HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!
   2. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 30, 2019 at 12:26 PM (#5827019)
Repeating from the only OMNICHATTER available at 11:50 AM:
Today’s Yankee line-up:

CF Gardner
RF Judge
LF Stanton
1B Voit
DH Andújar
C Sánchez
2B Torres
SS Tulowitzki
3B LeMahieu
SP Paxton

Greg Bird doesn’t start, despite an Opening Day HR and a right-handler going for the Orioles. Maybe it’s simply too risky to play him 2 games in a row, even with the intervening off day. All kidding aside, there’s a case for spreading out the playing time, although I’d certainly like to see Bird finally put it together over a full season.
   3. puck Posted: March 30, 2019 at 12:49 PM (#5827027)
How has Tulo looked at short? That would be amazing if he still has mobility after a year off with the heel problems.

I get not messing with Torres but it's a shame Lemahieu isn't playing 2nd. Lemahieu is really good there.
   4. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 30, 2019 at 01:09 PM (#5827032)
Reports indicate that Tulowitzki is moving much better this year. Apparently the surgery helped considerably. Still to be determined if he’ll hold up, or whether age catches up with him, but given that he was basically free to the Yankees and is only needed until Gregorius gets back sometime in the second half of the season, it looks like he can do what the Yankees need him for. Still early, of course.

Well, I'll take that 1st ever Yankee inning from Paxton ...
   6. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: March 30, 2019 at 01:25 PM (#5827037)
Repeating from the only OMNICHATTER available at 11:50 AM:
Accept the crumbs of your betters.
   7. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 30, 2019 at 01:26 PM (#5827038)
Orioles opener walks Judge, Stanton & Voit in 1st inning. Could get interesting.
   8. the Centaur Nipple Paradox (CoB). Posted: March 30, 2019 at 01:28 PM (#5827040)
And then Andujar beshats the inning.

Blech.
   9. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: March 30, 2019 at 02:02 PM (#5827045)
Victor Robles gets his first big league homer, and off Syndergaard, no less.
   10. puck Posted: March 30, 2019 at 02:13 PM (#5827049)
Still to be determined if he’ll hold up


I think Tulowitski is Polish for "will get injured."
   11. Dock Ellis Posted: March 30, 2019 at 02:21 PM (#5827051)
Trevor Bauer makes his first start of the year today. He's shown off new pitches on social so I'm excited to see him pitch.
   12. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: March 30, 2019 at 02:41 PM (#5827056)
Not a good day for Victor Robles in DC (HR notwithstanding)... late breaks, wrong breaks, awkwardly missed a catch at the wall, just got picked off first by Syndergaard. And we're only 5 innings in.
   13. Cowboy Popup Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:09 PM (#5827060)
@ 11, caught part of Bauer's 3rd. Lots of breaking balls, especially early in the count. I saw him get a groundout and K Buxton with maybe two true fastballs betwen both hitters.
   14. Dock Ellis Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:16 PM (#5827065)
Saw that too! He's got 5 strikeouts so far, indeed working the zone with various breaking pitches. His change-up today is particularly knee-buckling.
   15. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:25 PM (#5827066)
Not a good day for Victor Robles in DC (HR notwithstanding)... late breaks, wrong breaks, awkwardly missed a catch at the wall . . .

I took in 11 Nationals spring training games, and Robles looked shakey then, too, which was surprising since I remember him as a good fielder when he came up. Maybe just small sample size, or perhaps he’s pressing after missing last year to injury, or trying to avoid incurring another injury?
   16. Cowboy Popup Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:27 PM (#5827067)
Yeah, the change is fire. Buxton swang right through it.

At first I thought the triple came off a change but that looked like a back door slider.

Then, with a runner on third he started dialing it up. Almost got out of it too. And then back to pitching backwards with the bases empty, maybe topping out at 88. He is a fascinating guy to watch pitch.
   17. Cowboy Popup Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:31 PM (#5827068)
Btw, blacked out of both the Nats and Yanks games today.. how did Thor look velocity wise today? K and BB numbers look good, that's for sure.
   18. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:34 PM (#5827070)
One of the amusing things about BBTF is that star players almost always become more steadfastly admired the douchier they act.
   19. Cowboy Popup Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:48 PM (#5827072)
One of the amusing things about BBTF is that star players almost always become more steadfastly admired the douchier they act.

