who was our double header one day call up?

Yacobonis.

And we sent down Tayler Scott and called up Evan Philips in the ultimate deck chair rearrangement move.

Lefty Ty Blach also has a locker at the stadium so someone will go down before game 2 and he will come up and start game 2.     Could be Phillips if he pitches in this game.

So Gameday said in the first inning that Urshula reached on a fielders' choice, but Gardner made it to 2nd.   What happened, did Alberto just throw too late to 2nd?   But wouldn't that be an error and not a FC?   Or an infield hit for Urshula?   Doesn't make sense that Urshula would take an 0 for 1 on a play we didn't get an out on, without Alberto screwing up somehow???

It is amazing how they are just having batting practice...dug in, feet set, just sitting and waiting on the inevitable batting practice pitch in the middle of the plate...He should try to have them move their feet a bit but has not the skill to do so...

Howdy folks, I forgot there was a doubleheader today.The damage is not as bad as I expected. How is Ynoa doing? I know two homeruns, but aside from that, how does he look?

Just tuned in. It looks like the O's' streak of quality starts has ended at one.

Well - Ynoa has retired the last 7 batters he has faced.  One of them trying to stretch a single into a double, but retired nonetheless.

Well...so much for that.  There is no way Urshela is this good...has anybody checked the status of his soul or  in the clubhouse for Lola?

What are the Yankees feeding Urshela?  Or any of their other, violently overachieving offensive players?  These guys are redefining the concept of "career years."

    • Of guys throwing 100+ innings, yes. 
    • You don’t win many games when you shoot 33% from the floor and 25% from 3.  MD was very lucky tonight.  Their defense was great the last 10 minutes of the game and Cowen obviously made a huge shot, but they need to learn from tonight. Good quote from Turgeon after the game: "The basketball gods were obviously on our side," Turgeon said. "It was kind of a miracle win. We weren't very good. I wasn't very good. And we weren't ready to play, and they were."
    • I read that Newsome led all MiLB pitchers in strike throwing percentage at 73% as well as lowest walk percentage at 2.7% in 2019.
    • There's a lot of good stuff in your post. I'll look forward to the rest. Thanks.
    • I'll get to the other questions when I get a chance. I appreciate good questions, I have done so much research that it's good to get some of that info out. 
    • Excellent. Thanks for the detailed response.
    • Good question, the main reason to pick Alemais rather than Hechevarria is you have nothing to lose and Alemais will cost 655K (100K Rule 5 fee + league min) and is controllable for 6 years if he works out while Hechevarria might get similar to the 3M he got last year and if he's good, he's either more expensive or gone. That said Alemais isn't at the top of my list or particularly close, I just think he's worth thinking about and I haven't heard him mentioned anywhere else.  For the Holt question, it could either be guys that fit the same profile that I mentioned earlier. So vertical spin angle, hop on the fastball, high 3/4 arm slot, above average spin. Or it could be guys that have some fixable pitch arsenal things, like a guy whose curveball and slider are too similar, or whose curveball doesn't mirror fastball spin, or who unintentionally cuts his fastball.  Guys that fit the profile include Joe Barlow, Trevor Megill, Brandon Bailey, Hever Bueno, Jordan Sheffield, Bryan Baker, Wladimir Pinto, Scott Engler, Kevin McCanna in a rough order of preference. Some of these guys aren't legit options, I'm just pulling all the guys I have notes on fitting that profile.  Guys that have some correctable flaws include (this is a limited list because I don't have time to extensively study video on every player) in no particular order Luke Bachar (more seperation of breaking balls), Daniel Alvarez (fastball spin angle), Cam Hill (spin efficiency of the fastball), Eric Marinez (release consistency), Andrew Lee (cuts his fastball), Kurt Hoekstra (cuts his fastball).
