Does Kirby Smart Get Enough Credit? Coach Chan Gailey Weighs In
"Kirby smart doesn't get enough credit for what we've talked about before that? I think it was a saving quality. You've that growing up of players that they came in say is a four and the coaching and others helped to be a four and a half or a 5. Even a 5, do you think? Because I've watched this lightly and it wasn't true for you. Mark Rick could recruit very well. But whatever they came in at and they seemed to just sort of stay there. Kirby seems to have the opposite effect when you look at a macaque. You look at a stance advantage. You look at some of those offensive linemen. The defensive back walk homes. I mean, is that something that's began to in my mind sort of signify the Kirby smart coaching? Yeah, well, what they've done is they said a standard. And they're not going to, they're not going to accept less than that standard. And if a guy has a four or 5 star and he comes in there and he won't meet that standard, then he realizes he's not going to play because he's not willing to get better. They're going to play the guys that are willing to get better and be the best they can be by the time they get through play at Georgia. And if a guy doesn't want to do that, you ain't going to play it, Georgia.

How Your Bad Is Worse Than Your Good
"Now ladies and gentlemen, let me get back to Kanye. Let's go to clip too, 'cause I missed out on clip too. Let's roll clip two. Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table. Especially Hitler. Okay, let me talk about this for a minute. What do Hitler is the problem, Hitler May he may have brought value at some point, but his murderous ways counseled all the value. What value could he have bring to the nation that could overcome what he did? Let me just say this. That's like being a guy who's a football coach. And he coaches on a team and he molests half of the players. Because he won a championship and he was coaching kids on a team voluntarily. Let's just say he was volunteering his time. But then you go in molest kids, nothing that you're good is pointless at this point. You've ruined kids for life. The championships mean nothing. Because you have literally ruined a generation of children. It's the same thing with Hitler. Like, maybe he did some good inventions. And maybe he, you know, did some things that are good. cares when you murdered millions of people? You ordered the murder a slaughter of millions of people. Do you go down forever as being a deadbeat?
The Modern Federal Reserve Keeps Getting It Wrong
"At the fed out with their statement, so to speak today, he was out speaking in remarks this is Jerome Powell at the brookings institute and he is trying to address some of these concerns that people have about how aggressively they're going to move. I should point out that most market watchers thought that they would back off and we'd be looking at a half point interest rate hike in the month of December as opposed to the 75 basis points, he basically indicated that that would be the case. Let me share with you some of the things that he said. Despite some promising developments, Powell said we have a long way to go and restoring stability. He went on to say, thus, it makes sense to moderate the pace of our rate increases as we approach the level of restraint that will be sufficient to bring inflation down. So they think they're getting there. They think they're getting there. I mean, you guys managed to come down under 8% and somehow that's that's what you need. I think it's going to take a lot more. He went on. The time for moderating the pace of rate increases may come as soon as the December meeting. Hey, so much for the mystery in this relationship, right? You know what, years ago. Many, many years ago, it used to be that the fed governors, you know, they didn't speak. They were all those ideas about, okay, what's in the briefcase? How is Greenspan holding his briefcase as he crosses the street and then Greenspan started to talk some more, right? Remember the Greenspan speak, but that was effectively sort of in code, and over the years you've had these heads of the Federal Reserve, you've had governors there at the fed speak more and more and more effectively taking that mystery out of the relationship, which I think is kind of a shame, because now it's all about what Jerome Powell says. People think, okay, we know he's telegraphing this. And by the way, when they telegraph these things, they try to stay pretty much true to their words. It's not like they're saying one thing and doing another because they know that would really scare the Mark. I mean, if I were them and by the way, I say this as a journalist who wants all the information I can get, but I could do without all the chatter from these folks like Powell, who then feel they have to follow through on whatever it is that they're saying. Because they keep getting it wrong. And they've been getting it wrong for a really long time. And I think if you look back through history, what you've seen is that the modern Federal Reserve just consistently messes up every single time. And as a result, you get big bubbles and you get recessions and all the things that they're supposed to do, right? Iron out the fluctuations in the economy. They wind up in some way, shape or form unintentionally helping to create, and thus we have the problem that we even have right now,
Chris Reed: Having a Prophetic Gift
"Yeah, well, I started preaching at the age of 14. I grew up in a particular Pentecostal denomination. And so from the age of 14 until 18, my parents are driving me to my speaking engagements just that developed by word of mouth. And then I administered over 200 churches before I was 18. I became an assistant pastor at 19, and then at 25 years old, I just turned 25, I moved from where I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, to a town, two and a half hours north called Peru Indiana, and for 12 years there, we pastured their my wife and I and started there with 7 people. It's in a small town of 12,000 and over the period of 12 years it grew to about 250 people, but something began to happen in 2011, my ministry prior to that was just kind of revelatory teaching, preaching, evangelistic pastoral. I did see some gifts of the spirit, the gift of tongues, some forms of discernment and prophecy and some healing. But then I just kind of went through a real dark time low period of time in my life and around 2011 and a lot of times that's where God meets people. I mean, he meets a Jonah in the belly of a fish. He, you know, he meets a lot of people in a jail cell or in a hospital bed, and I was just in a personal period, a low period of time in my life, and I started having these encounters with God after already pastoring for quite some time. And I would feel this electricity that would come over me and every time it happened, I would wake up knowing there was a Supernatural being in the room. And this went on for about a year and shortly after that, I just started realizing, wow, I'm beginning to know things about people. And

"What I'm going to bring to the table as far as a human being to the relationships I'm in to the world is going to be exponential in the second half of my life instead of the first. I always feel like I always say our 20s is all about splattering pain. So it's like the first half of your life, the sun part is all about experimentation. You know? And it's great because we have a lot more energy then and so yeah, we're experimenting. We are running at things very fast, falling down, getting back up. And sometimes chasing our tail, you know? And I think we're meant to do that because all of that experimentation turns into wisdom and knowledge and lessons as we enter the second half of our lives. And so I want to remind you I don't know where you're at if you like me are also now moving into or already, if you're already in the second half of your life to focus less on their wrinkles, to see the wrinkles as tree rings, right? To focus less on how your body is changing and how it's, you know, you're more saggy or you have more grays in your hair and to focus more on you as a whole being and your passion, your productivity and your purpose. Is now illuminating is now at its potential. And I love this because we had to have we had to run and experiment and fall down a lot for us to now take these lessons and in the second half of our life make a greater dent. And you know, I think the misconception or what we tell ourselves is that we make a bigger debt when we have more energy, it's actually not true. The greater dent comes, I think, later, after you've gone through many hero's journeys and come back, you know, come back to the village changed as you connect more to yourself as you understand yourself better as you create new definitions. About life, love, everything.

