"That's what it's called. Yeah, all those things. NBC sports soccer network dot org. Yeah. And he's a good guy. And I like him, but he's like, well, you know, he's going to make more money. Yes, he definitely will. Like, his life-changing money compared to what he's on in MLS, but he's not going to play and Nicholas was one of these advanced the idea. Well, he's facing top quality players and taking shots on him in training. No, goalkeepers have to play. It's not the same training will never be the same as games. It's a unique position. It's not that unique of a position. And look, there are examples which people will be furiously tweeting towards this. This podcast right now of where goalkeepers weren't status for their clubs, but were starters internationally and they were Sergio Romero's the big one took Argentina to a World Cup final. Right. It didn't last that long. You want your goalkeepers? Do you want your players to be starting? And the goalkeepers know different and that's a worry for me. Is it a great move to go to arsenal? Yes. I get it for him. I get it for him, but it's not good for the U.S. as far as I'm concerned. I mean, look, would I rather him be playing regularly? Of course. But I do, I can see a little bit of how a goalkeeper can maybe remain sharper as a number two in a way that an outfield player I'd be more concerned with. No. Then he got it too. The modern goalkeeper isn't in this isolated position like it used to be. Modern goalkeepers really involved in things. He's not running up and down the field. Look at how it yeah, but look at, look at how involved the modern goalkeeper is that all the top goalkeepers we think of are playing with their feet. They're getting touches on the ball. They're under pressure. You don't get that same kind of intensity in training. You just don't. That's why it's training. That's why it's practiced. And we already know Turner is a goalkeeper who is not exactly the best with his feet. If he has won Achilles heel, his heel is his foot, bear with me. And he needs to play. It's not that we've seen a ton of Stefan, but you know he's the U.S.'s number one. He's played as their number one through the bulk of World Cup qualifying. He's been Manchester City's number two for a while now. That's been his role. When I watch him play, to me, like, from the time he was with Columbus to the time he was to him being with Manchester City, I don't feel like I'm looking at a player that's gotten worse. I feel like he's I'm still comfortable with him as the goalkeeper and he's been in that number two job for quite some time now. If that, if the sudden drop off is going to come because he's not getting regular minutes as the first team keeper, it hasn't come yet. So I don't know. We'll see. Who knows? Maybe every guy is different, but to me it's not, again, it's not a end of the world scenario. But we'll see if it happens. Hasn't happened yet. Any other takeaways, JJ, from this team? I think obviously the boost your absence is unfortunate. We've been talking about that. I would just say with Tim ream. He's been slowly phased out by Greg. You feel like early Greg had leaned on his experience. And he ended up even in left back, left fullback a couple of times. But that era seems to be drawing to a clause. And that's more veteran leadership that's being moved out of the squad, despite Fulham going really well and him starting every single game. His last game was El Salvador in September. That's the last time he started, and he was in the squad the last time that September again in the four one away win in Honduras. So he is being kind of fizzed out. There's one other thing that stands out to me before we move on. 13 MLS players who have not been playing football for some months now. Greg says that January camp will have bridged that fitness gap and sharpness gap for them. I'm not so sure. I think it's a look at someone like Brendan Harrison. They've been on break he hasn't played in 6 weeks, Virginia odes. He hasn't played since December 4th, I think, through COVID and injury. Yeah. But they would have but they would have had organized trainings with their clubs in that. I mean, MLS is only in pre season and apart from this January camp, how much have they how much have they done? That's in a group setting in a team setting. It's a concern. I don't know whether it will end up mattering, I don't know. The things for me seeing Jordan Morris back in the squad just gave me good feelings, JJ. He is one of Andrew's people. He's one of my people. I've got the jingle yet Andrew. I've even thought about it. Can you work on it, please? Nope. No, I'll get to it. I'll get to it. But yeah, I was very happy to see him back in. JJ Weston McKinney, Greg bear halter said that he's what was the quote. He's probably in the form of his life. I'm excited. I mean, if that is, in fact, the case, which it seems to be right now with the way he's been playing at Juventus, I'm excited to see how that manifests itself with the national team. And then the only other thing that was interesting to me talk about rim not being there, Anthony Robinson is the only true left back that was included on this squad. I'm going to play three games in a week. He ain't playing three games in a week. So it's going to be some experimentation time. And I guess desk will be the guy who will probably audition for that left back role. His versatility his in terms of ending up in any position where he's needed is going to be tested. I would say. Yeah. So I'll be interested to see that. And I'll be interested to see who becomes, you know, who is, you know, I assume when all things are equal, if everyone's healthy, Robinson, on the left, desk on the right, when desk moves over to the left to give Robinson some kind of breather. Who is the preferred right back to fill in for desk? Because I know Regan is now starting again regularly at Bo vista. We don't know Deandre edlin. It sounds like it's headed back to MLS. That's not definitive yet. I thought I even saw that whole city. We're interested in the outland, but it looks like he could be going to Miami. So we'll have to wait and see. He's on the squad. I'll just be, I'll be interested to see who what the pecking order is of right backs for this. When you think yedlin has had enough of weather in the northeast of England, you know, Sunderland, Newcastle hall, like he wants to go somewhere else. You know, coming straight from the heat of turkey. No. Are Miami and.

