HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

how will the Nationals hit enough to win, but lose anyway today??

stat of the day

Terry Francona (mgr, Cleveland) had managed a full 18 seasons in MLB coming into this spring.
His first 4 were all losing seasons (Philly)
But his last 14 have been above .500; 14 in a row (Bos, Cleve). A nice streak, and I suspect a rare one!
His Indians are off to a poor start this year, possibly putting his streak in danger.

Without looking it up, I assume Joe McCarthy holds all sorts of these records, as he had 15 winning seasons in a row managing the Yanks, plus more with the Red Sox and the Cubs, with some partial seasons (also winning!) thrown in. McCarthy NEVER had a season managing a MLB team with a losing record.

Bote, that's painful to try & read.

CarGo batting third today for the Cubs. Maddon's going the full Dusty with him, apparently.

Well, it's a sunny day...wait, which side of that equation do the Latin players fall on? Did Dusty ever clarify that?
   7. Spahn Insane Posted: June 07, 2019 at 03:07 PM (#5849426)
Maybe not, but surely his walk/baseclogging rate needs to be factored in somewhere.
   8. Bote Man sez Deivi is MoY Posted: June 07, 2019 at 03:13 PM (#5849430)
I will not accept this Dusty blasphemy!!

It's not like he's a Nationals treasure or anything.

Dusty Baker last 4 seasons as manager his teams averaged 95-67. After Baker was fired in Cincinnati the Reds dropped to 76 wins and have finished last four years in a row. I am not Dusty Baker's agent, and I know the dude is old but #### nobody can use this guy?

Oh, I have a hunch about a team that could...

Christian Yelich since last year's ASB:

.350/.444/.753
105 runs
48(!!) dingers
118 rbi
23 steals/3 caught
Loves dogs

follow up: Because it's so extreme have to mention the road OPS of .844 and the home OPS of 1.611(!!!!!). Has a player in any significant sample had a home/away OPS where one was almost double the other?

   14. Zonk Is Not Part of Any Drug Deal Cooked Up Posted: June 07, 2019 at 04:44 PM (#5849465)
I am nearing a point that I think the Cubs should approach Cole Hamels for an extension... This is not ordinarily something I would think about with a 35 yo pitcher, but I am getting very close to think a reasonable 2 yr or even 2 yr+ an option might be a good idea. Something like 2/35 with some bonuses would be great... even something in the 2/40 realm wouldn't upset me.
   15. Zonk Is Not Part of Any Drug Deal Cooked Up Posted: June 07, 2019 at 04:46 PM (#5849466)
At minimum, Hamels is well on his way to earning a QO. This has been a fantastic pitching performance.

Sir Didi returns from Tommy John surgery with a long single, but is thrown out at 2nd attempting to stretch it to a double.
   18. The Rare Albino Shrieking Goat of Guatemala. Posted: June 07, 2019 at 07:29 PM (#5849480)
Syndrome!

Headline describes this as a gruesome injury:
Seattle Mariners center fielder Mitch Haniger was placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday with a ruptured testicle after hitting himself with a foul ball Thursday. . . . Haniger suffered the injury in the third inning of Thursday's loss to the Houston Astros but didn't leave until the seventh inning.
Ouch.
   20. The Rare Albino Shrieking Goat of Guatemala. Posted: June 07, 2019 at 07:48 PM (#5849487)
HICKS!!!

Heating up!
   21. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 07, 2019 at 07:49 PM (#5849488)
Aaron Hicks solo HR. Looks like he may have shaken the post-injury rust off.
   22. Lassus Posted: June 07, 2019 at 08:14 PM (#5849491)
DeGrom looking bad.
   23. Howie Menckel Posted: June 07, 2019 at 08:21 PM (#5849492)
Last of the Phillies Setup Men: looks like Seranthony Dominguez is headed the TJS route. Seranthony joins David Robertson, Pat Neshek, Tommy Hunter, Adam Morgan, Victor Arano, and Edubray Ramos on the IL.

I imagine the Phillies are the horn with the Cubs, asking what they want for Kimbrel.
:)

How is that only the 10-day IL?

Yankees in a bit of a tailspin. About to be only a half game ahead. The Rays are the best team in that division.

Mets announcers are al fresco on a beautiful NYC night calling the game (behind home plate as usual, though), so between innings some fans have come by to get autographs, etc.

middle-aged couple comes over, on the air, and she is wearing a Keith Hernandez jersey. Ron Darling signs high on the jersey, saying he doesn't want to get fresh with the "young lady" by signing lower.

then it's Keith's turn to do the autograph honors, and she tells him she named her son after him. he's impressed at first, then she says his name is "Adam Keith" [whatever last name].

Keith pretends to be offended: "How comes it's the MIDDLE name?"

much mirth ensues.

before they leave, Ron notices the guy's t-shirt. on the left is a generic female outline with the words "YOUR WIFE."
on the right side is a silhouette of a woman cad in a Mets jersey, with her arms upraised in celebration with the words "MY WIFE." stellar.

Sadly the game isn't very much fun.
   28. Howie Menckel Posted: June 07, 2019 at 10:14 PM (#5849510)
yep.
ex-Met-turned-Met-killer Daniel Murphy hits the second of back-to-back moonshots off generic Mets reliever to turn a 2-1 Rockies lead into 5-1.

third pitch of the next AB, Desmond gets hit in the back with a pitch. mild animosity ensues. Murphy leaps out of the dugout as if this is the start of the opening scene in the movie "Troy." everyone else seems far less excited.

desultory clearing of benches, then the bullpen contingents jog 300 feet or so to the pitching mound in a manner reminiscent of a high school phys ed class one lap around the track.

effervescent Dom Smith eventually gives Murphy a very polite walk back to his dugout.

From viewsfrom314ft.com (new site, founded by a bunch of writers Mike A. recruited for RAB):

1. Domingo Germán is Giving Up A Lot of Home Runs: Sure does feel like some of the shine is coming off Domingo Germán, doesn’t it? Opposing batters were hitting .295/.330/.523 against him coming into tonight’s game in his last 4 starts to the tune of a .853 OPS. For some context, that means that every batter Germán has faced in those starts has been Gleyber Torres or DJ LeMahieu. That’s not good.


ze German was good at the start, but then he went too far (into the game and, increasingly, the season) ...
   30. Howie Menckel Posted: June 07, 2019 at 10:43 PM (#5849514)
his IP per year totals in his career make Chris Paddack seem like Gaylord Perry.

unfortunately, Operation Shutdown barks softly in the season's distance.

Matt Chapman IS your 2019 AL MVP: starts a dandy around-the-horn double play with the bases loaded to end the game, A's win the series opener against Texas, 5-3. Marcus Semien hit 2 homers; Brett Anderson kept the Rangers fooled (6 shutout innings on about 70 pitches) right up until he didn't (3 runs on 3 hits in the 7th).
   32. Howie Menckel Posted: June 08, 2019 at 01:08 AM (#5849563)
supposedly Nats blew a 4-3 lead with 2 outs in the 9th on a game-tying single by Josh Naylor, then his SB and a single wins it.

I have mentioned that Naylor doesn't LOOK that fat at 5-11, 250 - and he's only 21 years old. still, I'd like to see that SB. :)

Apparently the Nats' outfield did them in. Eaton and Robles must've both crashed into the wall on a futile attempt to catch a deep fly, allowing the batter to triple. It went downhill from there.