"Quality over quantity. Okay, so my point is, and I don't think this is a gender thing. I think this is a human thing. We all have this in our lives. We all go through this character arc. I know for me. Being 49, I think now I'm approaching, or maybe I'm already there, this male menopause, you know? And it's not just physical changes, like if I eat an M and M, I can literally see the M and M in my stomach, poking out of my stomach. The next day, right? Before I get inhaled 6 donuts. And I wouldn't say anything. And so metabolism, testosterone. Your body just changes. Chemically physically, both men and women. And so. That is a sign of you entering the second half of your life. So on one hand, you have the frustrations of your body changing, you know, of metabolism, slowing down, and you may have less energy you may not sleep as well. You may have to watch what you eat more, right? You may not be as strong or as fit. I don't know. Some people, right? Generally speaking, and this is the, I guess, negative, the negatives of entering, quote unquote, male menopause, or I don't want to make it a male thing, just the second half of your life. But what we don't focus on because I think so many people focus on that, I get stuck there too because of the world we live in and the weight that we put on aesthetics. Looking and feeling a certain way. But where the wrinkles become tree rings is the second half of your life. You know, when you have wisdom, when you have a better relationship with yourself, all the inner stuff because of your story, what you've been through, all of that now starts to shine in your second. Half of your life. And so this last sentence here, it is the passage to the most passionate, powerful, productive, and purposeful time of one's life.
"second half" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Defense picked up their intensity in the second half, and that helped to force turnovers and it helped to jump start their offense as well. We know they can be better defensively, what's their ceiling on that end of the floor? Certainly not what last year's team was or the season before, either, but I think they can be better there. The question is consistency. Can they do it on a consistent basis? So far that answer has been no. But again, I don't want to be too negative because tonight we got this is literally been the first kind of kickback and relaxed fourth quarter, at least the bulk of the fourth quarter that we've seen from the Lakers all season. All season. This is the first one, and we're what? 22 games in now? 23 games? 23 games in now. And this is the first one that the Lakers have really been able to cruise to a big dominant victory. So let's not lose sight of that, but yes, the defense is still. It's still a concern. And hopefully it's something that they can fix. I think part of it is intensity. It's just an effort, essentially, and part of it is also how the personnel was put together in terms of they don't have a lot of stand out individual defenders, and that's bled into their defensive schemes. But again, that's a longer topic for another day. Jerry O back said THT for Desmond Bain. I like Jerry. I like Desmond bane a lot for the Memphis grizzly. I don't think they're looking to move him anytime soon. He was my target, had the Lakers kept their pick rather than trade in the den of Schroeder deal. He was the guy I wanted to see wind up with the Lakers. You guys have known on the scene on the channel. I've interviewed him a few times. Great, great kid. Works extremely hard. I thought he would have been a great fit with the Lakers, but I don't think the grizzlies are looking to move on from him at this point. He's been great for them. All right, let's get into the 360 awards. So of the stars. Obviously, LeBron James was out and we still need to talk about that. But of the Lakers stars, who is the best? Who is the best tonight? Was that Anthony Davis? Or was it Russell Westbrook? Chat, let me know what you guys are thinking, coming in from Twitter from YouTube from Facebook, fire it off. Who was the best who deserves the 360 award tonight? Was it AD? Or was it Russ? Looking down right now, I've.

"Monk AD Dwight. As your starters, that's what Joel Hernandez is suggesting that the Lakers go to. Now that LeBron James is out, Russ, Wayne Ellington, Malik monk, Anthony Davis, Dwight, Howard. Not bad. I mean, he gives you the floor spacing. We certainly saw. I think this was one of the keys to the second half. Was that particular lineup? Why it worked? Dwight doesn't give you floor spacing, but monk and Ellington are dangerous enough as shooters behind the ark that Russell Westbrook gets driving lanes. And that made such a big difference for his game. He had opportunities to get to the rib, and then when he was a threat to score at the rim, guess what he started doing, kicking out to shooters. He had the one where he did kind of a 360 in the air and kicked the ball out to. I believe it was Wayne Ellington who knocked down the three makes a big difference. When you put shooters around Russell, Westbrook, who to thank it. Arsenal law from YouTube said, did you hear? Yes, I was just reading this. I believe it was Dan wakey, was just tweeting about this. So he said, did you hear someone bet the kings would win, but $265,000 that the kings would win and it was the king's plus 5 at the time because we didn't know that LeBron was out at that point. And the kings would end the point total will be under 227 for $235,000. That person still came out ahead because they hit on the under bet apparently. So that worked out for them. But lily's according to Dan wiki. But yeah, look, if you've got that much money to throw around on a basketball game, you're really gonna bet it on a Lakers kings game. On a Tuesday night, I guess if it makes the game more interesting, you can go ahead and do it. But they lucked out and were able to still come out ahead even though the Lakers wound up winning and they bet on the.

We'll talk a little bit about that. But then, oh my, the second half, they turned it on in a big way. Wind up winning one 17 to 92 without LeBron James. So a lot to talk about tonight. We'll talk about LeBron. What's going on with him? Well, some talk about this win.

Out due to COVID protocols or health and safety protocols, I guess I should say. We'll talk a bit about that in a little while, but Russell Westbrook four turnovers almost all of them in fact happened in the first half, second half Russell Westbrook, tremendous. 9 for 21 shooting, one of 5 from deep, it's not great for 7 from the free throw line..

