Speaker 0 00:00:00 What is going on everybody? John and Pehi, with James Rodney, welcoming to the Better Baseball. Mlb. D f S Playbook, podcast, and livestream recording here for Friday's 12. Game main slate. James, just a small slate there on Thursday, kicking us off for a big time. Weekend ahead for baseball.
Speaker 1 00:00:17 John, happy Friday. Uh, big time Friday here. Um, just wrapping up the Fantasy Alarm and Better Sports. Best Ball Invitational, uh, on both networks. If you missed it, you could go to fantasy alarm.com, YouTube, or, uh, the Better Sports YouTube, whatever, you know, YouTube, you Yeah, it both. Yeah, check it all out. Um, now onto baseball again after Thursday. Slate. Um, yeah, I mean, no Chorus Field. That's the first, uh, large omission that I'm very excited for. Um, 12 games, you know, usually a little bigger than we like, but, uh, all good nonetheless, and solid pitching, including Red Sox. Great. James Paxton taking the mound. Um,
Speaker 0 00:01:01 Yeah, Nick Veta moved to the Bull Pad officially today.
Speaker 1 00:01:05 Uh, but some good offenses, nonetheless. Some, some good game environments, and I'm ready to get into it.
Speaker 0 00:01:10 Yeah, so let's, uh, let's just do it. Uh, James, uh, anything available for us right now with Vegas totals?
Speaker 1 00:01:17 Yeah, um, currently we have a few teams that are big favorites, including the Houston Astros, sending Brandon Bak to the Mound, minus two 50, uh, at home against Ken Walchuk and the Oakland Athletics, minus two 15 for Martin Perez and the Texas Rangers hosting the Colorado Rockies, uh, plus 180 5 and Tampa Bay. They're not on the main slate. They're a six 40. They have a six 40 game. So yeah, those are the only two, like notable money lines. Let's see, in terms of over unders, nothing of note, uh, other than Toronto and Baltimore, nine and a half, Kyle Gibson versus Se Kaci. Um, that's the biggest over under we have on the board. So, uh, nothing really of note. Copic cranky and White Sox. Royals, that's nine. Uh, Dodgers Cardinals, that's nine, but nothing, uh, bigger than those. Yeah, sure.
Speaker 0 00:02:19 All right, let's get into it then. Pitching 12 games, lot of options here and, uh, you know, a decent mix of good and bad. I, I, I would say based off what we have here on the board, uh, Joe Ryan is your top price pitcher at ten three against the Angels, Sandy Alcan, Tara going into San Francisco, $9,800. Bryce Miller, who's been unbelievable since being called up by Seattle. He's $9,400 against Atlanta. Bryce Elder going the other side of that matchup at $9,200. Are your top four price starters on the slate? Yeah,
Speaker 1 00:02:50 I mean, Joe Ryan continues to be amazing. Um, pretty much every time out coming off six scoreless, 10 strikeouts against the Cubs. Uh, third time this year he's gone for double digit strikeouts. So getting to Joe Ryan, no issue there. Um, sand Contreras obviously been a little disappointing, I would say coming off like a Cy Young to this version of himself is a little bit unlucky. You know, the strikeouts have continued to be there, even in games. He struggled seven and two thirds, but six earned, yeah, nine strikeouts. You, you and I have mentioned this a couple times, like even though it's six earned, at least I know playing Sandy there is some type of floor, given that he had gave up six earned and still got a 17 fantasy points, like that's pretty insane. So I'm okay getting there. San Francisco continues to be good to to everything you've said all year, like against right-handed pitching, so that's obviously concerning. You know, Bryce Miller has been great, has allowed one earned run in three starts. I don't know if this is the spot I am, you know, I expect it to continue. Not, not that I think Atlanta's just gonna run all over 'em, but Good. Hasn't
Speaker 0 00:04:02 Cracked, uh, 85 pitches yet either. So
Speaker 1 00:04:05 Hasn't cracked 85 pitches, uh, one walk. Obviously Atlanta is a, just like a tougher offense than Detroit and Houston and Oakland. So like, you know, I don't know if this is a spot I'm gonna get to Miller. This would be a spot I think I get to Elder though, just like need to get in deeper into games more consistently. Five and five and one thirds innings the last two starts is not great when you're paying. Love
Speaker 0 00:04:31 The ground ball outs though.
