"What did you. i thought it was interesting. In the first few minutes he actually took interventions rather than getting into the main flow and and made a point of it. He was oh cool. I want to hear my colleagues and then quickly adding because he realized that man probably seven every that seconds he decided he was not going to take semi interventions but as you say when he was responding to them. You didn't really get a sense. He was engaging too much in the point of making generally speaking. And i think on. The theresa may one adjoining boris johnson once again to conversation about when he had spoken to people but i think it was also quite clear from that intervention and others that boris johnson is adamant that there was not a military solution to this off to the us decided to pull out and that's something does put him at loggerheads with several of his mp's hugh i think d- believe that at the current situation that could have been avoided or the very least could have been less chaotic than it has played. And i think that you can. Boris johnson trying to mountain defense. But also as a result of that not fully engaging when it comes into specifics. She took free that. I think it's fair to say that.

Was that much sympathy on the tory. Benches dominic robb. At the moment. I think that if you look at the general anger in the fact that this really not much tool. That's being supportive towards boris johnson. The government so far in this debate some of the most difficult inventions with the government have come from the tory side. I think if you if you look at that. I think it reflects the sense that the government has mishandled this now. There is a debate of in the tory party. About how exactly have mishandled it so there is some do think that there is an alternative after your side to pull out. There was a way to have that continued military presence. And that could avoid some of this. There are obviously gene. Do you think probably it was inevitable that the uk would have to leave afghanistan. And you'd have a situation where the alabama take control. But it didn't have to be done in this way. And i think the problem debate. Dominic robb isn't all these scenarios at any.

But he was a definite prospect. He was a he was a relevant player right. But i don't think tortoise today falls in the same descriptive category as scott kingery. There's a pretty wide guy tightly with that. But i mean if it's tours for story straight up that's a really intriguing deal there because i'm the go all in on signing trevor story and it's a good place for him to land outside of colorado marquette. The marquess tree possibility fascinates me where. You're saying. Tough fifteen you could sign me up for that but do you really think it's going to just click overnight like that. I think it's already clicked for him. And the only thing holding back. Herman marquez is denver and even now it's not holding them back. What working on these pitch better. In denver autumn. I know lost internet but i still have the squad gas working. So fair dare jinx. I'm not trying to jinx anything. He's six years. The wires literally plugged into my computer. My internet's not working but his home road splits. Last i looked at her marquez. We're fine like three gator home home. He's not john. Snow does too but okay. What's that was our last question. 'cause no that's the thing you're it's flipped over this year. This is the folly of home road splits in the past. He was clearly better on the road. I mean it wasn't even close and this year. He's better at home okay. Maybe that's like a pitch new york. We wouldn't be scared of the ballpark right in very we wouldn't really i mean if you're not if he's doing well in coors like why the hell that it's well it's the altitude. I guess he's still left. Handed hitters yankee stadium hitting on runs. I don't isn't a comfort like the rockies haven't they don't have like this who they then traded. There's no right now. There's no comfort pitcher like this being traded by denver. He really he be cease about the trade to milwaukee he could be that or he could be baldo jimenez finish in cleveland. He got arms not their current. He's carrying my frigging labor team or anything to be closer to cece. Of course. I traded it with my early because i needed save. So i'm the full here to more shares at least circle back the trivia. Here who are. The three pitchers have thrown at least seven innings on eight occasions. This season zack. Wheeler zach number. One with eleven. that's crazy. I think he leads the league. In innings and eleven times kevin guzman. Kevin guardsmen has seven seven just mess. There are a handful of seven. How about that sandy. Alkan tara now he is at six. Well i suck all right if you start getting trivia questions wrong. I mean. I'm doing something right. Doesn't mean your bed while i hope it's not suspended dodger. Man i want to talk about him again. Bessette facet seven could guess that grant cranky and nine. You're missing one. Another elder statesman not sherzer masher elder statesman not kershaw knocker show elder statesman. I'm telling you it's not you you you're nailing these i know it is i know what it is. 'cause i've got him on all my teams i've got i bet you do because you have all guys so well. You know what a lot of them are doing. Well it's definitely adam wainwright definitely is wayne right. He's he's wow. Is there anything to that. i mean wheeler. The youngest of them is thirty. One years old. But greek in wainwright like old man. Ninety six when you throw ninety six ninety eight you you get arm troubles or you know into grabs case side or oblique or whatever troubles like like these guys are just smart pitcher i hate. I hate the saying that announcers he knows how to pitch pretty much. Everybody in the major leagues those pitch. Even eric sogard knows how to pitch. But the problem is when you say. Oh wainwright and cranky. Their veteran guys know how to pitch. Okay f. one knows how to pitch to. We just can't do it as well but these guys like. They have moxie they change speeds. That's what i think. Changing speeds is very important. It's not as important storing ninety eight every time but it's born. You know guys to command the word you so often in this game and people when people use that phrase. You know exactly what they're talking about. It's that they used to throw hard and now they don't anymore and they found her with other pitches they're fooling hitters and keeping them off balance wainwright adjusted to diminish stuff in his later years. He's done an excellent job of doing baseball announcers mandate. I just have to meet them half the time because when they say things or were they say analytics or ruining baseball sure. That's exactly what you're doing your genius go ahead. It's all because shifting whatever you say..