Texas a and M and old mess, can Texas a and M stay within fighting range of Alabama to play Georgia in the SEC championship game North Carolina state, wake forest, wake forest just suffering their first loss. This is for first place in the ACC big game there. So again, a lot of big matchups, lot of games to be played I am fine with the college football playoff rankings so far. And of course I'm fine with it. Michigan's at 6 ahead of Michigan state as something all wear and say proudly all day long, but Michigan's going to have to live up to that ranking and it's all going to be played out on a football field everything will be resolved. And then one more thing, just to do my own home once again. I was right on my first college basketball picks of the season. Kansas beat Michigan state last night was in control most of that game.

"Now I'm going to react to last night's college football playoff rankings. I gave you my top 6 on Monday. I gave you Georgia, Alabama, Oregon, Ohio State Cincinnati, Michigan state. Most first 5, I was right on. Georgia was number one. Clear cut favorite there offensively defensively to me. There's a lot of separation right now at least between them and the rest of the pack. Then you have the rest of the team's not play so well, Alabama, Ohio State Cincinnati, Oregon, so you just keep every team slide them up behind Alabama. Sure, that's what you do. You move Oregon to three Ohio State of four. 5 Cincinnati, I signed with that because you have a Michigan state loss and they've also haven't looked great a lot this season just like Cincinnati, but Cincinnati is undefeated. Here's a kicker. Michigan, Michigan state. Michigan and Michigan see both 8 and one Michigan state just lost however. Video on the head to head over Michigan, but Michigan is slotted ahead of him. 6. To me, that is the biggest inconsistency. I love Michigan. I'm not going to complain about this. I'm not, I revel in this at Michigan state beat me, but I'm number 6. I will toot my own horn all day long. However, I do see it as an inconsistency. Because the other head to heads have mattered, for example, or it can be Ohio State. They are favored above them. With kind of some beat perdue Iowa, they are ahead of them, perdue, be dialog very ahead of them. I'll bite Wisconsin and Purdue having one more loss than Iowa. Those head to heads count. I would be fine with it, you know, even because Wisconsin's looked like the better team than Purdue and I was of late they've been dominant on both offense and defensive founder running game to me..

I'm gonna go out saying that the Patriots win the division. A much more easier schedule down the stretch. I believe the Patriots just pulled off but the bills also make it. The chiefs, I believe the chiefs will finish as the 7th and last seat and the playoffs. I believe they win one luge one down the stretch. I believe they could win the rest of the games, talon wise, however, I've seen that just by the way they are playing their defenses playing. That is not possible. I believe they could lose to the Raiders handedly, but somehow beat the cowboys and then lose to the Chargers or Bengals again, but then beat the Steelers. So I believe you're going to have a crazy finish. The two this season, a lot of good teams out there. But some of these teams are going to miss the playoffs, but browns are a team. I highly touted. I really do not think they will make the playoffs this year. Cincinnati. Two weeks ago, sitting at number one NBA FC. I believe they missed the playoffs now. The air for margin is so small, it's so tight. It's slimming down right now. That you need to start winning your games, especially against the better teams and I have not seen that. So if a team's, I think, again, we'll make the playoffs, Tennessee, Baltimore, chargers, bills, raiders, patriots, and chiefs. That's who I think will make of a playoffs. In the AFC. I believe Tennessee in Baltimore are the two favorites in that conference matchup. I believe they meet up at the end with this ASC not looking strong. I believe Tennessee will get dairy Henry back. They have home field advantage dairy Henry has some semblance Tennessee gets revenge on last year's playoff game. They make it to the Super Bowl. Now for the NFC side, to me, you have 5 teams that are locked in the NFC. I have the Arizona Cardinals, the Green Bay Packers, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers, medalist cowboys and the Los Angeles Rams, then you kind of have two playoff spots. And to me, a lot of these teams are on the downward trend. New Orleans, no.

"Who do I think wins that one? I really do think this will be a very close game. However, I think the Los Angeles chargers can't pull this one out. This year, it's been a coin toss on losing a close games and winning close games. You know, we've won the close game last week against the eagles, the football team, the chiefs. However, they have lost close games as well to the cowboys to the Patriots. So to me, they're kind of faring better at 5 and three whereas of Vikings have lost more close games than they've gone into overtime. Three times, they obliged two of those games. It seems to me every game they play is decided by one possession or less. They've had some unfortunate luck, but when they need a big drive by Kirk Cousins, he turns into what I've been calling him. Khan, artist Kirk. I mean, that is exactly what I think you know he is. I don't think he is a real deal. And I have a lot more faith in Justin Herbert. I really do, because of that because of Austin Eckler, this offense, I believe Minnesota can hang. But if they need a big drive from Kurt cousins, he has proven far more often than not that he is con artist Kirk and he will choke when they need him not to. I think LA wins a very, very, very close game. Philadelphia and Denver, Denver to me pulled off a huge unexpected win against the cowboys, where they were up 30 two zero. 30. Two zero. And they won 30 to 16. That was huge. They kept playoff hopes alive right there. Very, very slim that they get in because the tail end of this AFC is loaded with teams that are sitting in for 5 and four Mark. That was a big win for them. Philadelphia was also trying to stay alive, but they lost a crucial one to the Los Angeles chargers. This is another coin toss game. What quarterback will play better? Jalen hurts, a teddy Bridgewater, what defense will show up? What eagles Broncos teams will show up? I mean, very, very close, I believe right there. Seattle in Green Bay. What a match up this should be. Russell Wilson cleared to a return returning Aaron Rodgers can be cleared Saturday. I expect him to play. It doesn't look like Odell Beckham will be signing with the Seahawks on the flip side. He could be signing with the packers, but with Odell, not even in this game, not even factoring him. I think Green Day wins this game, if Aaron Rodgers is back, Russell Wilson has had a tough time with the Seahawks traveling to Lambeau. It has been very tough for Seattle to win there..

