"I know he's got a ton of rbi. Baseball forty nine only has more jazz. Jazz gets on base marseille. Like it's an interesting lineup. it's a top elise. yeah i mean. I'm winning labor now somehow made no. You're verse. I made no. I'm not gonna win. No move part of i. I mean all my hair half my hitters got hurt and only one the atlanta outfielder who we will not name is out for a while but i place none of them. I have spent no money. I one hundred five dollars for a car coming from the al. I know steve's listening. I've made any moves. I'm paid that much attention. Because i didn't think i had a great team but i made no pig literally. No pitching moves until this week with johnny gray one on the injured list and i just moved tyler anderson but yeah i mean i there. I know he's not gonna runs to seventy five twenty eight and one hundred one hundred on segler trying to think of the other guy now all right so i'm not a hard time just thinking of who could have gotten to that rbi level. I don't pay attention that much. Dr behind like i'm guessing guy was thirty six. Rbi that's i mean it can't be vlad his babba to be four hundred three forty four. There's only two outfielders even on the list and this is one of them. Well when i was doing when i was writing up the twin story. Today i'm going to name a guy and you're gonna thank god cheated but did when i was looking up to the numbers say miguel to know has a fly ball rate of like fifty five percent which i thought had to be leading the league. But it's not the guy. Lean league and fly ball. Percentages tampa is awesome meadows. And i'm thinking that's a guy with a lot of power who's betting to ten metres. Rbi's rbi to sixty five. Mr karma pulls out a frigging nowhere. That's the other guy genius. Reason is found out is because an hour ago. When i was looking bad twins i saw my ball rate so i would never have guessed. He got forty five. Rb is the bab yeah. Wasn't that a stadium. Meadows does not hitting like two fifty. Now he's sitting to thirty three so that's obviously a depressed babbitt there because he's better than that but yeah i knew medicine the rbi. Then when i saw the fly ball rate in the fees. It's just you can't have a fly ball rate of fifty five percent for six months like bettas can't keep doing the so no can't so no maybe can keep doing this right this but he's going to one ninety if he does that. That's just the path for these types so all hasn't meadows the lefty hitting scenario. Now no all no. There's no way that the ryan ship problem. If you don't put up. One hundred mph top-shelf exit velocity. You can't sustain it. You can't i agree i mean i. That's that's a low batting average. Though with a tawny strikeouts. Austin meadows has to be among the leaders. Strikeouts not leading right now by the way otani is not otani is right up. There is a ton of strikeouts as a hitter. I mean i don't think he's leading the league. I think he's in the top. Might be the. Let me look it up so i wa. Your buyers is five. Strikeouts match happens not going to be much fun in stem next year was one i was thinking of but i didn't think he had the rbi eater. No i brave. I know he has the rbi. I don't know what his abbott is. I was thinking of the baltimore guy. Came back from the cancer His name oh tradesman seeming seaney has the rbi because you know because the guy mohan's gets. Yeah so i knew mansi about. I don't know what his bab you assume. Mancini hits about two seventy anyway. We're running out of time on today's show because lots of things are beeping on computers.

