Decorate your legs spread out over the not chill out yeah okay bodies OK let's have some blue stimulant seriously revenues are between the not so chipper but she's not sultan Buick. Crickets they're not all the listeners are returning well you'll to a lot rebellions right now tenure over new low. Arctic cricket. Whole body but he's got by itself. You gitmo which aren't we heard like five or six admire and compliment our. Chocolate covered scorpion. Well. You know lies and now we need to get recipes with Stevie on an Iraq had its time for cooking show on the stations let's get Sparky one as well. But small woodland creatures being fried up by Steve -- small woodland creatures on the phantom that it would help people lead bugs all over the world but are right here in America knew we played baseball let's get to brewers reds here. The hot story right now at around 430 this afternoon Ken Rosenthal sources having the Mets and brewers close to a deal involving. The second baseman Neil Walker now John Jimenez and re exports confirming that that deal was done through this one use Sparky deal like the deal. The help this team win games down the stretch. God doesn't do much to me personally. But if you look at some of the numbers that are out there mean this year not having agreed here yet. Our country in the portion of the season we're. Well actually gain he he's played really well the last couple actually go over to inject extra nine. Switch hitter so that obviously helped add to a better president of the club up bottle kind of duty as that. You know the National League did and actually his whole career. Article we're like 530 or slugging percentage Angela Park. But I cattle. Helped along its good OP are much higher. All the way to he would and New York this year another. That being at home so now obviously deposited to. A pretty good look at raw numbers this year battled an opera he brought all the other numbers to rise to make it looks sexier. That it becomes or salt and I can't imagine that given how much they almost reform million dollars rusty or someone area. 870 point two million this year is going to make coal a Vietnamese free agent after this year so. No harm no follow your reading from a two and a half and put aside doubts surgeon you're making up about. Yeah I'd have to agree with you there and I memories of Neil Walker. Not being so friendly to the brewers and news in the black and yellow for the Pittsburgh Pirates as you mentioned not very spectacular to 6410 home runs on the season with the Mets so far other through on this one to you than bill. If you are gonna give something up for an you don't wanna sacrifice the future. There I don't I don't really care when I'm giving up we don't care to your farm is a great move it's a brilliant movie bring a guy and that's been his for seven years in the NL central against the pirates a Pittsburgh guy he grew up in Pittsburg and let him go. After he said he will be was. Willing to reside they let him go in any dosing consistently plays well with the Mets and Stevie obviously alluded to the injury that he had a earlier on this year but guys silicon at a career to seventy inner a guy that's won a silver slugger award and he's 31 years old and he's gonna be a guy that that fits right in the mold of what this offense needs if he's gonna play every day at second base guys. They they put such a value on being able to even out that lineup you add a switch hitter there at second base. That you think you can get some legitimate production from last night got a nice night from Jonathan VR Nat leadoff spot. But guys I think the bigger question is now that he's he's he's got to be here on Tuesday when you face the pirates that passed avenue's going to be in line of that. But I'm dangerous it is ccb where they put him in the lineup I think it fits really well right now it who'll. But I would not be opposed to seeing him slide down to five. I'm file with the attitude that we did side. They wanted to be civil have Leo trigger you know walker not only option though you're not putting bear I'm more in a residency water but to drop in the yard art so art. I want I want the CF one of them are going back in the trade. For a one of them has dug in his first silent because again folk artist as struggle that helped a little bit and and DR was just patently off which I've why. So he'll be a rescue absent those two guys at now. Want to know walker number one. I I do like the idea those the Sparky you keep VR I'm not on the Major League roster he has a bench guy. He gets a lot of value especially late in the game with his I mean not defensively but you bring Amanda back that threat as a pinch runner and eighth and ninth inning close games like last night. That does a lot for. So you feel confident and in his Smart base running ability play it again. No I I believe