I'm shooting low this week. A series win is all I ask.

So I can't post it because I'm at work, but Trevor Bauer is insinuating that the Astros are cheating by increasing their spin rate by using a foreign substance. Bauer finds it hypocritical that they are getting away with this because MLB would not let him use surgical glue to reinforce his stitches when he sliced his finger open playing with the drone.

Apropos of whatever...

The Mets have never won 17 games in the month of April...UNTIL NOW!

But it is not their winningest April. The '86 juggernaut went 13-3, its 1988 little brother went 15-6, and the doomed 1985 & 2006 teams went 16-8.

Crazy lineup day on the north side of Chicago.

Rizzo 1b
Bryant 3b
Zobrist 2b
Russell ss
Schwarber lf
Caratini c
Heyward rf
Happ lf
Hendricks p

Rizzo was unreal at leadoff last year, maybe that'll snap him out of whatever the #### is wrong with him (25OPS+). That, or Joe saw Black start his terrible 1b at leadoff yesterday and tried to one-up him.

WILL THE PHILLIES ERA+ CONTINUE TO REGRESS TO THE MEAN? Seasonal ERA+ progression over the last 3 games since I put the jinx in effect by mentioning their unforetold 118:
118-117-109-106 over the last 3 days.

Anthony DiComo @AnthonyDiComo 19m19 minutes ago

Asked if he's upset about a Page Six report that had Matt Harvey out partying in Los Angeles the night before pitching in San Diego, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said:

"Usually I get upset if a report is unexpected. So I guess the short answer is no."


oof.

Braves running out the stat-nerd lineup again tonight

Albies 2b
Acuna lf
Freeman 1b
Markakis rf
Suzuki c
Swanson ss
Flaherty 3b
Soroka p
Inciarte cf

Also of note, Mike Soroka is making his MLB debut as a 20 year old. His call up gives Atlanta the three youngest players in the majors (Albies, Acuna, and now Soroka) on the same roster.

Best hitter batting third is decidedly not a statnerd thing.

Interesting. The Mets are toast. They always seem to get eaten up by guys making their MLB debut. Rickey, what's wrong with Newcomb? Or is he just gonna pitch tomorrow?
   14. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: May 01, 2018 at 04:26 PM (#5663865)
<i>Schwarber lf

Happ lf<i>

Oops. Happ is technically starting in CF, though he's not really a CF and he might make a play or 2 in LF.

Anybody else do a double-take after reading that name as "Mike Sirotka"?

Best hitter batting third is decidedly not a statnerd thing.


Player A: 293/341/647 (988), 169, 1.2
Player B: 314/437/559 (995), 177, 1.6

Player A is significantly faster and a better base runner.
   21. PreservedFish Posted: May 01, 2018 at 05:47 PM (#5663926)
I don't know who player A and player B are, but one of them is Freddie Freeman, and one of them is not.

Oh, is A Albies? Guess what? Best hitter in the leadoff spot isn't statnerdy either anymore. Get with the program old man! Also, putting the short fast 2B in the leadoff doesn't exactly scream unconventional thinking, does it?
   22. The Interdimensional Council of Rickey!'s Posted: May 01, 2018 at 05:55 PM (#5663933)
Albies leading off is a no-brainer. He is hitting as well as Freddie and is a far better base runner. Putting Acuna between Ozzie and Freddie gives him the most protected spot in the order as he breaks into MLB. If this isn't stat-nerdy you nerds are morons.
   23. PreservedFish Posted: May 01, 2018 at 05:57 PM (#5663935)
So worrying about "protection" is now stat nerdy?

Dude, you're, like, 96 percent less likely to get her knocked up if you use protection. That's totally a stat.

It's my opinion that every fan thinks this about his team.


Yep.... I know that Cardinal fans feel this way...of course over the past year plus the Cardinals are 6-17 against rookie pitchers, including being no hit/perfect game through 6 2/3rds inning earlier in the week. (of course that was a stat from fsmw... I don't know how accurate that is..)
   26. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 06:25 PM (#5663950)
Just for fun I looked it up for the Mets since 2010.. they have faced a guy making his major league debut 20 times... they(the Mets) have a record of 13-7 against them. Click Here

Having said that, in 9 of those games the Mets scored two or less earned runs against the starter... Matt Wisler and Sean Newcombe had the best games with a 68 game score....

