"It's been a disappointment as far. I mean Matt Carpenter Tyler Neil Dylan Carlson Lane Thomas. They're all hidden under two hundred They haven't put it together at all. So is the offense good enough to meet up with this rotation and ultimately get this team to the playoffs. They do have a five game set coming up with Milwaukee in September a couple of. doubleheaders a single game. Those are makeup games and Certainly go a long way enter division only into who will make the postseason but I know it's going to be tough with all the doubleheaders that's going on but the cardinals don't play another series against the team. That's above five hundred after the twins games this week coming up here they got the Tigers, red spruce pirates, royals, brewers. So the schedule certainly favors the Saint Louis Cardinals and that's where the conversation and becomes the four five matchup because of. The San. Diego padres are pretty much entrenched in that fourth slot. So it comes down to the second in the NFL second in the NFL central who has that better record and who will match up with the padres in the first round as opposed to being that. You know that six seed going against that third division winner that's potentially the cubs or the brave sell pick your poison there whether it's the padres, cubs or braves but it certainly a matchup game that will be interesting to see as we continue to move down the stretch. After the cardinals here next up on the list of potential playoff percentages, the San Francisco giants fascinating there at sixty seven, point, three percent obviously Mike you stransky has been one of the best players he's pushed Fernando devotees junior and mookie betts when it comes to war and as well as MVP conversation. Let's see here Brandon Bell has three thirty seven for them. Donovan Solano was it three, fifty three. So those three guys at the top of the lineup have been over achieving in really carrying this team because the bullpen has not been great I mean closer trevor got and fellow reliever Tyler Rogers combined two and five with a seven, four four t are A. Couple of starters have struggled forum. Johnny Cueto Kevin, Guzman Trevor, K. Hill. They gotta continue to push and get things rolling their big series down the stretch comes in the middle of September here over the next couple of days against the San Diego padres they also finished with three games against the Padre. So six against the padres over the next couple of days and the next couple of weeks could go a long way in determining their standing because it does look like la one San Diego to. So the best would be ls third slot and you're looking at that wildcard seed of number seven or number eight and a match up against the top team in the national. League following the giants here we have the Miami Marlins they currently own a forty five percent chance to make the postseason. They are nineteen in eighteen as if time of recording the Atlanta braves are hammering the Marlins, they've scored twenty five runs right now at the point here were rat and today's show so they'll be nineteen in nineteen, but at five hundred, they're right in the conversation for that eight spot in the playoffs and would be the eighth playoff team if the playoffs started today and they're led by their starting pitching three nine four Uehara rookie starter Sixto Sanchez as well as Trevor Rogers have been super impressive they've combined for a two to five era through seven starts. Will they be able to keep it going I think. So six does one of the most impressive prospects that has come up major league baseball in a long long time. I mean, he was an Phillies farm system guy traded him for jt real Mutoko I was a huge Sixto Sanchez. I went to go watch him pitch and Lakewood in high a ball I was looking forward to go watch and impeach and AA reading Pennsylvania and then they ship him out ultimately to get jt the best catchers or the best catcher in baseball right now so I don't regret the move for them, but it is certainly frustrating watching pitching Ninja and watching highlights. Of six though Sanchez just making major league hitters look foolish at such a young age and throw one hundred miles an hour. But he's GONNA be tough to deal with over the next decade for anybody in Major, League baseball and he's certainly impressive from the right side. Offensively, the marlins aren't very good. They don't hit much their twenty third in runs per game. Let's see. Corey. dickerson is six home runs but he's hitting just three thirty two they did add starling Martin aged who should help the offense and should help the outfield positions. Of course they're big series is that saved one with the Philadelphia Phillies we spoke about and they're they're fun to watch I mean I've had a great time watching Miami play watching Sixto Sanchez throw watching a lot of these guys you know try to make a move here it's been fun to watch. So after my Miami, next up is Milwaukee they currently let's see. Here have a forty three percent chance to make the post season they find themselves at nineteen and twenty two. Their bullpen is their strengthened as the thirteenth best era in the majors, but the sixth win probability added. So they've been great when Games are close and have given up runs when things have been much more apart. But their offense is just I mean, it's not good. They're hitting two twenty, one none of their eight