"How about that and you know you can you. Could you could say that he's been a you can't as a bust of the year but he had bieber only pitched fourteen and there's no as the bus to there no of course not but he's only pitched for half the year is what i'm saying so like if you could say trump is not one of the bus of the year because his six weeks were amazing. Can't you make the same argument on the ground bieber. Or they just stay pitch more comparatively. I but i have a major problem with with the injuries. I know you subscribe to this do that. You don't wanna penalize a guy for the unexpected injury especially when that's lengthier. The lessons for trout. You raise them. You're right. they got worse and we should have known a little better to you. Can you really say that. I bet i whisper because of the high velocity. But i don't think that was the case with him and shame bieber that that came out of nowhere. Of course it did but the bottom line for a fantasy manager is if the got pitcher me. I don't care if it was because of injury or suspension or whatever it was he didn't pitch for me. The bottom line is you. Don't get an astros for finishing in second place. So i mean i've got a league where i'm not gonna win. Okay at steve's gonna finish second it's going to be who's going to win the league It's going to be our friends scott Who's a football guy. He's gonna win the baseball and he listens to the show. Scotty scott and he's going to win the league because part of the reason spratt police. And i'm not going to win. The league is because i have trout. And i have bieber now one anyway but i got thirty. Six games out of trout and fourteen starts out of bieber and then it became official. I couldn't compete. I and this is a debate. That i don't think has a right answer to it. I mean the you brought football. Under what i'll bring football into it. This is my. This is the consistency ratings question for me. Every single year people say why are you docking players for injury absences while i am dot com for injury absences. Because you didn't have them isn't consistency is about so you're from that argument dead on that. That's that's my point is i. don't i feel bad for. I mean they didn't play from me. I'm just. I think that if you if you bake an injury discount into the player on draft day. I'm a little more forgiving the judgment at the end of the year data affairs. Yes bieber and degrom. We do not expect to get hurt next year. Do we think either making thirty starts. We never talked about bieber. I still i am very worried about what jake grounds future holds Very worried about this sunday night. Matchup kyle gibson of you know what. I'm not worried because i don't even care anymore. Is it also red team. They're trying to win more than they lose their not. A bluff team phillies mets. Enjoy it it's on. Espn kyle gibson. Who's a lot of fun. Retired the first twelve cubs the other day and then couldn't retire any of the next row against richhill who's really old gibson and hill critical series. That has an absolutely critical series for those teams one of them needs to sweep the other and neither will because they're both incompetent teams so the point here is going to gain enough ground. We need to go like twelve and four to catch atlanta atlanta. Goes five hundred. I mean come on happening. The cardinals are going adam. Wainwright is beating walker bueller to not only friday night but in the one game playoffs. I kinda like that. Yeah you know that's happening fat. Yeah but he's beating bueller. I do kind of like that. that projection. Yeah but i'm saying that if he wants to get in. They need to take command immediately. 'cause you know i mean. Let's go to boston. After that and then there are three in milwaukee so the necessary to your your phillies however the done a stake they wanna hit her if the if the phillies sweep the mets. They're in prime position to take either division. You're playing nothing but home baltimore pittsburgh the following week yet but that's patriot lost three out of four to colorado okay. I'm not saying that. I see them doing it. I'm saying that if they did that. Move on trinity. I can't remember a team. I disliked as much as this current phillies tape. Oh great they got eighty five percent. Good for you. You got there on september fifteenth. You've got eighty five percent of vaccinate. Congratulations nowhere road trips. But yeah now you're giving on stripping your feeling about them from a fan's perspective from fantasy perspective if they do this that's really gonna matter to us. Those don't see catching the cardinals or the reds or the padres for that matter atlanta but they are trying to help somebody and fantasy other any pictures this weekend that you actually like the you think you would pick up and use. I proud on bail league washington. Oh yeah lower. I love lower against chicago at home. Lowers lineup yes. J. hap- he's been here in san diego at home with no krona worth. How about the turnaround. And i had him in. Labor is been. He's been pretty good pretty good. Yeah that's about it. yeah. I'm trying to scroll through to see else I don't see anything else that matters for starting pitcher. I mean at this point. Like i don't wanna say bring you know go with who you brought. But because i added eric lower and a key league where i need to win head to head. Oh trump's hernandez was my pick from the friday game pittsburgh home looking up pittsburgh always pittsburgh. That's why i brought up my eighty dollars. Just won a game in a similar league elliott hernandez is he going deep enough in games. Where you to enjoy him. No but it doesn't matter when it's that was the nfl tenor. Yeah give me the five hundred third. They're going to be quality home game. Pittsburgh come on bob now. No one brings more quality than kyle. Soppe he come on in. Come on down and ask a trivia your turn on the price just in.

