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!

    Grey, where does your irrational hate of Diaz come from? Does your family have a long standing feud with his? You hated him in of off-season, called him worthless, I believe. Left him off top 100 2nd half. And now are saying you would take Bregman over Diaz but Correa over Bregman even tho Diaz is above Correa on the player rater, and Correa is on your top 100 2nd half. What does he have to do get in your good graces.

    This is a player you are obsessed with: 54/12/53/.283/9 and this is Diaz: 61/13/53/.315/4
    It’s just mind blowing that Player A is #26 on top 100 2nd half and Diaz is off the list.

      Not very young and at the age of 24 he looked like a scrub in Double-A… Has little speed (6+ SBs), little power (15-ish HR) and could hit .275 with neutral luck… It’s not great long term

        @Jensen: @Grey: Haha you totally did slam Diaz and Garcia! BOTH have been good! Hahaha. I do agree I would take Bregman over Dias though, but that has more to do with Bregman than anything.

        @Grey: He’s only 25, not like hes 28-29 and just made it to MLB. He took 2 years off from baseball to defect from Cuba before he got signed by an MLB team and went to AA, not a surprise he looked less than stellar.. When he got healthy last year he mashed the entire 2nd half in AAA and then mashed in the AFL. He’s hitting 2nd in the 3rd scoring offense in baseball, the counting stats are going to pile up. He doesn’t strikeout. .904 OPS. Not like his BABIP is out of control so IDK what you mean by neutral luck, I think you are talking about bad luck and his BABIP dropping 30 points.

          @Jensen: @Jensen: Not saying you should love the guy, just trying to make a case that maybe his history isn’t as bad as you are making it out to be. and he is outplaying Correa and Seager through 400AB’s this year!!!

            @Grey: @Jensen: SS has been an unbelievable position. My money would still be on those guys to best Diaz too though from this point on :)

    does melvin to the blue jays hurt his value and how much?

    • knucks says:

      @Jeff: Jeff? Jef? Oh wait, is this not the Jeff from today’s Ante quote?

      Likely has about the same value, plus PT could be a concern if he starts sharing the job with Pillar/Saunders

        @Jeff: @knucks: That’s Jef with one F! Haha dunno if thats who you’re referencing…

        Umm, yeah about the same I would say. I bet they’d play him over Pillar…

    I’d just like to make it known that I once won $350 on that very same Wonka machine in Pennsylvania. The oompas were good to me that day. Blew it all on steaks and beverages that night haha

        @Grey: Not to sound like we have a gambling prob or anything…. But my girly snagged $800 off a penny machine this past weekend. Over the internet (and through the woods) high five from my girl to Grey’s mom!

          @knucks: Nice! I wanted to win money, I tried, really, but it wasn’t meant to be…And it ruined Willy Wonka for me going forward

    Hey Grey! I don’t feel guilty watching the Challenge anymore knowing that you watch it too. With the departure of Wes last week who do we root for this week? As much as I don’t want to, I think I will be rooting for Devin and Cheyenne because I don’t want to see Johnny Bananas win another Challenge.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Devin and Chey have no chance whatsoever, unfortunately… I’m rooting for none of the above like the presidential election

          @JB Gilpin: HAHA I was waiting for you to jump in JB. You don’t know what you are missing out on. To our defense they do have a fantasy challenge.

          I’m 6’8 and have also been told I run like a baby giraffe.

            @Made in Taijuan: Hah yeah I’m so behind on sooooo many shows these days that it’s near impossible to hop in new ones haha. Being tall is no joke, it’s tough out there for us! And those midgets like Grey… They’re hiding something…

    Is Jon Gray a relative sell high? Or do you think he can keep up the level of success he’s had the past three months?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Joe: Ummm, I’m still fairly iffy on him due to Coors and some ups and downs. Might have to come back to this one on the Pod!

    Yo yo @ jbgilpin and @grey

    Great giggly podcast. I shall henceforth dub this “The Giant and the Jew”
    SO let it be written.
    That said. Just a fun fact which means zero to you but does not require advice.
    Joined a longtime $ league this year totally stevie wonder about the other owners…needless to say I have 16 total saves on the year and am in 3rd overall somehow.

    My RP are ALL over the trade deadline so I have been a bit uber obsessed with trade updates.

    Dull, Thornburg, Nate Jones, O’Dizzay, and the best trade deadline closer….Andrew Miller….

    I hope I wasted a few moments of both your days reading this. Now I will start my real post….I KEEEEED and PLAY with a wicked fade.

    word.

    Otis OUT!
