So...I know we're only 9 games in to the season, but count me as scared to death by the fact that Joe Mauer has already struck out 11 times.
   2. SoCalDemon Posted: April 11, 2014 at 10:49 AM (#4684405)
Well, his trendline looks pretty bad...from 2010-2013, he struck out in 9.1%, 11.4%, 13.7%, and 17.5% of his PA....so his 25% rate so far this year looks out of whack, but not by as much as you might think....definitely looks like his bat speed is slowing down.
   3. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: April 11, 2014 at 11:38 AM (#4684457)
#2--Yep. Didn't know the exact figures like that, but knew he was trending badly.

Did you trying turning him off and back on again?
   6. Sunday silence Posted: April 11, 2014 at 01:23 PM (#4684526)
rising strike out rates used to be a pretty good indicator that a player was falling off a cliff; but I have no idea now with the across the board increase in Ks.
   7. Joey B. Posted: April 11, 2014 at 01:38 PM (#4684532)
Marlins (Fernandez!) at Phillies (Burnett)

Good look Philly; you're going to need it. Glad we missed him!

Lorenzo Cain and Aaron Cook both have last names that are state abbreviations combined together CAIN = California (CA) + Indiana (IN). Pete Incaviglia almost makes it if you include the Virgin Islands - if only "GL" was a state.

These are the things I think about as I put my kids to bed.

Ok, Romo and Nomo are halfway there.
None of the Bell's work.
Johnny Sain had Indiana only.
Daniel Nava is close.
No dice on Phil Coke.

Bam! Cory WADE! done

So I'm pretty bummed about Avisail but I'm pretty damn pumped about Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton and Marcus Semian and Daniel Webb and Matt Davison, so fine.

Jose Abreu is really good. The league is going to adjust to him: by walking him more.
   11. SoCalDemon Posted: April 11, 2014 at 02:22 PM (#4684565)
Re #6: Between 2004 and 2011, his strikeout rate was 9.9%, with no year above 11.6%. In 2012 he struck out at a rate 39% above this baseline. Last year, he struck out at a rate 76% higher than this baseline. In 2004, the AL struck out 16.45% of the time; in 2013 19.76% of the time, and increase of 20% (using the earliest year, with I am assuming the lowest strikeout rate). So even in the context of rising strikeouts, this does not look good for Mauer.

I hate facts that make me feel old... I can remember as a very young child, it was still relatively common to use something like "Ind." for Indiana rather than IN when addressing a letter... hell... letter... dammit... stop!

speaking of current trends, how are the new home plate rules working? Are there any controversial plays? I havent seen enuf to tell.
   20. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: April 11, 2014 at 04:47 PM (#4684696)
#19--Every single reasonably close play at the plate gets officially reviewed, both to see if the runner was actually safe or out AND to see if the catcher illegally blocked the plate.
   21. Dandy Little Glove Man Posted: April 11, 2014 at 04:51 PM (#4684698)

Though not challengeable, this kind of play is reviewable


That quote is from the link in #23 and that's...holy crap. The umps can review it but the manager can't challenge it? WTF?

Bobby Wine's son made the majors, I never knew that. (Wine qualifying of course.)

Was that Robbie Wine? I remember him with the Astros, I think. Good defensive catcher, but couldn't hit at all, IIRC.

That goes contradictory to the rules which specifically states....

Each Club will receive one (1) Manager Challenge to start each game. A Manager may challenge as many reviewable calls within a single play as he desires using one challenge.


Pretty clearly states if a play is reviewable, it's challengeable
   32. Joey B. Posted: April 11, 2014 at 07:41 PM (#4684828)
Since Matt Williams likes to use a different batting order every day, he should consider moving Span down towards the bottom.

Just because you're fast, that doesn't mean you're a good leadoff hitter.

Bob Walk had good control, Cecil and Prince Fielder couldn't, Frank White wasn't, Bud Black wasn't...go with DL, he'd pitch forever.

I don't think that's what that section of the rule says. It's just saying that the manager can challenge multiple things on the same play (e.g. the first baseman juggled the ball AND his foot came off the bag first). I don't think that's saying that a reviewable play is a challengeable play.