"I'm i'm rooting for toronto. Like pretty much out so toronto. Try to be dangerous to man. Because robbie ray in a one game playoff against garrett cole i mean everybody would take coal but robbie ray would you take robbie ray. Rhetorical like who is having the better fantasy season call is is. They're basically tied right now in fantasy. And i why would that be because cole has more wins. Because he's an robbie ray has had man is on believable. You realize last year he walked forty five hitters in. Fifty one and two thirds. He's still hasn't worked. Forty five hitters this entire season in twenty nine starts. it's unbelie. i've never seen anything like it. Not only that if you look at his entire professional career dating back to two thousand ten as a member of the washington nationals. You're looking at the two point. Two three case for ninety has we're talking about that as seriously more than a full walk per nine innings lower than he's had in any of the of the other professional seasons he's got a six point three percent walk rate x nearly two percent beneath almost any other stoppings ad for any period of time in the whole pro career and we mentioned on the show before not. Nobody saw this coming. Nobody saw this kind of breakthrough but he did make the commitment to much better fitness and he put a little bit more polish on the slider. Got some more break to it. I think some of the rpm went up on there. I'd have to dig into where those are at the stage of the season. But he made some definite tweaks and sometimes when a player does this during spring training. That leads to a breakthrough to this level. None of us ought to this extent. There's no reason you should invest to the point. You expect this but kudos to him. And i hope he goes into next season with that same kind of approach. Same kind of sharpness control. I love it. This is just a great fantasy baseball story. So you darvish kind of did this a year or two ago where he just stop walking people robbie ray unbelievable season. He may win the cy young award depending how he finishes he may win. An important league depending on how he finishes and you as well. So i was looking at the walks leaders and obviously it's not rates that total walks but is there somebody on this listener blake. Snow already had his cy young season. He might be out for the rest of this season. Tunnel walks this year. I'm looking at the walks leaders and trying to figure out who could be next year to just stop walking. People and become a monster pitcher and lance mccullers is actually one walk off the major league lead. He has three twelve. Era whip one point two four which is still good. He's hard to hit. No home runs. No hits allowed. His biggest problem walks strikes people out. Lance mccullers could make that to make strides if you could just chop down the walks to be a top ten fantasy pitcher. Yep and mccullers case He's got that amazing curveball. They're few players in baseball of breaking pitch. That has the kind of swing and miss nature. That lance mccullers does and. That's the ticket to being a cy young caliber player. So when you talk upside. Lance mccullers belongs in the conversation. He's actually had a very good year. And you're right that. If he does improve that control next season he could take another major step. He's done it a couple of times before it has major league career in limited time but next year. Maybe he is. I like that as a candidate that navies and the phone saying what about me. And i'm gonna say no zach. You're not going to be a contender next. Exact davies leads. The major leagues walks with seventy right now and that's not very promising point. Five four winning exacts not giving up. either he's still calling go to voicemail already davies. He's hurt us. He's he's like really. I agree season should be over. Like snell's up to louis steel. That's a little bit troubling. That's very high walk rate for him. That's what's killing his web. But overall i mean he's rebounded after terrible april lewis was still a top twenty pitcher for you in two thousand twenty two drafts close right. It's close. i'd like to get him in there. Because you know how much respect. I have for the change. He has got one of the game's best. Anybody i can think here i would take. I would take the i