appear none of their eight regulars hitting over to fifty as of Tuesday. So you would just think. I mean. Christian. Yelich. She sit in two thirteen. Yeah. He's got nine home runs but the guys in MVP last year the year before, and now he's sitting in two thirteen. So it's been a struggle for them down the stretch so that five game series with St Louis Looms Large of course but certainly there on the outside looking in in Milwaukee next step we got the New York mets they currently have a thirty percent chance to make the postseason they are. Let's see twenty and twenty four Jacob degrom obviously remains the best pitcher in baseball he's got a One six nine era but they've only won three of his eight starts this year. They haven't been able to parlay that effectiveness on the mound into the win column and that's frustrating for mets fans because that's really the only game. You can put you know count on a w in the five days because outside of the ground, the rest of the rotation is six and twelve with a six, six, four era. So you've got the best pitcher in baseball and then nobody else helping them out, and that's where it starts and stops with the mets. Starting rotation of course, they got series with phillies coming up series with the MARLINS coming up but they've struggled against both of those teams year to date, and unless they turn things around and unless that starting pitching starts to be more effective, they're looking at finishing under five hundred and being home come playoff time, and now the last two teams are three teams here. That are absolutely huge long shots but we'll talk about and briefly the Colorado Rockies at twenty and twenty two they only have twenty five percent chance of making the playoffs just due to the scheduled down the stretch. Of course, they're going to be facing off against the dodgers but also the giants they're going to need. To beat up on those other teams in the division, the giants in the diamondbacks specifically through the stretch here. So the rockies are nine and nineteen cents, an eleven and three start we knew they started hot, but ultimately were unable to continue that moving forward and they're heading away from chorus field is a corporate because they're hitting just two twenty, three on the road. So it's it's worse than normal. They had to thirty away from chorus field last year this year it's all the way down to two twenty three, which is going to put their odds at just about twenty five percent. Next step we got the Cincinnati Reds my breakout team in the national, League didn't get the memo this summer. There are at a twenty percents to make the postseason at eighteen and twenty four, of course, Trevor Bauer at the top of the rotation some of the other guys up there sunny gray have been effective Jesse winkler in the ball offensively but just the rest of the offense they they can't get it going I mean the reds are twenty ninth and runs per game they are their second and walk rate but..

"Thanks for listening everybody here in the third segment, we're GONNA talk about both wildcard racists we're going to dive into a little bit more detail I know for Monday's episode, we'd talk across all the standings discussed the division leaders where the Playoffs are at, but I wanted to dive in a bit more as we're under the three week mark here until the playoffs start into these wildcard races and the reason i. said that at the end of segment number two, there was because the American League wild-card and the American League playoff teams I. Still Think are very much set in stone and the reason I say that because even though the. Yankees have been in an absolute free fall and haven't been able to figure things out. Now for a couple of weeks here they did win tonight on Wednesday nights I'm recording this late here Wednesday. So they are twenty two and twenty one currently in the eight spot in the American League for the playoffs. However, the only team said they're basically fighting against for this position there's three of 'em. Really and none of them should are any good. I mean none of them were anywhere close to playoff conversation had the beginning of the year and that's the Baltimore Orioles at twenty and twenty to the Detroit Tigers and nineteen, twenty two and the Seattle Mariners and nineteen and twenty three, and basically we're looking at the Yankees compared to the Orioles Tigers and mariners in regards to a potential playoff spot. There shouldn't even be much of a conversation here and the numbers on ESPN as I'm looking here on the standings as the playoff prediction percentage is over on the right hand side, they have the Yankees still in an eighty nine point three percent chance to make the post season. So we know who the teams are going to be we we said that for two weeks now you got the raise. Jason, Yankees, coming out of the American League east the White Sox, in the twins out of the central and you're two teams out of the West or the athletics in the Astros now, there is going to be some jockeying for position even through the four through six slots, the Blue Jays continue to play good baseball but that Indians twins white sox race is going to be key down the stretch because. The team who wins the central could be the to the next one could be the four, and then the last one could be the six. So it doesn't look like they're going to line up to play against each other, but they