Dodgers vs. Padres is the new high-stakes rivalry MLB needed

"Exciting team the hottest team in baseball right now at the Padres going up against the best team in baseball right now, the Dodgers and they're playing for the division, and it's really chippy. And we're coming down to the last 10 games of a wild wild year. That's why I shouldn't have to say so. I may put it another way. Like if you've ever been to a music festival, then you know how there are multiple bands to play at the same time, but on different stages, right? So the headliners get the realestate. The artists who were printed up in a smaller fought on the flyer our summer off to the side playing with smaller crowd, But if you've ever been to a music festival, you know that the smaller bands off to the side sometimes put on the better show. Sometimes you want to be off to the side and you want to see what's going on over there. Last night, I could make the argument the Dodgers and Padres put on a better show than the NFL doubleheader. When they were playing back to back on the main stage. If you have not been paying attention, then maybe you did not know last night was in fact. An unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. The unstoppable force Now are the red hot Slam Diego Padres. They welcomed the immovable object. The seven time defending NL West Champ L. A Dodgers to Petco Park. San Diego, Riding an MLB best seven game heater, the Dodgers holding onto a 2.5 game lead in the division with their ace, Clayton Kershaw on the bump. Kirsch has been nothing short of vintage this year. Maybe the villa is down a bit, but it doesn't matter because this dude has been spinning Uncle Chuck. Slinging a slide piece to the tune of a sub to E. R. A five wins and a career best whip, and for five innings last night, he mowed right through the analyst, second best lineup. Padres. Righty D. Nelson lament matched him the entire way, though, halfway through that game, we were watching an old school pitchersduel. Their courage was barely getting the better off. And then things went from somewhat respectful and cordial to extremely chippy with a single swing in the bottom of the sixth.

MLB shuts down Marlins and Phillies, revises schedule for NL East, AL East teams amid COVID-19 outbreak

"Yesterday. Four additional members of the marlins tested positive that brings the total to seventeen members of their traveling party so that then lead to well, the nationals had been scheduled to play a three game series against the marlins starting Friday. In Miami. A majority of the Washington players voted against that yesterday, the decision on whether Games are played. Played rests with Major League Baseball, however, not with the nationals, but the league then did agree with the nats and postponed all of Miami's games through Sunday. So they're now not scheduled to play basically for the rest of the week that includes games originally scheduled for today and tomorrow in Baltimore against the Orioles, who will now instead host the Yankees for two game series starting tonight. Remember the Yankees had two games canceled or postponed that we're supposed to be in Philadelphia over the last couple of days. So Jeff here they are major league baseball for perfectly understandable reasons rearranging their schedule on the fly. What more can you tell us? Greenie. A schedule is a schedule, and till it is not and that's the scenario that Major League baseball is facing right now with the Miami Marlins. The idea that they are even going to complete sixty games simply is not possible at this point there points in the schedule where they can make up that three-game series against the nationals possibly, but the four games that they're going to be missing against. The Baltimore? Orioles. Orioles, they don't have enough off days to do that. Let alone to string series together like this. So Major League Baseball's looking scenario in which at least one team or two. If you include, the Orioles are going to be playing fewer than sixty games. Now, it helps that the marlins are probably going to be at the bottom of the National League east the Orioles are going to be at the bottom of. Of, the American League East, that these aren't the teams that are going to be in playoff contention that said this may not be the only time. We see this happen during this season. So at least there is a precedent being set early

US eyes building nuclear power plants for the Moon and Mars

"US wants to build nuclear power plants that will work on the moon and Mars and on Friday put out a request for ideas from the private sector on how to do that. The US Department of Energy put out the former requests to build what it calls a vision surface power system that could allow humans to live for long periods in harsh space environments, the Idaho National Laboratory a Nuclear Research Facility in eastern Idaho. The Energy Department and NASA will evaluate the ideas for developing the reactor. The lab's been leading the way in the US on advanced reactors, some of them micro reactors and others that can operate without water for cooling water cooled. Nuclear reactors are the vast majority of reactors on earth. Small nuclear reactors can provide the power capability necessary for space exploration missions of interest to the federal government. The Energy Department wrote in the notice published Friday the Energy Department NASA and Battelle Energy, Alliance, the US contractor that manages the Idaho National Laboratory plan to hold a government industry webcast technical meeting in August, concerning expectations for the program. The plan has two phases. The first is developing a reactor design. The second is building a test reactor, a second reactor to be sent to the moon and developing a flight system in lander that can transport the reactor to the moon. The goal is to have a reactor flight system and. Ready to go by the end of twenty six, the reactor must be able to generate an uninterrupted electricity output of at least ten kilowatts, the average US residential home, according to the US, Energy Information Administration us about eleven thousand kilowatt hours per year. The Energy Department said it would likely take multiple linked reactors to meet. The power needs on the moon or March. In addition to reactor can't way more than seventy seven hundred pounds be able to operate in space, operate mostly autonomously and run for at least ten years. The Energy Department said. The reactor is intended to support exploration in the south polar region of the moon. The agency said a specific region on the Martian surface for exploration hasn't yet been identified. Edwin Lyman the director of Nuclear Power Safety at the Union of concerned scientists, a nonprofit said his organization is concerned. The parameters of the design and timeline make the most likely reactors those that use highly enriched uranium which can be made into weapons. Nations have generally been attempting to reduce the amount of enriched uranium being produced for that reason, this may drive or start an international space race to build and deploy new types of reactors, requiring highly enriched uranium. Earlier this week. The United Arab Emirates launched an orbiter to Mars, and China launched an orbiter lander and rover. The US has already landed rovers on the Red Planet and is planning to send another next week. Officials say eating nuclear reactor on the moon would be a first step to building a modified version to operate in the different conditions found on Mars Idaho national. Laboratory has a central role in emphasizing the United States global leadership in nuclear innovation with the anticipated demonstration of advanced reactors on the NL L.

