post #2986 of 4162

I'm curious to see what roster move the Yanks make when Jeter comes back next week. I'm thinking it's going to be Nix which makes me sad. Statistically it should probably be Nunez as he still hasn't learned how to throw. The offense is good enough to absorb his marginally better offense.

 

It will probably be a reliever though, Huff? For the curious Nix WAR .7, Nunez -2.1

CALL me when you see a walk-off balk.

I predict Rules, Umpires and On-Field committees will be looking in to the "just pitch behind the guy" phenomenon.

^ or the crazy minor league walk off intentional walk wild pitch. So funny how each throw gets progressively worse.

Well, we won't have Phil Coke to kick around for awhile. Maybe, forever. Too bad. He's a nice guy. He just doesn't have any "stuff" this year. Last night was one of the most "blah" games that the Tigers have had in weeks.

Last week went to my first Dodger game since pre-McCourt. Nice that it was with a buddy who had second-row seats behind the Dodger dugout.
It's nice -- and a bit shocking -- that the Dodgers are actually fun again. And their recent run is especially amazing when you consider that after Kershaw and Greinke their starting pitching is mediocre, they have some pretty serious holes in their offensive lineup, and the bullpen has been pretty thin.

Belisario has a nasty sinker though. Too bad he can't throw it for strikes consistently.

You forgot about Ryu, who has almost shockingly identical numbers to Greinke.

Greinke: 12-3, 2.91 era, 1.19 whip
Ryu: 12-4, 2.95, 1.22

And Nolasco has gone 4-1 with a sub 3 era in 8 starts since he was traded from the Marlins.

I don't know if you guys read Not Graphs but this one is hilarious. Astros v. Little League

Fair points. I once owned Nolasco in a a fantasy league, so my opinion of him is forever biased.
Plus, he started that game I was at, and he pitched much worse than the results would suggest. It was one of those games where the Mets would get 3-4 hits in an inning and come away with one run, and the Dodgers would get three runs on a walk, an error, and one hit. Not that I'm complaining.