"Would i add. Jose iglesias labor. Probably not but i nico. Horner has a chance to be better than labor tourists in the second half of the season. I know we keep doing labor. But he's got three home runs at the all star break. So what are we. What are we doing here. Yeah us at all to beat the narrative into the ground around somebody a player that one of us just generally doesn't like like i mean. Look eric did a like laboratories this year and was dead on. He's had a terrible year. I didn't see this common though. I mean how do you go from thirty home. Runs to a pace for six but like hairs guys with lower. Slugging percentage yelich. I would trade for matt shelvin of oakland very good june. Yeah i would trade for yom moncada slugging three ninety eight. Okay if healthy yeah. I would say he's never going to run. You know like we thought. But he's only got five. Home runs to more labor charleston. I still like him. And he resorted was seven. Home runs and nine steals. Who saw that coming but he can do better. We know he's got more power than that. Well lemay you don't have to trade for lemay who i have to think so. He's a better player than this. I mean indoor so much name value right like right now right exactly like anybody who has door is stuck for the long haul by all means reach out. But i don't expect you're going i just i just had somebody asked me a question about you. Know bringing labor tours back into this work another counter another trade counterpart just traded for the guy. And i got a question about. Do i give these to kind of useless players for gleyber torres. You've got to ask yourself. Why would the person with that do that. And that's where you're at with wind door. Why would you gonna give two guys who just doing nothing for francisco indoor. Why would the personal with linda do that. Why would i think lindores are goodbye. Low so i would think is too but i think you're gonna have to pay with a guy who's performing very we. We have to reevaluate linda warriors for next year. He might see a just a fifteen homer fifteen still guy. Best to seventy which is fine but at the top fifty pick. He is a much better real life than fantasy player. And you raise that question in march. And i remember i was in. I was intrigued and moved them down. Accordingly i had no shares. Because i didn't think he was a second round pick and most people did. But i didn't see this you know. He's been better in june as well. So if you're going to buy chap and you have to buy all indoor bef wants to know who your favorite over. Achieving pitcher is to keep rolling in the second half this is when comparing era to expected era. Kyle gets in taiwan walker. Marcus stroman oh man insen walker stroman. I mean this is. This is the question from a month ago. I have quite. I have concerns about all three performance to some degree. Stroman have any strikeouts in his last outing right. Because i have on a team and i'm like what is that all about you. Were on kyle gibson. You were right about that. I did not see that coming. I mean it wasn't. It's not really ballpark related. On kyle gibson is it. I mean it's just like it's been a very very pitching friendly ballpark but could control. Yeah you know so and good strike. Our i mean how gibson striking out this many batters. That's that's part of it So give him credit. For that. Taiwan walker taiwan walkers. Isn't he the best. Come on my my instinct tells me i'd rather have taiwan walker and i don't have much more than just the gut is saying so and it's a big god so it knows what i'm talking about. I guess okay on that good weekend of eating so yeah clearly i probably would. Cash in the cow gets chip. I think i would too. I think stroman fine. You know you're going to get you know. We rank them not in the top. Forty starting pitchers but but inside top fifty five not strike out guy similar question. Nick pa- vada. No i no. I'm begging both of them in labor and it's been glorious. It was herman marquez. I'm on my kids is really good. Is he only gonna get better if he gets moved. You know what he's pitching. Fine court right now coors. That's what i'm saying. Do we want him to stay in coors. Like is this that weird. I don't know how. I don't know what colorado is going to get for. I think it's going to be moving right. It doesn't make sense for them to keep them that's just from trying to maximize the return for them. As opposed to you. You say it doesn't make sense house colorado going to be good in two years if they don't cover story or herman marquess if no pitching and you wanna trade a guy who you put her in marquez on a contender and he is in the top twenty top fifteen starting pitchers you put them on the yankees right. Now is a normal marquez. In the top. Fifteen starting pitchers theoretically the problem. Is there aren't comps for pitchers leaving cores during the year. None of that caliber except for baldo jimenez and the issue with jimenez a comp was that he was already showing diminish stuff in the year he got traded to cleveland. He was bad. In cleveland after a straight was worse there than he was as a rockies pitcher if the yankees trade gleyber torres david garcia to colorado for trevor story in herman.

