Phillies tied for first. Another series coming up with the Barves, who've had their number since opening day.
   102. Howie Menckel Posted: May 19, 2018 at 07:00 PM (#5675805)
did they say that Dominguez has a perfect game? looks like 0 H, 0 BB allowed in 6.6 MLB IP, no?
   103. perros Posted: May 19, 2018 at 07:03 PM (#5675806)
Maybe he can displace Neris. The Phillies have a couple of better options, regardleaa.
   104. Bote Man is no David Posted: May 19, 2018 at 07:12 PM (#5675807)
Maybe he can displace Neris.

I hope not! I'm still pulling for the Neris/Sisco matchup when the Phillies play the Orioles in early July, then they can get rid of him.

Cubs went 1 for 16 with RISP game 1, and are 0 for 3 so far game 2. Unreal, not even productive outs.
   106. Howie Menckel Posted: May 19, 2018 at 07:25 PM (#5675815)
Didi with a well-earned night off

surely there is an app I can install so that I get a text message whenever he is about to bat, right? nothing personal, Didi, but this slump is epic. I thought I was over it when the 0-for-30 ended, but he immediately got right back onto an 0-for-15 horse

#1for45
   107. perros Posted: May 19, 2018 at 07:30 PM (#5675817)
Crazy thing is, Didi's OPS is still 858.
   108. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 19, 2018 at 07:56 PM (#5675828)
Inside-the-park HR for Aaron Hicks. Hit off the padding of the RF wall, higher than a leap could have reached, and right fielder took himself out of the playing running into wall.
   109. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 19, 2018 at 08:22 PM (#5675830)
GLEYBER!!! And it's 5-2 Yanks.
   110. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: May 19, 2018 at 08:22 PM (#5675831)
GLEYBER TIME!!!
   111. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 19, 2018 at 08:23 PM (#5675832)
Gleyber Torres 3-run HR (#4) puts Yankees up 5-2 over Royals.

EDIT: No details, no cokes, 109-10.
   112. Jay Seaver Posted: May 19, 2018 at 08:42 PM (#5675836)
It is good to have a Mookie Betts.
   113. Jay Seaver Posted: May 19, 2018 at 08:44 PM (#5675837)
Benintendi isn't bad either.
   114. Howie Menckel Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:13 PM (#5675841)
Kendrick to the DL
   115. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:15 PM (#5675842)
Sanchez dinger, now just needs a triple for the cycle. 6-3 Yanks.
   116. Benji Gil Gamesh VII - The Opt-Out Awakens Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:24 PM (#5675848)
Sanchez dinger, now just needs a triple for the cycle.
Would be the first of his career, so that would be fun.
   117. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:27 PM (#5675850)
Two pitches?
Rich Hill lasted just two pitches against the Washington Nationals. The veteran Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander was pulled after an 0-2 count to leadoff hitter Trea Turner on Saturday night with an apparent recurrence of the blister problem that has already put him on the disabled list twice this season. Television close-ups showed a broken and bloody fingernail on Hill's left middle finger.
   118. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:45 PM (#5675852)
Now THAT'S the Betances we expect.
   119. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:51 PM (#5675854)
And Stanton finally gets one out after two near misses on the warning track.
   120. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:52 PM (#5675855)
Sanchez dinger, now just needs a triple for the cycle.

Can he stop at 3rd base on his HR?
   121. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:53 PM (#5675856)
Awwwww, Sanchez should've stayed at third, which would've given him the cycle. Two homers in a night is just routine. 8-3 Yanks.
   122. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 19, 2018 at 09:54 PM (#5675857)
Royals tossed the fan who went into the fountain for Stanton's home run ball, and took away the ball. Boo! No fun!
   123. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 19, 2018 at 10:08 PM (#5675860)
Dammit, the Red Sox are back in first place.

