"Think it would be bad. I'm just trying to imagine, oh my God. Oh, I'm like sweating. Tried to play themselves into better playoff position in an ultimately played themselves out of playoff position. I just think that you never, you never want to employ a strategy where someone can look back in hindsight and be like they were too cute. You don't try to be cute. 'cause you might be too cute. And then right. Yeah. Yeah. Having a fit. Yeah. I think that also like baseball is less susceptible to tanking, at least the type that should be a is susceptible to for a few reasons like when it's just not as advantageous to get a high draft pick and MLB as it is in other leagues. But also, I think it's like harder to lose. It's purpose. Yeah. Once you've assembled your team, you can assemble a non competitive team, but it's harder to say, okay, given the players we have on hand, we're going to reduce our odds of winning today because you have a bigger team in their more players and what are you going to do like your entire lineup? NBA, you can sit like one star and significantly impair your odds, but in baseball, as we know, like having one or two superstars doesn't make you a great team and being down to start two doesn't make you a terrible team, so there's only so much you can do realistically without making it incredibly glaring that you're doing this. So between that and the fact that there's probably not going to be so huge a difference in the standings between the teams that are in the wild card position and the teams that are just out of it, maybe there's not that huge, maybe it's like more of a, this doesn't look good because it's not great to have a team that is not as good, be rewarded for not being as good, so that's not good. Just from a optics perspective. But maybe it's not as dangerous from a competitive integrity standpoint. No, you still shouldn't do it. It's just bad. It's just so bad thing to mess with it and just do your job. Work your head down. Go in some baseball games, play in October, and let me have a happy family text threat. That's all. I want. Yeah. And also, just wanted to briefly salute what Zach gallen is doing for the Diamondbacks. I almost caught myself when we were talking about Keiko and saying that he had played for a couple of bad teams well, arguably he's only played for one. Diamondbacks, not so bad. Now, in fact, they're half a game behind the Giants in the west. How about that? How about that? I guess says as much about the Giants as it does about the Diamondbacks. But they're only three games under 500 or four games at this point and a lot of that is because Zach Allen has a 41 and a third inning scoreless streak going. Spectacular. Yeah, so he's close to entering the top ten score of a streetwise and he has already tied the record for most scoreless starts in a row, so he has tied Don Drysdale in 68 oral hershiser 88 Zac cranky 2015 with 6 scoreless starts. Of course, he has pitched fewer innings than all of those guys over those starts and significantly fewer than Hershey's or drysdale, her shows are streak of course is the record of 59, and this will be fun to watch gallon chase this dense and borsky gives him about a 2% chance, according to his new fan grafts post on the subject, but everyone's talking about gallon, there's a fan grass post about gallon in a baseball perspective post about gallon and people have been expecting big things out of gown for a while, like he was good and then he got hurt. He had a stress fracture in his arm, right? And so he was not so effective last year, but now he's healthy. He is making some changes. He's maybe throwing some higher fastballs and working more secondary stuff in basically like every other picture, I guess, but he's been better and he's been just really great lately and has propelled the Diamondbacks to respectability, so Craig Calcutta raised a question in his newsletter. He said, if gallon does keep going and challenges her scoreless innings record, there's an argument to be made that it's more impressive for it being over more starts. I mean, the more starts you make, the greater the odds you show up one day and simply don't have it or that you'll face a team with their hitting shoes on, right? I guess I understand that perspective. I still think that probably going deeper into games is harder just because it requires greater durability. It requires you to face the same hitters, multiple times in the same game. So yeah, like you're rolling the dice, I guess a little bit that you won't have it one day, maybe, but also you're having an easier assignment in each given outing. So I think if anything I would go with gallons being a tad easier, but it's an impressive accomplishment, nonetheless. And yeah, it's happening when offense is down a little bit, but so did it when drysdale did this or when her scissor did this, like, as we talked about recently, often record or near record setting performances require the conditions to be right for that, which is what makes judge and what he's doing so impressive because the conditions aren't really ripe for it. But good job Zack gallon in the Diamondbacks have been a lot more watchable lately in part because of him. Yeah, I mean, I have