"Slate slater austin slater of the giants nico gudermes got six or seven steals now the choice so bad they play them every day. It's more like a utility guy but he my bet to thirty this season but nego could end up with like twelve homers and twenty two steals. That'd be pretty valuable for a lot of people even on. Espn standard is your middle infielder. You can make a case for nico good room. So i would take him over. Slater and robbie grossman doesn't have a whole lot of power. But in points league those walks add up so do robbie grossman and appoint league which is espn standard. But in a rolling out. So much. I don't think he's really. That really fast feels basis. Because he's smart now like the year lance berkman did but i don't think he's you know he's not mild straw. Let's put it that way now. Straws bad very well said on grossman. Because i forget who is having this conversation with. I just don't see it. So many people were big on robbie grossman this preseason but it is the points leagues where i think you're extracting the maximum value. I keep mentioning. Tim castro sprint speed. The guy's amazing for that and they are finding spots to play him. If you just need steals that's what you're after. I don't have an issue with him. He knows how to get on base mainly because he kinda leans into pitches gets hit by pitch twenty times a year. We talk about tyler. O.'neil previously on the show. I still think he's very underrated in terms of the speed scores for you as well. There's nothing i mean among available hitters there nothing that that steals basis as bad. I mean don't more. Is this close to losing his job. Like if you have to accept that. It's you know most of these players especially when you're adding right now are going to hurt you somewhere else. Hi what's next bertrand's steals. Were so much fun. I was so that to pull. Neil ryan klesko. Remember that year. I remember that twenty twenty steel. Yeah i love it when guys like. That's how you find. Those are the league winners. Twenty live thought you had four. I've got the limit. Eric is gonna love more than anyone else in. History manny machado. Excuse me he's good. We know about him. You're the stolen base year. Remember that you were on that. Well he was a guy who we knew could steal basis and then he just didn't do it probably about the injury he went from like two to twenty and he hasn't done that since because i said i thought he could and he's not done it since that was one of the year after he stole twenty he still zero zero one. What we basically tells you that song basis for most for nine years polenta these guys is just i feel like stealing bases and that's it i could prove to you that i can steal basis by the kalmyk. If you look at his scouting grades unsure. He has top shelf speed. I think it's more smarts in the bates basements. And what. I worry a little bit about is that it's sometimes a learning curve for those players at the majors so little careful on a gaudy stolen projection. I think the most important thing is where where they battle. One lefty power hitter and its seager could make the case about counties not hitting sega's third fourth whatever you wanna do seattle. I mean haniger off guy probably not bataille francis and hitting like. I don't know where bats in the lineup where were maximizes value. You want higher. I wanna back second because he can still basis still knock in runs. New american league's d. h. So like lamps extended even if it's like know torrens batting ninth but the point is the number to lineup spot. People is where you put your best hitter in sim and fantasy whatever. It is real managers. That's where they go. Yeah and they don't do it some do some do. Some guy did that with a player can tell martini marietta. This really lucky crazy season. I don't know what kind of morons like that you know. Fifty seven homers yellow second and that same similarly again. Because i want him batting the most and you had a huge year with them want it. Mvp anyway. That's why i want to see county batting second. But i doubt that's what happens. You're mike knows you guys generally aim for the best player in it specific deal are you willing to seemingly pay to get the top guy and a two for one sort of thing. Absolutely look i don't care about overpaying. As i just mentioned inch and a half hour ago i i need what i need for my team and so it kind of depends but i mean let me make sure i get this correct Yes i'm willing to overpay to get the guy i need whether it's needed to strike out guy peralta or i need a closer or i need a guy for the future. I've our pay plenty of times. 'cause i don't care how it looks i care on my team does so if your goal is to win a trade. It's the wrong all tristan. You do a better job in trading than i do but like you're willing to overpay when you need to aren't you like i know we're pays also like go couple different ways like i look at a tree okay. There was a trade. I don't think this guy listen to this show. There was one of our leagues yesterday. Where i texted you and davey right away. I'm like oh my god that was all right. Let's say it's a dynasty league it said but it could easily be fantasy. Mookie betts was traded for jared county josh young and three high draft picks up for re draft picks for the other team there but the draft picks remember were thirty teams so most meaningful. But it's like it's a plastic related draft. Yes i could make the case for that trade being overpay and underpay celtics great. That's fair yes bogeys. Great now but the point is like he just wanted him. 