"I will one of the biggest bike trout. Backers and fantasy that you can find. I went trade turner here. Because i fear being stuck in the cold at the middle infield spots and in terms of stolen bases and i decided that i would be more comfortable trying to fill power auto week in week out matchup spaces in the later rounds and it was as simple as that i think trai turner is just as good as as my chinese the top of that next year there. You know we'll see if it pans out. I'm a little bit disappointed with what i got in round two. I'll be honest with you. If i'd known he'd be air. I might have gone trout in the first round. Took manny machado around to the pick. Afro took max scherzer an at about vermont. Ac- went to pick after you took machado which is interesting. It's early from from modesty but then again stolen bases. It's hard to get them in a league. Like this and usable stolen bases on base is not a category some honesty as value. That that way. So you're picking you middle infield early. Trai turner manny machado ozzy. Albee's nothing wrong with that three. You went josh hader around four. And you've been saying all along that you know you want one of the top saves guys. I've actually putting saves so that's a very different style. You and i are playing here. I feel like in a fifteen team lead. You can't punsalan get away with it and you took hater around four four like some really good players. Yeah i would lean more towards you can't fill saves later in a league like this because you have no option for fab. So you can't chase saves. During the season they must come from the roster. You drafted and i am finding especially in the stage that we're at now that the perspective closers or the next in lines are being aggressively drafted. You could go that route. I've taken a couple of myself. But i i wanted to get you. I wanted to go very clear looking to is. I'm going to go with a mix and match pitching staff. I decided when. I didn't get an ace after all those. When you mentioned you took max scherzer. I decided i'm going to have to just mix and match. I've never had a problem in this league. Finding pitching lineup. For a week. I have on offense. See i everything you just said about relief pitching. I feel the exact opposite way. If i can get utah. Tanna rainy in like round thirty. Well i'd much rather do that. Take brad handed around ten or wherever he went. I mean i think they're going to get the same amount of say. I'll take some shots. I mean nobody. Wanted stephan. Christ in of arizona got him around twenty so he might end up with as many saves as guys. It went ten rounds earlier. You took nelson lament again. Basically you're saying all right. I'm in your has what you're saying. So you limit. And with the next pick i took lance lynn and then when stephen strasburg that makes no sense interesting how like i'll defend lameta my question about this a lot. I recognize the risk. We do not know enough about him right now. So i must rank and based on my confidence that he will give you a decent number of starts but i need high impact innings. And that's all it is on the pitching side from my strategy here is based on. I must maximize my lineups each week. So you took salvador perez in round six which is really pick ninety and forty picks later guy yes monte grondahl. I like my side of that to wait. You know forty picks. Actually it's like seventy picks later that works for me. Yep i'm not. I got just as good a catcher and and we got some. I took david price. Joe muss grove. We consecutive picks. That's really interesting to me like my my staff is older. It's sure lynn grinky price. And then i took some kids later. Pearson jameson tone. But i took some older pitchers early on and you've got lament and paddock and musk grove. And then you took kluber fit that he would have fit better my team but is there. There's there's obviously more risk taking thirty. Something pitchers like i am. But i also felt like they were undervalued in this strap passing on these older pitchers because they assume they're going to get hurt. Lansley doesn't get hurt. That cranky doesn't get hurt. Dave wasn't hurt. Landing was one. I gave a very serious look at when i took lament. That would have been my alternate pick there now. I gotta note here because he brought this up. We're picking back to back. You are killing me in the even rounds yordan alvarez alvarez. I'm all all day on him. In round six of fifteen draft and then for for. I think it was four in a row. You took didi gregorious. Laid to rest jameson. Mitch haniger all four those those crush me. That was exactly what. I was taking with the next pick. I love where we're going with the values on hannigan tone lot of upside. You didn't spend very much in order to get them layered. Taveras would have given me the balance. That i'm looking for my offense. That was another good pick. The more i look at him the more i think there's there's good value. Here's a fourteenth rounder and didi gregorius. Who just signed. I mean gregorious. By the way there's a misconception about eighty gregorious we all think of him as a big poll power swing and miss kind of guy. now he's a contact guy doesn't strike out and it's pretty safe power and now he's going back to philadelphia and by the way liotta. There's i was trying to think of guys who could steal thirty bases this year. After like the top hundred picks he was the only guy on my list like yes. They hit better. He's young. you didn't hit very well in his rookie season but he can still basis so hard enough of that. let's get to what the phillies did were regardless. His back and jt real muto is back and they basically bring back the exact same lineup that they had last season and it was a it was a good lineup. They scored a lot of runs and grigory player. That's a twenty five homers seventy five shortstop who i think is a little underrated in-draughts general in espn's rankings. I mean he's not a top player but he should be going in like around fifteen and realmuto top catcher and he goes back to a place. He's comfortable it's well. He'll hit high in the lineup. Your thoughts on what. The phillies did all right. So after my thoughts. I want your take on the earliest. You'd go for jt remote to on a standard espn league. I i looked realmuto very closely before this one and i see a lot of positive hard contact metrics that make him very attractive compared to the rest of the field. So you know. I'm still still all in is a A as first of all the number one the catcher but second of all a guy who probably should be thought about once you get to the fiftieth picking your standard. espn draft..

