"Yeah, Nationals and Sean Doolittle is calling it a career. He's retiring after 11 seasons. The two -time All -Star helped the Nats to that World Series title back in 2019. He first pitched here from 2017 to 2020 and recorded a save in Game 1 of that World Series run. He went with a 174 ERA, two saves, and nine appearances during that time. 153 games during his time here in DC.

Cam Curl officially questionable but mostly probable after just being sick so we'll see how that affects. As far as Ron Rivera's team looking to go 3 -0 for the first time since 2005. They won the first two games yes but you get a Bills team that's pretty good so how big is this measuring stick? Pretty big You know it's to me it really is and you know they're one of the elite teams at the AFC. I know they're one -on -one but that records don't mean anything in this situation. This is one of the elite teams coming in you know we've got to gear up we've got to prepare get ourselves ready to go and give us a great opportunity to see see where we where we stand. And if they can win on Sunday then it kind of changes the narrative a little bit around the NFL I would think. If this team can get to 3 -0 it's going to be tough.

"Hasn't got as much attention to that should just what they've been able to do in terms of top down. I mean, Vladimir Gutierrez and some of the even those Younger named Tony Santana. Just having success at the big League levels of rookies and you know, if you if you can develop pitching, you're going to have success at the Big League Noble for a long time. The roster news today. TJ Antone activated Sean Doolittle is did fade your reaction to Sean being the odd man out. Yeah, I mean, it's tough for him just because it seemed like he was showing signs that he's pitching better. His velocity was up to 97 recently. But it's one of the things that the problem with the nine man bullpen is. There's going to be guys left out. You know, he's just really didn't have a consistent role only pitch four times this month. I'm here, Garrett. I mean, he's kind of the When he's going well. He's as good as the left as you can have an hand pitched in 11 days, so I think it's one of those things where the nine man bullpen was starting to catch up with them, Um and you just had to make a move and it speaks to Tony said Tian. If they could have optioned him to the minor leagues, kept too little and then brought back Santy in in September, with the rosters spent, 20 declared the 28. But it said they showed how important this week is keeping their town and Bloody Nipsey in the bunker. Bobby with options like Max Rock, Alejo Lopez and R. N. C. R to Triple A. Are you surprised? They're sticking with the nine man bullpen and going a man short on the bench? Little bit. I mean, I think it's just part of where their roster is. I mean, if you get rid of any reliever they have right now, except for T. J and so then of those guys have options, so you're going to have to designated for assignment. That people will make the point like those guys to a lot of those guys have struggled at times this year. What's the big deal? But those guys are going to get claimed teeth every did not last very far on a waiver wire. Chuck Dolittle get picked up pretty quick. I would be surprised if Michael Police got picked up pretty quick. When he got designated the first time, and I mean, there seems like the Dodgers were disclaiming everyone they can because you need pitching depth, especially for September. You know if injuries start to happen, say two or three guys get hurt in your bullpen. Don't have traits that you can get these guys back. So that's kind of the fear is trying to get rid of these guys that I think that spent the core reason why they accepted that man bullpen. Um and but I think in a perfect world, they go back down to eight and Have the extra guy off the bench. Last question. Been great with your time Does that does this third base thing of Suarez Moose continue or does does the left side of some combination of Barreiro and farmer enter the equation at some point I think they're still going to bride Moustakas and four to see how long they get. I mean, I know you'll get to a certain point where it's like you have to wait gave these guys have to produce. You relegate either of those guys the bench full time. You know you're losing a Are basically the rest of the season. I mean, that's hard to come back from to establish guys. Two guys who have done it their whole career that a lot of power on your bench, obviously, but, uh, you know, Jose Barreiro. He's a fantastic defense, the short stuff they need to give him. I think more opportunities, try to get him in the lineup more, but it's one of those things that they get. The stock at your store is going offensively. I think that brings the bigger impact your lineup than putting Guerrero in somewhere. Hey, we're getting close to game time. There was news this afternoon that you had to write about. It means a lot.

