  1. Oscar Gonzalez wins this one for the Cleveland Guardians. I explain I do not hate him, or wish any ill will. The Guardians have so few right-handed bats I very much want him to be extremely successful. We also look at some old friend alerts across the league as several players have been on the move. We talk about the weird situation that has led to the Angel's failures and wonder aloud if the Guardians should cash in prospect capital to try and acquire Shohei Ohtani for a rental for next year with the knowledge that a draft pick would also be returned when he inevitably left. Is it worth the cost to acquire to help push this team over? Not to mention the eyes, excitement, and ticket/gear sales it would lead to.
  2. We dig into the win, a game the Guardians maybe got a little lucky to win. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim had a ton of walks but they were not able to put anything together to get more than one run across. We also find out that Emmanuel Clase has the lowest ERA in the history of the MLB for any player with more than 50 appearances, that is pretty darn good.
  3. We look at some numbers for the Cleveland Guardians. We spend a lot of time on who produces in the minors, and about the good and bad of game-to-game performance. But I realized we really haven’t discussed the year-round numbers just in terms of who has been the top producers on this team. The big takeaways Franmil Reyes was maybe let go too quickly, there are signs of hope for Myles Straw, there are reasons to bet on Oscar Gonzalez, and Nolan Jones was better when he was up than he got credit for.