I think the rise to stardom tends to lead to the increase in douchiness. Although Bauer was always a douche.

But on the mound he has a pretty unique, and now very successful, approach which makes him fun to watch. Plus he's on my fantasy team.
   20. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:54 PM (#5827073)
Who is this old white guy rapping at me all the time on MLB Network?
   21. Cowboy Popup Posted: March 30, 2019 at 03:56 PM (#5827074)
Who is this old white guy rapping at me

That might also be Trevor Bauer...
   22. Walt Davis Posted: March 30, 2019 at 04:31 PM (#5827078)
What have they done to the ball now? 74 HR in 50 games.
   23. Chip Posted: March 30, 2019 at 04:31 PM (#5827079)
Pretty embarrassing effort by Rickard in right for the O’s with a chance to end the game.
   24. Chip Posted: March 30, 2019 at 04:32 PM (#5827081)
Wright picks him up.
   25. Dock Ellis Posted: March 30, 2019 at 04:43 PM (#5827082)
Judging from his commercials and other media appearances, David Ortiz may be having second thoughts about retiring.
   26. Fancy Crazy Town Banana Pants Handle Posted: March 30, 2019 at 06:20 PM (#5827095)
What have they done to the ball now? 74 HR in 50 games.

That is... not that much is it? I feel like that sounds about normal to me. If I had to guess what the number of HRs per game was in 2018, I would have said probably about 1.5...
   27. Tom Nawrocki Posted: March 30, 2019 at 06:47 PM (#5827103)
Wow. Bryce Harper's first homer in a Phillies uniform is a 465-foot moon shot.
   28. Walt Davis Posted: March 30, 2019 at 07:43 PM (#5827105)
That's 50 team games ... nearly 3 HR per game.

EDIT: For further context, last year's was 1.15 per team-game; the record 2017 was 1.26; so far this year nearly 1.5. Of course it's only two games but early season is usually crappier HR weather (though not really so much this year that I've noticed).
   29. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 30, 2019 at 07:49 PM (#5827106)
Victor Robles gets his first big league homer, and off Syndergaard, no less

Didn’t notice this before, but Robles had 3 HR in 2018, before he was injured.
   30. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: March 30, 2019 at 08:12 PM (#5827110)
Cool
   31. Brian C Posted: March 30, 2019 at 08:33 PM (#5827114)
I guess I've only really noticed Edinson Volquez in the past when he was having good years, because I'm looking at BRef right now and never realized he's really pretty crappy more often than he's good.
   32. Brian C Posted: March 30, 2019 at 08:37 PM (#5827115)
In other news, Darvish doing his best Carlos Zambrano impression in the first inning tonight, striking out the first two batters before walking the next two and throwing 25 pitches in 2/3 of an inning so far.
   33. salvomania Posted: March 30, 2019 at 08:43 PM (#5827117)
Dakota Husdson allowed just one HR in 139 ip last year (111.2 in AAA, 27.1 with the Cardinals), and now he's allowed 3 in the first three innings tonight against the Brewers.

Yelich is off to a very hot start.
   34. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: March 30, 2019 at 09:04 PM (#5827119)
Local Fox Sports affiliates (watching Brewers/Cardinals on MLB Network) are now selling ad time between pitches in regular season games? Still wonder why Manfred will never move past "considering" a pitch clock?

And #### you, Great Southwest Bank, whoever TF you are for buying it.
   35. Brian C Posted: March 30, 2019 at 09:05 PM (#5827120)
Darvish through his first 8+ batters faced:

K

Agonizing.

is rick horton the other guy in the booth with dan?

I saw this earlier today during the Mets/Nats on MLB Network, which was an SNY feed, so it's not just Fox.
   38. Walt Davis Posted: March 30, 2019 at 09:11 PM (#5827123)
Is Joe trying to break Darvish again?
   39. Jay Seaver Posted: March 30, 2019 at 09:14 PM (#5827124)
NESN had one last night too. I'm kind of worried that just sneaking a couple in during the late games on a west coast trip is a way to try and slowly get us used to it.
   40. Brian C Posted: March 30, 2019 at 09:18 PM (#5827126)
Is Joe trying to break Darvish again?