"This is Neil two point. Oh you know it is a lot of times. The same kind of quote The same kind of public image from him. But I think with Ben Some of the background. Some of the flavoring that he's gone through is different than it. But the O.`Neil the pirates job is just first time as a big GM and he was coming from the you know the Cleveland Indians slash. Montreal Catholic was the the Expos as well for a while then. has has been with the Toronto Blue Jays. He's been obviously with the Boston. Red sox where he helped put together a team that won a world championship. And that's kind of experience that was kind of lacking with the previous group not to say that they didn't know how to win. It's just they didn't. I don't think that reflexively go make the kind of thing would have made the kind of decisions and is GonNa Make. It comes things just a little bit of a different view on things. He has a different kind of relationship with a lot of the other general managers in club officials. That he's going to have to deal with and sometimes it's little things like that can really make a bigger difference and especially for club like the pirates that place it's so close to the margins in so many ways you know it's more than just you know pinching every nickel and dime it's getting the most out of every minor league signing the get the draft pick every international signing There's still room for error. That a guy like Ben who who has stood broader scope of experience worldview in baseball. Some of those differences may turn out to be bigger things down the line. Now Tyler Glass now used to pitch for the pirates. He's now with a raise. He made some really interesting comments recently. About how he felt like that. The pirates were behind which is fascinating. Because you know this and I know this at eight or ten years ago. They reviewed his perhaps. The most progressive organization is at a feeling shared within the pirates organization. It is I think to a degree that right before the team kind of took off civil in two thousand thirteen fourteen and fifteen there was a sense that the pirates were ahead of the curve that they were doing things you know for the ray series. The pitching coaches the pitcher whisperer. They were doing things with shifts much more frequently and much earlier than a lot of big league clubs but I think there was any situation in a work environment. These can kind of set away and there can be like a little sense of complacency makes the kind of settles in after a while. A sense of this is the way we've always done. It always is just means the past. You know five or six years and in a game like baseball has changed so much so rapidly over the past half decade you. We can't afford to do that and I think you know. Let's say it's right or wrong? But I think some of the vision of the past management group discovered shortsighted got comfortable with their own ways and stopped really looking beyond what they had done before. That's where I think there's a sense now. I mean we can just see that little things like the there are cameras and there was a you know everywhere every time anybody pinch In the past there would just be a one or two front office. People Watching Guy. Pitch now he really used. The pitcher evaluated from every angle to minute fraction of evidence. As to what? He's doing just little things like that weren't there before that and they're being made more open and accessible to the players than the past. Maybe that information wasn't shared that there was a judging beforehand of this is going to be helpful. This is not then. We're going to talk about or stuff way now. It's maybe more so on the players incumbent upon them to make those judgments do what's GonNa Be Right. Ninety seconds left three questions for you. GimMe the name of a young player. Who spent most of the last year in the minor leagues are all blacks during the Minor Leagues? Who could make an impact in the big leagues? This year. Brian Hayes Third Baseman You know former high draft pick pretty much consensus top one or two prospect in this organization. Fantastic love work The offense is okay. They expect more from him more power. They expect more gap power. And that's the big question now. If you can translate it'd be complying with any of them and they translate to the big league level but the globe work already as big league ready. It's been he's been ready for the major leagues to play at Third Base for the past year to who were the names of the most marketable veterans presumably. There'll be looking to flip. Some of those guys during the season can only come into the closer Has has a big arm. Has that closer mentality that you love to see And I I think you know he's GonNa be he's GonNa be a free agent after this season. There's no inclination from the Front Office to try to extend him with a team. That's kind of a little bit. Maybe the last piece that you need to go get is. Is that an elite level closer so I think restarted sees a guy that gets traded by giant flight. Thirty one if they could try to take Chris Archer would probably love to do that. I think they would love to sever their ties with that deal. Admit it was a bad deal for the club and move on. They need archer to get out of the gate fast and then try to move him again in July again. Give me a number for a guesstimate of wins. This year. Seventy five go back and forth a mental see. This is a is a sixty nine when club and I don't see it quite five hundred yet either Especially second half of the season after they traded some guys if different all the different sorting disclosable need to get back on. So let let me go as a as a high end of seventy five. All Right Rob. Thanks for doing this. Hey No prompt us. During timing pickup gold.

"Of a camp that than it was with. Gabe Kappler Look Girardi you know through already. Spent ten years in New York and Gerardi Joe. Torry are the only managers to do ten years in a row with the Yankees since the sixties You do that. You come with a little bit of Gravitas you have a certain amount of respect command. Would you walk in a room? If you've got ten years as Yankee manager on your resume and I think that Giradi brings a lot of that. He brings a lot of sort of Respect to the position. And you know I think. He's running very traditional camp. He's run a very disciplined camp But you know. I think that there's a little bit more of a A traditional mindset. You know. I was loved Brian. Price it here as well new pitching coach and he brings a little bit more of a traditional approach to that role as well You're hearing less and less about you know elevating south balls and Kind of a one-size-fits-all approach to pitching a little bit more about we got to keep the ball down. We gotta get our pictures to pitch to their strengths. As opposed to what we identify the league wide approach or a League wide strength and so I think between price Girardi. You're seeing a little bit more of A. I go back to that word. Kind of traditional Approach to To camp what's Year to a Bryce Harper. Like so far more normal as well you know. I mean look Today's March fourth. And if this were a year ago you'd have been at camp for a total of about three days. You know so I talked a little bit about how it was a much more normal off season. It's much more routine spring training for him as well That he's been able to come in and Feel like he's not you know hitting the ground running as much as he was last year so look I think he's going to benefit from that. I think I think he's going to benefit from having. Dd gregorious in the lineup. And other left handed bat who seems to respect A little bit. It won't just be Bryce from the left side. You know you look at what he did. The second half of last year and he really carried the phillies and a lot of ways. Put up numbers that were More in line with MVP