and had cedar to make sure that he does not screw up nearly as much as he has in the past any. You have to change into a race. Or there's already left guys need to start winning these games to. They are chartered yeah are actually Kaloko pocket change there they aren't they're not that are Smart and they have been. That's why he loses its. They thought I would I agree with you I would love to have a speed guy on the bench. I would prefer to have a big guy had a bad signals what do. All I am I fairly odd package. But it running out on the day at late or potential running at me at first the same sort of the first pitch. A matter thicker picturing you out first they include a bit. We this is coming back while claims another jab at bill Schmitz now alleged have a city jam their claims it was a jab and Eric finds a jab and airplanes let our anger. Helpful and Eric thing yeah body involved controller in the arc that claims that whole week it won't try to reflect and basically it started our capital. Communicate. The syllable in order to Munich captain I assume nothing and you wait to watch this team and a bite behind all the time. Well there have back to bugs again. Anyway. This brewers offense definitely struggling as of late despite the loss last night where they put up sixteen hits and ten runs they still. Got nothing out of their starting center field spot Keon brock's an offer to a strike Al Saud just four pitches. In those two at bats now looks like they're making a move for a second baseman Tina is double manager Craig Counsell has tried just about everything to get some consistent offense production at the plate from center fielder. Who is the answer we've seen Brad filthy scene was Brentson. Any thoughts on that bill Schmidt. I I would. I wanted to be Keon rocks and I've seen him you've seen him get hot and be able to carry that bottom part of the order for for stretches in his time here at Miller Park but. I think you're consistent it continues to be kind of the way it is if you're not get hot there's you're going to be held accountable they're gonna cycle through. If I continue to go back and forth until somebody takes all of the job. Yeah. Definitely now a far cry from the days of Carlos Gomez locking things down in center now I don't want I don't wanna see that again you don't wanna see I don't know. I don't know why he was a little spark Ellis park just wanna see that he can tell you market doesn't wanna see Carlos Gomez again. Oh I think shout out to about what she. But look I mean this thing with me years and it sort of flowed it did this issue did you leopards and center field let me right I agree whole breadth and it's that your job about matchups he approximate how much Robert Phillips. Your play every day that you saw the rest here and you suck the rest the year but you're starting center next year Edward majority sports. It developed here the betting Brit to clean up when Ingrid Marie. Are a lot of just clicking on proxy what's the difference at this. Couldn't agree more many find against some rats and may be by the time you're. Legitimately competing for a panic next season. With Al these streaks at the end of the season maybe he can put something together for in a more meaningful part of the lineup. Back to back to use our three year. Right two to three years one year whatever your timeline is getting ready to go for when the time comes. Already backed back to use Sparky the wheels really fallen off for Jimmy Nelson last night a real clunker definitely not the formerly seen from him as of late. He had been Iraq in this rotation and Matt Garza Tuesday night absolutely shelled against the twins Brent Souter on tonight. He also hasn't had his best stuff the last few times out you'd love to hang another run ten runs on Cincinnati. That's not necessarily doable but if the starters struggling right now can't figure it out. Is hitting picking up even gonna be enough to get them back in the NL central race here. Well our rotation for the last chapter marker would probably about everybody. Yeah yeah it would its orbit for five innings to get your your old adage at this point. Yeah it will tribes have not going to be enough it was one of those games last night but again regardless cult which in the past you can rent 19 come back and next thing you have to. 01. You're hitting goes away immediately to get five or six rounds like ours excellent tomorrow it is thought that that contract. I that it would get started pitching six eventually to eat. A market it's time to panic on Monday but it took part in not on Monday. It's probably part haven't gotten a five game down on Monday so they need to win these next two games make sure worst. Stay where they are division race that become continue to. To beat deep actually go from there. We can agree with more that was Steve Sparky five feet