I dunno about that, but pretty sure Darvish is trying to break me.
   41. Brian C Posted: March 30, 2019 at 09:23 PM (#5827128)
Javy Baez is the anti-Darvish in terms of watchability. Runs out an infield hit, steals second, goes to third on a grounder to the shortstop, then scores on a double by Contreras. Baseball needs more players like Javy Baez - all the pitch clocks and 3-batter minimums in the world are no substitute for having players who are simply fun to watch.
   42. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: March 30, 2019 at 09:58 PM (#5827130)
Wait, why is Jose Quintana in?
   43. Kiko Sakata Posted: March 30, 2019 at 10:00 PM (#5827131)
The schedule works out nicely for the Cubs to deal with Darvish's short outing. With an off-day on Monday, they don't need a 5th starter the first time through and pushing Quintana back lets him start in Milwaukee, where he's done great historically. So they can go to Quintana hopefully for 3-4 innings here, keep him fresh, and not have to burn through too much of the bullpen. Still, not what we were hoping for out of Yu in his first start.
   44. Jay Seaver Posted: March 30, 2019 at 10:04 PM (#5827132)
Fantastic catch by Mookie there.
   45. Lassus Posted: March 30, 2019 at 10:15 PM (#5827133)
Boy, it would be a shame if Seth Lugo, like, fell down the stairs or something.
   46. Howie Menckel Posted: March 30, 2019 at 10:40 PM (#5827135)
0 ER for Lugo today!
#keepthefaith
   47. Jay Seaver Posted: March 30, 2019 at 10:44 PM (#5827136)
Rafael Devers just manages to beat out an infield hit and is looking really aggressive this year so far.
   48. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: March 30, 2019 at 10:47 PM (#5827138)
the record 2017 was 1.26


Kind of interesting how we're in a record HR era right now, but it's not as noticeable because nobody is putting up anything close to Sosa-McGwire-Bonds numbers and no oddball 50 HR seasons from Brady Anderson or Greg Vaughn types either.
   49. Jay Seaver Posted: March 30, 2019 at 10:55 PM (#5827140)
The Red Sox starting rotation is not looking great so far.
   50. Kiko Sakata Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:25 PM (#5827143)
So, fans of balls in play should definitely not go looking for replays of the Cubs - Rangers game. Through seven innings, the Rangers have 38 plate appearances - 10 walks, 13 strikeouts, 1 home run, and 14 balls in play. On the bright side for Rangers fans, they're 8-for-14 on balls-in-play (.571 BABIP).
   51. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:33 PM (#5827144)
Oakland getting the hometown strike zone today.
   52. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:34 PM (#5827145)
Only been checking in here and there, but the box score suggests this has been a tedious game to sit through.
   53. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:37 PM (#5827146)
Well, that seemed inevitable.
   54. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:38 PM (#5827147)
So, Yu Darvish, still not good, and Carl Edwards, still broken. Bummer!
   55. Kiko Sakata Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:42 PM (#5827148)
Only been checking in here and there, but the box score suggests this has been a tedious game to sit through.


Incredibly tedious. With that single, walk, home run, walk sequence from Edwards, the Rangers are up to 27 "true outcomes" in 42 plate appearances (64%) and a .600 BABIP (9-for-15).

I give Quintana credit. He went four reasonably solid innings in an unfamiliar role. But even his pitching tended to be pretty tedious - a lot of 3-ball counts. And, of course, Darvish - and now Edwards - were just brutal.
   56. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:43 PM (#5827149)
The Red Sox starting rotation is not looking great so far.

