Was Tony La Russa drunk when he ruined this Mercedes, too?

ZING! 

Looks like it!  See video below:

 

Mercedes scrubbed his Instagram account of all White Sox-related material earlier in the day, while also hinting at potentially walking away from the game. He then posted a message with “It's over” in the photo area after finishing 0-for-2 for Triple-A Charlotte and being removed for pinch-hitter (and fellow catcher) Nate Nolan in the sixth inning. Mercedes thanked his family and his agent in the post, before asking for forgiveness from all those who were offended by “the fruit of my immaturity.”

Kevin Gausman might be the one pitcher who has a chance to take the NL Cy Young award from DeGrom. Gausman leads the NL in ERA at 1.84 with a 0.850 WHIP and a 9-3 record.

I don't think deGrom's arm is going to hold up, seems to keep missing starts here and there.  Sad because he's at 1.08 but doesn't have enough innings to qualify for the ERA lead.

Gausman can do it, for sure.  It doesn't sting as much because he went to Atlanta and Cincinnati before figuring it out...it's not like how Arrieta figured it out directly after he stepped off the plane in Chicago.

Yeah, it's still deGrom's award to lose, but he's got to start pitching regularly the last two months of the season. I don't know what the cutoff is, but I think anything less than 162 innings is going to start putting deGrom at risk not get the Cy Young this year.

And the Mets should stop messing around and shelve deGrom if that's the best thing for his baseball career.

If you’re watching baseball at the Olympics, Hyun-Soo Kim is playing for the South Korean team. 

Who is playing for them if I’m not watching?

Orioles play the Tigers this weekend and we'll get to Jonathan Schoop who is having a nice season. I haven't heard his name come up in trade talks, so I assume he isn't getting moved by tomorrow. 

Schoop is batting .284 with 17 home runs, 60 RBI's and an OPS+ of 120.

    • I guess you’re too young to remember when the goalposts were at the front of the end zone.  Or when a jump shot from 24 feet was only worth 2 points.    
    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
    • Or they need to run it again in 2 weeks!  Lol
