HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?!

I’m going to my first ever game in SF tonight. We happened to time our visit to when the Phillies are in town. Just my luck, I get to see Vince Velasquez start tonight! Johnny Cueto goes for the Giants; I love to watch him pitch.

How does one get a news article posted these days? I submitted something yesterday, still haven't seen it go up even though today's omnichatter is now up.

It's possible I submitted it incorrectly, but I don't want to resubmit if this is just the normal delay.
   4. Snowboy Posted: June 18, 2021 at 04:57 PM (#6024994)
Edmundo that's awesome. Hopefully you get a chance to walk around, one of the best things about PacBell/AT&T/Oracle Park is doing a lap of the concourse.

Bring a sweatshirt/jacket. Even though it feels warm this afternoon, even if it's enemy colors, bring it. If all you do is sit on it, you can complain about the advice later. Looking forward to your review.

There has been a lot of grumbling in various threads about the user-submission process over the last few years, with a noticeable lack of response from the powers that be. While I appreciate the efforts of those who regularly submit items and appear to have “keys” to the site to approve their own submissions, most, if not all, of those folks don’t seem to be green lighting the submissions of others, much to the site’s detriment. At least that’s how it looks from my own experience, and the comments of many others here. I’d certainly welcome a clear statement as to who is supposed to be approving submissions these days and why so many of us have experienced delays.

Going into today's games, the Orioles, Pirates, and D-Backs have a combined 32 consecutive losses.

Really puts my daily top-line all-caps whine into perspective. I'm not gonna stop doing it, mind you, but I appreciate the perspective.

Thanks, Snowboy, I’ll heed your advice.

Yesterday we went from 50 in the AM in Tahoe, to 111 at the Jelly Belly Factory near Sacramento to 69 in SF in the late afternoon. It’s a beautiful 75 in SF today but the wind has picked up.
   9. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 07:40 PM (#6025015)
Martinez hits the first batter he sees in the 1st, Acuña, Cardinals maintaining their record-setting hit-batsmen pace.

Now just 43 hit batsmen from the record, with 92 to play after tonight.
   10. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 07:44 PM (#6025016)
aaaand Molina guns down Acuña trying to steal.
   11. Pirate Joe Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:06 PM (#6025020)
Going into today's games, the Orioles, Pirates, and D-Backs have a combined 32 consecutive losses.


In the Pirates 10 consecutive losses they had not scored more than four runs in any of the games. Tonight they had five runs before they made their second out.

   12. Walt Davis Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:22 PM (#6025023)
How many times are the Cubs gonna wear these Little League unis?

   13. Walt Davis Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:32 PM (#6025027)
Y'all clearly need some entertaining so ... top 20 career K/9, minimum 1000 IP ... #10 and #16 will impress me. Go!
   14. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:48 PM (#6025030)
Acuña hit by Martinez for the second time tonight, Cardinals' pitchers' 54th of the season in 70 games. Forty-two more for the single-season MLB record. Will shatter it in early to mid August at their current pace.
   15. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:49 PM (#6025031)
#10 and #16 will impress me. Go!

Gerritt Cole, Max Scherzer, Jason de Grom.
   16. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:50 PM (#6025032)
Does Kimbrel have 1000 innings? If so, Kimbrel.
   17. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:50 PM (#6025033)
Trevor Bauer? Not sure how high his K rate was earlier in his career...
   18. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:52 PM (#6025034)
A lot of those high-K '60s and 70s guys were also throwing huge innings, so their rates weren't actually that high. Bob Gibson---second man to 3000, after Walter Johnson--only had a couple seasons in which he averaged even 8K/9, and never had a 9K/9 season, IIRC.
   19. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:55 PM (#6025035)
After losing like 16 out of 20 the Cardinals then swept the Marlins.

Then last night almost no-hit by Charlie Morton in getting shut out by the Braves, tonight down 8-1 as Carlos Martinez once again gives up boatloads of runs in limited innings. Now sporting a 6.62 ERA in 71 innings, despite actually having a couple decent starts this year.
   20. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 08:56 PM (#6025037)
Albies 3/4 of the way to a cycle, and we're in the 4th inning. Just needs the elusive triple.

(he's also currently leading the NL in triples, with 5)
   21. Walt Davis Posted: June 18, 2021 at 09:24 PM (#6025045)
Cole, Scherzer, Jacob de Grom and Bauer all correct. Kimbreal a mere 403 innings away from joining the list. :-)

This Cardinals HBP thing; yeah, it's a lot, but.. one good metric of how amazing/incredible/surreal/unbelievable a stat is, is how much further ahead than everyone else a player or team is from others.

