Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

one likely result would be even more emphasis on velocity if you shrunk the zone. anything straight and not really fast would get clobbered.

Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

I'm still waiting for someone to explain how the strike zone will be determined. Using PitchTrax or whatever, is the pitch a strike if it just touches the rectangle box? Or does it need to be completely in the box? Or mostly in the box? And will catchers revolt because those with great pitch framin...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

he hasn't played much for the senior side yet - I love his attitude even if he is crazy optimistic. Hopefully he can find minutes maybe even some before PSG leads 4-0.

Re: How much is 1 WAR worth?

If you genuinely believe that the playoffs are a crapshoot I think there's a pretty big middle ground between, "anything can happen between between 'typical' playoff teams," and, "a good team that unfortunately kind of hit the wall due to injuries and an imploding starting rotation p...

i mean that quote was probably just the result of Bryant getting his first taste of mortality and trying to give a reporter a quote to work with but shoulder surgeries are not a joke. this isn't an ankle sprain.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Saw some Cards fans griping on Twitter that an announcer said Javy has the edge in the MVP race because he plays 3 positions. They argued “so does Carpenter”. It amazes me that they think Carpenters defense at 1st, 2nd and 3rd is even in the same stratosphere as Javy at 2nd, 3rd, and SS. yea, but w...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Yeah I am not expecting 100% KB when he comes back. But they are clearly hoping and waiting that maybe happens. Even when he was dealing with this and playing he at least was hitting like .260 and getting on base at a decent route, the power was just gone. So that still is kinda a useful guy but ob...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

They gave Javy a Caught Stealing on that play last night. That's some hometown cooking. That was a steal. No it wasn't. He was picked off and an error caused him to be safe and advance. the reason for the error was the pitcher throwing to a moving target. giving him a caught stealing is stupid

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I feel like Javy has spit on more pitches out of the zone than in the past or maybe just completely unhittable pitches. Don’t know if that’s perception or reality. Getting himself in better counts all year. He’s had his share of Old school Javy at bats but not as often. seems like he is fouling off...

Obviously you wait and see how he does the rest of the season and in the playoffs, but if you had to make the decision today, would you resign Justin Wilson assuming the price is right? After a horrible first 3 weeks in May (and since May 26th), Wilson has a 2.88 ERA, a slash of .200/.301/.288, and...

Instead of a six man rotation, will the Cubs use caddy starters and have each go through the order twice? ie 4-5 inning starter and 4-5 inning reliever?

This his shoulder, right? Do we know how he hurt it? Like, from throwing? Swinging? Texting Bryce? I don't remember when it even flared up or whatever it is, when it started. I remember reading about his being used in the infield and outfield as a negative back in his first 2 seasons, because the a...
