"spencer strider" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney

"The Major League Baseball network, Michael Harris, the second of the Atlanta Braves one in the national league in the national league, his teammate Spencer strider, as expected, finished second, had 8 first place votes. And adley rushman finished second the American League and Taylor, you as an Orioles fan. This is important because he finished second he's awarded a full year of service time now for Rodriguez Harris Spencer's try to really doesn't matter because all those guys have signed to a long-term deal. So we'll see if the Orioles step up and pay rutman, right? I mean, he's now moved along a full year service time. First of all, they need to, but that sound you're hearing right now is Michael I's trashing his office because he lost a whole year of service time on him. Well, I don't think it was that. But as I've said before, there's a chance a rush made it was one of the top ten catchers in baseball in 2021. The cubs released Jason Hayward as expected. Since we did a pod last week, the astrocyte dusty baker to one year deal, but they parted ways with general manager James click who had been offered a one year extension. We're going to be talking about that with Alan Gonzalez coming up. Some of the signings, relievers are getting paid. Edwin Diaz, 5 years and a $102 million, although there's so much deferred money in this deal that the present day, dollar valuation is for markedly last, I'm guessing somewhere in the range of 85 to $90 million or so. Rafael Montero signed with the Astros three years and $34 million, Clayton Kershaw had an agreement with the Dodgers similar to last year's one year and about $17 million. And Taylor, I'm looking forward to this beyond the conversations with Alvin with Sarah Lang's with Paul henkins. We're going to be talking with DL Epstein. The former heads baseball ops for the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs. He's now a consultant for Major League Baseball on field matters and he's going to be talking to us about the impact of the new rules. Got us some stories from inside the room when Theo gave his presentation last week to all the general managers about what the product is going to look like. It's pretty cool. What else you got? Buster, basketball season is a bound. We've got many offerings over here at ESPN podcast, the low post with Zach Lowe twice a week.

"And I will be completely candid. I think my vote is defensible, I think that Michael Harris the second is a worthy rookie of the year. But if I had gone back and forth on it one more time, I might have talked myself into voting for sponsorship. Either what is this obviously worthy? Yeah. In many years, yeah. And a couple of things I think that recommend Michael Harris also recommend Spencer strider in that Michael Harris, so first of all, we should remark on the fact that Michael Harris is as of this moment 21 years old and 8 months. He was doing what he was doing in the big leagues at the age that a lot of college draftees are still playing college ball, right? So there's that piece of it. There's the fact that he had a very limited time in the minor leagues, you know, he lost the 2020 season entirely as everyone did. And he just didn't have a lot of minor league Ron, and then he comes up to the big leagues, I think that we kind of knew where some of Harris's vulnerabilities stood in terms of his profile, and we saw, you know, the overcoming some of those vulnerabilities and still being very good version of him and his rookie campaign, right? He doesn't walk a lot, tends to strike out a lot. There's chase in the profile, right? And you worry about him getting sort of figured out. And if you watched him in the early going, he underwent a swing change early in his big league tenure in front of everybody and it worked. And that's incredible, especially for a guy where the swing and miss was like the thing we were kind of worried about with him. So I found that in conjunction with just the variety of places that he was able to bring really profound value to his team to be sort of the thing for me, right? In addition to posting a one 36 WRC plus, he stole 30 basis he played really great defense in center field. So he just had a variety of ways that he could bring a lot of value to the club. And you know, when you're, I hope that no one is looking at rookie of the year or any vote and just saying, well, here, let's rank the wars, but he and he and strider, I think, had .1 win of difference between them by our version of war, the gaps were wider for other outlets that have a war. So there's that. But the way that I was thinking about it is these guys really brought the same amount of value to the braves. They brought it in different ways, but they brought a tremendous amount of value. Now stridor, you know, he went from being a bullpen guy to being what he was as a starter. So he also had to undergo a transformation at the big league level and did it with a plum. So again, I went back and forth and back and forth and back and forth, but to me sort of just the completeness of Harris's campaign, the variety of ways that he brought value to the team, ended up being the thing, but again, if I had had one more turn, maybe I would have been like, yeah, but like, look at her. And I will say, it would not surprise me if Harris, you know, has a lot of seasons in his big league career where he accumulates less war than this, right? I still think that there is vulnerability in his profile at the plate. And so if I had to take a sort of bet on who is going to have the more productive big league career, I don't know how I would answer that. I still think that Harris is vulnerable. Stridor is a pitcher, so they're always just prone to breaking. And we saw the injury stuff for him a little bit this year, but for me, and I think this is true for everyone. Like The Rookie of the year vote is in a is in a forward looking vote. That's not its purpose. We're not casting a preemptive Hall of Fame vote. We're saying who had the best rookie season. And so I ended up going with Harris. I think he's a tremendous player. I mostly think that this vote just illustrates the incredible position that Atlanta finds itself in when it comes to the young contributors on their roster. And we've talked about that as every single one of them except for dance movies once signed an extension. So we don't have to believe her at that point, but they really are just in a very enviable spot from a core perspective. We might look at each of the individual extensions that their young players have signed and hoped that maybe in some cases they had signed for more money in some cases a lot more money, but it's a really, really good group. And I'm excited to see what they do. But that doesn't matter for The Rookie of the year vote among that really, really good group is Michael Harris the second and my vote. Yeah, that's a perfectly understandable to me. I'm so stressed about it, though, Ben. Which is stupid, because it's not about me at all. And it's a defensible vote. So it's not like I'm going to. Totally. But I had a really hard time. I really struggled going back and forth between them because strider had such an exemplary year. And, you know, if this is one of those years where they ended up tied, they won't put like if they did, I'd be like, cool, everybody gets what they want and hopefully Atlanta fans look at this and appreciate the Lake difficulty that we all had in ranking them. I imagine strider's going to get a fair share of first place votes. And I wouldn't be remotely surprised if you won. I don't think I will be in Dan's case position from last year where he was a voice in the wilderness. So that's nice because I am at my core anxious and praise seeking. So being alone on an island would feel bad, but I think that given how great Michael Harris season was, I'm not likely to be in that position. Yeah, he voted for Trevor Rogers, right? He was the only one who gave Trevor Rogers a first place vote. Correct, I believe that that's right. Yeah. Yeah, I don't think anyone will give you grief for voting for Harris. I don't think anyone would have if you'd voted for strider. I have not analyzed this in anything like the depth you did because I did not have a word for it, so I don't know what I would have decided.

"Sports at 15 and 45 powered by Red River, technology decisions aren't black and white. Think red, hey rob, how are the commanders doing? All right, well, they're holding their own against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. And look, I'm not gonna say that I had the blueprint to beat this team, but Washington is out gaining them. They've dominated the clock, and they have a takeaway. Let's go live to Philadelphia, George Wallace's live at the link to back up what I'm talking about here. You didn't have the, you just told us the blueberry if you're going to tell us that we were going to say, you just told us. 1410, Robbie, I Philadelphia with the lead. Washington had a chance there on a fourth down in one. But get a delay a game, which pretty many excusable I had to settle for a field goal from Joey's sly also had a pretty good play design there, but they do leave. They do trail 1410 Jalen hurts has a touch dart run and also a TD pass Dallas gallery it also just threw the interception there at forest, Washington has the ball at their own 25. Taylor heinecke, 6 to ten 72 yards, but Washington is running the football, Ryan Robinson, 13 Gary's 45 yards on the ground, the team 68 on the ground in total and also 6 of 8 rob on third down. So the offense playing pretty well. I don't know if they can keep up with this eagles offense all night, but right now 1410 fairly. Yeah, and also that takeaway by Jalen hurts his first interception since week four. So that's how rare that is. Washington playing pretty well there. And the other football, D.C.