Speaker 1 00:04:32 Yeah. Love the ground ball outs. Right. Um, and the strikeouts are decent. They've, you know, mostly been six or more for a large part of the year and Seattle's a team that strikes out a lot and just hasn't been a good offense against ready to pitching. So, um, I would say Joe Ryan and Elder are probably my two favorite. Alcon Tara and is in tournaments, and I just don't have much interest in Bryce Miller.
Speaker 0 00:04:53 Yeah, that's fine by me. Uh, tear down Golin 89 Stroman against Philly, $8,800 there. Um, Blake Snells, Boston Paxton against San Diego, you know, in this eight k range, what's the, what's the name sticking out to you
Speaker 1 00:05:09 In the eight K range? Um, maybe Snell question mark, but Boston's has been so good. Um, the only reason I say Snell is because Boston is a team with so many lefties. Um, what's, what are there, there's still eighth in op p s so like still ninth in o p s, so yeah, in Oakland. That's hilarious. Um, so like, it's still a very good offense, but, um, they're slightly worse against lefties and we finally get them away from, uh, Fenway Park, maybe even Paxton coming off nine strikeouts in his debut. Sure. San Diego. We've talked about it a lot this year. Just, they just haven't been good. They're 13th and o p s against lefties. That's fine. You know, they have a decent iso That's fine. They don't really strike out all that much. Um, but Paxton is an elite strikeout arm when he's going good.
Speaker 1 00:06:08 Those two probably do it for me. I don't like, we don't wanna play Kaci against the Orioles. I know. I mean, he's coming off, there's two of his last three starts. There's been regression from Kochi. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, especially in the Power department. Stroman has a pretty tough matchup, uh, against Philly and he hasn't looked as good as he did earlier in the year. I don't know. I I guess it's just, and, and I guess we'll see what, I mean, Caressa only threw 52 pitches in his last rehab start, so that would be the answer given what Cleveland has been setting out there. But I don't have any confidence that Kaci is gonna throw. I mean, how, how many innings is he even gonna throw, you know? Yeah,
Speaker 0 00:06:54 No, I hear you. I, I agree with you. And it's not really like our favorite spot anyways, so, right. Um, I, I'm with you there. Uh, next tier down again, we got, uh, Reid Dens against Minnesota. Martin Perez against Colorado. Copa gets kc Gibson gets Toronto, Boyd gets Washington there and the seven K tier, uh, for me, I, I, I, again, I just go with Martin Perez. Uh, I know the last couple stocks for him, pretty tough, but Colorado on the road, a lefty on the mound. Um, I don't know, I don't, I don't mind Perez in the mid tier range here. He is cheaper than he is, been in a little bit, so
Speaker 1 00:07:31 He's cheaper cuz he is been bad, you know? Um, I don't know. Like we've seen this song and dance two starts in a row. He is been a big favorite and he just hasn't been good. I, it's just like, I
Speaker 0 00:07:44 Think, well I think we could also kind of admit a little bit that, you know, the Angels obviously he
Speaker 1 00:07:49 Left as well. Yeah,
Speaker 0 00:07:50 He left as well. And then Oakland's has started to come alive. I mean three homers in that game allowed by him against Oakland. So, um, I mean, yeah, anytime you get Colorado outta Coors it feels like you're generally in a, in a better spot. But I I I see your point given recent form, I'm just kind of playing maybe some of the, the matchup numbers there.
Speaker 1 00:08:09 Yeah. And it's fair Oakland eighth in o p s against left-handed pitching. Like that's good. That's literally top 10 in the league. You know, anytime you're top 10 in the league, you're doing something right. So, um, yeah, I don't hate it. Um, I, same thing can be said about Reed DERs. We know the twins have a lot of lefties in their lineup. He's been pretty decent this year. Uh, solid prospect coming off back to back starts of like three earned or less seven strikeouts. He had a lot of strikeouts going into that last start. Yeah. And then just,
Speaker 0 00:08:41 And then Cleveland doesn't strike out, so,
Speaker 1 00:08:43 And then Cleveland doesn't strike out so, um, Minnesota against left-handed pitching this year, their 28th and ops, they have a 27.6% K rate. That's the second highest mark in the league. I know we just did this song and dance with Kershaw. Um, but I will go back to well with DeMars then it's probably below seven K is probably the next Oh
Speaker 0 00:09:13 Yeah, I mean like, yeah, I mean Irvin here against Detroit had a, a good start against San Francisco, got lit up a little bit by uh, the Mets, but still had six K. He's 6,700. We talk a lot about the Dodgers struggles hitting left-handed pitching. I don't think we wanna go. Steven Matt's here. <laugh>, you know, there's not really a lot in this low range. You're just kind of throwing darts. So, uh, they got Carl Kaufman coming up here. Looks like he's making his debut against the Rangers for the, uh, the Rockies. Uh, but he had a 7 78 era r a at aaa. So can't imagine that that plan out too well for him.
