HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!
   2. TomH Posted: June 17, 2019 at 03:22 PM (#5852859)
repeating yesterday's (untackled) question:

stat of the day:

MLB pitchers, standard qualification of min of 1 IP per game
best opponents batting average allowed

2nd thru 13th place are between .180 and .207
But the best mark is ... .152! Who owns that?!

Not coincidentally, his BABIP is also amazingly low, By Far the best in MLB at .173.
   3. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 17, 2019 at 03:53 PM (#5852870)
Lucas Giolito?
   4. Bote Man sez Davey is MoY Posted: June 17, 2019 at 03:57 PM (#5852875)
I'm voting for Jerry M. Anderede.
   5. Don August(us) Cesar Geronimo Berroa Posted: June 17, 2019 at 04:01 PM (#5852877)
That has to be Verlander. He hardly gives up any hits, but, when he does, they are solo hr
   6. BrianBrianson Posted: June 17, 2019 at 04:06 PM (#5852879)
Rivera averaged 1.15 IP/game, and thus seems like an obvious candidate. But some deadball era guy wouldn't surprise me at all.

HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

Have you SEEN who is pitching against the Angels tonight?
   8. Random Transaction Generator Posted: June 17, 2019 at 04:34 PM (#5852909)
Yeah, my guess would be Verlander. Something like 1/3 of the hits he's given up have been HR, so that would definitely suppress the BABIP.
   9. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: June 17, 2019 at 05:06 PM (#5852924)
So the Yanks' lineup will add Encarnacion tonight, Stanton tomorrow, and Judge sometime during the current home stand that ends a week from Wednesday. Not a bad prospect to contemplate.

Of course if their starting pitchers keep getting chased by the 4th or 5th, none of that will mean jack.
   10. Bote Man sez Davey is MoY Posted: June 17, 2019 at 05:21 PM (#5852928)

That's Max Scherzer's trademark.
   11. Walt Davis Posted: June 17, 2019 at 05:23 PM (#5852929)
The answer is Verlander. (Giolito tied for 2nd at 180)

Impressively, Verladner #1, Cole #9, Peacock #15 and former Astro Mortion #4. The Rays also add Chirinos and Snell in the top 30. Possibly those two teams have figured something out.
   12. Walt Davis Posted: June 17, 2019 at 05:56 PM (#5852952)
I haven't done this yet this season so closing in on the halfway mark, why not ... last year we saw some odd positional hitting splits especially in the AL where SS kicked butt and 1B kinda sucked. So this year, what do we get?

NL looks reasonably normal with 1B and RF leading the way. 3B are hitting the same as LF. The most unusual thing is that SS (757) and C (744) are easily out-hitting CF and 2B (both 715). Especially without Cain hitting this year, NL CF are a pretty sorry bunch.

But the AL is still deeply weird. DH lead the way with a 789 followed very closely by SS at 784 and LF at 783. 1B are also being out-hit by RF and 3B and just ahead of CF. Meanwhile 2B are on the bottom here too with a measly 703.

Looking at MLB overall, we see mostly sensible results on HRs. Just using nuumbers, the bottom goes C 293, SS 285, CF 282 and 2B 257. Probably a little weird to see 2B so far at the bottom -- C maybe surprising but C OPS tends to be SLG-heavy.

My pet theory is that teams are emphasizing IF defensive range less (FBs, Ks, shifts) allowing them to keep bigger bats at SS (so not moving to 2B/3B/CF). Possibly some 3B who would have been moved to 1B/OF in the past are staying put. Of course this pet theory doesn't explain why 2B stink -- it does in part if decent-hitting SS are staying put but then why not play more defensively limited 2B? If you are gonna have a 710 OPS position, it would still seem sensible to move your good-hitting SS to 2B and put some defensive whiz at SS rather than vice versa. Has the shift required an upgrade in 2B range? I'd have thought the opposite.