"Sweat, that would, you know, he's not like an alien, but he like douses himself in water. So he is artificially wet anyway. Yeah. He's one of the wet ones. Speaking of long haired players, Harrison Bader without the long hair. It's just not the same. It's so crap. Performance wise, I guess it is. It's not a Sampson situation. He's hitting for power. He did well in the series, but he just looks like a different guy, and I ascribe less joy to him because his flowing locks are gone. That he's a Yankee. I know. You're all very serious about yourself over there. Not you. It's not your problem, but you Yankee folk, not the fans. Fans I bet would be fine with hair. I bet they're like hair's fine. Son, not my mom. It's like, are they still doing the facial hair? Good. To keep doing the fish. Okay. Very interesting. So does she not like Cortez's mustache or is she okay with that? I don't know that she actually pays enough attention to know that. But there's some conservative streak in her likes the old fashioned. Interesting. Facial hair policy apparently anyway. Yeah, interesting. Well, we've talked some about what the match ups are going to be here. Albeit in an indirect kind of way. Yeah, yeah, I didn't feel like there was all that much to say about the division series because, well, most of them didn't go the distance. It wasn't like they hung on one moment necessarily. I mean, there were certainly some controversial decisions and things that people wish that their managers could take back, but I think in most of those cases, yeah, you could nitpick some decisions, but often there was a better reason or more obvious reason why the team that lost lost, like they just didn't hit. They just got out pitched pretty clearly. Yeah, you could quibble, maybe with some pitcher usage decisions. Brian snitker, trying to push Spencer strider a little too far, probably. Got a couple of dominant innings out of him and they had said that they only wanted two or three and they kind of pushed them too far having not pitched for a month in a game and then things fell apart a little bit. Okay, there's that. Or, you know, people, there's the usual Dave Roberts kind of controversy. I think much less so than in some prior postseasons. There were people upset maybe about using yens Monte and save Evan. You can just say Craig's name. You don't have to be who I am. I love you, Craig. It wasn't like the most questionable, David. There's always something with Dave Robertson and pitching usage. This was not nearly, I think, to the extent of some other series, but. Well, I think that we joked at some point this season as more of their rotation sort of either was hurt to the point of not being available at all or was clearly still coming back from injury or maybe a period a bit compromised that he just wasn't going to have enough starters to get up to any shenanigans in the postseason. He wasn't going to be able to deploy those guys in relief. You know, they have this incredible bullpen. So he stuck to script for the most part, which I think when Ben Clemens graded the managers and the division series on the NL side, the AL will run tomorrow, because obviously we didn't have a complete grade until today. We'll have an AL preview. It might run ten minutes before the game starts, but whose fault is that? It's not ours. Can blame those Yankees? Get mad at them on me. Yeah, and the weather. And the weather, yeah. But it's more satisfying to get mad at people, I think, than nature. Because nature feels so impersonal because it's not a person. Yeah. Hence all the nitpicking of pitching moves because that's something you can very easily criticize. Intentional decision as opposed to, why didn't you just hit that 101 mph fastball? Yeah, that would be nice too, but that's hard. And like, hey, I understand. I got very worked up about Robbie ray and when and how he was deployed and I understand that when you have a guy who's had as incredible a season as Evan Phillips that when your season is on the line, you're like, but why, where is, isn't he? When will, you know, so I get it, but yes, I think that as these things go, it was not the most egregious sort of performance on that score. Dave did a mid plate appearance pitching change, just a little treat for effectively wild. It didn't work. This evening. So that was another thing he got criticized about because he did something unusual, and I don't exactly know what the rationale for that was anyway. It was one O when that happened, but I got some tweets just because I'm the strategy, the mid plate appearance pitching change guy. Anyway, I guess the other maybe kind of controversial managerial pitching moves thing. I guess there were a couple in the Cleveland series and then in game 5, The Rain out did advantage the Yankees to some extent, again it was MLB that made that call. It was not the Yankees making that call themselves. And frankly, MLP could have done a better job about making that call.

The yanks jumped out to a quick two zero lead on Sean Carlos Stanton's two run first in the home or off Shane Bieber. But Bieber settled down after that, enabling Cleveland to tie it at two with runs in the fourth and 5th innings. The latter on a med rosarios Homer. The guardians then wanted in the tenth with two blue pits followed by Josh naylor's RBI double to send the series back to Cleveland all even. More excited to go back as a team, set it again on this plane ride, and just kind of enjoy the moment, enjoy the win today, and then get locked back in tomorrow. That series now moves to Cleveland for game three. It was game three in Philadelphia where the Philly scored early and often, they beat Atlanta 9 to one, Michael Longo has the details. Philadelphia took control of the game on a three run home run by Reese Hoskins. That was later followed by a two run home run by Bryce Harper, Harper drove in three runs for the films who are one win away from advancing to the national league championship series. This is what it's all about. We have an opportunity to clinch at home. We have an opportunity to come out and hopefully strike first.