Speaker 1 00:09:52 No, I think if I were to take shots, uh, it would be Ranger Suarez if we got a pitch count update on what it would be. Um, yes, the Cubs have been a, a good offense against left-handed pitching, but they're striking out nearly 25% of the time. Seventh highest mark in baseball. So Ranger Suarez is a good pitcher. I would get there and I would honestly take a look at Brandon Bak as well. Biggest favorite on the board, minus 2 25 at home against Oakland. Yes, he had no strikeouts against Seattle, but he's had 19 ground ball outs in his last two starts. He has a six strikeout outing against San Francisco. I could see myself getting to B L A C like we've seen in the three outings. He's pitched in 75, 87, 80 pitches at 6,200. If he were to get extended to 90 pitches here, I could see a scenario where he gets you five innings, five strikeouts and a win against Oakland at 6,200. If he gets you 16, 17, 18 fantasy points in that range, you're in driver's seat. So I think I would get to some, um, some B a C and depending on what Ranger Sws pitch count gets to. Okay, I would go
Speaker 0 00:11:03 There. Uh, let's go on over to catcher. Uh, a lot of options here at the top, will Smith gets a lefty and Matt Ruman gets a lefty. Kaci, uh, we, we've seen obviously recent power surges from Cal Rally. Uh, you know, Salvi Perez, Elis Diaz has a lefty spot here. So a lot of these guys, it's top range good matchups for them.
Speaker 1 00:11:25 Yeah. And I would be interested in almost all of them. Um, I think Will Smith is better against lefties than his numbers have suggested. Just like the Dodgers in general. I guess that could just be a statement about the Dodgers in general. Like they're just a better team overall than the numbers suggest. So, um, I like Will Smith if you're spinning up, Steven Matts has been really bad this year. Um, things seemingly aren't getting much better for him. So I could get to Will Smith Ruman as we previewed on Thursday. Slate. His numbers against lefties are very good this year. Probably not gonna get to Sean Murphy. That might be the exclusion of this tier. Um, I real MUTOs been really, really good. So, you know, if you wanna get there, just 5k for a guy with three home runs on the year, I don't know, hasn't had any home runs in 10 years. You wanna go
Speaker 0 00:12:24 Ru Muto again, scrolling now? I mean,
Speaker 1 00:12:27 No, I, so I'm saying like he's just been, I'm just more so acknowledging that he, he's been really good than
Speaker 0 00:12:33 Anything else. Sure. I just think like, that's just not a matchup I'm looking to target. So
Speaker 1 00:12:38 Yeah, I mean Sherman has to be, Sherman has definitely been worse lately. Like he has not been the same guy that he was earlier in the year for in that sense. I don't disagree with what you said though. Like, it's not me, I'm just making a case for it. Not that I like am, I mean I'd rather play Will Smith. I'd rather play Ruman truthfully. I'd rather just play Sal against Copak and I'd rather just play Elis d if we're talking about like guys over 4k. Um, so like Ramu, it's not like real Muto is the guy for me. If you're being different, like I, it's not,
Speaker 0 00:13:11 Um, I mean Jonah Heim here against Kaufman. I mean 3,900 Matt feels like an absolute lock play.
Speaker 1 00:13:18 Smash. Yes,
Speaker 0 00:13:19 Smash. Um, Kyber gets the lefty match up here. Um, maybe that's like it unless we gets, until he get some actual lineups out here. Um, you know, Connor Wong gets the lefty in him. Jan Gomes against Ranger Suarez. I know you like Ranger Suge, but ya Gom just keeps hitting home runs against South Bozman. So
Speaker 1 00:13:41 Yeah, I mean, I would definitely get there for like Eve, you know, I like Ranger Suarez, but I I wasn't also sold on Ranger Suarez either. Um, I would take a shot on either Mets catcher, whether it's Michael Perez or whether it's um, Francisco Alvarez, whichever guy in the lineup. I I would play one of those two guys.
