Happy 4th everyone!

Noesi has struggled gravely this year, I hope that continues.

He's an extreme FB pitcher (.55 GB/FB) but has a solid LD rate of 17%. His HR/FB ratio is 12.2%, which is well above what it was last year and league average. It's also surprising given that he moved from Yankee Stadium (Pineda deal) to SafeCo. SwSt% is 16%, which is respectable but just below league average for starters; 64% of all his pitches are strikes.

Pitch F/X Info:

di-6N2M.png

FT=2-seam FB; FF=4-seam FB=Slider; CH=Changeup; CU=Curve

This is our first look at a project of Rick Peterson's. Evidently the FB is back for Tillman, and his mechanics are sound. Tillman posted a June which consisted of 28.2 innings of 2.51 ERA ball, and 34 strikeouts and just 5 BB's. Very excited to see Tillman toe the rubber today.

This.

care-actors.

Is it a perfect game? Chen could probably have had the no hitter if he had been willing to sacrifice the perfect game. Palmer talked about that a bit last evening.

I thought that last night as soon as Wells hit the home run. Chen didn't want to walk him, so he was in a corner on the 3-2 count.

I actually thought that Chen may have been relieved after it was hit, so he could just relax and try to win the game from then on.

That's what he actually said in the post-game.

    • So Mullins hits a combined .300 with RISP in 2022/2023, did only hit .213 in 2021 when he hit .291 and went 30/30 and has a slightly higher career batting average with RISP than he does overall and he is "not very good in RISP for careers".  It certainly appears that there is an element of luck when his worst year for hitting with RISP was by far his best year overall and his best years with RISP were weaker years overall, but I see no basis for concluding he is "not very good in RISP for his career". Am I missing something?
    • There’s a lot of SP who COULD be moved at the trade deadline. But who are the locks to get traded? I think it’s only Flaherty, Kikuchi and Fedde, and probably Crochet. And the Rays are likely to deal one of Eflin or Littell. If the Rangers are sellers, that adds Scherzer and Heaney, but that’s TBD. Anybody else? I think this is the main reason we could see some more off-season-type trades with players with more years of control than your typical 0.5 rental & 1.5 year types. Plus the phenomenon being talked about more of teams not being inclined to trade during the off-season when there are free agent alternatives. Hoping teams get more creative this year, like MIA and LAA with their SPs with more control.  
    • Meh it's a pooty tang 3 game stretch. Bad approach up and down the lineup, bad pitching, a bad series. This crap happens all the time to good teams. It'll get better.  Guys like Mateo, McCann, Urias, Hays.... meh. They are very replaceable. I think Mullins to a lesser degree because he gets such good reads & jumps in CF.  Now, the pitching.... we need to address the pitching.
    • The injury kept him out from June 18-29, so his June numbers were almost all pre-injury.  He did hit one of his two June homers on June 30 after returning.    
    • They don’t like his second base defense.  
    • Too much.  Urias and McDermott.
    • What would be the problem with Norby being the primary 2B with Westburg at 3B. Mateo is getting exposed yet again being a everyday player.
