"Your neighbor's neighbor and his neighbor's neighbor. It's roundup. Weed and grass killer with short shot want. When used as directed always read and follow pesticide label directions. We'll see how that one shakes out. AO central up for grabs twins leading the way right now. Byron buxton continues to have a good year. The twins, I mean, this team quietly has taken that division as the White Sox are trying to get their health in order. And they haven't quite been right yet. It seems like it's up for grabs. Cleveland hasn't been bad to you. No, Cleveland can hit. I can't believe it. They're the only team in the American League getting over two 50. And you know, there's 7th in OPS and all baseball at a 30. I mean, we all thought it was just those Ramirez, but Owen Miller's doing a nice job. Andre's him and his, I mean, he was one of two short stops they got four Lindor he's I played Lindor. They can hit they can hit. They can hit up and go at lineup. It's really the pitching that hasn't been what we thought. Bieber has not been what he had been, obviously, was a so young one, but you expect him to at least be very good starter. Yeah, we thought it would be more pitching for the Indians. The white socks to me though, they're a surprise. I mean, obviously they've had a lot of guys get hurt. That's a killer when you lose Lin. They lost giolito a couple times already. You know, I've had mankind out. You've had Robert out. Jimenez is out. It's been rough, but they have not performed either. I mean, Hendricks is, I mean, going in, you look at Hendrix and hater is the two best reliever in baseball. I mean, haters been lights out. Hendrix has really gotten blown up a few times. I don't expect that to continue, but you've had that go on and also in terms of their hitting and basically getting a good year out of Anderson moncada and Vaughn. Everybody else is not even a brave and grand not hitting. And you know, I'm worried about them. I really am. We'll see on the twins that you write about buxton. I mean, what a terrific talent when he's on the field such a difference. Yeah. There's no question when he is healthy. Man, there may not be a more explosive baseball player going right now. And Major League Baseball. I got a circle back to the national league west. I somehow skipped them. Padres. It's my vision. I think I got so sidetracked talking about Manny MVP and may. I lost my way there. But national league west, Dodgers, Padres setting the pace, they're tied to top the division, giants there behind the Diamondbacks then in fourth rockies and last all above 500 right now, Padres just had a terrific series. They could have very well have swept the braves. If they didn't give up four in the 8th of the game before, yes, yesterday on Saturday. But they come back and win a tough start with Kyle Wright, had it going yesterday. They have played as good a baseball as anybody in Major League Baseball without Fernando Tatís Jr. and it starts with their starting pitching. The Dodgers also playing Dodger baseball, although just lost three or four to the Philadelphia Phillies. Yeah, you're absolutely right about the pie raise. I mean, you know the pad rates, I almost forgot about tatis, they're playing so well and I know, right? I want to call them our Padres now since I had them in the playoffs in a very tough league. I mean, I think that the national league is a deep, so I think actually just getting into the playoffs is very difficult in the national league. I had to leave out the Giants, the Phillies, which I wasn't happy about. I think those are good teams. American League, I happily left out of 15 teams, but, you know, I think San Diego has got among the best pitching and baseball, probably the deepest AJ's always acquiring somebody, you know, even when we thought they were the deepest, here comes mania. So I mean, you know, he's done a good job at this point. They look very, very good. I mean, the Dodgers are still the favorite, but to me, the rockies are a surprise in the boy that Diamondbacks. What a huge surprise they came in here. They had one guy betting over 200 when they were in New York and that was Seth beer. And then he went on like an over 30 shriek after that. And they're managing to win and I mean, I think the hiring of Brent strum. I mean, the guy must be a magician or something because they're starting pitching is completely turned around. Even Bumgarner that I shouldn't say even because obviously he was a great pitcher with the Giants, but I mean, normally you don't go uptick in your velocity at this stage in your career, so he's at a turnaround Zach Davies who was not at all good last year he's doing well and gallon. I mean, gallon is one of the best pitchers in baseball right now. People thought he had that he's potential, but it was already traded twice. So they figured something out or I should give him the credit. He figured something out and they're pitching looks actually very, very good. I mean, that division is going to be tough though, so they're not going to contend, but let's give them credit. To me, that's the biggest surprise. More than the angels because the angels to me, you know, if you've got trial in your attorney and they're healthy, you know, there is obviously a big potential there.

