"700 value. Well, tell you the home of the Cincinnati Reds. 11 09 in the Queen City of Cincinnati. Chick Ludwig 700 wlw. Welcome back to the Kelsey Chevrolet Extra Innings show. Matt Steinman is tonight's producer. And we're coming to you on a night when the Reds failed a big test, losing five to nothing to the Chicago White Sox at Great American Ballpark. It's not time to panic. It's not time to give up. It is time to embrace the grind in rebound on Sunday. One 11th pitch in the final game of this three game series against the White Sox. Michael Lorenzen goes to the Hill for the Reds. He's too and one with a 4.56 e R A and Dylan cease is five and two for the White Sox with a 3.20 E R. A first pitch from Great American Ballpark tomorrow. 1 10. And the Reds. Their best just went silent tonight, and this is a crucial time because they're battling The ST Louis Cardinals for second place in the National League Central Division and the Cardinals right now are playing the woeful Pittsburgh Pirates and taken advantage of it. The Reds just could not solve White Sox lefty starter Dallas Chi Kel. Falling five to nothing. To end their six game winning streak and even the three game Siri's at one game apiece. And if you just take away two pitches Retched order Trevor Bauer brilliant, allowing five hits over seven innings with walk and five strikeouts. But those two pitches came in the fifth inning solo home runs by Nomar Mazara and Tim Anderson for a two to nothing. White Sox lead and then manager David Bell called upon Robert Stephenson. To kind of hold the fort down. And Robert was. Bye Bye, Bobby. He yielded back to back to back homeruns by Tim Anderson, Yasmani Grandal and Jose a break you before he retired one batter. And the red so frustrating, putting seven runners on base the first three innings but couldn't score against cycle cycle only lasted four innings. Gave up four hits with three walks, but he mesmerized the Reds with the off speed stuff, striking out seven. Five runs. Eight hits. No. Where's five left on base for the White Sox, who leave the ale Central with a 34 18 record. The Reds No runs six hits. Nowhere is nine left. They fall to 26 27 there in third place in the NL Central again behind the Cardinals, now in just a percentage point ahead of Milwaukee. The Brewers are in fourth place, the only good news with seven games remaining. The Reds cling to the second wildcard spot in The National League that Foster gets the win for Chicago and relief of Chi Kel. He's five. No. Bauer takes the loss. He's been awesome this year, but his record stands at 500 at four and four. And that is tonight's recap, and it's brought to you by serve all electric one call that's all. Serve all electric dot com. Let's go out to the phones and we welcome in Mark on a cell. Mark, Speak to me, my brother. Yes, sir. I will, um, Couple of things 1st 1st thing, Adam the ball. You remember him from the red?

"So he beats Garrett. And it's five to drive to center. He thinks he got it. He isthe right three. What a night for hobby. Remember a couple of hours ago, say. Sake. Feeling for timing is not there after two consecutive strikeouts since then, it's been double on too long ones. That's right, too long ones, and one of those long ones was a really long one, and the Cubs get a much needed win to get the four and one while the Cardinals were losing to the Twins. So the Cubs are off to a very good start in the National League Central Division 3123323776 will get back to some more highlights that Chris was able to procure for us, But let's go to the phones. Real quick. Matt is in River north and that what's up, Sparky? Hey, Good morning, cap. You agree with a lot of things You said today the one thing you know we're going to talk about the white sacks. I think they vastly overrated this pitching staff and one thing and I'm not saying the White Sox did. I'm saying what I heard immediate When did he leave? It'll become Tom Seaver. Great first half deserved to pitch. The All Star game last year was fantastic, was not very good. In the second half. They shut him down early because he was getting hit. Any, You know, He's a guy halfway in between that cycle's solid C says good stuff. He should straight himself out. But if you're going to tell me Carlos Road odd to me, that was a disgusting performance yesterday. That's what he typically gives you. It's so painful to watch that guy pitch. Would you rather have him or chat with? I mean, have you Carlos were down and you know they won't be on the team next year. Yeah, so it is not a factor to me. Your wife Sox fan. I have one more year control on road down. A lot of the people. Why would you keep him well again? You know you could also look at him Go. He's just coming back from Tommy John. He's always hurt. I don't disagree. A good look because you've got guys like Gar fine today, but I talking about him like he's Sandy Colfax. I mean, You won't be in the cuts rotation. I don't think. Ah, well, I mean, where would where would he be? If not turn, Alec Mills Right now, That would be better, right? And here's the thing. Howard Hendricks is the best pitcher in the city by far I've always I've always believed that if he doesn't stop, I missed you on post game. Trust me. It's not the same. Well, just doing recaps on Twitter were having laughs and value on Twitter. I could get your recap. Yes, some every night. After every cub's game, he'll get one. Are you ever going to a podcast? You know, with the recap of the Cub games, Maybe we'll see that that would be over here is the one who is a guy who calls in and he always rips Hem Inez and sees Trade for containing terrible I would love to have those two guys back in time.

