What governor bill fired up Monday that's for sure I I'm excited guy I don't necessarily get in the sun a night baseball but I'm always excited whenever the season opens so I'm looking forward to that point. This pitching rotation in Garza starting on the DL and everything that they've announced are you comfortable whether. You know what real real quick bill do you being from Cincinnati you know what. I always look forward to it in my younger dates for the reds have fire up the season than you did don't you have to miss that I mean that's. To me that's part of baseball which just should have stayed that tradition. It's it was always between them in the Detroit Tigers and they have we still have it the Findlay market parade if you government in Cincinnati and opening day there's a parade there was Findlay market it's were all of the farmers in the cattle raisers used to bring their. Their goods and sells and services. To the middle of the city and the city would come down in collect this and then so it starts from there are that bad in the opening day ball starts there. And they were always bring it down river front stadium and then we'll before that was probably field. And that tradition has stayed intact and it is always a huge event the whole city turns out for that and we market correct. Yeah I just see you know you always he always waited for the reds game. The engine due to do but the reds played you knew you knew there are there were live bullets in the ourselves but on this rotation. Craig Counsell has said that he he told us a few months ago in the offseason that indeed there is pressure. On two of those guys that rotations and and one is Willie Peralta and the others Jimmy Nelson and they were gonna find out. That's a luxury that the Brewers organization has right now if indeed you. You called a luxury. Is that they've got the time to find out if these guys are keepers and they needed and not only for the team but state personally. Need to step up. Because they're they're career is really. When it when it comes to gauging how they are a number two are they have potential you know all star whatever. There on the line here both of these guys we've seen flashes out of both of all maybe a little extended flash out of out of Willie more than Jimmy Nelson but. I mean there there is pressure and and Craig Counsell use that word there is pressure on those guys. Then there should be and when you talk about this rotation knew this is this is one of those proving years I think for as you would mention some of those names specifically will Lee and Jimmy. Because you got to figure out what your rotation is going to be because you've got a guy like a hater down in the minors right now that if he lights it up he's going to be pressing for a job they wanna get him into the rotation that we can figure out where you're at now a year or two. So you need to know what you go out and pick up in free agency when a lot of this other Dallas Stars to come together. Yeah an and that and that's why this this is the year it and I feel. I feel that given the fact that they've had some sort of six outs. And I feel okay that they're gonna compete and are they going to be. You know this is Willie drawl to get a repeat of seventeen win season is Jameer Nelson and then rattle off you know instead of a ten game run last year with a two plus CRA. The other battle ops may be at and maybe take the next step into the seventeen to nineteen runs before he gets a little dead arm. But I have been wolf find the most you'll find those things out for sure. So looking at this job lineup Bulls say Tom for what they have where are you comfortable in where you not comfortable. This is like Christmas Eve demean bill I mean this is it. Unlike a lot of other seasons we knew we had with the Ramos Ramirez we've we kind of knew we had with with some gap didn't. Gerard open our eyes and we knew without veterans. Over their first base and Mark Reynolds and an overbay and Adam lane and didn't end Chris Carter we kind of knew certain things. With this team the way it's put together right now. I don't think we know a ton that's what's exciting about this we don't is Domingo Santana for real. Does anybody know. You're handed you know if Domingo Santana is a real ballplayer. We're gonna find that out Travis shock can he carry the load. You know for a 150 games over there at third base can he get the lefty I was doing a little big and on Travis Josh terror. He had a nice first half last year but. That despite that still it is it is let's lefty on lefty weren't were not good. It is is is BER. For re can he repeat. Aaron and Perez I looked at his numbers can he do what he did last year hack. If you equate pro rate out some numbers on Perez he's just as good as VR has yeah I mean Perez hit 272 last year. We are to 285. And it it in the you don't ninety games for Paris so there are some question is is key on Broxton. A star player. Well we've seen a thirty game run last year that tells us he has. We've also seen him strike out well what eleven. Sixteen at bats to start the year last year. So so many question marks bill it's awesome. Especially when you guy guys right now sitting in the minors. You know that that Louis Brentson derby the first got a comes to mind. You know you're gonna fortify an outfield position eventually for this guy with a power that he has so is he going to be the guy that. When they decide to move somebody over there he's gonna take over center field because Ryan brawn has then been dealt. Or is she got its gonna take over one of these positions that you just mentioned from say Domingo Santana who seems healthy this year because remember last year coming into the season he wasn't healthy got nicked up during the season he said he was never comfortable now he says he's comfortable and ready to go so of this guy doesn't show it now does he suddenly fall by the wayside remembrance and comes up