It's saying both, but that paragraph wasn't necessary anyway.

V. Reviewable Calls

.....

H. Collisions At Home Plate. An Umpire's decision to call or not call a violation of Official Baseball Rule 7.13.


It's reviewable. Any reviewable call is eligible for challenge as there is nothing in the rules specifying otherwise. Umps do have discretionary ability on homerun calls and the catchers blocking the plate on their own, but that doesn't preclude a team from challenging the initial call.
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: April 11, 2014 at 08:53 PM (#4684854)
Basically all reviewable calls are eligible for challenges. On top of that the umpires can
initiate a Replay Review of a potential home run call (as defined in Section V.A below) or of a call involving the application of Official Baseball Rule 7.13 ("Collisions At Home Plate"). Moreover, if a Crew Chief exercises his discretion to initiate Replay Review of a call involving the application of Official Baseball Rule 7.13, the Replay Official shall review any other reviewable call on the runner at home plate on that play (e.g., whether the runner was forced or tagged out at home plate even if Rule 7.13 was not violated). With respect to other reviewable calls (including calls at home plate in which the Crew Chief has not requested Replay Review of a potential Rule 7.13 violation)


After the 7th inning, the umpire can initiate any call that is reviewable if they want. If a team has a challenge remaining, they will use the challenge first, if not, the umpire can still decide to review.

I just think a lot of people are thinking that the umpire discretion calls are separate from reviewable calls. Which is clearly not the case.

June 22, 2008. First win in 54 appearances, including his minor league stints in 2011 and 2013. And 17 consecutive winless starts before tonight.

Cardinals offense still hasn't shown up this season.... It's not even the unsustainable risp of last year that is the problem, it's the complete lack of offense of any type.

2013: Jose Fernandez throws 18 innings vs. the Phils, gives up 1 run.
Tonight: Who didn't see this coming -- 4 innings, 6 ERs, with 4 BBs. And struck out 6 in a row for his only Ks.

And again the announcers (Mike Shannon) don't understand the replay review... just got done saying "Manager can't ask for a review in the 9th inning, but the umpire can do it." implying that they can't challenge after the 7th inning....when is someone going to tell these people that isn't the case.

I haven't used it in the past couple of days, but this season whenever I try to rewind a game my PS3 locks up. I can't even reboot it or power it off without unplugging it.

Whatever Cardinal fans might say about Matheny, I love his bullpen management so far this year. Tied game, home team, going into extra innings, and the closer comes in. He's used the second best reliever in the 6th and 7th innings so far this year, because that was the best way to leverage him. Has no problems with using Carlos Martinez multiple innings.

Justin Grimm for the Cubs has come in to pitch the 10th...8 straight balls so far....

Jose Veras ####### sucks and his signing remains a total mystery when Pedro Strop can be just as shitty at less cost.

Maybe they'll save more than his salary by reducing the arbitration cost of their starters? Samardzija has allowed 3 runs in 21 innings and is 0-1.

Or maybe the team really likes the top 1-2 prospects in the 2015 draft. That's about all I've got.
   70. Dan Posted: April 11, 2014 at 11:55 PM (#4684903)
Do the Cubs have any relievers that can throw a strike?
   71. Lassus Posted: April 11, 2014 at 11:56 PM (#4684904)
Well, ####.
   72. Russlan is fond of Dillon Gee Posted: April 11, 2014 at 11:56 PM (#4684905)
Gee isn't the type of pitcher than can survive too many outings when he walks 4 guys.

Edit: I wrote that before the homer. That's 5 homers allowed in 3 starts this season. That's less than optimal.
   73. Lassus Posted: April 11, 2014 at 11:57 PM (#4684906)
Again - Warthen needs to go. To go now.
   74. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: April 11, 2014 at 11:59 PM (#4684907)
JB Shuck just homered. That... was unexpected. And awesome.
   75. cardsfanboy Posted: April 12, 2014 at 12:03 AM (#4684908)
Of course after complimenting Matheny, he gets into a situation in which Rosenthal is now batting for himself with two men on base.
   76. Dan Posted: April 12, 2014 at 12:03 AM (#4684909)
JB Shuck just homered. That... was unexpected. And awesome.