Most likely it's just a random historical blip with a lot of good young players coming into the game at once and younger guys are more likely to play SS. Probably in a decade, those guys will be at 2B-3B with a weaker group of SS coming up and things will look normal again.

Meanwhile ... across all of MLB, RPs are at -0.9 WAA, below-average in both leagues. Maybe we've found the solution to the endless array of relievers -- not enough good pitchers.

Let's go Bombers !
   14. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:25 PM (#5852971)
Finally joining the Angels after months with turf toe and other issues, Justin Upton homers on the very first pitch he sees this season!
   15. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:38 PM (#5852972)
Gonna be a close one in the Bronx. Didi trying to bunt against the shift... might not be the last bunt we see.

Encarnación with a K, but a long and good one. If there is such a thing.
   16. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:43 PM (#5852973)
Tanaka has some nasty stuff tonight. Like !
   17. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:43 PM (#5852974)
Have you SEEN who is pitching against the Angels tonight?
You called that one. Upton homers, then Calhoun homers, later Trout doubles, Ohtani homers. 7 runs in the inning. Inning's not done yet, but Jackson is.
   18. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:45 PM (#5852975)
Is it too early to congratulate the Angels on this terrific win vs. the bodacious Blue Jays ?
   19. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:48 PM (#5852976)
This Maybin the Yankees chance !
What a terrible AB by Gardner. Shame. Shame. Shame.
   20. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:51 PM (#5852978)
What a nice AB by DJ LeMahieu. 2:0 Yanks.
   21. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 17, 2019 at 07:56 PM (#5852980)
Comeon Sanchez, bloop one and try to go to second, just for fun !

On this day, 1978, Ron Guidry struck out 18 Angels ? Holy Cow.
   23. Tom Nawrocki Posted: June 17, 2019 at 08:12 PM (#5852983)
This was the second time they've used an opener for Edwin Jackson; it worked OK last time, when he gave up 2 runs in five innings, but not so much this time.

In Jackson's starts (or "starts") for the Jays this season, he's allowed 3, 6, 7, 10, 6, 2 and 7 runs. I don't think he's the answer.

DJ LeMahieu is so awesome.
   27. Random Transaction Generator Posted: June 17, 2019 at 08:29 PM (#5852990)
In Jackson's starts (or "starts") for the Jays this season, he's allowed 3, 6, 7, 10, 6, 2 and 7 runs. I don't think he's the answer.

The Jays rotation and AAA pitchers are just a disaster of injuries right now.

That said, it pretty much has to be the end of the Jackson experiment. He's not even eating innings at this point. If he gave up 7 runs over 5 innings, that would be one thing...
   28. rconn23 Posted: June 17, 2019 at 08:34 PM (#5852991)
Who goes from the Yankees roster once Judge returns? It's either Urshela or Maybin. It would be a shame to lose either but it'll probably be Maybin.
   29. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 17, 2019 at 08:45 PM (#5852995)
Trout homers, now a triple shy of the Angels' second cycle in less than a week.

What pitch selection does the #OBLIGATORYTANAKAHOMERUN come on?

Who goes from the Yankees roster once Judge returns? It's either Urshela or Maybin.
Or - and I know this is a crazy, radical idea here, but hear me out - what if, maybe, they could get by without nine relief pitchers?

P.S. I am not a crackpot.
   32. rconn23 Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:02 PM (#5853003)
"What pitch selection does the #OBLIGATORYTANAKAHOMERUN come on?"

Not tonight, unless they decide to bring him out for the 8th. I'd bring in the bullpen. Tanak was awesome.
   33. AndrewJ Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:06 PM (#5853005)
1) Mike Trout celebrates his eighth year in the bigs in another three weeks.

