"Have to swing a little higher than you would otherwise because you know that the pitch it's going to look deceptive you're going to be expecting it to follow more than it actually will and so you can actually adjust your swing plane a little, but that's a hard adjustment to make. The ball looks like it's here to be, but I know it's actually there so I will elevate my swing a little bit like that takes a rare type of talent to make that adjustment I think even if you know that you should. So there's just more and more information and hitters are just going to be on their back feet because they're not going to be able to take advantage of it quite as much or quite as early as pitchers and so that's why I am generally in favor of some sort of intervention that goes beyond juicing or deadening the ball. But you have to actually tie some arms behind teams back when it comes to which pictures are available to teams and managers at any given time or any of the other measures we've talked about because it's just hard out there for hitters. So anyone who blames the hitters for the offensive environment, I just don't get it. I think it's a fundamental misunderstanding that has the relationship backwards. Yeah, I think that that is exactly right. I don't have anything to add. Sometimes I think I should say more, and then I'm like, but Ben already said all this stuff. So I could just be in agreement. And I think I am. Well, if you ever disagree, please do vocalize your disagreement. No. Completely wrong. Hey, get out of here. Yeah, I can't believe that you would base a good argument on an interview that one of my writers carefully reported and that I carefully edited how dare you. People like disagreements. They do. The rare occasions when we do disagree. Sometimes we do. Yeah, but it's not one of those crossfire type shows where it's like because you know what? You start with a crossfire show and then one of those guys is just really committed to the bow tie and it goes wildly wrong after that Ben. Yeah, it's not even like a Herald Reynolds Brian Kenny dynamic here. But there are times when we don't see quite out of I and I cherish those times as well. We always enjoy and have respectful disagreements, but did you see emergency catcher Josh van meter of the pirates this past weekend? Because if you haven't I'd recommend going back and it seems like a Meg article thing to happen there. But I saw that it was happening. I saw it on folding. I had the crushing realization and dread that I was like, they're going to have to bring someone up and then I went to roster resource, which is this really great part of fan graphs dot com. And I was like, they don't have any more. They don't have any other catchers on the 40 man. We're going to have to make a roster move to accommodate this. And they did, they did have to do that. And so I felt bad for that reason. I'm sure that Andrew nap didn't realize what I'm going to do. What he was stirring when he got ejected there and poor Roberto Perez got banged up too. But yeah, I think that, you know, we are often presented with moments where we realize like just how hard being a professional athlete is, right? And you know, I think that for whatever reason, people tend to have a misunderstanding of their ability to sort of plop down in the middle of not just a professional baseball game, but like a big league game. And look, be able to fake it, you know, be able to have someone come away thinking like, yeah, that person there, they're a professional athlete. And then we have moments like this where we're forced to reckon with. That guy is a professional athlete. And it seemed to have gone badly for him in this particular moment. It did not go well at all. Yeah, we are losing the ability to appreciate how good MLB players are by being presented with players who are just way over their heads and out of their depths because we still see that with position players pitching, which is common, but we don't see it with pitchers hitting anymore, which I'm not sorry about, but I do sort of miss that aspect of this is just a walk on. This is someone off the street who for some reason is being expected to do this thing in a big league baseball game. That was very common. We don't have wax a hatchie swaps anymore with the three better minimum where you got to see every now and then a pitcher out in the field could conceivably still happen every now and then. But these things have gotten more rare, and it is rare to see the emergency catcher pressed into service. And in this case, as you noted, Andrew nap, he was not even in the game. He got thrown out for arguing a check swing call from the bench, and at that point he did not know that his services would be needed later in that game because Roberto Perez, who was in the game, he got hurt, running the bases, and then it was like uh oh, because our backup cuts from out of the game already. That means we have to put in Josh van meter. And Josh fit meter had not cut since high school and not even late in high school..

"I think the games between rivals are among the most fun to watch in a playoff setting. You know, when the niners and the rams played one another as divisional foes to advance to the Super Bowl, that was super fun. And I think that there is a contempt that comes with that familiarity that can make them very intense and sort of hard fought contest. I think that for me at least the balance that I try to strike on this is that you never want to get to the point where like a legitimately good player who appears to be a non jerk isn't someone who you can feel excited for when something really incredible happens for them. I think that's where I hope to set the outer boundary of any experience of rivalry. I'm a Seahawks fan. I don't particularly care for the rams, but I can't help but feel happy for Aaron Arnold, because he deserves to have a Super Bowl. So, you know, I think you want to be able to come up for air from the rivalries enough to be able to say, well that guy's really good at this sport. Good for him, you know. Maybe not when you're playing that team. But after the fact, you should be able to access that part of a broader fandom too. Ideally. All right, one more follow-up from that episode. We got a question about who would be the modern equivalent of Jack grainy, who was nicknamed three and two Jack because his sole offensive skill at least at the plate was drawing walks and making pictures work. And so he had a higher on base percentage than he did slugging percentage and was basically a league average hitter just solely because he was able to work walks and get to full counts constantly. And so we got a question of who does that now and we got some suggestions and they were all really good well rounded. All around offensive talents who do draw a lot of walks and get to a lot of full accounts, but they do everything else well too, and so I sort of rejected them as solutions that I'm looking for someone who does that and only that wealth and it's tough to find the perfect comp because we're not in the deadball era anymore and pretty much everyone has some sort of pop, but I suggested Roberto Perez, the catcher because he does not have much in the way of an offensive skill set, but what he does have is the ability to get to full counts and work walks and I put it out there. I asked for other submissions. And we got some suggestions of yasmani grandal, probably because of his strange slash line last season and the low batting average in the high OBP. But again, he's got power. I mean, he's like a 25 Homer guy comfortably well above his on base percentage has sucking percentage. So I don't know that he is perfect. We got some other mentions of Tommy Pham. Carlos Santana, Aaron hicks, but one popular name was Matt Carpenter. And Matt Carpenter kind of falls into the Roberto Perez. Zone of not actually a viable offensive player anymore. He wasn't always true? No, he was a very good offensive player. But when he was a good up into player, he also did other things. And so I don't know that he would have quite fit the description either. I guess he would have fit fairly well, but you know he hit 36 homers one year. It wasn't even that many years ago. It was 2018. So he had that in his bag of tricks and now he does not. His back of tricks now is one trick and unlike repairs he is not an elite defensive catcher. So that doesn't bode well for his future in the majors, but in the past couple seasons, he has posted a 71 OPS plus, which is roughly Roberto Paris esque, but he's done it with a one 76 batting average and a three 13 OBP and a two 91 slug percentage. So he has the Jack grainy style OBP that's higher than slug. But he is not nearly a league average hitter. However, he has walked like 14% of the time and apparently this was a talking point on cardinals