Don't know what he learned from broadcasting now I. DO understand that. He was part of the red. SOX turtled lot of organization because he wasn't going to stick around anywhere really. by David Ross, the new manager Of Your Twenty Twenty National League Central Division champions apparently. When we go cubs, reds, brewers, cardinals prior and actually almost put cardinals just in dead last just for spite. All right, so you give the third place cubs from a year ago and making them the champs. You're taking the fourth place. And I think that the reds are better than a fourth placing. I don't really think there's a lot of shame and finishing fourth in this division I think that all four of those teams outside of Pittsburgh or have a good chance of You know have a good chance of winning the division. Maybe maybe get one wildcard media to anyway. Slice it up I. think that you could consider these four team. Saint Louis Milwaukee Chicago and Cincinnati reds to be. One A one B, one C and one D or Some combination makes them seem equal even if They won't be and you know you can have a team that Scott. It's hard to relate to the numbers that are good, because it's so easy to say eighty nine ninety wins, but when you don't have that much of a margin for error is. The magic number is probably thirty, four, thirty, four, thirty, five is probably the cutting the cutting line to get in depending on You know depending on what you're chasing chasing division title, or you're chasing a wildcard. Let's Let's go get you it here with the national, League West. Did we establish the bottom feeder of the West Yeah We. Might have agreed with me and not have the I have the rockies. It has to be the rockets. What happened to them? They shelled out a lot of money for knowing Aaron auto the. Pitching EEK. These notes are just not copious notes, but they all say something unique at the top of the page. To indicate what the were. The major concern is going to be as far as the rockies. They've got the right manager. They've got a superstar core. Blackman's the superstars. In addition to two zero. David Doll. great leadoff hitter. Aeronautic trip story about her story. I. Mean You know he's? He's third or fourth best player on that team. Maybe he can pitch. Go come in from shortstop to pitch because they don't have a lot they have such little pitching that I didn't even write anything down for their pitching staff I know that Jonathan Gray is there. I have a smiley face, which which is kind of like the little slanty face, though like the rural face and black men and air, Yondo. Yet, you're smiling, right? No like my my my note is just a kind of. Face! What do you do about that pitching staff they're in. Colorado at least Denver's nice place to be you know even if you have to lose a lot of games. Do you think that they're I mean I think that they're the best of the three bottomfeeders. I they're better than Pittsburgh and Miami and the. Each Other, so it's just GonNa be and these records aren't equal. The with the. Al Eastleigh the NFL, East I think that there are three teams there I think. I think that the cubs. The one a one B. Once. In the National League central I date. They are going to feast. On Kansas City and Detroit, so there's two of those teams in the central. It's only four games. But if you lose one if you lose on everybody else sweeps Detroit. You lose on the royals. Everybody else sweeps them. That puts you in a bad position. I mean especially when you're when you're saying thirty two leaves you out thirty five gets in. You you know you can't afford to lose those games you have to treat. You almost have to treat it like football where you go out to go out there every time trying to get a win, but I think that there are times in games when managers aren't exerting themselves, figuring we'll save it for tomorrow, and you know you're GonNa get to that point even with a shortened season. However I think that there's a lot more conceding sixty two game season. Then you're GONNA see a sixty game season. Especially Games fifty one through sixty. Because you'RE GONNA know you're know that you're a half a lot of teams are going to feel like they have to all those games..