bryce Harper of forty fifty and And you know while it's probably you know the phillies would love to have two halves from Bryce Harper. Like they had in the second half last year. I do think that they feel a little bit more. Like that. Might be a little bit closer to the player that they get for the balance of the season because he'll be comfortable and he'll be there for a full year and he's not going to have to deal with some of the things he dealt with having company can't late last year so it's like the get off to a better start that he got off to last year and if he could be anything close to the player he was the second half You know he's got the ability to be one of the best players in the league when they traded for. Jt Rail Muto. I assumed that they'd work out a long term deal. That hasn't happened. What's the status of the talks with their all star Catcher? So this is maybe the biggest story I think in phillies campus. Spring is real Yuko and not so much the arbitration case that he lost in the hearings A few weeks ago but more extension talks and we'll be able to work out deal with him before the start of the season Those talks didn't really get going until after the hearing was over so The sides agreed that they were going to deal with the arbitration hearing first and then get into it I don't know how far down the road they are It's only been about a week Since he got back from Arizona got the results of that year. It'd be closer to ten days so they're a little further down the road that they were ten days ago but I think they still have a way to go No when talking to Just bury represents you know until they were very unhappy with the arbitration process not so much with the phillies but more of the system. They felt like he was being unfairly. Compared with strictly catchers and they feel like for a guy who plays you know catcher who plays one hundred forty games a year the way real you feel. Does he should be compared with condition players at other positions as well In the arbitration hearing they wanted to compare to Rendell I five years in the big leagues. And all. I'll tell you at first blush. I was like what are you kidding? Me Eat don't is a different level offensive player but five years into his career. Numbers look very similar to what real like? I think an extension talks the name. I keep hearing about as Paul Goldschmidt. A year ago. This time he was going to enter his walk year and he agreed to to a five hundred. Thirty billion dollar extension with the cardinals. That's the sort of a baseline. I think that the real Mutoko camp wants to discuss. It would twenty six million dollars a year and it would flow blow past Joe. Hours a record of twenty three million for for a catcher and again. They don't really look at it like it should be captured a catcher. So you know it's unclear to me right now with the Phillies Will will see it their way. I think the phillies that Think that they have to go over that twenty. Three billion dollar more per year But I don't know that they feel like they need to go to golden state level yet so I think there's still a gap there. I think there's still a way to go Kind of just primes. Picking because the season starts three weeks and I know that they'd both sides. We're probably really like to get something done before the season before you go give me a quick number. Guesstimate on the number of wins for the two thousand twenty phillies while they want anyone games last year and lost their top seven or eight relievers to injuries throughout the year. And Jake Arrieta for most of the for for the most of the second half so I really go over eighty one but I'm gonNA stop at about eighty four eighty five. I think that they're still at least one. Starting pitcher short of being a true playoff contender. It play in a really really tough division with the braves and nationals and mets. So I'M GONNA to put them into the mid eighties. Eighty four eighty five. There's upside there I think that that there's room to get to the high eighties but everything has to break their way. So I call it. Eighty four eighty five wins and we'll see where they go from there. Yeah I'm right there with you. All Right Scott. Thank you all right. Thanks rich really covers the nationals. For the athletic and Brit. Look it's become the holy grail. Everyone's been searching for in baseball. How do you go back to back because no team has been able to do that? Since Ninety eight to two thousand Yankees I have the nationals made any accommodations for what we all referred to as the hangover effect. Yeah they've made come even spring. They had guys buster Who pitched obviously very deep into the Asian? They slow play those guys. They're very aware of the innings set of totaled up and then this winter interestingly enough at the winter meetings manager Davey Martinez a steady. He kept hearing. Hey Kid he turned around and it was Joe. Torry Jim Leyland Tony Larussa at a table in Las Vegas Dispelled some wisdom about championship clubs about what to expect that year. After so there has been some minor tweaks. They moved around the coaching staff Like I said some of the changes in spring training But overall they really really know recipe. If there was I think you wouldn't have this hangover effect The nationals are trying real hard to kind of forget about what happened last year. How well suited? Do you think they are to becoming the first team to do that in back to back years? I don't think they're set up to do this because I. I don't know first of all how you can replace. Anthony rundown a guy who's got over a six war. I think that they really got A lot of contributions from guys and a lot of luck. I don't think people realize how much luck goes into winning world series. I mean in Milwaukee That wildcard game with the brewers. At that fall doesn't go go between outfielders legs out there You know very easily could cost the wildcard game. So they rallied from every single potential. Elimination game Which is incredibly tough to do so. I think they're going to be a good team but I think so. Many thousand breaks wind their way. I have a tough time thinking that that happens again for me. The most pivotal player on their roster is Trey Turner. How about for you yeah? That's a good one. I thought you were going to say one. Soto because I think a lot of people either go with Soto or go you know church there. Strasbourg betrays her age. Now going to assume probably that number three spot He was playing through that broken finger. for most of last year couldn't close that handful as though he was hitting nine fingers He's huge. He's the only member of that Infield that returns. That's expected to be kind of a steady presen- he's really got to take a giant leap forward. Here you've gotta hit for more power. Hey He's got a very quickly become familiar with new guys at second base with new at third base He's absolutely the glue Very underrated I think is important to this team. The only guy who was intentionally walked by the Astros in two thousand nineteen was one. Soto who put on a show during the world series. Who's going to protect him in the lineup? At the great question. I don't think that they have that solution right now. We've talked about trade turner on how important he is If he ends up becoming guy he does have a career year if he does kind of break out a little bit more power wise maybe he provides a little protection but still. You just can't in my opinion. Fill that hole left by Anthony. Rangoon and I know they re signed a lot of their guys but a lot of those guys also are coming off of his actually monster years I mean. Can you thirty six year old. Howie Kendrick to continue to perform at the level that he did last year Came to expect starling Castro. Who's had kind of a brutal spring training so far Just take what. He does the second half of last year..

