Lowther pitched a pretty good game today, but took the loss: 7 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K’s.  ERA to 2.71.

Missed the chance to gain a game on Erie. I don’t like this lineup with no McKenna or Diaz.

Without seeing the game-the line is better than “pretty good.” WHiP under 1, more than a k/inning, give up only 2 earned over 7.

Excellent outing from Lowther today: 6 IP,  5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 6 K’s and picked up his 13th win.    He should have two starts left this season.

Odd to have 10 hitters and only 3 pitchers on an All-Star Team.

Yusniel Diaz has better numbers than all three outfielders selected (arguable with Oliva depending on how much you value OBP over SLG, but clear cut for the other 2). Diaz presumably didn't play enough games to qualify due to injuries.

I don’t know why they choose this team before the season ends.   To me a choice between Lowther and Wells is really close and wouldn’t have wanted to make the call until the season was over completely.

I mean, they are both pretty much the same guy. I think the same one pitches and just has a stand in as the other guy.

Alex Wells is even more like Lowther than he is to his twin brother, Lachlan Wells.  Lachlan's fallen behind Alex and has had a disappointing season in High A ball.  I think Lachlan was expected to be the better of the twins a couple of years ago.  .

I've not been able to see either pitch in person, but I was under the assumption that Lowther was more of a strikeout pitcher. He is second in the league.

I think Joey was joking but they aren't particular similar. Lachlan Wells also for being Alex's twin, has a notably different delivery.

Similarities: lefty, not particularly athletic looking, wear glasses, not a ton of velocity, good command of curve ball.    I guess Lowther misses more bats and has greater extension on the fastball to help it play up, while Wells is a bit more of a command guy.

Lachlan has surgery either last year or the year before, I belive Tommy John.

    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
    • This is what he had to say: Lamar Jackson struggled passing most of the game and it appears that the league has figured out how to take away some of his easy throws. He threw behind and low to a lot of receivers. As usual, he remains the team’s top offensive weapon with his legs. Jackson isn’t a complete quarterback yet, but he can make big plays from anywhere on the field. Grade: C+ ————————————————————————- Honestly he’s pretty accurate.