"On the Sunday mornings glad you're with us Reds baseball later this afternoon at twelve oh five sterling isn't you'll take a right up the Reds baseball he will solve all the world's problems before the Reds begin play today and probably create six and a half seven more and the Reds Iraqis are glad it in Colorado the reg five and a half games out of first in the National League central division as you know you listen to the show I peruse the internet's quite a bit and one of my favorite websites is the athletic I like it for two reasons one it's not jumped up with videos that just won't go away when you go to their homepage into there's not a lot I adds it's a subscription website you get what you pay for I don't know what the cost is like nine Bucks a year it's not bad at all but I saw two articles in the last week that were authored by one of my favorite baseball writers you know serwis guy knows sabermetrics but he doesn't give yes so many that your eyeballs roll in the back of your head and he knows how to write to you two stories one was about of the baseball and why the baseball is so different this year and why it is the corporate for so many home runs and end and here's the big part Major League Baseball players pitchers are cheating and nobody wants to turn the men because that would then be admitting there's a problem with the baseball the other one that he wrote this week that I was with I thought was great five not exactly bold predictions for the second half of the season and involved in that is one of those five isn't is about the National League central division and your Cincinnati Reds this is a guy that I think can hold my attention for any baseball story anywhere and I'm someone that has the attention span of a gnat and ito serwis knows it you know good morning welcome to the show and how are you I wouldn't say that about I'm sorry who am I talking to no I don't let's start first tonight because this is the one that that I I find absolutely astounding well we know that the baseball is different this year we know that the seams are not quite as as raised we know the ball is slicker and we've we've seen all the metrics on that all the theories and even some of the evidence of such but it it you raise in your article the pictures may be using some sort of substance to gain better can of better control of the ball her command is an off this year but the controllers off a little bit because of the way the ball grips so what are we talking here pine tar dad's glue that you know maybe he snapped what what are we talking about here yeah right when I look at the life of the fault of the moving average and you get back I couldn't find much evidence commander and I think that the reason is they're all using something to get a grip on the ball in three the evidence for this is not only that everyone's talking about it we have one that meeting at but I would probably do a picture he was loading up on my card well that's not it's up to the point where you don't know what's gonna call anyone out on it because the whole bit the way that you called them on our date the umpire paycheck the manager to come out of this guy and no man is gonna do that to the notes he was doing no yeah I mean it doesn't but what it is is done mostly fine art but about boiling down coca Cola aren't part of the thing to get the most he you know read the new thing that they can find and and hiding it in there go on all you have a lot of players that but usually to get a little more python what is brilliant writer as you are I'm just wondering if you know that and the managers know that rob Manfred is got to know that it's sort of the folks that comprises competition committee why isn't he stepping forward and saying something I think on is it true where well if you know the players the new bombing your whole lander Abby all yeah I mean that that's a pretty amazing if you think about it to have something where you know I have heard about the new ball three four years ago and he laughed at it literally rapidly in front of a real reporter and when I called it after lack the rehabilitate you've got a little bit but I don't know the tables of birthday he's kind of I think while going a little bit because everyone as do you have any no and if he starts going after your I'm not saying that the ticket control the situation thank you something like walk out but I don't want basically of Major League Baseball player population he nodded and you know it's best to have time with their for a new collective bargaining well in your article you merry anecdote with science and up it's clear at least from the the data that you present here that the command the pitcher has compared this year to last year is not and you've got it with with individual pictures it it there it's miniscule it's nothing but apparently it's the way the ball maneuvers through the air that's creating all of this consternation at all of these home runs so I mean the theory you know I'm a conspiracy to conspiracy theorists of baseball you know they love the home run ball I'm saying they're not gonna do anything regardless of whether a manager wants to die and another manager I think they think this is from a business standpoint a really good thing I would not have I I don't envision anybody stepping up in trying to say Hey what exactly does I don't know pick any notice Syndergaard have wonders cap I don't think anybody's going to do that yeah yeah I think I think it happened around I'm not sure that you put anything in writing but not in any way that hello round it and I think it is I'm not yes it is a benefit both of I'm not sure that this is something that yeah own Raleigh it's just that you own the company does not know everything about their money back your fault decision making process how Barco are built in and I know that you don't have to mess around what is the best book and lost his job the joint is the ball R. so no matter what there's no paper trail all we were an account of the act and probably just something that happened by act of the rolling group trying to become more efficient trying to save money on the ball they did me tomorrow and then on the bottom I think that that's sort of what I believe the easiest thing to believe them not at all so can you because I don't Jenny with you know Sir is the athletic he's got two good stores the other one is his five not so bold predictions for the rest of the Major League Baseball season the one that caught my eye was number five the division winner with the fewest wins won't be the weakest division winner and that would be whoever wins the National League central division and you know you and I talked about this before the season began I didn't think any of these teams in the NL central division would reach ninety wins it appears it's not going to happen what if I am another team I don't I don't