EDIT: Well, for about five minutes, anyway.
   124. Howie Menckel Posted: May 19, 2018 at 10:11 PM (#5675861)
best fan ejection ever was from the Marlins franchise's first game

opposing team hits HR. fan who catches ball - in a nod to the Wrigley Field tradition - tosses it onto the field

security did not believe his explanation
   125. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 19, 2018 at 10:11 PM (#5675862)
Yankees go 3-for-3 on challenges, as Torres kept tag on runner who popped up off the base trying to advance on wild pitch that bounced back to Sanchez.
   126. Cowboy Popup Posted: May 19, 2018 at 10:15 PM (#5675864)
Josh Freaking Hader!!! That was insane!

It wasn't an ejection, but one time at Wrigley I saw a fan catch a home run by a Met, and then throw back another ball he had in his pocket. The Bleacher Bums hounded him out of the bleachers, but he kept the ball.
   128. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 19, 2018 at 10:42 PM (#5675868)
Max Scherzer goes 7 innings, 121 pitches, striking out 13, while giving up 2 runs. Also 1-2 at the plate, with RBI single. Nationals might need him to DH in interleague games if some hitters don't get healthy. 4-2 Nationals.
   129. Drexl Spivey Posted: May 19, 2018 at 10:45 PM (#5675869)
Josh Freaking Hader!!! That was insane!


Hader struck out the last six batters that he faced.

He now has 56 K's in 27.1 innings pitched this year.
   130. Howie Menckel Posted: May 19, 2018 at 11:08 PM (#5675872)
well, he walked a guy in the middle
#pedant

meanwhile Sergio Romo starts for the Rays - his 1st in 589 career MLB appearances
he Ks the side vs Angels, all righty batters - then departed

scuttlebutt is he might start again tomorrow for same reason

   131. Randomly Fluctuating Defensive Metric Posted: May 19, 2018 at 11:41 PM (#5675884)
Didi is still looking good from a slugging standpoint, though his average has obviously cratered with the prolonged struggle. Ultimately he still has a great K:BB ratio, so if he can figure his way out of all the weak contact, he's still on pace for a very good to great season for a shortstop. To my uneducated eye, it seems like his bottom hand isn't staying level through his swing. That means he's still making contact but with a loop in his swing producing weakly hit balls in play. This is how Didi usually looks when he's going bad: weak contact without walks. This is just an extreme case. Like his outburst in April was pretty extreme.
   132. Howie Menckel Posted: May 19, 2018 at 11:57 PM (#5675888)
we're still talking about a 125 OPS+ in 2018 for a player with a career 97 OPS+ in 2648 PA who was 105 last year and 97 the year before, and who is age 28

regression is mean

25 walks last season, 21 walks on May 20th, 2018. I'll still bet on an improved OPS+ at the end of the long year. 105 last year.
   134. Bote Man is no David Posted: May 20, 2018 at 10:10 AM (#5675926)
The only leader board on which Bryce Harper appeared when I checked the other day was Bases on Balls, and about 7 or 8 of those were IBB before opponents got wise and started pitching to him again; now he gets himself out, gratis. Nobody would confuse 2018 Bryce Harper with BRYCE HARPER, so YMMV on Didi at this juncture.
   135. Bote Man is no David Posted: May 20, 2018 at 10:14 AM (#5675929)

The Marlins are touting their 25th anniversary weekend coming up June 8-10, so there's a chance to re-enact this moment. Especially with their pitching staff!

EDIT: Upon further review, their opponent will be the San Diego Padres, so nix that "opposing team hits home run" thing. At least they have the decency to drop ticket prices to reflect what they were way back in 1993, so the price of the ticket matches the product on the field.
   136. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 10:27 AM (#5675934)
Always did like Matt Kemp.
   137. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 10:39 AM (#5675936)
Interesting tidbit from espn -- Paul Goldschmidt is 0-for-77 against pitches hit that are 96+ mph. The HR against Matz was 93 mph.

The suggestion is that older hitters with slower reflexes can't catch up to the increased heat, making analytics-focused mgmt correct in bypassing older hitters. Plus the move to more heat from the pen and less wood on the bench.