could basically be taken on everybody else in the American league and we could see that central division really established themselves. So as much as New York continues to struggle here as much as everybody's talking about boone trying to figure things out void. Sad some struggles recently, they were winning the other day six. Two and lost the game they had lost one, two, three, four, five, six straight before their win against the Blue Jays tonight in eight out of nine, and they're still a ninety percent chance to make the postseason. So if you're a Yankees, Fan just exhale knowing that you gotta get through the next two to three weeks. You're still looking at a matchup based conversation when it comes to that first round best of three, you gotta get your pitching, right but Garrett Cole going twice in a five game series even if you do end up. The eighth seed ultimately play in those Tampa Bay rays is the one seed you gotta feel good about coal possibly went into two games and only having to steal one out of the other three with the rest of your rotation. So what I wanted to do much more in this segment is discussed the National League because there are a ton of teams in the conversation around the National League playoff spot, and specifically the wildcard. Some of these teams we discuss could be the second seed could be out of the play offs win their. Division still I mean the National League. West is really the only division that's out of reach right now, and that's what the A. Dodgers at thirty one in twelve everybody knows them being one of the top teams in baseball but let's kind of start from the top down I. Mean Let's touch on those. Philadelphia. Phillies right off the top based on their current playoff odds here of eighty nine point five percent They are fourth in the majors in runs per game only behind the dodgers padres in Braves Harper, Rio Mutel, hoskins continue to. Push the offense Zack Wheeler has obviously been an overachiever for them this year four, no, two, four, seven era, his strike outs are down, but his double play balls are up. So it really hasn't been status quo for the rest of his career certainly has been effective. The main weakness however for the phillies is that bullpen they still lead the majors or I guess our last in the majors however you WanNa look. At, it with a seven point, zero, two era even though they made a ton of trades at the deadline, they added Brandon Workman who's been salad is closer but a lot of the other guys they added haven't been successful. So it's going to be a tough stretch for them here in September with seven games in five days coming up against the marlins mentioned that briefly earlier in the episode, but that's going to. Go a long way to determining both the marlins and the phillies outcome in regards to whether or not they make the postseason but the phillies there odds are pretty good right now at twenty one and eighteen based on where the National League as and based on where the NFL East is to get into the playoffs next up in the highest odds here as potentially making it that could still fall out is the. Saint Louis Cardinals. They're currently at an eighty percent chance to make the playoffs at eighteen and seventeen there led by their rotation, which has the fifth best era in all of baseball. It's a Lo- it's allowing the lowest batting average as well as the third Lowest Whoa Book in Major League Baseball they've had Brad Miller overachieved for them offensively he's taken over the D. H. duties the philly hidden to eighty two with. Seventeen walks and twenty two strike outs. So He's been very effective offensively for them but their weakness overall is that offense outside Brad. Miller Paul Goldschmidt..

"That got me thinking what was my longest played appearance in regards to pitch count and I mean I gotta be honest with you right so even if you run. The. Count full you fell off one, maybe two pitches you're looking at a seven pitch at-bat that's not out of the ordinary. A lot of players are a lot of guys will do that. If you play long enough if you play travel ball all across the country games in the summer, the fall of the spring, all of the above you're going to have seven eight, nine pitch at-bat. But typically when you hit double digits, you get to eleven twelve that's when things in the dugout start to pick up once again, people start to. Get excited. There's a line there were like come on guy just put the ball in play. Let's get this going. What are we doing here? I mean just square it up either strike out throat and play, and then you get to pitch thirteen, fourteen fifteen and all of a sudden you find yourself on the other side going, hey, you know what? Let's see how long this can go let's see this guy keep throwing it in the zone. Let's see. You keep spoiling good pitches and ultimately it. Let's see how this turns out so. I think my longest at-bat was probably twelve or thirteen pitches. If I have to remember it was down in Texas one summer I think we were in Louisiana happily playing the ace is who was out of Louisiana in the Texas League and it had a twelve thirteen pitch at bat ultimately I think I flew out to right field. Same thing that kid just kept pounding the zone I have fallen off breaking balls and I kept chasing everything that wasn't in the zone because ultimately I didn't want to get called out on close third. Called Third Strike After pitch number