Flaherty will get you nowhere?

Recommended Posts

I thought that with his excellent showing during Manny's absence, Ryan might get a start in one of these first two games against the Nats. Lefty on the hill tomorrow, so it'll be Schoop again.

Buck's not the greatest at maximizing his 25 guys, as we know, and I think his failure to get Flaherty in Monday or Wednesday is an example of that. Flaherty's hot; Jonathan's not. I don't think it will wreck Schoop's development, or self-esteem or whatever to play the hot hand for a couple games (vs. RHP) and see what happens.

I'm not one of those guys that thinks that Flaherty would be Bobby Grich 2.0 if he got 500 ABs. But he can be very productive in stretches, and I felt like we were in one of those stretches. Oh well.

Interesting little stat: Flaherty's career OPS, June - Oct. (308 AB): .798.

I think Buck knows what Flash can do. I think he is giving Schoop one last look.

I disagree with you, this team is 8 games over .500 and 2.5 in front of Toronto. Buck is getting the most that he can with the lineup he had. Give credit where credit is due.

Well maybe you are right.

I was listening to the radio the other night and they played an audio clip of Buck taking about Flash, and Buck was saying why he was such a Flash fan, he said it is very rare that a MLB player can play above average defense at three different positions like Flash can.

Schoop has one homer and four RBI's since May 26th. No RBI's in his last 14 games.

It's kind of hard when Cruz has been scoring all of them and Hardy hitting good infront of him as well.

And they are winning. No reason to take away the experience he is getting right now.

Also for a guy who could possibly be our everyday 2B next year, why would we only want him facing lefties. Then next year he wont be use to hitting righties and suck.

Is there some class in cherry picking stats you Flaherty supporters take?

His OPS is down from last year, his OPS+ is flat from last year, his defense is down from last year.

He's a utility guy.

Only 538 career AB's, we don't know what he is .

It's 2295 AB. He's 27.

That's in the majors and minors. It's 538 career major league AB's. I guess I should have clarified that for you. But you keep "cherry picking" how poorly he's done in those 538 AB's and ignore the fact that his career minor league OBP .345 and OPS of .809. Like I said, 538 major league AB's are not enough to say whether he's an everyday major league player or not.

And if Tanaka is injured for a sustained period of time, there goes that part of his value...

    • A million for Tommy Milone? He’ll be lucky to get a minor league contract from someone. 
    • o   You better take a diamond ring ...... you better pawn it, babe.   o
    • The write up makes me think that he is not a starter that Hyde would want to rely on every 5th day.  Maybe more of a swingman.  So that makes it more likely the O's sign a Milone type to begin the season or maybe Milone himself if they can get him for a million for one year.
    • o   That's somewhat of a rare song in which Lennon and Harrison switched on and off for the lead and rhythm. Lennon essentially plays lead for the majority of the song, while Harrison strums the chords. Then for the lead guitar solo it's Harrison playing lead, while Lennon briefly strums the chords. Then at the end of the solo, Lennon goes back to (essentially) playing lead while Harrison strums the chords.   Somewhat similarly, in the song "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" it's Lennon playing the dominant portion of the guitar (strumming/picking extremely fast) while Harrison strums the chords ...... the difference being that unlike the case with "All My Loving", there is no guitar solo in "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You."   o
    • Brian Kenny on with Russo just now had the observation Cash let his starter go past 18 Batters Faced 5 of the first 6 games.   Obviously a 1-0 score and all the big relievers "rested" in an elimination game different circumstances last night. Mad Dog was ready for blood, but Kenny sort of headed him off at the pass surprising by giving his agreement the Snell pull was incorrect. Given the scuffles of the 4-week postseason, I'm not sure sticking with Anderson as the A reliever did him any favors.  His stat producing robot mode was clearly offline (today the inevitable reports acknowledging fatigue a factor).  Fairbanks or Castillo probably would have been better picks last night for in-inning fireman. Kenny in the spot also had the Mad Dog (pining for Snell to have the Smoltz experience) counter the Dodgers did October with a 2-man rotation, and bullpenning to take the WS clincher and survive two NLCS elimination games.  Obviously in the 162, Urias and May take their turns and do fine, but the October Corbin blueprint got drawn a bit more heavily this year. Snell is kind of an interesting gray area of is he a good enough starter to transcend the 18-batter leash as is correctly done with Cole, etc.  He has the Cy, but also like a 3.50-ish expected ERA across the couple of years including the Cy.   I think the Rays see him more JA Happ than Clayton Kershaw.
    • Really can't wait to see when some of the international guys are starting to make noise.  It's good that we've got a decently regarded system without much presence from international prospects but the system will have a real shot in the arm once a few of these guys start to produce.
    • He's really an unknown because of the bat improvements he showed early on the year are for real, he's a steal as a 3rd round pick.