"Turnaround because the ground ball rate is in the league the hard contact rate. Suppressing that is not a lead. As a matter of fact he's not been all that special about it. So i lean towards it. Being fluky are you. Do you think this continues or anything close to do you think that he's gonna blow up. No i don't think he's gonna blow up. I think he kind of is what he is we if we expected. Say a three fifty era with a one twenty whip. That's what he should do the rest of the season So he's a guy where you look at his trend you look at his recent trend and not his first month. I but how do you know when a picture is doing so poorly. We know to keep luis castillo. So many people have given up on patrick corbett. Who's a to start guy this week. How do you know and to give up on. A pitcher has won six consecutive starts now. I'm glad kept him around. You know yeah i mean hendrix is a little different though. I mean we think much more than we do have a player like davies mean so eventually are a three fifty three fit for davies. Since may i that's serviceable it's perfectly serviceable. And that's the right way. I would evaluate him going forward. Is that if he does. Regress to the mean here. That's the mean. That's not that bad. If it's a player like a steel as elite stuff great changeup. We talk about the balance between that in this. You've got to keep him around just based on the pure skills. If he was losing two miles per hour fastball. I'd be more apt to let them go. Those are the things i'm trying to find. If something changed especially fastball. Velocity the spin rate just tanks. Then i'd be concerned if they're getting hit by bad teams than i'd be concerned. That's why you brought up earlier in the show. So what are you doing with alex wood. Who still has fantastic numbers for the season. But in his past who starts his throne a total of nine innings allowed. Eleven earned runs and struck out four. He was six or seven. Strike out guy every outing until last week where he got lit up now to start guy this week with nice numbers and you know it's a home start against arizona. They're awful on the road. They have one road win in the road like a month and but is is i. My league is trying to peddle alex wooden. Nobody's biting on that and nobody would because last week was so bad pun. Intended or unintended. No i didn't mean that. But like you know what i mean. It's like what a guy is over achieving. And then you wait like one or two starts too long to trade them away. It's too late already. Nobody wants them. I'm not a big alex. Would believer in. It's more because of the durability the recent what do you do about the numbers though there exist k. But i don't that's the point is i don't think you can assume that in this case that maybe those two outings showed that the fatigue could becoming a little bit into play here. I'm trying to so like record data. Who has a forearm strain last three outings. He had four strikeouts over three outings covering twelve. But he but he's dealing with injuries within those outings each of those times. So that explains a little bit of the downturn. And i'm very concerned about as a guy you husband etienne that points league i mentioned i am very concerned about michael pineda alex. What ninety nine ninety one. Point one with a fastball. Velocity to starts to go ninety one five. That's down a little bit from what he was before that. So is fatigue coming into play here not throwing the slider as much. He threw eight percent of the time. Low season low last outing it's to home starts as you mentioned. That's favorable because of the ballpark arizona. Good up then. He plays a really mean team at home that i just don't like very much after this weekend. I can't believe that horrible horrible team that you root for that. He has to face in start number two. I mean i know you're angry because you're yankees got swept in a two game or by the these bird. I wouldn't read too much into that. Phillies aren't good yankees. The story here is the yankees aren't good. I didn't realize i don't watch. I don't choose to watch yankees base by watts. Whatever's on wherever i feel like our pitching matchups i but digital may you man. That's not what you signed up for and we ripped labor tours every chance we get. We never ripped. Dj lemay you not we. I'm not riding that bus with you. What you need to because he homered off narrative which isn't terribly difficult but the fact is dealing may who is having a terrible season. And i looked at his numbers and didn't see any reasonably believe that's gonna turn around. He's taking walks scoring runs. But no power no speed to sixty one batting average slugging. You got your number one and three hundred slugging. Three fifty tristen. That's hard to. It's hard to be a good baseball team when you're the yankees and you've got problems in your rotation and then two of your top three hitters. Not judge stan are not slugging it all. Yeah lemay who spent a little bit unlucky. And as i suspected checking the statcast numbers live rates down. That's all that's killing. It is got squared up the ball a little bit better. I don't think that corrects overnight. However and i am concerned about it and just there's a team white funk on here i've watched i mean you know i've been watching for three or four weeks of an and just drive me crazy every night. The team is just a mess. And then they lose luis severino so the rotation. That's fallen apart now over the past week the guy. We're going to get back in a month. Now i now. He's in the same boat. As guys like noah syndergaard. I mean. I wouldn't even bother russ stashing severino on any standard would not now. He's out at least six more weeks. And then he's got a up. I i so he has been has Cubs mets tonight. Jake arrieta you'd want once in a while. He pitches well. But you don't want them. David pearson terrible a lot of interesting alec minoa is third. Starts at fenway. Do nothing to jackson co art has to do with alec minoa facing boston. Bad match up out me. Gutierrez ariza the reds. This week to starts i one at milwaukee you adding vladimir gutierrez so the seconds that san diego. That's not a great matchup either. This is simple volume chasing in leagues. Were there's a heavyweight on just giving you innings and strikeouts. okay. I'll sign up. But i'm not excited for you know not yet. I watched his outing last week. And i was like okay but you are chasing volume. If you're exactly yeah. I don't i don't wanna do.