twelve wanted to walk I was essentially up there to put the ball in play and if it fell in, it fell in but ultimately, I couldn't even imagine get into nineteen pitches and the record here we have Let's see if I could pull it up. Yes. giants Brandon Belt had twenty one pitch at bat against Angels Pitcher Jamie Berea in two, thousand and eighteen. He had twenty one pitches and it lasted thirteen minutes was the most on record for a plate appearance since they started keeping page counts for specific blade appear it's kind of fascinating. Oh man shout out to Thi-. Bar Winning the battle after nineteen pitches. But I just thought that was fascinating and wanted to bring that up here. Another headline that's recently come out as Justin Timberlake. That's right JT. My man, the entertainer he is investing in the effort to bring a major league baseball team to Nashville Tennessee timberlake says quote I am thrilled to be involved in the movement bring Major League Baseball to the Great State of Tennessee. So basically what I just said, Timberlake, is somebody that's world known huge in the area and the region in the state he supports baseball and all other things other handful of. Investors trying to get a team to Nashville, Tennessee certainly doesn't look like it's going to happen in two, thousand, twenty one or even twenty, twenty two but I do think it's in that conversation of happening soon after depending on if they're able to get enough funding to build a stadium where they going to put it in regards to the city is going to be close to the Titans Stadium are they're going? To do kind of one area of professional sports. That's what Philadelphia does. They have the basketball and hockey arena right next to the baseball and football stadiums they all share kind of one huge extended parking lot. So no matter the event that's taking place there's always enough parking. There's always enough tailgating it's pretty well done. So they need to figure all of that stuff out in Tennessee and in Nashville and ultimately. If, they're going to make a move but having the name and having the image of the of Justin timberlake behind you as you're starting to try to implement baseball is certainly one that I think would benefit you I I mean myself as a thirty one year old millennial. I've grown up with jt from his days back and then sink till now as a movie star all the way back to music here. Having him invest in baseball makes a ton of sense. It's a great investment. We've seen Patrick Mahomes do it here recently sell JT FROM MEMPHIS from. Tennessee. Going home I like it I'm all for it. I think a a major league team in Nashville would be a good thing for major league baseball. I would certainly be a destination I would love to travel to even if the locals aren't filling out the stadium day in and day out, it would be a destination travel trip for the rest of the teams that's for sure and their fan bases. But wrapping up here the second segment I just want to dive through the injuries that. Are taking place across Major League Baseball I'm sure I'm GonNa, Miss One or two here. But keeping you guys updated Justin Turner of the dodgers he could return from the injured list by this weekend What Dave Roberts told us the other day he's been out since August, twenty ninth with a hamstring strain but they're hoping to get him back into the lineup sooner than later you got Robert Guests, woman for the mets multiple times he walked off the field Tuesday night he had to bend over because he was unhurt. Day Riot a day later testing revealed a fractured rib which ended his season. So the injuries continue for New, York and guests. Woman has a fractured rib led to all that pain that we were watching him go through the other night the Blue Jays are trying to get everybody back as well as losing some more people to. The injured list I mean the the names of Boba, Shat Ken Giles. Nate Pearson. Matt. Shoemaker Jordan Romano are all going to be coming off her on the injured list here shortly they placed Rowdy Tellez on the ten day injured list with a right knee strain but Boba Shet came off the I l. and played six innings the other day this week. So he'll be back Ken Giles Giles's close to returning. They expect him you know early next week if not, this weekend Pearson is starting to ramp up. From, right elbow tightness shoemaker starting to ramp up in play catch and long toss remond. Oh, he's the only one that doesn't have a timetable yet. So it looks like Giles's the closest followed by Pearson with Ramana it'll be in the last one to come back from the injured list up there in. TORONTO. Eric Hosmer and Tommy of the Padres, hosmer was removed on Monday after he was hit from a fastball and the hand, he suffered a left index finger fracture broken left index finger Haas on the ten day I l, and could miss anywhere from two to six weeks as the range is very wide there because this looks like it's GonNa be or sounds like it's going to be a pain management issue for Eric Hosmer out there in San Diego. Tommy Fan meanwhile he's making great progress trying to return from surgery to repair a broken bone in his left hand he found himself taking batting practice for the first time Wednesday could be back in the lineup shortly. Then you have Matt. Chapman Marcus Simeon for the Athletics Chapman was held out of any throwing her hidden on Tuesday as he's dealing with right hit tendonitis..