think. That's tyler maley calling yourself. Oh now saying what about me. Kim breakout next year. You can read got next year. Put that what's what's really you know what's really fun is when somebody calls your house and then calls your cell phone right afterwards. It's just relentless tyler care. Wait be half an hour. I like see. I'm i'm with you. I think you take the more recent returns over the full year. you don't even feel bad pandemic. i know some people don't believe it. Our phones are gonna ring while we're doing shows from home and office. Kyle's his waterlogged basement and lego destroyed the better off the phone rings off the hook soviet my i was going to ring any second and i got the worst on this one is normally. I could hit the little volume all thing on the stand. I have on my desk but this case my son has my has the headset so i can't do anything. It's not shutting it off. Gosh amazon delivery pose tyler. Maley would be on my list of potential breakouts next year as well. Freddie pearls has already broken out but he's actually twenty-first in the majors in walks curl. If he gets the volume boosts next year could be in there so that might not even be some sort of tweet. That might just be more trust in giving him more starts. Peralta or lewis. Stephen next year drafts. A say peralta just because of the filthy all around stuff. It's one hundred and thirty three innings. I think next year he could get up to one seventy five. They can push a little bit. More question would be whether he can handle it all right enough of all the jocularity. Now it's time for well you know. I guess we could do. The mike. Trout might trust for the season. So is joe. Adele like some. Maybe there's a newsmakers. I wrote a piece about trout. We've talked about trout. Ad nauseam on this show and i said late. Second round early third. I said he's not the bus of the year. I'm not gonna tell you who it is. You need to read the store to figure that out but just give me briefly Because you know we gotta tied in. The news might trout for you. Is he better than amid second round. Pick for you and romeo and or points leaked drafts next year. So this is another case. Rather have him in the non traditional rodeo in our game compared to something deeper also i would rather have him though. So for example labor talloires. Much less likely. Al only much less likely if it's sabre metrically inclined to have told you that..

"Sorry i'm eric arvo. fantasy focus. Baseball is presented by linked in jobs. We talk about how great franks rondeau is so. I'm rooting for him. To hit home. Runs against my favorite team on wednesday night. And he does and they blow to more saves he's got like fifty family members in the stands of philadelphia because he's from new jersey which is philadelphia close to and he's laughing any smiling and he's dancing around any points in the dugout. He's having the best time of anybody right now for a terrible team buddies on one of my fantasy teams. I am rooting for frank. Swindell and let's we're way past the yellow student and by the way folks is unbelievable beyond clinched at this point. We're has that. Say hello to twenty twenty one and you know i hate cops but making it say hello to twenty twenty one version of two thousand eighteen luke voight. Wow and by the way he couldn't will have turned the career into what luke voice has become. Well i my follow up to that is. What has luke's voids career become. What is okay. But when it's twenty twenty one. And i'm talking about twenty eighteen there've been chunks of projections. Let's assume that both luke void and frank swindell are starting first baseman next season maybe for the yankees and cubs maybe elsewhere. Maybe the yankees have to move voight. Who knows if they bring rizzo back so give them each like five hundred at least five hundred plate appearances. Give me their numbers. That's interesting i hadn't thought of void. I thought of other like christian walker types. Who toiled in the minors forever but voigt did to are either these guys hitting thirty home runs and batting two eighty next year. I don't while void no way on the two eighty batting average. The problem i have now is just the injuries. I i do question that he's had a difficult time staying on the field. That's not just the season