Los Angeles Dodgers' Trevor Bauer Subject of MLB Inspection for Suspicious Baseballs
"Dodgers big. Dad's we talked about. We were talking about the dodger. We're talking about the trevor bauer situation as someone was trying to pour cold water on the dodgers situation where ken rosenthal. The athletic was reporting that multiple suspicious baseball's from the dodgers starting pitcher trevor. Bauer were sent to major league baseball for inspection to which bauer went to social media to clear that. Hey not just me because if you single one person out it makes it sound like they're guilty. That is the way most people think but it is a a wide range of pitchers whose balls have been collected to see what's on the balls to inspect the balls. And the dodgers took exception to it and i get it now. Trevor responded to that today. Here's what drivers at since. It's only illegal for pitchers to have foreign substance on their person their body whatever. It's not illegal for a catcher to have it on his shin guards or his chest protector as we've seen it's not illegal for basement having on his glove or a center fielder to have it on his gloves. So far as i am aware potentially rule change. There's some language. But as far as i know the rules baseball it is legal for those players to have stuff on their gloves. So my question is if i threw a pitch and it gets thrown out and tested and then have the foreign substance on. How do they know that. It came from me and not from the catcher's glove or from the third basements glove or nfl ball. What does that happen to hit the bat. The handle of a bet where a hitter has pine tar or whatever other substance he wants which is completely legal so long as it doesn't go too far up that how are they gonna tell that that was knee and fault me for using four in substance when that could have come from any host of other places that are legal.

Twitter For List Building With Madalyn Sklar
"One of the things that i saw of is interesting about twitter is would you say it's the place where people really build a personal brand stronger than a business brand so like we are robin kennedy on there as opposed to anything else How does that work. Yeah you can definitely build a very large personal brand on twitter. So it's a level playing field so it allows you to be able to connect with people in in showcase yourself who you are what you do with everyone else on there. So everybody's kind of the same when they're starting at listen. We all started zero when we're on twitter and any other social networks so it's what you do from there to build up. That's really important. What i really love about twitter as well is. It's the fastest moving. Which means the deepest connections can be made fastest. Because it's a fast food. It's not like facebook. You put a thing up and then at some point in the next three weeks someone see your post and will get involved in the conversation. The comments onto an the reply reply reply reply. It's the closest thing to sms text messaging but with otherwise unreachable people which is really awesome so we get people on twitter. And that's lovely then. What we really want to do is move them from twitter to email platform. Because there's a place for being discovered and starring relationships like on onto it and then we want to move over to to all. We can do some deep nurturing nurturing so why some some of the strategies that we can be using an definitely want to know some of the mistakes that people make tried to shift people across as well but how do we even be game thinking about shifting people from twitter to our email list. Well greg question first and foremost you've got to get people to know like and trust you. Nobody's going to pay attention to you. Do anything that you say like. Hey come join my email is. Here's a lead magnet here something great. They're not gonna care if they don't get to know you firs- they like you they see you're likable and trust that you're not going to spam them right so you've got to work on relationship building. I and you know we all know the power of twitter chats as an amazing way to do that right just spinning some time connecting with people getting to know them and sharing your expertise and next thing you know. They're following you and they see hey. This person has a free pdf. I could sign up for and now you're getting them into your email. Listen starting that funnel. So it's really important to spend time nurturing community on twitter. You got you got. You can't just post you can't make it a one way street too. Many people too many brands too many of everyone is out there. Just me me me. Let me just post my stuff and not do anything else. You have to be on there and listen and jump into conversations and talk to people. It's incredibly important okay. Let's talk about jumping into conversations. The think will also go along the idea of and talk about twitter chats and that really means and how how we can take advantage of them later. But how do you like. Someone's having a conversation. You can see this a better crack going on between some people. How do you jump in now without being that so of dickhead. The party just like nobody likes just right then. Tell us what's going on. We don't want to be that drunken buffoon how do we. How do we not be that person yet. Still insert ourselves conversations. Well you can go in and ask a question just kind of slowly immerse yourself into it and not just like hey here i am coming out with me or add value to whatever. The conversation is if you go in and add value. That's really the best thing you can do. But before you do that. I do a quick audit of your twitter account. Make sure you're always good. Make sure you have a great photo a headshot something so that because what happens is once you start jumping in and doing this regularly. The first thing someone's going to do is go. Look at your profile. They're going to be who madeleine. Sklar what is she talking about. Why should i check her out. Why should i follow her. So you really need to have a great profile so it's really best to spin a little time on that. I just do a quick audit. Make sure everything looks good. Make sure you got your dot com if you gotta lead magnet get like a bit link and put that in your bio you know. Hey here's my my free whatever. Xyz and then the link. There's this misconception that you can't put multiple links in your twitter bio and you can you don't want to clutter it up with too many links but you definitely want here. Dot com in the space for the dot com but in your bio is a great strategy to put a small short-leg to yearly maintenance somewhere. If you you investigated using something linked tree or one of the of the plethora of programs for doing that or do you just like a couple of things that go directly to that results than you know really depends on what you're if you've got a lot of resources i think link tree is great for that and is definitely something that can be worth dealing I personally prefer doing billy link when i have some kind of special lead magnet and of even gone a step above that i have a custom. Bit link That you can do. Mine is since my last name is sklar is clearly so sklar dot l. y. And they can be slashed. Whatever i want to be which is super cool. I learned about it years ago. When jay baer was on my twitter smarter podcasts and he was talking about custom. Billy links which is something nobody talks about. Everybody knows about billy to get shorten links. Nobody talks about. Hey you can go. purchase You know something dot l. y. And and jay baer was like you should get your last name. You should be like scholarly. That would be so cool so i ended up doing it and it's been really unique so i use that quite a bit flip. Love licensed probably candidate think belong actually will url honest but we definitely. We've definitely thought about that. So i love that so so we can go in these conversations that we see happening. I suppose the first thing to do is we give some kind of volley that might be saying. Oh he not disagreeing with people and being offensive and stop but we want be in there going. I've done it this way. Add to the conversation. Don't take away from me really important. Just standard be nice stuff People check out your profile. Boston really great okay. A great way again people from a profile now that they're on your profile over lead magnet is bit links short links delete mandates great stuff. Now you mentioned this wonderful thing about until about a year and a half ago. I had never heard of a twitter chat or a tweet chat or a tweet. Our as many names for these things in case anybody's thinking what the hell are you talking about doing this. So of synopsis of what one of these things is absolutely so twitter. Chat is a great way twitter to bring like minded people together so for instance. I host the twitter smarter twitter so every thursday afternoon at one o'clock eastern whole bunch of us just converge on twitter for one hour it revolves around the hashtag. You just gotta make sure you pull up that hashtag and you'll see all the tweets around the hashtag and it just connects you really cool people in there so many twitter chats out there. There's so many different topics and interests so I have found it to be hands down the best way to connect with people on. Twitter is great for relationship building. I've met so many amazing people from this. I met you guys from there So yeah twitter chats is definitely the way to go. I recommend finding some that look interesting. Check them out and become a regular on some of these and try to commit a few hours each week. They're typically one hour away. Each week is typical twitter chat. Yeah most of all like a weekly event. They're like well. I know that every thursday. There's the one. I know that we have our own. Which is email our hashtag. Email every every thursday three. Pm eastern eight pm uk. Time for us. I'm on their throwing questions at people and they're really good. So if if somebody wants to participate in this one of these twitter hours or email in one of these twitter chats what's the best way they can leverage that to build their email list without being obnoxious person in the room saying hey buy from me. How can we participate in those things with and still be cool. Yes it'll be effective such a great question so back to your twitter profile. Be absolutely sure you've got some kind of lead magnet available. Make it really easy for people when they go to your profile to see it. Another strategy is to have a pen. Tweeden and penn tweets great feature on twitter. We can take any tweet. You have out there. And in the settings you can click to pin it stays at the top so someone comes your profile and they they're looking at your bio. They're looking at your lovely pitcher. The very first tweet is going to be. That pen tweeted to your most recent so make sure that tweet is something that kit. They could easily sign up for your manage and get them into your funnel. So when you're on a twitter chat and you're conversing with people and they go look at your profile. They'll easily see all that information. But what you wanna do on the twitter chat is you wanna get on their provide value. You don't want to get on there. They hey sign up for my free thing you wanna get on there and just answer the questions that are being discussed with your take on show that you have expertise and then engage with the guests engage with the host of the
Be Less Apologetic With Kimberly Blackwell
"Kim welcome to to professional troublemaker. Oh my god. It's also thrilled to be here. This is a long time coming long time coming too long to low. Always start off by asking my guess. What did you wanna be when you were growing up. fun fact. I actually wanted to be a sports medicine doctor really so i have a passion for sports. Okay and really for me. was very curious about medicine. And actually my undergraduate degree i went to syracuse made and so everything by way of my preparation was to go to medical school so sports medicine. So how old were you when you realize that. That's something that you wanted to be. So here's what i'll tell you. I think i feel like. I thought i wanted to be a doctor. Probably as early as junior high. Not quite as young as elementary. But i think i'd junior high. I kinda develop that curiosity around medicine and then i played sports in high school so i played volleyball and basketball when i got to syracuse. They ask them okay so listen. This had a scholarship for basketball to yale. Oh did not go to your obviously to this day. My father does not let me live that down. Okay i'm gonna bring you way back because this is fascinating okay. So five year old. kim. How was she. Okay let's back that up okay. So kim started school at three years. Old ooh okay. And so for. Kim went to montessori school. I started early. Kim was also advanced a great. So i tell folks. Nothing i do or have done has ever been conventional started school early advanced. The great graduated fairly young. I pledged in my teens. Alpha kappa alpha. Oh yeah it's like so but going back to your question. I think five year old cam actually still has a lot of the characteristics of forty something year old count. I think i always was a people person. Okay i think i was always operating from a position of excellence. I put pressure on myself. And i remember this even as a child i wanted to beat you in everything that we play like kick ball. I want to win. Like and i want to win. Not by you know two kicks but by ten So i was very competitive. i think as I looked to areas sort of where i tried to kind of position myself. As a team player. I think even the end and having played soccer as a toddler to montessori school so i was kinda raised in that environment of like you know we have. We didn't sit desk with chairs we were taught to be. Free are thinking won'- the room with blocks and all that good stuff. We call it our teachers by their first name. Gianna oh no i'm burn. No i will never forget him. John berno and it was. It was really cool. My my parents like you know my mother's educator. So you know grew up. In the fact where my mother started as a schoolteacher and so you know we will come home to kids. We didn't know sitting in a diner on the table because my mother really kind of operated like you know it takes a village and though our who is it you know but i think i develop that sense of community and responsibility to community by saying my mother embodied that early age and so she was an educator teacher there became an administrator retired as the superintendent on my father was in public service I grew up where he had been on the council city council but even before that school board So we would have kids. We were sasha malia without knowing way bag win do on parades my were you oldest oldest of three. I'm the oldest. Three pitchers like my dad was the mayor you know. And so they're big plaques with you know his name and we're sitting on his lap and council chamber. My dad is pretty well traveled. He you know has served as an ambassador. Un ambassador he served as undersecretary hoods all. That's where i got a lot of my service responsibilities.
MLB will use experimental rule changes in 2021 minor-league season
"So think if. Somebody's baseball ideas. Major league baseball spring training. Well do it now. Almost into it's not quite as third weekend but yeah what they're doing is major league. Baseball's got every level of minor league baseball trying out rules. New rule changes that if they go well they might consider implementing it the major league level. So it's basically test time. Experimental rule changes so. Let's go through a few of them. Yes all of it though. Just just to preface it. Steve the backstory hairstyle. Nice is they want more balls in play. Okay how can they. How can they get more ball. That that's what i read today right and it's also increase the pace of play. That's always something that every league is concerned with given they're trying to attract the youth and the youth probably has less attention span than any generation in history but Let's go through some of the minor league ball rule changes and a couple in particular that we wanna talk about. But we'll go through them. Triple a ball. Which is where the ottawa. Lynx us to play you can have larger bases. They'll be eighteen square inches instead of the usual fifteen and so that means your distance between basis is a little shorter three inches this just in and they're hoping to increase stolen bases with that aa ball. They're going to ban extreme defensive shifts. The deal is you have to have at least four defenders on the infield and they have to be all of them with two feet on the infield dirt enable inaba step off. Rule pitchers are going to be cold for a balk of they. Don't completely disengage from the rubber before throwing to a base and that's designed to increase stolen bases as well you've also got an ball pitchers limited to pick off attempts per plate appearance and if the pitcher tries for a third pick off and the runner is safe. He'll be charged with a bach. Because they we all agree that that thr- over the first base after a while it's pretty damn tedious but the two changes that will be happening in low able will be automatic strike zone systems previously used in the atlantic league in the fall league and the league is also set to use additional timers to increase the pace of play as well including between the delivery pitches and those two big. Those two things could be really big if they work in minor league ball and eventually end up in major league. Paul and those to me are the two biggest ones to me. That's like is a massive change. Stephen baseball if you have a consistent computerized strike zone be no. You know what i mean. No doubt about it. I watch games last year. Where you know even the announcers right you. You'll see a game where where the party out noise calling that low on. You know what he's calling it a strike he's calling it a strike that low on but then i saw them where it was. Just so willy. Nilly you know what this guy was calling and batters get it. You know you're just you're strikes on a little bit these calling the low on us highway one. But i've seen them where it's just knows what they're doing and its way out of the frame that they put up there now. That's a huge change. That'll make a big difference a bit. That'll nothing with the speed of play. But you know. I think it's the most significant thing ever. Yeah yeah. Baseball needs to keep evolving. All sports. Do though
MLB Spring training: Which Players Have A Shot At Making the Giants' Team?
"One guy that stands out to me and we'll get to Luciano. We've talked so much about him and how exciting and tantalizing he is. But we're talking bullpen, arms and guys who have a legitimate shot to make this team and one of the parting gifts from Bobby Evans. It seems like one of these guys. Camilo dove all he's been in the system time now did we saw him against the Dodgers the other night? He is exciting, and I think is you put out carry the best hair in the Giants bullpen right now. Oh, yeah, he he does have the best care because last year they had a guy Rodolfo Martinez, who was a Johnny Cueto look like just with better dreadlocks than Johnny Cueto. If you can imagine that this year, they've got Camilo Jovel who does not have better dreadlocks. But he has died his dreadlocks, so they're like orangish Red, And I'm hoping that by the regular season he'll have in his Giants Orange, because could you imagine that coming out of the bullpen? Got weapon 97 98 with a cutter and the breaking off a nasty slider. And then all of a sudden he's got the closer like hair, Camilo Devil and you make a great point. He is a parting gift from Bobby Evans. And this is something that we should talk about. I should write about eventually is all the parting gifts from Bobby Evans because you're starting to see the fruit of the Giants International. Sign me focus coming through the system. Marco Luciano, a Bobby Evans guy, Alexander Canario, Bobby Evans Guy. Curving Castro, a Bobby Evans guy. And so the Giants are starting to see this focus that we saw in the like post 2014 2015 World Series era where they went down to the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and other Latin American countries and sign some dudes and you're seeing that those dudes who they got when they were 16 17 years old are coming through this farm system and are going to be ready to contribute and so The village of all immediately popped out the other night against the Dodgers Cubs, But there's several other players, several other young players. Several other young pitchers who have really stood out so far. Well in another one is from the left side. Jake long this kid is from Sacramento. I think you would the Sac state or he's like up from the Northern California area. So he said. It was so funny. The quote I saw from him the other day was Buster Posey called him over to throw a bullpen and he called him by his name, and he was all stoked that Buster newest name because he's of that age group beauties like you and I. If Buster called us over, he'd be like, dude, that's Buster Posey calling my name so Him from the left side. You know, I hate to do the com thing, but I'm getting I'm getting Billy Wagner Vibes. Dude, What do you think? Billy Wagner vibes? That's that's fascinating. And so the reason I say that is because the jobs are actually building this guy up is a starter there. They're thinking of him a 97 from the left side, a guy with a hammer curveball and a good change up there looking at him as someone who could actually be in the rotation. And so when can't first started? Gabe Kapler traffic trump Buster Posey. They all said. Hey, pay some attention to this Sam Long guy. He's got something to him. And we're thinking, okay, This is just, you know, a guy who threw two good bullpens. You never know that happens every spring. He's probably a double A or maybe a triple a arm who could help them out of the bullpen Eventually. Then all of a sudden, he appears in the Cactus League opener against the Angels, and he has got major league stuff. No question in my mind after seeing him. Three pitches in I turn to Mark Sanchez in the press box. I go. I have seen enough. This guy can help the Giants right now, and I think that in keeping him as a starter and sending him down to triple A or double a to open up the season, you're potentially talking about someone copes who could somehow morphed his way into the Giants top pitching prospect and maybe beat Sean Jelly or Tristen back or some things other guys. The chance to excited about to the major league level. And so it's really fasting to see Sam Long come out of the bullpen because you're juxtaposing that with guys like Camilo, Javelin Caribbean Castro, who is another guy, Bobby Evan, signed who just has that hammer curve coming out of the bullpen 97. Very little mite early experience. But there are the pieces in place and you can correct me if I'm wrong. If you've seen anything differently, the first three or four days of spring training their pieces in place for the Giants to have one of the most exciting bullpens and Major league baseball and potentially one of the best is far as electricity goes like with stuff
Antone brings heat in push for Cincinnati Reds' rotation
"Reds played tonight and three hours against the kansas city. Royals perhaps not with these same amount of excitement as the night before her. Green and nikola delo pitched tj anton in relief last night against the dodgers and again that ended with a four four tie. I will admit to you. I get the purpose behind the rule that a team on defense can roll the inning over and basically ended prematurely as a fan. That's not much fun. Tony larussa has said as much. Tony larussa and i are on the same page about anything. That's saying something but above and beyond the outcome of the game which obviously doesn't matter. Tj antone pitch last night and he was phenomenal two innings. His fastball was ninety. Seven ninety eight ninety nine killer slider filthy curve five strikeouts two innings gave up. Just a hit. This is a guy who was a bit of a revelation. Last year made his major league debut with the reds early in the season started. Four games came in and relief and nine others and did a really really nice job. Here's david bell on what he liked from. Tj last night looks very lockton. Yeah maybe could've been the best basketball. I've seen include. Let's santa law so good last year. But his fastball of really good is everyone which means it just locked in a totally kind of grown accustomed to tj being very focused and determined so even those beverly in the spring doesn't surprise me at perching david bell last night talking about t j anto. I don't wanna make too much out of one. Spring training outing the didn't count. There is a lot of foolishness and doing that. But he is a part of a mix of guys who will ultimately answer one of the critical questions about the reds this spring. Which is who's gonna make up the back into the rotation right and even if he doesn't end up as a starter he could be a valuable member of a bullpen. that said goodbye to two quality. Relievers this offseason and rice laziest and archie bradley. But what role will tj antone bien after a good two thousand twenty. Here he is and what role he would like to be. Yeah i wanna start but wherever those. Tv's all right. Good short concise. It's the right answer. You don't get the sense just listening to that that he's going to be upset if he's not a starting pitcher but that is what he's been for most of his professional career one hundred and eleven appearances in the minor leagues one hundred and nine as a starter with different levels of success. I don't think there was anything about just looking. At his minor league statistical profile that would have suggested that he would emerge last. Year is valuable arm but he was. Era to eighty again pitched started four games when needed member wade. Miley had to miss some time. Sonny gray mr starr disc- he came out of the bullpen. Nine times and did a nice job. He'd really did a nice job last year. So now the question is does he factor into the mix a little bit more in the race to be the last starter.
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone on leave while recovering from pacemaker surgery
"Got word about our old friend. Aaron boone yesterday that he had surgery to get a pacemaker. He had Boyne through some tasks and he said in a statement that he said mild symptoms of lightheadedness low energy and shortness of breath. Over the last six to eight weeks I texted him yesterday afternoon and he texted back. I'm about ready to go in feeling good and i exchanged sex again with him this morning. and It seems like he absolutely feeling better. It doesn't sound like he's going to be gone for very long from the yankees dugout with so many advances in heart treatment and boonie knows more about that than anybody because course he had open heart surgery a little bit more than a decade ago.

