Good morning my friend now, Lavelli, Neil third frequent contributor to the love governor for two plus decades covers the Minnesota twins, a major league baseball for the Star Tribune and Star Tribune dot com at Lavelle Neil via twitter. This pitcher richhill they the the twins seem very excited about him and good morning Lavelle. Yes good morning. Yes ritual. Yeah, he's a veteran guide. Late bloomer, you know kind of struggled early probably career, and then figure some things out, and is actually an effective guy. You know he doesn't keeping the Games, but you know five or six games. You know he could be your guy. Breaks. Ball and he has A. Good control. And his pitching acting high, he's got he's got. He's a he's got a great pitching. Mind to the point where in spring, training West Johnson was along him to go observe pitcher's throwing bullpen sessions and report back the West about what his observations were a lot mechanics how they were throwing everything, so he gain the trust of the coaching staff really early on just because of the great pitching mouth. And He's thrown to hitters. Twice now and you know looks, but he's a pretty good look much better. The second time out. And you know the one person who benefit from the shutdown with him because he wasn't supposed to be ready until late July and Guess what it's late July. come late July. He's available for he's going to be available for the entire sixty games. And probably he'll be a factor in bullpen, wrapped back and that gives them a veteran that give a left-hander which they don't have give him a battle tested guy pitching some big games for the dodgers, the breeze big to the world series twice, and you haven't won, but I think it's like a one point. Eight yard I think in three. Season starts or something like that or three works restart. So Yeah, he now he's. He's proven to be everything. They thought he was when he Stein was a free as a free agent. Squabble This richhill. What what kind of a pitcher is he? Is he like Karl Pavan no pitch to con-. Contact guy is the flame thrower Dizzy Neville. Let like what's his bet. He He's definitely he's not A. He's not a high strike out guy although he can't get a few strike out. he, he relies on precision This guy he's got a big ASS breaking ball. That's GonNa flummoxed guys, so he's going to get some some tappers in some swings and misses out of it in a decent fastball. So It's not gonNA. Like strike out. Twelve dies in like eight innings or something like that. No, no, he's not that type of guy, but you know you may get on the road where he strikes other guys here and there. but you know he How got the weird thing about richhill? And you hear it in here because there's no noise now going on workouts. But like he grunts after every pitch like he was like Serena Williams and so You hear like this running along with every pitch. During lied be more so than any other pitcher I've ever heard. So. I just like sting That's I guess that's the jam and and it worked for him, and he's been able to carve out a career delay credit and he's coming back from. Elbow Surgery. He didn't have Tommy John. Surgery, but like the alternative to Tommy John Surgery At the also had like A. one of those platelet injections. Into some some repair. That's not Tommy John like. And it was like him to come back and he's feeling good. He's throwing well and you know. He says he says the twins. You know really the lefty. He gives them that president in the rotation then. It could be. It could be a pretty good pickup. What what what led you to write? That fantastic Justin Moore no peace in the Star Tribune. Now I was, and it was a it was. One of those periods is a historical thing because on July seventh. Of Two thousand and ten. Just a more known tried to take out John McDonald's second base in Toronto and got his dog. and. No one knew how severe it was until. days weeks months went by, and he did not feel like this former so and. that was just intriguing part. Because at the time he was batting, three forty five eighteen homers. And over fifty RBI and it was. Exactly Eighty one games at the halfway point even. about that time he was in the middle of a monster seats, and you probably would have been in the running for MVP. He's felt He felt unstoppable. He thought that his experience and his skills were meshing at the right time. He finally get routine to prepare and everything's clicking and people saw that you know for the first half. Of that twenty ten season, and after the because cussin' just was a different player. He never was the guy he was before. They can cut him. And this happened before the focus on concussions in sports. And you know especially NFL C., t., and everything. But we know now how serious blows to the head can be and how they can derail careers. And even though more, no was able to come back and win batting title with the Colorado Rockies. I believe was twenty fourteen. he just said. I'm not the same guy I used to be. You know you got embarrassed box. And started wondering what if a pitch comes high type know? How do I react and once you have that doubt in your mind in the batter's box is doesn't make it hard. It's Elliot. And he just wasn't that that powerful. Threat that dangerous hitter in the box. That could just drive a ball.