been to, so I was present for his start against nola when the Phillies came through, and then I was just at the ballpark to watch burns versus Bumgarner, which went the brewer's way, does not involve Zach Allen, importantly, but not because bunga earner was particularly bad, which is its own interesting, but a business. But there's just like, there are a lot of people at D back games, and they are excited about the D backs. And it's pretty cool. You know? Like, there have been stretches where that is not true. I remember, I remember in early 2021, I went to a Diamondbacks game and I think I had had, I think I had had one of my vaccine shots, but not both. And so I won, and I was like, oh, is this a bad idea? And then I was like, oh no, I'm very socially distanced. This is in fact fine, 'cause you know, it was a warm enough day that they had the roof closed because they wanted the air on. And I was like, it's still a big space, but I don't know. Is this the right thing? And then as I know it's, it's fine. And that hasn't been the experience lately. People are there and they're excited and, you know, you got gallon doing what he's doing and you have some of the young guys coming up and it's cool. It's nice to be there and see the corner start to see them starting to turn the corner, you know? It's the difference between groaning and respectable baseball. That's pretty fun. Yeah. The Diamondbacks headlines are looking up lately and last thing is that Joe Maddon former angels manager was on Jason stark's podcast starkville with Doug glanville and he had some things to say about analytics and managers, perhaps not surprising things he is maybe said some somewhat similar things since his dismissal from the angels, but he is really harping on this. He basically thinks that analytics have been taken too far and teams implementation of them have gone too far. And it's somewhat notable, I think, when he says it just because he was such a standard bearer for more progressive managers who were incorporating front office input when he was with the rays or even earlier in his time with the cubs and things have changed and he has not changed along with them and he thinks that they've changed for the worst and maybe he makes some valid points here.

Are you getting more and more comfortable with us. We are trying to make that a possibility. Just because of the way he's sweating about all year he's just being a catcher and and Joey's playing every day so trying to make it possible for him to either start games or just be able to come into games and stay out there. We haven't done it yet. But i would say we're getting closer to To that and if if nothing else i wanted to be we're going to have to do it for first time at some point and i just wanted to be a possibility.

So there's david bell from earlier by the way wade miley is going to start game one for the reds tomorrow sunny gray game two one ten is the first game of the doubleheader and six forty so obviously no baseball tonight tomorrow has just a one sort of singular day scenario for the reds has a chance to be a pretty monumental day they have a chance to gain two games in one day against the cardinals and i know they would have had a chance to gain two games of the next two days but still after losing last night two and a half two and a half back or two and a half up on saint louis padres winters. Last night we'll be scoreboard watching and paying attention to that game this evening as they play game. Two of that set blake snell on the mound for san diego against zack gallon.

"You know it's like there's there's nothing wrong with that the even the royals obviously they would want him to become a starter but they would probably be happy that they would at least get that. If that's kind of the floor type deal you know. I mean i think when you take a guy in the first round of its rafter. Getting relief floor my. That's i think you are hoping that. At least the floor because it punny easy to get just a busts so it's like guaranteed a ten year pro in the pen not that it would be all ten years with them. I think that's all right. But i didn't think that i didn't know that either. The outlook that some of the prospect folks had on co are. We know that he was in the minors killing it. You'll excellent and so you know there's nothing to draw from this. I start one way or the other. Frankly if he had had five quality innings there wouldn't have been too much to draw from it. But it's especially so when it's thirty nine inning. Dutt or thirty nine pinch done. That was clearly overtaken by nerve so said time with our. Let's see what happens this weekend. And we can bid accordingly Let's get to this breaking news here jack. Flaherty is going to be out to the all star break. At least with this with this oblique issue that he has. That's that's that's tough. That's a tough one there That's really gonna hurt the cards and that's gonna hurt fantasy folks here obvious question. Does he become at all cut or does he prioritize over. You know other a lot of other injured guys where you're finagling other guys and i maybe should come up with some examples of like. Who would you keep on your. I l. hammer him. But what do you think about