"He's like the closer and he's been an anchor a buoy of sorts for allow younger relievers or guys who more or less struggled last year. So before you go give me a guesstimate on a win. Total for the MARLINS knowing that they're playing a really difficult good vision beyond makes it a lot tougher. I expect improvement on. If everything works right I do the team. Probably hitting the seventy five win mark but I say anywhere between fifty five and seventy five would be would be realistic for this team this year. All right Jordan. Hey thanks for taking the time to do this. Talk with you. Oh likewise again. I appreciate the I appreciate invite is the sideline reporter for us. And why covering the mets and Mr Gelb described the mets spring training and the level of expectations. Buster the spring. So far has been very quiet kind of a a welcome going about your business type vibe with this team. I think that there was a a real sense at the end of last season that if the season would have just been one or two weeks longer this team would have gone to the playoffs and and had a chance to do something special. They played The Washington nationals really closely last year. They've played really well and I think watching the nationals. Go on and win. The World Series gave the group a sense that you know. We're not too far away. We can do this too so you know it's been a real kind of okay. We've got some unfinished business. Fields to camp so far in the expectations are as high as can be really. You know. It's it's certainly playoffs or bust. And I think there's a lot of people in that room that feel like this is a legitimate world series contender and and that's the way that they're approaching things going into the season. Take a guy in the roster who you view is really pivotal It's hard to go with anyone other than Wendy. As this point I think if you look at last season that bullpen is the sole reason why the mets didn't get to where they want to go to one eighty six games and they're both been for. The most part was an unmitigated disaster. For a large part of the season you know if Edwin de as is just average last season this team probably wins three four five more games and and you're talking about them as a legitimate playoff team so Edwin de as is the pivotal guy to me to a lesser extent. You can talk about any one of those guys at the back of the bullpen. That needs to have a balanced back year. Whether the whether it's familia whether it's down but Tana's who just needs to be healthy and do what he's done for his career. I think if you get one to two of those guys having averaged two very good seasons according to their career norms than this bullpen is really formidable and this team becomes that much more formidable but top of the list. Spf Wendy s and just a quick. Follow up what have you seen in this spring? What's your sense of how he's feeling about himself so he's been okay. Had A bit of a shaky first outing and actually after the game talked about how he had a little bit of anxiety. Going into the game. so I think he's putting a lot of pressure on himself. He's looked better since the stuff. Is there the stuff? Really? Was there most of last season. It was a lot of command issues and You know missing his spots so I think it's. It's still a wait and see. He says that he feels much better. He did some work with Pedro Martinez. This offseason they were in constant contact feels like mechanics just needed a little. Bit of tweaking So He seems relatively competent confident. The one thing I will say though buster if you were to say who are you most competent. We'll have a bounceback season especially out of those three guys. It's Jerry's familiar. I know that you've heard and you've probably seen just you know pictures and video of him. This guy looks like a completely different person. He lost thirty pounds It's not just a a thirty pounds of losing fat. He is he is cut now. He is really. You know we hear all the time. Oh this guy's in the best shape of his life but with Jerry's familiar he truly is in the best shape his life and what it's allowed him to do talking with talking with coach is really. Get the stride back. That he was missing last season he was. He was really unable to loosen up. A lot of his muscles is hips and he wasn't getting good extension on any of his pitches and so I think getting back to where he was a couple of years ago. In addition to changing grip a little bit on a splitter which is added a nice dip to the splitter and a little bit of velocity difference between that and it's fast ball He's very confident everybody. In spring you talked with the headers. That's the one guy that they point do as the guy that is is officially back. And so I'm more confident and Jerry's familiar at this point than I am Edwin Diaz but this is look better as of late. I thought you would take the as is a pivotal guy If you would pick Noah syndergaard that wouldn't have shocked me. What are we seeing him this year? Because obviously it'd be huge for them if he were to step up. Yeah he's he's number two for me if you ask about pivotal players and I think that's just because especially with the loss of Zack Wheeler. You know what you're going to get into Graham but after that it's really a question mark down the line and that's starting rotation and syndergaard has the stuff to really be that one a that second as we've seen it in the past we didn't see a last year he's looked really good so far in spring again talking to the hitters. That's someone else that they've pointed to as someone that has looked sharp early on in spring Again it's GonNa be a wait and see the one thing I will say about syndergaard and the same can be said for mass as well is. They seem to have really taken to Germany. Hafner as their pitching coach. And you know the one thing that that has happened and happened last year to is that the mets have really beefed up their analytics department. But I think last season they didn't get the buying from a guy like syndergaard. Necessarily a guy like masks because all of the information was confusing to them and this off season between Jeremy Hefner between some visits from from some of the analytics guys. They've really gotten syndergaard to understand what he needs to do. Based on the numbers and to make more digestible to him so syndergaard feels much better now about his four seam fastball. What he needed to do to get that right on the fastball. So it wasn't as straight as we've seen it at times last season and his four seam fastball. He says is going well. Then everything else is. Working off fit nicely. So he's really confident there's GonNa be a bounceback year for him and he looked apart so far in spring. That's for sure so it's Syndergaard can come back. Get back to anything that he was prior to last season It again makes this team. That much more formidable. Because you've got the gram and a vintage syndergaard. I don't know that you see a better one to across major league baseball one minute left two more questions for you. What are you seeing year to Pete Alonso? Well he's actually had a bit of a slow start this spring training. But it's tough to think that anything's GonNa really get this guy. He you know he's he's working to to get more comfortable and and to get to where he was once. You started the season last year but I think he's GonNa be just fine. I've never seen a guy and this is true story. I've never seen a guy in my now. Seven years covering team that has put in more work on a day in day out basis to get to where he wants to be. So I think he's GonNa be fine. You're GONNA hit fifty. Three home runs No I don't think that that's realistic to expect that back to back seasons but you know if they get another thirty five to forty home. Run season out of Alonzo Which is something. I think they can expect then. Then they're going to be really pleased with that. He's become one of the young leaders up this group. Future captain for this mets organization in my mind and before you go guesstimate on wins the two thousand twenty minutes. I'm going to go with eighty nine when they won. Eighty six games last year again like I said earlier with a bullpen. That was about as bad as could be for the first half of the season plus I think the bullpen is better this year. It has the potential to have you know a really really high ceiling and you know. Are they gonNA play the clip? They played in the second half where they were. Twenty Games over five hundred. Probably not but I think it's fair to think this team takes a step forward wins. You know three or four games and they WANNA see go and I don't think it's farfetched that they challenge for the NFL. He's yeah. I think I'M GONNA wind up being more aggressive than you and pick the mets to win the division. We'll see how it goes. All right Sir about that all right but covers the Philadelphia phillies for the Philadelphia Inquirer Scott. What's the state of the phillies rotation? Hey Plaster Yeah. At the top. Three are virtually set in stone Barring any injuries it's Air Nola Zack Wheeler and Jake Arrieta beyond that. There is a bit of a competition going on. I think Zach Kaplan is a fairly safe the number four spot although they haven't come right out and set it But he certainly has the inside track given that he had a pretty good season last year with a lull in the middle. He was pretty good at the beginning and pretty good at the end so I think he has the inside track there and then for number five. You know it's really a free competition right now. Between Vince. Alaska's Nick Profeta and Ranger Suarez. Who would be the only lefty in that rotation if you were to with the job so it's pretty much Still an open competition. There may be people Alaska's Has a little bit of an edge just given the way he's pitched this spring but Suarez has looked good as well and they're They're giving preventative chance to win. Back that job so Some holdovers there for the number five spot. That's really where things stand the most pivotal player on the roster for me might be Jake Arrieta. What about for you? Yeah I would agree with that. Look from a certainly from a pitch perspective I think that's the case I know how the Phillies feel about the back of their rotation. They feel like they have some some options. They're they're hopeful that Spencer Howard. Their top pitching prospect will be ready for the big leagues at some point this season and if they need a guy to be their fifth starter they need help back there they they think they can go find somebody during the year but they really need area lockdown number three spots because if he gets hurt or if he's ineffective then they need to go out and get more than just a number five starter at the trade deadline and that's going to be difficult for them to do without giving up either. Spencer Howard or Alex Fold Who are really they're taught to prospects that are farm system who they've really held on tight to and don't WanNa move at all so Yeah I would agree. You know look. Harrieta has not been healthy for the balance of his two seasons so far with the phillies when he When he has been healthy he's pitched okay but you know in eighteen has any problems down the stretch. It was really really bad for that August September and then last year for the majority of the year he pitched with a bone. Spur in his elbow was very good. So you know. They need him to be healthy and they need him too. General to be better So that the middle of their rotation is is somewhat stable. What's different under new manager? Joe Girardi I think the word I would describe his The word I would use to describe it as maybe it's a little bit more normal Maybe it's a little bit more traditional conventional.