"Always gonna hit that pitch out, but he's just been getting on base and trusting the guys behind him to drive him in, which worked in game one. It didn't work in game two. So I think that's encouraging the fact that Nick cassiano's showed signs of life for the first time in maybe his entire tenure in Philadelphia. In game two or game one, sorry is encouraging. I was calling for Dalton Guthrie to start and right field, and I've stopped doing that. I mean, it's another thing that goes back to the horrible cliche that I brought up with Padres Dodgers is like, this is a series today, is like aeronaut who's been every bit as good as Zach will or if not a little bit better and coming back home and yes, Spencer strider who was created in a lab to see if it was possible to get me to like someone who went to Clemson. He's going to be back, but he's only going to be back for like two to three innings and maybe less, I don't know what that rust is going to look like, whether how much he's gotten out of sim games. So this is a Phillies opportunity. And if they lose today, I don't know if there's a realistic way back, but if they win today, then even without Wheeler or Nolan the mound, like they've only got to win one or two. And that's just such a huge advantage. It doesn't matter that they're the worst team with worst pitching from that point on. How are you feeling about Zac eflin closer? Yeah, what the hell happened there? How did that happen? I don't know what happened on Tuesday. I also don't know what day of the week it is. I haven't known what day of the week it's been. Since 2014. It's a miracle I showed up for the MLB show every Friday. To be completely honest. But he looked really good late in the season coming out of the bullpen in like a one one inning plus role. I think like obviously I would rather have him in the rotation, but I feel good about him as the closer. Well, I guess that's Philly's bullpen adjusted feeling good about this. Well, part of it is it allows you to have alvarado and cerani Dominguez come in and stomp out rallies and get you from the, you know, from the start or whoever it is to the 9th inning. I think it's easier than you'd think to pitch a clean 9 9th inning with nobody on base, but like that allows rob Thompson to take his two best relievers and target them to tougher matchups. And I think, you know, effluent just letting it eat for an inning at a time is plenty good enough to be a closer. One more thing I wanted to say about Harper, he has hit the ball harder at least than he had really after he came off the iel. So that's encouraging, but Joshi and his series preview wrote that there's no path forward for the Phillies that doesn't include Harper hitting like Bryce Harper and I kind of objected to that just generally I mean, I guess I probably wouldn't say that about any player necessarily just because it's baseball and you can always advance even if your best player doesn't hit in that particular series, but also like the Phillies were easily a winning team without Bryce Harper or with him when he was basically at a sub replacement level after he came back. So it's not a one man team or a one man offense. They could get pay without Bryce Harper hitting, obviously it would be much easier if he did. But it's a deep lineup. You've got gene Segura that deep in the order. It's not going to sink or swim with one guy. I think what's really been killing the Phillies is it Hoskins and shorebird are like one for the postseason at this point. There's not a path forward for the Phillies if Harper doesn't hit like Harper and also the two guys in front of them like literally never get all base. That's where things are really falling apart. And one other thing I wanted to ask, would you go with Wheeler on short rest if it gets to that or bring back ranger Suarez? I'd bring back ranger Suarez. I think Wheeler is still not so far removed from that injury that I would want to take that chance. And if I did come back with him on short rest, I would want to do a sort of piggyback. Like ranger Suarez figures in the first 5 innings of game 5 no matter what. If I'm managing the Phillies, whether he's starting or whether it's a piggyback thing and you'd get Wheeler once through the order and then once through the middle of the braves order and then you bring in Suarez for the bottom half, something like that. Yeah, I feel like I lean more toward great starter on short rest, often and it's maybe different with someone who's coming off an injury. I don't know if it was set up for there or I'd bring back the lawn short rest. But wheelers still, I'm not a 100% convinced like he's back to full strength like in terms of stamina, as well as he pitched the other night, so. Then again, like he got a relatively early hook and he worked pretty easy, so maybe that was a setup to bring him back for game 5. Who knows? We can't have a reunion episode of the MOB show without my at least mentioning the possibility that they could pull a curly octane maneuver because we learned Suarez. Opposite hands. And Atlanta doesn't really platoon much, but they did have a slightly different starting lineup in games one and two. So who knows? Maybe

"And a pop up foul ground may be a play Sosa racing over makes the catch in front of the Phillies dugout in the Phillies have won the wild card series. The Phillies move on to play the Atlanta Braves in a series that start on Tuesday. And by the way, just as we started the podcast, the braves announced that they've signed Spencer strider to a 6 year $75 million deal, the Atlanta Braves Taylor just locking up everybody. Like they've got like it feels like half their team signed for years to come and they're got a group of great young group of players. You're relaying that news to me right now and I can not want to steal. Are you kidding me? 75 or 6 years, that's incredible stuff. Graves, you gotta hand it to you. They are very well run. They're locking up their young guys and they, you know, essentially what's going to be team friendly deals pretty impressive. Now on Sunday afternoon we got word from the Yankees that are roll this Chapman went AWOL on Friday, not showing up to the park because real batting practice, Yankees manager and Boone spoke with him. And after their conversation, basically told him to stay home and really gives the Yankees an easy out to remove him from their roster when he probably isn't high on their list of options anyway. Matt Carpenter, by the way, says he's ready to come off the roster without restrictions after recovering from a broken foot. As Yankees general manager Brian cashman spoke with reporters about the Chapman situation, he was asked about the forthcoming Aaron judge situation and he referred to the talks and the big money that Aaron judge, that made on himself this year, is being lucrative. He said there's a pot of gold there. If you have to be determined what the gold, how much it weighs, but it's a pot of gold, no doubt about it. So good for him, it was already a big pot and obviously it'll be bigger. Now, on the other side of New York last night, the mets played hosted the Padres in the only game three in the wild card round. In game two, the Padres had stepped out on Jacob McGraw constantly and then they used that same strategy again on Sunday Night against Chris Bassett, Austin nola was at the plate for San Diego.

"Beat to grum Scherzer and Bassett back to back to back. They hit back to back homers off of Jacob de Grom and done that since 2000. He hadn't done that since 2019. They beat Max Scherzer when he had a lead and they not Chris Bassett around pretty well last night that guy is a really good pitcher, just another reminder buster. The braves are a better team than they were at this time last year. Spencer strider, when he comes back, Michael Harris, other options that they have. I really like that team, but to watch Dan's Swanson in the biggest moments come up with the biggest hits, we should not be surprised anymore by what that guy does. And here is Matt Olson with a home run in four straight games and 5 homers in the last 6 games at the most important times those guys were there. And this is not a criticism of the mets, the mets are going to win a hundred games. They were not overwhelmed by the braves. They just got beat by a better team. And that's what I saw this weekend. Yeah, and I'd say this too. And I started to have these conversations with dansby Swanson during the postseason last year. We talked about it again on Sunday. I really think that now they're experiencing the postseason becoming a significant weapon for them. And I asked dansby about that. I said, tell me about your perspective about how you guys handled big moments, you know, playoff games when you first started this little run that you guys are on to now where you've been in two national league championship series. You won a World Series. You played in big games. And he talked about it becomes part of your DNA. Like you expect not only to win games, but you expect to win games at a high level, and it felt that way this weekend. And by the way, it's not like the mets don't have guys who know how to win big games. Matchers are the Grom. You know, those guys have been in the World Series before they've had success in big moments. But even the youngest braves Tim look so comfortable in these tense moments. And that's why this team really does remind me of the lasting went back to back championships in 98 to 2000 Yankees. I covered because I always felt like that when they got into October, that experience became a significant weapon. What do you think? And you were there buster in 2001 when the Mariners won a 116 games and I remember people whispering before that series, they're not going to beat the Yankees because the Yankees have been here many, many times before and a lot of those men, not a criticism of the Mariners. It was just what playoff experience really means. And that's what the braves have now. Dance response is the only player to start every game this season for his team. And it shows in the way all of those guys play. I think they have a faith themselves that this is our time of year. After we haven't had a team repeat since that 98, that 98 through 2000 Yankee team, I think this team is good enough to do that and boy do they show that over the weekend. Yeah, they played great. They pitch great and just as someone who loves baseball and loves specific plays now important they could be yesterday in that game last night, a pivotal moment for me was that decision by Austin Riley did not pick up that little roller down the third base line. Tim which, as I'm watching it play out, it doesn't even occur to me that he might just say, you know what, I'm going to let it go because they can't make that play and he winds up having the ball go, foul, it felt like by about a half an inch and you could see Joey cor is one of the smartest people in baseball. Third base coach for the mets, like his physical reaction was like, but it felt like if Austin Riley doesn't do that, that game may have played out completely differently. What did you see on that play? Yeah, well, first off, that's a pet peeve of mine buster. The ball is rolling down the third baseline. And the third baseman has to recognize if I try to feel this ball, I'll never gonna get the guys. So it's a better chance to let it go. Maybe it hits a pebble and kicks and foul territory before it gets to the bag. Austin Riley recognized that. I can't throw him out at first base on this. So I'm gonna let a roll, even though it might be obvious that it's gonna be fair. Let it go, what's the harm? That's a really smart play. That is a really smart baseball team that the braves have. And you're right, that play might have helped turn that game. And as we know, that game meant the whole season. The winner of that game is going to win the east and it was the braves in part because they played so well, and they were smart. Yeah, it gave Charlie Morton a chance to breathe. And it's a chance to work through the stuff that he was going in a falling behind the count as Brian snicker said during the course of the game. He recovered, they come back and win. And of course they were using home run stamp, which to me, you know, when I watch the mets, there's nothing, but when we met with buck show older before the game, he basically said in so many words, I'm not going to apologize for a team that's going to win a hundred games. And I think that's exactly the right perspective, but I would say, as you watch these two teams play now, it does feel like a great middleweight fighting a great heavyweight because the braves hit a ton of home runs. Since June 1st, the braves of a 179 home runs and the mets have a 117 home runs.