Dallas Keuchel is available.
   57. Kiko Sakata Posted: March 30, 2019 at 11:56 PM (#5827150)
It's a long season and a game like this is inevitable every once in a while, but man was that a brutal game for the Cubs to lose. Offense did what they were supposed to - 6 runs. Shin-Soo Choo struck out his first four times up, but they couldn't get him a 5th time - bases-loaded 2-run single - and Joey Gallo did what he's paid to do - 3-run home run, 8-6 Rangers win. Ugh!
   58. Jay Seaver Posted: March 31, 2019 at 12:19 AM (#5827152)
That Seattle third baseman is having a horrific inning.
   59. Jay Seaver Posted: March 31, 2019 at 12:21 AM (#5827153)
Darn it. Almost another crazy late-night rally.
   60. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: March 31, 2019 at 12:33 AM (#5827154)
This position players pitching craze has gotten ridiculous. The D’Backs were only down 6 runs and let their backup catcher pitch. That put them down 13 runs. Then the Dodgers used their backup catcher to pitch with a lead. He had a 1-2-3 inning, but still...
   61. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: March 31, 2019 at 12:46 AM (#5827155)

Because Manfred has no genitals. That’s why.
   62. Davo Posted: March 31, 2019 at 12:49 AM (#5827156)
The last time a position player entered as a reliever when his team was well ahead — at least, as far as I can tell, no refunds — was October 3, 1920. With the St. Louis Browns leading the Chicago White Sox, 16-7, the Browns sent George Sisler in to pitch. The Hall of Famer, who hit .340 for his career, was apparently keen on giving the crowd at Sportsman’s Park a laugh on the last day of the season, and I would guess the White Sox were fine with it. Sisler had just set the all-time record for hits in a season (257), which would stand for another 84 years, and he was one of the biggest stars in the game.
   63. Howie Menckel Posted: March 31, 2019 at 12:51 AM (#5827159)
well, Sisler had a 126 ERA+ in 111 career MLB IP.

he completed 9 of his 11 starts in 1915-16, including all 3 in 1916 when he allowed 3 ER in 27 IP.

he mostly gave up pitching after that, but tossed a total of 5 scoreless IP in 3 appearances in 1925-26-28.

his son Dave was a mediocre AL pitcher from 1956-62 (well, he was a really good reliever for the Tigers in 1960). son Dick was a similarly skilled 1B-OF in the NL from 1946-53 (though he played for the 1946 Cardinals and 1950 Phillies pennant winners).
   64. akrasian Posted: March 31, 2019 at 01:17 AM (#5827161)
Then the Dodgers used their backup catcher to pitch with a lead. He had a 1-2-3 inning, but still..

He pitched to contact, as you should with a 13 run lead in the ninth - threw two balls and eight strikes. He may be a better pitcher than catcher at this stage. More importantly, after using 7 relievers in the extra-inning game Friday, the Dodgers will have most of their relievers fresh for Sunday.
   65. Panik on the streets of Flushing! (Trout! Trout!) Posted: March 31, 2019 at 11:32 AM (#5827179)
If the Mets sweep the Nationals to start the season, I definitely won't overreact. Definitely will make sure to keep my expectations right in line with the preseason and not get carried away.
   66. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: March 31, 2019 at 02:30 PM (#5827211)
Yelich hit one into the upper deck for his 4th homer in 4 games.
   67. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: March 31, 2019 at 02:32 PM (#5827212)
And then the team gave him the silent treatment when he got to the dugout so he faked giving high fives. So dumb but still funny.
   68. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: March 31, 2019 at 02:41 PM (#5827213)
How long before January 25 is designated an official holiday in Wisconsin? “Schools closed for Yelich-Cain Day.”

   70. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: March 31, 2019 at 02:56 PM (#5827216)
Nice gesture, but I wouldn’t have rewarded kids who misuse ‘home run’ as one word.
   71. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: March 31, 2019 at 02:56 PM (#5827217)
71-be the true grammar police?
   72. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: March 31, 2019 at 02:59 PM (#5827218)
Brewers lead 1-0 through 3 innings on a solo homer, with 9 strikeouts by their starter. Baseball 2019.
   73. salvomania Posted: March 31, 2019 at 03:00 PM (#5827219)
Corbin Burnes has 9 K's against the Cardinals in three innings so far today.