Speaker 0 00:14:01 Uh, first base guys are very expensive at the top there. OTs 63 Homer today on Thursday. Uh, gold, Schmidt, Alonzo, Olson, Freeman all up there. Uh, do you target anybody in this range or do you look down to, like I mentioned Mount Castle at 48 and, and more to the mid-tier?
Speaker 1 00:14:24 So I definitely think Alonzo is in play, uh, homers on Wednesday and Thursday or Tuesday and Wednesday. Um, so I could get to Alonzo against Quantro. We know Quantro is a guy who pitches to contact first. Like he does not miss bats very often. So, um, I'm trying to look at the splits here. Quantro has been way worse against Rites too, at least in the average department. So I could get to Alonzo. Um, but I really like Ryan Mountcastle 48. That feels like the first spot I'd really, really take a look at. Uh, just given the power that Kaci serves up and the power that Mount Castle has as well,
Speaker 0 00:15:09 Um, in the metier, like you mentioned, they're already Mount Castle, but I mean at some point Nathaniel, Lowe's gonna come through for us. Why not against a, a guy 25 years old and an eight era r a making his debut, right?
Speaker 1 00:15:24 How do guys like that get to like, pitch themselves? Like
Speaker 0 00:15:28 Other guys they don't wanna like waste their options on, I'm assuming. And, and then <laugh>, there's a guy that can just get called up and sent down without any impact. That's, that's the only thing I can think of.
Speaker 1 00:15:39 Um, well, yeah, Nathaniel, Lowe's gonna, I mean the Rangers, it's a 10 game or it's a 12 game slate. So like there's gonna be some solid ownership distribution. Like you're not gonna run into like too many chalky offenses, but I suspect that Texas is right now,
Speaker 0 00:15:57 Uh, under 4k man, PA's back down to $3,600, uh,
Speaker 1 00:16:02 For
Speaker 0 00:16:03 No reason. Justin Turner's coming off of, uh, another home run game for him, back to back games and home runs for Turner. Uh, he's got the Blake Snell matchup here. LaMonte Wade, I know it's Sandy Alcon Tire, but what are we talking about, right? Alcon Tire is giving up runs and home runs and things like that. So, uh, maybe Wade not as, uh, unappealing as maybe he would've been in years past. Uh, Pratto at $3,100 down here with dual eligibility. Some, some pretty good value at first base.
Speaker 1 00:16:30 Yeah, some pretty good value. Um, and even further down too, like Mark Vitos $2,500, uh,
Speaker 0 00:16:39 Omar and his debut is,
Speaker 1 00:16:42 And then, and then book show said, you know what, take
Speaker 0 00:16:44 A day.
Speaker 1 00:16:45 Let's take a take a day off. Think about your, think about how good it felt to be good and, and help us win a game. And, uh, we don't wanna
Speaker 0 00:16:53 Get you too much on a roll here, kid. Do you know?
Speaker 1 00:16:55 Yeah. If we don't, we don't wanna score too many runs. We don't want, we don't wanna give the fans any hope. Like
Speaker 0 00:17:01 Bad coaching. Yeah,
Speaker 1 00:17:04 Bad, not great Bob, not great or not great Buck, not great.
Speaker 0 00:17:08 Um, all right, let's go over done to, uh, second base. Uh, Moy Bets is here at the top second base eligible Moy Bets here at the top. Uh, di Estrada 55. Lucy is at 54 sim at $5,300.
