You know -- sometimes I forget more on the air when we come back from the break with this particular son who's just such an easy vibe to it I can letter arrived all away our duty to and it pitched Judy perfectly. Shooting Babin joins us every single week here. Inside the big Z is the best friend of the program typically. It's at 1130 that we have a little bit earlier scheduled today so of course he adjusted his schedule so I thank you Judy I welcome you shooting. And what's going on man how you don't today. Gentlemen gentlemen happy Sunday both BO turbulent and cast in lord I'm walk what my own two feet well nobody helped me go off. Pretty hard to complain about anything bigger. Yeah and you get to it baseball is your life you get paid to do something you're passionate about. Very few of us are blessed enough to be able to do that let's get right in some baseball I see the DA's farm system. Has moved up they used to be consistently ranked in the top three. They were not in the top three there were not in the top ten I don't think Intel. The Sonny gray trade now all of a sudden. They're ranked number six now I'm sure the rankings will very. Depending on who's giving their ranks but everybody agrees they got a decent little hall from the New York Yankees so what are your thoughts on that trade did they get value. In return for Sonny gray. Well probably so it will you know in dollars. On the time of the year thank you do that you can say money. Next year on upgrading or. A big deal that made it portrayed it on try to keep my pops. We can't buy anything that happened that all its first depending on who the players and that change. You know you kind of the liberty U pretty much to take with the Oakland cute. Look at your alarm though you have actually been this year but he mandate on that your of his career. But it value probably more to get into another all affinity for the eight. And you look at the corporate club that. You know they're pretty much pot and it's a little bit because it pretty happy are cute and haven't set at the minor league level at each level he will. And they're bringing her along slowly I mean some people drop out Reid bill that think you're more let's recall. Recruiting right now so anything it and not think he hit. I answered it like to get a significant chunk it they can't I think maybe I ought to bring somebody else or may not be able. Date and because they really enjoy watching on bill this year and a great breakout year but I'm they'll get a chance to watch and boys in the American League west. And that's what's so great operate well at. A stamp on a 120 games are still a lot of significant baseball live so on the would be fun to watch. Syria always a pleasure my man. You played the game. We saw when Matt Joyce in we know was wrong. And I just wanna get your perspective. Argued are shocked in this new era now with the social media. That the conversations. Are you know disagreements like dad or just right there at the fans disposable for all to hear now days. Yeah Derek curry. Aren't good because. And LP and an immediate worry eager careful what you say. On Kirkland term no matter what you point to and someone not learned early on. And I try to remind people on and I'll point out or raise beer and pretty much rain but we don't you where you are we touched on Serbia color. About where your pull on their way to article on idol. And not like the war zone on the field. At proper. Make me react in a wake up. Two no compliment. Out here. It's that people think that they can say anything and so on. And not separate can't quote other people are accountable when they do when they re you know without going. And and may not be right. Some people can relate to me. Alice told you know in start I would somebody. Noah because not that you look. At what. That your last. Interview and hard responded you can get it apart here yeah. You hurt by EPA and the people and the NY and keep it up like a well. And there REIT in repercussions for their hearings on the merit money. Stern who are great people lie because at the lack. 99% of people are. Water or milk at an apple cart record an out there. That's unfortunate that a situation like this comes up because. Most of the vibe surrounding the Oakland has been largely positive earned to have this thrown out and it's so out of character from what I understand I don't know Matt Joyce you know from Adam but. I've talked to a number of people since this went down. And I've yet to talk to somebody who doesn't have nothing but great things to say about this guy so for him all the sudden have this you know this black mark on his ledger. It's just unfortunate so let's move on from that let's move on to something positive I felt like. The interleague series between the giants in the a's look to fans always get into it. It it is a legit robbery in while it may not be as big a deal to the players is that fans. There's definitely some added juice we had Bob Melvin on the program a little bit earlier he says oh yeah you can you can feel that if it's it's definitely it pumps guys up a little bit the crowd always. It when the crowd's into it the players and read more into it whose journey specific take away for you from that series I mean for me it was just. This is exactly who the a's are they're young they're exciting they're talented. They're gonna win some games just based off that young talent but they got a lot to learn. So they're gonna lose a couple of games so that seemed very much in character with these days I don't know what to make of the giants these days. What did you what