wanna talk about that gardner. He's also a lock. I mean he's gonna make make the roster. You see played right field i did. That's awesome. Great give them flexibility. Is i get get off. Clint frazier's nuts. So that means you have to pick two of these next six players that are going to make the roster jay bruce dark teachers tyler wade mytalk man. Mike ford astrada. Yeah i already. I can tell you who they are going to be okay. Tell me they're going to be jay. Bruce and mike talk man interesting. so they're go. I i did not expect you to say tuchman So i think they want the depth that there's there's only the there is no backup infielder. Other than jay bruce and he can only play first base. Now that there's guys that can shift around but But that that doesn't work because because you have you have dj gleyber geo. Starting if one of those guys goes down how do you fill out the infield. If you need to plug an infielder you. He goes down within the game or like. Yeah yeah within the game you. Dj who can play literally every position. I know that the glaring issue gleyber torres needs to come out of the game in the fifth inning. What happens or shallow goes to shallow goes to shortstop goes a third bruce. Here's the first who.