"Statistic right in front of me, and of course, a lot of the statistics that we reference nowadays in Major. League. Baseball weren't as available or weren't used back during that time. So they tried to take today's analytics and apply them to looking at film or game play or don't even know exactly how they do it but his defensive metrics graded out extremely well, his base running metrics getting back to the triples him taking the extra base when the opportunity presented itself, I believe it was over. Fifty or sixty percent of the time. So the guy wasn't a speedster, but he knew how to run the basis and that led to him taking the extra base in stretching. Hey, double into a triple and one, hundred, sixty, six of those is very impressive and when I talked about defensive metrics as well he won twelve consecutive gold glove awards starting in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty. One. So from nineteen, sixty, one, all the way till his last year of Nineteen seventy-two, he was the gold glove winner in right field for the National League he led the National League in outfield assists five times during the curse of a career. So the guy had an absolute Canaan out in right field and since one thousand, nine, hundred, four, he ranked second in career assists as. A right fielder, he has a career two hundred and fifty five assists from right field, which is second all-time. So this guy just he did it all I mean he hit three seventeen, he hit triples let's look at his home run stats he he figured out how to hit home runs later in his career a lot of way or an easy way to put it is that Guys who get to the major leagues I you learn how to hit major league pitching and then you learn how to hit home runs against Major League pitching I mean case in point locally here is Alec bomb for the Philadelphia. Phillies. Former third overall pick who has come up hit right around three hundred put the ball in play. He's twelve for twenty-three with runners in scoring. Position but certainly hasn't lifted the ball out of the ballpark yet, and that will come with experience that will come with timing that will come with repetition, and that's what happened with Roberto Clemente and his first five years he had five, seven, four, six, four home runs but then from then on double digits every year and averaged upwards of almost twenty home runs he started getting to. Sixteen twenty three seventeen twenty nine was his career high in nineteen sixty six when he won the MVP award, he hit three seventeen, that year twenty, nine home runs. One hundred nineteen are be is he also had eleven triples and thirty one doubles. So what's that there? Quickly Sixty seventy one extra base hits across the board in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, six, what a fantastic year. For Roberto in that year, he was a two time world series champion. To Go along with those twelve consecutive gold gloves, he also had fifteen all stars. He was named an all-star fifteen different times. That's very impressive throughout the course of eighteen years. He had four L. batting titles to go along with the nineteen sixty, six award he had three, fifty, one and nineteen, sixty, one, three, thirty, nine, and nineteen, sixty, four, three, fifty, seven, in one, thousand, nine. Hundred Sixty seven and three, twenty, nine in nineteen, sixty five to win the batting championship in those years very impressive. He also ranks once again putting in the new age sabermetrics into the old style of baseball. He ranked thirty seventh all time in wins above replacement or war according to baseball reference. So very, very high on the list during his prime one of the most complete players. I, heard Larry Bowa speak the other day and somebody asked him about the best baseball player. He's ever played against and he said it was hands down. So Clemente nobody was even close it's just I mean this guy if you really look at it from nineteen, we'll say sixty one or even nineteen sixty through the end of his career. So those twelve years he was an all star every year except for nineteen, sixty eight and the guy had two to ninety one that year. So certainly had the numbers he finished in the MVP top twenty every single year he had. Let's see one two. Three four top five finishes in MVP voting, and it's just let's look at some of the individual performances that really stand out here based on some research I've been able to do but nineteen, fifty six, he had an inside the park walk off Grand Slam, and apparently that is the only time in the history of Major League baseball it actually happened it was Let's see a historic trip nine, eight victory the pirates over the cubs and It was his first home run was also an inside the park home run. So he has the only inside the park walk off Grand Slam in the history of baseball up. A year later in nineteen fifty seven, he had a three homer, seven RBI performance, which was probably the most impressive offensive performance of Roberto Clementes career for five three Dinger's seven RBI's against the reds he had to to run shots, and then a solo homer in the ninth, the pirates did end up losing that game but of course, Roberto was a star nineteen, fifty, eight, he had. A three times three bagger Clemente became just the twenty eighth player in history to have three triples in one game which ties the modern era. So nobody has had four triples in one game. It seems here but Clemente is one of the gentlemen was able to have three of them in one game. He had a walk off hit in the All Star game in nineteen sixty one. To lead the National League to a five four victory, he basically, let's see Hank Aaron led off the inning Frank Robinson was there. So I stacked lineup but ultimately, your hero was were Roberto Clemente in the same year that he won the MVP, he also had the walk off winner in the All Star game. That's a pretty good summer if you're Roberto Clemente. Defensively in nineteen sixty nine, he made a crazy catch to preserve a no hitter one handed grab over the field fence. It's one of the best highlights and best catches that she'll see if you search over youtube and and kind of dive into some of these, you'll be able to find that one thousand, nine, hundred, Seventy Roberto Clemente night at three rivers stadium. They had this. They welcomed fans from Puerto Rico for the occasion. Obviously. Roberto. Was