"Kyle now for trivial hash browns. Kyle hello to you again. hello guys. it's good to be back. I don't like having the whole the whole crew together here for trivia. I want you guys to name the pitchers that have completed at least seven innings at least eight times this season. Who is giving you volume. In this crazy era of baseball there are three of them. Don carman don carman not one of them randy lerch rocking closer. We get their third some hash browns before we get into the real guesses. Those players are not a clue. I you could make it be boxers franck. They might be your postman. I have no idea spend my postman actually. Did you know the name of your post man or woman. I post person or mel carrier Now but we haven't been in this house all that line so it's not like we've had a consistent report with our area we'll get there. We'll learn this person's name. I have no doubt about spencer first hash brown and he was one of many here. Everybody's up in arms about dylan. Carlson one is yanni. Good to spend on you can drop guy like mile star. Where myers over three overweight him. Now i don't think we did. But i like the fact that he's leading off and he he should be taking away. He has a decent walk rate. But not lately but yeah. He's not doing so hot and he's not running at all. No nary attempted stolen base eighty four games. Huge disappointment that i expected i expected like twenty home runs. Twelve to fifteen steals. We may get the home runs. But i mean mile. Straw has no power but he could still twenty five basis season. So have you need basis. Sure but in a point sleek i. I would try to stick across. We'll myers doesn't look like we'll myers i. How did that last year. I don't because he's back to his old self disappointing. I stick with carlson. Dealing across has sixty seven th percentile sprint speed. And he's as you said no no stolen base attempts. I just don't get it and you know. Historically saint louis does not use the stolen base very much. They actually have fallen into that oakland. In the zero's kind of mold historically of late. Because you know ozzie. smith. Vince coleman beg to differ. But kyle hasn't heard historically in reasonably in the recent frame of memory for people in fantasy. Hear you say something. I wanna make sure that people understand what we're talking about is you're sure you're older than the twenty five years of age like i run. You know like yeah. Who's going to win the nba. Title i want it to be phoenix. I think phoenix i mean. The honest doesn't look like he's gonna play game one at least like if he doesn't play the first game. I don't think they can play from behind like milwaukee a lot but this is not lineup for chris. paul would would philadelphia have beaten milwaukee. If like doc doesn't play. Ben ben simmons in. That's a big if you're playing your starting point guard. He's bad but the my he was i'm playing. I need to know an expert and nba experts. Opinion the seventy sixers. They're currently constructed and coach beaten milwaukee series with the previous series with honest compromise. No this series. Milwaukee just beat atlanta okay which they might not have done trae young healthy. So you're saying if to eastern seventy six game seven against atlanta where they beat mocking eric. There's no way brandon would corbin burns freddie peralta. They would just so hot right now. Calls that geffen is tall. I think he could dunk. Those guys would have been him zach. Epoca benjamin's doesn't want to stunk my dad's like although this damian lillard form i'm like oh sure it's just easy with half the team and every first round pick for the next decade they can get dame lewis all right. What was the question. I got to wondering. Is there a player whose name symbolizes game better than mile straw. Mean like he's using astrada hit with. I don't know his name the drink. Yeah like if you gave me his name with no context. I would tell you exactly what he is. Bob walk. I mean there's a million pictures like who is that. Josh outmanned been a lot of pitcher but he wasn't a good outline. What i was looking for was when the as had blazed tom that he would be like their pinch-runner extraordinarily unperfect and by the way. How can't sky bolt be the most. The fastest guy on oakland is. It's the greatest thing plays skype. There wasn't who's the blaze. Tom guy times a minor. Leager he actually. I think he's on the pirates. Well you can't tell the difference but yes. The oakland kids sky bolt like is very fast. So that's well said. That was the one i was confusing them with mile straws second. Dave loves getting deals done during the all star right ball. Things are a little slower. Who are some bad. You'd look to invest in now. That could be better the rest of the way. That's a good point yes in. It's a good time for reflection next week. When there's no baseball games. That matter and i looked at my team to say can i contain. What do i need to contain. Not not that. I won't do it today. But i don't feel like it but next week when you know we're watching the homerun. Derby is a great time to actually do that. Reflect on your teams and what you really need So i would say but some hitters like there's a lot of hitters right now okay and maybe you've noticed this way with really low slugging percentages based on their history. Yeah they shouldn't. I'm not just talking like one soto who is destroying i. I had a chance to tease and soda in a league couple of years ago and i took soto and now i realize i did it wrong but when you look at some of these slugging percentages and you say how is this like christian yelich. You notice what he's slugging..

