Cobb cost himself 3 extra pitches in the 2nd inning by committing a throwing error. 

He struggled a bit with his control in the 3rd inning, but pitched himself out of what was a relatively minor jam.

100% of the outs that he recorded tonight (15 out of 15) came via the Groundout and the Strikeout.



15 OUTS: )  8 Groundouts, 7 Strikeouts

Jordan Montgomery is at 74 pitches overall for the Yanks.


The southeastern Pennsylvanians are trying to salvage a 4-game split with the New Yorkers.

Had enough of Garceau lately, trying something a bit difference.  Sound is down on the TV, have the radio broadcast on.  Let's see if I can synch them up time-wise.  

Radio is a good ten seconds behind TV so let's pause the TV and see how this works.

All the masks I have worn hook around the ears.  I noticed Mattingly's goes around the back of his head completely below the ears.

Yamamoto strikes out the side.

O's hitting stays the course against the Marlins.   Leadoff double followed by 3 K's.  Birds have managed one run in 3 games and one inning, now.

    • I don’t think we saw enough of Valaika defensively at 2B (73 innings total) to draw any conclusions about whether he’s better than Alberto.    I tend to doubt he is, but I don’t really have a strong view about it.     I thought Valaika did a nice job with the bat, and in particular, showed more power than I would have expected.   I’m not sold that he’s a .791 hitter, but he showed enough to hold his 40-man spot this winter.    
    • my takeaway from 2020 is Mountcastle, Hays, Akin, Kremer, and to lesser extent Mullins.   Santander and Iglesias did good things.  Means finished strong.  Hope.
    • Joe West and Angel Hernandez asked me to say hello for them.
    • Thanks for sharing that.  Don’t believe I’ve heard Martyn before.  Now, I’d like to hear the Foo Fighters cover it.
    • The great increases in homers and strikeouts have occurred in the last few years. I think it may be because the players are practicing putting backspin on the balls when they hit them. The backspin will make the balls travel farther, but it's also harder to put backspin on a baseball by hitting it. If you watch Sports Center when they are showing highlights of homeruns, they usually show in slow motion some of the batters' swings. If you see this from the camera angle that is near the dugout facing the batter, you can see that the batters are swinging using a downward angle. The downward angle will put backspin on the ball(if it is hit just right). It's also harder to hit the ball when your swing has that angle. So if the batters hit the pitches just right, the balls will have backspin and if those balls are in the air they will have more of a chance of going over the fence. But it is also harder to make contact with the pitch, which makes an increase in strikeouts inevitable.  Analytics have made the old idea of the level swing just something in the memories of us old-timers.
    • I like games when balls are put in play.  Mountcastle puts balls in play.  I like Ryan Mountcastle. 😉
    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
