4-10-2013 OMNICHATTER

Omnichatter. It’s where the primates gather to discuss baseball games as they happen. Assuming, of course, they don’t get distracted by random bits of other pop culture or the fact that there is actually a ballplayer named Brad Peacock.

The forecast for St Louis doesn't look promising for Reds-Cards...

Looks good here... nary a cloud in sight.

Is it unusual for a season to start out with no team enjoying a 4-0 (or 0-4) start? It just seemed a little weird that no team made it more than one game through the second series of the season with a perfect record.
   7. cardsfanboy Posted: April 10, 2013 at 02:46 PM (#4409999)
David Freese with his first hit of the season... :) Sure he's no Pete Kozma, but it's good to see him in the lineup.

I think Barry Zito is on his way to a few very good seasons, because he is learning to work within the constraints of his low velocity, instead of trying to force a few extra miles per hour at the expense of location. Who could have imagined that, in 2013, Zito would be more reliable than Lincecum?

Particularly weekday rain delays.

Beltran with his first extra base hit of the season... Team is continuing their trend of scoring runs with two outs.

Define "very good" -- his SF ERA+ of 92 is certainly useful for a durable starting pitcher. But I'm not seeing him getting any better than that at this point.
   16. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: April 10, 2013 at 03:23 PM (#4410052)
I think a "very good season" would be that useful ERA+ for 200 innings. Which he did in 2010.

BB-ref reports that he had a 4.15 ERA in 2010, good for a 94 ERA+. Then in 2012 he had a 4.15 ERA, good for an 84 ERA+. Did the NL get that much worse in that period, just because Prince Fielder left?

I'd say number three starter on a decent staff, number four on a very good staff. I think he can push that ERA number closer to the mid-nineties in the next couple of seasons. His control is a little better. Also, just watching him pitch, it seems to me he's become a little more cerebral and aware of his stuff. I think he's going to end up being one of those wizardly left-handers who hang around forever.

Average runs scored for the league went down. 2012 4.22 rpg vs 2010 4.33.

Not sure about any park effects that might have changed it also.


Matt Adams with a homerun to make it 6-0 Cardinals. He's doing his damndest to ensure he gets everyday playing time. He has 9 hits for the year(14 plate appearances) tied for second most on the team(most starters have 30+ plate appearances)

Matt Carpenter early candidate for MVP.... :) 8-0 off of his first homerun of the season... I like having a secondbaseman who can hit.

Just need enough runs to give our bullpen a chance to keep it close.

Random comparison...

Barry Zito
w/ Oakland: 1430 IP, 125 ERA+
w/ Giants: 1013 IP, 92 ERA+ (K/9 down 0.6; BB/9 up 0.5)

Vida Blue
w/ Oakland: 1945 IP, 118 ERA+
w/ Giants: 1131 IP, 99 ERA+ (K/9 down 0.5; BB/9 up 0.7)

Dexter Fowler is out of the lineup for the Rockies this afternoon, which means that the only player who has started all nine games is Carlos Gonzalez. One thing you have to say about Walt Weiss, he is bound and determined to use his entire roster.

Do the Orioles have to put Jones on the 40 man? When I saw this my first reaction is they were freeing up a spot for...something.
   26. Russlan is fond of Dillon Gee Posted: April 10, 2013 at 04:08 PM (#4410088)
People were looking at the minor league rosters and seeing a c. Jones and thought Chipper was coming back as a left handed reliever. The Braves got tired of answering the question.

Excellent goal by barca there.

After hearing over and over again what a great park it is, I'm headed to Pittsburgh for the Friday game against the Reds (weather permitting). Looks like we can bring food into the ballpark, any suggestions for the area? Alternatively, anything in the park that we must see/eat? I watch Sunday Night Football so I am aware of Primanti Bros.
   29. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: April 10, 2013 at 04:36 PM (#4410111)
The O's needed an extra outfielder due to the injury to Nolan Reimold, and had too many relievers and wanted to keep Rule 5 pick TJ McFarland. They have been shopping Ayala for a few weeks now. Chris Dickerson replaces Ayala on the roster.

Angels sign OF Brad Hawpe to a minor league deal.
   30. cardsfanboy Posted: April 10, 2013 at 04:37 PM (#4410112)
Jake Westbrook, this year's Kyle Lohse? 2 starts, 0.00 era, 15 2/3rds inning, 1 cg, 1sho.

Jake Westbrook don't need no stinkin' bullpen.
   32. flournoy Posted: April 10, 2013 at 04:39 PM (#4410115)
From the Braves' perspective, Luis Ayala is better than Cristhian Martinez. So if he's available for a minor league LOOGY, then make the deal. Improve the pen. Why not?
   33. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: April 10, 2013 at 04:40 PM (#4410116)
Walt Weiss continuing the Rockies experiment of only allowing his starting pitchers to throw 60 pitches. He's pulling Jeff Francis at 60 pitches.