"Yeah i'm watching him lot of sliders solas he's combating he's finally getting a slaughter over and is doing. Well you know. Obviously kendall agreement is the guy you really have to rostrum seattle's bullpen. But i do think. Paul sewell does ahead of drew stuck and writer for some saves there any other situations that we have to mention. Where do you stand on minnesota's today. They never win. I think it's i think it's a combination between hans robots and taylor rogers and i think it was a month ago and i think either or both could be traded. Because they're clearly out of it now. Now it's it i think it's almost mandatory. They trade row bliss which is why howard seeing forced into save chances when he's he's the clearly inferior pitcher of the to clear. Yeah but rogers pitched in that game yesterday. Said him up. yeah he was. I didn't he was very good. I wanna see rogers going to san francisco with his twin brother. I think that'd be fun right. Twin brother who throws side arm underhand taylor. The left from minnesota does not do that. But i'd like to see that happen but again nobody's going to make a trade until the absolute deadline. Which is what two weeks from. Friday july thirtieth so it is three weeks from friday. I think three thirty the deadline. It's a saturday. It's three weeks from saturday. No but they moved into friday wherever they didn't want to do it over. Nobody wanted to work. Thank you for doing that. You just save me. Have an update forecasters at six. Pm on a saturday. Well i don't feel like doing it on six. Pm on a friday. Either better than the amount of saturday definitely better than that. Okay moving along. Now let's take a look at the schedule for the next couple of days. Really only a couple of days here because we'll have a show on thursday. Let's see today. Tuesday oh you. Espn's got a double header. It's got milwaukee at milwaukee on fire and opening up a big division lead here and that see the cubs are going to sell because milwaukee has such a big lead but the phillies can't sell because the methadone anyway jake. Degrom is on the mound today against anderson. Every degrom outing is worth watching Even against milwaukee. And you know i just i just wanna seem healthy. And i'm also interested to see you starts also because philadelphia zach. Wheelers season won't be to graham. Why can't these pitching sunday. Well he may pitch sunday. The mets have options to fill enough of their games for the week too. Not start degrom on sunday. But but you're right. If they scratch him he could start the all star game. We'll see jared goff again. And they got him to resign in one deal. Yankees are in seattle. Jameson tie on kind of unimpressed with against sheffield. Is there anything. They were tyrone. I don't know if there is. I've not been impressively. no i. There could be. But i'm not seeing it. There's nothing actionable today. Espn plus as reds at royals lewis. Cass theo who had a great june great june and was a lucky couple of those games like his last most recent outing he he cruised into like the fifth inning. I've got him on multiple teams and then he gave up a couple runs in the six. When he wasn't even in the game the reliever gave them up least gets to. You is going to be really good for the second half of the season and he's already been good for the last six weeks. You should get them so for streaming purposes. You know a streamer stephen math at baltimore. I don't want to activate them in a league. I can do that in. Should i win no small. No it's in baltimore and they do have some guys who can cause headaches matchups. Why i don't like it. Nope they have all star cedric mullins. They do leftovers. Left you there so but it's actually been pretty good of late. He's facing jon. Snow and colorado on the road is awful. The arizona anywhere is awful. Colorado historically poor at course that arizona. I know i'm just saying that. Even a course. They are on track for their worst offensive season as a franchise in their own games. So think about what that means on the road. It means badness Sorry using merrill. Kelly today why not. Yeah and use them over. Stephen matt's to wednesday. Espn has Dodgers marlins with no pitchers so i think the hitters are gonna hit off a t. On wednesday and they probably going. Julio reas the marlins have the problem because they demoted could be jordan. holloway jordan. Holloway was the one they demoted. They'll they'll call up a guy like that just to pitch that game. Whatever the case is watched dodgers marlins. Because it's good baseball. Somebody will start those games so the hitters don't have to hit off a t and the dot product. Starting i would think so. I mean you don't think about this because you know their ace. Pitcher is pitching this week but somebody has to pitch dodgers and is not the price who can't go deepen the weird situation with david price season. I'm disappointed because yes. I believed that david price would be a decent starting pitcher. A top forty starter. This year he would go six innings per game. He'd be fine that they're not even trying to make him a starting pitcher. He's not stretched out for anything. It's very strange. Yeah was the injury really. He's giving utility in the nfl. Only leagues for the most part. And that's about it. What else do we have. Oh patrick corbin and chris paddock interesting match there again. Patrick corbin you know you never know from the outing doubting what he's gonna do. I think if it got him in a weekly. It's it's kind of frustrating. Because i've got him in a weekly and i don't know what to do with i just leave of now. You lost your second. Start in the weeklies are. He's not starting sunday. No no he was supposed to start today and they pushed him back to give them arrest so he can't make two starts this week now and it's a san diego game. Yes disappointing knob. Sonny gray on a pitch limit. Apparently even though he threw eighty six last week off the injured list. He's i can't city you're gonna wanna use in. They're even on a pitch limit. I mean if eighty six is the limit or ninety. That's still pretty good and then thursday and we'll discuss thursday on thursday. Don't forget the double header. Because of the cleveland tampa bay games were there avoiding the hurricane. So they've got a double header on wednesday at his correct. So make sure you look. I mean tuesday today games wednesday. Lots of games thursday. Lots of bay game. So if you're in a daily and you're in you're in july and you're still paying attention you should know when there's going.

"We got lots of them since our last show. And and some odd wants some catchers zach collins not the portland forward but the white sox catcher and kyle farmer. I is there anything there. I mean i as count holiday because definitely matters yes. Monte groundouts probably going on the injured list today and collins will be the starting catcher for the white sox but is it. Is there a pathway to relevance in a ten team league like would you add him in a one catcher the you know and to catcher league. I think you can make the case right and like he takes. Walks doesn't he. He does he whips a lot. There's a ton of swing and miss his game. That's the big problem. You're going for the all or nothing. Potential power outcome and if you look at his numbers the power hasn't been to the level. I was expecting during his prospect status with you to catcher league type. I also be a little worried. The white sox have to seek another catcher. They have lost so many key. Contributors to that lineup. They've got to do something. And if the backstop is where they can add a player a meaningful name. That's going to work against him. Yeah i mean. We'll see i don't want to over eight collins by the other catcher right now. They just called up somebody. Today i saw. That's not mercedes. It would sevi- zavala. Who was at defense. i guy. yeah how about your mercedes. The fall fall from grace for him. I mean a great april and then nothing since then. They demoted him. it's not really a catcher. So that's why they could. You know leave active but anyway and nothing to say about call form on friday. Jackie bradley jr. yada or molina shohei ohtani amazing. Jake fraley stole two bases and very busy friday there. I'm we've talked about otani jake. Fraley is interesting to me. And i think you wrote about him and there's something. There is not a typical prospect. I thought he was a little bit older. I think he was gonna hit for much average but he's doing okay now see. I was going to continue to play. Him is twenty six years old so not a typical prospect seven. Home runs seven stolen bases and he's playing a lot and that's kind of important. Yeah good pitch selection making more contact the big jump for him that he's much more disciplined the season. That's really helping him. Not a star but also a guy is not going to hurt you in most fantasy categories unfortunate. Since i wrote about him. He hasn't been quite as great. So it's probably the fifteen mix where you're going to maximize the always on the gayle. These saturday and sunday. Eli white texas trevor story. Who's a great story. I really should be in the all star game. It's kind of a shame. He's not games denver. I don't you know baseball. Continues to do smart things harrison baiter on sunday and. I don't know if anybody had a combo. Meal on monday into that frame array is definitely did anyone else. Kyle have not okay all right. So harrison badir interests me a little bit tristan. Because he's a he's a homer he's a guy who was great speed. He can still basis a little pop against lefties but a low batting average type guy. So i would ask you this. Would you rather add jake fraley or harrison beta right now. Good question i'm to i would say fraley. I trust the skills baiters. The problem with ater is that he has swing and missing his game. And it's messy. When he is off he can really tank your batting average. Frailties probably not going to do that. I see a little more safety there. All right safety enclosures will find out next person's gonna sing that one to.