It hasn't been picked up. Do you pick up the option right now? Do you offer him a multiyear deal right now?

Vladimir Gutierrez returns the mound to face routed to less for pitch on the way is a strike called Backdoor Curveball. Starting off this is bad, too rowdy to last. The count is owned one Mark. How's Milwaukee treating you so far? Extremely well. I understand. You went for a little bit of a run today. Pitches high One ball one strike. You may have heard of that. Yes, uh, got to do three miles by the lake, and it's been It's been a challenge getting back into running these last few months as Ran a lot for many years and then didn't for pandemic. I've found it. So much of a challenge to get back into running that I haven't got into running to begin with. That's a good move. Yeah, well, you know, Mark the only running I remember you doing Was when you There we go. Oh, boy. He is he is. That's what ruined me. That's why I stopped running. Picking girls. Seriously old scabs. Hear the pitches up and in that was the best. That was outstanding entertainment for us that no, you stash stash stash stash ruined my running career. Those of us didn't know you and that we can actually see you the next day and tell you how good you look. It was fun. I don't regret doing it. Okay, well Something to be said for that. I'm not sure what foul down the left headline. Better better than the rest of us because none of us are out there running. And there's a reason for that. Yes, we didn't want to do that. Yeah. And bring back the stash stash. You noticed? Not yet. At least not yet. I may maybe I ruined it. You might have. They said, Well, you have hit an all time low. I bet it will be back. That was fun to watch. Here's the 22 pitch down and in Now it's a full count on rowdy Tellez. Three balls, two strikes account. Nobody on nobody out. And Gutierrez through the signs with his catcher Tucker Barnhart. Here's the right handers payoff pitch. Albeck. Mark get some injury updates to pass along. I believe it seemed like David Tuck a little bit about Nixon's L Today and a few others. Yeah, Nixon's L sounds like he's making some progress the last few days. He's been running with something he hadn't done since our last report, and he's been doing some running, doing some fielding, some hitting back in Cincinnati, and so far so good. They feel like he might be at the point where is turning a corner payoff down the way Ball four leadoff walk. Rowdy Tellez, who is just one for six in his brief tenure with the Brewers, not the guy that you want to walk to start an inning. It's not as though rowdy Tellez is a big burner on the basis, but Just a guy that's been a struggling hitter and You give the Brewers a base runner? Here's Jackie Bradley Jr. Hitting just 1. 67 6 homers 23 R B. I's That seems like that could be some good news with They're not ready to put a timetable on him. Yet they've kind of thrown out late July is a kind of in the ether as a possible return, but I think once he starts really running and doing it, that things might come quickly. Other guys that have been out. Of course, we've been talking about Lorenzen and Bullpen guys like Lucas Sims, TJ Antone. I I think it seems reasonable right that Lorenzen will be here to start the second half Correct Barring any Odd stuff that happens in Louisville during the All Star break. He's supposed to pitch on back to back days, but I would imagine he will be activated on the Friday the 16th to start that second half. The Oh one pitch to Jackie Bradley Jr swinging into miss and the count is open to how long before the Reds have to make a decision regarding Jeff Hoffman. Uh, also, I would think Friday the 16th. I don't. I don't know what is. I think you get a 30 day rehab assignment, and I'm going to guess that at some point Maybe on day 30 might be close to the date of the 16th as well. I think you'll see him in the Reds uniform. I'm going to. I'm going to predict the bullpen. Ground ball pulled foul right side. I'll go right there with you. I think that sounds pretty reasonable and I would imagine there's gonna be some changes in that bullpen. There's a couple guys are not going to be here that are here right now. You get the sense that a guy like Sean Doolittle. As Really have you seen enough here over his last few games on the move to first base that he's kind of saved his Positioning on this scene. That's a tough one. He's had been better, that's for sure. And he's been working on it. But I would say he's definitely still hasn't moved up from those bottom. Number six or number seven or eight guys. Jackie Bradley Jr swings and it's a lazy fly to center field. Wait. The ball is not carrying even a little bit in this place tonight, which is good news for Vladimir Gutierrez. I thought Bradley might have got that one pretty good, and it just died out there in medium depth center field. That's not the first one I've seen do that tonight. Sound good. It did. Look pretty good off the bat, and then just Faded into the glove of Tyler and a queen. One man out here in the second inning. And now the pitcher Freddie Peralta. This is not a guy that is known for. His aptitude at the plate. Peralta has just one hit. He'll be bunting here with rowdy to less at first base until is not a burner. Lob the first check on to less and less looks back to Gutierrez thinking what in the world makes you think that I would be running? Certainly isn't is built. Just keeping them honest, I guess Here's the stretch and the pitch breaking ball and a beauty over the inside corner. He had Peralta bailing out on that pitch and the count his own one. It'll be really interesting Mark. I think to see how the Reds handle the bullpen around the All Star break in with guys coming back. Gives David maybe some flexibility to things that he wasn't able to do. Some of the guys he's had because of struggles. But now that he's got a sense on what art warrant can do it, some other guys line drive caught by India flipped the first safe. Thank India might have been able to get it over hand throw, or maybe even a little side arm flipped at first. Instead, he tried along Underhanded scoop and couldn't get anything on it. But now they know what art Warren can do..