"Performance of VCs. That's how bad it was. It was terrible. It was flat out anything unlike anything I've ever seen. This buffalo team do in the past two years, 6 points to Jacksonville, just 6, that's an embarrassment. Josh Allen's got to step up. You run game has to do better, Josh Allen can not be your leading rusher. Like I've said with the New York Giants in Daniel Jones, can not be your leading rusher. Josh Allen, you can not have a quarterback being your only Russia and expect to win big games. I'll give Lamar Jackson the edge there and what other teams can do, but I also say Lamar Jackson won't win a Super Bowl with that formula in the Raven formula. I also expect the bills to bounce back this week. They have owned this rivalry against the jets as of late. I believe that domination continues as of Sunday. Detroit Pittsburgh Detroit much needed biweek where it seems like they've exhausted a lot of efforts in winning games, but also finding ways to lose games. They play Pittsburgh, and as I know, as I've said on my last podcast, yesterday, I've got no respect for Pittsburgh. Mike Tomlin in just the officiating. I wanna pick Detroit to win this game bad. However, this games and Pittsburgh, so from what I've seen from the officiating cruise on Monday night and how they call games in Pittsburgh, I'll probably roll with Pittsburgh, because a reps are gonna give the Detroit lines, no fighting chance to win this game, even if there's questionable calls a will all go against the Lions all in favor of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Steelers win this game. Right now, but after that, the schedule gets tougher. So I hope they enjoy their last easy win of the season. Because from here on out, it gets a lot tougher before the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tampa Bay in Washington. This is a rematch of last year's wildcard game where Taylor heineke went wild look like the ultimate dual threat quarterback. And the Buccaneer defense couldn't stop him to me that was your worst game of the season, especially of a playoffs. I mean, Taylor heineke could not be stocked, but Tom Brady just had a better game. I believe this defense will be ready for Taylor heineke again. It's in Washington like the playoff match was last year. I think Tom Brady, or Tampa Bay's two talented, Tom Brady is my MVP, he's playing too good, Chris Godwin is great, Mike Evans. Who knows if they'll have Rob Gronkowski back or not, we'll see if he's healthy. If AD is back from his angle, if all those guys are in, I think you can count Washington out. If not, it might give this offense or a Washington defense a little bit of a break. But at the end of the day, Tom Brady, Tampa Bay are improving to 7 and two, they are getting a huge win. I expect a huge game from Tom Brady in this game..

"Winston, who has been a decent quarterback in the NFL throne for 30 plus touchdowns, 5000 yards. He's a competent quarterback. So when you lose your starting quarterback and you have a Trevor standing in or Taysom Hill, and you don't have great weapons around you. I know you have Khmer, but you have no wide receiver one Michael Thomas out for a year. You don't have any true wide receivers, no game changers, playmakers. That makes it very, very tough, whereas with the Tennessee Titans, although you lost dairy Henry, your MVP and best player, you still have playmakers. You still have to me and above average quarterback in Ryan Tannehill. He's not great, but he's somewhere in that above average Echelon. And we got playmakers on the outside. They got AJ Brown. They got Julio Jones. So that's why I still have more faith in them, even movie lost a dare Henry, I believe Tennessee gets a win this weekend. Jacksonville and Indianapolis. This one shouldn't be close. It just should, and what I've seen from Indianapolis lately the colds have been stringed together great winds winning by decent margins at least scoring 30 plus and before stray games, Carson Wentz also having a under the radar really good season. He's made some dumb decisions, and some of them have cost him a game. He threw two interceptions against the Titans in that one game. That's two out of his three interceptions. He's only throwing three interceptions to 17 touchdowns. That's the same rate as air and Rogers. He's throwing for more yards in Aaron Rodgers. Over 2000. He's having a great season right now they have the second best running back. Jonathan Taylor, he's the workhorse back as well. Michael Pittman tremendous wide receiver. So things are really clicking for the cult. The keys to be good teams, they're playing a bad team right now in Jacksonville. I think they can beat them. Again, to me, Jacksonville is giving me that New York jet syndrome, where, you know, the judge beat the Bengals, but then of course they flamed out, and who did they play? The colts, Jacksonville, beat a good team in the Buffalo Bills a division leader held Josh Allen to find Diggs, the high flying offense to just 6 points. He didn't even get a touchdown, not one. However, I don't think they do this to Indianapolis. Now after beer big winter facing Indianapolis like the jets that after very big win against the Bengals, I believe Indianapolis is that momentum killer, Jonathan Taylor has a big game, Carson wins does they beat Jacksonville handily in this game? Now you've got a very intriguing game to me major playoff implications just due to the tiebreak alone. That is the browns and the Patriots. You have a patriot setting right now at 5 and four. You have Cleveland at 9, in 5 and four, and New England wins with tie break due to the best one percentage in conference games. So if New England were to beat Cleveland, New England essentially has a two game lead on them, they're sitting at 6 and four, Cleveland sitting at 5 and 5, but New England also on top of that one game we has V head to head tiebreak..

"Happy Wednesday, everybody. Welcome back to get your go, Josh here and a lot to get into today. Ravens dolphins, Thursday, night tomorrow. Maybe that isn't a lot to get to get into. But other than that, there is a lot week ten matchups, key predictions, also my predictions from a rest of the season, records for teams, how do I think that the second half of the season will shake up, then last night, a few NBA in college games I was right on both those. I'm also gonna give you my top 5 teams and the NHL and on top of it, react to the college football playoff rankings, what I think the committee got right what I think they got wrong and how it sets it all up for a wild finish the next three weeks. Of a college football season. But first, let's start with the ravens of a dolphins. I'm surprised that I'm surprised the ravens are only 7 and a half point favorites. I think they should be double that. I think they should be 15 and a half point the average. I give the Miami Dolphins no shot to win this game. I don't know if two is playing it doesn't matter if two is playing or if Jacoby Brissette, the dolphins just gotta win over the Texans. They're sitting at two and 7. While Baltimore is 6 and two, they have an MVP candidate and Lamar Jackson Miami has been porous on defense all year long haven't been able to stop anything that's going to continue tomorrow. I think Lamar Jackson will shred the Miami dolphin defense. Won't be close at all. He's going to have his way. And then the Baltimore defense, who's just an average this year of your past defense actually a little bit below average to what it's been in recent years, I think they'll have a big game. I think they'll wipe the floor with the Miami Dolphins..

