"mike sirocco" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Feel that my brain is mush at this point. So I'm going to absolutely need you to carry me as we go through this. Give me someone on the braves that you're especially happy for. And it can be from Alex or Brian snick gore or Freddie Freeman, whatever you weigh you want to go. Oh my gosh. I mean, everybody, but, you know, what about wrong Washington? Getting so close when he was with the rangers, managing them. And I know this isn't a win as manager, but just being part of this team. And from all the reporting, everything we've seen, it really feels like he was a lot of the heart and soul of this team. I mean, overall, it's Freddie Freeman for sure, but it really felt like Brian snicker is outstanding, but that Ron Washington really, really carried this team in a lot of ways. Those videos of him doing infield practice with Ozzy albies beforehand everything, it's hard not to be so turtle for a guy like that. Yeah, you're right. I thought about that in the middle of the series about that, how close they got in 2011 before David freeze ripped his heart out with that amazing performance he had. So you're a 100% right. That's a great call. Let's play the numbers game. Number three. Number three is 7. So each of the last 7 World Series not played in a neutral site. So we're skipping 2020 for this. Have been clinched on the road. That is the most consecutive World Series clinched at a certain type of venue in postseason history. So either most consecutive clinch on the road or lynched at home. And it's just incredible. I mean, you obviously were there, and I, you know, got the opportunity to be at the World Series for a couple of years back a few years ago. And, you know, it would be great to see a home team clinch. I mean, it doesn't matter and obviously fans, fans travel, but hopefully we do get a home team clinch next year. Number two. Number two is 25 and two. So I really think this was a story of the World Series and really ended up deciding it home runs. Teams to out Homer their opponents were 25 into this postseason. And the braves hit 11 home runs in the World Series. The Astros hit just two. So that plus 9 home run differential for the braves was tied for the largest by any team in a World Series with the 1950s, 6 Yankees, they hit 12 the Dodgers hit three and it sounds simple to say, hey, hit more home runs than your opponent. But teams did not go undefeated in the regular season when they hit home runs. They wanted about a 700 clip. So it really seems that that comes to the utmost importance when you get to October. Number one. Number one is one. So the braves became the first team in postseason history to have an LCS MVP and a World Series MVP in the same year who were both acquired med season. Of course, any Rosario in the NLCS, Jorge solar in the World Series. And I just think that's incredible. That's the story of their season. That's all. All of the players that he acquired replacing around junior junior and keeping that team afloat. So solaris only the third World Series MVP to be acquired midseason Steve Pearce in 2018 with the Red Sox and Don Clinton in 1969 with the mets or the other two World Series MVPs. But this is the first time we've seen two of those in the same postseason. And that's the braves. That's going to be the story of the 2021 braves. Sarah, I think the braves have a chance to repeat this next year. And I wouldn't necessarily make them the favorites. But they have such a great young core and you think about the progression of Austin Riley. You think about Ronald Acuna junior coming back? Do you think about Ozzy albies, you think about max freed? I do believe they're going to re sign Freddie Freeman. Mike sirocco potentially could be back, Kyle Wright looks like he took a step forward. Maybe he's gonna be part of the staff next year. If you told me that the braves were back in the playoffs, is the national league east champions again next year. That would not be shocked to me. What about you? Absolutely. I mean, I think that this was a team that people would have picked entering this season because of all the players you just listed because we were expecting them to have mics for opa. We're expecting them to have raw in the canyon junior throughout the year. And we saw in those first few months through July, just how incredible raw and canoe junior is, you know, Freddie Freeman was talking last night about how he sees him as the best player in the national league. And he certainly was leading that conversation before he got hurt. It's really hard to pick against a team that has him and also so many other players. So I think that would be a little bit different. I wouldn't expect them to win 88 games. And when they again, I would expect them to dominate the way that people thought they might this year. 95 plus wins and potentially win it again. All right, Sarah. Thanks for doing this. Thanks for all your work throughout the World Series. Of course, thank you so much for having me. Save travel to home and thank you for everything. Bleacher.

