HOW WILL SHOHEI OHTANI BE AWESOME TODAY?!

The Nashington Washinals have a 31-37 W-L record for a 0.456 winning percentage.

They would have to play 59-35 (0.628) in the 94 remaining games to end up with a 90-win record. Yet there are people who keep hanging on. They're a .450 team because that's their record. I see nothing on the horizon to convince me that they will improve from being a .450 team. All the beat reporters tout this 11-game home stand as "important"; well, Fedde gave up the early lead yesterday and Grack Zeinke never looked back. If not for the rain delay it's likely he would've gotten himself a Maddux, he was pitching that well.

If the Nats can't beat the middling-to-good teams, then it's a lost season. Might as well evaluate your system and plan for next year. Such a waste of talent, though.

HOW WILL A YANKEE STARTER FAIL TO GO DEEP INTO A GAME TODAY? Also ... HOW WILL THE YANKEES LOSE TODAY?

Funny to see him referred to as "Meghan King Edmonds's husband Jim".

Apparently Meghan King Edmonds was one of the 6 featured characters on Real Housewives of Orange County seasons 10, 11 and 12 (2015-2017). That makes her infinitely more of a celebrity to readers of People Magazine.

#2: You have the facts correct on the Nats record, and the required pace to win 90.
BUT.
a) who says they need to win 90? You? Fangrpahs and BBPros has ATL winning 90 and 88, respectively. Both sites suggest 87 wins would be enough for at least a wild card. Especially if Wash goes 57-37, thus beating many of their fores along the way.
b) You "see nothing on the horizon...". So you think they have played like a .450 team? The amassed evidence that a team's BaseRuns or Pythagorean record is superior than raw W-L to project the future doesn't work for you? BBPros has them as a "true" .500 team. I'll take their estimate.
c) Grack Zeinke is not exactly the poster child for a game against a middling team, methinks.
d) Fangraphs has the Nats with the 6th best postseason odds in the NL. Maybe they are wrong, but what teams typically take the advice of "Might as well evaluate your system and plan for next year" in that position?

Now, do I think Wash will win the NL pennant? Naah. But if you gave me 30-1 I would take it!!

stat of the day: who is the current leader in Runs Scored in the 2010s, with 873?
   9. TomH Posted: June 14, 2019 at 03:28 PM (#5852047)
heck, I will give the other half too; Who has the most RBI, 2010- 13Jun2019? With 919.

#8 - Trout?
   11. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 14, 2019 at 03:40 PM (#5852059)
I also guessed Trout for #8, and Pujols for #9.

Wrong on both counts.
   12. salvomania Posted: June 14, 2019 at 04:06 PM (#5852071)
#8 - Trout?

I think Trout catches this guy by the end of 2019...
   13. Master of the Horse Posted: June 14, 2019 at 04:08 PM (#5852073)
8--Ian Kinsler. Only because I grabbed this guy in fantasy like 3-4 times and typically paid off.
   14. TomH Posted: June 14, 2019 at 04:50 PM (#5852095)
ding ding!
   15. salvomania Posted: June 14, 2019 at 07:43 PM (#5852147)
Any Cardinal fans besides me notice that Carson Kelly is on pace to hit around 20 homers, slug around .500, and is up in WAR over Molina 1.1 to 0.2 so far in 2019? (and Molina has about 50 percent more PA so far this year)
   16. salvomania Posted: June 14, 2019 at 08:05 PM (#5852153)
Over his first six seasons as a regular Matt Carpenter hit 241 doubles: over 30 every year, over 40 three times, with a high of 55.

Tonight, he just hit his 9th of the year. The whole team is maddeningly mediocre, but Carpenter's failure to thrive in 2019 is probably the most painful sore spot.

HOW WILL THE YANKEES LOSE TODAY?


Shitty starting pitching will be my guess ...

What do I win?
   18. salvomania Posted: June 14, 2019 at 08:40 PM (#5852162)
Jose ".720 OPS" Martinez lines a 3-run PH homer off Matz in the 5th to put the Cardinals up 4-1. (Can't use Cardsfanboy's sobriquest of "Professional Hitter" until he gets that OPS back over .800.)