"It makes sixteen career combo meals and over that stretch only four players have more and i would have guessed to with them right away. Trout installing morte The other two. I would not have guessed. Maybe you've looked. Maybe haven't but you know i have i would have. I probably would have gotten. I probably would have gotten vr and not galych all right interesting that would have been. Maybe my third or fourth guests. You mookie betts last. I looked. I know this is going to anger people but movie versus alex for do go. You know it's a pretty close race last. i looked. Nobody wants to talk about that. How boston wasn't right now. Is on the way to play offs. Okay and they had a trade mukhi and obviously you know nobody wanted them to but look as an eight twenty. Seven home runs stick seals. Alex were do is a nice player. And last i looked better numbers. He has a seven ninety eight. Oh pm so it down. Now but eight home runs and four steals. Nobody would say that for do goes a better player in real life or in fantasy but they're pretty comparable statistically right now yeah offensively. Yeah by the way. The bets defensive. Metrics aren't as platinum glove worthy as they had been during the prime of his career. The defense i always come to with. Mookie betts is how a lot of his forgettable or down or disappointing. Or whatever you wanna call nitpick with him are a little bad luck influenced and i wonder whether that's going on to a certain degree the season. Yeah i mean. I don't expect them to fifty three all season long. You could make the case that this is the right time to trade. For mookie betts. Because he's not yet to fifty three all season long two homers in his last four games. The other numbers that i when i look at him now a little disappointing this season but babbitt a little bit depressed. But he's not striking out at all. Walking's fine contact fine. I look i look at his numbers lake. This is a guy who's going to have a better second half that what he's having right now. So you know you know. Maybe he shouldn't have been a top three overall. Pick but you know things are going to get better so go. Get a yeah. The the the worst part of adam has just the expected batting average is a career. Low two sixty four. But i mean he's got a lot of to seventies on that resume and as you said the the plate discipline metro metrics are just popping of the page. You know what i'd probably do. A deep dive into the quality of the pitch. Is he seeing in the first place. other combo meal since our past show brand allow of tampa bay nice player not having a nice season but again a good time to buy low on him as well not a base dealer. But he's got power saturday. Adam duvall dylan more. And the great vlad guerrero junior who decided to steal base the same day. He homered dillmore off the injured list. I believe that day Yeah sunday as nick tweeted to us. It's a combo meal with bobi shit. And then you're now for as the foot and has bad knees but he decided to steal a base in a blowout win on sunday over the twins. Were shut very good player. Top ten player for the season. Power speed scores a lot of runs. Vlad knocking him in every day alvarez nother fantastic player So anything to say about any of these guys yeah. I'm trying to see quickly. If i can find the slowest guys to get a combo meal again like we had in that previous show. The first thing i thought of with your yeah is he's he's he's not way down on the list. He's actually below average but not not in the danger zone. I don't view him. He's not wholesale. In when a cut or wilson romo c. n. like he he can run if he wants to it. Just yeah such bad knees. You don't want him to be running member for this show. It was dominic smithian right. He's never have another comedy on two days later. Tried to get who tried to get another combo which to me is more than half the battle you know you say half the battle. I is more than half to even attempt another stolen base when you are not fast like dominic smith Yes all right moving on. Let's talk about some of the pitching performances. Here's i try to navigate a new laptop which is really weird. Like everything's in a different place. I gotta tell ya sakhon. A whole routine. Computers have their own. New routine is a couple of weeks ago. yeah. I don't think people are aware. Zach davis has been doing past like month or so. Nobody wants them because he doesn't strike people out and truth be told i was trying to release them in a league where we can't just released prayers and i made moves to get to that point and now i don't want to release them outings. Aren't you glad. I never gave you that endorsement. Because you are baiting me on show after show and i was not willing to give you the. Don't them endorsement. Well i mean the past. Twelve and two thirds innings three hits which is luck because he's not missing a ton of bats but he did miss a miss six on sunday night baseball. He's walking to every game but he's allowed one home run in his last like ten starts so he's keeping the ball down and they let him go six innings or he let himself go by by being efficient and score. The game also matters but now as erase a a one and you say oh well it was like eight a couple of weeks ago. So that's how you how you fixing. Era lewis casino. You can't even think about getting rid of him. And as a matter of fact. Since may i love what i do that i type in the date and then it reverts to the beginning of the player's career area for a second ago. Great here we go since may first he has got an a one eighty six era. He's got a one eighteen whip. Of course they only has twenty nine strikeouts in those nine starts but yeah i mean that's bad. Obviously but like mirror matters whip matter exactly. That's and i mean. I think we probably would've all noticed what david was doing to correct a season if he had more than three wins in the nine starts. But if you're in also the other thing he's not quite a greg into the innings pitched qualification for.