"spencer strider" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"Little bit about the AL Cy Young race, I suppose we haven't talked much about the NLC English because it sort of has seemed like a contra has had that sewn up for a while, although depending on which were you look at, which pitching stats you look at, not necessarily. But just because he has the innings lead in the lower array. It seems like he's been the presumptive FrontRunner for a while, but again, like there's time to talk about those things, but what we have maybe overlooked a little is The Rookie of the year race in both leagues and I know you have a vote in the NFL. I'm kind of strong handcuffed. Yeah. I've been shoved into a locker. Are you not allowed to discuss it at all? No. It's not allowed to discuss who you're voting for, which you may not even know at this point. I don't know who I'm voting for. Okay. I don't think you're allowed to talk about who you're voting for in advance. I think that we can talk about their relative merits, but I'm going to tread very carefully because I don't want to get a meaning email. I want to be stripped of my voting rights. I don't want to be boosted out of the BBW AA. I got trouble to cause. I don't want to get you in trouble. I have proposals, but I have some proposals. Sorry, you know, I gotta make those. Okay, yeah, keep your powder dry for that. But the point is that both of those races regardless of who ultimately wins really close, like just as close as the other awards races we were talking about. At least going by fangraphs were, it's neck and neck in both leagues. And they're both fun races and again, like we can just say, they're all great. Yeah. Matt Kemp's old tweet that Sam loves so much about the Hall of Fame where he just said, put them all in. They should all be put them on. In the AL, you have Julio and you have adley Richmond. Yeah. Who are almost indistinguishable, according to fan graphs were. And then in the NL, you have a couple of Atlanta rookies. You got a couple of guys hanging out in Atlanta. Hitter and pitcher take your picks. And Michael Harris the second. And again, very little daylight between them and fangraphs were. Maybe a tad more in baseball reference were. So Rodriguez and Richmond Harris and strider, strider who is memorably listed on the a's broadcast this week as a way pitcher dot short name in brackets. Those are just fun players on fun teams and also players who I think for the most part are very promising, so they're not in the genre of rookie who's having a good season, but you don't know whether they're actually a good player and it's like, well, we could still vote for them for rookie of the year, but it might look a little weird decades down the road when their careers didn't pan out. People don't have a lot of concerns about Julio and Richmond long term. And obviously the braves don't have concerns about Michael Harris the second because they just locked him up for a long time and Spencer strider really good as well. So hopefully we will be watching and enjoying these plays for a long time. But just fun races on fun teams and players who have helped revitalize those teams. Like strider and Harris have been so big for the braves this year, ruchman really turned around the Orioles season. I don't want to say single handedly, but Baltimore before and after. He definitely played a big role. Yeah. And then you have another guy who hits team just made a big long-term bet on. So love them all. I have to vote. I don't have a vote. So I don't have to make any difficult decisions, but it's just kind of fun to contemplate. So like pretty much all of the major awards this year. I don't know that there's like an obvious shoe in most of them and there's some really intriguing debates and discussions. If you're someone who likes to have those. So here's a here's a little question for you, Ben. I want to make sure that my understanding of the rules around this stuff are accurate. So I am given to us I'm given to understand that per the new collective bargaining agreement. If Richmond places in the top two he will receive a year of service time, right? He'll be credited for a full year of service time. Despite not being up in time for that. But because he was not up on opening day, the Orioles are not eligible to receive a draft pick to reward them for his immediate promotion. Is that understanding correct? Okay, so quoting from a piece from our pal Evan relic, teams who promote players in time to receive a full year of service, which is a 172 days so opening day or very shortly thereafter have a chance at additional picks in the amateur draft so the Orioles didn't do that and perhaps couldn't do that because Richmond was hurt at the start of the season, right? Right, but then he was down in triple-A for a while after he returned from injury. Some of which I imagine was him rehabbing in some of which was probably not. However, a player who has rookie eligibility opens the season with 60 days or fewer in service time and who is included on two of the top prospect lists gets credited with a full year of service, even if they were promoted too late on the calendar to otherwise have received it if they finish in the top two in rookie of the year voting in their week. So yes, I think that's right and Richmond seems like a cinch to be top two. Right, and he would have been, I mean, he was obviously even if he wasn't the number one prospect for every publication was a top prospect in the publications that they're looking to, which I think is BA, ESPN, and maybe something else. Yeah. Yeah. Dot com, probably. I would imagine. Oh, sure, yeah, yeah. So, you know, interesting that dynamic is sort of interesting in that race. Again, I think you are right to say that this is like a two person race and the service time stuff doesn't matter when it comes to Julio because he has this massive contract. So he's sorted and so that you have that wrinkle around Richmond. And then in the NL race, much to my relief. Because of when strider was promoted, which was quite early, he was probably, I imagine he was on the opening day roster for Atlanta even. Yeah. And then Michael Harris's second extension, like that dynamic doesn't really matter there as much, which made me very nervous and then was alleviated. So thanks, everybody. But yeah, it's just like a lot of, it's a lot of good young players. I really fell off, didn't he? Yes, very much so. Yeah. It's been batting a lot lately. He started so well. He looked so good. Yeah, it looked like this is a case of the league adjusting. I have not looked into the specifics, but yeah. Yeah, it might be time for someone to fantastic dot com to take a peek under the hood at Jeremy Pena. And be like, what happened to you, Jeremy, Pena. And then, of course. It's better than Jeremy Pena, at least right now. I wish right now, you know, long careers and what have you, but at least right now, and we would be remiss or at least that I would be if we did not point out that just like, man, Steve and Kwan, what a cool thing. What a cool thing for Stephen Cohen. What a year. What a year. Anyway, that's me. I appreciate Stephen Quan. I'm surprised he has even three home runs. Don't remember a single one of those, but my website tells me that he has hit the so good for him. Yeah, I will be, I will be really curious to see how people try to sort of define the Julio versus adley thing and sort that out because there is a contingent of voters who do care quite a bit about sort of how long you've done the thing. But you know, you're right to say, we have two points of WRC plus difference between them. I'm surprised that Richmond does as well as he does both baseball reference war because they don't include framing. So yeah, look at that. I mean, he is, he is very good defensively, you know.