7-0 Giants.

In the 2nd inning.
   34. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: April 10, 2013 at 04:42 PM (#4410121)
I wonder if it's such a great idea to give Zito this huge of a run support... will be interesting to see how he copes with it. My favorite ticking timebombs : Zito and Romo.
Then again, maybe someone just simply forgot to set the timers.

Status: currently happy with a chance of beverages

I'm not sure it's true that ayala is better than martinez. Martinez seems to be remarkably durable.
   36. Crosseyed and Painless Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:20 PM (#4410142)
Blue Jays (EDIT) INTENTIONALLY walk the bases loaded with one out, then pull Buerhle, then Delabar walks the next two guys on 9 pitches total. Thanks!

Why Romo? Nothing about that slider says "fluke" to me.
   38. spike Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:26 PM (#4410145)
Martinez has been a pretty good rag-arm long man. Hate to lose that. Gearrin has options, so I would bet he goes down. When Venters comes back they'll have to do something permanent though.
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:31 PM (#4410150)
Yea!!! St Louis is tied for first place. If I was a Cubs fan, I would think that it actually means something. :)

Totally forgot about the existence of Anthony Varvaro. He should be the one to go, Martinez is semi-useful. Yeah, that's a pretty good price for a back of the bullpen upgrade.

   41. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:35 PM (#4410153)
The slider is fine... more than that actually ! I hope it works for the next 3 years the way it HAS been working. I just wonder how long it could take for a batter to adjust and take that extra step toward homeplate, expect the slider and tee off ... on the whole it's just Z&R that ignite a certain sense of frightendom/scareicity in my gut.
For the time being, all is well.

Status: thrilled, with a chance of cycle

Zito & Romo

   43. cardsfanboy Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:46 PM (#4410157)
I'm going to jinx Philly,Indian, Angel and Giants fans... The Cardinals took the lead in runs scored (passing the Reds, Yankees, Mets, A's and Rockies).

Yes it's of course early... but I'm always looking for something to be positive about.
   44. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:52 PM (#4410161)
In the past week I have seen more Little League style defensive brain farts than I recall happening in a similar period in the past.

- Espinosa's throw home getting nobody when he should have started a sure double play

- Rutledge(?) doing a similar thing yesterday against the Giants (youngster is his excuse?)

- a couple others that I have flushed from my brain to avoid meltdown

These are the kind of fundamentals that should be second nature at this level and should be reinforced by coaches during the season. I hope these guys straighten up and fly right. Am I expecting too much of Major League players? Am I misremembering and making too much of this?
   45. DA Baracus Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:53 PM (#4410162)
Whoa whoa whoa, the Astros scored 16 runs and had 22 hits last night? I do like that the guy who gave up 5 ER in 4 IP got the win.
   46. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:56 PM (#4410164)
Rockies themselves are going to a defensive clinic. I hope there are shots for what ails them or they might lose Tom Nawrocki.
   47. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: April 10, 2013 at 05:59 PM (#4410166)
good one also happened a few innings ago in SF, runner on second, Zito bunts, pitcher to 3B, no tag (nice non-force-out though!), throw to first, safe !

If you don´t expect the highest kind of professionalism and perfection of an MLB player, there would be something wrong.
Having played all my life though, and mostly at fixed positions, I have to admit that when suddenly at a different position, I seemed to have forgotten the most basic stuff, which would end in putting the blame on someone else instead of me.

So, a little mercy on thrown-in or switched players, but on the whole ... yes, it makes me meltdowny too !
   50. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: April 10, 2013 at 06:14 PM (#4410176)

My favorite part is that the winning pitcher's name is Paul Clemens, and he was making his MLB debut. I'm picturing Roger in a Bobby Valentine-certified glasses-and-mustache disguise.

I am watching the Tigers broadcast and at some point they put up a graphic showing three key additions for several teams. For the Angels, it went: Josh Hamilton, Tommy Hanson and then, the oddest possible choice, Brendan Harris.
   53. boteman is not here 'til October Posted: April 10, 2013 at 06:56 PM (#4410195)
Well, fans (and others) attending the Giants game today got a real treat: a rare non-freezing day with enjoyable winning baseball. If you didn't go it looks like you missed out on a good day.

Giants shut out the Rockies 10-0, half of which was due to the Rockies putrid defense.

Hot in the city: White Sox catcher stands up between pitches to empty the sweat out of his helmet, I thought he was emptying a water bottle. Gnats flitting around the heads of the pitchers in our Nation's Crapital tonight. What did the groundhog say about an early Summer? Or is that something we ask the hedgehog???

You know, Harper may be too aggressive on the basepaths sometimes, but I have to love how he's ALWAYS trying to take the extra base. Harper just ran through a stop sign from the 3B coach and made it...easily.