'cause you're gonna save team seattle. You'd like you can. That's an overpay. That's okay because county kim. John could be really really good. Yeah and what. They're not right now. It was a huge homer trade. But i agree with you. You could make the case very easily for either side of those. And i do think you should aggressively overpay. I will say that you should do it more. So the smaller the talent pool in your league in other words. If it's a shallow mixed you should be more. Aggressive in overpaying because the level of replacement is much higher. You can get guys to fill in the cracks of the back of your mind. I want to maximize roster spot. I possibly can the other thing too. Is you mentioned that similar. Got so on the keeper league. Play the twelve team where we carry over twelve major league players a year. We've gotten stale on trades like this that everybody throws out the. I'm looking for a two for one or three for one where i'm giving up the extra bodies. But they are not making the calculation that they should be overpaying. Be giving up guys. Who if you're grading on his scouting scale twenty to eighty. If you're trying to get the eighty grade player you should be giving up two guys who grades sixty five. You should not be giving up to players. Who grade fifty. It's not just Let's give you a big pile of my garbage for your one great player. You know it. You know what i'm talking about i know talking about. I want to ask you a follow up question to stop and yesterday because one guy on our league was not very pleased that that trade does a fantasy owner or simone or anything manager does he have an obligation to send the league in email or post somewhere. Saying i am making mookie. Betts available offers considered or. She's just do whatever he wants. Where do you stand on that. I do not think that there's an obligation to do that. I think it's wise to do that. I also think it's unwise to do it if you're trying to get everybody to beef up the prices. You should not use people against each other to negotiate. I look the people who believe you. Should i don't but if it was me and i was trading a player like mochi bets. I would say. I'm strongly considered signatory making a trade. You wanna get an offer in san juan. my way. that's the best way you get value. And that's the way you should put it. But he wanted to tell you don't no but in hit no. I don't think there's an obligation. I do agree. It's wise but in this case he wanted county nick because he's a mariners fan so it worked out and it might work out just fine. We'll know for two years. But i.

I.'s twenty two stolen bases on base percentage of three thirty five an opium of eight fifty four now I what I don't oh is if they were to make a move like that would they still make a run at Anthony Ren dome and if they were to get Lynn door who would go out they would almost for sure and they would almost insist on young pitching so I mean but it may be guys we don't know the names of and that's the way a lot of Jorde oh yeah I mean I think they did they would insist on somebody we know the name of that I mean the name Orioles are destined may has better beyond their if their you're getting Francisco Than Door seger too though yeah you're giving up you're giving up a guy who's a potential star short is cory seager Francisco in the door he's good he's not Francisco in the door you have to lead baseball in doubles last right you have to give up more than cory seager like a fair trade would probably be Eh Seger and one of those guys may Aureus for Lindores think you're underplaying how good cory seager your underplaying Francis your is your is younger than Francisco Door Francisco indoors better court yeah well he is he is very good player but to say that you would take Seger plus somebody like Dustin May I think that's a little bit too much then you're giving up too much to get Franscisco Indoor I think the Seger and maybe you know somebody in the Mi- In a triple legged a good picture that somewhere where keyboard ruis sure maybe maybe everybody is looking for paging that's the problem dodgers actually some you know so I would think that's why they would consider but I would love that I would love Francisco Indoor coming here so if you had just door but if you do if you trade for of money to go after John Linder is still on a cheap contract did you pull up his salary yeah it's rate it seems to me that that would depend unless you got to take one of your big money contracts but I don't think they would arbitration eligible in two thousand twenty signed through he's signed he's done he's one hundred there's one year ten point wait a minute million this year he's arbitrations arbitration eligible right now he's a free agent he'll probably win that what is he asked for seven eighteen seventeen and gets I don't know twelve well no the wherever attrition works as you can say twelve he'll say something you'd get twelve people don't get seventeen in arbitration he might you got ten point eight five last year he'll probably go just a little bit higher than I don't know if anybody's ever gotten seventeen in arbitration it's pretty high it depends what the other team comes back with what's interesting is a cody bellinger's going to arbitration this year same with Seger really they're both are everybody's going to arbitration-eligible now Josh Donaldson and Twenty Eighteen Actually endore was sixteen point seven and two is sixteen point seven and twenty twenty he's already under their estimating points yes he's really good yeah he's fantastic inland see here's the thing you look at the nationals we're GonNa win the world series now it looks like they're gonNA lose it yup I wonder if that matters is the result of the world series matter to Strasbourg and I don't think it makes one bitter I think they're both gone I think they're both leaving I think they're both leaving I think Washington