Speaker 1 00:17:27 Yeah, I mean, Simeon Simeon for, for me, I mean, I could definitely get to Moki. I do think the Dodgers are coming around. Moki is included in that. Like the power has been on full display for Moki bets, uh, recently. So I definitely think you can get there. Shot is fine. We know he hits right? He's better not gonna play F 50. Pay 5,400 for Lu is he's the most expensive when he is been the worst in the worst stretch of his season. Uh, doesn't make sense, but Simeon for me, right? He's, I mean, he kills right-handed pitching. You've already mentioned it twice that Kauffman had no success at Triple A and now is going to pitch to a top end major league lineup that just got Corey Seger back. Like, yeah,
Speaker 0 00:18:10 It doesn't really make
Speaker 1 00:18:10 Sense. The top six, the tops, I mean, even seven, I guess if you wanna include Ezekiel Duran hitting in that lineup, like, it's been really good. I didn't even loaded Loie Leonte Tiber is like, this is a deep lineup that he, this guy's gonna have trouble with. So Timian
Speaker 0 00:18:26 For me, I'm let you there as well. Um, in the mid tier range, guys like Christopher Morrell continued to just hit for power. Um, you know, so hard to kind of just completely ignore, uh, that spot for him there. Uh, we, you know, I don't really want to go against Golin too much there maybe, maybe Lori Garcia here against Boyd. I know it's lefty, lefty, but, uh, Boyd's been pretty trash.
Speaker 1 00:18:52 Yeah, eh, eh, yeah.
Speaker 0 00:18:59 What other second baseman, man? Talk to me, man. Who's, who's your, who's your Targets here
Speaker 1 00:19:05 Dubon back down to 3,200. Um, continues to just give you, well, I, yeah, he's so bad. Um, that's probably my favorite value play. Um, Miguel Vargas. I know he is cooled off a little bit, but he continues to just be very productive from a fantasy standpoint. Um, let's see what the numbers are for Mr. Vargas against left-handed pitching. What are they playing? Are the Dodgers an early game? I feel like they're an early game. Are they in LA trying to find these splits here. Uh, they're an eight 15 game Vargas, uh, 2 81 Woa against lefties. Stephen Mats though dude against Righties 3 41, average nine 40 O p s. 4 0 3 Woa. Like, I don't know, like he, he's in trouble here. The Dodgers have a lot of right-handed bats that they, yeah,
Speaker 0 00:20:03 No, a hundred percent for sure. Um, let's see here. Anybody else for you?
Speaker 1 00:20:11 What about your boy Pablo Reyes? Two for five to double four? Hard
Speaker 0 00:20:17 For me to expect him to continue, but I guess until he doesn't, you know,
Speaker 1 00:20:24 Good <laugh> could just continue. Like, I don't, you know, you're right. I'm not like, I don't know, it's kind of just been good, right? Like it's <laugh> guy's kinda just been good.
Speaker 0 00:20:36 Hey, I, I, I don't even know where this guy came from.
Speaker 1 00:20:40 Well, I don't know what his background was. I don't know what his, but he
Speaker 0 00:20:46 Played a couple years, like in, in Pittsburgh, he like floated around the miners and he just can't stop hitting. So
Speaker 1 00:20:52 He was, he was hitting like two 30 before the call up too in aaa, like he was not hitting well, yeah, <laugh>. So,
Speaker 0 00:20:59 So, I don't know. Uh, let's go to third base here. Uh, devs, Riley Mune, your usual suspects are all up top here. Um, top tougher matchups for, for, for her guys. Like, uh, you know, Muti gets the lefty lefty. Tougher matchup, eh, devs hits lefties. Snell, eh, you know, those are fine. Josh drunk gently hits righties. Sorry, hits lefties better than righties. You know, I don't know this, this doesn't like scream like must play this guy to me. Um, I like Manca at 45 Bregman's coming off of a really strong game, uh, against, you know, he's got Waled Truck here. Uh, wisdom has power against Suarez. I don't know, maybe I'm li <laugh> li living in the mid tier a little bit here.
Speaker 1 00:21:43 Yeah. I don't love the, the top tier
Speaker 0 00:21:46 Are against 3,100 bucks beat against Quantro at $3,100.
Speaker 1 00:21:51 Yep. Yep. Shit, I like both those place
Speaker 0 00:21:54 And play.
Speaker 1 00:21:57 Um, Jung 48. I know I don't love the price and we've talked about it a couple times, has not been a lot lately, but it feels like a really good spot. Yuan Manca 45 feels pretty good. Um, Bregman Homers and two of his last three John. Yeah,
Speaker 0 00:22:14 That's what I'm saying. Like maybe starting to wake up a little bit.
Speaker 1 00:22:18 Um, wisdom Against a Lefty is interesting cuz Patrick Wisdom has been very, uh, has mashed Yeah. Left-handed pitching this year. So 4k Patrick
Speaker 0 00:22:32 Power that comes hit now it seems like. Right? Just, just adding Morrell just easily gives that line up a little bit more oomph.
