Playoffs are set

Recommended Posts

I can't find Steve's comment about Globe Life catching OPACY for postseason games if the WS stretches 7 (perhaps a different thread), but also in that spirit I heard this morning that Corey Seager is tied with Joey Gallo and Rougned Odor for most HR at the stadium in its history.

Also that Nick Anderson had 0 ALCS strikeouts after whiffing some 40-ish% in season.   Hopefully his needle is back closer to Full, and he'll do a lot of burning bright to get this towards seven games.

Hating on the Red Sox is fine no matter what the narrative is.  Dammit, SG, just quit with the "I'm right all the time schtick" and enjoy it.  Who cares if the narrative is stupid?  Sox are getting made fun of, can't we have nice things?

Lol..trust me, I’m good with them getting made fun of.  Hate the Boston teams more than any of them.

Boy, was Amsinger on MLB at lunchtime yammering about how the Rays might need Snell for 120 pitches tonight, getting stuff wrong that seems to be very obvious here.

The off days are back - the Rays have a near must-win tonight. The Dodgers are giving Buehler the extra rest for Game(s) 3/7, and are kind of/sort of just goofing off tonight. The Rays didn't get to use their Anderson/Fairbanks/Castillo "#1 Starter" last night. Snell was salty at the quick (to him) hook late in the ALCS, but he should be ready again tonight. I think that the Rays feel that he's their worst pitcher on a per-inning basis, so they aim to use him in the first 9 innings tonight.

Like his teammate )Tyler Glasnow, )Blake Snell )led the Major Leagues in Wild Pitches ...... but also like his (seemingly) wild-throwing teammate, he rarely hits a batter with a pitch. In his 5 Major League seasons between 2016 and 2020, Snell has only 2 Hit Batsmen in 556 Innings Pitched. ) O.o

 

Tony Gonsolin )has excellent raw numbers from the 2020 regular season. He had a 2.31 ERA and an 0.836 WHIP over 46.67 innings Pitched. And that's only a slight improvement from the 2019 regular season, when he tallied a 2.93 ERA and a 1.025 WHIP over 40 innings Pitched ....... he seems to be consistently excellent.

I find it annoying that MLB.com assumes that I’m a Dodgers fan and gives me the Dodgers radio feed without me asking. Grrr

F the Dodgers

I gotta admit I had not known Will Smith led the Dodgers in OPS over Mookie and Seager from C.  Ensconced at 5th ahead of the reigning MVP against all comers, DH'ing when Kershaw needs his bestie.   He doesn't have the pedigree of the Posey/Wieters/Zunino/Bart cohort, but he'll give some slow playing catcher talking points if we get the long wait.

This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.

Feels like Mookie could be Rickey if Mookie wanted to be Rickey (and could secure the Dodgers permission).

Would be nice to see Buehler have to try hard all season some season, but I don't think circumstance is likely to give that anytime soon.

Rays offense was a lot better v. LHP this year, so will be interesting to see if Urias doing the Corbin thing this year can really take a stardom step tomorrow against the fully rested Anderson/Fairbanks/Castillo ace.

For all that we're all in on the high spin 4S thing, I do notice Dodgers Treinen/Graterol/May all worm burners in key roles.

Ryan Yarbrough )is the antithesis of his 2 teammate)(Tyler Glasnow and Blake Snell))in regard to Hit Batsmen ...... he led the Major Leagues in that category this past season, having plunked 7 opposing batters in only 55.67 Innings Pitched.

But unlike his teammates )(Glasnow and Snell), )Yarbrough has a very low Walk-rate ...... in the 2020 regular season, Snell's Walk-Rate over 55.67 Innings Pitched was only 1.940. And for his entire Major League career over 3 seasons from 2018 through 2020, his Walk-Rate over 344.67 Innings Pitched is just 2.141.

Urias might have had the star turn with a dozen or more K's in a full allotment, but the pull before Yandy on Batter #19 and 4 2/3 innings TTOP orthodoxy in its pure form.  But the bullpen is a chink in the armor.  Brandon Lowe repping for the Terps!

It's fun watching the best having to try their best.  MLB having gone full NBA this year we only get it now.

I think Anderson got squeezed on that 1-1 to Pederson to set up the rest of that at-bat; had Lowe been able to pull off that catch, it would have been maybe the greatest shift extra out ever.

Rays streak of leads after 6th inning now at risk, I think they may need Glasnow to get to 27 outs tonight.

    • Lets look at both Santander and Nunez offensively at 26 years old Season WOBA WOBACON Barrel % Hard Hit % Exit Velo XBA XSLG XWOBA XWOBACON Renato Nunez .341 .453 12.1 36.4 86.3 .228 .433 .301 .388 Anthony Santander .358 .404 10.2 36.7 88.6 .286 .510 .338 .378 MLB AVG .317 .370 6.4 34.9 88.3 .250 .414 .321 .376 They are not significantly different though Santander is ahead in the most important OBA and especially XWOBA categories.  The key here is defensively value and cost. Santander is a switch hitting plus defensive RFer while Nunez is a DH. If Nunez played any position effectively, he'd be offered arbitration. Santander's issues have been staying healthy and he doesn't walk much, but then again, he doesn't strike out all that much either. Overall, Santander is a more valuable player than Nunez and this is coming from a guy who think Nunez is worth more than obviously the rest of baseball does.
    • Late to this thread but here's mine. Santander I don't expect any more than he gave us this year before he got hurt. But that's ok. A whole healthy year, that's a solid MLer. Hays... health is the biggest question. Total wrench in the gears. In a full year I would expect BIG things from him. He's not going to hit 30 HRs, but he might hit 30+ doubles and steal 30 bases. Play a stellar CF. I like Austin a lot! For a CFer he's what you want, a take charge guy. If there's a Bermuda Triangle pop up, and he can get to it, he will scream out and call everyone off. I noticed that from his first few games up. Not intimidated when he hit the bigs.
    • The original recording has a girl speaking Spanish in the background in a sexy voice. Like 40% the volume of Burdon. At one point she says in English "Are you listening to this?" Right after 3 minutes in. This 45... on the MGM label!  
    • YouTube came up with another of my favorites. That I have history with. 40 years ago my sisters and my cousins would listen to this 45 record endlessly! I was blown away by this song at 11 or 12 years old. Then 20ish years ago I found this live video online and was blown away a second time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i0DMbCKnAg click it
    • I don't know how other folks classify this... avant garde? To me this is Punk. Like Devo. An influence on Devo!  
    • Then what makes you think another team would give us value for him?