will take a run at both of them here's the here's the weird thing let's say the dodgers make the deal for Linda who is an all class all world shortstop Yup and sign random K and by the way they're like eighty million below the luxury tax threshold because they've got seen that scenario you think turner goes to second and then becomes utility I think about it you got Monte I you've got Luxembourg second you've got lindores short you've got random at third and then jt as the super utility he can play I he can play second he can play third when those guys get nights off and he may be becomes a four hundred and fifty at bat guy as opposed to a one year left on his he'll yes one year left and I would not imagine passed this year jt's here so it's a longer term play it's pretty I to me that's pretty audacious that would be a phenomenal infield for the dodgers if you were to do something like that even just adding door fantastic great defense shortstop Guy Guy is potentially thirty thirty guy twenty two stolen bases last year eight fifty four O. P. S. I mean adding a guy like that to the lineup while do you think Garrett Cole ends up at the angels you know I think the angels are going to Angel Fan who grew up in their backyard I I mean it would give them a home field advantage and it doesn't hurt that they brought in Joe Madden right they've all of a sudden got a big time manager in there so yeah I think that they're gonNA get a starting pitcher and it wouldn't surprise me Garrett Cole who who I was watching the world aries was fantastic last night in in game five and did you happen to catch the big surprise during the game yeah I haven't in fasttrack but we can do it now if you want it was it was interesting the big surprise well I although I I think those girls were kinda crazy like a Fox okay why don't we do it next next two girls came up with an idea last tonight and then to say they executed perfect as he did Mason Ireland. ESPN LA hey hey it's the Mason in Ireland show at our new time or you have a collection of very old and worn out rams gear yes that is my favorite sweatshirt that you own actually looks clean appears that you washed it was wash it is a it is a Nike Rams It's good okay yeah it's a Hoodie bill belichick coach Rams over there good for you I like okay I have an absolutely lucky one this is not the lucky one I have a lucky one wait a minute did you wear the lucky one at the Super Bowl you can call it that anymore then it's out but they tend to win when I'm wearing then it's out philosophy super bowl well I'll tell you what where some regular season games see if you can get it's Mojo back but do not under alerting them that they have been banned from attending the remainder of the world series.

"You've got a Bushel of more a gaggle of them. Were Pick your word for a group aalto. Various Mir Myriad Combo meals jose altuve they Ronald Kuni junior jeans and cotton wall old. Did it on Thursday alone Friday. Okay was Danny Santana who are dropped earlier in the week. I was smart Victor Race on Saturday supposedly no power but he did that day and Sunday out sucker and I think I could beat our pool Senate race. I really do I do. I play up every Sunday. I gotTa Send You a photo of Bruce Hand. I think I've broken my hand and blue. Oh my line of how can I start you now you can't you I'm like I'm questionable for Sunday Sunday talker with a home run in the steel. That's that's a guy to watch where you know like. I think we're GONNA know that he's a starting outfielder for them. Next season yeah I think he's among the highest candidates on the list of won't have a job promised when camp opens but does so well that forces teams hands so give me his number said I give you five hundred plate appearances twenty homers twenty steals is a thirty ten because nobody wants to steal basis anymore so I I think it's like thirty two eighteen if he's a regular thirty two and eighteen yeah okay and but he's a bit busy though is that you're worried I aw I like to be con- I would have projected someone the to sixty to seventy range Jack Petersen Remember Jack Petersen was thirty last year in the minors and then he just decided to stop running in hit home runs in the majors which bothers me still to this day is 'cause I mean we don't know if Donald Trump is going to do that yeah the difference between those two for me is that I felt like Peterson was is the patient guy who wanted to work. Even a kind of like what Brett Gardner does just wants to work counts up. I think Tucker is a little bit more aggressive than that but again I I it's it's such a tiny sample in the majors. Oh Yeah Yeah. That's the thing I mean. If you draft talk your you have no idea what you're going to get and let's give credit here to call. That's twenty two stolen bases. which you might think is not that much but there's only eleven players in baseball with more than twenty two stolen Bases Malik Scott to forty four you still get the fifty Adalberto is at thirty nine achilleas journeys one home run and four stolen bases for a forty forty season about how well and they're going to? They're going to clinch soon so they'll clinch the division but they're still going after the dodgers for the one seed which they probably won't get but man. What am I think it has to be the number one player and drafts next year and not because trousers got hurt? It'll be fine you find in a month alone march by Man I. I think if I'm doing rankings today a KUNA has to be number one of trout and you can make the case for Yelich over trout I too because of the stolen bases thirty basis trout is eleven. It has nothing to do with the raw ability the player or how much value they have on the field to their real team team. It's about the importance