The RHB look helpless against his slider.
   74. salvomania Posted: March 31, 2019 at 03:03 PM (#5827221)
It's Burnes's first MLB start.
   75. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: March 31, 2019 at 03:12 PM (#5827222)
And he just hung a slider that DeJong hit into the upper deck in left

Error--announcers say it was a fastball.
   76. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 31, 2019 at 03:21 PM (#5827225)
Pretty good day so far for the Nationals Trea Turner: 3-Run HR in 3rd; gets on via Fielders’s Choice in 5th, steals 2nd (his 4th SB in 4 attempts), and scores on Rendon’s single. On pace for 200+ SB. 4-2, Nationals.
   77. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: March 31, 2019 at 03:44 PM (#5827229)
I would love it if, just once, a pitcher quick-pitched Princess Braun while he was doing his hold-up-his-hand-while-digging-in routine.
   78. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: March 31, 2019 at 04:05 PM (#5827230)
This giant logo for Douche Kings flashing on my screen for what seems like every transition MLB Network is doing is enough to get me to turn off the channel, something typically only reserved for Chris Russo.
   79. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 31, 2019 at 04:24 PM (#5827234)
Orioles @ Yankees underway after 3+ hour rain delay to start of game.
   80. Jay Seaver Posted: March 31, 2019 at 04:35 PM (#5827235)
The Red Sox just ran up the opponent's pitch count and scored three in the first inning rather than vice versa, and then Porcello was efficient. Maybe the season won't be a disaster after all.
   81. JJ1986 Posted: March 31, 2019 at 04:54 PM (#5827238)
I feel like Mickey Callaway is doing a pretty shitty job. For some reason left in Justin Wilson to face Trea Turner with Rendon behind him.
   82. phredbird Posted: March 31, 2019 at 04:59 PM (#5827240)

wong hit by a throw trying to steal. hit him right behind the ear. that's gotta hurt.
   83. phredbird Posted: March 31, 2019 at 05:06 PM (#5827241)

boy, what a terrible half inning.

sheesh.
   84. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: March 31, 2019 at 05:07 PM (#5827242)
Gamel gets a double, Cain hits a ball that the pitcher deflects so no nobody can make a play and then Yelich does Yelich things with a shot to left center that scores both. 5-4 Crew.

   85. The Yankee Clapper Posted: March 31, 2019 at 05:16 PM (#5827243)
Pretty good day so far for the Nationals Trea Turner: 3-Run HR in 3rd; gets on via Fielders’s Choice in 5th, steals 2nd (his 4th SB in 4 attempts), and scores on Rendon’s single. On pace for 200+ SB. 4-2, Nationals.

Turner’s walk-off HR probably moves his day from “pretty good” to excellent.
   86. Jay Seaver Posted: March 31, 2019 at 05:17 PM (#5827244)
Aaaaaand Porcello just joined the rest of the Red Sox rotation in the terrible start club.

   88. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: March 31, 2019 at 05:32 PM (#5827247)
For f's sakes. The Angels haven't scored AT ALL against the A's starters. 23 innings, no runs. This season's gonna suck so hard.
   89. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: March 31, 2019 at 05:42 PM (#5827248)
A RUN! THEY SCORED A RUN AGAINST AN A'S STARTER! 2-1 Oakland.
   90. Jay Seaver Posted: March 31, 2019 at 05:42 PM (#5827249)
I was about to make a joke about the Red Sox PBP guy having to say it's early enough that they could get back in it, but then J.D. Martinez came up with two on base. Yay J.D.!

Boston starters had a 13.14 ERA before today’s game, slightly better than Porcello’s 13.50 effort in 2.2 innings.

Red Sox scoring runs!

Red Sox SP not looking to sharp to start the season....

That Mookie home run is going to make me regret that I'm going to have to bail on this game for a movie, isn't it?

Hey, Tyler Chatwood still sucks.

Small sample sizes and all, but the Cubs pitching is all around atrocious so far.

Yeah, I'm hating the bullpen. They were good for half a season last year, but this has just been one dumpster fire after another.

Wow, this Dodgers-Diamondbacks game is crazy. Dodgers go from up 4-0 to down 7-4, now up 8-7. Can Jansen hold the lead?

Dennis Eckersley is morally offended by Corey Guerrin. Which makes sense, since with his glacial pace and refusal to throw strikes, he’s the polar opposite of Eck.

At least Cishek looked pretty good.

I have to say, at least today's game has been exciting, after the slog yesterday.

Boy. The Mariners really don't want to win this one.