2) He'll probably be in the top 100 in career WAR by then.
   34. rconn23 Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:11 PM (#5853006)
Twins getting one-hit by … (checks box score) Rick Porcello. Ok then.
   35. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:19 PM (#5853009)
My pet theory is that teams are emphasizing IF defensive range less (FBs, Ks, shifts) allowing them to keep bigger bats at SS (so not moving to 2B/3B/CF). Possibly some 3B who would have been moved to 1B/OF in the past are staying put. Of course this pet theory doesn't explain why 2B stink -- it does in part if decent-hitting SS are staying put but then why not play more defensively limited 2B? If you are gonna have a 710 OPS position, it would still seem sensible to move your good-hitting SS to 2B and put some defensive whiz at SS rather than vice versa. Has the shift required an upgrade in 2B range? I'd have thought the opposite.


it's small enough analysis, that you kinda have to look at the players involved.. we are talking about just 15 players.

An overall analysis really doesn't work for these fluctuations in my opinion... they are nice data grabs, but you have to look at the quality involved and see if maybe there is more than just a change in philosophy as a group... I mean if your position is top heavy in quality, it might throw the numbers off (or a myriad other factors)


add in, you might have to look at the health in those positions... if the starter is playing shortstop more often than the starter is playing other positions, then the better player is showing up... add in that many teams are rotating players at several positions (2b/3b) vs leaving the shortstop alone... all of this makes the analysis interesting, but also means it's tough to narrow it down.
   36. rconn23 Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:23 PM (#5853010)
Tanaka clean through 8. Do they bring him out for the complete game with the top of the order up in the 9th?
   37. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:37 PM (#5853013)
Tanaka clean through 8. Do they bring him out for the complete game with the top of the order up in the 9th?


100 pitches exactly 2 hits, 1 walk, 8 k's... you almost have to bring him out... he's old enough that worrying about his arm isn't that big of an issue.
   38. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:41 PM (#5853015)
make that 9 strikeouts....
   39. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:43 PM (#5853016)
10 strikeouts... have to face Pham for the complete game.

   41. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:44 PM (#5853018)
Carpenter with a bunt double against the shift.
   42. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:47 PM (#5853019)
If players are willing to bunt against the shift, they can increase their paydays going forward....
   43. phredbird Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:49 PM (#5853021)

oh dear, and now the marlins impersonate a little league team as a popup falls between outfielders. two straight weird two-base plays.

or mis-plays, i guess ...
   44. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:49 PM (#5853022)
I don't mind in one bit.
   45. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:50 PM (#5853023)
I still love... love...love the bunt double. Carp has proven he has no pride about "beating the shift" by swinging as hard as he can, he'll take what they give him, which is how you really beat the shift.
   46. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: June 17, 2019 at 09:52 PM (#5853024)
Who goes from the Yankees roster once Judge returns? It's either Urshela or Maybin. It would be a shame to lose either but it'll probably be Maybin.

Or maybe the bottom end guy in the bullpen. Urshela's obviously needed as the player who gives Boone lineup flexibility, and Maybin can't be sent down without losing him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tanaka was LOLOL good tonight. That last slider to Meadows

Tanaka's the little girl with the curl, and tonight he was very, very good. He's now given the Rays 1 run this year in something like 24 innings.

Cardinal's announcers are bagging on the Cardinals.... for effectively only leading this game 2-0 right now... their argument is that the Marlins suck... and a good team should be destroying them.
   49. Howie Menckel Posted: June 17, 2019 at 10:20 PM (#5853034)
hapless Familia allows a single and back-to-back walks to load 'em up tonight with 1 out, and Mets skipper Callaway just can't look at him anymore.

so he sends in the latest fungible RP - who waves them all home like he was in a Spanish bullfight.

same bum shows up for a hapless 8th, and lifts his ERA to 7.78 vs Familia's 7.81. maybe it's a contest?

I'm saying there's a good chance that there's no chance.....
   50. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 10:22 PM (#5853035)
it's still a bit early to look at standings, but it's weird to see that the 4th place Padres have a better record than the 4th place Pirates.... I'm in the camp that the 5th place Reds are better than the third place Rockies overall.... but of course you have divisional play affecting the standings, but c'mon nobody takes the Padres as seriously as the Pirates.
   51. Walt Davis Posted: June 17, 2019 at 10:32 PM (#5853037)
we are talking about just 15 players

No, the 2B stink in both leagues and the CF aren't really pulling their weight offensively either. So it's 30-60. But sure, it's most likely just a short-term blip which I acknowledged in the next paragraph. That's why it's a pet theory.