two. So let's say he's in the fifties. I'd probably give him twenty five. Ish maybe up to thirty home runs as a projection line coming off this year. Probably a little more optimistic about dell hit two seventy because of the contact nature of his game. But i don't know if he gets beyond twenty five home runs and the allies hot realize voight lead the majors in the two months season last year with like twenty two so project in two thousand five over six months even with injuries is rather low. Isn't it your forty mark. The injuries are that big of a problem. You're right he could hit forty runs if we have good luck in the health department and by the way we gotta talk about the fact that two of the yankees who had major injury questions coming into this year had no issues at all in aaron. Judge giancarlo stanton and we've seen historically guys like evan. Longoria became a much healthier player. Ian kinzler did it despite having an injury prone label so anything can really happen. You're right void. Couldn't forty home runs. I think he's likely to fifties batting average guy. In the best case scenario you brought up a good point here. And i think it's important. Let's talk about the yankees. Then what did the yankees look like in twenty twenty two for fantasy purposes. Where are you taking judge because he has proven to be healthy player this year. Is that break the streak does that. Make us rethink him. You know glacier taurus. The power just gone what he has stolen. I think fifteen basis. That's interesting mayo's got to be better and this mean i'm looking at least now. Judge is the best player on the team. Lemay was second because it does take walks but no power. He'll score runs stanton as power. Joey gallo. he'll be back is power and but he's the strikeouts my goodness he's already one hundred ninety. Five strikeouts your catcher. So tourists playing second. I assume are sell. Gimme gimme a look at the yankees next year. I'm curious what you think. I'm curious to see whether this experiment now shifting lemay third gio or shell at a shortstop. It's gonna stick for next year by the way the yankees could dive into the shortstop agent. Bowl it's very deep as we all know. I think that is probably what's happening by. They're getting hobby by. That's good luck with it. That's my yankees think is a fit. I don't but they might. I'm not going to dispute the possibility. But i think the yankees are on cory seager. That's just my opinion they left. You hit hitter. that's for sure. Yeah and i think that's the key here. Is that the yankees. Want to balance out the lineup. That's a prime opportunity to do. The mayor slides the third seger take short towards those back to second or maybe he's under a little bit less pressure. If i want praise anything that tourist did this year he's fourteen of seventeen and stolen bases that's encouraging because if you add twenty twenty five homer pop to ten stolen bases even next season. That's a nice bounce back on a year is garrett cole. The only yankee worthy of going in the first five rounds next season silence. I think that judge gets close but yet we're not going durable where we can't call judge durable. We're talking about you. And you're talking about traditional rodeo. Well points leagues. You'd be better right. I also think there are cases to be made for some of the others lemay hughes rebound prospects get a little better when you reward him for the disciplined numbers. Joey gallo becomes a little more attractive in the non traditional rodeo. Probably not points because of the case. But yeah i i see where you're at here but i think veteran points than rodeo because batting average were so for example the six by six pitch a lot where on bass and slugging come in he is hugely more valuable format. Not it's interesting. I mean you wouldn't expect his yankee team naps so many question marks. But they're here. We are and what a race the teams in the alleys for two wild card spots. I love this idea asked on youtube. Yes it's dragging a little bit but it looks like oakland's out seattle. God bless been great season. Davey but i don't think you're sticking around here so it's the three teams in the american league. I don't know david soloist. Let's go to all our friends. In steve your oriole's song But yeah i mean..