"Arranger because the rangers. You don't understand. I don't understand the off. Well pre-ordered prearrange is actually not a word prearranged i think well you know it's pre-arranged were my prearrange. I thought i'd work. It doesn't work. Whatever i don't care nobody's listening. They're not winners. they're not always effort man. That's all i could say. There's one game on the slate today. it's bad and world. Rodriguez is pitching at somebody. Probably that lefty. Who who's really weird. Nestor cortez right like he likes stops. It's like a nineteen seventy. Louis tian from the left side stuff Rodriguez making three starts this period about that. He's only pitcher. I believe he's doing that. Yeah in the league's account. Eleven days they all know mathematically can yes they may not be great starts not having a great season. Well he's got to yankees in those. That's the catch. And i think it's toronto in toronto for the middle class. No that's a no for me. Yankees are all right handed. I am doing it. I've got a league where i've got that lock and i'm doing it because i need the volume okay. What else here of the of the few starting pitchers listed. This'll be a quicker thing here. Espn plus on friday. Night has eli morgan. cleveland against somebody on oakland I don't think i want to. I'm morgan on a fancy team. Do you absolutely not but cleveland. At least getting some of the healthier guys back They throw exactly back and he's healthy and tries to. Mackenzie is back for the monday game. I believe it is. Let me confirm that for you and we should note that there are two doubleheaders on friday. Minnesota detroit miami philadelphia so they start earlier in the day. So if you're lock is friday it's not it's seven oh five to ten. Pm remember it's gonna lock your non yankees and red sox on today days right friday but like i believe where locks at the first game so multiple league back most of my leagues locked that way So it was pretty rough on. Tv's at least half of the the starting assignments this weekend are still tv at the time of taping. You guys can tweet us all you want like if boston. New york is rained out tonight. I don't think it's going to be like data lock for the week and a lot most leagues. That's just the way it is like. They can't just stop that your players are locked in when that happened so you can ask me interesting. But we can't do anything about that comes down to the probability of relays saturday. Nothing on our air but welcome beulah colorado. I know i've asked you this a bunch but you don't take out top twenty starting pitchers just because a pitching in denver. Especially against that offense correct you estimate down the innings. They usually just don't get as many innings for the batters faced of the forecast grades. Give him at least of the assigned guys so far the number two best pitcher throwing this weekend even course also saturday i'd brazil. La against arizona. It's not a good team. Twenty fifth among qualifiers in chase rate which is pretty good ahead of sherzer. Giolito kind of interesting there you in illinois now chase right. I'm not sure that's a positive. Because that means he might be fooling guys but if they get a little wiser like they have over the final couple of weeks. The all star break. I have not been impressed by the way i like. What he's done with the slider this season arizona's a good match up. But i'm on offense. Their face philadelphia and his manager. Who can't get anything right. Sat down hoskins and mccutchen. Put in brad miller who with three home runs in that game because a as numbers against lefties just horrid yeah it worse than like an average right handed starting pitcher. Yep basically is like shutdown right hander. But he's giving up fifteen homers the left with a high slugging and then brad miller took him deep. He's got one great against right. He's a nine for the lefties. It's i mean that is among the whitest out there. Really parole detroit and alex cobb of the angels both pitch saturday and enticing matchups home against minnesota peralta which i never would say and then seattle for alex cop. Are you interested in either of these. Gentlemen cobb yeah well. I'm sort of cornered into using them. Home game seattle. That's a good matchup shirt. Gimme the who's the other guy. Well you mentioned peralta really peralta. Wily peralta so yeah. That's i've got an a-league where i just don't have enough bodies to fill the lineup. So i put in a claim just because it's volume. I beyond that on. No no way saying i baseball and espn's at yankee stadium against our. Nick is on sunday night. Baseball the former philly fina against somebody on the yankees ripa that a lot because of the phillies angle here. Because he couldn't do nothing for my team but like colour and now he's fine but i still think he's fine. I gotta tell you like i. Where do you rank the about him on your top fifty starting pitchers. I don't think you'd do your your little too much of a hater on panetta. But you're also onto the fact that it's a hint mirage ish and this is not a good match for him. No to yankee matchups if you have the extended period to We also camera valdez on sunday. I mean pretty much. Every astros starting pitcher at this point is fine is good good enough to go. We'll see what they do. You know mixing and matching innings in the second half for luiz garcia and all that but Fulton average mu. Patrick sandoval. He's been on. Espn plus against seattle left. He's been getting strikeouts. Yeah he's pitched all right in the grade. Say that he's worthwhile if you're in on cobb. There's no reason you shouldn't be on santa. all is well home game seattle. That's favorable time to bring in kyle. He's always favorable. For trivia and hashbrowns. People were tweeting are saying that. Where was the trivia in our last show. And i just don't have a good answer to that botched giving a trivia question for aj. I don't know that gave the answer. And i'll be honest. I have to go back and find out what the question was. I've got one area Things going on last show. There wasn't one last show so we got to forty two today. I got one got one today. I want you to the name. The two pitchers allowed least twenty homers. But have any are under four. That is my trivia question. We'll get to in a minute when we come back to answer that after hashbrowns mike is getting frustrated with joe musco. He wants to know if you'd looked to move on from him with the sub three e. r. a. And so what sort of outfielder should he be looking for us. Grove has a big strikeout rate and his numbers are fine. I mean it's it's a very low hit rate which i don't know if he can sustain in the second half the season but the strikeout-to-walk great pitching well me left these writings home away. Everything looks good here. It's just recently had a couple of blowups one at cincinnati But i mean isn't joe must grow a top ferdie starting pitcher. I think so as a matter of fact that can make a case. He's top twenty starting pitcher and have ranked them as that barely of granted. My concern is he's been a little bit too breaking ball reliant this year and i wonder whether that's caught up with him over the past couple of weeks and i just hope that he adjusts that going forward that he hasn't lean. Remember the no hitter in the no hitter. He went almost entirely to the breaking pitches. I mean rates down from last season. Small sample is babette is ridiculously low. There's some hit. You know babba magic going on here but i still look at. Most grove is a guy should have like a one twenty. Whip the rest of the season with a three fifty year. Ray so he's not going to put the same numbers he has now yet when he gets enough strikeouts were i think he's a top thirty starting pitcher..