a hero for a lot of kids of Latino descent. Because Roberto Clemente after his passing in nineteen, seventy two was elected to the baseball hall of fame in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three, and he was the first Latino to be enshrined in the Major League Baseball Hall of fame. So everything that Jackie Robinson did in for for the African, American. Community Roberto Clemente was very similar idolized player for the Latino community. I know Alex Rodriguez has talked about idolizing Roberto Clemente and that's where I think baseball's doing a nice job and honoring him once a similar similar to Jackie Robinson because the has continued to evolve and obviously the influence of La Latino players in Puerto Rico and everybody has continued to grow across major. League Baseball and we've seen that with everybody from Puerto. Rico wearing number twenty one in honor of Roberto Clemente on Wednesday with the rest of Major League baseball wearing a patch and showing their love for Roberto Clemente also Major League baseball the MLB Network has a studio twenty one along with a studio forty two. So very much highly thought of in regards to Major, League baseball and just fascinating I. Mean The guy was an all star gold glove top fifteen MVP guy hit three twelve with seven home runs and sixty RBI. So yeah, our ten home runs and sixty RBI. So maybe the offensive power numbers were dropping at the age of thirty seven for the pirates. The Guy could still hit career three seventeen hitter thirteen hundred RBI is two hundred and forty home runs and exactly three thousand hits and of Cour- say a hero to the Latino community and just a model citizen for everything. Major League, baseball and. Great Great Athlete and a great great baseball player. But that'll wrap things up here for the first segment of the GSM baseball podcast brought to you by the. MC podcast network I'm your host Kevin Mahalick will pause right now for a word from one of our sponsors, one of.

This is a great story of people if people don't know it, and was supposed to be on that flight, Theo fated flight where they were helping Earthquake victims from Nicaragua and Roberto told Tom Walker Neil's dead. No, he was going to get on the plane, he said. You stay. I'll see you at the party was New Year's Eve party. And the rest is history. And so Tom gets very emotional. Can you imagine this night? So I was there at PNC Tour a vertical many night. Neil Walker's there. Vehicle. Many and the boys were there. And Neil hits a home run over the Roberto Clemente Wall. Perfection.

Another legend that went far too Soon. Buster was the late great Roberto Clemente and later this week, Major League Baseball is going to pay homage to him for a certain ethnic group of players, which I think is a great great thing.

Rivera was the first one to report this Major league Baseball is going to allow players from Puerto Rico, which is where Roberto Clemente was from. To wear number 21. Clementi's number on other players will have the opportunity to where some kind of a decal also with number 21 on it, But I really believe that this is you know another step toward that day when they retire his number 21 in the same way that they did that retired Jackie Robinson's 42 Clementi and historic Figure in baseball. And so revered that the sports humanitarian award is named for him. And there has been this growing. Ah, call for baseball to take that step. I think they feel like, well, we way have this other ward name form. But the fact that they're doing this and and the fact that I think we're going to see players really jump on this and celebrated. Ah, and then I did find it. Find a way to talk about comment. Ae and and remember Clementi. I think that they're just going to continue to build on this. At some point that number 21 will go up in the scoreboards everywhere around baseball. It stands to reason because he is one of the great as you mentioned humanitarians in the history of the game. In fact, that's how we ended up losing his life in that plane crash Thinking of others. And this week, Major League Baseball will be thinking of him. Buster only is the host of the Buster eyes. The host. Excuse. We have the baseball tonight five gassed. And he always brings it with us. Every single I get one from Buster going. Just got one more for you. But I'm only here for one day, man. I gotta get much as I can. So what do we think that the Mets are going to be sold? And is it any substance to the fact that air I felt like he was just there to raise the price for going Well, you know, I talked to him about the other day because there was a story that said that he can't remember what the word was that he was living or something like that. And he said, no, just, you know, I mean part of the process and let's face it, if you if you're in a bidding and you don't win it, then you're probably gonna have complaints or trades. I know that that happens every day in sports, but I think you know Alex. At some point, I fully expect that he's going to merge is a bitter for another team. Um, but boy, what a what a landscape changing. Ah, move for the Mets to go to new ownership, which is going to spend a lot more money. And for the first time, I think under Steve Cone, I think we're going to see the Mets go toe to toe with the Yankees. Have been for some of the best players in the game. Watch the Francisco indoor bidding in two winters. Those that will be a showdown. Syndergaard has to be something fun to be at the locks in the garden, you know, he probably thought he was 1 ft. Out the door one on a banana peel that it is the time of John surgery. Yeah, that And I think it would not at all surprised me of this winter if he saw Steve Cohen trying to announce his presence with authority and maybe go after J. T Reum youto, the All Star catcher of the Philadelphia Phillies. Indeed, Steve Cohen, huge hedge fund guy grew up a Mets fan. And if you take a look at Steve Cohen's bank account, he's not used to finishing second. Anybody other is a 10 billion more than any other owner. No, dad Boy. That's money. Yes, and he doesn't want to use that five year window that the Wilpons wanted to give him. He wants to take over. Right now, let me make sure I get this right. Buster only is the host of the baseball Tonight Podcast, And it's always great to have him on K. J..