Now, you would think every manager would hopefully love watching his team play, but I think there's something more to it than just a throwaway cliche Aid line. Um, what I find myself really enjoying about this team. I, um as the game goes on, I keep a note pad and I got things down. Um, and this is four nights like tonight for Kelsey Chevrolet, extra innings, and I'll put little stars and our ass trick or a triangle and different things next to him, So I know that when it's time for the show, I can look at my sheet. And I see the key points during the game. What stands out to me? Is the number of different names I write down night tonight as contributors to wins the number of different players who are on a given night. Some may do something big. Some may do something little But I look at at the end of the night, I say, look at all the different players who in some way, shape or form. Helped lead this team to win tonight. Maybe it was somebody picking somebody else up. I mentioned it with with Tommy, and it's very clear to me and I think it's just a really cool element of this team in particular. It is clear the other 25 guys live and die with a you, Julio Suarez, his success and failure. You can tell it means you can tell when he's going through a tough time. That the other guys wants so badly for him to get through to successful times. And when he finds those successful times you've seen the shots in the dugout. You see the reaction on the field. How much it means not just a U N e o. But how much it means to the rest of the guys on that team, which clearly is an indicator of how much respect they have for it. It's easy for the fan to throw up their hands, Alright, went over 44 strikeouts. It's clear if you watch how this team interacts with him. They lived through a radio Suarez in the ups and downs of what his season has been like, and I'll go back to what I said last week, there were there were two occasion that jumped out to me the same night. It was what the Thursday night game. When Farmer hit the home run in the bottom of the night to tie the game. There was a shot in the dugout of Suarez giving farmer a bear hug. And that was the night farmer are. Suarez was benched. I think it was the second of two nights in a row where Suarez didn't play. And he wasn't sulking. He wasn't pouting. He wasn't in the corner by himself. He hadn't gone back to the clubhouse. He was in the middle of the dugout to greet Kyle Farmer and give him a bear hug with a smile. Congratulate him on the home run. And then when Tyler Stevenson had the walk off hit The first guy over the railing it onto the field. Was Tucker Bernhardt. The guy who shares the position with him. The guy who has to have in the back of his mind the understanding that you know what I've got an option. At the end of this year on my contract, I might be back. I might not be back, but I know every time Tyler Stevenson has success, it's a It's probably a step closer to him, getting more opportunities for success and the more opportunities he gets, The fewer opportunities I'm gonna get. And yet with that, as the backdrop to wear, Tucker's career is and where it's headed. He was leading the charge out of the dugout to celebrate with Tyler Stevenson. That's what jumps out to me. And so when I hear David Bell say, it might sound funny, but I love watching our team play. I wonder if you feel that same vibe. And since five on 37491 7800 the big £1.700 on a TNT, I got an email from Mike. Glance at Lance McAllister calm and this was after that game on Thursday night. He said Lance after watching the game last night, and then the postgame interviews with Winker, Castano's and David Bell, I think that this year's team will go down as one of my all time favorites. It may seem odd to others that I would say that about a team that has a at the time 500 record. I think a lot of Reds fans feel the way I do. In a strange odd way. This team reminds me of the movie Major league. This is a tough, caring, selfless team. Playing is one even know it appears they don't have the full support of ownership and I don't I don't want to open up that door to get into that element of it. But I think what he hit on ties in with what David Bell has said ties in with what I've said, and I wonder if it's something that you're nodding your head at. I used the 1990 connection there. There was a vibe on that 1919. There was a vibe on the 90 team. But the 99 team was one of those teams Sean case. He has said that that's the favorite team he ever played on. Because of the personalities and the connection they had, and the joy in which they played the game and the number of different guys that contributed to victory night in and night out. I mean, you look