Trying to Salvage a Game (vs. D-RAYS, 4/18)

Recommended Posts

Did you all see the stat on Joey Votto?  He popped out to the first baseman for the first time in his major league career (6,829 at bats).  That was also only the 7th time he has popped up to the infield in his 8-year career.  That is unbelievable.

Can you suddenly start getting allergies after never being bothered by them your whole life, at 50+ years old?

Pollen has never bothered me, when the count gets high and other people are miserable, at worst I'd get a little sniffle.   I usually have the windows open all spring.

But for the past 24 hours, I have been absolutely miserable.   I don't have much experience with allergies, but I'm pretty sure this is what I have.   What's the best thing to get?   Claritin, Zyrtec, something else?

Hoping tomorrow's big rainstorm washes away the pollen like it will tomorrow evening's Oriole game.

I do not heat the raise. I actually kind of like them and would not mind seeing them win the division, but I really hate the decision making that Created the rotation that we now have. It’s embarrassing and it was avoidable.

Huh? I’m sorry but I dont understand what you mean.

Wasn't it twice in the last week?  I think he popped one up to third base recently.

I should have posted pics from my neighborhood in California last summer with three fires in the area.  Visibility on many days was maybe a quarter mile

MLB Network guys were arguing about his HOF credentials.   They all think he WILL get in, but Harold Reynolds, and to some extent Bill RIpken, contended that he really didn't deserve it (yet) because of the lack of high hit & HR totals.   They didn't say he wouldn't make it, but they said it was "only" because of the modern emphasis on OBP and he isn't deserving.   "Fred McGriff must be sitting there with 5xx HRs and saying wait a second here!".    The other guy (forget who) said that Votto clearly deserved it and is one of the best players in the game.

Or maybe he was using voice dictation to input.

Votto will be a tough decision for voters.

The one I'm torn on was Dale Murphy - in his prime, he was one of the most feared hitters in the league (2x MVP).  He just didn't have the gaudy home run numbers (395) and the career BA wasn't too impressive.

    • They will settle for no less than Rendon, Cole and Strasburg out of Cashman. Or maybe a trade for Lindor. 
    • I find Girardi annoying, but I think he was a good manager.    I think Boone has done a good job as well.    Those poor Yankee fans will have to live with 7 playoff appearances, 3 division titles and 4 ALCS appearances over the last decade.     And 27 straight winning seasons.   
    • All Roch said was, “I’d expect another catcher to join the organization, even if for depth purposes.“ I think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’ll add a catcher or two before spring training.    It doesn’t mean that whoever they acquire will slot above the players you named.    That will be sorted out in spring training.   
    • I feel like there were several seasons in the last decade where Girardi got more wins out of that team than he should have.  I can't remember which years, but there were a few.  I felt like he managed every game as if it was Game 7 of the WS, using Betances in every single medium to high leverage situation.  Even in spite of their payroll, there were a few years where the on-paper talent wasn't quite up to their normal standards....yet they still won a lot of games.  I think no matter who is managing, the Yankees will always have their fair share of players who outperform their norms simply by putting on that uniform.  This year was a little more pronounced, but we have seen other sports teams over the years have very high payrolls and still land under .500 because things just don't work out.  I think the 2012 Red Sox lost 90+ games and then won the WS the next year.  The Yankees never finish under .500, no matter what.  That is pretty impressive.
    • Everyone was a fan of Severino when he put up an 818 OPS in the first half.
    • The Surprise Saguaros clinched the AFL West title over the weekend.    It appears likely they’ll face the Salt River Rafters on Saturday for the League title.    If Kremer pitches today, he’ll be available to start the championship game, though I’m not sure he’d be chosen.    
    • Thankfully it's a fantasy baseball site.