Not to dispute the larger point, but Goldy's drop off from 29-30 has been, shall we say, significant. Guys were throwing 96+ last year too and he had no trouble. So is this to say that the scouting reports on Goldy have caught up in the offseason and they are simply pounding him with fastballs? Certainly MLB is and has been heading in that direction over the years.
   139. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 11:11 AM (#5675943)
It's hard to say with such a small sample. Is he hurt a bit? One thing with older players is small injuries can make a big difference. Scoutimg has certinly improved, it doesn't take long for opposing teams to pitch away from hitters' strengths. One of the fun things about baseball is watching hitters adjust over time.

Aaron Judge certainly figured out a better approach to breaking balls this season, perhaps as simple as looking for them.

Nationals make it official: Juan Soto called up to the big leagues. Moises Sierra designated for assignment.

Anybody want a light-hitting AAA backup outfielder for cheap??

Mike Rizzo said the thing every 19-year-old he’s ever pulled up (Justin Upton, Harper, Robles, Soto) had in common — they aren’t free swingers. They know the strike zone.

Justin Turner is sitting at the media gate at Nationals Park because security won’t let him through with his carry-on bag without a thorough search. It just isn’t the Dodgers’ year.

Wieters said the tendon that connects his hamstring to his knee popped, so surgery was to remove it. Now, normal hamstring rehab. He thinks six weeks after the incision heals, which is still a couple weeks away.

Ummm, after the tendon is removed, how does the hamstring do anything??

Also, anyone need a slightly-used switch-hitting catcher?
   143. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 11:38 AM (#5675949)
How can be sure Turner's not carrying a Quran in his bag? Plus maybe the home team won't get swept.
   144. Spahn Insane Posted: May 20, 2018 at 11:52 AM (#5675952)
Attending my first game of the season, at the GAB. Let’s see if Darvish has a good non-Brewer start in him.

It's Matt Wieters. His hamstring can move other people's legs.

I've gone to about ten games at GAB, and it doesn't matter what time of year, it is always a steambath. 3B/LF are a definite no go at GAB.

No Bryant in the lineup. Any word?

Sergio "Old Hoss" Romo is the Rays' starting pitcher for a 2nd straight day. The workhorse struck out the side on 18 pitches yesterday before departing.
   152. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 01:53 PM (#5675980)
Not a shocker the Rays are the first to start a reliever. At .500 despite a rough start, they are innovators, and rarely terrible.

Too bad they play in such a shitty place.
   153. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 02:06 PM (#5675983)

J.D. Martinez ties Mookie Betts for the league lead in home runs. The two AL East teammates everyone was expecting to do that.
   160. Perry Posted: May 20, 2018 at 03:06 PM (#5675991)
Matt Carpenter still trying to hit through the shift, but starting to get some better BABIP luck.

Hoskins breaks up Flaherty's no-hitter and shutout. (Only the 4th inning, though.)

Sonny Gray retires first 12 batters on 40 pitches; Yankees lead Royals 3-0 after 4 on Tyler Austin 2-run HR & Austin Romine RBI-single.

EDIT: Stanton double & Hicks triple makes it 4-0.

EDIT II: Tyler Austin's 2nd 2-run HR makes it 6-0.

I'm no expert, but I don't think it's good when your helmet comes off when you swing like O'Neill's just did, even if it was a line single to CF.

Todd Dybas @Todd_Dybas
Left-handers are demolishing Harper this season. He’s hitting .180 against them with 13 strikeouts in 50 ABs. He’s career .257 against lefties. This looks like 2016 when he hit .226 against lefties.

Hmmmm...what was notable about Bryce Harper's 2016 season?? Let me think? Rhymes with ninjary probably.
   171. cardsfanboy Posted: May 20, 2018 at 03:43 PM (#5676010)
Flaherty looks pretty sharp today.
   172. cardsfanboy Posted: May 20, 2018 at 03:50 PM (#5676013)
Another extremely close play, I think the ump got it right, but I could see it going either way on replay.
   173. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:02 PM (#5676017)
Puig. Dodgers 5-2.