at this Reds bullpen right now, and they may I hope not. They may give up four runs tonight. The odds say their duty to have an implosion to give up some runs. I know the odds aren't in their favor of continuing to not give up any runs whatsoever during the five game winning streak. They haven't given up an earned run have not given up a single earned run in the last five games of the winning streak, and that's 16 innings pitched. But what I look at is All those different components of the bullpen and all the different stages of their their careers. Sean Doolittle as As Tommy alluded to has reinvented himself on the fly. He was a guy who was throwing it seemed like a fastball like 99 a half percent of the time and was throwing something other than that occur. But, like a half percent of the time was like, like You don't think this is going to work, do you? I mean, you can always still grow a a 92 93 mile per hour fastball so many times before teams start clobbering it and they were but look what he's done of late. You got another out with a curve ball. Last night, he's reinvented himself on the fly. Amir Garrett, how many people wanted Amir Garrett gone in whatever way shape or form possible bus waiver, a transaction a release what people wanted him punished. People just wanted him as far away as possible. I think it's nine consecutive appearances. He's not given up a run and I want to say it's 14 of the last 15. He hasn't given up a run, and they've done it like piecemeal ng it like all right, let's be careful here. Let's let's build things up again and maybe build up some confidence giving. Let's Let's give him you know a couple of batters here in a couple of batters there, It's got to be three, obviously, with the rule. Let's give him in the sixth inning, maybe in the seventh inning, all right. He's built some things up a little bit. Let's give him the ninth inning and see what he does with it, and they built him back by doing it that way. Brad broke Was released by two teams in the past couple of months and was sitting at Triple A after the red signing, and Brad Brock is now getting very important out there, not giving him out in the fifth or sixth. They're giving them out in the eighth and giving him a chance to go into the ninth. You've got a sausage. I remember when they called up. Oh, sick. I said dosage. I said, what an answer. They're going to a guy with a career five earned run average in his major league career. Look what else it has done..

In addition to the Cubs in the central, it's the Mets in the East. San Francisco in the West. A note from down on the farm. This is this is pretty amazing, and I don't know how many more chapters there are to the story. But this is a pretty amazing couple of new chapter's being added to it. Nick Howard was the Reds first round pick in 2014. Out of Virginia. He was a closer And he battled multiple arm and shoulder and back injuries and other issues over the years and never advanced past double A developed a case of the yips. He could not throw the ball over the plate. He had trouble just playing catch with his teammates and throwing them the ball. He was released by the Reds in March of 2019. He went to the Florida baseball ranch to try to get right. It's kind of a version of Dr Line. He got healthy. He got his confidence back. He spent some time in the Royals organization before they released him. The Reds re signed him. He's now 28 years old, healthy Pitching for the first time since 2019 and he's at Chattanooga with the lookouts. He's made eight appearances this year, pitching nine and two thirds innings. He is not a lot of run. Eight appearances, nine and two thirds innings 14 strikeouts and he is said to be throwing in the upper nineties. Getting up to 97 98 miles an hour. How cool is that story? First round pick seven years ago for the Cincinnati Reds. Nic Coward. He was the 19th pick overall, and you talk about a struggle. He pitched it at a Virginia he had saved 20 games. His senior his final season helped lead that team to the college world, Syriza He pitched the 2014 the back half of that season at Dayton, where he made 11 appearances for the Dragons, one on a Daytona in 2015, where his earned run average was nearly seven in 2016 at Daytona, his earned run average was again nearly seven in 2018 at Daytona. His earned run average was 6 23. Has not pitched since 2019 and getting it done on the comeback trail for the Chattanooga Lookouts in eight appearance is good for him. That is a that's really cool story. Alright, May is in the books Reds turn the calendar, too. June, The Reds went 12 and 15 in the month of May there leading hitter Nick Castano's hit 409 for the month. Jesse Winker hit 3 30 for the month.