What was going on with today's science which is so incredibly impressive that you know this is now patient situation and you can be up and running within twenty four to forty eight hours and back to normal and and you know just the way he communicated with me. Put me at ease that you know. If he's good. You know i felt my takeaway was if he's really in a good place in a good place because all i care about his him or yankees pitcher corey kluber. Yeah i think obviously you know ever wants to hear anything like that. You made a video kind of reassuring everybody That he felt confident.

Hit in the head a few times and hit once in the face by Dock Ellis and I'm just wondering after something like that. How do you stand in ever again, sixty feet away from a guy that can throw a fastball. Doesn't it affects one out to the ballpark. After I got hit. In the head one interface by dock Ellis. And around one o'clock because I was I sat out two days. And I went out to the ballpark. The next day would have been swollen face and almost a close because I was going to play that night and I had a batting practice pitcher a guy by the name Jimmy Frye who was a manager for the cubs throw at me. In batting practice and I hit for about forty five minutes on got over that is another time in Texas a guy hit me in the head by the name of Mike Poll. LEFT-HANDER FOR CLEVELAND. I played against him in college. He hit me in college and we got together in the pros. I hit home run off him in Cleveland and in about four or five years later he was pitching for Texas And the I came up to the plate and there were two guys on. The catcher was a kid named Kenny Suarez who was about five foot seven in the empire was bill. Heller. And I got into the batter's box in the first pitch that guy through to me was up in. And I turned around and Ken Suarez and I said I'm not going to be able to get to the PITCHER's mound. But if he hits me, I'm going to rip your face mask off in. Whoop you right here at home plate. He called time and went to the PITCHER's mound. And he looked at Empire on looked at me and he went to the pitcher's mound and said something to Mike Paul and the next four pitches next three pitchers over in the right-hand hitters about. Walk. Like that? Fight you I think if I'd been catching you and I would have been rolling roll dirty. Oh. Yeah.

