    So is this a rule? The same way gravity is a rule? Josh donaldson missed 6 weeks in 2017. then went on to hit 31 HRs rest of season.

    ha i hear you. opinions are good! we should all have them. we just don’t need to form them immediately after something happens.
  4. August Closer Thread 2018

    I understand the idea that we take the information we have, 2 innings, and that’s all we can go by. I recently came to the realization, and this has been very liberating to me, that we do not need to have an opinion on everything.we have a choice we can make before making any decisions or forming opinions. We do not need to say, one way or the other, whether 3 Hrs in 2 innings in concerning or not concerning. 😃 what if i told you that back on 5/18/13 Jansen gave up 2 Hrs in 1 game! less than 2 innings. in just 2 outs!
  5. August Closer Thread 2018

    We have no idea why Hinch used Osuna and Rondon the way he did. saying anything one way or the other is projecting and retrofitting the outcomes around our biases. until the decision maker and thought process owner AJ hinch makes a decision... if you are able to roster 1 of these guys then do it. if you are able to roster both then do it. we can sit here and debate but no one knows anything and trying to predict anything in life other than what goes up must come down is futile. we know nothing. Osuna and Rondon should both be owned until further notice.

    Denard Span, Kyle Seager, Ryon Healy. Yep that’s the best the mariners have to offer lol
  7. August Closer Thread 2018

    More and more of baseball teams have moved to using the best relievers vs the best hitters regardless of inning. Except, apparently, the most analytically minded team the Astros want to stick relievers to specific innings. It really feels like we are looking backwards and trying to craft a narrative around what happened. No one knows what’s going to happen and it’s all a guessing game. A closer is the closer until he is not the closer.

    Or maybe the A’s just wanted rondon to pitch against the opponents best hitters Khris Davis and Matt Olsen and no roles have actually changed at all!! 🤷‍♂️

    lmao um Osuna didn’t even pitch yesterday. you are reading too much into this one occurrence.

    His highest HR/FB% in the minors was ~10.0%. His MLB HR/FB% is ~18.0%. Maybe that comes down some, but the baseballs are also different.

    being on the bench can’t even stop him.

    He is.

    He's played 8/9 last days, maybe just a rest day?

    Not sure how to post just a pic of the graph, but here is a 15 game rolling average for Nimmo https://www.fangraphs.com/graphs.aspx?playerid=12927&position=OF&statArr=35,102,107&legend=1,2,3&split=base&time=game&ymin=&ymax=&dStatArray=&start=2018&end=2018&rtype=single&gt1=15 His O Swing has not gone up, his contact has not gone down. It's just his K is inflated lately. Are we sure we should be concerned here? Nothing has changed in his discipline or contact.
  15. Mike Clevinger 2018 Outlook

    Swinging strike rate is still there, and we have seen him do it before, so I don't think we should be too worried. The narrative I am going with is that because he is also pitching in the zone more, starting off 0-1 more, and his walks are down, this may be intentional. He's also going deeper into games this year. He is on pace for close to 200 innings.