I's stories had eight homers, Winker had seven soirees drove in 17 Nay Quinn drove in 16. Appearances. Pitching wise Sean Doolittle led the Reds and appearances in May with 22 Curse and former had 20. Lucas Simms, 19 Garrett 18 CNL Perez 17, TJ Antone, 17 Wade Miley led the Reds in wins for the month with five Tyler Malli. Five different Reds saved a game in the month of May. There is no designated closer on this team, and in that bullpen, five different pitchers saved games. Simms head three, Antone had three and toned, led the staff and earned run. Average.

Consider to extend the bailout the airlines all the way through September, and that could be to the tune of 14 billion. And that would be for those keeping score at home. The third such a bailout for airlines they received, of course, 25 billion Last March. Recently, another 15 billion that's scheduled to run out on the 15th or she'd made 31st of March and this would be the next 1 14 billion. Taxpayer money, most of which does not have to be repaid. That would keep the airline's going if you will, through September and I say going, Mike, the Big Four airlines are sitting on about $32 billion in cash, so it's not like any of them are in the process of Prepared to go the business or anything. Most of this is for payroll support, keeping people on the payroll that airlines at this point really don't need but That doesn't mean the money is going to stop. We could be looking at 14 billion as far as the next round of stimulus money. Well, all right, then dealt, announces they will continue blocking the middle seat through April. Exactly. And while the load factors 75% often so, so they're not giving up a great deal of revenue on some of their flights for right now, the only carrier that's suggesting they're going to continue to do so.

"Two announcements making it official Sean Doolittle gets a one year deal and Dee Gordon D. Strange, Gordon Strange. His mother's a name tribute to her. She is she had passed away and decided to honor her by including that in his Full name Dee Gordon introduced today officially on a minor league deal with an invite to major league camp. Sean Doodle do Little said two things that caught my ear today, Sean, he is 34. He's a guy who's had some six ahead great success in the major legs. Not so much the last two years where he's become much more hittable has dealt with some injuries. Knee oblique and some other things has lost some life in the fast ball, but he kind of feels good. What he did this offseason. Spend some time with Dr Line That's Kyle Bowties. Outfit and worked with some guys in the Reds organization said he knows Sonny Gray was asked why, and he mentioned this is the first time in his major league career he's been a free agent and got to choose where he's pitched. He's been with the Oakland A's been with the Washington nationals. He was asked why he chose the Reds listen to what he said. The steps the Reds have taken on the developmental side, especially with pictures. Some of this thing new age stuff, I guess, new ages and quotes it's been around for what, Like five years or so at least, and the way that they're developing guys the way that they're using data the way that they're using analytics and interpreting it, Um, you know, tol players. Having their best chance you know to be the best version of themselves throughout the course of a long season was something that I was really excited about. We've been using a lot of those similar. You know the terminologies and the philosophy is that's how I've been training over the course of the off season and I know the Reds. They definitely speak that language. I know that they're able to Interpret those kinds of things, break them down and really help their guys stay on top of their game over the course of the season, So that was another thing that I was really excited about as well. Sean do little news. Remember the Reds bullpen earlier today? He was asked Mark Sheldon, asking the question he was asked about His role in this bullpen. And if he believes that he's been a guy who's been a team's closer, he saved 54 games and back to back seasons combined 2019 for the Nationals. He had 29 saves the year before that he had 25 saves you before that, 21. He saved 111 games in his career. He was asked if he's coming into this situation, believing he will be the Reds closer. Take a listen No, I'm super open minded about how it might be used. I don't think I have. I don't think I have any any rights to come in and expect to compete, or there'll be handed that spot after the year I had last year and but I will say, um, I think I've made a ton of improvements. I'm really excited about where I'm at heading into spring training. I hope to be able to pitch well enough that I'm in the mix there late in games, But I also know I have to earn that spot. You know, I was up front with the Reds throughout negotiations that I'm open to a number of different roles. I'm at a point in my career where I just want to win. And you