"A long way to go, Um Our focus is just continue and to play well play together. And do what we've been doing. You know, it's been a real team effort, which is nice. You know, It's not 11 guy, by any means. It's everybody just like our bullpen, I think are both ends a great example for How we're winning games right now. They're all helping each other out, picking each other up. I just couldn't be happier for that group. The bullpen has pitched really significantly better in the last nine games. Hopefully, that continues. So today it's Miley against Hendricks. By the way today starting pitchers have brought to you by Western and Southern financial group. Helping to make Cincinnati the best place to live work and enjoy life and by Richter and Phillips voted best jeweler and best place to buy your engagement ring. Pitching is in the spotlight quite a bit these days because umpires are consistently checking pictures now to see if there are any foreign substances, sticky stuff that allows the picture to grip the ball better. It's always been illegal. They're just cracking down on it right now. Well at the epicenter of all of it as a writer. You know Sarah's the athletic dot com He was on my show about a week ago, and we were talking about how his article about sticky stuff and Major League baseball cracking down on it all the way back before the season began. Really, and truly started the ball rolling to what we have right now. One pitcher has already been caught and tossed for 10 games will see exactly if anyone else gets caught or of pictures are getting hip. Not having sticky stuff in and around their person during a game. Here's part of what Sarah's had to say There was a really interesting story that happened when Trevor Bauer was a member of the red, actually, Uh, maybe it was going to be going to India 2018 Indian. He basically was saying, Hey, everyone doing the staff and he he threw shade that, Garrett Colon said. Coal and the Astros are all doing the sticky stuff and it helps. And it has a performance benefit. And at the time, I think everyone thought it just for grip. No big deal. Everyone does it and In order to prove his point. Bauer actually used sticky substance for one inning in one game. And if you look at it, it's been rates, uh, has been raped with through the roof. 304 100. It was like the best spin of his career. Um, for for one inning, And so it's just really obvious. Something that changed that one inning. The probability of that. Happening by chance of zero. So you know he and Putin in 2018. I wrote piece but the pine tar increase in rates. And I kind of that became red for me to unravel. Um and boy has it unraveled. It has and There's just there's a couple of things here that that aggravate me. Rob Manfred said. Everything was going well. The first two days of this thing, Uh, he threatened in spring that if this didn't clean up its act or pictures didn't clean up their act that he was going to enforce it. Well, not he but the owners. He's just working for the owners, Uh, they were going to enforce at midseason. Now What I'm confused about here is if you knew it was a problem. And you tried to leave it to self policing that never works. It never works in sports. Why did he just do this in March and be done with it? Yeah, There's something if there's anything that prospect about the way baseball handles, it is, uh, it is dependent because they told managers in 2020, but that's I think that's like telling your boss's boss's boss. It's not, You know, it's not going to be effective and it wasn't And then they they had a memo before this season being like we're watching you, you know, and but since it hadn't been enforced for so many years, you know these memos. I think players were right to be like whatever you know, And then all of a sudden he leaks that umpires are going to do the two checks per game and it's going to happen on June 21. And I think that's fairly unprecedented. I mean, if you think about rule changes in the rule enforcement in the history of baseball, it usually happens in the off season. They say Well this year we're going to do the high strike or this year. We're not going to let this happen. You know what I mean? And how it happens in the off season. It's like a winter meetings announcement, but this was weird. And I have to think that if there is any reason for it being mid season like this, maybe it has a little bit something to do with the fact that they did in the ball and offensive down and we had all those no hitters. This is the way to get offense back in the game, and they felt some urgency to do with mid season. So now umpire Joe West and the rest of his friends all got chemistry sets for Memorial Day, and they're out there. I thought What happened with the Washington Nationals was just ridiculous. Scherzer's checked three times. Girardi gets thrown out of the game, largely because he he knew exactly what he was doing. He was trying to get under ensures her skin. Sergio Romero shows the Oromo drops his drawers. I mean, really, now there've been others that have complied. Joe Smith young man who happens to be from right here in in the Tri state. He voluntarily gave up articles of apparel that he was wearing, including what I mean at a certain at a certain point, it's going to reach the level of absurdity. You can see it coming and I don't think any picture is going to back down from it..