I understand that in the lakers mythology. Kobe bryant ranks higher than shack. Kobe play this entire career. With the lakers shacks started somewhere else and finished somewhere else.

"Now it's time to perform and uncomfortable procedure on wilpon in. What's the word what's first mookie. Betts is catching throw was blanked. My word is cake as in piece of cake. If you watch. Mookie betts in right field. He goes near the foul line. Not really close to it. But he's in that direction he catches the ball he pirouettes. He throws a one hop laser to the plate and he gets an out. And you ask yourself. Who sends a runner. Against mookie betts. Because from now on nobody sends a runner against mookie betts and if you hear the announces talk about it. They talk about how casual. It appears the way. Mookie betts makes his great play again as if he does it all the time. As if it's a piece of cake. I will say this mike with mookie. Betts and bellinger in the outfield for the dodgers. That's going to cut down on a lot of runs. They're both gold glove guys bellenger as one moves. He's got five started out as an infielder. He never played the outfield until he got. The aaa will tony. My work could have been ironic because he did this against the pirates and what it reminds the two of us who are old enough to remember of his roberto clemente the great roberto clementi in right field who often would catch a ball belt higher or lower and then he would as you said he would go to a spin aroma. And you go. Oh my god but that's not going to be my word. My word is going to be elegant because there are a lot of outfielders in major league baseball great outfits and minors. But tony didn't make it look like this. I mean it's like mookie could be playing in a tuxedo. He is so elegant when he makes the cats like lower than his knee and just spins effortlessly. very the junior griffey's a category by himself but but bets is in that that next slightly lower category absolutely elegant. We'll best is playing right field. So it's it's a different right field. Chrissy had style all zone. Nobody's griffin next the match up tonight between fernando tatis junior and jacob degrom should be. It should be thrilling. Okay because the graham is the best pitcher in baseball and for my money. Todd teas shohei ohtani. Are the two most watchable stardom driven hitters in baseball. So this is the kind of thing that if you if you see it. You're sort of at the edge of your seat. I mean not at the moment is second in the league in steals and second in homers despite having missed eighteen games the last guy to lead the league in steals and homers was. Hello nineteen thirty. Two chuck klein okay and and the year. That degrom is having totally insane. He's five in two zero zero. Six two i that is the lowest through nine starts since they started keeping. Er as you gotta go back to my high school class of nineteen thirteen. So for me. I want to watch this. And it is said of the by teammates. He does not use goop. Tony attitudinal matchup in that. Each guy has got to be sitting there when he walks out there. Looking at that guy had out at home plate or look at that guy at the mount. Saying you think you're good you might be good but you can't touch me. Can't touch this as somebody used to say and tony yes. The graham is graded what he does and he probably thinks he's just going to go out there and have three four pitches max to tattoos and send them back to the dugout and tattoos. Teases thinking i'll take your deep because he is the most exciting player to watch. I would've thought that distinction belonged to bo jackson to lead the league in homers and stolen bases in. The same boat has great didn't play a whole season because he was going back to football something. But that's an incredible thing and it's been that many years ago but i plan on watching it a little bit of this too. I thought it was willie. Mays willie mays didn't do it in the same season.