to find him on Twitter at Sparky radio bill Schmidt with us in studio at bill Schmidt a radio and Billy. Talking about the starting rotation here if nothing picks up they might have to make a move and try to get another guy in there to get to straighten out. Mean a toss in name Nazi went twelve starts this year and AAA he's eaten one and 286 ERA. It Taylor young men making ascension back to the major leagues and possibly be the savior in this season he's been dealing in a very tough pitching environment Colorado Springs. Lost party's energy if your five games out on Monday this c.'s bureau you're out you're done that that's aren't going to be able to cut it in you have three teams that are going to be vying for this this spot. For the rest of the season so that's just not gonna cut you have to win games he's here. But there's going to be an opportunity in September when rosters expand where I would not be surprised to see Taylor young and get at least one or two opportunities in the rotation. But you saw that coming from Jimmy Nelson you don't pitch that long and you're going to have a clunker at some point. Oh it's not extended that's where you go into a butt spear was tied today I saw in the clubhouse just a little while ago you shake it off he moved forward but he was right brain and quarter stretch well. His second start in your five and two thirds two run ball you can't be upset with that we've seen out of him as well Zach Davies street or itself via the clunkers well last night but. I I'm not too worried about the starting rotation moving forward especially all reports really really good on chasing Anderson coming out of his first rehab start he's awfully good to meet you out west. In that's that ten game West Coast road trip Sparky that's gonna be a telltale sign I think it's taken this thing. Even if it intrigued about on the road trip out West Coast trips all the stormed into the East Coast. Or kill teach them at last is just how baseball works as always worked. And that will absolutely keep Ursula and after that there's still. In a couple games out of first place or whatever Richard there's the great and he can other road trip in seven out of oak. And you did you see the trade male locker while. Early signing. While seven games how we need to picks back up some space there this this could be the time they do get hot and flipped that script and that's the story that you need. Sparky both attorney coined. Magic carpet ride in point ten that's where it starts seven and three on the West Coast road trip. The problem that you you lost. Or your magic star break it appeared the mark all of it you don't like baseball cap on your side. Everything turned against you can you haven't found it yet. The cardinals all that. They they got it but if you lost. Thankfully the cubs have no idea what they're doing so we you're you're still I think I'll because of that and you're right. There aren't some of that epic feud Neil Walker you need and what we're NC. Oh Bob don't. They had magic carper rides pixie dust pennant race the 2017 championship season. As some like to call it and Sparky guarantee a win tonight all I'd love to see after the game he got to get some big wins here against a last place Cincinnati red team. One final question for both you. The kind of alluded to it there but what do you think the true identity of this team is the first half of the season their raking their playing with their hair on fire the second half. It seems like they can go down any time anywhere no consistency. Where is that exactly what this team has a young streaky inexperienced team. They're young and they're they're impressionable and their emotional and I think that's what. Like we said it they rolled that early arm he has got to get back to and it all starts score runs strikeouts you're gonna hear from him. I think coming up next he he talks about a use got to score runs that's where that's for the energy in this game comes from that's for the passion comes from. I he'd there's a clip and Mary makes a joke he says. You don't see you don't get a high five line after a guy goes three up and three down the starting pitcher does in the first inning so -- you'll love starting pitching we got to search score some runs and that's how this team is gonna be able run through. You've got to. Thank you bill Schmidt for a few minutes we'll catch up later tonight both of us some lucky admirals baseball post game show elf after hopefully. Brewers get a win in snapped this sixteen skid to four Richard Anthony appreciate it man and Steve Sparky Pfeiffer thank you for a few minutes as well hoping for the rest your afternoon or.

Towards and your new home on the other side this quick break we're gonna go get the scoop from the skipper Craig Counsell at Miller Park before. For game two between the brewers and reds today.