know, having to lefties in the bullpen, you know if Amira is in that if he slides into that closer spot Um, you know, I can match up with the lefties in front, you know, to try to help get him the ball in the same situation. Um, uh, You know, I've pitched in a matchup role as a lefty. I've been a setup, man. I've been a closer I have experience doing a number of different things that I think, uh You know my help provide some flexibility and like I said, I just want to. I want to win and whatever that takes, you know, as long as it's something that's communicated up front. We have a game plan going in. I'm ready to do whatever. Sean Doolittle earlier today veteran been there done that has a World Series ring has pitched in the post season five different times but has struggled over the last two seasons. Become much more hittable and has mentioned has lost the fastball. They've been getting back and your Reds bullpen right now. Slot him, however. You like Lucas Simms. I'm here, Garrett. Sean Doolittle. No. A Ramirez who they got for Rice L Iglesias and then it is a hodgepodge of reclamation projects.

That's asking an awful lot on the back end of a bullpen of You would have of that group. You would feel good about Garrett. You would feel good about Simms, maybe a tick less with the elbow issues. You would think perhaps TJ Antone is in there if he's not in the rotation. Beyond that, Hmm. I don't know. We're gonna find out. That's good news or bad news up next.

"Maybe Sean Doolittle. The signing of Sean Doolittle is not a I don't even know even if it doesn't work out. I don't know. It's a bad signing. They got him. According to MLB Network for $1.5 Million, Sean do little is left handed. He will be There will be 34 in September. But I guess in the bigger picture of this this is this is kind of the theme of the offseason, buy lottery tickets or scratch offs and throw darts. And work on the reclamation projects. On the plus side. Sean Doolittle is left handed. He's experienced. He's pitched in the post season five different years. Including on a world championship teams got got a ring. Um, on the plus side. If you go back to 2018, Sean Doolittle was lights out. I mean, lights out 43 games. His earned run average was +160. Had 25 saves in 45 innings. He struck out 60 in 45 innings He gave up 25 hits in 2018. 2019 here. A bumps up to 405. Last season, ER, a balloon to 5. 87 dealt with a knee injury dealt with an oblique injury and he had become expendable. The nationals were moving on, added Brad Hand to their bullpen. Doolittle's velocity has dropped significantly in the last year and a half toe two years from somewhere closer to the mid nineties to this past season in the low nineties. Maybe that is something that with health and he said today, Jesse Daughtry of The Washington Post tweeted the following Sean Doolittle is going to spend the offseason in Seattle and work on his mechanics it Dr Line. Dr Line. That's Kyle Bowties think that's where a lot of reds that's where a lot of pictures go. You certainly understand the Red's influence in the Kyle Brody influenced all that, he told The Washington Post. Did Sean do little, the newest Cincinnati right quote? I wanna prove to teams that I am healthy that the version, actually, this was AH, September of last season. When he was recovering, said I want to prove the team's I'm healthy and that the version of me who came off the injured list is starting is better than the version they might see in 2021, meaning he thought, if healthy, and if he reworked his mechanics a little bit of Dr line, he could get back to what he wasps. The Reds are taking a flyer that he can do that. Last two seasons, he's been much more hittable. Um, last two seasons, he's been about a league average pitcher. So if you're the Reds, and you can get a veteran left hander with experience who has had success in the past and it cost you 1.5 million. All right, well, then you can stick him somewhere in the sliding order of Amir Garrett. And Lucas Simms and let's assume for purposes of this exercise. Michael Lorenzen is in the rotation that you get TJ and tone. Then in the bullpen, you've got Sean Doolittle in the bullpen. You've got no A Ramirez in the bullpen. You've got Hoffman, who they acquired for Robert Stephenson, and then you've got a mish mash a bunch of arms. Jose Day Leone and others. You're going to try to sort through, pick out and probably rotate through with their minor like options throughout the season to keep a fresh bullpen and kind of pick up the slack of your starters, in theory are gonna be able to go up to 182 100 innings because of what happened Ah, year ago, so Sean knew little on the surface. At 1.5 worth roll the dice. But I would piss up this morning and this to me. It It gives me a case of deja vu. All over again If I can quote Yogi Bear up. Because it feels like off season's gone by of picker was a 2014 or 2015. They signed Jason Marquis. And Brennan Bosch. And Burke Beeton hop. And Kevin Gregg. Remember, they