Last night, Aaron Judge crossed the 1,000 PA mark (now 1,001) since he became a regular at the start of the 2017 season, hitting .283/.415/.606, 167 OPS+, over that interval. I suppose one could quibble about whether 1,000 PA is sufficient to establish a baseline performance, but good enough for me!
   2. dlf Posted: June 23, 2018 at 02:24 PM (#5698409)
Judge, entering this year, had 773 PAs, including his time in '16 that you want to omit. During that time, he had a 270/402/589 slash line with 157 OPS+. In 2018, he has been at 282/399/564 and 159 or up a smidge in singles and down a smidge in walks and power for an overall value that stays exactly on par. Seems odd to want to toss out '16 when his '18 performance is almost exactly what one would get from a straight line projection based on his entire career to date.
   3. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 23, 2018 at 03:55 PM (#5698457)
Seems odd to want to toss out '16 . . .

Seems clear Judge made some adjustments after 2016. Don't think that brief 61 OPS+ stint says much going forward, but if you want to hang your hat there, fine - I specifically noted that one could quibble about how many PA are sufficient to establish a baseline. However, I think Judge's next 95 PA will be far more relevant than the 95 before his Rookie of the Year season. How much did Dustin Pedroia's 98 PA, 42 OPS+ debut matter after he won the ROY & MVP in the following 2 seasons? Not much, IMHO. Those stats still count, but they're not very predictive.
   4. dlf Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:05 PM (#5698465)

Well they were in this case ... as you can see from his 2018 OPS+ that you cited having a much closer match to his 2016+2017 number than his 2017 number alone.

Edit: said differently, in looking forward, his 2018 OPS is 159, his career number is 158 and his 2017+2018 number is 167. Which do you think more predictive, the most recent, the full career, or the cherry picked to add the best stretch?
   5. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:17 PM (#5698472)
We shall see, but I believe that the 1,000 PA that came after 2016 suggest that Judge's 61 OPS+ debut season has as much relevance going forward as Pedroia's equally brief 42 OPS+ debut.
   6. dlf Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:20 PM (#5698473)

I just looked. Including Pedroia's pre-rookie numbers, at the end of his first two full seasons, he had an OPS+ of 112. Excluding the cup of coffee, he was at 118. Next next season, he was at 110 and career since MVP year 114. Looks like including that first partial season helps the predictability of future seasons.

Jesus, the Yankees really need to tighten up their defense.

There was ZERO reason to throw home on that play.

[edit] Nice escape by Sonny ...

Alex Rodriguez. In 1994 and 1995, he had OPS+ of 11 and 72. Then he had a 161 in his first full season. At that point, he had 885 career PA with an OPS+ of 136. If you ignore the first 2 seasons, and count only 1996 and his first 270 PA in 1997, his OPS+ is ~ 155. From 1997-1999, he had OPS+ of 120, 136, 134.

edit: and his career number was 140.
   10. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:32 PM (#5698478)

I think you're misusing the stats. With Judge, the notable thing is that this season's OPS+ is within 7.1% of his 2017 OPS+, a normal variation that is independent of his less than stellar 2016 cup of coffee. Same situation with Pedroia and numerous others who quickly put a poor cup-of-coffee debut behind them.

ANOTHER leadoff double wasted.
   12. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:36 PM (#5698480)
So Willson just hit a homer barely over the wall, where a fan caught it. After he completed his trot, Riggleman came out and apparently asked the ump to review it for fan interference, but using the crew chief review instead of his challenge, which they did. How in the world can it not count as a challenge if he comes out there and asks the umps to review it? That's, definitionally, a manager's challenge.
   13. cardsfanboy Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:41 PM (#5698483)
At least Molina doesn't seem to be showing any injury effects from his injury, 4th homerun since his return, was hitting .269/.371/.500/.871 since he came back(before the hr he just hit today)
   14. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:44 PM (#5698484)

Didn't see the play, but if a manger goes out and says "Don't you think the fan who caught it was reaching out?", it seems OK for the umpires to concede it's close enough to check on a ball "barely over the wall".

Do people exclude Mike Trout's 89 OPS+ debut of 135 PA in 2011 when talking about his career?
   17. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:48 PM (#5698488)
Sonny Gray having a bit of a rough start. If the Yanks can't get him straightened out, a trade for additional pitching seems increasingly likely.
   18. Jess Franco Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:49 PM (#5698489)
Clapper is a party hack.