In comparison the Cardinals have only had 12 debuts against them (6-6 record) and have three game scores higher then the 68 posted by Wisler and Newcombe... Click here. .
   27. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 06:40 PM (#5663961)
I guess it really matters how legitimate you think Acuna is...but it's hard to argue for a guy like him in the second spot as the stat nerdy solution. It sounds more like the traditional solution(which I don't disagree with) where you put your promising hitter in the spot that you think is going to be best to force the opposition to pitch to him (which is almost always the second spot in a traditional lineup as you have a good opb up front and the best hitter third, meaning that more opportunities where the opposition can't walk you without being in major trouble)

   28. PreservedFish Posted: May 01, 2018 at 07:03 PM (#5663968)
The real statnerd lineup would hit Freeman #2, because he's best. It might hit Albies #4, because he's the second best hitter, and has the big SLG numbers. And his speed is appropriate there because the cleanup hitter actually leads off more innings than any position other than leadoff. You never want to waste a good SLG hitter in the leadoff spot, and the #3 spot is only the 4th or 5th most important in the lineup, so it'll end up with someone like Flaherty or Swanson, probably. Actually Acuna might fit there nicely.

Swanson R
Freeman L
Acuna R
Albies S
Suzuki R
Markakis L
Flaherty R
Pitcher
Inciarte L

There, that's statnerdy. I'd rather have Markakis lead off but I don't like starting with lefty-lefty ... maybe you just live with it though, pretend you're teaching Swanson some leadoff skills or something.
   29. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: May 01, 2018 at 07:26 PM (#5663974)
Is stat-nerdy the new and sexy scientific ? if so, how does it relate to sucky Athletics innings, where everything goes wrong ?

Discuss !

Go Yankees ! Go Giants ! Go Mets ! Go Athletics ! Go Red Sucks !
   30. perros Posted: May 01, 2018 at 07:31 PM (#5663976)
I wouldn't want to pitch to Albies, Acuña, and Freeman in any order at the moment.
   31. Lassus Posted: May 01, 2018 at 07:33 PM (#5663979)
Just turned on game. WTF
   32. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: May 01, 2018 at 07:47 PM (#5663984)
It's May, time to type who is still hawt after early season predictions, and who basically just sucks the hell out of MLB.

My top 3 Hawt and Sawk !

Hawt :

Yankees (still #1 on my page, power, skill and with a lot of imagination: awesome coach)
Red Sucks (they are good, because my Yanks are HAWT. Like in the Movie Twilight. Sucks Good, coz Yanks good -wolves coz of vampires-)
Diamondbacks still (but probably will be changed to Arsetros)

Sawk :

Reds (no comment needed)
Tampon Bay Rays (no comment)
Padres (If you lose to the GIANTS in the 9th THAT way, you Sawk BIG TIME!!!)

Rizzo lead off hr on first pitch. He should always hit there.
   40. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: May 01, 2018 at 08:21 PM (#5664005)
I should add, Rockies went back to back to start the game. It was blackmons 9th road hr this year already.
   41. perros Posted: May 01, 2018 at 08:25 PM (#5664008)
Still early in Miami, but always a possibility vs the Marlins.

This is v. correct, as you did not extend "Nats history" prior to 2005 as some incorrectly do.
   50. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 01, 2018 at 08:49 PM (#5664030)
Red Sox down 1-0. Since Sale is on the bump, Red Sox offense decides no runs required today. Might wait until Chris goes 7+, gets pulled down 1-0, THEN score a run or two so reliever who throws 2/3 of an inning can get the W!
   51. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: May 01, 2018 at 08:51 PM (#5664032)
That's now 4 wind aided or assisted homers so far, 3 for the Rockies.
   52. Bote Man is no David Posted: May 01, 2018 at 08:54 PM (#5664034)
Max Scherzer and his wet newspaper just turned around a 96mph fastball into LF to drive in Howie Kendrick from 3B. 7-0 Nats. Now the only question is: who will protect Max in the lineup??

Jorge Castillo @jorgecastillo
Max Scherzer has a hit in five of his seven starts this season. He's batting .263. RBI single makes it 7-0.

#NoDH
   53. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 01, 2018 at 08:54 PM (#5664035)
Sox now down 2-1 after Moreland(yes, Moreland again) homers. Need to take advantage of Moreland good batting before he goes full glacial.

Doesn't sound good:
Coley Harvey, ESPN Staff Writer

Here's the update on Jordan Montgomery: the Yankees start left tonight's game after the first inning with left elbow tightness. He'll return to New York tomorrow, and will be evaluated by Dr. Chris Ahmad.
   55. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:14 PM (#5664048)
Clapper, no that doesn't sound good. I never like hearing about injuries, no matter the team or player.
   56. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:21 PM (#5664056)
Chris Sales says thx to Red Sox lineup who manage to scratch out a 3rd run in last half of the 7th to line him up for the W!