Now i'd love to see the rockies. Be there but i am in a football state. A football driven state baseball. I'd rather go watch baseball game than football game. I really would is weird. That sounds i love. Rock tober was one of the my best childhood memories and not really childhood but still one of my best memories was rock tober and watching that game last night I it's hard to think you know what could've been. i know. the braves went on to win. Six two two was you heard. Joe bucks call On fox last. Night charlie morton. If he doesn't go out with a broken leg he was dealing he was dealing. He took a line. Drive off the shin Broke his leg and then pitched for like another inning and a half before finally it was too much for him to to deal with but the braves are hot right now they are hot and it just a reminder a reminder of what a good front office can do for a team. This team was forty nine. And fifty one at the all star break. They whole losing record at the all-star break what another plan for the world series and they're up one over the astros without their star player without ronal kuna junior. I think freddie still the star but he's like one a and one. B ronald is is stupid. Ronald out They they lost another pitcher too. And i'm totally blanking on his name right now. He tore his acl Excuse me not as acl his achilles. So what are they. Do at the all star break. What do they do right. Before the trade deadline they go get jorges solaire. Jorges layer in his leadoff at bat to start the world series goes yard. I bat batter of the world series. Cranks one left. What else do they do. They go get eighty. Rosario resigned batting four seventy six in the play offs and he gonna do out at second base last night. Those are two dudes that they just brought in d. rehabilitated. Happy having pitchers yes is it. Mike saroka yeah mike. Sirocco scirocco was dealing in the first half of the year. He tears his achilles. And they guys like charlie morton they get god. Wouldn't that be great if that was happening in colorado if the rockies were even in the play offs. I love watching the fall classic. I love watching play baseball. But it makes you feel all what could have been what could be with the colorado rockies and yet they still don't do it and they still continuously continuously lose But the braves and astros back at it tonight.

"mike sirocco" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"So I share the frustration. I do hope though that we can at least say, this is a really good ball club. Yes, and they were a legitimate 100 win team legitimately the best team in the American League, legitimately. I think there are moments you can point to in that series where the ownership and transigen towards spending money. I think especially in game four where you have Shane mcclanahan on three days rest. As a rookie at the end of the longest season of his life, being asked to get out in a believe at the time a scoreless game against the most difficult part of this Red Sox order on the road. That's definitely a scenario where you feel like maybe if you had an extra starter if you had just paid for one extra starter if you kept Charlie Morton if you hadn't traded rich hill if you've just gone out and gotten like a pick pick a starter from last off season who would have been available on a cheap one to two year contract and would have been at least league average. I can't think of anyone to top my head. But that was probably a moment where you're like, okay, this is where this team's cheapness really comes back to bite them. But otherwise like all the stuff that happened in this series that kind of didn't go the rays way was just very in stuff. It was that fluke play. It was Manny Margo being called out on that stolen base because he came off the bag by an inch. It was, you know, it was a thousand other things you can point to that that made the difference in this series that had nothing to do with the quality of the race because they're a super, super good team. They're terrifying to face. They're exhausting. It felt like wonder Franklin Randy rosarina wrote about every inning and they weren't, but there are players in that lineup where nearly dam is good anyway. Right. And so that's like, yes, legitimate, 5 game series teaches you nothing about the actual goodness of that team. But it does really feel like one of those things where if you want to make sure that those variant moments hurt you less, it probably helps have a roster built up around you that can weather those moments a little better because you have guys I mean, this is the thing with last year. Like you just said, basically the 2020 World Series was the rays against the rays, but with superstars. Great. So I feel a lot for the raise. And I especially feel for them now too, because it's very clear this franchise is actually going to pursue this idiotic Montreal plan. And I don't know. What do you do