"Do with the fact that they didn't the ball and offensive down and we had all those no hitters. This is the way to get offense back in the game, and they Some urgency to do admit these So now umpire Joe West and the rest of his friends all got chemistry sets for Memorial Day, and they're out there. I thought what happened with the Washington Nationals was just ridiculous. Sure. Users check three times. Girardi gets thrown out of the game, largely because he he knew exactly what he was doing. He was trying to get under insures her skin. Sergio Romero, socio Romo drops his drawers. I mean, really, now there's been others that have complied. Joe Smith young man who happens to be from right here and in the Tri state. He voluntarily gave up articles of apparel that he was wearing, including his place. What I mean at a certain at a certain point, it's going to reach the level of absurdity. You can see it coming and I don't think any picture is going to back down from it. How do you here's the Here's the thing. Okay, You can check a pitcher's glove. You can check the bill of his cap. But if something gets on the ball, how do you know it wasn't the first basement after he got the ball back from a strikeout or how does it How do you know it's not the catcher who's got something on the inside of his Shin Guard? People were going to figure out to cheat, right? I think so. And one of the things that we talk about this is so I think that they could do a better job of doing that sort of after the fact like gather the balls and actually, because there's video on them all the time. You could actually Improved by video that this wall was not passed by anybody else. And you know, this is the ball. We marked the ball. It would be a big deal. However, there is no trust between baseball's managed, like sort of MLB and the player. There's no trust, right, but they wouldn't trust they they'd be like, What do you mean? You're just telling me that this ball is bad, and I'm suspended 10 days like They wouldn't trust them. They would think that they would favor stars or whatever. So, um, so that's out the window. The one thing I would say is that they got stuck because they did this in season. They got stuck with the way it's playing out because you can't change the rule book in season right, so they're not actually changing the rule of there's a rule that they're they're just enforcing it now. Right, And the problem is the way it used to be enforced was the manager has the power to ask the umpire to check Now? If you're doing two checks already? I think it's a little bit much to give the manager of the power. Add another check. Right like these guys are getting checked. The problem is That would be changing the rule book. So that's the rule that's always been on the on the on the on the docket. It's like the manager is allowed to do them, so they're stuck. They can't change the rule book in the middle of season and so they're going to be stuck with managers doing something. Think it goes back to what you said earlier. I think they realize that as a game baseball is becoming mundane. I won't use boring, mundane. The three drew outcomes are always in play. It doesn't seem to be a place anymore in this game for singles hitter or God that can advance the runner. It all seems to me like this is going back to trying to get the game back to an offensive game. They messed with the baseball. Now they're messing with the psyche of pictures. Um, I don't I don't. I don't think there's any question that there's another step to all of this. And I don't know what it's going to be. Maybe the D H combat twice in a given any well, maybe actually heard order. Heard an idea of to DHS. Yeah. Or maybe Or maybe they're going to move the rubber back like they did in the Atlantic leg or they're going to move the fences. Introduce something. I think when you start messing with the primal forces of anything you're asking for trouble. The problem is is that baseball isn't managed anymore, nor our players trained anymore to play. The game Pictures are only supposed to go five innings. A guy that hits 2 27, but has 31 dingers Man. That guy is making tens of millions of dollars. It's the game that that has Really more more so than just whether or not Trevor Bauer is using sunblock on the bill of his cap. Yeah, but the problem is that the best thing about her can do at the plate is a home run and the best thing the picture can do at the mount of strikeouts, so the game is going to optimized for that. Um and it does not. It's not true. Unilaterally, of course, moving the runner along making contact. Good. Um, but You know, the one thing I would say is that you know, strikeout rate is valued like the The Astros right now has the best offense in baseball, and they also have the lowest strike operating baseball. So there's there's the strike, like people can make contact are valued by the game. Um, but they are. They are that there is a lack of a two strike approach. I agree, because you know they'd rather hit the home run or myth. Um then weekly ground into like a double play or something. So there are some strategical things going on. But I think the biggest thing is below and spin or at an all time high, and it's harder than ever. To make contact with the baseball pitches are nasty. They're designed to be nasty there, so I didn't blab now, Um and I think pictures are at all time. Great level when it comes to striking batted out. Yes, This will be an effort to have fewer strikeouts and it will. It will lead to fewer strikeout and they may also move them around back, and they may also have robot up and Hopefully, between all that, I think would be good for the game. Fewer strikeouts with you could better for the game. I think that's true. Why do they just have inflatable dolls? Managing? I mean, which I made pay to see, you know. I mean, I'm a paid. What do you think about red legs here? I mean, they're not fish. They're not foul. They don't have much stock is back. Votto seems to show new life. Castellanos and Winker going to be all stars. They're basically driving the bus here. They're not out of it. They're not in it. They're basically a 500 team. Would you anticipate them being a 500 team at the end of the year? Yeah, I think they'll be in it for wild card spot, actually. And here's a couple of reasons why I bottle went to drive line in the off season and just speed bat training and you can see you can see you've got some of the power back. Um, he lost a little bit of the play coverage strike a little bit more, but I think this is a good version for him, Uh, in the near the end of his career, Um and yeah, Winker took that big step forward. The offences there. Moose will be back eventually. So I think the offense is looking pretty good. And then here's another thing. Kyle body from Dr Line is in charge of the minor league there. And at one point this season, the red minor leaguers have the best tiara in my league baseball. The group. Um and you're starting to see. I think some of the fruits of the flight the player development program when you see a guy like that duty air come up. And he's able to pitch six innings right off the shoot. You know why That is is because Kyle worked really hard to have everybody have the innings they need in them. By the time they get to the major leagues. Why have a guy throws 60 innings in the minor leagues meeting this year in the major league? It's the pitches. You need him up to 8100 pitches the pitch as a starter in major week, So I think you're starting to see with Santy on and Gutierrez the fruits of the labor and there's there's more where that came from, so they'll have the pitching depth to survive the injuries that are coming in the second half here..