"The braves of course National League East champion so mark going into this year. Who Do you think is the most pivotal player on the team? I think are GONNA be Swanson. We saw what you know. Some of its potential there at the beginning of last season. They got injured The decline offensively and defensively towards the end but he had a strong postseason You know I think if he can not only continue to provide a solid defensive shortstop but but provide enough that to lengthen this lineup beyond those those first four hitters. We all know what they're capable of. Then they may have that that Lineup death if they're going to need to compete and what will be a very tight race. You Watch the braves. Last year and you know that for a lot of the year a the biggest issue was their bullpen. What's the state of the bullpen? At the outset of this year I would say this is my twentieth season covering the braves. That's probably the best. The bullpen has been entering a seat. Do you think about where they've gone with. Luke checks You know being the closer most of last year now. He's a sixth inning. Guy Got Mark Melanson and and Will Smith They they they're continuing to designate milan-san as their clothes are I think will Smith will get twenty two save opportunities. We'll see how match ups You know set themselves up there in the late innings but you know depending on if there's some lefties but look being lefties and righties. Outta you got those two guys back there. It's going to be interesting to see what they do with with changing throughout the off season. I've wondered what they try to train. There's enough depth within this bullpen You know that that's an option. He's going to have a little bit better than he has. Your first few appearances that that may not be a big deal. But you know when you put those guys together. You Got Their Day In Luke Jackson did make strides lecture. He's not a closer but but now he's in the right role I think the interesting thing is what do you do with Sean Nukem? He he fits so well as a reliever last year. He's GonNa get a chance to to use of the starter maybe while called. Hamill's out that makes perfect sense but I think that you know he may be best utilized in that role As a reliever so he could factor into the mix baby beginning but You Know I. I think you're gonNA look at this. Bullpen as being you know six six maybe seven Two guys were you feel really good about What they're gonNA do when they enter again. You led me perfectly into my next question. Some health updates on a couple of guys Cole. Hamels Freddy Freeman. Well Pretty Freeman. That's fine you know. I think that Freddie came to camp. He was excited about how his oboe felt. I do think he just overworked itself. You know that that's you know I. I know some people might have been skeptical. That's just the way this We are in this world. You know how healthy is but I think he was just taking far too many slings and making far tomatoes during the first week. You can't just you know four months. Remove from surgery so these fine Astra Cole Hamels. We don't know you know I'm Brian. Snicker says it is far too early to even project when Cole will be clear. Start throwing so you know. I think when when they announced the coal is dealing with left shoulder information. You're thinking okay. He's GonNa miss all of the now. You know you get to this point. Three weeks left and campaign. He hasn't even was resumed throwing. He's going to have to start back to where he was January. I think you're looking mid May You know at best so when they do make these rotations this decisions with Kyle right and you know feeling has pitched well enough probably to get one of the two available spots But when you're you're making a decision with Sean Uka Mikhail Right. I think you have to think about the possibility of this is they could end up. You need about seven sparks maybe to compensate for for Hamels as absence. At least I do think it's You know we're going to be close to forty games of the season before before. Cold gets in there this spring. How is the third base competition playing out now? The Josh Donaldson moved onto the Minnesota twins. You know I- coming into camp. My I kept saying you know off their best with awesome rally at Third Base. But you can't allow spring training stats will you? So whatever Austin does down here at Spring Training That doesn't matter. Camargo should start the Season Third Baseman Sin Riley AAA give him a couple of weeks And then you know your hope is that not only does he provide power in the middle of your lineup but think tomatoes versatility strengthens your bench. right now the way. Riley looks you could. You're getting back to that. You know every year some guy continues to tease and say okay. He's fine he's ready. I I still think you need to to be careful. You know what he did at the end of last year But here here's the impressive thing. And you get moss for some run yesterday. But more importantly he's only struck out three times in nineteen at bats Here's a guy struck out. Forty percent of his plate appearances during the final three months last year He was swinging at every slider whether it was. You know anywhere near the plate Over the final few months I think he does have better Recognition than disciplined right. Now we know what kind of you know rob power he has. He's going to be the guy. Eventually the question is. Will they pull the trigger and give him the job at the beginning of the season? My guess right now March fourth no But at the same time In two weeks if he continues to do this it's going to make it even more difficult to send them to AAA but a look if you if you sent him to triple A. You you do it with the mindset. Just throw down there and do what you need to do for two weeks to make sure that you know prove to us. You are ready and then He gets in the middle of the lineup and once again like with Danby that helps lengthen everything beyond those first four hitters. One Minute left to get two questions for you one. What's in like watching Ronald Kunia? Junior mess with each other every day. That's a lot of fun I mean it's you know they're grown up now. They're older twenty three and twenty two now on but just You know they're always together. The these are. They're the best of friends you know that they make you laugh. They they keep you young and you know I'm you know that's that's that's all of us from a An outside perspective you know or you know from San or media perspective it makes you feel like They keep young. They do the same for their teammates. So it's Uh you know not only. Are they enjoying themselves? But they're making things much more Enjoyable within that clubhouse and a win total guesstimate on the braves. I'm guessing ninety two this. Is this the better team? And they had either the past two years But at the same time that divisions that much better I do think they win that division Ninety two with ninety two wins but Like I said the I think the phillies are going to be better. And you know we all know what the national be. We'll see what the mets can do but from top to bottom much division. So I I see the win. Total reduce you know. A reduction of wins but at the same time The result will be the same bill lender third straight division all right mark. Thanks for doing this all right. Thank you McPherson. Covers the Miami. Marlins for the Miami Herald what would represent progress for the Marlins in two thousand and twenty. Oh I would say first off more wins obviously going fifty seven and one five. Is You gotta go up from there? That can be seen a lot of the younger guys. Step Up. They have a lot of their prospect Edward Cabrera Monte Harrison Sanchez. Just name a few. Who are on the cusp of making it to the majors. If they can get this year and start showing some sort of progress. I feel like that'd be a win. In the MARLINS book how would you assess right now? The patients of the MARLINS ownership with what's gone on since they took over they've been patient but as their jere. Ceo Hall of Famer as he says he preaches patients but he had known they've gone through the first two years they've gone through dot com. This is the year that they they which is wants partners. They need to see progress here. That doesn't necessarily mean that. Used to be wild card contention or playoff contention but they have to take that step forward and by twenty twenty one. They need to start showing that they have a chance of being in the playoff from your perspective is communicating with fans. What do you think their response is going to be? Is the farm systems. Get better in some of those young players graduated into the big leagues. Hopefully the fans start seeing all of it. They've they've been as patient as ever. Obviously it's about longtime winning team. They understood the process that had to go on. They knew everything had to be torn. Down in order to be built backup. They've gone through the two years. See Don the younger guys on the cusp. They also see them Orleans making some findings the all season getting Corey Dickerson. Johnson be our basic idea to bring that buffer until younger guys already. And that's progress for them. They've seen the that's coming forward. They just WanNa see the production. Come on the field. Give me the name of a young players in the minors for a lot of last year. Who might have an impact in the big leagues? This year. This year I would have to go with Monte Harrison. He was one of the outfielders acquired in the Christian Yelich trade. He's more than likely within September. Call up last season. He didn't hurt his wrist. Blake and he's probably gonNA start in the minors for about a month. Maybe six weeks. Just get him some metro. Dax made sure he's ready to go and he could very well be a guy who's seeing right beal in right field. See a little bit and center. He's got some pop. He's got some speed. He has the makings of a baseball player. Who could make an impact in twenty twenty now? You mentioned the names of veterans. They added this spring. What it'd be seen in them in terms of making a difference in the clubhouse got clubhouse bear raining that veteran presence which is needed when you're clubhouse is primarily a lot younger guys the guys who are either getting to the majors for the first time or only been in for part of the season one season Corey dickerson has been preaching process.