Sure, if the ump had done that independently. But it was at the instigation of the manager. I dunno, maybe the ump said "yeah, I was going to check that anyway," but it didn't look like it.
   20. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: June 23, 2018 at 04:55 PM (#5698493)
HOW WILL THE YANKEES WASTE THIS LEAD OFF DOUBLE???

[edit]

Out 1: Fly ball to LF; no advance.

Out 2: Shallow fly ball to CF; no advance.

Out 3: Ground out to 3rd.

Bravo gents, BRAVO.

Maybe not in talking about his career, but yeah, it doesn't seem very relevant to his 2018 performance. Or any year after 2012.
   22. cardsfanboy Posted: June 23, 2018 at 05:10 PM (#5698499)
my experience of watching games is that umps seem more than willing to use the ump challenge on homerun calls and not charge the team for it, no matter how the challenge was initiated.
   23. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 23, 2018 at 05:14 PM (#5698504)
Rare check swing single for Didi - fully checked by time of contact. Alas, before I could type that "perhaps the Yankees luck has changed", DP & K bring things to a close.

Well, Trout's first year numbers are mostly irrelevant. If you include it, his OPS+ after 2013 is 166. if you ignore it, it's 174. In 2014 and 2015 his OPS+ was 168 and 176.
   25. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 23, 2018 at 05:15 PM (#5698506)
I suppose it doesn't really matter that they still have their challenge left after you give up a grand slam to the pitcher. ####.
   26. dlf Posted: June 23, 2018 at 05:43 PM (#5698519)
Julio Teheran looks more and more like he will be a back of the rotation pitcher from here on out. Slight build, full effort hurler ... seems like he gave his arm for the early 10s Braves. And with Soroka out again ... At least its a good thing that Washington can't get out of its own way (never should have canned Dusty) and Philly isn't ready to be dominant yet. Plus the evergreen fact that the good guys play in the Mets' division.

Sweet baby Jesus, the Cubs suck.
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: June 23, 2018 at 05:48 PM (#5698522)
Mclaughlin has been going on for over 20 minutes now about the Cardinals strikeouts. Not even talking about the game, but just railing and railing on strikeouts.
   29. Howie Menckel Posted: June 23, 2018 at 05:53 PM (#5698527)
from onroto:

06.23: Angels claimed RHP Hansel Robles off waivers from the Mets and optioned him to Triple-A.
(It's surprising Robles made it to the Angels, considering that he did have the option left and stashing him away in Triple-A wasn't a problem. A valuable reliever his first two years in the league, Robles has struggled to a 4.95 ERA in 76 1/3 innings since the start of 2017. He's struck out 83 in that span, but he's also walked 39 and given up 17 homers. The Angels needed some extra depth, and Robles can eat a lot of innings in middle relief when he's pitching well.)

from Mets fans to Angels fans: good luck with that!
I feel bad for fans of their AAA team - were they a contender until this?
   30. Baldrick Posted: June 23, 2018 at 06:05 PM (#5698529)
Sweet baby Jesus, the Cubs suck.

The Cubs are 11 games over .500 (soon to be 10) and have the best run differential in the National League.
   31. cardsfanboy Posted: June 23, 2018 at 06:08 PM (#5698530)
Molina with his second two homerun game this week. That month off has done wonders for his health, and is a reason I keep pushing for more off days for him.

The first grand slam hit by a Reds pitcher since Bob Purkey in 1959.

Matheny yanks a coasting Mikolas with 2 out in the 7th after an error... he's allowed one baserunner in the last five innings, and the Cardinals are clinging to a 1-run lead.

I don't even know who's coming in from the pen and I do not agree with this decision.
   35. Spahn Insane Posted: June 23, 2018 at 06:40 PM (#5698536)

I’m aware of this. I have the experience of watching them more than most. I stand by my comment. They can prove me wrong by winning some damned games against AAAA pitching.

They’ve had the best run differential in the league for much of the year, and the best in the Central for nearly all of it. Which means #######.
   36. Spahn Insane Posted: June 23, 2018 at 06:42 PM (#5698537)
Also, Matheny’s an idiot, and the Cardinals are useless. Can’t even win when I sort of want them to.
   37. Jess Franco Posted: June 23, 2018 at 07:06 PM (#5698542)

   38. cardsfanboy Posted: June 23, 2018 at 07:06 PM (#5698544)

Max Muncy. Wow.
   40. salvomania Posted: June 23, 2018 at 07:37 PM (#5698552)

They won this in spite of themselves. The bullpen was handing out free bases---two HBP in the last two innings of a 1-run game?

