  1. August Closer Thread 2018

    Chapman just pulled from game...motioned to dugout for the trainer after throwing a pitch. Time to pick up Britton.

    When is Vizcaino due back?

    Gotta blame some of this on crappy decision making by Boone. Sev let 2 baserunners on in the 5th but got out of it. Boone throws him back out there for the 6th at 90+ pitches, after throwing a higher number of pitches in the 4th and 5th. Ends up putting some baserunners on in 6th, 2 of which score on his tab. Was really surprised Boone sent him back out for the 6th. You have a pitcher who has struggled mightily his last 5 starts, and goes 5 innings with 0 ER and only 5 or 6 baserunners...take him out and build on that momentum. Instead you put him out there approaching 100 pitches and higher volume in his last 2 innings, not smart IMHO.

    I may be completely wrong, but weren’t there reports that his ankle had some permanent structural issues (either ligament damage or arthritic condition) that he would just have to fight through for the duration of his career?

    So who gets more save chances...Hand splitting potential opportunities with Allen, or Lugo on a team that may not have many opportunities?

    Well, 2 SB's each in 3 of the last 4 games. Guess the Nationals realized that waiting for Harper's bat to come alive wasn't working, so might as well let Turner run loose.

    Yeah, that was BAD. Guy looks like he just doesn’t give a crap. Needs to be benched, he seems like he needs a message sent to him.

    I was at the game...looked fantastic through 4, wheels started coming off a bit in fifth, had trouble finding strike zone. Was helped by 2 poor base running decisions in the fifth (if I remember correctly). On the first, runner from second was held up at 3rd on a single, would have easily scored. On the second, Pina tries to score from second, thrown out at plate (should not have gone with his lack of speed). Overall though, I’d say he looked good. Having said all that, I have to add that I’ve never had so many distractions at a game. 3 full rows of fans CONSTANTLY changing seats, and the entire row in front of me of obviously non-baseball fans didn’t watch a single pitch, just loud gossiping, so some of my observations might be a tad off!

    This may have been brought up previously, but how is he in pass protection?
  10. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Outlook

    Anyone know why he's listed as DTD in Yahoo?

    That trade should never have been made. A fly ball pitcher will do well in OAK, not so much at Yankee Stadium.
  12. Bryce Harper 2018 Outlook

    All of the media hype just seems to have Boras' scheming ways behind it....just plant the seed in the media, and watch the hype grow.
  13. Bryce Harper 2018 Outlook

    Gotta say, I'm starting to believe this (the talk on the Sunday night ESPN broadcast of him getting $500-700M was absurd). If you are basing his value on his level of play, he's no where near worth that much. As for the "economic impact" he may bring, I'm not as well versed in those regards. Granted, his "prime years" are ahead of him, and he's very young now, but outside of his amazing 2015 season, his stats aren't worthy of $500M. Paying that much for "potential" seems a bit risky to me. I guess the real question isn't whether he'll get a contract like that, but rather is he really worth that much...

    He was originally scheduled to pitch today (according to Yahoo), looks like he’s been pushed back to tomorrow.
  15. Maeda or Rich Hill

    Both are sitting in my FA pool, thinking of picking one up and stashing on my DL. Who do you think is the better option as a long shot lottery ticket?