We're remembering hall of fame pitcher Bob Gibson who died last week at the age of eighty four we're listening to the interview recorded with Gibson and fellow hall of Famer Reggie Jackson in two thousand nine about their book which explored the confrontation between hitters and pitchers. In the game it's called sixty feet six inches. Reggie Jackson have to ask you one thing that I've always wanted to ask a great hibbert and that is. When a pitcher releases the ball, it's on top of you. So quickly and you have a much better chance if you can tell whether it's a fastball or a slider or a curve. Can you actually see the rotation of the ball and tell what kind of pitch it is. they if you can't see the rotation and tell if it's A fastball then you have to be able to tell whether that fast ball is a two seamer or for seamer. You have to be able to recognize if it's a slider curb all. You have to be able to recognize if as a change up or a split. Finger. And if you can't, you're not GONNA be a major league player. You're not being going to be a good player any other pair that's playing every day that's hitting above two, seventy five or to sixty. He can see what's coming when it leaves the pitchers Anton. In that split second you can you can pick up the relations you better you better than a guy that would a slider Bob you'd see a dot you'd see a dot in the ball and you wouldn't get. You'd see that dot. That dot got big and you saw to clear it was a bad slider and it was going to leave the ballpark when he swung at it, you saw what do you mean by the dot? Just the spin of the baseball with a slider, the the the rotations in the seems form a dot a red. Dot? On the ball as as it comes at you when it's a real good slatter, the guys will say boys tight. It's electric. If it got sloppy, the DOT got big and then it became a hangar became a bad fastball. and Bob gets and I have to ask you about one more moment I don't remember the year but you always talked about how Roberto Clementi was was the kind of player that would that would just leave out in lunge at pitches from him wherever and he wants hit a line drive at you that hit you so hard it broke your leg. Yes that happened and you pitched for three more batters before you left I pitched it to more anyway and I I used to get clemency out fairly easily and it was because of him jumping and leaping out at the ball away and I used to throw the first pitch insight knocking down I may knock him down on purpose. Didn't hit him I. Don't think I ever hit him but it would make him so mad that he would swing at everything and then the next pitches I wouldn't even throw strike. Track him out. I'd get him out. He hit ground balls and this one time in particular was in one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty seven is right before the All star break and I got a ball up in a way you could get committee out if down way down away and they tell you pitch guys low and away in high and tight. And that means pitcher up and Lauren away, and if you got up in a way to Clementi he hit the ball to right fill like a left handed pull hitter I mean he just really smashed it and so I got the ball up a little bit but it wasn't wasn't a letter high. It was about belt high and he hit a line drive. And Bach, time my my right leg hit the ground. I I wasn't able to get my glove down quick enough and the line drive hit me right on the ankle broke by Fibula. I I didn't know it was broken I just knew it hurt a lot and so our trainer came out back in those days they would. They would spray his Co. ride on your leg and it would freeze it and you wouldn't feel anything in our trainer freeze it he put that stuff on it and I said, he says how you feel well, I felt fine I couldn't fill it. And so they I through a couple of pitchers and I said yeah, it's okay. They went back away and started pitching. And I ended up getting three and two DON Clendenin. And I knew he was going to look for Fast Ball. So I was going to put a little bit extra on it and I I put a lot of weight on that bone and it popped snapped in half. And it was really kind of scary. I looked behind me because I thought somebody walked up and hit me with a stick but I fell over I passed out next thing everybody was looking at my face but I didn't know it was broken I. Just thought I'd gotten a little bruise on it and Today that would never happen. You get hit like that and they take the they take a little better care of you. So that's how you get. Bob Gibson out of a game. Game that. Day. We'll Gibson Reggie Jackson. Thanks so much. It's been fun. Okay, my friend. Thanks for having. US. About. Thanks a lot.

"From whyy in Philadelphia, this is fresh air I'm Dave Davies and for Terry. Gross today we remember one of baseball's most intimidating pitchers Bob Gibson who dominated hitters from the mound for the Saint Louis Cardinals in the nineteen sixties and seventies he led the cardinals to two world series titles and still holds the record for the most strikeouts seventeen and a world series game. Some died last week at the age of eighty four. Well, listen to Terry's nineteen, ninety, four interview with him when he just published his memoir and we'll hear him talk about the classic confrontation between the guy at the plate and the one on the mound in our two thousand nine interview with him and hall of fame. Slugger Reggie Jackson also, Justin Chang reviews to new documentaries one about the trump administration's handling of the pandemic, another about the impact of incarceration on one family. Last week baseball lost one of its most memorable players. About all we can throw that ball mighty hard. And Win. That's broadcaster Harry Carey describing Bob Gibson who dominated hitters for the Saint Louis Cardinals in the nineteen sixties and seventies with a blazing fastball and an intimidating glare. He died last Friday at the age of eighty four from pancreatic cancer. Gives them played in different era when pitchers routinely through complete games and pitching inside even knocking batters down was just part of the game. He played all seventeen seasons of his career in Saint Louis and accomplished remarkable things. He was an eight time. All Star Most Valuable Player of the world series twice, and he still holds the record for the most strikeouts in a world series game seventeen against the Detroit Tigers in nineteen sixty eight he also hit twenty six lifetime home runs to in the world series. Goodson wasn't friendly to opposing players or the media but the way he saw it, his job was winning games not making friends. We're going to listen to parts of to fresh air interviews with Gibson. In one, he sat down with Hall of fame outfielder Reggie Jackson in two thousand nine to talk about the confrontation between hitters and pitchers. But I will hear part of his conversation with Terry, gross recorded in nineteen ninety four when he published a memoir stranger to the Game Terry asked him why he didn't like letting his catcher's call the pitchy with throw. I felt if you throw a pitch. That you don't WanNa Pitch. You not going to have your heart in it and he's not going to be good and I'll tell you when that happened I. Remember back when I was very, very young and you do have to pay attention to what other people think about the league in the hitters when you don't know them yourself. Carlson Wasowski was a catcher for the cardinals and he and I had a disagreement about what pitch to throw to a hitter and I was young and he was experiencing and I would shake him off and he finally called time out and he came out to the mound to tell me that he wanted me to throw a certain pitch when he went back. Got Down and I threw a pitch guy hit a home run and from that point on I said I'll never do it again. That's not to say that you don't take orders are you don't follow what the catcher wants you to do but if you don't do it then I say, don't do it. Now Tim McArthur was a catcher for many years. How did he feel about that? Well. He felt the same way. You never throw a pitch that you don't want to throw and usually a catch. Macara had his head his head in the game so much and he he was so smart about what he was doing back there that I didn't shake him off that often anyway when I did shake, it was usually to confuse the hitter. You used to use the brushback pitch. No were there times when you? Intentionally, try to hit a better. Oh, sure and usually that was. retaliation we had a couple of guys Lou Brock, Curt Flood Hulan Havi. Are they got hit constantly they were very fast they get on a bases and they just drove drove guys, nuts. So they did get hit and whenever one of my guys got hit when I was pitching, I would just return the favor. You hit Duke Snider wants and broke his elbow or himself he himself was. Excellent. Well. Duke Snider was a pull hitter Deadpool hitter and he liked the ball inside his left hand hitter and when we first moved out to the Coliseum. Nicole. Simms right phil fence was a long way away but the left field fence was only two hundred and fifty feet away and Duke Snider did not hit the ball left Phil first time I faced him hit a home run over that little fence out there. which was fine. You know, okay y'all have to start pitching him a little differently I pitched him away a little farther about three or four answers outside and he he reached out and hit the ball. It would have been a home run but they went file and that was the second time up while the next pitch I throw him was inside. Here we go with this pitch that I'm telling you keeps the Guy Leeann out. Well, he went back out there thinking that the ball was going to be outside and it hit him elbow broke his elbow. How did you feel in that? Heaven? Oh. It was his fault. It was mine and in fact I went over to talk to him after the game and he told me, he says, he says, I was leaning out there and I shouldn't have been doing it. Did. You ever get hit while you bet sure I get hit lot. was that retribution against your pitching? Absolutely you know that's The way the game was played boy. So every time you intentionally hit a better did you figure well, that means I'm going to get hit. We're making it sound like a lot of times which. Can Happen. Then right see you got a guy back there called umpire and he usually stops all of this when somebody gets hit on my team. And I go back out there and hit somebody in that team the empire we'll call timeout he says, okay guys that's enough and usually that is enough and it stops right. You don't spend all game thrown at each other right? This tell me more about what your strategy was like when you were on the mound. All right we would go into town, for instance, going in Philadelphia and we have a three game series the first game of each series you have a. We have a report from the scouts and we would go over each individual hitter. We knew exactly how the? Pitch them. How to play defense against them and so what you would do, you would go over it. and refresh your memory on what to do. So that's not to say that you would pitch like that all the time. But if you got into a situation where this guy could beat you with a base hit or home run or what have you then you went to your strategy, you went to those scouting reports in pretty much. If you stayed there, you'd get the guy out. But if you were continually pitching a guy according to that he was going, he would most of those hitters are good enough to adjust to that. So you you try not to pitch them like that all the time. I think you were the first black athlete to get a scholarship to the college that you went to, and you got a university scholarship in basketball and baseball no. Was a basketball scholarship. I just happened to play baseball during the summer. Yeah. Did you think that you would go into basketball at that time? I thought I was going to be a basketball player. More. So than baseball player, but when I got to be a senior. I thought that maybe and it didn't seem like it was interested that much in. From the professional ranks. I thought maybe I would probably.

"They have to consume where there's lot less ants in the pitcher cobbling because there's less than the larger environment. So that's the also looked looking at all other insect orders pool because they're so few relative to the ants but the, but there was the slight increase however in the amount of non ant spray going up mountain still near the numbers are so much found the answer they're still getting a lot less spray but this had me thinking about possible local adaptation that that might be happening. So this seems to be a species that largely relies on ants on open question whether they're actively targeting ends by let's say that air features of their pitcher are meant to draw an answer of whether are lower elevations. It would be beneficial for them to change their attractive properties on at higher elevations so that they're more attractive to non-answer. They have properties that make them more efficient at catching, non and such as these flying insects, via Isan, wasps and Laptop Dra. Or higher elevation right so that that's that's that's that's hypothesis at this point. Conjecture. But yeah, it'd be interesting seeing whether there's any sort of pheno that corresponds to shifting their break after strategy. As they moved higher elevations. Yeah. That would be really cool to start poking around in because it makes sense I mean, here's an organism that again, like you said, it's it's living a lot of different places and as you grow up mountains, things change pretty drastically and I'm guessing it's very true in the tropics where that elevation makes a huge difference in. So the way that that can shave letters. The shaping of an organism just like you said in its day to day even beyond before, you can get to the whole evolutionary context of these these ecological interactions and how that might shape what's available pre capture is a big part of how they're making their living. So it makes sense that there might be some sort of driving force there that could differ that's. Awesome to think about. It is still bacillus when we speak of the species or. So. So this this study. radio. This was where I did in the Philippines on Mindanao on an it's an entities, Mindanao Owens's nice. Just as the name species endemic to Mindanao. This is not one of the ones that briefly mentioned that are endemic to single peak ser though I did work on a single peak. Tourism relatively easy to access as far as Mindanao goes which is. One one of those places where a lot. With a lot of recent species discoveries due to increasing access to other parts of the island. But I mentioned that about how mcgeechan. because. It's such a cool. It's now. A UNESCO. World Heritage Site actually has. Not One, but three endemic site endemic nepenthes species on it. Yeah independece hummy gates and dances view named after the mountain, and then also microflora Altana or endemic to that one mountain. who I work more comes beaches. Yes you find. You need your data. Yeah, and then couching that though in all of the work that you're doing, you know kind of going back to what we talked about earlier a little bit in terms of what they're doing with their pitchers y you know they could be all living there in Sim Patrie but be distinct species even though you see rampant hybridization among the penalties when humans get involved mean, there's so much to unpack with this group I mean, it is such an incredible system to be studying in Enron just from obviously you are really good at observing things and kind of using cues from being you know someone that being out in nature sort of that natural history observation style to inform your science than. When you're looking at these plans, especially minuets which covers a pretty vast gradient do like even anecdotally seed any indication like maybe the ones that higher elevation put more upper pitchers up in the canopy then lower pitchers that are on the ground I mean is there any indication or anything in your mind right now that stands out there could be saying they have different strategies, different places because of some of these gradients that you mentioned. Yes actually I'm yet you. So you mentioned the Pitcher Morrison that actually is. that. That was a big difference at the higher elevations I saw less of the lower pitcher morton actually while up there I remember saying, Oh haven't seen. You know the other pitcher more in a while really have two fight this one on them going up in scoping. So who knows, yeah, we had really talked about that morphological done more is yet. A realize. So her anyone that doesn't know that each each species. Two types of edges the lower. Which comes from vm Basil Rosettes and. Climbing finance are Wednesday reached the climbing based on there's a different morphology called Upper Pitcher, which is normally more streamlined. So. Yes. So if the different pitcher more Adopted for attracting different types of prey then that might feed into that strategy of. Shifting, targeted pray with allegation I mean that's so cool to know that though in in you know you have some data now to kind of bolster the thought process, but you also have that in combination with the observations that you've made. So it's not just like a shot in the dark. Now they're actually might be something serious going on here. That again is yet to be found in just requires boots on the ground and. Number crunching to release start getting the the some semblance of story I won't even say complete story 'cause? It's ecology. Is the story ever complete. God. But what a great system to have really kind of I don't want to say stumbled upon but really embraced. And it's and it's great because either charismatic. They're so cool to look at and I can't imagine a better way to be in the field just to kind of be surrounded by pitcher plants all day. That's pretty Rad but also. Know thinking of how weird things can really teach us a lot about ecology evolution symbiosis how these things work what gradients? Interactions among the natural world I mean think about all of the questions you can ask what just pennies at the center of it I mean this is such an awesome group for doing science on not just this curious thing that happens in a jungle every once in a while when plants need more nutrients, some sort of horticultural interests I mean, this is real Awesome Eagle. With some big implications. Yeah I definitely see it that way as well in the again That's definitely been a big part of the draw to me as well. You know both being able to work with all of these different tax up the different interactions, but also the fact that I get to touch on different elements of biology right like A. Genetic perspectives incorporating evolutionary viewpoint in as well as an ecological one and in thinking about how plants alter their micro environments venues start to get into. and. Currently in getting some of that perspective as well. Yeah. Against the restated a great system or studying all sorts of different interactions, ben studying it from all different kinds of perspectives, ecological, physiological, and evolutionary. You've got one heck of a career ready to go for you..