"spencer strider" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney

"It's definitely longer. Locking them up with contracts as opposed to just having young talent that will then be free agents because in the white Sox case even, they're still going to arbitration with most of those guys and they will hit free agency when they're supposed to. But Atlanta Braves, they're going to bypass all of that. And be able to go into those free agent years and then have team control, which is insane. For these young talented players. For sure. And the handful of them have already won a World Series with this team. So it's almost like part of that pressure is off also that they know how to win. They know how to plan October. No one's going to say, oh, they're too young, because even though Michael Harris, the second named von Grissom and Spencer strider haven't been in the postseason contributing in that way. You know, these other guys have awesome Riley and Ozzy albies and so on and so forth. So we know what this seem can do. So it's not the pressure of okay girl together now go in a World Series right now. No, I totally agree. And I think that's that and you can also be yourself. That's an understanding that and has it these young players is that they are definitely they must be the type of player that he sees that look, you're going to go out and work hard because I think my biggest fear of my GM is I sign you this big huge contract and now you're like sweet. All right, maybe I don't show up and lift weights every day. Maybe my off season looks a lot different. You're getting young players that could go the other way. We're seeing that with the San Diego Padres and some of their young players when they signed for big deals and some of the decisions that are made now do those happen, whether you have a big deal or not, I don't know. But the point is is he sees something in these players and I'm hoping an understanding of I'm going to sign you to this big deal knowing that you're going to continue to have the work ethic continue to make good decisions and it's anything play even better because now you don't have the same pressure. You are going to be you and go out and have as you know with baseball players that insecurity can now be less and you can have the confidence to know that this organization backs you. Absolutely. Absolutely. All right, just thank you so much for joining me. Enjoy volumes for it. Enjoy the games. Thanks, Sarah. It was awesome talking to you. I'm joined now by my colleague and friend Juan trivia. Who covers the doctors for MLB dot com and Juan, I wanted to talk to you today because there's been some news around the Dodgers lately. We found out on Monday walk popular will not return this season. What updates do you have on that surgery and what his timeline might be? Yeah, it's kind of interesting so that they announced it as an elbow surgery. So naturally, we started pressing what type of surgery is it. And they just kind of wouldn't say. They said they don't really know he kind of got her playing catch, which has never good, right? Like if you can't even do that, that's not a good sign. You get an MRI, they saw some damage. I'm sure they saw something in there. They're not going to cut them up for fun. So there's definitely something in there. They just want to say after the surgery. So we're still kind of trying to figure out what's going on. We're obviously on the road. So we can talk to any front office members, walkers, obviously not here. So I guess we just got to wait and see till August 23rd when his surgery is. But yeah, it's definitely not good news for Dodgers. I mean, I think he's somebody that they probably needed in the postseason, whether it was as a starter, which I think it's a little bit more unlikely because he was still probably a month away. But if he can give you two innings, I mean the two inch walker beaters better than tuning the most people. So especially in October, which he seems to kind of enjoy. So that was definitely a big loss for them. So as far as the timeline, I guess we just have to wait and see what the elbow surgery is. It was kind of a bizarre day. We're just kind of like, but wait, why are you guys doing this? And what kind of visit? How long is it going to be out? But I would be shocked if whatever it is, whether it be minor or major or whatever, that it doesn't beat into next season. At least at the start of spring training. You know, it's interesting. Unknown elbow surgery until they get in there. I believe that happened with Ken to my last year with the twins, where they said straight up, we don't know what is going to be until we see how bad it is in there. So I think her baseball for the Dodgers for everyone have to hope that somehow this is one of those cleanup surgeries as opposed to something like Tommy Tommy John, excuse me. But you alluded to this how helpful he would have been to the team in October, even in a relief role. And I 100% agree you really made a name for himself in that 2018 postseason. So we know how nails he can be in October. How do you think this affects their chances? I mean, they're going to win this division, but at October, in the postseason and going deep because it's interesting. They're dealing with these injuries at the same time that the other, the second best team in the national league, the New York mets is dealing with pitching injuries over the last two days as well. Yeah, and just kind of really quickly about the surgery. He actually had a clean up after he got hurt. So he had a flexor strain. And then he got a clean up for, I remember exactly what it was. But he definitely had a clean up in there. He was like, I've been dealing with this for a couple of years. So it is kind of, I mean, it's interesting. I mean, they're pretty hopeful, but it's nothing crazy. I mean, he's been, I think if it was Tommy John, Ben going to the worst case scenario. I think they would have probably announced that by now.