of the categories and I I. I'm making a statement. I think Kunia one yellow to trout three. Is that crazy that crazy isn't it absolutely absolutely not. It's those three guys. I bet that's what I'm saying I A- Belgium but I mean I'm GonNa go with the cop out one one a one bay okay so I'm entitled to do that because your top your top five next year so I just gave you mine where I'll give you my three and then I have to do the work on four and five you you can. I'll say bellinger's well. It's not easy because I don't think you're GONNA have trout number three. I think you're going to have them to one or two. I'm GonNa four and five. Ah I WANNA say mookie. Can we still say mookie five or is it just yeah I as I said what might be Mochi Lindores the one I want to make I think I would take Linda's right now. So is that your five in that order or different probably the the thing with Mookie is that his career has gone with little bits of ups ups and downs where I think the buying times or the seasons where he's coming off this time of year and that was the the MVP here. I remember in the preseason. I was very big on the fact that his quality of contact was very good and his batting average was poor to reflect it and I think he still I think he's still a top five candidate. I just I personally prefer indoor all right. Let's look saves as the Closer Caruso. Ali Peres got to save that look. You're not picking up Oliver Perez Okay but if you've got brad handily you're not to please that he didn't pitch. We'll Smith did save Sunday's win. I thought he was out for the week. I didn't assist them but got brad hand. You gotTA worry here anything actionable for this week that you would do like like picking up Jairo de the as or picking up another Cleveland Reliever or the cubs like is there anything actionable that you would recommend at this point. We wasted enough time this season talking about like the the mets and Hanzel robots robots out there and seventy percent of these pain leagues. We don't want to pick them up but he's good. He's had a good season and he might even have been a top ten closer since the all-star break. I don't know how I look that up but in Kennedy robots have been really really good since the all-star break. Nobody's one of them but anyway I I don't think I could dig that. I don't bother but like actionable seattle the cubs anything here or no don't even bother Seattle and I saw Anthony Bass being a popular pick. I don't know that there's going to be an awful lot of wins but we mentioned with the Louis schedule. It's the three in Pittsburgh three in Baltimore winnable games so if you gotta do the desperate thing feel free I actually look for a minute and Jose Ranya because of the starting pitching eligibility didn't go there ultimately but if that if that matters in your lead you starters versus relievers than okay by all means go for it higher was the the top guy at my list in terms of the available players in my deep mixed in l. only next year I say Josh Eight number one closer but I'll ranking around nine or ten but you brought up the homeowners and he he gave the Edmund homer was heaps going keeps yeah. He's just throwing his fastball man. That's it if you make contact now it might be a different baseball but still curb as would be to from me or or a roldos meteorologist safe. It's a lot of saves a good team and it will still tick down you mentioned at this year so I'm concerned about all three of them I mean I don't know if Kobe's are going to go up. Blake trial and on US Speaking Oakland Liam Hendriks say he comes into next season as Oakland's closer. That's a top ten closers Oser isn't he. What would be the argument against him being a top ten closer? I'm not saying that's the only thing I think the argument against him. It's GonNa come into opportunity not him well to say he is the closer we know the close rank them. Do you rank him over Kenley Jansen Craig Kimbrel next year who who don't WanNa put in my top five closers next year. You're flipping living. You're giving me the promise of the job is there's open. It's Hendrix over to you you over Chanson up one man because he ask incapacitated to not be the closer like you never be a set up man you just like Kimbro Woods with Janssen is it's possible that the winter's rest will do him some good but he has been taking downwards in terms of the rough stuff and if he's a pitcher in transition than you know if you can't rely on the cutter he's not marrying a Rivera which was really the the year-over-year year-over-year appeal to Kenley Jansen in my roth stuff is just about gone to let me just tell you well after that bruising your elbow. I'll ask you this though since you mentioned Chapman Chapman's one of the ones who talk about role has the opt out. He's not leaving there. Oh I think he's opting out why because you can get more money Yup Yep good guy. I think there are going to be a lot of players in that situation. You know I'm Outta. You know what I mean. I think. Jd Martinez is leaving. Maybe he'll join us so you don't think he does all this ops out and jd does not what APPs taking a look at the schedule today. There's a four ten. PM Eastern game it is on ESPN plus. Check it out yeah. John Means Business of Baltimore. He's actually better than you think people. John Means. He's been find this year consistent top ten over the past week past thirty days facing somebody named Tyler Alexander. You don't want spotted starter. Jon Means at Detroit though you can make the case to pick him up. What's the second start? The second start art would be home Seattle. John Means is actually pretty good ad. I should've added him instead of police AC. That's good starts. Four straight quality starts parts for John