"All Right Chris. Paddock is working through his innings limitations. How much of an impact will they have this year? I think we'll have a much bigger impact and that's saying a lot. Considering the type of year he had last season I think for the most part. The rains will be taken off. And he's just he's just one of those guys that's hungry to be to get better every day and because of that. I think he's going to have a really big year. It just depends Some of it depends on how the padres how much the rains are taken off. That they're completely taken off. He can have a huge. Aren't they finished thirty? Six Games the dodgers last year and yet Ron Fowler. Part of their ownership has been outspoken about expecting a big your progress What's going to be acceptable? I think in the eyes of ownership at the very least they have think they have to be in it to the end. I mean right in the thick of wildcard. 'cause there's an I think. The dodgers have pushed the gap a little bit wider with the deal for bet some price. I think they've widened the gap a little bit posited their best to keep it close by by getting guys like Tommy bands. That are gonNA do great additions. But I think in order for Ron. Our Peterson good Moving forward I think the parties will have to be in it to the very end of the season much like they were to the break of last year. They'll have to you have to complete a full season that with that in mind if they're in a race. How aggressive do you think there'll be before the trade deadline? I think it'd be very aggressive. I think unlike last year when there are two games out at the at the All star break and they could've made news I think they realize now time is of the essence and I think they also feel like they're in a in a closer spot than they were last year I think Aj probably will be very aggressive at the break. Should the project is being in? And lastly give me a guesstimate on wins for the twenty twenty padres. Let's say eighty five. I think have a chance to finish in both winter. Question is will eighty five. Be Enough to get a wildcard spot. I think that remains to be seen but I think eighty five number form this year. And they're certainly be in the conversation As we go down the stretch if that's what they wind up winning Anthony. Thanks for doing this. No problem buster. Anytime papers play by play man for the San Francisco giants. You know him well. And I've thought of you this winter I gotta say Kype when Madison Bumgarner signed with the Arizona diamondbacks. I thought man. Nobody's going to be more brokenhearted. Dec- bumgarner leave the giants? Then you are. How difficult will that be to watch him pitch this year? Buster look anytime we lose farmers as friends on teams? It's a bad thing. And he's about as tough in about as good a farmer rancher. You know whatever that you're GONNA run into. I'll tell you what it's going to be a lot different. You lose a really big voice in the club. Uh and when I say voice. I don't mean he spoke a lot Just the mere fact that his presence was there. And and you know you weren't gonNA say anything stupid. You weren't GonNa do anything stupid because you know he would be the one guy that would That would straighten things out. So there's GonNa be a huge void. Not only what you get when he gets on the mom but also what he offers in the club but I do think to buster that given what the giants are trying to do with a lot of the analytics you know. How would've bus Bumgarner? Would you bought into that so I think that you know? Maybe maybe it was time for him to go but But it still makes it very sad for all of us. Yeah and I think this year to a lot of what Giants fans will be watching for is to see what they get from. Buster Posey and Brandon. Crawford what do you expect there? Well I think what's happening Buster is I mean. Look good capitalist got. I don't know thirteen coaches and In half of those coaches they're younger than Crawford and Posey and you know Longoria said something the other day in spring training. He didn't say to me. I think he said it to Henry. Show and that you know we've got players that are that are declining only because of age and if you keep doing the same thing you probably going to continue to decline so. I think they're willing to try different things now to see if they can put a pause on that and And I think that's how they're buying into it and they you know it's important that the older guys buy into it young guys have. They don't have a choice but the older guys if they can buy into it You know then you got a chance of maybe changing the culture a little bit. So we'll see what happens but you know I expect both of those guys to try to change from what they did last year whether it's in their stance whether it's in their thought process whether it's defensively. I I mean I think they're all not willing to change because they don't want that declined to continue. What were your first impressions of the work? That far hines eighty baseball obstinate in his first year. Well you know he got handed. A tough tough hand and I think the organization had an idea of what of what direction they wanted to go to and then I think Farhan had an idea of direction that he wanted to go into. And then I think at some point you know they had to come together and And realize that if you keep running out an older team then you're going to really run out of wins quickly for a long time. So you know he's you know he's done a really good job of of help. Restocking the minor league system you know he mean with Ron. It's the land of opportunity. I mean if you're twenty seven twenty eight twenty nine year old pitcher and an you've pitched a lot of years in the minor leagues and you've done okay. You're going to have an opportunity. And it doesn't mean a giants organization it could be from any organization. He is going to give you a chance. Got Forty pitchers in camp seventy two players so that she is the true