We're back with an all new "GREY GREY GREY! ... and JB" Podcast, where Grey again struts his stuff like he's the cock of the walk. On today's show we discuss the Chris Sale situation, Aroldis Chapman getting traded to the Cubs, and two huge prospects making their debuts on Monday night. Then we get into some flavor-of-the-week pitchers like Tyler Skaggs and Sean Manaea, as Grey and I get into a shouting match that makes his neighbors Mr. Heckles him. "You're disturbing my oboe practice!" We also hit on some hot sluggers like Ryan Schimpf, and run through some set-up guys who could be getting saves after the trade deadline. Here's the latest edition of the Razzball Pod, now with more swearing!
George Bissell and Mike Gianella of Baseball Prospectus discuss how fantasy owners should approach the major-league trade deadline, along with the fantasy impact of recent call-ups Alex Bregman, David Dahl, Tyler Skaggs and Joey Gallo. They also break down the Aroldis Chapman and Melvin Upton trades and speculate wildly on who will be traded in the next few days leading up to the trade deadline.
Host Vineet Barot chats with BP Milwaukee Editor Nicholas Zettel and writer Kyle Lesniewski about the 2016 Milwaukee Brewers. Is it considered a success? How did Craig Consell do and should we expect him to be extended? Should the Brewers trade or keep Ryan Braun?
With another pinch-hitter needed for the transient Carlos, Mark Grote from 670 The Score and Chicago Cubs pre- and post-game joins the rest of the team. Among the topics discussed, the differences between this Cubs front office and those of the past, Miguel Montero's spot on the postseason roster, and the playoff rotation. Mark even does his exceptional Pat Hughes impersonation!
Later, Ryan, Joel, and Isaac dive further into who they'd prefer to see the Cubs play in the NLDS. 60 Seconds with a Former Cub harkens us back to an experience Joel once had with Mark Grace, and the guys debate who might play members of the organization in a movie about the 2016 Cubs. Isaac finishes things off with his At-Bat of the Week and by declaring his love for Aaron Rodgers.
Scott and Connor discuss whether the Marlins should trade Fernando Rodney. With the Marlins thin on pitching, is there a free agent they should target? Two veteran scouts believe now is the time for the Marlins to trade Giancarlo Stanton. Is that the right move? One report notes the Marlins might be interested in Kenley Jansen or Aroldis Chapman. Would either of those names make sense for the Marlins?
With Carlos missing in action yet again, the gang turns to a veteran radio voice to pick up the slack: Matt Spiegel, of The Spiegel & Goff Show on 670 The Score. Isaac, Joel, and Ryan talk to Matt about Joe Maddon, the clubhouse vibes, Theo Epstein, and Matt's prediction for how this season will end.
Then, the guys beat the 'pitch usage' horse to death, they talk about what Jorge Soler can show down the stretch, and how the playoff roster might shake out. Joel harkens us back to the days of Ryan Theriot and Isaac gives us the At-Bat(s) of the week.
In Episode 14 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett dissect the tire fire that is the NL East Second Wild Card race. The Mets are still in it, we don't know how. But in the first half of the show we examine Cespedes' DL stint and what it might mean for the Mets playoff hopes and the Mets outfield alignment (and Cespedes' golf game). We also take a look at the fifth starter candidates with Logan Verrett potentially on the outs.
In the second half of the show we answer your e-mails about first base gloves and Japanese pro wrestling crowds, before Jarrett sidedrains the podcast into a long A-Rod chat.
In the third half of the show we talk Mets prospects and Jeffrey brings back the IFK Goteborg update, because if the pro wrestling chat hasn't scared you away, might as well roll out the soccer talk.
Normally by now on Amazin' Avenue Audio, we would have done a season review, an offseason preview, and some Rule 5 talk, but as you may have heard on podcasts like this one, the Mets spent all of October in the playoffs. So we have some catching up to do. First Jeffrey and Kate review the 2015 season one last time and discuss the Terry Collins extension. Next, Jeffrey and Brian look at some early roster moves and the Mets crop of free agents.Then, Jeffrey and Greg discuss Rule 5 protections and further 40-man roster machinations. Oh there's more, Jeffrey and Lukas preview the Mets offseason and discuss the *sigh* shortstop situation. Finally, Jeffrey and Milo answer your e-mails until Jeffrey finally has to cry 'uncle.'
DFSR's Doug Norrie and James Davis jump on the pod to talk a full Friday evening of baseball. From a cash perspective it sure seems like Max Scherzer is the clear play but guys like Chris Sale and Corey Kluber make for interesting GPP options on the strikeout upside.
Then of course there's a game in Coors with a crazy implied run total and Nolan Arenado leading the charge. Other decent matchups include the Red Sox, Mets and possibly even the Dodgers.