broadcast, someone tweeted at us to say that cardinal's announcers John Rooney and Ricky Horton had a bit where when Carpenter worked the count full, they would say Matt Carpenter is the count of three and two. I have not heard that myself, but if that's the case, then that's a pretty good qualification for this. I think we can go with three and two, at least for now. Yeah, I think that that's reasonable. All right. And just one little bit of news that I wanted to mention, this was not surprising. It may have been a surprise to some people. It was not something that had not been reported previously, but it really came to the fore this week. And that's that there has been no PD testing happening recently for major league players for players who are members of the union because of the lockout when the CPA expired. The joint drug agreement was set to expire too, and if there had not been a work stoppage, then the provisions of the old CPA could have continued and the JDA could have continued and testing could have continued, but because MLB and the owner's implemented a lockout that made the CPA void and also made it so that MLB could not continue to drug test players who were in the union, then this was something that I think Ken Rosenthal and Evan drew a kid reported would probably be the case back in November, but it was confirmed this week and seemingly there has not been drug testing going on, and that's all kind of drug testing, drugs of abuse and PDs, but PD is more relevant to most fins interests probably. And I do kind of wonder whether there will be any effects from that because if we're talking more than two months now that there has been no testing in place, I'm not suggesting that the steroid era is about to be back. And there are people who would welcome the steroid pack their people who missed the stereo era and there were some positives to the steroid era. But what do you think? Do you think anyone will test this? Obviously no one knew how long the lockout would last..

"He was a career two 53 54 three 42 hitter, so he had a higher career on base percentage than slugging percentage, which is partly because he played a lot of his career in the dead ball era. But also he just did not have a lot of pop, did not hit for high averages by the standards of the day. All he could do is work walk, so I think you need someone who is good at working walks and that's their whole thing, which I don't think applies to Soto or vado who are just really great all around hitter. So I don't know if I have a perfect answer here. I would welcome submissions and suggestions. But I did look on baseball savant just since 2008, minimum 3000 pitches and I just looked for hitters who had the highest percentage of the pitchers they faced come in three two counts and Soto is at the top and Acuna is up there Reese Hoskins and number 7 is Brandon Belt, decent choice, I think, but number 8 is Roberto Perez, which I did expect, but Roberta Perez, you don't maybe think of his plate discipline all that much because you don't think of him as a hitter at all. You think of him as a gold glove catcher, but he is patient. He's still a bad hitter, but his career line is two O 6 two 97 360. So it's not a good on base percentage, but given that he hits two O 6 and in recent years, he said lower than that. Having a mid two 50s or high to 90s OBP when you're hitting in the low 200s or mid 100s, you're still working a fair amount of walks, even though pitchers don't really have to be afraid of you. So in that sense, you know, he's seeing many more three two counts than you would expect him to, given his overall offensive productivity, but he still a terrible hitter, whereas Jack granny was like a league average hitter. So that's still kind of a knock on him..

"Regression some plexiglass principle will come into play here, similarly with the twins take a huge step back and maybe you just imagine that there will be some springboard action back into respectability. But yeah, no barrios and kenta maeda, having had Tommy John surgery in September. I know it was the brace type of Tommy John surgery that in theory has a quicker recovery, but really just no rotation to speak of here. I mean, I like Joe Ryan. There are other arms there, but you can't go into a season with that rotation and realistically expect to content. So I don't know what they have up there sleeves and how much more they are willing to spend and whether they'll be active in trades or sign one of the bigger remaining starters. But it does seem like there's more work to do here. But it is at least encouraging that they have retained the services of Byron buxton. So I think the only other team maybe that we need to touch on right now, I guess is the marwin and we talked a little bit about the Marlins recently when the rumors were circulating about the sandy Alcantara extension that is now official. And in addition to that, they have signed Avi silic Garcia and they have traded for Jacob stallings from Pittsburgh. So this is sort of what we said last time that they had the pitching, and now it's about spending and or trading from depth to put together a lineup. And that is what they are attempting to do now. So obviously, Garcia has signed a four year $53 million contract, which maybe is bigger than people had projected for Abby silk Garcia. But the marwan is just meet a lot of offensive help. They need, I guess they need a catcher who can help their young pitchers and stallings who just won a gold glove is certainly that. It's like, I guess if you can't go get pictures, well, in the Marlins case, they don't need to in the twins case they do, but hey at least if you have buxton out there, he will save you some runs in center, like the twins run prevention is a lot better when Byron buxton is on the field. And you would think that the marwin bringing along a young pitching staff it is probably helpful to have someone like stylings. They're not going to be a huge help offensively, but he's not a bad hitter for a catcher. So that's kind of what they needed to do. They needed to either spend money as they did with Garcia, or they needed to trade from their pitching stockpile as they did trading Zach Thompson to Pittsburgh to get styling. So this was sort of the playbook, and they're not there yet either, but it is a start to making this a more balanced roster. Yeah, and you know, I think that while the options here around catcher are just bad across the league, like his ability, like you said to be sort of a consistent defensive force for them is really good. And when you look at the alternatives, this seems fine. You know, I don't think that they really were going to play in the yawn gum space. And I think that it's defensible to say we want someone younger, who can kind of come along with the staff and the only way to really do that is in trade because I don't know, can I interest you in a Roberto Perez? I mean, I know that he has signed now. But I think that this is a better option there. And then you look to the extension and it's like we're identifying the pieces of this roster who are going to contribute when we're really ready to contend and I think that contrast one of them. So I don't know, I like it for Miami, I think that they are gonna get in a spot where they have to spend more even than they did with Garcia, but I don't know. Seems fine. All right, so we've covered the major moves, say I know that we haven't gotten to everything. There's no way we could. There were many reliever moves, the Giants made some pitching moves and brought some guys back and got Alex Cobb and maybe we will get to some of those other moves during the long cold winter months with no transactions. And there's been other interesting news too that presumably we will talk about. Next time there's a proposal about a 14 team playoff format with a draft lottery, so there are things to discuss about that and friend of the show Bradford William Davis has an interesting report up about MLB using multiple models of baseball. This past season, who is surprised by that, but still good to have it documented. So lots more to discuss next time we will be talking about either the beginning of the lockout or the miraculous resolution to avoid the lockout. One of those two things, but we have plenty to talk about next time and then the last show of the week in lieu of talking about the hot stove we will talk about stove leak again. So is this a good model for the off season? I know a lot of people have made jokes about, hey, we should have a lock out every off season. And I know they're just kidding, and obviously we don't actually want that. But is this good is the envy that baseball fans feel about watching NFL for agency NBA free agency and saying, hey, super exciting, day or two here. That's basically what we've had in MLB..