"Robbie freaking ray comes out and shove today with just the expected amount of strikeouts thirteen strikeouts walks only one run around run allowed on a solo shot to mike sannino. So taking all together is a very good outing for bluejays. Starting pitching this series and they kind of held down an offense in the region so it's one of the best in baseball. They're known for being a pitching first team but this year they've really stepped up offensively and they have the last few years that they've had success going into the postseason and you saw the blue jays do their best against one of the best teams in baseball. And that's exactly what you want. We were always putting asterix next to the performance of the last couple of series. You know you get the baltimore orioles and everyone knows who they are. You get the yankees. And they're struggling. You get the oakland athletics. And they're also struggling. The bottom is kinda fallen out for them but the rays were a hot team in. Yeah maybe last. they've lost. I think five of their last seven games so not as hot as it could be but bottom line. The blue jays beat good team with phenomenal. Starting pitching which was incredible to watch -absolutely. And you know what in may i think we could all agree that pitching primarily the bullpen. But even starting pitching was it was a disaster and it was probably one of the weaknesses of the team. But i'm willing to say that the rotation bluejays have right. Now is probably one of the best that i've seen in the last five plus years. And when you when you look at it you have an all star burritos in on all star in review your robbie ray who easily win the cy young alec manoa who's inconsideration. I think for rookie of the year and stephen matt's who's sub to think since post all-star break and look what they did against the tampa bay rays only five runs allowed all series bluejays. You look at that and you think that's an easy sweep. Unfortunately two of those runs came when they were shut out and the blue jays weren't really able to get any offense going in that second game but pitching was absolutely fantastic. And i mean minoa ten strikeouts. You mentioned that he. I think he was actually perfect. Going into the fourth or the fifth when he allowed that base runner jose burritos even though he did suffer some abdominal tightness or some some strain there. He has not as of right now. Gone for any imaging which is a good sign. Perhaps it's just a. He didn't feel too good he. Steve sits the rest of the game. Spends the night re recovering. Hopefully able to make that second start or that next star even for him. Four strikeouts only allowed a home run which unfortunately that loss was charged to him but he still was absolutely fantastic and two runs over seven innings or or one run over seven innings to brioche and then one was charged a meza to runs over a full game that with an offense that the blue jays have. That's an easy win. I think and they didn't win..

"A hot take. No it's not a heartache. He said it that way because like it's almost like people are afraid or will argue that a west coast team outside of mike trout and shohei otani could have like the best anything like mookie betts. Yeah whatever there's guys over here that are that are as good just not. It's not sexy for one of the best players to be on the oakland a.'s But it's real. It's very very feel that way. And i think we're getting away from that. I think we're getting away from people. Fans not acknowledging good good players in the west coast good players on small marketing. People knocking shohei ohtani because the angels suck like those people exist they breathe air that other people could be breathing like they're gonna fight that because of the team what you sound like absolute ask clown like there's no way you can watch not olsen do what he does an watch any other baseball and think that there's multiple people that are better than him at what he does ostensibly defensively. Not that vlad as anything to write home about. But he's gonna be in the conversation. But i mean it's it's vladi. Muncie freddy freeman mandelson. That's the conversation. Whatever order you wanna put them in they. Obviously the conversation obviously starts with vladi. But after that. Like muncie. Mattio freddy freeman who defensively at all those dudes. Oh it's no question you're taking mandelson. That's not even like an opinion. I think everyone everyone would take matt olsen number one defensively. I would. Yeah who wouldn't would so from there. It's and i've just. I've always been this way like. I don't get enamored with the insane ridiculous offensive output like. I'm a fan of balance. I appreciate a full and complete ballplayer. And when i say full and complete if five is is median. Okay is gladis offense. A nine point five but his defense a four point five. If so i give you a point. And a half offense to raise his defense appoint and a half to make him just slightly above average and give me still a killer killer at bat every time. Be the power threat. He's going to be maybe he's not going to be a triple. A perennial triple crown threat. But you're telling me he's not a liability defensively and i'm not saying glad liability defensively. I'm just saying raising the completeness of a ballplayer..