Team HBP leaders, 2021, going into tonight

TEAM HBP
STL . 52
CHC . 44
DET . 41
S D . 40

I'd put the odds of the Cardinals leading the majors in pitcher HBP no better than 50/50. And it's not like this is a trend.. STL finished below avg in plunking batters in 2020.
   24. Bret Sabermatrician Posted: June 18, 2021 at 09:44 PM (#6025051)
The Pirates, Orioles, and D-Backs are all currently not losing.

Well that decision's not going in the David Ross highlight film

EDIT and a pitching line you don't see every day: 6 IP, 7 H, 8 ER, 3 BB, 2 K and just 84 pitches for Zach Davies. It was about as well-pitched as an 8-run effort can be.
   28. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 10:25 PM (#6025068)
one good metric of how amazing/incredible/surreal/unbelievable a stat is, is

The current record is 95, by the 2003 Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Thirty-six teams since 1900 have hit at least 80 batters, with 29 of those since 2000. So the leader board is mostly "modern" staffs, but only two of the top 10 seasons have been in the last 10 years, and one of those was in 2011.

Three teams this year are on pace to break the record: the Tigers, just barely, with 96; the Cubs, comfortably, with 103; and then the Cardinals, shattering the record by *30*, or more than 30% more than the current record. I mean, I notice it because I'm a Cardinals fan and they seemed to be hitting an abnormal amount of batters, and then I looked up the record, and thought, Huh, this makes sense because it has seemed extreme.
   29. Walt Davis Posted: June 18, 2021 at 10:26 PM (#6025070)
Anyway, time for some NOT mutually exclusive hints for you slackers.

Mostly current guys of course.

5 HoFers, you haven't named one yet. Plus one guy infamously compared to one of those HoFers.

1 pure reliever, one mostly reliever who got enough starts early in his career to get over 1000 IP total.

2 CYA winners not already hinted at.

That should get you most of the pretty easy ones and maybe a couple of the tougher ones.

Here's a freebie to save you a guess ... Gio Gonzalez had a higher K/9 than Clemens.
   30. salvomania Posted: June 18, 2021 at 10:29 PM (#6025073)
Eight teams are on pace to get no more hit batsmen in 2021 than the Cardinals already have.
   31. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 18, 2021 at 10:38 PM (#6025077)

The Pirates led 5-0 after one and 11-1 after 6 ... and did manage to hold on for an 11-10 win with the leading run on 2nd.

Natural Selection.
   39. JJ1986 Posted: June 18, 2021 at 10:50 PM (#6025086)
One is definitely Randy Johnson. I think the pure reliever is Hoffman. The mostly reliever may be Joaquin Benoit.
   40. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: June 18, 2021 at 10:50 PM (#6025087)

Bryce Harper, you suck !
   49. Walt Davis Posted: June 18, 2021 at 11:04 PM (#6025096)
Unit and Hoffman both correct. That takes care of two HoFers and the pure reliever. But Benoit is #24, good guess though.

And true that Robbie Ray is 87.1 IP away from moving into the #1 spot. Interestingly, Sam McDowell held the record as late as 1970 before falling back behind the guy who held the record before that. Rube Waddell held the record for 36 years before Paige ... so maybe even longer until earlier this week. :)

Two more guesses - Lincecum, Darvish.
   57. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 18, 2021 at 11:19 PM (#6025106)
Felix Hernandez?
   58. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 18, 2021 at 11:21 PM (#6025107)
I assume Ryan and Clemens are on there? And Billy Wagner if he reached 1,000 IP

Edit: never mind, Wagner never got to 1,000 IP and we already got the pure reliever.
   59. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 18, 2021 at 11:25 PM (#6025109)
Maybe Koufax? And JR Richard? Just thinking of guys who put up 300-K seasons.

Kerry Wood as the mostly reliever?
   60. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 18, 2021 at 11:31 PM (#6025110)
Ok I see that 3 of my guesses were correct. Going to call it a night.
   61. Walt Davis Posted: June 18, 2021 at 11:32 PM (#6025111)
Lincecum, Darvish and Ryan yes .... I basically already told you Clemens was a no. :) Scratch another HoFer and a CYA winner off the list.

Wood #7 & Koufax #20 yes. Wood was not who I was thinking of as the mostly reliever although the description fits. That Koufax is still on the list is pretty impressive.

EDIT: anyway, done for the day, we can finish it off tomorrow.
   63. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 18, 2021 at 11:43 PM (#6025113)

I hadn't read that far down yet when you made the comment about Clemens (hence I missed that people got Hoffman as the pure reliever). Wood was a starter for longer than I remembered. Most of his appearances came in relief but most of his innings -- and Ks -- came a starter.

How does one get a news article posted these days? I submitted something yesterday, still haven't seen it go up even though today's omnichatter is now up.