traded a prospect for 38 year Old out theater, Marlon Byrd. They claimed Kiva Samson on waivers. You know where I'm going? This from a frustration standpoint. And I've said this before the optics of this just don't they make your they make you kind of cringe. A year ago. Right now, we were celebrating what they had done as an organization. Holding up to the bar for $150 million in free agent moves. And and one year later. After six years of rebuilding. And the return on the investment was two weeks of good baseball than a postseason appearance in an expanded playoffs and then a quick departure after not scoring a run in 22 innings. We're down to buying lottery tickets and throwing darts and sorting through the reclamation projects. And to me, the optics of that are tough to stomach. Because the opportunity is here. We've discussed this before, and I'm going to reference a piece by Fangraphs today. That shows just how close the projections are of what this division Could look like Top to bottom and how many wins it might take for the division. And on one hand, the Reds will say clearly they feel Hey, you know what? This division is so poor We can hang around this thing. When wouldn't you much rather than say, you know what? After six years of rebuilding after 16 losing seasons in the last 20 This thing is ripe for the picking. And instead of Dumpster diving. Let's make a move that makes a difference.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on the Return of Sports in America
"Dr Chee Hello. Thank you so much for joining us. It's my pleasure to be with you. Thank you for having me. Dr Anthony. FAUCI is the director of the national. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He also coincidentally went to the same high school as me Regis High School in New York City. Dr. You're a very busy man. I'm so grateful for the time you've given us so. I have many pressing things to ask you about, but I would feel negligent as a sports journalist. If I didn't start with the action on the fields, the Great Anthony Fauci was there to throw out the first pitch and this was not a great pitch. He's an epidemiologist is first pitch on opening day last Thursday. happened. Well. It certainly was a mishap part I had been practising for two days before a walk down that I thought was sixty feet. And it was really probably forty five. And I was throwing throwing in throwing and I got it right. But only was at forty five feet and I kinda hurt my mom because I haven't thrown a baseball literally in decades. So as I was getting ready to go out on the mound, my arm was killing me. But I said Hell I could suck it up and just throw it the way I'd been practising when I got to the mound. I said Oh my God Sean doolittle looked like he was two hundred feet away. A. So. What I did was I completely changed the form of my throw and instead of just throwing it lobby, get over him, which would have landed right in front of him. I wound up and threw it like a bullet only. It just went way off to the left. So it was my bed all the way. In terms of the real baseball news this week, it concerns the fact that over a dozen members of the organization tested positive for Covid Nineteen and Major League Baseball has since spawned Marlins Games until Sunday after some teams including the one you root for the nationals they raised concerns about traveling to Miami to actually play. So what's your assessment of how major? League Baseball has handled this corona virus up rick? You. Know I think they've handled it well to be honest with you in that. They've done virtually everything that you do. To try to get the goal was to protect the health and the welfare of the players and of the personnel associated with the team when I had discussion with some of the officials of different teams as well as of MLB in general, we went over the different kinds of protocols that they would need, testing and things. One of the things that came up as a big concern is what happens if a cluster of players get infected and how you gonNA handle that with that wind up, not only shutting down the team? Would it then impact on other teams that would be playing? So it was a consideration I think we're going to have to take. On a day by day week by week basis I hope. that it doesn't interfere completely with the progression of this truncated season because the players certainly WanNa play, they don't want to endanger their health that's for sure and the fans at least on TV would like to see it. So I think we're going to have to see what happens over the next few days to a week, but I can tell you that a lot of good faith. Faith effort was put into this by the owners by the play reps by the players themselves. So I hope that this is just a temporary setback and that we can continue the season. But again, the most important thing is the safety and the welfare of the players under the personnel associated and the place family too. Because, if you get infected, you've got to be concerned about spreading it.
