Re: MLB 2015 Week 2, Apr. 13-19

You guys might appreciate this. Did anyone catch the Brewers radio broadcast yesterday against the Cards? Bob Uecker was joined in the booth by Bob Costas for the last four innings of the game, and...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Oh god, here we go with the "stealing signs" crap again. Reynolds, you're such a dipshit. "You're just doing your job, too bad if they don't like it." Really, that's doing your job? Coming up...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Storen is missing his spots pretty bad on just about every pitch. That bullpen better be ready. Last batter unless he gets an out.

Great pitch for the strike out, but on both of the last two...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

3 batted balls against Machi this inning probably traveled close 1200 feet total. Lucky that 2 of those were outs.

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Yeah, even assuming the throw was spot on, Desmond is still safe at 3rd.

Had he thrown to 1st, it's runners at 2nd and 3rd, 1 man out. They likely walk Cabrera to get to Fister (as well as set up...

Along the lines of last night's discussion of Yost getting roasted regularly for poor in-game decisions, so does Ausmus. But really, what's he supposed to do? He has no decent options out there in...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

TOOTBLAN (http://tootblan.tumblr.com/) alert!

Turns out the change in Expected Runs between 2nd and 3rd and none out, and 2nd with 1 out is 1.3 runs lost on the play. Nice 3rd base coach!

Well, both offenses went to bed early, then. Only 3 total hits after the 5th inning: 2 for the Angels and 1 (Big Fly ;) ) for the Royals. Both teams only got 4 hits in the game, and it took two...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Starting the inning with Duffy against Calhoun is fine to me, but Duffy's got significant L/R splits, though he's still pretty decent against righties.

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Rabbit time!

Ianetta 2014: 49 SB allowed, 21 CS = 70%. League average is 74%, so he's slightly better than average.

(and just like two nights ago, the steal is on the pitcher, not the catcher)

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Yes, he does, and he gets shit for it from the saber community (although his decisions last night were certainly more progressive). I was just hoping he'd not be so predictably old school this time....

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

I think that's "old" "by the book" thinking though. Save Holland in case you have a lead? Better to use him in the highest leverage situations, which unfortunately, just might now with the winning...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Okay, so now we'll see how Yost manages his bullpen. Does he bring in Holland for the bottom of the 9th because "that's always his inning"

OR

use other guys against the bottom of the order...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Bunting here seems silly. Good hitter at the plate. Best player in the game on deck. They just walk him if the bunt is successful.


SEE? Dammit, fools! Gave up an out for nothing.

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Not sure why Yost has Herrera warming in the bullpen, but lets Vargas face Trout and Pujols, then visits the mound to STILL not bring in Herrera. Why is he warmed up and ready to go?

But then...

Re: MLB 2014 Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Huh, so in both games today, one team scored 2 early runs on 2 solo bombs and didn't get a base runner until at least the 5th.

Cool. I guess. Eh, not really.
