I'm not moving any goal posts. This is again a basic understanding of statistics.

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2708637-matt-harvey-reportedly-was-partying-until-4-am-before-suspension-for-missed-game

Here is a prime example. It was later reported Harvey had been late MANY times before this incident where he flat out missed a game. He was never skipped or sat for his previous episodes of being late. Coaches don't sit guys every time they're late. This isn't little league. People are late to their jobs sometimes. The fact that you think that athletes are immune to the tardiness that plagues every other industry in the world is just hilarious. Regardless, this is taking up too much time to continue arguing so I'm going to drop it.

So how do you know this was Yermins first late arrival?  I have no problem benching a rookie for being late before his head balloons, but don't be lazy and just insert a guy who was deemed not good enough to be in the line up into the 5 hole.

Because It doesn't seem that TLR cares about winning.  It's the only logical reason for his managing this year. 

That would explain why he came out of retirement. He really wanted to ruin his HOF credentials.

Sooo When is it going to be warm enough for Jose? There’s a point where a slow start turns into...something else 

His career numbers in April are nowhere near this bad. It's his worst month, but he's never hit .200 in April before.

As long as he stays alive, he’ll climb into second on the wins list, after sitting over a decade second on the loss list. THAT and the l pathetic owner are the two reasons he is managing

Abreu bat has slowed this year 

Abreu is still hurt by the pitch that hit his hand. DJ mentioned it twice.

Stat guys, is Lucas’ release point the same as last year?  Seems a little different to me but could easily be proven wrong.

Walking Bauers? Should be bullpen time.

He checked with the HOF before taking the job.. if it could ruin his HOF credentials he admitted he wouldn't have taken the job.

I guess reputation would be a better word then. I didn't mean they would take him out of the HOF.

When I saw the fluctuation in his velocity it seems like something is a bit off with his delivery.

I don't think Abreu's problem is his bat being slow. His exit velos and hard hit % are still really good (although not as good as in previous years). His problem is that he's hitting 57% ground balls. That's about 12% more than his career average. It doesn't matter if he hits the ball hard if it's on the ground right at the SS. You could argue that he's swinging early or cheating on fastballs so he's rolling over the ball more. But he'd also have much lower EVs if that were the case.

La Russa didn't even ask Lucas if he's out of gas lol. Goes right to the pen.

Tony was able to put together a line up that was able to muster 4 hits yesterday and already has 3 hits today.

Mercedes late to park and benched.

Hence 518 ops fifth hitter.

I didn't ask WHY Lamb is in or for Lamb's stats. My question is why isn't Grandal DH'ing instead of Lamb?

Seems like he’s hooking the ball a bit more than last year...McKenzie really dies it exaggeratedly.

Because the starting catcher could get hurt and LaRussa is refusing to play Mercedes at all today?

Because Grandal isn’t good at doing much but walking?

For a team that isn't hitting, Grandal isn't exactly the answer. It'd be different if they weren't getting on base, either, but they are just flat out not hitting when it matters.

Amazing stuff.  Remember vaguely when that was a normal output for Yermin alone in just one game?

And Lamb is hitting? I think 30 GM's would take their chances with Grandal over Lamb, right?

Yeah, I can't believe he couldn't keep that up