"You know, sometimes you throw a really great, I mean the Scherzer pitch you mentioned was a great example. Just went down and got that one, you know? It wasn't a bad pitch. Sometimes the other guy is just having a moment and does a good thing. Sometimes he is presented with an opportunity to do a good thing and he politely declines. And sometimes you get a whopper and you're just like, oh, make that ball go a long, long way, and good for a good time for doing that. All right. Well, we're going to do emails today, I think, unless there's anything else you want to touch on, I saw that Jeff just blogged about CS Suzuki and impressive. He has been to start his career. So that has been fun to watch. I had high hopes for him again. Not dissimilar from my hopes from ohtani, which were just that this guy was the best player in the second highest level league probably in the world. And in Otani's case, it was at a very young age. Suzuki not as young an age, but he was the best player in NPP last year at least going by war and also in 2019, I think. And so I hoped that most of that would translate. There's always a question with the power, of course. And that hasn't been an issue with Otani, who just hits the ball so hard and so far that you know it would play in any league. That's not always the case with hitters who've come over from Japan, but Suzuki has shown not just power, but also plate discipline, which seems to set him up for success. Yeah, you know, you don't ever want to make too much of the beginning, but it is nice when there is sort of a proof of concept, right? That there is a demonstration of an ability to do some of the things that we expect there to be some growing pains around when a guy is moving from one league to another. So the fact that he has been able to turn around velocity that he has been able to do stuff against big league pitching. That's a good proof of concept in the next thing that we will monitor is his ability to adjust when the league adjusts to him as it certainly will. And so, you know, we await that checkpoint with some amount of trepidation because he's just never know how a guy's going to do, but you want to see it having been done. The ability to do it the one time is like, well, you have the capacity. Let's see how often you can actualize that capacity. So that part's going to be good. Yeah, it was a big day at fangraphs for guys who have been really good in the beginning and us having to say, they probably won't be this good going forward, but still be excited about them. So we had Suzuki. We had Ben's examination of Stephen Quan with a lovely PostScript about whether fell tips or widths. So as a good day of, hey, this is fun. Chill out, but still be excited, you know? We're trying to thread a very specific emotional needle. Yes. Okay, well, speaking of being excited about things, let's start with this email from Sean, who says, just got into podcast an absolutely loved baseball and love your podcast. I'm a high schooler in the northeast in big La Crosse country. Obviously there are baseball teams too. I want to get these guys to see what I see in baseball. They think it's long and boring. How would you guys describe baseball to make it the most appealing? So how are we going to help shun convince his friends that baseball is not long and boring or he's not just long and boring? It is also appealing. I find myself at a bit of a disadvantage because I don't know what appeals to lacrosse people. Famously, I'm from the northwest where there is some lacrosse plate, but it is not the big sport. So some of my assumptions about lacrosse people may not be generous, and I would hate to have them inform my answer here. I mean, I think that the way that I try to make baseball appealing to people is first to find out what they like about sports, because I think baseball can answer a lot of the things that people like about sports in its own way. So some people are going to enjoy sports as background. And I think if that's if that's your thing, right? If you want to have sports in your vicinity while you are conversing with a friend or a contemplating your own existence, like nothing better than baseball for that, right? This is one option. People who are intensely interested in strategy and analytics and sort of data as a way of understanding the world, like obviously baseball, so much to offer there. If there are more sort of like aesthetically minded people, then you start to talk about the beauty of the game, right? And the way that it unfurls in front of you and all the different kinds of bodies who can play it really well. So there's that piece of it. Maybe you like beer. Baseball has that, you know? As an aside, I went to my first big league action of the year this week. I saw the D backs play the Astros in a day game. And Seth beer came up in a pinch hit moment, like really important, and he did fine. Everybody's excited. And the GX just have beer and they have like a beer as the big video board thing for him. It's like Seth beer, and then there's like a frosty beer in the background. And I was like, I don't know if that's just, it's obvious, but we don't have to be clever all the time. Yeah, sure. If you're hinted at a player named beer. Just embrace it the official survey of your team. Yeah, so like if you're someone who wants to kick back with some brewskis and your pals, you have that as an option. I don't know. What do you say to people when you're trying to convince them to like baseball? I feel very strange trying to convince people to like things. That's part of maybe part of my problem here is that I'm dealing from a deficit, 'cause it's like, you know, if you don't like it, that's fine. You can like other stuff. People like lacrosse. Sure. People are into their cross. Okay. Cool. Good for you. So I don't know how often I actively evangelize baseball actively persuade people to like it who don't already like it, mostly probably the people who read me or listen to me when I'm writing or talking about baseball are already in the fold to some extent..