want to be matched up against Milwaukee I think that I think that could be a death wish and if the cubs bullpen ever gets its act together you could say the same thing about the cubs to the what the this could turn out to be a division that produces the strongest contender outside of the Dodgers with the National League Championship yeah I've ever I thought that when we talk about going and if you are disappointed I would say you know about a great team there goes Q. and you know that right at the end of the war there are at the bottom that you have a date the order of the blue jays are right Marlon they're not nobody in that meeting up one at a we are going to I'm not sure that's the case because of this really hard contact but Mr to Asia though you don't know how many we the cubs would have that effect if you got to play the model worked out I I honestly think about thanks so flying you know really good game all year round and will probably be some of the more active the deadline because they know you know they have to even get into the park well yeah and and you've got data in this not yours with someone else's that factors in the real strength of a baseball team in the Reds are top five according to this in a in the National League a top five team which leads to the conversation that's going on and just about every if not old Major League Baseball cities the by or DSL at the deadline and I'm looking at the Reds and I review I I read there is baseball hell any any team it's four games back to seven games back to me is a team what do you do I mean it's it's again a lot of it is is banned revenue I want to run off my fan base so I build for next year but there a lot of teams this is my point there are a lot of teams in the middle right now as seems to be the case almost every year now recently that they don't know where they're at and and I don't know what the what what the the pool players will be like what it comes down to the deadline because of that yeah you will one trade that all active yeah I think you might actually be less active back thank you thank you they're in the middle of the fight earlier you know they they they really in particular the rest a really interesting because there is not and the queue is better actually right and it and they got they got the extra time to the one that got the fact that if they sell off and you know thirty one that makes baseball that okay not make it let so we have something for me at well that makes sense however you still have the twenty then the next year if you run off I want all the people that started coming apart good exactly I think it actually keep hello RK yeah we actually think about baseball I would hope hi plastic exciting want you to come your doctor Turner about anything because you're gonna build you really want to want to

"So what that does is it increases the importance of being able to hit for power. It increases the importance of hitting home runs, and we see it with the Indians, for example, where you know, Francisco, endure and Jose Ramirez, all of a sudden are big time, power threats. They're starting to pick up some guys that you know, maybe don't never gonna hit for a high average necessarily, but they're going to hit for it would've been a power. They pick up Leona Martine, for example, who has a big launch angle change. Now it hasn't shown up necessarily in his home run numbers, but he goes from commerical park to progressive field which is much more favorable for left in it hitters. He's got a ninety, six percent gap between his actual slugging percentage and his expected slugging percentage per stat, cast big gap at wool bows while they get forty six points. So the unions are hoping for is that they're hoping that this launch angle change transitions into more power. Of course, he's a d. Offensive upgrade in center field as well. Couple of hamstring injuries this year though. So be careful with those. But this is the big thing to focus on. This is what contending teams have realized. They understand that in the specialized postseason environment, you have to hit for power. You've gotta get a blueprint of blast, hits them solo dogs, maybe a walk in the dinner, something like that. This is how you score runs. So for Milwaukee, don't get the guys that hit for power and then figure out the defensive alignment. Later Johnson Byard is not hit for power. He was an expendable piece. Jonathan stope has power but was stock as has power. So if they get through that wild card game, or if they find a way to win the National League central division, they want those power guys. They will figure it out at that point. But they want those dudes Zik and hit dinger's. So smart teams are figuring this out. Smart teams are realizing this, and you know, we've seen, we saw a couple of deals kind of in that same. You know here at the trade deadline at one of them being Brian dosier to the dodgers. He goes to the dodgers Logan foresight and some prospects go to the twins. The dodgers were thirtieth and weighted on base average from the second base position at two seventy. One only had five home runs dosier hits for power. Those launch angle guy. He'll hit some home runs. They needed an upgrade here anyway, but they focused on a guy like dosier because that's what the playoff environment for run-scoring looks like. So I love that move for the dodgers very smart move for them, huge upgrade to what is already a very strong lineup. I want this Chris Archer deal. It's kind of a throwback baseball trade here. When you get Chris Archer to Pittsburgh for Austin meadows Tyler glass now, basically MLB ready prospects for a proven major league guy. So you know for Pittsburgh here, maybe kind of replacing Garrett Cole bit with a frontline starter in Archer, as I mentioned already earlier on in the program archers run problem could be rectified a little bit at PNC park, and certainly with getting out of the American League east Tampa Bay who not going anywhere this season. They're not going to win the wild card. They're not a playoff threat. They get Austin meadows and Tyler glass. Now they can kind of focus on building up those two guys. They needed an influx of starting pitching talent in their organization with a young guy like glass now, because you've got Brent Honeywell out with Tommy John. You've got up like snows right now. Jake Fara just came back off the deal know they've had some subject problems with their major league ready, starting pitchers. So getting glass now, certainly a big help for them. He's got good. Stuff just needs to harness it and you'll maybe find the right kind of spot here in Tampa Bay. But that was a very fun trade. That's one of those trades that, you know, we used to see all the time, but now it's really just buying rentals and buying guys with a year and a half of could of contract control and stuff like that..