What do you say about the team that leads the league in outs on the basepaths, is last in the league in CS and CS%, and allows more INF hits than anyone else?

They just seem poorly prepared in the fundamental aspects of the game. They are *always* surprised by a bunt, always surprised by any kind of aggressive baserunning. If I'm an opposing manager I would ALWAYS put pressure on their defense because they will almost always fail to execute.

   41. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 23, 2018 at 07:40 PM (#5698554)
So I guess this is the Cubs' apparently mandatory annual Sh*t the Bed Against a Crap Team series.
   42. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 23, 2018 at 07:45 PM (#5698556)
Unusual play - the Red Sox lost a run on a HBP. With the bases loaded, Devers swung at what was first ruled a wild pitch, allowing the runners to advance, but after review, it was determined that the ball had clipped his back foot. Since the swing negated the HBP, the runners returned & the at-bat continued, resulting in an inning-ending groundout. #Justice.
   43. Cowboy Popup Posted: June 23, 2018 at 07:45 PM (#5698557)
Anyone watching the Indians broadcast? They're talking about Trevor Bauer like he's pure grit and no talent. "He's not 6'5, he doesn't throw 100."

Sure, I guess. But he is 6'1 and sits at almost 95 MPH.

The Mets avoid disaster in the third when a Justin Turner fly nearly falls brtween Bautista and Conforto because neither one really can field those positions.

Kershaw a bit shaky in return. Not hitting his spots.

Could be a few more long balls at Citi with the wind blowing out. Anybody else see Nimmo's triple last night? Looked like Bellinger had a bead on the ball and he didn't come close to putting leather on it.
   76. Jess Franco Posted: June 24, 2018 at 02:18 PM (#5698721)
Speaking of Bellinger...

The Mets have hung in by taking a couple of HBPs from Hill's wicked curve.

Apparently the Mariners bullpen phone is dead. Marco Gonzales was great until the 5th, matching Chris sale pitch for pitch in an 0-0 tie. That inning, he got into all sorts of trouble and gave up 3 runs. So with JD Martinez leading off the 6th, they leave him in. Infield single, Moreland HR, and finally there's bullpen action. Oh, and the pen is in great shape, Leake having gone 8 last night.

What a ####### disaster. I tune in the game, Cubs up 6-1. They have since allowed 8 baserunners while recording 0 outs.

You can only hold down powerhouses like Jesse Winkler for so long.

The weekend has felt like a lot of those situations. Strop looked like he was going to pull it together and "minimize" the damage, recording those two outs, and then getting into a favorable count with Peraza. And then he ####### walks him and forces in a run.

And I guess now we bring in Rosario to face Winkler with the bases loaded, maybe to get some series symmetry and have him hit another grand slam?

Routine fly to left at Fenway near the line. Span goes over as the crowd yells and tries to distract him. He catches it then fake tosses it into the crowd before throwing into the infield. Roundly booed. Pretty funny, he was chuckling and it seemed good natured all around.

Ghost - even with the 8 innings from Leake last night how fresh is the Mariner bullpen? They played that 14-10 game the other night and didn’t they get knocked around a couple games in New York too?

Dodgers score a run on a coupla hits and a Kemp GIDP that clears the sacks for Bellinger to nearly hit one out of the park, LA's sixth solo shot on the day,

7-4 bottom of the eighth.
   93. Jess Franco Posted: June 24, 2018 at 03:49 PM (#5698762)
Bautista does a terrific job avoiding the tag and a sure out at third, the Plawecki ties it with his first HR of the season on a fly to left that just kept going.

7-up.

MOST TIMES WITH 5+ HR IN CITIFIELD HISTORY
1. Dodgers 3
2. Mets 2

I guess that Jackie Robinson Rotunda in the main CitiField entrance is appropriate in more ways than one

Finally a game that makes it look like the Cardinals have played baseball before today.

I see the Cubs are still a steaming pile of dogshite. Glad they’re in LA next; 10 pm eastern time starts give me an excellent excuse not to watch.

Brewers are gonna win the Central this year.

Grandal just missed #7. Pederson on 1st, Turner up.

Stanton appears to be fully out of his funk. 4-4 today, 2 doubles and a HR.
   99. Jess Franco Posted: June 24, 2018 at 04:12 PM (#5698772)
The Reds have now accomplished four-game sweeps versus both Cubs and Dodgers.

Baseball is a funny business.

The Trop is such a joke. Frazier just had a HR turned into a pop-out by a speaker.