"Talking about an upgrade, well, you're definitely talking about an upgrade on the defensive end with calling games and helping out young pitchers and not being a liability on a complete liability on the defensive end. I don't think people say Gary Sanchez defense has improved. I mean, yeah, I mean, I guess it's improved to the point where you're not ripping your hair out. Every other inning, but it's still not good. So yeah, I would probably do zanino for like 5 mil if the raise let him go and then because the thing it's just tough because you're not going to be able to trade Sanchez. No one's taking that money. No one's taking that chance, so it's either not to understand jazz and go with zino or stick with Sanchez again or get rid of Sanchez and figure out a better plan, which I don't know what that would be. But I really don't think that I really don't think fans would be up in arms if he's batting one if xenos batting one 80 in June and not really getting the job done. As long as there's no deficiencies behind the plate to the extent as there were with Sanchez, I really don't think it would be an issue. Yeah, I mean, I hope not. But you just never know because you know how this I mean, who turned on Joey Gallo and when? I can't even really tell at this point if they're still supporters. I don't think there's enough. I don't think there's enough outrage with what Joey Gallo is done. In my opinion, I don't know if I'm am I wrong. No, I don't think you're wrong. Based on social media based on the media kind of like the New York Post did a couple of stories about how bad Joey Gallo was. It's like the difference between Sanchez and Stanton doing bad in on a week stretch, they would get eviscerated by everybody and everything. Joey Gallo had an awful two months, and I feel like the criticism was like fairly light for New York. I don't know. These free agent catchers it should also be noted or absolute dog shit. There's no other way around it. Yon Gomes and Martin Maldonado are the best two who are available for money alone. Everybody else has complicated fact. Many pina is available. He hasn't been good in four years and he's 34. Best of luck with that, sandy Leon, you can have him. If you'd like, it's like a Wilson Contreras trade in his final year. That's a thing, but is that really an upgrade on Gary Sanchez? They seem to be the same person. Tucker barnhart has a club option. Christian Vasquez as a club option zunino obviously Roberto Perez, who I love, but can't stay healthy. These are all the people that I'm reading off. So I don't not terribly happy with either of these people. Let's talk Matt Olson for a second because he is the obvious upgrade that this team could stand to have. He is only 27..

"There's an injury reason to put you here. You're hitting really well and so the miscues like in addition to adjusting to a position. That isn't the one that you've been playing bet is back in yup and now it's not and i think that people do react to sort of those sort of miscues in errors and he'll just he also doesn't appear to be confident out there all the time right like it's he is aware of his limitations and so there will be times where you're watching him play and he feels the need to fully come set rather than throw when he might be able to get someone at first and so it's just this is probably best for everyone and like you said really great for the guys who are hoping to make a splash on what is probably going to be a difficult to predict free agent market because once the yankees entered the chat feel like all of your all of your prospects. Go up i mean not your literal prospects although sometimes that too but you know your your odds of securing a bigger contractor good when you feel like there's someone at the table who's known to spend a bit of money so all right well we will return to the pennant races tamar with jay but for now we have a couple other good guests and really periodically throughout this podcast history. We have returned to the topic of minor league conditions whether it's minor league pay minor league housing minor league nutrition and the ways that teams are still falling short in those areas. We've talked to current and former minor leaguers. We've talked to people who have filed class action suits. We've talked to people who've started advocacy organizations. We have talked. I'm sure to russell carlton from baseball prospectus about that before because he has been writing about it for just about as long as we have been talking about it if not longer so he is going to be back on to talk to us about that and he will be joined by relief. A first time guest the red rabbit o'connell who just wrote reported piece about this for defector which was also cross published at bp of course it's not as if baseball is the only industry where some of the working conditions aren't great. But this is baseball podcast so we tend to focus on baseball issues. So we'll get into whether those conditions have improved and the arguments for improving them and refuting the arguments against improving them and more in just a moment and one more player who is among the minor leakers now. Unfortunately for him is ryan lavar way. The star of our recent stap last has been designated for assignment when he was the star of our staff blast because he is the first player in major league history to play his hundred sixty second game in his tenth major league season to take that many seasons to get to essentially a full season of games played any got there but not long after he got there. He was designated for assignment yet again so his travels continue. He got thirty plate appearances for cleveland. And roberto perez is back from the i l. and away lavarnway goes so his odyssey good for him for sticking it out. I suppose. I wonder how much longer he well but he had some. Some nice moments was a seven hundred twenty eight. I think with cleveland and he's played for. I think eight major league teams in like seven major league organizations in the last seven seasons so sure he has some stories to tell and hopefully he can write a book about it. But i'm sure he is very well acquainted with the.