"You know is a big group, , florist speaking Southeast Asia is insanely diverse, , but then just even think about it from symbiosis specifically like there's already a laundry list of possibilities in there. . So how do you even begin to start to sort through where you can make your mark on the science because as part of it as as like a young eager scientists in trainings to be like, , okay. . Where do I fit in here? ? Very. . True. . Yeah. . That that was <hes> that was quite a process. . The first two possibly even three yet mostly the first two years but <hes>. . Essentially what I did is I took a strategy to to find that niche I, , kind of just tried everything. . Works but. . I will say. . I did start wanting to focus on the symbiosis between the plants and the the frogs which marina them. . That such, a , an unusual niche interaction with barely little known about it. . So I I thought of that is oh, , that would be a nice place to. . State my claim but. . There there's a reason why some things are not so while studied. . In this case, , the interaction is not so common as her interactions with insects. . Amazon permits again <hes> is is is a key thing. . So apparently, , there's at least one region insider walk in Malaysia which it's not so uncommon to find it but then getting the permits and work, , there is another hassle but. . As I mentioned like the the more I read about the group and just seeing I just had so many questions and <unk> still. . Have so many. . Questions A on. . The first chapter is not one that I anticipated really. . So while I was working on trying to. . See if I can find breeding frogs in in Singapore I. . Wasn't really getting data on that and but I noticed this color polymorphism of the the the common species there <unk> nepenthes. . Priscilla's. . Added on that. But . by first chapter ended up looking into coloration. . Fees and. . Studying that from evolutionary perspective and then also teasing apart what are the possible adaptive benefits of the differences in Ignatius that you see. . So even within a species, , there's variation between red and green editors and you could see within any individuals species but that was not a question that I went in with right and that's important to realize is how much of this is informed budgets being out there walking around being curious you know that's part of it to kind of have to enjoy what you're doing and and enough to kind of have that relaxed state of mind as they like. . My notice that there but not there that's this color not over here and even on the same individual and it's cool that those can then just creep up into your work and become a big part of it without ever really realizing it. . But that's where you know having the passion for the system kind of comes into play because God forbid you sent her on something I didn't want to do that and I should have said that in the meeting kind of thing. . But Again. . You're in the super bio diverse area. . You're studying a group of plants that are super charismatic in also diverse themselves and you mentioned you know these Priscilla's a common species in that area and and as that another limitation to the work to as you mentioned, , just finding frogs breeding in pitchers alone is difficult but you don't want to stay your entire PG or really. . Any research on an organism, you , might find maybe two of in your entire time surging or have to climb repel into all this crazy stuff just get to it <hes>. . So is that a big motivating factor to is just being able to work with species where you can get enough data and ask the kinds of questions to to even start investing the sorts of stuff Yes definitely. . and. . That's A. . That's a nice thing about nepenthes actually. So . all although. . It's this some exotic species from. . Our perspective from coming coming from the West sides difficult. . Get there bought once you're there once you're in those places, , they're usually locally pretty abundant. . You can usually get a lot of plans when when you're in that site. .

"How's everyone doing this week? Today we're talking about pitcher plants specifically, the tropical pitcher plants in the genus nepenthes these. These are some of my favorite plants on earthier incredibly interesting. Their evolutionary history is fascinating and the adaptations they have to deal with nutrient poor environments in which grow have delighted scientists, horticulturist and plant enthusiasts ever since they were first described. But my guest today's studies something very specific about the pitcher environment itself when you think of a pitcher plant and their pitchers easy to just think they're all deathtraps anything that falls in there is going to be destroyed. That's not the case as you're going to hear today the pitchers of nepenthes. Systems in and of themselves, joining us to talk about this is Dr Kadima. Gilbert. He's opposed doc at Penn State and he studies among other things the microbiomes living within pitcher plant fluids of a handful of nepenthes species. This is incredible work because his work just goes to show you that nothing is as simple as it seems in nature and that is so fascinating. The other exciting thing is just when it comes to biodiversity. Scales to this, it's not just the plants and the larger animals if you don't the plants themselves or housing all of these different organisms and there's just it's like the facto universes woo is that sounds his work is just proof of how complex nature can be absolutely fascinating stuff and you know what I don't WanNa keep you from any longer. So let's just jump right into it without further ado. Here's my conversation with Dr Codeine Gilbert I. Hope You enjoy. All right Dr Codeine Gilbert. Thank you so much for coming on the PODCAST. How about we start off by telling everyone a little bit about who you are in what it is you do. Sure. So currently I'm a post doc at Penn state I just started this. Asfaw. Basically I'm interested in symbiosis with plants especially i. just finished my a thesis last year. So I did knife graduate thesis on Sylviane, B.'s N-, also other interactions between. NEPENTHES. Pitcher plants and insects in. Yes Where where did this all begin with you? What got you into carnivorous plants for you? Always a plant person was it just nature and then kind of plants came secondary. Yeah. Okay. So I have been fascinated by the natural world since of very small. Same as actually science I. But I decided I I came to the decision of biology in in fifth grade? But it wasn't actually until Undergrad that I really be image to Lance. Yeah. Girl growing up. I actually wasn't around what I would consider to be nature all that much as as a child though my family is from Dominico which is really wash island in the Caribbean spent most of my life in new. Jersey in kind of more urban setting but Zaza mentioned I was always into science does navid reader I I love reading all kinds of books about science but National Geographic really caught my interest So that's what led me to eventually a playing to Cornell for Undergrad on. INARA. Natural. Resources Rams does essentially conservation biology major because I decided that you know I, I was interested in. Understanding how the world works there is there's something about understanding other organisms living with us the that really me. And eventually, I wasn't plants necessarily a forefront of Mon Mike Minded I but I did have this interest in ecology going in Undergrad and decided to take courses on as many organisms as I could and I my freshman year I took an intro botany chorus and I was. I was pretty soul or I seem naive yet my range of interest actually expanded. Courses I took. So it actually gets to a a a longer some a meandering path to to the carnivorous plants the in school. But the more that I learned about different organisms in Undergrad us I plans then fungi you reptiles and I did very very unrelated some research objects to on under variety different top expanding from soil Arthur odds to starfish. Graffiti and surveys. saw. The actually the the more I wanted to undergraduate was less certain I would be up. On radical but. I knew that I was our going to Grad school next I news next stop science has been you know the that that's been my goal. This is. but. It took it took wool surgery to realize that what's really drawing these these actions between organisms. So. I kind of rotated. Among different labs in the first year of Grad School, and the OB Department at Harvard. And settled into the symbiosis lab nonni Pierce where my lab mates for working on all very different things with a common thread was the interactions. And the pitcher plants came so I was inspired by a fellow Grad. Soon, the time who were senior Grad student was working on nepenthes as well. But this is the made a lot sense for me is also of interest in Southeast Asian Flora and fauna in particular. But when I help is other Grad students with her research project in in my first year while I was still trying to figure out ospel. Picks, the more I learned about the these I've I've quickly find out the interact with pretty much everything. So the conflict in my mind that existed before about do I want to commit to plaid's or do I want to do insects or herbs? I, didn't have to pick one they all interact with. These this fast community of insects, microbes and even frogs that live inside of them. So I saw I just all on potential that group. That is fantastic yet and I think you and I probably went through a similar trajectory in that sense is just kind of really liking the natural world as a whole and not really finding anything in particular. That was like, Oh, I, want to devote the rest of my life to that. But if you like interactions which really that's what the study of Ecology is interaction the inevitably all come to plants, and then when you find something like nepenthes, which is doing some pretty wild stuff. which will get into I mean that to me just screams the perfect thing for someone like yourself. That's curious. Love Science loves interactions and like you said, doesn't necessarily want to specialize in the classic sense not to say Nepenthes as a nice specialist system. But understanding that they are interacting with a vast amount of organisms and what cooler way to kind of express your Love Free College than to study symbiosis I mean that's like some of the cool stuff our planet has to offer right? It's amazing and so what is it like to take that leap into the world of actually studying carnivorous plants? I mean it's an easy sell for a lot of people pitcher plants. Really Cool. But you know taking that from a scientific perspective especially in the context of somewhere you to see the stuff happened in the wild you have to travel right to get out there. So what was that like leap into you know Oh my God I'm actually GonNa do this. Yeah well, the the mentioned I developed interest in. Southeast Asian J. By diversity in general, southeast, Asian by diversity in Undergrad. So I had one research experience in Southeast Asia fire to Grad school already anish should I guess not that I was necessarily as a season tropical biologists yet but I I have. I have a couple of different experiences in rural. deal, biology, in. So Yeah the. L. Prepared for the fieldwork I fell in love with Thi-. Indonesia and. Sophomore year or South summer following my sophomore year. You bring up a key point though that there's a difference between signing on for our you programs undergrad where things are are set up for you and. Being. A Grad student that has the taking charge in. Plan out the all the field season for yourself. So yeah. So that, that was that was an experience I think there's really no way into it but jumping in I have been fortunate to have connections with other researchers in the area through my lab. Are you know people that know my adviser? But there's so many things that you you can't plan for in the. One thing that immediately comes to mind is a fairly a- unfortunate field season where I was viciously attacked by a.

"It wasn't like necessarily like what you think. Like the biggest. Wpa play of all time is a play. Nobody knows about. It was remember what it was. No because I think wasn't Kendrick. Something like third or fourth. This is a guy from the nineteen sixty world series but not the game hunting home. Run as well as I think how Smith and like seventh-inning of game seven took team from behind to a head what happened afterwards is irrelevant but that was the greatest wfia hit in in history which I think is anywhere. The answer to the question is will smith of the giants without a five point six. Wpa was tied Lander and the other two relievers in the top ten were curb gates. Aaron bummer so Aaron bomber was utilized not for saves last year but in the greatest situations where he could affect the outcome of the game and so it was real Smith which I think is really cool and and relevant anyway. The only reason why bummer doesn't get talked about more is he doesn't Miss Bats. That's the only reason he's not getting more love than than he is ready. It could end up closer which frankly could decrease effectiveness and importance to the white sox with people don't realize they think the best relief podrasky close not the best relief. Pitcher has to get out of the most important time. The bases loaded the seventh inning. You need your best pitcher there to get out of that whereas protecting a six three lead in the Nice. You know Vince. Velazquez can do that. Anyway Eric Bold padres prediction was twenty. Twenty one headache is their top player. Overall Mackenzie Gore's not that far behind Matt wants to know what Tristan thinks of the immediate ceiling for. He thinks it's ridiculous. I would have the end of next season being twenty. Twenty one The ceiling is that he. Gosh let me say Saroka continues to come back to mind. And there is a strike out the ceiling on the kids. Goerner at twenty now like how many left these are in our top twenty right now like Kershaw like a.

