Give Sisco another Chance

Yeah, he got 3 strike calls on one batter that were all off the outside corner.  I don't know if it was bad umpiring or good framing or a combo.  Otoh, he made me almost pull my hair out when batting he had a 3-1 count and swung at what would have been ball 4 twice - and struck out. Tell him not to watch Chris Davis anymore.  Btw, Davis' attempt to catch a very high popup to short RF last night... just awful.  He's not just horrible offensively; his defense is also unacceptible.  He has to go, but we all know that - as he continues to play.  Ok, back to Chance.    

Yes, that at bat annoyed me as well, particularly for a guy reputed to be a patient hitter.    But at least that double he stroked was sweet.

As to the Davis play, I thought Mancini was as much to blame as Davis.    And Alberto wasn’t blameless either.   Bottom line, someone’s got to catch that.

Patient hitters strike out some time. I think hair pulling out would be more apt had he not had a very good/patient AB early in the game to work a walk.

And I might have felt that way if I’d actually been watching the game during Sisco’s earlier at bats, but I wasn’t.

Fair. Wasn’t sure when you tuned in ;)

Our kitchen is inoperative for a few days, so we’ve been going out to dinner and not getting home until 8:30-9:00.    My wife’s pretty happy about it!

I laughed - me too.  Good to here he did have a couple good at bats.

He has 2 walks and all 3 of his hits have been extra bases, allowing for a .214 average but .960 OPS. 

One thing I'm finding interesting is his progression to hitting the ball the other way as he has climbed the ladder. Is he sitting back more and going the other way, having a slow bat and getting the bat on the ball, or is it something he really worked on big time?

He’s always hit the ball to all fields from what I’d seen, I’d like to see him turn on the ball with authority more often and he’d made some progress in that respect in AAA this year.

I believe he’s always had that propensity; A slow bat was considered concerning in the recent past, but he’s been yanking them out of Norfolk, so he may have the goods to turn on 97. 

Jimmy Palmer likes nothing more than discussion of speeding up the bat, thus far Chance is pulling the off speed & taking the outside heat the other way. He pulled the Cole knuckle-curve after fouling off his 99mph heat.

It looks like he whips the bat through the zone pretty quickly.  Doesn't appear to be a long looping swing by any stretch, at least to my untrained eye.

Agree; & on off speed pitches it looks like he’s able to keep barrel in the zone a bit longer, he just had another double on a breaking ball.

Encouraging because he looked awful on breaking stuff last year. 

An abundance of riches is a good problem to have.

That's why it's so weird when he goes ice cold suddenly and strikes out a bunch. As a guy with a sweet swing who seems very adept at going the other way, you wouldn't think he strikes out. I hope he's for real this time, but it's super early. I'm holding off on declaring anything negative about Stewart's early struggles, so I'm trying my best to not jump to conclusions about Sisco's hot start.

There's no reason why Sisco shouldn't be playing every day against right handed pitchers from now on. Severino's numbers are overwhelmingly better against left-handed pitchers compared to right-handed pitchers. Use those two as a strict platoon and I can see them getting some major offensive production from that position.

    • That draft was loaded with impact MLB players.  Heck, Aaron Nola went in the 22nd round of that draft (#679 overall).  Everybody missed out on that one.
    • Uhhh okay so reminding a guy he's married to one of the most famous and desirable women on the planet is suppose to make him feel bad? On top of beating their team to go to the World Series? Yep Wank fans are as dumb as they are annoying.
    • 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.