EDIT: And Matz---who I was sure was going to be lifted for a PH leading off the bottom of the 5th as he's around 100 pitches through 5---blasts a homer of his own, cuts it to 4-2.
   19. It was something about the man-spider and sodomy, Posted: June 14, 2019 at 08:52 PM (#5852167)
Pour one out for CC, I think he's at the end of the line.
   20. rconn23 Posted: June 14, 2019 at 08:55 PM (#5852169)
Yeah, I understood the one-year deal for CC given he's retiring and all he's done for the franchise, but he's hurting the team at this point. He's barely a five inning pitcher and if those five innings aren't quality, there's just not much he has to offer the team.
   21. Bote Man Posted: June 14, 2019 at 09:02 PM (#5852170)
I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've seen the word sobriquet used since 8th grade A.P. English, when it only appeared on a list of vocabulary words to learn. I'd bet Mrs. Smith is still a b|tch on wheels, though.
   22. It was something about the man-spider and sodomy, Posted: June 14, 2019 at 09:06 PM (#5852172)
[20] And the underlying stats are not trending in the right direction ...
   23. PreservedFish Posted: June 14, 2019 at 09:35 PM (#5852178)
8th grade A.P. English


You took AP classes in 8th grade?
   24. salvomania Posted: June 14, 2019 at 09:46 PM (#5852182)
Cardinals destroying Familia in the 8th inning after the Mets went up 5-4 in the previous inning. A DeJong homer to tie, then a 3-run Dex Fowler dong for an 8-5 lead.
   25. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 14, 2019 at 10:03 PM (#5852186)
Giancarlo Stanton & Aaron Judge both in line-up for AAA Scranton RailRiders tonight. Stanton, who HRed again, looks to be back with the Yankees Tuesday, with Judge a few days behind.

That's nice ... can they pitch?

What can I say? I'z just smrt.

"That's nice ... can they pitch?"

Don't worry, Severino will come back after the All Star break and Montgomery - at best a fifth starter - in September, and Cashman will give his "it's like adding two pitchers at the deadline" party line. Glad they signed a 36-year old pitcher to a three-year deal and pinched pennies on Keuchel. smh.

Watching Monty before the TJ, I though he had Pettite-light upside. After the injury (especially just coming back), you're likely right.

But fuuuuuuugh, at this point, I'd be happy with 5th starter quality, if it came with 6 innings a start.
   30. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: June 14, 2019 at 10:45 PM (#5852196)
Red Sox go all "Twins" on Baltimore, winning 13-2 with 6 homers. Now only 5.5 back of NY; and here comes the 18 wins out of 22 games run....he suggests hopefully...
   31. Bote Man Posted: June 14, 2019 at 11:11 PM (#5852198)
Cashman will give his "it's like adding two pitchers at the deadline" party line.

...that was popularized by Mike Rizzo after sitting on his hands at the deadline.

This zone is garbage or at least the ump is.
   33. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: June 15, 2019 at 12:24 AM (#5852205)
This zone is garbage or at least the ump is.


Haven't been watching, but is that why the Cubs are once again unable to hit with RISP?

Also, I don't understand the Kyle Ryan fascination. Bringing him in with runners on base seems like a guaranteed extra run for whoever he's replacing.

Mets committed $50m to jeurys Familia and Jed Lowrie. Yanks committed $51m to Adam Ottavino and DJ LeMahieu

Mike Montgomery with about as ugly of a hit-less, run-less inning as you can have. Three straight walks and then going to three balls on the eventual third out.
   36. TomH Posted: June 15, 2019 at 06:57 AM (#5852217)
Most RBI since 2010... Edwin Encarnacion!
   37. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 15, 2019 at 10:44 AM (#5852227)
In case you missed it, the Rockies bullpen gave up six runs in the ninth last night, and another five in the 12th, on their way to a 16-12 loss to the Padres. Mike Dunn (7.13 ERA, $7 million salary) and Wade Davis (3.44 ERA, $18 million salary) combined to allow six runs in the ninth.