And and we just kept joking. Like it's so hard. If only been, if you were CEO, this would be so much easier here and then the kind of just we stopped making the joke and just said, you know, let's really make it a

Austria to allow Christmas skiing but many restrictions stay
"Know breaking ranks with other european nations. Austria will allow skiing to start on december the twenty fourth but will limit the capacity of ski lifts and keep restaurants and hotels closed. This isn't ideal for business. But it is something and south authorities believe. It's completely safe. Because alexi cari olov explores how the is getting ready for the new ski season trends. Don't normally disobey orders but try and take away one of their favorite hobbies and see what happens. What are they doing. Slopes are a close. Yeah but Many of those people don't care just yup. Just that's me playing the mountain range with febreeze. Doni general manager of a popular ski resort located around one hundred kilometers south of china. Because there's so many people like one forty dollars per day just people trying to get into major. So that's the problem on the day. Visiting the sky is a dazzling blue with fluffy white clouds skidding overhead any other winter. That'd be hundreds maybe thousands more people in the piece the to trespassers. We've just seen but this year is different now. Trae will open. It slopes for christmas although even then it won't be business usual the conditions on the which we are about to open them are kind of craz- because there's not going to be any hotels open. They're not going to be in regular operation of restaurant. So i mean you have to imagine that people even if they just come here for a day. They're going to spend the whole day on the mountain. They're not going to have the possibility to get indoors to to warm up. They may be will find a solution how they're going to be able to to get some food that takeaway style but they have to eat that food outside. We're not in a city. Where in montana area temperatures are going to be quite different whether you you face in again for example. So that's kind of crazy because cover them on. The one hand says okay you. You're going to be able to open. But the conditions impose of province for us turning organization. Ms boost does need san viet. We infer young. Upper is sorted and crazy anoint.

France and italy have all forbidden skiing holidays fearing that would push up infections but australia has refused to toe the line. However it will require people coming from abroad to go into quarantine and with hotels closed. This effectively leaves austrians as the only eligible customers along. That's still welcome news for greece. It is for the upcoming holidays. We're going to lose People coming from abroad so that's thirty percent of accustom is also one day customers. They're coming from hungary from check republicans so we are going to lose them because it's not going to be easy to get in into australian other australia again so we're going to lose them but we expect to gain some customers from those types of skiers who usually would have gone to skiers in the western part of austria which they cannot do now because it would be too far for for one day trip up. The slope brings explains heltzel. Get to work on the situation. We're going to face when it comes to take away operation of of the restaurants on the mountain because people. No that's not our restaurants but it's a it's a it's one of the bigger ones the mountain. Well you get the slopes you get the chairlift like with the bottom station in mountain station you get lots of people Not too much. Space to people consumed are the food the food they bought outside. So that's one of the challenges we're facing with the current government regulations because people are not going to be allowed to use the space within fifty meters from the restaurant Which is quite a problem if you if you imagine having three to four hundred people standing around and they should not stand around at the slope because obviously there are skiers coming down so that's quite complicated and that's why i ask myself what the government thought creating those regulations

That's all you need to see. Your movie where everybody's screaming around the movie. Yeah. I'll say this for for for the benefit of Fans I. do think that the Knicks deal is scared you get defense back to New York like Van Gundy like Pat Riley tibbs had problems. He wears players out he plays too many minutes whatever you whatever the case may be but I always liked him, I loved him as Defensive Guy in Boston and I think that's probably one of the smarter moves. The Knicks have made me be the first one in a while. So shout still the Knicks they're. In line with that, what about basketball coming back in a few days you ready for that? Are you GonNa Watch or you made your point there? Basketball come back August. I only one thing to do. Listen Celtics are underdogs against the. Milwaukee Bucks there and Disneyworld I think our Celtics win that first game and they have a strong chance of already said on previous pod making the finals this year. So don't sleep on us in a shortened season like this I. Think we're young enough and we are defensive-minded wing defense perimeter defense enough to make it to the finals. I really believe that when the League shutdown we were only a few days away from the playoffs. Yeah. We're a of games out. Yeah. So one of the. Pick whoever the hell was ready to go to the in place to stop the playoffs because they didn't want to throw everybody that wasn't in the eight in their conference out, they wanted to give him some kind of chance and I think the rules are a little bit weird and confusing. But ultimately, we'll be back in playoff mode and everybody will start run in the weirdest thing is for the teams that. are playing at all anymore like the warriors whatever that are just GonNa go to the lottery but you know I'm so looking forward to it and just like I watch baseball I was only weirded out for a couple of seconds and I was so grateful that my fantasies team the computer screen, the TV screen all up and running a Jerry Remy.