See? It's like Hamilton isn't even gone. LFer hitting home runs and such.
   77. Dan Posted: April 12, 2014 at 12:08 AM (#4684910)
If Matheny was that keen on getting 2 innings from Rosenthal, then why didn't he double switch Kozma in at 2B for Wong or something?
   78. cardsfanboy Posted: April 12, 2014 at 12:11 AM (#4684911)
I think he really didn't consider it was likely to come up. I mean it required the Cardinals getting to the 5th batter without scoring a run. Also that Rosenthal only threw 8 pitches in his inning of work.

It's always been mostly unwatchable on the PS3, on the PC it's mostly fine.

Possibly related, I can't get my Sony BR player/Netflix box past a 'network error'. Even though it says it's connected.
   80. Dan Posted: April 12, 2014 at 12:14 AM (#4684913)
The Cardinals' outfield looks like they are playing too deep against Kalish.

....annddd he pops up a squeeze attempt anyway. Nicely done.

In my experience it works okay on PS3, just not great. It's just incredibly sensitive to network conditions as if it doesn't buffer the stream far enough ahead. Even slight amounts of wifi interference or latency issues cause it to freak out on PS3.
   82. cardsfanboy Posted: April 12, 2014 at 12:15 AM (#4684915)
should have pinch hit for Rosenthal....
   83. Dan Posted: April 12, 2014 at 12:16 AM (#4684916)

Really happy with Tyler Skaggs tonight. Roughed up early, then came back to finish with three scoreless innings to keep his team in it. Very pleased with him so far.

It generally works okay, although it almost always has bugs that don't get fixed very quickly. One year I couldn't jump to an inning until an update came out sometime around mid-July. Another time it had a bug where it'd randomly switch from stadium audio to commentary, and if you tried to switch back it'd jump to the beginning of the game.

I think the only reason I ever listen to the announcers on the radio/TV is so I can ##### about them.

Every single time a person advances on defensive indifference Mike Shannon makes a snide remark about it. He mi-names it and then gives an example "If the guy falls down and is thrown out, they call it a caught stealing" of why he doesn't like it.... ugh...

So much bad base running for Colorado.

Trout and Pujols both leaving bunches of guys in scoring position tonight. Boo.

Granderson's D looks great in RF. I don't get why the Yankees didn't shift him to a corner full-time a few years ago.

While driving in my car tonight, I was flipping around the dial to find the end of the Blue Jays game. Unfortunately, it was not on the local AM station because of junior hockey (London Knights). While scanning for a second channel, I did come across another game: Tampa vs Cincy.

It's over 400 miles from Cincy to London, so I was VERY surprised to pick up that station.

Whoa. Erick Aybar just spun a terrific play to get Wright out on a hard grounder to his right.
   95. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: April 12, 2014 at 02:01 AM (#4684940)
10th walk issued by the Mets tonight is an IBB to load the bases. We'll see if Conger can sac fly the winning run in...
   96. Dan Posted: April 12, 2014 at 02:03 AM (#4684941)
What a Mets way to lose.
   97. Los Angeles El Hombre de Anaheim Posted: April 12, 2014 at 02:04 AM (#4684942)
HBP WITH THE BASES LOADED. WALK-OFF HBP.

I've never seen that before.

I've never seen that before.

All of MLB: 56 Hit By Pitches Allowed in 1938-2013, walk-off and With runners on 123
None of which I've seen, until tonight.
   100. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: April 12, 2014 at 07:31 AM (#4684961)
54 2011-08-21 Brad Lidge PHI WSN Jonny Gomes tied 4-4 b10 123 1
55 2012-04-11 Jonathan Broxton KCR OAK Jonny Gomes tied 4-4 b12 123 2


Jonny Gomes had two walkoff HBPs in less than a year, apparently. Nobody else has multiple appearances on the list as a hitter, although Randy Moffitt allowed two as a pitcher.