Sale coming out to pitch the 8th. Starting on 96 pitches. Not a lot of K's today, been a bit scratchy.
   57. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:31 PM (#5664065)
oops, wrong on Sales, Barnes started the 8th and now the Royals have something cooking. Red Sox could really use DP ball.
   58. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:34 PM (#5664071)
Cardinal announcers are trying to forgive Ozuna for a ####### stupid ass decision defensively... second and third two outs... fly ball to left.... In between Ozuna, it's going to require a great catch to get the out, a safety play allows one run, a mistake allows two runs.. Ozuna goes for the third option.... Rick Horton Cardinal announcer defends the decision, but it was just a piss poor play to put it honestly, he really wasn't that close to making the spectacular play, and ended up in a poor position to defend against the ball going past him.
   59. Lassus Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:36 PM (#5664072)
This really is one of those games you know you're going to lose from around the fourth pitch.
   60. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:37 PM (#5664073)
Dan Mclaughlin really doesn't get the dollar signs of the DH, he's trying to make the argument that the players realize that the DH is more profitable than without the DH, and he doesn't seem to realize something that we have known around here for a decade... the money doesn't go to the DH, the money comes from the rest of the team... the Al on average isn't spending more money on players than the NL... I mean there aren't actual DH's in baseball, how many teams right now have a dedicated DH who's salary is based upon them being a DH?
   61. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:50 PM (#5664082)
Cardinals one batter over the minimum so far...
   62. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:52 PM (#5664086)
The umps have been huddling for a few minutes trying to figure out if the Rockies should be charged for one or two mound visits. Remind me again the point of this rule...

This has been the worst strike zone I've seen this year. Laz go away.
   63. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 09:53 PM (#5664087)
Thebumps have been huddling for a fee minutes trying to figure out if the Rockies should be charged for one or two mound visits. Remind me again the point of this rule...


It makes it feel like MLB is actually trying to do something about the pace of play, while actually not bothering to do ####### #### about the pace of play.

It's simple, it doesn't require an iq, if you want to fix pace of play you do one thing, and one thing only, you make each plate appearance as quick as possible. This requires a clock, this requires umpire buy in.... 12 seconds with men on base maximum per pitch.... it's that ####### simple. That alone will save 10 minutes per game and improve the pace...

Any other proposal is a proposal along the margins, generally being made by idiots who don't like baseball.

Jose Reyes played with Acuna's FATHER in the minors, Mets announcers note - just after Reyes flies out to Acuna the younger to end a 3-2 game with the tying run ready to score (though the OF looked like a wobbly drunk looking for a lamppost before catching it).

Kimbrel coughs up homer to Gordon, now 3-3 in Boston. 1st homer of the year for the mighty Gordon.
   68. karlmagnus Posted: May 01, 2018 at 10:03 PM (#5664096)
Kimbrel's ability to blow saves is quite remarkable. So was Papelbon's, I remember. Boston closers can have excellent stats, but lose far more games than they should.
   69. rconn23 Posted: May 01, 2018 at 10:09 PM (#5664101)
Verlander being better than ever at 35 is really something.

Kimbrel's ability to blow saves is quite remarkable. So was Papelbon's, I remember. Boston closers can have excellent stats, but lose far more games than they should.


How many has he blown, you assume a rate of about 3 per 30 saves on average for an elite closer, a little bit less (around 85% ) for other closers... Kimbrel at 92%(before tonight) as a Red Sox, is pretty much evidence of an elite closer. (in comparison, Mariano Rivera was 89%)
   71. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: May 01, 2018 at 10:24 PM (#5664109)
Everyone always thinks their closer is worse than they are, or fails more spectacularly than they actually do.
   72. Panic Posted: May 01, 2018 at 10:28 PM (#5664116)
Won't get much coverage because it didn't end up costing Boston, but Vasquez gave two KC runners a base each because he used his mask to scoop a ball closer to him in the 10th. I assume it was just a brain cramp, but the ball was just sitting there only a foot or two away - just one of the dumbest things I've seen in a while.
   73. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 10:29 PM (#5664117)
how in the #### is Ozuna a gold glove winning centerfielder that has 11 career stolen bases... not saying he should be stealing all the time, but the point is that your elite centerfielders generally have a bit of speed and if Yadier is outstealing you on an average year, then you just don't have the speed to be a centerfielder.
   74. cardsfanboy Posted: May 01, 2018 at 10:31 PM (#5664118)
Yadier showing off the speed with an infield "single". .... Thanks to home scorekeeping.

Yankees did well to hold a very good Astros team scoreless through 8 innings, in a game their starting pitcher left after 1 inning with an elbow issue, no less. Top of 9th: Judge single, Didi double & Gary Sanchez HR put victory in sight. 3-0.
   79. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 01, 2018 at 11:02 PM (#5664153)
I wouldn't have bet a dime against a dollar that both of these games tonight would come out right. Just need 3 outs from Chapman and 3 outs from Herrera.

EDIT: No such luck. Goddam jinxed it.

Betances, Robertson and Chapman's combined line: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 W, 8 K. I can't remember 3 innings where all 3 of them showed such total command. And Germán was pretty sporty himself.

Yadier's ops is hurt because of the walk off single, which was clearly a double...

Well, 7-4, but close enough!

EDIT: Alas, the Royals seem determined to make the bottom of the 13th inning "interesting".

It wasn't pretty, but the Royals hang on, 7-6 in 13.
