Throws one to backstop and then gets low strike.  

The Yankees have a special strike zone, don't you remember?

Look, Aaron Boone is using Britton in the game.  What a novel concept.

(sorry couldn't resist)

Well, he doesn't have Ubaldo available.

Chapman threw a lot of pitches yesterday. So why swing at the first pitch?

I don't know, it was a pitch they thought they could drive?  They didn't want to fall behind in the count?

How many runners did Severino leave in scoring position today?  He could have won this game with some better at bats.

  • Severino: 5
  • Wilkerson: 3
  • Nunez: 2
  • Alberto/Mancini/Peterson: 1 each

Can someone explain to me why the Red Sox and Yankees get this special strike zone?

Is the league coming down and demanding it of the umps?

Are all the umps fans of these two teams (has to be both right?)?

If this special strike zone exists why haven't other teams or a site like Fangraphs made a big deal of it?

Maybe fans of other teams have complained.

    • Ok, so we see some similar things with CD. Thats reassuring.  There’s still weeks worth of play to analyze so let’s have at that.  Good to know that Sisco is improving an area of deficiency.  I think Holaday’s tater probably sends a louder and more direct message.  In a GCL game with no fans in an empty stadium it would have made a great bang off that tower!
    • If a good chunk of that is against the Yankees and Red Sox, that will be all the upside I need
    • I watched most of today's game and was pleasantly surprised to see a more confident Davis earn the two BB's and the oppo single.  His D looked good but he did lumber around third to home and scored easily. On Sisco, he looked good behind the plate from the few innings I saw.  He has filled out more since last year. From Mike Williams:  
    • Yeah, agree with your second point, it's not a huge deal. And agree it's probably mainly a style of play issue. But with regard to your first point, back when we were in the ACC it felt like things were way more balanced (other than blatant ref bias in Duke games, and maybe UNC games). There were actually games back in the day where it felt like we'd get favoritism against the bottom feeders. Even our current out of conference games, you might see an extra call or two go our way. Simply doesn't happen in conference games. Guess it's the big ten style of play and the fact Turgeon rarely has had big inside bangers (other than Fernando). I do wonder how much of it is the intangible of how well the coach works the refs.
    • Wow, Delmon bringing to life the phrase, “Someone put up a tent, the circus has come to town!”
    • Yep.  We usually sat in the upper deck so the first glimpse of the green grass was walking up the ramps but as a little kid I wasn't tall enough to see over the side walls of the ramps to glimpse the green without jumping up.
    • Thanks very much.  I’m glad to.  I didn’t make it to the Braves game as I don’t do the road games so we’re sorry about that.  The positive is that I use those days, like tomorrow to visit the minor league complex and let you guys know what I see and learn there.  I didn’t see that prospect Langaliers behind the plate, but I think his hit was Carroll’s one that he gave up in Cody’s otherwise clean IP.     As far as Davis, my notes from the AB in the first inning was a little bit of patience as he sat on two down and in pitches consecutively before walking.  And then I guess it was a pleasant surprise to see a little opp field single dropped in too.  But at the workouts and practice sessions where I’m watching him play defense he looks solid with the glove and not slower because of the additional weight.  Turning and throwing with accuracy is in no way an issue.  Getting to balls and hops is in no way an issue.   I didn’t see the Sisco tag that you were taking about.  Was he showing good D too?