"Net and gavin williams to cleveland. I saw him phase vanderbilt last month and he looked great. Cleveland does a great job with their starting young starting pitching so to me that draft for fantasy purposes about the right handed power starting pitchers but not just the van boys the other guys as well. What are your thoughts now. I would agree with that. Because i think they can move quickly and i think pitching is inclined to move a lot more quickly. These days so i actually would make the case that rockers upside more than i do lighters. I think lighter is the more locked in safe kinda guy. They're both going to be excellent prospects in time. I let the thought about maybe pushing him to the majors down the stretch because the meta are struggling. The four five spots will see. How noah syndergaard's recovery goes. I think that might play a little bit into it. Rocker was one of the gifts. The other one was marcella matter going to the red hats. A number four overall. I mean that is a gift. Now he is gonna take a long while. It's why you don't even see a whisper of him in either the two piece. I did the dynasty three hundred or the old twenty twenty-five team. Because i don't see him getting to that level for fantasy but if you're in one of those drafts there's deep deep deep dynasty leagues that have the first year player. I think meyer belongs meyer. Mayor think it's mayor belongs in that early category. And you're right. I do think that those big right handed power arms are going to be the the guys you want in the short-term yeah i think you're looking at short versus long term fantasy purposes if you're an identity format though you want the right handed power pitcher and you hope they become aces. That's how i look at the davis thing. The only thing with davis is just the weakness of catcher. It is a tough read from as to where he belongs. I did think about putting him in the ranks just because he was a college catcher and he has great discipline. He had more walks than strikeouts in his final college. Here i don't know i'm i'm torn there. He again didn't make my cut. I think rush into a baltimore is special and a generational catching town. Like buster posey. I don't think there's any other catcher like that right now in seattle just called up this kid cow raleigh. Maybe he's great. We thought francisco me. He was going to be great a couple of years ago. I just be careful with catchers and fantasy francisco alvarez going back to the future scheme the at the home run the messianic nineteen nineteen-year-old catcher. Now you wanna talk about a guy who's hit tool is great and has exceptional discipline. There's to guy there is your guy. Let's move on from the kids here and get into the news of the past weekend ronald kunia that stinks it absolutely stinks and i'm a phillies fan so i don't want to do well but it stinks because this is one of the best players in baseball so exciting and tours. Acl and so. I asked you i've ski. You can drop them in redraft formats for twenty twenty one but if you were going to rank a kunia one two or three for twenty twenty two. Does this change your mind. The it's an acl in july..

