HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

Last night the Phillies had two runners caught in rundowns on one play. A double-play rundown. That... should never happen.

This was with a 1-run lead in the 8th so I would have been a BIT upset if the Pirates then tied it up. Good job by George Kontos stepping off the mound to throw to first with 1 out and somehow ending the inning.
   3. The Yankee Clapper Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:00 PM (#5657524)
ALL RISE! Aaron Judge has homered. #6, 2-0 Yankees.
   4. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:07 PM (#5657525)
I don't believe in looking at the standings this early in the season and making any conclusions, but looking at the NL Central and you have 3 teams that have been absolutely beating up on the reds...everyone in the NL central has better than .500 record except the Reds.
   5. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:28 PM (#5657529)
Cardinals broadcast just said "Homer Bailey has not had a win against the Cardinals since 2014, he has the most losses among active pitchers against the Cardinals with 14." (I haven't verified the comments yet, just thought that was something interesting)

Edit: Just looking at Homer Bailey's bb-ref page, he's only gotten 8 wins since 2014 so that doesn't sound too surprising.
   6. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:31 PM (#5657530)
Yadier is batting second, single up the middle and a straight up steal of second base.
   7. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:34 PM (#5657532)
Reds are undefeated against the Cubs this year.

Cubs have already been shut out 3 times and have 2 other losses where they've only scored 1, yet they're first in the NL in runs/g, obp, slg and ops.
   8. Random Transaction Generator Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:37 PM (#5657535)
Stroman just did some Matrix-esque play to snag a hard hit ball up the middle to start the double play.

That's why he's got a Gold Glove...
   9. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:42 PM (#5657539)
they're first in the NL in runs/g, obp, slg and ops.


This is the stuff I love about bb-ref and how easy it is to get this type of data. Whenever I'm bored for even five minutes, even though it's early in the season, I'll just peruse the stats looking for anything that 1. is a positive for my team 2. is a surprise in the league or 3. just plain interesting. (and you forgot to mention leading the league in hbp by a huge margin)
   10. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:45 PM (#5657541)
DeJong just has a badass bat.

Cubs have already been shut out 3 times and have 2 other losses where they've only scored 1, yet they're first in the NL in runs/g, obp, slg and ops.


All teams do poorly in their losses and much better in their wins (Duh!), but the Cubs seem pretty extreme in this regard. In their losses, they have scored 19 runs, 2.4 R/G. In their wins, they have scored 85, 9.4 R/G.

And that's with Rizzo missing 8 games so far!
   13. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:47 PM (#5657544)
my gf walks into the room as Dejong hits the homerun, and looks at the score and the team "Reds again, isn't this getting a bit boring?"
   14. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:49 PM (#5657546)
Yadier is batting second, single up the middle and a straight up steal of second base.
Yadi should reinvent himself as a 30/30 player, just to be awesome.

Well, they've played the Pirates and pissed off Hurdle's baseball sensibilities. Seriously though, Bryant is getting hit more, both Baez and Contreras have been hit in the hands. A couple of teams have also already thrown up and in at javy, including Shaw last night. Cubs have yet to retaliate.
   16. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:50 PM (#5657549)

He's already awesome. :) future hofer. :)

That is a good point, Pirates routinely are among the league leader in hbp, so that might have something to do with the number.
   18. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: April 21, 2018 at 02:53 PM (#5657552)
I think you're probably right about the HOF. Well, at least he's better than Ray Schalk...

Did you see Clint's comments?

Carlos Martinez with his league leading 5th hbp as a pitcher....

Miggy A!