when your team's eliminated and the first thing you hear about franchise wise? Well, sorry guys. It was a really fun season. Tune in next year when we're going to try to spend half our time when we're going to spend all our time trying to convince you that actually, Canada is where we want to be playing, not this dump of a stadium next to a highway. Yeah, it's a rough way to wake up the day after you've done a limited for sure. And so my condolences to Tampa, there are very good, very fun team. I make jokes about them online all the time because it's very easy and because I can never resist easy shots. But they are so much fun to watch when they got especially when they're just clicking. When you just see all the pieces fall into place and you're like, oh, this is basically a perfectly built baseball team from top to bottom. That's terrifying to think about. Yeah. Well, we leave that series behind right now as we record. We are in the bottom of the first of Houston, White Sox, Carlos rodon, through 99 in the prior running. So, you know, that is at least a good sign for his early going here. So we will wait the conclusion of that series to find out who the Red Sox are playing. So we'll wait to preview it until we know what their opponent looks like. But let's briefly touch on the NL here, the brewers, stand on the brink of elimination, as do the Dodgers, which is surprising, perhaps. And I guess, I will ask which of those two outcomes is the most surprising to you, John? Probably Dodgers and not so much because I expect. I mean, I picked them to win that series. No, I'm sorry. I picked the Giants when that series. So I don't know, I guess I don't really be surprised. But I think it's less about the surprise that the Dodgers are losing and more about the brewers being down to one and having scored a grand total of two runs in three games. Yeah, that scans. Yeah. That everything that's happened with the brewers so far has played exactly out as you would expect it to. They've gotten two really good pitching performance at three really, the Freddie Peralta was Freddie Peralta was shorter obviously than Corbin burns and Brandon woodruffs, but they've got an excellent pitching and no offense to speak of, which was pretty much the case all year. I mean, pulling from Kevin Goldstein's game three recap a team that finished, I believe, top 5 in the NL and runs between the bottom in both OPS and WRC plus. So yeah. Peripherally not a good team. And as KG mentioned, it took a Willy Adams hot streak the likes of which he had never experienced. Plus, guys like Luis Arias and rowdy television kind of catching fire for a bit for them to get even that far. Yeah. And that's something you look at that lineup going into that series, and you ask yourself, who exactly here is the guy you can rely on to do damage. Like where is the chunk of the lineup that a pitcher is scared to face? I know that's like this sounds like an extremely sports talk radio way of referencing it. But it really is just an average offense at best that doesn't really have consistent power threats. A lot of these guys are more contact oriented hitters like Colton Wong or Louis Zürich or Adam ezer and especially with Christian Yelich continuing to have disappeared sometime around the end of 2019 and never having come back. Yeah, the fact that the brewers are where they are against a team in Atlanta that doesn't pitch as well as they do, but still pitches pretty well and has a much better offense to boot. Yeah, that doesn't surprise me that they are where they are and that they are in this position because it really I think it really was going to take either burns Woodruff and Peralta are all Madison Bumgarner together, 2014 Madison Bumgarner, or they need one to three of those guys in that lineup to go just wild over the course of 5 games. They need a Kiki Hernandez type performance, because that lineup just is not consistent enough to put together offensive rallies on the regular. They're way too many dead spots in that lineup. There are way too many guys who are not capable of doing really anything other than ripping a single between first and second, which, hey, you're on base, but you know, and I think we've seen this, it's really hard to build rallies in the postseason. Yeah. Unless you are a hyper either you're unless you're the Astros and you just have a lineup that goes 7 deep somehow, or you're a hyper contact oriented team that's really good at executing fundamental and fundamentals and small ball, which the brewers are, but that I think obviously works better against bad teams, certainly than it does against a braves team that is genuinely legitimately good. And I think the other surprise if there is a surprise to me is that Atlanta is as good as it is, despite the fact that the braves lost Ronald Acuna and their outfield was a mess and they don't have Mike sirocco and their goal pen is a mess..