Means. I'm not smart why lodgers I honestly thought to myself that's Baltimore. I really want John Means. I thought exactly seconds to good starts arts here. I want him. I didn't know the only anti here's just Detroit I'd rather have the writing against them but based on the quality of performance lately you pick it up. Gary Richards this is I. I doubt absolutely not KIPI going five innings. Kenny Garrett Richards is the one guy with a shot at two starts in the League referred to before that I could add and then I looked at him he he was awful in his last Rehab Start. It was three weeks ago no yeah I think it was three weeks ago and it was on a pitch count. Kevin Guzman's is back in the rotation for the reds that or missing the playoffs on. I'm missing the playoff missing the playoff yeah he did not adding but it doesn't matter to me. He's not going deep in this game right that Milwaukee okay come on right. It's a five inning situation a bad pitcher in a bad part for pitchers and I came back. I know Gaza Cole Hamels. I dropped Hamels the pickup play sack. Maybe it's a dumb move. Please housman terrible of late muscling them. Yeah is going deep. I'm not I'm not trusting. Cole Lamb was this week. I'm not definitely not trust and Kevin Guzman the to start guys are awful on Monday yeah other than your stress Lopez that Robbie Ray. Oh my opponent wanted has Stephen Strasburg no taking a look at a Tuesday here moving on a long you pick up doing Bundy as to start this week one vs versus Toronto and then Toronto Home Seattle. That's pretty good see now. I know I shouldn't say this but I'm going to say it anyway. How do I trust this deal and Bundy in my head to head semifinals? I couldn't do it Tristan. I looked at the available starting pitchers for the week. I saw John Means I saw doing bundy. I saw that police AC. I didn't in hesitate to pick a place sack. Like how can you trust Dylan Bundy this week. Even against too bad offenses I can't do it. They're good match ups. He has a high likelihood of getting to at least into the sixth inning but he hasn't been anything. Special lately or has lots of wins. He's at Pittsburgh on Tuesday against Mitch Keller. Maybe I was just wrong about Mitch Keller or maybe next year he turns into like a you know a top thirty starting pitcher and fantasy but he hasn't looked yet he has consistent so even against Seattle which might get get to mingle and Tanna back rather way not that that matters on picking up Mitch Keller You keep sticking with Matthew Boyd the version of Cole Hamels. They're pitching so poorly I I know they're good. I know they have strikeouts onboard side and Hamill side. It's a strike up ring but I can't use matthew point anymore. Trust I trust them anymore. Just like I can't trust Hamels to lefties agree. I agree with you and so does the forecaster forecaster hates him. ESPN plus on Tuesday has Patrick Corbin and miles Michael's. I benched Michael is for the week in that head to head league to pick please sack second outing of the week from Michael I either I didn't like it or I was scared of him. Michael This is second is at the cubs. I don't one of them home Washington at cubs Michael's five innings last couple of outings no saying no and we did mention by the way with that schedule. It's on the pitching side. I'm much more bothered. The defense for the cardinals is that they have been pitching staff of the past. I think it's three weeks four weeks or so. Be Activating Carlos Martinez for the week yes only because it was was it an infection or something like that yeah it was something like it wasn't like an arm injury or physical ailment so I think he should be okay..

"All right Thursday. Jonathan V._R.. Had A big game they having multiple steals not game Saturday Ben Gamble caving busy. Oh Pedro Severino Bisharat over Bijl you agree with me. Yes okay while some some weird names Ben Campbell and Peter Severino Jonah The New York review a season as a as okay or disappointment. I think I'd graded as a disappointment right now. It's slight but I mean he is at least contributing attributing something to you. It's just that based on what you paid for. I think he he was sixty. Seventy eighty somewhere overall in the preseason he was I think he was top hundred but he does have thirteen home runs and twenty two steel so if he ends up like eighteen homers and thirty steals. I don't see how we can complain plane to sixty two batting average. He'll score eighty five runs. I think you've got exactly what you needed you. Maybe you thought you were getting forty steals but thirty steals and eighteen home runs. I mean that's really good. I think Jonathan V._R.'s exceeded expectations. Maybe maybe he's addicts but to your point I think he's still game actually yeah like the steals that he has right now. Fit into the context of the League stolen base production and the homers he has fit into the context of the League's power rise so I have a hard time really judging what this season is. I feel like it is a disappointment when I look at the twenty two stolen bases. He's the number twenty one hitter on the full season player writer. This is not a disappointment wow he's right next to Raleigh Blackman John Honor Bell Skills Environment. It's a steals environment. That's it. It's almost a top twenty player. I know but that's the steals environment that's the calculation. Four fans are saying that this twenty two steals as overrating him as an overall player. I don't think there's anything that can give a fair calculation to stolen base based on what the environment in baseball nowadays all right. That's fair now. Take a ride on the carousel more saves the rest of the season Taylor Rogers Sergio Sergio Romo both twins now I agree with that Taylor.