"The dodgers have lost a couple and the giants too. But if i were an nfl team staring down one of those teams in wildcard. I would feel not confident. Maybe i would maybe not feel confident. So there's that yeah well we will return to the raise. A little later on in a step last segment wanted to follow up on something. You sort of idly mused about when we were talking about mika cabrera's five hundred home run. You mentioned that he had hit his five hundred home runs off of three hundred forty six different pitchers which yep sounded like a lotta pictures. But it's kind of hard to tell his that a high ratio or low ratio. Not necessarily the sort of thing you can answer off the cuff as you are recording a podcast. Fortunately we have very smart and industrious listeners. Who are able to look these things up in motivated to look these things up so we got an email from erin who looked into this question. He says i'm trying to learn python. And i decided to mix this interest with my favorite podcast generate some compelling problems to solve and thanks to the amazing work at retro sheet dot org. I was able to lend a little insight into megs question. Miguel cabrera's pitcher to homerun ratio is point six nine going back to nineteen fifteen. The average pitcher to home run ratio for all players is point seven one. That's calculated by taking the sum of unique pitchers for each player in the set divided by the sum of runs for each player in the set. So he's close to that pace but erin says. I thought this list is likely skewed by many players with just a few home runs after all every time someone hits a home run against a unique pitcher. They increase the chances that their next home run. We'll come against a pitcher. They have already taken deep breaking down the pitcher to home ratio in one hundred homerun segments shows a predictable trend. More home runs lower pitcher to home run ratio. The five hundred homer club has an average ratio of point. Four eight so for someone who homered as much. As miguel cabrera he has hit homers against a comparatively large number of pitchers. So if you have fewer than a hundred career homers over the course of baseball history. Aaron finds that the average pitcher to hoberman ratio is point eight two but if you have say seven hundred plus home runs and it's a small group than the average ratio is point five one however aaron rights. While doing this research i also found it fund that the player with the most home runs without touching up the same pitcher twice is roberto perez with forty six metre sheet database doesn't include twenty twenty one games and roberto has homered six times this year. Aaron didn't check to see if he has a duplicate so far. If so keith. Lockhart will own that distinction with forty four. He shared that number with tucker barnhart heading into the twenty twenty one season but he has not checked tucker barnhart seven homers this year. Aaron says he also wondered who has taken the most pitchers deep and as you would expect. It is usual suspects. Barry bonds four hundred forty nine albert pujols four hundred. Twenty eight and alex rodriguez four hundred twenty two anti-pc showed his work in linked to it. As i will. However i had a follow up for erin i said there must be an era effect right because miguel cabrera's ratio is high. Forty five hundred homer guy. He has homers against a comparatively large number of pitchers because they're so many pitchers used per game. Think and so. Many pitchers used per season these days. And they're just more teams and everything. I mean if you were playing in an era where there were like sixteen teams. And all of the starters were pitching complete games all the time right. Then you expect that your ratio would be different from today where there thirty teams and you're facing multiple pitchers per game. So i asked him if he could check how the career ratios vary by career. Start date and he has looked into that and i will link to what he found there. Basically when you adjust for the era effect. Miguel cabrera's pitcher to run ratio is pretty normal especially if you look at the number of home runs he has hit so if you just for both how many homers he is hit and when he is hit them he is actually not that unusual. I mentioned that his ratio is point. Six nine well. The average ratio for players who debuted in the pd era and have three hundred or more homers is point seven so he has right there and for players who debuted post pd era and have three hundred plus homers. The average is point seven four so again it pretty much tracks. He has pretty much average. It was hard to tell at the time but yeah it sort of fits and he has a breakdown by when they debuted. So if you debuted say in the live ball era as he calls it. Nineteen twenty to nineteen forty one than the average ratio was like point six. That's for all players league wide expansion era nineteen sixty one to seventy six. It was point six one free agency era seventy seven to ninety three. It climbs two point seven five. Pd era which he's defending is ninety. Four to two thousand five than its point. Eight one and now post. Pd era two thousand six to present. The average ratio is point eight six. So it's a lot different from how it used to be but cabrera Kind of what you would expect if you do all of that. Research that aired did presented to us so thanks to him for that. Thanks to him and surrey mega. You're not special at all just some just some games with five hundred home. Yup so that was sort of step last but it was not actually the stat blessed. But thank you for that anyway. Erin so just the less thing before we get to some e mails. We talked about how the as had fallen behind the mariners in the al west and wild card races. You know who the as could use is frank sh- mundell i think if the as had frank swindell. Lp player of the week in new jersey native they probably would not be behind the mariners. Now and the as very recently did have freshmen. Tell but like everyone else said the world they did. That suspect that frank wendell was about to be one of the very best hitters in baseball over the past month or more so for those who have not followed the frank the pinks when del story he has powered the cubs to seven straight. Wins as we speak and he is done so in sort of historic fashion so according to espn stats and info. He is the first. Mlb player with a go ahead. Rbi in the sixth inning or later of four straight games over the past forty years so that sounds impressive. But if that's too many qualifiers for you then you can just look at french. Dell's stats for the cubs. Because he has now played thirty three games and had one hundred thirty three plate appearances for chicago. And he's hitting a cool three seventy four four twenty one six.