"No pressure you've got it man. Well i think now like the bars raised all podcast producers. Have to play guitar. And you need like you need like twenty five tattoos to lightly beard tattoos or play the guitar. I'm not in good shape for any of those all right. Well we have to deal with this. And i don't really want to. But dodgers pitcher is not pitching this week and he missed last week and you know. I don't have anything to say about. What trevor bauer did or did not do from fantasy baseball aspect tristan here. That's all that matters for this show bus. You can deal with the other stuff. What do you do with our in a fantasy league right now. We don't know how much time he's going to miss. It might only be one start this week. He might come back right after the all star break and he might be fine and we rank them among the top. Five starting pitchers in all fantasy. He's really only good on the field. But do you try to trade him right now. You're always in dropping him right. You probably can't trade him for value at this point because there was concern that he's going to get suspended miss more time and then again he might not be and in a week he might be in the rotation. So what does the fantasy implication to what's going on with him. A lot of these things are very unknown and uncertain because we haven't had a a history of however will deals with these things so i have no clue what the length of absence is going to be I do believe because he's got an out designation. You could put him on the injured list. I don't have a share in an espn link. So i can't tested myself. But i think the player with the o. designation can and if that's the case you just put on the sidelines and see what you know how this plays out. I don't think you can trade them. I don't think you should try to trade him. I just don't think that's a viable option for you and you know we'll we'll see how this plays out. It's a it's a disturbing troubling situation. I mean when he's on the mount. He's talented pitcher moving on now. Let's do the combo meals. Oh there was one other thing. I wanted to get to six. Oh sanchez of the marlins done for the season with shoulder surgery. Which have like harbinger a little bit like a month ago. When i was writing about this situation. I don't even know he's going to have surgery but you can safely drop him. But i wanted to ask your overall picture here. A shoulder as four more concerning than an elbow where the now. But we know how long you're out with a shoulder. Sometimes these guys are gonna come back. They don't throw his hard in a dynasty format. Here tennessee rankings. If six oh. Sanchez was before this week. Among your top. Ten young prospect dynasty starting pitchers. Is he still there. No he would probably at this point if it was a top ten classification. And that's taking a subset group of that age. He's probably now atop twenty type and with the possibility this adversely impacts the remainder of his career. As you said it's a shoulder tear. I worry that that cuts a little bit into next season as well. Especially if it's a surgery situation. Let's say top twenty just ballpark today. And and i will have Dynasty rankings for the readers in the coming week plus accent okay. I wasn't aware that i will look forward to seeing that. Because i wanna see where you rank him because you know we all loved him back in march but with a shoulder injury attaran that shoulder. I mean you don't know like the degree like corey. Kluber shoulder is shot. I mean he's thirty five or something. That's different when six sanchez kid. Who by the way was in the jt. Real trade from philadelphia and it doesn't look as now you know it was basically farro and six though for real moot though anyway. It's it's a shame because we wanted to see him pitch and help. Not only the marlins but us. He's not going to do that anymore. For the rest of the season now. It's time for you to sing about the combo meals today.

"Might be. Yeah i would hope in the situation that you don't have a glut of injured less players. I do a couple of leagues. So i understand it. If you're in that situation. I think it's okay to let him go. I would prefer to try to keep them around. If i could zach gallon of arizona's just sat down on the field after throwing a pitch. They say it's a mild hamstring strain but arizona's a mess and they don't win very much and anzac. That gown is very good but this looks like a pitcher who's not going to have a great final second half of the season to me like maybe it's because injury maybe it's because of performance or not getting wins but like i don't see how we could rank that gown as a top twenty five starting pitcher and fantasy for the final three months based on his situation. Yes and a lot of that has to do with this. Being the third injured list stint. I can't recall what the first one was coming out of. Spring training began the year on the injured that was elbow and we thought it was elbowing the first time right. I mean i thought that was the second indra. I thought that was the main one. Well i it was. One of them is what i'm saying. Yeah there was definitely one where we were worried. he could be headed for. Tommy john i do recall that i think that was the may one. I don't remember the opening day could have been the same but the fact that these are two different injuries and he's at a difficult time building his himself back up to pitching at the level he did in the previous two years. That's what bugs me. I i'm with you. I don't think you can make the case for top twenty five. Because i don't think he gets to that volume and there will be the risk of re injury. He had a hairline fracture and his forearm in late march and then the elbow is in early. May so you add all these things up and it gets to be a little bit concerning and this is very promising. Young starting pitcher. And that's why we get concerned any other injuries that i i don't want to miss anything here. I'm looking at the most added droplets because that generally tells us who is injured because people are just you know leaving a positive injury note. I mean since. We're doing injuries as i'm pleased about the friend. Male raiders at friend mill race return from the ingest and the homered and his first. Maybe not as first game back but it was one of the early game. I think it was the second. I'm trying to recall doubt the power. You know actually was activated friday. I don't think he played. It was weird. He got activated in play. I think it was weird. Heather transaction fell. What right he. Yesterday you had a home run a double and five. Rbi and he stole a base so he his name will be mentioned a little bit later when after tristan sings I didn't get to listen to thursday. Show how much singing did you do. Last thursday show because dopp guitar for my show. So i'm assuming there was lots of seeing it was like a greatest hits version or something was it was we. We actually did a three man.

