    The quest for .500

    Tomorrow never knows.

    Keep bunting at the shift

    So this was one and only time in 2019 there were no infielders on the left side?

    The quest for .500

    To me it means the Angels are 28-29 since their 8-8 start.
  5. Glad that Marsh is extra motivated, but how do you call someone's bluff if they fold?
  6. Why does ratio matter? More people died. You think the families of these people care about ratios.

    Will Captains ever return to baseball?

    So I think what has been established here is that “captains” in baseball are dumb and worthless.

    The quest for .500

    No i watched it just fine but then i see him meltdown over a gopher ball this year and it tells a different story. The series was years ago, he doesnt seem the same guy today. Its just my opinion.

    The quest for .500

    Cool. Which 34 year old second baseman should we trade for the next Buttrey?
  11. I don't hate a rotation with Suarez, Canning, Skaggs, Heaney, and the best 5th pitcher we can find in our system (pena? trop? barria? jc ramirez? one of the injured F*ck-faces who we payed like 15 million for?). Skaggs and Heaney both need to step up, though. Obviously its still not "tip top", and our priority in the off season should be adding an ace to the top of it, but its starting to feel less like a huge open wound on the team.
  12. I don't know La Stella's stats since Chuck created this thread, but I don't think they're very flattering. Ohtani, however, has been a beast. I deeply apologize for not voting for him before.
  13. Read differently, but you clearly referenced MLB.com when talking about Trout. No big deal either way.

    The quest for .500

    I guess it will be exciting if and when they finally get to .500. It kind of feels like having a kid who keeps failing 8th grade, and then they finally move on to high school at age 17.

    You guys need to vote in La Stella & Ohtani

    https://www.mlb.com/news/shohei-ohtani-needs-final-push-for-all-star-game-bid Monday’s All-Star ballot update listed Ohtani fourth in the DH race, roughly 143,000 votes behind the Twins’ Nelson Cruz. The top three vote-getters at each position after Friday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline move on to the Starters Election, which will take place over a 28-hour period starting at noon ET on June 26 (you can read more about this year’s revamped voting format here). Resurgent Rangers star Hunter Pence currently ranks second at DH, but his health for the Midsummer Classic is now in question as he landed on the injured list with a groin injury. Cruz and Boston’s J.D. Martinez, the top DH vote-getter, are bona fide stars at the position. But don’t forget about Ohtani, because he’s been sensational over the last two and a half weeks. On May 31, Ohtani teamed with Mike Trout for back-to-back homers and later added an RBI single in Seattle. Since that day, he’s slashed .339/.391/.758 for a 199 weighted runs created plus that's tied for fifth-best in baseball. Ohtani has more than doubled his homer count since the calendar flipped to June, including one of the more impressive laser shots of the year that kickstarted his first career cycle Thursday. Ohtani came out hitting the ball just as hard in May as he did last year, when he finished within baseball’s top 5% in hard-hit rate (aka batted balls hit 95-plus mph). The difference was where that hard contact was going: Ohtani pounded more than half of his hard-hit balls into the ground through the end of May, putting him in company with hitters like Starlin Castro, Hanser Alberto and Jason Kipnis. But Ohtani has sliced that hard-hit grounder rate by over 15% in June, allocating his hard contact for way more damage in the air. In fact, a peek at Ohtani’s Statcast batted ball metrics in June looks a whole lot like the top 10 slugger he was in 2018. Ohtani, 2018: 50.2% hard-hit rate | 16% barrel rate | .545 expected slugging (xSLG) Ohtani, June 2019: 46.3% hard-hit rate | 19.5% barrel rate | .555 xSLG

    I think I remember Jeter having a C on his jersey, as well.

    Getting Buttrey worked out ok last year
  22. Gotcha. They have reworked the swings of quite a few guys so... no shocker if they are tinkering with him. But yeah -- I had not heard a lot of talk about his load from outside sources.