Brady cannon and Adam Burke here with you for one more segment of the run line before we pass the baton to Scott's sidenberg for the look ahead, a fine baseball handicapper in his own right indeed. And we're continuing to scour the Monday card Adam and I were talking off air. There are some fantastic pitching matchups in Major League Baseball on Monday and another one right here between the mets and the braves, the two teams, one and two in the national league east division, Carlos Carrasco, and Spencer strider scheduled to open what is a four game set in Atlanta, New York will enter the series with a 5 and a half game lead over Atlanta in the division. And I tell you what Adam, this ought to be a beauty and I was thinking about this when I looked at this game and kind of was drawn up our handicap before the show today. I think if New York can escape this four game series in Atlanta and increase that 5 and a half game lead in the division to 7 and a half games, I think it's over. I think they win it. Yeah, I think so. And look, I think something that's really important to talk about here, as I've mentioned already throughout the course of the show, if you can generate swing and miss, you can take care of this Atlanta lineup. They are really, really good. Don't get me wrong, but when they face guys that can generate swing and miss, they don't have the same kind of projection, which is part of the reason why, the mets one four out of 5 in that series. The mets have a lot of high strikeout pitchers. Carlos grass goes just below a strikeout per inning, but his swinging strike rate this season 13.4%. So that's the percentage of whiffs relative to swings. So this is a guy that does have swing and miss does have almost 47% ground ball rate. Carrasco matches up pretty well, I think, with Atlanta because Atlanta wants to pull the ball in the air and wants to be able to make a lot of contact and it's hard to do all three of those things against Carlos Carrasco. So you mentioned this number during the break, I was kind of working on the newsletter here a little bit, but you mentioned this number and I thought, that's a little high. I love Spencer strider, but it's a little high, so I'm curious to see if this line comes down a little bit. And as of right now, I think it's mets or pass in this game. Yeah, I'm seeing minus one 45 on the Atlanta Braves and strider with a total of 8, I would probably lean a little bit to the under and I'd certainly be looking to back the dog here. I know the braves have kind of picked up it was other than that series against the mets when they dropped four out of 5. They have picked up again where now they have won 6 in a row. So either one of these teams is tough to get in front of. And that's kind of a situation when you have in football. If you've got two teams that are relatively equal, take the dog. Take the points, right? Right. I think taking the plus money would be the way I would look to go here. The Astros are in Chicago to take on the White Sox and let's see how good the White Sox really are, right, Adam. Okay, a, can they make the playoffs? B, can they win the division? And C, will any of it matter because are they good enough to make any noise in the postseason anyway? I think this series here with a legitimate World Series contender in the Houston Astros is going to answer a lot of those questions. Yeah, I think so too. And a tough blow for the Astros here with an announcement that Michael Brantley will not be back this year. That is tough. I love watching him play baseball. He's a professional. So good. It was great to watch him for so many years in Cleveland. Just, you know, he rolls over to second base a little bit too much for me. That's the one flaw about his about his performance as a player here. But interesting one here because it was like Jose or kitty and Johnny cueto in this one and Johnny cuota is a guy that I've talked about in the regression report on the show and also written about endpoint spread weekly. So no line on this game though, so I'm not sure if there's some question about who's just I saw minus one 30 on the Astros, a road favorite and a total of 8. Yeah, this one just popping here over the last few minutes. If the Astros are still minus one 30 in the morning when I go through the article, I think Houston is probably the side to look at here. Is a guy low strikeout rate, but he's having a lot of success on balls in play. He's stranding a very high percentage of runners. That's very hard to do if you're not getting a lot of strikeouts in the Astros don't really strike out. So I don't really expect the White Sox to do much of anything against your kitty. If I can get this at a decent price and it's a pretty good price behind us at minus one 30 here. I think the Astros will play. I agree with you. I mean, that's as cheap as you're typically going to find the Houston Astros, and I don't know exactly why there's, I mean, it seems like there's a lot of respect built in that line for the Chicago White Sox. I've already voiced my opinion how I feel about this team, but you talked about I thought you made a good point that Johnny may not have a lot of success if he's not able to strike batters out. And he's really no longer a strikeout pitcher. Right. Yeah, and again, I mean, you know, his banning average on balls in play is very low. His left on base percentage is very high. This is not a particularly good White Sox defensive team. It's just, I think this is one of those starts where you could see cueto's regression come into play. The Dodgers at the brewers and this feels very similar to me, Adam, the brewers, we're going to find out how good this team really is. This is also a four game series with the big boys, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and in the opener it'll be Julio urias taking on Freddy Peralta and I think this series right here is going to be very, it's going to tell us a lot about the fact that the Milwaukee Brewers and their fate, if you will, if they're going to make the postseason, I think they're going to have to split this series at worst. Well, this is a low key pretty good pitching matchup too. Meredith is really, really good as we know. Freddie Peralta is a guy still trying to work his way back off of injury. This will only be his third start. Since returning to the rotation. So, you know, he's faced the pirates and the rays. So this is a little bit of a step up in class here. Four Friday Peralta and some of you and I talked about during the break and something I probably should have mentioned when we talked about the Dodgers having won 12 straight on the run line up until today. Any time they are priced under -200, they are taking money. It's starting a little bit here already for this game, but I think it will continue as we go forward here. If for some reason it doesn't, and this line swings back towards Milwaukee a little bit, again, another context clue in the betting market reading the tea leaves, another indicator that the people that model and project these things out and all of that, if this line comes down, they like Milwaukee, they like Freddy Peralta. That would say a lot to me because we've seen just automatic fires on the Dodgers at anything under -200. You know, it's hard to get in the habit of betting and I'm seeing roughly minus one 63. We've got it up there on the graphic minus one 65. It's right in that ballpark currently. And you're not going to get rich betting favorites at that price all along. But it feels like it might be a little bit cheap on the Dodgers to me at that number because, you know, we talked about it. Milwaukee is going to have to play a big boy here and we're going to find out a lot about how good this brewer's team is. They haven't even been able to handle St. Louis over the last week or so let alone the Dodgers. Right, it's one of those things where are the Dodgers invested if the answer is yes. You're probably with that point where they might what is it, what do they call it in the NBA? Load

" AP sports I'm David Schuster, lots of baseball Tuesday and we begin in New York with the subway series between the Yankees and the mets, Tom Marion fills us in. The mets won the first game of a rare subway series with both New York teams in first place, 6 to three over the Yankees. The angst jumped out to an early two zero lead as Aaron judge and Anthony Rizzo hit homers on consecutive pitches off Taiwan walker in the top of the first. It was judges 38th Homer this season, but the Met struck back for four runs in the bottom of the ending on Homer's by starling Marte and Eduardo Escobar. Pete Alonso had a key double in the rally. This is just such a great team win and we had so many different guys contributing. So this is a really good, really good, really good wind for us, really good team win. Alonso had three hits and a walk in the game as the mets maintained their two game lead in the NL east. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, Atlanta doubled up the Philly 6 to three with Spencer strider getting the victory for the braves. Every lineup in the big leagues is challenging. And the game is in my hands is the picture. And so I don't really think too much about the strengths or weaknesses of the lineup that I'm facing. It's more just sticking to my plan and trying to execute what I'm good at. In Chicago, the cubs won their 6th straight game, but they're likely going to be big sellers at next week's trading deadline and that very well could include all star catcher Wilson Contreras. Knowing everything that's happening around and I knew he would get to me at some point and which this day never came, but it's about business. I understand that. I respect that. And I love my team. I love this. My team is most other highlights Tuesday, Shohei Ohtani hitting his 21st home run in an angels win at Kansas City and Milwaukee outlasted Minnesota in extra innings. Pro football news, wide receiver Julio Jones will soon sign a one year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cincinnati quarterback Joe burrow will soon undergo an appendectomy. I'm David Shuster, AP sports.

