Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

Recommended Posts

I feel like they've made this same mistake before:

Danny Santana led off Thursday's game with a home run and later walked, but the Twins fell to the Royals on Thursday.

Santana greeted Royals starter Ervin Santana coldly, taking him out to right field to begin the ballgame. The outfielder has been productive at the plate since rejoining the team to begin the second half, having hit six extra-base hits in his last 53 plate appearances. Overall, he's slashing .313/.347/.467 with four home runs, 22 RBI, and six stolen bases.

Ian Kennedy settles for a no-decision in first start back from DL

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

(12:03 am ET) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy wasn't a factor into the decision in his first start back from the disabled list Saturday night at home against the Braves. The right-hander permitted one run on two hits and five walks while striking out seven over five innings of work.

Over his last five starts covering 32 innings, Kennedy has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 3.59 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 23 starts (140 1/3 innings). His next start will come Saturday against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

CBS must have their own DL since he never went on Major League Baseball's DL..

David Ross - C - Red Sox

David Ortiz launched his 26th home run of the season ... yadda yadda ...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the "all Davids look the same to me" department; Rotoworld's front baseball page right here on this site featured this Ross title heading followed by Ortiz' exploits. Guess that was cause Ross was in the dugout all game with foot problems and Ortiz was his mere understudy filling in thus the easy mistake. That and they could be twins.

Jacob deGrom has been sent back to New York to undergo an MRI after feeling soreness in his right shoulder.

Well, that's no good. DeGrom last pitched on Thursday and the soreness started to crop up a couple days later. It appears the Mets will hold off placing him on the disabled list for now, as they hope it's just a one-start absence. Ultimately, they figure to play things safely with the youngster even though deGrom doesn't think it's a serious injury. Carlos Torres could make a spot start Tuesday if deGrom misses just one start, or the Mets could look to Jesus Montero or Noah Syndergaard if the absence will be longer.

Hahaha

It's a bad idea to look to Jesus Montero for hitting, let alone pitching. I'd pay top dollar to see him pitch.

Danny Santana finished 3-for-5 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the A's.

Advice: Like he's wont to do this season, Santana played catalyst for the Twins on Sunday -- after reaching on a bunt single, Santana stole second, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a Kurt Suzuki double to break a 1-1 tie in the eighth inning. He also singled and scored in the ninth inning. Santana has been a spark plug for the Twins this season, coming out of nowhere to bat .315/.357/.473.

Go home Rotoworld, you're drunk.

Looks like it's not a mistake... this time.

Good call. You pretty much just assume it's a mistake since they happen so frequently. It still looks incredibly awkward.

Adam Wainwright earned his league-leading 14th win on Thursday, holding the Red Sox to just two runs over seven innings as the Cardinals went on to a 5-2 victory.

Advice: Wainwright is tied with Wily Peralta of the division-rival Brewers at 14 wins. The Red Sox were able to scrounge out seven hits and a pair of walks, but managed just the two runs, both of which came in the third inning. Wainwright also struck out seven while lowering his ERA to 2.28. The right-hander will take on the Marlins on the road next Tuesday.

I guess that just goes to show you how good Waino was the first half really...

Maybe Rotoworld got tired of all the typos and hired an English major.

Anthony Rendon hit a two-run home run, his only success in five trips to the plate, as the Nationals battered Mets pitching in a win on Tuesday.

Rendon's sixth-inning solo shot was the second of four hit against Mets pitching on the evening, extending his club's lead to 3-0 at the time.

Justin Upton has been diagnosed with a mild left hamstring.

Upton suffered the injury Thursday while running the bases. He's considered day-to-day for now, but hamstring strains -- even mild ones -- can take over a week to fully heal. B.J. Upton replaced him in Thursday's game.

Oscar Taveras connected for a pinch-hit solo home run against the Padres on Friday.

Advice: The slumping Taveras was benched for a second straight game Friday in favor of Shane Robinson. Perhaps the home run will be enough to convince Mike Matheny to put him back into the lineup Saturday.

(Rotoworld.com)

He hit a pinch hit RBI, not a HR.

Nice to see the baseball forum bumped below not only football (understandable) but the NBA

Tigers purchased the contract of RHP Jim Johnson from Triple-A Toledo.

Johnson allowed three runs -- four earned -- in 4 2/3 innings of relief at Toledo. The former Orioles and A's closer will pitch in low-leverage situations for the Tigers.

I mean, I know Johnson's been bad this year... but even he can't allow more earned runs than total runs, can he?

The Orioles could skip Ubaldo Jimenez's next turn in the rotation or move him to the bullpen.

Advice: The O's toyed with the idea of bringing Jimenez back as a reliever when he return from the DL before ultimately deciding against it. However, the option is on the table again after the righty allowed six runs over just 4 1/3 frames against the Indians Saturday. For what it's worth, manager Buck Showalter isn't tipping his hand as to Jimenez's future role. "I'm kind of decided but I'm not going to [say]," Showalter said. "We'll see. we'll see how the next few days ago. His work day is the day after tomorrow. So, see how he is when we get there."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

so apparently buck showalter is now really, really, really italian.

Longoria was 3-for-4 with a walk, a home run, and three RBI in the Rays win over Toronto on Friday night.

Spin:

When the Rays are playing well, Longoria is typically a key component of their success. He now has 16 long ones and 70 RBI to go with a rather disappointing .254 average, but there is still time for him to reel off a not streak.

Alfredo Simon shut out the Cubs for seven innings in a no-decision Monday.

Simon owes his All-Star appearance to the Cubs this year; he's 3-0 with a 1.10 ERA in five starts against them and 11-10 with a 3.83 ERA versus everyone else. The win tonight was just his third against seven losses since the All-Star break. Sep 15 - 11:24 PM

Simon got a no-decision and the Reds lost the game - yet Simon got his 3rd win since the ASB...

Hanley Ramirez is in the Dodgers starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's game against the Cubs in Chicago.



Ramirez was scratched from Friday's lineup due to renewed soreness in his strained right elbow. While he has been banged up for the majority of the season, he has managed to play in 122 games already while hitting .281/.364/.449 with 13 homers, 70 RBI and 14 stolen bases.


LOL he definitely played Friday... and even Thursday!! He was scratched last TUESDAY

Big Word Alert:

Tanner Roark improved to 15-10, limiting the Mets to two runs over 6 1/3 innings as the Nationals hung on to win on Tuesday.

Advice: Roark didn't have the swing-and-miss stuff working -- he registered only one strikeout -- but was still able to handle the Mets adroitly. The right-hander scattered five hits without issuing a walk. In the process, he maintained his ERA at 2.85 and now has a 1.09 WHIP with a 138/39 K/BB ratio. Roark is on track to make his final start of the season at home on Sunday against the Marlins.

From ESPN:

Minor was a tough-luck loser Monday, holding the Nationals to two runs in six innings.
Spin:
Minor has had a trying year, but finally seems to be turning things on of late. The lefty has allowed no more than three runs in any of his last six starts. Minor will carry a 4.58 ERA into his start against the Texans this weekend.
