Kyle McClellan was 4-0 in spring training and now 5-0 to start the regular season.

Re: MLB Monday, May 9, 2011

I don't even know who Kyle McClellan is. Then again, I'd never heard of JJ Barera before this playoff round either.

Re: MLB Monday, May 9, 2011

Mariners release both Milton Bradley and Ryan Langerhans. Bradley hit well in ST and at the start of the year but has fallen sharply since then, and I hear his OF defense is beyond atrocious. The guy has no future with your team and you have to pay him either way, so best to cut your losses now and see if you can find someone else who deserves some AB.

And that's how the Bradley-for-Silva trade ends. Probably would have been better to just release both before the trade as had been speculated, though Silva did help for half a season.

Bradley will get another shot somewhere. But he'll fuck that up too.

Anyone watching the Tigers game know why Scherzer left after 5?

Re: MLB Monday, May 9, 2011

I just noticed that the Rangers are a .500 team now, didn't they have a 9-1 start?

The recap didn't say he got hurt so my guess is that he started the 6th, let on a base runner or two and got pulled near the century mark.

Re: MLB Monday, May 9, 2011

Gardy is for the most part a good manager, but he's got a few annoying habits that he refuses to break, and tonight one of them may have cost his team a much-needed win. Late in a 1-1 game, Jason Kubel got a hit (I think there were two outs). Gardy decides to pull the league's #2 hitter and the ONLY guy in the lineup that is currently any sort of threat for a pinch runner.

I've bitched at Gardy for this exact thing in the past. He's in love with pinch running for his best hitters late in close games. It's a 1-1 game, Kubel gets a hit with (I think) two outs. What does our reigning Manager of the Year do with the league's #2 hitter and the ONLY threat in the entire lineup? Why, he pulls him out of the game. I never occurs to Gardy that a 1-1 game just might go into extra innings.

And wouldn't you know it, instead of having Kubel batting with two runners on, we have ... Alexi Casilla. Genius Gardy. Genius. For maybe a 1 percent better chance at scoring that run, you've planted your best (and only) real hitter's butt on the bench for the rest of a game. He's done it in the past. Burned him with Morneau in the playoffs several years ago, and it burned him again tonight. But he'll do the same dumb thing tomorrow if given the chance.

And the Rays are 20-14 after a 0-8 start.

He was reportedly completely dogging it in the OF this weekend letting balls drop in, then made a bad throw that let in two runs. So if he can't play the OF, he's a .218-hitting LH DH, and the Mariners already have a terrible LH DH right now in Cust. In addition to that roster logjam, he's further costing them roster flexibility because they never know when he's going to leave the game via injury or ejection. There was one recent game in which they were going to use a pinch runner but couldn't because Bradley had just been tossed.

That was the only inning of the game I watched and there were indeed two outs when Kubel got the hit.

I don't think it was that bad of a move. It's the 9th inning, you're on the road and you have Justin Morneau up, who I know is struggling but was 2-4 at that point and it's Justin Morneau you don't put it past him to bring in the run. And Casilla got into scoring position immediately upon entering the game too.

Of course, he could just as easily have been thrown out stealing. Truthfully, how much does inserting a pinch runner really increase the odds of scoring a run? A few percent? It's nowhere near the cost of taking out the ONLY hitter in your lineup who resembles a major league ballplayer.

2 outs and in the 8th I didn't like it. There are worse moves, but I wasn't happy at the time.