So who gets dropped from the rotation when they activate Reyes later this month? (He had a 7.2 3 0 0 1 13 line in his most recent rehab start.)
   175. cardsfanboy Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:03 PM (#5676019)
O'Neil with nearly a one handed homerun. 3-1 Cardinals.

Gant will be dropped first, his upside isn't on par with the others. Martinez still hasn't resumed baseball activities(last I heard, so who knows when he'll make it back) So you have a rotation of Flaherty, Weaver, Mikolas, Wacha and Reyes until Martinez gets back.
   177. perros Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:08 PM (#5676022)
Kruk makes a good point that the middle infielder needs to bring his glove right to the base rather than reaching out for the basestealer.

With replay being a thing now, most definitely makes sense, it used to be if the throw beat you(like it clearly did on Fowler's steal) the ump called the out, but with replay, the umps and replay crews are paying more attention to where the tag lands....
   179. cardsfanboy Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:23 PM (#5676026)
Jack Flaherty's high school team had three pitchers drafted in the first round(Lucas Giolito and Max Fried) (two of them in 2012 and Flaherty in 2014)

7 innings of one hit ball(a homerun by Hoskins) by Flaherty 11k's 1 bb.... Good day, hopefully Holland is not rested so he has a chance at a win.
   181. phredbird Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:27 PM (#5676029)
oh good, matheny lets flaherty bat in the 7th. why not, the way the relievers have been pitching. give 'em a rest, give the kid a chance to go deep.
   182. cardsfanboy Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:29 PM (#5676031)
I think that McCarver and McLaughlin were correct in that they should have let Flaherty go to the plate to get the ovation and then pull him for a pinch hitter. There is no reason to let Flaherty pitch the 8th inning.

Carpenter is just absolutely killing the ball this week.
   183. cardsfanboy Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:32 PM (#5676033)
Jose Martinez and Pham have been battling for the past week or two for high average on the team... Martinez just took the lead from Pham .313 to .312.
   184. phredbird Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:32 PM (#5676034)
this is more like it. carpenter now 10 for his last 20 with a double, then driven in by martinez. and o'neill follows with another hit!

dan says carp has raised his BA 50 pts in the last 5 games.

Sonny Gray appears done after 8 innings (92 pitches), allowing 4 hits & 1run, with 5Ks. 8-1.

If I used BBRef PI correctly the Sox 13 hit shutout today is;

Sox’ first (and only ) w/12+ hits allowed since 5/16/1915 vs. Indians
First in MLB w/12+ hits since 8/25/2008 (13 hits) Phillies vs. Dodgers

Flaherty to pitch the 8th and allows a hit to the first guy he faces.

oops, flaherty greeted with a sharp single right away in the 8th ... now i'm starting to worry.

Miguel Andujar & Austine Romine HR back-to-back. Both with 3-hit games. 10-1, NYY, heading to bottom of 9th.

OK, good K for flaherty. if he can't get this next guy out, i say pull him. he's at 113 pitches.

I still have a small man crush on Maikel Franco...must be the dreds... He hasn't reached the promise of his rookie season, but I just seem to like him for some reason.

I'm not a fan of letting Flaherty go up to 120 pitches.... Considering our health issues, pushing anything seems to be a bit risky.

Post game interview, for yesterday, Matheny said that the reason Hicks didn't go two yesterday is that he's had discomfort in his arm the previous times he's gone two innings.

Kendrys Morales threw a shutout inning in relief for the Jays today.

He was the only pitcher for the Jays not to give up a hit or a run.

mike takes him out after that strikeout .... 120 pitches.

kid looks gassed.

13 strikeouts, 120 pitches..yes just pull him.

I just love the ovation that a performance like Flaherty gets... and McCarver's comment was hilarious "Justify, who won the Preakness yesterday, didn't get an applause like that."
   199. phredbird Posted: May 20, 2018 at 04:48 PM (#5676056)
geez, flaherty just threw 120 pitches and he's standing around in the dugout without any kind of wrap or ice on his arm. these youngsters ... they think they'll live forever.