and takes his spot what about Brett Phillips if he has a good year. Do they elevate him to triple A if he continues to do well there how quickly does he make his way into the minors her into the majors because this is a guy that has fallen off the last year there's. This going to be one of those exciting years I said let's just say it again we're not only watch a big league club or watching a minor league clubs as well. You know we're we were going to end and really intriguing part about all this is it. If you would say it's convoluted. Not really now it's all about when Stearns the GM of the Brewers is gonna flip the switch when does he flip the switch to the youth movement. Were seeing little taste of it we knew we definitely are well you mention a couple of players there and in Princeton hater when does he flip that switch to say okay. Now it's go time. Now we've got some pieces in place here. Let's start move in these guys filtering them into the system. Not only to get their development gone at the big league level but. But to win some win some baseball games that's the insisting parts here when does he flip the switch that. To take these guys looked like he did last year look look for all that was sent to the minor leagues last year you mob elite young men got a little taste early last year and they they had no patience with him whatsoever. When does he flip that switch to the real goat time that's that's going to be fascinating as well. Is this the year that we see at the trade deadline and Ryan brawl on the longest tenured her were dealt or do they continue to hang on him in your opinion. That's the biggest that's the biggest question you know it really really has not. Not getting any younger as I still think and and and I believe that says he has to one of the more productive outfielders is in the bench. And the numbers the numbers bear that out. Now the question would be. Do you need him to do that right now. As you're developing him and put this puzzle together that would be to that question I think they have tried I think they're trying. At at this very moment I do I think there. There and all sorts of negotiations. And I don't know how deep it is an office in the just specifics at all. But you would think the way this is structured that. If if Stearns gets a deal that he feels comfortable that he's gonna go simple lecturer. All right Tim I'm gonna give us some thoughts here and you tell me if I'm right wrong in media tour a genius okay. I know you can tell me I'm an idiot all day long you go without. I said I wrote this last night I'm sure you probably read this morning because as your first read every day I said last night down my AL MVP is Mike trail. So you do that that's wild mine to be out. Okay my NL MVP I think is this is the year that he puts it all together and doesn't get injured Bryce Harper. Way we're going chalk currently. You know we are now the Brewers MVP the Brewers MVP Jonathan BR. Okay I see that the Brewers player I'm most intrigued by a zoo say you are. That's insisting him with a twelve is the entire first base situation. That at agro Harden and Eric say they are. Mean he just leave it up in earned his way on to this team so this guy keeps it up like that I mean things becomes an afterthought almost if he can't put together offensively. That's the crazy part of that same sign a three year deal and a as an organization for a thirty year old in an organization that has dealt for all intents and purposes you know in in full tilt. But rebuild you at and they go ahead sign an unproven guy for a three year deal they get. Really he gets move to play some outfield time in spring because of a guy they've they've picked up off the scrap heap and in have a lot that's that's pretty intriguing to you right. So in the brewers' final record. 78 and 84. One nice twelve they're right there at the cost of 500. Means eight you know what if they over achieve according to your 78 bill. That means we have some relevant baseball in August. You your correct. What we are so that is meiji giddy did that yes. Out ways. Oh god I hope your right okay my AL champion at the pennant winner and American League side is the Baltimore Orioles. Sooner or later they're gonna that is step up and and and and tax somebody I can. That's exactly the reason why otherwise I have to go to Boston is I think Boston's starting to put it altogether and then my NL champion is the San Francisco Giants. See now I'm gonna go a little bit a little bit south of there I'm going with the LH. Doc Dodgers this is there you're a parent yeah I don't subscribe engineers say future all okay now I get it because you got money involved OK I assume your heart lies. I but everybody's talking about the Washington Nationals and they very may well be but I just for whatever reason I can't is much as I like him as a person I cannot jump behind Dusty Baker he always seems down the stretch he falters. They won 95 games last year and you you get to that mid mid ninety's range and you keep knocking on that door or maybe just like the Baltimore. Situation maybe the nationals beat that door down to. And the other team that everybody's talking that was the Mets could the Mets are one of the best pitching rotations all baseball. And now they're they're didn't help with a little injury issues you. Now that it just seemed to have a stroke of bad luck here. But my World Series champion is a San Francisco adjustments. So that I got. The way I I love their manager he has he has one of the all time. Great managers in baseball. Oh gee I really really like no doubt about it always gonna talk to your body and I'll put all this comes true eventually on the road or talk about relevant baseball in August immigrant. Oh right well nobody talked a letter they go that's Tim Allen osu baseball post game show joining us for a couple of minutes on the Schneider orange allied shatter Harry drivers right now you were cart.