"Okay one last thing. I wanted to mention just as podcast. Because i thought it was cool Mlb pr recently announced The a stat for viewership on tv for baseball this year compared to twenty twenty National television in twenty twenty one on. Espn sunday night. Baseball viewership is up. Twenty six percent Fox saturday baseball up thirty two percent. Tbs up forty nine percent fox sports up seventy eight percent and we'll be network up thirty four percent And they'll be tv It in two thousand twenty one. It was the most watched first half in history Six billion are more than six billion. Total minutes watched with his which is sixty seven percent more than twenty twenty In two thousand and twenty one they have the top ten most watched days ever the top four most watch games ever like a lot of stats right there. But you gotta be happy with how that turned out I think baseball is on the right. Track were marketing players. Were marketing guys'll shohei ohtani Bringing new people in the game My sister who never watches baseball she brought up one day. Shohei otani and i was like you know who that is and we were just talking about it. Because i think there was a special on. Cbc or something. Both shohei ohtani So obviously this stuff is getting more people to think about baseball. Talked baseball. watch baseball. But it's exciting. And i can't wait to see what the second half has in store even. If it's not gonna go that we wanted to for the blue jays so much for a dying sport i in fact the viewership. So yeah i mean that's very cool in terms of that. I mean i'm sure. The ratings are up this year compared to last year for the jesus. Well i mean it's just it's all it's all working right now in leg. I think we're on the right track edges. It feels like every team now or more teams are getting that young stud that you can market around the center that franchise around with so we have. We all know our story with leidi. We all know other people like otani. You know doing things that we haven't seen since babe ruth people making the argument that it's better than babe ruth we know. People like wander franco who just came up with tampa bay fernando tatis as much as ronald. The kunia just tore his acl.

"One ninety two. There's a decent chance you do and when you want to look at that regardless of where the jay sit to get anywhere close to. Maybe i don't know at least eighty five wednesday ninety. You're going to need to go on a really big run and it's it's not i you know it's not impossible but it's you need a lot of you need more than one lengthly winning streak and that's what you're saying. Mark is that you need to go on run and you need to go on more than one run per. perhaps you know. A couple of people's spitballing. Some numbers you know going. Forty seven and twenty eight out of the all star break again not impossible but what the way. The jays have played this year. We know that they've been inconsistent. Is it something that you can really bank on them doing. Obviously anything can turn around. The jas are still you know. Couple pieces away from i. Guess being more complete of a team. They're going to be making a couple more moves before the end of the month at the trade deadline. So that's where you look at it and you. That's where you can. I guess argue to that point saying are we really that confident based on what we've seen since april i if that if this team is capable of doing that especially on a tough schedule coming out of the all star break and you know just a teen that's been consistent like i just mentioned so pre all star break the jason. The fifth hardest schedule in baseball are no in the al story with opponents. Winning percentage of at least five ten post all-star break the jaiswal of the third easiest schedule in the al with opponents winning percentage of four ninety one so while the schedule is not going to be the easiest. It's not going to be through the roof difficult what we saw at the beginning of the year. So that's why it's going to be interesting to see. How were you know how confident the jays are. And maybe the jays are confident that they can at least one of simeon array of. Maybe that's why they're going to be locked then but yeah going back to what we were talking about. How do you tell your fans even after this offseason. You signed.

"Both those guys are incredibly valuable pieces. And if we're looking at the reality of the team right now the blue jays aren't well winning the world series this year like that's like no one would disagree with me and saying that they aren't winning the world series this year. The argument is you sell off. Simeon and ray you get prospects back you even get. You could get major league talent back. That's ready to compete. You know next year you build the team up to win next year. You're not gonna win this year even if you make it into the postseason you're not gonna win this year so you sell off those guys to make a run for it in future years. How do you feel about that idea person. Because i think there is some validity to. I don't i. I don't think the blue jays are gonna do this in any world. I think that you know. They want to show confidence in the team that they have. They don't wanna be selling off guys when they got talent like vladimir guerrero junior bobryshev. They don't want to be telling these young guys got to take a step back and wait a year I don't think it's going to happen. But i think there could be some benefits to it. Happening yeah This is it's a tough one because as as you don't want it to be possible or true there is. I guess you can't rule it out. I mean this team is far from even being a lock to make that. Second wildcard spot. We know that there's a good chance that easily miss out of the playoffs this year and of course if that's the case and you don't move people simeon array. Those guys are gonna be walking into the free agent market and they're likely going to get paid. We saw what robbie ray did yesterday. And we've seen what worker simeon's that all your both of them. Especially robbie ray or the turnaround that both of them have had and it's a tough one but you know i..