"And you know the thing with the US is we travel with so many fans in every home game, hat, sorry, every game as felt like a home game for the United States and in Ron's and lahar, which is where their last game was even in Paris, they had twenty thousand strong they've been taking over stadium. So this'll be the first time that obviously, I think, in Paris, and they're playing the host country, it's going to be a pro France crowd, and that's gonna play part in the country. Here is so excited about their team their numbers. They've getting ten million watching their first game. They've, they've been drawing more fans than they ever had have of course, for their team. So they're entirely enthusiastic about knocking off the defending World Cup champions as everyone always is hard. So, so we'll get you oughta here on this given the fact that it is in Paris, given the fact that your. Apprehensions about the goalie of not necessarily been allayed given all of that stuff which way are you leaning in this particular game? Come on. Come on. Yeah. We go. All that they're still going to win. And that's the thing I love about this group. Honestly, is this is a team and you can hear it when they talk they live for these moments you have veterans on this team and Megara piano, Tobin heath, and Alex Morgan, you go down the list. Alley Krieger, and these players are saying, oh my gosh. This is the moment you dream about you want the host in the quarterfinal game against France in Paris on a Friday night. And so I love that they're willing to embrace that pressure, and I think they're going to do well under that pressure. So I'm taking the United States of America. It's official so. Appreciate it. All right, guys. Thanks a steak one last break. But still to come catcher. Russell Martin pitches. Second one two three inning. Is he for real?

Still playing. Yeah. People have twenty second birthday Yordan Alvarez Alvarez a rookie outfielder for the Houston Astro Ria's played in fourteen games already has seven home runs and eighteen RBI which is what we call on pace for Cooperstown, he doesn't just hit home runs hit some to your home. They go four hundred and fifty fees straight scouting. Tony. You've got a great team. You can add this kind of talent this kind of back to your lineup this scary again. They're really really not. So happy aaniversary to Kwami Brown, and Anthony Bennett on this day in two thousand one and two thousand thirteen respectively Brown invented with a number on overall picks in the NBA draft round with chosen by Michael Jordan, Jordan briefly ran the Washington Wizards stay league for twelve seasons. Never had any impact to and selected him out of a Georgia high school Bennett was the first pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers out of UNLV, and he did nothing who's on the league and four just how many. Scored per game. Then it's probably the worst number one ever Brown. I would think top six eight probably all those clips with Jordan is trying to splaine to him, a, you want all these kids in the NBA. You don't want always arguing they should be. They should be in college. I mean trails Giancarlo Stanton. The Yankee slugger is back on the injured list with a sprained right? Need standings played in only nine games this season? Yankee GM Brian Cashman does not expect him back until August while the Yankees at home runs in every game. Anyway. They're killing the ball, their first place in the AL by seven games tooth is they don't need Stanton now. But they couldn't. Who else you're going to need down the line, of course? In The a big big reddish. reddish here, we've still at the Celtics are hiring Carol off as an assistant coach thoughts.