No, I wasn't paying attention. I bag on the Pirate philosophy of pitching inside even when it's clear their pitchers don't have the ability to do it without hitting people. Yet their fans argue that they shouldn't be blamed because it wasn't on purpose... When the reality it that it was on purpose, simply because they know that they don't have that level of control, and if you don't have that level of control, the odds of you hitting someone is very high, so yes, it's a philosophy that "we will hit people on accident, on purpose"
   23. NJ in NY (Now with Baby!) Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:01 PM (#5657562)
So, like...Aaron Judge REALLY is this good, huh?
   24. Where have you gone Brady Anderson? Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:02 PM (#5657563)
What’s the deal with Marcus Stroman? Why is he so terrible this year?
   25. The Yankee Clapper Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:02 PM (#5657564)
Third baseman Miguel Andujar, who struggled a bit when first called up, has been much better at the plate of late, and just hit a 3-run bases-clearing double, making it 7-1 Yankees. He can win the job permanently if he keeps this up.
   26. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:05 PM (#5657566)
“When a player does something out of line, there are one or two guys who go to him right away and say, ‘Hey, we don’t do that here. What are you thinking when you do that? Do you know what that looks like?’ ” Hurdle said. “Sometimes, guys don’t understand what it looks like. Usually, you’ve only got to show them once or twice what it looks like and they really don’t want to be that guy anymore.”

And then Hurdle brought up Baez. In the seventh inning on Wednesday, with a runner on second base and none out, Báez hit a high pop-up to shortstop Jordy Mercer and tossed his bat as he ran out of the batter’s box.

“Where is the respect for the game?” Hurdle said. “He’s hit four homers in two days, does that mean you can take your bat and throw it 15-20 feet in the air when you pop up, like you should have hit your fifth home run? I would bet that men went over and talked to him, because I believe they’ve got a group there that speaks truth to power.”

Hurdle also called out Cubs catcher Willson Contreras, who reacted angrily after taking a called third strike with two runners on base in the sixth inning. Contreras lingered in the box and held his arm out, signaling to umpire Dan Bellino that he thought the pitch was out of the zone.

“The catcher, I mean … he’s a talented young man,” Hurdle said. “There is a day, he would have been thrown out as soon as he (gestured) that the ball was high. Those are things you try to help your young players with as they go through it that’s not respect for the game, that’s not the way we do things here.”

   27. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:10 PM (#5657570)
Sounds like an ass.... he used to be a breath of fresh air as being one of the more modern guys, but I guess old fogeyism creeps into everyone in this game eventually. (Except Maddon who still acts like he's in his 30's)
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:19 PM (#5657573)
You have to love it when "good" Carlos Martinez shows up... 6 strikeouts, after 4 innings...2 walks, 1 hbp, and 1 hit on the other hand shows he's not fully on his game, but doing good enough.
   29. The Yankee Clapper Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:27 PM (#5657577)
So, like...Aaron Judge REALLY is this good, huh?

.343/.477/.643, 1.120 OPS at the moment. Might do a bit better if warmer weather ever arrives.
   30. Ziggy's screen name Posted: April 21, 2018 at 03:32 PM (#5657580)
So the catcher drops the third strike to Carlos Martinez. Does not tag him. Martinez walks back to the dugout and the ump calls him out, I guess for leaving the base path. Does the pitcher get credit for a strike out?
   31. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:02 PM (#5657602)
Apparently Wong isn't completely useless....
   32. The Yankee Clapper Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:02 PM (#5657603)
Uh, oh, this sounds pretty serious:
Bradford Doolittle, ESPN Staff Writer

The White Sox say that reliever Danny Farquhar suffered a brain hemorrhage during the sixth inning of last night's game, causing him to collapse in the dugout. Additional testing at Rush University Medical Center revealed that a ruptured aneurysm caused his brain to bleed. Farquhar is in stable but critical condition in the neurosurgical ICU unit at Rush. The team will be updating the situation as needed over the next few days.
   33. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:13 PM (#5657608)
32- he collapsed/fainted in the dugout right after he finished pitching. He has to be carried to the locker room. Was very scary and that isn't good.
   34. Tom Nawrocki Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:15 PM (#5657611)
Regarding the Cubs/Rockies game tonight: The good news is that it's warmed up sufficiently in Denver for the snow to turn into rain.
   35. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:26 PM (#5657623)
Third baseman Miguel Andujar, who struggled a bit when first called up, has been much better at the plate of late, and just hit a 3-run bases-clearing double, making it 7-1 Yankees. He can win the job permanently if he keeps this up.