"Had the most impactful pitching performance from the game regardless of when the lead was taken. They get the win. You give it to the guy. Who's the best pitcher in the game for a team that won? Are you aware of the Pitcher who led Major Leagues Wind? Probably added? So I'm looking at it right now. From last season there's a bunch of started. Great starting pitchers. There's some relief pitchers in there to the top. Three relief pitchers in wins. Probably add one of them tied for the major league with earlier. Do you know how it is. No no because thinking about this win probability added is GonNa come into play of teams that are in close game so I think it's got to be something about just the pitching performance independently of the team. So if it's a I don't know to Graham. Well no relief features like the top starters are among the top pitchers in WPA and win. Probably added a category. I look at it from time to time. This is the change. In probability that would indicate a win or loss based on what what the pitcher did and I was reading an article recently which I loved about. The biggest plays of each team's history of wind probably ended the playoffs. Yes yes that's awesome. I can't remember what site it was. I would give it credit. Maybe I won't be DOT COM and like the Joe Quarter blaming. It wasn't like necessarily like what you think. Like the biggest. Wpa play of all time is a play. Nobody knows about. It was remember what it was. No because I think wasn't Kendrick. Something like third or fourth. This is a guy from the nineteen sixty world series but not the game hunting home.

"Either pitcher couple of other guys getting saves. That people wouldn't expect Nick Birdie. Bu Rdi of Pittsburgh last year had like I don't know like seventeen strikeouts seven or eight innings but then got hurt he's Pittsburgh's closer in the SIM knocking on a Kayla again. Lose a job in real life but birdies getting the now. The white sox are gone with Aaron. Bummer who they gave a long term contract to in real life this off season and he is closing instead of Alex Yeah Colony was really not all that good does have three saves in the SIM in fairness. And but you're right leaning on bummer. A lot more Let's like Trevor got is is gotten the giants saves. He's got five not Tony Watson. Any thoughts of these guys birdie bomber. Anybody birdies arm may be worth throwing the dart add like Jairo de as an l. only in the reserves in the reserve rounds. I do think that is Kelly's job and I. I am a believer in Kelly where the SIM doesn't guts. I said well it's an interesting candidate. It's really wide open in San Francisco. That's one we're GONNA have to keep an eye on when the Spring Games resume right and I'm looking at the last game. That were played in the same nice shot by the phillies. Losing twelve to two phillies are like the worst team. In this thing I still don't know where kingery is the plan. That guy was on Boston's Rosser third base. They must have injuries. Because kingery must've gotten hurt and I haven't noticed anybody else but tons of home. Runs Cleveland scored? Twenty three runs at Boston I was looking at a similar dental number where I saw it. I guess it was enough. Sarah's there was a team that scored eleven runs in the thirteenth inning. And then in the bottom of the other team scored eleven runs so sims are all over the place for some of this stuff out of the park as well Just it's fun. It's fun looking at the stuff and seeing what you're doing so the Commission One of my leagues playing out our fantasy teams as a Sim. Even though we didn't draft them for the same. We drafted him for fantasy. Ocala bring this up because I want to get your opinion on this and I'll try not to say mean things too much but so the league in I in a bunch of leagues. This League is twelve team keeper. Sixteen teams I've been in a long time and all of a sudden somebody brings up something to vote on and actually passed for now. The vote was at a thirteenth keeper without notice would be a minor leager. He's not playing the major leagues at all. No pass no eatings. Nothing and I was like okay. That's not a bad idea. Got A couple. I've got on the rush Mond. Got Joey Barn. I could put one of them in that spot. The problem is they voted in for now. And I said I argued to the commissioner. Another guy said what are you nuts? You can't vote this today. Nobody prepared for this. You have voted for next season for twenty twenty one and an even if there isn't twenty twenty. I'm still not even sure you can have twenty twenty one. The point is not every team has a minor leager. And I didn't prepare my team to have twelve keepers if one of them is also the thirteenth minor leaguer. So my another guy. Who's a lawyer is arguing? You can't enact this for right now. The season's already started technically. There's no games but the season has started for twenty twenty and I'm like I don't WanNa play in a league like this and nobody likes me anyway. So they'd be fine if I quit but my point to you is. Would you have a problem with this? Big Vote now major problem with it. I think you have every right to object of interesting that you bring up the lawyer friend. Who's getting into the terminology of the Constitution? Of this league. And he's right to my take on that is and this is going to influence a lot of leagues. Especially if we do lose the two thousand twenty is how are keeper and Dynasty and Dynasty? League's going to deal with a lost year and how how players are going to be carried over and you and I also going to deal with this in our Sim Leagues is how are we going to deal with the potential loss season. My take is this season is already underway. The process is already under way. If you've started your seasonal process at all somehow because I guess you just made these decisions early and then okay but I think any change to a league. That's being done in year. A significant change like you describe must be a unanimous vote and I'm adamant that it must be unanimous. Yes.

"It depends on the League context and ESPN Standard Leagues. You're right he doesn't. He doesn't get on the radar. I don't think he's far outside of that conversation. Which means anything. Larger than ten teams entered mixed. I I like him a lot. I want to drive guys with the kind of stuff that he has. An two paths to fantasy relevance one being as a starting pitcher as we're seeing in the semi bold call by them and I think a wise one but I also think he has a path to potentially being the closer frankly for the brewers. I mean if they wanted to free up Josh Hater to us at the key moments in the game and not tied to the ninth inning. I think Peralta stuff does play that the real issue with him at least on that and from a relief standpoint is the fly ball nature and the fact that he does occasionally get a little erratic with the walks. That's a UH shaky Combo as you and I both know walks and fly balls from the closers but I love the stuff. I think you can almost make the border on. Casey's a pick in the standard to all right so today. Let's talk about some more pictures that are doing stuff. And we're just not considering them. And let's talk about the leader Kyle Freeland of the rockies who two years was very good. I think he was like third in the Cy Young Award voting ahead a legit season he pitch well at Coors Field. He struck out enough hitters to make intrigued. Now obviously the rocky the chorus field factor is a problem but right now that's a zero point nine three array so should we be would you rather consider? Peralta or kyle freely Peralta and it's not by leaps and bounds because of the role question. I mean freelance is going to be locked into that rockies rotation that's an advantage volumes and advantage deeper the league gets but I'd rather take the stuff and I don't think freelance compares the value to free Lennon Eric. We I mean we. We talked about this before because you took him in labor as a reserve pick which was a brilliant time to take him that you can maximize the matchups individually in labor. You can't bench any player that you bought me auction but you can freely activate and bench players that you take in the reserve round so if you took them that you're now given the maximum ability to move them in and out as you like avoid. The cores games against the loaded lineups. That's the way to get the maximum value to freeland. It's I think it's a lot of homework and most people in the casual or shallow mixed. Leagues aren't willing to do it. Here's another rockies pitcher so there are ten starting pitchers right now. Averaging twelve strikeouts per nine who was number ten. It's well then mostly guys we've heard of before doing this. Burland Julieta MOM bueller Garrett Cole. And then to others the number one guy and caper nine right now is Danny Salazar. The former Indians right hander. Who just couldn't stay healthy. And he's averaging fourteen point six K per nine obviously if he was anywhere else than Colorado. It'd be a big difference but should we at least have him on our radar for the future. We have no idea about health but we know we can miss.

"Zack wants to help us to help him. In a shallow keeper league deciding between SIROCCO and woodruff shallow. Keep religions neither. Well isn't it. Okay Shallow Meeting Dynasty and a very good point here though. No I mean my point is like if you're in a shallow keeper where you're keeping three. Why are either of these pictures being kept unless it's a leak and so he's keeping six to ten? I with Erica. Then well I will answer his question but the first thing I think of here is like you've got to have better better hitters are more stable that you can count on for more playing time and build around offense and then draft pitcher. This is what I would do so I don't view either these guys good keepers in shallow. Keep relief but I think it doesn't have to be SIROCCO. I mean what if the strikeout upside but the concerns about durability there rocus shoulder was two years ago I mean. Nobody wanted them last year. I'd stay injury question before last year. That seems to be being forgotten. Yeah absolutely I think. Sirocco is a better pitcher in terms of the building perspective. Let's say over the next three to five years I. I liked the pitcher better but I don't like to keep the pitch to contact guys. I don't ever like to keep the pitch to contact guys. It seems to me that he array jumped by a run and he can pitch the scene he did last year and just because of luck and you know more home runs. It's it's almost impossible with the happy fun ball to give up. Only fourteen home runs and twenty nine Starkville then we have to look at the ballpark differentials for these heavy noticed screen. You have noticed anything about the baseball. I guess we we won't be yelled glee. It's not enough data yet but I I am because remember. This came up in the baseball discussion last year. At the first pitch that The the spring training number showed no hint of it coming during the regular season. So I'll say Saroka but I don't think either agree keepers. Look I'm I'm going woodruff but I agree with you. I think it's a no on both. I mean for example. Who would be a hitter that you would say you would keep over both of them that maybe people want thinking about like Eddie? Rosario exciting already seen his best. You have to keep Eddie. Rosario either of these starting low on Bass. Marcel Uzun A- as so laer you have to keep these guys over non top. Twenty starting pitchers with injury concerns. Jose abreo would fit into that. Semi-in would fit into that. I'd probably take my chances with Carlos. Correa over either of them. You have to you have to that. There's some question. There's some legitimate question their next last one here. They're wondering if you're concerned about mad bomb. He's got the weird Rodeo story. At the bike accident. Last year has been pitching the deck in the League forever. Are you concerned about? Bumgarner is your S. P. Three this season. Well I'm not but tristen are you. Because back he stole only thirty. There's a lot of innings over the years although the last in seventeen and eighteen Mr Bunch of starts but I thought what he did. Last year was fine. Like why can't he do that again? Obviously leaving San Francisco. He has extreme home road splits. Arizona's not exactly chorus field anymore. Either but last year Bumgarner to ninety-three home. Era Five twenty nine road the year before that one sixty three home. Four ninety seven road. So there's something there are you see if bumgarner ends up with three ninety era gin and two hundred strikeouts. I'd be fine with that. Can't you can't predict the wins? Yeah as a third store order in a standard mixed. Yeah that's okay. I don't have a major problem with it. I don't know if I'm ranked thirty seven. So that would qualify as your fourth. But we're quibbling there and you're right the ballpark thing only matters here because in San Francisco called the most extreme pitcher's park in baseball his home by the way it changed the fences this year. So just keep that in mind going forward Arizona's also swung back towards neutral. Frankly chase field so I don't think that's a a severe switch. It adds a quarter run. His era maybe and that would make it four twenty five and that'd be a conservative people may look. It looks a lot different. When that era starts with a three and a four I think the big concern over this Rodeo story which was excellent athletic is durability are making thirty four starts this year you know what let the guy have some fun? I mean do we do. We know what every player is doing off the field. You know during their free time. Wild Boars out there tristen. Maybe some players like to go. I don't know what we do. They mean like why. Why would we sweat it over that story? I mean my safe and makes them happier. I'm not worried about the diamondbacks to judge whether they have an issue with it or not I mean whatever but I'm not going to change his draft ranking based on the story. You know Chris and I might end up getting them in labor again because nobody wanted last year and I. I suspect the same happening in this year. But fifteen. What's GONNA go for? What'S HE GONNA go? I don't think I'd go over fifteen hoping for twelve anyway. He might go for ten to twelve. I do so no. You're really rules. Obviously all the league's doing are different. Labor drafts this weekend in Florida. I think he can still sign up through baseball. Hq If you want to check out first pitch Florida. They're very different. And you and I approach them very differently as well. You actually study in advance and then Some of these other leagues. Just keep track. No the League rules. Don't don't be around three. And then like two catchers or one or is it on base batting average people doing this for data base batting. Geel. We just mentioned any. Rosario be aware of your legal roles if any final thoughts you owe your round in the In your TJ FBI. I'm only made two picks were they. Soto and Ottawa. Fifteen and sixteen. Yeah wow that's good value for both thought so there were no pictures. I would take that early so don't listen yet. At least one pitcher coming around and in fact I think I'm either upper close to it but you know when we live our correcting downward too much the prospect that are not could get traded. I'm seeing him. Get to fifteen or beyond to officer because of potential trade. You'll think so. Yes I absolutely do think so. I'm four picks away cleven gers falling obviously is nobody wants clovinger. It picked forty one of my league and cleverness throw out there John Lewis Studios Available Alito. Aaron Nola so I'll probably take ochre. I'll take herself. He's available but I doubt maybe maybe slip to me Jonathan Vr. Be Nice to look. I don't think John. Vr. Is a great baseball player. But that's probably twenty five to thirty steals whereas I don't think ten guys are stealing twenty five thirty basis. But where did for years he went to pick? After I took our Nado so he wants to seven seventeenth. Pick overall he was. I think he was the next to last pick. In the first round mining was fourteen. People Love Them. People love him. There isn't where's the prophet. Where's the room for Prophet? The Prophet is one hundred forty games. That's what it is. I think the Providence. He plays one hundred sixty games. I don't think he's doing that. I think a hundred and forty is the only way he locks in at that top. Fifteen ish price. All right. We're done for today. We'll be back next Wednesday. Thank you so much for listening. I was expecting some Bernie Williams and but it's too late now. Kyle you drop the ball and I was expecting that as like a staple of our final minute establish new. Somebody's got to be made aware of this. You did it last year. We wasn't one one pipe. I love the way you change your voice for the Bernie Williams music segment but ruined it. Now I it's my day is ruined now. I'm interested how you're going to work in awesome says ending up the move so this week we will be drafting and labor get.