"It was a lot of fun to see him again and also a healthy trout. And striking out 9 Astros. That is difficult to do because the Astros are always tough to strike out. So that was the highlight. It wasn't necessarily the best game there was, of course, the Seth beer walk off on national beer day national survey day. Talk about this for a second, 'cause I put that game on, I just one of the later games and you Darvish is pitching for the Padres and you Darvish carried a no hitter for a while. Like, you know, to the point that I was kind of surprised we didn't get an alert about it. Maybe we did. I don't know. I was very tired and also I am sick. So the D backs get a hit against Darvish. And I was like, I can go to bed now 'cause I'm not gonna miss the back half of a back end of a no hitter, and if you Darvish no hit somebody, I wanna be there to see it. I don't wanna watch her. So I went to bed. Fully expecting the Padres to win that game, and then this morning, after I had done some editing and was catching up on yesterday's scores, I was like, wait a minute, the D backs won that game. How is that possible? So despite their recent trades, the bullpen might still need some work in sandy. Yes, possibly. Although, Taylor Rogers had not arrived yet. Exactly. Yes. But yeah, that was fun. And that reminds me since I just made my little beer cerveza joke at MLB's expense there. There's a new sponsorship that everyone sent us. I guess this is now going to be one of our new pizza on this podcast. Weird sponsorships, sponsorships. So dairy Queen now was named the official treat of MLB and its signature stack burgers are now the official burger of MLB. Actually more specifically, I guess it's the DQ blizzard treat, which has been named the official treat of MLB. The official treat. Yes. Which seems like too broad. So given away. Specify, especially because it's dairy Queen, famous for their frozen treats. So I can't believe that the sponsorship is not just from day one, the official frozen treat of Major League Baseball because all kinds of other treats out there that you could have both human and non human treats, right? Like there could be an official dog treat of Major League Baseball on explored potential advertising to the dogs. You could have, you know, you can have a, I guess you have salty snacks more than you have salty treats, but all sorts of treats and apparently none of them count except for the ones from dairy Queen. Yeah, I mean, you could define almost anything as a treat. I hope you saw their sponsors could say, hey, we're a treat. We're the official beer or survey of Major League Baseball. I mean, a nice cold beer slash eraser on a hot day. That's a treat. That is how are you giving away official treat. So I don't know, maybe there would be some conflict there. But they could always subdivide it, as you said, and you can have official treat and official frozen treat and an official salty treat or just use a different language, whatever you want to do. But yes, that's our way to speak here. I guess we're playing right into MLB's hands and if we're giving them the promotion. They crave here. This is probably why they do this stuff. But it is amusing the way that they use this language and all this amplification and leverage and synergy and all of the press releases just start filled with business buzzwords and it's like, hey, it's dairy Queen. We don't have to dress this up as anything it is hot. Yeah, you don't have to make it more complicated than it is. It's dairy Queen. It's tasty frozen treat. I'm surprised that you haven't brought up the one that I have received the most notifications about, which is MLB TVs baseball zen. Oh yes, I was gonna bring that up. Yeah, we should absolutely talk about that. So for anyone who was not watching on opening day, the new between innings thing, instead of the old riff, which you want to do it one more time. So instead of that. Follow the energy for that. Sorry, sorry to put you on the spot on the stage. But after that, you would just see highlights and often the same highlights over and over. Over and over and over again. As if baseball was like 6 games that had ever been played. It's so bizarre. I didn't mind seeing highlights, but I was just, you know, let's expand the studio space here with some more highlights open up the archives in the vaults. But now instead of that, at least for now, we have baseball zen, which is just this moment of it's almost like ASMR sort of. That's basically it's like slow motion footage of something happening on a baseball field. It could be the groundskeepers spraying water on the grass, it could be a pitcher scraping his cleats against the rubber. Like all of these just like moments of, well, baseball's in. I suppose accompanied by the sound of that action occurring supposedly. And they're just a few of them. And I don't know how you felt about it, but I like it. I like it a lot. Ben,.

