We talk to Ben Frederickson this morning about John Mozeliak’s press conference yesterday. Ben’s take- not nearly as many answers as Mo wants right now. Baseball is making incredibly difficult decisions right now because they have to. Normally, MLB is meticulous is their planning so not having clear calendar is especially trying. We dive into the human aspect of it too. Can Kim go back to South Korea to see his wife and kids? We switch gears to hockey and discuss a potential playoff format and Pietrangelo’s future... Ben thinks this dent in the NHL’s wallet will be a detriment to him. A disappointment for the Illini and teams across college this spring. How did Coach Underwood team take the news that March Madness was cancelled? How does it affect next season? Could college football be the next to get cut? How will colleges survive losing the income of NCAA football? Listen here:

Welcome back! It's been tough finding topics to talk about that aren't completely up in the air along with the rest of the game right now. So, to alleviate the issue, we've got a pair of special guests on tap for this one. We recorded on Sunday night, before the full release of MLB's new tentative plans for a partial season based in Arizona on Monday the sixth of April, but as it turns out we anticipated a lot of the potential issues in advance. Cody Stavenhagen, Tigers beat writer for the Athletic Detroit joins us on the podcast to talk about his impressions of spring training and hopes for the season prior to the COVID-19 delay. We're also joined by friend of the pod Mark Gorosh, host of the Don't Call it a Rebuild, It's a Team Build podcast (we need to shorten this moniker btw) over on the Tigers Minor League Report network of pods. Discussion started with MLB's contingency plans for a partial season and the problems and possible opportunities at hand as a result. We looked into the potential impact of the Tigers revamped player development department, though it's still going to be some time until their impact, for good or ill, becomes tangible. Stavenhagen also gives us his impressions of Casey Mize and some of the other standouts he observed down in Lakeland a few weeks ago, though it now feels like it's been months since we saw any action. Finally, the last half hour or so is largely a quick discussion of some of the music, books, movies, and tv shows getting us through the lockdown. Learn more about your ad choices.

John and Joe are joined by Baseball America's lead MLB Draft writer and National Writer, Carlos Collazo. Collazo lends his depth of knowledge to discussion on how the vastly condensed five-round draft, with the potential of 10 rounds at most, will impact MLB and the Mariners in particular. Collazo and the hosts address the developmental merits against the big picture drawbacks of MLB's plans to contract MiLB affiliations, and how that plan seems all the more likely with a shortened draft and disrupted season already in place. Turning to cheerier topics, the three discuss opinions on a few of the players best suited for the Mariners when they pick at No. 6 this year, including LHP Reid Detmers, LHP Garrett Crochet, RHP Max Meyer, OF Zac Veen, and OF Garrett Mitchell. For those interested in the nuances of putting together scouting reports, there's also a discussion on the usefulness of player comps in translating scouting to a wider audience vs. the dangers of portraying something narrowly applicable or merely possible as a likely outcome.

Today's word of the day is 'scenario' as in if the NBA comes back this season how does it finish. Could it go straight to the playoffs? Maybe a preseason like I suggested. Where did this idea to have a quarantined village in Vegas or the Bahamas come from (0:06)? MLB will pay minor league players until May 31st. That was just announced today, but what does it mean? There are some pros and cons that need to be discussed (10:15). Juventus players agreed to a 90M euro pay reduction. Let me explain what this means (17:17). So You Wanna Talk To Samson? Someone asked me about a predicament they're currently in.

Review - Gemini Man (28:56). MLBeard Challenge Day 16: Minnesota Twins (32:07). Also, let's have a quick discussion about Dr. James Andrews (the Tommy John man) (35:12). Role playing is fun!

Today's word of the day is 'delusional' as in Colin Kaepernick must be crazy if he thinks he's getting NFL money from the XFL (0:06). Why does there always have to be a scapegoat?

Today's word of the day is 'carpe diem'... When I got word of Kobe Bryant's death the first thing I thought of was work (0:06). This is how the NBA reacted and why it reacted this way (3:21).

Let's break down every single detail we know about the Mookie Betts trade (1:15). First up is the Dodgers part of the trade. The Red Sox didn't want this trade to happen before because of the Twins pitcher they would have received... who is now going to the Dodgers. Justin Turner shares his thoughts on the trade via Twitter and I need to laugh at this (14:10). The Dodgers-Angels trade for Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling fell through and here is why (15:53). Did a Houston Astros intern start the sign-stealing scandal (20:54)? Time for some codebreaking and dark arts talk. Oscars! Oscars! Oscars!

iTunes  Stitcher Google Spotify During this episode of Ahead of the Curve, I interviewed Monte Lee, Head Coach of Baseball at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. Coach Lee shares his passion for wanting to become a coach from a young age, the methods he uses to communicate with his team players and staff, how he goes about designing practices, and the importance of players being intentional with their pitching and hitting.    Episode Highlights:  What are the main reasons that Monte Lee became a baseball coach?  What does Monte do to instill his teach culture?  What does his fall training session look like?  How does his mind work with practice design?  Does he use technology with his practices?    How does he intentionally develop his staff?  What are some of the rules that Monte Lee has?   What does a typical practice plan look like?  What are they doing in the batting cages? Does Monte Lee have a system for communicating within the team setting with players that don’t play regularly?    What advice would he give to first-year coaches? What is something that he digs into that works for learning and improving?   What is something that his players love to do in practice?  What is something he may do that other coaches may not do?  Which resources have been helpful to Monte?   3 Key Points: He tries to eliminate the fear of failure. It is more about the process, not the result.    You can learn so much from just sitting back and listening.   When you do say something to a player, make sure that it matters.    Tweetable Quotes: “Got into coaching, really to be honest with you, I never thought about doing anything else. I just knew from a very young age.” – Monte Lee (00:47) “I can remember being 15-years-old and my high school baseball coach asking me what  I wanted to do when I grew up, and I told him I want to come back and be the head baseball coach.” – Monte Lee (00:54) “The first thing I tried to instill in our guys is that everything that we do on a baseball field...we are on offense.” – Monte Lee (03:28) “We want our pitchers to throw every pitch with conviction and intent. We want our infielders when they are throwing the ball across the field to throw the ball with intent. We swing the bat with the intent to do damage.” – Monte Lee (04:23) “I would hope that if you were to ask anybody who ever worked for me, I always wanted to make sure that everybody on my staff feels appreciated and that their voice is heard. We have staff meetings at least once a week.” – Monte Lee (21:22) “We go over our team rules and our expectations and I have them sign it. It is pretty detailed. But it is pretty simple too. In a nutshell, it is just, be a good citizen.” – Monte Lee (25:29) “We have two square cages and two long cages at Clemson and we have one cage that we kind of call our data cage.” – Monte Lee (037:16) “You care about them and sometimes you probably don’t communicate with them as much as you would like to just because you feel bad for them. You feel bad that they are not getting the opportunity.” – Monte Lee (43:05)   Resources Mentioned:  Ahead of the Curve Podcast Twitter: @AOTC_podcast Monte Lee: Twitter Email for Monte Lee: montel@Clemson.edu