"Nine homers twenty two stolen bases. One hundred. Twelve RBI one hundred six runs per year. He averaged at one point he put up eight wins above replacement in two thousand seven and followed up the next year with seven. David Wright was on a hall of fame trajectory before injuries derailed his career. He's the greatest Mets position player of all time. Yeah, I don't know. I don't know that there's the arguing that I really don't. I know a lot of love. A lot. A lot of love gets thrown to of. Got wind my fucking lanky on his name right now. The fucking first baseman. Oh, through. Yeah. He's. Didn't he win. Yes, he did. Yeah, but he'd be a great met. Yeah, I mean he, yeah. No, I'm not saying it wasn't a great met, but I mean, is MVP was with cardinals. People forget. Yeah. Oh yeah. I'm whatever. Yeah, memories taking a little bit of a hit in the last five to ten minutes. Dave, Dave, David, right. The reason this do needs to be celebrated is because when young guys show up to a clubhouse and they're looking for a lighthouse meeting, they're looking for someone to show them the way David Wright as been that guy since he walked into that clubhouse, even as young, even as young himself and to go through a deal with the injuries that he's dealt with and the circumstances in which he has played his career under for him to still mean into still be the guy that he has been for the guys that have come through that door for him to be as professional as he's been in the Todd Frazier acquisition and like there's just not a better example of how to be a franchise guy going and. David Mann, just just thank you. Thank you because Jay being on your train tells us two things or at least confirms two things for us. One, you absolutely were the greatest met to strap it on and to Jay. Being the cardinal fan that he is. Each just a bandwagon bitch. That's that confirms that. That's that's grass. Sorry about that. J. interesting. David, right through age thirty season among third baseman to debut in the integration era. Okay. Okay. Eighth in wins above replacement, the only guys ahead of him. Eddie Mathews, Ron. Santo George, Brett, Mike Schmidt, Wade, Boggs buddy. Bell and Scott Rolen. Pretty good. Wow, not good. I mean is everyone here's favorite David Wright moment the game three World Series home run. I'm just fucking gladdy. Got that. You know if nothing else in post injuries in and all that. I'm just glad that he got that one moment where the Mets got to the World Series. It was the game that they won and he contributed in a big way. And then like that one Mets home when they talk about David Wright and the kids at never got to see him play. That's probably one of the first images that you're gonna see, Dave right home run the World Series. Let me ask you. This is David Wright. Does his experience of getting back on the field this final time? Is that more poignant than any other moment in his career because he didn't win a World Series. I mean, if if he fucking hits a home run or something like that. I mean, how are we not talking about one moment in baseball history? If he hits a Homer, you take him out of the game. Yeah, for sure. Yeah. Yeah. Homer, you'll let them go back on defense. Yeah, and you take him out of the game? Yeah, no. Just have just have everybody meeting, but home plate do one of those things where they lift the guy up and then just literally lift him into the Doug Rudy is just like literally just to have his teammates, carried him off the field. In the third inning of like. Three to one game or whatever, and they're playing the Marlins too. So you have to be some kind of assault and not groove him a first pitch fastball. Like the Marlins have nothing for nothing. So if you're not grooving him, fuck in four seamer right down the dick. You are an asshole, sir. The ID David. Yeah, I need. We all need El capitain drop in diesel. Yeah, victim Artigas another guy. There is bidding farewell to major league baseball.

