Playing in an empty stadium is a terrible decision

Recommended Posts

Without any crowd noise, I wonder if the mics are going to pick up a lot more interesting banter from the players. I am predicting some good F-bombs today.

I'll pick him up for you. The raccoon was a nice touch.

The racoon picture was earlier in this thread I think. The Complacent Reynolds add-on is epic. LOL

That takes the cake. At least the players are keeping an open mind. I think this is going to be hell-a fun for the players.

Some players have played two decades n never played in a empty stadium like this (although it might be the Norm for the Phillies soon). It will be quite a story for them.

I could swear I just heard a roar from the crowd.

I know this because they routinely say it in interviews when asked about the crowd noise. I am most definitely not a world class athlete, but I can tell you that I never even noticed the crowd when I was playing ball. Many times I would be told about something that happened in the stands after the game and I was clueless. I missed my Mom or Dad showing up a bunch of times in high school. I'm done trying to convince anyone of this issue. Watch the game and you tell me. They look just like normal.

Appreciate your insight. You are closer to a WCA than most of us.

And you know this because A:) you are a world class athlete or B:) You hang out with a bunch of world class athletes?

LOL, Why does Harbaugh always exhort the crowd to get loud? Do you not think the decibels at Camden yards during last years playoffs was a little hard on the other teams?

Crowd noise in Football is different reason. Teams want the crowd to get loud when the other team is on offense b/c it disrupts communication before a play starts.

    • You are right..it’s not the answer I’m looking for because it’s not an answer to the question you were asked. If I ask you, what is your favorite color and you tell me a banana, that is an answer and it’s not one I’m looking for..that doesn’t mean in insulting you, it just means that trying to discuss this with you when you clearly don’t want to answer the questions and you want your agenda is a waste of time.  
    • Two milion?  You better check again.
    • I think people also have to remember where guys are in their careers. Diaz has almost 1500 MiL at bats.  He has over 700 at bats in AA alone and he has an OpS of 834 there.  Elias said that he would have been in AAA in 2019 had he not had injuries.  He doesn’t need to go to AA again.  He doesn’t have anything left there to prove.  He also just turned 24, so he is getting too old for the league anyway. Rutschman is an elite college bat.  He turns 23 in a few months.   By all accounts, he has looked great in the camps of 2020. You don’t just keep elite guys that are advanced in age and approach in the minors for that long.  It doesn’t happen and it shouldn’t happen.  If he was a 20 year old kid out of HS, it would be different.  But he’s not.  Now, he does have to perform a lot better than what we saw in 2019 but again, that goes without saying. Give him some time down there, make sure you gain the extra year this year and perhaps give him enough time to avoid Super 2 since he has so little pro experience but come early June or so, he should be ready to be here, if not sooner. The reality is, im fine with bringing him up as soon as they gain the extra year of service time in 2021.  I’m sure they will give him more time than just a few weeks though.
    • So I'm too stupid to "Comprehend" what you are asking.....But your not throwing insults! Same old Shtick!!!! I said that when Manicini was promoted it wasn't after a season where he didn't have a competitive AB. There is nothing wrong with that answer other than that is the answer you were looking for! I said Diaz season where he hit .262/807 was at AA and not AAA. So therefore the 2 circumstances are the same. Anyone with a little bit of intelligence can understand these differences (SEE I CAN DO IT ALSO!). Also ..... Diaz was a highly sought after IFA that got a 2 million dollar gift from the Dodgers that we received as a part of the Machado deal. I'd assume you'd agree that expectations should be higher for a high priced IFR or a #1 overall selection like Adley compared to your expectations for an 8th round pick that received a nominal bonus. People were "Meh" about getting Stallings (a 5th rounder) for Iglesias
    • https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/astros/article/Astros-trade-for-pitcher-Hector-Velazquez-Orioles-15442933.php You might be thinking this guy.  He was traded so fast he probably never hit the 60 man.
    • You don't think it would be shortsighted to rely on traditional counting stats to determine if a player is worthy of promotion? why even have an analytics department?
    • Zero teams ever have had a lineup composed entirely of “complete hitters”.