"Basics of what we already mentioned in terms of how he's a top ten talent so it'll be interesting to see if governor hoaglund couldn't rehab if he can repair that album go back to the form that he was and if not i guess a well but the jays take a gamble on it and that's the beauty of the mlb draft is. You probably won't see the sky for at least two to three years. At least i mean. Obviously alex montoya was a different case. But especially somebody who underwent tommy. John surgery he has a long road of recovery ahead of him and a lot of development ahead of him as well. So we're going to see what happens with him and You know you look back in a couple of years and we will know if it was a good pick or not because we have to see everything like that so far. But you mentioned at the jay's do have two picks i believe they have one more pick I think it's in the nineties. From what i remember and right now. They're doing round two as we record this episode of our podcast. So we'll see what happens there. But either way i still like the idea of the it'll be dropping during the all star break and I think a lot of people to didn't realize that round one started yesterday. I think a lot of people were kind of caught off guard by that. But it's interesting. And it's all part of the all-star activities now so we have a couple of good days ahead of us but it's always cool. I guess seeing the draft in terms of people getting called obviously wasn't virtual like it was last year where in this case two people. Were able to boo commissioner rob manfred when he stepped up to the podium so i thought that was pretty cool. I know we see it in a lot of sports. By knowing that you know the decisions he's made in terms of how he's viewed as a commissioner in all like the big four north american sports. I think raw manfred is pretty much. The leader of the list in terms of commissioners who people hate. Or he's up there at least so it was cool to see. Yeah roger goodell's well yes so there's a there's a few of them there is a few of them but manfred. Of course we know what he's done some decisions interesting decisions that he's made over the past couple of years so either way good to see the draft underway and. I'm curious to see the jas pick in their next pick in the nineties and we'll see what happens with that but yeah governor hoaglund high upside and of course it's a little bit of a and time will tell the of this draft picks gonna work out or not for them who's interesting to see all the mascots dancing around in the theater. Whatever they were holding. I guess who's in colorado. It wasn't the they'll be network studio. But i liked that. They're doing that. I like that. It's no longer this private tiny event. That only diehard baseball fans care about. They're trying to develop it into something akin to what the draft is and other sports and it's never going to be the same thing because the players don't go straight to the the the majors they go straight to the teams that you cheer for. They are like you mentioned at best two years away. That's a lot of time to wait for. And that makes it kind of less exciting than than what other sports. But i still think that it can be developed and and worked on to the point where you know fans do get more excited about. I think this year was the right step in the in the right direction. One hundred percent so before we move on though..

