Any Clarity on Last Night's Sanchez/Stanton Situation

Did Buck protest?  I watched a cut up that had each broadcast breaking down the play, and that was asked by one of the Yankees broadcasters.

I wondered that last night as I listened on XM.  No one said he protested and I would think it would have occurred at the time of the ruling so I do not think so, but I also did not listen to the Alvarez homer....I dozed off, phone in hand and woke up at 4:30 and then woke up everyone else whooping it up.

I like that Buck knew.  I think it is hilarious that Boone thought there was a rule against a pitcher blocking the plate. 

I also like that Caleb Joseph knew

I like that Mychal Givens knew that he could block that plate as well.

They say he might manage some day. 

He acted as if he knew right what to do.   Almost automatic like.

I’m glad the umpires admitted they were wrong afterwards.     

Next best thing to getting it right during the game?

Yes, that saved the game.   

 

BTW, Boone looks a lil clueless to me as a manager.   Maybe its just hopeful . . . . . . . . that he's a flop.

I doubt coming from that family that he is a flop Or particularly ignorant of the rulebook. I do think he is overly reliant on the data not factoring external circumstances.

Buck said they went over this in spring training.    Semper paratus.

I honestly don't know if he KNEW he could block the plate, he may have, but I think what he knew was that he HAD to block the plate to stop the runner from scoring. Great athletic play by Givens and Joseph.

Interesting, didn't read or hear that. If they did practice that in spring training then Buck deserves some credit here as well. Fantastic job of preparing his team to be successful in the weirdest of circumstances.

I was thinking the same thing.  He looked a little pie-eyed a couple times when they went to him in the dugout.  Particularly on both of the calls being discussed here... Givens and the DP the Umps screwed up.  And there's nothing at all wrong with hoping the cylinders in NY are out of sync...:D

We can hope he flops

    • The mound is 66’ 9” from second base.  
    • The mound not in the middle of the diamond feels even more blasphemous than seven inning games or a runner on second to start extras. 
    • Everything you say here is correct...but 3 million is no money and it’s tough to just cut an 800+ OpS, 30+ homer bat. I think you keep him for insurance if nothing else.
    • Why bring him back?  Because you like him vs lefties?  To me, you either non tender him or offer him a 1 year deal for 1-2 million.  If he doesn’t like it, let him walk. He has no power and he doesn’t walk.  The league is adjusting to him.
    • Hanser Alberto started the season on fire, and ended it freezing cold.   We can’t make too much of where he was on hot streaks/cold streaks in a 60 game season.  He ended at .698 OPS this year, and he was that low as late as Game 75 last year before getting hot, then cooling off again towards the end of the year.   However, I do see two things that worry me: 1.   A significant increase in strikeout rate.   Last year Alberto only struck out 50 times in 550 PA, about a 9% K rate.    This year he struck out 30 times in 231 PA, about a 13% K rate.    When you’re a swing-at-everything kind of hitter, making contact is very important. 2.    He wasn’t as good defensively at 2B as I expected.   Last year he was plus on the defensive metrics at that position, this year he’s minus.   +5 Rtot to -2; +2 Rdrs to -2; +4.0 UZR to -1.3; OAA +3 to -3.    Defensive metrics take a long time to stabilize, but I take them seriously when they all point the same direction.   And, the eye test agrees with those numbers.     wildcard has pointed out many times that Alberto has pretty extreme L/R splits, and while last year I didn’t want to jump to any conclusions based on one year of data (.948/.609) given his lack of extreme splits in the minors, the same pattern showed this year (.917/.635).    It’s fair to question if Alberto should remain an everyday player. I still like Alberto, but I’d classify 2020 as disappointing for him.   
    • Thank you for not extrapolating the next 60 games…
    • Nunez was worth .01 fWAR. He can hit, but he’s so limited in every other way he gives everything back. He can’t even run. Someone will pick him up for free, but no one will trade for him. Not only is he not worth ~3 million , we have several guys who do what he does and other things besides. We can afford to NT him because we don’t need him, and we are better off without him because he takes a space better used for someone else.