I've had 4–6 submissions in the last few months never appear. villiageidiom saved one or two others of mine. I appreciate RoyalsRetro getting his own submission up—seriously, take those away and there'd barely be anything—but I'm no longer going to put any effort into article contributions since without keys it seems like a lost cause.
   67. Hombre Brotani Posted: June 19, 2021 at 12:57 AM (#6025122)
Shohei Ohtani with a 2-homer night after pitching six strong IP the night before.

He's only been in the league a couple of years, but he's my favorite thing in baseball, ever.
   68. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: June 19, 2021 at 01:19 AM (#6025123)
Kudos to the Giants for the information supplied on the scoreboards. All the stuff you’d expect plus pitcher vs batter stats plus stolen base stats for a runner after a steal. It was a great experience even with the Phils putting on a clown show.
   69. The Duke Posted: June 19, 2021 at 08:06 AM (#6025137)

   71. The Duke Posted: June 19, 2021 at 09:40 AM (#6025145)
Ok, I looked up the old guys and their K rates are very low. So I’ll go with relievers: dibble, Lee smith, rosenthal
   72. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 19, 2021 at 02:58 PM (#6025168)

Lindor 3/3 so far today with 2 HR and 5 RBI. Slowly pushing that OPS up. Mets leading 5-0.

Can't believe I forgot about Pedro in Walt's list.

I assume the rest of them are current or very recent starting pitchers, and another "mostly reliever" in addition to Wood. No more pure relievers and probably no more guys who pitched most of their career before 2000.
   73. Howie Menckel Posted: June 19, 2021 at 03:20 PM (#6025170)
Lucchesi terrible
Peterson terrible

then Mets take pitch-calling decisions away from them a couple of weeks ago and have Cs do it instead. since:
Lucchesi good
Peterson really good
   74. Snowboy Posted: June 19, 2021 at 03:29 PM (#6025171)
Edmundo it sounds like you enjoyed your experience in SF @PacBell/AT&T/Oracle. Hope the rest of your trip is as great.
Sorry we couldn't prepare you for everything, but that's part of life's Journey.
Open q: I've never been to Philadelphia, if I get there some summer is Citizen's Bank Park worth a visit?
   75. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 19, 2021 at 04:38 PM (#6025174)

Sorry Snowboy, I haven't been to CBP since the year it opened and don't have strong recollections of it, either positive or negative.
   76. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 19, 2021 at 04:49 PM (#6025175)
Anyway, I mentioned that I tried to post an article a few days ago. Here's the article: Vlad Jr. is Proving that Launch Angle isn’t Everything.

The gist is that Vlad Jr. has improved his production significantly this year despite only a very small increase in launch angle. But his Barrel percentage is way up, so basically he's just hitting the snot out of the ball despite the lack of launch angle.

Guerrero is leading the league in homers, but he is ranked 109th in launch angle at 7.9 degrees...

Adam Duvall is leading the league in launch angle at 22.7.

Guerrero’s main competitor for the home run crown, Shohei Ohtani, is launching balls at 16.9 degrees, ranking him 23rd in the league.


The article made me think of this thread from February. It was a typical "best shape of his life" article about Vlad, although he really did appear to be in the BSOHL. There was some discussion in that thread about how Vlad's main problem was a low launch angle, so I found it interesting that he's managing to succeed in spite of that.

He was in the top 7% for exit velocity and hard hit % (14th overall in this stat), and had a 24.0% LD%.

Power is not a problem for him at all. It's all about launch angle.

Apparently not.
   77. Howie Menckel Posted: June 19, 2021 at 05:05 PM (#6025179)
2 more today for Duvall, who in 2020-21 has 32 HR in 417 AB.
that seems like a lot.

although he did go 33/552 in 2016
and 31/587 in 2017

Duvall, a Marlin, turns 33 in September
   78. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: June 19, 2021 at 05:09 PM (#6025181)

Lucchesi terrible
Peterson terrible

then Mets take pitch-calling decisions away from them a couple of weeks ago and have Cs do it instead. since:
Lucchesi good
Peterson really good


And now Lucchesi is apparently going on the DL with elbow inflammation. Sigh.
   79. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 19, 2021 at 05:12 PM (#6025182)
Yankees come back from a 4-0 deficit to defeat the A’s 7-5, with the game ending on the rare Chapman-to-Chapman 103 MPH swinging strikeout.
   80. Walt Davis Posted: June 19, 2021 at 06:57 PM (#6025191)
Update: I only noticed one name to add -- Pedro -- sorry if I missed any others

1 Sale
2 Darvish
3 deGrom
4 Scherzer
5 Johnson
6
7 Wood
8 Cole
9 Pedro
10
11 Bauer
12
13 Kershaw
14 Ryan
15
16
17
18 Hoffman
19 Lincecum
20 Koufax

So hint time. Every one we are missing is currently active although one has been on the IL all year.