"Three average. Eleven homers twenty two stolen base season. So good on him their their quality offense. While I'm on the reds mentioned, Phil Irvine, he's twenty five year old with a two seventy three forty six, four, four thirty, three slash line. I wonder. I wonder if there's going to be some. Changes in that outfield this they only moved on from divall which opened up a spot for for urban to play more regularly. But then of course, Winker could come back. They still Billy Hamilton. They have the aforementioned Scott Schober do they make some moves here that that opened things up to where it say, I don't know. It is urban place center who would be the center fielder if they moved. If they moved Hamilton, I don't know. Maybe they move Shabbir. I don't know there because they kind of go on different routes. The thing with Hamilton is that while his bat remains painfully awful, he's still a high quality center fielder. And so it kinda like have him there and center field and you'd want Winker. I don't know what it just be wing corner and shove kind of on the edges there and then in then urban makes good. Fourth outfield they're nothing crazy there that I'm drafting, but he has had a solid season. Last one actually know what two more two more because I did. I did want to mention Austin meadows who really acquitted himself well, this year, and he's a guy. I've made mentioned a trillion times on this show that I'm prospects are not my strongest suit, specially once you get kinda deeper than the AA really. I don't know the band with toys, keep up on the, but I've made a concerted effort to really stay stronger on them this year, but but meadows guy watched his whole kind of a through the minors. And this happens a lot. I think where guys are propped up and the old prospect fatigue sets in at a certain point, there is no set cut off. I don't always know when it kicks in, but I remember when he came up, nobody was really that excited. Like not not on there was like he was going for free or anything like that. But the hype that was there for Austin meadows, say a couple years ago did not match where it was when he actually came up this year and that kinda surprised me. I was like, well, when the still like an elite prospect and I know that he didn't have a great season last year. In fact, it was pretty bad. It was an eighty one game season. So is only about half a season. And the numbers weren't good, but this was still a guy that people are so excited about and he'd been hitting pretty well in the minors before his call up actually take that back. He hadn't been hitting that. So maybe that's where the excitement had drained by wonder if you know he'd been in the minors for so long that maybe it's just like, let me just grind through this and get up to the majors. I don't know, but I ended up picking them up anywhere I could and he really excelled in his major league sample to nine to three twenty seven four.

"I'm starting to find this now on the mix leagues that you need to turn over your roster much more aggressively than you might have in the past and VR falls into this. So I get it in our game. Maybe he doesn't really deserve the top hundred pick just because we can't trust them over one sixty two. But I think he is a very underrated player is, and I'm going to be drafting guys like him that at least I've dealt with the power potential as opposed to I'm done with Gordon, don't Billy Hamilton. I was a year ago, things stolen bases. Those royals are stealing basis every day with Mary fuel might get the forty steals. Now we're married people to top fifty player. Next. Kristen, I know you think it's crazy, but I think he is passed to be at the truth. Crazy. I think that'd be on board with them. Why wouldn't add Alberto modesty? If he finishes the way he's played the last couple of weeks, be a top hundred guy in our rankings. Next season. He looks like a fifteen forty still God better than VR. Now I know there's problems and I feel like we've talked about modesty on every show, but briefly to people that are just being in the first fantasy focus baseball on September. Thirteenth hurt your modesty has top twenty potential for power. Speed runs scored. I'm just I'm not on board with that at all. I just don't think the bats. They're look how look what he's doing. I I understand what he's doing, but you're buying into the smallest of samples and throughout his professional career, he's never shown any sign of this before I'd have to. I will dig deeply in the numbers on him. That's a guy who was on my list. He always always still base and his bat has always been in question. He does not have a good plate approach, at least as a pro. He is not over the full entirety of that. And I three I understand that. But I mean, I I'm not sure I buy in on what is effectively a two hundred one at that sample for him. And by the way it's a two eighty four batting average. It's not like that's an extraordinary number. He's not hitting eighty four next year fifty five next year. Yeah, he's hit next year. He first of all it's twenty two steals in fifty eight games sixty pace. I will say right now, modesty hits to fifty next year, but eighteen home runs forty, five steals you gotta have that guy. The steals, I get it. But if you're going to pan Dee Gordon and Billy Hamilton goes, powers is going to this guy's got fifteen to twenty homerun potential. I don't. I don't think I don't think he does. I think maybe he has ten overpower. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna quibble over ten to fifteen home runs, but I think you're you're touching the ceiling again and I don't think I don't think he's necessarily Richard. Here's the other thing I gotta ask about Albert Adele, Burto realm onto see junior, whatever. Isn't that you're still the manager. Does that matter? Yes, absolutely. You, you have no idea if the new guys in first of all, why would the new manager not let him run. That's ridiculous. This is an aggressive rate in this modern game and today. And if you bring in a guy who has a very different philosophy, it could shave a good five to ten steals off a player like this. And if the batting average comes into question, I don't know about the full drifts duck. I see your point here, but the ceiling, the ceiling is immense. The other Royal running a lot is Alex Gordon, but he's not doing much else a lot of good raise out there. How about g men Choy and for power, Joey, Wendell, doing everything. Willie Adamas malice Smith, you know, all his steals Kevin care Meyer. There's a lot of good players available in free agency in in this PIN leagues. I mean, I love this Ryan o'hearn of the royals big power. That's a thirty home run power guy or right now go get him boy like the power there as well..