"And he is going to pitch the third game for the angels coming out of the all star break and i just i really hope that that he stays perfectly fine on the field for every remaining angels game. I think angels game. I think he will but it worried me ever so slightly soda. Love your take on that one. The fact that he went into those three swings and the tiebreaker match and he he seemed to know exactly what his approach would be was. What i love about him as a hitter. He is a smart guy and the fact that you said if he did what unravel is his wing hit for more power. Bring it on. That is what made vladimir guerrero awesome. This year is that he got more location of the bullets. Four percent of a decrease in ground ball rate for vladimir guerrero. If so does that in the second half he will be an mvp caliber player and a challenger series one for number one of the fantasy Player for for the second half. Don't you think soda is a very legitimate candidate to be the best player in fantasy from today. I think he might win the batting title and hit for power. I think you'd do whatever he wants. Yeah and showed in that in that upper echelon and alonzo you know what it is. I don't think it's just that he built. I think joey gallo is also built to to win the home run derby i think lonzo has the perfect combination of build and approach. I think approach is also very important. I agree and and the other thing i liked about the derby's nobody had a bad derby like sally perez freeman seaney not olsen slow start and then he got moving. I mean like every derby you see a guy with like three home runs the whole round. You didn't see that this week. Everybody did well terrific kudos by the way the fact that it's timed they don't get the breeder in the past. It used to be outs get out. They can take readers but this is kudos to these guys for holding that well performing on a on a time clock. I mean i i get tired after like three rings and my softball games and these guys swinging like fifty times in three minutes. There was like fantastic. Lots of other stuff here to get to look big show. So the kids futures dame was on sunday. I saw some of that. I wonder if you saw any and what your thoughts were. Brennan davis the cubs outfitter. We don't talk about very much as a top prospect. Because he's not but that's a guy he has like a train. Mancini vibe to me like a twenty five homer ninety. rbi guy outfielder. i could see that happening What i really notice with shane. Baz tampa bay is ready right now. Okay he he's going to be in the majors really soon. The only issue and fantasies. I don't know what his role is going to be. Really be a a middle middle innings guy. I doubt he's closing. I'm not sure is starting and throwing seventy five pitches and re detmer the angels. I'm a little bit surprise. He's not in the major now like they need starting pitcher right now. Nemours comes in lefty. Who i don't recall throwing ninety five miles per hour when he was drafted last year. Now he is. He's trying his strike. Rate is unbelievable. Aa with the angels promote them. Straight from a to the majors really soon. That bazant detmer's with the guys. I was like wow look at these guys over power hitters and you know i enjoyed seeing austin martin and bobby witt bobby what i think a little bit low and your dynasty rankings. By the way. I mean they're so. Tristan has his midseason dynasty dynasty rankings. The also has its twenty twenty-five team on the same week. What a banner. Week patricians articles this week and we'll touch on that a little bit. But i i mean. Bollywood looks like a monster to me. Like i think if you're going to rank i don't wanna say he should rank rwanda franker wander. Franco is but from annecy. I think you could make the case. Because he's gonna steal basis and he's going to hit for power and that's what i was going to do so i i almost think now bobby witt deserve the same treatment as wander franck does for fantasy purposes anyway Any other thoughts from you on the in the futures game. I like your take on those two pitchers those are teams that are going to need pitching depth and in the case of the raise they could find an opportunity for us to come contributing in the The louis patino and the shane mcclanahan mold. And maybe that doesn't impact us law for fantasy. But i do think it's gonna be relevant because if they are really pressed into two pitches well the major league level. Maybe he does lockdown. A couple of starts gives you five six to contribute. They're just because he was on the on the team here and he was tearing up in aaa. We talked about a million times. And he is. There's whispers in seattle coming out that he's getting recalled agata. Just mentioned the jared celtic thing. Jarred celtics agai. You got on a roster everywhere at this point. And i'm really surprised. Espn leagues. He's available and sixty percent less for speakers. The impatient vantage managers are on our assuming. He's thinks now because he hit like. Oh ninety six or something opportunity. I i don't see why are our projection on jared. County should have changed at all since march. We think he's going to be great. He struggled for month. He's gonna come back soon. You may be like this weekend. He's going to be a great fantasy asset. I really believe like you've got. Kyle tucker ranked really well in your dentistry. Ranks i count. It deserves almost the same placement tucker. Obviously he's been in the majors proven himself a little bit. He's potential five category guy. Although i doubt it hits for average count. I think is a lot like that i really do. I like your cops here that you're putting those two together. I think that that does comprise tier. I do think the case for wit and franck. Oh i think that's a franco. Frank what am i saying bronco and going back to michael francke who should not be compared wandered michael But yeah wit and franco. They probably also belong. In similar to weight. I really did struggle within the dynasty rankings. And then there was the mlb draft and the surprise. i pick the pittsburgh was the catcher. Henry davis who might be great. He's a really good hitter. But catchers be careful in a fantasy sensor. it's different than in real life. I mean in a fantasy. I still rarely keep catchers or use them for dynasty purposes. Here because you know they get hurt. They get injured sometime sometimes. They don't hit until late in their careers is with the audi molina and sally perez some degree. We're seeing real mouton now. Just an average offensive player this season and possibly because he was hurt. He had a broken thumb back in march. Davis is the first pick you would not be my first pick in a dynasty format here. I think it's the starting pitchers. I can't believe kumar. Rocker filled the number ten to the new york. Mets the venue boys right handers. I mean kumar. Rocker is going to be great. And i think he's the shah a chance. He's up this september for the mets pitching as a starting pitcher. Because they don't have five starting pitchers. I don't know who's going to catch them. In the atlanta just lost their best player. Philadelphia's so average is not even average so the mets could win eighty five games still cruise to the playoffs. And then have to play the dodgers of the giants. But i just kumar. Rocker is going to be great. I think jack lighter may have more upside. I compared to the sunny gray a shorter van de right hander. With strikeout potential so lighter went number two overall to texas. Great home ballpark. Come roger greater say now right because you don't think of texas in the past but you're correct today by the way i think lighter and rocker going to be great but there were other right handed power arms. The went in round one. Who i think if he just as good we'll bedar. I watched him in the college world series. He's he goes the safer. Cisco you can't get a better ballpark. The.

Although trevor rosenthal who a lot of people thought was going to be a top ten closer our hands arrays as well is officially done for the season. Hip surgery is pending yankees. Go to chad green for the save on wednesday. I think that was predictable. Maybe they give chapman the weekend off. Maybe chapman doesn't go to the all star game There's lots of guys who could replace worldwide woody. He's pitching so badly right now. Something's obviously either physically or mentally or mechanically wrong. I'm not trying to be facetious. Something's wrong something's definitely wrong. I mean he. He pitches the tuesday game. Yeah it was. It was an irrelevant relevant split in the in the score at the time and he walked two batters. I believe in that game still control issues. Something's clearly amiss. So that's why. I said pickup chad green. Maybe i'll get some saves. maybe as an injury list pending here Any other situations that changed. Marlins went to bender on On wednesday night and he blew it But he's still really good. And i think for the rest of the season i wanna write a piece next week about The second half closers preview. And i think i might say the is more valuable more value than you may garcia. I actually think benders going to be there closer for miami. The final two plus months. The fact that it's now two opportunities on garcia's night off and garcia's pitch very ineffectively over seventy ira. Since may i. i'm with. You can make that case just when you thought.