"Just continue to give these young guys wraps what we have in these recent prospect arms really. Let's try to get to wreak scruple to work a little more efficiently etcetera etcetera. I think that's that group is is pretty obvious. I think that cleveland the one that is very complex that they're catching situation for next year is interesting. Austin hedges is really good at some stuff and not at hitting. Roberto perez has an option that they. I don't think you're gonna pick up because. Brian lava sta. Who's like a junior college catching prospect from a couple drafts ago. He's forty man or rule. Five eligible this december and he's hitting Like well over three hundred this year. He's got an ob p well over four hundred. He's slugging but not hitting home runs. He's got like fifteen bags and this guy who converted the catching fairly late and now he's blown up offensively this year like he seems like a lock forty man ad. So would you rather have hedges or res- non tender hedges. I think that when forty crunch piece that was the question. I asked myself too because hedges an arab four guy but peres has a seven million dollars club option said save like two and a half or three million bucks probably figure. Get small razors. Because you never don't get a raise our yeah. I think i'd rather have hedges. Just because for cleveland i feel that three and a half million means an extra player of some kind. Then look at their roster. Actually try to compete next year. I think missing stream bieber. This year was a huge huge deal that they the way they turn out pitching means that they will have legit contender. Big-league starting pitcher depth between bieber and police. Ac and the group of young is like morgan and mackenzie continuing to develop jack and closing the bullpen. Like i do think they have a contending pitching staff or shore. How many hitters of those do you like like one ass. Well this is. The problem is that it's like jose ramirez is a lock. He's one and a half of my one. You can start poking holes in the rest of it though right like like from meal ella and right he's a piece. I think it naylor. I think is a piece as well but i do think that the i feel that they have kind of tried. The platoon have not really worked out at all. I think that you can expect the group of middle dealers that they have almond. Rosario owen miller andres jimenez gabriel arias guys who got basically in in some of the trades that they made in the offseason like some of them will be good enough to be perfectly suitable plug and play like i guess. I like rosario k. He's actually yeah. Yeah i just. I guess they need to do with the rest of this year's figure out which of these guys they're gonna use next year because they have there is really no reason not to give a bunch of these random guys reps and see who they actually want play because you know take your choice between mile straw herald. Ramirez mercado bradley zimmer. You can't put all these guys on the team and if you have a forty minute crunch none of them are that good. But i guess what they should be doing. The rest of the year is figuring out which of these players they wanna keep. You mentioned the forty man crunch and it's true like you could make an argument here. That the bottom of the cleveland. Bigly rosser has a lot of guys who were like hanging on by a thread. In terms of dewey. Keep them or is it. Time to move. On from zimmer and mercado and daniel johnson like i said these platoon type outfielder. Who just haven't really done anything. And then on the way you have. I mentioned lavas dida ritchie plazas hitting us early have position cody morris. Robert broom brian. Rokos top hundred prospect tyler. Freemen's the top one hundred prospects. All these guys are december of twenty twenty. One rosser ads. And so do you say all right. Let's keep these guys and move on from that group of outfielders in their mid to late. Twenty two i just mentioned or do we consolidate these prospects into like bigly pieces right now basically so i think that i don't know what the market's going to be like. Maybe that's the way you answer. That question is okay. Can we move the group of prospects. I just mentioned for like a controllable young outfielder that we think can contribute to the big league team in a significant way next year right because those those are just you know fallen off three right. That's the thing is like who were really want part with somebody like that. I mean this brand reynolds but right. Yeah you're looking at all right. Who are teams whose rebuilds are going to take quite a while who have players who are going to become expensive or free agency during the course of that long rebuilt. So that's like you know baltimore needs to start to show some results soon. I think but maybe there's still in that bucket. Balmer isn't in that bucket. But i mean there's a lot of what you could trade for antedates antenna airman's great player that you don't have to do with right. Then then the optics of that for cleveland would be. Hey we just traded a bunch of prospects for a guy who we let go in the rule. Five at one point you know. I'm not sure that castle. That much better right. He's he's a tenuous approach guy. Who has no defense value so okay. So that's that's what they're gonna do is trying to figure you're gonna keep Rid of i guess for the mariners. If i were them i just trying to figure out if abraham could play second base. It's interesting. He's always been a bizarre prospect. He's performed on paper from a visual standpoint. He does have like power arm strength when he really steps into a throw but he can't make all the throws middle infield defense. Seems like it's hard to see him be able to do that but i do think yeah why. Why not give that a shot for the rest of the year even situationally. They tried shed long sheds. Basically the same type of defender. Where you're like. Let's just try to hide this guy today. Yeah i mean. I think there's really nothing wrong with putting him at third if you're actually that's a little less clear but it would definitely be nice for the team. If they could play him. At second legitimately. I don't think the early results are so great from both watching him. Play looking at the metrics say like out of of average thinks. He's not good. But i think finding out it doesn't matter if he put some balls doesn't get some just vacant find out. That's worthwhile use of this wrestler season. And they've had injury stuff. It's made it tough like you know with kyle. Lewis send evan white and shed loans been hurt. Watt james paxton tommy. John oh yeah i mean. I think they've awfully had an admirable season. They've really been better than expected. And i don't hate the agreement trade as much high vodka's bad like kind of sequencing. Actually i think one pretty decently on getting kathy out of that and not giving up that much to get the network of trade was pretty good. Set them up for the next year. Just certainly didn't feel good the trader closer to the team. You're currently playing in your division. I think they need to be in depth accumulation mode. When you look at the group of guys that they have with nick and julio encounter rally in novi martinez coming pretty fast and the college pitching the drafted that has developed pretty quickly with gilbert. And george kirby like all of these guys are on the way. But you've seen san diego and the yankees struggle when injuries take a toll on your ability to sustain a apex level of performance in a competitive division. Which is what you need to make the playoffs in some of these divisions and maybe the. Al wests not that. But i think you know you just need to have better options than what the mariners have had to bring up. Casey sadler type dudes. And when you when you're dealing with the injuries that we just mentioned you just need better alternatives than what the mariners poised to have next year to be able to sustain that type of thing..