"So we had to dip down to the nine range and tennis Peraza by the way, Tim Anderson out for the White Sox is hitting two forty fifteen homers twenty two steals fifty. Seven runs forty, seven rabies. It's that it's that power speed combo. That's really carrying me was seventeen. Fifteen last year fifteen twenty two already this year. So it's kind of out running that batting average similar to what Desmond's doing. So what do you think about Tim Anderson at shortstop unmown little bit concerned of what he's doing recently. Do you know how many stolen bases in the second half. Two one. He said two home runs one stolen basis into thirteen. So. I'm not necessarily saying that's who he is or anything like that. I'm a little concerned that all of a sudden he's really just stopped doing anything in that. Maybe this has been bullied by. I mean, he had a huge start to the season, no doubt and Tim Anderson was one of the hot tickets to begin the season for sure. Between April, he hit eleven home runs and stolen twelve basis. So he did a lot of that damage in the first two months. And it's been much quieter here since the end of may. I'm so I'm a little bit. I'm a little bit tempered. I think some people are just going to look at the overall stat line coming into next season and go, oh, this is this is who he is, and I just don't know that I'm ready to to quite say that. I wish it's hard because like I keep saying, I wish you'd walk more, but he is walking more. He's walking five and a half percent, which is almost. I'm fine with a five, five and a half percent walkway and wish you would strike out less really. Like I, I'm not too worried about walks. I'm not going to try to make somebody be something that they're not, and he's not going to be some big, walk guy, but then you gotta strike out was put the ball and playing gets more infield hits. Dude. You cannot a two eighty eight OBT as so gross. And so that's where I'm concerned with Tim Anderson, but he is twenty-five. We'll see it. There could be some development. It's a solid season. I'm going to be eager to see where he goes next year could see similar to what you're saying about profile where you're worried that the hype could could push up. I totally see that with Anderson. So we'll see how he finishes. I like the power speed skills there, but I need a little bit more in this lash line to feel comfortable with him, jump into the outfield and talk about whitmire field. He's our, he's our top ten guy. And then we have one for the top twenty because there wasn't really many other surprise. Whitman was the only real holy cow top ten in maybe he's not even a holy cow guy. I think more it's because it's on KC amd because he got off to a pretty bland start where people were like, see, I knew what Maryville wasn't good. And then he's been really solid since he's three hundred seven homers twenty-five heels fifty. Four runs thirty seven reviews. That's what mayor field with second and outfield eligibility with some of the depth in the middle infield positions that outfield eligibility might actually be better for mayor field this year after the big season last year where you buying in on mayor field. That'll I was kind of just playing draft by draft for the most part. There were some dress where I felt he was going to I in some. Draughts where I felt like who's a decent by deep sin option because people didn't believe so I wasn't hot or cold. I kind of wrote the fence a little bit on Mary. I wish I'd got more shares because he has been great this year. And if you look at his numbers since July first, he sitting three twenty six three eighty four seventy three with three home runs in nine stolen bases. We knew the power would tick back down a little bit. So I think if you expected to get another nineteen home runs from him, you reform yourself a little bit. But otherwise he's been great. And you know he's one of the few guys who's providing speed in average at the same time and he's getting on base at three sixty seven clip..

"Let's try to help teams out a little bit right it's hard out there for guys trying to replace injured bats and arms so if you've got a little bit more flexible obviously that really only applies to bats because you're moving guys around but though the worst thing is you know having to cut a talented player because because of like positional flexibility i mean that that's tougher i'm not say make it super easy or anything like that i'm just saying when it comes to that discussion i lean more liberal back to ramirez he is third and outfield for sure second base in most leaks and he's been beating now one of the things i was mentioning before the season started was i didn't really see much of a difference between him and and and francisco door his teammate and i understood of course y lin door would would go higher because he was shortstop and shortstop certainly has has more value i definitely get that but if you kinda look at at at what these to have been doing it i was talking fifteen and sixteen combined they're just really wasn't that much difference and then when you really honed in on on sixteen specifically they were i mean they were about daddy even just looking last year he got ramirez with eleven homers twenty two stolen bases three twelve batting average four run seventy six rupees rintanen door fifteen homers nineteen stolen bases 300 one average ninety nine runs seventy eight rabies so you know some smaller advantages some some advantages to lend nor for sure with that with the runs is the big difference that for the fifteen run gap is big eleven runs of batting average in insignificant though a on on over six hundred played appearances that's that's something there too and that goes in favor of ramirez but the point was was that skills wise everything they did as as you know some power quality speed top of the order guys who should accumulate good runs and rv is they look very similar to me and yet they were going several rounds of part and i am i think it's time for ramirez to get his do now.