"Tickets and the next one is our first store called loss of the season and we took the over on texas at sixty seven in off the currently forty seven games so of the remaining twenty seven they would need to win twenty one. That's not going to happen too big. We don't dwell on texas. They've been absolutely horrific rubin in the national league. Atlanta was our first pickier in the analyst under on the tool ninety one and a half twenty seven games left in the it would need to win. Twenty one of them to cash that. So that's That's an absolute stolen called. That's that's a win. Seventy one in sixty four and as we see over two or three weeks. it's the division. Nobody wants to win. The mets have kept me alive over this weekend. Nelly sweeping the so four four from four currently with the game to go off tonight. Yeah for the The fifth easiest schedule remaining by their tough opponents are also three against the giants for against the padres and then it's pretty much in their division three phillies three against the mets Atlanta team again dealing with a lot of injuries right. We talked about how this was good. Mike sirocco back but they didn't get him They lost obviously ronald kunia. Junior for the season So you know. They did a great job at the trade deadline by we keep on saying that nobody wants to win this division and they're not winning game so i think this is going to be a slam dunk win for us for sure. Absolutely i think the next one is our is our other slam. Dunk quinn as well enough in the. Nl central was saint louis under eighty six and a half games. They are sixty nine hundred. Sixty five meeting with twenty games remain in that need to win eighteen. The need to go eight eight then gonna do that enough. I think this is a job as well. Yeah third heart schedule remaining For the saint. Louis cardinals four against the. So between the brewers sorry the brewers and the dodgers they have twelve games against those teams in eight of them are against the The brewers so You know a lot of division games left. They saw the reds. The easiest opponents left are are the cubs in the cubs are still there. There are still finding ways the win against some of these These teams so Yeah we're third hardest remaining schedule..

"That's why the the mets have to go do something and again i don't know if kris bryant even available to know how much it's going to take get him but they need kris bryant or someone of that ilk in the middle of that order and then they have to get to graham healthy then they have to get the door back then. They can make a run at a nationally good in october. Steve cohen is not going to sit around and let the state founder and not make claps. We've been talking reason weeks. How they're focused to this. Point has been on a starting pitcher. And i don't know exactly who they're locked in on but let's face it. A cow gibson of the rangers might make some sense. Jose burritos twins decided to sell players under control beyond this year. I was told over the weekend. That's not their attitude right now but i'll double down on what you said about the other teams in division. We've already seen the braves. And how alex baba's did their general managers can handle this year's death by now obviously is well aware in the loss ronald kuni junior and not having marcella zone of the rest of the year. Losing mike sirocco the rest of the year. He understands how devastating those injuries are. But he also knows that they're going to have travis star no back They're going to have noah back in that will probably be those guys back in their line of sometime in the first couple of weeks of august. And i think he feels like he hasn't obligation to his players to run out of the ground ball team. We always talk about effort. Level among players to hit around ball shortstop. You should run hard. I think the same is true for general managers. And that's what we saw. Alex do over the last four days. Go out and make a deal for jock. peter said. Go out and make a deal for stephen boat now. Are those guys difference making players. Probably not it'd probably gonna make a difference. The braves are probably to flaw in the head. Too many injuries. They're gonna try. And you and i you mench about the phillies eating their owner. John middleton who is desperate to win you know it's been so long that a decades phillies of sniff dot over a decade do. Does anybody think the john middleton is gonna stand down and dave dombrowski first-year offbeat general manager of the phillies are a baseball operations This is someone who someday like you is gonna make speech in cooperstown. He's won championships before anybody think he's not going to make a big deal. He's excellent at trade deadline deals. And you know. Mike rizzo the general manager the nationals. If he has a sniff they could be in the race in at some point. They'll get couch quarterback. They've got a veterans team. Guys like max scherzer. Anybody think those three teams are just gonna stand down and wait for the mets to get their injured guys back. No you're right. Buster the the three general managers chasing the mets are three of the most aggressive guys out there and