"We've got 5 confirmations for the home run Derby and you could shut it down now and it would be a great Pete Alonso defend two time defending champion Ronald lacuna junior Albert pools Juan Soto Kyle schwarber were waiting for official confirmation on Giancarlo Stanton. We're waiting for official confirmation on Julio Rodriguez, who you mentioned before, he's an exciting player. You know, we'll see if Will Smith has added the all star team. There's been talk that maybe he would be the guy who would represent the Dodgers and Dodger stadiums home run Derby. What do you think? Yeah. You know, I was asked the other day on a radio hit about Pujols doing the home run Derby. Why would you not want to see Albert Pujols in the home run Derby? I get it. He's going to win probably not, but let's see how he does. One of the greatest hitters of all time, you know, doing the home run Derby at what 43, 42 years old. Yeah, I'm pumped. And the fact that Soto and Acuna are doing it again, that's great for the sport. Because we see a lot of these young guys. They do it once, and that's it. And it's easy. Look, it's tough competition. There's always the risk of somebody getting hurt, which we think what happened to Aaron judge back in 2017 when he heard his shoulder. So I love the fact that those guys don't have to do it and they're coming back to do it again. Yeah, look, I'm not going to pick our pools to win the event. Right. I'm probably going to wind up picking Juan Soto because I just saw last year. I mean, that guy was motivated. He really wants to win, you know, you got Pete Alonso's experience. But I would say this, what is Albert Pujols struggles now at is a player in his early 40s. It's not hitting the ball far. He's problem is catching up with velocity. And that's not an issue in this event. I could easily see him being the guy who gets into a groove and just rips out a bunch of home runs and shocks everybody. And yeah, his swing more than ever is tailored for fly balls. That's kind of all he hits when he does connect. So yeah, you know, the raw power means maybe he doesn't, that's what makes a Lonzo so good. Alonso doesn't have to work hard to hit home runs because he's so strong. And that fits pool. So yeah, maybe he'll shock us here. All right, I know something about the all star selections has gotten new to your skin. We'll start with this. They tweeted out yesterday after some additions were made to the all star roster JD Martinez among the three players added yesterday. I tweeted out this morning that, hey, who's the guy who's not on the team who's now most worthy, some of the candidates that I threw out there, Josh bell, Austin Riley, Freddie Freeman, Daniel Bard, ty France, of your Mariners. Some of the tweets followed that with mention Zach Wheeler, Dylan cease. There's Kyle Wright, there's Spencer strider. There's tummy Edmond. What about you? If you were to pick one guy, I'd like to see added. Well, my one guy, well, there's two. Can I say to go Austin Riley and Freddie Freeman? And here's my rant. All right, Bryce Harper voted in as the DH in the national league injured camp play. Why do we need to put two other DHS on that roster? William Contreras. It's a nice story. The guy has a 140 at bats. You know, he's really OPS over 900. He's been great, but he's not at all star. And then they added Garrett Cooper of the Marlins. Great for him. You know, kind of one of those vets that just hangs around and a nice player, but Fred, why are you picking Garrett Cooper and William Contreras over Austin Riley and Freddie Freeman? The goal should be to get the best players to the All-Star Game and these last two fill ins are not good choices. No, I completely agree with you. I think that as I talked about with Tim on Monday, you should use the DH for some flexibility for adding guys who from other spots who haven't been able to fit in, maybe because there's a position saturated with great players. You know, third base, for example, this year it's nationally first base, has a lot of guys. So you can squeeze those in. Shoot, if you walked up the William Contreras today and said, what's your position? He's not going to tell you he's a DH. So the idea that he's on the all star team, as you said with a 143 plate appearances, is kind of silly. And it's funny in the way braves fans who give them credit, they hit the ballot box, but in a way, they screwed Austin Riley, who's a great player and was great last year. Out of a roster or by voting for William Contreras. And yeah, look, I remember years ago, the American League had Derek Jeter, nomar Garcia Parra, Alex Rodriguez, and Omar vizquel. And they found a way to put all four of those shortstops on the roster. So yeah, you're right. If a position is loaded, who cares? Find a way to get the best players there. Yeah. And hopefully that'll happen. I mentioned that, yeah, I think the question about Will Smith is whether or not there's going to be a spot on the roster for him, and if there is and maybe he becomes the 8th guy in the home run Derby. Our old friend and colleague, Jason stark Hall of Famer, reported this week about the pie slice experiment with defensive shifts that there's going to be this area behind and around second base where defenders are not going to be allowed to stand because baseball wants to restore the good old fashioned single through the middle of the field. When you read this, what did you think? Well, I get it. I think what they're finding out is Jason pointed out and his article is that limiting the shift in the minor leagues actually isn't adding all that many base hits. You know, 'cause you can still stand a guy right behind the second base and cut off those hits up the middle. So yeah, this will add more hits, no doubt, I'm torn on the whole thing, you know, in the end though it gets to, what do you want to reward? That's why the second baseman plane in shallow rape field always bothers me because if you hit a 110 mile an hour laser and there's this guy playing there, you did your job and you're getting you're not getting rewarded, you know, but at 8 hopper up the middle, do we want to reward that? You know, I guess that's what we're debating. So I don't know, I'm okay if it gets a few more hits in the game, I guess maybe that's good. As we've done all these rule changes in recent years, putting the runner at second base in X three innings, et cetera. I've got to the point on it where it's to me. It's all like plastic surgery. You want to create what you want to create.

"A marks along with my dogs, of course, you just heard one in the background. I'm rolling solo today, so no play, no playoff, a Tyler, or an Erin, or a Doug, or a Joe, but let's get right to it. And let's start with some Major League Baseball. Big game tonight, Yankees and rays. We saw Gareth cold dominate last night right 12 strikeouts. Took a no no into the 8. Love nasty nester tonight. Usually he plays off that energy from Garrett Coley 6 and two of the one 9 four ERA. So how am I playing this? I'm going to play the Yankees on the run line. You can get that at plus one O 5. I'm also going to play them on a parlay with them winning on the money line as well as the total over of 6 and a half runs. You can get that at plus one 55 and nasty Nestor getting the win at plus one 25. Again, I think he's going to feed off Garrett Cole, that energy, that momentum going into tonight. The Yankees, their four and one, their last 5 games with a plus 15 run differential, unbelievable, 74% win rate. Their averaging 5 runs a game. They've got the tenth best batting average in Major League Baseball. Meanwhile, for the raise, Fleming will be on the bump for the raise. He's got a 6 three 8 ERA, only an 18% strikeout rate. Yankees don't strike out, although they quite a few last night to my surprise, but nonetheless, the rays also they struggle offensively 24th in Major League Baseball. They're one in four with a minus four score margin in their last 5 games. So I do believe that the Yankees roll tonight. Some other Major League Baseball games, I'm eyeing. Let's talk about the braves. I like them against the Giants. I've got them on the run line at plus one ten. I also like them in the first 5 at minus one 20. Spencer strider will be on the bump for the braves. He's three and two with a two four 5 ERA. He's been pretty solid. And as we know, the braves have been great as of late. They have won 16 of their last 18. They're playing well. A lot of motivation for them because they're 5 and a half games back from the mets who continue to win as well. So while I do like the braves tonight and another play talking about the mets, I'm rolling with them on the money line at plus one ten against Houston. Also, I like them first 5 scoring over two and a half runs for the mets Williams is on the bump for them. He's got a three two one ERA. He's only given up three runs in his last 5 starts and he's a long reliever, so we might see the bullpen early, no concern there. The mets their bullpen, one of the best in Major League Baseball with three 6 four ERA, the Met as well has been just as hot. As Atlanta has been, they've won 7 of their last ten and they're great against right handed pitchers, and you've got your kitty going for Houston. He's got a 6, 16, 6.16 ERA right now with a 17% K rate. So I do believe the Met do extremely well tonight and again, I think there's some good value on the money line at plus one ten. So those are my Major League Baseball plays for this Tuesday night. I'm off the next few days and of course we've got the travelers championship in golf that is taking place. So I thought I know I'm a day early, but I'll give you some of the winners in some of the plays that I'm going to make. Hopefully there'll be winners, some of the plays that I'm going to make heading into Thursday's tournament. So again, it's the travelers. It takes place in Connecticut. It's one of the shortest courses that that's on tour that's one of the tour stops, but still golfers that drive the ball far actually do extremely well here. You don't get in a lot of trouble driving the ball far off the tee box. So where am I rolling? I'm going with Rory to win it at 9 to one. He's got a great track record here at TPC river highlands tied for 17th or better all three starts his last three starts here. His putting and this is really I buried the lead putting is the key winning here and his putting has been off the charts. He was first in strokes gained putting at Brookline coming off the U.S. open where he was plus almost ten strokes, unbelievable against the field in putting. So if that flat stick continues to be hot, chances are he's going to win it here. He's third strokes gained off the tee and top 20 in approach. To finish in the top 5, I'm going with sun J M, you can get that at 6 to one. I loved him last week. I picked him to win the U.S. open. Unfortunately, he missed the cut by one stroke. He got the bad draw. The bad draw was the p.m. start on Thursday in the a.m. start on Friday. Unfortunately, because of the winds and bad weather conditions. But the one thing about him that I like is he does well always bouncing back from tournaments that he misses the cut. And that was a pretty big one because his metrics, he's been off the charts this season. 12th in strokes game off into the T second in par four scoring. That's a big metric to win here at the travelers as well. 8th in approach in third in scrambling. So Sanjay M definition the top 5 at 6 to one. Now, a little deeper down the road. Top 20, give me McCarthy at two to one. He's coming in hot from the U.S. open. He made the cut and on Saturday and Sunday, he shot a pair of 68s, which was really really impressive because we know how difficult that course was playing is putting his flat stick has been great. At the U.S. open, he ranked 8th in driving accuracy and 5th in greens and regulations. So I think McCarthy is a short trip, right from Massachusetts to Connecticut. So I think he picks up where he left off in the finish in the top 40 Patrick Rogers at plus one 40. This is a great feel good story. This is his, this is his favorite tour stop. Why? Really special. This was the first tournament he played in ever when he made it on tour. And he's made the cut 6 of his last 7 starts. In fact, he came in third in 2016. So this is a track that he plays well. Chances are he is going to make the cut and I really like his odds to finish in the top 40 at plus one 40. So there you have it, three Major League Baseball players for tonight, as well as a look ahead to the travelers championship. Hopefully I've presented some winners for you. Again, this is that's it for today. It's funny. You do this podcast alone. You do hit it within ten minutes, if not shorter. So we promise. Please do us a favor.