The main analytical issue is that (to my knowledge) nobody has tried to develop an absolute defensive metric -- which would be tough since the detailed defensive data only goes so far back and you'd have to try to adjust for opportunities. But basically there's no way to tell if today's SS are worse defensively than those of the past. You could try to look at opportunities/plays made per GB (maybe), physical size (with obvious worries about data quality), other speed indicators like SB and triples (with obvious worries about context affecting value). But we've certainly seen changes that you would think would reduce the absolute defensive value of IFs -- Ks and FBs and shifts -- so it would seem likely that teams would be more comfy keeping a good bat there. But as I noted, you'd still want the better defender at SS than 2B so why have a (relatively) lousy-hitting 2B instead of a lousy-hitting SS?

We could try other crude aggregate guesswork -- Overall BABIPs probably haven't changed much which would suggest overall defensive performance hasn't changed much so any micro-level change would probably be limited to a shift from IF to OF defensive quality (adjusting to more FBs). That would be assuming the distribution of play difficulty is stable ... which it probably is unless exit velocity has increased over time.

Crudely 2B SS 3B CF OPS for the 2000s:

2000-4: 739 726 769 768
2005-9: 750 727 778 756
2010-4: 705 688 731 733
2015-9: 735 725 768 742

Nothing too exciting at that level. 2B, SS, 3B in 2015-19 are basically identical to 2000-04 but CF are down a good bit. CF also had a big drop in 2005-9 while the other spots maintained or went up a bit ... but then they had a smaller drop in 2010-14. The aggregation overlooks the recent trends for 2B and SS though with 2B having big years in 2016 and 17 then dropping substantially while SS have been increasing ... but it's just 4 years.

The Nationals waited almost 3 hours to bang the game, just when the storms were fizzling out. A Twitter user posted a collage of angry tweets from Phililes phans, but I can assure you that Nats fans were no happier about the way this rain delay was handled. It's a bad pattern that they've established in D.C.

Make up game will be a split double-header on Wednesday, 1PM and 7PM.

agreed... as I was posting my comment, I thought about posting rField or some other crap... and then realized it wouldn't tell you #### about what you are talking about, which is more or less that they are accepting less defense from these positions.
   56. cardsfanboy Posted: June 17, 2019 at 10:55 PM (#5853048)
according to the Cardinals announcers, this Cardinals game is the third game of the season that featured no walks..(either side) two of them were Cardinal games. Not sure how to verify that on bb-ref...

Reports out of Minnesota state that the Twins and Giants are moving closer to a deal involving Madison Bumgarner. Something to keep an eye on
   58. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 18, 2019 at 01:07 AM (#5853063)
Anyone still watching Giants-Dodgers? Sciambi has taken the centaur by the horns (?), expressly taking up the battle of fact vs. narrative against ARod for the past couple innings, centered (centaured?) around whether homer-reliant teams can succeed in the postseason. Sciambi is being bolder than any other broadcaster I can remember in directly confronting the BS in-booth. Any bets on whether it will do any good?
   59. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 18, 2019 at 01:09 AM (#5853064)
The exchange has been more or less as follows...

Sciambi: [fact]

ARod: But, [made-up narrative]

Sciambi: (trying to be accommodating) OK, but [fact]

ARod: Yeah, home runs are fine, but fundamentals, small ball, etc.

50 GOTO 10

I was watching at a sports bar so I only had closed caption subtitles, but on the subject of why they mention exit velocity A-Rod said something like "Back in my day the leadoff hitter's job was to get on base, so you wanted a guy with big OBA numbers. Now they are looking to hit the big fly." Bludgeon Ball, indeed.

Then the hitter popped out meekly, so a not-big fly there.