"Television and radio quickly waning about 40 minutes left. When Tiger Woods tees off. The second round. We'll be right in the middle of being in the middle of honestly yesterday. I'm interviewing people and all of a sudden I see my life. That was when he lifted out on 5. I mean, I feel like that was a worthy time for you. You'll be ready for brockman to do the news and he'll be like, wait, what? You know what I mean? It's a war the reaction. All of what's more likely is coming up later. It's all good. It's Pete Alonso okay took one off of his headgear last year. He's the polar bear. So he hopped up right away and he thought he was going to head to first base and buck's shoulder was like, no, no, there was no, no, no. Yeah, there's a 161 other of these. But yeah, he took a pitch off the shoulder and I think it's called the C cup of the batting helmet. It's like a little addition to everybody's been wearing those extensions. Yeah, and luckily if he didn't have that he really took it right in the jar, Richard. Did he get that from goop too? I don't think Gwyneth sells those. Stop. Bobby, which junior with his. How about two rookies? Yesterday with some game winning hits, his was like an 8th inning, go ahead hit. The royals won his first major league hit, the game winning hit, Bobby witch, how about that? Bobby witt's kid. Amazing. Right? He's one of the top prospects. And then on national beer day. Seth beer. I didn't know that it was beard. I was watching that game 'cause I have you Darvish and fantasy. Just like but it's like Mother's Day every day's beer day for people. Especially this weekend. Actually this week this weekend. Masters. Last weekend too. It was hot. Was it hot where you were at yesterday? Yes. It was high 90s at my house. It was like living in the oven, man. Took to coop to his little house. We went to the king's game too. I turned the AC on like yesterday for a little bit. Is that right? Yeah, that's one of the states where it's less than 82°. That's what damn sure I'm your thermostat. What the hell's the matter with those people? So John Harbaugh's coming up at the top of the next hour of the Baltimore Ravens front is the top of the flow chart on the coaching staff. One of my favorite people, John Harbaugh, who's got it better than us. Yes, sir. He's joining us and we'll talk Lamar Jackson. We'll talk about the ravens. We'll talk about the new overtime rules and more coming up next. Took Cooper to his first hockey game yesterday. What did he think? Things games are awesome. They are. Well, again, he hasn't watched all that much hockey. But hockey in person is just kind of a well, they're new. You could make the case that there is no better sport to see in person, and you could make the case that no sport is served less by watching it on television than hockey. Right. I remember the advent of high definition televisions. And four K is huge for hockey because television sets went from square to rectangle and actually the ice that's much better on rectangle. And easier to see the puck too. But yeah, I'm just explaining explaining it off sides and icing and everything like that is. It was like basic stuff, but he picked it up right away. And so the first goal he scored, he saw scored by the kings to get the crowd going, was a shorthanded. How about that? His first home goal. Nice. Was shorthanded. He saw Dolly. What's up? That's what's up. Let's do them hockey, right? Do that. You should do that. Was he surprised? He was surprised by how cold it was, yeah. Yeah, hockey. I mean, freezing. We got in the low level. It's cold. We got a hot chocolate. A little hot chocolate. He loved the zamboni. He loved seeing the ice get scooped up during the ice crew coming out and scooping it up by shovels. An ice crew is pretty nice to look at. Quite attractive. And you could tell a kid of 11 who's never been a hockey before can just buy eyesight, see how talented Connor McDavid is because it was against the oilers. You could see how big he is. You could see how talented he is, how fast they move. Yes, indeed. You could see all of them. He fights. In the stands? I don't know. There is nothing. The usual stuff, the kids dig, which is seen shirtless guys dancing on jumbotrons and things like that. There was some serious stunting there. But nothing gets a kid going, and you know, it's one of those things you'll do anything for a kid. You'll do anything for your kid, right? So when they start throwing free t-shirts in the stands, like I would literally cut somebody's to get that shirt. And it's just like, what, 12 bucks? It won't fit. That's the only time he got up out of his seat. Was it just the two of you? He turns. He turns to me. He goes, I want, I want to get one of these t-shirts, dad. And I'm like, how can I get one? Let's go. I could get one for you. Outside of the stand, but you know, that's the way it goes. It's when it goes. Distracted driving is a serious problem on our roadways, leading to the deaths of thousands of people, and injuries in the hundreds of thousands each year..