Built by nosing got together building better on sports Radio One 057 FM the fan. This is the Pella windows and doors of Wisconsin on deck show once Greg called celeb land for today's game. Let's find out what today's scoop from the skipper on low 57 FM the fan. Brewers reds game tune just over thirty minutes away from first pitch at Miller Park. Brent soon erupt since Scott Feldman in the pitcher's duel for this one. The birds coming in at 59 and 59 they've lost their last 6 I am Anthony Mandela this is the Pella windows and doors of Wisconsin on deck show built by a Zynga. Together building better. And you heard the big boys in the skies they write their time now to hear from brewers manager Craig Counsell. It. It's been my. Even though. The reason I don't know one thing. Dealers and progress more in line girls in the field. Okay. Secularism. It's. Yes those cardinals aren't metrics I would say but that's that's that's the wrong methods and metrics. That's one away certain neighborhoods to evaluate I mean I think look I think. You know I've said this the first week of the season this and this is the second base was going to be a projects. I do think it's improved. There's been sees her husband's mistakes last couple games but I do think he's improved defensively at second base and he's improved as the season this one on. And either so there's there's. And needs sir there's a ways to go there still needs more improvement I think there is room for more improvement. We in the future. Big dents. Going to be his best position as a rate of this and I think that's probably that's certainly in the infield. Tremendous the Simpsons. You know when you had him again so are there still wasn't. I mean I think. And I think John exhaust that we lost that quite a bit of playing time immediately for weeks. This past brochure it's been part of this road trip so. You know it takes. And it's you know we're looking at this point where or Adam you're looking for a little bit of us bargain and something different. And just got to try to speed up a minute so it's you know we were. We've been shrines to get some guys and these guys get hot they're certain they're gonna they're gonna play and so that's what word you know that's why not a mosque yesterday and trying to sell it felt like it's just watches at bats. And then killed his last maybe 67 at bats at them maybe there's something a little bit. Get a good night last night so. You know it's and it's not that when utilities season there everyday tourist season by any means. You know he's got an easy pattern at this point improvement at this point. You know I mean I think it's still involved in that for sheer. And I think his at bats and improved the last couple days to. So you know hopefully learn Morgan certainly get some production out of. Session. And then they come in and you're looking at starter for some numbers. Like that it's human nature to feel any regret about putting scooter or do in this game and make a decision. Mean. When you make a lot of transactions I think you can you can you can milk day I mean I mean I think. The seasons turned out of place where do I couldn't. Understand all transactions are related M you know. Soul. It's it's way. Way too simplistic I think to me just say that because at that scooter addresses about a second the other officers it's. You know so it's. That was the decision we made me going into the season I think John Amos. The clear cut a player that the was gonna play a lot. Deservedly so. No we didn't we didn't see big. Role for scooter at that point and that's that's I was assistant and a good name and back up this season he's so there's a degree here like I putted a revenue this year and I don't know that you had the opportunity would have been years. You know men never us mom. Dylan and you know going into the all star re getting we were pretty content and what we had a deposition. We do you know there have been. I was hopefully coming back and ready to go one. You're still open and John they can you go on. And obviously it's a self serve reagans it's been tussle and those guys and you have to. You are now lassie. It's last. Last year I think. You had you left. Third. Well testing we've we've you know you're always. Euros then indictment and we had to evaluate what's next we had the project what's next to figure out what's next and think that's what's important Lyndon weekends. You know obviously to pass those and but but. Other things go and that's. Army said to dramatically different seasons. No and that's and it's and he's still in the first ones. You don't know on. Only a year ago and it makes jealousy this year. So. You know there's not an easy answer there. You know players players do you have tough seasons. That that's. Part of this you know gone unfortunately but. You know he's he's a young player he's shown the ability to build a really good things and as it was like this here. And I I do agreed to defensively. You know we got to keep that we have to keep seeing improvement offensively because that's that's part of the equation for service and he's got a he's got to be a you know me you know always side. Average to average measuring the senators are getting its average made 600 every position I think that's. It's a goal and I think we we had minimal of that original. And there have emperors manager Craig Counsell really homing in on the second base position in today's scoop for the skipper segment. From Miller Park. And again RD heard.