And I don't think that is really I think what I think it's like, no we do what we do to try to live. Now. I mean, there was for the longest time defy and we talk about how to mandate that. We couldn't do anything outside of smart. I got I got in trouble by by one of the exact same. I did that legends of gaming because I didn't know I was on the cover of variety. And that's so son. Don't let me like crazy like we're able to do these things now and actually try things like the notion that like, oh, if Courtney goes and does a show it's going to be like the competition with small like, no that's not how the internet works. And there were these old exacts making these demands. And it's like, no if you go off and become a star on TV and you're still part of the sponge fan, that's all going to help each other.

Massaging fee liked those massages a lot. He's never had a. Yeah. No. The human body is a machine, and you have to know how the different cogs work in what outfit. Just shut up. All this is terrible. Yeah. But it smells like salami right now. What's the deal? I just like my morning salami sandwiches. That's weird. I don't miss your Sarai for a lot of mustard salami and a few onions. Yeah.

"That's but I mean, that's a huge. If if they had someone that good that could actually hold Kevin Durant. Maybe not in check. But could hold his home with rent. Hilariously day. Just traded one of their sinkhole centers for one of the clippers sinkhole small forwards in west Johnson. So they just made you just reference one positional whole someone that never filled that hole. Clipped, this Johnson commonality. Right. But that's how that's how much I like that team. Do they have hold outside of that? Yes. They're depth isn't always wonderful lot of times. It's not. You know, but mere Tisch's worked better there than I ever expected that he you know, that he'd be at that position. Davis is looked great. Obviously, drew holiday is still drew holiday. I I really love that team. And I kind of feel like if they if they had addressed or if they could address that position. That's how good I think they are. And really, I remember ESPN at some point asked me to work out, these hypothetical trades, which I I hate doing those because I'm so I don't think of trades. Well, I don't theorize trades. Very well. And so before I knew all the CBS roles. What was allowed what I suggested is take boogie sign them. And then trade him for a y. In trust. The fact that even though boogies had his moments in his episodes in this league that maybe, you know, pop they'll be desperate to fill that role with with another star that you know, has potential that hasn't been tapped in some way, and maybe this burst can take him. And then they don't feel as bad about losing. Obviously that you know, that didn't happen. It wasn't legal with the C bay roles. Anyway, you'd have to wait a certain amount of time before you could make a deal like that. It would have been I think Bobby Marxist told me his basically impossible, but if they could have put like a coup why there with that roster for the majority that roster to stay the same. Obviously if you plug a top five player in there. But even if you took someone that's above average at small were there. I would love that team. I would absolutely love that the most the most popular fake boogie train was signing trade was fraud porter which is a lesser version of what you're thinking about how good they'd be. If you had someone that you could plug their all the shooting that you'd have you'd have a plus defender there. I mean, I don't know even without that. They look really good so far. And I think that they're kind of picking up. Where they left off last year just dominating people. Yeah. I mean Davis is obviously incredible mirror teaches fit well there. He's gonna hit a shooting slump at some point. He's not gonna shoot nine thousand percent all season. I'll say this Solomon hill. Look good less than I did. And like he's not going to be the answer to the question that you just posed. But if they can get okay minutes out of him. That's helpful. You know, they'll get dairies Miller will do what he does which is take one dribble and shoot and and beyond the floor album was that they couldn't play there. Those guys long enough minutes in the playoffs to to capably guard Durant. I mean, they they played holiday on Durant for long stretches. It's like drew holiday. God bless him. He's probably I always have this rule that I I don't like star players like if I had to put together my team, I feel like it's too basic to say, I would take Westbrook. And I would take this person. I always, you know, and you you do this with your all-stars Zach Lowe all stars. You picked guys that aren't actual all-stars. I guess holidays been an all star once, but I would say like he's my favorite player in the league that isn't like a perennial Lord into my. My all-star conference multiplayer. He's been an all star point six seven times. I think every Eastern Conference appearance since two thousand should count for two thirds of all two-thirds of like real bad that one. And then they traded him traded him to the I want to say to the pelicans from the Sixers. But I mean, I remember the first time I I still remember the first time I watched holiday plan person..