"Yeah, I like that Dalton var show plays catcher in center field. Oh yeah. That a lot. A lot of weird. They also have pavin Smith is like first base center field. They're doing some weird stuff. It's not going to be bad. It'll be interesting. Yeah. Yeah. I guess we've talked about weaknesses are ready, or maybe it's just a general lack of strength. Yeah. Yeah, I think that's a good way to put it. It's like a general lack of strength. I kind of wrote Josh Rojas question. I'm not a believer in, I think that's tough if you're starting him every day at third base, which kind of seems like what they might be doing. They don't really have a drew Ellis is maybe the next guy in line there. I'm not sure. RJ Anderson picked Rojas as his breakout pick for this team, so someone really tough. That's tough for RJ. He's in a tough spot. I kind of said the question ability of everyone in the rotation. Can Kendrick can he be a weakness? Can we? No, I think. Yes. Yes, I think that absolutely it can be a weakness. And I think that it is a good diagnosis of what ails them apart from bad health. I mean, they were just, I'm sorry, this is the expression and they picked a snake. It's not my fault. They were just snake bit and every conceivable way last year and some of those wounds were this is where the expression breaks down. Some of those wounds were absolutely self inflicted. And some of them were just really rotten luck, but this was an orc that felt like it was just in the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. For their entire season. Yeah. Well, you might say, it's like an oroboros. Very good, Craig. Thank you. Not only might I say that, that's something I would say. I feel comfortable endorsing that. Well, we're sticking with snakes, you know? And self inflicted wounds. I definitely made an or a Boris pun at some point in my baseball perspective's career, but I can't remember if the exact context. But oh boy. Scott would be proud of me for that one. So if you are disparaging RJ's breakout pick, then who is yours? Dalton varsha, you mentioned him. I think if you want to call last year a breakout, I would probably quibble with it. He was okay, but I think there's a better version of him. And I think there's a good chance we see this year. It's not just that he's a catcher center Fielder and that's really cool. Like I think he's just, I think he's a good hitter and a good player. And all the tools are there for him to break out. And I think he will. He feels like the kind of guy we obviously on this podcast are opposed to the robo zone, but in terms of sustaining this profile and being able to keep bopping back and forth like his receiving is not Sterling, you know. That's bad. Like that isn't that's not good framing, sir. So he feels like a guy who will definitely benefit from the advent of the robo zone and when you take that away as an impediment to him continuing to catch and then you can hit the way he can, I guess, that's nifty. Yeah. Again, if you wanted to argue with him as a breakout pick, his average exit velocity was only 88 mph, which again, not great. He had a lower max than Hassan Kim. So, you know, I think there's some risk there, but I definitely, I just think he has, you know, from his time as a prospect, the capability of being better. And he rookies on your radar. I look through the team, I didn't know kind of who was likely to make it debut. I felt like there was. Can we just use this as an opportunity to talk about the prospects who are exciting and they're not going to debut this year, but we can come out of money anyway. We can do that. But I did have an answer which was Geraldo perdomo is not it's still rookie eligible, right? Correct. Okay, so he was my choice because I do think he's going to play this year. It was really great to see him rebound the way he did after a rough debut and then he went on the restricted list and but he came back. I think he