vs. YANKEES, 5/05

Recommended Posts

That throw from center field is probably the weakest throw I've ever seen in watching 50+ years of baseball. Remarkable.

I've seen twelve-year-olds throw better than Ellisbury :)

First thing MLB Network commented on. Teams are game-planning on Ellsbury not being able to throw. Highlighted Tex's non-chalant grab of the ball on the bounce. No velocity.

This was why I didn't want us resigning Nate McLouth all those years ago. I just don't like weak arms out there[emoji1]. Especially in center!

Would you rather have Reimold vs Barbasol or Alvarez vs Miller?

Reimold, I respect Miller too much.

I get your point about not using closer on road in tie game but they wound up using him anyway.

My bad backwardsk said that not you.

When evaluating an OF arm, you look for the skid, or velocity after the bounce. Ellisbury's ball just died. It even had topspin of all things on it.

Impressive start. He's going to be a #1 before it's over.

Before this game is over ???

Absolutely. :cool:

The game is over.

Gausman pitched 8 shutout innings.

He may not be the official ace of the rotation yet, but he could not have done much more than he did to make his case.

    • Cobb in his postgame interview was solid and doesn't want to be traded. When told Palmer thinks he could be dealt if he continues to pitch well he had a change of facial expression like he was upset. He thinks their team is real and are in every game and likes it here.  The perfect answer after giving the team  basically nothing so far on his big contract. If he keeps going around 6 innings and giving up 3 runs or less he will be in demand and will be dealt. We have too many young pitchers ready to move up and they will  move his salary the first chance they get to a money team like the Dodgers, Angels or even the Red Sox. 
    • Ben predicts pitches regularly and is very informative. Is Ben on all of the shortened season games? I hope so. He is awesome! I think somehow he is helping the players and coaches. Not illegally just being around. Scott doesn't have much enthusiasm but think he will get better. I think no fans makes him that way. Ben is fantastic and holds things together.  Change is good!
    • I agree with everything said. The cutouts and noise will keep the players from getting bored or falling asleep.
    • Can't say I've been enjoying the commentary. Garceau has the same mispronunciations and inaccuracies as Thorne but without any of the energy and excitement. Ben McDonald just goes on about productive at-bats and bunting like it's 1990. Palmer had a little bit of that too, but he seems to have kept up with the advances in the game more, despite being 20 years older. The one positive is that McDonald identifies the pitches correctly and is pretty good at describing a pitcher's repertoire.
    • Horn blasts arent phony.  There's a group of 10 or 12 real fans who go to a gate of the stadium where they can see a tiny sliver of the field through bars and they sit in lawn chairs and stand on ladders and follow the game and blow horns and do some chants.  They wear masks and say they social distance.  The Phillies even turned on TVs over concession stands in their view so they can watch the game. They call themselves the Phandemic Crew or something like that. Aaron Boone and the Yankees actually complained about them saying the horn blasts were timed with pitches just like fans who try to disturb golfers by making noise just as they swing. Google Phandemic, you'll find articles about the m.
    • I like it.     Thought it was really a fun vibe in Philly.    I like their phony crowd noise too, complete with random horn blasts.    Overall, I think the sound engineers are getting better at what they’re doing with experience.