they are not going to stop short when they have a chance to do this so I'm a big believer in st teams on the field. But the gm's are going to get something done here. Because it's dave dombrowski stymie year mike rizzo's time of year and alexander the time of year. So this'll be fascinating to watch right. Let's just touch on the rest of the trade market teams that potentially could be aggressive or not aggressive. I saw the red sox over the weekend that to meet him. The that's an interesting team to watch leading trade deadline. Because when i look at their situation in the players they have in their lineup. chris sale coming back. And let me tell you the stuff. I was hearing yesterday about chris sale. They are so excited about what he might bring to the table in terms of how well he's throwing to me. That's a team. That absolutely should be aggressive. The questions whether or not owner. John henry is gonna step in and say. Hey let's go call the cubs and let's talk about craig kimbrel deal. Let's talk about a deal you know. Maybe it's a two for an you. Go and get anthony rizzo to play first base and they have to get somebody to play first base buster you saw last night. You reported christian royal play first base last night because they need somebody else to help. Bobby dall back down there because he has so much trouble especially against right in hitters. They have to go get a left handed hitter at least a platoon first base. This is a really good offensive team. But they've lost six out of eight and haven't hit with chased balls out of the strike zone and pitching which has been so much better has not been good. These last eight games and i. I can't imagine the red sox just sitting around doing nothing now. They have to get better if they're going to win this division. They have to get better if they're going to hang on and make the plows and buster. I've seen this a million times and so of you inside the clubhouse when the players recognized the gm is trying to make us better. They're going after people. It changes the look of the clubhouse and the feel of the clubhouse when they sit there and say look. Our ownership doesn't even think we could win. We're not gonna do anything to help our team. That's a big let down. So i don't think the red sox are gonna let their team stumbled for another two weeks. They're going to go do something at the deadline..

"Best one to three punching baseball with brennan corbin burns and friday peralta. You've got josh devin williams in the bullpen. But this is a team. That's heavily reliant. On those five guys if any of them get hurt. That's a big problem for milwaukee. So i'm not entirely sure what i'm going to do with this. With my brewers fifty. Five to one ticket i could play the reds at fifty five to one i could just take the reds to win the central division. Obviously if you take one of these teams from a world series standpoint pretty much instant auto hedge now. The brewers do have the pitching to beat anybody. They do. Have that the reds probably. Don't they'd have to out hit somebody but again. If you're sitting there were fifty five. One going into the world series. That's a pretty good price point. Be at so trying to decide. What if anything. I want to do to hedge. This brewers ticket because these two teams play each other coming on the all star break and the reds are at home in that series. I think i may have to do something with it. And i'm not exactly sure what that is as of yet. But i still have a little bit of time to decide. Couple of leans here as well for a second half futures ticket. The mets the missed. The playoffs is plus two sixty five. Now you third order. Win percentage for the national league east. The mets are actually the last place team through a win percentage and alternate standings metric. That looks at you know. A lot of expected run differential and all of that but also factors and strength of schedule the nationals. Actually the top team in the national league east by third owner win percentage by base runs. They should be three games better than they are. So kind of a correlation here of nationals plus twelve hundred to win the east and mets to miss the playoffs and plus two sixty five. If one of those things happens. I think the other thing happens. So the mets missed the playoffs. I do think that it's the nationals. Now that would be in the best position to win that division with the braves not having ronald kunia junior. So there's some correlation here it's not a full on parlay or anything like that. But i do think that there is some correlation than if you think the mets missed the playoffs. The nationals would be the team that should pick up the pace. They're so nationals. At twelve to one to win the east and mets to miss the playoffs plus to sixty five a couple of things. I'm looking at here again. Shop around for the best prices on all of those things but those are a couple of the options that i have here before. Play begins in the second half. Let's take a look at some second half adjusted win. Totals and i do feel stronger about these than i do. Dabbling in the futures market at this point in time but i did want to