Prediction: He will. And sooner rather than later. The only thing that stopped him last year was his injury.

This lineup's going to be a killer once it's fully healthy. Too bad the starters other than Severino average about 4 innings apiece, which no bullpen can ever cover over the long run. Sonny Gray is just a cluster####.
   36. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:29 PM (#5657627)
Not a fan of the pitching change to Lyons, and the result hasn't been good.
   37. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:35 PM (#5657629)
Finally, there is one legitimate example of poor managing by Matheny. There was no reason for Lyons to face his fourth batter. He threw 17 pitches yesterday, and was up to 17 again, both season high for him. He had poor control and arguably should have been pulled after the second batter but definitely after the third.

I know pitcher wins is not a big deal, but Carlos Martinez deserved to have a shot at the win.
   38. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:41 PM (#5657632)
Carpenter, Gyorko and Fowler all have 99 career homeruns... that is a bit of a weird coincident.
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:44 PM (#5657635)
Molina didn't like Dejong leading the team in homeruns, so he decided to join him. He's having one heck of a season so far this year.
   40. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:44 PM (#5657636)
Finally, there is one legitimate example of poor managing by Matheny.


Last night he had Hicks warm up twice, in the 7th and 8th, and didn't use him. The 2nd time I thought, great, he's going to show some confidence in the kid, let him close it with a 3-run lead --nope. So I figured he'd be unavailable today, but nope, there he is warming up again in the 7th while Lyons gives up 4 or 5 straight runners and a 3-run lead. Then he finally brings him in to get the 3rd out after it was apparent Lyons wouldn't be able to.

I mean, this is a 21-year-old kid who throws 102. WTF?
   41. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:47 PM (#5657637)
The 2nd time I thought, great, he's going to show some confidence in the kid, let him close it with a 3-run lead -


He's shown plenty of confidence in Hicks. He just has a bullpen filled with moving pieces that he is trying to work out their roles.

   42. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:52 PM (#5657639)
2nd time in Yadi's career he has a stolen base and a homerun in a game....
In Cardinal history, as a catcher.
Darrell Porter, Tim McCarver and Eli Marrero did it three times.
Carl Sawatski did it twice....and that is a name I have never ever heard of in my life.(he played for the Cardinals from 1960-1963--not bad numbers at all for a backup catcher )
   43. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:55 PM (#5657640)
I'm not so much criticizing MM for not letting Hicks close a game as I am for warming him up twice without using him, then damn near doing it again the next day.
   44. salvomania Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:55 PM (#5657641)
Jordan Hicks has thrown 1.1 innings of relief and has thrown 7 pitches. I like him.
   45. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:56 PM (#5657643)
Cardinal announcers are wondering if Hicks will be given a chance to pitch the ninth, and Brad Thompson nailed the logical, whether or not that happens is subject to manager approval... he pointed out that Hicks warmed up twice yesterday, and pitched today, that no matter what, he's likely to not be available for tomorrow, meanwhile Norris threw 28 pitches last night, so it might make sense to keep Hicks in there for another inning, he's a starter after all, so 20 or so pitches isn't going to be a strain on him(he only has 7 as of right now)
   46. salvomania Posted: April 21, 2018 at 04:58 PM (#5657644)
Carl Sawatski did it twice....and that is a name I have never ever heard of in my life.

I have his baseball card, probably a '60 or '61, and he's wearing those gray translucent horn-rimmed glasses that were popular back then...
   47. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:01 PM (#5657646)
I have his baseball card, probably a '60 or '61, and he's wearing those gray translucent horn-rimmed glasses that were popular back then...


His baseball reference page has probably a similar picture.