"Postseason seems like it has been decided by injuries. But that's been by acute injuries that have been during the postseason right. There's been a record number of all stars to miss a postseason game whatever else. I don't think we're quite in that boat yet in in baseball at. I think it's different if we get to the playoffs and you know there are multiple teams without their stars but at this point i think there are enough guys who are expected to come back at some point. I'm actually thinking of your crosstown rivals with the white sox. You know they may be getting loose. Robert de la jimenez back closer to the postseason or for the postseason. So he think. Until those things don't come to fruition. It's hard to say that it's necessarily deciding it at an. I also just think that you know with one hundred sixty two games. I i do think cream rises to the top especially with that. It's so many games that even if you are without a star you if you're the best team even without that player that will come through. I think And that's a little bit different when you're talking about other sports shorter seasons or whatever else sir as you've been watching baseball then for this again like the pretty much exact halfway point for most teams right now which storylines have stood out to you. So far that you've just really enjoyed watching and following the most. Oh my gosh. I mean the easy. Immediate anther has to be shohei ohtani. They know his starting. Yankee stadium did not go as plan but that doesn't even matter for this conversation. As far as i'm concerned. I mean he had two runs in any way to start the next day. He is absolutely incredible. Is leading the majors in home runs. And it's really cool because you know. I think we all remember when he signed when he came over from japan. And this is what it was potentially would. It could be rightly this was kind of the best case scenario and those don't always actually happen and it took a few years. He was really good as a pitcher in twenty eighteen but he did get injured. He wasn't really able to do both at the same time. He didn't get to hit on days when he pitched than in two thousand nineteen. He didn't pitch at all twenty twenty. He tried it. Didn't quite work. And now he's one of the best offensive players in the majors and also a really good pitcher who had a bad start the other night but a really good pitcher with an amazing amazing pitch with his splitter. And i just love how into it. Everybody is i it when he pitches and when he plays when he homers. He's one of those players where athletes in all sports or commenting on it. They're tweeting about it. And that's just a whole new level and i love to see that for baseball. Yeah i think it's absolutely great for the sport. Great brand just everything in the homerun derby like all of that but do another storyline. That kinda keeps my head is. We're talking that you know you're talking about the star or one of the stars in the league and then i find it interesting storylines this year with the guys that you don't know much about because of injuries were getting called up specifically for us. They know he just got hurt. during the brewers theories that patrick wisdom he's had a huge impact on the cubs and a lot of guys have come up from triple a. they're not the shohei otani but man of have they proven valuable for teams during when they've had injuries definitely and.

And now i feel like i have a big a big delicious platter of Of games dip into very exciting. Now what else have you been playing i got. I got one real quick talked about a monster trained talked about some of those other ones. I wanna highlight rogue book which is from the creator's faira one of the dudes who did Or richard garfield wanted one of those guys that created magic the gathering were turned road book And it is a deck building game. Where boy the big evolution here. In terms of these games there is a deck building game. You have to characters that you're playing and you choose which to you're gonna take out with you at the beginning. Similar to mazar trained in that regard and each character has different decks. That do different stuff. That's when there's more like block focused. There's one that's more like attack focused whatever and you learn how to like use their skills in conjunction with each other and wasted their skills like play off each other The thing that's really interesting about rogue book is normally in these games the path that you go through on a discrete adventure is pretty linear there. Maybe like one or two different paths you can take rogue book is on an hexagonal isometric Map that you use ink to reveal so exploration of the map is also like part of the gameplay mechanics. They're like towers that you can find. That will blow. Open a wide area of the map when you finish regular battles. You'll get a little bit of ink that you can use to create a path over to another area that you see that you'd like to explore but basically in addition to and then like a lot of these times these wide open areas you'll just find like a healing potion or some goal or something like uniformly positive. So you wanna be able to explore as much of the map as you can. Because you're you're Finding things all throughout the map that are increasing your skills so in addition to dislike cards and like getting more cards as a way of like marking progression. It's also enticing you into battles by with his promise of like obstacle to reveal more the map and Become like more able to take on the challenges that lie ahead It's a very very very good. One of those Came out june seventeenth. So it's pretty new rogan's book all one word rogue book. I'll make it brief.

Mmorpg's with a free trial up through level sixty and the beloved expansion I'm turning into that guy. But i am. I missed a lot of that game. Because i'm a pretty late adopter of it to my favorite foul casey games ever our final fantasy tactics and final fantasy. Twelve both of which are set in like the same world of lease vagrant story. Also takes place in there. I've always really liked that. That stuff and there is a whole like side story. A whole expansion of fancy fourteen set in that is essentially an expansion onto the story of final fantasy tactics like it builds on the actual cannon narrative of of final tactics in a way. That is like so rad. I just finished it up yesterday and That yep it's a good ask game and get a quick playtime check from you griff on fantasy. Fourteen I've been playing it in a little half hour chunks. So it's not as it's not as terrible as you think it would be because i'm not. Here's the thing. I'm not playing it like i remember Probably like Like ten hours. Nothing big probably five or six hours I'm not. I haven't gotten hooked into like the The indie game lou grind shit like i'm just playing story missions and stuff like that which are fairly respectful of your time and yeah having a good time with it.

I think romance even saying that you saying that once was enough to turn me off the plane this game.

I love clans to scare anybody away from playing more that game but there is a little game called. Mario golf coming out at the end of this week. We're going talk about it next week. But by the time this episode comes out the game will be out so you can now say that this game you've been secretly teasing like dope has been mario golf. I think.

I am extremely into mario golf and i am really looking forward to talking about it. I clap hands.