Yep and zimmer started to give up some runs of lay it just man so frustrating trying to figure it out and fancy who's going to get the saves and then something like that happens and you don't know you had one more to mention with cincinnati and your guy heath henry who blew it one night. He got the opportunity the next night. The managers confidence play and he pitched well in it. I think he is going to keep getting saves or save. Chances is as inevitable. You're going to give up home runs. I mean he's worse than hector narrows who gives up home runs and every- is going to give up home runs last year. I mean look. He's going to give up on so let's leave it at that. It's a temporary thing. But but they're they're giving them opportunities. I don't think it is i. I honestly don't think it is. I think you know it. We're still weeks away. Maybe four weeks from seeing lucas. Sims and tj antone. So i don't think it's i think i think embry. And and embry and the lefty mir garrett are gonna really well lately he's pitch virus they're gonna share it i think i. I don't think there's anything else we need to discuss. Because nothing else is really going on. We dealt with of suarez. Josh hader bluish save no big deal and detroit. You don't care about arizona got to saves this month that clearly walking sar story is clearly there. Close yeah i know. I can't believe it. They had to saves before we get to the schedule. And the pictures to watch for the next because this weekend. A funding here from From kyle a little category regress or reinvest is the first category. Have these players. Change your mind enough. In the first african to be buying their current trajectory or is the regression monster. Coming together in three three players for you. Taiwan walker i think. Ob the ground replace because the mess will have an also grandma's go kyle gibson who i think was bad yesterday and nicosia knows who's still plan really great killing righties pitching as well. Regress or reinvest on these regional collie is still two of these guys from the the hash brown question the other day and i think we were pretty firm on trying to cash in the gibson ship. I i'm about wowed. By taiwan walker. But i do lean towards believing and i'm in the castanos there's no am cashing in that chip by f- you know i'm a castanos fan. You know he's not gonna win an nfl mvp. But his team made a run. He could make a run like his numbers there. Yes if the reds were a game behind the brewers you could see a scenario where nicolaas is a potential envy pecan nationally. Because i mean burnett leads the player raider right now overall. And the padres are obviously and contention. So i think the teaser degrom would be probably grow would be the mvp choices at this point right there as well. I mean if it's fifty home runs to he he might win it. Atlanta makes her comeback. Mets are still allowing teams to be in the race but the national league really is going to be interesting to both leagues. because otani versus vlad. That's going to be lots of fun as well. The whoever has more home runs maybe but otani if it keeps pitching well. I i don't know how how you can't give it to him anyway. I agree with you on that. The next category here is rebound or reject buying low and hoping for a rebound or selling it hopes as name holds more weight than a rough. First-half reese stretch the names are charlie blackmon. Anthony rizzo and the yankee closer who we already discussed he. Probably will rebound. He just needs a week off but blackman areso. I'm not sure i'm reinvesting here. I don't think i'm expecting a rebound in the second half for rather one. I mean rizzo against ryan pitching's bedding to thirteen my goodness. Yeah yeah he starting to fall into kind of a split situation which is bothersome at that age. It shows the the downward agent curve. I want to believe in both of these guys. I think that the name brands are going to keep the price too high for my taste. I'd probably lean towards the rockies.
"second half" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Baseball
"I'm going to keep him around by do think he can contribute down the stretch free. I don't you think he got at least the capability of top twenty out all seems very positive on illinois him in as now. I think that people that dumped him in april. We're going to regret it and let me quickly ask because it affects one of my teams the atlanta leftfielder who is on the deal with the finger and ended something he shouldn't have. Would you cash him in right now. I have him in leno. Labor at like twenty five bucks. But i'm gonna keep him. I think and and maybe he'll produce september but again he he could be suspended so i have to ask you whether you you really have that option. He has to be sixty day detailed. Or l i think he is. I don't think he's sixty day all. I think he's restricted list than if he is. You can't do it or would you drop them in an espn standard. Then right. this goes to so for wars you can. I believe if the players on the injured list or on the sidelines for an extended period. Cut the player and get fab. I would yes. That's another case of gray area. I lean towards it being lengthier because we just don't know these things and they have not historically been getting settled very quickly. There's no reason that that. mlb should race through it. i would cashman. Yeah all right moving on now. Let's talk about hitters of the per- hitters of the first half was on monday. Show otani in vlad pitcher the first half you know jacob degrom is number one guy for points leagues and on the player reiter. Kevin gaza was like fifteen th round pick. Freddie peralta up there on chris bassett's having a great season. I just have a tough time going against the ground for this. Even though he was a first round pick an arguably the first pitcher taken in a moment every draft. You agree with that. He's putting up historic numbers. I wouldn't fight you on that. I will pick kevin guzman just based on you know. And you've said this many times it's the value relative to cost on draft day. It was a large divide between these two players. That's the only reason. I personally pick osmond. But i think it's clearly one of those too by the way could us zack. Wheeler for a very big year. Zack wheeler has had an exceptional year. That i don't think he's getting enough kudos for well last night might have cost them a start in the all star game so degrom is not going to go to denver for the all star game. He wants to and he he should he should be focusing on the mets. Frankly maybe taiwan walker will be the replacement and then wheeler started last night at wrigley field and his defense again. Let them down And his manager probably so but we'll have a great first half of the season. And i like to see him in the all star game. When i was growing up. I used to love the also game because i would see my player and we could watch every gate okay. The only chance we have was like monday night baseball. Abc tbs of the atlanta team. And then i would watch the phillys. Wgn you could get the cubs cubs but you know like in the like it was cool. I would watch schmid e every day. Carlton but in the all star game i could see. Oh that's a guy. I've never seen before you know. There's alvin davis just an example. Like or like bob horner. You know like he didn't get to see everybody and you never got to see like you were nail guys yankee i was. I didn't get to see american league players like marching back. Then i love the all star game just to watch tim raines play. Yeah because you didn't get to see the montreal players new york yankees fan. That just wasn't going to happen the only time if you watch some of those mets games when they came to town i didn't even know where seattle was growing up and then like they have a full team. Toronto has a baseball team. And i'm like oh. I wanna see their players and i don't remember how was seeing bruce bach the all star game but maybe he was there to help build your ship now. Seattle being your new team right well. That and and baseball cards baseball cards was the other way it was like seeing like mariner. But then you know. Like oh here comes bruce bach these and all star at seventy nine or whatever and then that was the game day. Parker throw are wasting time ingram. I have to give you the random question though older stick of tops baseball game. You've eaten. i've never had one. You've never eaten any of the government of the packs really. I've never actually chewed a piece of gum in my life. Wow i see. I haven't in a long time. I gave up gum well over probably two decades ago. We're very never had never had a lot of the pack. Who had come in any form. I've never had coffee in any form. I've never had coffee. So that doesn't strike me as the weirdest things. But the golly you i've enjoyed i've had gum. I don't do it regularly. I don't have yeah. I remember at coffee. Baseball cards ruined by piece of gum. That twice took it out. I hate that. I wish they would put it back in. That was part of the fun of the packs. Wait all this. I met matt old a good friend of mine. We were opening these up about a year ago. Nine thousand nine hundred eight tops and he ate the gum and i warned him not to an advanced older than i am. Yeah that's a problem. That's that seems oh advised thirty two. It was no. It's thirty one year old gum. He ate it. He said it was dreadful. And it was dreadful eighty-eight shocking all right. That's a look down history lane here for us. And more eric's weirdness Homerun derby i just.