"And i'll tell you this big the mariners and the raise play today. That game ended just before we came on here tonight and The rays are not the raise. The mariners roughed up michael walker And the raise bullpen. Put up eight really one eight two. That's terrible terrible for the raise. Yes great for the mariners actually. Hey hey oh race right now. Yeah i wanna see what their twenty twenty one stats look like right now. Think we're at Can get their bullpen. Keep going keep going this. We'll tell you this. I do believe the rays have the best bullpen. As far as war goes say it's not a bad group. No it's not. It's not a bad i mean. They had the best bullpen last year. They had the success that they did that. If you you're going to get to the raise it's gotta be early because you're not scoring once you get into the sixth inning because that's when the vote right but so the team team white pitching in tampa bay right now. Era collective of three point five two. That's what it's collectively are a glasnost house. Era up to now is two point six six. So that's by far the best era on the team The next closest is shane mcclanahan. Three point seven four and then rich hills the next best one at three point. Eight seven so far as the starting pitching. But then he got into Li like you said the relief pitching and the closers and their er raise actually pretty good through two point. Three eight with ryan thompson. Three point three three or a skew. One i say two point seven two with the casteel. He's not no. We'll get to that later. That's a little teaser for you that i miss something. May what about andrew kitchen. He's still on the team because he had a one point. Four zero. okay. I think he today okay. And they've got a whole bunch of position players that i guess have. Era somehow just want him we we all remember brett phillips pitching. He's got a nine point. Zero zero are yeah. He should he should. I'm just thinking giving up one run in one inning. That math adds up good ritz to. It's off of him. Okay all right. Let's talk about jose abreu you get. Yeah so we had the white sox playing the playing. The cleveland indians not yet the cleveland guardians and jose got hit in the head and the indians catcher roberto perez. He comes out in the air. He immediately tends to to make sure he has the right. Because it was a solid ninety six miles an hour and pretty much square up. So perez down. They're checking on a mixture. he's okay then. Tony larussa does something that looks like running out of the dugout. I don't know what he was doing. Her wise so he goes over there he all but shoves peres off of a brave and gets in his face. Like what are you like. And then the benches clear like what. Yeah the only thing i could think of break is the tony. Larussa needs to be invited to not ever come back to baseball ever again. You think so. I do think so. He's caused more problems this year than anybody in the league this year..

He's up at this time Monday to Friday, 92 3, the fan in Cleveland. But he didn't have to get up at six o'clock or five o'clock or four o'clock, Ken Karma. What time do you get up every day to be in the studios and ready to rock on your Cleveland station? My alarm goes off at 3 21 because I want to be. I want to be up an hour. I want to be at one minute before Gayle King wakes up for CBS. News in the morning, but by waking up at like three a.m. like three. I'm naturally on the dot It's like Cramer. So So what time did you get to sleep till today? Um, 7 45. Okay, That's not bad. So you've had chance to get plenty of coffee and a good breakfast India today and jump aboard with me, and I appreciate that. There's a couple of Cleveland things I wanted to touch on. Um the Indians have now lost six games in a row. I didn't think they were going to be competitive. I thought the White Sox we're going to run away and hide in this division about the Twins were the only team had a chance to hang with them. And the Indians have up until this week, and now they're facing a pretty good deficit of six games. Um, I give your manager a ton of credit. I think he's one of best skippers in the game. And he's the reason why you've been able to hang in there and be above 500. Yeah, But as we get closer to the end of the month when the trade deadline comes down are the Indians of the belief that they can't hang in and made me make around at the White Sox or take a wild card spot. Or is this last week kind of brought everybody back the reality of Come on. This is a rebuilding year to begin with, anyway, and that's what we should be doing at the trade. I think it's more the latter. I really do. I think that, um at the beginning of the year they started off so well and really injuries mounted. It's such a weird year because the fans have been upset because of the Francisco Lindor or trade. Then they got upset with Francisco for a couple of things. He set out the door, which which didn't sit well with many Indians fan, so it's been a very bizarre year in those terms, and then they started out and they were really good. And the pitching has been there. The pitching was there that the starting lineup was better than what we thought We gave a lot of credit material. Francona then injury started him out. You know, you lose a guy like treadmill, Reyes Who had hit so well right there in that in that heart of that order, and we when you're just getting him back, it almost seems to some folks like it's a little bit too little, too late. The White Sox did him credit because the White Sox let him hang around for a little bit. And then you mentioned the twins. The twins have just been off to such a shoddy start that it gave us some hope. But then with With the Rays injury with Roberto Perez there, catcher getting hurt. Then you had this series of bizarre injuries. Uh, you know Justin Bieber getting hurt exactly. Sack her. His son like broke his thumb. Taking a shirt off like Only baseball injuries there and then every night, there seems to be something new. That sends a guy to a hospital. Even if it's not a big deal. Jose Ramirez thought the ball off his face, and then he went to the hospital over. I think Luther and West and then came back. And wanted to get back into the in game two. They played a doubleheader and he wanted to get back came to and they wouldn't let him in. So people are worried. And you have another person has to go to bed yet. Rosario had to go to an MRI so There's been a lot of weird injuries. That have really hurt this team, so there's a lot of names and faces that people don't really recognize in the lineup right now. And there's people who were anti Indian fans before because of the Dolans. Then there were people who were pro Indian fans just because they like baseball and I'll Neither of them really know what to do with the team because No, You can't sustain that many injuries in an everyday sport like them. They expect to really keep your head above water. One of the guys that I've been woefully disappointed within the tribe this year was under him, And as I thought he was the key guy in the Francisco indoor trade. They took too short stops off the medicines and him and his and Rosario New Rosario could play different positions as well. And he has, and he's actually been okay for you guys, but him and his was a major disappointment had to be sent down. Um, what was his issue? Why didn't click in? I thought he was the guy who, if they could get anybody to, uh, kind of moved past the fact that Francisco Lindor wasn't there anymore, it would be him and as what went wrong? I'd take consistency. I mean, you're getting you're getting more from from Cesar Hernandez. You get more from from Rosario than what you get from. From Andreas Feminist, so it consistency is always a big key. And there's also guys that you know, Terry Francona believes in veterans guys that he's had previous relationships with the past to help them out. And I think that that's been his problem. You know the head. There was another guy when they got to Mr Mackenzie up that I was excited. Lot of other people were exciting. I know the had spent some time in the big last year. But it's been Big struggle for both of those guys either in the field or at the mound of just finding consistency to be able to be major league ballplayers, and they're just not going to. They're not going to waste the time..