did you take out that interleague series. About step in and I'm gonna do like each album felt like Utley hit its sister. It which is looking right at its what write about it but there that we want to lost to. At the two great army went eureka and Herbert Perry to the arm but it. Between that and a whole lot to get excited about Dijjer talk about should sell off. I upload edit their appointed as the folks it could come. Become accustomed to having winning team that could jolt of energy at the back a little bit. Now that you're opening network that great article and you hit it at well expect prop you'll be armed. Operate in an epic in a little different but it looked more like their own little party. You don't get the habit you've ever appeared go up where our people enable us are here and you're. Shooting when you look at arise. You know what ownership and management have seen him not do from the beginning of the season. To where they would look at him differently going to the next season or do you think this might pretty much beat it form. Well not in the mall there in the summer or luck at the human years. And he's a pleasure to be around. That spectrum the only club at its current speaker of the Chopra spent Lou to be Europe's. How Ireland's situation. Like that to impact in the next. Struggle. He hadn't been consistent and has gone out there. And job. Apartment product but it. It job Roger very figures though in our current accurate quote at the light and a lot. I think back up in the league club work. A lot spotted. Available he can do so many. Packer game late in the game America. Here and that commitment and your swing he's hit the ball real lot right now. To allot. A lot of lot ought not got a lot. More because I'll return the game that played out differently now. In short component Rudnick because there are some and they're really got Oprah did you. Bush cheers that issued you Babbitt he joins us every Sunday here inside the bigs on Michael Irvin alongside Darrell the guru Johnson. Shooting Matt Chapman the more I watch him the more I'm just blown away by the guy I didn't realize. That he was as good as he is defensively may be it's just because the games that I've seen him play Diaz and been challenged defensively but recently began to have watched. I'm seeing him make divers he's making over the shoulder catches he's flashing a bit of a gun over there on the hot corner. Is is this a future gold glove winner over there. Altman he can't call a halt to actually do so now. A young player c'mon you know when I am somebody on art. Actually in you'll say who you re Narnia and couldn't go the umpire. All the while gold content on it and they're hockey fight. I'm not count on there matched wall lean colonel Walt like. Kind of got in a letter and that enabled Blake arranged to out. I thought it double played in at about stern that we don't call would probably the golf course that you. Oh yeah that happened lightning quick. An incredible. Dot laughing you know. You're mad at it by a lot from Adam about. On May yet go out and make it appeared all start you know. Morant impressive in the an opportunity to meet him laps we were all of them and it's welcomed pop and yet there she. I mean acute that it will who understand it. I mean no one I. Around all that didn't hear the it was shipped out of pressure over like here you know. To. Like the person you don't know he'll seek a bit on its return it. Surely I'm curious what's the goal for the rest of the season for the the for the young athletics. And how much. In a ball player actually change the mindset of what's the you know. This then he manager and ownership looks at their play when the rat of. Well I should be open with a layer of opportunity. And anybody can acute in beer hall a whole lot move and shake. On the field all the I mean there's a lot. Been out there in Oakland and go look up. Yup click the panic change. The likely you can have a great career already acknowledged in the park opened. Got a chance he'd be you got caught in a manager. The main goal right now we're just learning how to win and stop you can get away. I think late negate it and make some stakes in debacle that they expect weaker Euro group at the but lately leapt out at come here. And got them learn how to win as a group and now you got. Bedecked pretty much look up to appear in a matchup that partly. You know this chair. All it's not so cockpit and normally that streak of success there the whole Lotta competition on the oh lead god emperor. In the run. Should you five to rank they youngsters on the days that I enjoy watching the most Chatman would be number one. Number two for me is Chad under in Tulsa about as much as you know about and tell us about I'm not not passive not necessarily the skill set we see it. But look at a guy is he what kind of future does he have is he someone that you can have that should be part of the court that the age rebuild around. Well he'll block shortstop. We got that they would pick and about being the next until. Franklin rattle him one saint. Neglect on the effective date it. Mark in the in my opinion they're taking their job and got to choke hold on Bart a super duper come into it on but what I. Approach will tender. Is it ability. In the air on the field you know the power play here not one in the leak there have got released here. Those being insulate they are the wait in line. Okay here you can play all at unimportant as anywhere on and work out I think you're very valuable. The part skills like I don't water in the course you couldn't government and name it.
