On today’s episode, The Skipper and Rich Herrera discuss the biggest story in baseball the big league debut of Julio Urias for the LA Dodgers. Kevin and Rich talk about the top prospect in baseball and what his scouting report says. We discuss how to break a pitcher into the big leagues in the pen or keep him a starter in the big leagues or maybe even Triple A.
We stay on the Mets/Dodgers series and look at what is ailing Matt Harvey of the Mets. How important is command of the strike zone? We discuss the merits of skipping a start for a struggling pitcher.
We also talk about Jackie Bradley Jr’s just ended hotting streak and Kevin shares a story of what the late, great Tony Gywnn had to say about which is harder…hitting .400 or break the 56 game hitting streak? We discuss if moving Bradley up in the order had anything to do with his hitless night.
Finally, Kevin shares with you the inside story of Jose Canseco and what happened when the ball bounced off his head for a homer 23 years ago this week.