"Can you only had one of them? The station. Now, they'll look the love and tried to hang onto. The you know, what's weird though, you know, you loaned us your gold glove, and it was great to have in. What people have to understand is. It's actually just a baseball mitt then is spray painted gold. Like, Like, it's. it's. I mean, it's cool. But it's it's kind of a cheap, you know award. I mean, it's a great honor herald don't get me wrong. I think the actual trophy. They they they give you is just a glove, and then they get, you know, Russ stolen them, and then they spray pin. Well last night. Ward was was awarded Johnny Atlanta, right down. So let's see the Roberto Clemente where it looks like the Heisman Trophy. Well, I want it back in ninety one that gave me a ball. That was basically they silver bronze too. Come on get a high, isn't it? The Red Sox with two two outs in the you know, this ability they're hitting over four hundred with two ounce. And I I guess I I look at what Cora has done for this team. And what I love and that is put the bat on the ball. Don't try to you don't have to hit home runs. They're not relying on home runs here. And they're put the ball in play. And I I don't know if more teams are going to look at this and go. Oh, jeez. That's it does make more sense than striking out that you put the ball in play. And then things happen. What do you make of this strategy? It's not strategy. I guess, but it's just the ability to you know, put the ball in play with with two outs in runners in scoring position. Well, I I take full loss. That, you know, it's it's it's blending the new analytics and also the old school together. And I think we've gone through numbers and data are always constantly changing. Right. It changes are are thought process of of how we think about things so Alex comes from Houston ASO's who way out there with all the Olympics. But I think they're the first ones sit there and say take a pitch given account and lead league in strikeouts. Then they made the adjustment. We're gonna put the ball in play and they went to World Series. And I think analysts about that here. He had a quote last night. And that he said in the press conference to ten and thirty home runs and seventy Rb is you can't play for the Red Sox that doesn't get it with one hundred ninety five strikeouts. You can't play here. So I think what it's been accepted herald it that's the problem is baseball has accepted this as the new normal. Well, I hate it. I hate it. I know most people. Do the ball's gonna be play. And if you put the ball in play good things are gonna happen strike out. Not just another out you have no production. So I think there's team starting to see it when you have the team leading right? You know to in the World Series. I'm not gonna give it to them yet. Although I think you'll probably win it. And last year winter saying strikeouts is not the way you play. You put the ball in play. Maybe we're going to start to see this turn. And we'll see 'cause we gotta get the game back to putting the ball play. It just. HR safe travels to Los Angeles. We'll check in with you a little bit later on in the series. Thank you. Fran. Appreciate Harold Reynolds. He won three Gold Gloves. Yeah. Fritzy, no, offense or anything. But it's kind of a cheap award. It is like what you mentioned looking at the gold glove looked like cheap award. Yes. It's an amazing honored again. But when we all got it. We were like this is what they give them. Really, didn't you think it was actual gold glove again like it was a gold glove? Like when you tap on it, solid. It was a rust Olim high end restaurant. Yes. Because you could get a glove, and I could spray painted, and I could spray spray thing to baseball's. I think that we could probably construct a gold glove. It was a little more. It had the feel of like a more high end sixth grade art project, it was a little bit more art project that like somebody did that out in the garage..