"Then that might be the right draft spot. But if that's where he's GonNa slip I want him? I think he is as I said. Superior Pitcher and the worst case scenario has them in a committee where they don't have committed guy the entire year sleepers asleep prefer where you rank them. I think I think you really. Yeah because I think people are GonNa view them as a top ten closer. He's GonNa fix this going to be okay. He was very unlucky last year. Look at the number really was like historically unlucky stuff was still there the case we're still there. He gave a ton a homer to righties. And that's there's Nick Anderson Tampa. I think is there closer. And if he is like are you nick? Anderson's upside is Kirk Gates. How many saves Emilio Pagan Have Lester all right so maybe only gets twenty? Five as opposed to Gates is forty right. I want to be with you all in Nick Anderson. I think I would have a hard time. Taking rule smoothed over Nikki Anderson. Right now I know that sounds. Yeah Chris Fair. I have a hard time doing that because I think I don't know I mean opportunity. You're right will Smith could push milan-san aside and on the first week of April I suppose sleepers late. Somebody's got closed for these teams cardinals. Who gets the most safe right now? Giovanni gave us but it will probably be in the twenty five range. I think there'll be some changing around. I think Carlos Martinez is going to have to close at some point. Because I'm not sure Carlos Martinez going to close at all. I think I was going to be there closer Francisco. Wow sorry no I know. I'm just saying wow to that situation means Shawnee Anderson Tony Welcoming. It's so you not care them. I kinda like Tony Watson. Kind of the light will Smith But I do think they're going to shuffle guys in and I mean a kid. Kappler bullpen. Sean Anderson could fit in there tyler. Tyrod Taylor Rogers tyler tailored from could have to Rogers Brennan Wurley. Same name closing. You move. Brandon Workman up over under thirty saves. Well they declared a mic closer and I like the fact that they locked in a guy with a new manager so that statement at the beginning of spring training is a positive to me the give me the number thirty. I will say the over That's interesting okay. Well like what are you? Look when you look at relief pitchers for fantasy like. Is there a certain statistics that you're looking at any peripherals here that you're saying wow I want that? Tell me what you look at you and your leaks. What is swinging factor is a number one world's ahead of anything else and after that I would like to see control next and then I would like to see keeping the ball down and I know you agree with me on that one. You don't like the guys who keep the ball in the Air Sean do little. I'm looking at you because they come with a lot of risk. And the risk doesn't involve blowing up your area at involves losing the closer job itself do Washington's closer. I think it's I'm not sure who Washington's closer is going to be this year you WanNa ask me to predict that bullpen for the whole year. Who who leads? I'll say the Hudson lead that team and save. I don't think that's going out on a limb I you know could will Harris. I doubt him though. I think it's like him the best but I agree with you. It's I that's why I don't know here all right there. You go and you're more likely than me to take a relief pitcher in the first ten rounds. I'm probably going to avoid that. And that's just the way we view things a little bit differently. You you will draft hater. You will draft the Yankee closer. I will wait and if my first closer is. I did this in an important league last year. My talk closer was hosting the clerk and that that was in towers but I thought he was safe wasn't safe so if my clothes are this year Nick Anderson. Well he's not saved for saves or anything so I guess there's risk there but I'm more likely to have like Archie Bradley. Ken Giles as my first closer. That's fair and I think those guys are probably priced appropriately. I am finding and that's that's the tier that I've had to dive into in my draft so far. I mean. Granted his early but yeah. I'm not getting those top guys. They're actually going a little bit sooner than even I'm willing to pay. Don't punt a category and draft day but if you're going to punt wine it's relief pitching because you can get you can get saves. You can get him off the waiver wire. They're easy to trade for Enlai ran out last year. It was so easy to people were just dumping their closers. I mean I paid nothing for these closers. Yeah so to me like two pence to like on Friday night. I don't care who's listening first of all nobody in the League cares. I think I haven't won so I I. Who am I say the Janssen it's gotta be like I'm not paying double digits for like Raizal a glacier archie Bradley there because I can get them cheaper and I can trade for these guys on the bad teams midseason. You agree with that. I would from a broad perspective not in that league in that league. A lot of you have this viewpoint and if Archie Bradley Stalls at eleven dollars you had better be in. I don't know if I will because I think that closers will be really cheap. Yeah but which would you rather do? Would you rather take the uncertain guy who six seven dollars? Who doesn't have the job the committed? Would you rather have mark Malone said at seven dollars or probably milan-san because I don't think Archie Bradley's any safer than milan-san adults I do. I think the competition isn't even close rally last year. He wasn't that good are brand new. Excellent after in your draft. You're GONNA how much you're gonNA spend one Hanzel robots. They already said he's the closer but that doesn't mean you're going to be good again. The volatility on this position is unbelievable and won't leave. But I agree with you. I don't I wouldn't want to go twelve dollars for Hansel robots and. I'm not even want to pay that but I don't think he's the right specific example. If it's Nick Anderson for fourteen dollars or it's Joe Jimenez for eight. I'm taking Nick Anderson. If it's Joe Jimenez for four or five all day we'll take him. I want to try to get like Scott o'byrne for five and that's not my sleeper guy in that bullpen. Who's your Super Guy Higher as I. D. as the the injury question is a large one but I really liked the development he showed last year I actually think he could emerge from that bullpen. I think that's a reasonable thing to think. Okay that's the first half of our show now. Kyle's turned play some music and ask some.