He was out of baseball after his age 35 season, after posting 116 ops+ as a backup catcher, over 227 games/582 pa over the previous 3 seasons.... I doubt a guy like that has a hard time finding a job in todays game.
   48. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:02 PM (#5657647)
Hicks in there for the ninth, I'm assuming he has no room for error. But this is the guy that most Cardinal fans think will be the closer for the team when September comes around.
   49. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:04 PM (#5657650)
Hicks cannot find the strike zone against Winker.
   50. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:04 PM (#5657651)
Barring a DP this is going to come down to Hicks vs. Votto. Ulp.
   51. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:05 PM (#5657653)
They haven't said if anyone is warming up, they have to be....and Billy Hamilton comes into the game as a pinch runner....ugh.... this is going to be a nail biter inning.
   52. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:08 PM (#5657656)
Still no mention of anyone warming up, which seems a bit weird. The purpose of the challenge I had assumed was to give Norris or someone a chance to warm up.
   53. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:11 PM (#5657660)
Nobody but Votto takes those 0-2 and 1-2 pitches and gets the call on both. Not a criticism of the ump, BTW.
   54. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:11 PM (#5657661)
damnit, he wasn't that far off on Votto, those were some tough pitches to lay off of...and I do think that last pitch might have been strike three, but it was too close.
   55. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:13 PM (#5657663)
DP from Gennett! Save for Hicks! Woo hoo!
   56. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:14 PM (#5657665)
Actually a win for Hicks, my mistake. It was tied when he (finally) came in.
   57. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:17 PM (#5657667)
Actually a win for Hicks, my mistake. It was tied when he (finally) came in.


Too bad you can't get a win and a save in the same game.
   58. salvomania Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:19 PM (#5657670)
Hicks now has 11.2 scoreless innings to begin his MLB career. He's allowed only 5 hits, but he's walked 8. I'll take that.
   59. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:24 PM (#5657672)
I do wonder why Hicks doesn't get more swings and misses, with a 100+ mph fastball and that slider.
   60. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:30 PM (#5657673)
Molina with a single, a walk, a steal, and the game-winning HR -- catching a day game after a night game at 35. Please, Mike, sit him tomorrow.
   61. Perry Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:33 PM (#5657674)
Tomorrow is where LaRussa would always play the B-squad; his aim was to win series (done) while keeping the regulars fresh and the reserves sharp. Matheny doesn't manage that way.
   62. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 05:55 PM (#5657683)

I don't believe in the "B-squad" but I do think that probably tomorrow we'll see O'neil, Pena and Garcia getting starts(in place of Ozuna, Molina, Wong, and Pham playing instead of Bader--but that is because Pham is healthy)
   63. cardsfanboy Posted: April 21, 2018 at 06:21 PM (#5657690)
ALL RISE! Aaron Judge has homered. #6, 2-0 Yankees.


Tied with Yadier Molina and fellow sophomore, Paul Dejong.
   64. Crispix Attacksel Rios Posted: April 21, 2018 at 06:25 PM (#5657691)
Mike Schmidt is pretty good as the third guy in the booth on these weekend games. Way better than John Kruk. Anyone who knows who John Kruk is and hasn't listened to him color-commentate will be shocked by how boring he is.
   65. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: April 21, 2018 at 07:18 PM (#5657701)
This lineup's going to be a killer once it's fully healthy.


Add some Gleyber to the mix ... he was just called up.
   66. Howie Menckel Posted: April 21, 2018 at 07:48 PM (#5657710)
Jose Reyes finally got a hit, and our long national nightmare is over!

Apparently Dexter Fowler once, during a long slump, tweeted, "Dexter will get a hit today" over and over. Jose did the same thing today, and it worked.

he promptly stole second, moving him within one of Barry Bonds for 33rd on the all-time steals list.
   67. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 07:57 PM (#5657715)
Cespedes has struck out 45% of his AB this year.
   68. JJ1986 Posted: April 21, 2018 at 07:58 PM (#5657717)
I'm watching the Braves broadcast because I have it muted and didn't care to switch and they are doing split screen with their announcers talking during the game. I don't get it.
   69. The Yankee Clapper Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:05 PM (#5657720)
Add some Gleyber to the mix ... he was just called up.