"spencer strider" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"It's not like the mets have had a classic mets collapse or anything like that, but the braves just have not been beaten and they've been playing weak teams during that stretch. So there's something to be said for that. They played like the rockies and the pirates and the a's, I think, and maybe one game against the Diamondbacks. So not your strongest opponents, but they have, I don't know, cut the mets lead in half or so. It's a race again, I think. So the braves are 5 and a half back as we speak of the mets and they're making things interesting and I guess it's been a bit of a team effort. It's been players they've promoted from within. It's been some rookies. It's been pitchers who've done well. Like Spencer strider moved into the rotation and Kyle Wright has been very good this year and they've kind of picked up the slack for Charlie Morton and Ian Anderson and then a lot of the bullpen has been very effective, not always the same guys who were great in last year's playoffs, but other guys they've been very good and then of course you have rookies like I guess in center field Michael Harris has come up and has been great defensively and has also hid and William Contreras has been good, but also Ronald Acuna. Has been back and he has really been back. He has not missed beat. He has a one 60 WRC plus this year, which is right where he was the last couple of seasons. He was like one 58 one 57. So he is right where he was and he has seemingly lost some sprint speed. I don't know if he's lost it or if he is just taking it a little bit easy as he comes back, but he's lost a foot plus per second and he's gone down from the 97th percentile to the 73rd percentile in sprint speed, but he's still stealing a lot of bases. He's stolen 11 in 14 attempts. So he is hitting like his old self and he is running like his old self and overall he has been the braves best hitter during the streak, so having him, which they did not for April. That's a big boon too. So we thought the braves were good and they look pretty good lately. It's one of those things where team adds back exceptionally good player. Suddenly is playing better news. Right. Yeah, maybe not that shocking, but. No. But, you know, when you have a guy coming back from an injury like that, you don't totally know what you're gonna get. So a reassuring bit of expectation coming true to be sure. Yeah, and, you know, the mets still have a 61% chance to win the division according to the playoff ads, but slower than it was, so suddenly you're looking at your injured aces and thinking, yeah, we might actually need those guys and then we might need them to come back. So, and in the NL west, because of the Dodgers sweep in the loss of viewer, they're down to 52.4% chance to win the division. So Padres and giants still in the running that is very much a race even though the Dodgers have been great. Well, and one of those things where you look at it and you're like, there's your expectation of winning the division. There's your expectation of making the playoffs. And then you have to grapple with the reality of what happens when you do, but your down guys like that. And hopefully his injury recovery progresses the way that they hope it will, and he is able to come back and have a couple of starts in September and then go on in October run, but it makes you feel less certain than you were before. And this was a team that, you know, despite all of its strength, we were, we were a little bit nervous about what the rotation depth would mean. And we're having to test that much earlier into the year than I think a lot of people were hoping. It would help if they could hit though, you know. That's the other thing is that they just the last little bit, not for a long time. They just haven't been scoring that many runs, which is while given the run differential we talked about last week. All right, well let's end with the past blast. Fast blast. This is episode 1862, and we will be talking about 1862. There was a Civil War on, it was not a great time, but let's talk about baseball because baseball was still happening during that time too. So first I will just follow up. We talked about base hits last time, the definition of a base hit, like what qualifies as a base hit is a home run, a base hit, just because does it have to be a single base? You and I, I think we agreed that generally the way we would use this is to talk about a single, right? Yes. But technically any kind of hit is a base hit. Rule 9.05 of the MLB rule book says a base hit is a statistic credited to a batter when such batter reaches base safely as set forth in this rule 9.05. The official score shall credit a better with a base hit when the batter reaches first base or any succeeding base safely on a fair ball that settles on the ground that touches a fence before being touched by a Fielder, or is that clears offense. So technically, a home run is a base hit according to the rulebook. Now, Richard hershberger, who has been supplying our past blasts here, historian saber researcher and author of the book strike for the evolution of baseball, he provided some historical perspective on the term base hit. So he says the historical pedantic explanation of the term base hits is that it is a shortening of first base hits. So this term arose in the late 1860s with a column in box scores labeled one B this did not mean signals, but rather hits in which the batter reached at least first base without the benefit of an error. This awkward construction was necessary because the word hit was used in its ordinary sense of any time the batter hit the ball, whether fair or fell, and whether or not it was caught. So the one B column appeared in box scores into the 1890s, but was gradually displaced by the shorter B as the long form first base hits dropped out of common usage in favor of the shorter base hits. This in turn was gradually but not completely displaced by the yet shorter form hits, as reflected by the H in modern box scores. In the meantime, the official definition in the rules has remained substantially unchanged. The technical terms hit base hit and first base hit are synonymous, the difference is merely one of how many syllables you want to use. So that's why we say base hit, that is actually shortened first base hit, and we could shorten it further just to say hit, but we haven't completely lost the base hit construction. And I think it's still useful for a single just to specify that it is a one base hit. And listener Joe wrote in to say he had a thought about this. I tend to think of a base hit as a hit that isn't yet defined. So it mostly gets used this way a ball drops in for a hit, the announcer says a base hit for so and so, but we won't know if it's a single or a double or whatever until the play is over a few seconds later, but we know they've gotten a hit of some kind. The reason I think this doesn't really apply to homers is that it's very rare to know someone got a hit before you know they hit a home run. Almost all potential home runs that don't.