"And a guy who does come with injury risk. And why would you? Why would I just based on the ability has when he's healthy the swinging potential? I love guys like that. I I have to take the optimists approach with the information that we have today. Okay so Chris. Sale over under twenty five starts right now. I'll take the over on that. We both have fourteen starting pitchers in our top sixty overall which seems fair. I've I've evolved over the years where I would take a couple starters earliest to my first four pictures stars. That's fine but I'm not. I never went to a draft saying oh it's got to be a hit or a pitcher in round one and then the opposite. I never do that. You kind of just did that though in that in that fifteen or so. Do you go into draft saying well this my first pick will be a hit or did you say best available and then react to that now in this one where you do have some say in what pick you take. I was Kinda hoping at four if I ended up being there. That one of the top three would slip because it did happen. If you remember in our other League of the style I believe it was. Trout fell to four which I still can't explain. I STILL CAN'T JUSTIFY FRANCISCO. Door was on the top three But did not go into this assuming I was going to go in one direction. As a matter of fact it was a difficult call and I had to base the team strategy based on that and it was nothing more than that. But I don't have an issue with taking that ace. If you're in the back end so eric in your case you you picked a later. Pick in your in your draft in that spot. I kind of like the idea that say you're GONNA ten to fifteen team league and you're drafting between ten and fifteen. I like the idea that you're going to probably get one of those four ace types at the back end. You're going to get a great hitter and you're going to get a great pitcher and it's a good way to start your team. I'd I'd very likely go in that direction. Don't think I would lock into two hitters in any way. I don't think I would like into pitchers and either way if I was drafting in that spot mowing my draft. Not only were. The top. Four star has grown bueller. Went to pick before me so to me the first one. Yeah yeah so I had surprise hitters so of your top ten. Let's talk more about ESPN Standard Leagues? Or what you you rank for no. Espn standard is points leaves. Aj Mess has rankings there. I wrote a ranks. You have head to head categories rankings. So technically the standard. But I don't think it's the most played that's pretty divided though. I have no idea what we're doing but I'll just talk about your case. So risks early on sale I think is a risk excel is a risk to a degree. Last year was not you know smooth injuries? Or the risk Clayton Kershaw. Same thing. Yeah well. Sales era was four and a half was a not. No I'm saying smell now. Okay smells snows was some misfortunate balls in play. Some of the things that went right for him in the year went terribly wrong for him. In the Games he played when healthy but there are there are health questions regarding sale. Snell Kershaw and then of course. Now we've had. It might clever with that. You know the Louis Vote. We vote through a drop clovinger down quite a bit. I think. Sixteen and Seventeen respectively Other pitchers here are of no darvish. Twenty one for you. So you're buying that. Why he did last season where he just inexplicably stopped working. People is legit and I can't argue that you what's ahead of Otani. I can't I don't know where I have Otani rank. He doesn't really count for this. I feel how I what's your perspective on on ranking Otani. I don't want them. I don't WanNA deal with it. I don't think he's making twenty five starts and I don't think he's batting four hundred times. I think they're going to be really careful with again. Our game though which is the purpose of the ranks. Yes I think. We need to me born more optimistic than the upside tick right because we can or game exploit the daily matchups for him. We can if we're going to do the homework. We can maximize Otani's utility because we're going to get both sides of the ball and we're going to know the days isn't doesn't pitch. Nowadays he pitches. He's not going to be lineup. As a hitter. Anyway so we're maximizing every stat there and also there's a big difference between attendant fifteen league and a ten team League on. Espn mean. Free Agency is loaded right. I mean there's going to be homerun hitters. There is going to be decent. Starting pitchers they're closers. It's going to be sitting there all like nobody's going to draft Michael Gibbons then we draft handle robust is going to be close out there so you could take a shot on upside pick like Otani who could be a top ten starting pitcher in theory so you can take a shot on that. Because you know that if he's hurt or if you have the bench and you can always find somebody else a deeper league. You really can't take that chance although you would argue. Well if I'm not winning my deep league I might as well finish less so you take the chance there. It's a strategy. That's all tyler glass. Now everybody's talking about him. Where do you stand on this? Is He a potential top? Ten Guy is an injury risk that you don't want any part of you've got ranked in your top hundred quite certain I don't so. Are you feeling like one hundred? Fifty innings is likely. No but I don't think a hundred and fifty innings as a black market. I'm either I think it's he's got unbelievable potential when he's out there on the mound and I do trust the raise ability to manage their pitchers they maximize their matchups on both sides of the ball. they also have a great ballpark for pitchers. I think that's another thing that works very much in favor of the raise. Is that there. Ballpark is very pitching friendly. And I don't think people give enough credit to how much it is and a third thing in glasnost favors that he's constantly making adjustments to improve himself. He's talked about this a lot during spring training that he's he's trying to mix up the pitch mix. I think he's working on a splitter this spring training I like guys who are going to ditch their bad pitches. Add some new ones experiment a little bit of a little bit to improve their game. One of the things I talked about a miracle. Today was balance. Ostlund young players Durable and navy brittle players could go for teams to. I don't want three members of the same rotation when it comes to starting pitchers do you have any strategy that you like to share you. Take more chances than not. Do you want to rebel players left versus ready anything that you can share? I'm less apt to draft the durable players now on the pitching side than I ever was. I do think you can piece pitching together. That's one of the reasons I did. Go with. Coal is that he's one of the very few who does have the durability at least the track record for durability so I know that's my one known commodity. He's the anchor of the staff. And I think the rest of the staff you can mix and match and that includes. The bullpen is a dangerous strategy. We'll get to that in a little bit. But I do think that if you were aggressive on the waiver wire especially in our game where there's a lot of free agents out there you could stream almost the entirety of your remaining pitching staff. That's the reason I guys like tyler glass now like Brennan Woodruff who might have some some durability or work load questions. I think you can maximize their numbers. Frankie montage montage of the as I don't know if he can give you a two hundred innings but I think in what he does give you he's GonNa give you some break a potential as well on that same kind of kind of sense all right. I'll name some pictures from your rankings. And you know you tell me what comes your head. Julio Maria so the dodgers another guy who I love the upside and I don't think that the I won't say durability I don't think that the workload slash stamina will be there. I think I read. This is the kind of guy. You should be projecting one hundred forty innings and every single out. He gives you over. That is gravy. But you're gonNA like what he gives you on kind of like the light glass now tear Herman Marquez of the rockies in but there's a cap a ceiling it's a chorus pitcher and John Gray to the same token he. Yeah and I'm in a less you know at a much lower price than than Marquez. But I do believe you can with homework. Extract Maximum Value Question Must Grove of the pirates. Like him was on. The king's command list for this year has great skills and the issue is Dave Bush our favorite day Bush from back in the day can pitch out of the stretch if he can improve that one area. I think must grow could really breakthrough this year. So that's what I'm watching with him in a general sense stress in how do you view pictures on bad teams pirates? Miami Baltimore because run support just might not be there. Winds may not be there. Detroit like Matthew Boys on a bad team vigers bad but he strikes is that okay so like how do you view Caleb Smith and Matthew Boys and Guys Sandy Alcantara guys are the silk? I think there's great value in them. I think there's a lot of streaming potential in them. They're usually out there and a large number of leagues. I will tell you though that being on those bad teams in this day were teams mixing matching. Not letting their starting pitchers go deep in a Games wins is increasingly a problem. You'll see projections and rightfully so in the eight to ten range for a good pitcher on a bad team and that is a problem for that category in a traditional Rodeo. Since you're going to have to find other guys who are gonNA fill in those holes that's why the streaming strategy is critical around them with included sleepers from your rankings that I would rank. Better Hosea quickey of the. Astros at still very good team Pablo Lopez my aunt. Sandy out cancer. You have made any throw them better than that. Sa- Volley of Cleveland. I believe we'll be better than that. I saw some today. Drew Pomeranz might actually start because they're loaded about that interesting common although he was elite in the bullpen and he has not shown that yet as a starter. Anytime in the majors that concerns me all who apparently pitch roll yesterday. I didn't see it. But that's curious on him. Yeah that's a guy I'm tracking a little bit the spring Kopech or the white sox going back from Tommy John. I saw some people talking up Austin Voth Voss of Washington Yep he had had the stuff for years stable skillset likely to grab that spot in the rotation. That's a Nice Dart. Throw at the end. I mean maybe not in our game but anything deeper John Lesser. The cubs who. I'm probably going to Labor on Friday so out on your ear approach lesser. If he's a dollar you wouldn't take a for dollar come on. You would two dollars. I I need to tell you. Yes is the right answer to that. But that league where they lock were. He's locked pastor every year. It's twelve wins enough strikeouts. I mean it was a high uranium dollar you know he's not going to be like a cheap last year talking. Gna ask he was less than five bucks. G got it for like two dollars last year. I'm almost a weird auction. Though I remember at the is this too. Well that was a weird auction you and I had this discussion. Jeff Smarter you paid. What twelve firm last year? I not that for gay. Did you paid in the double digits because we had this or any starting pitcher bumgarner. It was. I'm sorry I took Bumgarner for like fifteen. That's what it was and immediately. After that period prices fell off the table and he earned that what he was fine. I and that was an issue but you question. I'm you and I talked about the night. Said IT'S THE RIGHT PRICE. But after that by comparison there were much better bargain. So I don't think Lester at two dollars as representative if he goes to the pricey showed if he's four or five bucks or you locking him in at that price maybe for that price with you because if he stinks you cut them. We'll get to the RODEO master later in the show relief pitching time. Now Josh Hater you have sixty three then. You have a drop off the curb. Yates of the Yankee. Closer Astros closer. I moved down. I don't know if you noticed this significantly my reliever prices adjusted for what I perceive. The market is going to be. And it's GONNA be down. Yeah I think there's going to be a lot of closers going between rounds eight and fifteen and I think that's the right price point. I have a little ahead of where the market would some some names jump out to me. I do not have Kenley. Jansen and Ryan were you do do not will Smith. I don't think he's are closer. I think Marlon Atlanta's closer. They pretty much made that clear or is it closer. So why do you will Smith number eight if vastly superior pitcher to mark Melanson? So you think he'll just take the saves. Yes I do. Worry I've been thinking about moving. Will Smith down to one hundred and fifty range which would probably have thirteenth fourteenth at the position..
"pitcher" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Baseball
"Trophies they're all adorning his show your master player evaluation strategy singing and locating underrated chicken. Parm venues the glass and be calling. Bristol's the underrated. Carl Sabi pushing all the right buttons as our producer because basically somebody has to and he excels in statistical sport. I have no idea how he feels about. Not very good at excel nobles. What's the source? I'm eric needed. A host. On today's show Spring Games had begun. We will focus on some more injuries evaluating starting and relief pitchers and later on when the music plays we answer your twitter. Hash browns. Here's the Buzz Games have started. Have you been watching tristen? And Have you noticed anything that would affect your rankings or do you need a couple more weeks or does it? Not Matter at all. I've been watching. There's nothing really to react off of yet. Nothing major at least one game where especially pitcher's throwing one inning. Maybe two is not going to tell me much of anything in these early Early going a lot of the players coming off injuries are going to be working very slowly. So that's a pattern. We're seeing here so I'm not making any rash movements. Yeah I would say probably by a week from now. It's time to start reacting and moving guys around. Yeah I mean I got the Games on in the background but like Logan homers. It doesn't mean much to me. Made me something to the announcers who are going nuts. But not to me. I'm looking for injuries and looking for why players aren't out there on the field. It seems like a lot of players battling discomfort. In soreness. We get that every spring. I worry about in three weeks. Monte Grande ousted hasn't suited up on March fifteenth. That'd be different. We do have one major guy to discuss. That's Luis Severino of your Yankees and I'll let you discuss it. But I'm going to say one thing I want. No part of this. I wanted to partner wanted no part of it last year and I went to update my rankings the next day or so number fifty. I among starters I I'm going to move in to a place that I just. I'm not even stashing him. I don't see how this ends. Well what do you think I know you're sad by that? I mean maybe reality you. I think you're right. And this is going to delve into the philosophy of rankings and that is should the rankings reflect the projection or should the rankings reflect. What you specifically at the draft table are going to do because that part of me is the pessimist with Severino. I don't like this injury. We know where a lot of these go. I don't want to inspire a panic here but when he talks about he has discomfort when he throws a change. Hope it's unusual and I don't like the very uncertain description of this and the fact that they're shutting them down. I can't see how he's ready on opening day so we're already looking at that. As the best case scenario that he he has an eye allston to start the first couple of weeks. I'm worried I used to rank players like this so I didn't look dumb and now I don't care anymore I mean. Are You going to rank fiftieth? Let's look down here today while you're putting a rank and right now what I rather David Price Luis Severino. This season they would price. I think I'm going to move him to a spot that looks that reflects what I think as opposed to ranking him twenty two which is kind of like in the middle and saying well maybe I want. I don't want him I don't want him. This is not going to end. Well now maybe he pitches in April and I look stupid but that won't be the first time I just. I don't rank maybe it's maturity and I'm not as twenty three more like I just don't feel like ranking players at a certain spot. I don't do this in football either. Call you know this like if I don't think the Carson Wentz play them because everybody else's is random twenty because that's where I think he belongs from now on and different from weekly perspective and football and by the way you know you've kind of become wise and you're twenty nine years of age here so anyway. Severino be careful right. You agree yes. This is the thing when I raised. Philosophy is that what I don't like doing is taking an uncertain diagnosis on a player. Swinging them all the way down to the pessimists rank so for example I I think I would feel uncomfortable. Drafting in the top sixty at his position right now but I can't rank him like that in a published set of rankings. Because the last thing I want to do is put him. They're finding the diagnosis is not all that severe. And they need to move backup twenty-fifth I hate doing that. I I see that point. But by the way and this goes to a larger philosophy here look at our rankings. But don't look at our rankings. Look at our projections and ADP but don't look at our projections and ADP. People guides their guides. Wants to this right. But it doesn't always reflect your league rules as I wrote an article today and also this is just a guide for where a player's GonNa go if we have you Suarez. Ranked in the fifth round. That means taking the second round is not smart. But if you wait until late fourth you might not get so this is just about the range of where a player's going to go but the projections the ADP the rankings. All that stuff. They're just guides and I don't even follow my own half the time. Well that's the thing I don't I don't look at them as guides guides us to where they're gonNA go. I look at them as closer to where I feel that they should go. Yeah that's fair to but also I mean it also is a it's like a referendum on what others believe so you know what others think about these players. I if Nick Madrigal's going around twenty okay. Generally I know I don't have to reach around ten to take him but but I started thinking about if I really want them. I'M GONNA start looking around sixteen around seventeen. We both have major drafts were. Our names are on the line here. The Labor Drafts League of Alternative Baseball. Reality it's been around for what this weekend Florida. Yes so and I remember. This story keeps going back to mind that the first year I played in it we had that issue Jeff. Kent was washing his car and I think he fell and broke his hand or something and it happened the day of my draft and that was the draft. I was in was the only. You're in it with me on that. Day Your rankings. We'll say where the player was. We can't necessarily updated at the time even if we did. Aren't you on that day? The most terrified to draft that player the day that the Severino news broke that day. You'RE OUT YEAH I've probably be out and I don't think that's wrong. I don't think that's a wrong feeling. We because there's too much unknown but I don't think for the publish rankings that it does a lot of service for me. This is the way I look at it to to move them down significantly until I know what's going on. I'm putting them. I'll say I'd throw number thirty on them. We'll get to labor drafts and and the NFC DRESS. We're doing a little bit later in the show briefly with other names because I don't think there's another major story. I won't draft either. He's Lana team right now but even when it gets on what? I'M NOT GOING TO BUY IN. I hope it's not Chicago White Sox block any young prospects you know or like there was talk about Colorado. Don't don't block hilliard. Who may be more openings. Though I understand why would you want him? I just I know I'm out. Well you gotTa love it. If it's from a fantasy perspective if he ends up in chorus field. You're going to love that. This is the kimber argument from last spring. I didn't know when he was going to sign then he never did until July. You know it's like how you're going to stash this guy forever. This concern about Freddy Freeman Elbow inflammation. He scrammed. Today's game. He did up off season surgery on that elbow now he had a great year anyway. But if you had him ranked twelfth moving into seventeen lake or it does not matter. This could be out. Yeah I it could matter I lean towards it not mattering right now because I trust the consistency and durability that he has shown for the most part over the past five years That was one of the reasons I liked him so much. So if this lingers over I'd say a week to ten days plus then I would start to panic. Because that is going to erode the greatest strength that he had. He's not in the second round because he puts forth potential first round numbers. He's in the second round because he consistently puts up numbers very much within that range. I don't see a whole lot of other news. We need to get twos or anything that you would like to discuss in the news just does not much here like I don't care that altuve. It was great by pitch. He's going to be fine. The frankly a couple of these astras are going to be. Really under. Railing drafts That's the thing. How are you noticing that they're coming at a discount? All a huge discount which I think is ridiculous. Can you believe so you mentioned we're doing a couple of these drafts? Tj FBI draft. I was shocked to see that Alex. Bregman nearly made it back to my second round pick. This is a fifteen team mixed league. Bregman almost made it back to what would have been picked. Twenty seven overall in round two. I don't get that is way too. Even ways count. He went before I I pick. Fifteenth eventually took a long time to get my pick and and he was gone. Sorta I got Soto and Aaron Auto which I was pleased with but yes bregman to me. They still a first round pick. I haven't like ranked number ten. But that's different format to out to around two. You know you're Alvarez. He did it because of the blank. Bang sorry I'm not buying that. Let's lots of discussion today on starting pitchers and relief pitcher. So let's get into that I guess overall. How comfortable are you with taking a starting pitcher and around one Garrett Cole? You're sitting there around seven or eight? I picked seven or eight are really taking a starting pitcher or are you taking safer guys that you feel like Bregman Arranhado. What are you doing or does it depend? I'm taking call and I did. Just take home at four overall at four fifteen league a little bit different and I did want to go into this with the different because the leaning for me in this draft based on the depth for mixed leagues was to go a bit towards the modified Lebanese. My theory was that I was not gonNa like the starting Pitcher I could get around two or three on the way back in a league this steep And it turned out that Stephen Strasburg was there at my pick. And retrospect I would rather have gone with cody bellinger in that spot. A number four and take in Strasbourg and round two. But you know so be it. I like coal a lot based on. I think it's a pretty high return on investment probability which is not present at the starting pitching position. He's one of those rare guys where he put up as I said a record swinging strike rate last year since that's been tracked. His was a record. Yeah no I I see what you're saying. There's a paucity of top ace guys. You know. Maybe twelve to fifteen of them. So when a fifteen league as opposed to ESPN STANDARD TEN team. Points Leagues. Yeah you might reach a little bit. And I don't think I could have taken colour bellinger in almost any format. I see why you did it. There's not a points thing and appoint sleep. Maybe but I'm sure speaking was the direction I went there. I think that we're you're saying it's seven absolutely. It's going to depend a little bit on what's left there at seven but mainly the case for a player over him if that's in bellinger and guys like that are already got. We've discussed the top tier on previous shows. Cole one gram to Verlinde three. You've sure's or a little bit down eighteen Sober on fourth overall. And then you've got bueller five so a little bit of a distance between those guys with first here in the second tier you've Chris Sale Eight. He's probably going to be my do not draft. Why do you think he's going to be on that list for me? You wouldn't pay the premium and a guy who does come with injury risk. And why would you? Why would I just based on the ability has when he's healthy.