"Down to fifteen players plus the two ways of by the day before the season. I think the deadline was like six eastern yesterday. So that's why these traits happened. They were up against the deadline and the clippers were another one west Johnson who was not in their plans. They have a ton of combo boards there. He signed an ill-fated full mid-level exception deal on a two plus one, which he basically probably should up to the to the exact moment that he signed it in the summer of two thousand sixteen than duckers basically stopped playing completely, actually thought maybe could contribute a little bit for them, but they had so much depth the deposition last year they didn't need him, but he actually might play a little bit for New Orleans and then ginseng. He actually makes less than Johnson. Hugh will be waived, but he gets the clips a little bit more breathing, run of the tax. Remember they will be paying the tax under no circumstances this year number one because they're not contender a number two because they'll be in the repeater tax and they wanna get out of it by being out of the tax retreat to seasons in a row. And then they also waved John Evans. This is one that we seen coming for while he was not effective last year at a really rough summer league, and we wondered, hey, what the hell they doing when they're matching an offer sheet untie walls, ironically enough from the pelicans of then made this deal to help them keep tie Wallace in this trade. So Taiwa will make the team that's good to see. And because I thought he was definitely better than a lot of these other guys that they add, including Johnson Evans. So the clip that they got the right fifteen guys on the roster now in good work to get there while also reducing the tax Bill at the same time and good job for the pelicans to get a guy who might actually play for them a little bit. We'll see kind of. Shape Johnson is in after you know, a basically at year on ice? Yeah, I think this is a good piece of business for both teams. The pelicans paid a little bit of extra money for a guy who has a chance of helping them and then gave away a guy who I know chance of helping them. And for the clippers wanna give orange Frank credit. They had this roster crunch and my expectation was that they would not cut in my opinion, the right three guys, let let them go and various forms, and those were Sam Dekker, John Evans and west Johnson, partially because those some of those guys had equity eater, like west John's was being paid a lot. Same decorative inquired into Chris Paul trade and they got rid of the right three guys. So I really happy that they that they made the right move there and got the right east join. Evans wasn't inspiring and also was basically replaced because they got superior players at the same position, young players, so they can. They don't even have to worry about the upside issue. So we'll see what happens with him. I mean, it will have an opportunity presumably to play overseas Julie, should he prefer that and we can move on to the unusual moves made by the Phoenix Suns. So the sons cut to roll Arthur who they had previously applied for a disabled player exception, which was super weird retouched by that in previous episode, it looks like that goes away because I believe the application has to be granted before you cut the guy and they also cut shack Harrison who expected to be their starting opening night point guard, which was dumbfounded. They also cut to redo. I thought, what good in some really, and they had to clear those spots because of a couple of moves. They many off season declare an extra spot because they sent him Okafor now. I guess they could kinda use Crawford a. Horsley Crawford was like, yeah, you know, I'm really waiting for the right situation as well. The noted on Twitter when the right situation didn't emerge just signed in the wrong situation in Phoenix, hey, might as well play. Although, you know, we'll see whether he's happier in Phoenix and he would have been any just opted into that player option, which would have paid him a close to five million bucks at Minnesota. Instead of the.

I believe he's not going to be on the pelicans anymore. He's been there for forty five years. A good move for the pelicans hell's going on. Alarmingly good move. I'm trying to say. I mean, I'm trying to see like the battle for the number one overall pick is right now. The giants are in the mix. The giants stink. They do like I kind of hope they do keep stinging just as. Saquon going to rush for fourteen hundred kit for twelve hundred, and it's like, man, you clearly that guy. I like, yeah, but the to fourteen like and you never take a running back for. I look forward to going back and forth this several times over the next few weeks. It's the, I don't know it. It's tough because it's like all these other teams I took running backs aren't supposed to be that bad. I mean, they weren't supposed to have those picks, or they had already gotten all their other guys, young and building so sense and the giants. I mean make no mistake about a lot of people arguing this, make no mistake about it. The. The giants thought they were winning loser will this year like they thought final piece. Right?.
