    Zack Wheeler Thread

    On the topic of time missed to injuries, is there a good resource that compiles injury information, time missed ... etc.? I always feel like it's a natural kind of thing to have on bRef, but I've never seen it.

    Palka designated for assignment

    No more awkward post-game interviews with Jason. Bummer.

    MLB announces Astros penalties

    If it's like other sports, the loser does not become the winner when the winner vacates. There just isn't a winner.
  4. Oh, puke. ­čĄ«Congratulations, you've officially graduated to insufferable.
  5. The same world in which so many people are so sure that the Sox will not pick up his option for next year. Frankly, it is exactly things like this that make me think we haven't seen the last of ole' Beef.

    Chris Sale

    He certainly fits the bill for what this team needs, a TOR LHP. But, I agree ÔÇŽ I wouldn't touch him/his contract right now. There are lots of red flags with him these days.

    Chris Sale

    He's also damaged goods right now. He got platelet injections for his left elbow but will be re-revaluated and may yet require TJS.

    9/27- Sox vs Tigers, 4:00, NBCSC

    In some alternate timeline ... The´╗┐ difference between getting the 7th versus the ´╗┐8th draft pick in the 2015 draft is of minimal importance #7 Andrew Benintendi #8 Carson Fulmer

    Good Lord, Bennetti. Give the Romo thing a rest already ...

    9/15- Sox at Mariners, 3:10

    Eloy is such a tentative fielder. He's obviously playing afraid. I'm much more concerned that his throwing arm is almost as bad as his actual fielding.

    For $9MM? You'd have to dfa my ass.

    FWIW, there was an interview with Nova a few days ago and he was very enthusiastic about coming back next year. He didn't explicitly say as a starter only, but he seemed to want to let his level of interest be known.

    Call up who? Mendick? I don't know. Perhaps they are rewarding him for a good minor league season. Perhaps they are trying to give the die-hards something to talk about. In any case their actions speak volumes about how they really feel about him. I'd ask you the same question ... If they're not going to play him, why did they bother to call him up?

    Kind of makes you believe they already have their minds made up. Same thing with not calling up Yermin. Seems that they have determined that he is a non-prospect and isn't even worthy of ABs in meaningless September games.

    Why Did Covey Start Tonight??

    It seems the concept of "short term pain for long term gain" is lost on some people.
  16. TA's footwork is just awful. What is Ron Washington up to these days?

    McCann Extension

    https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/boston-red-sox/j.d.-martinez-8690/ This says there is an option with a buyout. I would have assumed that this means it's a club option. How does a player option with buyout work? Does Boston owe him 2.5 million even if he decides to opt-out?

    I've seen this several times now. According to BRef, JDM can opt out after 2020 and 2021.

    White Sox at Twinkees 8/21/19

    Ron sold the exact bottom again!
  20. This is already getting old. This should be absolutely unbearable by the 3rd inning.

    Collins another HR!

    The rumors were (partially) true: Collins to AAA

    Oops ... didn't notice that the post with the stats was from August 9th.

    The rumors were (partially) true: Collins to AAA

    And keep in mind that Collins' Aug 2019 BABIP is only 0.182!

    8/14- Sox vs Astros, 1:10, WGN

    Rule 5.05(a)(7) (7) Any fair ball which, either before or after touching the ground, passes through or under a fence, or through or under a scoreboard, or through any opening in the fence or scoreboard, or through or under shrubbery, or vines on the fence, or which sticks in a fence or scoreboard, in which case the batter and the runners shall be entitled to two bases; 2019 Official Baseball Rules I believe the two bases are defined from the point where the runners were when the pitch was thrown.

    Did I miss a pitch or did Detwiler throw ten consecutive balls?
