    I haven’t found them to be particularly aggressive under Getz.

    2021-22 NBA Thread

    As years go by I feel like bulls would have been so much better off keeping Gordon in 09 and not signing boozer. We had taj/Noah/asik as frontcourt already and boozer operated in the mid range where rose liked. Meanwhile Gordon > Bogans. The whole Gordon would have prevented Rose stuff was so much nonsense.

    Giolito could return in 5 days

    His duel vs. King Felix was epic. Also saw a ton of Scott Carroll.

    Sox could get back Pollock Friday

    I feel like it's supposed to be really nice this weekend. 80 on saturday. If it's not, I'm going to riot.

    Giolito could return in 5 days

    Dang I have tickets next friday. Seems like one of those seasons where I'll see like an unbelievable amount of VV starts. I think in 2015 or 16 I saw like 80% of Dylan Axelrods starts.

    That is an ideal James Beard game. On base 3 times and 2 SBs.

    Ball Talk 2022

    From Joe Sheehan's newsletter: ""Pitchers miss bats better than they ever have. When they don’t, the new baseball keeps them safe from harm. The lost home runs are just becoming flyball outs. In 2021, batters hit .225 on flyballs and slugged .914. Those numbers are .194 and .562 this year. No, I don’t think that’s just April or small sample size or a shortened spring. Statcast is reading the same things. It projects an expected slugging of .969 on flyballs this season. The actual number is .721. It projects a wOBA of .504. The actual figure is 100 points lower. "It’s the baseballs."" On the score this morning they discussed how Sunday had 12 baseball games playing (I'm guessing there were some rainouts) and only 15 HRs hit, the fewest in any april day since 1992. There are so many embarrassing things about Manfred's reign but this is so ridiculous. Be way more transparent about this, commit to 5 year runs of a ball, and give teams a year with the new ball before it goes into live.

    Football accuracy declines in cold weather (when the ball deflates), because it is negated by it being more difficult to throw with numb fingers. And you are thinking of this in terms of pitchers, when the person that is affected is hitters, who are say hitting a ball 112 mph with a 9 degree launch angle and flying out to the warning track like Aaron Judge on Sunday.

    The thing is this isn't the first April.

    I hope so, but again I just can't stand that this is a "surprise". The teams should have all the info on the ball from the league months before the season, not from an astrophysicist in season again.

    Ball Talk 2022

    Well, the thing is the NFL balls weren't altered and also is nowhere near the effect that the baseball has since we are talking about it traveling 400 feet + outdoors and dealing with more wind resistance. And in basketball, the NBA doesn't give players a ball that is different, have players play worse and say it feels like the ball is different, and claim the ball is actually the same. If baseball is going to struggle this much with the ball, it's wild to me that Manfred has sided with the version that makes offense so much harder.