definition of the land of opportunity. How quickly do you think that they the giants can can go through this process? We saw the diamondbacks. In recent years restructure their payroll Trade Goldschmidt Trades Cranky. Restocked the farm system and they looked to be in a better spot and What's your sense of how quickly the giants can do that. Well I don't know how many wins are going to have this year. Buster it could be seventy could be seventy five could be. Maybe if they really get lucky and everything works out you know. Maybe they can go beyond that that eighty number but I do think that when sorry. Han decided not to resign calar. I think it was the perfect example of how they feel about this year and how they feel about twenty one and twenty two. We're GONNA win X. amount of games with KHA LAR or without power and with Paul are. We're not gonNA find out who the Senate is going to be twenty one or twenty two. So that was his thinking. After this year the giants will have a good idea who their centerfield is going to be in the future. And I think that's basically a great example of what goes on in the mind of far Han You Know I. I am impressed with them. I mean they bought. They bought Coz art basically. They traded for closer to take his money. And they got their angels number-one pick who they wanted draft in the first place. So I mean that's kind of the things that they're trying to do. Yeah would the flexibility the financial flexibility there and his imagination. I you know people with other teams. Think that That you know they'll be making progress shortly and last one for you. Do you prefer. Holstein's our jerseys. Well you know what every time you drove boy. My Dad's dairy farm. It was all hosting I I'm not sure I saw the Jersey for like until I was eighteen years old driving to college. In Centerville Iowa was the first time I said to my dad. I said what is that he goes. Oh that's a jersey. I go really. You should yeah. That's chocolate milk comes from That was your loss that you didn't hang out with jerseys. All right well thank you. Let's put it that way. Bleacher tweets already buster liter tweets for Thursday. But I I encourage you fair listener to check out today's episode of Espn Daily. All vin. Gonzales was on with me and talk about Shohei Ohtani. He's a unique talent. Who can pitch and hit? You know this but he set to both for the angels. This season here how he can make history. It's ESPN daily with subscribe. Wherever you get your podcasts onto the tweets here Corey Rupert at Corey are underscore twelve corey. Basically wants to know. Who's one in the? Al East has everything that's going on with the Yankees and the Red Sox recently caused you to change your mind on. Who's winning the division? No I still think the Yankees or the overwhelming favourite to finish first place. I think the razor overwhelming favorites to finish second place with sale going down. I do wonder if the Jays are going to press the Red Sox for third place but it does feel very distinct tiers. I don't know if you agree with me Taylor but that's certainly I could see it playing out. Yeah I think gang keys are still in that top tier. I think the rays have a better shot than the the red SOx of the moment. And then you know the red sox probably be middling there and then Jason in my owes there at the bottom. So I'm still well. Yeah there's a distinct here for your os we can pencil fifth-place. I'm definitely taking the under on their win. Total over under here. I'M GONNA put a couple of dollars on that. I would encourage you to do the same last tweet for today. Marketing at Mark Underscore Keating Ninety writes in with all the Astros Talk. It unfortunately seems that people have forgotten. Just how great. The World Series was seven games amazing pitching amazing clutch hitting the net starting the season so poorly et cetera. Mark Basically said in a statement but buster. Have you forgotten about this amazing world series? Does it bum you out of the Astros candles? Basically over shadowed classic and What baseball been worse off? Had the Astros one. Oh my goodness can you imagine one like this spring and 'cause then the talk about how? The answers cheated away to one championship casual fans and maybe other players be talking about cheating their way to two championships and yeah the world series last year was phenomenal and I think Mike Rizzo the general manager of the nationals. Gave Voice to this right at the beginning of camp because as you know the nationals and the Astros share the same facility and on the first days of camp the Astros camp was overrun with reporters. Who were there to get the reactions in the responses and to hear from the Astros players and the nationals had nobody. The defending champions didn't get any extra cupboards because they were completely overshadowed by the Astros scandal. Yeah it's pretty amazing and honestly we really haven't talked a whole lot of Nazi either. I mean that's just because of what people are interested in and we will talk nats especially next week in our enemies preview. But it's it's crazy and I I know just from doing a little bit of reading and listening to people going down to the Nats Astros facility that the nats players I I. I wonder I think maybe more than anyone are tired of talking about the astros because they are literally right there and it's right in their faces. Yeah and I think they're annoyed. I I think that they feel like when we talk about what the Astros cheating cost other players. Here's one more thing right that the attention should rightly. Go to the nationals's spring. They're the defending champions. And nobody's talking about them now you reference next week. We have the National League each preview. We're going to be talking with Rowley. Athletic about the nationals. Good stuff today buster again. Thanks for listening to these previews. If you didn't listen to the preview go back on Tuesday. We have two more slated.