It's a strange trade market for starting pitchers in MLB
"Say a strange. <hes> trade market for starting pitchers which is really for this summer is at the center of the trade market. I was looking at you know sort of broad strokes. There are a couple of potential free agents who are available in Trade Zach Wheeler the mets but he's coming off the injured list to start on Friday. Jason Vargas of the mets Madison Bumgarner is a tweet it out yesterday. These like the image on on Mardi Mais flies family picture in back to the future. He's disappeared slowly. We right from the trade market. I'm I know that the giants loss yesterday but I think in less the giants are swept by San Diego over the weekend I think Bumgarner staves with the giants and they keep him for the rest of the urine they ride out how while they're playing now. Because Far Han Zaidi I either had a baseball OPS first year there. It'd be so difficult for him to continue to try to do business in that town in that organization if he pulled up the roots of this great run that they've been on without <hes> you know giving him a chance has to play it out and so bumgarner disappearing but they're a bunch of starting pitchers being talked about who are under teen control beyond this your Trevor Bauer Stroman Noah Syndergaard Robbie Ray the diamondbacks Mike Minor. Enter the Rangers Matthew Voided the Tigers and there are fewer buyers in there are those type of pitchers. The Astros are going to get a starting pitcher Yankees Braves phillies Oakland twins. Perhaps maybe the brewers although I wonder her if if they would necessarily be a big buyer so it's it's a really kind of a strange pitching market because you would assume that moves you're going to be made but it really comes down to okay which of the sellers blue jays the Indians maybe blink a little bit and come off. They're really high demands to try to bridge the gap with some of the buyers what you read on where some of these guys might land yeah. That's I think your take on the teams. Every eighteen you listed seems likely to at least want to acquire a starter. They want necessarily all do so obviously but I think every one of the has an actual knee and his position in a position in the standings word probably makes sense to do so. I wanted to just jump back to Bumgarner for one second. I agree with you. I date that the public reaction to them trading bumgarner would be very poor right now. The starting seem is not actually that good though they've been outscored they unless they look been outscored on the season. It's really unlikely that they're gonNA make the playoffs Joe Sheehan wrote about this in his newsletter his email newsletter yesterday to talk about how various sites fan graphs in baseball perspectives of the giants playoff playoff odds is extremely low.

"Got a good game today battle left-handers drew Pomeranz coming off the disabled list against Robbie. Ray Robbie Ray is, as well, set a tough competitor. Robbie Ray in his life as six hundred sixty five innings. He's a lefty and he struck out. Eight hundred you need to get ahead in the count with this guy runners on base you still to twenty one runners in scoring position to nineteen first time through the lineup yet. One, sixty two often second time through to thirty five but the first and second time you hitting one ninety five against him and that is what he's all about. Because he's made nine starts. He's gone. Six full two times with one quality start the other games, five or five plus so they get them out of their first couple of times through the lineup. He's out and you get into the bullpen with him. But the team is six and three in his nine starts. He's gotten his last three decisions in four. Games. And the team is one is last four so Ravi, raise a tough customer. The giants have seen a lot of him in the past, and we'll see what happens here. Seven starts against the giants over the last two years. He's three and overall eleven starts. He's foreign one with a two eighty nine hundred run average and against the giants as I said he's a strikeout guy, sixty two innings and eighty three strikeouts. For him. Robbie Ray six home runs in his last five starts a one ninety eight earned run average twenty seven innings pitched thirty five strikeouts and ten walk. So he is absolutely a tough customer. And Pomeranz is going to have to be on his game. Today, hasn't seen the diamondback since twenty sixteen but Owen three against Arizona with an eight fifty one earned run average. But looking up and down the lineup. Adam Jones five for twenty two. He's never given up a home run to any of these time in backs. So the lefty comes into day off the injured list to go against. Robbie Ray Aaron Altair's gonna join us in interesting this morning. Of course, we talked to Aron tear on Friday, and he was designated for assignment by the Phillies. The giants picked them up, now, of course, the giants have MAC, Williamson here Tyler Austin is here. And we all wondered, what are you doing with Aaron al-tair? Well, the answer became clear today when Pomerantz was put on the active list, Aaron al-tair was designated for assignment. So as Andy Bagley says the whole hope for the giants and getting all tear was to get him through waivers. If they could they hopefully clear, and then he can be out to triple A, and that was the point all along. So they can work with him at AAA. As another outfielder for the giants there. So Aaron Altair's DFA by the giants, and they're hoping that they can get him through waivers, and everything else, and get him to Sacramento and keep him in the organization is a big tall kid is a good athlete. And I had a chance to talk with himself, even though he is in limbo right now. I think he's going to stay with the giants. I think he really will. He's got a good shot at doing that. And if he does, I think we're going to hear from him in the future. So Aaron al-tair joins us. So Aaron how are you? Going.