Speaker 1 00:22:39 Yeah, it does. And when they get Bellinger back, like it only makes it deeper. Uh, wisdom 4 0 6 Woa against left-handed pitching so far, um, this year. So I can get to Wisdom 4k. Um, cow Farmer, 3,100 <laugh> Cow. Farmer 3,100
Speaker 0 00:23:01 Maybe. Maybe, maybe. Um, I still think it's k well, like, I'm not gonna Farmer it is a versus Lefty, but I think I'd rather go maybe Clean Del or Schmidt.
Speaker 1 00:23:12 Jake Burger. Jake
Speaker 0 00:23:13 Burger
Speaker 1 00:23:13 Who just can, I mean,
Speaker 0 00:23:14 Maybe power, right? Why
Speaker 1 00:23:16 Wait, why? Whoa, whoa, whoa. Why, why the what? What is about Jake Burger right now?
Speaker 0 00:23:23 <laugh>. I get, I get it, I get it.
Speaker 1 00:23:25 What
Speaker 0 00:23:26 I mean Yeah,
Speaker 1 00:23:27 You should,
Speaker 0 00:23:27 You're usually like lefties. Righties. But I mean, I dunno,
Speaker 1 00:23:32 I just is Zach Cranky. Does, does he des He doesn't, I mean, no,
Speaker 0 00:23:36 You're right, you're right. 10 bucks cheeseburger. I wanna argue. I mean, it doesn't
Speaker 1 00:23:40 He even be
Speaker 0 00:23:41 Discussed? You're, he's got homework games. What's the
Speaker 1 00:23:43 0.4 17 woba against right-handed pitching this year. Seven home runs.
Speaker 0 00:23:49 Works, works. I just saw Righty. And I was like, eh, usually we get 'em against lefties, but at this point, what's, what's the, what's the point, Greg? He's still on the mountain, so, all right. Shorts stop. Um, I mean Secret 48 kind of just running, running, running back to the Texas stack here. Yes. Yes.
Speaker 1 00:24:07 Texas Five Man, Texas Stack.
Speaker 0 00:24:09 Yep. That's kind of where I'm feeling it. Um, painting against Waldo's, probably fine. Anderson against Cranky. If you er gets a lefty and DKS here, um, it's kind like your mid-range group. No reds on this slate. So that's, we, we lose our, we lose our guy.
Speaker 1 00:24:30 Uh, yeah. McClean.
Speaker 0 00:24:32 Yep. Yep. Uh, is he killed Duran? 2,800 bucks still just solid, right?
Speaker 1 00:24:38 Yep. Yeah. He'll be solid. Yep. Any Texas, anyone that suits up for Texas.
Speaker 0 00:24:43 Mm.
Speaker 1 00:24:44 Literally anybody that you see up for Texas here in place.
Speaker 0 00:24:46 Agree. Every else though?
Speaker 1 00:24:49 Nope.
Speaker 0 00:24:49 Outfield.
Speaker 1 00:24:54 Outfield.
Speaker 0 00:24:55 I mean, you're looking at 'em. Everyone. There's a lot of, a lot of expensive guys.
Speaker 1 00:24:58 Everyone, everyone, uh, Tais I think is fine. Jordan, Dan hits lefties. That's gonna be a very good spot for while the Chuck as wild Chuck's very bad. Um, I love Moki bets. Um, okay, uh, Buxton 52. ALUS 51. That's our, that's our Gpp darling. Another double digit or multi-home run game is three 20 Fancy Point games, right?
Speaker 0 00:25:26 Hits righties better than lefties. Uh,
Speaker 1 00:25:28 Hits righties better than lefties. Then you go down under 4k. JD Martinez, if you're continuing the Dodger stack, 4,700 Santander. Another home run against Lefties on Thursday. All all
Speaker 0 00:25:42 National lefthand
Speaker 1 00:25:42 Lefties. Yeah, I mean it's just year in, year out. Uh, GREK 43 gets a lefty. He's in a really good spot. Uh, Ian Hap, if you're gravitating towards,
Speaker 0 00:25:52 He's trying to go feel too cheap against Gibson here. Springer and are 42, 41.
Speaker 1 00:25:57 They do? Yeah, that's, uh, the Cubs and Toronto right here in this tier. All too cheaps. All all in play as well. Uh, Hayes leading off 4k.