#6: I thought this one would be reasonably easy so I'll give you the easy clue: a #1 overall pick

#10: A very tough one, a tough one to give a clue for: A 2-time AS who's not that old but might be at the end of the line. Has been on both sides of a questionable vet-prospect trade.

#12: 2-time CYA winner

#15: A mostly starter who has spent time with 10 diffrent teams ... and is one of my personal favorite pitchers

#16: This is the mostly reliever I was thinking of (sorry, Wood also qualified for that clue). This reliever was once infamously compared to a HoFer (also on the list) ... although that was probably true of Wood as well, not so infamously.

#17: Missed a lot of injury time when young, is currently on the shelf, never made an AS team, did win a comeback player of the year award.

Snowboy, CBP is worth the visit. It’s probably middle of the pack of the parks. Of the newer ones I’ve been to SF>SD>PHL=WSH>>CIN>>NYM. Ashburn Alley beyond left field is the premium real estate for food, including Bulls BBQ, which is fine and Greg Luzinski might be hanging around.
If you want to do a minor league game, AA Reading is about 70 NW of CBP. Now called First Energy Stadium, it’s as old as I am (1951) and has a wonderful old fashioned feel to it. The city of Reading is in terrible shape, but the ballpark is in a safe area.
An Independence Hall tour is a must. You can see the enclosed Liberty bell across the street or wait in line to go inside. Personally I don’t think the wait is quite worth it but YMMV..
I would suggest Valley Forge Park as well as a must see, about 25 miles west of Ind. Hall. There’s a feeling of awe for me as this was the place that George Washington managed to keep a ragtag army together. What kind of leadership skills that guy had

Eat cheesesteaks and soft pretzels.

Oh, and there’s a world class art museum. You can make like Rocky, if that’s your thing! The armor collection is awesome.
Nearby is one of the great private Impressionist museums, the Barnes as well as the small Rodin museum.

If you have kids, the Franklin Institute is a great science museum. For little kids, the Please Touch Museum is good.

There’s more but I think those are the highlights.

Reliever - Oliver Perez? Wasn’t he compared to Koufax by someone?
   90. JJ1986 Posted: June 19, 2021 at 08:59 PM (#6025205)
I don't know if 15 or 17 is Rich Hill.
   91. salvomania Posted: June 19, 2021 at 09:06 PM (#6025209)
Carlos Carrasco for 17?
   92. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 19, 2021 at 09:08 PM (#6025210)
Nationals salvage a split of today’s doubleheader with the Mets, 6-2, largely on Kyle Schwarber’s 2 HRs - a long solo shot to lead off the bottom of the 1st, and a 3-run wallop in the 4th. He’s played rather well for a guy who was non-tendered. I’ll be in the ballpark for tomorrow’s game.
   93. salvomania Posted: June 19, 2021 at 09:27 PM (#6025214)
Uh-oh, Tatis pulled for the bottom of the 5th after running the bases in the top half...

anti-Mets bias!

Citi Field tends to do fairly well in rankings by those outside of Philly.
:)

first list I saw was NBCSports.com:

6 SF
7 SD
10 NYM
18 PHI
22 CIN
23 WSH

or list as SF>SD>NYM>PHI>CIN>WSH
to your: SF>SD>PHL=WSH>>CIN>>NYM

you're a match except for the NL East
   95. Walt Davis Posted: June 19, 2021 at 09:52 PM (#6025220)
#83: Assuming you mean Matt Garza not Mark DeRosa then you're correct ... and his name is ... (chill, it's in the list below)

#85: No.

#86: Yes.

#87: None of those.

#88: One of those -- Carrasco.

#89: Yes ... it was Scott Boras who comped him to Koufax. Scott may have had ulterior motives.

#90: Hill is #15

#91: Yes

The final list:

1 Sale
2 Darvish
3 deGrom
4 Scherzer
5 Johnson
6 Strasburg
7 Wood
8 Cole
9 Pedro
10 Archer
11 Bauer
12 Kluber
13 Kershaw
14 Ryan
15 Hill
16 Perez
17 Carrasco
18 Hoffman
19 Lincecum
20 Koufax

Not watching the game, but apparently he landed awkwardly on his (previously injured) left shoulder after a diving attempt on a grounder in the 5th.

I found the Mets stadium sterile with needlessly long lines. It took at least a half an hour to get in the darn place.

when was that?

NYC is a bit .... aggressive when it comes to security. possibly there is a reason for that

nothing for the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, the OF food court area w the little kids 'field,' the food, the lounges, the upside-down top hat where a Big Apple rises out of it when the Mets hit a home run, the 'bridge' that goes across the OF spectator area, the RF overhang, the McFadden's sports bar?

all of it is "sterile"?

what is the big signature element to the Phillies park? (and no, the in-house jail to handle all the hooligans may be unique, but it doesn't count.)

Wasn’t it the prior stadium that had a jail?