Looking forward to seeing him play. It's a shame the Yanks had to give up Aroldis Chapman to acquire Torres. Chapman could have really helped the Yankees last season and this . . . oh, wait.
   70. Bote Man is no David Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:16 PM (#5657725)

The Cubs will not be no-hit today at Coors.
   72. Walt Davis Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:31 PM (#5657730)
Hey Bote Man, the David Bote era has begun in Chicago.
   73. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:46 PM (#5657740)
Bote is back ? Where have you been ?
   74. Walt Davis Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:47 PM (#5657742)
And Bote doubles in his first ML PA ... then oddly gets caught stealing 3rd on a 2-2 pitch to Darvish (who swung and missed). I wonder whose idea that was, it doesn't seem very bright.
   75. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:48 PM (#5657743)
Stealing third should be forbidden ! @frigginBarves
   76. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:50 PM (#5657745)
Wow, weird call, GO METS !
   77. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:50 PM (#5657746)
This went in the Mets favor but I actually hate the outs on stolen bases when the guy is safe initially but gets called out because he gets of the bag. It's just annoying to me.
   78. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:52 PM (#5657748)
Freddy Freeman is so good.

The Toddfather is so good.

Jinxed him.

If Swanson actually is pretty good, and Acuna is as good as people think, the core of Freeman, Olbies, Swanson, and Acuna is depressingly good.
   82. Walt Davis Posted: April 21, 2018 at 08:59 PM (#5657752)
As Len and JD have pointed out, Darvish has dropped the hesitation leg kick tonight. That seems like a weird thing to try mid-season and I'm surprised how smooth he looks not doing it. I assumed that the only reason he did it was that it's something he picked up at some time long ago and can't really get rid of. But apparently he can just get rid of it. Anyway, so far so good.

If I were the Mets, I would buy Swanson and Olbies.

And maybe even McCutcheon !

Hmm, do you pull deGrom for a PH? 7 scoreless with 96 pitches, I wouldn't even though he's leading off but what do I know.

Sale on the bump for Red Sox today, lineup will try to score as few runs as possible to make it fun for Chris as per usual.

Sale having trouble finding the strike zone...

Sale radar back working, K's Piscotty after starting 3-0 count.

The Mets now have the bases loaded, without getting the ball out of the infield, and there's nobody out. Unfortunately, Cespedes is the one hitting so he'll probably hit into a triple play or we are lucky just stikeout.
   90. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:26 PM (#5657770)
Cespedes is so awful. Thankfully, Cabrera is not.
   91. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:29 PM (#5657772)
The Braves are playing bad defense.
   92. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:38 PM (#5657776)
How can you walk the lead-off hitter with a three run with the top of the order up? Ramos is going to blow this.

#64, Kruk is incredibly boring. Also plays the dumb ole country boy shtick, which I find, well, dumb.

Larry Walker vs Randy Johnson: 393/485/571 in 33 PA
   95. JJ1986 Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:43 PM (#5657785)
Ramos, you have to throw strikes.
   96. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:44 PM (#5657786)
That's so awful. How can you walk two hitters and put the tying runs on base for Freddie Freeman. Albies had like two walks on the year and Ramos walks him on 4 pitches. That's terrible.
   97. Walt Davis Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:44 PM (#5657787)
That's two bad baserunning decisions by the Cubs today. The other players have to realize that they are not as beloved by the baseball gods as Javy and their bad decisions will not be rewarded. :-)
   98. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:47 PM (#5657788)
Blevins is a LOOGY who isn't getting lefties out. Useless right now.
   99. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: April 21, 2018 at 09:52 PM (#5657794)
The fact that Callaway went to Familia to get this out here despite a lefthanded hitter being up tells you how much confidence he has in Blevins.

Chris Sale kind of looks human this year and I do not like it.