Evil eight near replicant apart. Good not bad. You know what not a bad year for. It's been slow. I'll say but there's some really good stuff on there. Yeah for sure. I think that we should see what the our friends at home are talking about. Maybe after a quick break. Because i bet they know some stuff we don't our friends at home have also played games that we didn't tell them to play which feels like a bit trail. I guess you know what i mean like. You taste bankers agreement like the fifth best. He you know that is true that extra bit. We need and we needed their help this year. Because if you look at our list not enough indie games and that's how good small game recommendations on on the listener mail absolutely. I'll dive into these right now. The first one is from cameron monster trains. Last expansion has now pushed it into being my second most played game of all time. Otherwise the rogue light slot machine game luck be a landlord is a lot of fun and album was a charming experience. One hundred percent an evening. I am fifty percent certain. That cameron is just in because this just sounds like another excuse for justin and talk about monster trade. I must've train fucking walls. An expansion out for i'm going to go play it now.

I might grab that on switch Rogue light slot machine luckily lord. That sounds good. I haven't. I haven't checked that out with sounds good up. After we have from raincloud backbone finally released to sierra and i am in love with the combo of detective furry ingredient aesthetic has me hooked in the twist was unexpected Did you get to try this game. No tell me understand this. I've never heard of it. But google says it was released in two thousand nineteen so i think that might have been when it popped up on steam early. Let me put up really quick. You are yes steam. I was born on january. First nineteen sixty four. That's definitely true. This is like a pixel noir aesthetic and this looks like it looks awesome looks like a raccoon detective and very beautifully lit pixel city dang. I think we need to play this game. It's rated m for sexual themes strong. Lingual my shit. I am pt. Try thank you cloud Okay after this. Here is the game that i am embarrassed. That is taking me this long to play From keenan chicory a colorful tale has such a great game for me while the gameplay isn't much straight home about presentation spectacular the music from accurate an incredible the writing humorous and heartwarming.

"This is my game of the year by a pretty huge margin. At this point. I think it could be unseated by Something that hits in in in a different way Something maybe a little bit more narrative lee satisfying because god knows monster. Hunter rise didn't scratch that it since it didn't have an ending when it came out but it condenses down everything i like about monster hunter and then put it on the switch in a time. Where like that was all. I could really play. I think it came out like a days before gus was born So like there were definitely a couple of nights in the hospital where i just didn't sleep because the baby didn't sleep And it was it it. It's i like monster. Hunter is a lot. I think it's very good. I don't know that there's much else to say about it. No it's good. I know it i. I think it's probably up there for russ also so he would he would. I know he would support this decision. If you've never played a monster hunter is game and people are all the questions always like. Is this the one. Here's all say no but it's never coming. It's folks that games. Not it's you know what they say time in the market beats timing the market. And that's that's very accurate for mosser to just go ahead and played the bullet. You're not gonna time the perfect entry point for this for me. It reminds me of the dark souls games where i don't always finish them put the more. I play them the better prepared. I am for the next one and it sounds like i've heard that was like monster energy to people like. Oh yeah world was the one i tried. I kinda got into it and then they tried you know rise in something. Oh okay now. I definitely get right. Yeah sure. I think that makes a lot of sense. It took me a you to get into it. But i never thought of that before but it it makes ended. It's like kind of cumulative. Maybe you can't enjoy the first one right. It's like the assassins creative like you're just getting the basics. You're not going to have fun. But next time then basic my first one was like monster hunter four ultimate on the we you and i was like this is nothing and then the next game i played i think was one hundred and that was the one that i write or monster hundred ultimate one of the three s. games you can skip out writers. I think we all agree to daddy. I have heard that that game got a patron that is. I don't know that it addressed copywriters whips ass definitely going on this list. Are you kidding me outriders. I've played guys. No i'm gonna have to go ahead and say that it's a lot of outriders which is a very fun game. That is very stupid. Something unthinkable stupid. It's a great you know not unlike loop hero. They're basically clones of each other basically like blue bureau. It's a game where i can do something with my good brain and let my ripped tillerson brain like shoot aliens or whoever you're shooting right. I just remember it being pretty fun. I've dip back into it because it had a lot of weirdness with your your gear getting deleted and stuff. Yeah that's that's the update that i've heard is that they've they've opened up the like fun. Weapon fire hose and did the like opposite of the thing that These always online games do the opposite of holy shit l. anthem or anthem. People are having fun too much fun those guns out there. They're doing the opposite. So i'm i'm curious to dip into our writers Then we talked about grand theft auto for like one hundred years. Can i put out writers now. Well yeah in front of me can always take it off. Yeah just meaningless lists that we're using to structure this segment. Yes we can't they get off snap. I didn't like it all. But i bet you guys not not particularly. I really enjoyed it. I think more than everybody else on this show haven't back to it. Yeah and i have. I don't really have any desire to go back to it. Feel differently about returning. Which was the other game that we discussed this week. So i have not actually played bunch return because i have been waiting for. That is another game that i have on my wait till all the patches get added ryan because there is a lot of trauma around saves and being able to see your game and i figured i would wait that one hour. How about you. I had a very interesting experience with returnable. The not very interesting. But i played it a lot and got extremely frustrated. It is a very frustrating game. It is the kind of game you talking about. Like i've wasted my time. That sort of broken part of my brain. That feels like games have to be edifying in some way they can't just be fun. are not uncommon to have like an hour and a half run that just gets undone in fifteen seconds of bad luck And that is absolutely infuriating. At to a point where i was like. I can't play this anymore. i'm not doing it. I'm gonna stand up and walk away. I'm deleting the game from ips. Five cloudy deal with it but then like fast for two a month later and i'm like it was kind of fun..