"Maybe that will change as baseball loses money and viewers and fans or whatever But you know I think both contracts slightly outrageous at first glance shore but I'm always a player verse owner Guy So I don't begrudge either one of them I think it'll hurt them. Home contract will hurt the chiefs down the line, not these first couple of years but down the line franchise wise to try to get other players than mookie contract will hurt the dodgers down the line. So. You're saying that. They play more games baseball to get paid more football. Money changes everything. Well, what I would say is that mahomes contract contractors a different animal football. That's the first time we're that much guaranteed money in that long was given out. Now it's always quarterbacks leading the way in football for the most part but baseball this has been going on a while. Remember that Iran deal back in the day obviously the Mike Trout for twenty six contract So it's not really new for baseball and what would you have been okay with the red sox giving Mookie for ten years or twelve years what's a number that you would've been comfortable with? Him The keys Toledo lanes. Let's have you don't know candle pan you don't know bowling. And I WANNA give him all the proceeds from section three, twelve to three fifteen. From all the concessions. Obviously, we're going to agree to disagree here. I would have been fine with three, twenty, ten, ten years that would have been totally controversy that contrary in all honesty do not believe that Mogi best was going to re-sign I honestly do not believe he was going to it just. People want to move people WANNA move teams. Nobody is a home Ernie more I mean we know that no one's a homer anymore they go to. That's how. Does it make you Matt Rob? Does it make you mad at the player? Let me ask you that America wants to know. No, it makes me mad at the game. Yeah I think that's probably that's probably fair I think that we should just make the official theme song for Professional Sports Cream. Cash rules everything about me shutouts the taste clan. Mom I am T. V.. Run and Shit. But I would I would say like I think it's all going to be like basketball pretty soon, basketball everybody moves around and we just have to accept it. Now I am old but not quite old enough to say like I don't root for the player over the team I'll always refer the team. I I don't begrudge these guys either and I really hate the owners and have basically. Sir Good for. The dodgers, I guess. I'll root for him unless he plays the red sox just like Tom Tampa Bay. Football don't you? I. Do I have something else that we could talk about? I. Thought this was somewhat interesting. We won't spend a ton of time on it but Jamal Adams one of the better safeties in the game we're obviously mccourty fans. He got traded from the jets who are going nowhere fast as we talked about on a previous pod to the seahawks which is a nice on the surface trade. But when you look at what they gave up, they gave up two first rounders and a third round or they get only a fourth-rounder back and a player that I don't even know. I just find that to be you know good for the good for the West. Good for the SEAHAWKS But what are the? What are the jets doing? Is this a rebuild or we're GONNA see Sam darnold leaving that team what's going on in New York what a mess? I think the owner is trying to sign the team with a bunch of players of that a past, their prime and most some of them could be dead. Adding.

So I'll respond to just a few things there I will say that the cardboard cutout thing they don't focus on it quite a bit. So yeah, it's weird. When actually put the camera on him, it's kind of weird having old Tom, Karen Earl, Dennis Eckersley up in the green monster seats. It's a little weird but I'll allow it. Some I've watched a few different teams. I watch a lot of baseball on the last couple of days. So some stadiums get the sound closer to not weird and some of them have really weird. So I think they're going to work out the kinks little bit there but honestly on TV it's not that weird man I'm not even the you know I'm okay with it I, it's not as jarring as I thought it would be I'm now I haven't seen an extra inning game yet I'm sure that's GonNa Freak. Me Out but in terms of the new bullpen rules in terms of the The no crowd there. And The D. H. in both leagues I'm sort of okay with it. I'm just grateful it's back. Honestly. I heard there was a game that was one with a grand slam in extra innings. So to think did the rudder on second base actually Despite everything, baseball tried to do to make a dramatic it turns out still away. When you have a crappy bullpen goes man. So my question is if that runners started on second base, which was part of the Grand Slam. Yeah. All K-. Cow As an earned run for the pitcher, it's a good question and I don't think baseball has an answer for you. So we're just GONNA have to just roll with it man..