He's hitting two eighty eight eleven homers But i think i. I really liked that. That trio of bogart's shit anderson If i had to vote for one guy think that i have to vote for i mean i vote for probably. I mean zander. Bogart's i mean. I don't think that's that's really controversial. Like i'm trying to go with guys that i would put like if they weren't in that top three because that's kind of been what my theme has been except for going with maximum z. earlier But like i it's just hard to really figure out. A guy that that is is worthy of that. Vote in. i mean like when you're when you're paul goldschmidt and you're only hitting two forty eight but you have you know there's there's a bunch of other guys that are hitting better at your position that have a higher average than you like what we're really. Are you supposed to be getting your stats. Aren't that overwhelming right now. Like what is like where we supposed to go here At catcher is up next. We're going to stay. We're going go with the american league to start off this time since at the national league last time at catcher number one is salvador perez sitting to eighty five sixteen bombs forty-three. Rb is eight. Forty two oh. Ps in second place yeahs monte grande doll one fifty four average. Ten home runs twenty. Three rb is a nine a seven hundred five opie s and then in third place martin mcdonagh's who has a one sixty four average four home runs seventeen. Rbi's don't think that i really want Martin maldonado in the all star game. I i definitely do think peres deserves to be there Especially with his average. He's one of the best defensive catchers in the american league like. I don't think that that is much of a case really for for anybody right now like i mean you have. You have some guys like kurt suzuki. Who have it like a a to low twos average in the twenties. You guys i christian vasquez over fifty being a catcher is more about a defensive changer defensive guy and i i really like as monte grande all their don't love maldonado there so i'm trying to find another guy that i could potentially vote for and i would probably vote for like roberto perez. But he before he got her he was hitting just a buck thirty one and granted. That was really early in the season and in fact he was only had nine. Rb is on the whole year at that point so and and i know that peres would have more home runs or home runs and rb is if he were still playing right now and he weren't hurt a mitch garber he has some decent stats right here for the twins but the fact that the twins are so bad that like i don't know if i can vote for for somebody like that but i think if i had to vote for for one. Yeah i probably have to like. That wasn't on the list and father trying to replace a guy on the list. I would probably vote for either yasmina. Grand ole to try and bum maldonado down. Or i think i'm gonna try. And yes that mike zim no is going to be that other guy because i think zim no is probably my vote aside from salvador perez or monte grande doll up next though in the national league we have buster posey number one Yada yada molina. That's going to be my vote For sure like. I don't think he's one of my favorite players of all time in the wilson is in third yang gums. Also having a great year. James mccann having a fantastic season behind the plate for the mets austin nola is doing decently four the padres and his role right now will smith having a great year for the dodgers but buster posey's having one of the best years really of his career in definitely a bounce back year but i really still like yadi molina like i really like all all of those guys and i'm not going to be too upset so when we come back we're gonna do the outfielders and d. h. is and then i'll give you guys my starting pitchers and then we'll kind of go an analyze the one through three at every spot so we'll be right back is this is your ultimate stopper for everything sports the golden state media concepts or podcast. Should i say more from the nfl mlb the nba mma all in here on the golden state media concepts sports. Podcast listen and welcome back to the second segment of today's episode of the gmc baseball podcasts. So what we just did is we voted on every player or are my pick for the american league and the national league for my ballots so far and we went with at first base. Jared walsh for the american league. And max muncie for the national league second base was nick madrigal For the american league the white sox second baseman and the second baseman for the national league. I voted for jazz home junior now. I also should mention that a for really until we got until For for the most part. I'm picking guys that i think i would like to see their opposed to maybe one of the other top vote-getters now in the case of like zander bogart's. I think he's been the best shortstop in baseball this year And that's why she is the number one vote getter right now in all of baseball. Four for any american league shortstops. That's that's why he's number one there. But in the case of guys like jared walsh. I think that yeah ladimir. Guerrero junior near your yellow better. Yes but i think that I think that. Jerry walsh is having a better season than than jose brave And then at third base. I voted for jose ramirez in the american league and evan longoria in the national league longoria have the best season of his career since really for for a while. Now and for catchers. I voted for mike zeno and yada Now zunino is not the tie vote getter. In fact he is not in the top three. But i voted for him instead of Martin maldonado just because i really like Like you know in I like i like him behind the plate. More than i like the guy from the astros but national league. I went with yada molina. He's number two in the national league. And buster posey's having a fantastic year hitting over three hundred over ten home runs twenty. Three rb is an over almost a thousand opie s yet. He's having a great year. But i i just can't not vote for yada molina. Just he's my favorite catcher ever. So i kind of feel like i have to..