in in there might have been the tooth pick thing I always thought that was cool I tried that for a little bit as a kid it didn't work out well yeah go ahead and do that I mean they they give them credit I think they may have get give some players on Kentucky basketball but you know I remember really I don't I don't think I started doing the hot what makes sense to me but he actually got the credit for that not I don't remember the other player was but it was when I think of a eighties twenty played with the doctor sure I think that makes sense so Danny how do you feel about this red steamy paying attention of the meaning they they made some moves there they're thought to to be it right there in the hunt for the NL central of title so that that's kind of nice yeah I think that really improve the major and I I I I heard that the payroll and stock a hundred a hundred and twenty million dollars I don't that four year book all the guaranteed contract that they have to do but it really makes you think that they had a quote stop back when Frank Robinson played for the red stop somebody was telling somebody another player with that's why he makes the big box Walmart and our with sixty thousand dollars a year yeah at absolutely amazing the salaries that these guys get played it off that one player easily make more than the whole game is to make even the sixty votes seventy this is astronomical he is at this point I think it's about a hundred thirty five hundred thirty six mills what it is it and while it has grown and it sounds like a lot of money but it's it's the nature of the game and obviously if they win it's not it's not a problem but in all of the winning doesn't happen that's another story Denny I appreciate the call and and certainly perspective that goes along with it five one three seven four nine seven thousand eight hundred the big one pound seven hundred eighteen anti I don't know about the the whole inventing the hi fi that one not taking credit which would you prefer well you know the the inventing the high fiver World Series ring and caring that trophy I think I take the the World Series ring every time Miller just me Spring Hill Tenn seven hundred WLW him in either I'm okay what would be excited about these rich and you feel like the the prognosticators are correct because I I we used to say that I thought they were drunk or higher had blunt head trauma when they were saying they had no hope of what not gonna believe I gotta believe and and then began to they were always will almost always right I'm real excited about what to read that next year main I can't believe they spent the money that they spent I think they have a good enough team last year to complete but that their pitching was wasn't there wall was for a while the I mean the the starting pitchers did you were were not as strong as you would hope that the relief corps was there and then they got tired out and and you know that that's the nature of the expectation is of course it in the debt that Chris wealth mention this I mean you know the the one through five of the starting rotation looks solid as could be and you could even go down six and seven is a possible situation there too so that's that right there will get you through and with some bats and generating offense that yeah I don't know about the small ball thing I mean we got so many big batch then you'll have to worry about on over into just like bring them home well I'm I'm answer no excuses this year they're saying hand pertain to deal with and I really like I mean even some of the guys that they had played last year that started for like a week and ring and and that couple Lestat it's going to be able to keep her get out of some of the guys and say that that's off the bench kind of stuff there that's it in a case in need and AS left handed or right handed when when you know there's that requirement to when you need some type of move to be made I appreciate the call J. since first on the other side I like this shepherd service bunting sucks see I I think and I don't know I don't know if I'm too old school about this or not everybody's about the excitement of the home run everybody's the excitement about you know the lot of offense and I and I like scoring runs especially that's our team doing it but the manufacturing of runs a in the danger on the base pads of do you know shaking a picture and their confidence and not sure what's going on something that Billy Hamilton was great at but the problem is you getting to first to be able to start becoming a thief taken second third is the problem it but the bond and then just you know situationally speaking doing what you have to do to move stuff around it and the amazing thing with these guys a lot of the time even with the pitching being strong is it it's almost like pro golfers in many cases where these guys can actually place the ball where they want to place at all tonight I wanna put it over there now granted they they do a lot of stuff with you know you know all the stats to say okay well we're gonna open up love field go ahead but nobody that nobody bonds they hit it over that direct that's the thing I don't understand and I mean and I'm just a simple man trying to find my way in the world about this are you are you ready for its baseball do you do you see the promise are you hopeful do you believe or you waiting because it's been so many years of misery sterling hang out with room for you to speak your mind coming up on the other side seven four nine seven thousand eight

"Twelve strikeouts in five innings if he doesn't run into trouble in the fifth he could've you know he'd pitched the sixth and seventh which was a possibility going into what kind you know how how the crowd has been reacting throughout these playoffs how much in love the are with players like Ren Don Soda I I have series comes to Washington DC for game three and four eighteen in championship series sweeps are one in seven in the world series so they're in I was listening to Curtis Granderson last night on on CBS he was onto those teams Adam and he talked about that the layoff really killed their offense of momentum you know it it helps pitching to get the rest but it hurts them in terms of the momentum that they had offensively I'm so we'll see how that plays out so when thinking about New York in Houston like one best case would be that they use up burland coal for a second time in those guys aren't available early in the world series but then again that means that those teams are coming in in with some momentum into the world series how do you see it I follow that completely I think that in the nationals case kind of momentum to lose right now but it will get them the pitching advantage to have everybody fresh and Martinez and the staff can pick okay do we want to put it the nationals no matter what I would be worried if they faced the Yankees with how how they can just hit home runs off virtually any pitcher we'll see so i I think one of the debates that nats fans are going to have here over the next six days is how how should Dave Martinez set his pitching rotation I think maybe I'm in the minority on this I think the one big mistake that he got away with so far in this postseason is he got lucky starting assures are instead of Strasbourg in the wildcard game they had to get a broken-bat bloop single hit by a pitch in an error by the right fielder on the Soto hit in that wildcard aim.

"Sarah Lang's reported in a producer for MLB DOT COM in Sarah. Ask The question about going into a playoff game or playoff series. There are times when I'll have a gut field yeah. This team is definitely going to win this game. Do you have that that feeling about either. One of those wild card games. You know not really I feel like this is what's so fun. I feel like are the American really game. Tomorrow is completely up for grabs. I feel like because of how those two teams handle their pitching staff everything else. It's just so difficult to know what is going to happen there and it feels like something where you know if the game gets away from either team earn early innings that could decide it or we could see you know them battling it out and be scoreless up until the seventh or something like that and I'm really excited for this game tonight because either we're going to see. Max Sherzer be back like he was at the beginning of the year and maybe we'll finally see the nationals nationals advance which I would just absolutely love to see from the baseball standpoint or we're GONNA see this brewers team that has been even more beat up than losing Christian Yelich if that that was even possible we saw with Lorenzo Cain and Ryan Braun being out over the weekend like if they can pieces together with Brandon Woodruff Reliever last year I mean I feel like they're so so up for grabs a hundred percent royal. Let's play the numbers game number three number three is four so the nationals franchise including the Expos has lost four straight winner take all postseason games beginning with the Nineteen eighty-one and lcs damn five and a best of five that year so then they lost in two thousand twelve twenty sixteen and twenty seventeen and LDS game fives those at home and they're four straight winner take call game losses is tied for the third longest such streak in MLB history. The longest streak is an active one and that will come into plan Wednesday. It's the as at Eighth Street and the four straight winner take all game losses at home is tied for the second longest such streak all time and the as again have the only longer straight at five straight great number two number two is zero so Max Scherzer had a scoreless start in his first career postseason appearance in game two of the LDS Ds against the Yankees in twenty eleven when he was on the Tigers. He went six innings. He allowed two hits and no runs but since then he's allowed at least one running each of his his fifteen postseason outings twelve of which have been starts his a four zero three era in that span in the postseason and of course he is three ten K. postseason games in that span but the most recent of those was a thirteen k outing in game two in two thousand thirteen so you know we haven't quite seen the masters or that wins those Cy Young Awards awards strikes out twenty batters in the postseason lately some really interested to see if he shows up tonight number one number one thousand nine hundred and six so the brewers. I went one thousand nine hundred six over their final twenty five games this year tied for their best final twenty five game stretch to end any season in franchise history and the other year her when they did that was all the way back last year in two thousand eighteen. Obviously that year ended with an S. appearance game seven so it went pretty well for them but this team is pretty the hurt in a different spot but you know it's interesting you know they went four and two against nationals this year including that fourteen inning win against nationals where they won fifteen fourteen fourteen. Sean doolittle out three home runs back and forth game with Josh Hader and everybody so you know I'm really interested to see. I almost wish we got a series between these two because I think it would be really fascinating fascinating. It would be fascinating. Are you at an airport on your way out here to the west coast I am. I'm so sorry you can hear everything can't you. That's okay. We're we're used to the baggage. Claim days travel safe zero see you tonight at our meeting sounds good. Thank you so much faster long.