throw it a lot of different possibilities for you here today on the show the secondhand adjusted win total numbers. I've seen these at draft kings. I'm not sure how many other sports books do have them posted. I'm sure there are some in the global markets for those that don't have access to the us books but here are a few that i'm looking at for a variety of different reasons and the first one is the seattle mariners eighty and a half. Now i do believe. I saw the market eighty two and a half on this one eighty three and a half even a win. These i open and the market has this down. I know it was at least eighty. Two and a half could have been higher than that. The market has bet. This went down. And you can understand why. I've talked a lot about this mariners team. I talked about him a lot on. Monday's show their plus eight in factory and win. Lost their plus seven in base runs their plus. I think nine eight or nine in third order win percentage. This team has gotten very lucky. Throughout the course of the season the mariners are forty eight and forty three maybe minus fifty run differential on the season. They are sixth in weighted on base average of men in swerve position but thirtieth in weighted on base average with the bases empty so they are a big cluster team. That should regress to the mean. They're nineteen and eight in one run games. That should regress to the mean. Its aunt their bullpen. Is that good or anything like that. So mariners under eighty and a half and this is a tricky one because they are forty eight and forty three. But i think this is a team that really does fall off in a pretty significant way here in the second half. I know. Julio rodriguez is coming. I know jared kalinic is up already. I know. logan gilbert is up already but this is a team. That shouldn't be as good as it is a lot of stats pointing towards negative progression for seattle. So i'm looking at the under eighty and a half with their season they're adjusted. Excuse me season win total next. Here's atlanta braves under eighty two and a half and this one isn't really statistical or anything like that. This is more about personnel. Where router kunia junior out for the rest of the year with that tornadoes. C. freddie freeman charlie. Morton drew smiley. Chris martin all impending free agents. Now i don't know necessarily a freeman gets moved but smiley condole if somebody wants to take on the five million or so. He's still owed. Charlie morton. Could i didn't charlie morton definitely goes. I think some contender very much. Want charlie morton. Maybe a reunion with the tampa bay. Rays could be an order. I think that's a possibility. Those two teams actually play each other coming out the all star break by the way chris martin a good bullpen peace. There will definitely be a team that wants to add him. I didn't atlanta's best interest to reshuffle the deck. A little bit for twenty twenty to try to move these. Two starting pitchers find out. What you've got in all of your minor league starters. Mike sirocco has already been shut down. marcelo zun still out with all of his legal issues. I think the braves are just. They're not in a particularly good spot here and they've been relatively healthy throughout the first half of the season and still haven't played particularly well now. Their best player is out. Maybe their second or third best starter had a setback. I under team here for the second half. They've been a good second half team. So maybe that's kinda keeping this number a little bit high. But i think that the braves will run into some difficulties here and also seeing that correlation if the mets missed the playoffs nationals to win the east i do the nationals over seventy eight and a half the way it looks right now they may only play five teams with a winning record going into the all star break here so they have a very light schedule in the second half base runs has them with positive run differential third or win percentage has them in i. They've got twelve left with miami they play colorado for six games. They're gonna play the pirates. They play this week division. So nationals over seventy eight and a half kind of a correlation there with braves under eighty two and a half. And as i said hello yet nationals. Twelve one to win the national league. Easter.

"Why is it important for buford wesleyan. It's an overall athletic competition at the high school level. It's a urine points based on how your teams doing the state playoffs of the schools. In the state fight for supremacy in each classification and buford was six i winter so first year and six which is even more impressive.

One in class. I private they wednesday titles in both cross countries and boys soccer. So you'd hundred points each for state championships ninety points for making the semifinals. That sort of thing so you can't just win this thing based on state championships though you really have to have well-balanced athletic programs and dual and multiple sports In a wide variety sports and also in was angle sports and that shows great balance and these athletic programs they exceed on both sides with the boys and girls sides and also kudos to jc.