flare now being out this song while up some other names to compare with for holding onto yeah. I don't think you can cut clarity. He was just too good prior to the injury in just took him to. I and i mean yeah. I just i. I can't think of a scenario in which i would cut him. I i really can't either especially with a lot of guys coming back like soto and yellow chair backs backs you only had to. I l spots. You'd put those to win and keep flaring the on a like so. Many other guys are coming back that it is tough to even concoct a scenario. Here you know if you have trout seager flare any. And i don't know police ac. Please tell you much much easier. So yeah i think no matter what. I'm sure there's one unique out there where somebody just has a devastation. But you gotta figure out a way to keep him and if that includes just cutting some solid player that you were hoping that you can hold onto. I think you have to do it. Because that's that's a month it's not. It's not good for flaherty. You're not about that. But you'd be a lot more unhappy if you gave your league a an ace for the second half of the season. Yeah absolutely. he's just gotta figure it out. It's a huge bummer. I think the one league earn two leagues ones dynasty league. Where i've been trying to get matt thompson to agree to trade him or something and now i'm pissed on. We're not talking anymore in the is cardinals. Fan by the way yeah and And then the other league It was with shelly Are tag team league. Where are our pocket. Aces were Were jack clarity. And zack gallon. So we soto clarity gal and have a really really good team behind that but it i. I don't know that it's going to work at home. That's painful man. That's really really painful. When you start off like that to feel like. I mean it's a great start on paper. And that's saying holy smokes. We are in a great position we got arguably the best hitter in baseball and two great pitchers and then soda struggles and then. The two pitchers find themselves on the i l. for extended periods of time. So again do everything. Can't hold flare andy and that includes cutting a lot of guys including these these upcoming guys here pretty easily testing here sent back down now your inclination might be the thing that this is nice but i promise you. It's not. he had sixty nine Upon his return from aaa and then found himself in a bit of tune now. He's backed down. Do we have to fundamentally. Change our expectations of casting here. At this point i think so because i mean even when we were thinking he was kind of locked in top ten second baseman i think part of the thinking was yeah. He's gonna have ups and downs because the profile you know isn't a very good approach. But he's locked in right. There's no way the brewers would like give away his playing time much less send out analysis him down twice. Yeah dude like i agree you figure okay. There could be some pain with the batting average. But you're going to volume your way to enough power and some chip in steals. And you know this is not the thing that i was correct or then i called it to this degree but i was nervous on here but again i was still there with like okay. He will meander his way to mid twenties homers and a handful of steals probably in the double digit range if he ran And at least upwards of eight nine and here you are now with the homer a steal a one thirty average for one hundred twenty two appearances and cut. I think he's got across all formats absolutely. Yeah i don't even think it's a question at this point with fifteen teams. He cut him. He's got to get right and then this becomes a bigger issue with his overall outlook. Just because you're talking about a guy who At second base the bat was carrying him because his defense was never good now. You're talking about him at first base where the bat has to be there. He's listed six feet which means there's no chance that he is nobody's just expe- you're lying if you say you are. He's clearly five ten so and there is a thing about the profile first basement being bigger not so much for the power output but for the position of being able to make the maneuvers of of catching the the different throws from guys. So is his future in doubt in terms of being a full-time player. I think at this point at ashby right scary. I think he is right. I mean obviously. He's still young enough. He's going to be twenty five here in like Two months or something aetna. You know. I'm not given up on him completely but right. Now you're looking at him as one of those under a wilmer flores types. Oh yeah i think. That's that's where you're at within with with worst defensibility so like it'll be even harder for him to stick lineup. Yup i think that's a good way to put it and It's it's tough from far. He's fallen because he had that. Nineteen homer nine steel. Eighty four game run to start his career back in nineteen within three. Oh three average and it looked like here. We go man. The average might come down because the babington strikeout rate well the average plummeted and just can't sustain everything else he just he just swings and misses too much and it's pretty clear the way he works with here to because when he makes contact the absolutely brutalizes.