Jeff Passan on MLBPA's Return-To-Play Proposal
"The negotiations between Major League Baseball and the Players Association to start the two thousand twenty season, Continue Jeff Passan reported. Reported last night that the player Ford a counterproposal on Sunday, in which they suggested a one hundred and fourteen game season from June thirtieth to October. Thirty first, which Jeff wrote is expected to be immediately dismissed by the League. The union remained steadfast. The players should receive their full prorated salaries. The Union did suggest possible salary defers than acknowledgment by the players that amid the coronavirus, pandemic and unrest. Flow issues could prove problematic for the owners The players proposal also included the idea of an expand class for two years major league. Baseball's proposal suggests one year postseason that goes from ten teams to fourteen a salary advance of one hundred million dollars split among players during the second spring training, additional commitments to players, wearing microphones in the field and other broadcasts enhancement, and there was an offer to hold events such as an off season, all star game or Homerun Derby to generate additional revenue. This was a hopeful Development Sean doolittle, the nationals. Reliever tweeted out that the Washington major leaguers will provide salary relief to minor leaguers. Who saw their salaries cut last week? Covers baseball for ESPN, and Jeff we just went through the details of your report from last night. I think the most important question this morning is what's next? It's a great question buster because I think what's next is going to be the most important element of this entire thing in that is. What's the reaction of owners after the unions first proposal? And I think you did a great job in your Sunday, notes column of pointing out the fragility of this on account of there, being owners who don't WanNa play in two thousand and twenty. If this proposal angers the the League side owners in particular enough where what is a relatively small block of honors, now suddenly starts to gain a little bit of political traction in trying to convince some of the more moderate owners that this is a lost cause, and it's just not worth playing the two thousand twenty season. Then I think they're actually in trouble, but if if the. door being cracked open for furrows which it was done in this proposal leads to something more substantive and productive. I think something can come together on relative quick order because that's that's how it has to like. If they want to play this year, something needs to get this week and it's on owners right now to come back and really facilitate that after the players offer. Deaf I'm glad that they're talking I. Mean it's a good thing that they're talking because there's been so much time that's passed in the last Three and a half years since the CBA of two thousand sixteen, in which they haven't been talking, but my God they are so far apart. It's incredible to me. The what this is shutdown lake March twelfth thirteenth, and yet it still feels like to use the football comparison. It's like we're at the one yard line. There's about fifty eight seconds to go and there ninety nine yards of field ahead of them when you're talking about the financial issues. Either the safety protocol, and then the challenge of pulling everything together which I'm sure you're hearing the same thing from general managers. That I am like this is not something you can just execute overnight. No in regarding that latter part I assume that that they have known for awhile now. What the expectations are going to be and I I know some general managers that I've talked with said they're. They're trying to get their facilities in order, so you know secondary, club houses and a lot of the things that are in the health and safety protocol. They've at least been trying to start, but let's let's look at the logistics of getting everybody around the country right now. between coded and. And and the civil unrest that's going on travels knock going to be particularly easy and getting people from place to place city city. You don't even know where you're. Joe It half the time when it comes to either get into the city or are you going to be your Spring Training Facility? I mean these these are all open questions right now. but yeah I I would say instead of the one yard line. You've got like both sides in their tunnels right now or in their. I mean that that is how far apart they are, and and the biggest question to me has been.
