Not a fan of the sac bunt there.

Expected runs per inning, first and second, no outs: 1.46

Expected runs per inning, second and third, one out: 1.36

Adjust for situation.  How likely is a ground ball and potential double play with DJ Stewart facing Ryan Wheter?  How likely is it that Hays can get a fly ball deep enough, vs the chance that he gets a base hit?

Yeah, stats say the sac move somewhat increases the chance of scoring at least one run in the inning in that scenario, but lowers your chance of a big inning quite a lot.  Just about what you'd expect.

With the increase in both home runs and strikeouts I think it's a worse play now than ever before (depending on how juiced the 2020 ball is).

This Red Sox rotation is brutal, are they really going to waste this lineup on their current rotation?

They should trade for Cobb.

Not as high as you’d think because Stewart runs better than you think.

My initial impression having watched about 6 MLB games so far is that it doesn't feel like last year's superball.  A lot of the HRs I've seen have been in the first few rows, I *think* only one team has had a 5 HR game so far (White Sox yesterday), and I have yet to see one of those fly balls that looks routine and then carries out and surprises me like we saw so much last year.

And it's certainly prime hitting/carrying weather around most of the country

Somebody needs to teach Garceau how to pronounce Santander's name. We aren't in the Bob Clemente era anymore.

It's not just a double play. A bad bunt can result in a popup or a force-out. (The popup can be a DP if the runners are in motion.)

I remember my friend showing this baseball card that he acquired, about 25 years ago.

    • People (including me) have been focused on losing that spot for Rule 5 protection if we retain Davis this winter, but it also impacts us every time we make a waiver claim and have to DFA someone to open up a spot for the claimed player.    
    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.
