It is a bit misleading in runs given up though and stat line. He had two outs in the 5th when he got a third called strike but was a wild pitch(not sure how you get called third strike and wild pitch).  He then walked a guy and was pulled and the reliever gave up 3 run homer.  

Yeah, did anyone see this play? How do you have a wild pitch on a called strike?

I didn't see it but probably a swinging strike on a ball in the dirt that got by the catcher.  Hall throwing in the upper 90s the batter has to get the bat started early.

Well if the batter swung then it's not a called strike.  Unless it's just a mistake in the box score.

I've seen a wild pitch scored on an apparent cross-up that the catcher has no chance to catch because he's looking for a different pitch in a different spot (even though the scorer doesn't really know who crossed up whom). I can't recall ever seeing that when the pitch is in the strike zone, but I guess it could happen.

Where is the box score does it tell you whether it was a called strike or a swinging strike?

Only 58% of his pitches for strikes.

I don't know how accurate Gameday is at that level, but I was following in the first inning and Hall walked a guy on 3-2 and according to the displayed strike zone every single pitch - including all four called balls -- were in the strike zone. Either Gameday is off or the Umpire had a strike zone the size of a deck of cards.

Thanks.    A called strike wild pitch with Hudgins catching.  Wish I could see that one.

Without seeing it, I’d bet that the description as a called strike is erroneous.

FG Longenhagen + Goldstein on their update bumped him to FV 55 same as Rodriguez and pegged him #32 MLB-wide, I believe the highest I've seen for him.    Their couple phrases used the Hader comp, should he not harness the repertoire to SP.

Other side of coin - they keep Rodriguez FV 55 and #28 MLB-wide, shy of Baseball America's exuberant take.

Gunnar entered 50 FV range as #88 overall.

All of those raw ranks a little deflated as Longenhagen on intro simply said he hasn't scrubbed list for recent graduates.

Hall is going to miss a few weeks.  Had an MRI and no structural damage but he has some inflammation.

Not trying to be annoying, but I’ll just note that Elias said “several weeks” before he is able to start throwing again, which to me is different than missing a few weeks. Full quote from the MASN article below:

““There was some tendinitis, some inflammation, so we’ll pull him out of the rotation, let him rest for a couple of weeks and in several weeks start to build him back up and return to the Bowie rotation here in good time,” Elias said.”

I know this is one of these situations where we’ll all hold our collective breath, and not trying to be overly pessimistic. Just want to manage expectations a bit that I’m kind of feeling like it’ll be measured in months (as in 1-2), not weeks, before we’re seeing Hall pitch in Bowie again. That’s the implication I’m getting from Elias. Obviously all good if so, just need to rest the kid up and hopefully get him back to 100%.

So much for the discussion of whether he should be in AAA.    With Smith’s promotion and Hall’s injury, Bowie’s rotation suddenly seems a lot weaker.   Of course, they did win a 1-0 shutout yesterday behind Ofelky Peralta and others.   

Hopefully this is just a bump in the road for Hall.

    • 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
    • https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/11/marlins-attempting-to-trade-jorge-alfaro.html Jorge Alfaro would be a good option.
    • They’re certainly both culpable. I just feel so bad for hitters, though. Their eyes are magnets for little specs of dirt floating around right before the pitch. 
    • Beats me, I dunno. It's my hope that teams get back to a slashing style of play...putting pressure on the defense, more balls in play.  I don't know what analytics and metrics would lead a team to believe that's a good idea but it's nice to think about.   It's the one reason I did like the runner on 2nd to start extra innings.  Forced teams to play small ball, move a runner over, etc.  
    • Sure..but there isn’t a magic button that gets pushed when it’s time to contend.  Just because you want to doesn’t mean you will. So, there is no magic formula on when you contend.  However, learning to win, learning from vets, etc…that is important.  That is needed.  The right players can help with that right now. This is why what I have an issue with.  Some of you feel that just because guys are brought up, that it means we are contenders.  It’s not going to work like that, at least it’s not likely that it will. And then what happens when guys struggle, ala 2021.  Do you just keep pushing things back?  At what point do you say enough is enough? Im There now.  2021 was the year I expected to see real progress but then covid hit and that hurt a team like the Os, perhaps more than most teams.  So, I pushed it back to 2022.  There is no money on the roster.  You have Grayson and Adley, amongst others coming up.  You have trade options and FA that can help the team and not break the bank long term.     I don’t agree with it at all but I can understand why some want to wait.  What I don’t get is why people get all up in arms about those that don’t want to wait and then also say signing guys now ruin anything.  When people say that, it makes me think they either don’t understand what is being done here, don’t understand finances or they don’t believe in the players that are in the organization now.