"Five degrees in the morning and it gets colder and colder up the day every single day for the last month and it's been miserable out and you go down to Florida and it's Sunny Florida and everyone's having a good time. All all the employees are happy. You know. Everyone's relatively healthy. It will get into her in a second. But it's just such a great time time and I can't wait for us down there because I think that's coming up soon member last year it was beautiful. We had a great time but remember the game I came to a hundred guys lasted three pitches. And you were having heatstroke. We sat me and Tommy Sat in like where the food area is for five the legends area Spring Training. Yes we also went out the night before that was asked hung over but still that was we were miserable pricks. That wasn't wasn't even a hang on. That was just heat. Heat heat exhaustion. It's like look spring. Training is fun everything the Games themselves they drag a little. We were just down there and hotdogs literally we sitting down like I. I still remember that one picture. I guess you tweeted hubs of the two of US looking absolutely exact exasperate. We've been talking to each other. We were just sitting. You were like sitting there in disbelief. How is this happening? I was actually sitting in the seats for a little bit. I WanNa see Vino pitch and because we were behind we had seats like ten rose up I wanna they say behind home plate and he just wants his movement. Because it just didn't seem real this time I never seen him before In person that was cool I was getting a little baseball nerdy out there and then I came down and you guys were passed out so that was bizarre. Funny thing here though when we were down there and I remember Ford just came up by himself. Just introduce himself to us. Yeah Yeah Nice Guy. Now hearing the adopt point like he wasn't you know he was. He was on our radar. But yeah so that was cool. I did mention injuries. We we just so this whole offseason feel like we talked that right before we started the show last week. How all the news broke the night before we record a podcast and we'd be set? We Oh good to go. I got it because James Paxton's injury brought up right after we recorded the show like an hour after the show is already done But he does have it. Seems like maybe we're doing doing this. Shit Oh my thing went out usually on my headphones. Great Okay. Whatever he's out at least three or four months could be longer could be less? Seems like it might be under three months Side Boris Scott. Boris trying to spin it. That he's he's the only gonNA be out for the first third of the of the season but that's what three or four months. He was trying to make it sound better in his his phrasing. But it didn't work out that way She's got a paradise assist up classic Paradis coolest. Shut your reading disgusting Prick who says that. How how do you pronounce? Don't give fuck out for three months. Got Assist he's got a cyst. Yes the classic a-rod says strata that no nine thinking of a hip sister. Yeah why when I hear cyst I think cancer and like I don't know why it's just how my brain is program. I think maybe one person in my life have had a system turning the cancer and it was like sound cancer. I guess so. He'll be up three or four months. Basically I was trying to have one of my. My friend is a Cairo. Quick Quick James Pricing does not have cancer cancer. Free will probably not not that we weren't. We can't confirm but probably not. She's a My Buddy Nick is a chiropractor so he actually has dealt with all the ship before so I was like hey. Can you just break this down in human terms for us Fanatic Kanat Mardi. Just keep going what. It's funny now. You laughing at muddy mix. I put him on the floor. He says extremely rare if they had lower back pain with pain down his leg and he probably had treated and it didn't get any improvement so the memory. Basically he had any any Yankee fans out there. If you need any expert analysis on James Paxton drea hubs his buddy nick. They went in and he said within within a month they'll start feeling better and then he can watch chiropractic adjustment videos to hustling relaxing. TJ Now eight on dominate Elmar Action. I'm not mad about this injury. It's someone was like. Oh my God what are you guys GonNa do. When I'm like? This has been the best option like our number three pitcher. It can be out for a few months. I think we're Lee Noah Paxon's GonNa do like we know exactly what isn't do now. We have an opportunity for someone else to try and pitch at maybe be better and like oh well we have reps for someone. That's not like we know he's into I'm fine with that. He'll get some rest will be fun. It was just a little discouraging. I it's like Oh my God here. Are we go again. Because you're but this is sort of a lingering lingering injury from twenty one thousand nine so in my mind this is just one more twenty nineteen injury and like now. We're starting fresh all those injuries or out of the way. We're GONNA get him back eventually. We're going to get Hicks back. So it does sound like they held onto half for this reason as cashman. Basically we said you got King Schmidt. Herman will be back. Probably about the same time that Paxton gets back pretty much lines up that they have enough if depth where I think they can survive this. Don't don't want Louis Sessa in fucking John Elisa No. I don't think they were sort of like you. Know thrown all those names doc is now it's Montgomery is the clubhouse leader. Yeah too I mean. He's been the number. He's been in the rotation good pitcher and twenty-seven the very good yes to build off of and Tommy John who knows it because back I mean we saw him for what a glimpse at the end of the year maybe for like he pitched fished a few innings. That's it yeah very exciting toward Montgomery Michael King. As big time here. He was mentioned in the people battle. Off of the bottom rotation Clarkston I think is not being named right now as a potential thing because he didn't pitch AAA last year. And you know the pitch a full season double but that's an in the lookout for for sure in spring that guy can make headlines quickly and be like oh well. This guy's you've seen guys get caller from AA to the majors before you know the AA AAA differences. This is crazy you can just go from WWLTV a major show. Ibn Look effort. Maybe Clark's meant to make some headlines. Debbie Garcia is going to be in the mix again. We'll see if he can actually become a starting starting pitcher and get his control down. All that walks a big problem with him but he has the stuff and he's a top one hundred prospect in baseball. So certainly good enough that the thing is Garrett Cole makes everything thanks so much easier when you have Garrett Cole is your one every you can lose your number three for a little bit and getting back like if it's Garrett Cole Severino two guys we just didn't have last year those guys are still. Oh the front of the rotation everything else falls into place to Schlep out cannot live to NOCCO come three like we're good and I honestly think jay caps can have have a good year last year. He had he had looked better. And you know you never know what's going you know I. I think that he'll be better. And because he's also pitching for either investing option to hit or like a new contract of a dozen hit so I think he's you know I think he knows how to pitch. He's a veteran. Crafty lefty whatever. That's been around for why I'm confident him. Having having a bounce back year there's also the person we're not talking about that can make everything better map lake. Great pitching pretty much you know. He's he's got this new you know he's bringing all this is technology and this new way of thinking Matt Blake with Jay Hat. Maybe Jay hat becomes a pretty fucking pitcher JOE per. That's perfectly in line. We reasoning that. He could become better. So it's GonNa be a map like I'm bored. Garrick obviously helps everything. Luis Severino healthy. We're basically at a two aces. People are like. Don't talk with. I was thinking about that the other day whereas I forgot like Lewis really was not a part of last year. All no more or less like. We're getting fewer turns to twenty seventeen twenty eighteen form. It is we got we have to to now aces in just one hundred three games last year without service every no or coal like this bad jay hat. I've I think I've been forgetting about Severino. Montgomery everyone the whole world is sleeping. Lewis Fuck pitch for them last year the SEC AC and her mom was sixty how many games seventeen eighteen. Yeah I think eighteen. How many games five? I believe it is sixty. I thought it was a half season. So it's like sixty to sixty two extra extra spring training for. Yeah and what I spend. Originally only with him was that he ran into innings limit problems at the end of the year. Well he's just GonNa cut those out with these with these suspended games and ideally would paxton. Hopefully this is. His is big injury that he's out for usually has one so yeah if he gets it out of the way we just healthy packing the rest of the way and contract year contract. Boris client in a contract. Attract here sounds good to me. I mean these are all listen to James Paxton being out until June July and I hope honestly I hope they go July. There's there's no need need to rush back like last year. Don't rush him back. I know but last year it was just everyone healthy for the frog. But let's get him unhealthy for October. Which is fine? But it's like I do like seeing these guys there early on you know just like the Fan India. Sure we already talked pitchers and catchers reporting Overall this is just a great day. I've already seen Garrett Cole Walk in ever seen him throw a bullpen. Even seem soft tossing. It's this like this awesome like here. We coldest look happy to be there and we got. I think Cashman is doing a press conference at like one thirty. I don't imagine he'll talk about anything crazy. Bill is introductory to the season for the most part. We do have a few more things to talk about here with the MLB going crazy and all that before that. Let's talk to you about Roman Roman. Most guys have tried different ways to last longer but thinking about baseball doesn't always work. The folks at Roman and online men's health company are changing the game with Roman swipes wipes the secret to longer-lasting Sex Roman swipes are clinically proven way. So last.