made the majors by the end of the season again. He was very good after, again, after taking some time like back at the complex and stuff. And I've always liked him as a prospect. So I was happy to see him do that. And I think he's the likely next short to stop after the comment. So I picked him because I didn't really see anyone else likely to get any real time. Yeah. All right, well, interesting story slash question Meg if you want to highlight any other interesting prospects you might not arrive this year, you can, but otherwise. I think that they are like, they are the interesting question for me. It's not going to have an impact on the big league club this year in all likelihood. But you know, they do have some exciting guys who are coming up many of whom dealt with injury last year. So it has been encouraging to seek Corbyn Carol healthy in camp and, you know, it was cool. There were nights that I would go to D Bax games, and he was just sitting in the scout section, like the dude is clearly like crazy go nuts for baseball. And he's a, you know, he's a Seattle guy, so I'm always going to be rooting for Corbin Carroll, but Corbin Carroll, when is that happening? What's he look like now? Is it okay? That will be neat. They have Alex Thomas coming up. They have Jordan Lawler. Like they have some guys who are interesting, many of whom have had some injury stuff or are a little further away, but what is useful to the roster when those guys are ready is, I think, for me, the pending question, and I hope that Arizona will look at this season and say, let's try to answer that question. Let's see which of these guys we think is going to be useful either as an everyday guy or a complimentary piece to this roster when some of our prospects who we are excited about are ready to go. So I guess part of my question is, what did those prospects look like? And then also how does the team utilize and view this year and what answers are they able to get about some of the younger players on their roster who might reasonably be a part of the team when they might be good again. Yeah. And other things that are on my mind when I look at this raster, I guess there's the cattell question, how long will he be part of this team? He is signed for this season at a very team friendly rate of 8.4 million and then there's a team option for 8 million a year after that and a team option for 10 million. The year after that, each with $1 million buyout, so he has been very desirable on the trade market for quite a while now and they've held on, but I don't know whether you think that they will continue to or whether it makes sense for them to given where they are competitively and how much they need to get back to justify it, I guess. Yeah, I think he's tricky because he is so affordable. He's not one of those guys that's going to really like if they choose to keep them. And it's I guess the link cost is opportunity cost, really, where it's not like he's going to be a problem for their budget at any point, even as small as Kendrick likes to keep it. The interesting thing to me with this team, I had a couple things going through prospects. I mean, Christian Robinson is such an interesting one. I really hope he's back in a good place mentally and that he's able to take the field and kind of recover there as well. And then one thing that might interest, I feel like it's up Ben's alley, but like Dan straley was the worst pitcher in baseball. The last time he was in the majors, he's back in camp on and NRI, so I'm curious to see what he kind of looks like. And then, you know, as you're kind of talking about with Marte, I just am wondering like everyone's talking about the pitching from Oakland being like kind of one of the only places teams that are looking for pitching teams like the twins have to go. But you know, when we get a month or two into the season, like Merrill Kelly seems very likely to be a trade candidate. I'm wondering if I'm wondering how long they're going to stick with Zach Allen, who's in his mid 20s and has had some injury issues crop up. Like if he's good for two months, would they consider trying to move him for a haul? And would a team move a haul for him given the injury issues. Again, I really like him, but I don't know. I think that's just something I'm curious about is like kind of as Meg said, who's part of the next team and kind of who they draw a line or a box around as keeper verse. Yep, I'd like to see more Seth beer this year as well..