Well chris. thanks for having me on. it's It's it's been an interesting start for this team to say the least Kinda bullpens struggled early. They're kind of getting it together. Now offense if you look up and down the lineup some guys would track records have really not gotten at going but collectively. It's been pretty good. And then the starting pitching is really activity disclosed and being able to call a no hitter. Carlos roa down a couple of weeks ago is was exciting and Fans in the stands. I think is the big takeaway chris. I i think every broadcaster baseball would tell you that they're essential to the experience and while we had to do it without fans last year. I don't think i'd prefer to ever do it again. That way because it just it adds so much energy and he just. It's not only reactions. It's it's anticipation right. And i think the fake crowd last year you got the reaction noise. But you didn't get the the anticipation. And i think that's been a huge huge lift for everybody in the game. Yeah i think you're right there. That's one thing that You know as good as the in game presentation is that's one thing that you can't replicate right like kind of who the collective breath in as a line drive is headed towards right-center or breaking ball drops out of the zone. One thing that will never be able to replicate without the fans. No that's right and again there's just just so hard I think when you have the the canned version of its For to sound real now again. I think they've done a pretty good job in all sports trying to just you know. Add some ambience but Having the real thing is is awesome ants. You know we're starting to increase capacity here and knock on wood. That'll continue But you know you put eight to ten thousand people. Even socially distanced in an open air ballpark and they can make some noise. And we've heard it every time you're mean mercedes cubs to the plate seems to do something pretty spectacular There've been a few goosebumps moments already and That's interesting and i take down the road. We'll look back and you'll see a number eight thousand two hundred fifteen and you'll say gosh it felt like to sell out so You know as it increases the ten twelve fifteen twenty thousand. I think it'll be even Even better you mentioned no hitters at the fifth. No hitter that that you've called one it is number five year In all have kind of an interesting twist. I guess i called the bronco neutral site. No hitter that was the first in major league history. An eight that was against houston in milwaukee due to the hurricane i called z. Is technically a cubs. Home game right. It was an astros home game. Technically because the series was to be played useful was yeah but the cubs fans in the stands. I remember that and remember that vividly watching that game and just all of the different circumstances rolled up into that one. I'll i'll i'll never forget. That was for a lot of reasons. I think and then the cherry on top best outings umbrellas career that that was for lots of reasons. Just i think an incredibly memorable game for fans forever. Yeah no no doubt. And it was the first cubs no hitter since seventy twos so he. It had been a while And then the area at a number two no hitter on the first one. I didn't call. It was the sunday night game in la because it was a an espn game. But i was in the dugout and i interviewed area. And miguel montero together Right after the game so that was that was pretty cool but the second area no hitter i think is still the biggest blow out. It was like. I think it was sixteen. Nothing biggest blowout in a no hitter Then i called cole. Hamels no hitter wrigley. It was his final start as a philly of the next day. I think he got traded to texas That was the first. Oh hitter at wrigley. Seventy two and then Yeah alec mills Last year we call that remotely from chicago. That was in milwaukee and you know. He was a college walk-on and pretty neat story. And then the rodin knows it herself. And i carlos you know there's always going to be a question about it was also close to perfection. You know the one out in the ninety roberto perez on a foot but a no hitter has nothing to sneeze at but it would have been cooled if he had been able to just two more guys for perfect game. Yeah maybe we need a name for or maybe there is something That is a no hit. No walk game or there's an air as a blemish remember shelby miller with the cardinals and twenty thirteen. I think walked or hit eric. Young junior the first batter the game against colorado then went twenty seven. Twenty seven down have called that a hidden perfect game. Yeah and you're right. There are different You know it's kinda like the hall of fame there. There are tears of hall of famers. Once you become a member of the club your immortalized forever. But they're still there's a. There's a small group that kind of stands above everybody else right and i think with no hitters even and You know. aj burnett walked nine in a no hitter in two thousand one markets and no.

Baseball club is for male radius. The designated hitter. He's batting two thirty three with his eight. Rb runs which also leads. The indians and a pair of doubles race has also struck out the most with thirteen. Josh naylor read them with ten strikeouts batting to twenty five so altogether. The cleveland indians batting. Averages are a bit low. Like i said the team leader is rosario to fifty batting average. You have a player. That's played in ten games and ben gamble. They former milwaukee burr. He's yet to get an at-bats or he's yet to get a hit in his now. Thirteen at bats with the indians in his ten games. He struck out six times in those thirteen at bats are. There's a former fort wayne cap austin hedges. The catcher seen a lot of the fort wayne caps on this like from race again jordan. Love low of former pittsburgh pirate batting to seventeen. Along with roberto perez. You chang when he went through the system with the lake county captains. He was known as you. Ching chang but you chang batting two hundred so the bats for the indians haven't turned around the corner and for hoffman and gray and the sunday pitcher definitely. That's going to be a big thing. Keep the indians bats quiet. Let's look at the pitching side of things and we'll go by. Why is it happening again will go by the lowest era. Shane bieber other outstanding. Start twenty one and a third eleven hits five earned runs. That's all the runs. He's earned two home. Runs eight walks thirty five strikeouts and teams are betting one forty seven against him. So yeah. Shane bieber definitely a great prospect. Turned a pro with the cleveland. Indians logan allen like i mentioned he's the starter for cleveland. Two games and one and one to seventy year eight ten innings three run seven heads watt homerun given up five walks. Ak's trista mckenzie. He's in there. No record in one start want appearance out of the bullpen. For seventy or a seven and two thirds for runs on four hits one home run and eleven strikeouts to six at bats. The averages against these pitchers aren't bad. I mean the highest one is act. Please six to ninety one. Trevor steven out of the bullpen. To seventy eight. The highest is actually nick. Witrh grins three thirty He's got the highest on the staff of nine point eight two so the pitching's not bad for cleveland let's swap it and talk about the cincinnati reds pitching which coming into the series right now. The bullpen has a dra. Of what did i see from the enquirer for seventy seven. So yeah under five. Not entirely. Great again the starters. The starters are strong even without trevor. Bauer he took that massive deal from the dodgers which is deal overspends the cleveland indians. Which only make that money. Oh yeah probably not going to broadcasting..