"Was very this year on the top game. According to metacritic like with a bullet is a housecall is a game called the house in or ghana Which is a visual novel. It has a ninety. Eight are metacritic. And i have not heard of this title Let alone have played it. So i wish i could get down to visual novel thing though. It seems like it'd be so fun Can't get there so yes. That is a great play. A point plant And there's also like a weird kind of calculus you have to do when you make a show like ours where it's like even if one of us is very passionate about something if it's not going to be something that a lot of people like the broadest segment of the audience are gonna want to hear neponset about sometimes. It just doesn't make sense to do a whole upset about it Because we have to keep making the numbers real behind the scenes episode. Yeah jotted we gotta keep turning out the huge number. You know what was so. Does it make the list of because so far we got three is march. So i'm writing. Does it tentatively ten world plus blazers puree mixed the list. I i really enjoyed it. So the next unique individual game of the this year that we We touched on was loop hero. Yeah this one's big. This one was big for me. Love i really love me love me. I've been. I've been jonesing to get back into loop hero and i'm curious like if they have that. Seems like the kind of game that if they add a new character class or they add even some new cards to the mix. Like i will want to my snoot right back in there to see what's going on The kind of game that. I wouldn't mind starting over kind of knowing now what i know about how it works like it's that i think about that gave a lot. I think it's definitely up there for me. Yeah i've come to like. I'm trying to train myself to appreciate games like this. I used to get really mad at games that i could feel. We're wasting my time transparently and this is a game like home. My gosh it. It takes time it puts it on the bonfire lights a match. It just burns through your time and it has all the addictive hooks. But i don't know especially again coming off the pandemic and dealing with my own anxiety. I think there's part of me that's like yo that's a. That's a me problem. Not a game. Problem like yeah. I need to learn to be able to like chill out in in. Be okay with the idea of relaxing the purpose of relaxing. It's really plant. You know what. I struggle with that every to like. It's like i've been on the hunt right pretty much constantly for years but like certainly more this year as my anxiety has started to like be pretty bad for like it. Sounds a stupid to say it now but like games where like learn something right so like games where you are getting some sort of actual skill and not just like having playing a fun video game like it's not enough for me to just be like oh this is enjoyable and pleasant and i like doing it. It has to be associated with gil. So like i'm like looking for like maybe there's something where it's like i'm also gonna learn like the metric system. Some of it like he's always teach me something also playing it. Yeah that's a function of. That's a fault it. That's user air call stars. Yeah no. I just like to bunk the and watch the number go up baton so i don't know what i don't know. What the issue is i. Think loop hero. Absolutely rips ass. I i think it definitely deserves a spot. I love. that was not. What i ended up doing was doing things while i was playing loop hero and i think that that's the way it's okay to engage with it in that way. So that's why. I feel like it doesn't necessarily waste your waist. You're too. That's why i actually was going to say Is that it. I feel like it is designed to allow for that sort of approach. Like if you wanna go into another tab and watch videos about woodworking and then you're like oh fuck was playing loop hero. I'm dan cow star of it does not. It does not wanna penalize that right after loop hero. Now you're going to have to help me with this implant. Because i did not take to. It takes two. I neither played this game nor liz a listen. I didn't listen to. The app is really busy busy. Don't really not a part. Wow wow a lot of people love this game. I think so again the way this works it is a co-op exclusive. You play a married couple. Who hates each other And you have to learn to love again so that your child can apparently grew up in a home that his atomic correct i say before you get into are just want to say as an outside observer seems like this is a weirdly divisive one like the most games are lot anymore. It seems that we kind of have a consensus for like. It's pretty good but it's not great. This feels like has some very vocal like critics and proponents. I think it all boils down to how much of a stomach have for the story. Like i think gameplay itself is beautiful. The visuals are very striking. It has a lot of cool stuff. You're itty-bitty bitty and you're going through kind of honey. I shrunk the kids type backyard and house and for the most part moves at a at a good clip and the puzzles are pretty fun there. A few moments. That are like oh. They've really figured out something. New with co op. And i think any time you do something like that goes a long way towards make people who want more co op games to get super hyped. But i find the story like truly awful like i find it a profoundly. Toxic experience is awful. I don't know necessarily is awful in the sense of like the the narrative doesn't function or is it. Sounds like you feel like the lessons. That's divining like pretty ribbons. Will i think a few different things on a purely does it make sense. In like structure pretty solid competition confidently ridden right but in terms of what it is saying about marriage and family. i find. It doesn't work in terms of how it is setting up like relationships between people. I don't think it works. I'm truly annoying Book of love. Who i think i have come to understand why this character characters in the game. Which is you would hate the characters you're playing. You would truly despised him if there was not something even more annoying than by putting this character there. You're like cool like we can all agree that that guy's sucks even more and that will that will bring us together like that is how we will find. We will find love again. I also just the tone is so all over. The place sometimes feels like a game flight. Five year olds other times. You were brutally murdering a toy while it begs fritz life. I love that show. It's wild it one of those games like honestly especially if it is on game passer player. Whatever yeah you should play it. Let's play it because it just. It is one of those games. Like i just can't believe it exists. And i think i honestly i probably would have even liked it better if i went into it just knowing like hey this story. You're just ignore it. You know if the cut scenes just play this to see all the absolutely bonkers stuff that happens. I think it would be really not really.
